Wishing for Winter

Wishing for Winter

It’s the time of year in my world physical and virtual that I start to wish for snow. Perhaps because I almost never get to experience temperatures cold enough for snow where I live, I find that I long for that story-book white snowy winter. I am also so ready to break out the winter wardrobe. Thank goodness Second Life has me covered, here I get my snow, and a pretty stellar closet full of winter clothing. Speaking of clothing, this outfit is the most recent group gift at Vooh.

Vooh

There are actually several group gifts available at Vooh, Group Gift 76 is the most recent. I really like the look of this all-in-one outfit. The jacket, sweater dress, and undershirt are all one piece. I love that it makes me appear as though my hands are tucked warm into my pockets. Also, the outfit includes matching boots, and a beret (not worn). The jacket/sweater dress combo has a color change hud with several solid color options for the main part of the jacket, the dress, the undershirt, as well as the metal parts of the jacket. Additionally the hud will allow you to tint each part, and adjust things like glow and materials. The boots and beret have their own similar customization huds with matching color choices. The required Vooh store group has a join fee of 50 linden, which if you ask me is well worth it.

Jacket/Sweater Dress Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer
Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza (Freya, Isis/Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Fitted Mesh, TMP

Your Friendly Neighborhood Vampire

Friendly Neighborhood Monster

“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.”

– Angelina Jolie

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

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.

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!

A Waltz into Darkness


A Waltz into Darkness

Oh hi there Fab Free’rs! I’ve got some awesome group gifts to share with you. In my last post I celebrated the sweeter side of all the love and mush that comes along with Valentine’s Day. For this post I am feelin’ a little sultry, though I think that goes without saying. I picked up the recent group gift at Speakeasy along with the latest group gift at Dead Dollz. I hope you love them as much as I do.

The Dead Dollz Group Gift – If you’d asked me a week ago if I ever saw myself wearing pasties of any kind I would have said probably not. Just goes to show you never know! These pasties with the little hearts are just too pretty. There is of course a matching lower part, so I’ve added a copy of the vendor ad so you can see the gift in full. This gift is fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only. Included with this Dead Dollz group gift is a color change hud that lets you choose different preset colors for the hearts and the pasties. You can also turn the pastie portion invisible so that only the hearts show. To get your copy you’ll need the Dead Dollz group tag. There is a one time join fee for the Dead Dollz group of 250 linden.

The Speakeasy Group Gift – I love a good full sleeve tattoo. This new group gift at Speakeasy is just that, a good full sleeve that covers from the shoulder to the back of the hand on both arms. This group gift from Speakeasy comes in an Omega applier only. To get your copy you’ll need to join the Speakeasy group. There is a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there are several group gifts currently available.

Here are the details!

Making it Happen

Making it Happen

I’m going to make the onesie as clothing thing happen.  I will, you’ll see.  Come on, think of the positives:  You’ll be comfy all day, people will compliment you on your style, and ain’t nobody else gonna be dressed like you!  Trust me, it’s going to happen!

My Lucky Onesie

I got my onesie (which by the way, if you click on it, you can take bits off one by one exposing different parts of your body…cough cough) at Vanilla Bae.  They’ve got five lucky boards out with a plethora of different looks for you.  You can join the group for 100L and pick up all five prizes (with a bit of patience) and also there are two group gifts to be had at the moment!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

My Empire

I’ve been a group member at Empire for a while – it’s one of those groups you join and just don’t leave because they come out with some really fab gifts semi-regularly (they aim for one every second month).  Sure, it’s 500L to join, but if you hurry over there you can grab all the gifts from 2017 as well as the January and March gifts (hurry though, apparently last year’s are coming down soon).  It’s a whole lotta swag.  This month’s gift are the Hazel shoes that come in a full fatpack of colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Now, me and my comfy onesie are making fashion magic happen.  Excuse us. 😉

In My Birthday Suit

In My Birthday Suit

It’s high time to head to the beach, I think.  Ok, it may only be March, and I believe snow is looming in many parts of the world, so quite frankly we need to soak up the rays right now, even if they are only in SL.  I found a really cute bathing suit at Lana that may just tickle your fancy!

