Good Monday Afternoon, Fab Fam! Welcome to the fresh new week! Now that we are a mere seven days out from Valentines, the Grid is absolutely drenched in hearts and chocolates and flowers and lil nekkid babies flying around. What with the Shop and Hop going all hearts and cupids and all the Valentine themed hunts… I guess we should embrace it, right? So that’s what I’m doing today with a cute little free gift from the Miix Event.
This is the “Hearts Dress” and it’s made by FurtaCor for the Miix Event. FurtaCor has also made a black and red version of this dress for it’s own group members at the event. Just wear your FurtaCor group tag to get that one. The FurtaCor group is only 50L to join so why not, right? This pink version of the dress is for the freeto join Miix Event group.
The Miix Event runs until the 20th of February so get down there and revel in some Valentine’s freebies and fun.

Hihi Faboo Peeps!
There are so many fun hunts and events going on right now on the grid, a girl (or a guy!) barely knows where to turn! That’s when you turn to good old reliable Fab Free. We work as a kick arse team scoping out the freebies and dealios to make it easier for y’all!
But I digress.
One of the hunts happening right now is at Shanti. You search for 10 items, 2L each, and all exclusive to this hunt. Items are both inside the store and out in the mall. You are looking for a mesh XO (hugs and kisses symbol). I am wearing one of the items you can find in the hunt, I absolutely love the bohemian style of these dresses. This outfit fits:
The hunt runs until the 21st, so you have plenty of time to find everything. There is also a key for the hunt posted in the store.

I’m back and blushing, my dear FabFree readers! It’s one of those days where I feel like romance is indeed not dead. One of those days where I’m reveling in sweet words, kind gestures and whispered promises. You can’t really beat that with a stick, unless you’re adding some freebiesand even a romantic dinner for two.
Back at It
I do love showing off my favourite finds from Shop & Hop. I realise that not everyone has the gumption to hit up 10 sims filled with people to get a pile of boxes filled with things that might not necessarily float their boat. So, we do a bit of the sorting for you here on the blog, and then pick the standouts. Here’s what I’m in love with today:
FREEdress by Stories & Co. sized for Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Legacy Perky Petite
Been going through more of my goodies from Shop & Hop and did a bit of mixin’ and matchin’ for y’all! It’s always so much fun when Shop & Hop comes to town, though our inventories need to be burped after, from being so overstuffed after! Nonetheless, I have a bunch of freebies so that all our inventories can burp in unison and the entire grid will need to be restarted (I hope not!)!
An Unexpected Surprise – Unisex Goodies!
Aren’t my roses and box of candy just adorable? They are part of a pose set from PosED which is a free gift at Shop & Hop (called Unexpected Surprise! Did ya see that one coming?). It is unisex, so the guys can get in on the fun too (hey, they deserve roses and candy too those men of ours!). My cute necklace is also part of a free unisex giftie from FashionNatic, they call it a broken hearts necklace but since you can wear one half, and you other half wears, well, the other half… I see it more as a connected heart. They match up together and can be customized with any initials you like. They fit Legacy, Maitreya and Kupra for women and Gianni, Jake and Legacy for the guys.
It’s that time of year once again, when there are hearts and cupids all around and the world is blissfully pink (ok and red, black, white, purple…)! Now, Valentine’s Day has not notoriously been my best holiday (I got dumped once, when I was 20, on Valentines Day.) but nowadays, the abundance of so many things pink makes me like it so much more!
It’s also the time of the year for another Shop & Hop. Squee! I actually got a late start with it and haven’t gone through everything yet, but I’ve got a couple of things for you to whet your appetite a bit.
As they say on Big Brother…. “But first”, I have a little something for you from Astralia. If you are one of their Very Important Unicorns, this super cute boba tea bear is the new free group gift. You have a choice of several sayings, the one I chose made me giggle so it was a keeper. The Astralia group is 149L to join. This came in very handy while I was running around Shop & Hop at top speed. I got very thirsty!
Here is a close up of it for you:
Now on to Shop & Hop
I wanted to put together a cute Valentine-y post and what better place to scoop up a poop load of goodies than Shop & Hop?! This cute backdrop was a free gift from M-BdP. It comes with some cute poses built in including a “Will you marry me?” pose!
These smexy shoes and stockings are the free gift from Aurora and fit:
There is no group required to scoop up the freebies at Shop & Hop, but leave yourself plenty of time because it will take you a good while to peruse the entire mall.
Happy Shopping & Hopping kiddos!

So… I admit it, I hoarded some of my Valentine’s Candy so as you can see…. lol aaaand, I’m using it to look for kisses (ok not really!). I *am* overdue for some kissing though! lol
Anyhoo, this super cute top and skirt are from the Life is Sweet and So are You Hunt and you can find them at The Sissy Bar. This hunt runs until March 31. It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item. This cute outfit is a 1L prize. It comes in:
This picture makes me very much yearn for spring and all its blissful pastel colors though. ahhhhh. Soon my friends, very soon!
Hey There FabFree! Remember a few days ago I was talking about all the Valentines Hunts I was hunting down? Well, I’ve been quite the huntress there past few days and I’m here to show off my booty…. um I mean my treasures… the prizes!
So anyway… prize number one in the “My Funny Valentine Hunt” is from Go Frock Yourself. Speaking of booty… What? NO! Never mind… This is the super cute cold shoulder blouse: The Metal Rose Shirt. The metal part is in three of the six color/pattern choices. Three are a slick metallic looks while the others are these soft vintage rose patterns.
Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
SLink – Hourglass, Physique
Prize number two is this pose full of yummy chocolate and wine.( All included) The “No Excuse” pose from Shutter Up, expresses just how I feel about chocolate… and wine and indulgence -> There’s no excuse NOT to!
The My Funny Valentine Hunt runs until February 28th so no excuses to miss this one!

