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!

Need Caffeine

Need Caffeine

There are days when an extra cup of coffee or two first thing in the morning, and a mid-day pick-me-up are in order to keep me going. So when I saw this top by ZFG it made me giggle, and I knew at least some of you would relate. lol To help fend off a minor case of the Mondays I went over to the 35L Sales Event (thanks to a suggestion from Blue) and picked up quite a few of the free group gifts available, including this top. All the gifts require the 35L Sunday VIP group which is free to join.

Along with the top from ZFG I picked up this cute hairstyle from C.K., and this pretty necklace by Venge. Keep reading for more information about each of these free gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

ZFG

This shirt by ZFG is the definition of a loose-fitting comfy casual top. It’s the kind you wear around the house, or maybe with a cute sports bra to the gym. It comes in the color shown and reads “Caffeine is the Foundation of My Food Pyramid.” This gift is free at the 35L Sales Event, just wear the free group tag and click the black and red giftbox.

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

C.K.

This high ponytail hairstyle is also a free gift at the 35L Sales Event. It’s the quintessential messy but cute up-do. It also comes with a pretty flower crown that I chose not to wear, and a color change hud with a broad range of blond, brunette, and red hair colors.

Venge

Also, I couldn’t resist the necklace from Venge. This free gift includes 3 color/texture change huds to change the chain with a choice of copper, gold, or silver. Each of the 3 huds then has a choice of 6 colors for the crystal. Just like all the gifts at the 35L Sales Event, this one is free with the event group tag.

Soak Up the Sun

Soak Up the Sun

Hi Fab Free! I don’t think I’m quite ready to head out to the beaches, but my backyard basin will do me fine. The weather is nice, and I need some sunshine. Most  of my little backyard setup is a new gacha set by Petite Mort out at Gacha Garden. My bikini and wedge shoes are part of the set too. Oh, and let’s not forget the best part, the mojito!

What’s this about a mojito you ask? Well, it is the Petite Mort Exclusive at Gacha Garden awarded after 20 plays. It has an animated hold pose. The bikini and shoes both come in several sizes and colors, and the furniture has poses. This fun Cabana gacha set by Petite Mort at Gacha Garden is just 50 linden per play, and is perfect for summer.

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

Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

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 décor 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

Damn Good

Damn Good

Alright, so Valentine’s Day might officially be over, but there’s no reason you can’t continue to celebrate. Even more, there’s no reason to not continue picking up all the fantastic February/Valentine’s Day group gifts still available. My sexy sporty look is mostly thanks to a new group gift at SPIRIT, while my fancy beverage is a current group gift at e.marie. You know the drill by now, keep reading for more information, and get full credits at the end.

SPIRIT

I’m going to be honest with you, I love the way this group gift outfit from SPIRIT looks on. However, I was a little unsure about how to style it. I went with a somewhat sporty look, and I think it worked out alright. haha However you choose to style this fun, sexy outfit, it’ll look great. The outfit includes the strapped bra top, and matching pants with front panel cutouts. Both the top and the pants have customization huds that let you change the color/texture of the straps, and the metal bits on the bra top. A few of the options have cool phrases like the one I chose that reads “I may be a bad girl but I’m a damn good woman.” Can’t argue with that! To get yours, you’ll need to join the SPIRIT group which has a join fee of 19 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

e.marie

You can never go wrong with a group gift from e.marie. This sweet little latte is the Valentine’s Day group gift at e.marie. It has a bento hold pose built in, and a cute particle effect. To get your hands on this foamy confection, simply head over to e.marie and click the gift vendor while wearing your e.marie group tag. The e.marie group has a join fee of 50 linden. This group gift is waiting outside the store with the other Valentine’s Day themed items.

Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about each of these lovely group gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

Safira 

This cute cropped top with it’s pink bustier is too cute for words. I like the denim look to the bustier and the hand-drawn look to the hearts. It is the latest group gift at Safira. The top comes in a handful of sizes in the color shown. To get yours (and take advantage of the wall of group gifts) you’ll need to join the Safira group which has a join fee of 50 linden.

Be Mine Valentine

Be Mine Valentine

Valentine’s Day what? Hey Fab Free, who says you gotta wait for Valentine’s Day for some romance? I say why not take advantage of all the sexy and romantic Valentine’s Day themed freebies and cheapies out there and make some memories. This saucy heart printed nighty is the February group gift at Chic Moda. I also picked up this sweet Valentine’s themed champagne bucket set by Follow Us on the Marketplace. After all, what would a romantic evening be without a little bubbly? Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and you can peep the credits at the end.

Chic Moda

I think this little nighty by Chic Moda is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. It also happens to be a recent group gift. I love the little red hearts. They are perfect for the up-coming holiday. This sultry little number comes in multiple sizes, and has a hud that allows you to hide or show the built in panties. The Chic Moda has a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy

Follow Us

Champagne is almost mandatory for Valentines Day. This set by Follow Us is just 29 linden on the Marketplace for a limited time. I especially like that this champagne bucket has The Beatles lyrics “All you need is love, Love is all you need” scrawled across it in pretty lettering. The bucket is not only decorative, it acts as a dispenser as well. The glasses have an animated hold pose. Also, there are rez-able decorative glasses. Pick yours up on the Marketplace while this great price is still available.
