Slap Those Boards!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have a quick post for the day so let’s get to the freebies, and I hope you enjoy the beautiful nature and scenery shown in my photo today! 

Today I am showing two adorable free gifts you can use to achieve this cute summer, flowery look look. One is even a free FabFree group gift! We’re spoiled!

Free Finds of the Day

My hairstyle is from one of the free Midnight Madness boards run by Alli&Ali Designs. They have MM boards all over the grid, so make sure you go to this location in world to find the locations of all their MM boards! Just click on the blue board with all the midnight mania board locations, and the LMs will pop up in nearby chat. Trust me, you will me running around SL all day slapping all those boards, and many lock! I am wearing the Fanny Hair in Winter Glam colours, which is one of Alli&Ali Designs many free MM board prizes. This particular hairstyle appeared recently on one of Alli&Ali Designs‘ “Team Sport” boards and although this particular style isn’t up on the board right now, it regularly rotates and Fanny is bound be at one of their other MM board locations. There’s many styles and free hair to collect with this MM board game, so it’s super fun! To play MM boards, you simply touch the boards and when the target locks, the item delivers for free straight to your inventory at midnight. None of these boards require a group, so they are all free to play. 

Secondly, my absolutely gorgeous eyeshadow is a free FabFree gift at Rubedo! I absolutely love these shadows. These ones work with BOM, but they also have a free EvoX set of similar shadows. Rubedo‘s makeup is simply gorgeous so you must get in on the two new FabFree group gifts at Rubedo

See you soon, FabFree!

Can’t Stop the Beat!

Can't Stop the Beat

Hey, FabFree! I’ve been really enjoying rocking out to music all week, so I decided to commemorate that with a post. I wanted to find a microphone and pose to belt out singing some tune but that was harder than I thought it would be… maybe next time ;). In the meantime, I’m just hanging out and dancing at this little vinyl vintage music hangout I built for myself. You can’t stop the beat!

A new FabFree gift @ MOoH! 

First off for today are these rocking heels and high socks at MOoH! This is their latest free FabFree group gift, and they are fab. Just join the free FabFree group to get this great gift at MOoH!. You can change the shoes and socks to white, black and red, and add a few patterns to the socks like this hot heart thermometer pattern. I thought that heart beat pattern reminded me of sound waves, which went perfectly with the vintage and retro vinyl records backdrop and music theme I selected today’s post!

All the Vintage

Speaking of retro, I got this great vintage hairstyle at the 60’s Shopping Event & Treasure Hunt, a new event that looks really exciting! This event has a treasure hunt on, which means that at the sim you will find 2 types of gift boxes. Some give their gifts on touch, and others will ask a trivia question. Those with the trivia will open a window where you can type your answer. When the answer is correct, you receive your gift! Isn’t that awesome? Alli&Ali Designs has 8 vintage hairstyles set out as free gifts for the treasure hunt, including this cute updo I have on. Time to get retro hunting, FabFree! I’m not sure when this event ends, so go quick!

More frees at the Sn@tch Outlet!

The sexy black and purple skybox seen in my backdrop is a freebie at the Sn@tch outlet. As long as I can remember, this item has been in my inventory along with all the other great freebies they have for new residents when I went there as a week-old newb about 3 years ago. The skybox is still super hip in my eyes and it worked perfect for my shot today! The freebie also includes furniture and you could easily set yourself up with a new skybox to live in! No group is required for this one, just head over to the “free wall” at the Sn@tch outlet. and grab it for 0L. They also have a host of other great freebies in their outlet including a great skating AO, some spiky leather bangles and more so if you’ve never been to the Sn@tch outlet I highly recommend it!

Go dance to the beat, FabFree!

It’s beautiful and filled with magical creatures, unicorns, and massive magical elephants! It truly is a magical place. Moving on from magical creatures and places, I also have a few magical gifts to share with you today!

The set includes 2 different styles of chokers which have little flower petals on them, two different styles of headbands, 2 sets of earrings, and hairclips.

Hide & Seek

Coming Soon to FabFree

I was playing a little game of hide and seek with my friends. Yeah, I’m way too old for that, but who cares? We all know I’m a bit childish. Anyways, I hid in the cupboard but eventually my friends found me. Bummer!

The Perfect Hiding Place

Sometimes you just need to hide and retreat into yourself to feel better, you know? Well, this great cupboard by Zigana has the perfect solution for that. The cupboard is only 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Not only is it a beautiful cupboard, but you can also crawl inside it and it has adorable little animations. The doors even close after you get inside it! This is one of many dollarbies you can find by Zigana on the Marketplace. I am also showing a barn skybox and a maroccan table made by Zigana as well- most of the items on their Marketplace store cost 0 or 1 Linden because this amazing designer retired in-world some time ago. What a treat!

The Caroline Dress

Caroline is wearing the Caroline dress at Evolve, and it’s currently on sale for only 55 Linden! I’m not sure how long this offer is on for so you better rush over there if you want it! The dress comes in dark purple, pink, and a light and dark teal. It’s gorg! 

Sizes Included

  • Freya 
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass

I also matched the dress with an adorable little silver hearts choker from Boutique#187. I just love it. It matches this whole look perfectly! The choker is just out for 0L, free of charge. 

Dany

I am so in love with this hair, and it reminds of Daenerys from Game of Thrones! Guess what? It’s a freebie from Alli&Ali Designs and I won it on one of their many MM boards at this location

Dollarbies at Lorien

Finally, my rainbow nails- which are small in my photo- are only 1 L at Lorien. These nails are omega only. They have a number of dollarbies at the entrance of the store, so go check them out! It can’t hurt to shop when the items are so cheap. 😉

Have fun hiding, FabFree!

Fuzzy Inside

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree. Today I am filled with cuteness. I set up this adorable pink and sparkling decor set in my home. It makes me feel fuzzy inside!

More Love from Careless!

I have some more great things to share from Careless today! I am showing 3 items for 10 Linden each, and they are super adorable. The cute unicorn lounger, the wall painting behind by head, and the little hearts decoration on the table next to me each cost only 10 L. Please check the credits below for the specific names of the items so you can find them in the store for such a low price.💖

The little table beside me is also a free lucky board prize at Careless. For this item, the full set includes chairs as well, and it can be resized. 

With Feathers in Her Hair

This cute hairstyle I am wearing today is yet another free functional demo from Alli&Ali Designs that I grabbed on the Marketplace. This one is called Olivia and she is gorgeous. The hair comes in a blonde-blue mix in the free colour. As I mentioned before in this blogpost, all of the demos by Alli&Ali Designs include one hair colour for free! This hair also has these amazing little feathers attached near the ears. It’s stunning. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

More July 4th Fabness

I know this post is a day late for Independence Day but the celebration does carry over to the weekend. YAY!!! It’s a long weekend for the hard-working Americans out there. I found more Fabness to celebrate the 4th of July. I had a lot of fun putting these together and finding different spots to take these photos.

I got this teeny red, white, and blue bikini at ViVi and it was a free gift for all. It was a great grab! Snowpaws had this really cute American Flag headband for sale ($100). I added these truly fab heels from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I thought the heels were well worth the price. This pic was taken at Ihla Brasil Rio. I loved the look of the surf and rocks right off the beach.

Next I popped on over to the Oahu Vacation Resort to visit the USS Arizona Memorial and pay tribute to those brave souls who lost their lives on that infamous date of December 7, 1941. They fought to preserve our freedom as we know it today.

My dress is fitted mesh from Paisley Daisy and was so excited to find this cute dress for only $10L at a limited Time Only sale. My shoes are the same ones pictured above from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I decided to change my hair to my favorite style, Sonja, from Alli&Ali. That was a very welcome MM surprise. The cute hand-held flag was a gift from [LNS Designs].

I wanted to try out a new skin, Mari SunGlow, from The Skin You’re In I picked up last week at Fab Free HQ for free! I LOVE free! And wow, it fits in with this holiday – it’s all about freedom from tyranny.

Waiting for my date….

I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go, yet! I’m sure my date is on his way. Wait! I must check my calendar to see if my date is really tonight. I think I’ll just stand here in this beautiful garden setting and wait to see what happens so this will be a quickie post.

Well anyway, I’ve got on this great dress designed by Rowena Springflower. It’s named Kathy and comes with a color change HUD so you can choose the color depending on your mood. I had a lucky night and won it in a Midnight Mania Board! Rowena always designs beautiful outfits, gives out a lot of gifts and prizes, and her prices are very reasonable. And she’s an absolute doll! I paired this free clutch from MoiMoi and cute  heels from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes.
