Lavendula Angustifolia

Lavendula Angustifolia

There’s nothing I love more than Lavender.  It’s been an important part of my life for years and years.  I love the way it looks, the way it smells, and all the memories it brings back of trips I took to the South of France.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before here, but I’m the kind of person who has a little sachet of the stuff under my pillow to ensure sweet dreams.  I get to decorate my home in it in SL, and that brings me just a little spark of joy!

Wash it Up!

The Wash Event continues, and really the more you explore the more you find!  I couldn’t resist these gorgeous decor items by Kaerri.  The elegant chairs are the things that dreams are made of for me, and the fact that each decor item cost only 25L is a deal and a half.  I got the chairs, curtains, mirror, and planters there and I couldn’t be happier!  There are a bunch of other items too, including a table and lots of little plants.  I can just imagine the scent!

Clothed in Comfort

While I was at The Wash, I also picked up this sweet outfit by Shae’s.  The top and jeans cost just 25L each, and they are a perfect fit.  I love the way it all looks on – the perfect mix of comfort and sexy.  There are a bunch of different colours to choose from, as well as different jean washes to satisfy all your denim cravings.  You can even pick up the matching shoes to the set for just 50L at their display.

Boho Steals

Boho

Hey Fab Free! How you all doing? Keeping inside has gotten me in a more creative mood and I decided to express myself with a few free gifts, dollarbies and 45 L finds! Together, these create a really cute artsy or boho look. Watch out my friends- this post is a long one but this whole look is made up of deals all under our Fab Free 75L limit!

Ari Pari- Scala Tin/Yang Event

The Dress and Anklet I have on is from Ari-Pari. They have a little sale going on at their store which is connected to the Scala Yin/Yang Event.  I got this dress for only 45L, and the anklet is free (a Yin/Yang gift), which you can wear on both feet. Both items have a colour hud which match each other. These items will be available through the weekend. I love this outfit! There are also a bunch of free gifts and cheap hunts going on at Ari-Pari, so check those out while you visit the store!

This Little Side Bag

I picked up this straw shoulder bag from S@bbia as a free group gift. It’s really well made and it’s super cute! It goes perfect with this boho look.

Anyone Love Gustav Klimt?

One of my favourite artists is Gustav Klimt, a 20th-century modernist. Naturally, I loved this necklace from Luminesse! I grabbed the Gustave pendant at the Wash, which only costs 3L. They have a bunch of other 3-10 L steals in their booth as well as free gifts! The Wash Event is open until April 15th, so you still have time to grab all the cheap deals and gifts!

Mila Free Genus Applier!

I know some of you likely saw this skin offer on Fab Finds recently, but I am currently wearing the free head applier from Neomenia in case you were wondering! It is a head applier called Mila for Genus heads. Simply join their free group to grab this lovely gift. To match the head to your body, you will need to purchase body appliers from Pume C, or grab the body appliers as a group gifts if you are already in their group (PumeC has a 399 L join fee).

The “Shaza” Updo

I know you all love free hair, and this hair I have on is a current group gift from EscalateD. I love the detail of the braids at the back of Shaza. It has a huge colour hud and you can change the hair to natural or unnatural tones, and even split the hair colour down the middle and add highlights. The EscalteD group costs 99L to join. As a VIP member you get a bunch of benefits including group gifts, lucky boards, weekly raffles and a 15% discount from the store. They have a crazy number of gift hairs you can get by being part of their VIP group (plus an advent calendar at Christmas every year).

Witchy Heels

Finally, these “witch queen” heels fatpack are from KC Couture which you can get as a Lucky Board prize. To access their LBs, you will be need to be a member of their group which costs 25L to join.

Coming soon to Fab Free!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Renewal

Renewal

There’s nothing quite as lovely as a field in Spring.  The magic of new beginnings and fresh air are just what the doctor ordered.  I’m soaking all the magic in over at Luane’s World, where you can freely bask in the glory of the renewal that Spring brings.

Bunny Hop

Since Easter is on the way, the Bunny Hop Hunt has got you covered for all sorts of fun.  With all the time we’ve got on our hands, the Bunny Hop Hunt will keep you happy for hours.  I searched high and low on the sim for all the eggs from QE Designs, and I’m happy to say I found them all!  At just 25L each, the goodies contained within sure are a bargain.  Not gonna lie though, this isn’t an easy hunt to do, my eyes were begging for relief after camming around for ages.  But, if you’re up for a challenge and you want to find some really cute stuff, then this is the hunt for you!  I got my top, skirt and boots there and I love the way the outfit looks, no matter how my eyes are feeling after all the searching!

  • eBody (top only)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy (top only)

There are lots and lots of other awesome finds at the Bunny Hop Hunt, but you’ve only got until April 14th to make it happen!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Cremosas Store

Hi Fab Free, with all the recent changes to the Fab Free community, we decided to bring back “Designer Friday” posts. We hope you’ll enjoy them! This week’s post is all about Cremosas Store. Flirty female fashion. That is how I’d describe the clothing at Cremosas Store. At this ladies fashion boutique you’ll find everything from dresses to swimwear, even shoes. I also spotted bento nails. applier clothing, and holiday themed outfits. The store appears to be well organized with sections like “Tops” clearly labeled with large pink signage. Below I’ll give some detailed information about the Cremosas Store group, gifts available, and other freebies and sales happening at Cremosas Store.

Store Groups

Cremosas Store has 2 in-world groups. The free-to-join “Cremosas Fashion” is where you’ll get access to the monthly advent style gift calendar, group gifts, the wall of lucky letter boards, exclusive group discounts, and all the news about new releases, sales, and specials. The “Cremosas Gift VIP” group has a one time join fee of 250 linden, and gives you access to exclusive VIP only gifts.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift 

There is of course a free group gift at Cremosas Store for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free gift at Cremosas is located to the left as you enter the store, right next to the Lucky Letter boards. The Fab Free gift does require you to wear your Fab Free group tag. The current gift is a sleek jumpsuit made to fit Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus).

Space Age Spring Cleaning

Space Age Spring Cleaning

Since I have to be socially distant and all that jazz, there was never a better time than this to start working on my space station.  I’ve been neglecting the Jeffries tubes and power couplings for far too long, and a few cobwebs have even gotten into the hyperdrive.  That just won’t do.  Time to suit up and get this place in working order!

Oh, Look!

Over at the Look Event, you can pick up this awesome space themed outfit for free!  All you have to do is join the Media-SL group for free, and then click on the vendor.  Everything I’m wearing is included, the top, jacket, pants, boots, gloves and even those tools on the belt.  This will make my space-tinkering much easier!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Voluptuous
  • S-L with an Alpha Layer

See you in Space, Fab Free!

Dreams!

Dreams!

Hey Fab Free! I have a really exciting announcement! It is Dreams‘ 4th year anniversary and to celebrate they have a 500 Linden gift card available until March 31st! They also have two MASSIVE wall of group gifts- a variety of items for men and women in terms of clothing and there is also a bunch of eyes, eyelash appliers, shapes and other goodies in the mix! These offers are available to Dreams VIP group members, which costs only 50 Linden to join. You essentially get everything I am wearing plus 58+ more gifts for the low price of 50 L.

Tokio

I feel so spoiled after my shopping spree at Dreams! I absolutely love the boots I bought with my giftcard called Tokio.  These stylish pair include a hud which allows you to change the boots to 30 different plain colours and patterns. I love the animal patterns especially- they are very realistic! I just love boots so these made me happy! After I bought this pair I have a little over 200 Linden left on my card, which would give you enough to buy an outfit accessory or more shoes! I highly recommend it… the value of these boots is SO worth the group join fee! The giftcard is only available until March 31st, so get over their quickly to become a Dreams VIP and grab this 500 Linden gift card present!

Drowning in Group Gifts

I was really impressed by how many group gifts Dreams has for both men and women avatars. I counted 60 group gifts, and there are likely more coming;  this designer is very generous! They also have rolling MM boards and lucky chairs. I am currently wearing the Cali Jean Dress Fatpack and the Glasses Anniversary Fatpack, both which are group gifts from Dreams. They come with colour huds with many options and many of the gifts at Dreams are full fatpacks with huds included which allow you to change the dress and glasses to 8-9 different colours. This is always a huge plus for me- I love being able to customize my look! These items are great and just a small selection of the gifts available at Dreams.

Dreams!

Weekly Dreamy Sales

In addition to the huge number of group gifts, Dreams also does weekly sales. Each week you can buy single items for 45L or 75L, items that are well within the Fab Free limit! Their weekly sales are available Friday- Sunday every week- so check these out! You can also buy full fatpacks at a discounted price during these sales (250 L). The sales are posted in their group notices and you can see them displayed in the weekly sales section of their store.

Support Your Community

Dreams is currently in need of support, and if they aren’t able to make enough sales in the coming months they may need to shut down their in-world store completely due to current economic uncertainty in both worlds. That’s one of the reasons I decided to join the Dreams group- to try to support this store while I still can! If they get more support they will hopefully be able to stay open! Dreams has been so generous in the past four years so I hope the SL community can pull through and give back- even if it is through a small way like joining their low-price group and checking out their (under 75 L) weekly sales.

Thanks for reading and supporting Fab Free!

xx- Caroline

Easy Peasy

Easy Peasy

I am getting pretty good at this staying at home thing, guys.  I even get dressed up now and then and lounge on stools in a very nonchalant way.  Really, I just wanted to show you how cute the back of this dress is!

Oh Mangula!

If you haven’t joined the subscriber list at Mangula for free quite yet, then I must urge you to do so right away!  There are so many great free finds there that joining should be a top priority.  Very recently, they put out this dress and shoes combo which is so versatile you may just faint.  Or you know, something like that.  The dress comes in three different versions, short, long, and as a top in a 20 different colours.  The heels are in the box too and they’re in 20 different colours as well.  Wow!  Hop on over to Mangula and find this amazing fatpack on the gift wall by all the lucky letters!

Make it Your Own

There’s a new group gift at Sintiklia too, and it’s kind of awesome!  You can get creative as these little buns, hairbase, and bangs all come separately so you can put it together in any way you can think of.  You could even colour each part separately if you feel particularly adventurous!  To get it, all you have to do is join the Sintiklia group for 250L and click on the vendor.  There are loads of group gifts, free gifts and lucky boards there to keep you looking chic.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Cyberpunk’d

Cyberpunk'd 1

Ever have that feeling where you’re not sure if you’re awake or dreaming?
-Neo, The Matrix

Hey Fab Free! Stuck at home and need something to do this weekend? The Twisted Cyberpunk hunt will keep you busy and I am showing off more prizes from the hunt. If you are a fan of all things sci-fi, this is the hunt for you!

Twisted

The Twisted hunt has a reputation of being the hardest hunt on the grid, and I would have to agree with that stereotype. Twisted virgin hunters beware! For a list of the locations and side hunts please visited the Twisted Merchant List. The hunt itself is running until Tuesday the 31st so you have all weekend to find the main hunt prizes and conquer those side hunts. The legendary “End Game” (a hunt to do after you reach the last stop) will be open until April 8th! There are 18 prizes to collect at End Game. If you need some help make sure you join the Twisted hunt group, which you can join by copying this join code into your SL chat: secondlife:///app/group/73770da7-7d71-a54e-6e86-60a3e9281e07/about

As always, all of the twisted hunt prizes, side hunts and end game prizes are free (0 L). 

The Goods

I am showing off some of my favourite prizes that I’ve hunted so far. The outfit I am wearing- including the boots, top, skirt, and sleeves- are all prizes in the side hunt at QE Designs. Click the Twisted easels at each location for instructions on how to do the side hunts at each store!

Cyberpunk'd 2

I am also wearing this amazing collar from Neverwish. I just love it and it glows in the dark! This is their main hunt prize, but there are 6 additional collars to collect in total at Neverwish‘s side hunt in a variety of different colours. My hand cuffs also glow in the dark and are animated. These are one of the prizes at the first location of the hunt, Secrets of Gaia

On top of this free group gift skin from Ritual, Lyari, I am wearing the Binary Matrix Tattoo in Turquoise from Fallen Gods, another Twisted prize. It looks like a barcode and if very sci-fi-esque!

Have fun this weekend doing the Cyberpunk Twisted hunt! Make sure you check out these past posts from Juli and Pru who blogged other prizes from the hunt too!

Happy Hunting,

xx
