Not Everything is Black and White

12-08-2017

Taking a hunt break….

I’ve been working the Peace on Earth Hunt and I need to take a rest. This hunt has had so many great gifts for us guys and today’s look is no exception. The Peace on Earth Hunt gift from B&T Mesh Studio is the Dual Layer Knit Sweater, Black Jeans & “Blackend” Sharks. The jeans come in regular and muscular sizes and the sweater comes in classic XS-XL sizes. But the real treat of this gift are the “Blackend” Sharks Shoes. These well designed shoes are totally worth making the stop for this hunt gift.

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

Dear Santa, Bring Me Some Gas

12-06-2017

Out of gas and out of time….

As I was getting dressed for the pre-Christmas party she had planned, She decided we needed yet another tree to let all the guests decorate. Cute idea, but the timeliness of her idea left a little to be desired. So, I hopped in the truck and headed to the wooded area out back to find a suitable tree for her grand scheme. It didn’t take long to find what I wanted and a quick cut and it was in the back of the truck headed home… Easy peasy, right? Long story short, I ran out of gas. She’s on her way with the spare 5 gallon tank, but she isn’t happy….

Seeing Red… and White

Today’s holiday look is the White Shirt with Tie and Gray Slacks from Wilson’s Designs. This outfit can be yours for just 1L on the Dear Santa Hunt. If you don’t fee like hunting, you can just purchase the gift near the hunt sign for 25L. This hunt runs all month long. Don’t miss it!

Santa Squad

12-05-2017

 

Are you naughty or nice?

You may not know this but I am a member of the Santa Squad. I report back to the North Pole with details on my fellow bloggers here at FabFree, letting the big guy know if they have been naughty or nice.  I hate to say it, but the list has mixed results. It’s a good thing there are still a few weeks left before Christmas….

The good list…

If you are good (and can find the hunt item) you can have two of the items I am wearing as FREE gifts! The Santa Squad Military Shirt with Tee is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift provided by Dark Water Designs. The shirt comes in two styles, with the tee (shown) and without.  And both styles come in sizes S-L and also in three fitmesh sizes. Get on the good team wearing this shirt. You can also pick up the Winter Newsboy Cap, the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Couture Chapeau. With a built in resizer, it even fit my buckethead easily.

Relax… and visit a friend.

Relax_001

Visiting a Friend!

This is a good time of year for catching up with friends. I was visiting a friend’s house this morning and I fell in love with some furniture he had out… this room divider and table. It turned out that he got it as a free group gift for the L’Homme Readers Group. Well I was all excited and wanted the gift for myself!

A trip to get my own…

So we took a trip to UnKindness, my friend kindly escorted me, and I picked up the free UnKindness Bamboo Hall Set for myself. It does come with decor but I like it just topped with a plant myself. I did include a vendor advertisement picture at the bottom of this post so you can see everything that is included in this great free gift. All the pieces are just 1 prim each so this is very low land impact and practical for setting out!

A new sweater too!

After seeing Love and Carson sporting their matching sweaters in their blog post {here} my friend and I decided we wanted those exact same sweaters. So we took a teleport to NUTS Inc to pick up the free POE Hunt prize there so we had something to lounge about the house in. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were matching ladies and men’s group gift sweaters out at the store too that were just as nice! The NUTS Inc group is only 5L to join and if you take your fella along, you can both have a matching sweater like the one I’m wearing in the picture above. I really like the classic colors and warm feel.

Sweater sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L with Alpha
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Addicted To Siss Boom

SissBoomRose60L I have a problem…

I can’t walk through the events wall at Siss Boom without buying something!  What can I say?  Her soft, feminine fashion style just calls to me.  Today I picked up the Persuasion Dress in Rose as shown my avatar.  For a limited time it is just 60L, and well worth every little penny!  A Maitreya Lara size was not included, but the Slink Physique worked on me :).  Try a demo!

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha layer
  • Slink Physique

You’ll find this dress, and several other items on sale this week at the main entrance on the events wall.

btw…  My frosty breath is not an after photo edit.   The Mill sim, where I took my photo today –  auto sends it out when you land as a free gift!  It even breathes.  How fun is that?

Put some jingle bells on…

Let it Snow_001

The White Armory has long been known for turning out beautiful gowns, dresses, and outfits. Recently they rebranded their ladies clothing line to Silvan Moon Designs. On the trail of the POE Hunt, you won’t want to miss their free gift contribution.

Put some jingle bells on.

I swear I heard jingle bells out on the snow as I stood out shivering and watching the sky. Is it too early for Santa to be checking up on us you think? I don’t think so! And I think Santa thought of me early with this free POE Hunt gift from Silvan Moon Designs. The Belladonna dress comes in a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit, and has beautiful details including the ascot scarf at the neck. It is all one piece for easy fitting.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift!

Soon… True Peace

12-04-2017

Finally….

We have come to a peace accord. I am no longer allowed to mention “the chair”, the incident, the attempted murder, or how the chair was really mine. (I did call “dibs” first!) Also, I am to complement her daily (while trying to hide my eye rolls as I say them). And for her part of the peace treaty, she is to smile and say thank you every time I give her said complements. I think I could have gotten a better deal….

We are both NUTS!

We decided to take a leisurely stroll outside in the fresh snow. We even put on our FREE matching sweaters (so we didn’t fight over who got to wear what)  from NUTS Inc. that we found on the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The his and hers Britt and Niels Sweaters come in the following sizes:

For Her…

  • Mesh XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

For Him…

  • Sizes S-L + Alpha Layer
  •  2 Fitmesh sizes

That Peaceful, Easy Feeling…

It didn’t take me long to intentionally trip  playfully shove her down in a snow drift. I ended up down there with her. (she my be small but STRONG).  And after a bit of snow throwing (how I ended up on the bottom, I don’t know, but I was watching out for any object that could be placed over my face) she looked up and pointed out a dove flying overhead. Maybe we will have peace after all. Another FREE gift to be found on the Peace on Earth Hunt is the Soon True Peace pose from Something New . This lovely couples pose includes the dove, the symbol for peace. It may also be a nice pose for the traditional couples Christmas Card. I only hope peace lasts at least through the holidays….
