Tears in the Rain

Tears in the RainSometimes a girl just needs to be a little dramatic, okay? 

There’s a lot going on right now. One such thing is the anniversary round of Access! Don’t let this one get away from you, there are lots of really fabulous free gifts to pick up. 

Aline already visited here a couple of weeks ago, and here are the things I picked up on my visit that I’m showing today:

  • Free tears by tres beau that went on to inspire this whole mood that I’ve got going on here – a BOM layer for your right eye, left eye, or both
  • Free skin from leLAPEAU that’s a bit paler then I’d normally wear and so, so pretty – it comes with both a brows or a browless version
  • Free top by Palette, with an almost fuzzy looking texture in this peach color and sizes for: Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy, and Perky
  • And last but not least, free applier lipstick by amara beauty in SO many great shades that it’s sure to become an instant staple in your inventory

There’s still plenty of time but don’t delay too long, this round of Access lasts till July 8th. When you get there, you’ll need to join the free group and then there are free gifts at just about every booth. ❤

It Gets So Real Sometimes

It Gets So Real Sometimes

Happy weekend, FabFree! I’m feeling some 90’s vibes today! And that’s the Truth!

Truth

Yeah, that was a bad pun. But Truth has spoiled us yet again with another free VIP group gift hair! Don’t you just love it when a gift hair is exactly what you’d pick out, if you were shopping for hair? That’s how I feel about Eclipse. The free gift comes with an extensive HUD of styling options, streaks, and pages of colors; plus various head and chest sizes. The Truth VIP Group costs 350 very well spent L to join and you can find this gift waiting for you in group notices, no TPing necessary.

Killin’ It

This top is called Millennial and definitely contributed to my overall vibe. It is a group gift from Off-Line. I don’t know if it’s a faux pas to show old group gifts, but I love to! I have this inventory overflowing with goodness, it seems silly to only show the new stuff. Maybe you didn’t know that Off-Line has an incredibly generous wall of freebies waiting there for you, and the group is free to join. The halter that I’m wearing comes with a HUD of other sayings as well as options of plain colors with no words. But I opted for “killin’ it” (I know it’s a bit hard to read in my photo) because it made me think of Sublime and that is certainly another ’90s throwback.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

Heat waves been faking me out

Heat waves been faking me outHi FabFree! I’m just popping in to show you a quick look that is perfect for summer.

Roslyn

I hit Roslyn to pick up the newest free group gift, which is these sunglasses. They’re a classic style that are the perfect finishing touch, plus they come with two HUDs allowing you to make them silver or gold and to change the color of the tint. While I was at Roslyn I saw that there were some other free group gifts out as well, featuring many easy to wear casual outfits and jumpsuits. And yup, you guessed it, the jumpsuit that I’m wearing is one of those other free group gifts. Did ya get an eyeful of the lacing on the sides? It’s just the thing to help you survive a heatwave. It comes with a HUD packed full of 10 solid color options and sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Oh and the Roslyn group is free to join. Nothing stopping you!

AvaWay

One more thing! I know you can’t see it very well in my picture, but the necklace that I’m wearing is the newest free group gift from Avaway. Muriel is pretty and simple and I love it so much! I’ve been wearing it a lot for the past week or so. It’s easy to wear but hard to photograph because it’s really delicate and thin. I’ve included the vendor picture so you can get a better look.

GIFT MURIEL Necklace (AvaWay MAINSTORE)

It comes with a HUD to change the metal color and the shade of blue on the pendant, as well as sizes for Legacy and Maitreya. The Avaway group is free to join and Muriel is a free group gift.

Take Me Away

Take Me AwayI finally made it to Shop and Hop this weekend! I say finally but really it just started on the 16th and there’s still lots of time before it closes on July 5th. I think I’ve made it through 6 of the 20 regions (whose idea was TWENTY regions) and just whoa. This shopping and hopping takes stamina, y’all.

I’m sure you know the drill by now: 20 regions, free gift for Second Life’s 19th birthday in each booth as well as lots of great discounts, no group join required. Type “SL19B” up there on FabFree’s handy dandy search bar and you’ll see lots of great coverage already. Enough words, wanna see what I got? Okay!

Summer Baby

At first I thought this was a bikini. Then a sexy ruffly little summer outfit. And I’m still not really sure but I love it! It is the free SL19B gift from Entice which is located on the Hollyhock sim. It comes in this nice aqua shade (which I’d maybe call more of a seafoam, but I’m not the color police) with the top and bottom being separate pieces.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

P.S. The pose is from a super cute new free pack from Versuta, in case you’re into posing. It’s a free group gift, the group is free to join, and there’s a bunch of other older pose pack up on the wall with it as free group gifts too.

Here In This Minute

Here In This MinuteHappy weekend! My happy place is next to an ocean and I was psyched to put on something cute and free (which surprisingly was not a bikini) and spend some time there!

A Hunting We Will Go

Guys, I tried to do a hunt. If I’m hunting then you know it’s for something really really amazing. As we’ve discussed recently, I’m more of a wait-in-front-of-a-lucky-chair kind of a girl. But this hunt at Luas and Una is so worth it! Aline told us about it already here. There are little golden stars hidden around the sim (I had to get pretty close for them to rezz but maybe that’s just my laptop). You buy them for free, there is no group join required, and there are really lots of excellent prizes. I’m wearing Avery and it comes with a short version of the skirt also, as well as the belt and harness that I’m wearing. The fit is only for Maitreya. I’m not sure how long the hunt lasts, the signs don’t say, but trust me you don’t wanna miss this one.

But Still Glam

Glam Affair is part of today’s Fifty Linden Friday sale. It’s a lovely basic skin line with a bunch of different tones, all with or without brows. 50L today only. You know I can’t pass that up!

She’s So Lucky

She's So Lucky
There’s something relaxing about standing around, sorting inventory and stalking a lucky board. If you’re going to be standing in one place doing a thing, it might as well be a place where you could maybe win something!

Cynful

Recently I spent my time at Cynful. There are two lucky boards so it sometimes takes a bit for them to change, but they are fantastic AND the free prize changes each time a new letter is selected. So it’s not like where you’ve won and you already have it, no no! You probably don’t have the next prize that comes up, and the fun continues. I won a few times but I really liked this dress, aptly named “Something Sexy.” It’s a single color but has a limited HUD to change/remove pantie color and a couple other little details.

Sizes

  • Slink
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Freya

You will need to join the Cynful group to claim your prize, but the group is gloriously free to join. And while you’re there, and since you’re in the free group, you might as well check out the free group gifts. I mean, it’s only logical! They’re right there by the Lucky Boards just begging for some clicking. That’s where I got the necklace that I’m wearing, it’s an older free group gift called Heartfelt that includes a HUD of metal choices and gemstone choices.

Sizes

  • Belleza Venus
  • Belleza Isis
  • Belleza Frey
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass

Pink, it was love at first sight

Pink, it was love at first sightOh hey, this is fun. Free gifts, no group join required, from three great stores, all in one easy to access spot! Fun, right?

The Harika sim is home to three stores. When you TP over, you won’t have to go far to see the things that I’m showing you today. Right at the landing point you’ll find these three free gifts, one from each of the stores. There is no group join required; these gifts are free for everyone! Mirinae offers a really cute set of free poses, complete with mirror versions of each. The free gift from Yumi is this adorable dress, which includes a HUD of solid and pattern color options for both the skirt and the top. I, of course, went with a pink floral because I’ve been feeling pink AF lately, but you can suit your own mood!

Sizes

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

The third gift is a free set of eyes from Oiche which I’m not wearing but they’re really pretty, too. And that’s a wrap, peace out FabFree.

We Never Go Out Of Style

We never go out of style

I used to have a habit of blogging about an event on it’s last day. I still do, but I used to too (RIP Mitch Hedberg). And here we are again friends, because Tres Chic ends tomorrow. You’ve only got until June 10th to tp over and start clicking on gift boxes. There really are a lot of nice free gifts out, it’d be a shame to miss out on them. Here are the things I’m wearing today:

  • Let’s start with this free dress by TO.KISKI – cute and sexy and sweet and all of the things that I love in a dress, all rolled up into one! Sizes:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Legacy
    – Maitreya Lara
    – Maitreya Petite
  • I’ve accessorized with the free necklace by Ecru Couture and this one’s really fun. The HUD allows you to recolor each piece separately to tons of colors for lots of customization, and it’s such an easy to wear casual style. There’s no need to ever take it off! Included is rigged sizes for Maitreya and Legacy.
  • Speaking of fun – free balloons by extra! There’s a bunch for your left hand and one for the right, each of which includes the hold pose.

Tres Chic has gotten it’s fair share of coverage here on FabFree, and for good reason! The most recent post is Aline’s here and she’s got links on that post to the other posts. Links within links, it’s like Inception up on here. Either that or I’m just too lazy to link them all myself. But that isn’t the point! Tres Chic ends tomorrow and you don’t wanna miss it. ❤

Going The Distance

Going The Distance
Ladies and Gentleman, start your engines! Imma be honest with you, I know even less about cars than I do about fashion. But here I am trying. For you, FabFree. Not that it’s very difficult, when the things are so nice and the price is so free.

Vroom Vroom

I acquired this car thanks to the lovely people in the FabFree group chat. It’s a nice window to keep open while you go about your SL – a bit of friendly chit chat, a lucky board or midnight mania to go slap, a freebie someone stumbled across – you just never know what will come up. In this case, it brought me to the midnight mania board at Vix Motors. There is no group join required and the board will lock at 400 slaps. That might sound high, but from what I can tell the board locks every day. The prize changes so you won’t get this exact car probably, but I’ve gotten a few of them and I can tell you that whatever free car you car you get will be nice. Or just go back the next day and try again!

Let’s see, what can I tell you about the car that I’m reclining gracefully upon? It is really pretty. It’s orange. And it’s probably fast but I can’t say for sure because I haven’t driven it. I can tell you that it does come with various HUDs and systems and versions and such. It also includes an assortment of posing by your car type animations, including the one that I’m using here. And, most importantly, it (or one like it) is free at Vix Motors. With just a slap of the midnight mania board it’ll be waiting for you upon login the next day. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Dressed to Drive

Obviously I needed the perfect outfit to wear, and Sweet Willows had my back with this Daytona outfit. It is the currently free group gift for the FabFree group, and the FabFree group is free to join. The outfit includes everything that I’m wearing all as separate pieces – there’s a top, skirt, vest, and boots.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG
  • Slink P
  • Venus

Got all that? Great! Now, who’s ready to turn left a whole bunch of times?!

Yeah I’m Free

Yeah I'm Free

My shopping has been a bit too much “sale” and not enough “gift” lately, if you know what I mean. So I decided that the best way to bring things back into balance would be with a trip to Free Dove!

There was a bit of buzz here on the blog and in the inworld group chat a couple of months ago about Free Dove. The shopping area has been completely redone and updated. If you haven’t been there recently either, goooo. Free Dove is so great, for newer avis just as much as for seasoned ones like me (yes I’m seasoned ahem) who like freebs from great designers. You’ll need to join the free group and then start clicking. Pretty soon you’ll be rolling in free gifts. Here’s what I picked up for this look:

  • Free Top – A perfect summer top, with a fun hippie twist. This fringe top by FurtaCor will be easy to wear all summer and, let’s face it, for some of us it’s always summer SL! Included is a HUD full of colors and patterns to pick from as well as sizes for:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Maitreya
    – Physique
    – Venus 
  • Free Tattoo – I’m not typically a fan of color tattoos in SL, but these are so pretty and feminine and well done! It’s by Vezzo Ink and comes in various shades, I always pick the lightest because I feel like tattoos look a bit more realistic when they’re faded.
  • Free Skin – I might have squeed when I tried on this skin, an audible squee. It’s so lovely and just the fresh faced natural style that I go for. It is by Magnetic which was a happy surprise because they weren’t really on my radar before, but you can bet I’ll be searching for their mainstore very soon. This one is the head and body all together too which is always handy, as well as a shape (which I didn’t try on) and 4 skin tones – each in a brow/browless option and bodies for Maitreya and Legacy.

Yes, it’s a whole lot of free, and all seems right in the world again. ❤
