Casual Decorating Furniture final

Guess who’s back. Back again.

Hey, wonderful readers! I’ve been gone for a while thanks to being busy and sick in real life (yuck). Now that I’m feeling better, though, I can’t wait to show you some of the fabulous deals I’ve dug up. There are a lot of events this December (advents and hunts and gacha fairs oh my!) but I’d like to take a moment to highlight two FabFree Group Gifts today. As always the listing can be found {HERE} and to join this free group simply copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Second Life viewer, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  and click the link when it appears in local chat.

If you’re wondering, yes that is my fireplace.

We’ve been spoiled for choice when it comes to clothing items but did you know that there are some top notch furniture designers offering quality gifts for FabFree group members too? It’s most certainly a boon for those, like me, who love to play around with the look of their apartment and these gifts above have certainly added a bit more festive cheer to my Second Life. First up is the newest FabFree group gift from Lil Tease Creations.  I’ve always loved decorations that come with a little bit of a twist and since I can’t seem to let go of Halloween just yet these Christmas Stockings from Lil Tease Creations with its spoopy (thanks for teaching me this word Love!) and cute designs on the front were simply perfect for my fireplace. In the pack, you’ll get seven (spider design not shown) mesh socks that are one land impact each. The permissions are set to copy so you can duplicate as many as you want of these darling little socks for your residence. After you’ve grabbed your gift, take a look around Lil Tease Creations, I slapped two, no group needed, Midnight Mania boards while I was there.

Next up is the Sugar Candy Wreath by [CIRCA] Living. I’ve been eyeing this gift for a while but since my apartment has no doors there was really nowhere to put it when Halloween rolled around. It was just lucky then that the wreath with its adorable cartoon designs went beautifully with the Christmas Stockings. I enjoy the seasonal orange of the wreath too as it was a good call back to, my favorite season, Autumn. The Sugar Candy Wreath stands at five land impact and permissions are set to copy as well so you can duplicate as many of these beautiful wreaths as you want! Both of these gifts are free so wear your FabFree tag proudly, snap up these gifts and get to decorating!

If that decorating bug has bit you hard…

Here are some more blog posts on other furniture items that are available for free with your FabFree group tag:

Casual Decorating Final

What to wear while decorating.

Seeing as I’ve been in a bit of a knitwear kick recently, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m bringing the Gaa Dress by !cream Spaghetti Hair (gosh what an awesome store name) to your attention today. Not only does this quaint little store have no group required Lucky Boards for you to stalk, it also has a wide range of cheapies in store for visitors. This pretty, sleeveless number costs only 5L and is a steal as you will be getting the dress in not one but two (blue and pink) different colors. What’s more, both versions of the dress is available in one standard mesh size as well as sizes for Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and Maitreya. There is also a good alpha layer included in the package so if you’re still using the standard mesh size that will certainly help with the fitting.

For this picture I’ve paired the Gaa Dress with another great deal from !cream Spaghetti Hair, which is the Love Pink Tights that you can purchase for 15L. These tights come in pants, socks and tattoo layer for those of us using classic avatar bodies as well as Huds for owners of Maitreya or Slink mesh bodies. There are five different designs to choose from in the pack and I went with this playfully pink and blue diamond design which kinda reminds me of fun carnivals. Hmm…maybe it’s not too late to do that snowed in version of Harley Quinn I had in mind…

Have you been stalking the advents?

I have and to make your job easier, FabFree has an advent listing for you {HERE}. One of the advent boards that I’ve been stalking is the one at Alli&Ali Designs and Day 4 yielded the Carrie hairstyle in Cinnamon. It’s always great finding new stores and I’m really glad to have discovered this hairstore during my first ever Advent run in Second Life. As I understand it, the Advent Board gives out individual presents so there might still be a chance for you to receive the Carrie hair during this advent season. If not the Alli&Ali Designs advent is totally free and there’s still plenty of chances for you to pick up some new hairstyle to suit your taste and style!

Speaking of Advents

One of the ones I’m waiting for with baited breath is the 12 Days of Christmas Advent that’s starting at AlterEgo on the 14th of this month. This advent is open to group members so I highly recommend joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group now while it’s free as a membership fee will be in effect after the 13th. When you’re in the group and waiting for the advent to start, go ahead and grab Victoria, the new AlterEgo group gift. This gorgeous skin comes in two tones (rose and sunkissed) and you’ll be getting three classic skin with eyebrows/no eyebrows options, five brow shapes, eyelash alpha, physics and two shapes. There is also an applier hud included that works for Soul Uni, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and Omega mesh bodies and parts. AlterEgo is fast becoming one of my favorite skin places because of it’s well-defined skin and unique faces as well as it’s frequent and generous group gifts. Oh, and if you know someone who’s under 30 Days old in Second Life, bring them over to AlterEgo as there are gifts specifically aimed for newbies too!

And that’s a wrap for today! Happy decorating and adventing!

It’s As Easy As 1 2 3

Snapshot_007

Hi there Fabulous Readers!  Have you been keeping up on your daily holiday advents?  There are some stores that allow us to catch up on previous days picking up multiple previous days at a time, which is a blessing because the FabFree Advent Listing has grown to over 75 participating stores now and that makes it really tough to hit them all each day!

Purplemoon Creations is one of those stores that allows us to pick up past day gifts (still for free) and I am so thankful for that because I had missed a couple of day’s gifts that were very important in the making of my golden outfit today!

  • Day 1: Snowflake Earrings – In both gold and silver options
  • Day 2: Pearl Necklace – In both gold and silver options
  • Day 3: Solaris Dress – A sexy, curve hugging mesh dress in a beautiful gold texture.  This dress is available in mesh, fitted mesh, Maitreya, Belleza & Slink with an additional alpha layer for those that need it.

The Purplemoon Creations inworld group is 50L to join which is worth it for the advent gifts for the rest of the month alone, but additonally there is a group gift and group hunts from time to time too.  You won’t be sorry you paid the fee!

Snow Day

B&T POE9

 

REALLY? This couldn’t have happened during the work week?

Today was the first snow of the year and it HAD to happen on the weekend. Just my luck! I decided to make snowmen out of lemonade snow. I put on the Gray Desert Sweater and Cargo Pants I happened to find at B&T Mesh Studio while making my way through the Peace on Earth Hunt. As always all the gifts on this hunt are FREE.

Balancing Act

One of Carson’s little helpers tipped me off about a great gift on the KittyCatS Advent Board. December 3rd’s gift is a pair of blue and gray SL Balance Shoes made by Hoorenbeek. Have no fear that December 3rd has passed. The gift is still available as are all the gifts revealed so far. The advent board is FREE, no group to join.

I’ll Make You a Snow Man an an an an ….

Also found on the Peace on Earth Hunt was this FREE Peace on Earth Winter Scene from PixelArt Pose Props.  This prop comes with several animations for the swing and building a snowman. Here’s to hoping the next snow will score me a day off of work.

Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend🙂.  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

Previous Peace on Earth Hunt 9 Coverage on FabFree:

  1. Dreaming of Peace on Earth by Carson Caiben
  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Cynful Cereal Killer

Cereal KillerHello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.

Anxiety Group Gift Choker 

The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.

Cereal Killer 1

Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress

Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Adventing We Will !gO!

Snapshot_006
Hey Fabulouses! I am stopping by super fast tonight with a quick snapshot and a flash of news to let you know about a cute advent prize I picked up today at !gO!. As this is an advent gift, it is only available today (12/3/16).

Day 3 Advent @ !gO!:

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Valentine Collared Coat for free under the tree.  You just have to dig your way through the numbered tags to find #3!  I actually picked these pants up yesterday – as the day 2 advent prize at !gO! and thought I would never need a pair of green and white striped pants, but when I saw this jacket – it all came together and I love the way it looks.

Enjoy your evening and happy adventing!
