A Touch of Crystal Magic

A Touch of Crystal Magic
It’s that time of the year for one of my favourite events!  The Crystal Heart Festival is here – complete with magic, sparkles, and about 40 million Sailor Moon references.  It’s always an exciting event to wander around, because there are loads of pretty creations to drool over.  If you’re not in the mood to spend any Lindens though, I’ve got some great news – plenty of freebies to be had!

Space Girl

Everything kawaii, sweet and sparkly is what really attracts me to The Crystal Heart Festival year after year, but I also do have a special place in my heart for Sailor Moon since it was such a big thing when I was in High School.  You’d often find me singing “Fighting Evil by Moonlight…” while wondering exactly why the girls were always dressed as sailors.  Anyway, you don’t need to join a group to pick up the lovely free gifts at The Crystal Heart Festival, just click on the little pink heart-shaped boxes at the stalls (most will have one, but not all) and then revel in the cuteness within.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Hair by Love in 12 fantasy colours and an RGB input HUD
  • FREE Skirt by Loki sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE floating animated orb by Petrichor (it’s soooo mesmerizing)
  • FREE shoes by Exia sized for Maitreya and Legacy

The Crystal Heart Festival just opened, so it’s quite busy at the moment.  If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – it’s running until August 27th

Have fun!

Always Fabulous and Free

Always Fabulous and Free

Heya Fab Peeps!  A bit of FabFree news today (and of course a freebie!).  We’ve moved the FabFree Info Hub to a new location on mainland, through the generosity of FabFree reader (and longtime friend) Eesoov Elan.  When she had an extra slice of land, she decided that donating it to the Fab Fam was something she wanted to do, and for that we’re all rather grateful.  You’re always welcome to come hang out, get information, and just soak up the general FabFree-ness.  A huge shoutout to the lovely Arielle who went all out with her decorating, creating a lovely cozy space for us all.  Also, a huge shoutout to Bunnie Francis who has hosted the Info Hub for the last year – we love you Buns!  Alright Fab readers, come hang with us!

Now to the Freebies

There’s a new free group gift over at Reed – this pretty, and rather fluttery and summery dress in several different textures that can be changed through the HUD.  Just join the free group, and click on the vendor!  You’ll also find a whole bunch of other free group gifts while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Pink Drink

Pink Drink
I have this thing that I often order the most ridiculous drink on the menu.  I don’t mean that it’s a complicated drink, I just mean that it’s one of those things that people look at while you drink it and exclaim “what’s that?!”  which eventually is followed by “is it good?”.  And to that, I inevitably say “Venti strawberry açai refresher with light ice… and yes…it is!”

Feeling Sassy

Time for a new group gift from Sass!  This cute perfect for the beach top and bottoms just screams sunny shores to me.  You can wear the top and bottom separately, and I think the top would look super cute with a pair of jeans too.  To get yours, join the Sass group for 10L then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There’s a whole wall of monthly group gifts, so don’t miss out on those either!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Enjoy!

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

In Need of Therapy

In Need of Therapy

Shopping therapy is 100% a thing, right?  Sometimes when a mood of ickiness is upon me (perish the thought), all I need is a bit of aisle perusing.  I don’t really need to buy anything (though I usually do) to make the mood dissipate.  Though, I think I’ll have to start calling what we do here at FabFree a bit of freebie therapy…

Well Suited

This really cool top and pants combo from Tiffany Designs is giving me exactly what I need today to stave off any potential ick.  The top and pants can be worn separately (don’t you love the detailing around the hem at the bottom of the pants?) and they come with 6 different colour options in the HUD.  Best of all, this outfit is entirely and completely free, no group join required.  Yeap, you heard me right!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Fitted
  • Petite
  • Perky

Now do I really need another pair of shoes? Survey says yes!

Felt Cute

Felt Cute
Felt cute, most likely won’t delete later.  And by most likely, I mean definitely.  It’s Monday, it’s hot out, and that calls for a bit of self-appreciation.  Even if it wasn’t Monday and it was freezing out, we need a bit more time penciled into our schedules to remind ourselves just how special we really are.

She’s a Star

Mmmkay, so how pretty is this lingerie?  I am fairly obsessed with the flower detailing on this delicate bra and knicker set (sized for Maitreya) from Star Outlet.  I got it by joining their free group, then clicking on the vendor by the main desk.  Really a stunningly beautiful set, don’t you think? There are a few other group gifts out too while you’re at it.

Add it On

I also happened to pick up the latest group gift from Eliavah while I was out and about.  These beautiful stockings and matching gloves give a certain air of mystery and romance to my look (or at least, I perceive them to be that way!).  I am pretty in love with the gloves – I’ll be able to use them with all sorts of outfits to give them a hint of the gothic romance!  Anyway, the Eliavah group is 50L to join, and there are two other quite nice gifts to grab as well.

Bloggers at the Beach

Bloggers at the Beach

It was high time to get the whole gang together and head over to the beach.  We clambered into an old beat up VW camper van for aesthetic purposes, all the pups in tow.  Of course, we packed a picnic and sang really fabulous songs from the 50’s all the way to the late 2000’s as loud as we could, with our hair blowing in the wind of our speed, all while laughing at terrible knock knock jokes and reminiscing about the magic of summers gone by.  I love it when we all get together!

Swimwear Galore

As you can see, we managed to get all our full time bloggers together for a bit of sun and sand, and a whole lot of bikinis.  There are so many nice pieces of swimwear to be had right now that we thought it would be fun to give you a smattering of what’s available on the grid so you can have a nice cross-section of goodies to choose from.  Here’s what we’re wearing:

You do know that a massive and super splashy water fight came right after this, right?

Finding Solace

Finding Solace

On days when RL is filled with grey clouds, and perhaps a bit of melancholy, I find solace in the beautiful sunsets and peaceful landscapes of Second Life.  There’s always somewhere to go that will bring you the peace you may need, and for that I’ll always be grateful.

Celebrate a Bit

LSR are celebrating 25000 group members with a new group gift – this sweet romper in a full fatpack of fun textures.  You’ll surely find something to love in the HUD since they range from animal print to ditzy florals and even a few flamingos, as you can see.  The LSR group is currently 99Lto join, totally worth it for access to a wall of group gifts and about a bajillion lucky boards too!

  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

Where do you find peace in SL?

Speechless in the Sun

Speechless in the Sun

Happy Friday FabFree!  After a long week I’m totally ready for a few days of rest and relaxation in the sunshine.  I’m so tired, in fact, that I am at that point of having a hard time stringing sentences together – so instead, I’ll just stand in the sunshine and let the rays work their magic.

It’s Free!

In my meanderings, I stopped over at Evani since they have an item out for the 7 Day Sale.  While I was there I noticed that they’ve also got a free gift at the display out for everyone  – no group join required.  This top and skirt is a good summery option for hot days when you still want to look super cute.  It comes with a great customizing HUD so you can change all the different parts to a whole host of lovely shades.  Plus, the top and bottom can be worn separately.  I assume this outfit is only around during the 7 day sale, so don’t delay!

Bad Habits

Bad Habits

This girl is ready for a day of relaxing, and possibly pondering the long list of bad habits she has acquired over the years. The tendency to enjoy apple tarts, perhaps a smattering of bad listening skills now and then… and forgetting why she walked into a room the minute she gets there.  All in all, nothing too horrible… but the day is still young!

Cozy

This cute top and shorts set is perfect for lounging about, plus it’s just utterly adorable, don’t you think?  I picked it up over at Maai by joining the TeleportHUB group for just 10L.  There are plenty of gifts scattered all over the grid for this group, so the price is well worth it.  Both the top and shorts can be worn separately, so you can get quite a bit of use out of this look.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

75L Makes me Happy

Who doesn’t love a good sale on hair?  I know it’s hard for me to resist when it goes on sale, but when a whole store is on for 75L, then you just have to hold me back!  Moon is having a bit of a retirement sale (the store is NOT closing, they’re just making way for new things).  Every single hairstyle in the shop is currently on sale for 75L, even newer ones!  You’ve got until July 26th to pick up a few – I settled on the lovely windblown Rosier.

And a Pose

Versuta have a new group gift out as well for members of their free-to-join group.  There’s a whole wall of nice poses to pick up, which are great for using in photography or if you just need to stand reeeeeallllyyy still for a while!

Ok, time to go work on some more of these bad habits!
