In Need of Therapy

In Need of Therapy

Shopping therapy is 100% a thing, right?  Sometimes when a mood of ickiness is upon me (perish the thought), all I need is a bit of aisle perusing.  I don’t really need to buy anything (though I usually do) to make the mood dissipate.  Though, I think I’ll have to start calling what we do here at FabFree a bit of freebie therapy…

Well Suited

This really cool top and pants combo from Tiffany Designs is giving me exactly what I need today to stave off any potential ick.  The top and pants can be worn separately (don’t you love the detailing around the hem at the bottom of the pants?) and they come with 6 different colour options in the HUD.  Best of all, this outfit is entirely and completely free, no group join required.  Yeap, you heard me right!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Fitted

Now do I really need another pair of shoes? Survey says yes!

Golden Girl

Golden Girl

Well hi there FabFree!  I’m feeling a bit like a golden statuette at an awards ceremony tonight, and I’m loving every minute of it.  There’s something about the shimmer of gold that imparts a bit of richness to just about anything.  Plus…glitter.  Need I say more?  Glitter bomb everything!  (Except maybe make it like…environmentally-friendly glitter, yeah?)

Hunting Time!

It’s time for this month’s Free Dove hunt!  By now, you may have heard about how these monthly Free Dove hunts work- 5 free items at the Free Dove, and 5 at the featured store’s main store.  Today, I’m showing off one of the gorgeous hunt prizes that Nilsy has put out for free!  All you need to do is search for 5 vases hidden in the Free Dove wearing your Free Dove tag, then head over to Nilsy, join their free group and search for 5 more.  I’ve added the key below so you can see what else is up for grabs!  It’s all gone by the end of the month so don’t delay!

A Vintage Goth

Coming Soon

I have a bit of a “vintage goth” look going on today, so I decided to chill and take a picture by this gorgeous stained glass window inside this spooky, dark-lit room. I just love this type of style so I’m excited to share these finds with you today. 

FabFree Gift @ Furtacor

First up is this awesome Jesabel Dress, which is a free fatpack at Furtacor. This one is a FabFree group gift, and it’s simply gorg! Simply join our FabFree group and click the package at Furtacor. If you are having trouble getting to the gift room at Furtacor, take the teleport board to the location that says gifts. There is  LOAD of free gifts from this designer, and a few for just the FabFree group members! Yay! I absolutely fell in love with the emerald and black checkered pattern of this dress, and there is a load of other colours and patterns included with Jesabel that can be changed via a hud. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Legacy Female & Perky
  • Signature Alice
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Altamura
  • Ebody Classic

Dark Vintage

There are a few more freebies added to this look to create that dark, vintage vibe. I will list them to make it easier on the eyes!

  • The gorgeous pearls around my neck are a dollarbie at Lorien. They’re beautes. 
  • The pearl headband is yet another free group gift at Cae. Remember that Cae is closing at the end of the month, so make sure you go over there and get all the gifties before they disappear! The headband can be resized. 
  • The spiky hoop earrings are a free lucky board gift at Sn@tch, no group required. 
  • The adorable rainbow eyes are a free gift on the Marketplace by Nimu. I am wearing the BOM version of the eyes, but these also include appliers for Genus, Lelutka, and Omega. 
  • The gorgeous black lipstick comes from an amazing 1L deal on the marketplace. This is a lipstick applier made specifically for Lelutka Evolution heads made by Bellucci. The “Her Glossiness” pack comes in several other natural lip gloss tones tones!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Cae is Closing… </3

I’m very sad by the recent news that one of my favourite jewelry stores is closing. Cae will be leaving SL at the end of June, so make sure you stop by the store and grab all their free gifts before they go away forever. My bracelets, earring and adorable necklace are all free gifts from Cae, and the group is free to join. Cae also has a 75% off sale so load up before the gorgeous jewels are gone forever!

A Boho Set

Coming Soon

Phew, I’m getting tired FabFree! This is a lot of freebies to gab about all at once. I hope I don’t overload you. Finally, I wanted to show off an amazing Boho furniture and decor set at Careless. This provided the perfect new set for my skybox, and it costs only 25L. Yes, 25 L for the couch, rugs, tapestries, lights, cushions, cactus, table, all of it… incredible! Such a steal! I got the adult set and it is the same price as the PG. Just waltz over the Careless and grab this set for a low price. 

See you soon, FabFree!

Splish, Splash

Splish, Splash

It’s an easy breezy kind of day, FabFree!  I’m hanging out on the dock, eschewing reality with a firm hand.  I’m not usually one for swimming in lakes.  I had a run in with a snapping turtle once in my younger days, and I’ve never quite enjoyed their murky depths as I once did.  Instead, I just hang out on the dock looking fabulous and reading mind-edifying fashion magazines!

Feeling Blue…Berry!

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the latest group gift from Blueberry, and it does NOT disappoint.  This super sweet frilly bikini is just one of the TWO awesome looks you’ll find lurking in group notices.  Splish and Splash are both gorgeous never-take-it-off-all-summer type of bikinis in a full fatpack of lovely hues.  Get this though, they ALSO happen to have a little wedgie option so that you can give a bit more of a peek of your assets.  Even better?  The little wedgie removal animation that comes with.  I was laughing for ages!  You can get yours by joining the Blueberry group for just 20L and checking in notices!  Love it!

To join the Blueberry group, just copy and paste this link in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/15a9ea63-fc80-0534-d878-1dab689ccafb/about

Sizes

  • Freya

Exiled at Sea

Are you also in the  mood for some completely free and utterly charming hair?  I knew you’d say yes.  Exile have a new, free hairstyle out at The Free Dove!  It’s so perfect for a nice breezy day at the beach, and comes in a huge fatpack of colours.  You’re sure to find one that fits your look perfectly!  To get yours, join the Free Dove group for free, and click on the vendor in the hair section.  Yay!

Maybe I can also get some trashy novel reading done… it’s a rough life!

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

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I have to say, I was so ready to see this super cute sweater dress group gift at ChicModa. Not only is it lovely on, it isn’t red, or green! I even got a compliment from my guy while wearing it. Right now you can join the ChicModa in-world group for just 25 linden. This dress is the January group gift, and there are past group gifts still available. Also, don’t forget to check out the group-only Lucky Letter boards while wearing your ChicModa group tag. Happy Shopping!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Merry Yule, and all those Holiday happy things to each and every one of you! Thank you as always for being here. I hope your day is bright. Maybe it can be a little bit brighter with a few group gifts to splurge upon here in Second Life. Yesterday TRUTH sent out a new group gift hairstyle to their VIP group! Also, Beautiful Dirty Rich has out a free 500 linden gift card for their group members now through December 26th. I’ll let you know all about each of these fantastic fabulous gifts below. Enjoy!

TRUTH 

This pretty up-do is a free group gift given to the TRUTH VIP group. It has a style hud that allows you to style the hair with or without the tendrils in the front, with or without the hairbase, and a slightly more kempt or more wispy bun. The little fairy lights are also optional. This group gift from TRUTH is of course a fatpack as well, so you’ll get all the hair colors. There is a join fee of 350 linden to join the TRUTH VIP group. You’ll find this gift waiting in the notices.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

Beautiful Dirty Rich put out a generous 500 linden store gift card just in time for the Holidays. This free group gift can be picked up and used from now through December 26th. The B.D.R. group is required, you’ll need to wear the group tag when you click the gift vendor. The group is free to join, so all you need to take advantage of this sweet offer is open up a group slot. I managed to pick up 3 different items with my gift card, so if you are careful with your spending, 500 linden will go far!

Merry Christmas!!

Busy Beauty

It’s beginning to look a lot like….MORE GIFTS!  Everywhere you go!  Oh my goodness, FabFree.  There is so much going on on the grid right now that my eyes may be going criss-crossed.  Just when I think I’m getting through my list of things I want to show you, I have to add more to it!  I’m not complaining, I promise.  We’re so spoiled!

Miss Chic

I love Miss Chelsea‘s fashions with an undying passion.  They always are something that I know I *need* to have!  Every year around Christmastime, they spoil their group members with a lovely dress, which is always perfect for parties.  This year is no exception, and the Star Dress is just so sexy and slinky that I just don’t know what to do with myself.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours too!  To get your very own, join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the main desk of the store.  You’ll find lots of other gifts there too, making this group join quite worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Geometric Love

Alaskametro, another of my absolute faves has put out some sweet gifts for members of their group (which is 50L to join) underneath the Christmas tree in their store.  A fantastic array of Christmassy nail appliers with Maitreya and Omega appliers which just make me happy.  There are so many to choose from, I really don’t know which to put on first!  Though I usually do a really nice mix of them (which is an option on the HUD).  There’s also a skin (in several tones) and shape under the tree there for the new Lelutka Lilly head, which is free at this time (get your info on that HERE – you still have a few days!).

Group gift: "Xmas Geo" nail art appliers

No rest for the weary!

The Bright Side

The Bright Side

I’m in the process of looking on the bright side at the moment.  It may not look like it, because I’m sitting in the dark on a staircase.  But I find that those times are sometimes the best for finding the silver linings.  I’m happy that I don’t have to race around to stores at the moment, or that I don’t have to go to all the parties and gatherings that I’d rather avoid (you know, the awkward ones).  So really, even though this Holiday season is super different than ones we have lived in the past, I think we can still find a bit of joy hidden among all the madness.

Sparking Joy

One thing that has been super great about all this time spent at home is that there seems to be an overabundance of gifts inworld.  I really love it, not only because of all the freebies, but also because it shows that deep down we all care about each other.  I see these gifts as a little spark of care sent to us from designers all around the globe.  We’re all united, even when we’re apart!  Anyway, enough of my nattering.  I’ll get to the freebiesTres Chic has just started their newest round, and wouldn’t you know it?  There are free gifts for members of their free-to-join group!  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE Hair by No.Match in a pack of black hair hues.  The little Christmassy bow is also included!
  • FREE Dress by Catarsis sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Shoes by Ricielli sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Tres Chic is running until January 10th!  Put it on  your to-do list!
