Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Ultra Violet Imp

Ultra Violet
Hi There Fab Free’rs! I found some wickedly cute group gifts to share with you today. I had such fun dressing up, I hope you enjoy them too. Two of the group gifts I picked up are from a shop called Glutz. The third gift is from Slack Girl. Keep reading for all the info.

The Horns – First I want to tell you that there are tons of free group gifts out at Glutz. Some of them are for a furry body/head that I unfortunately know nothing about, but you might want to check that out! Also, the Glutz group is free to join. I picked up several of the group gifts myself. Among them are these cute ribbon wrapped horns. They include a color change hud that lets you pick from a few preset colors for the horns and the ribbon. They can also be easily resized to best suit your needs.

The Choker – Also at Glutz this cute necklace/choker is part of a gift set called Sovereign Scarlet gifts. The set is free to all Glutz group members, and as I mentioned above the Glutz group is free to join. It includes the necklace and a matching barrette which is not shown in the photo. I really like the little crystal details on this jewelry piece. There are no scripts in this item either, making it a low-lag accessory, and you can easily resize it using the edit menu.

The Manicure – Finally, I picked up one of many many group gifts out at Slack Girl. In fact, Slack Girl has an entire room of recent and past group gifts available. The Slack Girl group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. The gift I picked up is this pretty set of bento nails. They are an elongated coffin shape with several nude french tip color choices, and a black with white tips (shown), and a red color with white tips. I included a copy of the vendor ad below so you can get a better look at these beautiful nails. The set also comes with nails to fit each of the following hands: Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Eve, Belleza, Tonic, Tuty, and Altamura.

Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

BoHo Girl

BoHo Girl

Are you BoHo?  Or would that be “Do you BoHo?” BoHo-ness? BoHo-y?  I don’t know… anyway…  If you like BoHo… then you need to get over to the BoHo Culture Fair quick as you can! Most Designers have set out 1L or completely free gifts, there are Gachas and every Designer has a Fair exclusive item! Several designers have provided free group gifts (Including one for the GUYS) for the fair as well. One of my favorites, Monomania, has set out a lovely FabFree Group Gift for us, Love showed us here. Just wear your FabFree Group tag and grab it!

BoHo-Mania

Monomania has also set out a 1L gift at their booth for everyone. You can grab this sweet little ‘Zen Top’ for just 1 little Linden. The fit is erfect and I love the soft floral fabric. It’s funky but not too “Hippie” to wear just about anywhere.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XS_XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Lady in the Moon

I also found my lovely new necklace at the Fair from Petite Mort. This is ‘MoonMaiden’ and it’s the 1L gift set out for us. The necklace is completely adjustable so you can get your fit.

Top it off

Gypsy Chic has set out the perfect flower child gift for us too. My crown of roses is the ‘Flower Crown’ and it’s a 1L gift too. The crown comes with a HUD for lots of color choices to suit your mood.

Down in The Shire

The Elven Way

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Rip and I are popping in with a quick post featuring a fantastic outfit, which is perfect for role play.  The entire ensemble, from cape to boots, is all included in the prize for The Red Hunt from Feyline Fashions, and it only cost 10L.  The Red Hunt is in support of Team Diabetes of SL, an official and authorized team of the American Diabetes Association.  All proceeds from the hunt go directly to Team Diabetes of SL.  I have several family members in RL who suffer from diabetes, so I am happy to participate in this hunt and pay just 10L each for some fantastic prizes.

The Elven Way

Once I began wearing the different components of the Vashti Anduine outfit, I just knew I was going to wear some fantasy elf ears and head on over to The Shire for an extended visit.  The prize package includes everything I’m wearing in my picture from the necklace and cape right down to the high heel boots.  I love the pairing of deep red and dark blue along with the golden accents.   A collared cape and belly jewel are also tucked inside the box, but I opted not to wear them.  The generous designer included classic avatar versions as well as an Omega Applier, so there is something for everyone in this prize, and you get it all for just 10 Linden dollars.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Applier
  • Top
  • Sleeves
  • Body Veils
  • Cape and Collared Cape version
  • Collar
  • Belt
  • Chest Medallion
  • Necklace
  • Pants
  • Skirt
  • Boots (includes alpha layer and boot base)

Back Down the Hunt Trail We Go

The pupster and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can come across on the trail of The Red Hunt.  We’ll be searching for the red and gray diabetes awareness ribbon.  The hunt, which features red items, runs through right through Diabetes Awareness Month, so you have until November 30th to scoop up some fabulous goodies and support a great cause.  Until next time, happy hunting!

I’m Still Clinging to Halloween

I Wasn't Ready
Oh My Goodness, Fab Free’rs, I’m sooo not ready for October to be over! Not only do I love Halloween and want it to last longer, I’m just not prepared to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ahhh! Still, I’m sure I’ll get into the spirit of both up-coming holidays soon enough. For now, here’s one more witchy moment.

If you’ve been reading the Fab Free blog for long, you know I adore tattoos. This chest and sleeve tattoo is a free gift by Cheeky Ink. There is also a free tattoo for the guys at the Cheeky Ink shop. No group is needed for either tattoo. The tattoos come in 3 options, a 50% transparency, 75% transparency, and 100% full transparency. This tattoo is an Omega applier tattoo.

I could not resist this shimmering pumpkin from Sunora. It’s a cute little Jack o’Lantern with a simple hold animation. I also love the particle sparkles it emits. It looks spooky and magical! You can do away with the particle effect by clicking the jack o’lantern. This little pumpkin is just 50 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the detials, enjoy!

Not all familiars are cats!

FabFree: Not all familiars are cats!

Hello there Fabulouses and Happy Halloween! It would seem that in RL my familiar is a little black dog, but in SL it appears to be this cool Raven.  I hope it has more insight than my dog.

Whatcha wearing Love?

I am in love with the Margarita gacha set that is at the Nerido store, and thought that since it is under our 75L limit to play, I would share the news here!  I am sure it was probably at an event a while back but somehow I missed it, and found it at the mainstore recently.  You know what that means?  No problem TPing in, and no lag ;D.

As you can see from the vendor ad below the pieces come in six different colours and some of the dresses are even common!  The dresses are super sexy with the super high peek on the left side and the lacy trim, but my absolute favourite piece of this set is the gloves with the ribbon and gem.

The Next Supreme

FabFree: The Next Supreme
Hello there Fabulouses!  Once I had my look all together for today, it screamed “American Horror Story Coven” to me!  Did you watch that season?  It’s by far my favourite AHS season to date and I wish they’d do another one similar to that one!

Where to find this stuff…

The gold trimmed black dress is called Clair and can be found as the #1 RARE item of the Safira offering at Epiphany.  The Skel Hands Necklace is the 25 play reward, and the Skel Hand Rose is the Epiphany Exclusive.  The machine is 75L per play and you can find more information about how this event works on The Epiphany blog.Safira ❥ Clair

Ok….  This is 25L over our limit… but…

I know our limit for features here on FabFree is 75L, but I also think it is worth a mention about the Wasabi Willow hair that I am wearing because it’s such a great offer!  Last Friday it was available as the Fifty Linden Friday offer in an essential pack, but now until Halloween you can purchase the colour packs for 100L each.  Yes, it comes with the hat!
