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.

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.

Snapshot_004
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Carson and I are stopping by to share news with you about the latest group gift at Byrne, and the reason we are both here is because the free group gifts for May for men and women match so nicely I wanted to show them together.  When I told him there was a blue lagoon and some sugar involved he was happy to oblige 🙂

The Byrne inworld group is free to join.

For The Ladies…

The ladies gift for May includes the mesh Evie Dress as shown below for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza in the two colours as shown below.  This simple spaghetti strap dress design is beautifully textured in a tropical flower print, giving this dress high head turning possibilities!

(BYRNE) EvieDressAD-MayGroupGift

For The Men…

Guys can pick up the mesh Evan Shorts in the same two cool colours of purple and blue.  Now Carson is looking all hunky with NO shirt on, but I think it would also look very nice with a blue or purple coloured T-Shirt or polo if your man simply “must” wear a shirt.

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Creepy Steamy

Give Me Steam_001

Feeling Creepy?

Or are you feeling Steamy? I think this look is a cross between dark burlesque and creepy steampunk and I really like it. I managed to put it together for free with some pieces from various gifts that you can grab up if you hurry. All the offers expire in the next three days (March 31st). So don’t wait.

First up, grab my burlesque corset from BYRNE as the free March Subscribo gift. You’ll get both a copper (shown) and purple (not shown) color in your gift box. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus you’ll also get popular mesh body sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. While you are at BYRNE, be sure to pick up the free group gift (the group is free to join). It was really nice as well.

Steam on!

I paired my new corset with a pair of outstanding Steampunk boots from the Steam XII Hunt. These boots were free as part of the hunt, and I found them with just a bit of searching at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They are unrigged mesh, and made to fit standard bodies as well as all the major mesh body types. I got them to fit my Maitreya body perfectly just by hiding my feet! The detailing on them of the gears, straps, and buckles is amazing, and they matched the Corset just perfectly.

Carnival touches…

I really liked the lucky dip this week at PA Designe and couldn’t help but try my chances at it. Luckily I landed the scull nose chain and earring. It’s all one piece for easy fitting. When I attached it, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t require any editing at all to get it to fit to my Catwa Head. This item is completely free if you are lucky on your dip in the bucket. Take a chance on this skull inspired jewelry piece!

Singin’ My Heart Out

Byrne

Lala and Lace

I thought I’d give singing a try… I do know both kinds of music, Country AND Western…. While I’m singing (screeching) my way to the Grand Ol’ Opry, let me tell you about what I’m wearing. I discovered Byrne has a new group gift out. The LalaLace Mens Pants are FREE to group members and The group is FREE to join.  The pants come in both black and white designs and in sizes XS-XL. Past group gifts are also out for a small price. I picked up the Victor Coat for just $60L and the Miller Boots for $50L.

I’ve got a heart on…

…my guitar. The THUNK!  Valentine Guitar is a FREE gift at the Shop Your Heart Out Event. It is adjustable to fit and comes with animations so you can play like a pro. Now if I could just sing like a pro instead of sounding like a wounded cat…

A Vintage Stroll

Vintage_001

It’s not cold everywhere.

There are still parts of this world that have warm weather… and I decided to take a warmer weather stroll. I was missing flowers and sunshine amidst all the snow. I found a garden sim with roses, vintage bikes and vases, and took a walk in my brand new January gift from BYRNE. You’ll definitely want to pick this one up. The group is free to join and the gift is free too. You’ll get the jacket and the skirt (two separate pieces) and quality alphas to go with them.

Sizes Included:

  • The Jacket: standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • The Skirt: Fitmesh XS – XL, as well as a Maitreya fit

Vintage_002

A finishing touch.

Chop Zuey has generously set out a gift just for FabFree group members. Since the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join, this gift is free as well, and it matched my new dress from BYRNE just perfectly. So I stopped by Chop Zuey to pick up the Love Knot Set. It includes the beautiful heart choker necklace shown above as well as a pair of matching earrings that are hidden in my hair. These are easily resizable to fit any avatar. You’ll find this gift where the other Chop Zuey gifts are.
