Bad to the Bone

spring_009

Hey gang!

Easter time and spring conjure up all sorts of bunny-ness.  But I feel we tend to overlook the bad bunnies of the world.  Those cute, but very bad bunnies deserve their time in the spotlight as well, and so I bring to you a free goodie straight from The Free Dove, courtesy of Zoom.  This cute cropped Bad Bunny sweater is so cute and stylish, I’ve paired it with pants, but I bet it would be super cute with just about anything.  Skirt, shorts, even a sexy pair of undies (bad bunny says rawr!).  Speaking of these pants, they are *another* freebie, this time courtesy of Eternity via Ajuda Brazil.  Gone are the days, back in my noob time (eons ago!  lol) when freebies, well, you knew they were freebies.  They *looked* like freebies.  Nowadays, the freebies rival and sometimes surpass the clothes you shell out your lindens for!  So in sl, you can’t always say “you get what you pay for!” as it’s just not always the case!  So many designers are generous and they share some amazing work in their giveaways!  Props to them!  (and I never say props.  lol)

Now for the practical part of our program.  The shirt fits:

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

and the pants fit:

  • Classic
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

They also come with a 20 color HUD so these pants can match everything in your sl closet.  Yowza!

I’ve got soooooo much stuff for you gang!  So I’ll wrap this up here so I can go work on more!  Yay!

Ephemeral

Ephemeral
I’m hanging out in the potting shed (aka the she-shed) again, today I’m musing about the ephemeral nature of all things.  Ooh, what a cheerful subject you chose today Aline!  I know, I know.  I’ll try not to get too melodramatic.  We are all residents of a virtual world where it seems that few things are constant, except for a few of the things we’ve known since the beginning of our Second Lives!  I think that The Wash Cart Sale is one of those things that has always been around and heralds the changing of the seasons with a rare constancy.  Sadly, they’ve decided that this is the last round, as all good things must eventually come to an end, so we wish them all the very best, and a very giant thank you for the years of enjoyment they’ve provided!

Poème du Printemps

As I made my rounds through the maze of The Wash, my eye alighted ever so delicately on the offerings from one of our faves here at FabFree.  The lovely  Elysiane of Poème has put together some very pretty and colourful outfits that you can use for romping about, or for lounging around your skybox.   The top and shorts set costs only 25L (holy deal!) and the lovely matching sandals (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy and Slink) are also a mere 25L.  You’ll also find a sweet free gift at the Poème display. How sweet is that?

Sizes

  • eBody Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Some More Décor

Sequel are also participating in The Wash Cart Sale, and their display is where you’ll find this pretty potted tulip for just 25L, as well as the lovely matching side table (perfect for a spring refresh of your space) for just 50L.   There are a bunch of different colours to choose from for both items, so you can surely find something that fits perfectly in your space.

The Wash Event is running until April 7th, then everything will go poof for good.

Sad!

Soft and slow, watch the minutes go

As January is coming to a close I can’t help but wonder what happened to the time? It seems to be going by so fast and there’s no way to slow it down. With everything in the world, I’m thankful that I have this outlet to express my love, joy, sorrow, and complacency here with you. Think my moral compass is on a vacation, which is where my head has been the past few weeks, drinking a nice frozen beverage with some fruit hanging off the cup. So if you’re waiting for an invitation, here it is, let’s allow ourselves to take a vacation and forget all the worries or stressors! First drink is free ^^

Ocean Eyes

Coming Soon to Fab Free
Hey, Fab Free! I like making new avatars/looks, and I made this one in the spirit of Billie Eyelish with the green and black hairsyle. Do you think it looks like her? It kinda succeeded but I think she ended up having her own unique look… this new avatar I created is super cute either way.

Let’s get down to the details which are a beautiful 1 L mesh body and this great free sweater!

Sweet’s Ruth Mesh Body

As many of you know, I have been working on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing. I recently made a few updates to the page so you may want to look at some of the new bodies I posted. I decided to show off a body from that list, which is one of Ruth mesh bodies. This one is Sweet’s Ruth. Isn’t the body gorgeous? It fits many Maitreya clothes and shoes, although you will need to use the alpha hud to make many of the clothes fit. To use the alpha version of the body, just open up the box included in the folder that has the alpha HUD! This body is BOM and works with all BOM skins and other products. The Sweet’s Ruth mesh body costs only 1 L on the marketplace.

Here are some more details about the body:

Fits: Maitreya clothes and feet (flat, mid, and high) for the most part, with the use of the alpha hud provided.
Omega/Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?  This body is BOM only.
Bento? Yes.
Other Notes: Includes mesh nails with a nail colour hud. There is no mesh head included with this body.

You may also want to be aware of the following known issues about the body that the creator makes a note of:

“- A small glitch can appear between neck and head
(usually on high ground)
– A small glitch can appear with feet and hands in extreme poses.
– Medium High feet often need an alpha to fit Maitreya Shoes (provided!)
– Older skins with painted on nails will not match mesh feet. Use a nailfix! (provided!)”

Just as a side note, I used the Ariel head from LOGO to create this avatar. The LOGO group is free to join and every month in 2021 they are going to sell an older head of every month to group members for only 300L. In order to use the head, you need the 3.1 version LOGO customization hud. I was pleased to hear about this sale and grabbed the Ariel head up for that low price. The head is BOM compatible. There is NO mesh head included with the Sweet’s Ruth body, so you will need to use another mesh head of your own with it or get one of the mesh heads listed on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing to complete a mesh look. Alternatively, you can wear the Sweet’s Ruth body with a classic system head if you prefer.

Beatrix

Another item I am showcasing today is the Beatrix Sweater Dress, which you can grab at the zOOm Mainstore. I found this gift by using the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group, and they have many gifts that were available for free during the Christmas train event this group ran over the holidays. Technically, the event ended around Christmas time, but a lot of designers still have their gifts out at their store. You can look at the gifts using this page, although some of them may not be available still. It’s worth a look though because I found that quite a few of the gifts are still out! I had my eye on this lovely sweater by zOOm on the list and to my delight, it was still available! Simply join the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MSGN) group for free and the sweater is yours. zOOm has 2 free MSGN gifts out at the moment so grab them while you’re there!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Have fun!

Magic in the Snow

Magic in the Snow

On the weekend there was snow everywhere.  It fell for hours and hours, covering the world in a fluffy blanket, and turning the trees into lace overhead.  It was gorgeous, magical and full of wonder.  A few days later, and the world is a soggy mess.  I’m recreating the magic in SL, because I need it for just a little longer!

House Proud

The gorgeous house behind me comes courtesy of Dragon Magick Wares!  It’s their prize for the Candy Cane Hunt and will only set you back 3L and a bit of time searching!  You’ll find all the info and the hint on the board when you land.  You can’t beat a house for such an awesome price, so do make sure you head over there!  Won’t it look wonderful all decorated for the Holidays?

Zooming Around

Yesterday, I told you all about the Black Friday Bazaar that is running until December 1st.  You’ll find plenty of awesome free gifts, and this one by Zoom is just too nice not to show you.  The shirt is gathered, perfectly fit and really quite versatile – wear it with jeans or a skirt and you’ll be ready for anything!  To get it, head on over to the Black Friday Bazaar and join the free group to access all the gifts.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Spooking a Bit Early

Spooking a Bit Early

I know we’re still a long way away from Halloween, but I deffo need something to look forward to right now.  To that end, I’m spooking things up just a little bit with some fun gifts.

Zoom!

It’s an anniversary round at Twe12ve, and that means that there are some gifts to be had.  Each booth has a 12L special gift for you, and I really liked this knotted tank by Zoom.  There’s something deeply mystical about it, and that’s making my super early Halloween dreams come true!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Ooh, Spooky!

These knickers from Mikan were too good to pass up.  I love the fact that the HUD has lots of different Halloween options for the design on the front, including jack-o-lanterns, bones, ghosts and bats.  So cute.  To grab yours, join the Mikan group for free, then click on the vendor.  Adorbs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Venus

Are you done rolling your eyes that I’m getting Halloweeny so early?

