Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentine’s Day Kitty Style

 

Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentines' Day Kitty Style

I know it’s a bit early for Valentine’s day, and some of you may be either super excited about V-day or dreading it, but this group gift from Candy Kitten has gotten me in the mood for love and romance! It’s the “call me baby dress” with the “LOVE” HUD made especially for Candy Kitten VIP members. It includes patterns of hearts, kisses and pink polka dot patterns- it’s perfect for the upcoming month of February. Right now, you can grab this group gift in their main store, as well as the wonderfully cute “Dolly Heels” I am wearing and the simple panties fatpack I am hiding underneath! The heels and the panties also come with a colour hud, which you can use to change the colour of the frills and the bows on the heels. 

Candy Kitten VIP

Candy Kitten has wonderful offers, group gifts and giftcards that rotate regularly. Their VIP group costs 200 Linden to join, but the perks are totally worth it! Group members have access to exclusive gifts, gift cards which are given out on holidays and special occasions, and a weekly 1,000 L raffle board.  As the group gifts regularly change in the Candy Kitten group, go quickly to grab these gifts and make sure to regularly check the group’s notices for future freebies!

Sleepy Kitty

I’m also snuggled up on the new bed I got from Merak as a group gift, which you can claim for free with their free group. The bed is available in both adult and PG options to meet your needs. I’m a happy kitty curled up in my bed with these finds!

Have fun freebie hunting, Fab Free!

Christmas Cheer

Holiday Cheer

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been full of holiday cheer thus far. I managed to find a moment to myself, and took a moment to enjoy some crisp winter air and a spiked eggnog, in a reindeer cup no less. Despite the cold, my drink and my sweater kept me warm, and my holiday manicure kept me feelin’ cute in the moment. Each of those items, sweater, drink, and nail polish are all current group or event gifts. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about them, or you can scroll to the end for full credits. Stay warm Fab Free!

Fashionably Dead 

This cute holiday sweater is the most recent group gift at Fashionably Dead. There are a few past group gifts available as well. The sweater comes in a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 7 color choices. The Fashionably Dead group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

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

Half+Deer

My adorable reindeer cup is the free gift at Shop & Hop by Half+Deer. It has sparkly antlers, and comes with multiple color options. Also, the cup has a drinking animation. I love the cute details. All you need to do to get yours is go to the Half+Deer booth at the Shop & Hop event and click the gift vendor.

ZOZ 

Finally, I love the choice of a holiday manicure that isn’t green or red. My shiny dark grey snowflake manicure is thanks to the free Shop & Hop gift by ZOZ. This applier manicure set has 12 total beautifully glossy colors to choose from, including the traditional green, and red. Like the other Shop & Hop gifts, to get your copy of this free gift just find the ZOZ booth at the event and click the gift vendor.

The Last Supper

The Last Supper

“Oh Storax Tree! Oh Strax Tree! The Fab Free gift and kitty cats are lovey!” – sang to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree.”

Happy weekend Fab Free! Sometimes the freebies and cheapies you find are worth singing about, you know? It also helps that the Strax Tree name really lends itself well to Christmas carols. haha That said, I did pick up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift, and one of the 10 linden items from The Cart Sale by Storax Tree. Keep reading for more details.

It also has resize scripts, and several animated sits, some of which have props. The accent pillow also changes texture when clicked. To get this free gift just head to Storax Tree and click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag. Need a Fab Free group tag?

The Cart Sale     

Storax Tree has lots of seriously discounted goodies at The Cart Sale. I could not resist picking up the pair of cats shown in my photo. Titled “Feline Autumn Meeting” these cats are just 10 linden and include a patch of grass and pebbles so they settle nicely into an outdoor or otherwise rustic setting. They can also be purchased in several colors/fur patterns. Like the furniture, these little guys have resize scripts too. Don’t miss out on these, for just 10 linden at The Cart Sale they are too cute to pass up.

Kiss Me

Kiss Me

Have you been to The Season’s Story yet? There are so many free gifts at this the 6th and final round of The Seasons Story event. It’s sad to see another event go, but I’m still excited about the great gifts. For this post I picked the free TSS gifts by Evermore, Yasum, Vincue, and Dazed. For details about each gift keep reading, otherwise scroll down to get full credits. Thanks Fab Free’rs!

Evermore

These Kitty ears by Evermore are just too cute. I love the texture, the black and orange with little white accents is perfect for a Halloween cat. They are animated, and they come in 3 sizes. Also, they are absolutely free at The Seasons Story, no group needed.

