A friend of mine just sent me an IM and it went sort of like this…

Loves Friend:  Hey, what you up to?
Love Trill:  Oh, just sitting in a forest with some baby wolves.
Loves Friend: O.o – That is the weirdest reply I have ever heard from that question.

It’s funny to think about the things we say and do here on the grid that are absolutely ridiculous in RL, but make sense in SL.  This must be one of those times…  Can you think of others?  How about when you tell someone “be right there, I’m just changing my skin!”.  Forgive me, I’m rambling… I know, I know – you are here for the free stuff!

Ok, so…  this adorable beige Bow Tie Dress is the new group gift at S@bbia!  Once you join the group you can pick up this group gift, as well as slap the lucky boards that are still offering the prizes that I have previously blogged [HERE].  The Bow Tie Dress is available in mesh and fitmesh, and the group is FREE to join!  You can snag these FREE knee socks on the counter at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Manduca/134/225/601 on your way out too!

My little Baby Wolf friends can be found at The Gacha Mania by .TMC. for 38L per play.  There are several little wolves to play for – some that you can hold, some that you rez, and even a couple little houses for you to make homes for them.  Very cute stuff!

Driving Miss Daisy

How are you all today? I hope you are having a great week so far! Here is some news about some great freebies and offers for you to enjoy!

!Soul have been very generous over the last few days with their free group gifts and today is no exception. They have a pack of two stripe dresses as their group gift today, which are perfect for a summers day bike ride! They come with appliers for lolas too! My adorable bicycle is from the Vespertine gacha at The Dreamers Factory and is only L$50 a play! There are some really adorable bicycles in there and they all come with cute poses! I also found a beautiful little pearl bracelet set by Imeka there for L$50 which comes in three pastel colours. My little birdy friend is called Miss Daisy and she is from the 8F8 gacha which is also at the same event! I think she is really loving the handlebar ride!

Here you can see a better view of the blue stripe version of the dress by Soul. The Eliza Cork Platform Wedges are by L.Warwick and are available at a discounted price at the July round of My Attic. There are lots more colours to choose from! Please note that you will need the SLink Mid High Feet to wear these.

Here I am wearing the red stripe version of the dress by Soul. My fabulous new hair is courtesy of ISON! It is called Bee and you can find it at their stand at The Hair Fair! I just love it. I adore curly hair styles and I am always looking out for more! It seems harder to make them with Mesh hair these days but I do hope very much that more and more designers will do more curly hairstyles in the future!

The two adorable necklaces are by Tokame and are the second part of the group gift freebie you can find at The Dreamers Factory. You can see the Unicorn Clutch bag which also included, in my previous post here. Here is a close up of the two cute little characters inside the little cages!

I hope you will all have a wonderful day with all that you do! Make it fabulous dear readers!

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. 😦 But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! 🙂 My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

Wicked Peach Advert Wicked Gift

Blogging soon!

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! 😀

Waiting for You…

Waiting for You

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you.
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you.

~Richard Marx, Right Here Waiting For You © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.

I’m an old-fashioned girl. And there’s nothing like a little anticipation to make that special moment a bit more… special. 🙂

When I saw this pose from brand-new pose store Positure Poses, I knew I wanted to find something sexy and unusual to show it off. So I was thrilled when Fairy Freng sent me her new gift – I love the sensual, wrapped skirt and the lovely, gold detailing. This gift is free to everyone – no group needed – in celebration of her new store opening. There is also a pretty pendant in the box, which I’m not wearing here. Instead, I’m wearing two new gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The cuffs are a group gift, and the earrings are free to everyone. I’m sorry that I’m not doing the cuffs justice – they really are quite beautiful. I tried turning them around to show the stunning detail, but they just didn’t look right that way. You’ll have to head over to Chop Zuey and see for yourself!

Sigh… the waiting really is the hardest part!

Wake Me Up

Snapshot_004I really should have mentioned this dress yesterday when I was talking about LIV-Glam!  As well as the group gifts I showed you yesterday, they are also participating in The Autumn Effect Hunt.  The hunt icon is very easy to find – and once you do – you’ll have the mesh Wake me Up Dress that I am wearing today.  It comes in their hud system that allows for six texture changes in a variety of pastel shades.  I chose to go with the lavender shade to match my new skin!

I won the Erin Skin in the midnight mania board last night at WOW Skins.  Erin comes with cleavage option, as well as a shape  (I am wearing my own shape).  These are group boards, so you’ll need to be a member which will cost you 250L to join, however after you do…  you’ll gain access to a ton of lucky boards and 2 MM boards as well as group gifts.

Duh! It’s Time To Visit CandyMetal

Snapshot_007

Good morning Fabulouses 😉  Have you checked out the group gifts at CandyMetal yet?  The group is free to join, and after you are a member, you can pick up two group gifts.  I’m displaying one of them for you today, but you’ll have to head into the shop to see the other!  The CandyMetal mesh Tunic Dress is available as a free group gift and comes with a handy hud that allows for several texture changes.

The boots I am wearing today are the Essentail Fall Boots for The Autumn Effect Hunt at Duh!, and are perfect for this time of year 😉  Pru showed you a few prizes from The Autumn Effect Hunt the other day (here).  This is a super hunt with a ton of really great and free prizes, so make sure you check out their blog for more information.

While I was at The Duh! store looking for the hunt icon, I picked up the Big Satchel in brown to complete my look.  This bag has been shown before by Serena and myself, but I thought I’d mention it again in case it was new to anyone.  It is available for 20L in several colours!

All That’s Fall

LOL
Good evening Fabulouses!  Don’t you just feel all warm and snuggly looking at that picture?  I know I do 🙂

This oversized, loose fitting Fog Blanket Cardigan is made by Loordes of London, and is currently being featured at The Wash Cart Sale in ten different colours for 10L each – all perfect for the upcoming change of the season!  I love that the hands are mostly hidden in the sleeves!  Are you one of those people who tucks their hands in their coat on a chilly day?  I am guilty of that habit :/  lol  but hey…  I’m Canadian and it gets really cold here sometimes!

The Gold Key Necklace mostly hidden under my coat is a free group gift at CentoPallini, with no join fee.  I have previously blogged this necklace months back, but it is still available and a sweet find!  Here is the link for the previous post of this necklace in case you’d like to see a closer up photo of it –>  https://fabfree.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/lucky-me/

It Was A Cold Winter Night… Hunt

Snapshot_007 It may have been a beautiful day yesterday, but it was a cold winter night, a night perfect for staying inside, logging into SL, and doing a little hunting!  I picked up several of the Cold Winter Nights Hunt prizes and put together a little hideaway for my sky which I will tell you about in just a moment, but first, I’d like to give you a little info on the hunt itself!

Fabulously Free in SL - SL Hunts Page The Cold Winter Nights Hunt runs until February 15th, includes 54 stops and each of the prizes are 10L. You can visit their official blog for a list of slurls including prize previews, so you don’t have to hunt until you are sure you want to pick up that prize, which I sure appreciate when you do have to pay a little for them.  I am personally really impressed with the quality of these prizes, and found them to be worth every little linden spent.  The icon you are searching for is a blue snowflake.

OFFICIAL COLD WINTER NIGHTS HUNT BLOG – http://coldwinternightshunt.wordpress.com/

PRIZE PREVIEW – http://coldwinternightshunt.wordpress.com/stores/

I am quite sure between Serena and I, we will be covering a lot of the prizes in this hunt… because it’s THAT GOOD, but here is a little taste to get you started!

At Vespertine, after you have located the hidden snowflake (watch out for that Cola Bear!) and pick it up for 10L, you will have the Frostwoods Skybox (mesh / 7 prims) in both bright and darker versions.  It includes the “I Live On The Moon Lamp” too.

Snapshot_004

Inside the skybox you will see that I have used the Frosted Mirrors from Wayward Muse, The Trompe Loeil Shelf With Framed Imagine Quotes, and the Vesta Fireplace & Rug Set in Cream from Digs.  The Pillow has comfy male, female and unisex poses in a menu.  All of these furnishings are also hunt gifts!
Snapshot_002

The outfit I am wearing is called Out Of Time, and is the prize that SAKIDE is offering, including the mesh skirt and blouse with the broach.  This blouse comes in a regular and a Lola’s version.
Snapshot_003

My skin can be found after locating the snowflake icon at Amacci.  This beauty is called Nuiko and comes with a regular and cold nose version of the skin, as well as cleavage layers and eyebrow shapes.

These sparkling earrings are not a part of the Cold Winter Nights Hunt, but can be found as  a free gift at Virtual Impressions.  The Samantha Earrings and also come with a necklace (which was interfering with my top – will show it with another outfit lol).  They are in a big box in the center of the store on the floor, priced at 0L.

The Season’s Hunt – All Bundled Up

season4_002
I am still wading through my The Season’s Hunt stash and I am finding so many things I can’t wait to share with you all!  The Cranberry Bijou Dress can be found at Ingenue and the Cable Knit Vest (which comes in a mens size as well) at Pivaaca.  The matching hat and scarf are from [NSD].

The Pieces of Autumn Bench below is what you will find by locating the pumpkin at Vespertine.  It has a few comfy sit poses and makes for a great Autumn furniture piece.

season4_001

 The skin I am wearing is not part of The Season’s Hunt, however… it is free and you can pick it up by joining the free Al Vulo Group and smacking the group gift sign!  This skin is called Sally Anniversary Gift – Sunkissed and it is really nice!  I love the little bit of teeth that show through, the rosey cheeks and the frosty bronze eyes.