Cyber Spring

Coming soon to Fab Free

It’s still spring and it’s time to celebrate with cute spring-time themed animal-print dresses and some super cute accessories. Read below for the details on these free goodies!

Free Dove’s Makeover

The Free Dove has a lot of new stuff out at the moment. They are re-organizing the place to sort by designer, and I found this rad dress called Monica at the zOOm designer booth. I love the neon green and purple foxes pattern of the dress, which inspired my neon & cyber sping-themed outfit. There is a bunch of other goodies from zOOm at Free Dove and make sure to check out all the other designers booths while you’re there as well. All items at Free Dove are free when you join their free group.

I’m Spoiled

Spoiled a currently giving away this adorable backpack as a free group gift. You can change the colours and metals on the backpack; this is just a perfect item to add to your inventory!

I was also spoiled by the gifts at the current round of the Access Event, which are free with their group. The eyeshadow and lipstick I am wearing is a current gift there by Lisa Walker. The makeup collection comes with appliers for Genus, Catwa and Lelutka Evolution.

Have a great spring, Fab Free!

No Tricks Only Treats

No Tricks Only Treats

I love spooky season, and I’m really not ready for it to be over. Lately I’ve been in the mood for a Halloween movie night, which of course means comfy lounge wear. I picked up the Trick or Treat Lane gift by Zoom, and one of the current group gifts at Safira for this cute around-the-house sort of look. I also picked up these super cute treats by Andika at the Okinawa Trick or Treat Hunt, which by the way is free for one day only. So, keep reading for more details about each of these fun freebies, or scroll down for the full credits.

Zoom

Trick or Treat Lane will be going for just a few more days, so if you haven’t been I highly suggest going for some spooky fun shopping. Not to mention there are tons of free gifts. The tube top I have on is the free gift hidden at the Zoom booth. Packaged in a cute black treat bag, this gift wasn’t terribly difficult to find.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Safira

These shorts from Safira are my favorite of these spoopy cute finds. They are one of a few group gifts available at Safira. The group has a one time join fee of 50 lindens. The shorts have a texture/color change hud with 3 cute Halloween themed patterns to pick from, and several color choices for the waist band, and draw string.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya). Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink Hourglass

Andika

There’s an advent calendar style hunt happening at the Okinawa Panic of the Pumpkin event. Each day there is a new “Door of the Day” with a free prize. Simply knock on the door and when the menu pops up type “Trick or Treat” in the message box. Then your free gift will be sent. Andika’s door is the “Door of the Day” for October 30th. Their prize is this set of too cute Halloween themed treats with the matching bento pose. After October 30th you can purchase this prize for 50 linden.

Here’s What I have On:

Hair – Magika Olivia
Skin – Essences Sibyl
Head – Catwa Koura
Top – Zoom – Tube Top “Lil Monster” – Free Trick or Treat Lane Gift
Tattoo – Mister Razzor – Brujas
Shorts – .Safira. Halloween Short Gift – Free Group Gift/Group is 50L to Join

Electric Zoom


Electric

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I had a little time for a quick post and I wanted to share this lovely lace set with you. It’s a Marketplace dollarbie by Zoom. I don’t shop on the Marketplace, nearly as often as I do in-world, but when I do this exactly the type of find I enjoy most. It’s a brand I’m familiar with and doesn’t require me to wear a tag or join a group. Not to mention it really is just 1 linden. The set comes in the black version shown, and an equally pretty white version.

Sizes Included: TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Also, if you’re in the market for some new tattoos or facial hair, Mister Razzor has been having a huge sale, and there’s one day left. The sign says the sale is on until Saturday. I’m not sure how much time that really leaves, but if you hurry you can score Omega applier tattoos like the one Pru is showing for just 60 linden each. There are male and female tattoos, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. I’ll cross my fingers that this awesome sale will last through the entire day Saturday.

Here are the details:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney TSS Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Makeup – ~Shiny Stuffs~ CATWA Mei Applier set
Jewelry – ^^Swallow^^ Indira Face Jewellery 0.1
Outfit – zOOm – Silentia Top and Skirt – 1L on the Marketplace
Tattoo – ((Mister Razzor)) Bianca Tattoo – 60L until 6/8/2019
