Have Some FREE Fun in the Sun!

BRM 1

Hello Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve been in major need of some rest and relaxation. It’s been a hectic week! Fortunately there’s a little spot I’ve been meaning to check out in Second Life called BRM Radio that can provide just that. It’s a serene waterside location with awesome music to listen to while you enjoy the surroundings. Not to mention there’s some free swag! Also, I recently came across this lovely skin from a new-to-me shop called E. Vary. I really like this skin quite a bit!
BRM First, I know we focus on free and inexpensive fashion a lot on the Fab Free blog, so I’m happy to let you know about the BRM Radio location. It’s a FREE place to hangout and enjoy some fantastic music as well as the scenery and some activities. There is a 7 Seas Fishing setup at the BRM Radio off one of the docks. Need a place to rez? The land is open to rezing for all group members. *UPDATE 6/26/2016 – Rezing is open for everyone, no group needed! Fancy a little boating? The BRM Radio location is on the open water, and there’s a FREE boat rez-er so you and your friends or perhaps a significant other can enjoy an afternoon on the water. Additionally find this cute mesh ladies BRM logo Henley inside the office at the landing point  for FREE. You’ll need to join the BRM Radio group, however the group is also FREE to join. The shirt is fully mesh and includes a color change hud with several color options. I love this style top for a cute, comfy, casual look, not to mention it’s kind of perfect for boating. There’s also a men’s version available as well, and a BRM Radio lanyard. If you enjoy the music while you’re there, and I’m sure you will, BRM Radio also has a link so you can listen to BRM Radio while at your home land. I hope you enjoy this relaxing little spot, maybe I’ll see you there!

Now, let’s talk about this skin from E. Vary. This lovely skin is the FREE June subscriber group gift from E. Vary. Her name is Lina – Morena, and I think she’s very pretty. This generous group gift includes classic system skins, tattoo lipstick, freckle, and eye-shadow layers, 4 shapes, an Omega body applier with cleavage options, as well as a mesh head hud that includes options for Catwa, Eve, Genesis, Visage, and Omega compatible heads. Also the system skins and the mesh head applier hud allow you to choose to wear the skin bare, with no freckles/beauty marks or makeup, or with them. To get this FREE gift, simply join the subscriber right next to the photo of the Lina – Morena skin in front of the desk, and the gift will be sent to you!

Blue Moon

Blue MoonHello Fab Free’rs and Happy Hump Day! We are half way through the week and I am very excited to share a few more gifts in honor of Second Life’s 13th birthday! This time the gifts can be found at the round of Kustom 9 that just started. Also, get excited, Lumae has a new group gift out and she’s super pretty!

I can’t believe SL has entered the teen years! Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday we were all still figuring out this wacky wonderful world. To help celebrate this birthday, several designers have placed out birthday cakes (just like the ones at Hairology) with FREE gifts at Kustom 9. Simply click the cake, and get the gift! This gorgeous long hairstyle by Mithral is one of the many FREE gifts. This mesh style includes a regular version and a “busty” version, as well as an alpha layer.

Also at Kustom 9, in the FREE cake from Eclat is this adorably delicate little necklace. I love how dainty and feminine this simple yet elegant piece of jewelry looks. This lovely gift comes in a gold version (shown) and a silver version; both can be re-sized via touch menu.

How pretty is this FREE skin from Lumae?! The Lumae group is currently 1 linden to join. With that single linden you can get this lovely skin and every applier Lumae makes to match! Not to mention the gift has lots of options in appliers and system layers including cleavage, brow color, and freckles or no freckles. Also, you can still pick up a few of the past group gifts while wearing your Lumae tag! You wont want to miss this one!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hey Bae!

Snapshot_003
Hi there Fabulous Readers!  This past weekend, I spend much of it doing just this…  sitting on the patio in a chair just enjoying the sun :)  I only wish I had this adorable and very comfy looking Hey Bae Shorts & T-Shirt Set that I picked up as a free group gift at Cynful today.  This set comes in the pink/blue dip dyed version that I am showing in my photo and is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies.  On the back of the shirt and shorts it reads…  “Good vibes only”.   The Cynful inworld group is free to join – and they have mentioned that they plan to offer bi-monthly group gifts!

I haven’t taken a front on photo of it, so I am also including the vendor ad below.

You may have noticed my face is looking a little different than normal today. I switched up my usual head and skin today to show off the new Catwa Applier Insol gacha offering at the new round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  On my Catwa Annie Mesh Head, I am wearing the Insol Ilona skin applier that is just 75L per play.    There are 14 commons and 2 rares.  I believe…  if I remember correctly, that I am wearing #13 – which is a common.  It offers a very simple look with freckles and glossy lips.Snapshot_007

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!
