Just Breathe

Just Breathe

The week before Christmas is always a bit hectic, wouldn’t you say?  I know I’ve been running around in RL trying to stay organised without losing my mind.  At moments like these, I need a bit of a calm space.  There are some lovely places in SL where you can collect yourself and remember to just breathe!

By the White River

White River Co.  have got some super lovely freebies in their group notices!  My lovely hair and antlers, as well as my cozy sweater are all tucked away in the notices section of the group profile.  I joined the group for free, and there they were all bundled up nicely for me!  The Sweater comes with a few different texture options (I went for the Christmas ornament look!) and is sized for Maitreya and Hourglass.  The hair comes with several solid and ombré hair colour options.  You can mix it up and will surely look cute whichever way you decide to wear it all!

Don’t forget to breathe, my pretties!

A Little Nonsense Now and Then

A Little Nonsense Now and Then

I know what you’re thinking.  Why is Aline standing in a bathroom that has a pile of pink fruit in it?  Well, you seem to think that I know what’s going around here, and that’s kinda cute.  The real question is, where did I get my super awesome outfit from?

A Little Vinyl

My gorgeous (and daringly cut) dress is a free group gift by Vinyl that I picked up over at Access.  There are a few gifts to grab there if you join their group for free.  I quite enjoy this dress by Vinyl that is all business in the front, but a massive party in the back! (ha!) It comes with an HUD to change to a myriad of colours to suit all your needs.  Cool!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I’m Feeling Pr!tty

The good people over at Pr!tty may have been quiet over the last little while, but they recently put out a new group gift that can be found in group notices.  Evvie is a long, windswept concoction in a gorgeous cotton candy shade of pink.  I love it!  Check for another little gift in notices as well!  The Pr!tty group is 200 Lindens to join at this time. (The links I’ve provided here will give you the group profile!)

What do you think? Is this fruit safe to eat?

‘Tis the Season

Tis the Season

‘Tis the season to be jolly and festive and bright and all that good holiday … um… goodness! It’s also the season for the awesome Wash Winter Wonderland Cart Sale and the season for gifts!

Cart Sale Fa-La-La-La

I found the cutest set of sweater dresses at Luziefee Designs at the Cart Sale. And y’all know how much I love sweater dresses! This is the “Lumi” dress and it comes in five color combos each of which are only 10L on the Cart! Even if you bought one in each color… you’d still be saving tons. And don’t forget to grab the FREE gifty at Luziefee’s Cart too!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

La-La-La-La And Gifts!

Group Gifts that is! I’m also showing off the latest free Group Gift from Magika Hair. This is “Penelope” and isn’t it sweet? Magika never fails to give us such nice styles and generous Group gifts and ‘Penelope’ is no exception. This gift comes with a full fatpack of colors and it is compatible with the Group Only palette group members received a few months ago. Magika’s Group is only 150L to join, very reasonable considering how much members get.

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

The Search for Hot Chocolate

The Hunt for Hot Chocolate

I’m just heading out into the woods to find a cute little place to get a hot chocolate.  I dunno, maybe it’s a skiing thing…I don’t really know how this whole “great outdoors” thing works.  Lucky for me, in SL it is completely normal to show up at a cabin in the woods to get a hot drink while wearing a rather skimpy little dress.  What, it’s plausible!

A Chill Wind

It may be chilly out, but I need to look absolutely adorable for all the upcoming festivities.  I found my sweet top and skirt combo (sized for Maitreya bodies) over at Adorsy.  You can wear the top and skirt separately, and there are lots of different colour options and combinations in the HUD, so you can totally make this outfit your own.  To grab this gift, join the Adorsy group for free, pay the vendor 1L (which it will return to you) and it’s all yours! (There are a bunch of other pretty gifts there too!).

Face Up to it

If you head over to Shiny Stuffs, you will be able to pick up my lovely makeup look for absolutely free!  I got my sparkly red lipstick (so festive!) and my snowflake-laden eyelashes just by paying the vendors in the middle of the room 0L.  These gifts come with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and LAQ.

Hope you find a cozy spot to curl up, in SL or in RL!

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

There are so many Advents and Hunts and Christmas Specials and Fairs going on all over the Grid… it’s hard to choose between them all. When I saw that Pink Cream Pie was having a special in store hunt, I was all over it! There are twenty pink stockings hung up all over the store with a whole wardrobe of Christmas themed goodies in them. Each stocking is just 25L and there’s no group needed.

Sitting pretty

I grabbed several of those little stockings but my favorite are these festive jeans embroidered with pretty poinsettias. The ‘Lacey’ jeans even have a cute little laced up pocket on the side for your cell phone.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Wrapped up

The next event I popped over to was the Ghee Christmas Market. I found this cozy cardigan for free in Ghee’s Lucky Dip barrel. There are a ton of great items to win and you can “dip” once every two hours. A little patience and a little luck and you can collect them all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

You Can Never Be Too Ready

You Can Never Be Too Ready

I know it’s a bit early to be peeking under the Christmas tree while in my pyjamas, but getting a bit of practice in never hurt, now did it?  I need to be in tip top condition for rushing down stairs and sliding artfully towards the gifts under the tree.  And what better to do it in than a super cute onesie?

Tooty Fruity, Oh Rudy!

I’m looking adorable in this sweet little reindeer onesie by Tooty Fruity.  Now, admittedly this reindeer has a single horn (you know, unicorn style) but who am I to judge if this reindeer fancies itself a bit magical?  Anywhos, all joking aside, you can grab this fun gift over at The Naughty List.  I know I mentioned the other day that there were 10 Linden gifts there, but there are also a whole bunch of FREE gifts under the Christmas tree too!  I just joined the Evil Bunny Hunts group for free, and they were all mine.  Can’t say no to that!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I think you guys could do with a bit of Christmas morning jammy sliding practice too!

A Little Christmas Shopping

A little Christmas Shopping

I love this time of year! I love the shops all decorated and the crisp flurries of snow. The carols and the smell of cinnamon and spruce. **Breathes in the Holidays**

Something warm….

Of course, I love having something nice and warm to wear while I’m out braving the crowds and the weather to find those perfect gifts for everyone. Lucky for me, Lybra has this gorgeous coat up for grabs in their Gacha at The Imaginarium. The “Winter Jacket” comes in four common colors and two Rares. There is also a romper to win with six colors. I think the 75L per play is well worth the quality of the coats!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Something Sparkly…

I also picked up this sweet sparkly necklace at the Imaginarium from Dreaming Thicket. This is “Ice Crystals Necklace” and it’s the free gift set out for everyone. The necklace is resizable so you can get the perfect fit. Thanks for the “Happy Holidays”, Dreaming!

The Imaginarium runs until December so hurry over to get your Gacha on and pick up some great free gifts!
