Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis), Signature Alice, MeshBody Legacy

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

Sunny Days Ahead

Sunny Days Ahead

Hello there Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got some terrible wanderlust. I’ve also been wanting a reason to dress in something nicer than sweats and oversized t-shirts. Then I realized something, we all have the perfect excuse to dress up if we want to, ourselves. With ourselves as the reason, I have three free gifts to share with you as the how. Varsity and La Perla each have free Stay at Home gifts that match well together. These free posh sunglasses by Veyard complete the look perfectly. You know how this works from here, keep reading for more information and check out the credits at the end.

Varsity

My skirt and cropped top are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Varsity. This cute and classy outfit comes in three sizes, and has a color change hud for the top and the skirt. In the color change huds there are six solid colors for the top and the same six colors for the skirt so you can mix and match. There is no group needed for this free gift.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

La Perla

These cute heels are a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. You’ll find them at La Perla. The black and gold details make them stylish and unique, the red sole makes them timeless.  These pretty shoes come in 5 sizes and should be able to be worn by classic avatars though they do not include a shoe base. Like all Stay at Home gifts, there’s no group required for this freebie.

Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya, Ocacin, Belleza, Standard Mesh L/R

Veyard

Finally, these sunglasses by Veyard were actually the inspiration for my entire look. I love the sleek black shades with the detailed gold floral accents. They are a free gift, no group needed, at the Men and Women Jail event. You can pick them up for free for the duration of the event at the Veyard booth.

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.

Missing all the Things

Missing all the Things

It’s humorous the things you begin to miss once you can no longer do them at your leisure. Hello again Fab Free. It’s day 457 of quarantine, or so it feels at times, and I honestly want to go to the grocery store. There’s something to be said about being able to see what you’re buying before you buy it. Even more to be said for being able to do so without endangering your health in the process. That said, I’ll settle for doing my grocery shopping virtually for now.

My cute outfit for running those not so fun yet somehow missed errands is a free gift by London Girl as part of the Stay at Home Club. My groceries are free as well. They are part of a free pose set by Secret Poses, also in honor of the Stay at Home Club. I’m really quite thankful for these great gifts. The outfit from London Girl has a cropped sweatshirt that reads “Newbs” with the “N” scribbled out and replaced with a “B.” Cheeky, right?! lol The top and the shorts both have a color change hud with a few preset options for you to mix and match. Both the shorts, and the sweatshirt come sized for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya bodies. The free grocery pose pack by Secret Poses comes in a set with 5 poses. Have fun, and stay safe out there!

Comforting Silence

Comforting Silence

At times silence can be comforting. It allows you to pause for a moment and clear your mind. Open a window, feel the breeze, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Letting your mind go blank for a few minutes, in this world of self isolation. There is no better way to be comforted then by wearing something that makes you feel that way.

Comforting Hoodie
The warm, softness of a fleece hoodie, gives you that feeling. Right now you can pick one up for free at the Neo Japan event. Gabriel has put out this black hoodie for both men and women. It is absolutely free, no need to join a group. Just click on it and it’ll be delivered to your inventory. It can be worn solo or with a black or white tank which is also provided in the folder for free. Hop on over to Neo Japan, grab this freebie before the event ends, on April 19th.

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.

Cheesecake Radio

Cheesecake Radio

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.

All Sn@tched Up

All Sn@tched Up

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected if not better. Fishing in Second Life happens to be a great way to pass the time. Especially when you’re fishing for fashion rather than fish! There is a new “Fish4This” outfit at Sn@tch that you can fish for free, all you need is a fishing rod. I’ll tell you all about this fantastic and very versatile set at Sn@tch below, but first I’ll give a little fishing explanation for those who’ve never gone before.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Sn@tch 

When I say this fishable free outfit at Sn@tch is versatile, what I really mean is it’s more like 2 outfits with lots of color choices. The “Done Dirt Cheap” set includes everything you need to complete the look even hair, shoes, and jewelry. As the ad says there are 23 pieces in total. The top, pants, and hair all come in multiple colors. The tattoo has an omega applier and a classic tattoo layer. For the top photo I’m wearing the top in purple, the slither tattoo, the pewter choker, and the skater skirt in black.

Sizes Included for Skirt/Pants/Top: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Volumptuous. Belleza (Isis, Freya Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine). Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

**P.S. The cute Reve Obscura pose I’m using with the book prop included is just 50 linden on the Marketplace!
