FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Miss Me?

Miss Me

I travel in RL for my job and I wished I looked this good when I do (sighs).  I would never be able to rush from gate to gate in those heels; I would be lucky to get to the first gate without taking off my shoes LOL.  That is the beauty of SL you can wear heels that are completely unreasonable in the RL, clothes that you would never wear on your flesh and blood body, have a completely different hairstyle and color everyday or every hour if you choose.

The outfit I am wearing is a free group gift from Catarsis and I just love the detail on the jumpsuit with the creases and folds, so realistic.   The jumpsuit comes in 7 different colors to choose from.

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

In Need of Respite

In Need of Respite

Ooh, it’s been a doozy of a day, Fabbies!  You know what that calls for… wide open skies and azure seas.

To COCO

There’s not one…not two…but THREE new group gifts at COCO today.  Purveyors of excellent wardrobe staples, I’ve always been a big fan.  One of the three is this lovely green dress, replete with little bows on the shoulders (which can be removed!).  The other two gifts are just as lovely – a pair of shorts and a cute tank top.  The COCO group is free to join, and there’s a massive amount of high quality gifts to be had.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

And Last Few Days…

The FLF Birthday Bash is wrapping up soon (Sept 2nd) so make sure you visit before it all comes to a close.  I had had haaaad to have these super cool platforms from Mug.  They have little fishies swimming around in them!  There’s also a static version if you feel like reducing lag a bit – but man, the swimming fish! As always with Mug items, you’ll find all the sizes in the HUD.  So cool!  They’re just 50L!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Reborn
  • Kupra

I need to unwind.  Phew.

When You Need A Banana Kitten Purse in Your Life…

Coming Soon

Fun at the FLF Birthday Bash!

Aline and Allison have been covering the Fifty Linden Fridays Birthday Bash extensively this month! I am showing you a few things from my top three designer booths I found at the event that I absolutely LOVED. I am featuring free and 50L finds from Jian, Lybra, and Wasabi from the FLF Birthday Bash today.

Jian

First off, let’s talk about all the awesome items available from Jian for this event! They deserve an award for the cutest animal-themed items at the FLF Birthday Bash.

  • The cute kittens crawling up my legs are the free gift. Simply join the free Fifty Linden Fridays group to get these! You can click them to change the breed/look of the cats under the textures menu. I picked these two breeds, and I thought they were so cute together. Wearing these little guys has resulted in me getting some interesting comments from strangers… I love them! The free gift also includes a cat that sleeps on your head.
  • Secondly, let’s talk about the kitten purse. It’s a bag shaped like a banana with an adorable kitten inside it! Honestly, how can you resist? You get a full fatpack for only 50L at the event. It includes wearable bags with kittens in them for your right and left shoulders, as well as rezzable versions of the kitties in the banana purse and rezzable versions of the bag without a cat in it. They are precious and cute, truly. ❤

Lybra

Lybra has some awesome offerings at the FLF Birthday Bash. They are selling 4 mini-packs of shoes for only 50L per pack. I have been loving the shoe designs Lybra has been releasing. They are very detailed and unique, and on sale for an excellent price too! I am wearing one of the 50L mini-packs right now, called the “Morgan” shoes. Each 50L mini-pack includes a colour hud of white, black, pink and red colours. You can colour the top and bottom of this pair of shoes to different colours, and the pack includes 3 metal options for the heart pendant connected to the laces.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Erika
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Lybra is also offering a white and pink patterned version of Morgan as their free event gift for the FLF Birthday Bash. Those ones have little bunnies on the bottoms. See the vendor photo below as a preview and make sure you pick up this free texture of the Morgan shoes while you are at the event. Take a look at the other 3 mini-packs Lybra has on sale for 50L too- they are all amazing!

Wasabi

I am also wearing another 50L sale item from Wasabi. This was a past sale item I believe, so check if you have it already. I had missed it in the past, so I picked it up this time around! I love when I get a second chance. 😉 This hairstyle is called “Sunday”. It’s a style of braided pigtails, so what’s not to love? The 50L deal includes a full “absolute” pack of hair with 3 extensive colour huds, and there is a styling hud included as well. You can turn the accessories (the hair clips) on or off.

Make sure you check out Aline’s post here which shows the new hair Wasabi is selling for only 50L at the event.

Everything from this year’s FLF Birthday Bash ends so soon on September 2nd! So rush over there now and get what you want before it all goes away. I have linked the past FabFree coverage of the FLF Birthday Bash below for your convenience. Make sure you check out these great posts and get the goods before it’s too late!

Have fun at the Bash, FabFree!

Are We Out of the Woods?

Are We Out of the Woods

Just a little walk through nature today, FabFree. Wearing cute (free and sale) things, of course!

Spicy

Wasabi has been killing it with their new releases and sale offerings lately. They’ve long been one of the top names that pops into my head when I need to not be bald and I’m loving everything that they’ve been offering. The hair I’m wearing here is what Wasabi has out for today’s Fifty Linden Friday. It’s a super cute hat and pigtails that make me want to go run errands or be one with nature or something. I was really impressed with all the customization options too, besides loads of hair colors you also can change 3 parts of the hat and the hair ties to so many different colors. There’s a lot of value here for only 50L!

Daydream

The Bold Llama is always the obvious choice for cute and sassy tank tops. Nice textures and fun sayings? Yes, please. This one is really great because it’s the new free gift for our very own FabFree group. The FabFree group is always free to join so you just need to head on over to The Bold Llama and it’s yours for nothing at all. There are a LOT of sizes included too, specifically:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Fitmesh sizes XS-XL

One Last Thing

I love exploring the locations that designers create at their mainstores, and the one I’m at today is Wasabi. Head down the hill and there’s a whole gorgeous area to wander. I’m not sure what makes it so magical. Is it the lights in the trees? The beautiful scenery? The proximity to great hair? There’s no way of knowing, but it’s an excellent place to enjoy. ❤

Peace Out Peeps

Bold llama Namaste Bitches_001

Who would have thought that one day the word “bitches” would come to be used as a term of endearment? Certainly not I. So I used my brother’s advice and performed a GTS (google that s_ _ t) to learn more about this.

According to Urban Dictionary “bitch is one of the most versatile words in the English language; it is used to express a multitude of emotions; anger, anticipation, despair, endearment, envy, excitement, fear, horror, joy, shock, surprise, warning; all achieved by one’s enunciation and intonation.” It’s all in HOW you say it, such as:

Endearment: Hey bitch!
Joy: Oh my god, bitch!
Anticipation: Bitch, guess what?

Get Thyself to Twelve!

Twelve is winding down. There are $12L offers at most booths. The Bold Llama T-shirt Company, one of our Fabulous Designers, has this fun tank top, Namaste Bitches, out as the $12L offer. All of the tanks are fun and you have to love them! Mikki McLain is the owner and creator of The Bold Llama and she never seems to run out of fun, witty sayings to adorn the tank tops.

Sizes

  • Classic Mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I paired my tank with a great skirt I won on a Lucky Board at Pink Cream Pie. The Mariah Skirt has a perfect fit that hugs your curves. (I love hugs!). This one is the pansy color and it’s so pretty. Sizes included are Freya, Maitreya, and Legacy. The Pink Cream Pie group costs $314 to join and you get all of these benefits:

• Monthly Group Gifts! (since 2016!)
• L$100 Monthly Credit
• 10% Store Credit on Purchases

Happy Monday!

Personal Pool Party

Personal Pool Party

Pool party!  How lovely would it be to have a little heart-shaped pool one could laze about in whenever one wanted?  I’d happily sit on the edge, trailing my fingers into cool water on warm days, and dreaming of all sorts of beauteous and salacious things!

Back to FLF

I’m back at it with the Fifty Linden Fridays Birthday Bash.  There’s so much to be had and show that I’m happily very slowly sorting through my acquisitions.  Today I’m wearing a mix of free and paid items.  The free items can be acquired by joining the FLF group for free and clicking on the cacti at each booth.  Every other lovely item at the event is just 50L, so there’s plenty of fun to be had.  Here’s what I’m wearing today:

  • FREE dress by Paper + Antler sized for Ebody, Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy, Legacy Perky
  • 50L Hair by Wasabi
  • 50L Glasses by The Horror!

