Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

The Gacha Clock is Ticking!

Coming Soon to Fab FreeHey FabFree! The gacha clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of days until we have no more gachas to play and they turn into pumpkins! I know I’ve been showing the gachas hardcore this month so I hope I’m not driving you crazy.  I say let’s show a few more!

25L Gachas @ Truth!

My favourite hair store of all time, TRUTH, has all their gachas out for 25L per pull! I’m not sure how long they will be out but what a steal for great hair. On the left hand side of my photo above, I am wearing the black and whites version from the Damaris gacha which comes in a hud of various black and white dip dyed colours. See the gacha key below for all the other pulls you can win! I am not currently wearing the little flower included with the hair, but you can add and detach it as you wish. 

TRUTH HAIR Gilda Damaris Key

The hair I’m fashioning in the right-hand picture is from the Kora/Kyra/Kera gacha at TRUTH. I am wearing Kora in red, but I love how you have the change of winning 3 great styles with this one. Every item in these gachas includes a colour hud, and there a few more machines to play too! I’m not sure when these will be taken away so if you want some cheap TRUTH gachas for 25L per pull, now is the time to go!

TRUTH HAIR Kora [Colours] Boxed

By the way, the cute poses I’m wearing in this post are free on the Marketplace! These are from the Anais Mini Pose Series by an lár [poses]. I often show their poses in my posts, and they are simply amazing for all the photo lovers out there!

There’s No Place Like Home

decor_006

Hey gang!  For today’s finds, I am taking you inside my humble abode, and also to our new Fab Free Headquarters!  So travel around the grid with me if you will!  We Fab Free sisters live and breathe freebies and deals so that means we use them in our little corners of the grid, just like y’all do!  We try to set a good example by *trying* to live frugally! (not always easy!  hee hee)

So, let’s get started, as I have a lot to show you.  Above is my kitchen table area, I did this with a kitchen set from Careless (I didn’t even put everything out!) that cost me only 49L.  It’s super cute and I added a couple of odds and ends from them too.  The poses are great too, really well made stuff!

Below is my living room.  My couch and chair are a set, also from Careless, but they are a group gift meaning they are free cause the group is free to join as well!  If this color isn’t your thing, you guessed it, she has other colors for 49L!  The cute Tulips on my mantle?  10L at Careless.  The little trees with lights are from Caro Designe on market and you can get them for 50L.

decor_009

Below you can see I used the little trees from Caro in more than one place, they are just sooo pretty!  The pink Paris themed dresser with fairy lights?  That’s one of my creations and you can grab that at Shanti for only 50L!

decor_003

Here is another market find that I absolutely love, these little lantern lights from What Next.  You can grab these on their marketplace store for only 10L!  They are stunning, let me tell you!  You can of course put them anyplace you like, I strung them along my fence by the pool.

decor_001

Lastly, I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to pop by and check out the new headquarters yet, but in keeping with the fab free spirit, the house we used is of course free.  It’s a free group gift from Greymoon Designs (who has adorable houses!  I live in one (and own several!  lol!), and the group is only 50L to join.  When you join, you can grab a bunch of cute houses on the group gifts wall and here is the one we used (C-Side Cottage):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

A quick peek at the inside (but go see it in person eh?):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

(btw the umbrella shaped lamp is from LISP Bazaar and is only 50L on market!)

The landscaping I used is mostly from Lunaria and the trees with sparkles in them are both free group gifts from Lunaria and that group is free to join.  I love her stuff!

PS Don’t let Aline fool you, she did half of the amazing decorating too!  It was an awesome team effort!

Well there you have it gang, another Caroline style post from me chock full of fab free style goodness!

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.

beach_011

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀
