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.

Backyard Zen

Zen

Today is going to be a day of strength in the body and in the mind, or at least that’s what I am telling myself. In need of mental focus and physical activity, I decided to practice a little yoga this morning in my own backyard Zen Garden. You can have your own outdoor zen, and the perfect outfit for your exercises all for free. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about these fabulous freebies from NAUGHTYbits and Sweet Willows.

NAUGHTYbits 

Can you believe all the amazing free gifts for Stay at Home Club? Every time I look at their listing I see something new that I want. Most recently is this free Zen Yoga Garden gift by NAUGHTYbits. Like all the Stay at Home Club gifts, this one is free, and there’s no group required. The garden is as shown with the cherry blossom tree, potted plants, rocks, and other accessories. Even the Buddha statue is part of the garden. It also comes equipped with several animated poses for meditation, yoga, and Chi Gung.

Sweet Willows 

My yoga attire happens to be the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The pants and cropped top are free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members, however you will need to pay the gift vendor 1 linden then be instantly refunded to have your outfit delivered. The fitness outfit by Sweet Willows comes in several sizes, and has a separate color/texture change hud for the pants and top. The hud has 2 printed fabric options, and 8 solid color options.

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.

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

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

Pandemic Fashion

Staying Safe

Hey there Fab Free, I have to say that with all that is happening in the world, I am thankful for my Second Life. I’m also glad you’re here. While we are all “staying home” did you know that you can find “stay home” gifts on the Marketplace as well as in world? Some are available both in-world, and on the Marketplace. I don’t know about you, but with the higher numbers joining in on Second Life recently, I sometimes find teleporting to be cumbersome. With that in mind I picked up a few “stay home” themed free or inexpensive gifts from the Marketplace to share with you.

Koyuki

Nothing says pandemic fashion like a face mask. There are tons of face mask gifts floating around, this one is from Koyuki. It’s a unisex Marketplace dollarbie that comes in basic black or white with some minor color changes for 9 options in total. I liked that this mask is simple and fit well with some minor resizing/positioning.

:KOYUKI: 1L Mask - Stay home Stay safe

Maryfer

Who doesn’t love a little buffalo plaid now and then? I suppose it could be just me, but somehow I don’t think I’m alone on this. My and black plaid top is a freebie on the Marketplace put out by Maryfer in the spirit of staying home and staying safe. This top is fitted for Maitreya Lara only. There’s also a free men’s version of this top. It too is red and black plaid. The men’s shirt is fully unbuttoned and sized for Signature male body/bodies. There’s no specification as to whether it fits a specific Signature body, or all of them.

::Mary.:: Canvas #stayhome gift Maitreya (Add to unpack)::Mary.:: Canvas #stayhome gift for Signature (Add to unpack)

Unfazed & Zombie Suicide 

Lastly, the hand sanitizer spray I’m using is a free collaboration between Unfazed and Zombie Suicide. This fun animated freebie worked well with my AO and static poses. The bento animation makes your avatar appear to pull the spray from a pocket, spray hands, replace the sanitizer in a “pocket”, and then rub the sanitizer in. It also has the added option of letting you pick how frequently your avatar will bust out the hand sanitizer. You can get your copy of this free animated hand sanitizer on the Marketplace.

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.

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.

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.”