Yasum

The perfect black lip is nice to have year-round however it is essential for the Halloween season. Yasum has a pretty velvet matte lip applier for Catwa heads for free at The Seasons Story. What makes this applier set even better is there are several options for little phrases, or even a few graphic designs. I chose “Kiss Me” because who doesn’t love a good smooch!

Vincue

No Halloween Kitten would be complete without this adorable collar by Vincue. It’s really pretty and detailed. This free gift at The Seasons Story comes in several sizes so it fits perfectly, the option of gold or silver for the metal bits, and has a color change hud for the fabric, ribbon, and pom poms with quite a few choices for each. Also, I want to point out that for this photo I am not actually wearing the collar, but rather had rez’d it and positioned it so that it showed best with the pose I’m using. This collar does not sit askew.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (non specific)

Dazed

Lastly, my perfectly manicured claws are thanks to the free gift a The Seasons Story by Dazed. They are a classic solid black manicure fit for Maitreya mesh hands.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Legendaire

 

Hello Fab Free! It’s time for another edition of “Fab Free Designer of the Week.” For this post we are happy to feature Legendaire. I have to say, shopping at Legendaire feels almost like an event. There are so many things happening, it’s a party, and I for one am here for it! Legendaire specializes mostly in women’s fashion, including shoes, and accessories. The style is very feminine with pretty prints and bright colors. There’s also a small section of menswear on the second floor.  There are also a few non-clothing items as an example I even saw a car for sale! 

Before you head upstairs however, there are freebies and group gifts waiting for you just inside the Legendaire entrance. Right inside there are two tables with free gifts. These gifts are completely free, no group needed. Then on one of the square pillars you’ll see all the store affiliated groups and their gifts. Some of which are also free with the required group tag. This is where you’ll find the Fab Free group gift at Legendaire for example. Just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the little black gift bag with the Fab Free sign on it. The Fab Free group is of course free to join.

On the side of the same pillar you’ll find two of the Legendaire group gifts. The Legendaire group has a one-time join fee of 49 linden. Additionally you’ll see a teleporter that will take you to the Legendaire outlet/discount area with even more Legendaire group gifts and discounted items.

Uber Elegant


Uber Elegant

If you haven’t made it to Uber yet, I highly suggest going. I know we’ve shown several of the fashion related gifts here on the blog from this birthday round of Uber. So today I thought I’d show a few of the furniture and décor freebies. There are actually quite a few décor items, and some furniture pieces to be had for free at Uber. I picked a handful of the ones I felt went well together. Keep reading for a little info about each one.

Foxwood

The adorable purple Love birds in their gilded cage are the free Uber Bday gift by Foxwood. I can’t get over how cute they are. The gift includes the caged pair shown, and a little solo Love bird that will perch on your shoulder when worn, or wherever you place it.

Di’Cor

The gorgeous wall clock is the free gift at Uber from Di’Cor. Not only does it look elegant, it actually tells the time, SLT of course. It also has that mashup I like of retro and modern styles together.

Llorisen

The lacquered console table is the free Happy Birthday Uber gift by Llorisen. It has a sleek modern look that pairs well with most décor. It also has a color change menu when touched with 5 solid color choices.

Kraftwork

The free gift at Uber by Kraftwork is the sweet little pop-up book sitting on the table. I love the playful colors. It says this is a “children’s” popup book, but I like it as cute décor for a lived-in home look too.

Second Spaces

The pale teal file boxes are the free Uber gift by Second Spaces. The gift includes these pretty little file boxes in the 3 side by side version shown, a group of 5, and a stack of 3. Also, these office décor file boxes are copy so you can set out multiples.

P.S. The backdrop used for this photo is a group gift at Foxcity. The Foxcity group has a join fee of 550 linden and there are quite a few group gift poses and backdrops available. 

P.S.S. I mentioned this before, but I want to mention it again. One of the huge number of gifts at Uber does require the Uber event group tag. I cannot recall which one. The Uber group is however free to join. Happy Shopping!

The eyes include a system layer set, appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega compatible eyes, and a set of mesh eyes with a hud to control things like size.

Riot

I love this sweet top with all the kawaii junk food items by Riot. It’s their free Uber B-day gift. This fun tied top comes in the following sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

P.S. I do want to say that one of the many many many free gifts I picked up at Uber did require you to wear the Uber event group tag. However I cannot recall which one! lol sorry. The group is free to join though, so it won’t cost you anything, just a temporary group slot.
