Everybody Cut Footloose

I Just Wanna DanceWell hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, and excited about the Fabulous freebies I get to share with you. For those that aren’t already aware, the Designer Showcase event is celebrating an anniversary this month. If there’s anything we have learned from the anniversaries of other events it’s that anniversaries often mean gifts! This anniversary round of Designer Showcase is no different in that aspect. There are so many gifts, I didn’t even try to count them. That said, I of course picked a few of my personal favorites to share with you here. I can’t deny I watched the original 1984 version of Footloose yesterday evening and it completely inspired the way I chose to style this look!

Soothe1 Hundred Hoodie

This one-piece applier hoodie is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from 1 Hundred. I really like how cute this hoodie is on its own, but I can attest that it looks equally cute with a pair of jeans. There is a hood add-on for some added dimension. This gift includes classic system layers, and an all-in-one applier hud with appliers for just about every mesh body part out there (at least it seems that way). The hud works for mesh bodies, booties, and breasts. You will need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear the group tag to pick up this gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.

Entice Nails - Simple LifeEntice – Simple Life 

I just had to add in these nail appliers from Entice. They are so cute, and since I didn’t manage to get a decent up-close photo, I uploaded the vendor ad so you can see how cute these manicures are. This polish set is the FREE Designer Showcase Anniversary gift from Entice. I love the little gold studs and the matte finish. As you can see from the photo this nail applier hud will work for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails. Also, don’t forget you need to join the Designer Showcase group and wear that group tag to pick up the gifts.

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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/23/2016 – Kamiri

Kamiri DownstairsOnce again it’s Fab Free Designer Friday, and today’s featured designer is Kamiri! This shop is a ladies clothing store, with a mix of mesh and applier clothing. The best way to describe the clothing style at Kamiri would be colorful and fun! You’ll find a lot of cute flirty outfits in bright playful colors. This store is also really great for those who like applier clothing, it’s not often you find stores with so much to offer in the way of appliers. Additionally there are tons of way to score FREE or inexpensive items throughout the Kamiri store. Since there are so many gifts and goodies to be had, I split everything up into first and second floor finds. Pictured above are just the gifts and promotions I was able to find on the first floor.

As you land in the Kamiri shop, you’ll instantly see a long table full of various group gifts. Notice the bottom photo in the collage above. The Fabulously Free  in SL group exclusive gift is there as well. You’ll see it sitting next to the Fab Free sign on the table. Wear your Fab Free group tag and get this FREE gift if you haven’t already. For a preview, check out Katheryn’s post here. Just behind the gift table you’ll see a Midnight Madness board, from what I can tell there’s no target set, and everyone who clicks the board while wearing their Kamiri group tag gets the prize. The Kamiri group is FREE to join. Also downstairs, there is a promo offer of 75 lindens for a specific color version of one of Kamiri’s newest releases. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the most recent Kamiri group gifts. They are downstairs next to the circulation desk. As if that wasn’t enough there are more gifts upstairs!
Kamiri UpstairsHeading up the stairs, you’ll be greeted by 4 lucky letter boards with short wait time between letters! You’ll also notice several areas around the room that have discounted items. Then it’s hard to miss the cute little sitting area next to the stairs. You’ll want to bring a couple of friends, the sitting area is actually 3 camping chairs, each with a different prize. You’ll want to wear your Kamiri group tag for these, which is again FREE to join. Finally, you’ll see yet another long table packed with previous Kamiri group gifts. Gather your girlfriends and head over to Kamiri for lots of shopping and freebies, you won’t be disappointed!

I <3 #Subscriber Gifts

Hucci enVOGUEIt’s Sunday fun-day, I hope everyone is able to enjoy the day. I’m still in a daze over the fact that it’s already November. It just doesn’t feel quite like fall yet, and we are already inching toward winter. Maybe that’s why I found myself going with a much more “warm weather” look than I might have otherwise. It’s still so warm outside! That said, I’ll get on with it! I recently came across two subscriber gifts, one from enVOGUE and one from Hucci.

Just a few days ago, enVOGUE released a new subscriber gift named Elissa. This is a lovely center part hairstyle with full fluffy waves that lay perfectly over your shoulders. This generous gift comes in a cool ombre color pack. You’ll find pretty fades in brunettes, blonds, and reds, a few of which even have colored ends for added variety. To get this FREE gift from enVOGUE, simply head over to the main location and join the subscriber. Existing enVOGUE subscribers can find the gift in the subscriber message history.

I love that Hucci often gifts shoes. Shoes always fit! These chunky heels with peep toes and heel cutouts come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara feet, Belleza feet, and Slink feet. Also, this FREE  subscriber gift is a group only version with the zebra pattern we have seen in past gifts from Hucci. Current Hucci subscriber members can use the subscriber system to have this FREE gift redelivered.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cynful #bubbles

Cynful #bubblesHello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here sharing the freebie love with you! Today’s post features my favorite type of shirt, sweaters/sweatshirts, and my favorite style of necklace, a choker. It’s not often that the two items look well together, but I think it made it work! I hope you like them.

