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!

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.

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!

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!

Decorating Therapy

Caroline's Cottage

Hey, FabFree! I was down for a bit of decorating therapy tonight. Yes, usually I am one to indulge in shopping therapy but I just felt like a bit of building, decor-ing and decorating. I pulled out my lovely new modern wooden cottage with these lovely huge glass windows and went ham!  This was my final creation, and it includes some cheap gacha and hunt items, plus a couple free gifts. 

Take a Seat 

On the outside of my cottage, I am showing off items from the Rustic Bench Gacha which you can play at Noveny. The gacha currently costs 25L per pull to play and you can collect the benches in a number of colours and options with or without blankets and pillow. They benches look super cozy and I just want to go sit on them and enjoy the peace of my cottage backyard. The ultra rare includes a colour change hud to change the bench and blanket to a number of colours. The gacha is available to play at the Noveny mainstore this month only.

Caroline's Cottage II

Subscriber Gifts!

More freebies shown in my post today come from the free subscriber at Noveny. Just walk past the group gifts section at the entrance, and you will see a subscriber board. Slap it and you will receive the LOVE garden sculpture with vines growing on it for free. This freebie is shown in front of one of the wooden rustic benches in my collage above. You should also receive the free beautiful, transparent star lights which I have hanging from the bedroom ceiling in my cottage when you hit the subscriber board. 

I have also put up some seashell paintings from [QE Home] at the front of my cottage. I got these from the Dog Days of Summer hunt. I previously blogged other items on the hunt here. You can pick up these paintings for 25 Linden on the hunt at Short Leash until August 31st.

Keep That Flame Going!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m still camping out at the beach even though the summer days are dwindling just like my camp fire. Let’s keep the flame going and enjoy these summer holidays until the last possible moment! I also have a bunch of free gift cards and gifts to share today, as well as news of an amazing gacha sale.

500L + 500L

If you ever want to look magical, sparkly and colourful, LuluB is the store for you. I managed to get into the Fifty Linden Friday Birthday Bash last night, and I picked up the free 500L giftcard from LuluB’s booth. Make sure you add the card after you get it, click it and add it to your credit balance right away. LuluB is so generous with gift cards and gifts, and I had to share this one. This card expires around the time the event ends, so I suggest your grab it and spend your credits at the LuluB mainstore ASAP. I’m wearing a few things right now from the creator that could be purchased including:

  • A shine aura in a golden shine, which you can purchase in other colours as well or as a fatpack. LuluB‘s auras are simply incredible and soooo shiny. I love them.
  • The beautiful Ava eyes, which come in 10 glittering colours. LuluB‘s eyes are amazing and so unique. The eyes come in BOM and Omega.

For a limited time- today only- you could also top up your 500L credit at LuluB by joining their group for 150 Linden. They currently have a 500L credit available to group members at their store but it goes away on August 15th. If you do this, your credit will be topped up to a whooping 1, 000 L! Go LuluB!

More Freeness @ Carol G

I blogged a bit ago that the Carol G Tattoo group was free to join, and I’m shocked to see that the group is still free today! I am not sure if it’s temporary anymore, but it’s fab and free, so I’m showing another one of their free gorgeous group gifts. This chest tattoo gift is just perfect- I love the floral mandala style.

Sizes Included

  • BOM
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Slink

A Gacha Sale @ MOoH!

The gacha sales have started, and MOoH! has all their gachas on sale for 30-50% off until the end of the month. MOoH! is simply a maze of gachas- there are well over 100 to play at the store! I hope to show more of these before the end of the month, but today I am showing their beach gacha which includes beach chairs, towels, other beach items, and a beachhouse and fireplace as the “rare” prizes. Go snatch these up before beach season is officially over. The beach gacha currently costs 25L per pull to play, marked at 50% off. Woohoo!

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!
