On the Moors

On the Moors
It’s about time to head out for a ramble in the moors.  There’s something so special about the flat, wide expanse of heather and grasses that you’ll find rippling gently in the heights of Yorkshire.  It makes me think of rare, sunny afternoons, with clouds scudding by, the promise of a cup of tea and a French fancy by the fire a bit later.  I mean, the fire bit is needed to warm up your inexplicably bare knees!

Wellies

To traipse over the moors, you clearly need a good pair of rubber boots.  If they’re covered in cheerful florals, all the better.  You can get these pretty ones over at Sass!  They’re the latest group gift that you can pick up by joining the group for just 10L.  Pay the vendor 1L, and then it will be returned to you.  Oh, and they come with an HUD to change from pink to blue!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

For the Road

If it gets chilly while you’re walking (that wind has searching fingers for bare midriffs, of course), you’ll clearly need a sweater for later.  This gallantly draped sweater comes from COCO, and it’s their latest group gift!  It comes in both these beige stripes, and a cheerful yellow as well.  The COCO group is free to join, and you’ll find lots of super wonderful gifts there!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I think a few scones might be needed too!

Just a Yummy Little Dessert

cupcake_002

Hey fab folks!

I wanted to call this post Princess of Pastries but a cupcake is not technically a pastry.  I guess its just a yummy little dessert?  Whatever they are, they are absolutely wonderful!  In fact, when my birthday rolls around (approx 5 months and 3 days from now…) feel free to skip the cake and just bring me oodles of cupcakes (why did I almost write mushrooms?  LOL).  When you are as elderly as I am, you get to make requests such as that.  😉

So, multiple goodies for you tonight gang!  First off this adorbs shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. which is a free Stay at Home gift (no group required just go and grab!  Good ol’ g&g!  We should make that a thing.  well, it is a thing, but we should make it an official fab free thing.  I’ll have to check with the boss lady on that.  😉 ) and since I am probably the princess of cupcakes, I found it quite appropriate for this post.  It comes in :

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

So, basically, it fits just about everyone!  Now onto that tower of cupcakes!  It sure looks yummy!!

That is a Life is Sweet and So are You hunt gift from Reckless Angel.  This hunt starts tomorrow (March 6!) and runs until March 31.  It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item.  This cupcake tower is a 1L prize.  It’s sitting atop my table (from Mirage Treasure Co.), the table is not part of the tower.  Just fyi.  lol

On that sweet note, I bid you bon appetit!  It’s the weekend.  Go enjoy some cupcakes to celebrate!

A Brief Respite

A Brief Respite

Valentine’s Day always falls in the dead of winter where I live, so the bright red and pink hearts that permeate the world at this time really perks up what is usually a cold, dreary month.  Instead of ruminating on the piles of snow outside, I choose to go and frolic among the spring meadows of SL, taking just enough time to smell the roses.

Slip Into It

The latest group gift from COCO has made its appearance, and it’s this slinky slip dress that is sexy in a kind of nonchalant way.  I can just imagine the silky material flowing gracefully over every curve of one’s body.  The best part is, it’s completely free when you join the free COCO group.  There are so many lovely gifts there, and new ones are always popping up, so a great group to stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Heel, Toe!

Mosquito’s Way have updated the group gift section again, much to my excitement.  They always have such well-crafted and pretty gifts for their members, that I always feel a little thrill of excitement when a new one pops up.  Join the group for 50L, and you’ll be able to pick up these pretty ombré heels come in three different colours and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Ahh, sunshine.  Forgot what that looked like!

Penny Lane

Penny Lane

I’m suddenly feeling very “Almost Famous” in this outfit.  There’s something a bit Penny Lane about it all, with a bit of fur here, a bit of wild abandon there…and rock and roll present throughout.   The fashion legacy of the 70’s echoes throughout today’s trends, and I think it will for a long time – at least I hope it does!  Let’s get you in some dangly earrings and faux fur, and you’ll feel the vibes too.

Coco but not Chanel

COCO are always so generous.  The regularity and awesomeness of their group gifts are always things you can count upon, and this cool jacket is the latest in a long line of goodies.  It comes in this understated charcoal colour, and two different sizes (not specific to any body, just smaller and larger chest sizes). To get your own, join the COCO group for free!  There are loads of other gifts out too, enough to get you a whole new wardrobe.  Yay!

Look How they Shine For You

My sweet and celestial earrings are the newest group gift from Romazin.  They are known for their delicate jewelry, and these pretty and dangly shoulder-dusters sure make me happy.  They are completely free when you join the free Romazin group – and there are other lovely gifts for you there too.  With these pretty earrings, you also get a quite extensive HUD so you can match them to pretty much any outfit.  How nice is that?

I’m suddenly in the mood for some loud music….hmmm….

The Chilled Grinch

The Chilled Grinch

Hello my lovely little FabFree peeps!  I’m so glad you’re here.  As you well know, I’m not really one for being too grinchy, but some days just call for it a bit.   I’m not saying this is one of those days, but once in a while one needs a shirt that proclaims to the world to handle one with care.  In case that day comes, I’ve got the perfect shirt!

Gacha 4 Life

I love a good Gacha, but if you haven’t noticed, I also happen to love freebies (lol…I think you’ve noticed).  Anyway, The Gacha Life is back combining some of my fave things together in one spot.  Each stall at this event has a little gift bag with goodies for members of their free to join group.  Here’s what I got there!

  • FREE Sweater by ZFG sized for Ebody, Classic, Ebody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine & Venus
  • FREE Skirt by BlondeQueen sized for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Physique, Venus & Maitreya (there’s also a white version in the box!)
  • FREE Bento nails by Sorry Charlie with versions for Belleza, Legacy & Maitreya

I’m not 100% sure how long this event lasts, but it IS called the 12 Days of Christmas, so it should be around until January, at the very least.  Don’t quote me on that, and do head over there as soon as you can!

Catch me if you can, I’m the gingerbread man

Catch me if you can, I'm the gingerbread man
We had our first snowfall in New York City a few days ago.  It didn’t stay very long, but I am sure there will be more snow to come.  On chilly days such as these, it is nice to be cozy indoors.  And what better way then to spend the day hanging out with this cute little gingerbread shoulder pet (that I am promise I will not eat) From the Artist Shed.  This cutie is a free gift at the Yule Cart Sale and Hunt. I also found this great snowman tank top by The Bold Llama Co. there for free as well.  The event runs until the 31st and the gifts can be found under the tree, in the designers stalls and hidden all over the sim.  When you first enter, you can tap the sign to get a notecard of clues to make hunting a little easier.

  • XL-XS Fitmesh

In the Bright of the Day

In the Bright of Day

Sometimes I swear I am the embodiment of one of those memes you sometimes see where there’s a girly princess on one side and a broody goth type on the other, and it suggests that each is one side of the same person. I identify with that meme so darn much! So here we are, dark and broody, but loving the bright wintery holiday season. Speaking of the up-coming holiday, this feather trimmed little black dress is a free group gift at COCO that would be amazing for a swanky Christmas party. Also, if you’ve gone and picked up the free Lelutka Lilly head Aline blogged here, you might want to check out the 60L Happy Weekend Sale at head applier/bom layer at Eudora Beauty. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about both. After all, what better way to start the weekend than with a little retail therapy.

COCO

I love this dress by COCO. It’s simple, it’s elegant, and the feathered hemline is a welcome departure from the fur trim that is ever popular this time of year. It is also absolutely free with the COCO group tag. You can join the COCO store group for free, and pick up a few of the past group gifts as well if you haven’t already.

Sizes Included:  Maitreya (Lara/Petite), Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy

Eudora Beauty

Eudora Beauty has a gorgeous bom layer and Lelutka applier skin for the Lelutka Lilly gift head that you can get for just 60 linden per skin tone during the 60L Happy Weekend Sale this weekend only. The “Lillian” skin at Eudora Beauty is a head applier/bom layer only. You’ll need to purchase the body applier/layer separately. Which given the full price of skins, is still one heck of a deal! This skin will also work with any of the Lelutka Evolution heads. Also, I used the browless option that is included with this skin and wore one of the brow options included in the HUD for the Lelutka Lilly head.

Orange and Black

Orange and Black

In my part of the world, Halloween has pretty much been cancelled this year.  Isn’t that a horrible sentence to write?  Perhaps we should rephrase it to “Halloween activities have been reimagined for safety purposes”.  See, not  so scary now.   I’m sure we’ll be back haunting the streets again soon, but I’m keeping it creepsville in Second Life.

Come Thru COCO!

COCO have been plying group members with free gifts recently, and this cute cropped sweater is the latest in a long list of freebies.  Check out the free doll avatar they gave us just last week HERE!  I like the shape of this sweater very much, and the over the hand style is something I would looooove to have in RL too.  It even comes with a pair of bat wings if you’re feeling particularly spooky.  Get this cute gift by joining the COCO group for free.  I’ve added a photo of the vendor ad below so you can see the bat wings too!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Halloween Gift : Cropped Turtleneck Sweater + Bat Wings

Clamouring for More

We can never have too many hairstyles in SL, now can we?  This long, midnight blue style is a free gift from Limerence.  It’s very nicely windswept so you can imagine having just come in from a cold evening of ghost tours while crunching leaves underfoot.  To get it, just join their free group (there are two – the VIP one is paid, but this hair comes from the free group!  I know!!!).  Can’t get much better than that.

See you ghouls later!
