Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I may be something of a grump but there are a few things I really do like about the Holiday Season.  I have to admit, I enjoy the “finding a tree” rituals. The tree lots or cutting a fresh tree. Nothing makes it really Christmas time for me like the smell of evergreens and some hot chocolate at the tree farm.

Winter Wonderland

Another Holiday tradition has to be the Wash’s Winter Wonderland Cart Sale. And I have to include here a huge thank you to all the designers who don’t forget the men of Second Life when they stock those Carts! On that note, Dark Water Designs has set out a handsome coat and sweater combo for us in four festive colors: the’Winter jacket Combo’. It’s a combo times two. You get the jacket sweater as a combination and the sweater can be changed from plain to a snowflake pattern.

Sizes Included

  • FitMesh
  • Classic Mesh S_L

Holiday Card

Today is a good day, My FabFree Fam. This is my 500th post here on the Fabulously Free Blog. Can you believe it? I can’t believe it myself. I had never blogged a post in my life when Love and Prudence took a chance on me back in 2014. Since then there have been highs… and lows. But, wow, what a ride! Thank you, FabFree Family, you readers extraordinaire and my Blog Sisters. Thank you, Love for taking a chance on me not just once… but twice. I wish each and every one of you the best Holiday season and the most Fabulous of New Years!

Cheers and hugs and love,
Juli and Gabriel and Baxter, Badger, Luna and Nox.

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M and L (includes separate alpha layers for sweater, pans and skates)

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Christmas Lights All Over Town

The Lights Have a Mind of Their Own

The pupster and I picked up a couple of more hunt items that really got me into the holiday spirit.  I was even motivated to dig out the box of Christmas lights and start decorating.  Notice I said “start.”  Those string lights must have spent all summer knotting themselves up inside their storage container.  Last year, when I put them away, they were neatly coiled.  I don’t know what happened… all I can say is those things have a mind of their own.  It took quite awhile to get the whole mess untangled.  Well, at least I had my wrap top and ribbon choker to keep me looking beautiful in the midst of the snarled jumble.

The Colors of the Season

I just love the bright contrast between red and green in my new Rhea Wrap Top that I picked up over at [QE] Designs.  This fabulous prize from The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt set me back just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  I’m all about hunting down delicious gingerbread cookies (yum!), and when I can scoop up budget friendly goodies as well as cookies, you can count me in!  Featuring long sleeves, a cropped hemline and a curve-hugging wrapped design, this little number is full of holiday cheer.  The package also includes a texture change HUD, which enables you to select a cotton or knit fabric as well as to customize the color on each half of the shirt.  You can have one side red and the other green as I have done, or you can have a solid green or solid red color scheme.  It’s great to have options!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Jingle Belles

My Jingle Belle necklace from Cog and Fleur offered the chipper tinkling of a trio of jingle bells as I struggled to unravel the stubborn string of lights.  The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt gift also included a coordinating pair of earrings that I opted not to wear for my photo.  This bauble set will provide the ideal finishing touch for your outfits throughout the holiday season.  To add this jewelry set to your collection, all you have to do is teleport to the shop, locate the cookie concealed inside, and pay one Linden dollar.

Now that I’ve finally unscrambled the unruly lights, I’d better finish what I started and get to work hanging them up.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Trimming the Tree

trimming the tree

A little more sparkle for the tree, don’t you think? More lights and ornaments? … absolutely! After all that gift shopping I did I need the tree to be just as spectacular. Okay… I admit… I may be just a little Christmas Crazy. OCD = Obsessive Christmas Decorating!

Spruced Up

I found this lovely dress from Una at the Epiphany Holiday Round for just 75L per play. I love the spruce green and the short but modest style. The ‘Mariena’ gacha features this short dress in six colors, a long dress, a cardigan and the short dress wrapped in Christmas lights is the Rare.

A Little Christmas Shopping

A little Christmas Shopping

I love this time of year! I love the shops all decorated and the crisp flurries of snow. The carols and the smell of cinnamon and spruce. **Breathes in the Holidays**

Something warm….

Of course, I love having something nice and warm to wear while I’m out braving the crowds and the weather to find those perfect gifts for everyone. Lucky for me, Lybra has this gorgeous coat up for grabs in their Gacha at The Imaginarium. The “Winter Jacket” comes in four common colors and two Rares. There is also a romper to win with six colors. I think the 75L per play is well worth the quality of the coats!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Something Sparkly…

I also picked up this sweet sparkly necklace at the Imaginarium from Dreaming Thicket. This is “Ice Crystals Necklace” and it’s the free gift set out for everyone. The necklace is resizable so you can get the perfect fit. Thanks for the “Happy Holidays”, Dreaming!

The Imaginarium runs until December so hurry over to get your Gacha on and pick up some great free gifts!

Grumpy Old Saint Nick

You Had Me at Meow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Since we have been having good luck lately, Ripley and I decided to continue hunting this weekend.  Along the trail of The Grumpy Santa Hunt, we found the cutest silvery romper for just 1 Linden dollar.  This outfit certainly got me in the mood for the song Silver Bells and some holiday shopping.  Well, that is until I went to Walmart in RL, and changed my mind about the shopping part.  The traffic and crowds {shudder} …. bring me shopping on SL any day!

If THIS is What Santa Brings When He’s Grumpy…

…I can’t imagine how wonderful his gifts are when he is chipper!   With large gray snowflakes scattered across a dark silver background and cozy metallic tights, the Kawaii Romper from BlondeQueen has a definite wintry vibe.  I really like the way the material shimmers in the light.  The shirt portion is a tube top style with no sleeves or neckline, so I added a warm fuzzy jacket before heading out to explore the Snow Falls sim.  My feet are covered up by my fur wedge boots, but underneath, the leggings extend all the way past the heel, so your ankles will stay cozy warm no matter how hard Jack Frost tries to chill you.  (The jacket and boots are not part of the prize.)  To grab a copy of this outfit for yourself, all you have to do is teleport to the shop and look for the lump of coal that Santa left.  After that, pay one Linden dollar and you’ll have yourself a merry little outfit.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until next time, happy hunting!

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!
