Pizza is My Boyfriend

Pizza is My Boyfriend
Oh hello there Fab Free’rs. Don’t mind me. I’m just here in my new favorite lingerie enjoying some alone time with my new beau, this gorgeous heart-shaped pizza. Who needs a boyfriend when you can have an amazing dish like this?! It looks good. It tastes good, and it will never leave me unsatisfied. I’m in love! The lingerie by Decoy and the pizza by Lost Junction are both prizes from the XOXO hunt.

To get the prizes in this hunt, there’s a FREE XOXO hunt hud that will teleport you from place to place. Once you’re there, and you see the XOXO hunt sign and the little gift box type “xoxo” in open chat. If the fates align (or something like that) you may be sent the gift for FREE, or it could tell you to come back tomorrow. Don’t want to wait? You can also purchase the XOXO hunt gifts for 50 linden at each location.

The Lingerie – This very detailed lingerie is the XOXO Hunt prize at Decoy. The top part of the harness, the bottom part of the harness, the panties, and the bra can all be worn separately.  This FREE or 50 linden prize fits the Maitreya Lara body only.

The Pizza – This decorative pizza is the XOXO Hunt prize at Lost Junction. It is able to be manually sized. This prize also includes a pizza themed wall hanging not shown.

Hey again my little Fab Free Peeps!

There are so many awesome freebies out there right now, and you know the Fab Free crew is just itching to show you all the goodies that are strewn about the grid!  I’ve got some more news today about a cute free top and some free hair that I picked up on the XOXO hunt, which is perfect for days when you want to show off.  And seriously, that should be every day!

Ex’s and Oh’s…

I’ve been trying my luck on the XOXO hunt.  It’s a fairly simple concept – you tp to the location, find the box (they’re not that hard to find, I promise), and then in local chat, type “XOXO”.  If the box feels you’re being romantic enough, it will gift you something fancy for free!  If not, well you have the choice of buying the prize for 50L or to come back in 24 hours and try all over again!  You can grab the handy-dandy HUD on Marketplace to preview the prizes and help with teleporting from location to location.  I got lucky at both KoKoLoReS and Bodhi!

The top I’m wearing from Bodhi is a very hot, off the shoulders number which makes me want to make horrible puns about giving people the cold shoulder.  I promise I won’t.  It’s really pretty though, isn’t it?

Sizes

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

I also picked up this sleek and yet voluminous hairdo from KoKoLoReS.  It comes in several different shades, in my favourite colours: all fades where the ends of the hair are gorgeous shades of pink or blonde.  I of course went my signature dark with pink tips!  Best of all, both these prizes were completely free!

The XOXO hunt runs until February 18th, so hustle!

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Coffee and Gossip

I needed a little “caffeine therapy” on this rainy (in RL) Monday morning, and I managed to grab Sheidey to join me for some lattes and girl talk. I was so happy to see that spring had sprung at of my favorite SL spots, the Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe.

After gossiping about which hunts had the best gifts, and whether we thought Carson looked better in his Signature or Adam body, I had the nifty idea of snapping a selfie to share on IG. This must have been the laggiest day in SL EVER because what I thought would be a quick pic wound up taking about 20 minutes. Poor Sheidey was so sweet and patient while I fiddled with my slow-moving graphics settings, eventually taking about 3 photos before I crashed and gave up. But I definitely think this one is a keeper! 😀

Make Mine a Venti

Sheidey and I had plenty of Lindens to spend on large, expensive coffee drinks because we had saved so much on our fabulously free outfits! We’re both wearing the latest group gifts from Hilly Haalan: Sheidey in the red Evelyn Dress, and me in the pink Almila Belted Dress. Both dresses include matching shoes.

Sizes for the Almila Belted Dress include:

  • Fitmesh for Classic Avatars
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Sizes for the Evelyn Dress include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project (TMP)
  • Shoes for Maitreya, Slink, and TMP feet

The Hilly Haalan group is free to join. You can find these dresses in the group notices and at the in-world store (along with LOTS of other gifts). 🙂

Gaming therapy

Gaming therapy

It’s been a long, long day.

The type of day where all I look forward to is getting home, kicking off my shoes and popping in the first game within reach. Some days I dither about in large open world sandboxes or participate in cover based shooting or just appreciate the graphic epic-ness that is the summons in Final Fantasy 15. Whatever it is, it’s nice to stop ‘adulting’ for a while just as it’s always nice to find (free) merchandise in Second Life that harkens back to my gaming roots.

A gamer’s needs:

Headset to listen to epic game music with plus operating mic so that you can banter and/or yell at teammates (can we please try not to aggro the giant horned fanged thing 300 levels higher than us?!)  during multiplayer…Check. Snacks…Check. Console controller…Check. Granted I wouldn’t usually wear such a thing around my neck but if it did come in a cute necklace version like the one from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. pictured above, I’d probably be the first in line. Speaking of .{PSYCHO:Byts}. and cute, quirky gamer themed accessories the headset, pixel lollipop, and controller necklace is all part of the Gamer’s Heart set that is out from .{PSYCHO:Byts}. (can’t you tell that I’m having fun typing out the name of this store?) for the XOXO Hunt. These beautifully crafted accessories are unisex (there’s a longer version of the necklace for men) and permissions are set to copy and modify so that you’ll be free to make as many copies as you want before adjusting the position and size of these accessories to your avatar. Truth be told I converted this set when I first saw it on the prize list and it was a stroke of good luck that I manage to snag it for free. For more on how to get in on the fun that is the XOXO Hunt take a peek at my post {HERE}.

