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

Classic Autumn

Classic Autumn

I’m off and hunting again FabFree. I love the plethora of Hunts around this time of year.So I have to give a big “THANK YOU” to all the great designers who participate and make it a fun Fall. One of my fav places is The Sissy Bar and I am never disappointed by the tons of hunt gifts scattered around.

Feast for the Eyes

Maybe I’m just looking forward to next weeks big feast but this particular hunt caught my eye. And out of all the lovely gifts, this perfect little fall outfit was my favorite. This is the ‘Sweet and Saucy’ sweater and skirt from The Sissy Bar. It’s such a simple look but so classy. I’d wear this anywhere! You get both pieces separately so you can mix and match sizes ( or other wardrobe items) Just one linden, a little searching and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Sizes XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP

Silent Lucidity

Silent Lucidity

Hello Fab Free, I hope everyone who participated in the candy gathering part of the Halloween festivities has successfully recovered from their sugar coma and is doing well. It it’s own way, finding great group gifts and freebies around Second Life is a lot like trick or treating minus the sugar rush. For this post I picked up the latest group gift at PumeC, a free pair of earrings at ChicChica, and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Birth. I hope you like them as much as I do!

PumeC

The skin I’m happily wearing is actually just half of the most recent group gift at PumeC. This generous gift includes 2 skins, one for Genus head  wearers (not shown), and one for Catwa head wearers. Both skins come in the “February” tone and have body appliers along with the head applier, cleavage options, brows or no brows, as well as 2 system layer skins. To get your copy of this beautiful skin you’ll need to join the PumeC group. There is a one time join fee of 399 linden.

Body Appliers Included: Legacy, Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, Omega

ChicChica

For what I am sure is a limited time ChicChica has out a free pair of pumpkin earrings. They come with a color change hud that has several metallic options. These pretty free earrings do not require a group at this time either, so do not wait to head over to ChicChica and pick them up.

Birth

These icy blue mesh eyes are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Birth. I love the slightly heart shaped pupils, I think it gives them a unique look. These free eyes can be yours just by wearing your Fab Free group tag and clicking the gift vendor at Birth. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, the group is always free to join.

Here’s What I Have On:

Hair – Wasabi // Ophelia Mesh Hair – Browns
Hair Base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin –  PUMEC – ZARA (Genus) / BIANKA (Catwa) GROUP GIFT – Free Group Gift/Group is 399L to Join

What are you going to BEE for Halloween?

FabFree: What are you going to BEE for Halloween?

Oh my goodness Halloween is sneaking up fast!  Do you have your costume in order?  Maybe you are looking for something a little more on the cute side rather than the gory, creepy or scary style costumes.  I think I have found just the perfect thing for you and it won’t cost you anything if your magic is effective!

Keep calm and “hocus pocus”

Decoy is participating in Hocus Pocus this year with an adorable Bee Costume.  All you need to do is head on over to Decoy, find the Hocus Pocus vendor, and type “hocus pocus” in local.  It might send you the free gift, or it might tell you to come back tomorrow and try again.  If you are magical enough, you’ll be sent the following, and if you know your magic is unworthy / you have no patience…  you can just pay the vendor 50L and have it too ;).

What’s included in the pack:

  • Antenna Black
  • Antenna Yellow
  • Fluttering Wings
  • Janessa Bodycon Dress in Black (Belleza Freya & Maitreya Lara) – FYI, this will be great after Halloween too
  • Janessa Bodycon Dress in Yellow (Belleza Freya & Maitreya Lara)
  • Janessa Bodycon Dress in Stripes (Belleza Freya & Maitreya Lara)

To learn more about Hocus Pocus and see other stores participating, you can visit their official blog [HERE]
