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!

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.

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.

Bringing Home The Tree

Bringing Home the Tree
Hello there, Fab Free!  Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window.  Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes.  “OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears.  All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously.  I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!

Crimson Concoction

The other day, as Rip and I sought out our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion.  In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit.  Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress.  As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley!  This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf.  Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off the winter chill.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fit mesh
  • Fit mesh scarf

Life is Better in Boots

You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear.  I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals.  Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store.  Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options.  You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately.  They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required.  To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here.  With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.

Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way.  Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple?  My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess.  I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Getting the kinks worked out…

Writing these posts are hard work… Teleporting all over the place to find great freebie finds for all of you can leave me sore and tense. Good thing my latest find was perfect for that afternoon massage. At Rose Marine & Polo Paul I found the Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals for FREE! No group join, just click the gift and receive. It’s that simple. The yoga pants come in the standard sizes XS-XL, and the sandals are great for just hanging around your skybox or estate.

Towel me more…

Lovely knitwear

Lovely knitwear

Taking cues from your peers.

Upon reading Carson latest blog post {HERE} I was inspired to head down to Prism Designs to check and see if there was a group gift out for the ladies as well. I’ve been a longtime member of the Prism Designs group thanks to being introduced to this particular merchant via the FabFree blog, specifically Julianna’s posts, and have kept the group tag since those early SL days due to Prism’s top notch products, great deals, and frequent gifts. With that being said, it didn’t take very much poking around at all to locate the new group gift at Prism Designs and when I saw what it was, it made me rethink the theme of that ‘blog segment’ that I had planned on doing.

It’s all about keeping warm and toasty.

What I had originally had in mind centered around ball gowns and party wear but with the chill, upon us, I thought I’d highlight the often understated knitwear. At face value, it’s probably not as exciting as demon dresses or warrior armor but hey, this is SL and I’m sure I’ll find some interesting designs to wear. Hence I bring to you today the Paige dress, the new and free group gift from Prism Designs mentioned above. If you have to brave the cold then why not opt for something that will not only make you feel snug and cozy but looks it as well. Personally, I feel that the Paige dress strikes a good balance between being form flattering and comfortable to wear. It’s tan belt really accentuates the waistline but is a simple enough accessory that it doesn’t overwhelm the dress’ loose high neck. If you’re looking to be a stand out while walking the snowy streets this season then the Paige dress will certainly work in your favor when it’s warm magenta coloring contrasts with the icy backdrop. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with a nifty alpha layer included. As it is almost to the end of November, I’m not sure how long this gift will be out so hurry on down to Prism Designs today to join their free group and get your hands on this awesome dress. While you’re there do check out the gifts and hunts room to pick up the other group gifts that are out and to also check out the different hunts that Prism Designs are currently participating in. Have fun!

Don’t you just love an extension?

I certainly do, especially when it comes to real life deadlines (lol) Sometimes extension mean good things in SL and the prime example of that is the sale at Truth being extended until 12-noon slt today! The sale was mentioned {HERE} by Love and {HERE} by Kathryn, but to give you a refresher 48 selected hair styles a the Truth Mainstore have been marked down to 75L per color pack (100 L per variety pack and 500 L per fatpack) The hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is called Foxy and comes with hat/no hat variations as well as hair of different sizing so that it doesn’t cut into your front. There are two alpha layers provided with one that covers up the avatars ears in case you don’t want those sticking out. What’s more both the hair and hat comes with extensive huds giving you the ability to customize to your heart’s content. If you’ve missed out on the Truth Hair sale so far don’t delay as there are other great quality hairstyles to be had.

How about a pretty pair of heels?

There’s really nothing that gives an outfit an extra punch like statement shoes do. I’m a big fan of bright shoes in my first life, which would probably explain why I saw drawn to this pink pair from Kendrasy Creations. These heels are only for Slink High feet and I just love its sweet hue and minimalist design. The bright color though really speaks for itself and I’ll be wearing this pair for a while. Pop down to Kendrasy Creations for this dollarbie. You don’t have to wear any specific group tag to get in on this great bargain.

Hitting two birds with one stone.

