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

Home Alone

Time Alone

Hi hi hello Fab Free! I sometimes forget about things I have in my inventory. A silver lining to the extra time I have, and so many of us now have, is that I find the things I’d forgotten in my own inventory. Go ahead and laugh, it is comical! I was genuinely excited to find this fun little nail file set by Besom. The files were a past Fifty Linden Friday or some such sale item that I’d purchased and promptly let drown in the abyss of my inventory. Finding them got me wondering if this fun animated item was still available.

I teleported over to Besom and found it right away. The best part? It’s still just 50 linden! Not only that, but there were 3 other previous sale items still available at their sale price waiting just inside the entrance to Besom. Needless to say, the set of fuzzy ears came home with me. Excited about my Besom finds, I remembered Aline telling me that Sass had a new group gift out. My tied top and matching undies are really cute, and not far off from what I prefer to wear when stuck at home alone.

The Besom Nail Files come in a set of 5 or so file boards with a full bento animated hold. The animation even worked with my AO. The set is just 50 linden, no group needed. The ears were just too cute to pass up, there are several ear types including the blue bear ears I am wearing. The full set is also 50 linden also at Besom.

My “quarantine outfit” is the March group gift at Sass. There is a one time join fee of just 10 linden for the Sass group, and there are a few group gifts available. This gift includes the top and panties in the color shown. Long story short, even in Second Life this is how I’m spending my quarantine, safe at home, no pants, delighted by things I’d forgotten I had!

Sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Free and Native Spirit

Native Imaginarium

Who doesn’t like gachas and gifts?! The Imaginarium has started and you’ll find both at this event. I picked up several of the free Imaginairum event group gifts, and played the Petite Mort gacha machine, so I’ve got a lot to share with you. Let’s start with the free stuff!

Imaginairum Group Gifts

All the gifts at the Imaginarium are free. They also require the Imaginarium group, which is free to join. While wearing the group tag, just click the gift box at each participating booth. Most of the boxes are purple. A few of the designers recolored/textured the package.

Why Not?

Many designers put out a free gift, Why Not? put out 2 free gifts for this round of Imaginarium. First, a beautiful piece of wall art with the following written in pretty script: Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with. I’ve heard that saying before, and it always makes me smile. The 2nd gift from Why Not? is a cute primary colored bird house complete with grass and flowers for your yard. Why Not? has 2 booths at the Imaginarium (they are right next to each other). You’ll find 1 free gift at each booth.

Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine 

The Imaginarium gift by Kaya’s is the adorable armoire with the wood cutout tree and blackbird. It comes in the single color version shown. The fun part of this cute freebie is that the cabinet doors, and the drawers all open! Look for this free gift at the booth with the “Vooma Vaccum” gacha.

Inkme

The free Imaginarium gift by Inkme is a cute little stool with a mandala pattern on the cushion. This stool has 4 individual sit poses, and can be copied so you can rez out multiples. The pose menu also has an “adjust” option as well so you can adjust your pose.

RatzCatz

The last of the free Imaginarium gifts for this post comes from RatzCatz. The cute decorative jars with pretty pastel eggs inside are perfect for getting ready for spring and the Easter holiday. Again, don’t forget you’ll need the free Imaginarium group tag.

Petite Mort

I am admittedly partial to Petite Mort’s gachas, it’s true. I just can’t help it when each of these furniture and decor gacha sets are so beautiful. This livingroom gacha set at Imaginarium is called “Native Spirit” and it has an elegantly comfortable southwestern feel. There are 12 total items, including 1 Rare, and an event exclusive which is awarded after 20 pulls. This gacha will cost you just 50 linden per play. The exclusive is a shabby chic table and chairs set. The sofa and armchair both have single sit poses, as do the ottomans, and the metal accent chair. I’ve included the gacha key for this gorgeous set below, and a full list of items in the credits. Have fun Fab Free!

One spoiled gamer

FabFree: One spoiled gamer

Hey there Fabulouses!  Spoiled has a really sweet free gift at Shop & Hop and I have included it in my outfit today along with a 50L hairstyle by Exile.

Hair… I always start with the hair!

At Exile, you’ll find this Glinting Light Hairstyle in a 5pack, priced at 50L for Wanderlust Weekend.  The pack of colours is a good mix, so I’m sure you’ll find something you like in it.  It has a touch of sparkle, which is really fun for this time of year, but not so much that it can’t be worn anytime of the year either.

Festive Gamer

I know Second Life is filled with gamers (even though I don’t consider SL a game!),  and I thought that you might enjoy this cute free gift by Spoiled at Shop & Hop.  You can pick up the Festive Gamer Headset for free, and it comes with a ton of texture options to match it with your outfits.  My favourite part is the heart microphone, but the bow is ultra cute too.

ps.  Yes, still creating hiding spots for myself determined to survive the holiday season!

Gacha Snow Day Right Here

Snow Day

I have to admit it was very hard not to think of the Disney movie Frozen while taking this photo with Love out building a snowman. She kind of is the Elsa to my Anna in a lot of ways. She and I spent a fun afternoon playing in the snow in our cute outfits by Petite Mort. You can see the pretty photo she took during our snow day fun below. The full set (puffer jacket with top, pants, and shoes) is available gacha-style at the Imaginarium event. I’ll include the gacha key down below for a better look at all the cozy pieces to this cute outfit. Also, there is an exclusive version of the shoes at the Imaginarium event awarded after 20 plays Don’t miss out on the chance to score the complete Winter Chill Out set!

Fabulously Free in SL: Snow Day

Last but not at all least, if you like our snowman and want to build one of your own, you can pick up this pose by The Mesh (s)hit on the Marketplace. The pose complete with snowman is just 40 lindens. It also has a snowman with no poses you can rez out in your landscape to add some wonder to your winter land.
