Stars and Stripes and Flowers

Happy Independence Day to our fabulous readers in the U.S.A.!

I’m just popping in to show you this cute dress from Entice. The Pollyanna Flower – Patriot dress was set out as a free 4th of July gift for group members. It has a bit of a sexy cut under the arms and comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Just for grins, I added the cute handheld star, which is a free gift to all from West End. The Patriot’s Star comes in 2 versions and includes some fun bento animations. It will surely be a festive addition to your 4th of July outfit. 🙂

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

It’s Called Vitiligo

Love Your Skin

Happy July 4th to all who celebrate! I’m always excited to share new freebies with my Fab Free family, however I’m extra excited about the most recent subscriber gift from E. Vary. I’ve also come across some fun patriotic items from #bubbles and KC Couture to help get into the spirit of the day while still looking fabulous!Love Your Skin 2I have been so eager to show this gorgeous “Winnie” skin from E. Vary since I found out about it! For those of you who aren’t sure what this skin is about, the skin condition is called Vitiligo which causes skin cells to lose their pigmentation creating these random patches of pigment-less skin. The name “Winnie” is inspired by the real life model Winnie Harlow whom is a high fashion model with Vitiligo. The purpose of this truly striking skin is to raise awareness of the condition and promote a positive image. You’ll find this FREE subscriber gift at the E. Vary main location. Just join the subscriber, if you haven’t already, then click the vendor photo. In the package you’ll find the Winnie skin in 3 tones. There is a system skin layer in each tone, 2 hair base options, 4 shapes, an Omega applier for Catwa, Slink, Eve, and other Omega compatible heads, as well as an Omega body applier in each skin-tone. Don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift from E. Vary!

Now I couldn’t very well let the 4th of July pass by without a fun patriotic look. This super cute wrap top is on sale for a limited time at #bubbles for just 49 lindens. If the U.S. flag doesn’t do it for ya, not to worry, there’s are solid red, white, or blue options available as well! Each version of this cute mesh top includes standard mesh sizes, fit mesh,  as well as fit sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. I think this top from #bubbles is the perfect style top for a fun day in the sun on this summer holiday.

To match my cute top from #bubbles I continued with my patriotic theme and added these detailed wedge sandals from KC Couture. After all, how often do you get to pull off red white and blue?! These FREE gift shoes are available just outside the KC Couture main store, at the landing point. You can’t miss the giant vendor board, you’ll also see a cool pair of men’s chucks available.  To get these too cute shoes, you’ll need to join the KC Couture group, which is FREE to join. Once wearing your tag, just click the vendor and the shoes are yours. The package includes a Maitreya fit, Slink fit, Eve Fit, Belleza fit, and TMP fit shoes. I really cannot express how cute these shoes are on, not to mention it’s not often I find a FREE shoe gift with all  these fit options!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

One of the things I like the most about Second Life is the ability to change your appearance at will. Today I was feeling a little bit more sinister, a little more goth than usual. Thankfully I’ve come across a few items that let me show off that darker side without breaking the bank. Now I get to share them with you!

It all started with this fun little “in store” hunt going on at FormaNails. I say “in store” but really, all the hunt objects are hidden outside on the grounds surrounding the store. Before I get into the hunt prize, I want to tell you a little about the hunt its self. I really enjoyed this one. Outside the FormaNails main shop you’ll see a small display where you can get a FREE hud. This hud needs to be worn with permissions granted to complete the hunt. There are 10 hidden objects to be found throughout the grounds. The hud I mentioned keeps track of which items you have found and which ones you’re still hunting for. Cool, huh?! The objects themselves will teleport to a new location once they’ve been “found”. So you may come across the same object a second time. Once the hud shows you’ve found all 10 objects, you return to the display outside the main store and click inside the phone booth. Then the folder with the hunt prize will be delivered to you. I have to say, what made this hunt so fun is that the grounds are really whimsical and interesting to explore. There are lots of imaginative things to do and see, I even bungee jumped while hunting!

The FormaNails FREE hunt gift is a set of bejeweled brass knuckles. The detailed set is unisex in that it includes a male and a female version, also both sets come in gold, and in silver. The female version is set with little rubies and pearls, while the male set has iron crosses and skulls. The knuckles are worn on one hand, and are able to be sized via touch menu. Though the knuckles did not appear to have been made to fit a specific set of hands, I was able to adjust them to suit my Maitreya Lara hands with some re-sizing and some manual re-positioning. After seeing the knuckles from FormaNails,  knew I wanted to do something a little bit goth and perhaps playful, then I saw one of the gifts from a shop called This is Wrong and knew exactly the look I was going for.

This lace neck corset by This is Wrong is really beautiful on. It comes in 3 colors for the boning, black, green, and red, each with black lace. This FREE gift fit my Maitreya Lara body without any adjustments, which was a pleasant finding. The group for This is Wrong is FREE to join as well, making this lovely gift absolutely FREE. Wear your group tag and purchase the item for zero lindens. There are also several other cute group gifts to be had at This is Wrong, don’t miss out!

Next, just the right the finishing touch! Stix is participating in The Sinister Goth’s “Sinner’s Hunt Gluttony”. This is a FREE hunt, and there are no groups or huds needed. The FREE hunt prize Stix has out is this hauntingly beautiful eye makeup set. The gift includes 5 variations of this wild smoky eye. Each version has an Omega applier, and a matching classic system layer. I tried on all 5 versions, and they are a must have for any goth girl, even if you’re only goth part of the time like me!

Here are the details, have fun, and Enjoy!

Entice at the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Event

Red White Blue

Hello There Fab Free! I have some special items to share with you today, that I’m sincerely excited about. Everyone knows I am a shopaholic, sales, gifts, and awesome deals are always exciting. However, when I can combine my love of bargain shopping with the ability to contribute to a noble cause, I am beyond excited!

Creations for Parkinson’s Research is having a Red White and Blue themed event where we can all do just that. Entice is one of several designers participating in this event with exclusive items and a hunt item that will donate 100% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research via the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Some items will also send 50% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research. Seriously, if that’s not Fabulous I don’t know what is! To go along with my Fantastic finds at the Creations for Parkinson’s event, I also picked up the FREE June group gift from Empire, which does not disappoint!

Going back to the Creations for Parkinson’s Research items from Entice, the red, white, and blue maxi dress pictured to the left is the event exclusive. This lovely summer dress is just 50 lindens and all of the proceeds from purchasing this dress will benefit Parkinson’s research. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes alpha layers, there’s definitely something to fit just about any size and shape. I paired it with these chunky flats from REIGN and I think it’s adorable on! The second dress, also from Entice pictured in the center is the 10 linden hunt item. This fun little party dress also comes in several mesh sizes for easy fitting. The proceeds from this cute dress also go toward Parkinson’s research.

**Please note that the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Red, White, and Blue event ends June 6th.

With two new dresses in hand, the allure of FREE shoes at Empire was irresistible! The June group gift at Empire is this pair of delicate slide-on heels with full color change hud. These are super pretty, and just the right type of heel that can be worn with both casual and dressy attire. The Empire VIP group does have a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however you will have instant access to the current and past group gifts upon joining. Just don’t forget to wear the group tag! The group gift includes shoes fitted for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Weekend Sale at House of Darcy!

Get PiercedHello There Fab Free’rs! I’m certain you’ve noticed what this post is about without reading a word. Piercings. This weekend only House of Darcy has lowered their VIP group join fee to just 50 lindens, and all individual items are marked down to 50 lindens each. House of Darcy is known for their detailed, intense piercing sets. Needless to say I was thrilled to hear about this sale and discounted entry into their VIP group.

I went through the shop wearing my House of Darcy group tag and picked up no less than 12 past and current FREE group gifts and exclusives. The VIP exclusive items that are separate from the VIP gifts are also FREE for this weekend only. Essentially that means I paid the one time fee of 50 lindens and was able to pick up 12 detailed piercing sets at no additional cost. The 5 above pictured piercing sets are just a sample. I do want to mention that some of these gifts are older, so don’t expect to see appliers. At least one set also includes classic tattoo layers to enhance the piercings. Each gift includes the full piercing set in several colors. I had to manually adjust the size and location of the individual parts to each piercing to fit my mesh face and body. Additionally the piercings that have two sections, such as chest and face, can be worn separately as well as together. Before I forget, many of the gifts are either unisex, or include a male and female version!
Henna MoonLastly, after picking up all the awesome FREE VIP Gifts at House of Darcy, I couldn’t resist this henna style tattoo for just 50 lindens. This back piece does include an Omega applier as well as the classic system tatoo layer. I think this stylized crescent moon is just pretty enough to look good with a more feminine appearance, but masculine enough to be worn by someone more rugged. There’s roughly one day left for this amazing sale, so don’t hesitate to run over to House of Darcy and join their VIP group before the sale ends and their join fee goes back up on Monday.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Keeping it Lowkey

Tunic Hello Hello Fab Free’rs Thanks for stopping by! Today I have what I think is a super cute look inspired by this gorgeous paisley tunic from Lowkey Shawty I stumbled across on the Marketplace. It also includes today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer from REIGN, so I want to make this post short and sweet. Additionally there’s a new event in Second Life called Addicted to Black. The name of the event makes the theme pretty self explanatory. My goth side is squealing with delight over this event. I stopped by and was happy to find a few FREE gifts, a necklace from Indulge Temptation, and a piercing from CS Tattoo.
Tunic Close I sincerely love this tunic from Lowkey Shawty. Paisleys are a guilty pleasure of mine, and it’s not often you see a good paisley pattern. I love the colors of this top, it’s bright and beautiful without being garish. It’s also long enough that you could wear it without the leggings, and honestly it would be just as cute with shorts or a skirt. The tunic is just 10 lindens on the Marketplace, and you’ll get several mesh sizes.

The shoes, the shoes, I love these platforms too, they kind of make the outfit. These platform sandals are today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer at REIGN. The shoes are just 50 lindens for today only. In the package you’ll get a different fit for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP feet, along with a color change hud with 20 color options.

Speaking of gorgeous, my photo really doesn’t do this roped bead necklace from Indulge Temptation justice. These black seed beads have an iridescent quality. The set I am wearing appears to reflect a pretty red hue from the black beads. This FREE gift at Addicted to Black also includes 2 other versions of this necklace, one with a blue hue, and one with a regular white light hue.

Also FREE at the Addicted to Black event is this horseshoe lip piercing from CS Tattoo. Sometimes I really like just a simple piercing rather than some of the more intense ones that are often seen in Second Life. This black metal piercing can be sized via touch menu. I also want to note, that the piercing did not fit my avatar initially. I think it’s intended to be unisex. However, I had no trouble re-positioning it and using the touch menu to size it down a little.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

Free Gifts at The Instruments!

The Instruments

Hello Hello Fab Free! I’ve missed you!! It’s great to be back. On this lovely Friday I have lots of FREE gifts to show you from the current round of The Instruments. The Instruments event is celebrating an anniversary this month, so most of the participating designers have set out FREE gifts to help celebrate.  So of course, there are some that I just had to show you, starting with this dress!

I’m not sure which part of this dress from Two Foxes I like best, the cute little collar and sleeve cuffs, or the mandala-like pattern in the material. This FREE dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer so anyone can wear it. You can pick up this pretty knee-length fitted dress at the Two Foxes booth at The Instruments. Do not wait too long however, this round ends May 25th.

The Instruments Close

Also at this anniversary round of The Instruments, this detailed clutch from Yeliz. The clutch is also FREE, and it includes a color change hud that allows you to adjust the color of the purse, and the hardware separately. There are enough color options that this handbag will match almost anything. Lastly, how could you not notice this gorgeous nude lip color from JUMO. As their FREE gift, JUMO set out a pretty set of high-gloss lip colors you’ll love. The colors range from bright reds and pinks to this lovely nude shade shown. This gift includes regular tattoo layers, as well as appliers for Catwa and TMP heads.

Stepping Outside the Box

Hello FabFree! I decided to step outside the box a little today!

Stepping Out

I admit that I really love the “hippie” look. And the latest FREE group gift from EvelineInTheBox had me beboppin’ to the main-store to snatch it up. I was feeling the flower power on this one! I love this dress! It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The group is FREE to join, making this dress totally FREE! It’s a groovy deal!

Stepping Out 2

To add to my “flower power” look I picked up the Flower Parure Jewelry Set from Miss Jewell for just 1L! It is their gift for the May Flower Hunt. It includes a nifty necklace plus matching earrings and the lip cuff. And I love that it matched my dress!
