The Last Siren Song

The Last Siren Song
Well Fab Free’rs, we have officially made it into autumn. The hot summer nights have begun to give way to balmy afternoons and cool crisp evenings. Truly it is the end of mermaid season in the Western Hemisphere. I like to imagine all the sirens migrate to warmer waters this time of year.

The Dark Grid

The Dark Grid

Aline is being weird and spending her time in dark creepy places again.  I dunno, it seems to always happen this time of year!  Luckily she’s extra skilled at the art of kicking butt in cute outfits, so I’m really not worried about her.

Pack a Punch with Pacagaia

As I roamed through the dark recesses of the grid, I got my little mitts on the newest group gift over at Pacagaia!  The group is 100 Lindens to join at the moment, but not only do you get this pretty little romper (that has a fairly extensive colour change HUD with it), you also get a 250L gift card to spend in store!  I call that a deal!  Hop on over to Pacagaia and grab the awesome!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Time to kick butt and take names!

Baby’s in Black

FabFree: Baby's in Black

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  This fine Saturday, I come to you all dressed in black with news about a free group gift at Meva that is fitted exclusively for Maitreya Lara.

Trudi Meet Joan

When you join the inworld group at Meva, which will set you back 100L…  You gain access to a handful of free group gifts including the new group gift for September which includes the Joan Jacket and Trudi Skirt in black.  As earlier mentioned, these two items are fitted just for Maitreya.  These two items look pretty sweet together, but I’m sure they would look adorable paired up as separate items too.

Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 09/22/2018 – The Beautiful Ones

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs and welcome back to the blog! I’m glad you’re here, and always happy to be here myself. This week’s edition of Designer of the Week is all about The Beautiful Ones. I know that sounds like you guys, doesn’t it?! Really though, The Beautiful Ones is a ladies clothing brand that has been an established part of Second Life for quite some time now. I would describe their style of clothing as cute, casual, and relate-able. You will find some dressier items, but most of the clothes are the everyday type. Cute outfits and dresses you’d want to wear often.

One of the things that stands out about The Beautiful Ones for me, are their gifts. You can almost always guarantee that a TBO gift will be in their “signature” shade of dark teal blue. Right now there are two The Beautiful Ones store group gifts in the before mentioned shade of teal. The TBO group is currently just 25 linden to join. There are also two Midnight Madness boards, one requires The Beautiful Ones group tag, and the other is open for everyone (no tag needed). Lastly, but never least, there is a table with a hand-full of gifts. I think you’ll notice right away the colorful Fabulously Free in SL group joiner on the wall. You guessed it, these gifts are the gifts by The Beautiful Ones for other store-associated groups like Fab Free. You may even recall this post by Nevi in which she features the current TBO gift for Fab Free group members. Not yet a member of the Fab Free in world group? Have no fear, the Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Somewhere in Springfield Wood

Strolling in Springfield Wood

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After a long week at work, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off with my pal.  As soon as I logged in to SL, I slipped into this comfy outfit, and we teleported over to Springfield Wood to decompress and take in the beautiful scenery.  Aren’t the wildflowers in this meadow gorgeous?

Just Right for Friday Casual

My Laura Outfit today is the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from MOoH!.  With its frayed capris and striped top, it was perfect for our stroll through the sim.  I really liked the way the soft shade of blue in the striped top coordinated with the worn denim pants, but if blue is not your color, the generous designer included a HUD with three other color choices – gray, pink and red.  The open top is fastened with two buttons in front and features half length sleeves and a stand up collar.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find just the right size for you.  You can mix and match these separates with items in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, this set is completely free.  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport over to the shop and click the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes separate alpha layer for top and capris)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

While I was typing up this post, Ripley spotted a squirrel frolicking nearby and trotted over to investigate.  Apparently, Mr. Squirrel was not in the mood for company and scrambled up a tree.  Now the pupster is parked at the base of the pine, barking and whining.  I think I’d better go intervene so the woodland creature can get back to gathering stores for the coming winter.  Until next time, happy shopping!

All the way to the Bahamas for Blueberry

Details to follow

People who know Zsa will be surprised to see her on the beach because they know she is one of those weirdoes who doesn’t like the sun, and who is more than happy to be seeing leaves fall off the trees and welcoming Autumn.  However, when she learned of this amazing free gift from Blueberry at Les Fest, she just had to show it to you.  This is very time limited gift, you need to get there quick – I believe it may be up till Sunday, but that is not definite.

In the pack you get 3 shirts – the dry one I am wearing, plus full wet and half wet – along with a hud to operate an integral bra top that is visible under both the wet tops.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Oh HoneyAna!

The always generous Truth Hawks has treated his VIP’s to not one, but two new group gifts, which are both older styles which group members voted to be updated with the new textures.  As always, both hairs come in fatpacks.  The Truth group is 350L to join but that is around the price for one colour pack of Truth general release hair, so the join fee is nothing in comparison to the value you get.  Just a hint – if you join now, there is still the previous group gift sitting in the notices!

Flip Flops!

Zsa’s high foot flip flops are one of the many group gifts currently available at ZK – the group costs 100L to join but the number of quality gifts you get far outweighs that – definitely another fabulous value group to join.

