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.

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

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.

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.

Serving Lewks

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.

The Damned


Pyromancy

Demons manifest through arcane ritual and hell fire. What is this? Has the world been flung into a darkness where horned devils step into the light? Well, perhaps nothing quite that malevolent, however there are a few days left of the Twisted Hunt where you can find a lot of what Blue and I are wearing, as well as some of the demonic décor Blue used to create this fiendish atmosphere for free. You just have to hunt them! The hunt ends on September 30th. I also picked up one of the group gifts at Pendulum to help accessorize my devilish appearance. Since there are several of the Twisted Hunt prizes included in this post, I added the vendor photos I could find below. To get more details about each of these finds, keep reading. Otherwise, feel free to scroll down for full credits. and thanks for being here!

The Twisted Hunt Gifts

Additional accessories are available on the Twisted Side Hunt, but are not shown in my photo.

The free Twisted Hunt prize by Sweet Revolutions really has to be seen to be truly appreciated. This “Damned Conjure Circle” pose/prop is being used as awesome demonic background imagery in my photo, however it has 4 poses included.

Pendulum Group Gift 

Last, but very far from least, I simply couldn’t resist this group gift at Pendulum.

The Pendulum/HCXII group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, and there are several group gifts available.

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara
