Hey fab gang!

The Shop & Hop Valentine edition is going strong, as you know from Aline’s amazing post.  There is so much wonderful-ness there we Fab Free Sisters hardly know what to choose (which means you should really REALLY check it out!).  There are gifts galore and the sales!  I can’t even begin to list all the amazing deals you can grab there, and the designers have gone above and beyond!  It runs until February 17.

Now speaking of gifts, I scooped up this entire outfit at Masoom.  The dress is a Shop & Hop gift (it’s freeno group required, just show up!) and the matching gloves are a group gift (Free to join!).  I love the details and I am mad crazy insane over the gloves!

The gloves fit:

Sunset Selfies

Sunset SelfiesHello again lovely fabbies!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, where ever you may be!  I’m dreaming of warmer days here, so I took a virtual trip to a place in the grid that I love… Maui!  And because I got lucky before I left, I had this gorgeous ensemble to wear.  Now I don’t mean getting lucky in the way you are thinking (tsk tsk!), I’m talking about popping into Kamiri and hitting up her lucky chairs, which is where I grabbed my Maui outfit!  Some of the chairs you don’t need a group, but some you do, but that’s no biggie!  Cause her group is free to join!  She also has group gifts posted near the chairs so if you do join the group, you can scoop those babies up as well!

This dress comes in:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

It also has a HUD with two colored textures to choose from.

You can also get this hair for free from Sintiklia.  You don’t need a group just pop by the store and click the vendor.  She has a crazy amount of group gifts too and again, this group is free to join!  You can’t beat that with a stick!  😀

Until next time gang, stay toasty!

Making it Shine

Making it Shine
Some of the things I love the most are sparkly – there’s something ever so wonderful about glitter and shine.  Other times, all I want is a bit of rugged with straps and buckles.  Today’s mood comes to you courtesy of not being able to make up my mind: Straps? Buckles? Purple? Shine? Ahhhh… why not have it all?

Uber Good

Grixdale have put out another free wearable demo of their latest release over at this month’s round of Uber.  The Calliope dress comes sized for Maitreya bodies and is in this lovely purple hue with the darker geometric triangles that give it a bit of a shiny texture.  No need to join a group here, just click on the free demo and it’s yours!  This round of Uber is running until January 22nd!

Sparkle, sparkle!

Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

Looking for fun and feeling groovy

Looking for fun and feeling groovy

Heyya FabFolks! I think I might have gotten caught up in this Hippy, peace, Love and Rock and Roll vibe I started yesterday with that sweet 1960’s dress. But hey… why not? We all certainly need some good vibes right about now!

Peace, Love and Daisies

So, of course, I jumped on the Good Vibes Hunt! Bunny already showed you a couple of the cool things you can pick up at the Hunt, here and here.  Even if I didn’t do some of the Hunt myself, I had to go grab those super cute jeans…  Anyway, I found these two pieces from No Cabide. The “Good Vibes” dress ( which I decided to wear as a tunic) and jacket are both 25L for the Hunt but 50L for such cute high quality items is no strain on the pocket book IMO.  Each piece comes with a HUD for a choice of six different colors and textures. But I just had to pick the 60s Van. My real life Hubby is crazy about antique VWs and was driving that same type of VW Van when we met way back when.

The Good Vibes Hunt runs until August 14th so hurry to the Hunt SIM and get your vibe on!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Who I am Today

Who I Am Today

The power of transformation is one that cannot be overstated.  One of the main things I love about Second Life, (and fashion in general…) is that one day you can be a rock & roll queen, and the next you can be a soft flower.  Sometimes these transformations take place in the blink of an eye, and you can be several people all in the course of one day!  SL does allow us to have multiple personalities, doesn’t it?

Floating

My lovely bodysuit and socks come courtesy of Maai.  They have their latest group gift out for members of their free to join group, and it had me feeling my rose petal fantasy!  Nothing could be easier than grabbing this gift, just join the free group and click on the vendor in the entrance hall!  Now twirl!

Late Night Citrus

Late Night Citrus

When you need a late-night pick me up, there’s nothing like a conveniently placed, if not slightly creepy, vending machine area!  I swear, these are the places I only visit in SL!  Refreshing citrus beverage, here I come!

Deals Galore!

The people who organize 35L sales are back with an event called the Hot Summer Sales Event!  Not only will you find loads of awesome deals, but also each display also has a gift for members of the free to join group.  There are some really fun outfits to put together at this event, so do make sure you visit.  I grabbed this dress by NunaLuna, which is pretty fun and also slightly scandalous in the back, as well as this hot pink lipstick by J!NX that comes with appliers for Genus, an Omega Applier as well as BOM layers.  Nice!

Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

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

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

Hunt Hint: Careful, he bites!

    • Male Swimsuit Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh (s-L)
    • Female Swimsuit Sizes Included: Voluptuous, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh

SamPoses

This sweet beachy pose complete with seashell prop is a free group gift at La Vie en Pose by SamPoses. The gift includes the pose in a stand which gives you the ability to adjust the pose the same way you would in furniture. The pose is called Sea Sound and you can get your copy by heading over to the La Vie en Pose event and stopping by the SamPoses booth. You’ll need to join the La Vie en Pose event group as well. It is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag.

Play the Game

Play the Game
My fave game to play at the beach is “sit there and look pretty”.  I’m pretty good at that game in SL, not to toot my own horn or anything.  All the sports and splashing are just not on the menu for me (at least not in today’s mood), because I’m here to soak up the rays and let others soak up my beauty!

Goodness Gracious

There’s another new group gift for you over at Miss Chelsea!  They’ve been spoiling us mere avatars recently with all the goodies, and this latest one is pretty darn awesome.  The Rena bikini is super beautiful with 16 different colour and texture options in the HUD.  To get it, and all the other awesome gifts from Miss Chelsea, just join the group for 100L and take a peek at all the awesome gifts on the counter.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

What do you like to do at the beach for fun?
