Stopping By

Coming Soon

Hey Fabs! It’s been a long week, and I’m happy some rest time is coming soon. I have a quick post to hold you over until the weekend!

  • My shoes and socks are a group gift at MOoH! for members of the Third Life group. Their group currently costs 10L to join. These fit Lara, Physique, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.
  • My cute hairstyle is one of the many group gifts at no.match. It comes in a full pack of colours. I love this casual short style. A one-time join fee of 50L is required to get all the gifts. Just TP to the huge gift room from the map at the landing point and you will find a room flooded with group gifts! It’s worth it, trust me. 😉

Enjoy, FabFree!

A Fragile Line

A Fragile Line

I’m being all artsy in my picture today, which is something that I try to avoid when I blog here because I want to make sure you get a good look at the things that I’m showing. In this case though, my vibe totally shows off the things that I want to tell you about and I just love that. What are they? We’ll I’m glad that you asked…

Uber Style

As you may or may not already know, the Uber event is having an anniversary. You’ll go to the mainstores of all of the designers and that’s where the free gifts are. Of course you’ll need a list of what stores to visit and would you believe that Aline MADE one for us to use – you can find her handy dandy list as well as full Uber details here. From Uber I’m wearing:

  • The free gift hair from no.match. OMG how cool is this hair? If you like to take pictures this one is definitely for you. It’s free when you click on the brown gift box at the no.match mainstore and includes everything that you need – various rigged and unrigged versions, multiple HUDS with colors to pick from, and even hair bases. All for free with no group join required!
  • I also got my skirt for free, from True Damage. It’s such a perfect metallic loose mini, and there are sizes for Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn. I love it with the little cropped tank that I’m wearing, but I’m sure that you can think of tons of ways to style yours!

Uber is still going strong and you’ve got until September 22nd to make your rounds, or even just cherry pick from Aline’s list! ❤

Serendipity

One of my favorite things about aaaaall of the events in SL, is finding new-to-me stores and going there to check out their freebies and other items in store. That’s how I came across Serendipity. Here you’ll find lots of pose and some other sweet little accessories as well, but mostly poses. The particular pose that I’m using today is from the Elodie set, which is free with a click, no group join required.

Decor Galore

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I am getting cozy in my PJs and enjoying this pretty new bed set I found! My entire decor scene is made of free hunt prizes and group gifts today. I have some time-sensitive freebies to share in this post, so I’m going to jump right to it so you can get them too!

I Love Kazza

I was delighted to discover that Kazza is participating in the Aurelias Egg Hunt. This hunt ends today, so go ASAP to get their hunt prizes! Both of Kazza’s prizes are free, and you are looking for eggs on the sim to find them. The first prize is the “BytheSea” bed, which comes in Adult and PG versions with options to change the colour of the bedsheets to blue and white or pink and white. The second prize is the carpet, pillows, and table. The pillows include animations that are meant to be used on the carpet. I’m in love with these finds, and they are my personal favourites from the Easter season this year. Don’t delay and collect up the prizes today before it’s too late.

New at Noveny

I’m not sure how new these gifts are at Noveny, but they were new to me! All of their gifts are by the landing point. Here are the gifts I am showing from Noveny in my scene this morning:

  • The rectangular wall shelf with the plant and sculpture on it is a TeleportHub group gift. Just join the TeleportHub group for 10L and the gift is yours for no cost!
  • The leaf-shaped wall structure is a group gift for members of Noveny’s group. Their group currently costs 30L to join. This is a pretty cool item, because the Noveny logo is a leaf and it’s a nice homage to the store! You can resize the shelves to fit your needs. You may choose to decorate these shelves with smaller decor items (plants, food, books, etc.) to make your scene look pretty.
  • The little lightbulb sculpture that I decorated the shelf with is another Noveny group gift. If you look closely inside the lightbulb, there is dirt and a small tree growing inside it. This is a “terrarium” and it’s really pretty. The Noveny group has some other group gifts as well and they give out gift cards sometimes so it’s worth the join fee if you love home and decor items.

Enjoy decorating your homes, FabFree! I’m going to go back to lounging in my PJs on this fine morning. 😉

The War is in Color

No War & Why Her?

“Now I lay in my grave at age 21

Long before you were born

Before I bore a son

What good did it do?

Well hopefully for you

A world without war

A life full of color.” 

The War Was in Color, Carbon Leaf

Our hearts ache for our Ukrainian friends.  In SL, we all probably know someone directly impacted by the horrors of the Russian-Ukrainian war. We feel helpless; they might feel hopeless. How do we help?

This newest couples pose from Something New struck me as being entirely appropriate for these aching times.  “Why Her?” is available for L100 at the Pose Event running until April 19th.

On the same day I picked up the pose, No.Match released their recent charity hairstyle, No_War.  The hair is beautiful, and 100% of the proceeds go to Ukrainian Aid efforts.  I not only bought my customary blonde pack for 50L, but then went on and bought the fatpack (of colors I will never wear) for 200L.  The braids can be worn with or without the “Dandelion” add-on of blue and yellow ribbons and flowers.

No War & Why Her?

We feel so helpless in real life to help our Ukrainian friends.  We can’t go help; we can’t provide a warm bed or a comforting hug.  But, what we CAN do is remember them daily.  Honor them daily.  Wear their colors of blue and yellow.  Fly their flag.

Innocent people are dying, and even if we can only stand up virtually, let’s stand together for peace. Create scenes like this one to remind us that this war, like all wars, is in color.

Mystical Beauty

Mythical Market Hunt
Hunts are really one of my favorite things to do in SL.  I also like events.  It’s awesome to see all the different creators come together and offer fresh new styles.  I love an event that is themed AND has a hunt, and I was not at all disappointed in the Mystical Market Love Potion Edition Event & Hunt.  The hunt items are 10L but no group is needed, but you can view them here in advance.  BUT, definitely go to each store because there are free gifts, too.

Most everything in the picture above was found in the hunt or as a freebie.  Let’s dig in!

The outfit by QE Designs is actually labeled as pajamas (Veronica pajamas – Dark Vintage Lace), but I would totally wear this to a club.  It comes with a 4-color HUD including black, berry, and blue (and the purple I am wearing).  Cost: 10L (Hunt)

The Outfit!

The Hottie Heels are made by Grumble and come in red.  They are really cute (and look very sharp – both literally and figuratively).  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Potion Necklace by Little Bat comes in two versions: Love or Hate.  I am a lover, so I went with Love for the picture.  You can click to resize it.

The Love Potion Paper Earrings are made by Byrne and are super cool.  First, they come in pink, purple, and red, but each color also comes with both a static and a glow version that blinks slowly!  I am wearing the glow version, but you really can’t see them blinking.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Earrings Glow!

The circular tapestry rug by QE Designs is really pretty, and this is one of three FREE gifts in the QE shoppe at the Mystical Market. Cost: FREE!!!

The red and black Gothica Pillows come with red wine glasses and are by Angelic Designs.  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The rose and thorns decor by Love is so pretty.  You can resize this and it works on the ground or on a mantlepiece.  Cost 10L (Hunt)

The backdrop is called Black Witch Moth Tapestry by Dragon Magick Wares.  It’s resizable which I loved!  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The Gothic Valentine’s Gift Boxes by Laminak come in 4 styles.  They have little skulls on them and the ribbon colors differ on each box.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The pose is from Something New called Just Take My Heart at the Cheeky 69 event.  It comes with both the pose and the little heart.  Cost 69L (Event).
