Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Give Me a Reason

To Love You
Hello There Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long week for me in that place called real life. Needless to say I’m glad to be back in virtual reality. Today’s post features a few more FREE gifts from The Coven Lunar Festival, the August Group gift from Truth, and some inexpensive lingerie from Milk Tea.

Beautiful Blue

This sweet pastel blue lingerie set is a FREE group gift by Milk Tea for the Teleport Hub group members. You’ll find this gift at the Milk Tea main store. Look for a small sitting area to one side of the shop, there you’ll see the Teleport Hub group joiner and the gift box set to the Teleport Hub group. The group has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. The gift includes the applier lingerie set shown in this pastel blue shade. It also includes a shirt and pant layer for classic non mesh avatars.

Appliers Included:  Omega, Slink, Maitreya (one applier with all 3 options)

Elie

The long bob hairstyle named “Elie” that Pru is wearing is the August group gift for Truth VIP members. I love that this gift not only comes in a fatpack so you get every hair color available, but it also has a stylist hud for some fun style options. You can choose to wear the hair tucked behind the right or left ear, down on both sides, or tucked behind both ears. There are 8 total style variations. This cute hairstyle also has bobby pins when the hair is worn over the ear. The included hud will allow you to change the color of the pins, or choose to make them invisible. Additionally, there are rigged and unrigged versions of the hair included. The Truth VIP group has a one time join fee of 350 lindens.
A Reason
You might recall my previous post that featured a few of the FREE gifts at The Coven Lunar Festival, you can get a look at it here. There are tons of FREE gifts available at the event. I chose to include a few more in this post because I liked them too much not to share them.

Septum Piercing

Arise put out this pretty purple septum piercing as their The Coven Lunar Festival event gift. In the package you’ll get the piercing in a script free version, and one that includes resize scripts. You will need to join The Coven group and wear the group tag to get the gift. There is a group joiner at the landing point. The Coven Lunar Festival gifts are all in little black cauldrons. Just click the cauldron while wearing the group tag and your gift will be sent to you. The group is FREE to join.

Give Me a Reason

Personally, I am not  always a fan of tattoos that are mostly text. I think this one is very cute and simple, and it looks great when applied. This tattoo is The Coven Lunar Festival gift from Nanika. This is an applier tattoo only. With each applier you will be able to choose either dark, medium, or light depending on how dark you want the tattoo to appear. This gift will also require The Coven group tag.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya

Hair – TRUTH / Elie – FREE VIP Group Gift/Group is 350L to Join

Far Far Away

Far Far Away_001

Addicted

It’s safe to say I’m addicted… to the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I visited Stix this time and came away with a beautiful fantasy skin called Yuki Addicted for just 5L. It includes system layers plus…

Appliers for:

  • Omega for Catwa & Body
  • Omega for LAQ/Logo & Body
  • Omega for LeLutka & Body
  • Makeup Only applier

You might remember that Pru showcased the beautiful Yuki as Syx skin here which is the current group gift at Stix. This Yuki Addicted addition of the skin is another fantasy version which is just as beautiful and is in pink shades with pink eyebrows, pink cheeks and pink lipstick. I couldn’t resist it! I think it would be fun for everyday, and it is definitely perfect for roleplay!

Far Far Away

I went fishing… far far away. Okay. So I just went to Sn@tch. There is about a week left to pick up the current fishing prize before it is changed out next Wednesday. Currently is is a lovely little outfit called “Holiday in the Sun”.

You get the full kit and caboodle with jewelry, make up, shoes, tops, omega applier pants and so on. The mesh shirts come in the following colors: Pink (shown), Beige, Blue, Peach, Seafoam, White, and Violet. You’ll also get a texture change hud for the pants and the pants come in: Pink (shown), white, lavender, sky, seafoam, and peach.

Sizes available for the shirt:

  • Standard sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Moon Child

Lunar Obsession
If you haven’t been by The Coven Lunar Festival yet, you should go if for no other reason than to enjoy the delightfully spook atmosphere, and oh yeah, tons of FREE gifts! There is some stellar shopping available as well, but this is a FREEbie blog, so I’ll try to stay focused. lol At the landing point for The Coven you’ll see a group joiner, you’ll want to join the FREE group for The Coven so you can snag all the free witchy goth goodness. Once you’re wearing The Coven group tag, you can click on the little cauldrons with glowing purple contents at each of the participating vendor booths. I picked up quite a few gifts, and it was hard to narrow things down to a few favorites. The gifts range from clothing and accessories to decor.

Boho Suit

The sexy mono-kini is a The Coven event group gift from Nightmare. This mesh swimwear fits like a glove, and has a truly unique style in the back. You’ll have to pick this FREE gift up for yourself to see what I mean. I think it’s cute on it’s own, however it would also look cute with a pair of shorts or a long skirt.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Chloe

I love this long hairstyle by Vallani. Named Chloe, the hairstyle is Vallani’s FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. This gift includes the single hairstyle with a color change hud. There are quite a few color options including mostly “natural” red, white, blond, brunette, and black variations. There is a highlight texture, and a soft texture option for each of the colors. The one thing that makes this hud a bit different from most is there is a tinting option that allows you to pick a hair color then tint it any color you want. The possibilities are endless!

The Cyanide Mini Series

The pose used in the above photo is part of the gift at The Coven event by An Lar. This static pose is part of a set called the Cyanide Mini Series which comes with three individual poses and their mirrors for six total static poses. As a blogger and a photographer I am always excited about awesome FREE pose gifts! This particular pose is the second in the series, and my favorite of the three.
Moon Child

Onyx

This thin collar with the starburst dangle is the FREE gift at The Coven event from Kibitz. With this gift you’ll receive the choker/collar in black with the choice of either an onyx (shown), silver, or gold charm. There are no scripts in this jewelry, however it can be sized manually. It also has the added detail of a chain clasp in the back.

Moon Tie

Maybe it’s just me but I think mouthies might be making a comeback in Second Life. This cute FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival is by Peaches. There are a few variations of this thin ribbon with dangling moons included in this gift. You can choose either a black ribbon with silver moons or gold moons, or a white ribbon with silver or gold moons.

Moon & Star Bindi

Oubliette put out this cute crescent moon and star bindi as their FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. I love how delicate it looks. This simple yet pretty bindi has no scripts or huds, however you can adjust the size and color manually using the edit menu. Should you choose to edit this yourself, I highly suggest making a copy of it first just in case!

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

A Vixen in Crimson

Lady in Red
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I wrapped our Sunday up by taking a stroll on the Anneliese sim.  It was a relaxing way to close out the break from the work week.

Lady in Red

My adorable red dress with a slightly flared hemline is a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Snowpaws. With a vibrant red hue and a coordinating red silk choker, the Soma Ruffle Dress had me feeling bright and cheerful.   From its plunging neckline, to its carefree asymmetrical skirt, this silk frock is perfect for a date night, or just feeling extra special.  It comes in five sizes – XXS, XS, S, M, and L, and the box contains an alpha layer for classic avatars.  The small size was just right for my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  Best of all, you can pick up this crimson beauty completely for free! Simply activate your Fab Free Group tag and teleport over to Snowpaws.  With one quick click, you can add Soma to your inventory.

Budget Friendly Bento Tresses

I discovered my sleek, center-parted Ellie hair style on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden dollar at the Vallani shop.  It comes complete with a tint and style HUD, which contains 9 style options and 30 color variations, which offers a great deal of flexibility.  The hair has fitted and Bento animated versions.   The Bento style is in the experimental stage, but it comes with a quick lock option, so you can stop the movement of your tresses quite easily.  I ended up using this handy HUD to keep my hair still.  I really like the slight wave at the ends of the style.  For just one little Linden Dollar, you can add a lovely, versatile new ‘do to your collection.

Tomorrow, it’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guarding the house for the pupster.  Oh, how I long for our carefree summer days to return!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A cozy living room

Cuddle Up_001

Stop by Kitty Creations and pick up the Third Life Group gift they have available to you. The entire living room set comes together as the gift and is only 19 prim total. It’s on the second floor with all the other discount and gift items.

Happy Shopping!

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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!

Bigfoot by Day and Night!

Bigfoot shirt

I’m a big fan of fun graphic t-shirts. I’m also one of those Bigfoot skeptics. I mean how is Bigfoot really real? Everyone is always looking for Bigfoot… but how often do they ask the *real* question? Hmm? Hmm?
