All Things Considered
Hi There Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to be able to share some fabulous finds with you. You might be thinking, what an odd combination, a silk robe with bandanna hair. You might be right, it is perhaps a little odd. However, it’s exactly something Pru would do. So think of this as a friendly reminder to just be yourself.

Speaking of the bandanna hair, this style is a current group gift at Fabia. There are actually several group gifts available at Fabia, but this long hairstyle caught my eye the most. It comes with a style hud that lets you choose how the hair does or does not lay over your shoulders. It also is a fatpack with all the color choices. The Fabia group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

So yes, Pru is wearing a lovely satin-like lace trimmed robe with her skull bandanna, what?! I do like this robe a lot, it’s parted but still covers you up a little. It is a free group-only lucky letter board prize at Insomnia Store. The Insomnia Store group is free to join, and there are multiple lucky letter boards. Also, the letters change fast, so hopefully you won’t have to wait terribly long for your letter/number to appear. This pretty robe comes in the silver version shown and a matching gold version.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Pumpkins Stay

The Pumpkins Stay
Hey There Fab Free’rs! So I’ve decided I can let go of Halloween, but the pumpkins gotta stay. At least until the end of November! Especially this barbed wire pumpkin candle holder by Reka. It’s a free group gift for members of the Reka group. The Reka group is also free to join. I sometimes have a soft spot for things like barbed wire re-purposed into art and the shabby-chic aesthetic.

Speaking of shabby-chic, I think these cute potted succulents fit the description as well. I picked them up for free at the Gacha Garden event. I actually picked up quite a few fantastic free gifts at the current Gacha Garden round. There are tons! The gifts at Gacha Garden require you to wear the Gimme Gacha event group tag. This group is free to join. The succulent gift is by Your Dreams. It comes with a single plant that you can copy and modify.

Next up on my little gift grabbing adventure through the Gacha Garden, this hair. I know Juli already showed you this cute free hairstyle by Fabia in her post “Fab Mad“, but who can resist that hat?! It’s another of the free gifts and it comes in a set of red hair color choices.

Pru’s other-worldly olive colored eyes are the free Gacha Garden gift from Lotus. These eyes come in Lelutka Appliers, Catwa Appliers, and a set of mesh eyes. There are 5 beautiful pupil-less color choices.

It has been a while since Pru had multiple piercings. This piercing set by Supernatural made me wonder why it’s been so long. The set is quite pretty, and is yet another free gift at Gacha Garden. The set includes 4 piercings that can be worn separately or together. There is a full set in gold, and one in silver. A color change hud for the gemstone part of the piercings is also included.

Lastly, I know you can’t see much of it, my apologies, however the wooden coffee table everything is sitting on is also a free gift at Gacha Garden. Its by a shop called Rassuel. The table is short and rectangular, with a single shelf and square legs. It’s a great basic modern looking furniture piece.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Plus, being part of the group means you will get updates and be able to chat with other Garden-Goers. One more thing… the group has a trades chat!

Fabia is Fabulous

It’s like Fabia put out this lovely FREE gift hair just for me! This is ‘Tanya’ and the gift hair with attached hat comes with a HUD for five fun streaked red styles. All redhead, all the time! You can see why I liked it. 😉

Feelin’ a little Mad…

about BoHo style, that is! My gorgeous jacket, vest and shirt is one of the prizes for the “Mad Hatter” gacha from !gO! and at just 75L per play… I played more than a few times. I love that in the !gO! gachas the commons are just as fun and desirable as the Rares. And with twenty seven possible prizes to play for, I bet you’ll find one that makes you “go mad”.

Amber is the color of your energy

Amber is the color of your energy

Hey FabFree. I’m just hanging out, enjoying the view. Oh and wearing new, pretty, free things of course!

Short Hair

My hair is the latest free group gift from Fabia. The gift is a fatpack of hair that comes with a really great hairstyle HUD as well! You can choose to have the hair pushed behind one ear, the other ear, or neither ear. Options for days! Fabia is 100L to join if you’re not already in the group and totes worth it! There are some previous group gifts still out in the store as well. I just activated my group tag and clicked the vendor picture in the store and free hair was all miiiiiiine.

Unzipped Shorts

I’m not typically a fan of the half opened shorts look – “Zip up your pants! We’re trying to live in a society here! And get off my lawn!” But in this case I’ll make an exception because these are super cute and really well done. Yes, that’s all that it takes for me to change my mind. They are a free group gift from Un!q for the ShopaholicSL group, which is free to join. The shorts come sized for:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

While you’re there picking up the shorts be sure to check out the gifts for other groups as well, including the Un!q store group.

And that’s all I have to show you today. Thanks for stopping by!

Just Call Me Angel Of The Morning

Just Call Me Angel Of The Morning

Good morning, FabFree! Today I wanted to share a few deals with you that expire very, very soon. Just let me finish brushing my teeth and rinse, and then we’ll get right to it!

Gacha Robe & Panties

My undies and robe are both from The Arcade, which ends today. They are from two separate sets – the panties are by le fil casse and the robe is by Dead Dollz. But they go so well together and I love them both! You’ll want to zoom in on the picture or click on it so you can see it bigger in flickr, because the detail on the robe is seriously gorgeous. My windlight and editing make it a little fuzzy, but it’s really lovely and perfectly sheer. And the undies are fantastic too (thank you, Izzy!).

So Much Hair

This is pretty good first-thing-in the-morning hair, no? It’s one of the free group gifts from Fabia. And when I say “one of” I mean for real because there is an enormous wall of hair. Sooooo many. Aline blogged about the Fabia gifts last month and they’re still available, but only until July 1st. It’ll cost you 100L to join the group but seriously, soooo much free hair.

Okay so nothing completely free but still really great deals, right? Happy shopping!

Didn’t They Tell Us, Don’t Rush Into Things

Didn't They Tell Us, Don't Rush Into Things

 

I was planning a different post for today but I can’t let Love and Nevi have all the fun with the SL15B gifts, now can I? I’ve only made it into two of the four sims so far but I’m super impressed with everything that I’ve unpacked.

Fringe, yeah!

These shorts! OMG There is lacing up both sides and of course the fringe along the bottom. I didn’t play with them very much because I love them in black, but the various parts are color change as well. They are free from Ascend at SL15B and are sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I’m not a hipster…

…I just play one sometimes on FabFree. haha OMG I love these free glasses that AMD put out for SL15B sooooooo much. They are seriously adorable. Y’all I’m so gushy over these gifts that I can’t seem to find any actual adjectives. I’d like to think that I’m usually kind of, a little bit articulate but not so much today. Now all I can do is babble and throw out acronyms. I’ll have to let my picture do the talking.

Pssst My hair is only 1L and it’s one of my favorites! Have a look at the credits for details. Now I guess I need to go try to get into the other two SL15B sims. Peace out!

Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

The Wearin’ O’ The Green

Wearin' o' the Green

Irish is in My DNA

You know those TV commercials where people talk about their DNA test results? Well, mine shows that I’m more than a quarter Irish. So, St. Patrick’s Day is kind of a big deal in my house, and as you can see, I did a little celebrating last night at Hunny’s Pub. :mrgreen:

And my outfit? I didn’t spend a single Linden, thanks to amazing gifts from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I was able to find a dress, hair, necklace, makeup, and nails… all for FREE!

Oh, and I skipped the pint of Guinness because Hunny’s was serving a special St. Patrick’s Day cocktail that I’ll tell you about below (also free).

Luck of the Irish?

Not really, but I’m sure it doesn’t hurt. This isn’t a difficult hunt, but I’ll admit that some of the gifts are really well hidden!

The Hair

FABIA Mesh Hair set out this sexy, mussed ‘do as their St. Patrick’s Day Hunt gift. Adriana comes in a fatpack of colors and includes an alpha.

The Necklace

I love this shamrock necklace from Violetility, especially the Celtic-inspired design. The Leprechaun Necklace comes in one size and does not include a resizer, but it is modifiable so you can right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

The Dress

My dress was the gift from Decoy. The Lillie Dress comes in grass green, as well as the shamrocks version that I’m wearing. It is sized for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass mesh bodies.

The Makeup & Nails

I stopped at LIVIA to grab their gift: the Envy Eyeshadow & Nail Appliers. 3 different eyeshadows are included, with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Omega, and tattoo layers for classic avatars.

The nails include 5 different designs for hands and feet, with appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Vista, and Omega-enabled Bento hands.

LIVIA // Envy Eyeshadow & Nails GIFT

The Drink

No St. Patrick’s Day party is complete without an adult beverage, right? And thankfully, ChicChica was serving up exactly what I needed. The St. Patrick’s Day Special Cocktail comes with a sprig of mint and a lucky four-leaf clover charm on the straw. Just what you need to quench your virtual thirst! 😀

About The Hunt

The Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt will continue through 24 March 2018. Each store has a free hunt item as well as a special discounted item for sale.

Click HERE for a list of stores and hints, or join the Finders, Keepers Hunt Events in-world group to grab the hunt HUD, as well as a few extra gifts. 🙂

Sláinte!

I <3 Holidays (and FREE gifts!)

Happy Holidays!

Belated happy holidays to you, fabulous readers! 😀

Whatever you celebrate, I hope you are having a wonderful, restful holiday season. I’ve been enjoying some quiet time at home with my family, as well as catching up on DVR’d TV shows that I hadn’t had time to watch. Not very exciting, but definitely what I needed.

Gifts Galore

If you’re a Maitreya Lara body wearer, you’ll want to run – not walk – over to the Maitreya mainstore. Earlier this week, not one, not two, but SEVEN gifts were put under the Christmas tree for members of the Maitreya V.I.P. in-world group. The gifts are special Christmas editions of Maitreya classics that had not yet been updated for Lara mesh body, and I’m wearing two of them here today.

I’ve been wearing this super-sexy draped dress for a couple of days and getting compliments wherever I go. The lovely Maitreya Mignon Evening Burgandy dress dips low in the back and hugs your curves in all the right places.

I paired the dress with the Maitreya Gold Shanti Burgandy heels for Maitreya high feet. The wrapped leather ties in the back and is a perfect match with the Mignon dress.

Keep in mind that these are gifts for wearers of the Maitreya Lara mesh body. They may or may not fit other mesh bodies (especially the shoes), but it might be worth a try.

According to the notecard (still in the notices), more updates of previous Maitreya items are coming, as well “some exciting newness concerning the Lara mesh body.” I can’t wait to find out what that last one is!

Bejeweled

If you’re a member of the Kunglers in-world group, you should have received a gorgeous Christmas gift in your group notices.

The Simone necklace and earrings set has dainty flowers of ruby and diamond and makes a “statement” without upstaging the Maitreya dress.

If you don’t find the gift in your group notices, you can head over to the Kunglers mainstore to pick up a copy.

Beautiful Betty

FABIA Mesh Hair recently set out this cute Betty hair as a Christmas gift. The gift includes a fatpack of colors, as well as a styling HUD which will give you 5 different styles to choose from.

FABIA is also offering a 30% discount on all items in the store through January 7th.

Enjoy! ❤

Pretty Posies

Sweet Floral
Oh Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very girly today, princess-like even thanks to this pretty floral dress and matching shoes from NSP Florals. The gifts at NSP Florals have always been generous, so I was not at all surprised to see that the shoes came with this beautiful pink dress. I can’t help but imagine a romantic date on a warm summer evening dancing and laughing in this dress. I also love the added detail of the straps on the bodice.  The NSP Florals group has a one time join fee of 125 lindens. In addition to this June group gift, there are group only lucky letters, and you can purchase a few of the previous group gifts for just 5 lindens each.
