Ready for the snow

FabFree Post: NYC

Ready for snow!

It’s time we get some snow where I am in New England! I love the moment after it stops snowing and everything is coated with white snow or ice, no one around, and you can hear nothing but your own breathing. That is my favorite moment, it makes you pause and appreciate all the hustle and bustle of the season.

So what is your favorite winter moment?

Apple Fall is having an amazing sale where EVERYTHING in their shop is L$50 or less! I was able to snag quite a few freebies from their in-world shop, which by now is super hard to get into so get those TP Hammers ready and set. Mostly everything in their outlet is FREE with a few exceptions.

Make sure you grab the shop group if you plan to shop in-world because you’ll get a great deal on top of that low price! The lowest price I saw besides FREE was L$38, so use that group tag!! There is no set date of when this deal will end, I assume very soon so get there asap!

Still Life

Still Life
Hello there Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve been having a good week thus far. I’m happy to be inching near the weekend myself. I am also happy to be here sharing some awesome free group gifts from ChicModa and Disorderly with you. I love them, I hope you will also.

ChicModa

I love the deep shade of violet the group gift dress at ChicModa has. The style of the dress is sweet and summery, but the color is all fall. It also includes a hud to let you show or hide the panties that are part of the dress. The ChicModa group is free to join at this time, so don’t wait! Also there are new Lucky Letter board gifts, and previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

ChicModa November 2020 Group Gift

Disorderly

This furniture and décor set by Disorderly is absolutely gorgeous. It also happens to be one of several free group gifts available. The set includes a group of paintings for the wall, a set that leans against the wall, and a side-table with books, candles, an urn, and a skull. Each of these items are low-prim and highly detailed. Disorderly’s store group is also free to join at this time.

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner

It has been getting warmer in my part of the world, and for once I am ready, if not eagerly anticipating the summer. The promise of warm sunny days put me in the mood to add some brightness and summer color to my space here in Second Life. My new cozy little reading corner, also known as Oscar’s favorite place to hoard his tennis ball collection, is thanks to Happy Weekend items from Muniick, and free Stay at Home Club gifts from ChiC Buildings, [QE Home], Kisetsu, and Eclectica Curiosities.

Muniick 

This weekend only Muniick has this sideboard table and hanging picture set out for just 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend sales. The sideboard has 3 color options, and the photo frames have 2 color choices. Each piece is just 3 land impact and can be set out together or separately. Plus, the pretty floral prints feel like summer.

ChiC

The love a good built-in. This bookshelf from Chic Buildings with the sliding ladder has that built-in look and comes in 2 colors. There’s also an empty version without the books so you can add your own items to the shelves, and the ladder is optional. To get your copy, head over to ChiC Buildings and pick up this free Stay at Home Club gift. Hurry, the Stay at Home Club gift at ChiC changes often!

Kisetsu

The cute pastel Japanese tea set is a free Stay at Home Club gift at Kisetsu. This gift will dispense tea, and includes a display tea cup along with the tea set. I think it looks perfect on the sideboard from Muniick, and now I can have a nice warm green tea any time I want.

Eclectica Curiosities 

I really like the soft buttery yellow of this armchair by Eclectica Curiosities. It seems warm and inviting. The chair along with the side table and lamp are also free Stay at Home gifts. The lamp can be turned off and on via touch, and the chair has several solo sit animations.

[QE Home]

The rug, and the pile of throw pillows I stashed in the sideboard table are together the free Stay at Home Club gift from [QE Home]. The rug and pillows each have a few color/pattern choices with a bright bohemian kind of feel to them. The pillows can also be sized via their touch menu. I think they add a pretty pop of color.

Perfectly Pastel

Perfectly Pastel

Hey there Fab Free, I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes self care includes a little romance. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking anything tawdry. I mean ambiance, atmosphere, create a place where you feel peaceful, pampered, and can relax. I put on a pretty but comfortable pajama set, lit some candles, and found a soft squishy pillow to snuggle. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, especially during these trying times.

To create my romantic atmosphere I picked up the free Dreamland Designs gift at Gachaland. The Dreamland Designs gift is this beautiful display of lit candles, pink flowers, and petals. The display also has a lovely particle effect to add to the romantic vibes. This squishy pillow by Pillows I’m holding is another free gift at Gachaland. It has a bento hold pose which also worked nicely with my AO. Lastly, my anime-esque girly pink pigtail hairstyle is a free gift at Gachaland by Ayasha. It comes in the single pastel pink color shown. The Gachaland event group is free to join, and you’ll need the group tag to get these and several other free gifts. Just look for the gift boxes (most of them are purple) outside the booths at the Gachaland event.

That Cabin Life

That Cabin Life

Hey Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Did you know there’s a Toilet Roll Hunt happening at Dench Designs? There’s also two new freebies out at Trompe Loeil as part of the “Stay at Home” campaign. I’m super excited to tell you all about these awesome freebies, so keep reading!

Dench Designs

Toilet paper is a hot topic right now, for a number of reasons that no one wants to discuss here. However, to help lighten the mood and give us all a little something to do Dench Designs put together a free Toilet Roll Hunt. There are 10 toilet paper rolls hidden throughout the store. Each roll is free and contains a furniture or décor gift. Once you’ve teleported to Dench Designs, click the TP Hunt sign for a notecard with hints to the location of all 10 TP rolls. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Trompe Loeil

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the “Stay at Home” gifts popping up all over the grid. Trompe Loeil has continued their participation and has two new gifts out for free in honor of staying at home. This week the free gifts at Trompe Loeil are a highly detailed A-frame cabin and a set of camp chairs with PG poses. All you need to do to pick up these awesomely generous gifts is head over to Trompe Loeil and purchase them for zero linden.

Boho Christmas

Boho Christmas

There’s something about this more subdued Christmas setting that really speaks to me. It feels calm and cozy/ As much as I like the bright and colorful classic Christmas décor, I like this take on Christmas decorations a lot too. Most of the pieces pictured above are from a free set by Trompe Loeil that you can pick up at FaMESHed. The set includes several pieces, which I’ll list below. The furniture has PG single and couples animations in addition to color/texture choices in the touch menu. To get your copy, just join the FaMESHed group (it’s free) and click the gift box at the Trompe Loeil booth at FaMESHed.

I Like You a Latte


I Like You a Latte

Sometimes there’s no place I’d rather be than settled into a comfy spot enjoying the crisp autumn air (assuming it ever reaches my part of the world hah) and a nice hot spiced latte. Especially when my latte is just as happy to see me as I am to drink it! My happy-faced latte is the September group gift at Andika. The dress I have on is a group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by Revelation. I hope you love these fabulous free finds as much as I do. From here either scroll down for the credits, or keep reading for a bit more information about each freebie.

Andika

I love a good latte, and the September group gift at Andika is the sweetest latte around. The gift includes 2 beautifully detailed latte cups with smiling froth faces. The Andika group is free to join, so these sweet lattes can bring some brightness to your fall décor for free. You’ll find them waiting at the Andika store, just wear your group tag and click the gift vendor.

Revelation

The cute red dress I have on is a free group gift by Revelation available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. It’s a fairly short dress so I chose to pair it with some cute leggings. The dress comes in several sizes, and has a texture/color change hud with graphic and solid color options. The Fab Free group is free to join, so this casual dress is absolutely free. To make this gift easier to pick up I’ve included a photo of the gifts at Revelation. The Fab Free gift is the last gift on the right.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Uber Elegant


Uber Elegant

If you haven’t made it to Uber yet, I highly suggest going. I know we’ve shown several of the fashion related gifts here on the blog from this birthday round of Uber. So today I thought I’d show a few of the furniture and décor freebies. There are actually quite a few décor items, and some furniture pieces to be had for free at Uber. I picked a handful of the ones I felt went well together. Keep reading for a little info about each one.

Foxwood

The adorable purple Love birds in their gilded cage are the free Uber Bday gift by Foxwood. I can’t get over how cute they are. The gift includes the caged pair shown, and a little solo Love bird that will perch on your shoulder when worn, or wherever you place it.

Di’Cor

The gorgeous wall clock is the free gift at Uber from Di’Cor. Not only does it look elegant, it actually tells the time, SLT of course. It also has that mashup I like of retro and modern styles together.

Llorisen

The lacquered console table is the free Happy Birthday Uber gift by Llorisen. It has a sleek modern look that pairs well with most décor. It also has a color change menu when touched with 5 solid color choices.

Kraftwork

The free gift at Uber by Kraftwork is the sweet little pop-up book sitting on the table. I love the playful colors. It says this is a “children’s” popup book, but I like it as cute décor for a lived-in home look too.

Second Spaces

The pale teal file boxes are the free Uber gift by Second Spaces. The gift includes these pretty little file boxes in the 3 side by side version shown, a group of 5, and a stack of 3. Also, these office décor file boxes are copy so you can set out multiples.

P.S. The backdrop used for this photo is a group gift at Foxcity. The Foxcity group has a join fee of 550 linden and there are quite a few group gift poses and backdrops available. 

P.S.S. I mentioned this before, but I want to mention it again. One of the huge number of gifts at Uber does require the Uber event group tag. I cannot recall which one. The Uber group is however free to join. Happy Shopping!
