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!

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!

Celestial Empire

Celestial Sea

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend, mine was pretty awesome. As with most shopaholics, my inventory is a hot mess. Yesterday I realized that I had picked up the May group gift at Empire, but never opened it. That happens more often than I would like to admit. I did notice however that the May group gift is still available to all Empire VIP group members, and the shoes are gorgeous so I decided to share them with you today. In fact, they happen to go really well with the fabulous June group gift at Petite Mort, which made my day. I really love this look, and I think you will too.

As with anything from Petite Mort, this FREE group gift romper is drop dead cute. I love everything about it, from the pretty celestial pattern in the fabric to the deep blue color. Not to mention that this is another one of those clothing items that could easily be dressed up or casual. It would look just as amazing with a cute pair of flats as it does with these thigh high-lace-up heels from Empire. To get the romper simply head over to Petite Mort and join the group, then click the gift vendor located near the counter. The Petite Mort group is FREE to join.

I have never had a pair of mesh thigh high shoes fit as well as these ones from Empire do. These laced up heels are the May group gift from Empire, which is still available to all Empire VIP group members. This FREE gift includes a specific fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, TMP, and Venus bodies and feet. Also in the gift is a hud that allows you to color the shoes silver or gold. I kinda want to wear them all the time! The Empire group is currently 499 lindens to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Goodbye to Sandra D.

Sandra

Hello Fab Free! For those celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, I hope you have some lovely weather. One of the great things about Second Life is the rain can’t ruin the party.  Speaking of parties, I feel ready for a retro sock-hop in this fantastically adorable group group gift at Knockers.

The Knockers group is 150 lindens to join, and this fully mesh group gift dress and matching jacket are well worth the effort. This mesh dress can be worn with or without the matching mesh jacket. I think the jacket would be equally cute with jeans, and y0u’ve gotta love the iconic poodle decal on the skirt as well as the back of the jacket. Both items come in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. The dress has appliers for Lolas Tango and Mirage.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mud and Bones

bones & mud

Happy Monday Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Despite it being Monday, I’m excited to be here and even more so to share some great freebies with you. Let’s get to it!

I know you see Pru wear a LOT of hair styles from Little Bones. I’ll be the first to tell you, Little Bones is my go-to shop for hair in Second Life. Not only do I love the styles, I enjoy the color options as well. The hair pictured above is the current Group Gift at Little Bones. The style is named Crimson and the gift includes the “Resort” color change hud which has a variety of fun bright color fades (think pinks, oranges, yellows, and greens). It also includes a hud to change the “scalp” color for a little added detail, or you can simply turn the scalp portion of the hair off so that there’s no visible scalp at all. Another reason I very much enjoy Little Bones is that the VIP group is one of the most generous gift-giving groups I am a member of.  I was in the store today, and I took a count of the VIP gifts still available. There are 14 FREE gifts out at Little Bones, including the current one. That said, there is a one-time fee of 100 lindens to join the group. However that’s less than 10 lindens per hairstyle! Some of the gifts are even Fat Packs that include all the color options. So, I think I’ve made my case, the 100 linden fee is completely worth it.

Next, this pretty skin Pru has on is the May group gift at MUDSkin. The skin comes in a Fat Pack of tones that includes the Native tone shown in the photo above and a wide rage of pale to dark tones. The gift is FREE, and the MUDSkin group is FREE to join. I think these lips are just lovely, and it’s not often I see group gift skins with pretty ginger/brown brows. The brows are tinted just so that I think they would match well with light brunette and darker blonde shades as well. Either way, this beautiful skin is FREE, and well worth the effort of giving it a try. I thought it looked rather good with Pru’s brightly colored hairstyle!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a good week thus far. My week has been fantastic, and just keeps getting better. Needless to say I’m excited, and I’ve got some freebie goodness to share!

I have to say, I am never not impressed by the lovely gifts put out by BYRNE. I love this white and black dress with the dramatic neck-line and lace-like pattern. To me it looks high fashion. The dress also comes in a black version with the design in white. To get this amazing FREE dress, simply join the BYRNE Style group (it’s FREE also) and check past notices.

To go with my fancy new dress, I picked up a couple of the many FREE gifts out at the current round of Chapter Four. This is an anniversary round for the Chapter Four event, so the designers have put out lovely gifts to celebrate. To get the gifts, head on over to the event location and join the FREE Chapter Four group. Then click the little gift box most of the designers have out. Simple!

The first of the gifts are these exaggerated cat-eye sunglasses from ANE. Especially in the summer, I feel about sunglasses the same way I do about shoes, you can’t have too many! Like all the Chapter Four gifts, these are FREE, just wear your Chapter Four tag.

Personally, I am a huge fan of Pink Acid. I love their products. I really love it when I get the chance to snag something beautiful from Pink Acid for FREE! At Chapter Four, you can pick up this delicate crystal ring by Pink Acid for FREE. This ring is exactly the sort of jewelry I’d wear to suit my own personal style. This gift includes the silver version shown, and a matching gold version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
