After Work Gift Run

ffkartelsemller 

I just got in from a long day at work and had to figure my way home through snow up to my waist. I thought it would be a good day to create something nice and sunny and go for a shirtless run through the city to work up a sweat. Also to show everyone out there my first FabFree post. As the newest member of the team I have to be on my A-game and keep up with all of the amazing bloggers on this site.

First off, Kartel is currently featuring this amazing Fat Pack of shorts via a gift from joining the L’Homme Magazine group which can lead you to many other free gifts. . These Mechanical shorts come with Multiple colors for the shorts themselves as well as the strap material. They come in sizes for Geralt, Gianni, Jake and Legacy. You can pick them up as well as join the L’Homme group at the following location.

Next are these awesome socks and shoes by Semller. The basic sock pack is free and comes fit for Males in Jake, Gianni and Legacy as well as multiple female fits. The great thing about these socks is that they come with a style and color Hud in which you can change the socks from slouchy or short to calf high as well as the color. Certain areas of the socks can be alpha’d to fit many different shoe brands. This brings me to shoes. This is a fat pack of shoes that you can get by joining the group for only 30L. These shoes come in both Male and Female sizes just as the socks above. The best part is they are completely customizable with a color and glow Hud to suit your tastes for the moment. You can pick up both the Socks and the Shoes at the Semller & Hiemal Main Stores.

Shorts Sizes Included

  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Legacy

Socks and Shoes Sizes Included

  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Legacy
  • (Female Sizes included also)

Thanks everyone and I hope you enjoy my first post with more to come.

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Cuteness

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Valentine’s is the perfect season for looking cute, which we all do. It’s time to get cute ladies, and today I’ll show you how to achieve this great look.

Another 500 L Giftcard!

I am unloading the news of gift credits this week, and Trend has a 500L Credit at their store out for group members. As far as I am aware, this offer ends and the credit expires on the 14th so go quickly. You must join their group to get in on this offer and the group costs 150L to join currently. I purchased the replay eyeshadow and queen eyelashes with the gift. I also grabbed all their group gifts at the back of the store, and a lipstick pack which is a free Second Life Frees & Offer (SLFO) group gift.

The Cuteness

The rest of my cute outfit is made up of freebies and cheapies I’ve been collecting all over the grid. Here are the details of my outfit:

  • The hair is another group gift in the no.match group. This is the “No Addiction” hair, and it is located at the top of the building (cam up to the roof to grab it). The no.match group costs 50 L to join.
  • The dress is a 10 L special by Ari-Pari at the Love Hurts Hunt. You can grab a total of 5 dresses at the hunt for 10 L each (see hunt key below). There are lots of designers offering cheap gifts at this event, and you can find more information about the hunt here.
  • The sparkly nails are a group gift at Ari-Pari, which costs 25 L to Join. The nails come in 6 colour options, and they are super cute.
  • These sandals, which I LOVE, are a free gift from Mangula at the Shop & Hop. They have a free 300 L credit there as well, so grab that reward while you’re there (it expires on Febuary 20th).
  • The pose I am using is also a free group gift at Mirinae. They have a bunch of free group gifts and they are well worth checking out if you are in need of new poses like I always am!

Dreaming of More Christmas on Boxing Day

una_159 (2)
Hey, Fab Free! Are you still feeling Christmassy? I know I am, and I have more Christmas outfits than I know what to do
with. I will be showing you a lovely free Christmas dress, as well as a jewelry set you can pick up for only 1 Linden.

Dreaming of a white Christmas…

Even if you didn’t get the white Christmas you were dreaming of, Dreams has a wonderful Christmas dress out for you all. The Dreams VIP group is currently free to join. There are 2 free dresses out for women and a free Christmas sweater for men! Just look for the Christmas tree in the store and you will find the gifts there. Time to deck the halls on boxing day with these sweet finds! Dreams is normally a paid group, so jump in this group and grab all the gifts in the gift room for free!

The jewels…

This lovely jewelry set I have on is for M&M Style. I got it at the front of the store and it is part of the Fleur gift package. To get the gift, I needed to join the M&M Style group which only costs 1 Linden to join. Like many of M&M Style‘s outfits, it comes with shoes, an outfit (in this case, a jumpsuit), and jewelry. It is a full set and one of the reasons I love this designer’s clothes is because you get so many things wrapped in one box that match so well together. I posted a picture of the full outfit below so you can see what the jumpsuit and shoes look like in the package! You will also be able to grab a few more gifts by joining the group. There are lucky letter boards upstairs if you need even more freebies.

Have a great Boxing Day, Fab Free!

All I want for Christmas is… some free mesh bodies and heads!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Advent is my favourite time of the year in Second Life. In fact, I go a bit crazy with it! This year has been no letdown, and the amazing list compiled at Fab Free this year was incredible! Time to give our amazing blog organizer Aline a round of applause. *claps*. Make sure you check out those calendars and see if any of the past gifts are available before the 24th of December. The Fab Free December advent list is here.

Advent Calendar at Altamura

Today I will be sharing the incredible advent gifts by Altamura this year. The Altamura group is currently free to join for a limited time, which will give you access to their 12 days of Christmas gifts, sitting under the tree at the store, and two free mesh avatars. Joining the group will also give you access to group gifts that are located around the store (you have to search for them in each section of the store), and there is also a free male mesh head at the back of the store which is a current group gift.

