First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

Quiet Day

Quiet Day

Good evening, FabFree. I hope the start of your weekend was a wonderful day. I spent a very quiet day just hanging out with friends. The nicest part of that is just being comfy all day.

I picked up this super casual overall set from FurtaCor. I just love FurtaCor’s group. It’s free right now to join and there are a ton of past gifts available ( Up the stairs behind the welcome desk) Plus Lucky Letter and Gachas galore. You could walk into the store with not a stich of clothing to your name and walk out with a full wardrobe!  

So, this is the ‘Claudia Set’ and it’s the latest ladies free gift for the Group. You get the cute overalls, and the little sweater top both can be worn separately, and a pair of extra high top sneakers! The top and overalls come with a HUD to pick twelve shades of denim for the overalls and ten patterns/logos for the top. Just super cute!

Over the fields of snow

Over the fields of snow

Hello, FabFree! I know Christmas is over but a bunch of designers have left their gifts out for us slowpokes to pick up. Like one of my absolute favorites – Teegle.  You know I love my Teeglepets and I’m always on the look out for new gear for  them.  So I was thrilled when I found the loaded Christmas tree at the Teegle main store was still up.

There is a ton of freebies under the Teegle tree but this on is just so special. This is the Snow Drifter Sleigh from Out on a Whim. This classic Cutter Sleigh comes in several versions. One for Horse avatars, one for Teeglepets, one for wearable horses, even one for just display. It’s a beautiful build and I am just so excited to hook Mystic up and go dashing through the snow!

Now, I do NOT know how much longer the gifts will be available over at Teegle. So get over there and scoop  ’em up while you can. Even if you don’t want this sleigh, there are tons of other goodies. Like blankets, tack and skins for your ponies!

Especially that there is a good selection of items for our guys as well as us girls. Gabriel will be happy to hear that one!

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

All I Ever Wanted

All I ever wanted

Hey there FabFree. I feel I must apologize for being absent these last few days. My 2021 started with me being a bit under the weather. No, I didn’t party too hard on New Years eve. Unless you count binge watching “The Mandolorian” and eating popcorn.  Anyway, I had to get back in world ’cause I miss you darlin’s when I’m away too long. Plus, there are freebies to blog!

I’m wearing the latest group gift from one of my favorite designers: Graffitiwear! This is ‘New Years dress’ and it’s the January group gift. If you’re already a member of the 25L VIP group, this cutie is in your past notices ready to go.  If you aren’t a member, 25L will get you in and then you just click the pic at the store. There is also a Subscribers Group to join and get a free set of nails!

I know this says it’s a dress. And if you’re daring enough it can be. Just wear your panties, if you know what I mean. I thought it gave off a more lingerie vibe so that’s how I’m wearing it. Plus, if purple isn’t your favorite color, it come with a HUD to pick one of four sparkly colors.

Last Minute Rush

Last Minute Rush

Hang on FabFree, this is going to be a quick one!

Okay, so I’m late to the party for the awesome Kaithleen’s 300L gift card. But while I was doing the photo for yesterday’s blog post, the group notice came through and slapped me right in the face. ONLY ONE MORE DAY to go get my 300L card! That’s right, 300L just for the group members. The Group does cost a teeny 5L to join but wow… it’s still a great bargain. I spent most of my gift card on this gorgeous “Luna” top but there are tons of beautiful things to spend that Holiday ‘cash’ on.

The caveat is you only have until January 1 to grab that card. Of course the gift card is usable beyond January first.  So get down to Kaithleen’s and help yourself!

Sizes Included for the Luna Top

  • Belleza – Freya Isis
  • eBody Curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

I was so excited to go grab my gift card, I didn’t even change clothes before I popped over. And, being a lazy elf, I didn’t change out of my jeans and new boots! Then I thought… I’m just showing how  cute and versatile the Kathy Boots are! See how different they look using the texture change HUD?! Yeah… that’s it…. 🙂

In the Grey

In the Grey

We are coming right down to the wire for 2020, FabFree. The year can be counted in hours and I for one won’t miss this one. But at least the 2020 year was a good one for hunts and special groups and cool free things.  So this ‘almost the last post for 2020’, I found a couple of nifty giftys from some hunts that are also in their last hours.

First, is my cute pearl grey sweater  from Starlight Apparel. The “Ember” sweater dress is one of the prizes for the Up To Snow Good Hunt over on the Town called Short Leash SIM. Much like the Spookzilla hunt, each designer has placed gifts priced 0 to 25L all over the sim to find. This sweater is one of the 25L prizes. When you land, you can pick up a folder with all the info and prize guides for easy hunting. Now this IS an adult SIM so a bunch of the prizes are… um… adult in nature and no child avatars are allowed.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Okay, Derpy Juli story time. I saw these awesome ” Kathy” boots from Modern Nostalgia on the Peace on Earth hunt web page and I knew I had to have them. The dark charcoal color would go smashingly with my new grey “Ember” sweater, right?! Plus, they’re free! So I went and hunted them down, got home and popped on the sweater opened the boots, wore them …… and they are HOT PINK! What?? Nooo they matched the grey sweater! I’m so peeeeved! I wanted grey, like the picture… I ought to talk to the designer about false adverti….. oh. There’s a color HUD.  Derp.

So, yeah. There is a great color HUD with thirty five colors and patterns.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Both of these Hunts only run until the 31st so like bad old 2020 there’s only a short time left to go grab these great prizes!
