I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

Faster Pussycat!

Pussy Cat
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been to The Darkness event yet, you should go. It’s an Anniversary round and there are tons of FREE gifts to be had. Yep, I said it, FREE gifts! The Darkness event group is FREE to join. You’ll need to be wearing The Darkness group tag to pick up the gifts. Just click the gifts while wearing your group tag to receive them. Aline also showed a few of the FREE gifts available in her post “The Dark Side” so be sure to check that out also if you haven’t already!

Faster Pussycat!

I was super excited to see the FREE gift by BYRNE at The Darkness. This graphic tee shirt dress with original artwork inspired by and using images from the cult classic exploitation film “Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill” is (in my opinion) too cool for words. The top comes in a male version as well as this female version, and there are several mesh sizes.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass

In Your Eyes

Both POEMA and MRM (Milla Rasmuson Makeup) put out Catwa appliers as their FREE gift at The Darkness. These long realistic looking lashes are the gift from POEMA. The dramatic eye shadow is the catwa applier gift by MRM. The MRM gift has 8 total color variations to choose from.

*Includes Catwa Appliers Only

Fit to be Tied

Or in this case, collared and garter-ed. The fancy black choker/collar with the sparky ring in the center is the FREE gift at The Darkness from Ghee. It can be resized via touch menu. The studded leg garter with the cute heart-shaped ring is also a FREE gift at The Darkness. It comes from TSL (The Style Loft) and has a left and a right version to be worn on the left or on the right leg.

She’s got the look!

Rawr_001

“Heavenly bound
Cause heaven’s got a number
When she’s spinning me around
Kissing is a color
Her loving is a wild dog
She’s got the look”

Get the look too!

You can get the look for free! I have some special gifts to list off to you starting with some sweet deals at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Right now the group join fee is free (I’m not sure how much longer this promotion will last, so hurry!). For the month of January, your group gift is 400L in-store credit! Just go to the credit terminal with your group tag on and click it to get your credit to go towards any purchase!

Don’t forget that 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a nice assortment of lucky letter boards, mini mania boards, and midnight mania boards accessible to group members. While I was there picking up my free 400L store credit, my letter came up on one of the lucky boards, and I got the Vyra skin for free! It includes the face and body Omega appliers in a full fatpack of skintones! I was thrilled with this free beautiful skin pictured above.

More free stuff…

Byrne has out their free goodies for January as well and RAWR are they gorgeous! I picked up the Jungle Queen dress in the group notices (or you can pick it up at the main-store) and the subscriber sent me the matching gloves. The dress and gloves both come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza to fit your mesh body needs.

Getting ready…

Winter parties will soon be starting. All those invitations will be going out for the get togethers at different friends’ houses. I knew I needed the perfect dress to spark conversation. I can usually find what I’m looking for at Byrne! Their POE gift was no exception and I fell in love with this combination dress and mesh fur stole.

The dress has side cut outs to make it just a bit risky, while the white fur stole adds a bit of class. And of course since this is a POE Hunt gift, you can pick it up free by going to Byrne and hunting down the globe.

Dress sizes available:

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

November Rain

Drip_001

Drip… drip… drip… you can almost hear the rain falling on the rooftops of the city. The lake nearby washes up against the sandy shores and the birds flock in for bread crumbs now that it’s turning cold. Burn baby burn.

Or Byrne.

Because Byrne Style has put out one hot number of a free group gift. Pick up this Drippy Tunic dress as the free November group gift with your Byrne group tag and you won’t notice the November cold. It comes in two colors: white (shown) and silver (not shown). You also get the standard mesh body sizes: Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.

A bonus.

While your at the main-store be sure to hit the subscriber and pick up the free subscriber gift, because it is just as nice. And bring a fella along, because there is a group gift out for the guys too. They just need to don the group tag.

And let that November rain fall. I’m ready.

Hi Fab Free’rs! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was good, and I’m ready to take on this week. September has just barely started and already there are some awesome September group gifts available. Byrne, Empire, and 7 Deadly Skins all have gorgeous gifts out, and I am excited I have the opportunity to share them with you.

Byrne

I’ve said it before, and I will go on saying it, I am always impressed by the textures used in the Byrne clothing items. This lovely dress is the FREE September group gift from Byrne. The blue and white star pattern reminds me of kaleidoscopes and stained glass windows. The Byrne Style group is FREE to join. There’s also a group gift for the guys in the notices.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

7 Deadly Skins

This pretty face is the September group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The skin is named Cicely and with it you get 2 Omega appliers that work for Omega compatible mesh heads and bodies. One has brows, and the other does not. Also included is a Cicely shape, and a brow shape meant for lelutka heads. The 7 Deadly Skins group is currently 225 linden to join.

Empire

These adorable shoes are the September group gift at Empire. The shoes include a detailed color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the shoe, as well as the metal parts. There are 20 color options for the main parts of the shoes, 3 metal options, and 8 options for the bottom of the sole. The Empire group is 500 linden to join. There are also several previous group gifts still available.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Crusin’ the Strip

Crusin' the Strip

Driving the loop….

Back in the day, when malls were a thing and we all wanted out lives to be straight out of 16 Candles or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, my weekends were spent cruising up and down the strip, honking and waving at the same cars over and over. We’d occasionally pull over at one of our turn around points, the McDonalds at either end of town and show off our rides and wave and catcall at the pretty girls that would drive past. Oh, to be that age again….

A Leaning Look…

My outfit today does take me back a bit to yesteryear. The Kase Men’s Jeans, a FREE group gift at [ASHBURY] lends itself to the day when patches over your ripped jeans were the thing and not just more rips. The Ashbury group is FREE to join. {Get Frocked} also has a FREE gift for it’s members. The collared Purple Shirt projects that you care about your appearance while trying to attract the birds that fly by (often way too quickly). The Get Frocked group is also FREE to join. My last gift is totally FREE with no group to join. You can find the Lee Boots on the display floor (away from the group gifts) at BYRNE as a FREE gift to all.

Hey, looks like that car is coming by for a second look….   /me runs his fingers through his hair and stands real cool…

Space Blossom

Space Blossom

Moolto Magic…

When I picked up the group gift at BYRNE that Love and I showed [HERE], I couldn’t help but see that the store was taking part in the Moolto Spring Fling Hunt. This is a FREE hunt, meaning all the gifts are FREE to pick up, but you must join the Moolto Group, which is also FREE and wear the Moolto magic glasses while completing the hunt.

Star Child…

The hunt gift at BYRNE is the Space Blossom Outfit. Wearing this shirt and pants outfit will most definitely get you noticed. The shirt vest combo comes in both grass and petal (shown) colors that will make you “pop” in every room you walk into. The Moolto Spring Fling Hunt runs all through May.
