Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. :-( But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! :-) My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we're CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! :-D

The Four Walls Hunt!

How I didnt know about this hunt is beyond me considering I am obsessed with furnishings in SL.. but the Four Walls Hunt is the perfect place to get some Christmassy and Wintery themed furnishings to decorate your home with.

Now, unfortunately Im so late in getting this written about, you only have until the 15th to snap up these items, which only leaves a few days. I’ve been working my little socks off to get this up as soon as I could! Thankfully though its a short hunt so you should have plenty of time to get what you want.

Each item is L$20 to purchase and you are searching for a crate of baubles which is shown in the picture below. The hunt is relatively quick and the prizes are quite easy to find!

My New Nerd Haven

Of all the posts I’ve done here at FabFree, this one is probably the most like me in RL. The truth is, I’m something of a nerd. So when I heard about the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, you can bet that I rushed over and spent more than a few L’s – and this isn’t even everything! :-D

Blogging soon!

These great skinny jeans are a new gift from *COCO* Designs, and my sweater is a gift from Prim & Pixel (full credits for what I’m wearing are at the bottom of this post). The poster behind me is a Geeks ‘n’ Nerds gacha prize from Sari-Sari. Since nerds love to read, I’ve surrounded myself with tons of books. And I love my little “Potion Master” doll, which I got from the *~HopScotch*~* gacha at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Oh, the tray of goodies was the day 1 advent gift from Sway’s; you can no longer get it for free, but it is available for sale for 75L. If you aren’t doing this fun advent at Sway’s, you really should be! Uh oh, I think my dogs are about to devour my snack… bad dogs!

Chair – {what next} Cubby Armchair (200L for set of 2)

Poster - Sari-Sari OMG!!! Posters! Nerds (50L Gacha @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Giraffe – StoraxTree Native Giraffe Whimsy Brown Statue

Lamp – {what next} Charlotte Lamp

Books in Basket – fri.day Book Basket (100L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Stack of Books - fri.day Gilderoy Book Stack (100L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Single Book – *~*HopScotch~* Geek-ucation Gacha Spoilers RARE (40L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Doll - *~*HopScotch~* 15 Jammy Dodgers and a Fez Potion Master RARE (75L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Treats – Sway’s Tray with Cocoa and Cookies (past advent, now 75L)

Blogging soon!

This pretty skin is from a new-to-me store called {AIMI}. It is the current group gift (free to join), and will run you 1 whole Linden. It only comes in the tone and eyebrows as shown, but hey, 1L! My nails are a Slink HUD from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds for 50L. Eight nerdy patterns are included. ;-)

Blogging soon!

I finally decorated my office space, and I’ll admit that it’s now my favorite space in the house. My desk (including clutter!) and the Eiffel Tower Marquee are both for sale at Collabor88, but since the current round is almost over, you’d better hurry!

Wall Hanging – Alouette Ctrl Alt Delete Key Rack (129L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Lamp – floorplan. Eiffel Tower Marquee (188L @ Collabor88)

Easel – StoraxTree Artistic Endeavors Easel A

Desk – Standby Inc. Huckleberry Desk (288L @ Collabor88)

Blogging soon!

Another view of my new office. :-) The shelf and stuffs, as well as the Industrial Chandelier, are available at Collabor88. The surge protector under the desk is from Second Spaces at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. There are two other versions that will make your virtual space look like a fire hazard with lots of wires sticking out (just like my RL office), but I thought they were a little excessive for the one lamp I have plugged in here. I’m sure I’ll find a place for them somewhere else, though! The Mayfair Trunk is a past VIP group gift from {what next}, and you can still find it in the VIP gift room.

NOTE: The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event closes on December 8th, and new round of Collabor88 will be starting the same day. Hurry on over if you want any of the great stuffs at either of these events! Please also note that slurls to both an event and the store’s main location are provided in the credits; however, if you want an event item, you need to go there to get it while the event is in progress.

Desk - Standby Inc. Huckleberry Desk (288L @ Collabor88)

Surge Protector – *Second Spaces* Geeky Powerstrip Empty (125L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Lamp – Trompe Loeil Industrial Chandelier (88L @ Collabor88)

Shelf – Standby Inc. Sawyer Shelf Set (288L @ Collabor88)
