Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


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.

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!

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.

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?):

(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!

Let the Sunshine in

Shanti 75L Maxi Dress

Hey gang!

Big announcement here!  Some of you may already know some of this but… I have a shop called Shanti.  What you might not know is that I have been so inspired by the whole FabFree experience that I recently changed my shop so that everything is 75L or less!  Yep, even brand spanking new stuff!  Older stuff, BOM/classic things, those are 49L and less.  Woot!  This is not something that will end, this is a permanent thing.  And yes there are lots of freebies to be had!

Today I’m wearing a Shanti Maxi Dress, this is only 75L, is gorgeous for the spring and summer and fits:

  • Classic (Fitmesh)
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Shanti is very bohemian inspired (cause I loveeee the bohemian stuff, being the boho princess that I am!), which is hard to find sometimes in world. (I wish there was more!!)

I’m also wearing hair from Lamb, this is one of their awesome free group gifts, and yes, that group is free to join!

Enjoy!  I’ve got some new market finds for you next time gang!  Yay!  (and yes this is the one and only time I will be tooting my own horn.  Toot toot!!)

I absolutely jumped at the chance to use this pose when I found it, being a photographer and all.  😉  It is from TyPoz, *and* it is a free group gift (they have some really cute poses at their shop!).  The group is only 20L to join, and the pose comes with the camera prop so you are good to go!  I will definitely be stalking their shop from now on.  😉

I’m wearing a hunt gift from Shanti while I go photographing all over the sim today.  This is a 1L prize for the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes Hunt, which runs to the end of the month and has a lot of very cute prizes, so you won’t want to miss them.   Shanti has several hunts going on and new items on the lucky boards (no group required), plus other freebies.  So well worth the trip.  This dress comes in:

  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Freya

Celebrating April!

3.28.21 wp_031

Hey Gang!

Its a new month and you know what that means!  It’s time to see what we celebrate in April (aside from Easter, of course) Let’s have a look-see….

Today, of course is April Fools’ Day, so watch out for those pranksters!  I used to be one of those pranksters but everyone knows me too well and they know I will be up to no good! So, no fun for me cause everyone is all waiting for me to pull a prank.  Alas.  Now, of course it’s not *only* April Fools Day (and they put April at the beginning of it, like every month has it’s own fools day and we need to distinguish.  the heck??), but also National Burrito Day and National One Cent Day.   I think Taco Bell should jump on this one and sell one cent burritos all day today.

Now for the rest of the month….

2. Good Friday, nice normal Holiday, also World Autism Day.

3. National Find a Rainbow Day (that’s a nice one!) and World Party Day.  Especially for those who went in search of said rainbow and actually found one!  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be able to stand in the rainbow colors so I would get on my bike and chase after the rainbow, trying to find the part where it met the earth (I didn’t care about the pot of gold.  Silly little me!), I wanted to bask in those colors up close!  I don’t need to tell you this story does not end in World Party Day for yours truly!

4. Happy Hoppy Easter!  And apparently, for the Easter Bunnies to celebrate, it is also National Carrot Day (who did that???).  I kid you not.  That’s not all.  It is also National Hug a News Person Day and National Tell a Lie Day.  Do we really need that last one?  And no, it is not an excuse to get together with family (wear a mask and stay safe folks!) and tell them all sorts of lies about your life.   Not a good holiday custom for anyone.

5. Now being the Trekkie I am, I know this is First Contact Day.  I was disappointed that it was not listed.  I guess that’s the Universe paying me back for how long it took me to understand why May 4th was Star Wars day.   Today is also, strangely enough…. National Flash Drive Day.  Why little bitty flash drives would get their own day is beyond me.  Maybe it doesn’t mean them at all, maybe it means we need to drive around in our cars and flash people!  Woohoo!  Happy National Flash Drive day!  *giggle*

6. Happy New Beer’s Eve!  Who knew that was a thing!  *Why* is it a thing?  Go on and read the 7th.

7. Happy National Beer Day (this is why).  Today is also No Housework Day (well if you are drinking beer all day to celebrate, I suppose that is understandable.).  It is also World Health Day, which I don’t think ties in with the beer thing very well.  You certainly can’t celebrate both.

9. National Name Yourself Day (that’s fun!), and also National Unicorn Day!  I need to start celebrating both of these! (I luurrrrveee Unicorns!)

