Changing of the Seasons

Changing of the Seasons

Hey FabFree! I can’t believe spring is already over and summer is here… it’s time to move out of these spring clothes and get ready for summer fun! I am soooo pumped for July – you don’t even know how much. The FabFree@15 Event is coming on July 8th, and part of the reason I’ve been posting so much in the last week is to I can prepare to blog our first event! I’m so excited for this summer! So, now I’m back with new post, and this time it’s to show a free hairstyle and some free makeup to keep you going until the event starts. 😉

Back to Hair Fair

It’s time to show more free hair from the Hair Fair! I am wearing the free gift from Ade today. The “Lia” hairstyle includes a style-changing hud, different sizes to accommodate different head sizes, and several colour huds. It’s very cute. 💕You can read more details about the Hair Fair event in my post here.

Lots of New Gifts @ Pout!

The makeup items I am wearing today are all products from Pout! that I recently found out are free.

  • First off, Pout! has some cute new group gifts. I am wearing one of them right now, which is a set of BOM eyeliners in 4 different styles made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX heads. Their group is currently free to join, and there’s a load of past group gifts to pick up as well!
  • Pout! also have some new free gifts on their freebies wall. These require no group join at all. Just buy them for 0L and they are yours. From that lot, I am wearing a new pair of eyeshadows, which are also BOM layers made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX. These come in a bunch of colour options. Both gifts are striking!

Coming Soon

Here’s a fun BOM tip! Make sure that you apply the eyeliners after the eyeshadow. You always want to “layer” your BOM layers on top of each other. You can also re-arrange them by “editing” your outfit and moving them up in the order you want them to appear on your avatar.

Have fun, FabFree!

Want an Ice Lolly?

Pops

Anyone care for a popsicle? I have so many I don’t know what to do with them all. I hope you FabFree readers are hungry because I’m passing them out!

More Finds at SL19B, Again

I am loving SL19B. It gives me lots of blogging material which I am always in dire need of. Even if I did binge 2 Britbox television series doing it, it was worth it in the end for all the cute things I picked up to show you! I have 2 cute little free gifts to share from the event today.

  • My cute hairstyle is the free gift from Ginko Hair @ SL19B. This hair comes in 1 colour only, no fancy huds included this time around. You can resize it by touching it, and you can move it up and down to fit it to your head properly. It’s cute! 😍
  • The cute popsicle collection I am holding and the one dangling from my mouth is the free gift for all at rainn @ SL19B. rainn also has a 300L store credit gift for their group members. You can read all the details about the store credit and gift cards available at SL19B in my recent post here.

Here are the links to our coverage of SL19B so far! This has to be the best FabFree coverage of a Shop&Hop yet. I’m sure we will find even more to show you before the event ends…

What’s new at Altice

Of course, I can’t stop there. My friend recently took me to Altice and to my surprise they had a few gifts out that I had not picked up yet. Altice’s group is free to join, but their group gifts cost 1L each. Your L will not be returned for these gifts so be aware of that. I am showing:

  • A new BOM eyeshadow gift, which works on Lelutka EvoX heads only. These come in 9 colourful options and it’s very pretty. You must use BOM layers to use these!
  • I am also wearing the cute little nose piercing gift. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the colour of the rim of the piercing but the main gem on it is white. This piercing will work on any head!

Have fun, FabFree!

Frilly & Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Hey FabFree! Sometimes a girl just wants to feel frilly and pretty in pink, even if it’s not my typical style. I set up a cute bedroom scene to match my mood and the cute new finds I have to show you today.

Cute Finds for 25L Tuesday

25L Tuesday is on today! Paper.Sparrow set their sale items out early, and they usually keep it out for the week. Double win! I love this because I am horrible at following daily sales. I just forget about them and miss them most times, but not at Paper.Sparrow. They have this adorable night shirt and bag for only 25L each! The 25L version of the shirt comes in black and white, and the bag comes in white, grey, and black. See below for a closeup of these cute sale items! Go soon to get them, as this is a limited-time sale.

Sizes Included (night shirt):

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

Coming Soon

I also have a few pretty goodies from SL19B that you can see in my close-up. These are all totally free gifts.

  • The lovely lipstick is an applier gift from Ives Beauty @ SL19B. It includes 8 lip tones for Lelutka Evo, Lelutka EvoX, and Genus heads.
  • My pretty earrings are the free gift from Poeme @ SL19B. These come in several lovely colours.
  • My face skin is the gift from Purple @ SL19B, and it comes in a full fatpack of tones. This is made for Lelutka EvoX, and it includes ear skins and neck fixes.

Pretty Poo

Now head back over to Paper.Sparrow, where you will find the funny “Pretty Poo” decor air freshener bottles that cost 75L per colour. You can see how I used these to decorate my room in my scene below. These are the “Vanilla” and “Strawberry” versions. These will help you smell so nice in SL!

Coming Soon

Have a wonderful day, FabFree!

The Queen in Her Kingdom

Coming soon

There’s only two days left of Fantasy Faire, and I poked around the various regions of the event to look for gifts. There are some out, but they are a bit tricky to find. One I found was this free animated golden flower, which I thought was gorgeous. The item is made by Gabriel, and it includes the hand pose and light orbs that float above it. You will find it for free near the landing of the Tenpayo region here. It all ends on May 18th, so go soon!

Queen Natalia

Coming soon

Now it’s time for the feature of my post today, which is this beautiful “Natalia” skin for Lelutka EvoX heads. This is a free gift from ItGirls. I am wearing the skin in “Rose”, but it comes in a fatpack of other dark and light natural shades. Each shade also includes the lovely dark eyebrows.

For this particular EvoX skin, you will need to own a Lelutka Evolution head. All previous Lelutka Evolution heads have been updated to EvoX, so be sure to click the update button in your head folder if you haven’t had the time or interest in updating yet. EvoX is a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend it because the skins are fabulous! Once you have your EvoX head, just click the “EvoX” button on the HUD to put your head in EvoX mode, which allows you to use more detailed skin and makeup options.

Once this is all done, you will notice that with the free skin from ItGirls, that the ears and face skins are separated. You need to wear a separate tattoo for the ears. So you then need to find the matching ear skin to go with the face skin. All of the face skins and ear skins are included in the free gift from ItGirls. You can also get a pack of free EvoX ear skins, which is available for all to get on the front desk at ItGirls.

Sizes Included (ItGirls skin & ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

What about that sneaky neckline?

I’m sure some of you have noticed that nasty neckline that can pop up when you wear an EvoX head skin that doesn’t include a body skin. Not to fear, for Velour is here. Velour has a package of free ear skins and neck fixes for EvoX heads. To get the package, look on the front desk to get the pack for free. No group join is needed. The neck fixes work perfectly to blend the ItGirls skin with another body skin. I am currently wearing a body skin from a different creator entirely, one of 7 Deadly S[K]ins‘ BOM skins in the Caramel tone, and it blends so smoothly! These neck fixes should work with any companies that use Velour tones in their head skins and you should have few problems wearing the head skins with a different body skin.

Sizes Included (Velour neck fixes and ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Well, that wasn’t complicated at all! 😉 If you have any questions about EvoX skins feel free to post your queries in the comments.

Get Lucky on MP!

Feelin' Lucky?

It’s that time of year!  We all get to be Irish…except the Scottish – we are always Scottish :-). BUT, there are amazing finds on Marketplace for you to plan out your special St. Patty’s Day outfit! This cute little top and panties set says “Wanna Get Lucky?” on the front of the shirt and “Feelin’ Lucky” on the butt of the panties. The footie socks come along with the outfit, too, but you will need your own shoes. This outfit by Snowfall Sinsations is SOOOO cute, and for 49L, you really can’t go wrong.

The little bowtie and hat come in a set, too, and they are just 1L at !!!BHB!!!. The bowtie has a resizer and the hat can be adjusted.

Hat & Bow Tie

Let’s get ready to welcome St. Pat the right way!!!

Mystical Beauty

Mythical Market Hunt
Hunts are really one of my favorite things to do in SL.  I also like events.  It’s awesome to see all the different creators come together and offer fresh new styles.  I love an event that is themed AND has a hunt, and I was not at all disappointed in the Mystical Market Love Potion Edition Event & Hunt.  The hunt items are 10L but no group is needed, but you can view them here in advance.  BUT, definitely go to each store because there are free gifts, too.

Most everything in the picture above was found in the hunt or as a freebie.  Let’s dig in!

The outfit by QE Designs is actually labeled as pajamas (Veronica pajamas – Dark Vintage Lace), but I would totally wear this to a club.  It comes with a 4-color HUD including black, berry, and blue (and the purple I am wearing).  Cost: 10L (Hunt)

The Outfit!

