Purple Glory

Purple Dreams

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you’re all having fun this weekend and snatching up lots of sale items and freebies! I am going to share with you today pieces of this glorious purple outfit!

A Limited Edition Sale

Addams is having a limited edition sale of the Phoebe outfit- which includes this lovely sweater and jeans. These items are being sold in packs at 50 L each. What an amazing deal! Several textures and different colours come in each pack, but they are all in stripe options. This offer is only available this weekend, so head over to Addams ASAP to get Phoebe!

Feeling Fruity

The top I am wearing underneath is from Tooty Fruity. It is a past group gift, called Carlie top. Their group costs 99 Linden to join. The Addams special does not include the original under top for the special, so this top fits this outfit perfectly!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Off to Hogwarts!

Off to Hogwarts
Good day my lovely witches and wizards! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE all things Harry Potter? I have been a Potter-maniac since I grew up with the series as a child and this week I was able to collect a few free and on-sale goodies in SL that are HP-inspired! What a treat!

Goodies from Muggleborn

At least one store in SL that is partially inspired by the Harry Potter series is Muggleborn, although it certainly takes an adult twist on the theme. Note that Muggleborn is an Adult-rated sim and if you are not over 18 you definitely cannot visit it; there are a number of adult-only themed items sold here. Aside from that warning, however, I absolutely LOVE this store! They even have this AMAZING top, shorts and ties set on their lucky boards to play for all to win. It includes a top, shorts and a tie. There are different styling/ stripping options for the top and tie, and the shorts can be adjusted for male/trans avatars as well. The tie also has different styling options. Each item comes with an HUD to change the colour pattern to the respective four Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff). To get these items, walk towards the back of the store until you see the “muggle” lucky boards and join Muggleborn‘s free group to play and win this amazing outfit!

In addition to these amazing gifts, Muggleborn has many fantasy-themed free group gifts and free past hunt items which you can get at the front of the store. This is also a brand new Stay at Home Club gift from them, which is a wand with a colour hud! This one may take the cake from me because now I can run around SL with a wand whenever I like with this free gift!!! I am so psyched about this!

Wisteria is Perfect…

This hair is perfect for visiting Hogsmeade, or for bundling up in the winter (even if it is spring now… it’s still snowing where I come from). The hair seen in this look above is Wisteria from EscalteD. This is a past MM board prize, and you can also win it on their Lucky Boards if you join their VIP group for 99L. This hair is a full fatpack of natural and unnatural colours which allow you to change the hair to different styles, change the colour of the hat and the pom pom and the hair bows on each braided ponytail. If you have no attention span for that, every hair at EscalteD is currently on sale for 50% as part of the Let’s Stay at Home event, so anyone can buy it right now at a discounted price.

Harry Potter Skins @ Ritual

Ritual Skins Sale- A Harry Potter Skins Collection

I should also mention that these gorgeous skins I am wearing are from Ritual. They currently have a massive sale on, where all of their skins are on sale for 100L. This is an amazing deal, and although not under our 75L limit, it is a steal I thought I should mention with this post. These skins normally go for hundreds and they are just gorgeous. These are four Harry Potter-themed skins which were previously sold at the Majik event sponsored by Muggleborn. Seen in order, this is Griffin, Slyther, Raven and Huffle. The skins include two tones each and the makeup is included in the skins; they can’t be removed. These are beautiful, so I just had to mention them! The Ritual store may be downsizing, so now is the time to support this amazing skins creator.

Have a magical day, Fab Free!

Another Gift Head from Akeruka!

AK free Gift Head Stay at Home Gift

I have another full bento head gift to share with you, Fab Free. This is the new Advanced head from Akeruka and it is a limited-time gift. I will also be showing you how to get the free stay at home necklace gift I am currently wearing, and some poses available as a gift for members of the Lybra VIP group!

Stay at Home Gift Head

Akeruka is known for giving out free mesh heads and their new 1L gift is gorgeous. It is an “Advanced” BOM head. Simply join the Akeruka group for 150 Linden to get this gift. The head then will cost you 1 L. The total cost: 151 L for a bento mesh head that normally costs 5, 000 L. What a steal! This new model of the Advanced Akeruka Head has new features such as full BOM, and in includes detailed options of adding pores, oily skin, or wrinkles to your skin. It also has a “wet” feature to make it look like you have water droplets on your face, to make it look as if you are in the rain or just came out of the shower. These are just some of the cool advanced options with their new head! This offer is only available for a limited time, so go grab it while you still can.

Hopeful

I know it is a sad time in our world right now, but let’s try to be hopeful and pray for a better future during these difficult times.  This beautiful necklace by Secrets says “Hope” on it and that’s a great message for them to send out right now. This is a free Stay at Home Club gift.

300 Lybra Poses

If you happen to be a Lybra VIP, you can get a new set of 300 poses as a group gift. I used one of the poses in the pack to create this shot. This is a very generous gift. The Lybra VIP group costs 500 L to join.

Thank you for reading, Fab Free!

Dreams!

Dreams!

Hey Fab Free! I have a really exciting announcement! It is Dreams‘ 4th year anniversary and to celebrate they have a 500 Linden gift card available until March 31st! They also have two MASSIVE wall of group gifts- a variety of items for men and women in terms of clothing and there is also a bunch of eyes, eyelash appliers, shapes and other goodies in the mix! These offers are available to Dreams VIP group members, which costs only 50 Linden to join. You essentially get everything I am wearing plus 58+ more gifts for the low price of 50 L.

Tokio

I feel so spoiled after my shopping spree at Dreams! I absolutely love the boots I bought with my giftcard called Tokio.  These stylish pair include a hud which allows you to change the boots to 30 different plain colours and patterns. I love the animal patterns especially- they are very realistic! I just love boots so these made me happy! After I bought this pair I have a little over 200 Linden left on my card, which would give you enough to buy an outfit accessory or more shoes! I highly recommend it… the value of these boots is SO worth the group join fee! The giftcard is only available until March 31st, so get over their quickly to become a Dreams VIP and grab this 500 Linden gift card present!

Drowning in Group Gifts

I was really impressed by how many group gifts Dreams has for both men and women avatars. I counted 60 group gifts, and there are likely more coming;  this designer is very generous! They also have rolling MM boards and lucky chairs. I am currently wearing the Cali Jean Dress Fatpack and the Glasses Anniversary Fatpack, both which are group gifts from Dreams. They come with colour huds with many options and many of the gifts at Dreams are full fatpacks with huds included which allow you to change the dress and glasses to 8-9 different colours. This is always a huge plus for me- I love being able to customize my look! These items are great and just a small selection of the gifts available at Dreams.

Dreams!

Weekly Dreamy Sales

In addition to the huge number of group gifts, Dreams also does weekly sales. Each week you can buy single items for 45L or 75L, items that are well within the Fab Free limit! Their weekly sales are available Friday- Sunday every week- so check these out! You can also buy full fatpacks at a discounted price during these sales (250 L). The sales are posted in their group notices and you can see them displayed in the weekly sales section of their store.

Support Your Community

Dreams is currently in need of support, and if they aren’t able to make enough sales in the coming months they may need to shut down their in-world store completely due to current economic uncertainty in both worlds. That’s one of the reasons I decided to join the Dreams group- to try to support this store while I still can! If they get more support they will hopefully be able to stay open! Dreams has been so generous in the past four years so I hope the SL community can pull through and give back- even if it is through a small way like joining their low-price group and checking out their (under 75 L) weekly sales.

Thanks for reading and supporting Fab Free!

xx- Caroline

Modern Woman

Modern Woman

Hey, Fab Free! Today I will being doing a little feature on the Lybra VIP group! It is indeed a paid group with a 500 L fee to join, but membership to the group gives you access to many wonderful things including fatpack gifts, and monthly gift cards. I will also be showing you all some free and almost-free accessories and makeups to accompany the latest group gift at Lybra, so read below for more details!

Lybra VIP 2020 Perks

At Lybra, the 500 L join fee for their VIP group is definitely an investment and well worth the benefits. There are other benefits you get through this group in addition to the past group gifts. One of the recently added perks in Lybra‘s VIP group is that every month members get a 500 L gift card. That equals 6,000 Linden in store credit per year! I joined during the first couple days of March and was able to cash in on the monthly promotion for the first three months of the year. Time for a shopping spree, Fab Free! Just head over to the Lybra VIP members lobby on the main floor of the store, to pickup the group, gifts cards and past member’s gifts.

Andrea

The most recent VIP group gift is Andrea. It’s a really gorgeous outfit, and can work for business or leisure. It include a top and slacks and it comes with several detailed colour huds.  I decided to take my photo above in a sim dedicated to the twentieth century sci-fi author H.P. Lovecraft, and I can even see this outfit working for modernist roleplay needs. Overall, this outfit is a keeper and it looks super fancy and expensive! You’ll radiate with class wearing this.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza (Freya & Isis)
  • Alice Signature
  •  Slink Hourglass

The Andrea set is so customizable and very easy to mix and match with other accessories, makeups and shoes, so I had no problem adding some wonderful free and cheap items to this look, so keep reading!

The Classy Eclatant Heels

KC Couture currently has a couple gifts out for free, or almost-free themes groups right now, which are tucked in behind the corner. The pair I have on right now are the gift for MLM offers (5 L join), called the Eclatant Heels. They’re very classy and intricate, and for 5L only these are a great steal.

Free Eyeshadow!

I added a free eyeshadow to this outfit in a green and brown shade to match my top and pants. This eyeshadow is from Altice. It is made for Genus heads, and can be used on BOM heads as well. It is a free gift with a free group join.

