Conjuring

conjuring_001

Hey Gang!

Just recently I was casting a spell (as I always do), and this photo was taken just before things went horribly wrong…  I mean, I was pretty oblivious (as usual!), and had no idea how powerful my conjuring spell really was!  Huh!  I guess I pack a wallop!

Enamored

I’ve discovered a wonderful “new to me” shop thanks to our own Ms. Julianna!  Honestly, I am enamored with most everything in the shop and to my delight discovered they have a discounted area with gorgeousness I can share with y’all on the blog.

This shop is called Oubliette and this adorbs dress I am wearing is from that area.  It was only 50L and I am so in love with it. (Y’all know I love pink but did you know I love anything celestial too?  IE Moons, stars, suns)  I felt so magical in it that I whipped out my spell book and well, started casting spells!  This dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Not sure what the …. person?  Behind me is wearing.  0.o

More soon!

Bold

Coming Soon

Bold & Beautiful

First off, I have some exciting the news to share that Bold & Beauty & Rebel Gal‘s store group is currently free to join. This group used to be paid, so now is a great time to join and grab their group gifts for free. My hairstyle and my golden choker are both free group gifts, and they certainly help you create a bold and beautiful look.

Makeover Time

I’ve been playing around with my Lelutka EvoX head lately, and have been in the process of a makeover. There are a bunch of freebies and cheapies in this post which I collected from all over the grid recently to put my new look together. I’m just going to list them all! Let’s go!

  • My lovely eyes are a group gift from Euphoric, called Hope Eyes. This is an older gift, but I wanted to mention that they recently updated the eyes to work with Lelutka EvoX heads! Just pop over to the store, join the free group and get a new copy of these eyes as well as the Magic Lenses eyes; both products have updated to work with the new Lelutka EvoX heads! The eyes fit Lelutka Evo/EvoX heads, Lelutka Origin, Genus, and Catwa heads.
  • The lovely eyeshadow I am wearing is a free group gift at Tutti Belli. The eyeshadow fits LelutkaEvoX only and it comes in several tones of shimmery colours.
  • Speaking of Tutti Belli, I also grabbed the gorgeous “Selfish Lipstick Collection” with my 800L store credit, which Jacx talked about at length in her blogpost here. The free 800L store credit expires today, and you need the free group to get them. This lip applier gives my avatar a much more realistic look, and it fits LelutkaEvoX only. The lipstick collection costs 499L, leaving room for more free store purchases with the gift credit.
  • My lovely, soft skin is from the 1L sale board at 7 Deadly S[K]ins. I visit this board almost every day and I try to collect any new skins! They appear and reappear often and each offer is only 1L. So if you can’t snag it today keep an eye out; it might come around again! This is the Mercy skin, and it’s on the board for 1L at the time of my posting. It comes in a fatpack of 10 skin tones. The skin fits LelutkaEvoX only.
  • I am also wearing a free neck fix from 7 Deadly S[K]ins which is designed to be worn with their Lelutka EvoX skins. It removes any neck seam completely as long as you match the skin with 7 Deadly S[K]ins tones! They have boxes out of these neck fixes out for free around the store.
  • The faux fur stole is one of the FLF fifty linden deals going on at Blueberry right now. The boa comes in a pack of colours, and it is quite elegant. It fits Reborn, Freya, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Perky, Petite, Physique, and Venus. This item is only on sale for a limited time, and you can read more details about it and see a 50L gown from the sale in my recent post here.

See you soon, FabFree!

All the Fixin’s

photo 2 copy 4

Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

The Fixin’s

My super cute dress is a find from Reed, it is the free gift for the Mesh Body Friends Group, which is free to join.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

My pumps and socks are the newest free group gift from Mosquito’s Way.  The group there costs only 50L to join and well worth it.  These fit:

  • Hourglass
  • Physique

They also have a HUD to turn materials on or off.

Til next time gang, stay warm!  (and if you are someplace warm, send heat!)

Merry Xmas!

Merry Xmas!

Hey FabFree! I wanted to pop in to wish you all a Merry Christmas or enjoy whatever other holiday you are celebrating tonight! I have a few limited-time offers to share so I’ll jump to the presents!

A Christmas Jumper

My jumper and top are past advent gifts from Paper.Sparrow from days 22 and 23. They are both now on sale for 50 Linden each. This is such a cute outfit and perfect for lounging around the house, sitting by the fire, and opening presents. It was perfect for the relaxing Christmas evening I had at home. For the most part, advent is over but you can still buy the past gifts at Paper.Sparrow for 50L each. This sale will not be on long, so go now while it’s still available!

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Lara

Hair for a Limited Time

Firelight has a great advent calendar this year filled to the brim with cute hairstyles. For a limited time, you can collect all of the past advent gifts for free. That’s 24 free hairstyles! You need to join the free Firelight group to get in on the offer. These are mostly ladies hairstyles, but there are a few goodies thrown in there for the men as well. The beautiful hair I am wearing is one of the free advent gifts. This hairstyle (Rosie) comes in two lovely shades of light reds/gingers. Note that this offer will likely be gone after today. I’m not sure how long these will be available; they could be out longer and they also might not be. The creator also set out a sign saying that there will be a gift card available on December 31st-January 1st, so you may want to stay in the group to collect that giftcard!

A Little 25L Christmas Gift

Finally, the little Christmas decoration seen behind me is a wooden engraving of Santa Claus and Mrs. Clause that hangs on the wall. You can get this for 25 Linden in EED’s booth at Winter Wonderland at Malus Park. Winter Wonderland is open until December 31st, so you still have time to collect the gifts.

Have a good one!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

Wintry Fun Deals (and more snowball fights!)

snowball fight

Hey gang!

I’m still out here being the trouble maker that I am.  Mainly because I found *the* most funnest (its a word!!!!!  lol) thing ever!  Fluffy Stuff has, well, basically a snowball fight that you can buy and it’s still on sale from SoKawaii Sunday yesterday for only 65L!  Not only does it give you some cute poses, but when you go into mouselook and aim, you can throw snowballs at things and people and anything!  There was no one around so Santa got hit quite a few times.  I really got sidetracked playing with this.  Lots of fun!

I’ve also still been stalking The Arcade, where I got another pair of these super cute fluffy boots from Gild (mens and women sizes, one size fits each) for only 50L a play and also this awesome jacket and leggings by Amias, which is 75L a play.  I’m wearing the Maitreya size.

Again, time sensitive so I can get y’all that awesome sale at Fluffy Stuff.  Not sure how long it will be up for though, so if you want some wintery fun (it really is!) run over and grab this while it’s on sale!

We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!

Challenge Accepted!

Challenge Accepted!

Grandma’s been staring through the window ever since it started to snow…
If it gets any worse I’ll have to let her in.

Hey Gang!

Yeah I’m starting off with a bad snow joke, and that’s snow joke!  So Jacx was talking about a snowball fight the other day in her post and I’ve decided to take her up on her offer.  I’m not sure she knows what she has gotten herself into though.  I am *very* competitive!  I also have the same set of poses from Fashiowl from Shop & Hop (free), so I am armed and ready to go too!  (I can’t throw snowballs without arms, you know!)

I’ve put together an eclectic combo of an outfit for the fight, me and cold aren’t the best of buddies (despite my Elsa obsession!), and so whatever I can throw together that keeps me warmest, gosh-darnit, that’s what I’m gonna wear when it’s cold!

Freebies, Freebies and More Freebies! (and maybe a couple of great deals for good measure!)

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the free mesh heads from Lelutka this past week, I have the *worst* luck trying to get into crowded places like that and I feel like I am always the last to grab anything that there is a big rush for.  Nonetheless, I am sporting the brand spankin’ new Kaya head which is a free group gift (free group join) from Lelutka.  (There’s one for the guys as well!)  My skin is also a freebie, it is a group gift from Koonz.  Their group is free to join.

Usually I use my own shape, but I really liked the free shape for Kaya by Wren’s Nest.  It is a free group gift and the group is temporarily free to join.  Her shapes are really nice.

This awesome Santa style jacket is from Gabriel and you can get it for men and women both at their store for only 50L.  It’s super warm for snowball fights too!  For women this fits Maitreya and Legacy.  It does come with the option of a shirt underneath too.

I am absolutely enamored with my fluffy boots, they are from Gild at The Arcade.  They have all the colors you can wish for of fur boots and the machine is 50L a play.  They have them for both men and women.

Finally, my hair and hat is a Fifty Lindens Friday pick from Wasabi, I just checked and she still has it up, but not sure how long it will be up for!

‘Tis the Season for Presents & Self-Care

Coming Soon

‘Tis the season for presents, FabFree. You may want to go gifting for others at this time of the year, but I consider the gifts I collect around the grid nice Christmas gifts I give to myself. Hey, I deserve it for working so hard all year! There’s nothing wrong with a bit of self-love and self-gifting.

The Advent Calendar @ Paper.Sparrow

Speaking of the seasons of gifts, we all know the biggest Christmas gift event is advent. I’m doing a little feature today on the advent calendar at Paper.Sparrow. I love this store and the calendar is adorable this year! You can pick up a new gift every day from December 1st- 24th and you need to join the Paper.Sparrow group to get in on it. Past days gifts at Paper.Sparrow cost only 50L each and anyone can buy these. To get the rest of their advent prizes this month for free, join the Paper.Sparrow group for only 25 linden. You can also still grab the gifts for day 4 and 5 for free in the group notices once you join the group. Today I am wearing the Polar Blue version of the Hana dress, my favourite prize from the calendar so far this year. This is a past gift (from day 3), so it now costs 50L to buy if you missed it.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

PS: the TRUTH hair I am wearing was previously blogged by Juli here. Read her post for all the details. I wanted to let you all know that the FLF sale was extended all weekend long so if you didn’t get a chance to grab it on Friday for 50L you can get it at this reduced price until Sunday.

See you soon, FabFree!
