New Resident Gifts List (30 Days List) Has Been Updated

Hey there Fabulouses!  Do you remember the first few days of your Second Life residency?  I was lucky enough to join in 2010 with a group of people and we muddled our way through helping each other find things to build our avatars and inventories up with, however I know it’s not that easy for everyone.   Many shiny new avatars come to Second Life alone and have no idea where to start.  Some are even so intimidated by it that they give up.

A Fresh List Of Freebies For Noobs!

As I was updating the New Resident Gift List / 30 Days List page tonight (thank you to those that sent in notecards with tips, btw!), I got to thinking that this is quite a fabulous list full of gifts specifically for them and that as a new resident coming to Second Life this would be a huge asset.  I WISH I had come across a list like this in my flexi hair, bling shoed noobness, but it wasn’t until a few months later that I came to find FabFree.

Do a friendly good deed and help a new resident out – it will feel good!

If you are a new resident, please do take advantage of our list, and if you are a seasoned local please take a few moments to:

  1. Pass the link to new residents when you come across them inworld.
  2. Add our listing to your picks.

Thank you, and enjoy the list!

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Time for a night on the town!  I’m feeling myself today, and I’m all about being the pampered princess.  That calls for big hair, high heels, and loads of pink.  I can just picture myself now, dancing to Cyndi Lauper, clinking glasses with my girls, and rebuffing any lame-o who makes advances.  Fries before guys, amirite? Uh…right. ANYWAY…

Girls Night

I’m working that late 80’s vibe tonight with the help of a whole bunch of gifts I picked up at the Midwinter Fair!  There are so many cool free gifts there, that putting together this outfit was a breeze!  My hot pink dress comes from the BouBouKi stall, and doesn’t it just make you happy? I paired it with this uber bright clutch by Luas Urban.  I really enjoy the bright colours, as well as the charms that are hanging on the little chain.  Cuteness!  No need to join a group, just pop round the stalls and click on whatever strikes your fancy.  Hurry though, the Midwinter Fair closes on January 17th!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Proud as a…

My last little outfit detail is a gift I picked up for free at the Gacha Guardians event.  This fun peacock hair comb just tops my hair perfectly! You can move it around to fit nicely with any hair do you may be rocking at the time.  Just join the free Gimme Gacha group when you land, and pick up your free gifties! Whee!

Wait…who’s that dishy guy over there? Maybe I will dance with someone after all…

Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

B-Ball

BBallA Tickle Trunk of Goodies!

In the group notices of the Vive9 inworld group , you will find three FREE group gifts STUFFED with fatpacks (13 fatpacks to be exact!) of ladies hair, clothing items, footwear and accessories by Vive Nine, Fiore and Ryvolter!  All of these eclectic goodies touching all different genres of style made me think of Mr. Dressup’s Tickle Trunk where he stored endless amounts of random items to make up the costumes used for the skits on the show.  You’ll see… my next post is all the way on the other end of the fashion spectrum lol.  Whatever your personal style is, I’m sure you’ll find something you like!

My Sporty Look Using Three Gifts:

I put my sporty B-Ball look together using three of the gifts in the lot.

  • Fiore Allana:  This hairstyle comes with a regular version and a flip, for ease of use with clothing items and poses and offers a full range of hair colours.
  • Ryvolter Aria Denim Jacket: Fitted for the Maitreya mesh body and may work with others.
  • Vive Nine Jacky Jersey Dress: Comes in XXS – L mesh sizes + alpha layer.

Where to get this stuff

You won’t find this gift in any of the three stores inworld…  Where to find it is in the past notices of the free to join Vive9 inworld group.  You can join the group by copy and pasting this link into local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/0709215a-63e0-554d-060d-f052a3a41911/about

Christmas Snow Angel

Christmas Snow AngelA Change Of Heads

Normally I wear Catwa’s Candy or Catya mesh heads, however recently I was alerted to a sale at LAQ that had me wanting to try something new.  The newly released LAQ Bento Motion Capture Neve Head is just 500L until December 24th (will be $5000L after that!) and it comes with the beautiful face applier shown in several different skin tones and a shape – which you can edit to your liking.  Neve is a beautiful head that comes with all of the bells and whistles, and at a deal like that – I couldn’t pass it up!  I’m glad I gave it a try, it’s nice to change my head once in a while! (Can’t say that in RL, can you!?)

Group Gift At LAQ

While at LAQ, I found that they have a new free group gift too!  The LAQ group is free to join and on the back wall you’ll find the Snowflake on Tongue for LAQ Bento Heads and the animation that goes with it.

My Holiday Hair

DOE is participating in The Holiday Hunt and their prize is fantastic for the holiday season!  Once you locate the hidden red and white gift bag at DOE, you’ll have the Ruby Holiday Hunt Exclusive in a full fatpack of colours (texture change hat included!) for FREE!  Make sure you have the hint from the hunt blog…  it’s a tricky one to find without it!

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Petite Mort

Like all the gifts in this post, the cute “Let’s Get Baked” top by Petite Mort is a dollarbie gift at the Frost Fair. This fun holiday themed top comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, look for the gold and red gift box at the Petite Mort and buy it for 1 linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Slipper

The perfect house shoes for a day of holiday baking, these shoes are the dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Frost Fair. I really like the little details such as the stitching around the edges. This cute dollarbie is waiting for you at the Frost Fair in a pretty gold and red package at the Slipper booth. The shoes come in a few sizes, including a standard mesh size with a shoe base.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Boutique 187

This headband by Boutique 187 was just too cute to pass up. It’s the cherry on top of an already cute outfit. It isn’t often I have an excuse to wear such a cute and silly accessory. Not to mention that for just one linden, this Frost Fair gift is sure to make everyone smile. There are lots of great gifts to be had at the Frost Fair, no group needed and just 1 linden each.
