Hey FabFree! With all the events and Hops and shops and hunts going on, I decided to send some of my “associates” out to gather up some of the goodies. So today, ya’ll get Alistar showing off a couple of thefree giftsfrom the Valentines Day Shop & Hop.
This is the ‘Aito’ short sleeved hoodie from GothiCatz. You’ll get the black and a sort of red/pink heather color tops each with the anatomical heart on them. Perfect for guys to have hearts for Valentines but still look ‘not girly’. 😉
Next from the Shop & Hop is the cute heart pose from DPSP poses. While this is labeled the “male” pose heart it could easily be unisex. The female pose comes in an identical heart prop but she’s posed in the center. It would be easy to move the hearts together if you wanted two Avis pose on the “same” prop for a really cute couple’s picture. Both hearts are, of course, freeto everyone.
Alistar’s new hair style is also afree gift but not from the Shop & Hop. He’s wearing the ‘Neil’ style from Vango and you can pick it up as a freepast Group gift. Just wear your free to join Group tag and collect it and several other gifts. ‘Neil’ comes with a HUD of classic colors and a tinting page so you can make just about any color you desire.
Hello, FabFree! I hope this weekend is finding you healthy and happy! And speaking of happy. Happy Lunar New Year to all celebrating it! The RL hubby and I got to go downtown and see the Lion dancers for a bit of extra good luck today. All the drums and the firecrackers, it was a great time.
Annnd speaking of time… Time is almost up over at Sugar Riott to grab the two freeshapes that are the January group gifts. There is the one for Raven that Ms Kerydwyn showed us and now we have Alistar showing off the gift, 014, for the Quinn head.
As with the Raven shape, you’ll need to join the freeSugar Riott group to get your gift. The men’s shape is also a full body shape so there’s a version for Belleza Jake, Legacy, SLink and Signature. Plus, as with the ladies shape, the comes with a fully detailed style card.
This guy is at the gym ALOT…
Both shapes are the advertised January Group gifts so time may be running out on them with the last day in January coming up fast. So don’t delay!
Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there.
Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate.
Hey ya Fab Fam! I probably don’t even need to say it but… it’s Tuesday!! which means it’s time for 25L Tuesday. And both C&N Designs and Muneria are getting back to the old days of 25L Tuesday which meant RP stuff!
C&N Medieval Designs, a long time excellent source for RP clothes for both men and women has this amazing smexy “Pirate” outfit for the men that Gabe is lookin’ so good in today. The out fit comes complete with the top, pants and boots! Plus the vest can be worn with or with the shirt.
Classic Mesh – S – L
My rakish set is also a 25L Tuesday find. This is the “Cusu” set from Muneria. You get the tunic top with the bracers and belt wrap plus the leather pants. The HUD for both items is huge with plenty of choices. I know my RP character will be wearing this one for our next role play date.
Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
Fitmesh – M
SLink – Hourglass, Physique
Tonic – Curvy, Fine
As always, 25L Tuesday is a fleeting thing so hurry over to get the goodies while they last!

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. We have a nice surprise for the gentlemen today. Amazing Creations has given us a “two for the price of one” hunt prize appropriately enough for the Surprise Hunt. This is the ‘Casual 5’ shirt one of the two prizes you can get for just 3L and a little hunting. The shirts both come in two versions, one with the ‘doubled’ long sleeve look and one with simple regular short sleeves. Perfect for this time of year when the weather can be warm one day and cool the next.
The Surprise Hunt runs until April 30th which is creeping closer rather quickly. So don’t delay too long or the surprise will be all gone.
Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. Though it may be afternoon at least in my part of the Grid… I am getting ready for the weekend nights. And the 50L Fridays sale is setting me up just perfectly. If you are unaware of this every Friday sale, you can see all the details here.
Let’s start at the top with the top. This is the ‘Tobias’ tank from Butterscotch and it’s the 50L special today. It only comes in the black but, if you wait till tomorrow you can pick one up in blue for the Saturday Sale. I prefer the darker colors so I don’t need to wait around.
My new slacks are also just 50L today from one of my favorite designers: AsteroidBox. These are the ‘Jordan’ pants and they come in a Unisex pack to include ladies sizes. Each leg can be colored separately to make your own style stand out. The metal zippers color can also be changed.
There is no monopoly on common sense On either side of the political fence We share the same biology, regardless of ideology Believe me when I say to you I hope the Russians love their children too
Russians – Sting
Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).
Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head. Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again. Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.
It’s all just leaders and their egos. If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars. But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not. It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.
But that’s just how this little idealist sees it. I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do. War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?! The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way. Sigh.
My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese. Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me. The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same. Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams… Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.
They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends. Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.
Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.
I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market. Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L. You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys. The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift. These fit as follows:
I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!
Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be. Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤
Arielle (& Cray!) is are looking fabulous in…

Mondays are wonderful in Second Life! In addition to a full day to unpack all those sales boxes from the weekend, Apple Fall does something unique called the Monday Perk. If you are a member of their 10L group, you simply go stand at the inworld store for like 5 minutes and you get registered into their weekly drawing! Winners can win either a L$2,500 cash prize or a L$2,500 Store Credit just for showing up. While you are there, take a peak at all their cool decor items and free group gifts!!!
Update: Looks like Apple Fall *just* announced that they are discontinuing this program, right after this post was published. Alas!
So, where are these hot free gifts? In the photo below, check out three of the gifts on the bench. They are the Kiwi & Blueberry Cheesecake (YUM), the Coral Specimen, and the Americana Bunting.
Many thanks to my DJ friend, Heath Firanelli, for joining me to showcase this amazing decor from Apple Fall.
So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match! Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.
For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB. He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style. It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:
Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat). The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well. This outfit fits:
Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.
