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

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!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Sarcasm

Sarcasm

Alright Fab Free’rs, I have to say I really am not in to the whole concept of a New Year resolution. I’ve made them in the past, and struggled to keep up with them, and ultimately ended up feeling guilty or disappointed in myself if my resolution didn’t work out. I think we tend to put too much pressure on ourselves to become the best brightest shiny new version of ourselves just because it’s the start of a new trip around the sun. I am all for self betterment, I just think it has to happen in my/your own time.

ZFG

For this post, this group gift hoodie top from ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) just really summed up the concept of a New Year resolution for me. Sarcasm is also my favorite kind of ‘casm, whatever that means. lol The ZFG group is free to join, and this snarky shirt is free with your ZFG group tag. Since I know my cell phone covers up part of the text it reads “My New Year’s resolution is to reign in my sarcasm. Like that is going to happen.”.

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

Zombie Suicide

These glasses. Moons, stars, oversized lenses, these glasses from Zombie Suicide called out to me “Pru, you must take us home with you…”. Really, a must-have for me. They are the most recent group gift at Zombie Suicide, and the group has a 100 linden join fee. There are also past group gifts available. This gift has a color change hud as well that allows you to change the color of the frames, and the moon/stars so you can match these babies with everything.

Dress How You Want

Comg soon

Hey Fab Free! I am going to show you a pretty wicked outfit today. Everything in my photo here, except the head, body and boots will only cost you 2 linden to make this outfit. What a steal! One of the greatest things about SL is that we can dress however we want, when we want. We can even wear summer clothes in the middle of winter!

Look great for only 2 linden

Both the hair and necklace I am wearing right now are 1 Linden each on the marketplace. One of the gifts is the DMT Necklace, and the other is a hairstyle called Breakthrough. Visit the Marketplace and grab these for only 1 Linden per piece!

And now for the great outfit…

If you like clothing that is almost not there, this the perfect outfit for you. The shorts are just adorable. It’s nice to wear such summery clothes, even if it is winter now.  Both the lovely white top I have on and the denim shorts are free lucky board prizes at Seniha. Simply join their free group and then wait for your letter to pop up! Easy-peasy!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Seniha has several cute new items up on their Lucky Letter boards that you won’t want to miss. Along with Seniha there are some fabulous free prizes at the Bumblebee Lucky Letter boards.

Both Seniha and Bumblebee will require you to join their store group to participate in the Lucky boards. Both store groups also happen to be free to join. I picked up this pretty purple top at Seniha as a free Lucky Letter prize. My denim shorts are a free Lucky Letter prize at Bumblebee.

Cozy Summer

Backyard BarbequeIt’s Summer now, the season for backyard barbeques and escaping to the cottage. Hopefully some of you are enjoying some time outdoors! I’m sitting by the fire and cozy wrapped up in my blanket! Let’s just hope the mosquitos don’t bite. The Sylvia Bomber Jacket and Leggings is perfect for the outdoors, which is a super comfy set from Bumblebee. I purchased this with some free store credit at SL17B they are currently giving out, so read below for the details.

Free Credit Galore

Bumblebee is giving out 300 free credits for all at their booth in SL17B. Simply click the large board in the stand to collect your gift card credit. The set I am wearing is one of their exclusive megapacks, four of which are being sold for 150L a piece at SL17B. I purchased this whole exclusive megapack with a fraction of my store credit, leaving room for more items to shop for. There is also a free tshirt gift at the Bumblebee SL17B Booth.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Legacy

Head over to Bumblebee Main Store for More free credits!

On top of this offer, you can claim an additional 300 L credit at the Bumblebee mainstore. Simply join the free Bumblebee group and click welcome board to the left of the front desk. If you have never joined their group before and are new to the store, you can claim this welcome gift of free 300L gift credit. If you have received this promotion in the past, though, you are not eligible to claim it. There’s a number of free lucky letter boards in the store too, so grab those while you visit Bumblebee!

Happy Shopping, Fab Free!

Subway Woes

Subway Woes

Oh Fab Free, I’m hanging out in the subway.  A thing I promised myself I’d never do again!  For years and years I took the subway downtown, battling the elements, stinky and rude people and even a few mice.  The subway where I live is a 1970’s tiled masterpiece, and wouldn’t you know it, the universe conspired to get me right back where the trains rattle by noisily and the announcements are unintelligible.  But the difference was that when I used to schlep downtown on the subway in RL, I wasn’t wearing free clothes!  SO TAKE THAT!

Um…Anyway…

Bumblebee have some great lucky boards that I stalked the other day!  It didn’t take too long for my letter to come up on two boards.  One contained these fab leggings (the rear view is to die for, not gonna even lie) and the sweet little tank I’ve got on.  Just join the Bumblebee group for free and nip over to the lucky boards to get your own!  Word on the street is there is a group gift credit for new members as well, so make sure you grab that too if it’s still available!
