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!

Hot Diggity Dog!

77th St 7L Hot Dog Vendor

Hey gang!

It’s time again to go strolling through 77th Street for lots of gorgeous items and don’t forget about those 7L deals!  I got so hungry walking around that I grabbed myself a hot dog.  Soooo yummy!  Actually, I wanted *endless* hot dogs (health food nut that I am… not!!!), so I bought the entire Kei’s Old Time Hotdog Cart vendor for a whopping 7L!  And the hot dogs it hands out are absolutely *delish*!  A perfect weekend treat!  A stroll in the sun, shopping for goodies and a hot dog to bring along!  That sure sounds like a happy Saturday afternoon to me!

(admit it, you are craving hot dogs for real now, aren’t you??)

My hair is a Free Energy Group Gift (group is free to join) from Fabia and the necklace is a gacha from Fabia too.  😍

Gardening, Bohemian Style

Boho Garden

I don’t know about y’all, but I am enjoying starting to get out in my garden.  The sunshine, the smell of the flowers, I love it!  Things are starting to grow and its getting closer to a time when I can just chill and sip some ice cold sweet tea (I’m a southern girl, doncha’ know).  Luckily I have this beautiful Bohemian Garden Shack to relax near my garden.  You can find it at this month’s Swank Event.  It is by Dreamland Designs, it is beautiful and comes with plenty of poses.

Now of course I’m not here without a freebie for y’all so I have this adorable boho style dress from Be Bold, it is a Fab Free Group Gift so you can wear your group tag and grab it.  The Fab Free group is of course free to join.  It comes with a HUD giving you four color choices and it fits Maitreya Lara.

Now I am about to grab my watering can and give these babies a drink, so I have to run!

Your favorite blonde gardening blogger,

Unicorn Guardian

Unicorn Guardian

I love to create characters for my photos.  In second life you can become anything you want to!  (well, that is true in real life too, but not to the fantasy extent that it is in second life!)  It really helps when you have so many wonderful creators making such amazing things for us to use in our photos.  Take for instance my photo today.  MOoH! has a 50L Unicorn Gacha with these amazing unicorns in it.  Some are display, some are animated and have poses, all of them are beautiful!  Which prompted me to put on this lovely gown from Flowerdreams (via the Swank Event which runs from the 7th of each month to the end of the month) and take some unicorn photos (what else?).

As I said, these unicorns can be found in a happy little gacha over at MOoH!.  The key is below:

Unicorns2Key

Sooo cute right?  The pose I am doing comes with that particular unicorn (the white animated standing one).

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree
It’s the time for another Swank Event which means plenty of great holiday shopping and of course, freebies.  You can find the free gifts under the large Christmas trees by the gacha machines in each of the four corners of the sim.  I don’t have nearly enough evening wear, so this beautiful Zehra Gown by Flower Dreams was a wonderful surprise.  It comes with BOM and applier base layers and a lovely flowing skirt attachment that moves along with you, like it is flowing in the breeze.  Another great free find at the Swank Event was the Peace on Earth Madeline Headpiece from Zuri.  It comes in silver with emerald stones and has a carved cameo in the center.

Stunner Originals is participating in the Christmas countdown advent and all their gifts are available for free. It is a great way to stock up on makeup and nails for the upcoming year.  In this picture, I am wearing Plenitude lipstick and Appeal eyeshadow.  The lipstick comes in BOM and with both Catwa and Omega appliers (there is also nail polish included for Maitreya).  The eyeshadow comes in BOM with Catwa, Omega and Genus appliers.  Even though all of Stunner Originals’ advent gifts are available for all 24 days, don’t delay at picking up your gifts.  When the Christmas season is over, these gifts will also be.

Dress sizes included (appliers)

Let Me Show You the Way

I'll Show You the Way

Follow me. I can show you the way. The way to what you ask? Well freebies of course! hehe Thanks for being here Fab Free’rs! There are so many fun things with gifts and prizes happing right now that it is hard to keep up. For this post I’m featuring a few of the Pumpkin Hunt gifts at Swank and a new free gift from Izzie’s.

Now through the end of the month the Swank event is hosting a Pumpkin Hunt. Most if not all of the participating shops have a Swank logo pumpkin at their booth with a gift ranging in price from 0 linden to 1 linden. I chose the free hunt gifts from Guguvaga, and Firelight to share with you. The Pumpkin Hunt at Swank does require you to wear the free-to-join Swank group tag.

