It’s a world where the dog eats the dog

It's a world where the dog eats the dog

If you know what my title is from and/or why I chose it, then we should be best friends. Nerd alert – I love me some Les Mis. But that has nothing to do with what’s going on here today, so let’s move on. I found a couple of really great free gifts that I wanted to show you. And the best part is that they will cost you exactly nothing!

First the top!

My super cute top is by WellMade. It’s another free group gift that I got by joining the free group! I say “another” because there are bunches of gifts in the store. Undoubtedly you’ve seen the store name pop up time and again if you spend any time here on FabFree. This newest gift is a great t-shirt that’s tied in the front. It comes with a HUD with 4 color/pattern options and sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya (and Maitreya V2, whatever that means)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Then the bottom…I mean, boots

My new WellMade shirt and these great thigh high boots just begged to be worn together. So I was like, okay. To get the boots you’ll just need to pop over to Moda. There is no group join required, they are just there in the store for free. Doesn’t get much simpler than that! They come in various colors – three shades of denim, floral, and 2 animal prints. The sizes are Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass.

My back’s against the wall

My back's against the wall

Hi there! I’ve put together some pretty things to show you. I hope you like them!

Most literal title ever

There is a new free group gift at Ana Boutique, and it is a set of 3 poses designed to be used leaning up against a wall. They’re really fantastic. If you want to lean up against some walls too (and why wouldn’t you?), you’ll just need to join the free Ana Boutique group. You’ll find this pose pack and a few other free gifts on the wall above the stairs.

Hair, hair everywhere

I think that the thing that I buy the most of in SL is hair. Like, as soon as we finish up here I’m probably going to hit up the Saturday sale, where I will undoubtedly find some hair that I need and can’t live without. But when they’re on sale or free, it so hard to say no. This specific hair was FREE and it’s really cute. If that’s wrong then I don’t want to be right! I picked it up at Ayashi. There are two groups there, a free group and a paid group. This hair is a gift for the free group. Hopefully my slurl there takes you right where you need to go, but if it doesn’t there is a teleport board straight ahead when you walk into the store. Just choose Gift Room and you’ll see this pack and a few others on the wall. The super cute ‘do that I’m wearing here comes as a fatpack. I love the straight bangs and how the front is pulled back. It’s short and sassy and perfect.

Life with you makes perfect sense

Life with you makes perfect sense

I hate sim restarts. I mean, I imagine that everyone hates sim restarts, but they’re even worse when they always seem to happen when I’ve just about gotten everything set to take a picture. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to push it just a second longer and gotten logged out. Aaaaand that’s what happened to me again as I was taking this picture. I was so close to being out of there in time too, but nope. Oh well, I got the picture and I didn’t have time to overthink anything so it was worth it!

Stop rambling and tell us what you’re wearing!

Yeah, okay. Sorry about that. My outfit is from Wellmade. There are lots of group gifts at the store both for the Wellmade group and for a bunch of other groups (like FabFree!) as well. This cute cropped tank and jean shorts set is one of the free gifts for the Wellmade group, which is free to join. It is two pieces that you could totally rock separately, but my favorite part is how the top matches the pockets hanging down out of the shorts. Such a fun little detail! There is the pattern that I’m wearing here and a HUD with one other pattern option. They are sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique.

Every day you find ways to drive me crazy

Every day you find ways to drive me crazy

Look, another amazing FabFree group gift! And a great belly chain from one of my favorite stores!

Monomania

This hot little free outfit is from Monomania. It’s an itty bitty skirt and super cropped shirt and I love everything about them. It’s pretty, feminine, and super sexy all at the same time. There’s just so much great contrast – from the full sleeve on one side and the other arm bare, to a floral girly pattern cropped within an inch of decency. It’s got that perfect yin and yang thing going on and I like it. The skirt and top are separate pieces and each come sized for:

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

To get yours, activate your FabFree group tag (or join the group for free) and go give the vendor a click. While you’re there, there are lots of gifts for other groups to snag up, and loooooads of Monomania group gifts as well!

Chain

I thought this body chain from Chain complimented my outfit well. It’s even better underneath the shirt, trust me. Or better yet, just go to Chain and see for yourself. It is on the group gift wall with bunches of other pretty things there, and they’re all free when you join Chain’s group for a 100L fee. It comes in one size, labeled “Maitreya – XS” and includes a HUD that allows it to be changed to different metal colors.

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.

