Stay Golden

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m dreaming of the spring and summer seasons… oh how I miss the nice weather. I set up a Jacuzzi at my log home to experience that summer moment. The Linden homes never change snow in the winter months unless you set up your own so I can just pretend Winter doesn’t exist here…

Golden Hour

This pretty golden dress only costs 55L at Evolve. It’s on sale temporarily, and you can also get this dress in green, red, and orange. I went for the gold because I was in a golden type of mood. These dresses should be on sale until this Thursday but go ASAP if you want it because sometimes they are taken down at different times.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Legacy

Higgle!

I’m also showing a bunch of jewelery from Higgle tonight. I’ve posted a closeup so you can see all the intricate details and fine crafting that went into the creation of these beautiful jewlery pieces. Each item only costs 1 Linden each on the Marketplace.

Coming Soon

  • The rings shown on each of my hands are each 1L gifts & they fit Maitreya, Kupra, Legacy, Reborn, & Belleza mesh hands. It’s such a treat for me to find Belleza rings, as rings are a hot item that I can’t often find in my body size. Facing from where you’re looking, my left hand is wearing the Speranza ring set, which is a number of rings that wrap around three fingers. These rings come in sizes for both your left & right hands. You can purchase that ring set right here for only 1L. On the right, I am wearing the large, glamourous Melchior ring. This is perfect for for a more formal look, and it costs only 1L on the Marketplace. This ring can only be worn on your left hand. As it’s 1L, you may also gift this ring for your partner! It’s a wonderful gift, and beautifully made. ❤ Both gifts include texture change huds that allow you to change the colours of the metal of the ring bands and the gem stones.
  • My ear jewlery is 1L, which can be found for sale here. This piece comes in gold and there is a hud included to change the colour of the gem stone in the centre. This isn’t an earring, but a pretty wire decor earpiece.
  • The pretty floral necklace and arm braclet are also a 1L gift, which you can grab here. Both items are included in the package!

Return to Fabia

Fabia is such a generous designer! I have collected so many of their hairs overtime and I’m just starting to try them all on. This is the May hairstyle and it’s a current group gift. The Fabia group currently costs 200L to join. The hair includes several colour huds and a style hud that allows you to style the bangs or turn them off. It’s a super cute ponytail!

See you soon, FabFree!

Unicorns, Snowflakes & Multi-coloured Trees

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m hanging out at the gorgeous Mystic Dreamers Mall, the home of Shanti & New Monday. Look at the gorgeous unicorn statue and the colourful tree! The decorating is so pretty. This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!

I may be weird, but I love a dollarbie sale…

Jellyroll 1 L Marketplace Sale!

Hey Fab Free! I hope you’re having a fabulous week. I have been pretty productive for the last few days, so I decided to relax by getting cozy in bed with some great dollarbies I found by Jellyroll, which are on sale in their marketplace store right now.

Jellyroll’s 1 L Sale

Jellyroll closed their in-world store about a year ago this month, but the owner has graciously put up some of their creations for 1 L only in their marketplace store. Their creations are beautiful, so I naturally snatched up all the dollarbies I could find on there! You can get a range of products, including whole fatpacks of hair, clothing and shoes. I am not sure how long this sale will be on for, so buy these up before it’s over!

Pyjama Princess

The outfit I put together here is a combination of three items from Jellyroll: a pyjama nighty called “Sultry Nights PJs”, the “Princess Heels” and a cute shoulder-length haircut called “Alice”. All three items cost only 1 L each and they are all fatpacks which come with colour huds. The hair fatpacks in particular have huge customization, as reds, greyscales, blondes, brunettes and more huds are included.

I just love these PJs as they come with such witty slogans! This one says: “Me? Weird? Always.” How true. There’s a bunch of other funny and cute sayings on this PJ set, which makes it super fab!

Have fun, Fab free!

Stupid Cupid Cute


Nicer When I Like My Outfit

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the middle of the week than with some dollarbies from the Stupid Cupid Hunt! The Stupid Cupid Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a cupid’s arrow. For this post I hunted TSCH prizes at EscalateD, DeFient Unicorn, and Prism. Keep reading for all the info about each of these 1 linden prizes.

The Hair – This adorably messy up-do is the TSCH prize at EscalateD. It comes in 2 variations, each with a mirrored version also, and has 3 mini color change huds. A unique feature for this style is the added ability to color change both sides of the hair the same or differently.

HintYou can keep this love in a photograph but where to put, where to put…

The Barrettes – To go with adorable hair, you need equally adorable barrettes. These Valentine themed hair clips are 3 of the set of 7 barrettes that make up the TSCH prize at DeFient Unicorn. Each barrette is copy so you can wear multiples of the same one, or mix and match.

Hint – If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.

The DressPrism put out this sweet little dress as their TSCH prize. The key word here is little, watch out ladies, she’s short! That said, the dress is definitely cute on, and perfect for Valentine’s Day. It comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EBody, Slink (Hourlgass, Physique)

Hunt Nevermore

Nevermore
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday-funday! So I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been into the hunts happening around the grid lately. There are so many! Today I have some Nevermore hunt prizes I’m excited to share with you. The Nevermore hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so all the prizes are just 1 linden. As I am sure you guessed by the name of the hunt, many of the gifts are loosely Edgar Allen Poe or “The Raven” themed. The hunt item you’ll be searching for is a paper letter.

The Circlet – I’m a sucker for a pretty circlet. I think they should be an everyone kind of fashion accessory, and not just for witches and elves. Though I’ve been called one of those! hah. This particular moon and star dangle circlet is the 1L Nevermore hunt gift at Harambee. It comes in 3 color/metal versions and has resize scripts.

Hint – Search the inSanity shop.

The DressTrashed put out this sexy little dress as their Nevermore hunt prize. Like all the Nevermore hunt gifts, this one is just 1 linden. It comes in several mesh sizes, in the single purple fabric with black details version shown.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) Standard Mesh (s,L), eBody

Hint – A love letter left at table height for you to find at midnight

The Boots – Believe it or not these Spotlight boots are black! They have such a high shine to the texture that it gives them the almost silver metallic look shown in the photo. These sassy stiletto lace-up boots come in several sizes for mesh avatars. They are also Spotlight’s 1 linden Nevermore hunt prize.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Hint – Light a candle, or two, or three. 

The Furniture –  I kinda love this furniture set from Kitty Creations. It might even become a permanent setting in my own personal space. This full set including the cuddle bench, leather ottoman with drinks, rug (not shown), and birdcage with a raven are all part of the dollarbie Nevermore hunt gift from Kitty Creations.

Hint – Find a place to sail away and nevermore be seen.

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/04/2018 – Baci

Baci Exterior
Sweet merciful everything it’s the weekend! What a week! I’m happy you’re here Fab Free’rs, and clearly happy for the weekend. This week I get to share with you Baci. This sweet shop reminds me of those swanky boudoir boutique style shops. It is a ladies clothing store where you’ll find lots of feminine sexy dresses and lacy underthings. Baci is a small enough shop that it’s quite easy to navigate, but large enough that there’s plenty to look at. There are also quite a few dollarbies and gifts to be had, which of course we love!

Just as you enter Baci, you’ll see a couple of dollarbies to the right, along with two group gifts. These gifts, such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift, require a specific group tag. The dollarbies are just 1 linden each, no group needed. I even picked up the dollarbie Omega applier tan lines myself!  Also, you may recall the cute little Fab Free group gift dress by Baci from Nevi’s post “Dreaming of Yesterday.” To the left, there’s another dollarbie (it appears to be a rez day gift) that is also available to everyone.

If you follow the walkway to the right and go all the way, you’ll find the wall of Baci store group gifts. There are several dresses, and some pretty lingerie gifts. The Baci store group is just 1 linden to join at this time. You can get a quick glance at these gifts in the lower right photo above. Finally, there are several Baci group-only Lucky Letter boards directly across from the Baci store group gifts. My apologies, I didn’t get a photo of the Lucky Letter boards. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Sweetheart

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Jeweled and a[MUSE]ed

a[MUSE]ed

A little fantasy.

NSP florals and [MUSE] set out a great Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that had me thinking along the lines of fantasy and roleplay. It’s only 1L and a little hunting time for the iconic red T-shirt and you get the hair and jeweled hair piece pictured above. The two pieces are separate so you can wear the jeweled headpiece with any other hair that you have. As a bonus, there is an included hud to change the color of the jewels on the headpiece. The hair only comes in the one color and reminds me a bit of old fashioned wigs, but I liked it nonetheless. I thought it was fun!

Matching the pair.

I hadn’t been by Wicca’s Wardrobe in a while and was happy to pick up their latest group gift. The group is 99L to join, but they offer monthly group gifts and the gifts are always top quality. There is always a gift out for both the ladies and the gents. This month I was able to pick up the Belle Dress in Spring Flower.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
