Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic_001

TWE12VE is a new event this year that begins on the 12th of each month. To celebrate their first year, creators are giving gifts for just 12L each at their booths. I’m here to show you a few of the fantastic finds I picked up when I went to check out the goings on!

Do you believe?

I believe in magic! And tee shirts! I’ve become an avid fan of JellyRoll clothing since I discovered the cute brand, and JellyRoll is at TWE12VE with a few new releases as well as a 12L gift. Their gift, which you can pick up for just 12L, is a texture change tee called Magic that comes with a hud with four different textures. I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this post so you can see all the textures available. It comes in several sizes to accommodate many mesh body types as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something magical

I stopped by the Adorably Strange Wares booth and picked up their 12L gift and was thrilled with what I found when I unpacked the box. I rezzed it out and discovered that it was floor glitter! You can get a pretty good idea of the look of it in the picture above, but the picture doesn’t really do it justice. The floor glitter shimmers, glitters, and moves just like magic and a swatch of it that covers a fairly good sized area is only 3 prim to set out. The gift is copiable so you can set out as many as you need to decorate your area!

Last touches

I finished off my look with a gift from Indigenous Designs. For just 12L, I picked up their gift box and this Rose Choker was in the box. There were two in the box actually… one in gold and one in silver. I’m wearing the silver in the picture above. The details on this choker are really pretty and it makes a nice final touch to a casual outfit (or perhaps for a more formal date?). Either way, I was charmed by its look!

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/01/2017 – EMU Group

EMU Group Exterior
The Weekend is here Fab Free! Thank goodness. That of course also means it’s time for this week’s designer of the week. This week I’m excited to share with you all about EMU Group. This shop is a bit different than many of the shops we get to discover on the Fab Free blog in that it focuses on scripting, scripted items, furniture, and other builds. Anyone in SL who builds, creates, decorates, or just tinkers would enjoy the EMU Group shop. There’s also an art gallery on the second floor with lots of original artwork. The EMU Group shop is large but easy to navigate. There’s even a room with FREE or very inexpensive items to the right of the main entrance.
EMU Gifts and Info
Once inside the main entrance at EMU Group, you’ll see the online indicator board for the EMU Group team members. There are subscriber group kiosks and group joiners positioned throughout the store. The in world group EMU Group has a one time join fee of 5 lindens. With this group you’ll have group only discounts and access to the group Lucky Chair, and group Midnight Mania boards. Near the chair and boards there’s also a dollarbie gift. In this same room you’ll see new releases on the wall as well. On the same wall is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members. If you’re not in the Fab Free group yet, it’s always FREE to join. Take a moment to explore this cool shop, the EMU Group has something for everyone whether you’re an expert builder or a novice.

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass) / Maitreya Lara / Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
