The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Ok Fabs!  Hunker down because I’m about to tell you a thing.  I hate changing my head/body/skin/etc.  I know, I know.  That’s part of the beauty of SL, you can look however you like.  However, I really love the way I usually look.  My old head may be *quite* old now, but she just makes me happy, ya know?  Also, I just have a deep distrust of changing the way I look… don’t get me started on BOM.  I am a bit old school, it is true.  So, when I set out to show off the new free LeLutka heads (!) it was with a bit of apprehension.  So, the moral of what I’m trying to blather on about is… If I can do it, so can you.

Yes, TWO!

If you haven’t heard by now, LeLutka are doing it up in grand style this year with yet another TWO free mesh heads with ALL the bells and whistles.  They kept this amazing gift on the downlow for so long, we had all but thought it wasn’t happening for the third year running.  BUT, here we are, and I am exuding gratitude for yet another HUGE and AWESOME gift.  I love that the gentlemen haven’t been forgotten either, because we know they so often are.  I grabbed my partner Oov, and we tinkered for just a little bit.  There was a bit of grumbling at which Alpha I was supposed to wear, but in under 10 mins we were looking pretty spiff.  SO… again, it may be scary, but it is doable.  Just save your previous self, so you can jump right back into it after if you’re overwhelmed.  Anywhos, the free Lelutka heads… there are three locations to grab these gifts.  Just join the free Lelutka group, activate the tag and jump on over.  Click away, and they’re yours.  You may have heard in my post yesterday that 53 OTHER designers are also giving away all sorts of free gifts to go with.  You can find all the details about who else is participating HERE.

Woah! Two Free Mesh Heads from LeLutka!

Untitled

Ok FabFree, strap yourself in, because it’s time for another wild ride down the path of free mesh heads!  LeLutka are being super generous over the Holidays with not one, but TWO free, complete, mesh heads from their Evolution line!  Wow!  Read on, and I’ll tell you all about how to grab this amazing gift and what’s included.

Lilly & Alain

I roped in the lovely Oov to help me out with showing you both the male and female heads, and we were pretty intent on doing it all for free, to see if you really are getting this head for 0L or if you have to pay anything extra to make it work.  We are happy to report that both heads are good to go and come with everything you need to move forward in the realms of mesh.  I am really not someone who knows much about BOM (it’s just not my jam) but I found this was fairly easy to use and I put this look together with the skins, eyebrows, eyes, makeup, facial expressions etc that were included in the free pack.  When you really think about it, this is truly an amazing gift!  Oov was just as impressed with the male head and we were excited with the way it all turned out.

To get yours, join the Lelutka group for free and head to THIS LOCATION, and click on the sign.  I’ll admit, the sim is extremely busy and you may be fighting for a while to get in, but don’t fret – you’ve got until December 26th to get these wonderful gifts!

Also, though you can make your own shape using “edit my appearance”, and there is one included in the box, I headed over to Pout! to pick up the free gift shape they just put out for the Lilly head.  No group join required!

Thank you, LeLutka!

Nostalgia

Nostalgic

Have you ever been nostalgic for something? Like the smell of an old bookstore or the sights and sounds of a record store. It’d be great to be able to just snap your finger and be instantly transported into a record store straight outta the movies. Like Championship Vinyl from High Fidelity, Trax from Pretty in Pink, Polymer Records from This is Spinal Tap, Motormouth Maybelle’s in Hairspray, Chelsea Drugstore from A Clockwork Orange, or Empire Records of Empire Records. I think it would be awesome to visit Trax. When I grab the Men Only Hunt gift from Ascend and saw the way the Rick Open button Blazer looked. It gave me them Duckie vibes.

I came up with a Duckie inspired outfit, decked out a record store in 80’s vibes, and put on some Otis Redding. Before you know it I was singing
“All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna
Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Don’t be surprised, man
You got to squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave
You got to hold her, brother, something, man
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah, yeah”
and dancing around just like Duckie. You better dance your way over to Ascend and grab this Rick blazer soon. You only have eight more days before the Men Only Hunt ends. You’ll be looking for a PS controller and this hunt gift will set you back 10L. Pardon me while I dust off my vinyl and get back to dancing and listening to some tunes.

Skateboard Love


Skaboard Love

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I thought why not show some mush and love on the blog. 😛 I’ve got my guy with me to help show this super sweet couples pose gift from the Pop Up Pose Fair and some matching his and hers hunt dollarbie prizes from the Love Me Not Hunt. Keep reading for all the important info.

The Pose – The moment I saw this super fun couple’s pose by Fashiowl, I had to share it with you! It is one of 3 free gift poses at the Pop Up Pose Fair. It comes with the skateboard props, a mirrored version of the pose, and the pose is adjustable. To get your copy of this gift and the others by Fashiowl, you’ll need to join the Pose Fair group. It’s free to join. Then you can click the gift boxes at each of the participating vendors and get your free gifts. Also, the Pop Up Pose Fair ends Feb. 14th, so don’t wait!

Waffles LMN Hunt Prizes – There are dollarbie his and hers hunt prizes for the Love Me Not Hunt at Waffles that are of course perfect for Valentine’s Day. The “Love Me” shirt for the guys comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. The “Love Me” dress for the ladies at Waffles also comes in multiple sizes and will work for classic avatars. The LMN Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a stem-less red rose. This hunt runs through the end of the month, so there’s still some time left to hunt the multiple floors at Waffles for these prizes.
Shirt Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake, Slink Physique Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (S,M,L) + Alpha Layer
Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), eBody, Fitmesh Standard + Alpha Layer

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Snow

A Shovel Full…

I knew better than to answer the phone at the crack of dawn… “Carson, PLEEEEEEEASE come shovel my snow.” The nice guy that I am gets dressed and heads over to Love’s house to dig her out. It’s a good thing I stopped at Free Dove and picked up some warm clothes. and yes, the FREE in Free Dove means everything is FREE! I picked out the People Puffer Jacket by Kaju and the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men. I also picked up the Mosh Pit Combat Boots by Sn@tch. This is keeping me warm. I’m even working up a sweat.

The snow wasn’t the only thing that got brushed off…

As I’m hard at work shoveling, (proof provided in the picture above) Love is standing at the window, clutching a teddy bear and sipping a cup of coffee. All the while, I’m thinking about after I get finished, Love will offer me a cup.  I finish up and as I head for the steps, I hear “Looks good, Carson. Thanks!” and see the curtains pulled tightly together. I hopped in my old jalopy, (yes it’s running, today…) and changed out of my wet coat and into the Leni Roll Neck Sweater by Tiffany Designs, another FREE gift at Free Dove. I headed down the road and bought my own cup of coffee.  The next time she calls to be shoveled out, I’m grabbing this snow plow. To heck with the shovel!

Deadwool & Pie

Deadwool

Walking off the pie…

I admit, I had one too many slices of pumpkin pie 🍰, and YES I made it! So I decided to take a little stroll to burn off some excess holiday calories. When I was out waiting on a bench shopping the other day, I happened to buy a few Christmas presents for myself. Anyone who knows me is astonished that I actually SPENT MONEY on myself or anyone else, (the present I got Love only cost $10L.. shhhh). I have been told ever since I came back that I HAVE to shop at Deadwool. I found out they had the Erik Gloves as a FREE group gift and I was in the door. And that’s where It went downhill from there….

They get you with the marketing every time…

I picked up the gloves and then looked slightly to my left and I saw it… The Mesh Duster… My mind was racing… I want this… I NEED THIS!  The logical side of my brain was saying “You don’t even know if it fits”. I instinctively clicked for a demo. “Great, it fits… no, no It wasn’t supposed to fit.” Time to do the math… I can buy one. OR I can buy the fatpack of three (because I know in hindsight I always wish I gotten the fatpack.. as you will see). So I put down $899L for the fatpack and greedily opened it up like a child opening up presents under the tree.

Baring my chest or not…

I need a shirt to go under the jacket. “The simplest thing would be to just get a shirt here” my mind was in full spend mode at this point. It was time I took control again. I decided I could find a free or cheap option elsewhere. TL:DR I ended up back at Deadwool l and purchased the Hugo black denim shirt for $360L. Yes, I lost that battle with my own brain. Now my brain says I should have bought the whole shirt fatpack… Dang, it was right again. I did manage to save myself some money on the pants. I picked up the Peter Outfit by TentatioN, a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge and used the pants to make this great look.

Accessorize then exercise…

I already mentioned I got the Erik Gloves at Deadwool  (where this long story began). I Also picked up two gifts under the Christmas tree at CosmopolitanA&D Clothing has provided the Top Gun Glasses as a FREE group gift. I finished off the look with the  Meva Scarf another FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]. I did use the color change HUD to give it a completely different look. After all this spending, I was a bit stressed out. Now you know why I went on a pie 🍰 binge and why I’m walking to work off those added pounds. It’s such a “chore” to keep your body fit SL. :🍰

True Fashion Times

Untitled

Hello everyone, I have a few great freebie finds for you today from an event called True Fashion Times. It runs until 22nd November so you have a few days to get there and check it out. Lots of designers have put free gifts and dollarbies out in their stores so be sure to check as you wander around. There is also a huge stretch of gachas for you to play also! Today I am showing you two great gifts from Lavarock Creations, one for the ladies and one for the guys! The Lita and Lito jackets are freebies found at their store at this event and I thought I would bring in the lovely Mr0mizu to help show them off.

Also at the event are the shorts I am wearing. The Susy Shorts are by Sweet Temptation and are part of a freebie two piece outfit that includes the shorts and a tied vest top, that you can find at their store at the event.
