Fab Free Designer of the Week – E. Vary & Mangula


Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another designer of the week post. This one is a little different in that we kind of get a two for one deal! The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. 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.

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

The Bench – This adorably rustic heart bench is a free group gift at Reka. The Reka group is free to join. It has a few female sit poses, a few male sit poses, and several cuddles. I love the over all look of this sweet free gift, especially the way the bench curves toward the center. This freebie is waiting at the Reka landing point. There’s also a group joiner since you’ll need to be wearing the Reka group tag.

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).

Here are the details!

Fancy Predator


Canimal Predator Dress

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been awesome so far. I’m being mostly held hostage by Real Life, but that’s okay. At least I get to share some fabulous freebies and cheapies with you! For this post I want to tell you about two of the handful of group gifts at Canimal. I also want to tell you about the Fifty Linden Friday item at Fancy Décor.  I know what you’re thinking, it’s Saturday! Not to worry though, the Fancy Décor FLF item will be available through Sunday.

First up, this killer dress by Canimal. I say killer because, look at it with the awesome crocodile skin-like texture and the flair of the skirt. Not to mention it happens to be named the “Predator” dress. It’s not often that a dress makes me feel cute, and feisty! This group gift is free to all Canimal group members, and the Canimal group is free to join. Also, if black isn’t your color, the dress has a color change hud with several options. As for the size, I believe it is a Maitreya Lara fit only. It comes in a single unmarked mesh size.

Canimal Lingerie
Next up, a second group gift from Canimal. As I mentioned before, there are multiple group gifts at Canimal, and this sexy black lace bodysuit is one of them. I like that it’s both simple and beautiful without a lot of extra straps or frills. I believe this gift is for Maitreya body wearers only as it comes in a single mesh size. It is also free to Canimal group members. Also, I want to mention that along with the group gifts at Canimal, there are several Lucky Letter boards. You’ll find the group gifts and LL boards on the second floor of the Canimal store.

Finally, I mentioned a Fifty Linden Friday item from Fancy Décor. The PG version of the beautiful bed with white bedding and canopy posts shown in both of the above photos is the FLF item at Fancy Décor. This bed comes in either black or gold, both with white bedding. Only the PG version is 50 lindens through this Sunday. I’ve added a vendor photo below so you can get a better look.

Mermaid Monday


Mermaid Monday

Hi There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! In a perfect world the above photo shows exactly how I’d want to spend the day. I’d love to be lounging on a fluffy sofa with some pretty candles lit eating tarts from a fancy tray. Alas, it is simply not meant to be, not for real life anyway. Thank goodness for Second Life where I can at least pretend. lol Even better I can get the fluffy sofa, the pretty candles, and the plate of tarts all for free at Merak. Additionally, I can live out a little bit of my mermaid daydreams wearing these leggings from RoRo. Keep reading for more information about the free group gifts at Merak and the store closing sale at RoRo.

Merak – I need to be sure to thank Love for pointing out these awesome group gifts at Merak. Right now you can pick up several free gifts while wearing your Merak group tag including the candles, sofa, and tray of tarts shown. The candles come in 3 versions, and the sofa has single and couples poses along with some texture options for the large center pillow. The Merak group is free to join as well, making these gifts irresistible and well worth the effort. There are some additional gifts available that are not shown in my photo, so I’ve added a photo below of the group gift area at Merak.

RoRo – The news is sad but true, RoRo is closing. The store will shut its doors tomorrow, January 15th. If there’s anything you’d like from the store, now is the time. Most items are marked down to just 25 lindens. I picked up these super cute leggings for 25 lindens. They are an Omega applier only item with several color variations. At RoRo you’ll also find many past gifts out marked from 1 linden to 10 lindens each. Also, there is an assortment of gachas from different stores all marked 25 lindens each. You’ll definitely want to stop by RoRo and check things out. The below photo shows some of what you can expect to find. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

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

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Goodbye to November

A Quiet Mind
Hello Fab Free’rs! I’ve missed you! I have had such a busy week this week, and I know it’s going to get busier. It’s just that time of year, not that I am complaining. Can you believe we are saying goodbye to November and before we know it December first will be here?! Eep! I’m not ready, not yet. So now would be a good time to pick up any November group gifts you’ve yet to snag. I came across two fabulous group gifts that needed to be shared with you. First, I picked up this sexy dress from Chic Moda. Second, I picked up these pretty dangle earrings from Maxi Gossamer. Keep reading for the details!

The Dress – This slinky dress is sassy and sexy on. If you’re wanting a more cold weather style, I think it’d look adorable with a fur coat and some tall boots. You can get this cute little number in the color shown for free at Chic Moda by joining the Chic Moda group. There is a small join fee of 50 linden. This dress also has a unique feature, it has matching panties that are part of the dress, but can be made invisible using the included hud. The dress comes in a size to fit Maitreya Lara bodies, and Slink Hourglass bodies only.

The Earrings – I love jewelry that has the ability to be casual or dressy. These earrings by Maxi Gossamer definitely fit into that category. They are cute metallic chandelier style earrings that come with a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick from several solid color options. These are a free group gift for all Maxi Gossamer group members. Also, the Maxi Gossamer group is free to join. Also these cute earrings are light reactive!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Tis The Season to be Silly

Season's Silliness

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I have to admit, it’s unusual for me to be this level of festive before December 1st, but I just couldn’t resist. These cute free gifts from the Black Friday Bazaar were just too fun, and I had to share them with you. So if you’ve not made it out to the BFB (Black Friday Bazaar) yet, you really should go! These free gifts do require you to wear the Evil Bunny Hunts group tag. However, the Evil Bunny Hunts group is free to join. Keep reading for all the info about these cute holiday finds.

The Sweater – I think deep down I have a true affinity for Christmas sweaters. This cute sweater is the free BFB gift by Jelly Roll. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Glasses – Heart shaped, and glittery, these free BFB glasses by Sweet Evil were irresistible! They come with a color change hud that lets you pick \from the rainbow glitter version shown, a silver glitter, or a gold glitter. The same hud also lets you adjust things like brightness and shine.

Antlers, Nose, Puppy, and Pose! – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is one of my favorite Christmas stories, so these antlers and the glowing red nose were just what I needed for a bit of silly holiday fun. The husky pup with his matching antlers and red nose is just icing on the cake. These festive items are all included in the free BFB gift from ENIIPose. Also included is the bento pose used for the photo.

Here are the details, enjoy!
