Equally exciting is opening a gift that turns out to be an oh so cute new hair style! This is “Cookie” from eXxEsS and you can find it for free over at the Cosmo round.

Mermaids & Donuts

Mermaids & Donuts

I’m back at the beach today, dear readers!  This time, in an oversized donut, and feeling slightly mermaidy again!  Well, donuts and mermaids are pretty awesome in general, so I’m good with it.  Bring on the good vibes, because this weekend is exactly what I needed!

Back to Cosmo

Cosmo’s anniversary celebration (part two) is raging on, and I found a few more cute things I wanted to show off.  This oh-so-appealing bikini by Safira will have you using a fork as a comb before you can say “The Little Mermaid”.  It’s so pretty!  I accessorized with this very lovely layered necklace by Supernatural, and I think it gives just the right amount of sparkle.  To get these gifts (and piles of others), just join the Cosmopolitan group for free and click on the boxes at each stall.  You’ve got until May 28th to visit!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

Kinda wish this was a real donut right now, not gonna lie!

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time…

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time...

Hey Fab Fam, I know it’s another Monday but I hope it’s a good one for you. My Monday hasn’t been bad at all because I popped over to the 10th Anniversary round of Cosmopolitan. And what made it so good, you may ask.  All the free anniversary gifts set out for us! Most every Designer has set out a lovely little free gift to celebrate. In fact, I was able to put together this entire outfit, from head to toe with nothing but free gifts!

First is this lovely dress. This is ‘Candra – gris’ from Avale and just look at the way it drapes and flows! The color is a deep navy (maybe) but comes across more as a dusty black. But “gris” does mean “gray” so… There is a HUD to change up the color but it only changes the top not the skirt. Just my personal preference but I liked the matching pieces best.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Kalhene – Erika
  • Kupra – Original
  • Legacy
  • Maitrya
  • SLink – Hourglass

My shoes are the Nives Sandals from G & D. You get a full fatpack with these cuties! So it was easy to match them to my new dress. I just love it when that happens.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Even my new hair style is a free gift! This is the ‘Coral’ style from eXxEsS. You get the full fat pack of colors here too. I love the swoopy bangs and the little buns. Such a playful yet sophisticated style.

And last but not least is my demur pose from LW Poses. The ‘Anniversary Gift’ pose comes with a pose ball and they animation as well as the pretty flowers to hold.

Cosmopolitan has got us covered for gifts! And this is just part 1 of a 2 part celebration! I see loads more gifts in our future!

Here I Go Again

Here I Go Again
Happy Friday FabFree! I’m super excited for another weekend. To celebrate I’ve…gotten dressed! And naturally when I get dressed there are some freebies and bargains to be had!

Free

A new round of Cosmopolitan started on April 4th, so I, being the responsible freebie blogger that I am, scampered over to see if there were new freebies out. If you’re not familiar with this event, there are always two easels right when you walk in on either side of the doors that hold a freebie each. All you have to do is join the free event group and snatch up each free gift. This round, one of the free gifts is this fantastic skirt. It’s seriously so well made and versatile. There is a HUD of colors that lets you change the skirt, belt, details, and pockets all independently of each other and sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Be sure to grab yours before the round ends!

Sale

And now on to the bargain. Another good thing about Fridays, besides the weekend that follows, is probably my favorite of the weekly events – Fifty Linden Friday! I picked up this hair from Wasabi. I just love the high braided pigtails. It includes a few HUDs full of colors, several rigged sizes, and the bangs are a separate piece. Pretty good deal for only 50L, if you ask me.

Refuge

Refuge

My goodness it’s cold out in my part of the world!  We’re hitting -27 degrees C today, so that means I am 100% curled up indoors exploring all the things SL can offer – beaches, dancing, new friends…and of course free fashion.  There’s nothing better than sitting down with a fresh cup of tea and then putting new outfits together for my avi.  She doesn’t mind, she’s pretty used to it by now.  Keep the deep freeze at bay – play with outfits today!  (That’s going to be my new motto forever now).

Back to Cosmo

If you haven’t checked out the group gifts at Cosmopolitan recently, you really should.  There are two quite lovely dresses up for members of the Cosmopolitan group, and I’m showing you the free gift courtesy of Safira.  They’ve been a bit quiet inworld recently, so it’s really nice to see them back in the swing of things.  Plus, how adorably sweet is this two piece dress from them?  The ruffles were just calling my name like mad.  There are two versions in the box – the plain pink I have on and a flower print version.  To get yours, join the Cosmo group for free, and click on the vendor located just inside the front doors of the event.  These gifts get changed out fairly often, and there’s only one week left in this round, so don’t wait too long!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky

A Bit off the Top

Yesterday FAGA announced that they had a new group gift out too – and that is this nice semi-messy bun hairstyle I have on.  In RL, I pretty much live and die by the messy bun so it’s nice to have a version in SL too.  Shame I can’t change my hair colour as easily as I can inworld!  This hairstyle comes in a full fatpack of colours (that range from natural to streaks to madcap colours galore) and three different sizes, with a style HUD as well.  The FAGA group is 350L to join, and you’ll find another group gift while you’re there.

I bite my thumb at thee, -27 degrees C!

Gonna Take You on a Surfing Safari…..

S&H No_Match, Stories & Co, Mini A Chuu

Bah Humbug! Enough with all this snow. We all could use some beach time. Thankfully a few of the designers at the Winter Shop & Hop feel the same.

Surfing into Christmas

Would you expect to find a swimsuit as a Winter Shop & Hop gift?? What a pleasant surprise when the box from Stories&Co was opened! Inside are 2 versions of the Mallory Swimsuit: Santa (red) & Elf (green). Both are trimmed in white. Can’t go wrong with this one.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy Legacy, Perky & Perky Petite
  • Maitreya Lara & Petite
  • SLink HG
  • V-Tech

You can’t go to the beach without cool shades. So hop over to the Mini A Chuu booth at Shop & Hop and pick up this free pair of glasses. A huge HUD is included to change different parts of the Faestine Snowflake Glasses .

No Wonder!

A couple of other free gifts rounded out my outfit. The fun hairstyle I’m wearing is the Cosmopolitan gift from No_Match. It’s one of my favorite places to buy hairstyles. Named No_Wonder the cute little pigtails and cap are perfect for winter beach time. It only comes in blonde shades. Fine with me; I can be a blonde or a redhead or whatever. Personally I believe redheads have more fun.  To grab this gift, look on the Christmas tree at the entrance of the event.

Going catch some waves,

Glimmer and Glitz

Around this time of year, I know we’re all looking for a cute dress that will help us through all the party hopping that inevitably takes place this time of year.  Something cute, something sparkly, something that will turn heads!  Something that (of course) won’t break the bank.  I got you boo!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I am totally in love with this dress!  The minute something has stars peppered all over it, I must needs have it.  This pretty cocktail dress is by RR and only cost 1L at the Christmas Wonderland event.  There are affordable gifts at every stall, most of which are just 1L.  This one really stood out to me, and I am kind of in love with it.  You’ve got until December 31st to see all the pretty things at Christmas Wonderland!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Voluptuous

Ah Yes, Free Hair!

We all know that one of the most tempting things you can grab for free in SL is free hair.  It’s not the easiest thing to come across, and if you keep your ear to the ground you can often find some great ones.  Such as this gorgeous free hair from Fabia!  To get it, just head on over to Cosmopolitan and join their free group.  You’ll find the group gifts right by the entrance flanking the doors.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and has a very extensive style HUD!  You’ll have plenty of fun with it, I promise.  Don’t wait too long, this round of Cosmopolitan is only running until December 11th!

So festive!
