Toasting the New Year

Toasting the New Year

Happy New Year, fabulous readers!

I know some of you have already celebrated, and some of you might be celebrating right now. I’m having a quiet evening of hot cocoa and s’mores with my new buddy Bruce… although he looks as if he’d like to snatch the marshmallow right off the stick here, lol!

Midnight isn’t just the start of a new year, but it’s the end of some fantastic gifts and deals. A couple of these expire when the clock strikes twelve tonight, so be sure to jump on them right away!

A Gift and a Giveaway

My jacket is the latest group gift from Aleutia. The Carol Jacket comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUGE texture-change HUD. Seriously, you can change just about any part of the jacket to just about any color you can think of. You could have a different jacket every day of the month if you wanted to!

Silly me… when I joined the Aleutia group a few days ago, I didn’t take the time to read the group notices. Little did I know, there’s a HUGE GIVEAWAY currently going on… and I was stunned this morning when I got a notice that I had been selected as one of the winners!

Here are the details from the group notice:

“From Christmas Day until New Years, I’m going to be randomly giving away goodies to group members, from gift cards to new releases, several shopping sprees, and on January 1st, to ring in the new year, I’ll be giving away 10,000L!

Now that’s a great way to start things off, yes? Woo-hoo! Tell your friends and let’s see if we can hit my New Years Resolution of 1,000 group members! If so, I’ll choose at least FIVE lucky winners for the 10,000L drawing!”

So… join the Aleutia in-world group TONIGHT if you want to be eligible for the 10,000L giveaway tomorrow! Even if you don’t win the giveaway, you can still pick up this cute jacket, as well as quite a few other group gifts that are still available. It’s a win-win!

Cozy Tootsies

Juju recent set out some adorable boots as a group gift. The UGZ Xmas Gift boots come in the white version I’m wearing here, as well as a cute red holiday version. Sizes are for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. I love the knit sock sticking out of the top.

FYI, Juju is currently running a Facebook promotion: “like” their Facebook page before January 15th for a chance to win a gift card of up to 3,000L (if you’ve already liked the page, you’re already entered in the drawing). More information about the giveaway HERE.

Shop ‘Til You Drop…

Or… until midnight, when everything goes away! 😯

Last week, Astrid shared some gifts she picked up at the GINORMOUS Shop ‘Til You Drop event. Well, I popped over and picked up a few gifts myself, including this gorgeous gazebo by CONSTRUCT. There’s even a low land impact version in the box, in case your land is overflowing with stuff like mine is.

This really is a lovely and generous gift, especially since you can remove the snow and use the gazebo all year ’round.

Have a fabulous New Year’s, everyone!

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bye Bye Bye

NYE

♫ We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to time ♫

Sorry to see you go… NOT!

To my friends like Ribald here behind me, it’s no secret that 2017 has been very unkind to me. But I have survived (yes, that was in doubt earlier this summer) and will face the new challenges of 2018 with my head held high. So, here’s to you, 2017….  I’m glad we are parting ways.

Another “Auld Lange Syne”

If you still don’t have a suit for your New Year’s Eve soiree. I have just the look for you. Join the Hipnose-Sapzio group and pick up one of their FREE group gifts for this month. The Spazio A43 Outfit is the perfect suit to spend New Year’s Eve in. The white jacket and black pants also include shoes. You can also just wear the jacket without the tie for less formal events.

My best wishes to you and yours in the new year. I hope for smoother sailing for us all…

♫ Reliving, in our eloquence
Another “Auld Lang Syne” ♫

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Complex

Why you have to be so complicated?

I hear that all the time. I just don’t understand why…..

Today’s look features two group gifts. I’m wearing the Rolled Shirt, one of the group gifts that can be found at Complex. This shirt is made for Gianni and Jake bodies, but looks just fine on my Adam body as well. The Complex group does have a 50L join fee, but I’ve received several gifts in this group so far.  My Festive Retro Dunks are the Holiday group gift at Vale Koer. This FREE group gift to members comes fitted in the following styles for men and women: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Gianni. Also included is a HUD switch between flat and ankle locked feet. The Vale Koer group is FREE to join.

Uberman…

With some subtle (and not so subtle) hints from my fellow bloggers, It was decided for me suggested I needed new hair. One of those being the tram G1207 male Hair featured at uber. While not free, I felt of all the hair purchases in the past week (4… FOUR… IKR?) This one looks the most Carson-y. (Thank you Brinlea for the tip.)

Don’t Even Say It

Spirit

Don’t even say it… Don’t even try to tell me “It’s cold outside!“, because it’s minus a billion trillion here (was actually -35c this morning when I got up to shovel… again) and your -15c is sounding fantastic to me…  even tropical!  So I stand here on my front step and “shooooosh” you.

You can’t say it, but you can wear it!

This cute aqua sweater with “Baby it’s cold outside” across the front of it is a free group gift for joining the Paying It Forward group at the Paying It Forward event that runs until the end of the month (updated…  sorry folks!  It ended on 12/25)!  The group is free, and as mentioned previously on FabFree – there are gifts by nearly every designer participating.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

A Change Of Face

You might have noticed I’m looking a little different in my post today and that’s because I have tweaked my shape a smidge so that I could show off a gorgeous new Catwa face applier by Spirit Skins that is available as a free group gift!  You’ll find the Santa Skin under the Christmas Tree at Spirit just at the landing point.  It comes with the Sand skin tone that I am wearing as well as a darker Nut skin tone and a shape that you can adjust to your liking.  This group is normally 100L to join, but today when I checked it was free.  I can’t promise it will be free by the time this is posted or the next day, so act quickly!  There are actually two other clothing gifts there by Spirit and Kitja to snag, so make sure you grab those too!
