Fall Musings

Coming Soon

Can I Go Back?

Ah, September… the month of new beginnings and a new school year is almost upon us. It’s the first day back to school over here where I live! Sometimes I wish I could just go back to school and re-live my college years. Sure, school sucks sometimes and it’s a lot of hard work… but I loved walking around the University quad with a coffee in hand, venturing off to my next lecture and absorbing my mind in the world of higher education. In all honesty, I didn’t have many responsibilities back then besides dedicating myself to learning more about the world. I just loved learning, reading, and discussing ideas, so being in College/University was one of the best times in my life!

…Fast Forward to November

I am an odd one for wanting to go back to school, huh? Well, I am also a bit strange when it comes to my opinions about the seasons of the year. Despite loving the summer months and the time I get off every year, I have a stronger fondness for the Fall. Once September starts, everything becomes a blur with how crazy school and work always becomes! I am sure you can relate. However, I just love fall; it always makes me feel warm inside. Bring on pumpkin season! I am definitely one of those people who waits for pumpkin-spice lattes and Halloween in August. This sweater and skirt outfit I have on in the photo below reminds me of the month of November because it has poppies on it and it looks warm and comfy. This is my type of clothing style! I always prefer fall and winter clothes in both RL and SL, and I simply love this outfit for its fall vibes.

Coming Soon

Get to the point, Caroline!

Well, this has been a fun and poetic exploration of my views about life, higher learning, and the seasons. Now I have two amazing outfits, poses and shoes to show you in my post today, so let’s look at what I found to bring in the fall season!

Two Lovely Limited-Time Outfits

Ari-Pari is the clothing store I am featuring today, and they are currently in the middle of renovating their store. You will find the two gifts shown in my post today at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, which is right HERE. Ariana was so kind that she left out a group gift and a hunt prize from last August a wee bit longer for us, so that no one would miss out. The two lovely outfits shown in my post today are available for a limited period of time at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, a skybox that will be open until mid-September. They are only available for another week or two, so I suggest everyone go now to get them before these great gifts disappear for good.

First, the school uniform shown in the first picture is a 1L promo at the Ari- Pari Temporary Location.  The outfit includes a hud with 10 colour options to change the colour of the skirt and necktie. The base of this school uniform outfit is white. This dollarbie promo was a hunt prize for last month’s Back to School Hunt (which has now ended), but Ari-Pari is keeping this little gem out to grab for a couple more weeks into September due to the store closure in August. Now it only costs 1L and no hunting is required- just look for the PROMO sign and pay the vendor 1L to get the outfit for cheap!

Sizes Included (School Uniform)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Secondly, the pretty poppy-patterned sweater and black skirt with a belt shown in the second photo is the August group gift for group members of the Ari-Pari group. This gift is available for a limited-time. Go get it at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location while it’s still available! Note that there is a group join fee of 25L, but new limited-time monthly group gifts are regularly released for Ari-Pari group members. This outfit includes a colour-change hud for the sweater and the belt, which you can change to 4 different colour and pattern options. The black skirt can be worn with gold or silver metal belt options. 

Sizes Included (Poppy Outfit)

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

The Ari-Pari Temporary Location will be open until mid- September, and I expect these gifts will no longer be available after it closes so go ASAP to get these limited-time promos and gifts! There will be even more group gifts and goodies coming out later when the main store re-opens after renovations, so stay tuned for the upcoming store re-opening!

Two 5L deals from Pacagaia

I have a few more fab deals to share that make up the rest of my look in my welcome-to-fall post today.

  • The poses, coffee, and cell phone shown in both photos come from a great set of bento poses, which costs only 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace.
  • The great shoes are another item that only costs 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace. These shoes fit Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. These are a full fatpack, which includes a hud to change the colours of the shoe (the top and the base) to 25 different textures. They are fantastic! Shout out to FabFree reader Aurora for showing me these – I just love ’em. 🙂

Enjoy, FabFree!

Is Fall Here Yet?

090522 - Gifts at Uber - 01

My favorite season…

Autumn is definitely my most favorite season of all. I enjoy each one but I love fall so much! I chose some great gifts from the Uber 8th Anniversary that gave me fall vibes to share with you today. All of these gifts are FREE and can be located at each participating store location. First of all, if you’ve not already seen them be sure to read these other Uber Gift posts:

Now for what I’m wearing!

  • Let’s start with this adorable crop top. A little tiny for cool fall weather but its great when the days are still warm! This top is the gift from Osmia. It comes in the print that I’m wearing and fits Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Reborn.
  • These super comfy leggings are from ElvenElder. I love how they are so long that they cover part of the feet! They fit Legacy and Maitreya bodies and include a fatpack HUD that has 21 color/texture options!
  • What is fall without a candy apple?! MadPea releases some of the coolest stuff and this is their gift for Uber. It comes in 3 flavors and each one can be held in opposing hands. Hmmm…maybe I should have eaten two.

Time for a close-up…

  • These lovely earrings are from Heartsdale Jewellery. The included HUD allows you to change the dangling jewels between 12 unique choices. They are unrigged so can fit almost everyone! Unless you’re super tiny, then you might fall over from the weight.
  • Amara Beauty’s gift is the makeup. The lipstick and eyeshadow both 6 color choices and can be worn at 100% or 60% opacity. It is BOM for Lelutka Evo X.
  • Finally, my poses are also a gift from Heart Poses. There are 3 total, and keep in mind that in the picture I’m holding the candy apple that arm is affected by the included pose. All three poses from Heart Poses are static and bento. A pose stand is included as well.

Until next time!

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!
