Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

Today I Don't Feel Like Doing AnythingOh you know, just hanging around. Looking cute. Normal old Sunday. Not doing anything…except collecting freebie and sale items, of course!

For Free

I don’t spend enough time collecting FabFree group gifts. I really should be better about that. The FabFree group is always free and the gifts are free, what’s not to love? You can see the complete FabFree group gift list here. For right now, I’m wearing the new free gift that Paper.Sparrow put out. It’s this sexily cute corset top in red. All you’ve gotta do is wear your FabFree tag and go to Paper.Sparrow to pick one up for yourself.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

On Sale

You know I love the weekend sales. I’ve managed to be rather restrained lately, but couldn’t resist this gorgeous hair from Stealthic. It’s only 60L per color pack for Happy Weekend and includes a style HUD. Perfection.

How Was I To Know?

How Was I To Know?It’s Saturday! The day when Allison does an advent post! Have you been keeping up with any advent calendars? There are soooo many of them, and now even more since the shorter 12 day calendars have started. Don’t forget the handy dandy list right here to keep you organized! Here are a couple of my faves.

So Well Made

Yeah, Wellmade is a no brainer if you like advent calendars. You need to join the group to get the gifts but the group is free to join. Then just stop by every day for a new free pretty thing to wear. Today (day 17) you can get the super cute sweater that I’m wearing for free. Past gifts are available too, like the skirt that I’m wearing is part of the outfit that was given away on day 10. If you missed it you can still get it for 50L. Today’s free sweater comes in sizes for Legacy and Maitreya.

Wow!

I made it to the WoW Skins advent calendar for the first time today. And guess what? No don’t guess, I’ll just tell you. At WoW all of the past advent gifts are still available for free, for the entire advent season. When you switch to your group tag (the group is 350L to join if you’re not already a member) and click on the advent calendar in the store lobby, it’ll give you the option to pick what day you want. You can click on every day up through today and each will be delivered. How bout that? No worries about missing a day! Now for the less good part – I don’t know which day the skin that I’m wearing here is from. I knooooow, bad blogger. But they’re all free so you’ll want them all anyway, and then once they’re in your inventory the folders are clearly labeled with the name of the product inside. Wow, indeed!

Rama Llama

And because the weekend still means sales, I picked up this great hair over at Rama.Salon. It’s 75L per color pack for The Saturday Sale.

My Aim Is True

My Aim Is TrueYou guys, it’s happening! The Black Friday sales are starting! Let’s all try to take deep breaths and pace ourselves. With a bit of caution we can make it through this shopping season with a few remaining L…maybe.

Unrelatedly, I’m not quite sure what’s happening in this picture. Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s me or Miss Tobias who is in control here. I was about to snap a perfectly normal picture and right as I did she made that face. I couldn’t not use it. It’s too strange and wonderful. But enough about facial expressions and poor photography skills, there are Black Friday sales and freebies to discuss!

So Close

Firstly, we need to talk about Eternus. There is a new free group gift in the store and it’s this lovely Alison skirt that is so close to being something that I can pretend is named after me. But alas, it’s an L short. But wait, there’s more – the Eternus group is currently free to join! I can’t remember how much it usually is, but it’s free right now and that’s what matters. Once you join, there is a whole wall of free group gifts to collect.  The cute tied choker that I’m wearing is a example of one of the older but still awesome free group gifts. While you’re there, the entire mainstore is 50% off except for new releases. The sale and temporary free group join both started today and will last until November 30th.

Both gifts that I’m wearing here come with a HUD of color options and the skirt has sizes for:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Against the Rules

Okay, technically this is against the FabFree rule of blogging items that are 75L or less, but the entire Magika store is currently 50% off! Magika hardly ever has sales so this is a really big deal. Originally the sale was only supposed to last through the 20th but I read that it’s now been extended through the end of November. You don’t wanna miss this!

Just don’t tell Aline that I broke the rules. *wink*

Sweet Like Honey

Sweet Like HoneyHappy Friday! I hope you’re having a good start to your weekend. I am because I have new hair and skin to show you!

Fri-Yay

Have I mentioned that Fifty Linden Friday is probably my favorite of the weekend sales events? Well, it is. You just can’t beat all of the great designers who participate and 50L is a steal. Today I snagged up this great hair from Doe. The back is a sweet bun and the front is fun and messy. It’s perfect for dressed up casual or dressed down formal. I honestly haven’t done it justice. It’s way prettier in world and definitely worth a demo, especially at just 50L for FLF today.

Like Honey

I love the sweet kawaii faces on the skins over at Heaux, they’re just so naturally pretty. There’s a new group gift out but I’m showing one of the older ones. The gift area has a handful of group gifts available in a variety of shades and options, and the group is 200L to join.

You Make Me Feel

You Make Me FeelUm yeah, this post really got away from me, in the best of ways. I’ve really crammed in the group gifts. Stay with me here, there’s a lot to unpack (pun intended).

How It Started

There’s a new group gift out over at Pink Cream Pie. It’s these super cute plaid pants. The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there is a new group gift each month, 100L of store credit for group members each month, and a bunch of lucky boards.

Sizes:

  • GenX Classic
  • GenX Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Reborn

And Then

I needed a top to wear with my pants, didn’t I? The answer is yes. So I popped over to Reed to pick up the current group gift, a free 500L store credit. The Reed Emporium group is free to join and the credit expires on November 11th. Mine did not last long. It was a hard decision but I’m wearing the Fanny top here which comes with pants too, and it was totally free with my store credit.

I Thought I Was Done

But Tutti Belli has a store credit out right now, too! The Tutti Belli group is free to join and you can pick up the free 800L store credit. You’ll have to use this one up a little faster, it expires on November 7th, but again mine was gone in a flash. One of the things I bought was a cute set of lip gloss that I’m wearing here.

Until Finally

While I was at Tutti Belli the scar on my face caught my eye (pun, unintended?). It was NOT something that could be purchased with the store credit, but it WAS only 29L. It didn’t appear to be any kind of limited time sale or anything. And I’m me so obviously exactly what my inventory needed was another scar. But I mean c’mon, only 29L!

Never Be The Same Now

Never Be The Same NowMy post yesterday was for the freebies, but today is for the sales! I’ve got two great pieces to show you, and then it’s time for me to inspect the insides of my eyelids. So without further ado…

On My Head

Mina is part of Fifty Linden Friday this weekend. This cute braided style will only set you back 50L and it’s super cute, see?

On My Body

In Your Eyes

In Your EyesThis incredibly close up picture has a lot to share. Really!

The Light, The Heat

Shall I wax poetic about eyes? Eyes are soooo important to your look, y’all. Good quality eyes are the perfect finishing touch and such a vital detail. If you’re not sure where to find some good, affordable, quality eyes then Yoshi is an excellent place to start. The group is 10L to join and these gorgeous, silvery, reflective eyes are the most recent free group gift. There are also lots of really fantastic “regular” (ha what a funny word to use in SL) and fantasy eyes set out as free group gifts too. There’s certainly something that will suit your look. AND it couldn’t be simpler, because they include appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega plus some mesh and BOM versions. You won’t regret it!

A Song

Speaking of no regrets, I’ve been trying to scale down my skin purchases lately. I mean, they’re all on sale but buying up every gorgeous skin I see adds up. That means maybe one or two purchases per week from my favorite skin designers, if any at all. Hey, it’s a start! Glam Affair put out this irresistible face for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday and it’s still there today. Yup, 50L will get you Song in the basic line in the whole range of skin tones, with and without eyebrows, PLUS blush a bunch of makeup add-ons! No regrets!

Fine Lines

Last but not least, I’m showing off some makeup from Vizatti Beau. I’m not good at makeup in either life but I think this finishes things off nicely. the group at Vizatti Beau is free to join and I’m wearing one of the eyeliners from the Overheated Collection which is a free group gift. There are some other colorful and dramatic sets to chose from while you’re there, also available as free group gifts.

Washed In Black

Washed In BlackOh for the love of Belle Epoque, how stunning is this dress? Belle Epoque has their weekend sales out and this one is a real show stopper. It’s available in a range of silky colors for Happy Weekend at 60L each (including sizes for Maitreya and Legacy), but I thought the black was sufficiently spooky for the season and perfectly formal for the rest of the year too.

But Wait, There’s More

Belle Epoque has also been spoiling us with group gifts lately. There are a handful that I hadn’t picked up yet. Among them were the drippy necklace in a smattering of colors that I’m wearing in red and also the headband adorned with a bow. Just the right accessories for your Halloween needs. You can get them from the wall to your right when you walk into the store with the other group gifts, and the Belle Epoque group is an incredibly worthwhile 50L to join.

Rhythm Is Gonna Get You

Rhythm Is Gonna Get YouSometimes you put on a few items and you think you know how a look is going to come together. You think you’re in control. But friends, I’m here to tell you that we’re all just slaves to the rhythm. Don’t fight it. Let the rhythm take control. Tonight! Too much Gloria Estefan, or just enough? You be the judge.

Swanky

Swank has already gotten a decent amount of coverage here on FabFree, but you should know that it’s ending soon. This event is very large. Far be it for me to say that an event is excessively large, but wow is there a lot going on there. I’m not complaining, my visit has absolutely bloated my inventory with pretty free gifts. But yeah, it’s a lot. You better head over to Swank now so you’ve got time to see everything before it closes on September 30th. You’ll need to join the free group and click on the glowy gift at each booth to gather free gifts galore. The things I’m wearing from Swank are:

  • My free dress by [AF] comes with a HUD so you can pick the color. There are sizes for Belleza (Freya, Isis, and Curvy), Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice, Slink, and Slink Hourglass. It’s always great to find a sexy little mini that stands apart from the rest!
  • And then of course there’s the maracas that I’m holding, which completely changed the direction of my night, free from LeMont at Swank. So fun. There’s one for each hand and a HUD featuring seven difference dances that you can do while you shake your maracas.

amias

amias has put out a new free group gift and I couldn’t get over there fast enough. This time it’s these leg binds. You can wear the right and left separately and they come for Legacy or Maitreya, and with a HUD of color options. The amias group is free to join and the gift is free, and don’t miss out on the other free group gifts while you’re there.

 

P.S. My hair is once again from the Doe street sale. Just about all the hair that I’ve worn *checks notes* since the sale started has been from Doe. Can’t stop, won’t stop. I’ll once again direct you to Adalynn’s post here and strongly urge you not to miss this sale, it’s a good one.

The Top Of Your List

The Top Of Your ListHappy Friday Jr, FabFree! The weekend is just around the corner and I, for one, am ready for it. Also, happy first day of Fall to my fellow residents of the Northern Hemisphere…or first day of spring if you’re over there south of the equator (I’m jealous of you 😉). But enough with the pleasantries, I stumbled upon two fantastic freebies last night. I love it when a blog post makes itself.

What’s She’s Wearing

First I was over at Off-Line, trying to spend a store credit, and I clicked on this set thinking about buying it…and much to my avail, I realized that it’s actually a free group gift! The Vidhor set is placed by the front doors, away from the other group gifts, and looks just like any of the other sets out for purchase. Just active your Off-Line group or join the group for free, and it’s yours for free. The set includes the top, skirt, and boots in a wide range of colors. I was struck by how fabulous the texturing is. From the shine on the boots and top to the frayed edges of the skirt, it’s really very well made. Sizes included are:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Where She’s Sitting

My other free gift is from Onsu, and it’s the skybox that I am sitting in. I am absolutely not doing this skybox justice, there is so much more to see. Have a look for yourself by tping to Onsu, clicking to join the subscribo, and the free skybox is delivered. It’s gorgeously textured and with various poses and interactions scattered about, and some different versions included too.

P.S. My hair is one from the Doe hair sale that Adalynn covered here. The sale is still going on and there are so many great styles available!
