Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

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.

Summer at Otter Lake

Summer at Otter Lake

Hello Fab Free, happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have been aching for some sunshine and adventure. A few days enjoying the sights and sounds of a coastal town or a lakeside retreat sound heavenly. So I think that’s just what I’ll do! Time to pack up the doggos, throw on something casual and cute, and hit the road.

For this post I picked up a few essentials for my adventure. The scooter complete with the picnic basket full of adorable puppies by 777, as well as my floral bikini and shorts. They are both from Safira. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get all three without breaking the bank. Credits will be at the end like always.

777

This scooter is so detailed, and it is ridable! It comes with a camera hud, and there are tons of options in the scooter’s touch menu. The best part in my opinion? You can have a passenger! That’s right, you don’t have to cruise alone if you don’t want to. There are so many choices for customizing how you ride, as well as fun features like a horn and lights. I could spend this entire post talking about them. I won’t, instead I’ll let you discover them for yourself. This scooter by 777 is just 10 linden on the Marketplace.

Safira 

Safira has so many group gifts it’s almost difficult to keep up with! Not a bad problem to have if you ask me. Their most recent group gift happens to be these summery floral shorts. The shorts come in several sizes and have a texture change hud with 3 equally pretty floral choices, as well as options for the metal bits. Also at Saifra, my bikini top is the top half of an adorable tropical print bikini that is one of the many Safira Lucky Board prizes. The Safira group has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Shorts Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya) 

Bikini Sizes Included:  Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Pandemic Fashion

Staying Safe

Hey there Fab Free, I have to say that with all that is happening in the world, I am thankful for my Second Life. I’m also glad you’re here. While we are all “staying home” did you know that you can find “stay home” gifts on the Marketplace as well as in world? Some are available both in-world, and on the Marketplace. I don’t know about you, but with the higher numbers joining in on Second Life recently, I sometimes find teleporting to be cumbersome. With that in mind I picked up a few “stay home” themed free or inexpensive gifts from the Marketplace to share with you.

Koyuki

Nothing says pandemic fashion like a face mask. There are tons of face mask gifts floating around, this one is from Koyuki. It’s a unisex Marketplace dollarbie that comes in basic black or white with some minor color changes for 9 options in total. I liked that this mask is simple and fit well with some minor resizing/positioning.

:KOYUKI: 1L Mask - Stay home Stay safe

Maryfer

Who doesn’t love a little buffalo plaid now and then? I suppose it could be just me, but somehow I don’t think I’m alone on this. My and black plaid top is a freebie on the Marketplace put out by Maryfer in the spirit of staying home and staying safe. This top is fitted for Maitreya Lara only. There’s also a free men’s version of this top. It too is red and black plaid. The men’s shirt is fully unbuttoned and sized for Signature male body/bodies. There’s no specification as to whether it fits a specific Signature body, or all of them.

Unfazed & Zombie Suicide 

Lastly, the hand sanitizer spray I’m using is a free collaboration between Unfazed and Zombie Suicide. This fun animated freebie worked well with my AO and static poses. The bento animation makes your avatar appear to pull the spray from a pocket, spray hands, replace the sanitizer in a “pocket”, and then rub the sanitizer in. It also has the added option of letting you pick how frequently your avatar will bust out the hand sanitizer. You can get your copy of this free animated hand sanitizer on the Marketplace.

Pink Pru Bunny

Pink Pru Bunny

I think everyone should know that I am seriously considering spending the rest of April in this pink bunny suit. Hello there Fab Free’rs! We are inching toward Easter, which in my opinion yields some of the best holiday candy of all the holidays; second only to Halloween.

Speaking of candy, Andika sent out this sweet pastel striped lollipop out in their notices not too long ago. It has a bento hold pose and the Andika group is free to join. As for my bunny suit, yes, it is every bit as comfortable as it looks. It’s also a free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by Tiar, and it happens to be unisex. The suit comes in blue, and pink with standard mesh sizes for each color. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. The very best part of this blotd (bunny look of the day) are these absolutely adorable socks. They are the Evil Bunny Hunt prize at Atlantis Design. I love the cute bunny face on the top of the socks almost as much as I love the bunny foot prints on the underside. I don’t think my feet have ever been this cute. Happy Hunting!

Bunny Suit Unisex Sizes: Standard Mesh + Alpha Layer

Sock Sizes: Classic (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Belleza (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Slink (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged), Maitreya (Flat, Mid, Non Rigged)

Dapper Bunny

Dapper Bunny

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I hope this day finds you well. I don’t know about you, but I needed to get out of the house, even if it was just in virtual reality. If you’re looking for a way to spend a bit of time, there are several hunts happening around the grid right now.

The Hopping Along Hunt is a dollarbie hunt with 22 total stops, not too long, but still plenty to keep you busy.  The hunt runs from now until the end of April and the prizes appear to be women’s clothing, including shoes and accessories, as well as Easter themed décor. I hunted my dapper bunny tank top at The Bold Llama, and my cute green purse at Loordes of London.

Shirt Sizes Included: Ocacin, Belleza Frey, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Belleza Freya, Matireya Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Ebody, Classic Mesh, Alpha Layer, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique

Hints:

The Bold Llama – “Go left, look up, and remember no one puts Baby in a corner except llamas.” 

Loordes of London – “Look near the hunt poster.”

Perfectly Pastel

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.

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

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
