Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

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

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

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

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

All-Nighter

All-Nighter

I just couldn’t put the book I was reading down. Blue had gone to bed hours ago, at what anyone would have considered a late hour. I had replied that I too would call it a night after just a moment longer. One more page, a chapter, just a bit more.  A moment longer turned into hours later, the once blazing fire in the fireplace now glowing red embers, and the morning sun was hinting over the horizon.

It didn’t help the situation that I had the cozy comfort of the oversized arm chair and a fuzzy warm blanket to keep me content and steadily reading my book. Come to think of it the glass of wine probably contributed to my unintentional all-nighter as well. The chair with props, and table with wine and decadent chocolates are both part of the Monster Mash hunt prize at Kitty Creations. There are several individual and couples poses, many with fun props in this set. You can hunt it down for 1 linden at Kitty Creations. If you’re not in a hunting sort of mood, you can also purchase the set for 25 linden for the duration of the hunt.

With my quite cozy spot near the fire, and my equally comfortable attire I was left with little ability to resist the allure of finishing my novel. This cute as heck tank top is a free Lucky Letter board prize at Pink Cream Pie. Not only is the witchy graphic cute, with the pastel colors versus the usual dark colors of the season, it references a favorite Halloween movie of mine, Hocus Pocus.  To participate in the Pink Cream Pie Lucky Boards (there are 3 new prizes) you’ll need the group tag. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few group gifts available as well, you’ll find the boards and the group gifts on the second floor.

Hoodie Season

Hoodie Season

There has been a lot of talk about “sweater weather” as the season shifts from summer to autumn. This year I think I’ll refer to it as “hoodie season.” At the moment little sounds nicer than a comfy cozy hoodie and a crisp cool autumn afternoon.

Gabriel

My over-sized hoodie by Gabriel is a free gift (no group needed) at Neo Japan. This blue and purple gradient hoodie is unisex. So guys, don’t hesitate to pick this free gift up also! I also very much like the open shoulders, and the giant kangaroo pocket. I think I just might live in this for a while.

Female Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy, Maitreya Lara

Male Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy Male, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt)

e.marie

Did you peep the cool earrings I have on? They are the latest group gift at e.marie. I love this take on the classic hoop earring. I think these are elegant enough to wear with formal looks, and still subtle enough to be worn casually. The e.marie group is 50L to join. This group gift includes a hud that allows you to pick from several metal choices, and these earrings can be resized.

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Get Lucky

Get Lucky

Hello Fab Free! I hope you’ve been enjoying the weekend. I have a suggestion for how you could spend some of any free time you may have. Three words, Lucky Letter boards. Seniha has several cute new items up on their Lucky Letter boards that you won’t want to miss. Along with Seniha there are some fabulous free prizes at the Bumblebee Lucky Letter boards.

Both Seniha and Bumblebee will require you to join their store group to participate in the Lucky boards. Both store groups also happen to be free to join. I picked up this pretty purple top at Seniha as a free Lucky Letter prize. My denim shorts are a free Lucky Letter prize at Bumblebee.

Top Sizes Included: (2 Versions, Solid/Polkadot) Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy

Pant Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya), MeshBdoy Legacy

Early Morning

Early Morning

I haven’t even finished my morning coffee, and already Herman here has been in the flowers. It’s a good thing he’s cute. He sure is pleased with himself too! As much as I dislike the wrecked flowerbed, I honestly can’t even be mad. Just look at his little face! I’m going to finish my coffee, and while I do that I suggest you check out these shorts from Safira and this cute cropped hoodie by Amias. Both are current group gifts. You know how it works from here, info, then credits at the end. Have fun Fab Free’rs!

Safira

I practically live in comfy shorts this time of year. This pair of comic themed shorts are the most recent group gift at Safira. They come in the monochrome version I’m wearing, and a bright colorful version. The Safira group is just 50 linden to join, and there are a ton of group gifts available. Plus, there are group-only lucky letter boards. I think the shorts alone are worth the join fee.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Legacy

Amias 

This grey hoodie with the Amias logo on the chest is a free group gift for the Cosmopolitan Sales Room event. The event group is free to join. This cute hoodie comes in the color shown only. I love tops like this for something cute around the house, or something casual and still cute when you’re out and about.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

Here in the Garden

Here in My Garden

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week in June? I’m pretty sure May was the longest single month I’ve ever experienced. I’m happy to be here in the month of June. Speaking of it being a new month, that means there’s a new group gift available at American Bazaar. This pretty peachy-pink colored dress with the stylized floral print is the free American Bazaar group gift for this month. It comes in sizes fit for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Feeling cute in my new dress I decided to take a stroll through the trails at Otter Lake. There are so many lovely spots to explore there. My pose and the butterfly prop are a free group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair Market. The set comes with the pose, 2 versions of the butterfly prop (one transferrable, one not), and a pose-ball version of the pose. To get yours you’ll need to join the free-to-join Pose Fair Market group and stop by the Hazeel booth. There you’ll find the gift pose waiting.
