Smiles on a Cloudy Day

Little by Little

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It has been a number of cold, gray, rainy days in a row where I am in RL, so I guess that influenced my selection of outfit and location for today’s blog post.  With a couple of lamps to guide our way, Ripley and I set out to explore the snowy It All Starts With a Smile sim. Rip never has to worry about getting the chills with his luxurious fur coat, and lucky for me, with my cozy knitted outfit and scarf from VIPs Creations, I stayed toasty warm all day as well!

Nothing Goes Together Like Winter and a Sweater

Unless of course it’s a knitted skirt, fleecy scarf, and a sweater!  My entire outfit today from my shawl to my shoes is a free group gift for members of the VIPs Creations group, which by the way, is free to join!  I just love it when I get a complete outfit all in one swoop!  The soft, woolen, long-sleeved sweater wrapped my arms in comfort, while its cropped waistline offered a sexy peek at my midsection.  Just so we could keep snuggly warm, the generous designer tucked a black scarf in the package to drape around our necks.  It resizes with just a touch, so you can adjust it as needed for your avatar.  A thick, knitted gray skirt which fell to just above my knees, perfectly coordinated with the hue of my top, and rounded out my outfit.  Finally, before setting out with Ripley, I slipped on the Cecilia shoes, which are also included as part of the gift.   These leather high heels are packed with details such as three buckles and delicate knotted laces.  They were the perfect footwear to shield my toes from old Jack Frost.  If you would love to capture this sweet, stylish complete outfit for yourself, head on over to VIPs Creations, join the group if you’re not a member already, then tap the gift board.  There’s also a men’s group gift up for grabs, but since Ripley already sports a fluffy winter coat, he opted out (not to mention the fact that he’s a canine!).  I can’t say I blame him….he’s pretty cute just the way he is!

What’s Included:

  • Cecilia Shoes for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya
  • Skirt in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Top in Standard Fitmesh Sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Black Scarf

Sunny Days Ahead…. (I Hope!)

I think Ripley and I have had enough rain and gray skies to fill us up for quite some time.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you sunshine and happy shopping!

Safe With You

westendffgroupgift

Hi there Fabulouses!  Carson (aka Muscles – rawr) was kind enough to take one for the team and snuggle up to me for a bit so I could get a snapshot to show off the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift that has been generously donated by [ west end ] .  Normally on FabFree you see us showing off free clothing or home items, but today what we are actually showing you is the pose!

About the pose…

The [ west end ] Safe With You Couples Pose is very well made with natural positioning, and is modifiable so that you can adjust the pose balls around making a good fit.  This pose would be fab for bloggers, photographers or anyone wanting to capture a cozy moment with someone special!  If you’d like a free copy of this beautiful embrace, simply adjust your Fabulously Free in SL group tag above your head and TP to [ west end ] to obtain one!

Carson’s Take

While Carson was waiting for me to make my bazillion photography adjustments to get my one and only shot, he managed to snap a few photos as well that show off different angles of the pose… evidently before I even had a chance to get my lipstick on or his vest off (and never mind why I needed his vest off….  There was interference!)!

Below is one of his photos featuring a full body shot, and if you’d like to know what Carson is wearing, you can see his credits [HERE].

An Apologetic Spot

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulous Readers!  I have finally come up with a name for my mischievous little pup.  I have decided to call him Spot…  and it’s not because he is covered in spots…  It’s because he can’t sit in one for very long.  I’m allowing him to suck up to me now for the shoes he chewed up last night.  I’ll be TPing to redelivery boards all day! (If only it were that easy in RL!).  Thankfully I had picked up a new pair last night that were still in the box that he couldn’t get into!

The shoes that were safe…

Pure Poison is hosting a huge 70% off sale that runs until January 1st, 2017 and also has placed out a new free group gift!  After you activate your Pure Poison group tag which is free to join, you can pick up the Miss Klaus Pumps in black with white socks.  If you want these playful pumps in more colours, you can purchase the 14 colour HUD system for just 99L!  I think these would be cute year round with the right outfit!

