Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter_006Just Tara and I and a mug of hot chocolate taking a stroll through the snow at dusk.  Tara loves the snow.  Me, not so much.  I get cold very quickly so I do much prefer sl snow.  I do however, *always* love a nice yummy steaming cup of hot chocolate!  I don’t drink coffee at all, and only enjoy herbal tea when the mood strikes me, but being the big kid I am, nothing warms me like a chocolate-y mug of goodness!

I got this cozy jacket and scarf combo at Vips Creations, it’s a group gift and her group is only 2L to join!  The scarf is separate from the jacket and so you can wear it without the scarf if you so choose!  She has numerous group gifts available.

The jacket and scarf come in:

  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

The boots are a group gift from HH (Hilly Haalan), the group is free to join and they have an entire room of group gifts for you to grab!  The boots come in:

  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Til next time, stay warm y’all!

Blustery

Blustery

Heyya FabFree! I don’t know about you guys but it’s still pretty cold and snowy in my neck of the real life woods. In fact, I finally got to wear my super cute new snow boots today for the first time. ‘Cause when they talk about “lake effect snow” up here… they ain’t kidding around.  So I wanted to do a post with cold weather gear or boots or coats and SpectacledChic’s gacha “Better Days” at the Epiphany event is just the thing!

I was so lucky to get the Rare for this cozy set right off the bat. It’s always the way when I want a common ( I thought the common blouse was sooo pretty) I pull a Rare. But what the heck, the Rare is pretty cute too. The Rare coat and under shirt comes with a HUD for ten coat colors/patterns,  three colors for the buttons and eight colors for the undershirt.  The coat is a really nicely built item and had gorgeous details and textures. It also comes with the “hands in your pockets” pose and proper alpha built in.

There are eight colors for the rest of the gacha commons – a simple blouse, a solid colored skirt and a cute bucket type hat. There is also a second Rare in a plaid colored skirt.  All this for just 75L per play!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Epiphany runs until February 12 so don’t miss out!

Rudolph and Snow Bunnies

Rudolph

Christmas is the time for cute things and cuddly animals. I absolutely loved this bunny snowman I found at Paper. Sparrow. The lovely Bunnie Francis must have put it out! I also am in love with this cute reindeer plushie and the outfit I have on. Read below for more details!

Get spoiled by Neve at the Shop and Hop

Neve has eleven gifts out at the shop and hop! What a great offer! They are handing out all of their past Christmas gifts in one big bundle in their booth at the Shop and Hop. I hope you enjoy them! I am wearing the Lumos scarf, which is their newest gift this year.

The rest of the getup…

I have a lot of FREE and under 75 L deals stuffed in this adorable outfit today so I will lay the details out in a list for you so that it is easier to read! Here it is:

  • The beautiful sweater dress costs only 1 tiny linden at Ari-Pari on the Joyeux Noel Hunt. It comes in a variety of colours which you can change using a hud. The hint for this prize is: “Santa has a gift just for you”. This hunt ends on December 31st so you have some time to check it out!
  • The hat is a free advent gift at Ari-Pari. It comes in a variety of colours to match all of your holiday outfits. You can grab all of their past advent gifts on their advent calendar for free at the main store here!
  • The ADORABLE Rudolph plushie is from an exclusive Ari-Pari gacha at The Gacha Life. The Gacha Life event ends on December 31st, so make sure you snatch up the gifts there while you still can.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

North Pole Sparkle

North Pole Sparkle

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree! We made to the weekend! WHOOT!  And now, it’s time to relax, do some hunting and hit the granddaddy of the Gacha events… The Arcade! I always look forward to the Arcade and all those fantastic gachas. And I usually spend way too much. But, hey, Lindens are for spending, right?

So this December round, I spent a lot of lindens playing Dirty Princess’ “North Pole Princess”. Usually, I avoid the gachas where the Rare is the one thing that makes the outfit. But this set was so cute, I had to try. There are only three items to win: the boots ( with a solid white color as the other rare), the earrings and the rare coat. I got so lucky. I pulled three sets of earrings, one set of common boots then bingo! The rare coat.  It made my day!  So head over to the Arcade and try your luck.

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

“Gacha” more Free Gifts

"Gacha" more Free Gifts

As soon as I get the notification that the Gacha Garden has opened for another monthly round I get excited for what surprises will be in store.  I already know there will be tons cool gachas to play and plenty of free gifts.  This round did not disappoint.  All the gifts are free for members of the Bellatech Updates Group.  (NOTE: a few gifts are for members of the Gimme Gacha Group, but you won’t know until you click the present box.  If you are wearing the BellaTech Updates group tag and it doesn’t work for a gift, switch to the Gimme Gacha group and you should be able to receive the gift.  Both groups are free to join.)

My first Gacha Garden find was this dress by Romanzin, which comes in a pretty shade of teal.  I had the perfect eye shadow to match tucked away in my inventory, the “Stay at Home Club Set” from Booty’s Beauty (which is still available for free. and comes in BOM and Omega Appliers.)  My next find at the Gacha Garden were these  boots by Art&KO simply called “black shoes.”  Close by I found this cute ice cream cone by Yokai that made a cute prop for the photo.

Dreamer

Dreamer

For I have always been a seeker, a dreamer, and a ponderer on seeking and dreaming.

~ H.P. Lovecraft

Seeking and dreaming. I like that. And here I thought Lovecraft was all demons and Deep Ones.  And if you thought the Call of Lovecraft event was all hunt you’d be mistaken too. I found a lovely Victorian look Gacha from Antaya there!

This is the Clementine Gacha and amazingly, it’s only 25L per play! Look at this gorgeous gown… 25L! In fact, I put this entire outfit together for just 75L in pulls. I wasn’t able to get the little top hat fascinator but I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Gown.  Everything is so beautifully made, every detail is perfect! Add a few holiday touches and this would be perfect for Christmas, wouldn’t it?!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Call of Lovecraft runs until November 21 so don’t miss out.
