Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

My picture today is chock-full of freebies, it’s very exciting. Don’t believe me? Just watch.

The Dress

I think this is just the sweetest dress. It comes with a HUD so you can choose from 4 different colors. I got it at Synford Style. When you land, you will be invited to join a group – that is not the one that you need to be in to get the free gifts. Instead you’ll need to join the Synford Style VIP group, which is also free. Then you’ll have access to the free group gifts, including this dress. It comes sized for the following bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

And The Necklace

I’ve been meaning to join the Nanika group and finally did. The join fee is only 50L and there are 3 really great necklaces set out as free group gifts. I’m a sucker for this choker style tied in a bow. It includes a HUD for 4 color options.

And Even The Pose

This pose is part of a pack of 5 that are a free gift for the #Faded group. The group is free to join. They’re all really natural, pretty poses – my favorite kind.

Them Lips

Them Lips

Hey, fabulous readers – I hope you’re not tired of seeing teeny, weeny bikinis here at Fab Free because I’ve got another one to show you, lol! 😀

Feeling Glam and Tan

La-tee-da, SL life is keeping me sooo busy. I mean, lounging by the pool sipping cocktails is just exhausting, you know?

KIDDING.

But seriously, I’ve been spending so much time in the sun lately that I managed to get a really awesome tan. Actually, I’m still a little bit sunburned, but that’s ok. Totally worth it.

And you know what? YOU can get this awesome tan, too. Because it’s a gift. From Glam Affair. 🙂

Remember a couple of days ago when Love showed you the latest Glam Affair group gift, which included the Masha applier for Catwa heads? Well, there was also an applier for LeLutka heads in the box, and it’s super cute!

Like Masha, Rachel Sunny Day has a bit of a rosy sunburn. 4 brow colors and a “no-brow” option are included, as well as 3 variations of freckles and moles, and 2 extra face contour options. A Sunny Day body applier for Maitreya is included in the box.

Rachel is so pretty that I can see myself wearing this skin for the rest of the summer. I love the tan lines!

Strings Attached

Like I said, in case you haven’t seen enough sexy bikinis, here comes another one!

The String Bikini with Mini Sarong is the July group gift from Ghee. The bikini comes with a HUD containing 6 different color textures, and you can color the top and bottom separately if you so desire.

The whole outfit comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Two Lips and a Cocktail

Merak set out the Lips Floatie and Cocktail as their latest group gift. The floatie comes in 3 options: still, rotating, and another for a standing pose. Several cute animations are included. The cocktail can be added to your avatar with or without a pose, or it can be rezzed to keep handy nearby.

Because you never know when you’ll need a summer cocktail.

GROUP GIFT AT MERAK

Ok, back to work for me. As you can see, I’m sooper busy today. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Beached Bunny

Beach Bunny

Hey, fabulous readers! I’ve been traipsing all over this beach looking for Aline. I know she’s out here somewhere… you haven’t seen her, have you?

I wonder if I’m at the wrong beach?

Oh well… no worries. She’ll turn up eventually. Right now, I need to sit down and put on some sunscreen before I get burned to a crisp!

And I’ve got some amazing items from The Beached Bunny Hunt 8 (TBBH8) to show you, so here we go! 😀

I Need Another Set of Hands

And since this is SL, I supposed I could always add a few more, right? LOL!

Anyway, I’ve got so much great beach stuff to carry, thanks to this adorable pose from X.T.C. Poses for TBBH8. The Them Summer Days pose includes the cute bento pose (obviously), as well as the sunglasses, ice cream cone, and bag full of beach essentials (including sunscreen, thank goodness).

My colorful swimsuit is TBBH8 gift from Anny’s Fashion. It includes the towel swung over my shoulder and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

All gifts in TBBH8 are 1L each. The hunt runs through July 31st.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

I’m Ready – Let the Fireworks Fly!

You Should Be Here

Well hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I are over at Landscape Dialogue scoping out a good spot to catch some 4th of July fireworks later on tonight.  I’ll be bringing a cooler of refreshments and goodies to munch on.  Ripley, however, is planning on staying home.  The loud explosions and acrid scent of the black and flash powders cause him to huddle trembling under the computer desk.  So, it looks like there will be plenty of room for friends all along this sturdy stone wall.  You should come!

I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

Well, not really, but they sure came in handy today while searching for the perfect viewing spot.  The best part?  They are part of a free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group from the Frimon Store.  The package also includes the seated Nando pose I used for my snapshot, both as a pose ball to rez and the isolated pose itself.  It worked well for my rest break on the wall, but also could be used for chairs, benches, etc.  I had to edit the sunglasses so they perched correctly on my hand, but even with my basic editing skills, it was a piece of cake to adjust them.  To pick up this fantastic free offer, simply switch to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and click the vendor.

Stars and Stripes for the Big Day

Well, I am the star (wink), but my stripes are found on my new free Glamour pants from Treized Designs.  With a dashing black and white design, these classic joggers will have you outfitted in style.  Bold white stripes run down the outside edge of each leg and adorn the side pockets (which are handy for carrying along everyday essentials).  An interesting feature that I had not seen before is the double waistband with dual string ties.  I like this unusual design element!  The gift box includes classic as well as mesh body fits.  You need to be a member of Treized Designs to receive this free gift, but the join fee is only 0L, so it was just right for my budget!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Belleza
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Nx-David
  • Slink

I’m off to get Ripley back home before firecrackers start going off and scare the bejeebers out of the poor guy.  Happy 4th of July to all our readers in the USA!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Watch the night go up in smoke

Watch the night go up in smoke

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! Forgive me for using a title from a British band, surely that’s un-patriotic on a day like today. haha But I absolutely love Def Leppard and I went to their show last night so I couldn’t help myself. Anyway. I already went on about how much I love the 4th of July in my last post on the subject so I’ll spare you today. I took a trip to the boardwalk last time and now I’m at the place where all of the independence Days of my youth were spent – the lake. And obviously I’ve got freebies to show you!

Bikini

My bikini is a free group gift by Legendaire. It is not one of the newer group gifts, it’s on the wall in the back with aaaaall of the other older (but still fabulous!) gifts. Hopefully my slurl will lead the way to where you need to go. The Legendaire VIP group is 49L to join and there are lots and lots of nice gifts, you’ll literally be unpacking for days! And by literally, I mean figuratively. The bikini is one piece and also comes with a really cute little robe (blue with white stars). Both are sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Houglass and Physique
  • 5 Standard sizes XL-XS

Sparkler

I love this sparkler from peaches! I’m going the walk around all day holding it, just see if I don’t! There are options to change the color, turn it on and off, or set the duration. Oh and it has some poses too that let you wave it around which I’m not using. It is a free group gift and the .peaches. group is free to join.

Pose

This great pose is a free group gift from K&S and the group is free to join. My animations folder is out of control but I can’t help it, I love poses soooo much. If you feel the same way that I do then you can run on over and add this to your collection!

 

Alright, I guess that’s enough from me. I’m going to run off to blow something up and kiss a bald eagle. ‘Merica! Happy 4th!

Botanical Skirt

This skirt is one of the free group gifts at AGATA mode. The group is free to join and there are some other gifts available as well, including nice stuff for the guys. I love the tropical pattern and how it sits low on my hips so that my bikini peaks out. Super cute! The sizes included are:

  • standard
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Beach Ball

My pose is from [west end] and it comes with the ball to hold. It is a FabFree free group gift and of course FabFree is free to join. I said “free” a lot of times in that last sentence. Nothing wrong with that!

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

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

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.
