Unforgettable


Late Night

Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like I can almost taste the weekend inching nearer, I’m ready. This look is a definite weekend night out look, and it’s all thanks to free group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich, and Canimal. The dress is one of two new group gifts out at Beautiful Dirty Rich, and the hoop earrings are an older still available gift at Canimal. I personally just really liked how the two gifts look together. I hope you do too.

The Dress – I don’t mind admitting I’m having a hard time finding the words to express how much I genuinely love this group gift dress at Beautiful Dirty Rich. With this free group gift you’ll get the dress in quite a few sizes, and a texture change hud. Let me just say this hud is not only user friendly, I love all the options it gives. There are 12 pattern options for the main part of the dress, and 12 solid color choices. Each dress texture has a set of matching color choices for the metal bits, and the laces. There are also 8 additional textures for the metal parts, and the hud gives you the ability to tint the individual parts and save up-to 8 tint colors for future use. As if things couldn’t get any better, the Beautiful Dirty Rich group is also free to join, and this fabulous gift isn’t the only group gift currently available. There are several previous group gifts still out for grabs.

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

The Earrings – Sometimes hoop earrings really are the answer to your jewelry woes. I’ve actually been looking for the right outfit to wear these group gift earrings by Canimal for a while now. Though they are not a terribly recent gift, they are still available. This free group gift includes 9 pairs of earrings, each with a different word in the center of the hoops. Also included is a color change hud that lets you pick from 12 preset colors. The Canimal store group is also free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. You’ll find these hoops on the second floor to the left of the lucky letter boards.

Here are the details:

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:

Hair – TRUTH VIP Kaijah – Recent VIP Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Eyes – Buzzeri – Celestial – Wolf
Lip Gloss – Lisa Walker – L.W BUBBLEGUM GLOSS (CATWA) LIPSTICK 0.1

Psychosomatic


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
Top – Beautiful Hustler – [bh] The Prodigy Top Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Bra – Maitreya Mesh Body – Lara Mesh Bra (Included w/Maitreya Lara Body)

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!

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.

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.

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.
