Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge¬†tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). ūüėõ

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and¬†SLink¬†Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar¬†(not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! ūüôā

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for¬†this cozy little spot was¬†the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.¬† Don’t blame me if you¬†get distracted and¬†pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!¬† Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see¬†to the right of the fireplace is a free advent¬† prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t¬†forget¬†your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…¬† This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.
Snapshot_003
There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog¬†Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.¬† If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony¬†hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.¬† I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize. ¬†Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously¬†Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer¬†secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws¬†as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose¬†from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the¬†party¬†(lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

It’s Womenstuff Time

Snapshot_003
Hey there FabFree Readers! The Womenstuff Hunt is back on again through the duration of August, and Purplemoon Creations has a flavourful and exotic hunt prize for you!  All you need to do to obtain a free copy of your very own Lyuba Skirt as I am displaying today, is locate the hidden red t-shirt hunt icon at the Purplemoon Creations store.

The Lyuba Skirt (which is the hunt prize!) comes with a texture change hud that allows for six skirt / scarf colours as well as an option to add or remove the scarf.  The sizes included are XXS-L mesh, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

The Ariel Shell Bra that I have chosen to wear with my new skirt is by Candydoll and is part of the Ariel Gacha Set that you can play for (75L per play) at The Epiphany Event, but I am sure there are tons of cute tops that would fit the bill Рpossibly already in your inventory!

In fact… I’m curious which top¬†YOU decide to wear with your Lyuba Skirt!¬† Pop a picture into our flickr pool and show off¬†your style¬†:).¬† Everyone is welcome – blogger or not!

ps.  Make sure you check out the group gift that is available at Purplemoon Creations while you are there hunting down that little t-shirt.  Astrid was awesome enough to show it off recently [HERE]!

Color Crazy

Heyya FabFree! It’s Friday at last!!! *does happy dance*

Color Crazy

So, I’ve gone from monochrome black and white to crazy colors today! It just goes to show you that you can find everything right here at the Bi Annual¬† Cart Sale at the Wash. I jumped a few Carts down to the Savoha Cart to find my super cute overalls and shoes. These are the ‘Rainbow Overalls’ and the ‘Bolly’ shoes. The overalls comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and have a good alpha layer. The¬†sleeveless tee is part of the complete outfit for ease of dressing. I just love the¬†happy colors!

My shoes are also from the Savoha Cart. These are the ‘Bolly Flats’ and for your 10L you get three color variations: blue, pink and purple. The shoes are for the System foot and come with a shoe base.

Believe it or not, we only have five more days to shop the Cart Sale, so don’t delay! The July 6th deadline is coming up quick!

Summer Chill

Good Evenin’, FabFree-ers!

Summer Chill

I’m still catching up with my blogging and shopping after the “Great Interwebs Implosion of 2016” and thank heavens for the Bi Annual Cart Sale at The Wash! Everything I could possibly ask for … all in one spot! For example, I found this great outfit on the Aleutia Cart tonight. This is “Summer Chill” and it comes in four summery watercolor shades as well as the monochrome I’m showing off here.¬† I love the soft look of the light sweater over a short skirt for those late summer evenings.¬† Summer Chill comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.¬† The build for this simple outfit is simply wonderful and is worth so much more than the ten little lindens for the Cart Sale.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at The Wash runs until July 6 so come down and get your shopping on!

Bluebell

Happy Monday, FabFree!

Bluebell

I guess I could have called this post Blue Monday or Monday blues… but in a good way! My “blues” are curtesy of the Nerdy Girl Cart at the Bi Annual Wash cart Sale¬†today. My gorgeous blue dress is the “Beach Dress” in Blue Ocean. This cute dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The Beach Dress comes in three ‘wave’ colors, a cloud white, denim and a super cute nautical print. All for just 10L each!¬† Even my cute “Flower Sandals” are from the Nerdy Girl Cart. The sandals¬†come in five colors ( each sold separately) and with a¬†rigged version for SLink flat feet and an unrigged version as well.

I’ve even got a great new blue hairstyle today from Analog Dog. This is ‘Kanpai’ and not only does it come in blue… it comes in pink and¬†auburn and blonde and… well, every color Analog Dog makes! Analog Dog has set out the full free¬†fatpack of Kanpai as part of the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebration at Hairology.¬† There’s a ton of gorgeous free hairstyles to be had at Hairology this round as well as deep discounts on some of the best styles for the best designers! Just look for the layer cake at many of the booths and have a slice.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash runs until July 6th while Hairology runs until June 30th so don’t delay.
