Well Hello, Dave…

My nails are free on the Marketplace. They include Omega Appliers. Every item on Hello Dave’s Marketplace Store is currently free, so pick them up while you still can! You will have an awesome manicure for any occasion. There are over 800 free sets of nails so it does take a while to grab them all for free. Most of their nails work if you have Omega installed into your body, so they may not work with some of the newer bodies that are BOM only.

Sizes Included

  • Omega

That’s all for now, FabFree!

Living in a Pastel World

123022 - Living in a Pastel World - 01

Helloooo Fabbies. I hope you are having wonderful, happy, safe holidays and looking forward to the new year. Today I am celebrating in style in this “lots of pink” look at one of my favorite locations for taking photos:  Luane’s Magical World. I thought it would be the perfect place for taking unique photos on this lovely sofa with poses from Gᴏi (goizane) of Fashiowl. You can see more poses using this set below, which also includes the champagne flute prop and a cell phone as well…on sale for only L$60 this weekend! There are 12 bento poses total in the sofa with an adjustable option for each. The individual poses are also included separately and a pose stand! Did I mention all this for only L$60? Hurry before it’s over on Sunday night!

123022 - Living in a Pastel World - 02

Let’s chat about this cute outfit.

  • This comfy cropped pink sweater is a group gift at MOW.  It is FREE and the group is FREE to join. The sweater fits Freya, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, and Maitreya Petite bodies.
  • You don’t even have to leave the sim for the next gift. The jeans I am wearing are the FREE group gift from 2Love. The group is also FREE to join for these. And the jeans are fit for Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Lara and Hourglass.
  • I found the perfect sneakers to go with my outfit from Baby Monkey. They are a past group gift and are now available for only L$10 on the second floor in a multi-vendor. They are for Maitreya and Slink feet.

Finally I wanted some cute earrings to wear with this outfit, and I found these adorable rabbit earrings on Marketplace as a dollarbie from Cubic Cherry’s shop. They are of course unrigged. Be sure to check out all the credits below for a few other great dollarbies.

Until next time!

Hit The Dab

Hit The DabHello out there. Hopefully you, like me, are lazing your way through the week between Christmas and New Years’. Time spent however you want it to be, sometimes industrious and other times downright wasteful. And of course spent on favorite hobbies too, like sniffing out freebies and deals!

Dollar Pie

Pink Cream Pie is mentioned time and time again here on FabFree, because the group is awesome and loaded with perks. But what if you’re not in the group? Well, then this is the post for you, my friend. Pink Cream Pie has a dozen or so really nice items out there on SL Marketplace for only 1L each! I was a little bit conflicted about which one to actually show you but I mean come on, a hoodie of a dabbing unicorn with a sombrero and maraca? There really was no other choice. You can find it on the marketplace here, and you can see all of the 1L items excluding demos here. The hoodie comes in sizes for Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya and is a linden very well spent.

One more note on these marketplace dollarbies – from some light inventory searching most of these items appear to not be past group gifts, so people who are in the group will want to check it out as well. Dollar pie for everyone!

Free Skinnery

I’m rounding out my look with the latest free group gift skin from The Skinnery. It’s part of the illustrious Holiday Special event, which I’ve named “Lelutka & Friends” in my head. Whatever you call it, you can read the details here when Aline first broke the news on FabFree and it’s definitely one not to missed.

The Skinnery‘s free gift is this lovely Eve skin in a long list of skin tones, with brow and no brow versions of each. To get it you’ll need to join The Skinnery group, which is currently free to join. This is a paid group that I assume will go back to having a fee when the event ends after December 30th. You’ll find a whole bunch of other free group gifts in the store as well and in my opinion the group is worth staying to see what others are added.

Twin Cats

Two Cats

Hey FabFree! I have a new feline friend and we decided to go out on a spooky walk together.

To start off, I am showing a few more free gifts from the Halloween Shop & Hop, including:

  • Free eyeshadow from Pout!, which comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included and they are stunning, as is to be expected from Pout!
  • A free HD lipstick applier from Purple for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included.
  • Free mesh spiders that sit so perfectly on your legs from Seance. These are just fantastic! Be careful if you are scared of spiders, as these creep right up on your legs. You do need to join the free Seance group to get this gift, but the gift is in their Halloween Shop & Hop booth.

Two Cats II

  • My striking eyes are the latest group gift from lovelysweet. They come in a darks and lights pack, and they fit all Lelutka Heads, Omega, and BOM.
  • My hairstyle is only 1L from FAGA on the Marketplace. I made the dreaded mistake of leaving the FAGA group when I should have stayed in it, so I was happy that I could pick up this beautiful hairstyle gift for only 1 linden on the MP. I love when that happens. The Mini hairstyle includes an exclusive colour hud of several different colour options.

Two Cats III

  • Lastly, my new cat is the latest free group gift at SEmotion & Libellune. This is an animesh companion, and there are only 8 more days left to get it. It’s so cute!

Have fun, FabFree!

Light Up

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have a quick post showing off some gorgeous eyes and eyeshadow. These items will really make your look light up and “pop”. They are worth grabbing, especially because they are both free.

Joe

First, my eyes are a freebie from Hitori on the Marketplace. These are called the “Joe” eyes. They work with Lelutka EvoX heads only. These eyes include BOM and an HD Applier for Lelutka EvoX heads. The pack includes several eye colours. Each one is stunning!

All About That Booty’s

My eyeshadow comes from a Midnight Madness Board prize at Booty’s Beauty. You need their free group to play, and 50 slaps are needed every day to lock the board and win different makeup prizes.  The Midnight Madness board and lucky chairs are upstairs. You can leave the group each day after your slap is registered, and you will be sent the prizes (if you are low on group spaces).  The eyeshadow I am showing comes in BOM Layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads, and many colour options are included. I am not certain if this particular item will appear on the board again, but they have new items every day! I hope it pops up again for you too because these shadows are stunning! 😉 All the free prizes at Booty’s Beauty on the boards and lucky chairs are fantastic! Note that only the board and lucky chairs on the left side of the wall are for the free group.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Fall Musings

Coming Soon

Can I Go Back?

Ah, September… the month of new beginnings and a new school year is almost upon us. It’s the first day back to school over here where I live! Sometimes I wish I could just go back to school and re-live my college years. Sure, school sucks sometimes and it’s a lot of hard work… but I loved walking around the University quad with a coffee in hand, venturing off to my next lecture and absorbing my mind in the world of higher education. In all honesty, I didn’t have many responsibilities back then besides dedicating myself to learning more about the world. I just loved learning, reading, and discussing ideas, so being in College/University was one of the best times in my life!

…Fast Forward to November

I am an odd one for wanting to go back to school, huh? Well, I am also a bit strange when it comes to my opinions about the seasons of the year. Despite loving the summer months and the time I get off every year, I have a stronger fondness for the Fall. Once September starts, everything becomes a blur with how crazy school and work always becomes! I am sure you can relate. However, I just love fall; it always makes me feel warm inside. Bring on pumpkin season! I am definitely one of those people who waits for pumpkin-spice lattes and Halloween in August. This sweater and skirt outfit I have on in the photo below reminds me of the month of November because it has poppies on it and it looks warm and comfy. This is my type of clothing style! I always prefer fall and winter clothes in both RL and SL, and I simply love this outfit for its fall vibes.

Coming Soon

Get to the point, Caroline!

Well, this has been a fun and poetic exploration of my views about life, higher learning, and the seasons. Now I have two amazing outfits, poses and shoes to show you in my post today, so let’s look at what I found to bring in the fall season!

Two Lovely Limited-Time Outfits

Ari-Pari is the clothing store I am featuring today, and they are currently in the middle of renovating their store. You will find the two gifts shown in my post today at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, which is right HERE. Ariana was so kind that she left out a group gift and a hunt prize from last August a wee bit longer for us, so that no one would miss out. The two lovely outfits shown in my post today are available for a limited period of time at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, a skybox that will be open until mid-September. They are only available for another week or two, so I suggest everyone go now to get them before these great gifts disappear for good.

First, the school uniform shown in the first picture is a 1L promo at the Ari- Pari Temporary Location.  The outfit includes a hud with 10 colour options to change the colour of the skirt and necktie. The base of this school uniform outfit is white. This dollarbie promo was a hunt prize for last month’s Back to School Hunt (which has now ended), but Ari-Pari is keeping this little gem out to grab for a couple more weeks into September due to the store closure in August. Now it only costs 1L and no hunting is required- just look for the PROMO sign and pay the vendor 1L to get the outfit for cheap!

Sizes Included (School Uniform)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Secondly, the pretty poppy-patterned sweater and black skirt with a belt shown in the second photo is the August group gift for group members of the Ari-Pari group. This gift is available for a limited-time. Go get it at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location while it’s still available! Note that there is a group join fee of 25L, but new limited-time monthly group gifts are regularly released for Ari-Pari group members. This outfit includes a colour-change hud for the sweater and the belt, which you can change to 4 different colour and pattern options. The black skirt can be worn with gold or silver metal belt options. 

Sizes Included (Poppy Outfit)

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

The Ari-Pari Temporary Location will be open until mid- September, and I expect these gifts will no longer be available after it closes so go ASAP to get these limited-time promos and gifts! There will be even more group gifts and goodies coming out later when the main store re-opens after renovations, so stay tuned for the upcoming store re-opening!

Two 5L deals from Pacagaia

I have a few more fab deals to share that make up the rest of my look in my welcome-to-fall post today.

  • The poses, coffee, and cell phone shown in both photos come from a great set of bento poses, which costs only 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace.
  • The great shoes are another item that only costs 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace. These shoes fit Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. These are a full fatpack, which includes a hud to change the colours of the shoe (the top and the base) to 25 different textures. They are fantastic! Shout out to FabFree reader Aurora for showing me these – I just love ’em. 🙂

Enjoy, FabFree!

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!

In the wind

Hey FabFam, I know it’s late ( in my part of the world anyway) so I’m going to make this really quick.  As ya’ll know, the 2022 Hair Fair is going strong and hopefully you’ve visited. There are some awesome designers participating this year and many booths have a little gift for us. The best gift, in my opinion, is this lovely photo – op hair from No_Match.

This is “No Press” and you can grab it for free at the No_Match booth. The hair is static but it’s perfect for pictures. Which, you know… we do a LOT of! 🙂  Plus, you get a full fatpack of colors with No Press too. 

I wanted to sweeten my post up a bit, so I rummaged around on the Marketplace and found this cute little flower crown for just 10L! This the “Honey Flower Crown” from Sweet Intoxication. It’s an older build but it still looks very nice and I’m picky about such things. But this one is staying in my closet.

The Hair Fair runs until July 10th so don’t delay!
