A Fab Free Breakfast Club

Wink
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! There are a few more days left to pick up the many FREE gifts available at the Anniversary round of Designer Showcase, so I chose a few more to share with you. I also couldn’t help but notice all the 80s and 90s movie nostalgia on the blog. I like it! Finally, did not go unnoticed that Carson claimed the role of Fab Free Black Sheep. That made me smile, and chuckle a little. To quote the best of all the John Hughes movies, the truth is “… that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal…” or perhaps in some instances a black sheep.

A Dress for a Princess & a Basket Case…

This mixed floral and animal print dress is the FREE Designer Showcase gift from Kendrasy Creations. No matter if you’re a princess, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, or perhaps even a criminal, this dress is perfect for a night out. The dress comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. I must admit, I do feel like a sassy princess in this dress. As with all the gifts at the Designer Showcase, you’ll need to join the Designer Showcase group to pick up this FREE gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.
Princess

… and the Jewelry to Match 

Yet another FREE gift at the Designer Showcase Anniversary round is this gorgeous jewelry set from Moondance Boutqiue. The necklace in the photo comes with a matching pair of dangle earrings. In addition the set can be resized and recolored with the scripted touch menu. This means the jewelry will match virtually any outfit whether you’re the princess or the basket case, or like me and a little bit of both! Don’t forget to wear that Designer Showcase group tag to get your gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice – Simple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

Heart! Triangulate and Listen

Not Today SLHello Fab Free’rs! I feel like it’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed sharing with you. Like some of the other bloggers I’ve been feeling a little blah recently, and perhaps a little restless. I think it’s this strange weather we have been experiencing out here in the southern United States. I also think I read something about Mercury being in retrograde. While I’m not sure exactly what that entails, I always see it associated with mental, physical, and emotional shenanigans. Even Second Life seems to be misbehaving more than usual. Whatever the reason, I hope things settle down soon for all of us! That said, I fell back on an old saying “look better, feel better” and picked out an outfit full of fun bright colors in effort to counteract all the blahs in both worlds.

TriangulateMaxi Gossamer – Sugar Heart Necklace

 The proverbial icing on the cake that is this wildly colorful outfit is the FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. This heart pendant necklace comes equipped with a detailed touch menu so you can customize the size and color of your necklace. Also included is a longer version of the necklace. Pru tried it on, and the long version hung down to her navel. It made me think of those long necklaces you’d wear with a sweater. The Maxi Gossamer group is FREE to join. To get your own copy of this FREE gift, just head to the Maxi Gossamer main store and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Eclectic Stars – Shimmy – Triangulate

If these pants don’t cheer you up, I’m afraid nothing will. They are a unique design from Eclectic Stars in an exclusive pattern especially for Fab Free group members. That’s right, these colorful pants are the most recent Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars. This generous gift includes specific sizes for Maitreya Lara, all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, and TMP. Additionally there are fitmesh and standard mesh sizes included. To get this FREE gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join, and click the gift vendor at Eclectic Stars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

New Years Zen

ZenWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all well, I’m glad you’re here. I want to share with you one of my hopes for this shiny new year. While there are lots of things I am going to work toward in my 2017, at the top of the list is a little personal zen. I believe that intuition and self reflection are important. I intend to be more accepting of myself, rather than remain often at war. I want to be genuinely happier, and bring happiness to others. That’s not to say that I am unhappy, I consider myself to be very fortunate in many ways. However, I think there’s always room for improvement! If you don’t already have all the happiness you could possibly want in your own lives, I wish that happiness finds you also. Truthfully I think everyone can benefit from a little personal zen. Okay I’ve got all the sentiment out of my system, now for the freebies!

Aurica Store – Bileya Tattoo 

Starting with this gorgeous pink henna style mandala type tattoo. I’m not often into pink, though I find myself appreciating it more lately, I still love this tattoo from Aurica. It’s a FREE gift listed on the Marketplace. Included in this gift from Aurica is an applier only. The applier hud will work for Omega compatible bodies, Maitreya Lara, Slink bodies, and TMP bodies. I think the mandala type design is perfect for the new year. You may or may not know this, but the mandala is said to represent a “…dreamers search for completeness and self-unity.”

Cureless – Moonlight Jewels

Cureless recently sent out a FREE group gift. This bindi type crescent moon is beautiful. The textures have an almost iridescent quality. This gift from Cureless includes a color change hud with a ton of color options. I probably should have counted them, but trust me, there are a lot! The Cureless group is FREE to join. To get the gift, just join the group and check the past notices. Hurry though, notices do not stay available forever. I think I’ll be wearing this little jewel often.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Look to the Future

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/30/2016 – Beloved Jewelry

Beloved JewelryHello There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and we know what that means: Fab Free Designer Friday! This weeks post is dedicated to Beloved Jewelry. I have to tell you, it’s been quite a day of blunders for me today. I actually had an entire post written and photos taken of what I thought was the Beloved Jewelry main store, only to find out that I’d been at their satellite store the whole time.  If Love hadn’t come to help me “find” the Beloved Jewelry Fab Free exclusive gift, I would have been in big trouble. My whole post would have been about the right shop, but wrong location! Needless to say, I have it all sorted out and Love probably got a good laugh!

