Shopping Spree!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have another limited- time gift card annoucement, so I’ll get to it so you can grab the offer ASAP! This gift gives you a chance to go on a HUGE shopping spree at one of my favourite stores.

A 2,500 L Holiday Treat

I blogged about how Ari-Pari‘s advent calendar is delayed previously here. You may remember that they will be setting out their advent gifts later so keep an eye out for those in the future. On top of this, Ari-Pari has set out a 2,500 L gift card for their group members. That’s two-thousand, five-hundred lindens worth of store purchases! You need to be in the Ari-Pari group to get the offer, which only costs 25L to join.

Ari-Pari is known for their generosity and this holiday season is no exception. As many of their products are so affordable, you can purchase a lot of items with the gift card! I am sporting the Winter Forest Outfit, which is available at Winter Wonderland at Malus Park until December 31st. The set includes includes a cozy sweater and jeans, and you can change the patterns and textures of each piece to several different colour options via a HUD. This outfit costs 250L, leaving lots of room to purchase more! You can also use the giftcard on most items at the Ari-Pari mainstore. As far as I know, the gift card does not expire. I’m not sure how long this offer is available, so go, go, go!

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Ebody Curvy

Enjoy, FabFree!

My Christmas Sanctuary

I made a little holiday retreat for myself! I set up and decorated my little log skybox with Christmas decor. I am going to hole up in here for a bit, enjoy some hot chocolate, and dance to the latest Christmas playlist I put together on Spotify. This is my adorable little sanctuary for the Christmas season! After my me time, I’ll go out shopping tomorrow and collect all the Christmas goodies! 🎄

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Free Credits from EscalateD

This holiday season, EscalateD is gifting out a bunch of store credits! First off you can head over to their Shop & Hop booth and pick up 350L in store credits. These are free for everyone and no group is required. On top of this, at their main store you can grab an additional 500L in store credit if you are an EscalateD VIP member. Their group costs 99L to join, and this is an extremely generous group!

Sending Healing

Sending Healing

Hey FabFree! I apologize for not being here in the last week… I have had a number of issues in my real life to attend to which have made life extremely difficult lately. I am trying my best to be back. I won’t get into the details, but sometimes the holidays are hard and we have to focus on being kind to one another this time of year.

Advent @ Ari-Pari

It’s time to feature another advent calendar! The dress I am wearing is an advent gift by Ari-Pari. Their calendar is available for group members only, and their group currently costs 25 Linden to join. Three wonderful gifts are out on the calendar right now and the rest will be added at a later point, likely after advent season is over. The creator is currently having health problems which are preventing her from coming online. Let’s wish Ariana healing and I know I am praying for her recovery. Ariana is one of the kindest and most talented creators I know. I’m sending her healing! Get better soon Ariana! ❤

The Jolliest Season

The Jolliest Season

Hey Fab Fam! I am up to my ears in Christmas this week… and I LOVE it! Especially when the whole SIM is all Christmas all the time! Like the Christmas Wonderland. Now Ms Aline told you about all of the great gifts and freebies… But did she mention all the fun rides? The SIM is set up with a bunch of Christmas themed carnival rides and booths as well as shopping! I had a blast riding reindeer and the Ferris wheel. Too much fun!

Now I’m home and opening all the great gifts… and maybe trying to figure out what’s in some of those boxes Gabe put under the tree…..  But anyway, my new Santa Hat and cozy sweater top is a Christmas special at Christmas Wonderland from Ari – Pari.  It’s just 5L for the set! You get a HUD to pick four colors of the top and the hat. If you can’t quit see… the top says “Tis the Season to be Jolly!”

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My super sized toasty warm new scarf is a free gift from Merge at the Christmas Wonderland. This is the “Vera Oversized Scarf” and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You’ll get a HUD for four colors and a HUD to resize.

The Christmas Wonderland runs until Dec. 31st but you’ll certainly want to go soon and have some old fashion Christmas Carnival fun’

Sleigh Ride

I’m so happy Christmas time is upon us! I can’t get enough of snuggly sweaters and cozy boots! I started making my list of things I want to hunt down and collect and this cute comfy sweater made the top of my list!

This is the “Holiday Reindeer Sweater” from Ari – Pari. You can go grab it too for just one little Linden and a little bit of hunting.  If the red dancing deer aren’t your favorite, the HUD included will let you choose one of eight colors.  Holiday Reindeer is the prize for the Candy Christmas Hunt going on now until Dec 31st. So while you have plenty of time to hunt, why would you wait? Go grab this gorgeous Holiday treat and get your festive-ness on!

Breathe in the Fall Air

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I am currently drowning in work but I wanted to pop in to say hello as I went for a quick breather outside to get some air. Like Aline here, I’m still enjoying the fall air while I still can. 

I have some great prizes from the on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt to show off today, as well as another great gift from the other side of the grid.

  • My cozy sweater and pants are the gift on our hunt at Ari-Pari. As you know, I love Ari-Pari and I love to show their stunning items to you. This top and pants comes in several autumn colours that you can mix and match using a colour changer HUD. This outfit is sized for Physique, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Freya, Venus & Isis, and it costs only 1L on the hunt. 
  • The gorgeous eyes are the prize at lovelysweet. These are simply gorgeous. They come in 8 eye colours, and there is a little fall leaf in place of the pupil. These eyes include appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Omega, and they can also be worn with Bakes on Mesh (BOM) eyes. These cost only 5 Linden on the hunt.  lovelysweet will be closing their doors at the end of the month, so make sure that you visit their mainstore and grab all the gifts and everything you need before they close. Their shop will be available on the Marketplace, but they are formally closing their in-world store on November 30th. 
  • Finally, my pretty little updo hairstyle is a 1L gift at Magika. The Magika group is currently free to join. This hairstyle comes in a full fatpack of colours. 

See you later, FabFree!

Catch that Turkey!

Coming Soon

It’s the month of celebrations for American Thanksgiving! As a Canadian, I already had Thanksgiving back in October and I don’t completely understand the American holiday, but from what I know it’s a big deal in the US! To me, it sounds like a fun celebration of food and giving thanks to family and all the things in life we need to reflect on and appreciate. I love American culture and my American friends on SL, so I’ll take part in some of the fun this month. 

Hunt that Turkey!

It’s time to hunt for the Turkey on the Jerky Turkey Hunt! This is a grid-wide hunt run by Evil Bunny Hunts, with the prizes costing only 1 Linden each. For more details, click this link here to get all the previews of the prizes and the hints. You gotta love these hunts every season. I am wearing the cute Silvia outfit by Ari-Pari, and it includes a cropped cardigan and high-waist pants with a colour change hud that allows you to change the textures of the top and pants. 

Sizes Included 

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Kupra

7 Deadly S[K]ins is moving groups, and it’s free!

Perhaps my favourite group of all time, 7 Deadly S[K]ins, is changing their group over to a new group and it is temporarily free to join. I’m not exactly sure for how long this promo is on, but they have other offers when you join the group, which are all detailed in the notecard attached to the notices of the group. There are a lot of details in that notecard so make sure you read it! Today I am showing the free group gift for November, which is set to the new free group. This skin is designed for Lelutka EvoX. The camping chairs, boards, and gifts are all set to the new group so now is the perfect time to get in. 

Here is the group join code you can use to get into the group:
