Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

Summer at Otter Lake

Summer at Otter Lake

Hello Fab Free, happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have been aching for some sunshine and adventure. A few days enjoying the sights and sounds of a coastal town or a lakeside retreat sound heavenly. So I think that’s just what I’ll do! Time to pack up the doggos, throw on something casual and cute, and hit the road.

For this post I picked up a few essentials for my adventure. The scooter complete with the picnic basket full of adorable puppies by 777, as well as my floral bikini and shorts. They are both from Safira. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get all three without breaking the bank. Credits will be at the end like always.

777

This scooter is so detailed, and it is ridable! It comes with a camera hud, and there are tons of options in the scooter’s touch menu. The best part in my opinion? You can have a passenger! That’s right, you don’t have to cruise alone if you don’t want to. There are so many choices for customizing how you ride, as well as fun features like a horn and lights. I could spend this entire post talking about them. I won’t, instead I’ll let you discover them for yourself. This scooter by 777 is just 10 linden on the Marketplace.

Safira 

Safira has so many group gifts it’s almost difficult to keep up with! Not a bad problem to have if you ask me. Their most recent group gift happens to be these summery floral shorts. The shorts come in several sizes and have a texture change hud with 3 equally pretty floral choices, as well as options for the metal bits. Also at Saifra, my bikini top is the top half of an adorable tropical print bikini that is one of the many Safira Lucky Board prizes. The Safira group has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Shorts Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Pink Pru Bunny

Pink Pru Bunny

I think everyone should know that I am seriously considering spending the rest of April in this pink bunny suit. Hello there Fab Free’rs! We are inching toward Easter, which in my opinion yields some of the best holiday candy of all the holidays; second only to Halloween.

Speaking of candy, Andika sent out this sweet pastel striped lollipop out in their notices not too long ago. It has a bento hold pose and the Andika group is free to join. As for my bunny suit, yes, it is every bit as comfortable as it looks. It’s also a free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by Tiar, and it happens to be unisex. The suit comes in blue, and pink with standard mesh sizes for each color. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. The very best part of this blotd (bunny look of the day) are these absolutely adorable socks. They are the Evil Bunny Hunt prize at Atlantis Design. I love the cute bunny face on the top of the socks almost as much as I love the bunny foot prints on the underside. I don’t think my feet have ever been this cute. Happy Hunting!

Bunny Suit Unisex Sizes: Standard Mesh + Alpha Layer

Sock Sizes: Classic (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Belleza (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Slink (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Maitreya (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged)

Cheesecake Radio

Cheesecake Radio

Music makes everything better, even cheesecake. 

Hello hello Fab Free, and thank you for being here. Have you checked out the Fab Free Group Gift listing lately? There are so many recent gifts, if it’s been a minute since you checked it out it might be time to give it a look. I picked up this comfy colorful tunic at Northern Sky Creations for free with my Fab Free group tag. Casual look handled, today feels like a lazy indulgent sort of day. The kind of day that requires cheesecake. Andika has this almost too pretty to eat cheesecake as their most recent group gift. I’ll tell you all about each of these free gifts, and list full credits at the end while I listen to some music.

Northern Sky Creations 

This loose flowy tunic is a free gift at Northern Sky Creations for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. As I am sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join. This colorful top comes in several sizes and has an alpha layer to make it suitable for non-mesh avatars, and we love that.

Sizes Included: Fitmesh (s-L) + Alpha Layer, Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Venus, Freya), Fitmesh Voluptuous, Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Andika

Cheesecake has to be my favorite of all the sweet things. Andika has this beautiful, deliciously detailed NY Cheesecake Dispenser Set as a free group gift. The Andika group is also free to join at this time. This set comes with 2 plated cheesecake dispensers, a decorative cake, and a set of decorative plates for a mouth-watering table setting. The dispensers give out a held plate with a slice of cheesecake, and an animated fork. I’ve added the ad for this set below so you can see the additional pieces of this gift that are not included in my photo.

Let’s do Brunch

Brunch

Hello Fab Free! Two things I thoroughly enjoy are brunch, and freebies. So for this post I decided to combine the two. I picked up a new group gift tattoo by Carol G, and the Fab Free group gift at Revelation. Also, the Carol G group changed, and is free to join for a very limited time, so sit back, enjoy some waffles, and read on. Credits will, as always, be listed at the end.

Carol G

You may have read or heard that Carol G made a new store group recently. Carol G has also stated that the new group will be free to join for a L I M I T E D time to give everyone enough time to switch from the original group to the new one. You know what that means? You got it, free group gifts with no join fees! The upper body tattoo I am wearing is a recent group gift that can be found at the Carol G shop located on the Scandalize sim only. This gift will not be available at the Carol G main store. Also, it can be worn by mesh and classic non-mesh avatars!

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic Tattoo Layers, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Omega Applier, Legacy Applier, Maitreya Applier

Revelation

Have you checked out the Fab Free Group Gift List lately? If you haven’t, you need to. There’s a ton of fabulous new gifts in there! I picked up this ruffled top and skirt outfit at Revelation for free with my Fab Free group tag. This free outfit comes in several sizes, and has a color/texture change hud that lets you customize different parts of the top and skirt. The skirt has solid color options, and a few cute patterns, while the top has solid color choices only. To get your free outfit head over to Revelation and look for the “Group Gift” wall that has several packages set out in front of it. The black/dark grey package in the front row is the Fab Free gift, just click it while wearing your Fab Free tag and the outfit will be sent to you.

Be Mine Valentine

Be Mine Valentine

Valentine’s Day what? Hey Fab Free, who says you gotta wait for Valentine’s Day for some romance? I say why not take advantage of all the sexy and romantic Valentine’s Day themed freebies and cheapies out there and make some memories. This saucy heart printed nighty is the February group gift at Chic Moda. I also picked up this sweet Valentine’s themed champagne bucket set by Follow Us on the Marketplace. After all, what would a romantic evening be without a little bubbly? Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and you can peep the credits at the end.

Chic Moda

I think this little nighty by Chic Moda is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. It also happens to be a recent group gift. I love the little red hearts. They are perfect for the up-coming holiday. This sultry little number comes in multiple sizes, and has a hud that allows you to hide or show the built in panties. The Chic Moda has a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy

Follow Us

Champagne is almost mandatory for Valentines Day. This set by Follow Us is just 29 linden on the Marketplace for a limited time. I especially like that this champagne bucket has The Beatles lyrics “All you need is love, Love is all you need” scrawled across it in pretty lettering. The bucket is not only decorative, it acts as a dispenser as well. The glasses have an animated hold pose. Also, there are rez-able decorative glasses. Pick yours up on the Marketplace while this great price is still available.
