Hiya, news, wonderful news. Store credits so you may sparkle and shine for the rest of the year. Offer ends soonish so act quickly.

Sad But True Story

Telling tales on myself. 🙂 That doesn’t happen often. On New Year’s Eve, some of us Fabby Girl got together to play board games and chat, just have girl time. We are all sitting at the game table, and 3 of the lovely ladies are holding these sparklers, poor Jacx didn’t have said sparkler, so there she sits like a lump on a log, while the other 3 fashionistas are sparkling like nobodies business. LOL. Arielle has a picture, maybe you can get her to share it on a post in the future. Needless to say, the next day first thing Jacx went and got said sparkler, so she too could sparkle and shine.

As usual, I digress from the point of this post. Tutti Belli a rather new store to me, is giving an awesome New Year gift, 800L. store credit. That is like WOW. 2 requirements for having and using this credit, (1) you must join the free to join group, (2) the credits must be used by Jan. 12th. That is one load of makeup for beautiful you! While picking up the credit, Jacx also picked up the free group gifts. Among those lovely gifts is an outstanding lipstick, the free Tutti Belli Replay Collection, with a 9 color applier hud, (sized for Genius, & Lelutka Evolution). It truly is a sure winner.

Jacx is also modeling another group gift from No Match, the No Results comes in 2 different styles via color hud, one with a forehead band and the one without. Included in the group gift are the colors Black/White, Blonde, Brown, Fantasy, Red, & Unicorn. The sweet middle-parted casual mid-length style will be a welcome addition to your SL closet. To pick up this gift, Join the No Match group for 50L. Besides No Results, there are bunches and bunches of other gifts to pick up as well.

TUTTI BELLI 800L STORE CREDIT

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

Sweet Delights

Sweet Delights
Hiya, this year’s advents have been spectacular in the way of awesomeness. The gifts just keep on coming, getting better and better each day. I would like to thank all the wonderful creators in SL, for being so generous, with the gifts and their time, making this truly one of the best Xmas seasons in SL.

Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear

Teddy Bears are a thing again in SL. Or should I say plush toys, I love how SL does as RL where fashion runs in cycles. My favorite cycle is BOM, I just love BOM especially for tops. Lucky for me MOoh has provided this advent some wonderful BOM tops, on 2 different days, Day 16 BOM Sweater Color comes in 4 basic colors (shown). Day 19 is shades of grey colors. Adding to the outfit, MOoh advent day 22 Carol Leggings Winter, seasonal print thermal type pant, with the 4 basic colors plus black. This outfit is just perfect for sitting having cocoa and opening gifts. 🙂 You can obtain these past advent gifts for 25L. each, not sure how long the past gifts will be available so act quickly.

Back with another Santa hat, lol. I do love hats, and I enjoy getting in the spirit of the season. What makes it even better is now more often than not the hair and hat are combined, so much easier, and wearable. Today’s hat & hair combo comes from No Match, the No Chimney hair is the new Dec. GG. This gift has options, male or female, blonde, red, black/white, brown, and even unicorn hair colors. The hud also has 6 colors for the hat. The hair is free, but the group is required, the group join fee is 50L. Tucked in a corner of the store you will find scads more group gifts.

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

Afternoon Walk

Afternoon Walk
Hiya, quicky for today. More time to hit those last events before the big day 🙂

Name That Tune

Enjoying the beautiful changing colors, on an afternoon stroll around the neighborhood with pal Brutus Jr. Trying to remember who made the song playing in the headphones. Modeling a mixed outfit today, from 3 different creators. Starting with Paper Sparrow. Back here I was telling you all the perks involved with belonging to the Paper Sparrow group. One of those perks is 50L store credit every month from the ever generous Miss Bunnie Francis. Jacx has been saving those credits, showing you the Paper Sparrow Imogen Tank Top bought with the credits. This very versatile laced tank, with a delicious 18 color hud, is a true wardrobe mainstay. If you haven’t made it to Halloween Shop & Hop (you have till Oct.31st) to pop over and pick up the free (no group required), awesome Entice Never Surrender Pants, in the most vibrant purple color I have ever seen. Generally purple is not a color choice for me, but these pants are the exception to the rule. (Sized for Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya.)

