It’s Called Hairology, Chantal

7DS Chantal Close

Chantal

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here, I have a lot to share with you! So rather than ease into the post, I’ll just get right to the good stuff starting with this absolutely beautiful group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins. I love the look of this face on the Catwa Sofia head. Her name is Chantal and she’s the November group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The beauty marks really make the skin for me. This generous gift includes Omega body/head appliers in each of the 7 skin tones. There is also a male skin group gift available. The 7 Deadly Skins group is 225 linden to join at this time, and there are monthly group gifts.
Hairology Gifts

Hairology 2nd Anniversary Gifts

Yep, it’s anniversary time for Hairology, which of course means FREE hair. It’s hard to believe that Hairology is already 2 years old. I can still clearly recall when it was still being planned and put together. In celebration most of the Hairology participating designers have put out some pretty awesome FREE gifts. I know I picked up one from just about every booth and it’s quite possible I missed one or two. Rather than show each and every one, I decided to pick out four personal favorites. These gifts are completely FREE, no group needed, just click the Anniversary cake at each booth and pay zero linden.

  • First, the Pink Hustler gift at Hairology is the cute little knit choker Pru is wearing in each of the photos. This FREE gift comes with a color change hud allows you to change the color of the knit part of the collar, the laces, and the metal bits. Most of the colors are in the realm of pastel, but there are some bold colors as well.
  • Next, the hair pictured in the left photo is the FREE Hairology gift from RunAway. This gorgeous long hairstyle comes with a color hud that includes 9 edgy dip dyed/fade hair color options. There are 3 hair sizes for this style as well, fitted, boobs, and regular.
  • The hairstyle pictured in the top photo and the center of the second photo is the Hairology gift from Analog Dog. I love these extra long wavy braids. With this FREE gift you’ll get the Rampion hair style with 8 color huds. Each hud has several color options. Also included is a set of classic system layer hair bases, and an optional flexi add-on for the wavy ends of the braids.
  • Finally, the hair shown on the right in the above photo is the FREE gift at Hairology from Damselfly. Another long wavy style, this one is more tousled and full. This pretty hairstyle comes with a “Mixed and Faded” color hud that includes 40 (yes 40!) color options, most of which are a variation of blond, brunette, black, or red. The hair also comes in 2 sizes.

Glitter

Lastly, the cute little bodysuit Pru has on is a FREE gift from Glitter exclusively for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This kitty faced pink bodysuit with an applier hud, and classic system layers. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. All you need to do to get your copy of this cute FREE gift is head over to Glitter, make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendor.

New glasses

I added to my look by stopping by @rOrO and picking up their Third Life Gift — these “Love N Hate” Sunglasses which come in either gold of Silver. Even though my dress was gold, I opted to wear the silver glasses because I liked the contrasting looks. These are modifiable and I was able to get a nice fit with a little stretching and playing and voila! If you are not already a member, the Third Life Group is 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid. It’s well worth the 10L fee!

Limit8 but not Limited

Deer me... 1

Limit8 is a new-to-me event though it’s obviously been around a while because this month is its anniversary round with free gifts! If you join the Limit8 group (free to join) you can pick up gifts at each of the booths!

A new dress

I stopped by the Ella booth and picked up a new free dress. It only comes in a Maitreya fit, but you get two colors: Military (shown) and floral (not shown). Both are very pretty.

Shoes too!

Stop by the Dirty Princess booth for new free heels. These Darling Princess Heels in black come with gold details and you’ll get them to fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The bracelets…

I added these chevron bracelets by Bubble which were also a free gift at Limit8. Just stop by the Bubble booth to pick them up.

Deer me... 2

One last touch

I couldn’t resist adding one last touch to my outfit. I adore this free little deer bauble choker necklace by Burial. It is delicate and simple and yet very detailed. It’s simply stunning and my favorite part of this outfit. I had to show it off! Be sure to stop by the event to pick up this free giveaway!

The Wind at My Back

The Wind at My Back

There’s a cool breeze on the air as summer starts fading here at the end of August and I’m ready for September days… but I plan to enjoy these last warm breezes with some summer dresses. And I’m thrilled with the gifts that I’m finding that are letting me do just that.

A special dress

Meva has out a new group gift dress for us ladies to add to their collection of group gifts in the group gift section. The dress is Maitreya fit only but there are two colors in the package… the cream I am showing you as well as a charcoal color. The group is 100L to join, but currently there are 9 past group gifts you can pick up. So if you are new to Meva, that’s a nice little group of gifts to pick up for your group gift fee.

New hair

I stopped by the Gacha Garden as I got a notice that there are currently 61 free gifts to be had at the event! I went right away to check it out and was thrilled with the loot I came away with. I couldn’t wait to show you my favorites.

I have three just in this post, including this beautiful fatpack of hair called Eevee by Analog Dog. Find the Analog Dog gacha machine and pick up your gift by clicking the little bag. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag, but the group is free to join, making the fatpack of hair an absolutely free gift!