The Hottie Heels are made by Grumble and come in red.  They are really cute (and look very sharp – both literally and figuratively).  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Potion Necklace by Little Bat comes in two versions: Love or Hate.  I am a lover, so I went with Love for the picture.  You can click to resize it.

The Love Potion Paper Earrings are made by Byrne and are super cool.  First, they come in pink, purple, and red, but each color also comes with both a static and a glow version that blinks slowly!  I am wearing the glow version, but you really can’t see them blinking.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Earrings Glow!

The circular tapestry rug by QE Designs is really pretty, and this is one of three FREE gifts in the QE shoppe at the Mystical Market. Cost: FREE!!!

The red and black Gothica Pillows come with red wine glasses and are by Angelic Designs.  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The rose and thorns decor by Love is so pretty.  You can resize this and it works on the ground or on a mantlepiece.  Cost 10L (Hunt)

The backdrop is called Black Witch Moth Tapestry by Dragon Magick Wares.  It’s resizable which I loved!  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The Gothic Valentine’s Gift Boxes by Laminak come in 4 styles.  They have little skulls on them and the ribbon colors differ on each box.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The pose is from Something New called Just Take My Heart at the Cheeky 69 event.  It comes with both the pose and the little heart.  Cost 69L (Event).

It’s a Wrap!

It's a Wrap!
Well, it’s a wrap.  Valentine’s Day is over, and all of the pink things will turn to green as we head toward St. Patrick’s Day.  But, before we go…check out this SWEET new group gift from Dead Doll!  While the buy in cost for the group is L250, the gifts are always sensational.  Over the years, I’ve belonged to groups that had high price tags that weren’t worth it…but Dead Doll?  Oh yeah, it’s worth it!!!

This cute little towel set comes with both the towel and head wrap. The little clip is also customizable. The whole outfit is just so incredibly cute, and I had to share!  The Hot Tub was a prize from the MadPeas Hunt I blogged about here.

I also stripped my avatar down so you can see waht she looks like without any makeup in her default Lelutka Evo X & Maitreya base layer.  The shape is custom.

  • Maitreya

Love Day Beauty

Cuteness
It’s finally here!  Valentine’s Day!  What, you ask, does Desi wear on this festive day of love and sexiness?  Well, she wears what she always wears…cute stuff that she finds for FREE!!!

The Group Gifts at Brillancia are absolutely terrific and, ladies, you may not have gotten roses today, but you can join this group for FREE!!! The newest gift, the Anna dress, comes in all kinds of color HUD options.  You can switch up the skirt and top and the top and lower bands to find a style you like.  I paired the dress with the Group Gift heels named Arya (also free!).  These, too, are customizable…the leather, the laces, and the heel. I looked around the store, and I really like Brillancia‘s style.  Everything sort of looks the same around the grid as fashion trends hit all the stores at once, and Brillancia has some really sweet and unique outfits that are so pretty.  The designer, Eva Chekov, is also really nice.  I had a question, and she was super helpful.  I definitely shop at stores where the designers are nice!

The Boots!

So….whether you have a date or not for the big V-Day celebrations, you can still wander around the grid looking sensational.  There are a heap of free group gifts, and you will have so much fun trying everything on and working with the HUDS to create your custom happy look!

In Love with Love

Waiting for Love

I love Valentine’s Day Season. Blush and Sunset Pink are my favorite colors, and I love to love. I am a die hard Romantic, and Valentine’s Day is full of beautiful things that I simply love looking at. I couldn’t wait to pick up Raindale’s February Gift….I mean LOOK at this beautiful setting? The set comes with the heart shaped trellis, the bench, the adorable stuffy bear, the heart walkway, the flower tree, the tray and the little bucket. It all comes in parts AND in two versions ready to rez. The bench has poses for singles and couples (PG) and adjustments for both position AND rotation. You can move things around and make the space your very own.  I added the petals and roses,  so they are not included.

The group costs 250L to join, but the monthly gifts are always amazing. The holiday gifts are ALSO amazing, and there also cool hunts like they had for their Anniversary. In my game of Group Space Tetris, Raindale is never on the cut list, and is very worth the buy-in.

Overall, I had a fun time putting a love scene together, and hope you enjoy it, too!!!