Not that I’m about to be throwing stones at any innocent birds but do you remember the post I made {HERE} detailing the gorgeously metallic pair of shoes that are currently out as Enertia’s group gift? Well, joining the Toxxic Design Studios group also gives you access to group gifts from the AlterEgo skin store as well! The skin that I’m wearing in the picture above is called Natalia in the sunkissed tone. As a fan of subtle makeup and full eyebrows, I fell in love with this skin instantly. In the package, you’ll get three different classic skin with dark brows, light brows, and no brow options as well as a varied number of appliers. Those are:

  • Appliers for Loudmouth
  • Appliers for mesh heads that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Soul Uni Standard and Mer
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP mesh bodies
  • Appliers for Mesh bodies that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, and Maireya mesh feet

The final four appliers are in one easy to use Hud so it doesn’t take up inventory space. The Toxxic Designs Studio group is currently set a 0L join fee and as both AlterEgo and Enertia give you group gifts regularly, I suggest you go and snap the current ones asap. You’ve got nothing to loose by joining this free and only a gorgeous, well-detailed skin to gain.

And that’s a wrap for today! Have fun in your SL explorations dear readers. Stay safe!

Back Against the Wall

Prism

The Work Week Cometh

I thought I’d get one more post in before the work week begins (and very little time to blog). I joined the group for FREE at Prism for Men and scored the Jeremy Outfit as the group gift. Astrid previously posted it here. This mesh outfit includes the shirt and pants with accompanying alphas AND a HUD to change each to four different colors. (4 pants x 4 shirts = 16 different outfit combinations).

Last Minute Hunting

There is still time left to find items in the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. All items on this hunt are $0L – $1L.  I found the Men’s Classic Checkerboard Sneakers at Kingbal Stores for FREE all it just took a little searching. I also found some poses from Pics & Poses for FREE. I really need to update my collection.

Like an Anchor Around My Neck

Also on the MenStuff Hunt, I found this FREE Gold Anchor Necklace at ELYSIUM. The necklace also come in silver if gold isn’t your thing. It’s off to work, I’ll post when I can.

 

It’s good to be back!

A Snowy White Sweater and a Black Friday Sale

Fantasy Deer

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have a quick, time-sensitive post for you today.  On a tip from reader Starr Devereaux (thank you so much, Starr!), Ripley and I journeyed over to Wasabi Pills to check out their Black Friday Sale.  When we arrived yesterday, I was overjoyed to notice that this Fifty Linden Fridays Belle mesh hair was still set out in front of the store for only 50L.  I scooped it up, did a little happy dance, then headed inside to purchase a few (OK, OK, more than a few) Basics Packs of hair, which are on sale for 70% off.  I had to reassure Ripley that I still have enough Linden dollars left over to keep him well supplied with Ripley Snacks, and then his tail set to wagging once more.  Unfortunately, the Fifty Linden Friday Hair is no longer available, but you can scoop up the basics pack for Belle, and have more shades than I do, for 70% off.  Wasabi Pill’s Black Friday Sale runs through November 28th.

Snowy Sweater

In my post [HERE], I shared that Mie Beck strives to offer quality mesh items for 50L in her Marketplace shop.  I went back to poke around for more bargains, and I discovered this lovely white knitted sweater dress, just perfect for the season.  With a wide, ribbed, folded-down neck, and decorative cable stitching, this dress is packed with textural detail.  It reminds me of the sweaters that my grandmother used to knit for me when I was a little girl.  In addition, it features long sleeves, and falls to about mid-thigh.  You could definitely wear leggings underneath to keep your legs toasty if you are going to be out on a cold winter’s day.   The sweater is made exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and is available in other colors in the Beck Marketplace store.

Happiness is Shopping for a Scarf

Siss Boom participates in Sixty Linden Weekend Sales Event, and when Rip and I traveled there to check out this week’s offerings, I noticed the wall filled with 24 group gifts.  I decided to pick up a few.  I had joined Siss Boom’s group quite some time ago, and although it costs 500L to join, the *24* generous group gifts such as this free Ragland scarf in PAISLEY (woot! woot!) really make the fee a worthwhile investment.  Love previously featured this scarf in her post [HERE].  I adored it then, and am still enthralled with its delicate silk texture.  The soft, muted tones of the shawl really complemented my dress.  I draped it around my neck, and was quite pleased with the effect.

After popping home to grab a few of those Ripley Snacks for the road, the pupster and I dashed through the snow over to Snuggles Forest and met Jinx, a friendly deer.  I have to admit, though, Ripley kept a careful eye on those antlers while I gave Jinx a pat.  It’s so good to have a protective pal to keep me safe!  Until next time, wonderful readers…. happy shopping!
