Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

Besties Pool Party

Besties Pool Party

I would like to introduce you to one of my best friends ever, Swara. We’ve been great friends in SL for a few years now and she is my #1 shopping and chatting buddie. The other day Swara and I decided to have a besties pool party! What a great way to start the summer season. We also found some cute freebies to share with you all that will kick off the summer just right. 

Goodies @ Miix

The first thing I want to talk about is a great freebie available at the Miix event right now. Furtacor usually blesses us with wonderful gifts at this event every month, and they have done it again. This time, the free group gift designed for women contains holdable watermelon drinks, a Bakes-on-Mesh (BOM) bathing suit, and a purse. Swara and I decided to keep the purses away from the pool so our precious belongings wouldn’t get wreaked. We both decided to sip on those thirst-quenching watermelon coolers while we sunbathed in the pool! Swara is wearing the cute BOM swimsuit included in the package.  

 The Miix event ends on June 20th, so make sure you grab up the free gifts before they’re gone. They even have some free Spongebob Squarepants swimming trunks for men out for free!

WATERMELON -  GIFT MIIX EVENT

 

My Pool Gear!

  • The bikini I picked for our party is from Ari-Pari, and it’s a 1 L hunt prize on the Summer Lovin’ Hunt 5. The hint for the prize is, You’ll find me near a hanging jade… not the gem! The ‘kini comes in 10 colours you can change via a HUD and it is sized for Legacy, Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass. 
  • I am also wearing several makeup dollarbies from Bellucci. My eyeshadow comes from their pride makeup set and the lipstick comes from the pack of Hidden Hills lipsticks. These makeups are appliers that work on Lelutka Evolution heads only, and they cost 1 Linden each.

Swara’s Stylin’

I must admit that Swara is rocking it in this look! In addition to rocking that sexy swimsuit, her style includes the following freebies:

  • A couple free group gifts from Spookshow, including the collar and earrings, which are both pride-themed gifts! The Spookshow group is currently free to join. 
  • Her adorable little bracelet is a free gift at Marked. They also have a free pride necklace gift out and several other free group gifts. Most of their gifts are accessories designed for male avatars, but some are unisex.

Those Floaties

I must not forget to mention the adorable pool floaties featured in our pool party! These cute little floaties of narwhals and flamingos come from the pool fun gacha at MOoH!. You can play it at the mainstore and it is adorable. All the items in this gacha are perfect for the summer season and your next pool party! The Pool Fun Gacha at MOoH! costs 50L per pull to play.

A Subject Self-Defined

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I love this backdrop. There’s something about it that screams “contemporary art” which I love. Plus, it’s such an interesting statement! “A subject self-defined”- what does that even mean? Anyways… it’s time to step aside from my philosophical ramblings for the night, as I have a few great freebies to share so let’s get to the details.

Lemonade, please?

If all the pretentiousness of this talk about philosophy and the art world is making you thirsty, make sure you grab this cute pose and lemonade from micamee. It’s called “lemonade potion” and it’s a free group gift. I LOVE this item.

More Scandal

A lot from Scandalize has been featured on the blog lately, and I have yet another goodie to share from this beloved designer. These sneakers/runners are free fatpack for members of the free SL Scandals & News Group. It comes with a hud that allows you to change the textures and colours of the bows, laces, soles and body of the shoe allowing for endless customization!

Sizes:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

The Body Art 4 Hunt

Finally, I have a lovely hunt gift to share with you that is on the Body Art 4 Hunt. These are the stained glass nails by Ari-Pari and I’m simply in love with these nails. I am so happy with the recent nail creations by Ari-Pari. They are just perfectly made and this new set is bedazzling! These nails are only 1 L on the hunt and they work perfectly on my Belleza Freya body.

Sizes:

  • Omega
  • Slink

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!

My Happy Place

Your Happy PlaceHappy Saturday! I have a great gift to share with you from Dench Designs, as well as some info about other freebies and promotions going on at their store right now. 

Your Happy Place

If you need a sweet, small, and compact place to quarantine in-world, this cozy caravan by Dench Designs is the perfect solution, and it is a free group gift. It includes a kitchen, tv, and furniture with great animations included. I decided to spend some alone time and decompress in here, with a bottle of wine of course, which is one of the many accessories included with the caravan. You can even hang out with friends in this little caravan if you want to. After all, the laws of social distancing don’t need to apply to SL! This is an excellent gift!

More Freebies at Dench 

Make sure you also grab the free Easter gift in the notices of the Dench Designs group and all of their free group gifts available at their in-world store! There is also a free fireplace gift you can receive in exchange for filling out a suggestions survey near the entrance of the store, a free stay at home gift (a green chair and end-table), a free potted daisy plant and lamp you can receive for answering a question in nearby chat at their front desk about how you found the store ,a free toilet roll throne, and free Lucky Chair and MM board games to participate in around the store. We can certainly all agree that Amanda Dench is a VERY generous designer!

Have a wonderful day, Fab Free!

Everything I am wearing are pieces of the hunt from Beautiful Dirty Rich at the The Bunny Hop Hunt. The Omega and BOM Fishnets are free, but the boots, jacket and top each have a small hunt fee between 10 and 25 linden each. I just adore this outfit! It comes with a colour and pattern change hud for each item and it’s just adorable overall.

*B.D.R.* Margarita - Hunt Key

…And it’s time to drink again

There’s nothing like drinking, alcohol and cocktails during a quarantine, and the Easter holiday weekend is just another excuse to get sauced! This free egg is part of the hunt, and it double functions as a wearable margarita drink. It comes with a colour change HUD with many patterns. It’s time to drink in style!

You have until April 14th (tomorrow) to grab this set and these two freebies at The Bunny Hop Hunt!

Happy Easter, Fab Free!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go AwayRain Rain Go Away…

This was the face I made as I looked out my kitchen window and noticed there was a soft but steady rain falling outside. I had plans to work in the garden today, but all I could do is watch the two flats of flowers get drenched. Fruit infused water in hand, I made the best of it anyway. Truthfully I generally enjoy rainy weather. It’s just that I had planned on sunshine today. Either way, it was nothing a little online bargain hunting couldn’t fix.

Speaking of fruit infused water, the drink in Pru’s hand is a current FREE group gift at Knot & Co. These Summertime Drinks come in Strawberry (shown), Pineapple, Cucumber, and Lemon. Each flavor has a wearable version and a version to rez.

There are two additional FREE group gifts available at Knot & Co. The minimal but pretty bracelets, and this pastel nail polish set. The bracelets come in a set of 2 for each wrist and can be manually resized. You can wear them together or individually. There’s also a color change hud in the package that will let you choose between 15 colors for the bands, and 7 metallic shades for the triangles.

The FREE group gift mani/pedi gift set at Knot & Co. lets you choose between a few pastel yellow or blue options, or you can choose the mixed option to achieve the look you see on Pru’s nails. Each hud will allow you to paint both fingernails and toenails.

Huds included: Slink, Maitreya, Omega

Come Again Another Day…Come Again Another Day

During my afternoon of bargain hunting rather than gardening, I also picked up the June group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. I’m glad I did too. I’ve always been a sucker for red lips and the June group aptly named Apple has very pretty red lips and some lovely winged eyeliner. While the gift is FREE to group members, the 7 Deadly Skins group does have a one time join fee of 225 lindens. This month’s group gift, Apple, is an omega applier only that comes in 2 tones (pineapple, and oak). The appliers do work for Omega compatible bodies and heads.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
