The Bright Side of the Screen

The Bright Side of the Screen

A lot of us are still all confined to quarters, but staying home doesn’t have to be the punishment so many see it as.  I say, stick on a cool outfit, and make the most of your “me” time.  We always complain that we don’t have enough of it, so though it’s probably not the way we want it to happen…may as well look on the bright side, right?

The Bright Side

One of my fave brands, Secret Oktober are taking part in the Midsummer Enchantment Hunt.  This awesome starry tank (sized for Maitreya bodies) is their hunt gift and it will only set you back 5L.   I am a sucker for anything with stars on it, so this one was right up my alley.  Your hunt item is a masquerade mask that you’ll have to search high and low for on the sim.  You’ve got until July 26th to find all the goodness!

Phone Obsessed

The phone I’m holding is a free gift from OMY  that  you can pick up at La Vie en Pose.  I mentioned the other day that by joining their free group, you’ll gain access to a massive pile of gifts that you’re sure to have lots of fun with.  The phone is super awesome because it’s actually animated!  Your thumb will move up and down the screen as it scrolls through what looks like Flickr posts.  It’s totally like art imitating life…or uh…SL imitating RL?  Either way… I had a good chuckle!  Go pick it up!  It’s free!

Last Minute Weekend Get-a-way

Coming soon to Fab Free

I decided to go on a weekend trip to do some special shopping! Now that I’m back at my hotel, I am trying on all the lovely things I found. SL17B is ending this weekend (July 12th), so it’s your last chance to grab all of the amazing gifts at Second Life’s 17th Anniversary. Today I am showing off three free gifts from the event, and a free lucky letter prize from Selene Creations.

Last chance

Some of my favourite items I collected from SL17B includes the following three free gifts I’m showing off here:

  • A hair fatpack from Sintiklia, includes a style HUD and hair colour hud essentials pack. Pick it up at the Gleaming sim.
  • A free AO from Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language; this is a full-functioning AO and very cute. It includes runs, walks, stands, flying animations and more. Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language AOs are fully Bento and valuable- so this is a great freebie! You can pick it up at Jubilant.
  • This cute dress by Safira which comes in blush, lilac and blue, sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass and Legacy. As all of Safira’s clothes are, it is well-made and adorable. You can grab it at Snowflake.

Darlin’ Darla

In addition to the great gifts at SL17B, I snatched up some awesome gifts and lucky letter prizes over at Selene Creations. Their VIP group is currently free to join for a temporary period. Included with the group join are years’ worth of past free gifts and a huge wall of lucky letter board prizes. I did the boards and walked away with a shopping spreeeee! I am showing the Darla heels from that haul.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and have a fun weekend getaway!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Skin Within

Happy Friday Fab Free Fam! I think the summer is a natural time to make yourself over, if you’re so inclined. Things feel fresh, bright, and new this time of year and I think a lot of us want to feel that way too. I love the infinite ability Second Life gives us to personalize, create, and recreate our individual looks. For this post I’m happy to tell you about a sweet little skin shop called Skin Within.

At Skin Within you’ll find female skins, and eyes to enhance your avatar. What makes this skin shop a little different is that their focus is on Bakes on Mesh (BOM) layer skins. They also offer tattoo layer makeup options, brow choices, and several skin tones. The eyes at Skin Within are Lelutka and Omega appliers.

The Store Group 

Skin Within has a free-to-join store group. Group members will get a 20% discount on purchases made while wearing the group tag. There is also a current free group gift skin. Her name is Mila and she includes BOM layers, and tattoo layer makeup options.

Fab Free Group Gift 

The free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Skin Within is a full set of eye appliers. The set includes 12 “Dreamy” eye choices in Lelutka and Omega appliers. The Fab Free group will always be free to join. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes.

Beach Breezes

Beach Breezes

I sure could have used some ocean breezes today, FabFree.  We are roastin’ here in Texas and it’s only getting hotter by the day.  I think it’s a  perfect day to get on the Hunt for some gear to get down to that beach of my dreams!

Sweet as can be

First up is my “berry” sweet new bikini. This is the “Strawberry Bikini” from Ari-Pari  and you can pick it up for just one little Linden as part of the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. You’ll also get a HUD to change the colors of the pattern and the strings and the ruffle. Each piece of the bikini is separate so you can mix and match to find your perfect fit.

The Black and White

As y’all know, Gabriel has been working his way through the All The Stuff Hunt and he found a great set of free board shorts/sweats that are prefect for the beach. These are the “Travis Shorts” from Tori’s Styles. The pair for the Hunt are all black and white ( and gray) and come with a HUD to change the pattern to one of six choices.

Cuddle Up

Last but not least is this cute beach throw we’re enjoying. This is the “Beach Blanket with Cuddles” from The Rack @ Steaming Ahead. With only a tiny little 4 land impact you could leave this out all the time or anytime you need to snuggle up to your someone special. There are eight different cuddles and each one is cute without being slutty. It can be yours for 1L as another prize for the Summer Lovin’ Hunt.

Don’t let the time get away from you. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt and the All the Stuff Hunt both end on June 30th. So get goin’!

