Unicorns, Snowflakes & Multi-coloured Trees

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m hanging out at the gorgeous Mystic Dreamers Mall, the home of Shanti & New Monday. Look at the gorgeous unicorn statue and the colourful tree! The decorating is so pretty. This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!

Marketplace Hunter

Coming Soon
I’ve been doing a lot of Marketplace freebie hunting lately… mostly because I’m just too tired to come online lately and go shopping. Sad, I know. But one of the perks of this recent trend is that I’ve found so many cool sales as well as some freebies on the MP!

Glow!

Glow has a load of free poses on the Marketplace. There’s a tonne, as everything on their MP store is completely free! These are great gifts for bloggers and photo lovers alike! I’m not sure how long these will be available, so scoop them up now.

Can you spare 10 Lindens?

Going back to those sales I mentioned, I have two items I found today for sale on the Marketplace for only 10L each:

  • This amazing ice crown is currently on sale for 10 L at Pure Poison, available only on the Marketplace. This item is amazing with how detailed it is! It comes with a colour hud to change the flowers and other parts of the crown.
  • My lovely lipstick is from another 10L sale item, which is a fatpack of lipsticks by Synnergy. You can purchase it on the MP here. It’s a lovely set! This lipstick applier works with Lelutka Evolution & EvoX heads only.

Winter Feels

Finally, my striking eyeshadow is the latest group gift at Pout! This comes from an eyeshadow set in different colours with unique patterns on them. You can grab this freebie at the Pout! mainstore when you join their free group gift. These shadows come in an HD makeup applier that only works on Lelutka EvoX heads.

See you soon, FabFree!

Artfully Done

Artfully Done

Nothing like a Tuesday artistic interlude.  One of the best things about SL is always being able to switch up your interiors, your exteriors, and who knows what else.  I love decorating in Second Life, though sometimes it becomes rather time consuming and I have to take a step back before I lose my mind.  An easy way to change things up without pulling out all your hair is always through artwork, and I think I have just the place for you if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration…

First Things First

It’s all about the clothing for me in SL, most days, some of which is definitely wearable art.  I’ll first tell you about where I picked up this stunning sparkly dress!  Head on over to Posh Event, and there you’ll find that several of the designers have put out free gifts for everyone.  No need to join a group, just buy the gift for 0L.  I grabbed this cool dress (what a slit!) over at the Luna Chelsea booth (it comes with a rather extensive HUD, and also a little ribbon belt too), but there are quite a few other gifts too if you’re looking for more goodies.  The Posh Event runs until January 23rd!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Museum Visit

It’s always fun to discover new places in SL, and I was contacted about the Free Museum, which is exactly what it purports to be:  a museum filled to the gills with free artwork.  Yep, you can even take it all home with you.  Just buy the artwork for 0L, and put it up wherever your heart desires.  There are even statues so you can go full Guggenheim when the fancy strikes.  What a cool idea!  I hope you have a fun time discovering your new favourite artists.

Have an artistic evening!

Bright & Cheery

Bright and Cheery

Today I’m feeling like I need some bright colours to get my posterior into gear.  You know those days where you don’t really feel like you can get too much done without a kick in the pants.  Well, today I’m getting a kick in the pencil skirt courtesy of some shockingly bright colours!

Back to Belle Epoque!

The last few weeks have been full of surprises over at Belle Epoque – from their 6th anniversary hunt, to new gown group gifts, I found yet another little surprise in the form of this super bright and cheery bodycon dress.  It comes with a rather extensive HUD, so if the brightness isn’t up your alley, there are plenty of other choices too.  To get  yours, join the Belle Epoque group for just 10L, and click on the vendor.  Plenty of other awesome group gifts to pick up while you’re there too.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Happy, bright and cheery!

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

First things first, this building in the background is actually one of my favourite ever in Second Life – it’s a perfect replica of one of the buildings at Marie Antoinette’s village at Versailles.  Isn’t it the best?  In case you’re into it – you can find it at Never Totally Dead.  Anyway, I’ve decided to head over to the “hameau” (which basically means tiny village) and deliver a few treats to the inhabitants… I’m pretty sure there’s mostly geese at this point, which just means more cupcakes for me!

This is Halloween

Paper.Sparrow has a fun little Halloween Hunt going on until October 31st.  Just search the store for little black bats (spoiler alert:  they’re pretty hard to see!) and buy each prize for just 25L.  I grabbed the Astra Pants and Sandra top which look super cute together for my jaunt out into the wild.  Aren’t they nice?

