Cupcakes are Dope

Cupcakes Are Dope
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I can almost feel the summer coming to an end, there are still a few good beach days left though. Personally I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than listening to the waves roll in and indulging in something sweet. For my beach moment I picked up this mermaid cupcake at Boutique 187, and the swimwear at Beautiful Hustler. Both items are current group gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Cupcake – The clearly mermaid inspired cupcake Pru is holding is a recent group gift at Boutique 187.  It is super adorable all by its self, however, it also has a hold pose. This way you can carry it around and show off this delicious looking cupcake. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden.

The Swimsuit – If I were to only be able to wear one type of swimsuit for the rest of my life, the tankini would be my personal choice. It’s equal parts cute and comfortable. This tankini from Beautiful Hustler is their free August group gift. I love the bright tie dye colors for summer. It also reads “Dope” across the front of the tankini top for some extra sass. Also, the top is tied in the back, which gives it some extra detail. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Hangin Around

Hangin Around

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  As you can see, Ripley and I decided to keep spending the weekend at the beach.  It’s a good thing I had picked up the latest free gift for members of the FaShIoNable Group over at ALB Dream Fashion.  The best part is since the group is free to join, I added a sweet summery outfit to my wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar!  After donning the bikini bottom and pretty cover up, I was all set for a day of strolling along the shore.

Ready for Fun in the Sun

With its tropical print scattered over a teal blue background, this outfit made me think immediately of palm trees and lazy days relaxing in the shade with a good book and a fruity Bahama Mama in hand.  The strapless cover up is knotted in the front and opens as it flows down to allow the cool ocean breeze to caress your skin.  A coordinating bikini bottom completes the look.  I like how the hemline is shorter in the front but drapes down to knee height in the back.   I enjoyed lounging around in this casual outfit so much that it’s making it hard to face Monday morning and the return to work!  Ripley is not helping as he is encouraging me to play hookey and spend “just one more day” at the beach…  I’ll simply have to explain how my salary pays for all those Ripley snacks Stan keeps bribing him with, and the pupster will be shoving me out the door in the morning.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Werewolf

Until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/04/2018 – Baci

Baci Exterior
Sweet merciful everything it’s the weekend! What a week! I’m happy you’re here Fab Free’rs, and clearly happy for the weekend. This week I get to share with you Baci. This sweet shop reminds me of those swanky boudoir boutique style shops. It is a ladies clothing store where you’ll find lots of feminine sexy dresses and lacy underthings. Baci is a small enough shop that it’s quite easy to navigate, but large enough that there’s plenty to look at. There are also quite a few dollarbies and gifts to be had, which of course we love!

Just as you enter Baci, you’ll see a couple of dollarbies to the right, along with two group gifts. These gifts, such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift, require a specific group tag. The dollarbies are just 1 linden each, no group needed. I even picked up the dollarbie Omega applier tan lines myself!  Also, you may recall the cute little Fab Free group gift dress by Baci from Nevi’s post “Dreaming of Yesterday.” To the left, there’s another dollarbie (it appears to be a rez day gift) that is also available to everyone.

If you follow the walkway to the right and go all the way, you’ll find the wall of Baci store group gifts. There are several dresses, and some pretty lingerie gifts. The Baci store group is just 1 linden to join at this time. You can get a quick glance at these gifts in the lower right photo above. Finally, there are several Baci group-only Lucky Letter boards directly across from the Baci store group gifts. My apologies, I didn’t get a photo of the Lucky Letter boards. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Rainbow Goth

Fantasy Goth
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been one of those days IRL and I’m thankful that I have my SL to escape to! I’m also super glad you’re here and I get to share some cool Goth Garage Sale Hunt finds with you. This hunt definitely caters to the gothic, wicked, and witchy among us (as the name would suggest). Pru is living out one of my goth/rockabilly fashion fantasies with this look. The GGS Hunt is a 5 linden hunt, meaning each prize is 5 linden. This hunt is taking place at the Goth Garage Sale event. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little black kitty with glowing yellow eyes. Some of the participating vendors have hidden their hunt item within their store booth. Some vendors also have their hunt item hidden on the even grounds near their booth. It was my experience that most items were “hidden in plain sight.” So keep an eye out for those glowing yellow eyes!

