Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend🙂.  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Hey Fabulouses! I am stopping by super fast tonight with a quick snapshot and a flash of news to let you know about a cute advent prize I picked up today at !gO!. As this is an advent gift, it is only available today (12/3/16).

Day 3 Advent @ !gO!:

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Valentine Collared Coat for free under the tree.  You just have to dig your way through the numbered tags to find #3!  I actually picked these pants up yesterday – as the day 2 advent prize at !gO! and thought I would never need a pair of green and white striped pants, but when I saw this jacket – it all came together and I love the way it looks.

Enjoy your evening and happy adventing!

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Bringing Home The Tree

Bringing Home the Tree
Hello there, Fab Free!  Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window.  Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes.  “OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears.  All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously.  I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!

Crimson Concoction

The other day, as Rip and I sought out our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion.  In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit.  Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress.  As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley!  This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf.  Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off the winter chill.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fit mesh
  • Fit mesh scarf

Life is Better in Boots

You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear.  I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals.  Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store.  Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options.  You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately.  They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required.  To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here.  With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.

Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way.  Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple?  My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess.  I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

A Girl Can Never Have Too Much Glitter

Snapshot_001
Good afternoon FabFree Readers!  The other day I announced that Glitter had put up a new FabFree group gift [HERE], and today I am wearing the Dora Mesh Outfit in Beige outfit, myself!  If you are a fan of warm autumn hues, don’t let this outfit pass you by!  Due to the use of different Second Life windlight settings, you might notice in the vendor ad that the blouse looks more gold, and in mine – more green.   In standard lighting it is a pretty gold/green blouse with chocolate brown pants.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is always free to join, so it won’t cost you a cent.

Glitter is actually offering this same outfit in many different colours for different groups for free, so if you love it – you can join other groups and pick up more!  As my blog title states…  A girl can never have too much Glitter! I can see mix and matching possibilities🙂.

What sizes you’ll  get…

The Dora Mesh outfit includes the blouse and pants as separates in XS-XL mesh sizes with the co-ordinating alpha layers.

I Need A Lift!

Snapshot_002
Hey Fabulouses, I need a lift!  My car broke down in what appears to be a zombie infected area.  At least I am stranded in style, thanks to Siss Boom who put out this hot Velour Top as a new addition to their huge group gift wall.  This group does have a group fee of 500L, but you won’t be disappointed in the current group gift offerings and you’ll be able to pick up new gifts as they come along too.  You’ll find plenty of fab gifts to make up the fee in no time.

About my hot Velour Top…

The Siss Boom Velour Top in black fits like a glove to my mesh Maitreya body, but does come with an alpha layer if you need it for the system body.  I think it makes a great clubbing top, or even as a top for cool apocalyptic look.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Mesh XXS-L

She’s a Happy Camper

A Happy Camper

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In the midst of holiday shopping, Rip and I decided to take a break over at Etchaflesh.  A few days ago, in my post [HERE], the pupster and I featured a stylish vest we picked up at the store, and we decided to return today to camp awhile.  We were very well rewarded!

Pick Your Poison

While Ripley happily gnawed on a bone, I relaxed for just 35 minutes in one of the plush chairs arranged along the back wall of the store.  Right when the time elapsed, this cozy Poison sweater joined my inventory.  In addition to the knitted pullover, the free prize package included a HUD with 15 color choices for changing up the texture of the arms.  Featuring a scooped neck line, long sleeves, and a realistic ribbed texture, this sweater is destined to become a winter wardrobe staple for me.  I appreciated its generous length, which ensured my tummy stayed toasty warm.

What’s Included:

  • fitted mesh
  • standard sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • alpha layers for both mesh styles
  • Texture HUD for the sleeves

Poison

Avoiding a Cuff Malfunction

I wanted to don a pair of boots to wear while romping with Ripley through the snowy climate of It All Starts With a Smile.  The only problem was the bottom edge of my pants poked right through the sides of my boots …. one of those dreaded SL wardrobe mishaps that never occurs in real life.  After a quick perusing of the Marketplace, I netted this Purrrvy Skinny Jeans applier from the IGNOTO store for only 25L.  Although I applied the jeans on my Maitreya Lara mesh body, they are also designed for Belleza, Slink, and Omega.  With a flattering fit, detailed stitching, and a dark denim wash, these jeans are perfect for casual wear, or they can be easily dressed up with the right layers and shoes.  Best of all, they behave themselves, and don’t project through my boots.  Yay!

As you can see in my photo, Ripley and I have a few packages to deliver before nightfall, so we’d better get pedaling.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Lush

Lush

Just too lush…

Ages ago, a friend of mine teleported me to a sim called Elysion. Membership was required to visit, and he paid the fee of 650 Linden and we walked around a bit, but I didn’t get to do much exploring. I never left the group because of the fee, but I hadn’t been back to the sim because of my busy schedule, despite its promise of a lush adult atmosphere. (Don’t worry, I promise this is a PG-13 post😉 )

Fantasy cream?

I had just finished up a few stops along the trail of the Fantasy Cream Hunt and had come up with a prize that I was aching to show off. I had found this gorgeous not-quite-necklace — but definitely a come hither neckline apparel showpiece — by EvelineInTheBox which is their prize for the Hunt for just 1L if you find the little cup of cream. The gold interwoven chains are each connected by tiny red beads, and the entire thing is resizable for the perfect fit. I knew that if I could find the perfect dress… I’d be ready to explore that mysterious oasis I now consider Elysion.

Woman with the red dress on.

It turned out that I found what I was looking for at The Beautiful Ones. Right now you can pick up the Sarah group gift there one of two ways. It is out as a FREE group gift (just pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be immediately refunded to you). The group join fee is a mere 25 Linden. OR if you don’t have a lot of group space, you can pick up this beautiful applier dress with rigged mesh skirt panels for just 10L (no group space required).

Appliers included: System Layers, Omega and TMP

The Sarah dress also comes with a color change hud with 6 color choices. I’m showing you the dress in red (it matched those lovely and delicate red beads on my neck piece I was telling you about), but with 6 color choices, this is a dress that is versatile.

All decked out.

Now that I was all decked out, it was time to make my visit. I found Elysion prepared for winter… and while there were visitors scattered here and there, no one stopped to disturb me. I wandered the paths and eventually ended up upon the terrace of a stone cottage where I took my picture overlooking the pines next to a sheer curtain. Don’t worry, the fireplace is not too far away… I’ll warm up in time to be off to find more freebies.
