Deadly Cute

Deadly Cute
I’m a sucker for good juxtaposition. So I can’t help but like “cute poisoned foodie” print on this dress by Grumble. I also dig the fact that the colors are something other than pastel. This sinister sweet dress is a dollarbie Star Spangled Hunt prize at Grumble. The Star Spangled Hunt runs until July 18th.

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

Hunt Hint: “Maid to Order…”

The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

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

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

KittyCats and Silence at SL16B


KittyCats SL16B Kitties

There is just about a day and a half left of Second Life’s Sweet Sixteen Birthday Celebration. With that in mind I thought I’d share with you a pair of the cutest KittyCats. Why? They’re the free SL16B birthday gift by KittyCats of course! These adorable fur babies are fully functioning versions of the KittyCats pets that can breed in exclusive SL16B style. There’s a male and a female cat included with the gift, along with some food to get you started. Please note that these cats, unlike the others, are no transfer. If you’re not familiar with KittyCats and how they work, I’d suggest checking out the KittyCats in-world store for all the latest information. There are actually quite a few spots you can pick these adorable little guys up for free. I’ll add in those links below. Also, if you’re unfamiliar with KittyCats, yes, they are tiny now, but they’ll grow! Here’s maybe the coolest part, this year for the first time ever these KittyCats when bred will have an exclusive kitten, shown below!

Where to get the SL16B Edition KittyCats:

KittyCats Shop
SL16B So Cal
SL16B Incredible
SL16B Exhilarate

P.S. These KittyCats will be available for 2 weeks following the SL16B Event at the KittyCats Shop!

Atomic Pink

I’m sure you noticed the retro fabric behind the kitties in the top photo. It belongs to this smashing pink sofa by Silence. The “Atomic” sofa is another free SL16B gift. I’m not sure if it will be available after the event or not, so do not wait to pick this up! The sofa is PG with individual and couples poses. You can pick up this cool piece of furniture for free at the SL16B Tinseled region until July 8th.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, and Happy Sweet Sixteen to all of Second Life!

Inner Peace and Quiet

 

Inner Peace and Quiet

Sometimes everyone needs to take a moment and just bask in the quiet. I took some needed time to be alone, be silent, and quiet my mind. It’s part of how I “self care.” Second Life in a lot of ways is part of my self care also. Among many things (and a few people), this blog and the never ending quest for fabulous freebies are therapeutic. They are/it is good for my psyche. For this post I’ve got the latest group gift at gO! to share with you, and free SL16B gifts from Peaches, Libertine, and Ariskea. I hope they’re good for your psyche too.

About The Dress – 

One of the things I’ve always admired about clothing from gO! is the texture. This group gift dress is no different. The detailed textures are such that it’s easy to imagine how this dress would feel, how it would move. The gO! group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. To get your gift simply join the group, then click the gift vendor behind the desk while wearing your group tag.

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

About The Blanket & Décor

I still can’t get over the number of gifts out at the SL16B shopping event. I do wish there were more gifts for the guys, sorry gents, though I did pick up a few great décor items along side the many gifts for the ladies. One of which is this very cute summery blanket with animations, and the froggy incense holder by Peaches. Notably named “The Queen’s Peace”, this gift has single and bento PG couples poses. You’ll find this free SL16B gift by Peaches waiting in the SL16B Tinseled region.

Doesn’t this little owl planter by Ariskea look like it was made to go with the SL16B gift by Peaches? I think it definitely does. This adorable owl comes exactly as shown and is copy, mod, no transfer. You can get yours for free at the Ariskea shop on the SL16B Aurelian region.

Pears are possibly my favorite fruit. This delicious looking plate of pears is the free SL16B gift by Libertine. Along with these perfectly plated pears, the Libertine gift includes a broken plate version with scattered berries and chocolates, and a little note. This free SL16B gift is waiting in the SL16B Aurelian region as well

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here

Get Into My Car


Get into My Car

There are some fashion items that though they speak of another decade, they are timeless. I feel that way about dresses with peter-pan collars. Needless to say, I had to show this dress by Fashionably Dead. It’s their free gift in celebration of Second Life’s 16th Birthday. I think it happens to go perfectly with Lamb’s gift hairstyle for SL16B, and the gift set of pastel lip colors Alaskametro has out as their free SL16B gift. I felt like a 1960s fashion model with a modern edge. Keep reading for more info on each of these fantastic freebies.

I really love this free SL16B gift dress by Fashionably Dead. It comes in a wide range of solid colors, and has a girlish but still grown up look to it. The Fashionably Dead shop for SL16B is located in the Gilded region. This cute dress comes in the following sizes for each color: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya).

This flowing over the shoulders hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by Lamb. It comes in a full fatpack of colors. It also has a hairbase style hud with the choice of hiding or showing the hairbase feature. Lamb’s shop is in SL16B’s Tinseled region. You’ll find this generous freebie waiting there.

Lastly, but far from least, I couldn’t complete my modern retro look without some shimmery lips. Alaskametro put out a pretty Omega applier “Bubblegum” lip gloss pallet as their free SL16B gift. It has 6 frosty pastel shades, and an additional feature that lets you pick from 3 different lip shapes for each color. I think that is a really cool option. This fabulous gift also has one more unique feature that I really like, there’s a button on the hud that will send you the classic system layers for this lip gloss set. Alaskametro is in the SL16B Halcyon region, which is where you’ll find this awesome makeup freebie.

Happy shopping Fab Free, here are the details:

Proper Pinup


Seaside PinUp

Welcome to the blog Fab Free! It was a warm bright sunny day for me in Second Life today, and I felt every bit a proper pinup girl at the beach. To get the look I had some help from a few of the many free gifts in the shopping regions of the Second Life 16th Birthday event. I picked up what felt like a metric ton of freebies, however for this post I want to share with you the SL16B gifts by Narcisse, ICONIC, and Pyscho Byts.

First, the bright red polka dotted monokini is the SL16B gift by Narcisse. It comes in this single color, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only. To get yours, all you need to do is head over to the Narcisse shop in the SL16B Aurelian region and pick it up for free.

Next up, the long side swept hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by ICONIC. It comes in a fatpack of colors, and has a style hud that lets you flip the hair so it’s either over the left shoulder or the right. You’ll find it waiting for free at the ICONIC shop in SL16B’s Tinseled Region.

Finally, the reason for the trio of photos is to show you 3 of the 6 static poses in the “Lili” pose set by Psycho Byts. Each of the six poses is in what I would call a pinup style. The set has individual poses, and a pose hud. This set is one of 2 free gift pose sets by Psycho Byts just waiting to be picked up at SL1B’s Golden region.

Thanks for reading, here are the details:
