WellMade Billionaire


WellMade Billionaire

Hey There Fab Free’rs! Did your weekend go by as quickly as mine did? My week seems to be getting away from me as well.  I did however get to do some freebie shopping over the weekend thanks to the gifts at the Paradise Event. This new-to-me event was pointed out to me by this super awesome guy in my life, thanks Blue for the heads up! At the Paradise Event most participating designers have a gift or two at their booth ranging in cost from zero to ten lindens each. No group is required, simply purchase the gift for the set price. I picked up the gift by WellMade along with the gift by Beauty Passions. The Paradise Event gifts aside for a moment, how cool is this black and white limousine?! It’s absolutely free at Billionaire Motors, no group needed.

WellMade Paradise Event Gift – This dress by WellMade is a free gift at the Paradise Event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 8 preset colors, including 3 metallic options. The faux leather-like appearance of the fabric with the lacey texture gave me major ’80s glam rock vibes. I couldn’t help but channel my inner Tawny Kitaen! This free gift comes in several sizes and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (single size), Slink (Single Size)

Manicured

Beauty Passions Paradise Event Gift – Beauty Passions has this pretty mesh manicure out as their Paradise Event gift. I thought the pale pearl color was just right for my ’80s fashionista fantasy! It is just 10 lindens and includes a set of mesh nails for Maitreya hands and one Slink hands. There’s no group needed for this beautiful inexpensive gift.

Billionaire Motors Free Gift – Finally, the Limousine! So I heard through the Fab Free grapevine that Billionaire Motors had a cool free car available with no group needed. Of course, I had to check it out. There is indeed a very posh looking black car freebie at Billionaire Motors. However this limousine really caught my attention. It too is free to everyone, no group required. Not only is this limo beautiful to look at, it’s fully functional. You can drive this baby! It comes with a free Billionaire Motors men’s jacket, and a driving hud. There’s also a touch menu with lots of options. To get your copy head over to Billionaire Motors and look for the “Free Gift” sign, both free cars are waiting in a boxes with big gold bows.

Here are the details!

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!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go AwayRain Rain Go Away…

This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.

Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.

There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.

The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.

Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Come Again Another Day…Come Again Another Day

During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Hair – +Spellbound+ Toothbrush // Natural Selection

Skin – 7 Deadly s[K]ins – Apple June GIFT – FREE Group Gift/Group is 225L to Join 

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Fab Free Designer Friday – 02/03/2017 – ZOZ

ZOZ Main Location
Well Hello again and Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week I’m happy to share with you a little about ZOZ. I’ve always liked that store name, ZOZ. I think it sounds like something mysterious and powerful. For those who are new to Second Life or simply haven’t encountered ZOZ before, it is one of Second Life’s top shops for your manicure and pedicure needs. ZOZ has been part of Second Life for as long as I can recall, which says saying a lot. I’ve been around forever! At the ZOZ main location you’ll find room after room of gorgeous nail appliers for just about every mesh hand out there. ZOZ also makes a set of nails. The ZOZ nails are fun in that they are much longer and shapelier than the nails you can achieve wearing mesh hands only. One of the unique things about shopping at ZOZ is you can purchase individual applier sets, rather than buying big pack of multiple appliers. Most (if not all) of the available appliers will work for both hands and feet.
ZOZ Special Offers
At the ZOZ landing point, you’ll be instantly aware of the carefully cultivated atmosphere. In one word, ZOZ is posh! You’ll also find two awesome deals waiting right at the entrance. To the left you’ll find the most recent Saturday Sale offer, which is still available and will be for several days. This beautiful rose nail polish design is priced at just 75 lindens per applier type. Directly to the right you’ll find the most recent 60L Secret offer from ZOZ. Equally pretty, this nail polish set is just 60 lindens per applier type. Make sure you purchase the correct applier for your mesh hands or for you ZOZ nails. Also at the entrance, you’ll see a big pink sign with hearts. This sign is a big deal in that it announces the major sale going on at ZOZ. From now until February 14th the entire store is 50% off. This is huge! If you’re a long time fan of ZOZ like I am, or you’re new and want to try a few things out, this sale is one you won’t want to miss out on.
ZOZ Events
Finally, at the back of the main room just behind the information desk, you’ll find information about current events and store affiliations. To the left are event posters with information and group joiners. You’ll also find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from ZOZ. This lovely gift has been blogged several times on the Fab Free blog, but was originally shown by Kathryn in her post here. To get this generous FREE gift you’ll of course need to wear your Fab Free group tag. Want to know what’s available at the Events before you teleport over? ZOZ has you covered there, to the right of the “Events” section, you’ll find “Event Items” where there’s a full display of the nail appliers available at each event. You can also get a landmark to each event by clicking the display photo. Needless to say if you have been neglecting your nails or if you’re nail applier addict, ZOZ is the store for you.

