Art Lover

I am a lover of art in both RL and SL. I’m hanging out in the studio with a nice, piping hot chai tea latte. Although I look like I’m ready to go to an art gallery opening with all the fashionable finds I am wearing today…

Uber! Style!

I have a whole load of free gifts from the Uber Anniversary to share this morning. This event is filled with fashionable free finds. To do the event, go to each store on the Uber gifts list that Aline made for us all. It can be accessed here. If you have the time, do send her a thank you for this because her hard work compiling this list made it so much easier for everyone to find the gifts. You can grab the free gifts until September 22nd. You only have a week left to get the goods!

Free gifts from the 8th Uber Anniversary I am showing today are:

  • A pack of BOM lipsticks for Lelutka EvoX at Glam Affair
  • Heels from Breathe that fit Lara, Legacy, Reborn, Kupra, Legacy and Slink
  • A tea chai latte at Andika, which can be worn or delivered to others through a dispenser
  • Earrings and a necklace from EarthStones Jewelry
  • Sunglasses from Deep Static, which includes an extensive color-change hud to change the frames, sides, and shades

Make sure you check out all the past FabFree coverage of the Uber Anniversary before the event closes. The posts below show more free goodies for you all to get! You will be walking around in style and ready for the next big art event after you collect these fashionable presents.

A Little Fun From Alaskametro

I’m loving the deals I found at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, and I was delighted to see that Alaskametro has a 10L item out at their booth at the event. It’s inside the coconut.  100% of the donations for this item are given to Doctors Without Borders. This nail applier set includes a hud of tropical colours. I will admit that Aline’s love for Alaskametro’s products has totally worn off on me. There are so many shades and designs included in this set! Did you know that even if you use a BOM avatar you can wear omega nails if you have the omega kit installed in your body? They are so cool and I always enjoy using omega nails because they are easy to apply and use- they just apply onto the nails on your body. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival ends on September 18th, so you only have a couple of days left to grab this great nail set for only 10L. You can see an image of the textures included with this nail applier set below.  Note that the set includes toenail appliers as well.

Sizes Included (Nail Appliers)

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Cinn
  • Chai

Here are my past posts which cover some of the 10L donation prizes from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival:

Thanks for reading, FabFree!

Tropical Autumn

Tropical Autumn

I am slowly playing around with introducing a dark autumn vibe in my photos. You all know I love spooky season and it’s starting to creep up on us just a bit! This look is a bit of a mix of summer, autumn, and darkness, so perfect for where we’re at right now at this time of the year.

Just a Spoonful of Sugar For Me…

The Spoonful of Sugar Festival just recently began, as it opened on September 3rd and it closes on September 18th. You only have about 10 more days to check out this great event, and they have a whole lot of stuff to check out!  There’s so many different parts to this event! Most importantly, this event is a benefit/fundraiser, as most of the sales from the event and 100% of the proceeds from hunt (note that it is a paid hunt with a 500L fee) are given to Doctors Without Borders. You can read more about the Spoonful of Sugar Festival on their website here. As you walk around the event, check the tags on the items to see how much of your funds will be donated to the cause.

Today I am showing a 10L outfit from Ari-Pari at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. Just pay the sugar bowl/coconut drink object 10L in their booth at the event here and the outfit is yours. This 10L item is not part of the hunt and anyone can get it for 10L. The outfit includes a colour hud that lets you change the base of the dress to 5 different tropical patterns, and the ruffle skirt to 6 different colours. 100% of the proceeds for this item goes directly to Doctors Without Borders. If you go around the whole event , each booth has a 10-20L item in each booth in the sugar coconut bowls, where 100% of the proceeds go to the cause. There are 7 sims to explore at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, and you can locate the locations for them right here.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Kupra

Some Awesome Makeup!

I also have some beautiful free makeup to show you tonight. You can see a detailed shot of the makeup below.

  • My eyeshadow is from a pack of free BOM eyeshadows at Pout! These are a free group gift. These come in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads. They shadows come with an animal pattern imprinted onto ombre colours. These are fantastic!
  • My pretty lipstick is a free group gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group at Edie’s. This is a HD lipstick applier that fits Lelutka Evolution and Lelutka EvoX heads only. 12 lipstick colours are included in the pack. The Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join.

Tropical Autumn
See you soon, FabFree!

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!

Hey FabFree! The countdown is officially on. There’s only 5 days left of FabFree at Fifteen. All the fun ends on August 6th, and until then we still have a few more great items to showcase on the blog. Everything I am showing today is from the event, and somehow when everything is put together and the photoshoot is done, I feel a bit vintage… bring back animal prints!

Rawr!

  • Ari-Pari has an animal print jumpsuit out for only 50 Lindens as their exclusive. This is an awesome deal, as the jumpsuit includes 10 colour options which you can change using a texture change HUD. This “wilde” jumpsuit fits Physique,  Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Freya, Isis, and Venus.
  • The shoes are the 15L offer from Mosquito’s Way. These are the exclusive Holo single colour of “Lydia”, the new release and exclusive the designer has set out for the event. You can also purchase a megapack, a fatpack or 3-colours packs of these shoes at their FabFree at Fifteen vendor for a discounted rate of 15% off per pack. The shoes are sized for Reborn, Lara, Kupra, and Legacy. Make sure to also grab their free gift for FabFree group members as well, which Aline showed us all here.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Summer Nights

Coming Soon

There’s nothing prettier than looking out at the water at sunrise or nightfall. I’m spending my night at the beach, and I’m enjoying the atmosphere! I have a myriad of things to show you in my post today, including more beautiful items from FabFree at Fifteen and the Summer Camp Hunt, which were all used to create this fun beach look. Keep reading to get all the details!

Oh.My.Jawdrop.

Ari-Pari was a wee bit delayed putting out their FabFree at Fifteen offerings, so you may not have seen or picked up their items yet as they were added to the event page a week or so after the event started. It was so worth the wait, though. I absolutely love this bathing suit, which is their 15L offering. It includes a colour-changing hud with 10 options. Their free gift for all FabFree group members is a gorgeous glass bead choker that looks simply stunning with the swimsuit. The choker also includes a textue changing hud with 10 glass bead and 2 suede cord colour options. I think my jaw dropped a bit when I put these on. Bravo, Ariana!

Sizes Included (swimsuit)

  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Reborn

The beautiful nail polish you can see me wearing is a free gift for all FabFree group members from Eventyra for FabFree at Fifteen. I’ve been having a lot of fun wearing their nails while covering this event, as they are so nifty. When you open up the package, just add the HUD and click on your body creator’s logo. Then the HUD will open up several colour options for the nails. These ones are covered in gears and lace and they come in grey, gold and green options. These appliers work on your toenails too (see the detailed shot at the bottom of the post).

Sizes Included (fingernail and toenail appliers)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Cinnamon & Chai
  • Omega

Seastars & Beachflush

Coming Soon

  • My pretty starfish earrings are one of the hunt prizes from Starlight Apparel on the Summer Camp Hunt at Malus Park, which is open until August 14th. I blogged all about the hunt here, so read that post for more details about the hunt. These earrings will fit any avatar as they are unrigged and can be adjusted to fit your head. They cost 10L on the hunt!
  • My beautiful eyeshadow is from the full-priced item set out by Lempika for FabFree at Fifteen. It includes an HD applier for Lelutka EvoX, and 15 colour options are included. It only costs 60L!
  • My freckles and blush are the full-priced item at alaskametro<3. It comes in an Omega applier, and it also includes BOM layers for standard BOM and Lelutka EvoX, and classic tattoo layers. It costs 95L.

Slither Along

Coming Soon

  • HORL has this beautiful “Mystic Snake Tattoo” available as a free gift for FabFree group members for FabFree at Fifteen. It comes in a BOM tattoo layer, and a tintable version is also included.
  • rainnn has a pretty set of flip-flops available for free for those who are in the FabFree group for FabFree at Fifteen. The flip-flops include 5 patterns, which you can change via a colour hud. These fit Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy, Reborn, Slink and unrigged feet. See a detailed shot of this lovely gift below!

Coming Soon

All of the FabFree at Fifteen freebies and deals are only available until August 6th, so don’t delay!
