Live Your Best Life


Living Our Best Life

I think I’m determined to visit every seaside spot on the grid. To say I am afflicted with wanderlust would be an understatement. This time Blue discovered a beautiful little slice of paradise where we could spend the days playing in the water and the evenings relaxing deckside watching the sun go down.

In preparation for a our excursion we picked up a few of the many free group gifts at Amias. These plush towels are an absolutely must-have. They come in a his and hers version and include a texture hud with quite a few choices to pick from. They are free with the Amias group tag. Coincidentally the Amias group is also free to join. Blue happens to be wearing another of the free group gifts at Amias. His leather bracelet also comes in male and female sizes, and has a color change hud. It’s always cool to find freebies that include options for male and female avatars. Have fun everyone!

Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis), Signature Alice, MeshBody Legacy

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Summer Sun

Summer Sun

Yellow, it’s a vibe for me this summer. I just want to be warm, happy, and someplace sunny! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I know I cannot complain, especially not when I have the awesome Fab Free community to be part of. Truly, I am thankful. For this look I picked up both the top, and the pants for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all the what, where, and how.

Aquara 

I was honestly surprised at how much I like this free top only because until now Aquara is not a brand I was familiar with and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s super cute on, and the textures are really nice. This halter top is a free group gift, and the group is free to join at this time. It comes with a color/texture hud that has 8 choices. It also has a separate hud for tinting the top any color you want. There are a few things I wanted to note about the packaging and the hud. First, the package says “Maitreya” on it, but don’t worry there are more sizes. Second, the color/texture hud when first attached will show you the Aquara Marketplace page. I was confused at first! lol There’s a tab on the side however that when clicked will take you to the color/texture choices.

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

Aurora’s Closet 

These capri style jeans with rainbow pockets are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Aurora’s Closet. I wanted something new and cute to go with my halter top, and these capris fit the bill. These free denim pants come in black and in blue for extra versatility. Overall I was pretty pleased with these. They are a great addition to my closet and you can’t beat the price!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), EBody (Classic, Curvy), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Cutest Thing You’ve Ever Seen

Coming soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! I have a really cute hunt and news about a free group join at Pink Cream Pie to share with you today. I will also be talking about two fabulous new group gifts at EscalateD.

Pink Cream Pie Free VIP Group Join

To start out, Pink Cream Pie ‘s VIP group is currently free to join for a limited time. This free join has been available for over a week, so make sure that you go grab this group ASAP! Included in the VIP group is access to all of the Pink Cream Pie past gifts. There are three years’ worth of past gifts upstairs (2017-2019), plus all the gifts from 2020. In addition to the group gifts, you can head over to the mystery gift giver at the front of the store and earn some prizes- even some free store credit. The gifts are super high quality and mega cute, so make sure you steal this great group while you can. Having the VIP group will also help you get the hunt items at their pride hunt discounted 100% in store credit!

PCP Pride Hunt

Pink Cream Pie is  having a pride hunt at their store until the end of June. You are looking for four little rainbow Pie guys (pictured in the vendor image below) hidden in the store, and inside each hunt object will be a hoodie, a top, leggings and sneakers. Each item is a special edition pride fatpack which comes in a variety of patterns and textures. Trust me, this is the cutest outfit ever when you put it all together. Each hunt prize cost 99L a piece,  but you will get 100% discount in store credit for every hunt item you purchase- as long as you have your Pink Cream Pie tag active as you purchase the hunt objects. Alternatively, you can purchase hunt items with the store credit you win from the mystery giver.

Juniper & Candy

I am also wearing two amazing new group gifts at EscalateD. This is the Juniper hair, and I am using the Candy Universal HUD to get the beautiful gradient colour in the hair. Both the hair and the colour hud are new gifts at EscalateD‘s VIP group, which costs 99L to join.

Have fun finding this cute outfit, Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Skin Within

Happy Friday Fab Free Fam! I think the summer is a natural time to make yourself over, if you’re so inclined. Things feel fresh, bright, and new this time of year and I think a lot of us want to feel that way too. I love the infinite ability Second Life gives us to personalize, create, and recreate our individual looks. For this post I’m happy to tell you about a sweet little skin shop called Skin Within.

At Skin Within you’ll find female skins, and eyes to enhance your avatar. What makes this skin shop a little different is that their focus is on Bakes on Mesh (BOM) layer skins. They also offer tattoo layer makeup options, brow choices, and several skin tones. The eyes at Skin Within are Lelutka and Omega appliers.

The Store Group 

Skin Within has a free-to-join store group. Group members will get a 20% discount on purchases made while wearing the group tag. There is also a current free group gift skin. Her name is Mila and she includes BOM layers, and tattoo layer makeup options.

Fab Free Group Gift 

The free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Skin Within is a full set of eye appliers. The set includes 12 “Dreamy” eye choices in Lelutka and Omega appliers. The Fab Free group will always be free to join. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Feed Your Soul

Feed Your Soul

So I’d been having one of “those” days. I’m sure that you know the type I am talking about. No major tragedies, just a lot of little things not quite going the way they should and wreaking havoc on your mood and the plans you’d made. Yep, definitely a Thoseday. Still, I managed to find some zen, take a moment to enjoy some music, a purely indulgent latte, and the company of this silly orange fur-ball. While the day might have been a mess, just that moment and a few freebies from Vision and e.marie managed to salvage my mood. I’d call that a silver lining.

ViSion

Now, about those freebies I mentioned. My bandeau top and cargo pants are both from Vision. I picked them both up at the Vision stop at the Second Life 17th Birthday Shop & Hop. The top is the free SL17B gift, while the pants are a free Vision group gift. You’ll need to wear the Vision group tag (there’s a group joiner there) for the pants. The Vision group also happens to be free to join at this time. The top has a texture change hud with 5 choices. The cargo pants come in the color shown with a hud that lets you change the color of the drawstring and metal parts.

Bandeau Top Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy
Cargo Pant Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

e.marie

My latte with it’s fluffy whipped topping and cute little particle effect is by e.marie. You’ll find it waiting for you at the e.marie stop at the SL17B Shop and Hop event. It’s their free Second Life Birthday gift. The latte is copy, and has a bento hold animation. If you’re like me, after cruising around the enormous Shop and Hop shopping event you’ll be thankful for the sweet pick-me-up!

Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

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.

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Guilty Pleasures

Pride V2

 

One of my favorite guilty pleasures in second life is free VIP group joins. Oh how I love them, even if I am always panicking to figure out which groups to join and leave to make openings for the best groups. Today I’ll be showing you some amazing gifts and gift cards you can get from these groups you can join currently for free!

Get me some Sintiklia!

Sintiklia has graciously made their VIP group free to join for a limited time. This group normally has a 250L fee, and there is an insane amount of amazing hair and makeup gifts. This one is certainly a keeper! Right now I have the dreamy hair on and it certainly is dreamy…

Arcane Spellcaster did it again

Arcane Spellcaster is known for their generous gift card giveaways. Right now the group is free to join and there is a 250L gift card available until June 21. Stay in the group too, as they will be releasing a 500L gift card later this month from June 22-24th, but by the 22nd the group will have a join fee. With my free gift card I purchased the Telsa shorts, which only cost 175 L for the fatpack.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya & Isis)
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Altamura

[b]elle is beautiful

b[elle] is a great designer who always has lovely monthly gifts out- called his n’ hers- two gifts which are available each month of the year for members of the b[elle] group. The group is currently free to join. I love the top for ladies this month; it has the cutest spring flowers pattern on it.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

xx
