Scritches for Jack

Scritches for Jack

When I was just a very little kid, I took horse back riding lessons and fell in love with my lesson horse. His name was Jack. He was a sweet old horse and I still think about him. I’m not able to keep a horse where we live now in real life, so I have my “Jack” here in Second Life. And like the RL jack, this one loves his scritches too.

If you’re going out… take a sweater!

It’s still pretty cold in my little corner of the Grid. So I was pleased to see Jazzixa Casalet for Prism set out this cozy set of Sweater, jeans and boots as the January group gift. That’s right, you get a complete outfit including the boots all for free for us Group members. And double yay… the group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Straighten up my crown

I’ve been shopping at the Epiphany again. This time I played the heck out of Doe’s “Yas Queen” Gacha. I was lucky enough to pull my own set of ginger pretty quickly. But I’ll be going back for the little crown that’s also in the Gacha. Too cute! Each hair comes with a HUD to style the bangs two different ways as well.

Looking for Winter

Looking for Winter

As much as I’d like to pretend we get real winter weather here in Texas… we don’t. I have a real life closet full of cute winter boots and coats that get no love. If I want snow… I have to get on the grid!

Fuzzy Elegance

It seems like an oxymoron, but this fantastic hat, coat and boots set is just that. Fuzzy and elegant. This is the ‘Fur Pocket Winter Coat’ set and it is one of the In-Store gachas at Amiable’s main store. You get the coat, the boots, the great fuzzy hat AND the sweater all for 65L per play. I was lucky enough to pull one of the two rares and got the cream colored coats and a HUD for the sweater with eight color choices. Amiable has a ton of gacha machines in store right next to the ton of past Group Gifts, all ready for us bargain hunters!

Sizes Included

  • One size Fit Mesh (I had no problems fitting it to Maitreya at all)

Let’s Go – Summer is Waiting!

Summer is Waiting

Hello there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of done with winter and its viruses!  Ripley and I decided to make a break for summer.  We’ve got the car packed up, I’m wearing a brand new outfit that I picked up for free, and the pupster has his favorite fetch toys stowed away right next to the box of Ripley Snacks.  There’s plenty of room if you want to join us.  Hop on in!

She’s a Wild Child

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL Group, you can pick up my entire outfit for free over at the Alias! shop.  Featuring a tie dye halter top, cut off denim jeans shorts with a narrow suede belt, and cute tip toe sandals, Wild Child is ideal for an impromptu visit to summer.  The generous designer tucked a color change HUD for the shirt and the heels into the gift box, which gives you the choice between 12 different color schemes.  As you can see, the shoes and top coordinate beautifully together!  Besides the fact that the entire ensemble is completely free, the best part is that it includes versions for classic avatars as well as for mesh bodies!  There is a note inside the folder which explains that if you have an Ebody or Tonic mesh body, the outfit may or may not fit your avatar depending on your shape and the alpha included with your mesh body.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Top – Standard Size in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shorts – Fitmesh Classic XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

I almost forgot my sunscreen!  We’re going to make a pit stop on the way to grab some SPF50, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks for the road.  We’ll be leaving soon, so don’t delay if you’re up for a trip, too.  Until next time, bye bye winter colds and flu…. I am SO over you!!

After a long weekend of busy and running around, I am happy to get back on the Grid for some relaxation.  So I headed straight to my new favorite place to wander: Soul2Souls Highlands.

Roses for days

Luckily I had a brand new outfit to wander about in. I especially pleased with my new jeans. These are the ‘high waisted boot cut jeans’ from the Sissy Bar. These are the 1L Hunt prize for the New Years Hunt running until January 31. Just find the little red question mark somewhere in the store and they can be yours too!

Staying Cozy

I needed a nice cozy top to go wandering, these Highlands are still pretty chilly, ya know. So I made a stop on the marketplace to find the perfect new sweater. And !gO! was my “Go -to”. This is the ‘Balbina’ sweater and it’s a 1L gift from !gO! on the marketplace. There are several great 1L gifts on !gO!’s page so check those out too.

Sizes Included

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy hunting!

Happy New Year, indeed!

Happy New Year, indeed

We are a week and a half into the new year but I think it’s still time to say “Happy New Year”! Why not, right? 2019 is rolling along and I still want it to be “Happy”!

Happy X three

Hilly Haalan must agree because there is not one, but three “Happy New Year” free gifts set out for us. They are all lovely but this one is my favorite. This is the ‘Katelyn’ sweater and the ‘Kylie’ leggings. The gorgeous scarf is removable and resizable for a perfect fit. The gift also has a fantastic pair of stiletto heels to match. Just join the Hilly Haalan group, which is free to join, and help yourself to a ton of great current and past gifts. You will not be disappointed!

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L

New Year, Fresh Start

New Year's Walk

Hello Fabulouses!  So, one of my goals for the New Year is to go for more walks and get some more exercise.  Since I’m still sick in RL (started antibiotics today, so I should be feeling better soon), I’m gonna have to get today’s exercise on SL.  Ripley and I went for a stroll over at the Lemon Beach sim.  I can’t always say that I would wear the outfits I blog on SL in RL, but I definitely would wear today’s!

A Jeans and Hoodie Kind of Day

I love my real life jean jacket and I was super excited to see that Complex is offering a Denim Jacket/Hoodie combo as a free group gift.  Fellas, this is designed for you all, but I just had to have it for myself (sorry, Stan, but you can go get your own – did I mention it’s FREE?).  The best part about this set is that it comes with a texture change HUD so you can alter the color of the hoodie and its lining.  You’ll have 11 choices for the hoodie, which include patterns as well as solids, and 4 options for the lining.  The jacket comes in one size only – fitted, but as you can see, I was able to wear it just fine on my Maitreya mesh body.  Since it’s from a men’s clothing store, I’m sure it will work just as well for the guys, too.  There is no alpha layer for classic avatars, but it’s worth a shot if you have a classic avi, after all, it is completely free.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you have to be a member of the Complex Updates Group, but there is no join fee.

I hope you are having a great week.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Little Blue After All

A Little Blue after all

Merry Christmas, FabFree-ers! I don’t know about y’all but I am ready for some relaxing after all the day’s excitement. The presents, the cooking… and the eating. Plus, there’s still pie let to enjoy too! But even with all the festivities, I found a little time for some ‘on the Grid’ fun.

Snowflakes everywhere!

First up is my sweet new hair style. This is Limerence’s free gift for us all at the Winter Shop and Hop Holiday shopping Event – “Snowy.” This seasonal cutie comes with the ‘Ombre’ color HUD and a HUD to add the delicate snowflakes. Just find the Limerence booth at the event before it ends on January 4

Blue Snowflakes, too

You only have five days left to hunt down the prizes for the Peace on Earth Hunt. It’s all over on December 31rst. I could let the Hunt pass me by without picking up this cozy off the shoulder sweater from #BYE-Best You Ever. This is the ‘Winter sweater’ and it’s the free prize for the Hunt.

Sizes Included

  • FitMesh XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Blue Christmas? Nope! RED!

Blue Christmas Nope! RED!

The Cart Sale is in full swing and as usual…it’s awesome! I mean, seriously… who doesn’t love great designers wishing us Happy Holidays with sweet shopping for only 10L? And when I find a New-To-Me designer and it’s at the Cart Sale? Double Awesome!

The Cats Meow

CatsClaw is a the New-To-Me designer I’m talking about. I was wandering the Sale and was stopped in my tracks with a, “Ooooh… I like that!” This is the ‘Ava Corset Mini Dress’ and it’s worth the “oooh”. You get a very nice HUD (with a larger version for us half blind Bloggers) that offers twenty three colors/textures for the dress and six textures for the corset. Sounds great, right? There’s more. You can change the sheerness on the dress, there’s a Full Bright switch, and a glow intensity switch. Plus, three poses for ease of editing.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • FitMesh

Boots! Need I say More?

KoKoia, another New-To-Me designer, is saying Happy Holidays as well with these cute boots. These are the ‘Anouk Boots’ and they are the December Group Gift. Just join the FREE group and pay the vender 1L (you’ll immediately get it back) and they’re yours.

Take a Breather

Take a breather

I’m taking a page for Pru and Aline’s book…. or from their posts… and taking a minute to find some calm. Take a break, so to speak. The Holiday season is always full to the brim with presents and shopping and decorating and baking and eating and parties… Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it all.  So I took a minute… and a glass of a very nice adult beverage and took a breather.

Merry Christmas

Amid all the hustle and bustle, so many of my favorite designers have shown us their holiday spirit and given their groups some lovely gifts. S@bbia, one of those favs, has really out done herself and given us this beautiful cozy outfit just to say “Merry Christmas”. Each piece here, the boots, the skirt and the sweater are all separates. It’s like getting three gifts in one. Use the sweater to top some cute jeans or add those delicious boots to a mini skirt. It’s all up to you! Just join the S@bbia Group, it’s FREE and get your “Merry” on.

Sizes Included

  • Fitmesh – one size
