Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

Twin Cats

Two Cats

Hey FabFree! I have a new feline friend and we decided to go out on a spooky walk together.

To start off, I am showing a few more free gifts from the Halloween Shop & Hop, including:

  • Free eyeshadow from Pout!, which comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included and they are stunning, as is to be expected from Pout!
  • A free HD lipstick applier from Purple for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included.
  • Free mesh spiders that sit so perfectly on your legs from Seance. These are just fantastic! Be careful if you are scared of spiders, as these creep right up on your legs. You do need to join the free Seance group to get this gift, but the gift is in their Halloween Shop & Hop booth.

Two Cats II

  • My striking eyes are the latest group gift from lovelysweet. They come in a darks and lights pack, and they fit all Lelutka Heads, Omega, and BOM.
  • My hairstyle is only 1L from FAGA on the Marketplace. I made the dreaded mistake of leaving the FAGA group when I should have stayed in it, so I was happy that I could pick up this beautiful hairstyle gift for only 1 linden on the MP. I love when that happens. The Mini hairstyle includes an exclusive colour hud of several different colour options.

Two Cats III

  • Lastly, my new cat is the latest free group gift at SEmotion & Libellune. This is an animesh companion, and there are only 8 more days left to get it. It’s so cute!

Have fun, FabFree!

Give Thanks

Coming Soon

Happy Thanksgiving! I am also celebrating Thanksgiving from Canada today, and I got dressed up to go have dinner with the fam later. Cheers! I have some gifts and free prizes to show today too, so let’s dig in!

The Floodgates are Open at TRUTH!

I am happy to report that past group gifts are now available for free for VIP group members of the TRUTH Hair group. There are 28 fantastic mesh hairstyles available as past group gifts, which include full fatpacks. The extensive colour huds and options are fantastic in each style. Most of the packs include style HUDs as well. For many years, these past group gifts cost VIP group members of TRUTH Hair 500L per fatpack, so this is simply amazing that the gifts have opened up for all- especially new members who never got the past gifts. Note that these are the mesh hair gifts before TRUTH started designing alpha hair. Today I am wearing the “Athena” hairstyle, which is one of my favourite past group gifts from this amazing hair creator.

TRUTH will continue to come out with group gifts every few months or so, but any future gifts are only available for the limited time they are available (usually at least 2-3 months), and future gifts will not be available as past group gifts. TRUTH is the absolute must-have group in my opinion because the group gifts are fantastic! It’s just an added bonus that all the past gifts are free for group members now! The TRUTH group currently costs 350L to join, and it is well worth the join fee.

Back To the Board

My BOM lipstick is from another fatpack I won from the free Midnight Madness board at Booty’s Beauty. You need to join their free group to slap the board each day. This lipstick set comes in a full pack of colours in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads.

Have a great day, FabFree!

October Madness

October Madness

Hey FabFree! I have a quick post to show you two awesome weekend sale items, so get a move on and grab these items which are both perfect for October Halloween madness.

The Lantern Hair!

Earlier today, I shared my favourite style from the Doe Street Sale, which you can read about here. While I was at Doe, I also bought their Fifty Linden Friday offer. This hairstyle includes the fantastic witch hat and pumpkin tassel with beads. It’s been out for quite a while for only 50L per pack, so go get it while it’s still available! This FLF deal includes an accessory HUD that lets you change the hat colour, the hat’s ribbon, the pumpkin and the beads to many different colours. Each pack includes different colour options, so grab a demo and have a try at this style which is perfect for the Halloween season.

Back to Slept on Sales

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to blog all the great deals for Slept on Sales lately. Life has just dragged the carpet under me and I got busy (in both worlds!). Anywho, ZFG has some fantastic plaid boots available for 75L per single plaid colour for Slept on Sales. This sale is going on all weekend until Sunday, October 9th. If you want the whole fatpack, it will cost you more lindens, but I believe the fatpack price is also reduced.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

See you soon, FabFree!

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Vintage

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have two lovely vintage outfits from Coveted! to show you all, which are both available for FabFree at Fifteen. I threw in some cute little red mary jane’s too, so come take a look!

Crystal

  • In the first look, I am wearing “Crystal”, the free FabFree gift at Coveted!. Crystal is a cute green dress with crosses and geometric patterns. The gift also includes a little mint ribbon that goes ’round the neck. I really love this outfit, and I have enjoyed prancing around in it this month. The dress and ribbon fit Lara, Hourglass, Freya, Kupra, and Legacy.
  • The adorable little red mary jane shoes shown above are a free group gift at ShoeDiction, and their group is free to join. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP.

Kathleen

  • The second outfit from Coveted! I am showing is the “Kathleen” dress and shoes, which only costs 75L. The dress comes in black with leaves on it with a yellow trim. The shoes are black and they have a bow at the back. The set is sized for Lara, Hourglass, Physique, Freya, and Legacy.

Coming Soon

Cindy

Lastly, the hairstyle shown in both looks is another fatpack I got on sale at .Olive. for 38L. See Adalynn’s original post here to find out all the details about the 90% off VIP sale, and I also blogged another hairstyle from the sale here.

Have a great night, FabFree!

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty

Coming Soon

“Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur. Happy Kitty, Sleepy Kitty, Purr Purr Purr.”

Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory

Top of the morning, FabFree! As I put this post together, I was singing one of my favourite lullabies of all time, called “Soft Kitty”, which Sheldon and other characters sing on The Big Bang Theory. It’s so catchy and you should really go listen to it if you haven’t had the chance yet. I can assure you that life will be improved with this catchy song in your life.

Sexy Kitten Looks

I have two cute outfits to show you this morning from Emerald Couture , which are both available for FabFree at Fifteen.

  • On the left, I am wearing the “June” outfit in pink and leopard print, which is their 15L offer. It includes the top and skirt sized for Lara, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Isis, Freya, TMP, and Fitmesh (XXS-L).
  • On the right, I have the “Lunette Mini Dress” on, which comes in black and red roses and detailing. It’s only 25L! It is sized for Lara, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Isis, Freya, Tonic Curvy & Fine, Legacy, and Fitmesh (XXS-L).

The Sales Continue!

.Olive. still has their whole store on sale at 90% off for VIPs. Adalynn blogged all the details about the sale in her detailed post here, which I am sure you have all read by now. I have spent a few days going back and forth to .Olive. for this sale, because there are just so many available at such a good price! I wanted to show you at least one more before it ends. This amazing hairstyle, called “the Purr Hair” is so cute! It includes the “Beta” colour-changing HUD and a kitty headband, which you can change to several colour texture options via an accessories HUD. You need to be in .Olive.‘s VIP group to get the hairstyles for 90% off, and their group is 50L to join for the duration of the sale. The creator told me that the sale is ending “sometime this week”, so this is likely your last chance to go and get the hairstyles for an amazing price. I only paid 38L for the new fatpacks on the lower floor (like this one). The fatpacks on the top floor are only 20L each.

I’m off the cuddle my cat now! Have fun, FabFree!

Sweet Fifteen

Sweet Fifteen

After putting together this innocent and pretty look, I feel like I’m ready to go back to a coming-of-age debutante ball or a high school formal. Whatever it is, it looks like some celebratory occasion. Happy Sweet Fifteen, FabFree!

Everything in my photo today is from FabFree at Fifteen. I am still basking in all the pretty things the designers made for us.

  • The braided, double-bun, ginger hairstyle is a free gift for FabFree group members at Butterfly Kiss Boutique. It comes in two options: one has a bright orange tone that fades into darker red tones (shown here), and one with dark roots that fade to the bright orange. The hairstyle is unrigged, so you can move it to fit your head perfectly.
  • The beautiful dress is a FabFree at Fifteen exclusive available at Ruxy, and it only costs 69L. It’s stunning! It is sized for Maitreya Lara & Petite and Legacy & Perky. This item includes an extensive colour change hud that allows you to change the colours of the dress and the lace.
  • My pretty mesh nails are a free gift for FabFree group members at Kinky Pinky. They fit Maitreya, Kupra, Reborn, Legacy, Belleza, Alice, Kalhene, and Slink. These include a texture change hud with 6 bright colours.
  • The gorgeous trellis with flowers and lights is the full-priced offering from .Lunaria.. It costs 100L.

Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!
