Moon Child

Lunar Obsession
If you haven’t been by The Coven Lunar Festival yet, you should go if for no other reason than to enjoy the delightfully spook atmosphere, and oh yeah, tons of FREE gifts! There is some stellar shopping available as well, but this is a FREEbie blog, so I’ll try to stay focused. lol At the landing point for The Coven you’ll see a group joiner, you’ll want to join the FREE group for The Coven so you can snag all the free witchy goth goodness. Once you’re wearing The Coven group tag, you can click on the little cauldrons with glowing purple contents at each of the participating vendor booths. I picked up quite a few gifts, and it was hard to narrow things down to a few favorites. The gifts range from clothing and accessories to decor.

Boho Suit

The sexy mono-kini is a The Coven event group gift from Nightmare. This mesh swimwear fits like a glove, and has a truly unique style in the back. You’ll have to pick this FREE gift up for yourself to see what I mean. I think it’s cute on it’s own, however it would also look cute with a pair of shorts or a long skirt.

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

Chloe

I love this long hairstyle by Vallani. Named Chloe, the hairstyle is Vallani’s FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. This gift includes the single hairstyle with a color change hud. There are quite a few color options including mostly “natural” red, white, blond, brunette, and black variations. There is a highlight texture, and a soft texture option for each of the colors. The one thing that makes this hud a bit different from most is there is a tinting option that allows you to pick a hair color then tint it any color you want. The possibilities are endless!

The Cyanide Mini Series

The pose used in the above photo is part of the gift at The Coven event by An Lar. This static pose is part of a set called the Cyanide Mini Series which comes with three individual poses and their mirrors for six total static poses. As a blogger and a photographer I am always excited about awesome FREE pose gifts! This particular pose is the second in the series, and my favorite of the three.
Moon Child

Onyx

This thin collar with the starburst dangle is the FREE gift at The Coven event from Kibitz. With this gift you’ll receive the choker/collar in black with the choice of either an onyx (shown), silver, or gold charm. There are no scripts in this jewelry, however it can be sized manually. It also has the added detail of a chain clasp in the back.

Moon Tie

Maybe it’s just me but I think mouthies might be making a comeback in Second Life. This cute FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival is by Peaches. There are a few variations of this thin ribbon with dangling moons included in this gift. You can choose either a black ribbon with silver moons or gold moons, or a white ribbon with silver or gold moons.

Moon & Star Bindi

Oubliette put out this cute crescent moon and star bindi as their FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. I love how delicate it looks. This simple yet pretty bindi has no scripts or huds, however you can adjust the size and color manually using the edit menu. Should you choose to edit this yourself, I highly suggest making a copy of it first just in case!

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Lavender Key of Time

Lucky Lavender
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Lucky Lavender

This gift at Apple May Designs is extra awesome because you don’t have to join the group to get it. Non group members can pick up this adorable polka-dotted two piece Shae set in either pink or lavender for just 49 lindens per color. If you are already an Apple May Designs group member, or you wanna join (there is a one time fee of 25 lindens) you can get one or both of the Shae sets for FREE by participating in the group only Lucky Letter boards. There is also at least 1 previous group gift still available. Even though you can’t see it in this photo, there’s an enormous bow in the back that just adds to the charm of this set. It’s like retro lingerie meets Disney princess and I love it!

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

Tattoo Time

Up next, how pretty is this very feminine under-bust tattoo by Moon Tattoo?! I love all the delicate lines. You can pick up this tattoo for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. I guess 49 lindens must be a theme for this post! The inexpensive tattoo comes in an omega applier and includes a classic system tattoo layer.

 

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Best Part Of The Day

Blanket
As the sun starts to go down at night, I like to pick out the best part of my day.  Usually the best part of my day is a quiet, relaxed moment when the world stops begging of me and gives back in warm snuggles and silent peace.

Finding Fabulous Freebies At Sentinus

Another part of the day I really enjoyed yesterday was finding a  fabulous free gift at Sentinus.  You can pick up the Su Jean Shorts and Elenor Top for 0L without even joining the group.  You’ll find this in the group gifts section just outside the doors.  Maitreya and Slink fitmesh sizes are included.  I am not sure if this is a limited time offer or  if it will change to a group gift or what…  so act quickly if you’d like this cute summery outfit for free!

ETA: This gift is no longer available.  I guess it was very limited!

Capture Your Moment

Carson has already shared details about his sweater, as a free gift for L’Homme by Gizza in his recent post [HERE].  I brought him in to help me show off this sweet Spring Fever Outdoor Blanket by West End that you can purchase at this round of Swank.  It offers 1 single pose and 7 cozy couples poses – perfect for capturing your “best part of the day”.

Bright Eyes, Blue Denim

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulouses!  He’s stuck at work on this glorious warm spring day, while I have the day off ;).   Of course I’d rather we had the day off together, but I decided I’d try and make the best of it and head out to the park nearby this afternoon to enjoy the splendors of spring that I have been so missing over the long winter, like the smell of green grass, and flowers.. and the tickle of butterflies!

While I have your attention here, I have some exciting free hair news today as well as a little tidbit to share with you about a sweet summer denim dress I found as a group gift.

The Astonishing Truth

I’m sure you don’t need me to say it again… but I will… I’m a big fan of Truth Hair.  I wear it quite often on the blog, and inworld.  I was so excited to see that with his new group gift for May called Kare, he has updated his textures with more gloss and shine and has also included a Hairstylist HUD that allows you to shift the hair around your shoulders a few different ways – which is fantastic because there will be no more interfering with collars and jackets!!  This group has a one time fee of 350L to join, but seriously…  a whole fatpack of awesome hair every month…  Nuff said!

Never underestimate the power of a little denim dress

It’s a little tough to see in the photo above, so I took a few minutes and snapped another angle so you could see the Camilla Dress in Sky Denim that you can pick up as a free group gift at TRS Designs.  This group is free to join and there are multiple gifts to score.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

You Give Me Butterflies :)

AshmootWestEnd
Hey there FabFree Readers!  I couldn’t help but to jump right into the new group gift at AsHmOoT when I saw how cute it was!  I had stopped in to grab the new FabFree group gift at AsHmOoT, and noticed there was a new instore group gift as well.

AsHmOoT for everyone

All you need to do is join the AsHmOoT inworld group, which is free to join – in order to gain access to the sweet floral blouse I am wearing today.  It comes in several mesh sizes for system bodies and mesh bodies too.  I’m sure you’ll find a size for you in the pack!  It features an all over vibrant texture and offers a sexy side cut-out with a band around the back.  I like it with my jeans, but I can see wearing this with a pair of slacks, a skirt for a more formal look –  or it could even be worn as a swimsuit cover-up for the beach.

Sizes Included:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL +2 Alpha Layers
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Monochromatic

Monochrome Hi there Fab Free’rs! As always I hope everyone is well in their Second Lives, First Lives, and all Lives. I’m doing pretty good myself, I’m happy to say. For this post I have several FREE or inexpensive gifts to share with you, and I was clearly inspired by how they all came together. I really have no idea what terminology to use to describe this look. The terms modern, industrial, gothic, all come to mind. Whatever you choose to call it, I hope you like it.

First, let’s talk about all this bold metallic looking jewelry by Alter. I have to say this set is really unique, in a good way, definitely what you would call a statement set. This full set including earrings, bracelets, and necklace come together as a FREE gift available at the July round of SWANK. Each piece is scripted to be sized up or down via touch menu. While the set clearly goes together, each piece is different enough to stand alone.
Alter Mana Also among the several gifts at SWANK is this dollarbie nail applier set from IP Nails. Continuing with the metallic theme, this really pretty manicure comes in the single style shown, a soft satin grey with a gold tip. Included in this gift are appliers for Maitreya nails, Omega compatible nails, and Slink nails. Also  I want to point out that the single applier did color both my fingernails and my toenails, at least the Maitreya applier did. I would definitely wear this mani/pedi with everything, casual attire, formal attire, it will look good with any outfit.
Free Mana Saving what is in my opinion the best for last, Essences recently sent out this stunning pale skin as a FREE subscriber gift. You read that right, no group needed, just join the subscriber. I’ve always been a sucker for pretty red lips, and the makeup on this gift version of the Essences Mana skin slays. Included in this beautiful FREEbie is a full set of system skins, you get this gorgeous face in a full system layer skin with brow and cleavage options. That means classic avatars can definitely take advantage of this gift. Also included in the gift is a Lelutka head applier. Mesh body appliers can be purchased separately at the Essences main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair, Makeup, Jewelry, Oh My!

Wasabi Pru

If you haven’t made it out to Hairology yet, you need to go! This gorgeous brightly colored hair is the FREE Second Life’s 13th Birthday Gift from Wasabi Pills, now available at Hairology. This pretty gift comes in a “boobs” version, and the package includes a matching alpha layer. I really like how this hairstyle seems to have movement to it. Again, don’t miss out on this and many other FREE hair gifts at Hairology.

To go with this colorful new style, I picked up a FREE gift at SWANK by Indulge Temptation. This gorgeous flower necklace is just part of the full gift which includes matching earrings and a color change hud with several options for adjusting the color of the metal parts. This Special Edition version has lovely rainbow colored flowers to show support for everyone affected by the recent atrocity in Orlando, Florida.

Last, but never ever least, SlackGirl has put out yet another FREE group gift. This beautiful set of eye shadows has appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, additionally there are classic system makeup layers included. In other words, just about everyone can wear these sultry shadows. This gift has 8 eye shadow variations, all with a pretty gold color on the lid. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. To get this gift you’ll need to join the group and click the gift box on the gift wall at the SlackGirl main store while wearing your tag.

That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Garden Swank

Garden Swank

I managed to beat Astrid to the Swank Event! And scored a great FREE men’s gift in the process. This really amazing Baka Jacket for men (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) by Bakaboo is a FREE gift (no group required) at the current round of Swank. Several designers are giving gifts at their booths for both guys and gals, so this event is well worth visiting.

I’m sure Astrid will want to head there later now that I’ve broken the ice…

Don’t be shy… go get your Swank on!
