Bein’ a Little Bit Extra, Poolside


Bein' Extra at the Pool

Hi Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in need of a pool day for weeks. Second Life to the rescue! Of course, no pool day of mine would be complete without my sweetheart. He’s the best, and he still think’s I’m pretty cute even when I’m bein’ a little extra at the pool! haha We both managed to find some great sales, and a few summer freebies to share with you as well. Keep reading for all the details.

Playfulness aside, this sweet poolside pose is part of a current sale happening at Ardent Poses. The sale ends in just a few days on April 15th, and all the sale items including couples poses, and individual pose packs are marked just 65 linden. You don’t need to wear a specific group tag, just head over to Ardent Poses and shop these fabulous bargains!

MonoKini

Speaking of sales, Beautiful Hustler is also having a big sale. Their entire second floor is marked down. Pru’s sexy mono-kini is one of the sale items marked at just 75 linden. Most of the sale items are priced at 75 linden. You’ll find a little bit of everything including lingerie, swimwear, and dresses. This bikini comes in 3 mesh sizes (Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass), and is every bit as cute from the back as it is from the front, maybe even cuter. There are also other colors available. This sale ends on April 15th, so do not wait! Also, you can wear your Beautiful Hustler group tag, (the group is free to join) and score credit toward future purchases while you shop.

My guy Blue also happens to be sporting a few summer freebies! You can pick up his hairbase hairstyle at Volkstone. This perfect-for-summer style is called “Maick”, and it is a free group gift. The group is also free to join. This freebie comes in mesh head appliers for Catwa heads, and Omega compatible heads.
Remmy Shorts

Additionally, his swim shorts are a free group gift version of the Remy shorts by Matova for the Gallant Magazine group members. The Gallant Magazine group is also free to join. Please note that only the special edition version is included in this gift. The above ad is just to give you a better look at the style. The swim trunks/undwear (SL is versatile like that!) come fitted for the Aesthetic male body, Belleza Jake, and Signature Gianni. I’m not sure how long these men’s gifts will be available, so don’t wait on them either!

{what next} Summer Drinks for SL15B

Lastly, the cute pineapple drink Pru is holding in the top photo is part of a free set of summer drinks by What Next that you can find on the Marketplace. It comes with each drink pictured in 2 sizes, and a drink dispenser in each of the shapes. The drinks have hold poses with a drinking animation. To use them as a photo prop, I just rez’d one to the ground and positioned it in Pru’s hands.

The most recent group gift set by LsR is perfect for a little lounging. Additionally, Xxxtaci has a flaming cool pair of group gift glasses to help you look cool no matter what you have planned.

They have a rose gold colored partial frame, and the cool flame shaped cuts on the side of these “cat-eye” shaped glasses make them irresistible. They are also equipped with resize scripts. If you’re going to wear glasses, they may as well look awesome. That said, it also helps these glasses are a current free group gift at Xxxtaci. The Xxxtaci group also happens to be free to join! One quick note, the vendor for these glasses does require you to pay one linden, however the 1 linden will be instantly refunded.

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Story of My Life


Awkward

Hey There Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. I feel like the sign board Pru is holding says what could be the title to Pru’s autobiography. lol Really, this sign board by Le Poppycock with the cheeky saying is one of many free gifts at The Liaison Collaborative. The current round of TLC is an anniversary round so there are several gifts either at the vendor booths or in the center of the event on little carts. In addition to this gift by Le Poppycock, Pru is wearing the free TLC gift by Canimal. Both gifts require the free-to-join TLC group tag.

The Sign Board – This free gift at TLC by Le Poppycock comes with the pose needed to hold this fun prop. The board itself has several sayings, some a bit cheeky like this one, and some not. It’s great for photos, and I would even use it as décor.

The Romper – Also a free gift at TLC, this romper by Canimal is a Maitreya fit (I believe). It comes on it’s own, unboxed. To get your copy of this gift and all the others, be sure to join the Liaison Collaborative group and wear the tag before clicking the gift boxes.

Here are the details:

Psychosomatic

Hello Fab Free. Today’s post is a little melancholy, though appropriately so. If you are, or ever were into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) you know who the man on Pru’s shirt. Keith Flint, probably best known for his work with the band Prodigy, took his own life early this week. Despite his often menacing appearance on stage, he has been described by those who knew him as a kindhearted soft-spoken gentile soul. Music will never be quite the same without his creative spark.

The designer behind the brand Beautiful Hustler has put out this top as a free group gift in tribute to the beloved singer, dancer, and front-man. The top comes in a single mesh size (not sure if it is fitted or standard), as well as mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza (all), Tonic (all), and Slink (all) mesh bodies. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join.

Also, Pru is wearing a recent limited time free group gift nose ring by PUNCH. This crescent-moon shaped piercing is technically rigged to fit the Catwa Catya head, however it fit Pru’s Genus Project Classic head without any issues. The piercing is free to all PUNCH group members, and the group is free to join.

Lastly I just wanted to put this out there, if you are feeling low, low enough that suicide sounds like a plausible option, please please please talk to someone. Anyone. Here is a link to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ .

Here are the details for this look:

Hair & Hair-base – adoness : ainia : brown
Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face
Skin – Essences Nari K
Nose Ring – PUNCH / Lune {Nose Ring} – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Now and WooW

Hey There Fab  Free! It’s time for another edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This edition is all about a shop called “Now and WooW.” This little shop is a ladies fashion boutique that carries both mesh and applier clothing as well as shoes. At Now and WooW you’ll find mostly what I would consider club-wear. However there are shoes (as I mentioned before), some casual streetwear looks, a little bit of lingerie, and even a few hairstyles. It is definitely a little bit of everything, so there’s bound to be something for almost everyone. Sorry guys!

As you enter the Now and WooW shop you’ll see the information desk right away. In this area you can join the in-world group, which is free to join. There’s even a cool studded pair of free group gift high heeled shoes waiting for you next to the desk. Also on the wall next to the desk are the posters for the store associated groups and events. In this area of the Now and WooW store is where you can pick up your free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, have no fear, the Fab Free group is free to join also. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).
