Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Special Snowflake

Special Snowflake
Hey There Fab Free! I have been lost in the land of Real Life for a few days, and while it was fun, I’m glad to be back. Sometimes there’s nothing better than cozy familiar places. Fab Free is definitely one of my cozy familiar places. I miss it when I’m gone. In the spirit of “I’m-happy-to-be-back” I’ve got a quick post with new gift from Dead Dollz to share with you.

It’s not a secret that I love pin-up styles. So needless to say, I was uber excited to see this tie front sweater group gift at Dead Dollz. I love the big gold polka-dots and the pale pink sleeve cuffs. The best part by far however is the glittery phrase scrawled across the back. Yep, it says “Special Snowflake.” Love it. The gift comes in a single mesh size specifically for the Maitreya Lara body. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden. You will need to wear a Dead Dollz group tag to get this gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The New Color of Sexy

Shine

I’m still relaxing in my comfy chair. I’ve spent the morning sorting through old journals of my grandfather’s from World War II. He’s been gone for several years now, but I miss him and it’s been nice to travel down memory lane and learn a little more about his life. I haven’t changed out of my pajamas yet either… this great set of wine colored lingerie.

The new color of sexy…

Ashmoot has been putting out beautiful gifts each month, including this Long Shirt that is still out that Love blogged here. This month was no exception and you can pick up this gorgeous applier lingerie in burgundy as a free group gift (the group is free to join). It comes in appliers for System bodies, Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. I really fell in love with the lacy neckline and lace bodysuit of the one piece.

The Hair Fair is here!

The Hair Fair started yesterday! And we all know that not only does that mean money is raised for a great cause, but that creators are generous with lots of amazing and wonderful gifts for visitors. You can visit the Hair Fair website for more information here.

I picked up my luscious locks by enVogue by stopping at one of the cam shopping locations on the outskirts of the Hair Fair. These have been set up to allow you to cam shop. There is less lag and you can just cam in and look in the booths to pick out the items that you want.

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

I cammed away while I was in the corner of the Foils Cam Sim and happened to see the enVogue booth and picked up the gift there for just 1L. When I opened it, I was thrilled with the gift inside. This style, called Beyonce, includes a hud for a fatpack of colors and has a beautiful flow and realistic texture. It was well worth my camming and crowd fighting time!

Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included

  • Vista Bento Hands
  • Maitreya Lara Bento Hands
  • Tuty Bento Hands

Pretty in Pastels

Pastel
Hello Fab Free’rs, It’s been such a busy week for me, I’m just not sure why! lol Needless to say I’m always excited when I get to share my Fabulous finds with you. Even after all the time I’ve spent in Second Life, and all the experiences I’ve had, bargain hunting remains one of my favorite pastimes. The best bargains however, are the ones that come to you, no hunting required.

The Best Things in Second Life are Free

Just recently Graffitiwear sent out this beautiful jewelry set to their subscriber members. Each item in this FREE gift is beautifully detailed. The lovely pink floral image is perfect for spring, not to mention the upcoming Easter holiday. The full set is included in this gift from Graffitiwear. To get your copy, head over to Graffitiwear and join the subscriber. The gift will be delivered to you automatically. Already joined but missed the gift?

To compliment my new pretty baubles I picked up the latest Fab Free exclusive group gifts at Hello Dave, all 3 of them. Nope, that’s not a typo, Hello Dave has 3 nail applier sets out for FREE to all Fab Free group members. The nail color Pru is wearing is part of the matte Sweet Like Sugar set. There’s a matching glossy version, and a special Speckled Eggs set. Each of the 3 sets has pretty pastel colors. The appliers will work with Slink, Omega, and Maitreya nails. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendors at Hello Dave. Don’t forget, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

The Skin Pru’s In 

This lovely face is courtesy of WoW Skins, via their April group gift. I always like the combination of a soft smokey eye with a pale lip. The April group gift at WoW includes two classic system skins (one with a little extra cleavage), and an Omega applier that works for Omega compatible bodies and heads. To get this FREE group gift, you’ll need to join the WoW Skins group which carries a one time join fee of 450 linden.

Stay Wild Flower Child

Flower Child
Hey There Fab Free’rs I’m so glad you’re here! I’m feelin’ a little bohemian today in these fabulous group gifts I came across. I have to tell you, I also feel like I’ve been unintentionally shop-stalking Love lately. We seem to end up at the same stores for our freebie finds. I think that means we both have excellent taste! I picked up these hella cute sunnies at Scandalize not realizing Love had done some Fab Free style shopping at Scandalize herself recently. See what she found in her Ray of Sunshine post. Knowing I wanted to play up the retro feel of these over-sized sunglasses, I also picked up this halter top at Sexy Princess. Finally having always been a sucker for a cute tattoo, I just had to add in the March group gift from Aurica. Ultimately I am pretty pleased with the end result of these gifts all worn together, I hope you like them too!

Good Day Sunshine 

Sunglasses are far and away my favorite accessory. These FREE group gift sunglasses are available at Scandalize. They come in pink (shown) and red color variations and are equipped with re-size scripts for easy fitting. The Scandalize group is FREE to join. You’ll find this gift on the second floor along with several previous group gifts.

Stay Wild 

I think I must be eager for warmer weather, it seems I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed a lot of warm weather styles on the blog lately. This top from Sexy Princess called out to me. It said “Pru, you need me in your closet!” lol I live in a place where it’s hot more often than not, so halter tops are almost always in fashion.  This group gift is not only super cute, it’s completely FREE at Sexy Princess. It’s also just one of the two group gifts I saw available. The top comes in fitmesh sizes, standard mesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya Lara, and one for Slink. The Sexy Princess group is also FREE to join.

Flower Child

How cute is this blue floral tattoo from Aurica?! I love the look of the bright blue flowers. They remind me of those antique china patterns. The applier set is the FREE group gift for March at Aurica. The applier hud is set up to work with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies and hands. There’s also a note in the package about how to get the tattoo to work with bento hands. The Aurica group is currently FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available. Included among the still available gifts is the New Years Zen post I did at the beginning of the year.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Close Your Eyes and I’ll Kiss You

Lipstick & Lingerie

All My Lovin’ …

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Free! There are few in my Second Life world that I adore more than my Fab Free family. Fabulously Free in SL has become my home. I wouldn’t want to be without the blog or the people I’ve come to know and cherish through my involvement with Fab Free. So today all my love goes to my Fab Free family and all the wonderful people in Second Life who are such an important part of the Fab Free community.

… I Will Send To You

On a quick side-note, while I find all the blog posts inspiring, Love and Carson have inspired me with their blog posts a lot lately. Carson with all his catchy song lyrics to go with his finds, and Love with all the gorgeous lingerie she’s been finding to share with us. I found myself oogling the pretty things and set out to find a some of my own, meanwhile getting songs stuck in my head. My efforts led me to Kendrasy Creations where I picked up this pink floral bustier. The top comes in the following body-specific sizes: eBody, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). To get this FREE gift, join the FREE-to-join Kendrasy Creations in world group. Then click the gift vendor. You’ll also notice a few other group gifts still available, so don’t miss out on those while you’re there.

I’ll Pretend That I’m Kissing…

Still humming silly love songs, I continued my search for pretty Valentine-y things to share with you.  That’s when I came across some kisses, what better way to share a little love?! haha Those sweet little lipstick kisses on Pru’s cheeks are another FREE group gift. This fun little applier is a recent group gift at LePunk. The gift lets you apply lipstick kiss marks to your cheeks in red, pink, or black. it works with Catwa heads only, however there are some other gifts also worth checking out at LePunk. You will need to join the LePunk group to get this FREE gift. The group is FREE to join.

Fiercely Cute

Fiercely Plaid
Well Hellooo. It’s a new day and I am glad of it. Yesterday I was feeling a little blue and thankfully Love was there to feed me brownies and listen to me while I talked through all that has been bothering me recently. I am forever thankful for the wonderful women in my life. Today I woke up with a renewed sense of self and a brighter outlook. Sometimes all you need is to talk it out, and the brownies helped too! You may or may not have noticed, I keep returning to this stance in my photos lately. I think it’s fierce, and I wanted to remind myself and everyone that we are all fiercely capable amazing human beings.

If I had to pick a pattern for the look of fierce, my go-to would be red plaid. This seriously cute dress is a FREE group gift from Rir Life. Even with the undeniably feminine cut of this simple dress, I feel strong and feminine at the same time. It is the sort of dress you could wear with boots, heels, or sandals and still look good. Heck go barefoot! The gift includes the mesh dress in fitmesh sizes as well as specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. To get this adorable FREE gift, head over to Rir Life and join their FREE group. While wearing the Rir Life group tag, just click the gift box on the counter under the vendor photo.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I <3 #Subscriber Gifts

Hucci enVOGUEIt’s Sunday fun-day, I hope everyone is able to enjoy the day. I’m still in a daze over the fact that it’s already November. It just doesn’t feel quite like fall yet, and we are already inching toward winter. Maybe that’s why I found myself going with a much more “warm weather” look than I might have otherwise. It’s still so warm outside! That said, I’ll get on with it! I recently came across two subscriber gifts, one from enVOGUE and one from Hucci.

Just a few days ago, enVOGUE released a new subscriber gift named Elissa. This is a lovely center part hairstyle with full fluffy waves that lay perfectly over your shoulders. This generous gift comes in a cool ombre color pack. You’ll find pretty fades in brunettes, blonds, and reds, a few of which even have colored ends for added variety. To get this FREE gift from enVOGUE, simply head over to the main location and join the subscriber. Existing enVOGUE subscribers can find the gift in the subscriber message history.

I love that Hucci often gifts shoes. Shoes always fit! These chunky heels with peep toes and heel cutouts come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara feet, Belleza feet, and Slink feet. Also, this FREE  subscriber gift is a group only version with the zebra pattern we have seen in past gifts from Hucci. Current Hucci subscriber members can use the subscriber system to have this FREE gift redelivered.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cynful #bubbles

Cynful #bubblesHello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here sharing the freebie love with you! Today’s post features my favorite type of shirt, sweaters/sweatshirts, and my favorite style of necklace, a choker. It’s not often that the two items look well together, but I think it made it work! I hope you like them.

For me one of the best things about fall is it’s generally the beginning of sweater weather. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for me this year in real life, it’s still a tad too warm for sweaters. Thankfully I get to retreat to Second Life and enjoy the sweaters anyway. This particularly cute sweater is a FREE group gift at #bubbles. Included in the gift you’ll find this sweater in several fitmesh sizes, and body specific sizes. I think the off-the-shoulder style of this sweater from #bubbles makes it extra cute!

The choker Pru is wearing is another group gift, this time from Cynful. This particular gift is a thank-you gift for all the awesome Cynful Clothing & Co. customers and group members. The mesh choker/collar has a hud that allows you to change the wording between various empowering words like “strength” or “slay”. While using the hud you can also change the metal color of the word, as well as the color of the choker. This playful piece of jewelry is FREE to all group members, and the Cynful group is FREE to join.
