Visions of Advent Calendars Dancing in Your Head

Visions of Advent Calendars Dancing in Your Head

Oh, FabFree… how I have been enjoying Advent 2022 so far. The FabFree December Advent Listing has saved me yet again and I am loving the presents so far! I have dreams of advent calendars visiting me at night in my sleep instead of sugar plums…

The Advent Calendar @ Ari-Pari

Today,  I am showing one of the advent gifts from Ari-Pari. All of their past and current advent gifts are available from December 1st through to the New Year. You need to be a member of the Ari-Pari VIP group to participate in their advent calendar and a new gift will be put out each day until January 1st, 2023. It only costs 25L to be in the Ari-Pari VIP group, and new gifts are regularly released to group members. Ari-Pari recently reopened their new store and I was happy to visit one of my favourite stores again! ❤

The t-shirt I am wearing is the gift for Day #1 from Ari-Pari‘s advent calendar. The gift includes a HUD of 10 basic colours. Each version of the t-shirt includes a pretty white snowflake design on it. This shirt is delightful, even if it is a bit chilly for a tee. 😉

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Reborn
  • Freya

Happy Advent season, FabFree!

On the First Day of Christmas…

120122 - On the First Day of Christmas - 01

And so it begins…

That’s right ladies and gentlemen…it is that time of year. Advent Calendars have opened up all over SL today and I am a total advent fanatic. Soooo I went hopping around the grid to see what sorts of amazing things I could find to show you. Are you excited for all the advent calendars this year? Don’t miss our awesome listing of participating stores!

Let’s start with these super fun thigh-high red boots. These are the 1st Day gift from Pink Mango. You must be in the group to get items at this store, but it is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE too! These lovely boots are fit for the following bodies:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya

See that beautiful lit tree in a tin milk can sitting in the corner? That is the gift from Hutspot for Day 1. It is also FREE and no group is needed to get this gift! For you prim conscious folks, it’s only 3 Li!

120122 - On the First Day of Christmas - 02

Let’s talk about this cute little romper. This is the Day 1 gift from Meva. Their advent calendar requires the store group and it is 100L to join. The romper is fit for:

  • Legacy + Perky
  • Maitreya + Petite

Next up are these long red nails. They are from Frick-n-Frack and are FREE with no group needed. They are fit for several bodies which include:

  • Belleza
  • BBL
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Slink

This lovely jewelry set, which includes the earrings and necklace, are the gift from M&M Style. They are unrigged and the necklace is resizable. The set is FREE and no group is needed for the advent calendar here either.

Finally I want to mention the house I was doing these photos in. This gorgeous little cabin is part of the advent calendar at MadPea this year. The gifts themselves are FREE but the HUD to get them is 500L. Honestly, I think this gift alone is worth that amount! I cannot wait to see what the other 23 gifts are!

Until next time!

Hooked

ig quality 2

My coverage of some of my favourite advent calendars rages on, FabFree, and the clock is ticking for me to wrap up these advent posts! Today I am showing some past prizes from [WellMade]‘s advent calendar.

Hooked on Advent

I discovered Advent about three years ago for the first time through [WellMade]‘s advent calendar, and I have always been so impressed by the quality of their advent gifts. In fact, their calendar was one of the first things that got me hooked on freebies. At the time I remember thinking, “Wow, these products really are amazing and free too!” They never disappoint and it is a treat to collect [WellMade]‘s prizes every year!

The Advent Calendar @ [WellMade]

Everyday you can get a new prize at [WellMade] for free on their advent calendar, and you need to join the free group to get in on the gifts. Of course, there are only a few days left of advent until December 24th. They may even have a special gift available on Christmas day like last year ( I am just speculating…).

The calendar this year is simply gorgeous, so you should take a look and see what’s available for sale at low prices in case you missed any past days. The past day’s prizes are on sale from 10L-25L per piece.

I am showing two past prizes which are currently on sale for 20 Linden each:

  • The velvet pants are the gift from day # 12. These come in green and red options and they are sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Kupra, Legacy, Hourglass and Physique.
  • The top and vest are the gift for day # 14. This item is sized for Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Lara, Petite & Hourglass. You can change both the vest and the top to green or red patterns.

Well, I think this will be my last advent post this season! Make sure that you check out the awesome list Aline compiled for us! You can access it by clicking the widget on the right-hand side of the FabFree blog homepage. There are a good amount of calendars that are also giving out past days gifts so go through the list and see if another prizes are still available! In my experience some designers may open up their past gifts for free on December 24th. You can access the FabFree advent listing here.

Happy adventing, FabFree! Have fun!

Good evening Fab Fam!  The day you have been waiting for is almost here as December 1st is just a couple hours away!

The FabFree December 2020 Advent Listing is live!

For almost a decade, Fabulously Free in SL has been posting a December Advent Listing and we pride ourselves in keeping this list up to date on a daily basis throughout the month!  The tradition continues this year with the 80+ stops  (Just to start with!!).  This list will be edited over the duration of December with small changes like link updates and store additions, but it is currently “mostly” complete so you’ll be ready with your list in hand to start your first day of Advent rounds tomorrow on December 1st!

Visit Every Day!

We have our list separated into four categories and itemized it in alphabetical order for ease of use.  As mentioned above, there are updates to this listing nearly daily so it’s best just to keep visiting the page rather than copy and pasting this list into a notecard.  You’ll want the most up to date listing so you can get in on all those sweet advent locations right? 😀

The FabFree Advent Listing is Coming!

Heya FabFree!

It’s *almost* the most wonderful time of the year!  One of the best traditions we have here on the blog, and in SL, is the unveiling of Advent Calendars across the grid during the month of December.  We aim to bring you the most complete coverage of these awesome events every year, and this year is no exception.  Work has already begun on the massive list, with many designers confirming that they will indeed have a calendar in their shop.

FabFree is a vibrant community, and we look to our readers, designers and group members for inspiration, help and tips at all times.  To that end, if you are a designer, or know of a designer that is planning an Advent Calendar this year, please let us know!  Please send Aline Passiflora a notecard inworld if you have a tip, and she will happily send designers a 3 second form to fill out for free coverage of your event.

We can’t wait to unveil it all on December 1st!

A Steamy Advent Calendar

A Steamy Advent

Hey, Fab Free! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know no one likes when Monday comes around but I have some pretty awesome freebies to share with you from Cremosas right now, so I hope this cheers you up from those Monday blues!

Cremosas’ February Advent Calendar

Today I am showing you a selection of free items from Cremosas, which are available to get until February 29th. These lovely presents are just a taste of some of the gifts you can get from their February Advent Calendar. Cremosas has been so generous that they have kept the advent train going since December- and been giving away a free advent gift every day since December 1st. You can grab their past advent prizes for the month of February for free now at their mainstore. Simply find the calendar, join the free Cremosas group, and click the numbers of each day of the month on their calendar. There are currently 24 gifts available for the month, and there will be a new one released each day until the 29th.

Steamy Advent Prizes

The prizes on the advent calendar for this month are really nice- and quite steamy! There is a lot of lingerie, sexy shoes and cute finds in many different colours. It’s a lovely selection of gifts. Naturally, I gravitated toward these great black boots, (which are sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Physique and Maitreya) (Day 4 gift) and this sexy dress (Day 5 gift) to make this outfit. I am also wearing a set of their heart bento nails (which work with Belleza, Slink and Maitreya), which is the gift for day 11.

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Maitreya

And a Free Choker to Top it off!

The perfect acccesory to complete this outfit is a free gift which you can grab at the current round of Access. It is a choker which comes in pink and red by Slightly Rebellious. Just head over to their booth at the event to pick it up.

Want Cremosas’ previous Advent gifts too?

If you want to get Cremosas‘ past advent prizes from December and January as well, they are all available as group gifts in the Cremosas VIP group, which costs 100 L to join. They are available in the store next to the current advent calendar. Enjoy!

Have fun, Fab Free!

Hello Fabulouses!  Have you been adventing?  I almost don’t want to ruin the surprise, but how else would I alert you to run right over to Glitzz and pick up the Day 10 Gift under the tree??

Day 10 @ Glitzz

Glitzz is a store I have been visiting every day this month for advent gifts under the tree, and each day has been wonderful!  They are all free, and you don’t have to join the group.  Simply touch the corresponding day gift under the tree at the shop and the gift is yours.  If you happen to miss a day, you can go back and purchase them for 50L each.  The gift for today is the beautiful Rya 2pc.

Make sure you are working off the fresh list on the blog, so that you have all of the new locations too!

Happy day 6!
