You Know Everything


You Know Everything

Hello Fab Free’rs, this post is going to be a little bit different in that it’s all about the new male head gift at Akeruka, and a new group gift couples pose at WRONG rather than ladies fashion. Thankfully I have this handsome gentleman of mine here to help. The Akeruka head wouldn’t look even half as good on me as it does on him! Keep reading, and I’ll share more about each of these fantastic group gifts.

That face! The Akeruka Clay head is the latest group gift for Akeruka group members. This male head is a full Akeruka Deluxe mesh bento head complete with animations. Also included with this gift is the Akeruka skin in multiple tones with facial hair options, and body appliers for Slink (Omega), Signature (Omega), and Belleza bodies. The Akeruka group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. To get yours you will need to wear your Akeruka group tag, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. This gift will be available until July 6th. After July 6th, the Clay head will be for sale at the regular price.

The pose Blue so patiently sat in with me while I took this photo is a free group gift at WRONG. There are actually several group gifts at WRONG, and the store group is free to join. I like the potential narrative this pose lends itself to. The pose is named “You Know Everything” which I also liked. It’s true, Blue pretty much knows everything. This free group gift at WRONG includes individual his and hers poses, along with a cool modern chair to pose in. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad for this pose by WRONG below so you can get the full effect.

WRONG. You know everything

Here are the details, happy shopping!

Proper Pinup


Seaside PinUp

Welcome to the blog Fab Free! It was a warm bright sunny day for me in Second Life today, and I felt every bit a proper pinup girl at the beach. To get the look I had some help from a few of the many free gifts in the shopping regions of the Second Life 16th Birthday event. I picked up what felt like a metric ton of freebies, however for this post I want to share with you the SL16B gifts by Narcisse, ICONIC, and Pyscho Byts.

First, the bright red polka dotted monokini is the SL16B gift by Narcisse. It comes in this single color, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only. To get yours, all you need to do is head over to the Narcisse shop in the SL16B Aurelian region and pick it up for free.

Next up, the long side swept hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by ICONIC. It comes in a fatpack of colors, and has a style hud that lets you flip the hair so it’s either over the left shoulder or the right. You’ll find it waiting for free at the ICONIC shop in SL16B’s Tinseled Region.

Finally, the reason for the trio of photos is to show you 3 of the 6 static poses in the “Lili” pose set by Psycho Byts. Each of the six poses is in what I would call a pinup style. The set has individual poses, and a pose hud. This set is one of 2 free gift pose sets by Psycho Byts just waiting to be picked up at SL1B’s Golden region.

Thanks for reading, here are the details:

Hair – ICONIC:STEPHANIE::TOTAL STYLER – Free Gift @SL16B Tinseled
Head – Catwa – Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Jewelry – Cae :: Marina :: Collection – @FaMESHed until 6/27
Monokini – -Narcisse- Ashley Monokini – Free Gift @SL16B Aurelian
Tattoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted Tattoo & Somber Tattoo
Body – Maitreya Lara
Poses – .{PSYCHO:Byts}. Lili Pose Pack – Free Gift @SL16B Golden

Feelin’ Friday

Feelin' Friday

It’s Friday everyone!  The mystical land of freedom and joy (well, at least for those who don’t work on weekends, I suppose).  Today I feel like letting my wild side out a little bit, because we all know that doesn’t happen often enough (cue laugh track)!  I may just have found the outfit for that perfect Friday feeling!

Lana at it Again

Lana has been making some really interesting clothing recently, a lot focused around some appealingly shiny and semi transparent plastic material of some ilk.  If you’ve been itching to try it out but aren’t quite sure what it would look like on, there’s a perfect chance to get your mitts on some right now as a FREE group gift at the mainstore!  The Abi skirt is a shiny holographic concoction with an HUD included to change to all sorts of amazing colours,  and I kind of really love it!  Join their group for free, pick it up (and the other gifts there, while you’re at it) and you’re good to go!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Liaising with Love

Love mentioned the other day that there are a whole bunch of goodies over at The Liaison Collaborative.  Join their free group, and you’ll be able to pick up a host of cute things, including the hair I’ve got going on by Iconic!  It comes in a whole fatpack of awesome colours and just looks absolutely chic and gorgeously mussed, in my humble opinion.  The group gifts are all on the little carts hanging around the middle of the event!

Time for some craziness, hold on tight!

If I Had One Wish

If I Had One Wish
Hello Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for the weekend. Maybe I’ve watched too many romantic comedies, or read too many cheesy love stories, but I’ve been daydreaming about a romantic summer getaway lately. I could really use some gorgeous scenery and a little romance in my life! This little dress (emphasis on little) is a free group gift at Simple. I will say I felt sexy wearing it. The fruit and basket of spirits is another free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, this time from Aphrodite Shop. I really can’t think of a better way to start of a romantic weekend then with a little bubbly and a sexy dress.

The Dress – I wasn’t exaggerating when I said this dress is short, you’ve been warned! I’d even consider wearing it with some shorts, it’d be cute! This flirty dress is a free group gift at Simple. At this time the Simple group is also free to join at this time. This gift comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only in the blue floral pattern shown.

The Basket & Fruit – I have Aphrodite Shop to thank for the free gift basket of drinks and goodies, along with the spread of fresh fruit. This decorative item is a free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. The Fabulously Free in SL group is always always always free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Heiress

The Heiress

TGIF, fabulous readers! A few days ago, I paid a visit to On9 and found BUNCHES of gifts set out from the vendors for this round. I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here today.

NOTE: To pick up these gifts, you will need to head over to On9 and join the free in-world group.

Take Back Your Mink

Just kidding, don’t you dare! 

When I put on this gorgeous satin dress with the mink jacket, I felt sort of Paris Hilton-y, so that’s where the name for this post came from. 😉

The Marlena dress and jacket is the On9 gift from AnaMarkova. It comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The dress and jacket are separate pieces, so you could wear the dress without the jacket, or wear the jacket with another outfit if you choose. I like versatility. 🙂

Dressed to Impress… With FREE Gifts

The fashionable AnaMarkova dress isn’t the only On9 gift I’m wearing today. Here are a few more!

ICONIC’s gift is a generous pack of hair. Katherine includes 6 color packs, as well as a styler HUD so you can choose from 2 different styles.

HAYSURIZA is gifting a huge set of pearl jewelry. The set includes:

  • Necklace* (includes optional add-on decoration)
  • Bracelet (optional add-on decoration)
  • Earrings for day wear*
  • Earrings for evening wear
  • Choker
  • Ring* (2 options)

* The asterisked items are the ones I’m wearing in this photo.

So Sparkly

The final On9 gift I’m sharing today is this glittery nail palette from Alaskametro<3.

alaskametro<3 "New Years" nail appliers (black/copper) for on9 - gift

Mani/pedi appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled hands are included. You can apply all the same color or a mix of all five if you prefer. The Maitreya HUD has a button to apply a mix of all the colors.

A girl really can’t have too much glitter, can she? ❤

My Own World

My Own World

Panic Mode

I woke up this morning with a touch of “holiday panic.” You know, that feeling you get when the holidays are creeping up on you waaaay too fast. Your heart starts racing, you feel like you can’t breathe… you break out in a cold sweat. Yeah. It seems like summer was just starting… and now it’s almost Thanksgiving. 😮

I headed out in search of a quiet place to collect my thoughts and wound up on the couch at a coffee bar on the Oh Deer sim. A couple of lattes and some smooth jazz later, I think I might be kinda-sorta-maybe ready to tackle the holidays.

Or maybe I’ll just start with a turkey and see how it goes.

A Sweater and Leather

Before running off in a coffee panic, I managed to get myself dressed in the latest group gift from Ghee. The Ombre Sweater and Leather Pants duo come in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh standard XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A texture-change HUD is included so you can choose from brown, black, burgundy, and blue ombre for the sweater, and the same colors (without the ombre) for the pants.

Since the sweater is cropped, and I was cold thanks to the snow and all, I added a tank top underneath. I picked up the Enora tanks by Edenia on the Marketplace for 1L and used the included appliers for Maitreya. Check out Pru’s post HERE to see what they look like without a sweater.

To “top” things off, I added a cute hat. You can pick up this derby – as well as a baseball cap, felt hat, and Homburg hat – as a free gift from ICONIC at HairOLogy. I didn’t realize how pretty it was until I turned on my windlight and saw the lovely textures!

Each hat comes with a HUD containing several colors (varies by hat), and all are resizeable from the HUD. I’m sure they would also look great on the guys.

Ok, now that I’m all latte’d up, I think I’m ready to brave Costco to do some shopping. Until next time! 😀

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. I’ve got a few fantastic gifts to share with you, starting with this fabulous skirt from Gato. The tropical print and bright colors of this FREE subscriber gift skirt just screams summer fun. This FREE gift from Gato comes in a Maitreya fit only. To get your copy, head over to Gato and join the subscriber, the gift will be delivered automatically.

I always enjoy the group gifts from Empire, but I especially like these adorable heels. They are the April group gift at Empire and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. They come in the usual sizes, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Maitreya, and they include a color change hud that gives you 20 color options and allows you to change individual parts of the shoe. Also, the cute little bows at the heel are optional. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 499 linden, and currently there is more than one group gift still available.

Don’t Say a Word

Don't Say a Word

“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.”

Feeling Introspective…

When I saw the group gift from Le Morte, I knew I had to have it. The join fee is 50L but I wanted the mouth tape gift of “Silence” as it spoke to me on so many levels. I’m a person who speaks out after all. And the idea of representing silence seemed important. Because I really don’t think we should remain silent when issues are important to us. I won’t get into politics or issues here, but I’ll offer a heartfelt plea to all of you… speak out. Don’t remain silent when something is important to you. I am pretty sure the saying goes that you’ll regret the things you didn’t do, more than the things you did do. That’s sort of the idea I’m going on here.

Hairology is still going on!

On a lighter note, the Hairology Anniversary celebration is still going strong, and you can still pick up lots of FREE and 1L gifts of beautiful hair until November 30th, when the event ends. I picked up my beautiful hair from Iconic called “Michelle” as a FREE gift from Hairology. It came with a fatpack hud of colors. There are lots of other gifts to be had at this event so it is a not-to-be-missed one! Mark it down and teleport in!
