Driftin’

Heyya Fabfree

Driftin'

I don’t know about your part of the real world right now, but mine is freakin’ hot. So of course this is the time the air conditioning decides to fry itself. I need to find a cool pool and relax! If only the real life was as easy to that as Second Life.  I’d be right at home with this super cute pool floatie from Bad Unicorn. The ‘Mega Unicorn Floatie’ is one of the current Group Gifts in the main store and it was so cute I had to grab it. The floaty comes in a wearable and a rezzable version and only takes up five land impact so I have him bobbing around my pond to make me smile.

I needed a nice new swimsuit to compliment my floatie friend and Pixal Perfect has this hot little number as the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. This is the ‘July Swimsuit’ and not only do you get the cute suit, you get a HUD to change the color of the top with four choices. The suit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. The hunt runs until

Topping off my summertime cool is my new hairstyle from Mello, a ‘new to me’ designer. This is ‘detox’ and it comes with a HUD for seventeen wild and pastel colors. Detox is one of the current Group Gifts at Mello and the group is free to join!

I think I’m just gonna chill here for awhile……

Flirt

Hello my dear FabFree-ers!

Flirt

I hope the weekend coming up has you all excited and happy! I know I am ready for some fun in the sun and some fun under the SL sun too.  I’m starting my weekend with the Flirty Summer Hunt since we only have a few more days to play this one.  This is the ‘Amelie’ dress from K Creations and it’s the 1L prize for this Hunt. I love the styling on this mini dress. The soft colors and the feminine floral print… just wonderful. Amelie comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as a FitMesh version. I found it to be a great fit as well as very nicely built.

My hairstyle is another ‘show-off’ today. This is ‘Gem’ from Little Bones and it’s the very generous free gift at the Hair Fair. You get the large, medium and small versions of the hair plus a Lelutka applier along with a very nice HUD with sixteen natural and not so natural colors.

The Hair Fair will wrap up on July 31st but you have until August 15 for the Flirty Summer Hunt. So get crackin’!

Your Friday Hunt Report

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Hey FabFree-ers!

Jasmine

 

I’ve been on the Hunt again and July is turning in to a great month for hunting.  I found this super cute crop top on the Pastel Party Hunt from Wicked. You get two versions of the ‘May’ top in the Hunt prize: the “steel Feathers” I’m showing you and a mint green version. And talk about something for every “body”. May comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS – L, plus appliers for Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus, SLink Physique and Hourglass and Maitraya.  All this for a little searching and 1 linden. The Pastel Party Hunt runs until July 31 so get to hunting.

My cool new skirt is from a ‘new to me’ designer: Delicatt Couture. This is the ‘Jasmine Skirt’ and it’s the free gift for the Third Life Group. Jasmine comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. Delicatt Couture has a ton of gifts out for their group and other “around the Grid’ groups so be sure to check them out!

Monochromatic

Monochrome Hi there Fab Free’rs! As always I hope everyone is well in their Second Lives, First Lives, and all Lives. I’m doing pretty good myself, I’m happy to say. For this post I have several FREE or inexpensive gifts to share with you, and I was clearly inspired by how they all came together. I really have no idea what terminology to use to describe this look. The terms modern, industrial, gothic, all come to mind. Whatever you choose to call it, I hope you like it.

First, let’s talk about all this bold metallic looking jewelry by Alter. I have to say this set is really unique, in a good way, definitely what you would call a statement set. This full set including earrings, bracelets, and necklace come together as a FREE gift available at the July round of SWANK. Each piece is scripted to be sized up or down via touch menu. While the set clearly goes together, each piece is different enough to stand alone.
Alter Mana Also among the several gifts at SWANK is this dollarbie nail applier set from IP Nails. Continuing with the metallic theme, this really pretty manicure comes in the single style shown, a soft satin grey with a gold tip. Included in this gift are appliers for Maitreya nails, Omega compatible nails, and Slink nails. Also  I want to point out that the single applier did color both my fingernails and my toenails, at least the Maitreya applier did. I would definitely wear this mani/pedi with everything, casual attire, formal attire, it will look good with any outfit.
Free Mana Saving what is in my opinion the best for last, Essences recently sent out this stunning pale skin as a FREE subscriber gift. You read that right, no group needed, just join the subscriber. I’ve always been a sucker for pretty red lips, and the makeup on this gift version of the Essences Mana skin slays. Included in this beautiful FREEbie is a full set of system skins, you get this gorgeous face in a full system layer skin with brow and cleavage options. That means classic avatars can definitely take advantage of this gift. Also included in the gift is a Lelutka head applier. Mesh body appliers can be purchased separately at the Essences main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

Have a Flirty Summer

Zalea JLZ

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend! Mine was good, but I’m glad to be here doing one of the things I love, sharing fabulous freebies with You. Today I put together a real cute casual warm-weather look with the aid of some FREE hair from Zalea and a dollarbie jacket and shirt combo from JLZ Fashion.

This wavy hair style from Zalea reminds me of those beachy hairstyles you always hear about this time of year. Everyone wants that “fresh from the beach” look, and I think this style gives you that. This specific dark auburn color version of this style is a FREE subscriber gift available at Zalea. To get this gift join the subscriber first. Then click the box below the subscriber button on the subscriber. This will bring up the notice history. Once you get the history menu, choose option 2 (the notice about the fatpack sale) and then choose deliver. You’ll get a box with a note about a sale, and the hairstyle will be included in the box. Unfortunately the sale has ended, however the FREE hairstyle is still available.

When I was looking for things to share here on the Fab Free blog, and having some trouble finding things, Love told me about this summery mesh top and jacket combo from JLZ Fashion. If you have been looking for something cute and casual, and you love floral prints, this is the find for you! The mesh jacket/top combo is JLZ’s contribution to the Flirty Summer Hunt. The FSH is a dollarbie hunt, so all the hunt gifts are 1 linden. This hunt prize comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitmesh for Isis, Freya, Venus, Lara, TMP, Physique, and Hourglass bodies.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Lady in Red

Lady in Red

There’s a fresh FREE lucky board at Entice (no group required) that is just yummy! This Rain Over Me in Gradient dress (with a 3 color hud for red, blue, or purple as your color choices) is yours with a bit of luck if your letter comes up. Don’t fret though… it’s right next to several other lucky letter boards, a FREE Group Midnight Mania board, a no group required FREE midnight Mania board, and other group gifts … all FREE. So you’re bound to find things to keep you busy while you wait for your letter!

This dress in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits, and includes an alpha layer for standard mesh bodies as well. You’re bound to find your fit!

The Moda board locked down the other day too, delivering me a pair of Cayla Wedges in red… woot! These matched my new Entice dress in its red color so well, that I couldn’t help remind you of this awesome FREE Midnight mania board. It locks down at 400 slaps and the pair of shoes changes out daily… so it’s worth smacking to lock down… just go slap it!

** Quick note to clarify: Since my Moda shoes are from a couple of days ago, today’s style and color will be different. As I explained in the paragraph above, the style and/or color available changes daily! This is just a reminder of this great free offer:)

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

This is ‘Marina’ and it’s one of the current free group gifts out in the main store. And it really is complete. You get the lovely fringed jacket, the tank top ( as one piece) the denim high waist shorts AND the upper cute sandals for SLink flat feet. The top comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-S as well as SLink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya and Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus.  The shorts are FitMesh XXS-L and the same appliers. So I bet you’ll find your fit here.
