Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Petite Mort

Like all the gifts in this post, the cute “Let’s Get Baked” top by Petite Mort is a dollarbie gift at the Frost Fair. This fun holiday themed top comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, look for the gold and red gift box at the Petite Mort and buy it for 1 linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Slipper

The perfect house shoes for a day of holiday baking, these shoes are the dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Frost Fair. I really like the little details such as the stitching around the edges. This cute dollarbie is waiting for you at the Frost Fair in a pretty gold and red package at the Slipper booth. The shoes come in a few sizes, including a standard mesh size with a shoe base.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Boutique 187

This headband by Boutique 187 was just too cute to pass up. It’s the cherry on top of an already cute outfit. It isn’t often I have an excuse to wear such a cute and silly accessory.

Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

What’s In Your SL Wallet?

NunoHey FabFree! It’s time to check under those couch cushions and scrape up some all the little lindens you can find because N-Uno has some big sales going on in their Marketplace Store, and when I say sales…  I don’t mean 100L, or 75L or even 50L…  I MEAN 1L!

ENTIRE FATPACKS FOR 1L!

Infact almost everything is priced at 1L so you can shop for hours on a handful of change!  The best way to make your lindens go farther is to skip the single outfits first and go straight for the fatpacks, and then go back to the main marketplace link for other single items that are not sold in fatpacks.  Below you will find first a link to the marketplace store, and then below it you will find a link to just the fatpack items, so you can easily skip over the singles and get more bang for your buck.  Again..  make sure you check out the whole store though – as some items are only sold in singles.

Mama Mia, What A Deal!

In my photo above, you will find me wearing three items from the N-Uno Marketplace store that I picked up for 1L each in full fatpacks.  The Mia Bodysuit, Skirt and Jacket (animated to keep your arms in!) all come in five standard mesh sizes with alpha layers.  Their vendor ad is shown below to give you an idea of fabric textures included.

My Own World

My Own World

Panic Mode

I woke up this morning with a touch of “holiday panic.” You know, that feeling you get when the holidays are creeping up on you waaaay too fast. Your heart starts racing, you feel like you can’t breathe… you break out in a cold sweat. Yeah. It seems like summer was just starting… and now it’s almost Thanksgiving. 😮

I headed out in search of a quiet place to collect my thoughts and wound up on the couch at a coffee bar on the Oh Deer sim. A couple of lattes and some smooth jazz later, I think I might be kinda-sorta-maybe ready to tackle the holidays.

Or maybe I’ll just start with a turkey and see how it goes.

A Sweater and Leather

Before running off in a coffee panic, I managed to get myself dressed in the latest group gift from Ghee. The Ombre Sweater and Leather Pants duo come in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh standard XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A texture-change HUD is included so you can choose from brown, black, burgundy, and blue ombre for the sweater, and the same colors (without the ombre) for the pants.

Since the sweater is cropped, and I was cold thanks to the snow and all, I added a tank top underneath. I picked up the Enora tanks by Edenia on the Marketplace for 1L and used the included appliers for Maitreya. Check out Pru’s post HERE to see what they look like without a sweater.

To “top” things off, I added a cute hat. You can pick up this derby – as well as a baseball cap, felt hat, and Homburg hat – as a free gift from ICONIC at HairOLogy. I didn’t realize how pretty it was until I turned on my windlight and saw the lovely textures!

Each hat comes with a HUD containing several colors (varies by hat), and all are resizeable from the HUD. I’m sure they would also look great on the guys.

Ok, now that I’m all latte’d up, I think I’m ready to brave Costco to do some shopping. Until next time! 😀

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hero Inside

Closed for Business Open for Hero...ing

It was a dark and dangerous alley and all the stores were closed for business… but I had work to do… hero-ing it up and all.

A Dirty Little Secret

It all began with a hunt at Eclectic Stars. The Dirty Little Secrets Hunt to be exact. It has two paths… a 50L hunt path and a 1L hunt path. I stumbled upon the 1L hunt path by chance and ended up with a super hero batman studded blindfold for just 1L at Eclectic Stars. All you have to do is hunt down the little black key with it’s red ribbon. (There’s also a Golden Lasso blindfold in the box.) I knew it was time to find the super hero inside!

The Hero Inside

That led me to the marketplace in search of the perfect shirt. Inodoro provided and for just 5L! I got this batman t-shirt, perfect for every day hero wear, and in the most popular mesh body sizes. The package includes sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. For 5L, it was a steal… errr… deal.

Happy hero-ing!

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!