For me one of the best things about fall is it’s generally the beginning of sweater weather. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for me this year in real life, it’s still a tad too warm for sweaters. Thankfully I get to retreat to Second Life and enjoy the sweaters anyway. This particularly cute sweater is a FREE group gift at #bubbles. Included in the gift you’ll find this sweater in several fitmesh sizes, and body specific sizes. I think the off-the-shoulder style of this sweater from #bubbles makes it extra cute!

The choker Pru is wearing is another group gift, this time from Cynful. This particular gift is a thank-you gift for all the awesome Cynful Clothing & Co. customers and group members. The mesh choker/collar has a hud that allows you to change the wording between various empowering words like “strength” or “slay”. While using the hud you can also change the metal color of the word, as well as the color of the choker. This playful piece of jewelry is FREE to all group members, and the Cynful group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/04/2016 – Cwtch

CwtchI don’t know about everyone else, but it seems to me like Friday crept up on me this week! The entire week just seemed to fly by. Either way, I’m happy it’s Friday, and excited about today’s Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week’s shop is a new-to-me store called Cwtch. The name alone instantly had my attention, I think it sounds fun and creative. Also, Cwtch was originally called Koala after the brand’s designer, she’s re-branded her store with the Cwtch name, but you’ll still find things that use the Koala name. Not to worry, you’re still in the right place!

This quaint little shop has just a few items, most of which are decor or cute small furnishings. There is a current FREE Cwtch group gift out, pictured above on the left. The Cwtch group is FREE to join. You’ll find this FREE group gift next to the desk. It’s easy to spot the Fabulously Free group joiner on the wall opposite the Cwtch group gift. Under the colorful Fab Free sign, you’ll find another FREE gift, this one exclusive to Fab Free group members. Love had previously shown the Cwtch Fab Free exclusive gift in her blog post here. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join!  I am really looking forward to seeing with this adorable little shop has to offer in the future as it inevitably grows. That said, stop by Cwtch and check out the gifts and cute shop items.

Maybe I’m a Joker

Wasabi Pills GiftWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fabulously Free in SL Blog. I have to say the closer it gets to Halloween the more excited I get. No matter how old I am, Halloween will always be my favorite holiday, whether I dress up or not. Speaking of dressing up, I’ve got some fun freebies to share with you. This look is made up of a FREE subscriber gift from Wasabi Pills, and a FREE group gift from Dulce Secrets.

This purple and green hair with the stylized bangs and pointed buns by Wasabi Pills made me think of a female interpretation of The Joker. haha I know if I were going to dress up as The Joker for Halloween, I’d certainly go for hair like this. I like to keep things a little more on the glamorous side. To add this playful hairstyle to your collection, simply head over to Wasabi Pills, and join the subscriber outside the main entrance. If you’re already a Wasabi Pills subscriber member, like me, click the subscriber kiosk and get this FREE gift delivered from the message history.
Dulce Secrets GiftThe moment I saw this frilly embellished outfit from Dulce Secrets, I had to have it! The widely varied style elements make this FREE group gift really versatile. What makes it even more versatile is the fact that it’s 3 separate pieces. The jacket, the corset, and the skirt can all be worn separately as well as together. Each piece comes in standard mesh sizes. I love the darkly whimsical look of this outfit, and the little details in the zippers, and buckles.  You could easily dress it up to be anything in this outfit,  from a super villain to a steampunk pirate and everything in between. The Dulce Secrets group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this FREE gift at the back of the store near the Midnight Mania board.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ombre Polka Dots

Polka dotsHey There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. So I want to tell you, I’ve tried my darnedest to get a really cool in world shot of this outfit at various locations around the Second Life grid, and my laptop is just not having it this week! It’s a cranky little thing some days. I really wanted to show off this group gift dress from !gO! paired with the group gift hair from redMint as much as I could. These plain background shots will have to do. Both of these gifts are beautifully unique, hopefully my photos do them enough justice.

Starting with this messy long pony tail hairstyle from redMint, how lovely is this style? I adore the idea of a long messy hairdo, it reminds me of ’90s grunge fashion. I also really do enjoy the hair color of this FREE group gift; the group is FREE to join. The color is a pale grey with hints of blue-green, and purple. It instantly made me think of the “sterling” hair color that has been showing up all over my social media feeds. As per usual with most redMint gifts, this one comes in the color shown only. You’ll find two sizes however.

This ombre orange and purple polka-dotted dress with it’s white collar and cuffed sleeves makes me think of Wednesday Addams, and gorgeous fall sunsets. Once again, !gO! has put out a beautiful gift for their group members. This is the sort of outfit that would be perfect for a Halloween party that you didn’t want to wear a costume to, but still wanted to be festive. The dress comes in body specific sizes as well as standard mesh sizes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
