Fall Musings

Coming Soon

Can I Go Back?

Ah, September… the month of new beginnings and a new school year is almost upon us. It’s the first day back to school over here where I live! Sometimes I wish I could just go back to school and re-live my college years. Sure, school sucks sometimes and it’s a lot of hard work… but I loved walking around the University quad with a coffee in hand, venturing off to my next lecture and absorbing my mind in the world of higher education. In all honesty, I didn’t have many responsibilities back then besides dedicating myself to learning more about the world. I just loved learning, reading, and discussing ideas, so being in College/University was one of the best times in my life!

…Fast Forward to November

I am an odd one for wanting to go back to school, huh? Well, I am also a bit strange when it comes to my opinions about the seasons of the year. Despite loving the summer months and the time I get off every year, I have a stronger fondness for the Fall. Once September starts, everything becomes a blur with how crazy school and work always becomes! I am sure you can relate. However, I just love fall; it always makes me feel warm inside. Bring on pumpkin season! I am definitely one of those people who waits for pumpkin-spice lattes and Halloween in August. This sweater and skirt outfit I have on in the photo below reminds me of the month of November because it has poppies on it and it looks warm and comfy. This is my type of clothing style! I always prefer fall and winter clothes in both RL and SL, and I simply love this outfit for its fall vibes.

Coming Soon

Get to the point, Caroline!

Well, this has been a fun and poetic exploration of my views about life, higher learning, and the seasons. Now I have two amazing outfits, poses and shoes to show you in my post today, so let’s look at what I found to bring in the fall season!

Two Lovely Limited-Time Outfits

Ari-Pari is the clothing store I am featuring today, and they are currently in the middle of renovating their store. You will find the two gifts shown in my post today at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, which is right HERE. Ariana was so kind that she left out a group gift and a hunt prize from last August a wee bit longer for us, so that no one would miss out. The two lovely outfits shown in my post today are available for a limited period of time at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, a skybox that will be open until mid-September. They are only available for another week or two, so I suggest everyone go now to get them before these great gifts disappear for good.

First, the school uniform shown in the first picture is a 1L promo at the Ari- Pari Temporary Location.  The outfit includes a hud with 10 colour options to change the colour of the skirt and necktie. The base of this school uniform outfit is white. This dollarbie promo was a hunt prize for last month’s Back to School Hunt (which has now ended), but Ari-Pari is keeping this little gem out to grab for a couple more weeks into September due to the store closure in August. Now it only costs 1L and no hunting is required- just look for the PROMO sign and pay the vendor 1L to get the outfit for cheap!

Sizes Included (School Uniform)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Secondly, the pretty poppy-patterned sweater and black skirt with a belt shown in the second photo is the August group gift for group members of the Ari-Pari group. This gift is available for a limited-time. Go get it at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location while it’s still available! Note that there is a group join fee of 25L, but new limited-time monthly group gifts are regularly released for Ari-Pari group members. This outfit includes a colour-change hud for the sweater and the belt, which you can change to 4 different colour and pattern options. The black skirt can be worn with gold or silver metal belt options. 

Sizes Included (Poppy Outfit)

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

The Ari-Pari Temporary Location will be open until mid- September, and I expect these gifts will no longer be available after it closes so go ASAP to get these limited-time promos and gifts! There will be even more group gifts and goodies coming out later when the main store re-opens after renovations, so stay tuned for the upcoming store re-opening!

Two 5L deals from Pacagaia

I have a few more fab deals to share that make up the rest of my look in my welcome-to-fall post today.

  • The poses, coffee, and cell phone shown in both photos come from a great set of bento poses, which costs only 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace.
  • The great shoes are another item that only costs 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace. These shoes fit Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. These are a full fatpack, which includes a hud to change the colours of the shoe (the top and the base) to 25 different textures. They are fantastic! Shout out to FabFree reader Aurora for showing me these – I just love ’em. 🙂

Enjoy, FabFree!

Dark Strikes Back

Dark Strikes Back

Aline and I are on the same wavelength, as I also have a dark look to show tonight! Nothing is better than black and purple makeup and clothes. I have lots of big news to share in this post, as there’s a lot going on right now! This post is filled with information, so I don’t have too much poetic to say other than I created a really fun black and purple dark look with everything I collected today.

You Have to Get in on Yomi‘s New Midnight Madness Board!

There’s been a lot going on at Yomi lately, and that includes a brand new Midnight Madness board that’s filled with goodies. You must join Yomi‘s group to use the board. Once you are in the group, you can play it. Only 75 slaps are required to lock it every night, so it has locked every day! You better show up at midnight, though. One of the things Yomi has filled the board with are a whole bunch of older hairstyles, which they retired to their Marketplace store. From what I understand everything on their Marketplace store are retired items, and they all currently have a chance of showing up on the board. For me, it was a no-brainer to join the group because if I can land some of those items and collect their VIP group gifts too, I’m sold! Their VIP group costs 100L to join, and I consider that an excellent deal for all I have gotten already. I’ve only been in the group for about a week, and I won a new prize every day. I am wearing the following items from these offers at Yomi tonight.

  • The hairstyle I am wearing is called “Four”, and it is one of the prizes on the Midnight Madness board. It’s a full fatpack of hair. It includes 3 head sizes, 3 chest sizes, and mirrored versions of the style. It also includes an amazing colour hud that allows you to change the hair to 70 different colours and roots options are included as well.
  • The beautiful choker is one of their VIP group gifts. It’s an older one, but I absolutely love it! It includes a hud to change the colour of the band and the metals of the rings.

All right, so that’s the first half of my post done. I now have 1300L in store credits to tell you about, so let’s keep going.

800L @ Tutti Belli

Dark Strikes Back
One of the best makeup stores on the grid, Tutti Belli, currently has 800L in store credits available for free. You must join their group to claim it, and the group is free to join. The credit is available until August 20th, so go grab it and spend it quick. From Tutti Belli, I am wearing:

  • A set of black lipsticks, which I purchased with the free store credits. These are an HD makeup applier that only work on Lelutka EvoX heads.
  • A set of eyeshadows in 6 colour options, which I purchased with the free store credits. These are an HD makeup applier that only work on Lelutka EvoX heads.

Check the credits posted at the bottom of this post to see the exact names of these makeup packs if you want to buy these ones with your free store credit. You only have 2 days left to spend them, so go get this offer quickly before it’s gone!

500L Customer Credit Daily Draw @ Pure Poison

Dark Strikes Back
Finally, Pure Poison has 500L in store credits available for their customers as their latest group gift. The way they are handing out the credits are a bit different this time around. Every day, the first 100 people to click the board (for those who qualify) will win 500L in store credit. It’s basically a free daily draw contest, and the first who get there win. Do the following steps to try to get in on the offer!

  1. First, you must have previously purchased 200L in shoes at Pure Poison to qualify for the offer. You need to be on their credit system to win the daily draw.
  2. Second, join the free Pure Poison group.
  3. Third, click the 500L store credit board at the main store at midnight.
  4. Check the “previous days’ winners” board at the main store the next day to see if you won.

I suggest you go at midnight to increase your chances to win. This offer is sort of a mix between a Midnight Madness Board and a free gift card so it’s really cool!

Note the following conditions on the free 500L in-store credits at Pure Poison. If you win, you are not allowed to keep entering the daily draw. You can only win this offer once, so don’t spam the board after you win it once. In three months’ time after you win the 500L in credits, you can do these steps again because customers are eligible to get this reward ONCE every three months. Pure Poison will send you a notecard with the other rules and conditions with this store credit offer when you click the board to enter the contest, so make sure you go over those rules to participate. There are lots of 10-50L deals in the outlet you can spend your credit on.

I used my store credits to buy a pair of new shoes called the Sandra Platforms and they are fab! These come with a detailed colour HUD that lets you change each part of the shoe. You will have lots of extra credit left if you choose to buy these. Who knows, you may want to choose something else because they have so many amazing designs to pick from at the store!

Sizes Included (Shoes)

  • Reborn
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

FabFree Designer Features: Vips Creations

Hey FabFree! It’s been a hot minute since I did a FabFree Designer Features post, but I’m back today with a feature on Vips Creations. Vips Creations specializes in women’s mesh clothing, and they have many elegant and beautiful designs to choose from.

FabFree Group Gift

The current FabFree group gift at Vips Creations is the Louissa outfit in silver and white. It includes a dress and shoes. Many outfits Vips Creations sells include an outfit and shoes combo, so it’s a lovely set. The FabFree group is always free to join. To join the group, copy and paste the following link into SL: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about.

Store Group

VIP Creations also has exclusive gifts for their VIP group. The group gifts change every couple of months. The group only costs 2L, so it’s a great investment. The current gift up on the wall is the “Karen Spring” outfit, which includes a dress with red poppies on it and red shoes.

Other Freebie Groups’ Gifts

There are a number of additional free gifts at Vips Creations, if you join various freebie groups posted near their VIP group gift. Below is a list of these groups’ gifts currently available with information about the groups. Most of these groups are free to join, but some of them have a small join fee. It is worth these small fees to get access to great gifts across the grid.

  • Fitmesh Fanatics Group Gift (Free to Join), Calla Wedding Dress

  • SLF&O Group Gift (Free to Join), Liza Shoes

  • DM Modas Group Gift (Free to Join), Meli Shoes

Lucky Boards

VIP Creations also has many lucky boards to play at their store, and they are free for all to play (no group required). The lucky boards contain rotating prizes for Mesh and Classic avatars, so hopefully theres some free goodies in there for everyone!

Have a wonderful evening, FabFree!

Support Raindale

Raindale

Well, I’ve finally taken a break from the FabFree anniversary posts, but I imagine it will be a short one. I had to get a word (or many words) in about what is going on at Raindale this month. This is a long one, so grab a tea and come sit.

What’s up?

Raindale released information to their group members earlier this month that there’s going to be a lot of changes happening in their store. Due to unfortunate circumstances and political issues that I will not go into detail about here, the creator has not been able to withdraw funds from their SL account to real life. While the designer was able to make a living off creating products in SL previously, this is no longer possible due to this issue. As a result, Keira Raindale has decided to scale down their store and turn their business into more of a hobby. The store is not closing, but at least half of the products at the store are retiring. Raindale is going to transition their store to focus on creative projects and “fantasy and whimsical items” in the future. The creator described this transition as “more of a fresh start, as it will benefit everyone, with more gifts, affordable products and charity projects”. If you would like more information, you can find a detailed notecard about the store’s transition in the Raindale group notices.

Please try to support this creator in any way you can. There may not be much we can do, but we can show our support and let Raindale know how much we appreciate their beautiful creations. Right now, Raindale has a number of awesome things going on which you can go do to show support for the creator and I’ll walk you through them now.

Retirement Sale

Raindale is having the biggest sale in their history until August 6th. All products are discounted 20% off in the store and retiring items are reduced up to 50% off. In August, the store will close for renovations after the retirement sale is over. This is what Raindale states about the sale in the group notices:

“Over half of the products will be gone soon! The outlet will be gone too – get those old products while you can! Since SL is now just a hobby, I’m getting rid of most of the “modern” and older items, and going to focus on fantasy and whimsical stuff in the future. The store will be closed for renovation in August! Some retired products may return in some shape or form, but it’s not guaranteed! And some unmarked products may be gone too, so get anything you need till the sale is over!”

So stock up while you can, because a lot of these items will be gone for good very soon!

250L Store Credit for Raindale Group Members

You can show Raindale support by joining their group. Group members of the Raindale group will receive 250L store credits until the end of July. The VIP group currently costs 250L to join, but it is so worth the join fee, and you will see why as I show you all the great things you could buy with the store credits and the wonderful gifts they have available at the shop. Raindale group members also receive 15% back from their purchases in store credit.

Get it Before It’s Gone

In the decor scene shown at the top of my post, I am showcasing an amazing house that can be purchased with the 250L store credit at the retirement sale. The beautiful “Gracewoods Teahouse” is the building in the centre. This was previously from the Gracewoods gacha, and it was a “rare” item. The house now costs 160L on the retirement sale for the copy version, leaving you with some additional credit to spend at the store. You can find the teahouse in the Raindale Outlet. The Outlet will be closing when this huge sale is over in August, so this is your last chance to get items like this and anything else in the Outlet. Any items marked with a “Final Sale” tag at the Raindale mainstore are also retiring and may not re-appear ever again. If you want them, now is your time!

Wanderlust Weekend

The pretty water fountain shown in my picture at the top is Raindale‘s current offering for Wanderlust Weekend. You can get 3 colours of this fountain -white, pink and mint- for only 50L on the sale for a limited time. The fountains come with sound on or off versions and the sounds are very relaxing. This has been out for a couple weeks, so grab it while you can at an amazing price!

