Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

Corn-Dog Hustler

Corndog
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t mind telling you I had a wonderfully lazy weekend so far. I hope yours has been just as awesome. Speaking of awesome, I am excited to share the several gifts I used to create this look. I’d struggle to tell you what my exact personal style is, I’m a little bit pin up, a little bit goth, and a little bit grunge. Ha! This look definitely matches my eclectic tastes, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Corn Dog

There’s something wonderful about food in Second Life. You can enjoy anything and everything without any negative affects. Fair food like this corn dog from Label Motion has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s terrible for you, but oh so good! Now you can enjoy a corn dog and have zero guilt. This fun prop is a FREE subscriber gift from Label Motion. I did have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get the gift, but the minimal effort was well worth it. In the gift you’ll get a mustard version (one whole, one half eaten), and a ketchup version (also whole or half eaten).  I think it makes for a super cute photo prop.

The Hustler

Pink Hustler has several group gifts out right now, the most recent of which is this super adorable bandanna hairstyle. No pin-up girl wardrobe would be complete without it. Not to mention it’s one of those styles that can dress up or be very casual. The gift includes the hairstyle and two color change huds. The huds also include several floral textures for the bandanna.

While picking up the group gift hairstyle at Pink Hustler, I also snagged a copy of the bento nails group gift that is still available. These extra long claws are seriously cute. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick colors for every other nail, or you can choose to color them all the same. There are quite a few polka dotted color options in bright summery colors. There’s also a cute little bow on the left ring finger that has separate color options. These bento nails by Pink Hustler come in a Maitreya fit only. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. As I mentioned before, there are several past gifts still available including the two shown here today!

A Little Side Note: Pru is also wearing a few past group gifts that had been previously blogged but are still available! The top is a FREE group gift at Vinyl (group is FREE to join) which was originally blogged by Love here. The eye makeup is also a FREE (group is 100L to join) group gift from Slack Girl previously blogged by me here.  

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome. Today we are taking a rare look at a Prudence Rexroth in her natural habitat, and preferred state of being. Notice the sleep mask she wears serves a dual purpose, warning any who might disturb her away while simultaneously blocking out any and all light. Also noteworthy, the casual comfortable attire, essential for deep restful sleep. All cheekiness aside, I do have a very serious relationship with my bed. I love sleeping, and I think naps are deeply undervalued. Just like toddlers, most adults I know (myself included) are cranky when they haven’t had enough rest!

This sleep mask from Poeme is the perfect sleep accessory for those like me who take their siestas seriously. The Poeme group is just 1 linden to join at this time and you can pick up this cute FREE gift on the second floor. It’s sitting in a box on a table near the group lucky letter boards and Midnight Mania. There’s also a June group gift available on the Poeme main floor, so don’t miss out on the chance to score some gifts and stay for some lucky letter play.

The comfy casual tank top Pru has on is a FREE subscriber gift at Curve. It comes with a color change hud for 6 total color options. To get this sweet gift, all you have to do is join the Curve subscriber, once your name is added in the Curve subscriber you’ll be sent this FREE gift automatically.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Bike-Riding Attire

Bike Ride

Hello FabFree! *Waves!* I’ve been busy moving in real life to a new house and it’s kept me away (and very busy). I just put the finishing touches on my new kitchen! I moved from an apartment to a house and now have a back yard! I’m so excited! My new neighborhood has sidewalks that are great for bike riding, so I thought a bike ride in second life would be perfect to commemorate my return to FabFree after my hiatus! I found this quaint neighborhood with a bike rezzer and took a ride!

My riding attire…

… is almost entirely from one place! You’ll want to pick up all these goodies to enjoy for your own adventures!

Feeling Lucky!

I guess it was my lucky day at Graffitiwear as well! I won both this shirt and these shoes on “lucky” items. The shirt is from the Group Only Lucky Board at Graffitiwear. The group is only 5L and gives you access also to a Midnight Mania Board as well as a monthly group gift, so it’s well worth joining. My letter came up and the Silk Top was mine! It comes with a color change hud that includes 8 different textures. Sizes included: Standard Mesh XXS – L and Maitreya.

I also took a dive into the free Lucky Dip and came up with the free pair of bunny shoes you see in the picture! How cute are these! You’ll get them in black and white both, as well as fits for both Slink and Maitreya feet!

Top it off!

I really loved the Subscriber Gift at Graffitiwear for June. If you are not currently a subscriber, be sure to go subscribe and get your free Flower Head Wreath to decorate your favorite hair style. If you are currently a subscriber and missed getting the gift, just slap the sign above the subsciber and it will be delivered to you for you to wear!

Pretty in Pastels

Pastel
Hello Fab Free’rs, It’s been such a busy week for me, I’m just not sure why! lol Needless to say I’m always excited when I get to share my Fabulous finds with you. Even after all the time I’ve spent in Second Life, and all the experiences I’ve had, bargain hunting remains one of my favorite pastimes. The best bargains however, are the ones that come to you, no hunting required.

The Best Things in Second Life are Free

Just recently Graffitiwear sent out this beautiful jewelry set to their subscriber members. Each item in this FREE gift is beautifully detailed. The lovely pink floral image is perfect for spring, not to mention the upcoming Easter holiday. The full set is included in this gift from Graffitiwear. To get your copy, head over to Graffitiwear and join the subscriber. The gift will be delivered to you automatically. Already joined but missed the gift? Just click the subscriber and it will redeliver the gift.

To compliment my new pretty baubles I picked up the latest Fab Free exclusive group gifts at Hello Dave, all 3 of them. Nope, that’s not a typo, Hello Dave has 3 nail applier sets out for FREE to all Fab Free group members. The nail color Pru is wearing is part of the matte Sweet Like Sugar set. There’s a matching glossy version, and a special Speckled Eggs set. Each of the 3 sets has pretty pastel colors. The appliers will work with Slink, Omega, and Maitreya nails. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendors at Hello Dave. Don’t forget, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

The Skin Pru’s In 

This lovely face is courtesy of WoW Skins, via their April group gift. I always like the combination of a soft smokey eye with a pale lip. The April group gift at WoW includes two classic system skins (one with a little extra cleavage), and an Omega applier that works for Omega compatible bodies and heads. To get this FREE group gift, you’ll need to join the WoW Skins group which carries a one time join fee of 450 linden. Once you’re wearing your group tag, you can click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. There is also a male group gift available, and there are several group only Lucky Letter boards. Additionally, you can pick up a box full of all previous group gifts next to each of the group gift vendors.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Touch of Lace

One Fine Day_001

Something lacy.

We’re well into March and the days of green and shamrocks, but I was visiting Graffitiwear and the subscriber gift really caught my eye. It is this pretty pink lacy dress that I just really had to have. And all you have to do is click the subscriber and this dress is yours free! I love that it is an applier dress (I do love applier clothing) and I really like the mesh skirt panel that adds a nice dimension to it.

What comes in the box:

  • System Layers for standard avatar bodies
  • Applier for TMP, Omega, Slink, and Wowmeh
  • Rigged mesh skirt panel in standard sizes XXS – L

One Fine Day_002

A little sparkle.

I also stopped by Chop Zuey just to see if there was anything new. There is a pretty “Heart Brillante'” gift out that fit with my new dress just perfectly. I picked up the necklace and ring both as the free group gift (the group is 350L to join but the gifts are always generous and plentiful). I love the sparkle and they resize easily too. There is a set of matching earrings out as well and those are free to all if you want to pick those up.

Maybe I’m a Joker

Wasabi Pills GiftWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fabulously Free in SL Blog. I have to say the closer it gets to Halloween the more excited I get. No matter how old I am, Halloween will always be my favorite holiday, whether I dress up or not. Speaking of dressing up, I’ve got some fun freebies to share with you. This look is made up of a FREE subscriber gift from Wasabi Pills, and a FREE group gift from Dulce Secrets.

This purple and green hair with the stylized bangs and pointed buns by Wasabi Pills made me think of a female interpretation of The Joker. haha I know if I were going to dress up as The Joker for Halloween, I’d certainly go for hair like this. I like to keep things a little more on the glamorous side. To add this playful hairstyle to your collection, simply head over to Wasabi Pills, and join the subscriber outside the main entrance. If you’re already a Wasabi Pills subscriber member, like me, click the subscriber kiosk and get this FREE gift delivered from the message history.
Dulce Secrets GiftThe moment I saw this frilly embellished outfit from Dulce Secrets, I had to have it! The widely varied style elements make this FREE group gift really versatile. What makes it even more versatile is the fact that it’s 3 separate pieces. The jacket, the corset, and the skirt can all be worn separately as well as together. Each piece comes in standard mesh sizes. I love the darkly whimsical look of this outfit, and the little details in the zippers, and buckles.  You could easily dress it up to be anything in this outfit,  from a super villain to a steampunk pirate and everything in between. The Dulce Secrets group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this FREE gift at the back of the store near the Midnight Mania board.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Falling Stars

Falling Stars Hello and Happy Hump Day Fab Free! I have a quick post for you today featuring FREE jewelry from Graffitiwear and a dollarbie manicure by Sparkle Bunny. So let’s get right to it. I really like this jewelry set from Graffitiwear, especially the idea of falling stars. There are so many happy things my mind associates with falling stars that I couldn’t help wanting this set. I also think the jewelry looks very unique. To get this FREE necklace and earring set from Graffitiwear all you need to do is join their subscriber group. This manicure from Sparkle Bunny is such a perfect match with the jewelry set that I couldn’t pass it up. I found this shiny black polish with dark gold stars on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This dollarbie by Sparkle Bunny is a Maitreya nail applier only, and it will allow you to apply a manicure and a pedicure.

they fell from above
and I thought of hate, and I thought of hate,

Wild Pink Butterfly

Butterflies Hello Fab Free’rs! For once I’ve had a fairly quiet day in RL and I’m glad. It’s about time! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have a few group gifts, one from Hucci (technically a subscriber gift), and one from The Skinnery. Also, Indulge Temptation is celebrating 2 years with two ways score a beautiful celebratory gift.

The subscriber gift a Hucci is this lovely magenta colored mesh sleeveless top. The shirt comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, as well as Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. As you can see this low cut “WildPink” is meant to be sexy yet casual, I think it could also be worn over an applier top if you wanted a little more coverage. To get this FREE subscriber gift at Hucci simply join the Subscriber, if the gift isn’t sent to you, use the message history to have the gift delivered.
Butterfly To go with the top from Hucci, I also picked up this pretty raspberry colored lip stain from The Skinnery. This Catwa lip applier is a FREE group gift at The Skinnery. It comes in a set of 4 stains. Each color has a normal version and smudgy version that makes it look as though you’ve messed up your lip-color with a little kissing! The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve got your group tag, simply click the gift vendor and your lip stain set will be delivered. There are also several past group gifts still available.

The bold beautiful butterfly jewelry shown in the photos is a fun hunt prize or group gift from Indulge Temptation. This specific set along with several color change huds are the way Indulge Temptation is celebrating their 2 year Anniversary! There are 2 ways you can get this gorgeous set of statement jewelry. If you don’t want to join the in world group, you can hunt each piece at the main store. Each hidden part of the set is 10 lindens and there are 12 total pieces, most of which are the color change huds that allow you to adjust the color of the jewels as well as the metal parts. You can also resize these pieces of jewelry for the best fit. Not up for a hunt? No problem. Indulge Temptation group members can pick the full set up for FREE as a group gift.  The in world group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, and there are previous group gifts available as well. You’ll find this and the other gifts in a room to the left of the landing point.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
