Take a Chill Pill

Chill Pill_001

Special Reminder!

In case you’ve forgotten, Wasabi Pills is having a 60 – 80% off hair sale on older hair styles. Love first told us the big news in December in her post She’s a Snowflake Sweetie. I wanted to remind you before the sale is over!

Once you get to the store, just take the teleport upstairs to a wide selection of both rigged and unrigged hair styles to choose from. I picked up the “Betty” hairstyle in the picture above in a pack of reds for just 50L. I could have picked up a full fatpack of colors for just 350L if I had wanted to! For a gorgeous style like this, you can’t even tell it’s an “older style”!

I’m not sure how much longer this sale will last. So don’t wait! Get to Wasabi Pills TODAY and shop to your heart’s content!

From hair… to dress.

I am loving the Womenstuff Hunt as you might have guessed, as I’ve already featured some of the gifts I’ve found in posts {here}, {here}, and {here}. Today I wanted to show off a pretty formal cocktail dress that I picked up for free while I was out with my usual hunting date. He picked this one up ahead of time, and alerted me to the fact that it was a beauty that I shouldn’t pass up! Just hunt down that little red t-shirt icon at S&B main-store!

We have a date for later where I plan to put this free dress from S&B to good use! Included with this dress is a color change hud and multiple sizes for your mesh body needs.

Dress colors included:

  • Red and Black (shown)
  • Blue and Black
  • Pink and Black
  • Purple and Black
  • Moss and Black
  • Charcoal and Black

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

All the Sweets

Snapshot_001

I’m still gleefully unpacking gifts from the Womenstuff Hunt. I feel like I’ve made away like a bandit this month will all the goodies! And I’ve put together a look for you with three of the gifts I found that I really like!

All the sweets…

My sweet (and exclusive) dress if from Robot dolly. It’s yours if you stop by their main-store and hunt down that little red t-shirt and buy it for 1L and it’s yours! This cutie comes in lots of mesh sizes to fit your needs.

Mesh sizes included:

  • Classic XXS – L + alpha layer
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Shoes too!

I also stopped by SoHoe Shoes where I grabbed the Kate heels as part of the Womenstuff Hunt, hunting down that little red t-shirt and buying it for 0L and discovered that they matched my cute new mini dress just perfectly. These come in fits for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and are cute as a button in pink and white.

One more stop!

I teleported over to Hot Fuss for just one more stop for the day and was rewarded with their cute free and exclusive gift for the Womenstuff hunt. I love this necklace! It has a sort of mystical boho feel with its lavender eye and silver diamond eyelashes. And for the price of free you can’t beat the deal! Pick this gift up to wear!

Queen for a Day

Queenz
Oh Hello There! Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m excited you’re here. I’m also pretty darn excited about this dress, and the little clutch I found to go with it. It’s Saturday and I’m so ready for a night out, and now I’ve something sexy to wear. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get the dress and clutch without breaking your linden bank.

Queenz

I think Pru looks like a sultry Queen in this FREE group gift dress from Queenz. It is undeniably revealing, however I think it’s equally elegant looking with the long sleeves and soft dark fabric. The gown comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud with 5 color variations. At this time the Queenz group is FREE to join making this fabulous dress absolutely FREE, all you need is group space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Swallow

The one irksome thing about most gowns, no pockets. That does however give a girl an excuse to get a matching clutch! I stumbled across this cute studded heart-shaped clutch at Swallow. It’s one of their more recent group gifts, there are several currently available. This gift includes 2 of the clutches, they are identical except one attaches to the right hand and the other to the left hand. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it really does make things so much easier. There is also a color change hud with 12 color options for the main part of the clutch, 4 color options for the hardware, and 4 options for the spiked studs. Currently the Swallow group is 40 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The animal inside.

Embrace_001

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ~ Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

The first full moon of 2018…

… was January 2nd. And I think it brought out the animal in me. Not necessarily in a bad way… but in a “I’m ready to roar into 2018” way. And when my hunting buddy told me he’d been scouting out the Sex Up Your Party Hunt, I was a bit skeptical as I heard the name of the hunt. And more skeptical when I heard what the hunt icon was that he was looking for (yes it’s very naughty!).

But if you hunt down the little pink… ahem… icon… at Artic Storm, pay just 2L for it… you’ll be rewarded with this leopard print lingerie (sexy boots included) that is sure to bring the animal out in you too. And maybe that full moon wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

Mesh bodies supported:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Petite Mort

Like all the gifts in this post, the cute “Let’s Get Baked” top by Petite Mort is a dollarbie gift at the Frost Fair. This fun holiday themed top comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, look for the gold and red gift box at the Petite Mort and buy it for 1 linden.

