Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets😉.

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Bringing Home The Tree

Bringing Home the Tree
Hello there, Fab Free!  Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window.  Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes.  “OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears.  All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously.  I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!

Crimson Concoction

The other day, as Rip and I sought out our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion.  In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit.  Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress.  As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley!  This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf.  Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off the winter chill.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fit mesh
  • Fit mesh scarf

Life is Better in Boots

You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear.  I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals.  Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store.  Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options.  You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately.  They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required.  To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here.  With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.

Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way.  Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple?  My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess.  I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/02/2016 – Crys Secret Garden

Crys Secret Garden ExteriorHello Fab Free’rs, it’s that time of the week again when we get to talk about one of our Fabulous designers. This week’s pick is Crys Secret Garden. I have to tell you, as lovely as I think my photo turned out, it doesn’t do the Crys Secret Garden shop justice. My poor little laptop just cannot keep up these days! That said, the grounds surrounding the store, and even the shop its self are delightful to explore. Crys Secret Garden is the type of shop you’ll want to take a moment to wander through. There are lots of fun little spots to enjoy, even a little fishing pond! Not to mention just about everything can be purchased so you can create equally whimsical environments of your own.
Crys GiftsThe Crys Secret Garden shop has much of what the name suggests it might. There are lots of landscaping, garden, and decor type items. Additionally you’ll find several opportunities to receive FREE gifts and purchase inexpensive items. At the entrance there are trails leading you to some of the specials and event items so you don’t accidentally miss them. Once you’re inside there’s a cutely decorated information corner to the right where you’ll find the subscriber, group joiner, and information boards. I noticed the shop is participating in a holiday hunt! Right now Crys Secret Garden also has a group gift up, a Midnight Mania Board (no group needed), our Fabulous Fab Free exclusive group gift, and another FREE gift I’ve not seen anywhere else. Above the Crys Secret Garden group gift you’ll see a board that asks how you found the shop. Click the sign, then type your answer in open chat and you’ll instantly be sent a FREE gift. The Crys Secret Garden group is FREE to join. Also, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag pick up the Fab Free group exclusive gift was previously blogged by Astrid here.

The Barber Shop

Barber Shop

A new Sweater.

Byrne has out this great new FREE sweater as their group gift (the group is FREE to join) and you can pick it up before heading off for more winter travels. The gift package includes all the standard sizes, a good quality alpha, and the men’s sweater in black or gold. It’s quite stylish. And style was what was what seemed appropriate as I traveled to “The Village” for my afternoon jaunt.

It was snowing.

It was snowing so I ducked into a little barber shop. It got me remembering that first haircut we all invariably get as children — you know the one… where you cry and your mother takes a picture of the entire traumatic event? It seems, though, that haircuts or at least hairstyles seem to be milestones for changes in our lives.

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel.

The importance of a haircut.

I ran across this quote on google while exploring this little barbershop and it made me reflect a moment, because I have to think that the quote (if Coco Chanel did indeed say it) doesn’t only apply to women. A lot of men get life changing haircuts as well.

Many important milestones come with trips to the salon or at least personal stylings —  such as dances or weddings… and I’m sure the fellas (not just the ladies) get shimmied up with a fresh haircut too. In some cultures the cutting of hair is deeply spiritual, so I took this picture of myself at this quaint little Barber Shop in my brand new Freebies (and I’ve got one more to tell you about) and thought about the changes that are in store for Astrid and I as the new year approaches. We will certainly have some stories to tell you.

The Beaded Bracelet

Did you catch the fancy new bracelet I was sporting? That’s courtesy of Cold Ash, and is their November L’Homme Magazine reader’s gift. The L’Homme Magazine group is Free to join and you can pick up many free gifts from many stores across the grid, including this free bracelet which comes in a left or right version as well as a standard or TMP version. It is black with a couple of brown beads on it to make it extra versatile. And it’s a nice touch to a classic outfit. Every gentleman needs a little extra now and then.

I won’t be getting my hair cut today. But I enjoyed my wander around this shop. There are changes in store for Astrid and I in real life. All good stuff. And we’re excited about sharing our adventures here… and there… with all of you.

Rose Marine & POLO PAUL- Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals -free gift

Getting the kinks worked out…

Writing these posts are hard work… Teleporting all over the place to find great freebie finds for all of you can leave me sore and tense. Good thing my latest find was perfect for that afternoon massage. At Rose Marine & Polo Paul I found the Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals for FREE! No group join, just click the gift and receive. It’s that simple. The yoga pants come in the standard sizes XS-XL, and the sandals are great for just hanging around your skybox or estate.

Towel me more…

A Girl Can Never Have Too Much Glitter

Snapshot_001
Good afternoon FabFree Readers!  The other day I announced that Glitter had put up a new FabFree group gift [HERE], and today I am wearing the Dora Mesh Outfit in Beige outfit, myself!  If you are a fan of warm autumn hues, don’t let this outfit pass you by!  Due to the use of different Second Life windlight settings, you might notice in the vendor ad that the blouse looks more gold, and in mine – more green.   In standard lighting it is a pretty gold/green blouse with chocolate brown pants.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is always free to join, so it won’t cost you a cent.

Glitter is actually offering this same outfit in many different colours for different groups for free, so if you love it – you can join other groups and pick up more!  As my blog title states…  A girl can never have too much Glitter! I can see mix and matching possibilities🙂.

What sizes you’ll  get…

The Dora Mesh outfit includes the blouse and pants as separates in XS-XL mesh sizes with the co-ordinating alpha layers.
