Waiting for Christmas…

Only in My Socks_001

Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

The Chair…

Braver than you Believe_001

I stopped by to visit my friend, the one I mention frequently and who’s furniture I envied in my post {HERE}. (I’m pretty sure you can still get that table and screen and decor if you’re a member of the L’Homme group by the way.) And he had out a chair that I had to try out. Then he informs me he got it as a free gift at an event where almost every booth has a free gift out! Of course I demanded a shopping excursion. Was it too much that I asked him to hold my purse? (Good thing I don’t usually carry a purse in Second Life).

The Chair…

So we made our way to “Shop ‘Till You Drop” and I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed at all the displays of wonderful shopping pleasures. I picked up free gifts as my shopping buddy hemmed and hawed (because of course he’d already been there and got all the goods).

But he was patient and I got my much awaited free gift chair by Chic Buildings! It has seven great poses and is low prim too! I’m showing off the pose called “monkey” in the picture above. You don’t even need a group for the free gifts at the event. Just buy the gifts that are out for 0L!

Another POE gift!

Serena showed you a gorgeous free POE Hunt gift from Prism in her post {HERE} but there are two (yes two!) POE Hunt gifts at Prism if you look! The second one is this dress I’m modeling called Sparkles by Journey. You can pick it up as part of the Hunt for free too! It has a sparkly gold turtleneck collar and sexy split sides and includes a color change hud for versatility!

Dress body compatibility included:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I cannot believe July is almost to an end. It seems like the summer just began. I suppose that old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” really does ring true. I don’t know about ya’ll but I’ll be spending at least some of my Saturday picking up the last few July group gifts that I’ve yet to snag.

July at the EMPIRE

One of which is the July group gift at EMPIRE. I’ve been an EMPIRE fan for a long while now and I’m never disappointed in their group gifts. This month’s gift includes 2 pairs of these high wedge type heels with a cut out at the heel, laces at the ankle, and a peep toe. The shoes come in the deep red shade shown, and a shade of blue. Additionally there is a hud to change the tone of the metal bits between black, silver, and gold. The EMPIRE VIP group has a one time join fee of 500 lindens, however they do offer monthly gifts and there are currently a few previous gifts still available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

Leggings FTW

Next up, I am so glad I snagged these cute black leggings from Satus Inc. They are a current group gift available to all Satus Inc. group members. You’ll find this group gift on the table to the left as you enter the Satus Inc. main store. You will need to join the Satus Inc. group and wear the group tag before clicking the gift vendor. There is a one time join fee of just 25 lindens however there are always gifts and sales. Plus, I think these comfy leggings will make everyone’s bum look good!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), FitMesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

FREE Okami Tattoo

Finally, this nicely done tattoo is a current group gift at K-tarsis. This tattoo shop is a new-to-me shop and I’ll tell you there are some eye-opening photos decorating the store. Just be aware you’re in for a bit of tasteful nudity if you shop at K-tarsis. The decor aside, I’m super happy with this Okami gift tattoo. This is another group gift, so you will need to join the K-tarsis group before clicking the gift vendor. The K-tarsis Designs group is FREE to join, making this a totally FREE gift even for new group members. Also, this is a unisex applier tattoo with appliers for both male and female mesh bodies.

Appliers Included: Slink (female/male), Omega (female/male), Belleza (female/male), Maitreya, Signature

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Atom Bomb Baby

Atomic_001

I almost missed out on telling all you Fabulous readers about the Sn@tch 10th Anniversary Sale & Specials! It ends July 19th, so you still have a couple of days, and you don’t want to miss out! In addition to lots of extra ways to win free clothes, almost everything in the store (this does not include new releases, marketplace, or gift cards) is 50 – 75% off!

A Lucky, Unlucky Dip!

Extra prize winning machines have been set out at Sn@tch for this special week, including an Unlucky Dip… except that it’s lucky! It gives out a prize every single time!

I took a dive and came up with a free Sn@tch Skybox of Evil! This skybox is a Gothic skybox and is full-size and simply amazing. It even included decorating accessories such as a bed, candelabras, rugs, and a plant. The skybox itself was 81 prim, but for such a roomy and well textured skybox, that’s not bad! I took my picture in front of the window of the skybox… which was my favorite part!

New Lucky Letters!

Our wonderful Sn@tch creator has set out new Lucky Letter Board prizes and you can win lots of great prizes for free if your letter comes up! I won the Atom Bomb Baby Tank top for free when my letter came up! It comes in all the standard sizes, but I love that it is a fatpack of colors! You’ll have colors to match all your moods for free!

Matching pants!

Have you forgotten Sn@tch‘s new Freebie and Cheapie area? I had! I took a peak over there and snatched up these free Raji Floral leggings. These are mesh and come in all the standard sizes and for 0L I was able to get them in a fat-pack of colors. They matched my new free tank top too! I’m all set!

