Sunset

Sunset

Good evenin’, FabFree. This is going to be a quick post because I have more of this beach resort to explore… maybe get my dance on. 😉  Yesterday I showed you the awesome little bikini I found at the Miix Event and today I was off to another event. This time it’s The Gacha Life. This rounds theme is the ‘great outdoors’ and this beautiful maxi skirt certainly makes me want to wander along a beach at almost sunset. 

This is the “Karim” outfit from Sexy Style and it’s their free gift for the event. You get the lovely skirt and the sexy crocheted top both in the gift. I really love the hot pink almost fuchsia color of the top. It’s just so summery. When you join the free Gacha Life group, you can pick up this wonderful gift and all the others from almost every booth. 

Oh… and play some Gacha too! 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus (There is no top for Freya, only the skirt)
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

This round of The Gacha Life runs until April 30th.

Monday is my SUN day

Monday is my SUN day

Hey FabFree. This afternoon I am enjoying a typical north country Spring. I.E. It’s cold and rainy. Really coooold and rainy. Which of course, makes me think of the beach with it’s warm sands and gentle waves and soft breezes. That’s logical… right?! Oh well, it’s Juli logic! Plus, while I was at the Miix Event I found a super cute little free swim suit so maybe I had the beach on my mind already.

As Aline told you here, the Miix Event is full of free gifts right now. Like this awesome two piece suit from Impact. This is the “Mellisa Bikini” and it’s one of those free gifts. You get a HUD with ten colors for the shorts and fourteen colors for the top. There are so many cute patterns and colors and it all so marvelously mix and match… I had a hard time figuring out what to wear! Such a good problem to have, am I right?!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

While I was wandering round picking up freebies and group gifts and all, I stopped in at Mina Hair and got a good surprise. This gorgeous hair style was up as a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. You can join the SLF&O group for free and pick this and tons of other gifts across the Grid. This style, “Alexa” comes with the “Essentials” color HUD giving you a nice range of natural colors from white to blonde to brunet to deep black.  I do love getting such great quality hair for my hair obsession. I don’t know how long this style will be offered for the SLF&O group or even how long it’s been up… but if you want to add it to your hair obsession hurry over and pick it up.

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,

❤ Arielle

Wandering

Wandering

Hey FabFree! If you haven’t heard of “Wanderlust Weekend”, I am here to give you the big scoop. Wanderlust features really high quality shops and designers offering some of their absolute best items for just 50L. That’s less than most Gacha pulls and there’s no element of chance here. You can easily find items that would normally cost hundreds of Lindens on sale for 50L. I once picked up a piece of landscaping décor and saw it Monday back at it’s regular price of 550L! So you should really check this out!  Here on their website you can see the pictures of the items being offered and get the LMs or use the HUD that updates each Wanderlust weekend.

I had to go grab this gorgeous new hair, Molly, from Mina first thing. I love the cascade and the hint of movement in it. Mina always has such good hair! You can get Blondes, Browns, Reds, Grays and Pastels color packs, each for the special 50L price.

Next on my ‘wandering’ was one of my favorite designers: Oubliette! So of course I had to go there too. I just love this dress! This is ‘Aurora’ and you can pick from three colors, the Lavender Galaxy I’m wearing, Frost and Midnight. Each for the special price. Heck, you can buy all three colors for less than most dresses!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

So grab your HUD and get to wandering! The Wanderlust Weekend only lasts until Sunday midnight then poof, it’ll fade away.

Something about Spring

Something about Spring

Hey there, FabFree. Are you into the Spring season yet? I know some of our readers are actually going into Autumn so all of our Spring weather ramblings must sound sorta out of place. But… ya gotta grow where you’re planted and right now that means Spring in all it’s glory.

The Grid is celebrating Spring with a ton of Spring themed Hunts. Today’s hunt included a very nice men’s shirt and jeans so I grabbed my Gabriel and off we went. The Hop Along Hunt was a fun quick Hunt over at MystRie and it netted us both these snazzy Spring outfits.

My maxi dress, “Softly Spring’ is a lovely wash of watercolors with pale pinks and a floral pattern. It looks like something I’d have in my real life closet! Beautifully made, it’s the perfect addition to my SL closet. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Gabriel’s knit sweater over a dark gray collared shirt is just different enough to be eye catching. And I love the pale lavender color. Who says guys can’t wear pastel? The prize includes a pair of jeans as well (Not Shown)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geanni
  • SLink Male

Hey There FabFree! Welcome to another week of freebies and Hunts and us girls ( And Gabe! 😉 workin’ hard to get you the awesome-ness on the cheap! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and y’all are enjoying the chocolate being on sale. I, personally, am enjoying all these great new Hunts taking off all over the Grid. 

