The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Queen for a Day

Queenz
Oh Hello There! Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m excited you’re here. I’m also pretty darn excited about this dress, and the little clutch I found to go with it. It’s Saturday and I’m so ready for a night out, and now I’ve something sexy to wear. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get the dress and clutch without breaking your linden bank.

Queenz

I think Pru looks like a sultry Queen in this FREE group gift dress from Queenz. It is undeniably revealing, however I think it’s equally elegant looking with the long sleeves and soft dark fabric. The gown comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud with 5 color variations. At this time the Queenz group is FREE to join making this fabulous dress absolutely FREE, all you need is group space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Swallow

The one irksome thing about most gowns, no pockets. That does however give a girl an excuse to get a matching clutch! I stumbled across this cute studded heart-shaped clutch at Swallow. It’s one of their more recent group gifts, there are several currently available. This gift includes 2 of the clutches, they are identical except one attaches to the right hand and the other to the left hand. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it really does make things so much easier. There is also a color change hud with 12 color options for the main part of the clutch, 4 color options for the hardware, and 4 options for the spiked studs. Currently the Swallow group is 40 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/05/2018 – Liquid

Liquid Front Entrance
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m bringing this Fabulous Friday to a close with the Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week I have the pleasure of featuring a little shop called Liquid. As far as I am aware, Liquid is a fairly recent shop in Second Life. Their products are mostly mesh and applier eyes, makeup, and some tattoos.  While these items are predominately for the females, there are also products for the gents, and even some unisex finds. Generally speaking the appliers sold at Liquid are meant for Catwa or Lelutka head users, but I’d keep an eye out for more offerings in the future. That’s not an insider hint, just a personal opinion. One of the things I really like about Liquid is that it is a very well organized, easy-to-shop-at store. Also, all the information about Liquid, including events and group gifts can be found all in the same spot just as you enter the store.
Liquid Desk close up
As I said, everything you could need, the group joiner, subscriber, event information, it’s all right here at the desk as you enter Liquid. This is also where you’ll find the group gifts Liquid currently has to offer. To the left is the Liquid group gift, a gorgeous lipstick applier. You’ll need to join the Liquid VIP group to grab this gift, which is currently FREE to join. To the right I’m sure you recognized the Fabulously Free in SL group joiner. Those lovely blue eyes are an exclusive gift for Fab Free group members. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag! Also, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you the Fab Free group is FREE to join. The Fab Free gift is a good example of one of the unisex items at Liquid. Don’t miss out on these pretty freebies! Happy shopping Fab Free’rs.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/22/2017 – Bliss

Bliss Exterior
Happy happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week we get some Bliss, no really, this Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Bliss. The Bliss main store is on The Wash sim, which is all decked out for the winter holidays. You can even stop for a latte on your way into Bliss for a little pre-shopping pick-me-up! Bliss is a ladies clothing store with a full range of items from date night/girls night dresses to casual wear, and even some lingerie. I also noticed there is applier clothing, as well as mesh. There’s sure to be something to suit your fancy no matter what your personal style might be. Also, the purple Christmas tree in the  middle of the store is kind of awesome!
Bliss Gifts & Info
Just as you enter the Bliss store you’ll see a bright sign with the candy cane frame. It’s for the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” hunt. This hunt is kind of unique in that you can buy the hunt prize right then and there (see the hat and mittens) for 25 linden, or you can hunt for it and pay just 1 linden for the same prize.

To the left once you’re inside the shop you’ll see the Bliss counter, and just past that are the currently available group gifts. Among these gifts are the Bliss VIP group gift, a group gift for Fitmesh Fanatics, and of course the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift. For each of these groups you’ll need to wear the appropriate group tag. The Bliss VIP group is FREE to join at this time. Additionally, the Fab Free group is also FREE to join. You may even recall Love’s post “Waking Blissfully” in which she showed the current Fab Free group gift at Bliss. So don’t miss out on these FREEbie opportunities, or the fun hunt!

Happy Holidays to You

Happy Holidays
Hello Again Fab Free’rs. So I’m notoriously late getting my Christmas greeting cards in the mail. I never know what to say and I can never find my address book! This year I kept it simple and sent out a cute photo with “Merry Christmas” scrawled across the bottom. I still had to ask everyone for their address, but next year I’ll be prepared! This cute “Happy Holidays” pose by CNZ reminded me of my Christmas card, and inspired the above look. In this post I’ll tell you how to get the pose, the fancy hair, and this sweet holiday themed dress for FREE.

CNZ

As I mentioned this FREE group gift pose from CNZ inspired the look for this post. I love the chalk scrawl, and Happy Holidays is an appropriate greeting no matter which winter holiday you might be celebrating. You’ll need to join the CNZ group, which is FREE to join at this time. The gift comes with the chalk slate, and 2 versions of the static pose. Also, the vendor will require you to pay one linden and it will then send your gift and return your linden.

Lovey Dovey

These pretty curls are the most recent group gift hairstyle at Lovey Dovey. This time of year is just right for long spiral curls, I think they would look so pretty with all the festive holiday outfits. The gift includes the hairstyle in 2 sizes, and a fatpack of 6 color huds. The Lovey Dovey group is currently 100 linden to join, and there are 4 group gifts available.

Luziefee

I just love the vintage look of this FREE cute holiday dress by Luziefee. The dress is slightly fitted, mid-calf length with long cuffed bell sleeves. It also happens to be the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Luziefee. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor.  The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and has an alpha layer.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh s – XL

Winter in Blue

Winter Blues
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you some of the gifts available at the Cosmetic Fair and a FREE gift from Argrace. I have to say I really like how these gifts all came together to help create this look. I have been enjoying the pastels this winter season. I hope enjoy these gifts as much as I do.

Argrace

First thing first, who doesn’t like FREE hair? The right hairstyle can make or break a look. So in my mind there’s no such thing as too many options! This slightly wind-swept long hairstyle complete with the beanie is a FREE gift at Argrace. You may need to join the subscriber at Argrace, however no “in-world” group is required. Pru is in the Argrace subscriber, and was able to click the gift without joining a group, and it was delivered instantly. This is a fatpack gift so there are quite a few hair color options for this FREE gift. Additionally there is a color change hud for the beanie that gives you a hand-full of preset color options. Also, there’s a male version of this gift available. Carson showed the male Argrace gift in his post “Right in the Kisser.”

Next up, many of the designers participating in the current round of the Cosmetic Fair have set out FREE group gifts. You’ll need to join the Cosmetic Fair group and wear the group tag while clicking the gifts to get your copy. The Cosmetic Fair group is FREE to join.

LIVIA

This gorgeous nail polish is one of the six color combo options in the “First Snow” nail set by LIVIA. This set is a FREE gift at the Cosmetic Fair. Each color has the option of painting all your nails with the dark tip and snow flake over a glossy pastel or mixing it up with a matching glitter polish. I’ve included a copy of the original vendor ad from LIVIA below so you can see these stunning manicures /pedicures yourself.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty, Omega
LIVIA // First Snow (Cosmetic Fair GIFT)

Kokolores

Kokolores also has a FREE gift out at the Cosmetic Fair. The glittery blue eye shadow and pretty pink lip color combination are the makeup applier gift from Kokolores. I think dramatic eye makeup with a pretty subtle lip color is always in style, no matter the season or the decade!

Appliers Included: Omega, Catwa

Shiny Stuffs

I love these lashes from Shiny Stuffs, and not just because they are another FREE gift at the Cosmetic Fair. The lashes have pretty little stars nestled in them. You can use the hud that comes with your Catwa head to color the stars/lashes a different color. I kept them white because I think they look a bit like little snow-flakes caught in Pru’s lashes.

Applier Included: Catwa

Tea

Last, and never least, the FREE Cosmetic Fair gift from Tea is this dainty floral chest tattoo. Some people are not a fan of these watercolor style tattoos, I personally love them. I think there’s something delicate and super feminine about them.

Applier Included: Maitreya

Here are the details, enjoy!

Duvet Day

Duvet Day

OH!  Um…Hi Fab Free… You caught me in my pyjamas!  I’ve been having a bit of a sleep-in today, and I was just admiring my handiwork.  The house is ready to go for Christmas, and I think I deserve a little break.  And also an enormous Hot Chocolate.  You do too, so let’s get to the details!

Cozy and Cute

In my wanderings around the grid hunting high and low for freebies, I had stopped in at Nerido.  Love posted an outfit that they have out for the Women Only Hunt (You can read about it HERE), and as I was trying to get my greedy little paws on the same outfit, I came upon their free offering for the Holiday Hunt.  The little Santa-esque box held a lovely seasonal outfit, which I have to decided to cozy up in.  The Linda set is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  The top and bottom can be worn separately and can be mixed into several styles of outfit to wear during the day too!

Sweet Slippers

I mentioned yesterday in my POST that Reign is counting down to Christmas with their 12 Days of Reignmas gifts!  The Reign group is currently 1000L to join, but I’ve already received a fatpack of heels, and the gifts I’m wearing today.  On day two,  I got these ADORABLE socks and slippers.  CUTENESS OVERLOAD.  You can change the colour of the socks, as well as switch your reindeer between Blitzen and Rudolph.   I also got the delectable hot chocolate I’m sipping daintily (aka slurping noisily).  The Marshmallow hot chocolate comes in a dizzying array of mugs, including “Naughty”, “Nice”, “Grinch, Please!” and many, many more.  The “Reigndeer” slippers and socks come in several sizes, including:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Well, friends.  I am going to go dive back under the duvet, because… well, I deserve a duvet day now and then!

Fab Free Designer Friday -12/15/2017 – HelaMiyo

HelaMiyo
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here because this week the Designer Friday post is all about HelaMiyo. Generally HelaMiyo is probably best known for their static poses. The shop also has hand fans complete with poses, couples poses, eyes, and hairstyles. Yes, you read that right hair. The HelaMiyo hairstyles are very stylized, much like a lot of their static poses. Most notably there are period hairstyles, which are great for costumes, role-play, and photographs. Speaking of photographs, at the landing point for HelaMiyo, you’ll find a room with a public photo studio that is FREE for everyone to utilize.
HelaMiyo Gifts & Info
In the room with the public photo studio you’ll find several FREE or dollarbie poses for purchase. There is also a pose stand with poses that are also available as gifts in the center of the HelaMiyo store. This photo studio room at HelaMiyo is also where you’ll find the group gifts, and store info. The HelaMiyo group is FREE to join. Additionally, there are two gifts for other groups, one of which is the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Carson showed this gift in his post “Whatever.” If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, you should be! The Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

As you browse the HelaMiyo store, you’ll wanna check out the table in the room with the hairstyles. There are a few dollarbies to be had. Another spot to be sure and stop by is the sunken lounge area. This is where you’ll find a few HelaMiyo group Lucky Letter boards. Don’t miss these awesome freebies! Enjoy your weekend Fab Free.