Some Bangles

The Bangles I have on right now perfectly match the colours I selected on the Andrea Fatpack, and they are one of the past group gifts from Death Row Designs that you can pick up as a free group gift until March 18th, which I recently blogged about. These are the “Wood Bangles”, in the colour set and the Mono set. They are gorgeous and can see them going with a lot of outfits. You can pick up the bangles as one of DRD‘s past group gifts which are available for free right now. Make sure to head over there soon as these will be retiring in the next week!

A Steamy Advent Calendar

A Steamy Advent

Hey, Fab Free! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know no one likes when Monday comes around but I have some pretty awesome freebies to share with you from Cremosas right now, so I hope this cheers you up from those Monday blues!

Cremosas’ February Advent Calendar

Today I am showing you a selection of free items from Cremosas, which are available to get until February 29th. These lovely presents are just a taste of some of the gifts you can get from their February Advent Calendar. Cremosas has been so generous that they have kept the advent train going since December- and been giving away a free advent gift every day since December 1st. You can grab their past advent prizes for the month of February for free now at their mainstore. Simply find the calendar, join the free Cremosas group, and click the numbers of each day of the month on their calendar. There are currently 24 gifts available for the month, and there will be a new one released each day until the 29th.

Steamy Advent Prizes

The prizes on the advent calendar for this month are really nice- and quite steamy! There is a lot of lingerie, sexy shoes and cute finds in many different colours. It’s a lovely selection of gifts. Naturally, I gravitated toward these great black boots, (which are sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Physique and Maitreya) (Day 4 gift) and this sexy dress (Day 5 gift) to make this outfit. I am also wearing a set of their heart bento nails (which work with Belleza, Slink and Maitreya), which is the gift for day 11.

Dress Sizes

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

And a Free Choker to Top it off!

The perfect acccesory to complete this outfit is a free gift which you can grab at the current round of Access. It is a choker which comes in pink and red by Slightly Rebellious. Just head over to their booth at the event to pick it up.

Want Cremosas’ previous Advent gifts too?

If you want to get Cremosas‘ past advent prizes from December and January as well, they are all available as group gifts in the Cremosas VIP group, which costs 100 L to join. They are available in the store next to the current advent calendar. Enjoy!

Have fun, Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/02/2018 – Cremosas Store

Cremosas Store
Hello hello Fab Free’rs and Hallelujah it’s the weekend! This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Cremosas Store. Once again this shop is a ladie’s fashion boutique, sorry gentlemen. The style at Cremosas is eclectic and urban. You’ll find a mix of casual clothing, lingerie, and going out attire. Most of the clothing appears to be mesh, though there may be some applier items. Though the shop is not super huge, you’ll find there is a lot of shopping to be had here. There are always sales going on it would seem. As I browsed through Cremosas Store I saw Promo areas, and even a 25 linden special vendor. Each of the main areas of the store are well marked with lighted signs. To get the good stuff, you know the Group Gifts, you’ll see almost an entire wall with FREE gifts and other group offers.
Cremosas Gifts & Offers
Cremosas Store has two in-world store groups, a FREE group that is FREE to join. The FREE group has many group gifts available, all above the sign that says “FREE Group Gift”. The second group is a “VIP Gift” Group which has a join fee of 100 linden. As shown above this group also has several group gifts available above the “VIP Group Gift” sign. As if that were not enough there also many many many other group gifts at Cremosas Store for other affiliated groups. You can see all those currently available gifts and their corresponding group above the large “Group Gift” sign. This is also where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift at Cremosas Store. Kathryn showed off the Cremosas gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Put on Your Red Dress, Baby!.”  Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join if you are not already a member. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 02/24/2018 – Sexy Princess

Sexy Princess Exterior
Hey Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I have to apologize for the lack of a “Designer Friday” post. I completely dropped the ball and lost track of what day it was. This week was fast! Even though it’s Saturday night instead of Friday, don’t let that deter you from checking out Sexy Princess. That’s a shop, not a person! I think the store name Sexy Princess is really pretty self explanatory. The shop specializes in cute/sexy ladies clothes. I saw short dresses, skirts, and lingerie the most. Also, there are mesh clothes as well as applier clothing. The store is easy to walk through, with most of the vendors along the walls. Just inside the entrance is where you’ll find the usual information, and information about events and store associated groups.
Sexy Princess Gifts & Events
As you meander around to the back of the Sexy Princess store you’ll find the room of group gifts. As you can see there are several group gifts currently available at Sexy Princess. The Sexy Princess group is FREE to join. Some of the gifts shown require other groups tags to receive. One such gift is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift The Fab Free group is also FREE to join. Don’t miss out on these great gifts! In addition, I want to mention that Sexy Princess group members can also participate in a raffle for a 1000L Gift Card to Sexy Princess. The only other stipulation is that your avatar must be at least 1 month old. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and don’t miss out on these great gifts!