My mishap aside, the Beloved Jewelry store is really elegantly set up with a grand desk at the entrance. On the desk you’ll find a little black box with a FREE Beloved Jewelry group gift, and a second group only vendor that will allow you to purchase a box full of previous group gifts. Just below these fantastic gifts, you’ll also see 3 group exclusive group gifts for other groups including the Fabulously Free group gift blogged previously by Astrid. Now I am getting a little ahead of myself. I got distracted by all the fabulous gifts. The Beloved Jewelry store has a wide range of gorgeous jewelry that ranges in style from casual to formal. You’ll even find some beautiful shoes to suit your formal wear needs. Most of the jewelry is for the ladies only, however the shop does have an entire section dedicated to wedding jewelry and bridal sets which of course include male sizes. If you’re looking for a gift for someone you care for, or even a gift just for yourself, you’ll want to stop through Beloved Jewelry. As you browse through the store you’ll even find specials and discounted items for shopping events. Just look closely at the signage throughout the store, everything is clearly marked.Dollarbies As you’re browsing and hopefully shopping, you may want to take note of the wall behind the front desk area. The back of that wall is where you’ll find the Beloved Jewelry dollarbie section. As you can see from the above photo there are a lot of beautiful jewelry sets to choose from in a wide range of styles.  These items are all no transfer so they aren’t meant for gifting, but rather would be a lovely and inexpensive way to treat yourself. I sincerely hope you’ll take a moment to check out Beloved Jewelry, and don’t forget to pick up all the awesome gifts while you’re there.

Contemplation

ContemplationWell Hello Fab Free! It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to be online, but I am very happy to be back and I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed any and all winter festivities they celebrated. That said, it’s time you ventured through We Love Role Play if you haven’t already.  The current round of We ❤ RP is particularly special because there is a Christmas tree with FREE gifts piled under it. You will need to join the We ❤ RP group and wear the tag to get the gifts, however the group is FREE to join.

As far as I am concerned you’re never too old to play dress up, or to have a wild imagination. There were a few of the FREE We ❤ RP gifts specifically that called out to me. I just had to wear the armor from Belle Epoque, and the headpiece from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Perhaps the fact that I’ve recently started watching “The 100” again on Netflix had some influence as well. As for the elf ears, I just like how they look, I feel like a determined warrior elf: beautiful and strong.

Wicca’s Wardrobe Gift at We ❤ RP

This sturdy yet elegant looking headpiece is the FREE gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe at We ❤ RP. The textures of the Amara Headpiece are beautiful, and the face chains fit easily over my mesh head without any adjusting. You can size this mesh accessory with the built in resize scripts. Look for this FREE gift under the Christmas Tree at We ❤ RP.

Belle Epoque Gift at We ❤ RP 

The armor Pru is wearing as her warrior elf self is the FREE gift from Belle Epoque at We ❤ RP. This armor is beautifully done and moves well with the Maitreya Lara body. The Callie Armor is fully mesh and meant to be born with the Maitreya Lara body. Also, it comes in a gold version as well as the silver version shown.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/23/2016 – Kamiri

Kamiri DownstairsOnce again it’s Fab Free Designer Friday, and today’s featured designer is Kamiri! This shop is a ladies clothing store, with a mix of mesh and applier clothing. The best way to describe the clothing style at Kamiri would be colorful and fun! You’ll find a lot of cute flirty outfits in bright playful colors. This store is also really great for those who like applier clothing, it’s not often you find stores with so much to offer in the way of appliers. Additionally there are tons of way to score FREE or inexpensive items throughout the Kamiri store. Since there are so many gifts and goodies to be had, I split everything up into first and second floor finds. Pictured above are just the gifts and promotions I was able to find on the first floor.

As you land in the Kamiri shop, you’ll instantly see a long table full of various group gifts. Notice the bottom photo in the collage above. The Fabulously Free  in SL group exclusive gift is there as well. You’ll see it sitting next to the Fab Free sign on the table. Wear your Fab Free group tag and get this FREE gift if you haven’t already. For a preview, check out Katheryn’s post here. Just behind the gift table you’ll see a Midnight Madness board, from what I can tell there’s no target set, and everyone who clicks the board while wearing their Kamiri group tag gets the prize. The Kamiri group is FREE to join. Also downstairs, there is a promo offer of 75 lindens for a specific color version of one of Kamiri’s newest releases. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the most recent Kamiri group gifts. They are downstairs next to the circulation desk. As if that wasn’t enough there are more gifts upstairs!
Kamiri UpstairsHeading up the stairs, you’ll be greeted by 4 lucky letter boards with short wait time between letters! You’ll also notice several areas around the room that have discounted items. Then it’s hard to miss the cute little sitting area next to the stairs. You’ll want to bring a couple of friends, the sitting area is actually 3 camping chairs, each with a different prize. You’ll want to wear your Kamiri group tag for these, which is again FREE to join. Finally, you’ll see yet another long table packed with previous Kamiri group gifts. Gather your girlfriends and head over to Kamiri for lots of shopping and freebies, you won’t be disappointed!