10. National Hug Your Dog Day.  Hopefully people don’t need a holiday to give their dog hugs.  Mine always get a bazillion hugs every single day.  So much so that they get sick of me I think.

13.  National Be Kind to Lawyers Day.  Um, ok.

15. National High Five Day!  High five everyone you know!  and people you don’t!  Oh wait, the pandemic.  Substitute high fives for fist or elbow bumps and then get away from each other, pronto and wash.  That takes the fun out of that.  Thanks pandemic!  Sigh.

17. International Bat Appreciation Day.  I think this means the animals and not the baseball kind.    ‘Tis also International Haiku Poetry Day and National Cheese Ball Day!  So show your favorite bat some appreciation, while reading him/her a Haiku you wrote for them and sharing in a delicious snack of cheese balls.

Oh little Bat
Munching on a Cheese Ball
How I do adore Thee

24. National Pigs in a Blanket Day (Yum!  No I am not going to make a joke about little piggies all snuggled on a chilly spring night under a blanket together and how cute they must be!) and National Skipping Day!  While eating your little piggie in a blanket, I am guessing.  That combination sounds like a happy hobby.  Could be fattening too eating all those piggies in blankets, but do you suppose the skipping burns the calories off?

30. National Bubble Tea Day (I had to google this, it sounded so good and I guess I am behind the times cause everyone but me knows about this.  I plan to try some in rl soonly!) and we end the month with bubble tea aaaaaand…. National Hairball Day!  I wonder how people celebrate that last one?  With lots of catnip?

This all makes me realize one thing, humans are CRAZYYYY!

Oh and I did come in here to tell you about a freebie.  This comes from Shanti, via Ajuda Brazil.  It fits BOM and classic avatars (I’m getting away with it using BOM on my Maitreya Body).  There is a whole wall of Shanti freebies there, some more for classic bodies and some for mesh bodies too!  There are several floors of freebies there, so you definitely want to check it out!

This is enough blather from me for one post.  I’m off to the beach next time!

Peace & Pot Pies,

❤ Arielle

Modern Spring Goddess

Modern Spring Goddess

It’s time to bask in the magic of Springtime delights, my dear readers!  That means find a cute dress, hop on the bicycle, get something tasty and hang out in a park.  I can’t possibly think of what I’d rather be doing in this lovely weather that happens to have appeared in my part of the world, so it’s time to take advantage.

Yummy and Plummy

I headed over to Shanti for this sweet dress.  It’s all sorts of Spring magic to me – the boho feel, the purple tones… love it!  To get yours, just join the Shanti group for 50L and click on the gift box.  You’ll find a few other sweet gifts there too, so don’t miss out on them!

Clutter my Life

You may or may not have heard, but there’s a super fun Easter egg hunt going on at the Cies Island sim.  Most of the stores are participating, and my first stop was Tentacio.  I have always adored their penchant for fun and sweet clutter.  My inventory is pretty full of their awesome creations!  You can get all sorts of goodies there by clicking on the pastel eggs hiding around the store.  I got the shoes, drink, bicycle and clutter you see on the ground there, all for free!  There are piles of other free gifts in the boxes too, so you’re sure to find something you love.

The Cies Island egg hunt is running until April 11th!

FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt Preview: Shanti

FabFree St. Patty's Day Hunt Preview: Shanti
Ok FabFree, I’m sooooo super excited right now, because our first ever FabFree St. Patty’s Day hunt is getting underway in just a few short days.  We have had such a fantastic response from designers joining up to the hunt that we want to show you as much as we can over the next few days so you can plan exactly which stops you MUST have on your list.  You can find all the info about our hunt HERE, including previews of the prizes (with more being added daily).   This is such an exciting event for us, and we hope you’ll all enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed organizing!

Om, Shanti, Om.

I’m going to start off our previews with one of the awesome prizes that comes to you via Shanti.  When Arielle (you know, she also designs over at Shanti…yay!) passed me the pictures of the prizes, I knew I had to wear this one.  It’s just so boho and sweet and all sorts of good things.  The top and pants will cost you just 1L, and I love every minute of them!   There are three other sweet prizes at Shanti as well!  You’ll be searching for the little rainbow coloured horseshoes when the time comes.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus
