Siren of the Sea

Siren of the SeaKelpies

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s the end of the week already?! I know I’m ready for the weekend. I’ve talked before about being drawn to the sea, about having a great love for the water. When I saw this kelpie jewelry set group gift at Vengeful Threads, I might have squealed with delight! Half fish half horse, these mythological creatures are a favorite of mine. What better excuse to fashion my pixel self into a benevolent siren of the sea. The Vengeful Threads group gift is FREE to all group members and the group is FREE to join at this time. The gift includes the gauged kelpie earrings and matching septum piercing.

Tresses Worthy of a Siren

Thanks to Astrid having posted about the Anniversary round of TWE12VE, I decided to check it out for myself. You can take a look at her post featuring a few gifts from the TWE12VE event here. Needless to say I am not at all disappointed in the gifts I picked up. Keeping with the number 12 theme, each vendor has a single gift set out for just 12 lindens. These long pastel locks are a TWE12VE event gift from Firelight Hair. This luscious long hair style from Firelight Hair comes in rigged and unrigged versions, as well as a fit for the bustier ladies. Additionally there is a single color hud with pastel color options.

Opalescent Claws

There is something mythological about the opalescent shimmer of the nail applier gift at TWE12VE by LIVIA. It is really beautiful in person. I can honestly say that even with my usual preference of dark polish, this is my new favorite manicure. The set from LIVIA will work for both fingernails and toenails. The all-in-one hud allows you to pick between 3 variations of this beautiful polish, or use all 3 of them at once. Like all the gifts at the TWE12VE event, this one is just 12 linden.

Appliers Included (all in 1 hud): Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!

Corn-Dog Hustler

Corndog
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t mind telling you I had a wonderfully lazy weekend so far. I hope yours has been just as awesome. Speaking of awesome, I am excited to share the several gifts I used to create this look. I’d struggle to tell you what my exact personal style is, I’m a little bit pin up, a little bit goth, and a little bit grunge. Ha! This look definitely matches my eclectic tastes, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Corn Dog

There’s something wonderful about food in Second Life. You can enjoy anything and everything without any negative affects. Fair food like this corn dog from Label Motion has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s terrible for you, but oh so good! Now you can enjoy a corn dog and have zero guilt. This fun prop is a FREE subscriber gift from Label Motion. I did have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get the gift, but the minimal effort was well worth it. In the gift you’ll get a mustard version (one whole, one half eaten), and a ketchup version (also whole or half eaten).  I think it makes for a super cute photo prop.

The Hustler

Pink Hustler has several group gifts out right now, the most recent of which is this super adorable bandanna hairstyle. No pin-up girl wardrobe would be complete without it. Not to mention it’s one of those styles that can dress up or be very casual. The gift includes the hairstyle and two color change huds. The huds also include several floral textures for the bandanna.

While picking up the group gift hairstyle at Pink Hustler, I also snagged a copy of the bento nails group gift that is still available. These extra long claws are seriously cute. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick colors for every other nail, or you can choose to color them all the same. There are quite a few polka dotted color options in bright summery colors. There’s also a cute little bow on the left ring finger that has separate color options. These bento nails by Pink Hustler come in a Maitreya fit only. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. As I mentioned before, there are several past gifts still available including the two shown here today!

A Little Side Note: Pru is also wearing a few past group gifts that had been previously blogged but are still available! The top is a FREE group gift at Vinyl (group is FREE to join) which was originally blogged by Love here. The eye makeup is also a FREE (group is 100L to join) group gift from Slack Girl previously blogged by me here.  

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers! :/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. 🙂

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go AwayRain Rain Go Away…

This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.

Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.

There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.

The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.

Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Come Again Another Day…Come Again Another Day

During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

WOH3 Goes to the Beach

Beach DayHello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
WOH
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty

Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.

Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.

Sizes Included: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day, and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! XD

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for fitmesh (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! 😀

Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included

  • Vista Bento Hands
  • Maitreya Lara Bento Hands
  • Tuty Bento Hands

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.
