Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun

I’m sure you’re all aware at this point that August is soon coming to a close, and with it it shall take the summer (for the most part…September can still be a scorcher where I am!).  I’m enjoying every minute of those precious rays by strolling down the beach and probably wearing stuff that would make me sweaty in RL.  But you know my SL body doesn’t come with sweat glands, so it’s all good!

A Huge Hat is What You Need

There are so many great gifts at The Hair Fair, I’m sure you’ve been reading all about the goodness here on Fab Free.  I found a fun accessory at the Iconic booth – this enormous chapeau that flops ever so alluringly.  It comes with an extensive HUD to change to a whole host of tropical looks, but I kept it pretty basic with black trim and a cute saying.  And oh, yes.  it’s FREE!

She Still Shines

I have been in a bit of a latex mood recently, and though you might not normally wear this fabric to stroll on the sand, I say just go for it.  I picked up this slinky little dress over at Beauty Factory.  I joined their group for 99L and it was all mine.  There are several other great gifts there too, so the join fee is beyond worth it.  The Vanjie dress comes in both pink and black and is a whole lotta fun. I’ve included the vendor pic below so you can easily see all the details.

Hell yeah I am a princess! This pastel hair style by Tram and the dainty pearl headband are giving me serious fantasy princess vibes. Both items are free gifts at the Hair Fair. My lavender princess transformation would not be complete without this glossy lip color by Shiny Stuffs. Oh, and the lippy by Shiny Stuffs is part of a free full palette of lip colors at The Free Dove. Keep reading for info about each of these fabulous freebies, or scroll down for full credits. Have fun Fab Free’rs!

I love the implied movement of this wispy hairstyle by Tram. It also happens to be a free gift at the Hair Fair. This pretty freebie comes in 2 pastel colors each with resize scripts. To get yours just head over to the Hair Fair and visit the Tram booth.

There is something special about pearls. This dainty pearl headband is a free gift by Cae at the Hair Fair.

I think the lip color I have on in the above photo is really beautiful. This lip gloss color is just 1 of 42 total colors in the new Shiny Stuffs gift at The Free Dove.

You get this super cute hair with a full fatpack and a HUD for the hair band as well. The accessory HUD has four solid colors and eight stripy ones so I bet this is going to match a lot in my closet.

My cute draped top is another fabulous freebie. This is “Cecillia” and it’s the free hunt prize for the King Arthur hunt at Have Unequal. It is really beautifully made and the textures are perfect.  Just find the miniature Excalibur in the Stone and it’s all you

Drink it Up

Drink it Up

Sometimes all you need for a great outfit in SL is some cute and fun accessories.  I love chasing down the little extras that make SL looks fun, and I found a few free ones to keep you looking fresh!

Fair Hair

You may have heard that The Hair Fair is going on right now, and boy oh boy is it full of goodness.  A portion of all sales goes to Wigs for Kids, so it’s not just fun but aiming to do some good in the world.  There are also some great free gifts offered up by some of the creators!  I stopped at the Ade booth and there I came across this sleek bob which comes in a full fatpack of fun colours as well as a styler HUD.  They also put out these very on-trend shades out too for free, and I’m having a great time looking imperiously over the rim at people!

Catching Tears

There’s a new free group gift over at Jackalope too, and it’s this amusing little milk carton of “boy tears”.  Don’t you fret though, there’s also a carton of “girl tears” included.  To grab this amusing little addition, just join the Jackalope group for free and click on the vendor by the front desk!

Mhhhhmmm!

Ready for my Close Up

Ready for my Close Up

I’m ready for my closeup today!  It’s a lovely Saturday in my part of the world, and October is creeping up on us, filled with all its delights.  I’m only slightly inching toward the realms of the creepy and autumnal, so I won’t toss you into the deep end quite yet.  Anyway, I’ll just be quiet and get to the gifts!

There’s More?

I mentioned the other day that SaNaRae is having an anniversary round, and there are plenty of free gifts to be had.  I picked up a few more when I was there that I really wanted to show you!  My eyes are a bit of a dark departure (this is the dipping my toe into the autumnal I was referring to, by the way), but I think they’re quite lovely!  They’re a free gift by Mudskin and come with a few other colour options.  They have appliers for Catwa and Lelutka as well as mesh eyes that you can reposition.  The striking turquoise eyeshadow is a quite generous gift by Zibska and has a pile of different colour options in the HUD.  This comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega, and LAQ as well as tattoo layers for system heads.   And finally, my oh so lovely earrings by Oxide are yet another gift I picked up at SaNaRae, and I highly enjoy the delicate starriness of it all!  Grab all your gifts by joining the SaNaRae group for free!

More Hair!

I found another lovely hair offering over at the Hair Fair!  I love the long, sleek layers (that I wish I could muster in RL) that are gifted to us for free by enVOGUE.  Hop your way over to the Hair Fair for a full fatpack of daring and natural hues.  Can’t say no to that!

Enjoy all the Autumn!

I love me some FREE latex.  I know it’s not everyone’s favourite look, but some days I think if you need to make a striking impression, then latex is the way to go.  There is a lot of latex in SL in general, but finding some that shines in that pleasing way can be a difficult task.  Finding some that shines in a pleasing way for free is almost impossible, but I’ve managed it! Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

The D’eVil Inside

I know I’ve sung the praises of D’eVil a bunch of times before, but really I can never get over the quality of the work, and the shininess of the latex is just to die for.  If you’ve never been before, then I highly suggest you stop by the shop because EVERYTHING is completely free there.  Yup.  Everything.  You never know what you might find – there are even some really nice shoes if you’re not into the whole outfit look!  Anyway, the Aroha dress is the most recent offering at D’eVil and comes in three parts – the cropped top, the corset and the long skirt.  It comes with a texturing HUD to meet all your colour and opacity needs!  Such fun!  The clothing at D’eVil is all sized for Maitreya bodies.

It’s Limited!

You may have noticed some of the coverage from Limt8 on the blog, and I’m showing off two more fun things that are available there:  My lipstick is a free gift from Lisa Walker.  There are a bunch of different colour options on the HUD, and it comes with appliers for Catwa and Lelutka.   My backdrop today is the free gift from Foxcity, and there are two different colour options in the gift box!  Join the Limit8 group for free to pick up a giant pile of awesomeness!

HAIR FAIR!

I’m sure you’ve heard all the buzz across the grid about Hair Fair!  Julianna mentioned the other day one of her finds, and I picked some coolness up too.  Most designers have a lovely free (or 1L) little gift out for you, so you’ll end up stocking up on awesome hair looks to last you for quite some time.  I am showing off the gift from Astrology, which has several different colour options in the HUD.  Nice right?  No need to join a group, just fight through the lag and pick up all the presents!  It’s totally worth it!

Shine on, you crazy diamonds!

Nutty Little Friends
Good morning Fabulouses!

Wandering Leaf

This month at The Arcade Gacha, Decoy released the sweetest gacha set called Wandering Leaf.  This set is just 50L per play and includes 15 commons and 2 rares with texture change HUDS.  Wandering Leaf is rigged for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and has the loveliest gold leaf detailing!  I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the colours in the set, but I really liked the pink with the brown as shown in the ad (which I have included below).

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

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

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
