The Hunt for Freezies

The Hunt for Freezies

Here comes the weekend Fab Free!  I’m dreaming about summer days when you can just listen to music and troll the neighbourhood to buy freezies and chew gum.  You know what I’m saying?

Fab and Always Free

I found this super versatile and cute top at Sweet Willows through the Fab Free Group, of course!  If you join our inworld group for free you get access to a whole mass of awesome gifts, including this one from Sweet Willows!  It comes with an HUD to change to a bunch of different textures full of awesomeness.  Loads of options there!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Voluptuous

Short but Sweet

The perfect skirt to go with my top (also perfect for summer neighbourhood trolling, of course) was yet another free group gift over at Egoxentrikax.  I joined the MLM Free & Offers group for free and got this cute skirt out of it!  Can’t say no to that, can you?

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Good Luck finding some warmth out there!

It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

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

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

This dress would be great for a night on the town or maybe you just want to turn the head of,  your special someone, while having a nice relaxing time in.

I have hazel eyes in real life and have always wanted blue eyes, so why not wear them here in Second Life! Whether you need a good base for eyes and you’re just starting out or you like to collect many different items, these are worth a stop to shop!

Sass and Snowflakes

Warm Winter
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s nearly December?! It seems like just a little bit ago we were talking about Halloween and now Thanksgiving has come and gone. We have been having such mild weather where I live that it doesn’t feel like winter is on the way. I suppose that’s one of the fun things about Second Life, it can be any season you like at any time, and the weather never affects your wardrobe.

Sass

The cute knotted tank top Pru is wearing is a recent group gift at Sass. I love the silliness of the dancing/posing unicorn. Unicorns are always awesome anyway. This FREE group gift from Sass comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours head over to Sass and join the FREE-to-join in world group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There are quite a few group gifts up for grabs at Sass, so don’t miss out!

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya

Exxess

Speaking of cute and awesome, I think this hairstyle from Exxess definitely fits both categories. Not only is the snowflake headband super fun, it also has a color change hud with several preset colors to pick from. The hud also lets you change the color of the snowflakes and the band part of the headband separately. Also, this hairstyle from Exxess is animated! There is a “Breeze” version of this style that has a little movement to the hair which gives the illusion of wind. How do you get your copy of this playful winter hairstyle? You can get it on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. There are two color huds for the hair with tons of color options.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bali is My Next Stop

Acadia

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  In my post yesterday {HERE}, I shared one of our finds from The Cart Wash Sale, and Ripley and I are back today with another discovery.  Yesterdays’ look was casual, so I decided to switch things up today with a date-night dress with some strappy high heels.

Hello Bali Blue

I scooped up my figure-hugging mini dress at the Finale Couture display for only 10L.  With slender shoulder straps joining together in a T formation at the back, and a dramatic plunging neckline, this frock will show off your curves in style.  In a pale, Bali blue shade, with a texture composed of alternating leaf shaped prints, this mini dress ends with an embellished woven fringe, which adds a playful touch of whimsy.  The package also includes Acadia heels in a perfectly coordinated shade, which feature delicately intertwined straps.  There is also a gold toned, beaded necklace with teal-blue gems tucked inside the box as well, however, I didn’t wear it for my photo.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Acadia heels for slink high
  • Acadia necklace (not shown in picture……I didn’t see it in the folder in time)

We’re Not Done Yet…

Ripley and I found *so many* budget-friendly fashions at The Cart Wash Sale, and we will return soon to share another one with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Somewhere Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path 1

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Some days, you need to take a detour off the beaten path, and that’s just what Ripley and I did this morning.  Not only did we discover a cool, green forest sprinkled with wildflowers, we also picked up a budget-friendly outfit to share with you.

Just a Dollar?  You Bet!

For only one little Linden dollar, I scooped up the C’est la Vie maxi skirt and bra top outfit at Mirus Designs.   There are two options available at the shop: the blue that I chose to wear today, and a black version, both priced at only 1L.  The texture of the fabric is well done, with a subtle sheen, and realistic folds.  The line separating the folds in my picture was caused by my pose; it doesn’t appear when you wear the outfit in normal use.  The skirt features a waist panel with decorative stitching, and a white string tied in a bow.  I really like the way the skirt drapes down to my toes.  The outfit includes a coordinating bra top with white stitching, and a halter style neckline with narrow straps.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

Here’s a front view so you can see how beautifully the two pieces blend together to create this playful, casual summer outfit.

Off the Beaten Path 2

Ripley and I plan to do a lot more exploring today.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Plum for Christmas

Plum for Christmas

Going back to knitwear.

