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!!!

Arielle is looking fabulous in…

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.

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.

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

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!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

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!

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!

xx
