Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

  • Vista Bento Hands
  • Maitreya Lara Bento Hands

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bad Romance at TCF

Bad Romance
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been such a long week, I’ll be so glad for the weekend. Weekend yearnings aside, I promised more of The Chapter Four Anniversary gifts, and I’m here to deliver. As I mentioned in my previous post, there is a 50L join fee for The Chapter Four group, which is a bit of a bummer, but I believe it’s worth it for these fantastic gifts.

Pr!tty Awesome Gift

Speaking of, this cute side-swept hairstyle is The Chapter Four Anniversary gift from pr!tty. This is one of those hugely generous gifts. Not only is the style a full fat-pack of colors, there are 3 color styles, rootless, medium roots, and heavy roots. There’s also a lower front version of the style. This FREE gift comes with the headband shown, and two additional headbands as well.

A Little Meow Meow

I really love the delicate detail of the two necklace combo that is the Supernatural TCF Anniversary gift. These adorable necklaces can be worn separately as well as together. Also, there is a hud included that will allow you to resize them for easy fitting.
Bad Romance 2

Going GaGa

I will tell you that I really don’t believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. However, I understand the concept, and Lady Gaga is a “guilty pleasure” of mine. That said, when I saw that the TCF Anniversary gift by Kraftwork was this sign that reads “bad romance”… yeah love it! If you’re not sure about the connection with Lady Gaga, it’s the title to one of her songs. The sign can be resized manually and has a faint glow.

White Lace

Lastly, this lingerie set is a Maitreya applier TCF Anniversary gift from Ambrosia. Just wear the applier hud and click it to apply both the top and bottom. Also, based on the name which you’ll see in the credits below, I expected the lingerie to be mauve. However, I’m not disappointed in the white lingerie. I think it looks very feminine and pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Time for a Little TCF

Maye & TCF
Hello Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. So I decided to take some of Love’s advice from her recent post “Finally… FaMESHed” about entering an event and I am happy to report that I was able to get into the Anniversary round of The Chapter Four. Given the meager abilities of my little laptop, I knew it would be a task to manage the event. Still, the gifts were completely worth the time I spent camera-shopping for the little pink TCF Anniversary gift boxes. I’m just going to tell you now, there are tons of gifts. I’m not even sure I picked them all up, but I gave it a good try. To get the gifts at each vendor, you’ll need to be wearing your The Chapter Four group tag. Currently there is a paltry group join fee of 50 lindens. I know that’s not what everyone likes to hear, in my opinion however, it’s well worth it just for these TCF Anniversary gifts. That said, this will the first, of at least two, maybe three posts showing off my favorites of all the fantastic gifts. I want to make sure you get a good preview, so you won’t feel so bad about that group join fee. First, let’s talk about this pretty face.

It’s Gonna Be Maye

Freckles always win in my book. These freckles are courtesy of the May group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The aptly named Maye skin comes in Omega appliers for the head and body, in the tones Sand and Apricot. If freckles aren’t your thing, there’s a non freckled version in both tones as well. You will need to join the 7 Deadly Skins group to get your May group gift. The group has a one time join fee of 225 lindens, and there are monthly gifts available for men and women.

Flowers For Your Hair

Starting from the top so to speak, this pretty floral hair wreath is the FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Cheveux. The flower crown comes in this single color, and can be resized via touch menu. Also in the package you’ll find a demo for the Cheveux hair pictured in the ad.

Ribbon For Your Neck

The cute little ribbon choker is another FREE TCF gift. This one is from .BF. and it comes with a color change hud with several solid colors for the ribbon only. There’s also a separate hud for adjusting the size. It gives you a great amount of control over the choker’s size so you can get an exact fit.

Polish For Your Nails

If you’ve been looking for a solid collection of pretty nail appliers all in one hud, it’s waiting for you at TCF. The FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Aleutia is a manicure set with 30 separate beautiful colors. That is not a typo, there are 30 colors to choose from. There are 3 separate huds included, one for Slink hands, one for Maitreya hands, and one for Belleza hands.

A Cute Top to Tie it All Together

And finally, for now, this bright colorful crop top is the FREE TCF gift from GATO. I love the bright colors! Fortunately and unfortunately the top is a Maitreya applier only. No other appliers or classic  layers are included.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/14/2017 – No Cabide

No Cabide Storefront

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
Gifts @No Cabide
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.”  Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
