The Devil Wears MOoH!

Sponsor MoOH!

Boo!

Oh it’s just me gang!  Did I scare you?  No?  Not even for a minute, huh?  You all are way too smart for me!  I just can’t trick you!

Since I can’t trick you, howsabout a nice Halloween style treat?  Yes?  Great!

Grim Grinning Games!

If you head on over to Spooktacular, you can get spooky too!  This is a new event running the entire month of October (the 31st, which is, of course, Halloween!) where you can find those brand new, handy dandy, nifty and fun, newfangled Next Up machines!  Now, if you haven’t seen them yet, these are the replacements for many of the old Gachas.  The machines look very similar, but each machine will show you a photo or a number of what prize is next, meaning if you choose to pay the machine at that moment, you will get the prize shown.  If you *don’t* like the prize shown, or have your heart on something else, just give it some time and check back, once someone else plays, the numbers will move forward to reveal other prizes in the machine.  So while gacha was a game of chance, these are more a game of timing.  Both seem to include some element of luck.  But here at Fab Free, we make our own luck cause we are stubborn girlies!

This costume I am wearing is from MOoH!, it is only 50L a play and they are Flat Skeleton Avatars!  There are lots to choose from (see key below) and I am showing you the Devil one.  It is a very weird feeling being flat!  Kinda fun too, so give it a try.  Since these are complete avatars, they fit *everyone*.

The Halloween fun continues!  Stay safe Guys and Ghouls!

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!

❤ Arielle

Well How do You Hang YOUR Chandeliers???

giraffe_002

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!

My Kitty Garden

My Kitty Garden

I don’t usually often blog gachas, but I am more into them lately. Sometimes you just find the most adorable things in gachas that you just can’t find anywhere else. The cute kitty garden I’m showing today is compliments to an adorable gacha at MOoH!

Kitties, Flower, & Hedgehogs

I love the Bloom Treewood Gacha at MOoH! It’s filled with tables with flowers on them with little kitties poking out, cats on chairs and there are 2 rares of the sleeping cat on the bench and the kitty chasing the hedgehog. This one is just too adorable. They’re perfect for the garden! You can play this gacha at 50L per pull and you can’t go wrong. 

See you soon, 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!

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Sing Along with Me!

Happy Place

Old macdonald found a sale ee i ee i oh!
and at this sale he found cute pants!
ee i ee i oh!
with a cute pant here and a cute pant there…..
here a pant, there a pant, everywhere a cute pant!
Old mac donald found a sale ee i ee i oh!

Well its me again gang, Your favorite blonde, psychotic, shopaholic, head in the clouds blogger!  I hope you sang along with me!

As Aline already knows (and she *still* lets me blog!  I tell ya that girl is a saint!) and now you all do too, I love to change the words to songs, I generally make them very silly.  But sometimes they just come out downright BAD!  But that’s the fun in it!

I know, I know, y’all are waiting to find out what goodies I found for you this morning!  So, thanks to the group chat (which is usually loaded with fun info and helpful peeps like yerselves!) I learned of a little part of Scandalize that I (since I’ve been living under a rock, apparently, which someone once told me  lol) is just chock full of freebies!  It’s called Scandals Frees and News.  The group is free to join and it is an entire room of clothes and complete outfits that are totally free!  Really, if they had this sort of stuff back in the dark ages when I was a newbie, well, let’s just say I would have been much better dressed!   You can get an entire wardrobe here!

The cute pants and belt I am wearing are one of the things I found there. They come in this solid color and the same color but with cute little polka dots.  I found so much though don’t be surprised if they pop up in another blog post.  These super cute pants fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

OK chickadees, this girl is *starving*! So I’m gonna go find some lunch.  Happy shopping y’all!
