Shout it from the Rooftops

Shout it from the Rooftops

FabFree!  It’s time to mix colours, be crazy, be different, be sexy, and be happy!  Let’s just change our narrative now, forget the doom and gloom and turn it all upside down and make the world a better place with love, positivity and colour.  That doesn’t mean throw caution and safety the wind (just sayin), but let’s turn all our frowns upside down and scream happy affirmations from the rooftops.  Why not?

She’s a Magnoliac!

In order to inject some colour and madness, I always think a new dress does wonders.  The latest group gift at Magnoliac has loads of pretty colours in the HUD and will suit just swimmingly.  To get your own (as well as the matching choker, which can be worn and coloured separately) just join the Magnoliac group for 75L.  There are several other group gifts out too, making this group join quite worth it!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

In and Out

In and Out

My absolute favourite thing to do in SL is to play dress-up.  I’m sure you may have noticed by now.  I like how a few clicks can totally change up your look.  Today I’m vacillating between going out into the world, or staying in nice and cozy.  I came up with two looks – the one above and one you’ll find lower down, so you can decide which route I should take!

Feeling Lucky

There are three new lucky chair prizes at Lybra right now!  Both tops in my photos come from this excellent source of sexy-classy clothing.  Their free group grants you access to these three chairs.  You may win the cute cropped sweater above, or the awesome “ciao” t-shirt below… or even a set of really cozy socks that haven’t made their way into my inventory quite yet (but they will!).  Just hang out by the lucky chairs until your letter comes up.  Don’t forget to grab the wide array of free group gifts while you’re there too – as well as the FabFree group gift!

Dress Up, Show Up

Dress Up, Show Up

There are days when you just have to put on your best gown and show off.  I think that dressing up and showing up is half of the importance in being alive.  Today, I’m dressing up and showing up in a gorgeous pile of freebies that I’m sure will have you ready to waltz out the door into some gorgeous Second Life locations.

Rowne, Rowne, Rowne your Boat

Oh gosh, what a horrible subtitle.  I’m so sorry, I couldn’t help it!  Rowne have just moved to a new location, and I went to peek around their store to see what was going on.  They’re having a massive sale right now, but what really got me excited was their pile of free group gifts.  We’ve shown you some on the blog in the past, but it’s always nice to see something new or be reminded of some old goodies that you may not have had the chance to pick up before.  This lovely long gown is completely free when you join the Rowne group.  It has a little peekaboo effect in a sensitive location, but I think it all adds to the charm.  I also picked up the heels there for free, though we have shown you them on the blog in the past HERE.  There are loads of beautiful, free gifts, go grab them!

I Think I’m in Love

I Think I'm in Love

Are you guys sick and tired of the hearts yet?  You’d better not be, because there are soooo many adorable gifts out there right now with a Valentine spin, and I just can help myself.  My thought is though, that you get a bit of black here too just in case you are tired of all the sweetness.

Oh, Evie!

Evie has just moved to a new location, and to celebrate they’re getting up to all sorts of madness over there.  I joined their group for free and gained access to all their past group gifts (even stuff from Shop & Hop – that Love showed us back in December –  and SL16B from the past) and I put together a pretty fun outfit with it all.  The top, shorts, crown, and pillow are all free finds at Evie.  You might even want to stalk their lucky boards while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy (Top Only)

What kind of cuteness will you put together at Evie?

Pepper it With Hearts!

Pepper it With Hearts!

Did I not tell you guys that I’d be peppering myself with hearts for the foreseeable future?  I regret nothing, my friends.  Not a single little heart do I regret!

I Heart You

Safira has updated their  maaaaaaaasiiiiveee wall of gifts yet again, this time with this cute little miniskirt.  If you haven’t joined their group yet, it’s super worth the 50L join fee, because you get access to a ridiculous amount of awesome gifts.  You’ll find this one down near the bottom of the wall!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Lace Love

My little lace choker is the latest from COCO.  Another great group to join, since they also love to spoil group members with their huge wall of gifts!  The COCO group is free to join, and this choker comes in both black and white versions.

Go on, you know you want to!

Feeling the Love

Feeling the Love

Well won’t you just take a peek at me, Fab Free!  I’m covered in hearts again, and it’s making me super happy!  You know that V-Day is on it’s way, and that means hearts will pepper just about anything you find.  I do love a good lovefest, don’t you?

Sowing the Seeds

The latest group gift at Apple Blossom & Seeds is this cute little dress that has sweet little cutouts and ties up the side.  Adorable for a date night, if you ask me!  To get it, just join the Apple Blossom & Seeds group for free, then click on the gift on the back of the wall behind the counter.  There are loads of other gifts to grab while you’re at it, so make sure you do so!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Freya

Tall Boots for Tall Ambitions

The boots I’m wearing are also a new gift which only cost me 1L at La Perla.  No group to join here, just head upstairs to the group gift area and you’ll find a bunch of dollarbies, including the newest gift, which I’ve got on.  These boots are sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus.

Are you loving all the love, Fab Free?

FabFree: Writers Block

Hey there Fabulouses!  Today I bring you a little bit of personal news regarding my plans for the new year, the future of Fabulously Free in SL… and of course information on how to pick up this two piece outfit for FREE, because I couldn’t come empty handed!

Let’s start with the outfit (mostly because I am procrastinating sharing my news!)

At Mangula, there is a whole wall full of FREE lucky board prizes, and may of them have been shown here on FabFree before, but you have to keep going back to see the new additions!  I popped in last night and found the Keyla Set that includes the ripped jeans and sweater and voila, my “L” came up!  You are not required to join the group to participate in the lucky boards but there are some nice group gifts with a free group join just beside the luckies too if you are interested in grabbing those.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Get on with it, Love

Ok! Here’s my news…

After much thought and almost 9 years with Fabulously Free in SL, I am announcing that I am retiring from running, and blogging for the organization.  I am stepping down as leader, still with much love for FabFree, for no other reason than after nearly a decade… I’m tired.  For the benefit of FabFree and my sanity (lol), the time has come to pass the torch to a new leader who is fresh, and inspired and eager!

Aline Passiflora has been a dedicated and enthusiastic team member for over two years now, entertaining you with her quick witted writing skills and keen eye for fashionable freebies!  She will be taking on the lead role here at FabFree, and I am very confident that she will do amazing things with it!

What’s next for Love?  I am not entirely sure, but I do know that I will continue posting the photos I so love to make on my flickr feed and will post credits to my personal SLovesadventures Blog.  I might clean my overflowing inventory or explore different areas of interest in Second Life.  Who knows what kind of trouble I might get into with all of this free time.  I can’t wait to find out!

In closing, I just want to thank you all for your readership and support over the years that I have been with this wonderful organization and community.  I am also very thankful for the friendships I have made over the years here with our very hard working writers (past and present), and readers and designers.

Now I’m just getting babbley…  I’m so excited to see what is in store for Fabulously Free in SL, and for myself with these changes.

ps.  Be patient with Aline while she gets things organized in a way that works for her!

*squishy hugs, best wishes, huge thanks and love for all*

Love Trill

To Stay in or Not to Stay In

To Stay in or Not to Stay In...

New Year’s Eve is coming real quick, and I am torn between a night on the town and a quiet night at home.   Right now a night at home is winning… how about for you?

More from Safira!

Geez louise, Safira has been spoiling group members this month!  They just came out with yet another gift, which is this gorgeous oversized sweater and matching knee highs.  The HUD comes in a dizzying array of hues, so you can customize your look to the nth degree.  There’s also the option to go plain, or the heart-covered version I’ve got on.  Good luck trying to decide!  To get your own, join the Safira group for 50L and head to the group gift area that is teeming with something that looks like a bajillion gifts!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Oh, so Yummy!

Yummy is one of my fave jewelry designers, and they’re treating everyone to a free gift right now!  My sparkly 2020 tiara and animated noisemaker are getting me in the spirit for midnight revelry.  No group join required here, just head over to Yummy and click on the gift box!  It comes in both gold and black versions.  Perfect!

What are YOU doing New Year’s Eve?
