A Summer Hideaway

Summer Hideaway

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! I was too lazy to even get my virtual self dressed today, so I thought I would share a few home and garden freebies instead.

Shelter Me

First off is this lovely Garden Shelter, which is a group gift from KraftWork. It’s a dark wood on the inside, and it looks like it was carved into a rock on the backside. The whole thing clocks in at just 9 LI. The 3 lights on the back wall are included.

Next is the cozy bench. DMG set out this Outdoor Seating as their June group gift. At 5 LI, it includes animations for singles as well as cuddles.

The pretty planters you see here are the latest group gift from Shutter Field. The Tuscan Planters come in a tall version (on the left) and a short version (on the right). Both are 2 LI each.

Because They Were There

I wasn’t looking for them, but I managed to pick up a few extra gifts while I was out:

  • See the little bird on the arm of the Outdoor Seating (if not, you can click the photo to make it bigger). He’s a Spring Blue Jay and can be found as a free gift at La Galleria. This cutie is just 1 LI and has an “intermittent sound script” with touch for on/off. Note: there are quite a few other gifts at this store, so be sure to take a look around.
  • The Plaster Candles on the table are a free gift at Apple Fall. They are 2 LI and you can turn the flame on and off with a touch.
  • Last but not least are the Macarons in a Box on the table. These are also a free gift at Apple Fall and are just 1 LI. Aline showed them in her post HERE, but they might not have been a free gift at the time. Be sure to grab them NOW while they’re free!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/22/2018 – Alias!

Alias Entrance
Hellooo Fab Free! It’s Fri-yay or well, for a little bit longer it is. It is the weekend just the same and for that I am thankful. This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Alias Wear. At Alias Wear you’ll find an eclectic mix of casual ladies clothing. Think tops, jeans, cute dresses, and even some swimwear. I noticed lots of cute warm weather clothing. Also if you’re into breedables like KittyCats in SL, there are a few carts outside the entrance with fun little animals for sale. Otherwise, there are several freebies to be had at Alias Wear. You can see the Midnight Madness board from outside the store!
Alias Freebies & Gifts
Alias Wear does have a free-to-join store group, however I did not notice any group gifts that were specifically for Alias Wear group members. I was able to participate in the current Midnight Madness board without wearing a specific group tag. To the right just inside the entrance is where you’ll  find quite a few other goodies at Alias. There are 6 Lucky Letter Boards that do not require a group tag to participate. I actually picked up a few of the free Lucky Letter prizes myself! In this same spot you’ll also find a few group gifts and their associated group, such as the Fab Free group gift. The free exclusive Fab Free group gift at Alias Wear is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. As always, the Fab Free group is free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Surf’s Up!

Surfs Up

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I have quite a gift to share with you today – it’s a free Bento mesh head.  Yup, you read that right – freeAkeruka Creations is offering the Leon Bento mesh head to members of the AK Heads, News & Support group as a gift.  This head comes with all the bells and whistles:  a shape for your body, mesh eyes, animations HUD, piercings, teeth, gestures, and even a body skin applier for Belleza, Signature and Slink mesh bodies.  The body applier has ten skin tones, and makes it a snap to match up Leon with your pre-existing mesh body.  The Leon shape is completely editable, so I was able to adjust the sliders to get the look I wanted.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you do need to be a group member (joining costs 150L), but monthly gifts are offered, and even if you were just to get Leon alone, 150L for a Bento Mesh head is an amazing deal!  I’m not sure how long this offer will be available, so I’d recommend teleporting over to Akeruka Creations soon if you are in the market for a new mesh head.

