Fabulously Fan(Tastic)

Coming SoonHey Fab Free! I am hanging outside the Fabulously Free in Second Life Info Hub! There’s been a lot of talk about all the free gifts and sales we have over here by Jacx here and Arielle here, but I was admiring the beautiful Halloween decorating at the Hub! It provided the perfect backdrop to show off these cozy fall looks I created. 

Funny, Fan(Tastic) Sweatshirts

Have you all been to Tastic? They have the funniest shirts with amazing sarcastic sayings on them. On the left, the sweatshirt says, “I’ve been ready for Halloween since last Halloween” which is literally true for me. Halloween is my favourite time of the year in SL! This sweater costs only 10 Linden on the Harmony Hunt at Tastic.

The other sweater I am wearing on the right says “Resting Witch Face”. This is not a gift, but it is more in the spirit of the hilarious products Tastic is known for. I have been known from time to time to give that face when I’m not in a good mood. They have lots of other goodies and freebies at Tastic so make sure you check the store out!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

Shoes with Stockings on Sale!

I am enjoying wearing lots of cozy stockings and cute shoes this fall season. I am fashioning some here. 

  • On the left are a pair of black boots with cat-themed stockings. The stockings come in plain, polka dot and striped black, grey, red and pink versions. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. I purchased these at MOoH! with the October gift card worth 150 Linden for group members. MOoH!‘s VIP group currently costs 100 Linden to join, and the boots and stockings are on sale for 50% for VIP members until October 28th.
  • On the right are the “Skelly Socks With Shoes” by ~MystRie~. These are available for 5 Linden on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Legacy, Isis, Venus and Freya. You are looking for a blue pumpkin on the sim to find these!

The Cutest Jean Skirt

The adorable skirt I am wearing in my two looks is a free gift at Free Dove at the Tastic booth. The skirt includes several texture denim patterns and it’s a must-have item! This skirt could be mixed and matched with many outfits. I am showing two textures of the skirt here, but there are more in the texture changer hud included with the freebie.

The Tale of Two Ravens

Coming Soon

There is a funny story behind this post. You might be wondering why I am wearing my dress twice in these two photos… that’s because my original plan was to just show the full version of the Raven dress shown in my photo on the right,  but last- minute before posting, I discovered that Starlight Apparel graciously set out a 1L version of the Raven dress in orange and with black ties- a Halloween edition- for the Bring on the Night Hunt. This hunt ends on September 30th, so get over to Starlight Apparel and hunt for this adorable dress. This was too cute not to show you so I had to snap a pic of the hunt prize. The dollarbie hunt prize comes in the orange colour of the dress with black ties only, seen in my photo on the left. 

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique 
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Ear Blush?

A new trend in new products made for Lelutka EvoX heads is ear blush. I wondered what ear blush is so I had to try it. One of my favourite SL vloggers Novata made this ear blush and it is available for free on the Marketplace. You can even tint the tattoo layer- you can see in my photos how I tinted it in orange to match one outfit and purple to match another. Neat! I guess you could also use ear blush for all the folks out there whose ears go red when they blush. 

Heels @ NX-Nardcotix

The stylish red heels I am wearing are a free gift at NX-Nardcotix. I was delighted to find that they have a couple free gifts for the shoe lovers out there. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Alice
  • Legacy
  • Slink

Enjoy, FabFree!

Besties Pool Party

Besties Pool Party

I would like to introduce you to one of my best friends ever, Swara. We’ve been great friends in SL for a few years now and she is my #1 shopping and chatting buddie. The other day Swara and I decided to have a besties pool party! What a great way to start the summer season. We also found some cute freebies to share with you all that will kick off the summer just right. 

Goodies @ Miix

The first thing I want to talk about is a great freebie available at the Miix event right now. Furtacor usually blesses us with wonderful gifts at this event every month, and they have done it again. This time, the free group gift designed for women contains holdable watermelon drinks, a Bakes-on-Mesh (BOM) bathing suit, and a purse. Swara and I decided to keep the purses away from the pool so our precious belongings wouldn’t get wreaked. We both decided to sip on those thirst-quenching watermelon coolers while we sunbathed in the pool! Swara is wearing the cute BOM swimsuit included in the package.  

 The Miix event ends on June 20th, so make sure you grab up the free gifts before they’re gone. They even have some free Spongebob Squarepants swimming trunks for men out for free!

WATERMELON -  GIFT MIIX EVENT

 

My Pool Gear!

  • The bikini I picked for our party is from Ari-Pari, and it’s a 1 L hunt prize on the Summer Lovin’ Hunt 5. The hint for the prize is, You’ll find me near a hanging jade… not the gem! The ‘kini comes in 10 colours you can change via a HUD and it is sized for Legacy, Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass. 
  • I am also wearing several makeup dollarbies from Bellucci. My eyeshadow comes from their pride makeup set and the lipstick comes from the pack of Hidden Hills lipsticks. These makeups are appliers that work on Lelutka Evolution heads only, and they cost 1 Linden each.

Swara’s Stylin’

I must admit that Swara is rocking it in this look! In addition to rocking that sexy swimsuit, her style includes the following freebies:

  • A couple free group gifts from Spookshow, including the collar and earrings, which are both pride-themed gifts! The Spookshow group is currently free to join. 
  • Her adorable little bracelet is a free gift at Marked. They also have a free pride necklace gift out and several other free group gifts. Most of their gifts are accessories designed for male avatars, but some are unisex.

Those Floaties

I must not forget to mention the adorable pool floaties featured in our pool party! These cute little floaties of narwhals and flamingos come from the pool fun gacha at MOoH!. You can play it at the mainstore and it is adorable. All the items in this gacha are perfect for the summer season and your next pool party! The Pool Fun Gacha at MOoH! costs 50L per pull to play.

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

Rudolph and Snow Bunnies

Rudolph

Christmas is the time for cute things and cuddly animals. I absolutely loved this bunny snowman I found at Paper. Sparrow. The lovely Bunnie Francis must have put it out! I also am in love with this cute reindeer plushie and the outfit I have on. Read below for more details!

Get spoiled by Neve at the Shop and Hop

Neve has eleven gifts out at the shop and hop! What a great offer! They are handing out all of their past Christmas gifts in one big bundle in their booth at the Shop and Hop. I hope you enjoy them! I am wearing the Lumos scarf, which is their newest gift this year.

The rest of the getup…

I have a lot of FREE and under 75 L deals stuffed in this adorable outfit today so I will lay the details out in a list for you so that it is easier to read! Here it is:

  • The beautiful sweater dress costs only 1 tiny linden at Ari-Pari on the Joyeux Noel Hunt. It comes in a variety of colours which you can change using a hud. The hint for this prize is: “Santa has a gift just for you”. This hunt ends on December 31st so you have some time to check it out!
  • The hat is a free advent gift at Ari-Pari. It comes in a variety of colours to match all of your holiday outfits. You can grab all of their past advent gifts on their advent calendar for free at the main store here!
  • The ADORABLE Rudolph plushie is from an exclusive Ari-Pari gacha at The Gacha Life. The Gacha Life event ends on December 31st, so make sure you snatch up the gifts there while you still can.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

I Love You, Amazon

blackfriday
We may not be getting Thanksgiving this month in Canada as we celebrated last month, but thankfully… we still get all the good Christmas shopping sales! The photo above is a pretty good real life example of what my office looks like, (minus the delicious plate of Thanksgiving goodies :/).  I have been up to my eyeballs in holiday lists, being suckered into so many purchases I hadn’t planned on making.  I do have to admit though that this sure beats fighting the crowds for the last tickle me elmo or cabbage patch doll, teddy ruxpin or lego pirate ship or “whatever is the most popular item this year”.

Get It All Online

This Online Shopper Desk set by Flying Arts comes complete with the desk, animated chair, computer, desk lamp, boxes, wrapping paper and even the plate of turkey dinner.  It is 18 prims all together and is available for 1L once you locate the hidden Get Stuffed Hunt icon (which is a cornucopia).  The Get Stuffed Hunt runs until the end of the month.

Happy hunting, Happy Thanksgiving…  and online shopping 🙂

Remember when you used to make Valentine’s cards using paper heart doilies? The lovely group gift from FA Creations reminded me of making cards using paper doilies, ah nostalgia. The gift is this pretty mesh eyelet lace top which includes a pastel color hud. You can pair it with jean like I did, shorts or a skirt would work just as nicely. Its really a versatile and cute top and will be great for summer time. You have the whole month to grab this top for FREE with a FREE group join.

Hot on the Crazy Valentine Hunt trail I snagged these fab Valentine’s shoes from Lindy Modern. They are for system feet and 1L. The hint for the shoes is “CASEY is crazy about Katie!” and I had no trouble finding this prize. I could actually see using these after Valentine’s Day coz hearts are really a year round in my book.

Patchwork Nerd

Snapshot_001Helllooooo Fabulouses! I came across a really sweet hunt prize at Nerdy Girl that I wanted to show off today!  After you locate the Doll Up Hunt Prize at Nerdy Girl and purchase it for just one tiny little linden, you’ll have this super cool Patchwork Skirt!  You probably already have a top in your inventory that will match up great with all of the different colours in the skirt, but I matched it up with a Scoop Neck Sweater that I found in the same shop for 99L that included the Omega Appliers and tossed on my Zenith Spice Leather Bag from the new round of Uber.

The decorative items you see behind me are common pieces of the Apt. B Old & Rusted Gacha offering at Shiny Shabby.  Each play is just 59L which is a sweet deal.
