Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Get What You Give

Get What You Give
Merry Christmas Eve Fab Free’rs! I sincerely hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday. If you’re like me and you’re procrastinating on all the baking and gift wrapping you have left to do, I have the perfect way to spend your time! Fabulous group gifts from Vinyl and HUWE are just waiting to be picked up. Stay tuned and I’ll tell you all about them.

Vinyl

I’m never not excited about group gifts from Vinyl. There are several group gifts available at the Vinyl main store, however I think the most recent gift might be my favorite so far. These super cute snowboarding pants are a group gift version of one of the new releases at Vinyl. The details really are what make these pants awesome. They have little knit patterned details that are Christmas-y but not over the top. How cute are those reindeer?!  To get yours, you’ll need to join the Vinyl group, it’s FREE to join, and click the group gift.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

HUWE

It’s never been a secret that I love tattoos, and I think this one is very pretty. This dark detailed upper body tattoo is a current group gift at HUWE. I really like the phrase scripted across the lower part of the tattoo. It reads “You get what you give.” I think that is a fair statement for the most part. The details are very nice in this tattoo also. To get yours, join the HUWE group which is 10 linden to join. Then click on the group gift vendor at HUWE and your gift will be delivered.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Can’t Sleep

Can't Sleep
Hello there Fab Free’rs! Sorry to have been a little absent lately, I’m sure you all know how it is when real life decides to get in the way.  That said, I have been a little tired and I think I’m due for a day of doing nothing. In preparation for my day of well nothing I picked up the latest group gift for Fab Free group members at Satus Inc. The gift from Satus Inc. matches perfectly with these inexpensive tube socks from Classy Chics on the Marketplace. I also picked up the perfect pillows for lounging around at Zen Creations.

Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap!

This over sized pajama shirt is a FREE gift at Satus Inc. for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. An over-sized shirt is my favorite lazy day lounge wear. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. To get your gift, head over to Satus Inc. and wear your Fab Free group tag. Then just click the gift vendor. The shirt reads “Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap” and I have to tell you I often agree with that statement!

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, FitMesh (XS – XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

Sleepy Pillows

These whimsical throw pillows are a current group gift at Zen Creations. Each pillow can change color via touch, and can be displayed together as shown or individually. The Zen Creations group is also FREE to join at this time. You’ll need to wear the Zen Creations group tag to get this FREE set of pillows.

Tube Socks

I secretly hope that tube socks never go out of style. Maybe they were never in style in the first place. Either way these socks are perfect for a day of do-nothing-ness. These socks are from a shop called Classy Chics on the Marketplace. They come as a Maitreya applier only for just 25 lindens. The hud has six color variations, five of which are white sock with colored stripes, and one black sock with white stripes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Siren of the Sea

Siren of the SeaKelpies

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s the end of the week already?! I know I’m ready for the weekend. I’ve talked before about being drawn to the sea, about having a great love for the water. When I saw this kelpie jewelry set group gift at Vengeful Threads, I might have squealed with delight! Half fish half horse, these mythological creatures are a favorite of mine. What better excuse to fashion my pixel self into a benevolent siren of the sea. The Vengeful Threads group gift is FREE to all group members and the group is FREE to join at this time. The gift includes the gauged kelpie earrings and matching septum piercing.

Tresses Worthy of a Siren

Thanks to Astrid having posted about the Anniversary round of TWE12VE, I decided to check it out for myself. You can take a look at her post featuring a few gifts from the TWE12VE event here. Needless to say I am not at all disappointed in the gifts I picked up. Keeping with the number 12 theme, each vendor has a single gift set out for just 12 lindens. These long pastel locks are a TWE12VE event gift from Firelight Hair. This luscious long hair style from Firelight Hair comes in rigged and unrigged versions, as well as a fit for the bustier ladies. Additionally there is a single color hud with pastel color options.

Opalescent Claws

There is something mythological about the opalescent shimmer of the nail applier gift at TWE12VE by LIVIA. It is really beautiful in person. I can honestly say that even with my usual preference of dark polish, this is my new favorite manicure. The set from LIVIA will work for both fingernails and toenails. The all-in-one hud allows you to pick between 3 variations of this beautiful polish, or use all 3 of them at once. Like all the gifts at the TWE12VE event, this one is just 12 linden.

Appliers Included (all in 1 hud): Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Give Me a Reason

To Love You
Hello There Fab Free’rs! It’s been a long week for me in that place called real life. Needless to say I’m glad to be back in virtual reality. Today’s post features a few more FREE gifts from The Coven Lunar Festival, the August Group gift from Truth, and some inexpensive lingerie from Milk Tea.

Beautiful Blue

This sweet pastel blue lingerie set is a FREE group gift by Milk Tea for the Teleport Hub group members. You’ll find this gift at the Milk Tea main store. Look for a small sitting area to one side of the shop, there you’ll see the Teleport Hub group joiner and the gift box set to the Teleport Hub group. The group has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. The gift includes the applier lingerie set shown in this pastel blue shade. It also includes a shirt and pant layer for classic non mesh avatars.

Appliers Included:  Omega, Slink, Maitreya (one applier with all 3 options)

Elie

The long bob hairstyle named “Elie” that Pru is wearing is the August group gift for Truth VIP members. I love that this gift not only comes in a fatpack so you get every hair color available, but it also has a stylist hud for some fun style options. You can choose to wear the hair tucked behind the right or left ear, down on both sides, or tucked behind both ears. There are 8 total style variations. This cute hairstyle also has bobby pins when the hair is worn over the ear. The included hud will allow you to change the color of the pins, or choose to make them invisible. Additionally, there are rigged and unrigged versions of the hair included. The Truth VIP group has a one time join fee of 350 lindens.
A Reason
You might recall my previous post that featured a few of the FREE gifts at The Coven Lunar Festival, you can get a look at it here. There are tons of FREE gifts available at the event. I chose to include a few more in this post because I liked them too much not to share them.

Septum Piercing

Arise put out this pretty purple septum piercing as their The Coven Lunar Festival event gift. In the package you’ll get the piercing in a script free version, and one that includes resize scripts. You will need to join The Coven group and wear the group tag to get the gift. There is a group joiner at the landing point. The Coven Lunar Festival gifts are all in little black cauldrons. Just click the cauldron while wearing the group tag and your gift will be sent to you. The group is FREE to join.

Give Me a Reason

Personally, I am not  always a fan of tattoos that are mostly text. I think this one is very cute and simple, and it looks great when applied. This tattoo is The Coven Lunar Festival gift from Nanika. This is an applier tattoo only. With each applier you will be able to choose either dark, medium, or light depending on how dark you want the tattoo to appear. This gift will also require The Coven group tag.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve got a couple of group gifts I’ve been dying to share with you. Technically one is a Lucky Letter board prize, but we will get into that in a moment. I don’t know about you, but I am of the personal opinion that sometimes being blonde is more fun.

QTPIE

Whether you’re in agreement about blonde hair or would rather have any other color, you’re in luck because this super cute hairstyle is a current fat-pack group gift from Love. That’s right, you get all the color huds the Love brand offers.  The Love main location is temporarily under construction, though the owner/designer says it shouldn’t be under construction for much longer. The good news is this FREE group gift is available in the group notices. The Love group is also FREE to join. Once you’ve joined the group (I was able to find it by searching “Love Hair”) you can pull up the past notices and snag your gift. Oh, and before I forget, this style called “QTPIE” can be worn with or without the long strands, and there is a rigged and non-rigged mesh version for easy resizing if needed.

Lucky in Silver

As I mentioned, the second group gift featured in this post is a Lucky Letter board prize for group members only. Right now Apple May Designs has this gorgeous silver bikini/lounge wear/whatever adorable thing as a FREE Lucky Letter board prize for all AMD group members. The Apple May Designs group is just 25 lindens to join at this time. There’s also a second Lucky Letter board with this same gorgeous gift in gold. I’m still stalking that one! This mesh set comes in several sizes, and is every bit as pretty as it looks. Don’t forget, you will need an AMD tag to participate with these group only Lucky Letter boards. Good Luck, and may the letters or numbers be ever in your favor!

Mesh Sizes Included:

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Crochet Bikini

Yellow Bikini
Oh Hello! Welcome back Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here because I’m really excited about sharing with you today. Stick with me and I’ll tell you all about these gorgeous skins, the hairstyle, and this itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow crochet bikini!

Summer is For Skin

Both of the lovely skins are FREE group gifts for the month of May at Deluxe Body Shop. Each skin comes with a classic system layer skin, and a single omega applier that will work with Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads. You’ll find both gift vendors just inside the entrance in front of the circulation desk. You’ll also need to join the Deluxe Body Shop group. There is a one time join fee of 299 linden for the Deluxe Body Shop group. While you’re there picking up  your group gifts, take a minute to click the group only Midnight Mania boards just behind the desk. Also, you’ll see 24 (yep twenty-four) group only Lucky Letter boards in the same location.

Beach Hair

I love the long beachy waves of this hairstyle by Mutiny in Heaven. Everyone can pick up this Mutiny in Heaven hairstyle for FREE exclusively at The Free Dove. The gift comes in the brunette color, and the blonde color shown. Also there are two sizes of each color. If you haven’t visited the hair section of The Free Dove lately, I’d recommend it. There’s no group to join, and you can pick up this recent addition along with several others.

Yellow Crochet Bikini

I knew I wanted to wear a cute bikini for this post, it is early days of summer and I’m longing for a trip to the beach. This applier bikini from Ashmoot is their exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The package includes appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies. There is also a classic system layer top and bottom included. Anyone in the Fab Free group can get this gift at Ashmoot by wearing their Fab Free group tag and clicking the gift vendor.