The Surfer’s Life

Well, I’m gonna grab my board and catch a few waves while the surf is strong.  Good thing I have my new Surf’s Up Wetsuit in Sear from RIOT.  I picked it up over at The Arcade for just 50L.  The machine is packed with beachwear, swim trunks, wet t-shirts, six different surf boards, and some ice cream sandwiches to enjoy after a long day of shooting the curl.  Ladies, there are wetsuits and shirts for you to win, too.  Before you pay to play, you will need to select whether you would like Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, or Slink Male.  I was wishing to score the wet t shirt, which would have been great for showing off my abs, but sigh……. Anyway, I’m off!  Hopefully I won’t have too many wipe outs.  Wish me luck!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A “Berry” Fine Discovery

Cascade

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share a budget friendly shirt that I picked up as a hunt item.  When Ripley and I were shopping at the Trashed store, he kept tugging on his leash, and dragged me over to a tiny strawberry that had been concealed in the shop.  It is the hunt object for The 4 Seasons Hunt, which runs through June 26th.  We weren’t following the hunt trail, but I’m sure glad the pupster spied that berry!  For just one Linden dollar, I picked up a terrific top.   The Cascade shirt has a black and gray paisley print on the long sleeve undershirt with a solid black tee shirt over it.  The pair needs to be worn as a duo, but I like the combination of the two, and will definitely wear this more often when the fall temperatures hit.  The package includes versions for a variety of mesh bodies, but not for classic avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • David
  • TMP

Until next time, happy shopping!

Mother of Dragons

Mother of Dragons

I’m having Game of Thrones withdrawals. Can you tell, lol?

Seriously though, when I put on this dress with the hair, I got such a strong Daenerys Targaryen vibe that I couldn’t help myself. And then, when I found the pose on the Marketplace for just 50L, well, it all just came together.

So I hope you’ll enjoy my fun little GoT roleplay picture. 🙂

What’s the Secret?

I paid a visit to the Redeux event over the weekend and picked up this gorgeous dress by Junbug. The secret is that it’s FREE. That’s right, Adele’s Secret is a free gift for members of the Redeux in-world group.

The dress comes in 11 beautiful colors. Sizes are standard mesh only, XXS-L with an alpha layer.

Just for fun, I added the Medieval Tiara by LORIEN which I also picked up as a free gift at Redeux. It comes in only one size, but if you need to change it, you can always do an edit > stretch.

Don’t Wait. Go Now!

I believe I read somewhere that there are 57 gifts available at Redeux. And since the event is only open until June 21st, you’d better head over there SOON. It’s going to take you some time to collect all those gifts! 😀

Netflix and Chocolate

Netflix & Chocolate
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! What do you do when it’s 3am and you can’t sleep? Get out the chocolate, make some coffee, and binge watch something on Netflix. That’s what I do anyway. I also might do a little hunting in Second Life. Just recently the Sweet & Sour Hunt began, and there are several great shops participating. The Sweet & Sour Hunt is a dollarbie (1 linden) hunt which will run through July 15th. I picked up a couple of the prizes and am excited to share two of them with you today.

All things considered this dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt prize from X.T.C. Poses couldn’t be more perfect for someone like me. Aptly named “Netflix n …Chocolate” this pose is one of two Sweet & Sour Hunt prizes at X.T.C. Poses. This pose includes the coffee and chocolate along with the static pose for just 1 linden. That’s a steal of a deal if you ask me!

HintF (shown) – Maybe I should phone a friend for help? / M (not shown) – Grab a soda, might help you think

Trashed is also participating in the dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt. Their hunt prize is this cute bandeau style mesh top. The dollarbie top from Trashed comes in a few sizes in the single blue/grey color shown.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (small, large)

Hint – Flaunting at Midnight

A Poet at Heart

A Poet at Heart

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day, I received a message from Sere Timeless, telling me about the Poet’s Heart store.  I am so glad that I followed Sere’s advice and teleported to the shop, because I picked up this gorgeous Marisol outfit as a free group gift.

