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.

Afternoon Naps

FabFree Post: Afternoon Naps

Afternoon Naps

After such a rainy weekend here, with loads of real-life chores, I plan on spoiling myself today with a lovely afternoon nap! There is nothing better than a blissful quiet empty house with nothing to do. So today’s post is all about this comfortable bed I found from the Stay At Home Club (everything is free with no group needed *some items may require a L$1 payment but it is refunded right back) This bed set from Inner Demons is modern with an industrial flair. The set comes with Bed, Sidetable, Dresser, Decor Vase, Ottoman, and Carpet.

I found this sexy Green Lingerie at [Marquesse] and snagged it free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Group! I was in heaven when I spotted this find because well you should know by now I’m a fan of Green!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Physique

So if you do nothing else today, spoil yourself with a lil afternoon nap!

Lots of love,

Hello There Fab Free, I trust we are all staying safe at home as much as we can. Speaking of staying at home, the Second Life Stay at Home Club has been a bright spot in otherwise dark times. I’m thankful we can all socialize and spend time together in SL while we are being socially distant in RL. I’m equally excited to be able to share with you more amazing freebies thanks to the generosity of so many designers in Second Life. Today’s post features gifts from Normandy and Hilted.

Normandy

The striped jumpsuit I’m wearing is the free “Stay at Home” gift from Normandy. It fits like a glove. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the beach, workout, whatever, you’ll look amazing. It comes with a color change hud that lets you change the jumper’s main color, and the color of the straps/hem.

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

Hilted

Let’s get lit-up. The free “Stay at Home” gift from Hilted is this industrial style futuristic furniture sit with vibrant blue neon lighting. The set includes a chair, sofa, table, and tabletop décor. All the pieces are copy/mod, so you can rez multiples. I know my photo is dark, but I wanted to show how this furniture really glows. I feel like this could be part of so many cool settings. A million possibilities come to mind. Don’t miss out on this striking furniture set at Hilted.

Returning & Retiring Goodies at Death Row Designs

Returning & Retiring @ DRD

Hey, Fab Free! I wanted to make a quick post to let you know about an offer currently available at Death Row Designs (DRD). Lots of past group gifts await for free, so read on, Fab Free!

“Returning” Gifts

Currently, all of DRD’s past group gifts are available for free. The store has a sale going on right now which lasts until March 18. During the sale, the store has returned all of their past gifts for a limited time. There are 45 gifts in total- so a few years’ worth of gifts to be claimed. To get the gifts join the Death Row Designs group for free and click the rows of vendors which are stacked at the back of the room by the entrance of the store. You will also find recent month’s gifts to the left of the entrance. From what I understand, these gifts with be retiring from the store permanently when the sale is over so you will want to get over to DRD quickly!

Eclectic Decor

There are some very unique and interesting items in this batch of group gifts. Included in the bunch are decor items, accessories, hats, and jewelry. I have displayed some of the decor gifts in my living room above. The quality of the mesh in these items is stunning, so grab these while you can! Again, these gifts will be retiring soon so go quickly to snatch these up!

Have a fun weekend, Fab Free!

Free and Native Spirit

Native Imaginarium

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.

Why Not?

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.

Inkme

The free Imaginarium 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.

RatzCatz

The last of the free Imaginarium 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 free Imaginarium group tag.

Petite Mort

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!

Crystals, Moons & Sparkles

Crystals, Moons and Sparkles

Good Afternoon, Fab Free! Today I am showing off four gifts, which, like my last post, are a number of witchy gifts you can grab now! Keep reading to find out about how to get a crystal group gift gem necklace, a free moon face tattoo, a free top, and some free vibrant BOM eyeshadow!

Another Necklace from Addams!

Addams has kindly gifted its group members yet another gorgeous necklace, which accompanies their latest release, Pheobe. The Addams group costs 19 Linden to join, but it is well worth the rewards for this small fee, including a number of past gifts which are available at the store now.

This necklace is a full fatpack and you can change the colours of the stones, chain and body. It is simply stunning with the detail that went into its creation. I love the crystals and stones options in this necklace in particular. Crystal, gem and stone jewelry always makes me swoon and I am addicted in real life, so I obviously needed to wear this necklace as soon as I saw it! Phoebe is very long, so you will need a low-hanging top or dress to match this necklace, which is where Maya comes in.

