Lavendula Angustifolia

Lavendula Angustifolia

There’s nothing I love more than Lavender.  It’s been an important part of my life for years and years.  I love the way it looks, the way it smells, and all the memories it brings back of trips I took to the South of France.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before here, but I’m the kind of person who has a little sachet of the stuff under my pillow to ensure sweet dreams.  I get to decorate my home in it in SL, and that brings me just a little spark of joy!

Wash it Up!

The Wash Event continues, and really the more you explore the more you find!  I couldn’t resist these gorgeous decor items by Kaerri.  The elegant chairs are the things that dreams are made of for me, and the fact that each decor item cost only 25L is a deal and a half.  I got the chairs, curtains, mirror, and planters there and I couldn’t be happier!  There are a bunch of other items too, including a table and lots of little plants.  I can just imagine the scent!

Clothed in Comfort

While I was at The Wash, I also picked up this sweet outfit by Shae’s.  The top and jeans cost just 25L each, and they are a perfect fit.  I love the way it all looks on – the perfect mix of comfort and sexy.  There are a bunch of different colours to choose from, as well as different jean washes to satisfy all your denim cravings.  You can even pick up the matching shoes to the set for just 50L at their display.

Hi Fab Free, question, is it still called breakfast if it’s not morning? I don’t know about you, but I could eat bacon, sausage, and eggs any time of day. Add some fresh fruit to the mix and that makes it perfect. This scrumptious looking meal, and my tied tee are both available at The Cart Sale priced too fabulously to pass them up. Keep reading for all the delicious details, and check the end for full credits. Lastly, enjoy your breakfast! 😛

Dark Knight Décor 

My mouth-watering meal including the coffee and cutlery are from Dark Knight Decor’s booth at The Cart Sale. Along with this traditional breakfast, there are a handful of other equally detailed food items. There’s also a few kitchen décor bits and bobs to be had. The breakfast set I picked up is just 25 linden, and will look fantastic on your table, or balanced on the arm of your seaside chair.

Dark Water Designs 

An iconic warm weather wardrobe stable has to be a tied tee. This baby blue and white top by Dark Water Designs is also available at The Cart Sale. There are several spring-like shades available for 25 linden each. These tops are not only cute, they come in several sizes, and have an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (V1, V2), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Hey there Fabulouses,  With the Crisp N Cool Event coming to a close soon on the 22nd,  I wanted to pop in and show you another couple of sweet things I liked!

It’s hard to see the detailing on this beautiful caged ring by Luminesse, so I have included a vendor ad below for you to peek at.  The Mihaly Ring in Lenora Gold is just 10L on display at The Crisp N Cool Event.

The Creative Process

The Creative Process

Ah, Fab Free…the creative juices are a-flowin!  And there’s a sentence that sounded better in my head.  Despite my clunky phrase, the sentiment remains the same!  I’m all about the artistic pursuits, whether in RL or SL, so why not adorn your SL affordably?  Read on!

So De’Fient

My lovely boots and dress are the offering by De’Fient Unicorn at The Wash Crisp n Cool Cart Sale.  They come bundled together and are priced at a very affordable 50L.  I’d pay way more than that for the boots alone!  I also picked up the long cardigan at the same stall, and it only cost me 1L.  Cute, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS-L with an Alpha Layer

Easel-y Done

Terrible subtitles aside, I love the whole art set I picked up at The Cart Sale by Luna Rose.  The easel I’m painting on and the stool came together and cost 50L.  The exciting part is that the canvas has a function that lets you paint gradually.  In other words, the painting appears more and more complete each time you click on it and there are two different paintings to choose from.  Fun!  I also picked up the canvases on the ground in my shot at the same cart, and they set me back only 25L.  I love to decorate in SL, so these were fun buys for me!

Do you keep it creative?  Let me know in the comments!

The Last Supper

The Last Supper

“Oh Storax Tree! Oh Strax Tree! The Fab Free gift and kitty cats are lovey!” – sang to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree.”

Happy weekend Fab Free! Sometimes the freebies and cheapies you find are worth singing about, you know? It also helps that the Strax Tree name really lends itself well to Christmas carols. haha That said, I did pick up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift, and one of the 10 linden items from The Cart Sale by Storax Tree. Keep reading for more details.

Fab Free Group Gift

First, this fantastic green loveseat is the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members at Storax Tree. This gift is no mod, no transfer, but it is copy so you can rez multiple. It also has resize scripts, and several animated sits, some of which have props. The accent pillow also changes texture when clicked. To get this free gift just head to Storax Tree and click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag. Need a Fab Free group tag? Not to worry, there’s a group joiner at Storax Tree and the group is free to join.

The Cart Sale     

Storax Tree has lots of seriously discounted goodies at The Cart Sale. I could not resist picking up the pair of cats shown in my photo. Titled “Feline Autumn Meeting” these cats are just 10 linden and include a patch of grass and pebbles so they settle nicely into an outdoor or otherwise rustic setting. They can also be purchased in several colors/fur patterns. Like the furniture, these little guys have resize scripts too. Don’t miss out on these, for just 10 linden at The Cart Sale they are too cute to pass up.

Here Are the Details:

Loveseat – Storax Tree – Seattle Bistro Stuffed Loveseat – Free Fab Free Group Gift/Fab Free Group is free to Join
Cats – Storax Tree – Feline Autumn Meeting – 10L @The Cart Sale
Table – Fancy Décor – Minimal Concrete Table – Past Group Gift (Still Available)/Group is 250L to Join

Crisp and Cool

Crisp and Cool

I’m taking it easy this weekend Fab Free, Just gonna enjoy the last vestiges of Fall (as Love and I mentioned, it’s quite frigid in the Northern Marches), but let’s just pretend that the sun is shining and the leaves are golden and that there isn’t a fine dusting of snow over everything. Let’s jump into the fall goodies!

Carting it all Away

The Wash’s Crisp and Cool Cart Sale continues, and you really can find some awesome things while persuing the stalls.  I grabbed this set of jeans and top by Arctic Storm for a mere 25L.  I really like the asymmetrical hem, as well as the triangle design on the top.  Super cool!  I’m also decorating my scene with some gorgeous red fall mums that I picked up at The Cart Sale by Dark knight Decor.  They only cost 25L and really perk everything up!   Head on over to The Wash Cart Sale for loads of goodies!

Outfit Sizes

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

Keep it gorgeous, Fab Free!

Picnic in Canada

FabFree: Picnic in Canada
Well Fabulouses… As Aline mentioned the other day [HERE], it seems in Canada the snow and cold is here to stay for the season.  She created her own heat to stay warm, but I’m just gonna bundle up with warm fuzzy clothes today!  I found that I really like this super cute flannel dress at The Crisp N Cool Event and I hope you will like it enough to pick it up for 10L too!

Wear a moose

Yep, that there is a moose on the front of my flannel dress if the black and red lumberjack print didn’t already give my home country away!  At The Crisp N Cool Event on the Vicarious Youth Display, you can pick up this dress in adult, teen and children sizes for just 10L per pack!  I am wearing the adult size, of course lol.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
