Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

Peace Poema

Endless Pain_001

Interesting Fact: In Real Life I’m heavily tattooed. So perhaps it’s ironic that I seldom wear ink in Second Life. I remember coming home from one of my sessions after getting inked, with much of my upper torso wrapped in saran wrap and my very conservative family’s reaction, even though I was almost 30 years old at the time. I didn’t regret the tattoos then, and I still don’t regret them. And if I was going to sport tattoos full time in Second Life, this free hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos might just be the one I would choose.

Peace…

It took me a while to hunt down this free POE hunt gift from Endless Pain Tattoos, even with a hunting buddy, but I love this tattoo called “Peace.” It’s a full upper torso tattoo with sleeves, featuring Mandala designs, the face of an owl, and a small peace symbol. It’s unisex as well and includes appliers for…

Appliers Included:

  • System Body
  • TMP
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • Slink

Speaking of appliers…

I picked up a second free POE hunt gift; this time from POEMA, in the form of this beautiful make-up applier. You get the smokey eyes, blush, and crimson lipstick in either Catwa or Omega appliers. Each part can be applied separately for a finishing look that is unique. Only want the eye shadow? No problem. Just want the lipstick? Sure thing! Want the blush and the lipstick? Yup, you can do that too! It’s a mix and match pallet that’s sure to please the eye. In the picture above, I donned the eye shadow and the lipstick.

Reindeer Games

12-09-2017

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen….

But I bet you don’t recall, the most frustrating reindeer of all. Meet Vexen.  He can be a bit annoying, but he truly means well. And he heard someone was looking for a reindeer to pull her sleigh. As long as she can put up with Vexen’s “personality quirks” , he will make a good driver of her winter carriage.

Grab your boyberrys…

Peace on Earth Hunt gift, geez, people. The FREE Reindeer Costume from boyberry consists of decorated reindeer antlers, a cowl, chest and shoulder holly, boots, a tail, and a strap to cover your bits. It’s a great costume for the less modest reindeer of the herd. It looks like she’s ready to go…. ummm… why is she holding a whip and grinning?

Not Everything is Black and White

12-08-2017

Taking a hunt break….

I’ve been working the Peace on Earth Hunt and I need to take a rest. This hunt has had so many great gifts for us guys and today’s look is no exception. The Peace on Earth Hunt gift from B&T Mesh Studio is the Dual Layer Knit Sweater, Black Jeans & “Blackend” Sharks. The jeans come in regular and muscular sizes and the sweater comes in classic XS-XL sizes. But the real treat of this gift are the “Blackend” Sharks Shoes. These well designed shoes are totally worth making the stop for this hunt gift.

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

Dear Santa, Bring Me Some Gas

12-06-2017

Out of gas and out of time….

As I was getting dressed for the pre-Christmas party she had planned, She decided we needed yet another tree to let all the guests decorate. Cute idea, but the timeliness of her idea left a little to be desired. So, I hopped in the truck and headed to the wooded area out back to find a suitable tree for her grand scheme. It didn’t take long to find what I wanted and a quick cut and it was in the back of the truck headed home… Easy peasy, right? Long story short, I ran out of gas. She’s on her way with the spare 5 gallon tank, but she isn’t happy….

Seeing Red… and White

Today’s holiday look is the White Shirt with Tie and Gray Slacks from Wilson’s Designs. This outfit can be yours for just 1L on the Dear Santa Hunt. If you don’t fee like hunting, you can just purchase the gift near the hunt sign for 25L. This hunt runs all month long. Don’t miss it!

Santa Squad

12-05-2017

 

Are you naughty or nice?

You may not know this but I am a member of the Santa Squad. I report back to the North Pole with details on my fellow bloggers here at FabFree, letting the big guy know if they have been naughty or nice.  I hate to say it, but the list has mixed results. It’s a good thing there are still a few weeks left before Christmas….

The good list…

If you are good (and can find the hunt item) you can have two of the items I am wearing as FREE gifts! The Santa Squad Military Shirt with Tee is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift provided by Dark Water Designs. The shirt comes in two styles, with the tee (shown) and without.  And both styles come in sizes S-L and also in three fitmesh sizes. Get on the good team wearing this shirt. You can also pick up the Winter Newsboy Cap, the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Couture Chapeau. With a built in resizer, it even fit my buckethead easily.