The Hair – I think this hairstyle from EscalateD is so fun. It’s a little bit pin-up, a little bit punk-rock, and a whole lot of fun! It is EscalateD’s 5 linden Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. The style comes with a cool dip dye hud with dark hair that has several brightly colored “dips.” There is also a color change hud for the hair bow.

The Necklace – The Little Bat has this beautiful necklace for their Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Purchase their hunt prize and you will receive the neck;ace and a texture/color change hud. The hud has 14 gemstone colors to choose from. The necklace also has resize scripts.

The Septum Piercing – This simple captive bead nose ring is one of two Goth Garage Sale Hunt prizes from Astara. This silver version is just 5 linden and it includes a color change hud for the captive bead. The other Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize from Astara is the same piercing in gold.

The Pillows – These cute pillows are the OOPS Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. For just 5 linden you get a set of unscripted decorative pillows, and a hold-able version. The hold-able version has a texture change hud so you can choose which version of the pillow you want. The decorative pillows can be manually sized.

The Dress – The mid-thigh length dress Pru is wearing is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by WitchCraft. The dress includes a color/texture change hud with 3 different variations of this geometric galaxy print. This 5L prize comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and eBody.

The Nails – The intentionally chippy manicure Pru has is from the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Dark Passions. This “Koffin” nails hud gives you 6 vampy pastel polish shades in a chipped or solid option. The appliers will work for fingernails as well as toenails. There is a Slink applier, a Maitreya applier, and an Omega applier included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

I could really use some gorgeous scenery and a little romance in my life! This little dress (emphasis on little) is a free group gift at Simple. I will say I felt sexy wearing it.

I really can’t think of a better way to start of a romantic weekend then with a little bubbly and a sexy dress.

The Dress – I wasn’t exaggerating when I said this dress is short, you’ve been warned! I’d even consider wearing it with some shorts, it’d be cute! This flirty dress is a free group gift at Simple. At this time the Simple group is also free to join at this time. This gift comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only in the blue floral pattern shown.

The Basket & Fruit – I have Aphrodite Shop to thank for the free gift basket of drinks and goodies, along with the spread of fresh fruit. This decorative item is a free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/27/2018 – Uncharted

Uncharted Exterior
Hi There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, well you know how I do. I should just be honest and say “It’s almost Saturday!” haha The point is I’m happy to be here and to have you here reading this week’s Designer Friday post. This week is all about one of the more recent additions to our Fab Free designer family, Uncharted. Let me tell you, if you’re in need of some summer attire, this is a good place to start your shopping. The best way I can think of to describe the style of ladies clothing at Uncharted is mostly casual warm weather clothing. I saw short shorts, cropped tops, cute little dresses, and the like.
Uncharted Gifts
Speaking of cropped tops, there is a current Uncharted store group gift crop top available. It requires you to join the free-to-join E\M Events group to get the gift. You’ll notice right away that Uncharted is a fairly small shop, and everything is clearly labeled. I always love it when things are easy to locate in any store, big or small. For more group gifts head to the back of the shop under the big “Sponsor Gifts” sign. Each of the groups under this sign has a gift specific to that group. This is where you can pick up the Uncharted Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Nevi showed of this swanky red dress in her post “Simply Red.” To get your copy of this free gift, wear your Fab Free group tag and click the Fab Free sign. Also, Uncharted is having a big sale. On the same wall as the Fab Free and other group gifts, there are quite a few items marked down to just 50 linden each. All these gifts, and a sale too, sounds like the perfect way to beef up your summer wardrobe! Happy Shopping!

