Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m finally feeling the holiday spirit, thanks to some amazing gifts and deals. So hang on to your sleigh – we’ve got a lot to cover here!

Silver Bells

I was so thrilled when I got the notice that LeLutka was sending out their annual Spirit Tree. This year’s tree is a beauty: snowy green with big, silver decorations. And the best part is that it’s completely FREE!

Just join the LeLutka in-world group (NOT the LeLutka For Me users group) and save a copy from the notices. Or head over to the store to pick one up, if you’d rather. Lots of past group gifts are available (including FREE hair), so be sure to grab those as well, if you haven’t already done so.

The Spirit Tree is resizable with a right-click > edit > stretch. Be sure to watch your land impact, because the tree gets more “primmy” as it gets larger.

More Advent Gifts

[CIRCA] Living is hosting their 8th Annual Advent Calendar, and the gifts are really lovely!

This year’s Advent is a bit different:

  • From Dec 1 – 24, [CIRCA] will be offering a new advent item (up to 4 per day) in a numbered square.
  • This works similar to previous years except there is a new in-world group to join: [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents. It is free to join – just look for the RED group sign beside the large Advent tree on the wall.
  • You must wear your group tag (see above) to buy the contents of each square, except for the 0L surprise days. Each item will be 1L – 75L for any given day in the Advent tree. You can purchase any or all of the gifts for that day.
  • Sometimes there will be bonus squares on surprise days for an extra gift or color variation for group members, so don’t miss those.
  • On the Eve of Dec 24th, the group will be closed. Those still in the group at that time will receive the final gift on Dec 25th.

Sample items are on display in the store, and more will be displayed as the days go on. Each day’s gifts are only available for 2-3 days at a time, so don’t wait too long to check them out!

I’m showing a few [CIRCA] Advent items here (please note that not all are still available):

  • “Northern Forest” Hanging Christmas Words (over fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Holiday Garland 2a -Azure/Silver (on fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Stool – Cocoa Trees (right of fireplace)
  • “Frostine” Snowflake Gift Boxes (under tree – still available at the time of this post)

At the time of this post, days 9 – 12 are still available for purchase, including a really cute FREEBIE on day 9 (you want it, trust me).

Holiday Blues

I’m not feeling the blues, but I’m definitely wearing them! Not long ago, we welcomed I.M. Collection to the Fab Free Designer family. This made me happy because I really love their stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed, lol)!

So today I’m wearing I.M. Collection’s new gift for Fab Free group members, which includes both the dress and heels. Dress sizes include Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as a Fitmesh version. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet.

To pick up your gift, pop on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the I.M. Collection in-world store. You’ll find the Fab Free gift next to the fireplace around the corner.

P.S. If you join the I.M. Collection group for 50L, there are 12 MORE GIFTS for you to pick up, as well as one for SLF&O group members. 😀

Look at These Nails!

Look at These Nails!

Seriously, I am really loving these nails from LIVIA. And the best part is that they are a completely FREE gift for the Women Only Hunt 4.

The Snow Royale nail appliers work on Slink and Maitreya mesh hands, as well as hands that are Omega compatible, such as Vista and Tuty (Omega installer sold separately). Four different designs are included, so depending on your hands, you can wear all the same design, or different designs on each finger, as I’m doing here.

NOTE: This hunt allows decoys, and there is at least one that I found in the store. But hang in there; the “real” snowflake is not too hard to find, especially if you have the clue before you go hunting. 🙂

Snow Chains

Before I end this very long post (sorry!), I want to mention my necklace, which was an Advent calendar gift from Snowpaws. The Metal Snowflake Necklace was the gift for day 4. It is not resizeable, but you can reposition it.

Like the Advent calendars I mentioned previously HERE, Snowpaws’s calendar gifts do not expire after one day, so you can still pick up all the previous days’ gifts. There’s an interesting selection of gifts, including jewelry, accessories, and home decor items. All gifts are completely FREE, and you don’t even need to join a group! 🙂

Enjoy!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Bo Peep

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I spent a lovely afternoon on the NorderNey sim, and even made a few new friends along the way.  They graciously agreed to pose for my picture with me.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Say Yes to the Dress

My gorgeous, antique white frock is a free gift from Lomomo.   With plenty of ruffles and a bow, this dress features frothy lace over a solid sheath underneath.  A belted high waistline draws the eye upward, while the skirt cascades down in a beautifully textured layer.  I love the way the over skirt forms the shape of an inverted “V” trimmed with ribbon.  Best of all, the Lomomo group is completely free to join, so this charming dress won’t cost you a single Linden dollar!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s another view so you can get a glimpse of the front side of my new lace dress:

The Warmth of the Sun

The Warmth of the Sun

Greetings, fabulous readers! Today, I’m sharing two more free gifts from the anniversary round of Designer Circle!

This sweet, sexy top is the Designer Circle gift from MOoH! It comes with a texture-change HUD with 4 really pretty floral prints inside, and is available in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh S and L with an alpha
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Since I’m a sucker for florals, I decided to extend the motif with a floral tattoo. The Femina Tattoo is the Designer Circle gift from Pin Up, and it comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega. The tattoo also has a rose on the belly button, as well as a rose vine on the lower back.

You have until April 1st to grab the fabulous gifts at the anniversary round of Designer Circle.

Kiss Me, Baby

Pucker Up

If you are a wearer of LeLutka mesh heads, you will want to hustle over to Laura Hurley to pick up this gorgeous applier. Kay comes in the milky tone and with glittery, pink eyeshadow, high-gloss lipstick, and a light sprinkling of freckles and beauty marks. She is a really pretty face, and I love the intense lips. ❤ ❤

I am wearing Kay on my Simone 2.6 Bento head, and I did not have to mod my shape much at all to achieve a look that I liked. I did notice a teensy, shadowy line above the upper lip, which did not appear until I turned on atmospheric shaders to take this photo. It was less noticeable on my non-Bento Karin head, so perhaps my shape was the culprit. :/

The Lara Hurley group is free to join – with many lovely gifts offered throughout the year – so be sure to stop by and give Kay a try.

XOXO

My lingerie – what you can see of it – is part of the very generous Valentine’s Day group gift from Foxes. I am wearing the crop top and bottoms, but there is also an uber-sexy bra and panty set included. Both sets come in three different fabrics and are sized for Maitreya mesh bodies. A HUD is included so you can change the color of the bows and lace.

My necklace is from Amala for Fifty Linden Friday, and as of this writing, it is still available for 50L. The Scarlett Necklace comes with diamonds and a HUD with 4 metal colors included. The Deluxe HUD is also available for 50L and includes 10 additional pearl colors. NOTE: the Deluxe HUD does NOT include the necklace, so be sure you pick that one up first!

Driftin’

Heyya Fabfree

Driftin'

I don’t know about your part of the real world right now, but mine is freakin’ hot. So of course this is the time the air conditioning decides to fry itself. I need to find a cool pool and relax! If only the real life was as easy to that as Second Life.  I’d be right at home with this super cute pool floatie from Bad Unicorn. The ‘Mega Unicorn Floatie’ is one of the current Group Gifts in the main store and it was so cute I had to grab it. The floaty comes in a wearable and a rezzable version and only takes up five land impact so I have him bobbing around my pond to make me smile.

I needed a nice new swimsuit to compliment my floatie friend and Pixal Perfect has this hot little number as the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. This is the ‘July Swimsuit’ and not only do you get the cute suit, you get a HUD to change the color of the top with four choices. The suit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. The hunt runs until

Topping off my summertime cool is my new hairstyle from Mello, a ‘new to me’ designer. This is ‘detox’ and it comes with a HUD for seventeen wild and pastel colors. Detox is one of the current Group Gifts at Mello and the group is free to join!

I think I’m just gonna chill here for awhile……

Lets Play Hooky!

new713-1

Man, another Monday?  Lets all play hooky and hit the beach!  There is no better reason than this sweet, windswept hair from the geniuses at Truth.  The Essena Hair is free in the subscriber, and you get the complete fatpack.  I love the soft curls and finger combed look.

On the way to the beach, I swung into Kendrasy Creations to pick up this adorable mesh Aztec top.  It is free in store, and includes 5 mesh sizes.  The texturing is top notch,  and the mesh moves perfectly with your body.

Also on Moira is the subscriber gift from Amala.  They are giving out a beautiful 4 necklace set just for joining the subscriber list.  And the best part about subscribers? It doesn’t take up a group slot, and you get to keep up with great creators!

What is a day at the beach without a great campsite to plop down at, have a few drinks and as many nachos that will fit in your tummy?  I found this awesome wearable beach set from The Black Forest on MarketPlace for only 10L.  No need to rez, just attach, and you can plop down anywhere and have yourself a siesta.   Nothing makes the work week fly by like so many margaritas!  It is available in a few different styles, so make sure to shop the store.

Here is to a wonderful week!

Love,

Moi
