So, much of my life I’ve been kind of a hippie girl, ok a very hippie girl, I’m always barefoot, don’t wear much makeup, love long skirts and floppy hats and I am even wearing tie dye as I type this!  (in real life!)  So naturally I was excited to discover that there was a 60’s event going on, and had to check it out!

When you arrive there, you will discover a brightly colored fun themed area.  There are booths and shops of goodies and there is a treasure hunt happening.  There is no group needed, you just walk around and grab up all the free gift boxes (some might ask you for 1L but they give it right back).  A couple of them will ask you a 60’s trivia question to get the prize (those seem to be the ones in the bushes) but it is all good fun!

This event runs until August 15, so you have time to browse, treasure hunt and have lots of fun!

One of the goodies I got from the treasure hunt is this cute outfit from The Vale.  It fits only Maitreya, but I absolutely love the detailing on it.

Cre blogged about this event too and you can see what she found here.

Happy weekend!

Summer Fun!

coming soon

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:

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin

My skirt is a free group gift from Promagic, and that group is free to join, it has a HUD with a load of colors and it fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

My boots are a marketplace find from Lacy’s Apparel.  They are only 5L on market and also come with a HUD giving you a variety of color choices.  The boots fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My hair is a free group gift from Sintiklia, their group is also free to join and they have a whole wall of group gifts!

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.

coming soon

That should keep y’all busy for about an hour or so.  😉  Have fun!!

Roam if You Want to

Snapshot_010

Hey gang,

Feels like there are soooo many hunts and events happening right now.  I’ve been running everywhere!  So today I thought I would just putter around the house and get some things done there.  At least in second life we don’t have to dust or vacuum (unless we want to of course!), things get cluttered but they don’t actually get *dirty* ya know?  That’s always a good thing!  Of course there are issues we don’t have to deal with in real life (thankfully!)  like losing things inside walls or going someplace and no one can see our clothes.  That’s always a good thing too!

So I found this outfit in the Around the Grid 9 Hunt at Park Place Casuals.  It’s a full outfit, shoes included and is only 1L (if you can’t be bothered to hunt you can also grab it for 25L by the sign!).  It fits:

  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Ok!  So little to do and so much time!  Wait, reverse that!  More for y’all soonly!  Mwah!

Hey FabFree Folks! Welcome to another week of free stuff and fun stuff and … um loads of stuff on the Grid! I find myself hiding out on the Grid a lot lately cause it’s sooo hot and muggy here in real life. I can say I love Summer on the Grid cause… you know, it’s air conditioned! So I ask you, what do you do when even the grid is Summer time hot?  Well, you grab a tall cool glass of lemonade and just accept… ya look hawt!

My lovely new dress is from Indigenous and it’s a cool 1L as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt. Can you believed the Hunt is celebrating it’s 11th year!?  This is one successful Hunt and it’s no wonder when you get great designers to hide such gorgeous prizes like this “Lemonade” dress. You have until the 31st of July to grab up the tasty prizes for this Hunt so finish that drink and get hunting!

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Legacy + Legacy Perky

My super cute new necklace and earrings are not on the Hunt but I did hunt them down on the Marketplace. This is the “Lemons Set” from Footpaw Industries and you can find it on the Marketplace for just 20L. The set includes the necklace, earrings, belly piercings and nipple piercings. It think it’s just the thing for my new dress.

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!

A little traveling never hurts. It’s good for the soul. I travel all the time in SL, especially to find hunt items. Here is another of the Enchanted Forest Hunt items I picked up yesterday.

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!

Hey Gang!

I hope you have begun the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt because there are only a few days left!  (Gosh that flew by!  Didn’t it???) I know Aline has been a crazy woman snapping up gifts left and right!  (not that she *isn’t * a crazy woman when she isn’t hunting, but for that matter all us Fab Free gals are a bit off center and crazy in our own way!)  But that’s why you guys love us!  (you do love us, don’t you??)

Anyhoo!  I’ve been grabbing some more goodies from the hunt too and today I’ve got the very elusive free hunt goody from Masoom.  This shirt is all kinds of wonderful happy colors and I love the lace on the sleeves!  It fits:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Legacy

To get it just look for the little Fab Free colored fairy and click her, she will give you her prize as a reward for finding her.

Stay cool gang!  Happy Hunting!
