Hey FabFree! I’m feeling very mellow today, very much a wander in the meadows following the butterflies sort of feeling. Maybe it’s the beautiful SIM. Maybe it’s time of year. It could be the beautiful BoHo blouse and skirt I found over at the Witchwood Petite Mort Spring BoHo Hunt!

I do love it when two of my favorite designers team up for one of their awesome Hunts and sales! The Spring Hunt is accompanied this year by a huge sale in both stores. You can get 50% off the entire store until May 7! This does exclude Gachas and New items but it still leaves a ton of great bargains! 

The Hunt is happening between the stores and you can pick up a notecard at the landing point with clues and info and a cute little rose basket for free. Each item on the hunt is priced between 10L to 20L. I have never been disappointed with anything I ever got from Oubliette or Petite Mort and these Hunt items are no different. The details, textures and build are all perfect!  So don’t let anything stop you from loading up on these gorgeous spring clothes!  The Hunt and sale run until May 2 so don’t delay.

Wandering

Wandering

Hey FabFree! If you haven’t heard of “Wanderlust Weekend”, I am here to give you the big scoop. Wanderlust features really high quality shops and designers offering some of their absolute best items for just 50L. That’s less than most Gacha pulls and there’s no element of chance here. You can easily find items that would normally cost hundreds of Lindens on sale for 50L. I once picked up a piece of landscaping décor and saw it Monday back at it’s regular price of 550L! So you should really check this out!  Here on their website you can see the pictures of the items being offered and get the LMs or use the HUD that updates each Wanderlust weekend.

I had to go grab this gorgeous new hair, Molly, from Mina first thing. I love the cascade and the hint of movement in it. Mina always has such good hair! You can get Blondes, Browns, Reds, Grays and Pastels color packs, each for the special 50L price.

Next on my ‘wandering’ was one of my favorite designers: Oubliette! So of course I had to go there too. I just love this dress! This is ‘Aurora’ and you can pick from three colors, the Lavender Galaxy I’m wearing, Frost and Midnight. Each for the special price. Heck, you can buy all three colors for less than most dresses!

Sizes Included

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

So grab your HUD and get to wandering! The Wanderlust Weekend only lasts until Sunday midnight then poof, it’ll fade away.

Way Up There

Way Up There
Yaaaaaay Happy Friday, FabFree!  I don’t know about you, but I am suuuuper ready for a bit of R&R.  I put on my pyjamas, grabbed a cup of hot chocolate and nestled myself into the couch, when all of a sudden I heard some tinkling bells coming from the outside world…. I headed out into the snow, and what to my wondering eyes should appear?  You guessed it – it was Jolly old St. Nick himself up in the clouds, waving and ho-ho-ho-ing.  I’m 96% sure that I wasn’t hallucinating…hmm…

Yay, Advent!

I do love me some Advent.  There are so many awesome gifts to pick up inworld that it is hard to keep up!  Are you one of those people who manages to do it every day?  I’ve heard of some intrepid souls who do the WHOLE FabFree list every day, and my hat is off to you!  I needed to lie in a dark room after just writing the list!  Anyway, one of the Advent calendars that has recently appeared is the two at Petite Mort and Oubliette!  A new gift appears every day.  They’re free, no group join required, AND they don’t disappear after the day, so if you miss one you can head back and grab.  But don’t wait… they’ll all disappear on the 25th!  I grabbed the gifts from Days 1 & 4 from Oubliette to make my little comfy (and a bit witchy) outfit.  So cute, right?

Sizes

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

 

There are also some great deals in the store while you’re at it – like 75L super adorable PJ pants!

Eye on the Prize

Another free gift I picked up today is this sparkly and intense eye shadow applier from La Malvada Mujer.  I joined their free group to pick up this striking makeup.  There’s also matching lipstick if you fancy it!  The Mosquito eyeshadow comes with an Appliers for Lelutka Evo, Genus, Omega and BOM layers and comes in a whole host of pretty, sparkly hues.  Woot!

Ok, I’m starting to get cold out here!

Hello again Fab Free! Thank you for being here. So recently a friend of mine told me about an almost too good to be true sounding store credit gift at Moss&Mink. Needless to say, I had to check it out for myself. She was right, Moss&Mink has a 500 linden store credit offer out that is free for everyone. There’s no need to join a group for this awesome gift, however if you’re so inclined you can join the Moss&Mink group and get a second 500L store credit for a total of 1000 linden in store credit at Moss&Mink.

That said, I opted to forgo the additional 500 linden for Moss&Mink group members and just take advantage of the no-group-needed store credit offer. All you have to do to get yours is head over to Moss&Mink and click the gift credit vendor.  If you’re not familiar with Moss&Mink, they are a furniture and décor shop with lots of detailed items for just about every room in the house, and outdoor items too. The style is modern with some bohemian flair and a touch of kawaii. After wandering through the landscaped outdoor shop, I settled on a classic desk and bookshelf set and a matching desk accessories. I was able to get both the furniture and the desk décor for less than my 500 linden in store credit, making my purchases completely free.

***To use the store credit you must click the vendor and use the pie menu to bring up the “Menu” and choose “Buy” then choose the “Store Credit” option.***

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

In My House

In My Home

Hey Fab Free! I have a few really cool freebies to show you, which is almost everything in this photo except for my hair. Let’s start with the decor, and then move on to my outfit after.

Hip Decor

This great wall tapestry is amazing, and a free gift at Petite Mort. It’s called the “Compassion tapestry” and it’s branded with a number of slogans about human rights and social issues. It works perfect in my living room, so I was quite pleased with this gift! No group is needed for this gift, just buy it for 0L on the gift shelf at Petite Mort.

I am also showing a couple of free stay at home club gifts by Rune Creation, including this funky chair and the camo rug. There are a whole wall of free stay at home gifts, so collect them up while you still can.

The Outfit

The top I have on is another free gift at Petite Mort, which you can also get for 0 Linden.  You can’t see it very clearly in my photo, but it says “Black Lives Matter” on it and it fits perfect. I love it, plus is goes with my new banner perfectly. The skirt, which I simply adore, is currently a free lucky letter prize at Oubliette, the partner store of Petite Mort, which needs the free group to win.

Sizes included (Top & Skirt):

Back to Your Roots

Back to Your Roots

Back before I blogged for Fab Free, I was sure I had a very distinct and settled style.  I loved dark, gothy things and I had a special place in my heart for pastel goth.  I mean, I still do!  But when you become a blogger, you have a tendency to forget your personal style for the greater good and in order to “sell the garment, sweetie!”.  But now and then I come across a cute item to blog that brings me back to my fashion roots faster than you can say “dark and brooding”!

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette!  There are four different items up on the boards right now, and right now I’m showing off two.  The peekaboo (very peekaboo…) lace skull dress is so appealing that I knew I had to wear it.  Of course, I added some pasties for modesty – but it is quiiiite see-through.  I also grabbed the underwear there too, which feature a very nice touch of lacing up the sides.  The two items go very nicely together, I think, but they can also be worn separately.  To gain access to these cute and creepy items, just join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!  While you’re at it, you could check the lucky boards across the sim at Petite Mort which are new too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

  • TMP (panties only)

It’s officially Summer now, and that means that it’s time to dig in and get some planting done.  Me and Pru and ready for a bit of planting and gossiping, which will clearly be followed by some lemonade on the porch.   We’re getting in touch with nature again!  Hooray for the summertime!

Which Wood?

Witchwood (aka Oubliette and Petite Mort) are back on the hunting circuit with their very own Summer Festival hunt!  It’s filled with lovely summery, slightly boho outfits that will have you feeling like you’re in touch with nature before you know it!  The items are all priced from 10 – 20L and can be mixed and matched very nicely.  You can see which items Pru and I have got on in the credits below, and I’ve added the hunt key so you can see what’s on offer!  The Summer Festival hunt at Witchwood is running until July 5th!

Home Sweet Home

The lovely house Pru and I are hanging out in front of is the latest Stay at Home Club gift from Trompe L’Oeil!  To get it, just head over to their landing point and pay 0L.  The chairs on the front porch are also available for free there, and they look so inviting that I don’t know how much gardening we two will get done in the end!  As we often say in SL…you can never have too many houses!  And when they’re free…one just can’t resist!

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza Freya

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.
