Skating through Black Friday

11-24-2017

 

Nope! Not gonna do it…

While she’s out finding the deals of the day, I’m totally avoiding the hustle and bustle (and cart banging, the fights over the last of an item, the long checkout lines, the hassle of parking…) I decided I’d take the board out before the snow is a permanent fixture on the sidewalks. Let her look at sidewalk sales while I sail the sidewalks…

I got my deals early…

I have lots of freebies and dollarbies to talk about today. My new hairstyle is a 1L marketplace find from Speakeasy. The Clay Fatpack Hair collection comes in a multitude of colors and also includes two hairbases (black and white). I found the Steve Shirt as a FREE gift to members at Justice. The Justice group does have a 10L join fee. I’m still in my Room Pants I showed in my last post by Happy Dispatch. also previously shown are the V-3 Trainers, a FREE group gift from Vale Koer.

Play all day…

There is no work for me today, so I’m going to play the day away with my new pose from Play Poses. Skateboarder is a FREE gift to group members and comes in both male and female poses. The Play Poses group is FREE to join. Enjoy your day, even if you are out in the maddening crowds of Black Friday.

Sugar Lips

Sugar Lips 1

Hey Fab Free!

It’s always fun to get free makeup, because you get to try out some fun looks that you might not usually choose for yourself!  My recent visit to the Candy Fair brought me just such an opportunity, as I picked up a few fun little gifties! You can see the other gifts I picked up HERE.

Sugar-Sweet

My sparkly, sugary lipstick was a fun free gift from Pout! at the Candy Fair It comes in several different shades, and I think it looks quite fun for a night out with friends!  This lipstick comes with an applier for both Catwa and Lelutka.

Macaron Madness

Another little gift at the Candy Fair was the pretty nail polish applier from alaskametro.  I’ve only shown one of the options available, but there are a total of 15 different nail designs, all inspired by my fave french patisserie – the macaron!  This free gift comes with nail appliers for Maitreya and Slink, and there’s an Omega applier in there for good measure!  Here’s a close up of my nails for ya!

Sugar Lips 2

Pocket full of Poses

Last but not least, I always enjoy a good bento pose.  I love the way your fingers can get expressive!  This pose from Foxcity is only 1L on the marketplace!  Super cute!  You can grab this pose right here:

Well, Fab Free – I’d like to wish our American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Although I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving this year (up here in Canadaland!) I’m very thankful to be part of this awesome blogging family – thank YOU all for welcoming me so warmly.

Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st

Desert Boho

Desert Boho

Happy Monday, fabulous readers!

I was looking through a box of old photos and found this picture of me hamming it up during my ’70s boho days on Route 66.

Lol, not really! 😉

But a visit to The Mother Road sim reminded me of the decade I spent living in the High Desert of California. I didn’t live in a trailer in the middle of nowhere, but just a mile or two from my house you could find scenes that looked remarkably like this one… tumbleweeds and all.

Boho Chic Chick

To create my boho look, I stopped by The Boho Culture Fair (TBCF) and picked up a few of the MANY generous gifts.

First off, my outfit is TBCF gift from Rir Life.  The Bartot Top & Lagenlook Pants are a really fun, carefree look. You can’t see them here, but the pants have a short flare on each side, almost like they were made of big scarves. The top ties at the waist with just a hint of skin showing. Both top and pants are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

Accessories

I also picked up some fun items to complement my boho look:

  • My Dream Catcher Choker is a free TBCF gift from SAGA. It comes with a HUD that includes 4 different metal colors for the leaves. Click the choker for the blue resizer menu.
  • My bracelet is a free TBCF gift from !IT! It includes a HUD with 10 different metals and is resizeable through the HUD.
  • Like my pose? You can pick it up as a gift from Stonerella at TBCF. Be sure to wear your Bento hands for the full effect.

The Boho Culture Fair runs through November 9, so you still have a few days to stop by. I could not give you direct landmarks to the individual vendors because you’ll wind up back at the landing point, but you can always do an area search to find what you need. You do need to join the Fair Lovers or Hunters in-world group to pick up most of the gifts –  it is only 1L to join.

BTW, Kat already showed this cute strapless dress by Gypsy Chic that you can pick up at TBCF landing point. Be sure to grab that one, too!

Keeping It All In Balance

Keeping It All in Balance

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share another free gift from Seniha.  In my last post {HERE}, I shared the chevron printed Drizella dress.  While I was at the shop, I also picked up the Jade top, which is a free group gift for the Third Life group.  This cute cropped blouse features a delicate floral pattern scattered over a cream colored background, and a criss-crossed halter style neckline.  It paired beautifully with my black jeans, but I think it would also look lovely with a skirt.  The group has a 10L join fee, but that includes access to a variety of gifts around the grid, so it’s well worth the investment.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fall Festival

Fall Stand

Annual Events…

Every year in my neck of the woods, a fall festival is held the first two weekends in October. You can always count on at least one of the four days to be cold and rainy. This year didn’t disappoint because two days were wet and blustery. I feel sorry for the poor souls that have to sit out in the elements and hawk their wares.

Setting up the stand…

Today’s gifts are perfect for working a fall stand outside in the unforgiving elements. The Autumn Leaf Seat and the Autumn Chalk Board are FREE group gifts at EARTHWORX. Right now the group join is FREE, so hurry on dawn and pick up some nice fall decor gifts.

Bundling up…

My jacket is a group gift from !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. The Winter Jacket is a Teleport Hub group gift. The jacket comes in sizes XS-XL and an alpha mask for standard bodies. While the gift is FREE to members, the Teleport Hub group costs 10L to join.

Looking for Clues

Looking for Clues

Caiben, Private Eye…

I jimmy the lock on the door, step inside and quietly shut the door behind me. I search through the desk drawers and come up empty. The papers on the desk also reveal nothing. The computer is still on and I see a file on the desktop. Bingo! Pulling out my thumb drive, I quickly copy the file and slip out the door unnoticed.

Sometimes a Gentleman…

I disheveled detective look is a Men Only Hunt 10 gift from AITUI. The Gentleman Open Jacket has the printed shirt attached.  The jacket comes in fitted sizes for Signature, Slink and TMP bodies, but it fit my ADAM body just fine.

His Second Life…

The ‘office’ is a FREE  store anniversary gift from Something New. His Second Life comes with four poses within the office. There is also a Her Second Life gift for the ladies.