I am hunting a new hunt for me this Monday: The Cheeky Monkey Hunt.  I had a chuckle over the name then saw allllll the great prizes and grabbed my hunting shoes and took off.  My favorite has to be this gorgeous corset plus skirt from Blonde Queen.

This is the “Spring Roses Corset” and you can have it for just a little hunting and one little Linden. Now this might look like a very short dress… but that’s only from the front. It puts the cheeky in the Cheeky Monkey Hunt, if ya know what I mean.  Still, it such a lovely piece I’m saving it for those times with my special someone.

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun

Hello hello, FabReaders! I’m still enjoying the Spring and everything it brings. Of course, it’s easier to say that here on the Grid where all these beautiful flowers and trees don’t make pollen! In real life, we may have the windows open but we’re also starting to sniffle a lot.

Spring also brings the need for some fresh new clothes for our fresh new season. Happily, I found what must be the perfect little dress for Spring at one of my absolute favorite designers: Poeme. This is the “Check Me Out” mini from Poeme and you can add this beauty to your closet for free. “Check Me Out” is the current gift for our fantastic FabFree Group members. So you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag. Oh, and of course, the FabFree Group is free to join.  While you’re at Poeme, ‘check’ out all the other group gifts and lucky boards and cool stuff too!

Hello April

Hello April

Hey FabFree! Happy April! Can you believe this year is sprinting by so quickly. Seems like just a day or two ago we were all about Christmas gifts and now the Easter Bunny is hoppin’  right along. And what better way to usher the bunny and Spring in than a bunch of new Hunts?

I started with the April Hunt and two of my favorite designers!  My new Spring pink little dress is from The Sissy Bar. The “April Dress” is awash in cute flowers and makes me think of nothing but bees buzzing and Spring breezes. Like everything I’ve had from The Sissy Bar, ‘April’ is beautifully patterned and so well made right down to the details. Plus, it’s just 1L when you find the little blue butterfly it’s hiding in.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy + Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya + Maitreya Petite
  • SLink – Hourglass, Hourglass Petite

You can never go wrong with good shoes. So when I saw Lindy’s was offering a super cute pair of flats, I was all over it. I love Lindy’s shoes. They are always perfectly made, fit exactly and always sooo cute. The “Lae” flats in pink are no exception to the rule. And how awesome is it that they match the ‘April’ dress??  Like they were made for each other.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The April Hunt runs from today till the 30th of April, so you have plenty of time to go scoop up all the goodies!

Hurry Up

Hurry Up

Soooo as ya’ll know… I’m kinda slow on the uptake sometimes. I tend to just drift along not paying a whole lot of attention. Which means I miss things when they first appear on the scene. It’s a quirk… not a flaw… right?  Anyway, it means I missed this sexy little halter top when it first came out as the Fabulously Free Group gift way back in June. Yeah… June. But as I was perusing the Gift page I saw it and got all excited because I get to show it now with our temps warming and Spring blooming and a certain elf’s thoughts are starting to to turn beach-ward.

This is the “Lisa” loose halter top from Fatal Fashion and you can pick up this beauty for free when you wear your FabFree Group Tag. And of course the FabFree Group is free to join! I love the chain details that set this top apart from most halter tops. A little bling goes a long way.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

While you’re at Fatal Fashion picking up your halter top, check out all the other group gifts and you’ll find my new denim shorts. The “Ripped Jeans shorts” will only cost you 0L to pick up too. Just join the free group Avangardista to grab them.  Avangardista is another freebies, Group gifts, sales and promos group much like Teleport HUB or SLF&O. And anything that helps us find those goodies is a good find, right?

What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

Hello again, FabFree. As I am sure you may have seen, we have had several new designers join our growing ranks of Fabulous Designers for the FabFree Group. It’s always exciting to welcome new talent and when one such new designers has gifts for the men… it’s doubly exciting.

Which brings us to Dreams. While Dreams is not exclusively male clothing it does a very nice selection of well made items. Simply head upstairs to the men’s department and browse.  Their Group is free to join as well and there are group gifts for both men and women.  The “Uriel” shirt I’m sporting today is the gift for the FabFree Group so it’s yours for the asking once you join up. Which is, of course… free.  Be aware, the vender will ask for 1L and immediately refund it. Uriel comes with a HUD for six colors and while the store logo is embroidered on the chest… it’s subtle and not distracting.  I highly recommend taking a moment to explore this newest FabFree designer.

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Exmachina
  • Legacy
  • Nardcotix
