With such a massive world to explore like Second Life, it’s hard to keep up with all the Hunts and fairs and events happening all over the place. Happily, I stumbled across one I had never seen before and it turned out to be a bonanza of gifts and awesome shopping!

The Beauty Sales Event is a monthly event opening on the 21rst of the month and closing again on the 11th.  Since I’m new to this event I don’t know if each round is so packed full of gifts or if this is a special occasion. But I gleefully bounced around the booths picking up allll the free gifts.

Like this simply gorgeous sweater from Hilly Haalan. Most of you know Hilly Haalan is a major designer on Second Life and with clothes like the ‘Jazzy Sweater’ you will see why. This sweater is so perfectly made you can zoom in and still see details and there’s the perfect fit, even when moving around. Plus, and here is where I get all giddy, you get a HUD with 25 choices to change the color of the main sweater, the cuffs and trim, the buttons, the leather bits around the buttons, and even the cords holding the buttons! That is a LOT of choice! There’s also a resizable scarf with 25 choices of color/patterns as well. A-maze-balls!

The Beauty Sales Event still has about 2 weeks to go so you have some time to get over there but don’t miss it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a coupe other gifts to show off ’cause I couldn’t pick just one.

Hey there, FabFree! I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful time and ate alllll the good stuff! I sure did! And we have leftovers for days.  Of course, today was Black Friday here in the real world. I’m still stuck in quarantine here in New York but I’m sure some folks went out and got those deals.

I stayed in and got a great deal too! And didn’t risk messing with the Covid. I picked up this super chic little plaid dress from Pink Mango Fashion for free! Well.. free or 10L depending on how you look at it. This is the ‘Jolene’ mini dress and it’s the free gift for the TeleportHUB group. I say 10L because that’s what it’ll cost you to join the group. Just 10 little Lindens! Just this dress alone is worth the one time join up fee. Plus there are tons of free gifts for you once you do join up!

So don’t delay… put on that tag and grab your freebies!

Like the latest Sense Event! This round is chock full of great shopping of course. But this round’s free gift is really something special. This is the ‘Nini Dress’ from Alter and you can pick it up for free just for joining the Sense Event Group which is also free.  Like all of Alter’s things, this cozy little dress is beautifully made and fits perfectly. So hurry over to the Sense Event and grab one for yourself. But don’t delay… this round ends December 8.

Sweeter as the days go by

Sweeter as the days go by

Well, hey there FabFree! Long time no see!  I am finally settling into the new place here in New York. Road tripping all the way from Texas was quite the adventure with all my kitties in tow. But we all did great and it really was smooth sailing. But wooowee, it’s cold up here compared to Texas! It’s time to break out the boots and snuggly sweaters in real life!

Ahlure is breaking out the sweater for us in this months free Group Gift too. This is the ‘Snuggles’ dress.  Now, the interesting thing about this dress is that you get two patterns on the HUD; this leather patch one I’m showing and a stripes all over one. Then you get a color picker so you can tint your own colors to your hearts content.  I know I have a couple of shoes/boots and socks combos I will be using since I can make the dress match perfectly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

A nifty new dress needs some nifty new boots, right? Of course! I picked up these “Steampunk” boots by La Perla for just 1L over at the Orsy Event . Like anything ‘steam’ and/or ‘boots’, these are going to get a lot of wear from me!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

As it slowly slips into the cold season, I am trying to enjoy the last bit of T-shirt weather before the snow starts to fall.  Luckily, in Secondlife I do not have to wait until warmer weather to wear this cute crop top I found for free at the Infinity Event by Waifu Supreme.  The Infinity Event is running until November 15th, so you will have to hurry to pick up this top as well plenty of other free gifts offered by many of the other designers there.

What better to go with a crop top than a tiny skirt?  I picked up this great mini skirt from Line Essay for free on the marketplace.  It has a punk theme with the words “hate” on it that creates an interesting geometric pattern.  To finish up the outfit, I found the Kore makeup set of freckles and a lip tint for 1L at Viena from their gift wall.

Keepin’ it Cozy

Keepin' it Cozy

The weather sure is turning crisp these days (I hear parts of Canada are under a heavy blanket of snow already….yipes) so it’s definitely time to pull out the sweaters!  Or even better…time to get some new ones to make the thought of chill winds just a little more bearable!

