1001 Nights

Dance of the Elephant

Mirage Treasure Co. is one of my very favorite stores.  I love all the exotic, Arabian, Moroccan, Eastern Indian, etc. décor.  I love the clothes too, it’s something I used to make a lot of in my shop, Shanti.

In my latest visit to Mirage, I decided to delve a bit into their group and free group gifts.  The group costs 100L to join, but there is an entire underground cave with hidden goodies, both décor and clothing for you to find.  There are also lucky chairs with some absolutely stunning prizes!  That’s what I am showing you today.

The dress I am wearing above (don’t you just *love* those colors!!) is one of the outfits you can get on the group lucky chairs (did I mention they also have outfits for the guys too!), it also comes with a gorgeous head jewel.  It fits:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The furniture below is just a handful of gorgeous furniture and items for your home that you can get on the lucky chairs.  The couch and chairs are color change, so they are great to mix and match!  If you are looking for an exotic atmosphere for your home, look no further than Mirage Treasure Co.

Coming soon

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!

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

Live Your Dream

beige_011

Hey gang!

Back today to show you this gorgeously adorbs dress from Mangula!  You might have seen this on the blog already because it is a new Fab Free Group Gift!  I fell in love with it when I saw it and I just knew I had to blog it.  Just wear your fab free group tag (the group is free to join, of course!) and scoop this baby up!  I am usually a fan of the bright colors or pastels, but this earth tone just had such a softness to it, I fell in love.  Also, it can be worn with or without the sleeves.

This cute dress fits:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky

You can see all of our Fab Free group Gifts on the group gift page.  It’s a great place to find awesome freebies!

Bad Habits

Bad Habits

This girl is ready for a day of relaxing, and possibly pondering the long list of bad habits she has acquired over the years. The tendency to enjoy apple tarts, perhaps a smattering of bad listening skills now and then… and forgetting why she walked into a room the minute she gets there.  All in all, nothing too horrible… but the day is still young!

Cozy

This cute top and shorts set is perfect for lounging about, plus it’s just utterly adorable, don’t you think?  I picked it up over at Maai by joining the TeleportHUB group for just 10L.  There are plenty of gifts scattered all over the grid for this group, so the price is well worth it.  Both the top and shorts can be worn separately, so you can get quite a bit of use out of this look.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

75L Makes me Happy

Who doesn’t love a good sale on hair?  I know it’s hard for me to resist when it goes on sale, but when a whole store is on for 75L, then you just have to hold me back!  Moon is having a bit of a retirement sale (the store is NOT closing, they’re just making way for new things).  Every single hairstyle in the shop is currently on sale for 75L, even newer ones!  You’ve got until July 26th to pick up a few – I settled on the lovely windblown Rosier.

And a Pose

Versuta have a new group gift out as well for members of their free-to-join group.  There’s a whole wall of nice poses to pick up, which are great for using in photography or if you just need to stand reeeeeallllyyy still for a while!

Ok, time to go work on some more of these bad habits!

Just a Hippie Girl, in a Hippie World

coming soon

I am a sucker for anything artsy and bohemian… or pink.  I’m like a bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde).  Ok I’m not *like* a bohemian version of Elle Woods, that’s basically what I actually am, right down to a rescue Chi. (I don’t dress him in pink however, he is really a daddy’s boy)

Today is a bohemian sort of day, it’s warm, a bit humid, breezy.  So I stopped at this cute food truck to grab a cold drink and it came with a slice of watermelon!  So refreshing!  I really needed a walk someplace quiet, I’ve been all over the place doing the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt!  It was so much work to get set up, but now I am enjoying the fruits of all that labor (not watermelon!  lol).  I hope you guys are too!

While I took my stroll, I put on this cute top I got in the hunt thanks to The Bold Llama.  She has so many fun tank tops, I just love her shop. (I’m a sucker too for shirts that say stuff, and the crazier/funner (it’s a word!!!!  lol!) the better!)  This was only 3L in the hunt and it fits:

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

The hunt runs until July 22, but leave yourself plenty of time to hunt, there are lots of gorgeous items to be found!

OK gang, stay cool out there!

Stay Wild, Moon Child

Stay Wild Moon Child

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a… fab free blogger???
Hey gang!
‘Tis just me, your favorite blonde barefoot blogger!  My picture today shows where my brain is most of the time…. off floating in space.  And I do love the moon, adore the moon!  Even though my sun sign is ruled by the sun (I am a Leo, as is our faithful Fab Free Leader, Aline), I do have a weakness for the beauty, romanticism, poetry and magic of sister moon.  If I weren’t deathly afraid of heights, I might want to sit with the man on the moon, watching shooting stars and whispering about the wonders of the universe.  As it stands, I shall stay here on Earth, blogging the hours away.

