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.

#TakeaSelfie

#TakeaSelfie

Helllooo Everybody!! I gotta say I have been thoroughly enjoying all the tropical locations Second Life has to offer. I can’t help but smile when enjoying all the amazing scenery. It’s also perfect for snapping selfies, and before anyone comes at me for being vain I think selfies are all in good fun. I like the idea of celebrating feeling good about yourself. So take some selfies! haha That said, I definitely enjoy this bright colorful look. The top and shorts are a Pride themed group gift at Seniha, while my tattoos, sunglasses, and bubble tea are all free gifts at ACCESS.

Seniha

My cropped top and short shorts are a recent group gift at Seniha in honor of Pride month. The Seniha group is free to join at this time and there are multiple group gifts available. This particular gift includes the top and shorts in several sizes, and a color/texture change hud for the top The hud includes 25+ solid colors for the tee with rainbow/love themed graphics to choose from. The shorts have the rainbow paint smear in the front, and a cute rainbow peace sign on the back pocket.

HXNOR

It’s hot out there and sunglasses are one accessory I can’t get enough of. These bold bright red “Superior” shades are the free ACCESS group gift by HXNOR. The gift requires the free to join ACCESS event group tag. These glasses also happen to be unisex and have resize scripts for easy fitting.

Dappa

Dappa put out these cool mandala-like sleeve tattoos as their free gift at ACCESS. This detailed tattoo spans from shoulder to fingertip is also unisex. It comes in several appliers as well as classic/BOM layers in a faded and fresh look.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Signature, Slink, Omega

Cubic Cherry

Lastly, this yummy bubble taro bubble tea is courtesy of Cubic Cherry. It is their free gift at ACCESS. It comes with a left and a right held version, a mouth attachment, and a display version.

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

Hello hello Fab Free’rs. Something occurred to me today. In my teens I might have worn this look to a party… now I still love the look, but I wore it to the farmer’s market. I think my age might be showing a little bit. lol Either way, I’m enjoying my Sunday and looking super cute doing so. I picked up just about everything for this fun style for free at the current round of ACCESS. It’s a birthday/anniversary round for the event and I have to say it’s the biggest round of ACCESS I have ever seen.

Aline did a gorgeous job of showing off some of the free ACCESS gifts as well in her recent pose “A Little Bit Boujee” so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. As she mentions, ACCESS runs from now until July 8th, and the ACCESS group is free to join so there’s time if the sims are full. There’s the main sim and a cam sim open. Now I have a lot to share with you, so let’s get to it!

Volthair

So technically this is a mens hairstyle from Volthair, but I love it anyway. Even Blue said it looked good, score! It comes in a full fatpack with all the color huds, and a hairbase hud for Catwa and Omega compatible heads. The Fitz hairstyle by Volthair is free at ACCESS. To get your copy you’ll need to join the free-to-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

I feel like this safety pin jewelry set by Fake Society is an updated much cooler version of the plain ol’ safety pins I once wore as jewelry. The set is also free at ACCESS, and it includes earrings (shown) and a septum piercing (not shown) in silver, gold, and black. I would definitely consider this set unisex. The septum piercing I felt was a bit big for my face even with some resizing, which is the only reason I chose to not wear it.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS gift by Cult. They are called the Rou rings and they are sized for Belleza, Slink, Vista, and Maitreya hands. This bento set comes in silver, and gold.

Movement

I couldn’t resist this fun tumbler drink by Movement. I love the little horns on the lid, and purple is a favorite color of mine. This cup has a bento hold pose, and can be sized via touch menu. It’s also another awesome freebie at ACCESS.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS gift by Sixx. This black pushed up crop top with the iridescent looking alien face is super cute. It is also somewhat revealing if you don’t wear something under it. I dug through my closet and pulled out an undershirt by Vinyl to wear with my Sixx alien shirt, and it worked out pretty well I think. Otherwise, be bold and show some skin!

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

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.

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.

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.

Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).

Here are the details!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!
