Gardening, Bohemian Style

Boho Garden

I don’t know about y’all, but I am enjoying starting to get out in my garden.  The sunshine, the smell of the flowers, I love it!  Things are starting to grow and its getting closer to a time when I can just chill and sip some ice cold sweet tea (I’m a southern girl, doncha’ know).  Luckily I have this beautiful Bohemian Garden Shack to relax near my garden.  You can find it at this month’s Swank Event.  It is by Dreamland Designs, it is beautiful and comes with plenty of poses.

Now of course I’m not here without a freebie for y’all so I have this adorable boho style dress from Be Bold, it is a Fab Free Group Gift so you can wear your group tag and grab it.  The Fab Free group is of course free to join.  It comes with a HUD giving you four color choices and it fits Maitreya Lara.

Now I am about to grab my watering can and give these babies a drink, so I have to run!

Your favorite blonde gardening blogger,

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

He/she has a touch menu that lets you turn on or off a breathing animation, change between several preset fur choices for the puppy, and pick the color of the pillow. To get your copy of this adorable group gift just head over to Jian and join their group. Right now the Jian group is free to join. You’ll find this free gift and a handful of others waiting at the Jian main store.

Welcome to the Sun


Freespirits

Namaste Fellow Fab Free Flower Children, and welcome back to the blog! Spring is officially here and the dollarbie Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute had me feeling like a free-spirit so I grabbed my guy Blue once again for a groovy adventure. It was a lot of fun teaming up with him again to try and capture the feeling of such an iconic time period. His tie-dye shirt, and Pru’s long skirt and halter top are both part of the same hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute.  I hope you enjoy this 1 linden Boho Hunt gift as much as we did.

His Tie-Dye Shirt – Nothing says “Free Spirit” more than tie dye if you ask me. This long-sleeve tee is the gift for the guys in the Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars. To get your copy just look for the Boho Hunt object, a cute little llama, at Fukin’ Cute and purchase it for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Nardcotix David, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Niramyth Aesthetic, Slink Male, TMP, Absolute Creations Adam

Her Skirt & Halter Top – Something about the green and white mandala-like pattern on this outfit by Fukin’ Cute just feels like spring. The outfit is the female part of the 1L Boho Hunt gift at Fukin’ Cute. With this outfit you’ll get the skirt and top in several sizes. I like the idea of being able to wear the top and skirt separately. All you have to do is find the Boho Hunt llama and purchase it for 1 linden to get your copy.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Hint – “…and she’s climbing the stairway to heaven.” – Led Zeppelin

Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’ve been fishing! Of course I mean 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Their current “Fish 4 This” outfit was just too cute to pass up. Not to mention the fact that you can score a full head to toe look with different color choices for several of the pieces. Also, there are options that make this look suitable for Classic avatars. The following blurb is a quick “how-to” for those new to 7Seas Fishing. I’ve posted it before, but figured I’d post it again just incase someone needed the information. If you’ve already figured the fishing thing out, just skip that part.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

“That Magical Night” Outfit 

Like most of the Fish4This outfits at Sn@tch, this one includes everything you see in the photo, just about. These items are all free, as long as you have your 7Seas Fishing Rod. There are 21 total pieces, including the top with bra in an Omega applier, and system layers, 6 mesh skirts, the black tights in Omega appliers, mesh boots (alpha layer and shoe base fished separately), jewelry, and the hairstyle shown in 3 colors. Also, each of the mesh skirts come with the following size options: Standard Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Fine, Curvy), and EBody.

Here are the details!

Hair – #taketomiWEST – Aishwarya – The Hills
Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face
Skin – Essences – Lora (Genus)
Head Jewels – Sn@tch  – 20 :::Sn@tch Sashi Jewels (Nose Attach)::: – Free Fishing Prize / 100L Rod Required

A Little Old Place Where We Can Get Together

To the Moon and Back

Hello There Fab Free’rs, welcome back to the blog! The Gacha Garden event has started. So needless to say I have a gorgeous bohemian furniture and décor set, complete with the house for everything to go inside to share with you. I’m not often much of a “gacha” person, but I do like gachas as a way to get beautiful furniture and décor pieces. This set is by none other than Petite Mort. I’ve always been a fan of the boho style in both clothing and furniture. This set is just 50 lindens per play at Gacha Garden. Petite Mort also added an exclusive prize set of houseplants (not pictured) to this set that is awarded after 20 pulls. The seating, and the Rare bed all have PG couples and individual poses. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key for this “Love Shack” set below so you can get a second look. Happy Gacha-ing!

Just a Wish

Just a Wish
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Did you know that Sn@tch has a new 7Seas Fishing outfit out? I got notice of this gorgeous set the other day and had to try my luck. The skirt alone was enough to grab my attention. However, I have to say I am very much impressed with the way the skirt and the sweater both look on. All the pieces to this very gypsy boho style look are lovey really, even though I chose to show just the skirt and sweater in my photo. First, if you have never been fishing with the 7Seas Fishing rod before I’ll give you a quick rundown.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Moonchild

This “Fish for This” outfit from Sn@tch has several pieces. You can score a complete head-to-toe look. You’ll end up reeling in individual pieces of the outfit one at a time. Items like the skirt and top which come in several sizes will be pulled in by color so all size options are included. When I said several pieces are up for grabs, I meant it. There are 24 pieces total including hair, jewelry, and shoes! There are also system layers for classic avatars. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at the complete “Moonchild” outfit by Sn@tch. The mesh skirt and sweater both come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Hourglass, Physique) bodies.

Here are the details, enjoy!
