Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

Salesbuster

Coming Soon

Get on those Black Friday deals, FabFree! The sales are going on all weekend. Have you checked out the FabFree Black Friday Sale Listing yet? It’s amazing! Props to Aline for putting that list together… I’m about to go through and check them out! I did dip into some of my favourite stores’ sales already though and wanted to share some insight on what they have going on this weekend…

Doorbuster!

Today I am showing a Black Friday offering from Blueberry. Blueberry is having a 50% off sale at their mainstore and on their Marketplace store through the end of Cyber Monday. Even better, Blueberry has a “Doorbuster” deal out for the occasion. The deal is a winter edition pack of their Poppy Leggings on sale for only 75L for Black Friday weekend only. The leggings include 24 new winter patterns and some classic colours are also included. The leggings have been updated for a variety of bodies, and I believe the leggings will work with other huds in the past made for these leggings. For the Blueberry addicts out there, you know what I’m talking about. 😉 They’re awesome!

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass
  • Reborn
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • GenX Classic & Curvy

Viviana

FAGA reopened this weekend, and they have even more new group gifts available. Their group is temporarily free to join. The hairstyle I am wearing is called Viviana in an exclusive pack, one of the brand new group gifts. Aline blogged all about their free group join and their other group gifts here, so make sure you check out her awesome post.

Have a great night, FabFree!

Feelin’ Myself

Feelin' Myself

I’m feeling myself tonight with some long tresses.  Are you in the mood for some free hair?  How about a bunch of free hair?  You know you are!

Long Tresses

This set of lovely long braids is coming at you courtesy of FAGA.  There are plenty of great group gifts over at this hair shop, and I’ve got some great news.  The group is currently free to join!  It’s usually 350L, so get in now while it’s free and pick up all the goodies.  Just look under each display for the little grey signs that say VIP gift on them.  A shoutout to Ms. Emma for letting me know the group is free again!

Have fun with your new hurrrr….

Telsiope Has Your Number

Telsiope pose RP SF0051A 10-28-2022 3_001

Feeling up to spookiness yet? You should because Halloween is knocking at the door. I’m not going to show you a costume today (yet). Instead I’m bringing you news from Telsiope Couture. As I have said in previous posts about this store is that I LOVE it. So let’s get talking about what you can find there.

Sexy Mama

I am feeling so sexy in this body-hugging provocative dress that fits like a sheer glove. It just makes you feel like you’re sending clouds of pheromones out into the world. Ooh-la-la! Yes, it’s sheer but have no fear, strategically placed solid swathes cover your bits. Included in the package is a texture change HUD with 20 options to choose from making the dress versatile. It’s like getting a fat pack without all the extra pieces.

Sizes included are Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. When you tp into the shop go up the stairs to the third floor. Alessia is currently the gift in the Midnight Madness board – give it a slap. There is also a Scratch & Win board and a host of gifts for other groups like Fabfree. The prices are very reasonable so get shopping.

Telsiope AMber_001

My second look from Telsiope Couture is the Amber Halloween Dress & Boots. It’s a dress that is not strictly for Halloween so you can wear it anytime. The included texture change HUD gives you three options in four colors. Your color choices are purple/lavender, black, red, and green. The texture choices are plain colors, small symbols (this is what I’m wearing) and last, one with large pentacles. You can really do a lot with the HUD. Amber is also sized for Belleza, Maitreya, & SLink. The boots are included in this black color. I got this for $50L. I always feel like I’m getting a nice bargain from Telsiope Couture.

Hair Today & Maybe More Tomorrow?

I have tons of hair but I cant resist buying new styles when they are on sale. I was beyond excited when I saw that No_Match had an offer out for the Happy Weekend Sale. I zoomed to the store and grabbed the No_Confusion red pack for only $60L. It’s really cute and you can change the color of the bow headband. There are many great hair designers around the grid but No_Match has remained my favorite for years.

One last note – I could not remember or find the pose used in picture #1. If anyone would like to apply to be my inventory organizer please send your resume to my Zanzibar.

Twin Cats

Two Cats

Hey FabFree! I have a new feline friend and we decided to go out on a spooky walk together.

To start off, I am showing a few more free gifts from the Halloween Shop & Hop, including:

  • Free eyeshadow from Pout!, which comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included and they are stunning, as is to be expected from Pout!
  • A free HD lipstick applier from Purple for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included.
  • Free mesh spiders that sit so perfectly on your legs from Seance. These are just fantastic! Be careful if you are scared of spiders, as these creep right up on your legs. You do need to join the free Seance group to get this gift, but the gift is in their Halloween Shop & Hop booth.

Two Cats II

  • My striking eyes are the latest group gift from lovelysweet. They come in a darks and lights pack, and they fit all Lelutka Heads, Omega, and BOM.
  • My hairstyle is only 1L from FAGA on the Marketplace. I made the dreaded mistake of leaving the FAGA group when I should have stayed in it, so I was happy that I could pick up this beautiful hairstyle gift for only 1 linden on the MP. I love when that happens. The Mini hairstyle includes an exclusive colour hud of several different colour options.

Two Cats III

  • Lastly, my new cat is the latest free group gift at SEmotion & Libellune. This is an animesh companion, and there are only 8 more days left to get it. It’s so cute!

Have fun, FabFree!

Helping Hands

Helping Hands

Thinking pink for October is a good thing – because we all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I won’t go on a long rant about it, because if you’re like me and are overly empathetic it can always be a bit sad to discuss.  That’s not to say you can’t make a difference and show your support for a worthy cause!  Let’s Rock Your Rack!

Rock and Roll

Rock Your Rack is a charity event in SL that donates a bunch of proceeds from designers’ creations directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. The stores all have 10L prizes and most donate a portion (or all) of their takings to this great cause.  I stopped by Alaskametro’s booth, and looked for the little hanger icon hidden somewhere in the store – pay 10L and you’ll get this really pretty bodysuit!  It comes with appliers for Maitreya, Omega appliers and BOM layers.  Go do your part and get something pretty too!

And New Hair

FAGA are at it again, this time with another group gift.  The Novia hairstyle is pretty, gathered at the back and replete with little pearls in it – perfect for your pulled together looks (or even a wedding, as the name of the hairstyle hints to in Spanish!).  The FAGA group is currently 350L to join and you’ll find a few group gifts in store.  They’re a bit hidden – just look for the big display with this hairstyle, and click on the grey panel below it that says VIP gift on it.  Ta-da!

Right, I’m off!

Dressed Up from The Free Dove

091522 - Dressed Up from The Free Dove - 01

The Free Dove, as most of you probably already know (since its been blogged numerous times here), has been around for nearly 18 years. It is the SLife’s work of ⒹoⓋє (palomma.casanova) and she has poured her heart and soul into it. You must join the group and wear the tag, it’s free to join, and once you do then you can click on all the gifts that you want on the bottom floor of the venue.

For this post I decided to get dressed there. Don’t worry, I kept clothes on…but as I shopped I picked up things I wanted to share with you and worked to coordinate them together to see how much of a look I could create. Please note there are loads of other awesome items too that I could have continued with but did not want to totally overwhelm you.

  • The first thing is this pretty little black dress from REED. Aline blogged it back in February of 2021 in the animal print, so go check out her styling too! The dress is fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies. The HUD allows you to change it between 6 prints/colors.
  • REED also has the heels I’m wearing. They also are fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies and have 6 colors on the HUD.

091522 - Dressed Up from The Free Dove - 02

There are four other free things to show you still. I had to accessorize this look, of course.

  • One more item set from REED is the jewelry. My bracelet, necklace (and hiding earrings) are all available in one box and are unrigged and resizeable.
  • Next, my hair is a gift from FAGA. It comes in large and small, has 4 style choices on the HUD and 82 colors! There are more customization options on the HUD, too. Caroline wore it in another color back in August of last year.
  • Finally for my makeup: my nails are a gift from GO! Makeup fit for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice and Slink. The HUD gives 8 nail polishes to wear. And my lipstick is a sampler from Shiny Stuffs with 3 red colors. They are for Lelutka Evo & Evo X only.

Until next time!

The Get Crabby Hunt!

Get Crabby Hunt

I’ve been having lots of fun this month blogging the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. You can see my past posts on this complex and huge event here and here. Today I’m introducing you to another aspect of this event. On top of the main event, they have a hunt going on, which takes place at Get Crabby Hunt Island. As you explore the Sim, the hunt object you are looking for is a crab! This is a paid hunt, and a group join fee is required to participate in it. The group costs 500L to join. Pictures of all the Get Crabby Hunt prizes are posted on their hunt web page HERE. You will see group joiners for the hunt group at Get Crabby Hunt Island. You can also pick up a crab plushie and crab hats as a group gift there as well if you decide to join the hunt group. Here is the link to the hunt group to join if you have trouble finding it. Again, be warned that the group costs 500L to join.

secondlife:///app/group/88edea59-d946-ecd1-ef0e-764cba73d782/about

Note that 100% of the funds that are spent towards the Get Crabby Hunt are being donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the designers do not make any profits from this hunt. It’s very kind of the creators out there to make all those products and to put them up for a benefit. Sometimes we don’t recognize how hard creators work to give us gifts, but to go the extra mile to donate beautiful products to a fundraiser that gives back to society shows how incredible the creative community in Second Life is. Doctors Without Borders is an organization that provides medical care to people around the world as a result of war, conflicts, and other crises. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival donated over 100, 000 real-life American dollars from this event in the last 7 years, and I hope these donations can help those in need around the world this year too! The Get Crabby Hunt ends on September 18th, so if you plan to do this hunt make sure you get to it well before this date so you have time to find all the prizes.

I am showing two hunt prizes from the Get Crabby Hunt and another 10L find from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival today as featured items, so keep reading for all the details!

Do you Love to Mix & Match?

First off, the fabulous outfit I have on is an absolute must-have! This is the Get Crabby Hunt prize from MOoH!. This outfit includes a bikini top, a skirt and bikini bottoms (which are worn under my skirt). This is a versatile set because you can wear it as a bikini, a full outfit or separates. The outfit comes with a number of funky patterns you can apply to the separate parts via a colour change HUD, so mixing and matching is possible. Plain classic colours that are included in the hud are red, white, light violet, dark plum and pink. Pattern options include florals, skulls, a dragon pattern (shown here) and some other fun patterns. You can see the possibilities of mixing and matching the texture options in this outfit in the vendor photo below.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Petite
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Mounds

Melinda outfit

Pineapple, Bora Bora

The second hunt prize I am featuring is a wonderful painting of a pineapple made by Katherine Littlepaws, who owns Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery. This painting is just fantastic- it looks so realistic, colourful and expressive! The background is fantastic with the collage elements the artist has included. This is a prize on the Get Crabby Hunt.

Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery also has another painting on a special promotion for only 10 Lindens at their Spoonful of Sugar Festival booth. The get to the exact spot where you can grab the painting, go  here. The item on sale for this low price is the small colourful painting shown in my photo on top of the pineapple piece. Note that this smaller painting is not part of the hunt, so anyone can purchase it and no group is required to buy it for 10L. 100% of the proceeds spent on this painting are given to Doctors Without Borders.

Phew, that was a lot of information! Have fun, FabFree! I’m off to go get a tropical cocktail now. I deserve it after all that writing. 😉

Strike Three

Strike Three

Good morning Ladies!!!  I hope you all get this post in time to snatch up these awesome deals I am showing you.  It wasn’t that long ago that I found out about all the great sales that happen each week; you see I really wasn’t shopping much as I thought (so silly of me) that I didn’t need anymore clothes, shoes and hair.  I had forgotten that SL hosts such amazing talent that needs to be discovered, so thank goodness I found Seraphim. It’s a great way to find out about all the shopping events and sales that happen all over the grid.

Along with the FabFree blog you will be armed with the best knowledge on how to stock your inventory with free and discounted items so you won’t go SL broke.

Pure Poison has put out this cute outfit for only 60L as part of the Happy Weekend Sale, it comes in a fatpack of 14 colors and 4 metal colors for the straps.  My hair is from Faga another Happy Weekend Sale item; each color HUD is 60L and if you want the style HUD, it’s 60L as well.

By the way I didn’t really get my sports sayings mixed up, I know this is a football term 😉
