New-to-me!

A Happy Ride_002

I remember once watching a film called “The Red Balloon.” In it, a child’s best friend was a little red balloon that seemed to have human like qualities. It was an artsy film that left quite an impression on me, and when I found this bike floating upward with balloons attached, I knew I had to take a picture…

But onward to the freebies. I have a few special ones for you today as two of them are from a new-to-me store.

New-to-me

I happened upon Sinfully Sweet and discovered that you can join the group at the store fore free and that will give you access to the Midnight Madness board and three lucky letter boards. I snagged my cute top on the Midnight Madness board, and when my letter came up, snagged the shorts.

Plenty of options… the shirt came in a variety of mesh body sizes and included a hud with multiple texture change options. The shorts came in several types of applier layers. Both were completely free with my free to join store group tag.

Here’s the catch… the Midnight Madness board at Sinfully Sweet seems to change out with a new prize daily, so you won’t find this shirt there today (or tomorrow either) but there will be a new prize each day! That’s kind of nice actually! Also, the lucky letter boards rotate as the letters change with different prizes as well. So as the letters change, different prizes will pop up on the three boards also.

New Hair too

I love stopping by KoKoLoReS each month to pick up the monthly group gift. I missed showing off January’s lovely group gift (but it was there I promise you!) but I didn’t want to miss showing you February’s, which just came out! It’s this cute ponytail braid with the loops at the end, and includes a color change hud of natural colors. It’s rigged mesh and pretty as can be. The group costs 250L to join, but remember, you’ll be getting a gift every single month to make up for that one-time fee!

My Baby Doll

ISLBGG
Good morning Fabulouses! Have you been to Insomnia Store lately?  If not, you might want to make a visit because when you join their free to join inworld group, you can obtain the few group gifts they have on their reception desk, or take a little walk behind the wall at the desk and stalk to very fast changing four group exclusive lucky boards.

Stalking The Luckies

This harnessed baby doll dress is available as a free group lucky board prize at Insomnia Store and it includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select between four different colours:  (Red, Black, Hot Pink and Light Pink).    The dress and sleeves have the option to be the same colour or different if you like as well.

A while back on FabFree, I had shown the Flowers Embroidered Dress by Insomnia Store [HERE] which is still available as a free group gift, but there are a few other group gifts on the counter too, including the Full Off Colors Lipstick HUD for Catwa heads.  This applier HUD includes 10 very pretty glossy metallic hues for matching with whatever outfit you happen to have on for the day!

Vitamin Sea

PetiteMortLB10 cents for a Coke?  How old is THAT machine?

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🙂  I took some time to escape the snow, explore the Corlevoli Beach Sim  (Thanks to Kat for the LM I was missing!) in deep need of some vitamin SEA, and I was glad to have just the perfect dress for the trip!

Previously on FabFree

[HERE], I had mentioned that Petite Mort had updated their six group lucky boards with new prizes and I did manage to show off five of them, but there was one more remaining that I haven’t shown yet – so I am wearing that for you today!

Turquoise Essme Dress

The Tursquise Essme Dress is the sixth lucky board prize and as you can see, everything about it is just dishy!  From the cute flowy cut of the dress to the vibrant shade of turquoise and the complimenting colourful embroidery accents – this dress is a perfect wardrobe staple for summer…  or winter getaways!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis
  • TMP

The other five lucky boards…

About the group:

Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Fries With That Shake

LuckyAMD
Hey there Fabulous Readers!

Have you seen the new group lucky board prizes at Apple May Designs?

The Apple May Designs inworld group is 25L and once you activate your tag you can participate in the two lucky boards just inside the doors at AMD.  Recently, the Ribbon & Kalani Outfits were loaded into the boards in a black pinstripe version and a pink pinstripe version.  This set includes the tiny ribbon top and belted pants as well as a texture change HUD that allows you to change the belt colour!

Dat Azz

I love the way the pants are designed, cinching at the waist and not only looking so cute from the front with the bow belt, but offering the most amazing from behind view that draws plenty of attention.  Disclaimer:  If you are one that wants your partner to look longingly into your eyes, you might want to re-think your pants choice, because they will just be wanting fries with that shake the whole time you are in them.

(AMD) Group Gift

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

If you just can’t wait for your lucky letter to come up, you can purchase both of these colour sets for 49L each above the boards :).

Beguiled by Argyle

SnatchminaGood afternoon Fabulous Readers!  Today I am bringing you news about a couple of really fabulous free items that I was really excited to come across.  One item is the super cute long hair by MINA Hair and the other is the adorable argyle sweater dress by Sn@tch.

Taking It From The Top

I’m not quite sure where to start because I am so giddy about both items, so let’s just start at the top with the Luna Hairstyle that is available as a free group gift at MINA Hair.  This playful style includes a hairstylist HUD that allows you to tuck your hair behind your shoulders and also remove the bangs and side hair, making it compatible with whatever you might be wearing with it.  Blonde and Essential colour packs are available in this gift so you’ll have plenty of options for shades.  This group has a 200L join fee, and you can find this group gift at the entrance of the store, but if you venture in just a little further, you’ll find a wall full of previous group gift hairstyles as well!

Sn@tching Up That Argyle Style

There is some pretty exciting news at Sn@tch!  Ivey Dechanel has updated ALL of the lucky boards with new FREE prizes and they are awesome!  One of them is the Wilora Argyle Sweater Dress I’m all bundled up in – AND…  it includes a texture change HUD with a ton of colour options.  It fits like a glove to the mesh bodies listed below and also comes in regular mesh sizes and an alpha for those still on the system body…  so everyone can enjoy it!  These are not group boards, so you can just give it a little slap when your letter comes up!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

The Masked Soirée

The Masked Soirée

I was invited to an exclusive masked soirée at the Manor.  The invite said “dress to impress”, and being someone who takes people at their word, I planned my outfit with aplomb.  There is nothing that will turn heads quite like a shiny bodysuit, and if it’s free, then who am I to complain?  I have to say, heads swiveled so fast in my direction, I wouldn’t be surprised if they all got whiplash!

Head-Turner

I found this hot little number at Belle Époque, where they have several great Lucky Letter boards set up outside.  There are so many fantastic outfits, but this one really fit the bill!  You can pick it up without joining any group for absolutely free, just wait for your letter to come up!  The bodysuit is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

The gorgeous peacock feather mask is also available at Belle Époque and is one of the Fab Free Group Gifts!  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free tag, and click away!  The Fab Free Group is always free to join and new gifts are being added all the time!

Well, I’ve got a full dance card, so I’m off to dance the night away with some handsome suitors….
