Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/26/2018 – Circa Living

Circa Living Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It seems I’d been “burning the midnight oil” where the Fab Free Designer Friday post is concerned. I really wanted to get this post out last night, but it just didn’t happen that way. My apologies for the lateness, however, I think browsing a shop like Circa Living might be a great way to spend a bit of your Saturday!

Circa Living is a shop that specializes in just about all things home related. Not to mention they have been part of Second Life almost since the beginning with 10 plus years of creating. At Circa Living you’ll find everything for inside the home from furniture to decor, and some outdoor furniture and landscaping as well. Not only can you find items for in the home and outside the home, you’ll find some houses too. One of the group gifts at Circa Living is  a skybox. I’m not sure if there is a specific style that could be attributed to Circa Living other than perhaps modern. There is such a wide range of fun and functional items to be had. There is certain to be something for everyone. There’s even a large teleporter at the entrance to Circa Living to help you get around. The same teleporter can be found as you enter the store, in the center of the circulation desk.
Circa Gifts
The Circa Living entrance leads you through a short hallway that also has info about events Circa Living is participating in on the walls. The hall leads you to the circulation desk at Circa Living, where you’ll be greeted by another teleporter, and quite a few group gifts. One such gift is the Halloween themed wreath decor which is FREE for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag! The Circa Living group has a join fee of 500 linden. Once you join the Circa Living  group you’ll have instant access to all the currently available. So whether you’re looking to spruce up your space, or you’re in the market for a new place all together, Circa Living has you covered!

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!

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).

FabFree Designer of The Day – 07/11/15 – [CIRCA]

[CIRCA] -FabFree Designer of The Day
[CIRCA] Spring Café Chair Set (free group gift / 0L / 500L to join) – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurora%20Vale/172/91/38
**Each day, here on the FabFree Blog, we will be featuring one of our Fabulously Free in SL inworld Designers.

Photos are work of the designers.


New shoes make me feel just peachy!

Well hello all you Fab readers! I’m back! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. RL took me away for far longer than anticipated, but I couldn’t stay away, even if RL has only let up a little bit. So, for the time being, I will be posting every Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the swing of things.

Now, it was lucky for me that the day I came back to FabFree was the day Pure Poison sent out a notice about having a new group gift gacha out! The gorgeous Daya pumps, that I am showing off in Brown, are available in 6 colours, with a rare animal print pattern as well. I’m sure all you loyal readers know how their gacha group gifts work, but for any new readers, or those that just aren’t familiar, let me explain. Head over to the store, and put on your Pure Poison group tag, which is free to join, and hit the blue gacha machine with the group gift sign on it. You get 1 free play for being a group member. Now, if you are not a group member, or did not get the colour you wanted from the group machine, despair not, because right beside the blue gacha is a green gacha that is L$50 per play for everyone. Everybody wins this way…and I love it! I happen to be wearing the SLink rigged version, but you also get an unrigged SLink pair, and a pair for Maitreya feet.

purepoisonalaska2

The other goodie I have to show off, is from one of my favourite stores, Alaskametro. Every month, there is a new Facebook giftie available, and while May is almost up, you still have a little bit of time to grab the May gift. In this month’s gift, you receive a whole lot of peachy goodness! There are makeup and polish huds for most head and body types you can think of, as well as tattoo layers for the makeup. The polish comes with 2 choices, a solid peach, and a polka-dotted peach, which I’m able to show you both on one hand now that I’ve updated my SLink hands which allow selecting individual nails for different colours!!! (What a great update to come back to SL to!) There are 2 lipsticks, 2 eyeshadow, and 2 blushes, all in the peach shade family. I happen to be wearing the Peach Juice lipstick, and the Peach Shimmer eyeshadow. To get this free pack of peach yumminess, head to the Alaskametro Facebook page, like it, if you haven’t already, and hit the special promotions tab. It will take you to a page which will give you a password, then head on over to the main store, stand near the gift poster, and on channel 33, say the password in chat. Example: /33 ‘password’, where ‘password’ is replaced with the actual password. Make sure you type it exactly as you saw it on the page, capital letters and all.

purepoisonalaska3

Phew! Can you tell that I’ve missed writing for all of you lovelies? If I had a word quota, I think this post would have used up several posts worth! LOL. Anywho. That is it for me for now. I will be back in a week with some more fabulous finds to show off. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Merry Crisis I mean Christmas!

Knockers Christmas 1

As Christmas creeps closer, I felt it was time to do a little decorating. Better late than not at all, right? Hehehe Right now there are several FREE gifts underneath the giant Christmas Tree at Fab Free Headquarters. Several of the gifts are perfect for those of you like me that waited until the last minute to fill your personal space with some Christmas cheer! Each of the items pictured are FREE gifts from one of the fantastic Fab Free designers.

The chair Pru is sitting in is part of the gift from Storax Tree. This cozy chair with it’s floral green fabric has a resize script and several poses, some with props! I think it looks great with the end table from CIRCA. The table has beautiful textures and is quite charming with the candle and holly on top.  I also found this cute little rug to help tie the pieces together. The detailed rug is by Dirty Little Secret. Lastly, I got this “Gemmy” Christmas tree by DDM Designs. I thought it was a great alternative to a traditional Christmas tree. It also has a resize script, I shrunk mine down quite a bit. As I mentioned before, each of these items are FREE under the Christmas Tree at FFHQ!

While out picking up these lovely home accents to decorate my little space, I took advantage of the opportunity to wear the cutest Christmas outfit I’ve ever seen! hahaha

I just love this high-waist jumper and puff-sleeved sweater by Knockers. These items are examples of their gacha items available at the Merry Crisis Gahca event. The jumper and top come in several variations, and can be worn seamlessly together or as separates. Both can be had for just $70 lindens per item per play! To go with my cute new outfit, I needed just the right pair of shoes. Don’t I always? I found these cute little ballet flats by Alaskametro on the Marketplace for just $10 lindens!

The house decorated, my outfit adorable, I took a few extra minutes to apply just one last FREE gift I picked up from under the Christmas tree at FFHQ. This super cute manicure set from HANAU. Now, I hope you enjoy all this Christmas cheer as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