So far I’ve been having so much fun rooting around the grid to find interesting pieces of knitwear. There are so many different designs but then again I shouldn’t be surprised as creativity in Second Life runs rampant. Today I’m going to be showing you the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit in plum that you can win from the mischievous Kraken at Graffitiwear. You’ll need to wear your group tag in order to wrestle and/or cajole prizes from Mr. Kraken and if you’re not already a member there is a group join fee of 5L. Prizes from the Kraken changes out weekly however and the group tag gives you access to Lucky and Midnight Mania boards that are changed out just as often. You’ll also be receiving monthly group gifts, Graffitiwear’s December group gift was blogged {HERE} by Astrid if you’d like to take a gander at what it is, so with all these goodies it’s definitely worth the 5L to join. Once you’ve gained the upper hand from that Kraken you’ll find that the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit caters to both classic avatars and those with mesh bodies.

Layers for classic bodies include:

  • Bodysuit top: Shirt and Jacket layer
  • Bodysuit bottom: Pants and Underwear layer
  • Sleeve lengthening: Glove layer (not worn in picture)

The appliers provided in the prize package are:

  • Master applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system.
  • Gloves applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system. (not worn in picture)
  • TMP Hud

I really adore the deep plum color of this body suit but that’s second only to the ruffles that give it its name. They give the whole bodysuit a feminine and unique quality and I almost feel like a fairy while wearing it. The best part about the prim ruffles is that permission to copy and modify them are enabled so you can experiment with their position and size on your avatar’s body easily and also make copies in case there’s a mess. All in all I’m really happy with this find so hurry down to Graffitiwear before Mr.Kraken eats up this gift for good.

Speaking of faeries.

If you’ve read Kat’s post {HERE}, you’ll notice the lovely antlered hair that she has on. That head turning hairstyle is eXxEsS hair store’s past Christmas group gift and I’m happy to report that eXxEsS has continued this tradition and is offering a free hairstyle for this season as well with this whimsical baubled hairdo. I adore the Christmas ornaments decorating this sweeping hairstyle and was happy to see that there is a Hud available to customize the ornaments to suit your mood and outfit. Speaking of customization there are two sets of hair available in the gift package and they come with their own extensive color Hud as well as options to enable breeze and materials or both together. I tried on the breeze option and it looked as if the wispy bangs were moving in the wind and that only means more photo opportunities! To add this beautiful hairstyle to your collection simply head down to eXxEsS‘ main store and buy it for 0L.

Two words for you, Cart. Sale.

If you’ve noticed Love’s post {HERE} you’d know that The Wash Winter Cart Sale has begun! I missed the Summer sale at The Wash and am very, very excited to check out the 10L deals for this current sale. I appreciate that some items are transferable so that you can purchase some great but inexpensive gifts for your friends! On one of my very first rounds around the sim, I found the Belenda boots by Sage and the first thing that caught my eye was that it was both compatible with mesh as well as classic feet. The second thing that caught my eye was the fact that there were twelve (pink worn in the picture) different color options available on top of an easy to use Hud that lets you customize the studs at the boot’s heel. Needless to say, I fell in love with these boots right away and am very happy with not only the leather texture and vivid colors but the price as well. Great quality for 10L? Count me in!

I’ll leave you with ad for these boots so that you can get a look-see at all the colors you’ll be getting with your purchase.

The Most Famous Reindeer of All?

Comet and Cupid
Hello there, Fab Free!  Ripley and I got into the Christmas spirit, and meandered over to the Winter Flakes sim this week.  As you can see, we discovered Comet and Cupid enjoying their last days of vacation before Jolly Old Saint Nick harnesses them up to his sleigh.  Much to my delight, they agreed to pose with me for this snapshot.  I think maybe my cute Miss Klaus mini dress and antlers might have convinced them, but Ripley insisted it was his charming personality that did the trick.

Introducing….Miss Klaus!

Have you checked out the December edition of the 2nd Level Event currently taking place?  Many of the vendors have gifts set out ranging from a variety of poses to this adorable, holiday-themed outfit – all for free!  The free gift package from Black Rose Designs features the darling Miss Klaus mini dress.  With delicate straps, warm, white fur trim, and a silver buckled belt, this sassy number is sure to make your spirits high.  Just in case you don’t encounter Comet and Cupid, the generous Black Rose designers also tucked a cute, stuffed reindeer into the gift to keep you company.  The 2nd Level Event runs until December 30th.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Curvy, eBODY, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus
  • Santa Hat (not shown)

I’ve Got a Candy Cane for You

Love’s post about Candy Cane Kisses must have awakened Ripley’s sweet tooth.  While we were browsing the Marketplace, he quickly zoned in on Pastoral’s Candy Cane Choker.  At only 20L, this necklace provided the perfect finishing touch for my outfit, while still leaving plenty of green for my last minute holiday doggie-treat shopping.  The choker is composed of a simply-tied ribbon with a holly trimmed, cheery candy cane charm.  I love the way its deep red hue echoed the color of my dress.

After bidding farewell to Comet and Cupid, Ripley and I journeyed home, and settled down in front of the fireplace to warm up after our frolic through the snow.  There is something so soothing about relaxing in front of crackling flames on a snowy winter evening…the perfect way to end the day.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping!
