Hi There Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t had the opportunity to play with some of the fun bento hand poses out there, you should. They really add to the expressiveness of your avatar. This particular pose is a Freebie group gift at Zen Creations. The Zen Creations group is FREE to join, and there are several gift poses available, as well as a group gift candle set. You can check the candles out in Love’s recent post “Creating Curb Appeal“. To get this pose, pay the gift vendor 1 linden while wearing your group tag, and you’ll get your pose and be instantly refunded your 1 linden.
Like the cute little flower print crop top Pru has on? You can get it for FREE at CandyDoll. This cute top is their most recent group gift. It comes in a tight and loose version. I really should have taken a photo that showed the back of this top, it ties in the back for a super cute look. The CandyDoll group is FREE to join, so don’t miss out!
Happy Weekend Fab Free! I hope you’ve all been able to enjoy at least some of the weekend. My weekend has been good, and was made even better with two of my favorite things, shoes, and unicorns! Not to mention that they were both FREE group gifts for the month of June.
Sometimes all that really matters, are the shoes. This pretty pair of pastel blue heels with the ties at the ankles are a FREE group gift by Empire available to all “Friendship: The Hangout” group members. The shoes only come in the color shown, however there is a HUD that allows you to change the color of the sole, and the little metal accents. Friendship: The Hangout is a unique social gathering space where anyone can come to spend time with friends, and make new ones. The group is FREE to join. To get your FREE pair of Empire shoes, just join the group and click the blue “Group Gift” sign at Friendship: The Hangout.
Now about those unicorns I mentioned. This cute little tire and pillows seat is the FREE June group gift at Chez Moi. The gift has 10 sit/lay poses. I absolutely adore the unicorn fabric on the center pillow, it’ll be too cute on my patio. The Chez Moi group is FREE to join. To get your copy, just head over to Chez Moi, join the group and click the gift vendor.
Here are the details, Enjoy!
Hair – +Spellbound+ Sweetsleep // Chapter I : Earth
Oh Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very girly today, princess-like even thanks to this pretty floral dress and matching shoes from NSP Florals. The gifts at NSP Florals have always been generous, so I was not at all surprised to see that the shoes came with this beautiful pink dress. I can’t help but imagine a romantic date on a warm summer evening dancing and laughing in this dress. I also love the added detail of the straps on the bodice. The NSP Florals group has a one time join fee of 125 lindens. In addition to this June group gift, there are group only lucky letters, and you can purchase a few of the previous group gifts for just 5 lindens each.
Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by, hopefully a little retail therapy will help this Monday feel like, well, less of a Monday. As I am certain many are aware, June is Pride month. I think love is love and rainbows are Fabulous, especially when they come in the form of gifts (the rainbows, you dirty birds! *insert winky face here*). With those sweet simple sentiments in mind, I picked up the colorful June group gifts at Flowey and Stix.
First Rain, Then Rainbows
In my last post my plans had been slightly spoiled by a little rain. Since then I’ve been reminded that the rain never lasts forever, and you can’t have rainbows without a little rain. The rainbow on this cute tshirt dress from Flowey has nothing to do with rain I know, but I had to tie things in somehow! Even so, it’s good to remember those two sayings. That said, this thsirt dress is the June group gift at Flowey. It comes in several mesh sizes, and it’s FREE to all group members. There is a group join fee of 100 lindens for the Flowey group, however, I think it’s worth mentioning that I counted at least 6 previous group gifts still available.
I don’t feel at all bad admitting that I’ve been waiting for just the right outfit to wear this eye makeup from Stix. I was really excited to see a look with lots of dramatic color under the eye on the lower lid. I also love the addition of little silver or gold stars. This omega applier makeup is a FREE June group gift at Stix. In the applier hud you can pick a bright or pastel version of the shadow with either gold or silver stars. Also included in the package are classic system layers. The Stix group is currently FREE to join. Does this gift remind anyone else of Rainbow Brite? One more reason to love it in my opinion!
This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.
Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.
There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.
The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.
Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega
…Come Again Another Day
During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.
Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty
Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.
Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”. Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.
Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch. The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.
Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad
Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you had fun weekend. Considering my adventurous weekend that started with an afternoon of mojitos, turned into a ladies night adventure with my gal pal Love, and ended with two days worth of friends, family, and lots of indulgent food choices: today needed to include healthy food choices and exercise. You know the kind of weekends I’m taking about. The ones where your jeans fit on Friday but are a bit tight by Monday morning, and ultimately, it was all worth it!
So, in the name of good health, I picked up this FREE group gift outfit from Lavarock Creations. It’s true, there’s an outfit for everything, even exercise. This cute set comes with a color change hud with 5 color choices so you can change the main color of the shorts and top. The Lavarock Creations group is FREE to join.
P.S. There’s also a male group gift available at Lavarock Creations, you may have seen it in Carson’s post “Amped.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if all it took was looking the part to get the job done? One can daydream. Maybe I will just hang out in Second Life a moment or two longer. Exercise can wait! Lately I’ve been very much enjoying the addition of bento hands to Second Life. It’s been fun experimenting with the expressiveness. This fun thumbs up pose is a FREE gift from Touchic. There’s no need to join a group, just pay the vendor zero linden. A quick tip, if you’re a Maitreya Lara wearer like I am, you’ll want to use your hud to turn off your hand animations so this animation can work. Alright, time to go get that workout done!
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.
I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.
I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh
It’s a Wrap
The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.
This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.
Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included
Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.
