Say Yes!

Capsule by Dad - Say Yes! Long Dress $75L Gacha @ Epiphany

Now if only someone would ask that question I could say YES to. Dang, I need a groom! I got this gorgeous wedding dress and no one to marry. No worries gang, this is just a story!

I Had an Epiphany at The Epiphany!

I’m really not a gacha fanatic, I only play them now & then. I decided to check out The Epiphany after I spied this dress in the gallery for this round ending on August 12th. It’s by a new to me designer, Capsule by DaD. At $75 per pull it’s a real bargain and I got the blush colored Say Yes! Long Dress on the first one!! SQUEE! (its my new favorite word, lol).

The dress is sized for Maitreya & Legacy with Perky versions for both.

A few years back on my first blogging adventure I thought about doing a post with all the free wedding attire I could find. Well, life happened and that never got done. Soooo, when I got this dress the light bulb in my head briefly shone brighter & I knew I had to show this.

Enjoy Fabbies!

XOXO,

Cre

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

Hitting the Road in a Gorgeous Bra! (It Could Help me Catch a Ride)

Gulabi [Laysa] Bra

I am ready for a road trip, a plane trip, HELL any trip will do! I am feeling the effects of another lockdown coming on. At least I can travel in Second Life though my only ride today could be a tractor!

A Fabulous Gatcha Find!

One of our FabFree devotees, Rowan Caroll, alerted me to this find at Gulabi. Rowan always knows where to find the good stuff! The store is new to me and on the small side but don’t le that fool you. Attention to little details and meticulous craftmanship set the offerings apart. My exquisite pink Lasya bra is 1 of 3 I got for $75L each by playing the gacha filled with 30 different bras!! Note: You can pick your body when you play.

Sizes include Belleza: Freya, Isis, Venus; SLink: Physique & Hourglass; MaitreyaLasya Bra Gacha Gulabi Main Store, Gulabi (130, 144, 24) - General

More shoes – YIPPEE!

My cute hi-tops are a $3L hunt Ice Cream Cone Hunt item from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They’re perfect for hitting the road and looks so cute with my outfit! The hunt ends on July 31. Hitch a ride over to the store & grab these quick!

Ohhh here goes a pickup truck – got to go!

Well How do You Hang YOUR Chandeliers???

giraffe_002

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!

Cherish Those Nights when the Moon and the Stars aren’t the Brightest Things in the Sky

Amui

I absolutely love fireworks.  That hasn’t always been the case, I was terrified of them as a child.  I remember looking at them and feeling like they were so close they were going to burn me, I was not pleased.  However, once I got past that it has been one long honeymoon for me and fireworks, for as you know, I love all things colorful and sparkly!  Put that up in the night sky and you’ve made me a happy girl!  I don’t like that they scare pets though.  😦  That part makes me sad.

So here in the states, as most of you know, we celebrate Independence Day.  I feel like this year it stands for more than just one kind of independence.  Partly, a coming out of the pandemic (hopefully!) and partly political for some of us.  That makes it a bit extra happy for me this year.

I wanted to find something extra cute to wear to see the fireworks, and I found this adorbs dress at AMUI who has it for free, no group required (the vendor will ask you for 1L and give it right back, some vendors have to do that).  It fits:

  • Altamura
  • BBL
  • Freya
  • Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • V-Tech

It also comes with a HUD so you can choose from 5 festive star spangled patterns for your holiday dress!

Now, my cute little Firework I am holding is from Rabbit House and it is a gacha at SL18B that is only 40L!  They even have wearable fireworks that go off when you walk!  Soooo cute!  SL18B will be there until the 6th so there is still time to hit up this gacha and make yourself festively sparkly!

Happy Independence Day America!

The prize includes 3 earrings, 3, choker necklaces, and 2 hair clips and options to change the colours of the metals and gems via a texture change HUD are included. This set is only 1 Linden on the Fashion Loft Hunt which commences at the end of June.

Summer Hair

I don’t usually go blonde, but it’s perfect for summer! It was time for a little hair dye. This cute hairstyle is another gift on the Peace by Peace hunt. You can find this awesome style at Alli&Ali Designs. The hair includes several natural summery colours and styles and it costs only 1 Linden. To find out more about the Peace by Peace hunt, read my post here, and also check out Arielle’s post here which features another gift on the hunt.

Birthday Bash!

Happy Birthday

Yep, I’m jumping on the FabFree wagon of wishing Second Life a happy birthday! Happy Birthday SL! 18 years is a LONG time in virtual years! Whoopiee!! *hangs birthday banners and throws confetti at all of you*🎉 

As Aline and Arielle already showed us here, here, and here, there are lots of free items at SL18B to celebrate SL’s 18th Birthday. I am still getting through the event bit by bit! I will share some of the awesome gifts, deals, and gift cards I found so far!

Goodies at SL18B!

  • Monomania has a 500L gift card out at the event for their group members at their booth on the Jubilant sim. I had to have the Surrender Yourself set, which includes the coat, top, skirt and boots I am wearing. The colours of each piece in the set can be changed to a number of colours. It is the exclusive for the event and it is purchasable with the gift card, and will leave you with 300L left to spend. To get the gift card, you need to join the Monomania group, which costs only 50 Linden. Monomania also has a free outfit at SL18B. Now is a good time to get into their group, because in addition to all these amazing goodies they are offering at Jubilant, they also have many group gifts at their mainstore.
  • The cute little books and plant are a free gift from Korpokkur House at SL18B. This gift is so cute, and it matches my new painting perfectly! There are so many gifts at the event, so I am just showing you a glimpse of the awesomeness that awaits at SL18B!

Streamers!

I needed to pick up some streamers for the birthday festivities and a gacha by Ari-Pari at the Summer Carnival did just the trick! These banners are great for any parties, indoor or outdoor, to celebrate all the awesome events going on this month! They only cost 25L per pull and they include lights too. So cute!

[Ari-Pari] Lighted Pennant Banner Gacha

Wear Who You Are

Another must-have gift I wanted to share today is the new Pride Hair Color Universal Hud from EscalateD. It is free for all either at the .EscalateD. mainstore or on the Marketplace. I’ve talked about .EscalateD. hairs before, and the way they work is that the hair colour huds can be used on all EscalateD hairs currently for sale- they are universal. This colour hud is filled with pride flag colour combinations so you can pick which sexual orientation you identify with to match your look. I love it- what a great way to show your pride and personality through your hair. Even if you don’t identify with any of these sexual identities, there are still a lot of pretty and colourful hair combinations you can create with this colour hud so it’s just fabulous all around. 

.EscalateD. PRIDE - free Gift

Enjoy the celebrations, FabFree!

This Little Blogger Cried Wee Wee Wee!

Coming soon to Fab Free

Howdyhi!

Back with another fun installment of Market Finds!  I’ve combined this with a gacha find as well, which may also have to become a thing.  😛

This Little Blogger Went to Market

In my recent trip to the marketplace this time, I found this absolutely adorbs dress by NinaLaure.  I love throw back stuff like this and I fell totally in love with it.  It fits maitreya and cost me only 69L!

Also on market I found this cool backdrop (its really four backdrops in one!) called Photobooth Avantgarde by Floyd.  It cost me 25L which breaks down to 6.25L per backdrop!

This Little Blogger Played Gacha!

My cute hair is from a 75L gacha at Dalgona, it wasnt my first choice but I do love pink, so I will accept it.

This Little Blogger is Done.

That’s all for the moment gang, maybe a gacha finds soon?  I’ll see what I can collect up for ya!

Besties Pool Party

Besties Pool Party

I would like to introduce you to one of my best friends ever, Swara. We’ve been great friends in SL for a few years now and she is my #1 shopping and chatting buddie. The other day Swara and I decided to have a besties pool party! What a great way to start the summer season. We also found some cute freebies to share with you all that will kick off the summer just right. 

Goodies @ Miix

The first thing I want to talk about is a great freebie available at the Miix event right now. Furtacor usually blesses us with wonderful gifts at this event every month, and they have done it again. This time, the free group gift designed for women contains holdable watermelon drinks, a Bakes-on-Mesh (BOM) bathing suit, and a purse. Swara and I decided to keep the purses away from the pool so our precious belongings wouldn’t get wreaked. We both decided to sip on those thirst-quenching watermelon coolers while we sunbathed in the pool! Swara is wearing the cute BOM swimsuit included in the package.  

 The Miix event ends on June 20th, so make sure you grab up the free gifts before they’re gone. They even have some free Spongebob Squarepants swimming trunks for men out for free!

WATERMELON -  GIFT MIIX EVENT

 

My Pool Gear!

  • The bikini I picked for our party is from Ari-Pari, and it’s a 1 L hunt prize on the Summer Lovin’ Hunt 5. The hint for the prize is, You’ll find me near a hanging jade… not the gem! The ‘kini comes in 10 colours you can change via a HUD and it is sized for Legacy, Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass. 
  • I am also wearing several makeup dollarbies from Bellucci. My eyeshadow comes from their pride makeup set and the lipstick comes from the pack of Hidden Hills lipsticks. These makeups are appliers that work on Lelutka Evolution heads only, and they cost 1 Linden each.

Bellucci - Hidden Hills Gift [LEL EVO] (Add)

Swara’s Stylin’

I must admit that Swara is rocking it in this look! In addition to rocking that sexy swimsuit, her style includes the following freebies:

  • A couple free group gifts from Spookshow, including the collar and earrings, which are both pride-themed gifts! The Spookshow group is currently free to join. 
  • Her adorable little bracelet is a free gift at Marked. They also have a free pride necklace gift out and several other free group gifts. Most of their gifts are accessories designed for male avatars, but some are unisex.

Those Floaties

I must not forget to mention the adorable pool floaties featured in our pool party! These cute little floaties of narwhals and flamingos come from the pool fun gacha at MOoH!. You can play it at the mainstore and it is adorable. All the items in this gacha are perfect for the summer season and your next pool party! The Pool Fun Gacha at MOoH! costs 50L per pull to play.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Vintage Me!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I’m all about the vintage/retro stuff.  Those of us old enough (cough!) to remember those days know they had a feel.  The 70’s had a feel, the 80’s had a feel.  Somehow once the 90’s started, the era’s started blending together (for me at least), they didn’t have *such* a distinction as the earlier decades (I’m barely old enough to remember the 60’s, but I know that and the 50’s, 40’s, etc also had a feel of their own).

So in my pic, I’ve got a bit of the sixties *and* seventies (can you distinguish?), thanks to the Vintage Fair!  Which is a lot of fun by the way.

The Awesome Shirt

This is screaming 77-79 to me.  Back in the day I had these sorts of shirts with band names on them (The Police for one.)  This is made by The Annex at The Vintage Fair, there are several different designs for you to choose from and they will set you back only 50L.    It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

The Decor

The Stay Wild Moon Child Poster by InkMe is from a gacha that is only 50L at The Vintage Fair.  Not sure the era on that one but as you saw in my previous post, I love all things celestial, so …. gimme!

Woodstock poster behind me, sixties, natch.  1969 to be exact.  You can get that on market from What Next for only 50L

I’m not showcasing the other things but just to give you a rundown of the era….

Pants – very seventies, obv.

The chair to my left (was a gift from Aline!  Thank you!!!!) is very sixties and my favorite color, pink!

Lastly the floppy hat (I bet you aren’t surprised to hear I have one just like this in rl!) is very late sixties, early seventies.
