Heyya FabFree! I don’t know about you guys but it’s still pretty cold and snowy in my neck of the real life woods. In fact, I finally got to wear my super cute new snow boots today for the first time. ‘Cause when they talk about “lake effect snow” up here… they ain’t kidding around.  So I wanted to do a post with cold weather gear or boots or coats and SpectacledChic’s gacha “Better Days” at the Epiphany event is just the thing!

I was so lucky to get the Rare for this cozy set right off the bat. It’s always the way when I want a common ( I thought the common blouse was sooo pretty) I pull a Rare. But what the heck, the Rare is pretty cute too. The Rare coat and under shirt comes with a HUD for ten coat colors/patterns,  three colors for the buttons and eight colors for the undershirt.  The coat is a really nicely built item and had gorgeous details and textures. It also comes with the “hands in your pockets” pose and proper alpha built in.

There are eight colors for the rest of the gacha commons – a simple blouse, a solid colored skirt and a cute bucket type hat. There is also a second Rare in a plaid colored skirt.  All this for just 75L per play!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Epiphany runs until February 12 so don’t miss out!

A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

It was high time to head to the beach.  After a long day of work, buried under pages and pages of who knows what drivel,  I looked at my watch and thought “you know…I need some vitamin sea today”.  I put on my unnecessarily complicated sandals (but so fashion!) and slipped into something summery then headed down to feel a bit of warmth.  I was ever so glad to have brought my camera with me, just so I could capture a bit of summer and carry it with me wherever I went afterwards.  A few snaps of palm fronds will keep me going until I can escape again!

Feeling Lucky

I was a bit inspired for some warmth today after I saw the newest lucky boards at Luas.  This cute little outfit had me dreaming of warmer climes the minute I saw it (you have the option to add or remove the tied jacket)!  To gain access to the lucky boards at Luas, just join their group for 50L, then wait for your letter to come up!  There are also loads of really great group gifts for you to pick up while you’re there, making this group join fee ever so worth it.

Roman Sandal Empire

Looks like Empire are having a bit of an item retirement sale at the moment.  The store isn’t shutting down, but all items in the store are on sale before they disappear forever, making room for the new.  Pretty much ever pair of shoes and accessories are 199L (some 99L!) for fatpacks, which is an awesome deal.  However, what caught my eye was the 35L per pull gachas you’ll find at the back of the store.  I got these awesome sandals as well as the fun glasses for just 35L each.  Worth a shot!

Holly and Jolly

Holly and Jolly

Hey FabFree! So… are you sick to death of freebies and gifts and gachas? NO?  Well, of course not! Me neither! And I found a little of each of those for our post today.

I got a notice for the Naughty List Event from Evil Bunny Productions this week. Or maybe last week… I don’t know. But I do know if it’s EBP, it’s going to be good! So I headed over. And, boy, was I right. Tons of booths with great designers and exclusive items and special 10L “gifts” too.

Let’s start with my super cute little holly dress. This is “Let It Snow” dress from Tameless. Yeah, I didn’t know Tameless was doing such awesome clothes as well as hair now either. And it’s a lovely little dress at that. The details are perfect and the texture is so pretty.  Let it Snow is Tameless’ 49L per play gacha at the event. There are six colors to win, with the rare being red and including some cute Christmas accessories. Oh… and you might get an extra surprise in your Gacha prize….

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My new hair style is also at the Tameless booth. This is “Wendy” and you can pick it up with a “Naturals” color HUD for just 10L.  All of the special “gifts” are just 10L and some of them, like ‘Wendy’ here are more than worth that small price.

The Naughty List Event runs until December 31st.

Lastly, we have my adorable green Santa hat from FashionGeekstyle. This is the current group gift and I think it’s just right for the Holiday. Everyone has red Santa hats… but the emerald green suits me perfectly! The FashionGeekstyle group is free to join so Merry Christmas to us!

Chilly

Coming Soon

It’s cold outside! I’m chilly and had to run out of my family event to get some alone time. Sometimes these holiday events are overwhelming and you just need to take a breather. They are a good excuse to dress up though. 

Gotcha, Gacha

The Elegant Swirls Gacha by Ari Pari is just amazing, and it is currently exclusive at the 4 Seasons event December round. At 50 L per pull you can win the heels, top, or skirt I have on in various colours. I love this outfit. Ari Pari has a free gift out at the 4 Seasons December round as well, so go check it out!

More Floaties and a Free 500 L Store Credit!

I am so into these floaties this year. This time, I am showing off some adorable snowman floaties that hang around your head. So cute. I love these guys! You can get them for free at the EscalateD booth at the Shop and Hop. The Winter Shop and Hop is huge and it’s open until January 3rd! Enjoy all the free gifts there! In addition to these adorable snowmen, EscalateD is also gifting everyone 500 L in store credit at their booth. I ran over to the main store and grabbed this hairstyle Noel with my credit, which I’ve been eyeing for a while. This hair includes a style hud, 2 colour huds, and the hat. It’s perfect for Christmas. Enjoy this amazing free credit gift, Fab Free, and all the other wonderful gifts at the Shop & Hop!

Thank for reading, Fab Free!

North Pole Sparkle

North Pole Sparkle

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree! We made to the weekend! WHOOT!  And now, it’s time to relax, do some hunting and hit the granddaddy of the Gacha events… The Arcade! I always look forward to the Arcade and all those fantastic gachas. And I usually spend way too much. But, hey, Lindens are for spending, right?

So this December round, I spent a lot of lindens playing Dirty Princess’ “North Pole Princess”. Usually, I avoid the gachas where the Rare is the one thing that makes the outfit. But this set was so cute, I had to try. There are only three items to win: the boots ( with a solid white color as the other rare), the earrings and the rare coat. I got so lucky. I pulled three sets of earrings, one set of common boots then bingo! The rare coat.  It made my day!  So head over to the Arcade and try your luck.

Sizes Included for both boots and coat

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

Dreamer

Dreamer

For I have always been a seeker, a dreamer, and a ponderer on seeking and dreaming.

~ H.P. Lovecraft

Seeking and dreaming. I like that. And here I thought Lovecraft was all demons and Deep Ones.  And if you thought the Call of Lovecraft event was all hunt you’d be mistaken too. I found a lovely Victorian look Gacha from Antaya there!

This is the Clementine Gacha and amazingly, it’s only 25L per play! Look at this gorgeous gown… 25L! In fact, I put this entire outfit together for just 75L in pulls. I wasn’t able to get the little top hat fascinator but I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Gown.  Everything is so beautifully made, every detail is perfect! Add a few holiday touches and this would be perfect for Christmas, wouldn’t it?!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Call of Lovecraft runs until November 21 so don’t miss out.
