Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way

Ramblin’ On

I couldn’t help but quote a bit of Led Zeppelin at you.  When Autumn comes around, that song always has me feeling all the feels!  Anyway, there’s maaaaassive news from Mangula today, and that is that they’ve got 20 free gift boxes lying around the store for everyone to pick up!  No group join required, just click on the boxes scattered around the shop.  You’ll also find that each box doesn’t just contain one gift, they each contain multiple, and that’s hella generous!  I fell in love with the contents of box #6, which is this awesome corseted dress.  I don’t know how long this will be going on for, as it is listed as “limited time only” so get your patoot over there!

Update:  Looks like you have to hit the subscrib-o-matic in order to pick up the gifts!  It’s located over the front desk and is free to join!

Stay Wild, Child

Stay Wild, Child

A little madness now and then is cherished by the wisest men.  And women too, obviously.  On days when I feel bored and uninspired, the best way to kick start my motivation is to throw some crazy clothes on.  Does that work for you?

Queenz Everywhere

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  I love their urban and curve-hugging styles that always make me feel excited to get moving.  Their latest is this super cool top, shorts and panties set that come in a bunch of exciting hues.  I love the fact that the shorts are see-through, because it just adds a hint of sexiness to what would have traditionally been a utilitarian outfit.  You can get this outfit (and a pile of other group gifts) by joining the Queenz group for FREE!  You heard me boo!

Create Beauty Around You

Create Beauty Around You

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  With the new week comes new opportunities for dreaming, hoping and imagining!  I’m enjoying a warm breeze and thinking about all the ways I can make the world a beautiful place.  Seems like a tall order sometimes, but we can all contribute to the magic of life through the things that we create.

Starry Eyed

Mangula are usually very generous with their gifts, and today I got all excited about the latest subscriber gift.  The Summer Party set is a riotous collection of awesome items that can be worn in so many ways.  This gift comes with a bodysuit, lingerie, the star-dappled dress, the socks in three lengths and the booties!  Oof!  You can have so much fun with this one!  To get it, just make sure you click the subscriber unit at Mangula, which costs 100L to join, then you’ll gain access to a ridiculous amount of gifts, including this newest set!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Maitreya

Trompe L’Oeil Does it Again!

Over at Trompe L’Oeil there’s a new Stay at Home gift, which is insanely generous.  This full cabin, as well as the chair and ottoman you can see behind me are all free for everyone – no group join required!  I think it’s time to change up my living quarters in SL again, just for the fun of it!  The gifts over at Trompe L’Oeil for the Stay at Home Club change up often, so you’d better go grab it!

Keep on making things beautiful, Fab Free!

Easy Peasy

Easy Peasy

I am getting pretty good at this staying at home thing, guys.  I even get dressed up now and then and lounge on stools in a very nonchalant way.  Really, I just wanted to show you how cute the back of this dress is!

Oh Mangula!

If you haven’t joined the subscriber list at Mangula for free quite yet, then I must urge you to do so right away!  There are so many great free finds there that joining should be a top priority.  Very recently, they put out this dress and shoes combo which is so versatile you may just faint.  Or you know, something like that.  The dress comes in three different versions, short, long, and as a top in a 20 different colours.  The heels are in the box too and they’re in 20 different colours as well.  Wow!  Hop on over to Mangula and find this amazing fatpack on the gift wall by all the lucky letters!

Violet Set Free Gift @Mainstore ♥

Make it Your Own

There’s a new group gift at Sintiklia too, and it’s kind of awesome!  You can get creative as these little buns, hairbase, and bangs all come separately so you can put it together in any way you can think of.  You could even colour each part separately if you feel particularly adventurous!  To get it, all you have to do is join the Sintiklia group for 250L and click on the vendor.  There are loads of group gifts, free gifts and lucky boards there to keep you looking chic.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Wanna Go For a Ride?

Wanna Go for a Ride?

Right Fab Free, I’ve grabbed the keys, I got some cute clothes, the sun is shining, so we’re going for a drive.  What else does one do on an extra day of the  year?  I mean, you could probably clean your kitchen, or scrub the bath tub, or something equally boring and useful, but I’m hopping in the car and getting the heck outta Dodge!

Come With Me

It’s not always the destination that’s important, as the journey is key, but today’s destination is Ajuda SL Brasil!  This little treasure trove of freebies is fairly well known, but I found some really cute things from Mangula while I was there.  I mixed two of the gifts together to make a fun, sexy and casual outfit.  I grabbed the Ines Set for the top and jacket, and the Keyla set which contains these cute ripped jeans.  When you stick it all together, it just looks adorable, don’t you think? Of course, everything at Ajuda SL Brasil is completely free, so take a wander around and see what you’ll find!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

See you soon, Fab Free!

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.

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
