FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Pink Roses

Pink Roses

Hey Hey FabFree! Today ( or tonight as it pretty late here…) I am whole heartedly celebrating the FREE in the Fabulously Free name. I’ve got my entire outfit here for FREE. The top… the skirt… even my shoes. And all I had to do was join the WIB Event group, also for free.

I do love big events with tons of free gifts and WIP certainly fits the mold. Tons of great shopping, tons of great free gifts = tons of fun, right? So lets get to the goodies.

Starting at the top is my lovely headband from Azul. Adorned with pale pink lilies and a falling petal, it fits with my new dress like it was made for it.

Speaking of my new sundress, this is ‘Sweet Spring’ from 1Hundred. Anytime I see 1Hundred has a gift out, I know it’s going to be a good one. And I am not disappointed with Sweet Spring. I love the soft watercolor vintage roses on the fabric. Make me think sunny Summery thoughts.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Last but not least, my pretty new heels from Mosquito’s Way look like they were made just for my new dress too. These are ‘Jennifer’ and you get this delicate soft pink in the gift. Very elegant I must say!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

The WIP Event runs until June 22, so don’t waste any time… get to shoppin’!

The Problem with Modern Art

The Problem with Modern Art

Time to do a bit of random wandering by myself today.  Some days I just need a bit of peace and quiet so that I can face the onslaught of humans who generally clamour for my attention.  So, off to an art gallery I go to ponder over the meaning of modern art.  Full disclosure, I am not a modern art kind of gal.  I’m all about the Botticellis and Waterhouses of the world, but sometimes…I head towards the modern art section if I need a giggle.  I’m sorry to all the aficionados out there, but I can’t keep a straight face when someone puts a chain link fence in a museum and tells me I need to seek it’s deeper meaning.  But…I will have a private chuckle.  😉

Happy Anniversary!

Ah yes, FabFree…time for another event stuffed to the gills with free goodies for us!  WIP Event is celebrating one year of existence, and for that we must toss some confetti, and grab some free gifts!  Join their free group, and then click on the gifts at each booth.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Dress by To.Kiski sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass & Physique
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink & TMP
  • FREE Phone by Tantrum
  • FREE Necklace by Modish

There’s so so much more to discover there, so pencil it onto your weekend to do list!

Ooh, look a giant hamburger posing as modern art!

Spring, Do Your Thing

Spring, Do Your Thing

It’s usually around this time of year that I start grumbling about the fact that it’s not spring-like enough for me yet.  My part of the world tends to skip right over the pleasant part of blossoms and warm winds and whatever other things they try to tell you about in poems and books.  We get this greyish muddy season until May when things finally explode with life.  So, as per usual, I’m off to the fairer climes of SL to get in my Springtime cavorting.

Sounds Tasty

Pink Cream Pie has a new group gift for their members right now.  It’s this cute criss-crossed tank top that’s calling out Spring to “do it’s thing”.  And I couldn’t agree more!  To get yours, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L and then click on the vendor in the group gift area upstairs.  There are lots of nice gifts and new ones monthly, so totally worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

The Way it Goes

Mosquito’s Way (always one of my faves) also has a new group gift out, and they’re just so pretty I can hardly handle it.  These sweet flower-adorned pumps will have you ready for Spring in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.  You can get yours by joining the Mosquito’s Way group for 50L and then clicking on the vendor by the front desk.  There are a bunch of other awesome gifts too near the front doors.  These pretty heels come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Come on Spring!  GEEZ!

Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Well well well… the weekend is inching closer, and I for one am completely and utterly ready for it.  I’m ready to kick back with a cute outfit and possibly some whiskey (though, I’ll make a really insane face when I drink whiskey…the type of face that means “why did I just ingest that?”).  Let’s get on the fast track to weekending!

Three Stops

I feel like a proud parent showing my child off these days with all the goodies from the FabFree St. Patty’s Day hunt.  I’m sure you’ll forgive me a little, because they’re all so bloomin’ nice!  It’s also so exceedingly exciting that some of my absolute favourite designers are taking part, three of which I’m featuring today!  Here’s what I’ve got going on:

  • 5L top from Lybra sized for Alice, Ebody, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Physique & Tonic
  • FREE shoes from Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya & Slink
  • Whiskey set from Ishiku at 5L for each part of the set (4 parts)

Don’t miss these awesome prizes, they won’t be around for very long, and they really, REALLY are fantastic.  See all the hunt keys HERE!

Big hugs,

A Brief Respite

A Brief Respite

Valentine’s Day always falls in the dead of winter where I live, so the bright red and pink hearts that permeate the world at this time really perks up what is usually a cold, dreary month.  Instead of ruminating on the piles of snow outside, I choose to go and frolic among the spring meadows of SL, taking just enough time to smell the roses.

Slip Into It

The latest group gift from COCO has made its appearance, and it’s this slinky slip dress that is sexy in a kind of nonchalant way.  I can just imagine the silky material flowing gracefully over every curve of one’s body.  The best part is, it’s completely free when you join the free COCO group.  There are so many lovely gifts there, and new ones are always popping up, so a great group to stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Heel, Toe!

Mosquito’s Way have updated the group gift section again, much to my excitement.  They always have such well-crafted and pretty gifts for their members, that I always feel a little thrill of excitement when a new one pops up.  Join the group for 50L, and you’ll be able to pick up these pretty ombré heels come in three different colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Ahh, sunshine.  Forgot what that looked like!

Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime

Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime

Heya FabFree!

Happy Friday!  I am filled with Christmas spirit today, and heading off into the woods for some general prancing and merrymaking.  I love The Forest sim far too much (it usually disappears the rest of the year, so I gotta cram it in now!) and this super Christmassy outfit was exactly the right look for frolicking in the lights and snow!

All The Things

I’m sending you to three different locations today, and I’m feeling a bit non-verbose, so I’ll keep it simple for ya.  I picked up my dress, gloves, jewelry and shoes all for free, and here are the deets:

  • Free dress and gloves by Maai sized for Maitreya.  Grab this one by joining the MGSN group for free, and clicking on the vendor at the landing point.
  • Free shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP .  The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join.  You’ll find this one on the wall to the right of the front desk!
  • Free earrings by ChicChica.  No group to join here, just click on the box on the front counter!  There’s also a matching ring in the box.

I hope my quick rundown of what I’m wearing wasn’t too jarring, I promise I won’t be so lazy in the future.  It’s Friday and I am raaaather exhausted from the day’s exploits!  Here are the vendor photos for the smaller items so you can see the detail.

All in the Dark

All in the Dark

Time for a bit more creepy and smidge more crawly.  Well, maybe none of that, but definitely a lot more fancy, dark and free!  I just love October.  It’s so filled with lovely things, and there are oh so many to be had in Second Life!

Back to Shopping and Hopping

The Halloween Shop & Hop is still going strong, and you’ll certainly be able to shop a little more lag free now that the event has been on for a while.  You have until November first to make your way through the eight sims filled with goodies!  You don’t need a group for any of these freebies!  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • FREE Dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya Petite, Maitreya and Perky in 12 Colours
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink in 8 Colours
  • FREE Drink by Dahlia

Lovely!

Of Pink and Black

Of Pink and Black

I’ve always been a massive fan of pink and black mixed together.  I think it’s probably because it’s tickles both of my fancies: innocent, happy and child-like fun and a bit of mysterious darkness.  If you throw in a reference to Alice in Wonderland, then just colour me the happiest little avatar this side of the grid.

The Monster Mash

The Monster Mash Hunt is in full swing, and that means a bit of hunting and a lot of well-priced goodies.  I got this awesome dress over at Cats n Kittens Boutique!  It of course references my fave – the Cheshire Cat, and only cost me 1L, and a little bit of hunting.  This hunt gives you the option to search and get the prize for 1L, or if you can’t be bothered with searching, you can buy the gift for 25L near the entrance of the store.  Look for the little Halloween cutout (you’ll see an example by the poster) and it’s yours!  You’ll find all the hints and photos of gifts on their website HERE.  The Monster Mash Hunt runs until October 31st.

Sizes

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

Stepping Out

These bubblegum pink platforms are the antithesis of anything dark, and you can get them as the latest group gift from Mosquito’s Way.  I always enjoy their gifts, as they are super well constructed and very pretty.  To get them, join the Mosquito’s Way group for FREE and click on the vendor by the front desk.  There are other gifts near the entrance too!  These platforms come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Time for ice cream… strawberry or black charcoal?  Hmm…

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.
