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

My Jam

PayingItForwardMaddict
If you had to choose…

What would be your favourite song of all time? I don’t mean the song in the top 40 that is your current favourite (although it could be..), or a special song you have with a loved one, I mean… that awesome song that you blast when it comes on the radio and you know every last word to.  That song that makes everything else around you disappear for a couple of minutes and just fills your heart with “happy”.

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world

That song for me is “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, and when it came on the radio on the way to work the other day it inspired the idea that I needed to find some great headphones in Second Life.  It didn’t take long to find these cool frosting headphones in the Bantam Marketplace Store for just 1L in three different colours!

Headphones Colour Options:

  • Pink/Blue
  • Cream/Green
  • Red/Yellow

You can find my Cozy Sweater Set that includes the holiday sweater and matching panties as a free Paying It Forward group gift (free to join) at the Maddict display at The Paying It Forward Event.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

As previously mentioned on FabFree by both Aline and myself [HERE], [HERE], [HERE] and [HERE]…  There are free group gifts in almost every stall!

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!

Just Another “Dorky” Couples Christmas Card Pose

11-29-2017

Dorky is as Dorky Does…

I found this pose, “Merry Christmas” by Little Piggy, on the Marketplace for just 1L and I thought to myself that it would be a cute pose for my personal Christmas card. Yes, it is a couple’s pose, but I made it work for myself (and my snowman buddy, of course). She happened to see it and said “You should blog that. Everyone will be looking for a “dorky” couple’s Christmas card pose.” (Please note, that was her words, not mine). So she proceeds to hop on the other pose, changes her clothes to a more winter appropriate attire and waits for me to take the photograph. For it being a “dorky” pose, she was in a hurry to get in on the action….

What’s In Your SL Wallet?

NunoHey FabFree! It’s time to check under those couch cushions and scrape up some all the little lindens you can find because N-Uno has some big sales going on in their Marketplace Store, and when I say sales…  I don’t mean 100L, or 75L or even 50L…  I MEAN 1L!

ENTIRE FATPACKS FOR 1L!

Infact almost everything is priced at 1L so you can shop for hours on a handful of change!  The best way to make your lindens go farther is to skip the single outfits first and go straight for the fatpacks, and then go back to the main marketplace link for other single items that are not sold in fatpacks.  Below you will find first a link to the marketplace store, and then below it you will find a link to just the fatpack items, so you can easily skip over the singles and get more bang for your buck.  Again..  make sure you check out the whole store though – as some items are only sold in singles.

Mama Mia, What A Deal!

In my photo above, you will find me wearing three items from the N-Uno Marketplace store that I picked up for 1L each in full fatpacks.  The Mia Bodysuit, Skirt and Jacket (animated to keep your arms in!) all come in five standard mesh sizes with alpha layers.  Their vendor ad is shown below to give you an idea of fabric textures included.

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
