Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m finally feeling the holiday spirit, thanks to some amazing gifts and deals. So hang on to your sleigh – we’ve got a lot to cover here!

Silver Bells

I was so thrilled when I got the notice that LeLutka was sending out their annual Spirit Tree. This year’s tree is a beauty: snowy green with big, silver decorations. And the best part is that it’s completely FREE!

Just join the LeLutka in-world group (NOT the LeLutka For Me users group) and save a copy from the notices. Or head over to the store to pick one up, if you’d rather. Lots of past group gifts are available (including FREE hair), so be sure to grab those as well, if you haven’t already done so.

The Spirit Tree is resizable with a right-click > edit > stretch. Be sure to watch your land impact, because the tree gets more “primmy” as it gets larger.

More Advent Gifts

[CIRCA] Living is hosting their 8th Annual Advent Calendar, and the gifts are really lovely!

This year’s Advent is a bit different:

  • From Dec 1 – 24, [CIRCA] will be offering a new advent item (up to 4 per day) in a numbered square.
  • This works similar to previous years except there is a new in-world group to join: [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents. It is free to join – just look for the RED group sign beside the large Advent tree on the wall.
  • You must wear your group tag (see above) to buy the contents of each square, except for the 0L surprise days. Each item will be 1L – 75L for any given day in the Advent tree. You can purchase any or all of the gifts for that day.
  • Sometimes there will be bonus squares on surprise days for an extra gift or color variation for group members, so don’t miss those.
  • On the Eve of Dec 24th, the group will be closed. Those still in the group at that time will receive the final gift on Dec 25th.

Sample items are on display in the store, and more will be displayed as the days go on. Each day’s gifts are only available for 2-3 days at a time, so don’t wait too long to check them out!

I’m showing a few [CIRCA] Advent items here (please note that not all are still available):

  • “Northern Forest” Hanging Christmas Words (over fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Holiday Garland 2a -Azure/Silver (on fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Stool – Cocoa Trees (right of fireplace)
  • “Frostine” Snowflake Gift Boxes (under tree – still available at the time of this post)

At the time of this post, days 9 – 12 are still available for purchase, including a really cute FREEBIE on day 9 (you want it, trust me).

Holiday Blues

I’m not feeling the blues, but I’m definitely wearing them! Not long ago, we welcomed I.M. Collection to the Fab Free Designer family. This made me happy because I really love their stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed, lol)!

So today I’m wearing I.M. Collection’s new gift for Fab Free group members, which includes both the dress and heels. Dress sizes include Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as a Fitmesh version. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet.

To pick up your gift, pop on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the I.M. Collection in-world store. You’ll find the Fab Free gift next to the fireplace around the corner.

P.S. If you join the I.M. Collection group for 50L, there are 12 MORE GIFTS for you to pick up, as well as one for SLF&O group members. 😀

Look at These Nails!

Look at These Nails!

Seriously, I am really loving these nails from LIVIA. And the best part is that they are a completely FREE gift for the Women Only Hunt 4.

The Snow Royale nail appliers work on Slink and Maitreya mesh hands, as well as hands that are Omega compatible, such as Vista and Tuty (Omega installer sold separately). Four different designs are included, so depending on your hands, you can wear all the same design, or different designs on each finger, as I’m doing here.

NOTE: This hunt allows decoys, and there is at least one that I found in the store. But hang in there; the “real” snowflake is not too hard to find, especially if you have the clue before you go hunting. 🙂

Snow Chains

Before I end this very long post (sorry!), I want to mention my necklace, which was an Advent calendar gift from Snowpaws. The Metal Snowflake Necklace was the gift for day 4. It is not resizeable, but you can reposition it.

Like the Advent calendars I mentioned previously HERE, Snowpaws’s calendar gifts do not expire after one day, so you can still pick up all the previous days’ gifts. There’s an interesting selection of gifts, including jewelry, accessories, and home decor items. All gifts are completely FREE, and you don’t even need to join a group! 🙂

Enjoy!

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/8/2017 – Jelly Roll

Jelly Roll Store Front
Happy Friday Night Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has had a great week. This week I get the fun of sharing another Fabulous designer with you, Jelly Roll. It is a ladies clothing store that has a familiar feel to it, even though it hasn’t been part of Second Life for all that long. The style at Jelly Roll is fun, fashionable, and super wearable ladies clothing. Most of the clothing at Jelly Roll I would consider casual every-day styles, but you will find some dressier items as well.
Jelly Roll Events & Gifts
When you enter the Jelly Roll shop you’ll find the past, current, and up-coming events on the wall just inside the entrance. As you browse through the store, you’ll see a sign near a cozy looking sofa directing you to the second floor for group gifts and discounts. The Jelly Roll group is FREE to join. Once upstairs, there’s a group Lucky Letter chair, several group gifts, and a set of group-only discounted tops that are just 10 linden each. In the same area there’s also an exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Speaking of the Fab Free group gift, if you missed it Love and Carson did a cute group post titled “As I Wish”  showing the FREE gift. You won’t want to miss out on these fun dinosaur pajamas!

Happy Shopping Fab Free!

The Art of Avoiding the Mall

Crisp Air and a Cozy Sweater

Well hello there, Fabulouses!  I know it’s prime shopping season, and I really should be starting to gradually cross off items on my family members’ wish lists, but I decided to avoid the crowds at the mall the woods were calling us…. so Ripley and I headed for the grove of birch trees at the edge of the forest.  (True confession time…….this time of year where I am in RL, the snowbirds flock to the stores and I dread, dread, dread trying to park and deal with crowds of shoppers).

All Toasty Warm

Although the air was brisk, I was all cozily bundled up in my white woolen sweater, which is part of the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Ashmoot Fashion & Beauty.  Over-sized for a comfy fit, the thick yarn shielded me from the early winter wind.  This pullover features a ribbed waistline and soft, realistic folds in the texture.  Also part of the gift set, my rich burgandy mini skirt contrasts beautifully with the creamy hue of my top.  I love the touches of gold in the pattern sprinkled across the background.  Best of all, since the Fab Free group is completely free to join, I picked up this adorable outfit and still kept my holiday shopping budget fully intact!

What’s Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Classic (one size available but it includes the alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I Know, I Know…

It’s just going to get more and more crowded out there the longer I wait to hit the stores.  I think I should follow Love’s example and do all my shopping online.  I do need to pick up the ingredients for Ripley Snacks in time to bake for the big holiday.  I plan to make a double batch so we can leave some out for Santa’s reindeer, too.  We’d better hop in the truck and get a move on!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
