Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

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

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Bein’ a Little Bit Extra, Poolside


Bein' Extra at the Pool

Hi Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in need of a pool day for weeks. Second Life to the rescue! Of course, no pool day of mine would be complete without my sweetheart. He’s the best, and he still think’s I’m pretty cute even when I’m bein’ a little extra at the pool! haha We both managed to find some great sales, and a few summer freebies to share with you as well. Keep reading for all the details.

Playfulness aside, this sweet poolside pose is part of a current sale happening at Ardent Poses. The sale ends in just a few days on April 15th, and all the sale items including couples poses, and individual pose packs are marked just 65 linden. You don’t need to wear a specific group tag, just head over to Ardent Poses and shop these fabulous bargains!

Most of the sale items are priced at 75 linden. You’ll find a little bit of everything including lingerie, swimwear, and dresses.

Tattooed Hipster


Tattooed Hipster

Oh Hi There Fab Free! First, thanks as always for being here, second is everyone having a fabulous weekend? I sure hope so. Mine hasn’t been too bad so far, though that darn real life has been getting in the way a bit more than usual. haha Ah well, that’s the way it goes sometimes. Still, I’ve been able to sneak away and enjoy some fantastic new freebies and cheapies. Just a day or two ago I picked up a few gifts from The Hipster Fair, and Love pointed out this gorgeous freebie tattoo at Mister Razzor. Keep reading for all the “whats” and “wheres”.

The Outfit – The cropped top and shorts set Pru has on is a dollarbie gift by Enigma Apparel at their Hipster Fair shop. I love it when I find loungewear that is both comfortable looking and a little bit sexy. The white top is quite sheer, so you may or may not want to wear something under it. The dusty pink shorts however are completely opaque, so no worries there. This cute dollarbie set comes in several sizes. Also, if you for some reason cannot make it to The Hipster Fair, you can pick this set up for a slightly higher price of 10 linden on the Marketplace.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Brow Tattoo – I know it’s not as easy to see in this photo, but the bold tattoo over Pru’s brow reads “Hipster” in a handwriting-like cursive font. I thought it was cute, and the price is even cuter at 0 linden. That’s right, this little Omega applier tattoo by Rin is completely free. You can pick your copy up at Rin’s Hipster Fair shop.

The Full Body Tattoo – I’m a total fan of Frida Kahlo so when Love mentioned a free “Frida” tattoo out at Mister Razzor, I was on it! Not only is this full body applier tattoo free, there’s no group required. Simply pay the vendor 0 linden and this gorgeous tattoo is yours. It comes in omega appliers, and can be split up to be worn just the lower body portion of the tattoo, just the upper body portion, or both for the full effect. Each one has 3 different opacity levels as well. Again, no group needed, so don’t miss out on this fabulous free find.

((Mister Razzor)) Frida Tattoo

Hair – Doe: Londra (twotone) – Candy RARE
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Litzi
Brow Tattoo – Rin – Hipster Face Tattoo – Free/0L @The Hipster Fair

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Feels Like Summertime


I have no idea what to call this.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Saturday. In my post today I want to share with you the March group gift at PumeC and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. The combination of the two really made me daydream about warmer weather. I hope you like them both as much as I do.

The Skin – The March group gift at PumeC is a full skin with Genus head and body appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega  in all skin tones. This gorgeous gift also includes body only base skins in each tone, a default shape, and brow shaper. For me the best part o Free f this skin is the summery freckles across the forehead, cheeks, and nose. The PumeC group has a one-time join fee of 399 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can peep the six skin tones and get a better look at those lovely freckles.
March group gift #1

The Top – This low-cut, draped halter style top is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. It’s the perfect warm weather top. Included with this fitted mesh top is a color change hud with 12 solid color options to choose from. There’s also an alpha layer so the top can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars as well. To get your copy, head to the group gift area of the Posh Tale store and click the gift vendor. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag!

The Oracle


The Oracle

Hello Fab Free! I’m so glad you’re here. This look I came up with for Pru reminded me of an Oracle like the ones in stories about ancient Rome. Maybe it’s the fiery eyes, or the detailed pendant. Both items are free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. I used several gifts from the Summoning Spring Fair to create this unique look. I hope you enjoy them.

The Hair – As I mentioned there are lots of free gifts to be had at the Summoning Spring Fair. CHARME happens to have 2 gifts. This swing-bob style hair is their free gift, and if you pick up both of the CHARME gifts you’ll get the hairstyle with 4 total color change huds. This free hairstyle also has a unique feature that lets your color/texture the top strands of the hair separately from the rest to give the style a lot of dimension and tons of color combinations.

The Tattoo – This mandala-like forehead tattoo is the Summoning Spring Fair gift from Fallen Gods. It comes in classic system layers along with an Omega applier. That means this freebie is suitable for mesh (Omega compatible) avatars and classic non mesh avatars. Not to mention with all the color choices, you could wear it with anything!

The Eyes – I think these intense eyes by Cubic Cherry might be my favorite of the free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. They come in several vibrant colors. This git set includes a pair of mesh eyes, a matching alpha layer, an optional shadow add-on for extra detail, a texture change hud, and an Omega applier hud for Omega compatible eyes.

The Necklace – Finally, this beautiful necklace is by On a Lark, and is also a free gift at the Summoning Spring Fair. I would consider this item to be unisex. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from several preset options for the shiny stone, and 3 metal choices for the chain and setting.

Here are the details!

OMG I’m Cureless!


Oh My Gah

Hey hey hello Fab Free’rs! I can’t believe this week is already nearing to an end. I seem to be always in some disbelief when it comes to the passing of time however, so it’s probably just me! lol Speaking of passing time, one of my favorite ways to do so is (you guessed it) hunting for fabulous freebies! For this post I picked up the recent group gift set of eyes at Cureless, and an adorable free manicure by Tamagosenbei.

The eyes – Once again Cureless has you covered if you’re in need of some gorgeous eyes with an otherworldly appeal. The Lethe eye set is a recent group gift at Cureless. In this gift you’ll get a set of mesh eyes, and an applier. The applier works with the mesh eyes, as well as Catwa eyes or Omega compatible eyes. There are several color options to choose from, and with the included mesh eyes or Catwa eyes you can change the color of each eye separately. To get your copy you’ll need the Cureless group tag. The group has a one time join fee of 99 linen, however there are several group gifts currently available.

The manicure – This cute heart shaped manicure is by Tomagosenbei. They are free with no group tag needed. You’ll find them for sale in the doorway of the Tamagosenbei store that just so happens to be in the same shopping area as Cureless. Just pay the box zero linden and your nails will be sent to you. This pretty little freebie is fit for Maitreya hands only.
