Hello fabulous readers! Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., I’ve been on my feet cooking most of today, so I’ll keep this short. My pants and top are the November group gift from Prism Designs. My shoes are a free gift from Baby Monkey Shoes; look for the pink gift bags by the front of the door. 8 different pairs are included in the box. My jewelry is from Beloved Jewelry and is only 2L for the entire set. Care showed this set earlier this month here. My sunglasses are 10L at Two Sisters Treasures, and come in several other colors and sizes.

Finally, a quick note about my handbag by *{Junbug}*. I picked it up at the Water Lantern Festival, which was *technically* open only until November 20th, but was still open when I checked last night. Unfortunately, when I checked again tonight, the entire festival was gone and the sim deserted. :-( Hopefully the gacha machine will be moved to the *{Junbug}* main store soon, because it really is a lovely bag for only 50L.

Ok, off to bed now so I can get up early tomorrow and cook that turkey! Happy Thanksgiving!

The Black Event: .:pure:.

Blogging soon!

Good evening, Fabulouses! As you’ve already seen many times here at FabFree, The Black Event is in full swing at The Wash! I’ve got some sexy, black goodies for you tonight from the .:pure:. cart. This Raven Gown is cut waaaay down to *there* in the back, perfect for heating up a cold, winter night. ;-)

My graphics card was coughing and sputtering by the time I took this photo (Firestorm beta – yikes!), so I apologize that it is a bit pixelated. But I can vouch that this Veronica Dress is really quite pretty, and I think you can still see the delicate detailing, despite the too-big pixels.

.:pure:. Veronica Dress Black Vines (10L @ The Black Event)

This Diana Turtleneck Dress is my favorite of the bunch, and I’ve been wearing it all over SL today. The texturing is quite good, and I love that you can dress it down with boots, or dress it up with a fancy pair of your favorite heels! I’ve paired it with  the brand-new Harvest boots from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find on sale for 95L at the current round of My Attic. Eight different colors are available. One reason I’m sweating it with Firestorm Beta is because I want to see items that are materials enabled; you can see here what they look like with the graphics cranked up to 11. ;-)

A quick note about these Royalty Tights by ~Cannibelle~. You get six different colors in this pack, and you can wear them with or without your Slink feet; appliers are included, as well as tattoo/sock layers for each. I thought that was a pretty good deal for 95L! If you’d like to try out a pair of ~Cannibelle~ tights, check out Love’s post here, and pick up a free pair of November Rain tights at the current round of Acid Lily.

Finally, this cool, polka dot rug can be found at the Potpourri Designs cart at The Black Event. I’ll have more from them in a later post, as well as a couple of decor items available at the .:pure:. cart not shown here. And last but not least, the French plates on the wall behind me and the I Love You canvas are both dollarbies from floorplan. There are quite a few other decor items set out at floorplan. for either 0L or 1L, so be sure you check them out… and don’t miss all the books on the counter!

Raphaella on Tuesday

If you haven’t been over to Wetherby’s yet, you need to drop everything and run! Not only does Wetherby’s offer a NEW GROUP GIFT EVERY DAY (yes, you read that right), but right now, the group is FREE TO JOIN! I don’t know how long the free join will last, but apparently it will be free until further notice. I’m showing you today’s (Tuesday’s) gift, but if you show up too late to get this dress, don’t worry, there will be another freebie tomorrow. Sometimes the gift is a dress, sometimes a swimsuit, lingerie, pant suit… whatever Mrs. W. is in the mood for, so there is plenty of variety. If you are a new resident – or even an old one – this is a great way to build your SL wardrobe, at no cost to you whatsoever! Where else in SL can you find a fab deal like this? :-D

Blogging soon

This particular dress comes with skirts in long, conservative, short, and mini lengths, on 3 different system layers, so you have plenty of variety. There’s even a sexy zipper down the back. Check out the Wetherby’s blog for a preview of upcoming freebies for this week.

My shoes are The 8th Unknown Hunt gift from Essenz. They were actually quite easy to tint, and I was surprised that there was a color in the HUD that matched my Pink Fuel Vanilla skin perfectly. My handbag is by Lhaka Designs Inc, and was 5L on the Marketplace. My ring is a free gift from Virtual Impressions. Look for the box by the stairs.

UPDATE: Fab Reader Genna has informed me that Essenz has dropped out of T8UH, so the shoes are no longer free. I’m so sorry about that, ladies! :-(

I just have to mention my hair. It’s not free, but is a new-ish release from LeLutka. I mention it because it’s called Serena. /me giggles. :cool:

My Cheeky BFFs and Me

Blogging soon!

I picked up this cute Best Friends Forever Pose at [Kikay] whilst out on The 8th Unknown Hunt, and asked Fab Bloggers and all-around great gals Love Trill and Pru Rexroth to come and help me show it off. These ladies are truly good sports, patiently waiting while I played with windlight and my computer coughed and sputtered (eventually booting me out of SL). Thankfully, The Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe sim is all decked out for autumn, so the ladies had something pretty to look at while they waited. However… when Love started threatening the wildlife, I knew it was time to wrap things up. Anyway, the pose is very sweet, and I think everyone’s fannies look perfect!

Blogging soon!

I wasn’t going to show you the front of my outfit, since it kind of doesn’t match, but I finally decided that the sweater was too cute not to show you. The I <3 Animals sweater is the September group gift from Strawberry Jam. There are a few other gifts available, so be sure to stop by! My skirt is T8UH gift from Fabouzz. I should warn you that it is mesh and runs verrrrry small. I typically wear a standard size XS in mesh, but believe it or not, I’m wearing a large here. My mouse ears are a previous The Arcade Gacha item from [Auxiliary], and I have no idea why I felt the need to wear them, except that I thought they sort of fit the mood of my mish-mashed ensemble! ;-)

Credits for what Love and Pru are wearing are below.

The 8th Unknown Hunt runs until November 30, 2013, and all items are free. You can see my previous coverage of this event here.

The 8th Unknown Hunt – Part I

Every time I install an upgraded viewer, I wonder, “Will this be the one that crashes my 3 year-old computer?” I spent 3 hours on Monday morning doing a clean install of the new Firestorm Beta viewer because I wanted the full value of materials-enabled items. I really prefer Firestorm to the regular SL viewer, but I think this might be “the one.” I’m pretty sure I hear coughing and gasping every time I crank up the graphics, and too many windlight changes practically blow up my graphics card. Worst of all, I’m seeing tile lines again. GAH!! :-(

Blogging soon

Anyway, a couple of days ago, I spent some time checking out The 8th Unknown Hunt. Unlike other hunts going on at the moment, this one is not huge, and it includes stores that are new, or that you may never have heard of before. To quote the web site: “The original concept for The Unknown Hunt was to introduce hunters to stores that they had never been to or never heard of before. It was also to help new stores and less established ones gain more awareness and customers.” I love visiting new-to-me stores, so this hunt was a lot of fun! Here, I’m wearing the hunt gift from Olegun, the Halter Dress with Belt and Flower. My pose is one of a set of five poses called PINUP by Uncertain Smile Poses.

Blogging soon

Over the mantle, you see 2 more hunt prizes. The Vintage Frames are a gift from Sari-Sari, and the art deco lamp is a gift from Sparrow by Design. The SbD gift also includes a swimsuit, which I’m not showing in this post.

This delicate jewelry is the gift from .sleeping koala. The picture really doesn’t do it justice, as the metalwork around the edges is so intricate that I just couldn’t get a good photo. My pose, which of course, you can’t really see here (sorry!) is one of a set of six poses from Flash Friendly Poses (includes mirrors). To make up for not showing the whole pose, let me share with you that there are LOTS of hunts going on at FFP, so be sure to stop by and pick up all the great gifts! :-D

Could someone please come and get these cats before my dogs see them? Wait… they’re part of the rug?

Nikita in New England

Blogging soon!

What a gorgeous day for a stroll on the newly-opened {Noble} New England sim. You really must head over and check out the autumn beauty! I was kept toasty and warm in my new FA Creations group gift, Nikita. Included are the leggings, sweater, scarf, and handbag. FA Creations gives such generous group gifts… can you believe the group is free to join? :-D

Blogging soon!

I could just sit here all day and relax. ::Sigh:: Anyway, I picked up my cute, leafy earrings at the !Rebel Hope Designs Hug a Pumpkin Hunt. I’m not exactly sure when the hunt ends, but there are 7 pumpkins with great gifts inside, so don’t miss your chance to grab them! My manicure is the November group gift from EZ’s, and the HUD comes with 5 different designs.

The Boho Culture Fair – Part 9

Barner Logo For Website With DateGood morning Fabulouses!  I have another sweet Boho Culture Fair Dollarbie to show off today.  It inspired me to jump back a few weeks and go a little summery, but hey – SL is whatever season I want it to be right? Hey!  Wouldn’t it be sweet if there was a fifth season where the leaves turned purple and blue?  Who do we need to talk to about this?  Pink would be ace too!

The Boho Culture Fair - Part 9

The sky blue mesh Bliss Halter Top is courtesy of Sassy! at The Boho Culture Fair.  In their shop at the fair, you’ll find this sheer blouse for 1L as well as the Cuffed Denim Shorts that you can purchase for 175L in a few different colours.

My Juliet Crown is available at the { i c k y } shop at the fair for 100L.  I couldn’t pass it up when I saw it – such an adorable accessory!

I am wearing a make up layer today that I found in a box on the desk at MOCK Cosmetics priced at 0L with three Easter eyeshadows in it.  This one in particular is called AK Easter Egg 3 and added just a touch of lavender and sage to my eyes.

Fa La La… Goodbye $Lindens!

OMG, I’ve done sooo much shopping today, and this isn’t even all of it. I’ve spent so  many Lindens… I really hope I have enough left to pay my tier next week! I knew I shouldn’t… but I couldn’t help myself. I even called Love this morning to come over and do a “shopping intervention.” Her advice? “Just buy it anyway and don’t worry about it.” So, I did. Tomorrow is another day, right? :-D

Blogging soon

At least I didn’t break the bank on one thing: this cute outfit – jeans, shirt, and poncho – is the October group gift from FA Creations. The poncho is mesh, but the pants and shirt are system layers. I love the colors, and I feel so “fall-ish.” :-)  On the other hand, my piggy bank did get mangled on a couple of things. I just couldn’t help splurging on these GORGEOUS new Sigourney Boots from Slink. I’m actually glad I took Love’s advice (for once) and bought them anyway! And while I was on my crazy spending spree, I stopped by FaMESHed and picked up this cute acorn necklace and ring by Maxi Gossamer. They are texture-change (gold and silver), and besides, I’m a sucker for acorns and cute autumn things.

GAH… no more shopping! I’m back to looking for freebies now! :shock:
