My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! 😛

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. 🙂

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the free group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. 😀

A Million Bucks

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks.  It’s all about pulling the right things together ;).  I managed to  put my entire outfit together for free today, and only spent 75L on the hair!

A Formal Find

COCO Designs, who has a plethora of free group gifts with a free group join, has added this stunning black Halter Gown to their group gifts area!  I should pay my thanks to Carson, who was the one that alerted me of this great find and inspired my look today.  I am so glad he mentioned it, because I do very much love this dress with the gorgeous texturing and sleek leg peek design.  Normally I am not a fan of ruffles and frills, but the ruffle around the bottom of the long sexy draped skirt really balances it out.  Not only does this gown look fantastic when I am standing still, but it moves very nicely with you when you walk. (Thanks Carson!)

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass

Bundle yourself up…

The gown does not include the fur scarf, however you can find this as a free group gift in the same section at COCO Designs in three colours, so just pick it up while you are there!  They work with all kinds of avatars as they are adjustable.

Don’t Forget Your Dancing Shoes

The other day [HERE], I mentioned that The Arcade Gacha has several free gifts (just priced at 0L) under their Christmas Tree, and I am still unpacking the boxes I picked up!  I found these amazing Empire Cranesbill heels that include a texture change hud with plenty of colour options in one of those boxes!

Compatible with:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

The Finishing Touch

I have blogged about these lovely Xia locks by Truth Hawks before, but now… Truth is participating in the 12 Days of Savings promotion on marketplace and you can pick up several styles priced at just 75L each!  Xia is one of them 🙂
