Freebies & Cheapies Oh My!

Nilsy Weekend Gift 9/18/21

I love the Bayou country of Louisiana; it’s where I was raised. So peaceful and a slower pace of life. Most of Bayou country is in the migratory path of numerous species of birds. Our egrets, like those in the picture, live there year round.

Another great gift from Nilsy!

Most every weekend Nilsy puts out a free dress or outfit. You can subscribe to get notecards with all the deals. Or you can join the store group for free!

This weekend’s gift, Leopard Print top & jeans, is a cozy fall outfit with a cropped sweater and very comfy jeans. You just can’t go wrong with this winning combo. Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Mesh for Classic Body w/alpha
  • Fitmesh
  • Tmp
  • Ocacin
  • Belleza,Freya,Isis,Venus
  • Slink Hourglass,Physique
  • Ebody
  • Tonic Curvy,Tonic Fine

The Hair!

I picked up this gorgeous hair from Fabia for only $50L. It’s one of the many items offered for the #Energy Weekend. Named Joan, you can choose from several color huds and the package also has a styling hud. Of course, I chose red : )

Last, but certainly not least I found a plethora of fall decor items at La Galleria. Each season Pamela Galli, owner/creator, sets out free items. One caveat, you must have payment info on file.

Wandering Wonderland

coming soon

B2K Design is a new to me store, but I am so glad I discovered it!  Not only do they have some super cute clothes, but they have a wall of retirement outfits for 50L each!  I picked up this verrrryyyyyy sweet little dress there.  It’s so cute and I want to send y’all shopping for it and the other 50L goodies so let’s not dilly, shall we?

This dress and the other items as I said are only 50L each on the retirement wall, and there is no group needed to get the discount, anyone can buy them.  This dress fits:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD that gives you a choice of 6 lovely textures, I absolutely adored this Sakura one.  When I wore it I just had to find someplace whimsical to photograph it!

I paired it up with a very unique and pretty eyeliner I got at Ramilla.  It is a free group gift and that group is free to join.

Happy weekend all!

Here Kitty, Kitty – Meow

Nerido Meow Overall Sat Sale 8/21/2021

I confess to being a cat lover. I grew up with many cats around and have a silly kitty these days. Like Aline, I am a lover of anything cat. My blanket covered kitty, Romper, (he wanted to keep napping) has to nap with me.

Meow, Meow

When I saw Nerido‘s offer for The Saturday Sale I had to scramble over to scoop it up! The Meow Overall is on sale for $75/color; there are a number of colors to choose from. For me, it’s usually pink. These overalls have a kitty face print on the bib, white paw prints on the right leg, and straps/belt with the word Meow & hearts. Great way to show kitty love!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Today’s hairstyle, Vita, is a gacha prize at Fabia. The gachas are set at $25/pull. Get em while they’re hot; it’s a great way to stock up on hair.

Feeling meowy today I also added these cute kitty ears headband I picked up as a gift from [t2p] a couple of weeks ago. It is sold in the store for $99 L – just in case you’re in the mood for more cat!

Going to take a cat nap…

Watercolor Floral

Watercolor Floral

Hey Fab Crew! I hope this Wednesday is treating you just right. Mine has been interesting. I’ve been running around this big ‘ol Grid and collecting a ton of free gifts and goodies today. Who says you can’t look great for free on Second Life? Not me and I hope not you guys either. Sometimes you just have to look in interesting places.

Like today… I finally went to check out a Designer who I know has a long presence on the Grid but I simply hadn’t gone to see. I so glad I did! Le’La is not an unknown name here on FabFree and I feel like I’ll be going to visit more often after today. The store is full of great designs, a very generous Group and tons of other groups gifts! As well as a bunch of lucky boards and Midnight manias. But I found this sweet little dress tucked away in a corner of the gift area. The “Pia” dress was a gift for the now defunct ‘Stay At Home’ group. But Le’La has generously left it out and available for everyone for free. This breezy halter dress comes with a HUD for ten gorgeous patterns including this lovely watercolor floral.  I heartily recommend checking this designer out as soon as you want some beautiful additions to your closet.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Play a Little Game

Play a Little Game

Good evening, FabFree! It’s almost Friday! Almost the weekend! Hang in there, we can do this. And to help us along, I’ve tracked down a super cute casual outfit that won’t break the bank from the UP Event.

Fraia Fashion is just one of several gift givers for the event. This cute jacket and mini skirt set, “Ariel”, is set out for us at only 10L. You get the jacket and skirt as two pieces and even two separate HUDs to pick your colors. I love it when a designer makes it so easy to mi and match with other items we may have in our wardrobes. Oh, and look at that popped collar, so cute!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink -Hourglass, Physique

I’m also wearing a nifty new necklace which is a free gift at the UP Event. Zola Designs has set out this sweet summery “Sun Necklace” for us this round. The necklace comes with the gold and diamond I’m wearing and a silver and ruby version.  I think it’s going to be a go to in my closet.

The UP Event runs until August 15th so don’t waste any time!

I Feel FABULOUS!!

Rapture July GG; Promagic Pride Heels; Fabia Ira;

A couple of years ago I was at a shopping event wearing my FabFree tag and got an IM from someone in the crowd “You’re not that fabulous”. Au contraire mon frere!! I am always fabulous in SL!

I bring you news of a new group gift from Rapture. It’s a gown; it’s a skirt & top; it can be whatever you want it to be. Rapture has spectacular styles that will make you feel like you’ve stepped off the runway at a Paris fashion show. A high slit shows off your left leg nicely. You will feel so sexy when wearing this.

The Rapture group is $590L to join. Yes, I know this seems a hefty price. BUT for that join price you get
:::20% OFF new releases first 3 days:::
:::Monthly gifts:::
:::VIP only store sale:::
:::5% store credit on purchases:::
So you really get your join fee back within 1 – 2 months just with group gifts. In addition, there are frequently gifts of store credit.

Happy Shopping!

When Life Gives You Lemons…

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Hey FabFree! It’s been a minute, but I’m back now, taking in all the sun and enjoying the summer weather. I am embracing that saying fully here with “when life gives you lemons make lemonade”. Basically, lets spread the positivity and good warm summer vibes no matter what we are hit with! I am going to share some summer fun goodies today so let’s dig in! 

The Summer Carnival

The Summer Carnival event is a big hit this year. The Summer Carnival is filled with cotton candy and popcorn machines, awesome summer items and fun carnival games to play! They also have a couple freebies out, so there should be something for everyone. Some of the free items I am showing from the event today are:

  • A free wall tapestry from Ari-Pari that says “Hello Summer”! It’s great, and so bright. 
  • Louchara has this lovely garden shelf out for free at the event too. 

No group is required for these gifts, so just swing by Summer Carnival to grab them before the event ends on July 16th. 

Some Cute Sandals

Another freebie I have to show today are these adorable sandals by Hopes Creations. These are a free gift at SL18B. Go over to Hopes Creations booth to get them and they are yours, and they come in several patterns.

55 Hairs!

The last announcement I want to make is about more gift hairs from Fabia. This hair designer has been so generous to us lately, and they are throwing more at us. They have no less than 55 hair fatpacks for free at their store right now for group members only. The Fabia group costs 200L to join. What a steal! These gifts will all be gone on July 1st, so scoop them up quickly before they are retired for good.

Enjoy the summer weather, FabFree!

Hot Diggity Dog!

77th St 7L Hot Dog Vendor

Hey gang!

It’s time again to go strolling through 77th Street for lots of gorgeous items and don’t forget about those 7L deals!  I got so hungry walking around that I grabbed myself a hot dog.  Soooo yummy!  Actually, I wanted *endless* hot dogs (health food nut that I am… not!!!), so I bought the entire Kei’s Old Time Hotdog Cart vendor for a whopping 7L!  And the hot dogs it hands out are absolutely *delish*!  A perfect weekend treat!  A stroll in the sun, shopping for goodies and a hot dog to bring along!  That sure sounds like a happy Saturday afternoon to me!

(admit it, you are craving hot dogs for real now, aren’t you??)

My hair is a Free Energy Group Gift (group is free to join) from Fabia and the necklace is a gacha from Fabia too.  😍
