Queen Bee

Queen Bee_002

I’ve been out gathering the last blooms before fall really sets in. We’ve had a few warm days and some of the flowers still are blooming. The cold nights will soon be frosting over the last of the buds though.

Late Bloomer

This ruffled romper is perfect for picking late blooms with its pretty lacy textured design and soft color. And you can pick it up free at Ashmoot. It’s their exclusive FabFree gift to all of us! Just don your FabFree group tag and head over to the Ashmoot main-store to pick it up.

Available sizes:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Pose pretty!

My pretty pose is another 12L gift from the TWE12VE event! You can find this gift at the B’Style booth and the pose is called “Angel”. It is great for Second Life photographers! And for only 12L, I couldn’t pass it up!

Queen Bee

Since I’m picking all these flowers, I have decided that I’m queen bee for the day, as stated by my most excellent tattoo. This was another TWE12VE event gift. I picked this gift up for 12L at the Lush booth. Inside the box was the cute omega applier tattoo pictured above!

A special gift

NSP Florals and [MUSE] sent out their September gift via group notices with a special announcement that their main-store would be temporarily closed due to an SL glitch (it will reopen as soon as possible). In the meantime you can get the current group gift in the notices (but hurry, notices only stay active for two weeks and it’s already been a few days). That’s where I got my beautiful set of 50s swing jewelry that I paired with my outfit.

Note* If you’re not already in the group, copy and paste this: secondlife:///app/group/fc7863f9-aea1-e3d3-9705-b37dd4bcd531/about into local chat and use it to join the group!

Don’t worry, the NSP Florals satellite store is still open and you can go to it to do your regular shopping for now using this teleport by clicking here. And the main-store will be back up soon! In the meantime, pick up the group gift from the notices!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

Nymph 1

I always feel like it’s pretty special when I can find gifts to put together a free roleplay outfit. Especially one that I feel is top quality. I’ve already shown you some of the great gifts to be had at the Gacha Garden in my posts here and here, but I wanted to make sure that I put together a roleplay look when I discovered that several quality roleplay creators were involved in the event!

Nymph or Dancing Girl?

I’m not sure if I feel like a Nymph or a Dancing Girl in this silk and chains outfit by Broken Style, but I do know it is beautiful. This free gift at the Gacha Garden by the Broken Style gacha machine includes a skirt and top that are separate and come in one Maitreya Lara size.

The top includes the mesh arm wraps that move beautifully with your avatar (I didn’t have any clipping issues at all) so they would be perfect for dancing and they worked great with my Animation Override. The detail on the chains and the breast plates is simply stunning.

Nymph 2

The Tattoo…

I picked up the free gift bag at Fallen Gods and saw that it was a tattoo and wasn’t sure what to expect… and then I was blown away at how beautiful this forehead tattoo was. I was even more thrilled at the fact that it is a full fatpack of colors — 19 colors in fact. You’ll get system layers if you are still rocking your system head as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads. I found it easy to apply the tattoo to my Catwa head. (Color shown is “blood.”)

The Crowning Glory…

Near the Kite gacha machine I picked up the free gift and it gave me what became the “crowning glory” of my outfit… this flowered crown of roses. Inside the free gift package is three different colored rose crowns: pink, rose (shown), and white. So you’re sure to find a color to match other roleplay outfits as well as this one. It was also easily editable to get it to fit with my head and hair. I just stretched it a bit and adjusted it and voila, it was perfect!

Enjoy the gifts at the Gacha Garden and if you decide to wear this out to roleplay, Happy roleplaying!

A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

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

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

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

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Appliers included:

  • System
  • Signature
  • Belleza
  • Physique
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya

A Gift that is still out…

March 8 was recognized as International Women’s Day, and This is Wrong, celebrated by giving a lovely free tattoo gift to ladies at a party that evening. Though I’m a little late in posting (okay several days late), it’s not too late to get the gift.

The Brooks tattoo, which comes in Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza appliers is a free to all gift that is now down in the main-store of This is Wrong, and you can pick it up for free, no group required. If it helps you feel empowered or inspired, all the better. 😉

Off next week for a break…

I’m feeling equally inspired and as such will be taking a break next week for some very special “me” time in real life. I’ll be back after the 17th or 18th and look forward to seeing you all again in posts here on FabFree. Have a wonderful week!

Never Too Tired

Never Too Tired

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative this month, with lots of amazing gifts for us menfolk to fill out our inventories. I opted for a new hairstyle today, which I picked up from Speakeasy. This FREE gift, is courtesy of the creator as part of the hunt. Just search for the beer and buy it for 0L. It includes two side-swept mesh styles, and huds for a full fatpack of colors. It’s well worth hunting down.

I’m never too tired for a good deal, so I also swung by It’s Gau and picked up the FREE men’s group gift from the back of the store. Join the group FREE and this tattoo you see me wearing is yours FREE. It comes in a system layer as well as appliers for TMP and Signature mesh bodies.

360 Cargo

360 Cargo

Today’s likely to be a busy day today, but luckily I have pockets… because I figure I’ll need them to hold all the sticky note reminders of all I have to do. These FREE gift cargo pants in blue are by 360 and the group is FREE to join as well so you won’t spend a single linden if you decide to pick them up. They come in all the standard sizes and you get an excellent alpha layer. There is a bonus grey tank top included with the pants, but I opted to go without in order to show off the July tattoo gift at Suicide Gurls.

One hint on the FREE pants… 360 is part of Allure, which is a Ladies store. If the teleport lands you downstairs in the women’s section, simply walk upstairs to the men’s department, which is 360, and that’s where you’ll find the gift.

But I digress… this July group gift from Suicide Gurls is excellent. Like all their group gift tattoos, it is unisex… so ladies you can pick it up too if you fancy it. The group fee is 150L but there are now 7 group gifts out for you to pick up, including this amazing tattoo. It includes a fresh, faded, and soft version, as well as system layers, and appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and TMP. You’re bound to find a way to wear this one.

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex 😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new-to-me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe. 🙂

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.
