It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been having so much fun this holiday season putting together little décor sets and festive outfits together with gifts and affordable finds across the grid! It takes a little more time than my usual posts, but I do have a great time with it!

Where it all started… The Cosmo Sales Room

Today my inspiration for this cozy little spot was the Les Enfants de Noel Fireplace Set which is available for purchase at this current round of The Cosmo Sales Room.  Don’t blame me if you get distracted and pick this set up while you are there digging under the Christmas Tree for advent gifts!  Speaking of The Cosmo Sales Room Advent Gifts, the Nutcracker Ornament you see to the right of the fireplace is a free advent  prize by Myrrine and also comes in cute pastel colours too.

Next Stop – On9

You can find the Aphrodite Chocolate & Gingerbread Tray as well as the New Church Grand Holiday Christmas Tree as free On9 group gifts at this round of On9.  There are free group gifts at almost every display, so snag them all! This group is free to join.

Don’t forget your pup!

I often have puppies in my posts these days, I can’t help myself…  This little Dalmation by Mutresse is available at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.

There are a couple of freebies in my ensemble that you might be interested in learning about too!

Get dressed for free…

At Neve you can join their free inworld group and pick up the Holiday 2016 outfit as a free gift!  It is one piece that includes the blouse, belted skirt and cardigan.  A texture change hud is included that will allow you to change textures on four pieces with several different choices.  In my second closer up photo you can see that the texturing is fab!

Curl Your Hair!

Analog Dog does the most adorable curly hairstyles.  If I am ever after curls, that’s my first stop, but this time I was lucky enough to pick the Harmony hairstyle by Analog Dog in a blonde, light brown and red pack for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  I can’t remember which day it was lol, just click them all till you find it!

Paisley Perfection

Pretty in Paisley
Well, hello again Wonderful Readers!  Last Sunday, Ripley and I shared the Militar dress from Scandalize Creations with you in our blog post here.  While scooping up that darling camo mini, I couldn’t help but notice the other group gifts on the wall, so today we traveled back to Scandalize to pick up another Fabulous Find.

Pretty Paisley Print

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for paisley.  There’s something almost hypnotic about the intricate, swirling patterns.  This free Revlu skirt combines my most beloved fabric motif with my top color choice, red – two wins in my book!  With its vibrant print, black waistband, and leg-flattering length, this cheery skirt is sure to remain a favorite in my wardrobe far into the future.  To add Revlu to your SL inventory, simply head on over to Scandalize, join the group for free, and tap the picture on the group gifts wall.

Knotted Top

Playing off the hue of Revlu’s waistband, the black, loosely knotted, leather crop top from Beck complements the skirt without overpowering it.  I like the sheen of the texture and the way the ends of the ties cascade down my midsection in soft waves.  Slender straps leave my shoulders bare to soak up some warm SL rays.  Although I enjoy brisk fall days, this summer-loving-girl still longs to frolic in the sun, and today’s outfit is perfect for just that.  Oh, how I wish I could control the climate in RL as I can in SL!  A short, simple Elements necklace from Wazzer Works, at The Chapter Four, perfectly accessorized my outfit.

Sensuously Strappy Shoes

While out on a relaxing bike ride with my canine pal happily trotting alongside, we passed by the Ricielli store and spotted a sign announcing the Halloween Hunt currently taking place. Each pumpkin in the hunt costs 15L, and these Kyra high heels are just one of 20 prizes to be found.  These slinky shoes come in three shades (blood, midnight, potion), and are the perfect footwear to glam up any outfit.

Listen to Your Heart, Not the Crowd

Time For a New ‘Do

On our way over to the Yasminia sim for a little exploration, Rip and I decided to take a quick detour over to the Hairology event after reading Pru’s beautifully written post here.  At Hairology, Ripley sniffed out this free, medium length, center-parted Bezoar hair from Mithral.  This is just one of many free hairstyles generous designers have set out for all to enjoy.  The package includes a color-change HUD jam-packed with 30 textures to choose from.  Sweet and sophisticated at the same time, Bezoar will flatter any avatar.

I hope you have spotted something in today’s post that inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

What Can You Buy With 10 Little Lindens?

Snapshot_001Well hello there Fabulouses!  I’m giving you call to let you know about a sweet 10L offer I found on marketplace that I thought you might like!  Sometimes these dollarbies and inexpensive finds are actually more of a deal than when you have to join a new group with a fee to obtain a gift, so we like to show them off here on FabFree too!

What can you buy with 10 little lindens?

10L goes a long way at the N-Uno Marketplace store!  There you will find the mesh Shirt Dress as shown in my photo available for 10L.  I am showing off the denim blue shade, but it is also available in four other colours which you can find [HERE], as well as a free demo in case you’d like to try it first.  Sizes included are mesh XXS-L as well as an alpha for those that require use of it.

Have fun shopping!

ps.  If you missed my post from the other day, they also have a gorgeous dress available for 1L! [Blogged HERE]

Use Your Card!

Snapshot_007
Wondering what to do with that 150L inworld gift card you picked up at MOoH! as a group gift?  How about this snuggly belted sweater dress in blue that is on sale for 99L currently? :).

I used the gift card I picked up this month to pay for it, and it was free to me!  This group is 100L to join, but when you do, you gain access to monthly group gifts [October’s Group Gift Blogged Here], an entry to a group only raffle and a 150L store gift card!  Of course you aren’t limited to this item – you can use it on anything in the store, and in fact…  I used it once at an event that MOoH was participating in on one of their items so you aren’t even just limited to their mainstore!

This particular dress comes in XXS-L sizes with an extra set of shorter arm sizes in case your sleeves are too long.  An alpha layer is included for those on the system body!

Perfectly Posh in Pearls

Glancing Back

Happy Saturday, wonderful readers!  This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page.  Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.

With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designsfree back necklace.   The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown.  From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back.  I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight.  The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars.  Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body.  After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.

Perfectly Posh

While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.  It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring.  I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi.  It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read.  Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around.  Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true.  Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend.  Until tomorrow, happy shopping!

Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

Lucia

Snapshot_003
Hi there FabFree! Before I head off for the night, I wanted to pop by and let you know about a free Catwa Skin Applier that is available on the Marketplace!  For those of you with a Catwa Mesh Head, Pumec is offering their Lucia skin priced at 0L.  I am not sure how long this offer will be valid, but it’s quite pretty – so pick it up before it’s too late.

I am wearing the free PUMEC Lucia Gift Skin on my Catwa Candy Head, although it will work on any Catwa Head.  In the folder you will find the Catwa Head Applier with three versions of eyebrows (brown, black, none), matching body appliers for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza as well as Freckle option and a HUD for mesh body parts.  A system skin is even included for those still using the basic body.
