Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/24/2017 – Entice

Entice Main Entrance
Happy Friday Fab Free! Today’s Fabulous Designer Friday post is all about Entice. I’m pretty sure the Entice shop has been around as long if not longer than I have. They are truly a “household” name in Second Life. If you’ve never been to Entice, now is a great time to get to know this shop. They have recently redone their store, and I personally love the new layout. Entice specializes in mostly women’s mesh clothing, however they have become a one-stop-shop in that you’ll find everything from casual day wear to evening wear, lingerie, shoes, even nail appliers and hairstyles. I’m sure I’ve left something out of that list, but you get the idea! As you enter the store, you’ll see the desk with all the usual information and a few extras. There’s a subscriber group as well as the regular store group, both are FREE to join. In that first room you’ll also find the wall of information as I’ve come to call it, and as you can see in the photo below, Entice participates in several events. If you’re interested in what they have to offer at any one event, you can visit the room to the left and get a full preview including demo items when available for the current lineup of events
Entice Information & GiftsOne thing about Entice that no one can deny is how generous they are with gifts and opportunities to score FREE or inexpensive items. Just beyond the room at the entrance, after you go through a beautiful landscaped courtyard, you’ll find a second circulation desk, and a full wall of group gifts, midnight mania, and lucky boards. As I mentioned before, the Entice group is FREE to join.  This is also where you’ll find the current Fab Free exclusive group gift. You may remember this gift from Serena’s post “ Tres Joli in Rose“.  To get the Fab Free nail applier gift, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. Not a member? No problem! There is a group joiner for the Fab Free group just above the gift, and the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Is it your rez-day? Entice wants to celebrate with you! in the same room you’ll find a corner with balloons and two FREE gifts that are available only on your rez-day. There’s also a Wardrobe gift in that area. Whew, that’s a lot of gifting goin’ on! Needless to say, a trip to Entice is well worth it, you won’t be disappointed.

Join the R3VOLT

Join the R3VOLT
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m honestly not sure how this group gift, or gifts I should say, at R3VOLT escaped me for so long. As the name might suggest, R3VOLT specializes in mostly urban style casual clothing. Right now there is a wall full of FREE group gifts available to all R3VOLT  VIP group members. Even better, there are gifts for the guys as well as the gifts for the ladies! The R3VOLT group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Personally, I think the fee is worth it just for the number of gifts currently available. I’ve added a photo of the wall-o-gifts below.

I thought this hi-lo tank top at R3VOLT was really cute, and perfect now that the weather is starting to warm up down here in the south. What makes this great gift fabulous is the texture change hud. I love when clothing has this feature. The Carly top includes a hud with 15 textures (10 prints and 5 solids), standard mesh sizes, and matching alpha layers for classic avatars. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/10/2017- BlackRose

BlackRose Store frontHappy Friday Fab Free! I hope the past week has treated you well, and if not, then I hope this weekend is able to make up for it. Either way I can definitely suggest you spend some of your free time this weekend at this week’s Designer Friday feature, BlackRose. The BlackRose main location is beautifully landscaped in a tropical setting. At the landing point you’ll find the wall of information (pictured below), and a great view of the courtyard and beach beyond. There are even a few little spots to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. BlackRose sells mostly casual women’s clothing, though you’ll find some shoes and other items on the second floor.
BlackRose InfoJust inside the door is where you’ll be greeted by the most recent BlackRose group gift. Additionally the Fab Free exclusive group gift is on the table next to the BlackRose gift. Just click the little pouch while wearing your Fab Free group tag. If you missed it, Edi blogged the Fab Free exclusive gift in her post called Family Outing. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join, and the gift is also FREE.  Just around the corner from the group gifts, there are also a few Fifty Five Thursday gifts. I even picked one of them up myself! So grab your bestie and head over to BlackRose, even if it’s just to enjoy the lovely scenery!

