Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

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

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

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

Hair – TRUTH / Elie – FREE VIP Group Gift/Group is 350L to Join

Far Far Away

Far Far Away_001

Addicted

It’s safe to say I’m addicted… to the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I visited Stix this time and came away with a beautiful fantasy skin called Yuki Addicted for just 5L. It includes system layers plus…

Appliers for:

  • Omega for Catwa & Body
  • Omega for LAQ/Logo & Body
  • Omega for LeLutka & Body
  • Makeup Only applier

You might remember that Pru showcased the beautiful Yuki as Syx skin here which is the current group gift at Stix. This Yuki Addicted addition of the skin is another fantasy version which is just as beautiful and is in pink shades with pink eyebrows, pink cheeks and pink lipstick. I couldn’t resist it! I think it would be fun for everyday, and it is definitely perfect for roleplay!

Far Far Away

I went fishing… far far away. Okay. So I just went to Sn@tch. There is about a week left to pick up the current fishing prize before it is changed out next Wednesday. Currently is is a lovely little outfit called “Holiday in the Sun”.

You get the full kit and caboodle with jewelry, make up, shoes, tops, omega applier pants and so on. The mesh shirts come in the following colors: Pink (shown), Beige, Blue, Peach, Seafoam, White, and Violet. You’ll also get a texture change hud for the pants and the pants come in: Pink (shown), white, lavender, sky, seafoam, and peach.

Sizes available for the shirt:

  • Standard sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Bigfoot by Day and Night!

Bigfoot shirt

I’m a big fan of fun graphic t-shirts. I’m also one of those Bigfoot skeptics. I mean how is Bigfoot really real? Everyone is always looking for Bigfoot… but how often do they ask the *real* question? Hmm? Hmm?

So when I went to JellyRoll, a fun and quirky little shop I might add, I fell in love with their current group gift!

Bigfoot by night!

Who goes creeping through the forest at night? Bigfoot of course! And now you have the lingerie to prove it! Not only does JellyRoll have out the free group gift Tee pictured at the top of my post, but they also have out the free group gift lingerie picture above! Two gifts for one free group tag!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Lavender Key of Time

Lucky Lavender
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Lucky Lavender

This gift at Apple May Designs is extra awesome because you don’t have to join the group to get it. Non group members can pick up this adorable polka-dotted two piece Shae set in either pink or lavender for just 49 lindens per color. If you are already an Apple May Designs group member, or you wanna join (there is a one time fee of 25 lindens) you can get one or both of the Shae sets for FREE by participating in the group only Lucky Letter boards. There is also at least 1 previous group gift still available. Even though you can’t see it in this photo, there’s an enormous bow in the back that just adds to the charm of this set. It’s like retro lingerie meets Disney princess and I love it!

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

Tattoo Time

Up next, how pretty is this very feminine under-bust tattoo by Moon Tattoo?! I love all the delicate lines. You can pick up this tattoo for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace.

Gorgeous in Gingham

Gorgeous in Gingham

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to showcase a Vintage Gacha Fair gift today. When we arrived, we were quite pleasantly surprised to discover that a number of talented designers are featuring free gifts at their booths at the fair.  My top today is courtesy of Belle Epoque.  Featuring a vintage pink gingham fabric, trimmed with lace edging, this tank-style cropped top is a summer time classic.  I chose to pair it with denim shorts, but the generous designer is also offering coordinating pink shorts as a gift for shoppers at the fair.  The delicate shade of pink is soft and feminine, ideal for this vintage shirt.  It comes in one mesh version, which fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  The Vintage Gacha Fair runs until August 13th, so you have plenty of time to mosey on over to the Path of Destiny sim to scoop up some free goodies for yourself.    Most of the stalls have white boxes set out, which contain a free present for you.  It’s well worth the visit!