Etched in your skin.

Another prize that I badly wanted and was lucky enough to get on my second round of the XOXO Hunt is the Lovesick tattoo from Songbird. It’s been a while since I’ve indulged in some body art and these beautifully detailed hearts shaped facial tattoos is not only a good way to dive back into that but is great for keeping in step with the season. I love how it looks freshly etched into the skin, with some of the larger hearts leaving red trail marks on the skin. The gift package includes the classic tattoo layer as well as an Omega applier that can be used for all mesh heads that are compatible with the Omega System. If you want to learn more about the Songbird store there’s also a helpful all in one customer hud included with the prize as well. As with all gifts in the XOXO hunt, you can either win this great prize for free or purchase it from the vendor for 50L. The XOXO Hunt is running until the 25th of this month.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to see if my gear’s up to snuff to finish off this Leshen. Catch you later guys!

Family outing

Family outing

Achoo!

-snifflesniff- Oh the things I do for you, Commander. He’s been so sulky recently (I wonder why. He does have the treehouse to himself) and to remedy this I decided to take him on my latest outing. Something urban was what I had in mind, but he seemed insistent on the quiet little nooks and crannies and we ended up on snowy Honeycomb. It was quite lucky that I already had on this cozy outfit or else you’d be seeing a Sheidey-cicle.

Lifesaver.

There’s been more activity recently on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift page but before you go running off I’d like to bring to your attention this wonderfully comfortable gift from BlackRose. With a few sims still in the grip of Winter (let’s face it some of those will be Wintery all year long, it is SL after all) it’s best to at least keep some warm outfits at hand. A top candidate for this is the wonderfully textured Hearts sweater dress. Long sleeved and loose fitting, this sweater dress is great to move around in and I simply adore the contrasting white heart patterns on it. Though the dress’ high turtleneck collar is guaranteed to protect your neck from cool winds, the Hearts sweater dress also features an inbuilt scarf for added warmth. The scarf itself is complimentary to the outfit (and perfect for days when you don’t want to stand around choosing accessories for yourself) with it’s darker red tones and pretty Aztec-esque prints that add a nice dash of teal to the entire outfit. Sizes included in the gift package are; five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size. There is also a great alpha layer included that really helps with the fitting.

The Hearts sweater dress is free with your free Fabulously Free in SL group tag; take a peek {HERE} to get the details of how to join up. If you have another group slot to fill up, do consider joining the BlackRose store group as not only is it free but they have two group gifts (one of them blogged {HERE} by Love) out now for you to collect.

Family outing (accessories)XOXO

Valentine’s Day may be over but I don’t see why I should stop wearing red or forsake anything heart shaped until next year. I’ve only just gotten into the many, many Valentines themed hunts going on across the grid at the moment, with one of them being the XOXO hunt. This hunt puts a great twist on the traditional hunting format in that you’ll need to rely on lucky and charm (but mostly just luck) to get your prize. When you arrive at participating merchants, just spot the golden heart and type in ‘xoxo’ without the quotation marks in local chat. If that ‘lurve connection’ is strong, you’ll the prize for free and if not, you’ll have 24 hours to practice your wooing and try again. If you don’t want to wait for your objects of affection, however, simply pay the vendor 50L for your prize. The hunt hud is pretty nifty for getting around fast and is available from the organizer’s office or from the Marketplace for free.

My first round of the hunt yielded some pretty great results as I managed to snag these unique booties from Bodhi. Just look at the heels on these!! How could I pass up wearing something with heart-shaped heels?! ! (-Ahem- Must remember to be professional. -coughcough-) The open toe design and luscious deep red color also work in favor of these booties as do the gold studding that adorns its body. The Bodhi heart heels are made for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet only.

Another prize that I picked up on the XOXO hunt trail was the Hypnotic Hearts fatpack from Koffin Nails. I’m always looking for new manicure and pedicure stores (-glances guiltily at all the nail polish bottles on her vanity-) and was pretty excited to receive this gift from Koffin Nails. Included are applier huds for Maitreya and Slink mesh hands and feet and an Omega applier hud for mesh bodies compatible with that system. On the hud are nine striking duel colored combinations to choose from. Personally, I love how glossy these nails look and the detailing of the heart shape on each one is simply amazing. The XOXO Hunt is running from the 11th to the 25th of this month so go and try your luck!

And that’s a wrap. The wind is picking up and come on Commander, let’s see if Mama Bear and the twins would like to join us for dinner.

Catch you guys later! Oh but before I leave here’s a closer look at that amazing mani and pedi set from Koffin Nails.
