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!

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!

Attention Shoppers, it’s time to rush!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Alright Fab Free, the heat is on. I know about all you shoppers out there who wait until the LAST DAY to hit the events, scrambling around trying to grab all the goodies before they’re taken away. I know cause I AM that person! But hey- I’m not judging! Maybe you couldn’t get into the sim! Well today I’m going to tell you about two must haves from the Shop & Hop before it closes today, so make sure you scoop these up before the event ends tonight.

Beloved Blueberry

Blueberry is spoiling us with a free 400 L Credit for all at their Shop & Hop location. No group join is required, so just touch the board to get in on this great offer. If you head over to the Blueberry main store you can grab the ombres pack of the Romance dress which will be completely covered by the credit gift so it is completely free. The credit expires in 2 weeks from when you add it to your balance, so this would be a perfect item to claim with your credit. I will link Blueberry’s Shop & Hop location, including the cam sims, and the main store below because I know that it can be VERY hard to get into the Blueberry sims during major events. I wish you the best of luck getting in on the last day today.

Go rush over before it all poofs!

Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Camp Quarantine

Camp Quarantine

Hello hello Fab Free! Yes, you are seeing things correctly, I am wearing a top made from masks. Honestly, even though it does make me laugh, I do kind of hope that this will be the way to wear masks one day sooner rather than later. My quarantine fashion moment is courtesy of a new group gift at Worldwide. Also, Petrichor has two new group gifts, one of which is this delicate white mandala-like tattoo. You know how this works from here, I’ll give you more details below, and full credits at the end. Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs!

Worldwide 

Sometimes it’s good to find a little comic relief in whatever way you can. Yes, this top by Worldwide is good for a bit of a giggle, but it’s also cute for a warm sunny day. This “Quarantina” bra top is a free group gift at Worldwide. You can join their group for free as well. The top comes in the classic blue and white paper mask colors shown only, and quite a few sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya, KUPS, Kupra, Slink Hourglass

Petrichor

I love this pretty upper-arm tattoo from Petrichor. It’s one of their most recent group gifts. The Petrichor group is free to join, so no reason to pass this one up. The tattoo comes in BOM layers only with a regular version and an “etched” version. Also, a little side note, Petrichor is formerly The Plastik, so that’s the group you’ll be joining.

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Wind it up

Fabfree Post:Wind it up

I know he thinks your fine and stuff but does he know how to wind you up?

So I need to learn to stop complaining about the lack of snow here in my state, I just went to toss the trash out and it’s coming down thick. Who would have thought it’s only the second snow this year?! I live in New England where there is supposed to be tons of it at this time of year, however, it’s been lacking lately. Wait! I just complained again about it… UGH!

Ladies do I have a Marketplace Deal for you! {Awear} Anja Top is listed on their marketplace shop for L$1! The tube top comes with a color hud 21 textures/color options. That’s 10 patterns and 11 colors =0 for a linden, one linden! I can’t believe this find!

Remember it’s for Maitreya Bodies only (sorry ladies)

This is Fine!

This is Fine!

Sometimes I feel like I’m the dog on this shirt.   This is fine!  Yes!  Allllllll good….. But then I realise that looking on the bright side isn’t necessarily always a bad thing.  At least, it gets me through a lot.  What about you?  Have you felt this way at all since last March?  At least we can poke a bit of fun at it all, now and then.

All Good in the Hood

Corvus are spoiling us with this hilarious and rather apt sweatshirt.  There’s a version for both males and females in the box, and it’s completely free.  No need to join a group here, just click on the vendor and buy for 0L.  See – it IS fine!

  • Freya
  • Gianni
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Jake
  • Legacy Man

  • Physique
  • Slink

High Pony

I always love a good crazy ponytail, and when it’s this bold and brash, it makes me even happier.  It’s the latest group gift from Love, and it kinda puts a smile on my face.  To get it, you’ll have to join the group for 50L, but there are quite a few group gifts there (even some fun clothing and more hair).  You’ll also find a matching hairbase to go with it, which is a nice added touch.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and you can switch the side of the ponytail with the style HUD.  Yay!

IT’S ALL FINE!  REALLY! 😉

New Year New Kicks

New Year New Kicks

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a brand new year and a new opportunity to make the best of all the future has in store. I for one intend to hit the ground running, pun absolutely intended. At the start of this new year with all the possibilities ahead I definitely need a new pair of shoes. Semller has our feet covered with their most recent group gift, a limited time free group join, and group-only sale. From now until January 8th the Semller group will be free to join and group members will get a 30% refund on all purchases while wearing the group tag. Also, group members can pick up a free fatpack of the Megalodeon sneakers. They are unisex in that there are male, female, and unrigged sizes included. These detailed shoes at Semller can be completely custom colored via a detailed color change hud. The hud has the ability to color several individual parts of the shoe or all of it at once. There are also 10 presets to choose from if you don’t want to pick the colors out yourself.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy (Male, Female), Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, Unrigged

Christmas Time is Here

Christmas Time is Here

Where did the weekend go? By this time Friday it will be Christmas Day! Can you believe it? I’m half in denial myself. lol Two things that seem to go hand in hand for better or worse are Christmas and shopping. I finally worked my way through the behemoth that is the Holiday Shop & Hop event and as overwhelming as it can be, I have to admit it was worth it. My inventory now flooded with gifts, I thought I’d share a few with you.

If you’ve never gone to one of the Shop & Hop events before, there are a few things you should know. First, there’s no group needed for the gifts, just click the gift box at each of the designer’s booths. Second, there are eight sims to wander through. Yes, I said eight. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of shopping and hopping. For this post I chose to share the free Holiday Shop & Hop gifts by Eclectic Stars, Unicorn, and Infiniti. Enjoy, and happy shopping Fab Free’rs!

Eclectic Stars

When it comes down to it, one of the labels that could be used to describe me (and I think most of us in SL) is “gamer.” Eclectic Stars put out the perfect Christmas sweater for any gamer girl as their free Shop & Hop gift. It has a Christmas tree on it made entirely of Space Invader-style aliens. :O So cute!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Classic), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer

Unicorn

As a photographer and a blogger, I’ve got an ever-growing collection of backdrops and photo props and I like it that way. The free Shop & Hop gift by Unicorn is this fun wintery holiday outdoor setting complete with a snowman, evergreen tree, and a festively decorated front porch. If you’re in need of a cute backdrop for some holiday photos, don’t skip this one.

Infiniti

Finally, this pose with the snowball and falling snow are part of the free Shop & Hop gift by Infiniti. The gift includes a set of 3 poses that include a snowball prop. The falling snow is a wearable add-on, and I have to say I love the detail of the pretty snowflakes. Almost like shoes, I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many poses! For now I’m off to go see if I can’t sneak up on Blue with this snowball. Wish me luck! lol
