Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

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

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/30/2016 – Beloved Jewelry

Beloved JewelryHello There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and we know what that means: Fab Free Designer Friday! This weeks post is dedicated to Beloved Jewelry. I have to tell you, it’s been quite a day of blunders for me today. I actually had an entire post written and photos taken of what I thought was the Beloved Jewelry main store, only to find out that I’d been at their satellite store the whole time.  If Love hadn’t come to help me “find” the Beloved Jewelry Fab Free exclusive gift, I would have been in big trouble. My whole post would have been about the right shop, but wrong location! Needless to say, I have it all sorted out and Love probably got a good laugh!

My mishap aside, the Beloved Jewelry store is really elegantly set up with a grand desk at the entrance. On the desk you’ll find a little black box with a FREE Beloved Jewelry group gift, and a second group only vendor that will allow you to purchase a box full of previous group gifts. Just below these fantastic gifts, you’ll also see 3 group exclusive group gifts for other groups including the Fabulously Free group gift blogged previously by Astrid. Now I am getting a little ahead of myself. I got distracted by all the fabulous gifts. The Beloved Jewelry store has a wide range of gorgeous jewelry that ranges in style from casual to formal. You’ll even find some beautiful shoes to suit your formal wear needs. Most of the jewelry is for the ladies only, however the shop does have an entire section dedicated to wedding jewelry and bridal sets which of course include male sizes. If you’re looking for a gift for someone you care for, or even a gift just for yourself, you’ll want to stop through Beloved Jewelry. As you browse through the store you’ll even find specials and discounted items for shopping events. Just look closely at the signage throughout the store, everything is clearly marked.Dollarbies As you’re browsing and hopefully shopping, you may want to take note of the wall behind the front desk area. The back of that wall is where you’ll find the Beloved Jewelry dollarbie section. As you can see from the above photo there are a lot of beautiful jewelry sets to choose from in a wide range of styles.  These items are all no transfer so they aren’t meant for gifting, but rather would be a lovely and inexpensive way to treat yourself. I sincerely hope you’ll take a moment to check out Beloved Jewelry, and don’t forget to pick up all the awesome gifts while you’re there.

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Holiday Selfies

Holiday SelfiesSo after the impromptu snowball fight the other day, I bet Love thought she’d got me showing up with a Rudolph nose and antlers for the photos of the Christmas group gift from Agapee. Really, she just looks darn adorable and the photos are great. There is so much emphasis on family around the holidays that it’s good to focus on friendships too. Friends are often every bit as important as family. These adorable dresses from Agapee were a perfect opportunity for us to dress up and take some photos. Sure, matching outfits may be a little silly, but who cares, that’s half the fun! The dress is fully mesh, including the arm-warmers, and there is a color change hud to change the shirt and skirt separately. Additionally the dress comes in several size/fit options for the perfect fit. The Agapee group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE with your group tag. This dress would be perfect for a holiday outing with friends, or a casual date!

Speaking of the cute glowing red nose and matching antlers Love has on, they are a recent subscribo gift from Hopscotch. You can get this cute holiday accessory for FREE just by heading over to Hopscotch and joining their subscriber. It really is cute and is perfect for adding some holiday fun to punch up your outfit and your photos.

Additionally, I stopped back by the White Elephant Fair for this pretty manicure set with matching rings from ZOZ. The whole love of nail polish is just part of my obsession with makeup! It spans both real life and Second Life. So that you can get a better look at the gift, I included a copy of the ad photo below. You’ll find this gift from ZOZ under the big Christmas tree at the White Elephant Fair for just 1 linden. Included in this pretty present are nail appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza nails, and a right and left version of the ring.

She’s Gone Wayward

Wayward Hunt

Hi Fab Free! As you can see we are having a great time with the recently started Wayward Hunt! Not only is this hunt FREE but there are tons of amazing designers participating. Thus far I’ve been very impressed with the hunt items, so of course I had to get in on the fun of showing them off!

I love this hairstyle with the fun rainbow ends and cute top bun is the FREE Wayward Hunt prize from Blues. The hairstyle is named Beau and comes in a blond version and the brunette version shown. The rainbow colored ends are beautifully done, and they give this pretty, casual style an edgy playfulness.

This pale freckled skin with red eye-makeup and red lips is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from The Skinnery. This gift includes the skin in a dark brows option (shown) and a no brows option. Also included with this gift are appliers for the TMP body. (I used the Maitreya HUD to manually adjust my skin-tone to match the Skinnery tone)

The moment I saw this skirt on Flickr, I knew I had to have it! The skirt is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from Yumyums. It’s a fully mesh skirt and was intended to be worn with the Maitreya body. I think this vibrant floral print is perfect for the season, and the pleats are super cute.

Next, the shoes! I am a sucker for a cute pair of wedge heels. These open-toe wedges are the FREE Wayward hunt prize at Livalle (formerly L. Warwick). The shoes include version to fit Slink High, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Finally, the hanging rug with the string of lights in the background is the FREE hunt prize from Toro. The textures area really beautiful, I love the bohemian element to the style. Also, the lights can be turned off and on with just a click. I think this pretty piece would look great indoors or on a covered patio, and it’s great for photos!
