Christmas Lights All Over Town

The Lights Have a Mind of Their Own

The pupster and I picked up a couple of more hunt items that really got me into the holiday spirit.  I was even motivated to dig out the box of Christmas lights and start decorating.  Notice I said “start.”  Those string lights must have spent all summer knotting themselves up inside their storage container.  Last year, when I put them away, they were neatly coiled.  I don’t know what happened… all I can say is those things have a mind of their own.  It took quite awhile to get the whole mess untangled.  Well, at least I had my wrap top and ribbon choker to keep me looking beautiful in the midst of the snarled jumble.

The Colors of the Season

I just love the bright contrast between red and green in my new Rhea Wrap Top that I picked up over at [QE] Designs.  This fabulous prize from The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt set me back just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  I’m all about hunting down delicious gingerbread cookies (yum!), and when I can scoop up budget friendly goodies as well as cookies, you can count me in!  Featuring long sleeves, a cropped hemline and a curve-hugging wrapped design, this little number is full of holiday cheer.  The package also includes a texture change HUD, which enables you to select a cotton or knit fabric as well as to customize the color on each half of the shirt.  You can have one side red and the other green as I have done, or you can have a solid green or solid red color scheme.  It’s great to have options!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Jingle Belles

My Jingle Belle necklace from Cog and Fleur offered the chipper tinkling of a trio of jingle bells as I struggled to unravel the stubborn string of lights.  The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt gift also included a coordinating pair of earrings that I opted not to wear for my photo.  This bauble set will provide the ideal finishing touch for your outfits throughout the holiday season.  To add this jewelry set to your collection, all you have to do is teleport to the shop, locate the cookie concealed inside, and pay one Linden dollar.

Now that I’ve finally unscrambled the unruly lights, I’d better finish what I started and get to work hanging them up.  Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Grumpy Old Saint Nick

You Had Me at Meow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Since we have been having good luck lately, Ripley and I decided to continue hunting this weekend.  Along the trail of The Grumpy Santa Hunt, we found the cutest silvery romper for just 1 Linden dollar.  This outfit certainly got me in the mood for the song Silver Bells and some holiday shopping.  Well, that is until I went to Walmart in RL, and changed my mind about the shopping part.  The traffic and crowds {shudder} …. bring me shopping on SL any day!

If THIS is What Santa Brings When He’s Grumpy…

…I can’t imagine how wonderful his gifts are when he is chipper!   With large gray snowflakes scattered across a dark silver background and cozy metallic tights, the Kawaii Romper from BlondeQueen has a definite wintry vibe.  I really like the way the material shimmers in the light.  The shirt portion is a tube top style with no sleeves or neckline, so I added a warm fuzzy jacket before heading out to explore the Snow Falls sim.  My feet are covered up by my fur wedge boots, but underneath, the leggings extend all the way past the heel, so your ankles will stay cozy warm no matter how hard Jack Frost tries to chill you.  (The jacket and boots are not part of the prize.)  To grab a copy of this outfit for yourself, all you have to do is teleport to the shop and look for the lump of coal that Santa left.  After that, pay one Linden dollar and you’ll have yourself a merry little outfit.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until next time, happy hunting!

Get Ready for Cookies and Cocoa

The Song the Heart Sings

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I decided to check out the Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt this week.  One thing I love about this hunt is if you have time to invest in searching around for the hunt object, which is a gingerbread man, you can pick up some fabulous prizes for just one little Linden dollar each.  If you are in a hurry, or if you just can’t locate the elusive cookie, you have the option to pay 25 Linden dollars and scoop up the prize.

Just Waiting for a Waltz to Begin

I guess I must have attending holiday parties on my mind, because our first discovery while hunting is this lovely formal frock from Georg Bellic Design.  The Belle Gown hugs your curves, but has a wide, sweeping hemline to make it easy to glide gracefully across the dance floor.  Its sleeveless design shows off your slender arms and its open back contrasts beautifully with the full coverage on the front.  Elegant silvery feathers scattered across the background fabric provide a glimmering accent.  The prize package includes styles for popular mesh body avatars as well as versions for classic avatars, so there is something for everyone.  A coordinating men’s outfit is also tucked inside the package.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

We’re off to do some more exploring, and will return soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Dance With Me?

Dance With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  Stan and I teamed up to do some hunting along the Candy Cane 10 Hunt trail and found a really cute matchy-matchy prize over at MishMash Fusion.  We just had to celebrate by teleporting off to the Let it Snow sim for a romantic dance.  I really love the red candy cane stripes on both my dress and Stan’s vest.  They are just so bright and cheerful!  If you are looking for a coordinated outfit to wear with your significant other to a holiday party, this might be just up your alley!

On Her:  The Sweetest Frock

My Rocketpop Dress offers a full skirt for elegant swirls on the dance floor as well as halter style neck straps that are reminiscent of holiday ribbons.  Cherry colored buttons, a red sash around the waist and a red and white hemline complete the look.  The package includes versions for mesh avatars as well as sizes for classic avatars, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.  Since all you need to invest to pick up this party frock is a bit of time searching and two little Linden dollars, you’ll look like you spent a bundle, but will have plenty left in the coffers for all your holiday shopping.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

On Him:  A Dapper Suit

Stan’s Etienne Suit features a red shirt, white tie, striped vest and an elegant white color scheme.  The touches of crimson provide the perfect coordination with the Rocketpop dress without looking too overdone.  All the pieces are worn at once, so there is no fussing around trying to get the different elements to fit together.  With one click, you’ll be ready to sweep her off her feet.  Just like Kat’s prize, the package includes versions for Classic as well as a variety of mesh body styles, all for just two Linden dollars (and a bit of searching time).

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We’re off to see what else we can discover as we continue down the hunt path.  The event lasts until December 25th and features stops at a variety of stores.  The pupster is hoping maybe there will be a box of Ripley snacks hidden somewhere along the way.  Luckily, I have a freshly baked batch waiting at home.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Just in the nick of time….

In the nick of time

After my last post imploded on us… I felt I needed to really scramble and get something good posted up for y’all. Then I remembered a little Hunt I did a while ago and the super cute dress and boots I got for just 1L from The Sissy Bar! But there is no time to lose on this one!!

Last Minute Goodness

This is the ‘TSB Sweater and skirt’ from The Sissy Bar. You can hunt this cutie down as part of the Holiday Feast Hunt for 1L. It comes with the awesome boots and the brown tights too! The whole outfit is really well built and I’ve been wearing it around the Grid and collecting compliments all day.  Here’s the catch… the hunt ends TODAY! Some designers do leave Hunts up longer than the expiration date but don’t count on it. The Sissy Bar has a ton of Hunts going on now and coming up in the future so be sure to check it out!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • Standard Fitmesh

Having a Snow Day

I have removed the post for Junk’s Winter Knit Sweater Dress because the “designer” and store have completely disappeared. I think I got duped. Which irritates me to no end. I can’t help but think something shady was going on. FabFree in no way condones the theft of intellectual property or underhanded dealings.
