FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Counting My Blessings

telsiope FF GG, No Match No Tendencies

Happy 1st Friday of 2022! Although the real world is wild, crazy, and insane here in SL we have so many blessings. We usually don’t catch viruses or diseases here (at least I haven’t gotten any). But always remember this – boys have cooties!

Our fabulous, marvelous designers are always showering us with gifts or offering great prices an promos or sales. It’s fun to jump around the grid to discover new goodies. I’ve been doing a bit of this and that, going here and there to find fashion items you may like.

One of the newest FabFree group gifts (Free to join) comes courtesy of Telsiope’s Couture. This lovely delicately textured dress is Victoria. I love the way the gold threads swirl while making lovely patterns on the cloth. You could use this as casual or a semi-dressy wear.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • SLink HG

While I was scoping out goodies I made a trip to The Free Dove to see what was new. I found these tres chic heels from {Le’la}, the Unka Heels (Free gift at The Free Dove/Free group join needed). If you prefer a shiny shoe you will love these. The package includes sizes for Maitreya and Slink as well as an 8 color change hud.

Next I tripped on over to No_Match. There is a new Next Up game with a new to me style – No_Tendencies. Each try at the machine costs $50L. If you haven’t tried one yet it’s like a gacha but you know what you’ll get before you spend the $L. I scored this Black/white version on my 1st try. The included hud has 9 different shades from whites/greys/blacks. I’ll be going there often to catch the red hud!

Off I go again to scour the grid for goodies!

Peace,

Cre

Wintry Sparkles

Pink Cream Pie January GG

Hey Fabbies!

‘Tis just me again with more group gift finds.  I can’t say enough how much I *love* Pink Cream Pie.  She just feeds into my obsessions like pink… and unicorns!  So, how can a girl resist?!

However today I have neither pink, nor unicorns to show you (maybe next time, hm?), but I do have this free adorbs sparkly dress.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there are a load of group gifts up for your perusal.  This just happens to be the newest one.  It comes with a limited HUD (can change color of straps and undies) and it fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

My cute hair is a free gift from No.Match on the Cosmopolitan Christmas tree, which is free but you have to join the Cosmo group, which is also free.  It is still up with loads of gifties as of this post, but I don’t know how long it will be up, so I would hurry on this one if I were you!

I know this is painfully short….  I haven’t had my quota of caffeine for the day yet!  Stay warm gang!!!  Only another 75 days until Spring!

Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

Another Year Over, A New Ones Just Begun…

nearly new years

Hey Faboos!

I can’t believe that another year has gone by.  And covid is still as prevalent as it was when it started.  Ugh.  I hope 2022 will be the year we all say enough already and do whatever has to be done to take our lives back from this virus!

I know things will never be the same as they were pre-covid, but maybe it has brought some positive into our lives too.  Like appreciating day to day things we took for granted, friends, family, hugs, shopping!  Even appreciating just getting up in the morning and feeling *good*.  Perhaps it came to teach us to shift our perspective and be grateful for all the little wonderful things, as simple as waking up to a new day (some people don’t, and one day, you won’t either).

It makes me think of one of my favorite movies Dead Poets Society.  Mr. Keating (Robin Williams) tells his class to seize the day, make your life extraordinary while you can.  The powerful play goes on and YOU get to contribute a verse.  What will your verse be?  Let 2022 be the year we all live in state of gratitude, seizing the day with those we love and contributing our powerful verse.  What legacy do you hope your life will create?

Where was I?

I got a bit sidetracked there.  The turning of a new year always makes my thoughts get deeper than they normally are (and that’s saying something!!!).

I’m getting ready for the new year and I’m doing it in style!  This sexy little number is the latest free group gift from Pink Cream Pie.  It has several colors to choose from and also a sheer option.  The group is 314 to join and there is an entire wall of group gifts for your shopping pleasure.  This one fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn

My hair, which you have seen all over the Fab Free Blog by now, thanks to Aline & Jacx.  Now you get to see it in my signature blonde, this is of course the new free group gift from Truth.  Their VIP group is 350L to join and the hair is in the recent notices.

A New Year Right Around the Corner

I’ve also got some fun New Year’s Deco for you.  My 2022 numbers are the final Advent Day from Simply Shelby.  In fact the final advent day gives you an entire New Year’s Eve Prep Kit that I think is pretty darn nifty!  Even though the advent is past, you can still grab them all for only 10L.  As of this posting they are all still available.

I also headed over to the Okinawa Holiday Event where they are lots of free gifts to grab, with no group needed.  I found this adorable hair flower Free by Ayame and I absolutely love having my own New Year’s Ball which is 75L at Ever Green.  Really it is made that you wear it and you can walk around on it, which is lots of fun, but for the photo I needed to stand still, so.  But I love it for decor, it turns and it changes all sorts of beautiful iridescent-y colors!  Really gorgeous!

Have a Hap-Hap-Happy New Year! (Rudolph’s Shiny New Year Song)

Merry Xmas!

Merry Xmas!

Hey FabFree! I wanted to pop in to wish you all a Merry Christmas or enjoy whatever other holiday you are celebrating tonight! I have a few limited-time offers to share so I’ll jump to the presents!

A Christmas Jumper

My jumper and top are past advent gifts from Paper.Sparrow from days 22 and 23. They are both now on sale for 50 Linden each. This is such a cute outfit and perfect for lounging around the house, sitting by the fire, and opening presents. It was perfect for the relaxing Christmas evening I had at home. For the most part, advent is over but you can still buy the past gifts at Paper.Sparrow for 50L each. This sale will not be on long, so go now while it’s still available!

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Lara

Hair for a Limited Time

Firelight has a great advent calendar this year filled to the brim with cute hairstyles. For a limited time, you can collect all of the past advent gifts for free. That’s 24 free hairstyles! You need to join the free Firelight group to get in on the offer. These are mostly ladies hairstyles, but there are a few goodies thrown in there for the men as well. The beautiful hair I am wearing is one of the free advent gifts. This hairstyle (Rosie) comes in two lovely shades of light reds/gingers. Note that this offer will likely be gone after today. I’m not sure how long these will be available; they could be out longer and they also might not be. The creator also set out a sign saying that there will be a gift card available on December 31st-January 1st, so you may want to stay in the group to collect that giftcard!

A Little 25L Christmas Gift

Finally, the little Christmas decoration seen behind me is a wooden engraving of Santa Claus and Mrs. Clause that hangs on the wall. You can get this for 25 Linden in EED’s booth at Winter Wonderland at Malus Park. Winter Wonderland is open until December 31st, so you still have time to collect the gifts.

Have a good one!

xx

Ho, Ho, Ho, I’m Playing in the Snow

LP Santa Lingerie #4 new

You might say I’m a bit crazy making snow angels in lingerie. Around the grid I’m known as CreCre which always translates to CrayCray in voice or text. So this is “normal” for me. Face it, you have to be at least a bit touched to be in Second Life.

Did you know that Santa makes his elves and reindeer perform calisthenics in the snow?? It toughens everyone up for that long Christmas Eve ride. No one can give up or poop out (not reindeer poop, for Rudolph’s sake!)

Another Free Hunt?!

The current round of Orsy officially ended on 12/21 but everything, including the free hunt gifts are still out so fly over and grab them. I can’t guarantee they will be there much longer.

The 10 La Perla Hunt gifts are free with the Orsy event group tag (free to join). You’re looking for a Santa sitting on a cupcake while holding a Merry Christmas flag. Today I am sporting the Santa Lingerie # 4. It’s a festive set without being too revealing.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Here’s a pic of all the free hunt items:

Have fun hunting (psst, it’s an easy one)! I need to load pressies on that sleigh!

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

Queen of the World

Tiffany Mia Gown (Free)

I am the queen of the penguins, the queen of the ice and snow, etc. Hell, I am the QUEEN of the WORLD! Yeah that’s the ticket!

As I hang out with the penguins in the southernmost of the world I rule I perform my greeting maneuver to welcome my subjects. My subjects are wonderful, especially those who supply Queen Creola with lovely gifts. And the best thing about being a self-proclaimed queen is that I get all this stuff for free.

My stunning gown is courtesy of Tiffany Designs. I have been a fan of the creator for many of my SL years. Lucy Hope, owner & designer at Tiffany Designs makes exquisite gowns. Once again she has a free gift for everyone – the Mia Christmas Gown! There are 2 versions of the gown – red and red with green accent pieces. Aside from the gown you also get a glamorous pair of earrings, a head bow and a pair of high heeled pumps (in the vendor on the right lower side of the gown vendor). All you have to do is left click on the vendors to grab this gift.

TD Mia Christmas Gown {Mesh}

Being Queenly

Every queen must have a crown; really it’s in the rule book! My stunning Selene halo is a free gift from Six Feet Under at the Frozen Frolic. It’s perfectly fitting as a crown so I may continue to reign over my kingdoms. You’ll find shopping and free gifts there.

The free hairstyle sitting regally on my head is courtesy of Doux. The Snowflake hair comes with an extensive deluxe color change hud. It’s my royal hair of the day. All of my social media followers will all rush out to get it.

Now I must be off to do queenly “stuff”. You know, get presented with chickens and kiss babies type stuff.
