Not a Cloud in the Skye

Listen to Your Heart
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday at last!  Here I am enjoying one final moment at the shore (Ripley is off chasing gulls) before the shopping and prep work for Thanksgiving begin.  It sure would be nice to spend the whole weekend here at NorderNey, curled up on the beach with a pile of books.  Someday, maybe!

A Hint of Pink in the Skye

My sweet swimwear from Just Ordinary features white hearts scattered across a pale pink background.  “Skye” features realistic folds in the fabric, and golden half circle closures on both the bikini top and swimsuit bottom.  I love the flared skirt, asymmetrical hemline, and the ties that dangle down my back.  To add this free group gift to your beach wear collection, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Just Ordinary group tag (it’s completely free to join), and tap the group gift vendor.  This package offers something for everyone – from classic mesh, to fit mesh and versions for popular mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

Off to Save Some Birds

The poor seagulls……  The pupster has been having the time of his life chasing them up and down the surf while I tried to capture the perfect picture.  One feathered fellow just caught my eye, and I could tell he was getting pretty fed up with Rip’s antics.  It’s time for mission “Gull Rescue” to swing into operation.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Summer’s Last Sunset

Summer's Last Sunset

A Sad Farewell…

As we say goodbye to summer (Goodbye summer, we will miss you.) and move into fall (Hi fall, how are you?), I reflect back on the summer of ’17. I’m glad it’s past but I am going to miss the warm days, the summer breeze,  and the sun setting later in the evening.

A Gift to be Happy About…

I’ve slipped out of my skin today and into a new FREE Mesh Avatar from ExMachina. If you are wanting to experiment with a mesh avatar or have a newbie friend, this would be a good starter for them. The best part, the group is FREE to join. I’m also wearing a pair of Swimsuit Shorts by !BBN! that is free to members of the Menstuff group. The group has a one time join fee of 50L but there are several gifts on the wall to make the lindens worth it.

♫ Though we gotta say goodbye, to the summer
Baby I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss  ♫

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass) / Maitreya Lara / Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Moon Child

Lunar Obsession
If you haven’t been by The Coven Lunar Festival yet, you should go if for no other reason than to enjoy the delightfully spook atmosphere, and oh yeah, tons of FREE gifts! There is some stellar shopping available as well, but this is a FREEbie blog, so I’ll try to stay focused. lol At the landing point for The Coven you’ll see a group joiner, you’ll want to join the FREE group for The Coven so you can snag all the free witchy goth goodness. Once you’re wearing The Coven group tag, you can click on the little cauldrons with glowing purple contents at each of the participating vendor booths. I picked up quite a few gifts, and it was hard to narrow things down to a few favorites. The gifts range from clothing and accessories to decor.

Boho Suit

The sexy mono-kini is a The Coven event group gift from Nightmare. This mesh swimwear fits like a glove, and has a truly unique style in the back. You’ll have to pick this FREE gift up for yourself to see what I mean. I think it’s cute on it’s own, however it would also look cute with a pair of shorts or a long skirt.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Chloe

I love this long hairstyle by Vallani. Named Chloe, the hairstyle is Vallani’s FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. This gift includes the single hairstyle with a color change hud. There are quite a few color options including mostly “natural” red, white, blond, brunette, and black variations. There is a highlight texture, and a soft texture option for each of the colors. The one thing that makes this hud a bit different from most is there is a tinting option that allows you to pick a hair color then tint it any color you want. The possibilities are endless!

The Cyanide Mini Series

The pose used in the above photo is part of the gift at The Coven event by An Lar. This static pose is part of a set called the Cyanide Mini Series which comes with three individual poses and their mirrors for six total static poses. As a blogger and a photographer I am always excited about awesome FREE pose gifts! This particular pose is the second in the series, and my favorite of the three.
Moon Child

Onyx

This thin collar with the starburst dangle is the FREE gift at The Coven event from Kibitz. With this gift you’ll receive the choker/collar in black with the choice of either an onyx (shown), silver, or gold charm. There are no scripts in this jewelry, however it can be sized manually. It also has the added detail of a chain clasp in the back.

Moon Tie

Maybe it’s just me but I think mouthies might be making a comeback in Second Life. This cute FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival is by Peaches. There are a few variations of this thin ribbon with dangling moons included in this gift. You can choose either a black ribbon with silver moons or gold moons, or a white ribbon with silver or gold moons.

Moon & Star Bindi

Oubliette put out this cute crescent moon and star bindi as their FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. I love how delicate it looks. This simple yet pretty bindi has no scripts or huds, however you can adjust the size and color manually using the edit menu. Should you choose to edit this yourself, I highly suggest making a copy of it first just in case!

