Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs. For this post I’ve got some January group gifts to share with you that have me feelin’ foxy. Maai and MINIMAL both have free group gifts for the month of January that you will not want to miss. Keep reading for the details and more of my banter.

Maai 

Yes, that little fox pun was absolutely intended. I do think there’s sometimes a stigma around being an adult and wearing cutely patterned or styled clothing. I however don’t particularly care for them. I love the little fox faces on this slip of a dress from Maai. Truth be told when I put this dress on I got that Jimi Hendrix song stuck in my mind. “…And you know, you’re a sweet little lovemaker, Foxy…”

The Maai group is free to join, making this group gift completely free as well. All you need is a group space.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Kupra, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Alpha Layer also included

JANUARY GROUP GIFT

MINIMAL

I’ve picked up several of the MINIMAL group gifts in the past, but I think this January group gift backdrop is my favorite. It has such a feeling to it that I’m not sure how to describe. It’s simple enough to serve as a setting for just about any sort of scene, and has the right feel for something modern romantic or old-world fantasy.

The MINIMAL group has a join fee of 250 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well as this January 2021 group gift.

Winter Prima Donna

Coming soon to Fab Free

There’s nothing I love more than an elegant gown and it looks even more majestic in the snow! I will admit, though, I would never wear such a beautiful dress out in the cold in real life but it does look splendid in SL.

A Holiday Hunt at Poet’s Heart

Poet’s Heart has a Holiday Hunt out at the moment, and it’s completely free! You are looking for the little green fairy hats hunt item (seen below in the vendor advertisement). The hunt ends on January 3rd, so you only have 2 days to collect these lovely gowns! There are 8 hunt prizes in total. I am currently wearing the Prima Donna Gown and all the gowns are sized for Maitreya bodies only.

Poet's Heart Holiday Hunt

Here are the hints to help you collect your free hunt gifts…

Hmm.. I wonder if Santa left something for me?

⚫ David Eddings wrote about me in the Elenium and the Tamuli

⚫ Within Temptation sings about this irish lass

⚫ I’m so cheap, yet not completely free

⚫ When a dress just ain’t enough…

⚫ Toss a coin to your witcher…

⚫ I might be a fan of Tobias Forge

⚫ Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

 

Make sure you grab all the free group gifts at Poet’s Heart while you are there! The group is free to join. There are some beautiful elegant gowns and roleplay items out for all.

Update: I have discovered that there is also a free gift, separate from the hunt, at Poet’s Heart under the tree. Just click the present box that is on sale for 0L and then you have another freebie! Yay!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Dreaming of More Christmas on Boxing Day

una_159 (2)
Hey, Fab Free! Are you still feeling Christmassy? I know I am, and I have more Christmas outfits than I know what to do
with. I will be showing you a lovely free Christmas dress, as well as a jewelry set you can pick up for only 1 Linden.

Dreaming of a white Christmas…

Even if you didn’t get the white Christmas you were dreaming of, Dreams has a wonderful Christmas dress out for you all. The Dreams VIP group is currently free to join. There are 2 free dresses out for women and a free Christmas sweater for men! Just look for the Christmas tree in the store and you will find the gifts there. Time to deck the halls on boxing day with these sweet finds! Dreams is normally a paid group, so jump in this group and grab all the gifts in the gift room for free!

The jewels…

This lovely jewelry set I have on is for M&M Style. I got it at the front of the store and it is part of the Fleur gift package. To get the gift, I needed to join the M&M Style group which only costs 1 Linden to join. Like many of M&M Style‘s outfits, it comes with shoes, an outfit (in this case, a jumpsuit), and jewelry. It is a full set and one of the reasons I love this designer’s clothes is because you get so many things wrapped in one box that match so well together. I posted a picture of the full outfit below so you can see what the jumpsuit and shoes look like in the package! You will also be able to grab a few more gifts by joining the group. There are lucky letter boards upstairs if you need even more freebies.

Have a great Boxing Day, Fab Free!

In the Bright of the Day

In the Bright of Day

Sometimes I swear I am the embodiment of one of those memes you sometimes see where there’s a girly princess on one side and a broody goth type on the other, and it suggests that each is one side of the same person. I identify with that meme so darn much! So here we are, dark and broody, but loving the bright wintery holiday season. Speaking of the up-coming holiday, this feather trimmed little black dress is a free group gift at COCO that would be amazing for a swanky Christmas party. Also, if you’ve gone and picked up the free Lelutka Lilly head Aline blogged here, you might want to check out the 60L Happy Weekend Sale at head applier/bom layer at Eudora Beauty. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about both. After all, what better way to start the weekend than with a little retail therapy.

