Late Night Slice

Late Night Slice

Got the munchies….

We’ve all been there. It’s late and the rumbling in your stomach starts. You look at the clock and know the only place still open is that corner pizza joint. If you hurry, you still might be able to grab a pie before they close of the night.

Stars and Scars…

Tonight, I’m wearing the Starboy Hoodie, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt 9 gift from American Bazaar. What else would I throw on to run out to get pizza with. I didn’t even bother to comb my hair.  The Morinaga Hair is a FREE group gift from Scars. The Scars group is FREE to join.

Whole or by the slice…

And last but not least, my food of choice is a FREE gift from Lorien at the Redeux Event. The Pizza Box has enough pizza to feed all your friends as it gives a slice to anyone who touches it. You’ll be the hit of any party with the never-ending pizza slice.

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

Fallin’ For TP7 and zOOm

TP7
Oh Hello Fab Free! I am totally fallin’ for the FREE gifts at the current round of The Project Se7en paired with this group gift dress from zOOm! All puns aside, there are some fabulous freebies to be had in celebration of TP7′s anniversary. If you happen to follow me on Flickr you’ve probably seen these photos up for a few days now. I apologize that it took me so long to get this post done, it’s a big one!

zOOm it to Me

This bright floral dress is a FREE group gift from zOOm. The zOOm designs group is just 99 linden to join and there is more than one group gift currently available. Perfect for spring and even a casual Easter gathering, the floral print dress has a texture change hud that lets you choose between 8 variations of this beautifully busy floral print. The gift also includes the following body-specific sizes.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Belleza Isis/Freya/Venus
  • Slink Hourglass/Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

TP7 Close

Gifts at The Project Se7en

Since there are so many FREE gifts at this anniversary round of TP7 (and I’m only showing a few) I’ll do my best to talk about them starting from top to bottom, or in this case head to toe! First, you will need to join The Project Se7en group and wear the tag to get the gifts. As you travel around the event you’ll see the celebratory cakes at most booths. Just click the cake at each booth and your gift will be automatically sent to you. First, I love this hairstyle from Sintiklia. It’s a fitted bento hairstyle that comes in the brown-pink color Pru is wearing, and a black-white version (not shown). Each color also comes in 2 sizes.

Next up, what’s not to like about these adorable glasses. Love even commented on my Flickr photo about how cute they are! These glasses are the FREE TP7 gift from BADa. If needed they can be sized up or down with a touch menu.

The dainty nose ring Pru has in is also a FREE gift at TP7. This one is from Tableau Vivant. The Tableau Vivant gift is a set of nose rings in gold and silver. There is a left side ring and a right side ring in both metal tones.

The slight gradient to Pru’s lip color is due to the FREE TP7 gift from Wednesday. I like that it is partially transparent. This single color applier works with Catwa heads only.

For the next and final gift in this post, you’ll need to take a closer look at Pru’s feet in the top photo. I love these sandals! The “Carved Camellia Clogs” are the FREE TP7 gift from Konpeitou. Just in case you are confused, like I was at first, you’ll need to wear the shoe layer that matches the height/position of your foot. These cute shoes come with a color change hud as well so you can match the straps to your outfit, and change the carved part from plain to colored.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Sintiklia – Hair Caramella – FREE TP7 Group Gift @The Project Se7en

Skin – Essences – Iris (Lelutka Bento/Omega Appliers) – Exclusively @The Black Fair Until April 19th

Photobombed!

Photobomb!

Hello, fabulous readers – I hope you are having a wonderful week!

I set up this photo to show you the adorable Easter hunt gift from Sway’s, but silly Finn jumped out and photobombed the bunnies right as I took the photo. That crazy canine never met a camera she didn’t like, LOL! 😄

Hunting for Easter Eggs

The SwayLand Easter Egg Hunt is going on now through April 23rd. If you’ve enjoyed the advent hunts over at SwayLand, you’re going to love this one!

Here’s how to play:

  • Hop on over to SwayLand and touch the sign by the big Easter egg near the landing point.
  • You will receive a folder containing a HUD and information notecard.
  • Wear the HUD and start hunting for Easter eggs (there are TEN). The eggs are hidden all over the region.
  • When you find an egg, touch it, and it will appear on your HUD. If it doesn’t, you are too far away, so go closer and try again.
  • Once you’ve found all 10 eggs, and the white eggs on your HUD are colorful, touch the big Easter egg where you got the HUD to get your exclusive SwayLand Easter gift.

Mr. & Mrs. Bunny Egg are 100% original mesh and come in 4 colors: red, green, blue, and natural (pictured). Touch the egg for a color-change menu.

The SwayLand Easter Egg Hunt is completely free. No group is required.

Good luck, and have fun!! 🙂

Uber Girly

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulouses!  Boy am I feeling fine and flirty today, in my new floral romper, just laying under the sun enjoying the birds sing to me.  This one piece item had a bit of a vintage look to it in my opinion, so I tossed on my pink Platform Maryjanes by Livalle and braided my hair for an uber girly ensemble.

The Light In The Dark

This sweet summery find is ironically available at The Dark Side 2 Fashion Fair on the floor of the MOoH! shop, priced at just 10L!  It may be located on the dark side… but it’s definitely of light!  The Tina Romper comes in tons of fits for your body and also includes a texture change HUD for an extra colour option in pink floral too.  I am including the vendor ad below so you can see both texture options 🙂

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL + alpha layer

  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • TMP

We Are Family

We Are Family

fam(ə)lē

A family is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. And the family I have here at FabFree is united together to bring you the best in free and inexpensive items for all of you on a budget (or if you just like good deals)! We often pass information to each other about the things we’ve seen that my be more someone else’s style than our own… (you won’t ever see me in a skirt and heels). 😃 My fellow bloggers and a few of my friends that point me in the way of sweet deals are my SL family. A guy couldn’t be more lucky!

I’ve been framed!

I’ve taken the time to frame my family (now I sound like a mobster) and honor them as they should be. I found while hunting on the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 the Hall of Fame Family Photo Frame at unmisTakAble Weddings. The gifts on this hunt are just $1L each. Hopefully you have a family as big as mine to frame as well.

Being picked on for sport…

And with any family, there is always teasing back and forth. I usually come out on the short end of the stick.😣 My sporty casual look for a Sunday can both be found at the Wash Cart Sale. At the K&A Design cart, I found both the Sports Tee Shirt and Sport Pants both for just $10L each.

And now it is time for me to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. I worked way too hard doing yard work yesterday…

The Cubicle

Cubicle

 Workin’ for a livin’…

As we hit the downside of the week, my thoughts turn not to the tasks at hand, but to the weekend. To relax and be with friends and family and to do what I want, when I want, WHERE I want and NOT be stuck in this cubicle. My RL cubicle is larger than this one, but it is still windowless and dreary. This boy needs a little bit of sunshine about now…

I don’t want to work…

My office attire is this month’s group gift from Resun. The Ramon Outfit is a black shirt and tie with tan slacks. The Resun group has a joining fee of $100L, but I was lucky enough to join when there was a limited time open, no fee to join. (New Resident Tip: Join groups that usually charge a fee to join when they have free enrollment  for totally awesome gifts.)  I found the $10L Scott Randolph Boots (that Astrid originally showed [HERE]) on the Roped Passion’s cart at The Wash Cart Sale still going on.

… I want to bang on these drums all day

And I have two more hunt gifts from the Men’s Only Hunt 9. I found the Hipsta Watch at PBM Enterprises and my pose came out of the pose gift pack I found at Grafica.

This weekend, I’m thinking some surf and sand is just what the doctor ordered…
