FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Can you salsa to bagpipes?

Hello again all you lovely FabFree readers 🙂 I thought I would give you a wee bit of a break on the dots for this post. What I am not giving you a break on, is great freebies, as I have some I think you will love 🙂

By now, you should all be familiar with B!ASTA, as I know we have shown many wonderful pieces of clothing from there. Well, Bomboloni Freschi, the owner and creator of B!ASTA, is branching out a little, with a new store called La Gazza Ladra {by B!ASTA}. To celebrate the opening of this new store, she has put out a super cute, mesh dress as a free group gift for B!ASTA group members! This beauty is called The Thieving Maggie, and actually, I really like the mash-up of a Scottish tartan texture mixed with a very Latin style dress. Tartan skirt ruffles…so much fun. I really wanted to get a latin type dance pose going for my picture, but alas, in my ever-growing selection of poses, I did not have one. Oh well, the dress didn’t really need it 🙂 The B!ASTA group has a small L$50 fee to join, but this dress alone is worth the fee I think.

The other freebie I have for you today is also a group gift, from Maxi Gossamer. These cute daisy printed bangles come in 2 sets, of 2 sizes, the large, which I have on my left wrist, and the small, which I have on my right. These are texture change, with 4 different textures, I’ve included the display picture for you to see all the choices. How nicely do they go with my dress? I love when things work out like that! The group is free to join, and once you do, just go into the notices and grab your bracelets. This is one group I hold on to for sure, you can never have too much jewelry.

It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….

A Pirate’s Life For Me!

Queen Anne's Revenge

The first thing every pirate needs is a ship! This beautiful vessel is titled “Queen Anne’s Revenge” and not only is it completely FREE on the Marketplace, it’s actually functional. It can be sailed, and has a hud to fire the 52 cannons on board! The second thing a pirate needs, is treasure. You know, gotta have shiny things to show off and doubloons to hire other pirates to go and get more shiny things!! I’m pretty sure that is how things work. Luckily, there are a few pirate themed events going on right now. One of which is the Skull n Bones Hunt. I picked up this awesome treasure chest full of gold and trinkets, along with it’s very own guardian for just $1 linden at Mirage. The treasure chest has several male and female sit poses, and the macaw is color-changeable. Once I had my ship, and I had some treasure, I felt like I needed a really awesome outfit. ‘Cause let’s be honest, in any job, it is important to “look” the part. With that in mind, I waded through the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and raided the Alchemy gacha for some incredibly well made, highly detailed pirate gear. It was then that I got a sweet little notice from MOCK Cosmetics with a group gift that matched my pirate ensemble perfectly! In the MOCK Cosmetics group notices you will find a set of “absinthe” shaded lipsticks. In love with my new pirate life, I had to share it with you! Yo ho Yo ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we’re loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me

The Gothic Bunny Does Cabaret

Broken Bunny

I’m just going to go ahead and dub this look “Gothic Bunny Cabaret”! Can you tell I’m feeling a bit sinister!? It’s the middle of the week and thank goodness, we are that much closer to the weekend. There are tons of fun events going on in Second Life right now, it would be nearly impossible to keep up with all of them. Either way, I’ve had a blast visiting a few of them. The Candy Factory is still going, though this round is ending soon. I picked up the black-lace sparkly top by Toxic High at the Candy Factory, gatcha style for just $25 lindens. The top is fun and a little bit racy, and I like that it comes with appliers for Lolas Tango. To go with my fun new top, I scouted around several events, and picked up the runny eye-makeup by Wicked Peach at the current round of The Countdown Room. They are just $50 lindens and I think they are dark but playful. I hope you like this sinister cabaret look as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
