Hey Gang!

I hope you have begun the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt because there are only a few days left!  (Gosh that flew by!  Didn’t it???) I know Aline has been a crazy woman snapping up gifts left and right!  (not that she *isn’t * a crazy woman when she isn’t hunting, but for that matter all us Fab Free gals are a bit off center and crazy in our own way!)  But that’s why you guys love us!  (you do love us, don’t you??)

Anyhoo!  I’ve been grabbing some more goodies from the hunt too and today I’ve got the very elusive free hunt goody from Masoom.  This shirt is all kinds of wonderful happy colors and I love the lace on the sleeves!  It fits:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Legacy

To get it just look for the little Fab Free colored fairy and click her, she will give you her prize as a reward for finding her.

Stay cool gang!  Happy Hunting!

❤ Arielle

A Free Bike?!

This adorable bike is a free group gift at Noveny. Simply join the free Noveny group, head over to Noveny, pay the vendor 1L and it will be refunded right back to you! It’s cute, and has poses for both friends and singles. You can also display the bike as decor. So cute! You can also pick up the same bike for free at the Beauty Event until May 11th. There are a few free gifts over at that event so go check it out before they are gone in 2 days.

Top and Scrunchies!

My top and the scrunchies I am wearing on my wrists and in my hair are a free FabFree group gift at C!L Boutique. I love the little diamond pattern- it’s a great top that will make a lovely addition to your wardrobe.

  • Physique
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Ocacin

You can pick up these adorable earrings as a free FabFree gift over at Chop Zuey. They come in a whole fatpack of colour options, and like all of these designer’s creations, they are very well made.

Skins and Eyes!

Finally, both the skin and eyes I have on today are free FabFree gifts. You can grab this beautiful skin over at Lucious Skins. This skin is made for Genus heads, but there are a variety of other skins and shapes made for different heads and bodies in their FabFree gift package. You might get lucky and a skin for your head and body will be included in this lovely free gift package.

The free eyes from NinaX are simply gorgeous. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the eyes, but they also include a Lelutka Evolution applier which I tested on my Lelutka head and they are gorgeous. See the vendor photo below for more eye colours included in the Lark eyes.

Witch Please

Witch Please

Hello there Fab Free, I don’t know about you but I am so glad for the weekend. I could use the three R’s, rest, relaxation, and retail therapy! With the retail therapy part in mind, I did wander through The Gacha Life event. They are celebrating the season with free gifts. You may recall Aline’s post “Look for Magic” where she blogged two of the gifts. I picked up the shoes from ZFG as well, along with the t-shirt gift by Grumble, and a cute manicure by Sorry Charlie. Have fun, and happy weekend!

Grumble

The ultimate in comfortable attire, a simple tee. This one by Grumble is free at The Gacha Life event. It has a witch hat graphic and reads “Witch Please” across the front. To get this free gift at Gacha Life you’ll need to join the free event group before clicking the gift box.

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

Sorry Charlie 

Definitely pick up this nail polish applier by Sorry Charlie for free at Gacha Life also. At first glance it appears like a dusty blue polish with a black tip, which would be pretty. However it’s much cooler. The “blue” is actually a bunch of tiny little skulls, like glitter, but skulls!

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Crazy Cat Lady

Crazy Cat Lady

I don’t think anyone really sets out to become a “Crazy Cat Lady.” I think it’s something that sort of claims you. From the first kitten/cat that enters your life, the seed of cat lady-ness (or in some cases, crazy cat guy-dom)  germinates. I also think that from then on other cats know you’re now a “cat person” and they find you. Whether it be a stray kitten meowling for help in the parking lot where you work, or adoption ads from animal shelter pages on social media… they find you. Suddenly you find yourself in this situation, crouching on the floor with several of what you now refer to as your fur babies.

All the kitties aside, I do have some fantastic freebies to share with you. My top is a free group gift by UNA at the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event. My stylish bun is a freebie as well. It’s a free gift at SHEGO. Keep reading for details about both free finds, while I herd these silly cats into the kitchen for some food and water.

UNA

Yes, you read that right. There is an event titled Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It’s geared toward the recent influx of chest sizes choices with some of the female bodies. The important part here is that UNA has a free group gift at the event. This cute top is free to all UNA group members. There’s a group joiner at the IBTC event, and the UNA group is free to join. This top comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with lots of options. There’s also a cool glowing UNA logo on the back of the shirt, and an optional glowing UNA pin that attaches on the front of the shirt.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Petite, Flat, Original), MeshBody Legacy (Perky, Original), Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

SHEGO

Once again I’ve been doing some exploring in Second Life, and I’m glad I did. I came across a hair shop called SHEGO that has this ultra cute top bun for free. There’s no group needed, just purchase the hairstyle from the vendor for zero linden. This style comes with an Omega applier hair base, and a system layer hair base. The bun part of the style, and the side wisps are mesh.

Losing My Zed

LOSING MY ZED- Prudence Rexroth

Down the hatch in one quick swallow! Hi Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m sure you’re curious as to why I am about to swallow this cute pink letter z. It’s all because of Kiddo Oh, the owner/creator of Dead Doll formerly Dead Dollz. You may have heard that in June the iconic brand Dead Dollz was rebranded and became Dead Doll. In celebration there is a super cute freebie that is intended to be worn for the Dead Doll photo contest.

What’s the contest? It is intended to be a photo depiction of how “Dead Dollz” might have lost their “z” and became Dead Doll. There are some really incredible prizes for this contest and it is free to enter. First prize is 10,000 linden, and 5,000 in store credit to spend at Dead Doll! There is no group requirement to pick up the free contest merchandise at the Dead Doll store. You’ll find it sitting on the counter near the contest information sign. The deadline is July 15th, so hurry if you want to enter, and don’t forget to check the notecard included in the package for all contest rules and information.

The free Dead Doll photo contest merchandise package comes with a knotted logo tee, a coffee to go with bento hold pose (not pictured), and a re-sizeable letter z. Good Luck, and enjoy the freebies!

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

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 free ACCESS 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!

Volthair

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-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

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.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS 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.

Movement

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.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS 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!

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

College Survival 101

CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE!
CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE! Is the only way for a college student to survive. It’s the pick me up, the all nighters best friend, hangover cure, and just what the Doctor ordered. Man did I need my morning pick me up after a long night of partying. I had to find something to wear of course, before I go out, and grab my morning cup of Joe. I pulled on my grey Hawker’s House shorts, they smell clean enough. Then ravaged through my drawers, looked under the bed, was left with the only clean shirt I had. My loud awesome go to Boyberry summer party shirt. Then I slipped on my Ellison Coastal sandals from Rebellion as I grabbed my Vespa keys and went out the door.

Rode to the best place to get coffee near campus. Then your left deciding what to order of course. Hmm…Double Double, French Vanilla Cappuccino, The Gretzky, Chocolate Timbits Iced Capp, Doubleshot on Ice, White Mocha Frappuccino, Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte, or perhaps the Espresso Frappuccino. I went with just the simple Double Double for now. MMmmm…man did I need that. Nothing like that warm caffeine coursing through your veins to get you ready for a long day of classes. BTW if you like my outfit, the entire thing is free.

All three piece are from the Allstuff Hunt going on right now. Who can pass up on this wild Summer Shirt from Boyberry? These denim Bernuda Shorts from Hawker’s House is only part of their gift. It also includes an Ombre tank. Along with another outfit and sandals in the box. These Ellison sandals are just what a guy needs for the upcoming summer months. There is a long list of Menstuff Hunt gifts for the guys. All of the items are priced $0L or $1L. Not to worry cause this hunt includes ALL the stuff groups. Which are Womenstuff, Menstuff, Homestuff, Posestuff, and Kidstuff. There is something in this hunt for what ever it is you fancy here in Second Life. Just remember to grab yourself a cup of coffee, you’ll need it for all the hunting your gonna do on this hunt. Cheers!

Adventure Time

Adventure Time

It’s time, to get up, go someplace new, I need an adventure. I’ve got a comfy but cute travel-ready outfit, and food we can eat on the road. Now all that’s left is to pick a place and go. Before I hit the road, I’ll tell you about this cute t-shirt from Aegyo, and how you can get it plus this fast food grub from Junk Food for free.

Aegyo

I’m a sucker for a good tshirt. Truth be told I’m a jeans and tees kind of girl at heart. This tied tee is a free group gift at Aegyo. The group is free to join. This top at Aegyo comes in 2 versions, one with the lazy “Not Today” kitty that I have on, and another “I love” graphic tee. Each of the two designs come in multiple colors and two sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy

-Aegyo- T-Shirt

Junk Food

Did you know that Junk Food has a Midnight Madness board with no group required? That’s right, it’s free for everyone. It also has a low target. The current prize on this MM board is a set of fast food favorites undoubtedly inspired by Wendy’s. The “Gingy’s” fast food set at Junk Food includes burgers, fries, fountain drink, a shake in chocolate or vanilla, spicy chicken nuggets, and held paper fast food bag. Each of the food items come in bento hold versions, and décor versions.

Pandemic Fashion

Staying Safe

Hey there Fab Free, I have to say that with all that is happening in the world, I am thankful for my Second Life. I’m also glad you’re here. While we are all “staying home” did you know that you can find “stay home” gifts on the Marketplace as well as in world? Some are available both in-world, and on the Marketplace. I don’t know about you, but with the higher numbers joining in on Second Life recently, I sometimes find teleporting to be cumbersome. With that in mind I picked up a few “stay home” themed free or inexpensive gifts from the Marketplace to share with you.

Koyuki

Nothing says pandemic fashion like a face mask. There are tons of face mask gifts floating around, this one is from Koyuki. It’s a unisex Marketplace dollarbie that comes in basic black or white with some minor color changes for 9 options in total. I liked that this mask is simple and fit well with some minor resizing/positioning.

:KOYUKI: 1L Mask - Stay home Stay safe

Maryfer

Who doesn’t love a little buffalo plaid now and then? I suppose it could be just me, but somehow I don’t think I’m alone on this. My and black plaid top is a freebie on the Marketplace put out by Maryfer in the spirit of staying home and staying safe. This top is fitted for Maitreya Lara only. There’s also a free men’s version of this top. It too is red and black plaid. The men’s shirt is fully unbuttoned and sized for Signature male body/bodies. There’s no specification as to whether it fits a specific Signature body, or all of them.

::Mary.:: Canvas #stayhome gift Maitreya (Add to unpack)::Mary.:: Canvas #stayhome gift for Signature (Add to unpack)

Unfazed & Zombie Suicide 

Lastly, the hand sanitizer spray I’m using is a free collaboration between Unfazed and Zombie Suicide. This fun animated freebie worked well with my AO and static poses. The bento animation makes your avatar appear to pull the spray from a pocket, spray hands, replace the sanitizer in a “pocket”, and then rub the sanitizer in. It also has the added option of letting you pick how frequently your avatar will bust out the hand sanitizer. You can get your copy of this free animated hand sanitizer on the Marketplace.
