Weekend Off Duty

I’ve spent the weekend and most of the beginning of the week off duty and in my undisclosed location again. However, all the way out here word got to me about LIVIA‘s free group gift I had to jump on a train, boat, and airplane to get to the shop before it ran out!

The Lauren Hoops are a pair of timeless earrings that come with a hud with 8 metal options, resizer, and the ability to turn materials on and off. Not too shabby for a free pair of earrings, the better part is the group is free to get them. So it is only costing you time that’s going by too fast by you reading this! Stop reading, take the next train to LIVIA, and go snag those earrings!

Salon Time

After months of being cooped up I’ve decided its time to chop it all off, and by chop it off I mean just a trim 😉 Between the hot summer and the months of distancing, I’ve been slacking on taking care of it. Like many others, it goes up in a messy bun and I’m ready for the day.

Caboodle has these adorable lucky letter boards that rotate gifts after a winner claims their gift =) I was able to snag this adorable outfit for free, granted their Lucky Letter Boards are set to the group, which is a cost of L$100. The Raven outfit comes in a very lovely silver/gray the top and bottoms are separate so you can wear your favorite piece with other Caboodle items.

Raven Outfit Fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

++Twilight++ has a super cute Cellphone out for their Stay at Home Group Gift! It’s completely free to get and it comes with two versions, one holdable and the other decor, both have a browser ability so you can pull up some cool sites while in the game. So run by their shop and snag this amazing gift, the quality of the item is amazing and thank you to the creator for giving this away free!!

FabFree: The socks are staying on

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and if you aren’t celebrating Christmas, I still wish you a happy eve! Today in my blog post I am featuring news about a free instore group credit at Kaithleen’s (and I’ll tell you about what I picked up), as well as some adorable free holiday socks by Caboodle!

It’s on Kaithleen!

Kaithleen’s has put out a really generous holiday gift for her inworld group members!  VIPs (and it’s only 50L to join if you are not currently a member!) can head to the reception desk and click the credit sign that will load you up with a gift card worth 300L!  You can use it on purchases in the store, or at events!  I picked up the Franzy Bodysuit at Winter Spirit that was priced well under the 300L limit and I still have a fair balance left on the card for future purchases 🙂

I’m not kidding.. the socks stay on

For real…  If I had socks like this in real life, they would stay on, and I mean throughout everything because don’t they look so snuggly and warm and totally adorable too? How could I take them off?   You can pick these Holiday Edition Ballerina Socks as a free gift at the Caboodle Display at Shop & Hop until January 6th.

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’ve got a quick group gift from Caboodle to share with you for this post. Really, this loose-fitting crop top by Caboodle is just too cute to not share. It comes in a few sizes, and includes a texture change hud that lets you change the color/texture of the top and the sleeves. I love the shiny almost holographic choices, and there is a super cute illustration done by an associate of the Caboodle clothing designer.

Caboodle - Valerie Crop Top - Group GiftTo get your copy of this cool top you’ll need to go to Caboodle and join the in-world group. The group has a join fee of 100 linden and this time. There are several group gifts currently available. This gift and the others are all waiting for behind the desk at the entrance.

Holographic Honey

Holography Honey

I’ve had conversations with people about the awesomeness that is holographic clothing.  I’ve probably expounded my beliefs several times here on the blog about it all, and I’m sure you’re all sick to death of me singing the praises of anything vaguely reflective and purpleish.  I just get all the vibes of magic, the seaside and the 80’s all wrapped into one awesome little package, and since those are three of my favourite things, I don’t see how it could possibly be a bad thing.

A Little Taste of Magic

Caboodle have just put up a really sweet gift on Marketplace for just 1L.  You get this beautiful holographic dress that slips ever so sultrily off the shoulders.  It also features an A-Line skirt, which you may have guessed I approve of heartily because of the name.  Well, and the shape is pretty awesome too.  To get yours, just head over to Caboodle’s Marketplace store and it will be yours!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

This Way

Mosquito’s Way are at it again with a cute pair of shoes for FREE!  These adorable purple booties are yet another knock-it-out-of-the-park monthly group gift.  They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.  To get yours, just join the Mosquito’s Way inworld group for FREE, and they’ll be yours for the taking!

You really can’t say no to purple, amirite?

The Perennial Maximalist

The Perennial Maximalist

Everyone always talks about simplicity.  I am a proponent of this on certain days, to be sure,  however sometimes what one needs to be is a maximalist.   There’s nothing wrong with surrounding yourself with your favourite things.  I like a good overflowing collection of pretty baubles, or being surrounded by all the glitter and gorgeousness I can muster.   You know, like a deep pile rug and vases full of marabou feathers and just one more lip gloss.  The aging, weathered glamour calls out to me sometimes, or perhaps it’s just a little pvc skirt and a new hairstyle!

Smug as Can Be

Mug has a new group gift out!  This extremely mini PVC skirt is slightly insane in all the right ways.  You can make it into the perfect weird outfit with just a bit of imagination.  You’ll most probably need a little layer underneath though if you’re planning on not shocking the neighbours.  To get your own little skirt, just join the Mug group for 250L and head on over to the shop and click on the vendor.  There are a bunch of other gifts there while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Sking

Nothing But the Truth

Time for a new VIP gift from Truth!  Horizon is a long messy ponytail with several different bang options.  You can add or remove the bobby pins too to make this look all your own.  And as always with Truth VIP hairstyles, it’s a full fatpack of colours!  You can get yours by joining the Truth VIP group for 350L and then taking a peek in group notices for your copy!

Here’s to maximalism!

Cinnamon Candy

Cinnamon Candy

I know I’m a bit late for the Lunar New Year but I just stumbled across this great little Hunt going on at the shops of Solara. This is a fun little hunt you can do in one sitting but you’ll still bag some great loot. So let’s celebrate the Lunar New Year Hunt!

Red Hot Cinnamon Candy

Remember those? With today being Valentines Day, you might have had few of ’em already. And I feel like a ‘Red Hot’ in this sweet red outfit. I put this look together from two different prize gifts from Caboodle: the holo-rific Cassi Tee and the Jarhly Jog set pants. The Cassi tee comes in shades of holo glimmer Purple, Lemon-Lime, Mermaid Blue and the Rose Gold I’m wearing. The pants are from a two piece set: The Jarhly Jog set which is super cute on it’s own.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Lunar New Year Hunt at Solara only runs until February 19th so don’t delay.

Holographically Happy

Holographically Happy

I’ve probably talked about the importance of all things holographic a million times.  I do have a penchant for things with a pretty pearlescent sheen, and the purveyor of all great things holo-cute in SL is without a doubt Caboodle.  Guess what….you can grab some holo awesomeness for FREE!  Eep!

Happy New Year!

First things first, let me wish a happy Lunar New Year to all those out there celebrating!  I hope that the new year brings much luck and joy (and little red envelopes!) to you all.  To celebrate, Caboodle and all the other stores on sim are hosting a really fun mini hunt!  Just head on over and find the little red envelopes (you can read the clues HERE) and buy for 0L.  I got some really cute stuff, but because I’m so into holographic prettiness, I decided to show you this cute off the shoulder dress.  And yup, it’s FREE!  Don’t delay, this hunt runs until February 19th!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Happy Lunar New Year!

Aline and the Holograms

Aline and the Holograms

I’m sorry…did someone say HOLOGRAPHIC?  Because I am all about anything that shimmers, shines and even bears a passing resemblance to the love of my life in the 80’s – Jem and the Holograms.  You heard me, I’m all about the big hair, the massive earrings and anyone whose name is Jerrica.  That’s like Jessica, but with R’s!  Come on now, how can you say no to that?  Ok fine, maybe it needs a little toning down, but….really, only just a little!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Have you heard the buzz around the SL Frees and Offers 1st Annual hunt?  It’s big folks, and there are lots of fab designers participating, and loads of prizes to get your mitts on!  I’m showing off the really awesome holographic sweater by Caboodle (purveyors of all things shiny).  Just head on over to their store, and look around for the fall leaf that is hiding somewhere in the store.  The sweater inside is completely free, has three different colour options, and comes sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya bodies.

While on the hunt, I also came across these fantastic shoes by Ch’s (also completely FREE!).  I love the buttons up the side.  Very military-inspired and completely and utterly adorable.  I love them.  There’s an HUD included with a boatload of colour options, and they come sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Good luck!

Ain’t That the Truth

Here comes the next offering from Truth!  This month’s group gift is a really lovely and undone braid called Ciara.  Very sweet and soft.  If braids aren’t your thing, the stylist HUD has the option of turning it into a messy bun.  I do love a good stylist HUD!  As always, the Truth VIP hairstyle comes with a whole fatpack of colours.  If you haven’t joined yet, it’s 350 L, which is extremely reasonable, and SUCH a good deal.  Join the group and check in notices to pick up your own copy!

Until next time!

A place in the sun

A place in the sun

Pretty sunshine and a cute outfit…I mean, it’s not the beach but it’s still pretty great!

The whole kit and Caboodle

Caboodle’s store name always makes me think of that saying. I’m not really going anywhere with that…it just does. ANYWAY, this super cute top is the newest free group gift from Caboodle. It’s seriously sooooo adorable. It’s cropped just perfect and the texture is fab and the little flowers along the bottom are just the right finishing touch. This shirt comes sized just for Maitreya and Hourglass, and with a HUD that lets you change the color of the flowers, the trim, and the shirt itself independently. There are a bunch of pretty pastel shades and some of them have a really cool metallic kind of sheen to them. Caboodle is 50L to join and there’s a wall of really well done group gifts available behind the desk when you enter the store.

I’m an Urban Farmer

I don’t even know what that means, but it’s the name of these great pants that I’m wearing. My subtitles are really lacking tonight. The pants that I’m referring to are a free group gift from Loordes of London and the group is free to join. I popped over to grab the FabFree group gift sandals (which I’m not wearing) and came away with so much more. It’s the story of my SLife, but at least they were free in this case! I just love the cute style and it comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

 

Oh one last thing – my pose is technically a freebie as well. It’s by IOS but it’s the unpack pose from Euphoric and you can get it for free by going and grabbing the group gifts that Aline posted about here the other day. I’m such a pose hoarder, surely I’m not the only one who saves and uses cute unpack poses? Or maybe I am. Don’t answer that.
