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!

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time…

So long ago, Certain place, Certain time...

Hey Fab Fam, I know it’s another Monday but I hope it’s a good one for you. My Monday hasn’t been bad at all because I popped over to the 10th Anniversary round of Cosmopolitan. And what made it so good, you may ask.  All the free anniversary gifts set out for us! Most every Designer has set out a lovely little free gift to celebrate. In fact, I was able to put together this entire outfit, from head to toe with nothing but free gifts!

First is this lovely dress. This is ‘Candra – gris’ from Avale and just look at the way it drapes and flows! The color is a deep navy (maybe) but comes across more as a dusty black. But “gris” does mean “gray” so… There is a HUD to change up the color but it only changes the top not the skirt. Just my personal preference but I liked the matching pieces best.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Kalhene – Erika
  • Kupra – Original
  • Legacy
  • Maitrya
  • SLink – Hourglass

My shoes are the Nives Sandals from G & D. You get a full fatpack with these cuties! So it was easy to match them to my new dress. I just love it when that happens.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Even my new hair style is a free gift! This is the ‘Coral’ style from eXxEsS. You get the full fat pack of colors here too. I love the swoopy bangs and the little buns. Such a playful yet sophisticated style.

And last but not least is my demur pose from LW Poses. The ‘Anniversary Gift’ pose comes with a pose ball and they animation as well as the pretty flowers to hold.

Cosmopolitan has got us covered for gifts! And this is just part 1 of a 2 part celebration! I see loads more gifts in our future!

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!

It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

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

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Headband – ~*HopScotch*~* Tree-Headband – Free Subscriber Gift

Hello FabFree,

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone’s weekend has been going well. How about some amazing freebies and a dollarbie for today’s post! Let’s start with the top, this is a FabFree group gift, by RipRock. The in-world Fab Free group is free to join, just remember to wear your group tag, when retrieving your gift! This little fishnet tube top, is a cute and sexy find. You can wear it, with a cover-up, as a top or under another top as extra layers, if the meshes work well together of course. I personally love basic top like this one from RipRock, you can do so many things with them, heck this one could even be a bikini top, just add some bikini bottoms or some shorts and you;re ready for the beach. The results are endless and it’s free!

RipRock- Moa Fishnet Top Sizing:

I love these suspender pants, I found on the Marletplace and they are only $1L! I used to wear my suspenders like this in real life, so when I saw these I was excited! The pants are a dollarbie item on the Marketplace, by a store called Make It! The Handmade Revolution. Don’t forget they are only $1L, got to love the cheap Marketplace finds!

Last, but not least, I have a new free group gift from Breathe! The store has recently moved, so be sure to get your new landmark! The Breathe in-world group is currently free to join, so hurry over and grab some shoes! These Choko Heels are a full fatpack, which is even more of a bonus!
