Hello Fab Free, I hope all of you whom experience changing the clocks back are surviving the adjustment. It can be wild how much difference just one hour makes. As for me, I found myself indulging in the latest group gift at MINIMAL, and enjoying the furniture and décor set Petite Mort has at Gacha Garden. Retail therapy really can help, even with the grogginess of a post time change haze. That’s my story anyway. Keep reading for all the “wheres” and “hows” or scroll to the end for the full credits. Thanks Fab Free’rs!

MINIMAL 

I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with this new group gift backdrop by MINIMAL. It has a sea-side villa vibe that sets it apart from a lot of the similar backdrops I’ve seen. It also sits high off the ground which gives it the feel of being part of some ancient hilltop villa. To get your copy of this beautiful backdrop you’ll need to join the MINIMAL group. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Sanctuary


Sanctuary

Welcome to my sanctuary, also known as the most recent group gift at MINIMAL. This backdrop by MINIMAL is not only gorgeous, it is free to all MINIMAL group members. It comes in 2 versions; one with side door openings like shown, and one with out. The MINIMLAL group is 50 linden to join.

Also, the sweet little dress I’m wearing is the free July group gift at WellMade. It has a color/texture change hud that lets you pick from 7 solid pastel colors for the top, and 7 watercolor-like floral prints for the skirt. Currently the WellMade group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. Don’t have group space? You can also pick this gift up on the Marketplace for 1 linden.

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

Peek-a-Boo

Peek-a-boo

Hello again FabFree’ers! I hope your weekend was wonderful and that your Monday is good as any Monday can possibly be!  I am excited to be starting another week of freebie and offer hunting for you all.

Oh Carolina!

Today I am sharing an item that is still out for 55L Thursday, and likely to be so for another couple of days but even so, if you want it, you shouldn’t delay.

Virtue is one of my favourite places to go for classy, ladylike, well made items of clothing, and this top does not disappoint.  It is a brand new release and comes in a variety of shades, and this white colour is on offer for just 55L.  I love the little ties at the wrist, the length is just right and I was able to wear it over many different bottoms without any bleed through – which is a real bonus as far as I am concerned – I love versatile pieces I can wear with lots of different wardrobe staples.

It comes in a humongous list of  sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
  • Slink Physique
  • Large, medium and small for Classic Avatar (alpha included)
  • Tonic fine and curvy
  • Ocacin & Ocacin Voluptuous

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Bonbon Mina
Top – Virtue Carolina (55L Thursday)
Leggings – Neve, Deedee, poetry
Shoes – Phedora Sorcha Flats
Pose – Foxcity Autumn
Background – part of Maya’s Autumn House

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

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)

Drama, Drama, Drama!

Love Me Lingerie_001

Drama!

Drama, drama, drama! That’s what these amazing backdrops from Kraftwork make me think of! I got them as a group gift by stopping by the store. There are currently two set out and each has a hud to change it to three different colors. One includes this chair and a posing stand! They even have the lights that filter through.

These are great if you are a second life photographer or just want to snap some photos. The Kraftwork group is a mere 25L to join and you can pick up these great backdrops yourself!

A little love…

I have a little love left over from February! I stopped by Elegance Boutique and discovered that they had out a lovely lingerie set for free with your free group join. It’s two pieces with the undies and the top and has cute details like the heart pasties. It comes in several mesh body sizes. I’m showing off the Maitreya size.
