Let’s Do the Time Warp Again


After Hours

Hello There Fab Free! It’s good to be here. I feel like I have had such a weird week so far, though I couldn’t tell you what specifically was weird about it. Thankfully I have been able to do some shopping therapy, Fab Free style! Belle Epoque has this cute wiggle dress out as one of their group gifts, and I picked up a beautiful upper body tattoo inexpensively at Speakeasy for a modern pinup look. I hope you enjoy it!

The Dress – I love the mix of retro and modern present in this dress by Belle Epoque. The fabric has an almost latex like shine to it. This fun dress is a free group gift to Belle Epoque group members. The Belle Epoque group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden. This dress comes in a single Maitreya fit only.
Modern Pinup

The Tattoo – This beautiful floral upper body tattoo is just 50 lindens at the Speakeasy main store. I love how the beautiful roses come around the shoulders and connect in a bow. Also, I think the sphynx kitties near the shoulders are adorable! The tattoo comes in an Omega applier only with 3 opacity options.

Here are the details!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Good Vibes Only


Good Vibes Only

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing well. For today’s post I’m excited to share with you a completely free skin by Insol for Genus Project head wearers. Additionally, Pru is wearing the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. I really do like the message on this halter top by Meowhi. In my opinion we just don’t have time for anything other than good vibes!

The Skin – So once again Love pointed me in the direction of this gorgeous freebie. Insol has this “Mary” Genus head applier out for free. There’s no need to join the group. You can head over to their current but temporary location and purchase this gift for free. The gift is waiting on the desk in a little purple gift box. The Mary skin by Insol comes in several tones, each with or without brows. If you need body appliers for the Insol skin tones, you can purchase those for free as well. The body appliers vendor is on the wall opposite the desk. Pru is wearing the “Cinnamon” tone.
Head Appliers Included with Mary Skin: Genus Project Only
Body Appliers Available Separately: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista, Omega

The Halter Top – This pretty blue halter top is the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. The EKH is a 10 linden hunt, and at Meowhi 100% of the proceeds will go to the Education for Kenya cause. I love when shopping also has a positive purpose other than growing my wardrobe. The hunt object is a pencil. Just to give you a little hint, look low. Happy hunting!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Here are the details:

Hair – Magika [03] Mint
Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 1/13/2019 – C!L

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! You guessed it, this is another edition of “Designer of the Week” with fabulous designer C!L. This is definitely a new-to-me shop, and as C!L may well be new to you as well, we like to make a little post once a week as we have new designers joining Fabulously Free in SL to tell you about them and all they have to offer (especially the gifts!). C!L is a ladies clothing store that has a sort of “old Hollywood” feel to their clothing style. Much of what you’ll find are mesh dresses for both casual and formal occasions. The C!L shop itself is small, though I suspect that may change. Currently you will see right away the desk where you can grab a little free gift. It’s the small purple giftbox. Also, as you can see C!L is participating in the Magical Winter Hunt.

Here next to the desk is also where you can join the C!L store group. It has a one time join fee of 50 linden. The current C!L group gift is waiting just above the group joiner. It’s a pretty strapless formal gown in several colors. You can also pick up the free C!L gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in this spot. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Just click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag to get your fabulous fur coat.

Across from the desk on the opposite wall at C!L is a Midnight Mania board. The free prize is another beautiful formal gown in black. There is no group required to participate in this Midnight Mania board, and as you can see the board has a low target that does appear to fill up! Whether you are looking for a formal gown or just something pretty to wear while you shop, definitely stop by C!L and take a look at their glamorous clothing line.

Come and Get Me!


Come Get Me

Hello and Happy Friday Fab Free! Truthfully, it’s been ages since I was somewhere I could engage in a good old fashioned snowball fight. I kind of miss being able to play in the snow. Thankfully, Second Life has me covered. Here I get all the snow I want and none of the cold! Today I am excited to share with you another one of the many free gifts from the Pose Fair, and a group gift hairstyle from Pink Hustler.

Hat & Hair – On a whim I stopped by Pink Hustler and spotted this pretty hairstyle with the knitted cap. I think it’s a cute departure from the winter beanies. This hairstyle is free to Pink Hustler group members and includes 2 color change huds. One hud has solid hair color options, while the other has a mix of ombre color choices. The Pink Hustler group is 500 linden to join, however there are quite a few free group gifts to be had including hairstyles, and nails.

Pose & Props – This fun snowball fight pose is by Juxtapose, and you can get it for free at the Pose Fair. This free Pose Fair gift by Juxtapose comes with wearable snowball props as well as the single static pose. To get your copy, head over to the Pose Fair and join the free-to-join Pose Fair group. Then click the giftbox at the Juxtapose booth while wearing your group tag.

Before I Had My Coffee

Before I Had Coffee
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all survived the holidays so far. I for one do not want to see let alone eat another slice of pie for a very long time. Otherwise I’m doing pretty well. I picked up gifts by Vinyl from two different events that really go well together. I also picked up a pretty new group gift skin at PumeC. All in all, not a bad way to start the weekend!

The Shirt – This tied graphic tee is one of the free gifts I picked up by Vinyl. This gift is available for free at the Shop & Hop event. No group is needed. The top reads “Dear Santa I’m Sorry For What I Said Before I Had Coffee.” Well I do not mind admitting that there are definitely moments when I should make such an apology myself, and not just to Santa! The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is just too cute to pass up.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes – I think these crochet red chucks by Vinyl are adorable. They are a free gift available to everyone who visits the Vinyl booth at Uber. No group is needed for this gift, simply click the sign that says “XMas Gift” and the chucks will be sent to you. The shoes come in a few sizes and are every bit as cute on as they look in the photo.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

The Skin – The Skin Pru is wearing is a free group gift at PumeC. Not only does it come with a Genus head applier, but a full fat-pack of skin tones with appliers are included as well as a set of base skins. The PumeC group has a one time join fee of 399 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts still available. Also, there’s a second December group gift skin available, and a promise of a possible third December gift still to come!
Appliers Included: Body Appliers – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega /  Head Applier – Genus

Christmas Fireside

Silver and Gold
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Gosh, can you believe Christmas is almost here?! I swear I’m missing a whole week somewhere. lol The good news is if you’re still in need of some holiday decor, and a big beautiful fully decorated tree, MarmeladnyGirl has you covered with their current group gift. Also, I said before I was going to spend the month of December mostly in pajamas. Thankfully the Moondust Cart Sale booth is helping me do just that! Also for today’s post, what better way than in pajamas to show off new full body ink? This cool tattoo is by Vegas Tattoo, and won’t break the bank. Keep reading for all the info about these Fabulous finds.

Christmas Tree, Fireplace, and More – I’m always in awe of incredibly generous group gifts. The current group gift at MarmeladnyGirl is just that, incredibly generous. Not to mention these items are really nice! The gift comes with the Christmas tree shown, the fireplace with garland and twinkle lights, the Love sign, and the rug with “Merry Christmas” pillows. Also included but not pictured are a cute little snowman figure, and a plate of delicious looking cakes. Each of these items is able to be copied, and can be resized.  To get your package from MarmeladnyGirl just head over to their shop and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Pajamas – I’m not sure if this flannel and matching panties really counts as pajamas, but this is definitely something I’d wear to bed, so it counts in my book! This matching set is one of the 10 linden items at the Moondust Cart Sale booth. This cute set comes in many sizes and the items can be worn together or separately.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Tattoo – This tattoo by Vegas Tattoos is a genuinely full body tattoo, it even has hand tattoos. It is a unisex tattoo so gentlemen, you can rock this tattoo also. Each of the appliers have a dark, medium, or light option, and there are several applier types included. Even better, this tattoo is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden.

Keep Calm

Keep Calm

Hello Fab Free’rs! Does any one know what day it is? I am feeling the hectic side of the holidays and sometimes I don’t know if I am coming or going! Luckily I have you guys, some good friends, and a cup of hot tea to remind me to slow down a minute and relax. I also get to take the time to share with you more fantastic Cart Sale finds and a fun addition from the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt.

The Sweater & Boots – Even my shoes are telling me to be calm today! These boots by De’Fient Unicorn are available at The Cart Sale and the best part (in my opinion) is the message on the sole of the shoe. It reads “Keep Calm and Activate Unicorn Power.” These shoes come in Maitreya and Slink sizes, and include a color change hud with 5 preset options. Also at the De”Fient Unicorn Cart Sale booth is this pretty playful sweater dress. I chose to wear it with jeans because, baby it’s cold outside! It comes in several mesh sizes and has a texture change hud with 5 patterned/graphic options to choose from. Also, this item has an alpha layer and is suitable for classic avatars!

Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ebody, TMP, Fitmesh (XS-XL), Model M, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) Ocacin, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – This cute pink wire reindeer antler headband is one of several 5 linden Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt prizes at Oleander. Each of the 5 prizes includes 2 head accessories. There are two types of headbands, and fuzzy earmuffs to be found. You just need to find the “hidden in plain sight” little blue stars at the Oleander shop. I added a copy of the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt key for Oleander below. Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!
