Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Sarcasm

Sarcasm

Alright Fab Free’rs, I have to say I really am not in to the whole concept of a New Year resolution. I’ve made them in the past, and struggled to keep up with them, and ultimately ended up feeling guilty or disappointed in myself if my resolution didn’t work out. I think we tend to put too much pressure on ourselves to become the best brightest shiny new version of ourselves just because it’s the start of a new trip around the sun. I am all for self betterment, I just think it has to happen in my/your own time.

ZFG

For this post, this group gift hoodie top from ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) just really summed up the concept of a New Year resolution for me. Sarcasm is also my favorite kind of ‘casm, whatever that means. lol The ZFG group is free to join, and this snarky shirt is free with your ZFG group tag. Since I know my cell phone covers up part of the text it reads “My New Year’s resolution is to reign in my sarcasm. Like that is going to happen.”.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), MeshBody Legacy

Zombie Suicide

These glasses. Moons, stars, oversized lenses, these glasses from Zombie Suicide called out to me “Pru, you must take us home with you…”. Really, a must-have for me. They are the most recent group gift at Zombie Suicide, and the group has a 100 linden join fee. There are also past group gifts available. This gift has a color change hud as well that allows you to change the color of the frames, and the moon/stars so you can match these babies with everything.

Camp Quarantine

Camp Quarantine

Hello hello Fab Free! Yes, you are seeing things correctly, I am wearing a top made from masks. Honestly, even though it does make me laugh, I do kind of hope that this will be the way to wear masks one day sooner rather than later. My quarantine fashion moment is courtesy of a new group gift at Worldwide. Also, Petrichor has two new group gifts, one of which is this delicate white mandala-like tattoo. You know how this works from here, I’ll give you more details below, and full credits at the end. Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs!

Worldwide 

Sometimes it’s good to find a little comic relief in whatever way you can. Yes, this top by Worldwide is good for a bit of a giggle, but it’s also cute for a warm sunny day. This “Quarantina” bra top is a free group gift at Worldwide. You can join their group for free as well. The top comes in the classic blue and white paper mask colors shown only, and quite a few sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya, KUPS, Kupra, Slink Hourglass

Petrichor

I love this pretty upper-arm tattoo from Petrichor. It’s one of their most recent group gifts. The Petrichor group is free to join, so no reason to pass this one up. The tattoo comes in BOM layers only with a regular version and an “etched” version. Also, a little side note, Petrichor is formerly The Plastik, so that’s the group you’ll be joining.

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

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

Technicolor Rainbow

Technicolor Rainbow

As much as I love winter, I have to admit this outfit has me daydreaming about warmer weather. Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. For this post I’m really excited about the new group gift at MicRo, and Demicorn has out a group gift that I don’t know how I missed and can’t wait to share with you. Keep reading for all the whosits and whatsits and where and how.

MicRo

I really like this pleated skirt by MicRo a lot, mostly because it’s not a skirt but rather a skort. What’s a skort you ask? Skirt + short = skort. That’s right, there are mini-shorts under this mini-skirt. This free group gift has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices to pick from. Also, the MicRo store group is free to join.

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

Demicorn

I love a good lippie, in any life, and especially Second Life. This pretty matte lip color is part of a group gift applier set at Demicorn. The “Sugarplum” set has a range of lip colors in berry reds and blue-violets. The Demicorn group has a join fee of 100 linden, and there are quite a few group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Genus

Make a Scene

Make a Scene

Hello there Fab Free’rs! We’re a week in to January and I’m already in need of some retail therapy. Surely I am not alone in this. January group gifts to the rescue! Seriously though, I feel like a badass boss babe in this group gift dress by Byrne, and these killer group gift sunglasses by Psycho Barbie. Keep reading for info on how to get both these fantastic gifts, and please excuse me while I go make a scene.

Byrne

I’m a big fan of the colorful brocade-like pattern on this dress from Byrne. It comes in this “berry” version shown, and a second equally awesome “purple” version. I’m also really digging the sleeve length and the mock-turtleneck. The Byrne group is free to join, and you can pick this free group gift up in the past notices. Also, there’s a matching men’s shirt group gift.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Psycho Barbie

While scrolling through Flickr I came across the ad for these sunnies by Psycho Barbie and I had to have them. Had to. They are the latest group gift at Psycho Barbie, and they have quite a few style options for the lenses. Also they have resize scripts, hallelujah! The Psycho Barbie group has a join fee of 100 linden.

In the Stacks

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I have to say, I was so ready to see this super cute sweater dress group gift at ChicModa. Not only is it lovely on, it isn’t red, or green! I even got a compliment from my guy while wearing it. Right now you can join the ChicModa in-world group for just 25 linden. This dress is the January group gift, and there are past group gifts still available. Also, don’t forget to check out the group-only Lucky Letter boards while wearing your ChicModa group tag. Happy Shopping!

Christmas Time is Here

Christmas Time is Here

Where did the weekend go? By this time Friday it will be Christmas Day! Can you believe it? I’m half in denial myself. lol Two things that seem to go hand in hand for better or worse are Christmas and shopping. I finally worked my way through the behemoth that is the Holiday Shop & Hop event and as overwhelming as it can be, I have to admit it was worth it. My inventory now flooded with gifts, I thought I’d share a few with you.

If you’ve never gone to one of the Shop & Hop events before, there are a few things you should know. First, there’s no group needed for the gifts, just click the gift box at each of the designer’s booths. Second, there are eight sims to wander through. Yes, I said eight. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of shopping and hopping. For this post I chose to share the free Holiday Shop & Hop gifts by Eclectic Stars, Unicorn, and Infiniti. Enjoy, and happy shopping Fab Free’rs!

Eclectic Stars

When it comes down to it, one of the labels that could be used to describe me (and I think most of us in SL) is “gamer.” Eclectic Stars put out the perfect Christmas sweater for any gamer girl as their free Shop & Hop gift. It has a Christmas tree on it made entirely of Space Invader-style aliens. :O So cute!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Classic), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer

Unicorn

As a photographer and a blogger, I’ve got an ever-growing collection of backdrops and photo props and I like it that way. The free Shop & Hop gift by Unicorn is this fun wintery holiday outdoor setting complete with a snowman, evergreen tree, and a festively decorated front porch. If you’re in need of a cute backdrop for some holiday photos, don’t skip this one.

Infiniti

Finally, this pose with the snowball and falling snow are part of the free Shop & Hop gift by Infiniti. The gift includes a set of 3 poses that include a snowball prop. The falling snow is a wearable add-on, and I have to say I love the detail of the pretty snowflakes. Almost like shoes, I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many poses! For now I’m off to go see if I can’t sneak up on Blue with this snowball. Wish me luck! lol

Snowfall

Snowfall

I’ve always thought of the notion of a first snowfall as something magical and wonderous, though admittedly that’s partly due to having experienced so few in my lifetime. That said, there are quite a few free gifts waiting on the Christmas tree inside the Cosmopolitan Sales event, and these delicate snow flurries by Persefona are my favorite. For this look I also picked up the free Cosmo gifts by Limited Addiction, IDTTY, and ARTE. I also happen to be wearing a cute little sweater dress by Rebel Hope that you can find inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the details.

Persefona

These pretty little snow flurries are an attachment by Persefona. You can get them for free at the Cosmo event by joining the event group and clicking the stockings on the Christmas tree just inside the entrance. The Cosmopolitan Sales event group is free to join. This wintery gift includes a resizer hud that lets you easily adjust the size of the snowy attachment.

Limited Addiction

My sassy cute knee-high socks and ankle boots are also free at Cosmo, courtesy of Limited Addiction. You’ll find them waiting on the Christmas tree with the many other free gifts. These sassy holiday themed shoes come with a texture change hud for the socks that lets you pick from a few holiday color combinations.

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

IDTTY

Both my eye makeup and lip-color are part of the free Cosmo group gift by IDTTY. Their gift is a festive makeup “Jolly Days Collection” that includes 2 eye makeup looks, and 2 lipsticks. I’ve added the vendor photo below so you can get a look at both of these gorgeous holiday makeup looks.

Appliers Included: Genus, Catwa, Lelutka
IDTTY FACES - JOLLY DAYS

ARTE

Most skins include a browless option which makes experimenting with different brow shapes and colors a lot easier and more fun. The brows I’m wearing are the free Cosmo gift by ARTE. I think they look sleek and quite natural. In this free gift you’ll find BOM layer eyebrows in brown, light brown, dark brown, blond, red, and a tint-able version. Also there are Omega, and Catwa appliers, and a brow shaper included.

Rebel Hope

Finally, this pretty sweater dress is a Marketplace find by Rebel Hope. It’s just 25 linden and includes a color change hud for the ties and metal bits. If you’re interested in a color other than red, there are several to choose from. Each color is just 25 linden on the Marketplace.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh + Alpha Layer

Cheeky Elf

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Thank you so much for being here. I cannot even handle how close to Christmas we are! I’m also finding myself both excited and overwhelmed by all the giftiness (yes I know that’s not a word) around the grid. There are so many events and advents and hunts, it’s a lot! For this post I picked up free gifts from Mister Razzor, BONDI, and IDTTY at Access, and a fun Marketplace find by The Bold Llama. Keep reading for all the details!

Mister Razzor

I think it goes without saying that Mister Razzor is a favorite tattoo shop of mine. At the current round of Access, Mister Razzor has the cutest holiday face tattoo for free. It has pretty little snowflakes near your eyes, and says “let it go.” This tattoo comes in a BOM tattoo layer only. It also comes in white as well as black. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Access event group to get this and the many other free gifts. Just look for the blue gift boxes at each vendor booth.

BONDI

These unisex wire-frame glasses are the free Access group gift by BONDI at the Access event. The glasses have resize scripts, and include a color change hud with 4 preset choices for the frames and 4 the metal parts of the frames. The same hud also allows you to adjust the opacity of the lenses.

IDTTY

Also at Access, is this lovely matte lip-color by IDTTY. This lipstick shade is one of 4 subtle matte shades in the free “Real Love Collection” gift by IDTTY. This lipstick giftset comes in appliers for Catwa, Genus, and Lelutka heads only.

The Bold Llama

Lastly, I couldn’t resist this cute holiday top by The Bold Llama that I stumbled across on the Marketplace. This cute tank-top is just 25 linden, and if “cheeky” doesn’t suit you, you’ll find quite a few other choices like “Queen” and “Lit.” Each of these fun festive tops comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it can be worn by classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Classic Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer
