Beautiful Morning

Lisbon_007

Hey fab fam!

You know that feeling when the air is a bit cool, but warmer days are coming so the sun feels toasty warm?  Don’t you just lurrrrrve that feeling?  And when the sun is coming in and the floor gets warm and you are barefoot and it feel soooo soothing on your feet and toesy-woesies?  ahhhhhhh.  I wish I was feeling that right now!  As life would have it at the moment I am chilled and trying to get warm!  I literally put on a big fluffy sweater, the fingerless gloves that I absolutely love, and my unicorn hat.  Yes, I have a unicorn hat, so I am a unicorn writing a blog right now.  Who says we don’t exist (INFP= sparkly unicorns!)??

Aline and I sometimes wonder if anyone actually *reads* these posts… we are not sure anyone does.  Yet we babble away into the unknown, just in case someone *does* actually read it (if you do, please let us know in the comments!  We would love to know someone reads our silly drivel!), but we have our doubts that many do.  Y’all are just sneaking in to see pics, grab links and RUN arencha????  sneaky little shoppers  😉

While we are on that subject, let me tell you about this sexy little number I’m wearing today… I found this in the Kings & Queens Hunt for just 1L, and the hunt runs til the end of the month!  It is from PinkFunk and is totally cute.  It is also what I call a “boob-dangle” meaning your boob is dangling out in the open (since this blog is PG-13 I have strategically tucked my dangling boob under my hair) (and how many times do you think I can use the word boob and dangle together in one blog post?????  See, if you aren’t reading these posts through, you miss all the fun!).   Just one of the many styles that are popular in second life, that if you walked around like that in real life you would get arrested, or worse!  Like, “Oops!  Oh I’ll just leave it hanging out!”

So, this cute little number, with air conditioning for the girls on one side only fits Maitreya.  But for one linden, you can’t beat that with a stick!

More soon chickadees and …. Roosteradees?

Hanging Around

bird pic_006 (4)

Hey FabFree! How’s it goin’?  I’m just hanging out and enjoying all the awesome goodies I found last weekend! I have a lot of freebies and group gifts to share with you today so I am going to jump straight in! 

Goodies @ The Gacha Garden

You can pick up a few gifts at this round of The Gacha Garden and I am showing a few here, including:

  • Free BOM stockings in Purple, Black and Brown from Morbid Mausoleum
  • Free heart earrings and glasses from No Cabide. This is the same gift that Aline blogged yesterday; you can pick them up at both events for free!
  • The table next to me is also a free gift at The Gacha Garden! The table comes in several options, and options to use the table with or without the candelabra, goblet and yummy chocolates on it.

There are a few gifts around the sim, so enjoy all the free gifts this round has to offer! You just need to join the free Bellatech group and the join code for that group is here:

Gachas!

I also had the chance to play some fun gachas at The Gacha Garden. Most of my outfit, including the dress, boots, the skull headband, the backpack and the cat handbag are all part of the Gothic Lolita Gacha by MOoH! Each play is 50L a try, and you can see the gacha key below of everything available on the gacha. When you play 20 times you will receive the heart choker for free, and I just love the cute little skull choker too!

Dress & Boots Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

The Gacha Garden ends on May 31st, so go check this great event out before the end of this month!

More gifties!

I also am wearing a couple more group gifts from around the grid to create this look.

  • The cute heart animation on my chest is the latest group gift at LuluB. The LuluB group costs  150L to join, and this gift is adorable! The little heart moves around and flashes lights and sits on your chest.
  • My gorgeous lipstick is the latest group gift at Trend. The pack comes with 12 colours, with appliers for Lelutka Evo and Origin, Catwa HD and Pro, and Genus heads. The Trend group currently costs 250L to join.
  • My gorgeous auburn eyes are a group gift at Avi-Glam. The Avi-Glam group costs 10 L to join and they have a number of beautiful eyes available in their group. These eyes come in appliers for Catwa, Lelutka Evo, Genus, and BOM/system layers and omega appliers.
  • My skin- called Lotte – is a camper chair prize at 7 Deadly S[K]ins which you can get if you camp on a chair for 50 minutes. This offer is available for group members of 7 Deadly S[K]ins , and their group currently costs 295L to join. This skin is a BOM skin designed for Lelutka Evo heads. 
  • Finally, this adorable hair is a free gift from {Limerence} over at the current anniversary round of FaMESHed, and it comes in a number of cute pastel colours! The FaMESHed group is free to join. Make sure you go back to Aline’s post here to see more gifts you can get at the FaMESHed anniversary. FaMESHed ends on May 27th so you still have some time to collect all the gifties!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Three Free Bee(s)!

Coming soon

So gang, I’ve got not one, but TWO Fab Free Group Gifts for you today, plus a freebie from Ajuda Brazil.

But first a little about rl.

It is finally warm enough to sit on my patio, so of course the moment I got all set up with my laptop, some water and my notes, they show up to do the lawns.  (I forgot they do that on Wednesday, but they usually start much earlier!)  So not only is it noisy as all get out, but grass cuttings give me a migraine.  I do love the smell of freshly mowed grass…. but I digress.  on top of that, I have a chi who does not want to lay nicely on the blanket I set for him, he needs to be in my lap.  He’s not a tiny chi either.  He is big for a chi (tall I should say).

I am determined to spend some outdoor time today so here I sit, trying but failing to block the noise from my sensitive to noise brain, hoping the pollen won’t get to me, balancing the little man on my lap and bringing you guys goodies all at the same time.  This puts new meaning to the word multitasking!

Ok Freebie time

(omg I cant think!  aaaagggghhhhh!!!) (imagine multiple leaf blowers and lawn mowers going all at once… you get the picture.. )

Both freebies today are gifts for the FabFree Group, which of course is free to join.  Just make sure that the FabFree Group Tag is active and click to get your gifts!

The first being a full outfit from YOU by GeMyles.  This comes with both the cute dress I am wearing in the pic as well as the equally cute shoes.  They come with a HUD that offers a plethora of colors to choose from.

The dress fits:

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

The shoes fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The second FabFree Giftie is the cute little purse, this comes courtesy of Glitterati, again, just join the Free FabFree Group and wear your tag and click!  Tada!  Cute little purple bag is yours!

Plus One More!

Lastly, but not leastly, my necklace is a freebie from Ajuda Brazil.  This comes courtesy of Venge.  Ajuda Brazil is well worth the visit if you aren’t familiar with it, there are (again) a plethora (Gosh I love that word!) of freebies to get got.

Now I shall wrap this up for today gang.  My head is spinning from the noise and I need to get recombobulated! (psst. Aline!)

Til next time!  Hope you are all getting some fresh spring air soon too!

Anand

coming soon

Sometimes things just fall together.  That’s exactly what happened this time after I visited the 77th Street Event and found this sexy little dress by Faida.  It was only 7L!  Can you even imagine???  In fact, there are a BUNCH of vendors there that have an item for 7L for you, so its practically bliss!  The title of this post, Anand, is Sanskrit for bliss.

My headdress is from Ayashi and it’s a 75L gacha (I have been trying to get the rare hair from there, but it keeps eluding me!), the necklace from Fabia is a 75L gacha as well.

Anyhoo, the dress comes in:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Tonic Fine & Fine Mini

Just as a side note, does anyone else feel reminded of Mary Poppins with my shadow in this picture?  lol.  If only I had worn a skirt!  No offense Mary Poppins, but I think my umbrella is much cuter than yours!

Sayanara gang!  The quest for freebies and bahgains continues…

For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

MINA Hair - Annie - Oct/Nov VIP Group Gift

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

[Ari-Pari] Belinda Spring Dress

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Sizes Included

  • Lara

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,
