Colder Than a Brass Toilet Seat in the Yukon

12-28-2017
…And that’s pretty darn cold

An arctic blast found it’s way to my part of the world this week and I have been experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the past few days.  I’ve done my best to stay inside, but there are times you just have to go out and brave the elements. I’m just glad my dog isn’t a fan of the cold either…

Wrap up and put a lid on it…

Today’s look is a mix of various gifts that are still available as of this posting. The David Sweatshirt by etham is a FREE gift at the Shop & Hop Sale and I was told it would be available until the end of the month. The sweatshirt comes with a texture HUD for different colors and comes fitted for the following body types:

  • Belleza
  • NX-Nardcotix
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Standard
  • TMP

TheWinter Holiday Scarf is the current group gift at ::K::. This scarf comes rigged in both men’s and women’s sizes and adds color to any look. The ::K:: group is FREE to join. And to top it off, (pun intended) I found the Wish Newsboy Cap by Couture Chapeau as a FREE gift to members of The Menstuff Lounge. The cap includes a sizer to get the proper fit. The Menstuff group does have a 50L join fee for non members.

Now… could someone please throw another log or five on the fire? I’m FREEZING!!!

Shopping Tips for the Modern Male

11-28-2017

It’s a dirty job…

This time of year, it’s unavoidable. No matter how much of your Christmas shopping you accomplish online, there are just some things you have to go to the traditional brick and mortar stores to find. I’ve discovered a few tricks to make those times when you have to venture out a little less scary.

  1. Weekends are a no go…  We may have time away from our jobs on the weekends, but hitting the stores during them is a big NO, unless of course you like crowds, long lines and getting backed into by careless drivers of electric carts. If you must venture out on the weekend, go early, VERY early to avoid the crowds.
  2. Weekdays, a big yes… If you do have a day off during the week (holidays excluded), this is a a time when you can actually browse the merch and not get bruised and battered.
  3. Late evenings… Hit the shops an hour or so before closing. The later you go, the less people you will have to fight to get to the things you want.

Hopefully, these tips will spare you unwanted grief and unexpected trips to the emergency room.

Shopping in comfort…

That’s the most important thing, really. Wear comfortable clothing. The more comfortable you feel, the more relaxed you’ll be, even in the most harrowing of situations like when a child spills a slushie down your leg… Yes, it has happened…. My outfit today is both stylish and comfortable. I found the Male Shirt Jacket at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS as a FREE gift to members of the Third Life Group. The shirt jacket comes in 3 fitmesh sizes and standard sizes S-L and with and without the shirt underneath. The Third Life group has a one time 10L join fee. I picked up the Wasted” Skinny Jeans on one of the many group Lucky Boards at REBELLION. The jeans come with a texture HUD for four different denim colors. You need to be part of the Rebellion group to play, but joining is FREE. And I’m still wearing my new favorite, the Wagner Flat Cap, the FREE SLF&O group gift at Fe Style.

Don’t let the holiday shopping blues get you down…

Anything But Lazy Daisy

Snapshot_003Hello there Fabulous Friends!  I am all lazy daisied up today…  with my new Daisy Top, my Daisy Hair, my Daisy Necklace and my dog… that I have named “Daisy”, although she is very much anything but lazy!  In fact, most days she is darn hard to keep up with.

A Little Daisy Will Do It

What inspired my lazy daisy look today was this super cute top by MOoH! that you can pick up as a free Third Life group gift at the MOoH! mainstore.  The Daisy Top comes in a large range of sizes and also includes a texture change hud that allows for three different daisy textures.  I am including the vendor ad below so you can see the options.

Sprinter -.-

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses!  While winter and spring duke it out in my part of the RL world today with snow falling, and green things wanting to grow, I thought I’d just go back inside while they sort it out and tell you about a few things I found this week :).

My cozy sprinter (spring + winter) outfit was put together with three group gifts that I picked up here and there across the grid.  Hopefully you’ll find something you like within my look and go pick it up for yourself.

It’s As Easy As 1, 2, 3 And FREE!

  1. SWEATER: My Oversize Knit Sweater is super cute with my hands tucked into it, and is available in a Maitreya Mesh Body size (will probably work with others too using the alpha hud that comes with your mesh body) as a free group gift at Scandalize.  This group is free to join and there are a ton of other gifts to pick up in the VIP area upstairs.
  2. JEANS:  I picked these dark washed, extra torn Applier Jeans up as a free group gift at Pacagaia Creations as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is 10L to join, but well worth it!  These appliers will work with tons of different mesh body types (sorry, no system layers).
  3. BOOTS:  Belle Epoque is where you will find the adorable laced Liesel Boots you see me wearing in today’s post as a free group gift to celebrate 1500 inworld group members!  This group is currently free to join as well.  I have seen it with a fee before, so don’t quote me that it will stay that way.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Gonna Soak Up the Sun 

ADRIATIC line Blue Hoodie & Jean Shorts

Gonna tell everyone to lighten up…

I’m feeling the need to head down to the beach, find a sunny spot to sit and dig my toes in the sand. And today’s outfit is perfect for such an excursion. I was lucky enough to win the Men’s Jean Shorts with Dark Blue Belt from the Midnight Mania Board at Adriatic line.

The water’s still free…

And so is another group gift I found at Adriatic line. By joining the Third Life group (type or paste in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/22874c32-502f-f4d9-fbdc-97205dad4b13/about   and join the group for just $10L , the Dark Blue Men’s Hoodie can be yours by clicking the vendor.

Every time I turn around you’re looking up, I’m looking down…

My pose today comes from PosESion. The Hunter pose pack is just $60L as were many other pose packs located on the second floor for both men and women. I’m just going to sit here a and remember that I’ve got no one to blame for every time I feel lame…

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.  Of course I tried to sneak his….  His sweater is always the softest warmest option.  It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch had a whole fatpack of their Agnetha Winter Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on a lucky letter “L”.   Included are eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I found these fabulous Vintage Jeans at Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.  This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again :).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.

Come Dancing

Hey FabFree!

Come Dancing

One of my favorite things about Second Life is finding fun flirty clothes that I’d love to wear in real life. And that’s what I found at Clementine, a new-to-me designer. I stumbled on this cool designer through Third Life, a freebies and hunts group in world. This is ‘Alana’ and it’s the free gift for Third Life group members from Clementine. Alana comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL, Fitmesh XS-XL and appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza.  I love the fun this fun look, I think it’s perfect to hit the dance floor in.

The Third Life Group is a tiny little five Lindens to join and you’ll find tons of great things each month. The Alana dress is the September gift from Clementine so don’t wait too long to nab it!

Seasons Change

Snapshot_001
Good evening Fabulous Readers :).  Just taking my pups out for a crisp autumn evening walk and thought I’d stop in to show you a fabulous and free group gift!

Tonight I am featuring The Autumn Outfit by MOoH! that includes the mesh plaid skirt and cardigan I am wearing.  If you are an inworld member of the Third Life group that costs just 5L to join, you can pick up this very well made gift for free!

I also wanted to share a bit of news about these sweet pups I have with me tonight!  The JIAN Lively Labs gacha collection is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha.  There are plenty of furry troublemakers to play for.  There are some that are static for décor, some that walk with you, some that wander and some you can even carry in your arms.  The rare walking companion on the ground beside me, spins around chasing his tail and digs in the dirt!  Too much fun.  At 50L per play, you’ll be pleased with whatever you get on your first pull!
