Love Story

FabFree Post: Love Story

It’s a classic Love Story

Once upon a time, a girl logs on SL and gets loads of free gifts (the end) from the SL17B Shop & Hop SLife is great today! I popped in the sim and was again in a complete loss for words at the number of shops, sales, and gifts. I laced up my walking shoes and went about collecting some of the free amazing items I will tell you all about in this post.

But first, let me tell you about the group gift Candy Kitten VIP gift out right now! The Superstar Dress made me feel like a modern-day Juliet.  With 12 color options it is easy to find one that will match your mood. Each option is a colored version of a cute floral pattern that perfectly matched the early summer feel going on. So if you aren’t a member of the group, there is a fee of L$400 but I can tell you that I have received a LOT of group gifts that have personally made up for the fee in the last 6 months alone!

Superstar Dress Fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Though you can barely see my nails in this shot, I have to give a mention to alakametro<3 for their as always amazing nail appliers, which are free for you to run by and snag at the SL17B Shop & Hop Event! The gift includes a Maitreya Manicure, Maitreya Pedicure, and Omega Applier version.

Second Life birthday gift

It’s all about the Hair

All good love stories just NEED a Strong Woman with AMAZING hair! Doux delivered 110% without fail! This amazing free hair is also at the SL17B Shop & Hop and is a MUST snag while there! Coming with various sizes and color huds there is no way you cannot find one that matches your romantic mood.

Color Huds:

  • Black & Whites
  • Blondes
  • Brunettes
  • Fades
  • Naturals
  • Pastels & Ombre
  • Reds

A rose is a rose…

By any other name, would it be as sweet if it was free like the adorable Flowerpots from Astralia?! I don’t think so! I am in love with them and the moment I put them out I knew I was going to keep them up as deco (for as long as I keep THIS house up) for my romantic balcony. This free gift is again another item from the SL17B Shop & Hop (Have I convinced you to dedicate time to get in yet?) the flowers look like they were painted with watercolors to show some beautiful rainbow hues for your eyes to swoon over.  The free gift comes with two options, with and without metal – this is so you can either attach to your house or the railing.

Last by not least the final free gift I have to share with you in this blog is the confetti, it comes from Dahlia and again another amazing item from the SL17B Shop & Hop Event. (no seriously get those tp hammers going!) Inside the box, there are three color options (colorful, Halo, and Rose Gold) with two shape options, a circle and for those who want to be cooler, a square 😉 *pun intended* So why are you still reading? Get going and snag your gifts before the birthday bash ends!

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

FabFree: Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

Hey there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but during the hectic holidays I think it’s a good idea to create a little hideaway from everyone else just for little breaks here and there.  I have created one in SL too, although I am not sure what I am hiding from here!  There is a lot of fun and free stuff in this picture on my avatar, and around it, and I’ll do my best not to get too wordy below and keep it to the point as well as make sure I add in direct TPs to those Shop & Hop locations ;).

My Holiday Look:

  • My outfit today is put together using the Caroline Plaid Skirt in Red that you can pick up at Safira under the Christmas Tree with your group tag activation (50L to join).  It also comes with a chain and leather belt, however, I attached a cat and it fell off…
  • I have paired it up with the Evie Glitter Top available at Shop & Hop as a free gift.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to match the sparkles to whatever you are wearing, and they do… indeed sparkle!
  • My necklace is Cae’s Bauble Necklace and it comes with earrings too and a texture change HUD too.  You can find this at Shop & Hop as a free gift.
  • I’ve got Alaskametro’s Shop & Hop Gift –  Time Square Eyeshadow on my eyes, and it comes in several different colours.  My lipstick has been blogged before, but it’s a free tester called Crimson at the Alaskametro store too, in case you are interested.

 Top Secret Hideaway Corner:

I started this little corner with the Mean Pillows by Lybra available for purchase at Santa Inc. because they cracked me up with sayings like “For Christmas I wish you the best… alone time” and “Christmas is where you are… not”.  After I had those all settled, I added a couple of free gifts and of course the cat and a stack of books:

  • {what next} Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake – Comes with both the cake and the single serving plate decor. – @ Shop & Hop Here
  • Schadenfreude Ornaments in Kore Pedestal Bowl  – Comes with texture options. – @ Shop & Hop Here

After that… all that was left was to hide in it 😀

Bein’ a Little Bit Extra, Poolside


Bein' Extra at the Pool

Hi Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in need of a pool day for weeks. Second Life to the rescue! Of course, no pool day of mine would be complete without my sweetheart. He’s the best, and he still think’s I’m pretty cute even when I’m bein’ a little extra at the pool! haha We both managed to find some great sales, and a few summer freebies to share with you as well. Keep reading for all the details.

