Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

You know the snow is piled high when you have to ride a deer to get around!

Truth be told, I’ve been having so much fun riding around on this sweet, obliging stag that I haven’t wanted to stop. Today, we explored the beautiful forests of IASWAS – Groenland Kangamiut. The sim is full of lovely mountain trails perfect for skiing or sledding… we even saw a few people riding bicycles!

Oh, and I’m keeping him. I named him Fergus. 🙂

What Fun it is to Ride

I’m staying warm on the trail in this cozy, festive coat, which is the latest gift from Rir Life Designs for members of the TeleportHub in-world group.

The White Knitted Coat comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The Red Fur Collar comes in one size and cannot be resized; however, you can move it around to reposition if needed.

Make Me Blush

The weather outside is frightful… and my cheeks are sporting a delightful blush thanks to a free gift I picked up at Izzie’s.

The Winter Blush Gift comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Slink, and Omega mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars.

No need to join a group. Just head over to the Izzie’s mainstore and click to buy for 0L.

P.S. There are a few more gifts under the tree so be sure you check them all out before you leave. 😀

Good Golly Miss Mollie

Hello Winter
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like this has been the longest week of all the long weeks! lol It’s probably just me though. Thankfully I always have Fab Free to “come home” to. I also get the best kind of retail therapy, free! One of the things I love about this time of year in Second Life is the abundance of gifts, and of course my ability to share them with you.

Besom

I love this cute casual hairstyle from Besom.  It’s that style you wear when you are too lazy to get out of your comfy sweats but you still wanna look cute. ha! It’s also their most recent FREE group gift. This awesome gift is a fatpack, which of course means you get all the currently available color packs Besom offers. To get your copy of this hairstyle gift, head over to Besom and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

FaMeshed

I know I have talked about how laggy I am these days, well I decided to cross my fingers and hope my little laptop would bravely allow me to navigate the current round of FaMeshed.  By the grace of the technology gods it worked, and thankfully I didn’t have to navigate far. There are lots of FREE holiday gifts at FaMeshed stacked up under the Christmas tree very near the landing point. One of the gifts I picked up is this super cute cropped hoodie by Vinyl. I couldn’t say a bad thing about this top if I wanted to. Everything about it is well made, and I love the wording on the front. The top reads ” Hello Winter” in a simple font with a little bit of gold embellishment. You will need to wear the FaMeshed group tag to get this FREE gift and the many others. The FaMeshed group is FREE to join at this time.

Ski Bunny

Ski Bunny

Well, the snow has finally found me in RL, and I’m not entirely complaining at the moment.  Maybe it’s the fact that it just looks so pretty as it falls from the sky, creating that Marshmallow World we’re all dreaming of.  I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune come January when the cars turn the white snow grey, and slush is pervasive.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts, so it’s time to hit the virtual slopes!

Chubby Bunny

This adorable bunny sweater by Me Sew Sexy will keep me warm on the slopes, and it’s a sweet gift at The Chapter Four event.  Pay a measly 10L to join the group, and pick up piles of gifts!  I literally spent hours unpacking, so the 10L fee is totally worth it.  This cozy sweater comes in two versions:  one with the hood up and one with the hood down, which you can see me wearing in the photo.  I guess it brings new meaning to the term snow bunny!  This gift comes in fitmesh to fit most avatars (Psst – the hood has bunny ears on it!  Eeek – so cute!).

Stock up!

I love wearing cute stockings in the winter, and these ones by Aim Glory are no exception!  How adorable are they?  I love the little reindeer faces!  These stockings are another gift at The Chapter Four and they come with appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Check Meowt!

Pr!tty has been consistently gifting out really amazing hair at events, and I’m very excited to add this one to my collection.  I pretty much love anything which is vaguely cat-like, and so these little lighted ears fit perfectly into my vast horde of cat things!  I especially love the fact that there are several different colour ears in the pack, named such things as “Mistletoe” and “Wrapping Paper” .  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and is very versatile.  Love it!

One More Thing…

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my fave gifts from The Chapter Four, but I had to add in this lipstick applier from Elise.  I love the sparkly look!   There are several different colour options, so you can play in the paint all day long.  In the box, you’ll find appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and TMP as well as System Layers.

I think I hear someone in the background calling me to come skiing.  I’m off to hide in the chalet!  Toodles!

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Settled In For A Long Winters Nap

POErOrOIt’s a good thing I ate my wheaties this morning…

Because I had to wrestle him for the TV remote tonight.  I was in the mood to settle in the best spot on the sofa and watch some animated Christmas specials.  They are all over the guide listing this month and I’m happy about that :).  The only problem is that I can’t make up my mind which one to watch, because I love so many of them and there are only three weeks left to watch them all.

Love’s Ultimate Favourite Top 5 Animated Christmas Specials (mostly in no particular order):

  1. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
  3. Frosty The Snowman
  4. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
  5. Santa Clause Is Comin To Town

Of course this list is just the cartoons…  How will I ever find time to fit in all of the Christmas themed movies too?  *Sinks into the sofa with a smile*.  He might as well kiss Supergirl goodbye because he won’t see this remote until January!  What are your favourites?

Cozy Apparel

You can find this super cute long cardigan with top at @rOrO FREE for the Peace on Earth Hunt!  I paired it up with  some comfy flared jeans by Aphorism available now as a new release at this round of FaMESHed and braided my hair all cute on a budget thanks to Wasabi Pills at The Arcade!  I was lucky enough to get the blonde pack on my first pull of 75L.  That sure doesn’t happen often.

Sizes Included:

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

For Just A Few Minutes, It Was Silent

POE2

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Good morning Fabulously Free in SL Readers!  I was supposed to go out last night, but the snow began to fall late afternoon and the roads were an icy mess so I thought it best to stay back at home.  It’s a good thing I did, because if I had gone out I would have missed out on the surreal experience the snow left when it silenced everything around me.  Time stood still for just a few moments. The streets were quiet, the wind was still and the snow was pure white and sparkling.  The neighbors across the street had just hung their decorations and Christmas lights which were glowing through the snow, and when I looked over there it was a perfect holiday scene as if they had sent out my Christmas card early.

Like my fur coat?

Don’t worry – no animals were harmed in the making of this pixel fashion piece!  Until the end of the month, you can pick it up as a free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Stormcrow Designs!

Sizes Included:

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

Weekend Shuffle

12-03-2017

Doggie’s Day Out…

I’m out the door, off to run a few quick errands and pick up the pup from her day at the doggie spa. I swear her fur grows three times faster than my hair. I grabbed my new jacket to wear out and about. I found the FREE Men’s Woolen Coat at Get Jiggy! as part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. I swear this hunt just keeps getting better with each stop.  This stylish jacket (that I see me wearing quite often) comes in sizes XS-XL and one fitmesh style.  I better hurry off, Angel gets crankier than a certain someone I know if is she’s kept waiting. Toodles!

The Importance of Calling “Dibs”

11-30-207

Dibs – Plural noun  \ ˈdibz \  

The most powerful force  in the universe, “dibs” is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. “Dibs” is a time honored tradition to all, except one… I saw the “Prenzlau” Armchair & Side Table by Kusshon as I was looking at the previews of the Peace on Earth Hunt and I immediately called “dibs”. She looked at me as if I was speaking in a foreign language (which, technically, I was because she uses too many vowels in her words). I found the definition and pasted it into chat. It was like she couldn’t read it. She then rezzed the chair and said “Oh, do you mean THIS chair?” It’s funny how she remembers the story differently [HERE]. (Ok, the part about watching pretty blondes in spandex and capes was true) It was at that point I knew for certain that she either doesn’t understand “dibs” or just completely ignored it. My money is on ignoring me as she does that most the time anyhow…

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post…

The cat doesn’t sit on his lap. He CHOOSES to sit under the feline. He doesn’t light a cigar. The cigar spontaneously lights as it touches his lips. He is the most interesting man in the world (who believes in “dibs”). And what does the most interesting man in the world wear? The Formal Men’s Suit by Wilson’s Designs as Part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. The hunt officially starts tomorrow and everyone is as excited as a child on Christmas Eve holding a plate of cookies for Santa. I’d call “dibs” on the plate of cookies, but I have a feeling I know how that would turn out…

Snow Flurries Under a PaperMoon

Let it Snow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  One of the hardest things to adjust to when I moved south in RL was a “snowless” holiday.  For the first few years, it just didn’t seem the same without cold weather and white flakes drifting down.  Now, I’m not sure how I would adjust to the bitter temperatures I grew up with, and the RL Ripley has never even seen snow.  Would he gaze up in wonder and dig like mad in the white stuff like his SL version does?  One of these days, we will have to make the trip up to the mountains to see.

We Go Together Like Winter and a Sweater

My adorable knitted dress and shrug are a free gift from PaperMoon Creations for their group members.  Since the group has a 0L join fee, I was able to scoop up this set completely for free!  I love the cheery combination of white and red.  You can pair the two pieces together as I have done in my snapshot, or wear them separately.  The dress features a high neckline, spaghetti shoulder straps and a white Nordic-style border below the waistline.  With a slightly faded hue, the texture in the frock is well done, and looks like real yarn.  The open weave of the shrug allowed the top of the dress to peek through, but also provided welcome warmth down my arms.  I didn’t try pairing it with other tops/dresses, but since it can be donned by itself, it could be added to your separates collection for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Eight other past free group gifts are still on the wall for members to scoop up, so if you haven’t visited PaperMoon Creations before, here’s a chance to add a whole collection of free outfits to your wardrobe.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
