1001 Nights

Dance of the Elephant

Mirage Treasure Co. is one of my very favorite stores.  I love all the exotic, Arabian, Moroccan, Eastern Indian, etc. décor.  I love the clothes too, it’s something I used to make a lot of in my shop, Shanti.

In my latest visit to Mirage, I decided to delve a bit into their group and free group gifts.  The group costs 100L to join, but there is an entire underground cave with hidden goodies, both décor and clothing for you to find.  There are also lucky chairs with some absolutely stunning prizes!  That’s what I am showing you today.

The dress I am wearing above (don’t you just *love* those colors!!) is one of the outfits you can get on the group lucky chairs (did I mention they also have outfits for the guys too!), it also comes with a gorgeous head jewel.  It fits:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The furniture below is just a handful of gorgeous furniture and items for your home that you can get on the lucky chairs.  The couch and chairs are color change, so they are great to mix and match!  If you are looking for an exotic atmosphere for your home, look no further than Mirage Treasure Co.

Coming soon

Hanging With the Wild Things

Oubliette, Dark Salvation, A&A

Squee! I have a few more fun hunt items to show you today. I was excited to find a couple of hunts I hadn’t done yet. And they both continue until mid-August! I was feeling a bit goofy so I decided to hang with some of my wild friends.

Starting at the top – From The 60s Event, A&A’s Carlotta hair is one of many free gifts from the store. I love the Summer Colors hud. So many colors to choose from!

My top makes a statement that fits me so well. Oubliette’s free gift at The 60s Event is a cropped tee with the wording, “I, myself am strange & unusual”. So me, lol.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Freya

Last, my playful shorts are from Dark Salvation. Named the Daeshona Fight Shorts, these are a free gift for the free Fitmesh Fanatics group.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique
  • Legacy
  • Belleza Freya, Venus, & Isis

So a bop & a hop here and you can find a number of cute things.

XOXO,

Cre

All About the Hair!

No_Match No_Sea GG July

I have a quickie for ya’ll today. My long wavy locks, No_Sea, is the latest group gift at No_Match. The No_Match group has a $50L join fee that is money well spent. Once you’re in the group you’ll get frequent group gifts and notices for sales.  There are also older group gifts on the 2nd floor. The designer participates in several shopping events often providing gifts.

I think just about everyone can find something to their liking there. Many of the styles are unisex. The guys are covered also.

Go have a look…

Cre ❤

P.S. Pay no attention to the bodysuit. I lost my notes & I can’t remember what I was wearing. Oh well, getting old is not for the faint of heart!

Live Your Dream

beige_011

Hey gang!

Back today to show you this gorgeously adorbs dress from Mangula!  You might have seen this on the blog already because it is a new Fab Free Group Gift!  I fell in love with it when I saw it and I just knew I had to blog it.  Just wear your fab free group tag (the group is free to join, of course!) and scoop this baby up!  I am usually a fan of the bright colors or pastels, but this earth tone just had such a softness to it, I fell in love.  Also, it can be worn with or without the sleeves.

This cute dress fits:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky

You can see all of our Fab Free group Gifts on the group gift page.  It’s a great place to find awesome freebies!

Hey gang!

I’ve got a Caroline style post for you today, with a whole list of goodies!  😀

Let’s not beat around the bush shall we?  (where exactly does that expression come from?  Beating around a bush to… chase something out?  idk!  lol)

Get this look for 6L!  Yes You Heard Right!

My cute top is a 1L gift from Bold Llama for the Around the Grid Hunt.  If you do not want to hunt, you can purchase it for 25L at the sign.  Its got a lotus on it which I love.  It fits:

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

More Magic from Promagic!

Promagic KishMish Outfit & Dua Heels

It’s a day for chilling out and being lazy. Well at least for me it is. How about you? Of course there is always something happening in SL where I can hang out & dance or go in search of more fabulous things to share with you.

More Magic from Promagic

I was recently enticed to join the free Promagic group after seeing all of the lovely gifts offered (it really didn’t take much to entice me). BTW, there are about 100 gifts set out for VIPS. Vibrant colors & cute styles are reasons I love this store!

Today I am wearing the Kishmish top & shorts. The hud has plenty of options to mix and match (or not). It’s a little girly & frilly & perfect for summer. I paired the Dua heels (another group gift @ Promagic originally shown by Aline here) with the outfit. The most difficult thing about wearing this is choosing the colors I want for the day!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Belleza Freya
  • SLink HG

Be Your Change

Every once in a while I “shake up” my groups. I mean I join new groups and leave a few. Give it a try and see what you get.

Happy Shopping & Grouping!

I Feel FABULOUS!!

Rapture July GG; Promagic Pride Heels; Fabia Ira;

A couple of years ago I was at a shopping event wearing my FabFree tag and got an IM from someone in the crowd “You’re not that fabulous”. Au contraire mon frere!! I am always fabulous in SL!

I bring you news of a new group gift from Rapture. It’s a gown; it’s a skirt & top; it can be whatever you want it to be. Rapture has spectacular styles that will make you feel like you’ve stepped off the runway at a Paris fashion show. A high slit shows off your left leg nicely. You will feel so sexy when wearing this.

The Rapture group is $590L to join. Yes, I know this seems a hefty price. BUT for that join price you get
:::20% OFF new releases first 3 days:::
:::Monthly gifts:::
:::VIP only store sale:::
:::5% store credit on purchases:::
So you really get your join fee back within 1 – 2 months just with group gifts. In addition, there are frequently gifts of store credit.

Happy Shopping!

Different Drummer

Snapshot_021

As you might have noticed by now, I am an eclectic, off-center, quirky kinda girl.  The outfits I choose might not be the norm, or rather, the combinations I put together for outfits might not be the norm, but someone has to blog for the outcasts.  Those of us who walk to the beat of our own drummer and don’t fit in with the mainstream.

In Second Life as in real life, I’m kind of a loner.  I’m borderline hermit sometimes!  Only those who take the time to get to know me, get to see the quirky sparkle I keep hidden from most of the world.  I’m quite used to people looking at me like I am something that just dropped in from outer space that they aren’t quite sure if they approve of.  (ok that might be over use of the word “quite”).

I’ve never joined the throngs of people who hang out at clubs, or have big families in sl, I’ve mostly wandered by myself and being the way I am, its been good most of the time.  I’ve had those lonely moments we all get from time to time.

And until I became a part of fab free I’ve never had a group of friends in sl, oh sure I had a couple of short lived friends when I first started (2008!) but that was just for a couple of weeks because I worked as a dancer as a lot of us did when we started (and I was *terrible* at it and hated it!  I’m horrible at being phony) and that’s where I had the friends.

Now with Fab Free, I have a wonderful circle of ladies that I am so proud and honored to call my friends and sisters.  The awesome thing is, we are all sort of quirky and off center in our own ways and so we are all very accepting of one another.  It’s a very happy place for my soul.

I know I went off on a bit of a tangent there, but this outfit was an odd mix and it just got me thinking.  It’s an odd mix but I love the way it fits together.  I’m also a girl who loves hats in both worlds, and I loved these boots.  😉  But I know, shush now Arielle, quit rambling and tell us about the freebies n such!  ok ok!

Now back to our regularly scheduled program!

This cute dress I am sporting is a 1L find for the Around the Grid 9 Hunt created by Pearl’s Treasure Chest or PTC.  This hunt goes from July 13 to September 30 (I’m not ready for fall yet!!).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

My boots are from MOoH! They are a free Third Life Group Gift and that group is 10L to join.  They fit:

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

I hope your Monday morning is going as well as can be expected gang!  I’ll be back with more fun freebies very soon!

FabFree Forest Hunt 7-2021 Telsiope and Sissy Bar

Happy Weekend Fabulous readers! The past couple of months has brought a whirlwind of events and hunts exploding with gifts and bargains. If you’re looking for something to do, go hunting for the lavish gifts in the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. It ends on July 22 so get out there & hunt! Check the hunt pics & hints here

The lovely, ethereal gown pictured on the left comes to us from The Sissy Bar – it only costs 2L. It made me think of fairies so I paired it up with these stunning wings from Telsiope’s Couture.

I liked these wings so much that I kept them on and put on the rest of the Good Fairy outfit from Telsiope’s Couture. I adore the styling and colors of the outfit, which only costs 1L.

Last but not least is this gorgeous free hair from Princess Stuff. Normally you would think – little blue haired old ladies, lol. Not with this one! It’s a really nice style and can be casual or elegant.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!
