In the wind

In the wind

Hey FabFam, I know it’s late ( in my part of the world anyway) so I’m going to make this really quick.  As ya’ll know, the 2022 Hair Fair is going strong and hopefully you’ve visited. There are some awesome designers participating this year and many booths have a little gift for us. The best gift, in my opinion, is this lovely photo – op hair from No_Match.

This is “No Press” and you can grab it for free at the No_Match booth. The hair is static but it’s perfect for pictures. Which, you know… we do a LOT of! 🙂  Plus, you get a full fatpack of colors with No Press too. 

I wanted to sweeten my post up a bit, so I rummaged around on the Marketplace and found this cute little flower crown for just 10L! This the “Honey Flower Crown” from Sweet Intoxication. It’s an older build but it still looks very nice and I’m picky about such things. But this one is staying in my closet.

The Hair Fair runs until July 10th so don’t delay!

Jurassic Worlds

Coming Soon

I am all about the fandoms and blockbuster franchises today. You may remember my rantings about the Peter Pan universe earlier this morning. As it turns out, I am a way bigger nerd and enjoy more fandoms than just Harry Potter, which I have blogged about many times in the past. Well, this posts’ obsession is Jurassic Park! I’m actually going to head out to enjoy the latest Jurassic World: Dominion movie later tonight for the big date night of the week! For some reason, this scene Caroline is in reminds me of that universe, but it’s too bad I didn’t have any scary dinos backing me up. Hopefully, I can do a scary post one day with them, although the way I pictured my SL photography and dinosaurs is that they would look too cute to look like they are ready to eat humans. SL just has a way of making all creatures seem adorable. Anyways… let’s just say my brain is on all things related to Raptors, T-Rexes, and rocky parks with waterfalls because I just had a Jurassic Park movie marathon this week.

Yaina

Ok, enough about dinosaurs! Time to get to the gifts! Faga has this beautiful hair out as a free group gift. You are looking for the “Exclusive Pack Gift” sign under the Yaina hair vendor. Their group is temporarily free to join. It includes a nice little colour hud as well.

Eden

The cute Golden Zebra print “Eden Sandals” I have on are the latest group gift at Starlight Apparel. Just join the ~* Mandilena Creations *~ group for 25L and grab the huge wall of gifts at the store while you’re at it. 

Sizes Included

  • Slink
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

A Dome for the Ages

The last find I have to share today is what I used to create my scene for my photo today. This is one scene you can create from the skydome by Anna Erotica. You will find it for only 10L on the Marketplace. This is a huge skydome that allows you to change the colours of the sky and ground by touching it, and it is only 11 prims. The item does not have modify permissions, although many of their other products do. I absolutely love this creator. In fact, I live in one of their massive 15 prim “Palm Beach” skyboxes most of the time and it takes up virtually no space in my prim allotment. Their stuff is so low prim and afordable! I love the textures, scenes, and skies in their builds. For example, they have a 1 prim skybox home for only 1L here which is spacious, and it includes full modify permissions. You can find more 75L and under on their Marketplace here. Be warned that this is an adult store, so you will come across adult items in their shop if you explore further, but in this post, I have only linked general-rated items.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Housewarming

Housewarming
I just grabbed one of the “Stilt” Linden homes yesterday, so I am playing around with how I can decorate the front dock. Time for a little housewarming party to serve guests with drinks and appetizers!

Group Gift Run!

Near the end of every month, I collect group gifts from the groups I am a member of. I am featuring a couple the gifts that I collected this month, including:

  • The cute blue “shark week” bra, which is the current group gift at Paper.Sparrow. The bra fits Maitreya, Legacy, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Petite mesh bodies. The Paper.Sparrow group costs 25L to join, and you get lots of perks including regular gifts and 50L store credit every month.
  • Secondly, the incredibly detailed bread board with that crusty cheesy Italian white bread with a knife on it is the most recent group gift at Noveny. The Noveny group costs 30L to join.

Put Your Hair Up

Lastly, my cute hairstyle is only 5 linden on the Marketplace. This is one of the deals from Emo-tions. I’m wearing the hair-only version which includes a fatpack of colors, but you can also wear it with a monocle and hat. It’s worth getting, and it has a cute bun done up at the back of the hairstyle.
Housewarming II
Enjoy, FabFree!

Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!

Praying for Time

imagine_001

And it’s hard to love
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much, too much, too late
Well, maybe we should all be praying for time
Praying for Time – George Michael

Heya faboos!

Been hearing some horrible stories about war crimes being committed by the Russian armies and it just saddens me so much, how cruel we humans can be to one another.  We are supposed to be the most intelligent advanced species on the planet, but tell me, what other species is cruel to one another? Makes me question how intelligent and advanced we truly are.  So today I have donned my peace hat and am holding a light up in prayer, hoping for these atrocities to end.  It is the innocent who suffer in a war, and that is so wrong.

Meanwhile I’ve been working on this a bit longer than I would like, I’ve been under the weather but spent much of the last few days snuggled with the little man (Rocky, my Chi) and sleeping/watching tv and I have a bit more energy so I am tackling this again.

Let’s do this!

My super cute and bohemian peace hat was a marketplace find by Libelula World and it was free to scoop up!  One size fits all of course.

My top and jeans are the latest free group gift by Shanti (did you know that Shanti is Sanskrit for Peace?).  The group is 99L to join and you can grab several other group gifts as well, along with a monthly 100L that all VIP get.  You’ll also get half off all new releases so you do get your 99L worth (you basically get it right back via the gift card.  Pretty nifty huh!).  This outfit (both top and jeans) fits:

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

My awesome pose with the sparkler is from Le Poppycock, it is another of their Nextup goodies that I have been grabbing lately.  The machines are only 75L a play and there are endless poses.

Anyhoo, better wrap this up.  It’s taken me far too long!

Three Lovely Lindens!

Something New: Hoppity!
What can 2L buy you?  Well, if you are a FabFree Goddess…a lot!  This adorable little outfit was just 2L on Marketplace from our friends over at Cherie Couture.  You get the outfit, the ears, and the basket! And, yes, there is a wee cotton tail! It’s all system clothes, but the new trick of “ADD” will have you dolled up in seconds.  The basket can be worn or rezzed.  ALL THIS CUTENESS FOR TWO LIL LINDENS!

Have one more Linden?  This pose set is from Something New’s Easter Collection and is called Hoppity Easter.  You can grab this fabulous pose complete with bunny and egg at the Evil Bunny Hunt  which runs April 2nd- 30th (follow this NICE HINT- It’s Bunny Time so get Hoppity Hoppity!).  The hunt item is 1L.

So, get crackin’ and treat yourself to some beautiful new clothes and toys…all for 3 wee Linden!!

Takin’ it to the Streets

ukraine flag_010

Tis just me gang,

Sneaking in for a post.  Ohhhhh gollygosh, it’s been a crazy rl time for me.  Real life job stuff has had me on my toes the last week or so, coming to a head tomorrow (in a good way, hopefully!)  So I didn’t forget about y’all!  Just scrambling to keep up!  You know when you have those waves of time where you know if you can just get done with A, B and C, you can regroup and refocus?  I’m trying to get those things done now and hopefully by this weekend, be able to breathe again.

Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine sadly rages on.  Many of the designers have been creating wonderful items so that we can show our support for the poor people of Ukraine.  I’ve got a couple more to showcase for you today so let’s get on with it.

This super cute and colorful top is a find on marketplace for 25L by Morph Studios.  It fits:

  • CLASSIC XXS-L
  • TONIC CURVY / FINE
  • EBODY CLASSIC / CURVY
  • LEGACY
  • KUPRA
  • MAITREYA
  • SLINK HOURGLASS / PHYSIQUE
  • BELLEZA FREYA/ ISIS / VENUS

This pose is another cute marketplace find and it also comes with a pose for two people, so they’ve gotcha covered whether you are posing alone or with a friend.  It is made by Chocolate Cake (which sounds good right about now!) and will cost you absolutely nothing (aka free!).

My face tattoo in Ukraine Colors is a gift from Carol B, I found it on market also for free.

Lastly, my fellow protestor in the back is a 10L find also on market by Salmagundi (I just like to say that out loud!).  He is copy so you can turn him into an entire crowd if you please.

Say Yes to ANOTHER Dress!

Tiffany Designs: Nia

I love love love weddings.  If you’ve read some of my previous posts like this one, you know I am always trying to help a girl say YES to a cheap dress!!!  And, who knows, one of these days Angus might even propose!  He definitely gets a lot of practice suiting up in his tux!

Let’s Dish the Dress!

I was on my weekend rounds looking for EVEN MORE lipstick.  I mean, really, how much virtual lipstick can a girl use???  But, I also had a hankering for a wedding dress that is affordable.  All those Valentine Proposals are nearing fruition, right?  I can’t let you girls hang!  I couldn’t find anything affordable, so I went on over to Marketplace and on my FIRST TRY found this amazing Nia gown from Tiffany Designs for just 45L!

I love that the flexi is optional.  I loved the little shoulder sparkly veil thing, but maybe that’s not your thang.  No worries!  Just detach.  Don’t want the added sparkly train?  Only want it on one side?  Want all the sparkles for your service but not the reception?  NO WORRIES!  Detach, attach, whatever your heart wants!

Tiffany Designs: Nia (flexi)

For 45L, you get a whole lot of dress for a wedding OR just a night out at Frank’s Elite!  So, run over to Tiffany Designs on Marketplace, and pick up this delightful little number!
