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!

Be Sweet

Sweet

Hello Fab Free! I’m sorry to have been away so long, that ever persistent Real Life thing has been quite demanding. Needless to say I’m happy to be here and blogging again! The Candyland 2 event recently started and there are a lot of fun freebies to be had. I picked up the free event gift buy Kawaii Couture and the one from The Bold Llama. The gifts at the Candyland 2 event require the free-to-join Evil Bunny Hunt group. Keep reading for details about each of these sweet gifts. Credits are listed at the end like always.

Kawaii Couture 

I think if there was a comfort food desert milk and cookies might be one of mine. A self proclaimed sugar addict, I couldn’t resist these sweet treats from Kawaii Couture at Candyland 2. The milk bottle and heart shaped cookies are their free Candyland 2 event gifts. The held treats have bento hold poses.

The Bold Llama 

My tank top is the free Candyland 2 gift by The Bold Llama. With the word “sweet” followed by a winky-face, this top is perfect for my fellow sugar junkies, or just to let people know that like me, you too can be sweet when you want to. 😛 Whatever the message is sweet, and this shirt is too cute to pass up, especially for free.

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

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
Rapine TaTToo [CAROL G]

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. Pick yours up on the Marketplace while this great price is still available.

Hugs and Kisses

Good evenin’, FabFree! I hope the start to your weekend is going well. My Saturday has started out wonderfully with a gorgeous free new gown from Virtual Diva that was just calling my name.

Seeing Red

Well, it wasn’t quite calling “Julianna” but the Lucky Board with the beautiful ‘Glory Gown’ DID have a big ol’ J on it so I had to snap it up. And I’m so glad I did. This gown is a stunner. Just look at that shine! The Virtual Diva’s group is free to join and that will give you access to a whole bunch of Lucky Boards and to the several Group Gifts available. So get on over and grab your own head turning gown! Oh, I almost forgot… while you’re there, check out the awesome in-store hunt for some other amazing gowns and outfits!

Sweeter Than Sweet

Sweeter Than Sweet

Alright, I’ll admit it, I’m almost as big a sucker for sweets as I am for freebies, which makes this time of year particularly dangerous. Hi there Fab Free’rs, I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of more or less Valentine’s Day themed goodies to be had around the grid. I’ve been sneaking some pre-Valentine’s Day chocolates while wearing the latest group gift from Boubouki and the gorgeous Saturday Sale offer from Cae. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and the credits will be listed at the end as always.

Cae

I’m starting with the Saturday Sale item at Cae because it’s of course a limited time offer. This gorgeous “Ayana” jewelry set is just 75 linden. The vendor will also allow you to send this necklace and earrings set as a gift. The earrings and necklace are both able to be sized via touch menu and there is a color change hud. The hud lets you pick from several beautiful presets for the gemstones as well as the metal parts of the jewelry.

Boubouki

As I mentioned above, my pretty red crop top is a free group gift at Boubouki. At this time the Boubouki group is free to join and there are 2 group gifts available. This red top has some pretty red detailing at the bottom hem, which I completely failed to show in my photo (sorry!) and comes in several sizes. To get yours you’ll need to go to Boubouki and join the free-to-join group, then pay the gift vendor 1 linden, you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden, and your gift will be delivered to you.

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

Hopeful Romantic

Hopeful Romantic

I often hear the phrase “Hopeless Romantic” and this time of year, when we are nearing Valentine’s Day I would rather think of myself and others as “Hopeful Romantics.” The world needs romance. The latest group gift at Dead Dollz is this romantic little dress, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day. These letters, books, and flowers adding to the romantic setting is a free Lucky Letter Board prize décor set at Tentacio. Keep reading for details about each of these finds, and get all the credits at the end.

Dead Dollz

I love it when Dead Dollz has a new group gift. The gifts are always beautiful, and this dress is definitely that. It includes a color change hud that lets you pick the color for the dress and the belt. There are seven colors to choose from ranging from white to red, with several pink choices in-between. The dress comes fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden.

Tenatcio

Not too long ago I had fun with one of the free Lucky Letter Board prizes at Tentacio for my “Healthy Life” post. This time I am happy to share with you another free Lucky Board prize from Tentacio. This prize is the “Flower Memories” décor set, and it includes the envelope with flowers, the scattered letters and book, and the open book with flowers and scattered petals. Each of these lovely décor items is copy and can be resized. There’s no group required to participate in the Lucky Boards at Tentacio, so this set is completely free you just have to wait for your letter to come up.

Silk and Sunshine

Silk and Sunshine

Hey There, FabFree! Have you been down to the FaMESHed event yet? There’s always something new or something exclusive from some of Second Life’s top designers. I have to keep a pretty short leash on my wallet or I could go a little crazy. Happily, lots of the designers have put out some fantastic free gifts for us.

Silk Makes Me Smile

For example… this sweet little silky romper from Luas. This is the “Sandy” romper in sky floral. As with everything I’ve seen from Luas, this is perfectly built and wonderfully textured. The Sandy Romper is available in lots of other patterns and colors for L at FaMESHed. And after seeing how cute this color is… you just might be tempted to indulge!

Sizes Included

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