Life Goes On

Life Goes On

Hello there Fab Free’rs. I hope Monday is treating you well. Hopefully this post can help make your day a little brighter. I’ve got lovely group gifts from Opia and Riddell to share with you. A little freebie shopping sounds like an excellent way to start the week to me!

Opia

The ruffled coral pink halter top I’m wearing is a free group gift by the Opia brand for the Poison Rouge group. The group is 30 linden to join. My favorite part of this halter style top is the ribbon that ties it up in the back. The group joiner is located right next to the gift vendor.

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

Riddell 

The little tattoos around my eye are a free group gift from Riddell. The wording above my eyebrow reads “life goes on” and there are definitely times in life when I feel like that is important to remember. The Riddell group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Applier (faded/fresh), BOM Tattoo Layers (faded,fresh)

Prepping for Halloween

Prepping for Halloween
Are any of your excited for Halloween? It is my favourite holiday, but it’s always more fun on SL in my humble opinion. I got some amazing jewelry that reminded me of Halloween and an amazing dress on the fall Twisted Hunt, as well as a great pose from the Pose Fair event.

Twisted Hunt- Drow

Pru recently showed some of the amazing prizes you can get from the fall Twisted Hunt, and I’m showing off a couple more today.
The Twisted Hunt is always really tricky and fun at the same time. You are looking for the little cubes with prizes in them at each hunt location, but watch out for the decoys! The main hunt ends on September 31st, and endgame is available to play until October 17th (a game/hunt at the end of the grid-wide hunt where you win lots of prizes if you complete the challenging puzzles and quests). Have fun on the hunt! All prizes on the hunt are free.

the.best.dress.

I am in love with this dress by Ari-Pari. It comes with a colour hud of a variety if colours and it is very versatile. It is their free twisted hunt prize, available until September 31st.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

Halloween Jewels!

Some other prizes I absolutely loved from this round of Twisted are several free hunt prizes at Moondance Boutique. There is a whole jewelery set available, so you are looking for several hunt prizes here. Just click the little Twisted hunt easle at the store to get the details about all the prizes hidden here. I am showing off the earrings, necklace and rings and there is also two colour huds available as prizes to change the colours of the jewelery set.

Hopscotch @ the Pose Fair

We have seen quite a lot of posts this month about the Pose Fair, and today I am showing the free gift by HopScotch. This round of Pose Fair ends on September 28th, so get over there quickly.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Fierce Love

Photo Credits: Left photo by Prudence Rexroth / Right photo by BlueGreyEyeGentleman

Under the cloak of darkness, among the wisps and fireflies such a moment exists when love conquers all, even for fearsome Drow. The realm of the Dark Elves has taken over the Twisted Hunt this fall. Will you be able to brave this difficult journey and seek the hunt prizes through decoys and without hints to their location?

The fall Twisted Hunt with the Drow theme will end September 30th, with the End Game lasting through October 17th. Don’t wait to embark on this quest for free Dark Elf inspired gifts and prizes. Blue and I both took on the Twisted Hunt, though I admittedly did not complete the full hunt. Thanks to quite a few of the free Twisted hunt prizes, he and I were able to create these striking Dark Elf characters.

The Last Days of Summer

The Last of Summer

Some days even though the air is hot and sticky, you just need to be outside in it. I can’t quite describe what is so calming about listening to the sounds of the world around you and simply existing in the stillness of a late summer afternoon.

Miix Event Gifts

Summer can’t last forever, and neither will the Miix event gifts by Furtacor. The Miix event will end September 20th. Blue is wearing Furtacor’s group gift for the men. His sleeveless shirt comes in several sizes with the skull and guitars graphic shown. My watermelon print bikini is the group gift for the women. You’ll need the event group tag to claim the free gifts (they are packaged together). The Miix event group is free to join.

Men’s Sizes Included: Signature Gianni, Slink Male, Belleza Jake

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

MG Designs

Blue also picked up his shorts for free at MG Designs. They are a free gift for the Stay at Home Club. These shorts come in the blue wave-like pattern shown, and several mesh sizes. There’s also an alpha layer included in the package. MG Designs has gifts for men and women, but get them quickly. Stay at Home Club officially ends on September 25th. Some gifts may not remain available. No group is needed.

Sizes Included: Adin Bento, Belleza Jake, Fitmesh Classic, Ocacin Gamit, Onupup, Signature Gianni, Slink Male

Belleposes

Also, this sweet couples pose Blue and I are in is one of several free group gifts at Belleposes. The Belleposes group is free to join. The group gifts are on the wall near the desk at the landing point. There are multiple couples poses and static female pose gifts.

Evening Quiet

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

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

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

My New Bumbly Friend

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! Aline recently posted about the end of the Stay at Home Club event. This event was incredible, and I am so thankful to the organizers of the event and to the participating designers for all of the free gifts we have been given in the last few months. Today I will be showing you one of the amazing new and final gifts from the Stay at Home Club by Astara, and how to get this adorable sweater by Mooh!, all for under ten linden.

The Last Goodies at the Stay at Home Club

I am showing one of the last free gifts from the Stay at Home Club, which is this pet called Bumbly friend by Astara. It’s such a cute pet, and it comes in three versions. One sits on your head, another rests on your shoulder and the third one is holdable. As soon as I saw the ad for this little cutie I knew I had to have it. It’s so cute!

Astara has a bunch of other free Stay at Home club gifts out at the store right now as well. Astara is a wonderful designer, and the gifts there are just incredible. The club is ending on September 25th, so make sure you check out all of the gifts still available on their gifts webpage before that date, as the club and the gifts will no longer be available after the 25th. The types of gifts available range from home decor, men and women’s apparel, skins, shapes, makeup, accessories, and much more! There will be something for everyone, so take advantage of this amazing event while you still can.

Isla

This sweater is from Mooh!, and it is their new teleport hub group gift. Simply join the Teleport hub group for 10 L and the sweater is yours. The sweater come with an extensive colour hud. This sweater is cozy and perfect for the upcoming fall season.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Crazy Cat Lady

Crazy Cat Lady

I don’t think anyone really sets out to become a “Crazy Cat Lady.” I think it’s something that sort of claims you. From the first kitten/cat that enters your life, the seed of cat lady-ness (or in some cases, crazy cat guy-dom)  germinates. I also think that from then on other cats know you’re now a “cat person” and they find you. Whether it be a stray kitten meowling for help in the parking lot where you work, or adoption ads from animal shelter pages on social media… they find you. Suddenly you find yourself in this situation, crouching on the floor with several of what you now refer to as your fur babies.

All the kitties aside, I do have some fantastic freebies to share with you. My top is a free group gift by UNA at the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event. My stylish bun is a freebie as well. It’s a free gift at SHEGO. Keep reading for details about both free finds, while I herd these silly cats into the kitchen for some food and water.

UNA

Yes, you read that right. There is an event titled Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It’s geared toward the recent influx of chest sizes choices with some of the female bodies. The important part here is that UNA has a free group gift at the event. This cute top is free to all UNA group members. There’s a group joiner at the IBTC event, and the UNA group is free to join. This top comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with lots of options. There’s also a cool glowing UNA logo on the back of the shirt, and an optional glowing UNA pin that attaches on the front of the shirt.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Petite, Flat, Original), MeshBody Legacy (Perky, Original), Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

SHEGO

Once again I’ve been doing some exploring in Second Life, and I’m glad I did. I came across a hair shop called SHEGO that has this ultra cute top bun for free. There’s no group needed, just purchase the hairstyle from the vendor for zero linden. This style comes with an Omega applier hair base, and a system layer hair base. The bun part of the style, and the side wisps are mesh.

Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

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

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You

Caticorn Cuteness

Caticorn Cute

Hellooo there Fab Free! Does anyone else sometimes dress to fit their mood? I find a lot of the time my outfit is an almost direct reflection of how I am feeling or what I want to project. That said, these caticorns from Reed definitely suit my silly playful mood. Together the pose and the outfit are such a fun vibe. My playful pose is a group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair. I love it when I find free gifts that play well together!

Reed 

These pink shorts and the cute as heck caticorn print top are a free group gift at Reed. The Reed group is free to join, and the previous group gift shown here is still available. The only things better than unicorns, are caticorns. Just saying.

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

Hazeel

It’s Pose Fair time! Hazeel has this super fun bento pose out at their booth at the Pose Fair for free. You’ll need to join the event group (it is free to join) and wear the tag when you click the gift box to get your copy of this great pose.

Both Seniha and Bumblebee will require you to join their store group to participate in the Lucky boards. Both store groups also happen to be free to join. I picked up this pretty purple top at Seniha as a free Lucky Letter prize. My denim shorts are a free Lucky Letter prize at Bumblebee.
