Snowfall

Snowfall

I’ve always thought of the notion of a first snowfall as something magical and wonderous, though admittedly that’s partly due to having experienced so few in my lifetime. That said, there are quite a few free gifts waiting on the Christmas tree inside the Cosmopolitan Sales event, and these delicate snow flurries by Persefona are my favorite. For this look I also picked up the free Cosmo gifts by Limited Addiction, IDTTY, and ARTE. I also happen to be wearing a cute little sweater dress by Rebel Hope that you can find inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the details.

Persefona

These pretty little snow flurries are an attachment by Persefona. You can get them for free at the Cosmo event by joining the event group and clicking the stockings on the Christmas tree just inside the entrance. The Cosmopolitan Sales event group is free to join. This wintery gift includes a resizer hud that lets you easily adjust the size of the snowy attachment.

Limited Addiction

My sassy cute knee-high socks and ankle boots are also free at Cosmo, courtesy of Limited Addiction. You’ll find them waiting on the Christmas tree with the many other free gifts. These sassy holiday themed shoes come with a texture change hud for the socks that lets you pick from a few holiday color combinations.

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

IDTTY

Both my eye makeup and lip-color are part of the free Cosmo group gift by IDTTY. Their gift is a festive makeup “Jolly Days Collection” that includes 2 eye makeup looks, and 2 lipsticks. I’ve added the vendor photo below so you can get a look at both of these gorgeous holiday makeup looks.

Appliers Included: Genus, Catwa, Lelutka
IDTTY FACES - JOLLY DAYS

ARTE

Most skins include a browless option which makes experimenting with different brow shapes and colors a lot easier and more fun. The brows I’m wearing are the free Cosmo gift by ARTE. I think they look sleek and quite natural. In this free gift you’ll find BOM layer eyebrows in brown, light brown, dark brown, blond, red, and a tint-able version. Also there are Omega, and Catwa appliers, and a brow shaper included.

Rebel Hope

Finally, this pretty sweater dress is a Marketplace find by Rebel Hope. It’s just 25 linden and includes a color change hud for the ties and metal bits. If you’re interested in a color other than red, there are several to choose from. Each color is just 25 linden on the Marketplace.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh + Alpha Layer

Cheeky Elf

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Thank you so much for being here. I cannot even handle how close to Christmas we are! I’m also finding myself both excited and overwhelmed by all the giftiness (yes I know that’s not a word) around the grid. There are so many events and advents and hunts, it’s a lot! For this post I picked up free gifts from Mister Razzor, BONDI, and IDTTY at Access, and a fun Marketplace find by The Bold Llama. Keep reading for all the details!

Mister Razzor

I think it goes without saying that Mister Razzor is a favorite tattoo shop of mine. At the current round of Access, Mister Razzor has the cutest holiday face tattoo for free. It has pretty little snowflakes near your eyes, and says “let it go.” This tattoo comes in a BOM tattoo layer only. It also comes in white as well as black. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Access event group to get this and the many other free gifts. Just look for the blue gift boxes at each vendor booth.

BONDI

These unisex wire-frame glasses are the free Access group gift by BONDI at the Access event. The glasses have resize scripts, and include a color change hud with 4 preset choices for the frames and 4 the metal parts of the frames. The same hud also allows you to adjust the opacity of the lenses.

IDTTY

Also at Access, is this lovely matte lip-color by IDTTY. This lipstick shade is one of 4 subtle matte shades in the free “Real Love Collection” gift by IDTTY. This lipstick giftset comes in appliers for Catwa, Genus, and Lelutka heads only.

The Bold Llama

Lastly, I couldn’t resist this cute holiday top by The Bold Llama that I stumbled across on the Marketplace. This cute tank-top is just 25 linden, and if “cheeky” doesn’t suit you, you’ll find quite a few other choices like “Queen” and “Lit.” Each of these fun festive tops comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it can be worn by classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Classic Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Let Me Show You the Way

I'll Show You the Way

Follow me. I can show you the way. The way to what you ask? Well freebies of course! hehe Thanks for being here Fab Free’rs! There are so many fun things with gifts and prizes happing right now that it is hard to keep up. For this post I’m featuring a few of the Pumpkin Hunt gifts at Swank and a new free gift from Izzie’s.

Now through the end of the month the Swank event is hosting a Pumpkin Hunt. Most if not all of the participating shops have a Swank logo pumpkin at their booth with a gift ranging in price from 0 linden to 1 linden. I chose the free hunt gifts from Guguvaga, and Firelight to share with you. The Pumpkin Hunt at Swank does require you to wear the free-to-join Swank group tag.

