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.

Let’s do Brunch

Brunch

Hello Fab Free! Two things I thoroughly enjoy are brunch, and freebies. So for this post I decided to combine the two. I picked up a new group gift tattoo by Carol G, and the Fab Free group gift at Revelation. Also, the Carol G group changed, and is free to join for a very limited time, so sit back, enjoy some waffles, and read on. Credits will, as always, be listed at the end.

Carol G

You may have read or heard that Carol G made a new store group recently. Carol G has also stated that the new group will be free to join for a L I M I T E D time to give everyone enough time to switch from the original group to the new one. You know what that means? You got it, free group gifts with no join fees! The upper body tattoo I am wearing is a recent group gift that can be found at the Carol G shop located on the Scandalize sim only. This gift will not be available at the Carol G main store. Also, it can be worn by mesh and classic non-mesh avatars!

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic Tattoo Layers, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Omega Applier, Legacy Applier, Maitreya Applier

Revelation

Have you checked out the Fab Free Group Gift List lately? If you haven’t, you need to. There’s a ton of fabulous new gifts in there! I picked up this ruffled top and skirt outfit at Revelation for free with my Fab Free group tag. This free outfit comes in several sizes, and has a color/texture change hud that lets you customize different parts of the top and skirt. The skirt has solid color options, and a few cute patterns, while the top has solid color choices only. To get your free outfit head over to Revelation and look for the “Group Gift” wall that has several packages set out in front of it. The black/dark grey package in the front row is the Fab Free gift, just click it while wearing your Fab Free tag and the outfit will be sent to you. Also, if you’re not a Fab Free member, you can join for free by clicking the Fab Free sign on the wall at Revelation.

Be Mine Valentine

Be Mine Valentine

Valentine’s Day what? Hey Fab Free, who says you gotta wait for Valentine’s Day for some romance? I say why not take advantage of all the sexy and romantic Valentine’s Day themed freebies and cheapies out there and make some memories. This saucy heart printed nighty is the February group gift at Chic Moda. I also picked up this sweet Valentine’s themed champagne bucket set by Follow Us on the Marketplace. After all, what would a romantic evening be without a little bubbly? Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and you can peep the credits at the end.

Chic Moda

I think this little nighty by Chic Moda is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. It also happens to be a recent group gift. I love the little red hearts. They are perfect for the up-coming holiday. This sultry little number comes in multiple sizes, and has a hud that allows you to hide or show the built in panties. The Chic Moda has a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy

Follow Us

Champagne is almost mandatory for Valentines Day. This set by Follow Us is just 29 linden on the Marketplace for a limited time. I especially like that this champagne bucket has The Beatles lyrics “All you need is love, Love is all you need” scrawled across it in pretty lettering. The bucket is not only decorative, it acts as a dispenser as well. The glasses have an animated hold pose. Also, there are rez-able decorative glasses.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

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

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza
