Happy 17th Birthday Second Life!  This year the celebration seems bigger and better than ever.  There are 200 merchants participating in the birthday Shop & Hop event.  Since each merchant sets out a free gift, that’s a staggering amount of goodies to collect.

I’m not even going to try cover all the cool things I’ve unpacked.  By the time I got all the pictures cropped, and style cards linked the festivities would end.  Instead I’ll tempt you with one awesome gift I found, and list a couple of links to help you navigate the 10 regions.

As if 10 regions of shopping with free gifts in each store isn’t enough, there is also a separate SL17B gift only area with over 150 interesting gifts.  Plus, for those of you that enjoy working for your gifts, there are also the ever tricky Swaginator Hunt gifts waiting to be discovered.  The party shuts down on July 12th, so let’s get busy.

My favorite SL17B gift is Addams 500 Linden gift card.  It’s fabulously generous, and more than enough to put together a complete outfit.  Simply click on the gift board at Addams’ booth to automatically receive a store credit.  Spend the credit by right clicking a vendor and selecting menu – then pay with credit.  *FYI – Addams group join fee is only 19 Lindens and offers several great fatpack gifts including today’s necklace.*

Our model’s skin and shape are Genesis Lab’s lovely gift.  The Rosie BOM skin comes in 6 tones, each of which include a no-brow option. Add hair from Limerence, a headset from Foxy, and a manicure from Koffin Nails to almost complete the look.

You’ll have to tear yourself away from all the birthday madness to pick up these lovely eyes from Demicorn.  Thanks Demicorn for creating such a unique Stay-at-Home Club gift.

Until next time, party on peeps!

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.

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!

You’ll find this fun baby-bracelet styled necklace along with many other free and 1L items in the Broken Princess Marketplace store.
FYI:  Today’s looks could be the new you!  This entire avatar, from head to toe, is free.  All of the clothing and accessories were free gifts from groups with NO join fees.  The mesh head/body is the curiously cute Jenny gift from Altamura to the London City Sim.  Altamura’s gift bodies come with a wonderful alpha system, Slink compatible feet, and face and hand AO’s.  They are a perfect starter mesh body.  However, if you have no interest in changing your makeup, skintone, or wearing applier clothing, then they are simply perfect bodies.  The included shape is copy/mod, so you can reshape the body and face to suit your personal preferences.
Until next time, shop happy!
