Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.

Pink Like A Flamingo

Pink Like A Flamingo
Happy Tuesday Fab Free! Once again adorable pink flamingos have found their way onto the Fab Free blog. I think this must be the summer of flamingos. Flamingo summer maybe? Either way I dig it! These cute short shorts are a new group gift at zOOm. You also might recall I mentioned a free group gift hairstyle at Letituier in my previous post “See No Evil.” This pink and blonde dip dyed hairstyle is it! Lastly, I added this cute little polka-dotted dollarbie top from Teepa to complete the look. I hope you like it!

The Hair – This fun summer hairstyle is a free group gift at Letituier. The Letituier group is free to join at this time, so don’t miss out. Also if you haven’t shopped the Retirement Sale happening at Letituier, you’ll want to be sure to do that too. The sale hairstyles are just 55 linden per color pack. This group gift style comes in the single color shown.

The Top – This one is for the Maitreya Lara body wearers. This tiny tube top is a Marketplace dollarbie by Teepa. It comes in the single size, however there are other Marketplace listings for the same top in different textures in the Teepa Marketplace store.

The Shorts – These shorts are so cute on, even though they are a tad shorter and lower than I would usually wear. They are a current group gift at zOOm. The zOOm group is 75 linden to join at this time and there is an entire shelf full of group gifts available. If flamingos aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry, this gift has a texture change hud with 10 different textures to pick from. All of them are cute!

Hey there Fab Free’rs, as always I am so glad you’re here! My long week is finally starting to wind down, and I am excited to share with you some awesome group gifts and this pretty Lucky Letter board hairstyle. The group gifts from #SHOOK have me all shook up, pun intended! I’m also pleased as punch with this free Lucky Letter board hairstyle from Little Bones. Thanks to the lovely Grace for the teleport when my letter came up!

The Hair – So either I had forgotten or maybe they are new, I’m not sure, but Little Bones has not 1 but 2 Lucky Letter boards that do not require an sort of group to participate in. Thanks to Grace’s thoughtfulness I was able to pick up the Winona hair pictured in “The Blondie” pack for free.

The Top & Jewelry – I’m over here singing “You #SHOOK me allll night long…” because that song is the first thing that comes to mind when I read the word “shook.” Right now you can get #SHOOK too with their 3 current group gifts. The #SHOOK group is just 50 linden to join, and you can pick up the top, necklace, and choker shown for free while wearing your group tag. The top includes a hud that lets you pick from 3 summery prints, and allows you to custom color or hide the lace edges. The transparent choker is also a free group gift and it comes in 3 variations, one with silver studs (shown), one with gold studs, and one with rose gold studs. The third group gift at #SHOOK is this tiered “Leo” necklace. It comes in 3 versions, one with a moon (shown), one with a star, and one with a heart. The necklace has a color change hud as well with 2 options for the little crystal, and several metal color options.

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ali & Ali Designs

Ali & Ali Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry I’ve been so absent as of late. I’m gearing up for a move in RL and it is taking not only my focus but most of my energy. I cannot wait to be settled and back into a normal routine. I hate being away, I miss you guys! That said I did manage a little bit of time to share with you the designer of the week, Ali & Ali Designs.

As most of you probably know, Ali & Ali is a hair shop that has been part of the Second Life experience for quite a while. What you might not know is that Ali & Ali also has a small selection of clothing, shoes, and even business scripts! There’s really a lot to see and shop for at Ali & Ali. At the main entrance you’ll notice there’s even a convenient teleport board with quite a few store “departments” that you can teleport to for convenient shopping. Still, the main Attraction at Ali & Ali is the hair. There are male styles as well as the female styles, there are also beards. Ali & Ali also caters nicely to the Classic Avatars in that they still offer non-mesh styles along with mesh, and they have a set of free tattoo layer hair bases available on the information desk just inside the entrance.

Ali & Ali Front Desk
The Ali & Ali information desk is really the hub of the store. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything and everything Ali & Ali related. There are also helpful fairies around the store that you can click for help and additional information. Also at the desk are the current free Ali & Ali group gifts. There is one for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. The Ali & Ali group is free to join at this time. I added a close up of the teleport board so you can get a better look at all Ali & Ali has to offer.Ali & Ali Lucky Gifts

Speaking of offers, just to the left of the desk you’ll find the exclusive Ali & Ali male and female gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Finally, as you shop through the multiple floors of the Ali & Ali store, you’ll see the occasional lucky letter chair and a few mini mania type boards. I put up some examples of what to look for, however the boards and chair shown are not the only ones. Don’t forget, there are male prizes as well as female ones. Also I noticed that at least a few of the boards did not seem to require a group to participate. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Rainy Days

Rainy Days
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been rainy and cold in my part of the world, and all I want to do is cuddle up in this big over-sized sweater from Searen, and listen to some music inside away from the cold and the wet. The cozy sweater, leg warmers, and headphones are all FREE gifts at Searen. I also picked up the TRUTH VIP gift for February, and it’s the perfect effortless shaggy bob.

Searen – All three of the gifts (sweater, leg warmers, headphones) are completely FREE at Searen. There is no need to join a group, just purchase each gift for zero linden. There are also a few other FREE gifts available. The intentionally huge sweater has a color change hud, and comes in several mesh sizes. The leggings are in the white color shown, and fit the Maitreya Lara body only. The headphones are not only cute as can be, they have a color change hud and can be sized via touch menu.
Mesh Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

TRUTH – Honestly, I have never been disappointed in any of the monthly gifts from the TRUTH VIP group. The fee is worth it. Like every month February’s gift is a full fat-pack hairstyle with style hud. The TRUTH VIP group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. Also, if you missed a past gift, most previous VIP gifts can be purchased by VIP group members for 500 linden for the full fat-pack.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Firelight Hearts

Firelight Hearts
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Is anyone else just now realizing that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away!?

I suggest this fun little dress from HEC (Hot Elegant Clothing) for the WomenStuff group. Also included with this gift is a HUD that lets you change the glow, and  “sheerness” of the dress, or hide it completely for a “strip” effect. The WomenStuff group is just 50 linden to join. This dress has a matching alpha layer as well, so it can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars.

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

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

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Good Golly Miss Mollie

Hello Winter
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like this has been the longest week of all the long weeks! lol It’s probably just me though. Thankfully I always have Fab Free to “come home” to. I also get the best kind of retail therapy, free! One of the things I love about this time of year in Second Life is the abundance of gifts, and of course my ability to share them with you.

Besom

I love this cute casual hairstyle from Besom.  It’s that style you wear when you are too lazy to get out of your comfy sweats but you still wanna look cute. ha! It’s also their most recent FREE group gift. This awesome gift is a fatpack, which of course means you get all the currently available color packs Besom offers. To get your copy of this hairstyle gift, head over to Besom and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

FaMeshed

I know I have talked about how laggy I am these days, well I decided to cross my fingers and hope my little laptop would bravely allow me to navigate the current round of FaMeshed.  By the grace of the technology gods it worked, and thankfully I didn’t have to navigate far. There are lots of FREE holiday gifts at FaMeshed stacked up under the Christmas tree very near the landing point. One of the gifts I picked up is this super cute cropped hoodie by Vinyl. I couldn’t say a bad thing about this top if I wanted to. Everything about it is well made, and I love the wording on the front. The top reads ” Hello Winter” in a simple font with a little bit of gold embellishment. You will need to wear the FaMeshed group tag to get this FREE gift and the many others. The FaMeshed group is FREE to join at this time.

Holiday Tacos

Tacos Tequila
Oh Hello There; Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! There are quite a few things that are kind of part of the local culture where I am from. This outfit embodies two of them. For starters, most people have a deep love for tacos. I’m not sure if it is our proximity to Mexico or if the tacos are just that super fantastic, but tacos are serious business out here. Secondly, you could actually wear a long sleeveless top and a scarf in December and be warm enough in the afternoon. You thought I was going to say something about tequila didn’t you?!

Get Lucky at Petite Mort

Okay so tequila isn’t so bad either, and it does go quite well with tacos, but that is not the point. This fun loose tank top is one of many Lucky Letter board prizes at Petite Mort. It comes in several mesh sizes, and in my opinion is well worth the effort. The Petite Mort group tag is required for the Lucky Letter boards. There is a one time join fee of 75 linden at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara (2 sizes)

Also, just in case you missed them, Love blogged a few of the other Lucky Letter board gifts at Petite Mort in her posts “Seeing Sepia… Roses” and “Can’t Stop! Too Many Sales!.

Keep Warm at Clawtooth

Clawtooth recently set out this wispy long hairstyle out as a FREE gift. There is no need to join a group, just pay the gift vendor 0 linden. The knit scarf is part of the hairstyle  Along with the hairstyle you’ll get a color change hud for the scarf, and an “Essentials” hair color pack. Needless to say this awesome Clawtooth FREEbie is a must have.

Here are the details, enjoy!
