Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here
Hello Fab Free’rs! I’ve packed up all I own, and I’ve got my camera. I’m ready for a long vacation, where are we going? I’d love nothing more than to be able to pack up and go on some long adventure. For now I’ll be satisfied doing my adventuring, and most of my shopping, right here in Second Life. I put together most of this look using current or previous group gifts. As always I’ll let you know all the information about how to get each one, just keep reading!

The Hair – The cute little bob hairstyle Pru is sporting is a still available May group gift at Besom. I checked there today, just to be sure. I love the slightly tousled look of this perfect-for-summer hairstyle. The Besom group is 199 linden to join, and there is more than one group gift currently available.

The Dress – This dress from Prey has the look of a structured well tailored leather dress, and the fringe just adds to the effect. It is the sort of dress you could dress up, but there’s no dressing this one down! It also happens to be the free July group gift at Prey. Love told me about it and I’m super pleased she did. The Prey group is free to join, and they also have a male gift available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis)

The ShoesPure Poison recently put out this beautiful pair of black heels out as a free group gift. These shoes are absolutely gorgeous on. The Pure Poison group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on these beauties.

Sitting in an English Garden Waiting for the Sun

Sitting in an English Garden Waiting for the Sun

Happy Weekend Fab Free!  I’m sitting here in a beautiful garden on the Yorkshire sim.  I guess I’m kinda echoing a bit of my very own RL vacation!  I’m enjoying myself thoroughly and spending as much time as possible smelling the flowers.  I’ve got some freebies to sweeten up the deal too!

I’ve Had an Epiphany!

Allison mentioned yesterday in her post that there are some great free gifts over at The Epiphany to celebrate their birthday.  It’s always a bonus to find great gifts after you manage to spend a large amount on the amazing gachas you find there!  I picked up the gifts from Kaithleens – This flirty little green halter-style dress – and from Equal: these gorgeous beaded earrings that I totally love for summer.  No group join required to grab these gifts, just click away happily!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus
  • Ebody

Don’t forget to stop and smell the wildflowers!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/20/2018 – ALB

ALB Exterior
If you’ve never been to ALB (AnaLee Balut) you should go, even if only to see the store. It’s a unique Arabian themed desert oasis. Walking through the store in places is reminiscent of a street bazaar. The main part of the store is several stories, so there’s plenty to explore. At ALB you’ll find mostly ladies clothing, though there is a random mens item here and there. The style at ALB is a little harder to pinpoint! Eclectic is a good word to start with. There is everything from shoes and accessories, to lingerie and ballgowns. You’ll also find fantasy inspired clothing, fashion inspired by history, and even some of what I would call Gorean clothing. As I mentioned, there’s a lot to be had!
ALB Fab Gift
Probably one of the most notable things about the ALB main store is the large camel statue in the center of the main floor. In this same area you’ll quickly be able to spot the ALB gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This gift is free and exclusive to Fabulously Free in SL group members, so don’t forget to wear your group tag! There are two additional group gifts on the same column as the Fab Free gift. Each requires a separate group tag.ALB Gifts & Wearable Demos

As you browse through the vastness at ALB you’ll note that some items have floating text that may say “group gift” or simply “enjoy” among other things. These items are usually group gifts you can purchase for free while wearing your store group tag. The store group is LAMU and it has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Another unique aspect to shopping at ALB are their “wearable demos.” These items often have floating text as well that will say “demo” or something similar. These wearable demos are often free but sometimes cost between 0 and 10 linden. I spotted both group gifts and wearable demos throughout all the floors of the ALB store. The above photos are of a few but I am certain not all of these gift types just to give you an idea of the genuinely wide range of items. Happy shopping Fab Free, and have a wonderful weekend.

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Hmm, is that Stan on the beach over there in the wetsuit? Gosh, he looks pretty hot. I need to get Gavin a wetsuit like that…

OH HEY there, fabulous readers! You caught me ogling the cute guys on the beach today. Shame on me, but what can I say? They look too good not to look, lol! 😎

A New SENSEation

If you haven’t been over to the latest round of the SENSE Event, then you need to go there now! There are quite a few gifts set out, and I know you won’t want to miss them.

Today, I’m wearing two of the gifts, which were set out for members of the TeleportHub in-world group. The Ashley Boho Dress Pink & Mocha is by ALTER and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I love the saying on the top, “Let your faith be bigger than your fear.” It’s been my mantra all this week as I’ve been pushing myself to do a few things that are definitely out of my comfort zone. 🙂

The second gift I’m wearing is the pretty Infinite Love necklace, also by ALTER. If you need to, click the necklace to bring up the blue resizer menu.

It’s Getting Hot Warm Out Here

I also picked up the newest group gift from Hello Dave and was delighted to see how perfectly it matched my outfit. The glittery little dragonflies are adorable!

Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, and Slink hands are included.

Hello Dave - Nail Appliers

Enjoy!

Born to Stand Out

Born to Stand Out

Just another day in paradise – but this time in my fave colours!  You can’t beat the electric blues, purples and pinks in my opinion, especially when you were born to stand out!

It’s Sabotage!

My sleek and colourful tresses and visor come courtesy of Sabotage.   They’ve got a free group gift out right now, and it’s really fantastic – you get several different colours of this visor (I went with purple, because PURPLE!), as well as the gorgeous hair that goes with it!  I of course went with the intense hues, but there are a whole bunch of different colours to choose from in the HUD.  The Sabotage group is free to join, so head over there and pick up this generous gift!

Beach Bunny

Bathing suit-wise, I’m donning another find on the Belle Epoque Summer Hunt.  I love the colours (of course) but also the criss-crossing pink ribbon across the front.  So good right?  If you haven’t taken part in the Belle Epoque Summer Hunt yet – see my previous post about it HERE and check out all the prizes you can find, each costing just 10 Lindens each!  All prizes on this mini hunt are sized for Maitreya bodies.  Good luck!

