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!

Goodbye Summer Romance

Goodbye Summer Romance Hello There Fab Free’rs! Isn’t it exciting, our Fab Free blog has been bubbling with activity recently and it’s been marvelous. I’m excited to see all the posts from the new additions to our Fabulous team. For now I have some fantastic September group gifts from Avi-Glam, E.Vary, and Sevyn East I’m excited to share with you, starting with this beautiful pink paisley romper from Sevyn East.

Sevyn East has a few group gifts available for FREE to all group members, and I think this summery romper is the most recent of the gifts. In true nerd form, the paisleys were the most exciting part of this romper for me. It comes in fitmesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza. Also included is a color change hud so you don’t have to wear pink if you’d rather not! The hud lets you pick between pink, teal, yellow, and violet. The Sevyn East group is FREE to join, so no reason to miss out on this or the other FREE gifts.
Freckles or Not Another FREE group gift for the month of September comes from Avi-Glam. These pretty pale green eyes are FREE to group members, and the group is FREE to join. You’l find this FREE gift on the counter in the center of the Avi-Glam main store. Included with the mesh eyes is a hud to adjust the size, and let you switch “full bright” on or off.

Finally, E.Vary has put out another beautiful skin for FREE to all their group members. This skin is named Yuli, and as you can see in the above photo, she has the option of being freckled or not freckled. Included with this gift is a classic system skin, a freckle tattoo layer, a cleavage tattoo layer, 4 shapes, and an applier hud with options for Catwa heads, Omega compatible heads, and Omega compatible bodies. The E.Vary group, like all the groups in this post, is FREE to join. Also, there are a couple of other previous group gifts to be had.  You might need to join the in-word subscriber group as well to get this gift (I joined both), which of course is also FREE. You’ll see the group gift vendors in front of the desk at the E.Vary store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

Blue Moon

Blue MoonHello Fab Free’rs and Happy Hump Day! We are half way through the week and I am very excited to share a few more gifts in honor of Second Life’s 13th birthday! This time the gifts can be found at the round of Kustom 9 that just started. Also, get excited, Lumae has a new group gift out and she’s super pretty!

I can’t believe SL has entered the teen years! Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday we were all still figuring out this wacky wonderful world. To help celebrate this birthday, several designers have placed out birthday cakes (just like the ones at Hairology) with FREE gifts at Kustom 9. Simply click the cake, and get the gift! This gorgeous long hairstyle by Mithral is one of the many FREE gifts. This mesh style includes a regular version and a “busty” version, as well as an alpha layer.

Also at Kustom 9, in the FREE cake from Eclat is this adorably delicate little necklace. I love how dainty and feminine this simple yet elegant piece of jewelry looks. This lovely gift comes in a gold version (shown) and a silver version; both can be re-sized via touch menu.

How pretty is this FREE skin from Lumae?! The Lumae group is currently 1 linden to join. With that single linden you can get this lovely skin and every applier Lumae makes to match! Not to mention the gift has lots of options in appliers and system layers including cleavage, brow color, and freckles or no freckles. Also, you can still pick up a few of the past group gifts while wearing your Lumae tag! You wont want to miss this one!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Keeping it Lowkey

Tunic Hello Hello Fab Free’rs Thanks for stopping by! Today I have what I think is a super cute look inspired by this gorgeous paisley tunic from Lowkey Shawty I stumbled across on the Marketplace. It also includes today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer from REIGN, so I want to make this post short and sweet. Additionally there’s a new event in Second Life called Addicted to Black. The name of the event makes the theme pretty self explanatory. My goth side is squealing with delight over this event. I stopped by and was happy to find a few FREE gifts, a necklace from Indulge Temptation, and a piercing from CS Tattoo.
Tunic Close I sincerely love this tunic from Lowkey Shawty. Paisleys are a guilty pleasure of mine, and it’s not often you see a good paisley pattern. I love the colors of this top, it’s bright and beautiful without being garish. It’s also long enough that you could wear it without the leggings, and honestly it would be just as cute with shorts or a skirt. The tunic is just 10 lindens on the Marketplace, and you’ll get several mesh sizes.

The shoes, the shoes, I love these platforms too, they kind of make the outfit. These platform sandals are today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer at REIGN. The shoes are just 50 lindens for today only. In the package you’ll get a different fit for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP feet, along with a color change hud with 20 color options.

Speaking of gorgeous, my photo really doesn’t do this roped bead necklace from Indulge Temptation justice. These black seed beads have an iridescent quality. The set I am wearing appears to reflect a pretty red hue from the black beads. This FREE gift at Addicted to Black also includes 2 other versions of this necklace, one with a blue hue, and one with a regular white light hue.

Also FREE at the Addicted to Black event is this horseshoe lip piercing from CS Tattoo. Sometimes I really like just a simple piercing rather than some of the more intense ones that are often seen in Second Life. This black metal piercing can be sized via touch menu. I also want to note, that the piercing did not fit my avatar initially. I think it’s intended to be unisex. However, I had no trouble re-positioning it and using the touch menu to size it down a little.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
