Candy Cane Wishes

Snapshot_011

All I want for Christmas is You…

I took another stroll around the The Biannual Sale @ The Wash Sim and found a few more items for the guys. From the Jz for Men cart, I found the Santa’s Naughty List Shirt. It reads “All I want for Christmas is Santa’s Naughty List”. Honestly, who can disagree with that? (EDIT: A reader reminded me that this shirt and the one listed below are both available in women’s styles as well)  I matched it with the Distressed Work Jeans from the cart provided by Dark Water Designs. These jeans also come with shoes (not shown). Both these items are just $10L each.

Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker…

Another find with holiday flair from Jz for Men is the Dear Santa Shirt. This shirt describes me perfectly this year…. and again is just $10L at the Cart SaleARGRACE has a Winter group gift available until the end of the year. The Santa Hat 2016 is available for both men and women and has a color changing HUD to get that perfect hair shade. The gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

The Most Famous Reindeer of All?

Comet and Cupid
Hello there, Fab Free!  Ripley and I got into the Christmas spirit, and meandered over to the Winter Flakes sim this week.  As you can see, we discovered Comet and Cupid enjoying their last days of vacation before Jolly Old Saint Nick harnesses them up to his sleigh.  Much to my delight, they agreed to pose with me for this snapshot.  I think maybe my cute Miss Klaus mini dress and antlers might have convinced them, but Ripley insisted it was his charming personality that did the trick.

Introducing….Miss Klaus!

Have you checked out the December edition of the 2nd Level Event currently taking place?  Many of the vendors have gifts set out ranging from a variety of poses to this adorable, holiday-themed outfit – all for free!  The free gift package from Black Rose Designs features the darling Miss Klaus mini dress.  With delicate straps, warm, white fur trim, and a silver buckled belt, this sassy number is sure to make your spirits high.  Just in case you don’t encounter Comet and Cupid, the generous Black Rose designers also tucked a cute, stuffed reindeer into the gift to keep you company.  The 2nd Level Event runs until December 30th.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Curvy, eBODY, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus
  • Santa Hat (not shown)

I’ve Got a Candy Cane for You

Love’s post about Candy Cane Kisses must have awakened Ripley’s sweet tooth.  While we were browsing the Marketplace, he quickly zoned in on Pastoral’s Candy Cane Choker.  At only 20L, this necklace provided the perfect finishing touch for my outfit, while still leaving plenty of green for my last minute holiday doggie-treat shopping.  The choker is composed of a simply-tied ribbon with a holly trimmed, cheery candy cane charm.  I love the way its deep red hue echoed the color of my dress.

After bidding farewell to Comet and Cupid, Ripley and I journeyed home, and settled down in front of the fireplace to warm up after our frolic through the snow.  There is something so soothing about relaxing in front of crackling flames on a snowy winter evening…the perfect way to end the day.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

A Million Bucks

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks.  It’s all about pulling the right things together ;).  I managed to  put my entire outfit together for free today, and only spent 75L on the hair!

A Formal Find

COCO Designs, who has a plethora of free group gifts with a free group join, has added this stunning black Halter Gown to their group gifts area!  I should pay my thanks to Carson, who was the one that alerted me of this great find and inspired my look today.  I am so glad he mentioned it, because I do very much love this dress with the gorgeous texturing and sleek leg peek design.  Normally I am not a fan of ruffles and frills, but the ruffle around the bottom of the long sexy draped skirt really balances it out.  Not only does this gown look fantastic when I am standing still, but it moves very nicely with you when you walk. (Thanks Carson!)

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass

Bundle yourself up…

The gown does not include the fur scarf, however you can find this as a free group gift in the same section at COCO Designs in three colours, so just pick it up while you are there!  They work with all kinds of avatars as they are adjustable.

Don’t Forget Your Dancing Shoes

The other day [HERE], I mentioned that The Arcade Gacha has several free gifts (just priced at 0L) under their Christmas Tree, and I am still unpacking the boxes I picked up!  I found these amazing Empire Cranesbill heels that include a texture change hud with plenty of colour options in one of those boxes!

Compatible with:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

The Finishing Touch

I have blogged about these lovely Xia locks by Truth Hawks before, but now… Truth is participating in the 12 Days of Savings promotion on marketplace and you can pick up several styles priced at just 75L each!  Xia is one of them 🙂

It’s an 8bit Christmas

8 Bit Christmas

Hunting time again.

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s the weekend once again and that means it’s time to dig into more hunts. I’ve been trying out a few this past week and aside from getting mixed up and turned around (happened quite a bit, unfortunately) my loot bag has been stuffed to the brim with goodies. One such example is the beautifully quirky 8bit Christmas dress that’s out from Eclectic Stars for the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt. If you’ve read Pru’s post {HERE} Eclectic Stars carries a wide range of unique and nerdy clothing and furniture pieces and the 8bit Christmas dress is no exception. True to its name the dress features cute pixel Santas, reindeers, Christmas trees and candy canes and gave me quite the nostalgic kick for the old video games I used to play (Pac-Man!) Coupled with the vivid Christmas-y color scheme of greens and reds you’ll surely have a great dress for this season. The 8bit Christmas dress comes in 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer to help with the fit as well as sizing for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. Prizes in the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt costs 1L but if you’d rather not poke around the store you can buy the prize for 25L from the mistletoe prize prim. Personally, I’d take some time to peruse the items in Eclectic Stars as they do have a free no group needed advent calendar up, not to mention a Midnight Mania board and their free FabFree group gift! Curious to see what that is? Take a peek at Julianna’s post {HERE}

Tis the season…

To join groups for free! Moon hair store has set their group join fee to 0L and they have a wide range of group gifts out for you to pounce on. I’ve been watching this store for a while because of their elegantly casually hairstyles and beautiful hair colors and was pretty pleased to have discovered this free join period. Pictured is the Mias La II which is but one of many group gifts available. While I was partial to the dusty light purple version of this hairstyle there are nine other out of the ordinary colors to choose from an easy to use Hud that’s included in the gift package. Once you’re in the group, you can take advantage of group only Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Mania board. I’m not sure when Moon’s free group join exercise will end so join up soon.

This glittery Christmas

The holiday season is a good excuse for glitter and since I love shiny things and shoes from Baby Monkey I zoomed right over to the store when I saw that they’ve generously set out a gift for the Fabulously Free in SL group. As you well know the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join and if you’re not a member yet you can copy and paste the following link into the main chat of your SL viewer and click on the link when it pops up on local. The link is: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . Welcome to the group, please grab your free shoes. Classic pumps are a staple in any shoe collection and these come in six (you read that right) beautiful glittery colors. Just click on the hud provided in the gift package and have fun matching your shoes to your outfit. The Glitter Pumps come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. When you’re done grabbing your free group gift, check out the no group needed lucky letter chairs (two for guys as well) and the advent tree that’s set out at the Baby Monkey Mainstore!

8 Bit Christmas headshotThe search is still on!

In my last post {HERE} I said that two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2. If you guessed that the other store is 7 Deadly s{K}ins then you’re right and they’re offering the Amina skin shown above. You can get sweet-faced Amina for 0L by hunting out the snowflake at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins main store and once you’ve found it be ready to be in for a treat. The prize package contains the Amina classic skin in six skin tones (caramel shown) with cleavage/no cleavage options. Four skin tones (caramel, fudge, sand and taupe) have cluster packages that include appliers for Banned, Wowmeh, Tango, Phatazz and Slink Hands and Feet whereas appliers for Tango, Pthatazz and Slink Hands and Feet are provided for the skin tone Powder. It’s a very generous and top quality gift but I’ve found that it’s par for course for 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you’re not a group member, do think about joining up as the store is holding a group only advent and the join fee for the group is free.

I also mentioned…

That Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and that their gift was a trio of beautiful Ice Dream Eyes. I’ve been wearing the blue pair the entire week and decided to switch up to the green pair for this picture. The colors are very stunning and I love the snowy glaze on these green peepers just as much as I love them on the blue. If you haven’t picked up this lovely prize, it’s available for free when you find the snowflake at the Mesange main store. Prize package includes system layer eyes, mesh eyes and Genesis and Omega System huds.

If you’ve missed the coverage for the Women Only Hunt 2, here’s a rundown:

Gotta get back to those hunts now. Have fun on your weekend dear readers!
