Accessorize

Coming Soon

An Accessories & Hair Day

Today is an accessories day. I love adding little trinkets to my AVI, and it’s something I’ve developed a love for over time. Sometimes it takes for forever to make that necklace or earring to fit just right, but it’s so worth it! I hope you all enjoy little trinkets, items, and jewels you can use to accessorize your AVI because that’s what I’m mainly showing today! I will also later announce how to get a whole LOAD of free hair. 

The Perfect Cross

My necklace is a gorgeous cross necklace which is a free group gift at Finer Threads. This necklace is so detailed. It’s a must have! It only comes in one colour, but the shine of the gold on this chain is stunning. 

Little Mandalas

The gorgeous earrings are also a free group gift at Zaara. simply join the free group and the earring are yours in gold and silver. They look like little Mandalas, which I love.  

Did someone say Functional Demo?

Have you ever heard of a functional or wearable demo? It’s basically a gift, disguised as a demo! What it means is there is no demo box attached to the item, so you can wear it all you like. The beautiful hair I have on is a functional demo from Alli&Ali Designs. I grabbed it on the Marketplace. In fact, Alli&Ali Designs has almost every hair up on their marketplace store with a “functional demo”- a free gift of each hair in one colour only. The colours shown in the ads are the same colour your receive with the free gift. This is a very generous offer from Alli&Ali Designs. The full version (paid) include more colours, but to make the demo fully wearable is a treat! Since Alli&Ali Designs has over 900 hairstyles in their marketplace store for both men and women, so you can get a LOT of one-colour hairs for free. I’m still loading up and picking what I want.  😉 The lovely hair I am wearing today is called Viola and it comes in red. Check out this link to see the demos of all the hairs which are fully wearable in the colour shown in the ad. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Where the Magic Happens

Coming soon to fab free!

Well hello there peeps!

Yes you guessed right, this is indeed where the magic happens. This is my in world blog writing place. It is a mirror version of my real life blog writing place which also has a pink desk and accessories, a pink gaming chair (though this in world one looks a lot cushier than my real life one, which after only a year and a half, has begun to fall apart, sigh.)…. my in world one also has a better view, as the real life one faces…. a wall. Lol. Nonetheless I have tried to make them mirror one another, as the me in second life is just like the me in real life.

Let’s Get this Party Started

So here I am about to sit and try to get as much done without getting distracted as I can. You might think my cup holds some coffee, but true to my oddball-ish-ness I can’t even stand the smell of coffee. So if it is cold out, this cup might hold some yummy Starbucks hot chocolate (which is ah-mazing!) or on most days lately, my newly discovered caffeinated water. I throw a little flavor packet in it, some ice, and I am good to go. Something to wake my little non morning person self up.

To the Business at Hand

Two photos for you today gang since I couldn’t decide. I happened upon a cute little shop called Hanatsumi. The outfit I am wearing above is from their lucky board (the group is free to join). It comes with a HUD that has 15 texture choices each for the sweater and the skirt (so cute!) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

 When the Working Day is Through…

Coming soon to fab free!

When the working day is through it is time to just chill a bit.  I’m a comfort girl and I like my space to feel and be like a little haven for my weary soul (when you get to be my age, your soul shall be somewhat weary too!) So I just flop right down on my yummy pink couch (more on this below!) and ponder on how my day went and how I can improve on it tomorrow.  You see, I am very good at planning all the wonderful things I will accomplish *tomorrow*, however, when tomorrow becomes today, I unfortunately sometimes feel myself very unmotivated, and those many wonderful ideas suddenly don’t seem all *that* wonderful.  But at night, oh!  the possibilities are endless!

This second outfit that I am lounging happily in, is the free Hanatsumi group gift (again, group is free to join) and is perfect for laying about and looking/feeling sexy while you ponder, overthink or let your mind go blank.  The choice is of course yours!   It comes with a HUD that has 10 color choices plus five for the diamond in the front and it fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Oh the Blissful Pink Couch!

Yes this is another free group gift from Careless, our favorite under 50L furniture shop that we fab free girls love to shop at!  The group is free to join as well, and there are a myriad of group gifts on the wall.  If pink isn’t your thing (blasphemy!!!) then there are 12 other colors you can get this living room set in (yes it has adult too), each set costs (are you ready?) 25L!  The poses are fab, the furniture is well made!  I might need to go through her shop again and re-do my entire little house!  Every time I go she has added more yummy newness.  Gosh, you really can’t go wrong!