Mesh Head – LeLutka (Spencer- w/ my own edited shape)
Although I don’t dislike Valentine’s day, I just find the holiday kinda cheesy. Sure, I love going out with my beau, but all the hearts and chocolates and roses? Not really for me. As you may remember, I’m more of a Halloween kinda gal! I can still celebrate V-day in a darker gothic style if I want to this year, so I put together this gothic romantic look for V-day.
There are several love-themed hunts going this month, as I am sure you all were gleefully waiting for. Ari-Pari also has a host of Valentine’s hunt prizes available at their main store. First up is their prize on the Love For All Hunt, which is where I got this awesome heart plant! The hint is, “don’t put my love upon no shelf!”. Every prize on the Love For All Hunt is free, so go get ’em!
The second item I am showing is also at Ari-Pari: the prize for the Leather & Lace Hunt 4 (LALH4). The prize is the Amy Blouse, which you can change via a number of colours in a HUD, and the Amy Skirt that comes in black suede. The hint is: “you’ll find me near the serpent resting on a tree”. This great prize costs only 1L.
The Amui Outlet
After reading Arielle’s awesome post the other day about the gift card at Amui, I checked out the store. I discovered that Amui also has an outlet in their plaza. I got these great boots called Lolita boots in a fatpack of different black textures, and they cost only 75L at the outlet. Steal! Plus, it’s under our Fab 75L limit. Woot! Go get ’em boots while they’re on sale at the outlet!
What makes this look “spooky” is the makeup, in my opinion. I rocked out some glitter eye makeup and smeared lipstick with the new, free BOM updates (#5) from Izzie’s. Just head over to the “Bom Updates V” sign. The package is loaded with BOM makeups, skins, tears and more designed for a variety of heads to be used with bakes on mesh, which is my go-to now. Some of the makeups even work with heads they are not designed for; these are extremely high-quality items! These freebies are only available until February 8th, so make sure you scoop these up quickly before they go away and for sale again.
I paired the Izzie’s makeups up with the LOGO Ivona head, as Izzie’s designed several BOM makeups in the bundle mentioned above specifically for LOGO . I blogged about the monthly LOGO head deal last month, but I wanted to include more details about it and to clarify how this promotion works. Please note that this promotion is not an under 75L deal, I just wanted to give some information about these heads that are going on sale because several fab free readers inquired about this offer and have asked me to include it on the blog. Plus, I am buying them and using them in my photos anyways (at least once a month), so I figured I may as well tell you about the deal when I am wearing these amazing heads.
Each month, LOGO is selling an older head- but still fully bento, BOM, and mesh- for only 300 L once a month. As long as you join their free group you can get in on the deal. This month, the head is Ivona and it costs 300L in February. There is a catch, however.
What’s the catch?
In order to buy these LOGO heads for only 300 L every month, you need to have previously owned the LOGO Animation & Customization Hud. If you do not own it, you can buy it at the LOGO main store. You need to own the hud previously to use all the makeups and bells whistles with this head, and to install BOM into it. The customizations huds are full-price- not on sale. You may have gotten the hud for free if you grabbed the freeChelsea head gift back in November (which I blogged about here). That gift is no longer available, but if you did get the customization and animation huds then, just redeliver your Chelsea head and re-open the customization hud to use it with these sale heads. I used the female customization hud that came with Chelsea (after a re-delivery)- and it worked perfectly for me!
Buying the logo customization hud is a one-time purchase and once you own that the customization HUDs will work with ANY LOGO head (male or female) so you only need to purchase it once to get in on the monthly promotion. Considering these heads normally go for full price between 2500-3500 L each, this is an amazing price! The current head on sale at LOGO, for 300 L only, is the Ivona head, pictured below.
Hair – EscalateD Amina- Naturals Universal Hud (Available at We Love Roleplay for 25% off) Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara Mesh Head, Eyes & Skin – LOGO Ivona (On sale temporarily for 300 Linden/ Group sale/ Group is Free to Join) Eye Glitter- Izzie’s – LOGO – 11 Glitter Eyeshadow emerald d, in Bom Updates V (Free)
Lipstick- Izzie’s – LOGO – Smeared Lipstick raspberry (darker) Bom Updates V (Free) Nails – Maitreya Lara Photo Location– Luane’s Magical World
Well, it’s that time of year again… cupids are flying everywhere, little heart shaped boxes of chocolate are being eaten, romance is in the air! Whether or not you have a Valentine (if you don’t, then please be your own Valentine and give yourself lots of love and goodies!!!) it’s a perfect excuse to wear some very sexy red clothing (not that you NEED an excuse, of course!), and you can begin by spoiling yourself with this gorgeous dress from Le’La! You can find it on her Winter Sale wall (its pink on there) and it’s yours for only 49L! It comes with a HUD which has 15 colors to change up every. single. section of this dress, plus gems which can be worn or not worn and have 5 color options. So truly this is a dress for every. single. occasion!! The sale goes until the weekend after Valentine’s Day!
It comes in :
Stay beautiful loves!

Hey, Fab Free! How is your week going? I decided to hang out at the beach with some of the new Valentine’s gifts I found this week. It’s still frightfully cold where I am in the real world so it’s nice to fantasize about escaping away… so here I am having a romantic walk on the beach with myself!
Seniha- Milla Dress
Seniha has a brand new gift waiting for you! It is the V-Day Milla Dress, and it’s lovely. The dress comes in this pattern of roses and love, but you can also wear it in a solid pink colour. It’s perfect! To get the gift, simply join the freeSeniha group. There are also some new lucky letters at the store themed for V-day too, so hopefully you will get lucky while you’re there!
A Valentine’s Skin Hunt
Are you in need of a new skin? I have great news for you! 7 Deadly Skins is running a Valentine’s hunt and there are 15 skins available for men and women in each of the 15 prizes. The hunt item you are looking for is a little heart, and all items are priced to 0L- so the hunt is 100% free. I am currently wearing the “Timeless” skin in the taupe skin shade. It is omega, and most the skins on the hunt are either omega or bakes on mesh (BOM). Good luck hunting!
