A Shutterbug in a Winter Wonderland

Kodak moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I visited The Mill for another dose of winter wonderland, and came across multiple kodak moments.  There aren’t too many things that would make me kneel in the snow (brrrr!) to snap a photo, but the gorgeous landscape, and Rip’s new pals decked in winter accessories are two of them.  Aren’t Rufus and Rex super cute?

Lilian and Naia Are Super Cute, Too!

There is something so classic in the combination of red and black, and I created this look today by combining three group gifts.  First, my off-the-shoulder, crimson sweater is a free gift from ::LiES:: Creations for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group.  With ribbed knitting on the neck and hemline, and a realistic texture in the body of the sweater, this top is bright and cheerful.  Inside the gift package, you will find versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Since the MGS&N group is free to join, the Lilian pullover won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Also a group gift, this time from Belle Epoque, my Naia pants come in black, blue, red, white and yellow, so it’s like getting four presents in one.  A free giftie for members of the Teleport Hub group, these trousers don’t come in different sizes, but they fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly, closely hugging each and every curve.  Featuring a shimmering, satiny texture topped with well placed folds, Naia is sure to flatter your figure.  To add these slacks to your inventory, simply journey to the shop on the Wild Willows sim, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and tap the vendor.  While you are there, you might want to scoop up the theatrical Venetian Mask which is a gift for Fab Free group members.

All Wrapped Up

To add a finishing touch, I applied a brilliant red manicure, which is a free gift from Hello Dave for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  You can get a better view of this fun polish in my close up below.  “Early Wrapping” features silver ribbons tied across a cherry red background, which is bound to put you in a festive mood!  This applier is compatible with Slink (v2 and above), Maitreya (just click the small nail polish bottles on the right side of the HUD), and Belleza, Vista and Empire (providing you have the appropriate Omega System Kit for the particular brand of hands).

Kodak Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap for this post (I couldn’t resist the pun).  Rip and I are off to explore some more of this wintery landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Big Lucky Board News

I thought I better take a few minutes out of my spending spree to stop by and share some freebie news!!  I was really super excited to see a notice come through the Petite Mort inworld group announcing that there are six new lucky boards set to group instore!  This group is 100L to join if you are not already a member, but these lucky board prizes will make up for that in a flash!  I managed to get a few of them and can’t wait to show them off to you!

Warm up in this…

She Ain’t Sorry

She Ain't Sorry

I have a weakness for Gachas.  I freely accept it, and add it to the list of other weaknesses I have (you know, giant cupcakes, shoes, pizza and um…pizza).  One of the best things though, is when Gachas are cute and have a really affordable price tag!

Strolling Down the Avenue

I was at The Avenue shopping event, looking at the items for sale, and my eyes fell upon this fashionable gacha by Sorumin.  I decided I needed to have it, so I clicked on the vendor, and much to my delight it only cost 20L!  The rare outfit that I really wanted came up fairly quickly, so with 60 Lindens, I managed to get a whole outfit, a coffee and a cute purse.  The outfit is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

The skirt and top go on with one click, and the top has several different colours and prints to choose from.  In order to change the texture on the top, right click on the outfit, click on “Next” and then “Touch” (may vary depending on your viewer).  A blue menu will appear with the choices.

Happy Gacha-ing!

FabFree Designer Friday – 11/24/17 – Gypsy Chic

Hello FabFree Readers!  It’s that time again…  FabFree Designer Friday!  Pru usually does these posts on Friday for us, however she’s away enjoying some family time to celebrate Thanksgiving so I guess you are stuck with me this week!

This week, we are featuring “Gypsy Chic“!

Gypsy Chic offers boho inspired female mesh clothing in an easy to cam around in, skybox style shop.  In the center of the build, you’ll find the main desk with events, information, and FREE GIFTS!

The Gypsy Chic inworld group is just 5L to join and after you have activated your new tag, you can pick up the handful of gifts on the group gift wall.  You can find three of those group gifts blogged on FabFree by me [HERE].  Also on the group gift wall you’ll find an ad for a free dress at The Free Dove building and a free group gift for The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group, which Kathryn Vayandar showed you [HERE] a couple of months back.

The shop itself has rooms  that branch off the center, filled with affordably priced items, most between 50L and 150L!  You’ll also find gacha machines playing for 25 – 50L a pull!

ps.  If you are feeling particularly “hunty”, I found that there is a hidden red T-Shirt Icon for the Womenstuff Hunt back in April that is still out and you can grab it for 1L!

Enjoy your visit!

Super Nova

Solar_001

I love checking out the view at Inspire Space Park. And I found the perfect outfit for visiting. I picked it up free as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt by stopping by OMG! Inc. and hunting down that iconic … ahem… symbol. (Let’s keep things PG 13, why don’t we?) My Supernova outfit includes the shiny black leather pants and the purple top (the pieces are separate so you can mix and match if you want) with the plunging neckline and the splash of stars that sheen over the material. It comes in all your favorite sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Solar_002

Raise a brow

I like little details and since I was feeling out of this world, I decided to add some glittery eyebrows to my features. I found these purple ones by alaskametro on the Marketplace for just 75L. These are Catwa head appliers and you’ll get 6 colors.