Belted Warmth

There’s a new group gift at LSR!  As per usual, they’re being super generous with a giant wall of gifts and lucky boards.  Their latest gift is this belted sweater dress that kinda hits the perfect balance between sexy and smart.  It comes with an HUD to change to 30 different colours! Woo!  To get this (and a pretty big pile of other gifts) just join the LSR group for 99L.  Super worth it as they come out with new group gifts all the time!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Best Tressed

The lovely brand Pr!tty have put out some new group gifts as well, which is always something I look forward to.  This month there are two hairstyles on the mantle over the fireplace in the mainstore.  I’m showing you the appealingly tousled Rose that comes in a full fatpack of colours.  You can get yours by joining the Pr!tty group for free!  Yup, two whole new hairstyles for 0L.  Gotta love it!

Keep it Cozy, FabFree!

A Good Weekend

A Good Weekend

It’s a gorgeous weekend, FabFree!  I hope that you’re feeling just as good as I am today, that the sun is shining just right, the coffee tastes perfect and the odds are ever in your favour.   Let’s get into the weekend goodies with a lovely free gift from Dreamcatcher that can’t be missed!

Catch it!

We’re celebrating a Birthday over at Dreamcatcher this weekend!  If you join their free group, you will gain access to 500L in free store credits!  Whut!  That’s so generous!  I picked up the Rochelle’s Dark Soul dress (299L) that kinda made me feel like a warrior elf – slash business woman.  I dunno.  It’s a mood.  You’d better get there quick though, this gift is only available on November 7th, 8th and 9th.   Also, you have to spend the credit before November 30th, so pick up a few goodies while you’re there.   I got three outfits with this generous gift card!

Autumnal Night In

Autumnal Night In

Friday night calls for a bit of chilling at home!  I’m lighting the fire, then burrowing  under some blankets, I think.  Or maybe I’ll get dressed up kinda fancy and have a Zoom Party.  Who knows.  All’s I know is that I am NOT crossing the threshold of my front door tonight!

Autumn in the Air

QE is holding a fun Autumnal Hunt at their mainstore right now!  It’s packed with cute outfits, shoes and even some home decor items.  Each item costs only 25L and a bit of sneaky hunting.  You’ll need to look all over the place in the shop to find these cleverly hidden goodies! You’re looking for a small pumpkin.  I’ve got the Arabella dress on (which has a short sleeve and long sleeve version, as well as several different texture options in the HUD), and the Stacy Booties which come sized for Belleza, Maitreya, eBody Curvy, Legacy and Slink.  I also picked up the lovely carpets and the basket of pillows you see.  Everything you need for the perfect night in!  The QE Autumnal Hunt runs until November 18th, so get yourself over there!

The Things We’ve Made

The Things We've Made

I’ve seen some strange things in Second Life in my time.  You know, like twin cat women, or a seagull smoking a cigar, or even a giant tree that threw sap at passers-by.  What an odd world we’ve all created together!  There are also beautiful places, magical places, and dreamy places.  Winter Moon is where I went to find a bit of solace today!

Midnight

There’s a new subscriber gift at Wasabi!  This long hair and hat are just what the doctor ordered today, and it’s completely free!  To get your own copy, just click on the board above the display of gifts (it’s on your left when you enter the store) and then click on the gift box.  It was so easy I thought I must have done something wrong, but nope… there it was in my inventory!  All too easy.

Ramen Time

This long and quite revealing dress is the latest group gift from Ramen.  I had to add the little pasties for a bit of modesty, but perhaps long hair might also do the trick… Anyway, it’s spooky, red, and super sexy!  Get it for free when you join their free group.  There are also a few other gifts while you’re there.

The Quest for Carbs

The Quest for Carbs

There was a thing I used to do on weekends that would totally get me through the rest of the week back in the early 2000’s.  I’d hop on the subway, head downtown to the mall, buy a bunch of stuff I didn’t need (it was often some form of fun costume jewelry, a t-shirt I didn’t need and possibly some butterfly-shaped hairclips…but anyway) then head to get some horribly unhealthy food.  Wouldn’t that be nice right about now?

Don’t be Jelly

There’s a new group gift at Envious!  The shirt, dress, garter and shoes all come in this generous group gift and even better, the group is currently free to join!  I’m not sure for how long, since it actually says the price will go up November 3rd…so hop on this while you can before it changes!

Update:  Looks like this group will be free to join until November 30th!  The date in the inworld group was just a typo!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

In the Bag

Memoire also has a new gift out, and it’s this fun little purse.  It’s shaped like a Happy Meal, which is kinda awesome, really.  I think that’s what made me think of trips downtown to eat copious amounts of trans fats.  Anywho, the group is free to join, and the bag comes in a bunch of different colours too.  Sweet!

I think fries come with this shake!