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara

Just another day in paradise

Just another day in paradise

Hello FabFree! I’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, and it’s nice mixing in some lovely freebies so I don’t go completely broke! Well…don’t go completely broke as quickly, rather. But even when I’m purchasing things I typically tend to be a bit of a bargain shopper. Come along, I’ll tell you about the pretty things that I’ve got on!

From Top…

This shirt is a new free group gift from Tachinni and the group is free to join. It hangs really nicely and I love the pretty pink shade. The gift comes in 4 sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya.

…To Bottom…

One can never have too many pairs of cute jeans shorts. These are really nice – plenty short but not “Is she wearing pants or underwear?” short. They are from Amazing Creations, a store which has been blogged her over and over. Becauuuuse there are lots of free group gifts up on the wall and the group is free to join. These shorts come in the white that I’m wearing, black, and blue. All three colors need to be “purchased” separately but they are free group gifts so I’m using the word purchase loosely. They also come with a color change HUD but I can’t seem to make it do anything? Maybe you’re smarter than me and you can figure it out, or maybe lag was just getting the best of me. Regardless, the three colors that they come in are sure to cover all your needs and they come sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy and Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy

…And almost everything else!

I love shopping Fifty Linden Friday and the Saturday Sale. Both events are full of fantastic designers selling beautiful things for 50L and 75L, respectively. They pop up here from time to time but not too often because by the time we’re able to get a picture and a blogpost together the sale is quite often over. This week I got my Glam Affair head applier from FLF and my hair and flip flops from the Saturday Sale. I have no idea what’s available still but if you don’t already shop these sales, then here’s your PSA to keep an eye out for the pretties that will be on offer next week!

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

This Domestic Diva Reigns in Lakshmi and Cerri’s!

Greetings!

I did sooooo much shopping yesterday, for Fifty Lindens Friday, I needed to stay home today and catch up on my domestic Diva chores!  It wasn’t all work…the first thing I did, while my husband was out getting milk for our coffee, was have some fun!  I cranked up the tunes and did my best Tom Cruise…dancing all over the house, and jumping on the sofa, in my FREE Cerri’s Office Girl May Group Gift (FREE to join) from Cerri’s Booty.  The Office Girl outfit comes with this fabulous patterned mesh button down shirt, non-mesh panties, and mesh socks…perfect for sliding across those wood floors!  You’ll find the group join and the group gifts on the second floor of the store.
This Domestic Diva Reigns in Lakshmi and Cerri's!Of course I STILL had to do some work around the house…so baking cookies and making red sauce were on the list!  I changed into my Lilian (Long Dress) Ocean FREE Group Gift (FREE to join) from *::LAKSMHI::*.
This Domestic Diva Reigns in Lakshmi and Cerri's!
I found this fabulous hair at *::LAKSHMI::*…it is also one of their FREE group gifts!  This F 2014 Gift Hair, previously shown by Pru HERE, comes with a HUD that let’s you resize it AND has a ton of color change options!  It’s perfect for hanging out around the house or going out to dinner! I’m wearing the red/brown in the first photo and the lightest blond in the second photo.

My Silver Chain Hoop Earrings are the latest release from .:ECCO:. and are on special for only 10L only through Sunday…so HURRY and get them before the price goes up!  These earrings are definite go-to jewelry…while you are there…subscribe to receive updates from .:ECCO:. and you will receive lots of goodies delivered directly to you…including the Pink version of these Chain Hoops!
This Domestic Diva Reigns in Lakshmi and Cerri's!
One of my last items is NOT free and the group, :REIGN:, costs a whopping 1000L to join…but I received these amazing wedges, as a FREE Group Gift, in a FAT Pack for both the Slink High and Mid feet.  These GROUPIE WEDGIES  have a ton of color change options, I can change the metal from silver to gold and they were created exclusively for the  :REIGN: group members…how incredibly special is that?!!!  The owners shut the store down and had an exclusive member only 50% off sale; with the release of the group gift!  I joined the group when there was an open enrollment…not sure if or when they will do another one…but if they do I will let you know because this is a group definitely worth joining…:REIGN: is VERY generous with their group members!  If you decide you can’t wait and pay the 1KL to join…you will find the GROUP WEDGIES in the group notices.  Keep in mind this is a fat pack of shoes that normally go for 400-750L EACH…so that 1KL membership fee just took care of itself!
This Domestic Diva Reigns in Lakshmi and Cerri's!I have shown my Watermelon Slink Nail Appliers a few times…they are FREE from Flair (no group join) and I just don’t want to take them off!  I’m sure I’ll be wearing them all through the Spring!
ChiChickie floats away in Azul and :SMC:!
Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤
