Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

Cute and Psycho

Psycho
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope the week has been good to you so far. Mine has been pretty good, great when I consider all the fantastic freebies I’ve been seeing on the blog. Needless to say I’m happy to be adding 3 more freebies/cheapies to the list with this post. I will let you know how and where you can score the hair, the glasses, and the dress Pru is wearing for next to nothing. I had fun with the slightly pastel goth twist to a comfy casual style, and I enjoyed wearing this look. I hope you will also.

Stardust

First, let’s talk about these long wavy locks of paste hair. This hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Moon hair. I think that Moon is pretty well known for their extra long hairstyles, and this one is a beautiful example. The hair is all pulled forward over the shoulders, and it comes with a group only color hud of gorgeous pastel ombres and fades. The Moon group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Moon HEC Psycho Barbie

One More From HEC

I don’t mind telling you that I liked the group gift sunglasses from HEC aka Hot Elegant Clothing I showed in my last post “Sunday Fun in the Sun” that I picked up the Teleport Hub group gift at HEC also. These sunglasses are equally detailed and so cute on. They also come with an amazing hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the glasses, from the lenses and frames to the nose pads. There are also two lens versions, one pair with “baked reflection” and a “flat” lens version. To get these sunnies you’ll need to join the Teleport Hub group which has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. Then you can purchase them for zero linden at the HEC main store.

Psycho  Barbie

This cute little sweater dress is a current group gift at Psycho Barbie. The dress comes in several mesh sizes and could easily be worn as a top as well as a dress. I have to admit, it is rather short! The Psycho Barbie group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift. All you need is group space. There are also quite a few previous group gifts still available.

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

Here are the details!

Eclipse

Eclipse_001

I was in the path of the Solar Eclipse yesterday, and was lucky enough to have a chance to view it because my local library had a viewing event and was providing free eclipse glasses for individuals to check out for 15 minute intervals. By lucky chance, I was able to check out my 15 minutes at the peak of the eclipse and see it in all its glory. It was an amazing sight!

A few creators have made gifts that seem to commemorate the event and it seemed appropriate to show them off!

Mandala…

Kib Designs is giving away a free Mandala dress (the group is free to join) if you stop by their main-store. The Mandala has come to represent or be a general generic term for any diagram, chart, or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos… a microcosm of the universe. It seems an appropriate and beautiful gift at the moment given the impact of the solar eclipse on so many people as they rushed to get to see it.

Dress sizes available:

  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Eclipse_002

August Eclipse 2017

Chop Zuey was not to be outdone as far as gifts, and the creator has made a special texture change set of jewelry, specifically to commemorate the event, called “August Eclipse.”

There are two gifts… the diadem is a free to all gift and is fully customizable and texture change. You can pick it up in the free to all gift section by buying it for 0L.

There is also a Chop Zuey group gift, which is the jewelry set, in the group gift section. This set includes the choker, earrings, and bracelets, all texture change just like the diadem. The group is 350L to join, but Chop Zuey sets out frequent gifts for both men and women, making the group well worth joining.

A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

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

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/18/2017 – Frimon Store

Frimon Store
Happy Saturday Fab Free! I know this is a day late, let me just say it was a long week for this blogger, and I’m so glad for the weekend. I’m positive that the day being Saturday rather than Friday doesn’t make this weeks Designer of the week any less awesome. Frimon Store is this weeks designer. If you’re looking for sweet couples poses, fun poses for your friends, or even cool individual poses, you definitely need to go to Frimon Store.  Many of the poses even include props! Not to mention there are several opportunities for some FREE gifts. This wouldn’t be the Fab Free blog after all without some freebies! I also think it’s important to mention that the Frimon Store is set up in a very serene but minimal setting, which I think is ideal for shopping. There is an outdoor courtyard area that has all the general “wall of information” type things including associated groups and an online indicator for the shop owner/creator.
Frimon Store Gifts
Now back to those FREEbies! At the center of the store there is a big wall of Frimon Store group gifts and additional group gifts for members of other groups. The Frimon Store group is FREE to join, so there’s no cost to get the Frimon Store group gift. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fab Free group gift. Don’t forget to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag! If you’re not already a member the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. The Fab Free gift at Frimon Store is the last one on the right. You may recall this fun couples pose from Carson’s post “Taking the Plunge.” Whether you’re a professional photographer, a blogger, or you’re taking snaps with your friends, you don’t want to miss out on these awesome poses. Happy Shopping!

Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Give Me a Reason

To Love You
Hello There Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long week for me in that place called real life. Needless to say I’m glad to be back in virtual reality. Today’s post features a few more FREE gifts from The Coven Lunar Festival, the August Group gift from Truth, and some inexpensive lingerie from Milk Tea.

Beautiful Blue

This sweet pastel blue lingerie set is a FREE group gift by Milk Tea for the Teleport Hub group members. You’ll find this gift at the Milk Tea main store. Look for a small sitting area to one side of the shop, there you’ll see the Teleport Hub group joiner and the gift box set to the Teleport Hub group. The group has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. The gift includes the applier lingerie set shown in this pastel blue shade. It also includes a shirt and pant layer for classic non mesh avatars.

Appliers Included:  Omega, Slink, Maitreya (one applier with all 3 options)

Elie

The long bob hairstyle named “Elie” that Pru is wearing is the August group gift for Truth VIP members. I love that this gift not only comes in a fatpack so you get every hair color available, but it also has a stylist hud for some fun style options. You can choose to wear the hair tucked behind the right or left ear, down on both sides, or tucked behind both ears. There are 8 total style variations. This cute hairstyle also has bobby pins when the hair is worn over the ear. The included hud will allow you to change the color of the pins, or choose to make them invisible. Additionally, there are rigged and unrigged versions of the hair included. The Truth VIP group has a one time join fee of 350 lindens.
A Reason
You might recall my previous post that featured a few of the FREE gifts at The Coven Lunar Festival, you can get a look at it here. There are tons of FREE gifts available at the event. I chose to include a few more in this post because I liked them too much not to share them.

Septum Piercing

Arise put out this pretty purple septum piercing as their The Coven Lunar Festival event gift. In the package you’ll get the piercing in a script free version, and one that includes resize scripts. You will need to join The Coven group and wear the group tag to get the gift. There is a group joiner at the landing point. The Coven Lunar Festival gifts are all in little black cauldrons. Just click the cauldron while wearing the group tag and your gift will be sent to you. The group is FREE to join.

Give Me a Reason

Personally, I am not  always a fan of tattoos that are mostly text. I think this one is very cute and simple, and it looks great when applied. This tattoo is The Coven Lunar Festival gift from Nanika. This is an applier tattoo only. With each applier you will be able to choose either dark, medium, or light depending on how dark you want the tattoo to appear. This gift will also require The Coven group tag.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!