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

Slipper

The perfect house shoes for a day of holiday baking, these shoes are the dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Frost Fair. I really like the little details such as the stitching around the edges. This cute dollarbie is waiting for you at the Frost Fair in a pretty gold and red package at the Slipper booth. The shoes come in a few sizes, including a standard mesh size with a shoe base.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Boutique 187

This headband by Boutique 187 was just too cute to pass up. It’s the cherry on top of an already cute outfit. It isn’t often I have an excuse to wear such a cute and silly accessory. Not to mention that for just one linden, this Frost Fair gift is sure to make everyone smile. There are lots of great gifts to be had at the Frost Fair, no group needed and just 1 linden each.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m finally feeling the holiday spirit, thanks to some amazing gifts and deals. So hang on to your sleigh – we’ve got a lot to cover here!

Silver Bells

I was so thrilled when I got the notice that LeLutka was sending out their annual Spirit Tree. This year’s tree is a beauty: snowy green with big, silver decorations. And the best part is that it’s completely FREE!

Just join the LeLutka in-world group (NOT the LeLutka For Me users group) and save a copy from the notices. Or head over to the store to pick one up, if you’d rather. Lots of past group gifts are available (including FREE hair), so be sure to grab those as well, if you haven’t already done so.

The Spirit Tree is resizable with a right-click > edit > stretch. Be sure to watch your land impact, because the tree gets more “primmy” as it gets larger.

More Advent Gifts

[CIRCA] Living is hosting their 8th Annual Advent Calendar, and the gifts are really lovely!

This year’s Advent is a bit different:

  • From Dec 1 – 24, [CIRCA] will be offering a new advent item (up to 4 per day) in a numbered square.
  • This works similar to previous years except there is a new in-world group to join: [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents. It is free to join – just look for the RED group sign beside the large Advent tree on the wall.
  • You must wear your group tag (see above) to buy the contents of each square, except for the 0L surprise days. Each item will be 1L – 75L for any given day in the Advent tree. You can purchase any or all of the gifts for that day.
  • Sometimes there will be bonus squares on surprise days for an extra gift or color variation for group members, so don’t miss those.
  • On the Eve of Dec 24th, the group will be closed. Those still in the group at that time will receive the final gift on Dec 25th.

Sample items are on display in the store, and more will be displayed as the days go on. Each day’s gifts are only available for 2-3 days at a time, so don’t wait too long to check them out!

I’m showing a few [CIRCA] Advent items here (please note that not all are still available):

  • “Northern Forest” Hanging Christmas Words (over fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Holiday Garland 2a -Azure/Silver (on fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Stool – Cocoa Trees (right of fireplace)
  • “Frostine” Snowflake Gift Boxes (under tree – still available at the time of this post)

At the time of this post, days 9 – 12 are still available for purchase, including a really cute FREEBIE on day 9 (you want it, trust me).

Holiday Blues

I’m not feeling the blues, but I’m definitely wearing them! Not long ago, we welcomed I.M. Collection to the Fab Free Designer family. This made me happy because I really love their stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed, lol)!

So today I’m wearing I.M. Collection’s new gift for Fab Free group members, which includes both the dress and heels. Dress sizes include Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as a Fitmesh version. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet.

To pick up your gift, pop on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the I.M. Collection in-world store. You’ll find the Fab Free gift next to the fireplace around the corner.

P.S. If you join the I.M. Collection group for 50L, there are 12 MORE GIFTS for you to pick up, as well as one for SLF&O group members. 😀

Look at These Nails!

Look at These Nails!

Seriously, I am really loving these nails from LIVIA. And the best part is that they are a completely FREE gift for the Women Only Hunt 4.

The Snow Royale nail appliers work on Slink and Maitreya mesh hands, as well as hands that are Omega compatible, such as Vista and Tuty (Omega installer sold separately). Four different designs are included, so depending on your hands, you can wear all the same design, or different designs on each finger, as I’m doing here.

NOTE: This hunt allows decoys, and there is at least one that I found in the store. But hang in there; the “real” snowflake is not too hard to find, especially if you have the clue before you go hunting. 🙂

Snow Chains

Before I end this very long post (sorry!), I want to mention my necklace, which was an Advent calendar gift from Snowpaws. The Metal Snowflake Necklace was the gift for day 4. It is not resizeable, but you can reposition it.

Like the Advent calendars I mentioned previously HERE, Snowpaws’s calendar gifts do not expire after one day, so you can still pick up all the previous days’ gifts. There’s an interesting selection of gifts, including jewelry, accessories, and home decor items. All gifts are completely FREE, and you don’t even need to join a group! 🙂

Enjoy!

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?