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Guguvaga

I love the delicate looking sparkly spiderwebs on this fitted black tee by Guguvaga. It is a free Swank Pumpkin Hunt prize you can pick up at the event, just look for the Guguvaga booth. Don’t forget the Swank group tag.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Firelight

While I might not normally be a redhead, I found this pumpkin colored hairstyle by Firelight too cute to not share. I also think that the vibrant orange-red color is quite pretty, even if it’s not my usual. That said this pretty ponytail is also free as part of the Swank Pumpkin Hunt. Find and click the Swank logo pumpkin at the Firelight booth. The hairstyle comes in the “pumpkin” color shown with 2 size options. Remember to wear the Swank group tag from the free-to-join group.

Izzie’s 

Finally, I came across some gorgeous BOM and applier eyeshadows by Izzie’s on the Marketplace for free. The “Gloom Eyeshadows” are 0 linden on the Marketplace. With this gift you’ll get 5 smoky colors in 2 variations each.

Appliers/layers included: Omega/LOGO, Catwa, Lelutka, BOM Layers

Beach Yoga

Beach Yoga

As we head into the start of a new week I’m all about some self care. I’ve decided to make some time for things like a little yoga and some meditation in my regular routine. For me there’d be no better spot for some restful mental zen than a quiet spot on the beach. It’s a good thing Luas put out this cute yoga mat out as their new group gift just in time for my rekindled dedication to mental clarity.

Luas

This new group gift at Luas comes with a built-in bento hold pose, and a texture change hud with a hand-full of color combo choices. The Luas group is 50 linden to join. If you are new to the Luas group (or haven’t been in a while) you can also grab quite a few of the past group gifts, and access the group-only Lucky Letter boards. You can check out one of those cool prizes in Aline’s recent post “Sharpened Pencils.”

Carol G

I’m also sporting the new women’s Midnight Mania board prize from Carol G. This gorgeous blue toned upper body tattoo is free with your Carol G group tag, just join the mania. The Carol G group is 200 linden to join, and there are tons of male and female free group gifts, and a men’s Midnight Mania board as well.

Appliers & Layers Included: Neck Appliers – Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, Vista / Body Appliers – Omega, Maitrey a, Legacy, Slink, Belleza / BOM Tattoo Layers – 35%, 50%, 75%, 100%

NecoT

Lastly, you can’t go to the beach without sunglasses. Or at least you shouldn’t if you ask me. lol These cool aviators are a Marketplace dollarbie by NecoT. They come in 3 variations, a cool yellow color, a mirrored black, and this transparent black pair. They are also 100% mesh, copy, and mod so you can customize the color of the lenses and frames yourself if you want to. Needless to say these are well worth the 1 linden.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Skin Within

Happy Friday Fab Free Fam! I think the summer is a natural time to make yourself over, if you’re so inclined. Things feel fresh, bright, and new this time of year and I think a lot of us want to feel that way too. I love the infinite ability Second Life gives us to personalize, create, and recreate our individual looks. For this post I’m happy to tell you about a sweet little skin shop called Skin Within.

At Skin Within you’ll find female skins, and eyes to enhance your avatar. What makes this skin shop a little different is that their focus is on Bakes on Mesh (BOM) layer skins. They also offer tattoo layer makeup options, brow choices, and several skin tones. The eyes at Skin Within are Lelutka and Omega appliers.

The Store Group 

Skin Within has a free-to-join store group. Group members will get a 20% discount on purchases made while wearing the group tag. There is also a current free group gift skin. Her name is Mila and she includes BOM layers, and tattoo layer makeup options.

Fab Free Group Gift 

The free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Skin Within is a full set of eye appliers. The set includes 12 “Dreamy” eye choices in Lelutka and Omega appliers. The Fab Free group will always be free to join. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.

When on vacation no matter how short you gotta look the part. My outfit is composed of Man Cave Event Anniversary gifts. I couldn’t pass up sharing them with you guys.

Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.

I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.

Hey there Fab Free. I did like a lot of us are probably doing during our quarantine, I played with makeup! Before I could do that though, I completed the free in-store “Lot Makeup Hunt” at Dotty’s Secret. I also picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift from Xxxtasi. After all, no “lewk” would be complete without a cute manicure.

There are 6 makeup items (think lipstick, and a compact) hidden around the Dotty’s Secret store. These 6 prizes are free, you just have to find them and click them and your gift will be delivered. Each free gift has a different set of makeup appliers and classic/BOM layers. I was able to create all 3 of the above makeup looks using the gifts from the Lost Makeup Hunt at Dotty’s Secret.

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic/BOM layers, Catwa Appliers, Omega Appliers, *Some also include a Lelutka Applier

Dotty's Secret - The Lost Makeup Hunt + Free group membership

Last. but far from least, I picked up this very pretty and very subtle floral nail applier set by Xxxtasi. It’s their free Stay at Home Club gift. It includes 3 manicure choices, and is an Omega/Empire applier.

Even in a cute pink dress, I’m an absolute heathen, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Hi Fab Free! I hope your week is going well.
