Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

Christmas Kisses

♫ I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause ♪

♪ Underneath the mistletoe last night ♫

Christmas Kisses

And who wouldn’t want a kiss if you’re wearing something like this super smexy get up I found on the “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt“? This nifty little Santa inspired apron dress is from Vips Creations. The “I Love Sexy Christmas” outfit comes with a HUD to change the color and textures of the dress to one of six choices, plus the prize includes jewelry, shoes for SLink High Feet, a red thong and a cute little clutch. The back of the dress is just a little… cheeky so you better be feelin’ sassy if you’re going to wear it out and about. One thing about Vips… there are a TON of Hunts and Christmas Freebies all over the store!

Christmas Kisses

The perfect festive boots I’ve got on are the “Santa Baby” boots from Lindy Modern & Retro shoes, also for the I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt. The boots come with an alpha layer so they fit all feet just right.

The big day is coming up quick and many of our Christmas hunts will be ending soon. The “I Saw….” Hunt will run until December 31st so you don’t have much longer to get ready for that mistletoe smooching.

Merry Everything and Happy Always

Merry Christmas

Merry Everything and Happy Always Fab Free!

❤ Prudence & Roscoe

So we have survived Monday, some of us just barely, and are inching toward Christmas at a faster pace than I am mentally, physically, or financially prepared for! Lucky for me and all of us in the Fab Free Second Life community, there are tons of great gifts available so we can look cute and decorate for the Holidays without breaking the bank. I found this cute little rover on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. I named him Roscoe after my first dog growing up. The little guy was so festive, I couldn’t pass him up. Plus he looks great under my Christmas tree.

The tree is another Marketplace find, and my photos don’t do this dollarbie from a shop called Love justice. It shimmers and sparkles and is really pretty all on its own. Not to mention that I love the slightly gothic element of the spider webs.  I left mine as it is, just added a “homemade” tree skirt, but I think it would be fairly easy to dress this tree up even further with your own decorations if you’re so inclined.

Merry Christmas Outfit

Now that my house and my dog are in the holiday spirit, I thought I’d do a little dressing up myself. BYRNE recently sent out a super cute sweater dress to their subscriber members. The dress is a cozy yet sexy off-the-shoulder v-neck, with a subtle swirl pattern that makes me think of the iridescent patterns on bubbles. This FREE gift includes the mesh dress in a white version as well as the black version pictured. Simply join the subscriber at the BYRNE main location and check the notice history to receive this gorgeous gift.

To add some holiday cheer to my outfit, I added this pretty little holiday ribbon from Indulge Temptation. This ribbon is a FREE gift at the current round of Designer Circle. The ribbon is mesh and has re-size scripts for easy fitting. Pretty accessories like this one are a great way to spruce up any outfit for the holidays. No need to join a group for this one, just buy the gift for zero lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Holiday Selfies

Holiday SelfiesSo after the impromptu snowball fight the other day, I bet Love thought she’d got me showing up with a Rudolph nose and antlers for the photos of the Christmas group gift from Agapee. Really, she just looks darn adorable and the photos are great. There is so much emphasis on family around the holidays that it’s good to focus on friendships too. Friends are often every bit as important as family. These adorable dresses from Agapee were a perfect opportunity for us to dress up and take some photos. Sure, matching outfits may be a little silly, but who cares, that’s half the fun! The dress is fully mesh, including the arm-warmers, and there is a color change hud to change the shirt and skirt separately. Additionally the dress comes in several size/fit options for the perfect fit. The Agapee group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE with your group tag. This dress would be perfect for a holiday outing with friends, or a casual date!

Speaking of the cute glowing red nose and matching antlers Love has on, they are a recent subscribo gift from Hopscotch. You can get this cute holiday accessory for FREE just by heading over to Hopscotch and joining their subscriber. It really is cute and is perfect for adding some holiday fun to punch up your outfit and your photos.

Additionally, I stopped back by the White Elephant Fair for this pretty manicure set with matching rings from ZOZ. The whole love of nail polish is just part of my obsession with makeup! It spans both real life and Second Life. So that you can get a better look at the gift, I included a copy of the ad photo below. You’ll find this gift from ZOZ under the big Christmas tree at the White Elephant Fair for just 1 linden. Included in this pretty present are nail appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza nails, and a right and left version of the ring.

Knockers for the Holidays

Knockers for the Holidays

I cannot get over how many amazing gifts and hunt prizes and holiday goodies are available from all over Second Life this year. This has been one of the most festive holiday seasons I’ve experienced in my many years of being a Second Life resident. The designers have really outdone themselves, which makes this time of year that much more fun for all of us Fab Free’rs! hehehe

Speaking of great holiday gifts, Knockers recently released their December group gift and it’s a must-have! This holiday themed pea-coat is just too cute. I love the little details, and the contrasting lining. Check out the cute little gingerbread man in the pocket too! This is a FREE gift to all group members, and the Knockers group is a one time fee of 150 lindens to join, however there are exclusive monthly gifts.

To go with this great coat, I picked up these fun winter boots from ALB on the Marketplace. The boots are all decked out in pretty holiday fabric, and can be re-sized by clicking each individual boot. There are no “feet” required to wear the boots, and they also include a matching alpha layer. Not only are these boots really cute, they are completely FREE!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello there Fab Free, this is a time sensitive post, so I’ll get right to it! As many of you know, gO! has been doing a daily advent gift for their group members. If you didn’t know, now you do! Each gift is FREE with your gO! group tag. The group is just 30 lindens to join, and there are often gifts. The advent gifts are only available that day. Today’s gift for the ladies is this incredibly cute sort of grunge holiday sweater. There are also separate advent gifts for the men. I haven’t been showing the advent gifts, though they are all really cute, because they are only available for the day. However, this one was just too cute to not share it with you!

To go with this too-cute-for-words sweater from gO! I also picked up these equally cute earrings at Tantalum for just $20 lindens. You’ll see gift boxes on a table, with holiday items for sale. These are the “Frosty Earrings”. I felt they were perfect for the sweater.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far. Take a minute, run over to gO! and get today’s advent gift before it’s gone! Remember, you must join the group and be wearing your group tag.

Dreaming of a White Elephant Christmas

My Gothic Christmas

As far as I am concerned you can still be goth and love the Holidays. Anyone who says different, well they are missing out! I spent an afternoon at the White Elephant Fair and had a really great time. There are tons of great bargains to be had from some wonderful designers. Additionally there are gacha machines all along the walkways and a huge Christmas tree overflowing with gifts from many of the participating designers. Several of the gifts are even FREE!

First things first, how cute is this dress? I love the cute argyle pattern of this fully mesh dress. It’s one of the gachas from Mutiny in Heaven. You can score one of several versions of this dress for just 35 lindens per play. The playful dress comes with a matching alpha layer, and standard mesh sizes. In addition to these fun sweater dresses, Mutiny in Heaven also has this gorgeous long hairstyle as one of their gachas. The hairstyle is called “Maeve” and is just 50 linden per play.

My Gothic Christmas Outfit

Now about those gifts I mentioned.  As those who know me know that I love bats, so this super cute Christmas hat with the bats from The Little Bat is of course my favorite of the gifts I found under the Christmas Tree at The White Elephant Fair. The Little Bat gift hat is FREE, just find the gift under the tree and purchase for zero linden.

Another personal favorite is this festive fuzzy jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The set includes a necklace (shown) and matching earrings (not shown) with fuzzy little pom poms. Included in the gift is a color change /resize hud that lets you resize and change the color of the metal parts as well as the pom poms. The White Elephant gift from Indulge Temptation is just one linden. As with all the White Elephant Fair gifts, you’ll find this one under the big Christmas tree.

Always a sucker for makeup, I was delighted to find the gift from Dust Bunnies under the White Elephant Fair Christmas tree. The gift is a set of lovely lip appliers in various shades of holly red. Included in the gift are appliers for Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink, as well as system tatoo layers for each shade. With all the appliers, and matching system layers, these lipsticks are a steal at just one linden for the set.

Finally, I seriously enjoy decorating for the Holidays. If I had infinite funds and free time, I would decorate the whole house with each season and holiday. Yes, I’m that person! Luckily for me, and for you, the White Elephant Fair gift from Yay and Stuff includes two wreaths, one black (shown) and one red (not shown), as well as a pair of reindeer slippers (not shown). The wreaths are able to be copied so you can put out as many as you like. This gift can be had for just 10 lindens.

All these gifts and the gachas are just a tiny example of the bargains to be had at The White Elephant Fair. I highly suggest everyone take some time to check it out. Even the scenery is worth the visit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Christmas Ride

Winter Ride

I love all the winter scenery around the grid right now. Everything looks pretty and sparkly covered with snow. It really is kind of magical, especially in a virtual setting. With so many places to explore, I donned some boots, and a warm cozy sweater and headed out for some fun in the winter sun.
Christmas Ride OutfitFor starters when picking my outfit, I had to have this FREE group gift sweater from Hudson’s. It’s a beautiful shade of red, with a frilly lace “undershirt” for some added detailing. The undershirt is not a separate piece, however there are optional add-ons for the sleeves and the hem of the shirt to add some extra frill. There is also a system layer, and an Omega applier for the undershirt strap detail that shows with the off-the-shoulder part of the sweater. Additionally, the sweater comes in standard mesh sizes. The Hudson’s group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss this great gift!

I also picked up these cute wellies from SinfulSky on the Marketplace for just 1 linden! The rubber boots come in 3 colors, all of which have a cute bow in the back. The boots do not require any feet and include an alpha layer if you’re not wearing a mesh body. They are also easily re-sized and positioned. At just 1 linden, you’ll want to add these to your closet for sure!

This pretty shoulder-length hairstyle is a FREE group gift from Sentinus. The style is called Eleanor, and she includes a color change hud with 16 color options. The Sentinus group is also FREE to join at this time, and there are other group gifts available as well. I think my favorite part of this hairstyle is the hairline, gotta love the little details!

There are so many advents going on right now, I know it’s hard to keep up. I know I’ve missed a few days at some of the stores. If you’re a sucker for a cute mani/pedi like I am, you’ll want to make sure you check out the advent gifts at Hello Dave. Each day there is a new gift with a new polish/polishes. The gifts are FREE and the group is FREE to join. Even better, you can pick up the gifts from previous days, so you don’t have to worry about missing one. I put on this red swirly sparkly polish from Day 3. The polishes are really pretty, and well worth the effort considering they are FREE, so make your way to Hello Dave and don’t forget to wear your Hello Dave group tag.

Christmas Ride Poses Rather than walk in a Winter Wonderland, why not go for a ride? I found this too cute for words bicycle prop from What Next on the Marketplace. This “Christmastime” bike is highly detailed and has 3 static poses for fun festive photos. The bike is an absolute steal at just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Nerdy Nice

Nerdy Girl Nice

It’s Fri-yay! I decided I’m going to spend the day in my pajamas today. I’m not sure about anyone else, but sometimes you just gotta have a pajama day. Maybe I’ll get some baking done, or wrap some presents! There’s always so much to do at this time of year, you might as well be comfortable while doing it. These super cute and comfy pajamas are the current group gift at Nerdy Girl. They come in appliers for Omega, Maitreya, and Slink compatible bodies only. Also included is the cute little mistletoe headband. The pants are probably my favorite part of the set, and there is a second option with the word “Naughty” rather than “Nice” written down the leg. I chose to wear the “Nice” version, but Santa might have something different to say! The Nerdy Girl group is just 5 lindens to join, and you’ll be asked for 1 linden while wearing your group tag to get the gift. Don’t worry, your 1 linden is instantly refunded.

Once I had my adorable new pajamas, I felt I had to have some slippers. With a little searching I found the perfect pair of house slippers from Phunk on the Marketplace. Rudolph is such an iconic Christmas holiday character, these slippers made me smile just seeing their glowing red noses. The slippers come with a male and a female version, and while Slink feet are not required, I had no issue wearing them with my Slink flat feet. Also included is an antler headband (not pictured) for added cuteness. You’ll find these cute slippers from Phunk for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. Nerdy Gift

While I was browsing the Marketplace, I came across this fun gift box with poses from EverGlow. This fun prop is just 1 linden and includes the 3 poses shown above. It would be great for Holiday photos or even sitting out as decoration.

Insanity has put out a cart full of scrumptious shoes for Slink high feet. I’m not usually the ‘shoe crazy’ girl but these beauties are worth going a little crazy for. I was so impressed with how well made they are. The details are wonderful. And there’s a rainbow of colors available so you can grab a pair for every outfit in your virtual closet. I’m showing of the yummy chocolate brown pair here.