Altamura is known for gifting free, full avatars that include a mesh body and head that are (usually) joined together. This advent, they are gifting two full mesh body and head combos for men and women. These bodies are fully BOM and bento and they can be used out of the box with few limitations. My friend Remus and I are showing off the full avatars above. They are beautiful! This is perfect if you need a new avatar or look for free. In each box, a full mesh head and body are included. The head and body are one piece so you cannot wear another head or body with each piece. Altamura bodies fit Altamura clothes, and you can often get the female avatar to fit other brands like Maitreya or Slink with the aid of alphas. I have heard that the male body fits Adam sized clothing nicely, but I have not tested that out. You will need to use alphas (see below) to wear non-Altamura clothes with these bodies. Altamura has a list of all the companies that make Altamura-sized clothing which is handy if you need help finding clothing for your new body.

One thing that’s important to know about these gift bodies is that they are fully BOM and because of this, they do not include a body hud. So, to add makeups, skins, and tattoos you must use BOM products. You can even use BOM eyes and nails. Any system eyes or nails will work with these bodies. As there is no body hud, you must use add alphas manually to your outfits. In order to alpha out sections of the body,  you will need a set of alphas (like the ones that are used when you have a classic avatar). I found two stores that have a good set of alphas out for free with no group join required:

  1. The first free alpha sets kit is at Little Black Dress. Just click the bag on the ground and the alphas are yours.
  2. Slink also has a set of free alphas out at their main store. Click the board that says “extra alpha layers”.

For the Ladies…

The free female body on offer is called “Movin’ On” and she is gorgeous. The ad below pictures what her head looks like up close. A truly beautiful avatar.

MOVINGon

In addition to giving out these wonderful bodies, there are more gifts under the Christmas tree at Altamura. The red BOM shirt I am wearing underneath my sweater and the sparkly heels are two of those free gifts. The heels are fitted for Altamura, Maitreya, and Slink bodies.

Goodies for the Guys!

I pulled in my friend Remus for the post today. Remus is sporting the Take My Way male avatar, which is also free. He is wearing 3 other free advent gifts from Altamura’s calendar, including the sweater and the scarf. The sweater is sized for Altamura bodies only and the scarf will fit any avatar. The jeans he is wearing are BOM/system pants which can be found for free in everyone’s library. Details are listed in the credits below.

TAKE MY WAY GIFT

Another awesome freebie that’s out for the guys at Altamura right now is the Akakor Mesh head. I am not sure how long this head will be available for free, so I wanted to mention it for all the guys out there. This head is BOM and Omega compatible and it can be worn with any other mesh body! Normally, Altamura heads go for 3-4, 000 L so this is a great deal! Snatch it up which you can, boys!

Free Unisex Hair!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

The last thing I wanted to mention is the gifts at the Firestorm Major Event. Remus is wearing the free unisex Jaime hairstyle by Firelight which is currently free to get at the event. This hair can be worn on a male or female avatar and it is completely free, no group join required. This freebie is out for a limited time, and there is also a free arctic ferret, and a free black panther you can grab at the event. I can not find when this event ends, but it will be very soon because this is a holiday-themed event. Go while you still can to get the gifts there.

I wanted to give special thanks to Orion Swansong and Ryan Schultz for helping me prepare for this post! These bodies were new to me and they helped me out greatly. You can read Ryan Schultz’s review of the Altamura advent gift bodies here.

Go snatch all these great gifts up before it’s too late!

FabFree Post: lost in the game

Oops, I did it again!

The vibe was totally a Brit feel and I couldn’t help but use it. I know and I’m sorry for it, well no… I’m not really THAT sorry ^^ by now you should all know me a little better and know when I get the chance to use pop culture references I will with no shame! I do hope you enjoy reading my attempt at the punny stuff and things. *yet another* ^^ ok ok now to get to the grit of the post, what you are all here for…. *Drum roll please*

*Candy Kitten*has these two cute hightop shoes out for their Group Members for free! The group does cost L$400 to join but as I’ve said before, “they rotate their gifts so often” so for me it was well worth the price. These shoes come in two color options Pastel (pictured here) and Pastel Lilac. I opted for a bit more of the same color to match the dress I snagged from their luck letter boards.

  • Freya

FabFree Post: Girls Don't Like Boys

Girls like Cars and Money

Yes, I indeed brought it back to 2002! When Good Charlotte sang those magical words I was just like every other fangirl out there drooling over the band members, dreamy bad boy looks, and their catchy pop-rock lyrics. I remember listening and memorizing all the words as a 20-year-old living in Vegas and loving the dry desert air. Before I jump into a timewarp machine and go back to revisit my youth I’m going to jump in this sexy beast of a car and take it for a test run, so I’ll leave you with all the details ❤ Happy Shopping!

Asty Custom Auto has this pretty rad car on the marketplace for free! All those car-loving women out there should go grab their own! It’s driveable and you can also leave it out as decoration, or to just show it off to your friends. Coming with four color options and a few instructions for our first-time drivers out there.

Masenka has this very hot outfit on the shop’s marketplace for L$1. I know! We all love our Dollarbies, well I know I do. This one is perfection dripping in red leather! Sadly for most out there, it only is available for Maitreya, I know, but for those who have it, should really go and click to snag this skirt and top. I was playing around with different clothing options I have and the red matches quite of few “popular” shop item palettes.

While floating around the Marketplace I happened to trip over these heels from Legendaire for L$49 you get 20 color options to choose from. The very simple heel can go with almost every outfit you have going on and is a great addition to your shopping cart!

Heels Fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
