Have Big Floppy Hat Will Travel

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Blue and I have once again gone on weekend getaway. This time it’s celebration of our recent engagement. Needless to say I’m beyond excited. While he checked things with our Uber driver, I double checked our list and made sure we didn’t forget to pack anything.

Wanting to dress cute and be comfortable I put together this outfit from the free hunt prizes you can find on the sim hunt at the Sim Style sim. It’s home to Envious, Elusive, and Limited Addiction. All three shops have free hunt prizes hidden all over inside stores and surrounding grounds. There are 12 free prizes, and several decoys. On this hunt you’ll find shoes, outfits, dresses, and more for your summer wardrobe. The hunt runs from now until August 12th.

My t-shirt, jean skirt, and dino sneakers are all free hunt gifts by Elusive. These gifts are hidden in angry looking little turtles that seem to be sulking in various spots inside and outside the shops. Be prepared to look high and low, indoors and outdoors, and watch out for those decoys!

A Pride Coffee Table Arrangement

Fancy Decor Pride Freebies!

Hey Fab Free! In the spirit of pride, I am here today to show you some lovely pride-themed decor to accompany all the great pride fashion we have been showing off on the blog. The cute decor is brought to you by Fancy Decor, and I also threw in a free houseplant from Mithral on my coffee table.

Cake & Coffee Anyone?

Ah, cake and coffee… my favourite combination. I set out a spread of cake and coffee mugs on my coffee table, both which are free gifts from Fancy Decor. The first stop to getting the free pride mugs is at the Arcade. You can grab these for free at the Fancy Decor booth at the event. The event is running until June 30th, so make sure you stop by there before then to get this offer.

As for the delicious looking cake, you can grab it for for free on Fancy Decor‘s Marketplace store. They also have a host of other free pride decor including pride pillows and a pride tapestry and trans pride tapestry. Awesome!

Everyone Loves a Houseplant

In addition to these great pride freebies, I added this adorable little houseplant to my coffee table display. This plant is a free group gift at Mithral Apothecary. The gift includes a plant that can sit on a table, as shown here, and one where the plant hangs off the edge. This is a must-have for home owners!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

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.

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.

The Day After Easter

After Easter

Let’s be honest, for a lot of us, this is the reality of the day after Easter. I’ll have to make room in my refrigerator for this giant chocolate bunny because it will take me at least a month to eat it. Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, as always I’m happy you’re here. I don’t know about you, but I needed a little giggle, and some chocolate to go along with my freebie fix today.

Hazeel Poses

This adorable chocolate bunny is part of the “Easter Chocolate” group gift at Hazeel Poses. It comes with a bento hold pose, a transferable chocolate bunny, a non transferable chocolate bunny, and of course a pose-ball incase you need to rez the pose. Right now the Hazeel Poses group is 99 linden to join and there are 10 current group gifts.

FurtaCor

My lovely warm-weather day dress is a free group gift also. This sweet dress comes from Furtacor, and their store group is currently free to join. There are several Furtacor group gifts at this time. This one is the “Angel” dress, and it is free with the Furtacor group tag. The dress comes with a color/texture change hud that has 9 solid and print options.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitted Classic, Ebody

MINIMAL

Finally, what you can see of this bright yellow backdrop is the April group gift at MINIMAL. The texture of this porch-like backdrop is really detailed, and I love the warm sunshine yellow color. The MINIMAL group has a one time join fee of 150 linden, and there are several group gifts currently available.

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Hey y’all! I fear that my favorite season might really be coming to an end. Luckily, I found the perfect little outfit to wear while I enjoy every last speck of Summer, before mean old Autumn shows up and invites his even worse pal Winter along.

Lilo

Belle Epoque has put out a new free group gift and it is seriously fabulous. All of the little details make it stand out from the crowd, like the adorable little ruffles and some really great lacing on the back of the top…and other details that I don’t know the names for because I don’t know how to fashion. But they’re really cute, see? It comes in one size, which is not labeled but which fits my Maitreya body perfectly. The Belle Epoque group is 10L to join and is it worth it? You know it! Besides this, there are a handful of other must-have gifts on the wall in the store.

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Sleeping to dream about you

Sleeping to dream about you

No, this isn’t a fall post. It’s still summer. It will be summer forever in SL. Forever! …But I guess this is kind of a fall post. I can’t help it, when designers make such lovely autumn themed things! I’ve got lots of great things to tell you about today, including a super cute group gift and some items from the cart sale!

No shoes!

I love cute little foot accessories like this. That way I can kind of sort of appear fully dressed, but still not be wearing shoes! Win-win. Also, they’re so pretty! I got the foot jewels that I’m wearing here as a free group gift from KC Couture. They come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink and with a HUD so they can be customized. There are LOTS of color options for the cords and tassels and then a handful of metallic tones for the chain. The KC group is only 25L to join and there is a wall in the store with a bunch of group gifts that are all really nice. I really should wear them more often, if only I could be bothered to wear shoes…

Short Dress

How could this possibly be a fall post if I’m not wearing shoes or any article of clothing past my thighs? My fabulous sweater dress is by JellyRoll and I got it for 10L from the cart sale at The Wash. There are 8 autumn hues to choose from and each is 10L. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Mara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

Okay fine, the bench is definitely fall…

I’m not much of a decor blogger so I’m not sure how much justice I’ve done this bench, but it’s really cute! It is another find at The Wash, this time from Tylar’s Treasures, and priced at just 10L for the cart sale. The pose that I’m using did not come with it, the only poses included are couples poses and since it’s just me I obviously couldn’t use those. There are brightly colored autumn leaves scattered about on the ground in front of it and on the sides and I just love the arbor across the top.

Great stuff, right? Totally worth embracing fall. ❤

We’ll move to an island

So I popped over to WellMade because I just had to have the super cute new FabFree group gift bikini. While I was there, I noticed that the gifts for the other various groups seem to have been updated as well! One of the new ones that I picked up is this fabulous shirt that they have available for the Teleport Hub group. And then I was faced with a very serious dilemma – which gift to photograph first?? Well obviously I did the only logical thing – both at once, of course!

Cropped Top

As I said, this shirt is a free group gift for the Teleport Hub group at Wellmade. Teleport Hub is 10L to join, and it’s totally worth one of those precious group slots because it gives you access to free gifts all over the place! This top comes sized for Maitreya as well as both Slink Hourglass and Physique. There is also a HUD with 2 color options. It’s a sexy and casual style that I think is just perfect!

Bikini bottoms

When you pick up this FabFree free group gift bikini at Wellmade, it comes with the bottoms that I’m wearing and also a bikini top that I’m not wearing. Each is sized for:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • additional “tighter” versions of Maitreya and Hourglass in the bottoms

Plus a HUD with two great color options. It’s a casual, comfy, sexy bikini to go with my casual, sexy, comfy top! Oh and as always, the FabFree group is free to join.
