Rainy Days

Rainy Days
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been rainy and cold in my part of the world, and all I want to do is cuddle up in this big over-sized sweater from Searen, and listen to some music inside away from the cold and the wet. The cozy sweater, leg warmers, and headphones are all FREE gifts at Searen. I also picked up the TRUTH VIP gift for February, and it’s the perfect effortless shaggy bob.

Searen – All three of the gifts (sweater, leg warmers, headphones) are completely FREE at Searen. There is no need to join a group, just purchase each gift for zero linden. There are also a few other FREE gifts available. The intentionally huge sweater has a color change hud, and comes in several mesh sizes. The leggings are in the white color shown, and fit the Maitreya Lara body only. The headphones are not only cute as can be, they have a color change hud and can be sized via touch menu.
Mesh Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

TRUTH – Honestly, I have never been disappointed in any of the monthly gifts from the TRUTH VIP group. The fee is worth it. Like every month February’s gift is a full fat-pack hairstyle with style hud. The TRUTH VIP group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. Also, if you missed a past gift, most previous VIP gifts can be purchased by VIP group members for 500 linden for the full fat-pack.

Firelight Hearts

Firelight Hearts
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Is anyone else just now realizing that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away!? I got caught up in all the hearts and cuteness and forgot to pay attention to the actual date. Thankfully there is still time to find something cute to wear. I suggest this fun little dress from HEC (Hot Elegant Clothing) for the WomenStuff group. Also included with this gift is a HUD that lets you change the glow, and  “sheerness” of the dress, or hide it completely for a “strip” effect. The WomenStuff group is just 50 linden to join. This dress has a matching alpha layer as well, so it can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), eBody, Fitmesh, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Everyone loves FREE hair, especially me! The sleek hairstyle Pru is wearing is a FREE 68 Main event group gift by Firelight. The 68 Main group is FREE to join. With the Firelight gift at 68 Main you’ll get the style in 2 sizes and a color hud with the light brown shade shown and a darker brunette option.

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Here are the details!

Good Golly Miss Mollie

Hello Winter
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like this has been the longest week of all the long weeks! lol It’s probably just me though. Thankfully I always have Fab Free to “come home” to. I also get the best kind of retail therapy, free! One of the things I love about this time of year in Second Life is the abundance of gifts, and of course my ability to share them with you.

Besom

I love this cute casual hairstyle from Besom.  It’s that style you wear when you are too lazy to get out of your comfy sweats but you still wanna look cute. ha! It’s also their most recent FREE group gift. This awesome gift is a fatpack, which of course means you get all the currently available color packs Besom offers. To get your copy of this hairstyle gift, head over to Besom and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

FaMeshed

I know I have talked about how laggy I am these days, well I decided to cross my fingers and hope my little laptop would bravely allow me to navigate the current round of FaMeshed.  By the grace of the technology gods it worked, and thankfully I didn’t have to navigate far. There are lots of FREE holiday gifts at FaMeshed stacked up under the Christmas tree very near the landing point. One of the gifts I picked up is this super cute cropped hoodie by Vinyl. I couldn’t say a bad thing about this top if I wanted to. Everything about it is well made, and I love the wording on the front. The top reads ” Hello Winter” in a simple font with a little bit of gold embellishment. You will need to wear the FaMeshed group tag to get this FREE gift and the many others. The FaMeshed group is FREE to join at this time.

Holiday Tacos

Tacos Tequila
Oh Hello There; Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! There are quite a few things that are kind of part of the local culture where I am from. This outfit embodies two of them. For starters, most people have a deep love for tacos. I’m not sure if it is our proximity to Mexico or if the tacos are just that super fantastic, but tacos are serious business out here. Secondly, you could actually wear a long sleeveless top and a scarf in December and be warm enough in the afternoon. You thought I was going to say something about tequila didn’t you?!

Get Lucky at Petite Mort

Okay so tequila isn’t so bad either, and it does go quite well with tacos, but that is not the point. This fun loose tank top is one of many Lucky Letter board prizes at Petite Mort. It comes in several mesh sizes, and in my opinion is well worth the effort. The Petite Mort group tag is required for the Lucky Letter boards. There is a one time join fee of 75 linden at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara (2 sizes)

Also, just in case you missed them, Love blogged a few of the other Lucky Letter board gifts at Petite Mort in her posts “Seeing Sepia… Roses” and “Can’t Stop! Too Many Sales!.

Keep Warm at Clawtooth

Clawtooth recently set out this wispy long hairstyle out as a FREE gift. There is no need to join a group, just pay the gift vendor 0 linden. The knit scarf is part of the hairstyle  Along with the hairstyle you’ll get a color change hud for the scarf, and an “Essentials” hair color pack. Needless to say this awesome Clawtooth FREEbie is a must have.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair w/Scarf – Clawtooth: Snug as a Bug Holiday Gift (Essentials) – FREE Gift $0L

Sass and Snowflakes

Warm Winter
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s nearly December?! It seems like just a little bit ago we were talking about Halloween and now Thanksgiving has come and gone. We have been having such mild weather where I live that it doesn’t feel like winter is on the way. I suppose that’s one of the fun things about Second Life, it can be any season you like at any time, and the weather never affects your wardrobe.

Sass

The cute knotted tank top Pru is wearing is a recent group gift at Sass. I love the silliness of the dancing/posing unicorn. Unicorns are always awesome anyway. This FREE group gift from Sass comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours head over to Sass and join the FREE-to-join in world group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There are quite a few group gifts up for grabs at Sass, so don’t miss out!

