A Pr!tty Back to School Look

School Days 2

It’s that time of year! Fall is creeping ever closer, and classes are staring back up. I really can’t wait for sweater weather! In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I put together a cute look with some casual attire. I don’t know about everyone else, but one of the first things I always did before returning to classes after a summer was get my hair done! Pr!tty has you covered and then some for a new ‘do to start out the new school year. Right now you can pick up four, yes four, different styles as special group gifts. Each Pr!tty hairstyle comes in a fat pack of colors, and the group is free to join. This means the gifts are genuinely free. Do not miss out on them! Next I picked up this super cute sweater and button-down shirt combo at BlahBlahBlah. The shirt is one of the current Lucky Board items at the main location. I also couldn’t resist the excuse to get new shoes. It’s true, there really is no such thing as too many pairs of shoes. I found these adorable ankle boots from DAISY for Free on the Marketplace. They are so cute on, and they come with a few color options! Every new school year requires a new bag or backpack, something to keep up with all the books, and notebooks, pens, and pencils. I personally prefer a messenger style bag, so this messenger bag from HOC Apparel was just the thing. It too has a few color options and is modifiable for adjusting size and fit. Probably my favorite part of this look is the glasses from VG. These geeky chic glasses are a $5 linden gift at the Trend Fashion Fair. They come with a color change and re-size HUD, and they are unisex. So I know you’ve been wondering about the pencils behind my ears, in my mouth, and up my nose… hahaha These cute little props are from Boof and also include a “hair sticks” version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Photo Challenge #3 :: Whats your New Years Resolution?

I usually make New Years Resolutions.. though they never last long. They never usually see out the month of January before I break them! I think that the resolutions that I usually make are always unattainable and so I begin to lose interest very quickly.

This year my resolution is one that I hope I will see through.. To live more, to laugh more and to love more. I want to be able to be more active in my life and to stop worrying and stressing myself out about everything. I want to be able to learn to love myself more and to show more love to those I care about in my life aswell as to be more kind and patient with people in general. To allow myself to let more people in, even though it is hard.

While I was wandering today trying to find somewhere to take pictures for this post, I came across this sign as part of a display the owner of the area had created and it made me smile as it fit my resolution perfectly!

I hope every one of you will also allow yourself to live more, to laugh more and to love more this year!

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

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)

Indulging in JAVA & VG Shoes

VG Shoes

Look at me in my pinup style pose in the club like I own the place! Well let me hurry up and tell you how I got the look before the real owner finds me here. The shoes I am wearing is a group gift from VG shoes store called, Play. They have a gorgeous creamy gold color that almost compliments any other color outfit you might wear. In fact, when I was preparing for this post, I put the shoes on first and  then went through my inventory trying on different outfits until I found a complimenting match.

VG Shoes

Then an idea hit me like a bag of shoes, JAVA Fashion Designs  has a Paisley Girl Joan Mini Dress that would go perfect! So I went scrambling into my inventory, and slipped it on, confirming that the two items went together like peanut butter and jelly. Oh, and let me tell you something about JAVA. If you join the group, which is $75L fee, the designer Simone Udimo sends out at least 2-3 outfits a week. The store has a variety of non-mesh and mesh outfits at very very, did I say very, reasonable prices. The dress I have on was sent out in a group notice, and just in case its not in the notice anymore, you can find it in store for $25L.

I also want to give a thank you to Purple Moon for sending out these beautiful diamond Diva Earrings in honor of Women’s Day. Definitely added the cherry on top of the sundae for this outfit.

Just Like A Heatwave

Snapshot_006 :D Hi Fabulouses!  I have a few really super things to share with you today, so grab a coffee and prepare to be dazzled!  (I am such a dork).

Check out this pretty little leopard print frill top!  You can pick this item up at the Cosmopolitan Simwide Hunt for just 10L by locating the hidden 1 Hundred Christmas decoration.  I’ll add more information on this hunt at the bottom of this post in case you’d like to do the whole thing!

I have paired up the Heatwave top with 1Hundred’s Warm Me Up Leggings that can be found at The Frost Fair priced at 50L. My Duh! Tall White Snow Booties are not free, but are very affordably priced at just 25L, and are available in a ton of colours and a fatpack at a discounted price.  On Marketplace you can find this snuggly warm unisex scarf in a pack with 19 other colours/prints for 10L, made by VG.
Snapshot_001

The skin I am in today is Izzie’s brand new group gift!  It’s called Ginerva and features hues of plum, cleavage option and dark brows, which was great, because it gave me a chance to show off the Frappuccino shade of the Truth subscribo gift I showed yesterday!  The Izzie’s group is 250L to join, but well worth it in my opinion with plenty of generous gifts!

Wondering who the sweet little fuzz ball is draped over my shoulder?  I am sure hoping she fares better than Madcat and Bundle#1 (let us have a moment of silence).  This is Magdalene, who I am hoping is nothing like my previous hell cat Maggie that liked to  bite and rip up my furniture.  I picked little Magdalene up for FREE on day 24 at the advent calendar on the KittyCats Sim.  You can go get one too!  It even comes with a bag of food to get you started.  Anyone who knows me here in SL, knows I don’t do well with Slive animals.  Someone is going to remind to feed it right?  He he he  look at her little tongue!

As promised, here is more information on the Cosmopolitan Sim Wide Hunt!

Fabulously Free in SL - SL Hunts Page

All across The Cosmopolitan Sim until January 15th you can find hidden ornaments in all different colours with prizes inside them from the participating shops shown above.  Make sure you hunt high and low – and while you are hunting, have a stop at the Sale Room!  There you will find tons of low priced, high quality items.
