Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

Hey FabFree! I know I look a little … casual today. It’s just one of those days when you don’t want to get out of bed and you only want to wear pajamas. Now, you know I love frilly, feminine and sexy just as much as the next girl. But some days you just want comfort. And if that comfort is cute too? Then it’s an all around win. Add a cupcake… my day is made!

My super cute new pj pants here are from Epicine and you can pick them for just 2 little lindens as part of the Femboy Hunt. I do love the Femboy Hunt, not just for the inclusion but the awesome gifts the designers always put in for us. So don’t miss this one. I’ll get back to work on it myself pretty soon…. right after this cupcake.

Subtle Urges

Subtle urges

Hey FabFree! This week is just flying by! before you know it, it’ll be Friday and time for weekend fun. But before all that, I have some fun casual but put together looks to show off for you. It’s always fun to dress up or dress wild here on the Grid. But I always find myself drawn to some of the more subtle “everyday” outfits. Maybe I’m just a little boring…

Anyway… I found this super cute sweater over at The Annex on their Teleport HUB gift board. Which, of course means it’s free to us Teleport Hub group members! And it’s not just this delicious cobalt blue… it’s a whole fatpack! That’s twelve colors to choose from. You’re bound to find one or two colors to love. The Teleport HUB group is a measly little ten Lindens to join and that gets you access to hundreds of free gifts all over the Grid.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Hey Hey FabFree! Welcome to the weekend, at last! And you know what you need to do this weekend? Shop and Hop! Cause that free gift bonanza is all over on the 17th. And when you aren’t shoppin’ an’ hoppin’ you might get a little Huntin’ in too.

My Shop and Hop gifts for the post are this super cute sweater and boots set from Envious (in the Aurelian Region) called ‘Kisses Love”. I love the bright flashy red and the thigh high boots are so unique. But get ready for some salty-ness from Juli… the set comes with a cute little short skirt too… a skirt that is so short, I didn’t feel comfortable even wearing it, let alone showing it on the blog. I don’t mind showing some skin… but I have my limits!   Ahem, anyway… this is not a dig at this designer or ANY designer or any one who likes showing off. It’s just not me.  So I tossed on my favorite jeans and still got a terrific outfit for Valentines day!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I am also enjoying this luscious cupcake treat free from Shop and Hop. This is the “Be Mine” cupcake from Boyberry. ( Aurelian Region) It looks so tasty… I must obey the cupcake. I am it’s now. The cupcake has a hold animation but it’s only 2LI if you want to use it as some sweet decor.

Last but not least is my new comfy sitting arrangement on which to eat my tasty treat. This is the “Love letters Ottoman and rug” from Ballade. This adorable set is the 1L prize for the “Love Hunt”. For that one little Linden, you get both the ottoman and the rug which can be used separately. The ottoman has ten poses in it that are well suited for guys or gals. Both pieces together are only a 5LI so you can easily add it to your decor. Oh, and while I was at Ballade… I saw that Poeme is have a sweet Valentines Day Hunt too. It was so nifty… well more about that in my next post! The Love Hunt runs until the 28th so get Hunting!

Heyya FabFree! I don’t know about you guys but it’s still pretty cold and snowy in my neck of the real life woods. In fact, I finally got to wear my super cute new snow boots today for the first time. ‘Cause when they talk about “lake effect snow” up here… they ain’t kidding around.  So I wanted to do a post with cold weather gear or boots or coats and SpectacledChic’s gacha “Better Days” at the Epiphany event is just the thing!

I was so lucky to get the Rare for this cozy set right off the bat. It’s always the way when I want a common ( I thought the common blouse was sooo pretty) I pull a Rare. But what the heck, the Rare is pretty cute too. The Rare coat and under shirt comes with a HUD for ten coat colors/patterns,  three colors for the buttons and eight colors for the undershirt.  The coat is a really nicely built item and had gorgeous details and textures. It also comes with the “hands in your pockets” pose and proper alpha built in.

There are eight colors for the rest of the gacha commons – a simple blouse, a solid colored skirt and a cute bucket type hat. There is also a second Rare in a plaid colored skirt.  All this for just 75L per play!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Epiphany runs until February 12 so don’t miss out!

Last Minute Rush

Last Minute Rush

Hang on FabFree, this is going to be a quick one!

Okay, so I’m late to the party for the awesome Kaithleen’s 300L gift card. But while I was doing the photo for yesterday’s blog post, the group notice came through and slapped me right in the face. ONLY ONE MORE DAY to go get my 300L card! That’s right, 300L just for the group members. The Group does cost a teeny 5L to join but wow… it’s still a great bargain. I spent most of my gift card on this gorgeous “Luna” top but there are tons of beautiful things to spend that Holiday ‘cash’ on.

The caveat is you only have until January 1 to grab that card. Of course the gift card is usable beyond January first.  So get down to Kaithleen’s and help yourself!

Sizes Included for the Luna Top

  • Belleza – Freya Isis
  • eBody Curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

I was so excited to go grab my gift card, I didn’t even change clothes before I popped over. And, being a lazy elf, I didn’t change out of my jeans and new boots! Then I thought… I’m just showing how  cute and versatile the Kathy Boots are! See how different they look using the texture change HUD?! Yeah… that’s it…. 🙂

In the Grey

In the Grey

We are coming right down to the wire for 2020, FabFree. The year can be counted in hours and I for one won’t miss this one. But at least the 2020 year was a good one for hunts and special groups and cool free things.  So this ‘almost the last post for 2020’, I found a couple of nifty giftys from some hunts that are also in their last hours.

First, is my cute pearl grey sweater  from Starlight Apparel. The “Ember” sweater dress is one of the prizes for the Up To Snow Good Hunt over on the Town called Short Leash SIM. Much like the Spookzilla hunt, each designer has placed gifts priced 0 to 25L all over the sim to find. This sweater is one of the 25L prizes. When you land, you can pick up a folder with all the info and prize guides for easy hunting. Now this IS an adult SIM so a bunch of the prizes are… um… adult in nature and no child avatars are allowed.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Okay, Derpy Juli story time. I saw these awesome ” Kathy” boots from Modern Nostalgia on the Peace on Earth hunt web page and I knew I had to have them. The dark charcoal color would go smashingly with my new grey “Ember” sweater, right?! Plus, they’re free! So I went and hunted them down, got home and popped on the sweater opened the boots, wore them …… and they are HOT PINK! What?? Nooo they matched the grey sweater! I’m so peeeeved! I wanted grey, like the picture… I ought to talk to the designer about false adverti….. oh. There’s a color HUD.  Derp.

So, yeah. There is a great color HUD with thirty five colors and patterns.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Both of these Hunts only run until the 31st so like bad old 2020 there’s only a short time left to go grab these great prizes!

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Hey FabFree! As I promised yesterday, I am back with another cute free gift I picked up over at the Beauty Sales Event. I’m still opening boxes today and honestly, there’s a ton of good stuff here.

This great little Jacket and crop top is destined to become a favorite in my wardrobe. This is the ‘Nala Jacket and Sweater’ from M.o.w, a new-to-me designer. I love this casual little combo! You get a HUD to pick one of four denim colors and eight top colors.  This is such a good solid build too. Nice details and perfect texturing. I’m absolutely checking out their main store if this is any example of the items.

The Beauty Sales Event runs until the 11th of December, so don’t delay. It’ll be on us quicker than you think!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Sizes – XXS- L

With such a massive world to explore like Second Life, it’s hard to keep up with all the Hunts and fairs and events happening all over the place. Happily, I stumbled across one I had never seen before and it turned out to be a bonanza of gifts and awesome shopping!

The Beauty Sales Event is a monthly event opening on the 21rst of the month and closing again on the 11th.  Since I’m new to this event I don’t know if each round is so packed full of gifts or if this is a special occasion. But I gleefully bounced around the booths picking up allll the free gifts.

Like this simply gorgeous sweater from Hilly Haalan. Most of you know Hilly Haalan is a major designer on Second Life and with clothes like the ‘Jazzy Sweater’ you will see why. This sweater is so perfectly made you can zoom in and still see details and there’s the perfect fit, even when moving around. Plus, and here is where I get all giddy, you get a HUD with 25 choices to change the color of the main sweater, the cuffs and trim, the buttons, the leather bits around the buttons, and even the cords holding the buttons! That is a LOT of choice! There’s also a resizable scarf with 25 choices of color/patterns as well. A-maze-balls!

The Beauty Sales Event still has about 2 weeks to go so you have some time to get over there but don’t miss it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a coupe other gifts to show off ’cause I couldn’t pick just one.
