Good evening FabFree Readers!  Ecce Bellus has a sweet new group gift for their inworld group members that is perfect for the upcoming independence day.  I am actually Canadian, and will be celebrating Canada Day on July 1st, but I sure don’t mind celebrating with my American friends on the 4th too.  🙂

Just a Canimal

Just a Canimal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has been having a good week so far. I am super stoked about sharing the current group gift at Canimal with you. I had another one of those “I must have that” moments when I saw the ad for it. The Cannimal gift is this blouse and bodysuit combo. So many style genres come to mind with this FREE Canimal group gift, which is partly why I love it. This outfit/top is one piece, and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the bodysuit, blouse, collar, and bow separately. It comes in a single mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly. The Canimal group is FREE to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift vendor to get your gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pretty Posies

Sweet Floral
Oh Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very girly today, princess-like even thanks to this pretty floral dress and matching shoes from NSP Florals. The gifts at NSP Florals have always been generous, so I was not at all surprised to see that the shoes came with this beautiful pink dress. I can’t help but imagine a romantic date on a warm summer evening dancing and laughing in this dress. I also love the added detail of the straps on the bodice.  The NSP Florals group has a one time join fee of 125 lindens. In addition to this June group gift, there are group only lucky letters, and you can purchase a few of the previous group gifts for just 5 lindens each.

WOH3 Goes to the Beach

Beach DayHello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
WOH
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty

Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.

Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.

Sizes Included: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

G L O R I A

VeronicaHello There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend was a fun one. I had a fantastic weekend, and now I’m happy to be here where I get to share my latest freebie find with you. The credit for this find should really go to Love however. She spotted the outfit at Sn@tch during one of her recent shopping excursions and told me about it. She knows me so well! I do love retro pinup styles, especially when they are a little sassy like this one.

Why be a Betty When You Can be a Veronica? 

Okay so really I think Betty was just as awesome as Veronica, and Archie was lucky either of them paid him any attention! This outfit just screamed Veronica to me, even though it’s name is Gloria. Before I go off on a tangent about the dynamics of the Betty, Veronica, Archie love triangle and confuse everyone further, I’ll just get to the details. The fully mesh Gloria outfit is absolutely FREE at Sn@tch. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag, just head over to  Sn@tch and check out the FREEbie area Love mentioned in her recent post “A Whole New Sn@tch“. In the box you’ll get the capri pants, the cardigan, and a cardigan/tank top combo in 5 standard mesh sizes, and of course the matching alpha layers. Additionally the cardigan/tank combo comes with the tank top in black or red. Sn@tch your FREE outfit, and tons of other fantastic freebies and inexpensive items at the new Sn@tch main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. 😎

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ❤

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame). 😳

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. 😀

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cynful Cereal Killer

Cereal KillerHello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.

Anxiety Group Gift Choker 

The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.

Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress

Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tell Me About It, Stud

Tell Me About ItHello There Fab Free’rs, I hope it’s obvious that Pru is channeling a little Olivia Newton -John circa the 1978 version of Grease. As I was trying things on and putting this look together my mind went right to Sandy’s post makeover look. I can just hear Sandy saying “Tell me about it, Stud.” while Danny Zuko struggled to handle her sexy new look! Needless to say, I had some fun with this one, and I hope you like it.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, where’d I get most of this stuff!? Thanks to one of the photos in our Fabulously Free in SL Flickr group, I found out about an event called Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow. To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the event other than there were a lot of colorful items and most of the vendors had at least one gift out, some had several. Each gift ranged in cost from FREE to as much as 10 lindens, most gifts I saw were set at 5 lindens. Leave it to me to find the least colorful gifts to show, what can I say I’m a sucker for black! I also picked up a recent gift by LIVIA from the Marketplace because I needed to have some gorgeous red lips to finish the look.
Better Shape UpStarting with the top rather than from the top, this black and gold bodysuit is one of many gifts at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event. The gift is from a shop called Alpha Female. It includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and classic system layers for non mesh avatars. I am not always a big fan of applier clothing, however this bodysuit is really well done. I think the textures are beautiful. This gift is just 5 lindens, no group needed.

Next up, this boho bangle is from a shop called Shake, and you’ll find it at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event as well. This gift is a FREE one with no need for a group. The bracelet is able to be resized via touch menu. I love the detail in this piece of jewelry, if you look close, it has what looks to me like a cat face in the center of the design. I’m not sure if that was intentional or a happy accident, either way it makes me like it even more.

The last of the gifts from the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event that I intend to show are these super sexy high-waist skinny pants from Hi-lo. They are also just 5 lindens. I love these pants. They are one of those staple wardrobe items, everyone should own a pair. The style is timeless, and they are great with a wide variety of tops from sweaters to crops. This 5 linden gift comes in fitmesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies.

Finally, because this look just wouldn’t be complete without some sultry red lipstick, LIVIA recently put out a set of gorgeous glittery lipsticks on the Marketplace. The Fall Shimmer set includes 5 shades of sparkly lipstick that range in color from gold to red. They are perfect fall shades. For just 5 lindens you get this set in classic system layers, a Catwa applier, a Fiore applier, a Lelutka applier, and an Omega applier. This is a generous gift well worth the 5 lindens, however you can also get this gift for FREE! If you’re not lazy like I am, you can head over to the LIVIA in-world location and pick up this gift for FREE with your LIVIA group tag. The LIVIA group is FREE to join.
