Sunny Saturday

Sunny Saturday

You should see my house here on the grid. There’s packing boxes and shopping bags and ribbons and paper… everywhere! Yep you guessed it, I’m still unpacking boxes and bags of free gifts from The Second Life 16th Birthday Celebration. I may never see the floor again!

But at least I look cool

New hair, new jewelry, new clothes…. I may complain about the unpacking, but I do love the presents! First, lets talk about this cute crop top. This is the ‘Ginger’ halter top from Tres Blah. Perfect for summer time, Ginger comes with a HUD to choose one of sixteen colors and patterns for the bra top and eleven colors for the little sheer ‘fringe’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Female
  • SLink – Hourglass

No Kidding…

… I have great new hair! This is the unisex style ‘No Longing’ from No_Match. I love the wrapped headband and all the colors! Not only do you get the full fatpack of colors for the hair, you get a special ‘Ombre’ Hud and a special ‘Unicorn’ Hud too. If that wasn’t enough, you also get two huge HUDs of colors and patterns for the headwrap.

Sweet Shelly

My beach inspired new necklace is ‘Shelly’ from Mon Cheri. I don’t usually go to crazy for jewelry but I love this necklace. You can choose the color and texture of almost every piece. You get a HUD to change the stones, the shells and the metals. I have a feeling this will become a go-to piece in my wardrobe.

Posed and perfect

Last but not least, I need to tell you about the free gifts at Bauhaus Movement. I’m showing one of thirty poses in a convenient pose stand. But to make things even easier, each pose is a separate animation if you can’t rez the stand. Bauhaus ovement has also set out two other gifts so don’t overlook those.

Maybe Daisies


Maybe Daisies

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I’m always happy you’re here. For this post I have three beautiful group gifts to share with you. So rather than my usual banter, I’m going to just dive right in. The first is a lovely set of eyes by Go&See. The second is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by 7 Deadly Skins, and the final gift for this post is pretty little held bouquet of daisies by Sweet Evil.

Go&See put out a full set of eyes, and eye appliers in their group notices. This May group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and appliers for the mesh eyes, Catwa eyes, Lelutka eyes, and Genus eyes. There are 6 eye colors to pick from, and you can color each eye individually. To get your copy of this gift you will need to join the Go&See group which has a one time join fee of 150 linden.

Next, this pretty skin is a free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by 7 Deadly Skins. The gift includes an Omega head and body applier in the taupe tone. To get this gift you’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag and click the rainbow colored Fab Free sign at the 7 Deadly Skins main store. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, join us, the group is always free to join.

Finally, the little daisy bouquet is a free group gift by Sweet Evil. The gift includes a bento hold pose and can be found in the Sweet Evil group notices. At this time the Sweet Evil Group is free to join, so don’t miss out!

Flirty Florals and Spring Ribbons

Sweet Spring

Hey there FabFree! The warm weather I have been having in my part of the real world this weekend, (and when I say warm… I mean +13 Celcius, and after the -30 we have had all winter – this feels like suntanning weather!) inspired me to put on a little spring outfit inworld.  You know me…  I always try to work something free in, and today it’s my shoes and skirt, which I will tell you about below!

Flirty Florals

The Mint Rose Flirty Skirt I am wearing today is available for free in a lucky board at Petite Mort!  You’ll need to be a member of the Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group, however this group is currently free to join.  There are actually four boards, and you can see two of the other prizes previously blogged on FabFree [HERE].

Sizes Included:

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

Spring Ribbons

Previously on FabFree, Aline has told you all about the new group lucky boards at Empire (with a free group join) in her Fly Gal Post [HERE], and while she scored up some sweet bow flats, I won the Lavender ribbon wedges!  You can fully customize these beautiful sandals with a texture change HUD that allows for 20 different colours.  Remember, you’ll need to be in the free to join Empire group to participate in the group lucky boards, not the group with the fee.

Sizes Included:

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

A little trick:  If you have trouble finding a group joiner to pick up a group gift or participate in a group offer such as lucky boards or midnight manias, simply go into edit on the offer board or gift and click on the group it is set to to open up the profile.  It works “most times”.

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Bring on the New Year!

Bring on the New Year

Dear 2017;

I’ve got two words for you: good riddance.

I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, but as years go, you were pretty awful. Honestly, I don’t even think you tried to be good. You got off to a lousy start and then continued to go downhill as the months went on.

I won’t miss you, and I’m not sorry to see you go.