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physics
  • Venus

Another Pair Of Delightful Shoes

With the events and hunts winding down, time for Lucky Board stalking again 🙂 What is better than a free pair of shoes? LeiMotiv Oriana Heels with a large 20 color hud of prints and solids (Sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) are a great pair of go-to heels. The LeiMotiv group is required for the boards, there are 6 and they change frequently. The group join fee is 75L.

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time,

Jacx

Humm… Wonder if Arielle can get Sir Paul (here) to come sing “Birthday” at this party? 😛

Fabfree & Me

Happy Birthday to FabFree and Happy Rez Day to me. FabFree and I have grown up together since September 6, 2007. It sure has been an exciting and sometimes bumpy ride to get here 14 years later. About a week or so after Jacx was born, listening to music and dancing at my favorite club. I was talking about the struggle to find affordable clothing. When one of my new friends (a guy (LOL) Said to me ” I have this link for a blog where they show free clothes you can get.” This was my introduction to FabFree. From Farrah and Renee, to the lovely ladies of today, they have kept me and my ever expanding, out of control inventory (101,893 and rising) current with gifts, groups to join, awesome pictures to look at. What more could a girl who loves fashion ask for..
So for the last 14 years every morning while drinking coffee and before I log in to SL, I open FabFree to see where I will be shopping that day. LOL. Sure has been a ton of fun. And I thank FabFree and all the ladies past and present, for helping me be one of the best dressed ladies on the grid. 🙂 For todays festivities, Jacx stopped by Entice for the  Springsteen Dress, (free, No group needed). This sweet strapless mini, comes with 3 different party prints.  Pop over to Entice on your rez day and pick up your free gift. Though you can not see ’em, the lovely big hud Jades Wedges, completed the party going fashion.

By the Sea

By the SeaHey Fab Free! It’s a new month, which means new gifts and credits for all in our groups! I got all dolled up in the latest fashions and ready for a day out! It’s time for spring to start peeking through and my little Irish self is starting to pop out for the month of March!

Love from Paper.Sparrow

Bunnie is one of the most generous people I know, and especially to the Paper. Sparrow group members. I just cashed in on their monthly group 300L credit gift, and I used it to cover part of the cost of the Mary Heels colour pack. These shoes are fab! I love the sparklies on the platforms- adorable. Simply join the Paper.Sparrow group for 150L and you can get in on this credit gift every month. There are many items you can buy in the store which will be covered by the credit gift, so look around the store and see what you can treat yourself with!

Sassenach

Any Outlander fans out there? This hair kinda reminds me of Claire Fraser’s 1940s look… maybe it’s just me, but either way, I think this hair is super cute. This hair is yet another past group gift from no.match which I have been trying on lately. Simply join the no.match group for 50 L to get all the steals if you haven’t already. 😉

Well, that’s about it for today, Fab Free! I’m going off to enjoy my day by the sea…

Coming soon

xx

Cuteness

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Valentine’s is the perfect season for looking cute, which we all do. It’s time to get cute ladies, and today I’ll show you how to achieve this great look.

Another 500 L Giftcard!

I am unloading the news of gift credits this week, and Trend has a 500L Credit at their store out for group members. As far as I am aware, this offer ends and the credit expires on the 14th so go quickly. You must join their group to get in on this offer and the group costs 150L to join currently. I purchased the replay eyeshadow and queen eyelashes with the gift. I also grabbed all their group gifts at the back of the store, and a lipstick pack which is a free Second Life Frees & Offer (SLFO) group gift.

The Cuteness

The rest of my cute outfit is made up of freebies and cheapies I’ve been collecting all over the grid. Here are the details of my outfit:

  • The hair is another group gift in the no.match group. This is the “No Addiction” hair, and it is located at the top of the building (cam up to the roof to grab it). The no.match group costs 50 L to join.
  • The dress is a 10 L special by Ari-Pari at the Love Hurts Hunt. You can grab a total of 5 dresses at the hunt for 10 L each (see hunt key below). There are lots of designers offering cheap gifts at this event, and you can find more information about the hunt here.
  • The sparkly nails are a group gift at Ari-Pari, which costs 25 L to Join. The nails come in 6 colour options, and they are super cute.
  • These sandals, which I LOVE, are a free gift from Mangula at the Shop & Hop. They have a free 300 L credit there as well, so grab that reward while you’re there (it expires on Febuary 20th).
  • The pose I am using is also a free group gift at Mirinae. They have a bunch of free group gifts and they are well worth checking out if you are in need of new poses like I always am!

