There’s No Place Like Home

decor_006

Hey gang!  For today’s finds, I am taking you inside my humble abode, and also to our new Fab Free Headquarters!  So travel around the grid with me if you will!  We Fab Free sisters live and breathe freebies and deals so that means we use them in our little corners of the grid, just like y’all do!  We try to set a good example by *trying* to live frugally! (not always easy!  hee hee)

So, let’s get started, as I have a lot to show you.  Above is my kitchen table area, I did this with a kitchen set from Careless (I didn’t even put everything out!) that cost me only 49L.  It’s super cute and I added a couple of odds and ends from them too.  The poses are great too, really well made stuff!

Below is my living room.  My couch and chair are a set, also from Careless, but they are a group gift meaning they are free cause the group is free to join as well!  If this color isn’t your thing, you guessed it, she has other colors for 49L!  The cute Tulips on my mantle?  10L at Careless.  The little trees with lights are from Caro Designe on market and you can get them for 50L.

Below you can see I used the little trees from Caro in more than one place, they are just sooo pretty!  The pink Paris themed dresser with fairy lights?  That’s one of my creations and you can grab that at Shanti for only 50L!

Here is another market find that I absolutely love, these little lantern lights from What Next.  You can grab these on their marketplace store for only 10L!  They are stunning, let me tell you!  You can of course put them anyplace you like, I strung them along my fence by the pool.

Lastly, I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to pop by and check out the new headquarters yet, but in keeping with the fab free spirit, the house we used is of course free.  It’s a free group gift from Greymoon Designs (who has adorable houses!  I live in one (and own several!  lol!), and the group is only 50L to join.  When you join, you can grab a bunch of cute houses on the group gifts wall and here is the one we used (C-Side Cottage):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

A quick peek at the inside (but go see it in person eh?):

(btw the umbrella shaped lamp is from LISP Bazaar and is only 50L on market!)

The landscaping I used is mostly from Lunaria and the trees with sparkles in them are both free group gifts from Lunaria and that group is free to join.  I love her stuff!

PS Don’t let Aline fool you, she did half of the amazing decorating too!  It was an awesome team effort!

Well there you have it gang, another Caroline style post from me chock full of fab free style goodness!

The Wash Cart Sale – Encore

Snapshot

Yes my lovelies its that time already, time to head back to school and look toward fall fashions!

Thank goodness the Encore cart at the Wash Cart Sale is full of goodies to do just that. Every item on the cart is only 10L each. You could snap up the whole cart at these steal of a deal prices. The cart is packed full as you can see from outfits to nail huds that match the outfits. Since You couldn’t see this one dress too well I wore it for the pic so you could get a better view. Its a perfect little mesh homecoming or date nite dress, Stormy Weather.

Snapshot

I am adoring this cute mesh Encore sweater and skirt set, Marsala. The top and skirt can be worn separately. The icing on the cake are these polka leggings which include Slink, Belleza, Eva, Maitreya and Omega appliers and can also be worn separately. So you aren’t getting just 1 outfit for 10L you are getting several options with very nice texturing. To finsh off the look 1 or both of the nail huds are a great purchase. The nail huds are for Slink, Belleza, Eva, Maitreya and Omega nails, you get both finger nails and toe nails. 1 simple click and your nails are painted to match your new outfits.

Snapshot

Another great back to school fall look from Encore is the comfy Reflecting Pond mesh outfit which I can see getting alot of use out of. Again the top and pants are separate so more than 1 outfit here too and all for only 10L. The sweater has such a nice texture, making you wanna touch it.

 I must say you can’t go wrong with any of the outfits from the Encore cart they all looked fab when I tried them on. It was really hard to pick which ones to show you.

The Wash Cart sale just started and you have til Sept 16th to get all these great deals from the Encore cart and all the rest of the carts! LOL remember to bring your own cart to carry all your purchases, you are gonna need it.

Summer Heat

This is the time of year when if you live in the south, you want to wear as little as possible as often as possible. It’s just to darn hot outside! So for this post, Pru is wearing a vibrant pink bikini (and this one is mini!) by Holli Pocket that you can pick up for FREE at Fab Free Headquarters. I do think the little bit of white lace on the bikini top is a nice detail. This FREE gift at FFHQ comes in regular system layers, and includes an Omega applier.

To go over her itsy bitsy teeny weeny pink bikini bottoms, Pru is also wearing some super cute boy shorts by Pixy Stix. These shorties are a current gacha prize at the Oh My Gacha event. There are several patterns available at just 50 lindens per play at Oh My Gacha. I also love these kinds of shorts for just lazing around the house!

Last but not at all least, this striking toffee toned skin is a current VIP group gift from Birdy. The gift costs an initial 1 linden but the 1 linden is instantly refunded. If  you’re not already a Birdy group member, the one time join fee is 150 lindens, however there are 2 group gifts skins (this one included) and you can get some of the appliers to go with the skins for just 1 linden. This gift includes an applier for Naym Naym mouth, a tattoo freckle layer, face dew in 2 shades, 3 shades of contouring, 3 shades of gloss, eyeliner, as well as a no brows version of the skin.

Summer Dreams

Dreams of Summer

Hello Fab Free’rs! So I decided I’m starting my weekend early and return to a tropical resort I stumbled across called Las Islas! It really is gorgeous there, the perfect vacation spot. With the intention of relaxing and soaking up the sun, I picked up the perfect summer outfit at Fab Free Headquarters. This pretty yet casual skirt and halter-top combo is a FREE gift from Sin Original at FFHQ. I think the black and white gradient pattern is visually pleasing, and I can see wearing this outfit for sight seeing or even as a cover-up on the beach. The FREE gift includes a mesh top, and mesh skirt in several sizes, along with matching shoes (not shown) that have a color change hud for the shoes and feet. Get ready for the weekend with this great look from Sin Original for FREE at FFHQ!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Springing Into May, All Hopped Up On Freebies!

whc kauna jacket 1

May has started out wonderfully for me, and when you get a glance at this freebie, your May will become as great as mine. FaMESHed is a monthly event on SL, and this month was actually the first time I ever attended. Being a guy, shopping events have not been a major focus of mine (until now). I am kicking myself for that though since I laid eyes on this fantastic FREE leather overcoat from Kauna! The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat is supplied in both a black and a brown version and is finely textured. In fact, click on the pictures in this post and you can almost feel the leather with your fingertips. Prepare to fall in some serious love with this overcoat. It is given away FREE at FaMESHed to celebrate the third anniversary of the event and to promote Kauna’s excellent line of XIV suits and separates. If you have the money, you might well be compelled to do what I did and splurge on some matching components, like the XIV T-Shirt Pack: Plain & Striped and the XIV Shirt: Coffee pictured above. They are made to fit beautifully with the overcoat and are a very nice luxury if you have the coin.

whc kauna jacket 2

You might ask, “What if you have nothing to spend on Second Life’s great luxuries at the moment?” Well, if that’s the case, then this overcoat is still a must pick up. In addition to the components made to fit especially for this jacket, you can use other items you could already have in your inventory. Being a mesh overcoat, it might be somewhat tricky to find pieces to wear under it. With this stylish garment, I would heartily recommend system (layers) T-shirts, and (if you can find some) system dress shirts with sculpted collars. Both will look great with it. Even if you have to fiddle with the sculpted collars to find one that works well, you are going to look fantastic.

In the picture above, you can see I paired The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat with a FREE Group Gift from Gizza; a pink and black shirt that was offered a while back and is still available. I think it looks very nice in this outfit and is a great example of a freebie that works well. Gizza is a great place to pick up a bunch of Free Gifts since they keep their previous FREE Group Gifts out for an extended period. It would be an excellent first stop in a search for items to wear with this stylish overcoat.

Last, but far from least, I am wearing a very special set of eyes. The Mayfly – Luminous – Mesh Eyes in London Fog are a FREE Gift from one of the best eye creators in Second Life. They look fantastic and offer a wide variety of options controlled by a surprisingly robust hud, which allows variations in size, reflections, and shadowing (among other options). I love the way they look! While you are in eye collecting mode – which sounds super creepy now that I say it out loud – keep in mind that Mayfly also has a FREE Gift over at Fab Free Headquarters! The recently updated Mayfly – Deep Sky Eyes in Medium Onyx are gorgeous grey eyes. If you haven’t come by to pick them up yet, rest assured they are completely worth the trip. With all the great freebies and gifts this week, you’ll spring into May in style! From my little pixel heart to all of you, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Spring Green

Spring Green Final

Spring green sounds so cliche but I don’t care, over the years green has become one of my favorite colors, and it does remind me of spring! This cute top by Vivi feels especially spring-like with the faint floral pattern and the lovely shade of pale green. The top comes in yellow as well, and the set is a current FREE gift available at Fab Free Headquarters! These tops also have the added detail of some little buttons at the lower back, which I think is sweet and a little sexy. The tops can be worn on system layers, and include Omega Appliers, WowMeh, Lena, Lolas, and Slink appliers.

Spring is in the air at Nail Me! also, the April group gift is out. This FREE mani/pedi set (for Slink hands/nails) includes several pretty pastel options with a delicate dotted pattern. There is also an Omega applier included in the gift. My photo does not do the polish justice, so I included a copy of the vendor photo below. The Nail Me! group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss out on these. There are also several past group gifts still available, now’s your chance to get them all!

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Crazy Diamond

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m glad it’s Friday. 🙂 So I had a few more gifts and cheapies from The Skin Fair I wanted to show you. There are just a few days left, so they won’t be available for long. I also noticed a recent gift from Precious Designs out at Fab Free Headquarters, and I just couldn’t resist!

One of the best things about the addition of a “tattoo” layer for Second Life avatars is makeup! I love being able to transform the look of my avatar even further with a change in lip color or some added eye shadow. Sometimes even the smallest change can have a major impact.

That being said, this “Space Invader” lipstick is a 5 linden gift from Adored at The Skin Fair. The name suits it, it’s a bit glossy and has some bluish purple hues you don’t see in your average black lipstick. Next I picked up a fat-pack of smokey eye shadows from Zibska. The shadows are a FREE gift at The Skin Fair, and I love how they look layered over the smokey shadow already part of my skin. Lastly, MUA has this dollarbie pack of tattoo stars out at The Skin Fair as well. You can wear them over your left brow, right brow, or both like in the photo. I think it’s really awesome how these three items made such a dramatic difference in the look of my avatar.

Next, the cat-suit Pru has on is a Fabulously FREE gift from Precious Designs now available at Fab Free Headquarters. This fully mesh suit covers you from your chest to your toes in one piece, that’s right the “shoes” are part of it. Additionally, the outfit includes a color change hud so you can pick a color that fits your style best.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
