Like Being in a Snow Globe

12-12-2017

All shook up…

I’m not going to lie, For me, most of 2017 has felt like I’ve been trapped in a snow globe and just as the snow settles to the bottom, I’m shook up again, and again… rinse and repeat. I most look forward to the briefest of moments when all is calm and I can enjoy a momentary peace.

Getting jiggy…

Today, I’m wearing the Jacket Hoodie, the Dear Santa  Hunt gift from Get Jiggy! The jacket comes in sizes XS-XL and includes a HUD with 19 jacket colors and 8 hoodie colors. All the gifts on the Dear Santa Hunt are just 1L each, or save yourself the bother of looking and just buy it for 25L at the Hunt sign.

I’m NOT Gonna take a Sick Day

12-11-2017

To call off or not to call off…

With only eight days of work left for the remainder of the year, I’m determined not to take a day off for health reasons. There is too much left to do before the year ends and I hate trying to play catch-up.  But the couch does feel comfy, as does the Brent Loungewear I found at Sin Original as part of the Candy Cane 9 Hunt. This 2L hunt has different paths for Men’s, Ladies, and Home and Garden. And the great thing is, there is a photo of the gift on each hunt sign. No need to waste your 2L on items you don’t want.  The Candy Cane 9 Hunt runs until December 25th, so get your gifts before Santa takes them away. Yep, gonna call off today… Ummm…  could someone please hand me the remote? It’s soooooooo far away…..

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!

Merry Christmas Darling

Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

Dear Santa, Bring Me Some Gas

12-06-2017

Out of gas and out of time….

As I was getting dressed for the pre-Christmas party she had planned, She decided we needed yet another tree to let all the guests decorate. Cute idea, but the timeliness of her idea left a little to be desired. So, I hopped in the truck and headed to the wooded area out back to find a suitable tree for her grand scheme. It didn’t take long to find what I wanted and a quick cut and it was in the back of the truck headed home… Easy peasy, right? Long story short, I ran out of gas. She’s on her way with the spare 5 gallon tank, but she isn’t happy….

Seeing Red… and White

Today’s holiday look is the White Shirt with Tie and Gray Slacks from Wilson’s Designs. This outfit can be yours for just 1L on the Dear Santa Hunt. If you don’t fee like hunting, you can just purchase the gift near the hunt sign for 25L. This hunt runs all month long. Don’t miss it!

Be Legendary

Be Legendary

People always go on about the little black dress, but the little red dress holds its own mystique.  You can’t be missed in a room wearing a little red dress, and I guarantee you won’t be forgotten.  Now, if that dress is made of latex or leather, then you’ve entered the realms of the legendary.  Luckily for you pretty little things, I know where you can get a very eye-grabbing sexy red latex dress…for free!

A Great Choice

There have been some fantastic posts covering the Peace on Earth hunt here on Fab Free, and I found my own fave gift after hunting high and low for that little globe.  The effort paid off, because I got my very own free legendary little red dress!  The detailing on it is quite remarkable, and I highly enjoy the way it looks under lights.  Head down to Daddy’s Choice Designs and find your own little red dress to be the centre of attention at your holiday party!

Sizes

  • Sizes XXS-L and an Alpha Layer
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

More Hair!

My sleek hair is a gift at Sintiklia, who have just moved to a new sim!  There are several different hairstyles out for 1L each, no group join required.  If you are interested in joining the group for 100L, there are a further 4 group gifts and 6 group lucky boards full of other delectable hairstyles.  You’d better hurry up though, this gift won’t be available for long!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some people who want to stare at me with their mouths open in awe for a while.

Soon… True Peace

12-04-2017

Finally….

We have come to a peace accord. I am no longer allowed to mention “the chair”, the incident, the attempted murder, or how the chair was really mine. (I did call “dibs” first!) Also, I am to complement her daily (while trying to hide my eye rolls as I say them). And for her part of the peace treaty, she is to smile and say thank you every time I give her said complements. I think I could have gotten a better deal….

We are both NUTS!

