Festival Vibes

Festival Vibes

I am totally ready for even more Summer vibes, FabFree.  You know, the kind that involve loud music, questionable food choices and possibly a ride or two.  I love the hippie-summer of love-sorta vibe going on right now, and I’m totally ready to eat potatoes that are inexplicably cut into a spiral shape.  What does that have to do with summer music festivals?  Absolutely nothing.  Read on!

Peace and Love

I almost plotzed right out of my seat (ha) when I saw that Alaskametro was participating in this month’s Free Dove Caring Hands Hunt.  You all know I love me some Alaskametro, and I will crow about it until forever.  Not only do we get their amazing makeup and nail polish this time around, but also some awesome clothing too.  I love every minute of it.  To take part, you’ll have to join The Free Dove group for free, then head to both The Free Dove and Alaskametro to find 5 prizes in each location.  You’re looking for festival passes.  You’ll see all the size info and other prizes (like skins and tattoos etc) in the ad below!  You’ve got until June 30th to grab them!

Heavy Reading

Heavy Reading

Time to get some serious studying done.  I feel I’ve been lax in the cultivation of my grey matter.   As Poirot would call them “zee little grey cells”.  So, I’ve gathered up some edifying reading material, and I shan’t put down this serious tome until I am feeling decidedly more intelligent.  Now, where are my brainy specs?

Non-Blonde

The Free Dove is back with another of their great monthly hunts.  This time, featuring BlondeQueen!  They’ve gathered up some very professional looking garb to keep you on track with everything you need to get done today.  To take part, just join The Free Dove group for free, and look for the little kawaii cats hiding around the building.  You’ll find 5 at The Free Dove, and 5 at the BlondeQueen mainstore.  Check out the key below for all the different goodies!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Happy Anniversary, Magika!

One of my absolute faves, Magika, is celebrating 16 years on the grid!  That’s quite an accomplishment!  To celebrate, they’re having a 40% off sale, and there’s a new group gift.  The group is free to join currently, and with your group join, you’ll be able to pick up these very versatile bangs that are a useful addition to any hair collection!  Also great for hiding scars! (ha!)

What are you doing to challenge yourself today?

Horses & Daisies

Coming Soon

Hey Fabbies! Here I am again to show you some delayed holiday goodies. I always tend to be slow collecting stuff up on SL this year, due to RL coming up and grabbing me away from my downtime! So I’m still showing Easter goodies! I brought some horse friends along for the ride too, and they are so cute. ❤

Daisies 🌼

This dress is an Easter dress, but it’s very versatile and could be worn throughout the spring season. Look at those daisies! Super cute. You will find this little number at the Hippity Hoppity Hunt @ Malus Park. Ari-Pari has 4 dresses available in pink, teal, yellow, and purple. Each dress has this lovely daisies pattern on it. You are looking for the green egg to find these dresses, and each prize costs 5L on the hunt! You have until April 30th to do this hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Kupra

Hair Hunter

Second, my pretty hairstyle is a hunt prize on the Free Dove Hunt this month! The designer featured this month is Alli&Ali Designs. You can pick up 5 free prizes at Free Dove, and 5 free prizes at the Alli&Ali Designs mainstore. Each prize comes with a really pretty colour hud and styling options. You are looking for a little shopping bag with a heart on it to find the prizes at both locations.

See you soon, FabFree!

Meet-Cute

Meet-Cute

It’s an excellent day for a trip to an art gallery. I find that most days are, but today seems to be a particularly arty type of day.  I’ll just wander about pretending I know things about art, and maybe I’ll have one of those moments that only happens in movies where some extremely handsome and tall fellow stands beside me and comments on the brush strokes of a certain painting and we fall desperately in love.   Stranger things have happened… especially in SL!

It’s Magic!

The Free Dove is hosting a heck of a lot of fun hunting this month, with not one, but two hunts – and lots of free gifts.  The Caring Hands hunt is what I focused on, with two prizes at The Free Dove from each designer that is participating.  I was particularly taken with this pretty and somewhat holographic dress by WitchCraft.  Isn’t it cool?  To get it, just join The Free Dove group for free, then look around for the little Easter baskets which contain all the gifts.  You can find all the information about the hunts going on right HERE.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Alice
  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Petite
  • Maitreya

Therapy

The artwork I’m pondering so deeply (or you know, waiting for my prince Charming to appear) is free courtesy of ArTherapy.  At their location, you’ll find a little art gallery nestled in a garden, with some fun free gifts to pick up while you’re there.  You can also visit their coffee shop, Brewed Awakening (such a good name) next door for some other gifts too…and of course, some coffee.  Join the free group and you can get these two canvases to decorate your abode.

Ooh, here comes a candidate!  How’s my hair?

No Rest

No Rest

Hey there Fabbies!  I’m super tired today, so I’ll hope you’ll forgive my lack of waxing poetic for just one day.  As you can see, even my dear Aline has her eyes closed for a bit of a rest.  But of course, there’s no rest for the wicked…and the freebie hunter.

Blessed by a Dove

I headed back to delve into the newness at The Free Dove (you have to check out their fresh new look if you haven’t yet) and found a few very nice items on the Masoom table that I hadn’t noted before.  This asymmetrically sleeved dress (or whatever you want to call it) is pretty striking, and it’s (of course) completely free.  Just join the free Free Dove group, click on the vendor at their table, and it’s all yours!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Happy Free Dove-ing!

I’m Lucky Tonight

Coming Soon

St. Patty’s Day may be over, but the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt is still raging on until March 25th. Let’s dig into a few more gifts from the hunt!

First off, my pretty skin is a prize from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. they have several versions of this skin in the hunt package with beauty marks, lip gloss, browless and other features. I’m wearing the version with freckles! The skin is BOM, designed for Genus heads and you get the full set for only 5 Linden.

My cute little shamrock tattoo on my face is the hunt prize at new.monday. There’s also a cute rainbow face tattoo on the hunt there too! Both prizes are free!

Lucky Tonight

There’s some other St. Patty’s-themed hunts still available to do on the grid. One of those is the
Lucky Tonight Hunt 5, which has some adorable prizes! I love the prize from Ari-Pari, which is this cute crop top and shorts set, which you can change to several colour options via a hud. The prize costs only 1L!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Legacy

Other Fun Finds

I had the chance to go all-out shopping last week, so I picked up a few more freebies to add to this outfit.

  • The pretty shamrock earrings are a free FabFree group gift at REA Fashions. The set includes a necklace too! The detail on these is excellent.
  • I decided to follow Desi’s advice here, and pick up the free 250L store credit group gift at Wicked Brat. I’m wearing the “Angel Eyes” which I got for free with my credit. Thanks Desi for the heads up! You can read all about it in her post here.
  • Finally, I found a great set of nailpolishes from Alaskametro at Free Dove. This is the “Alaska’s favs” collection and they are amazing! I love these nails. They include Omega and Maitreya appliers. See the picture below for the image of nail colours! I picked the glittery silver polish, but there are many options to choose from as you can see!

Shadowed

Shadowed

Things aren’t aways in black & white, right?  At least that’s what they say.  The subtle nuances of grey and the mysteries they contain are where most of our lives are led.  What exactly am I talking about?  Well, I’m sure we’ll never really know, but let’s just take a moment and ponder the beauty of black, white, and grey, and how it brings all the details into sharp contrast.  Oh yeah, and freebies. It brings them into sharp contrast too!

Free Dove Reborn

The Free Dove has undergone a major makeover!  The hard work that the owner, Palomma Casanova, has done really has brought new life to the space we’ve all loved for well over a decade.  This is a great time to go visit, and pick up some outfits that have been updated on the sly.  I hadn’t seen this great dress by Kaithleen’s before, and I picked it up in a flash using the free Free Dove group tag.  The dress is somewhat translucent, but you’ll find that all your private bits are covered as the dress gets darker around those sensitive areas.  Cool!

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

And a Hunt

While you’re at The Free Dove, why not take part in their March hunt?  Lybra has provided 10 different versions of their Seria heels for your hunting pleasure.  I was quite taken with the zebra print.  To grab yours, make sure you have your Free Dove tag activated, then search for 5 hidden doves at The Free Dove.  There are 5 other pairs hidden at Lybra’s Mainstore as well, which is awesome.  The Free Dove group is free to join, making these cool heels 100% free.

You Make me Happy

You Make me Happy

I’ve got a quick one for you, Fabbies!  Valentine’s Day celebrations are behind us, and bit by bit the gifties are disappearing from the grid – so hurry up and read on if you’d like a pretty pile of freebies!

Like a Dove

The Free Dove celebrated Valentine’s Day with a huge groaning table of gifts!  I spoke to the lovely owner of the Free Dove, Palomma Casanova, and she is poised to have these gifts removed.  She’s holding on for juuuust a little longer so that FabFree readers can nip in and get them before they’re gone.  Don’t wait!  I picked up this fantastic sweater and boots combo (with four different colour options in the HUD) by Stars Fashion for completely free.  Just join the Free Dove group, and click on the boxes on the table.  There’s always something awesome at the Free Dove to check out.  You can see all the Valentine’s Day gifts HERE, before they’re gone for good (and yes, there are few for the guys too!).  RUN DON’T WALK!
