Stay Hydrated!


Stay Hydrated

It’s hot out there Fab Free, at least in my little spot in the world, which is why I’m here to remind you to stay hydrated! There it is, my good deed for the day. lol While you’re staying hydrated, consider heading over to Uber if you have not already. I’ve been excited by all the cool Uber Birthday freebies Aline has been showing in her recent posts and was just recently able to get into the event myself. For this post, I have more free Uber B-day goodness from Doux, Cazimi, and Riot.

Doux

The free Uber B-day gift from Doux is of course this lovely hairstyle. The style comes in 3 sizes, each with a “boobs” option. It also includes a “Naturals” hair color hud with 12 color choices. There’s no group needed for this free gift, just head over to Uber and click the gift box.

Cazimi

The free gift by Cazimi at Uber includes a cute nail applier set and these pretty gray eyes. the manicure set includes appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and Omega compatible nails. Each applier includes the coral-red color shown, 3 additional colors, and a pretty tropical print. The eyes include a system layer set, appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega compatible eyes, and a set of mesh eyes with a hud to control things like size.

Riot

I love this sweet top with all the kawaii junk food items by Riot. It’s their free Uber B-day gift. This fun tied top comes in the following sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

P.S. I do want to say that one of the many many many free gifts I picked up at Uber did require you to wear the Uber event group tag. However I cannot recall which one! lol sorry. The group is free to join though, so it won’t cost you anything, just a temporary group slot.

Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy

Isn’t it funny how attached we get to our virtual world? Our pets and our friends on the Grid become part of our ‘real’ life as much as they are in our Second Life. At least, I hope it’s not just me…

Beautiful Boy

Jack is sporting a new coat today curtesy of the brilliant Cinnamon and a lucky “J” on the group Lucky Chairs. This is the “Velvet Dapple – Bay” and it’s on the Lucky Chairs for the Cinnamon Group members. As with every Cinnamon design I’ve encountered, this coat is just lovely. The dapples are rich and subtle just like a realistic horse coloration.

The prize comes with the applier for your WaterHorse Riding Horse and your WaterHorse Riding Unicorn. Both sets of hooves are included. If you can’t wait for the Chair to toss up your letter, the entire Velvet Dapples series is for sale at the Cinnamon main store.

Horse Cuddles…

… are some of the best cuddles! And you can get your WaterHorse cuddles with Antaya’s latest free Group Gift for the Vsteed group. I’ve talked about the Vsteed group before and I’ll say again… this is a warm friendly group with tons of info and advice for all things ridable in Second Life.  So let’s talk about Antaya… if you want poses for your WaterHorse Riding horses or the Jinx Centaur… Antaya is a definite Go-To Designer. This pose is scripted into a bale of hay to sit on and is movable by editing that bale. The pose is made for the WaterHorse Riding Horse but I don’t know if it will work with the Riding Unicorn.

Riding Casual

Last but certainly not least is my cute casual shorts and top perfect for a summer day of riding. This is the “Twila” top and the “Tricia” shorts from Shae’s Designs and you can pick them both up for just 10L each at the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale at the Wash. There are eight cool colors for the striped Twila top and eight shades of denim for the Tricia shorts. And at just 10L, you can pick your favorites and not bust the wallet. But you’ll need to hurry… the Sizzlin’ Summer Cart Sale is packing up and leaving town on the 24th!

Horse of Another Color

Horse of another color

Most girls go through that “Horsey” phase. Some of us… never grow out of it.  I remember happily cutting out every picture of horses I found and pasting them in an old photo album when I was a kid. That album was my pride and joy. You know…. now that I think of it, all my horses here in Second Life are kind of like that old album. But these guys are much more fun!

Horse of another color

Good ol’ Jack has a shiny new coat thanks to one of my favorite shops; The Flying Pony. This beautiful ebony coat is “Echo” and I picked it up for free by stalking the Lucky Chairs.  The coat features two hind socks and a little star marking. The build of the coat is just gorgeous and Jack looks amazing. All you need to do is join the free Flying Pony Group and have some patience and a little luck.

“Echo” is available for The Water Horse Riding horse as well as the Teegle Avatar and the Teegle Animesh pet horse. BUT… Echo will only be around for a limited time as a free Lucky Chair prize so don’t delay!!

Me : Do y’all ever look at the “people on line” counter on the splash page while you’re logging in? I do every now and then and it usually says around 40k avis are on the grid. That’s roughly ten times the number of people who lived in my entire town back when I was in high school. Ten Times!  That’s a TON of people all doing Second Life stuff…. all the time.

You: …. Okay. That’s nice, Juli…. um… your point?

Me: Oh, right.  My point is this… With that many people enjoying the Grid… Why am I always shocked to find a New-To-Me event? Cause I found one this week. I was all excited that I had found a brand new start up event… Then I saw that it’s been going on for a while now. So… I guess my point is…. was… The Point is a cool event with loads of free gifts and great designers!

Moving on….