Playfulness aside, this sweet poolside pose is part of a current sale happening at Ardent Poses. The sale ends in just a few days on April 15th, and all the sale items including couples poses, and individual pose packs are marked just 65 linden. You don’t need to wear a specific group tag, just head over to Ardent Poses and shop these fabulous bargains!

MonoKini

Speaking of sales, Beautiful Hustler is also having a big sale. Their entire second floor is marked down. Pru’s sexy mono-kini is one of the sale items marked at just 75 linden. Most of the sale items are priced at 75 linden. You’ll find a little bit of everything including lingerie, swimwear, and dresses. This bikini comes in 3 mesh sizes (Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass), and is every bit as cute from the back as it is from the front, maybe even cuter. There are also other colors available. This sale ends on April 15th, so do not wait! Also, you can wear your Beautiful Hustler group tag, (the group is free to join) and score credit toward future purchases while you shop.

My guy Blue also happens to be sporting a few summer freebies! You can pick up his hairbase hairstyle at Volkstone. This perfect-for-summer style is called “Maick”, and it is a free group gift. The group is also free to join. This freebie comes in mesh head appliers for Catwa heads, and Omega compatible heads.
Remmy Shorts

Additionally, his swim shorts are a free group gift version of the Remy shorts by Matova for the Gallant Magazine group members. The Gallant Magazine group is also free to join. Please note that only the special edition version is included in this gift. The above ad is just to give you a better look at the style. The swim trunks/undwear (SL is versatile like that!) come fitted for the Aesthetic male body, Belleza Jake, and Signature Gianni. I’m not sure how long these men’s gifts will be available, so don’t wait on them either!

{what next} Summer Drinks for SL15B

Lastly, the cute pineapple drink Pru is holding in the top photo is part of a free set of summer drinks by What Next that you can find on the Marketplace. It comes with each drink pictured in 2 sizes, and a drink dispenser in each of the shapes. The drinks have hold poses with a drinking animation. To use them as a photo prop, I just rez’d one to the ground and positioned it in Pru’s hands.

Here are the details!

Coffee and Punkin

Coffee and Punkin

I think it’s the rain. It’s raining and really cold here in the RL and I have no motivation.  Maybe some caffeine will help…

Or Maybe A LBD that’s Super cute

I can always count on Hunts and cute stuff to put me in a better mood. This is Kawaii Dolls ‘Punkin’ dress from Sasheba’s Closet and it’s the 1L prize for the Psycho Pumpkin Hunt. Punkin comes with HUDs for six different sweater types and eight different faux fur fringes. While Punkin is a dress… it’s very sassy short so I think it could be a great tunic top too! While you’re looking for that little frosted cupcake, check out the other Hunts going on at Sasheba’s Closet.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh Fitted
  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Pool Side

Pool Side
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m glad you’re here. This cute little pup and I have been having some fun by the pool. Being pools side gave me the perfect excuse to wear this cute little outfit from Tiar. It’s one of the many current Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. I also picked up this cute upper-body tattoo by Primal on the Marketplace after Love pointed it out to me. I really like the freckle-like hearts. I hope you enjoy these fabulous freebies!

The Outfit – This cute little two-piece is perfect for lounging by the pool or walking along the beach. It comes in several mesh sizes and is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. You can pick it up at Tiar while wearing your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. At the Tiar landing point you can take the teleporter to the gifts area, or just head strait to the back of the store. This Fab Free gift along with a gift for the guys is waiting with the Tiar group gift, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Tattoo – I really like that this tattoo by Primal gives you little hearts across your chest and shoulders, as well as on your hands. I think it’s a very dainty tattoo. It is free on the Marketplace. With this free gift you’ll get Omega appliers and classic system layers in Faded, Normal, and Fresh options. The system layers make this tattoo suitable for classic avatars as well as mesh.

P.S. Two of the pool-side props are Marketplace freebies/cheapies I wanted to let you in on as well. I’ll link them in the credits with their cost so you can pick them up as well!

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

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

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.

Al Fresco

Fresco

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m dining “al fresco” today with some free home and garden finds from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I also threw in a few fun group gifts for good measure. 🙂

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the top photo:

  • Roawenwood – Farmhouse Rustic Dining Table & Chairs, Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread
  • Apple Fall – Argentinian Malbec and Wine Glasses (included, not shown: a decanter of whiskey)

Group gifts in the top photo:

  • RaindaleWall Clock, Candlesticks, Tangerine Cake, and the Winter Rug
  • The Little BranchGolden Birch Trees (left side of photo; the tree with the white trunk)

The trees from The Little Branch are really lovely. They’re animated – meaning they gently sway in the virtual breeze – and you can click to change them with the seasons. Also in the folder is a little mesh hill, and the Buffalo Grass shown here (green and winter versions for both are included).
