FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Lobsters Need Not Apply

Lobsters Need Not Apply

I have a love-hate relationship with the beach.  You see, I love the sound of crashing waves, the sea breezes, the feel of my toes in the sand… but, beach enjoyment often comes at a price for a fair skinned person like myself.  One minute too long, and we’re in lobster territory.  Plus beaches are often very people-y.  So, I head out to the beaches of SL to find nice wide open spaces, and no risk of lobsterism in sight.

No TP Required

Unlike my search for a secluded spot, shopping on EvoShop takes no effort.  Once you’ve got the HUD, you can shop from anywhere on the grid.   This week, I picked up this dress by Gloss (ooh, cow print!) for just 60L, which is pretty cool since it actually comes in three different patterns.  We all know how in cow print is (inexplicably) this season.  Anywhos, just head on over to EvoShop headquarters, grab the HUD and then shop to your heart’s content.

A Little Love

A Little Love

It’s Friday, and here’s the tee, sis:  It’s time to get cozy, get cute…and get some Fifty Linden Truth!

So Shady

The Shady Seasonal Hunt is back!  When you head on over to the Shady Valley sim, you’ll find that several of the stores are taking part in this hunt.  First, join their free group, then you can add the HUD (not that you have to, but it helps).  Then, head to each participating store to find the fuzzy little teddy that’s holding a heart.  Each prize is just 20L.  I’m in the prizes from Seka (this sweet top) and Mug (the panties that just seem to go with perfectly!).  You’ll find all the other prizes listed in the HUD as well.  You’ve got until February 16th to pick ’em up!

I Only Speak the Truth

Another round of Fifty Linden Fridays is upon us, and Truth are participating again this week!  Excitemeeeeent!  The lovely Trinket hairdo comes with several different styling options and a very extensive hair colour HUD.  You’re sure to find something that works for you.  There are two locations where you can nip off to get this hairstyle:  HERE and HERE.  If you don’t get in right away, they have kept it out all weekend in the past, so perhaps the same will happen this time!  Fingers crossed!

Hope your weekend is lovely!

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

Cae is Closing… </3

I’m very sad by the recent news that one of my favourite jewelry stores is closing. Cae will be leaving SL at the end of June, so make sure you stop by the store and grab all their free gifts before they go away forever. My bracelets, earring and adorable necklace are all free gifts from Cae, and the group is free to join. Cae also has a 75% off sale so load up before the gorgeous jewels are gone forever!

A Boho Set

Coming Soon

Phew, I’m getting tired FabFree! This is a lot of freebies to gab about all at once. I hope I don’t overload you. Finally, I wanted to show off an amazing Boho furniture and decor set at Careless. This provided the perfect new set for my skybox, and it costs only 25L. Yes, 25 L for the couch, rugs, tapestries, lights, cushions, cactus, table, all of it… incredible! Such a steal! I got the adult set and it is the same price as the PG. Just waltz over the Careless and grab this set for a low price. 

See you soon, FabFree!

Avoidance Tactics

Avoidance Tactics

Today I’ve decided to thoroughly avoid vacuuming.  I usually manage to make it happen by blaring some loud, inappropriate music, but today I’m just going on strike.  The floors will have to stay semi-dusty for a day longer.  Instead, it’s time for some really intense doing of nothing.  I’m exceptionally good at that!

In My Mug

There’s a new group gift over at Mug!  Their gift wall is pretty well filled with cute gifts, and this little peekaboo tank is equal parts chill and sexy.  To get it, just join the Mug group for 250L, then click on the vendor.  You’re sure to find some other cute items while you’re there too.  Don’t forget that all the sizes are located in the HUD when you get clothing from Mug!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Maitreya Flat
  • V-Tech
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Freya
  • Kupra

Henlo Fren!

Wasabi are making my day today with this awesome new gift!  It’s billed as a group gift, but you don’t have to join a group to get it – it’s more of a subscriber type of thing.  Just click on the vendor (on your left when you enter the store) and you’ll be asked if you want to join, then the gift is yours.  In other words, it’s completely free.  I just love all the different sayings on the hat.  Way too much fun.

New group gift in store - Ermahgerd hair!

What are you avoiding today?

This Creature is Stirring

This Creature is Stirring!

Happy Christmas FabFree!  I was thinking about taking a day off from blogging, but that just isn’t my style…now is it?  I hope you’re all having a lovely day basking in the glow of Christmas tree lights, and I hope that even if you’re not physically with your peeps, that you still feel the love from afar.  And if you’re not in the mood for it, then I hope that SL is offering you a bit of a respite from RL, which can sometimes get a bit harrowing!   Let’s get to some freebies, shall we?

Who Wears Short Shorts?

Time for a bit of a chill out, and Pink Flamingos are all over that cute booty short look that is perfect for lazing about.  These shorts come with an Omega applier as well as system layers.  There’s also a cute white lacy top in the box too, if you’re feeling a bit coquette.  The Pink Flamingos group is free to join!

Free ;D

Sock to Me!

I also came across these quite festive socks over at StephaneL.  I guess they’re more leg warmers, which you know I love cuz it makes me think of the 80’s!  They come in several different festive hues, and excitingly, there are also a pair of heels included so you could dress them up if you want to hit the town.  The StephaneL group is currently free to join (it is usually paid!), so head on over today! (Don’t forget to grab the other nice gifts while you’re at it!).

Sizes

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

And the Crowning Glory…

I’m kind of liking this whole “show the Fab readers a new free hairstyle every day” thing that has been happening recently… I’ve got another one for you!  This time, it comes courtesy of Ayashi.  This long brown hair with red kitty hat is just so cool.  I love it!  The Ayashi group is free to join (there is also a paid group, but this gift comes from the free group!) – go grab it!

I hope you’re all doing well, FabFree.
Happiest of Christmases to you and yours,

A Royal Mess

A Royal Mess

I woke up this morning knowing that what my soul required for a bit of respite was some very beautiful Christmas cookies!  I pottered off to the kitchen to whip, mix, bake and make a royal mess.  It took me a bit of time, and I’ve left a bit of a disaster behind me…but the cookies my heart desired are here!  A bit of Christmas magic never goes awry.

What’s This?  More Gifts!

I know we’re all drowning in the generosity of so many awesome designers right now, but I’ve found even more goodness to keep you busy picking up, unboxing and trying on.  Your inventory may hate me by the end of all this, but I’m sure you won’t mind more goodies!  I made my way over to Access and found that they’re spoiling us with a maaaassive pile of gifts.  There are also loads of gifts for the guys there, so make sure you pass on the word to any guys looking for goodies.  Here’s what I picked up that really inspired me to put together this baking scene:

  • FREE Shirt by Redgirl sized for Legacy and Maitreya in a full fatpack of different texture options
  • FREE Knickers by Mug sized for Maitreya, Freya, Legacy and Kupra and different bulge options for unisex wear (sizes are in the HUD)
  • FREE Choker by Seka with dark, light and pink versions
  • FREE Cookies by WetCat (if someone clicks the plate, it gives them a cookie!)
  • FREE Baking and Kitchen clutter by Tentacio (17 items in the box!)

This round of Access is running until January 8th!

Om nom nom!
