The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

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

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Miss Mermaid


Mermaid

Down in the depths of the ocean! Or perhaps just under the water at Mermaid Cove, that’s where I found this fun mermaid gacha by NYNE that I am excited to share with you. I also picked up a free group gift by Sweet Thing, and a free gift by Shiny Stuffs while swimming through the underwater shopping at Mermaid Cove.

NYNE Miss Mermaid Gacha

Mermaid Cove is definitely a cool shopping event, well worth the visit just to see all the fanciful underwater scenery. For this mermaid themed event NYNE put out a colorful mermaid themed gacha that is just 69 linden per pull. **Please be sure that if you play this gacha you play for the size/fit you want.** I played the Slink Hourglass option so my mermaid tail and starfish would fit my Slink Hourglass body. The rare tale comes with mermaid animations that seemed to work when walking, but better when flying. I’ll include a gacha key for this Mermaid Cove gacha by NYNE below.

To get yours head over to the Sweet Thing stall at Mermaid Cove and click the gift vendor while wearing your Sweet Thing group tag.

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

You Know Everything


You Know Everything

Hello Fab Free’rs, this post is going to be a little bit different in that it’s all about the new male head gift at Akeruka, and a new group gift couples pose at WRONG rather than ladies fashion. Thankfully I have this handsome gentleman of mine here to help. The Akeruka head wouldn’t look even half as good on me as it does on him! Keep reading, and I’ll share more about each of these fantastic group gifts.

That face! The Akeruka Clay head is the latest group gift for Akeruka group members. This male head is a full Akeruka Deluxe mesh bento head complete with animations. Also included with this gift is the Akeruka skin in multiple tones with facial hair options, and body appliers for Slink (Omega), Signature (Omega), and Belleza bodies. The Akeruka group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. To get yours you will need to wear your Akeruka group tag, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. This gift will be available until July 6th. After July 6th, the Clay head will be for sale at the regular price.

The pose Blue so patiently sat in with me while I took this photo is a free group gift at WRONG. There are actually several group gifts at WRONG, and the store group is free to join. I like the potential narrative this pose lends itself to. The pose is named “You Know Everything” which I also liked. It’s true, Blue pretty much knows everything. This free group gift at WRONG includes individual his and hers poses, along with a cool modern chair to pose in. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad for this pose by WRONG below so you can get the full effect.

A Summertime Nude


Summertime Nude

Hello Fab Free! Thank you for being here. I’ve got a sultry little group gift dress to share with you from Beautiful Hustler. I should point out that there needs to be an emphasis on the word little. I’ll include the ad for the dress so that you can see the slightly scandalous low cut to the back of the dress. Also, I think the nude shade of the dress is quite soft and feminine.