Fab Free Wants YOU (yes, YOU!!!!)

Speaking of such things as blogging, we are looking for some bloggers to join our team!
Yessireebob! (who is this guy Bob anyway??)  You know you love to find freebies and you just *know* you love to take pics of yourself wearing them and using them cause gosh darnit you just look soooooo freaking cute in those freebies!  You may not know it yet, but you would just have a *blast* sharing those photos and freebies on the fab free blog for the entire world to see!  Never mind the giant bonus points of becoming part of our happy lil fab free fam!
I have to honestly say, since I started here back at the very beginning of the year, I have felt so welcomed by everyone and so part of this family, I can’t think of anyplace I would rather be now.  So it is more than just a blog, it is a little family of friends who got yer back on your blogging journey.
And don’t feel shy!  I am *the* world’s biggest introvert, but on here I get to be who I am without judgment (actually we are *all* introverts on here!  Who knew?!  Right?), so I am talking to *you*, yes YOU, the one reading this and wondering whether you should or not and I say go for it!  You never regret the things you do, you only regret the things you DON’T do!  And I say you have a place here!
Can’t commit to being a full time blogger?  That’s ok, be a contributor!  Dip your toe in the water!  What have you got to lose?  Like Nike says, Just do it!  Click here!

Where was I?

Oh yes the moon.  😉  I’ve got moon themed goodies for you today gang!  First off this moon I am posed on, is a 1L dollarbie at Meander Me, you can find it in the Sooty Wing section of the store (over to the left after you come in) and there is no group required.  I couldn’t resist a moon with poses!
The space around me is called Space Within Moon and it is a 30L find on marketplace, its a hollowed out moon that you can use for any time you want to feel like you are in space, or even living in space as I think it is large enough for a small home.
Now ladies and gents, I believe I have babbled quite enough for one morning.  😉  Happy weekend y’all!

Dive Right In

Dive Right In

Right, I’ve decided it’s officially summer in SL.  To be fair, it’s usually summer all year if you want it to be, but I have decreed it to be so now.  Time to put on your loudest bikini and dive into the fun of the season!

In the Miix

The Miix Event rages on this month, and they’ve just set up a fun hunt that you can take part in.   In order to grab the goodies, just join the Hype Events group for free, then search for the little orange slices around the event.  There’s also some fun free finds for guys too!  Here’s what I put together:

  • FREE bikini by FurtaCor sized for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Kupra, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya Petite & Hourglass
  • FREE scrunchie by FurtaCor
  • FREE glasses by FurtaCor
  • FREE floatie by Tequila with pose included
  • FREE pool backdrop by Great Idea

 

This hunt isn’t around for too long – just until May 20th, so get to hunting!

Back to Nature

Back to Nature

I went for a ramble through nature today and listened to all the glories that can be found therein.  Birds chirping, leaves fluttering in the light breeze, and even the chatter of a squirrel or two.  I love the time of year where petals are slowly floating through the air from blossom-laden trees, and all seems full of life and promise.  Ok, I got my poetic jag out of my system, let’s get to the deals!

7 is a Good Number

It’s time for another round of 77th street, and with it, plenty of great 7L deals!  I stopped by this round and picked up this lovely dress by Faida for just 7L, as well as these cute wedges by Lybra (sized for Kupra, Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) at 7L as well.  Don’t forget that the 7L deals at 77th street come in limited amounts, so if you’re into it, don’t delay!  Also, don’t forget to pick up the free pair of shoes for FabFree members too!

Dress Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

77th Street runs until May 27th.

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

Happy Easter, FabFree!  To all those who celebrate, I hope that you enjoy this season of renewal and rebirth.  Oh, and of course… chocolate.   I’m basking happily in the Springtime sunshine and breathing in the fresh air that has wafted in our direction.  With a pocket full of jellybeans, let’s get down to it!

Hunting Time

I seem to be doing a lot of hunting these days, and though sometimes hunts can leave me feeling a bit frustrated and dizzy, I’m happy to report that this Easter hunt at Safira is pretty easy and fun.  I picked up my lovely lavender top and blue gingham skirt there, and each egg only cost me 15L each.  Just look around for the little turquoise eggs before April 11th when it comes to a close.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Easter Hunt 2021!

Yay! Shoes!

I’m always excited when there’s a new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  They’re celebrating their 6th anniversary with this really pretty pair of frilly flats in a full fatpack of colours (that was a lot of f’s!).  The counter at Miss Chelsea is groaning with super gorgeous gifts, and you’ll be able to access this one (and the rest) when you join their group for 100L.  Yay!

  • Freya

Hop along, my lovelies!
