A Chill Wind Blows

A Chill Wind Blows

Ooh, the chill wind doth blow today, my friends!  It is the first official day of Fall here in my part of the world, and boy is Mother Nature intent on letting us know.  We went from sweltering to chilly in under 24 hours!  Time to bundle up!

Corvus (purveyors of all things dark and moody) have lowered their group price to just 10L!  There are a whole host of really great group gifts there too, including this cozy turtleneck dress.  It comes in this spooky-type style as well as plain black.  PLUS there’s a gift for the guys.  Actually, there are a whole bunch of gifts for gentlemen there too, so tell your dude friends!  I’m not sure how long the group will be 10L to join (it used to be 99L), so get in and spread the word before it changes.

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Coquette

Coquette

Well, yes… Valentine’s Day is behind us, but I love a good red and pink look.  If it makes me think of piles of discounted red candy, and the sweet remnants of love notes that are indelible upon my soul.  Oh…how very romantic, right?  Fine fine, I’ll stop waxing poetic and get to the gifts!

Long Tresses

Are you in the mood for some free hair?  I bet I know the answer to that.  It’s time to nip on over to Limerence, where you’ll find this long pigtail look.  It’s just adorable, isn’t it?  It comes in this pinkish hue, and includes several different sizes.   You can also add little wispy bangs to the front.  I had to add some extra bangs to the look in order to get the right fit look, so that’s always an option if you’re finding that hair doesn’t fit quite the way you want (I got these at TRUTH).  Anywhos, the Limerence group is free to join, making this cute look completely free.

I Heart It

As I’ve mentioned, I’m good with wearing pink and red pretty much all the time, even outside of Valentine’s Day.  I headed on over to Safira where I picked up this cute dress and matching boots (sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy & Maitreya) when I joined the group for just 50L.  There is a MASSIVE wall of gifts there, making the join fee more than worth it.  You can play around with the HUD to make your boots or the dress red with pink hearts, or vice versa.  What a fun look!

Dress Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky

Happy post-Valentine’s Haze!

Love Day Beauty

Cuteness
It’s finally here!  Valentine’s Day!  What, you ask, does Desi wear on this festive day of love and sexiness?  Well, she wears what she always wears…cute stuff that she finds for FREE!!!

The Group Gifts at Brillancia are absolutely terrific and, ladies, you may not have gotten roses today, but you can join this group for FREE!!! The newest gift, the Anna dress, comes in all kinds of color HUD options.  You can switch up the skirt and top and the top and lower bands to find a style you like.  I paired the dress with the Group Gift heels named Arya (also free!).  These, too, are customizable…the leather, the laces, and the heel. I looked around the store, and I really like Brillancia‘s style.  Everything sort of looks the same around the grid as fashion trends hit all the stores at once, and Brillancia has some really sweet and unique outfits that are so pretty.  The designer, Eva Chekov, is also really nice.  I had a question, and she was super helpful.  I definitely shop at stores where the designers are nice!

The Boots!

So….whether you have a date or not for the big V-Day celebrations, you can still wander around the grid looking sensational.  There are a heap of free group gifts, and you will have so much fun trying everything on and working with the HUDS to create your custom happy look!

Grab your Coat

Hey there, Fab Fam! It’s Christmas Eve Eve and I’m so wrapped up in the Christmas spirit! All my gifts are wrapped up under our little tree, there’s hot chocolate on the stove, and Christmas music on the radio. One of my favorite things about this season is going to see friends and family and bringing gifts and snacks and indulging in the best gift of all – People I dearly love.

One thing you need for all the visits is something cute and cozy and full of the holiday spirit. S@bbia has me covered this year with the “Chester Coat and Skirt Set”. You get the whole outfit for free when you were the S@bbia group tag. Yep, even the snazzy red boots! Plus, the group is free to join. The outfit is truly a ‘one and done’ as the coat, sweater and cutie skirt are one piece. The knit textured boots are separate.

Autumn’s Queen

Autumn Queen

Hello FabFree and happy Wednesday! Fall isn’t done yet and I’m hanging onto it as long as I can. And if I’m a Queen of Autumn how can it deny me? 

If you are a long time reader of the Blog here, you may recognize this lovely gown and cloak. It first appeared at BlueMoon Enterprise back in 2017 and was featured by our own Astrid. But it’s such an enchanting item I thought ‘what the heck’! Maybe it will catch the eye of some of our new folks.

The “Queen of Autumn” gown is the current Group Gift over at BMe so you can pick it up for free with your free Group tag.  You get the complete look here – the cloak, the shoulder pieces, the collar and necklace and the sleeves. All together it’s a show stopping look! Of course… just the dramatic red gown would be great for any of those upcoming Christmas formals too.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh Sizes – XXS – M
  • FitMesh SLink

How is this post about zombies?

How is this post about Zombies?

Hey there, FabFree!  Monday got ya down? It could be worse… you could be a zombi instead of just feeling like one! But Grumble is telling me that everything is Better with Zombies.  Confused yet?  I can explain. See, Grumble is hosting a sweet mini hunt in the stores of their mall running along the Twisted Hunt. And they’re calling it the “Everything is better with Zombies” Hunt. I assure you that this mini hunt is not at all like the Twisted Hunt which is as hard as it’s rumored to be. The Zombie hunt is just for fun and for great free prizes, of course!

Speaking of great prizes, I am in love with these super cute pajamas from Ari-Pari, “Creepy Monsters.” The roving eyeballs are creepily adorable! You get the top and shorts as two separate pieces and a HUD for five color choices. The top and shorts can be colored separately as well for fun mix and match.

Sizes Included

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

If you look close you’ll see my second gift from the Hunt, the Barrow’s Landing Bracelet from Loordes of London. I don’t usually show too much jewelry but this bracelet is so nice. The stones are like sea glass or polished pebbles. I just love it.

The “Everything is Better With Zombies” Hunt (( <- This LM will take you to Grumble’s main store and a kiosk of photos of the Hunt Prizes)) will run until Sept 30th so shuffle over to the Grumble mall and get to hunting!

Top + Shorts – Ari-Pari @ Grumble Mall – Creepy Monster Set – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Jewelry – Loordes of London @ Grumble Mall – Barrow’s Landing Bracelet – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Bedroom Look

Coming Soon

I’m not usually one to walk around in lingerie, but there’s a time and a place for sexy, revealing and cute bedroom looks. I have just a couple free gifts for today including  dumplings, and a great hairstyle shared in my “bedroom look” today. 

The Features!

The adorable and yummy dumplings I am showing today are the latest free group gift at Birth. These dumplings are available to wear by holding them in your hands or in your mouth. I’ve been wearing these in my mouth around the grid because they are sooo cute and look like little kitty cats. 

The other gift I am showing today is the beautiful hairstyle, which is another free gift on the Men Only hunt. You can find this lovely prize at Limerence. The hair comes in a pack of pastel colours, and it is a unisex style that can be worn by all genders. See my post here and Gabe’s post here to read more about the Men Only hunt. The hunt ends on August 30th, so you only have a couple of days left to hunt and gather!

Roadblock

Roadblock

I’m suddenly feeling like I’m in some music video that involves very impractical outfits and motorcycles.  At least in SL I don’t have to worry about such mundane things as helmet hair, right?  (Stay safe on the roads, y’all!) Anyway, I’m feeling a bit crazy and a lot cool in my new finds!

Roadside Assistance

I found my awesome jumpsuit over at Paré (in 15 different shades) on the lucky boards.  I didn’t even know there were lucky boards tucked away in the shop, but there are some really great free ones for both male and female avatars.  You can get all sorts of fun stuff without even joining a group, just wait til your letter comes up!

Sizes

  • BBL
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Top it Off

And it’s time for some cool new free hair over at Limerence!  This fun top knot comes in a full fatpack of colours so you can go as crazy or staid as your heart desires.  The Limerence group is free to join (there are two groups, this one is from the free to join group – be aware!).  How fun is that?

See you guys on the road!