We decided to take a leisurely stroll outside in the fresh snow. We even put on our FREE matching sweaters (so we didn’t fight over who got to wear what)  from NUTS Inc. that we found on the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The his and hers Britt and Niels Sweaters come in the following sizes:

For Her…

  • Mesh XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

For Him…

  • Sizes S-L + Alpha Layer
  •  2 Fitmesh sizes

That Peaceful, Easy Feeling…

It didn’t take me long to intentionally trip  playfully shove her down in a snow drift. I ended up down there with her. (she my be small but STRONG).  And after a bit of snow throwing (how I ended up on the bottom, I don’t know, but I was watching out for any object that could be placed over my face) she looked up and pointed out a dove flying overhead. Maybe we will have peace after all. Another FREE gift to be found on the Peace on Earth Hunt is the Soon True Peace pose from Something New . This lovely couples pose includes the dove, the symbol for peace. It may also be a nice pose for the traditional couples Christmas Card. I only hope peace lasts at least through the holidays….

Sass and Snowflakes

Warm Winter
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s nearly December?! It seems like just a little bit ago we were talking about Halloween and now Thanksgiving has come and gone. We have been having such mild weather where I live that it doesn’t feel like winter is on the way. I suppose that’s one of the fun things about Second Life, it can be any season you like at any time, and the weather never affects your wardrobe.

Sass

The cute knotted tank top Pru is wearing is a recent group gift at Sass. I love the silliness of the dancing/posing unicorn. Unicorns are always awesome anyway. This FREE group gift from Sass comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours head over to Sass and join the FREE-to-join in world group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There are quite a few group gifts up for grabs at Sass, so don’t miss out!

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya

Exxess

Speaking of cute and awesome, I think this hairstyle from Exxess definitely fits both categories. Not only is the snowflake headband super fun, it also has a color change hud with several preset colors to pick from. The hud also lets you change the color of the snowflakes and the band part of the headband separately. Also, this hairstyle from Exxess is animated! There is a “Breeze” version of this style that has a little movement to the hair which gives the illusion of wind. How do you get your copy of this playful winter hairstyle? You can get it on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. There are two color huds for the hair with tons of color options.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

My Heart Will Go On

Right Here Waiting...

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Since Ripley and I had such good luck with our last hunt (you can see my post {HERE}), we decided to hit the trail again.  We came away with this strappy beauty, which is a Sexy Christmas Hunt prize from Waffles.  In a rich shade of crimson, my Flame Crepe gown hugged all my curves and fell to ground level where it flared gracefully at my feet.   I felt so sleek and elegant in this frock!  It features a back that dips low, as well as a dramatic neckline, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The prize package, which costs only 1 little Linden dollar, includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up this dress for yourself, journey over to Waffles, and search for the red phrase “sexy” somewhere in the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Sunglasses at Night

I wear my sunglasses at night
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I dusted off Ripley’s tracking harness and we hit the trail over at Brii Underground’s The School Girl Hunt.  With the pupster’s talented nose, we were able to ferret out all ten hunt prizes.  Tonight’s post features one of my favorites.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

Why Couldn’t My Old School Uniforms Look Like This?

Back in the day, when I attended high school, we had to wear uniforms, but they didn’t look anywhere near as cute as the Mijam School Style Complete Outfit that I’m wearing today.  With a chocolate shirt and brown and black plaid overalls, this outfit is downright adorable.  It features a narrow waistline that leads to a comfortably flared skirt, which ends at mid thigh level.  The designer even tucked coordinating stockings and heels into the package.  There’s also a jaunty beret, but I chose not to wear it in my photo.  As soon as I tried Mijam on, I fell in love with its deep, rich color scheme.  The best part?  This entire outfit cost me just two little lindens, a bit of search time, and a few Ripley snacks as a reward for you-know-who.  There is a hunt board near the front of the Brii Underground store that dispenses a hint note card to give you a boost if you get stuck, but honestly, the pupster and I were able to complete the entire hunt in just one evening.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP
  • Stocking applier for Maitreya, Omega and Slink (also includes stockings on socks layer for classic avatars)
  • Omega Make Up Applier for Catwa Head (includes make up on tattoo layer for classic avatars)

If you like this outfit as much as I do, don’t delay in traveling to Brii Underground.  The School Girl Hunt runs through November 30th, so you only have a few days left.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
