Ready to Weekend

Ready to Weekend

Oh thank goodness it’s Friday!  I’m so glad for a few days off, and I’m going to spend them doing all sorts of excellent self-care type of things.  It all starts with the right outfit, and perhaps a pile of tater tots.  Maybe.  Shh, don’t tell anyone.

Keep it Cozy

I headed back to Cozyfest – it’s calmed down a bit if you haven’t managed to get in yet – and picked up a few extra goodies for the weekend.  Some paid, some free that I missed on my first go around.  I first bought the tagged top and shorts for 50L each from Violent Seduction.  They have that goth yet chill vibe I covet.  To go with, I picked up the gift at the Violation booth – which are these glowing snowflake earrings that are equal parts cozy and glam rock.  The earrings were free when I joined the FLF group for free and clicked on the box in their booth.  Cozyfest is running until February 4th!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Yay!  Weekend vibes all around!

Queen of the Penguins

The Shanti group costs 99L to join and they have a VIP group gift every month as well as a 100L credit. Group members also receive a group discount of 50% off on all new releases. What a great group to be in! If this group gift is any preview of future Shanti VIP group gifts, this group is certainly one you should stay in. The gown will be be available for Shanti VIPs in the future in addition to future VIP gift releases.

Cozy Time

Coming Soon

Get Cozy

We saw some gifts at Cozyfest from Aline here. I have a few more from this great event to share today as I finally managed to get into the event! I am only showing free gifts available at Cozyfest.

  • My blush and freckles are gifts from theSkinnery. These gifts come in BOM layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads. This set gives you that perfect flushed frosty look you get in the cold.
  • The scarf is the gift from le fil casse. You can resize it and change it to many different colours with the colour hud included.
  • The headband is the gift from mintae! It’s a bit vintage and super cute.

Other Cozy Finds

I threw on a couple other gifts to complete this look.

  • The cute shoes are a group gift at StephaneL. These are the Giulia boots and they were released this winter. I love them! They fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. The StephaneL group costs 15L to join.
  • The cute hairstyle is a free group gift at Nova Hair Studio. Pick it up along with all their other gifts for free!

See you soon, FabFree!

Welcome Back Darkness

Coming Soon

Hey all! I have a bit of a blowy, witchy cupboard situation going on over here. As much as I loved all the cheery items given out at Christmas, I still love dark fashion and furniture items. I have three awesome freebies to show you tonight so let’s dig in.

New to Me

My updo hairstyle is a free group gift at Vega Design. This is a new-to-me store! The gift comes in a fatpack of colour options and it’s really cute.

Blow Those Doors Open

The cupboards behind me are a free group gift at Boho Soul. The cupboard doors swing open! It’s such a cool gift. Just join their free group and click the gift board. It’s in the same area as their free female & male FabFree gifts, so grab those too when you stop by!

Blow Those Doors Open

Finally, my cross earrings are a free FabFree gift at Afterparty. The pretty earrings include a colour hud that allows you to change the earrings to various metal textures.

See you soon, FabFree!

Peace and Love

Peace and Love

I’m having a bit of a hippie moment.  I feel like fringe and flower crowns and long flowing hair are my current calling.  As with most things, I seem to never be able to settle on just one style.  I’m thankful that I get to experiment with all sides of my personality in SL.  Today, I will be that flower child that I always wanted to be!

Sweet Goodbyes

I was sad to hear that Sweet Willows will be closing down their inworld store at the end of February.  Willow Nova has been very good to members of the FabFree inworld group, updating her gifts very often and offering 50% off on all purchases.  I’m very sad to see her go, but wish her all the best.  In the meantime, head over to the store and pick up the lastest FabFree group gift (our group is ALWAYS free to join) which is this quite sexy cutout dress (you should see the back!) which comes with an extensive HUD to change to different colours and patterns.  Plenty of choices.  There are also loads of deals at Sweet Willows, many items are just 50L for members of the FabFree group – so slap your tag on and support this lovely designer.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Peace and hair grease!

MakeOver Monday part 3

Hey Guys and Gals, it’s Monday so that means our next installment of “MakeOver Monday” is on the air. Or on the web… or whatever.  First I want to say a big THANKS to Karl Jacob who gave me the tip that Altamura had a new free avatar gift at the  eBento Event! I popped over and grabbed the male gift “TakeMYWay”. And I may have done a little happy dance when I saw it was BoM ready! Then I got it set up and I was SO much happier with this avatar. Right out of the box he is miles ahead of poor “Robert”. The shape is nicer and the face is so much less “I’m gonna cut you” angry. He also comes with his own skin and since he’s BoM ready I won’t have any trouble finding more skins and tattoos, etc. for him.  