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Guguvaga

I love the delicate looking sparkly spiderwebs on this fitted black tee by Guguvaga. It is a free Swank Pumpkin Hunt prize you can pick up at the event, just look for the Guguvaga booth. Don’t forget the Swank group tag.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xxs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Firelight

While I might not normally be a redhead, I found this pumpkin colored hairstyle by Firelight too cute to not share. I also think that the vibrant orange-red color is quite pretty, even if it’s not my usual. That said this pretty ponytail is also free as part of the Swank Pumpkin Hunt. Find and click the Swank logo pumpkin at the Firelight booth. The hairstyle comes in the “pumpkin” color shown with 2 size options. Remember to wear the Swank group tag from the free-to-join group.

Izzie’s 

Finally, I came across some gorgeous BOM and applier eyeshadows by Izzie’s on the Marketplace for free. The “Gloom Eyeshadows” are 0 linden on the Marketplace. With this gift you’ll get 5 smoky colors in 2 variations each.

Appliers/layers included: Omega/LOGO, Catwa, Lelutka, BOM Layers

Grim, And Yet So Pleasant A Find!

whctlb 1

Hi everyone! Sadly, the excellent Jack Or Jill Hunt is over. There is, however, at least one free prize a creator has left out for us straggling hunters, and it is not to be missed! The Little Bat offered the Grim Outfit W/Hud for the Jack Or Jill Hunt containing the Grim Jacket & Shirt shown above. The jacket is a one piece mesh combo featuring a simple denim jacket, well-textured and very realistic-looking over a foreboding skull T-Shirt. The Tee is texture change via included hud and offers you six color choices to choose from. I really appreciate it when designers offer us something with texture change options. It moves the items high up on my “Wanted” list. That isn’t all that is included in this free gift though! The Little Bat also throws in the jeans I am wearing in two styles: Straight and Tapered. Both versions come in five sizes as does the Jacket & Shirt combo, so getting a good fit will be a breeze. Run to get this item, it could be gone any minute!

WHC const vest 1

Pru previously mentioned a store over at the shopping event called Swank here. Swank is a themed monthly sales event and this month the theme is “Luck Of The Irish”! There are free gifts and inexpensive gachas to be found there, so it is worth popping by for a visit. It just so happens when I was over there I found something I liked quite a bit! The Safety Vest – The Boss from Dita Couture is at The Swank Event on a Gacha for only 30L per play. It looks very realistic and while it isn’t something you would normally wear every day, it is definitely a fun item to pick up. It could come in very handy role-playing on Second Life or if you happen to be a male dancer, it could be part of a very sexy stage outfit. Either way, for only 30L it is something that deserves your consideration.

Also at The Swank Event are the free eyes I am wearing this week, the Ivernia Shamrock Eyes from Dulce Secrets. To show off how nice they are, I inset a close up on the top picture which hopefully does them justice. They are offered in both regular and Mesh versions and make for an excellent free gift to pick up. I collect eyes on SL and was thrilled to add these to my collection, I hope you will be too!

That’s it for me, now it’s time to wander off to first life for a while. I hope you all have some fun tonight on the grid, however you enjoy spending your time there. For now I will leave you my friends with my best wishes, have fun and see you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Giving You The Gold Shoulder ;-)

whc amerbazaar blkshirt 1

Happy Wednesday! In the spirit of the holidays, I planned to post something bright and colorful. However, wouldn’t you know it? I found something fantastic in black instead! Black is, of course, the official color of Men’s clothes in Second Life (a fact that I readily make fun of often). Sometimes, though, an item comes along too sharp-looking to be ignored, and this is one of those cases.

The Serious Shirt is this month’s free group gift from American Bazaar. It is a seriously handsome shirt combo, with the black shirt, tie and a nicely textured sweater all integrated into a sweet piece of Mesh! It is offered in Five sizes for an easy fit, and the black-on-black look and great style suits my taste to a tee. Well done, American Bazaar. Thank you for a fantastic free gift!

There is a Christmas tree at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room decorated with festive stockings which are filled with a variety of free gifts. Among them you will find the Fashion Shades from Yasum that I am wearing in the above picture. There are versions for both male and female avies. Plus, they come with a hud giving you a choice of six frame textures and four lens textures. These shades are quite stylish and the hud options make them versatile as well.

Last (but certainly not least!), there are several free gifts over at Swank Events. The one that really screamed, “Pick me up!” was a shoulder pet, of all things. I have never blogged a shoulder pet before so for it to catch my eye, you know it is something special. Heth Haute Couture has created Cosima The King of Couture – Shoulder Pet, a brilliant gold figure with bright diamond eyes. Highly detailed right down to the little crown, it is an impressive piece of work to be sure. I usually don’t wear shoulder pets. I doubt most guys do, but this is definitely eye catching and it could be just the right detail to finish off a fun outfit.

That’s it for now. With the holiday season upon us, I hope your lives are filled with joy and love. If you can’t have that, then try comfort and lust. That doesn’t sound too bad either. However things work out, best wishes to you and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