Stay Wild Flower Child

Flower Child
Hey There Fab Free’rs I’m so glad you’re here! I’m feelin’ a little bohemian today in these fabulous group gifts I came across. I have to tell you, I also feel like I’ve been unintentionally shop-stalking Love lately. We seem to end up at the same stores for our freebie finds. I think that means we both have excellent taste! I picked up these hella cute sunnies at Scandalize not realizing Love had done some Fab Free style shopping at Scandalize herself recently. See what she found in her Ray of Sunshine post. Knowing I wanted to play up the retro feel of these over-sized sunglasses, I also picked up this halter top at Sexy Princess. Finally having always been a sucker for a cute tattoo, I just had to add in the March group gift from Aurica. Ultimately I am pretty pleased with the end result of these gifts all worn together, I hope you like them too!

Good Day Sunshine 

Sunglasses are far and away my favorite accessory. These FREE group gift sunglasses are available at Scandalize. They come in pink (shown) and red color variations and are equipped with re-size scripts for easy fitting. The Scandalize group is FREE to join. You’ll find this gift on the second floor along with several previous group gifts.

Stay Wild 

I think I must be eager for warmer weather, it seems I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed a lot of warm weather styles on the blog lately. This top from Sexy Princess called out to me. It said “Pru, you need me in your closet!” lol I live in a place where it’s hot more often than not, so halter tops are almost always in fashion.  This group gift is not only super cute, it’s completely FREE at Sexy Princess. It’s also just one of the two group gifts I saw available. The top comes in fitmesh sizes, standard mesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya Lara, and one for Slink. The Sexy Princess group is also FREE to join.

Flower Child

How cute is this blue floral tattoo from Aurica?! I love the look of the bright blue flowers. They remind me of those antique china patterns. The applier set is the FREE group gift for March at Aurica. The applier hud is set up to work with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies and hands. There’s also a note in the package about how to get the tattoo to work with bento hands. The Aurica group is currently FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available. Included among the still available gifts is the New Years Zen post I did at the beginning of the year.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Besom-e kind of Hipster

Sunglasses
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll tell you how I’ve spent my Sunday, shopping! The Hipster Fair is happening and it ends March 3rd. Most of the designers have set out an inexpensive gift for the event. While you shop, look for the pink and green mustaches at each booth. The pink gifts are women’s only, and the green gifts are male or unisex gifts. Each designer set the cost of their gift, in my experience most gifts were just 1 linden, while some were FREE, and others were as much as 5 lindens. I probably picked up at least 20 gifts! There were so many good items that I’ll be doing a second post with several more Hipster Fair freebies and cheapies. That said I also want to let you know about a special sales event at Besom.

Now, the most urgent aspect of the sale at Besom is that today is the last day! I wish I had caught wind of the sale sooner. Through the end of the day today (I assume, the sale is a “weekend” sale) all individual hair packs at Besom are marked 50 lindens. The purpose of the sale is to help raise funds for the medical bills of an adorable cat named Spirit. I’m not often one to promote causes, because I’m partly a cynical skeptic, but if ever there was a reason to feed my love of hair, the life of a kitty is just the one. Either way, you can’t beat 50 lindens for the quality hairstyles at Besom. The fact that the purchase will likely be helping a beloved pet is just the icing on the cake!

Normally I would go into a little bit of detail about each of the items in the post, however since there are several items in this post and a time sensitivity, I’ll just give you the basics.  Thanks in advance for understanding.  ❤

Hair – *Besom~Weekend Warrior *Essentials* – 50L – Last Day! (Sunday 2/26) 

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Applier) – champagne

FabFree Designer Friday – 02/24/2017 – Ecko

Ecko Storefront
Good Evening Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday features a shop called Ecko. I was a little surprised that Ecko is such a new shop in Second Life. The clothing at Ecko has a cute casual style that would appeal to almost anyone. Ecko sells mainly women’s mesh and applier clothing. You’ll also find some fun accessories. At the landing point just outside the entrance you’ll be greeted by a few shop pets, and the subscriber kiosk. You’ll want to be sure to join the subscriber to keep up-to-date on all things Ecko, also subscriber members have access to 2 FREE gifts inside the store.
Ecko Info
Just inside the entrance, there’s a kiosk with a weekly special purchase for just 50 lindens. It also appears there are a limited number of this special purchase. Once inside if you browse your way to the right side of the shop you’ll find 2 FREE gifts for subscribers. Since you joined the Ecko subscriber on the way in, just click the vendors and your FREE gifts will be delivered to you. The right side of the shop is also where you’ll find the “wall of information” as I have come to call similar spots in other shops. Here you’ll find all the information about store affiliations and current/upcoming events and hunts. This is also where you’ll find Ecko’s exclusive Fab Free group gift. This cute little dress was previously shown on the Fab Free blog by Kathryn. Make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick up this FREE gift.  There are also a few other group gifts. Take a moment to stop by  Ecko and do a little shopping, perhaps a little hunting, and a little freebie grabbing!

