Hi there!  I am stopping by again today real quick to share news about the time sensitive !gO! Advent prize for day 5 and some sweet holiday flats I came across as a group gift at #EMPIRE  that just went so nicely with it!  There are so many wonderful gifts out there this month that I wish I could just stay here all day and show them, alas.. there is work.. and family and stuff!

Adventing at !gO! – Day 5

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Alina Jacket & Top with the Hydrangea add on under the advent tree labelled as Day #5.  You can wear the shirt with the jacket or each piece on it’s own if you like.  There are daily prizes for guys too!!

Adding the shoes…

After I had put on my new jacket, I remembered that #EMPIRE had recently released their group gift for December and they matched perfectly with one of the colours in the texture change HUD.  When you are a VIP at #EMPIRE (499L to join), you can pick up tons of group gifts including the Poinsettia Flats I am wearing today, and also take advantage of their group lucky boards.

Snow Day

B&T POE9

 

REALLY? This couldn’t have happened during the work week?

Today was the first snow of the year and it HAD to happen on the weekend. Just my luck! I decided to make snowmen out of lemonade snow. I put on the Gray Desert Sweater and Cargo Pants I happened to find at B&T Mesh Studio while making my way through the Peace on Earth Hunt. As always all the gifts on this hunt are FREE.

Balancing Act

One of Carson’s little helpers tipped me off about a great gift on the KittyCatS Advent Board. December 3rd’s gift is a pair of blue and gray SL Balance Shoes made by Hoorenbeek. Have no fear that December 3rd has passed. The gift is still available as are all the gifts revealed so far. The advent board is FREE, no group to join.

I’ll Make You a Snow Man an an an an ….

Also found on the Peace on Earth Hunt was this FREE Peace on Earth Winter Scene from PixelArt Pose Props.  This prop comes with several animations for the swing and building a snowman. Here’s to hoping the next snow will score me a day off of work.

The outfit comes in the standard sizes XS-XL with alphas included. The shoes are from the Owen Outfit I showed earlier from ALTER, which is also a FREE hunt gift on the Peace on Earth Hunt 9.

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets😉.

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Couch Voguing

Brocade Tiger POE9

Curling Up on the Couch

I have to admit, this is my favorite time of the year. The first nip in the air and it’s time to bring out your favorite fuzzy and warm pullovers. Add some new ones to your wardrobe with these finds. The Gift Sweater from Brocade Tiger can be found for FREE on the Peace on Earth Hunt 9. This design will easily get you in the holiday spirit. I paired it with the Rustler Jeans I got as the FREE group gift from FEARSOM. The group is also FREE to join.

Voguing IT!

I stopped by the Vogue Fair and found two more items to show you. The Diego Jacket created by The Orchid Store as the group gift for the Vogue Fair Group. Both the joiner and the gift are at the entrance to the fair and are both FREE! As I toured the fair I found a pair of Navy Classic Slip Ons at the IT’s Gau booth for just $1L. The Vogue Fair runs through December 7th. So make sure you get there before it’s gone.

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Barber Shop

Barber Shop

A new Sweater.

Byrne has out this great new FREE sweater as their group gift (the group is FREE to join) and you can pick it up before heading off for more winter travels. The gift package includes all the standard sizes, a good quality alpha, and the men’s sweater in black or gold. It’s quite stylish. And style was what was what seemed appropriate as I traveled to “The Village” for my afternoon jaunt.

It was snowing.

It was snowing so I ducked into a little barber shop. It got me remembering that first haircut we all invariably get as children — you know the one… where you cry and your mother takes a picture of the entire traumatic event? It seems, though, that haircuts or at least hairstyles seem to be milestones for changes in our lives.

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel.

The importance of a haircut.

I ran across this quote on google while exploring this little barbershop and it made me reflect a moment, because I have to think that the quote (if Coco Chanel did indeed say it) doesn’t only apply to women. A lot of men get life changing haircuts as well.

Many important milestones come with trips to the salon or at least personal stylings —  such as dances or weddings… and I’m sure the fellas (not just the ladies) get shimmied up with a fresh haircut too. In some cultures the cutting of hair is deeply spiritual, so I took this picture of myself at this quaint little Barber Shop in my brand new Freebies (and I’ve got one more to tell you about) and thought about the changes that are in store for Astrid and I as the new year approaches. We will certainly have some stories to tell you.

The Beaded Bracelet

Did you catch the fancy new bracelet I was sporting? That’s courtesy of Cold Ash, and is their November L’Homme Magazine reader’s gift. The L’Homme Magazine group is Free to join and you can pick up many free gifts from many stores across the grid, including this free bracelet which comes in a left or right version as well as a standard or TMP version. It is black with a couple of brown beads on it to make it extra versatile. And it’s a nice touch to a classic outfit. Every gentleman needs a little extra now and then.

I won’t be getting my hair cut today. But I enjoyed my wander around this shop. There are changes in store for Astrid and I in real life. All good stuff. And we’re excited about sharing our adventures here… and there… with all of you.

A Girl Can Never Have Too Much Glitter

Snapshot_001
Good afternoon FabFree Readers!  The other day I announced that Glitter had put up a new FabFree group gift [HERE], and today I am wearing the Dora Mesh Outfit in Beige outfit, myself!  If you are a fan of warm autumn hues, don’t let this outfit pass you by!  Due to the use of different Second Life windlight settings, you might notice in the vendor ad that the blouse looks more gold, and in mine – more green.   In standard lighting it is a pretty gold/green blouse with chocolate brown pants.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is always free to join, so it won’t cost you a cent.

Glitter is actually offering this same outfit in many different colours for different groups for free, so if you love it – you can join other groups and pick up more!  As my blog title states…  A girl can never have too much Glitter! I can see mix and matching possibilities🙂.

What sizes you’ll  get…

The Dora Mesh outfit includes the blouse and pants as separates in XS-XL mesh sizes with the co-ordinating alpha layers.
