Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

An Uber Good Deal

During this round of Uber, Vinyl is featuring their Red Hot Sweater Dress with a texture change belt / buttons in 16 different colours at 180L each, but also displayed with those gorgeous dresses is an exclusive snowflake printed charcoal grey version for just 75L!  This is a colour, I probably would have chosen at full price – what a deal!  It is hard to see the arms in my photo, but there are buttons on the sleeves that match the super big chunky leather belt.

I’m Here For The Party

I'm here for the party

Hi! I’m Allison, one of the two new Fab Free bloggers, and I’m so excited to be here! I’ve been reading this blog for what seems like my whole slife, so it’s weird being on the other side of things. I’m still like, “omg I need to pick up that cute top Aline is wearing” and “ohhh I want that bikini” when I should be bringing some content. So today I’m giving it a go myself and the things I’m wearing? Pretty fantastic!

Little Green Dress

My dress is the new group gift from Hilly Haalan and the group is free to join. I love the ruffles along the top and the texture has a little bit of sheen to it. It also comes with a HUD that will let you change it to just about any color that your heart desires.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Tres Chic Hair

Many of the fantastic gifts at Tres Chic have been mentioned here already and it’s not too hard to TP in anymore, so there’s no reason not to go grab them for yourself! Just head on over to Tres Chic and join the free group to pick up all of the gifts. This hair is the gift from FABIA there. It’s a low, messy bun with great long bangs. I love a versatile hairstyle that can be dressed up or down!

 

Allison is wearing…

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara

Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Tattoo: Liquid Buttercups
Hair: FABIA Klara (free Tres Chic group gift / 0L / free to join)

Holiday Tacos

Tacos Tequila
Oh Hello There; Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! There are quite a few things that are kind of part of the local culture where I am from. This outfit embodies two of them. For starters, most people have a deep love for tacos. I’m not sure if it is our proximity to Mexico or if the tacos are just that super fantastic, but tacos are serious business out here. Secondly, you could actually wear a long sleeveless top and a scarf in December and be warm enough in the afternoon. You thought I was going to say something about tequila didn’t you?!

Get Lucky at Petite Mort

Okay so tequila isn’t so bad either, and it does go quite well with tacos, but that is not the point. This fun loose tank top is one of many Lucky Letter board prizes at Petite Mort. It comes in several mesh sizes, and in my opinion is well worth the effort. The Petite Mort group tag is required for the Lucky Letter boards. There is a one time join fee of 75 linden at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara (2 sizes)

Also, just in case you missed them, Love blogged a few of the other Lucky Letter board gifts at Petite Mort in her posts “Seeing Sepia… Roses” and “Can’t Stop! Too Many Sales!.

Keep Warm at Clawtooth

Clawtooth recently set out this wispy long hairstyle out as a FREE gift. There is no need to join a group, just pay the gift vendor 0 linden. The knit scarf is part of the hairstyle  Along with the hairstyle you’ll get a color change hud for the scarf, and an “Essentials” hair color pack. Needless to say this awesome Clawtooth FREEbie is a must have.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair w/Scarf – Clawtooth: Snug as a Bug Holiday Gift (Essentials) – FREE Gift $0L

Head – CATWA Unisex HEAD Pink

Skin –  Essences – Rachel

Top – Petite Mort– Tacos/Tequila Sharkbite Tank – Group Lucky Letter Prize / Group is 75L to Join

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A Minute

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A MinuteYou know I really enjoy this time of year, but it is freaking exhausting!  Are you all worn out too?  I feel like I just need to close my eyes around the ruckus for a minute lol.   Two more days to go!

I am stopping by the blog today to share news with you about a couple new free gifts I really like.  First, Due sent out this adorable hairstyle called Teeny for free as a group gift to their inworld VIPs.  This pack includes all the colour huds and seriously could not be any cuter than it is!  The Due group is 100L to join.

Aphorism recently released their new Knee Socks and with that, have placed out a limited edition holiday print as a free subscribe gift!  While I am not wearing a whole lot today to match my socks up to,  these socks do come with a texture change hud that allows you to change between several different colours and come in specific fits for Slink Physique/Hourglass, Maitreya (experimental, but works perfect on mine), and fitted.

Lingerie isn’t something I normally wear in SL as I am always running from shop to shop, but “WOW” when I came across this dainty bodysuit (Karla by Milk Tea) at The Cosmo Sales Room for 75L, I couldn’t pass it up!  Maybe I’ll stay in today 🙂

The beautiful Angel Christmas Tree you see in my photo is a free gift at Hanaya!  I just hit the vendor and it was sent to me, now I am not sure if you need to be a subscriber first or not, because I was already in it to begin with.  If the tree doesn’t get sent to you right away, subscribe (It’s free), and then hit it again 😉

Snapshot_010Hey there Fabulous Readers! It’s not very often I come across a fabulous pair of boots as a free group gift, but I did just that last night at Agapee !  I love these boots so much, I want to wear them inside!  You can join the Agapee inworld group for free and pick up the Lily Boots in the tartan print shown.  It was just what I needed to go with my new Aphorism Trench Coat (available for sale, featured at The Liaison Collaborative in several colours!).

I also have news of some free hair you’ll want to  know about!  Analog Dog has put out a new free bubble (just priced at 0L) on their beach area past the sale section that has the three hairstyles shown below with dark blonde and light red colour HUDS.
AnalogDog
A. Gemma – A sassy curly medium length style with a ton of bounce.
B. Theresa – A wavy medium length style with shoulder attachement so it doesn’t go through your shoulders as you move.
C. Damage Control – A super cool, extra long – falling apart inside out French braid.
