The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

I just don’t want to go home right now

I don't want to go home right nowIt’s weird to think that FabFree and I are pretty much the same age; the blog is only like 2 months older. No wonder it feels like I’ve been reading FabFree my whole SLife. I probably have been! FabFree’s 15th birthday party rolls on, and I got all of the clothing (including shoes!) that I’m wearing today from the FabFree @ Fifteen event ! If you haven’t had a look at the tremendous list of free and discounted items here, than you are truly missing out. Luckily you’ve still got a couple of weeks to take it all in. I just loved how great these went together for a cute and casual look to wear around the grid. Here’s what I’m wearing, from top to bottom:

Top

The top is by Glitter and it’s free. Do I need to say more? Certainly not but that typically never stops me. It comes in a HUD of “strong colors” so like your dark greens and blues and reds. Such a casual, fun, and easy to wear style. Perfect over a perfect pair of jeans. Don’t worry, we’ll get to those next! Sizes:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Middle

Yes, the jeans. These are one of those great pairs to throw on when you need something to wear and you know they’ll look fabulous. They are 499L from rainnn for FabFree @ Fifteen and really just so versatile and well made. Included is a HUD full of denim colors and sizes for Legacy and Maitreya.

Bottom

Yes friends, we’ve reached the feet. My flip flops are by rainnn as well. It’s the stipes pack and are rainnn‘s 15L item for the event. I don’t think there is any way I could have possibly rounded out this outfit better than with some cute flip flips. The stripes pack includes 11 stripy patterns in a HUD and these sizes:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Slink
  • and an unrigged version

And that’s a wrap! I do love an outfit that pretty much puts itself together.

Dilettante or Not?

Shanti Cheeky Wow. Exile FLF 7-8-2022_001

It’s another Fabulous Friday readers! I get to play in SL all day because in addition to the heat wave the monsoon season has arrived. Not really monsoons but lots of thunderstorms; it just feels like a monsoon. In addition to my shopping errands this morning I did a bit of exploring and found a serene harbor in a sim named Midnight Oasis. I haven’t explored the entire place yet but what I did visit is stunning. Everywhere you turn there are magnificent Mediterranean vistas and many places that photographers will love. I highly recommend a visit.

Free Spirited

Cheeky Wow! started a new round on July 7th. Many of the booths have at least one item for $69L and several have free gifts. One of my long time favorite designers, Shanti Bohemian, has a booth there. My carefree top and skirt, the Poppy Bohemian outfit, is Shanti’s $69L offer at the event. Its the kind of outfit you want to wear when you feel like twirling around because you’ll look so darling. The lovely texture on it is very detailed.

Sizes

  • Bellezza Isis, Freya, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic Curvy, Fine

Baby Blue Ain’t Your Color

Says who? I mean I adore the Keith Urban song but who says I can’t have blue hair if I want it. Exile‘s Fifty Linden Friday offer solved that dilemma. Kate is a casual style with a dark to light gradient in 5 colors. The blue really compliments my outfit.

Another Score on Shoes!

Pure Poison offers this striking pair of shoes today for Fifty Linden Friday. Exquisite barely describes the Luisa Sandals! Decorated with two rows of delicate flowers the included hud is massive allowing you to change many different parts to match whatever you’re wearing.

A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Farm Girl

Farm Girl I

I have a quick post, Fab readers, all about the Hair Fair. As you know, I am a hair addict so this event is perfect for me!

Bring on the Hair Fair!

Hair Fair 2022 starts today! They have quite a few free gifts out this year, and all sales give partial donations to Wigs for Kids. It’s a great cause, and who doesn’t love hair?  The Hair Fair runs until July 10th.

Farmgirl II

I am showing the free gift from Exile at the event. The “Leena” hairstyle is one of my favourite finds from my outing! It’s a cute ponytail that reminded me of a farm girl. The beauty of this hairstyle is showcased in the back, which I’m showing off behind my room divider. This gift includes a huge colour hud that allows you to change the hairstyle to many different colours.

Enjoy all the free hair, FabFree!

Getting Swept Away

Getting Swept AwayHave you been to the discount area at Siss Boom? It’s enormous, I don’t even know what to call it. Discount room? Floor? Empire? Nomenclature aside, it’s really fabulous and brimming with clothes for between 25L and 50L per item. And it’s Siss Boom so you know they’re gonna be good. I spent a relaxing afternoon flitting around the sales arena, ohhing and ahhing, and one of the things that I came away with was this “dance dress.” It’s priced at just 25L per color and includes an assortment of fitmesh sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

And then, well, I’m me so I’m also showing off a new skin. Junho is the new June group gift from Seven Deadly Skins. The gift includes all the skin tones in two versions, with and without eyebrows. One of the great things about 7DS is that the skins come as a single full BOM which includes both the head and the body. So no making sure you’ve got the correct body shade to match, no neck seams, just wear the BOM and you’re done. Easy peasy, lemon squeezey.
