Kick Back

Kick Back

The weekend has arrived, FabFree!  I’m still reveling in the heart-spattered goodness of Valentine’s Day.  If it’s sweet, red, pink and sugary then I’m all for it these days.

Not Anti-Magic

This cute cropped top is the latest subscriber gift over at Promagic.  It comes with an HUD to change to 5 different heart-covered textures and is just super cute.  I think it would be fairly easy to make different looks happen with this top, pairing it with jeans, or even a skirt.  Always fun to switch things up a bit when you can.  To get it, you’ll have to click on the subscriber unit at Promagic.  It’s the big vendor with the ad for this top on it.  If you are part of the subscriber group already, you’ll have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get it, it will be delivered  automatically after that.  If you aren’t yet subscribed, just click! It’s all free, I tells ya!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Shoe-tastic

StephaneL have put out these cute heels as their gift for Valentine’s Day, and they just make me smile.  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.  To get them, join the group for 15L and they’re all yours!  You may want to also click on the big poster advertising 500L of store credit for group members, because as far as I understand it, that’s about to disappear!  Don’t wait!

/me makes heart eyes at you all

It’s All Love

It's All Love
I am entirely aware that Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to toss out everything that has a heart on it.  I’m a proponent of love 24/7, so I’ll be donning the hearts til I’m well and ready to stop.  (I’m sure one of my fits of moody darkness with come upon me at some point!).  Let’s dive in to all the goodies that appeared over V-Day that we haven’t gotten to show you yet!

Soft Wool

There’s a new group gift over at Tetra!  Whenever one appears I get kind of excited since they’re so cute and well made.  To get this pretty sweater (it comes with an HUD to change to 4 other other textures too), join the group for 50L, and click on the vendor.  If you’re feeling a bit lazy (isn’t it weird that we get tired from TPing?  Is that just me? ) you can also join the group from afar and check in group notices to grab it, which is always a nice option.  This gift is out for a limited time, and will be gone on Feb. 28th!

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Only Cats!

The little heart keychain I’ve got hooked around my finger made me LOL when I saw it.  It’s a new gift over at Boutique 187 and is completely free.  There are several amusing sayings to choose from on the heart, and I’m sure you’ll find one that tickles your fancy.  There are a few other completely free gifts there in the free gift section, so grab them too!

Lots of Love from me!

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Dress Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

  • eBody
  • Altamura

Good Fortune

Good Fortune

Happy Lunar New Year!  I know I’m a few days behind in wishing everyone a prosperous year of the Ox, but it’s my understanding that celebrations last several days, so I’m hoping you’ll all forgive my slowness.  Let’s light the lanterns and don some new clothes to make this year a sweet one.

The Zenith of it All

I picked up this festive and absolutely stunning dress over at Zenith.  They’re known for their lovely Lunar New Year gifts, and this year is no exception.  The LiHua dress comes in several bright colours, and there are even a pair of shoes to match (not pictured).  You’re going to be the belle of the lantern festival in this look!  To get yours, join the Zenith group for free and then click on the vendor.  There are lots of other pretty gifts to grab while you’re at it.

Shhh…I’m hiding out in here cuz I’m trying to escape from all the things I’m supposed to be doing.  The thing is, you put on some lingerie and a robe and next thing you know you’re far too sexy to be doing anything as pedestrian as washing the dishes.  I call this look “the dishes can wait, don’t tell them I’m hiding”.

The Hunt is Afoot!

It’s time for another awesome free hunt hosted by The Free Dove.  This month, the prizes come courtesy of one of my absolute faves – Alaskametro!  If you’re not familiar with how hunts from The Free Dove work, then let me break it down real quick.  There are 10 prizes to be found, but 5 of them will be at The Free Dove, and the other 5 are located at Alaskametro’s main store.  To get the prizes, you’ll need to joint the free Free Dove group, and then hunt for the red heart-shaped boxes all over both sims.  You’ll find some really fantastic prizes this round, including lingerie, robes, makeup, nail polish and even skins.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE robe sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique & Small and Medium.
  • FREE lingerie in BOM layers and an Omega Applier
  • FREE nail polish with appliers for Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE lipstick in BOM and Omega appliers
  • FREE eyeshadow in BOM and Omega appliers

You’ve got til Feb 28th to take part!

Happy Hunting!

Heart Attack and Vine

Heart Attack and Vine
February is approaching and Valentines (and Anti-Valentines) themed hunts are just around the corner.  I’ve been to a few different hunts on Windstruck over the past few months and I’ve always been impressed by how pretty the sim is and how nicely the hunts are set up. The Lost Hearts Hunt is no different.  The terrific free hunt gifts range from clothing to home decor.  Most of the clothing items are either unisex or there are corresponding male and female avatar outfits hidden separately.  The hearts are in plain sight, so no need to break out your magnifying glass and search in hard to see places.  I found plenty of great free gifts on the hunt, but my favorite had to be the Gothic Vine Gown.  It is a gorgeous strapless dress with a slit on the side.

The Lost Hearts Hunt runs until February 20th, so check out these wonderful gifts before the hunt comes to an end.

Cool Girl Style

Cool Girl Style
There’s nothing quite as cool as a patterned, oversized blazer.  I think you kind of have to be a “patterned oversized blazer” type of person to make it work, and today I have become that person.  I feel powerful, cool, and even like I can take on whatever in this look.  Do you feel like you need an injection of cool-girl style?  I’ve got just the item for you!

Kustom Made

You guys know me and Amitomo.  If they’re making it, then I’m totally into it.  It’s my absolute fave thing to play their gachas, because they are always so pretty and well made, and whenever you play, it’s a given that you’ll end up with a full outfit.  I headed over to Kustom9, and played only once (I do it for FabFree science, I promise) and ended up with this sweet outfit!  At just 69L per pull, you really can’t say no to a full outfit (sized for Maitreya).  It also came with an HUD to change the shorts and top colour, so you’re really ending up with several looks in one.  If you’re feeling particularly lucky, try playing a few more times for the Rare hair.  I didn’t get it, but you just might!

Good luck, cool girls!

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Cosmo Event Group – secondlife:///app/group/7382cf06-a663-d569-9683-5c3f0edd968f/about

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!
