Guilty Pleasures

Guilty Pleasure

Hello Fab Free! If you’ve ever seen the movie Ocean’s Eleven you’re familiar with Brad Pitt’s character in the film and the fact that he always had snacks. I find that very relatable. lol Thankfully Second Life makes it so easy to be indulgent. Today I got to indulge my fondness for food, and fashion.

Le Poppycock

This delicious looking pink drink and the corresponding bento pose are one of the many gachas from the “Guilty Pleasures” gacha set by Le Poppycock currently featured at The Pose Fair. These gacha poses are all various sweets and savory treats that I couldn’t resist spending a few lindens on. This Le Poppycock gacha is just 69 lindens per play, and since they are transferrable you can trade them. The Pose Fair is open until September 28th. Also, don’t forget there are free Pose Fair group gifts!
New at Pose Fair!

Afrotay

Now for the fashion! This cute red dress is a free group gift by Afrotay. I couldn’t resist the stylized snake graphic. I think it’s so interesting and unique. I also really like the way the shoulder straps come together in the back, and I am wishing I’d taken a photo of it to share with you. The dress comes in a pretty bright yellow color as well as this vibrant red. The Afrotay group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

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

Video Games

Video Games

I can’t imagine anyone being at all surprised that I’m super nerdy a lot of the time and pretty proud of it too! This is also a specific instance in which I am perfectly okay with perpetuating a few stereotypes. Gaming headsets are nerd gear. Gamers are nerdy, and it is awesome. Glasses are sexy, and also nerdy. The two go together ladies and gents! Books, especially on a bookshelf with photos of space, also nerdy. I love it! lol Lastly, I happen to be wearing a group gift romper, which may not be a nerdy stereotype but it is super comfortable. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about my nerdilicious finds. Also, please don’t take any offense to my name calling. In my mind being a nerd is not a bad thing, and this is all meant to be in fun and not judgmental in anyway. ❤

Spoiled 

If you head to the back of the Spoiled store you’ll see some rather racy gamer girl outfits with accessories. One of those accessories are these winged gaming headphones. They come in a fatpack of color options with choices for coloring 2 parts of the headset, and they are completely free. Just buy them for nada, zip, zilch, zero linden.

BND

These adorably nerdy glasses are another Marketplace find by BND. These “Vintage” beauties by BND can be yours for just 4 linden. They also have a color change hud with options for the frames, lenses, and stem ends.

Someone Stole My Sign

The Geeks Unite event (a childrens/teens event) starts August 7th and runs for a few weeks. At this event you can pick up this “nerd” bookshelf set by Someone Stole My Sign (SSMS) for just 1 linden. The gift also includes an ottoman (not shown).

Chic Moda 

This cute low-cut romper is the August group gift at Chic Moda. This gift comes in three sizes, and has a texture change hud with six choices. The Chic Moda group is 150 linden to join.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Lioness

Lioness

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”
― Osho

“A lion doesn’t concern itself with the opinion of sheep.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

With today’s post I want to encourage everyone, myself included, to take the path of the lion. I understand that at times this is easier said than done. What inspired all this inclination toward courage and self love? My shirt believe it or not. This cropped tee was destined to become a staple in my wardrobe. It also happens to pair quite nicely with this earring artwork that has me kind of obsessed. I’ll tell you all about each of these fantastic finds, and hopefully you’ll feel a little inspired by them as well.

MicrO

The lion top is a 75 linden Marketplace bargain from a little shop called MicrO. I would encourage you to check there Marketplace store out. If the lion isn’t really your bag, there are several other versions available at MicrO with the same affordable price. I genuinely like the fit of this crop. It’s short enough to be sexy but I don’t feel like the girls are going to expose themselves if I move around too much.

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

Garmonbozia

I’m not sure how long  Garmonbozia has been around however I am excited about this new-to-me store find. Along with being aesthetically pretty, the jewelry there is truly wearable art. I even like that this free group gift earring is just a single earring, and not a pair. It’s eye catching and fierce. Though you can’t see it, I paired it with a simple stud in my other ear for symmetry. The Garmonbozia group is free to join.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – 7 Deadly s[K]ins

It’s been a minute since we had a Designer Friday feature post on the blog, so even though it’s late in the day we are getting it done this week! For this post it’s all about skins, 7 Deadly s[K]ins to be exact. 7 Deadly s[K]ins has been an almost constant participant in the Fab Free community, which we of course love. So I am happy to be telling you all about this awesome shop. There are two floors of shopping at the 7 Deadly s[K]ins main store. New releases, gifts, and newer female skins are all on the first floor. The second floor is where you’ll find the male skins, discount skins, and some of the previous group gifts available for sale.

Along with their male and female skins there are lots of extras you can get to further customize your look. There are things such as freckles, makeup, body moles, cleavage options, and more that you can purchase at 7 Deadly s[K]ins. There’s also large number of skin-tones, most of which fall into a light to medium tone range. There are also lots of applier choices, and many of the skins are BOM. Additionally you can purchase shapes at 7 Deadly s[K]ins that are made specifically to suit their skins.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Store Group 

7 Deadly s[K]ins known for frequent and generous gifts for both male and female avatars. The group has a join fee of 295 linden. With the group tag you get exclusive sales, discounts, and gifts. Also, there are Mini Mania boards, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards that require the group tag to participate. Each month 7 Deadly s[K]ins offers a free male and female group gift skin. Currently there are also 2 7 Deadly s[K]ins Anniversary gifts with a full set of free skins in the boxes. You’ll find those gifts inside the entrance on the wall between the two doors. Current male and female group gifts are located behind the information desk.