The FLF Birthday Bash runs until September 2nd, so you’ve still got plenty of time!

Pool Party

There’s a new group gift at Astralia!  This sweet little pool is so adorable, I just had to have it.  It comes with an HUD to change up the colour on every part of the pool so it can blend in (or stand out) in your garden.  It comes with both PG and Adult animations.  To get yours, simply join the Astralia group for 149L and click on the vendor in the group gift area.  Quite lovely indeed!

Make a splash!

The Girl In The Dress

The Girl In The Dress

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Belle Epoque‘s Summer Hunt is still going on!

Listen, you know I don’t hunt. But the prizes are soooo pretty and I knew they’d be flawless because, well, it’s Belle Epoque. I looked at the hunt key and thought, “gosh I’d really love to photograph that gorgeous teal gown,” I turned a single corner in the store, picked up a single cute little kitty statue, and…I got the very gown that I had coveted! Friends, believe me when I tell you that I stopped hunting immediately and ran gleefully home with my bounty. True story.

Anyway, the prizes are 10L each, you’re looking for a little cat, there’s a hunt key when you first walk in so you can see aaaaaaaall the prizes, and the whole thing lasts till August 31st.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Hit Me With Your Best ShotGames face on. My cute outfit made me wanna do some aerobics but I ended up at the basketball court instead. Did you see that shot? Nothing but net!

Six Years

There are so many anniversaries going on. Pink Cream Pie is celebrating their sixth anniversary. This group gives out group gifts monthly and typically 100L of store credit to group members monthly as well, but in celebration of 6 years it’s been raised to 600L this month! Whaaaat! Very exciting. Yes, the Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join but there are monthly group gifts, previous group gifts stay available, monthly group credit, and a whole bunch of fast moving lucky boards for the group as well. Oh but I haven’t talked about the thing I’m actually wearing yet. My top is called Amelia and it is the July Pink Cream Pie group gift. Maybe it’s just me but this fun little crop top, complete with a HUD full of totally 80s textures, made me want to hit the gym immediately. It also includes sizes for:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Eight Years

Yes, another anniversary. Addams is celebrating eight years of fashion. There’s lots of sales and exclusives in the store, and when I popped over to have a look I saw these leggings that I’m wearing among the group gifts! I don’t think they’re new, but they also weren’t already in my inventory so I really don’t know? Informative blogging! Regardless, the Zury leggings with the great waist band can be yours as a group gift from Addams. The Addams group is 19L to join. It’s a full fatpack including a HUD brimming with colors and these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG
  • Slink O
  • Venus

7-2-2022 Wasabi FLF Sweet Willow FF gift_001 (1)

Happy, Happy Birthday to America & Canada! What better way is there than to send some time at the seashore? Well we could add some bbq and cold drinks to it to make it perfect! So yeah, it is definitely swimsuit season. And I found the perfect hairstyle to go with my new beach wear.

Sweetness from Sweet Willows

The Fabulously Free group gets so spoiled by Willow of Sweet Willows. She regularly sets out great gifts for our group and also gives us a 50% discount on all vendors. So activate your FabFree tag and pop into her store.

Today I’m showing off one of the latest gifts – the Denim Heart Swimsuit. This is perfect for someone who wants to be more “covered up”. The attached skirt is a nice touch and gives it a retro vibe. Included is a hud with 18 different colors/textures. Several of the textures have this mermaidy texture that I adore. This one has some of my favorite colors, so score!  The FabFree group is always FREE to join!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis,Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique.

Beachy Hair

Wasabi offers a new style for Fifty Linden Friday. It’s the Seaside FLF edition and it’s super cute with the bun held by a scrunchie. Your hair will be off your neck making you feel a lot cooler. Included in the package are 3 color huds: Color, Roots, and Variety. Each hud has a tab to change the scrunchie texture too. This is a great deal if you’re looking for a summery hair style. Note: The item was style out for the FLF price of $50L as of this post. I can’t guarantee how long it will be available.

I’m ready for my beach time. How are you?