But for every step forward…  Unfortunately, “TakeMYWay” does not come with a body HUD of any sort. So we are stuck using alpha layers for clothes. Which (in my opinion) is extremely inconvenient. So many mesh clothes don’t even come with alpha layers anymore. So there is that. It’s almost a deal breaker for me. Your mileage may vary. 

 

So, moving on. As you recall we were going to talk about hair today. Again, this was soooo much easier for Kerydwyn. But I found three styles for each of them but there are more out there.  Let’s look at the Ladies first. I also changed, Kerydwyn’s skin to show some of the basic BoM skins you already have in your inventory. Just look under the ‘Clothing’ folder. You’ll also find some hair there too. Some of it, is rather nice, especially the newer mesh avatar’s hair. 

Fist is Firelight. The group is free to join and they offer many gifts and several lucky chairs. The best thing is they offer a gift card for 250L to new avatars ( 30 days old or less ) and unlike some gift cards this one is enough to buy a regular hair completely. This is the “Monica” one of the past group gifts available. I’m showing the “Anna” skin from the Inventory too.

Next is “Leela” Hair from Analog Dog. When you hit the landing point, just walk to your left all the way to the ‘coast’ where you’ll see a big glowing ball. Click it and get a selection of free hair. I’m showing the “Kimberly” skin here once again, in your inventory.

Last we have “Tsarina” from A&A. This is the free group gift for the Fabulously Free Group. Of course, FabFree is free to join.

For Alistar, the selection was a bit more challenging. Free hair for the guys is few and far between but it is out there. Having said this, I think this is where I would get off the free ride and lay out some Lindens. The group for N0_Match is 50L and with that you get monthly gifts for BOTH men and women ( Usually a Unisex style) and you get access to literally dozens of past gifts with many many male styles. 50L is literally 0.21 cents USD… I can find that in the couch cushions… ( A note here… yes, it’s 21cents but the minimum amount you can buy is $2.50… so I’d have to check under my car seats too.)   If you’re set on free, do check out the mesh hair in your inventory. The ‘Brandon’, ‘Johnny’ and ‘Wyatt’ hairs aren’t bad.

So first here is “Mike” from Sintiklia. The Group is free to join and there are loads of Group Gifts to pick up. And don’t forget to check the ladies hair as well. Lots of styles are aimed at women but are more unisex.

Modulus’s “Cole”. You can get it on the MarketPlace or in-store and you get the entire Fatpack of colors. This is an extremely well made hair. And the fact that’s free is just icing on the cake.

Lastly is one of those hairs sold as a ladies style but I think it works as unisex. I found “yume” from ASO on the MarketPlace and there doesn’t appear to be an in-world store.  Again, this was the result of a “Free Hair” search on the MarketPlace.

 

Okay, that’s going to do it for today. I thought I’d get to Inventory control today but I’m thinking that actually needs it’s own post. SO until next week, my dears!

And remember, comments, ideas, opinions etc. are ALWAYS welcome! So let me know what you’re thinking!

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as some blooms in the middle of winter.  When you think about how outside (at least in my part of the world) is cold and barren, with many months to go until things start to poke their heads out of the earth, it is comforting to think that you can grow some pretties indoors.  And if you don’t have a green thumb, virtual blooms will do just fine!

Cozyfest Continues

Yesterday, I told you about the 50L items you can pick up at Cozyfest, but today I’m showing off some of the free gifts that are just as delightful.  To get these gifts, just join the Fifty Linden Fridays group for free, and click on the box located at each stall. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE dress by CandyDoll sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya & V-Tech
  • FREE lollipop by Lyrium
  • FREE flowers and table by Kraftwork

It’s all just so lovely!  What a fab event.  It’s still quite busy, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair –  you have until February 4th.

Keep on blooming, FabFree!

Unicorns, Snowflakes & Multi-coloured Trees

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m hanging out at the gorgeous Mystic Dreamers Mall, the home of Shanti & New Monday. Look at the gorgeous unicorn statue and the colourful tree! The decorating is so pretty. This sim was built by my amazing fellow bloggers Arielle & Julie and their stores are on the sim too. Go TP there, take some pics, and check out the shops!

Now… let’s move onto what my post is really about! I blogged about my recent preoccupation with shopping on the Marketplace here. My Marketplace finds continue, because I have two cute dollarbies from the MP to show off today!

Hair, Headband & Booties

  • These lovely boots I have on are only 1L on Pure Poison’s Marketplace. These come in a full fatpack of colours and they are sized for Lara, Freya, Isis, & Hourglass.
  • The hair & the snowflake heaband are a 1L gift from eXxEsS on the Marketplace. The hair can be changed to so many different plain & ombre colour optons and a colour change hud for the snowflake headband is also included.

Enjoy!
