Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Here are the details:

Stay Safe!

Stay Safe

I won’t bore you with my regular ramblings about the lack of warmth in RL, or the fact that I’m still trudging through slush on the daily.  Instead, I’ll just talk about the importance of water safety!  Make sure you’ve got a cute lifeguard keeping an eye on  you at all times, because ain’t nobody got time for no drowning!  What?  It’s true!

Upcycling is so Hot Right Now

You may have heard of the shop Upcycled before if you’re a freebie hunter like we are here on Fab Free!  They have a little inworld shop now where every item is completely free, from clothes all the way down to flowers, furniture and food.  I grabbed my cute little applier bikini and jean shorts there, as well as the lifeguard chair I’m sitting on!  You’ll find lots of great items to decorate with, so give it a little peek!  My clothes come with an Omega applier for easy wearing purposes!

More Bonbons!

Have you seen that Bonbon has a new group gift out for Fabulously Free in SL group members?  My little side ponytail is just so adorable and warm-weather ready that I can barely stand it.  It comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty hair colours, and you can also change the colour of the scrunchie.  To grab your own, just join the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group, which is always FREE to join, making this cute hairstyle completely free!  Yaaaas!

Stay safe out there!

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

The Bench – This adorably rustic heart bench is a free group gift at Reka. The Reka group is free to join. It has a few female sit poses, a few male sit poses, and several cuddles. I love the over all look of this sweet free gift, especially the way the bench curves toward the center. This freebie is waiting at the Reka landing point. There’s also a group joiner since you’ll need to be wearing the Reka group tag.

Fancy Predator


Canimal Predator Dress

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been awesome so far. I’m being mostly held hostage by Real Life, but that’s okay. At least I get to share some fabulous freebies and cheapies with you! For this post I want to tell you about two of the handful of group gifts at Canimal. I also want to tell you about the Fifty Linden Friday item at Fancy Décor.  I know what you’re thinking, it’s Saturday! Not to worry though, the Fancy Décor FLF item will be available through Sunday.

First up, this killer dress by Canimal. I say killer because, look at it with the awesome crocodile skin-like texture and the flair of the skirt. Not to mention it happens to be named the “Predator” dress. It’s not often that a dress makes me feel cute, and feisty! This group gift is free to all Canimal group members, and the Canimal group is free to join. Also, if black isn’t your color, the dress has a color change hud with several options. As for the size, I believe it is a Maitreya Lara fit only. It comes in a single unmarked mesh size.

Canimal Lingerie
Next up, a second group gift from Canimal. As I mentioned before, there are multiple group gifts at Canimal, and this sexy black lace bodysuit is one of them. I like that it’s both simple and beautiful without a lot of extra straps or frills. I believe this gift is for Maitreya body wearers only as it comes in a single mesh size. It is also free to Canimal group members. Also, I want to mention that along with the group gifts at Canimal, there are several Lucky Letter boards. You’ll find the group gifts and LL boards on the second floor of the Canimal store.

Finally, I mentioned a Fifty Linden Friday item from Fancy Décor. The PG version of the beautiful bed with white bedding and canopy posts shown in both of the above photos is the FLF item at Fancy Décor. This bed comes in either black or gold, both with white bedding. Only the PG version is 50 lindens through this Sunday. I’ve added a vendor photo below so you can get a better look.

In the Quiet of the Afternoon


In the Quiet of the Afternoon
Hello Fab Free’rs! Happy weekend! I’m so glad you’re here. For this post I have the most booty-licious sweater dress ever and the cutest chair and table set to share with you. Keep reading for all the details.

The Dress – The pretty sweater dress Pru has on is one of several free group gifts available at Ellnique. The Ellnique group is free to join. I love the long sleeves and high neck of this dress, it also happens to be very shapely. I don’t mind telling you I changed Pru’s shape a little for this dress, her curves came out a little too dangerous when she first put it on. This dress definitely has a corseted look to it. This and the other group gifts can be found upstairs.
Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Furniture – I’m not sure what took me this long to pick up the latest group gift at Kraftwork, it’s cute as can be! This “Gipsy” set includes the chair, table, and lantern shown. Each of the 3 items is copy so you can rez out multiple. I love the bright colors and playful floral patterns. This set is one of quite a few group gifts, all of which are furniture, landscaping, or other home related items. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join, and the beautiful gifts are well worth the effort.

Here are the details!

Mermaid Monday


Mermaid Monday

Hi There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! In a perfect world the above photo shows exactly how I’d want to spend the day. I’d love to be lounging on a fluffy sofa with some pretty candles lit eating tarts from a fancy tray. Alas, it is simply not meant to be, not for real life anyway. Thank goodness for Second Life where I can at least pretend. lol Even better I can get the fluffy sofa, the pretty candles, and the plate of tarts all for free at Merak. Additionally, I can live out a little bit of my mermaid daydreams wearing these leggings from RoRo. Keep reading for more information about the free group gifts at Merak and the store closing sale at RoRo.

Merak – I need to be sure to thank Love for pointing out these awesome group gifts at Merak. Right now you can pick up several free gifts while wearing your Merak group tag including the candles, sofa, and tray of tarts shown. The candles come in 3 versions, and the sofa has single and couples poses along with some texture options for the large center pillow. The Merak group is free to join as well, making these gifts irresistible and well worth the effort. There are some additional gifts available that are not shown in my photo, so I’ve added a photo below of the group gift area at Merak.

RoRo – The news is sad but true, RoRo is closing. The store will shut its doors tomorrow, January 15th. If there’s anything you’d like from the store, now is the time. Most items are marked down to just 25 lindens. I picked up these super cute leggings for 25 lindens. They are an Omega applier only item with several color variations. At RoRo you’ll also find many past gifts out marked from 1 linden to 10 lindens each. Also, there is an assortment of gachas from different stores all marked 25 lindens each. You’ll definitely want to stop by RoRo and check things out. The below photo shows some of what you can expect to find. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Get Fancy


Get Fancy

Hellooo Fab Free! It’s Monday, but I’m not going to let that phase me, and you shouldn’t either. I’ve got a little something different today as I’m sure you’ve already noticed by the above photo. What is all this? I know it looks a bit like a fancy yard sale, however each of the furniture and décor pieces shown in the photo is a free group gift at Fancy Décor. Every lamp, box, chair, and bauble is free to all Fancy Décor group members. There is a one time join fee for the Fancy Décor group of 250 lindens. Fancy Decor group members also get 10% off their store purchases when wearing the group tag. In my opinion the join fee is completely worth it, just look at all this pretty stuff! The textures are really beautiful, I’m genuinely impressed with these gifts. The chair, and the sofa both have single and couples poses. I have yet to test the stools, however I’d imagine they have single poses as well. Also, most, if not all of the items are copy and mod, so you can rez out multiple and modify them if you’re so inclined. For a complete list of each item, and the land impact prims check out the details below.
