3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

Risqué

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! Erratic, who is known for some of the sexiest, best fitting lingerie out there has a new group gift in store for their inworld group members!  This group is 100L to join, but I would have paid much more than that for this hot item, so it was a no brainer for me, and now I can look forward to future gifts by staying in the group too!

Get Risqué

If you like the sexy bralette I am wearing today, you can teleport over to Erratic and head straight to the Risqué Luxury Lingerie section where you can pick up their new group gift that includes this very feminine and foxy, made for Maitreya top that could be worn as a sheer top or as lingerie with your favourite panties.  It fits so snug to the body, that it appears to be applied right on, but it is indeed mesh.

Get Risqué in Colour

In my photo I am showing you the noir version, but it comes in all of the colours listed below:

  • Noir
  • Crimson
  • Frost
  • Ivory
  • Lilac
  • Mint
  • Plum
  • Rose

How to get your gift…

Either activate your Erratic group tag, or click the gift sign and look for the link in local chat to join.

TIP:  If you are ever having trouble joining a group that a group gift is set to (depending on your viewer – I am on Firestorm), instead of searching around for a group join sign, you can simply right click your mouse and “edit” the group gift giver.  In the General Tab you can find which group the gift is set to.  Click on that group and join it!  This doesn’t work every time…  but most times it does :).

Burning Bridges

Snapshot_001Hey Fabulouses!   Before I head off for the night, I wanted to pop on quick and share a couple of really nice group gifts :).

May the bridges I burn light the way

Stories & Co. by Flowey has a new group gift for you that speaks a perfect message for the new year!  January is a perfect time for letting go of things that no longer make you happy, and opening yourself up to new things that might.  This “Burn January” version of the Lisbeth Tee comes in the following sizes as a free group gift with a 100L join fee.

Safe With You

westendffgroupgift

Hi there Fabulouses!  Carson (aka Muscles – rawr) was kind enough to take one for the team and snuggle up to me for a bit so I could get a snapshot to show off the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift that has been generously donated by [ west end ] .  Normally on FabFree you see us showing off free clothing or home items, but today what we are actually showing you is the pose!

About the pose…

The [ west end ] Safe With You Couples Pose is very well made with natural positioning, and is modifiable so that you can adjust the pose balls around making a good fit.  This pose would be fab for bloggers, photographers or anyone wanting to capture a cozy moment with someone special!  If you’d like a free copy of this beautiful embrace, simply adjust your Fabulously Free in SL group tag above your head and TP to [ west end ] to obtain one!

Carson’s Take

While Carson was waiting for me to make my bazillion photography adjustments to get my one and only shot, he managed to snap a few photos as well that show off different angles of the pose… evidently before I even had a chance to get my lipstick on or his vest off (and never mind why I needed his vest off….  There was interference!)!

Below is one of his photos featuring a full body shot, and if you’d like to know what Carson is wearing, you can see his credits [HERE].

The Not So Magical Blanket of Snow

Snapshot_005
Hello FabFree… Do you see the look of disdain on my face?  I am now past the “ooo look at the blanket of magical snow, it’s so white and clean” phase, and have moved onto “Grrrrrr rr rrrrr, again!?!”.  It’s so dark in the morning still and that walk needs to be shovelled!  You know that snow spray on the Frosty Returns cartoon?  If it really existed, I may invest!  Maybe someone will come up with a “Snow Roomba”!  Anyways, enough of my complaining…  Maybe Carson will come shovel for me? 😀

I do have good news to share and that should brighten my day, and hopefully yours too!

Sn@tch a Freebie

The eight lucky boards at Sn@tch are free for everyone to use, and have been recently updated with new prizes.  If your lucky letter comes up you might just win the Sacraficial Lamb set that you see me wearing today.  It includes the printed black pants and star top in system layers and Omega.  Also included is a texture change HUD for the top with several different colours.  I have added on a jacket and boots from my inventory, however if you’d like to wear them alone, cuffs for the sleeves of the shirt and pants are included.

If you happen to be snowed in too…

Snap a picture of it and enter our Snowed In Photo Challenge that ends in just a few days.  Be sure to double check the rules before entering and good luck!

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

My Holiday Happy Place

Snapshot_001Hey  FabFree!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Unlike Carson who is running around trying to do last minute Christmas shopping as he mentioned [HERE],  I ordered most of the things on my list online this year to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping centers in December, but… now I am stalking tracking numbers in hopes they all arrive on time!  I suppose ordering online does have it’s pros (being able to pick things up in the comfort of your own home), but also it’s cons (waiting for them to arrive!!).

My 80L Room

Fortunately I’m all cozy and comfortable in the sitting room that I put together with several 10L finds at The Wash Cart Sale while I wait.  My puppy is off frolicking in the snow somewhere (Serena, is he at your place again?!), but as you can see my kittycat is keeping me company just fine.  This whole scene is put together with just 80L.  I will list the items in my photo with direct TPs for easy shopping:

What I’m wearing:

You’ll have to forgive me, I know my posts have been a little longer than usual lately and that’s because I am trying to stuff so much in them – but there is just so much to talk about this month!  I also want to share with you the details of my outfit because I have some free and affordable finds ON too!

Snapshot_002

New Freebies @ Blueberry

Right around the corner at the entrance of Blueberry on the gifts wall, you will find that there is a new holiday gift priced at 0L.  Inside the gift is the pretty Mini Sweater I have on today (includes a ton of printed and solid textures) as well as the fun Unisex Antlers (also can be changed with the texture change HUD).  You don’t need to be in the group to pick this fab gift up, but… you can if you want to!

Sizes included:

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

Snuggling In My Boots

I picked up these snuggly Beth Boots fitted with socks at Aleutia’s offerings at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The best part about these boots is that they come with a texture change hud, so you can match them up with whatever you are wearing in a click!

Whew.. ok, onto my next project!  Enjoy your day 🙂

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets ;).

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

I Need A Lift!

Snapshot_002
Hey Fabulouses, I need a lift!  My car broke down in what appears to be a zombie infected area.  At least I am stranded in style, thanks to Siss Boom who put out this hot Velour Top as a new addition to their huge group gift wall.  This group does have a group fee of 500L, but you won’t be disappointed in the current group gift offerings and you’ll be able to pick up new gifts as they come along too.  You’ll find plenty of fab gifts to make up the fee in no time.

About my hot Velour Top…

The Siss Boom Velour Top in black fits like a glove to my mesh Maitreya body, but does come with an alpha layer if you need it for the system body.  I think it makes a great clubbing top, or even as a top for cool apocalyptic look.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Mesh XXS-L

What’s Normal Anyway?

What's Normal Anyway?

I’m still unpacking gifts!

I’m still unpacking gifts from the Anniversary Round of Hairology… and I’m loving all of them. I really wanted to share this one from Pr!tty called Kyla with you. It comes in an essentials pack and is a 1L gift currently at Hairology until November 3oth.

This pretty mesh hair is a pretty side-sweep and it’s hard to go wrong with that. The essential color hud includes several natural colors, a couple of ombres, and a couple of wilder colors like pink. It didn’t have my usual grey-scales, but I settled for this light blonde ombre, and was very happy with the look.

Baby got a new top on!

Elegance Boutique is great about giving out regular group gifts, and I love that the group is FREE to join, making their gifts totally FREE. You just need a spare group space to pick them up. Right now you can pick up this Mely shirt as their current group gift. I chose one of the cheeky prints to wear for my picture, but there are some more traditional choices on the color change hud that is included with the top.

What you get with the top…

  • Sizes: Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Textures: Red, Pink floral, Pink, Navy Stripes, Black, Black Cat Meow, Brown Whisker Cat, Normal People Scare Me (shown), and White Cat Meow
