I Dream of Bora Bora


I dream of Bora Bora

Hi Fab Free! Thank you as always for being here. I’m so excited to share the most recent group gifts at Beautiful Dirty Rich with you. I think it’s been fairly obvious that I’ve been dreaming about a visit to the beach for a while now. This warm weather dress with the bright colors and tropical print screams seaside, sunshine, and fun times.

Not only is the dress gorgeous, it comes with a cool hud that lets you change colors and textures for the skirt and top, there are so many options. It also allows you to custom tint the colors, and you can choose to hide or show the top and skirt. Why would you want to do that you ask? The gift includes a matching thong/swimsuit bottom that when worn with the skirt hidden makes a super cute bikini. Last but not least there is also a cute as heck pair of wedge sandals to complete the look which I did not get a photo of. Right now the BDR group is free to join, and there are quite a few gifts available. I’ll include the ad for this gift and the matching shoes below.

*B.D.R.* New Group Gifts

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza Freya

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Good Vibes and Lemonade


The Pier

Hi Fab Free’rs! Can summer please come a little faster?! I keep daydreaming of fun outdoor activities by the water on a warm sunny day. Until that sunny summer day we at least got the Good Vibes Hunt happening in Second Life to keep us occupied. The Good Vibes Hunt takes place on a beautiful richly decorated summer time sim. It’s worth it to just visit the setting, the “Good Vibes” theme is definitely present. The Good Vibes Hunt prizes are 25 linden or less (most appear to be 25L) and each participating shop has a minimum of 5 prizes hidden around the sim. Also, what summer day would be complete without something ice cold and refreshing? None that I know of! To finish off this summer look, I picked up some free group gift lemonade at Micamee. Keep reading for all the details!

For this post I hunted down a few of the Good Vibes Hunt prizes from Loki, and one of the prizes by Go&See. Both shops have their items set at 25 linden each. The clothing items from Loki are fit for Maitreya Lara bodies only. The eyes are appliers for Catwa eyes, or Genus eyes. The gacha keys are included below so you can get a look at what each shop has to offer. Pru is wearing item 01, and 06 from Loki, and item 02 from Go&See. Also, the eye appliers from Go&See are separate, there are 5 Catwa eye appliers, and 5 genus eye appliers, so be sure to pay attention to what is in the hunt prize before you buy it!

Lastly, lemonade! I was poking through some pose shops, and found my way to Micamee. There are a handful of pose gifts at Micamee that are free to group members. Pru’s delicious looking lemonade is part of the “Lemonade Potion” gift. This gift includes a right and left hand held lemonade with no pose, and a right and left version with a static hold pose. The Micamee group is free to join.

Shipwrecked in Paradise


Shipwrecked

Hello Fab Free’rs! I was away for the weekend and I’m sincerely glad to be back. I love this little romper by Canimal. Truth told, despite how much I adore sweater weather, there’s a part of me that is actually starting to look forward to summer again. I’m also sincerely enjoying this cheeky red hairstyle by CHAIN. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get both for free or almost free!

The Romper – Incase you were not aware, Canimal has several lucky letter boards on the second floor of their main location. There is no group required for these boards. The adorable “Paradise” romper Pru is wearing is one of the items you can win should your letter appear. Nothing screams summer quite like a tropical print. This lucky letter board freebie at Canimal comes in a single mesh size and has a texture change hud with several tropical prints to choose from, and one that’s bananas. No really, the print is bananas. hehehe If I had to guess I’d say the size is a Maitreya Lara fit, though it’s not marked that I saw.

The Hairstyle – Even though red hair is usually Juli’s department, this style by CHAIN was too cute to pass up. It is their most recent group gift. This cute bob hairstyle comes with optional hairclips, and a color change hud with several pink and red hues. The CHAIN store group does have a 1 time join fee of 99 linden. Once you’re wearing your group tag, you can pick up this group gift as well as several others still available. Also there are 3 lucky letter boards you’ll have access to.

One in a Melon

One in a Mellon
Hello Fab Free’rs! We survived Monday! I think that in itself is worth celebrating. I don’t know about you, but I like to treat myself with some shopping, especially when the shopping doesn’t really cost much. Right now you can pick up a set of adorable summertime themed tanks like the one Pru has on for free with your group tag at Hot Elegant Clothing (HEC). This group gift comes in a few different sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s also a fantastic color/texture change hud that not only allows to pick from several preset color/image options, it also lets you choose the opacity of the top, and toggle on or off the full bright option. I love the version Pru has on. It says “One in a Melon.” What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good pun. To get yours simply head over to HEC and join the in-world group. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your HEC group tag.

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.

Those Summer Nights

Summer Nights
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is having a good week. It’s getting hot down here in the south and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a warm summer night than at the beach in some warm tropical location. A girl can dream right?! For this look I went by Swallow and picked up a few of their many many group gifts. The flower headband and the two-piece swimwear/lingerie set are both current group gifts at Swallow.

The Headband – I like this different take on the flower crown/leather headband accessory from Swallow. It has resize scripts for easy fitting, and a color change hud so you can match your outfit. This gift is one of the most recent group gifts at Swallow. The Swallow group has a small join fee of 40 lindens.

The Bikini/Lingerie – I’m not sure if this two piece was meant for the beach, but the beautiful thing about Second Life is your lingerie can often double as extra cute sexy swimwear.  The “Lust Set” at Swallow is another group gift available to all Swallow group members. This gift is a fatpack with several sizes and color options. I think this set alone is well worth the 40 lindens it costs to join the Swallow group.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP

Hello Again Fab Free’ers! I am feeling the weekend vibes, as you can see I had a lot of fun with this look.
