Day Off

Fabfree Post: Day off

Day off for Alice

That sneaky little girl Alice conned me into painting some roses, once I agreed to take her paintbrush, a rabbit appeared quickly rushing her to do something by whispering in her ear.  I watched her pop something into her mouth and she quickly shrank to the tiniest little girl I’ve ever seen! I realized I may have picked the short stick on this one…

INKer  Esareme Girl Tattoo has a few tattoos up for L$10 and the one I’m wearing has a vintage pinup girl vibe going on. The date the promotional price is unclear so I would go take a look at them as soon as possible to snag them all! The item comes with Dark, Medium, and Light options so you can get a great mix of how new or old you want the tattoo to look!

Options for Esareme Girl Tattoo

  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • BOM

Popcorn has a free gift out at Down the Rabit Hole which happens to be this cute shirt I’m wearing! Featuring the event name on it along with some iconic silhouettes that give you no other option but to think of Alice and her Wonderland Adventures! You will have a hard time not being late after you visit the event! This is my favorite gift from the entire event so far, comment below what yours is!!

Popcorn’s Mel Top Fits:

  • Alice
  • Freya

Outside of the little shop area at Analog Dog on the beach, there is a bubble, there you will find you can purchase the bubble for L$0 and get the inclosed free hair with no group needed! This is a fantastic find for your wigging out needs! I opted for the Leela Dark Red hair to showcase a deeper color palette for this picture. There are however other colors you for you chose from with their free gifts!

Another day at the beach

Another day at the beach

I’ve had some people ask me, “Why should I join FabFree? It takes up a group slot and everything. Aren’t you just a blog?”  OOOH no. You see when you join FabFree for free, you can go pick up tons of free gifts! For FREE. And seriously, who doesn’t love free?

Off to the beach

On my quest to show off our fabulous FabFree designers, I saw Alias has this super cute top and shorts combo as their FabFree Group gift! I thought it looked perfect for some casual down-time with the pupper playing on the beach. If pink isn’t your thing, the top has a HUD for ten color/patterns! So put on your Group tag and slap that board. Then you can do some casual beach time too!

Sizes Included

Blueberries and Cactus

Garden Projects

Hello hello Fab Free! I’ve got some goodies from Blueberry (including store credit!), some cute denim applier shorts by Nerdosaurus, and a Le Poppycock freebie by way of the Pose Fair to share with you today. As always, but especially now, I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and doing well despite all the unpleasantness out in the world. That said, hopefully these free and inexpensive finds make you smile. You know how this works from here, keep reading for details, and peep full credits at the end.

P.S. I even put a few extras in the credits! Have fun Fab Free! 

Blueberry

It’s a good time to be part of the Blueberry in-world group if you’re not already. Caroline gave me the heads up that just a day or two ago they sent out a group gift via notices that is a complete Mega Pack. There’s also a 350 linden store credit available to group members also in a notice sent out today! You guys, that makes the 20 linden join fee worth it worth it worth it!!

The generous Mega Pack gift from Blueberry includes the puffer jacket, and dress with lots of options. Along with several sizes, the jacket and dress can be worn together or separately. If you want to wear both together, wear the jacket in your size and use the detailed customization hud to show the dress. From there you can pick from tons of color options for the dress, jacket, and metal parts. Additionally, there is an option to hide or show panties with a lace option for those as well as the color choices. Reminder, the Blueberry group has a one time join fee of 20 linden. Don’t forget to check the notices!

Sizes Included: Legacy, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Nerdosaurus 

I personally chose to wear the group gift dress from Blueberry as a shirt and put on a cute pair of denim shorts by Nerdosarus.  I found them for just 10 linden on the Marketplace. For that price especially, these shorts are a steal! The shorts come in 5 denim shades, each in an Omega applier as well as classic system layers.

Le Poppycock

The Pose Fair is a must-go-to shopping stop. There are so many free gifts I can’t even tell you how many, and there are poses for everyone. The Pose Fair group is also free to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift boxes to get your free gift. These cute little cacti are part of the Pose Fair gift by Le Poppycock. This gift includes the cacti and a single bento hold pose.

Dragon or Angel?

Dragon or Angel

Hello FabFree, happy Tuesday to you! Of course my Tuesday is happy ’cause it’s 25L Tuesday! Twenty five venders with great items priced at only 25L should make anyone happy.  Now this little sale used to be geared totally towards role play and fantasy type clothes and items. But lately more and more ‘mundane’ things are up for grabs. So you don’t need to be into RP to love this sale.

RP is calling

I decided to indulge my fantasy RP leanings today with On a Lark’s gorgeous “Angelica Dress”. There are sixteen color available and each one has a HUD to change the color of the belt to one of those sixteen colors. Now some venders leave their 25L Tuesday up for several days but some take them down at the stroke of midnight. So if this sweet dress needs to be in your wardrobe don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Dragon Queen

While I was at On a Lark… I saw they have a bunch of nifty Gacha machines. Y’all know I’m a sucker for a good gacha. As I perused I saw these cute medieval looking  “Bliss” sandals and the awesome “Dragon” arm bracers and pauldrons. And each of the Gachas are only 50L per play! I just couldn’t resist being a dragon queen. Rawr!

Sandal Sizes

  • Classic (Unrigged)
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Writers Block

FabFree: Writers Block

Hey there Fabulouses!  Today I bring you a little bit of personal news regarding my plans for the new year, the future of Fabulously Free in SL… and of course information on how to pick up this two piece outfit for FREE, because I couldn’t come empty handed!

Let’s start with the outfit (mostly because I am procrastinating sharing my news!)

At Mangula, there is a whole wall full of FREE lucky board prizes, and may of them have been shown here on FabFree before, but you have to keep going back to see the new additions!  I popped in last night and found the Keyla Set that includes the ripped jeans and sweater and voila, my “L” came up!  You are not required to join the group to participate in the lucky boards but there are some nice group gifts with a free group join just beside the luckies too if you are interested in grabbing those.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Get on with it, Love

Ok! Here’s my news…

After much thought and almost 9 years with Fabulously Free in SL, I am announcing that I am retiring from running, and blogging for the organization.  I am stepping down as leader, still with much love for FabFree, for no other reason than after nearly a decade… I’m tired.  For the benefit of FabFree and my sanity (lol), the time has come to pass the torch to a new leader who is fresh, and inspired and eager!

Aline Passiflora has been a dedicated and enthusiastic team member for over two years now, entertaining you with her quick witted writing skills and keen eye for fashionable freebies!  She will be taking on the lead role here at FabFree, and I am very confident that she will do amazing things with it!

What’s next for Love?  I am not entirely sure, but I do know that I will continue posting the photos I so love to make on my flickr feed and will post credits to my personal SLovesadventures Blog.  I might clean my overflowing inventory or explore different areas of interest in Second Life.  Who knows what kind of trouble I might get into with all of this free time.  I can’t wait to find out!

In closing, I just want to thank you all for your readership and support over the years that I have been with this wonderful organization and community.  I am also very thankful for the friendships I have made over the years here with our very hard working writers (past and present), and readers and designers.

Now I’m just getting babbley…  I’m so excited to see what is in store for Fabulously Free in SL, and for myself with these changes.

ps.  Be patient with Aline while she gets things organized in a way that works for her!

*squishy hugs, best wishes, huge thanks and love for all*

Love Trill

It’s ok to be a little goofy this holiday season

FabFree: It's ok to be a little goofy this holiday season

Hey there Fabulouses!  In this blog post I am going to be telling you about a fatpack of free hair by Elikatira and a cute free sweater by Pink Rayne.  To sweeten the pot, my pose with the Christmas Ribbons is free too and I’ll tell you where to find that!

A whole fatpack of free hair by Elikatira!

Elikatira has a free gift at Shop & Hop and it comes in a whole fatpack of colours!  Foster is a long casual style with cute little pin barettes (that the ribbons are sadly covering, but they are there!).

Jumpers for everyone

When you stop at the Pink Rayne Display at Shop & Hop, you can pick up the Hanne Jumper in green  as a free gift.  This sweater comes in several mesh body sizes as listed below.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

The Finishing Touch…  Put a ribbon on it!

You’ll have to head to a different place altogether to find this adorable pose by Le Poppycock called All Is Bright.  It includes the Christmas Ribbons and is a free group gift at The Pose Fair with a free group join.

You Know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

You Know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

Here we go, FabFree. More great Christmas time free gifts. Our Second Life Designers are always generous through out the year but there’s something about Christmas, isn’t there?

On Dasher and Dancer

I’m seeing reindeer… gold ones if not eight tiny ones. This is the “Venus” sweater from Blonde Queen and it’s the  free Group Gift for December. I love that it’s not so short that it’s indecent and not so long that it can only be a dress. I think this will look awesome with a pair of jeans or equally great with tights and heels.  The Blonde Queen group is currently free to join and there are several past gifts available.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
