The Last Days of Summer

The Last of Summer

Some days even though the air is hot and sticky, you just need to be outside in it. I can’t quite describe what is so calming about listening to the sounds of the world around you and simply existing in the stillness of a late summer afternoon.

Miix Event Gifts

Summer can’t last forever, and neither will the Miix event gifts by Furtacor. The Miix event will end September 20th. Blue is wearing Furtacor’s group gift for the men. His sleeveless shirt comes in several sizes with the skull and guitars graphic shown. My watermelon print bikini is the group gift for the women. You’ll need the event group tag to claim the free gifts (they are packaged together). The Miix event group is free to join.

Men’s Sizes Included: Signature Gianni, Slink Male, Belleza Jake

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

MG Designs

Blue also picked up his shorts for free at MG Designs. They are a free gift for the Stay at Home Club. These shorts come in the blue wave-like pattern shown, and several mesh sizes. There’s also an alpha layer included in the package. MG Designs has gifts for men and women, but get them quickly. Stay at Home Club officially ends on September 25th. Some gifts may not remain available. No group is needed.

Sizes Included: Adin Bento, Belleza Jake, Fitmesh Classic, Ocacin Gamit, Onupup, Signature Gianni, Slink Male

Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

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

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

College Survival 101

CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE!
CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE! Is the only way for a college student to survive. It’s the pick me up, the all nighters best friend, hangover cure, and just what the Doctor ordered. Man did I need my morning pick me up after a long night of partying. I had to find something to wear of course, before I go out, and grab my morning cup of Joe. I pulled on my grey Hawker’s House shorts, they smell clean enough. Then ravaged through my drawers, looked under the bed, was left with the only clean shirt I had. My loud awesome go to Boyberry summer party shirt. Then I slipped on my Ellison Coastal sandals from Rebellion as I grabbed my Vespa keys and went out the door.

Rode to the best place to get coffee near campus. Then your left deciding what to order of course. Hmm…Double Double, French Vanilla Cappuccino, The Gretzky, Chocolate Timbits Iced Capp, Doubleshot on Ice, White Mocha Frappuccino, Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte, or perhaps the Espresso Frappuccino. I went with just the simple Double Double for now. MMmmm…man did I need that. Nothing like that warm caffeine coursing through your veins to get you ready for a long day of classes. BTW if you like my outfit, the entire thing is free.

All three piece are from the Allstuff Hunt going on right now. Who can pass up on this wild Summer Shirt from Boyberry? These denim Bernuda Shorts from Hawker’s House is only part of their gift. It also includes an Ombre tank. Along with another outfit and sandals in the box. These Ellison sandals are just what a guy needs for the upcoming summer months. There is a long list of Menstuff Hunt gifts for the guys. All of the items are priced $0L or $1L. Not to worry cause this hunt includes ALL the stuff groups. Which are Womenstuff, Menstuff, Homestuff, Posestuff, and Kidstuff. There is something in this hunt for what ever it is you fancy here in Second Life. Just remember to grab yourself a cup of coffee, you’ll need it for all the hunting your gonna do on this hunt. Cheers!

Rocking the Casbah

Rocking the Casbah

Hey Fab Free, I’ve got a story for you. If you’ve ever lived with someone, a roommate, a significant other, a sibling, whomever, you’ve probably walked in on some moments and thought “I wish I had a camera right now.” Well thank you technology, I had one when I walked in on Blue rocking out like there was an episode of Soul Train happening in our Livingroom. Really, it was a little bit Footloose, and a little bit Risky Business, with a dash of Saturday Night Fever complete with mood lighting and a killer stage outfit. So I did what any girlfriend would do, I took photos and posted them on Social Media.

Aside from the good giggle, and a bit of eye-candy, there is a freebie aspect to this post I promise. You too can have your very own Livingroom disco dance party with a little help from the Fab Free Group Gift Listing, and few Stay at Home Club gifts. Stay with me and I’ll tell you about each of them, and like always there will be a full list of credits at the end.

BYRNE

There’s something awesome about a man being confident enough to rock a shimmery chevron suit. The shiny bold jacket and matching pants Blue has on are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by BYRNE. It has all the style and fun of a custom outfit with non of the high-end cost. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag (the group is free to join) and click the gift vendor at BYRNE.

Sizes Included: Belleza, Signature, Slink

Z.O.E.

Our stylish skybox is a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Z.O.E. It’s a great space with detailed natural rock and wood textures that give it a modern cabin sort of feel. I’ve added. the vendor ad below so you can get a better look at it. To get your copy just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Z.O.E.

Casanova Store

Blue’s amazing dance moves are thanks in part to yet another Fab Free group gift. Fabulously Free in SL group members can help themselves to a free disco ball dance animation chimera kit gift at Casanova Store. While not shown in the photo, the disco ball/chimera kit has quite a few preloaded dances, the ability to add your own dances, and is menu driven.

Anna’s Nest 

The cool water feature in the background is not only an awesome conversation piece for any setting, it happens to be free. This is a Stay at Home Club gift by Anna’s Nest. It’s slightly tinted in my photo. The piece is modifiable, allowing you to customize it in some ways to suit your space and style.

Stay at Home Club Gift

The Green Door 

The sofa and chair come from The Green Door, and are part of their free Stay at Home Club gift. The full set includes a natural wood coffee table, and a rug. This set is copy and mod so you can rez out multiples, which I think is important with furniture and décor.

the green door - Stay at Home Club Gift

Myth

Our Livingroom rug is another freebie for Stay at Home Club. This one comes from Myth and comes in a 3 pack of different floor rugs in subtle neutral colors.

Myth - Stay at Home Rugs

Thanks for reading, I hope you have fun with these awesome freebies. Never be afraid to dance, even if it’s by yourself. Also, a special thanks to Blue for the idea in the first place.

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Physique Male, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara (+Flat Chest Size), Belleza Freya

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I think there’s some unspoken rule that when dating someone you must at some point wear one of their shirts. I’ve certainly stolen borrowed Blue’s shirts before. This time I claimed his pajama shirt; though honestly I don’t think it bothered him at all. These royal blue heart print pajamas are the his and hers Sin City 3 hunt prize at The Sissy Bar.

The Sin City 3 Hunt has multiple paths. These prizes are the male and female path prizes at The Sissy Bar priced at 1 linden each. Both the men’s pajama pants and the women’s pajama top come in several sizes. There is also an alpha layer and standard mesh sizes so these dollarbie hunt gifts are suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.

Men’s Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (s-XL) + Alpha Layer, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, Slink, TMP
Women’s Sizes Included: Classica Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Men’s Prize Hint “Hiding next to a gas pump trying to copy it so I can blend in.”

Women’s Prize Hint“Hiding behind the guardian bells so I feel safe.”

Tis The Season

Tis the Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!
