Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

It’s Snowing!

It's Snowing!

It’s snowing!  Once in a while I find a spot inworld that has very peaceful snow falling and some twinkling lights, and suddenly I feel all peaceful and relaxed!  Just such a blanket of calming snow covers the It’s Snowing sim, so it’s quite fun to explore.  Do check it out!

Up Top

Right, who here is in the mood for some free hair?  Oh really?  That many of you?  Oh alright then, I’ll tell you how to grab this really cool fatpack of hair PLUS hat from Doe!  If you join their free group, you’ll find a little display outside of the front of the store with the Light Up My Christmas hair.  Pay 100L for it, and it will be immediately refunded if you’re wearing the Doe group tag.  (Make sure you have it active!).   Not sure how long this one will be out, so head on over!

Still Hopping

Shop and Hop rages on, and this amazing sweater from Tetra has been in all my feeds all over the place.  I’ve seen so many bloggers and photographers donning it.  With good reason – it’s completely lovely.  So realistic, and completely jolly.  It comes in two versions, a loose waist to go over pants and a tighter one for leggings etc.  No need to join a group here, just grab it for free at the Tetra booth at Shop & Hop.

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?  At the very least are you somewhat paying attention?  Well, good… cuz it’s time for more gorgeous gifts this season!

Just a Little Slip

This pretty and very silk-like dress comes to you straight from Maai.  They’re celebrating a new location with some new group gifts!  Their group is free to join, and with it you can pick up this pretty turquoise slip dress.  There are some other gifts for other groups there as well, so check those out while you’re at it because they’ve been recently updated as well.

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra

Shocking!

This little string of lights in my mouth (we used to call them mouthies, but no clue if that’s still a term that’s in fashion… 😉 ) is the latest group gift from Doe.  The little lights wink and glimmer as they hang artfully between your lips.  It comes with an HUD to change the string colour, and the lights, so you can switch it up rather easily.  Very fun, just don’t get electrocuted, mmkay?  The Doe group is free to join, and you’ll find this gift on their main counter.

Zap!

I am back at the Shop & Hop, my dear Fab Folks. I can’t seem to get away! There are just so many wonderful free gifts here. I hope you don’t get bored with all my shoppin’ an’ hoppin’!

Today is this beautiful party perfect gown from Lurve. This is the “Forever Loved” gown in the special Halloween colors. Just look at the stunning work on the lace shawl! It’s outstanding! And the gown itself is equally gorgeous. I’m ready for the fanciest Halloween party SL can throw at me!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – M
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I added another Shop & Hop gift to my look tonight. My jewelry is from Zuri and t’s their free gift for us. The ” Lady Skull Fire Opal” choker and earrings couldn’t compliment this dress more if they tried. Both the choker and earrings are resizable and there is a ‘bling’ feature if you want to sparkle.

My seductive pose is yet another free gift at the Shop & Hop. This is “Nezuko” from Fashiowl and it’s one of three gifts in their present. Two of the gifts are full fatpacks of poses and props and one is a single pose with Halloween props. I just love adding to my pose collection! 

If you haven’t been to the Shop & Hop yet… why not??? There great shopping and more free gifts than you can shake a stick at!! Now, get goin’!

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

La Luna Nera

La Luna Nera

FabFree!  It’s finally the weekend, and I can’t put into words just how glad I am to see it arrive.  It suddenly became Fall for reals this week here in Canadaland, and that has put me in an even stronger mood for all things Autumn.  I won’t list all the goodness that awaits us, but instead take you into a deep forest where the leaves crunch under your feet, and the moon peeks out from behind the leaves that still cling to the branches.  Time to have a little tryst with the magic folk in the dark recesses of the woods!

Dressed Up

Of course, for such an auspicious event, I needed a new dress.  I found the perfect one at Belle Époque!  It’s the latest group gift for members of the TeleportHUB group.  This group is 10L to join, and there are lots of great gifts strewn all over the grid for members.  This black number is perfect for a bit of a gothy glam look, the little knot in the midsection making it just a little bit more special.  Love it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky

Now, where’s that spell for cute boys to come flocking around me?

Melty but Yummy!

ice cream final

Hey gang!

This ice cream cone reminds me of growing up, it was always so hot in the summer when the ice cream man came around, that you had to eat your ice cream fast or it would just melt away in record time leaving you with nothing but a puddle!  That said a soft serve cone with chocolate ice cream is just what I can use after a long day of shopping.

So thanks to a tip from Aline, I scooped up this absolutely adorbs dress free at The Makeover Room Event.  It is a free group gift from Entice, and the group is free to join (Makeover Room Group).  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

So super cute and versatile, I feel like this can be for a casual date or even something more fancy.  Now if I don’t drip ice cream all over mine, I’ll tuck this into my closet (inventory!) for another time, it’s a keeper!

Happy almost the weekend gang!
