Summer Sun

Summer Sun

Yellow, it’s a vibe for me this summer. I just want to be warm, happy, and someplace sunny! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I know I cannot complain, especially not when I have the awesome Fab Free community to be part of. Truly, I am thankful. For this look I picked up both the top, and the pants for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all the what, where, and how.

Aquara 

I was honestly surprised at how much I like this free top only because until now Aquara is not a brand I was familiar with and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s super cute on, and the textures are really nice. This halter top is a free group gift, and the group is free to join at this time. It comes with a color/texture hud that has 8 choices. It also has a separate hud for tinting the top any color you want. There are a few things I wanted to note about the packaging and the hud. First, the package says “Maitreya” on it, but don’t worry there are more sizes. Second, the color/texture hud when first attached will show you the Aquara Marketplace page. I was confused at first! lol There’s a tab on the side however that when clicked will take you to the color/texture choices.

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

Aurora’s Closet 

These capri style jeans with rainbow pockets are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Aurora’s Closet. I wanted something new and cute to go with my halter top, and these capris fit the bill. These free denim pants come in black and in blue for extra versatility. Overall I was pretty pleased with these. They are a great addition to my closet and you can’t beat the price!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), EBody (Classic, Curvy), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Feed Your Soul

Feed Your Soul

So I’d been having one of “those” days. I’m sure that you know the type I am talking about. No major tragedies, just a lot of little things not quite going the way they should and wreaking havoc on your mood and the plans you’d made. Yep, definitely a Thoseday. Still, I managed to find some zen, take a moment to enjoy some music, a purely indulgent latte, and the company of this silly orange fur-ball. While the day might have been a mess, just that moment and a few freebies from Vision and e.marie managed to salvage my mood. I’d call that a silver lining.

ViSion

Now, about those freebies I mentioned. My bandeau top and cargo pants are both from Vision. I picked them both up at the Vision stop at the Second Life 17th Birthday Shop & Hop. The top is the free SL17B gift, while the pants are a free Vision group gift. You’ll need to wear the Vision group tag (there’s a group joiner there) for the pants. The Vision group also happens to be free to join at this time. The top has a texture change hud with 5 choices. The cargo pants come in the color shown with a hud that lets you change the color of the drawstring and metal parts.

Bandeau Top Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy
Cargo Pant Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

e.marie

My latte with it’s fluffy whipped topping and cute little particle effect is by e.marie. You’ll find it waiting for you at the e.marie stop at the SL17B Shop and Hop event. It’s their free Second Life Birthday gift. The latte is copy, and has a bento hold animation. If you’re like me, after cruising around the enormous Shop and Hop shopping event you’ll be thankful for the sweet pick-me-up!

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza Freya

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

Hello hello Fab Free’rs. Something occurred to me today. In my teens I might have worn this look to a party… now I still love the look, but I wore it to the farmer’s market. I think my age might be showing a little bit. lol Either way, I’m enjoying my Sunday and looking super cute doing so. I picked up just about everything for this fun style for free at the current round of ACCESS. It’s a birthday/anniversary round for the event and I have to say it’s the biggest round of ACCESS I have ever seen.

Aline did a gorgeous job of showing off some of the free ACCESS gifts as well in her recent pose “A Little Bit Boujee” so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. As she mentions, ACCESS runs from now until July 8th, and the ACCESS group is free to join so there’s time if the sims are full. There’s the main sim and a cam sim open. Now I have a lot to share with you, so let’s get to it!

Volthair

So technically this is a mens hairstyle from Volthair, but I love it anyway. Even Blue said it looked good, score! It comes in a full fatpack with all the color huds, and a hairbase hud for Catwa and Omega compatible heads. The Fitz hairstyle by Volthair is free at ACCESS. To get your copy you’ll need to join the free-to-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

I feel like this safety pin jewelry set by Fake Society is an updated much cooler version of the plain ol’ safety pins I once wore as jewelry. The set is also free at ACCESS, and it includes earrings (shown) and a septum piercing (not shown) in silver, gold, and black. I would definitely consider this set unisex. The septum piercing I felt was a bit big for my face even with some resizing, which is the only reason I chose to not wear it.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS gift by Cult. They are called the Rou rings and they are sized for Belleza, Slink, Vista, and Maitreya hands. This bento set comes in silver, and gold.

Movement

I couldn’t resist this fun tumbler drink by Movement. I love the little horns on the lid, and purple is a favorite color of mine. This cup has a bento hold pose, and can be sized via touch menu. It’s also another awesome freebie at ACCESS.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS gift by Sixx. This black pushed up crop top with the iridescent looking alien face is super cute. It is also somewhat revealing if you don’t wear something under it. I dug through my closet and pulled out an undershirt by Vinyl to wear with my Sixx alien shirt, and it worked out pretty well I think. Otherwise, be bold and show some skin!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

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.

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

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

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.

Sunny Days Ahead

Sunny Days Ahead

Hello there Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got some terrible wanderlust. I’ve also been wanting a reason to dress in something nicer than sweats and oversized t-shirts. Then I realized something, we all have the perfect excuse to dress up if we want to, ourselves. With ourselves as the reason, I have three free gifts to share with you as the how. Varsity and La Perla each have free Stay at Home gifts that match well together. These free posh sunglasses by Veyard complete the look perfectly. You know how this works from here, keep reading for more information and check out the credits at the end.

Varsity

My skirt and cropped top are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Varsity. This cute and classy outfit comes in three sizes, and has a color change hud for the top and the skirt. In the color change huds there are six solid colors for the top and the same six colors for the skirt so you can mix and match. There is no group needed for this free gift.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

La Perla

These cute heels are a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. You’ll find them at La Perla. The black and gold details make them stylish and unique, the red sole makes them timeless.  These pretty shoes come in 5 sizes and should be able to be worn by classic avatars though they do not include a shoe base. Like all Stay at Home gifts, there’s no group required for this freebie.

Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya, Ocacin, Belleza, Standard Mesh L/R

Veyard

Finally, these sunglasses by Veyard were actually the inspiration for my entire look. I love the sleek black shades with the detailed gold floral accents. They are a free gift, no group needed, at the Men and Women Jail event. You can pick them up for free for the duration of the event at the Veyard booth.

Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

Summer at Otter Lake

Summer at Otter Lake

Hello Fab Free, happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have been aching for some sunshine and adventure. A few days enjoying the sights and sounds of a coastal town or a lakeside retreat sound heavenly. So I think that’s just what I’ll do! Time to pack up the doggos, throw on something casual and cute, and hit the road.

For this post I picked up a few essentials for my adventure. The scooter complete with the picnic basket full of adorable puppies by 777, as well as my floral bikini and shorts. They are both from Safira. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get all three without breaking the bank. Credits will be at the end like always.

777

This scooter is so detailed, and it is ridable! It comes with a camera hud, and there are tons of options in the scooter’s touch menu. The best part in my opinion? You can have a passenger! That’s right, you don’t have to cruise alone if you don’t want to. There are so many choices for customizing how you ride, as well as fun features like a horn and lights. I could spend this entire post talking about them. I won’t, instead I’ll let you discover them for yourself. This scooter by 777 is just 10 linden on the Marketplace.

Safira 

Safira has so many group gifts it’s almost difficult to keep up with! Not a bad problem to have if you ask me. Their most recent group gift happens to be these summery floral shorts. The shorts come in several sizes and have a texture change hud with 3 equally pretty floral choices, as well as options for the metal bits. Also at Saifra, my bikini top is the top half of an adorable tropical print bikini that is one of the many Safira Lucky Board prizes. The Safira group has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

The socks are staying on

FabFree: The socks are staying on

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and if you aren’t celebrating Christmas, I still wish you a happy eve! Today in my blog post I am featuring news about a free instore group credit at Kaithleen’s (and I’ll tell you about what I picked up), as well as some adorable free holiday socks by Caboodle!

It’s on Kaithleen!

Kaithleen’s has put out a really generous holiday gift for her inworld group members!  VIPs (and it’s only 50L to join if you are not currently a member!) can head to the reception desk and click the credit sign that will load you up with a gift card worth 300L!  You can use it on purchases in the store, or at events!  I picked up the Franzy Bodysuit at Winter Spirit that was priced well under the 300L limit and I still have a fair balance left on the card for future purchases 🙂

I’m not kidding.. the socks stay on

For real…  If I had socks like this in real life, they would stay on, and I mean throughout everything because don’t they look so snuggly and warm and totally adorable too? How could I take them off?   You can pick these Holiday Edition Ballerina Socks as a free gift at the Caboodle Display at Shop & Hop until January 6th.
