The Hills Are Alive…

The Hills Are Alive...
The hills are alive with the sound of….freeeeebiiiiiies!  I’m crying it from the mountain tops today, though I feel like I’m often doing that.  I think my catchphrase needs to just be “Oh you like this outfit? It was free!”.  I have a few friends who always giggle after I say it, because they are always expecting my line.  Anyway, back to crying from the tops of mountains!

Powerful

Mangula has a new subscriber gift!  As per usual, it’s super awesome and entirely free.  This one comes with the knotted shirt, pink bustier, skirt and even a pair of knickers that match.  They can all be worn separately, making this one pretty darn versatile.  To get it, just click on the subscribo unit above the front desk, and then head over to the gift section and you’ll find the vendor there.  There are plenty more awesome free gifts while you’re at it!

Wait, WHAT?

Oh guys…hold on tight because Pure Poison is having a bit of a clear out with lots and lots of their older creations marked down to just 1L on Marketplace.  I KNOW.  You’ll be rolling in completely gorgeous shoes forever if you click through to all the 1L awesomeness.  You’ll also find some priced at 5L and 10L too.  The tea is that you can grab these goodies for this weekend, and the 1L stuff will be around until April 30th when they will then be deleted FOREVER!  Gasp!  My suggestion to get to the shoe hoard is to head to the Pure Poison MP store, choose “lowest to highest price” and click off “demos” on the bottom left so they don’t show you 50,000 demos.  You’ll find them easily then!  I bought the Katarina sandals for just 1L, and I couldn’t be happier!

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Travel the World

Coming soon to Fab Free

The World Tour Hunt

Perhaps more than ever, we need a hunt where we can explore and tour the world. Goodness knows how much travel is banned at the moment in the real world. Let’s go back to days when we could just jump on a plane and fly to anywhere our hearts desire! The World Tour hunt ends on April 20th, and you can find all the information and different paths for the hunt on the Kastle & Co events website.

Travel in Style

This adorable air flight attendant uniform by Ari-Pari is the perfect outfit to get you started on the hunt. You might as well travel the world in style. This hunt prize costs only 3 Linden, and it even includes a colour change hud to change the tie to 10 different options.  Everything in this outfit comes as separates, so you can wear the skirt, vest, and shirt separately on their own or mix and match them with different outfits. Super cute!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Stylish Accessories

I didn’t end my freebie hunting there! I also needed to find some accessories to complement my look. I stumbled upon a few adorable accessories that match this look perfectly at Pure Poison.  My sunglasses, shoes, and earrings are all free group gifts at Pure Poison.

The awesome purse is another freebie by Petit Chat on the marketplace. You can read more about this sale in my post here.

Enjoy your travels, FabFree!

Hip Hop, You Don’t Stop

Hip Hop, You Don't Stop

The Easter weekend has dawned upon us and it’s time to bust out the bunny ears, and find a bit of chocolate to sink our teeth into!  I’m dressing up as everyone’s favourite Easter bunny (with a bit of sexy spin) and getting ready to hide some eggs!

Hippety Hop

My outfit comes straight from the land of La Perla!  They often come  out with some great 1L gifts, and this entire set is their latest.  It comes with ears, the top, panties, socks, a tufted tail and an accessory that isn’t PG enough for me to mention here.  Fair warning, there’s some adult additions to the outfit in the box!  As mentioned, head upstairs at La Perla and buy this cute look for just 1L!

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Love is in the Air

Love is in the air

G’day fab fam!

Love is in the air, my friends!  What with so many hunts revolving around love and Valentine’s and cupids!  But in February, that is to be expected!  Of course we all know what hunts mean… free or nearly free goodies!  Lots of them!  For instance, I found this adorable outfit in the Love Hunt (1L hunt ends 2.28) from Applique’ Chic.  It comes with a HUD for the skirt which includes 6 really pretty color choices.  I had a difficult time deciding!

Both top and skirt come in these sizes:

  • Ocacin
  • Volumptuous
  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Now, I know from experience that we rarely give ourselves enough love.  You are the only one who has always been with you no matter what, and you are *amazing* whether you realize it or not!  So I have an assignment for y’all tonight… Go love yourself, BIG TIME!  You know what you need and what makes you happy, so go do that!  And in case no one has told you today fab fam, I love you and YOU matter!

❤ Arielle

Space Age Love Song

Space Age Love Song

This is not a drill, FabFree!  There’s 500L in store credit waiting for you at the amaaaahhhhhzing Pure Poison!  I can barely speak from all the excitement, so let’s dive in!

Shhh…Don’t Tell Anyone!

So, I just happened to swing by the store (I am there more often than is strictly necessary – I love Pure Poison a ridiculous amount), and lo! What to my wondering eyes should appear?  500L in store credit for group members.  You can use it to buy whatever your heart desires.  The group is free to join, and there are so many lovely things to buy, including full outfits (some of which are even strippable) and lots of really nice shoes.  I’m wearing the Lilian outfit which comes complete with strappy dress, shirt, leg straps and shoes (all with super extensive HUDs) and only costs 299L, leaving me a good chunk of the gift card left.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Don’t know how long it will be there, so I would hurry if I were you!

Update:  Looks like it’s available til midnight tonight, but will NOT expire.  GO GO GO!

Sweater Weather Season

Sweater Weather Season

It is getting chilly in New York, which means that sweater season is right around the corner.  And what better way to celebrate cold weather and the approaching holidays that with an ugly sweater party?  Luckily, designers on second life have the same idea.  I found this cute “Ugly Xmas Sweater” with a reindeer print under the Christmas tree for 1L at XO Xtra Ordinari (adult sim). The sweater comes in both mens and womens sizes in the box, so no one is left out at the ugly sweater party this year.

I was feeling a bit festive with this ugly sweater, so I decided to track down some makeup to complete the look.  I found this great eyeshadow for free on the marketplace from Absinthe! called “Grinch.” It is a festive read and green combination and comes in BOM.

Watch it Swirl

Watch it Swirl

It’s Sunday and the snow truly is coming down in my part of the world.  That clearly calls for a bit of chilling (literally and figuratively) in questionable outfits while surrounded by things that make me feel cozy.  All I need is a pile of books and a window to watch the swirling snow come down.

That’s Amore

Moon Amore have a few group gifts out, and while I was there a few days ago I noticed this little top that we hadn’t shown on the blog before.  It’s just the right kind of crazy for me, because in my silly mind it can be dressed up or down – and by that I mean, wear it to please yourself on a quiet day, and become a mad sexy superhero hell-bent on global domination on others!   It comes with an HUD to change to several other pretty, shiny hues and is sized for Maitreya bodies.  Anyway, to get yours, and also all the other fun gifts at Moon Amore, just join the group for 55L.

And yes, those are drag queen dolls behind me.  10 points if you can name them!

The darkness of the music of the night

The darkness of the music of the night
I’m sure you’ve all figured out from my posts by now that I love hunts.  I like to visit new sims, find out about new stores and of course, search for fabulous gifts.  I stumbled on The Phantom of the Opera Hunt a few days ago and had to give it a try.  The best part– all the gifts are free.  The hunt took me to Jinx, where I got this Phantom of the Opera pose hud.  (The pose I am doing is called “iaaaa” on the HUD.)  Then later, Fugue, where after some hunting, I found this cute Operetta Dress.

No outfit is complete without some cute lipstick.  Nevrose has a six lipstick set for it’s free group gift. (the group is also free to join.)  It come in 6 colors with Catwa and Leluka appliers.
