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!

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.

Snowfall

Snowfall

I’ve always thought of the notion of a first snowfall as something magical and wonderous, though admittedly that’s partly due to having experienced so few in my lifetime. That said, there are quite a few free gifts waiting on the Christmas tree inside the Cosmopolitan Sales event, and these delicate snow flurries by Persefona are my favorite. For this look I also picked up the free Cosmo gifts by Limited Addiction, IDTTY, and ARTE. I also happen to be wearing a cute little sweater dress by Rebel Hope that you can find inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the details.

Persefona

These pretty little snow flurries are an attachment by Persefona. You can get them for free at the Cosmo event by joining the event group and clicking the stockings on the Christmas tree just inside the entrance. The Cosmopolitan Sales event group is free to join. This wintery gift includes a resizer hud that lets you easily adjust the size of the snowy attachment.

Limited Addiction

My sassy cute knee-high socks and ankle boots are also free at Cosmo, courtesy of Limited Addiction. You’ll find them waiting on the Christmas tree with the many other free gifts. These sassy holiday themed shoes come with a texture change hud for the socks that lets you pick from a few holiday color combinations.

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

IDTTY

Both my eye makeup and lip-color are part of the free Cosmo group gift by IDTTY. Their gift is a festive makeup “Jolly Days Collection” that includes 2 eye makeup looks, and 2 lipsticks. I’ve added the vendor photo below so you can get a look at both of these gorgeous holiday makeup looks.

Appliers Included: Genus, Catwa, Lelutka
IDTTY FACES - JOLLY DAYS

ARTE

Most skins include a browless option which makes experimenting with different brow shapes and colors a lot easier and more fun. The brows I’m wearing are the free Cosmo gift by ARTE. I think they look sleek and quite natural. In this free gift you’ll find BOM layer eyebrows in brown, light brown, dark brown, blond, red, and a tint-able version. Also there are Omega, and Catwa appliers, and a brow shaper included.

Rebel Hope

Finally, this pretty sweater dress is a Marketplace find by Rebel Hope. It’s just 25 linden and includes a color change hud for the ties and metal bits. If you’re interested in a color other than red, there are several to choose from. Each color is just 25 linden on the Marketplace.

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

Cry Baby

Cry Baby

It’s true, everyone cries. Sometimes you just gotta let it out, am I right?! Not only can I be a little bit of a cry baby at times, it also happens to be the title of a wonderfully terrible movie that I can’t help but love. Those two reasons were more than enough for me to pick up this group gift collar from Ruver. I also stopped by the current round of Cosmopolitan and picked up the event gift top by Serena.

Ruver

This group gift choker/collar at Ruver comes in two sizes. One is fitted for Maitreya Lara, and the other is an unrigged version. You’ll find it waiting for you near the desk at the store. The Ruver group has a one time join fee of just 25 linden. My inner goth girl is thrilled with this find!

Cosmopolitan Event Gift

The low-cut long-sleeved cropped top is a free event gift at Cosmopolitan. The top is by Serena, and it comes in a few sizes. It’s the kind of top I really like having in my closet because it can easily be dressed up or dressed down. To get this gift you’ll need to join the free Cosmo event group and click the gift vendor just inside the entrance to the event.

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

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).
