Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


I Can Just Taste It

I Can Just Taste It

It’s almost the weekend, FabFree.  I can feel it.  I can almost taste the freedom from here.  Almost.  What exactly does weekend taste like?  Well, to me it tastes like effervescent Italian orange soda, a pile of mixed chocolates and a smattering of roast potatoes.  Sounds random, right?  Well, have you met me?

Off to Queenz

There’s a new group gift at Queenz, and that always puts me in a chipper mood.  It’s been a little while since the last one, so I forgot how fun it can be to style their body-conscious looks.  Always plenty of fun colours to play around with in the HUD too!  To grab this lovely top and pants combo (which can be worn separately), just join the free group and click on the vendor.  There’s a rather extensive wall of gifts to pick up while you’re there.

Sizes

  • GenX Curvy

What does weekend taste like to you?

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

Have you ever been to a party and just felt overwhelmed by all the people?  It happens to me quite a bit, so here I am hiding in the bamboo and having a little breather.  What?  It’s a legitimate strategy!

Feeling like Queenz

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  This top and skirt is perfect for a party and I love the gathered fabric.  It just gives the dress something a little special.  It comes with an HUD with plenty of different colours and textures to choose from, so you’re sure to find something.  The top and bottom can also be worn separately, so lots of options here.  The Queenz group is free to join, and you’ll find lots of awesome group gifts on the wall!

  • BBW
  • Erika

See you in the bushes!

A Hint of Green

A Hint of Green

We’ve been all pink, red and hearts all over for a while now, but I’m in the mood to trade for a bit of cool, green and shady.  It come be that St. Patrick’s Day is on the way, or it could be that I’m ready for a bit of greenery to poke through all this frozen wasteland I inhabit!

Pinch Me

This awesome jumpsuit with the striking cutouts is the latest group gift from Queenz!  I love the way it hugs my curves, while also creating some new and unexpected ones.  It comes in several different colours, just in case green isn’t your thing.  You can also remove the metallic belt if you want.  The Queenz group is free to join, and there’s a massive wall of free gifts there!

Bubbly

Bubbly

I think it’s possible to become the personification of a glass of bubbly.  All it takes is a really pretty, golden and sparkly dress, and the ability to laugh good-naturedly in the face of anything thrown your way.  Read on for your very own tall, cool glass of gorgeous…

Glimmer

This dress is totally giving me life!  You can’t really tell from the photo, but it *actually* sparkles, so when you stand around you’ll be just like a disco ball without even trying!  There’s also a non-animated version if you prefer to be a little less flashy.  You can get it for free over at Queenz under the Christmas tree.  Just join their free group, and click on the golden gifts under the tree.  There are several other really pretty party outfits to show off in.  You won’t regret the visit!

Snow Angel

Snow Angel

Yep, I’m back in the snow!  I know I know, it’s still early and I’m not trying to encourage the flakes to fall from the sky, but you must admit that this look was just crying out for a snow angel kind of look.  Plenty of sparkle, a hint of frost, and a halo to top it all off.

So Much Sparkle

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  This gorgeous floor length gown, with asymmetrical sleeves, cutouts and a high slit.  It’s perfectly gorgeous and entirely free!  To get yours (which comes in 14 gorgeous colours), just join the free Queenz group and click on the vendor on the group gift wall.  There are lots of other pretty gifts to pick up while you’re there.  How can you resist?

Top it Off

This ice thorn halo inspired me to put together this snow angel look today.  It’s one of the prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt and you can pick it up at Afterparty for just 5L and a bit of hunting.  There are 5 different colours to choose from – just look for the glowing rainbows around the shop!

Time to fly off and make some magic!

The Gumption

The Gumption

I wish there was a time in RL in which I could get away with wearing a skintight jumpsuit.  It’s such a like…statement, that I’m sure would never be something that held up in my day to day doings.  Imagine going to the gas station in it… or perhaps picking  up some groceries, or you know – going to the library.   I don’t know that I have the gumption to pull it off, but happily for me, my inworld counterpart has all the gumption I need.  She is happy to flaunt her swerves and curves in all sorts of goodies!

Let Them Eat Cake

Alright, now that I’ve mused about the non-feasibility of madcap inworld clothing in real life, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.  Freebies!  It’s the Cakeday event’s anniversary, and that means lots of freebies.  Just join the free group, and click on the gift boxes at each stall for an inordinate amount of free gifts.  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE jumpsuit by Queenz sized for Ebody Curvy, Freya, Kupra Bimbo, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE hair by Made in Tokyo (Flexi hair pony – worn with my hairbase)
  • FREE earrings by Rossi in both silver and gold options
  • FREE pose by Stun Poses

There’s so so so much more at the event, I can’t impress upon you how long you’ll be unpacking!  Cakeday just opened on the 13th, so you still have a while to check it out.

Time to own your look, FabFree!

Bloggers at the Beach

Bloggers at the Beach

It was high time to get the whole gang together and head over to the beach.  We clambered into an old beat up VW camper van for aesthetic purposes, all the pups in tow.  Of course, we packed a picnic and sang really fabulous songs from the 50’s all the way to the late 2000’s as loud as we could, with our hair blowing in the wind of our speed, all while laughing at terrible knock knock jokes and reminiscing about the magic of summers gone by.  I love it when we all get together!

Swimwear Galore

As you can see, we managed to get all our full time bloggers together for a bit of sun and sand, and a whole lot of bikinis.  There are so many nice pieces of swimwear to be had right now that we thought it would be fun to give you a smattering of what’s available on the grid so you can have a nice cross-section of goodies to choose from.  Here’s what we’re wearing:

You do know that a massive and super splashy water fight came right after this, right?

Out of the Ordinary

Out of the Ordinary

You never know when you’ll have a fancy affair to attend in SL.  They seem to pop up every night of the week, and you’ve got to be ready for ’em.  The thing is, you don’t really want to look like everyone else at said events, so it’s nice to keep an eye peeled for something out of the ordinary when you really want to stand out.  I’ve found just the thing!

Back to Queenz

As per usual, Queenz is spoiling members of their free-to-join group.  You’ve got a massive wall of gifts to grab when you get there, and this fun dress is just the latest.  I am particularly taken with the triangle cutouts down the side, since it gives the dress a sexy yet different kind of vibe.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and is just super cool.

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

How Sweet!

Romazin are being amazin’ (see what I did there?) with their latest massive gift to members of their group.  When you join, you gain access to a box full of 11 awesome new gifts.  It’s hard to choose which one I like best, since they’re all really beautiful.  I’ve got on the lovely Cody necklace, which drapes prettily over your décolletage.  The Romazin group is free to join, so do head over to grab these lovely gifts.
