Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

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.

Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner

It has been getting warmer in my part of the world, and for once I am ready, if not eagerly anticipating the summer. The promise of warm sunny days put me in the mood to add some brightness and summer color to my space here in Second Life. My new cozy little reading corner, also known as Oscar’s favorite place to hoard his tennis ball collection, is thanks to Happy Weekend items from Muniick, and free Stay at Home Club gifts from ChiC Buildings, [QE Home], Kisetsu, and Eclectica Curiosities.

Muniick 

This weekend only Muniick has this sideboard table and hanging picture set out for just 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend sales. The sideboard has 3 color options, and the photo frames have 2 color choices. Each piece is just 3 land impact and can be set out together or separately. Plus, the pretty floral prints feel like summer.

ChiC

The love a good built-in. This bookshelf from Chic Buildings with the sliding ladder has that built-in look and comes in 2 colors. There’s also an empty version without the books so you can add your own items to the shelves, and the ladder is optional. To get your copy, head over to ChiC Buildings and pick up this free Stay at Home Club gift. Hurry, the Stay at Home Club gift at ChiC changes often!

Kisetsu

The cute pastel Japanese tea set is a free Stay at Home Club gift at Kisetsu. This gift will dispense tea, and includes a display tea cup along with the tea set. I think it looks perfect on the sideboard from Muniick, and now I can have a nice warm green tea any time I want.

Eclectica Curiosities 

I really like the soft buttery yellow of this armchair by Eclectica Curiosities. It seems warm and inviting. The chair along with the side table and lamp are also free Stay at Home gifts. The lamp can be turned off and on via touch, and the chair has several solo sit animations.

[QE Home]

The rug, and the pile of throw pillows I stashed in the sideboard table are together the free Stay at Home Club gift from [QE Home]. The rug and pillows each have a few color/pattern choices with a bright bohemian kind of feel to them. The pillows can also be sized via their touch menu. I think they add a pretty pop of color.

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.

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

Not Today

Not Today
Do you ever feel like this? The phone rings and you just don’t wanna answer it. No matter how many times it rings. 10, 20, 50, 100 times, nope not gonna do it. I’ve checked out and I do not care who it may be. It’s been that kind of day for me recently. It seems like with people home they’re going through there old address books. All they want to do is reach out and call someone. Sorry not today Satan! I am not in the mood to reminisce or take a trip down memory lane. So that phone can keep right on ringing.

Ring ring ring!

The Happy Weekend sale is almost here. The phone and table with attached chair is from Muniick. It’s their new Retro Telephone Table for The Happy Weekend 60L sale for this sales round. The phone and chair come in 4 colours via touch HUD. Also the drawer on the table opens and shuts on touch. You can rez the phone and table separately if you wish. The phone is 2Li and the table is 4Li. So If you like retro furniture or want something that might remind you of your later days. Then go grab this item for The Happy Weekend sale.

Dress the part, well maybe. 

My outfit is Hoorenbeek’s new free group gift. Even though I wasn’t in the mood to answer the phone, I still wanted to feel like I was working. So I actually got up and got dressed today. I wanted to adult and dress like a professional. Come tomorrow I’ll be right back in lounge wear and doing nothing, lol. Perhaps my mind is going a bit crazy. I’m sure I’ll snap out of it soon enough. Until then you all can go out and grab this full outfit (shirt, shoes, pants, watch & bracelet) gift before it’s gone.

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.

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.

Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Not a Creature Was Stirring...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; or an adorable puppy. I’ve been enjoying all the Christmas things this year, and the latest group gift at JIAN is among my favorites. The side table complete with cocoa, cookies, and not one, not two, but three adorable puppies is just more than I can resist. It also goes quite well with the Reindeer Games Hunt prize at Park Place. I love the details of this arm chair with the holiday pillow and draped blanket. It looks like the perfect spot to curl up for a long winter nap. For more info about each of these fantastic finds keep reading. As always, there is a full list of credits and links at the end. Happy Holidays!

JIAN

As I mentioned above, this side table with the cookies and cocoa, candle, books, glasses, and even the sweet sleeping puppies is a free group gift at JIAN. This gift is highly detailed and has a touch menu that lets you pick from different textures for the puppies, colors for the blanket they are snuggled up on, and change the lighting effect of the candle. The JIAN group also happens to be free to join at this time.

Park Place

Park Place is participating in the Reindeer Games Hunt happening now. The RGH is a dollarbie hunt with a twist. If you don’t feel like hunting, no problem! The hunt prize is also for sale along side the hunt poster at the participating store for 25 linden. Otherwise, if you’re up for the challenge you can hunt the prize and pay just 1 linden for it once you’ve found it. The prize at Park Place is this nicely crafted arm chair. It includes several male and female sit poses, along with several PG couples poses. Don’t miss this great dollarbie, the hunt ends December 31st.

Hint “Think I’ll just sit at my desk and finish my letter to Santa.”

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

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

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.

Women’s Sizes (Jane Sweater): Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Legacy, Slink Hourglass
