Hello Dave :)

Snapshot_002So I asked my puppy on this fa fa fa fa freeeezing breezy day if he’d like to go for a walk. He declined the offer and told me to “call Dave”.  Who’s Dave you might ask?  Well I didn’t know either, so I  called out “HELLO DAVE?” to the search feature and was popped into the Hello Dave mainstore where I found myself a fun indoor project to keep me entertained – I can paint my nails!

This cute shop is filled with slink  nail appliers and other fun things.  On the wall near the landing point there is a FREE GIFT for all.  This gift is the Halloween Dresser Slink Nail Appliers.  This is a little different than most applier.  You rez the decorative vanity bottles out, and click on the shade you’d like.  It makes for a cute decoration too as you can see from the photo above.

Hello_Dave Gift

If you feel like  more of a selection for nail polish, join their inworld group for 75L and grab the previous VIP gifts on the wall.  There are approximately 100 nail polish huds in this gift!  Not even kidding!  100!

(Thank you To Tapika, who was actually the one to let me know about all of these free gifts at Hello Dave!)

You know… Any other day my dog would be dragging me to the door by my socks to go for a toodle, but when it’s cold, he’s just not interested.  Perhaps if he had a nice warm sweater and scarf like I do, he’d be more inclined!  You can pick up the NS::  Winter Outfit that I am wearing in this post at the new round of The Cosmo Sales Room that just started today for 70L!  This set includes the sweater, jeans, scarf and boots!

Lacey Days With Evie

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are all well and are having a great weekend so far! As you know, I’ve been plundering The Arcade Gacha for its goodies and being someone obsessed with furniture, its the perfect place to get some amazing items for the home. Today I am showing you some more gorgeous furnishings that you can find there as well as an amazing hunt prize from Lumae!

There are some amazing items available from Apple Fall and Scarlet Creative at The Arcade.. This gorgeous Old Roman Bed is one of the gacha items from Apple Fall and comes loaded with poses ready for you to use. It is a common item also so its easier to get than the rares! Hooray! The Gilt Picture Frame and the Dolly Lamp are also from Apple Fall and make beautiful additions to the room. I really love the natural wood of the Meribel Cabinet and Stool by Scarlet Creative and it fits well with the theme. The home itself is the Mirabel Home Rare prize from them and it is simply stunning, you will not be disappointed if you are lucky enough to win this! My little kitty friends that are curled on the bed are in the gacha by Fashionably Dead and come in various poses. They are the cutest little things ever!

The absolutely beautiful furniture in the picture below is all by Zaara and is available in their gacha also at The Arcade Gacha! I really fell in love with this set and I know you will too. The details are simply so sumptious and divine! I feel so glamourous!

Here you can see the oh so pretty Lacey Days Lingerie in white that is part of the prize for the Hello Titty Hunt 4 by Lumae. The Evie skin is also part of the hunt prize! I am wearing tone 4 – Honey, but it is also available in tone 7 – Truffle which is a darker tone that I will show below post. There is also a black version of the lingerie included! All of this is free and it also includes a modifyable shape as well as lots of applier options for both the skin and the lingerie!

Here you can see the Hello Titty 4 Hunt prize from Lumae in full, minus the shape included. I am wearing my own shape in these pictures aswell as the Lena Perky Mesh Body by Kitties Lair. There is a hint for the hunt that might help you .. the hint is “Sometimes people just want the moon on a stick!”

Happy hunting and gacha playing!

The World Is Your Oyster

Its The Arcade Gacha time again! Wooo! Its a task and a half to get into it or the Arcade Gacha Galley which is the alternative shopping area for the Arcade where you can scan your camera in to play the camera, but it sure is worth it!

There are so many great things in this round I almost fainted. One thing you can always count on at this event is that if you love interior design then you are going to find a treasure trove of amazing furniture and knick knacks to decorate your home. One of my hobbies is changing the decor of my home on a regular basis. I thought I would take a break away from my usual fashion posts to show you some of the great home furnishings you can find here! Full details are at the bottom of the post.

I always like having a little office area.. and the Workspace set from Tres Blah at The Arcade Gacha, really fits the bill perfectly. All the tiny details are divine and are quite close to my own little work area in my real life home so that is probably why I love this so much. The super comfy Florian Chair is by ISPACHI and is part of their Gacha along with the Florian Pink Trunk and the Picture Frame on the right wall. While the fun slouchy cow fabric chair is the Malmo chair by What Next and can be found in lots of colours in their Gacha machine.

Below is a close up of the desk items. Everything on the desk except the Tarot Cards and the Chatter Teeth are by Tres Blah. The cards and Chatter Teeth are by SORGO at The Arcade Gacha and are part of the Dusty Attic set of items they have in their Gacha. The little Enigma Machine on the floor that the kitty by Fashionably Dead is interested in, in the first picture, is also by SORGO and is the rare item in the Gacha.

All details are below the dotted line! The credits are a little different to how I usually list things but hopefully it will be easier to read this way as more than one item by one designer is grouped together. You can take a look at more items that are available by visiting the shopping guide on The Arcade Website.

All items are under L$75 in this post!

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. 😦 But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! 🙂 My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

Wicked Peach Advert Wicked Gift

Blogging soon!

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! 😀

A Writer’s Retreat

Snapshot

Not many of you may know it, but I am a stay at home mom, and an author as my day job in real life. That is why I absolutely fell in love with this set from Aisling that is currently available at the arcade. I haven’t gotten quite lucky enough to collect the entire set, but the nice thing about The Arcade, is you have all month long to try again, and even trade with others for those few “must have” items that you are still missing. I think I have now found my new favorite spot in SL! My upstairs hallway.

Desk: Aisling – BricABrac Gacha – Desk @ The Arcade (50L Per Play)

Desk Chair:  Aisling – BricABrac Gacha – Desk Chair @ The Arcade (50L Per Play)

The Four Walls Hunt!

How I didnt know about this hunt is beyond me considering I am obsessed with furnishings in SL.. but the Four Walls Hunt is the perfect place to get some Christmassy and Wintery themed furnishings to decorate your home with.

Now, unfortunately Im so late in getting this written about, you only have until the 15th to snap up these items, which only leaves a few days. I’ve been working my little socks off to get this up as soon as I could! Thankfully though its a short hunt so you should have plenty of time to get what you want.

Each item is L$20 to purchase and you are searching for a crate of baubles which is shown in the picture below. The hunt is relatively quick and the prizes are quite easy to find!
