Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Attention Fabulous Designers!

Greetings from the Fab Team!

Fabulously Free in SL has been in operation since September 6, 2007 and, in those years, our dedicated team has been tirelessly working to build our brand, our blog and our highly active group membership.  As with most operations, we have gone through phases of change to meet the needs and capabilities of the present management team and supporting assistants.  Recently we made some changes to the designer role, removing the ability to advertise via notice and there has been some confusion about how Fabfree Designers are now benefiting from the group if they are no longer able to send their daily notices.

This presents the great opportunity to clear up the misunderstandings, and reintroduce ways for Designers to participate in the Fab Free community.

First, let’s talk about what the purpose of the Fab Free group is and what it was always meant to be. Think of Fab  Free as a community, not a business. The purpose of Fab Free is to join together people with in Second Life who want to share, and communicate ways to live, dress, and enjoy Second Life without spending a lot of lindens. The ability to advertise within the Fab Free group was always secondary to the community.

There are many ways Designers can participate and benefit from Fab Free.

  • Review Packs:  You are welcome to send our bloggers review packs.  You can find details on how to do this on our Review Policy Page.  Of course you can reach out and contact your favourite bloggers personally, or all of them.  Keep trying until different writers until you are able to find a blogger that fits your designing style.  Note that we are not obligated to blog your review pack.  We blog items we are inspired to include.
  • FabFree Flickr Pool:  The Fab Free Flickr Pool is open to Designers as well. Designers are welcome and encouraged to add their vendor photos for items that are free or under 75 lindens to the Flickr pool. Shoppers, Fashionistas, Designers, and Bloggers alike view the Fab Free Flickr pool regularly for deals, and inspiration.  This flickr pool is viewed on the side bar of the blog every day! (rules)
  • Photo Challenge Sponsor:   Each Month the Fab Free Blog has a Photo Contest. Designers are encouraged to sponsor a Photo Challenge in exchange for Free ad space on the blog (graphic linked to your store SLURL or blog). This is an easy fun way to be part of the Fab Free community and get the added bonus of a little advertising.   Please contact Julianna Seriman to book your month!
  • FabFree Chat:  While it is unacceptable for designers, event owners and staff to self promote in group chat, it is a great place to get noticed just by being an active, friendly, helpful chatter.  Fab Free members are some of the most loyal shoppers on the grid. When they see a Designer participating in chat and being part of the Fab Free community, they will check out that Designer’s store in their profile, and are likely to share their positive experience with others.
  • Group Joiner:  The FabFree group joiner that was sent to you in your welcome pack displays credibility that you are offering original affordable designs and gifts.  Many designers are keeping their sign up at their stores and placing a group gift out set to the Fabulously Free in SL group.  We would be delighted to see more shops participating in this way.

We as a Team hope to foster a sense of Community within Fab Free, that same sense of Community that encouraged us to keep the blog and the Fab Free group open. We hope that this information is helpful and has opened up some new ideas and possibilities for those unsure of where to go from here.

Sincerely,
The Fab Free Team

Seahorses in Fall

Seahorse

Happy Saturday Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Even though we recently had a Free Hair Day on the blog, in my Second Life, there is no such thing as too much hair! I am certain I’m not alone in this. With that in mind, Besom recently put out a new Group Gift hairstyle called Bellinia.

The fanciful name fits this FREE hairstyle from Besom very well. It’s a lush long style with feathery waves. The Besom group is FREE to join, and well worth the effort. You’ll find previous group gifts still available, as well as a group only Midnight Mania Board at the Besom main location. Not to mention the gift is a fatpack, which means it includes every color option available! I have to admit, I felt very mermaid-like with this gorgeous hair, so the FREE gift Luminesse has out at the current round of SWANK is kind of perfect to show with it.

There are always great finds at SWANK, and the Luminesse gift is fabulous to say the least. This specific gift does not require you to wear any group tags, just stop by the SWANK event and pick it up for FREE. The gift includes this beach-y necklace shown, and a matching pair of earrings. Even though most of us don’t think of seahorses as typical for fall accessories, I think the bold colors are great for any season. Besides, this is Second Life, just about anything goes!

So I’ve got a new hairstyle, and some bling, time to get the nails done! Nail Me! has the perfect solution, as they often do. The November Group Gift at Nail Me! is a colorful set of paisley printed nails that are too pretty to miss out on. This group gift is completely FREE, and the Nail Me! group is FREE to join. So that you can see all of the beautiful vibrant colors in this nail palette, I’ve included the vendor photo below.

Fall drive in the country

Fall afternoon drive in the country.

Come along for the ride!

FA Creations has a great for fall cozy mesh outfit as their new FREE Nov GG, group is FREE to join. The 2 piece top is 1 piece tho the skirt is separate so you can wear each piece separately. You could totally wear the top with jeans. In the close up pic you can see the nice sweater texture this Millie outfit has. My lovely Yolanda Tan skin with striking lips is from WOW skins and is their new FREE Nov GG, the group does have a 400L join fee. The skin comes with and without cleavage for system bodies and as a nice bonus included is the Omega skin applier for those of you who use mesh bodies. If you are a slink hand/feet user make sure to pick up the little box of past gifts, you can find appliers for your slink hands/feet in there. Plus its packed full of gifts to enjoy. The current GG plus the past ones makes it worth the join fee. Still in the FREE hair day mood I have found you another FREE hair. You can grab this mesh hair by Static called Angelica over at the Premium Only Event for FREE with a FREE group join. The Premium Only Event runs til Nov 25th.
