Notes on Ombré

Notes on Ombré

I’m all about the ombré look.  There is something quite appealing in the fading of colours together that makes me feel a bit like I’m wearing a painter’s palette.  I can picture myself swirling graciously on a canvas.  Or perhaps, depending on the colours, I can be an electric current.  Today I’m feeling a bit like the latter, but that might be because of this hot outfit, and not just the colours!

Hucci Mama!

Hucci has provided me with this really cool jumpsuit.  It comes all in one piece and includes the attached heels!  I love the pastel ombré of course, and the outfit makes me feel like making my way to a club and holding court on the dance floor.  In fact, that’s where I’m heading in the photo!  You can grab this FREE gift by heading to Hucci, clicking on the subscriber (It’s the big sign that says Group Join), then clicking on the little box that says “Touch Here to get Previously Sent Items”.  A menu will pop up, and from there you choose the February Gift, and click “Deliver”.  Ta-Da!  You may have to be a little patient, but it will happen 😉

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Happy Valentine’s Day To ME!

blackgoldvday
Good morning Fabulouses!  Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and time is running out to find the perfect outfit for date night.  While I was madly trying to teleport into the Shop Your Heart Out Event last night I came across a couple of Valentines Day gifts on my flickr feed by two different designers that seem as if they were made for each other.

I finally did make it into the event late in the evening, and picked up a ton of gifts to show you soon, however I also stopped inworld and picked up the couple of gifts I found while I was waiting and I’m super excited to show you these today.

It was love at first sight!

Nerido was my first stop, where I picked up the Agata Dress in the perfectly timed heart print texture – which is a new Valentine’s Day group gift for Nerido group members.  This dress is Maitreya specific and comes with a pair of panties for modesty.  The sheer black beaded bodice is part of this sexy little number and it comes in both black and red.  I have included their vendor ad below so you can see the beautiful red colour too!  This group is 199L to join, but I’d have easily paid that for this dress.  There is another group gift available to obtain, and now I’m in the group for future offers and gifts too!


~Nerido~Agata Dress(Maitreya)-Heart GROUP GIFT

Show Stopper Boots

If there was ever a pair of show stopper boots – these are it.  They are A M A Z I N G!  You won’t even believe when I tell you that they are absolutely FREE and it won’t even take up a group space!  The over the knee Demet Vday Boots are available as a free gift for subscribing at ChicChica!  These gold sparkled black suede beauties are also Maitreya fitted, however with the right alpha hud, they may work with other bodies too.  To obtain these boots, simply join the subscribomatic and then click it again to select history and then #1 to have them delivered.

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/05/2018 – Liquid

Liquid Front Entrance
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m bringing this Fabulous Friday to a close with the Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week I have the pleasure of featuring a little shop called Liquid. As far as I am aware, Liquid is a fairly recent shop in Second Life. Their products are mostly mesh and applier eyes, makeup, and some tattoos.  While these items are predominately for the females, there are also products for the gents, and even some unisex finds. Generally speaking the appliers sold at Liquid are meant for Catwa or Lelutka head users, but I’d keep an eye out for more offerings in the future. That’s not an insider hint, just a personal opinion. One of the things I really like about Liquid is that it is a very well organized, easy-to-shop-at store. Also, all the information about Liquid, including events and group gifts can be found all in the same spot just as you enter the store.
Liquid Desk close up
As I said, everything you could need, the group joiner, subscriber, event information, it’s all right here at the desk as you enter Liquid. This is also where you’ll find the group gifts Liquid currently has to offer. To the left is the Liquid group gift, a gorgeous lipstick applier. You’ll need to join the Liquid VIP group to grab this gift, which is currently FREE to join. To the right I’m sure you recognized the Fabulously Free in SL group joiner. Those lovely blue eyes are an exclusive gift for Fab Free group members. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag! Also, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you the Fab Free group is FREE to join. The Fab Free gift is a good example of one of the unisex items at Liquid. Don’t miss out on these pretty freebies! Happy shopping Fab Free’rs.

Winter in Blue

Winter Blues
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you some of the gifts available at the Cosmetic Fair and a FREE gift from Argrace. I have to say I really like how these gifts all came together to help create this look. I have been enjoying the pastels this winter season. I hope enjoy these gifts as much as I do.

Argrace

First thing first, who doesn’t like FREE hair? The right hairstyle can make or break a look. So in my mind there’s no such thing as too many options! This slightly wind-swept long hairstyle complete with the beanie is a FREE gift at Argrace. You may need to join the subscriber at Argrace, however no “in-world” group is required. Pru is in the Argrace subscriber, and was able to click the gift without joining a group, and it was delivered instantly. This is a fatpack gift so there are quite a few hair color options for this FREE gift. Additionally there is a color change hud for the beanie that gives you a hand-full of preset color options. Also, there’s a male version of this gift available. Carson showed the male Argrace gift in his post “Right in the Kisser.”

Next up, many of the designers participating in the current round of the Cosmetic Fair have set out FREE group gifts. You’ll need to join the Cosmetic Fair group and wear the group tag while clicking the gifts to get your copy. The Cosmetic Fair group is FREE to join.

LIVIA

This gorgeous nail polish is one of the six color combo options in the “First Snow” nail set by LIVIA. This set is a FREE gift at the Cosmetic Fair. Each color has the option of painting all your nails with the dark tip and snow flake over a glossy pastel or mixing it up with a matching glitter polish. I’ve included a copy of the original vendor ad from LIVIA below so you can see these stunning manicures /pedicures yourself.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty, Omega
LIVIA // First Snow (Cosmetic Fair GIFT)

Kokolores

Kokolores also has a FREE gift out at the Cosmetic Fair. The glittery blue eye shadow and pretty pink lip color combination are the makeup applier gift from Kokolores. I think dramatic eye makeup with a pretty subtle lip color is always in style, no matter the season or the decade!

Appliers Included: Omega, Catwa

Shiny Stuffs

I love these lashes from Shiny Stuffs, and not just because they are another FREE gift at the Cosmetic Fair. The lashes have pretty little stars nestled in them. You can use the hud that comes with your Catwa head to color the stars/lashes a different color. I kept them white because I think they look a bit like little snow-flakes caught in Pru’s lashes.

Applier Included: Catwa

Tea

Last, and never least, the FREE Cosmetic Fair gift from Tea is this dainty floral chest tattoo. Some people are not a fan of these watercolor style tattoos, I personally love them. I think there’s something delicate and super feminine about them.

Applier Included: Maitreya

Here are the details, enjoy!

Happily Dispatched

11-22-2017

*******
I was sent out for more firewood, but I really didn’t mind. I enjoy the stillness of a peaceful snowy morning. I even took some time to sit on a fallen log and listened to the deafening silence. I hope she doesn’t get too cold waiting for more kindling for the fire…

My Happy Place…

I was happy to find the Room Sweater and Pants, a subscriber gift from Happy Dispatch. While this outfit claims to be for Signature bodies only, It worked well on my ADAM body.  This outfit includes a texture HUD for 8 shirts and 4 pant textures.  The gift is easy to get. Just click the join group sign to subscribe and the click on the gift to receive this great outfit. The subscriber and the gift are both FREE. There are also past gifts available.

I hope your holiday weekend is a peaceful one.

Resting Witch Face

RWF1
Resting Witch Face

Hello hello Fab Free! Don’t worry, I’m not really gloomy. I just have “Resting Witch Face.” I’m sure some of you can relate to this. I’ve often been told I look upset or even angry when I am genuinely not. I just happen to look that way. So when I saw this FREE Subscriber gift tumbler from Astralia, I had to have it. Admittedly the rest of this look is inspired by the travel mug that cheekily reads “Resting Witch Face” with an arrow pointing up. To get your copy simply head over to Astralia and join their subscriber, then click the gift vendor and the cup will be sent to you.

The TRUTH

This hairstyle, much like Pru’s facial expression, is rather witchy if I do say so myself! These cropped curls are the September Group Gift for TRUTH VIP Group members. As with all the group gifts from TRUTH, this one is a fatpack. Additionally it has a stylist hud so you can change up the style of the hair. I went with this little side braid. I think I’ll be wearing it for a while. Currently the TRUTH VIP group is 350 linden to join.

Cubic Cherries

The top and the bindi Pru has on are both recent group gifts at Cubic Cherry. I think there was even another group gift sent out in the group notices today! I know there are several available at the store. Anyway, I digress, this top is really cute if you’re going for a casual goth look. It comes in a single mesh size (which I think is meant for TMP and could easily be unisex), and in 4 color variations, black & white (shown), black & red, white & black, and white & red. The top fits like a slouchy over-sized tee on my shape/body, which I’m totally okay with. The second gift is the triangular Norse bindi. I like bindis in general, but I think this one is very cool because it’s different from a lot of the ones I am used to seeing. This Cubic Cherry gift comes in black (shown), brass, gold, and silver. At this time the Cubic Cherry group is 66 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ready for Music

Music_002

I love when gifts just appear in my inventory! That’s what is so great about subscriber gifts 😀 And Graffitiwear has sent out their free September subscriber gifts and this month they were so cute I wanted to make sure you fabulous readers didn’t miss out!

Check your inventory!

If you’re already a subscriber to Graffitiwear, check your inventory for the free gift box from Graffitiwear for September and unpack it! You’ll discover a pair of fitmesh tee shirts. One has this great guitar design on the front (shown in the picture above) and the other has a set of headphones (not shown). Both have a “ripped” back design which I wasn’t able to get in the picture, and belatedly wished I’d thought to take a picture of. The outfit has that awesome 90’s music appeal to it!

If you’re not a subscriber, go down to the Graffitiwear main-store and click the subscribomatic for your free gift and that will also sign you up for future gifts as well! You’ll be all set!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/01/2017 – EMU Group

EMU Group Exterior
The Weekend is here Fab Free! Thank goodness. That of course also means it’s time for this week’s designer of the week. This week I’m excited to share with you all about EMU Group. This shop is a bit different than many of the shops we get to discover on the Fab Free blog in that it focuses on scripting, scripted items, furniture, and other builds. Anyone in SL who builds, creates, decorates, or just tinkers would enjoy the EMU Group shop. There’s also an art gallery on the second floor with lots of original artwork. The EMU Group shop is large but easy to navigate. There’s even a room with FREE or very inexpensive items to the right of the main entrance.
EMU Gifts and Info
Once inside the main entrance at EMU Group, you’ll see the online indicator board for the EMU Group team members. There are subscriber group kiosks and group joiners positioned throughout the store. The in world group EMU Group has a one time join fee of 5 lindens. With this group you’ll have group only discounts and access to the group Lucky Chair, and group Midnight Mania boards. Near the chair and boards there’s also a dollarbie gift. In this same room you’ll see new releases on the wall as well. On the same wall is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members. If you’re not in the Fab Free group yet, it’s always FREE to join. Take a moment to explore this cool shop, the EMU Group has something for everyone whether you’re an expert builder or a novice.
