On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Catching some voodoo…

At Night_001

While Aline was checking out music videos , I was outside on the docks listening to the serenade of tree frogs and crickets. I think I’m going to convince Aline to get out with me here more often. I could use some of her style advice to spice up my wardrobe. Maybe I’m too drab? I dunno! But I think this dress is a little voodoo/witchy so I think Aline would approve… what you do you think?

Catching some voodoo.

Get some voodoo for yourself and pick up this black dress from Santino Design by joining the group (it will only set you back 5 little linden) and then you can grab this great group gift. There’s actually a wall full of fantastic past group gifts that you can grab while you are there at the main store. I was tempted to show you some of the past group gifts as well, but decided to stick to this most recently out group gift instead.

All the sizes! It comes in some great sizes too. Just look at what you get:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

Well I’m signing off. I think I’ll crash head over to Aline’s place to see what music she is playing and find out if she’ll let me in to listen to her music with her! Maybe if I bring Twizzlers she’ll let me get away with it!

Catching My Breath

FreedoveRebelHope
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂

January tends to be a pretty slow month for gifts in Second Life, making our work here at FabFree a little more tricky… but it is an excellent opportunity for us to catch our breath and revisit shops and events that may have been neglected over the holiday rush.  There are plenty of wonderful gifts out there, we just need to find them!

A Vision In Blue… Or Red

This beautiful navy blue floor length gown is one of my recent finds at The Free Dove by !Rebel Hope.  It comes in XXS-L standard mesh sizes and includes the alpha layers as well as an additional red version of the dress too…  but speaking of Christmas – I’m tired of wearing red at the moment, so I went with the blue :).  The packaging says it was released in 2017, but I have no idea how I missed this stunning find!  The Free Dove group is free to join.  Have a look around and see what else you can find!

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂

Soft Golds

Fall Colors_001

The weather has cooled down the last few nights where I live… cold winds ushered in by thunderstorms. It’s made me think that fall will perhaps be here sooner rather than later. But that’s okay. I’ve always enjoyed the autumn breezes and warm browns and oranges that mark the season. It’s not quite cold enough for sweaters yet, but it’s cool enough I’m wanting to start my fall wardrobe, so I picked up a gift that tickled my fancy for that!

Soft Golds

I stopped by Guilia Design and picked up the Third Life Group gift called “Cherry Gold”. I’m not too sure about the name as the gift includes these great black leather pants plus this gold tones snake skin top and a separate mesh belt, but I’m going with it because I really love the outfit!

Cherry Gold comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus quality alpha layers for system bodies (if you need it). Remember, the Third Life group is only 10L to join if you are not already in it, so this gift will only cost you 10L. And the Third Life Group gives you access to gifts in stores all over the grid, so it’s well worth joining!

Fall Colors_002

Change of Pace

I don’t usually show off collar gifts, as they are not my personal style… but I love the quality of clothing and items at Salt & Pepper and I think the creator turns out some truly beautiful gifts. I wanted to make sure and share this new gift that Salt & Pepper has out for group members, as it’s incredibly well made and really lovely.

The “Toy” Collar comes in two versions “His Toy” or “Her Toy” and both are fully customizable with a hud that allows you to change the color of both the leather and the metal. (I’ve included a picture of the advertisement below to show the options). It is also resizable making it unisex as well. You’ll need to click the menu to find the resize option. It is RLV enabled for those who are interested.

The Salt & Pepper Group does have a one-time join fee of 300L, however there are quite a few very nice past group gifts still out for you to enjoy, and the creator is generous about putting out new, quality group gifts as well, making the fee worth it in my opinion!
