Soak in the Sun

FF Gift_005 (2)

Ah, the beach and the sun. It’s been so long since I’ve been afforded the luxury of a lovely summer retreat! I may not be wearing the best attire for the beach right now, but I don’t plan on swimming today. I just want to soak in the sun and wrap up inside this beach bed and curl up with a good book. Time for a summer vacation!

Adela @ Evolve

Today I am wearing the Adela dress by Evolve. This is a new-to-me store, and their clothes are beautifully made! Today I am wearing the Adela mesh dress in blue. This was my favourite colours of the dress which is why  I featured it as the cover photo. This is an MLM Frees & Offers group gift. Like other freebie groups in SL such as TeleportHub, SLFO, FabFree, etc., the MLM Frees & Offers group is a real keeper! I’ve been in this group for probably 2 years and collected tonnes of freebies around the grid. The MLM Frees & Offers group costs only 5 linden to join. 

Here is the join link for the MLM Frees & Offers group (just copy the code into private or nearby chat in SL):

You can also get the Adela dress in a Mango Sorbet colour for free with the Sexy, Fashionable, Gorgeous Me (SFGM) group tag active. The SFGM group is another AMAZING freebie group and it’s run by the same folks that organize Free Dove. The SFGM group is currently free to join, but I’m not sure for how long (the group normally costs a small fee to join.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – 7 Deadly s[K]ins

It’s been a minute since we had a Designer Friday feature post on the blog, so even though it’s late in the day we are getting it done this week! For this post it’s all about skins, 7 Deadly s[K]ins to be exact. 7 Deadly s[K]ins has been an almost constant participant in the Fab Free community, which we of course love. So I am happy to be telling you all about this awesome shop. There are two floors of shopping at the 7 Deadly s[K]ins main store. New releases, gifts, and newer female skins are all on the first floor. The second floor is where you’ll find the male skins, discount skins, and some of the previous group gifts available for sale.

Along with their male and female skins there are lots of extras you can get to further customize your look. There are things such as freckles, makeup, body moles, cleavage options, and more that you can purchase at 7 Deadly s[K]ins. There’s also large number of skin-tones, most of which fall into a light to medium tone range. There are also lots of applier choices, and many of the skins are BOM. Additionally you can purchase shapes at 7 Deadly s[K]ins that are made specifically to suit their skins.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Store Group 

7 Deadly s[K]ins known for frequent and generous gifts for both male and female avatars. The group has a join fee of 295 linden. With the group tag you get exclusive sales, discounts, and gifts. Also, there are Mini Mania boards, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards that require the group tag to participate. Each month 7 Deadly s[K]ins offers a free male and female group gift skin. Currently there are also 2 7 Deadly s[K]ins Anniversary gifts with a full set of free skins in the boxes. You’ll find those gifts inside the entrance on the wall between the two doors. Current male and female group gifts are located behind the information desk.

The group only prize boards and camping chairs at 7 Deadly s[K]ins are mostly on the first floor. There are 3 total camping chairs (2 on the first floor, and 1 on the second) that offer gifts. The group only Mini Mania boards are on the first floor. There are 6 total boards with 5 female gifts, and 1 male. You’ll find Lucky Letter boards on both floors. There are 7 total boards, 2 of which have male prizes, and 5 of them have female prizes.  I also spotted a Lottery Board on the second floor that appeared to contain a 300 linden 7 Deadly s[K]ins gift card.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Fab Free Group Gift

The Fabulously Free in SL group gift at 7 Deadly s[K]ins is a pretty female skin called Mareike. She comes in 7 tones with Omega head/body appliers, and BOM layers. The Fabulously Free in SL group is required, however it is (and always will be) free to join. You’ll find this free gift waiting near the Midnight Madness boards on the first floor at 7 Deadly s[K]ins.

 

Other Gifts and Sales

7 Deadly s[K]ins is participating in the Saturday Sale with a female skin priced at just 70 linden per tone. There was another sales board, however there was not a current offer. Perhaps that’ll be a future offer. Toward the back of the store on the right side there are 2 Midnight Mania boards that are open to everyone, no group required. This area is also where you’ll find several gifts for other groups.

Sitting on shelves on the wall there are vendors with group logos. Each group has their own gift, which you can get by wearing the group tag for that group and clicking the vendor box with the corresponding group logo. I counted 9 total gifts including the gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. There’s also a free Stay at Home Club gift on the first floor that includes the full Akyla skin with Omega head/body appliers, BOM layers, brow shaper, and a shape intended for Genus heads.

Lumae @ The Wash Cart Sale with a little Open 1995 thrown in.

Hello again lovelies! How is your weekend going? I had a rough start….I was without an internet connection for most of the day 😦 Everything’s better now, and good thing too, as I really couldn’t wait to show you the gorgeous skin being offered at Lumae’s Cart for the Wash Cart Sale!

