Create Your Own Heat

Create Your Own Heat

Well hello there Fab Free!  I am feeling a bit daring, sultry and crazy in my look today.  Maybe it’s the fact that it’s now snowing in my part of the world (Oh, Canada….) and I feel like I need to rebel against said cold by creating a bit of heat in my own way!

The Garden of Gachas

We’ve told you about some of the delights of this round of the Gacha Garden HERE and HERE, and I am pleased to report that there are goodies yet to behold!  I did my best to avoid playing any of the awesome gachas (and failed utterly) but while I was there I picked up some really fun and free gifts.  To get them, all you have to do is join the Gimme Gacha group for free at the landing point.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE bodysuit by Antaya sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Hair by Limerence
  • FREE body shine by Stargazer Creations with appliers for Legacy, Maitreya, Omega Evolved and Catwa

There are loads of other goodies to pick up while you’re at it, so make sure you check out the Gacha Garden!

Hello Fab Free, I hope all of you whom experience changing the clocks back are surviving the adjustment. It can be wild how much difference just one hour makes. As for me, I found myself indulging in the latest group gift at MINIMAL, and enjoying the furniture and décor set Petite Mort has at Gacha Garden. Retail therapy really can help, even with the grogginess of a post time change haze. That’s my story anyway. Keep reading for all the “wheres” and “hows” or scroll to the end for the full credits. Thanks Fab Free’rs!

MINIMAL 

I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with this new group gift backdrop by MINIMAL. It has a sea-side villa vibe that sets it apart from a lot of the similar backdrops I’ve seen. It also sits high off the ground which gives it the feel of being part of some ancient hilltop villa. To get your copy of this beautiful backdrop you’ll need to join the MINIMAL group. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Fine Fall Friends

Fall Friends
Happy Weekend, FabFree Folks! Don’t you love that Fall is really here? Even way down here in South Texas, we’re seeing colors in the trees and it’s been wonderfully cool. This is that picture perfect ‘Back To School” weather isn’t it?

On the gO

!gO has the perfect school girl or college girl outfit in the Adela Gatcha over at the Gacha Garden. I am in love with the soft fuzzy sweater and the prim and proper neck scarf. At only 75L perplay I was ready to play for along time. But I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares in just a couple of plays! The rare includes the armful of books with a scripted hold pose. Other than that, the commons are just as nice as the rares. Something I really appreciate. But since I had two cute looks… I called Aline to come help me out. So here we are reliving our college days…. if we had lived in Europe… and had loads of private school money … 😉

Sizes Included ( Sweater, Skirt and Scarf)

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

Curls for Days

As usual, many of the venders at the Gacha Garden have put out free gifts for the free Gimme Gacha group. My luxurious new locks are the gift from Analog Dog.,  This is “Mali” and you get the full color fatpack when you pick up the gift. There is also a styling HUD to change how the hair lies on your shoulders. The curls are just gorgeous and with every color under the rainbow, I bet you’ll find one that’s perfect for you.

Golden Hour


Golden Hour

Hello Fab Free, thanks as always for being here. Petite Mort has done it again and put out an absolutely gorgeous must-have furniture and décor set for Gacha Garden. I’ve also got a cute little kitty friend from JIAN to share with you. I hope you love them both.

Petite Mort

Gacha Garden recently started, and once again I can’t get over the furniture and décor collection by Petite Mort. It is just 50 linden per play and there are 11 commons and 1 rare. The pillow basket is a Gacha Garden exclusive that is awarded after 20 pulls. The chair has 10 sit poses, and several of the items have resize scripts. I have included the gacha key for this set so you can see all the pieces. The lamp and chandelier are not shown in my photo.

JIAN

The adorable sleeping kitty in its funny fish bed is a free group gift at JIAN. Though not super recent it is one of a handful of free group gifts available. This particular gift lets you pick from several fur patterns for the cat, and 3 texture choices for the fish. There are also resize scripts. Lastly, there is a fun animation that makes the cat appear to yawn and stretch that can be turned on or off. The JIAN group is free to join.

Nostalgic Record Store Day


Nostalgia

Hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog, I hope you’re ready for some sweet nostalgia via the Record Store Day gacha set by Petite Mort for the current round Gacha Garden. Don’t hate because these items are gachas, I promise I would not share them if I didn’t believe they were well worth the effort. The moment I saw this Record Store Day set by Petite Mort I had to have it, and honestly am so excited to share it with you!

Collecting records goes deep for me. I have so many great memories from childhood on up through recent years of listening to music on a record player, and of buying albums. Then there’s that crackle before the music plays, looking at all the artwork on the albums, the feel of the vinyl, it’s a little bit like magic in my world. I’m so glad Love was able to get together with me to create this photo, and help tap into all those awesome memories and share this set with you. This second photo is her version of this visual story.

FabFree: I got your back

Coming back from memory lane, and returning to the actual gacha set, this too cool set by Petite Mort is just 50 linden per play at Gacha Garden. There are 14 commons and 2 rares.

All the clothing items are sized for the following bodies: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), and Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus). You can see the tote more clearly in the ad above.

The TRUTH and secrets

FabFree: The TRUTH and secrets
Good morning FabFree Readers! If you can’t trust your best girl with your secrets, who can you trust right?  Pru and I are constantly buzzing in each other’s ears about this, that and the other thing and last night was no exception.  She was so excited to tell me about the new TRUTH group gift that she teleported right over to show it to me.

Of course I was already wearing it too, because who doesn’t put on their new TRUTH gift as soon as it comes through, right?  Pru arrived with her hair styled down with no shoulder tendrils, while I had mine styled up with the falling shoulder tendrils.  It made me giggle a little, because it’s a perfect explanation of our friendship. We may look at fashion and style in completely different ways, but we are on the inside the same kindred spirits most often on the same wavelength.  It was after all the perfect way to display the gift.. differently!

About the latest gift

The TRUTH inworld group does have a join fee of 350L (which is roughly the cost of a single pack of hair these days!), but in the group charter promises 12 gifts per year, and in the past most of these gifts have been full fatpacks with stylist HUD systems!  This new gift by TRUTH is called Kaijah and includes all the colours along with a butterfly headband and several options in the hair stylist HUD.

The Rarest Bloom

The Rarest Bloom

The most rare of flowers is not the one that is expensive, or impossible to find, but the one that you feel special receiving, or the one that you treat yourself to.  I am all about Lavender – piles of it stretching off into the distance in fields, or sweet smelling under my pillow.  For today though, I am draped in electric blue and ready for adventure!

Anti-Valentine

Safira is having a hunt!  There are all sorts of fun goodies to pick up, all priced at just 15L each.  There are deep red lovely Valentine gifts, as well as black versions for those who are feeling averse to the holiday of love.  I grabbed item number one of the Anti-Valentine variety.  The Carla outfit comes in two parts – the really cute skirt and super sexy top, and there’s also a checkered version if you’re feeling a bit sporty.  So awesome, right?  Hurry over to Safira – the hunt runs until February 15th, check out all the prizes below!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Queen of All You’ve Seen

I’ve topped off my look with this exuberant flower crown by Yokai that I got for absolutely FREE over at the Gacha Garden.  There are so many gifts to pick up, I’m sure you’ll find something else you fancy too!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group at the landing point and click on the bajillion boxes!

What’s your favourite flower?

A Little Old Place Where We Can Get Together

To the Moon and Back

Hello There Fab Free’rs, welcome back to the blog! The Gacha Garden event has started. So needless to say I have a gorgeous bohemian furniture and décor set, complete with the house for everything to go inside to share with you. I’m not often much of a “gacha” person, but I do like gachas as a way to get beautiful furniture and décor pieces. This set is by none other than Petite Mort. I’ve always been a fan of the boho style in both clothing and furniture. This set is just 50 lindens per play at Gacha Garden. Petite Mort also added an exclusive prize set of houseplants (not pictured) to this set that is awarded after 20 pulls. The seating, and the Rare bed all have PG couples and individual poses. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key for this “Love Shack” set below so you can get a second look. Happy Gacha-ing!

Autumn Classic

Autumn Classic

I’m still unpacking and “oohing” and “ahhing” over all the great free gifts from the Gacha Garden. I may have made a silly little “eeee” sound when I saw this lovely dress from Unrepentant. Doesn’t it have a classic late 1960’s , Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibe?!

Avril Autumn

This is one of the three free Avril dress you’ll find in the FREE gift from Unrepentant. Yes, I said three. Each dress is the buttery Fall yellow and brown but the other two feature the cute kitties from the Avril Gacha. I found the dress to be very well made and the fit was perfect.

Sizes Included

  • One Size – FitMesh

The Gacha Garden is a wonderful place to find affordable Gachas and a ton of free gifts so don’t miss it! Oh look, here’s your TAXI!

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!
