The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Changing of the Seasons

Changing of the Seasons

Hey FabFree! I can’t believe spring is already over and summer is here… it’s time to move out of these spring clothes and get ready for summer fun! I am soooo pumped for July – you don’t even know how much. The FabFree@15 Event is coming on July 8th, and part of the reason I’ve been posting so much in the last week is to I can prepare to blog our first event! I’m so excited for this summer! So, now I’m back with new post, and this time it’s to show a free hairstyle and some free makeup to keep you going until the event starts. 😉

Back to Hair Fair

It’s time to show more free hair from the Hair Fair! I am wearing the free gift from Ade today. The “Lia” hairstyle includes a style-changing hud, different sizes to accommodate different head sizes, and several colour huds. It’s very cute. 💕You can read more details about the Hair Fair event in my post here.

Lots of New Gifts @ Pout!

The makeup items I am wearing today are all products from Pout! that I recently found out are free.

  • First off, Pout! has some cute new group gifts. I am wearing one of them right now, which is a set of BOM eyeliners in 4 different styles made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX heads. Their group is currently free to join, and there’s a load of past group gifts to pick up as well!
  • Pout! also have some new free gifts on their freebies wall. These require no group join at all. Just buy them for 0L and they are yours. From that lot, I am wearing a new pair of eyeshadows, which are also BOM layers made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX. These come in a bunch of colour options. Both gifts are striking!

Coming Soon

Here’s a fun BOM tip! Make sure that you apply the eyeliners after the eyeshadow. You always want to “layer” your BOM layers on top of each other. You can also re-arrange them by “editing” your outfit and moving them up in the order you want them to appear on your avatar.

Have fun, FabFree!

Memento Mori

Memento Mori

Happy Friday, Fabbies!  I’m heading back to my roots of dark, gothy vibes.  I’ve often ruminated on the fact that I started off my SL as Ms. Dark Cloud, swathing myself in black.  It always makes me giggle a bit, since really – that is the antithesis of who I am.  I’m the one who bursts into giggles at the mere mention of sausage (don’t ask), or tosses glitter about with wild abandon.  Anyway, it just goes to show – you really can be exactly who you feel like being at any given time in Second Life.  And I think that’s pretty great.

Dark Lady

I put this look together with a few awesome freebies I picked up at SL19B.  Now, we’ll be covering the event fairly extensively, as I know that not everyone is going to go to every single booth and pick up every gift and…gasp…unpack them.  So, in the hopes you’ll see something you like, we’ll do a general smattering of lovely free gifts, and give you ideas of just what you can do with them.  So…here’s my look:

  • FREE hair by Ade in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE hat by Psycho Barbie with 13 different textures in the HUD
  • FREE Lipstick by Alaskametro with an Omega Applier and BOM layers

SL19B is running until July 10th, so there’s plenty of time to check it all out.

Who will you be today?

Red to Green

FF SPH 2022 Poeme items

It’s time to break out the green fabbies! St Patty’s Day is just around the corner. And the best news for March is the start of the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt today! You’ll find just about anything you need or want to celebrate. So let’s all pour a pint of green beer and get down to the goodies because everyone can be Irish on March 17th.

If an entire outfit is your thang then look no farther than {Poeme} who has graciously placed 5 hunt items in the store. I must say {Poeme} has knocked it out of the park on this one.

A New Hip Hairstyle

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have a quick little post for today with some news of a great new freebie.

Lalisa

My hairstyle is the latest free group gift at Ade. The style includes a fatpack of colours, a style hud, and a hip hat that says “Lalisa”. I’m not entirely sure what that means; just go with it. It’s cool! This hairstyle will fit female avatars with small and large chest options. Ade has several free group gifts- just head up the stairs to grab them all.

I’ll see you again soon!

Hit the Road

Hit the Road

I jumped into my car and headed for the coast this morning.  A random road trip sometimes does a body good when the walls seem to be a bit closer together than they used to be.  I was supposed to be scrubbing some tiles, but instead the magic of the open road called, so off to the beach I went.  As per usual, who am I to deny the pleading of an inanimate object?

Road Trip!

There’s a new hunt going on at Petite Mort & Oubliette.  The Witchwood sim is always fun to explore, but even more so when you’ve got something to look for.  If you peek through the woods, you’ll find some “Route 66” signs kind of all over the place (even inside the stores) and inside there are all sorts of summery looks that are perfect for hitting the road.  I’m wearing the medium wash jeans that cost just 20L, as well as the feel the freedom tee which is another 20L as well.  I couldn’t help but take a shot (below) of the extremely pretty peach dress too, but can you blame me?  The Road Trip Hunt at Witchwood is running until July 4th, so grab those gifts before they’re gone! (And why not check out the 50% off sale while you’re there!?).

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

More Free Hair!

While I was at the Hair Fair the other day, I also came upon this free hairstyle from Ade.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s just a perfect easy breezy style for summer vacation goodness.  Just pay 0L, no need to join a group!  The Hair Fair is running until July 4th as well.

Ahh, freedom!

Happy Birthday, Second Life!

Happy Birthday, Second Life!

Oh my giddy aunt, FabFree.  I am pretty much exhausted after my foray to SL18B, which opens to the public today!  Last time I was at this event (last year) I remember being in awe at the size of it.  Well, I almost fell over when I saw that the event has grown even further, with 16 regions to explore, and over 300 gifts to pick up (I KNOW!).  I needed to head off somewhere quiet after all that collecting and unboxing… but boy oh boy was it worth it!

Happy Birthday SL!

As you know, SL18B is a celebration of all things Second Life.  This little magical virtual world we all inhabit is a haven of things we get to do that we may not be able to in RL, and for that I’ll always be grateful.  The shopping section of SL18B is MASSIVE, so you may want to do it in stages.  I was the crazy person who did it all at once, and here are all my favourite things that I picked up – they’re all free, and there is no group join required to get the goodies.  You’ll find that the links below will tp you directly to the stalls where I picked up the gifts.

  • FREE Dress by Pixicat sized for Maitreya Flat, Hourglass, Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy & Legacy Perky
  • FREE Shoes by Gos Boutique sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE Hair by Ade in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE Eyeshadow by Alaskametro with an Omega applier

SL18B is running until July 6th, so don’t despair if you can’t get in right away (it is QUITE busy).

Phew, I’m bushed!
