Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

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.

The Ravishing Russian

The Ravishing Russian

Hey Fab Free!

I’ve been back on the trail of yet another hunt that is well worth checking out.  It’s inspired me go distinctively Siberian! The Holiday Hunt winds its way through several fantastic stores, and has loads of cute free prizes for those willing to strain their eyeballs just a little bit!  Also, each store has an item discounted that you can buy for a special low price!  To get your mitts on all this swag, all you have to do in join the Finders Keepers group (it’s free!) and search away.

Skirting the Issue

I landed first at Le Fil Cassé where I searched for the little red Santa box.  After a bit of head scratching (not too much),  I found it and within lurked this cute red skirt that is bordered with a touch of lace.  Great for this time of year, but also can be worn beyond!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Hats Off

Along the Holiday Hunt trail, I stopped off at Besom, and searched again until I came across the box containing this sleek hair, which comes in a free full fatpack of colours.  YAAAS.  Onward the need for freebies drove me, and what did I find at Moon Elixir?  This very warm furry hat, which inspired my post title today.  It’s a bold look, but hey – Second Life’s too short to wear boring hats!

Well-Heeled

My final stop for the day was Phedora, purveyor of cool shoes.  In the store, I came upon the Holiday Hunt box and within I found these free sexy heels that come in several different of colours, for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink!

Well, this ravishing Russian is going to say до свидания (goodbye) for now!  All this hunting has left me completely knackered!

Il Neige!

Il Neige!

I finally invested in a coat!  And by invested in, I mean I got it for free of course.  I am all bundled up and warm and looking quite cute (if I do say so myself) all without spending a single Linden cent (are there Linden cents?  No, there aren’t….but it sounded good right?)  Oh, and for those puzzling over my title, “Il Neige” means it’s snowing in French!  Anyway, want to be warm like me?  Read on!

Warmth, Parisian Style

I toddled my way over to the Swank event, and found that if I TP up to the winter wonderland forest, the creators have dappled the landscape with presents!  Take a wander through the woods, and you’ll find all sorts of goodies.  I picked up this really gorgeous coat and scarf combo by LUXE Paris for free!  I love the grey and cream colour combination, very classy.  It also comes with a fur hat and cuffs if you feel like you need a bit more warmth.  The Neige coat comes in the following sizes:

Sizes

  • XXS-L and an Alpha Layer
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Belleza
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Sparkly Shoes

I couldn’t possibly overheat, so instead of boots I opted for some fabulous sparkly heels that I got delivered through notices from Reign.  They are being super generous to their group members and are sending out a gift every single day leading up to Christmas.  This is the first gift, which I’m not sure I want to take off!  What will they send next!?  The Reign group is currently 1000L to join, but you’ll be getting a gift each day until the 25th, plus there are several still available in the mainstore, so it is a sound investment.  Happy 12 Days of Reignmas!  The shoes come in a full fatpack of colours, and have sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Here’s a closeup for you!

Il Neige 2!

Time to pound the pavement and get some more of this shopping done!

Elf on the Shelf

Elf on the Shelf

I’ve found my fair share of holiday-themed garb this season, but quite frankly nothing is is as striking as the combination of icy blue and red.  The good people down at Sn@tch seemed to be onto this as well, and put together this different and rather attractive take on the Christmas theme.

Ice Fishing

This fantastic outfit actually comes with 23 pieces.  Skirts, tops, shoes, stockings, a gorgeous corset, makeup, hair and even some elf ears.  You can totally make this outfit your own by mixing and matching til the reindeer come home!  I’ve said it before, but I really love a complete outfit!

All you need for this fabulous outfit, is a 7 Seas fishing rod (which you can buy right near the pond outside Sn@tch) that will cost you 100L, no bait required.  Pay once, and play for fishing outfits in the future!

Oh what fun!

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

Fa la la la la Flashdance!

Fa La La La Flashdance

I got out of my anti-Christmas funk (I can’t say no to cookies), and decided I needed to shake things up a bit.  And by shake things up, I meant I needed to literally shake myself by dancing around.  I channeled my inner flashdance and became a maniac in no time flat!

The Gold Standard

My “flashdance” of inspiration came when I had gone shopping to clear my head at The Avenue.  Happily, all the creators had put out free Christmassy gifts!  I picked up the pretty sparkly boxes one by one and found that one contained a free sexy golden suit by Deviant Behavior.  It comes in Fitmesh to fit most avatars.  Now…what could I pair it with to keep me warm?

Festive Legwarmers

Since I was going to be shaking what my momma gave me, I supposed that I’d be warm enough by just wearing some legwarmers.  It all made sense in my mind.  Thankfully, the people at La Gazza Ladra were thinking along the same lines as me and packaged up a sweet pair of free Christmas Legwarmers (they come in both red and green!).

Sizes

  • Fitmesh for Classic Avatars with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

After all that dancing I needed a pick-me up – good thing ASD provided a yummy free candy cane for my après flashdance!  Hurry down to The Avenue – they’re open until December 22nd.  Hey…They’re playing my song!

Jingle Those Bells!

Jingle Those Bells

Some might say it’s too early to start donning the Christmas gear, and usually I’d agree.  However, I just couldn’t wait to show you all this gorgeous group gift from Violent Seduction.

Winter Wonderland

Wearing the Astral Christmas dress that I found, I suddenly felt the urge to head to the North Pole.  Perhaps I was a bit foolhardy wearing such a skimpy dress to the frozen regions of the world, but the magical aura at the North Pole Village and Santa’s Workshop sim drove the cold from my mind.

The elves were merrily capering about, and the crystalline caves glittered before me.  Before I knew it, I was helping wrap gifts, and Santa himself was doing a practice run in his sleigh.

Lo and behold, the Christmas spirit had taken over, and I had to remind myself that it was still November.  Ahwell, I guess I’ll deck the halls anyway!

Astral Christmas

As I mentioned, this gorgeous red dress that caused me to cavort with elves is a free group gift at Violent Seduction.  The group is currently 100 Lindens to join, but they do have some other great gifts out, as well as three group boards, two of which Love previously blogged about HERE and HERE.

Sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Well guys, I’m going to go jingle some bells and hang out with the Sugar Plum fairy!
