Searching…

ari pari_003

Hey gang,

Some nights you might find me wandering in a starlit park, searching for my true love.  Through the fog, through the mist… with the help of the fairy lights in the trees I search…. to no avail.

but hey…. I look hella good while I search!!!  So when I find him…. wink wink!  *giggle*

I’m running a bit late with this post and my next, so let’s just cut to the chase shall we (did you know that is a Hollywood phrase?)?

My stunning little number of a dress is a goodie from Ari-Pari in the Too Glam to Give a Damn Hunt, which goes until the 31st, so you still have a few days!  There are lots of cute goodies in this hunt, so well worth your hunting time!  If this color isn’t your thing, this dress comes with a HUD that gives you all sorts of gorgeous colors to make your sparkly dress!  I have a bit of a penchant for coppers and rose golds so… yeah.

This is a 1L hunt with the option of a 25L exclusive for each designer.  This dress is a 25L exclusive in this hunt, so you wanna grab it if you love it as much as I do!  This dress comes in:

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

Other goodies I included in this outfit…

My necklace is from one of my favorite places Lunaria (the trees with the lights are a free group gift from them and their group is free to join!)It’s the Eleanor Necklace Gacha and it’s only 25L until the end of this month when we sadly say goodbye to all gachas and enter a barren gacha-less grid.  😦

Fifty Linden Fridays Birthday Fun Continues!

My earrings are a free gift (Fifty Lindens Friday group join required, but it’s free!) at the FLF Birthday bash from Andore, they are called Mrs. Rabbit and they are adorbs!

Aside from the freebies at FLF Birthday bash are alllllllllll the 50L goodies you can carry (and maybe some you need one of those little red wagons you pull behind you.  I always wanted one as a kid, but never got one.  sighhhh), so I am showcasing three of my 50L finds here (I grabbed a few things):

Skin by Glam Affair Enni Layer (50L)

Wasabi Smoothie Hair (50L), which you can also see on Aline in her recent post!  Who wore it better?  lol!

Lastly, the cute gazebo I am posing in, with lights?  This is the FairyTale Gazebo by Celeste and that’s 50L as well!  It is adorable and if you love to decorate with a bit of whimsy, this is an absolute must-have!

The celebration continues until September 3rd and I think I need to make a trip back!

Til next time!

There’s No Place Like Home

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?):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

(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!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Adam n Eve: Picks Reward Gift No 3 and a Lucky Chair!

Adam n Eve`s picks reward gift has changed! This time we are pleased with a cosy, grey “Horizon” sweater. Quite my style! 🙂 Ooh, and you get both versions, male and female. All you have to do to get this gift is having Adam n Eves`s store in your profile picks, and click the picks reward sign.

And for all of you who loves “nature related furniture” and plants and flowers and all that jazz … there´s a Lucky Chair on Artis Nature (nature sim by sachi Vixen and Damen Gorilla, you have to see it, great!). A few steps away from your landingpoint is a teleport sign. Choose “tree shop”. Once there you can see (at some distance) a group of toadstools. And a toadstool is your prize if you are a lucky one. The prize will change from time to time, so check back often.

Have fun!

FH skinned Easter eggs in Yeeshas Garden and Nooby`s FarOut

YeeVoo NoStyleFashion easter egg huntYeesha Voom, designer and owner of YeeVoo Designs & Yeesha`s Garden, let me know that an Easter Egg Hunt is going on right now until Monday, March 24th. She organized this hunt together with her neighbour Nooby Noel, owner of NoStyle Fashion. Thank you, ladies 🙂

Find 12 coloured easter eggs scatterd all over Yeeshas Garden and YeeVoo Design`s store as well as Nooby´s FarOut. The eggs aren´t too tiny but you have to open your eyes. You have to buy 0 Linden for each egg and it´s worth spending a bit time for hunting because the freebies are great. Look at the Arabella Dress and the Sombrero. And the cute easter egg necklace, and the bunny teeth and ears (touch one ear to fold down, soo funny). But there is more ……

yeevoo-easternecklace.jpgyeevoo-happyeaster.jpgyeevoohat.jpg

Another reason to join this hunt is you have to see Yeesha`s Garden with beautiful trees and plants and cute scripted animals. I met a sweet frog but I was too shy to kiss him *winks*

Oh and the Lucky Chairs! While I´m there my letter comes up and now I´m proud owner of a lovely Bonsai tree, great!

FH Skins is offering a free neko girl skin which I´m wearing in one of the pics (my inventory is overstuffed but there´s no bunny skin inside): Tan Neko Girl dark lippy/whiskers freckled (shaved & unshaved) . The skin is located on the wall left the entrance, a big picture with skins and one is marked with “free”. Also for free you get a cute cat basket (1 basket with a single sleeping pose, 1 basket with sleeping pose for 2 cats), wings, tattoo and face light. The freebies are pictured on the entrance pillars.