Glitter Eyebrow Colors Included:

  • Silver
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Pink

Something Solar

I also stopped by The Forge, because I like their in-store gachas, and gave the Aura necklace gacha a spin. I got lucky and landed the Ultra Rare on the first spin! I was super happy to show off the gold and and white necklace with my outfit. For just 50L a spin though, all the necklaces are beautiful! And they are modifiable to fit any neck size 🙂

Skating through Black Friday

11-24-2017

 

Nope! Not gonna do it…

While she’s out finding the deals of the day, I’m totally avoiding the hustle and bustle (and cart banging, the fights over the last of an item, the long checkout lines, the hassle of parking…) I decided I’d take the board out before the snow is a permanent fixture on the sidewalks. Let her look at sidewalk sales while I sail the sidewalks…

I got my deals early…

I have lots of freebies and dollarbies to talk about today. My new hairstyle is a 1L marketplace find from Speakeasy. The Clay Fatpack Hair collection comes in a multitude of colors and also includes two hairbases (black and white). I found the Steve Shirt as a FREE gift to members at Justice. The Justice group does have a 10L join fee. I’m still in my Room Pants I showed in my last post by Happy Dispatch. also previously shown are the V-3 Trainers, a FREE group gift from Vale Koer.

Play all day…

There is no work for me today, so I’m going to play the day away with my new pose from Play Poses. Skateboarder is a FREE gift to group members and comes in both male and female poses. The Play Poses group is FREE to join. Enjoy your day, even if you are out in the maddening crowds of Black Friday.

A Quiet Moment With Idelisa

Solitude

Hello Fabulous Readers!  It was a day to pause and be thankful here in the US as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  After a dinner with family, the pupster and I spent a peaceful evening at the Kittens Cradle sim.  It’s really a wonderful place to explore!

Introducing…Idelisa

In my past couple of posts {HERE} and {HERE}, I’ve shown you some beautiful Lucky Board prizes available at .Lunaria.  While we were waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I spotted a gorgeous long gown on the free Daily Prize Board and gave the vendor a tap.  I waited patiently, then as midnight rolled around, “Idelisa” was delivered to my inventory.  A long white, sleeveless gown, with golden trim, this lovely frock features a fitted bodice and a skirt which falls gracefully to floor level.  I really like the way the ivory fabric fades into sparkling golden tones at the hemline.  With sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies, this free frock will fit a majority of avatars.  The target for the daily prize is just 25, so teleport on over to the shop, invite your friends, and it’s a pretty good bet that the goal of 25 slaps will be met!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Physique
  • Venus

After our delicious turkey dinner, we sliced into that pumpkin pie I’ve been talking about and it was …. heavenly!  Thank goodness it turned out ok……I’ve been looking forward to it for days! 🙂  Maybe I should make pies more often, but then again, that was RL, not SL, so calories count.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley – who enjoyed his Ripley snacks instead of pie)

Living Out Loud

Living Out Loud

It seems that I’ve been spending a lot of time around giant sweets these days, but I don’t mind so much.  Luckily I have a sweet tooth of epic proportions to keep up with the desserts of equally epic proportions.  Thank goodness I can eat to my heart’s content in SL and not put on any weight!

Playful Brights

My hot pink dress is a gift at the Cosmopolitan event this month from Masoom.  I really like the string detailing on the side.  Makes it look quite playful!  The free gift can be found by the entrance doors to the event. Just join the Cosmopolitan group (which is free to join) in order to pick it up.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Hourglass

Colourful Locks

The ever resourceful Love pointed me in the direction of this next group gift.  She whispered ever so sweetly that there were some free group gifts at Nyne.  I hopped over right away, and was not disappointed with her tip.  There are three free hairstyles at Nyne right now, and this top knot was right up my alley.  The Nyne group is free to join, so get down there!

Well, dear readers, I guess I could tone down the brightness of my wardrobe, but where would be the fun in that? Live life out loud!

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂

In My Spot

myspot

I call the corner

We didn’t exactly need more firewood…  [In reference to this post].  There was quite a stock pile, but I sent him out anyways because he was…  IN MY SPOT!  The corner of the sectional is always my spot.  It’s the warmest, snuggliest spot, and for some reason…  It collects the most lindens in the cushions.

I needed those lindens!!

I had stopped in earlier in the day to Boutique No. 1 and picked up the Orian Dress in Bleu for just 10L, which is a lovely  belted mini sweater dress in a beautiful cobalt blue texture.   At the time, I only had enough for just one of the five different colours on the wall.  Now that I have done a little sofa fundraising, I can go back and grab the rest of them…  After a little nap of course…  it’s so quiet when he’s out :).

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis
