Point Me To The Eggnog!

whcLavarock Outlaw GG

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. In real life, I have been busy doing the Christmas party circuit in my “Eggnog Makes My Clothes Fall Off” T-Shirt. I find it shocking how few parties serve eggnog anymore. Anyway, besides that small disappointment, this is an excellent month for the freebie/cheapie hunter on Second Life.

My favorite item this week is another fantastic FREE Mesh Group Gift from Lavarock. The Outlaw Jacket went from the store directly into my wardrobe as their group gifts usually do. The jacket has excellent textures and detailing as Lavarock‘s items often have, but this particular FREE Group Gift comes with a texture change T-Shirt hud! It gives you a choice of twelve different T-Shirt textures and also gives you the option of not wearing the Tee at all! There are five sizes included in the box for a good fit, Ladies, this isn’t just for the men. A women’s version is also available as a FREE Group Gift. The quality of this garment is excellent, I definitely encourage you to pick it up!

It is the holiday season and I would be remiss if I failed to post a prize from the Candy Cane Hunt, which is currently underway. It is one of the best December hunts, and this year Inkheart is offering three colors of their Candy Eyes as their hunt prize. In the picture, I am wearing caramel. Also in the 1L box are the cotton candy and dark choco colors. The gift is rather comprehensive including mesh versions and three sizes for each color. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue cupcake with white icing and a candy cane sticking out of it. Happy hunting!

The last object surprised me because the hunt it is part of is long over. Sweet Intoxication still has The Biker Hunt prize available at their store! The prize costs 1L and is this fantastic pair of Mesh Jeans that I am wearing. Coming in five sizes for a nice fit, the Caden Jeans are baggy, but not overly so. As an additional option, there is a rag that is stuffed in the back pocket (which I love because it is an unusual detail). All things considered, these jeans are a fantastic pick up. The Biker Hunt object looks like a motorcycle headlamp; I hope many of us can grab it before it is gone.

That’s it for now. It’s time to pull on my holiday shirt and head off to another party. If I am lucky, I will finally find one with eggnog. Until next time, have fun everyone. Happy Holidays and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Merry Everything and Happy Always

Merry Christmas

Merry Everything and Happy Always Fab Free!

❤ Prudence & Roscoe

So we have survived Monday, some of us just barely, and are inching toward Christmas at a faster pace than I am mentally, physically, or financially prepared for! Lucky for me and all of us in the Fab Free Second Life community, there are tons of great gifts available so we can look cute and decorate for the Holidays without breaking the bank. I found this cute little rover on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. I named him Roscoe after my first dog growing up. The little guy was so festive, I couldn’t pass him up. Plus he looks great under my Christmas tree.

The tree is another Marketplace find, and my photos don’t do this dollarbie from a shop called Love justice. It shimmers and sparkles and is really pretty all on its own. Not to mention that I love the slightly gothic element of the spider webs.  I left mine as it is, just added a “homemade” tree skirt, but I think it would be fairly easy to dress this tree up even further with your own decorations if you’re so inclined.

Merry Christmas Outfit

Now that my house and my dog are in the holiday spirit, I thought I’d do a little dressing up myself. BYRNE recently sent out a super cute sweater dress to their subscriber members. The dress is a cozy yet sexy off-the-shoulder v-neck, with a subtle swirl pattern that makes me think of the iridescent patterns on bubbles. This FREE gift includes the mesh dress in a white version as well as the black version pictured. Simply join the subscriber at the BYRNE main location and check the notice history to receive this gorgeous gift.

To add some holiday cheer to my outfit, I added this pretty little holiday ribbon from Indulge Temptation. This ribbon is a FREE gift at the current round of Designer Circle. The ribbon is mesh and has re-size scripts for easy fitting. Pretty accessories like this one are a great way to spruce up any outfit for the holidays. No need to join a group for this one, just buy the gift for zero lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bundled In Blue

Snapshot_005

Brrr.. It’s chilly here in Canada today, but that’s not stopping me from enjoying the holiday season!  I’ll just bundle myself up in some cute winter gear, and head out!

As you can see I’m doing the same thing inworld 😉  Today I am wearing The Shirley Winter Edition Coat by Sage that is available on the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L.   The Wash Cart Sale actually begins tomorrow (December 16th), but Sage is all set up and ready for sale if you’d like to visit early and avoid the crowds!  This cute coat is an adorable shade of baby blue with a snowflake print.

I have paired this up with the Ama Glitter Leggings in Snow Day which I picked up as a free advent gift today (day 3).  These leggings will work with system bodies and include several appliers for mesh bodies as well.  No need to join the group – just TP over to Ama and open the door 🙂

This outfit wouldn’t be complete without a scarf and Clawtooth had just the thing!  This hairstyle called Valerie comes with the texture change head scarf and is available at the Arcade Gacha for 75L per play.

Stay warm, Fabbies!

Sn@tch Up Your Stocking Stuffers!

Have you been fishing at Sn@tch lately? I hope you kept the fishing pole that Love had you get some time back, because you will LOVE these fishing prizes. Currently at Sn@tch if you use your old fishing pole (or grab a new one for 100L) you can fish for a grab bag of 21 gorgeous items!

Sn@tch Me Away 1

Right away when I unpacked the Sn@tch Rose Louise Brocade Gown in Gold and put it on, I knew I had to find a classy place to do my photo shoot. I just screamed classic theater… velvet chairs and lush red curtains. The dress is mesh in all the standard sizes and the textures are simply sumptuous. I paired it with Sn@tch‘s Ice Queen Tiara in Gold, which was also in the grab bag this fishing round for that old style Hollywood look!

Sn@tch Me Away 2

The Sn@tch grab bag is just chock full of goodies, and I found that many of them made great mix and match pieces. For the look above I chose three different items to get a complete look.

I started with the Factory Girl Sequin Dress in Green (which is gorgeous just by itself by the way!), then topped that off with with Eponine Military Jacket in Black and Silver. As a final touch, I added the Garnet Choker from the grab bag.

Sn@tch Me Away 3

Last but not least (and certainly there are LOTS of other amazing items in the grab bag), I wanted to show you this lovely kimono called Blossom Kimono in Red, as it simply begged to be worn. I kept the Garnet Choker on, as that piece of jewelry was a perfect compliment to this lovely little number.

Hurry and make your way down to Sn@tch and snatch up these stocking stuffers before it’s too late! Remember, they are no copy, but they are transfer! So if you get extras you can give them as holiday gifties to friends!
