Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:

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!

Dash Away, Dash Away, Dash Away All

Snapshot_002
Good evening FabFree Readers! Before I head off for the night, I wanted to show you this adorable new group gift that Purplemoon Creations put out for their inworld VIPs.  You have recently seen some of the group advent prizes blogged on FabFree by Astrid [HERE] and myself [HERE], but now there is a holiday group gift up too.  Currently you can pick up all 25 days worth of advent gifts as well as the new group gift –  all for a one time 50L join fee!

On Comet

The jovial Comet Dress (and oops, I forgot to put on the included matching hat:/) oozes holiday spirit and is a perfect ensemble for this time of year!  The  addition of the elfy jingle bells at the waist is so cute and make this dress a real keeper in my books!

Sizes included:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ Aphla Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

And Blitzen

I picked up the Blitzen Xmas Special Socks/Mary Jane Heels that match this outfit for just 100L with my Purplemoon Creations group tag on.   You get both red and green versions with a ton of different sizes included.   I believe this is a group only offer, but don’t quote me!

Sizes included:

  • XXS – L mesh
  • XXS – L fitted mesh
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink  Physique
  • Belleza Venus

Baby Got Back… Grounds

Sometimes in Second Life, being a bogger can be a nearly impossible feat fighting the lag, and glitches that come along from time to time and it’s not every day that we can go into a beautiful sim with snow falling and mesh prettiness all around us and crank our graphics settings up.  Sometimes we are just plum stuck in the sky, but I found that Chaotic Creative is participating in The Wash Cart Sale and has a ton of different background packs, priced at just 10L per pack!  Just slap it on a prim, and you are ready to snap away!  The background I used today is one of five included in the Liraffe pack.

Hunting For My Secret Santa

Robbie Roo's Whatchamagoos - Winter Blues Men's Warmups

Shopping for the unknown…

Have you ever gotten involved in one of those Secret Santa gift exchanges at work? You get a name of someone you barely know and are expected to get fun and cheesy gifts for very little money. I found some not-so-cheesy gifts on The Feel My Sack Hunt. While MOST of the gifts on this hunt are mature in nature, I found a few that are great for anyone. All the hunt gifts are $1L each. I’m wrapping my presents in the Winter Blues Men’s Warmups from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos .

And Presents Under the Tree…

I also found some things on the hunt to accessorize with this holiday season. The Winter’s Rest Bench from Chaotic Creative has 9 positions for pondering which package to shake next. I also found the Deluxe Evergreen Gold and Green Christmas Tree by Mesh Agency.  This low land impact tree includes all the presents underneath.

Candy is Not Just for Kids…

On my wanders, I also found the Garmisch Sweater at Horr Menswear. This hunt gift is part of the Candy Cane Hunt 8 and can be grabbed for just $2L.  Ok, it’s back to wrapping presents. I wonder if they will like this dusty plant?  🙂
