Hello There Fab Free’rs! Sadly our weekend is coming to an end, but I’m not going to let that get me down, and you shouldn’t either. To help keep away the pending Monday blues, I say some retail therapy is in order.

First, I love this oriental style parasol by Belle Epoque. It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at the Belle Epoque main location. This FREE gift has a single hold pose, and comes with a texture change hud that lets you choose from several equally beautiful patterns. To get your copy of this fun gift, just join the Teleport Hub group, there’s a one time fee of 10 lindens, then click the gift vendor at Belle Epoch.

Next up, I think this hairstyle by Tram is uber cute. It’s an older gift, originally available at a past hair fair, but it was new to me! lol There are several group gifts available at Tram, and the group is FREE to join. This particular gift is called F623 (though the package says F719?) and it comes in this lovely pale blue grey color only. To get your copy, head over to Tram and wear your group tag, then just click the gift vendor on the table at the back of the store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Shoes and Unicorns

All About the Shoes
Happy Weekend Fab Free! I hope you’ve all been able to enjoy at least some of the weekend. My weekend has been good, and was made even better with two of my favorite things, shoes, and unicorns! Not to mention that they were both FREE group gifts for the month of June.

Sometimes all that really matters, are the shoes. This pretty pair of pastel blue heels with the ties at  the ankles are a FREE group gift by Empire available to all “Friendship: The Hangout” group members.  The shoes only come in the color shown, however there is a HUD that allows you to change the color of the sole, and the little metal accents. Friendship: The Hangout is a unique social gathering space where anyone can come to spend time with friends, and make new ones. The group is FREE to join. To get your FREE pair of Empire shoes, just join the group and click the blue “Group Gift” sign at Friendship: The Hangout.

Now about those unicorns I mentioned. This cute little tire and pillows seat is the FREE June group gift at Chez Moi. The gift has 10 sit/lay poses. I absolutely adore the unicorn fabric on the center pillow, it’ll be too cute on my patio. The Chez Moi group is FREE to join. To get your copy, just head over to Chez Moi, join the group and click the gift vendor.

Rainbows

Pride
Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by, hopefully a little retail therapy will help this Monday feel like, well, less of a Monday. As I am certain many are aware, June is Pride month. I think love is love and rainbows are Fabulous, especially when they come in the form of gifts (the rainbows, you dirty birds! *insert winky face here*). With those sweet simple sentiments in mind, I picked up the colorful June group gifts at Flowey and Stix.

First Rain, Then Rainbows

In my last post my plans had been slightly spoiled by a little rain. Since then I’ve been reminded that the rain never lasts forever, and you can’t have rainbows without a little rain. The rainbow on this cute tshirt dress from Flowey has nothing to do with rain I know, but I had to tie things in somehow! Even so, it’s good to remember those two sayings. That said, this thsirt dress is the June group gift at Flowey. It comes in several mesh sizes, and it’s FREE to all group members. There is a group join fee of 100 lindens for the Flowey group, however, I think it’s worth mentioning that I counted at least 6 previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Flat, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
Pride Makeup

Rainbow Brite

I don’t feel at all bad admitting that I’ve been waiting for just the right outfit to wear this eye makeup from Stix. I was really excited to see a look with lots of dramatic color under the eye on the lower lid. I also love the addition of little silver or gold stars. This omega applier makeup is a FREE June group gift at Stix.  In the applier hud you can pick a bright or pastel version of the shadow with either gold or silver stars. Also included in the package are classic system layers. The Stix group is currently FREE to join. Does this gift remind anyone else of Rainbow Brite? One more reason to love it in my opinion!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go AwayRain Rain Go Away…

This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.

Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.

There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.

The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.

Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Come Again Another Day…Come Again Another Day

During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Hair – +Spellbound+ Toothbrush // Natural Selection

Skin – 7 Deadly s[K]ins – Apple June GIFT – FREE Group Gift/Group is 225L to Join

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/09/2017 – Costarlos

Costarlos Exterior
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Costarlos. Yep, a menswear designer! You may be thinking this exterior shot of Costarlos looks somewhat familiar. Well that is because the Costarlos shop shares a location with BlackRose. The shops sit across a brick street from each other. I really like this shopping experience because it begins in such a pretty setting. You can even rez a bike for free and enjoy the scenery. As I’ve mentioned, Costarlos is mesh menswear designer. The style is what I would call classic, with a little bit of preppiness (that’s not a word but you get the idea!) and a little bit hipster. You’ll find everything from sports coats to graphic tees. There are even a few accessories upstairs along with a few cool looking flannels that I couldn’t help but notice.
Costarlos Offers & Gifts
The shop is clean and easy to navigate. You’ll notice a purple Fifty-Five Thursday kiosk just as you enter the shop, and three items on the wall that are all priced at 55 lindens currently. I don’t know how long these offers will be available, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like. To the left of the staircase you’ll find the FREE Costarlos Group Gifts and the exclusive Fab Free Group gift. The Costarlos group is FREE to join, as is the Fabulously Free in SL group. Carson showed the Fab Free exclusive gift in his post “Bike Break“.  You can also check out some of Carson’s other posts featuring the still available Costarlos group gifts and offers here, here, and here. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Starry Night \\ Updo – Ombre

Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/26/2017 – Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque Exterior
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a marvelous week and a very happy Friday. I’m excited about this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday featuring Belle Epoque! If you’ve never visited Belle Epoque before, you must go. The clothing style is very unique. I think of it as softly feminine with a little bit of fantasy and some definite vintage flair. I spotted everything from casual dresses to elegant gowns. Along with a variety of women’s clothing, there is a whole room of gachas to discover. As you enter the Belle Epoque main location from the beautifully landscaped entrance, you’ll be greeted with the usual information desk. Directly to the left is where you’ll find the Belle Epoque group gifts.
Belle Epoque Gifts
There are two FREE Belle Epoque group gifts. The Belle Epoque group is FREE to join as well. A bit further to the left, you’ll see the Fab Free exclusive group gift, and a gift for Teleport Hub group members. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You may recall Edi had previously blogged the exclusive FREE gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Ice Dreams.” Don’t miss out on the opportunity to pick up these lovely gifts, and explore a shop with truly unique style!