Pool Side

Pool Side
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m glad you’re here. This cute little pup and I have been having some fun by the pool. Being pools side gave me the perfect excuse to wear this cute little outfit from Tiar. It’s one of the many current Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. I also picked up this cute upper-body tattoo by Primal on the Marketplace after Love pointed it out to me. I really like the freckle-like hearts. I hope you enjoy these fabulous freebies!

The Outfit – This cute little two-piece is perfect for lounging by the pool or walking along the beach. It comes in several mesh sizes and is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. You can pick it up at Tiar while wearing your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. At the Tiar landing point you can take the teleporter to the gifts area, or just head strait to the back of the store. This Fab Free gift along with a gift for the guys is waiting with the Tiar group gift, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Tattoo – I really like that this tattoo by Primal gives you little hearts across your chest and shoulders, as well as on your hands. I think it’s a very dainty tattoo. It is free on the Marketplace. With this free gift you’ll get Omega appliers and classic system layers in Faded, Normal, and Fresh options. The system layers make this tattoo suitable for classic avatars as well as mesh.

P.S. Two of the pool-side props are Marketplace freebies/cheapies I wanted to let you in on as well. I’ll link them in the credits with their cost so you can pick them up as well!

Splashing Around at the Beach

Splashing Around at the Beach

Hello FabFree!

Today I decided I need a beach day, so I decided to head over to Adele, in my new bathing suit that I picked up from Mermaid Cove and try out the texture change between dry and wet. Well, as I am exploring Salt from Salt and Pepper comes into group chat and says they have a new Group Gift out! Turns out it’s the cover-up for my new bathing suit, so I had to share it all with you!

The in-world Salt and Pepper group is $300L to join, but past gifts are also available in-store, you can see some past gift coverage {here}. The group gift and bathing suit react to SL water! When you walk into water or interact with other S&P Aquasense items, the texture will change to mermaid! I completely admit, I may have squealed a little when I first got into the water and my entire suit changed, but we won’t talk about that… Giggles. It’s like you have two-in-one! The HUD also offers your cover-up or suit to be mermaid or dry all the time. As well as allowing you to change the amount of seconds it takes for your outfit to dry, after entering the water and activating the interactive function!

The Sierra group gift is located inside the Salt and Pepper main store, on a huge billboard/poster, you can’t miss it! Just don’t forget to wear your group tag!!

Salt and Pepper- Sierra Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/20/2018 – ALB

ALB Exterior
If you’ve never been to ALB (AnaLee Balut) you should go, even if only to see the store. It’s a unique Arabian themed desert oasis. Walking through the store in places is reminiscent of a street bazaar. The main part of the store is several stories, so there’s plenty to explore. At ALB you’ll find mostly ladies clothing, though there is a random mens item here and there. The style at ALB is a little harder to pinpoint! Eclectic is a good word to start with. There is everything from shoes and accessories, to lingerie and ballgowns. You’ll also find fantasy inspired clothing, fashion inspired by history, and even some of what I would call Gorean clothing. As I mentioned, there’s a lot to be had!
ALB Fab Gift
Probably one of the most notable things about the ALB main store is the large camel statue in the center of the main floor. In this same area you’ll quickly be able to spot the ALB gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This gift is free and exclusive to Fabulously Free in SL group members, so don’t forget to wear your group tag! There are two additional group gifts on the same column as the Fab Free gift. Each requires a separate group tag.ALB Gifts & Wearable Demos

As you browse through the vastness at ALB you’ll note that some items have floating text that may say “group gift” or simply “enjoy” among other things. These items are usually group gifts you can purchase for free while wearing your store group tag. The store group is LAMU and it has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Another unique aspect to shopping at ALB are their “wearable demos.” These items often have floating text as well that will say “demo” or something similar. These wearable demos are often free but sometimes cost between 0 and 10 linden. I spotted both group gifts and wearable demos throughout all the floors of the ALB store. The above photos are of a few but I am certain not all of these gift types just to give you an idea of the genuinely wide range of items. Happy shopping Fab Free, and have a wonderful weekend.
