Hiya, have I got a deal for you. Whole outfit (top, pants, shoes, & mesh nails.) Total price 27L.

Day With My Buds

After a hectic week of TP’ing, crowded events, unpacking, sorting, reboxing. A girl just needs a break from time to time. Jacx is modeling on her downtime day, pj pants & a tee, very similar to what I wear in RL at home 🙂 One of the events I have been unpacking is the Swank Pumpkin Hunt event from Oct. 7th-Oct. 31st.  The Free Swank group is required to do the hunt. Arielle has been showing you items she collected from the pumpkins here, here. My find, [Park Place Casuals], a new to me creator has an awesome free [Park Place Casuals] Ladies Tucked Tee – Attitude. Let’s just say this tee is very me, sarcasm is my middle name 😛 Teamed up with the tee is Sn@tch Solstice Leggings (all colors) (sized system undies, pants, appliers Omega, and Slink) for 25L on the freebie and cheapie table. Aline has shown several items from the table here. *Fame* Slippers (sized for Kupra, Legacy, & Maitreya) are a 1L Marketplace find. Hahaha had to include a shoe.  Lastly, some of the mesh creators have heard our requests to include nail appliers for our toenails that match the mesh nails. In response to that Cazimi is creating a new system. For 1L you can get Cazimi Mesh Nails Base Pack Ballerina short for Maitreya, included is 5 color hud matching mesh nail appliers & toenail appliers.

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

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!

❤ Arielle

Marian Waiting for Robin…

Sweet Intoxication @ Fantasy Forest Hunt

Hey hey!

I just love the different clothes you can wear in second life.  I *love love love* to play dress up and let my imagination run away from me.  I’m not much into serious role play, that takes too much work to me, but give me an outfit and let me imagine the character I can become and turn it into a picture.  I do feel like a different character sometimes in my pictures, but really I think they are all a small part of who I really am in a way.  This dress brought out the princess in me.  Now I know some girls look down on the use of Princess, but to me, being a princess is a *good* thing, something you aspire to embody.  Look at Princess Diana, she was a shining example of what a Princess should be.  Kind, caring, beautiful, a force for all things *good*.   Wearing pretty outfits and a tiara are just a bonus!

All my photos have somewhat of a backstory in my brain.  A photo should tell a story.  It is like a book without the words.  You can look at it and if it is a good photo, it will take you into a world created by the photographer.  The photo is your escape to someplace different, be it magical, daring, exciting or romantic.

This dress comes courtesy of the Fantasy Forest Hunt and the prize is from Sweet Intoxication.  This is a 5L hunt and lasts until the end of the month.  This gorgeous dress fits:

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

My hair is a free group gift from Sintiklia and that group is free to join (and well worth your time because she has an entire *slew* of group gifts).

Now some spring air is calling my name kiddos and so I must dash!

Spooky Christmas Time

Spooky Christmas Time
Ready to take break from the Christmas spirit and get a little spooky?  As fun as Christmas is, I am a goth girl at heart.  So when I found out Wonderland Beach was holding a Winter fare and hunt, I couldn’t wait to go.  Their Spooktaculum hunt and sale in October was so much fun, I was sure they’d throw a great Winter event.  And I was right.  I picked up this great Winter Skulls Trist Camisk Dress for free at Coveted!’s booth.  There were many other great gifts and most were easy to find in the designer’s booth or store.  The Christmas Market runs from December 6th until January 6th, so you do not want to miss it.

I am still unpacking all the treasures from the Swank Event and stumbled on these nice boots from ADI.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to go there yet, definitely put it on your list to check out the fabulous free gifts the designers left for you under the tree.  Swank’s Winter Wonderland ends on December 31st and will be gone before you know it.

No Salvation

No Salvation

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare 

As we seem to be rapidly approaching my favorite holiday I was excited to see the new group gift at Caboodle. The Caboodle group gift is a short nun’s habit, which lends itself perfectly to creating a creepy demonic possession look. Inspired by the idea I added the new group gift tattoo by Letis, the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone at Swank, and some inexpensive Marketplace finds from Corvus, Mary, R.A.D. and Glow Up. I think this look would fit right in at just about any haunted house. Time to get terrifying!

Caboodle

Truly this nun’s habit group gift at Caboodle was the inspiration for creating my demonic nun look just in time for Halloween. The Caboodle group has a join fee of 100 linden. The habit can be repositioned, and sized. I wore it with a simple hair-base. Also, don’t forget to pick up the previous group gifts still available at Caboodle.

Letis

Letis put out this perfect-for-Halloween unisex spiderweb upper body tattoo as their latest group gift. The Letis group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this very well done tattoo.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Evolved, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Belleza, Signature, BOM Layers (35%,50%,75%100%)

Blackstone

I mentioned the Pumpkin Hunt happening at Swank in my recent post “Let Me Show You the Way.” The dress and horns I used for this look are from the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone. This gift includes a full look with a dress, horns, and a matching devil tail (not shown), as well as a HUD with several colors for the dress. You can pick this gift up for free at Swank. You’ll need the free Swank group tag, I’ll link that group below. This dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara only.

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

Marketplace Finds

The gifts from Caboodle and Letis were a good start for this scary nun I’d imagined, the Marketplace was helpful for much of the rest.

Corvus – No possessed being would be complete without darkened circles around the eyes. I picked up the Corvus Demon Eyeshadow BOM layer for 30 linden on the Marketplace.

Mary – I also found a Halloween gift by Mary from 2019 on the Marketplace. The little goth cross tattoo comes in an Omega applier and is 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Glow Up – For some added gore I picked up a little nose-bleed drip by Glow Up on the Marketplace for free. It comes in a BOM layer only.

R.A.D. – Finally, the bloody sewn-shut lips are a Marketplace dollarbie by R.A.D. This gory costume essential comes in BOM layers and an Omega applier.

Alright all you creeps and ghouls, I really hope you enjoy these freaky fun freebies and cheapies. It was a lot of fun putting this super creepy look together for Halloween. Have fun out there!

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.

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

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