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve got a couple of group gifts I’ve been dying to share with you. Technically one is a Lucky Letter board prize, but we will get into that in a moment. I don’t know about you, but I am of the personal opinion that sometimes being blonde is more fun.

QTPIE

Whether you’re in agreement about blonde hair or would rather have any other color, you’re in luck because this super cute hairstyle is a current fat-pack group gift from Love. That’s right, you get all the color huds the Love brand offers.  The Love main location is temporarily under construction, though the owner/designer says it shouldn’t be under construction for much longer. The good news is this FREE group gift is available in the group notices. The Love group is also FREE to join. Once you’ve joined the group (I was able to find it by searching “Love Hair”) you can pull up the past notices and snag your gift. Oh, and before I forget, this style called “QTPIE” can be worn with or without the long strands, and there is a rigged and non-rigged mesh version for easy resizing if needed.

Lucky in Silver

As I mentioned, the second group gift featured in this post is a Lucky Letter board prize for group members only. Right now Apple May Designs has this gorgeous silver bikini/lounge wear/whatever adorable thing as a FREE Lucky Letter board prize for all AMD group members. The Apple May Designs group is just 25 lindens to join at this time. There’s also a second Lucky Letter board with this same gorgeous gift in gold. I’m still stalking that one! This mesh set comes in several sizes, and is every bit as pretty as it looks. Don’t forget, you will need an AMD tag to participate with these group only Lucky Letter boards. Good Luck, and may the letters or numbers be ever in your favor!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/14/2017 – Nala Designs

Nala Designs
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you but I am so glad the weekend is here. It’s been along week and I am ready to relax a little bit. I also am in need of some freebie retail therapy. Thankfully I have the pleasure of sharing with you Nala Designs for this weeks edition Fab Free Designer Friday. There are many opportunities at Nala Designs for FREE and inexpensive items. The above photo is of the Nala Designs front desk. Here is where you can join the Nala Designs group and you’ll want to check out the little pink gift box. It’s a 5 linden gift. Most of the Nala Designs items are mesh trendy casual women’s clothing items in great colors and patterns. Additionally there are a few formal gowns and dresses, and I even spotted a men’s formal suit. There’s also a lingerie department on the second floor.
Nala Downstairs
The Nala Designs group is just 50 linden to join. Directly to the right of the desk you’ll see the wall of information. Check out that information space for info on hunts, events, and other group affiliations. To the left of the front desk you’ll see two discount vendors next to a pretty mirror. You can score two 50L items there. Also, the mirror will let you teleport to a discount area. As you travel through the store toward the back of the first floor, you’ll find the FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift. This is for Fabulously Free in SL group members only, so don’t forget your Fab Free tag! If you’re not already a member of the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join.  At the very back of the store you’ll also see a Midnight Mania board, and a Night Prize Board. I was able to join the Night Prize board without a group tag. Also while you’re exploring the first floor, keep your eye out for a round side table with a little blue gift package. There you’ll find a 10 linden swimsuit, it’s on the right side of the main floor. As if these great gifts and discounts were not awesome enough, there’s more to be found upstairs.
Nala Upstairs
Once you’re upstairs, you’ll find two additional group gifts for other groups among the regular store vendors. The upstairs is also where the Nala Designs group only Lucky Letter boards can be found. You will need to be sure to wear the Nala Designs group tag to participate in the Lucky Boards. Needless to say there are plenty of Fabulous reasons for you to visit Nala Designs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach!  With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday.  I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy.  It will be wonderful!  I hope you have some time with family and friends, too.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley – save a chocolate frosting free cupcake for me, please!)

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/07/2017 – The Man Cave

The Man Cave
It’s FriYay and I’m ready to sing! Okay maybe no singing, but I am definitely excited to be here. Today’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about The Man Cave. Yep, a store for the guys, that has to be exciting. I know it doesn’t happen as often as we would like. The Man Cave has mostly casual menswear including some shoes and accessories. It would be a great spot to pick up everyday attire. The layout of the shop is fairly strait forward, new releases to the left as you enter the store, and little foot prints on the the floor leading you to a few bargains at the back of the store. Wouldn’t it be great if all shops were so easy to get around?!
The Man Cave Gifts & Offers
At the back of the store is where you’ll find The Man Cave information desk. There you can join the group, and buy gift cards. Along the back wall are where the various bargains and offers are available, including the FREE Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Carson showed this awesome gift in his post “Welcome to Minerva.” The gift includes the hat, sunglasses, and shoes.  Also, in the same area there is a Midnight Madness board with no group required. It has a low target of just 10 people and the current prize is a 100 linden gift card for The Man Cave. So, it’s definitely worth the effort to check out The Man Cave!
