Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.

We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!

A very Meowy Christmas

A Very Meowy Christmas

It’s Friday, Fab Free! We made it one week closer to Christmas! And Fridays are home to the 50L Friday Sale which has an exciting new Designer participating this week! All good things to celebrate. Plus, I got to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what I want for Christmas… then he surprised me with a new little friend! I’m, of course in love already!

I’m taking us back to the Christmas Wonderland today for one more beautiful gift. My new snuggly top is from Simply Foxxi and I found it for just 1L at the event. I love the fringe and the color is so pretty. You will also get a HUD with seven colors including a snowflake one that is soooo pretty.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Dragon
  • eBody
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

I was stunned and so happy to see that Truth has joined the 50L Friday sales group! My new hairstyle, “Xmas Adore” is their first entry. There were so many people dropping in to grab it, I had to fight the crowd and wait a long time for it to deliver. Popular, much?! But it’s well worth it. You get a “essentials” color pack which has a ton of colors and a HUD for styling and a HUD to change up the bow! Just an awesome special for us Truth lovers.

My sweet little new kitten buddy is also on the 50L Friday list this week from Jian. “Kringle’s Kittens” has twelve sweet babies in stockings, one stocking with three kitties and this little guy sitting pretty on his present. This is perfect for my very ‘Meowy’ Christmas!

Oh a quick P.S…. If you’d like to have your picture made with Santa too, come on down to the Mystic Dreamers Valley and get your Christmas photos!

Good morning, FabFree. I could not think of a better way to start the day, or the week in this case, than another men’s prize for the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt. While you still have until the 30th of the month to gather up your prizes, we are coming down to the wire. So let’s not waste time and get right to it.

NoShot is a designer I was unfamiliar with before the Hunt and I am pleased to have been introduced. Their shop is filled with some very nice designs for both men and women. In fact, they have provided  hunt prizes for the ladies too.  The men’s prizes are the new unique sweater and the low cowboy boots I’m showing here. And I am certainly very happy to add both to my closet. Especially since the sweater is only 1L and the boots are free!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Signature
  • SLink

Boots are unrigged and modifiable.

Hey gang!

We have a lot of fun here on the Fab Free Blog, but today I would like to get serious for a moment.

We know cancer is evil (I refuse to capitalize it), and that anyone can get it, even our beloved fur legged babies.  But did you know cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs?   It is estimated that 1 in 3 domestic dogs will develop cancer, which is the same incidence of cancer among humans.

So when I popped over to Foxwood for something totally unrelated, I saw the story of Ellie, who belongs to the girl who runs Foxwood.  Ellie is her Golden Retriever and Ellie has cancer.  I have lost two out of three of my Goldens to cancer, as well as my beloved Shih Tzu, Tara.  So I know the story all too well, and it is an issue that is very close to home for me.  I never had the chance to help my babies, but Ellie has a chance to fight and we can help her.

The three goldens in my photo, are a set that you can get at Foxwoods for only 75L (they are adorable too!!!  I love the one I can carry around and I’ve had three people say they wanted one too when they saw me carrying her!) and all proceeds go to help Ellie.  We all love the sales and we love the cute sl pets, this is a chance to enjoy both while helping a real pet have a chance at fighting the evil known as cancer.  (I have lost both my parents to it as well).

I’m not sure how long the sale is up for, I reached out but haven’t heard back.  I checked a little while ago and it is still up.

I hope each and every one of you will stop by Foxwood for this cause.  Cancer *can* be beaten, for both humans and our furbabies!

In just ten days Tara will be gone five years and my heart still breaks every single day (and someday Jian will make us a cute set of Shih Tzus so that I can have her with me at least in second life) (I keep requesting it!).  Her and Sumner (my Golden boy I lost to cancer) are pictured below.  I never got to have human kids, and honestly I raised these two from babies and I couldnt have loved them more if they had been human.  They were my kids.

These are the faces of canine cancer, the ones we must fight for.

Sumner (above) lost to Hemangiosarcoma at the age of 9 on 8.29.2004

Tara aka Tee (below) lost to Lymphoma of the intestines at the age of 12 on 11.25.2016

Don’t ScOwl, its Time for a New Fab Free Hunt!

owl_003

Hey there gang!

It’s been a rough week or so for a few of us Fab Free sisters, but there is excitement now on the horizon and, though you can’t tell from my photo, I am doing a HAPPY dance!  This was actually taken before the excitement commenced so maybe I wasn’t all that pleased, still, it’s not every girl who gets to chill with a friend owl!

So as most of you know by know via all the buzz that our most recent Fab Free Hunt is in full swing, and wow!  It’s really swinging!  The designers have gone all out, and the hunters are already having a blast!  I even snuck in a chance to do some hunting and now I am here to show you my finds from one of my favorite places (all the unicorn stuff!  Gotta love unicorn themed outfits!  Well, I do anyway!) Pink Cream Pie.

They have two hunt pries, which you find to get the top and bottoms for this cute atumn-y outfit.  They are 5L each.  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

This hunt is all the rage right now so if you haven’t started the Fab Free Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt, what are ya waiting for!  😀  All the info can be found on our hunt page here.

Accessorize

Accessorize
Hiya, this is going to be a real mish-mash post. But there really is a method to the madness. At least I hope there is LOL.

All About The Accessories

According to “Dictionary.Com” Well-dressed women accessorize according to the occasion. With Fabfree in my corner all these years, I feel Jacx can qualify to be called a well-dressed woman. What is the occasion today you ask? Why very very shortly The Fabfree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt will be starting. And I am giving you a sneak peek at one of the gifts. First off to accessorize you need a base to work with. Stylish and beautiful the Entice Mockingbird 1 piece dress in gold ticks all the right boxes for me, with a mock turtleneck, slit skirt with a ruffle, which will make this a versatile addition to your wardrobe. This free dress is available at The Makeover Room as a group gift. The Makeover Room Group is free to join.

 Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Sneak Peek

This is the part where I go on and on about shoes. LOL. For a change of pace, this will be about how much I love accessories. Scarfs, gloves, handbags, and even animals, but most especially hats. And it was jackpot time in the hat department with Grasshopper St. Porkpie Hat, covered in heathered brown fabric, with a green tartan band and bow. Two small hawk feathers are tucked into the hatband. This description of the hat from owner and creator Mitra Ardwyad beautifully describes it much better than I could. This is one of 3 gifts from Fabfree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt. For 3L this hat can be yours. When I was saying even animals can be an accessory, Jacx was gifted the wonderful Jian Snowday St. Bernard Adult, from a sweet and generous friend. This puppy does not carry booze, just emergency coffee 😛
