Giuliadesign

The vest style top I am wearing is part of the free Jail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.EUSOPIA

Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

As I’ve mentioned before I may not celebrate what at least in the U.S. is considered a traditional Thanksgiving, but I do believe very much in practicing thankfulness. I am thankful for autumn weather, for the beauty of the season, thankful for love, and for friendship. Honestly, the more I think on it, the more I have to be thankful for. That is a very beautiful and fortunate thing. I also am so thankful I have the opportunity to be here doing something I enjoy, sharing awesome finds with all of you.

Clawtooth

For this post I have some bitter-sweet news. Clawtooth is closing for good at the end of the month. Bubbles Clawtooth, the designer behind the store, sent out a lovely sentiment explaining their appreciation for all that Second Life has given them, and their carefully made decision to move away from Second Life and on to other projects. What does that mean for us? The entire Clawtooth store is on sale at 70% off from now through the end of November. I am not at all ashamed to admit I spent a few more lindens than I needed to picking up some of the lovely hairstyles that will be gone forever once Clawtooth closes. There is also a free holiday hairstyle with no group needed, and I saw at least one group gift. No group is required for the sale, and gachas are included. Most of the hairstyles appeared to be priced between 45 – 66 linden per color pack, and gachas were averaging at 25 linden per play.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gifts

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to show off a few of the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. As I’m sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join and there’s a full (continually updated) group gift list here of all the free gifts. I’m wearing the Fab Free group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins, the gift choker from West End, and the jacket/shirt combo gift by Northern Sky Creations.

7 Deadly Skins

The free Fab Free group gift skin at 7 Deadly Skins is a cute freckled female skin called Genie. She comes in a “lights” skin-tone pack with BOM layers, and Omega appliers for body and head.

West End

The free gift at West End for Fab Free group members is their “Simple Little Choker.” It has resize scripts, and a color change hud with 17 color choices.

Northern Sky Creations

Northern Sky Creations has a comfy red and black plaid jacket with a black shirt under it as a free group gift for Fab Free members. The top and jacket are all one piece and come in the following sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy.

Foxy November

Thankful for November

When the temperature is perfect, the sun is shining, and the air is crisp and cool I can’t resist the allure of spending some time outdoors. It’s good for the psyche. Speaking of goodness, it doesn’t hurt to look good while you’re taking a moment to feel good. Pink Cream Pie and Demicorn have lovely new group gifts out, and I can’t help but feel extra cute wearing them.

Pink Cream Pie 

My foxy top is the November group gift at Pink Cream Pie. This top really couldn’t be any cuter. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 12 adorable fox patterns to choose from as well as 12 solid fall color choices. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few previous group gifts still available, as well as lucky letter boards for group members.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Demicorn

If you’re looking for a pretty fall lip color, or perhaps something in a soft pastel, check out Demicorn’s new group gifts. There are 4 new group gifts that have applier lippies. This gorgeous autumn orange shade is from one of the “Turkey” lip color sets. I also got lucky and scored one of the new Lucky Letter board prizes. This manicure is from the “Morning After” nail set 3. Demicorn’s store group has a join fee of 100 linden. There are also several previous group gifts available and 6 group only Lucky boards.

Still Life

Still Life
Hello there Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve been having a good week thus far. I’m happy to be inching near the weekend myself. I am also happy to be here sharing some awesome free group gifts from ChicModa and Disorderly with you. I love them, I hope you will also.

ChicModa

I love the deep shade of violet the group gift dress at ChicModa has. The style of the dress is sweet and summery, but the color is all fall. It also includes a hud to let you show or hide the panties that are part of the dress. The ChicModa group is free to join at this time, so don’t wait! Also there are new Lucky Letter board gifts, and previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

ChicModa November 2020 Group Gift

Disorderly

This furniture and décor set by Disorderly is absolutely gorgeous. It also happens to be one of several free group gifts available. The set includes a group of paintings for the wall, a set that leans against the wall, and a side-table with books, candles, an urn, and a skull. Each of these items are low-prim and highly detailed. Disorderly’s store group is also free to join at this time.

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.
