But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

Oh my goodness, hasn’t this been an amazing week of shopping and gift-getting? Thank goodness SL offers an endless supply of 24-hour coffee shops so we can always find a caffeine pick-me-up to keep us going. 😆

The only thing I love more than December Advent calendars is December Advent calendars that don’t expire after one day! You know, sometimes Real Life happens, and you can’t get in-world one day so you end up missing out on a really amazing gift.

Well, today I bring you glad tidings of TWO stores that have Advent calendars with gifts you can pick up until Christmas!

Advent Adventures

PurpleMoon Creations has once again set out an Advent calendar with beautiful, high-quality gifts. I’m showing you three of them today.

First up is the gorgeous green Velvet Dress, which was the Advent gift for day #7. It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Fitmesh XXS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

The jewelry you see here were also Advent gifts from PurpleMoon. My necklace and earrings were the gifts for day #5, and the pretty snow globe ring was the gift for day #8. I don’t believe the ring is specifically for bento-enabled hands, but it seems to work fine with my Maitreya hands.

Another must-visit Advent calendar is the one at Hello Dave. Each day, there is a new, holiday-themed nail palette for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled (includes Belleza, Empire, and Vista) hands. I’m wearing the day #6 palette, which is white with delicate gold snowflakes.

To receive these – and more! – Advent gifts, you will need to join each store’s in-world group. But it’s a small price to pay for the fabulous gifts you will receive, not only at Christmas, but ALL YEAR LONG, as both stores are extremely generous with gifts. 😀

P.S. Just a note about my shoes by BREATHE: they are still available as a free gift at FaMESHed. But don’t look for them under the Christmas tree; you’ll find them next to one of the concierge tables outside the glass ring. These shoes come with a texture-change HUD and were originally shown in black by Love HERE last month.

Two Birds on a Fence

Two Birds

Hello there, Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  In the midst of a quiet morning walk, Ripley and I paused to listen to chirping and trills from two feathered friends perched on a rustic fence in the Oh Deer sim.  What a lovely start to our day!

Free as a Bird

Before leaving home, I slipped into my silver Rossi Skinny Jeans, which are a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group from Alter.  These curve-hugging trousers feature a lovely swirled embellishment on the right thigh that is just so pretty!  The designer also added soft folds at the knees and a frayed hole in one leg.  These jeans have been lovingly worn and are so so comfy!  To pick up a pair for yourself, journey over to Alter, activate your Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Casual Comfort

My warm Shoulder Sweater from Beck was a 50L Marketplace find that coordinated beautifully with the swirled pattern on my pants.  Its long sleeves and tight knit sheltered me from the chill in the air, while its one-shoulder-bare style added a touch of playfulness.  The sweater itself was comfortably loose, but featured a hemline that fit my waist snugly.  Designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body, this pullover is a terrific addition to my winter wardrobe.

Well, the pupster and I had better head on home and tackle our “to-do” list.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Reindeer Games

12-09-2017

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen….

But I bet you don’t recall, the most frustrating reindeer of all. Meet Vexen.  He can be a bit annoying, but he truly means well. And he heard someone was looking for a reindeer to pull her sleigh. As long as she can put up with Vexen’s “personality quirks” , he will make a good driver of her winter carriage.

Grab your boyberrys…

Peace on Earth Hunt gift, geez, people. The FREE Reindeer Costume from boyberry consists of decorated reindeer antlers, a cowl, chest and shoulder holly, boots, a tail, and a strap to cover your bits. It’s a great costume for the less modest reindeer of the herd. It looks like she’s ready to go…. ummm… why is she holding a whip and grinning?

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/8/2017 – Jelly Roll

Jelly Roll Store Front
Happy Friday Night Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has had a great week. This week I get the fun of sharing another Fabulous designer with you, Jelly Roll. It is a ladies clothing store that has a familiar feel to it, even though it hasn’t been part of Second Life for all that long. The style at Jelly Roll is fun, fashionable, and super wearable ladies clothing. Most of the clothing at Jelly Roll I would consider casual every-day styles, but you will find some dressier items as well.
Jelly Roll Events & Gifts
When you enter the Jelly Roll shop you’ll find the past, current, and up-coming events on the wall just inside the entrance. As you browse through the store, you’ll see a sign near a cozy looking sofa directing you to the second floor for group gifts and discounts. The Jelly Roll group is FREE to join. Once upstairs, there’s a group Lucky Letter chair, several group gifts, and a set of group-only discounted tops that are just 10 linden each. In the same area there’s also an exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Speaking of the Fab Free group gift, if you missed it Love and Carson did a cute group post titled “As I Wish”  showing the FREE gift. You won’t want to miss out on these fun dinosaur pajamas!

Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Good Tidings We Bring

SissBoomGGHello FabFree Readers!  There is just so much going on this month with holiday gifts and hunts and events that I am back again today with another post!   I’ll be sending you on a little tour to three stops to pick up some really nice holiday themed gifts!

1.  Siss Boom!

Siss Boom has just released a plaid version of their Winter Sweater as a free group gift for their VIPs!  I have paired it up with the Natural Maxi Dark Skirt which is currently on sale for 60L on the entryway wall.  The Siss Boom inworld group is 500L to join, but when you see the giant shelf of gifts just for you, you will see that between all of those gifts, and future gifts to come – it’s more than worth the fee!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Werewolf

2.  A Visit To The Arcade!

The Arcade has several gift boxes  sponsored by multiple participating designers under their giant Christmas Tree priced at 0L in the center of the build and I am displaying two of them today.  You may find that if you de-render the tree temporarily, it’s easier to grab the gifts from a birds eye view.

  •  ChicChica Ornament Gift – This cute little break-a-ball has a bento holding animation in it! – FREE
  • AMD Nail Essentials – For Bento Hands, these nails come with a texture change hud for gold, red and green. – FREE

3.  Last, but certainly not least…  “Attention Maci’s Shoppers”!

While I was visiting Maci’s for The Peace on Earth Hunt [HERE], I found that they have some free group gifts scattered about the store with a free group join, and upstairs…  you’ll find The X-Mas Group Gift Holiday Headwear adorned with pine, holly and poinsettia that you see atop my head!

With Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

A Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I finished unpacking our prizes from the Pixies of Snow Hunt (you can read more about our adventure {HERE}), and discovered this exotic Neva skin from Stargazer Creations.  With cool blue and lavender tones swirled across a lighter blue base, this fantasy-themed skin would be ideal for role play.  I really was impressed by the quality of this free skin, and although it’s not my typical SL look, I really wanted to feature it in a blog post.  The prize box includes a skin layer for classic avatars and an Omega Advanced Applier, which allowed me to easily add the skin to both my Maitreya Lara body and Catwa head.  My picture really doesn’t do justice to Neva’s gorgeous tones and swirls of colors.  If you are planning to do some magical role play, and would like a free skin to start you on your journey, this free hunt gift from Stargazer Creations might be just what you need!  Ripley and I were able to complete the hunt in under an hour, so it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar and just a slight investment of time.

We’re off to find someone in need of a sprinkling of pixie dust.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Not Everything is Black and White

12-08-2017

Taking a hunt break….

I’ve been working the Peace on Earth Hunt and I need to take a rest. This hunt has had so many great gifts for us guys and today’s look is no exception. The Peace on Earth Hunt gift from B&T Mesh Studio is the Dual Layer Knit Sweater, Black Jeans & “Blackend” Sharks. The jeans come in regular and muscular sizes and the sweater comes in classic XS-XL sizes. But the real treat of this gift are the “Blackend” Sharks Shoes. These well designed shoes are totally worth making the stop for this hunt gift.

Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

You know the snow is piled high when you have to ride a deer to get around!

Truth be told, I’ve been having so much fun riding around on this sweet, obliging stag that I haven’t wanted to stop. Today, we explored the beautiful forests of IASWAS – Groenland Kangamiut. The sim is full of lovely mountain trails perfect for skiing or sledding… we even saw a few people riding bicycles!

Oh, and I’m keeping him. I named him Fergus. 🙂

What Fun it is to Ride

I’m staying warm on the trail in this cozy, festive coat, which is the latest gift from Rir Life Designs for members of the TeleportHub in-world group.

The White Knitted Coat comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The Red Fur Collar comes in one size and cannot be resized; however, you can move it around to reposition if needed.

Make Me Blush

The weather outside is frightful… and my cheeks are sporting a delightful blush thanks to a free gift I picked up at Izzie’s.

The Winter Blush Gift comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Slink, and Omega mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars.

No need to join a group. Just head over to the Izzie’s mainstore and click to buy for 0L.

P.S. There are a few more gifts under the tree so be sure you check them all out before you leave. 😀

Good Golly Miss Mollie

Hello Winter
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like this has been the longest week of all the long weeks! lol It’s probably just me though. Thankfully I always have Fab Free to “come home” to. I also get the best kind of retail therapy, free! One of the things I love about this time of year in Second Life is the abundance of gifts, and of course my ability to share them with you.

Besom

I love this cute casual hairstyle from Besom.  It’s that style you wear when you are too lazy to get out of your comfy sweats but you still wanna look cute. ha! It’s also their most recent FREE group gift. This awesome gift is a fatpack, which of course means you get all the currently available color packs Besom offers. To get your copy of this hairstyle gift, head over to Besom and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of just 25 linden.

FaMeshed

I know I have talked about how laggy I am these days, well I decided to cross my fingers and hope my little laptop would bravely allow me to navigate the current round of FaMeshed.  By the grace of the technology gods it worked, and thankfully I didn’t have to navigate far. There are lots of FREE holiday gifts at FaMeshed stacked up under the Christmas tree very near the landing point. One of the gifts I picked up is this super cute cropped hoodie by Vinyl. I couldn’t say a bad thing about this top if I wanted to. Everything about it is well made, and I love the wording on the front. The top reads ” Hello Winter” in a simple font with a little bit of gold embellishment. You will need to wear the FaMeshed group tag to get this FREE gift and the many others. The FaMeshed group is FREE to join at this time.

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