Burning Bridges

Snapshot_001Hey Fabulouses!   Before I head off for the night, I wanted to pop on quick and share a couple of really nice group gifts :).

May the bridges I burn light the way

Stories & Co. by Flowey has a new group gift for you that speaks a perfect message for the new year!  January is a perfect time for letting go of things that no longer make you happy, and opening yourself up to new things that might.  This “Burn January” version of the Lisbeth Tee comes in the following sizes as a free group gift with a 100L join fee.

  • Maitreya & Maitreya Flat
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The whole Truth about my hair…

Truth Hawks has been amazingly generous to his VIPs (currently 350L to join).  While you can still pick up four previously offered group gifts at the mainstore with your Truth group tag activated, you can also pick up the new group gift for January that includes the Gaea pixie cut hairstyle shown above and the Kati bob as shown below in a full fatpack of colours!

A Day in Gray

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulouses!  If you happen to have a space 60L kicking around, I know just the place to spend it!

Don’t forget your purse…

You will need a little bit of cash for today’s find (60L to be exact), but to be fair…  Sometimes group fees cost more than this little dress does!  [Satus Inc.] has just released their new Anya Collar Mini Dress in four beautiful colours, and for a limited time, they are just 60L per colour.  I am wearing the gray today, but you will also find black, blue and pink.  I think the sheer midriff, slit skirt and studded collar add so much sexy to what would normally be a very basic design.  Another feature that I can appreciate is the realistic wrinkled texturing.

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • TMP

Nefarious Plans

ZigZag 1

Even villains have day jobs.

Neckwarmer Man blew my cover… again. So the earmuffs are gone. But thankfully KoKoLoRes Hair has out a new group gift for January, which means I have a new hairdo. Just call me “Spike.” That old moniker just wasn’t me. And I think I like the name Dillon too… after the hair… as my other Alias. Got to have a lot of aliases when your in the business of crime. Crime and coffee that is. And I’ll be serving up your coffee at the local coffee and tea bar here at Tanya’s.

The shirt off the rack.

They say you have to blend in. Look normal. Especially if you’re running the day shift at a coffee bar when Neckwarmer man is hot on your trail. So I stopped by MOoh! and picked up the latest FabFree Gift. I didn’t even have to steal it, as it was already FREE. Can you believe that? They just leave this stuff lying around. It even came in four colors, fitmesh, and sizes for Maitreya and Slink bodies.

On the lookout…

I know that guy will never give up… wait… did that customer just take an extra creamer for his coffee? See! There are worse villains than me! At least I serve the coffee hot while I plot my nefarious plans. Okay, semi-hot. I don’t want the customers getting spoiled.

Look to the Future

Look to the FutureWell Hello Fab Free! This will be my last post for the year 2016. I can’t really say 2016 was a bad year any more than I can say it was a good one. There were amazing moments in this year and some heartbreaking ones as well. That said, I’m looking forward to 2017. The future appears bright and promising, I hope it remains that way. My sincere wish is that 2017 holds only joyous moments filled with love, laughter, and adventure for each and every one of you. Mush and sentiment aside, I do have some lovely group gifts to share with you. The first is a fatpack hairstyle from Pr!tty, the second a jewelry set from Bella Moda. Let’s get to it!

Pr!tty Group Gift Avery

The side-swept hairstyle Pru is wearing is a recent group gift from Pr!tty. To get this FREE gift simply join the Pr!tty group (it’s FREE to join) and check the past notices. There was a notice on December 25th that included a full fatpack of the Avery hair. In the package you’ll get the hair in two variations (one has heavier roots than the other) and all the matching color change huds. Additionally there is an adorable flower headband that I chose not to show. One thing I would like to note is that this hairstyle does have a little wisp that comes across the cheek. If you look close you can see where it cuts into Pru’s cheek just a tad. This doesn’t bother me really, sometimes it isn’t cut into the cheek at all. This will vary depending on your personal shape and or what mesh head you wear, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise I think this is a really lovely FREE hairstyle from Pr!tty.

Bella Moda Group Gift Martini Jewelry Set

I love the fun playfulness of this martini themed jewelry set by Bella Moda. This mesh jewelry set is a FREE group gift at Bella Moda. The Bella Moda group does cost 1 linden to join however. Also, the way the gift vendor works, you will be required to pay the vendor 1 linden then be instantly reimbursed. The set includes the necklace and matching earrings, all of which have resize scripts. Now all Pru needs is a cute dress and a handsome stranger to kiss and she’ll be ready for a New Years bash!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Dragon Lady

The Cart Wash is still going on!

The Winter Cart Wash Sale is still going strong if you looking for sales now that the Christmas rush is over and you need a New Year’s outfit. How about my dragon inspired look? You can put this together for just 20L total!

I started at the Roped Passion’s Cart where I picked up the Leather Alohi Outfit in Pink for just 10L (there are several other luscious leather colors to choose from). It comes in several sizes to fit your mesh body needs.

Sizes:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Venus, & Isis

Top it off with hair.

I picked up my outstanding “do” from Bizarre Hair. This “Magic Dragon” hairstyle includes a hud for a full fatpack of colors. I used my Catwa hairbase to match the hair but it included standard hairbases as well. You get everything in the package for just 10L. And there were plenty of other unique hairstyles at this Cart that you might be interested in.

The Not So Magical Blanket of Snow

Snapshot_005
Hello FabFree… Do you see the look of disdain on my face?  I am now past the “ooo look at the blanket of magical snow, it’s so white and clean” phase, and have moved onto “Grrrrrr rr rrrrr, again!?!”.  It’s so dark in the morning still and that walk needs to be shovelled!  You know that snow spray on the Frosty Returns cartoon?  If it really existed, I may invest!  Maybe someone will come up with a “Snow Roomba”!  Anyways, enough of my complaining…  Maybe Carson will come shovel for me? 😀

I do have good news to share and that should brighten my day, and hopefully yours too!

