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!

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

What is the one thing about the beach that you love?  Is it the sound of crashing waves?  The smell of the ocean?  Or is it some small detail, like the joy of gathering shells? Watching people?  The smell of suntan lotion?  There are so many things to love about this essential experience, but today I’ll settle for the joy of a walk on the sand with an ice cream cone in hand.

Feeling Lucky, Again

If you haven’t heard about Scandalize’s lucky boards, well I’m here to let you know that they’ve been recently updated with some new goodies.  I’m pretty sure this awesome bodysuit and shorts (which can be worn separately) is a bit older, but the top row of lucky boards are all new in celebration of their 6th anniversary.  I was a bit pressed for time, so didn’t wait until my letter A came up on the top row, but I still managed to run off with something pretty.  The Scandalize group is 20L to join, and you’ll be rewarded with frequent group gifts, and a super huge wall of lucky boards to keep you happy.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

What’s your magical beach moment?

Beach Bound

Beach Bound

I’m back at the beach, living a life of leisure.  There’s something absolutely relaxing about being in the middle of the water, not a care in sight.  I don’t have to preach about the joys of vitamin sea to you all, I’m sure you’re on the same page.  I wonder if they can bottle the smell of the sea up, then I can take a bit of it wherever I go… Wait, wasn’t there a Seinfeld episode about that?

Make a Splash

My new bikini comes from one of my faves – Pure Poison!  They’ve got a new group gift, and it’s a fun two piece bikini that is actually strippable, so you can peekaboo the other people on the beach to your heart’s content (if you’re in an adult sim, that is!).  This gift comes at you kind of gacha style – join the free group, then click on the poster.  It will deliver you a random version of this bikini for your very own.  In the mood for a specific one?  You can always play the gacha right next to it for just 10L per pull.

Sizes

  • Kupra Bimbo
  • Kupra Original
  • Kupra Low
  • Legacy Feminine
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Sparkle Time

There’s a new pretty subscriber gift at Gaury – the necklace and earrings set I’ve got on.  It’s delicate, beautiful, but not too small so that you can’t see it.  It comes in a full fatpack of gorgeous colours, so you can match pretty much any look.  Just click on the subscriber unit, then it should be delivered to you for free.  (If you’re already subscribed, you may have to unsubscribe and resubscribe to get this gift). Easy as pie!

I’ll be here a while – you guys entertain yourselves!

Hit the Road

Hit the Road

I jumped into my car and headed for the coast this morning.  A random road trip sometimes does a body good when the walls seem to be a bit closer together than they used to be.  I was supposed to be scrubbing some tiles, but instead the magic of the open road called, so off to the beach I went.  As per usual, who am I to deny the pleading of an inanimate object?

Road Trip!

There’s a new hunt going on at Petite Mort & Oubliette.  The Witchwood sim is always fun to explore, but even more so when you’ve got something to look for.  If you peek through the woods, you’ll find some “Route 66” signs kind of all over the place (even inside the stores) and inside there are all sorts of summery looks that are perfect for hitting the road.  I’m wearing the medium wash jeans that cost just 20L, as well as the feel the freedom tee which is another 20L as well.  I couldn’t help but take a shot (below) of the extremely pretty peach dress too, but can you blame me?  The Road Trip Hunt at Witchwood is running until July 4th, so grab those gifts before they’re gone! (And why not check out the 50% off sale while you’re there!?).

More Free Hair!

While I was at the Hair Fair the other day, I also came upon this free hairstyle from Ade.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s just a perfect easy breezy style for summer vacation goodness.  Just pay 0L, no need to join a group!  The Hair Fair is running until July 4th as well.

Ahh, freedom!

Let’s Get it Started

Let's Get it Started

We’re back to the cusp of the weekend, FabFree!  I’m ready to let loose and forget about the madness of the week.  That calls for tall heels and short hemlines, right?  Well, I know a place where you can get some pretty cute and entirely free goodies to kick it off like the weekend deserves.

Under the Sea

It’s time for a fun round of Under the Sea!  This event is super cute with how you arrive – you land on a dock, then dive into the water to land on the bottom of the sea surrounded by the event booths.  At each booth, you’ll find a fun, free gift.  Just join the Evil Bunny group (which is free to join) and you’ll gain access to all the cute gifts.  Here’s what I’m showing off today:

  • FREE dress by Sweet Intoxication sized for Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass
  • FREE Anklets by Grumble sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • FREE Nails by Stunner Originals sized for Alice, Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink

Under the Sea is running until June 15th, so don’t wait too long to go visit!