Rocking the Casbah

Rocking the Casbah

Hey Fab Free, I’ve got a story for you. If you’ve ever lived with someone, a roommate, a significant other, a sibling, whomever, you’ve probably walked in on some moments and thought “I wish I had a camera right now.” Well thank you technology, I had one when I walked in on Blue rocking out like there was an episode of Soul Train happening in our Livingroom. Really, it was a little bit Footloose, and a little bit Risky Business, with a dash of Saturday Night Fever complete with mood lighting and a killer stage outfit. So I did what any girlfriend would do, I took photos and posted them on Social Media.

Aside from the good giggle, and a bit of eye-candy, there is a freebie aspect to this post I promise. You too can have your very own Livingroom disco dance party with a little help from the Fab Free Group Gift Listing, and few Stay at Home Club gifts. Stay with me and I’ll tell you about each of them, and like always there will be a full list of credits at the end.

BYRNE

There’s something awesome about a man being confident enough to rock a shimmery chevron suit. The shiny bold jacket and matching pants Blue has on are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by BYRNE. It has all the style and fun of a custom outfit with non of the high-end cost. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag (the group is free to join) and click the gift vendor at BYRNE.

Sizes Included: Belleza, Signature, Slink

Z.O.E.

Our stylish skybox is a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Z.O.E. It’s a great space with detailed natural rock and wood textures that give it a modern cabin sort of feel. I’ve added. the vendor ad below so you can get a better look at it. To get your copy just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Z.O.E.

Casanova Store

Blue’s amazing dance moves are thanks in part to yet another Fab Free group gift. Fabulously Free in SL group members can help themselves to a free disco ball dance animation chimera kit gift at Casanova Store. While not shown in the photo, the disco ball/chimera kit has quite a few preloaded dances, the ability to add your own dances, and is menu driven.

Anna’s Nest 

The cool water feature in the background is not only an awesome conversation piece for any setting, it happens to be free. This is a Stay at Home Club gift by Anna’s Nest. It’s slightly tinted in my photo. The piece is modifiable, allowing you to customize it in some ways to suit your space and style.

Stay at Home Club Gift

The Green Door 

The sofa and chair come from The Green Door, and are part of their free Stay at Home Club gift. The full set includes a natural wood coffee table, and a rug. This set is copy and mod so you can rez out multiples, which I think is important with furniture and décor.

the green door - Stay at Home Club Gift

Myth

Our Livingroom rug is another freebie for Stay at Home Club. This one comes from Myth and comes in a 3 pack of different floor rugs in subtle neutral colors.

Myth - Stay at Home Rugs

Thanks for reading, I hope you have fun with these awesome freebies. Never be afraid to dance, even if it’s by yourself. Also, a special thanks to Blue for the idea in the first place.

Cheshire Cat

Cheshire Cat

It seems I am on a bit of a Wonderland kick lately. Has anyone seen Alice? I’m not entirely sure if this look says “Cheshire Cat” or not, but I had so much fun putting it together, and I felt very Cheshire Cat-like in it. So before I disappear, or perhaps run off to play with the rabbit, I want to tell you more about this sexy fun outfit. Several pieces to this look are free group gifts at GoldSquare, and the detailed tattoo is a free Stay at Home Club gift from This is Wrong. Keep reading for details, and peep the credits at the end.

GoldSquare

I feel the need to start this by saying do not miss these freebies! There are quite a few wardrobe staples for free at GoldSquare at the moment, including this sassy little black dress. If black isn’t your color, it comes in red as well. The GoldSquare group is free to join as well. In addition to this cute dress, the bento stiletto nails I’m wearing, and even my pose are free group gifts are GoldSquare. The nails have a color change hud with 12 solid color choices. I of course went with black. lol The pose is part of the “Lessie” AO, which is one of 3 female AO gifts at GoldSquare. I could go on and on about the several gifts, yes there are more, I took a snapshot you can see below.

Dress Sizes Included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Legacy

Bento Nail Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza

This is Wrong

The tattoo giving me detailed spots and stripes is from This is Wrong. It ‘s their free gift for the “Stay at Home Club.” No group is required for this gift, just click the vendor at This is Wrong. You simply buy this tattoo for zero linden. It comes in a classic tattoo layer, an Omega applier, and a Legacy applier. It should be wearable for classic, BOM, and most regular mesh avatars.

Backyard Zen

Zen

Today is going to be a day of strength in the body and in the mind, or at least that’s what I am telling myself. In need of mental focus and physical activity, I decided to practice a little yoga this morning in my own backyard Zen Garden. You can have your own outdoor zen, and the perfect outfit for your exercises all for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about these fabulous freebies from NAUGHTYbits and Sweet Willows.

NAUGHTYbits 

Can you believe all the amazing free gifts for Stay at Home Club? Every time I look at their listing I see something new that I want. Most recently is this free Zen Yoga Garden gift by NAUGHTYbits. Like all the Stay at Home Club gifts, this one is free, and there’s no group required. The garden is as shown with the cherry blossom tree, potted plants, rocks, and other accessories. Even the Buddha statue is part of the garden. It also comes equipped with several animated poses for meditation, yoga, and Chi Gung.

Sweet Willows 

My yoga attire happens to be the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The pants and cropped top are free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members, however you will need to pay the gift vendor 1 linden then be instantly refunded to have your outfit delivered. The fitness outfit by Sweet Willows comes in several sizes, and has a separate color/texture change hud for the pants and top. The hud has 2 printed fabric options, and 8 solid color options.