LumaeCart2

This lovely lady is called Alaska, and she is a special preview of a new skin line that Lumiya Rae, owner and creator of Lumae, is working on. The cart sale version is called flirt, and I think it is a great name, with the pretty turquoise eyeshadow, and luscious pink lips. There are 8 skin tones available for L$10 a piece, and each one has a few brow options with and without freckles, not to mention all the cleavage layers you could want, as well as Loud Mouth, and Nyam Mouth appliers. If you need other appliers, they are available in a single hud back at the Lumae store, for a pretty reasonable L$100 per tone. I thought I would show you what I look like using the Loud Mouth, and with my own mouth. This is the first time I’ve used the Loud Mouth. What do you think? Not bad eh? The lips on this skin really works well for it.

LumaeCart1

Just in case you were eyeing up the cute little dress I am wearing, you will be pleased to hear that it is a current SLF&O’s group gift from Open 1995. It is mesh, and comes in all the standard sizes. Just slap on your SLF&O group tag, and this baby is yours for free! I love free 🙂

LumaeCart4

Here is a shot of the Lumae Cart so you know what to look for if you don’t take that direct TP I gave you.

Well, I must be off for now, my tummy is telling me that it is dinner time, and one must not ignore a rumbley tummy! Never fear, I will be back later. But, until that time, TTFN! *waves*

Dita likes B!ASTA @ the Cart Sale.

Hooray!! It’s that time of year again, the Biannual Wash Cart Sale! Even before I started blogging for FabFree, this was one of my favourite events to go to. How can you beat a great selection of L$10 items to buy, from so many different designers? You really can’t.

B!ASTACart1

I am going to show off 2 of the great finds from the B!ASTA cart. While I have a clear favourite outfit, it was really tough to choose which of the others to show you, as I really liked everything, but I managed to settle on a great short and top set.

B!ASTACart2

If you couldn’t tell from it being featured in my first picture, I just love the Walk the Dog fitmesh dress, and I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. It has a great retro vibe.

B!ASTACart3

The Hug Me suede shorts, combined with the Just Darling, ruffled, sleeveless blouse, make up the Hug Me Darling outfit. It’s a great summery look, and lucky for us, you can find summer throughout SL no matter what the season is in RL.

B!ASTACart7

Like all Wash Cart Sale items, both of these are only L$10 each, and they are a steal at that price. As you can see in the shot above, there are quite a few other great outfits to choose from on this cart, but honestly, you just need to TP over there and take a look for yourself, and here is your direct taxi.

B!ASTACart5

I was lucky enough to find a great retro feel skin to go along with my favourite Dog dress. I am wearing the -=>> G.C <<=- Dita- Umber Tone Gift for SLF&O from Genesis Creations, and it is a free gift for SLF&O group members. It comes with your choices of dark brows, and no brows, cleavage, and no cleavage, as well, there are an assortment of appliers.  The matte red lipstick works so well with the red dress, I think I am just going to save this whole outfit 🙂

B!ASTACart6

To finish off my look, I had to have the right manicure, and as Love mentioned HERE, alaskametro has released some new SLink mani and pedi sets. The Vamp set in silver was perfect, and the price of L$25 was even more perfect.

OK lovelies, I must be off, more carts to see, more wonderful things to add to my inventory! Until next time, TTFN.

Ooh la la, Paris, c’est manifique!

It’s been a little while since I was last in Paris, so I thought that today would be a good day to take a stroll around the city. Of course, with Paris being the fashion capital of the world, I needed to look my best. Lucky for me, I had a few great group gifts that made me totally look the part.

redparis1

My bright and summery dress came from a hot tip from Love, about this cute dress being offered as a group gift at CandyMetal. I ran my little booty over there, and knew I had to have it, I mean…just look at that red! The Peggy Summer Dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. The CandyMetal group is free to join, so once you join, and slap your tag on, this beauty is yours, for free, after touching the poster. I just love the sweet bow on the chest.

redparis4

Speaking of bows, the killer heels I am wearing are also adorned with bows 🙂 The .:ECCO:. Velize 2 in White are a SLF&O’s group gift. These are made for SLink high feet, and there is a second version in the folder that comes without bows, just in case you don’t like bows…but how could you not? The SLF&O’s group is free to join, and if you have your tag on, the shoes are free for you! If you love these shoes, you will be happy to know that there is a second pair available for free for members of our very own Fabulously Free in SL group, which is also free to join (though I am sure most of you reading this blog are already in it). 2 free pairs of sexy heels, just for being in groups you are probably already a part of? *does a happy dance*

*Edit – So sorry folks, when I originally posted this, I thought there was a version for standard AV feet as well, but I am mistaken, so I have removed the part where I said that. Sorry for any inconvenience.

redparis2

OK, while I loved the look of the shoes and dress alone, I felt, trying to be very fashion conscious, that I needed an accessory. I hopped onto the Marketplace and typed in ‘Clutch’. I know, this cute little purse is not a clutch purse, but that’s ok, the bright colours totally worked with my dress, and best of all? It was only L$1! Score! The My Heart Bag – Dollarbie is from the Marketplace store of Things I Like, and there really is an awful lot of things I like there. You get 2 purses in the folder, each with a slightly different holding pose. Both are set to attach to your right hand, I just did a little adjustment to put it in my left hand so as to work with my pose.

redparis3

I confess, while I am wandering around Paris, it is actually Paris in 1900. So, despite being fashionable for our time period, I stick out a little. Luckily, landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc D’Triumphe are timeless. I highly suggest you come take a look around here if you have never been.

Mes bons amis, il est temps de se dire au revoir, which is french for, My good friends, it is time to say goodbye. Well, at least until I find some other wonderful thing I have to show you all, which will be in no time at all! So until then, c’est tout pour le moment, which is about the same as TTFN *waves*

Don’t you want me Baby….Don’t you want me ohhh, ohohohhhh….

Hello FabFree readers!! How is your weekend going? Mine has been pretty good. So far, I’ve spent quite a bit of it putting together a great outfit to show you, and listening to some 80’s pop, hence the title of this post. My outfit has a touch of 80’s flare to it, or at least I think, so I ‘spose I better tell you all about it, eh? LOL

RDDress2

The fabulous dress I am wearing is the {RS} Cheyenne Dress from Rowena’s Designs, and is one of her free group gifts set out for the SLF&O’s group. The dress is mesh, and of course it is available in 5 standard sizes from XXS-L. I really love the texture detail on this one, you really have to put it on and walk around in a lovely sim in it, like I did, to truly appreciate it! It’s all about the ambiance 🙂

My hot red shoes are curtousy of the closing out sale from  *CASHMERE&KEANE*.  They are the *CASHMERE*Stamped Pointed Platforms, and like the shoes I showed you HERE, the fatpack is available for only L$25, just make sure you left click the fatpack box, as right clicking does not give you the option to buy. There are 12 different colours in this pack, so you will have shoes to match every outfit possible…really. Does anyone else love the shiny metal toe cap as much as I do?

To finish my outfit off, I went with the impressive Cougar jewelry set, in this great leopard print, which is the free, May group gift from FINESMITH. I know, it’s June, but as of today, the May gift was still available. This set, which comes with a necklace, earrings, and a 3-finger ring is really for when you want to make a statement with what you are wearing, as the pieces are so bold and chunky. I just love the flow of the links in the necklace. The group is still free to join, but as I said before, I am not sure for how long…so you better get going if you have been holding off on joining. Oh, and just a fyi, the set is not on the little island where all the other group gifts are, when you land in the store from my slurl, walk to your left along the water’s edge until you get to the stairs leading into the water, the display board will be to your left, and you just need to left click the board with your group tag on to receive the Cougar set.

Well, I hope you liked this look as much as I do. I have it saved as an outfit in my Outfits folder so I can throw it on whenever I want, which I can bet will be often. That’s it for me for now, until next time, TTFN *waves*

I see you Friday, you can’t hide from me…

Hello Fabfree’rs!! How has your week been going? Mine has been long, but I see Friday just around the corner. To make myself feel better about this week, I had to put together something great for you all, and I think I managed quite nicely. You be the judge…

LIVGlamWS1

So of course, by now, you should all know about the SL Frees & Offers group, as I believe every one of us bloggers here on FabFree have posted something from this wonderful group. I just can’t get over how many great designers are putting out gifts for SLF&O’s group members. My outfit is one of 10 free gifts available right now at LIVGlam for SLF&O group members. Yes, you read that right, 10!! It was hard to choose which one to show you, but I just loved the colour choices and pattern of the shirt in the [LG] Boutique-[Summer 13]  Kilian Tunic Outfit, that I had to show it to you all. When you slap your SLF&O’s group tag on and click the picture of this beautiful outfit, you get a hud to wear. This hud will give you your outfit, as well as serve as the texture changer for the shirt. The shirt and jeans are both mesh, with sizes XXS-L.  There are 6 different colour combinations of this summery floral print, but I’ve only shown you 5. The 6th is a just as lovely black and white, but you know me and colour…I am all about the colour!

LIVGlamWS2

Speaking of colour, I found the classy *AE* Millefiori Gold/Red necklace, earrings and ring, from Always Eclectic, set out at the WOMENStuff gift lounge, and it paired just perfectly with the red in my shirt, unfortunately, my earrings are hiding in my hair, but they are just as lovely as the necklace. The group is only L$50 to join, but when you do, you have access to so many wonderful gifts from a lot of great designers, all for free!

LIVGlamWS3

Alright lovelies, that’s it from me for now, but don’t worry, I am already working on the next look to show off, so keep your eyes peeled for it! TTFN *waves*