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya

Exxess

Speaking of cute and awesome, I think this hairstyle from Exxess definitely fits both categories. Not only is the snowflake headband super fun, it also has a color change hud with several preset colors to pick from. The hud also lets you change the color of the snowflakes and the band part of the headband separately. Also, this hairstyle from Exxess is animated! There is a “Breeze” version of this style that has a little movement to the hair which gives the illusion of wind. How do you get your copy of this playful winter hairstyle? You can get it on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. There are two color huds for the hair with tons of color options.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology. This FREEBie comes in the single lovely shade of red shown with two sizes, and an alpha layer. Just in case you missed my previous post about some of the fantastic gifts at the 2nd Anniversary round of Hairology, you can take a look at it here. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Hairology most of the participating designers have a FREE gift available, no group required.

It’s Called Hairology, Chantal

7DS Chantal Close

Chantal

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here, I have a lot to share with you! So rather than ease into the post, I’ll just get right to the good stuff starting with this absolutely beautiful group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins. I love the look of this face on the Catwa Sofia head. Her name is Chantal and she’s the November group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The beauty marks really make the skin for me. This generous gift includes Omega body/head appliers in each of the 7 skin tones. There is also a male skin group gift available. The 7 Deadly Skins group is 225 linden to join at this time, and there are monthly group gifts.
Hairology Gifts

Hairology 2nd Anniversary Gifts

Yep, it’s anniversary time for Hairology, which of course means FREE hair. It’s hard to believe that Hairology is already 2 years old. I can still clearly recall when it was still being planned and put together. In celebration most of the Hairology participating designers have put out some pretty awesome FREE gifts. I know I picked up one from just about every booth and it’s quite possible I missed one or two. Rather than show each and every one, I decided to pick out four personal favorites. These gifts are completely FREE, no group needed, just click the Anniversary cake at each booth and pay zero linden.

  • First, the Pink Hustler gift at Hairology is the cute little knit choker Pru is wearing in each of the photos. This FREE gift comes with a color change hud allows you to change the color of the knit part of the collar, the laces, and the metal bits. Most of the colors are in the realm of pastel, but there are some bold colors as well.
  • Next, the hair pictured in the left photo is the FREE Hairology gift from RunAway. This gorgeous long hairstyle comes with a color hud that includes 9 edgy dip dyed/fade hair color options. There are 3 hair sizes for this style as well, fitted, boobs, and regular.
  • The hairstyle pictured in the top photo and the center of the second photo is the Hairology gift from Analog Dog. I love these extra long wavy braids. With this FREE gift you’ll get the Rampion hair style with 8 color huds. Each hud has several color options. Also included is a set of classic system layer hair bases, and an optional flexi add-on for the wavy ends of the braids.
  • Finally, the hair shown on the right in the above photo is the FREE gift at Hairology from Damselfly. Another long wavy style, this one is more tousled and full. This pretty hairstyle comes with a “Mixed and Faded” color hud that includes 40 (yes 40!) color options, most of which are a variation of blond, brunette, black, or red. The hair also comes in 2 sizes.

Glitter

Lastly, the cute little bodysuit Pru has on is a FREE gift from Glitter exclusively for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This kitty faced pink bodysuit with an applier hud, and classic system layers. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. All you need to do to get your copy of this cute FREE gift is head over to Glitter, make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendor.

Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown

Sullen Girl
Hello There Fab Free’rs! You may or may not know that the November round of Gacha Garden is in full swing, and there are lots of  FREE gifts to be had. I went through a few days ago and picked up most of them, and did a little gacha-ing while I was there. While playing around with some of the gachas and the fantastic FREEbies from my Gacha Garden adventure, I came up with this look. I think she’s pretty in a moody sort of way. All the gifts at Gacha Garden are FREE. You will need to join the Gimme Gacha group, which is FREE to join, and wear the group tag. Then just click the gift boxes next to each vendor and your gift will be delivered.

Chocolate Atelier

While at the Gacha Garden, I picked up the FREE gift and played the gacha machine from Chocolate Atelier. The pretty lingerie is just 45 lindens per play, I got lucky and scored the Rare black version after just a few tries. The whimsical twig crown is the FREE gift from Chocolate Atelier. The lingerie comes in several appliers as well as classic system layers. The lingerie and crown pair beautifully together.

Lingerie Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, TMP

Ayashi

The long beautiful wavy pastel hair Pru has is the FREE gift at Gacha Garden from Ayashi. This lovely long hairstyle comes with a pastel color pack with several pretty pastel options. The style also includes a crown which is not shown. The hair also comes in a regular fit and one for those of us with a slightly larger chest.

LIVIA

Yet another fabulous FREE gift at Gacha Garden is this gorgeous nude lip color from LIVIA. This single color lip gloss comes in several appliers and a Classic System layer for non mesh avatars.

Scar Tissue That I Wish You Saw

Scar Tissue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It feels like it has been a long week already. I am so glad to have this much needed little break to be here and share with you. Thanks for being here. Half the fun of FREEbies is getting to tell you about them!

Vinyl

I am always happy to hear about a new group gift at Vinyl. Group gifts from Vinyl never fail to be awesome. This slightly naughty lifted turtleneck top and matching bra are even cuter when worn than in pictures, at least in my opinion. This gift comes in several mesh sizes, and the top and bra can be worn separately. The Vinyl group is FREE to join at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

EscaleteD

This cute hairstyle includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between several bright bold colors for the ends of this black dip dyed hair.
