It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

Corn-Dog Hustler

Corndog
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t mind telling you I had a wonderfully lazy weekend so far. I hope yours has been just as awesome. Speaking of awesome, I am excited to share the several gifts I used to create this look. I’d struggle to tell you what my exact personal style is, I’m a little bit pin up, a little bit goth, and a little bit grunge. Ha! This look definitely matches my eclectic tastes, I hope you like it as much as I do.

Corn Dog

There’s something wonderful about food in Second Life. You can enjoy anything and everything without any negative affects. Fair food like this corn dog from Label Motion has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s terrible for you, but oh so good! Now you can enjoy a corn dog and have zero guilt. This fun prop is a FREE subscriber gift from Label Motion. I did have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get the gift, but the minimal effort was well worth it. In the gift you’ll get a mustard version (one whole, one half eaten), and a ketchup version (also whole or half eaten).  I think it makes for a super cute photo prop.

The Hustler

Pink Hustler has several group gifts out right now, the most recent of which is this super adorable bandanna hairstyle. No pin-up girl wardrobe would be complete without it. Not to mention it’s one of those styles that can dress up or be very casual. The gift includes the hairstyle and two color change huds. The huds also include several floral textures for the bandanna.

While picking up the group gift hairstyle at Pink Hustler, I also snagged a copy of the bento nails group gift that is still available. These extra long claws are seriously cute. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick colors for every other nail, or you can choose to color them all the same. There are quite a few polka dotted color options in bright summery colors. There’s also a cute little bow on the left ring finger that has separate color options. These bento nails by Pink Hustler come in a Maitreya fit only. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 350 linden. As I mentioned before, there are several past gifts still available including the two shown here today!

A Little Side Note: Pru is also wearing a few past group gifts that had been previously blogged but are still available! The top is a FREE group gift at Vinyl (group is FREE to join) which was originally blogged by Love here. The eye makeup is also a FREE (group is 100L to join) group gift from Slack Girl previously blogged by me here.  

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

My Ruby Slippers 2

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

My Ruby Slippers 3

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new-to-me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe. 🙂

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for 😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day! ❤

Have Mercy

Have Mercy

Have mercy! I’m definitely in love with the group gift from Entice! Don’t miss out on the current group gift from Entice. This gift is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the dress, but that will be immediately refunded to you, making the dress absolutely FREE. In return, you’ll be getting the Time for Mercy dress in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Belliza, and Slink fits, with 3 colors on a color change hud. It’s a gorgeous gift.

Have Mercy 2

Have you stopped by Ecco yet? If you have 200L to spare for a group and love Jewelry, this group is well worth your linden. I showed you the April gift HERE, and also mentioned that lots of past group gifts were out. I wasn’t kidding. In the picture above, I’m showing you the July 2015 gift… the Aureole Necklace (there are matching bracelets in the box as well). This pretty set includes a color change hud with 7 color choices.

I also wanted to show you the latest FREE gift from Hello Dave. The group is FREE to join. Pretty manicures are always a nice pick me up, and the latest group gift is pretty sweet. This one is called “Just So” and is a set of reverse french manicures in pastel colors. You get 5 colors on the palette.

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach

Paper.arrow has out several beautiful new gifts that are well worth visiting their store for. I decided to pick up the lovely beach shorts and show them to you, though there is a wall display with cute new gifts that are all FREE with your group tag. The group tag will set you back a one time fee of 250L, but there are quite a few gifts out for that fee to make it worth your linden.

My cute shorts include all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and Belleza fits. Plus they are two pieces… the little floral inset is a separate part. So if you feel daring, you don’t have to wear that part! Also on the wall of gifts was a spring floral dress, a pair of lovely plum flip flops, a pair of sporty shorts, and a cute pair of jogging pants!

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach 2

I also felt like I scored gold with this FREE hair from Besom! If you wear your Besom group tag (the group is FREE to join) and slap the Midnight Mania board (get there early if you can, it’s been locking down pretty fast), you’ll score this beautiful fatpack of hair called Kiwi! I love the flowing mesh locks in this kick-back, care-free style!

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach 3

Last but not least… Pure Poison has a new group gift gacha out! Just wear your FREE group tag and score a FREE spin on the group gift gacha for a chance at one of 14 commons or the rare! These shoes fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, or Belleza feet!