Vitamin Sea

The salt water lapping at my legs is all I need to feel at peace today, though this bathing suit by Lana is seriously giving me those mid 90’s vibes that bring me back to a fun time and place in my life!  I mean, how can you say no to a hot pink suit with “Birthday Suit” printed across it?   So hot.  It comes with an HUD to um…. reveal some more of your upper body (cough, cough), you can also change the colour to a dizzying array of awesomeness.  It fits my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  You can grab this fun bathing suit by joining the Lana group for 100L (there are other gifts up on the wall!).

To top off my look, I have these free catty ears by Enchante which I grabbed at the Cosmopolitan event by joining their group for free.  There is another gift there too – both are hiding by the front entrance to the event! Meow!

Right, it may ruin my hair, but I’m diving in!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/26/2018 – Circa Living

Circa Living Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It seems I’d been “burning the midnight oil” where the Fab Free Designer Friday post is concerned. I really wanted to get this post out last night, but it just didn’t happen that way. My apologies for the lateness, however, I think browsing a shop like Circa Living might be a great way to spend a bit of your Saturday!

Circa Living is a shop that specializes in just about all things home related. Not to mention they have been part of Second Life almost since the beginning with 10 plus years of creating. At Circa Living you’ll find everything for inside the home from furniture to decor, and some outdoor furniture and landscaping as well. Not only can you find items for in the home and outside the home, you’ll find some houses too. One of the group gifts at Circa Living is  a skybox. I’m not sure if there is a specific style that could be attributed to Circa Living other than perhaps modern. There is such a wide range of fun and functional items to be had. There is certain to be something for everyone. There’s even a large teleporter at the entrance to Circa Living to help you get around. The same teleporter can be found as you enter the store, in the center of the circulation desk.
Circa Gifts
The Circa Living entrance leads you through a short hallway that also has info about events Circa Living is participating in on the walls. The hall leads you to the circulation desk at Circa Living, where you’ll be greeted by another teleporter, and quite a few group gifts. One such gift is the Halloween themed wreath decor which is FREE for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag! The Circa Living group has a join fee of 500 linden. Once you join the Circa Living  group you’ll have instant access to all the currently available. So whether you’re looking to spruce up your space, or you’re in the market for a new place all together, Circa Living has you covered!

Speakeasy Breakfast Combo

Speakeasy Breakfast
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way through the week! I’m happy to be here with you I’ve got a couple of mid-week finds to share. I’m also grateful for a little down time during this unusually hectic week. The leg tattoos Pru’s showing, and the strappy crop top are both group gifts currently available.

Speakeasy

Speakeasy has this beautiful leg tattoo as their January group gift. The tattoo comes in 3 shades (faded, worn, fresh), in a couple of appliers. I love getting new tattoos in SL almost as much as I do in RL. Not to mention Second Life tattoos are painless and easily changed, and easily removed! To get your copy of this highly detailed tattoo from Speakeasy, you’ll need to first join the Speakeasy group. There is a one time join fee of 100 linden to join the group. Also, there are past group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, TMP

A Breakfast Combo

Next up, this cute little cropped top is a current group gift at a new-to-me shop called “A Breakfast Combo.” This cute little top is one of a few group gifts currently sitting on the ABC (A Breakfast Combo) circulation desk. Just look for the line of black gift bags, it’s the first one on the left. The gift includes the “Cake” top in black, blue, creme (shown), pink, peach, red, white, teal, purple, pink, navy, mustard, and grey. No hud needed, so no scripts, and each color comes in a few sizes. I think having no scripts and several color options make this a perfect wardrobe staple. The A Breakfast Combo group is 100 linden to join. To get your gifts just wear the group tag and click the black gift bags on the circulation desk.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!
