Fabulously Fan(Tastic)

Coming SoonHey Fab Free! I am hanging outside the Fabulously Free in Second Life Info Hub! There’s been a lot of talk about all the free gifts and sales we have over here by Jacx here and Arielle here, but I was admiring the beautiful Halloween decorating at the Hub! It provided the perfect backdrop to show off these cozy fall looks I created. 

Funny, Fan(Tastic) Sweatshirts

Have you all been to Tastic? They have the funniest shirts with amazing sarcastic sayings on them. On the left, the sweatshirt says, “I’ve been ready for Halloween since last Halloween” which is literally true for me. Halloween is my favourite time of the year in SL! This sweater costs only 1 Linden on the Harmony Hunt at Tastic.

The other sweater I am wearing on the right says “Resting Witch Face”. This is not a gift, but it is more in the spirit of the hilarious products Tastic is known for. I have been known from time to time to give that face when I’m not in a good mood. They have lots of other goodies and freebies at Tastic so make sure you check the store out!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite

Shoes with Stockings on Sale!

I am enjoying wearing lots of cozy stockings and cute shoes this fall season. I am fashioning some here. 

  • On the left are a pair of black boots with cat-themed stockings. The stockings come in plain, polka dot and striped black, grey, red and pink versions. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. I purchased these at MOoH! with the October gift card worth 150 Linden for group members. MOoH!‘s VIP group currently costs 100 Linden to join, and the boots and stockings are on sale for 50% for VIP members until October 28th.
  • On the right are the “Skelly Socks With Shoes” by ~MystRie~. These are available for 5 Linden on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Legacy, Isis, Venus and Freya. You are looking for a blue pumpkin on the sim to find these!

The Cutest Jean Skirt

The adorable skirt I am wearing in my two looks is a free gift at Free Dove at the Tastic booth. The skirt includes several texture denim patterns and it’s a must-have item! This skirt could be mixed and matched with many outfits. I am showing two textures of the skirt here, but there are more in the texture changer hud included with the freebie.

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post,

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

Find Your Wings

Don't Walk, Fly

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  I’m back to share one final prize that I discovered while participating in the Free Dove August Hunt.  The event ends soon, so if you like this shimmery outfit as much as I do, don’t walk, fly to the hunt trail.

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

I love dressing up as much as the next girl, but some days, I just want to wear pants.  What I love about this free outfit is I don’t have to give up any of my shine with its eye-catching texture and curve-hugging fit.  This sexy number features a gold corset, sleek leggings, and coordinating shoes.  Packed with details such as glittering sequins, a laced back, decorative seam work on the pants and golden chains on the heels, the Dancin’ Doll outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  As I stated in my post here, each of the hunt sponsors has 5 gifts on the Free Dove sim, and 5 hidden at their main location.   To add EC’s tenth hunt prize to your collection, you will have to journey to the Emerald Couture main sim, activate your Free Dove group tag, and locate the hunt object, which is a tiny green emerald.   Since both the hunt items and the group are free, you can add this entire ensemble to your inventory at no cost to you.  The hunt runs through August 31st, so don’t delay if you’d like a copy of this hunt gift for your very own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Heels for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Bright and Beautiful

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I told you about a prize I collected in the Free Dove August Hunt.  I’m back again today with a gem of a dress that I discovered completely for free on the same hunt trail.

Sparkle and Shine

Hidden somewhere on the Free Dove sim, the flirty Lacy Outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  With a delicate floral overlay applied onto a solid black background, high neckline, and sheath-style cut, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  I love the added border of silver trim on the hemline!  The package includes coordinating ebony, lace-trimmed heels with delicate ankle straps, so you will be all dressed up and ready to go without having to search for matching shoes.  To scoop up this hunt prize (#3 from Emerald Couture), you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but it has a very budget-friendly join fee of zero Linden dollars.  The hunt continues through August 31st, so there is plenty of time remaining for you to do some hunting of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

The Humidity Plan

The Humidity Plan
I sure have been in an ice cream and general comfort food type of mood these days.  The plan is – hit the park with the biggest most ridiculous milkshake I can find.  10 points if it has a macaron on it and a further 10 for any silly names like “unicorn cup of magic deliciousness”.  I think we may have a winner!

Summer Dresses

It’s all about an easy dress in the hot, muggy summer months.  We’re hitting humidity records in my part of the world today, so all I want is an easy outfit to get through the stickiness.  You’ll find this really cute dress (that comes with a pretty extensive colour HUD) at the Ben’s Boutique table at The Free Dove.  There are two other cute outfits too that have been recently added, but this one and it’s little lacy appliqué really called to me.  The Free Dove group is free to join, and you’ll always find something awesome to wear there!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

I don’t think I can finish this milkshake….

Golden Girl

Golden Girl

Well hi there FabFree!  I’m feeling a bit like a golden statuette at an awards ceremony tonight, and I’m loving every minute of it.  There’s something about the shimmer of gold that imparts a bit of richness to just about anything.  Plus…glitter.  Need I say more?  Glitter bomb everything!  (Except maybe make it like…environmentally-friendly glitter, yeah?)

Hunting Time!

It’s time for this month’s Free Dove hunt!  By now, you may have heard about how these monthly Free Dove hunts work- 5 free items at the Free Dove, and 5 at the featured store’s main store.  Today, I’m showing off one of the gorgeous hunt prizes that Nilsy has put out for free!  All you need to do is search for 5 vases hidden in the Free Dove wearing your Free Dove tag, then head over to Nilsy, join their free group and search for 5 more.  I’ve added the key below so you can see what else is up for grabs!  It’s all gone by the end of the month so don’t delay!
