Holiday Card

Today is a good day, My FabFree Fam. This is my 500th post here on the Fabulously Free Blog. Can you believe it? I can’t believe it myself. I had never blogged a post in my life when Love and Prudence took a chance on me back in 2014. Since then there have been highs… and lows. But, wow, what a ride! Thank you, FabFree Family, you readers extraordinaire and my Blog Sisters. Thank you, Love for taking a chance on me not just once… but twice. I wish each and every one of you the best Holiday season and the most Fabulous of New Years!

Cheers and hugs and love,
Juli and Gabriel and Baxter, Badger, Luna and Nox.

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Have a Very Merry Christmas

Country Christmas
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend thus far. I know I personally am welcoming the escape of Second Life. hah Plus, there are just so many fun things to share with you! As you know, The Wash is having their seasonal Cart Sale and as always there are tons of big bargains. Today I am pleased to share with you some of the Cart Sale finds by a shop called KK Home. If you’re looking for some Christmas decor with a bit of country flair, you’ll definitely want to stop by the KK Home booth.

Everything aside from the chair Pru is seated in is available for next to nothing at the KK Home Cart Sale booth. The little red wood burner is probably my favorite of the items offered. I think the details are just beautiful. Also available at the KK Home booth are the stack of wood, the pine cone wreath, the nutcracker, and the wooden Christmas tree decoration. Most of the items are just 10 linden each, however the wood burner is 50 linden.

Here are the details, happy decorating!

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Santa Baby and a Convertible Too

A Convertible Too“… Santa baby, a 54 convertible too
Light blue, I’ll wait up for you,

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like a holiday pinup in this cute little (emphasis on little) harness and these fur trimmed boots. Especially sitting atop this extra cool convertible.

Keep reading to find out how to get this cute holiday harness, the festive boots, and the highly detailed convertible without breaking the bank.

They can also be driven, and will accommodate up to 2 avatars.

It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Winter Dreaming
Hi There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend finds you well. I feel like I have been a slacker this holiday season, the decorations are only partly done, and all I seem to want to do is look out the window and daydream. Even so, I do have two festive holiday finds to share with you. The first being the unisex Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Taox Tattoo. The second is part of the Candy Cane Hunt prize at Gumi’s Flower Shop.

The Tattoo – This applier tattoo is a full-body unisex Christmas themed tattoo by Taox. I love all the cute holiday imagery included in this fun tattoo. The Peace on Earth Hunt is running until the end of December, and all the POE Hunt prizes are free. The tattoo gift at Taox comes in several male and female body appliers.
Appliers included: Slink (Male), Slink (Female), Maitreya, Belleza (Male), Belleza (Female), Omega (Male), Omega (Female), Signature, Adam, and a Vista Hand applier.

The Wreath – This cute little Christmas wreath with the gingerbread men is one of several holiday wreaths included in the Candy Cane hunt gift at Gumi’s Flower Shop. You’ll find Gumi’s Flower Shop on the Peppermint Path of the Candy Cane Hunt. All the Candy Cane Hunt prizes are just 2 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!

Sizes Included

  • Classic mesh Sizes XXS-L
