Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Light it Up

ff041019_003

So my inventory may be overflowing with dresses, but I can never pass up yet another.  Do you ever wander into your inventory (I mean metaphorically, of course) and think “I need to clear this place out, it’s happening today!” and you putter about looking determined and you try clothes on and you think you’re going to purge and then…it just doesn’t happen?  I can tell you that I have about a bajillion dresses (this number is completely factual) and I can’t get rid of a single one.  So instead, I’ve added yet another to my collection, and it’s FREE!

May The Fourth Be With You

So it’s not quite May yet, and International Star Wars day is nowhere in sight, but that matters not because I’ve got a super awesome dress that I picked up over at Riot for free which is a gift for May the Fourth!  I love the iridescent dark feel to the dress, I’m getting all the Darth Vader vibes, but if you’re not into Star Wars, then you can just say you jumped into a very chic oil slick.  To get your own just join the Riot group for free!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Lippy

To go with my dress, I chanced upon a limited time offer from Zibska!  If you head over to their landing point you will see that they have a free lipstick gift out!  Word on the street is though, that it’s only going to be out until April 11th (aka tomorrow), so you’d better head over there and buy this gift for 0L!  No group join required!  There are several different shades of pinks and purples and it comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, LAQ, Omega and System Layers!

Now will someone get this walking carpet out of my way? (Um…nothing, I said nothing.)

Beachin’

Beachin'

I’ve got my feet in water, and a milkshake in my hand, the sun is shining and all is well with the world today.  You can really get used to this kind of life of leisure, you know.  But wait, before you get all hunkered down in your beach mode, I’ve got to send you kind of all over the place to put this look together!  Hold on to your butts!

So Envious

I so love when you can get a complete outfit for just a little investment!  There’s a new group gift over at Envious, and it’s so cute I could almost (almost) toss this milkshake up in disgust (but I ain’t crazy)!  I joined their group for 250L and got the bra, top, skirt, and bracelet I’m showing you, but there are also a watch and boots in the box as well!  It’s just enough bubblegum and crazy to keep me happy, if you know what I mean!  There are a bunch of other gifts available there too, so hop to it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Go Fetch

There’s also a new group gift at Fetch, and these awesome semi-retro inspired sunnies are them!  They come with an HUD that has loads of colour options in it, and they’re just really cool to be frank.  I got them by joining the Fetch group for 50L!  There are also a plethora of other gifts to pick up there while you’re at it!

I Adore You

#Adored, purveyor of quality hand-drawn makeup also have a new group gift out, and I’m kind of excited about it because I really love their makeup.  The Xtra Jucci Lips come with six different colours to keep you happy, three different pinks and three different purples!  I am vaguely obsessed.  This lipstick comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa and Genus heads.  To find yours, join the group for FREE and then peek in group notices to grab them.  Don’t wander around the store like I did – just head straight to notices and you’ll find them there!  Doh!

Phew.  NOW you can go be beachy.  Just spare a thought for your girl Aline who got you there.

Enjoy the Silence

Enjoy the Silence

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can’t you understand?

What can I say today y’all, I’ve got me a case of writer’s block, so I’m listening to Depeche Mode and hoping for the best.  I guess that’s all you can do some days!

Back to Ostara!

Pru mentioned the other day that there’s a 5L going on at the Ostara’s Altar event, and I managed to find a really nice sweatshirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) by one of my fave designers, Secret Oktober.  Just find the little egg at their display, pay 5L and this beaut is all yours!  Can’t say no to that!

Giving Some Lip

Yesterday I mentioned that there are a giant mass of awesome FREE group gifts over at CandyLand that you can pick up by joining the Evil Bunny group for free.  I’m showing you the offering by GO, which is this classic red lipstick (it’s a little bit like a light red gloss) that comes with appliers for Catwa and Omega.  Cool!

Well perhaps my verbose nature will come back to me tomorrow!

She’s Sweet Like Candy

She's Sweet Like Candy

There are days for fancy staid clothing, where you look professional and important.  This is clearly not one of those days.  It’s a Monday, so I say put aside your normal garb and don something slightly mad and provocative.  If you look like a sugar-coated bonbon, there’s clearly no room for the Monday blues!

Candy Land!

Evil Bunny have got a new event going down right now called CandyLand!  Every vendor has a super cute little gift out that you can get for free by joining the Evil Bunny group, which is of course, free to join!  Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • FREE Outfit by TRS Designs sized for Altamura, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, and Venus
  • FREE Hair by Firelight
  • FREE Eyeshadow by Keka with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa and Omega

There’s loads more to discover over at CandyLand so hop to it!

Safer Up Here

Safer up Here

Have I mentioned before that I have a fear of lakes?  Well if I haven’t, I’m mentioning it now.  There’s something sinister about the black depths of a lake, with its slimy greenery and threat of snapping turtles that just gives me the heebie jeebies.  However, this pretty little body of water I found at Baja Norte may be just the place for me.  Nevertheless, I will pass my time on the dock looking pretty as a picture instead of diving in!

