There’s No Good Way to Say Goodbye

Coming Soon

To a Great and Supporting Creator

As I write this post I can feel myself tearing up. .EscalateD., which is one of my favourite stores of all time, is closing its doors on July 31st, 2022. .EscalateD. was the first creator to support me as a blogger and I have had the privilege of showing their unique and beautiful hairstyles over the years. .EscalateD. has to have been one of the most generous hair creators to contribute to the freebie community over the years and the store will be missed dearly by her devoted fans. I hope that on whatever journey Dolphin Ayres embarks on after this that she finds great fulfillment and happiness in her RL and SL. ❤

Solaris

I am wearing Solaris today, which is my favourite hairstyle of all time from .EscalateD. It’s so beautiful. I love the detailing in the braids and the stones. This is a classic work from this wonderful creator. The hairstyle includes a style hud and a Universal Colour Hud in naturals and unnaturals colours, which work on all of the hairstyles sold in the store.

Coming Soon

You may be lucky enough to win this hairstyle on the MM Board this month, as this will be your last chance to play these fun boards. Every day, there is a new hairstyle on the Midnight Mania boards which group members can play to win. The .EscalateD. VIP group only costs 25L to join right now. The boards are locking regularly lately. You can also win a tonne of hairstyles on their lucky boards, as well as Universal Colour huds. Being a VIP also gives you access to all of their lovely group gifts. There are more hairstyles available for free for those not in the group as well on lucky boards and mini mania boards that are free for all to play, as well as a few freebies and 5L offers on the wall. Now is your last chance to grab the free offers and group gifts at the store!

Additionally, you may have store credit racked up on your .EscalateD. account. Check your balance using any of the check credit terminals in the store. You only have until the end of July to use up that credit when the store closes. After that, credits will be gone forever. All items in the store are set to a 25% off discount for the closing sale. Fear not, though, .EscalateD. is not gone for good! After the store closes, all of the products will be available for purchase on their Marketplace store.

A final gift

As a parting present, my pretty little necklace is a free gift from Supernatural @ SL19B. It complimented my look well today and I always enjoy a little gift from this talented creator.

That’s all for now, FabFree!

Glam Workout…Without the Working Out

Coming Soon

Hey Fabbies! I have a fun look today of workout clothes and sweat pants meets glam… and I threw in some limes too. Ha!

Magnetic Force

First off, I have two great gifts from Magnetic to show off today, a designer I have not yet had to pleasure to blog until today. They make some amazing products and I had to show you a few of their creations.

  • The pretty eyeshadow and eyeliner is a free gift from Magnetic @ SL19B. These gorgeous eye shadows come in a pack of several colours with liners included in each option. They are BOM layers designed for Lelutka EvoX heads only. This is a new gift at their booth, as they replaced the gift card that was previously there with this eyeshadow set! So go grab the new gift in its place if you haven’t had the chance to get it yet! You have until July 10th to grab it.
  • Magnetic also has these delightful green lime earrings as a free group gift for members of the *Inside Your Inventory* group. You will find these at the Magnetic mainstore and you will need to join the freebie group *Inside Your Inventory* to pick up the gift. The earrings come in silver and gold metal options.

Shoediction

You may have caught these super sexy shoes on a FabFinds post recently, but I just had to show them off to give that extra push because these are an incredible offer! They are a free gift at N-Core if you join the Mesh Body Friends group. The shoes come in white and black. I was very excited to add these to my shoe collection because N-Core makes excellent footwear!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Erika

A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

        • Eyes –Avi Glam – Lucent Eyes in Pine
        • Hair – Exile – Knox
        • Glasses – Since 1975 – Slimglass Glasses

        Top + Pants + Hat – Vagrant – Edward Sweater + Combat Patch Pants + Jackie Hat – FREE/0L – Free 500L Store credit available @ SL19B Shop & Hop

Made for Summer

Made for Summer
Oh hi there, you can just call me Blonde Ariel…er Blariel? Huh no that’s weird, let’s just stick to Allison.

Phew now that we’ve got that out of the way, I am absolutely in love with my new shellkini. Okay, I know it’s a bit risque for a Disney movie but it’s still PG-13 and I can’t get over how gorgeous it is. It is the free gift from DeviousMind over at the good ol’ SL19B Shop & Hop. You’ll find DeviousMind on the Dahlia sim and the shellkini as a free gift, no group join required. The gift consists of everything that I’m wearing (top, bottom, and pasties) in gold or the pearl, and sized for Maitreya only (plus some unrigged pasties).

You’ve got ’till July 10th to snatch up all the Shop & Hop goodness.

Monday Adventures

Monday Adventures

Hello and happy Monday, FabFam! Wow, what a weekend. I finally made it all the way through the enormous SL19B Shop and Hop. Twenty SIMs is nothing to sneeze at even if it was so much fun. And I don’t even want to talk about all the unboxing!  So let’s get started with one of my top favorite gift from the whole event.

This is the “Emilia” outfit from Zenith. (@ The Shop & Hop Location) This has always been one of my go-to designers and this lovely set is no disappointment. The top, sleeves and skirt are all separate pieces for more mix and matching. The build is top notch and you get a HUD with four different colors to choose from. So you’re looking sharp no matter what you pick!

Create a Scene

Cabinet of Curiosities

Juli recently blogged about all the gifts [QE Designs] has for us all for free at SL19B. Make sure you read her post here to see all the cute apparel items they have out at the event. Today I’m showing you the free home and decor [QE Designs] also has available for free in their massive box of gifts at SL19B. They have a nice gift for everyone there, no matter what your home and decor tastes are.

[QE Home]

Did you know that [QE Designs] has a brand under their company called [QE Home] just for home and decor products? It’s true and it’s pretty awesome. So just head over to [QE Designs] & [QE Home] @ SL19B to grab a whole truckload of free home and decor gifts. I am showing all the home and decor gifts from their gift package today.

A Cabinet of Curiosities

The first scene I created with these great freebies is a Cabinet of Curiosities, which can be seen at the top of my post. For those who haven’t heard of them before, a “Cabinet of Curiosities” or “Curio Cabinet” was a collection of strange and bizarre objects, artifacts, and furnishings that wealthy people used to collect in Europe in the 19th century. Pretty cool! This is not a true curio cabinet, but in the spirit of SL19B’s steampunk theme, I wanted to at least reference my favourite historical time period and throw in some steampunk decor and skulls into the mix. If you didn’t know already, I am obsessed with that time period and the steampunk subculture is connected to that. The free exclusive steampunk gifts [QE Home] has out at their SL19B booth are:

  • A free steampunk painting with a thick wooden frame. You can change the frame and the canvas to six different options using the artwork’s menu when you click it.
  • The steampunk rug set is also free, and you can change the textures of the rugs to several different options using the rug’s menu when you click it.

Coastal Decor

The other scene I created from these great home and decor gifts is this little coastal decor arrangement.

Coastal Decor

  • There is a free banana plant in the gift pack. You can change the colours of the pot and the plant leaves using the objects’ menu when you click it.
  • The lanterns are both free and come in a set. You can change the colour of each lantern to aqua or coral by using the objects’ menu when you click it.
  • The two little seashell paintings that hand by strings are also free.

Have fun decorating, FabFree!

Summery Shimmer

Summery Shimmer

Summer always makes me want to wear bright colours.  Orange isn’t necessarily one of my go-tos, but there’s something about a warm, iridescent orange is really lovely and summery.  Pair it with a cold drink, and you’ve got a great Saturday night!

Back at It

I’m still shopping and hopping all over the place!  SL19B rages on with more free gifts than you can shake a stick at.  And by that, I mean you’ll be rolling in freebies for the next who knows how long – no need to join a group, just click on the boxes!  Here are the goodies I’m showing off today:

  • FREE dress by [ADD] sized for Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya and Maitreya Petite
  • FREE drink by Bubble in both right and left hand holds

SL19B is running until July 10th, so you still have time to mosey around collecting all the goodies.

Cheers to Saturday Night!