Pure Poison - Miss Klaus Pumps AD- Group GIFT and Christmas SALE -70% OFF

The hair I am going to pull out if Spot eats one more pair of my shoes…

I really hope it doesn’t get to that point, because I quite like the Kelly hairstyle that I snagged as a free group gift at Entwined in a full fatpack of colours.  There are several group gifts on the wall at the entrance – some of which have been blogged on FabFree before [HERE] and [HERE].  This group is also free to join, so it doesn’t hurt a bit to pick them up and see if they suit you.

Collect those coupons…

My outfit today is by Addams and is a brand new release – that I purchased with a discount!  I am wearing the turtleneck, Pleated Skirt and Cardigan from her new Mesh Hipster line.  Normally on The FabFree Blog, we show under 75L finds, but I wanted to share this little bit of Addams news because it’s a sweet deal…  and kinda fun!

Basically how it works is, you TP to the Addams shop, activate your free inworld group tag and click the gift boxes by the entrance.  By doing this you will receive a folder filled with five random discount coupons (between 5% – 50%) that you can use on purchases in the store.  You can collect a folder of coupons every day until December 30th (up to 5 visits) and use these coupons until January 31st!

While you are there make sure you check out the wall of group gifts behind the Christmas Tree too!

Her Blahness

Snapshot_004Hello FabFree Readers!  As much as I love red.. and even green on occasion, I am getting a little tired of wearing red and green, and green and red!  I was really happy to find a couple of free gifts that were still holiday themed, but in different colours.  Today… I’m in black, gold and red!

Starting with my boots…

These very well made winter boots by Fri.day are red, black white and gold and are free (priced at 0L) under the giant Christmas Tree at The Arcade.  They are compatible with my Maitreya Lara body (I’m sure they’ll work with whatever you are wearing!), and include an alpha layer for those on the system body too.

My Nutcracker Pants!

I picked up these awesome Nutcracker Pants by Sn@tch for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  These are compatible with system bodies and include an OMEGA applier.  A texture change HUD is included for several different colours, but I went with coal, because it showed the gold nutcracker design down the sides of the legs best. As Kathryn mentioned in a previous post…  if you are trying to stuff your pants into a pair of boots, appliers are really the way to go!
Tres Blah December 2016 Group Gift

Her Blahness

If you like my sweatshirt, you should head on over to Tres Blah and slap on your “Her Blahness” tag above your head to pick up the Olsen Winter Sweatshirt as a free group gift in five different fun prints!  Arrows are my jam, but as you can see from the Tres Blah vendor ad to the left, the other prints are super cute too!

Sizes included:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique

This group will set you  back 100L, but there are several other group gifts to pick up like these [HERE] and [HERE], making it well worth the join fee!

Put on a holiday sweater…

I stopped in at trs recently to see what was new there, and noticed that there are a couple of free holiday group gifts to pick up when you join their free inworld group.  One of the gifts is this gorgeous fitted winter sweater.  I love the deep green and red used on the texture as it gives it a more classic feel, and the reindeers are pretty cute ;).

Sizes included:

  • Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

Why are my cheeks so rosy?

My red nose and winter kissed cheeks are courtesy of Nanika as I picked up their Frosty Blush Catwa Applier as a free ON9 group gift at this round of ON9.  This particular round of ON9 has free group gifts in almost every display (little gold presents), and the group is free to join too which makes it a great stop for freebie hunting a there are LOADS!

Back to work for me – enjoy your day!

Snapshot_005

Hello Fabulous Readers! I have returned to tell you about another brilliant Women Only Hunt 2 prize that I recently picked up!  I might as well… the weather is minus a billion and it’s dumping snow all over the place.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Don’t worry…  Environment Canada ensures me it will warm up in 7 days! [Click to see a funny video about weather in Canada]

Speaking of snow…  It’s Snowing At Petite Mort

Petite Mort is participating in the WOH2 this year and has a gorgeous silvery periwinkle dress for you as a FREE prize once you locate the hidden snowflake hunt icon.  This is a tricky one and it took me a while to find it, but as you can see…  It’s worth the challenge!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

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!

She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.