The Circle is Complete

Juli mentioned in her post today that there are gifts over at Designer Circle!  They’re celebrating their anniversary, and have all sorts of lovely things out!  Some of the gifts can be picked up by paying 0L for them, and others you may have to join the free group for, either way all the gifts there are completely FREE!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE Dress by Pacifica sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus – Comes in pink and blue versions
  • FREE Bento Mesh Nails by SlackGirl for Maitreya, Tuty, Belleza, Altamura, Eve, Tonic, Slink and Vista in six different shades
  • FREE Lipstick applier by GO which works with a Catwa applier and an Omega applier

There’s a whole lot of awesome over at Designer Circle, so make sure you jump on over there!

I may just dip a toe in!

Zig A Zig Ahh!

Zig a Zig Ahh!

The year was 1996, and I was standing by a lake with a bunch of friends.  The summer had just begun, and all things grunge were starting to wear a little thin.  It was on that fateful day in 1996, when the sun was shining on the water and the snapping turtles were being especially jerky, that I first came in contact with my destiny – The Spice Girls.  The semi-jarring sounds of “Wannabe” floated at us from a nearby cabin, and from that moment on, it was all about Girl Power, Union Jacks, and saying “Zig Ah Zig Ahhh!” as much as possible.  It was meant to be, what can I say!

Group Gift Power

I won’t try and wax too poetic about my love for the Spice Girls, but they did bring me out of angry teenager land to a bright, fun time full of Chupa Chup lollipops and a blonde wig or two (don’t ask).  When I saw this group gift over at Una, I couldn’t say no.  I have a weakness for the ubiquitous catchphrase of the late 90’s, which still resonates within me to this day.  This top comes in black, blue and pink versions for your viewing pleasure! Anyway, to get your own hop over to Una, join the group for 50 Lindens, and this gift (plus a bunch of others) is all yours!  Score!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink

Shouting is Fun

Another important facet of Spice Girl-dom is to make sure you’re shouting as loud as you can (after all, they used to say “Silence is Golden, But Shouting is Fun).  I found the perfect lipstick for shouting over at Collabor88.  It looks just like a mini disco ball!  If you head over to the Sintiklia booth, you’ll find there’s a wearable demo which comes with appliers for Genus and Catwa heads as well as an Omega applier.  Pretty cool eh?

I’m off to slam it to the left, and shake it to the right!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – E. Vary & Mangula


Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another designer of the week post. This one is a little different in that we kind of get a two for one deal! The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine

Tis the season of love and it’s all heart eyes and sparkle stickers right now, but there are a whole boatload of people out there who want nothing to do with cupid and his arrows.  Perhaps V-day (I shall name the holiday not!) is giving you a hint of the murders right now – if so, have I got the event for you!

A Bit of Gore, a Lot of…

Well, I’ll try and be proper whilst naming this event, but there really is no way to!  If you love Gachas, but hate getting doubles, then the Gore vs. Whore event is for you!  (Phew, I said it!)  It’s a gacha-style event with all prizes located in mainstores around the grid.  You play the machine, and you won’t get a single repeat!  I played the machines over at Sweet Evil and got lots of goodies – my boots, skirt, drink, collar, and lipstick to be exact (though there are a bunch of other prizes to be won too), and then made my way over to Sn@tch to play a bit as well and I got this gory little top that goes with the look perfectly. Each pull is just 25 Lindens!  If you’re in the mood for non-repeat gachas, you can read all about Gore vs. Whore right HERE, as well as check out all the prizes available!  Just a heads up that this is indeed an adult-themed event!  Gore vs. Whore runs until February 23rd!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (Top Only)

Just behave and don’t get too stabby, ok?

Please Take Your Seats

Please Take Your Seats

Cause the lady is a vamp, she’s a vixen not a tramp
She’s a da da da da da da
Come on fellas, place your bets, ’cause you ain’t seen nothing yet
She’s the top of the top, she’s the best, yes!

Why yes, yes I am quoting Spice Girls at you.  Fight me!  Ha!  All kidding aside, I’m getting some very vampy and classy vibes in my new outfit!  You can grab this look too, just read on my sweets!

Tackle the Fishing

I hadn’t made my way over to the trusty fishing pond over at Sn@tch for a bit, but I’m really glad I did, because there’s a new fishing outfit available!  In order to grab all sorts of goodies, including my hair, necklace, bustier, skirt, and lipstick (and there’s so much more in there too, including goodies for system bodies), all you need to do is dust off your 7 Seas Fishing pole and head on over.  Don’t have one yet?  Easy peasy, just buy one by the pond at Sn@tch for 100L, and you can fish for all future outfits too!  You don’t need any bait to grab all this goodness, just a little bit of patience and time!  The bustier comes with an omega applier, as well as system layers, and the lipstick comes in both varieties as well!  You can class up any joint with this great look, so head on over to Sn@tch as quick as!
