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

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 dĂ©cor 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

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.

Blueberries and Cactus

Garden Projects

Hello hello Fab Free! I’ve got some goodies from Blueberry (including store credit!), some cute denim applier shorts by Nerdosaurus, and a Le Poppycock freebie by way of the Pose Fair to share with you today. As always, but especially now, I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and doing well despite all the unpleasantness out in the world. That said, hopefully these free and inexpensive finds make you smile. You know how this works from here, keep reading for details, and peep full credits at the end.

P.S. I even put a few extras in the credits! Have fun Fab Free! 

Blueberry

It’s a good time to be part of the Blueberry in-world group if you’re not already. Caroline gave me the heads up that just a day or two ago they sent out a group gift via notices that is a complete Mega Pack. There’s also a 350 linden store credit available to group members also in a notice sent out today! You guys, that makes the 20 linden join fee worth it worth it worth it!!

The generous Mega Pack gift from Blueberry includes the puffer jacket, and dress with lots of options. Along with several sizes, the jacket and dress can be worn together or separately. If you want to wear both together, wear the jacket in your size and use the detailed customization hud to show the dress. From there you can pick from tons of color options for the dress, jacket, and metal parts. Additionally, there is an option to hide or show panties with a lace option for those as well as the color choices. Reminder, the Blueberry group has a one time join fee of 20 linden. Don’t forget to check the notices!

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

Nerdosaurus 

I personally chose to wear the group gift dress from Blueberry as a shirt and put on a cute pair of denim shorts by Nerdosarus.  I found them for just 10 linden on the Marketplace. For that price especially, these shorts are a steal! The shorts come in 5 denim shades, each in an Omega applier as well as classic system layers.

Le Poppycock

The Pose Fair is a must-go-to shopping stop. There are so many free gifts I can’t even tell you how many, and there are poses for everyone. The Pose Fair group is also free to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift boxes to get your free gift. These cute little cacti are part of the Pose Fair gift by Le Poppycock. This gift includes the cacti and a single bento hold pose.

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)
    Leg Chains Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara
    Manicure Appliers: Maitreya, Slink, Omega
    Tattoo Applier: Omega, Classic System Layer

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.

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “I love nutcrackers, reindeer and snowmen.”

Because Sleeves

Because Sleeves

No matter how old I get, I can’t imagine not loving slightly too long sleeves on my sweatshirts. Maybe it’s some kind of nostalgia, or just that it makes them feel extra cozy. This sweet extra long-sleeved cropped sweater is the November 2019 group gift at Luas. It comes in a hand-full of sizes and has a texture/change hud with 6 graphic options for the main shirt, and 6 solid colors for the undershirt. Most of the graphic choices are holiday themed, however there is the cute kitty face shown and an equally cute lucky cat option. The Luas group has a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are past group gifts available.

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