Colder Than a Brass Toilet Seat in the Yukon

12-28-2017
…And that’s pretty darn cold

An arctic blast found it’s way to my part of the world this week and I have been experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the past few days.  I’ve done my best to stay inside, but there are times you just have to go out and brave the elements. I’m just glad my dog isn’t a fan of the cold either…

Wrap up and put a lid on it…

Today’s look is a mix of various gifts that are still available as of this posting. The David Sweatshirt by etham is a FREE gift at the Shop & Hop Sale and I was told it would be available until the end of the month. The sweatshirt comes with a texture HUD for different colors and comes fitted for the following body types:

  • Belleza
  • NX-Nardcotix
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Standard
  • TMP

TheWinter Holiday Scarf is the current group gift at ::K::. This scarf comes rigged in both men’s and women’s sizes and adds color to any look. The ::K:: group is FREE to join. And to top it off, (pun intended) I found the Wish Newsboy Cap by Couture Chapeau as a FREE gift to members of The Menstuff Lounge. The cap includes a sizer to get the proper fit. The Menstuff group does have a 50L join fee for non members.

Now… could someone please throw another log or five on the fire? I’m FREEZING!!!

Santa Squad

12-05-2017

 

Are you naughty or nice?

You may not know this but I am a member of the Santa Squad. I report back to the North Pole with details on my fellow bloggers here at FabFree, letting the big guy know if they have been naughty or nice.  I hate to say it, but the list has mixed results. It’s a good thing there are still a few weeks left before Christmas….

The good list…

If you are good (and can find the hunt item) you can have two of the items I am wearing as FREE gifts! The Santa Squad Military Shirt with Tee is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift provided by Dark Water Designs. The shirt comes in two styles, with the tee (shown) and without.  And both styles come in sizes S-L and also in three fitmesh sizes. Get on the good team wearing this shirt. You can also pick up the Winter Newsboy Cap, the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Couture Chapeau. With a built in resizer, it even fit my buckethead easily.

Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone

A Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone, originally blogged [HERE] at Fashion Clinic

I was looking through the blog right from the earliest entries and noted i used to have “Articles” not just a  fashion  agenda. So for my main posting today I thought i would see  how easy it is to create a totally free look.

I am already a member of the Fab Free group and recommend it  if you are not already it is a great group to join and its free. But I also joined the Silken Moon store group which has a joining fee of $L 50 as joining fees go not to bad. Although I have to say I will not be staying .  While the group corner has a number of nice items  most you have to pay for and to me that negates  the reason for paying a fee to joi. While I am sure they are worth the lindens if you are on  a tight budget  this is not helpful.

Here is the look I put together…………

I’ve accessorized the tunic and leggings with our next FREE gift, CC Stingy Brim Fedora (Signature Gold), from Couture Chapeau.  I LOVE fedoras and when I saw this on, I knew I had to use it…it is unisex (scripted resizer) and the texturing is fantastic!

My shoes are the third FREE gift, Ultimate Damara White Wedges, from Baby Monkey.  These shoes are truly fabulous…they come with a HUD to match the skin and tons of nail polish options as well as options for the toe rings!

Look your best walking the red carpet in the Buster Keaton Suit from Avatar Bizarre. The hunt prize in the Hollywood Walk of Fame Hunt includes the suit with bow tie, shoes and a straw hat.

If a straw hat is not your style, try the Sinatra Hat, the gift from Couture Chapeau on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Hunt. Whatever your preference, you can leave your hat on.
