Happy 10th Anniversary Essences!


Happy Anniversary Essences

If I had to choose a favorite skin shop in Second Life I’d without hesitation choose Essences as m personal favorite. There are lots of amazing skins in SL. Still, Essences has for many years been the source of the skins I wear the most. Recently Essences celebrated 10 years in Second Life. In celebration their in world VIP group and the Essences Newsletter group are both temporarily free to join. There are also 3 new fat-pack Newsletter group gift head appliers.

Each of the 3 Essences appliers is for a different mesh head. There is one for Catwa, one for Genus, and one for Lelutka heads. These free gifts come with a head applier in each of the available skin tones with a light brow, dark brow, or no brow option. Don’t have the body applier to go with these gorgeous new skins? No problem. The body appliers are just 1 linden per mesh body type. I’m wearing the “Sybil” gift applier for the Catwa heads in the above photo. This applier was made with the Catwa Catya head, however I think she’s quite pretty on my Catwa Koura head. To get your copy of these absolutely beautiful free gifts make your way to Essences, join the free-to-join Essences Newsletter group, and click the gift vendors.

Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy

Isn’t it funny how attached we get to our virtual world? Our pets and our friends on the Grid become part of our ‘real’ life as much as they are in our Second Life. At least, I hope it’s not just me…

Beautiful Boy

Jack is sporting a new coat today curtesy of the brilliant Cinnamon and a lucky “J” on the group Lucky Chairs. This is the “Velvet Dapple – Bay” and it’s on the Lucky Chairs for the Cinnamon Group members. As with every Cinnamon design I’ve encountered, this coat is just lovely. The dapples are rich and subtle just like a realistic horse coloration.

The prize comes with the applier for your WaterHorse Riding Horse and your WaterHorse Riding Unicorn. Both sets of hooves are included. If you can’t wait for the Chair to toss up your letter, the entire Velvet Dapples series is for sale at the Cinnamon main store.

Horse Cuddles…

… are some of the best cuddles! And you can get your WaterHorse cuddles with Antaya’s latest free Group Gift for the Vsteed group. I’ve talked about the Vsteed group before and I’ll say again… this is a warm friendly group with tons of info and advice for all things ridable in Second Life.  So let’s talk about Antaya… if you want poses for your WaterHorse Riding horses or the Jinx Centaur… Antaya is a definite Go-To Designer. This pose is scripted into a bale of hay to sit on and is movable by editing that bale. The pose is made for the WaterHorse Riding Horse but I don’t know if it will work with the Riding Unicorn.

Riding Casual

Last but certainly not least is my cute casual shorts and top perfect for a summer day of riding. This is the “Twila” top and the “Tricia” shorts from Shae’s Designs and you can pick them both up for just 10L each at the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale at the Wash. There are eight cool colors for the striped Twila top and eight shades of denim for the Tricia shorts. And at just 10L, you can pick your favorites and not bust the wallet. But you’ll need to hurry… the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale is packing up and leaving town on the 24th!

The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Hey there Fabulouses!  I have news today of a new free bento dance animation at Move! Animations.  I was inspired by this dance to spend some time in the sand at Kanaloa Surf Beach, admiring the waves.  I hope you enjoy the video as much as I had fun making it :).  It’s a quick video at just over a minute, so it won’t take up too much of your day!

Dance along with me!

At Move! Animations, you’ll find the Julia 27 Bento Dance for FREE.  You’ll find a few dance pads with a sign above it and all you need to do is touch the sign!  No need to be in the group (unless you want to, of course!!).  The Julia 27 Bento Dance is almost 40 seconds long and is fun, sexy and chill.

Feels Like Summertime


I have no idea what to call this.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Saturday. In my post today I want to share with you the March group gift at PumeC and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. The combination of the two really made me daydream about warmer weather. I hope you like them both as much as I do.

The Skin – The March group gift at PumeC is a full skin with Genus head and body appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega  in all skin tones. This gorgeous gift also includes body only base skins in each tone, a default shape, and brow shaper. For me the best part o Free f this skin is the summery freckles across the forehead, cheeks, and nose. The PumeC group has a one-time join fee of 399 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can peep the six skin tones and get a better look at those lovely freckles.

The Top – This low-cut, draped halter style top is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. It’s the perfect warm weather top. Included with this fitted mesh top is a color change hud with 12 solid color options to choose from. There’s also an alpha layer so the top can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars as well. To get your copy, head to the group gift area of the Posh Tale store and click the gift vendor. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag!

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.

Good Vibes Only


Good Vibes Only

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing well. For today’s post I’m excited to share with you a completely free skin by Insol for Genus Project head wearers. Additionally, Pru is wearing the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. I really do like the message on this halter top by Meowhi. In my opinion we just don’t have time for anything other than good vibes!

The Skin – So once again Love pointed me in the direction of this gorgeous freebie. Insol has this “Mary” Genus head applier out for free. There’s no need to join the group. You can head over to their current but temporary location and purchase this gift for free. The gift is waiting on the desk in a little purple gift box. The Mary skin by Insol comes in several tones, each with or without brows. If you need body appliers for the Insol skin tones, you can purchase those for free as well. The body appliers vendor is on the wall opposite the desk. Pru is wearing the “Cinnamon” tone.
Head Appliers Included with Mary Skin: Genus Project Only
Body Appliers Available Separately: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista, Omega

The Halter Top – This pretty blue halter top is the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. The EKH is a 10 linden hunt, and at Meowhi 100% of the proceeds will go to the Education for Kenya cause. I love when shopping also has a positive purpose other than growing my wardrobe. The hunt object is a pencil. Just to give you a little hint, look low. Happy hunting!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya
