Taking Care of Business

Heyas Fabbies!  Here’s where I get ready to get business done.  This classroom isn’t going to clean itself, now will it?   Here’s a quick one for ya!

To COCO!

There are not one, but two new group gifts at COCO, and they’ll put you in the mood to get some stuff done.  Well, they put me in the mood to at the very least!  Anyway, the COCO group is free to join, and you’ll find this really nicely made top and cardi (with attached tie) as well as the really lovely split hem pants which are just so interesting and different (and well made!).  There are plenty of other awesome gifts too that are great for every day wear.

Let The Sun Shine

Let the sun shine

Happy weekend, FabFree! I hope that yours has been pleasant so far. I’m not feeling particularly verbose, but I hit up another event and also have a group gift to show you. Come along, I’ll tell you about them.

Posh

I went to the Posh Event and there were gifts! I grabbed this cute purse and pose. The purse is free from Blackbird Lace and the pose was only 1L from Lush. Both are nice little ways to round out a look, I’d say. You won’t even need to join a group to get these gifts and the current round of Posh is opened now and will last until March 23rd.

Lucky

Then I hopped over to Omnia. While I was there I won twice on the lucky boards but I still decided to show you the free group gift dress, Yala. This great little mini comes with a HUD of colors to choose from and sizes for:

  • Legacy Classic
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Perky

Besides the lucky boards and Yala, there are some other group gifts up on the wall. Lots of nice quality clothes for the picking. It was hard to decide what to wear! You’ll need to join Omnia‘s free group for the free gifts and also the free lucky boards. And if you go to the other side of the store there are a few free gifts for other groups as well.

Errands and Chocolate

Errands and Chocolate

I’m out and about doing some errands.  All of which involve chocolate.  And by involve chocolate, I mean I’m consuming inordinate amounts in order to get through these to-dos on my list!

Back to COCO

It was just a few days ago that COCO graced us with a new group gift, and lo and behold, there’s a new one!  This sweater (with hands tucked into pockets and awesome tote bag) is the latest in a long line of fantastic gifts.  Join the group for free, and you’ll be able to get this adorable sweater, as well as the at least 30 other extremely well constructed items of clothing and accessories.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

See how much one gets done with a hint of chocolate?

Toujours Provence

Toujours Provence

I have been waiting ever so patiently (for several years now) for restrictions to start lifting and things to get a bit more safe so I can have a much needed vacation.  At the top of my list is lovely Provence in the South of France.  I’m in love with the fields of lavender, the rambling old buildings, the warmth, and of course, the food.  Since I’m still waiting very patiently, I’m pretending to have a nice lunch in the Lubéron, complete with a bit of cassoulet and perhaps even a bit of Pastis.  You can’t blame a girl for dreaming…

Chez COCO

There are two new group gifts at COCO!  They were just added to the massive wall of free gifts just this weekend, and I am feeling a bit rugged and ready for a ramble in them!  You’ll find the skinny jeans, and rain boots (sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink) are the latest, but also the off shoulder cardigan I’m wearing was added not too long ago, and we hadn’t shown it to you on the blog quite yet.  COCO is a wonderful place to go to grab some very excellent staples for your wardrobe, and I recommend it as one of the first stops for any new residents of the grid as well!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

  • Isis (top only)
  • Slink (top only)

Bon appétit!

Sleigh all Day

Sleigh all Day

Dashing through the snow, in a one horsed open sleigh!  Well, in two-legged jeans and sweater for walking, at the very least.  I’m still all aglow and festive today, ready for all the hordes of shoppers that may await me as I finish up my gift buying.  Perhaps the red blinking nose will keep people from getting too close to me in the line ups, and the antlers will serve as my social distancing prongs!  Stay safe out there, folks!

Cuckoo for COCO

There’s a new group gift at COCO!  This amazing, long-sleeved sweater is exactly what the doctor ordered for staying toasty as I trudge through the snow.  I’m sure I’ll be back to my inappropriately chilly outfits soon enough, though – I never learn!  Anywhos, to get this lovely red sweater (which also comes in a grey version) just join the COCO group for free and click on the vendor – you’ll find another new gift has landed there too in the last month and was only just announced this week, so you may have missed it.  A very cute blue cropped cardigan, pick it up while you’re there!

Junk Food for the Soul

Junk Food are hosting a fun little hunt, which is filled to the brim with amusing holiday gifts for everyone.  No need to join a group here, just walk around the sim (and inside the store too) looking for the Christmas cookies.  There are some quite funny gifts on this one, but I settled on showing you the antlers and blinking nose, which are pretty darn cute.  It’s all free!  Have fun searching!

Back to the holiday shopping grind, my friends!

The Sporty Illusion

The Sporty Illusion

Take me out to the….game of some form of athletic exploits…take me out to the….socially distanced and masked croooooowd, buy me some hypoallergenic peanuts and crackerjacks (if they still make those), I don’t care if…. Wait, what was I talking about?  Oh yeah! Time to pretend that I’m in to sports or something!

Cuckoo for COCO

There’s a new group gift at COCO!  This red sporty tee is pretty great because it has the detail of being twisted and draped at the back for a bit of showing off of one’s back!  I always love a twist on a classic, and this totally falls into that category.  The COCO group is free to join, and there are lots of awesome gifts to add to your inventory there.

Sn@tch is Back!

Yep, you heard that right!  After a very trying 2020 and start to 2021, Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch is back inworld creating.  We wish her all the best with all the hardships she’s gone through (you can read her message about what went down with her in RL by clicking on the subscriber unit in her store).  As is her wont, she has first thought of her many fans and graciously updated the Lucky boards (and riot boards) at her store.  I was ever so patient and managed to get this long, and piled high hairstyle for free (no group join required) as well as the socks I’ve got on  (they come with an omega applier as well as system layers).   There are way more new things on the boards there, so well worth checking out!  We’re happy you’re back Sn@tch!

Go team go (or whatever)!

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

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!

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….
