This One’s For the Bloggers

Flames of Love

To the Photographers and Bloggers!

It’s about time I showed some love to all the amazing bloggers and photographers out there. You know you all inspire me to do better… I just love browsing Flickr and checking out everyone’s pictures! I have three cute freebies today for all the bloggers and photographers of SL to enjoy.

Posin’

I have been working on setting up a small photo studio for myself so I was looking for the perfect pose stand. I was tearing my hair out trying to find the perfect one! I found a great little pose stand from Shanti tucked away in my inventory. This stand is free, and you will find it at the front of their store on the wall cubby in a small little box. No group is needed for this little freebie. The pose stand is no copy, so be careful not to lose it! Make sure to rezz the gift on a sandbox or on your land. Once you have it opened, just rezz it at your place, click “edit”, and then “drag” animations into the contents menu of the pose stand. I was able to add ALOT of my poses to it, so this is going to be very useful for my blogging ventures! I used the Shanti pose stand to create the photographs in my post today in my new studio.

Some of the poses I loaded up into the stand are from an lar [poses]. They have many freebies on their Marketplace. I have been known from time-to-time to spread the news of these freebies to any blogger friends I meet. They are so great! The pose I am wearing today is from the free Ellie Series. FabFree coverage of more free poses from an lar [poses], which are all still available HERE, can be found in the following posts by my fellow bloggers and myself (check our credits to see where the poses come from):

The “Flames of Love” Backdrop

Finally, the backdrop behind me is another freebie at Shanti. Just head to the front of the store and pick it up in the little yellow bag. No group join is required for this one! It’s so pretty! It has a glowing hear in the background with lovely purple patterns and shine. Radiant!

Have fun, FabFree!

Pride Never Stops

6-23-22 Pride things_002 edited

The end of June is nigh upon us. Pride never stops; it shouldn’t. It’s a choice you can make to support the LGBTQ+ community and remember the history of struggles to obtain basic human rights. My support comes naturally as I have long-time friends and family who are LGBTQ+. You’ve probably seen several posts about Pride @ Home and other events.

To help you show support there are a number of Fabulous designers who donated gifts for the Pride @ Home SL celebration. All of the gifts are Free but you need to hurry because the event ends on June 30th. Madame Aline, the FabFree boss lady, featured some of the event gifts here.

Showing Those Rainbow Colors

Ladies, how can you NOT love these items? I do love sparkly things! And the bright colors make me smile. I threw this look together with several gift items. Do I look a tad too festive to anyone? No way, never ever! Let’s get to it.

My delightful bodysuit is a Free SL19B gift from PrettyDeceased. It’s the Pride edition and it is so pretty & festive! It’s got the little side skirt attached. It also comes with starfish to cover up the boobies.

I didn’t wear the starfish because I wanted to add the crown and breast plate I picked up a couple of weekends ago from Synnergy.  I think the pieces go together quite nicely.

Bodysuit Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

I rounded out my outfit with a group gift from StephaneL – the kick butt Mara Love Pride Shoes. Mara is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, & SLink. The StephaneL group has a $15L join fee. There are many gifts for group members. There is also a $500L gift card up for group members. If you’re interested check it out this weekend because I don’t know how long the card will be available.

If you haven’t made it to SL19B Shop & Hop or Pride at Home yet it’s time to get going!

Hop to it now!

xoxo,

Time for Flowers

FTH3 Telsiope/Reina Photo

It’s that time of year. Spring has sprung and summer is near. The beautiful colors of spring flowers never fails to brighten my days. Keeping them alive in the summer heat is another matter but we’ll discuss it later when I’m relaxing on the beach one day.

One of the SL lessons I learned early on is that hunts are an economical way to add to your SL closet (and garage, shed, dressers, etc).  Plus you discover new designers and places. When I saw the Flower’s Time Hunt 3 was starting up I just knew there would be wonderful prizes (click the link for hints & prize pics). It ends on May 31st. As I have posted in the past this is another hunt to benefit the Harambee Gwassi Project so all hunt items cost a whopping $3L. It’s a really small price to pay for the goodies you can find.

Spring Score!! \0/

When I started writing posts for our FREE to join Fabulously Free in SL group I was introduced to Telsiope’s Couture. Now I regularly visit the shop to check out new offers. I have never been disappointed with anything from the shop and commend the owners/designers for participating in fundraising hunts.

Lupi is her name and she is gorgeous! Doesn’t it scream spring? The texture is perfect for the season. Nice touches are the halter type spaghetti straps and the cut outs at the waist making it a flattering fit. Included is a hud with 16 different colors/textures so you can go crazy playing with it.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • SLink HG & Physique

Posing Pretty

Also participating in the Flower’s Time Hunt 3 is Reina Photography. I adore this pose and backdrop. You can have scoop this up for $3L It’s an easy find. Come on, go grab it; you know you need this one.

Till the next time Fabbies!

Siren Song

Siren Song

Heyya FabFam! Well… I held out as long as I could, but the beach was calling me. Then I saw these great prizes for the High Tides and Good Vibes Hunt… I just couldn’t resist any longer. I’m off to the beach to listen to the call of the water and waves.

Ari – Pari, as always, has given us a knock out prizes for the Hunt with this sweet itty bitty bikini. This is the Tamara Bikini and you can grab it for just 1L and a little searching. Trust the hint, it will lead you straight to the little sea shell you’re looking for. The bikini comes with a HUD for ten colors to choose from and you can color the top and bottoms separately.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My rocky perch can also be found on the Hight Tides and Good Vibes Hunt. “Her Vibe” is a beautifully textured stand of rocks with three poses loaded in by Something New. I picked the beach to stand them up on but they would be equally at home in the deserts or rocky mountain sides. The poses are very well made and can be adjusted if needed. While you need to hunt the shell down to get this prize it will cost 25L. A bit more but it’s well worth the price.

Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!

Gargoyle Queen

gargoyle_003

Hey fabbies,

I’ve been delving into the world of geneology in my real life.  Fascinating stuff, really.  Especially for a girl who was adopted and never knew her heritage growing up.  Turns out I am mostly British, Irish and Scottish (DNA), which may explain my love of castles.  Speaking of castles, check out my new buddy.  He may look scary but he is really just one of those gargoyles from Notre Dame voiced by Jason Alexander (You know, George from Seinfeld).  He says “Ooh La La“.  Still, you don’t meet a guy like him every day.

Ok for reals, this is another of those amazing pose props from Le Poppycock (75L a play Nextup!).  I tell ya’ she has got some mighty fun stuff.

My dress is a group gift from UNA that comes in a fatpack of colors as a free group gift.  The group there is 50L to join but she has a plethora of goodies for you on the wall for your small join fee.  This dress fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Ebody

Ah well, my eyes are mad at me for staring at this screen for far too long today, so I suppose it is time to come down from my belltower and post this.

Weekend on the French Riviera

french_007
Heyo Fabbies and happy weekend!  Or should I say Salut!  Ca va?

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring weekend.  I am out here just sipping some wine on the French Riviera where the Bohemian style is all the rage right now.  In fact, it is all the rage throughout Europe!  Just colors and frills and fun sexy outfits!  I think with all the war and pandemic and everything else, the mood of peace and love so exemplified by the Hippies back in the 60’s and since then is on everyone’s mind.  Mind?  I don’t mind, it’s my preferred style, bohemian gal that I am!  So when I saw the Saturday Sale and Belle Epoque, well, I just had to run down and grab it.  I want to be in style while I sip my wine like a fashionista!

The Saturday Sale

This is a bit time sensitive, so if you love this outfit and want to see all the colors it comes in for only 75L per color, you will need to hit Belle Epoque today.  I’m not sure how long they keep their Saturday Sales up for.  This outfit fits Maitreya and Legacy only but gosh all the colors are stunning.  I had a difficult time trying to choose and finally went with my signature pink.  I can’t go wrong with pink… ever.  lol

No group is needed to get the sale price, so run on over and style up!  I’m *so* glad I saw this and grabbed it.  I am absolutely in love!

My table, chair and wine (and pose) are another 75L Nextup from Le Poppycock.  I love that I can wear the props and they pose me and so I have no need to rez, so I can use them anyplace (like I did!  lol)!

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.  😉
