Someplace Warm and Bright

Someplace warm and brightThis post is dedicated to that moment in the sun. You know the one, when you just stop what you’re doing and pause to enjoy the warmth and glow of the sun on your face. A simple pleasure before you continue on with your day. Yes, that’s the one.

Outfitted

Of course, that moment is even better if you’re someplace tropical. I prepped for my tropical excursion with a trip to Hot Stuff. Do you know this store? I didn’t. It’s got nice stuff though! There are also some free group gifts to grab, and right now group members can even get a free 900L store credit. You will need to join the group, which is temporarily free to join. Walk into the next room after the group gifts and there’s a big ol’ sign with two free store credits for 450L each, one for pink vendors and one for yellow vendors. It’s really not that complicated but there are instructions right there if you need them.

The Goods

What’s that, you want to know what I used my free credit towards? Well I’m glad you asked. I got this bathing suit, of course! It’s the perfect combination of cute and sexy without letting it all hang out. It has a HUD to make different sections solid or patterned, and sizes for:

  • Erika
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

I also bought a BOM layer of tan lines which I looooooove. It’s nice and natural but you can see some tan lines peeking out from under my suit if you look closely. There are three shades included to work with different skin tones.

I don’t know how long the group will be free to join, but the credit is good till May 28th.

I Can Hear Them Whisper

I can hear them whisper

I can’t believe that Blueberry has been around for 10 years! That’s an eternity in SL time. There are various happenings at the store in celebration and you definitely don’t want to miss them, so allow me to enumerate. 

New Gift

There’s a new group gift at the Blueberry main store and oh my is it pretty. It’s called Decade and included is a dress version and a shirt version. I’m wearing the dress here. There’s also a very extensive HUD for all of your customization needs – the group notice says it’s 37 colors and 18 patterns! Not to mention options for things like button and panty color. Oh! I wanted to mention the panties too. Yes, I just exclaimed over free panties. They are a separate piece and will certainly be useful under other outfits as well. Bonus gift!

Sizes:

  • Ebody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Store Credit

There is a free 500L store credit that you will find in the Blueberry group notices. When you attach it and click to apply the funds to your store credit balance, there’s a popup that the credit will expire in 3 weeks. it certainly won’t last that long though! Because…

Sale!

There’s also a sale going on and the entire store at Blueberry is 50% off. So if you use your credit now you can get twice as much stuff. Math! I’ve found that I’m a sucker for shoes that lace up the leg and I grabbed these Solstice sandals (which you can only see the very top of) in a fatpack – we’re talking flat/high feet, height options for the laces from ankle to knee and clear up to thigh, and lots of colors. A whole fatpack at half price was only 225L but free with my giftcard, so I was able to grab a couple of other cute pieces as well!

The sale started on Saturday and will last for 5 days, so I guess until Thursday-ish? The good news is that, if you can’t get there for the sale, the credit is in group notices and Blueberry leaves up their old group gifts so the gift will probably remain available. It’s 20L to join Blueberry‘s group but you’re already in it so no problem there, right? And if not, that’s 20L very well spent. Happy Anniversary Blueberry!

Sparkling

Coming Soon

I’m looking- and feeling- sparkly tonight, FabFree. Let’s look at the glittering skirt and bright free skin I found to complete this look.

A Skirt for the Soul

This stunning skirt is one of the “Soul Skirts” from Shanti, and I’m in love. It looks magical. Shanti VIPs receive a 100L gift card every month, which you could use to pay off a good chunk of the cost of this skirt. Each skirt costs 199L, so you will pay 99L for the skirt after the gift card. See the picture of all the gorgeous soul skirts below you may choose from. The Shanti VIP group costs 99L to join, and you get an exclusive group gift every month on top of the gift card. You also get a 50% discount on new releases as a VIP, and these skirts are currently discounted to 100L each for group members (just wear the group tag).

Sizes Included

  • Classic M
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • The Mesh Project

New release @ Shanti!

Nicole

In my search to find more beautiful and free Lelutka EvoX skins, I found the lovely “Nicole” skin at Boataom. This gift includes a full fatpack of skin tones. Their group is free to join. See a closeup of the skin below on my Lelutka Lake head. I used the free Velour neck fix that I blogged about here to blend in my skin, and the gift includes the ear skins already.

Sizes Included

  • Lelutka EvoX (BOM)

As a side note, there are a number of other free gifts for group members of Boataom, including a free mesh head! I have updated The FabFree Mesh Bodies and Heads Listing to include this head, so you may want to check that out to see the head and other recent updates on the page!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

Nothing's Gonna Stop Us NowOh hey, here’s some good stuff. In this one little post there are two groups with free gifts, both groups are free to join (one only temporarily), free store credit, and a free pose. What more could you need?

Stardust

Stardust is a lovely shop full of tattoos, poses, and makeup. And the group is free to join. And once you’ve joined, you’ll have access to a wall of free group gifts. That’s where I got the pose that I’m using today! The poses are fun and a bit dramatic while still being natural and realistic, plus each also comes in a mirror version and in a pose ball. It’s nice to have options.

Beauty Factory

The Beauty Factory group is free to join but only for a limited time. It’s definitely a group worth getting in and staying in while it’s free though, in my opinion. Here you’ll find nice variety and quality, a room of past group gifts, and new group gifts pretty frequently. Right now there’s a free group gift in the form of a 500L store credit in honor of Mother’s Day!  The credit will be available until May 7th and the group will be free to join for the same amount of time. You do need to use the credit by May 7th, but that shouldn’t be too hard. I picked out this cute sweater and skirt in no time and still had some change to spare.

Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!

Ready to Garden?

Back Garden

Good afternoon Fab friends. I got some new shelving and items for my garden! I am not much of a gardener myself but all the tools are ready for my gardening boy to come over and get to work. 😉

Fun Finds @ KMH

I found a few cute freebies at KMH. One of them is this pretty light blue and purple hairstyle. This is an older gift, but very cute and not shown on the blog yet as far as I’m aware. 😉 The hairstyle also comes in a brown colour if you prefer to be a brunette. I also grabbed the pretty large garden shelf, which you can see in my photo on the left beside me. The shelf is made in “old wood” and it’s only 1L at KMH. It’s high quality and quite the deal! No group is required to get these gifts.

Dolled Up

Tutti Bell currently has 800 Linden’s worth of free store credits available at their mainstore. I love their items, as they help take your avatar to the next level with the amount of details included in their applies and makeup. Just join their free group and click the board to get them. You have until May 4th to get and spend the credits. I purchased a set of eyebrows and a collection of lipsticks with my credit. I also picked up their free group gifts while I was there, and I am wearing the free Moana eyes. They come in many natural shades and they are lovely.

Sizes Included (eyes)

  • Lelutka EvoX
  • Genus
  • BOM

Sizes Included (eyebrows)

  • Lelutka EvoX
