My back’s against the wall

My back's against the wall

Hi there! I’ve put together some pretty things to show you. I hope you like them!

Most literal title ever

There is a new free group gift at Ana Boutique, and it is a set of 3 poses designed to be used leaning up against a wall. They’re really fantastic. If you want to lean up against some walls too (and why wouldn’t you?), you’ll just need to join the free Ana Boutique group. You’ll find this pose pack and a few other free gifts on the wall above the stairs.

Hair, hair everywhere

I think that the thing that I buy the most of in SL is hair. Like, as soon as we finish up here I’m probably going to hit up the Saturday sale, where I will undoubtedly find some hair that I need and can’t live without. But when they’re on sale or free, it so hard to say no. This specific hair was FREE and it’s really cute. If that’s wrong then I don’t want to be right! I picked it up at Ayashi. There are two groups there, a free group and a paid group. This hair is a gift for the free group. Hopefully my slurl there takes you right where you need to go, but if it doesn’t there is a teleport board straight ahead when you walk into the store. Just choose Gift Room and you’ll see this pack and a few others on the wall. The super cute ‘do that I’m wearing here comes as a fatpack. I love the straight bangs and how the front is pulled back. It’s short and sassy and perfect.

‘Till now I always got by on my own

'Till now I always got by on my own

I don’t know if this is something that I should admit as a FabFree blogger, but I usually avoid hunts. I have nothing against them – you can get some really fabulous stuff through hunts and I’m sure that they’re fun for some people. But see, the thing is…I am really, really, really horrible at hunting. Really. So bad. I’m impatient and whiny and you won’t like me when I do hunts. So as a general rule, I don’t hunt. But there are always exceptions and so here we are, with me showing you a hunt prize.

The Day I Hunted

I saw this super cute romper on the FabFree group photo pool on Flickr and knew that it needed to be mine. If you haven’t joined our group on Flickr then you really should, people show some really great stuff and you can add your pictures of free stuff too and give me ideas of what to blog! Anyway, how cute is my romper? It is the Dumpster Dive Hunt free prize from Ambient. The texture is really lovely and I love the cute little belt, but my favorite part is the detail along the top edge. Sooooo adorable. There is a hint giver out front and it wasn’t too hard to find. If I can find it, then you can find it! I think every size ever is included, there is:

  • eBody Classic & Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Classic sizes L-XXS

Always Posing

So I don’t always hunt but good luck getting me to stop posing. And when the poses are free? Even better! This cute sit pose is a free gift from K&S at the Dubai event. There are a few other gifts to be found there as well from other stores so be sure to wander around a bit.

The longest day has just begun

The longest day has just begun

Hi there! I went shopping at Cosmopolitan and found presents! And I paired them with a pretty FabFree gift to show off a whole bunch of free! Nothing wrong with that. And then I decided to hang out by some stairs. That’s totally logical, right? And of course I threw in a nonsensical title and a bunch of sentence fragments. So pretty much nothing new for me. I’m sure that the run on sentences will be along shortly, don’t you worry!

Everything Cosmopolitan 

After the billions of free gifts at the last round of Cosmopolitan, I wasn’t expecting anything when I heading over to do some light window shopping and demoing. But I was pleasantly surprised! There is an easel on either side of the door and each displays a free group gift. You’ll need to join the free group (there’s a group joiner right under each gift) to get them. On one side is this lovely free dress from Miimikri. I love the lace detail on the top and the pretty ruffles. It comes in this pretty soft color and in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The gift on the other side is a pack of free poses from Nina Rosario! I love me some poses and this pack of five of them is really nice.

Shiny Things

Every time I peruse the FabFree group gift listing I’m amazed by all of the awesome things on it. Today I picked up this pretty free jewelry set from Beloved Jewelry. It includes the necklace as well as earrings. You can only see a little bit of one of the earrings peaking out of my hair, but it’s literally the bottom of the necklace (the biggest circle and the tassel) in earring form. Head over to the store and you’ll see what I’m badly describing. Just active your Fabulously Free in SL group tag (or join for free if you’re not already in the group) and give the vendor a click.

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

My picture today is chock-full of freebies, it’s very exciting. Don’t believe me? Just watch.

The Dress

I think this is just the sweetest dress. It comes with a HUD so you can choose from 4 different colors. I got it at Synford Style. When you land, you will be invited to join a group – that is not the one that you need to be in to get the free gifts. Instead you’ll need to join the Synford Style VIP group, which is also free. Then you’ll have access to the free group gifts, including this dress. It comes sized for the following bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

And The Necklace

I’ve been meaning to join the Nanika group and finally did. The join fee is only 50L and there are 3 really great necklaces set out as free group gifts. I’m a sucker for this choker style tied in a bow. It includes a HUD for 4 color options.