Fame

Fame

Fame what you like is in the limo
Fame what you get is no tomorrow
Fame what you need you have to borrow

-Fame by David Bowie

Sometimes a girl just needs to feel a bit high fashion.

When I saw this dress by AtaMe at the Halloween Shop & Hop, I just knew I had to get it and wear it in a photo.  The lines have such *movement* that it was begging to be photographed!  Oh did I mention that it is one of the absolutely free gifts that you can get at Shop and Hop?  No group required!  I seriously fell in love with this entire look!  It comes with a HUD allowing you to change metals and colors on the dress.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

For some reason too this dress made the song “Fame” pop into my head.  Originally by David Bowie, but I love the more upbeat version done by Duran Duran.  My Mom used to *love* David Bowie (yeah she was cool!), so she might argue with me on that point.  Gosh I miss her. (by the way, not to be confused with the Irene Cara song Fame that I sang in a show when I was a teenager, that’s a whole ‘nother song!)

But I digress.  This photo makes me wish I had a fancy ultra modern house and some fancy couches I could hang this photo up on the wall over.  I do have a cute sl house, but it has very little wall space and while it is rather modern-ish, it is also very cabin-ish, so not the right look for my photo.  If I hadn’t just got this house recently I might go hunting for one to match the picture because well, as Aline also knows, one can never have enough houses!  Nor reasons to get houses.  😉

I better stop thinking before I go looking at houses.  But it might be too late to stop that part!

Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame……
What’s your name?

Confusing the Masses

Confusing the Masses

Have you ever been in a mood where you want to wear something completely insane just to make a statement?  You know, the kind of thing that people don’t understand when you walk into a room, and you’re completely ok with that?  I get that way sometimes – an errant flower crown, a pair of sparkly shoes and a little pin with the word “skint” (shoutout to my UK peeps!) on it… I like to confuse when I’m feeling completely confused myself.  Anyone else do that?  Maybe it’s just me!

The Confusing Part

There’s not actually anything confusing about how to get your mitts on this cute jumpsuit from Apple Blossom.  I styled it a bit all over the place so that I could turn some heads, and I’m having a blast with it.  To get your own (which I want to see how YOU style…) by joining the Apple Blossom group for free, then waiting by the lucky boards for your letter to come up (they’re just outside the front door of the main store).  There are some other great prizes too, so if you’re not in the mood for a purple jumpsuit, you may fancy something else!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Not so confusing after all!

I Want it All

I Want it All

Ah decisions, decisions, my dear FabFree.  Do I go to the park and people watch, or do I stroll down the high street for some more clothes I clearly don’t require?  When faced with such dilemmas, one must be practical, thusly I have decided to do a bit of both.  With a stop for a cold drink on the way, of course!

Itty and Bitty

The Itty Bitty T*tty Committee event is in full swing (pardon my asterisk), and if you head towards the middle of the build, you’ll find that there are a few group gifts for members of the Eventive Shops group (which is free to join), you can pick up this lovely dress by Lybra for free!  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and is perfect for all sorts of events. Love it!  The IBTC event is running until August 23rd.

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya

I’m Sorry What?

As the goodbye to gacha madness continues this month throughout SL, bit by bit more stores are putting their gachas up for sale.  I found that one of my absolute faves, Pure Poison are clearly going bonkers with 10L gachas!  I played a few machines (I refuse to admit to how many) and got lots of cute shoes, including the Lavinia heels in grey.  Don’t forget, if you join their free group, you can pick up a few free pulls at several of the machines as well!  Worth a try!

Who says you can’t have it all?

In Need of Therapy

In Need of Therapy

Shopping therapy is 100% a thing, right?  Sometimes when a mood of ickiness is upon me (perish the thought), all I need is a bit of aisle perusing.  I don’t really need to buy anything (though I usually do) to make the mood dissipate.  Though, I think I’ll have to start calling what we do here at FabFree a bit of freebie therapy…

Well Suited

This really cool top and pants combo from Tiffany Designs is giving me exactly what I need today to stave off any potential ick.  The top and pants can be worn separately (don’t you love the detailing around the hem at the bottom of the pants?) and they come with 6 different colour options in the HUD.  Best of all, this outfit is entirely and completely free, no group join required.  Yeap, you heard me right!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Fitted
  • Petite
  • Perky

Now do I really need another pair of shoes? Survey says yes!