I have that song from the Little Mermaid stuck in my head now…

Fan(cy) Twins!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Heyyyy gang,

Aline and I got together this week to do a photo just for our fabfree fan club! (this is a pun.)  We hope you guys love it!  FabFree would be nothing without its faithful followers and for this we are soooo grateful!  We had a blast doing this pic for everyone!  So much fun to get to work with my Fab Free Sisters!

So we got together to show you a pose from Seetra Poses, they have a 50L gacha at the current Orsy Event (Runs from June 9 to June 23).  It’s all beautiful poses with Sakura fans (the fans come with it), so so cute for photos!  Seetra has some of my favorite poses, so if you are looking for some fun photo ops, check them out for sure! The key for the gacha is below:

Seetra Fans

The Gacha has:

41 items
8 Common poses x Fans in 5 colours (40 common combinations)
1 Rare Duo pose – includes texture change Fans (5 Colours)

We are also wearing matching dresses from Zenith, this dress is a free group gift (the group is free to join, and they have some gorgeous group gifts!).  Aline and I are so much alike (we’ve lost count of our “me too’s!”) we were concerned we might pick the same color to wear, luckily we didn’t.   This dress comes in 5 colors, also has an optional Faux Fur Stole with HUD and fits Maitreya.

More soon!

The Hills Are Alive…

The Hills Are Alive...
The hills are alive with the sound of….freeeeebiiiiiies!  I’m crying it from the mountain tops today, though I feel like I’m often doing that.  I think my catchphrase needs to just be “Oh you like this outfit? It was free!”.  I have a few friends who always giggle after I say it, because they are always expecting my line.  Anyway, back to crying from the tops of mountains!

Powerful

Mangula has a new subscriber gift!  As per usual, it’s super awesome and entirely free.  This one comes with the knotted shirt, pink bustier, skirt and even a pair of knickers that match.  They can all be worn separately, making this one pretty darn versatile.  To get it, just click on the subscribo unit above the front desk, and then head over to the gift section and you’ll find the vendor there.  There are plenty more awesome free gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

Wait, WHAT?

Oh guys…hold on tight because Pure Poison is having a bit of a clear out with lots and lots of their older creations marked down to just 1L on Marketplace.  I KNOW.  You’ll be rolling in completely gorgeous shoes forever if you click through to all the 1L awesomeness.  You’ll also find some priced at 5L and 10L too.  The tea is that you can grab these goodies for this weekend, and the 1L stuff will be around until April 30th when they will then be deleted FOREVER!  Gasp!  My suggestion to get to the shoe hoard is to head to the Pure Poison MP store, choose “lowest to highest price” and click off “demos” on the bottom left so they don’t show you 50,000 demos.  You’ll find them easily then!  I bought the Katarina sandals for just 1L, and I couldn’t be happier!

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Travel the World

Coming soon to Fab Free

The World Tour Hunt

Perhaps more than ever, we need a hunt where we can explore and tour the world. Goodness knows how much travel is banned at the moment in the real world. Let’s go back to days when we could just jump on a plane and fly to anywhere our hearts desire! The World Tour hunt ends on April 20th, and you can find all the information and different paths for the hunt on the Kastle & Co events website.

Travel in Style

This adorable air flight attendant uniform by Ari-Pari is the perfect outfit to get you started on the hunt. You might as well travel the world in style. This hunt prize costs only 3 Linden, and it even includes a colour change hud to change the tie to 10 different options.  Everything in this outfit comes as separates, so you can wear the skirt, vest, and shirt separately on their own or mix and match them with different outfits. Super cute!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Stylish Accessories

I didn’t end my freebie hunting there! I also needed to find some accessories to complement my look. I stumbled upon a few adorable accessories that match this look perfectly at Pure Poison.  My sunglasses, shoes, and earrings are all free group gifts at Pure Poison.

The awesome purse is another freebie by Petit Chat on the marketplace. You can read more about this sale in my post here.

Enjoy your travels, FabFree!