And Even The Pose

This pose is part of a pack of 5 that are a free gift for the #Faded group. The group is free to join. They’re all really natural, pretty poses – my favorite kind.

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Watch the night go up in smoke

Watch the night go up in smoke

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! Forgive me for using a title from a British band, surely that’s un-patriotic on a day like today. haha But I absolutely love Def Leppard and I went to their show last night so I couldn’t help myself. Anyway. I already went on about how much I love the 4th of July in my last post on the subject so I’ll spare you today. I took a trip to the boardwalk last time and now I’m at the place where all of the independence Days of my youth were spent – the lake. And obviously I’ve got freebies to show you!

Bikini

My bikini is a free group gift by Legendaire. It is not one of the newer group gifts, it’s on the wall in the back with aaaaall of the other older (but still fabulous!) gifts. Hopefully my slurl will lead the way to where you need to go. The Legendaire VIP group is 49L to join and there are lots and lots of nice gifts, you’ll literally be unpacking for days! And by literally, I mean figuratively. The bikini is one piece and also comes with a really cute little robe (blue with white stars). Both are sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Houglass and Physique
  • 5 Standard sizes XL-XS

Sparkler

I love this sparkler from peaches! I’m going the walk around all day holding it, just see if I don’t! There are options to change the color, turn it on and off, or set the duration. Oh and it has some poses too that let you wave it around which I’m not using. It is a free group gift and the .peaches. group is free to join.

Pose

This great pose is a free group gift from K&S and the group is free to join. My animations folder is out of control but I can’t help it, I love poses soooo much. If you feel the same way that I do then you can run on over and add this to your collection!

 

Alright, I guess that’s enough from me. I’m going to run off to blow something up and kiss a bald eagle. ‘Merica! Happy 4th!

I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted

I’m back to the beach today with cute things to show you!

Botanical Skirt

This skirt is one of the free group gifts at AGATA mode. The group is free to join and there are some other gifts available as well, including nice stuff for the guys. I love the tropical pattern and how it sits low on my hips so that my bikini peaks out. Super cute! The sizes included are:

  • standard
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Beach Ball

My pose is from [west end] and it comes with the ball to hold. It is a FabFree free group gift and of course FabFree is free to join. I said “free” a lot of times in that last sentence. Nothing wrong with that!

Mother of Dragons

Mother of Dragons

I’m having Game of Thrones withdrawals. Can you tell, lol?

Seriously though, when I put on this dress with the hair, I got such a strong Daenerys Targaryen vibe that I couldn’t help myself. And then, when I found the pose on the Marketplace for just 50L, well, it all just came together.

So I hope you’ll enjoy my fun little GoT roleplay picture. 🙂

What’s the Secret?

I paid a visit to the Redeux event over the weekend and picked up this gorgeous dress by Junbug. The secret is that it’s FREE. That’s right, Adele’s Secret is a free gift for members of the Redeux in-world group.

The dress comes in 11 beautiful colors. Sizes are standard mesh only, XXS-L with an alpha layer.

Just for fun, I added the Medieval Tiara by LORIEN which I also picked up as a free gift at Redeux. It comes in only one size, but if you need to change it, you can always do an edit > stretch.

Don’t Wait. Go Now!

I believe I read somewhere that there are 57 gifts available at Redeux. And since the event is only open until June 21st, you’d better head over there SOON. It’s going to take you some time to collect all those gifts! 😀

Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06-15-2018 – Casanova Store

Casanova Store Exterior
Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! This week’s Designer Friday post is about Casanova Store. Mark the day, this one isn’t a fashion clothing store! Casanova Store is a furniture store with a little bit of everything from indoor and outdoor furniture to stripper poles! I would consider the style of the furniture to be mostly modern. Most of the furniture at Casanova Store does appear to include adult animations or poses. The shop is not necessarily adult themed, but I wanted everyone to be aware. So if you want adult furniture you know Casanova Store is a place to find it!
Casanova Gifts

There are a few opportunities for some cool freebies at Casanova Store. There also appears to be a store sale going on at the moment, that makes two fabulous reasons to stop by Casanova Store.  First, I want to tell you the Casanova Store group is free to join, no reason to hesitate! Right now there is a Casanova group Midnight Mania board up that has a very modern looking house as the prize. You’ll see the MM board at the back of the store. Right next to the MM board is a small desk that has the Casanova Store group gift, and the exclusive Fab Free group gift bedroom set. You need to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag to get this free pink and black bedroom set. There are a few other group gifts to be had as well, so don’t miss those. So if you need a little something furniture wise for your home, definitely stop by Casanova Store and don’t forget your freebies!
