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!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Kupra, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), MeshBody Legacy

Let’s Do This!

Let's Do This!

We’ve come to the part of the evening where suddenly I’ve got loud music on, the champagne is chilled and all sorts of sparkly dresses have flitted through my mind – visions of NYE revelry.  It’s time to get dressed up and get out onto the grid.  Come on FabFree – let’s kick 2020 to the curb NOW!

Byeeeeeeee

Step 1:  an awesome dress.  Ricielli have got you covered on this front, as they’ve got their New Year Hunt kicking off.  Each gorgeous item is priced at just 15L (as is tradition) and there are so many pretty things to choose from.  I’m currently wearing #1, and I love it’s sparkly exuberance.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Ricielli Hunt New Year 2021

Swish Swish

Beusy are also ringing in the new year with a hairstyle for members of their VIP group.  The Nyx hairstyle is a high ponytail that comes in three parts:  the ponytail, the bangs and the hair base, so you can wear each part separately, mixing and matching as you like, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours.  I wore just the ponytail.  It’s cool because it’s got quite a bit of motion to it!  The Beusy group is currently 350L to join.  You can get this hairstyle by clicking on the wording at the top right of the gift vendor.

NYX HAIR+GIFT@BEUSY.

Happy New Year, FabFree.

I hope 2021 is a whole lot brighter.

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

The Quest for Carbs

The Quest for Carbs

There was a thing I used to do on weekends that would totally get me through the rest of the week back in the early 2000’s.  I’d hop on the subway, head downtown to the mall, buy a bunch of stuff I didn’t need (it was often some form of fun costume jewelry, a t-shirt I didn’t need and possibly some butterfly-shaped hairclips…but anyway) then head to get some horribly unhealthy food.  Wouldn’t that be nice right about now?

Don’t be Jelly

There’s a new group gift at Envious!  The shirt, dress, garter and shoes all come in this generous group gift and even better, the group is currently free to join!  I’m not sure for how long, since it actually says the price will go up November 3rd…so hop on this while you can before it changes!

Update:  Looks like this group will be free to join until November 30th!  The date in the inworld group was just a typo!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

In the Bag

Memoire also has a new gift out, and it’s this fun little purse.  It’s shaped like a Happy Meal, which is kinda awesome, really.  I think that’s what made me think of trips downtown to eat copious amounts of trans fats.  Anywho, the group is free to join, and the bag comes in a bunch of different colours too.  Sweet!

I think fries come with this shake!

Sharkle

Sharkle

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Can you believe we are nearing the end of the week already? I feel like my week flew by. Even so, I am ready for the weekend. For this post I’m excited to share two awesome freebies with you. First, this top is part of a  free group gift at Mashumaro. Second, the sparkles in my hair by Beusy are free at Collabor88.

I got a good little giggle over this t-shirt from Mashumaro. It says “I don’t shine, I sharkle” and there’s not a thing I don’t like about that! This cute shirt comes with a matching pair of shorts that I decided not to wear. I’ll add a copy of the vendor photo below so you can see them. They are the kind of thing you’d want to wear to be extra comfy around the house. The Mashumaro group is free to join and there is more than one group gift available.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

~[Mashumaro]~ Jawsome Sharkle Edition Advert

I think these hair sparkles by Beusy are so fun and pretty. They are meant to be worn with the new Beusy hairstyle also at Collabor88, however they are tint-able, and modifiable so you could size them to fit over other styles. These sparkles are free, no need to wear a certain group tag or anything. You’ll find it at the Beusy booth above the two hairstyles.

Video Games

Video Games

I can’t imagine anyone being at all surprised that I’m super nerdy a lot of the time and pretty proud of it too! This is also a specific instance in which I am perfectly okay with perpetuating a few stereotypes. Gaming headsets are nerd gear. Gamers are nerdy, and it is awesome. Glasses are sexy, and also nerdy. The two go together ladies and gents! Books, especially on a bookshelf with photos of space, also nerdy. I love it! lol Lastly, I happen to be wearing a group gift romper, which may not be a nerdy stereotype but it is super comfortable. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about my nerdilicious finds. Also, please don’t take any offense to my name calling. In my mind being a nerd is not a bad thing, and this is all meant to be in fun and not judgmental in anyway. ❤

Spoiled 

If you head to the back of the Spoiled store you’ll see some rather racy gamer girl outfits with accessories. One of those accessories are these winged gaming headphones. They come in a fatpack of color options with choices for coloring 2 parts of the headset, and they are completely free. Just buy them for nada, zip, zilch, zero linden.

BND

These adorably nerdy glasses are another Marketplace find by BND. These “Vintage” beauties by BND can be yours for just 4 linden. They also have a color change hud with options for the frames, lenses, and stem ends.

Someone Stole My Sign

The Geeks Unite event (a childrens/teens event) starts August 7th and runs for a few weeks. At this event you can pick up this “nerd” bookshelf set by Someone Stole My Sign (SSMS) for just 1 linden. The gift also includes an ottoman (not shown).

Chic Moda 

This cute low-cut romper is the August group gift at Chic Moda. This gift comes in three sizes, and has a texture change hud with six choices. The Chic Moda group is 150 linden to join.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Hello Summer!

Summer Bright

Hello Fab Free and hello summer! The Women Only Hunt 6 started yesterday and while I haven’t picked up all the gifts quite yet, I did pick up all the WOH6 gifts at Crystal Store. Yes, I said all the gifts. Crystal Store has 6 total hunt gifts that are 10 lindens each. For this hunt you’ll be searching for a bright yellow sun with a smiley face on it. The Women Only Hunt lasts from now until June 30th. I’ve added a copy of the hunt prize key from Crystal Store so you can get a better look at each of the prizes.

There’s nothing quite like crisp white fabric in summer, and I love this cute head-to-toe look from Crystal Store. The full set includes the top, skirt with belt, shoes, sunglasses, headphones, and ice cream cone (not shown in my photo). The sunglasses, and headphones can be sized via touch menu, and the ice cream has a bento hold pose. The skirt, top, and shoes are sized for Maitreya and Belleza bodies only. Happy Hunting!

Here We Go…

Here We Go...

Well hello there Fab Free!  I’m sitting here trying to string some words together about this new adventure I’m about to set out on.  (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then peep Love’s news from yesterday HERE.)   I am so completely and utterly honoured to take the reins on the blog, though taking over from the ever organized and unflappable Love Trill will certainly be a challenge.  There are so many things that she did behind the scenes to keep our community thriving, that she really does deserve a massive round of applause.

Thank you Love, for your service to the Fab Free and Second Life communities.  You are a marvel!

That being said, the team and I are looking forward to bringing you more awesome freebies, and a whole lot more…I’ve got a few ideas!  STAY TUNED!

Now Down to Business…

I picked up my shiny bustier over at Cloth!  I love the satiny pink, and I’m sure I can dress it up or down to suit any occasion.  To get your own, just join the Cloth group for FREE and click on the vendor located on the main counter of the store.  This cute little top is sized for Maitreya bodies.

Is This Cheating?

I got a heads up from Fab Free reader Kenton about a deal that’s featured at Anxiety right now.  I dunno if it’s kinda bending our Fab Free rules by just a little bit, but it’s too good of a deal to not tell you about!  If you join the Anxiety group for 77L, then you get access to a HUMONGOUS box of backdrops and photo props.  I do love a good backdrop, so this was a deal I couldn’t pass up….the little rule break (possibly) is that this gift will cost you 77L as well (2L over our limit! Ack!).  Anyway, I know you just might forgive me when you see that there are more than 50 backdrops and photo props in this box, so you can take 40 billion awesome pics on a budget!  You can get a preview of what’s in the “Goodbye Neon” gift box right HERE.

Thanks for being part of Fab Free, everyone.

See you on the grid!
