The Sea is Calling Me

Snorkel
Hi There Fab Free’rs! To those who celebrate it, I hope you had a fun July 4th. Mine was almost unbearably humid but still a lot of fun. With all the humidity down here in the south, I have been craving beach a beach day, heck I’d settle for a pool day! Soon, very soon I’ll find my way to the water. Until then I’ll day dream here in Second Life, and do my best to look good the part! haha

Snorkel

I love this goggle/snorkel set from Rir Life. It’s a current group gift and I think it’s such a fun accessory. The gift comes with 2 versions, one to wear pushed up off your face (shown) and one to wear over your eyes. Also, how cute are the flamingos? Super cute! The details in this FREE group gift at Rir Life are great. The Rir Life group has a little join fee of 10 lindens. Once you’re wearing your group tag, just click the little gift back under the ad and you’ll get your copy. Also, the set can be easily sized via touch menu.

Trikini

My new snorkel set of course needed a new swimsuit to go with it. This cute trikini is even cuter on. I really should have taken a photo of the back, so you can see how it all comes together in a cool way. This swimsuit is a current FREE group gift at LANA. The best part is it comes with a color change hud. There are a few colorful patterned options, and several sold color options. The LANA group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. Wear your LANA group tag and click the gift ad to get your copy of this gorgeous swimsuit.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and one called “Original” which could be Slink Physique or a Standard Mesh. I’m not certain.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

Love Me Like You Do

Love Me

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m so glad the weekend is finally here.  I’ve been a bit under the weather in RL, and look forward to some down time for the next couple of days where I can just take it easy.  It’s time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy!

Nothing Wrong About This 

It happened again…. my hound with a nose for fashion took advantage of me not feeling well, and slipped out of his leash while we were on our morning stroll.  I guess since I wasn’t feeling well, I wasn’t walking fast enough for him!  When I finally caught up to him as he sat waiting outside the This is Wrong Shop, he thumped his tail happily, then led me over to the gift display vendor.  He had discovered a super sexy, free group gift to share with you today.  “Love Me” frames your curves in a dark rose mini dress adorned with black lace flowers.  With straps that criss-cross in front and a deeply scooped back and tummy section, this frock allows you to flaunt your flawless skin while still providing coverage in all key areas.   The This is Wrong group currently has a 100L join fee, however, including this gorgeous dress, there are 10 group gifts available for members, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Ripley and I plan to return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – little bones. Queen – Past Group Gift (2015)

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

SkinEssences – Thea (Catwa & Omega) – Currently @Kustom 9

Sunglasses – ^^Swallow^^ Metropolitan Sunglasses – 50L for Hello Tuesday

Time for a Little TCF

Maye & TCF
Hello Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. So I decided to take some of Love’s advice from her recent post “Finally… FaMESHed” about entering an event and I am happy to report that I was able to get into the Anniversary round of The Chapter Four. Given the meager abilities of my little laptop, I knew it would be a task to manage the event. Still, the gifts were completely worth the time I spent camera-shopping for the little pink TCF Anniversary gift boxes. I’m just going to tell you now, there are tons of gifts. I’m not even sure I picked them all up, but I gave it a good try. To get the gifts at each vendor, you’ll need to be wearing your The Chapter Four group tag. Currently there is a paltry group join fee of 50 lindens. I know that’s not what everyone likes to hear, in my opinion however, it’s well worth it just for these TCF Anniversary gifts. That said, this will the first, of at least two, maybe three posts showing off my favorites of all the fantastic gifts. I want to make sure you get a good preview, so you won’t feel so bad about that group join fee. First, let’s talk about this pretty face.

It’s Gonna Be Maye

Freckles always win in my book. These freckles are courtesy of the May group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The aptly named Maye skin comes in Omega appliers for the head and body, in the tones Sand and Apricot. If freckles aren’t your thing, there’s a non freckled version in both tones as well. You will need to join the 7 Deadly Skins group to get your May group gift. The group has a one time join fee of 225 lindens, and there are monthly gifts available for men and women.

Flowers For Your Hair

Starting from the top so to speak, this pretty floral hair wreath is the FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Cheveux. The flower crown comes in this single color, and can be resized via touch menu. Also in the package you’ll find a demo for the Cheveux hair pictured in the ad.

Ribbon For Your Neck

The cute little ribbon choker is another FREE TCF gift. This one is from .BF. and it comes with a color change hud with several solid colors for the ribbon only. There’s also a separate hud for adjusting the size. It gives you a great amount of control over the choker’s size so you can get an exact fit.

Polish For Your Nails

If you’ve been looking for a solid collection of pretty nail appliers all in one hud, it’s waiting for you at TCF. The FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Aleutia is a manicure set with 30 separate beautiful colors. That is not a typo, there are 30 colors to choose from. There are 3 separate huds included, one for Slink hands, one for Maitreya hands, and one for Belleza hands.

A Cute Top to Tie it All Together

And finally, for now, this bright colorful crop top is the FREE TCF gift from GATO. I love the bright colors! Fortunately and unfortunately the top is a Maitreya applier only. No other appliers or classic  layers are included.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Little Sass

A Little Sass

Sass December Group Gift 

Hello Again Fab Free’rs I trust you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and are excited it’s Monday, right?! No? Okay so maybe no one is excited for Mondays, but we are excited about freebies and this one is definitely worth some excitement.

This adorable plaid bra and pantie set is the December group gift at Sass and it was just too pretty to resist. Did I mention the plaid? Plaid, like paisley is an often irresistable pattern for me. The gift is absolutely FREE, you will need to get “Sassified” by joining the Sass group. The group is FREE to join. This gift at Sass includes an omega applier only. Each piece, the top, bottom, and matching stockings (not shown) can be worn together or separately. Also, you’ll notice there are several other FREE group gifts available.

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.

Dark Grace

Snapshot_004
In time with Astrid’s 25L Tuesday post for today [HERE], I have news about another 25L Tuesday find that you might like!  Just in time for Halloween priced at just 25L today, Belle Epoque has this blood stained version of her very pretty fitmesh Grace Dress which she has affectionately named Dark Grace.

To complete my bloody look today, I have added the Punk’d makeup applier that has added bruised eyes, a busted lip and a bit of blood to the nose.  Not too blood drippy, just a little bit of beat up from a long night of dark mischief!  This is a free group gift at The Horror that is compatible with the system face in the form of a tattoo layer and also Omega for Omega compatible mesh heads… like my Catwa Candy Head.
