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!

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

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.

Celebratory Cupcake

Cupcake

Hello to the Fabulous in the land of pixels. I come to you with free gifts and a sugary sweet cupcake. I also might have had more coffee than usual today. The prizes in this post are my cute floral top/dress from American Bazaar, this cute hair-do by Limerence, and an Anniversary cupcake by Focus Poses.

Cosmopolitan Sales Room Anniversary Gifts

How about that, Cosmopolitan Sales Room is celebrating an Anniversary, and we are all invited! Most of the many participating designers in this round have generously placed out a free gift to help celebrate. The gifts require the free-to-join Cosmo event group. Once you’re wearing your tag you just need to click the sparkly gold gift boxes to get the free gifts. I picked up this cute hairstyle by Limerence. It’s called Diza, and it comes in a “Special” color pack. I tinted mine to this dark brunette shade using the Limerence hud. I also got this tasty cupcake from the Focus Poses gift. This delicious freebie includes the pose as well.

American Bazaar 

I love the casual yet put together look of this loose fitting floral top/dress by American Bazaar. Look at those buttons! It the group gift for the month of May. It claims to be a dress, however it’s a tad sheer in places, and a little short, so I threw on some denim shorts and wore it as a top instead. I think it’s too cute to pass up however you want to wear it. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

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

Purely Romantic

Purely Romantic

Everyone needs a little romance once in a while, even in their wardrobe. Hi Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to share with you this sweetly romantic gift top from Mangula, and a pretty floral manicure set from Beautiful Hustler. Keep reading for the details, credits are listed at the bottom as always.

Mangula

Mangula has several free gifts, the only catch? You need to be a member of their subscriber group. I picked up a fat pack of the Nina Blouse for free. It comes in quite a few colors, and each color pack has multiple sizes. I love the undeniably romantic look to this bare shoulder copped top.  Once you’re at Mangula, be sure to click their subscriber to join (it is free and does not use a group slot) then click the gift vendor and once your subscriber status is verified, your free gift will be delivered.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Tonic Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Beautiful Hustler

A romantic look just wouldn’t be complete without a pretty manicure. I picked up this bento floral manicure set by Beautiful Hustler on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. I really should have snapped a closer photo so you can see the nice detail on these stiletto nails. It comes in 3 pretty floral patterns with nails to fit Maitreya or Slink bento hands.

No Tricks Only Treats

No Tricks Only Treats

I love spooky season, and I’m really not ready for it to be over. Lately I’ve been in the mood for a Halloween movie night, which of course means comfy lounge wear. I picked up the Trick or Treat Lane gift by Zoom, and one of the current group gifts at Safira for this cute around-the-house sort of look. I also picked up these super cute treats by Andika at the Okinawa Trick or Treat Hunt, which by the way is free for one day only. So, keep reading for more details about each of these fun freebies, or scroll down for the full credits.

Zoom

Trick or Treat Lane will be going for just a few more days, so if you haven’t been I highly suggest going for some spooky fun shopping. Not to mention there are tons of free gifts. The tube top I have on is the free gift hidden at the Zoom booth. Packaged in a cute black treat bag, this gift wasn’t terribly difficult to find.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Safira

These shorts from Safira are my favorite of these spoopy cute finds. They are one of a few group gifts available at Safira. The group has a one time join fee of 50 lindens. The shorts have a texture/color change hud with 3 cute Halloween themed patterns to pick from, and several color choices for the waist band, and draw string.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya). Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink Hourglass

Andika

There’s an advent calendar style hunt happening at the Okinawa Panic of the Pumpkin event. Each day there is a new “Door of the Day” with a free prize. Simply knock on the door and when the menu pops up type “Trick or Treat” in the message box. Then your free gift will be sent. Andika’s door is the “Door of the Day” for October 30th. Their prize is this set of too cute Halloween themed treats with the matching bento pose. After October 30th you can purchase this prize for 50 linden.

Stormy Weather


Stormy Weather

Sometimes I like it when the skies get grey and billowy storm clouds roll in on high winds. I like the electric charge in the air, and that petrichor smell.  For now I am happy to be here sharing my love for a good freebie find while half daydreaming about escaping the heat with some pleasantly stormy weather.  BouBouKi has this little black tied top as one of their free group gifts. The BouBouKi group is free to join at this time. The group gift vendor will require you to wear the group tag and pay the vendor 1 linden, then you will be instantly refunded 1 linden and your gift will be delivered to you.

Psychosomatic


Psychosomatic

Hello Fab Free. Today’s post is a little melancholy, though appropriately so. If you are, or ever were into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) you know who the man on Pru’s shirt. Keith Flint, probably best known for his work with the band Prodigy, took his own life early this week. Despite his often menacing appearance on stage, he has been described by those who knew him as a kindhearted soft-spoken gentile soul. Music will never be quite the same without his creative spark.

The designer behind the brand Beautiful Hustler has put out this top as a free group gift in tribute to the beloved singer, dancer, and front-man. The top comes in a single mesh size (not sure if it is fitted or standard), as well as mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza (all), Tonic (all), and Slink (all) mesh bodies. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join.

Also, Pru is wearing a recent limited time free group gift nose ring by PUNCH. This crescent-moon shaped piercing is technically rigged to fit the Catwa Catya head, however it fit Pru’s Genus Project Classic head without any issues. The piercing is free to all PUNCH group members, and the group is free to join.

Lastly I just wanted to put this out there, if you are feeling low, low enough that suicide sounds like a plausible option, please please please talk to someone. Anyone. Here is a link to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ .

Here are the details for this look:

‘Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

'Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

You guys, the gifts that all of the designers have put out for the 6th anniversary of Cosmopolitan are really nice! I’ve been really pleased with everything and had a hard time deciding what to wear first. There is an easel when you first go through the doors with a group joiner so you can join the free “!!Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge!!” group. I joined the group and was able to pick up a gift from most of the designers, all for free. Here’s a little play by play of what I put together:

Rings

I have to start with the gift from Meva. I was shocked when I unpacked these rings. Not only do I already have these rings in silver and love them, but I paid for them. And now you can get them as a free gift! The free gift includes the rings in gold for each hand, plus a HUD that allows you to hide and show them.

Hair

The hair that I’m wearing is the free gift from Limerence. It’s a super cute little updo with a braid wrapped around. It comes in a nice variety of fun colors.

Top

I love a cute little corset top and this one is lovely. It is the free gift from Tachinni. It comes in a pretty, pale pink shade and has laces down the back that can be adjusted with an included HUD – you can change the colors of the laces and make them longer or shorter. It includes 4 mesh sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Isis.

 

All 3 of these gifts can be picked up at Cosmopolitan. There’s already been a bit of Cosmopolitan coverage on FabFree, specifically here, here, here, and here. Enjoy!
