Last Chance To Visit FabFree Headquarters!

FabFree HQ Gift Gallery 10/25
As mentioned in previous posts, our FabFree Headquarters inworld location will be coming to a close on Saturday, October 31st. Be sure to take advantage of these last few days and stop by for a visit!  The walls of The Gift Gallery are still stuffed with absolutely free gifts, donated by some very talented designers, but they will all be gone at the end of the month.

The FabFree Team would like to take this opportunity to thank Floatie Hock for generously sponsoring the land for our FabFree inworld location to remain open since June of 2009.  We would also like to show our appreciation to Grace Selene, the The Wash‘s Manager for being so accommodating and helpful during our lengthy stay.

Big hugs and many thanks goes to the hundreds of kind designers that have donated gifts through Fabulously Free in SL over the years.  Your part in FabFree will not be forgotten.

Just for a little trip down memory lane…  Here is a photo of the original retro station build on The Wash Sim (designed and donated by Floatie Hock – 2011):

FFHQ History:

Fabulously Free in Second Life officially opened it’s first inworld Headquarters (HQ) on January 21, 2008 on the Talisman sim.

In December 2008 FabFree moved to MC East River,  a waterfront location that was generously donated by Scotti Rhodes. We kept the beachy colours and theme in our new home.

June of 2009 was another move for Fabfree HQ as we’ve continued to grow to be the best freebie hotspot in Second Life; this time to the funky, retro Car Wash sim owned by Floatie Hock.  The FabFree HQ is also build and sponsored by Floatie Hock.

FabFree Relocated for its final home on The Wash sim sponsored once again by our friend, Floatie Hock.  The amazing build and land was donated to the Fabulously Free in SL group in February 2011.

In April of 2014, FabFree HQ was renovated, remaining on The Wash sim with the help of Xiulan Caldwell, allowing for the addition of a park like setting and a gacha garden for events.

Who says Halloween can’t be about flowers?

Hello again my FabFree readers! Did you miss me last week? I missed you, but don’t worry, I’m going to make up for my lack of a post last week with a super-duper, wicked-awesome, goodie-filled post today! Ok, maybe I overdid it with the ‘super-duper’, and ‘wicked-awesome’, but I do have a lot of goodies to show off. So let me get right into it.

purple_004I wanted to put together a look that would work for a more formal Halloween party, and I started with my shoes. These little beauties, called Sutra II, are the free October Facebook gift from Alaskametro. I was so excited to see the colour they came in, as I just love purple as a Halloween colour. What’s even better, they come with a HUD that lets you choose between 3 different shades of purple. I am wearing the version for SLink high feet, but there are also The Mesh Project, Maitreya, and Belezza versions, all in their prospective high versions. In case you have not ever taken advantage of the Alaskametro Facebook gifts, or just don’t remember what to do, let me tell you. You need to head over to the Alaskametro Facebook page, HERE (like it if you haven’t already), and click on the link for special promotions. The picture there will tell you the code you need to know. Then, inworld, head over to the Alaskametro store, and walk over to the gift poster. Say the code you got from the Facebook page, on channel 33, exactly as written (meaning in capital letters). So your chat bar should show /33 CODEHERE, with CODEHERE not being the actual code, of course. Make sense? Trust me, these shoes are worth the effort! You have until the end of the month to grab them up. purple_001

Next up, my gorgeous dress. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple from Tiffany Designs, and it is their current Womenstuff group gift located at the ‘stuff Lounge. As stated in the name, this is a mesh dress, in all the standard sizes. Sure, looking at the lovely flowery print, with the sweet flower at the waist, one does not immediately say ‘Hey, that’s a great dress for Halloween!’, but the colour worked so nicely with my shoes, and of course the devil is in all the little added details for putting together a great costume. *grins* All you need to do to get this free gift, is join the Womenstuff group, for a small L$50 fee that is totally worth it for this dress alone, not to mention the multitudes of other gifts available.

purple_006OK, no formal party look is complete without some great jewelry. I picked up this statement making Bohemian Rhapsody necklace and earrings set at our very own FabFree Headquarters, and it is a free gift from D.D.M. Designs. These big bold pieces are the perfect complement to the simple lines of my dress and shoes, and it’s hard to beat free! Just a warning, there are actually 2 left earrings in this set, and no right earring. I have alerted the creator, but it is a simple fix by changing the attach point of one earring to the right ear, and then doing a few hocus pocus adjustments to get it sitting correctly.purple_003

