FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

Looking for fun and feeling groovy

Looking for fun and feeling groovy

Heyya FabFolks! I think I might have gotten caught up in this Hippy, peace, Love and Rock and Roll vibe I started yesterday with that sweet 1960’s dress. But hey… why not? We all certainly need some good vibes right about now!

Peace, Love and Daisies

So, of course, I jumped on the Good Vibes Hunt! Bunny already showed you a couple of the cool things you can pick up at the Hunt, here and here.  Even if I didn’t do some of the Hunt myself, I had to go grab those super cute jeans…  Anyway, I found these two pieces from No Cabide. The “Good Vibes” dress ( which I decided to wear as a tunic) and jacket are both 25L for the Hunt but 50L for such cute high quality items is no strain on the pocket book IMO.  Each piece comes with a HUD for a choice of six different colors and textures. But I just had to pick the 60s Van. My real life Hubby is crazy about antique VWs and was driving that same type of VW Van when we met way back when.

The Good Vibes Hunt runs until August 14th so hurry to the Hunt SIM and get your vibe on!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Who I am Today

Who I Am Today

The power of transformation is one that cannot be overstated.  One of the main things I love about Second Life, (and fashion in general…) is that one day you can be a rock & roll queen, and the next you can be a soft flower.  Sometimes these transformations take place in the blink of an eye, and you can be several people all in the course of one day!  SL does allow us to have multiple personalities, doesn’t it?

Floating

My lovely bodysuit and socks come courtesy of Maai.  They have their latest group gift out for members of their free to join group, and it had me feeling my rose petal fantasy!  Nothing could be easier than grabbing this gift, just join the free group and click on the vendor in the entrance hall!  Now twirl!

Late Night Citrus

Late Night Citrus

When you need a late-night pick me up, there’s nothing like a conveniently placed, if not slightly creepy, vending machine area!  I swear, these are the places I only visit in SL!  Refreshing citrus beverage, here I come!

Deals Galore!

The people who organize 35L sales are back with an event called the Hot Summer Sales Event!  Not only will you find loads of awesome deals, but also each display also has a gift for members of the free to join group.  There are some really fun outfits to put together at this event, so do make sure you visit.  I grabbed this dress by NunaLuna, which is pretty fun and also slightly scandalous in the back, as well as this hot pink lipstick by J!NX that comes with appliers for Genus, an Omega Applier as well as BOM layers.  Nice!

Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy/Legacy Perky

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

Hunt Hint: Careful, he bites!

    • Male Swimsuit Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh (s-L)
    • Female Swimsuit Sizes Included: Voluptuous, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh

SamPoses

This sweet beachy pose complete with seashell prop is a free group gift at La Vie en Pose by SamPoses. The gift includes the pose in a stand which gives you the ability to adjust the pose the same way you would in furniture. The pose is called Sea Sound and you can get your copy by heading over to the La Vie en Pose event and stopping by the SamPoses booth. You’ll need to join the La Vie en Pose event group as well. It is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag.

Play the Game

Play the Game
My fave game to play at the beach is “sit there and look pretty”.  I’m pretty good at that game in SL, not to toot my own horn or anything.  All the sports and splashing are just not on the menu for me (at least not in today’s mood), because I’m here to soak up the rays and let others soak up my beauty!

Goodness Gracious

There’s another new group gift for you over at Miss Chelsea!  They’ve been spoiling us mere avatars recently with all the goodies, and this latest one is pretty darn awesome.  The Rena bikini is super beautiful with 16 different colour and texture options in the HUD.  To get it, and all the other awesome gifts from Miss Chelsea, just join the group for 100L and take a peek at all the awesome gifts on the counter.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

What do you like to do at the beach for fun?

Last Minute Weekend Get-a-way

Coming soon to Fab Free

I decided to go on a weekend trip to do some special shopping! Now that I’m back at my hotel, I am trying on all the lovely things I found. SL17B is ending this weekend (July 12th), so it’s your last chance to grab all of the amazing gifts at Second Life’s 17th Anniversary. Today I am showing off three free gifts from the event, and a free lucky letter prize from Selene Creations.

Last chance

Some of my favourite items I collected from SL17B includes the following three free gifts I’m showing off here:

  • A hair fatpack from Sintiklia, includes a style HUD and hair colour hud essentials pack. Pick it up at the Gleaming sim.
  • A free AO from Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language; this is a full-functioning AO and very cute. It includes runs, walks, stands, flying animations and more. Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language AOs are fully Bento and valuable- so this is a great freebie! You can pick it up at Jubilant.
  • This cute dress by Safira which comes in blush, lilac and blue, sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass and Legacy. As all of Safira’s clothes are, it is well-made and adorable. You can grab it at Snowflake.

Darlin’ Darla

In addition to the great gifts at SL17B, I snatched up some awesome gifts and lucky letter prizes over at Selene Creations. Their VIP group is currently free to join for a temporary period. Included with the group join are years’ worth of past free gifts and a huge wall of lucky letter board prizes. I did the boards and walked away with a shopping spreeeee! I am showing the Darla heels from that haul.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and have a fun weekend getaway!

Guilty Pleasures

Pride V2

 

One of my favorite guilty pleasures in second life is free VIP group joins. Oh how I love them, even if I am always panicking to figure out which groups to join and leave to make openings for the best groups. Today I’ll be showing you some amazing gifts and gift cards you can get from these groups you can join currently for free!

Get me some Sintiklia!

Sintiklia has graciously made their VIP group free to join for a limited time. This group normally has a 250L fee, and there is an insane amount of amazing hair and makeup gifts. This one is certainly a keeper! Right now I have the dreamy hair on and it certainly is dreamy…

Arcane Spellcaster did it again

Arcane Spellcaster is known for their generous gift card giveaways. Right now the group is free to join and there is a 250L gift card available until June 21. Stay in the group too, as they will be releasing a 500L gift card later this month from June 22-24th, but by the 22nd the group will have a join fee. With my free gift card I purchased the Telsa shorts, which only cost 175 L for the fatpack.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya & Isis)
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Altamura

[b]elle is beautiful

b[elle] is a great designer who always has lovely monthly gifts out- called his n’ hers- two gifts which are available each month of the year for members of the b[elle] group. The group is currently free to join. I love the top for ladies this month; it has the cutest spring flowers pattern on it.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
