Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/26/2018 – Circa Living

Circa Living Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It seems I’d been “burning the midnight oil” where the Fab Free Designer Friday post is concerned. I really wanted to get this post out last night, but it just didn’t happen that way. My apologies for the lateness, however, I think browsing a shop like Circa Living might be a great way to spend a bit of your Saturday!

Circa Living is a shop that specializes in just about all things home related. Not to mention they have been part of Second Life almost since the beginning with 10 plus years of creating. At Circa Living you’ll find everything for inside the home from furniture to decor, and some outdoor furniture and landscaping as well. Not only can you find items for in the home and outside the home, you’ll find some houses too. One of the group gifts at Circa Living is  a skybox. I’m not sure if there is a specific style that could be attributed to Circa Living other than perhaps modern. There is such a wide range of fun and functional items to be had. There is certain to be something for everyone. There’s even a large teleporter at the entrance to Circa Living to help you get around. The same teleporter can be found as you enter the store, in the center of the circulation desk.
Circa Gifts
The Circa Living entrance leads you through a short hallway that also has info about events Circa Living is participating in on the walls. The hall leads you to the circulation desk at Circa Living, where you’ll be greeted by another teleporter, and quite a few group gifts. One such gift is the Halloween themed wreath decor which is FREE for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag! The Circa Living group has a join fee of 500 linden. Once you join the Circa Living  group you’ll have instant access to all the currently available. So whether you’re looking to spruce up your space, or you’re in the market for a new place all together, Circa Living has you covered!

A New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

Hello, fabulous readers! If you’re looking for a place to live with a bit of a retro feel, then I’ve got the spot for you! This beautiful, New York studio apartment can be yours for the low, low price of FREE! 😀

But first, a bit about the furnishings.

Fancy Decor offers a new group gift each month, and ALL of the past gifts are still available! The glass console table you see here is the most recent gift. Other gifts pictured here are the chair, lamp, bell ornament, picture frame, and the clasp boxes under the table. Just join the Fancy Decor in-world group, and these – plus many more – gorgeous home furnishings will be yours!

The artwork you see on the walls are free gifts from The Loft Furniture. They’ve been around for a while, but I thought they added the perfect art deco look to this apartment. You can find the gifts HERE, but in the event that you get tp’d back to the landing point, you’ll need to walk to the west side of the store to find them. Alternatively, you could do an area search for items that are 0L. There are 4 art deco posters available as gifts.

Please keep in mind that The Loft is a large store with many items so it may take a while to load all the textures. Sometimes teleporting out and back in helps speed things up.

Ok, now for the skybox details.

Apple Fall has quietly set this cozy New York Apartment skybox as a free gift. But in order to get it for free, you need to follow these directions:

  • When you arrive at the Apple Fall store landing spot, walk straight ahead towards the mainstore to the teleporter.
  • Click the teleporter and select “New York Apartment” from the blue menu.
  • Hop on the teleporter.
  • When you arrive at the demo skybox, walk around the corner and click the big “Buy Me” tag to purchase for 0L.

I don’t know how long the skybox will be available for free, so if you want it, don’t delay!

New York State of Mind

You don’t like brick? That’s ok!

Click on the back wall (the whitish part you see here) to change the textures. There are 3 different versions available, as well as a “blank” version so you can add your own textures.

Size is about 15 x 12 meters. 10 LI.

This is a cute little apartment with a cool view of the New York skyline, made with the quality you’d expect from Apple Fall. 🙂

Enjoy!

New Year New Everything

New Year New Everything
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a new year, so why not make everything new?!  Recently I posted about new skins and even some lingerie. Today I’m having fun with some furry new friends, a cute new outfit, and a brand new space to call home. Keep reading to find out the how and where you can get each of these FREE or inexpensive items. First, let’s talk about these adorable fur babies!

Puppies!

The adorable little guy on the cushion is not only as cute as he can be, he’s also completely FREE. You can pick this little guy up at Japonica, he is a FREE gift from TLC Animated Animals. Part of what makes him (or her!) so adorable is that he is animated. This little puppy wags his tail and moves his head. There are also little particle feathers that come up out of the cushion where the little rascal tore it. To take him home all you need to do is purchase the box for zero linden from the TLC shop at Japonica.

The second equally adorable puppy in my arms is also at Japonica. There several variations of this furry friend by Who What, each wearing a pretty little kimono. These pups are a gacha item, the one I have is called “Friday” and is one of the common gacha prizes from the Who What gacha at Japonica. This sweet puppy has the hold animation shown (the ground sit is part of Pru’s AO) as well as a typing animation. When you type in local chat the pose will change so that you are holding your puppy and vertically instead of horizontally and cute hearts and butterfly particles are emitted. To get your sweet kimono wearing pup just play the Who What gacha for 48 linden per play.

MOoH!

If you haven’t checked out the more recent Fab Free group gift listing, you should. This sweater and leggings combo is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoh. It’s the kind of outfit that can be perfect for a lazy casual day or be dressed up for a comfortable yet put together look. The outfit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the sweater. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, if you’re not already a member.

Kraftwork

Did you happen to notice the gorgeous textures in the room Pru’s sitting in? This photo is a narrow view of the studio apartment style skybox group gift at Kraftwork. This one room skybox is beautifully textured and comes in a “daylight” and a “moonlight” version. The shades and hues are slightly different depending on which version you use. I chose the daylight version, and the appearance of light through the windows is from the windlight settings I used. I love the added illusion of an exterior treeline through the windows. To get your copy of these pretty little skyboxes just join the Kraftwork group and click the group gift vendor near the landing point. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join.

Atom Bomb Baby

Atomic_001

I almost missed out on telling all you Fabulous readers about the Sn@tch 10th Anniversary Sale & Specials! It ends July 19th, so you still have a couple of days, and you don’t want to miss out! In addition to lots of extra ways to win free clothes, almost everything in the store (this does not include new releases, marketplace, or gift cards) is 50 – 75% off!

A Lucky, Unlucky Dip!

Extra prize winning machines have been set out at Sn@tch for this special week, including an Unlucky Dip… except that it’s lucky! It gives out a prize every single time!

I took a dive and came up with a free Sn@tch Skybox of Evil! This skybox is a Gothic skybox and is full-size and simply amazing. It even included decorating accessories such as a bed, candelabras, rugs, and a plant. The skybox itself was 81 prim, but for such a roomy and well textured skybox, that’s not bad! I took my picture in front of the window of the skybox… which was my favorite part!

New Lucky Letters!

Our wonderful Sn@tch creator has set out new Lucky Letter Board prizes and you can win lots of great prizes for free if your letter comes up! I won the Atom Bomb Baby Tank top for free when my letter came up! It comes in all the standard sizes, but I love that it is a fatpack of colors! You’ll have colors to match all your moods for free!

Matching pants!

Have you forgotten Sn@tch‘s new Freebie and Cheapie area? I had! I took a peak over there and snatched up these free Raji Floral leggings. These are mesh and come in all the standard sizes and for 0L I was able to get them in a fat-pack of colors. They matched my new free tank top too! I’m all set!

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.

Carson is wearing…

Shirt: Orchid  – Marcelo Graffiti Shirt (free group gift / $0L /$1L to join)
Pants: Wilson’s Designs  – FM – Dark blue Jeans  (Love Hunt – $1L)

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)

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!
