Holiday Card

Today is a good day, My FabFree Fam. This is my 500th post here on the Fabulously Free Blog. Can you believe it? I can’t believe it myself. I had never blogged a post in my life when Love and Prudence took a chance on me back in 2014. Since then there have been highs… and lows. But, wow, what a ride! Thank you, FabFree Family, you readers extraordinaire and my Blog Sisters. Thank you, Love for taking a chance on me not just once… but twice. I wish each and every one of you the best Holiday season and the most Fabulous of New Years!

Cheers and hugs and love,
Juli and Gabriel and Baxter, Badger, Luna and Nox.

‘Tis the Season

Tis the Season

‘Tis the season to be jolly and festive and bright and all that good holiday … um… goodness! It’s also the season for the awesome Wash Winter Wonderland Cart Sale and the season for gifts!

Cart Sale Fa-La-La-La

I found the cutest set of sweater dresses at Luziefee Designs at the Cart Sale. And y’all know how much I love sweater dresses! This is the “Lumi” dress and it comes in five color combos each of which are only 10L on the Cart! Even if you bought one in each color… you’d still be saving tons. And don’t forget to grab the FREE gifty at Luziefee’s Cart too!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

La-La-La-La And Gifts!

Group Gifts that is! I’m also showing off the latest free Group Gift from Magika Hair. This is “Penelope” and isn’t it sweet? Magika never fails to give us such nice styles and generous Group gifts and ‘Penelope’ is no exception. This gift comes with a full fatpack of colors and it is compatible with the Group Only palette group members received a few months ago. Magika’s Group is only 150L to join, very reasonable considering how much members get.

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Have a Very Merry Christmas

Country Christmas
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend thus far. I know I personally am welcoming the escape of Second Life. hah Plus, there are just so many fun things to share with you! As you know, The Wash is having their seasonal Cart Sale and as always there are tons of big bargains. Today I am pleased to share with you some of the Cart Sale finds by a shop called KK Home. If you’re looking for some Christmas decor with a bit of country flair, you’ll definitely want to stop by the KK Home booth.

Everything aside from the chair Pru is seated in is available for next to nothing at the KK Home Cart Sale booth. The little red wood burner is probably my favorite of the items offered. I think the details are just beautiful. Also available at the KK Home booth are the stack of wood, the pine cone wreath, the nutcracker, and the wooden Christmas tree decoration. Most of the items are just 10 linden each, however the wood burner is 50 linden.

Here are the details, happy decorating!

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Christmas Lights All Over Town

The Lights Have a Mind of Their Own

The pupster and I picked up a couple of more hunt items that really got me into the holiday spirit.  I was even motivated to dig out the box of Christmas lights and start decorating.  Notice I said “start.”  Those string lights must have spent all summer knotting themselves up inside their storage container.  Last year, when I put them away, they were neatly coiled.  I don’t know what happened… all I can say is those things have a mind of their own.  It took quite awhile to get the whole mess untangled.  Well, at least I had my wrap top and ribbon choker to keep me looking beautiful in the midst of the snarled jumble.

The Colors of the Season

I just love the bright contrast between red and green in my new Rhea Wrap Top that I picked up over at [QE] Designs.  This fabulous prize from The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt set me back just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  I’m all about hunting down delicious gingerbread cookies (yum!), and when I can scoop up budget friendly goodies as well as cookies, you can count me in!  Featuring long sleeves, a cropped hemline and a curve-hugging wrapped design, this little number is full of holiday cheer.  The package also includes a texture change HUD, which enables you to select a cotton or knit fabric as well as to customize the color on each half of the shirt.  You can have one side red and the other green as I have done, or you can have a solid green or solid red color scheme.  It’s great to have options!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Jingle Belles

My Jingle Belle necklace from Cog and Fleur offered the chipper tinkling of a trio of jingle bells as I struggled to unravel the stubborn string of lights.  The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt gift also included a coordinating pair of earrings that I opted not to wear for my photo.  This bauble set will provide the ideal finishing touch for your outfits throughout the holiday season.  To add this jewelry set to your collection, all you have to do is teleport to the shop, locate the cookie concealed inside, and pay one Linden dollar.

Now that I’ve finally unscrambled the unruly lights, I’d better finish what I started and get to work hanging them up.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Trimming the Tree

trimming the tree

A little more sparkle for the tree, don’t you think? More lights and ornaments? … absolutely! After all that gift shopping I did I need the tree to be just as spectacular. Okay… I admit… I may be just a little Christmas Crazy. OCD = Obsessive Christmas Decorating!

Spruced Up

I found this lovely dress from Una at the Epiphany Holiday Round for just 75L per play. I love the spruce green and the short but modest style. The ‘Mariena’ gacha features this short dress in six colors, a long dress, a cardigan and the short dress wrapped in Christmas lights is the Rare.