Sn@tch a Freebie

The eight lucky boards at Sn@tch are free for everyone to use, and have been recently updated with new prizes.  If your lucky letter comes up you might just win the Sacraficial Lamb set that you see me wearing today.  It includes the printed black pants and star top in system layers and Omega.  Also included is a texture change HUD for the top with several different colours.  I have added on a jacket and boots from my inventory, however if you’d like to wear them alone, cuffs for the sleeves of the shirt and pants are included.

If you happen to be snowed in too…

Snap a picture of it and enter our Snowed In Photo Challenge that ends in just a few days.  Be sure to double check the rules before entering and good luck!

An Apologetic Spot

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulous Readers!  I have finally come up with a name for my mischievous little pup.  I have decided to call him Spot…  and it’s not because he is covered in spots…  It’s because he can’t sit in one for very long.  I’m allowing him to suck up to me now for the shoes he chewed up last night.  I’ll be TPing to redelivery boards all day! (If only it were that easy in RL!).  Thankfully I had picked up a new pair last night that were still in the box that he couldn’t get into!

The shoes that were safe…

Pure Poison is hosting a huge 70% off sale that runs until January 1st, 2017 and also has placed out a new free group gift!  After you activate your Pure Poison group tag which is free to join, you can pick up the Miss Klaus Pumps in black with white socks.  If you want these playful pumps in more colours, you can purchase the 14 colour HUD system for just 99L!  I think these would be cute year round with the right outfit!

Pure Poison - Miss Klaus Pumps AD- Group GIFT and Christmas SALE -70% OFF

The hair I am going to pull out if Spot eats one more pair of my shoes…

I really hope it doesn’t get to that point, because I quite like the Kelly hairstyle that I snagged as a free group gift at Entwined in a full fatpack of colours.  There are several group gifts on the wall at the entrance – some of which have been blogged on FabFree before [HERE] and [HERE].  This group is also free to join, so it doesn’t hurt a bit to pick them up and see if they suit you.

Collect those coupons…

My outfit today is by Addams and is a brand new release – that I purchased with a discount!  I am wearing the turtleneck, Pleated Skirt and Cardigan from her new Mesh Hipster line.  Normally on The FabFree Blog, we show under 75L finds, but I wanted to share this little bit of Addams news because it’s a sweet deal…  and kinda fun!

Basically how it works is, you TP to the Addams shop, activate your free inworld group tag and click the gift boxes by the entrance.  By doing this you will receive a folder filled with five random discount coupons (between 5% – 50%) that you can use on purchases in the store.  You can collect a folder of coupons every day until December 30th (up to 5 visits) and use these coupons until January 31st!

While you are there make sure you check out the wall of group gifts behind the Christmas Tree too!

The Morning After…

snapshot3_001f

But First… Coffee

I love the holidays… but sometimes what I love most is when they’re over! This morning, I was so tired that I couldn’t handle the thought of getting dressed until I had consumed an entire pot of coffee.

And even then, I still didn’t have the energy for pants.

A Poor Attempt at Getting Dressed

So basically, all I managed to put on today was this comfy sweater from WICKED, which you can pick up for free until December 31st as part of the EnMESHed Into Christmas (EIC) Hunt. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L), as well as one for FITMESH. You’ll be looking for a little Santa hat.

Speaking of Santa hats, Christmas may be over, but you can still pick up this cute hair and hat from *ARGRACE* until December 31st. It comes with a fatpack of colors, and is set out as a free group gift (although I was able to get the gift without joining the free group… shhh). There is also a version for men, which Carson has modeled several times, most recently here.

YAWN… that’s enough work for today. I think it’s time for a nap.

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride Together With You

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride
Happy Holidays, Fabulouses!  After a day of shopping at the Cart Wash sale, Ripley and I celebrated the arrival of winter with a sleigh ride at Pandora Resort.  The snowy landscape reminded me of the white Christmases I enjoyed when I was growing up.  Ripley had a blast trying to retrieve snowballs that I tossed his way….and he kept losing them in the snowbank!

Chic Sweater Set

My golden-hued sweater from Classy Chics was one of my Cart Wash discoveries.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a great place to pick up some budget-friendly goodies for yourself.  The sale runs until January 4th, so you still have time to scoop up some finds… all for only 10L each! Featuring a bright, argyle pattern in a short, cropped jacket style, this long-sleeved knitted top coordinates with the undershirt beautifully.  The texture on the white top, and its cute bow are simply adorable!  If gold is not your color, the set also includes more seasonal red and green options.  The tops are all Maitreya appliers, and worked beautifully with my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  These white capris, also a Maitreya applier, are part of the Classy Chic package from the Cart Wash.  For only 10L, you get a complete outfit!  Happy dance time!
Angel Earrings

Silver and Gold

‘Tis the season for silver and gold, and Luminesse has you covered with these exquisite angel Christabelle Yvelle earrings for only 10L at the Cart Wash sale.  With ruby centers, golden accents, crystal gems, and silvery wings, these delicate baubles reflect the spirit of the season.  I just love a pair of dangling earrings, don’t you?

Sweets for Santa

Ripley and I are off to finish baking cookies to set out for Santa tonight.  After the “Cookie Incident,” in which a certain canine, who shall remain nameless, decided to sample from the Big Guy’s platter, we have some catching up to do.  I hope you enjoy a relaxing evening, and would like to wish Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate.  Until next time, dear readers, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley, the Cookie Inspector)