Christmas Cutie

Christmas Cutie

Happy Friday, FabFree! I am gearing up for a fun weekend here in Real Life but I had to pop in to show of this super cute little Christmas present from Safira.

I know we’ve shown y’all a bunch of cute things from under Safira’s Christmas tree so, of course, I had to jump on the bandwagon. The Group is a small fee of 50L to join but there are currently 11 gifts to be had. So that’s… **does math in her head making her eyes cross** 4 and a half Lindens per gift? That’s a bargain any way you slice it!

Top it off

This is the “Amara” top and sleeves. There were so many cute things but I just love this one. Amara comes with detachable sleeves for mixing and matching. There is also a matching skirt under the tree if you want a complete matching outfit.

Size Included

Belleza – Freya, Isis

Maitreya

SLink – Hourglass

Wrapped up in Ribbons

Wrapped up in Ribbons

I’ve gone from Sunday afternoon to Sunday evening today. From casual to “that special night”. Isn’t that the beauty of Second Life? It can be any time any where with just the click of the mouse.

Midnight Lovely

I was visiting various Advents when I popped into one of my favorite designers to grab the free Advent gift for today. Then I saw this gorgeous little number on the group Midnight Mania board. I started clicking and was the lucky last one to lock down the board! This is the Mirana Mini from WellMade. The folder says it’s a mini dress but the silky texture and daring cut makes me think of lingerie.  Mirana comes with a HUD for six delicate colors perfect for that special evening with that special someone. I double checked and it’s still available on the Midnight Mania Board but these things change quickly so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP

Wrapped up for Christmas

My sassy new hair style is from No_Match and it’s half of the latest Group Gift. I say half because there are two totally different styles in the box. This one for the ladies, No Addiction, with the pigtails plus a “snow”, “ice” and “Ribbons” add-on. The other half is for the gents ( or girls who like pixi short haircuts) called No Deer, and it has stag antlers in it. I think I’ll twist Gabriel’s arm and make him show that one off in his next post. Both Hairstyles share an “Essentials” color HUD with a choice of twelve natural colors.

Little Foxes

Little Foxes

Heyya FabFree, happy Tuesday. I hope the week is treating you right. Like a meme I saw… “We can do this week. It’s short and it ends with pie and shopping!”   Hey, add Hunting in Second Life and freebies and I’d say that’s perfect!

Foxy Foxy

I got my Hunting on with a few more items from the Holiday Feast Hunt. This is the ‘Odelia’ sweater from Prairie. Just a little hunting and one little Linden and you can add it to your closet too. I love the little fox, he just looks so happy to be here, doesn’t he?

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Curly Juli

I mentioned freebies and that’s my new hairstyle from No_Match. This is “No Salt” and it’s the current Group Gift.  I have recently been looking at Blender tutorials for making hair and dannnng… it’s hard. And curls are super hard. So the fact that No_Match is giving this curly curly style away for free to the Group members shows how generous this designer is!  Plus you get a HUD for twelve ombre colors.

Something Witchy


Something Witchy

The time when the veil between this world and another more magical realm is at it’s thinnest is near. Something witchy approaches. Or perhaps it’s just me having a wicked fun time in this long stringy hairstyle from No.Match and this vampy black dress from Paper.Sparrow.  To find out more about these fantastic finds, keep reading, or scroll down to the end for full credits. Thanks for reading!

No.Match

This amazingly long hairstyle with the little hair-wrapped horns is a recent group gift at No.Match. It comes in 2 sizes with a fatpack of color choices. The No.Match group is just 50 linden to join.

Paper.Sparrow

I really like doing in-store hunts. They are fun, and generally don’t take terribly long to finish. Paper.Sparrow is having a Halloween themed hunt that you won’t want to miss. There are 7 prizes hidden around the shop at a mere 25 linden each, including the long black sleeveless dress I have on. This hunt is happening now through October 31st.

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza, TMP