Maya and Teeth

An affair… with skin!

Glam Affair has a free face applier as their gift at the Gacha Garden! I was so excited to see this beautiful applier called “Maya” as their gift! It’s in the American skin tone with lovely freckles and a pretty mouth shade. It’s perfect for that girl next door look but also lovely enough for a glamorous outfit too. And since it too is a Gimme Gacha gift, it’s FREE!

She’s got teeth!

Cae’s gift had me “hooked” from the moment I unpacked it! I love their Sharkteeth necklace and earrings set! The set even includes a color change hud so you can choose between silver, brass, or gold! And like the other Gimme Gacha gifts, it’s free! 😀

Dancing… for Free Hair!

Epsilon

I’m dancing… because I found new free hair at the Freeball on the beach at Analog Dog! If you’re not familiar with the Freeball, just fly up and over the discount area to the beachy area of the sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble and buy it for 0L. Inside is free hair! Each hair contains a hud for lots of color possibilities, and there are three new styles inside to add to the three previous styles that I blogged here.

Free Hair!

This first hairstyle in the picture above is called Epsilon and is a beautiful style with a braid at the crown and long flowing locks of hair. It includes a flexi attachment at the shoulders for a soft effect if you want. I opted not to add those, as I felt the hair was pretty enough without it.

Jenna

Also in the Analog Dog Freeball is the pretty style in the picture above called Jenna. This one also has long flowing locks, but is topped off with a top-knot for a cute look that says “casual days.”

Gabby

I love this last flirty, curly hairstyle called “Gabby” that you will find in the Analog Dog Freeball. It is a one-sided curly updo. It is just plain fun! You’ll want to wear it for punk rock days, fun days, or maybe a contest!

Did you notice my lingerie?

This pretty applier lingerie is by 1 Hundred and you can pick it up free as the exclusive FabFree group member gift at 1 Hundred! Just last Friday, Pru gave us a peek at the 1 Hundred shop in her Designer Friday Showcase here, giving you all kinds of reasons to want to head over and check out the shop. I knew I had to hurry over and pick up this cute lingerie set!

It comes in:

  • System layers
  • Lolas appliers
  • Mirage appliers
  • Delicq appliers
  • Omega appliers

Everything I Wished For

Stargazing

It’s still early enough that the sun’s not quite up where I am and I can still catch a few of the stars that are out before the sunrise melts them away. Was that a falling star?! I made a wish! What will you wish for?

Everything I wished for…

… is at S@BBiA today. I got an amazing free group gift at S@BBiA yesterday and I had to share it with you so you could get it today. I’m not sure how long it will be out, so make sure you hurry! This back bow blouse with beige denim skirt is the current free group gift (the group is free to join) and it is just adorable.

The gift comes in one mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The two pieces are separate and they did include alpha layers, so I believe they would fit a system body very well also. I think they may be a very good quality fitmesh (or perhaps a Maitreya fit). The outfit might fit other bodies very well also and for the grand cost of free, who could pass up trying it out!

I’m going to catch a few more winks at the stars before they disappear completely. Happy stargazing if you go, and happy shopping!

Happy Summer

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  Look no further than the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale if you are in the market for a new swim suit!

For Just 10 Little Lindens…

You can pick up the Sage Poppy Base Set as shown on my avatar that includes the bikini top and bottom as well as the sexy sheer cover-up.  Each piece comes in XS-L mesh sizing so finding a size to fit your avatar with little body alterations shouldn’t be a problem.  The poppy print is just adorable and screamed out to me as my own real life garden poppies have just popped up to say “happy summer”!  Included in the folder is a giant HUD that allows for 20 different colours, allowing you to mix and match all three pieces if you like.

I Can See Clearly Now, The Rain Is Gone

Snapshot_013
Good morning FabFree Readers!

Look All Around, There’s Nothing But Blue Skies!

With the warm weather in my part of the real world teasing that I can trust it’s here to stay for a season or two, I have been starting to bring out little bits of my summer wardrobe in hopes that they still fit the way they should (SOBS).

In Second Life, this is all much easier of course.  Everything always fits from last year, and even if it doesn’t, I can replace it with brand new things…  for free!

Look Straight Ahead, There’s Nothing But Blue Skies (and Seniha)!

A great place to stop is Seniha, to pick up their new free group gift which is the tropical printed Dolche Dress in my favourite colour…  BLUE (because it brings out his eyes)!  This group is free to join.  The panties I am wearing today are not included. They came with my Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and if you happen to have them…  they work great with this design without interfering with the mesh.  It’s a good thing I had them on, because it may be a bright sunshiny day, but it’s breezy!

Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Have a bright, bright sunshiny day and thanks for reading FabFree!!

Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” 😉

But it’s all for a good reason: Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins, Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay! (Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty Tule and Leather Dress from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store: Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ❤

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂
