$L 10,200 Worth of Store Credit and Gift Cards @ Second Life’s 19th Birthday!

Hey FabFree! I am here to show free and group gift store credits and gift cards available @SL19B. SL19B closes on July 10th, but I suggest you go as soon as possible to get the credits and spend them as sometimes they are taken away early. This year’s birthday has the largest offering of free store credits and gift cards the event has ever soon!

What are Store Credits vs. a Gift Card?

For those who need a refresher, gift cards are objects that send to your inventory that allow you to buy any product in a store. You have to add the gift card hud to your screen and use the “buy” menu to purchase it. In comparison, store credit adds linden “credits” on your account, which you can use to purchase items at a store using the vendor’s menu. Note that often store credits and gift cards have an expiry date and some limitations on items that can be purchased with them, so read up on the offer when you get it!

Out There

Out There

There comes a time in every girl’s life where she just needs to lounge provocatively against a stairwell and wear a cyber dog mask.   Forget about all the frills and fancies that come with Valentine’s Day (at least for just one moment) and take a walk on the side of madness.  Because, we can all use a moment of madness now and then.

Inu

I saw this mask at the Tokyo Zero event and thought “wow, that’s different”.  It was one of those moments where you wrestle with yourself over whether it fits your aesthetic or not, then you decide that you don’t really care either way.  You just have to have it.  It’s brash, it’s bold, it’s a bit scary… and it’s free!  You can explore your cyber-creepy fantasies (thanks to Tanaka, who made this gift) without shedding a single Linden.  Just join the Tokyo Zero group and click on the sign at the landing post.  There are several different colours so you can glow (and growl) to your heart’s content.

Buzzing Away

I paired my mask with something a little non-sequitur, but I was having a bit of an out of the box moment.  This free corset with sleeves is the gift from Bumblebee that you can pick up at Shop & Hop.  Of course, you can style it a bit more romantically than I did, or be as odd as I feel.  Shop & Hop is soon coming to a close (on the 15th), so make sure you grab all the free gifts before they disappear.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.

Hey Gang,

Jacx told you the start of a story in one of her posts a few days ago about three girls.  This story is ongoing.

In fact, Jacx is not the only gypsy wandering the grid right now.  Yours truly is as well.  I’ve even spent a couple of nights at the Fab Free Headquarters and as lovely as it is, it feels like staying at someone else’s house, like it’s nice and all, but you can’t wait to get back into your own bed.

It’s a strange feeling, since I haven’t been homeless in world since I first arrived those many years ago!  I’ve been fortunate to always manage to keep at least a small roof over my head.  Every night I lay my little avatar head down I think maybe tomorrow will be the day!  Sigh.

I really do hate when things are out of my control.  This is a big psychological challenge for yours truly!  The longer it goes on, the harder it gets.

Well, maybe tomorrow will be the day!

Meanwhile, Aline has been hard at work getting a new hunt ready for everyone to enjoy, and it is only a couple of days away!  Starting on the 8th, you can hunt in the Fab Free Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt.  It will run from the 8th to the 30th of November, and I’ve got a little sneak peek for you!

This cute dress is one of the hunt prizes from Roped Passions.  This is a 0L-5L hunt, and both the women’s and men’s prizes at this store are 0L.  (Matching sweaters!)  The sweater I am modeling fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus

Come on, tomorrow, bring us girls some happy news!!!

Contrast

Contrast
Classic and timeless. Black and white outfits have been a fashion trend through the ages.

Fashionistas Of History

Queen Elizabeth I of England and Diane De Poiters of France, fashionistas of their day.  Both were well known for pairing black and white together. The reason for this being that the colors contrast each other, therefore enhancing each other making the colors pop! Jacx has used this iconic statement, teaming up Bumblebee Ali Distressed Jeans, (white). Free Lucky Board, group is free to join. With Neve‘s Salutation Jacket with 8 color hud (sized for Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy. Legacy Perky) Uber Anniversary Hunt Free Gift – just search for the gift box.  You can find all the hints for the hunt HERE, the hunt runs till September 22. Completing the outfit, with added animal prints. These prints seem to be making a come back this season.

Kicking It

Heels
Hi, today is kinda a mish mash. Hunt items, a Fabfree Fabulous Find GG, store credits plus a 50L Sunday Sale top.
Might be a long post, so grab a drink, and settle in for some great finds.

The Love Of A Great Shoe

The Uber Anniversary hunt is in full swing, and Jacx swung by Phedora where she got a sweet free Animal Print HUD to go with the shoes she bought at Uber (check if you have any leftover store credit from SL18B – Jacx did and got the shoes for free at the event- Yeah!). Another free Uber gift is Carol G Bridah Feet Tattoo. I just love Carol’s tattoo’s 🙂 Plus the feet tattoo added a little extra to the shoes. You can pick up these items, by doing the Uber Anniversary Hunt. You can find all the hints for the hunt HERE.

While putting this outfit together, trying different tops, jackets, ya know trying to get the “look”, The Sunday Sale hud came out. And there on its pages was the perfect top. Reed‘s Brenda Top with a 30 color hud, (prints & solids) for a sweet 50L. Finishing touch for this outfit, a Fabfree Fabulous Find. The free Cazimi August 2021 Earrings GG shown here. The group is 250L to join.

Simply Basic

Bumblebee Sussie Super Skinny Jeans

Hi, Jacx is back stalking Lucky Boards again. LOL. It really is kinda relaxing, sort your inventory, shop the marketplace, chat with those peeps waiting with you. Plus when your letter comes up, you go home with a goody.

The Simple Pleasure Of Jeans & Tee’s

Jacx is an outdoor type, (if you hadn’t noticed from previous posts) 🙂
Her basic wardrobe is jeans, tees & tops, (sweaters in the winter) skirts, a ton of shoes.  Did I say jeans? This gives a lot of versatility to mix and match, and create several outfits, that can be dressed up or down, depending on the added hair, jewelry, shoes, or jacket. Bumblebee Sussie Super Skinny Jeans, free Lucky Board, group is free to join, makes a great addition to a basic wardrobe.

To complement the jeans, add this tee from Tres Blah which is just 75L from last week’s Saturday Sale (it’s still up at posting time) and these super cute shoes that I picked up for free by taking part in the Uber Anniversary Hunt at Lybra – just search for the gift box.  You can find all the hints for the hunt HERE.

Spring, Do Your Thing

Spring, Do Your Thing

It’s usually around this time of year that I start grumbling about the fact that it’s not spring-like enough for me yet.  My part of the world tends to skip right over the pleasant part of blossoms and warm winds and whatever other things they try to tell you about in poems and books.  We get this greyish muddy season until May when things finally explode with life.  So, as per usual, I’m off to the fairer climes of SL to get in my Springtime cavorting.

Sounds Tasty

Pink Cream Pie has a new group gift for their members right now.  It’s this cute criss-crossed tank top that’s calling out Spring to “do it’s thing”.  And I couldn’t agree more!  To get yours, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L and then click on the vendor in the group gift area upstairs.  There are lots of nice gifts and new ones monthly, so totally worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

The Way it Goes

Mosquito’s Way (always one of my faves) also has a new group gift out, and they’re just so pretty I can hardly handle it.  These sweet flower-adorned pumps will have you ready for Spring in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.  You can get yours by joining the Mosquito’s Way group for 50L and then clicking on the vendor by the front desk.  There are a bunch of other awesome gifts too near the front doors.  These pretty heels come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Come on Spring!  GEEZ!

On the Moors

On the Moors
It’s about time to head out for a ramble in the moors.  There’s something so special about the flat, wide expanse of heather and grasses that you’ll find rippling gently in the heights of Yorkshire.  It makes me think of rare, sunny afternoons, with clouds scudding by, the promise of a cup of tea and a French fancy by the fire a bit later.  I mean, the fire bit is needed to warm up your inexplicably bare knees!

Wellies

To traipse over the moors, you clearly need a good pair of rubber boots.  If they’re covered in cheerful florals, all the better.  You can get these pretty ones over at Sass!  They’re the latest group gift that you can pick up by joining the group for just 10L.  Pay the vendor 1L, and then it will be returned to you.  Oh, and they come with an HUD to change from pink to blue!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

For the Road

If it gets chilly while you’re walking (that wind has searching fingers for bare midriffs, of course), you’ll clearly need a sweater for later.  This gallantly draped sweater comes from COCO, and it’s their latest group gift!  It comes in both these beige stripes, and a cheerful yellow as well.  The COCO group is free to join, and you’ll find lots of super wonderful gifts there!

I think a few scones might be needed too!

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Cosmo Event Group – secondlife:///app/group/7382cf06-a663-d569-9683-5c3f0edd968f/about

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!