A Christmas Ride

Winter Ride

I love all the winter scenery around the grid right now. Everything looks pretty and sparkly covered with snow. It really is kind of magical, especially in a virtual setting. With so many places to explore, I donned some boots, and a warm cozy sweater and headed out for some fun in the winter sun.
Christmas Ride OutfitFor starters when picking my outfit, I had to have this FREE group gift sweater from Hudson’s. It’s a beautiful shade of red, with a frilly lace “undershirt” for some added detailing. The undershirt is not a separate piece, however there are optional add-ons for the sleeves and the hem of the shirt to add some extra frill. There is also a system layer, and an Omega applier for the undershirt strap detail that shows with the off-the-shoulder part of the sweater. Additionally, the sweater comes in standard mesh sizes. The Hudson’s group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss this great gift!

I also picked up these cute wellies from SinfulSky on the Marketplace for just 1 linden! The rubber boots come in 3 colors, all of which have a cute bow in the back. The boots do not require any feet and include an alpha layer if you’re not wearing a mesh body. They are also easily re-sized and positioned. At just 1 linden, you’ll want to add these to your closet for sure!

This pretty shoulder-length hairstyle is a FREE group gift from Sentinus. The style is called Eleanor, and she includes a color change hud with 16 color options. The Sentinus group is also FREE to join at this time, and there are other group gifts available as well. I think my favorite part of this hairstyle is the hairline, gotta love the little details!

There are so many advents going on right now, I know it’s hard to keep up. I know I’ve missed a few days at some of the stores. If you’re a sucker for a cute mani/pedi like I am, you’ll want to make sure you check out the advent gifts at Hello Dave. Each day there is a new gift with a new polish/polishes. The gifts are FREE and the group is FREE to join. Even better, you can pick up the gifts from previous days, so you don’t have to worry about missing one. I put on this red swirly sparkly polish from Day 3. The polishes are really pretty, and well worth the effort considering they are FREE, so make your way to Hello Dave and don’t forget to wear your Hello Dave group tag.

Christmas Ride Poses Rather than walk in a Winter Wonderland, why not go for a ride? I found this too cute for words bicycle prop from What Next on the Marketplace. This “Christmastime” bike is highly detailed and has 3 static poses for fun festive photos. The bike is an absolute steal at just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Glam-orous Gifts!

Glam Affair Holiday

 

I’ll just start with the fact that I cannot say enough good things about the latest group gifts from Glam Affair, Earthstones, and ZOZ.

Recently Glam Affair put out this gorgeous skin in two tones for free to all group members. I think I’m a little bit in love! I’m wearing the “Asia” tone, which is a tiny bit darker than the other tone included, both are lovely. In addition to Glam Affair‘s gift, on my pilgrimage of gift-getting, I picked up a beautiful bracelet from Earthstones.

I’ll be the first to admit I often neglect to include jewelry in my wardrobe, not because I don’t like it, but because I’m forgetful! The second I saw this candy cane bracelet from Earthstones, I had to have it. It’s dainty, and I really like the iridescent textures. Part of me wants to wear it with everything, matching or not!

Feeling pretty in my new skin, and my shiny new bangle, this beautiful holiday themed manicure from ZOZ is the proverbial icing on the cake. I really like this more delicate take on a holiday manicure, with the white reindeer silhouette and the classic french tips. This FREE gift is the type of manicure you could wear all winter and not just during the holidays. Also, the ZOZ Group is FREE to join until January 1! Please note that the manicure does require ZOZ mesh nails, though it does include a hud for Slink toenails.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