This is plenty from me for now!  Happy shopping!  😀

Coffee Date

Fabfree Post: Coffee Date

The Need for Caffeine

I am in need, desperately, for a coffee date with some of my closest gals. So I set up a cute little shot with some goodies to entice them to show up for a long overdue gab session! I’ve set the mood for relaxation and caffeination that will end up turning into a lovely long catchup session. We all need to have these dates back with our gals in real life soon. I’ve missed it so much, though I’ll never tell in real life 😉

The Goodies on the table are from a Group Gift from Andika comes with Coffee, Berry Ice Cream, and Fruit, the items are animated so you can put them out for your guests and they can eat/drink! Each item is 1 – 2 LI each. Not too shabby for these quality mesh items and they will last a lifetime for your housemates or guests. Have a coffee date with a gal pal, this will have you covered and will add a splash of class.  The Andika group is currently 150L to join.

Pandora’s Box

Coming Soon

The End of May

Hey FabFree! It’s already the end of the month and it’s been such an eventful month. I have one more event with free gifts to share, and you definitely have time to go before it closes if you rush! 

The Pandora Fair

The Pandora Fair is a brand new event in SL, and this month they have a few gifts in some, not all, of the booths. I am not really sure what the theme of this event is about, but it reminds me of the myth of Pandora’s box. There’s some lovely finds at this event, and one of those is this awesome dress by zOOm. It’s completely free– just join the event’s free group and the gift is yours! The dress includes panties and it comes in several colours. The event ends on May 31st, so head over quickly to get these gifts before they disappear!

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Have Fun, FabFree!

Freebies Shack

Coming Soon

Decore Galore

Careless has been mentioned several times on FabFree already, and I just wanted to share some of their latest group gifts which you can grab with their completely free group. First off is this adorable sofa! You wouldn’t believe this sofa! It comes in over 20 colours- 20 separate couches and you can change the colour of the throw ad the pillows via a texture change hud. It’s amazing! I especially enjoyed the little “activities” animations included in the couch such as reading, talking on the phone and working on a laptop. The incredibly realistic cactus plants and the console table are also free gifts at Careless. Careless also has Lucky Boards and prize chairs in front of the store so check those out while you’re there as well. Please also read Aline’s post here for more free group gifts you can get at at Careless  if you haven’t checked it out yet, and Arielle’s post here for more sale items at this store. 

Around the Corner

What’s even more amazing about the Careless sim is that it is totally filled with freebies around the corner! If you walk to a nearby shop with the label “FREEBIES” at the front of the store front, you will find a store that houses many freebies from Upcycled and Broken Princess. For now, I am calling this little stores the “freebies shack”. 😉 I had been looking to collect all of the finds from Upcycled, and older shop that was around in an era before I joined SL. To my happiness, all of  Upcycled‘s items are available for free! There is a lot of cute decor, omega applier clothing and other goodies all for free. The item shown from Upcycled in my post today is the cute window shutter counter, which I often used to decorate my home. No group is needed to collect any of these goodies- just snatch them all up for 0L a piece!

Coming Soon

I ❤ Broken Princess

In addition to the amazing gifts by Upcycled, there are also TONNES of free jewelry in the little freebies shack I describe above. All of these free jewels are by Broken Princess, and there are so many for both women and men available! I am telling you, you have got to get over to that little freebies shack cause it’s amazing! Today I am showing one of the adorable butterfly necklaces and leaf earrings sets. Just like Upcycled, all the goodies at Broken Princess are completely free to grab for 0L. 

I suspect that all the items mentioned today at Careless and the little freebies shack will load up your inventory by at least 100 items, so enjoy friends!

Shine in the Dark

Sparkle!

I have a new store to talk about today. I am showing off the lovely gifts at Ysoral. These gifts will give you the perfect jewels that will help you sparkle and shine in the darkest of places. The Ysoral group costs 245L to join, and I believe it’s worth the join fee. Ysoral gives away many lovely gifts to group members via their lucky boards, and they currently have two group gifts out at the front of their store- the lovely diamond and gem bindi I am wearing on my forehead and the long, red kitty cat nails I have on. The nails are sized for Maitreya, Belleza, Legacy and Slink. This store currently has a 400L gift card out for their group members only, which I used to purchase some beautiful crystal earrings. I highly recommend their jewelry- all their products sparkle and shine so beautifully!

