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.

Caticorn Cuteness

Caticorn Cute

Hellooo there Fab Free! Does anyone else sometimes dress to fit their mood? I find a lot of the time my outfit is an almost direct reflection of how I am feeling or what I want to project. That said, these caticorns from Reed definitely suit my silly playful mood. Together the pose and the outfit are such a fun vibe. My playful pose is a group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair. I love it when I find free gifts that play well together!

Reed 

These pink shorts and the cute as heck caticorn print top are a free group gift at Reed. The Reed group is free to join, and the previous group gift shown here is still available. The only things better than unicorns, are caticorns. Just saying.

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

Hazeel

It’s Pose Fair time! Hazeel has this super fun bento pose out at their booth at the Pose Fair for free. You’ll need to join the event group (it is free to join) and wear the tag when you click the gift box to get your copy of this great pose.

Smile it’s September!

Smile it's September!

Can you believe that September is finally here?! I feel like it’s been the longest summer I’ve ever experienced. Needless to say I am counting the days until it’s officially fall. Although, I kind of do enjoy this bit of time at the end of summer when you can start to mix a bit of autumn attire in with your warm weather wardrobe. I did just that with some finds from Pink Cream Pie and Red’s Little Secrets. Have fun, and happy weekend Fab Free’rs!

Pink Cream Pie

Pink Cream Pie put out this adorable turtle-neck sweater as their September group gift. I’m not sure whether the cute little critters across the chest are foxes or kitties, but just like the shirt says, they definitely make me smile. Pink Cream Pie has a join fee of 314 linden, and quite a few past group gifts still available.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya (Lara, Petite), Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya

Red’s Little Secrets

I love the look of the this skirt from Red’s Little Secrets with the sweater. It’s a free gift for the Stay at Home Club. There’s no need need to join a group for this free gift, just click the vendor and click “deliver.” I do want to point out that it does stick through the sweater in the back a little, but not enough that it bothered me. Even so, this free skirt could go with so many things, it’s well worth the effort to pick it up. Also, Red’s Little Secrets has several Stay at Home gifts, including some male items.

Skirt Sizes Included: MeshBody Legacy, Slink (not specified which), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (not specified which)

Have Big Floppy Hat Will Travel

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Blue and I have once again gone on weekend getaway. This time it’s celebration of our recent engagement. Needless to say I’m beyond excited. While he checked things with our Uber driver, I double checked our list and made sure we didn’t forget to pack anything.

Wanting to dress cute and be comfortable I put together this outfit from the free hunt prizes you can find on the sim hunt at the Sim Style sim. It’s home to Envious, Elusive, and Limited Addiction. All three shops have free hunt prizes hidden all over inside stores and surrounding grounds. There are 12 free prizes, and several decoys. On this hunt you’ll find shoes, outfits, dresses, and more for your summer wardrobe. The hunt runs from now until August 12th.

My t-shirt, jean skirt, and dino sneakers are all free hunt gifts by Elusive. These gifts are hidden in angry looking little turtles that seem to be sulking in various spots inside and outside the shops. Be prepared to look high and low, indoors and outdoors, and watch out for those decoys!

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.

Here in the Garden

Here in My Garden

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week in June? I’m pretty sure May was the longest single month I’ve ever experienced. I’m happy to be here in the month of June. Speaking of it being a new month, that means there’s a new group gift available at American Bazaar. This pretty peachy-pink colored dress with the stylized floral print is the free American Bazaar group gift for this month. It comes in sizes fit for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Feeling cute in my new dress I decided to take a stroll through the trails at Otter Lake. There are so many lovely spots to explore there. My pose and the butterfly prop are a free group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair Market. The set comes with the pose, 2 versions of the butterfly prop (one transferrable, one not), and a pose-ball version of the pose. To get yours you’ll need to join the free-to-join Pose Fair Market group and stop by the Hazeel booth. There you’ll find the gift pose waiting.

It was all a Daydream

It was all a Daydream

Do you ever have one of those daydreams where you hear, smell, and feel the dream rather than just see it in your mind? I have those sort of daydreams about the ocean. In the moment I can hear the sea birds, and the rush of the waves, smell that unmistakable salty sea air, feel the wet sand beneath my feet, and the warm sun on my skin. Thank goodness for Second Life where beach-life is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long!

Beauty Factory

Speaking of beach-life, I picked up this new bikini at Beauty Factory recently. It’s one of their most recent group gifts, and it comes in several colors and sizes. Not only that, did you know that Beauty Factory has a room of group gifts? That’s right I said room. There is a one time join fee of 99 linden for the Beauty Factory group, however I think the number of group gifts available more than makes up for it. You’ll find the group gift room at Beauty Factory in one of the smaller buildings outside the main building. Happy Shopping!

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

Soak Up the Sun

Soak Up the Sun

Hi Fab Free! I don’t think I’m quite ready to head out to the beaches, but my backyard basin will do me fine. The weather is nice, and I need some sunshine. Most  of my little backyard setup is a new gacha set by Petite Mort out at Gacha Garden. My bikini and wedge shoes are part of the set too. Oh, and let’s not forget the best part, the mojito!

What’s this about a mojito you ask? Well, it is the Petite Mort Exclusive at Gacha Garden awarded after 20 plays. It has an animated hold pose. The bikini and shoes both come in several sizes and colors, and the furniture has poses. This fun Cabana gacha set by Petite Mort at Gacha Garden is just 50 linden per play, and is perfect for summer.

The Day After Easter

After Easter

Let’s be honest, for a lot of us, this is the reality of the day after Easter. I’ll have to make room in my refrigerator for this giant chocolate bunny because it will take me at least a month to eat it. Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, as always I’m happy you’re here. I don’t know about you, but I needed a little giggle, and some chocolate to go along with my freebie fix today.

Hazeel Poses

This adorable chocolate bunny is part of the “Easter Chocolate” group gift at Hazeel Poses. It comes with a bento hold pose, a transferable chocolate bunny, a non transferable chocolate bunny, and of course a pose-ball incase you need to rez the pose. Right now the Hazeel Poses group is 99 linden to join and there are 10 current group gifts.

FurtaCor

My lovely warm-weather day dress is a free group gift also. This sweet dress comes from Furtacor, and their store group is currently free to join. There are several Furtacor group gifts at this time. This one is the “Angel” dress, and it is free with the Furtacor group tag. The dress comes with a color/texture change hud that has 9 solid and print options.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitted Classic, Ebody

MINIMAL

Finally, what you can see of this bright yellow backdrop is the April group gift at MINIMAL. The texture of this porch-like backdrop is really detailed, and I love the warm sunshine yellow color. The MINIMAL group has a one time join fee of 150 linden, and there are several group gifts currently available.

Sweeter Than Sweet

Sweeter Than Sweet

Alright, I’ll admit it, I’m almost as big a sucker for sweets as I am for freebies, which makes this time of year particularly dangerous. Hi there Fab Free’rs, I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of more or less Valentine’s Day themed goodies to be had around the grid. I’ve been sneaking some pre-Valentine’s Day chocolates while wearing the latest group gift from Boubouki and the gorgeous Saturday Sale offer from Cae. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and the credits will be listed at the end as always.

Cae

I’m starting with the Saturday Sale item at Cae because it’s of course a limited time offer. This gorgeous “Ayana” jewelry set is just 75 linden. The vendor will also allow you to send this necklace and earrings set as a gift. The earrings and necklace are both able to be sized via touch menu and there is a color change hud. The hud lets you pick from several beautiful presets for the gemstones as well as the metal parts of the jewelry.

Boubouki

As I mentioned above, my pretty red crop top is a free group gift at Boubouki. At this time the Boubouki group is free to join and there are 2 group gifts available. This red top has some pretty red detailing at the bottom hem, which I completely failed to show in my photo (sorry!) and comes in several sizes. To get yours you’ll need to go to Boubouki and join the free-to-join group, then pay the gift vendor 1 linden, you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden, and your gift will be delivered to you.

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