It’s the Freakin’ Weekend

It's the Freakin' Weekend

My dearest Fab readers, I’m about to scream it from the rooftops, so please do find the nearest item to plug your ears with – cotton balls, ear plugs, your fingers…whatever is closest.  I’m going to yell the thing that’s been on my mind since I got up this morning, and now it has come true, and I am beyond pleased.

IT’S THE WEEKEND!

TGIF

This lingerie has me feeling very sexy weekend at the moment, and it’s entirely free!  I picked it up over at Asteria with their myriad of other lovely group gifts.  It comes in a bunch of different colours, and the back detailing was far too lovely to pass up.  Head over to Asteria and grab it by joining their free group and clicking on it in the gift area to your right when you enter the store.  I think that deserves a bit of gleeful shouting in itself!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya

Have a great one, FabFree!

A Rose is a Rose

A Rose is a Rose

Valentines may be over, but lots of the designers and shops on the Grid are still showing us the love! How you ask? By making their hunts last allll month. Like the “All you need is Love” Hunt. Of course, most the Valentine themed hunts feature hearts and kisses and cupids but among all the typical items I was lucky enough to find this gorgeous vintage roses printed mini dress from RR.

The Elvia dress is what I call the perfect mini dress. Short enough to be sexy but my …ahem… behind isn’t falling out. Sometimes less is more, am I right? And just take a look at the details! The little zipper on the thigh and the perfect seams… This one is staying in my closet on a favorites tab.

The All you need is Love Hunt runs until February  28. But that’s coming quicker than you think… so go get your Hunt on!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

Hey Fab Fam! Welcome to Friday! 

I overheard some folks talking about how hard it was to find “good stuff” on the Grid that didn’t coast a fortune. And I thought to myself, “What???’ Of course we all know about the Fab… but there are a ton of other helpful sources for low cost or free things. I personally love the Teleport HUB group and today, I found a new to me group – Designer News. The group is free to join and has tons of notes and notices about new promos and gifts and sales. Then I saw that one of my fav designers had a gift up for the group and I was sold!

This is the ‘Rafaela’ dress from Pink Mango and you can pick it up for free as a member of the Designer News Group. Don’t you love the subtle shimmer? Pink Mango has a bunch of group gifts up in addition to their own group so you can get some awesome sources when you go to pick this cute sweater dress up!  Get out there and SHOP, my dears!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody

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!

Shhh…I’m hiding out in here cuz I’m trying to escape from all the things I’m supposed to be doing.  The thing is, you put on some lingerie and a robe and next thing you know you’re far too sexy to be doing anything as pedestrian as washing the dishes.  I call this look “the dishes can wait, don’t tell them I’m hiding”.

The Hunt is Afoot!

It’s time for another awesome free hunt hosted by The Free Dove.  This month, the prizes come courtesy of one of my absolute faves – Alaskametro!  If you’re not familiar with how hunts from The Free Dove work, then let me break it down real quick.  There are 10 prizes to be found, but 5 of them will be at The Free Dove, and the other 5 are located at Alaskametro’s main store.  To get the prizes, you’ll need to joint the free Free Dove group, and then hunt for the red heart-shaped boxes all over both sims.  You’ll find some really fantastic prizes this round, including lingerie, robes, makeup, nail polish and even skins.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE robe sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique & Small and Medium.
  • FREE lingerie in BOM layers and an Omega Applier
  • FREE nail polish with appliers for Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE lipstick in BOM and Omega appliers
  • FREE eyeshadow in BOM and Omega appliers

You’ve got til Feb 28th to take part!

Happy Hunting!

Hey FabFree! This is going to be a simple and to the point post.

Ewa Boutique is awesome.

They have not one but two FabFree Group gifts up as of this posting.  The gorgeous Andrea set I’m showing you here and several other equally beautiful gowns. Oh and when I say set… I mean set. You get everything – The gown the gloves, shoes, earrings and a beautiful necklace. And a HUD for the gown, the gown’s straps, gloves and shoes with ten colors for each. All for the generous price of… free.

I’m also wearing the latest FabFree Group gift from Zuri. The ‘Galla Headpiece’ looks as if it were made to compliment the gown doesn’t it? You can even add a sparkle with a “Bling” on and off switch and resize the piece to fit you perfectly. Black diamonds may be my new favorite.

So don’t delay… go get fabulously Glamorous tonight.

Patchwork

Patchwork

Hey There, FabFree! This is gonna be a fast one cause we don’t have much time to grab this Hunt prize!

I almost skipped this outfit. I do like the items at Feyline Fashions but they are old school Second Life – Mesh and Prims. While this isn’t a deal breaker for me… sometimes folks expect the latest and Meshy-est. But I thought ‘what the heck?’ I have a ton of friends on the grid who still rock their old school non mesh system bodies so why not!

This is ‘Patchwork Mary” from Feyline Fashions and it’s the 3L Hunt prize for the Multicolor Hunt.  And this is old school. The dress is rigged Mesh while the scarf and the sleeve “cuffs” are prims. But as you can see they are just beautifully made. I love the Boho patchwork skirt, it has such a happy hippy vibe! The outfit come with a backpack filled with a quill, parchment and some tasty apples for a snack. This is a great set for RP and it will be showing up for my character soon. There is a matching men’s outfit in the prize too. 

The one drawback…. The Hunt ends on Sunday the 31st! So get out there this weekend!

Sparkle and Shine

Sparkle and Shine

Hey FabFree Folks!  So, after I did the pictures for yesterday’s blog, I wandered around for the rest of the day in my fabulous gown. It was just like the old days back when I first joined the Grid… all ballgowns all the time! Which got me thinking it might be fun to do a few days worth of gowns. Cause… why not?

One of the oldest designers for gorgeous evening wear is Tiffany Design. And they did not disappoint. I found several lovely gowns up on their “No group needed” wall. Tiffany Designs has two groups: one paid and one free. Both groups have different gifts and lucky chairs available. But there is a small selection of no group needed gifts! You’ll be asked to pay 1L but it’s immediately refunded.

This is the Sia Glitter Mesh gown and you can find it on that no group needed selection. It’s a beautifully made dress that will make you the star of any show! 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
