Chat Time

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey FabFree! My holiday season is officially here for me, and I celebrated by setting up this great patio spread by Noveny in my backyard. I invited my good friend Orion to come hang with me and watch the sunset and chat the night away together! Orion is a dedicated freebie finder and you will often find her chatting away and helping others in the FabFree chat in world.

Free Decor from Noveny!

One of our FabFree designers, Noveny, is incredibly generous. You can get this whole outdoor furniture set by Noveny for free at Ajuda SL Brasil. Orion tipped me off about this awesome find! I was really amazed by how many items are included in this free set, and the items are so gorgeously textured and detailed. This is the perfect gift to bring in summer this year! The items shown in my photo that are included in the freebie are:

  • The grey outdoor sectional sofa. The blue pillows are included, and it includes and it includes PG singles and couples animations.
  • The grey chair. The blue pillows are included, and it includes PG singles and couples animations.
  • The large potted plant which is beside me. See below for another detailed photo of the potted plant. There are lovely little stone pebbles inside the basket-weaved pot.
  • The small round coffee table.
  • The round-shaped end table.

I added a some more decor around the patio, and the three plants on the coffee table in the centre are also a free gift . These are “Vintage Pot Can” plants, which are a free group gift at Noveny’s mainstore. Just join their free group and pay the vendor 1 L (it will be refunded automatically).

Wind Ready

Wind Ready

I would most likely be aging myself if I started ranting about the hot pink and purple wind breaker I had when I was young.  There was this whole thing about being protected against the wind that made its way into fashion the form of pants and jackets, and I just want to say that that was a *moment*.  Apparently, that moment is kind of making a comeback since I’m feeling pretty wind protected today!

My Fave!

Every month, I wait with bated breath for the latest Amitomo gacha release at Kustom9.  I’m never disappointed by the colourful offerings, and this month is no exception.  People often ask me if I’m paid to review them, or if I’m given these gachas, but I can solemnly swear that I am not.  I REALLY do love them and pay my own Lindens to get them.  I always play them with the bargain hunter mentality – as few plays as possible, and see what happens.  In just three pulls (I SWEAR!) I got the rare hair, this cool purple dress and the awesome jacket (sized for Maitreya) to go over all.  At just 69L per pull, you’ll inevitably walk away with something that you can make an outfit out of for very little dough.

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Trompe Loeil - Nesting Beds for The Arcade September

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

One Big Runway

KS @ Girls Heaven

Took the little man out for a stroll this morning and came upon a modeling agency!  Saw it was mostly male clients, but little man wanted me to inquire and so I did.  Unfortunately they only take on human male clients and my little man Chi was a no go.  😦  I assured him that doesn’t make him any less appealing as a canine model and that he is very handsome indeed! (You can get your very own handsome little man (or little lady!) at Jian at the Cheeky Chihuahuas Gacha, only 50L).  The key is below:

I, meanwhile, am here to also show you this cute group gift from Lamb (hair).  There are a bunch of group gifts over at Lamb, their group is free to join, so go grab some cute hair whydoncha?!

And so, like I told my little man, as long as you feel good in what you wear (or au naturel like my little man  lol) and you walk through life like it is one big runway, you are a model baby!

Until next time, happy Sunday!

Anand

coming soon

Sometimes things just fall together.  That’s exactly what happened this time after I visited the 77th Street Event and found this sexy little dress by Faida.  It was only 7L!  Can you even imagine???  In fact, there are a BUNCH of vendors there that have an item for 7L for you, so its practically bliss!  The title of this post, Anand, is Sanskrit for bliss.

My headdress is from Ayashi and it’s a 75L gacha (I have been trying to get the rare hair from there, but it keeps eluding me!), the necklace from Fabia is a 75L gacha as well.

Anyhoo, the dress comes in:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Tonic Fine & Fine Mini

Just as a side note, does anyone else feel reminded of Mary Poppins with my shadow in this picture?  lol.  If only I had worn a skirt!  No offense Mary Poppins, but I think my umbrella is much cuter than yours!

Sayanara gang!  The quest for freebies and bahgains continues…

Unicorn Guardian

Unicorn Guardian

I love to create characters for my photos.  In second life you can become anything you want to!  (well, that is true in real life too, but not to the fantasy extent that it is in second life!)  It really helps when you have so many wonderful creators making such amazing things for us to use in our photos.  Take for instance my photo today.  MOoH! has a 50L Unicorn Gacha with these amazing unicorns in it.  Some are display, some are animated and have poses, all of them are beautiful!  Which prompted me to put on this lovely gown from Flowerdreams (via the Swank Event which runs from the 7th of each month to the end of the month) and take some unicorn photos (what else?).

As I said, these unicorns can be found in a happy little gacha over at MOoH!.  The key is below:

Unicorns2Key

Sooo cute right?  The pose I am doing comes with that particular unicorn (the white animated standing one).

Surreal Serenade

Surreal Serenade

“Music is the strongest form of magic.”
Marilyn Manson

I never know where my blogging adventures are going to take me, and that’s lots of fun.  I never know what form my blog photos will take and there are no limits to the imagination.  Today they have taken me on a magical, musical journey into the mystical fairy realms of wonder and light.  I found this gorgeous apparel at Planet29 in a gacha (75L) from FenDuDu (Flower Fairy Gacha).  This is Flower Fairy Streamline B #2.  It is a sky blue, very pretty! I’ve circled it below in the key.  It is one size.

Screen Shot 2021-04-05 at 11.04.11 AM

I realize there is a lot going on in this photo, so lets not ignore the elephant piano in the room.  This piano is more than just a photo prop, it plays music and it animates you along with the music!  It is a very cool item from Culprit that you can find at Uber.  It was essential to my ethereal magical mystery tour, per se.  😉  Background is just a bunch of my own stuff I threw together and other magical surprises can be found in my credits list below.

Next time I will just be appearing as myself.  😛  Look out!