Maya

Asteria’s newest group gift is a crop top fatpack, and it is awesome! This is definitely a top I can imagine myself wearing a lot- it is cute and it hugs your curves well! You can get this gift by joining the free Asteria group. It comes in several colours, which you can change via HUD. Make sure that you grab all the past group gifts when you visit Asteria. You can find them in the group gift section at the inside entrance of the store, and there is also a larger gift area outside in front of the store. Go crazy, Fab Free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Legacy

Playing with BOM

I also have two BOM freebies I am wearing, both of which are completely free. The Horror has a current Group Gift designed for members who wear Genus and Lelutka Heads, but it is a BOM makeup. It is an alluring, yet mysterious, crescent moon face tattoo. Simply join The Horror‘s free group to pick up this little gift. The final touch to my makeup palette is a dramatic eyeshadow applier from Zibska. It comes in several colours and as it is BOM, it can be applied to any head that is compatible with bakes on mesh . It is simply striking and so sparkly!  The gift is free, no group needed, so pick it up near the landing area of the store!

I hope you enjoy these free finds, Fab Free!

Cheers,

Xx

Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentine’s Day Kitty Style

 

Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentines' Day Kitty Style

I know it’s a bit early for Valentine’s day, and some of you may be either super excited about V-day or dreading it, but this group gift from Candy Kitten has gotten me in the mood for love and romance! It’s the “call me baby dress” with the “LOVE” HUD made especially for Candy Kitten VIP members. It includes patterns of hearts, kisses and pink polka dot patterns- it’s perfect for the upcoming month of February. Right now, you can grab this group gift in their main store, as well as the wonderfully cute “Dolly Heels” I am wearing and the simple panties fatpack I am hiding underneath! The heels and the panties also come with a colour hud, which you can use to change the colour of the frills and the bows on the heels. 

Candy Kitten VIP

Candy Kitten has wonderful offers, group gifts and giftcards that rotate regularly. Their VIP group costs 200 Linden to join, but the perks are totally worth it! Group members have access to exclusive gifts, gift cards which are given out on holidays and special occasions, and a weekly 1,000 L raffle board.  As the group gifts regularly change in the Candy Kitten group, go quickly to grab these gifts and make sure to regularly check the group’s notices for future freebies!

Sleepy Kitty

I’m also snuggled up on the new bed I got from Merak as a group gift, which you can claim for free with their free group. The bed is available in both adult and PG options to meet your needs. I’m a happy kitty curled up in my bed with these finds!

Have fun freebie hunting, Fab Free!

Christmas Cheer

Holiday Cheer

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been full of holiday cheer thus far. I managed to find a moment to myself, and took a moment to enjoy some crisp winter air and a spiked eggnog, in a reindeer cup no less. Despite the cold, my drink and my sweater kept me warm, and my holiday manicure kept me feelin’ cute in the moment. Each of those items, sweater, drink, and nail polish are all current group or event gifts. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about them, or you can scroll to the end for full credits. Stay warm Fab Free!

Fashionably Dead 

This cute holiday sweater is the most recent group gift at Fashionably Dead. There are a few past group gifts available as well. The sweater comes in a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 7 color choices. The Fashionably Dead group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

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

Half+Deer

My adorable reindeer cup is the free gift at Shop & Hop by Half+Deer. It has sparkly antlers, and comes with multiple color options. Also, the cup has a drinking animation. I love the cute details. All you need to do to get yours is go to the Half+Deer booth at the Shop & Hop event and click the gift vendor.

ZOZ 

Finally, I love the choice of a holiday manicure that isn’t green or red. My shiny dark grey snowflake manicure is thanks to the free Shop & Hop gift by ZOZ. This applier manicure set has 12 total beautifully glossy colors to choose from, including the traditional green, and red. Like the other Shop & Hop gifts, to get your copy of this free gift just find the ZOZ booth at the event and click the gift vendor.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, ZOZ

The Last Supper

The Last Supper

“Oh Storax Tree! Oh Strax Tree! The Fab Free gift and kitty cats are lovey!” – sang to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree.”

Happy weekend Fab Free! Sometimes the freebies and cheapies you find are worth singing about, you know? It also helps that the Strax Tree name really lends itself well to Christmas carols. haha That said, I did pick up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift, and one of the 10 linden items from The Cart Sale by Storax Tree. Keep reading for more details.

Fab Free Group Gift

First, this fantastic green loveseat is the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members at Storax Tree. This gift is no mod, no transfer, but it is copy so you can rez multiple. It also has resize scripts, and several animated sits, some of which have props. The accent pillow also changes texture when clicked. To get this free gift just head to Storax Tree and click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag. Need a Fab Free group tag? Not to worry, there’s a group joiner at Storax Tree and the group is free to join.

The Cart Sale     

Storax Tree has lots of seriously discounted goodies at The Cart Sale. I could not resist picking up the pair of cats shown in my photo. Titled “Feline Autumn Meeting” these cats are just 10 linden and include a patch of grass and pebbles so they settle nicely into an outdoor or otherwise rustic setting. They can also be purchased in several colors/fur patterns. Like the furniture, these little guys have resize scripts too. Don’t miss out on these, for just 10 linden at The Cart Sale they are too cute to pass up.
