FabFree: Writers Block

Hey there Fabulouses!  Today I bring you a little bit of personal news regarding my plans for the new year, the future of Fabulously Free in SL… and of course information on how to pick up this two piece outfit for FREE, because I couldn’t come empty handed!

Let’s start with the outfit (mostly because I am procrastinating sharing my news!)

At Mangula, there is a whole wall full of FREE lucky board prizes, and may of them have been shown here on FabFree before, but you have to keep going back to see the new additions!  I popped in last night and found the Keyla Set that includes the ripped jeans and sweater and voila, my “L” came up!  You are not required to join the group to participate in the lucky boards but there are some nice group gifts with a free group join just beside the luckies too if you are interested in grabbing those.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Get on with it, Love

Ok! Here’s my news…

After much thought and almost 9 years with Fabulously Free in SL, I am announcing that I am retiring from running, and blogging for the organization.  I am stepping down as leader, still with much love for FabFree, for no other reason than after nearly a decade… I’m tired.  For the benefit of FabFree and my sanity (lol), the time has come to pass the torch to a new leader who is fresh, and inspired and eager!

Aline Passiflora has been a dedicated and enthusiastic team member for over two years now, entertaining you with her quick witted writing skills and keen eye for fashionable freebies!  She will be taking on the lead role here at FabFree, and I am very confident that she will do amazing things with it!

What’s next for Love?  I am not entirely sure, but I do know that I will continue posting the photos I so love to make on my flickr feed and will post credits to my personal SLovesadventures Blog.  I might clean my overflowing inventory or explore different areas of interest in Second Life.  Who knows what kind of trouble I might get into with all of this free time.  I can’t wait to find out!

In closing, I just want to thank you all for your readership and support over the years that I have been with this wonderful organization and community.  I am also very thankful for the friendships I have made over the years here with our very hard working writers (past and present), and readers and designers.

Now I’m just getting babbley…  I’m so excited to see what is in store for Fabulously Free in SL, and for myself with these changes.

ps.  Be patient with Aline while she gets things organized in a way that works for her!

*squishy hugs, best wishes, huge thanks and love for all*

Love Trill

A petal for your thoughts?

FabFree: A petal for your thoughts?

Hiya Fabulous Readers!  Today in my photo, I’m wearing a lovely dress by Kaithleen’s that I picked up for FREE, and I thought you might like it too!

Joyful in Rose!

The Shop & Hop Event is a breeze to teleport into now that it has been going on for a while and you can direct tp to some of your favourite locations without having to cam for miles and miles from the off sim areas.  Make sure you pop in at the Kaithleen’s display on the Tinseled sim to pick up the free gift box, because it’s the beautiful Joyful Dress in Rose as shown on  my avatar.  This dress comes in sheer and solid and includes a texture HUD that allows you to change the colour of the belt.

If you are shy like me (giggles), the Kaithleen’s Universal Thong that is a free group gift  (50L to join) at the mainstore is compatible and comes in matching colours.

Tiffany for 50L!

Glam Affair is participating in Fifty Linden Friday this week, and it’s still out today if you are interested in the beautiful Tiffany applier for Genus Project in all tones for one super low fee of 50L!  I am not sure how long this will be out as it was a special for yesterday, so hurry!  She is a lovely basic skin for the Classic head that will work beautifully dolled up or down with makeup layers.

Done Baking…

FabFree: Done Baking...

Hey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season :).  If there is one thing I won’t be touching for the rest of the month, it is a cookie sheet.  I baked WAY too much this year lol… and we all know where it’s going to sit… right on my hips.  Oh well.. It’s the holidays!  I know where to find my stretchy pants.

In my blog post today I am featuring a free group gift by Nerido and a free gift by Izzie’s at Shop & Hop.

She leaves a sparkle wherever she goes

Inworld group members of the Nerido group (199L to join), can head to the store and pick up the beautiful Dina Dress in Winter Ice, with a touch of added sparkle.  Panties are included and this is compatible with Maitreya and Legacy.

The socks are staying on

FabFree: The socks are staying on

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and if you aren’t celebrating Christmas, I still wish you a happy eve! Today in my blog post I am featuring news about a free instore group credit at Kaithleen’s (and I’ll tell you about what I picked up), as well as some adorable free holiday socks by Caboodle!

It’s on Kaithleen!

Kaithleen’s has put out a really generous holiday gift for her inworld group members!  VIPs (and it’s only 50L to join if you are not currently a member!) can head to the reception desk and click the credit sign that will load you up with a gift card worth 300L!  You can use it on purchases in the store, or at events!  I picked up the Franzy Bodysuit at Winter Spirit that was priced well under the 300L limit and I still have a fair balance left on the card for future purchases 🙂

I’m not kidding.. the socks stay on

For real…  If I had socks like this in real life, they would stay on, and I mean throughout everything because don’t they look so snuggly and warm and totally adorable too? How could I take them off?   You can pick these Holiday Edition Ballerina Socks as a free gift at the Caboodle Display at Shop & Hop until January 6th.

One spoiled gamer

FabFree: One spoiled gamer

Hey there Fabulouses!  Spoiled has a really sweet free gift at Shop & Hop and I have included it in my outfit today along with a 50L hairstyle by Exile.

Hair… I always start with the hair!

At Exile, you’ll find this Glinting Light Hairstyle in a 5pack, priced at 50L for Wanderlust Weekend.  The pack of colours is a good mix, so I’m sure you’ll find something you like in it.  It has a touch of sparkle, which is really fun for this time of year, but not so much that it can’t be worn anytime of the year either.

Festive Gamer

I know Second Life is filled with gamers (even though I don’t consider SL a game!),  and I thought that you might enjoy this cute free gift by Spoiled at Shop & Hop.  You can pick up the Festive Gamer Headset for free, and it comes with a ton of texture options to match it with your outfits.  My favourite part is the heart microphone, but the bow is ultra cute too.

ps.  Yes, still creating hiding spots for myself determined to survive the holiday season!

I’ll watch you on the slopes from the window, thanks :)

FabFree: I'll watch you on the slopes from the window, thanks :)

Hiya Fabulouses!  It’s true, I’ve been on a few ski trips in my life, but not one of them actually required skis!  I am more of a “Enjoy the lodge” kind of a girl, all snuggled up nice and warm.

Perhaps in something like the Dead Dollz Apres Ski Gacha Set at Epiphany!

The Apre Ski Gacha Set by Dead Dollz at Epiphany allows you to collect the RARE onesie, cardigan and socks, all in beautiful wintery colours for just 75L a play.  I adore the little pom poms on the socks, and I think the cardigan will be great with other outfits too!  There are no duds in this sweet set – good luck!
