All The Small Things

All The Small Things

Oh hi there, you seem to have caught my stuffing my face. Oh who am I kidding, I’ve been stuffing my face all morning. For some reason I wasn’t really feeling the weekend sales (shock and awe!) so I spent a pleasant morning wandering around the Asian Pacific Heritage Festival. Everyone knows that the best part of going to any festival is visiting the booths to see what they’re giving away, and EATING. I was able to partake in both activities.

Festive

Yes, a lot of the booths at the Asian Pacific Heritage Festival are giving out free gifts. I gathered some cute little things, including the yumminess that I’m currently pigging out on and also these fab earrings. The earrings are lotus from Zaara (they come in gold or silver) and the food is Sake Ikura don by Mamere. It is wonderfully animated and includes the holdable bowl, holdable chopsticks, a décor version, and a dispenser. All for free and no group join is required!

The festival runs for the entire month of May, with the last day being on May 31st.

Fashionable

I obvs needed a new dress to wear to the festival, so before I headed over I stopped at the Petry Model Store. There is so much good stuff there! The first room when you walk in is full of 30L items, some even full outfits. Keep going into the store and there are free group gifts, and free gifts for pretty much every group you can think of (including FabFree!). I honestly loved every single thing I grabbed. Anyway, this dress is the free gift for the Inside Your Inventory group, which is free to join. It comes in with a HUD full of denim colors and sizes for:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Sis
  • Venus
  • Freya

That’s all from me for now, FabFree! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

I Can Hear Them Whisper

I can hear them whisper

I can’t believe that Blueberry has been around for 10 years! That’s an eternity in SL time. There are various happenings at the store in celebration and you definitely don’t want to miss them, so allow me to enumerate. 

New Gift

There’s a new group gift at the Blueberry main store and oh my is it pretty. It’s called Decade and included is a dress version and a shirt version. I’m wearing the dress here. There’s also a very extensive HUD for all of your customization needs – the group notice says it’s 37 colors and 18 patterns! Not to mention options for things like button and panty color. Oh! I wanted to mention the panties too. Yes, I just exclaimed over free panties. They are a separate piece and will certainly be useful under other outfits as well. Bonus gift!

Sizes:

  • Ebody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Kups
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Store Credit

There is a free 500L store credit that you will find in the Blueberry group notices. When you attach it and click to apply the funds to your store credit balance, there’s a popup that the credit will expire in 3 weeks. it certainly won’t last that long though! Because…

Sale!

There’s also a sale going on and the entire store at Blueberry is 50% off. So if you use your credit now you can get twice as much stuff. Math! I’ve found that I’m a sucker for shoes that lace up the leg and I grabbed these Solstice sandals (which you can only see the very top of) in a fatpack – we’re talking flat/high feet, height options for the laces from ankle to knee and clear up to thigh, and lots of colors. A whole fatpack at half price was only 225L but free with my giftcard, so I was able to grab a couple of other cute pieces as well!

The sale started on Saturday and will last for 5 days, so I guess until Thursday-ish? The good news is that, if you can’t get there for the sale, the credit is in group notices and Blueberry leaves up their old group gifts so the gift will probably remain available. It’s 20L to join Blueberry‘s group but you’re already in it so no problem there, right? And if not, that’s 20L very well spent. Happy Anniversary Blueberry!

Donut Bring Me Down

Donut Bring me Down

I’m always a sucker for anything that happens to have a donut on it.  Real donuts, fake donuts, donut stickers, donut anything.  I’m here for it.

To Saki or Not to Saki

Saki Event is in fully swing, and there are a bunch of free gifts to pick up.  You don’t even need to join a group, just click on the boxes and buy for 0L.  Be aware though that there are a few for 5L and 1L as well, so don’t just blindly click if you’re on a budget.  I picked up this lacy romper (donut city!) by Analogic for free, as well as the little choker by Reed which brings me back to high school when these things first came out (yes je suis old).  Anyway, not sure how long this event is running, so get on over there as soon as.

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Hope your weekend was filled with donuts, or whatever else might strike your fancy!

The Upside Down

Hey gang,

As everyone dons their Easter best, here is me in all my dark INFP-ish-ness lost someplace looking for the Upside Down.  Now if you have ever watched Stranger Things, you know that the Upside Down is much more Halloween-ish and not at all Easter-ish.  You’ll find no fluffy bunnies here.

However!

In second life you can find an event called The Upside Down and at that event you can find many little 10L goodies.  Like this metallic blue hoodie from Indigenous (you simply cannot go exploring without your best metallic blue hoodie!), and this backdrop from Something New.  Both items are 10L and there is no group required.  The hoodie comes with a matching top and  fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Curvy
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Hourglass

This event continues until the 30th of April, so you do have time, but why wait, go enjoy yourself!  It’s a fun theme.

Oh and Happy Easter and Passover y’all!  Feel free to send me some Cadbury Creme Eggs if you are feeling generous.  😉

Here I Go Again

Here I Go Again
Happy Friday FabFree! I’m super excited for another weekend. To celebrate I’ve…gotten dressed! And naturally when I get dressed there are some freebies and bargains to be had!

Free

A new round of Cosmopolitan started on April 4th, so I, being the responsible freebie blogger that I am, scampered over to see if there were new freebies out. If you’re not familiar with this event, there are always two easels right when you walk in on either side of the doors that hold a freebie each. All you have to do is join the free event group and snatch up each free gift. This round, one of the free gifts is this fantastic skirt. It’s seriously so well made and versatile. There is a HUD of colors that lets you change the skirt, belt, details, and pockets all independently of each other and sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Be sure to grab yours before the round ends!

Sale

And now on to the bargain. Another good thing about Fridays, besides the weekend that follows, is probably my favorite of the weekly events – Fifty Linden Friday! I picked up this hair from Wasabi. I just love the high braided pigtails. It includes a few HUDs full of colors, several rigged sizes, and the bangs are a separate piece. Pretty good deal for only 50L, if you ask me.

The Summer’s Out of Reach

The summer's out of reach

The Miix Event is having an anniversary round! Aline already told us about it here. Because of the anniversary, there’s a free gift at almost every booth. And there are a lot of booths. You will have to join the Hype Events group to get them, which is free to join. This round (and all of the glorious freebies therein) will last until April 20th.

I decided to take this opportunity to play one of my favorite games – “How Many Freebies Can Allison Wear At Once?”: Miix Edition. Spoiler…the answer is a lot.  I’ve been dying for a beach lately and thought that this look could scratch that itch. I ended up at a super cool deserted boardwalk (slurl down below) with a more end of summer type vibe but it’s still ice cream on the boardwalk! The free items I’m wearing from the Miix Event, in no particular order are:

  • Free eyes from Tville – soooooo gorgeous, for real, they might become my new everyday eyes (so weird that that statement makes sense in this virtual world of ours)
  • Free lipstick from SIDIKA SAKA – the gift includes a blush and 7 vibrant lip shades
  • Free eyeliner from Seduction – a nice winged look for evox, including a tintable version
  • Free outfit by FurtaCor – the shorts and sweatshirt are one piece and it includes a HUD full of solid and pattern color options! Perfect for that late summer evening. There are sizes for:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Maitreya
    – Physique
    – Venus
  • Free necklace by No Cabide
  • Free tattoo by SPT
  • Free ice cream cone by BBB – comes in strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate!

Phew I told you it was a lot, and I didn’t even scratch the surface. You’re bound to find something that you love. ❤

We Don’t Talk About Bruno

We Don't Talk About Bruno What? I’ve got elementary school aged kids, and the name of these lovely eyes is “Encanto.” I really had no choice when it came to a title for this post. I guess that’s something you should know about me; my titles will always be song lyrics and they probably won’t make any sense 50% of the time. Sorry in advance. Another thing that you should know about – I will stalk a lucky board with no mercy.

Seriously Lucky

I was over at Pink Cream Pie the other day and I didn’t even need to stalk. I just kept winning and winning on the lucky boards! It was fantastic. The free lucky boards there are really great, there are like 20 of them so it seems like they’re always changing AND the prize in each one changes with each new letter too! I managed to luck into this Kimmy crop top and shorts, both in this pretty “pompom” color. The lacing on both items is seriously cute. Both come with sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

You’ll need to join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L (the group cost makes me giggle each time I see it, tell me I’m not the only one?) and wait patiently for some lucky board prizes. Hopefully, like me, you won’t have to wait too long.

Pretty Eyes

My so very pretty eyes and glossy gorgeous lips are the free group gifts at lovelysweet. There was a time when part of my mission in SL was to seek out nice, realistic eyes but it is so much easier to find great quality eyes now. Aren’t these so bright and beautiful? Included is 8 colors and appliers for:

  • Catwa
  • Lelutka
  • Omega

Besides the free eyes, I also got free glossy perfect lipstick! It comes as an evo x BOM layer and includes 5 bright, vibrant, shiny shades! Both free gifts can be yours simply by making a trip to lovelysweet, joining the free group, and clicking the pictures on the wall. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Paint It Black

Paint It Black
One of my favorite quirks of Second Life is that when an event has a birthday, it gives us gifts! The current first anniversary round of 60 Special Go is no exception. Besides the fact that everything is 60L (a bonus in and of itself) lots of the booths have 6L or free gifts out to celebrate. There is no group join needed, you’ve just gotta tp in and start clicking.

I grabbed this free pose at the M&T booth. It’s called “kiss the rain” and it’s just so fun and dramatic. I also couldn’t resist this fab 6L dress from *AS*. Doroty is a great little mini featuring a loose skirt, harness, a HUD that lets you choose from a few color options, and sizes for:

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

60 Special Go is opened through the end of March, with the last day being March 31st. I hope that you have time to hop over and snatch up the freebies and great deals before they’re gone!

You Make me Happy

I’ve got a quick one for you, Fabbies!  Valentine’s Day celebrations are behind us, and bit by bit the gifties are disappearing from the grid – so hurry up and read on if you’d like a pretty pile of freebies!

Like a Dove

The Free Dove celebrated Valentine’s Day with a huge groaning table of gifts!  I spoke to the lovely owner of the Free Dove, Palomma Casanova, and she is poised to have these gifts removed.  She’s holding on for juuuust a little longer so that FabFree readers can nip in and get them before they’re gone.  Don’t wait!  I picked up this fantastic sweater and boots combo (with four different colour options in the HUD) by Stars Fashion for completely free.  Just join the Free Dove group, and click on the boxes on the table.  There’s always something awesome at the Free Dove to check out.  You can see all the Valentine’s Day gifts HERE, before they’re gone for good (and yes, there are few for the guys too!).  RUN DON’T WALK!

  • Freya
