Lessons Learned and Freebies Found

MimisGizzaA five star resort they said!  Expansive sandy beach, luxury spa, valet service, free wifi, turn down service, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor pools as well as lush green gardens.  It all sounded so perfect for an impromptu overnight mini-vacation to unwind and be pampered.  The real excitig news is that it was HALF PRICE!  I threw some of my essentials in an overnight bag,  got dolled up for my fancypants adventure, and blew goodbye kisses to the furbabies…

I was dressed to the nines!

Thanks to a couple of fabulous freebies, I was dressed to the nines.  I had found the Tracy Strapless Dress, designed by Gizza at Mimi’s Choice priced at 0L in a gift box on the floor.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My Snazzy Gems

This Glittz Zania Jewelry Set that includes the necklace and earrings on my avatar comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the gems, pearls and metal.  It is available as a free group gift at Tres Chic with a free group join.

Upon Arrival…

/me takes off her hat and looks around…  Am I in the right place?  I checked my phone to double check the address…  It would appear the lush green gardens are growing out of those old rusted out cars behind me and the pool as a family of ducks living in it -.-.  I have been tricked by the magic of the interwebs…  once again!  I guess it’s true what they say in regards to hotels …  You get what you pay for.  I suppose I’ll have to make the best of it!

Best Part Of The Day

Blanket
As the sun starts to go down at night, I like to pick out the best part of my day.  Usually the best part of my day is a quiet, relaxed moment when the world stops begging of me and gives back in warm snuggles and silent peace.

Finding Fabulous Freebies At Sentinus

Another part of the day I really enjoyed yesterday was finding a  fabulous free gift at Sentinus.  You can pick up the Su Jean Shorts and Elenor Top for 0L without even joining the group.  You’ll find this in the group gifts section just outside the doors.  Maitreya and Slink fitmesh sizes are included.  I am not sure if this is a limited time offer or  if it will change to a group gift or what…  so act quickly if you’d like this cute summery outfit for free!

ETA: This gift is no longer available.  I guess it was very limited!

Capture Your Moment

Carson has already shared details about his sweater, as a free gift for L’Homme by Gizza in his recent post [HERE].  I brought him in to help me show off this sweet Spring Fever Outdoor Blanket by West End that you can purchase at this round of Swank.  It offers 1 single pose and 7 cozy couples poses – perfect for capturing your “best part of the day”.

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Tired Santa

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.

Matchy Matchy With Loki

Snapshot_001Hey there everyone :).   After seeing Loki looking so handsome in the new group gift for guys at Gizza [HERE], I ran right over to pick up the ladies group gift that is available for November.  I was pleasantly gifted with this beautiful plaid skirt and matching mauve sweater that has me excited about the shades of winter.  Of course this excitement over winter colours won’t last long… just until I have to shovel the snow-packed sidewalk and I’ll be dreaming of summer again.

Details about the November group gift at Gizza…

The gorgeous mauve sweater hugs every curve, being an applier compatible with:

  • Maitreya Mesh Body
  • Belleza Mesh Body
  • Slink Mesh Body

There is also a system layer included for those on the system body.  The ribbon at the chest and arm fur are add-ons.

The mesh plaid skirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Mesh XXS – L + alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

More about the Gizza inworld group:

The Gizza inworld group is free to join, and when you do you gain access to a whole years worth of free group gifts for both men and women.  Most of the time they match too – so if you are in a relationship with a guy who lets you dress up all cute and matchy – here’s your chance to do it for free!  This is also an excellent place to send new residents to help them build up their clothing inventory.

A Little Letter Writing

A Little Letter Writing

In today’s fast paced world of emails and electronic communications, I sometimes long for the printed word. This little nitch at the Paramour sim, reminded me of hand written correspondence and the beauty of an old fashioned snail mail letter.

Gizza is in for free fashion.

I think that’s why I like this November Group gift from Gizza so much. This classic suit works well not only for a modern attire, but it also has a nostalgic feel that reminds me of a bygone area. It is your FREE with your FREE group join. It comes in all the standard sizes and includes its own quality alpha layer.

Just teleport to the main-store, join the group if you are not already in it, and pick up your gift. There are a lot of past groups there for you to pick up, if you’ve never stopped by before.

Here is a preview of a few past FREE Gizza group gifts that have previously been blogged here on FabFree:

Gone Country

Gone Country

Gizza has long been a great place to pick up quality FREE gifts for men and women alike. If you haven’t stopped by yet to pick up the August group gifts this month, you really should. Love showed you the ladies gift [here] and there is a matching men’s outfit you can pick up as well.

But that’s not all. Gizza also has put out this fantastic men’s denim jacket as a FREE gift for L’Homme Magazine readers. The group is FREE to join, and so if you don your tag you can pick up this mesh jacket in all the standard sizes plus a fitmesh size without spending a single linden. It has a great feel to it that can cross from modern to country to hipster, depending upon your setting or what you pair it with. It’s an all around great find.

Ain’t Nobody Gonna Steal My Honey!

Snapshot_004It’s a good thing Gizza put out this sneaky peeky camoflauge hunting set out as a free group gift because I had a little investigating to do this evening.  Someone’s been sneaking my honey for weeks!  Of course when I got there and began my investigation, it was clear instantly that there was nothing but Booger Bear fluff and tiny paw prints.  I knew it had to be those rascally little fuzzbutts…  Now to figure out who they belong to….  CALLLEEEEE

You can pick this this one piece (shorts/shirt/jacket) full “Hunter” outfit by Gizza as a free group gift after you have activated your free Gizza inworld group tag.  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh body specific sizes.  There is also a matching men’s outfit available as a free gift if you feel you need to call for back up on your hunting expedition.

As previously mentioned on FabFree, Gizza has an expansive group gift area at the landing point filled with goodies for girls and guys.  If you happen to know any new residents or come in contact with any, this is a good place for them to visit!  These are high quality, well made items and 100% free 🙂

Here are a couple more examples of gifts available at Gizza:
