Breathing Space

Breathing Space_001

Sometimes we all need a little breathing space. A moment of quiet zen to take a deep breath, visualize our safe place, and find inner peace. My “hunting buddy” took me to a little sim spot called La Vie and I went inside one of the little buildings and thought ahhhh this is breathing space. It was just that little corner where you could take space for yourself and relax!

Where it started.

I found this skirt… at Treze. It’s a new-to-me store and I happened upon this gift skirt there. The group is free to join and then you can pick up the skirt for free. It comes in several sizes in this lovely little print. A Maitreya size was not included, however I found that the Slink Physique size fit my mesh body perfectly. And for the price of free, it’s worth picking this pretty skirt up, to try on the sizes and see if one of the sizes will work for you!

Skirt sizes available:

  • Classic XXS + M
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Slink Physique
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

The right shirt…

I needed just the right shirt to go with this gift. I was hunting through my inventory when my friend showed me a picture of a gift shirt at Kib and I thought whoah, that’s it! Just the shirt I need! The free gift “cute shirt” at Kib is a free gift with your free group join and comes in both grey and pink (I’m sporting the pink in the picture above. You’ll also get several mesh sizes for this cute as a bug shirt as well!

Shirt sizes available:

  • Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!

The Velvet Whip and The Little Bone

Velvet Whip Mystery Gacha

Hello Fab Free’r’s I hope you’re having a lovely day! I know I’ve been a little absent this week, I’ve been nursing a little head/chest cold. Not to worry though, I’m starting to feel better! My personal stuff aside, I’m so excited to share these gorgeous items with you!

The Mystery Gacha Fair has started, and there are some incredible designers participating! I purposefully chose to do simple photos because I wanted you to really see how incredible the details are in these jewelry pieces from Velvet Whip. The necklace and the bracelet are just two examples of the Mystery Gacha items from Velvet Whip. There are 4 Rare Necklaces, and 8 commons, along with a mystery rare, all of which are equally stunning!

To go with these lovely pieces of jewelry from Velvet Whip, I picked up the new group gift from Little Bones. This sweetly casual hair includes the fedora as part of the style, and a color change hud with a large variety of pretty pastel shades. The Little Bones gift is called “Hurt” and can be found at he main location.

Last but not least, you might recognize my manicure. This Slink Nail Applier is from the Nail Me! Cart at the Cart Sale currently taking place at Fab Free Headquarters. I liked it so much, I decided to wear it again. This is from the “Heavy Metal” palette and it’s a steal at just $10 lindens, don’t miss out.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Answers are in the Stars

Answers in the Stars

The answers are in the stars. Even our ancient ancestors looked to the heavens for answers to the many mysteries of the universe. Search the night skies of Second Life with this Astronomers Set from Roawenwood. This complete mesh set has single and couples poses and includes the table with items, and separate telescope. It is perfect for both modern and fantasy role play. The best part is, the set is the MadPea Green-mire Hunt gift from Roawenwood!

** Just a special note about the Greenmire Hunt, it’s not your average hunt! You have to follow one of two paths, and complete objectives using a hud. The “Stargazer Astronomers Set” from Roawenwood is one of the prizes you can claim at the end. Here’s the website for more information on how to do the hunt.

http://madpea.blogspot.com/2014/09/green-mire-ii-gathering-introduction-to.html

While playing with the poses and really looking at all the great details of the Astronomers set from Roawenwood, I imagined myself as the apprentice to some great Astronomer, diligently researching and learning all that I could. I enjoy props like this one because they allow me to tell a story. Most of the outfit I chose is currently available at The Countdown Room, at a deeply discounted cost. My hairstyle called “Beauty” is a gacha prize by Olive available at The Arcade. Another version of this fairy tale themed hair was also shown by Tiana here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
