Her Blahness

Snapshot_004Hello FabFree Readers!  As much as I love red.. and even green on occasion, I am getting a little tired of wearing red and green, and green and red!  I was really happy to find a couple of free gifts that were still holiday themed, but in different colours.  Today… I’m in black, gold and red!

Starting with my boots…

These very well made winter boots by Fri.day are red, black white and gold and are free (priced at 0L) under the giant Christmas Tree at The Arcade.  They are compatible with my Maitreya Lara body (I’m sure they’ll work with whatever you are wearing!), and include an alpha layer for those on the system body too.

My Nutcracker Pants!

I picked up these awesome Nutcracker Pants by Sn@tch for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  These are compatible with system bodies and include an OMEGA applier.  A texture change HUD is included for several different colours, but I went with coal, because it showed the gold nutcracker design down the sides of the legs best. As Kathryn mentioned in a previous post…  if you are trying to stuff your pants into a pair of boots, appliers are really the way to go!
Tres Blah December 2016 Group Gift

Her Blahness

If you like my sweatshirt, you should head on over to Tres Blah and slap on your “Her Blahness” tag above your head to pick up the Olsen Winter Sweatshirt as a free group gift in five different fun prints!  Arrows are my jam, but as you can see from the Tres Blah vendor ad to the left, the other prints are super cute too!

Sizes included:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique

This group will set you  back 100L, but there are several other group gifts to pick up like these [HERE] and [HERE], making it well worth the join fee!

Gray Day

Gray Day_001

I want to show you a quick gift before it’s no longer available!

Are you doing your advents?

I have an advent to add to your list of must stop trips! If you are a member of Meva, this generous creator has set out an Advent too! One gift each day, just stop by and pick it up! The group join fee is 100L, but you’ll be getting a gift each day for stopping by!

I teleported to the Meva this morning and picked up this beautiful gray turtleneck sweater with its lush velvety texture as my gift! It only came in one size, but it fit my Maitreya body perfectly. So I believe it is a Maitreya fit. You could probably get it to fit other mesh bodies or a standard body with some fiddling.

Happy Advent Hunting!

A Little Glitter

Glittered Up

I found sled rides!

I found a sim with sled rides! Of course when I saw these two beautiful horses in their festive wear near a fence I hopped out of the sleigh and went over to say hello. Sled ride instantly over… pictures ensuing! But that’s okay because I have gifts to show off to you!

Have you been keeping up with Advents?

I’m showing you two Purplemoon Creations Advent Calendar Gifts in this post. The first I want to mention is my gorgeous plaid dress with its gold trim. For just 50L for the group tag, you’ll be getting a months worth of FREE gifts, including this beautiful dress.

The Kari dress is day 6 and comes in the following sizes for your convenience:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink

You can also check out a post about three other Purplemoon Creations Advent gifts that Love blogged [Here] if you are still on the fence about rather or not to leap into this advent calendar!

Glittered Up 2

More from Purplemoon.

I love that Purplemoon lets you pick up any day you missed and doesn’t limit you to just the day of the calendar that you are on. So if you haven’t stopped by there, be sure to also pick up day 5, which is this gorgeous formal necklace and earrings set, which I matched with my holiday outfit look. As mentioned before, you’ll need the group tag, but remember, you’re getting 24 days worth of gifts.

You haven’t forgotten Alice Project Have you?

There is still a FREE to all Alice Project Advent Gift hair out every day at Alice project. But never fear! If you miss a day, like I did, you can still pick up the previous gift for a mere 50L. I was really in love with Zahara and didn’t want to do without it. This pretty mesh over the shoulder style was perfect for my look, and for 50L it didn’t break my bank to pick it up. Plus I picked up today’s Free to all gift while I was there!

And Eyebrows!

I am in LOVE with these eyebrows! I’m not sure which day it is on the KittyCats Advent Calendar, maybe 5 or 6? But I know that the FREE alaskametro “Glimmer” and “Glitter” holiday eyebrows for mesh heads is in there! No group is required, just click the calendar days for FREE.

You’re going to LOVE this gift as much as I do! You’ll be getting two sets of applier eyebrows in a multitude of colors. One palate is “glimmer” for a little more subtle shine, while the other palate is “glitter” for more sparkle. (I’m showing you glitter.)

What you get:

  • “Glimmer” — Various Shades of Silver, Gold, and Bronze (6 total)
  • “Glitter” — 6 Shades total including Silver, Red, Purple, Mauve, Green, and Teal
  • Appliers for: Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega

And while you are at it, consider stopping by Esgaroth for that sleigh ride. The sim really is beautiful!

Winter Memories

Trucking

Memories.

I learned how to drive on an ancient stick shift truck much like the one in this picture. At least that’s how it seems in the mind’s eye of my inner child. It had a wooden bed and holes in the floor board and I was 15 1/2 and it was winter and I was certain I would not survive the cold as there was no heat in that thing. Yet somehow I managed to grow a fondness for those first experiences. So when I put together my ensemble, I had to capture a picture in front of this pick-up at Rosemoor Sim to share with you.

Trucking 2

The shirt.

I picked up my holiday shirt (it’s an applier T-shirt, and I adore applier shirts as they fit any body shape) for FREE from House of Ruby. The Advent Calendar Hunt is on right now, and House of Ruby is participating. Just hunt down the little candle and this gift is yours for 0L.  You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega.

I needed a scarf!

It was cold outside! But I found a free scarf! If you haven’t stopped by Prism to pick up the advent gifts there, don’t despair. It’s not too late. You can only pick up one gift per day, but you can choose any day (as long as it’s already passed). So in other words if you go today, you could choose any ONE of days 1 through 7. So if you like my scarf you can wear your FREE Prism group tag today and choose day 2 to pick it up! It’s rigged mesh, so it will fit and flow with your body!

One more thing to top it off!

Don’t forget about the Alice Project Advent Calendar! Every day a FREE to all gift hair is being set out, but if you are a member of the VIP group (it is 750 to join) you also get an additional gift. 750 seems steep until you realize you’ll be getting an extra 24 hairs and since Alice Project does these gift projects rather frequently, stay in the group and you’ll be set for the next time they hand out extra gifts to VIP members (which seems to be pretty often in my experience).

I’m wearing Jenn from a couple of days ago. Unlike the daily FREE gifts, the VIP gifts are available to VIP members throughout the advent season, so if you miss a day, you can still pick it up later, as long as you get there by the 24th.

!gO! Pick Up Day 5!

Snapshot_002
Hi there!  I am stopping by again today real quick to share news about the time sensitive !gO! Advent prize for day 5 and some sweet holiday flats I came across as a group gift at #EMPIRE  that just went so nicely with it!  There are so many wonderful gifts out there this month that I wish I could just stay here all day and show them, alas.. there is work.. and family and stuff!

Adventing at !gO! – Day 5

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Alina Jacket & Top with the Hydrangea add on under the advent tree labelled as Day #5.  You can wear the shirt with the jacket or each piece on it’s own if you like.  There are daily prizes for guys too!!

Adding the shoes…

After I had put on my new jacket, I remembered that #EMPIRE had recently released their group gift for December and they matched perfectly with one of the colours in the texture change HUD.  When you are a VIP at #EMPIRE (499L to join), you can pick up tons of group gifts including the Poinsettia Flats I am wearing today, and also take advantage of their group lucky boards.

Have a great day!

It’s As Easy As 1 2 3

Snapshot_007

Hi there Fabulous Readers!  Have you been keeping up on your daily holiday advents?  There are some stores that allow us to catch up on previous days picking up multiple previous days at a time, which is a blessing because the FabFree Advent Listing has grown to over 75 participating stores now and that makes it really tough to hit them all each day!

Purplemoon Creations is one of those stores that allows us to pick up past day gifts (still for free) and I am so thankful for that because I had missed a couple of day’s gifts that were very important in the making of my golden outfit today!

  • Day 1: Snowflake Earrings – In both gold and silver options
  • Day 2: Pearl Necklace – In both gold and silver options
  • Day 3: Solaris Dress – A sexy, curve hugging mesh dress in a beautiful gold texture.  This dress is available in mesh, fitted mesh, Maitreya, Belleza & Slink with an additional alpha layer for those that need it.

The Purplemoon Creations inworld group is 50L to join which is worth it for the advent gifts for the rest of the month alone, but additonally there is a group gift and group hunts from time to time too.  You won’t be sorry you paid the fee!