Romantic, Poetic Style

Featuring a multi-tiered maxi skirt with a generous hem, and a cropped top with loose sleeves, this outfit has a gypsy vibe that I just love.  Its color scheme of blues and aquas brought back memories of the beach glass I collected on the sand as a young girl.  While the top is constructed with a satiny, shimmery fabric, the skirt’s layers are decorated with a floral pattern that adds visual interest and texture.  Although there is no version specifically made for mesh avatars, by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body, I was able to achieve a perfect fit.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, switch to the Poet’s Heart group (it’s completely free to join) and click the vendor.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the three other free gifts for group members as well.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • Alpha layer for skirt and top (parts can be worn separately)

Thank you so much, Sere, for letting me know about the Poet’s Heart shop!  I know I will be stopping by there frequently for more lovely additions to my wardrobe.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Vinyl Kitty

Vinyl Kitty
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs. This photo is the perfect example of Pru living my idea of the best lazy day ever. All that’s missing from the photo is something delicious to drink. I’d love to spend the day with fantastically messy hair, in my undies, listening to my records. I don’t care if that makes me a hipster. I’m good with it. haha

The Hair – Speaking of fantastically messy hair, this hairstyle is the June group gift at Besom. The style is called “Pythia” and it comes in a full fat pack. To get your copy head on over to Besom and wear your group tag. The currently available group gifts are on the wall to the right just inside the store. The Besom group has a one time join fee of 199 linden. Don’t forget there is more than one group gift available!

The Socks – Now about these kitty socks. It’s true, Pru often takes “crazy cat lady” to the next level. Why be a cat lady, when you can be a cat-lady?! She says with a twitch of her kitty ears. So it stands to reason these free group gift socks from Vinyl had to come home with me. There are quite a few group gifts currently available at Vinyl, and the group is free to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – #Besom~Pythia – Free Group Gift/Group is 199L to Join

Catch a Wave With Me

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Come on down to Basil Bay, and join me for a beach party!  The sun is shining, the sand is warm beneath my feet, and the inviting water is there to cool us off.  I brought plenty of food, a cooler full of beverages, and of course, a container full of Ripley Snacks.  (The pupster is hoping you’ll bring along some canine pals, too.)  The more, the merrier!  Now, that’s the way to spend a Saturday!

But First, a Bit of Shopping

Before you pack your sunscreen and towel, I have a couple of budget friendly finds to share with you that are perfect for a day at the beach.  Since showing a bit of skin is part of the package, I decided to add some new body art that I picked up at the Jersey Shore for just 10L.  The Troy Lite Tattoo covers both my arms with intricate designs.  I really like the diamonds at the edge of my wrists.  You can pick up a copy for yourself at Addicted to Ink’s stall over at the Jersey Shore.  The package includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, and Slink, and is specially priced at the event for only 10L.

Looking for a Terrific Tank?

I wanted everyone to be able to see my new tats, so a tank top was the way to go for the day.  Luckily, I discovered a specially priced one at Redangel Designs.  Right now, the shop is offering the Arnold Tank at a reduced price specifically for members of the Redangel Designs group.  Normally sold for 499 Linden dollars, for a limited amount of time, members can purchase this top for just 50 Linden dollars.  The package includes fits for classic and mesh bodies, as well as a texture change HUD with 8 color options.  That’s kind of like getting eight tops for just 50L.  Count me in!  Joining the group will set you back 25L, but that opens up six lucky chairs, a midnight madness board and a gift board which are exclusively set up for group members.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Those Eyes

Take in All the Sights

Of course, ya gotta be able to enjoy the panoramic vistas of the beach, and what better way to do so than through a new pair of peepers?  The other day, Kat shared a cute crop top in honor of Pride Month, but for me, I’m gonna show my support every day, ALL month long with my new Pride Eyes that I picked up as a free group gift over at the Madame Noir Store.  With both mesh and applier versions for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, these eyes are quite versatile.  Using the included HUD, you can select either large or small irises.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Madame Noir Store group, but it’s completely free to join.  I don’t know how long these will be available, but if you are looking for some vibrant and colorful eyes to sport, I’d recommend a trip over to the Madame Noir Store.

So, what time can I plan for your arrival?  I’ll be here all day, just taking in the rays, grilling some burgers, and looking forward to catching a wave or two.  I hope you come on down!

~ Stan (Kat)
