Love Day Beauty

Cuteness
It’s finally here!  Valentine’s Day!  What, you ask, does Desi wear on this festive day of love and sexiness?  Well, she wears what she always wears…cute stuff that she finds for FREE!!!

The Group Gifts at Brillancia are absolutely terrific and, ladies, you may not have gotten roses today, but you can join this group for FREE!!! The newest gift, the Anna dress, comes in all kinds of color HUD options.  You can switch up the skirt and top and the top and lower bands to find a style you like.  I paired the dress with the Group Gift heels named Arya (also free!).  These, too, are customizable…the leather, the laces, and the heel. I looked around the store, and I really like Brillancia‘s style.  Everything sort of looks the same around the grid as fashion trends hit all the stores at once, and Brillancia has some really sweet and unique outfits that are so pretty.  The designer, Eva Chekov, is also really nice.  I had a question, and she was super helpful.  I definitely shop at stores where the designers are nice!

The Boots!

So….whether you have a date or not for the big V-Day celebrations, you can still wander around the grid looking sensational.  There are a heap of free group gifts, and you will have so much fun trying everything on and working with the HUDS to create your custom happy look!

A Raid

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have some steals I found from raiding the Marketplace to show you tonight, which are all free or cheap.

  • The boots are only 9L from Pure Posion on the Marketplace. You can’t get better boots than these! They’re amazing. What a steal!
  • Both my twisted hoop earrings and my choker are free gifts on Sweets’ Marketplace store. You will find the hoops here and the choker here. Note that the choker inclues a solids and lace version which can be resized and tinted to any colour. The hoops come in the following colour combinations: black/black, black/silver, black/gold, gold/silver, gold/gold & silver/silver. Both gifts are unrigged and modifiable, so you can resize, move and colour them.
  • Lastly, the pose I am wearing is from a pack of free poses designed for curvy women. You can get the pose pack here.

Happy Friday and have an amazing weekend, dearest readers. ❤

I Want Candy

Candy Girl

Hey gang!

It’s the last week of Cozyfest so I wanted to sneak in two more of my amazing 50L finds.  I’ve been hermiting the last day or two watching a blizzard dump snow on my rl home.  We have a good foot and a half, and its a whopping 15 degrees and still pretty windy at about 19 mph (wind chill of 3 degrees) as I write this, so I’ve just had some of the chocolate chip cookies I baked today and some hot chocolate with rum to warm up a bit.

My second life self has been enjoying some of the same, some chocolate bars and donuts on a stick for her (made me wonder how you keep the donut from falling off the stick once you have eaten a decent amount of it.  I would think it would take a tumble right off.)  Either way I’m just a gal with a sweet tooth, and I do love those candy bright colors too.  So let’s get to the goodies I found for you, neither of which have anything to do with bright colors or candy!  Huh.  Go figure!

Let’s talk about these amazing boots.  These boots are from Friday at Cozyfest, they are of course 50L and you have the option to wear them without the lights but I got them *for* the lights cause if I could just drape myself in glitter and fairylights, well.  That might be downright blissful.  They fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Now the build I am standing in is by Lemme, also 50L at Cozyfest.  This cute pink cabin comes in a lighter pink or a darker pink and is just super cozy and cute.  It was pink, so how could I say no?  Like Aline, I have a bit of a fetish for houses and buildings, a girl can just never have enough!  Add pink in that mix and well, you’ve got me doing some heavy breathing!  I chose the lighter pink one, the shade just appealed to me more, but I absolutely adore it!

Now, back to my yummy warm drink and perhaps a nibble more of the cookies!  Hope y’all are staying toasty too!

The Girl Next Door in a [Well Made] Outfit

[Well Made] Astra Outfit
I am a sucker for a nicely made outfit with parts I can choose to wear or not.  The Astra Outfit is this week’s 50L Weekly Limited selection from [Well Made].  There are actually three parts to it…the sweater, the skirt AND a warm fuzzy fleece jacket.  I chose not to wear the jacket because it covered this amazing sweater that I think is so incredibly pretty.  The HUD has many colors to mix and match to create a look that truly reflects my girl-next-door personality.

But…here is the catch.  There are a limited number of copies for this fabulous outfit, soooooo…run, run, run!  Go grab her!

This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!

All The Seasons for Witches

Coming Soon

The fall season is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show all things spooky and witchy on the blog. In fact, when I was a FabFree reader, I loved when Pru showed us all of her amazing witchy outfits throughout the year. They were deffinitely an inspiration for me. I love all things witchy, so let’s dig into some witch-themed gifts available on the grid right now!

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Following the end of Halloween at the beggining of November, I was roaming around the grid in this gorgeous green witch skin. Feeling a bit forlorn that the Halloween season was over and designing my costume for next year, I went shopping and exploring in my new green look. I thought I looked cute but you wouldn’t believe the mean comments I got from people about my bright green skin! I guess it’s just not easy being green.

The skin in question is a free gift at Wyrd and despite the bullies out there, it’s an absolutely gorgeous fantasy witch skin. It’s called “Hexed” and you can grab it in-world if you join the free group at Wyrd. It’s also available on the Marketplace for free.

Body Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and appliers for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Ebody Reborn

Head Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and Appliers for:

  • Lelutka Evolution
  • Catwa HD
  • LOGO Enhanced
  • Genus
  • Catwa

Ophelia

The awesome hairstyle I am wearing is a free gift at a new-to-me hair store called Calico. Just join their free VIP group, click the gift board, and a full fatpack of the Ophelia hairstyle will land in your inventory. She’s a beaute! ❤

Another Hunt Down

Third on today’s list are the last goodies I have to share with you all on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. The prizes shown in my witchy scene this afternoon are:

  • The dark blue horns, which are decorated with sunflowers and autumn leaves, are a prize at +Inner Mantra+ and they cost 5 Linden.
  • The frosty-toned blue lipstick I am currently wearing is another hunt prize at +Inner Mantra+, and it costs 5 linden. It comes as a BOM layer.
  • The wall piece with mirrors, greenery, and lights is a decor prize from +Inner Mantra+ that costs 5 Linden.
  • The witch’s cabinet with melting candles is the last prize from +Inner Mantra+ and you can own this pretty and witchy furniture item for only 5 Linden.
  • Finally, my adorable shoes are another hunt prize from Mosquito’s Way. These are the “Marylou” boots and they are free on the hunt.

All of the hints and photos for the hunt can be seen here. It’s been an honour to cover some of the prizes on this hunt. Thank you to the wonderful creators that contributed to this excellent event, and to Aline for organizing it! The hunt ends on November 30th, so make sure you pick up the prizes before the end of this month!

See you soon, FabFree!

Burtonesque

piccy_012 (2) (1)

What’s This?

This scene has some serious Nightmare Before Christmas vibes, with its references to the work of the artist and filmaker Tim Burton. I put my own spin on his creations though, by inserting myself in my “Vimperella” costume.  I even invited Zero (the ghost dog featured in the Nightmare Before Christmas) along for the photoshoot. Yeah, I’m still not really over Halloween and one of the reasons I always loved that film is because it allowed me to keep experiencing Halloween (my actual favourite holiday) at Christmas time when I was a child! Here’s a toast to the Nightmare Before Christmas!

Near the End

Time to get to the gifts! I’m at it again with blogging some of the prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. Today I’ll be showing you a sleek pair of boots and a full Tim Burton-themed scene including a house and other decor on the hunt.

The great pair of purple peep-toe boots I am wearing are a free hunt prize rom NoShot. I just love these boots, and they match some of my favourite outfits.  It addition, NoShot has some more prizes for women, which can be seen in their hunt key here. They also have some gifts for men that were previously blogged by Gabe here.

Sizes Included (Boots)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Burtonesque

Now here is the feature for today- almost everything you see in my “Burtonesque” scene are prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt at Kim’s Kreations. You can see them in both photo’s I’ve posted today.

Coming Soon

The prizes are:

  • A large Burtonesque-style house with cobwebs hanging off of it.
  • A striped black and white pumpkin with a white pumpkin set. (Beetlejuice, anyone?)
  •  The flat black stylized tree- another creation reminiscent of the artistic style seen in Burton’s films and artwork. This piece also includes little black and white striped bats.
  • A “witch planter” which has the legs of a witch sticking out of a pot.
  • The dancing dolls- these are creepy dolls with button eyes that spin around and dance together. They are quite magical yet scary at the same time!

Each prize costs only 1 Linden at Kim’s Kreations.

If you are having trouble finding any prizes on the hunt in the last few days, check out the hints for the prizes here.

Have fun hunting, FabFree!

Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter

Coming Soon

I have a feeling this will be my last fall-themed pic for 2021. I guess it’s time to say goodbye. Christmas is coming up so soon and I’m honestly excited for it this year! I have loved all the pumpkins and cozy fall leaves, but after this it will be time to transition to winter for me. After all, the snow literally just started falling down where I live. Although I am not a winter weather girl myself, I love all the fun that comes with the Christmas season.

You Need Some Long Skirts This Season

I love long skirts because they can be worn in the fall and winter months (as long as you’re wearing some leggings underneath). This skirt is a lot like something I would actually wear in real life during these frosty months. The adorable white and black star-patterned long skirt I am wearing is another prize on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. This is one of 4 possible hunt items to find at Blink2Wink. The other 3 prizes are the same skirt with black stars but the base colours of those skirts come in blue, red and purple. Each skirt costs only 5 Linden each.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Enjoy, FabFree!

At long last, the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt has started. This hunt celebrates a period of transition where we are still in fall, but heading into winter.

The dress includes a texture change hud that allows you to change the colours and patterns of the dress to several different options. The high boots come in black only. The item also inclues an adorable and cozy black scarf, it just couldn’t fit under my long hair. This prize includes all 3 items and it costs only 5 Linden on the hunt.
