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?

Hey there Fabulouses! Today in my blog post I have some news from Rebel Gal!

Rebel Gal / Bold & Beauty is participating at The Shop & Hop event on The Gilded Sim and they have a free gift, and a sweet 25-50% off sale going on too!

  • GIFT – The gift that you can pick up at this location is the Fluffy Fox Sweater in Print 3 that you see me wearing.  It looks so warm and cozy, tucked under at the front, and longer in the back.  I’m wearing it on Maitreya, but it also comes in Belleza Freya & Isis sizes.

Autumn Surprise

FabFree: Autumn Surprise

Hey there Fabulouses!  Addams has an exciting limited time offer, and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it, so here we go!

HURRYYYYYYY!

At 11:09 AM SLT today, in the Addams inworld group (which has a 19L join fee), news was posted that for the next 24 hours only…

  • Group members can visit the mainstore and get a 300L store credit added to your account!!

Well that’s a nice surprise!!  Make sure you wear your group tag when you click the board just outside the entrance to the store, and spend that credit before three days is up, because it’s expires!  It’s a little stuffed full of group members, and shoppers right now, but I was able to get in after a few tries to the cam sim.  Both SLURLS are listed below.  Good luck!

What did I buy?

I had a little extra credit on file so I went ahead and picked up the Portia Open Back Blouse and Portia Suit Pants ;D.  The Portia Top was 250L regular priced, so if I were just picking that up with my credit, I’d still have 50L to spare.  You can pick something up for FREE if you like!

THANK YOU ADDAMS ♥ ♥ ♥

Snowfall Warning

FabFree: Snowfall Warning

Hey there FabFree! Just stopping by the blog real quick to share a couple of limited time offer tidbits with you, because… FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAY!

Running out of 50Ls…

Yes, it’s true, I spent many 50Ls today, and a couple of my favourites are items I’m wearing in this photo.  The P10 hairstyle by Barberyumyum is being offered in one colour pack which is their #3 (an assortment of red / browns).  I think this is so cute, it may have convinced me I need to go back and pick up the full priced blonde pack too.  There are 9 colours in the pack and two style options, all for 50L!
*barberyumyum*P10@FLF

Another item I really thought was fabulous for 50L is the Izzie’s Sheer Natural Lipgloss pack!  As you can see from the ad below, it’s compatible with a ton of different heads and there are five colours in three shades each.  BOM system layers are included too if you are playing around with that.

Sheer Natural Lipgloss (for FLF)

Updating in progress…

I had planned to tell you that the winter coat, bodysuit and boots I am wearing are part of a gacha set at the Lybra mainstore, but when I went to grab the store SLURL, I noticed that they were no longer there…  I contacted the designer and she told me not to worry, because it’s only gone temporarily on account that she is updating them for 5 bodies instead of just the Maitreya size it is offered in.  So…  check back for that set at Lybra a little closer to Christmas, and who knows what else will be offered in new sizes too!

She’s come undone

FabFree: She's come undone

Hey there Fabulouses!  🎵 It was tooo laaaaattttte, I’ve come undone… 🎵 I am photographing this dress from the back, not because the front isn’t super adorable, but because I LOVE the undone buttons at the neck.

Bowtiful and free!

You can pick the Jocelyn Dress in Teal as a free group gift at Masoom, along with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the belt and buttons. This group will set you back 100L, but it’s worth the fee with the wall of gifts available!

The Rarest Bloom

The Rarest Bloom

The most rare of flowers is not the one that is expensive, or impossible to find, but the one that you feel special receiving, or the one that you treat yourself to.  I am all about Lavender – piles of it stretching off into the distance in fields, or sweet smelling under my pillow.  For today though, I am draped in electric blue and ready for adventure!

Anti-Valentine

Safira is having a hunt!  There are all sorts of fun goodies to pick up, all priced at just 15L each.  There are deep red lovely Valentine gifts, as well as black versions for those who are feeling averse to the holiday of love.  I grabbed item number one of the Anti-Valentine variety.  The Carla outfit comes in two parts – the really cute skirt and super sexy top, and there’s also a checkered version if you’re feeling a bit sporty.  So awesome, right?  Hurry over to Safira – the hunt runs until February 15th, check out all the prizes below!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Queen of All You’ve Seen

I’ve topped off my look with this exuberant flower crown by Yokai that I got for absolutely FREE over at the Gacha Garden.  There are so many gifts to pick up, I’m sure you’ll find something else you fancy too!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group at the landing point and click on the bajillion boxes!

What’s your favourite flower?

The Sacred in the Ordinary

The Sacred in the Ordinary

I’m creeping around the woods again, and I promise I’m not doing too much witchery this Saturday evening.  I mean, only the regular every day kind of magic that involves bonfires in the night and the crunch of leaves underfoot.  It’s always important to find the sacred in the ordinary!

The Seasons Story

Fall is my favourite season – sparkling with golden hues and delicious wonders.  The Seasons Story agrees with me, because as I mentioned the other day, all the creators (who are actually celebrating the event’s anniversary) have placed a myriad of gifts out for one and all!  Just join their free group, and you’ll gain access to oh so many goodies.  Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • Destiny Dress by MasKara (Sized for Freya and Maitreya)
  • Leaf Earrings by Pure Poison
  • Leaf with heart cutout by Sari-Sari
  • Lipstick by Amara Beauty (with appliers for Catwa & Lelutka)

Head over to The Seasons Story to pick up all your goodies – the event closes on October 31st!
