Spring Dreams

Spring Dreams

I’m starting to see it on my FaceBook feed now. People talking about Spring and warmer weather. The Seed Catalogs will be arriving soon and gardeners everywhere are waiting by the mailbox. I’m still in love with winter but … I guess I can have a few spring dreams too.

Spring Dreams

WellMade is clearly dreaming of Spring and warmer temps too. This scrumptious little sun dress is Fabulously named the “Fab Dress”. Well named because it’s WellMades Fabulously Free Group gift!

So join our group , wear your tag and go get your dress! Which, by the way, comes with a HUD for three sweet colors if purple isn’t your thing.

Take a Moment

Take a Moment

There are days… sometimes several days when life seems to conspire to run you over. I think my weekend was one of those times. So I am just hiding out with a cup of good coffee and a cozy fire in the fireplace. The best thing about my weekend? I found a sweet new free gift from Loki. And it’s free for everyone!

More Pink

This is the simply named ‘Pink Flowers Sweater” from Loki and you can pick it up for free even if you aren’t a group member. I love the rumpled sleeves and the off the shoulder look. It’s really beautifully made all over. Sometime life calls for simple yet beautiful things, doesn’t it. Loki has you covered with this comfy sweater. While you don’t need to be a group member to pick up the sweater, I encourage you to join the group for loads of great gifts.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

So Shiny

So Shiny

Good Evening, FabFree! Monday the 13th… now that’s my idea of an unlucky day. Well, except that 13 has always been a lucky number for me… and I don’t mind Mondays. Okay, I don’t know where I was going with this except that I played some Gachas over at Shiny Shabby and I got lucky and …. unlucky.

Go for Gray

Anyway.  I hopped over to the Shinny Shabby to see what they had in store for us today. Lots of really gorgeous things, I even spent some “real” lindens. But there are a lot of lovely free gifts set out by generous designers too. Just join the free Shiny Shabby group and collect the presents at many of the booths. I was tickled to see that !gO!, one of my favs, had a gift box for us some I hurry over to the booth. And, of course I fell in love with the beautiful Jola Gacha.

The delightful dress and vest combo comes in five colors as does the fur coat. You can also win heels and matching shoulder bags ( not shown )  The shoulder bag I am showing is !gO!’s free gift to everyone! Just join the free Shinny Shabby group and pick up your gift. My unlucky came in that I couldn’t pull the Rare… but I’m happy as can be with my winnings!

Sizes Included for the Jola Gacha

  • Belleza Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Pastel

Pastel

Hey FabFree! I’m taking a day off from searching the Grid and teleporting hither and yon. January is such a good time to just cuddle up someplace warm and read a book. I tend to “nest” on days like this. Lots of pillows and soft blankets. Maybe a nice hot cup of tea or cocoa. Doesn’t that sound delightful? Oh, and of course, you have to have something super soft and cozy to wear, right?

Soft Pastel

The Annex has me covered with that last one. This is the “Lynn” dress from Annex and it’s the current free gift for members of the Teleport HUB group. I love the soft texture and the pastel pink. Doesn’t it look like it made of that fleece blanket material? Perfect for a winter day inside.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Now, I’ve talked about the Teleport HUB Group before but let me refresh your memories. You can join Teleport HUB at any shop that offers the group gifts and it will only set you back 10 little Lindens. That one time fee will open up a huge selection of designers offering lots of gifts.  I have noticed the many designers do leave the Teleport Hub gifts up a bit longer than a regular group gift. But I don’t mind a ‘relaxed’ renewal no and then.

All in One

All in One

Hello again FabFree. There are a number of creators and designers across the Grid that can be counted on for well made, creative designs for the gentlemen of Fabulously Free. Amazing Creations is certainly one of those!

 

In addition to the lovely ladies gift we saw here,  Amazing Creations has provided this casual winter’s day outfit for the men. This look is put together as one piece for ease of dressing. I found the fit to be spot on for Belleza and I imagine the other styles are just as well fit. I also appreciated the fact that all my movements did not produce the weird angled folds that some men’s wear is plagued by. Thank you, Amazing Creations.

Sizes Included

  • Adin
  • Belleza – Jake
  • FitMesh Classic
  • Onupup
  • Signature
  • SLink

Making Sense of It All

Making Sense of it all

It’s hard to believe that the Holidays are quickly coming to a close. I was just filling stockings and now I’m planning for New Years eve. Now, in Real Life, the Hubby and I are more cuddle up for a movie marathon with some sparkling cider and kisses at midnight. But on the Grid… I wanna be the one sparkling!

Like Love said… Sparkle on

The Sense Event is celebrating a bit early for New Years but it’s their 2nd year anniversary so why not? Many of the Designers are helping to celebrate by putting out fun free gifts for us. I have to admit, I almost skipped Celestina’s Weddings gift. I figured it would be something wedding related. Just goes to show, never judge a book by it’s cover. CW has given us this gorgeous violet cocktail dress and all the sparkle you could ask for to go with it. You’ll get not just the dress but also the two rings, the earrings and the brooch. And every piece is just spectacular. I can’t keep everything I pick up in my search for Blog posts…but I’m keeping this!

Sizes Included

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

Strike a Pose

My sophisticated pose, that just happens to show off my new rings perfectly, is from Crystal Poses. Simply named “Single//1”, you can pick up the free pose at the Sense Event as well. Just join the Sense event Group, which is free to join, and you can help yourself to so many gifts it’s almost like Christmas all over again.

A Little Bird Told Me

A Little Bird Told Me

Heyya FabFree, happy Friday. Hopefully some of y’all are still on Christmas break. Back to work for me. But I don’t mind at all. Cause I mean I’m back to work here at Fabulously Free! And even though Christmas is past… the frees and gifts never stop.

A Little Gift

I stumbled across this great little cozy top on the Marketplace as a free for everyone gift. This is the “Xmas Gift Collared Sweater” from Bearcat.Egg, a totally new-to-me Designer. You get two equally cute versions of the shirt. One with the little red bird and one that has “Merry Christmas” in vintage script across it.  This is a “limited” version of the shirt but it’s not that limited at all. This free gift has no note as to how long it may be available. So hurry over asap!

  • Classic – Medium
  • FitMesh – Medium

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gadzooks, FabFree! It’s already Christmas Eve. Okay, be honest, how many of you were running around today doing the last minute shopping? I , personally, plead the fifth! 😉

Happy Christmas Eve Gift

Back when I was a kid, my folks always let me open one gift on Christmas Eve. I agonized over my choice each year. Even though I’m not a kid anymore, I got a great Christmas Eve gift to open. Truth has given all of us Group members a wonderful Holiday gift with this lovely new hairstyle – Eternity.  The gorgeous updo come with “addable” bangs to suit your taste.

Treating Myself

I grabbed this super cute top as a holiday gift for myself. “Rosie” is the latest Group Gift from Sweet Thing. The gift comes with three colors of the blouse all with the gold holly print. I liked the black best for the sparkly contrast. Once you join the free Group, check out the other past Group gifts available. Some of them require 1L but you get it right back.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza _ Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass,

 

Most of all…. Gabriel and I wish all of you the most wonderful Holiday Season. Love your friends and family, Celebrate with joy and feast with abandon! Happy Holidays to All of the best Readers on the Grid!

Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

FabFree: Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

Hey there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but during the hectic holidays I think it’s a good idea to create a little hideaway from everyone else just for little breaks here and there.  I have created one in SL too, although I am not sure what I am hiding from here!  There is a lot of fun and free stuff in this picture on my avatar, and around it, and I’ll do my best not to get too wordy below and keep it to the point as well as make sure I add in direct TPs to those Shop & Hop locations ;).

My Holiday Look:

  • My outfit today is put together using the Caroline Plaid Skirt in Red that you can pick up at Safira under the Christmas Tree with your group tag activation (50L to join).  It also comes with a chain and leather belt, however, I attached a cat and it fell off…
  • I have paired it up with the Evie Glitter Top available at Shop & Hop as a free gift.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to match the sparkles to whatever you are wearing, and they do… indeed sparkle!
  • My necklace is Cae’s Bauble Necklace and it comes with earrings too and a texture change HUD too.  You can find this at Shop & Hop as a free gift.
  • I’ve got Alaskametro’s Shop & Hop Gift –  Time Square Eyeshadow on my eyes, and it comes in several different colours.  My lipstick has been blogged before, but it’s a free tester called Crimson at the Alaskametro store too, in case you are interested.

 Top Secret Hideaway Corner:

I started this little corner with the Mean Pillows by Lybra available for purchase at Santa Inc. because they cracked me up with sayings like “For Christmas I wish you the best… alone time” and “Christmas is where you are… not”.  After I had those all settled, I added a couple of free gifts and of course the cat and a stack of books:

  • {what next} Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake – Comes with both the cake and the single serving plate decor. – @ Shop & Hop Here
  • Schadenfreude Ornaments in Kore Pedestal Bowl  – Comes with texture options. – @ Shop & Hop Here

After that… all that was left was to hide in it 😀

Come Together

Come Together

All Together Now

All this together-ness isn’t just in my mind. Applique Chic has bundled their free gifts for both girls and guys together for the Peace on Earth Hunt. Yep, the hunt is still going on and there are soooo many great gifts… but Gabriel and I HAD to show off this matching set of “Very Merry” sweaters, skirt and jacket.  The ladies’ set comes with the sweater, leggings and skirt all as separate pieces so you can wear them as you please with other things from your wardrobe. While the guys set, the jacket, sweater and under shirt, all come as one easy piece.