Raindale Group Gifts

There is also a huge wall of past group gifts out for Raindale group members. I have added some of those group gifts into my teahouse and garden scene, including:

  • The canopy tent with pillows, which you can see next to the house on the grass.
  • The grasses with fairy lights are a group gift. Inside the package, two sets of grasses are included. This was a past hunt prize but it’s now up on the group gift wall.
  • The ladder with lights, which is resting against the side of the house, is another group gift.
  • The room divider inside the teahouse is from a past holiday gift.
  • The table spread with tea cups, cakes, macarons, candles and flowers, which I placed inside the teahouse, are still available for Raindale group members. This entire set comes from the package called “5th Anniversary Gifts”, a past group gift at the store. I thought the tea set matched the teahouse theme perfectly! ☕

Raindale III

June Group Gift

The June group gift at Raindale for VIP members is an exclusive summer collection available for a limited time, which you can see in my photo below. It’s amazing. The collection includes the octopus pouf, the beach ball, the coconut cocktail, the stool, the torches, the swim ring, and the board. 5 signs, including this “Summer Time” one are included. This set is so cute! This collection will not be available after the gift is gone and it is an exclusive made only for Raindale group members. This gift will be available until the end of July. The creator was so kind that she kept it out an extra month longer.

Raindale

Finally, don’t forget that Raindale is also participating in FabFree at Fifteen the items they have available for the event are absolutely amazing as well. Aline blogged all of those free gifts and promotions earlier this month HERE. Make sure you check out Aline’s post, see all the good deals available, and show your support for the store!

Thanks for reading.

Fabulously Fan(Tastic)

Coming SoonHey Fab Free! I am hanging outside the Fabulously Free in Second Life Info Hub! There’s been a lot of talk about all the free gifts and sales we have over here by Jacx here and Arielle here, but I was admiring the beautiful Halloween decorating at the Hub! It provided the perfect backdrop to show off these cozy fall looks I created. 

Funny, Fan(Tastic) Sweatshirts

Have you all been to Tastic? They have the funniest shirts with amazing sarcastic sayings on them. On the left, the sweatshirt says, “I’ve been ready for Halloween since last Halloween” which is literally true for me. Halloween is my favourite time of the year in SL! This sweater costs only 10 Linden on the Harmony Hunt at Tastic.

The other sweater I am wearing on the right says “Resting Witch Face”. This is not a gift, but it is more in the spirit of the hilarious products Tastic is known for. I have been known from time to time to give that face when I’m not in a good mood. They have lots of other goodies and freebies at Tastic so make sure you check the store out!

Sizes Included 

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Tonic Fine/Curvy
  • Legacy
  • eBody Classic/Curvy
  • Classic Fitmesh

Shoes with Stockings on Sale!

I am enjoying wearing lots of cozy stockings and cute shoes this fall season. I am fashioning some here. 

  • On the left are a pair of black boots with cat-themed stockings. The stockings come in plain, polka dot and striped black, grey, red and pink versions. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. I purchased these at MOoH! with the October gift card worth 150 Linden for group members. MOoH!‘s VIP group currently costs 100 Linden to join, and the boots and stockings are on sale for 50% for VIP members until October 28th.
  • On the right are the “Skelly Socks With Shoes” by ~MystRie~. These are available for 5 Linden on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Legacy, Isis, Venus and Freya. You are looking for a blue pumpkin on the sim to find these!

The Cutest Jean Skirt

The adorable skirt I am wearing in my two looks is a free gift at Free Dove at the Tastic booth. The skirt includes several texture denim patterns and it’s a must-have item! This skirt could be mixed and matched with many outfits. I am showing two textures of the skirt here, but there are more in the texture changer hud included with the freebie.  

Sizes Included

  • Kupra
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Altamura
  • eBody Classic/Curvy
  • Alice

See you soon, FabFree!

I Love Boathouses

Coming SoonI love boathouses. I have blogged about them before, and you may remember that I love hanging out by the water. Naturally, I was simply delighted by this boathouse skybox I stumbled upon at Quoted Memories.

I am wearing another one of their free sculpted hairs here, and all of their sculpted hairs in the store are set for 0 Linden. Pick them all up there’s quite a few and each one comes in several natural colours. 

