No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Kupra, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), MeshBody Legacy

Vintage Modern

Vintage Modern

Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Have you every visited a quaint little bed and breakfast and walked in and fell in love? Then entered the bathroom and said to yourself OMG I want this. The wanting is easy in the real world, but not as easy to achieve the dream bathroom in real life. Not to mention it may not go aesthetically well with the rest of your home décor. Here in Second Life you can have it all! You just have to find the pieces to make it come true. The Muniick Chalet Rue Chabot Bathroom Add-On. Is a great start, if you love vintage bathrooms like I do.

Muniick 60L Happy Weekend

The Chalet Rue Chabot Bathroom Add-On is one of the Happy Weekend 60 linden offers at Muniick this weekend only. This 60L buy will get you the towel cabinet with accessories, a working cabinet door, and touch menu color choices. The set also includes the shower curtain ring for the clawfoot tub (sold separately). There are 4 texture choices for the curtain. Finally, this Happy Weekend offer also includes a décor pack with an un-linkable bath caddy, towels, rug, toilet paper caddy, and a potted plant. If you like the clawfoot tub, and who wouldn’t, it’s also on sale separately for 60 linden. It too has touch menu color change options as well as many detailed features.

Muniick 50L Manly Weekend

To further complete  your Second Life bathroom renovation, check out the Manly Weekend offer at Muniick as well. The 8-piece Chalet Rue Cabot Vanity & Toilet set is on sale for just 50 linden. The set includes the vanity cabinet, mirror, wall sconces, apothecary jars, toilet, and toilet paper holder. The vanity cabinet, and toilet have color change options also. Again, these amazing offers at Muniick are available this weekend only!

Manly Weekend - 50L$

JIAN

Finally, I’m sure you noticed the cute fluffy little rascal settled into his basket full of toys. This Bichon pup is a free group gift at JIAN. This adorable doggy is animated, he (or she/they) has different fur texture choices, and can be named. The JIAN group is free to join so you don’t have to resist bringing this fur baby home. The cute basket with toys means I get to bring him into any room in the house, whether I’m relaxing in the living room, or picking up the bathroom. I hope you enjoy this bundle of fluff as much as I do. Have a great weekend Fab Free!

Halloween Dream

Harvest Dreams

When I imagine the perfect fall feast setting, this is how it looks in my mind. This time of year is my absolute favorite time of year, and I was thrilled to see that Muniick has the coolest Farmhouse Halloween Dinner setting for their 60L Happy Weekend offer this weekend.

With the Farmhouse Halloween Dinner set by Muniick you’ll get a large table and chairs with place settings, decor, and a second smaller table for a more intimate setting. That makes for a total of 10 pieces for just 60 linden! The chairs have 24 PG poses, and give props. Each item is also copy, and modify so you can rez multiples and adjust things like size and tint.

Don’t miss out on this amazing set by Muniick available at the 60L Happy Weekend price this weekend only!

Self Expression

Self Expression

“I’m not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion.
Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression.”
~ Phoebe Philo

Hello hello Fab Free’ers! I’m going to make this short and sweet because one of the finds I am about to share with you is for this weekend only. This gorgeous leather jacket is a Happy Weekend special at LeiMotiv priced at just 60 linden for this weekend only. It comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud that allows you to change the main portion of the jacket, the pockets on the sleeves, and the metal parts.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Adorning my new jacket are several pins from the two free pin sets at Star Sugar. I’ve been eyeing these for a little while now, waiting for just the right thing to wear them with. Pin set 1 includes 16 pins and is free for SLF&O group members. That group is free to join. Pin set 2 has 9 pins and is free for everyone, no group needed. These pins are intended (I believe) for a backpack also sold at Star Sugar, however I was able to wear them with my jacket by attaching them to my chest attachment spot and moving them to the place I wanted by editing them. I’ve included the vendor photos for each of the two sets below so you can get a look at these cute as heck pins.

In a quest to enjoy some sunshine and get some Vitamin D, Blue and I have taken to exploring bright beachy locations. These little excursions have led us to some pretty cool places. Not to mention that the promise of adventure is also probably the best way to get me out of my beloved pajamas. lol

Speaking of not being in pajamas, my colorful t-shirt dress is a free gift by UNA at Second Life’s 17th Birthday shopping event. It comes in rainbow, black, and white. My cute chunky heart earrings are a free SL17B gift by NeverWish. I thought they were perfect with the rainbow “Road Trip” dress by UNA. I’m kind of digging the whole ’80s vibe this look gives. Blue picked up a few freebies at the SL17B Shop & Hop event also. His flip-flops are the free SL17B gift from Native Urban, while the cool ring he’s wearing is the free mens gift at SL17B by Lapointe & BastChild. There’s a ladies version of the ring as well. Blue’s shirt and shorts are both hunt prizes on the AllStuff hunt. His cool floral sleeveless hoodie is a dollarbie hunt prize at Waffles, while his casual linen shorts are a free hunt gift at UnderDog. The AllStuff Hunt ends June 30th, so don’t wait and miss these!

Finally, you can get a little bit of outdoor summer fun in your own backyard by picking up this cool outdoor bar by Muniick for just 60 linden. It’s their Happy Weekend Sales event item and it will be available at the sale price this weekend only. The “Lowel’s Outdoor Bar” from Muniick includes the beer bucket full of ice-cold canned and bottled beer, the bar, and stools. It also has individual and couples bento poses. It’s the perfect addition to your patio or outdoor kitchen.

Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner

It has been getting warmer in my part of the world, and for once I am ready, if not eagerly anticipating the summer. The promise of warm sunny days put me in the mood to add some brightness and summer color to my space here in Second Life. My new cozy little reading corner, also known as Oscar’s favorite place to hoard his tennis ball collection, is thanks to Happy Weekend items from Muniick, and free Stay at Home Club gifts from ChiC Buildings, [QE Home], Kisetsu, and Eclectica Curiosities.

Muniick 

This weekend only Muniick has this sideboard table and hanging picture set out for just 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend sales. The sideboard has 3 color options, and the photo frames have 2 color choices. Each piece is just 3 land impact and can be set out together or separately. Plus, the pretty floral prints feel like summer.

ChiC

The love a good built-in. This bookshelf from Chic Buildings with the sliding ladder has that built-in look and comes in 2 colors. There’s also an empty version without the books so you can add your own items to the shelves, and the ladder is optional. To get your copy, head over to ChiC Buildings and pick up this free Stay at Home Club gift. Hurry, the Stay at Home Club gift at ChiC changes often!

Kisetsu

The cute pastel Japanese tea set is a free Stay at Home Club gift at Kisetsu. This gift will dispense tea, and includes a display tea cup along with the tea set. I think it looks perfect on the sideboard from Muniick, and now I can have a nice warm green tea any time I want.

Eclectica Curiosities 

I really like the soft buttery yellow of this armchair by Eclectica Curiosities. It seems warm and inviting. The chair along with the side table and lamp are also free Stay at Home gifts. The lamp can be turned off and on via touch, and the chair has several solo sit animations.

[QE Home]

The rug, and the pile of throw pillows I stashed in the sideboard table are together the free Stay at Home Club gift from [QE Home]. The rug and pillows each have a few color/pattern choices with a bright bohemian kind of feel to them. The pillows can also be sized via their touch menu. I think they add a pretty pop of color.
