Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.
Anxiety Group Gift Choker
The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.
Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress
Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!
Here are the details, Enjoy!
Hair – Runaway – [RA] Waterfall Hair – Essential – Past Hairology Gift*Originally Blogged Here
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here sharing the freebie love with you! Today’s post features my favorite type of shirt, sweaters/sweatshirts, and my favorite style of necklace, a choker. It’s not often that the two items look well together, but I think it made it work! I hope you like them.
For me one of the best things about fall is it’s generally the beginning of sweater weather. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for me this year in real life, it’s still a tad too warm for sweaters. Thankfully I get to retreat to Second Life and enjoy the sweaters anyway. This particularly cute sweater is a FREE group gift at #bubbles. Included in the gift you’ll find this sweater in several fitmesh sizes, and body specific sizes. I think the off-the-shoulder style of this sweater from #bubbles makes it extra cute!
The choker Pru is wearing is another group gift, this time from Cynful. This particular gift is a thank-you gift for all the awesome Cynful Clothing & Co. customers and group members. The mesh choker/collar has a hud that allows you to change the wording between various empowering words like “strength” or “slay”. While using the hud you can also change the metal color of the word, as well as the color of the choker. This playful piece of jewelry is FREE to all group members, and the Cynful group is FREE to join.
Good morning world! This isn’t going to be my usual type of fashion post. Well…it is because of course I get to credit the awesomeness that I’m wearing, but this is about something far more important: BREASTS. That’s right; boobs, funbags, dirty pillows, baby feeders, fun for everyone, good old fashion BREASTESES!

Okay! Now that I’ve got your attention…let’s go over some facts about breast cancer (note: all of these facts were copied and pasted from http://www.breastcancer.org):
About 1 in 8 U.S. women — 12% — will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed, along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer (also known as carcinoma in situ). About 40,450 women are expected to die in 2016 from breast cancer, though there has been a decrease in death rates since 1989, with larger decreases in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advancements, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
For women in the United States, breast cancer death rates are higher than death rates for any other type of cancer, besides lung cancer.
Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2016, it’s estimated that just under 30% of cancers diagnosed in women will be breast cancers.
In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more likely to die of breast cancer. For Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women, the risk of developing and dying from breast cancer is lower.
As of June 2016, there were more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This figure includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.
A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member who has been diagnosed with it.
About 5-10% of breast cancers are thought to be caused by inherited gene mutations (abnormal changes passed through families).
Mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are the most common. Women with a BRCA1 mutation have, on average, a 55-65% risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetimes. For women with a BRCA2 mutation, the lifetime risk is 45%. An increased ovarian cancer risk is also associated with these genetic mutations.
The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).
What can YOU do to help? Well for starters, come out to today’s event!

September is Chiari Malformation Awareness Month. And this disease is something that one of my personal heroes, Kaeko Freenote, has suffered from for an incredibly long time.
What is Chairi Malformation, you ask? According to Mayo Clinic, Chiari (pronounced: kee-AH-ree) Malformation (also known as Arnold Chiari Malformation) is a condition in which brain tissue extends into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward.”
There are many symptoms to Chiari Malformation including but not limited to: pain, headaches usually after sneezing or coughing, dizziness (balance issues) and coordination issues. The most common form is congenital; but all forms depending on symptoms and level of severity can be treated with either medication, surgery or a combination of the two. Some forms of Chiari don’t need treatment at all.
While the information on Chiari is vast, there’s still plenty being learned about this disease. Research is being done daily over at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) among other places. I wish I could write more about this but without knowing more information, I’d be misinforming you and that is something I don’t want. So…in an effort to pass the good information and raise awareness, I strongly encourage you to find out more about Chiari Malformation, how to detect it and what you should know by visiting www.conquerchiari.org.
In the meantime, wear purple in support of your friends and family who are living with this disease. Rock the purple and conquer Chiari…together.
If you go away on this summer day Then you might as well take the sun away All the birds that flew in the summer sky When our love was new and our hearts were high When the day was young and the night was long And the moon stood still for the night bird’s song..
