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)

Right Here Waiting

K&A Design (Cart Sale) LDR Justin Trousers FA Red Sneakers MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

“Wait here,” she says, “I’ll just be a few minutes….”

That was an hour ago and it has started to snow. But here I sit, because I was asked to.  I’m wearing a few old (previously blogged) items, because they have become some of my favorites this holiday season, and some new items I hope will become favorites. Let’s start with the old… From The Wash Cart Sale, I’m wearing the K&A Design Winter Red Sweater that I first showed [HERE]. This seems to be one of my go to items in my closet lately. It’s just $10L on the K&A Design cart. I’m also wearing the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I showed [HERE].

“Watch these bags while I check out the store over there…”

OMG! How long is this going to take… I joined the LDR  group for FREE and picked up the Justin Trousers as a FREE Group Gift.  I also joined the Full Addiction group, again for FREE,  and got the Red Sneakers as a FREE gift.

MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

This is for the birds…

Waiting here in the cold and the snow… I’ll most probably get sick before Christmas. At least I have my little owl friend to keep me company. The Xmas Owl Scarf  by MoonAmore+Cureless is a FREE gift under the Christmas tree at The ArcadeThis little guy has his wings out, but there is also a scarf with him perched safely on the scarf. Finally, -sigh-  Here she comes…  No! Don’t go in the pet store…..

T – 2 Days

Snapshot_004

Hey FabFree! As you can see my puppy made it home safe and sound after his walkabout to Serena’s and then his untimely abduction by Carson.  He’s exhausted poor thing, not even enough energy to play with his favourite ball, but I made him pose for the photo so you could see he was returned safely!  I’m sure once he wakes up, he’ll be ready for another adventure.  Who knows where he will wind up this afternoon!

Running Out of Advent Time!

There is only a couple more days to take advantage of all of the free gifts in the Kittycats Advent Calendar and if you haven’t been by, you can head down there and pick up all of the previous days.  This calendar is filled with sometimes multiple gifts each day by different designers across the grid.  Now…  I can’t remember which day I got this awesome gift by Rebel Hope, but I wanted to share the news with you so you know it’s in there … somewhere!  This gift by Rebel Hope includes the dress and boots shown as well as a headband and a hat (not shown).

Dress & Boot Sizes:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

It’s the Truth, I tell you!

My hairstyle today is courtesy of Truth who put their Irena and Irenka hairstyles under the holiday Pompom hats and sent them out to the inworld Truth group.  This is similar to the previous hair gift that Sheidey has been showing off in her posts [HERE], and [HERE], but with a holiday pom pom hat ;).  A full selection of colour huds for hair and texture change for the hat is included.

Also in Truth  group notices right now, you’ll find the Bangs Collection which is a great way to add a little versatility to any of your Truth hair!  I am wearing the Swept Right Narrow bangs with my Irenka hair today and it really changed up the look.  There are several different types of bangs (or fringe as some of you around the world call it) and as like the PomPom Hat gift, there is a full selection of colour huds!  I can’t wait to try it with the other kajillion Truth hairstyles I have been collecting.  It will be like new hair all over again!  There is a fee of 350L to join currently, but it’s worth it!

Winter Decor

Now this bench with my little squirrel friend is another one of the Le Poppycock Animal Friends  poses from the gacha offering at The Liason Collaborative (50L per play), but also… sitting beside the bench you’ll see a very nice winter décor piece by Dixie Dandelion called Pilling Lantern & Gulls w/ Shell that I picked up for 10L at The Wash Cart Sale.  This item is transferrable so that you can even gift it to a friend if you like!

A Cat and a Hat

Shea Designs - Men's Mesh Wither Outfit

No more Seussicals…

There will be no rhymes this time… DOH! Take 2….  In my busy travels, I came across this FREE kitschy Kei’s Kitteh Clock courtesy of Kei Spot (say that three times fast) at the Midwinter Fair. This clock has a certain appeal and can actually tell time. I resized it to be the centerpiece of my wall but you can make it whatever size fits your needs.

Black and Blue and Nothing to Do….

For those who look at my Flickr account, you have probably noticed I sit around in my spacious studio loft and take random photos of myself being bored. On the rare occasion I do venture out, I check out stores for good deals or gifts. I happened to find once such gift at Shea Designs. The FREE group gift is the Men’s Mesh Winter Outfit. The black and blue sweater and jeans outfit looks great with the Shearling Short Boot, the FREE group gift from Gabriel. And to make it even better, both of these groups are FREE to join. Finishing off the look I’m still wearing (but I’ve changed the look)  the Cesar II Hair and Hat by [bade], one of the many FREE group gifts at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

American Psycho

AB Trench Coat

But when He Threatened Your Life with a Switchblade Knife…

You really don’t want to meet this guy as you’re out on a Christmas stroll. He’ll steal your purse, your shopping bags and maybe even your heart. -wink- The latest group gift from American Bazaar is this very detailed Trench Coat. You can get this for FREE by joining the American Bazaar group and picking up the gift. I matched it with the Adrian Headphones Skull Shirt I picked up at Orchid. It can be purchased for just $50L. The Scarf by Meva is one of the many group gifts at Cosmopolitan. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up all the gifts under the tree. In one of those packages at Cosmopolitan, I also found the FREE Trench Knife made by BAMSE. I finished off the look with the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I previously showed HERE.

What a Guy.

Makes You Cry…

And I Did.
