Hiking Buddies

In the Mountains

Hey FabFree! Do you like my alpaca? I just love him. We are hiking in the mountains together and got a great photo of our exciting afternoon! I ❤ him. 

Pets Galore

So first off today I am going to talk about all the great animals and pets shown in my post today! First, for free, is this awesome little chameleon! Isn’t he cute? You can get him as a free gift from SEmotion & Libellune at Mancave! The event is open until July 11th and they are celebrating their 4th anniversary! And yes- that means LOTS of gifts for the guys- over 100 actually! There are even some unisex gifts and decor thrown in at this event. Just join the event’s free group and click on the beer cans at each booth! I don’t have a male avatar to show you some of the men’s prizes, but this chameleon is one of the many free gifts there. Make sure you head to Mancave before this great event ends. 

I will mention my next find as a side-note- because it’s technically not under 75L. My alpaca friend comes from a gacha at the SEmotion & Libellune booth at Mancave. These adorable alpacas only cost 86L a pull. I apologize for mentioning something a bit over our price limit, but my little friend was too cute not to share. For 86L, you get an amazing little friend to ride around the grid and you only need to pull once to get this buddy in one colour.  

Green Gear

The next item on my list is to share this adorable green outfit, which is from Freda on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. Freda has 5 prizes out including the top, shorts, ripped stockings, sneaks, and a grizzly bear backpack! The sizes for each item are listed below, and the backpack is resizable! This look is perfect for all your outdoor adventuring. Each prize is 5L so look around for that little rainbow fairy and each of these can be yours for only 5 L each! The hint to find these items is, “round and round the work table…”

Sizes Included (Top & Shorts)

  • Rebirth Eden
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Maitreya Lara

More credits @ SL18B! 

The last days to visit SL18B are upon us (it ends on July 6th for good!), and I wanted to share that EscalateD has 350L in free credits in their booth at SL18B. They even have many of their styles on sale for 40% off at the event, which you can purchase with your free credits. I am currently wearing Kinzey, one of their many lovely hairstyles you can buy with the store credit gift. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Shopping Makes Me Hungry!

Gothicatz SLB18 Gift

Whew! I did a couple of sims at SLB18 Shop & Hop and I got hungry for something sweet and crunchy. Luckily I found an apple orchard where I could rest my weary tootsies and nom on my au naturelle snack! I also had a “pick-me-up” cuppa java.

Oh Nooo! She’s Wearing Colors Again!

I admit it! I LOVE bold & bright colors. Reds & pinks are my thing. So when I went into unpacking mode I was so excited to find this darling outfit, Tiffany, from Gothicatz as a Free gift. included are a polka dot top & shorts with clown faces (shades of IT?).

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Iris
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tone Fine

The Price is Right

This cool laid back summer “do” is yet another Free gift from SLB18 Shop & Hop. Druida, a style from Vanity Hair. It comes with a variety of huds with many colors and variations. The package even contains tintable, Catwa, & Omega hairbases.

Got to run, I need to pick apple bits out of my teeth.

SLB18 & Shop & Hop ends on July 6, so hurry!

Till the next time pretty people!

Holo Angel

Holo Angel

Heyya FabFree! Another week is starting up and that means the time when some of our biggest events will be packing up and disappear for another year. Like the Second Life Birthday bash going on till July 6th. It only leaves us a week to do all that shopping and gift getting! So let’s get it going!

Today I found my entire outfit for free at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.  Wings and hair too!  First, my hologram dress is from Salt & Pepper. This is the “Pricilla Dress” and not only do you get the sleek hologram but you in fact … get a whole fatpack! That’s twenty eight solids, patterns and hologram colors! Plus seven metals for the chain. 

My sleek hair style is also a gift from Mina. The unnamed hair is a soft pastel blend of colors that I thought complemented my holo look very well. 

And lastly, my gorgeous wings are from Riot. The “Cupid’s wings SLB18” come in two sizes ( I’m wearing the larger “men’s” size) and two levels of materials. They are rigged some you can’t move them at all. They do slowly wave in and out much like butterfly wings.

All of these gifts are at the respective designers booths at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.

Dress – Salt & Pepper in the Jubilant SIM

Hair – Mina – in the Gilded SIM

Wings – Riot – in the Jubilant SIM

Hey gang!

I’ve been visiting the Hair Fair (I think I might possibly kinda sorta have an obsession for hair!), and like the other girls, I too found some awesome super duper faboo freebies for y’all!

Now, since I can model only one hair at a time, I have only included one in the post but fear not!  I found other freebies for you as well, which will undoubtedly show up in other posts.  😉  (natch!)

Lets dive in, shall we?  First off the cute cute hair, this is a free gift (no group required) from Love at the Hair Fair.

The adorbs outfit, this is a new free group gift from Reed (group is free to join and she has a wall of gifties!), it fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I wish they had hair fairs more often, I kind of have an obsession with hair.  I wish I could change it up in real life as quickly as I do in second life.  That and teleporting.  yes please!  😀

The backdrop is from Tropix, it is a free gift at SL18B which ends very soon so hurry over!  No group required here either.  Just run around and grab goodies!

When Life Gives You Lemons…

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Hey FabFree! It’s been a minute, but I’m back now, taking in all the sun and enjoying the summer weather. I am embracing that saying fully here with “when life gives you lemons make lemonade”. Basically, lets spread the positivity and good warm summer vibes no matter what we are hit with! I am going to share some summer fun goodies today so let’s dig in! 

The Summer Carnival

The Summer Carnival event is a big hit this year. The Summer Carnival is filled with cotton candy and popcorn machines, awesome summer items and fun carnival games to play! They also have a couple freebies out, so there should be something for everyone. Some of the free items I am showing from the event today are:

  • A free wall tapestry from Ari-Pari that says “Hello Summer”! It’s great, and so bright. 
  • Louchara has this lovely garden shelf out for free at the event too. 

No group is required for these gifts, so just swing by Summer Carnival to grab them before the event ends on July 16th. 

Some Cute Sandals

Another freebie I have to show today are these adorable sandals by Hopes Creations. These are a free gift at SL18B. Go over to Hopes Creations booth to get them and they are yours, and they come in several patterns.

When Life Gives You Lemons... II

55 Hairs!

The last announcement I want to make is about more gift hairs from Fabia. This hair designer has been so generous to us lately, and they are throwing more at us. They have no less than 55 hair fatpacks for free at their store right now for group members only. The Fabia group costs 200L to join. What a steal! These gifts will all be gone on July 1st, so scoop them up quickly before they are retired for good.

Enjoy the summer weather, FabFree!

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!

We Made it Through

We Made it Through

The weekend has arrived! I am totally not a drinker, but this week may have pushed me a bit more towards the adult beverages section than usual.  I’ll raise a glass of virtual pink mocktail goodness in everyone’s general direction for making through whatever this week threw at us.  Off with the workwear, on with the weekend crazies, I say!

A Bit of Pride

The grid sure is awash with Pride celebrations this year, and yet another one has started up in the last little bit – the Pride Festival.  There are all sorts of fun things going on, but since I’m such a sucker for freebies, that’s what I honed in of (of course).  There’s a pretty long list of free and discounted items you can grab as part of the festivities.  I got two cute items that I was just dying to show off:

  • FREE hair by KMH at The Warehouse Sale (you’ll find a few other gifts in some of the stalls at this event as well)
  • FREE swimwear by HolliPocket sized for Kupra, Legacy & Maitreya

You can pick up these items for free, no group join required!

Have a great one, FabFree!

Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

I love the 80’s.  I’m sure I’ve rambled about it before, but there’s something about that decade that really makes me happy.  It could be the madness of the fashion, it could be that amaaaazing music, the music videos peppered with vacant expressions…. or the fact that it was just a little simpler because the internet wasn’t really a thing yet.  I guess that’s a bit weird coming from someone who inhabits a virtual world, but once in a while I long for a bit of time where nobody can get a hold of me.  To be fair, the positives outweigh the negatives for the most part.  I’ll tell you what I do really long for…. massive shoulder pads.

Power Stance

Ok maybe not, but it WAS a total power move to have big shoulders, and pencil thin pant legs, right?  Just roll with me here, I promise I have a point… I think.  Whatever the point is, this iteration on an 80’s theme by Quinnty’s is just so stinkin’ cute that I feel like I’m back in my parent’s house dancing with my dad to a 45 of “Dancing With Tears in my Eyes” by Ultravox.  It’s a whole mood.  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then paying the vendor 1L which will be returned to you (or click, then click the word deliver on the menu that pops up!).

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

In the Name of Love

These cute banana-inspired earrings come straight from the wonderful Afterparty.  The neon revolution is in full swing there, and you can take part (and take part in Pride celebrations too!) with these sweet free earrings that you can grab by clicking on the vendor (no group join needed!).  There are loads of awesome gifts at Afterparty, so check those out too while you’re at it.

The Chop!

The cute hairstyle that is also making me feel very “that chick in Ferris Bueller’s Day off who spits the coke in Mr. Rooney’s face” (holy niche reference…) is free from Kokolores!  You can pick up your own over at the Hair Fair, no group join required, and it comes in a full fatpack of fun colours.  Check out the Hair Fair today!
