It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

The Art of Doing Nothing

The Art of Doing Nothing

Much like Juli’s day, my today has been a bit of a lazy one.  I’m lounging around putting off all the little things that no one really likes to do.  I am eschewing the ironing, and the scrubbing and all the other boring little chores that clamour for my attention.  I think sometimes a noble day of rest is an art in of itself!

Resting Up

Time is ticking on this month’s edition of The Avenue.  I mentioned a while back that there were free gifts to be had there, but you’ll have to hurry over and join their group to grab these pretty little things, because they won’t be there for much longer.  Today I’m showing off lingerie by BouBouKi in a lovely pink shade, as well as these gorgeous electric blue heels by Mosquito’s Way that are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP .  Hop on over to The Avenue to grab these free gifts and a bunch more before they disappear on November 20th!

Lingerie Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Hope you’re artfully resting up too!

Flowers in the Rain

This is the “Flowers in the Rain” bra and panty set from Entice and it’s the “Saturday Sale” sneaking in under our limit at 75L. I am something of a cheap skate but I had to have this lovely set.

Just a Wish

Just a Wish
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Did you know that Sn@tch has a new 7Seas Fishing outfit out? I got notice of this gorgeous set the other day and had to try my luck. The skirt alone was enough to grab my attention. However, I have to say I am very much impressed with the way the skirt and the sweater both look on. All the pieces to this very gypsy boho style look are lovey really, even though I chose to show just the skirt and sweater in my photo. First, if you have never been fishing with the 7Seas Fishing rod before I’ll give you a quick rundown.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Moonchild

This “Fish for This” outfit from Sn@tch has several pieces. You can score a complete head-to-toe look. You’ll end up reeling in individual pieces of the outfit one at a time. Items like the skirt and top which come in several sizes will be pulled in by color so all size options are included. When I said several pieces are up for grabs, I meant it. There are 24 pieces total including hair, jewelry, and shoes! There are also system layers for classic avatars. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at the complete “Moonchild” outfit by Sn@tch. The mesh skirt and sweater both come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Hourglass, Physique) bodies.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Wasabi // Sia Mesh Hair – Basics
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Vanya
Face Tattoos – { Speakeasy } : Fear – 1L on the Marketplace
Sweater – 4 Sn@tch Bess Sweater (Slate) – Free 7Seas Fishing Prize / 100L pole required

Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

The First Snow

FabFree: The First Snow

Hello there Fabulouses!  Living in Canada, it is definitely not the first snow of the season for me in real life, but this is the first bit of snow this season that I have seen in Second Life!  The Atheneaum Sim is twinkling beautifully with sparkly fresh snow, and for just a while I forget that I hate winter, because it’s so pretty!

Good thing I had a new parka!

Actually I had two new parkas, because at Scandalize on the massive group gift wall there is the Parka in White AND Midnight that includes the top in two versions and the hooded furry parka.  I decide to wear the white top from the white set and the midnight coat from the midnight set, but you can wear them however you like.  Also included, but not shown on my avatar is a tailed version of the top!  The Scandalize inworld group is 100L to join, but you’re totally missing out if you aren’t in it!  At least go check out the wall of gifts!

Sizes Included:

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