Heart! Triangulate and Listen

Not Today SLHello Fab Free’rs! I feel like it’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed sharing with you. Like some of the other bloggers I’ve been feeling a little blah recently, and perhaps a little restless. I think it’s this strange weather we have been experiencing out here in the southern United States. I also think I read something about Mercury being in retrograde. While I’m not sure exactly what that entails, I always see it associated with mental, physical, and emotional shenanigans. Even Second Life seems to be misbehaving more than usual. Whatever the reason, I hope things settle down soon for all of us! That said, I fell back on an old saying “look better, feel better” and picked out an outfit full of fun bright colors in effort to counteract all the blahs in both worlds.

TriangulateMaxi Gossamer – Sugar Heart Necklace

 The proverbial icing on the cake that is this wildly colorful outfit is the FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. This heart pendant necklace comes equipped with a detailed touch menu so you can customize the size and color of your necklace. Also included is a longer version of the necklace. Pru tried it on, and the long version hung down to her navel. It made me think of those long necklaces you’d wear with a sweater. The Maxi Gossamer group is FREE to join. To get your own copy of this FREE gift, just head to the Maxi Gossamer main store and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Eclectic Stars – Shimmy – Triangulate

If these pants don’t cheer you up, I’m afraid nothing will. They are a unique design from Eclectic Stars in an exclusive pattern especially for Fab Free group members. That’s right, these colorful pants are the most recent Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars. This generous gift includes specific sizes for Maitreya Lara, all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, and TMP. Additionally there are fitmesh and standard mesh sizes included. To get this FREE gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join, and click the gift vendor at Eclectic Stars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/30/2016 – Beloved Jewelry

Beloved JewelryHello There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and we know what that means: Fab Free Designer Friday! This weeks post is dedicated to Beloved Jewelry. I have to tell you, it’s been quite a day of blunders for me today. I actually had an entire post written and photos taken of what I thought was the Beloved Jewelry main store, only to find out that I’d been at their satellite store the whole time.  If Love hadn’t come to help me “find” the Beloved Jewelry Fab Free exclusive gift, I would have been in big trouble. My whole post would have been about the right shop, but wrong location! Needless to say, I have it all sorted out and Love probably got a good laugh!

My mishap aside, the Beloved Jewelry store is really elegantly set up with a grand desk at the entrance. On the desk you’ll find a little black box with a FREE Beloved Jewelry group gift, and a second group only vendor that will allow you to purchase a box full of previous group gifts. Just below these fantastic gifts, you’ll also see 3 group exclusive group gifts for other groups including the Fabulously Free group gift blogged previously by Astrid. Now I am getting a little ahead of myself. I got distracted by all the fabulous gifts. The Beloved Jewelry store has a wide range of gorgeous jewelry that ranges in style from casual to formal. You’ll even find some beautiful shoes to suit your formal wear needs. Most of the jewelry is for the ladies only, however the shop does have an entire section dedicated to wedding jewelry and bridal sets which of course include male sizes. If you’re looking for a gift for someone you care for, or even a gift just for yourself, you’ll want to stop through Beloved Jewelry. As you browse through the store you’ll even find specials and discounted items for shopping events. Just look closely at the signage throughout the store, everything is clearly marked.Dollarbies As you’re browsing and hopefully shopping, you may want to take note of the wall behind the front desk area. The back of that wall is where you’ll find the Beloved Jewelry dollarbie section. As you can see from the above photo there are a lot of beautiful jewelry sets to choose from in a wide range of styles.  These items are all no transfer so they aren’t meant for gifting, but rather would be a lovely and inexpensive way to treat yourself. I sincerely hope you’ll take a moment to check out Beloved Jewelry, and don’t forget to pick up all the awesome gifts while you’re there.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/23/2016 – Kamiri

Kamiri DownstairsOnce again it’s Fab Free Designer Friday, and today’s featured designer is Kamiri! This shop is a ladies clothing store, with a mix of mesh and applier clothing. The best way to describe the clothing style at Kamiri would be colorful and fun! You’ll find a lot of cute flirty outfits in bright playful colors. This store is also really great for those who like applier clothing, it’s not often you find stores with so much to offer in the way of appliers. Additionally there are tons of way to score FREE or inexpensive items throughout the Kamiri store. Since there are so many gifts and goodies to be had, I split everything up into first and second floor finds. Pictured above are just the gifts and promotions I was able to find on the first floor.

As you land in the Kamiri shop, you’ll instantly see a long table full of various group gifts. Notice the bottom photo in the collage above. The Fabulously Free  in SL group exclusive gift is there as well. You’ll see it sitting next to the Fab Free sign on the table. Wear your Fab Free group tag and get this FREE gift if you haven’t already. For a preview, check out Katheryn’s post here. Just behind the gift table you’ll see a Midnight Madness board, from what I can tell there’s no target set, and everyone who clicks the board while wearing their Kamiri group tag gets the prize. The Kamiri group is FREE to join. Also downstairs, there is a promo offer of 75 lindens for a specific color version of one of Kamiri’s newest releases. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the most recent Kamiri group gifts. They are downstairs next to the circulation desk. As if that wasn’t enough there are more gifts upstairs!
Kamiri UpstairsHeading up the stairs, you’ll be greeted by 4 lucky letter boards with short wait time between letters! You’ll also notice several areas around the room that have discounted items. Then it’s hard to miss the cute little sitting area next to the stairs. You’ll want to bring a couple of friends, the sitting area is actually 3 camping chairs, each with a different prize. You’ll want to wear your Kamiri group tag for these, which is again FREE to join. Finally, you’ll see yet another long table packed with previous Kamiri group gifts. Gather your girlfriends and head over to Kamiri for lots of shopping and freebies, you won’t be disappointed!

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/18/2016 – Luziefee

Luziefee ExteriorHappy Friday Fab Free! Today’s Designer Friday post is all about Luziefee. The Luziefee brand was established in Second Life in 2011. It’s hard to believe it’s only been 5 years, it seems like the brand has been around much longer than that. It’s amazing how time works so differently in Second Life! In these Fab Free Designer Friday posts, I don’t always include a photo of the shop’s exterior, but I thought the storefront and surrounding area was so unique with the big cruise liner, that I couldn’t help sharing it with you. At Luziefee you’ll find women’s clothing, in mostly casual fashionable mesh styles, with some formal wear as well. There are also shoes, and a few fun accessories to be had. The range of style is such that just about anyone could shop at Luziefee and find something that suited their personal style. There are also many opportunities for gifts and inexpensive items.
LuziefeeThe best way to get some free swag at Luziefee is to join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of 150 lindens to join the Luzifee store group, however there are tons of FREE and inexpensive group gifts. As you enter the store you’ll be met with a half wall of the most recent group gifts which are FREE to all group members. Just wear the group tag. Also, the stacked vendors to the right of the wall are all group only vendors that allow you to purchase previous group gifts for just 10 lindens each. In the same area as the group gifts, you’ll find information about event items, and upcoming hunts. For some no fee FREE group swag, wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the Fab Free gift vendor. You’ll find it on the wall next to the entrance along with a group gift for Second Life Frees & Offers. Sheidey has blogged the Luziefee gift for Fab Free members in her post here. Needless to say, it’s definitely worth your while to take the time to check out Luziefee, assuming you haven’t already!

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.**

Infected Zombie Hunter

Infected Zombie HunterI found my Halloween costume, and just in time too! It seems like zombies and zombie hunters are everywhere this year, and for good reason. Like the vampires of years past, zombies have taken over television and movies in a big way. That said, when I saw this wicked bloody tank top from COCO, my mind instantly went to zombie land. Thankfully, Second Life is awash with creativity, and I was able to find most of what I needed to put this look together without letting go of too many lindens.

I mentioned the tank top as the centerpiece that inspired this “Infected Zombie Hunter” look. It’s one of several FREE group gifts available at COCO. Before I go into detail about the top, when going to the COCO store to add this to your wardrobe, be mindful of which section you’re shopping in. The COCO store is huge, and there are sections dedicated to their doll avatars as well as regular avatars. You’ll find a version of this top in both sections, so don’t get fooled like I did. Make sure you’re in the section with ladies clothing and not doll clothes. LOL That little bit of information out of the way, once you’re in the right place you’ll find a full wall of group gifts with a group joiner near by. The COCO group is FREE to join. Once you’re wearing your COCO group tag, all the gifts are FREE as well, just click the vendors. This bloody tank top gift is fully mesh, and comes in several body fit sizes, and standard mesh sizes.Infected Zombie Hunter CloseAnyone who knows me knows it would be completely out of character for me to go all gore and no glam, even on Halloween. I needed to be a little bloody but still wanted to keep it pretty, Izzie’s had just the thing. These bloody eyes and lips are from an applier package I found by Izzie’s for FREE on the Marketplace. The listing says it’s a limited time Halloween gift, so I’d imagine after today (Oct. 31st) the price will go up. These delicate blood drips can be applied either to the eyes, the lips, or both in 3 shades of red. This FREE set includes appliers for as well as classic system layers. I’m really thrilled with the end result, so don’t miss out on this fun bit of gore by Izzie’s while you can still get it at this fantastic freebie.

Speaking of the Marketplace, I also stumbled across this set of bloody eyes by Inkheart. These mesh eyes were just too perfect to pass up, especially since they are just 1 linden. These “vampire” eyes come in 3 mesh sizes, along with matching system layers. I think they would be spook-tacular with any ghoulish costume!

Continuing on with the idea of being glamorous at all times, this manicure from ZOZ was the perfect finishing touch. Who says a Zombie Hunter can’t have perfectly polished claws?! This particular shade of glossy red is part of the Fab Free exclusive group gift at ZOZ. Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the vendor on the circulation desk at the ZOZ main store, and you’ll be sent your FREE gift. The set has also been featured in one of Katherine’s beautiful posts, and of course in the Fab Free Group Gift Listing by Love.  The Fab Free Group Gift List shows the full set of fall colors that are included in this gorgeous nail polish gift.

Happy Halloween Fab Free!! Here are the details.
