FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Fiddle Dee Dee

Belle Epoque Teleport hub GG_001

“Oh, dear! My stays are so tight, I’ll never ger through the day without belching!” I’m channeling Scarlett O’Hara today. Father has managed to invite most of the wealthy single men to a barbeque at Tara. Fiddle-dee! My frock covers more of me than I’d prefer but I do have to protect my skin to keep from getting freckled. Luckily I heard about this TeleportHub.com group gift at Belle Epoque. Let me tell you all about it.

You will have to wear the TeleportHub.com group ($10L join fee) tag to snag this one ladies. When you land at Belle Epoque & enter the building turn right. The gift is located on the right side of the wall. You can’t miss it. The Mademoiselle Caroline dress is sized for Maitreya only and comes with this one texture. I like the texture  as it looks oriental in nature. I don’t think Scarlett had a chance to wear anything Asian but I’m pretty sure she would have loved it too.

My parasol (every Southern Belle needs one) is one of the $10L gifts you can find on the Belle Epoque New Year Hunt. The hunt object is a golden 2023 and they are fairly easy to find. You can see the hunt key on the front windows of the store. The hunt runs until January 31.

That’s my quickie for today gang!

Peace, 

Cre

In Memory of Our Fallen Dove

Goodbye Paloma C 002_001

It’s sad to say goodbye to someone has influenced so many of us in Second Life. Also known as Dove, Palomma Casanova, owner & driving force of The Free Dove has passed way. Our dove will now soar high absent from pain or illness. Rest in blissful peace dear. Know that you will be missed.
In her own words(copied from her profile):

“Paloma means Dove in Spanish….
Dove is the symbol of the Holy Spirit
Dove is the symbol of peace
Dove is the symbol of giving & helping.”

You will find several posts about The Free Dove and Palomma on our blog as we pay tribute to her. See Aline’s posts here and here as well as Allison’s post here. I picked up this lovely gown at The Free Dove yesterday. Over the years I’ve picked up many, many items from the place. I couldn’t even calculate how much money I’d have spent on clothing and other items if I hadn’t gotten all of it from The Free Dove. You will need to join the free group to pick up any of the items.

Details:

My free Camilla gown by Black Angel Store comes with a texture change hud with five textures/colors each for the top, skirt, & straps. You do have to join the It is sized for:

  • Classic sizes (xxs – L)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Physique & Hourglass
  • TMP

See you soon!

Jungle Peace

Belle Epoque NYH #2 002_001

I’m searching for peace in a jungle. Not sure I can find peace there but I know I can find solitude. It probably won’t be quiet either, come to think of it. Why the hell am I here? It’s not like I’m hunting down Tarzan or anything like that. Somehow it made sense for a brief moment. While many of you are tightly held in the grip of frigid winter weather going to a jungle sounds like a good plan. I’ve never heard of anyone freezing in a jungle. Have you?

It’s a New Year

Belle Epoque is at it again with another store hunt. That’s always great news. You don’t need the store group to participate in the New Year’s Hunt and each item costs $10L. I’ve got the totally stunning Jemina dress (#2 on the hunt key below) on today. If you’re a regular reader you know that I love animal prints. While I didn’t grab every item on the hunt this one called out to me. I’m just happy the dress ties are done already. Otherwise I’d have to be a contortionist to tie them all. Maybe searching for Tarzan isn’t such a bad plan. I bet Jane never wore a dress like this. Anyhoo, Jemina is sized for Ebody, Legacy, and Maitreya.

I’ve included a hunt key below so you can see what the prizes are.

Belle Epoque New Year Hunt #NYH Key

I Got New Shoes Too!

The other day one of our FabFree members put out a call in group chat for folks to slap the MM boards & check the lucky letters at Tooty Fruity. It was a fruitful trip as I slapped them all and got several cool items from both after joining the free group. I’m wearing one of the items today; the Zori heels. They fit Belleza, Legacy, & Maitreya. Included is an eight texture/color change hud.

That’s it for now dear readers!

Hi There Bud!

Dora Telsiope_003_001

I hope your new year is treating you kindly. I have had one minor disaster after another since January 1st! But I’m still kicking in spite of wanting to kick something or someone. Let me give you an example. I somehow locked my cell phone and couldn’t remember my pin, I drove to the local cell phone provider’s store. I explained to the chick at the counter what had happened. Her response was “You need to call Samsung.” This was followed by me exclaiming loudly, “What part of this do you not understand? I can’t use my phone at all now.” And so it went until her co-worker told her to call Samsung on the landline and let me talk to someone. Thank you for having someone with a brain that works cell phone carrier.

Supa-Sexy at a Great Price!

I can always count on something daring or delectable from Telsiope’s Couture. I quickly became a fan after learning about the store in a FabFree hunt. The latest free FabFree group gift is the Doro outfit. It reminded me of a really cool biker chick look. The revealing top and tight pants fit me like a glove. It might be a wee bit too chilly to ride a bike while wearing Doro. I don’t care because I look super fabulous in it and so will you! Doro is sized for: Belleza Freya, Maitreya, SLink Hourglass, and Legacy. Breaking news from the store: Sitlan placed a “booty win” on the third floor. Bring or teleport four of your friends with you and have a seat to get the “booty”; which is currently the Alice dress.

A couple of days ago I wandered over to Pure Poison and joined the store group. It is free to join for now, There are oodles of group gifts for you to grab. It’s another one of the long-lived stores in SL that has evolved over the years. Once you join the Pure Poison group you can pick up all of the group gifts. Your haul will include tons of jewelry, several pair of shoes, and one set each of lingerie and a bikini. Today I’m wearing the Boho Time Necklace.

On to the weekend fab readers!

xoxo,
Cre

Pump It Up

DS Ghee bodysuit closeup 2_001

It’s the start of a New Year. Yes, indeed. Time to hit the gym to shed a few pounds, and tone up some sexy muscles. I made it to the gym today but watching all those men behind me work out & sweat (not the stinky kind) made me pretty darn thirsty. I couldn’t even think of exercising until I hydrate. Do I get points for just standing here looking fab?

The Right Stuff

Luckily I visited the latest round of Designer Showcase celebrating the 12th anniversary of this event. Most designer booths have gifts in them. You will need the Free to join group. I picked up this sweet bodysuit by Ghee that is perfect for working out as well as looking fetching. The Juliet bodysuit comes in the colors pictured.

Sizes

  • Kupra & Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn.

Why Not?

Okay, some might say my fine looking earrings are a bit much for the gym. I say hey, I have to look fab wherever I roam. The Mahogany Store has the Crystal earrings I wearing set out as a free gift at Designer Showcase. They remind of the old “bling” jewelry back in the old days of SL. They aren’t as primmy as the old ones so you can wear them knowing with confidence that you won’t crash a sim. Do you know that the owner & creator for the Mahogany Store started her SL life as a singer? Not only is she a fine performer, she’s a pretty awesome creator.

What’s your workout style?

It’s a Late New Year Greeting

No_Match GG & posh leutia top 2_001

Hail to the New Year! Wow, time flies in Second Life. I should know as I’ve been here for eons. However, I didn’t come with the grid like a few of my “old” friends. I hope 2023 treats you kindly and that you stay safe/healthy in both lives. I much prefer to celebrate in SL. My cat would rather not be exposed to the fireworks noises. He did watch one of the pretty ones explode until it got too noisy.

New Year, New Hair

I am a hair hoarder. Yes, it’s true. When No_Match announces a new group gift or sales items I am there in the blink of an eye. The newest gift is Candle, this sleek updo with wispy bangs that frame your face. The gift is a fatpack with multiple color/texture change options. The No_Match group has a $50L join free. It’s a great deal when you consider the monthly group gifts, specials, and the huge room full of previous group gifts,

Get Poshed

The current round of the Posh Event runs until January 23rd. There are multiple designer gifts set out in the booths. You do have to join the Free Posh group to pick up the gifts. The neon Posh Girl sign is a Free gift for the group courtesy of [TWC] The Wetherby Company,

Let’s get this year off to a roaring start!

Thinking in Pink!

LSR Jennifer body Suit #2png_001

As Mr. Hankey would say “Howdy Ho!” I have a quickie to tell you about. Then hopefully I’ll be back later today with a glam party look for New Years Eve,

Loving Me Some Pink

When I spied this in Aline’s Fabulous Finds post today it was screaming out my name. And best of all LSR has set this gift out for FREE! All I had to do was activate my Mesh Body Friends group tag (It’s Free to join). The things I love about the Sexy Jennifer outfit are: (1) it’s pink, (2) is a leopard print, (3) it’s a nicely-fitting body suit, and (4) the boots are included! You can’t go wrong with this one ladies (and guys too if you’re inclined).

Sizes for bodysuit & boots

  • Belleza GenX Classic & Curvy
  • Legacy Classic & Perky
  • Maitreya Lara & Petite

Counting Down

Foxton Berlin G&D Heels_001

Can you believe this year is nearly over and done with? When I realized this it was time to take a break from unpacking and reorganizing ye ole inventory. Traipsing around the grid scooping up all the goodies out there has worn this old gal out. I really can’t complain because I love doing it.

Get Thee to Cosmopolitan Now!!!

Cosmopolitan designers are once again spoiling us with tons of gifts. You do need to join the free Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group. The start clicking on all of the lovely baubles hanging on the tree near the entrance. I picked up all of them, of course! I don’t know how much longer the gifts will be available so scoot over there if you want them.

Today I’m relaxing in this cute number from a new to me designer, Foxton. The Berlin outfit comes with a color/texture change hud that lets you change the shirt, skirt, belt, top, and shorts.  The styling is trendy and easy-going. You’ll love wearing this one. It is an all-in-one outfit though it looks like it has several pieces. The hud lets you pick from the following body sizes: Ebody, Legacy, & Maitreya.

My sandals are also a Cosmopolitan Advent gift from G&D. The Namika Sandals are tres chic! They are fitted for Belleza, Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya, and SLink. A fatpack hud containing beaucoup colors comes with the sandals. Another great score!

Don’t miss this last chance to get all the Cosmopolitan gifts.

TTFN,

Salesbuster

Coming Soon

Get on those Black Friday deals, FabFree! The sales are going on all weekend. Have you checked out the FabFree Black Friday Sale Listing yet? It’s amazing! Props to Aline for putting that list together… I’m about to go through and check them out! I did dip into some of my favourite stores’ sales already though and wanted to share some insight on what they have going on this weekend…

Doorbuster!

Today I am showing a Black Friday offering from Blueberry. Blueberry is having a 50% off sale at their mainstore and on their Marketplace store through the end of Cyber Monday. Even better, Blueberry has a “Doorbuster” deal out for the occasion. The deal is a winter edition pack of their Poppy Leggings on sale for only 75L for Black Friday weekend only. The leggings include 24 new winter patterns and some classic colours are also included. The leggings have been updated for a variety of bodies, and I believe the leggings will work with other huds in the past made for these leggings. For the Blueberry addicts out there, you know what I’m talking about. 😉 They’re awesome!

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass

The hairstyle I am wearing is called Viviana in an exclusive pack, one of the brand new group gifts. Aline blogged all about their free group join and their other group gifts here, so make sure you check out her awesome post.

Have a great night, FabFree!

Xmas is Here

Xmas Is Here

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… yes, maybe for some Xmas starts after Cyber Monday but for me it starts today because technically Black Friday is over. Bring on the Xmas season! There are only 29 days until Christmas and the countdown is on! I put together a fun Christmas-y look today to bring in everyone’s favourite season. Well, it’s my favourite season this year, anyways,  because looking forward to Christmas and spending quality time with family is giving me something positive to look forward to and I really need that this year.

A Lovely Dress

First off, I have a great prize from the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt to share with you all. My dress is the prize from Vips Creations. It costs 5L and it includes a HUD of floral prints and plain colours including white, black, red, pink, and magenta.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Lara & Petite
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya Venus, Isis & Freya

Get it Quick

I debated mentioning this, as this one is a very limited-time offer that may poof, so get it soon. My eyeshadow and lipstick come from a full set of applier makeup that is currently only 1L at Orsy Event.  This gift is from Opulein and it includes a full pack of makeup with different colour options. It’s stunning. The event is supposed to be over, but the 1L gift is still available. Grab it while you can as well as the other dollarbies on the wall before they disappear for good!

Sizes Included

  • Lelutka EvoX

Xmas Is Here II

Oh Christmas Trees…

And now for some cute Xmas decor to bring in the Christmas season. The awesome wood Christmas trees shown in my scene today are from Noveny, a designer that always has creative decor available.

  • The large wood tree with snowflakes stenciled on it and a rusty gold star is their latest FabFree group gift. The Fabulously Free in SL group is ALWAYS free to join.
  • The blue, green, and red flat wooden trees are the latest group gift at Noveny. Their store group currently costs 30L to join.

Bring on the Christmas fun!
