Back on the Art Thing

Back on the Art Thing

During my years with FabFree, lots of fun things have happened.  Other than massive piles of freebies that now pad my inventory and make it groan, I’ve met some great people, made some really close friends, and taken more pictures than I can possibly count.  Once in a while, someone comes along and really makes me smile and realise that FabFree is a special thing to be a part of.  We’re not really just a blog, we’re a community of people who love to share what we find, and sometimes even make something to give right back.

Tess

Therese Carfagno is an avid reader of FabFree, and she always takes the time to comment on our posts (which we totally love, by the way).  She currently has a really awesome art exhibition going on that features abstract photos comprised of gorgeous, swirling colours.  Therese knows that I am not always a massive fan of modern art (sorry again to all the aficionados) but she took it upon herself to make a little something that would make me smile, and that I could share with all of you as well.  You’ll see two of her masterpieces behind me, the one on the left something classical to tickle my fancy (it’s called For Aline…squee!) and the one on the right that has done a rather good job of convincing me that modern art sure can be pretty.  You can pick up both of this pretty items for just 1L each – and do take a look at all her other awesome work while you’re there.  Oh, and if you’re wondering what she’s talking about regarding a hamburger, you can read my post HERE.

And the Outfit

Recently, Promagic announced a new free group for their fans, and with it came the bombshell announcement that there are 100 gifts in their gift room.  There are some really pretty items to be had.  Today I’m showing off the Amor Dress and Bra, that comes with a rather extensive HUD to change the colours, and the Dua heels that snake up your legs and sparkle in a rather appealing way. You’ll find loads more in the Promagic gift room!

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Last tricks, last treats

Last tricks, last treats

Halloween is coming to a close, so I spent the day gathering the last bit of treats on Second Life.   I went to the Halloween Sales event where I found this great Paloma fishnet bodysuit by ToG for free.  This is just one of many free gifts that are in pumpkins tied in black ribbons outside of almost every vendor’s booth.  I also found this great Freyr face tattoo by Fallen Gods.  It comes in both gold and black BOM.  Halloween Sales is running until November 4th, so you don’t want to wait to long to get all your free goodies.

Since the bodysuit is a bit revealing, I needed some pasties so I could wear it outside.  I found these free pasties from Mad’ on the marketplace.  The pasties come in both white and black options as well as BOM and applier for Maitreya, Omega, TMP and Lola.  To finish the look, I picked up the Softgirl Makeup Set from Heartful for free on the marketplace for my eyeshadow and blush.

An Exploration of Nature

An Exploration of Nature

When I was little, my parents often took me to parks and conservation centres to explore.  I loved walking on little hidden paths through the woods where you could imagine that there were no people about, and that you were the first to discover this place.   I loved the quiet peace of these parks, and trying to block out the noise of the city (even though it’s a bit quieter than usual right now!) is something I’m working on in my mind today.  Where’s your peaceful spot in SL?

Still Staying at Home

I know the days seem to be going on and on, but I hope you’re all out there staying strong and staying safe.  Happily, The Stay at Home Club continues to drop awesome gifts on us every single day!  How cool is that?  I’m showing off two items today that were recently added, and they’ve got me feeling spring-like and cheerful.  Here’s what I’ve got going on:

  • FREE top and skirt from Ghee sized for Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE pose by OMY with 3 different poses in the box

No group join required for these cool gifts, and don’t forget to check out the Stay at Home Club’s website for all their newest additions!

Ah, the joys of Spring…

Love and a Cat


Love and a Cat

Hellooo Fab Free! I missed you! I had a busy weekend and just a busy February in general, but it has been good and productive so I can’t complain. As February begins to come to an end, so do most of the February hunts. One such hunt is the Cupid’s Crush Hunt. This adorable little tank top by Ghee is one of the Cupid’s Crush Hunt prizes. I also couldn’t resist the chance to share with you the 10 linden offer at the Truth or Dare Affair by EscalateD. Keep reading for all the info about these two fabulous finds.

The Hair – Spring is on the way and I love this shaggy short hairstyle for warmer months. This hairstyle is the 10 linden item by EscalateD at the Truth or Dare Affair event. It comes with 3 specialty mini huds to change the texture/hair color. The Truth or Dare Affair ends February 28th, so don’t wait.

The Shirt – The Cupid’s Crush Hunt also ends in just a few days on February 28th. It is a 2 linden hunt, so all the prizes are just 2 linden. This cute tank top is the CCH prize by Ghee. It reads “All you need is Love and a Cat” and I couldn’t agree more with that statement. haha This 2 linden hunt prize comes in several mesh sizes and has an alpha layer included making it wearable for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Them Lips

Them Lips

Hey, fabulous readers – I hope you’re not tired of seeing teeny, weeny bikinis here at Fab Free because I’ve got another one to show you, lol! 😀

Feeling Glam and Tan

La-tee-da, SL life is keeping me sooo busy. I mean, lounging by the pool sipping cocktails is just exhausting, you know?

KIDDING.

But seriously, I’ve been spending so much time in the sun lately that I managed to get a really awesome tan. Actually, I’m still a little bit sunburned, but that’s ok. Totally worth it.

And you know what? YOU can get this awesome tan, too. Because it’s a gift. From Glam Affair. 🙂

Remember a couple of days ago when Love showed you the latest Glam Affair group gift, which included the Masha applier for Catwa heads? Well, there was also an applier for LeLutka heads in the box, and it’s super cute!

Like Masha, Rachel Sunny Day has a bit of a rosy sunburn. 4 brow colors and a “no-brow” option are included, as well as 3 variations of freckles and moles, and 2 extra face contour options. A Sunny Day body applier for Maitreya is included in the box.

Rachel is so pretty that I can see myself wearing this skin for the rest of the summer. I love the tan lines!

Strings Attached

Like I said, in case you haven’t seen enough sexy bikinis, here comes another one!

The String Bikini with Mini Sarong is the July group gift from Ghee. The bikini comes with a HUD containing 6 different color textures, and you can color the top and bottom separately if you so desire.

The whole outfit comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Two Lips and a Cocktail

Merak set out the Lips Floatie and Cocktail as their latest group gift. The floatie comes in 3 options: still, rotating, and another for a standing pose. Several cute animations are included. The cocktail can be added to your avatar with or without a pose, or it can be rezzed to keep handy nearby.

Because you never know when you’ll need a summer cocktail.

GROUP GIFT AT MERAK

Ok, back to work for me. As you can see, I’m sooper busy today. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

First Stop: Coffee

First Stop: Coffee

Hey there, fabulous readers! I hope you all have been well since I last “saw” you!

I’m back on the blog after taking a bit of a break, and I’m looking forward to sharing my favorite freebies with you.

But first… I had to stop for coffee.

Summer in Stripes

I’ve been noodling around SL for a few days in this cute summer dress from Ghee.

The Summer Stripes Dress is the May group gift (still available). It includes the belt and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The colors would be perfect for Flag Day or a 4th of July party… or just to lounge around your fave summer hangout.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now. Lounge around. And drink coffee. 🙂

Enjoy!

❤ Serena
