Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

Baby Please Come Home

Baby Please Come Home
They’re singing Deck The Halls
But it’s not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Staying Home for the Holidays

I know many of us are missing our nearest and dearest these days, but let’s not get too down about it all.  I often think about how lucky we are to have the technology to be able to see our family from afar, and I choose to focus on that.  The other thing that keeps me happy is the fact that so many designers are super generous, handing out amazing gifts.  Trompe L’Oeil have been consistently amazingly generous, and they’ve done it again, this time with the completely free Cecilia cottage.  It’s sooooo nice!  I’m totally going to pull up everything I have on my land to start over with this cute cottage.  At 53LI, it’s pretty light on the prims for the size and detail as well.  Head on over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore and click on the vendor just by the front doors, and it will be yours for FREE!  There’s also a sweet bench for free too.

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

I’ve been harping on incessantly about how Christmas isn’t over yet, and I stand by my rantings.  Today is the 6th day of Christmas and Lybra brought to me…. an awesome gift calendar!  for each of the 12 days of Christmas, they’re giving their group members (the group is free to join) a new gift.  I am showing off day 1’s shoes (super awesome platforms sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) and day 3, which is a classic grey denim shift dress.  Lybra are so generous with their goodies – you’ll find lots of group gifts on the wall too, as well as some lucky chairs (and a FabFree gift too!).
UPDATE:  Lybra is back – Enjoy!

Decoy Duck

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 1)

Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg

A whirlwind of hunts, events, and new gifts keep us all quite busy here at Fabfree and I want to give a shot out to the ladies who have been able to handle this with ease, *you all make it look so easy* and grace. I’ve always looked up to how much you all get done during the week as well as your real-life. You ladies have it down to a definite science, however, I’m as sporadic as my posts and just as haphazard.

Decoy‘s Mainstore Hunt – Jack Spice has returned for the season and left 13 pumpkins scattered throughout the waterfall caves behind Decoy for L$25 each! Search high and low for these treasures, while some hide in plain sight, others will need a more careful eye. All items compatible with Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, and Meshbody Legacy. Jack Spice Hunt ends November 1st so you have time to get there and find the goodies!

There is also a free subscriber gift of an exclusive color of the Raquel top, with 3 additional colors exclusively available to VIPs! So make sure you slap that subscriber box at Decoy and go to the history to snag the goodies! Demos are available of hunt items ♥

All of the Jack Spice Hunt Items Fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Decoy Main Store Hunt

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 2)

Looking for a great pose for you and your pet pooch? This Pet Treat Bento Pose is super adorable and it comes with two options, the one pictured above and another option where the left arm is down. Along with the duo pose package comes a mesh bone to toss your pup. This is way too good to be just L$1, but it could only be from the one and only amazing Reve Obscura store! So head over to their marketplace and snag this one because there is no telling if it will remain at this price.

Women seem wicked

Fabfree Post: Women seem wicked

Faces come out of the rain

When you’re alone, can you hear the wind howling through the dead branches on that old tree swaying in the backyard? Can you hear the hiss of the little black cats circling your door looking for an unlucky place to lay their heads for the night? Can you hear the cackles of the silhouettes that cross the full moon riding their broomsticks? Do you hear something tapping, gently rapping on your chamber door, or is it silenced by the faces that come out of the rain evermore?

 

Apple Blossom has a free gift out at the Halloween Shop & Hop event and its spooktastic! It comes with a hud so this 1 piece top and bottom because 3 different outfits! The Ciel Halloween Edition color options come in (pictured above) Spiderwebs/bats, Colorful Skulls, and Ghosts.

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!

I Heart Kittens

Fabfree Post: I heart Kittens

Furbabies are fun

I have recently adopted a cute little black kitten in real life. She is full of crazy fun energy all day and night!! She follows me around the house and sleeps on me whenever I sit down for a moment. Her little mew is a cute reminder of how we were all small once, about three days into her being in her new home with my rl family she started purring and coming out more. She’s grown to understand that even though it’s a new place with new people we are here to make sure her little kitten life is purrrfect.

As I am typing this out she’s trying to play with me by pawing at my fingers, tapping my arm and trying to eat the words on the screen ^^ which makes it hard to do anything recently because anytime I start to type I have to stop and laugh. It’s taken me 12 attempts to type this entire paragraph out and Miss Mazikeen wants to play, so I must get to the details sooner than later.

Candy Kitten has a new free gift out for Kitty Lovers! There’s no group needed for you to snag this cute dress either! Just tp to the shop, walk to the back where the group gift and lucky letter boards are, and it’s right there to the left! The free gift comes with a hud and gives you 10 pattern choices featuring different cats. So cute and cuddly you will want to sleep wearing this dress every night.

Fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Feed Your Soul

Feed Your Soul

So I’d been having one of “those” days. I’m sure that you know the type I am talking about. No major tragedies, just a lot of little things not quite going the way they should and wreaking havoc on your mood and the plans you’d made. Yep, definitely a Thoseday. Still, I managed to find some zen, take a moment to enjoy some music, a purely indulgent latte, and the company of this silly orange fur-ball. While the day might have been a mess, just that moment and a few freebies from Vision and e.marie managed to salvage my mood. I’d call that a silver lining.

ViSion

Now, about those freebies I mentioned. My bandeau top and cargo pants are both from Vision. I picked them both up at the Vision stop at the Second Life 17th Birthday Shop & Hop. The top is the free SL17B gift, while the pants are a free Vision group gift. You’ll need to wear the Vision group tag (there’s a group joiner there) for the pants. The Vision group also happens to be free to join at this time. The top has a texture change hud with 5 choices. The cargo pants come in the color shown with a hud that lets you change the color of the drawstring and metal parts.

Bandeau Top Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy
Cargo Pant Sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

e.marie

My latte with it’s fluffy whipped topping and cute little particle effect is by e.marie. You’ll find it waiting for you at the e.marie stop at the SL17B Shop and Hop event. It’s their free Second Life Birthday gift. The latte is copy, and has a bento hold animation. If you’re like me, after cruising around the enormous Shop and Hop shopping event you’ll be thankful for the sweet pick-me-up!

Practice the Walk.

Steady... walk like a beauty Queen 

Happy Day Fab Free! When I was growing up we had a cottage right on the beach. Always loved hearing the waves and smelling the fresh air while the breeze blew in the windows. So when I saw this cute set on Marketplace from Maya’s Buildings it brought me back to my childhood. Oh and I am practicing for Miss SL … no not really lol

Maya’s Buildings Sofa & table with plants is perfect for just about anywhere. I love this set. The chairs are texture change as well as the table top! This is available on Marketplace for 1L – So just grab it – for that price its worth it!

Another cute outfit for you to check out too from Mangula. I went to the shop and oh my gosh there are soooo many gifts.  The Amelia Set includes Sweater and Jeans.  To get it, just click on their subscriber unit and join for 100L. What I love about this is there is no group to join to take up space, subscribers don’t count towards your group limit.
