You Would Still Have My Heart

You Would Still Have My HeartI’d been pondering if it was too early to do a Valentine’s Day post. After all, Valentine’s Day is only a couple of weeks away. Then, the decision was made for me when I saw a group notice for the Petite Mort and Oubliette Valentines Hunt!

One Last Hunt

It’s really the perfect way to spend a chilly January day, hunting the stunningly beautiful Witchwood sim for Valentine’s goodies. And we’d better enjoy it while we can, because this will be the last hunt on the Witchwood sim as it is now. But don’t fret, Melora Frost (owner/creator of Witchwood and both stores) announced in the group chat that she will be redecorating the sim and relaunching both stores. She says that she plans to put the two stores next to each other and dedicate half of the sim to themed hunts. It’s a little bittersweet because the sim is so lovely as it is and I’ve definitely taken my share of photos there over the years, but also exciting to see what Melora will come up with next!

Hearts and Roses

Back to the current hunt – this time you’re looking for 18 conversation hearts scattered all over the sim. They’re not terribly hard to find, but if you have trouble just look for the Hunt Pack Info & Clues at the landing point. It includes pictures of the prizes and the hearts you’re looking for, as well as some tips and even a list of hints for the location of each one. Each prize costs 10L or 20L. I’m wearing two:

  • The denim jacket is 20L and acid washed to perfection
  • The cute “love tee” I’m wearing under it is only 10L

Both items are sized for Maitreya, Legacy, and Reborn.

In addition to the hunt, both stores are currently 50% off. It all officially started today and end on February 14th.

Chilly Day

Chilly Day

As I was looking around the grid for deals for the guys I found Gabriel, a men’s fashion staple in Second Life.  Not only have they been around since 2009, their quality is amazing.  I also discovered that this designer is very generous by providing a small store of free items that anybody would be proud to wear.

Most of the freebies are clothes that are not rigged for a specific mesh body however unless you have a very large muscular shape you shouldn’t have trouble wearing them.

Make sure you check out the main store as they also have a 1L section with even more great fashions and many 50% off items.

Winter Wishes

Winter Wishes

I’ve often talked about how people on television seem to dress for winter in a way that is completely the antithesis of anything that you would actually wear in a cold clime.  Being Canadian, I know that these dreams of looking stylish when the mercury dips below zero are really just dreams.  Unless I’m in the mood for some very uncomfortable frostbite in questionable locations.  So, when I’m inworld, I dress like the magical winter being that I can only ever aspire to be.  Quick!  To the apres-ski!

Faux Fur

This very cozy and chic vest is perfect for layering when things get cold out.  I love that it looks all big and toasty without adding too much bulk to my frame.  To get yours, head on over to COCO, join their free group and get this vest which is the latest in a long string of amazing gifts.  There are so many lovely things to pick up here, you can pretty much get a whole wardrobe of sensible staples for completely free.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

But Boots

Boots are a thing one cannot go without in chilly climes.  I generally am in boots from November through til April, so I cannot overstate the importance.  Yes, I said April.  Anywhos, this great pair of sorta celestial themed stomper boots (in three different colours) are the latest gift from Mosquito’s Way.  You all know I love this store with an undying passion.  There are frequent gifts, and the quality is just amazing.  The group is currently 150L to join, but you’ll get a whole wall of group gifts, plus their lucky chair prizes too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy

One sweet day off

Sweet Day Off

Hello and happy Thursday, FabFam. And why you may ask is a plain ol’ Thursday worth celebrating? I’m glad you asked. 🙂  Because, it’s a good day with nothing to do. After the chaos of the hoidays, as fun as they are, it’s good to take a day off to relax. As much as I love dressing up, sometimes the day calls for something a bit more comfy!

Liiiike this cozy casual hoodie from Sweet Willows! Which you can get for free. Doesn’t it look like your favorite fleecey ‘day off’ top? The build is so good and the textures are awesome. I picked this gray camo pattern for the sleeves but you might like one of the other 16 textures from the included HUD.

All you need to do is wear your Fabulously Free Group Tag, which is free to join, and pop over to Sweet Willows and slap that board. While you’re there, take a look around for all kinds of deals. While wearing your group tag, you can get 50% off anything else at Sweet Willows.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya

Ready for Spring

Ready for Spring

After dealing with freezing rain and ice coated streets just before Christmas and now constant rain, I am so ready for Spring.  March is just around the corner right?

I found a cute sweater that is giving off Spring vibes with the off shoulder style from Mooh, it’s their latest group gift.  I picked up the the skirt and top as well to put together this cute outfit.  I think getting three pieces for the 100L required to join the group is worth it, especially after joining any future groups gifts are free!!

Give Me The Shivers

Give Me The ShiversCollectively, I’d say that us FabFree girls have a lot of really great qualities. One place where we really struggle though? Bundling up and dressing for the weather. And here is a prime example. Really I think that my facial expression says it all. The things that we do in the name of freebies!

Oh Christmas Tree

There is an Advent Calendar at Cosmopolitan, in the form of a lovely Christmas tree just inside the entrance. It claims to be an advent calendar, but when I was there the day after it started it was already loaded with free presents. It runs from December 15th through 25th so I’ll definitely be checking back to see what else is added each day. To get the free gifts you need to join the free Cosmopolitan group and then click on the ornaments on the tree to get the gifts. They are from all different designers and range from clothes to accessories to decor. Here’s some of what I snagged on my visit:

  • Free mittens by amias with three colors to choose from and in sizes for Legacy and Maitreya
  • Free hair by no.match, including the scarf – there’s a HUD of “essential” hair colors plus two more HUDS of colors for the scrunchy and scarf
  • Free top by FLIRT, also in a fatpack of colors and sizes for Cinnamon, Kupra, Kupra Kups, Legacy, Maitreya, Perky, and Reborn
  • Free lipstick applier by Lempika, featuring 15 nice colors

The Cosmopolitan Event runs till December 25th and you’ll be able to get the free gifts the whole time, they don’t go away like most advent calendars once the day is done. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to see if a nice jacket or coat has been added.

Sleigh Ride

Sleigh Ride

Well, I hear those sleigh bells jingling, and possibly ring tingle tingling too (Thank you, the Ronettes).  It’s lovely weather for a… um… pick up truck ride together with you?  Why not!

The Arcade

I love The Arcade, and I know I say it every time a new round comes around.   I loved me some gachas, so the system the Arcade has been using now that gachas are defunct is a good replacement for that little thrill of excitement I used to get when I played.  Plus, you must admit it is a bit more budget-conscious.  You get to see which prize is next to come out of the machine, and it still comes with a lovely price tag.  I played the Ricielli machine (you can learn all about how to play HERE) for just 75L per play, and I ended up with the rare jacket and this lovely cream coloured dress to go with.  Colour me pleased.  The Arcade is running until December 31st.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Legacy
  • Reborn

Tree Topper

Magika released a new hairstyle yesterday, and to go with it, this really cute bow complete with candy cane.  The bow is completely free, just join the free Magika group and click on the vendor!  It will surely look cute on all kinds of hairstyles, so do give it a go.  Not sure how long this one will be around, so head on over.

Oh, now I’ve got that song in my head!

Happy Friday!  Time to put on something to turn heads and head out into the wild and wacky world of Second Life!

Feel the Byrne

In all the Black Friday furore, don’t forget that the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt is still rolling on for a few more days!  I picked up this extremely distinctive coat at Byrne for just 5L and a bit of searching for the little rainbows hidden in the shop.  There are also some male gifts at this store, so let your gentleman friends know.  You’ve got until the 30th to pick these up!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Check out all the prizes and hints right HERE.

I’ll be back a bit later tonight with another post, since there’s so much going on!
