Bohemian

ALB_006 (2)

Hey FabFree! I am going to jump right in tonight, because I don’t want you to miss this limited time free offer, but I am going with a bohemian theme today and you will see why in just a few moments!

A Limited Time Free Group Join with many gifts @ Ana Lee Balut (ALB)

Ana Lee Baluti (also known as ALB) currently has a free VIP group join promotion, but I don’t know how long it will be open. Get in while you can! There are many gifts scattered around the shop which have floating titles like “enjoy” or “group gift”. There are also a lot of 1L or 0L free demos which are fully wearable around the shop. Here is the group join code:

secondlife:///app/group/a9f6833f-4355-31b3-02ec-f57195a0b9fd/about

VIP Group Gifts I am showing in my post today from ALB are:

  • The gypsy caravan- just head outside and click the caravan with your VIP tag on.
  • Inside the caravan, I have placed the gypsy sofa which is another group gift in the furniture section of the store. 
  • These great shoes – look for them in the shop on one of the upper floors by the shoes. They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies, as well as classic Fitmesh.

A Bohemian Shirt Dress

To top it off, I am also wearing a beautiful shirt dress by Ari-Pari, which only costs 1 Linden on the Changing of Colors Hunt. You can go hunting for it at Ari-Pari’s mainstore, and the hint to find the prize is, “Have you seen our amazing bloggers?”. 

Sizes Included 

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

Enjoy, FabFree!

Free Furniture Pack for New Residents!

dench_001

Hey Fabbies!

I am still here!  Yours truly has been dealing with some rather hairy real life issues (still am!), but I haven’t forgotten you all!  My computer time is limited at the moment but I am hoping to be back to normal sooner rather than later!

So tonight I snuck in to show you something really special for those new to second life!  Amanda at Dench Designs has put together a free bundle of furniture and decor that new residents can pick up at her shop.  This starter pack is available free for any new residents under 30 days, just go to the shop, click the board to the right of the welcome desk and collect all this furniture and more!  Aside from the items I have shown here, there is also a fireplace, bathroom set up and campfire!

Amanda mentioned to me that she will be continuing to add more goodies to this pack as time goes on.  In looking at the sign she has up at the shop, she is already adding some garden goodies as well as a cute vanity for the bedroom area!

Even if you are older than 30 days, Dench Designs has some amazing finds, and all of the prices are super affordable and you will get well made items with lots of great poses!  Her Halloween store is a blast and I am sure I will be visiting that soon, since Halloween will be here before we know it!  (I’m not ready for the summer to end!!)

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.

decor_009

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!

decor_003

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.

decor_001

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?):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

(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!

Fairy Magic for your Garden

Coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

The fun and excitement of hunting for fairies and collecting beautiful gifties in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt continues!  (It continues until July 22!), and today I am sharing with you this gorgeous (my photo doesn’t do it justice!) giftie that you can get at Dreamland Designs for the hunt.

This twinkles and sparkles in person, which I couldn’t capture in my pic so you just have to get it and see it in world.  I am loving this in my garden!  It’s got a bench with animations, so you can hang out by yourself, with friends or even make it a romantic hang out with that someone special! (wink wink!)

This is a 1L prize that you don’t want to miss!

Vintage Me!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I’m all about the vintage/retro stuff.  Those of us old enough (cough!) to remember those days know they had a feel.  The 70’s had a feel, the 80’s had a feel.  Somehow once the 90’s started, the era’s started blending together (for me at least), they didn’t have *such* a distinction as the earlier decades (I’m barely old enough to remember the 60’s, but I know that and the 50’s, 40’s, etc also had a feel of their own).

So in my pic, I’ve got a bit of the sixties *and* seventies (can you distinguish?), thanks to the Vintage Fair!  Which is a lot of fun by the way.

The Awesome Shirt

This is screaming 77-79 to me.  Back in the day I had these sorts of shirts with band names on them (The Police for one.)  This is made by The Annex at The Vintage Fair, there are several different designs for you to choose from and they will set you back only 50L.    It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

The Decor

The Stay Wild Moon Child Poster by InkMe is from a gacha that is only 50L at The Vintage Fair.  Not sure the era on that one but as you saw in my previous post, I love all things celestial, so …. gimme!

Woodstock poster behind me, sixties, natch.  1969 to be exact.  You can get that on market from What Next for only 50L

I’m not showcasing the other things but just to give you a rundown of the era….

Pants – very seventies, obv.

The chair to my left (was a gift from Aline!  Thank you!!!!) is very sixties and my favorite color, pink!

Lastly the floppy hat (I bet you aren’t surprised to hear I have one just like this in rl!) is very late sixties, early seventies.

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. 😉

LORIEN SPACE NAILS

Have fun hiding, FabFree!
