Perfectly Pastel

Hey there Fab Free, I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes self care includes a little romance. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking anything tawdry. I mean ambiance, atmosphere, create a place where you feel peaceful, pampered, and can relax. I put on a pretty but comfortable pajama set, lit some candles, and found a soft squishy pillow to snuggle. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, especially during these trying times.

To create my romantic atmosphere I picked up the free Dreamland Designs gift at Gachaland. The Dreamland Designs gift is this beautiful display of lit candles, pink flowers, and petals. The display also has a lovely particle effect to add to the romantic vibes. This squishy pillow by Pillows I’m holding is another free gift at Gachaland. It has a bento hold pose which also worked nicely with my AO. Lastly, my anime-esque girly pink pigtail hairstyle is a free gift at Gachaland by Ayasha. It comes in the single pastel pink color shown. The Gachaland event group is free to join, and you’ll need the group tag to get these and several other free gifts. Just look for the gift boxes (most of them are purple) outside the booths at the Gachaland event.

Hello There Fab Free, I trust we are all staying safe at home as much as we can. Speaking of staying at home, the Second Life Stay at Home Club has been a bright spot in otherwise dark times. I’m thankful we can all socialize and spend time together in SL while we are being socially distant in RL. I’m equally excited to be able to share with you more amazing freebies thanks to the generosity of so many designers in Second Life. Today’s post features gifts from Normandy and Hilted.

Normandy

The striped jumpsuit I’m wearing is the free “Stay at Home” gift from Normandy. It fits like a glove. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the beach, workout, whatever, you’ll look amazing. It comes with a color change hud that lets you change the jumper’s main color, and the color of the straps/hem.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Legacy

Hilted

Let’s get lit-up. The free “Stay at Home” gift from Hilted is this industrial style futuristic furniture sit with vibrant blue neon lighting. The set includes a chair, sofa, table, and tabletop décor. All the pieces are copy/mod, so you can rez multiples. I know my photo is dark, but I wanted to show how this furniture really glows. I feel like this could be part of so many cool settings. A million possibilities come to mind. Don’t miss out on this striking furniture set at Hilted.

Home Alone

Time Alone

Hi hi hello Fab Free! I sometimes forget about things I have in my inventory. A silver lining to the extra time I have, and so many of us now have, is that I find the things I’d forgotten in my own inventory. Go ahead and laugh, it is comical! I was genuinely excited to find this fun little nail file set by Besom. The files were a past Fifty Linden Friday or some such sale item that I’d purchased and promptly let drown in the abyss of my inventory. Finding them got me wondering if this fun animated item was still available.

I teleported over to Besom and found it right away. The best part? It’s still just 50 linden! Not only that, but there were 3 other previous sale items still available at their sale price waiting just inside the entrance to Besom. Needless to say, the set of fuzzy ears came home with me. Excited about my Besom finds, I remembered Aline telling me that Sass had a new group gift out. My tied top and matching undies are really cute, and not far off from what I prefer to wear when stuck at home alone.

The Besom Nail Files come in a set of 5 or so file boards with a full bento animated hold. The animation even worked with my AO. The set is just 50 linden, no group needed. The ears were just too cute to pass up, there are several ear types including the blue bear ears I am wearing. The full set is also 50 linden also at Besom.

My “quarantine outfit” is the March group gift at Sass. There is a one time join fee of just 10 linden for the Sass group, and there are a few group gifts available. This gift includes the top and panties in the color shown. Long story short, even in Second Life this is how I’m spending my quarantine, safe at home, no pants, delighted by things I’d forgotten I had!

Sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

That Cabin Life

That Cabin Life

Hey Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Did you know there’s a Toilet Roll Hunt happening at Dench Designs? There’s also two new freebies out at Trompe Loeil as part of the “Stay at Home” campaign. I’m super excited to tell you all about these awesome freebies, so keep reading!

Dench Designs

Toilet paper is a hot topic right now, for a number of reasons that no one wants to discuss here. However, to help lighten the mood and give us all a little something to do Dench Designs put together a free Toilet Roll Hunt. There are 10 toilet paper rolls hidden throughout the store. Each roll is free and contains a furniture or décor gift. Once you’ve teleported to Dench Designs, click the TP Hunt sign for a notecard with hints to the location of all 10 TP rolls. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Trompe Loeil

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the “Stay at Home” gifts popping up all over the grid. Trompe Loeil has continued their participation and has two new gifts out for free in honor of staying at home. This week the free gifts at Trompe Loeil are a highly detailed A-frame cabin and a set of camp chairs with PG poses. All you need to do to pick up these awesomely generous gifts is head over to Trompe Loeil and purchase them for zero linden.

