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

Oceanside

Hi Fab Free, question, is it still called breakfast if it’s not morning? I don’t know about you, but I could eat bacon, sausage, and eggs any time of day. Add some fresh fruit to the mix and that makes it perfect. This scrumptious looking meal, and my tied tee are both available at The Cart Sale priced too fabulously to pass them up. Keep reading for all the delicious details, and check the end for full credits. Lastly, enjoy your breakfast! 😛

Dark Knight Décor 

My mouth-watering meal including the coffee and cutlery are from Dark Knight Decor’s booth at The Cart Sale. Along with this traditional breakfast, there are a handful of other equally detailed food items. There’s also a few kitchen décor bits and bobs to be had. The breakfast set I picked up is just 25 linden, and will look fantastic on your table, or balanced on the arm of your seaside chair.

Dark Water Designs 

An iconic warm weather wardrobe stable has to be a tied tee. This baby blue and white top by Dark Water Designs is also available at The Cart Sale. There are several spring-like shades available for 25 linden each. These tops are not only cute, they come in several sizes, and have an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (V1, V2), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Ever Green

Ever Green

Even though it’s no longer St. Patrick’s Day, the color green is still very much in season. Recently Aline did a beautiful job of telling us about the Lucky Glam Hunt happening at LEIGH in her post “Give the Green Light.” This in-store hunt is still going on and will last until March 31st. I went to check it out for myself and I gotta say that if green is your color, this hunt is definitely worth the effort.

So for this post I’m showing off a few more of the gorgeous green prizes from the Lucky Glam Hunt at LEIGH. I managed to hunt down the “Beloved” dress, the leg chains, some sparkly green glitter nail polish for just 10 lindens each. The leg chains come with a hud to change the color of the metal. The glittery manicure is in 4 shades of sparkling green. I also got lucky and found the free prize which includes a shamrock leg tattoo, and several “Irish” roses with different hold options. I’ll add a copy of the Lucky Glam Hunt key below. Also, if you click the hunt sign at LEIGH you’ll get a notecard with hints for each of the hunt prizes. The hunt object is a glowy green shamrock. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

  • Beloved Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

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.

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Damn Good

Damn Good

Alright, so Valentine’s Day might officially be over, but there’s no reason you can’t continue to celebrate. Even more, there’s no reason to not continue picking up all the fantastic February/Valentine’s Day group gifts still available. My sexy sporty look is mostly thanks to a new group gift at SPIRIT, while my fancy beverage is a current group gift at e.marie. You know the drill by now, keep reading for more information, and get full credits at the end.

SPIRIT

I’m going to be honest with you, I love the way this group gift outfit from SPIRIT looks on. However, I was a little unsure about how to style it. I went with a somewhat sporty look, and I think it worked out alright. haha However you choose to style this fun, sexy outfit, it’ll look great. The outfit includes the strapped bra top, and matching pants with front panel cutouts. Both the top and the pants have customization huds that let you change the color/texture of the straps, and the metal bits on the bra top. A few of the options have cool phrases like the one I chose that reads “I may be a bad girl but I’m a damn good woman.” Can’t argue with that! To get yours, you’ll need to join the SPIRIT group which has a join fee of 19 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

e.marie

You can never go wrong with a group gift from e.marie. This sweet little latte is the Valentine’s Day group gift at e.marie. It has a bento hold pose built in, and a cute particle effect. To get your hands on this foamy confection, simply head over to e.marie and click the gift vendor while wearing your e.marie group tag. The e.marie group has a join fee of 50 linden. This group gift is waiting outside the store with the other Valentine’s Day themed items.
