Ahoy

FabFree: Ahoy

Hey there Fabulouses!  Are you ready for summer?  I sure am :).  My RL weather is not co-operating at all with my plans to get a jump on summer…  In fact, I am still not certain that we are having spring yet, alas I can enjoy the sunshine in SL!  I have news of three group gifts to share with you today.

Hey there Sailor!

Safira has a brand new group gift up on the VIP wall upstairs at the Safira Mainstore, and that gift is the original mesh Thais Swimsuit that comes in both navy and blush!  The group is 50L to join, but that will gain you access to the WHOLE VIP gift wall, which is growing every week it seems.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Still FaMESHed!

The FaMESHed Anniversary round is still going on for another week and if you haven’t popped in for gifts, you simply must!  The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join and almost every designer is participating with a free treat for group members.  I have added the Baiastice Sailor Hat and Minimal Anniversary Gift Glasses that are both free at the event at their respective displays.

ps.  My hair is  Stella by Rama and is on sale for 75L this week!

Soda Pop

FabFree: Soda Pop

Hello there Fabulouses!  A new round of FaMESHed has begun and guess what…  It’s an Anniversary round, which means there are free group gifts set to the FaMESHed inworld group (totally free to join) at almost every display during this round.  I am sure you will be seeing a ton of them throughout the blog during the month of May on FabFree, because as I open up boxes and bags, I am finding that there are a ton of really nice quality items.

FaMESHed Group Gifts by COCO & Elikatira

I’m wearing a couple free group gifts in my sassy look that I picked up at FaMESHed in my blog post today.  The Misha Hairstyle is available in the essentials pack by Elikatira and the High Waist Cargo Pants in Camo can be found at the COCO display!

I’ll be back soon with more FaMESHed Anniversary Round news!

ps.  What do you call this fizzy drink in your part of the world?  It’s “pop” here in Western Canada!

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

My heart is in Havana

FabFree: My heart is in Havana
Hey there Fabulous Readers! As you can see, I am in absolutely no rush to get into fall apparel yet.  I’ll be wearing my summer gear until the sun stops shining!  How about you?  Are you one of those jump ahead with boots and sweaters kind of people or the kind that drags out summer as long as they possibly can?  I suppose the fact that my winter is most of the year probably decides for me…  I take advantage of it as much as I can!

A sweater?  Forget it!  How about a compromise?

This 2 pc loose chunky knit set called Havana is available as a free group gift at Beautiful Dirty Rich with a free group join!  It’s a sort of sweater, right?  This set comes in a ton of mesh body fits and includes a texture change HUD that allows for tons of florals and solids to mix and match.  I added their vendor ad below so that you can see them all.
*B.D.R.* Havana (GG)

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • eBody Curvy

My Necklace is also free!

Need a pretty bauble to add a little something extra to your new outfit?  Stop by FaMESHed!  At the landing point of the new round for September, you’ll find a cart full of free Fameshed group gifts by a selection of participating designers.  You might as well grab them all lol, but in one of those boxes you’ll find the chunky Eos Gold 2018 necklace shown on my avatar by Eurdora 3D for FREE!  You will need to join the FaMESHed inworld group to pick up these gifts, but the group is free – so score!

C’mon Let Me Ride Your Bicycle

HOLA
Hello there Fabulouses! It’s been a while since I have pulled my bike out and taken it for a ride in RL.  In fact, I can’t remember if I still own one.  It may be in the back of the garage somewhere!  All of this wonderful warm weather is sure opening me up to the idea to look for it, but today I decided to go for a ride inworld instead.  Here when I crash into things and fall off, it doesn’t hurt :D.

Race You to FaMESHed!

My casual summer look today is put together with three group gifts that I had picked up at FaMESHed!  I have done a couple of posts previously [HERE] and [HERE] to tell you all about the amazing lot of FREE group gifts available during this Anniversary round, and will be available until the end of the month.

The Three Gifts I’m Wearing Today Are:

  • COCO Gift CropTee:  Sizes Included – Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass & Physique, Belleza Freya & Isis.
  • Le Fil Casse Monday Skirt:  Fitted for Maitreya – Comes in White, red, navy, black & rose gold.
  • RAMA Feeling Alpha Necklace:  Comes in Black, Gold, Silver, Rose Gold & Copper.

The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so if you haven’t made time to stop in and grab all of the free group gifts – you really should!

Hey there FabFree!  Thank goodness it’s Friday 🙂 It’s been a long week and I can’t wait for a Saturday morning like this, with my hair up, and my apparel comfy!  The fact that almost all of this stuff is free, is a sweet, sweet weekend bonus!

Go on.. fatpack it – it’s free!

The little Maitreya fitted cropped top you see me wearing is called the Ana Top and is available as a free group gift at Via Fulo with a free group join.  This gift comes with a texture change HUD that allows for six colour options.

I couldn’t help but purchase the Karen Shorts near the gift vendor because they look so cute with this gift.  I got the black shorts, because it will match with all the colours in the HUD!

Still Unpacking FaMESHed Group Gifts!

Yes!  I am still unpacking boxes and bags of free group gifts that I picked up at FaMESHed and I came across a couple that were perfect for this look today.

  • Navy & Copper’s Black Tea Fatpack – A whole fatpack of this casual fringed updo!
  • CAE Mantra Necklace – Fearless – This Fearless printed tag style necklace comes with a texture change HUD that allows for metal options and jewel options.

Finally, FaMESHed!

Finally! FaMESHed!
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  I know I have taken photos of this scrumptious jumpsuit by APHORISM before in a tan shade previously, but I couldn’t show it off on the Fabulously Free in SL Blog because it wasn’t free… (www.flickr.com/photos/61141242@N05/40640383711).

Guess what though…

NOW you can pick up this beautiful limited edition shade of blue in the same APHORISM Eve Jumpsuit at this round of FaMESHed as a free group gift!  In fact…  there are several free group gifts at this Anniversary round of FaMESHed, and I am sure you will be seeing plenty of them here on FabFree over the next few weeks!

Aphorism Eve Jumpsuit Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Free Shoes Too!

I’m also wearing a pair of sweet Andrea Lace Up Heels in Black that I picked up as a free group gift by Narcisse at FaMESHed.  It’s a little tough to see them under these long flared pant legs, but I’ll say that they are fabulous – and work great with this particular outfit with no interference.  Not only that…  they match the black belt!  You’ll find both Maitreya and Slink fits in the box :).

The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so all of these gifts are 100% free, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away… It goes on all month.

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂
