Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

Cute and Psycho

Psycho
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope the week has been good to you so far. Mine has been pretty good, great when I consider all the fantastic freebies I’ve been seeing on the blog. Needless to say I’m happy to be adding 3 more freebies/cheapies to the list with this post. I will let you know how and where you can score the hair, the glasses, and the dress Pru is wearing for next to nothing. I had fun with the slightly pastel goth twist to a comfy casual style, and I enjoyed wearing this look. I hope you will also.

Stardust

First, let’s talk about these long wavy locks of paste hair. This hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Moon hair. I think that Moon is pretty well known for their extra long hairstyles, and this one is a beautiful example. The hair is all pulled forward over the shoulders, and it comes with a group only color hud of gorgeous pastel ombres and fades. The Moon group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Moon HEC Psycho Barbie

One More From HEC

I don’t mind telling you that I liked the group gift sunglasses from HEC aka Hot Elegant Clothing I showed in my last post “Sunday Fun in the Sun” that I picked up the Teleport Hub group gift at HEC also. These sunglasses are equally detailed and so cute on. They also come with an amazing hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the glasses, from the lenses and frames to the nose pads. There are also two lens versions, one pair with “baked reflection” and a “flat” lens version. To get these sunnies you’ll need to join the Teleport Hub group which has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. Then you can purchase them for zero linden at the HEC main store.

Psycho  Barbie

This cute little sweater dress is a current group gift at Psycho Barbie. The dress comes in several mesh sizes and could easily be worn as a top as well as a dress. I have to admit, it is rather short! The Psycho Barbie group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift. All you need is group space. There are also quite a few previous group gifts still available.

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

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

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

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Stay Wild Flower Child

Flower Child
Hey There Fab Free’rs I’m so glad you’re here! I’m feelin’ a little bohemian today in these fabulous group gifts I came across. I have to tell you, I also feel like I’ve been unintentionally shop-stalking Love lately. We seem to end up at the same stores for our freebie finds. I think that means we both have excellent taste! I picked up these hella cute sunnies at Scandalize not realizing Love had done some Fab Free style shopping at Scandalize herself recently. See what she found in her Ray of Sunshine post. Knowing I wanted to play up the retro feel of these over-sized sunglasses, I also picked up this halter top at Sexy Princess. Finally having always been a sucker for a cute tattoo, I just had to add in the March group gift from Aurica. Ultimately I am pretty pleased with the end result of these gifts all worn together, I hope you like them too!

Good Day Sunshine 

Sunglasses are far and away my favorite accessory. These FREE group gift sunglasses are available at Scandalize. They come in pink (shown) and red color variations and are equipped with re-size scripts for easy fitting. The Scandalize group is FREE to join. You’ll find this gift on the second floor along with several previous group gifts.

Stay Wild 

I think I must be eager for warmer weather, it seems I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed a lot of warm weather styles on the blog lately. This top from Sexy Princess called out to me. It said “Pru, you need me in your closet!” lol I live in a place where it’s hot more often than not, so halter tops are almost always in fashion.  This group gift is not only super cute, it’s completely FREE at Sexy Princess. It’s also just one of the two group gifts I saw available. The top comes in fitmesh sizes, standard mesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya Lara, and one for Slink. The Sexy Princess group is also FREE to join.

Flower Child

How cute is this blue floral tattoo from Aurica?! I love the look of the bright blue flowers. They remind me of those antique china patterns. The applier set is the FREE group gift for March at Aurica. The applier hud is set up to work with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies and hands. There’s also a note in the package about how to get the tattoo to work with bento hands. The Aurica group is currently FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available. Included among the still available gifts is the New Years Zen post I did at the beginning of the year.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello Sunshine

Hello SunshineHello Fab Free’rs, we’ve made it half way through the week already! I don’t know about everyone else but where I am we have definitely started to feel the summer heat. Often the early morning is the most pleasant time of day to be outside. Everything is still cool from the night before. This cute casual sundress from American Bazaar is just the sort of thing for those cool summer mornings and on into the hot afternoon. This fully mesh dress the FREE group gift for ladies (you’ll also find a pair of swim trunks for the men!) at American Bazaar. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and the American Bazaar group is FREE to join.Hello Sunshine CloseA sundress almost requires that you wear sunglasses with it. Sunglasses are my favorite accessory anyway, so I really didn’t need to be convinced. They are also a very versatile accessory in my opinion. They can be classy, or fun, plain or artful. I am really enjoying these particular sunglasses by Pshcho byts. They are in a gacha machine at the Rock Attitude Fair for just 35 lindens per play! The best part about these sunnies from Psycho byts is the hud that comes with them. Even the commons include a hud that lets you change between several lens options, some of which have images or words, and others are a little more plain. The hud will also allow you to change the individual colors of the roses, and the color of the leaves. Honestly, I think I have a new favorite pair of sunglasses! You’ll find this gacha and several others in a little fenced area behind one of the main buildings at the Rock Attitude Fair.

By the Beautiful Briny Sea

By the SeaCome with me Fab Free, to the sea! Okay maybe not to the sea, but definitely to SaNaRae! The current round of SaNaRae has tons of cute stuff, and I scored this cute maxi dress and the sunglasses by playing a few gachas. In addition, this hairstyle is a FREE subscribo gift at Pink Hustler. I’m kind of in love with it. To top things up, I found some fun nails on the Marketplace to add a little extra attitude to this perfect summer outfit.I Wanna Tell YouWhile shopping for hair, I literally happened across this freaking adorable subscriber gift at Pink Hustler. I love that the style of this FREE hair is a little bit pinup and a little bit punk rock. All you need to do to get this FREE hairstyle is join the subscriber at Pink Hustler. This awesome freebie includes more than one size, and a color change hud that allows you to change either side of the hair independently, or you could make both sides the same color. There are lots of options to choose from.

I love the fun bright colors in these funky sunglasses from Minimal. The glasses are a gacha common from Minimal at the SaNaRae event. These cool shades are just 75 lindens per play, and there are tons of variations. Also at SaNaRae is this ultra comfortable and just as cute maxi dress from Mignon. Also a gacha common, this dress is just 50 lindens per play. Make sure to try the demos before you decide which gacha to play! I genuinely love this casual look, and scouts honor, I got these two gachas on my first try.

Lastly, I couldn’t resist adding some fun nails to this already awesome look. While poking through the Marketplace I came across these brightly colored stiletto style manicured nails from SHOCK. These are just 1 linden! Included in the package are nails to fit Maitreya, Slink (Gesture, Splayed, Elegant1, Casual), TMP, and Classic non mesh hands, and a color change/re-size hud with 5 color options. Read the note card included about fitting, it saved me what would have otherwise been a headache!
