So Shiny

So Shiny

Good Evening, FabFree! Monday the 13th… now that’s my idea of an unlucky day. Well, except that 13 has always been a lucky number for me… and I don’t mind Mondays. Okay, I don’t know where I was going with this except that I played some Gachas over at Shiny Shabby and I got lucky and …. unlucky.

Go for Gray

Anyway.  I hopped over to the Shinny Shabby to see what they had in store for us today. Lots of really gorgeous things, I even spent some “real” lindens. But there are a lot of lovely free gifts set out by generous designers too. Just join the free Shiny Shabby group and collect the presents at many of the booths. I was tickled to see that !gO!, one of my favs, had a gift box for us some I hurry over to the booth. And, of course I fell in love with the beautiful Jola Gacha.

The delightful dress and vest combo comes in five colors as does the fur coat. You can also win heels and matching shoulder bags ( not shown )  The shoulder bag I am showing is !gO!’s free gift to everyone! Just join the free Shinny Shabby group and pick up your gift. My unlucky came in that I couldn’t pull the Rare… but I’m happy as can be with my winnings!

Sizes Included for the Jola Gacha

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

Pastel

Pastel

Hey FabFree! I’m taking a day off from searching the Grid and teleporting hither and yon. January is such a good time to just cuddle up someplace warm and read a book. I tend to “nest” on days like this. Lots of pillows and soft blankets. Maybe a nice hot cup of tea or cocoa. Doesn’t that sound delightful? Oh, and of course, you have to have something super soft and cozy to wear, right?

Soft Pastel

The Annex has me covered with that last one. This is the “Lynn” dress from Annex and it’s the current free gift for members of the Teleport HUB group. I love the soft texture and the pastel pink. Doesn’t it look like it made of that fleece blanket material? Perfect for a winter day inside.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Now, I’ve talked about the Teleport HUB Group before but let me refresh your memories. You can join Teleport HUB at any shop that offers the group gifts and it will only set you back 10 little Lindens. That one time fee will open up a huge selection of designers offering lots of gifts.  I have noticed the many designers do leave the Teleport Hub gifts up a bit longer than a regular group gift. But I don’t mind a ‘relaxed’ renewal no and then.

Life is a Snowglobe

Life is a Snowglobe

Ah, the glories of winter!  In RL, winter right now is a brown earth and grey skies kind of an affair, and it’s not exactly what I would classify as pretty.  So, I’m nipping inworld to enjoy the snowglobe effect of the gorgeous Luane’s World.  Best of all, I don’t have to shovel any of this!

Round to the Circle

I headed back to Designer Circle again because there was another fantastic gift I wanted to show you.  My entire outfit – top, skirt and boots – are courtesy of Apple Heart.  I love a good winter white, and this outfit is pretty perfect.  Happily, it’s also completely free!  No group join required either, so go pick it up before this round ends!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Feeling Euphoric

My fave eye designer, Euphoric, are blessing us in the New Year with a brand new group gift.  My pretty new eyes come with appliers for Genus, Lelutka, Catwa, Laq and Vista, and come in several different hues that are sure to please.  You can even do each eye in a different colour, if you so desire.  To get yours, join the free group and then click on the gift.  There are a bunch of others to grab while you’re at it!

Pose it Out

Lyrium are also offering some free goodies right now, with a pack of several free poses at their new store.  No need to join a group here, just click on the vendor above the main desk and you’re good to go!

It’s so pretty here, I may never leave!

Stunning

Stunning

I was just tickled to have another excuse to get all fancy and dressed up.  Especially when I saw this drop dead gorgeous gown from DM. Just… wow!

All Dolled Up

This is the “Alissa” gown from DM and you can swing by the main store and pick it up for free. DM has so generously set this lovely gown out as a free New Years gift for the Group members. The gown comes with a HUD to pick one of six colors. Each one is just as stunning as the black and make this gown wearable year round. Since this is an extra special New Years gift it may disappear soon. So hurry over.

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.

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gadzooks, FabFree! It’s already Christmas Eve. Okay, be honest, how many of you were running around today doing the last minute shopping? I , personally, plead the fifth! 😉

Happy Christmas Eve Gift

Back when I was a kid, my folks always let me open one gift on Christmas Eve. I agonized over my choice each year. Even though I’m not a kid anymore, I got a great Christmas Eve gift to open. Truth has given all of us Group members a wonderful Holiday gift with this lovely new hairstyle – Eternity.  The gorgeous updo come with “addable” bangs to suit your taste.

Treating Myself

I grabbed this super cute top as a holiday gift for myself. “Rosie” is the latest Group Gift from Sweet Thing. The gift comes with three colors of the blouse all with the gold holly print. I liked the black best for the sparkly contrast. Once you join the free Group, check out the other past Group gifts available. Some of them require 1L but you get it right back.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza _ Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass,

 

Most of all…. Gabriel and I wish all of you the most wonderful Holiday Season. Love your friends and family, Celebrate with joy and feast with abandon! Happy Holidays to All of the best Readers on the Grid!

In Search of a Ballroom

In Search of a Ballroom

It has always been my dream to go to some insane ball in an equally insane and beautiful palace.  You know, the type of place that glows with warmth and possibility.  The rooms would be welcoming and the people mysterious and regal.  I’m fairly certain the closest I’ll get to that is SL, so I’m making it happen!

Excuse Me, Miss

There’s a gorgeous new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  I just had to get my mitts on this pretty dress.  It comes in a whole fatpack of colours and you can even change the colour of the beads.  Miss Chelsea is one of my favourite stores and their outfits never fail to turn heads!  To get yours, join the group for 100L and this lovely dress (and all the other gifts that you’ll find on the front desk) will be yours!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

In Heels

My new golden heels are a free gift I picked up over at ChicChica.  When you land, tp up to the store and click on the vendor on the wall to the right of the main desk.  Just pay 0L for them, and they’re all yours in both golden and black versions.  Super classy and sexy all at once!  These lovely heels come sized for Belleza and Maitreya!

Have a ball tonight!

Shop & Hop With Addams For FREE Boots & A 300L Instore Credit!

FabFree: Shop & Hop With Addams For FREE Boots& A 300L Instore Credit!

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  Guess who is spoiling us again?!?!  ADDAMS!  There are currently three new gifts at the Shop & Hop Event inside the Addams display!

Addams Promo – Three Gifts!

At the Addams Display during The Shop & Hop Event along with some deeply discounted megapacks, you’ll find  the Maisie Boots in High Sole and Regular Sole for FREE with ton of solid & print options as well as a sign you can slap for 300L of instore credit with your Addams group tag (19L to join).

It’s super laggy at this event and a little tough to get into as it has just begun, but don’t worry – it runs until January 6th so you have plenty of time.  This is also when your credit will expire, so be sure you use it up before this date.

After you have slapped the sign for your 300L instore credit…

Make sure you go to the Addams Store and check your credit at the terminal.  Once you see your balance is there, you can start shopping!  I picked up the Kenadee Knotted Top with my credit and didn’t have to pay 1L.  In fact, I have 50L of credit worth left over as it was just 250L.

Happy free shopping, on Addams!  ♥  Here’s a closer look at those FREE BOOTS!

Happy Holidays! ADDAMS at Shop & Hop Event 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🙌🔥🔥

OH!  And.. Also a little decor…

In my photo on the floor around me you’ll see some really pretty Festive Papers and the Angels in Love figurine.  These items are FREE group gifts at Nutmeg with a free group join!
