Floating Away

Floating Away

Woohoo FabFree!  It’s Cozyfest time!  I’ve been waiting patiently here on this floating cloud, ready to drop down into this pile of awesomeness… ok fine, maybe I haven’t been, but I HAVE been waiting anxiously.  Come on, let’s get to it!

So Cozy

This amazing event organized by the people behind Fifty Linden Fridays is bursting with free gifts and 50L deals.  Today I’m showing off some of the 50 Linden finds that are just too good to pass up.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • 50L dress by Entice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy and Maitreya Petite
  • 50L glasses by Duckie available in several colours
  • 50L pose, cloud and balloons by Lyrium

Oh man…there’s so much more to see and grab.  You’ll love it!  Cozyfest is running until February 4th, so you’ve got plenty of time.  And if it’s full, don’t worry, it just opened.

Have fun!

Time to Celebrate

Time to Celebrate

I’m suddenly in the mood to celebrate!  Could it be all this awesome free decor I got?  Or perhaps it’s the mythical call of the cake….hmmm….

With Panache!

Right so this might be something you have to do in fast forward if you would like the pretty cake from Dahlia I am about to eat…. Anyway, let me get you the info.  If you join the free Panache Events group, then look in group notices, you’ll find this lovely cake from Dahlia, as well as the amazing streamers, balloons and posing frame from Elm.  The HUD to change the colour of the streamers and the words at the bottom of the posing frame are INSANELY amazing.  So many choices.  Gifts are slated to drop every two weeks in this group, and the Dahlia cake is sure to disappear very soon.  Join the group ASAP and get your mitts on these amazing free gifts!

Copy and paste this key into chat to join the group: secondlife:///app/group/36a7347f-5761-879c-dffc-ae4905fd09ec/about

Let’s party!

Another Year Over, A New Ones Just Begun…

nearly new years

Hey Faboos!

I can’t believe that another year has gone by.  And covid is still as prevalent as it was when it started.  Ugh.  I hope 2022 will be the year we all say enough already and do whatever has to be done to take our lives back from this virus!

I know things will never be the same as they were pre-covid, but maybe it has brought some positive into our lives too.  Like appreciating day to day things we took for granted, friends, family, hugs, shopping!  Even appreciating just getting up in the morning and feeling *good*.  Perhaps it came to teach us to shift our perspective and be grateful for all the little wonderful things, as simple as waking up to a new day (some people don’t, and one day, you won’t either).

It makes me think of one of my favorite movies Dead Poets Society.  Mr. Keating (Robin Williams) tells his class to seize the day, make your life extraordinary while you can.  The powerful play goes on and YOU get to contribute a verse.  What will your verse be?  Let 2022 be the year we all live in state of gratitude, seizing the day with those we love and contributing our powerful verse.  What legacy do you hope your life will create?

Where was I?

I got a bit sidetracked there.  The turning of a new year always makes my thoughts get deeper than they normally are (and that’s saying something!!!).

I’m getting ready for the new year and I’m doing it in style!  This sexy little number is the latest free group gift from Pink Cream Pie.  It has several colors to choose from and also a sheer option.  The group is 314 to join and there is an entire wall of group gifts for your shopping pleasure.  This one fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn

My hair, which you have seen all over the Fab Free Blog by now, thanks to Aline & Jacx.  Now you get to see it in my signature blonde, this is of course the new free group gift from Truth.  Their VIP group is 350L to join and the hair is in the recent notices.

A New Year Right Around the Corner

I’ve also got some fun New Year’s Deco for you.  My 2022 numbers are the final Advent Day from Simply Shelby.  In fact the final advent day gives you an entire New Year’s Eve Prep Kit that I think is pretty darn nifty!  Even though the advent is past, you can still grab them all for only 10L.  As of this posting they are all still available.

I also headed over to the Okinawa Holiday Event where they are lots of free gifts to grab, with no group needed.  I found this adorable hair flower Free by Ayame and I absolutely love having my own New Year’s Ball which is 75L at Ever Green.  Really it is made that you wear it and you can walk around on it, which is lots of fun, but for the photo I needed to stand still, so.  But I love it for decor, it turns and it changes all sorts of beautiful iridescent-y colors!  Really gorgeous!

Have a Hap-Hap-Happy New Year! (Rudolph’s Shiny New Year Song)

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland
Hiya, got a hot one for you, Let’s dive into some hunting and decor!

Say Hello To My New Friends

Like all us Fabfree folks, I like free. And for umpteen years now, the best free spot in SL is, of course, Free Dove. You just can’t beat this deal, for a free group space, you get introduced to new creators without the bite to the wallet. Not that I can remember just how I got to know Free Dove, I would imagine it was via our own Fabfree Blog. And since that time I have been referring all the noobies, I see there. LOL. A bonus perk of this fab group is the monthly hunts. For just a tad bit of your time, you can pick up 10 items from the hunt for free. And they sure pack the hunt with goodies! This month there are 3 creators to hunt for, that’s 30 free items. Woohoo to that. Jacx is modeling the free Tastic Ella Sweater, so cute with its winter pattern in sweet pink & off-white color. You can wear it as a dress or like Jacx a big sloppy sweater with leggings, just right for cleaning up after Christmas day. Drop over to Free Dove, look around, join the free group, hunt you up some awesome clothes. The hunt runs till Dec. 31st, so you still have a bit of time to work on making room in your inventory for more goodies. 🙂

Goodbye Snowbound

Yay!  Raindale is free to join for the holidays! This is a big saving, a truly great group, with an extremely generous and all-around super nice creator Kiera. And the bonus is a lot of group gifts just waiting for you to decorate with.  In my post, I used the whimsical topiary tree and fairy grass to create this lovely winter scene.

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Happy Christmas everyone!  I’ve just nipped away from my RL festivities to make sure I don’t forget all my inworld peeps on this most auspicious of days.  I hope that you’re all enjoying yourselves, however you can, while still being safe and happy and filled with really good food.  I won’t natter incessantly, let’s get to the gifts!

I’m a Pro

Over at Promagic, it’s time for a new FREE subscriber gift!  This really lovely top, skirt and shoes all came free in the box and they’re all so pretty.  All three items come with very extensive HUDs to change the colours and some of the textures too.  You can even change the shade of the applique leaves on the bustier – plus there’s also a hat in the box too if you feel like being a bit jaunty. To get your own, all you have to do is click on the big subscriber sign when you land at Promagic.  Already subscribed but no gift is forthcoming?  Just unsubscribe and resubscribe and it will be sent to you right away (worked for me!).  Yay!

  • Erika
  • Kupra Kups

  • Legacy
  • Tonic Fine

Generous Kim

The very lovely Kim of Kim’s Kreations is always so generous.  She has piles of gifts out at her shop, and they are constantly being switched out for other grand designs.  Today is the last day of her advent calendar (which is free for everyone – just pay 0L!) and inside you’ll find a really gorgeous and extensive set of decor called the Ivory Dreams Flying Skybox.  You can see all the parts right behind me in the photo – a fireplace, chairs, tables, artwork, candles, an ottoman… and even the very cool surrounding skybox that has a floating curtain so you look like you’re hanging out in the breeze.  It’s very striking and so much fun to play around with all the parts to set them up however you like.  If you haven’t picked up the past gifts either – they’re still all out for free, for everyone!  Get over there, don’t miss out on this amazingness – and give Kim your support while you’re at it, she really is a kind, generous soul.

Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!  Whatever you celebrate – or if you don’t celebrate at all, I wish you and yours the very best this season.  Thank you all for being here, for sharing the grid with us, and for making us a part of your Second Lives.

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!