The group only prize boards and camping chairs at 7 Deadly s[K]ins are mostly on the first floor. There are 3 total camping chairs (2 on the first floor, and 1 on the second) that offer gifts. The group only Mini Mania boards are on the first floor. There are 6 total boards with 5 female gifts, and 1 male. You’ll find Lucky Letter boards on both floors. There are 7 total boards, 2 of which have male prizes, and 5 of them have female prizes.  I also spotted a Lottery Board on the second floor that appeared to contain a 300 linden 7 Deadly s[K]ins gift card.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Fab Free Group Gift

The Fabulously Free in SL group gift at 7 Deadly s[K]ins is a pretty female skin called Mareike. She comes in 7 tones with Omega head/body appliers, and BOM layers. The Fabulously Free in SL group is required, however it is (and always will be) free to join. You’ll find this free gift waiting near the Midnight Madness boards on the first floor at 7 Deadly s[K]ins.

 

Other Gifts and Sales

7 Deadly s[K]ins is participating in the Saturday Sale with a female skin priced at just 70 linden per tone. There was another sales board, however there was not a current offer. Perhaps that’ll be a future offer. Toward the back of the store on the right side there are 2 Midnight Mania boards that are open to everyone, no group required. This area is also where you’ll find several gifts for other groups.

Sitting on shelves on the wall there are vendors with group logos. Each group has their own gift, which you can get by wearing the group tag for that group and clicking the vendor box with the corresponding group logo. I counted 9 total gifts including the gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. There’s also a free Stay at Home Club gift on the first floor that includes the full Akyla skin with Omega head/body appliers, BOM layers, brow shaper, and a shape intended for Genus heads.

Losing My Zed

LOSING MY ZED- Prudence Rexroth

Down the hatch in one quick swallow! Hi Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m sure you’re curious as to why I am about to swallow this cute pink letter z. It’s all because of Kiddo Oh, the owner/creator of Dead Doll formerly Dead Dollz. You may have heard that in June the iconic brand Dead Dollz was rebranded and became Dead Doll. In celebration there is a super cute freebie that is intended to be worn for the Dead Doll photo contest.

What’s the contest? It is intended to be a photo depiction of how “Dead Dollz” might have lost their “z” and became Dead Doll. There are some really incredible prizes for this contest and it is free to enter. First prize is 10,000 linden, and 5,000 in store credit to spend at Dead Doll! There is no group requirement to pick up the free contest merchandise at the Dead Doll store. You’ll find it sitting on the counter near the contest information sign. The deadline is July 15th, so hurry if you want to enter, and don’t forget to check the notecard included in the package for all contest rules and information.

The free Dead Doll photo contest merchandise package comes with a knotted logo tee, a coffee to go with bento hold pose (not pictured), and a re-sizeable letter z. Good Luck, and enjoy the freebies!

Tiki Bar

Tiki Bar

In a quest to enjoy some sunshine and get some Vitamin D, Blue and I have taken to exploring bright beachy locations. These little excursions have led us to some pretty cool places. Not to mention that the promise of adventure is also probably the best way to get me out of my beloved pajamas. lol

Speaking of not being in pajamas, my colorful t-shirt dress is a free gift by UNA at Second Life’s 17th Birthday shopping event. It comes in rainbow, black, and white. My cute chunky heart earrings are a free SL17B gift by NeverWish. I thought they were perfect with the rainbow “Road Trip” dress by UNA. I’m kind of digging the whole ’80s vibe this look gives. Blue picked up a few freebies at the SL17B Shop & Hop event also. His flip-flops are the free SL17B gift from Native Urban, while the cool ring he’s wearing is the free mens gift at SL17B by Lapointe & BastChild. There’s a ladies version of the ring as well. Blue’s shirt and shorts are both hunt prizes on the AllStuff hunt. His cool floral sleeveless hoodie is a dollarbie hunt prize at Waffles, while his casual linen shorts are a free hunt gift at UnderDog. The AllStuff Hunt ends June 30th, so don’t wait and miss these!

A ‘o ia!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

Hello Summer!

Summer Bright

Hello Fab Free and hello summer! The Women Only Hunt 6 started yesterday and while I haven’t picked up all the gifts quite yet, I did pick up all the WOH6 gifts at Crystal Store. Yes, I said all the gifts. Crystal Store has 6 total hunt gifts that are 10 lindens each. For this hunt you’ll be searching for a bright yellow sun with a smiley face on it. The Women Only Hunt lasts from now until June 30th. I’ve added a copy of the hunt prize key from Crystal Store so you can get a better look at each of the prizes.

There’s nothing quite like crisp white fabric in summer, and I love this cute head-to-toe look from Crystal Store. The full set includes the top, skirt with belt, shoes, sunglasses, headphones, and ice cream cone (not shown in my photo). The sunglasses, and headphones can be sized via touch menu, and the ice cream has a bento hold pose. The skirt, top, and shoes are sized for Maitreya and Belleza bodies only. Happy Hunting!