May Group Gifts @ MOoH! 

I am showing off a few awesome finds at MOoH!, which I got for being a group member. Their group costs 100L to join. These great boots are the May group gift. They come in a fatpack with options to change the colours of the stars, the leather, the shoelaces and lace topping.

Elisa thigh sneakers

I also am wearing their current group sale offer, the Delilah outfit, which is a group- only sale item (currently 50% off).  This sale isn’t free, but as a group member you get 150L a month which could go towards any item in the store!

More Finds at Sintiklia

After months of hoarding the gifts at Sintiklia in my inventory, I’ve finally started to wear and experiment with their many beautiful free group gifts. Today I am wearing: 

  • The Freeze hairstyle with Bangs #3. This is a free fatpack. 
  • A lipstick made for genus heads only. There is a beautiful red shade included in the package! I just love a classic red lipstick. You can grab it on the free gift wall at Sintiklia. All group gifts are free with their free-to-join group. 

Free Makeup @ 77th Street

Lastly, Rubedo has some free BOM makeup over at 77th Street. This is a pack of eyeshadows, and I loved the silver! Very sexy!

Have Fun, FabFree!

Let the Sunshine in

Shanti 75L Maxi Dress

Hey gang!

Big announcement here!  Some of you may already know some of this but… I have a shop called Shanti.  What you might not know is that I have been so inspired by the whole FabFree experience that I recently changed my shop so that everything is 75L or less!  Yep, even brand spanking new stuff!  Older stuff, BOM/classic things, those are 49L and less.  Woot!  This is not something that will end, this is a permanent thing.  And yes there are lots of freebies to be had!

Today I’m wearing a Shanti Maxi Dress, this is only 75L, is gorgeous for the spring and summer and fits:

  • Classic (Fitmesh)
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Shanti is very bohemian inspired (cause I loveeee the bohemian stuff, being the boho princess that I am!), which is hard to find sometimes in world. (I wish there was more!!)

I’m also wearing hair from Lamb, this is one of their awesome free group gifts, and yes, that group is free to join!

Enjoy!  I’ve got some new market finds for you next time gang!  Yay!  (and yes this is the one and only time I will be tooting my own horn.  Toot toot!!)

Marian Waiting for Robin…

Sweet Intoxication @ Fantasy Forest Hunt

Hey hey!

I just love the different clothes you can wear in second life.  I *love love love* to play dress up and let my imagination run away from me.  I’m not much into serious role play, that takes too much work to me, but give me an outfit and let me imagine the character I can become and turn it into a picture.  I do feel like a different character sometimes in my pictures, but really I think they are all a small part of who I really am in a way.  This dress brought out the princess in me.  Now I know some girls look down on the use of Princess, but to me, being a princess is a *good* thing, something you aspire to embody.  Look at Princess Diana, she was a shining example of what a Princess should be.  Kind, caring, beautiful, a force for all things *good*.   Wearing pretty outfits and a tiara are just a bonus!

All my photos have somewhat of a backstory in my brain.  A photo should tell a story.  It is like a book without the words.  You can look at it and if it is a good photo, it will take you into a world created by the photographer.  The photo is your escape to someplace different, be it magical, daring, exciting or romantic.

This dress comes courtesy of the Fantasy Forest Hunt and the prize is from Sweet Intoxication.  This is a 5L hunt and lasts until the end of the month.  This gorgeous dress fits:

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

My hair is a free group gift from Sintiklia and that group is free to join (and well worth your time because she has an entire *slew* of group gifts).

Now some spring air is calling my name kiddos and so I must dash!

Hot Diggity Dog!

77th St 7L Hot Dog Vendor

Hey gang!

It’s time again to go strolling through 77th Street for lots of gorgeous items and don’t forget about those 7L deals!  I got so hungry walking around that I grabbed myself a hot dog.  Soooo yummy!  Actually, I wanted *endless* hot dogs (health food nut that I am… not!!!), so I bought the entire Kei’s Old Time Hotdog Cart vendor for a whopping 7L!  And the hot dogs it hands out are absolutely *delish*!  A perfect weekend treat!  A stroll in the sun, shopping for goodies and a hot dog to bring along!  That sure sounds like a happy Saturday afternoon to me!

(admit it, you are craving hot dogs for real now, aren’t you??)

My hair is a Free Energy Group Gift (group is free to join) from Fabia and the necklace is a gacha from Fabia too.  😍
