The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Weekend Sweetness

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Sometimes on the weekend you just wanna lay around and feel sexy.  Or maybe just lay around and feel cute in general. ORRRR you are maybe a party animal and you just need something to wake up in and maybe try to look like you don’t have a hangover.  Whatever the case may be, I gotcha covered!  I found this cute little number (your tushie is mostly out in the back) for just those purposes (not to be confused with porpoises!  I’m sure dolphins aren’t really bothered by what we are wearing!) for free at the Sugar Dolls lucky Boards.  There is no group required, so yay!  And they have a number of cute goodies for you to grab when your letter comes up.

This one fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Happy weekend!

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

When Bloggers go Bad

When Bloggers go Bad

Ah, sorry to say it does happen, bloggers do go bad.  When the deadlines become too much, when your creativity has been squashed away by demanding designers and events…. sometimes a girl just *snaps* (or a guy!) and there goes poor Teddy, who never said a mean thing to her in his entire life….  it’s so sad….

Kidding!  I’m kidding gang!  No teddy bears were harmed in the writing of this blog post!  That’s not really blood, its just ketchup!!!!  And its just a rubber knife I am wielding!  I couldn’t even cut a tag off a new dress with that thing!

It’s just me getting ready for my Halloween photos.  I have to say, Halloween is my very favorite time of the year in second life.  There are always haunted carnivals and zombies chasing you, and sometimes really grisly stuff that makes me squeal and squirm at my desk and I wonder what some people are actually thinking because it starts to borderline on just a wee bit *too* demented, you know?  But all in all it’s a lot of fun and I love to dress up and take scary pictures for a month or so, if you want to see some of my old Halloween creations just check my Flickr, I will keep it tame (er!) on Fab Free of course, but in my other blogging world… bwahahaha!!!!!  Look out!

However, I do have a reason for this post (don’t I always???), I’ve been continuing the treacherous Twisted Hunt and came up with this cute and slightly sinister outfit at Maya’s Meshy Stuff.  The shirt has a little evil (also knife wielding) bunneh on it.  It’s very INFP, the cute but can be scary thing, and I fully embrace it!  This is as I said previously a totally free hunt (but you gotta work for stuff!) and the top and skirt were hidden separately.  It’s a fun hunt to get you into that twisted spooky frame of mind for Halloween time.

This outfit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Spookily yours,

Wandering Wonderland

coming soon

B2K Design is a new to me store, but I am so glad I discovered it!  Not only do they have some super cute clothes, but they have a wall of retirement outfits for 50L each!  I picked up this verrrryyyyyy sweet little dress there.  It’s so cute and I want to send y’all shopping for it and the other 50L goodies so let’s not dilly, shall we?

This dress and the other items as I said are only 50L each on the retirement wall, and there is no group needed to get the discount, anyone can buy them.  This dress fits:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD that gives you a choice of 6 lovely textures, I absolutely adored this Sakura one.  When I wore it I just had to find someplace whimsical to photograph it!

I paired it up with a very unique and pretty eyeliner I got at Ramilla.  It is a free group gift and that group is free to join.

Happy weekend all!

Divine Wisdom of the Earth Goddess

Ancient Wisdom

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!

Going Green

green_004

Happy weekend gang!

I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, I’ve had to move my store and I’m also hopefully moving home in second life and anyone who has moved in world knows what an undertaking it is!  Not only finding the right place but then getting everything moved and set back up!  Whew, I tell ya it’s enough to wear a girl out!

Fortunately, if you are feeling worn out, I have just the cure!  A sexy minidress for only 15L, plus free hair and shoes!  Woohoo!

It’s so Easy being Green!

I honestly don’t understand why Kermit sings about how difficult it is being green, I found it quite easy when wearing this sexy little number from Witchcraft that I found over at The Bundles Autumn Event.  They have freebies galore but I was drawn to the bright and funky color of this cute minidress that Witchcraft had out for only 15L.  Well, that’s practically free, right?  This adorbs dress fits:

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

The Bundles Event runs until the 25 of September so you have some time to browse and enjoy and scoop up all the wonderful free goodies celebrating Bundles 5th Birthday (no group required!), and also some awesome deals!

These scintillating boots are a free group gift from Promagic.  Their group is free to join, and these fit Maitreya.  They come in a bunch of pretty colors so you can mix and match with lots of outfits.

Lastly, but soitenly not leastly, my hair is a free group gift from Moon.  Their group is currently free to join and you get a whole lot of group gift hairs.

Hokey dokey kiddos, that’s all from me for this time!

Melty but Yummy!

ice cream final

Hey gang!

This ice cream cone reminds me of growing up, it was always so hot in the summer when the ice cream man came around, that you had to eat your ice cream fast or it would just melt away in record time leaving you with nothing but a puddle!  That said a soft serve cone with chocolate ice cream is just what I can use after a long day of shopping.

So thanks to a tip from Aline, I scooped up this absolutely adorbs dress free at The Makeover Room Event.  It is a free group gift from Entice, and the group is free to join (Makeover Room Group).  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

So super cute and versatile, I feel like this can be for a casual date or even something more fancy.  Now if I don’t drip ice cream all over mine, I’ll tuck this into my closet (inventory!) for another time, it’s a keeper!

Happy almost the weekend gang!

Pajama Party

jammies_023

Hey gang!

I’m back with more goodies from the Fifty Lindens Friday Birthday Bash!  We have all been gushing about this event because, well, there is just SO much to gush about!  The freebies, the 50L deals, the freebies….  did I mention the freebies and the deals?  Yeah those!

Party like its 2999

The FLF Birthday bash has just been so much fun to shop at, and I need to stop going back because I keep finding more things I need for only 50L!  Like these super cute pajamas by Aleutia (I bought a second pair too!)  I have a sub folder in my clothing folder that is specifically for lounge wear.  Anything I find that is great to snuggle into when it’s been a long day, or if I am feeling out of sorts mood-wise, I go for this folder.  You don’t find a *lot* of super cute lounge-y jammies in world, so when ya do, if you are a snuggly jammies loving girl like yours truly, there is but one thing to do… grab em!  These cute pajama sets are only 50L a pop and there are so many cute colors.

The really sweet skin I am wearing, it’s from Glam Affair and I also had it on in my last post, it’s called Enni and I got it for 50L as well.  I’m wearing it on Lelutka EvoX Nova Head.

I know what you are thinking…

Now of course I brought you freebies too.  These earrings I also had on in my last post (It’s been that kind of couple real life weeks gang, so bear with me!), are super cute and they are free (just join the free Fifty Lindens Friday Group for the free gifts) from Andore.

My hair (I love the cap!) is a free gift from Elikatira called Chamonix.  It is part of a freebie pack that has two other hairs as well.

Don’t forget the FLF Birthday bash runs until September 3rd.  The traffic there has slowed down, so you should have no trouble getting in!

Now I feel better I am getting back on track!  I hate being off my groove!  That’s real life for ya!

Here’s hoping y’all got a great groove goin’ on! (Groove is in the heart!)
