Summer Sun

Summer Sun

Yellow, it’s a vibe for me this summer. I just want to be warm, happy, and someplace sunny! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I know I cannot complain, especially not when I have the awesome Fab Free community to be part of. Truly, I am thankful. For this look I picked up both the top, and the pants for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all the what, where, and how.

Aquara 

I was honestly surprised at how much I like this free top only because until now Aquara is not a brand I was familiar with and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s super cute on, and the textures are really nice. This halter top is a free group gift, and the group is free to join at this time. It comes with a color/texture hud that has 8 choices. It also has a separate hud for tinting the top any color you want. There are a few things I wanted to note about the packaging and the hud. First, the package says “Maitreya” on it, but don’t worry there are more sizes. Second, the color/texture hud when first attached will show you the Aquara Marketplace page. I was confused at first! lol There’s a tab on the side however that when clicked will take you to the color/texture choices.

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

Aurora’s Closet 

These capri style jeans with rainbow pockets are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Aurora’s Closet. I wanted something new and cute to go with my halter top, and these capris fit the bill. These free denim pants come in black and in blue for extra versatility. Overall I was pretty pleased with these. They are a great addition to my closet and you can’t beat the price!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), EBody (Classic, Curvy), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

ACCESS

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

Versov 

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes. We’ve shown a few of the other Versov group gifts like the Jumpov sneakers, the Zlatorov heels, and the Sandov slides before. They are all still available.

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Satus Inc.

Happy Friday Fab Free! Thank you as always for being here. I’m excited about today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. Satus Inc. has participated as a Fab Free designer for quite a few years. It’s hard to describe the Satus Inc. store simply because they have so much to offer. This could almost be consider a “one-stop” shop. Really and truly there’s something for everyone.

At Satus Inc. you’ll find female fashion, poses, furniture, decor, gadgets and gizmos. The ladieswear at Satus Inc. is mostly comprised of casual dresses, though there are what I would call business attire dresses, and even a few cocktail type gowns. You’ll also see casual clothes like shorts, sleepwear, and t-shirts, along with shoes and some accessories. Most of the ladies clothing is upstairs.

As for the furniture and decor there is a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, with PG and Adult animations. I suggest taking a moment to really look around. You never know what you might find. There are also quite a few fun and useful gadgets at Satus Inc. Again, I strongly suggest planning a shopping trip to check out all this shop has to offer. Poses are under the stairs to the left, and the furniture is on the first floor to the right, with a little bit of everything else in between. Group gifts of all kinds are on the wall to the left in front of the stairs.

Satus Inc. Group

There are 30 group gifts for the Satus Inc. group. That’s not a mistake, the Satus Inc. group is just 25 linden to join and there are 30 total group gifts out at this time.

Joining the Satus Inc. group gets you instant access to all the gifts, and updates on future gifts and promotions.

A ‘o ia!

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!

Swimsuit sizes Included:

  • His – Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature Gianni, Slink, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer
  • Hers – Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), eBody (Curvy, Classic), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

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!

Here in the Garden

Here in My Garden

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week in June? I’m pretty sure May was the longest single month I’ve ever experienced. I’m happy to be here in the month of June. Speaking of it being a new month, that means there’s a new group gift available at American Bazaar. This pretty peachy-pink colored dress with the stylized floral print is the free American Bazaar group gift for this month. It comes in sizes fit for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Feeling cute in my new dress I decided to take a stroll through the trails at Otter Lake. There are so many lovely spots to explore there. My pose and the butterfly prop are a free group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair Market. The set comes with the pose, 2 versions of the butterfly prop (one transferrable, one not), and a pose-ball version of the pose. To get yours you’ll need to join the free-to-join Pose Fair Market group and stop by the Hazeel booth. There you’ll find the gift pose waiting.

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

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

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.

It was all a Daydream

It was all a Daydream

Do you ever have one of those daydreams where you hear, smell, and feel the dream rather than just see it in your mind? I have those sort of daydreams about the ocean. In the moment I can hear the sea birds, and the rush of the waves, smell that unmistakable salty sea air, feel the wet sand beneath my feet, and the warm sun on my skin. Thank goodness for Second Life where beach-life is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long!

Beauty Factory

Speaking of beach-life, I picked up this new bikini at Beauty Factory recently. It’s one of their most recent group gifts, and it comes in several colors and sizes. Not only that, did you know that Beauty Factory has a room of group gifts? That’s right I said room. There is a one time join fee of 99 linden for the Beauty Factory group, however I think the number of group gifts available more than makes up for it. You’ll find the group gift room at Beauty Factory in one of the smaller buildings outside the main building. Happy Shopping!

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara
