Incense & Peppermints

lilac_010

So, much of my life I’ve been kind of a hippie girl, ok a very hippie girl, I’m always barefoot, don’t wear much makeup, love long skirts and floppy hats and I am even wearing tie dye as I type this!  (in real life!)  So naturally I was excited to discover that there was a 60’s event going on, and had to check it out!

When you arrive there, you will discover a brightly colored fun themed area.  There are booths and shops of goodies and there is a treasure hunt happening.  There is no group needed, you just walk around and grab up all the free gift boxes (some might ask you for 1L but they give it right back).  A couple of them will ask you a 60’s trivia question to get the prize (those seem to be the ones in the bushes) but it is all good fun!

This event runs until August 15, so you have time to browse, treasure hunt and have lots of fun!

One of the goodies I got from the treasure hunt is this cute outfit from The Vale.  It fits only Maitreya, but I absolutely love the detailing on it.

Cre blogged about this event too and you can see what she found here.

Happy weekend!

Always Fabulous and Free

Always Fabulous and Free

Heya Fab Peeps!  A bit of FabFree news today (and of course a freebie!).  We’ve moved the FabFree Info Hub to a new location on mainland, through the generosity of FabFree reader (and longtime friend) Eesoov Elan.  When she had an extra slice of land, she decided that donating it to the Fab Fam was something she wanted to do, and for that we’re all rather grateful.  You’re always welcome to come hang out, get information, and just soak up the general FabFree-ness.  A huge shoutout to the lovely Arielle who went all out with her decorating, creating a lovely cozy space for us all.  Also, a huge shoutout to Bunnie Francis who has hosted the Info Hub for the last year – we love you Buns!  Alright Fab readers, come hang with us!

Now to the Freebies

There’s a new free group gift over at Reed – this pretty, and rather fluttery and summery dress in several different textures that can be changed through the HUD.  Just join the free group, and click on the vendor!  You’ll also find a whole bunch of other free group gifts while you’re at it.

Daydream

Daydream

Hey Fab Crew! Welcome to the start of the weekend at last! Now I know weekends are awesome but you know what makes them even more awesome?  Discovering a New-To-Me designer! I stumbled upon Blackbird Lace today and I couldn’t be happier. Such nice designs and really beautiful builds. What more could you ask for? How about nine lucky boards/chairs AND a wall full of current and past Group Gifts?  I hope you said yes because that’s what we got here!

I picked out this sweet full outfit set, “Adley” from the past group gifts to show you today because it pinged all the Summer feels. I love the bright happy print and blue and yellow are so classic together. Plus you really do get the full set – the mini dress, the heels and the cute bag! Perfect for a Summer stroll.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Dress + Bag + Shoes – Blackbird LaceFREE/0L – Free gift for the Blackbird Lace group – Group is free to join

Pink Drink

Pink Drink
I have this thing that I often order the most ridiculous drink on the menu.  I don’t mean that it’s a complicated drink, I just mean that it’s one of those things that people look at while you drink it and exclaim “what’s that?!”  which eventually is followed by “is it good?”.  And to that, I inevitably say “Venti strawberry açai refresher with light ice… and yes…it is!”

Feeling Sassy

Time for a new group gift from Sass!  This cute perfect for the beach top and bottoms just screams sunny shores to me.  You can wear the top and bottom separately, and I think the top would look super cute with a pair of jeans too.  To get yours, join the Sass group for 10L then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There’s a whole wall of monthly group gifts, so don’t miss out on those either!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Enjoy!

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

It’s a very drab dreary day here in the Real world today. Everything is rainy and drizzly so I need some sun! Even if it’s “just” my newest little summer sundress. 

This is the “Karen Dress” from Dreams and isn’t it a lovely sunshine yellow!? The crocheted look is so delicately done and shows off just enough without reveling too many secrets. But you might want to find some pretty sunny yellow panties to wear with it, if you catch my drift. 😉 Plus, if yellow isn’t your thing, the included HUD will let you pick one of twelve other summery colors.

Karen is the current gift up for the Teleport HUB group over at Dreams. Just wear your tag and slap that board! The Teleport HUB Group is a measly little 10L to join and then you get access to hundreds of great free gifts all over the Grid. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to pick up the FabFree Group gift for free as well!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

Live Your Dream

beige_011

Hey gang!

Back today to show you this gorgeously adorbs dress from Mangula!  You might have seen this on the blog already because it is a new Fab Free Group Gift!  I fell in love with it when I saw it and I just knew I had to blog it.  Just wear your fab free group tag (the group is free to join, of course!) and scoop this baby up!  I am usually a fan of the bright colors or pastels, but this earth tone just had such a softness to it, I fell in love.  Also, it can be worn with or without the sleeves.

This cute dress fits:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky

You can see all of our Fab Free group Gifts on the group gift page.  It’s a great place to find awesome freebies!

In Need of Therapy

In Need of Therapy

Shopping therapy is 100% a thing, right?  Sometimes when a mood of ickiness is upon me (perish the thought), all I need is a bit of aisle perusing.  I don’t really need to buy anything (though I usually do) to make the mood dissipate.  Though, I think I’ll have to start calling what we do here at FabFree a bit of freebie therapy…

Well Suited

This really cool top and pants combo from Tiffany Designs is giving me exactly what I need today to stave off any potential ick.  The top and pants can be worn separately (don’t you love the detailing around the hem at the bottom of the pants?) and they come with 6 different colour options in the HUD.  Best of all, this outfit is entirely and completely free, no group join required.  Yeap, you heard me right!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Fitted
  • Petite
  • Perky

Now do I really need another pair of shoes? Survey says yes!

Sakura Petals

Sakura Petals

Good evenin’ Fab Crew! Have you ever looked at something and thought, “Yeah… that’s okay. Cute enough.”  But then you really look at it and think, “WOW, how did I miss that? This is so so cool!”  Maybe it’s me… Anyway, I have two items for this post, one you’ve already seen but I couldn’t resist showing again and one I almost tossed out because it was ‘just another mini’. Both of these items are from the Dubai Third Anniversary round.

First is my hair. This is No_Reason from No_Match and our adorable Cre showed it off in her post here. I saw it and thought, “Browns… I don’t need brown hair,” But I unpacked it anyway and saw one of the browns was kinda auburn. I popped it on clicked ‘edit’ and then changed the color from basic white to a more orange color. And Bingo! Red hair!  I’m saying all this because with a little easy fiddling this Freebie was just right for me when I had thought it wasn’t at all. It goes to show ya, don’t pass up a free gift until ya mess around with it. You might miss out on something cool. Well, that and trust Cre, she knows what she’s doin’ 😉

Second, is my lovely new mini, the “Medea” dress from Flirt. When I unpacked it I was a little ‘meh’ about it. Then it rezzed fully and I took a closer look. The pink ‘splashes’ are gorgeous branches of cherry blossoms! The pattern reminds me of the old paintings on silk in Japanese art. The vibrant contrast of the delicate pink and white on the ink black background is really stunning. And the workmanship in the dress is simply beautiful. And to think I almost passed it by.

Felt Cute

Felt Cute
Felt cute, most likely won’t delete later.  And by most likely, I mean definitely.  It’s Monday, it’s hot out, and that calls for a bit of self-appreciation.  Even if it wasn’t Monday and it was freezing out, we need a bit more time penciled into our schedules to remind ourselves just how special we really are.

She’s a Star

Mmmkay, so how pretty is this lingerie?  I am fairly obsessed with the flower detailing on this delicate bra and knicker set (sized for Maitreya) from Star Outlet.  I got it by joining their free group, then clicking on the vendor by the main desk.  Really a stunningly beautiful set, don’t you think? There are a few other group gifts out too while you’re at it.

Add it On

I also happened to pick up the latest group gift from Eliavah while I was out and about.  These beautiful stockings and matching gloves give a certain air of mystery and romance to my look (or at least, I perceive them to be that way!).  I am pretty in love with the gloves – I’ll be able to use them with all sorts of outfits to give them a hint of the gothic romance!  Anyway, the Eliavah group is 50L to join, and there are two other quite nice gifts to grab as well.
