Last Minute Weekend Get-a-way

Coming soon to Fab Free

I decided to go on a weekend trip to do some special shopping! Now that I’m back at my hotel, I am trying on all the lovely things I found. SL17B is ending this weekend (July 12th), so it’s your last chance to grab all of the amazing gifts at Second Life’s 17th Anniversary. Today I am showing off three free gifts from the event, and a free lucky letter prize from Selene Creations.

Last chance

Some of my favourite items I collected from SL17B includes the following three free gifts I’m showing off here:

  • A hair fatpack from Sintiklia, includes a style HUD and hair colour hud essentials pack. Pick it up at the Gleaming sim.
  • A free AO from Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language; this is a full-functioning AO and very cute. It includes runs, walks, stands, flying animations and more. Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language AOs are fully Bento and valuable- so this is a great freebie! You can pick it up at Jubilant.
  • This cute dress by Safira which comes in blush, lilac and blue, sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass and Legacy. As all of Safira’s clothes are, it is well-made and adorable. You can grab it at Snowflake.

Darlin’ Darla

In addition to the great gifts at SL17B, I snatched up some awesome gifts and lucky letter prizes over at Selene Creations. Their VIP group is currently free to join for a temporary period. Included with the group join are years’ worth of past free gifts and a huge wall of lucky letter board prizes. I did the boards and walked away with a shopping spreeeee! I am showing the Darla heels from that haul.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and have a fun weekend getaway!

Guilty Pleasures

Pride V2

 

One of my favorite guilty pleasures in second life is free VIP group joins. Oh how I love them, even if I am always panicking to figure out which groups to join and leave to make openings for the best groups. Today I’ll be showing you some amazing gifts and gift cards you can get from these groups you can join currently for free!

Get me some Sintiklia!

Sintiklia has graciously made their VIP group free to join for a limited time. This group normally has a 250L fee, and there is an insane amount of amazing hair and makeup gifts. This one is certainly a keeper! Right now I have the dreamy hair on and it certainly is dreamy…

Arcane Spellcaster did it again

Arcane Spellcaster is known for their generous gift card giveaways. Right now the group is free to join and there is a 250L gift card available until June 21. Stay in the group too, as they will be releasing a 500L gift card later this month from June 22-24th, but by the 22nd the group will have a join fee. With my free gift card I purchased the Telsa shorts, which only cost 175 L for the fatpack.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya & Isis)
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Altamura

[b]elle is beautiful

b[elle] is a great designer who always has lovely monthly gifts out- called his n’ hers- two gifts which are available each month of the year for members of the b[elle] group. The group is currently free to join. I love the top for ladies this month; it has the cutest spring flowers pattern on it.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Fly Away

Fly Away

“I want to get away, I want to fly away.”  That’s so my mood today, I just wanna get away.  I’m so sick of being cooped up and want this whole ordeal to be over.  Life as we know won’t be the same for a while.  I suppose we need to get used to it.  Good thing for Second Life!  It lets me get away and even fly away, if I want.  I took to skateboarding in the virtual world.  In real life, I pulled out the table fan, set it to stationary, and put it on high.  To get that wind blowing through my hair feeling you get when you’re ripping up the street and flying through the air.

I tossed on some long board shorts and a tank top. Threw on my sneakers and grabbed the Long board.  Before you know it, I was thrashing and gleaming the cube. My outfit is assembled of freebies. The Dylan shorts are from MG Designs, and they come in several popular mesh sizes.  My blue tank top is from TwoSided.  Both of these are part of the Stay At Home Club’s long lists of gifts.  That even includes my Long board skateboard by Max Magic.  That long board has some great jump action in it.  That’s how I was able to snap this picture. If you haven’t checked out the Stay at Home Club web page, you really should.  They have freebies for both males and females, even some for the children of Second Life, as well as home and garden stuff.  Everything you need to either help you get started or to add to your Second Life.

Thanks, to The Stay at Home Club, and all the many wonderful designers who have come together in this dire time.  To bring us all a bit of comfort by giving us fantastic freebies.  Also, thank you for letting Fabulously Free in SL be part of your efforts to share and spread the word of all these amazing gifts.

Class vs. Sass

Class vs. Sass

I love unexpected twists in clothing.  Today’s look is kind of “yes I’m classy but I also know how to party”.  At least, I think that’s what the look is saying.  Read on for your very own free look that will make heads swivel, and have you feeling like a million bucks.

Back to Très Chic

The anniversary round of Très Chic rages on, and I’m happy to be showing off some more free goodies you can get by joining their free group.  It’s always hard to choose what to show you from some events, but I found this round of Très Chic to be especially difficult.  There are so many pretty things!  Today I picked up the free hair from Sintiklia, that comes with loads of different styling and colour options.  It looks effortlessly chic and put together.  I also picked up this dress from Avale that comes in a striking red hue, and can be worn with or without the bra section, so you could put your own favourite lingerie in its place if you desire.  Pretty!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I would love to see what you put together, you can always add your photos to the Fab Free Flickr Pool!

Lady in Red

Lady in Red

Red on red on red with a hint of pink isn’t always a very wearable look.  Somehow, my SL-self is able to pull it off effortlessly.  As you can see, I’m spending my time finding as many red things as I can, and then cheekily throwing some pink in for a bit of variety.  You can afford to experiment when all the parts of your outfit equation are free!

