In Bloom

Hey there FabFree!  I hope you are enjoying the start of your weekend.  I just wanted to stop by real quick and show you a pair of floral denim jeans that you simply MUST have in your inventory (no.Carson…  not you).

When your last linden is burning a hole in your pocket, you’ll need new jeans!

These Tasha Skinny Jeans are available in the [NOHO] marketplace store for one tiny little linden (1L) (update:  now at 10L).  These low-rise cuffed staples are a faded medium blue and are wrinkled in all the right places.  They feature sweet floral embellishments all over to give you a little taste of spring, which is on the way – I’m sure of it.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza

Beguiled by Argyle

SnatchminaGood afternoon Fabulous Readers!  Today I am bringing you news about a couple of really fabulous free items that I was really excited to come across.  One item is the super cute long hair by MINA Hair and the other is the adorable argyle sweater dress by Sn@tch.

Taking It From The Top

I’m not quite sure where to start because I am so giddy about both items, so let’s just start at the top with the Luna Hairstyle that is available as a free group gift at MINA Hair.  This playful style includes a hairstylist HUD that allows you to tuck your hair behind your shoulders and also remove the bangs and side hair, making it compatible with whatever you might be wearing with it.  Blonde and Essential colour packs are available in this gift so you’ll have plenty of options for shades.  This group has a 200L join fee, and you can find this group gift at the entrance of the store, but if you venture in just a little further, you’ll find a wall full of previous group gift hairstyles as well!

Sn@tching Up That Argyle Style

There is some pretty exciting news at Sn@tch!  Ivey Dechanel has updated ALL of the lucky boards with new FREE prizes and they are awesome!  One of them is the Wilora Argyle Sweater Dress I’m all bundled up in – AND…  it includes a texture change HUD with a ton of colour options.  It fits like a glove to the mesh bodies listed below and also comes in regular mesh sizes and an alpha for those still on the system body…  so everyone can enjoy it!  These are not group boards, so you can just give it a little slap when your letter comes up!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

I’m in the Mood for Blueberries and Cherry Blossoms

Fox in the Snow

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share a free group gift and another budget-friendly hunt prize with you.  They pair together well to create a simple, casual, and very comfortable outfit.

Adorned With Twin Bows

First, my adorable long sleeved top from Blueberry features a pair of texture change laces that add a whimsical touch.  You can opt to coordinate them with one of the 35 color choices for the top, or select a contrasting option.  You can even adjust the metal of the eyelets, too.  With so many hues available, this top is sure to become a wardrobe favorite of mine!  To pick up this free group gift for yourself, all you need to do is head over to the shop, activate the Blueberry Store Group tag (20L join fee) and tap the vendor.  With other gifts available for members, your 20L investment will be well worth while.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Cozy Leggings

A prize in the Dear Santa Hunt, I picked up my crimson leggings at Cherry’s Blossom for just one Linden dollar.  They hugged my every curve and fit my Maitreya mesh body beautifully.  An all-over muted pattern provided visual interest, and the fabric had a slight sheen to it.  I could see wearing these under a sweater dress for extra warmth on a winter day.  To add the Cozy Leggings to your inventory, search the shop until you locate the hunt object, which is a letter to Santa.  After that, it’s just a matter of paying the teensy fee, and then scurrying home to open up the box.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a good start.  I don’t know about you, but I am counting the days until my holiday break.  I’m looking forward to having some extra time to spend relaxing with my family, and of course, looking for more Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Merry Christmas Darling

Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

Settled In For A Long Winters Nap

POErOrOIt’s a good thing I ate my wheaties this morning…

Because I had to wrestle him for the TV remote tonight.  I was in the mood to settle in the best spot on the sofa and watch some animated Christmas specials.  They are all over the guide listing this month and I’m happy about that :).  The only problem is that I can’t make up my mind which one to watch, because I love so many of them and there are only three weeks left to watch them all.

Love’s Ultimate Favourite Top 5 Animated Christmas Specials (mostly in no particular order):

  1. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
  3. Frosty The Snowman
  4. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
  5. Santa Clause Is Comin To Town

Of course this list is just the cartoons…  How will I ever find time to fit in all of the Christmas themed movies too?  *Sinks into the sofa with a smile*.  He might as well kiss Supergirl goodbye because he won’t see this remote until January!  What are your favourites?

Cozy Apparel

You can find this super cute long cardigan with top at @rOrO FREE for the Peace on Earth Hunt!  I paired it up with  some comfy flared jeans by Aphorism available now as a new release at this round of FaMESHed and braided my hair all cute on a budget thanks to Wasabi Pills at The Arcade!  I was lucky enough to get the blonde pack on my first pull of 75L.  That sure doesn’t happen often.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

The Cold Never Bothered me Anyway

It has recently come to my attention that I often venture out into winter conditions in SL wearing the least practical thing possible.  But you know what I say to that?  I say I can’t catch pneumonia in SL, so I’ll wear whatever I want in cold weather! So there!

If you are also unafraid of hypothermia, then read on and find out how to get this striking gown from Scandalize at FaMESHed for free!

Shiver

The gorgeous Loan gown by Scandalize is sexy and striking all at the same time.  The greatest thing about it is that it comes in a full fatpack of colours, as well as loads of different ombré combinations.  Additionally, the top and skirt are separate so you can mix and match with other items in your inventory.  Basically, you can never run out of options for this dress!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Sparkle On

I also picked up a free gift from !Aphorism! at FaMESHed that is a pretty little trinket you can wear to all your holiday parties and beyond.  The Antique Bracelet is a delicate chain with a heart locket on the end that you really won’t want to take off.  Here’s a close up of the bracelet for your viewing pleasure!

The Cold Doesn't Bother Me Anyway 2
Nip over to FaMESHed and check what’s under the tree for you!  This round runs until December 27th.  I’d better go find a blanket before I shiver myself into the next sim!

A Date With Destiny

WellmadeAphorism
Hey there FabFree Readers!  I am just taking some time to myself to enjoy some oldie but goodies on vinyl.  It makes me so sad to think back about when I was a kid and used to make roads out of the records lined up on the ground for my little brother to drive his trucks on.  So many a scratched record happened, and many albums didn’t survive but there are some good memories attached to playing trucks with my brother…. and yes..  there were Barbies in those trucks.  It was the only way I would play!

Rompers are all the rage!

If you haven’t noticed on the feeds already…  rompers are a big deal this season and I was glad to have come by this poppy printed jumpsuit as a free group gift at [Wellmade].  The Destiny Jumpsuit also includes a texture change HUD that allows for a pastel floral print as well.  This group is free to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up!

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
