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!


Inner Peace and Quiet

 

Inner Peace and Quiet

Sometimes everyone needs to take a moment and just bask in the quiet. I took some needed time to be alone, be silent, and quiet my mind. It’s part of how I “self care.” Second Life in a lot of ways is part of my self care also. Among many things (and a few people), this blog and the never ending quest for fabulous freebies are therapeutic. They are/it is good for my psyche. For this post I’ve got the latest group gift at gO! to share with you, and free SL16B gifts from Peaches, Libertine, and Ariskea. I hope they’re good for your psyche too.

About The Dress – 

One of the things I’ve always admired about clothing from gO! is the texture. This group gift dress is no different. The detailed textures are such that it’s easy to imagine how this dress would feel, how it would move. The gO! group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. To get your gift simply join the group, then click the gift vendor behind the desk while wearing your group tag.

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

About The Blanket & Décor

I still can’t get over the number of gifts out at the SL16B shopping event. I do wish there were more gifts for the guys, sorry gents, though I did pick up a few great décor items along side the many gifts for the ladies. One of which is this very cute summery blanket with animations, and the froggy incense holder by Peaches. Notably named “The Queen’s Peace”, this gift has single and bento PG couples poses. You’ll find this free SL16B gift by Peaches waiting in the SL16B Tinseled region.

Doesn’t this little owl planter by Ariskea look like it was made to go with the SL16B gift by Peaches? I think it definitely does. This adorable owl comes exactly as shown and is copy, mod, no transfer. You can get yours for free at the Ariskea shop on the SL16B Aurelian region.

Pears are possibly my favorite fruit. This delicious looking plate of pears is the free SL16B gift by Libertine. Along with these perfectly plated pears, the Libertine gift includes a broken plate version with scattered berries and chocolates, and a little note. This free SL16B gift is waiting in the SL16B Aurelian region as well
