It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Holy Leggings!

Holy Leggings!

I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of blogging with Fab Free.  Can you believe that?  If you’ve been following my escapades at all for the past year, then you’ll know that I’m not necessarily one for demure clothing.  I like things to be a little bit weird, or a little bit crazy.  I suppose you could call my style “a bit different”.  If you’re down for something just a little different – well I’ve got some finds for ya!

Let me Entice You

My really fun holy leggings are a free gift over at The Makeover Room and are by Entice.  I totally love leggings, and when they’re a bit different, I feel like I’ve struck the jackpot.  These bad boys cost me 0L – I joined The Makeover Room group for free, and snapped them up!  They come in this very versatile rose hue, and are sized for Maitreya, Freya, Hourglass, Isis and Physique.

Always Sassy

Sass has their November group gift out – and I’m wearing the upper part!  It’s this little peekaboo top that kinda describes me to a T – cute with all sorts of random facts about The Lord of the Rings and the history of afternoon tea – aka adorkable.  Don’t even get me started!  Anyway, join the Sass group for 50L , pay the vendor 1L, which will then be returned to you.  It also comes with a sweet little pair of knickers.  Woo hoo!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

I’d just like to take a moment to bow my head in thanks for the men and women who have made sacrifices to serve their countries – 100 years since the end of The Great War, my friends.  Lest We Forget!

Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

Down in The Shire

The Elven Way

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Rip and I are popping in with a quick post featuring a fantastic outfit, which is perfect for role play.  The entire ensemble, from cape to boots, is all included in the prize for The Red Hunt from Feyline Fashions, and it only cost 10L.  The Red Hunt is in support of Team Diabetes of SL, an official and authorized team of the American Diabetes Association.  All proceeds from the hunt go directly to Team Diabetes of SL.  I have several family members in RL who suffer from diabetes, so I am happy to participate in this hunt and pay just 10L each for some fantastic prizes.

The Elven Way

Once I began wearing the different components of the Vashti Anduine outfit, I just knew I was going to wear some fantasy elf ears and head on over to The Shire for an extended visit.  The prize package includes everything I’m wearing in my picture from the necklace and cape right down to the high heel boots.  I love the pairing of deep red and dark blue along with the golden accents.   A collared cape and belly jewel are also tucked inside the box, but I opted not to wear them.  The generous designer included classic avatar versions as well as an Omega Applier, so there is something for everyone in this prize, and you get it all for just 10 Linden dollars.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Applier
  • Top
  • Sleeves
  • Body Veils
  • Cape and Collared Cape version
  • Collar
  • Belt
  • Chest Medallion
  • Necklace
  • Pants
  • Skirt
  • Boots (includes alpha layer and boot base)

Back Down the Hunt Trail We Go

The pupster and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can come across on the trail of The Red Hunt.  We’ll be searching for the red and gray diabetes awareness ribbon.  The hunt, which features red items, runs through right through Diabetes Awareness Month, so you have until November 30th to scoop up some fabulous goodies and support a great cause.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Gone Glamping

Gone Glamping

I’m bundling up and ready for the gusty blasts that November are sending my way!  I still want to spend some time outside, of course – so I totally found the perfect outfit for a camping excursion out in the middle of nowhere! (And by camping, I mean pretending to be very woodsy while having literally no idea what I’m doing!)

Bundle Up

This really fantastic coat and top set come courtesy of Atik and is their newest group gift.  I joined the group for free and have literally been living in this duo since I picked it up!  Isn’t it brilliant?  It takes all the guesswork out of which layers may work together when it comes to coats and tops, and the detailing on it is top knotch.  A great addition to any inventory!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – L

Strolling Up the Avenue

I needed a great pair of pants to go with my new top and coat – luckily The Beautiful Ones have got me covered.  I found their booth over at The Avenue event, and much to my delight there were free gifts to be had!  These corduroy pants are perfect for pretending you’re the outdoors type while still looking unfailingly chic.  Join The Avenue group for free, and pick these bad boys up!  There are a bunch of other gifts there too!  Woohoo!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Now, which way to the hotel?
