FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!


I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! 😛

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. 🙂

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the free group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. 😀

The Barber Shop

Barber Shop

A new Sweater.

Byrne has out this great new FREE sweater as their group gift (the group is FREE to join) and you can pick it up before heading off for more winter travels. The gift package includes all the standard sizes, a good quality alpha, and the men’s sweater in black or gold. It’s quite stylish. And style was what was what seemed appropriate as I traveled to “The Village” for my afternoon jaunt.

It was snowing.

It was snowing so I ducked into a little barber shop. It got me remembering that first haircut we all invariably get as children — you know the one… where you cry and your mother takes a picture of the entire traumatic event? It seems, though, that haircuts or at least hairstyles seem to be milestones for changes in our lives.

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel.

The importance of a haircut.

I ran across this quote on google while exploring this little barbershop and it made me reflect a moment, because I have to think that the quote (if Coco Chanel did indeed say it) doesn’t only apply to women. A lot of men get life changing haircuts as well.

Many important milestones come with trips to the salon or at least personal stylings —  such as dances or weddings… and I’m sure the fellas (not just the ladies) get shimmied up with a fresh haircut too. In some cultures the cutting of hair is deeply spiritual, so I took this picture of myself at this quaint little Barber Shop in my brand new Freebies (and I’ve got one more to tell you about) and thought about the changes that are in store for Astrid and I as the new year approaches. We will certainly have some stories to tell you.

The Beaded Bracelet

Did you catch the fancy new bracelet I was sporting? That’s courtesy of Cold Ash, and is their November L’Homme Magazine reader’s gift. The L’Homme Magazine group is Free to join and you can pick up many free gifts from many stores across the grid, including this free bracelet which comes in a left or right version as well as a standard or TMP version. It is black with a couple of brown beads on it to make it extra versatile. And it’s a nice touch to a classic outfit. Every gentleman needs a little extra now and then.

I won’t be getting my hair cut today. But I enjoyed my wander around this shop. There are changes in store for Astrid and I in real life. All good stuff. And we’re excited about sharing our adventures here… and there… with all of you.

Something a little Different

Soon to be on FabFree

Some days you just don’t feel like getting all glammed up.  All that picking and matching, and trying to find that one folder in your inventory.  What was it called anyhow?  Luckily places like Grendel’s Children have our backs with a wide array of goofy, and well made full av freebies.  Like this guy!  This adorable hippo av comes complete with an ao that lets you wriggle his ears, sit, yawn, as well as a few other animations.


Soon to be on FabFree

The Boxbot was another favorite find of mine (out of dozens and dozens of awesome avs, seriously, go now).  This cute little cardboard box man also has an additional set of heads and a customization kits next to his vendor, all free as well.


Soon to be on FabFree

Boxbots and Hippos not your style?  Abranimations also has a few very cute cheap and free AVs.  The mesh Rag Doll Cat is right near the landing point.  You will also find some cute avs in the discount section (as well as free and cheap AOs and dance huds!)  I also picked up a little bat AV and Break Dancing hud while I was there, and I can tell you this cat was made to break dance!

Have a beautiful week!

Saturday Skating

B&CCo. Black Cable Knit Sweater  GG INDI Baker Rusty Jeans BAIT Ardent-Minty Scarf GG Graffitiwear HOliday Mittens FF Tour (2)

It finally happened. It snowed today. So, I transformed my sim into a winter wonderland. I thought I’d try my hand at ice skating. I put on the Black Cable Knit Sweater, which is the group gift at BC & Co. The Rusty Jeans are the dollarbie at INDI Designs this week. I needed to accessorize to take the chill off. I found the Ardent-Minty Scarf, which is the group gift at [BAIT]. My Holiday Mittens are part of the FabFree Shopping Tour at Graffitiwear. My Ice Skates are located in the freebie section at Abranimations. A skating HUD is included to make you look graceful on the ice.


I talked Corrigan (yes, she does have a name) into helping me out with the newest pose release from WetCat. The Traces of Autumn pose works just as well in a winter setting. It is just $10L for a short time, so don’t delay.

And before I get IM’s and notecards about what Corri is wearing, I’ll tell you. 🙂 Her dress is the December group gift from Styles by Danielle, and I found the Christmas Cloak for her under the tree at Avatar Bizarre.

Happy skating. 🙂

Fun with Abranimations!!!

Have you started doing the advent calendars around SL?  Each day a new gift is given and only available for 24 hours.  I remember how much fun the gifts from Abranimations were last year so I had to show you the first two gifts given.  The Stunt Skateboard was the 1st advent gift and is no longer available for free.  It was so much fun skating around and doing tricks on this board!  The gift for December 2nd is the Battle Tank game.  Ride in this army tank and battle it out with friends who have their own tanks.  My boyfriend and I love an excuse to shoot each other and inflict pain, so this was a keeper!  Be sure to check back every day to grab the new gifts and bring your friends!

We have a running list of Advent Calendar gifts:


Don’t miss out on any of these amazing gifts!
