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!

Cozy Time

Coming Soon

Get Cozy

We saw some gifts at Cozyfest from Aline here. I have a few more from this great event to share today as I finally managed to get into the event! I am only showing free gifts available at Cozyfest.

  • My blush and freckles are gifts from theSkinnery. These gifts come in BOM layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads. This set gives you that perfect flushed frosty look you get in the cold.
  • The scarf is the gift from le fil casse. You can resize it and change it to many different colours with the colour hud included.
  • The headband is the gift from mintae! It’s a bit vintage and super cute.

Other Cozy Finds

I threw on a couple other gifts to complete this look.

  • The cute shoes are a group gift at StephaneL. These are the Giulia boots and they were released this winter. I love them! They fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. The StephaneL group costs 15L to join.
  • The cute hairstyle is a free group gift at Nova Hair Studio. Pick it up along with all their other gifts for free!

See you soon, FabFree!

Desert Rose

Desert Rose

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Desert Rose by Sting

Hey gang!

I wanted to share more of the Una gacha fatpack group gifts (gosh that’s a mouthful huh!) with you!  Just some really lovely stuff and right up my alley so I couldn’t resist!  So to do these photos I headed out to the desert, which was really lovely by the way albeit hot.  But the sultry atmosphere, Arabic music and decor are enough to put you in that perfect mood, well for me anyway, I have an obsession with Moroccan-ish decor and clothing.  I mean honestly, half of what I created for my store was these sort of exotic outfits and fabrics, they are just so beautiful.

Since I have spent so many years creating these, I am especially fond of other creators who do the same (with the exception of one, who shall remain nameless.), and they inspire me to create more, if I could only find the time!  But I digress!  I know you are waiting to hear about these lovely outfits and so now, without further ado….

The above outfit comes from the Vidhi fatpack, absolutely stunning set.  You get these as a free group gift and that group is free to join!  I haven’t even finished rummaging through all the fatpacks I brought home from them, they are sitting on my wardrobe floor.  Both of these sets are made to fit Maitreya only.  Below is the second set I am sharing with you and that is called the Iddun gacha fatpack.

Run over to Una and scoop up this collection of fatpacks, I guarantee that you will fall in love with them as I have!

Retro 

Coming Soon to Fab Free

You got to love all things retro: shiny skirts and tops, small (hopefully fake) fur jackets, a classic diner. This is all very ’50s and I love a swing back or roleplay of that era even if I wouldn’t have actually wanted to live in that time.

More goodies from Scandalize

Although Scandalize is no longer free to join, as Aline shared with you last week, there is a significantly reduced join fee for the group now. The Scandalize group now costs only 20 Linden to join. The Scandalize group gives you access to so many gifts and lucky board prizes so it is super worth it to join for this low cost if you missed the free group join period last week. Today I am showing off Krisia, one of their loveliest group gifts. This item is a fatpack and includes the skirt, top, belt, and fur jacket.

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

 

Enjoy, Fab Free!

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

YS&YS @Hallowen Shop & Hophttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugarplum/150/70/52

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

Luas @Halloween Shop & Hop http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurelian/165/28/53

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Pretty Bird

Beautiful Bird

Alright, I think it’s time for a little confession. I think I am a freebie addict. What?! You already knew? lol Of course you did. Thankfully for all of us, we’re in excellent company here. I went on a bit of a freebie shopping spree at The Free Dove recently. It’d been a while since I’d browsed through the goods there, and I found a thing, or three to share with you. It was really a bit difficult to stick to only three, but no one wants to have a ten page blog post so here we are! Along with my finds from LYBRA, and Shiny Stuffs at The Free Dove, I picked up two of the several group gifts at Toksik. As always, credits will be at the bottom, details in the middle. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

LYBRA

I am loving this little dress by LYBRA at The Free Dove. It is free, like everything at The Free Dove. You just have to wear the group tag. The Free Dove group is also free to join. I like the satiny texture of this dress, and the romantic look to it. I feel pretty wearing it. It includes a color change hud with a fatpack of 26 solid color choices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

Shiny Stuffs 

Among my several Second Life shopping addictions (Hey there are worse problems to have!) I definitely tend to collect makeup. Shiny Stuffs has several free gifts at The Free Dove, including a few that have somehow escaped my attention before now. The “Gekischa’s Kiss” lip applier set, and the “Blink!” eye shadow set. There are 10 lipstick shades in the Gekischa’s Kiss gift by Shiny Stuffs, and 9 eye shadow choices in the Blink! set. These freebies come in Catwa appliers only. Don’t forget your Free Dove group tag!

Toksik

I recently came across Toksik, and I have no  idea why I’ve not shopped at this store before. Their style is eclectic and has a touch of fantasy mixed with modern elements. Right now the Toksik store group is 99 linden to join and there are 9 total group gifts currently available. Two of the nine gifts are unisex. I picked up a set of darkly adorable “Dolly” nails, along with the unisex necklace that reads “Heartbreaker.” The nails have 6 color schemes to pick from, and the are adorned with pretty little accents like bows and pearls. The necklace is sized via touch menu, and has 6 metal colors to choose from.

Nail Sizes Included: Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful Dreamer

“All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.” ~Edgar Allan Poe

I’m fairly fickle on the ideas of dreams and their meaning, though I admittedly spend a decent amount of time daydreaming and often have vivid dreams when I sleep. I suppose in a way we all get to live a dream we create here in Second Life. So here’s to all the dreamers out there, I hope only the good dreams come true. For now, I can help with some dreamy free and inexpensive finds!

CryBunBun

Only in Second Life would I dream of being this cute in a leather and lace bra and panty set. Leather does not generally scream “delicate underthings” to me, but it sure does look gorgeous. The set I have on is a free gift at CryBunBun aptly named “Mercy.” It comes in this “moon” black version shown, and a “sun” white. No group is needed for this cute freebie. It may however only be available for a limited time!

Sizes Included: Signature Alice, Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Supernatural 

To go with my afore mentioned delicate underthings, I picked up an equally gorgeous necklace set at Supernatural. It was news to me that they have an entire wall of 75 linden fatpacks. The packs are mostly jewelry, however there are some accessories as well. I am wearing part of the Heidi set. This particular set comes in gold and silver, each with several jewel color choices. The sets have 3 necklaces that can be worn together. What I have on are 2 of the 3 in the silver and black set. I took a snap of the wall of 75 linden goodness at Supernatural. There’s so much to choose from, you’re bound to find something you like.

Mister Razzor

Finally, if you’re on the hunt for new ink, which I always am, Mister Razzor has three female tattoos for just 40 linden each. The tattoo I am wearing is a full body tattoo called “Bella.” This tattoo comes in Omega appliers and BOM/Classic System Layers. The BOM layers, and appliers give the option of full or 75% opacity. No group is needed for the 40 linden price.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, BOM/Classic Layers
