Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

New Years Zen

ZenWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all well, I’m glad you’re here. I want to share with you one of my hopes for this shiny new year. While there are lots of things I am going to work toward in my 2017, at the top of the list is a little personal zen. I believe that intuition and self reflection are important. I intend to be more accepting of myself, rather than remain often at war. I want to be genuinely happier, and bring happiness to others. That’s not to say that I am unhappy, I consider myself to be very fortunate in many ways. However, I think there’s always room for improvement! If you don’t already have all the happiness you could possibly want in your own lives, I wish that happiness finds you also. Truthfully I think everyone can benefit from a little personal zen. Okay I’ve got all the sentiment out of my system, now for the freebies!

Aurica Store – Bileya Tattoo 

Starting with this gorgeous pink henna style mandala type tattoo. I’m not often into pink, though I find myself appreciating it more lately, I still love this tattoo from Aurica. It’s a FREE gift listed on the Marketplace. Included in this gift from Aurica is an applier only. The applier hud will work for Omega compatible bodies, Maitreya Lara, Slink bodies, and TMP bodies. I think the mandala type design is perfect for the new year. You may or may not know this, but the mandala is said to represent a “…dreamers search for completeness and self-unity.”

Cureless – Moonlight Jewels

Cureless recently sent out a FREE group gift. This bindi type crescent moon is beautiful. The textures have an almost iridescent quality. This gift from Cureless includes a color change hud with a ton of color options. I probably should have counted them, but trust me, there are a lot! The Cureless group is FREE to join. To get the gift, just join the group and check the past notices. Hurry though, notices do not stay available forever. I think I’ll be wearing this little jewel often.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Look to the Future

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Contemplation

ContemplationWell Hello Fab Free! It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to be online, but I am very happy to be back and I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed any and all winter festivities they celebrated. That said, it’s time you ventured through We Love Role Play if you haven’t already.  The current round of We ❤ RP is particularly special because there is a Christmas tree with FREE gifts piled under it. You will need to join the We ❤ RP group and wear the tag to get the gifts, however the group is FREE to join.

As far as I am concerned you’re never too old to play dress up, or to have a wild imagination. There were a few of the FREE We ❤ RP gifts specifically that called out to me. I just had to wear the armor from Belle Epoque, and the headpiece from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Perhaps the fact that I’ve recently started watching “The 100” again on Netflix had some influence as well. As for the elf ears, I just like how they look, I feel like a determined warrior elf: beautiful and strong.

Wicca’s Wardrobe Gift at We ❤ RP

This sturdy yet elegant looking headpiece is the FREE gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe at We ❤ RP. The textures of the Amara Headpiece are beautiful, and the face chains fit easily over my mesh head without any adjusting. You can size this mesh accessory with the built in resize scripts. Look for this FREE gift under the Christmas Tree at We ❤ RP.

Belle Epoque Gift at We ❤ RP 

The armor Pru is wearing as her warrior elf self is the FREE gift from Belle Epoque at We ❤ RP. This armor is beautifully done and moves well with the Maitreya Lara body. The Callie Armor is fully mesh and meant to be born with the Maitreya Lara body. Also, it comes in a gold version as well as the silver version shown.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Spirit of ChristmasIt’s almost Christmas Fab Free!! Are you ready? I am never ready. LOL However I look and feel one step closer with an irresistibly cute group gift from !gO!, a FREE skin from Essences, and a winter-y gacha from LODE. I feel like a mythical Christmas spirit or one of Santa’s magical elves. Hopefully with all the Christmas spirit I’ll feel more like wrapping presents and baking goodies later. For now, I’ll get to the details!

LODE Fir Hair Wreath

This gorgeous highly detailed hair wreath is a gacha from LODE. You’ll find this gacha machine to the left as you enter the LODE main store. As with most of the gacha machines at LODE this one is just 60 lindens per play. Not only is this hair wreath gorgeous, it’s also able to be sized with a touch menu. There are several equally beautiful hair accessories to be won, even one with some adorable snowmen!

