Welcome Back Darkness

Coming Soon

Hey all! I have a bit of a blowy, witchy cupboard situation going on over here. As much as I loved all the cheery items given out at Christmas, I still love dark fashion and furniture items. I have three awesome freebies to show you tonight so let’s dig in.

New to Me

My updo hairstyle is a free group gift at Vega Design. This is a new-to-me store! The gift comes in a fatpack of colour options and it’s really cute.

Blow Those Doors Open

The cupboards behind me are a free group gift at Boho Soul. The cupboard doors swing open! It’s such a cool gift. Just join their free group and click the gift board. It’s in the same area as their free female & male FabFree gifts, so grab those too when you stop by!

Blow Those Doors Open

Finally, my cross earrings are a free FabFree gift at Afterparty. The pretty earrings include a colour hud that allows you to change the earrings to various metal textures.

See you soon, FabFree!

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!

Sizes

  • Erika
  • Kupra Kups
  • Maitreya
  • 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.

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!

All The Seasons for Witches

Coming Soon

The fall season is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show all things spooky and witchy on the blog. In fact, when I was a FabFree reader, I loved when Pru showed us all of her amazing witchy outfits throughout the year. They were deffinitely an inspiration for me. I love all things witchy, so let’s dig into some witch-themed gifts available on the grid right now!

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Following the end of Halloween at the beggining of November, I was roaming around the grid in this gorgeous green witch skin. Feeling a bit forlorn that the Halloween season was over and designing my costume for next year, I went shopping and exploring in my new green look. I thought I looked cute but you wouldn’t believe the mean comments I got from people about my bright green skin! I guess it’s just not easy being green.

The skin in question is a free gift at Wyrd and despite the bullies out there, it’s an absolutely gorgeous fantasy witch skin. It’s called “Hexed” and you can grab it in-world if you join the free group at Wyrd. It’s also available on the Marketplace for free.

Body Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and appliers for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Ebody Reborn

Head Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and Appliers for:

  • Lelutka Evolution
  • Catwa HD
  • LOGO Enhanced
  • Genus
  • Catwa

Ophelia

The awesome hairstyle I am wearing is a free gift at a new-to-me hair store called Calico. Just join their free VIP group, click the gift board, and a full fatpack of the Ophelia hairstyle will land in your inventory. She’s a beaute! ❤

Another Hunt Down

Third on today’s list are the last goodies I have to share with you all on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. The prizes shown in my witchy scene this afternoon are:

  • The dark blue horns, which are decorated with sunflowers and autumn leaves, are a prize at +Inner Mantra+ and they cost 5 Linden.
  • The frosty-toned blue lipstick I am currently wearing is another hunt prize at +Inner Mantra+, and it costs 5 linden. It comes as a BOM layer.
  • The wall piece with mirrors, greenery, and lights is a decor prize from +Inner Mantra+ that costs 5 Linden.
  • The witch’s cabinet with melting candles is the last prize from +Inner Mantra+ and you can own this pretty and witchy furniture item for only 5 Linden.
  • Finally, my adorable shoes are another hunt prize from Mosquito’s Way. These are the “Marylou” boots and they are free on the hunt.

All of the hints and photos for the hunt can be seen here. It’s been an honour to cover some of the prizes on this hunt. Thank you to the wonderful creators that contributed to this excellent event, and to Aline for organizing it! The hunt ends on November 30th, so make sure you pick up the prizes before the end of this month!

See you soon, FabFree!

Burtonesque

piccy_012 (2) (1)

What’s This?

This scene has some serious Nightmare Before Christmas vibes, with its references to the work of the artist and filmaker Tim Burton. I put my own spin on his creations though, by inserting myself in my “Vimperella” costume.  I even invited Zero (the ghost dog featured in the Nightmare Before Christmas) along for the photoshoot. Yeah, I’m still not really over Halloween and one of the reasons I always loved that film is because it allowed me to keep experiencing Halloween (my actual favourite holiday) at Christmas time when I was a child! Here’s a toast to the Nightmare Before Christmas!

Near the End

Time to get to the gifts! I’m at it again with blogging some of the prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. Today I’ll be showing you a sleek pair of boots and a full Tim Burton-themed scene including a house and other decor on the hunt.

The great pair of purple peep-toe boots I am wearing are a free hunt prize rom NoShot. I just love these boots, and they match some of my favourite outfits.  It addition, NoShot has some more prizes for women, which can be seen in their hunt key here. They also have some gifts for men that were previously blogged by Gabe here.

Sizes Included (Boots)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Burtonesque

Now here is the feature for today- almost everything you see in my “Burtonesque” scene are prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt at Kim’s Kreations. You can see them in both photo’s I’ve posted today.

Coming Soon

The prizes are:

  • A large Burtonesque-style house with cobwebs hanging off of it.
  • A striped black and white pumpkin with a white pumpkin set. (Beetlejuice, anyone?)
  •  The flat black stylized tree- another creation reminiscent of the artistic style seen in Burton’s films and artwork. This piece also includes little black and white striped bats.
  • A “witch planter” which has the legs of a witch sticking out of a pot.
  • The dancing dolls- these are creepy dolls with button eyes that spin around and dance together. They are quite magical yet scary at the same time!

Each prize costs only 1 Linden at Kim’s Kreations.

If you are having trouble finding any prizes on the hunt in the last few days, check out the hints for the prizes here.

Have fun hunting, FabFree!

Apple Fall Haul

Apple Fall Haul

Holeeee Crow, FabFree!! Black Friday has exploded onto the Grid today and one of my all time favorite designers has taken it to heart! We gotta hurry here cause the sale may only last a few hours or a day or two… we don’t know!

Apple Fall is having a HUGE sale on the Marketplace. Everything on the Marketplace is only 50L! EVERYTHING! Even the builds! If it’s on the Marketplace store it’s 50L. I found a few items for less than 50 and a lot of free gifts there too. In fact, every single thing in my picture is free!  Including the Skybox!

I had planned on blogging just all the amazing gifts then *BOOM* huge sale.  So let’s talk quickly about the Group Gifts. If you join the free Apple Fall Group and wander the store… you will find literally dozens of free gifts. Some are easy to find and say “Group Gift” but some are just scattered around the store. You need to mouse over them to see they’re free. Then pop up to the ‘Outlet’ shop and find even more free things and steeply discounted items.

whew, that’s a lot to take in… but get over to Apple Fall and shop your heart out!

Every item pictured – Apple FallFREE/0L – Free gifts for the free Apple Fall group