Happy Anniversary!

eBento is celebrating an anniversary, and in true Second Life style, they’re giving free gifts to all the visitors. All you have to do is join their free group, and then you’ll find a cute little birthday cake at each stall.  There’s a wide array of fun, gorgeous, and useful gifts, but it’s hard to choose the best!  Here’s what I’ve got on today:

  • FREE Hair by Sintiklia in several shades with a stylist HUD
  • FREE Dress by Eternus sized for Freya, Isis, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Book and glasses by Movement

There’s so much more to grab while you’re there, it’s really dizzying!  eBento is running until May 31st, don’t miss out!

I have that song stuck in my head now!

Dreaming Away

Dreaming Away

I seem to be spending a lot of time at the beach these days.  There’s something ever so soothing about the sound of lapping waves.  Or maybe it’s the sound of cute guys playing volleyball.  Or mayyybe a knight in shining armour galloping down the beach on his trusty steed to… wait a minute…what was I talking about?  Oh right, freebies!

Grixdale Strikes Again!

Grixdale are spoiling us this month with yet another free wearable demo for Maitreya bodies.  To get this pretty, white one-piece just head over to Uber and go to their event booth.  There’s a free version for everyone, no group join required!  Uber is running until May 22nd.

Yay Free Hair!

Sintiklia have provided The Free Dove with a new free hairstyle for all members of the free to join Free Dove group.  Once you join the group, you get access to this very customizable hair.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, with lots of different style options in the HUD.  If you haven’t visited the Free Dove, then what in the name of pants are you waiting for?  There’s lots to discover!

Now excuse me, but I have a galloping down the beach fantasy to get back to!

Look at that Bod

Look at that Bod

Aline told you a bit about the female body.  Here’s the free Classic Mesh male Body, at The Shops. It wasn’t free for me unfortunately I had to pay one Linden to get it delivered and I didn’t get a refund of my Linden. Maybe it’s a glitch, or perhaps men have to pay a Linden for it. I don’t know. Just so your aware you’ll need $1 Linden to get it.  It’s a nice looking body, has a lot of different skin shades in the HUD. I picked one out to wear and was able to nearly match my Catwa head to the body shade.

BOM

It is also Baked On Mesh compatible. If you’re going to wear old system skins, your finger nails and toenails will not match you with the skins. I also tried my Stray Dog Belleza Jake BOM skin on it. The only problem I had was the toe nails not matching up. If you wear shoes then you’re good to go.  Have fun mixing and matching the BOM skins you have and see if they’ll work. Otherwise go digging around in your inventory for old TMP skins and put them to use.

Styling

This body can be used with TMP clothes if you have any in your inventory. From what I hear, even the new Legacy clothes will fit. Which is great news for us gents, because some designers only put out clothes for Legacy at times. Otherwise, you can put the Alpha cuts to use, via the HUD, and make the clothes fit. It’ll take you some time to get it, since the Sim is full.

Waiting

It took me over 3 hours before I was able to get into The Shops to get this body. Right now we all have an abundance of time. So don’t be disheartened, keep on trying, and be patient because this body is well worth the wait if you’re just starting out here in Second Life or you’ve been here awhile and are looking for a change. You can’t beat the price, that’s for sure. In order to get this body you’ll need to:

1. Join the The Shops! group. Copying and pasting this into local chat: secondlife:///app/group/62324162-b5a6-3521-5c5e-f44fae20c4a2/about

2. TP to The Shops mainstore,which will take some time. Once there click on “get started” accept the experience (it’ll show up on the top right of your screen)

3. It will take you to an area where you can choose Male or Female, click on the body you want

4. When you land at the next spot, you’ll see “Classic Gift Edition”, pay $1 Linden and it’ll be delivered to you.

Electric Beaches

Electric Beaches

Sometimes the beach isn’t for everyone.  If you’re not in the mood for sand getting into uncomfortable spots, or for the cloying scent of sunscreen, or perhaps even the threat of seagulls stealing your fries, then maybe a trip to a fake, electric beach is what you need!  Is there such a thing in RL?  I’m sure it’s a Second Life-only phenomenon!

What Are You On About, Aline?

I dunno what I’m even talking about, but what I do know is that the Egg-a-Palooza Hunt is in full swing!  There are a whole bunch of stores participating, and each one has a FREE hunt item, as well as some discounted items for you.  I went over to Cynful and hunted for the little colourful egg.  The hunt clue is “Look around for tasty treats!”.  Inside, you’ll find this cool tied t-shirt dress that comes in the plain option I’ve got on, or a bunny-adorned one if you’re still feeling Easter-ful.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

There are more hunt items for you on Egg-a-Palooza, and you can see them all HERE.   You’ve got until April 19th to pick them all up!

Did We Mention, Stay at Home?

The Stay at Home Club keeps getting better by the day.  I couldn’t pass up this long hairdo by Sintiklia.  It’s completely free, no group join required, as with all the Stay at Home Club goodies.  The long waves come with two different bang options, and a huge huge huge array of colours to choose from.  Awesome!

See you at the (fake) beach!

Comforting Silence

Comforting Silence

At times silence can be comforting. It allows you to pause for a moment and clear your mind. Open a window, feel the breeze, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Letting your mind go blank for a few minutes, in this world of self isolation. There is no better way to be comforted then by wearing something that makes you feel that way.

Comforting Hoodie
The warm, softness of a fleece hoodie, gives you that feeling. Right now you can pick one up for free at the Neo Japan event. Gabriel has put out this black hoodie for both men and women. It is absolutely free, no need to join a group. Just click on it and it’ll be delivered to your inventory. It can be worn solo or with a black or white tank which is also provided in the folder for free. Hop on over to Neo Japan, grab this freebie before the event ends, on April 19th.
