Purely Romantic

Purely Romantic

Everyone needs a little romance once in a while, even in their wardrobe. Hi Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to share with you this sweetly romantic gift top from Mangula, and a pretty floral manicure set from Beautiful Hustler. Keep reading for the details, credits are listed at the bottom as always.

Mangula

Mangula has several free gifts, the only catch? You need to be a member of their subscriber group. I picked up a fat pack of the Nina Blouse for free. It comes in quite a few colors, and each color pack has multiple sizes. I love the undeniably romantic look to this bare shoulder copped top.  Once you’re at Mangula, be sure to click their subscriber to join (it is free and does not use a group slot) then click the gift vendor and once your subscriber status is verified, your free gift will be delivered.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Tonic Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Beautiful Hustler

A romantic look just wouldn’t be complete without a pretty manicure. I picked up this bento floral manicure set by Beautiful Hustler on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. I really should have snapped a closer photo so you can see the nice detail on these stiletto nails. It comes in 3 pretty floral patterns with nails to fit Maitreya or Slink bento hands.

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

Bubble-Goth Baby


Bubblegoth Baby

Felt cute, not gonna delete later. There are times when I have to admit that the whole bubble goth trend is my jam. It’s cute, it’s spooky, and fun all at once. So is this bubble goth themed backpack by Sweet Evil. I paired it with the Fabulously Free in SL group gift jean skirt by Mangula for some extra cuteness. From here you know the routine, keep reading for more information on each of these fabulous gifts, or scroll on down for full credits.

Sweet Evil 

Time for a little school-day nostalgia with this cute little backpack by Sweet Evil. It’s one of their recent free group gifts. The backpack comes with a texture change hud that has several “bubble goth” themed prints in pretty pastel colors. To get yours you’ll need to join the Sweet Evil group. Thankfully the Sweet Evil group is free to join at this time.

Mangula 

I really like the jagged edge to this otherwise classic jean skirt by Mangula. It comes in the grey color shown, complete with cute butterfly appliques on the back pockets. Not in to butterflies? No problem. There is a hud with the skirt that will allow you to hide the butterflies if you want to. The skirt also happens to be Mangula’s free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is of course free to join also.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Tonic Curvy

Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

By the Beautiful Sea

By the Beautiful Sea

We’re back at the beach!  The best thing about SL beaches is the lack of wasps.  Well, I mean, there are other good things too, but right now I’m going to rail against the wasps.  Can’t go anywhere right now without being surrounded by little terrifying buzzy things that want to investigate your ham sandwich with a vengeance.  But anyway, I digress.  Just get to the freebies, Aline!

Uber it Up!

I told you the other day about all the awesomeness you can grab over at Uber, and there’s so much more to check out.  I won’t blather too much about it all, but remember you don’t need to join a group, just click on all the gifts to grab em!  Here’s what I’m showing ya!

  • FREE bathing suit by Breezy sized for Freya, Isis and Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Mangula sized for Ebody Curvy, Maitreya and Hourglass
  • FREE earrings by Enchante’

Love it.  And not a wasp in sight.

Toes in the Sand

Toes in the Sand

My RL vacation is looming, but somewhat oddly I’m not going anywhere hot.  I’m sure it will rain most of the time, but that’s ok, I’ll still have a good time peeking at all the green fields.  So really, I’m getting my sand and surf and all the tropical plants I can stomach inworld.  Virtual toes in virtual sand is kinda the same thing as the real thing, right?  RIGHT?

Tell Me the Truth

I’m sending you to three different locations today, but I think you may forgive me when you see all my pretty finds!  Truth has a new group gift out!  If you’re not part of the group yet, whatcha waiting for?  Join for 350L and you get regular awesomeness delivered straight to you in group notices.  This gift is called Alias, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours as well as different style options.  I love how it’s all undone and messy…perfect for summer!

I’m All Ears

I also picked up a bunch of jewelry as group gifts over at LaGyo!  I joined their group for 150L, and this cute cat ear headband encrusted with HUD-changeable gems was mine for the taking!  There are a bunch of other fun jewelry and accessory gifts there too.  Woot!

Dressing Up

Finally, my dress is the latest Midnight Mania board over at Punk JUSTUS.  No group join required, just come slap the board and call your friends over to grab this great summery wrap dress for FREE!  I love the swirling blue designs, and the little hip tie is a great little detail.  What more can I say than SWEET!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

I’ll just watch the waves roll in now…

I’m bad for you love, but I’m your cigarette

Hey there Fabulouses! Pru and I are working together again today to show off a couple of really awesome free gifts that you can pick up.  This blog post is in video format rather than photo, because one of the gifts is a bento dance animation.  It’s just over a minute and a half so it won’t take too long – sit back and enjoy!

Matchy Matchy

Our Bootylicious bodysuits with a Janet Jackson style wardrobe malfunction are a free lucky board prize at Mangula. Nina includes the bralette top as well, but you can wear it without if you are brave enough.  It also includes a thick black belt, but it’s an add-on so you can choose to wear it with or without as Pru and I have done. FYI – these boards are open to all, not set to group 🙂

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Freya Isis & Freya
  • Ebody Curvy

Shake your booty for free

The Sophie 58 Bento Dance Animation is available at the Move! Animations display at The Pose Fair as a free group gift when you are a member of the Pose Fair inworld group.  This group is free to join, and this dance animation is highly entertaining!  It’s a half minute dance animation that will be a great addition to your dance HUD system.
