Hiya, adding some sparkle & shine for your New Years’ celebrations, for not a lot of Lindens.

After Christmas SALE!

One of my favorite creators Salt & Pepper is having a New Year Clearance Sale. 80% discount on selected items. That is like WOW. The sale runs from Dec. 27th – Jan. 3rd. Of course, you say sale, and Jacx runs right to it, LOL. Today’s find from the sale is the Salt & Pepper Gloria skirt. This sparkly a-line skirt is simple yet so elegant. Besides the gold shown, there are 9 other colors to choose from. Now comes the very best part, the price of the skirt is 40L. If you really like the skirt like I do, the fatpack is only 200L. So pop over to Salt & Pepper, and look around at all the wonderful sale items, you will be so glad you did.

Winter Wonderland
Hiya, got a hot one for you, Let’s dive into some hunting and decor!

Say Hello To My New Friends

Like all us Fabfree folks, I like free. And for umpteen years now, the best free spot in SL is, of course, Free Dove. You just can’t beat this deal, for a free group space, you get introduced to new creators without the bite to the wallet. Not that I can remember just how I got to know Free Dove, I would imagine it was via our own Fabfree Blog. And since that time I have been referring all the noobies, I see there. LOL. A bonus perk of this fab group is the monthly hunts. For just a tad bit of your time, you can pick up 10 items from the hunt for free. And they sure pack the hunt with goodies! This month there are 3 creators to hunt for, that’s 30 free items. Woohoo to that. Jacx is modeling the free Tastic Ella Sweater, so cute with its winter pattern in sweet pink & off-white color. You can wear it as a dress or like Jacx a big sloppy sweater with leggings, just right for cleaning up after Christmas day. Drop over to Free Dove, look around, join the free group, hunt you up some awesome clothes. The hunt runs till Dec. 31st, so you still have a bit of time to work on making room in your inventory for more goodies. 🙂

Goodbye Snowbound

Yay!  Raindale is free to join for the holidays! This is a big saving, a truly great group, with an extremely generous and all-around super nice creator Kiera. And the bonus is a lot of group gifts just waiting for you to decorate with.  In my post, I used the whimsical topiary tree and fairy grass to create this lovely winter scene.

That’s a wrap for today. See you all soon 🙂

Accessorize

Accessorize
Hiya, this is going to be a real mish-mash post. But there really is a method to the madness. At least I hope there is LOL.

All About The Accessories

According to “Dictionary.Com” Well-dressed women accessorize according to the occasion. With Fabfree in my corner all these years, I feel Jacx can qualify to be called a well-dressed woman. What is the occasion today you ask? Why very very shortly The Fabfree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt will be starting. And I am giving you a sneak peek at one of the gifts. First off to accessorize you need a base to work with. Stylish and beautiful the Entice Mockingbird 1 piece dress in gold ticks all the right boxes for me, with a mock turtleneck, slit skirt with a ruffle, which will make this a versatile addition to your wardrobe. This free dress is available at The Makeover Room as a group gift. The Makeover Room Group is free to join.

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Sneak Peek

This is the part where I go on and on about shoes. LOL. For a change of pace, this will be about how much I love accessories. Scarfs, gloves, handbags, and even animals, but most especially hats. And it was jackpot time in the hat department with Grasshopper St. Porkpie Hat, covered in heathered brown fabric, with a green tartan band and bow. Two small hawk feathers are tucked into the hatband. This description of the hat from owner and creator Mitra Ardwyad beautifully describes it much better than I could. This is one of 3 gifts from Fabfree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt. For 3L this hat can be yours. When I was saying even animals can be an accessory, Jacx was gifted the wonderful Jian Snowday St. Bernard Adult, from a sweet and generous friend. This puppy does not carry booze, just emergency coffee 😛

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone…
RPH5-#27(69 Park Ave)

This is for all the Fab Free guys out there who think Menstuff and Make Him Over are the only hunts where men can find high quality, free or nearly free items.  Love, Xia and Xiu have been blogging The Runway Perfect Hunt #5 gifts.  Yes it’s true that most of the 51 stops on it have female gifts, but a couple of them have men’s prizes.  Today I’m showing you two gifts guys can pick up from RPH5, plus a couple of other freebies.

The Cayman outfit in sandstone is from 69 Park Ave GQ and features a jacket layer shirt, brown mesh pants, and dress shoes – a complete outfit for only $5L.  It’s a nice casual outfit for an evening out or at home with your lady.  And while you’re looking around the store for the gift be sure to check out the group gift. 69 Park Ave GQ gives out nice ones and they change frequently, so it’s well worth the small joining fee to get them.  The pose is one of five male poses offered by KaTink in the RPH5.

The Sequel to Room 326 – Cry of the Peacock Hunt

CryofThePeacock_A

Hello all my Fabulous Friends….

Have you heard the Peacock cry?

Well, the last couple of days I’ve been doing the latest Madpea Hunt, “Cry of the Peacock“.  They say that when a Peacock cries… it rains… well, it is POURING in Mad City.   Our job is to be the brave detective that frees the victims trapped souls. (The victims of the are the people from the prior hunt…. “The Room 326 Hunt” I wrote up this hunt before in my post “Returning to Room 326…“. This hunt is still going on as well…. Read my former posting to get all those great gifts along with this ones…. )

“How do we do this hunt Care?” You might be asking yourself….

Teleport to “Mad City  – Silent Peacock Hotel” , there you will see a phone stall on the wal to your left… It looks like this…

Cry of the Peacock Hunt HUD Vendor

This is the Hunt HUD Vendor for this hunt…  (NOTE: This hunt hud costs L$ 100, but once you see the prizes you will most likely be willing to spend that 😉 )

When you wear your newly acquired HUD it will open up with a note from Madame Peacock…..

HUD opened….

What you need to accomplish to finish this hunt and claim the prizes….

Complete the sheets of music
Find the code to the Police Station safe
Locate the missing posters in the City
Match the posters with the police file
Find items belonging to the victims
Oh and free the victims, dont forget that 😉

Cute Winter Things I Like

Snapshot_002Hi again!  I have  a hodgepodge of cute holiday treats to share with you tonight 🙂  They are from all over the grid, so I hope my post isn’t too confusing about where to find this stuff!  The sweet and innocent looking mesh Flurry Dress can be found at Loovus Dzevavor hidden in the Peace On Earth Hunt 5 icon which is a globe.

My Christmas Kitty Hat is made by CandyMetal and is the latest free group gift at Acid Lily.  It also comes with a Christmas Lady shoulder cape, but it was interfering with the mesh dress I am showing today.  Perhaps I’ll find something to wear it with soon to show you.  It would be perfect to wear with a non-mesh top.  Go check it out – so cute!  The group is free to join, and there are still a ton of other gifts available sitting around the fashion gallery rooms.

The Even.flow Mrs. Santa Clause Mittens (free gift) and Things I Love Snowman Bag (1L) are both available at the Winter Wishes Market along with tons of other gifts under 10L!  These boots aren’t free, but they are worth a mention because they are a must have in your inventory this winter!    These Multi-Change Uggs are made by Things I Like and they come with a hud that allows you to change the texture to several different shades / prints making them perfectly matched to any outfit!  These are featured at the Winter Wishes Market for 99L.

IzziesnordicleggingsThese cozy looking nordic leggings are Izzie’s group gift for December and they are available in four prints.  The group is 250L to join, but there are always generous monthly gifts!

Whew…  are you still with me?  I have one more thing to share…  The Christmas Scene you see is actually a background box that is perfect for photographers or bloggers in SL.  You can pick this up at Katink for the Peace On Earth Hunt 5 – just find the hidden globe!

Demonia… devil is a woman

I’ve been away for a bit consumed by RL, but sneaked in to show you the devilishly sexy gift at PurpleMoon.  The Demonia Halloween costume is free for PurpleMoon group members.  There is a L$50 enrollment fee to join PurpleMoon.  The Livia “devil is a woman” skin is the newest group gift for Al Vulo members.  It is free to join the Al Vulo group.  I also picked up the Classic Gen4 Orental Pearl eyes from Poetic Colors.

Diesel Works is giving 14 Olivia poses free throughout October.  The spooky cemetery background is part of a fatpack that was given to KaTink members along with a studio.
