Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekendūüôā. ¬†I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.¬†¬† I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.¬† I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!¬†¬†I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised¬†when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…¬† I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

Previous Peace on Earth Hunt 9 Coverage on FabFree:

  1. Dreaming of Peace on Earth by Carson Caiben
  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Bringing Home The Tree

Bringing Home the Tree
Hello there, Fab Free! ¬†Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window. ¬†Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes. ¬†“OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears. ¬†All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously. ¬†I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!

Crimson Concoction

The other day, as Rip and I sought out¬†our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion. ¬†In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted¬†a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit. ¬†Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress. ¬†As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley! ¬†This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf. ¬†Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down¬†our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off¬†the winter chill.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fit mesh
  • Fit mesh scarf

Life is Better in Boots

You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest¬†wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear. ¬†I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals. ¬†Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store. ¬†Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options. ¬†You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately. ¬†They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required. ¬†To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here. ¬†With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.

Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way. ¬†Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple? ¬†My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess. ¬†I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree. ¬†Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

I Need A Lift!

Snapshot_002
Hey Fabulouses, I need a lift!¬† My car broke down in what appears to be a zombie infected area.¬† At least I am stranded in style, thanks to Siss Boom¬†who put out¬†this hot Velour Top as a new addition to their huge group gift wall.¬† This group does have a¬†group fee of 500L, but you won’t be disappointed in the current group gift offerings and you’ll be able to pick up¬†new gifts as they come along too.¬† You’ll find plenty of fab gifts to make up the fee in no time.

About my hot Velour Top…

The Siss Boom Velour Top in black fits like a glove to my mesh Maitreya body, but does come with an alpha layer if you need it for the system body.  I think it makes a great clubbing top, or even as a top for cool apocalyptic look.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Mesh XXS-L

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!

Hi there Fabulouses!¬† As I was updating the FabFree Holiday Advent Listing (no.. it’s not quite done yet – still working on it and I will be sure to announce when it’s ready!)¬†over the last couple of days, I was in the mood for a little taste of Christmas.¬† It was perfectly timed that Zenith put out a new¬†holiday themed¬†group gift, as it was just what I needed to complete my look.

Midnight Magpie

Midnight Magpie

Hello Fab Free…we did it!! ¬†Ripley and I had been pursuing¬†her for days, traveling stealthily to the Flawless sim, tapping the Midnight Mania board, and waiting, patiently waiting. ¬†Then, it happened – ¬†we finally caught the elusive Thieving Magpie!

A Prize Worth Waiting For

When Rip and I traveled to Entice¬†to win the Be With You dress featured in my post [HERE], we spotted The Thieving Magpie (another¬†free Midnight Mania prize), but we weren’t successful in our first attempt at victory. ¬†I’m glad we returned to try again, because she’s a real beaut! ¬†A stunning shade of aquamarine, Magpie features three-quarter length sleeves, a fitted, ribbed bodice in¬†a slightly darker hue than the satiny main fabric, and a short, flared skirt. ¬†The Midnight Mania board where you can win this flirty dress happens to be for Entice group members only, but the group is free to join. There are also multiple group-only lucky boards with sweet, free prizes available very close by, so joining the group will yield a number of gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for classic avatars
  • Appliers for: ¬†Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya

Brazilia Shoes

Finishing Touches

I wanted something elegant, yet uncomplicated, to accent my outfit, so I added Dusk Angel Design’s Simplicity Necklace in aquamarine. ¬†The center gemstone echoed the tint of my frock perfectly, while still allowing it to remain center stage. ¬†My long, braided hair, Dakota, is from Wasabi Pills. ¬† I scooped it up quite awhile ago as part of Fifty Linden Fridays, but you can purchase it in the store with a greater variety of colors than I have, for Wasabi Pill’s regular price. ¬†I love the loose braid with wispy tendrils of hair framing either side of my face. ¬†Next, I donned some strappy, Brazilia sandals from KC Couture¬†(these 75L shoes come with a customization HUD with 30 textures!), then followed Ripley to the picturesque sim, A Painter’s Link. ¬†There, he introduced me to some tiny¬†ducklings he had befriended. ¬†I pulled out my phone, and snapped a few pictures as they waddled up to their mini pond in the washtub. ¬†Aren’t they just adorable?!

A Magpie Among Ducklings

I hope today’s outfit has inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own. ¬†Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

A “Secret” Meant to be Shared

So much to be thankful for

Happy Thursday, Fab Free, and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Fabulouses living in the United States who celebrate this holiday! ¬†Today has me thinking about all that I am grateful for – my family and friends in RL, my pets, my SL friends and fellow bloggers, and YOU, wonderful readers. ¬†Your support, comments, likes, and messages truly brighten my days! ¬†Being able to share my adventures with Ripley, and the Fabulous Finds we put¬†together has been a fantastic experience. ¬†I feel so blessed to be part of this supportive, friendly community…so thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the amazing people you are!

Quiet Moment

A Surprising Dress Discovery

After viewing Sheidey’s mesmerizing eyes featured in her post [HERE], Rip and I moseyed over to Dulce Secrets to have a look around. ¬†In addition to gorgeous make up, alluring eyes, and sultry skins, the pupster sniffed out this beautiful Ines dress, which is a free group gift. ¬†It features a strappy, figure hugging, sheath-style frock, with a sweetheart neckline, and a playful, asymmetical hem that reaches below the knees. ¬†The gift also contains¬†a short, dark chocolate colored jacket with three-quarter length sleeves, and an interesting texture variation across the shoulders in the back. ¬†The warm tone of the bolero complements the softly faded blue of the dress beautifully. ¬†Best of all, the Dulce Secrets group is completely free to join!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L and XL for classic avatars
  • Jacket applier for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus

Sugar and Spice

Sugar and Spice and Accessories Nice

As Love stated in her post [HERE]¬†(in which she featured this newest gift from Truth Hawks), with jacket, scarf, and sweater season upon us, we all need a versatile hairstyle that won’t interfere with our outfits. ¬†After reading Love’s post, I looked through the group notices for the Truth VIP group, and picked up the latest gift, Sugar. ¬†This cinnamon¬†hued, sweet bun with wispy tendrils¬†(my spice for the day) was the perfect style for my new outfit. ¬†I slipped on Janice heels from Moda, and the sapphire Sarai jewelry set from Krystal Fine Jewelry, then headed over to the Bella Pace sim for some quiet moments before traveling over to my parent’s house¬†in RL to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my family.

Thank you for reading!  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping.
