Winter Wishes

Winter Wishes

I’ve often talked about how people on television seem to dress for winter in a way that is completely the antithesis of anything that you would actually wear in a cold clime.  Being Canadian, I know that these dreams of looking stylish when the mercury dips below zero are really just dreams.  Unless I’m in the mood for some very uncomfortable frostbite in questionable locations.  So, when I’m inworld, I dress like the magical winter being that I can only ever aspire to be.  Quick!  To the apres-ski!

Faux Fur

This very cozy and chic vest is perfect for layering when things get cold out.  I love that it looks all big and toasty without adding too much bulk to my frame.  To get yours, head on over to COCO, join their free group and get this vest which is the latest in a long string of amazing gifts.  There are so many lovely things to pick up here, you can pretty much get a whole wardrobe of sensible staples for completely free.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

But Boots

Boots are a thing one cannot go without in chilly climes.  I generally am in boots from November through til April, so I cannot overstate the importance.  Yes, I said April.  Anywhos, this great pair of sorta celestial themed stomper boots (in three different colours) are the latest gift from Mosquito’s Way.  You all know I love this store with an undying passion.  There are frequent gifts, and the quality is just amazing.  The group is currently 150L to join, but you’ll get a whole wall of group gifts, plus their lucky chair prizes too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis

Merry Christmas, Dear Fabulous Readers!

I am enjoying a bit of Christmas cheer, but as you well know I can hardly ever spend a day away from a good blog post.  There are so many freebies out there that even a day off would be missing out on something.  So, with this post, to everyone out there – whatever it is you celebrate, or don’t, I hope that you are happy, healthy, and surrounded by love.  Thanks for coming by our little corner of the internet – we appreciate you.

Be Unik

I know, I know…another event!  Yeps… more freebies to be had!  I headed on over to Unik, and joined their free group, then found free gifts at generally every display.  How lovely!  I also had to tp in and out a few times to make things appear, so if you can’t see anything, give it a go.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE top by Fallen Angel sized for BellX Class, BellX Curvy, Reborn, Erika, Erika Petite, Maitreya, Petite, Legacy, Perky, Legacy PP, Prima Busty, Prima Petite, Rebirth Flat, Rebirth Normal, Rebirth Petite
  • FREE purse by MyBags
  • FREE nails by Livia sized for Reborn, Kalhene, Legacy & Maitreya

Unik is running until the 28th, so don’t wait too long!

Gifts Under the Tree

Revoul is spoiling their group members with some lovely gifts under the tree at their mainstore.  This cute little bun hairstyle was my fave of the 8 presents.  Best of all, the group is currently free to join, though you should really hurry to join because it’s slated to return to full price soon!  You’ll find lots of other lovely things too, from hairbases to jewelry to a gift for the men as well.  Don’t delay!

Have a lovely lovely Christmas!

Deck the Halls!

Deck The Halls!

Christmas is creeping nearer by the moment, and I’ve been having fun decking any hall I can lay my hands on.  I’ve got lots of great gifts to share tonight, so let’s hop to it!

The Truth

It’s time for a new group gift at Truth!  I love love love when that happens, don’t you?  To get this lovely little Christmassy updo in a full fatpack of colours, with a sweet bow that you can change to a pile of different holiday hues and textures.  The Truth VIP group is 350L to join, and you’ll find this latest group waiting for you in group notices.

And Next

There’s also a new gift waiting for you in group notices of the Alaskametro group.  These super sparkly leggings are just so jolly I couldn’t help myself.  If you’re not looking for two different coloured legs, you’re in luck as well, because they come in both plain red and green as well.  You’ll find Omega and Maitreya applier versions, as well as BOM.  The Alaskametro group is 50L to join, and totally worth it.

And What About the Halls?

I did say I was decking any hall I could get my hands on, didn’t I?  Well, Raindale has been helping me with that!  All the decor you see behind me from rug, to tree to fireplace and everything in between is completely free.  You don’t even need to join a group to get these free goodies, just pay 0L and decorate to your heart’s content.  Thank you Raindale!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

Oh, Hanukkah!

Oh, Hanukkah!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Hanukkah too!  I love this celebration of light, and quite frankly, who doesn’t love fried foods?  For those of you who are celebrating starting tomorrow night, I’ve found a few little goodies to add some Chanukkah chutzpah to your SL.

Spinning Like a Dreidel

I had to do some searching for under 75L items for Hanukkah, but there are a few out there.  I put on my brainy specs and headed off to MP and did a little search, then refined it by sorting the items by lowest to highest price.  I wasn’t inundated with items, but there were a few under 75L items!

  • 75L sweater by Anthropology sized for Ebody Classic, Ebody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Petite, Legacy, Hourglass, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Venus and Physique
  • 59L frame, boxes and dreidels by Chez Moi
  • FREE Latkes by RC cluster

Also, I noted that over at Earthstones they’ve got this super sweet set of earrings (they’re dreidels and gelt) out for the Saturday Sale for just 75L.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Hanukkah, and I hope we can all work together to banish the darkness.

Red & Green

Red and Green

Red and green should never be seen, except for in the washing machine, they say.   But, I always add “and at Christmas”.  I don’t know, I’ve always felt they look pretty nice together actually.  People do like to come up with random rules, like people with red hair shouldn’t wear pink.  Pish-posh.  Wear what you like.  And especially during the Holidays!

More Shops and Hops

Shop and Hop has been open for a hot minute now, and the crowds have dwindled a bit.  It’s the perfect time to make the rounds, or cherry pick what you like from this massive event.  OR, knowing some of you out there – just unpack the stuff you’ve picked up.  However you’re doing it, it’s an event not to be missed.  Here’s what I found for free at Shop & Hop, no group join is required to get these awesome gifts:

  • FREE shorts by The Annex sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya with 3 different textures in the HUD
  • FREE ear muffs by C’est La Vie (you can also change them to green in the HUD)
  • FREE personal falling snow by GA.EG.
  • FREE hair by Vanity hair in a pack of natural colours

Shop and Hop is running until January, so you’ve still got a good swathe of time to get’er done.  You’ll find all the info, and links to every shop HERE.

And Also…

You may be wondering where my lovely sweater comes from, and I (of course) have an answer for you!  It’s the latest group gift at COCO!  This store is a must visit if you’re looking for some awesome basics to add to your wardrobe, and there are plenty of free group gifts to keep you happy.  Join the group for free, and click on the vendor, and this lovely Christmassy sweater is all yours.

Better Be Good

Merry Christmas Santa

More Christmas cuteness!!!  I love it when you can get such good quality for free or next to free, for example you can pick up this amazingly precious hair from No Match as a group gift and it only costs 50L to join the group.  Then there is the dress and I am obsessed…so many cute prints to choose from!!  It’s from Blueberry and I pickeded it up at their Holiday Shop & Hop booth, it was only 125L for the fatpack however I was able to purchase it using some of the 300L store credit also available (requires joining Blueberry group).

The adorable coffee cup is a free Holiday Shop & Hop gift from Bubble.

Make sure you take some time to check out the Holiday Shop & Hop, see the shopping guide here.

Snow Day

Snow Day

It was snowing in RL so I was inspired to create a snow day post.

I absolutely love this mini dress (or top) a group gift from Asteria, the details are amazing and it comes in 10 colors with options for the belt as well.  I added leggings since I just couldn’t imagine myself standing in the snow in a mini dress LOL.  The super cute boots are from Meva, one of their past Happy Weekend Items and it’s still only 60L.

Salesbuster

Coming Soon

Get on those Black Friday deals, FabFree! The sales are going on all weekend. Have you checked out the FabFree Black Friday Sale Listing yet? It’s amazing! Props to Aline for putting that list together… I’m about to go through and check them out! I did dip into some of my favourite stores’ sales already though and wanted to share some insight on what they have going on this weekend…

Doorbuster!

Today I am showing a Black Friday offering from Blueberry. Blueberry is having a 50% off sale at their mainstore and on their Marketplace store through the end of Cyber Monday. Even better, Blueberry has a “Doorbuster” deal out for the occasion. The deal is a winter edition pack of their Poppy Leggings on sale for only 75L for Black Friday weekend only. The leggings include 24 new winter patterns and some classic colours are also included. The leggings have been updated for a variety of bodies, and I believe the leggings will work with other huds in the past made for these leggings. For the Blueberry addicts out there, you know what I’m talking about. 😉 They’re awesome!

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass
  • Reborn
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • GenX Classic & Curvy

Viviana

FAGA reopened this weekend, and they have even more new group gifts available. Their group is temporarily free to join. The hairstyle I am wearing is called Viviana in an exclusive pack, one of the brand new group gifts. Aline blogged all about their free group join and their other group gifts here, so make sure you check out her awesome post.

Have a great night, FabFree!

Feelin’ Myself

Feelin' Myself

I’m feeling myself tonight with some long tresses.  Are you in the mood for some free hair?  How about a bunch of free hair?  You know you are!

Long Tresses

This set of lovely long braids is coming at you courtesy of FAGA.  There are plenty of great group gifts over at this hair shop, and I’ve got some great news.  The group is currently free to join!  It’s usually 350L, so get in now while it’s free and pick up all the goodies.  Just look under each display for the little grey signs that say VIP gift on them.  A shoutout to Ms. Emma for letting me know the group is free again!

Have fun with your new hurrrr….
