Happy Birthday America! Celebrate with Freebie Goodness

Happy Independence Day to America! Many of the wonderful designers have placed gifts out that reflect the colors of the American flag. There is so much free goodness out there it’s hard to know where to start! Be sure to grab these while you can.

I have decided to show you 3 swimsuit outfits today. The first comes from Ayiki 4th July Special free. this suit has so many fine details on it that really takes it up a notch. Second is the Baboom Fitmesh that is a group gift. No worries the group is free to join. I paired it with the free gift July 4th necklace from Baby Monkey. Last but certainly not least is another group gift from Paisley Daisy; the Tides Alive Patriotic Frill suit. And oh! I wandered over to Tukinowaguma or TnO when I saw there was an outlet sale happening. I got this cute, edgy hair style named Preem there for only $100L.

This first shot shows you the front & back views of the Ayiki gift.

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. :-( But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! :-) My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

Wicked Peach Advert Wicked Gift

Blogging soon!

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we're CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! :-D

Pink Fusion (Part 4) Pretty in Pink

Alright, I’m back with some more Pink Fusion for you! This one will be the last of the Pink Fusion Hunt showcase! lol Don’t miss out on these awesome hunt gifts, at $5 Lindens each they really are a steal.

Putting Myself In A Time Out

Snapshot_002

Hey Fabulouses!  It’s just me again, back with a time sensitive gift I wanted to share with you.. (and some other news too!)

As a special Mother’s Day Gift (24 hr offer only!!), WoW Skins has placed out their Vanessa Skin in the tan skintone as a free gift for everyone!  There is no need to join the group to take advantage of this offer.  This gift includes all kinds of options and appliers that you’ll be needing to match up with your meshy bits!  I am in a bit of a rush to get this news out to you, so I don’t have a close up of the skin, but I will include the vendor photo below for you to get a good look at it if you want to see it  before you head down to pick it up.

My Envy Me Dress is made by Sassy! and is available as a free gift at FabFree Headquarters, along with 59 other very fabulous free gifts!!  Xiu has previously shown these Damara White Sandals by Baby Monkey [HERE] before as a free FFHQ gift, however I wanted to mention that they have been updated to work with the Slink Mid Feet now!  *SQUEALS*!

OK, here is the WoW Skins Vanessa Vendor Ad as promised…

Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone

A Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone, originally blogged [HERE] at Fashion Clinic

I was looking through the blog right from the earliest entries and noted i used to have “Articles” not just a  fashion  agenda. So for my main posting today I thought i would see  how easy it is to create a totally free look.

I am already a member of the Fab Free group and recommend it  if you are not already it is a great group to join and its free. But I also joined the Silken Moon store group which has a joining fee of $L 50 as joining fees go not to bad. Although I have to say I will not be staying .  While the group corner has a number of nice items  most you have to pay for and to me that negates  the reason for paying a fee to joi. While I am sure they are worth the lindens if you are on  a tight budget  this is not helpful.

Here is the look I put together…………

Today I’m going to be showing you the fabulously FREE items from four of our FabFree Designer’s gift vendors at FabFree Headquarters.  The first FREE gift is from Banger Island Creations …it is a chic Sepia Days Belted Top & Leggings.  This mesh outfit comes with a HUD that gives you three different sepia color options for the top as well as for the leggings; so you can mix or match the two.
FabFree Headquarters FREE Gifts!
I’ve accessorized the tunic and leggings with our next FREE gift, CC Stingy Brim Fedora (Signature Gold), from Couture Chapeau.  I LOVE fedoras and when I saw this on, I knew I had to use it…it is unisex (scripted resizer) and the texturing is fantastic!

My shoes are the third FREE gift, Ultimate Damara White Wedges, from Baby Monkey.  These shoes are truly fabulous…they come with a HUD to match the skin and tons of nail polish options as well as options for the toe rings!

The Vintage Camera used in this shot is NOT free but is available for sale from !!Follow Us!! on the Marketplace.

The final FREE item I am showing today is the super comfy Brown Leather Accent Chair from Park Place Home Decor.  This chair has great animations and gives props…such as the cool cell phone I am holding in the photo.  The textures on this chair and ottoman are phenominal and the design fits into many eclectic home decor designs.

The Plant in the photo is available from ++LP2++ for 50L.

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we're CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. :-) My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. :-)

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! ;-)