OK, now for the piece that made my stunning formal look into a stunning masquerade formal look…my fabulous floral eye patch from the Bird Next Door Shop on the Marketplace.  To be honest, when I decided that I needed something for my face, I went looking for the typical, pretty, delicate mask look, and believe me, there are lots of great ones to choose from. However, in my search on the Marketplace, this flower eye patch came up, and for only L$23. It was so different from everything else, and at such an affordable price, I thought I’d give it a try. Obviously…it was a winner! And, even though the listing says it is no mod, it is actually the resize script that is no mod, so you can adjust each individual piece to your heart’s content. I tinted a few of the glowy flexi pieces the same purple as the flowers to better match my dress.

purple_002

Phew…ok…I think I am done. This was a long post. I think I am going to go see if Mr. Skeleton would like to dance. He looks like he may have been waiting around for quite a while. LOL. Hope you all have a lovely week, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN!

Crazy, Sexy, Cool….or Swirly, Edgy, Blue…either works for me.

swirlyblue1Happy, happy Thursday everyone! Oh boy, do I have some great stuff to show you today, I could hardly contain myself waiting for Thursday to roll around! So, no chit-chat, no nothing, I’m getting right into it 🙂

swirlyblue3

My super gorgeous dress was the start of my outfit. I was over at our very own FabFree HQ, taking a look at all the generous gifts put out there, and I spotted the More Than Ever dress from Blue Composure and Ruckus. I had to have it. I mean look at that blue!! It is mesh, with all the standard sizes. Best part, other than that lovely blue colour, the funky swirly pattern, or the little bit of hardness from the studs around the neckline – t’s free for everyone! Yayyy. We do try to rotate the gifts that are out, so just to be on the safe side, don’t take too long to run over and get it, as it could be gone before you know.

swirlyblue4

Next addition were my shoes. I knew I wanted something a little edgy, to kind of go along with those cute studs around the neckline of my dress, and as luck would have it, Essenz sent out a notice that very day I was looking, about a new group gift. The Lagos shoes, for SLink High, or Maitreya feet, are that perfect combination of sexy and edgy, and were perfect! They are free for group members, but the group is L$350 to join. Let me tell you though, it’s worth it, just for these shoes alone, and they are very generous with frequent gifts. I am so in love with the fringe around the ankles!!

swirlyblue5

The last thing to mention about my look, is my super cool hair. I’m sure you are all aware that it is Hair Fair time, and it’s their 10th anniversary to boot. Because of this, there are soo many gifts from the participating designers, it is a freebie lovers heaven. If you can get in of course, LOL. My fun ponitail is the gift that you get from enVogue. It comes in 2 brown ombre’s, with a pack of hairbases in every shade imaginable. It is rigged mesh, so no adjusting, but it fit me perfectly, especially once I added the hairbase. This gift is free for everyone, just look for the giant 10. Here is the direct slurl for enVogue @ Hair Fair, however, they have fixed landing points in place, so if you manage to get into the sim, follow the arrow.

swirlyblue2

OK, so this is not part of my outfit, but worth telling you about all the same. Elephante poses is celebrating their 3rd anniversary, and as a thank you to all the customers, there are some gifties to be had! This cute set of 3 poses that I am showing off is the subscribo gift, called Don’t Let Me Down. All you need to do is hit the subscribo board at the landing point, and they are all yours, for free! While I am not showing them off, there is also a new pose pack for group members, which is L$350 to join. For all you Harry Potter lovers, or just plain old magic lovers, there is a special edition purple wand that is a great pose prop. Oh, and if you needed a pose to use it, well, all pose packs, except for collab’s, gacha’s, and new releases are 50% off. This celebration only lasts until the 17th though, so if you like what I’m telling you, you better get your booties over there 🙂

Whew! I think I got it all! I had to double-check to make sure. So many goodies, so little time, am I right? LOL. Alright you lovely readers, it is time to leave you again, but don’t worry, I’ll be back the same time next week, with more great stuff to show off. Until then, TTFN!

Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit 🙂

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack 🙂

strawberry lemonade3

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

strawberry lemonade2

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

strawberry lemonade4

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around 🙂 I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!