Exotic

I am also wearing another lucky board prize from Trend, which I previously blogged about here. I am wearing the “Exotic Lip Gloss” pack, which is a super shiny pack of vibrant lip glosses. Trend‘s group currently costs 250L to join.

Luncheon on the Grass

Coming Soon

If you’re an art history nerd, you may have gotten the reference in my title. Yes, this post is inspired by one of my favourite paintings in art history, Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, translated to Luncheon on the Grass painted by Édouard Manet. As much as I studied this painting in school, I never thought I would (unknowingly) create a photo in SL that looks a bit like it! Of course, I need some 19th-Century men in the photo too, and I’m not posing in the nude, but it’s still a classic art history tradition to show people eating a picnic on the grass. I am having my picnic solo today, but I definitely have enough food to share around!

Oh yeah, I need to get to freebies now and stop ranting about art history. The first gift seen in my picnic shot are the classy Marilena Shoes. These come in a fatpack of colours and you can customize each part of the shoe including that fabric fold at the top of the feet. You can grab it as a group gift at StephaneL, and their group currently costs 15 Linden to join. 

Full with Free

Here’s an up-close shot of more free gifts I am showcasing in my picnic shot today. 

Luncheon On the Grass- Closeup

  • The hairstyle is the latest group gift at Firelight! Their group is free to join, and you get a number of free hairstyles with this group. The hair includes a colour hud that allows you to change the style to several natural tones. 
  • My earrings and necklace set are a free gift at RealEvil Industries. They have many gifts out for free at their store in addition to this gold and pearl set,  and the group is free to join. You can also grab these fashionable accessories for free on the Marketplace
  • My blue eyeshadow and purple lipsticks comes from the lucky board prizes at Trend. Their group currently costs 250 Linden to join, and they often give out gifts, lucky boards and hundreds of store credits. Both the lipstick and the eyeshadow are sized for Catwa HD, Lelutka Evolution, and Genus, and they also include BOM layers. 

I’m going to go enjoy my lunch on the grass now, FabFree. I might even call up a friend because there is way too much pie and cheese for me to eat by myself. 

Until next time!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree, I have a fun post tonight and I hope you enjoy it. Today I got pampered by some pink birdy friends at the beach, and I snapped some pics to remember the memory. It’s just another day in the life of Caroline!

Another Gift from FAGA!

My great hair is a dollarbie from FAGA, but this time you can find this gem on the Marketplace. Yet again, this a full pro pack that includes all colours and a style hud. This style is classic, and only costs 1L. You can’t get better than that. 

To Be Served

I am a lady who likes to be served, and these flamingos are doing the job right! Even though I’m not really in the mood for a margarita, I have to commend their efforts. These awesome flamingos come from a gacha at MOoH! and they are only 35L a pull at the current sale price until the end of August. 

To match all the pink, I also found some beautiful shoes at Tooty Fruity, which are their latest group gift for August. They are lovely, and the group costs 49 Linden to join. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Kupra

That’s it for now, FabFree!

What to Wear?

Coming Soon

Ever walk in your closet in the wee hours of the morning and think about changing your clothes a million times? I know I do this on a regular basis. It doesn’t help if you are an inventory hoarder as well. I am now tipping on 380K in inventory, which I guarantee is 95% from freebie shopping. You must think I’m a mad woman! Let’s just say I have a BIG wardrobe to choose from and sometimes it can be hard to pick what to wear for the day!

Innocence

There is something about this dress that is just so… innocent. It’s so white and clean, the ultimate look of purity. It’s not usually what I wear, but it’s super pretty! It’s also the the latest group gift from Korpokkur House! Simply join their group for 50L and the dress is yours along with a few other gifts. 🙂 The cute little tote bag in the corner of my wardrobe shelf is another group gift at Korpokkur House.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite

Free Hairs!

All of the sculpted hairs at Tram are currently free, and they all come in fatpacks! No group required for these, just walk over to the sculpted hair section in the store and grab them for 0L each. I am wearing one of the hairstyles now in the Maroon shade, the closest to my usual red that I could find. To be honest, I’m not even completely sure what sculpted hair is (this was before my time), but it’s free hair so I grabbed them all! 

Now just go pick something to wear, FabFree!
