Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!

Hey faboo guys n gals!  (gals n guys??),

Back again with a very sweet Fab Free group gift from one of my favorites Zoom!  I’ve been setting up a space station for my newest home (isn’t it fun how you can change houses in second life??) and took a break for some shopping and that’s when I saw this.  I love the artsy-ish short with the simple skirt, it just strikes a lovely balance, don’t you think?  It comes with a HUD allowing you to choose from four matching colors (for top and skirt) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the board, if you need to join, the group is free to join, always, so no worries there!  Gift is free and group is free.  You can’t beat that with a stick!

Now, if you *really* wanna splurge, my hair is from Arata and it is only 1L.  No group needed!  There are actually several cute 1L gifts up on the wall there.  😉  So that’s that, you can get this entire outfit and hair for a whopping 1L!  Does Fab Free bring it, or what?  We got yer’ backs!

Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

And it ends with I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed ahold, they lifted me up to the sky and that's when the rainbow appeared.

Stay Golden

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m dreaming of the spring and summer seasons… oh how I miss the nice weather. I set up a Jacuzzi at my log home to experience that summer moment. The Linden homes never change snow in the winter months unless you set up your own so I can just pretend Winter doesn’t exist here…

Golden Hour

This pretty golden dress only costs 55L at Evolve. It’s on sale temporarily, and you can also get this dress in green, red, and orange. I went for the gold because I was in a golden type of mood. These dresses should be on sale until this Thursday but go ASAP if you want it because sometimes they are taken down at different times.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Legacy

Higgle!

I’m also showing a bunch of jewelery from Higgle tonight. I’ve posted a closeup so you can see all the intricate details and fine crafting that went into the creation of these beautiful jewlery pieces. Each item only costs 1 Linden each on the Marketplace.

Coming Soon

  • The rings shown on each of my hands are each 1L gifts & they fit Maitreya, Kupra, Legacy, Reborn, & Belleza mesh hands. It’s such a treat for me to find Belleza rings, as rings are a hot item that I can’t often find in my body size. Facing from where you’re looking, my left hand is wearing the Speranza ring set, which is a number of rings that wrap around three fingers. These rings come in sizes for both your left & right hands. You can purchase that ring set right here for only 1L. On the right, I am wearing the large, glamourous Melchior ring. This is perfect for for a more formal look, and it costs only 1L on the Marketplace. This ring can only be worn on your left hand. As it’s 1L, you may also gift this ring for your partner! It’s a wonderful gift, and beautifully made. ❤ Both gifts include texture change huds that allow you to change the colours of the metal of the ring bands and the gem stones.
  • My ear jewlery is 1L, which can be found for sale here. This piece comes in gold and there is a hud included to change the colour of the gem stone in the centre. This isn’t an earring, but a pretty wire decor earpiece.
  • The pretty floral necklace and arm braclet are also a 1L gift, which you can grab here. Both items are included in the package!

Return to Fabia

Fabia is such a generous designer! I have collected so many of their hairs overtime and I’m just starting to try them all on. This is the May hairstyle and it’s a current group gift. The Fabia group currently costs 200L to join. The hair includes several colour huds and a style hud that allows you to style the bangs or turn them off. It’s a super cute ponytail!

See you soon, FabFree!

Colourful

Coming Soon

As much as I love black clothing, I can enjoy a colourful look from time to time. Whenever I have the chance, I buy my favourite items in black. My blogger self is a just a wee bit more colourful than the way I dress when I’m alone and out of the spotlight. Anywho, today’s post is all about colour so let’s jump in and enjoy these colourful and bright items.

Multi-Coloured

Speaking of colours, the Multicolor Hunt is going on right now and they have a tonne of colourful items out at stores around the grid right now! Each prize costs only 3L, and here is a list of the hunt previews, LMs, and hints. The three gorgeous paintings behind me are the prize by Cwtch. You just click the painting to change the colours on it and you can copy it as many times as you want to display them around your house. They are so pretty and colourful! I just love them. 3 Linden for this gorgoeus set of artworks is a great deal! The Multicolor Hunt is going on until January 31st, so not much time left to get your hunt on!

Like a Swan

A while ago, folks in the FabFree chat were talking about Swan and all the gifts available at their store so I had to check it out. Swan appears to be a jewelery store, and they have a whole wall of dollarbies. Look for the ‘free‘ sign on the wall next to the group gifts. These dollarbies are separate from the group gifts. Once I found the wall of cute jewelery for only 1L a piece, I snatched them all up! The gold hoop earrings I am wearing are one of these gifts. They’re gorgeous! I am happy I checked out Swan, as this store was totally new to me until now! Thank you Fab chatters for introducing this awesome store to me! ❤

Lilly

Finally, these adorable shoes are a group gift at StaphaneL. These shoes are called Lilly and they come with options to change the clasps, soles, heels and different parts of the outside of the shoe to different textures. These are so customizable! The StephaneL group costs 15L to join but it’s so worth the join fee. Lots of group gifts and lucky letter prizes are to be found at StephaneL for their group members.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Magical Moments

Magical Moments

Ah, I love a good magical interlude!  Time to conjure some prettiness, and blast those midwinter blues away.  What better than a gorgeous red dress to do that?

Pre-Valentines

Telsiope’s Couture have a gorgeous new dress on Marketplace for just 1L.  It’s slinky, it’s fabulous… it kind of put me in the mood to head into the woods barefoot and dance in the moonlight.  So, that’s what I did!  Of course, you can always style this dress in other ways, which is what half the fun is, I’d say.  Grab it on MP today!

Sizes

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Unicorns, Snowflakes & Multi-coloured Trees

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m hanging out at the gorgeous Mystic Dreamers Mall, the home of Shanti & New Monday. Look at the gorgeous unicorn statue and the colourful tree! The decorating is so pretty. This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!

Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy haunting hunting!

Night at the Museum

Coming Soon

Happy Monday, FabFree! It’s time for a night at the museum and I am stoked. I even brought my little puppy with me. I’ll just have to hide him in my purse to keep him away from the artifacts. I’m sure the pupster and I can sneak in some selfies when the security guards aren’t looking!

Your Shopping List

While I’m at the museum, you can go freebie shopping. Here is a shopping list of the fab finds I have on today:

  • This cute hairstyle is a lucky chair prize for group members of MINA Hair. The MINA Hair VIP group costs 200L to join. This style comes with a blonds colour HUD. 
  • My cute black and red plaid boots are a free gift at the Free Dove at the StephaneL designer booth. They have three amazing pairs of free shoes at the booth. Like all Free Dove gifts, you will need to join the free Free Dove group to get the boots!
  • The beautiful choker I have on is a free gift from Sorumin on the Marketplace. It’s simply outstanding! I do not usually like chokers, but I love how detailed the rose is. There is colour HUD that comes with the choker that allows for a high level of customization (changing colours of the choker, the rose and the metals). 
  • My wicked shorts are by Nerdy Girl, and they only cost 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Nerdy Girl has a load of dollarbies on their Marketplace store so scoop them up. 

Go With the Trend 

The last order of business today is all about Trend. I love this store, and I am more lucky letter prizes from this designer. I am currently wearing the sweet temptation lipstick and the hot eyeshadow. Trend’s group currently costs 250 lindens to join. 

Enjoy, FabFree!