Hi Fab Free, question, is it still called breakfast if it’s not morning? I don’t know about you, but I could eat bacon, sausage, and eggs any time of day. Add some fresh fruit to the mix and that makes it perfect. This scrumptious looking meal, and my tied tee are both available at The Cart Sale priced too fabulously to pass them up. Keep reading for all the delicious details, and check the end for full credits. Lastly, enjoy your breakfast! 😛

Dark Knight Décor 

My mouth-watering meal including the coffee and cutlery are from Dark Knight Decor’s booth at The Cart Sale. Along with this traditional breakfast, there are a handful of other equally detailed food items. There’s also a few kitchen décor bits and bobs to be had. The breakfast set I picked up is just 25 linden, and will look fantastic on your table, or balanced on the arm of your seaside chair.

Dark Water Designs 

An iconic warm weather wardrobe stable has to be a tied tee. This baby blue and white top by Dark Water Designs is also available at The Cart Sale. There are several spring-like shades available for 25 linden each. These tops are not only cute, they come in several sizes, and have an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (V1, V2), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Music makes everything better, even cheesecake. 

Hello hello Fab Free, and thank you for being here. Have you checked out the Fab Free Group Gift listing lately? There are so many recent gifts, if it’s been a minute since you checked it out it might be time to give it a look. I picked up this comfy colorful tunic at Northern Sky Creations for free with my Fab Free group tag. Casual look handled, today feels like a lazy indulgent sort of day. The kind of day that requires cheesecake. Andika has this almost too pretty to eat cheesecake as their most recent group gift. I’ll tell you all about each of these free gifts, and list full credits at the end while I listen to some music.

Northern Sky Creations 

This loose flowy tunic is a free gift at Northern Sky Creations for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. As I am sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join. This colorful top comes in several sizes and has an alpha layer to make it suitable for non-mesh avatars, and we love that.

Sizes Included: Fitmesh (s-L) + Alpha Layer, Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Venus, Freya), Fitmesh Voluptuous, Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Andika

Cheesecake has to be my favorite of all the sweet things. Andika has this beautiful, deliciously detailed NY Cheesecake Dispenser Set as a free group gift. The Andika group is also free to join at this time. This set comes with 2 plated cheesecake dispensers, a decorative cake, and a set of decorative plates for a mouth-watering table setting. The dispensers give out a held plate with a slice of cheesecake, and an animated fork. I’ve added the ad for this set below so you can see the additional pieces of this gift that are not included in my photo.

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

Hey Fab Free! Did you know that the Steam Hunt is going on right now? It is a super fun hunt which on for the whole month of March. It is one of the longest-running hunts in SL and it’s also the only steampunk-themed hunt left on the grid. Yesterday I did some hunting at the Steam Expo, where there is a sim-wide hunt game. All of the free décor gifts shown here are hunt prizes you can get from this gear hunt game.

The Gear Game

The Steam Hunt/Expo’s gear hunt game is really fun! What you do is teleport to the start location of the hunt where you will grab a gear games HUD on the wall. Unpack the HUD and attach it to your screen. Now you will run around all over the expo sim and look for the bronze coloured gears, and click them with your HUD on. The bronze or copper-coloured gears will give you points, and if you click silver gears that will take away your points- so don’t click the silver ones! The gears just pop up randomly, so look all around!  You want to accumulate as many points as you can and you can check your point count on the HUD.

Points for Prizes

Once you have lots of points, you can exchange them for prizes. Each prize costs from 1 to 30 points each, and it is quite easy to win enough points to get all the prizes around the sim. In different creators’ booths around the sim, there will be writing in yellow over the prizes which states how many points each one costs. The HUD and the game is completely free to play, so whatever prizes you get will be a free addition to your inventory. There are 35 prizes in total that I could find.

Steam Hunt XV Store-Wide Hunt

Note that the gears game hunt is a sim-wide hunt in addition to their grid-wide hunt. The gears game hunt featured in this blog post is part of the hunt, but they have a larger grid-wide hunt too! So there are basically two hunts part of the Steam XV Expo/Hunt event this month. If you want to do their grid-wide hunt please visit the Historical Hunt Ltd. website for a list of stores. The hunt prizes are available to find until March 31st. The grid-wide hunt is also a 0L, completely free hunt.

Have fun hunting, Fab Free!
