Summer Fun!

coming soon

Hey gang!

I’ve got a Caroline style post for you today, with a whole list of goodies!  😀

Let’s not beat around the bush shall we?  (where exactly does that expression come from?  Beating around a bush to… chase something out?  idk!  lol)

Get this look for 6L!  Yes You Heard Right!

My cute top is a 1L gift from Bold Llama for the Around the Grid Hunt.  If you do not want to hunt, you can purchase it for 25L at the sign.  Its got a lotus on it which I love.  It fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin

My skirt is a free group gift from Promagic, and that group is free to join, it has a HUD with a load of colors and it fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

My boots are a marketplace find from Lacy’s Apparel.  They are only 5L on market and also come with a HUD giving you a variety of color choices.  The boots fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My hair is a free group gift from Sintiklia, their group is also free to join and they have a whole wall of group gifts!

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

coming soon

That should keep y’all busy for about an hour or so.  😉  Have fun!!

Get Your Feet Wet  & Go For a Swim

Coming SoonIt’s beach time, FabFree! I love exploring beaches on SL. I came across Kanaloa Beach thanks to Aline’s recommendation, and I had the chance to explore and take some pics with friends the other day. It’s such a pretty sim and perfect for summer! I think they even have some fireworks on the beach events coming up. 

Blue Eyes like the ocean

If you are a Lelutka Evolution head user, you should definitely swing by the Sense Event and get these gorgeous blue eyes by Luka, which are free with the Sense event’s free-to-join group. The eyes come with a Lelutka Evolution applier and in BOM. I’m not sure if the BOM eyes work with other heads, but it’s possible!

A Great Shell Necklace

The second free item I am showing today is a beautiful necklace by a new-to-me store called Carlynda Jewelers. My friend Orion helped me find this awesome item, and it is totally free on the Marketplace. Carlynda Jewelers has a couple freebies available there so go check out their Marketplace store.  

SOUTH SEA SHELL PEARL NECKLACE GIFT

A Lil’Bonus: a FREE Swim Hud

Ok so this isn’t exactly shown in my photo, but I did play around with this awesome free swim HUD while I was hanging out at Kanaloa Beach. This hud is awesome! You can swim, dive, etc. wherever there is water. It worked great at the beach! Try it out- you won’t regret it and it is free. You can get it for free on the Marketplace by Thor’s Oak. This item works for any gender.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Gee, I Love this Blog!

AnaSTYLE @ Girls Heaven Event June

Hey Gang!

It’s grey and gloomy as usual where I live so I am soaking up the sun in second life!  Time to put on a cute dress and take a nice walk outside in the sl air!  Ahhhhh.

So as I approach my six month mark here at Fab Free (yes six months have just flown by!  Don’t you agree?) I wanted to revisit a couple of my favorites that have  been blogged, make sure you haven’t missed them!  Cause they are both oh so freaking cute!!!  Squeee!

Gee, I love your hairdo!

Some of you may not be old enough to remember, but there was *actually* a shampoo once upon a time called “Gee your hair smells terrific!”  Literally!  They named it an entire sentence!  Things have gotten a bit fancier in advertising and naming of products since those days.  In second life, we never have to wash our hair, and we can change the style and color in the blink of an eye, so it helps when you have lots to choose from!  I’m wearing a free group gift from Kuni, that has been blogged several times before, including my me (in pink!), and you can click those below, if you want to see how it looks in brown or black, too!), but I just love the braid and the whispy bangs!  The group is free to join, so that makes this cute must-have hair a, well, a must-have!

Boho Fringe!

The second is these shoes from ROC that I saw one day on marketplace and have blogged once before, but I just love them since the day I saw them and I wear them every chance I can, when I am not being my barefoot self, that is!  They go for a mere 50L and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Gee, I’d love to stay but I’m off to find more goodies to bring y’all!  Hope your Monday has been painless!

[POUT!] prideful face Stars

Cae is Closing… </3

I’m very sad by the recent news that one of my favourite jewelry stores is closing. Cae will be leaving SL at the end of June, so make sure you stop by the store and grab all their free gifts before they go away forever. My bracelets, earring and adorable necklace are all free gifts from Cae, and the group is free to join. Cae also has a 75% off sale so load up before the gorgeous jewels are gone forever!

A Boho Set

Coming Soon

Phew, I’m getting tired FabFree! This is a lot of freebies to gab about all at once. I hope I don’t overload you. Finally, I wanted to show off an amazing Boho furniture and decor set at Careless. This provided the perfect new set for my skybox, and it costs only 25L. Yes, 25 L for the couch, rugs, tapestries, lights, cushions, cactus, table, all of it… incredible! Such a steal! I got the adult set and it is the same price as the PG. Just waltz over the Careless and grab this set for a low price. 

See you soon, FabFree!

Hide & Seek

Coming Soon to FabFree

I was playing a little game of hide and seek with my friends. Yeah, I’m way too old for that, but who cares? We all know I’m a bit childish. Anyways, I hid in the cupboard but eventually my friends found me. Bummer!

The Perfect Hiding Place

Sometimes you just need to hide and retreat into yourself to feel better, you know? Well, this great cupboard by Zigana has the perfect solution for that. The cupboard is only 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Not only is it a beautiful cupboard, but you can also crawl inside it and it has adorable little animations. The doors even close after you get inside it! This is one of many dollarbies you can find by Zigana on the Marketplace. I am also showing a barn skybox and a maroccan table made by Zigana as well- most of the items on their Marketplace store cost 0 or 1 Linden because this amazing designer retired in-world some time ago. What a treat!

The Caroline Dress

Caroline is wearing the Caroline dress at Evolve, and it’s currently on sale for only 55 Linden! I’m not sure how long this offer is on for so you better rush over there if you want it! The dress comes in dark purple, pink, and a light and dark teal. It’s gorg! 

Sizes Included

  • Freya 
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass

I also matched the dress with an adorable little silver hearts choker from Boutique#187. I just love it. It matches this whole look perfectly! The choker is just out for 0L, free of charge. 

Dany

I am so in love with this hair, and it reminds of Daenerys from Game of Thrones! Guess what? It’s a freebie from Alli&Ali Designs and I won it on one of their many MM boards at this location

Dollarbies at Lorien

Finally, my rainbow nails- which are small in my photo- are only 1 L at Lorien. These nails are omega only. They have a number of dollarbies at the entrance of the store, so go check them out! It can’t hurt to shop when the items are so cheap. 😉

Have fun hiding, FabFree!

Accessorize

Coming Soon

An Accessories & Hair Day

Today is an accessories day. I love adding little trinkets to my AVI, and it’s something I’ve developed a love for over time. Sometimes it takes for forever to make that necklace or earring to fit just right, but it’s so worth it! I hope you all enjoy little trinkets, items, and jewels you can use to accessorize your AVI because that’s what I’m mainly showing today! I will also later announce how to get a whole LOAD of free hair. 

The Perfect Cross

My necklace is a gorgeous cross necklace which is a free group gift at Finer Threads. This necklace is so detailed. It’s a must have! It only comes in one colour, but the shine of the gold on this chain is stunning. 

Little Mandalas

The gorgeous earrings are also a free group gift at Zaara. simply join the free group and the earring are yours in gold and silver. They look like little Mandalas, which I love.  

Did someone say Functional Demo?

Have you ever heard of a functional or wearable demo? It’s basically a gift, disguised as a demo! What it means is there is no demo box attached to the item, so you can wear it all you like. The beautiful hair I have on is a functional demo from Alli&Ali Designs. I grabbed it on the Marketplace. In fact, Alli&Ali Designs has almost every hair up on their marketplace store with a “functional demo”- a free gift of each hair in one colour only. The colours shown in the ads are the same colour your receive with the free gift. This is a very generous offer from Alli&Ali Designs. The full version (paid) include more colours, but to make the demo fully wearable is a treat! Since Alli&Ali Designs has over 900 hairstyles in their marketplace store for both men and women, so you can get a LOT of one-colour hairs for free. I’m still loading up and picking what I want.  😉 The lovely hair I am wearing today is called Viola and it comes in red. Check out this link to see the demos of all the hairs which are fully wearable in the colour shown in the ad. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

It’s completely free– just join the event’s free group and the gift is yours! The dress includes panties and it comes in several colours. The event ends on May 31st, so head over quickly to get these gifts before they disappear!

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
