Have Some FREE Fun in the Sun!

BRM 1

Hello Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve been in major need of some rest and relaxation. It’s been a hectic week! Fortunately there’s a little spot I’ve been meaning to check out in Second Life called BRM Radio that can provide just that. It’s a serene waterside location with awesome music to listen to while you enjoy the surroundings. Not to mention there’s some free swag! Also, I recently came across this lovely skin from a new-to-me shop called E. Vary. I really like this skin quite a bit!
BRM First, I know we focus on free and inexpensive fashion a lot on the Fab Free blog, so I’m happy to let you know about the BRM Radio location. It’s a FREE place to hangout and enjoy some fantastic music as well as the scenery and some activities. There is a 7 Seas Fishing setup at the BRM Radio off one of the docks. Need a place to rez? The land is open to rezing for all group members. *UPDATE 6/26/2016 – Rezing is open for everyone, no group needed! Fancy a little boating? The BRM Radio location is on the open water, and there’s a FREE boat rez-er so you and your friends or perhaps a significant other can enjoy an afternoon on the water. Additionally find this cute mesh ladies BRM logo Henley inside the office at the landing point  for FREE. You’ll need to join the BRM Radio group, however the group is also FREE to join. The shirt is fully mesh and includes a color change hud with several color options. I love this style top for a cute, comfy, casual look, not to mention it’s kind of perfect for boating. There’s also a men’s version available as well, and a BRM Radio lanyard. If you enjoy the music while you’re there, and I’m sure you will, BRM Radio also has a link so you can listen to BRM Radio while at your home land. I hope you enjoy this relaxing little spot, maybe I’ll see you there!

Now, let’s talk about this skin from E. Vary. This lovely skin is the FREE June subscriber group gift from E. Vary. Her name is Lina – Morena, and I think she’s very pretty. This generous group gift includes classic system skins, tattoo lipstick, freckle, and eye-shadow layers, 4 shapes, an Omega body applier with cleavage options, as well as a mesh head hud that includes options for Catwa, Eve, Genesis, Visage, and Omega compatible heads. Also the system skins and the mesh head applier hud allow you to choose to wear the skin bare, with no freckles/beauty marks or makeup, or with them. To get this FREE gift, simply join the subscriber right next to the photo of the Lina – Morena skin in front of the desk, and the gift will be sent to you!

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Daydreaming

Day Dreaming

In real life it’s sweltering where I live today. Thankfully in second life it’s much cooler… and I can daydream a little. I got a notice from Pure Poison that they had a new Gacha Group gift out and was really excited. I always love the FREE spin on the group gacha… part of the fun is the surprise of what you will get. The group is FREE to join, so the pair of shoes won’t cost you a single Linden, and this set of Khyrah heels is just divine. You get one FREE spin per avatar, and that will get you a pair of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. If you want additional shoes, they are only 50L per spin on the non-gift gacha machine.

I landed a beautiful yellow pair and I really love the detailing on these heels by Pure Poison. I included the vendor advertisement at the end of my post so you could see the other colors available as well as get a close-up of the heels.

I wanted to pair my new heels with a pretty dress, and found just what I was looking for at the Cart Wash Sale. I picked up this pretty maxi dress by Lilbit Sass for only 10L. It is breezy and beautiful and the fit is perfect. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza too.

Day Dreaming 2

If you haven’t stopped by Hairology yet, you still have time. It runs until June 30th. I highly recommend you pick up all the cakes there! There are so many pretty FREE gifts! [e] elikatira has out a cake and inside is two gift hairs in exclusive colors. I am showing you “Libby” in the pictures above. You don’t need a group… the hair is completely FREE. Just click the cake and it’s yours!

Loki showed you one of the 10L offerings from the Luminess Cart [here] earlier, but there are several pretty items for us ladies too. I found a pretty pastel pendant that looked lovely with my outfit and picked it up to finish off my soft summery look. It has a little cherub relaxing on the disk… looking like he is daydreaming… which is exactly the mood I was in this afternoon.:)

Summer Weekends Ahead

Happy Friday, FabFree!

Summer Weekends Ahead

Now that the weekend is here, let’s do some shopping! Let’s start with my super cute free new hair style. This is ‘Jayla’ and it’s the new Group Gift for Truth. Jayla comes with a HUD for four cotton candy color choices and a HUD to change the color of the bands in the pig tails! The Group is free to join and don’t forget while you’re there to scope out the huge discount room in back for 50L hairs too!

My super cute new hair needed a super cute new outfit, of course! And I think I found what’s going to be a wardrobe favorite at Vicarious Youth’s Cart at the Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale. This is the Bandeau + Tank – ‘Nautical Stars’ and the ‘Solid Americana’ flip flops from VY’s Cart. I love them! The bandeau and tank are one piece with it’s own alpha and comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL.  The flip flops are fit to SLink, Maitreya and Belleza feet. If that wasn’t enough, they also come in three color combinations – red soles with navy straps, navy soles with red straps and beige soles with navy straps.

I paired up my Cart finds with a marketplace goody, this is ‘Denim Mini’ in red and it’s from Love25. The skirt is very nicely made and again… I think it’ll become a favorite of mine. The skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-XL and has a good alpha layer.  I couldn’t find a store for Love25 in world so if any of y’all know of it, drop me a note. I’d love to see more of this designer’s work!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale goes on until July 6th so you’ve got some time to browse to your hearts content!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

Orlando

My heart is still heavy, Fabulously Free Readers.

Orlando

After the senseless violence and hatred in Orlando, many of us feel so helpless and seek to fill that void with compassion. That’s why I’m joining ranks with the LGBTQ community and with Lapointe & Bastchild to show my support. Lapointe & Bastchild have set out this free for everyone gift in honor of the survivors of the Orlando tragedy.

L&B Unity is a free add-on for the L&B Classic Tee Shirt Group Gift. If you already own the Group Gift Classic tee simply grab the updated version at the front of the store and the add-on will work for you. The group is free to join ( and free to leave, as Bastchild put it) so the Classic Tee and the Unity add-on are both completely free for everyone.  The add-on comes as a HUD with seven LGBTQ positive designs to choose from.

In addition, Lapointe & Bastchild has set up a donation kiosk at the landing point of the sim with 100% of everything collected going directly to the Go-Fund-Me page for the victim’s families and the community of Orlando. Of course, donation is not required or demanded. However, I do require you, my dear reader, no matter what your views or orientation to seek out your loved ones and your friends and tell them how important they are to you right now. The only combat for hate is love.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

My Ruby Slippers 2

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

My Ruby Slippers 3

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Dragon Lord

Greetings FabulouslyFree Friends,

Dragon Lord

Julianna had to twist my arm to get me to try some of these ‘role play’ outfits at first. And, frankly, some of what’s out there on the Grid is… well… less than elegant. However this one from Sparrow By Design is rather suave. This is “DragonLord” and it’s the free prize for the Silk Road Hunt. The coat and the pants are separate items but they share the same alpha layer. Each piece comes as one FitMesh item. I found the FitMesh to be extremely well made and fit very well indeed.

My … unorthodox head gear is from Aii: The Ugly and Beautiful. I protested but Julianna insisted that a dragon Lord needed horns.  At least these are very very impressive. The “Holy Devil” horns come in both gold and silver and are unrigged Mesh for ease of adjustment. You can find them as a free gift for the subscribers group near the front of the store.

Lastly, my prop and pose are from the retirement sale going on now until the end of the month at Exposeur. Sadly, the shop will be closing for good though the Marketplace should remain available. All items are on sale for some very deep discounts.

The Silk Road Hunt and the Exposeur closing sale both end on June 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