A Little Sass

A Little Sass

Sass December Group Gift 

Hello Again Fab Free’rs I trust you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and are excited it’s Monday, right?! No? Okay so maybe no one is excited for Mondays, but we are excited about freebies and this one is definitely worth some excitement. Not too long ago while doing a little exploring (wandering aimlessly) I stumbled over a shop called Sass. I could really just end this post there, but I’ll give you a bit more information. This adorable plaid bra and pantie set is the December group gift at Sass and it was just too pretty to resist. Did I mention the plaid? Plaid, like paisley is an often irresistable pattern for me. The gift is absolutely FREE, you will need to get “Sassified” by joining the Sass group. The group is FREE to join. This gift at Sass includes an omega applier only. Each piece, the top, bottom, and matching stockings (not shown) can be worn together or separately. Also, you’ll notice there are several other FREE group gifts available.

Cynful Cereal Killer

Cereal KillerHello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.

Anxiety Group Gift Choker 

The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.

Cereal Killer 1

Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress

Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

It’s a Red Sweater Day

Red Sweater DayToday was definitely a big cozy sweater day for me. I wanted nothing more than to curl up on my sofa, have some coffee or maybe some warm tea and watch movies… all day. This sweater from BlackRose is exactly the type of sweater I envision for these sort of days. What better hairstyle than this one by Runaway to go with an over-sized sweater?! I love bun hairstyles because I think they have the effect of “look how cute my hair is” without much effort.

To get this red knit sweater by BlackRose for FREE, wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the BlackRose main store. Once inside, you’ll see a little gift table on the wall to the left. While wearing your Fab Free group tag, click the little gift bag on the shelf and your FREE gift will be delivered to you. This baggy, cowl necked sweater comes in standard mesh sizes.

To complete the look, you’ll need this FREE hairstyle from Runaway as well. You can pick up this FREE gift at the current round of Hairology. As it’s been mentioned before, Hairology is celebrating their first anniversary. The event is a year old, and you’ll find several gifts that are freebies and dollarbies. Included with this gift hairstyle is an “essentials” color change hud that has a nice variety of hair colors.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Circa 1998

Circa 1998
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy the past weekend. I personally have been thankful for the reprieve from Real Life that Second Life offers. As it’s been mentioned multiple times already, sweater season is in full swing, and I’m never tired of hearing that. If given a choice, I’ll take sweater weather over any other type of weather! With that in mind, I was out shopping recently and came across a group gift at The Little Bat that I hadn’t seen before. This group gift sweater was the inspiration for this look, instant ’90s nostalgia for this girl! A grunge rock anthem playing in my mind I found a lace choker from CHAIN on the Marketplace, and finished the look with a gift hairstyle by Alice Project that I picked up at Hairology.

This over-sized black sweater with plaid accents is exactly the kind of sweater I want to wear with some leggings while I curl up, have a cup of coffee, and read a book or binge watch my favorite tv show. I also think it’s totally cute with jeans and some boots. It’s the perfect “Netflix and Chill” kind of sweater. The best part its, it’s FREE at The Little Bat, just gotta join the group and wear your tag. The Little Bat group is FREE to join. With the sweater you’ll also get a color change hud that allows you to choose between a few color options to change the color of the plaid parts of the sweater.

With the plunging neckline of my sweater, and that sort of ’90s style, I wanted to wear a choker style necklace. CHAIN has this perfect pretty lace choker available for 1 linden on the Marketplace. I think the detail of this choker is beautiful. Also, it has a color change hud that will let you change the lace from black to white, and the choker has resize scripts so you can adjust the size by clicking it. I have to admit, I kinda want to wear this choker with everything!

Finally, I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Hairology is celebrating their first Anniversary round. As a bonus, most of the participating designers have FREE or dollarbie gifts out to celebrate! The hair pictured is one of two gift hairstyles from Alice Project. The Alice project gift is FREE. In their gift you’ll get two hairstyles, Kelly (shown), and Nicki II, both styles have a “winter compilation” color change hud with a generous number of options. I think just about everyone would be able to find a hair color in the hud that suited their personal style. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on this or the other gifts at Hairology.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
