FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


By the Sea

By the Sea

To the beach on a Monday?  But of course.  It’s easy to shirk one’s duties when you can teleport pretty much anywhere.  I’m off to a secluded beach, the wind blowing gently and not a human in sight.  Sorry, I was social distancing before it was called social distancing!

Happy Anniversary!

It seems like there are anniversaries all over the place these days in SL, and Baiastice are celebrating their 15th Anniversary (a very auspicious number, if I do say so myself) with this awesome beach outfit in a full fatpack of colours, and the cover up skirt is removable via the HUD.  The group is just 50L to join, and there’s a whole wall of really lovely items just behind the counter.  You’ll find this gift by the birthday cake!

The Love Shack

The Love Shack

It’s beginning to look a lot like… SHOP & HOP!  Yaaaaaaaay!  Oh gosh, we are always so entirely spoiled when Shop & Hop rolls around.  Plenty of gifts, all of them free.  I’m nipping out into the cold just to pose very meaningfully in a way to underscore just how excited I am for all things pink, red, and completely sweet.

Love is in the Air

Phew ok, calm down Aline.  Breathe!  As you may (or may not know), we at FabFree basically venture out into the world of our own volition, find things we want to blog, pay any associated fees, join the groups etc etc etc.  It’s not an easy task, but we all love it very much.  When it comes to Shop & Hop, it’s a massive undertaking with 10 shopping regions and over 200 stores to visit.  Today is early access day, so I made my way over and picked up as much as I could, unboxed it, tried it all on and put together my faves.  Phew!  Anyway, keep reading to find out how to get early access and where to find direct links to every store.  Here’s what I picked up!

  • FREE dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite & Perky in both opaque and transparent versions
  • FREE bracelets by Michan (see closeup below)
  • FREE cookie by Hangry in several different colours
  • FREE hair and hat by Elikatira with a massive HUD included

 

Shop & Hop officially opens tomorrow, but you can join the SL Birthday group to get in early.  You’ll find all the participating stores and direct slurls right HERE.

Copy and paste this code into chat to join the group: secondlife:///app/group/8db35111-979b-14a7-6a74-b47be86ce04f/about

You’ll be unpacking foreveeeerrrrr!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland

Hey gang,

As promised I am back with more wonderful finds for your holidays!  Honestly, you need a list everyday to remember which places to check for advents, next ups, new events!  It’s enough to make a girl swoon with delight!

That Crazy Shop & Hop!

Here is another favorite find from Shop & Hop (which opens today, yay!  If you can’t get in, don’t you fret none!  It is open for a while, and it will be easier to get in after a couple of initial days), this time from Les Sucreries de Fairy… Sweater dress, wonderful leggings and fabulous hat (I love me some leggings and a floppy hat!).  This is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop (No group required!), amongst many goodies you can scoop up while you are there.  This outfit fits Maitreya Lara only.  But I bet the hat fits anyone!

My shoes are also a free gift at Shop & Hop, these are from Baiastice and they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy Ouch
  • Maitreya
  • Cinnamon Chai

They come with a HUD giving you a bunch of gorgeous colors to choose from so you can wear these little boots with *anything*!

Lastly my lovely hot cocoa with sparklers (I know, I told you, I can’t resist!  I’ve been trying to get this one every day since the Arcade opened!) is from Amitie and was 50L per play at The Arcade.

Well I am freezing from this walk, so I think my hot chocolate needs a refresher, stay warm y’all!

Sticky Sweet Heat

Sticky Sweet Heat

It’s hot out today where I am – the kind of sticky hot that makes you uncomfortable in pretty much anything you wear.  Luckily, Ms. Aline Passiflora is the unflappable type who can get away with doing insane things like wearing patent leather and latex in 35 degree (Celcius people…Celsius) weather, while nonchalantly holding a handful of sticky candy that by some miracle has not dissolved into an unfortunate goo in her palm.  What can I say, she’s a pretty cool customer…. ahem.

Back to SL18B!

The madness that is SL18B rages on, and there are so many pretty things to show off that I had to put together yet another fun outfit to display my hoardings.  As you may know, SL18B is running until July 6th, and you don’t need a group to get these free gifts, just buy them for 0L.  Here’s what I’m being unflappable in today:

  • FREE top by Stories & Co. (it’s actually half of a bikini…but rules are out the window) sized for Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite,
  • FREE pants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Baiastice sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE gummy bears by Seka with left and right hand hold options

Things may have calmed down a bit (an eensy bit) since it’s been open a few days, so do enjoy!  The above links will get you right to the designer booths, and if you’d like to have the whole list of every shop, you can find it right HERE

All in the Dark

All in the Dark

Time for a bit more creepy and smidge more crawly.  Well, maybe none of that, but definitely a lot more fancy, dark and free!  I just love October.  It’s so filled with lovely things, and there are oh so many to be had in Second Life!

Back to Shopping and Hopping

The Halloween Shop & Hop is still going strong, and you’ll certainly be able to shop a little more lag free now that the event has been on for a while.  You have until November first to make your way through the eight sims filled with goodies!  You don’t need a group for any of these freebies!  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • FREE Dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya Petite, Maitreya and Perky in 12 Colours
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink in 8 Colours
  • FREE Drink by Dahlia

Lovely!

Fly, Fly Away

Fly, Fly, Away

Once I get you up there
Where the air is rarefied
We’ll just glide
Starry-eyed
Once I get you up there
I’ll be holding you so near
You may hear
Angels cheer, ’cause we’re together

Gacha Good

Yep, I’m dreaming of the heavens today…time to spread my wings and float!   Anyyyywhoos, It’s that time where I get all excited about the fact that Amitomo has a new gacha out at Kustom9!  They always put out super cute and very playable gachas.  By very playable, I mean that it’s super easy to put an outfit together in just a few pulls.  I only played twice (seriously, I promise) and got the cute top (check that rainbow detailing around the hem) and awesome jean skirt.  At just 69L per pull, this is a great gacha to play!  You might get lucky and get the rare hair too.  This gacha set is sized for Maitreya.  Head on over to Kustom9 to play, you’ve got until September 10th!

Song is stuck in my head again!

A Message of Hope

A Message of Hope

Sometimes the day requires a bit of dressing up.  You know, the usual packed schedule of balls and high-class affairs always calls for an inventory packed to the gills with dresses for just such occasions!  I found a lovely gown that comes bundled with some good news.

Sn@tch is Back!

I was happy to hear that the owner and designer of Sn@tch, Ivey Deschanel was back inworld after some health battles.  She had been on my mind recently, since her weekly notecards filled with hope and positive messages usually offered me a pick-me up.  Well, she’s back in business right now, having refilled her lucky boards and riot vendors with new goodies.  I stalked the lucky boards for a while, and ended up with this long, classic gown as well as the “Princess” hair.  Both free!  You don’t even have to be a group member for these awesome finds.  Just hang out until your letter comes up!  If you are a group member, then check out the new group gift in the VIP lounge while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • XS-XL with an Alpha Layer

Word on the street is there may be a new fishing outfit soon too!
Best wishes from your friends at Fab Free, Ivey.

All My Lovin’

All My Lovin'

Oh goodness Fab Free, are you ready to be drowning in gifts yet again?  It’s time for yet another round of the Linden extravaganza known as Shop & Hop!  It seems like only a little while ago (aka December) we were visiting the massive builds and picking up loads of free goodies, and here we are again swimming in boxes.  It’s an excellent problem to have!

Shoppin’ and Hoppin’

I’m trying to stay organized this Shop & Hop round, so I focused on just one sim at a time.  I went to the Aurelian sim first, and found all sorts of gorgeousness.  It was very hard to choose what to show you, to be honest.  Here’s what I put together:

  • FREE top by Miss Chelsea in three different gorgeous textures sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Physique
  • FREE lingerie by Alaskametro in three different colours with appliers for Classic Bodies, Maitreya and Omega
  • FREE crown by Baiastice
  • FREE poses with lolllipop prop by Infiniti, three different poses in the box

I can’t tell you how many fun things there were to unpack, you’ll just have to see for yourself!

The Wild Woods

The Wild Woods

There is pleasure in the pathless woods
There is rapture on the lonely shore
There is society where none intrudes
By the deep sea, and music in its roar

 George Gordon Byron

A Magical Moment

I am fully aware that Halloween has come and gone, but as per usual I will give you the sage advice that you can wear a bit of a spider web whenever your heart desires.  This gown by Baiastice has me feeling a bit ethereal in the woods.  This pretty number comes with both a sheer and opaque version, so you can cause a sensation if you so desire, as well as four different colours to change to in the HUD.  To get your own, join the Baiastice group for 50L, and it’s all yours.

Hey there Fabulouses!  Are you ready for summer?  I sure am :).  My RL weather is not co-operating at all with my plans to get a jump on summer…  In fact, I am still not certain that we are having spring yet, alas I can enjoy the sunshine in SL!  I have news of three group gifts to share with you today.

Hey there Sailor!

Safira has a brand new group gift up on the VIP wall upstairs at the Safira Mainstore, and that gift is the original mesh Thais Swimsuit that comes in both navy and blush!  The group is 50L to join, but that will gain you access to the WHOLE VIP gift wall, which is growing every week it seems.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Still FaMESHed!

The FaMESHed Anniversary round is still going on for another week and if you haven’t popped in for gifts, you simply must!  The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join and almost every designer is participating with a free treat for group members.  I have added the Baiastice Sailor Hat and Minimal Anniversary Gift Glasses that are both free at the event at their respective displays.