Don’t let the door hit your fanny on your way out. 😛

Onward and Upward

Now that I’ve got that off my chest… let me tell you about the clothes!

With so many amazing gifts in the Women Only Hunt 4, it’s hard to decide where to go first. And with the hunt ending on December 31st, you’ve only got ONE MORE DAY to decide. 😯

So let me help you: if you haven’t picked up this one yet, you want to grab it ASAP.

Hilly Haalan always offers such generous gifts, and this one is no exception. The Sara Trenchcoat Outfit includes following:

  • The trenchcoat, which comes in 2 versions: with and without the scarf. Sizes are for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, with a fitmesh version for classic avatars.
  • The over-the-knee boots, which are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. A standard mesh size is also included.
  • The sunglasses, which include 2 versions: 100% and 20% opaque (I’m wearing the 20%). Both are resizeable with a click.
  • The handbag (attached to the left hand). Texturing on this one is really nice, and it’s resizeable with a click. I love handbags so much, in RL as well as SL, and outfits that include them make my day! ❤

As an accessory, I’ve added the Jingle Cuff bracelet from the Chop Zuey Couture Advent calendar. You’ll find them as the day #12 gift on the group Advent board (there are several gifts for non-members, too!).

Here’s hoping that 2018 is a vast improvement over 2017, and is full of peace, joy, good health, and success for us all! 😀

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

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

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Blah-entine’s Day

Blah-entines

Blah-entine’s Day 

Well Hello! Good to see you Fab Free’rs! We are almost to Valentine’s Day. I hope everyone is prepared! Whether you’re someone who intends to profess her undying love or someone who would rather avoid the holiday dedicated to love all together, Tres Blah has a gift for you. This one is of course just for the ladies, sorry gentlemen. The February group gift at Tres Blah is a set of Valetine’s day inspired mesh t-shirts that will help you express your love or perhaps your apathy toward the up-coming holiday. Each of the 5 tops come in mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Slink Hourglass bodies. I have to say I really like the shape of this mesh. It fit my Maitreya Lara body with my personal shape really well. To get your gift you’ll need to join the Tres Blah group. The group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. The February group gift at Tres Blah is on the top shelf of a set of shelves with several previous group gifts.
Earwings

Cupid’s Ear-Wings

Now I have to tell you, these beautifully unique ear pieces Pru has on are a gift at Swallow for the Le’Homme group members. Carson pointed them out to me a few days ago and I have been eager to share them with all of you. The set is (I believe) unisex. Undoubtedly they are a bit on the fantastical side, however I’ve always enjoyed wearing non-traditional jewelry and accessories with everyday style clothing. The feathery wings on these earpeices from Swallow kinda made me think of Cupid considering Valentine’s Day is so close. The gift is FREE to all Le’Homme group members. The Le’Homme group is FREE to join. While wearing your Le’Homme group tag, just click the gift vendor next to the Swallow group gifts at the Swallow main store. Also, I almost forgot to mention that these earpieces can be sized via a built in touch menu. Don’t miss out on these great gifts!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Her Blahness

Snapshot_004Hello FabFree Readers!  As much as I love red.. and even green on occasion, I am getting a little tired of wearing red and green, and green and red!  I was really happy to find a couple of free gifts that were still holiday themed, but in different colours.  Today… I’m in black, gold and red!

Starting with my boots…

These very well made winter boots by Fri.day are red, black white and gold and are free (priced at 0L) under the giant Christmas Tree at The Arcade.  They are compatible with my Maitreya Lara body (I’m sure they’ll work with whatever you are wearing!), and include an alpha layer for those on the system body too.

My Nutcracker Pants!

I picked up these awesome Nutcracker Pants by Sn@tch for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  These are compatible with system bodies and include an OMEGA applier.  A texture change HUD is included for several different colours, but I went with coal, because it showed the gold nutcracker design down the sides of the legs best. As Kathryn mentioned in a previous post…  if you are trying to stuff your pants into a pair of boots, appliers are really the way to go!
Tres Blah December 2016 Group Gift

Her Blahness

If you like my sweatshirt, you should head on over to Tres Blah and slap on your “Her Blahness” tag above your head to pick up the Olsen Winter Sweatshirt as a free group gift in five different fun prints!  Arrows are my jam, but as you can see from the Tres Blah vendor ad to the left, the other prints are super cute too!

Sizes included:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique

This group will set you  back 100L, but there are several other group gifts to pick up like these [HERE] and [HERE], making it well worth the join fee!