Let’s Go to the Bahamas!

And finally, the beach you see Zsa sitting on, and everything else visible, including the bag and phone, comes from the Bahama Beach House from Maya’s Buildings, for just 50L for the entire thing.  That isn’t a special price, all Maya’s Buildings items cost 50L, and this includes numerous fully furnished houses, some very large.   Absolutely amazing value, this shop is one of my favourite finds ever on Marketplace, and I probably own the whole shop now!

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth HoneyAna (group gift / 0L / 350L to join) 
Top – Blueberry Dry Shirt Les Fest (free gift / 0L / no group to join)
Jeans – Blueberry Frank, full length
Shoes:  ZK Summer Flip Flops (group gift / 0L / 100L to join)
Backdrop – Maya’s Buildings Bahama Beach House (50L for fully furnished beach house and surroundings)

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

My Milkshake
Hello again Fab Free! So maybe my milkshake isn’t bringing boys to the yard, but it should bring you guys to Limit8! This strawberry milkshake, among quite a few other things, is a free Limit8 group gift in celebration of the current Birthday round of Limit8. Most if not all of the participating designers have set out a free gift. All you need to do to get yours is head over to Limit8, join the in-world group (It’s free to join) and click the little brown paper wrapped presents at each booth while wearing the Limit8 group tag. I spotted everything from poses and props, to clothing and jewelry. There are even some housewares.  I picked out a few of these awesome free gifts to share with you. Also, thanks to Love’s much needed and appreciated help, you’ll get to see one or two of the gifts in action. I hope you love them!

Eyes – So after I took the above photo, I realized you really can’t see these gorgeous eyes by NamiiChu. They are part of a set of mesh eyes available for free at Limit8. The set includes 4 pairs of individual eyes so you can mix and match them. These pupil-less eyes have an otherworldly look to them that I think is really beautiful. To get yours, join the free Limit8 group and click the gift box at the NamiChu booth at the Limit8 event.

So Close!

Face Moles – The second above photo shows these cute face moles by Arise a bit better as well. This variation is one of 6 included in the Catwa hud. I think they are not only super cute, but a great way to customize your favorite skin a bit further. You can get this Catwa applier hud by Arise for free at Limit8. Once again, don’t forget that Limit8 group tag!

Strawberry Milkshake – Alright, so I’m a sweet-a-holic, and strawberry is hands down my favorite milkshake flavor. So Pru taking home this free Limit8 group gift milkshake by PewPew! was simply meant to be.  This detailed strawberry milkshake by PewPew! comes equipped with a bento hold pose, which you’ll see in action in the video below.

Booty Dance – Finally, I could not resist showing you this free Limit8 group gift booty dance by Sync’D Motion. Thankfully, Love was willing to help me out by putting together this awesomely hilarious video. The dance is too fun, and well all things considered the song went perfectly! I do want to note that because Pru is holding the milkshake by PewPew! while dancing some of the hand animations that are part of the dance are not shown.

A tale of Ice Cream and Kittens

FF4 v3 final

Today we find a rather glum Zsa.  I told her that if she still wanted to buy stuff on top of all the freebies and cheapies all us FabFree girls hunt down, she had to get a job.  I found her one in the local ice cream parlour, The Sugar Bowl, but she is not impressed, and spent her days day dreaming about Elvis, and trying to avoid damaging her new manicure.

At least she dressed well for her first day at her new job, and her outfit includes 2 group gifts and a dress that cost very little.

The dress…..

….. is from Bowtique and available on the marketplace for just 50L includes a 25 option texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya (with autohide)
  • Fitmesh
  • 5 fitmesh standard avatar sizes (alphas included)

The Sparkly Stuff….

…..consists of group gifts from Cae. The group is free to join, and there are other gifts to pick up including the companion necklace for this bracelet and earrings.

And finally….

…….Kitty nails!  Zsa, like the person behind the monitor, is animal obsessed (you should see her Jian folder), with a particular love of cats, bats, elephants and goats – but cats always come first.  One of many free group gifts available from Alme is a kitten manicure! The group costs 50L to join but there are frequent gifts and a wall of previous gifts to pick up.  The Alme system uses an easy hud allowing you to apply to all these systems with a click.  To pick your gifts up just put your Alme tag on, and pay the vendor 1L, which will immediately be refunded).

    • Alme
    • Belleza
    • Slink
    • Maitreya
    • Omega
    • Vista
    • Tuty’s

As you can’t see the nails very well, here is a vendor pic:

Alme Love Kittens Nails, lilac

Must dash, I need to search for another job for Zsa, I don’t think this one will last very long.  She switched the fridge off by mistake and all the ice cream melted.  Whoops.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth Thelma
Nails – Alme Love Kittens (group gift / pay 1L, immediately refunded / 50L to join) 
Dress – Bowtique Valerie
Bracelet & Earrings – Cae Northstar stud earrings and bracelet (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Backdrop – Exposeur The Sugar Bowl
Pose – Ex-Posed Cassie

Angels & Airwaves

Angels & Airwaves
Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)
