These Boots Are Made For… Kittens

Puppies & Kitties

Uninvited Guests

Unlike at Edi’s place, I think it may literally be raining cats and dogs at my house!

I stumbled down the stairs this morning to make coffee, only to find Finnoula staring out the front door at the strangest sight. My neighbor’s Corgi puppies had gotten loose (again) and were sitting on my porch curiously watching two kittens slumbering away in my new boots. It was all very sweet and surreal… until Finn’s protective nature got the better of her and she started to bark, setting off a chain reaction of puppy yapping, scared-kitty screeching, fur flying… what a way to start the morning! ūüėĮ

Cuteness Overload

JIAN makes some of the cutest animals on the grid, and I was delighted to receive these sweet kitten-booties as the latest group gift. Two versions are included in the box: one for wearing, and this adorbs decor version for rezzing (only 2 LI).¬†The wearable version has a wide-awake kitty on each boot, and not only do they ride along, but they even move and meow (which you can turn off, once you’ve had enough of that)! Both versions have a texture-change menu¬†so you can choose from 3 boot colors, 9 kitty colors, and resize to your liking.

As with all JIAN products, these kitty boots are amazingly well detailed. Best part? The group is FREE to join¬†so you can pick up the kitty boots as well as¬†several other group gifts that are still available. ūüôā

3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!¬† It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!¬† Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.¬† I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.¬† Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.¬† You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous ūüėČ The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Bathroom Set ‚Äst Mystique – Bathroom Sink Bura in Creme – (25L for 25L Tuesday) – hurry, it’s still sitting out!

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! ūüėõ

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet,¬†and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from¬†Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar…¬†although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. ūüôā

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¬†d√©cor 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!

My Holiday Happy Place

Snapshot_001Hey¬† FabFree!¬† Are you ready for Christmas?¬†¬†Unlike Carson who is running around trying to do last minute Christmas shopping as he mentioned [HERE], ¬†I ordered most of the things on my list¬†online this year to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping centers in December,¬†but… now I am stalking tracking numbers in hopes they all arrive on time!¬† I suppose ordering online does have it’s pros (being able to pick things up in the comfort of your own home), but also it’s cons (waiting for them to arrive!!).

My 80L Room

Fortunately I’m all cozy¬†and comfortable in the sitting room¬†that I¬†put together with several 10L finds at The¬†Wash Cart Sale while I wait.¬† My puppy is off frolicking in the snow somewhere (Serena, is he at your place again?!), but as you can see my kittycat is keeping me company just fine. ¬†This whole scene is put together with just 80L.¬† I will list the items in my photo¬†with direct TPs for easy shopping:

What I’m wearing:

You’ll have to forgive me, I know my posts have been a little longer than usual lately and that’s because I am trying to stuff so much in them – but there is just so much to talk about this month!¬† I also want to share with you the details of my outfit because I have some free and affordable finds ON too!

New Freebies @ Blueberry

Right around the corner at the entrance of Blueberry on the gifts wall, you will find that there is a new holiday gift priced at 0L.¬† Inside the gift is the pretty¬†Mini Sweater¬†I have on today (includes a ton of printed and solid textures) as well as the fun Unisex Antlers (also can be changed with the texture change HUD).¬† You don’t need to be in the group to pick this fab gift up, but… you can if you want to!

Sizes included:

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

Snuggling In My Boots

I picked up these snuggly Beth Boots fitted with socks at Aleutia’s offerings at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The best part about these boots is that they come with a texture change hud, so you can match them up with whatever you are wearing in a click!

Whew.. ok, onto my next project!¬† Enjoy your day ūüôā

My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

skater8_001f

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! ūüėõ

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free¬†group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro¬†for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. ūüôā

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the¬†free¬†group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. ūüėÄ

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!
