It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Hey guys!  I’m seriously enjoying fall right now, and have dipped into the realms of nighttime bonfires and bobbing for apples.  You know – good ol’ fashioned fun!  I’ve got lots of freebies for you today – so let’s get to it!

And Fall is my Favourite of All

At The Seasons Story, it’s their anniversary, and there are like, a bajillion free gifts for you to pick up!  I got this super cute knotted tee from Kio-Kio (I love the amusing subtext going on with the shirt) as well as this lovely sparkly clutch from LANA.  And yes, it actually sparkles (not in that annoying way that bling used to, I promise!).  Just join the Seasons Story group for free, and you’ll be unboxing gifts for ages!

Shirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Hello Moochie!

It’s time for the yearly All Hallows Eve hunt over at Moochie!  There are plenty of gorgeous nail appliers by Hello Dave you can pick up for free just by doing a little sleuthing.  Not gonna lie, it isn’t easy, but it’s super enjoyable because the Moochie sim is really insanely gorgeous, and I could spend ages lying in the piles of leaves and meandering about.  You’ll find a notecard at the landing point with all the different things you’re looking for.  I’m showing off the spooked nail polish which features some super cute ghosts floating around which comes with appliers for Maitreya and Omega.  Fantastic!

I hope you get out there and enjoy the delights of fall!

This Is An 80’s Take On Me.

80's1

Hello again all my radical readers! I’m totally channeling the 80’s today. I was born in the 80’s, so was really too young to appreciate them while in them. Now though, I love everything about that decade, and when I received the Midnight Mania board gift from Tori’s Stylez, I was transported back in time. Do you like my A-Ha inspired picture? *grins*

80's3

OK, now that you all have seen a picture that really shows what I’m wearing, let me tell you about it. My super cute dress, and thigh-high boots are what you will get if the Midnight Mania board over at Tori’s Stylez gets it’s required 75 slaps. The Shirazz dress in pink is mesh, and comes in the standard SL sizes, as well as several mesh body sizes. It also has a texture change hud for that little striped peekaboo part of the dress, with loads of colour choices. The Sammi boots are also mesh, and come in sizes for several mesh bodies, but none specifically for standard SL avs. However, I found for my standard medium shape, the Isis sized boots fit perfectly! As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a set of grey panties included, both clothing layer, and through an omega applier. I know right! So much, and all for free 🙂

80's2

Naturally, I needed some jewelry, and it couldn’t be typical, it needed to be fun! While opening up the many gifts that I grabbed from the Liaison Collaborative‘s 3rd Anniversary round, I came across the simple, but totally not boring, necklace and earring set from Lybra. You get both a gold and silver set of these, and I think they are just the right amount of funky to live up to the 80’s image. Not everything has to be big, bold and neon coloured to pull off this look. This jewelry is free, and the Liaison Collaborative is open until March 30th, so if you haven’t been yet, you still have time!

My last addition is the pretty skin I have on. It is the current free group gift from AlterEgo for the Toxxic Design Studios group. Now, this group does have a L$500 join fee, but this is the second group gift I’ve gotten from them since I joined, with more to come, so I think it’s a small price to pay. Ayla comes in the rose tone, and if you need appliers, they are conveniently located underneath the poster, each for a small fee. I think the cat’s eye eyeshadow is perfect.

OK, before I head out, just wanted to give a shout out to my picture location. Sometimes it’s really hard to find a locale that works with whatever look I’ve put together, but I was lucky with Joystick’s Arcade. There is no denying its decade 😛 Most of the arcade games are even playable! If you love the 80’s, or arcades, you need to go take a look.

That’s it for me! I shall leave you all with my title 80’s song, you know you’ll want to sing along. Until I see you all again, TTFN!

I can be Kawaii…I think.

Hello FabFreebers! While I’m not 100% sure I know enough about what the word Kawaii means (I do know it means cute in Japanese, but of course there’s more to it than that), I find myself feeling that way today with my outfit. Heck, I’m not even sure how to pronounce it. Is it pronounced Ka-Why, or Ka-Whyee, like Hawaii? I do know that any time I hear the word, I see fun fashions, with pretty colours and there is usually a bow and or hearts involved somewhere. I think I have it nailed today!

kawaii1

It all started with my dress actually. I was checking out Sugar Button Boutique the other night, and while looking at their free group gifts to make sure I haven’t missed out on anything, I noticed that I had not picked up this cute Baby Doll Bow dress that was a special group gift edition. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and I just adore the big pink bow at the waist. It is so pretty and feminine. All you need to do to get this baby, is join the Sugar Button Boutique group, for free, and toss on the tag.

kawaii3

Naturally, I needed shoes. I know, I know, I always need shoes. LOL. I actually heard about this sweet iridescent gold pair from Alaskametro on their Facebook feed. There is a new Marketplace hunt going on, the Sofa Surfer’s hunt, until Feb 29th, and the Brilla heels are Alaskametro’s contribution. All you have to do, is go to their Marketplace store, HERE, and then start searching for the item ad that has the orange ‘buy now’ on it. While hunt prizes can be set at up to L$10, these classic pumps are L$0 for everyone. There are versions for SLink high, which I am wearing, TMP Ouch, Bellezza and Maitreya feet. While they are not hard to find, I won’t include the direct web page link…it is a hunt after all 😛 .

kawaii2

The last free addition to my Kawaii look, is the too-cute for words hair I have on. This fun, pig-tailed and long, Kizzy hair is the latest gift from Truth. If you are already in their subscribo, check your items folder, as you should already have it. If you are not subscribed, or maybe SL ate yours, no fear, just head on down to the Truth store, and you can buy the Kizzy hair for free. It is a full colour huds fatpack, and while you all know I usually go for the dark hair look, I could not resist going with pastels this time around. No matter your colour preference, you are covered.

So what do you think? With a few other cutesy additions to my outfit, do I have a Kawaii look happening? Should I have added anything else? You know, no matter what, I love it, and you really can’t beat the price for each item. So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

computer1

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

computer2

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

computer3

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

Holiday Selfies

Holiday SelfiesSo after the impromptu snowball fight the other day, I bet Love thought she’d got me showing up with a Rudolph nose and antlers for the photos of the Christmas group gift from Agapee. Really, she just looks darn adorable and the photos are great. There is so much emphasis on family around the holidays that it’s good to focus on friendships too. Friends are often every bit as important as family. These adorable dresses from Agapee were a perfect opportunity for us to dress up and take some photos. Sure, matching outfits may be a little silly, but who cares, that’s half the fun! The dress is fully mesh, including the arm-warmers, and there is a color change hud to change the shirt and skirt separately. Additionally the dress comes in several size/fit options for the perfect fit. The Agapee group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE with your group tag. This dress would be perfect for a holiday outing with friends, or a casual date!

Speaking of the cute glowing red nose and matching antlers Love has on, they are a recent subscribo gift from Hopscotch. You can get this cute holiday accessory for FREE just by heading over to Hopscotch and joining their subscriber. It really is cute and is perfect for adding some holiday fun to punch up your outfit and your photos.

Additionally, I stopped back by the White Elephant Fair for this pretty manicure set with matching rings from ZOZ. The whole love of nail polish is just part of my obsession with makeup! It spans both real life and Second Life. So that you can get a better look at the gift, I included a copy of the ad photo below. You’ll find this gift from ZOZ under the big Christmas tree at the White Elephant Fair for just 1 linden. Included in this pretty present are nail appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza nails, and a right and left version of the ring.

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

africa1

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

africa2

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items 🙂

africa4

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

africa3

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Hello, Sweetie

Once upon a time there was a Mad Man with a box….

Hello, Sweetie

If you’re a Doctor Who fan, like I am, you do not want to miss the “Who’s Who Hunt” from Madly Untamed Hunts! You only have until March 31st to find all thirty three prizes so let’s jump in. We have to start with the TARDIS. This is the TARDIS Closet from Fairy Angel Creations. The doors open and close to the familiar landing sounds. I’ve seen a lot of TARDIS  model on the grid and this is definitely one of the nicest!

And if you’re going to take a ride in the TARDIS you need to look spiffy. This is the female part of Beyond Persuasion Designs “Calling All Ponds” prize. The prize includes the boots, the tights and the tank. The male half of the prize includes jeans, shoes and a hoodie with ‘Come along, Pond’ printed on it. It’s so cute I almost modeled that instead of the girl’s gift!  But the hoodie would have covered up the necklace from Harambee Gwassi -Kenya Charity Shop’s ‘Time Lord’ jewelry set and I couldn’t have that. I just love the flowing Gallifrayen script!  The set comes with both necklace and earrings.

who_002

And of course I needed a Doctor so I dashed over to Hopscotch to play the “15 Jammy Dodgers and a Fez” Gacha  machine! I pulled a cute little Cyberman too. Hopscotch isn’t part of the Hunt but the Doctor plushie was too perfect not to include in this post.

The 1L Who’s Who Hunt runs until March 31st so don’t delay!
