No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – 7 Deadly s[K]ins

It’s been a minute since we had a Designer Friday feature post on the blog, so even though it’s late in the day we are getting it done this week! For this post it’s all about skins, 7 Deadly s[K]ins to be exact. 7 Deadly s[K]ins has been an almost constant participant in the Fab Free community, which we of course love. So I am happy to be telling you all about this awesome shop. There are two floors of shopping at the 7 Deadly s[K]ins main store. New releases, gifts, and newer female skins are all on the first floor. The second floor is where you’ll find the male skins, discount skins, and some of the previous group gifts available for sale.

Along with their male and female skins there are lots of extras you can get to further customize your look. There are things such as freckles, makeup, body moles, cleavage options, and more that you can purchase at 7 Deadly s[K]ins. There’s also large number of skin-tones, most of which fall into a light to medium tone range. There are also lots of applier choices, and many of the skins are BOM. Additionally you can purchase shapes at 7 Deadly s[K]ins that are made specifically to suit their skins.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Store Group 

7 Deadly s[K]ins known for frequent and generous gifts for both male and female avatars. The group has a join fee of 295 linden. With the group tag you get exclusive sales, discounts, and gifts. Also, there are Mini Mania boards, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards that require the group tag to participate. Each month 7 Deadly s[K]ins offers a free male and female group gift skin. Currently there are also 2 7 Deadly s[K]ins Anniversary gifts with a full set of free skins in the boxes. You’ll find those gifts inside the entrance on the wall between the two doors. Current male and female group gifts are located behind the information desk.

The group only prize boards and camping chairs at 7 Deadly s[K]ins are mostly on the first floor. There are 3 total camping chairs (2 on the first floor, and 1 on the second) that offer gifts. The group only Mini Mania boards are on the first floor. There are 6 total boards with 5 female gifts, and 1 male. You’ll find Lucky Letter boards on both floors. There are 7 total boards, 2 of which have male prizes, and 5 of them have female prizes.  I also spotted a Lottery Board on the second floor that appeared to contain a 300 linden 7 Deadly s[K]ins gift card.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Fab Free Group Gift

The Fabulously Free in SL group gift at 7 Deadly s[K]ins is a pretty female skin called Mareike. She comes in 7 tones with Omega head/body appliers, and BOM layers. The Fabulously Free in SL group is required, however it is (and always will be) free to join. You’ll find this free gift waiting near the Midnight Madness boards on the first floor at 7 Deadly s[K]ins.

 

Other Gifts and Sales

7 Deadly s[K]ins is participating in the Saturday Sale with a female skin priced at just 70 linden per tone. There was another sales board, however there was not a current offer. Perhaps that’ll be a future offer. Toward the back of the store on the right side there are 2 Midnight Mania boards that are open to everyone, no group required. This area is also where you’ll find several gifts for other groups.

Sitting on shelves on the wall there are vendors with group logos. Each group has their own gift, which you can get by wearing the group tag for that group and clicking the vendor box with the corresponding group logo. I counted 9 total gifts including the gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. There’s also a free Stay at Home Club gift on the first floor that includes the full Akyla skin with Omega head/body appliers, BOM layers, brow shaper, and a shape intended for Genus heads.
