All the way to the Bahamas for Blueberry

Details to follow

People who know Zsa will be surprised to see her on the beach because they know she is one of those weirdoes who doesn’t like the sun, and who is more than happy to be seeing leaves fall off the trees and welcoming Autumn.  However, when she learned of this amazing free gift from Blueberry at Les Fest, she just had to show it to you.  This is very time limited gift, you need to get there quick – I believe it may be up till Sunday, but that is not definite.

In the pack you get 3 shirts – the dry one I am wearing, plus full wet and half wet – along with a hud to operate an integral bra top that is visible under both the wet tops.

Sizes Included:

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

Oh HoneyAna!

The always generous Truth Hawks has treated his VIP’s to not one, but two new group gifts, which are both older styles which group members voted to be updated with the new textures.  As always, both hairs come in fatpacks.  The Truth group is 350L to join but that is around the price for one colour pack of Truth general release hair, so the join fee is nothing in comparison to the value you get.  Just a hint – if you join now, there is still the previous group gift sitting in the notices!

Flip Flops!

Zsa’s high foot flip flops are one of the many group gifts currently available at ZK – the group costs 100L to join but the number of quality gifts you get far outweighs that – definitely another fabulous value group to join.

Let’s Go to the Bahamas!

And finally, the beach you see Zsa sitting on, and everything else visible, including the bag and phone, comes from the Bahama Beach House from Maya’s Buildings, for just 50L for the entire thing.  That isn’t a special price, all Maya’s Buildings items cost 50L, and this includes numerous fully furnished houses, some very large.   Absolutely amazing value, this shop is one of my favourite finds ever on Marketplace, and I probably own the whole shop now!

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth HoneyAna (group gift / 0L / 350L to join) 
Top – Blueberry Dry Shirt Les Fest (free gift / 0L / no group to join)
Jeans – Blueberry Frank, full length
Shoes:  ZK Summer Flip Flops (group gift / 0L / 100L to join)
Backdrop – Maya’s Buildings Bahama Beach House (50L for fully furnished beach house and surroundings)

A tale of Ice Cream and Kittens

FF4 v3 final

Today we find a rather glum Zsa.  I told her that if she still wanted to buy stuff on top of all the freebies and cheapies all us FabFree girls hunt down, she had to get a job.  I found her one in the local ice cream parlour, The Sugar Bowl, but she is not impressed, and spent her days day dreaming about Elvis, and trying to avoid damaging her new manicure.

At least she dressed well for her first day at her new job, and her outfit includes 2 group gifts and a dress that cost very little.

The dress…..

….. is from Bowtique and available on the marketplace for just 50L includes a 25 option texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya (with autohide)
  • Fitmesh
  • 5 fitmesh standard avatar sizes (alphas included)

The Sparkly Stuff….

…..consists of group gifts from Cae. The group is free to join, and there are other gifts to pick up including the companion necklace for this bracelet and earrings.

And finally….

…….Kitty nails!  Zsa, like the person behind the monitor, is animal obsessed (you should see her Jian folder), with a particular love of cats, bats, elephants and goats – but cats always come first.  One of many free group gifts available from Alme is a kitten manicure! The group costs 50L to join but there are frequent gifts and a wall of previous gifts to pick up.  The Alme system uses an easy hud allowing you to apply to all these systems with a click.  To pick your gifts up just put your Alme tag on, and pay the vendor 1L, which will immediately be refunded).

    • Alme
    • Belleza
    • Slink
    • Maitreya
    • Omega
    • Vista
    • Tuty’s

As you can’t see the nails very well, here is a vendor pic:

Alme Love Kittens Nails, lilac

Must dash, I need to search for another job for Zsa, I don’t think this one will last very long.  She switched the fridge off by mistake and all the ice cream melted.  Whoops.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth Thelma
Nails – Alme Love Kittens (group gift / pay 1L, immediately refunded / 50L to join) 
Dress – Bowtique Valerie
Bracelet & Earrings – Cae Northstar stud earrings and bracelet (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Backdrop – Exposeur The Sugar Bowl
Pose – Ex-Posed Cassie

Greetings from Little Havana

Greetings From Little Havana

Dear Readers,

I hope this missive finds you all well and enjoying the last days of the Summer season. Julianna has informed me that she is once again working for your Blogging team and her emails are fill to the brim with her typical giddiness. I don’t know when I’ll return to work as I am off on a walk about on the Grid. Don’t tell Juli. I found this prim seaside town recently and I’m staying a few days. Maybe do a little surfing. If you like old world, vintage charm I urge you to visit here in Little Havana.

Dress for the Occasion

Even if the occasion is a casual afternoon sight seeing. I found this well worn Tee at one of my favorite stops: Cold Ash.  The Montana Tee … yes, I know it says California on it, but it’s the Montana Tee is the latest Group Gift from Cold Ash and it’s free. Even the Group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Avi
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Now, I believe I’m going to test out those waves. Maybe see if the girls in the bikinis are playing volley ball yet…

Cheers,

Gabriel St.James

This is My Song

This is My Song

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share another of the prizes that Ripley and I discovered at the Country Music Life Hunt which is currently running over at Brii Underground.  All in all, there are 10 complete outfits awaiting discovery in the store for just 6 Linden dollars each.  Since the event runs until September 30th, there’s still plenty of time for you do do some hunting of your own.

Call Me a Pollyanna, Do

My entire outfit from the tip of my cowboy hat down to my buckled high heel boots comes all neatly packaged inside prize box #08 in the hunt.  Featuring a three quarter length knotted shirt layered over a black bra and worn denim shorts, the Pollyanna outfit will have you all set to enjoy a late summer September day in the country.  The yoke and cuffs on the top are decorated with a wild west revolver print for that added cowgirl touch.  Faded denim shorts ride low on your waist and show off a bit of skin.  The boots come with slouchy socks to keep your tootsies plenty warm.  Both the socks and the bra are added with an Omega friendly applier.  Also included, but not worn in my photo is a make up layer and black bandana.  You get everything you need for this adorable ensemble all for the low price of just six Linden dollars and the time it takes you to seek out the hunt object.  Now that’s quite a deal!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Free “Bye Summer” group hunt at Safira

FF3
Hello again FabFree’ers, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you are right now.

I have some exciting news to share today – until Wednesday the 19th, there is a “Bye Summer” hunt at the new Safira mainstore.  You do need to be a group member, but the  group is currently free to join.  You just need to head to the Safira store, which is based on the revamped Scandalize sim, and find 10 watermelons (shown below left corner of the poster below) – thankfully these aren’t tiny, so they are pretty easy to spot – even for me!  Just remember to put your Safira tag on, buy each watermelon for 0L and run home to unpack all your boxes, in which you will find these goodies:

Bye Summer hunt!!

Most of the items appear to have a couple of options included.  I am showing you the floral option of dress #4, but it also comes in the floral/white combo shown on the poster above.  Zsa is a modest little soul so was particularly pleased that this dress, which is very short, comes with an integral “C string”, which comes with a texture change hud and the option to hide it if you wish.

This cute little dress comes in the following sizes:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass

Have fun, happy hunting!

As both Safira and Scandalize are currently holding group hunts on to celebrate the revamped sim, the sim has been very busy this weekend.  For this reason, the Safira hunt has been extended to the 19th.  If you find the sim full, just keep trying, you will get in eventually.  Prior to tp’ing in, I recommend you use the “show friends only” option if you are using Firestorm, and camming rather than trying to walk when you land – unless you are particularly skilled at walking in treacle while being catapulted around on a rubber band.  Sadly, Zsa missed that class at School of SL, so she cams everywhere – well, secretly, she cams everywhere because she is just plain lazy, but don’t tell her I told you that, it’s our secret, shhhh.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Stealthic – Haven
Nails – Alme Spring Flowers – Vintage (free group gift / 0L / 50L to join)
Shoes – Essenz Mallorca
Dress – Safira – Gwen Floral (Maitreya) (free group hunt gift / 0L / free to join) (hunt extended to Wednesday Sept 19th)
Jewelry – Izzie’s Cowrie Shell necklace, bracelet and earrings
Backdrop – Exposeur – Room of Balloons

Indecisive in Sevilla

FF2

Hello again Fab Free’ers! I hope you  have had a Fabulous week, and that your weekend is off to a good start.  Ready for another free dress?  Keep reading!

Roxanna

I recently shared with you the Hilly Haalan group gift Nadia gown, here.  Today I am bringing you their other new group gift, the Roxanna dress. This dress comes in plenty of sizes and with an extensive texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

Maitreya
Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
Slink Physique & Hourglass
Fitmesh for Classic Avatar (alpha included)

Decisions, decisions

I love love love texture change huds but as an annoyingly indecisive Libran, they give me too many options to choose from and then require me to make – loud gasp – a decision!

I can honestly say that all the choices in the Roxanna hud are lovely, and all very different, both in the colour of the top and the pattern of the skirt.  Which of course made my decision even harder, but this combo kept calling to me, so one decision down.  Then I had the issue of finding the right shoes in the perfect shade, but that is another story for another day…..

Sevilla

Zsa popped to Sevilla for her shoot today, via Minimal, who have a set of 2 backdrops in today’s Saturday Sale, well worth picking up at just 70L for the two.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Murray, Demi
Nails – Alaskametro “Flowerpress” nail art
Dress – Hilly Haalan Roxanna (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Shoes – Essenz Slovakia
Bracelet – Noir Peace Bracelet
Backdrop – Minimal Sevilla (70L for Saturday Sale)

Rebel Rebel, put on your dress

Rebel Rebel

Hello Fab Free’ers!  I am really excited to share with you the first of hopefully many fantastic freebies.  I’ve read the FabFree blog daily for years and it’s a real honour to have been accepted as a FabFree blogger.  I have always loved hunting down freebies, cheapies and bargains, and will enjoy it even more now that I can share my finds with you all!

Talk to me!

Feel free to contact me if you want any more details on something I post, or just to chat, or to tell me about some awesome freebies, cheapies or bargains you think I need to know about!

Redheads should never wear green

Who says?  Honestly, this is one of those silly rules I grew up hearing.  Redheads must steer clear of wearing anything green.  Pfft.  Sometimes rules are just meant to be broken, and this is definitely one of them, and that is why Zsa is a proud to be a rebel!

Beautiful simplicity

Even though I disagree with the redhead/green rule, I am a big believer in the old adage that less is more, and this beautiful gown, one of the newest group gifts from Hilly Haalan, demonstrates this perfectly – so simple, so classy.  Hilly’s group gifts are always such a treat.  Nadia is a beautifully flowing gown that gives you an amazing silhouette, reminiscent of the movie stars of the 40’s.  As she often does, Hilly has generously given us not just one colour but a whole hud full – 15 colours in fact.  So, in effect, 15 beautiful gowns for free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Standard Large & Standard Small (alpha included)

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Hey y’all! I fear that my favorite season might really be coming to an end. Luckily, I found the perfect little outfit to wear while I enjoy every last speck of Summer, before mean old Autumn shows up and invites his even worse pal Winter along.

Lilo

Belle Epoque has put out a new free group gift and it is seriously fabulous. All of the little details make it stand out from the crowd, like the adorable little ruffles and some really great lacing on the back of the top…and other details that I don’t know the names for because I don’t know how to fashion. But they’re really cute, see? It comes in one size, which is not labeled but which fits my Maitreya body perfectly. The Belle Epoque group is 10L to join and is it worth it? You know it! Besides this, there are a handful of other must-have gifts on the wall in the store.

The Evening Just Got Curiouser and Curiouser

Curiouser and Curiouser

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a terrific Monday.  Last night, Ripley and I had quite an adventure over on the Baja Norte sim.   We were strolling along a forest path, me taking in the peaceful bird songs, and the pupster happily sniffing the trails of woodland creatures, when out of nowhere, this large white rabbit raced past, muttering something about being late.  Of course, Rip couldn’t resist temptation, and the race was on, with me trailing behind in my high heels and gown, hollering at my naughty pup, “STOP! STOP! Come back!!”  Did he listen?  Nope!  When I finally caught up to him, he lay panting on the ground next to a giant stack of storybooks.  The white rabbit that started it all?  Gone!

Ready for Wonderland

The evening had been off to an unusual start, but at least I looked like a fairy tale character myself in my lovely new gown from Virtue.  I picked it up completely for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With an off the shoulder design accented with soft pink trim, the Angel Dress will have you ready for date night, a formal dance or a trip to a fantasy land far away.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but the darker pink fabric is enhanced with sparkly golden accents.  This frock is just so elegant!  Its waistline drapes beautifully around the body, and its skirt falls gracefully to a comfortably wide hemline, where it barely whisks above the ground.  The gift package contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as popular mesh bodies, so I’m sure you’ll find a fit for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S, M, L and Vol (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • O. Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I’m hoping once Ripley catches his breath, he’ll realize it’s pointless to wait for that old rabbit to reappear, and we’ll be able to head home.  Until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!
