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

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. 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.

Damn Good

Damn Good

Alright, so Valentine’s Day might officially be over, but there’s no reason you can’t continue to celebrate. Even more, there’s no reason to not continue picking up all the fantastic February/Valentine’s Day group gifts still available. My sexy sporty look is mostly thanks to a new group gift at SPIRIT, while my fancy beverage is a current group gift at e.marie. You know the drill by now, keep reading for more information, and get full credits at the end.

SPIRIT

I’m going to be honest with you, I love the way this group gift outfit from SPIRIT looks on. However, I was a little unsure about how to style it. I went with a somewhat sporty look, and I think it worked out alright. haha However you choose to style this fun, sexy outfit, it’ll look great. The outfit includes the strapped bra top, and matching pants with front panel cutouts. Both the top and the pants have customization huds that let you change the color/texture of the straps, and the metal bits on the bra top. A few of the options have cool phrases like the one I chose that reads “I may be a bad girl but I’m a damn good woman.” Can’t argue with that! To get yours, you’ll need to join the SPIRIT group which has a join fee of 19 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

e.marie

You can never go wrong with a group gift from e.marie. This sweet little latte is the Valentine’s Day group gift at e.marie. It has a bento hold pose built in, and a cute particle effect. To get your hands on this foamy confection, simply head over to e.marie and click the gift vendor while wearing your e.marie group tag. The e.marie group has a join fee of 50 linden. This group gift is waiting outside the store with the other Valentine’s Day themed items.

The Keys to My Hearts

Keys to My Hearts

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Free! Can you believe all the freebies, cheapies, and sales available around the grid right now? It’s a bit overwhelming, but in a good way. For my post today I’ve got 2 great group gifts, one from Safira, and the other from Cae. I bet you can guess which one is which! Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about each of these lovely group gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

Safira 

This cute cropped top with it’s pink bustier is too cute for words. I like the denim look to the bustier and the hand-drawn look to the hearts. It is the latest group gift at Safira. The top comes in a handful of sizes in the color shown. To get yours (and take advantage of the wall of group gifts) you’ll need to join the Safira group which has a join fee of 50 linden.

Sweeter Than Sweet

Sweeter Than Sweet

Alright, I’ll admit it, I’m almost as big a sucker for sweets as I am for freebies, which makes this time of year particularly dangerous. Hi there Fab Free’rs, I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of more or less Valentine’s Day themed goodies to be had around the grid. I’ve been sneaking some pre-Valentine’s Day chocolates while wearing the latest group gift from Boubouki and the gorgeous Saturday Sale offer from Cae. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details about each of these finds, and the credits will be listed at the end as always.

Cae

I’m starting with the Saturday Sale item at Cae because it’s of course a limited time offer. This gorgeous “Ayana” jewelry set is just 75 linden. The vendor will also allow you to send this necklace and earrings set as a gift. The earrings and necklace are both able to be sized via touch menu and there is a color change hud. The hud lets you pick from several beautiful presets for the gemstones as well as the metal parts of the jewelry.

Boubouki

As I mentioned above, my pretty red crop top is a free group gift at Boubouki. At this time the Boubouki group is free to join and there are 2 group gifts available. This red top has some pretty red detailing at the bottom hem, which I completely failed to show in my photo (sorry!) and comes in several sizes. To get yours you’ll need to go to Boubouki and join the free-to-join group, then pay the gift vendor 1 linden, you’ll be instantly refunded 1 linden, and your gift will be delivered to you.

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

Hopeful Romantic

Hopeful Romantic

I often hear the phrase “Hopeless Romantic” and this time of year, when we are nearing Valentine’s Day I would rather think of myself and others as “Hopeful Romantics.” The world needs romance. The latest group gift at Dead Dollz is this romantic little dress, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day. These letters, books, and flowers adding to the romantic setting is a free Lucky Letter Board prize décor set at Tentacio. Keep reading for details about each of these finds, and get all the credits at the end.

Dead Dollz

I love it when Dead Dollz has a new group gift. The gifts are always beautiful, and this dress is definitely that. It includes a color change hud that lets you pick the color for the dress and the belt. There are seven colors to choose from ranging from white to red, with several pink choices in-between. The dress comes fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden.

Tenatcio

Not too long ago I had fun with one of the free Lucky Letter Board prizes at Tentacio for my “Healthy Life” post. This time I am happy to share with you another free Lucky Board prize from Tentacio. This prize is the “Flower Memories” décor set, and it includes the envelope with flowers, the scattered letters and book, and the open book with flowers and scattered petals. Each of these lovely décor items is copy and can be resized. There’s no group required to participate in the Lucky Boards at Tentacio, so this set is completely free you just have to wait for your letter to come up.

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.”

Healthy Life

Healthy Life

Hey there Fab Free’rs, happy Friday! In my experience I feel at my best when I take the time for some self-care. Tentacio wants us to be the best version of our Second Life selves with their “Healthy Life” décor set. While you’re at it, you can look the part with this cropped camo top by Chic Moda. The set from Tentacio, and the top from Chic Moda are Lucky Letter board prizes. Keep reading for more details on both lucky finds, or check the list of credits at the end of the post.

Tentacio

There are multiple lucky letter boards at Tentacio with cool prizes like this “Healthy Life” set. The best part, there’s no group required to participate. This set includes grouped “healthy” food and lifestyle décor as well as a hold-able version of the berries and the pink water bottle. All you need to do to get your copy of this free set is head over to Tentacio and slap the board when your letter pops up.

Chic Moda 

Chic Moda has 3 lucky letter boards, and one of them has this cute little cropped top. It comes in the camo pattern shown with the word “Fierce” in script across the front. That’s a label I am completely on board with! The Chic Moda group is required for the lucky boards, and there is a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Purely Romantic

Purely Romantic

Everyone needs a little romance once in a while, even in their wardrobe. Hi Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to share with you this sweetly romantic gift top from Mangula, and a pretty floral manicure set from Beautiful Hustler. Keep reading for the details, credits are listed at the bottom as always.

Mangula

Mangula has several free gifts, the only catch? You need to be a member of their subscriber group. I picked up a fat pack of the Nina Blouse for free. It comes in quite a few colors, and each color pack has multiple sizes. I love the undeniably romantic look to this bare shoulder copped top.  Once you’re at Mangula, be sure to click their subscriber to join (it is free and does not use a group slot) then click the gift vendor and once your subscriber status is verified, your free gift will be delivered.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Tonic Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Beautiful Hustler

A romantic look just wouldn’t be complete without a pretty manicure. I picked up this bento floral manicure set by Beautiful Hustler on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. I really should have snapped a closer photo so you can see the nice detail on these stiletto nails. It comes in 3 pretty floral patterns with nails to fit Maitreya or Slink bento hands.

Tiptoeing Through the Tulips

These Boots

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog! I’ve got group gift goodness from Eudora, Carol G, and Lunaria to share with you today. These boots may or may not have been made for walking but they sure look cute on. They also happen to be a new group gift at Eudora. My leg tattoo is also a group gift. This tattoo is one of several group gifts at Carol G. Lastly, if you’re doing any landscaping on a budget I suggest heading over to Lunaria and picking up one or all of their many group gifts. Keep reading for more details, or scroll on down to the bottom for full credits and links.

Eudora

I love the detail in these high heeled boots by Eudora. They are the most recent group gift at Eudora with a one time group join fee of 50 linden. The boots come in a Maitreya fit only, with a loose fit option. They also have a texture change hud so you can wear the brown and tan version shown, or a gorgeous black version of the boot. The hud also allows you to pick from a few presets for the color of the sole and the metal parts of the shoe.

Carol G

This whimsical inspirational tattoo is one of quite a few group gift tattoos at Carol G. Also, there are several male tattoo gifts. This particular gift reads “Moved by the freedom to be who it is” which I think is a lovely sentiment. The tattoo comes in several appliers. There are also 2 mini mania boards, and a free tattoo raffle for Carol G group members. The group has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Lastly, while this is not a “new” gift, it has been updated to included Legacy body appliers.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, Legacy, Slink

Lunaria

I love fall and winter, however I think I’ve been secretly missing spring. Feeling the desire to add some spring-like elements to my landscape without spending a lot of linden, I decided to poke around at Lunaria. Much to my delight I found quite a few free group gifts for all seasons, and there are lucky letter boards with clothing items. Not to mention the fact that the Lunaria group is free to join. I picked up this pretty pink tulip field for free just by joining the free group and clicking the gift vendor.
