A Bit of Space

A Bit of Space

Time to get outside for some fresh air, FabFree!  I think I definitely need a bit of open space, some movement and to feel the wind on my face.  I’ve been spending far too much time cramped indoors in a mostly uncomfortable chair staring at a screen, so a bit of movement is on the menu today!

I Ador-sy It!

Adorsy are celebrating their move to a new sim with a new group gift!  This cute tunic and leggings can be customized with so many different colours that you’ll be playing around for ages.  You also have the option of removing the leggings, so you can turn this into a cute and slouchy dress to give you a nonchalant sexy look.  To get yours, join the Adorsy group for 30L, pay the vendor 1L (it will be returned to you immediately) and voilà!  All yours.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy

You may also find some items on sale in the shop while you’re there, but word on the street is that today is the last day for the discounts!

Off I go!

A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life

This little wood nymph is exploring the woods in search of a bit of mischief.   I think that sneaking through the woods, perching on branches and foraging for magical berries might be just what is on the menu tonight!

SLF

I have no idea what SLF stands for.  I’ve been looking and looking for info, but to no avail.  Someone out there must have some sort of info for me, but I digress.  This pretty dress (the rainbow highlights are sooooo nice) comes to you from Antaya and it’s an SLF Gift!  It’s just 25 Lindens on Kaleidoscope Island.  You’ll find several other really affordably priced gifts there too, but I really can’t figure out what SLF stands for.  I’m sure the minute someone tells me, I’ll be exceedingly embarrassed!

Update: FabFree reader Aimé did some sleuthing and told me it stands for SL Free, a group on VK!

See you wood nymphs later!

Every Day’s Clutter

Every Day's Clutter

There’s nothing I like better than random, pretty clutter.  I love piles of cute things to look at, and I love rearranging them on furniture until I can see it all and it tumbles at me gracefully.  I had so much fun putting this scene together that I quite lost track of time today!

Classy and Sassy

The January group gift has made its appearance at Sass, and it’s super cute.  It’s this grey and yellow babydoll dress that strikes a nice balance between cute but still utterly wearable in grey and yellow.  It’s a little breath of spring in the midst of winter for me, so I highly appreciate it.  You can grab this lovely dress by joining the Sass group for 10L and then paying the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  You may also want to grab the Teleport Hub version of the dress too while you’re there, that group is just 10L to join as well, so do check it out.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

I Heart It!

When Astralia announced their latest group gift was a super cute desk and chair set, I knew I had to have it.  It’s adorable and girly in all the right ways.  The desk is heart-shaped, and it comes with a matching chair that kinda has me feeling a bit “Alice in the court of the Queen of Hearts”.  Just a vibe I’m getting!  Grab your own by joining the Astralia group for 149L, then you can dress up your desk area too!

Now, where did my fries go?

A Trip to Ontiville

A Trip to Ontiville

Well, my dear readers – time for something a little different today!  Have you ever thought that you’d like to have a little spot to live in SL, but you’re not exactly flush or in the position to spend Lindens?  There are people who totally understand and have created an awesome experience and sim that can get you just that…without the cash!

Ontiville!

I was IMed the other day by the lovely Elba while I was doing my rounds and she told me all about the new sim her and her partner have been working on.  It’s called Ontiville, and it’s goal is to create a community where you can be provided with free rent and goods for those who aren’t in the position to spend Lindens.  How does that work, you ask?  Well, it means that you can get a virtual job in their city, complete quests, or afk in a coin hotspot to earn city coin.  You can even explore the sim to find some hidden coins!  Sounds like a lot of fun to me, and could be an excellent experience for those who are looking for ways to spend their time in SL.  Elba also mentioned that the first week of rental is a free trial – which is pretty darn cool.   Do check out Ontiville, and see what they’ve got going on.  I was accosted by some friendly residents while I was there and got a very nice feel from the place.  If you’re looking for more info, you can check out their website HERE

Oh, and a Freebie

I also thought I’d mention that the Lucky Boards at Tentacio have been changed out, and four new ones with cute accessories are there just waiting for the taking.  No need to join a group, these boards are free for everyone!  I got this pile of magical books and beakers while I was there which fit in perfectly with the little book shop behind me.  Good luck!

See you in Ontiville!

Hunting Through Alleyways

Hunting Through Alleyways

Time to do some alleyway fashion posing.  This seems to be a thing that happens a lot in SL.  You know, nip down an alleyway and be super fashion about the whole thing.   I will pose in an alleyway if I must, but only if I get some dumplings after.  Promise?  Ok!

Whose Bags?

I’m heading back to The Free Dove today, purveyors of all things free and fantastic.  They’re upping the ante this month by bringing back their monthly hunts!  It’s been a few years, so it’s super exciting that this tradition is back in full force.  Looks like each month there will be a new designer featured, and to kick things off it’s MYBAGS.  The way it works is that you join the free Free Dove group, then search The Free Dove for 5 little gift boxes.   Each one contains one of the bags you see in the vendor ad below.  If you want the other 5, just head on over to MYBAGS and search for 5 boxes there!  That’s 10 fun gifts all for free.   I’m super excited!  I picked up the #1 bag, and to be honest I’m not sure if I grabbed it at The Free Dove or MYBAGS, but that’s all part of the fun.

And More!

While I was at The Free Dove, I also picked up these fun sparkly pants by Wellmade and the matching shoes (sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet).  You always know you’ll end up with a great outfit for free when you visit.  Again, just join the free group and the giant amount of gifts are yours for the taking!

  • Maitreya

Have Fun!

The Kawaii Energy

The Kawaii Energy

There’s a mall where I live that specializes in all things Asian.  You can get pretty much anything you need from that part of the world there (weirdly flavoured chips, Hello Kitty toasters, and as many sea cucumbers as your heart desires).  Back in the early 2000s, I went there with a good friend of mine and was introduced to the joys of insanely adorable stickers and stationery from Japan and Korea.  There’s not as much of it nowadays, it’s all mostly been replaced by cell phone covers – but I’m always trying to recapture the colourful girly-ness of it all!

Super Kawaii

Energy Weekend price is in full effect, which is exciting in itself (we love a good deal), but along with all the fun shopping also comes a few very nice free group gifts for those who join the free Energy Weekend Price group.  If you’d like to grab the HUD with all the info, you can head to the Buyer’s Room HERE.   I did so, and found all the info about this weekend’s free gifts quite easily.  My first stop was Absen where I got this semi-transparent dress (and matching boots, btw).  Very nice indeed!  Then what really got me in the Kawaii mood was this fun aura by Amazing.  There are three versions in the box, but I opted for the cute hearts, flowers and pandas.  They’ll trail behind you as you walk and fall about you if you’re just standing around.  Fun!  It’s all free – but only for the weekend, so don’t delay!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink Original

It’s all too cute!

Penny Lane

Penny Lane

I’m suddenly feeling very “Almost Famous” in this outfit.  There’s something a bit Penny Lane about it all, with a bit of fur here, a bit of wild abandon there…and rock and roll present throughout.   The fashion legacy of the 70’s echoes throughout today’s trends, and I think it will for a long time – at least I hope it does!  Let’s get you in some dangly earrings and faux fur, and you’ll feel the vibes too.

Coco but not Chanel

COCO are always so generous.  The regularity and awesomeness of their group gifts are always things you can count upon, and this cool jacket is the latest in a long line of goodies.  It comes in this understated charcoal colour, and two different sizes (not specific to any body, just smaller and larger chest sizes). To get your own, join the COCO group for free!  There are loads of other gifts out too, enough to get you a whole new wardrobe.  Yay!

Look How they Shine For You

My sweet and celestial earrings are the newest group gift from Romazin.  They are known for their delicate jewelry, and these pretty and dangly shoulder-dusters sure make me happy.  They are completely free when you join the free Romazin group – and there are other lovely gifts for you there too.  With these pretty earrings, you also get a quite extensive HUD so you can match them to pretty much any outfit.  How nice is that?

I’m suddenly in the mood for some loud music….hmmm….

All the Blossoms

All the Blossoms

In the cold depths of January, all I can really think of is a bit of sunshine and warmth.  It’s been grey in my part of the world for the past forever weeks, and so the thought of sunshine and delicate cherry blossoms warms my insides a bit.  It’s all I can think of!

Blossoms

Apple Blossom just put out a new group gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group (SLFO)! The group is free to join, and with it you can access to lots of quite lovely gifts.  There are two different versions of this dress available for members – this one I’ve got on as well as a plain pink one.  You can also wear it with or without sleeves, if that’s your thang!  It’s sexy and cute all at the same time, which makes me one happy camper.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

Belle

Belle Époque have also put a new free gift out for members of the SLFO group:  a lovely set of bento nails.  They come in some really cool holographic-esque colours, and I think you can make them work with loads of different looks.  They come rigged for Maitreya and Legacy hands.  Again, this group is free to join, making these nails entirely free!

I’m not going back to the cold!  NEVAHHHH!

Late Again

Late Again

Guess who woke up late again?  Yep.  Moi.  I think that there may have been some half-asleep alarm snoozing going on, but I don’t have the facts to back that up.  When I noticed exactly what time it was, I had to get dressed in a rush and put on whatever was clean and to hand.  Not gonna lie – turned out kinda cute!

Back to KitCat

I was telling you the other day about a group gift I picked up at KitCat, and while I was there I spent a bit of time stalking their lucky boards.  I was lucky enough to have my letter pop up for both this top and skirt (sized for Maitreya), and it really gave me “I am late for school, but here we go” vibes.  The top can be worn with or without the skeleton hands on it, by the way.  The KitCat group is free to join and there are quite a few fun lucky board prizes out right now.  Good luck!

Oh gosh, I forgot my lunch.

A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

It was high time to head to the beach.  After a long day of work, buried under pages and pages of who knows what drivel,  I looked at my watch and thought “you know…I need some vitamin sea today”.  I put on my unnecessarily complicated sandals (but so fashion!) and slipped into something summery then headed down to feel a bit of warmth.  I was ever so glad to have brought my camera with me, just so I could capture a bit of summer and carry it with me wherever I went afterwards.  A few snaps of palm fronds will keep me going until I can escape again!

Feeling Lucky

I was a bit inspired for some warmth today after I saw the newest lucky boards at Luas.  This cute little outfit had me dreaming of warmer climes the minute I saw it (you have the option to add or remove the tied jacket)!  To gain access to the lucky boards at Luas, just join their group for 50L, then wait for your letter to come up!  There are also loads of really great group gifts for you to pick up while you’re there, making this group join fee ever so worth it.

Roman Sandal Empire

Looks like Empire are having a bit of an item retirement sale at the moment.  The store isn’t shutting down, but all items in the store are on sale before they disappear forever, making room for the new.  Pretty much ever pair of shoes and accessories are 199L (some 99L!) for fatpacks, which is an awesome deal.  However, what caught my eye was the 35L per pull gachas you’ll find at the back of the store.  I got these awesome sandals as well as the fun glasses for just 35L each.  Worth a shot!
