Queen Bee

Queen Bee
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday! Pru is serving some serious face on this Sunday-funday, and with good reason. I have two group gifts from Swallow to tell you about, and the August group gift from e.marie. I hope you love them.

Swallow – It had been a little bit since I’d stopped in Swallow to check out all their cool jewelry and such. So I did, and I’m always impressed with their group gift section. During a recent shopping excursion at Swallow I picked up this beautiful bee septum piercing. It comes with a hud that lets you pick from several metallic tones, and switch the full bright on or off. Also it has resize scripts for easy fitting.

The second gift I picked up at Swallow (out of the many available) is a pretty lip applier set. There are 2 applier sets, with 3 lipstick shades (a red, a purple, and a pink) each. I will say that the colors are very similar in the two sets, one set seems just a bit more matte than the other maybe. That said, they are all very pretty on. The appliers work with Catwa heads only. The Swallow group does have a one time join fee of just 40 linden.

E.Marie – The super cute manicure Pru has is the August group gift at e.marie. The set is a fun mix of black, white, gold, and what I would call a rose-gold color with cool graphic images and patterns. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can get a better look. This manicure set from e.marie comes in several fits/sizes. Also, there’s a regular version, and a “shine” version. These are mesh nails, not appliers! The e.marie group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden.

Grape Soda and a Bear Skin Rug

Grape Soda
Oh Hi There Fab Free! Don’t mind me, I’m just daydreaming about The Joker and Harley Quinn. Am I the only one who swooned a little when in the Suicide Squad movie Joker told Harley he had grape soda and a bear skin rug waiting!? Okay, maybe I swooned a lot.  All comic book fantasies aside, I do have some fabulous free group gifts to share with you, and thanks to my sweet friend Grace, I’m gonna enjoy this grape soda.

The Skin – The sweet face Pru has is all thanks to the Kamala group gift head applier from Stix. I think the pink lips are a sweet touch. The Kamala applier is also brow-less so you can rock the no-brows alien look, or you can wear a brow applier of your choice. I am partial to the Just Magnetized brows myself. This free group gift at Stix comes with an Omega head applier in all the Stix skin tones, even the fantasy ones. Pru is wearing the “Puddin'” tone. There’s also a shape, and a set of system layer base skins. To get your copy, head over to Stix, and make sure you wear your PixyStix group tag. PixyStix is the store group, and it is free to join at this time.

The Lingerie – Okay I won’t reiterate the fact that I’m a lingerie junkie. I’ll just tell you the free group gift by MH Unique at the Avangarde Event is so sweet and sexy. I love the girly bow details. This free group gift comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud with 10 color choices. I’ve added the original ad for this Avangarde Event group gift below so you can get a better look. For this gift you’ll need to join the Avangarde Event group which is free to join.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/18/2018 – B’s 25!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far. This week I get to talk with you a little shop called B’s 25!. Once again I find myself using the word “eclectic” to describe the fabulous products a store has to offer. B’s 25! has probably the most eclectic mix of items I’ve come across. This cute shop also happens to be located on The Wash sim, which is in my opinion a bonus, but of course I’m biased.

At B’s 25! you’ll find a few ladies clothing items, accessories, decor items, and one or two small furniture pieces. Shopping at B’s 25! is definitely a unique experience. Most of the items are on the first floor, however you can take a teleport  If you’re looking for the gifts and free goodies, look no further than the purple desk at the far end of the room. There are a few small purple gift sacks waiting there for B’s 25! group members. The B’s 25! group is free to join. Also, don’t forget to put on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and pick up your Fab Free group gift from B’s 25!. It would be a shame to miss out on this spooky cool jewelry set. As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

~ Stan (Kat)

I Used to Sail the Deep and Tranquil Sea

Pirate Life For Me
Ahoy There Fab Free Mateys! I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks to the Skull n Bones Hunt, I’ve spent the last day in pirate gear, and I’m not at all mad about it! Kastle Rock Couture has this playful pirate outfit as their Skull n Bones Hunt prize for the ladies. I also read all about the hunt happening at This Is Wrong from Alison’s post “Follow Me Down to the Water.” So of course, I had to participate in that! This red full body tattoo is one of the several 30L items you’ll find. I hope you like this fantasy pirate look as much as I do!

The Outfit – When I say outfit, I mean outfit. This Skull n Bones Hunt prize from Kastle Rock comes with the boots, the skirt, the top, and the hat. There is also a matching men’s pirate outfit. You’ll find this 2 linden hunt prize is on the Rum Runner path of the Skull n Bones hunt. The prize is just 2 linden, and you’ll be searching for a little red starfish. The skirt and top also come in a “risque” version which is slightly transparent. The shoes and hat come in a single size, and there is an alpha layer with the boots. P.S. This outfit is suitable for Classic Avatars!
Hint – “I’m stuck in limbo between Mens and mini dresses, at least there are places to sit… Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine. ”
Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Classic (xxs – L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Fine, Curvy), eBody (top only)

The Tattoo – This is the last day of the 30L hunt at This is Wrong! To find the items just click the vendors and look for the items marked 30 linden. I picked up a few things, but there are several items marked down, including some for the guys. I love a good full-body tattoo. This one is not only full body, but has face appliers for Catwa and Lelutka, and comes in fresh and faded versions. Also, check out the Lucky Letter boards while you are there. There’s no group needed for those!
Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – +Spellbound+ – Lionhearted

Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Skin –  Essences – Blake

OutfitKastle Rock – :KR: Trixie Outfit – Pirate – 2L SB Hunt Prize

Meh, Whatever!

Meh, Whatever

Hello Fabulouses!  Rip and I continued with our hunting spree this weekend – this time along the Meh, Whatever Hunt trail.  With prizes set to sale for just 1L each, this event runs until August 31.  There is quite a variety in the hunt gifts since the theme for designers was to create whatever they wanted.  You can get a preview of what’s available by visiting the Pounce Hunts web page here.  You’ll be looking for a red and black box with question marks.

Pretty as a Blooming Dahlia

When I saw the preview photo of the Macy Silk Dress from C!L Boutique, I knew she was destined for my inventory!  With a sleeveless design featuring cute cutouts on the shoulder straps, a gathered waistline, and a just-above-the-knee length skirt, this frock is ideal for these warm, dog days of summer.  I just love the soft pink color and the detail put into the stitching.  Since the package contains sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find a fit just right for you.  For only one Linden dollar and a bit of time searching, this was a very budget friendly addition to my inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

It’s Just So Cute!

Island Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post from me to share a casual “take it easy” day outfit.  And boy, after the past day in RL, I sure need it!  I had recently purchased a new car after driving the same one for 12 years.  I have had it for 2 weeks, and someone hit it in the parking lot, leaving quite a bit of damage, and no note to claim responsibility.  What a bummer!  At least I could escape to this spectacular island in SL, and chill in my new jumpsuit.  The best part (since I now have to pay my insurance deductible – ouch!) is the outfit was completely free!

Another Dumpster Diving Find

In my last post, I shared a date night outfit with a coordinating men’s suit (it’s here if you missed it).  Stan and I picked them up as part of the Dumpster Diving Hunt that is running until August 31st.  Since we had such great luck at our first stop, Ripley and I decided to continue on down the trail.  At Fukin Cute, we quickly discovered the mini dumpster concealed in the shop and I excitedly teleported home to open the free package.  Nestled inside, the sporty Kardashi jumpsuit promised relaxation and comfort.  With its semi sheer tank style top, gathered waist, and long sleek pants, this little number will have you decked out in style.  The designer even included a HUD that allows you to alter the color of the eye catching stripes that run the entire length of the suit.  I opted for the purple combo, but you have 5 other choices if purple and pink is not your cup of tea.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hangin Around

Hangin Around

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  As you can see, Ripley and I decided to keep spending the weekend at the beach.  It’s a good thing I had picked up the latest free gift for members of the FaShIoNable Group over at ALB Dream Fashion.  The best part is since the group is free to join, I added a sweet summery outfit to my wardrobe without spending a single Linden dollar!  After donning the bikini bottom and pretty cover up, I was all set for a day of strolling along the shore.

Ready for Fun in the Sun

With its tropical print scattered over a teal blue background, this outfit made me think immediately of palm trees and lazy days relaxing in the shade with a good book and a fruity Bahama Mama in hand.  The strapless cover up is knotted in the front and opens as it flows down to allow the cool ocean breeze to caress your skin.  A coordinating bikini bottom completes the look.  I like how the hemline is shorter in the front but drapes down to knee height in the back.   I enjoyed lounging around in this casual outfit so much that it’s making it hard to face Monday morning and the return to work!  Ripley is not helping as he is encouraging me to play hookey and spend “just one more day” at the beach…  I’ll simply have to explain how my salary pays for all those Ripley snacks Stan keeps bribing him with, and the pupster will be shoving me out the door in the morning.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Werewolf

Until next time, happy shopping!
