Duvet Day

Duvet Day

OH!  Um…Hi Fab Free… You caught me in my pyjamas!  I’ve been having a bit of a sleep-in today, and I was just admiring my handiwork.  The house is ready to go for Christmas, and I think I deserve a little break.  And also an enormous Hot Chocolate.  You do too, so let’s get to the details!

Cozy and Cute

In my wanderings around the grid hunting high and low for freebies, I had stopped in at Nerido.  Love posted an outfit that they have out for the Women Only Hunt (You can read about it HERE), and as I was trying to get my greedy little paws on the same outfit, I came upon their free offering for the Holiday Hunt.  The little Santa-esque box held a lovely seasonal outfit, which I have to decided to cozy up in.  The Linda set is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  The top and bottom can be worn separately and can be mixed into several styles of outfit to wear during the day too!

Sweet Slippers

I mentioned yesterday in my POST that Reign is counting down to Christmas with their 12 Days of Reignmas gifts!  The Reign group is currently 1000L to join, but I’ve already received a fatpack of heels, and the gifts I’m wearing today.  On day two,  I got these ADORABLE socks and slippers.  CUTENESS OVERLOAD.  You can change the colour of the socks, as well as switch your reindeer between Blitzen and Rudolph.   I also got the delectable hot chocolate I’m sipping daintily (aka slurping noisily).  The Marshmallow hot chocolate comes in a dizzying array of mugs, including “Naughty”, “Nice”, “Grinch, Please!” and many, many more.  The “Reigndeer” slippers and socks come in several sizes, including:

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

Well, friends.  I am going to go dive back under the duvet, because… well, I deserve a duvet day now and then!

Bright Northern Light

Winter's Light

Hello there Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I explored the La Vie sim, we met two sweet new Saint Bernard friends.  As you can see, Gus carries a rescue kit around his neck, so he and Gloria are prepared at any moment to join an SL Search and Rescue team when their services are required.  On this bright and sunny Sunday, it didn’t look like that would be necessary, so they posed with me for a photo op.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Ready to Be Santa’s Helper

My entire outfit today, from my antlers to the tip of my toes is composed of free gifts from *Coco* Designs.  As soon as I saw the Reindeer Headdress, I couldn’t wait to try it on.  What a fun way to get into the holiday spirit!  My over-sized knit sweater features a cozy turtle neck and long, generous sleeves.  I liked how it tucked into the front waistband of my cheery leggings.  With a red and white Nordic-style pattern, these pants coordinated beautifully with my crimson top and slouchy socks.  Through Linden magic, I was able to traipse around all day in just my stockings, and my feet never felt a smidgen of melted snow … pretty amazing, am I right? 😉  To scoop up this look for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the *Coco* Update Group tag (it’s completely free to join) and tap the vendors.  Easy peasy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya

As soon as I pop our wish lists in the mailbox for Old Saint Nick, the pupster and I will bid farewell to our new pals, and continue exploring this lovely sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

My Jam

If you had to choose…

What would be your favourite song of all time? I don’t mean the song in the top 40 that is your current favourite (although it could be..), or a special song you have with a loved one, I mean… that awesome song that you blast when it comes on the radio and you know every last word to.  That song that makes everything else around you disappear for a couple of minutes and just fills your heart with “happy”.

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world

That song for me is “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, and when it came on the radio on the way to work the other day it inspired the idea that I needed to find some great headphones in Second Life.  It didn’t take long to find these cool frosting headphones in the Bantam Marketplace Store for just 1L in three different colours!

Headphones Colour Options:

  • Pink/Blue
  • Cream/Green
  • Red/Yellow

You can find my Cozy Sweater Set that includes the holiday sweater and matching panties as a free Paying It Forward group gift (free to join) at the Maddict display at The Paying It Forward Event.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

As previously mentioned on FabFree by both Aline and myself [HERE], [HERE], [HERE] and [HERE]…  There are free group gifts in almost every stall!

Caught! Red Handed

12-18-2017

I was just rearranging the packages…

I was not shaking them or trying to guess what’s inside. I can’t believe you would accuse me of such a thing. When I was a child, I was horrible about packages under the tree. I would try to guess every package, mine or not. Sometimes, I miss that little scamp…

Gifts before Christmas…

GIZ SEORN (formally Gizza Creations) has not one, but two gifts under the tree for guys. I’m wearing the second of the two today. The Men’s Christmas Gift II outfit consists of a red button down shirt and green trousers and in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

While this gift is free to members, there is a group join fee of 50L, but there are past gifts still available.

Still time for peace….

My Vance Roughneck Boots are the Peace on Earth Hunt prize for guys at Roped Passions. There is still time go get all the gifts on this hunt as it concludes at the end of December. Ok, Ok… I’ll put the presents back….
