FabFree at Fifteen is HERE!

 

Wow, FabFree!  It’s finally happening and we’re soooooooo excited!  We’re turning fifteen and it’s totally time to celebrate.  We’ve got a massive shopping event set up for you all, which has so many awesome goodies.  You’ll find 15L specials in every store, an item of the designer’s choosing, PLUS a free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group.  Yaaas!

FabFree has been the first stop for freebie and deal hunters since 2007, and it’s been a labour of love the entire time.  FabFree bloggers and organizers do not get paid for their service, which is often a lot of work.  Please take a moment to thank the bloggers when you get a chance, because they work SO HARD and ask for nothing in return.  We do this for YOU!

Are you ready to shop ’til you drop?  You can find all the items on the FabFree at Fifteen page HERE.

We hope you enjoy, and thank you all SO MUCH for your support over the last 15 years.

The Upside Down

Hey gang,

As everyone dons their Easter best, here is me in all my dark INFP-ish-ness lost someplace looking for the Upside Down.  Now if you have ever watched Stranger Things, you know that the Upside Down is much more Halloween-ish and not at all Easter-ish.  You’ll find no fluffy bunnies here.

However!

In second life you can find an event called The Upside Down and at that event you can find many little 10L goodies.  Like this metallic blue hoodie from Indigenous (you simply cannot go exploring without your best metallic blue hoodie!), and this backdrop from Something New.  Both items are 10L and there is no group required.  The hoodie comes with a matching top and  fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Curvy
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Hourglass

This event continues until the 30th of April, so you do have time, but why wait, go enjoy yourself!  It’s a fun theme.

Oh and Happy Easter and Passover y’all!  Feel free to send me some Cadbury Creme Eggs if you are feeling generous.  😉

Let Me Take You Down….

Hello loverly faboos!

Spring is coming my darlings!  It really, truly is!  I cannot emphasize how *glad* I am that warm weather is beginning to creep in on us.  With the Ides of March past and St Patty celebrations happening everywhere, even the fashions are shouting spring!  (if er, clothing could talk, that is!) (perhaps its best clothing can not talk… o.0)

I found this stunning little dress at the TWE12VE Event, it is a 12L item from Emerald Couture, who blesses us with lovely creations in every season.  I knew I needed this dress the moment I saw it.  And for 12L, well as I like to say, you sure can’t beat that with a stick! This adorable dress fits:

  • Classic
  • Fit
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink & Hourglass
  • Venus

It also comes with sure cute matching shoes, not shown in the photo.

Now, it’s not just the clothing bursting out spring, but the poses as well.  Amitie has more of their fabulous poses for you at the Arcade, all Boho Spring inspired (this one is called Strawberry Fields) – which is right up my alley!  Each pose is only 50L a play and they are one cuter than the other!

The Untold Secrets of Sheep

Snapshot_025

Hey gang!

Picture it, second life, 2022, an Irish girl dressed all in green tells her deepest, darkest secrets to a sheep named Shamrock, who vows to keep them for all eternity.

But I Digress!

I had an absolutely splendid time doing the Fab Free St Pattys Hunt (second annual!  woohoo!), and then popping over to the very festive and fun St. Patrick’s Market & Treasure Hunt Event 2022!  Not only is there a hunt (look for the little treasure chests) which is free and no group required, but there is low priced shopping to be had!  Take Mr. Shamrock the sheep here, you can bring him home (and I did!) for only 25L!  I couldn’t resist his handsome face and precious hat (not to mention his uncanny ability to keep secrets!).

Now about that Fab Free Hunt!

I scooped up this stunning little number of a dress at Entice, who has a handful of items to find, all cuter than the next (more cute?).  The entire key is below and all items are free.  This dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy

Everything you can grab at Entice in the hunt is here:

Cre also blogged them here.

All the landmarks and info for the hunt can be found here and you can pick up a hunt HUD for free at our Headquarters.

Lastly, everyone has been stalking the freebies over at Tram, and I am no exception.  My hair in this ensemble is indeed free(no group required!) and I loved the cute retro 60’s look of it!  But you can see more styles shown by Caroline here, here and here!

Now, until next time, may the luck of the Irish be always with ye!

Decorate It With Hearts

Hey, FabFree! Valentine’s day is coming up so soon and I am getting in the mood by decorating my house with heart-pattered furniture and heart-shaped balloons.

There’s only a couple of days left to hit the Valentine Shop and Hop. I was so impressed with the gifts this round! I am showing a few fabulous gifts from the event including:

  • This great chair with pillows is free at the booth from Famous.

Flying Monkeys and Cute Fall Outfits

coming soon

Hey gang!

Both real life and second life feel like they are pulling me in ten directions each. Literally, I feel like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Remember when the flying monkeys pulled him apart and threw him all over the place? Well right now both lives are my flying monkeys. Anyone got any flying monkey spray handy? (and how many times can I say flying monkeys in one post, eh?)

Whimsical Delights

At least I snuck in a little bit of time to wander the magical pathways of the Secret Garden Event. Alas my friends, I spent far more than was wise, but there were so so many whimsical delights waving to me from those Nextup machines. Saying “I’m next, look how wonderful I am, you know you must bring me home!” Well, who am I to argue?

So I put on this cute outfit from the MOoH! nextup and headed out for a walk. I’ve got the key for you below so you can see the entire batch of goodies. I wanted to wear the knee socks but for the life of me I could not figure out my layers in my mesh body. Sometimes I can get them to work and sometimes, well, let’s just say it ain’t pretty. So my apologies to Dalraida over at MOoH!

This outfit fits maitreya only but it comes with everything, even the hat (you have to get each item in the machine though and mix and match them). I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and since I am homeless at the moment, I’ve been traveling around in this and had several compliments as well as people asking me where I got the outfit.  It’s 50L per sale and there’s also a copy/mod fatpack at a discount.

More soon gang!  Hope you are staying toasty warm where ever in the world you are!

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Just Do It!

gym_009

Hey gang,

Just a quickie today, something a little out of the ordinary for you!

It’s getting to be that time of year when its cooler out so we eat more, and there are holidays, so we eat more, and the holidays make us feel certain ways so maybe we eat and drink more….

So I thought, what I need is a little workout area of my own!  Maybe if Arielle is working out, it will inspire me to workout too (I’m not holding my breath!  lol)

Either way I found these adorable items at Dench Designs.  There is an exercise mat (that comes with barbells to work out with!  They attach automatically!) for only 50L, and a treadmill for only 40L!  Both are low prim too so they can be used even if you are low on prims!

As bloggers we need our bodies to look fab (no pun intended!) and so there is no slacking off when we have to keep toned to showcase all sorts of clothing for our valued readers!

gym_022

You got this gang!

More from me soon!  (probably sooner than you would like! *winks*) (I have no idea what that means either and I wrote it!  Welcome to my brain, its a dark and scary place sometimes!)
