#TakeaSelfie

Helllooo Everybody!! I gotta say I have been thoroughly enjoying all the tropical locations Second Life has to offer. I can’t help but smile when enjoying all the amazing scenery. It’s also perfect for snapping selfies, and before anyone comes at me for being vain I think selfies are all in good fun. I like the idea of celebrating feeling good about yourself. So take some selfies! haha That said, I definitely enjoy this bright colorful look. The top and shorts are a Pride themed group gift at Seniha, while my tattoos, sunglasses, and bubble tea are all free gifts at ACCESS.

Seniha

My cropped top and short shorts are a recent group gift at Seniha in honor of Pride month. The Seniha group is free to join at this time and there are multiple group gifts available. This particular gift includes the top and shorts in several sizes, and a color/texture change hud for the top The hud includes 25+ solid colors for the tee with rainbow/love themed graphics to choose from.

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)

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.

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

Silent Lucidity

Silent Lucidity

Hello Fab Free, I hope everyone who participated in the candy gathering part of the Halloween festivities has successfully recovered from their sugar coma and is doing well. It it’s own way, finding great group gifts and freebies around Second Life is a lot like trick or treating minus the sugar rush. For this post I picked up the latest group gift at PumeC, a free pair of earrings at ChicChica, and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Birth. I hope you like them as much as I do!

PumeC

The skin I’m happily wearing is actually just half of the most recent group gift at PumeC. This generous gift includes 2 skins, one for Genus head  wearers (not shown), and one for Catwa head wearers. Both skins come in the “February” tone and have body appliers along with the head applier, cleavage options, brows or no brows, as well as 2 system layer skins. To get your copy of this beautiful skin you’ll need to join the PumeC group. There is a one time join fee of 399 linden.

Body Appliers Included: Legacy, Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, Omega

ChicChica

For what I am sure is a limited time ChicChica has out a free pair of pumpkin earrings. They come with a color change hud that has several metallic options. These pretty free earrings do not require a group at this time either, so do not wait to head over to ChicChica and pick them up.

Birth

These icy blue mesh eyes are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Birth. I love the slightly heart shaped pupils, I think it gives them a unique look. These free eyes can be yours just by wearing your Fab Free group tag and clicking the gift vendor at Birth. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, the group is always free to join.

Wisteria


Wisteria

Hell yeah I am a princess! This pastel hair style by Tram and the dainty pearl headband are giving me serious fantasy princess vibes. Both items are free gifts at the Hair Fair.

Oh, and the lippy by Shiny Stuffs is part of a free full palette of lip colors at The Free Dove. Keep reading for info about each of these fabulous freebies, or scroll down for full credits. Have fun Fab Free’rs!

Tram

I love the implied movement of this wispy hairstyle by Tram. It also happens to be a free gift at the Hair Fair. This pretty freebie comes in 2 pastel colors each with resize scripts. To get yours just head over to the Hair Fair and visit the Tram booth.

There is something special about pearls. This dainty pearl headband is a free gift by Cae at the Hair Fair.

The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

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

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

So Pugly


So Pugly

Hey Fab Free, seems like the week is just chugging along, did we even have a weekend? lol One great thing about Tuesdays in Second Life is 25 Linden Tuesday. The too-cute top I’m wearing is the 25 Linden Tuesday item at Paper.Sparrow. I also happened across the most recent group gift at Pink Hustler. I hope you love both of these fabulous finds.

The Paper.Sparrow Top

This version of the 25L Tuesday tee at Paper.Sparrow reads “You’re so Pugly” across the bottom. There are several of the “Francis” tees in this style, each with a different graphic priced at 25 linden each for today only. Also, the shirts have a very cute shredded back which is perfect for summer. To get yours, just head over to Paper.Sparrow before the end of the day (I’m not sure if the promotional price will be available longer) and follow the 25LT signs to the vendor. No group is required.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Voluptuous, Ocacin, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (S,M,L)

The Pink Hustler Hair

Pink Hustler has this cute shoulder length hairstyle available as a free group gift for all Pink Hustler group members. The style comes with 3 color huds, each with several choices, and the ability to change the color of the bow. This summery style also has resize scripts for easy fitting. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 500 linden. Along with this gift, there are quite a few previous group gifts still available.
