Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Hey gang,

It’s that time again, time for some steamy hot chocolate (I’m one of those oddballs who doesn’t drink coffee), and it’s time for another Wicked Wednesday Sale!  Woohoo!

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

I absolutely love going to the new cafe at the Mystic Dreamers Mall.  It’s so cozy with the snow falling outside, and those little hammies always keeping the drinks fresh and super yummy (they bake too!  The chocolate chip cookies are to die for!).  It’s a great place to kick back a bit with friends and it’s one of those places you always feel welcome.  Those little cafe keepers always know too when I’ve had one of *those days* and I need an extra kick in my cocoa!  Ahhh, nothing like a bit of rum mixed in to make it extra warm and relaxing!

You know what is right across the courtyard from the cafe?  Shanti!  That’s where I picked up this absolutely adorable outfit for only 50L thanks to Wicked Wednesdays.  You can find this Wicked Wednesday deal available from now until early Thursday.  No group needed either!  You might want to join the Wicked Wednesday Group though to get the ad each week, that way, you don’t miss anything!  This dress fits:

  • Classic Fitmesh Sizes
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The boots come with it but are standard sizes.  I made mine work with a little bit of alpha and they look super cute!

This deal is active now, but don’t wait too long, by Thursday the sale ends.

Maybe we will see you at the cafe!  Stop by, grab a mug of something wonderful and spend some time by the cozy fire!

Blue Rose

Blue Rose

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. I know this weekend s a frantic one for me! Have you seen all there is to do and see on the Grid right now?? Of course, our own FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost is my personal favorite but there tons of other hunts going on that need our attention. Like the 6th Aniversary Hunt going on at Belle Epoque!

There are so many wonderful gifts (30 to be precise)in this store hunt that I had a hard time choosing one to show. But this sporty casual shirt dress is my fav. This is “Rose” and you can grab it for free in the Birthday Hunt. All of the gifts in the Hunt are totally free and there are even some friends of Belle Epoque with items in the Hunt.

For example my lovely new necklace from On a Lark. Not only is it beautifully made, the entire necklace is resizable and easily modified so I was able to make it fit perfectly. That is really something I appreciate since I’m not exactly the average avatar size elf.

The Belle Epoque 6th Anniversary Hunt runs until  the 30th of the month so go get your hunt on!

Sizes Included for “Rose”

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

To celebrate my new dress I made a quick jump over to Olive to take advantage for the great weekend sales going on now. There are four hair styles up at the front desk ranging from 60 to 75L on a couple of different sales. I grabbed this lovely style “Awake Hair” for the 75L price. It includes a full fatpack of colors too!

That’s it for now FabFolks, I got to run… so many sales to get too! Later gaters!

Goodness Green Gracious!

Goodness Green Gracious!

I know that green seems to be popping up all over the place these past few days, but I for one am all for it.  Here in the frozen North, we’ve still got a while to go before things start even thinking about turning green!  Right now it’s what we like to call “Fool’s Spring” – where a few days of sunshine and *slightly* warmer weather has everyone thinking Spring is on its way…then the snow hits again!  Bring on the green!

Fabulous and Free

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Lybra sure have been knocking it out of the park these days!  They have hunts and free gifts galore going on!  And of course, near and dear to my heart is the new FabFree group gift that just popped up.  This sexy dress comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s flirty and femme in all the right ways.  Of course, to get it all you need to do is join our FREE group, and then click on the vendor.  Lovely!

Sizes

  • Alice
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Hunting for Doves

I told you the other day about the monthly hunt that Lybra is taking part in at The Free Dove, but this month there are actually TWO free hunts going on at The Free Dove!  The second is sponsored by Chop Zuey, which means lots of pretty jewelry.  This time you’re looking for 10 white doves (5 at The Free Dove and 5 at Chop Zuey).  To pick up these gifts, you need to be a member of the Free Dove group which is free to join.  I’m showing off the Star Crossed and Yareli bracelets.  You’ve got until the end of the month to take part in this hunt!

 

GREEN I SAY!