When you join the Point’s group for free, you will be able to take your pick of a bunch of free gifts just for the group. Many of the vendors also have gifts set out; some for free and some for deep discounts. I picked “Loka” a cute casual shorts and racer-back crop top set from Anne’s fashions to show off today, just one of several full outfits on the gift wall. The Point event ends on June 25th so you have a few days to go get your shopping done!

Shorts Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Top Sizes Included

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega
  • Classic Mesh sizes – XXS-L

Adrift

My lovely, wistful new pose is also at an event but this time it’s the Liaison Collaborative. This is “The Shape of Summer” pose and it’s part of Le Poppycock’s new gacha: Shipwrecked. There are fifteen beautiful poses, each one with it’s own props like the gnarled drift wood here. Each play will cost you 69L so you can collect the entire set without too much damage to your wallet.

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Let’s Spill Some Tea


Spill Some Tea

Hello again Fab Free’rs. Thanks as always for being here. I’m here to spill a little tea! okay maybe not “spill tea” exactly, but I am going to serve some tea in reference to how you can get this super sexy bikini and the teapot purse by Fika, along with the bright beautiful Pride tattoo by WitchCraft for next to nothing.

The purse and bikini are part of a group gift Pride package by Fika. I really couldn’t like this adorable bag more, and if it wasn’t cute enough on its own, it comes with 3 bento hold poses. The bikini is every bit as tiny as it looks, but I’m not at all sad about it. I do want to point out that the bikini bottom is very well defined. You’ll see what I mean when you pick it up for yourself and wear it the first time. It comes in several sizes, there is a heart graphic on the front of the bikini bottom that says “Love is Love.” Also, there’s a cute heart shaped cut out in the back. Lastly this Pride Package at Fika also includes a set of bento Pride inspired nails which are not shown. To get your copy of this generous Pride gift you’ll need to join the Fika in-world group which has a one time join fee of 30 linden. Don’t forget to pick up the one or two other group gifts available while you there!

Bikini Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis), eBody Curvy

Manicure Sizes Included: Slink (M,F), Belleza

Next up, the rainbow barcode Pride tattoo is a dollarbie Omega applier tattoo by WitchCraft available to everyone. This tattoo is meant to be unisex so for just 1 linden anyone with an Omega applier compatible body can wear this colorful tattoo and show their Pride. You’ll find it waiting to be picked up at the WitchCraft shop on the wall with the new releases.

Here are the details:

Hair – Magika Group Gift – Please *Originally Shown Here
Head – Catwa – Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Eye Makeup – Veechi – Electro Liner
Chest Tattoo – {WitchCraft} Pride Tattoo – 1L
Bikini & Teapot Purse – Fika – Pride Month Pack – Free Group Gift/Group is 30L to Join

Electric Zoom


Electric

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I had a little time for a quick post and I wanted to share this lovely lace set with you. It’s a Marketplace dollarbie by Zoom. I don’t shop on the Marketplace, nearly as often as I do in-world, but when I do this exactly the type of find I enjoy most. It’s a brand I’m familiar with and doesn’t require me to wear a tag or join a group. Not to mention it really is just 1 linden. The set comes in the black version shown, and an equally pretty white version.

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

Also, if you’re in the market for some new tattoos or facial hair, Mister Razzor has been having a huge sale, and there’s one day left. The sign says the sale is on until Saturday. I’m not sure how much time that really leaves, but if you hurry you can score Omega applier tattoos like the one Pru is showing for just 60 linden each. There are male and female tattoos, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. I’ll cross my fingers that this awesome sale will last through the entire day Saturday.

Here are the details:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney TSS Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Makeup – ~Shiny Stuffs~ CATWA Mei Applier set
Jewelry – ^^Swallow^^ Indira Face Jewellery 0.1
Outfit – zOOm – Silentia Top and Skirt – 1L on the Marketplace
Tattoo – ((Mister Razzor)) Bianca Tattoo – 60L until 6/8/2019

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

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

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Music Raised Me


Music Raised Me
Hey There Fab Free’rs! As always, welcome back to the blog. Today I’ve got a few free group gifts to share with you that I know you’ll love. First, Petite Mort and Oubliette both have some super cute floral chucks as current group gifts. Second, Kibitz has a cool set of “barbed wire” bangles as their Access event group gift. Keep reading for all the info on these great gifts.

Anyone who says you can have too many shoes in Second Life is delusional if you ask me. Lately I’ve been really into stylish casual shoes. These floral chucks by Petite Mort definitely fit that description. They are a free group gift for all “Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP Group” members. The group also happens to free to join. The best part, Oubliette also has a cute pair of skully floral chucks as a group gift that you can pick up for free with the same group tag. I’ll include a photo of those below. These shoes come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet.

Next up, Kibitz has a set of “barbed wire” bangles for free at the Access event. I say “barbed wire” in quotations because they are a lot more elegant looking than could be expected. The metal has an almost brushed look, which in my opinion make them look more like jewelry and a little less sinister. These bracelets are free to all Access event group members, and the group is free to join. Included with the gift is a color change hud that lets you pick from 4 preset metallic colors.

Here are the details:
