The dazzle & sparkles of the holiday season are beautiful. All of the party clothes are gorgeous and such fun to wear. The gifts are plentiful and mostly free; you’ll definitely find something you like.
I have more Shop & Hop goodies to show you today. After all that shopping and looking fab I needed a bit of down time. I think I still look quite fab, snuggly and cozy in this free sweater and free pants.
Mossu‘s gift is the pretty Esther Sweater and I paired it with these cool Christmas print pants courtesy of Zoom. Both of these are free at Shop & Hop. The pants are fitted for Maitreya only.
Sweater sizes are:

Remember to take time for yourself during this holiday season!

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Thank you so much for being here. I cannot even handle how close to Christmas we are! I’m also finding myself both excited and overwhelmed by all the giftiness (yes I know that’s not a word) around the grid. There are so many events and advents and hunts, it’s a lot! For this post I picked up free gifts from Mister Razzor, BONDI, and IDTTY at Access, and a fun Marketplace find by The Bold Llama. Keep reading for all the details!
I think it goes without saying that Mister Razzor is a favorite tattoo shop of mine. At the current round of Access, Mister Razzor has the cutest holiday face tattoo for free. It has pretty little snowflakes near your eyes, and says “let it go.” This tattoo comes in a BOM tattoo layer only. It also comes in white as well as black. You’ll need to join the free-to-joinAccess event group to get this and the many other free gifts. Just look for the blue gift boxes at each vendor booth.
These unisex wire-frame glasses are the freeAccess group gift by BONDI at the Access event. The glasses have resize scripts, and include a color change hud with 4 preset choices for the frames and 4 the metal parts of the frames. The same hud also allows you to adjust the opacity of the lenses.
Also at Access, is this lovely matte lip-color by IDTTY. This lipstick shade is one of 4 subtle matte shades in the free “Real Love Collection” gift by IDTTY. This lipstick giftset comes in appliers for Catwa, Genus, and Lelutka heads only.
The Bold Llama
Lastly, I couldn’t resist this cute holiday top by The Bold Llama that I stumbled across on the Marketplace. This cute tank-top is just 25 linden, and if “cheeky” doesn’t suit you, you’ll find quite a few other choices like “Queen” and “Lit.” Each of these fun festive tops comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it can be worn by classic avatars.
Don’t worry little one, I will keep you safe and warm. I’ll also keep myself cute at warm thanks to a few free group gifts at FaMESHed. If you’ve not made it over to FaMESHed yet, it’s well worth it to go. You may have seen the posts Aline has done featuring some of the many gifts at FaMESHed. I also recently showed the FaMESHed gift by Cae. If not, I’ll link them below. For this post I am featuring the freeFaMESHed group gifts by Luas and Limerence. FaMESHed runs until December 27th, and the required event group is free to join.
FaMESHed Group – secondlife:///app/group/8ae32885-b174-3f8e-4a70-5df905f8f93a/about
My full outfit, minus the shoes and socks, is a freeFaMESHed group gift by Luas. The scarf, sweater, and skirt are all included in this fantastic free gift. Each piece comes in the pink/black color shown with several size choices. I really love the warm tones to the shades of pink in this outfit. The extra long sleeves I’ve come to associate with Luas are also so cute and cozy for winter.
This tousled chin-length hairstyle by Limerence is also free at FaMESHed with the event group tag. It comes in rigged and unrigged versions for easy fitting, and with or without the delicate shimmery snowflakes. This free hairstyle comes in a brown color pack with several brunette tones.

I hope you’ve had a very happy weekend Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here. The Jail event is having an anniversary round. You I’m sure saw Aline’s post “Put on Your Weekend Pants” featuring a few of the free event gifts in honor of their anniversary. Today I have a few more I’m excited to share with you. Each of the gifts at The Jail are free, you just need to wear the event group tag. The group is free to join, and I’ll put a link below that you can copy and paste into in-world local chat to join the group.
The Jail Event Group: secondlife:///app/group/e9238129-1407-9f47-3533-35ec703bfcbf/about
The vest style top I am wearing is part of the freeJail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.
The tattoo I am wearing is by Hanz. It’s also free at The Jail, just don’t forget that group tag. I’m happy to say that this tattoo is unisex. It comes tattoo comes in appliers and BOM layers so anyone should be able to wear it, classic or mesh.
Lastly, the choker I have on is a freeJail event gift by Madame Noir. It’s called the Elektra necklace and it has a cool metal clasp in the front. It also has resize scripts, and a color change hud. The hud has several solid color choices for the leather/fabric and different metallic options for the metal bits.
Anyone who tells you Time Travel is a science, and not an artform, is a scoundrel. It is and must be both. You need to be able to finesse your way through multiple realities and get the calculations correct. For now, I’m going to slice through the curtain of time and get myself out of this Jurassic nightmare before one of these giant prehistoric lizards decides I might be a delicious meal. Safe travels my fellow voyagers.
The Engine Room
Purely by happenstance I visited the Engine Room event. Lo and behold, it’s an Anniversary round! You guessed it, that means free gifts. Lots and lots of amazing free gifts. The theme is steampunk and the gifts are free with the Second Life Syndicate group tag. The group is free to join. I got all of them, and would have loved to show all of them to you, but that would just be tedious for everyone. Instead, I put together my Time Traveler look using the Engine Room gifts from Eudora3D, Apricot Paws, Wicca’s Originals, Deadly Nightshade, and Lux Aeterna.
Second Life Syndicate group: secondlife:///app/group/d35c55f4-6a4f-eb2d-1dae-af9665f6f4cd/about
I think this hat from Eudora3D is possibly one of the coolest hats I’ve ever owned, and it’s absolutely free. The Witch Hunter hat is incredibly detailed. It comes with a hud that lets you change the metal parts gold or silver, and adjust the position and size of the hat. You’ll find this freebie waiting for you at the Engine Room event. Don’t forget the Second Life Syndicate tag.
My very Victorian-like blouse by Apricot Paws is also free at the Engine Room. It fits beautifully and I love the subtle pinstripes. This shirt comes in a tucked and a not tucked version for multiple wear options. This gift also has a hud that lets you adjust the color of the bow, the buttons, and metal bits.
The Havoc Mask is the freeEngine Room Anniversary gift by Wicca’s Originals. This super cool accessory is unisex in that it comes in a male sizes as well as a female size. The details are awesome, and it fit me perfectly, however there are resize scripts in the masks.
I think this clockwork mechanism halo piece by Deadly Nightshade is so cool. Not only does it look cool with all the great details, it also has moving parts. The pieces attach separately so that they move independent of each other. That also means they can be worn all together or separately. This freeEngine Room gift was the initial inspiration for creating a Time Traveling character.
The golden scalpel and scissors by Lux Aeterna together are the first Engine Room gift I unpacked and knew I had to do something with them. They are gorgeous aesthetically, and have a macabre element that I really like. They also have these really awesome bento hold poses, that are just icing on the cake. You’ll find them for free at the Engine Room. Again, don’t forget to join the free Second Life Syndicate group and wear the group tag to get the gifts.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.
That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.
I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.
The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the freeVanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.
I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.
Clever & Cool
Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.
MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.
Man Cave Anniversary Gifts
When on vacation no matter how short you gotta look the part. My outfit is composed of Man Cave Event Anniversary gifts. I couldn’t pass up sharing them with you guys. The black sailor hat is from a store I never heard of before. Honor, it’s a cool looking brimless cap with a nylon look. The slick short barely shown Roy Hairbase is from Not Found. My head skin is Drake by Stray Dog in tone 04. The sweet lined cut bread is from OKARA. The trending porn stache Mustache is from none other than Mister Razzor. This cool oval shades are made by Decision and come with a colour changing HUD for all the parts. This nautical type necklace, well choker comes by way of Lapointe & Bastchild it’s unisex. Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.
I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.
I know by now your eyeing my shorts. These well textured colored summery shorts are named Issac, and they are made by Cubura. A great addition to your summer look. Lastly my brightly colored sneakers are from Betrayal. You get a fatpack of colors for both men and women. Teleport on over to The Man Cave Event, join the free group, and click them beer cans. You have until July 11th to grab them all. It looks like sleeping beauty is finally waking up. I’m gonna go enjoy the rest of our retreat. Catch y’all later.

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 freeACCESS 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!
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-joinACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.
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.
Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the freeACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.
All the rings I am wearing are part of the freeACCESS 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.
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.
Finally, the top that ties this all together is the freeACCESS 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!

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.
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.
These cool blocky glasses are the freeTres 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.

Who doesn’t like gachas and gifts?! The Imaginarium has started and you’ll find both at this event. I picked up several of the free Imaginairum event group gifts, and played the Petite Mort gacha machine, so I’ve got a lot to share with you. Let’s start with the free stuff!
Imaginairum Group Gifts
All the gifts at the Imaginarium are free. They also require the Imaginarium group, which is free to join. While wearing the group tag, just click the gift box at each participating booth. Most of the boxes are purple. A few of the designers recolored/textured the package.
Many designers put out a free gift, Why Not? put out 2 free gifts for this round of Imaginarium. First, a beautiful piece of wall art with the following written in pretty script: Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with. I’ve heard that saying before, and it always makes me smile. The 2nd gift from Why Not? is a cute primary colored bird house complete with grass and flowers for your yard. Why Not? has 2 booths at the Imaginarium (they are right next to each other). You’ll find 1 free gift at each booth.
Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine
The Imaginarium gift by Kaya’s is the adorable armoire with the wood cutout tree and blackbird. It comes in the single color version shown. The fun part of this cute freebie is that the cabinet doors, and the drawers all open! Look for this free gift at the booth with the “Vooma Vaccum” gacha.
The freeImaginarium gift by Inkme is a cute little stool with a mandala pattern on the cushion. This stool has 4 individual sit poses, and can be copied so you can rez out multiples. The pose menu also has an “adjust” option as well so you can adjust your pose.
The last of the freeImaginarium gifts for this post comes from RatzCatz. The cute decorative jars with pretty pastel eggs inside are perfect for getting ready for spring and the Easter holiday. Again, don’t forget you’ll need the freeImaginarium group tag.
I am admittedly partial to Petite Mort’s gachas, it’s true. I just can’t help it when each of these furniture and decor gacha sets are so beautiful. This livingroom gacha set at Imaginarium is called “Native Spirit” and it has an elegantly comfortable southwestern feel. There are 12 total items, including 1 Rare, and an event exclusive which is awarded after 20 pulls. This gacha will cost you just 50 linden per play. The exclusive is a shabby chic table and chairs set. The sofa and armchair both have single sit poses, as do the ottomans, and the metal accent chair. I’ve included the gacha key for this gorgeous set below, and a full list of items in the credits. Have fun Fab Free!