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

CAH TLB

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

Hello Fab Free’rs! Looking for a fun way to spend a little free time? Why not do the Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt! The Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt has been a widely recognized hunt in Second Life for a while now. Sadly, this is the last year the hunt will run. It’s been a minute since I did a hunt, and this farewell CAH with an Alice in Wonderland theme was too much to resist. Each prize on the hunt is just 5 lindens. I personally didn’t come across anything for the guys on this hunt, sorry gentlemen, but there are a few furniture and decor items along side the plethora of ladies clothing and accessories. I of course picked out a few favorites to share with you. The CAH will run from now until May 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get hunting.

The Cheshire Cat

Of all the Wonderland characters, the Cheshire Cat has always been my favorite, followed closely by The Hatter. The Cheshire Cat print dress and matching leggings Pru has on are the 5L CAH prize at The Little Bat. The dress and leggings can be worn together or separately. You also get a color change hud for the dress, there are 4 Wonderland themed prints to choose from, or you can pick from the 16 additional solid color options. The dress and leggings come in the following mesh sizes: standard, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody. The leggings come in standard mesh sizes also, and a TMP size.
CAH Prizes

Gotta Love a Messy Bun

I love an up-do with bangs. This messy bun hairstyle is the CAH prize at lock&tuft. Just find the cupcake and for 5 lindens you’ll get this cute style in a fatpack of color options. This hairstyle from lock&tuft also has the added feature of touch menu resizing.

Flutter Those Lashes

These playful feathery lashes are part of the CAH prize at ARTE. The lash applier hud works with Catwa heads only. In addition to these pretty purple lashes, there are 3 equally pretty everyday versions. This CAH prize like the others is also just 5 lindens.
CAH Tattoo

Wonderland Ink

Finally, this pretty full back tattoo is the CAH prize at Ripley Bay Tattoos. This 5 linden prize gets you the full tattoo in a full opacity, and a slightly faded version. The hud will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, eBody, and Omega compatible mesh bodies. Also included are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the Details:

Everything Has Its Wonders

Hazardous

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in therein to be content.” – Helen Keller.

Another dark exploration?

On my last sim hop in my post [Here] I explored a dark cafe. I failed to mention that while I was there snapping my pictures, there was a hospitable couple also there who chatted amicably with me — Mr. and Mrs. S.

The gentleman, Mr. S., asked to take my photo. I said sure. Later, to my surprise, a notice popped up in my Flickr feed that I had been tagged in a photo, and in case you are interested, the result of the mysterious Mr. S.’s photo can be found [Here]. I think it’s a rather flattering shot.

I was doing some skimming for group gifts and I came across an advertisement for em@il’s applier leggings. The style caught my eye and I wanted to put a look together. And long story short… I wanted something dark, because something in me was longing for the wonders of the darkness. Not in a negative way, but in the way one longs for silence before a band plays beautiful music. That’s how I ended up at Hazardous. (The sim you see in this post’s pictures.) It’s really a fabulous place to visit… but I don’t want to give away the secrets. You really must go there for yourself.

What do the leggings that inspired the look include?

The leggings are a FREE group gift from em@ail (the group is FREE to join) and there are quite a few very pretty past group gifts still out at em@il for you to check out while you are there picking up this one.

What you’ll be getting in the package: appliers for system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, TMP, Eve, Brazilia, Belleza, and KL. That’s a lot of versatility! You’re sure to find an applier for you!

Hazardous 2

Dangerous measures…

A girl has to have dangerous hair to go with dangerous curves (like those great leggings gave me). So when I saw the gift out at Sintiklia I made a beeline. Of course you better hurry too. Right now there are two ways to pick up this gift.

Want the Free to all hair?

If you want the Colors and Pastels version of this hair, you can pick it up as a free to all gift, no group required. Just pay 0L and it is yours. This is a limited time offer, and I hear that it will be gone by the time the week is out. Be sure to teleport to the shop and nab this one up from Sintiklia right away.

Want the fatpack?

You’ve got a little longer on this offer. If you join the group (the fee is 100L) you can pick up the fatpack (110 colors tint pack) … that’s a lot of hair… you can pick this hair up as a group gift. Keep in mind that it is a 4 in 1 hair. You get the rigged mesh back with 4 different bang options. It is also unisex. I’m including the vendor advertisement below to give you a better idea of what you are getting with this really terrific deal.

But put a bow on it.

I finished up my look with something a little softer. After all… I originally reminded you all that there is “wonder in darkness.” So I picked up the FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) at Baubles. This pretty pair of bow earrings that you can see in my close-up picture above is a nice touch to any outfit and comes with a color change hud with 4 metal options. Danger not included.

Until our next adventure! See you then.

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!
Coming soon to FabFree

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!
