Get Your Feet Wet  & Go For a Swim

Coming SoonIt’s beach time, FabFree! I love exploring beaches on SL. I came across Kanaloa Beach thanks to Aline’s recommendation, and I had the chance to explore and take some pics with friends the other day. It’s such a pretty sim and perfect for summer! I think they even have some fireworks on the beach events coming up. 

Blue Eyes like the ocean

If you are a Lelutka Evolution head user, you should definitely swing by the Sense Event and get these gorgeous blue eyes by Luka, which are free with the Sense event’s free-to-join group. The eyes come with a Lelutka Evolution applier and in BOM. I’m not sure if the BOM eyes work with other heads, but it’s possible!

A Great Shell Necklace

The second free item I am showing today is a beautiful necklace by a new-to-me store called Carlynda Jewelers. My friend Orion helped me find this awesome item, and it is totally free on the Marketplace. Carlynda Jewelers has a couple freebies available there so go check out their Marketplace store.  

SOUTH SEA SHELL PEARL NECKLACE GIFT

A Lil’Bonus: a FREE Swim Hud

Ok so this isn’t exactly shown in my photo, but I did play around with this awesome free swim HUD while I was hanging out at Kanaloa Beach. This hud is awesome! You can swim, dive, etc. wherever there is water. It worked great at the beach! Try it out- you won’t regret it and it is free. You can get it for free on the Marketplace by Thor’s Oak. This item works for any gender.

Enjoy, FabFree!

A Vintage Goth

Coming Soon

I have a bit of a “vintage goth” look going on today, so I decided to chill and take a picture by this gorgeous stained glass window inside this spooky, dark-lit room. I just love this type of style so I’m excited to share these finds with you today. 

FabFree Gift @ Furtacor

First up is this awesome Jesabel Dress, which is a free fatpack at Furtacor. This one is a FabFree group gift, and it’s simply gorg! Simply join our FabFree group and click the package at Furtacor. If you are having trouble getting to the gift room at Furtacor, take the teleport board to the location that says gifts. There is  LOAD of free gifts from this designer, and a few for just the FabFree group members! Yay! I absolutely fell in love with the emerald and black checkered pattern of this dress, and there is a load of other colours and patterns included with Jesabel that can be changed via a hud. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Legacy Female & Perky
  • Signature Alice
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Dark Vintage

There are a few more freebies added to this look to create that dark, vintage vibe. I will list them to make it easier on the eyes!

  • The gorgeous pearls around my neck are a dollarbie at Lorien. They’re beautes. 
  • The pearl headband is yet another free group gift at Cae. Remember that Cae is closing at the end of the month, so make sure you go over there and get all the gifties before they disappear! The headband can be resized. 
  • The spiky hoop earrings are a free lucky board gift at Sn@tch, no group required. 
  • The adorable rainbow eyes are a free gift on the Marketplace by Nimu. I am wearing the BOM version of the eyes, but these also include appliers for Genus, Lelutka, and Omega. 
  • The gorgeous black lipstick comes from an amazing 1L deal on the marketplace. This is a lipstick applier made specifically for Lelutka Evolution heads made by Bellucci. The “Her Glossiness” pack comes in several other natural lip gloss tones tones!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Soak in the Sun

FF Gift_005 (2)

Ah, the beach and the sun. It’s been so long since I’ve been afforded the luxury of a lovely summer retreat! I may not be wearing the best attire for the beach right now, but I don’t plan on swimming today. I just want to soak in the sun and wrap up inside this beach bed and curl up with a good book. Time for a summer vacation!

Adela @ Evolve

Today I am wearing the Adela dress by Evolve. This is a new-to-me store, and their clothes are beautifully made! Today I am wearing the Adela mesh dress in blue. This was my favourite colours of the dress which is why  I featured it as the cover photo. This is an MLM Frees & Offers group gift. Like other freebie groups in SL such as TeleportHub, SLFO, FabFree, etc., the MLM Frees & Offers group is a real keeper! I’ve been in this group for probably 2 years and collected tonnes of freebies around the grid. The MLM Frees & Offers group costs only 5 linden to join.

You can also get the Adela dress in a Mango Sorbet colour for free with the Sexy, Fashionable, Gorgeous Me (SFGM) group tag active. The SFGM group is another AMAZING freebie group and it’s run by the same folks that organize Free Dove. The SFGM group is currently free to join, but I’m not sure for how long (the group normally costs a small fee to join.

Puppies!

Who doesn’t love dogs? I mean, come on. I love cats too but doggies are so loveable! I will admit, I never thought I’d see puppy prints on a bikini, but they are surprisingly cute. This great bikini is by Ari-Pari, and there are 5 colours of it to find in total which each have the cute puppy prints on them, and these are only 10L each on on the Kink & Pink Hunt. Look at the hunt key below to see the different colour combinations!

Accessorize

Coming Soon

An Accessories & Hair Day

Today is an accessories day. I love adding little trinkets to my AVI, and it’s something I’ve developed a love for over time. Sometimes it takes for forever to make that necklace or earring to fit just right, but it’s so worth it! I hope you all enjoy little trinkets, items, and jewels you can use to accessorize your AVI because that’s what I’m mainly showing today! I will also later announce how to get a whole LOAD of free hair. 

The Perfect Cross

My necklace is a gorgeous cross necklace which is a free group gift at Finer Threads. This necklace is so detailed. It’s a must have! It only comes in one colour, but the shine of the gold on this chain is stunning. 

Little Mandalas

The gorgeous earrings are also a free group gift at Zaara. simply join the free group and the earring are yours in gold and silver. They look like little Mandalas, which I love.  

Did someone say Functional Demo?

Have you ever heard of a functional or wearable demo? It’s basically a gift, disguised as a demo! What it means is there is no demo box attached to the item, so you can wear it all you like. The beautiful hair I have on is a functional demo from Alli&Ali Designs. I grabbed it on the Marketplace. In fact, Alli&Ali Designs has almost every hair up on their marketplace store with a “functional demo”- a free gift of each hair in one colour only. The colours shown in the ads are the same colour your receive with the free gift. This is a very generous offer from Alli&Ali Designs. The full version (paid) include more colours, but to make the demo fully wearable is a treat! Since Alli&Ali Designs has over 900 hairstyles in their marketplace store for both men and women, so you can get a LOT of one-colour hairs for free. I’m still loading up and picking what I want.  😉 The lovely hair I am wearing today is called Viola and it comes in red. Check out this link to see the demos of all the hairs which are fully wearable in the colour shown in the ad. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!

I’ll hold on to what I’m missing the most

I'll hold on to what I'm missing the most

Ahhhh can’t you just feel the sea breeze on your face and smell that salt in the air? Those are definitely some of my favorite things, but I’ll try to focus because I have exciting things to tell you about!

Today is a big day. Let me count the ways:

  1. Two posts in one day! But maybe not really because I did the one from this morning last night. Still counts though.
  2. On this day, 3 months ago, I did my first post for FabFree! Can you believe that you’ve been putting up with me for three whole months already? Yeah, me neither.
  3. The Cart Sale starts today!  If you’re not familiar with this sale, it’s pretty simple. Just tp over to The Wash and you’ll see lots of carts lining the road, full of wonderful offerings. There’s clothes, furniture, decor, and so on…a nice little mix of everything. There are great designers selling things for 10L each, with some freebies sprinked in as well. What’s not to love?

My Favorite Flower

Tulips are my favorite flower. They are so pretty and happy and springy, I just love them. They were even my wedding flowers (RL not SL…I’ve never had a wedding in SL but that’s a story for a different day). So when I saw the lovely tulip pattern on this great maxi dress from baci, I knew right away that it would be my first post for The Cart Sale! It comes in these sizes:

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

It’s just the perfect sweet, casual look to wear as summer winds down.

Just let me have my fun tonight, a’ight

Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

I tend to forget about Pink when I’m shuffling music which is unfortunate because she’s got some really great songs, like the one that I borrowed my title from for this post. I had to listen to it like 3 times to decide which line to use, I wanted to use all of them! …but that would have been a ridiculously long title. Anyway, today I’m wearing a whole bunch of Suicidal Unborn. There are a ton of free group gifts available and they’re all really great, so I’ve combined three of them here – my top, necklace, and eyes.

The Shirt

Shall we discus my shirt first? Ohhhh the shirt. lol I really like it. Because seriously, who hasn’t felt this way? Especially in Second Life where I would argue that the boys in question are not necessarily more prevalent, but definitely bolder. It’s a bit crass perhaps, but oh so accurate! Because there is only one way to say some things. This particular free group gift has an included HUD containing 6 color options and comes in 5 sizes, XXS-L. It did take a bit of alpha’ing to make it fit but I was able to get a perfect fit easily.

The Eyes

If you’re an eye snob like me, then you have to go to Suicidal Unborn. Seriously, the eyes are gorgeous. There are gacha machines in the store with eyes and lots of really cool styles available, but these are a free group gift! I tried to crop my picture a bit tight so you can see them, they are so so pretty. You can also click the picture to see it in flickr if you’d like to get a closer view. My only issue with the group gift eyes is that there is no catwa applier (the other eyes in the store do have a catwa applier) but that seems like a minor gripe, all things considered. I’m just really terrible, bad, and no good at editing eyes so please excuse me if they’re not fitted quite right. What it DOES come with is classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD fuuuull of colors to choose from! The HUD also lets you change the left and right eye independent of each other, so you can have 2 different color eyes of you want to. It’s really fantastic and so pretty. Did I say that already? Because they’re really pretty.

The Necklace

I love finding quality jewelry and this cool choker totally falls into that category. It has interlocking chain in the front and the back is a leather band. It also includes a HUD that allows you to chain the color of the metal and has 3 options for how distressed the leather is. All as part of a free group gift.

The Suicidal Unborn group is 100L to join but there are quite a lot of gifts available. I would happily have paid that for any one of these gifts, and instead I get ALL of them plus a bunch more. Yes, please! You can find these and all of the other group gifts behind the front desk when you enter the store.

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

My picture today is chock-full of freebies, it’s very exciting. Don’t believe me? Just watch.

The Dress

I think this is just the sweetest dress. It comes with a HUD so you can choose from 4 different colors. I got it at Synford Style. When you land, you will be invited to join a group – that is not the one that you need to be in to get the free gifts. Instead you’ll need to join the Synford Style VIP group, which is also free. Then you’ll have access to the free group gifts, including this dress. It comes sized for the following bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

And The Necklace

I’ve been meaning to join the Nanika group and finally did. The join fee is only 50L and there are 3 really great necklaces set out as free group gifts. I’m a sucker for this choker style tied in a bow. It includes a HUD for 4 color options.

And Even The Pose

This pose is part of a pack of 5 that are a free gift for the #Faded group. The group is free to join. They’re all really natural, pretty poses – my favorite kind.
