Perfectly Pastel

Perfectly Pastel

Hey there Fab Free, I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes self care includes a little romance. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking anything tawdry. I mean ambiance, atmosphere, create a place where you feel peaceful, pampered, and can relax. I put on a pretty but comfortable pajama set, lit some candles, and found a soft squishy pillow to snuggle. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, especially during these trying times.

To create my romantic atmosphere I picked up the free Dreamland Designs gift at Gachaland. The Dreamland Designs gift is this beautiful display of lit candles, pink flowers, and petals. The display also has a lovely particle effect to add to the romantic vibes. This squishy pillow by Pillows I’m holding is another free gift at Gachaland. It has a bento hold pose which also worked nicely with my AO. Lastly, my anime-esque girly pink pigtail hairstyle is a free gift at Gachaland by Ayasha. It comes in the single pastel pink color shown. The Gachaland event group is free to join, and you’ll need the group tag to get these and several other free gifts. Just look for the gift boxes (most of them are purple) outside the booths at the Gachaland event.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Cremosas Store

Hi Fab Free, with all the recent changes to the Fab Free community, we decided to bring back “Designer Friday” posts. We hope you’ll enjoy them! This week’s post is all about Cremosas Store. Flirty female fashion. That is how I’d describe the clothing at Cremosas Store. At this ladies fashion boutique you’ll find everything from dresses to swimwear, even shoes. I also spotted bento nails. applier clothing, and holiday themed outfits. The store appears to be well organized with sections like “Tops” clearly labeled with large pink signage. Below I’ll give some detailed information about the Cremosas Store group, gifts available, and other freebies and sales happening at Cremosas Store.

Store Groups

Cremosas Store has 2 in-world groups. The free-to-join “Cremosas Fashion” is where you’ll get access to the monthly advent style gift calendar, group gifts, the wall of lucky letter boards, exclusive group discounts, and all the news about new releases, sales, and specials. The “Cremosas Gift VIP” group has a one time join fee of 250 linden, and gives you access to exclusive VIP only gifts.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift 

There is of course a free group gift at Cremosas Store for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free gift at Cremosas is located to the left as you enter the store, right next to the Lucky Letter boards. The Fab Free gift does require you to wear your Fab Free group tag. The current gift is a sleek jumpsuit made to fit Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus).

A Little bit “Batty”

A Little Bit Batty

Happy Thursday, Fab Free! I am looking a bit batty or like the local weirdo librarian with this strange look I’ve put together. The world is going mad so my look is matching that, I guess! Let’s have fun with it and dig into the free stuff and dollarbies you can get right now; after all, we all need something fun to do with this time off!

The Dress

This dress is ” The Power of Love” gift from Entice. It is their newest group gift which came out only a few weeks ago, and it’s a fatpack which allows you to change the colours of the dress, belt and trim. It reminds me of fashion styles from the early 20th-century. It would be lovely for a formal occasion or just for putting together a unique look like I have done here. The Entice group is free to join and you can get the dress completely free at their main store with their group tag activated.

Dollarbies from S.Lima!

Some of the other almost-free items I have added to this outfit include the hair and glasses dollarbies from S.Lima. The hair is especially a great offer, as it is a full fatpack. The creator was initially going to sell this hair but decided to gift it to all of us for 1 L! How generous! So if you need a pigtails hairstyle, this is a great new dollarbie!

I really love these round glasses with bats/demon wings on them as well. They are so different and really pretty too! You can buy these on S.Lima’s marketplace store for 1 L.

Some Free Jewelery to Top it Off

Pure Poison has a whole lot of free jewelry group gifts at the back if their store in their gacha room. To get these, join their free group and grab all the gifts in the bags. I am currently wearing the Aileen necklace from this loot.

A Discounted Bento Head at the Skin Fair

Although this certainly isn’t free, I thought I would make a short note about the head I have on here as it is currently on a highly discounted price at the Skinfair. LOGO‘s “Josie Bento Head” is on sale for 999 Linden and that includes the head and all of LOGO‘s customization and animation huds which you can use with all of their other heads and future releases. These head bundles are normally priced at 3,499, so it’s a great deal. LOGO does put heads on sale occasionally so having these huds may even be useful in the future! You can pick up Josie at the skin fair until March 29th.

Be Sweet

Sweet

Hello Fab Free! I’m sorry to have been away so long, that ever persistent Real Life thing has been quite demanding. Needless to say I’m happy to be here and blogging again! The Candyland 2 event recently started and there are a lot of fun freebies to be had. I picked up the free event gift buy Kawaii Couture and the one from The Bold Llama. The gifts at the Candyland 2 event require the free-to-join Evil Bunny Hunt group. Keep reading for details about each of these sweet gifts. Credits are listed at the end like always.

Kawaii Couture 

I think if there was a comfort food desert milk and cookies might be one of mine. A self proclaimed sugar addict, I couldn’t resist these sweet treats from Kawaii Couture at Candyland 2. The milk bottle and heart shaped cookies are their free Candyland 2 event gifts. The held treats have bento hold poses.

The Bold Llama 

My tank top is the free Candyland 2 gift by The Bold Llama. With the word “sweet” followed by a winky-face, this top is perfect for my fellow sugar junkies, or just to let people know that like me, you too can be sweet when you want to. 😛 Whatever the message is sweet, and this shirt is too cute to pass up, especially for free.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Ebody, Ocacin, Standard Mesh (xs- XL) + Alpha Layer

Returning & Retiring Goodies at Death Row Designs

Returning & Retiring @ DRD

Hey, Fab Free! I wanted to make a quick post to let you know about an offer currently available at Death Row Designs (DRD). Lots of past group gifts await for free, so read on, Fab Free!

“Returning” Gifts

Currently, all of DRD’s past group gifts are available for free. The store has a sale going on right now which lasts until March 18. During the sale, the store has returned all of their past gifts for a limited time. There are 45 gifts in total- so a few years’ worth of gifts to be claimed. To get the gifts join the Death Row Designs group for free and click the rows of vendors which are stacked at the back of the room by the entrance of the store. You will also find recent month’s gifts to the left of the entrance. From what I understand, these gifts with be retiring from the store permanently when the sale is over so you will want to get over to DRD quickly!

Eclectic Decor

There are some very unique and interesting items in this batch of group gifts. Included in the bunch are decor items, accessories, hats, and jewelry. I have displayed some of the decor gifts in my living room above. The quality of the mesh in these items is stunning, so grab these while you can! Again, these gifts will be retiring soon so go quickly to snatch these up!

Have a fun weekend, Fab Free!

Free and Native Spirit

Native Imaginarium

Who doesn’t like gachas and gifts?! The Imaginarium has started and you’ll find both at this event. I picked up several of the free Imaginairum event group gifts, and played the Petite Mort gacha machine, so I’ve got a lot to share with you. Let’s start with the free stuff!

Imaginairum Group Gifts

All the gifts at the Imaginarium are free. They also require the Imaginarium group, which is free to join. While wearing the group tag, just click the gift box at each participating booth. Most of the boxes are purple. A few of the designers recolored/textured the package.

Why Not?

Many designers put out a free gift, Why Not? put out 2 free gifts for this round of Imaginarium. First, a beautiful piece of wall art with the following written in pretty script: Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with. I’ve heard that saying before, and it always makes me smile. The 2nd gift from Why Not? is a cute primary colored bird house complete with grass and flowers for your yard. Why Not? has 2 booths at the Imaginarium (they are right next to each other). You’ll find 1 free gift at each booth.

Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine 

The Imaginarium gift by Kaya’s is the adorable armoire with the wood cutout tree and blackbird. It comes in the single color version shown. The fun part of this cute freebie is that the cabinet doors, and the drawers all open! Look for this free gift at the booth with the “Vooma Vaccum” gacha.

Inkme

The free Imaginarium gift by Inkme is a cute little stool with a mandala pattern on the cushion. This stool has 4 individual sit poses, and can be copied so you can rez out multiples. The pose menu also has an “adjust” option as well so you can adjust your pose.

RatzCatz

The last of the free Imaginarium gifts for this post comes from RatzCatz. The cute decorative jars with pretty pastel eggs inside are perfect for getting ready for spring and the Easter holiday. Again, don’t forget you’ll need the free Imaginarium group tag.

Petite Mort

I am admittedly partial to Petite Mort’s gachas, it’s true. I just can’t help it when each of these furniture and decor gacha sets are so beautiful. This livingroom gacha set at Imaginarium is called “Native Spirit” and it has an elegantly comfortable southwestern feel. There are 12 total items, including 1 Rare, and an event exclusive which is awarded after 20 pulls. This gacha will cost you just 50 linden per play. The exclusive is a shabby chic table and chairs set. The sofa and armchair both have single sit poses, as do the ottomans, and the metal accent chair. I’ve included the gacha key for this gorgeous set below, and a full list of items in the credits. Have fun Fab Free!
