Tiny Pearls of Snow

Evergreen

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Sunday to you!  Ripley and I encountered this cute, book-loving duo on the Deciduous sim, and I just had to pose with them to take a snapshot.  Aren’t they both adorable?  Mr. Chippers was busily stuffing his cheeks with Christmas cookies while Peeps was scolding him to save some for a poor, hungry bird.  I do hope there will be at least a few crumbs leftover for him!

White as Newly Fallen Snow

While we were out doing a bit of holiday shopping, the pupster and I paid a visit to Sweet E’s Designs, and I spotted a lovely lacey mini dress on the Midnight Madness board.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a quick tap, and continued on my way.  The next morning when I logged in, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer, and quickly set to work opening the package.  Nestled inside, I discovered the White Lace Dress I had hoped to win the day before.  I added the Maitreya applier, and presto – the bodice of the dress instantly appeared, hugging my every curve.  With its vertical piping, plunging neckline, and four gleaming buttons, this dress is just so pretty.  I love the loose cuffs that you add to the sleeves that give the outfit a romantic feel.  An optional collar and skirt panel completed the look, but since the temperature dipped quite low in my area today, I decided to remove the skirt panel and don a long, flowing maxi skirt instead.  This gift makes an adorable mini dress, but also does double duty as a beautifully textured top as well!

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Maitreya, Eve, Omega, Slink and TMP
  • Jacket, shirt and pants layer for classic avatars
  • Sleeves, collar and skirt panel (skirt panel has varieties for mesh and non mesh avatars)

In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman

Well, Izzie Button actually made the snowmen, and boy are they darling!  Set out under the tree at her shop as a free holiday gift to all, are two adorable pearl snowman earrings, each adorned with a bow tie and top hat.  She also included a texture change HUD so you can alter the hue of the pearls by selecting one of nine color options.  I opted to keep the pearly white tone to coordinate with my top.  You can see them better in my close up photo below.  No group membership is required.  All you need to do is teleport to Izzie’s Mainstore, and look under the tree.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the winter blush Serena mentioned in her post {HERE} as well as candy cane eyeliner that Love blogged {HERE}.

Hello Little Snowman

Sad News for Peeps

I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Chippers stuffed every single cookie from the bench into his cheek pockets.  Poor Peeps!  I promised him that Ripley and I would head over to the farm supply store and pick up some birdseed for him, but I think he was really looking forward to that gingerbread.  Hopefully a full bag of sunflower mix will help to console him.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

All That Jazz

All That Jazz

I got my gladrags on, so let’s cut a rug!  Standing on the edge of the dance floor, I’m just dying to jump in and jitterbug.  Wouldn’t that just be the bee’s knees?

Ok, I’m out of 1920’s parlance.  Nevertheless, the spirit remains:  This dress makes me want to dance!

Speakeasy Sparkle

I was completely inspired by this sparkly shiny dress by Seniha to teleport over to 1920’s New York and frolic with the flappers.  This silver party dress is a great little number for a fun night on the town, or even a hot date!  The detailing is quite superb, and the different shades of silver on the sequins gives a high level of visual interest.  The Amishar Dress is completely free at Seniha designs.  Just join their group for free, and pick up the dress in store.  There are also a few other lovely gifts on the wall for you to check out.

Sizes

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

Princess Vibes

To complete my 1920’s glam look, I added the Princess Tiara from Sn@tch.  I found this lovely filligree accessory at the Winter’s Hollow event, and it is also completely free!  It comes in gold and silver versions, and can be resized easily to fit any hairstyle you may have on!  There are a few other free and cheap gifts at Winter’s Hollow, so jump down and grab ’em.

Time for me to jump on the floor and be the cat’s meow!

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

Oh my goodness, hasn’t this been an amazing week of shopping and gift-getting? Thank goodness SL offers an endless supply of 24-hour coffee shops so we can always find a caffeine pick-me-up to keep us going. 😆

The only thing I love more than December Advent calendars is December Advent calendars that don’t expire after one day! You know, sometimes Real Life happens, and you can’t get in-world one day so you end up missing out on a really amazing gift.

Well, today I bring you glad tidings of TWO stores that have Advent calendars with gifts you can pick up until Christmas!

Advent Adventures

PurpleMoon Creations has once again set out an Advent calendar with beautiful, high-quality gifts. I’m showing you three of them today.

First up is the gorgeous green Velvet Dress, which was the Advent gift for day #7. It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Fitmesh XXS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

The jewelry you see here were also Advent gifts from PurpleMoon. My necklace and earrings were the gifts for day #5, and the pretty snow globe ring was the gift for day #8. I don’t believe the ring is specifically for bento-enabled hands, but it seems to work fine with my Maitreya hands.

Another must-visit Advent calendar is the one at Hello Dave. Each day, there is a new, holiday-themed nail palette for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled (includes Belleza, Empire, and Vista) hands. I’m wearing the day #6 palette, which is white with delicate gold snowflakes.