Anyone want to play volleyball?

See No Evil

See No Evil
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I recently came across this interesting blindfold from This is Wrong. It’s a free group gift that is just too cool looking to not share with you. Also, Letituier is having a Retirement Sale you won’t want to miss out on. I hope you enjoy these fun and interesting finds.

The HairLetituier is having a Retirement Sale. All hair packs are just 55 linden each. Gachas are set at 55 linden per pull as well. Letituier is known for more editorial and creative. They remind me of the styles you see in fashion magazines and on runway models during a high fashion show. I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so don’t wait! Also the Letituier group is free to join and there is a current free group gift.

The BlindfoldThis is Wrong has this unisex blindfold out as a free group gift. This gift has resize scripts and would be great for role play and creative photos. I really like all the detail with the heart-shaped locks. The This is Wrong group is 50 linden to join at this time. Along with this unisex blindfold gift, there are 4 lucky letter boards, 2 with female tattoos, and 2 with male tattoos.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Reveling in the Rustic

Reveling in the Rustic

I’m having a rustic moment here.  Well, as rustic as you can be in a pretty dress, heels and a flower crown, but work with me here!  I’m getting warm evening, sun going down, corn on the cob kinda vibes.  If you really think about it there are flowers in mason jars, and strings of lights hung over picnic tables – and not in the pretentious, fake way!   Well, maybe a little fake since it is Second Life, but you know….I’m going as pixel-authentic as I can!

La Belle Epoque

To channel this earthy, simple summer vibe, Belle Epoque has all you need!  They have a Summer Hunt going on, with loads of pretty things for you to search for and craft the perfect summer look.  Just search around the store (and outside too) to find the little water droplets that contain a prize.  There are 28 gorgeous pieces to find – each costing only 10 Lindens.  I chose items number 20 and 26 – This gorgeous Midi Length Dress, and the fantastic flower crown that you must admit really is a statement piece.   I’ve added the key to the hunt below so you can choose which items you love (or just grab them all…I won’t judge).  All hunt items are sized for Maitreya.

Happy Hunting!

I want you to have it all

I want you to have it all

Have you noticed that I have this habit of blogging events on their last day? I don’t know what that’s about. I guess I just feel like I need one last hurrah with the fabulous gifts before it’s over or something. So today I bring you a couple more Cosmopolitan gifts. But wait, there’s more! I also have a great new gift that just came out last night…

Goodbye Cosmopolitan

The current round of Cosmopolitan ends today, so this is the last chance to pick up all of those awesome freebies. There is a group joiner at the door, and the group is required to get all of the gifts. But of course the group is free to join so that’s no big deal. I’m wearing 2 more of the gifts here:

  • The necklace by adorsy is rigged, which I love, although only for Maitreya. It’s a super cute style that I can see myself wearing a lot.
  • My outfit is the gift from EB. I know that I’m not showing all of the skirt but it’s tight, short, and kinda ombres at the bottom to the same pink as the top. I love how high the waist of the skirt is – it almost looks like a dress from the back but then the front shows a little skin in between. The skirt and top are separate pieces and each comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique.

Hello Chain

My earrings are the newest free group gift from Chain. You’ve really gotta go pick them up, they are even prettier in-world. The detail is just amazing. It also comes with a HUD to change them to 15 different metal colors. Chain’s group is 100L to join and the wall of group gifts is now up to 10, plus this new one. What a bargain.

Rebellion

Rebellion

Poor Gavin. His car broke down, and I’m on my way to pick him up. But at least he was able to find some awesome gifts before his old car took its last gasp.

A Rebel With a Cause

Rebellion recently set out this Rebellion t-shirt as their newest group gift. It comes in loose, normal, and tucked versions, and in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Lots of previous gifts, such as these Aviator Glasses, are still available.

Crunchy

Gavin’s hair is the latest group gift from No.Match. No Crunch is a long, dreadlocks-style hair for men and women.

A HUD containing 36 different hair colors is included, as well as two HUDs with 24 colors (12 each) for the scarf.

There are TONS of previous gifts for both men and women still available at No.Match, making the 50L join fee totally worth it!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Yeah You #SHOOK Me

You #SHOOK Me
Hey there Fab Free’rs, as always I am so glad you’re here! My long week is finally starting to wind down, and I am excited to share with you some awesome group gifts and this pretty Lucky Letter board hairstyle. The group gifts from #SHOOK have me all shook up, pun intended! I’m also pleased as punch with this free Lucky Letter board hairstyle from Little Bones. Thanks to the lovely Grace for the teleport when my letter came up!

The Hair – So either I had forgotten or maybe they are new, I’m not sure, but Little Bones has not 1 but 2 Lucky Letter boards that do not require an sort of group to participate in. Thanks to Grace’s thoughtfulness I was able to pick up the Winona hair pictured in “The Blondie” pack for free.

The Top & Jewelry – I’m over here singing “You #SHOOK me allll night long…” because that song is the first thing that comes to mind when I read the word “shook.” Right now you can get #SHOOK too with their 3 current group gifts. The #SHOOK group is just 50 linden to join, and you can pick up the top, necklace, and choker shown for free while wearing your group tag. The top includes a hud that lets you pick from 3 summery prints, and allows you to custom color or hide the lace edges. The transparent choker is also a free group gift and it comes in 3 variations, one with silver studs (shown), one with gold studs, and one with rose gold studs. The third group gift at #SHOOK is this tiered “Leo” necklace. It comes in 3 versions, one with a moon (shown), one with a star, and one with a heart. The necklace has a color change hud as well with 2 options for the little crystal, and several metal color options.
Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)
