Angel of the Morning

BEEP…BEEP…BEEP

 6 A.M…. Why does the alarm have to go off sooooo early? …. snooze button …  must. find. the. snooze button… ahhhh… five more minutes… zzzzzz … dog, quit licking me… just.quit.licking.me …BEEP…BEEP…BEEP…
AH CRAP!

Hypnose GG

Anything but a morning routine…

Don’t you just hate those mornings when you just can’t seem to pull yourself out of bed?  The dog all snuggled up beside you only happens when the pull of the pillows is stronger than the desire to get the day started. Instead of angering the bear sleeping next to me, I crawled out of bed and into the shower, toweled off, got dressed, started my morning coffee, took Angel out for a walk (the cute little Sish Tzu that Love found for me so I wouldn’t kidnap babysit any more of her dogs) and am now finishing my morning cup of joe before it’s time to head out to work.  Today’s outfit is a FREE group gift from Hipnose- Spazio. The NVB 40 Gift contains a shirt/jacket combo and pants. It also includes a pair of spiffy mesh shoes and comes with a cord necklace as a nice accessory. The Hypnose Group is FREE to join, so grab up those goodies.

I hand Angel her treat as I head out the door for another day’s work, still wishing I was back in bed. Is it Saturday, yet?

Bad Hair Day

BAD

That Airborne Jet Lag Feeling…

Heya gang! I’m glad to be back after my excursion into that zone called Real Life for a family event… (That place isn’t what it’s cracked up to be… js)  It was a whirlwind trip but I’m so happy to be back home surrounded by all the things I love (dog included).  And I’m glad to be back and get all pixelly with you all, playing at all the things I love, including skateboarding.  I have several group gifts to show you and and an actual purchase *gasp* to show off today, so let’s get at it. I found several group gifts at Costarlos , but chose the Andy T-Shirt as my choice today. It looks casual and fun and perfect for grabbing some air. The group is FREE to join and the board of gifts available are FREE to members.

Panting and Out of Breath…

I found out that the TopGun Aviator Sunglasses I picked up at the Cosmopolitan Advent last month is also a FREE Group Gift at A&D Clothing . This makes me so happy because I love wearing these and can adjust the lens transparency with the included HUD. This group is also FREE to join. While I was at A&D Clothing I carved over ( totally surprised they let me skateboard in the store) to the Costner Pants display and thought those would be comfortable for a day grinding on the sidewalks. The Costner Pants set me back $199L,  but I was happy to part with my lindens. They also come in other colors or can be bought as a fatpack.

Retreading it…

I’m also wearing a FREE group gift from Vale Koer. The Vasiforms with Color Change HUD, that I have previously shown [HERE], is still available and is so versatile that you will want to keep these in your footwear closet.

Hair today, Gone tomorrow….

I know you’re thinking that I must have been bursting not being able to blog for a few days (by the length of this post) and you’d be right. Before I left, my big sister Serena bullied me told me that I needed to step out of my 4 year old comfort zone and explore new hair, if not for me, then as a service to you all, the readers. She said hair has come a long way in 4 years and to embrace the mesh. Love even mentioned that my old hair looked “blocky” and “like a helmet”  (I preferred the term “chunky”). I relented and went hair shopping. My mission was to find hair that was so similar to my old hair that the ladies would have a hard time telling the difference. I achieved that goal by stopping by ARGRACE and picking up one of their many FREE Subscriber Gifts. the Minato Hair is what I was looking for when I set out to update my hair. I plan on finding similar but different hair styles in the future to get a hair rotation going (can’t let the girls have all the fun).

Poking at Bad Unicorns…

Finally, (ikr?) My skateboard and backdrop both come from the same place. By joining the group for FREE at Bad Unicorn,  you can get both the Skateboard (that comes with an AO) and the B.A.D Backdrop for FREE. Now I’m off to Top Gun with the bros and impress the hos.  Later, dudes!

Smiles on a Cloudy Day

Little by Little

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It has been a number of cold, gray, rainy days in a row where I am in RL, so I guess that influenced my selection of outfit and location for today’s blog post.  With a couple of lamps to guide our way, Ripley and I set out to explore the snowy It All Starts With a Smile sim. Rip never has to worry about getting the chills with his luxurious fur coat, and lucky for me, with my cozy knitted outfit and scarf from VIPs Creations, I stayed toasty warm all day as well!

Nothing Goes Together Like Winter and a Sweater

Unless of course it’s a knitted skirt, fleecy scarf, and a sweater!  My entire outfit today from my shawl to my shoes is a free group gift for members of the VIPs Creations group, which by the way, is free to join!  I just love it when I get a complete outfit all in one swoop!  The soft, woolen, long-sleeved sweater wrapped my arms in comfort, while its cropped waistline offered a sexy peek at my midsection.  Just so we could keep snuggly warm, the generous designer tucked a black scarf in the package to drape around our necks.  It resizes with just a touch, so you can adjust it as needed for your avatar.  A thick, knitted gray skirt which fell to just above my knees, perfectly coordinated with the hue of my top, and rounded out my outfit.  Finally, before setting out with Ripley, I slipped on the Cecilia shoes, which are also included as part of the gift.   These leather high heels are packed with details such as three buckles and delicate knotted laces.  They were the perfect footwear to shield my toes from old Jack Frost.  If you would love to capture this sweet, stylish complete outfit for yourself, head on over to VIPs Creations, join the group if you’re not a member already, then tap the gift board.  There’s also a men’s group gift up for grabs, but since Ripley already sports a fluffy winter coat, he opted out (not to mention the fact that he’s a canine!).  I can’t say I blame him….he’s pretty cute just the way he is!

What’s Included:

  • Cecilia Shoes for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya
  • Skirt in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Top in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Black Scarf

Sunny Days Ahead…. (I Hope!)

I think Ripley and I have had enough rain and gray skies to fill us up for quite some time.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you sunshine and happy shopping!

How Do You Call Your Loverboy?

Snapshot_001
Good evening FabFree Readers!  If you are in the market for a little something sexy to grab your partners attention, make sure you take a trip to Salt & Pepper to check out their most recent group gift!  There is a 150L fee to join this group, however there are several gifts available in the VIP shelves at the back of the store such as these shown my Astrid [HERE], and [HERE].

Come Here Loverboy!

Feast your eyes upon this very sexy halter neck Babydoll.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to wear sheer or opaque and change the colour between black, ivory and pink.  If you can believe it, this is actually the opaque version.  If you want to turn up the juice, although I bet you won’t need to – just flip the switch to sheer ;).

Sizes included:

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

Oh Loverboy?…

There’s more!  These Gadhra Metal Leg Wraps are also a free group gift as well and come with a HUD that allows for a few colours and metal change.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The Morning After…

snapshot3_001f

But First… Coffee

I love the holidays… but sometimes what I love most is when they’re over! This morning, I was so tired that I couldn’t handle the thought of getting dressed until I had consumed an entire pot of coffee.

And even then, I still didn’t have the energy for pants.

A Poor Attempt at Getting Dressed

So basically, all I managed to put on today was this comfy sweater from WICKED, which you can pick up for free until December 31st as part of the EnMESHed Into Christmas (EIC) Hunt. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L), as well as one for FITMESH. You’ll be looking for a little Santa hat.

Speaking of Santa hats, Christmas may be over, but you can still pick up this cute hair and hat from *ARGRACE* until December 31st. It comes with a fatpack of colors, and is set out as a free group gift (although I was able to get the gift without joining the free group… shhh). There is also a version for men, which Carson has modeled several times, most recently here.

YAWN… that’s enough work for today. I think it’s time for a nap.

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).

Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams

LRD gala suit gg 2015

Let the Festivities Begin…

I thought I’d get in one more quick post before I head out to all the fancy-schmancy parties I’ve been invited to this weekend. You know, the life of a blogger is all champagne and caviar, right? I’m going in style because when I was at LRD [Loud Rebel Design] yesterday getting jeans [HERE], I also picked up another FREE group gift. The Gala Suit is FREE to group members and comes in handy if you get a last minute invitation to a formal holiday gathering.  I’m still wearing my Xmas Owl Scarf (I think this is Love’s Patronus keeping an evil eye on me) by MoonAmore+Cureless, a FREE holiday gift at The Arcade and my FREE Satan (gotta love the typos) Santa Hat from ARGRACE .

Here’s to wishing you and yours a very merry Holiday !

Right Here Waiting

K&A Design (Cart Sale) LDR Justin Trousers FA Red Sneakers MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

“Wait here,” she says, “I’ll just be a few minutes….”

That was an hour ago and it has started to snow. But here I sit, because I was asked to.  I’m wearing a few old (previously blogged) items, because they have become some of my favorites this holiday season, and some new items I hope will become favorites. Let’s start with the old… From The Wash Cart Sale, I’m wearing the K&A Design Winter Red Sweater that I first showed [HERE]. This seems to be one of my go to items in my closet lately. It’s just $10L on the K&A Design cart. I’m also wearing the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I showed [HERE].

“Watch these bags while I check out the store over there…”

OMG! How long is this going to take… I joined the LDR  group for FREE and picked up the Justin Trousers as a FREE Group Gift.  I also joined the Full Addiction group, again for FREE,  and got the Red Sneakers as a FREE gift.

MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

This is for the birds…

Waiting here in the cold and the snow… I’ll most probably get sick before Christmas. At least I have my little owl friend to keep me company. The Xmas Owl Scarf  by MoonAmore+Cureless is a FREE gift under the Christmas tree at The ArcadeThis little guy has his wings out, but there is also a scarf with him perched safely on the scarf. Finally, -sigh-  Here she comes…  No! Don’t go in the pet store…..

American Psycho

AB Trench Coat

But when He Threatened Your Life with a Switchblade Knife…

You really don’t want to meet this guy as you’re out on a Christmas stroll. He’ll steal your purse, your shopping bags and maybe even your heart. -wink- The latest group gift from American Bazaar is this very detailed Trench Coat. You can get this for FREE by joining the American Bazaar group and picking up the gift. I matched it with the Adrian Headphones Skull Shirt I picked up at Orchid. It can be purchased for just $50L. The Scarf by Meva is one of the many group gifts at Cosmopolitan. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up all the gifts under the tree. In one of those packages at Cosmopolitan, I also found the FREE Trench Knife made by BAMSE. I finished off the look with the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I previously showed HERE.

What a Guy.

Makes You Cry…

And I Did.

Candy Cane Wishes

Snapshot_011

All I want for Christmas is You…

I took another stroll around the The Biannual Sale @ The Wash Sim and found a few more items for the guys. From the Jz for Men cart, I found the Santa’s Naughty List Shirt. It reads “All I want for Christmas is Santa’s Naughty List”. Honestly, who can disagree with that? (EDIT: A reader reminded me that this shirt and the one listed below are both available in women’s styles as well)  I matched it with the Distressed Work Jeans from the cart provided by Dark Water Designs. These jeans also come with shoes (not shown). Both these items are just $10L each.

Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker…

Another find with holiday flair from Jz for Men is the Dear Santa Shirt. This shirt describes me perfectly this year…. and again is just $10L at the Cart SaleARGRACE has a Winter group gift available until the end of the year. The Santa Hat 2016 is available for both men and women and has a color changing HUD to get that perfect hair shade. The gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.