COCO

I love this dress by COCO. It’s simple, it’s elegant, and the feathered hemline is a welcome departure from the fur trim that is ever popular this time of year. It is also absolutely free with the COCO group tag. You can join the COCO store group for free, and pick up a few of the past group gifts as well if you haven’t already.

Sizes Included:  Maitreya (Lara/Petite), Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy

Eudora Beauty

Eudora Beauty has a gorgeous bom layer and Lelutka applier skin for the Lelutka Lilly gift head that you can get for just 60 linden per skin tone during the 60L Happy Weekend Sale this weekend only. The “Lillian” skin at Eudora Beauty is a head applier/bom layer only. You’ll need to purchase the body applier/layer separately. Which given the full price of skins, is still one heck of a deal! This skin will also work with any of the Lelutka Evolution heads. Also, I used the browless option that is included with this skin and wore one of the brow options included in the HUD for the Lelutka Lilly head.

A Bunch of Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

“My darling girl when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.” – Aunt Francis, Practical Magic

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free! I am loving some of the October group gifts I’ve come across recently. It’s always thrilling to find freebies that I feel match my personal style when I wear them. For this post I found just that in the free October group gifts from Eternal Limited, POUT!, and Belleposes.

Eternal Limited

I love the playfully witchy print of this dress by Eternal Limited. I was so excited to find this cute dress is their free group gift for October. The group is also free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

POUT!

This time of year also gives the opportunity to wear some creative and beautiful makeup looks. I love the bold colors and the stitch detail of this eye makeup by POUT!. It is also a free group gift for the month of October. The POUT! group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Catwa BOM Layers, Genus BOM Layers, Catwa Applier, Genus Applier, Lelutka Evo Applier
[POUT!] Monster Shadow - Group Gift

Belleposes

Lastly, it just wouldn’t be October in Second Life without some spooky poses for taking all the fun Halloween photos. The October (from 2018, but still available) group gift at Belleposes is a fun set of 3 witchy poses. Belleposes is free to join as well.

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

YS&YS @Hallowen Shop & Hophttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugarplum/150/70/52

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

Luas @Halloween Shop & Hop http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurelian/165/28/53

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Big Love

Big Love

Love is an adventure. It can make you feel 50 feet tall, and capable of anything. Perhaps that’s why I felt a bit bold and adventuresome while wearing this dress by DM. It’s the perfect casual dress, comfortable, not too short, but not too long, and just the right mix of edgy and cute.

Lucky for us this dress also happens to be a free group gift at DM. The gift includes a color change hud with a few solid color options for the main part of the dress. The DM group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

Also, my starry violet eyes are from a mid-week “Golden Days Weekly Sales” sale offer at Madame Noir. Blue told me about the sale, and I of course had to check it out. Madame Noir has two sets of beautifully detailed eyes on sale for 55 lindens from now until the 25th. You will need to join the “Golden Days Weekly Sales” group to use the vendor. The group is free to join.

I Heart Kittens

Fabfree Post: I heart Kittens

Furbabies are fun

I have recently adopted a cute little black kitten in real life. She is full of crazy fun energy all day and night!! She follows me around the house and sleeps on me whenever I sit down for a moment. Her little mew is a cute reminder of how we were all small once, about three days into her being in her new home with my rl family she started purring and coming out more. She’s grown to understand that even though it’s a new place with new people we are here to make sure her little kitten life is purrrfect.

As I am typing this out she’s trying to play with me by pawing at my fingers, tapping my arm and trying to eat the words on the screen ^^ which makes it hard to do anything recently because anytime I start to type I have to stop and laugh. It’s taken me 12 attempts to type this entire paragraph out and Miss Mazikeen wants to play, so I must get to the details sooner than later.

Candy Kitten has a new free gift out for Kitty Lovers! There’s no group needed for you to snag this cute dress either! Just tp to the shop, walk to the back where the group gift and lucky letter boards are, and it’s right there to the left! The free gift comes with a hud and gives you 10 pattern choices featuring different cats. So cute and cuddly you will want to sleep wearing this dress every night.

Fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy
