The First Dive

The First Dive

We’re inching toward the time of year where I generally refuse to be out of a bathing suit.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I refuse to be out of a bathing suit when I want to be in a bathing suit, and then I get fed up and start changing my clothes for the 50th time in a day.  Then I’ll be back in a bathing suit by the end of my little tantrum.  All I know for sure is, I’ve got a pretty one to show you and there are deals afoot!

Oodles of Fun

Caboodle is having a spring cleaning sale and plenty of pretty, holographic (and non-holographic) stuff is up for grabs at dramatically reduced prices.  I picked up this awesome top and bottom (which can be a bathing suit…or something else) for just 25L!  That’s pretty sweet, if you ask me.  There’s lots more on sale, just waiting for you to discover it.  The sale at Caboodle is only running until May 2nd so don’t wait too long!

One Big Runway

KS @ Girls Heaven

Took the little man out for a stroll this morning and came upon a modeling agency!  Saw it was mostly male clients, but little man wanted me to inquire and so I did.  Unfortunately they only take on human male clients and my little man Chi was a no go.  😦  I assured him that doesn’t make him any less appealing as a canine model and that he is very handsome indeed! (You can get your very own handsome little man (or little lady!) at Jian at the Cheeky Chihuahuas Gacha, only 50L).  The key is below:

I, meanwhile, am here to also show you this cute group gift from Lamb (hair).  There are a bunch of group gifts over at Lamb, their group is free to join, so go grab some cute hair whydoncha?!

And so, like I told my little man, as long as you feel good in what you wear (or au naturel like my little man  lol) and you walk through life like it is one big runway, you are a model baby!

Until next time, happy Sunday!

Lucky Me

Lucky Me

I am feeling so lucky today, FabFree.  Lucky because I have been given the awesome gift of this lovely blog to care for.  Yes, it sounds corny and flowery and trite, but I honestly mean it!  When Bunnie poked me with the idea of trying out some hunts, I thought “Hey, why not?”.  I’ve been pretty blown away with all the response we’ve gotten, from kind designers who have thanked us, to hunters who thank us for organizing.  I love it when a plan comes together!

Bunnie

Not only did Bunnie Francis mastermind the whole FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt (invitations! posters! HUD! and a billion more things!), she also put together some pretty lovely prizes for our hunters at her store, Paper.Sparrow.  I picked up the Gnomes sweater and the knickers to go with.  I feel festive and cozy all at once.  This prize costs only 5L.  Don’t you love the little gnomes?  Peek at the key below to get a better look!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Gaze

Another super lovely human that I’ve gotten to know through FabFree is Gaze Satin of Afterparty.  He is SO kind and generous, and we have had some really great conversations while working on our stuff.  On the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt, he’s got these super cute earrings (zomg neon gradient gorgeousness!) for just 5L and loads of really pretty clover-shaped lamps (5L as well) that I’ve strewn all over the place for a shot of pretty, good luck. Excitingly, the green pack (item 3) is entirely free!  Woot!

 

The FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt is here for a good time, not necessarily a long time!  You’ve got til the 20th to grab the goods, and you can see all the hunt keys HERE.  You can also head over to the FabFree Info Hub to get an HUD to help you on  your travels!

Big heart eyes at you all,

It’s All Love

It's All Love
I am entirely aware that Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to toss out everything that has a heart on it.  I’m a proponent of love 24/7, so I’ll be donning the hearts til I’m well and ready to stop.  (I’m sure one of my fits of moody darkness with come upon me at some point!).  Let’s dive in to all the goodies that appeared over V-Day that we haven’t gotten to show you yet!

Soft Wool

There’s a new group gift over at Tetra!  Whenever one appears I get kind of excited since they’re so cute and well made.  To get this pretty sweater (it comes with an HUD to change to 4 other other textures too), join the group for 50L, and click on the vendor.  If you’re feeling a bit lazy (isn’t it weird that we get tired from TPing?  Is that just me? ) you can also join the group from afar and check in group notices to grab it, which is always a nice option.  This gift is out for a limited time, and will be gone on Feb. 28th!

To join the Tetra group, copy and paste this code into your local chat: secondlife:///app/group/68562c63-12e8-ca68-c790-21db8d07fd1c/about

Only Cats!

The little heart keychain I’ve got hooked around my finger made me LOL when I saw it.  It’s a new gift over at Boutique 187 and is completely free.  There are several amusing sayings to choose from on the heart, and I’m sure you’ll find one that tickles your fancy.  There are a few other completely free gifts there in the free gift section, so grab them too!

Lots of Love from me!

In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love

Let me tell you guys a thing about February from a blogging perspective.  December is complete and utter madness in FabFree land.  You’ve got long lists of things you want to show, there are a million places to stop off to pick things up, and you’re usually trying to dig out from the massive pile of boxes landing in your objects folder.  Then comes January.  Land of desolation.  People are all tired and pretty much done with the whole freebie thing…. and then….on the horizon…February!  Ripe with it’s heart-covered goodies, happy events and magical awesomeness.  I love you, Feb!

I Life You

Vinyl has a new group gift!  I love it when that happens!  This cute top is in two parts, so you can wear the top t-shirt on it’s own for a bit of a cheeky lifted shirt look, or add the little cami underneath for more coverage (you can’t really wear the cami on it’s own, fair warning!)  It comes with a really extensive HUD, and there are two different sayings on the shirt to choose from.  It’s Valentines without being too in your face about it!  Join the group for free, and you’ll get this fun top as well as alllllll the other free gifts on the wall too.

Cool Girl Style

Cool Girl Style
There’s nothing quite as cool as a patterned, oversized blazer.  I think you kind of have to be a “patterned oversized blazer” type of person to make it work, and today I have become that person.  I feel powerful, cool, and even like I can take on whatever in this look.  Do you feel like you need an injection of cool-girl style?  I’ve got just the item for you!

Kustom Made

You guys know me and Amitomo.  If they’re making it, then I’m totally into it.  It’s my absolute fave thing to play their gachas, because they are always so pretty and well made, and whenever you play, it’s a given that you’ll end up with a full outfit.  I headed over to Kustom9, and played only once (I do it for FabFree science, I promise) and ended up with this sweet outfit!  At just 69L per pull, you really can’t say no to a full outfit (sized for Maitreya).  It also came with an HUD to change the shorts and top colour, so you’re really ending up with several looks in one.  If you’re feeling particularly lucky, try playing a few more times for the Rare hair.  I didn’t get it, but you just might!

Good luck, cool girls!

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

Cosmo Event Group – secondlife:///app/group/7382cf06-a663-d569-9683-5c3f0edd968f/about

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!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)
