This One’s For the Bloggers

Flames of Love

To the Photographers and Bloggers!

It’s about time I showed some love to all the amazing bloggers and photographers out there. You know you all inspire me to do better… I just love browsing Flickr and checking out everyone’s pictures! I have three cute freebies today for all the bloggers and photographers of SL to enjoy.

Posin’

I have been working on setting up a small photo studio for myself so I was looking for the perfect pose stand. I was tearing my hair out trying to find the perfect one! I found a great little pose stand from Shanti tucked away in my inventory. This stand is free, and you will find it at the front of their store on the wall cubby in a small little box. No group is needed for this little freebie. The pose stand is no copy, so be careful not to lose it! Make sure to rezz the gift on a sandbox or on your land. Once you have it opened, just rezz it at your place, click “edit”, and then “drag” animations into the contents menu of the pose stand. I was able to add ALOT of my poses to it, so this is going to be very useful for my blogging ventures! I used the Shanti pose stand to create the photographs in my post today in my new studio.

Some of the poses I loaded up into the stand are from an lar [poses]. They have many freebies on their Marketplace. I have been known from time-to-time to spread the news of these freebies to any blogger friends I meet. They are so great! The pose I am wearing today is from the free Ellie Series. FabFree coverage of more free poses from an lar [poses], which are all still available HERE, can be found in the following posts by my fellow bloggers and myself (check our credits to see where the poses come from):

The “Flames of Love” Backdrop

Finally, the backdrop behind me is another freebie at Shanti. Just head to the front of the store and pick it up in the little yellow bag. No group join is required for this one! It’s so pretty! It has a glowing hear in the background with lovely purple patterns and shine. Radiant!

Searching for Neverland

Coming Soon

Peter Fan

Shanti has a really fun hunt at their store for the month of June. It’s The Neverland Hunt, a homage to the Peter Pan universe. What a fun theme! I absolutely love all the movies and books such as Peter Pan, Hook and my favourite of all time is the film Finding Neverland. I even saw a Peter Pan musical on Broadway. I’m a fan to say the least. So this was a fun one for me! Each prize costs 3 linden on the hunt. You will find the hunt key, hunt object, and preview of the prizes here. There are 8 prizes in total to collect until June 30th.

I am showcasing the gown and the butterfly headdress from the hunt. Several items from this hunt are made using hand-painted textures, so they are really vibrant and ethereal.

Sizes Included (gown)

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Voluptuous
  • Fitmesh M

I have one last sale to share before I go off to explore Neverland. This amazing hairstyle is 51L at Sintiklia for a limited time. This is another Happy Weekend Deal. To save an extra 9L, simply buy the deal with the free group Sintiklia tag active. It’s an amazing style. It comes with a colour hud of 36 bright colours, a tint hud, and several options for chest sizes. This will not be out long at all, so go quickly to get it!

Coming Soon
Now I’m off to fly onto my the next greatest adventure Now chant: I do believe in faeries: I do, I do!

FabFree Designer Features: Shanti


Announcing FabFree Designer Features

It’s been a long while since we’ve done a FabFree Designer Friday post, but I figured it was time to bring this lovely series back. You may remember this was a series of posts that Pru led that featured a FabFree Designer on Fridays. We have decided to reboot the series, but call it “FabFree Designer Features”, so you will now see them pop up throughout the week on the blog now and then!

Featuring…

Today’s featured designer is Shanti. Shanti has brought cute Bohemian styles for women to the grid since November 2012. The store is celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary later this year. Shanti is created by Arielle Jishnu, one of our very own FabFree contributors.

FabFree Group Gift

The current FabFree Group gift provided by Shanti is the Kita Clingy Dress. You can learn more about the gift in a recent blog post by Juli, which you can read here.
New Fab Free Gift @ Shanti!

Other Freebie Groups’ Gifts

Shanti also has a number of other great gifts out at the moment. Shanti swaps out these freebie groups’ gifts every couple of months. These are the current gifts.

    • They also have a Third Life group gift out called the Creola skirt. The Third Life group currently costs 10L to join.

To get the gift for picks gifts, you just add the store to your picks and come back in 48 hours to pick up the gift. Once you are on the picks system, you can come get all the picks gifts. I’ve seen Shanti‘s picks board change quite frequently. They also have a lot of lucky boards that rotate, and these are free for all to play.

Still feeling the pink

Hey FabFam!  As we inch closer to the weekend I am continuing my week of Fabulously Free Group gifts with the delightful Shanti!  Not only are there a ton of group gifts and specials all the time over at Shanti, the whole store is just fun to shop in. 

Right now, you can grab this oh so cute mini dress for free just for wearing your Fabulously Free Group tag. The “Kita Clingy dress” is in Shanti’s classic BoHo style and ice cream colors perfect for Summer. It’s just long enough not to ‘over expose’ and short enough to wear as a tunic with jeans if you want to. All around a great addition to my wardrobe and yours!

If that isn’t enough… check out this crazy glittery boots! The “Glitter Boots” come with the dress so you won’t be digging around your inventory looking for a match. They come in standard sizes small, medium and large.

But wait…! Like the commercial says, there’s more! See my huggable little plushie? You get him too! The “Hugglebug Plum Plushie” is an adorable hold-able friend to keep you company. Seriously, what more could we ask for?