Nameless Unicorn

Unicorns
Well Hello There, and happy Hump Day Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way to the weekend. Speaking of weekends, I am glad to be back from my long weekend away. I always feel like I’ve been gone for ages when I am unable to be online for a few days at a time. That said, I’m eager to share with you all the info about this o-m-g cute dress from Stix and this sloppy girl hairstyle from MOON.

I Know You.

It’s not a secret that I have a love for unicorns. It’s something the creator of Stix, Pixy Snook and I have in common. My girlish side that still loves unicorns, glitter, pink, and rainbows squealed with glee upon seeing this mesh dress in the Stix group notices. As shown above, this simple snug little dress comes with a texture change hud that gives you five equally adorable options. I love them all but if forced to choose, the zombicorn version is my favorite. Don’t ask me why, I don’t have an answer! lol The dress comes in a fitted mesh size for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. How do you get this awesome FREE group gift? Join the Stix (Pixy Stix) group, it’s FREE to join and either check the past notices or head over the Stix main location.

Nameless
If I Were Blind, I’d Know What You Are.

While going through the ton of notices I had from being away over the weekend, I spotted a notice from MOON about a new group gift. More girlish excitement ensued, because gift hair! Yep, I’m easily excited, and not at all ashamed of that fact. Needless to say I ran over to MOON and threw on my group tag. This hairstyle is a group exclusive sultry sloppy pony with lots of long strands. The FREE group gift comes in a fat-pack of color huds, so no matter which color you prefer, or if you like to change things up, you’re covered. The MOON group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. I think this “Nameless” hair is worth the fee alone, however you’ll find several other previous group gifts still available as well.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Moon. Hair //  – Nameless – FREE Group Gift/Group is 100L to Join

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/17/2017 – MOoH

MOoH
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs and welcome to this weeks edition of Fab Free Designer Friday! This week’s shop is MOoH and I have to start by saying wow, this store has grown so much in the last few years. I can recall when MOoH was still a very young store with a hand-full of items. Now they have an enormous main store! I’m proud to see how far this cute shop has come. The above photo shows the entrance at the right half of the store. Yes I said right half! haha You’ll find information boards about various events and affiliations here. Inside you’ll find tons of cute quality ladies clothing in styles to suit everyday looks to formals, and most things in between. While clothing does seem to be the main focus at MOoH, there are also shoes and accessories, plus a courtyard full of gachas. You’ll notice the center gacha yard, along with a row of event information on art easels at the MOoH landing point.
More MOoH
After you’ve browsed your way through the gacha machines, which I dare you to not play, you’ll be met with another cutely decorated area of gifts and information. Here there’s a MOoH subscriber so you can stay informed without taking up a group slot. Additionally there is a re-delivery terminal, and all kinds of store information. The best info has to be the group gift info however. You should see the exclusive Fab Free group gift right away. It’s right next to that rainbow Fab Free group joiner. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. Sheidy blogged the super cute gift in her recent post here. You’ll also find other group gifts and the MOoH shop group gifts in this cute corner. The MOoH group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the benefits are almost too numerous to list! There is of course the group gift, which you’ll need your MOoH group tag for and there’s the monthly gift gift card raffle. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the chance to score a 500 linden gift card! Each month there are also group only discounts, a 150 linden gift card gift, there are group only Lucky Chairs, and group members get a 10% discount on the purchase of store gift cards. I’m almost certain I’ve left something off that lengthy list. I definitely encourage you to take the time to explore the MOoH store for yourself, even if it’s just to oogle all the cute decor and window-shop, you won’t be disappointed!
