For Warm Sunny Days

Dead Dollz Imbue
Well Hello Fab Free’rs, no matter what the groundhog says I’m pretty sure I can already smell spring. The weather however seems to have no idea what season it is nor which is coming! Spring is all over these group gifts I picked up at Dead Dollz and Imbue. While, I do love sweaters and sweater weather, I have to admit it does feel good to put on something meant for warm sunny days.

Dead Dollz Dress

This stunner of a red dress is the latest group gift from Dead Dollz. Though it only comes in a single size, the dress fit my Maitreya Lara body like a glove. Even with all the detailed edging and low points under the arms and down the back, this mesh dress moves well. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens, which this dress alone is well worth in my opinion.

Imbue Shoulder Bag 

I love the look of this bag from Imbue! The style of this cute mesh shoulder bag is such that it would match just about any outfit, whether you’re still sporting your winter fashion or you’ve started to dig out that spring wardrobe. I think the floral pattern is beautiful, and I even like how the fringe looks when your avatar moves. The Imbue group has a one time join fee of 99 lindens.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

A Fab Free Breakfast Club

Wink
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! There are a few more days left to pick up the many FREE gifts available at the Anniversary round of Designer Showcase, so I chose a few more to share with you. I also couldn’t help but notice all the 80s and 90s movie nostalgia on the blog. I like it! Finally, did not go unnoticed that Carson claimed the role of Fab Free Black Sheep. That made me smile, and chuckle a little. To quote the best of all the John Hughes movies, the truth is “… that each one of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal…” or perhaps in some instances a black sheep.

A Dress for a Princess & a Basket Case…

This mixed floral and animal print dress is the FREE Designer Showcase gift from Kendrasy Creations. No matter if you’re a princess, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, or perhaps even a criminal, this dress is perfect for a night out. The dress comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. I must admit, I do feel like a sassy princess in this dress. As with all the gifts at the Designer Showcase, you’ll need to join the Designer Showcase group to pick up this FREE gift. The Designer Showcase group is FREE to join.
Princess

… and the Jewelry to Match 

Yet another FREE gift at the Designer Showcase Anniversary round is this gorgeous jewelry set from Moondance Boutqiue. The necklace in the photo comes with a matching pair of dangle earrings. In addition the set can be resized and recolored with the scripted touch menu. This means the jewelry will match virtually any outfit whether you’re the princess or the basket case, or like me and a little bit of both! Don’t forget to wear that Designer Showcase group tag to get your gifts.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

New Years Zen

ZenWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all well, I’m glad you’re here. I want to share with you one of my hopes for this shiny new year. While there are lots of things I am going to work toward in my 2017, at the top of the list is a little personal zen. I believe that intuition and self reflection are important. I intend to be more accepting of myself, rather than remain often at war. I want to be genuinely happier, and bring happiness to others. That’s not to say that I am unhappy, I consider myself to be very fortunate in many ways. However, I think there’s always room for improvement! If you don’t already have all the happiness you could possibly want in your own lives, I wish that happiness finds you also. Truthfully I think everyone can benefit from a little personal zen. Okay I’ve got all the sentiment out of my system, now for the freebies!

Aurica Store – Bileya Tattoo 

Starting with this gorgeous pink henna style mandala type tattoo. I’m not often into pink, though I find myself appreciating it more lately, I still love this tattoo from Aurica. It’s a FREE gift listed on the Marketplace. Included in this gift from Aurica is an applier only. The applier hud will work for Omega compatible bodies, Maitreya Lara, Slink bodies, and TMP bodies. I think the mandala type design is perfect for the new year. You may or may not know this, but the mandala is said to represent a “…dreamers search for completeness and self-unity.”

Cureless – Moonlight Jewels

Cureless recently sent out a FREE group gift. This bindi type crescent moon is beautiful. The textures have an almost iridescent quality. This gift from Cureless includes a color change hud with a ton of color options. I probably should have counted them, but trust me, there are a lot! The Cureless group is FREE to join. To get the gift, just join the group and check the past notices. Hurry though, notices do not stay available forever. I think I’ll be wearing this little jewel often.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Look to the Future

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Time for a Little SaNaRae

SaNaRae GiftsHello There Fab Free’rs, I’m back with some Fabulous “Halloween” gifts from the SaNaRae event. I know I know, Halloween has come and gone, but really it’s a state of mind, isn’t it? Okay maybe only in my world! Still the current round of SaNaRae started October 25th, and it’s ending on November 18th. That means there’s about a week left to snag several FREE group gifts. I picked out a few of my favorites that I thought looked well together. I call this look “the everyday goth”. I hope you like it!

Starting with the dress, it’s what caught my eye the most. I’m usually not into skulls, just a personal thing, but sometimes I think they work and for me this works. This FREE SaNaRae gift is by BADA. The dress comes in a single mesh size, and of course includes an alpha layer. Aside from the skull design on the top, I really like the almost iridescent look to the blue-green colored skirt.

Next up, these earrings are the FREE SaNaRae gift from Oxide. The best part about these, in my opinion, is that they look so well made. I instantly feel like they’d be heavy. The textures are also nice. This pair of earrings includes a color change hud that lets you pick between 3 dark colors for the stone, and gold or silver for the metal tones. I also like that the metal textures have more of a “brushed” look than an ultra shiny metallic look.

To go with the earrings, I chose this thin black choker with the little silver cross. This FREE SaNaRae gift comes from a shop called C.ment. In the package you’ll find this version of the choker, and one with a red cross rather than silver. The jewelry can be sized via touch script for easy fitting. I will say I had to size mine up quite a bit. I guess I have a big neck! lol That said, I love that chokers are so in right now.

Lastly, I adore this manicure by Nanika, also a FREE gift at SaNaRae. I have seen this spiderweb pattern with a black french tip before, but I think this version is particularly well done. It’s pretty and understated enough that it doesn’t scream Halloween, but still has that playful aspect. I would wear this every day. This manicure set comes with a single hud that works with Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya compatible nails.

**To get these Fabulous Freebies, you’ll need to join the SaNaRae group, and wear your group tag. The SaNaRae group is FREE to join.**

No Rain In Here!

Snapshot_001

Hey Fab Readers!  With the RL rain drizzling down my window, I decided to put together a sunny SL corner with some inexpensive, and free finds I have picked up recently in an effort to shake the shivers!

The build and many of the décor items are by Dust Bunny, and are available in a gacha machine at The Arcade Gacha that is just 50L per play.  In this photo you’ll find the following items from the set:

  • Acorn Treehouse
  • Window Table
  • Rocking Chair
  • Apple Pie
  • Warm Cocoa
  • Braided Rug
  • Coat Rack
  • Blanket Stool
  • Potted Rowan Berries
  • Postcards
  • Caramel Apples
  • Dahlia Jug
  • Melted Candle
  • Firewood Basket

Sitting in the window of my cozy corner you will find The Boogers Cuddle Bears which is available as a free gift at The Arcade Gacha right near the Boogers Gacha Machine.  I picked up the College Library Cupboard shown on the right hand side as a free group gift in the notices of the Junk inworld group which is free to join, and the I Love You Canvas artwork above the cabinet is 1L at floorplan.

The Leather Rope Bag in front of the window table is the latest group gift by Zenith (also free to join!).  This bag is wearable with and without a pose, or you can rez it as a décor item as I have done.

Additionally, the adorable Shiba Inu Dogs are by Half-Deer and you can find them at The Arcade Gacha at 75L per play in a variety of different posed pups!

Happy decorating 🙂
