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.

Over the fields of snow

Over the fields of snow

Hello, FabFree! I know Christmas is over but a bunch of designers have left their gifts out for us slowpokes to pick up. Like one of my absolute favorites – Teegle.  You know I love my Teeglepets and I’m always on the look out for new gear for  them.  So I was thrilled when I found the loaded Christmas tree at the Teegle main store was still up.

There is a ton of freebies under the Teegle tree but this on is just so special. This is the Snow Drifter Sleigh from Out on a Whim. This classic Cutter Sleigh comes in several versions. One for Horse avatars, one for Teeglepets, one for wearable horses, even one for just display. It’s a beautiful build and I am just so excited to hook Mystic up and go dashing through the snow!

Now, I do NOT know how much longer the gifts will be available over at Teegle. So get over there and scoop  ’em up while you can. Even if you don’t want this sleigh, there are tons of other goodies. Like blankets, tack and skins for your ponies!

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 Halloween!  I’m just having a little breather before tonight’s festivities.  You can’t ever spend too much time in the golden hued woods, if you ask me!

Ooh, Witchy Woman

It’s time for a new group gift from Petite Mort!  This cute cropped tee is absolutely awesome, and I’ll probably wear it forever.  It’s completely free when you join the Petite Mort group for free.  You’ll also find a new gift on the Oubliette side of the sim too, so do head over there and check out their gifts.  When you join the group, you also gain access to the lucky boards.  I got these sweet cropped jeans by waiting for my letter to come up, and I think they match the top rather perfectly!

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Wild Rabbit

Fabfree Post: Wild Rabbit

A Wild Bunnie Has Appeared…

It’s almost time for the creepy side of things with Halloween coming closer! Here we see the discovery of the Wild Bunnie in her element. The forest surrounding the Mainstreet Shops is where you can normally hear her screams between the bustling crowds and the car horns. She hunts for deals to bring back to the collective hive, the queen is given the best of the finds while everyone trades their goodies with the other Wild Beasts in the Castle. If you spot her say hi, she is wild but she will not bite ^^

 

Boo’D uP.oses has a cute name and with it an amazing free gift over at the Pose Fair! You can snag this amazing gift for yourself with the group tag on. No worries if you don’t have it I’ll post it below for you to copy/paste in local chat.

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):

Gardening Gals

Gardening Gals

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!

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.
