Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Not a Creature Was Stirring...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; or an adorable puppy. I’ve been enjoying all the Christmas things this year, and the latest group gift at JIAN is among my favorites. The side table complete with cocoa, cookies, and not one, not two, but three adorable puppies is just more than I can resist. It also goes quite well with the Reindeer Games Hunt prize at Park Place. I love the details of this arm chair with the holiday pillow and draped blanket. It looks like the perfect spot to curl up for a long winter nap. For more info about each of these fantastic finds keep reading. As always, there is a full list of credits and links at the end. Happy Holidays!

JIAN

As I mentioned above, this side table with the cookies and cocoa, candle, books, glasses, and even the sweet sleeping puppies is a free group gift at JIAN. This gift is highly detailed and has a touch menu that lets you pick from different textures for the puppies, colors for the blanket they are snuggled up on, and change the lighting effect of the candle. The JIAN group also happens to be free to join at this time.

Park Place

Park Place is participating in the Reindeer Games Hunt happening now. The RGH is a dollarbie hunt with a twist. If you don’t feel like hunting, no problem! The hunt prize is also for sale along side the hunt poster at the participating store for 25 linden. Otherwise, if you’re up for the challenge you can hunt the prize and pay just 1 linden for it once you’ve found it. The prize at Park Place is this nicely crafted arm chair. It includes several male and female sit poses, along with several PG couples poses. Don’t miss this great dollarbie, the hunt ends December 31st.

Hint “Think I’ll just sit at my desk and finish my letter to Santa.”

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!

Bonita

Bonita

Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are nearing the end of November already? I could have sworn Halloween was only a week ago. Speaking of the end of the month, it also is the end of the November Hunt. This is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. I picked up the November hunt prize at The Bold Llama. I also made sure to pick up the latest group gift at e.marie. Keep reading for more information about these awesome finds.

November Hunt at The Bold Llama

As I mentioned above, The Bold Llama is participating in the November Hunt. This 1 linden hunt lasts until November 30th, so you’ve got a little time to get hunting. The prize is this cute tank top. I couldn’t resist the colorful eyes. The best part? It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suited for mesh avatars and classic system avatars.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Ocacin, EBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara

Hint – “Go on be Bold”

e.marie

I’m never disappointed in the group gifts at e.marie. The necklace I am wearing is the latest group gift at e.marie, and I love it. It’s a simple chain with the word “Bonita” in fancy lettering. Just incase you didn’t know, bonita means pretty in Spanish. With the gift you’ll get a hud with 6 options for the metal colors, resizing, full bright on/off, and materials on/off. The e.marie group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden.

Happy 10th Anniversary Essences!


Happy Anniversary Essences

If I had to choose a favorite skin shop in Second Life I’d without hesitation choose Essences as m personal favorite. There are lots of amazing skins in SL. Still, Essences has for many years been the source of the skins I wear the most. Recently Essences celebrated 10 years in Second Life. In celebration their in world VIP group and the Essences Newsletter group are both temporarily free to join. There are also 3 new fat-pack Newsletter group gift head appliers.

Each of the 3 Essences appliers is for a different mesh head. There is one for Catwa, one for Genus, and one for Lelutka heads. These free gifts come with a head applier in each of the available skin tones with a light brow, dark brow, or no brow option. Don’t have the body applier to go with these gorgeous new skins? No problem. The body appliers are just 1 linden per mesh body type. I’m wearing the “Sybil” gift applier for the Catwa heads in the above photo. This applier was made with the Catwa Catya head, however I think she’s quite pretty on my Catwa Koura head. To get your copy of these absolutely beautiful free gifts make your way to Essences, join the free-to-join Essences Newsletter group, and click the gift vendors.

Southern Summer


Summer Romance

Sometimes I wish southern summer evenings were really as they are often described in books or depicted in movies. The reality is far less pleasant. One more thing to enjoy about Second Life, summer evenings are every bit as pleasant as you want them to be. I got caught up in the sexy yet romantic look of this dollarbie romper from La Perla and settled into an evening picnic complete with mulled wine and sweets. Hopefully my inamorato will join me soon for a romantic evening rendezvous. For now keep reading for info about this pretty dollarbie find at La Perla, or scroll down for the credits.

La Perla

It’s been a while since I came across something pretty and lacy to share with you. Needless to say this “bridal bodysuit” by La Perla quickly caught my eye. It’s just 1 linden, with no need to join a group of any kind. The bodysuit/romper comes in white only. You’ll find this pretty dollarbie waiting on the second floor of the La Perla store.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink (Physique, Hourlgass)

The BBH prizes are just 1 linden, and this one includes the ruffled bikini I’m wearing and the transparent pink tote bag. The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

  • Bikini Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Bubble Gum – Pink Fuel Bubble Gum
Bikini – [Glitzz] Glenda Bikini – Pride Gift – 0L Free Gift
Tattoo – {WitchCraft} Whisper tattoo
Socks – *1*Tsutsujiya Overknee World – Striped Sky-blue/White Overknee Socks – 1L on the Marketplace
Skates – N00055 – Roller Skates – 49L on the Marketplace

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
