Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st

Under the Cedars

Secret Garden
Happy Pre-Friday, Fabulouses!  Oooooh have I found a gorgeous, sexy gown for you today!  When Ripley and I were wandering the grid, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest free gift from monaLISA.  Quick as a wink, we popped on over to the shop, and scooped up this beauty.  If you’re not a group member already, for just a 70L join fee, you can add the spellbinding Maite gown to your inventory, too.

Gold Trimmed Ebony

With a slit that offers a glimpse of shapely legs, and a daring cut in the bodice, this sleeveless dress sets off your figure beautifully.  Sleek ebony fabric hugs your curves, and drapes to a slightly flared, floor-length hemline.  Softly gleaming gold edging surrounds the border of the skirt, and adds a glamorous touch.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It’s so Close, I Can Almost Taste It

We’re almost to the weekend….yay!  Here’s hoping the rest of your work week passes smoothly.  I know I’ll have a busy Saturday in RL.  Thanksgiving managed to sneak up on me this year.  Sheesh!  Where did November go?  Over the weekend, I plan to make sure I have all the ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving Holiday dinner.  (I know our Canadian friends already celebrated – we’re a little behind them here in the USA).  The pupster put in a special request for a double batch of Ripley Snacks.  My favorite, however, has to be pumpkin pie.  What’s yours?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Red and Green Season

Red and Green Season

Ready or Not…

And I’m not.

In my neck of the woods, red and green season actually started back in September. I’ve been in serious denial about it, but unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore.

Seems like we just put away the holiday decorations a few weeks ago, and now it’s time to get them back out again. 😛

It’s Easy Being Green…

In this sparkly new gift from I. M. Collection!

Shortly after I shared their latest group gift, I. M. Collection put out a lovely new gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group.

The Eirwen Sweater Dress comes in sizes for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. Also included for Maitreya bodies is an applier for these pretty, jeweled tights. 12 different color textures are included so you can wear them with different outfits all winter long.

Keeping it Short

I do love a short ‘do, and this one is no exception.

When I saw the amazing HairOLogy anniversary gifts that Pru picked up (see them HERE and HERE), I decided to head over and grab them for myself!

Delrio, the HairOLogy gift from Tukinowaguma, comes in a full fatpack of colors and would likely look nice on the fellas as well as the ladies. I love the way the bangs fall carelessly over one eye. 😉

Be sure to stop by HairOLogy before November 30th to see what’s new and pick up all the pretty gifts (no group needed)!

Sometimes I Wear Hydrangeas

Sissboom60LHydrangea
I know, I know… I have come to you once today already with news, but I had a pretty easy day and I was excited to show you some time sensitive sale items I picked up to create the pretty outfit that I put together in my photo.

Savings at Siss Boom

I stopped in at Siss Boom to check out the new group gift and while I was grabbing that I eyed up the sales items on the wall.  I found that the Sometimes Hydrangea Dress was on sale for just 60L.  It includes the belted hydrangea printed dress and omega applier gold shirt as well as the little bit of flexi stuff at the bottom which you can choose to wear or not.  Normally I skip the flexi things, but I thought it was cute, so I put it on this time.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Top –  Omega Applier & System Layer

It’s 25L Tuesday At Belle Epoque

I then headed over to Belle Epoque where I knew the Parisian Painter Gacha Set was just 25L per play for 25L Tuesday!  I played a few times and came up with the Cream Boots and Bag that I was after.  They are both common pieces, so they came up quickly!  The bag is filled with all kinds of painting supplies and is just so cute to tote around and pretend I have an ounce of painting ability!  The whole set is really sweet, so check it out!

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology.

It’s Called Hairology, Chantal

7DS Chantal Close

Chantal

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here, I have a lot to share with you! So rather than ease into the post, I’ll just get right to the good stuff starting with this absolutely beautiful group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins. I love the look of this face on the Catwa Sofia head. Her name is Chantal and she’s the November group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The beauty marks really make the skin for me. This generous gift includes Omega body/head appliers in each of the 7 skin tones. There is also a male skin group gift available. The 7 Deadly Skins group is 225 linden to join at this time, and there are monthly group gifts.
Hairology Gifts

Hairology 2nd Anniversary Gifts

Yep, it’s anniversary time for Hairology, which of course means FREE hair. It’s hard to believe that Hairology is already 2 years old. I can still clearly recall when it was still being planned and put together. In celebration most of the Hairology participating designers have put out some pretty awesome FREE gifts. I know I picked up one from just about every booth and it’s quite possible I missed one or two. Rather than show each and every one, I decided to pick out four personal favorites. These gifts are completely FREE, no group needed, just click the Anniversary cake at each booth and pay zero linden.

  • First, the Pink Hustler gift at Hairology is the cute little knit choker Pru is wearing in each of the photos. This FREE gift comes with a color change hud allows you to change the color of the knit part of the collar, the laces, and the metal bits. Most of the colors are in the realm of pastel, but there are some bold colors as well.
  • Next, the hair pictured in the left photo is the FREE Hairology gift from RunAway. This gorgeous long hairstyle comes with a color hud that includes 9 edgy dip dyed/fade hair color options. There are 3 hair sizes for this style as well, fitted, boobs, and regular.
  • The hairstyle pictured in the top photo and the center of the second photo is the Hairology gift from Analog Dog. I love these extra long wavy braids. With this FREE gift you’ll get the Rampion hair style with 8 color huds. Each hud has several color options. Also included is a set of classic system layer hair bases, and an optional flexi add-on for the wavy ends of the braids.
  • Finally, the hair shown on the right in the above photo is the FREE gift at Hairology from Damselfly. Another long wavy style, this one is more tousled and full. This pretty hairstyle comes with a “Mixed and Faded” color hud that includes 40 (yes 40!) color options, most of which are a variation of blond, brunette, black, or red. The hair also comes in 2 sizes.

Glitter

Lastly, the cute little bodysuit Pru has on is a FREE gift from Glitter exclusively for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This kitty faced pink bodysuit with an applier hud, and classic system layers. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. All you need to do to get your copy of this cute FREE gift is head over to Glitter, make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendor.

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!

One of the things I love most about fall is pumpkin spice everything. Especially the coffee. 😀

Sevyn East set out this adorable outfit for The Jerky Turkey Hunt. For just 1L, you can get the cute sweater with a flirty skirt, the scarf, and a pumpkin spice latte-to-go!

The Pumpkin Spice Sweater comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Standard with an alpha layer

Unlike the skirt, the scarf is not attached, so you can remove it for a different look.

A texture-change HUD is included with 4 designs for the sweater, and 4 gingham patterns for the skirt and scarf.

TJTH7 SEVYN EAST

The pumpkin spice latte comes in a venti! 😎

The Jerky Turkey Hunt runs through November 30th. Just find the orange feather and buy it for 1L to grab your gifts.

While you’re at it, take a look at TJTH gifts these Fab Free bloggers have shared:

Happy hunting!

Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown

Sullen Girl
Hello There Fab Free’rs! You may or may not know that the November round of Gacha Garden is in full swing, and there are lots of  FREE gifts to be had. I went through a few days ago and picked up most of them, and did a little gacha-ing while I was there. While playing around with some of the gachas and the fantastic FREEbies from my Gacha Garden adventure, I came up with this look. I think she’s pretty in a moody sort of way. All the gifts at Gacha Garden are FREE. You will need to join the Gimme Gacha group, which is FREE to join, and wear the group tag. Then just click the gift boxes next to each vendor and your gift will be delivered.

Chocolate Atelier

While at the Gacha Garden, I picked up the FREE gift and played the gacha machine from Chocolate Atelier. The pretty lingerie is just 45 lindens per play, I got lucky and scored the Rare black version after just a few tries. The whimsical twig crown is the FREE gift from Chocolate Atelier. The lingerie comes in several appliers as well as classic system layers. The lingerie and crown pair beautifully together.

Lingerie Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, TMP

Ayashi

The long beautiful wavy pastel hair Pru has is the FREE gift at Gacha Garden from Ayashi. This lovely long hairstyle comes with a pastel color pack with several pretty pastel options. The style also includes a crown which is not shown. The hair also comes in a regular fit and one for those of us with a slightly larger chest.

LIVIA

Yet another fabulous FREE gift at Gacha Garden is this gorgeous nude lip color from LIVIA. This single color lip gloss comes in several appliers and a Classic System layer for non mesh avatars. Don’t forget, you’ll need to join the FREE Gimme Gacha group and wear that group tag to get this and all the other FREE gifts at Gacha Garden.

Get Moving!

BelleEGGThey say “Home is where the heart is”, but which one of these boxes did I pack it in??

Hey there Fabulouses! One of the many cool things about Second Life is that you can pick up your entire home at the drop of a hat and go from a beach bungalow to a mountain chalet or New York studio, or where ever your heart desires…  Even a tree house or a cave if you like!  You don’t even have to change locations if you don’t want to, you can just pick it all up, and put something new down.  If only it was that easy in real life!

Enough Babbling Love, What ARE You Wearing?

My casual fall outfit today was put together with a couple of new goodies I came across this week – which was perfect timing, because they look great together!

You can pick up the LFE Leonie Sweater I am wearing today for just 10L in several mesh body sizes on the marketplace, and in fact…  if you do a little browsing through their marketplace listings, you’ll find that you can pick up the same sweater in several prints for just 10L each.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

What goes better with a cozy sweater than some fuzzy warm boots?

Not much, and you can find the Mina Boots as a free group gift at Belle Epoque with a 10L join fee.  These boots will fit any kind of mesh avatar using their alpha huds and may work with the system body too if you happen to have the right alpha layer already in your inventory (alpha layer not incuded).  You will not only find the gorgeous brown colour I am wearing, but all of the following colours in your gift folder!

Boot Colours:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Coffee
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Wine
