Blooming in the Depth of Winter

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as some blooms in the middle of winter.  When you think about how outside (at least in my part of the world) is cold and barren, with many months to go until things start to poke their heads out of the earth, it is comforting to think that you can grow some pretties indoors.  And if you don’t have a green thumb, virtual blooms will do just fine!

Cozyfest Continues

Yesterday, I told you about the 50L items you can pick up at Cozyfest, but today I’m showing off some of the free gifts that are just as delightful.  To get these gifts, just join the Fifty Linden Fridays group for free, and click on the box located at each stall. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE dress by CandyDoll sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya & V-Tech
  • FREE lollipop by Lyrium
  • FREE flowers and table by Kraftwork

It’s all just so lovely!  What a fab event.  It’s still quite busy, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair –  you have until February 4th.

Keep on blooming, FabFree!

Aline in Paris

Aline in Paris

There are days where I feel oddly like a character in a TV show that wears one of those wonderful outfits that are completely impractical in RL.  For instance, have you been watching Emily in Paris?  I’ll forgive you if you haven’t – it’s one of those delightfully ridiculous romps filled with strange stereotypes…but if you can get past that and just enjoy it for the frivolity, then you can have a bit of fun.  Anyway, her outfits give me a bit of a pang of jealousy, but then I remember that my SL closet is just a bit more extensive than hers…

A Piece of The Pie

There are new lucky boards at Pink Cream Pie!  These boards never fail to delight me since they move so quickly, AND there are separate boards for letters and numbers, which is such a breath of fresh air.  There are five new pieces, including the lovely dress I’ve got on, each in several different colours in shiny, satin-like textures.  To take part, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L, and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are lots of gifts in this group, plus you get 100L of store credit every month.  Super worth it!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Hats Off to You

Fifty Linden Friday is in full swing, and I’m totally excited about this lovely hairstyle courtesy of Wasabi.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, plus several different colours for the beret.  Of course, FLF items usually disappear around midnight (sometimes you’ll find them a few days later, but it’s not guaranteed), so head on over ASAP to pick up this beauty for 50L.

Have a great weekend Fabbies!

Asher

Asher

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

No Shivers Required

No Shivers Required

A metaphorical shiver runs down my spine as as I write this post, my dear readers!  Don’t worry, before you all think I’m about to expire from exposure, You’ll all be happy to know that there is indeed a firepit at my feet keeping me toasty.  Plus I have a massive sweater…and I’m Canadian.  So all in all, I am safe from frostbite!

Hearty

The season of all things pink and covered with hearts is creeping towards us (and I am SUPER excited about it).  Over at Reed, they’re totally ready for some V-Day action with their latest group gift:  The top and shorts combination I’ve got on.  They can be worn separately so if you’re not in the mood for hearts quite yet, you’ve got a sweet pair of shorts to go with pretty much anything.  The Reed group is free to join and there are lots of really nice gifts to pad your inventory with.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

A Long Winter’s Nap

A Long Winter's Nap

The snow just keeps falling and I’m ready for a long winter’s nap.  Maybe one that lasts all the way until spring…hmm… Fine, I’ll caffeinate and stay awake for as long as I can muster.  Though a cozy outfit always helps!

Baby it’s Cold Outside!

It’s time to take part in the Baby it’s Cold Outside Hunt!  There are lots of winter-themed items on this fun hunt.  Some are 1L (like the two items I’m showing off today) and some cost more.  You’ll find all the details on their site HERE.  I headed over to The Bold Llama for this anti-social tank top, which is totally up my alley right now (I am staying away from humans….oof).  I paired it with the cute little boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes in a nice snowy white colour (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP and Classic).  You never know what else you’ll find on this hunt (well…check out their page and then you will know!)

Top Sizes

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • eBody

  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin

In the houses of the old gods

In the houses of the old gods

Hilsener, FabFree!  Modern Norwegian may not be Old Norse but it sure sounds cool. And it fits right in with my Norse inspired mood today. Of course it’s 25L Tuesday too and there just happens to be two perfect additions to my Viking attire.

First, my dress. This is “Skadi” from Mansken. You get the bodice with the beautiful runic designs on it and the attached skirt which can be one of  six colors. This is going to be perfect for one of my RPs and I can’t wait to show it off!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Next is my new necklace. The “Protection” necklace is from Angelicus. It comes sized for men but it’s easily resized to fit just about anyone. Angelicus has two other women specific necklaces for the sale as well.

As with all 25L Tuesday goodies, some designers leave them up for a bit and some disappear the second the clock strikes midnight tonight. So if you need to ‘go aviking’  hurry over!

Artfully Done

Artfully Done

Nothing like a Tuesday artistic interlude.  One of the best things about SL is always being able to switch up your interiors, your exteriors, and who knows what else.  I love decorating in Second Life, though sometimes it becomes rather time consuming and I have to take a step back before I lose my mind.  An easy way to change things up without pulling out all your hair is always through artwork, and I think I have just the place for you if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration…

First Things First

It’s all about the clothing for me in SL, most days, some of which is definitely wearable art.  I’ll first tell you about where I picked up this stunning sparkly dress!  Head on over to Posh Event, and there you’ll find that several of the designers have put out free gifts for everyone.  No need to join a group, just buy the gift for 0L.  I grabbed this cool dress (what a slit!) over at the Luna Chelsea booth (it comes with a rather extensive HUD, and also a little ribbon belt too), but there are quite a few other gifts too if you’re looking for more goodies.  The Posh Event runs until January 23rd!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Museum Visit

It’s always fun to discover new places in SL, and I was contacted about the Free Museum, which is exactly what it purports to be:  a museum filled to the gills with free artwork.  Yep, you can even take it all home with you.  Just buy the artwork for 0L, and put it up wherever your heart desires.  There are even statues so you can go full Guggenheim when the fancy strikes.  What a cool idea!  I hope you have a fun time discovering your new favourite artists.

Have an artistic evening!

Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

The Fixin’s

My super cute dress is a find from Reed, it is the free gift for the Mesh Body Friends Group, which is free to join.  It fits:

  • Freya