To receive these – and more! – Advent gifts, you will need to join each store’s in-world group. But it’s a small price to pay for the fabulous gifts you will receive, not only at Christmas, but ALL YEAR LONG, as both stores are extremely generous with gifts. 😀

P.S. Just a note about my shoes by BREATHE: they are still available as a free gift at FaMESHed. But don’t look for them under the Christmas tree; you’ll find them next to one of the concierge tables outside the glass ring. These shoes come with a texture-change HUD and were originally shown in black by Love HERE last month.

Reindeer Games

12-09-2017

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen….

But I bet you don’t recall, the most frustrating reindeer of all. Meet Vexen.  He can be a bit annoying, but he truly means well. And he heard someone was looking for a reindeer to pull her sleigh. As long as she can put up with Vexen’s “personality quirks” , he will make a good driver of her winter carriage.

Grab your boyberrys…

Peace on Earth Hunt gift, geez, people. The FREE Reindeer Costume from boyberry consists of decorated reindeer antlers, a cowl, chest and shoulder holly, boots, a tail, and a strap to cover your bits. It’s a great costume for the less modest reindeer of the herd. It looks like she’s ready to go…. ummm… why is she holding a whip and grinning?

Good Tidings We Bring

SissBoomGGHello FabFree Readers!  There is just so much going on this month with holiday gifts and hunts and events that I am back again today with another post!   I’ll be sending you on a little tour to three stops to pick up some really nice holiday themed gifts!

1.  Siss Boom!

Siss Boom has just released a plaid version of their Winter Sweater as a free group gift for their VIPs!  I have paired it up with the Natural Maxi Dark Skirt which is currently on sale for 60L on the entryway wall.  The Siss Boom inworld group is 500L to join, but when you see the giant shelf of gifts just for you, you will see that between all of those gifts, and future gifts to come – it’s more than worth the fee!

Sizes Included:

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

2.  A Visit To The Arcade!

The Arcade has several gift boxes  sponsored by multiple participating designers under their giant Christmas Tree priced at 0L in the center of the build and I am displaying two of them today.  You may find that if you de-render the tree temporarily, it’s easier to grab the gifts from a birds eye view.

  •  ChicChica Ornament Gift – This cute little break-a-ball has a bento holding animation in it! – FREE
  • AMD Nail Essentials – For Bento Hands, these nails come with a texture change hud for gold, red and green. – FREE

3.  Last, but certainly not least…  “Attention Maci’s Shoppers”!

While I was visiting Maci’s for The Peace on Earth Hunt [HERE], I found that they have some free group gifts scattered about the store with a free group join, and upstairs…  you’ll find The X-Mas Group Gift Holiday Headwear adorned with pine, holly and poinsettia that you see atop my head!

Not Everything is Black and White

12-08-2017

Taking a hunt break….

I’ve been working the Peace on Earth Hunt and I need to take a rest. This hunt has had so many great gifts for us guys and today’s look is no exception. The Peace on Earth Hunt gift from B&T Mesh Studio is the Dual Layer Knit Sweater, Black Jeans & “Blackend” Sharks. The jeans come in regular and muscular sizes and the sweater comes in classic XS-XL sizes. But the real treat of this gift are the “Blackend” Sharks Shoes. These well designed shoes are totally worth making the stop for this hunt gift.

Ski Bunny

Ski Bunny

Well, the snow has finally found me in RL, and I’m not entirely complaining at the moment.  Maybe it’s the fact that it just looks so pretty as it falls from the sky, creating that Marshmallow World we’re all dreaming of.  I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune come January when the cars turn the white snow grey, and slush is pervasive.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts, so it’s time to hit the virtual slopes!

Chubby Bunny

This adorable bunny sweater by Me Sew Sexy will keep me warm on the slopes, and it’s a sweet gift at The Chapter Four event.  Pay a measly 10L to join the group, and pick up piles of gifts!  I literally spent hours unpacking, so the 10L fee is totally worth it.  This cozy sweater comes in two versions:  one with the hood up and one with the hood down, which you can see me wearing in the photo.  I guess it brings new meaning to the term snow bunny!  This gift comes in fitmesh to fit most avatars (Psst – the hood has bunny ears on it!  Eeek – so cute!).

Stock up!

I love wearing cute stockings in the winter, and these ones by Aim Glory are no exception!  How adorable are they?  I love the little reindeer faces!  These stockings are another gift at The Chapter Four and they come with appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Check Meowt!

Pr!tty has been consistently gifting out really amazing hair at events, and I’m very excited to add this one to my collection.  I pretty much love anything which is vaguely cat-like, and so these little lighted ears fit perfectly into my vast horde of cat things!  I especially love the fact that there are several different colour ears in the pack, named such things as “Mistletoe” and “Wrapping Paper” .  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and is very versatile.  Love it!

One More Thing…

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my fave gifts from The Chapter Four, but I had to add in this lipstick applier from Elise.  I love the sparkly look!   There are several different colour options, so you can play in the paint all day long.  In the box, you’ll find appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and TMP as well as System Layers.

I think I hear someone in the background calling me to come skiing.  I’m off to hide in the chalet!  Toodles!

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!
