Christmas Cheer

Holiday Cheer

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been full of holiday cheer thus far. I managed to find a moment to myself, and took a moment to enjoy some crisp winter air and a spiked eggnog, in a reindeer cup no less. Despite the cold, my drink and my sweater kept me warm, and my holiday manicure kept me feelin’ cute in the moment. Each of those items, sweater, drink, and nail polish are all current group or event gifts. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about them, or you can scroll to the end for full credits. Stay warm Fab Free!

Fashionably Dead 

This cute holiday sweater is the most recent group gift at Fashionably Dead. There are a few past group gifts available as well. The sweater comes in a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 7 color choices. The Fashionably Dead group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Half+Deer

My adorable reindeer cup is the free gift at Shop & Hop by Half+Deer. It has sparkly antlers, and comes with multiple color options. Also, the cup has a drinking animation. I love the cute details. All you need to do to get yours is go to the Half+Deer booth at the Shop & Hop event and click the gift vendor.

ZOZ 

Finally, I love the choice of a holiday manicure that isn’t green or red. My shiny dark grey snowflake manicure is thanks to the free Shop & Hop gift by ZOZ. This applier manicure set has 12 total beautifully glossy colors to choose from, including the traditional green, and red. Like the other Shop & Hop gifts, to get your copy of this free gift just find the ZOZ booth at the event and click the gift vendor.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, ZOZ

Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Not a Creature Was Stirring...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; or an adorable puppy. I’ve been enjoying all the Christmas things this year, and the latest group gift at JIAN is among my favorites. The side table complete with cocoa, cookies, and not one, not two, but three adorable puppies is just more than I can resist. It also goes quite well with the Reindeer Games Hunt prize at Park Place. I love the details of this arm chair with the holiday pillow and draped blanket. It looks like the perfect spot to curl up for a long winter nap. For more info about each of these fantastic finds keep reading. As always, there is a full list of credits and links at the end. Happy Holidays!

JIAN

As I mentioned above, this side table with the cookies and cocoa, candle, books, glasses, and even the sweet sleeping puppies is a free group gift at JIAN. This gift is highly detailed and has a touch menu that lets you pick from different textures for the puppies, colors for the blanket they are snuggled up on, and change the lighting effect of the candle. The JIAN group also happens to be free to join at this time.

Park Place

Park Place is participating in the Reindeer Games Hunt happening now. The RGH is a dollarbie hunt with a twist. If you don’t feel like hunting, no problem! The hunt prize is also for sale along side the hunt poster at the participating store for 25 linden. Otherwise, if you’re up for the challenge you can hunt the prize and pay just 1 linden for it once you’ve found it. The prize at Park Place is this nicely crafted arm chair. It includes several male and female sit poses, along with several PG couples poses. Don’t miss this great dollarbie, the hunt ends December 31st.

Hint “Think I’ll just sit at my desk and finish my letter to Santa.”

Christmas at the Beach

Christmas at the Beach

You know you’re in for an amazing time when BAE says “Put away the sweaters, pack your bag, and don’t forget the sunscreen.” If anything could make me give up on wanting a traditional snowy Christmas, it would be the chance to trade the shimmery white snow for sparkling white sandy beaches with Blue. Not to mention I can’t think of another occasion to wear this totally punk rock Christmas bikini by JR Wolf Creations. It is their Gothic Christmas Hunt prize. The hunt runs now through the 25th and the prizes are just 3 lindens. Each of the 3 pieces to this bikini set by JR Wolf Creations can be worn separately as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Frey, Isis, Venus). Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Hint: The blood letting candles flicker away, find where the flames dance and you will find me.

Here’s What I Have On:

Hair w/Hat – Doe: Agatha – Indecisive
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – YS&YS – Kitty
Sunglasses – Cae :: Sommer :: Sunglasses

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life.

Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

Happy Holidays to You

Happy Holidays
Hello Again Fab Free’rs. So I’m notoriously late getting my Christmas greeting cards in the mail. I never know what to say and I can never find my address book! This year I kept it simple and sent out a cute photo with “Merry Christmas” scrawled across the bottom. I still had to ask everyone for their address, but next year I’ll be prepared! This cute “Happy Holidays” pose by CNZ reminded me of my Christmas card, and inspired the above look. In this post I’ll tell you how to get the pose, the fancy hair, and this sweet holiday themed dress for FREE.

CNZ

As I mentioned this FREE group gift pose from CNZ inspired the look for this post. I love the chalk scrawl, and Happy Holidays is an appropriate greeting no matter which winter holiday you might be celebrating. You’ll need to join the CNZ group, which is FREE to join at this time. The gift comes with the chalk slate, and 2 versions of the static pose. Also, the vendor will require you to pay one linden and it will then send your gift and return your linden.

Lovey Dovey

These pretty curls are the most recent group gift hairstyle at Lovey Dovey. This time of year is just right for long spiral curls, I think they would look so pretty with all the festive holiday outfits. The gift includes the hairstyle in 2 sizes, and a fatpack of 6 color huds. The Lovey Dovey group is currently 100 linden to join, and there are 4 group gifts available.

Luziefee

I just love the vintage look of this FREE cute holiday dress by Luziefee. The dress is slightly fitted, mid-calf length with long cuffed bell sleeves. It also happens to be the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Luziefee. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor.  The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and has an alpha layer.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh s – XL

Shop ‘Till You Drop!

Merry Kittymas_001

It’s Shop ‘Till You Drop Season, so it’s the perfect time to visit an event called … well… Shop ‘Till You Drop! And as I mentioned in my post {HERE} almost every booth has out a free gift that you can buy for 0L, no group required! I picked up my cute Merry Kittymas sweater at the Sweet Thing stall! I just love it! It comes in fits for Maitreya, as well as Belleza (Freya, Isis, and Venus).

Another December Gift

KoKoLoReS puts out a new group gift like clockwork every month, but right now if you hurry it will be absolutely FREE, because there is no join fee as of the time of this posting. I’m not sure how long this will last (the join fee is usually 250L) so hurry and get in on the deal and pick up the pretty free December gift of “Loulou” that I am showing off in the picture above. You’ll get a hud of natural colors to compliment your usual hair color too!

Merry Kittymas_002

While you’re there…

While your at KoKoLoReS, be sure to stop by the counter for some free gifts. There are three (3) gifts, no group required that you can buy for 0L. I picked up these Catwa mascara appliers for my eyelashes. The luxurious look is great for a formal look! Though I love them for every day wear too! They came in two styles… a longer eyelash look and a shorter eyelash look. In the picture above I have on the shorter eyelashes, and am using the eyeliner from the hud that comes with my Catwa head.
