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!

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

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

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

Day Off

Fabfree Post: Day off

Day off for Alice

That sneaky little girl Alice conned me into painting some roses, once I agreed to take her paintbrush, a rabbit appeared quickly rushing her to do something by whispering in her ear.  I watched her pop something into her mouth and she quickly shrank to the tiniest little girl I’ve ever seen! I realized I may have picked the short stick on this one…

INKer  Esareme Girl Tattoo has a few tattoos up for L$10 and the one I’m wearing has a vintage pinup girl vibe going on. The date the promotional price is unclear so I would go take a look at them as soon as possible to snag them all! The item comes with Dark, Medium, and Light options so you can get a great mix of how new or old you want the tattoo to look!

Options for Esareme Girl Tattoo

  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • BOM

Popcorn has a free gift out at Down the Rabit Hole which happens to be this cute shirt I’m wearing! Featuring the event name on it along with some iconic silhouettes that give you no other option but to think of Alice and her Wonderland Adventures! You will have a hard time not being late after you visit the event! This is my favorite gift from the entire event so far, comment below what yours is!!

Popcorn’s Mel Top Fits:

  • Alice
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Down the Rabit Hole Event is open until July 21st so be sure to stop by, get the (Free) Evil Bunny Hunts Group and snag the free gift!

Outside of the little shop area at Analog Dog on the beach, there is a bubble, there you will find you can purchase the bubble for L$0 and get the inclosed free hair with no group needed! This is a fantastic find for your wigging out needs! I opted for the Leela Dark Red hair to showcase a deeper color palette for this picture. There are however other colors you for you chose from with their free gifts!

#TakeaSelfie

#TakeaSelfie

Helllooo Everybody!! I gotta say I have been thoroughly enjoying all the tropical locations Second Life has to offer. I can’t help but smile when enjoying all the amazing scenery. It’s also perfect for snapping selfies, and before anyone comes at me for being vain I think selfies are all in good fun. I like the idea of celebrating feeling good about yourself. So take some selfies! haha That said, I definitely enjoy this bright colorful look. The top and shorts are a Pride themed group gift at Seniha, while my tattoos, sunglasses, and bubble tea are all free gifts at ACCESS.

Seniha

My cropped top and short shorts are a recent group gift at Seniha in honor of Pride month. The Seniha group is free to join at this time and there are multiple group gifts available. This particular gift includes the top and shorts in several sizes, and a color/texture change hud for the top The hud includes 25+ solid colors for the tee with rainbow/love themed graphics to choose from. The shorts have the rainbow paint smear in the front, and a cute rainbow peace sign on the back pocket.

HXNOR

It’s hot out there and sunglasses are one accessory I can’t get enough of. These bold bright red “Superior” shades are the free ACCESS group gift by HXNOR. The gift requires the free to join ACCESS event group tag. These glasses also happen to be unisex and have resize scripts for easy fitting.

Dappa

Dappa put out these cool mandala-like sleeve tattoos as their free gift at ACCESS. This detailed tattoo spans from shoulder to fingertip is also unisex. It comes in several appliers as well as classic/BOM layers in a faded and fresh look.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Signature, Slink, Omega

Lastly, this yummy bubble taro bubble tea is courtesy of Cubic Cherry. It is their free gift at ACCESS. It comes with a left and a right held version, a mouth attachment, and a display version.

Need Caffeine

Need Caffeine

There are days when an extra cup of coffee or two first thing in the morning, and a mid-day pick-me-up are in order to keep me going. So when I saw this top by ZFG it made me giggle, and I knew at least some of you would relate. lol To help fend off a minor case of the Mondays I went over to the 35L Sales Event (thanks to a suggestion from Blue) and picked up quite a few of the free group gifts available, including this top. All the gifts require the 35L Sunday VIP group which is free to join.

Along with the top from ZFG I picked up this cute hairstyle from C.K., and this pretty necklace by Venge. Keep reading for more information about each of these free gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

ZFG

This shirt by ZFG is the definition of a loose-fitting comfy casual top. It’s the kind you wear around the house, or maybe with a cute sports bra to the gym. It comes in the color shown and reads “Caffeine is the Foundation of My Food Pyramid.” This gift is free at the 35L Sales Event, just wear the free group tag and click the black and red giftbox.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus)

C.K.

This high ponytail hairstyle is also a free gift at the 35L Sales Event. It’s the quintessential messy but cute up-do. It also comes with a pretty flower crown that I chose not to wear, and a color change hud with a broad range of blond, brunette, and red hair colors.

Venge

Also, I couldn’t resist the necklace from Venge. This free gift includes 3 color/texture change huds to change the chain with a choice of copper, gold, or silver. Each of the 3 huds then has a choice of 6 colors for the crystal. Just like all the gifts at the 35L Sales Event, this one is free with the event group tag.

Popsicle


Popsicle

Sometimes being an adult isn’t so bad, especially when it means I can eat popsicles in bed if I want to. Even better, here in Second Life I can eat popsicles in bed with no fear of having to do laundry later! As if this moment couldn’t get better, I’m here to tell you that much of what I have on, and the yummy strawberry popsicle is free. Keep reading for all the info or scroll on down for the credits and links. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Maai

The pretty blue and pink bra and panty set is a free group gift at Maai. The Maai store group is also free to join. This pretty set comes in the color shown and is sized for Maitreya Lara.

Harajuku Event Gifts

Pink Unicorn – The bright strawberry popsicle is the free Harajuku event gift by Pink Unicorn. This hold-able has a bento pose that should work with most ao’s and static poses (just add the popsicle last). You can pick your copy up for free at the Pink Unicorn booth at Harajuku.

Kotte – The vine-like leaf ring by Kotte is another of the many free gifts at Harajuku. It comes in gold, and silver, with right and left hand options fit for Maitreya hands only.

Cute*icles – The minty blue manicure I have on is the free Harajuku gift by Cute*icles. These pretty mesh nails come fit for Maitreya and Slink bento hands.

Vegas Tattoo – Finally, the unisex Asian inspired upper body tattoo by Vegas Tattoo I’m showing is also free at Harajuku. It comes in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Signature, Omega, Belleza, and Altamura bodies.

P.S. Aline recently showed off some of the Harajuku freebies in her post “Play the Game.”

Here’s What I Have On:

Story of My Life


Awkward

Hey There Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. I feel like the sign board Pru is holding says what could be the title to Pru’s autobiography. lol Really, this sign board by Le Poppycock with the cheeky saying is one of many free gifts at The Liaison Collaborative. The current round of TLC is an anniversary round so there are several gifts either at the vendor booths or in the center of the event on little carts. In addition to this gift by Le Poppycock, Pru is wearing the free TLC gift by Canimal. Both gifts require the free-to-join TLC group tag.

The Sign Board – This free gift at TLC by Le Poppycock comes with the pose needed to hold this fun prop. The board itself has several sayings, some a bit cheeky like this one, and some not. It’s great for photos, and I would even use it as décor.

The Romper – Also a free gift at TLC, this romper by Canimal is a Maitreya fit (I believe). It comes on it’s own, unboxed. To get your copy of this gift and all the others, be sure to join the Liaison Collaborative group and wear the tag before clicking the gift boxes.

Here are the details:

Take Your Demon to the Beach

Beach Imp
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been a few days since my last post, and I am happy to finally get some much needed down time.  As part of said down time, we have all heard of “Take Your Daughter to Work Day”, well I am advocating “Take Your Favorite Demon to the Beach Day” or the pool. The pool will work too. Demons are optional, but if they are anything like Pru, they are worth the effort! That said, I came across a couple of FREE group gifts at the XXX Event that are “Beach Day” worthy. On a little side note, please keep in mind that as the name would suggest this is an Adult themed event.

The Swimsuit – The unique anchor print swimsuit Pru is wearing is a FREE XXX Event group gift by Adri’s King. The XXX Event group is FREE to join, and several vendors have gifts out this round. The Adri’s King swimsuit gift comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, head over to the XXX Event, join the group and click the gift waiting for you at the Adri’s King booth.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Collar – The cute “kitty” style collar Pru has on is the XXX Event gift by NYNE. This FREE gift comes with 8 color options in a color change hud. This gift (like all the gifts at the XXX Event) will require the XXX Event group tag. As I mentioned before the group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!
