Hey gang!

Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely *love* all the pastel colors that show up in the Spring!  They just make me swoon!  It’s the Springtime Swoon!  That’s like being twitterpated but you do it over the colors, the clothes, the hair, the makeup, the flowers, the decor, the freaking everything!!!!  I mean, I got an amazon gift card yesterday and I went all crazy about some pastel colored pens for my Bujo!  Just so refreshing and bright and cheery!  Can you tell I am not much of a winter time gal?  😉

But!  I do digress!  (Picture it, Sicily, 1920….)  I have some amazing goodies for you today!  This adorable outfit I am wearing comes to you from our Fab Free Designer Phoebe ~Piercings & more~.  It is a MIIX Weekend Sale item, the top and bottom are 55L each and they come with a HUD that has pinstripes (so sassy and classy!) in every color your heart desires 20 choices!)!  That’s this weekend, as in *right now* so run and do grab!  They fit:

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin'

“Don’t stop believin’, just hold on to that feelin’…” ~ Journey 

Surely I’m not the only one with a brain full of useless (but totally fun) pop culture information. That said, when I saw this adorable (and free) group gift tee at Reed, I immediately felt like singing the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'” since that’s what the shirt says. The unicorn graphic is also pretty darn cute! Also at Reed are these pretty wristwatches that come in gold, silver (shown), black, and rose. They are free lucky letter board prizes, or you can purchase them all for 75 linden and not have to wait. The group gift shirt, and the Lucky Letter boards will require the Reed group tag, however the group is free to join.

Shirt Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), MeshBody Legacy

On my recent shopping excursion I also picked up some nail polish and eyeshadow from Demicorn. These pretty pastel nail polishes, and my vibrant eyeshadow are two of many group gifts at Demicorn. The Demicorn group is 100 linden to join. The polish has 6 color choices, and the eyeshadow has 5 color combinations to choose from. I have to say I’m very much enjoying these rich colors!

Nail Applier Included – Maitreya Only
Eyeshadow Applier Included – Catwa Only

Happy shopping Fab Free! Now you’ll have to excuse me while I return to my own personal rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin'” while dancing around my living room.

Hey there Fab Free, I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes self care includes a little romance. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking anything tawdry. I mean ambiance, atmosphere, create a place where you feel peaceful, pampered, and can relax. I put on a pretty but comfortable pajama set, lit some candles, and found a soft squishy pillow to snuggle. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, especially during these trying times.

To create my romantic atmosphere I picked up the free Dreamland Designs gift at Gachaland. The Dreamland Designs gift is this beautiful display of lit candles, pink flowers, and petals. The display also has a lovely particle effect to add to the romantic vibes. This squishy pillow by Pillows I’m holding is another free gift at Gachaland. It has a bento hold pose which also worked nicely with my AO. Lastly, my anime-esque girly pink pigtail hairstyle is a free gift at Gachaland by Ayasha. It comes in the single pastel pink color shown. The Gachaland event group is free to join, and you’ll need the group tag to get these and several other free gifts. Just look for the gift boxes (most of them are purple) outside the booths at the Gachaland event.

Hell yeah I am a princess! This pastel hair style by Tram and the dainty pearl headband are giving me serious fantasy princess vibes. Both items are free gifts at the Hair Fair. My lavender princess transformation would not be complete without this glossy lip color by Shiny Stuffs. Oh, and the lippy by Shiny Stuffs is part of a free full palette of lip colors at The Free Dove. Keep reading for info about each of these fabulous freebies, or scroll down for full credits. Have fun Fab Free’rs!

Tram

I love the implied movement of this wispy hairstyle by Tram. It also happens to be a free gift at the Hair Fair. This pretty freebie comes in 2 pastel colors each with resize scripts. To get yours just head over to the Hair Fair and visit the Tram booth.

Cae

There is something special about pearls. This dainty pearl headband is a free gift by Cae at the Hair Fair. The headband can be sized and has a texture change hud that lets you pick from 3 preset options for the metal band, and several pearl variations.  This lovely free gift is waiting at the Cae booth at the Hair Fair.

Shiny Stuffs

I think the lip color I have on in the above photo is really beautiful. This lip gloss color is just 1 of 42 total colors in the new Shiny Stuffs gift at The Free Dove. These lippies come in appliers for Catwa, LAQ, and Genus heads. Look for this free gift, and a few others by Shiny Stuffs in the Makeup section at The Free Dove.

The land of magical unicorns, fairies and everything pastel-hued has often called to me.  And now, since Spring and Easter are literally around the corner, I’m going all the way with my bunny pose and a huge pastel infusion – I got all my sugar-coated goodies fishing in the pond at Sn@tch!

Pastel Pretty

I really enjoy the fishing outfits at Sn@tch.  There’s always something interesting going on.  Today, I got my hair, lipstick, top, skirt, socks and shoes using my 7 Seas Fishing rod which I picked up for 100L at Sn@tch.  You can use it each time you fish in the future!  This outfit comes with 22 different pieces: tube tops in a plethora of hues, this super cute holographic skirt, omega appliers and system layers for the socks, earrings… I could go on for ages!  Don’t take my word for it – go fishing because you’ll fill up your inventory with cute things in no time.

Dreams of Flying

Dream of Flying
Hi There Fab Free! I have something a little different to help brighten your week. The iridescent harness style lingerie is a new Lucky Letter board prize at Moon Amore. I had fun pairing it with the group gift horns from Cubic Cherry. I think the end result is both sweet and sensual. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The Lingerie – I love this unique lingerie set from Moon Amore. I think that even with the influx of harnesses and harness inspired fashion, this stands out. The set has a separate top and bottom so you could wear the pieces alone as well as together. This Lucky Letter board prize also has a color change hud that lets you choose pink, yellow, or blue (shown) for the base color of the iridescent straps. Also, the set is in a single mesh size. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of 30 linden and is required to win the Lucky Letter prizes.

The Horns – These cute down-turned horns are a recent group gift from Cubic Cherry. They come with a color change hud with 6 fun candy colors. The Cubic Cherry group has a one time join fee of 66 linden. There are several group gifts available at Cubic Cherry in addition to these fun interesting horns.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st
