At #bubbles you’ll find mostly mesh ladies clothing in trendy styles, that are sometimes cheeky, but always stylish. The #bubbles shop is open and inviting, as suggested with the “hello” sign welcoming you at the entrance. Also at the entrance you’ll find the “wall of information” where you can do things like join the store group or get a link the #bubbles flickr page. The store it’s self is all decked out for the holidays. There is snow on the ground, and you’ll spot a few Fabulous purple Christmas Trees.
#bubbles Gifts SaleYou can follow the purple trees to the left side of the #bubbles shop and you’ll be greeted by the latest group gift. You’ll also find some cute sweaters with naughty mittens on sale for just 49 lindens each. You’ll notice other sales items marked around the store with the neon blue “sale” signs. Then off course the exclusive Fab Free group gift is also on the wall behind near the #bubbles group gift.

Izzie’s Group Gift Scarf & Glasses Set 

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I have a quick little post about the group gift from Izzie’s to share with you. Honestly it’s just too cute to miss even though there is a group join fee. I love the little snowflakes that are sprinkled over this knit scarf, and the appearance of frost on the over-sized glasses. This FREE group gift at Izzie’s is truly every bit as cute as it looks. The set also includes a color change hud so you can choose between 7 colors to match almost any outfit. The glasses and the scarf have their ownwinter individual huds, so the colors can be changed individually. Additionally the set is unisex. The scarf has male and female sizes, and the glasses are able to be resized manually. As I mentioned, there is a one time join fee for the Izzie’s group, the fee is 250 lindens, however with gifts like this I think the fee is worth it!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Every woman can use a great formal dress in her closet at some time or another.  You never know when an invitation to go fancy dancing will pop in your IM, and you’ll be prepared to say yes, and be there in a pinch like magic.  I think this gown would make for a fabulous bridesmaid dress too, so if you have an upcoming wedding – send in your ladies.  Trust me – they will appreciate that their dress for your big day is free!

Winter Memories

Trucking

Memories.

I learned how to drive on an ancient stick shift truck much like the one in this picture. At least that’s how it seems in the mind’s eye of my inner child. It had a wooden bed and holes in the floor board and I was 15 1/2 and it was winter and I was certain I would not survive the cold as there was no heat in that thing. Yet somehow I managed to grow a fondness for those first experiences. So when I put together my ensemble, I had to capture a picture in front of this pick-up at Rosemoor Sim to share with you.

Trucking 2

The shirt.

I picked up my holiday shirt (it’s an applier T-shirt, and I adore applier shirts as they fit any body shape) for FREE from House of Ruby. The Advent Calendar Hunt is on right now, and House of Ruby is participating. Just hunt down the little candle and this gift is yours for 0L.  You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega.

I needed a scarf!

It was cold outside! But I found a free scarf! If you haven’t stopped by Prism to pick up the advent gifts there, don’t despair. It’s not too late. You can only pick up one gift per day, but you can choose any day (as long as it’s already passed). So in other words if you go today, you could choose any ONE of days 1 through 7. So if you like my scarf you can wear your FREE Prism group tag today and choose day 2 to pick it up! It’s rigged mesh, so it will fit and flow with your body!

One more thing to top it off!

Don’t forget about the Alice Project Advent Calendar! Every day a FREE to all gift hair is being set out, but if you are a member of the VIP group (it is 750 to join) you also get an additional gift. 750 seems steep until you realize you’ll be getting an extra 24 hairs and since Alice Project does these gift projects rather frequently, stay in the group and you’ll be set for the next time they hand out extra gifts to VIP members (which seems to be pretty often in my experience).

I’m wearing Jenn from a couple of days ago. Unlike the daily FREE gifts, the VIP gifts are available to VIP members throughout the advent season, so if you miss a day, you can still pick it up later, as long as you get there by the 24th.

Santa Baby

Santa BabyHi There Fab Free’rs! I can just feel Christmas inching closer, and I’m starting to get excited. I hope you are also! For this post what started with a sexy coat quickly turned into a sexy Santa. lol I call her “Santa Baby”. While the sex does almost ooze from this look, I do think it can be toned down a little with some jeans and a cute top under the coat. Either way, it’s a lot of fun, especially for the holidays. Now I’ll get to telling you all about the  Fab finds that made this Santa Baby look possible!

Santa Baby Look
Eternity Santa Hat

Starting with the hat, this one I found on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. The Santa hat is by Eternity, and no holiday Santa outfit would be complete without a hat like this. This particular hat has resize scripts so it will easily fit male and female avatars. I tilted mine some to better suit all Pru’s fluffy hair!

Indented Holiday Gift

The best part of this look is the jacket in my opinion. This jacket is the FREE holiday gift at Indented. You’ll find it sitting under the Christmas Tree just inside the entrance of the Indented main location. This FREE group gift includes the jacket in unique sizes for specific body types. It also comes in several colors including the red color shown, green, black, and brown. The Indented group is FREE to join. Once you’ve got your Indented tag, you can purchase the gift under the Christmas Tree for zero linden.

AVICANDY Santa’s Woolly Socks 

These cute holiday themed applier socks are another Marketplace buy. They are from a shop called AVICANDY which is known for fun socks and stockings among other things. This specific pair of socks is 49 lindens on the market place and has appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible bodies. Additionally there are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Perch Boots 

These cute boots by Perch are their contribution to the Women Only Hunt 2. The WOH2 hunt is a FREE hunt, and you’ll be searching for a snowflake. These cute boots come with a color change HUD that allows you to choose between 4 neutral colors. They can also be resized via a touch menu. These boots from Perch are not built for specific feet, and include an alpha layer so that classic avatars can wear them as well as mesh avatars. I did need to re-position them some to sit right with my Maitreya Lara body.

I hope you like this saucy Santa look! Here are the details.

Hat – ..::Eternity::.. Santa’s Hat – 10L on the Marketplace

Hair – Exile:After The Rain- Sparkle naturals pack – Past Gift – *Originally Shown Here 

Head – Lelutka – Aria

Eyes – IKON Hope Eyes – Storm

Skin/Lelutka Head Applier – Essences – Selena Gacha – Currently at The Crossroads

Coat – Indented: Aurora – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join 

Socks – AVICANDY Santas Woolly Socks – 49L on the Marketplace

Boots – Perch – Meg Boots – FREE WOH2 Prize

monaLISA Smiles For Lucky Boards

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulous Readers! I came across a “new to me” shop this past weekend where I  picked up a fantastic lucky board prize, as I was updating The FabFree Advent Listing.    monaLISA is hosting an instore advent calendar which you will need to join their group to take advantage of (100L to join), but when you do join their group, you will also gain access to their massive selection of group gifts and group lucky boards too.

I got lucky…

I got lucky, because as I was peeking around the monaLISA shop, a letter “L” popped up in the lucky chair with the Anjali Outfit you see me wearing today.  The patchwork textured Anjali Outfit includes the top and matching skirt, alpha layer, as well as a texture change HUD for a handful of different colours to change both at the same time.

Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Venus
  • Slink Physique

I will definitely be back with more news about this shop, but  make sure you go check it out for yourself!
