| SHOES |JUMO.Marion Sandal – 12 color HUD Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (Day 20/free) 

It’s hard to believe I’m still out gathering up advent calendar gifts.  But, gather I am.  Of course this time it was a completely accidental stumble upon that left me jumping with joy!

I was wondering what to blog next when I realized I completely forgot to drop by JUMO  during Christmas.  I love JUMO, and shop there whenever I get the chance.  Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of freebies in the store, so I don’t often get to blog them.  Imagine my delight when I found 14 completely free gifts at JUMO’s landing point.

These gifts are all absolutely lovely.  Many of the gowns come with matching accessories.  And, the hair gifts come with a complete complement of hairbases.  The gifts are from a twelve days of Christmas advent calendar, that has a bonus New Year’s gift.

Here’s a nice closeup of the Alethea jewelry set.  Hurry over to JUMO peeps, these gifts won’t stay out for much longer.  Until next time, shop happy!

Shop & Hop is back!  And, it’s bigger and better than ever.  120 designers have spread across 6 sims.  Best of all, each Shop & Hop participant sets out a gift. That my friends is a whole lot of freebieliciousness!

At this point, some of the more savvy freebie hunters may look at this post and think:  “Hey, Shop & Hop started December 13th – this is old news!”  Indeed, covering Shop & Hop this far into the event is by no means a scoop.  But, this is the perfect time to leisurely stroll the virtually empty sims and make sure you haven’t missed picking up any of the gifts.

One of my favorite gifts this year is the 300L gift card given by ViSion.  I used mine to buy this sexy little romper!

AS-shopback

Heads up hair lovers, there are six great hairstyle freebies just waiting to be found.

Basically, there is a little something for everyone.  So, don’t delay because Shop & Hop ends on January 6th.  To help you navigate Shop & Hop I’ve compiled a shopping directory.  Have fun everyone!

I love it when an advent calendar stays active through the season, allowing for past gift pickup.  So, put on your comfy shoes and grab a trolley, we’ve got serious collecting to do.

Let’s start at eBento.  Their advent calendar features a whopping 70 gifts, and is unlocked for group members.  Simply join eBento’s free group to start clicking your way into gift oblivion.  This round closes December 31st, so time is of the essence.

Fan’s of short and sassy dresses should head over to DM Design next.  Join their free group to collect 24 lovely little dresses from their open advent calendar.  If that isn’t enough for you, visit the group gift area to gather 8 more gifts.

Next, head over to Glitter to raid their unlocked advent calendar.  Glitter’s group is temporarily free to join, so why not indulge?

Legendaire also has several Christmas gifts dotted around the store for its group members.  Normally, Legendaire’s group has a join fee, but the owners have temporarily set the fee to 0L.  Not only does the store give monthy group gifts, but it always maintains a generous group gift area.

The last store on today’s list is Analog Dog.  Today’s featured hairstyle can be found in their recently updated freeball.

Next, pop over to Scandalize for a giftaliscous experience.  The store’s group is temporarily free to join. Scandalize is notoriously generous to their group members,  Currently, members can pickup 24 gifts under the Christmas tree, along with over 20 gifts from the group area.  And, that does not factor in the numerous lucky board gifts waiting to be won.

Most of today’s items can be found on the Cosmopolitan Room’s Christmas tree.  Join the event’s fee free group and click on the gingerbread stockings decorating the tree.  Each stocking is filled with a lovely little gift.

Finish off today’s look with a visit to Euphoric.  At present, Euphoric’s group is free to join, and offers past group gifts.  The Hypnotic eyes featured above are a free gift for members of the SLF&O shopping group.  Did I mention SLF&O is free to join?

December is one of the best months for freebie hunting in Second Life!  The grid is teaming with gifts.  Advent Calendars, hunts, special store Christmas gifts, and holiday events make living large something everyone, regardless of their budget can do.

I recently discovered Applique Chic when I was out scouting advent calendars.  This store has two free advent calendars.  That’s a set of gifts for male and female avatars.  As an added bonus, the Applique Chic group is free to join, has a bank of lucky chairs, several daily manias for all to enjoy.

Today’s cozy sweater and skirt outfit is currently a daily mania gift that only needs 25 people to slap the board.  So, gather up your friends and head over to Applique Chic, it’s well worth the teleport.

AS-Nov4face

Completing today’s look requires two more teleports.  This cute little necklace is one of many gifts at the Winter Dreams Market. You’ll find lots of great gifts circling around the train decor.  Most of the gifts are free, however some aren’t, so be careful with the wild clicking.  While at the market be sure to check out their advent calendar.

Our last stop is FaMESHed.  The December 2019 round is in full swing, and let me tell you, it is loaded with awesome gifts! Today’s hairstyle, boots, buttons, and Bento rings are all booth gifts at FaMESHed.

And that my friends is a wrap.  Shop happy everyone!

HAIR |Dura.2015 Unisex Gift – Hat/Hair 5 color HUD + resize Menu (group gift/free) 
| EYES |Black Friday Bazaar.Stunner Originals.Positivity Eyes – 8 color HUD mesh eyes + appliers Catwa/Genus/Omega (group gift/free)
| TOP |Second Life Marketplace.Quartz Paris Couture.Mutiny Tee – fitmesh in tucked & loose versions (free)   
| SHORTS & SHOES |Second Life Marketplace.To Be Unique.2 Gifts – fitmesh (free)

I know, it’s been far too long since my last male themed post.  So, I thought I’d start off by doing a quick Second Life Marketplace search for freebies.   Which is where I found the free clothing for today’s look.

To Be Unique and Quartz Paris Couture supplied the male top and bottom clothing.  All of the items are fitmesh, so are wearable by both classic and mesh avatars.  Mesh avatars will probably have to use a bit of their alpha system.  Overall, fitting was a cinch.

AS-Nov3face

To finish off this look, you’ll have to teleport over to Dura and the Black Friday Bazaar.  At Dura, simply join the store’s free group to get this beanie hairstyle from their group gift area.  This style comes with a five color HUD, and includes a resize menu.

Group joining is also a must at the Black Friday Bazaar.  However, the group is fee free so it’s really no problem at all.  This event runs through December 1st and has over 60 designer booths giving out a nice freebie.  Visit Stunner Originals’ booth to pick up these vivid mesh eyes.  The gift includes mesh eyes and mesh appliers.  Thanks Stunner Originals for giving a gift everyone can enjoy!

Until next time, shop happy.

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.

Keds fans will adore these wonderful little sneakers.  They’re copy/mod for easy resize/recoloring.  Plus, the faces are numerous, making recoloring a joyous task. 

Tune in tomorrow for Back to School – Part Deux!
