Feel the Love

Feel the Love

Ok FabFree.  First things first, Happy Valentine’s Day!  I want to go on a flowery, goopy rant about how much I heart my FabFree bloggers.  They work tirelessly (without remuneration!) and are constantly cheerful and exuberant about what we do here on the blog.  I was particularly touched by the extra steps that Bunnie and Arielle took the other day when they put together a hunt at our FabFree Info Hub.  These two girls are so sweet, kind and generous that it always makes me grin.  Thank you both so much for your generosity and hard work, it really is wonderful.

What’s at the Hub?

I’m going to show you the lovely hunt gifts from Shanti today, made by the lovely Arielle.   When you search for the little FabFree heart at our Info Hub (it’s a heart with our pretty rainbow on it) you’ll find three items from Shanti.  The Shabby Valentine Dresser is right up my alley (I love Shabby Chic) and is completely free when you wear your FabFree group tag.  With a bit more searching, you’ll also be able to pick up the lovely valentine leggings and booties to go about your day cozy and comfy for 1L each.  How awesome is that?

Legging Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Fitmesh M

I’ll show you the goodies from Paper.Sparrow next time – but if you get a chance to thank Bunnie and Arielle, please do.  They’re awesome.

You’ve got until February 20th to pick up the prizes at the InfoHub!

Xs and Os

Xs and Os

Hey Hey FabFree! Welcome to the weekend, at last! And you know what you need to do this weekend? Shop and Hop! Cause that free gift bonanza is all over on the 17th. And when you aren’t shoppin’ an’ hoppin’ you might get a little Huntin’ in too.

My Shop and Hop gifts for the post are this super cute sweater and boots set from Envious (in the Aurelian Region) called ‘Kisses Love”. I love the bright flashy red and the thigh high boots are so unique. But get ready for some salty-ness from Juli… the set comes with a cute little short skirt too… a skirt that is so short, I didn’t feel comfortable even wearing it, let alone showing it on the blog. I don’t mind showing some skin… but I have my limits!   Ahem, anyway… this is not a dig at this designer or ANY designer or any one who likes showing off. It’s just not me.  So I tossed on my favorite jeans and still got a terrific outfit for Valentines day!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I am also enjoying this luscious cupcake treat free from Shop and Hop. This is the “Be Mine” cupcake from Boyberry. ( Aurelian Region) It looks so tasty… I must obey the cupcake. I am it’s now. The cupcake has a hold animation but it’s only 2LI if you want to use it as some sweet decor.

Last but not least is my new comfy sitting arrangement on which to eat my tasty treat. This is the “Love letters Ottoman and rug” from Ballade. This adorable set is the 1L prize for the “Love Hunt”. For that one little Linden, you get both the ottoman and the rug which can be used separately. The ottoman has ten poses in it that are well suited for guys or gals. Both pieces together are only a 5LI so you can easily add it to your decor. Oh, and while I was at Ballade… I saw that Poeme is have a sweet Valentines Day Hunt too. It was so nifty… well more about that in my next post! The Love Hunt runs until the 28th so get Hunting!

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

A Snowless Spot

A Snowless Spot

The snow is falling at an alarming rate in my part of the real world, so clearly that calls for a nice warm getaway in the sun in SL.  I have all my favourite things right by me:  A comfy spot to sit, pretty things to look at, a pile of crystals and of course a tower of macarons with a cup of tea to wash it down.  You can create your own perfect nook too!

Happy Anniversary, Raindale!

It is time to celebrate 5 years of Raindale on the grid, as they’re having a quite lovely celebration at their mainstore.  There are two ways to celebrate:  the wonderful pile of birthday gifts (which includes cake, tea, macarons, candles, flowers, and the gorgeous sideboard) – you can get these pretty things for free by joining the free group.  If you’re looking for more of a challenge, then take part in the hunt for all the fantastic furniture and landscaping items you can see in the hunt key below.  Each item costs just 5L, just look for the cupcakes and pay 5L for each!

Raindale 5th Anniversary!

You’d better not delay though, everything goes away on January 31st, and the group join price will increase.

Enjoy!
