Birthday Bash!

Happy Birthday

Yep, I’m jumping on the FabFree wagon of wishing Second Life a happy birthday! Happy Birthday SL! 18 years is a LONG time in virtual years! Whoopiee!! *hangs birthday banners and throws confetti at all of you*🎉 

As Aline and Arielle already showed us here, here, and here, there are lots of free items at SL18B to celebrate SL’s 18th Birthday. I am still getting through the event bit by bit! I will share some of the awesome gifts, deals, and gift cards I found so far!

Goodies at SL18B!

  • Monomania has a 500L gift card out at the event for their group members at their booth on the Jubilant sim. I had to have the Surrender Yourself set, which includes the coat, top, skirt and boots I am wearing. The colours of each piece in the set can be changed to a number of colours. It is the exclusive for the event and it is purchasable with the gift card, and will leave you with 300L left to spend. To get the gift card, you need to join the Monomania group, which costs only 50 Linden. Monomania also has a free outfit at SL18B. Now is a good time to get into their group, because in addition to all these amazing goodies they are offering at Jubilant, they also have many group gifts at their mainstore.
  • The cute little books and plant are a free gift from Korpokkur House at SL18B. This gift is so cute, and it matches my new painting perfectly! There are so many gifts at the event, so I am just showing you a glimpse of the awesomeness that awaits at SL18B!

Streamers!

I needed to pick up some streamers for the birthday festivities and a gacha by Ari-Pari at the Summer Carnival did just the trick! These banners are great for any parties, indoor or outdoor, to celebrate all the awesome events going on this month! They only cost 25L per pull and they include lights too. So cute!

Wear Who You Are

Another must-have gift I wanted to share today is the new Pride Hair Color Universal Hud from EscalateD. It is free for all either at the .EscalateD. mainstore or on the Marketplace. I’ve talked about .EscalateD. hairs before, and the way they work is that the hair colour huds can be used on all EscalateD hairs currently for sale- they are universal. This colour hud is filled with pride flag colour combinations so you can pick which sexual orientation you identify with to match your look. I love it- what a great way to show your pride and personality through your hair. Even if you don’t identify with any of these sexual identities, there are still a lot of pretty and colourful hair combinations you can create with this colour hud so it’s just fabulous all around. 

.EscalateD. PRIDE - free Gift

Enjoy the celebrations, FabFree!

Learning to Sail

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree. Have you ever gone sailing in SL? I can tell you that it’s really fun! I used to go out with my friends on the water all the time. It’s so relaxing going out on the water at Black Sea and just sailing all your troubles away. I recently decided that I’m going to learn to sail myself, so I headed over to Tradewinds Yachtclub to pick up some free boats and resources to start my new learning journey! Before I get to the free boats, though, I have some awesome free makeup and 1L hair lights to share with you that I wore on my visit to the yacht club!

Kawaii Cute

The adorable pink blush I am wearing is a free group gift at Pout!. It’s called the “Cutie patootie Kawaii hearts & blush set” which is a really cute name too! This is a bit of an older gift from earlier this year, but it hasn’t been shown on the blog yet so I’m happy to share it. There are several different patterns of blush, including heart shapes, included in the set of blushes. The Pout! group is free to join and many past gifts are still out. 

The blush comes in the following appliers and fits. 

Appliers Included

    • BOM
    • Catwa
    • Genus
    • Lelutka Origin (this applier will also work on Lelutka Evolution if you wear the Lelutka Evo HUD)

[POUT!] Cutie patootie  - Kawaii hearts & blush

Hair lights!

The second deal I have to share today are the cute bright lights in my hair. These only cost 1 L at Magika! You will need the free Magika group tag to get these hair lights for only 1L. They’re a bit of a hidden gem, and you can find them right next to the Nova hair on sale at the store. These hair lights are meant to be worn with the Nova hair, but I’m sure they could work with other hairs in your inventory too! You can wear the lights as white like I have here or as red and green which would be great for future Christmases!

A whole load of free sail boats

Now back to the topics of my visit to the Yacht cub and sailing, I should also mention that Tradewinds Yachtclub has a whole whack of free sailboats out around the sim! I grabbed them all. As I really want to learn how to sail, this seems like the perfect spot to grab those free boats! I’ve been told the freebie boats on this sim are great to learn from.

Enjoy sailing, FabFree!

A Vintage Goth

Coming Soon

I have a bit of a “vintage goth” look going on today, so I decided to chill and take a picture by this gorgeous stained glass window inside this spooky, dark-lit room. I just love this type of style so I’m excited to share these finds with you today. 

FabFree Gift @ Furtacor

First up is this awesome Jesabel Dress, which is a free fatpack at Furtacor. This one is a FabFree group gift, and it’s simply gorg! Simply join our FabFree group and click the package at Furtacor. If you are having trouble getting to the gift room at Furtacor, take the teleport board to the location that says gifts. There is  LOAD of free gifts from this designer, and a few for just the FabFree group members! Yay! I absolutely fell in love with the emerald and black checkered pattern of this dress, and there is a load of other colours and patterns included with Jesabel that can be changed via a hud. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Legacy Female & Perky
  • Signature Alice
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Altamura
  • Ebody Classic

Dark Vintage

There are a few more freebies added to this look to create that dark, vintage vibe. I will list them to make it easier on the eyes!

  • The gorgeous pearls around my neck are a dollarbie at Lorien. They’re beautes. 
  • The pearl headband is yet another free group gift at Cae. Remember that Cae is closing at the end of the month, so make sure you go over there and get all the gifties before they disappear! The headband can be resized. 
  • The spiky hoop earrings are a free lucky board gift at Sn@tch, no group required. 
  • The adorable rainbow eyes are a free gift on the Marketplace by Nimu. I am wearing the BOM version of the eyes, but these also include appliers for Genus, Lelutka, and Omega. 
  • The gorgeous black lipstick comes from an amazing 1L deal on the marketplace. This is a lipstick applier made specifically for Lelutka Evolution heads made by Bellucci. The “Her Glossiness” pack comes in several other natural lip gloss tones tones!

Enjoy, FabFree!

I’ve been on a real fantasy kick lately, and I have even more fantastical finds and events to share with you today! First, I will mention the Kings & Queens hunt which is on until May 31st. I am showing off the beautiful hunt prize by Ari-Pari. This is the Elegance dress, and it comes in red, blue, green, purple and black which you can change via a hud. It’s so pretty, and it costs only 1 linden. Just click the hunt object on the sign at Ari-Pari to get the hint and start hunting ;).

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus

All things Enchanted

Right now, the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt is going on, which means yet another free hunt by Enchantment. This hunt is on until May 31st, so get hunting my friends! The adorable little bird bath by MOoH! is one of the fabulous free gifts on the hunt. The bird is animated and moves around the bath! For a list of all the locations and hints on the hunt, go to this link.

Enchantment also has a shopping event on their sim to celebrate the Midsummer Night’s Dream event. Most of the decor in my scene is from the Enchanted forest gacha by MOoH! which you can play at the Midsummer Night’s Dream event until May 31st. I love the swans, the lamps and the adorable bed which is the rare pull. This gacha costs 50L per pull to play.  I also decorated the scene with some free grasses, a mushroom stump ad dried leaves, which are all free landscaping items as group gifts and Midnight Madness board prizes at Lunaria. Please check the credits below for all the details.

Wandering Woman

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! How’s it going? I’m pulling off a wandering woman in the forest look today and I am enjoying it. Look at this shiny golden leaves! They match my gold leaves, hair and accessories. 

More Free Hair @ FaMESHed

It’s become a little personal mission of mine to begin showing the free hair you can get at the current anniversary round of FaMESHed.

The style I have on today is Dana by Sintiklia and yes, it is completely free at FaMESHed. The hair comes in a number of beautiful tones and shades you can change via a hud, and it even includes a style hud which allows you to move your hair back, over to one side, etc. 

I was really surprised by how many awesome hair gifts there were at FaMESHed! As I’m sure you all know, hair is hard to come by so if you are a hair lover, this is definitely the event of the month to stop by, although several of the other events going on this month also have some great hair stylin’! Hair lovers of the world, unite!

Matching Jewels

My little heart necklace is also a free gift by Sintiklia at their main store. They have a TONNE of group gifts with the free group (a whole wall), so make sure you check these out! What I really appreciate about Sintiklia is that not only do they have a FREE VIP group, but they also, from what I have seen in my time in SL, always put up their gifts from events up as free group gifts at their store. They are oh so generous and their products are simply gorgeous. You will find a range of hairs, accessories, jewelry, packs of bangs and makeup for a variety of heads! Enjoy the gifts my friends. ❤  

See you soon, FabFree!

The Owlery

bird pic_0043489u

This post is filled with great deals that will help you achieve this fantastical owl look, so read further for the details! This post is chock full of freebies, so dig in for the free and magical fun my friends! 🦉

Free Gifts @ Fantasy Faire

In this post, I am focusing on freebies you can find at Fantasy Faire 2021. I had to hunt hard to find these, as the event is massive- 22 sims in total! I will break down down some of free gifts I found at the Faire below.

  • The gorgeous owl mask is a free gift at Spyralle’s booth. Grab this little guy for 0L on the wall. This was a hard one to find, but it is so beautiful and intricate. What an amazing gift!
  • This beautiful hairstyle is a free gift at Firelight’s shop at the Faire. This hair is so cool, because it changes colour every minute to a different natural tone! There is also a free men’s hair gift in their booth!
  • The amazing shimmer on my body is a generous free gift from Ghoul. Just enter into their store at Valhalla and grab this gift in the middle of their display. This crystal shimmer is a materials applier that works on Legacy and Maitreya bodies only, as well as Lelutka Evolution heads. This applier can be used on Male and Female avatars.

  •  Belle Epoque has a set of nails hidden in an object in their store at the Faire for free. Click the statue for the hint, and go hunt for it! The prize is a beautiful set of purple nails that work on Legacy and Maitreya bodies.

The Language of the Birds

Another way to hunt down some great deals at Fantasy Faire is to participate in their “Language of the Birds” hunt quest. Please read Juli’s post here to find out more details about how to play the Fantasy Faire Quest Hunt. By purchasing the quest HUD (it costs 250 L for the basic or 350L for the deluxe*), you are able to participate in the quest. The HUD can be purchased at Fantasy Faire Junction. If you solve the quest, you will receive a reward in the form of a bunch of gifts from various Fantasy Faire designers. The quest gift I am showing today is a set of beautiful floral horns made by EscalateD. These look like little floral branches that a little bird would stop to rest on!

The Quest hunt and the free gifts will be available until May 9th, the closing day of Fantasy Faire.

The Fairlands Quest is live!

Other Freebies and Offers

My look today is packed with additional freebies and offers from various places around the grid, so here are some more offers I am showing off today:

The dress fits Legacy, Maitreya, Isis, Freya, and Hourglass. The 300L credit is only available until May 7th, so go get it quickly!

Daisy Fields

Daisy Fields

Hey FabFree! I hope you’re having a wonderful start of the week. I am enjoying the blossoming spring (almost summer) weather in the daisy fields and just chilling. It’s a good day! Today I have a gorgeous free skin to show you and another group gift at Scandalize.

Holly

This skin is absolutely beautiful, and it’s completely free. This gift is compliments to amara beauty. This designer makes gorgeous skins! This is the Holly skin, and it’s designed for Lelutka Evo heads using BOM. I am wearing the skin on the Lilly Lelutka Evo head that was gifted to us last Christmas, so if you have this head this might be the perfect skin for you! This skin will also look lovely on any other Lelutka Evo head.

Sizes Included

  • BOM, designed for Lelutka Evolution Heads only

amara beauty also has other body skins- body appliers and BOM layers for Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies- out for free in the upper level of the store, so check those out while you stop by too.

Flarya

The beautiful top and shorts set I have on is yet another group gift at Scandalize. You can find this gift at the same location as the new Scandalize outlet that Aline blogged about the other day. For this gift, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group. In addition to that huge room of free gifts Aline shared with us last week, Scandalize has set out some extra gifts at this sim which you can only get at this location. Just go into the “group gifts” room on the outlet sim. The Scandalize group costs 20 Linden to join, and it is well worth the fee because you get access to lots of fatpacks, gifts and lucky letters! The Flarya set is a full fatpack and comes with options to change the colour of the top, shorts, the frills, strings and metals of each piece. There are also a number of stripes patterns that come with the set. It’s a keeper!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
