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!

Tis The Season

Tis the Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “I love nutcrackers, reindeer and snowmen.”

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!

Looming Moon

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulous readers!  I have put together another super affordable and mostly free outfit today that I hope you like…  At least like enough to go and pick up some of the pieces that suit your personal style.  I’m going to start with news about the hair, because free hair always seems to be a big hit here at FabFree lol.

You can find the Keene hairstyle that I am wearing today as a free midnight mania board prize at Moon.  This style comes in their essentials pack so it includes a ton of shades from different colour packs, making it a good find no matter what your box number is.  This is the non-group board, so you don’t even need to be in the group to participate – just show up early enough in the day to get in on it before it locks down!

The Jana Skinny Jeans are a new free gift at LOOM that you can pick up after you activate your free inworld group tag.  Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Fitmesh, and standard mesh sizing are included.

My Ginny Sweater (3L) and Salome Flats (1L) are available as wearable dollarbie demos in the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store.  There is no mention of demo on these items, they are just in the orange*pekoe colours as shown :).

ps. TIP:  I wore the Maitreya version of the Jana Skinny Jeans with the standard mesh size Ginny Sweater, but unfortunately the jeans went through the sweater in a bad way.  I solved this problem by adjusting my shape butt size and saddle bag sliders down until the jeans no longer poked through the sweater.  Make sure you save as…  (something else), not just save or you will have altered your orginal shape.  I use this trick a lot, and I thought someone else might appreciate the idea!

What Were You Doing in 2002?

Snapshot_007I’m back with another dollarbie from the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store!  This time I am wearing the Brighton Bay 2002 Set that includes the mesh shorts, waist sweater and the layered top that can be worn with or without sleeves.  This set is available as a wearable demo (it doesn’t say demo anywhere!), priced at just 3L for the whole  thing.  Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings – there are tons of steals!

ps.  What were you doing in the summer of 2002?  I am pretty sure the highlight of that summer for me was a trip to the beach.

Where To?

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses!  Would you believe I put this outfit together for just 5 little lindens?

I was inspired to put together my travel outfit when I first noticed the Nerdy Duffle with Jumper (available here) in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store for just 3L.  This jacket also includes the shirt and sweater with the jacket for a complete look.  I then added the matching House Slippers and Uniform Skirt that I also found in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store, priced at 1L each!  Voila – 5L 🙂

Now.. where I am going to go in  my travel outfit – who knows?  I can’t follow a map to save my life.

Holy Crow

Snapshot_005

Good evening everyone 😉 Tonight I came across a really cool Wizarding Robe in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store that I wanted to share news about.  I know a lot of SL residents are into roleplay, and I can see this 3L dollarbie being a lot of fun to dress up in.  This item is called a wearable demo, however it is not marked with “demo”, it’s just in the colour of orange  😉

My “Holy Crow” and “The Cage” can be found at the May’s Soul gacha machine display at The Secret Affair, priced at 60L per play.  There are all kinds of crow themed prizes to collect, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween season!
