My Autumn Gallery

My Autumn Gallery

Welcome To The Fall Showing

Fall is my favourite decorating season. I put up a little autumn gallery made up of art I picked up at the Fall Festival, a fall-themed event that is running until October 1st at Malus Park. I have a couple of 50L pieces and a free painting to show you from this event, so check out the following designer’s booths to get these fall art pieces for a fabulous price!

  • The painting with the woman and the fall leaves is a free gift from Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery.
  • The “Pumpkin Season” framed artwork is 50L from Cotton Blossom Artwork.
  • The “Fall is my Favorite Color” framed poster is also 50L, and you will also find this art work in Cotton Blossom Artwork’s booth.

On Me

  • My outfit is a free lucky board prize at Shanti. No group join is required to play the boards. This prize is called the “Upside Down Bohemian Outfit”. This is a Stranger Things reference for all the fans of the popular supernatural 80’s-era Netflix series. The set includes a top and skirt which can be worn separately. The outfit is textured with a black and white pattern which looks perfect for Halloween coming up! It fits Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody Classic, Lara, Physique, Legacy, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The choker and earrings I am wearing are from The Arcade, and they are 50L per play from Heartsdale Jewellery. You can see a key below of all the pretty prizes available. There are 12 pieces of jewelry from this designer to collect at the September round of The Arcade, which is available to play until September 30th. If you need more information about how The Arcade works, please read Aline’s recent post here which explains it much better than I can!

Just a Bit of Fun

Just a Bit of Fun

Oh, look the pink-loving side of me has come out to play again!  It’s time to get girly, feel cute and win a bunch of prizes… It’s time for The Arcade!

Yum

When the gacha ban came into effect just over a year ago, I was pretty bummed.  I loved playing the machines and getting fun prizes.  I understand that I played with considerable restraint (1 or 2 pulls per machine for the most part), and for some it became a bit of a problem.  So, I get it.  But… I missed that fun.  I’m glad that The Arcade found a way to continue that fun while making the process a bit more transparent.  To play these machines, just attach the HUD and connect to any machine at the event, and you’ll see which items are up for grab next, so you can decide if it’s for you or not.  Here’s what I played for and won:

  • 75L top and skirt by NINI Planet sized for Maitreya, Legacy & eBody
  • 75L Margarita by ChicChica
  • 50L Bracelet by Schelm (it says “Ti Amo” on it… so good)

You can peep all the lovely offerings at the official Arcade website HERE, and you’ve got until September 30th to visit!

Weekend Mode Activated

Ok, I’ve officially given up for the week!  All the stress of nine to five is behind me, and I’ve fooled the masses into thinking I’m drinking a grown up beverage, but I just got it for the candy.  Mwahaha!  I’m so devious.  Let’s get a weekend-ready dress, shall we?

Wait, What?

Ok, folks…. The Arcade is back, and you can get all the goodness of playing a Gacha, without any of the gambling!  Since gachas were banned back in August, people have been hemming and hawing over how to get the thrill of the gacha (I am a fan of a sweet outfit for a low price), but still let you make informed decisions on what you’re about to purchase.  The Arcade has come up with a new HUD system that tells you which items are up next in the queue, so you can either buy what’s next, see what the next few items down the line are, or just walk on and come back later when you can try and get the items you’d really like.  Full disclosure, I had an amazing time playing – and I didn’t spend as much as I used to back when Gacha was a game of chance.  Anywhos, I played the Ricielli gacha, and no matter what you pull you’re sure to end up with a really REALLY pretty dress like the one I got for just 75L.  It’s a win-win!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

You can check out all the information about how to play the new system HERE, and also take a look at the catalogue while you’re there to see what you want to grab.

What do you think of this new system?  Let me know in the comments!

Moving On

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree! I’m just on one of my last summer strolls before the season’s over. It’s coming to end and even if I’m sad about it, life must move on. Only 8 more months until next summer! 😉 In the meantime I will enjoy this picturesque landscape and the lovely winding river. 

Free Group & Gifts @ StephaneL

The lovely shoe store StephaneL is currently free to join. At one point they had a small fee, so I’d encourage all to pop over there and grab all the fab gifts while the group is still open. The great shoes and socks I am wearing are the S. T. Miranda shoes and they are just adorable. These are a free group gift. Woot woot!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya 
  • Belleza 
  • Slink

The Last Hours

Yeah, again it’s the last moments to grasp for those gachas! They will all be wiped on the 31st before the big night. This will be my last gacha post. The great hair is only 25L on a gacha at Wasabi! I love this style, it’s very cute. This pull I got comes in a host of lovely red shades. You can find this one in the little shack outside the store, and I think this sale was supposed to end but they are all still out so get over there while you can! All the hair gachas out there are 25L a pull but this is a very limited time offer. 

Candy Eyeshadow

My beautiful pink and blue eyeshadow is a free group gift from Pout! This was an older gift that was not yet featured on the blog, so I had to share. 

Sizes Included

  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • LAQ
  • BOM

And a Pose!

My post is also a gift at the low cost of 1 Linden. You can grab this cute gift at Luane’s World Bento Poses. It’s just on the wall for 1L, and it’s very cute pose. 

See you soon, FabFree!

The Gacha Clock is Ticking!

Coming Soon to Fab FreeHey FabFree! The gacha clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of days until we have no more gachas to play and they turn into pumpkins! I know I’ve been showing the gachas hardcore this month so I hope I’m not driving you crazy.  I say let’s show a few more!

25L Gachas @ Truth!

My favourite hair store of all time, TRUTH, has all their gachas out for 25L per pull! I’m not sure how long they will be out but what a steal for great hair. On the left hand side of my photo above, I am wearing the black and whites version from the Damaris gacha which comes in a hud of various black and white dip dyed colours. See the gacha key below for all the other pulls you can win! I am not currently wearing the little flower included with the hair, but you can add and detach it as you wish. 

TRUTH HAIR Gilda Damaris Key

The hair I’m fashioning in the right-hand picture is from the Kora/Kyra/Kera gacha at TRUTH. I am wearing Kora in red, but I love how you have the change of winning 3 great styles with this one. Every item in these gachas includes a colour hud, and there a few more machines to play too! I’m not sure when these will be taken away so if you want some cheap TRUTH gachas for 25L per pull, now is the time to go!

TRUTH HAIR Kora [Colours] Boxed

By the way, the cute poses I’m wearing in this post are free on the Marketplace! These are from the Anais Mini Pose Series by an lár [poses]. I often show their poses in my posts, and they are simply amazing for all the photo lovers out there!

Not just another flower in the garden

Not just another flower in the garden

Hey FabFree! I have two lovely things to show off tonight so let’s jump straight in!

First is another 10L special From Fable 6. My lovely necklace and earrings are from Grumble and you can have the set for just 10 little Lindens. Now I loved the “Garden Fantasy” jewelry set the moment I unpacked it but I didn’t have anything to wear it with. Or so I thought!

Then I stopped over at the last 😦 round of the Gacha Life event and there it was! The perfect dress to show off with my flower jewels! This is the “Betsy Dress” from Dore Papillon Boutique and you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag from Gacha Life. Of course the Gacha Life group is totally free to join! There are free gifts at most of the booths at Gacha Life so be sure to pop in.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass

And there ya have it! A complete look from two different events put together as if they were made for each other. I do love Second Life Shopping!

Your Highness

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree, I have a fun post tonight and I hope you enjoy it. Today I got pampered by some pink birdy friends at the beach, and I snapped some pics to remember the memory. It’s just another day in the life of Caroline!

Another Gift from FAGA!

My great hair is a dollarbie from FAGA, but this time you can find this gem on the Marketplace. Yet again, this a full pro pack that includes all colours and a style hud. This style is classic, and only costs 1L. You can’t get better than that. 

To Be Served

I am a lady who likes to be served, and these flamingos are doing the job right! Even though I’m not really in the mood for a margarita, I have to commend their efforts. These awesome flamingos come from a gacha at MOoH! and they are only 35L a pull at the current sale price until the end of August. 

To match all the pink, I also found some beautiful shoes at Tooty Fruity, which are their latest group gift for August. They are lovely, and the group costs 49 Linden to join. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Kupra

That’s it for now, FabFree!

Here Kitty, Kitty – Meow

Nerido Meow Overall Sat Sale 8/21/2021

I confess to being a cat lover. I grew up with many cats around and have a silly kitty these days. Like Aline, I am a lover of anything cat. My blanket covered kitty, Romper, (he wanted to keep napping) has to nap with me.

Meow, Meow

When I saw Nerido‘s offer for The Saturday Sale I had to scramble over to scoop it up! The Meow Overall is on sale for $75/color; there are a number of colors to choose from. For me, it’s usually pink. These overalls have a kitty face print on the bib, white paw prints on the right leg, and straps/belt with the word Meow & hearts. Great way to show kitty love!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Today’s hairstyle, Vita, is a gacha prize at Fabia. The gachas are set at $25/pull. Get em while they’re hot; it’s a great way to stock up on hair.

Feeling meowy today I also added these cute kitty ears headband I picked up as a gift from [t2p] a couple of weeks ago. It is sold in the store for $99 L – just in case you’re in the mood for more cat!

OOH LA LA

OOH LA LA

Ooh La La meaning from the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English. When you think that something or someone is surprising, unusual, or attractive. Today Jacx has 2 unusual offerings. A free outfit or shoes, you choose. And a nice perk for some Gacha items.

We’re Having A Heatwave

Could hear Marilyn singing that song, the minute I laid eyes on the Sweet Temptations Fiorella Bikini. So 1950s in ruffled goodness, with a 20 texture hud. Almost expected Bridget Bardot to come share the pool bed, where we lounge reading fashion magazines and chit chat. Here is how you get the freoutfit of your choice. Moonshine Allerhand is giving 300L store credit, (same as the price of the outfits.) Hit the subscriber board in any one of these 4 stores. Gaall, Vaxer, Sweet Temptations , Chic & Shoes. Next to the subscriber is a Free Credit Board. Then you choose what store you would like the credit at. There is a TP board handy to port between stores while you look over the goodies.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Yes, More Gachas!

I bet it feels like every post has something about gachas. Here is where the unusual comes in. Chez Moi is doing a gacha exchange program till August 30th. Box your no copy Chez Moi gachas, Label the box Gacha Exchange, your legacy name. Send the box to Nandas ChezMoi. And soon as possible the copy items are returned to you. It worked great, Jacx exchanged several of the items in the post. Each item was bought for 25L.

Chez Moi Yucca Camel Chair
Chez Moi Terra Couch

That’s a wrap for today. Till Next Time.

All the Gachas in the World!

Coming Soon

It’s my time to load up on gachas, FabFree. Afterall, I only have so long until they are gone. September 1st is the date when all gachas will be wiped off the grid, so here are some gachas to fulfill your cravings before the big day. 

Gachas Galore!

The cute little unicorn plushie I am holding is a gacha gift for members of the Candy Kitten VIP group. This group costs 400L to join, but the group includes countless gifts, gift cards, and lucky letter prizes. Recently, the store put out four sets of gachas as group gifts that include unicorn and cat plushies. Woohoo! This cute pink and white unicorn comes from the Sweet Unicorn gacha, and you get them all for no cost with the group tag. Candy Kitten also has a 300 L gift card set out for their members right now, so go grab that too if you’re in the group! The great boots I’m wearing are one of many great things you could get with the card. 

All the beautiful lights and lanterns behind me are from the lantern gacha at MOoH! This gacha costs only 25L per play, and it is currently 50% on their current gacha sale. You can read more about the sale in my post here. There are so many types of lights, lanterns and garden lights in this gacha! I just love it. 

Fabian

The other item on today’s list is this outfit, which temporarily costs 55 Linden at Evolve. I got the lovely red colour, but they also have it in green, cream and brown.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