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Bern-ing Love

Bern-ing Love

Yesterday, I showed you the lovely gifts that are on offer from Shanti on the inaugural FabFree Valentine’s Day Hunt.  I want to dive into the offerings by Paper.Sparrow (our very own Bunnie Francis is the designer!) and go on a little rant that I will most likely be killed for later.  It was nice knowing you all.  Bunnie is a very selfless, creative, kind, and generous person.  She’ll listen when you need an ear, and she’s always coming up with new ways to give to our community.  I am really lucky to have a Bunnie in my life, because she is a little ball of energy and creativity that truly inspires.  Thank you for organizing this hunt, Bunbun!

High and Low

So, the thing with Arielle and Bunnie hiding things is that they’re quite good at it.  I’ve warned you!  When you do the Paper.Sparrow part of the FabFree hunt, located at our Info Hub,  you’ll find this lovely dress and heels (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink & Voluptuous) for just 1L each.  So sweet, right?  Then, if you wear your FabFree tag while you’re hunting, you’ll be able to grab these massive decor hearts featuring a very cozy Bernie S. on them for free! They come in a pile of pretty candy hues.  I think I’ll look just like him at work tomorrow… Anyway!  You know what I mean!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Hunting Hearts

Hunting Hearts

As promised, I’m back this evening to talk about the sweet little Valentines Day Hunt going on over at Poeme! If you know me, you know I love Poeme’s shop and the owner/designer, Elysiane Sapphire, is an absolute delight. She has very generously offered the Hunt prizes in a “Transferable” form so you can gift your sweetheart if you so desire. If that isn’t enough, she has also added a day to the Hunt to make sure we all have time to pick up these Valentines Day goodies.

I picked out the “Ruffle Me Up” dress in scarlet to show off as well as the “Love Me Red Choker” and the “Burning Love Tote”. But I picked up quite a few more things in the Hunt. Because you can never have too many plaid boots! Besides with everything only 15L this is one event that won’t wreck your pocketbook.

The Hunt now runs until February 15th so get over there and Hunt down some hearts!

Every Day’s Clutter

Every Day's Clutter

There’s nothing I like better than random, pretty clutter.  I love piles of cute things to look at, and I love rearranging them on furniture until I can see it all and it tumbles at me gracefully.  I had so much fun putting this scene together that I quite lost track of time today!

Classy and Sassy

The January group gift has made its appearance at Sass, and it’s super cute.  It’s this grey and yellow babydoll dress that strikes a nice balance between cute but still utterly wearable in grey and yellow.  It’s a little breath of spring in the midst of winter for me, so I highly appreciate it.  You can grab this lovely dress by joining the Sass group for 10L and then paying the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  You may also want to grab the Teleport Hub version of the dress too while you’re there, that group is just 10L to join as well, so do check it out.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

I Heart It!

When Astralia announced their latest group gift was a super cute desk and chair set, I knew I had to have it.  It’s adorable and girly in all the right ways.  The desk is heart-shaped, and it comes with a matching chair that kinda has me feeling a bit “Alice in the court of the Queen of Hearts”.  Just a vibe I’m getting!  Grab your own by joining the Astralia group for 149L, then you can dress up your desk area too!

Now, where did my fries go?

A Return to Darkness

A Return to Darkness

Back in my early days of Second Life-ing, I was straight up a goth girl.   Probably because it’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, and it was fun to explore all the deep, darkness of it all.  I know I’ve blathered about this before, about being who you want to be in SL, etc.  But what I do want to touch upon is how FabFree made me realise that I didn’t have to have just one style.  When I started blogging here back in 2017, I realised that there were so many different freebies hanging around the grid that I could play around with, and since that moment I haven’t really looked back – I just get what I like!  But it is nice to revisit old friends, isn’t it?

The Deep Dark

I’m getting that Morgan le Fay feeling today (you know, when she’s an antagonist), and bubbling up some magical devilry in the depths of the earth.  To get this look, I need look no further than the Vanity Event.  They’ve got a bunch of gifts peppered around at different stalls, and they’re all free.  You don’t even need to join a group here, just click on the boxes and bags, and they’re yours.  I got this gorgeous gown over at the TOG display.  It comes in both black and white versions, and also has a pair of shoes included (not pictured).  Who doesn’t need a good gown?

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

The weather outside is frightful

The weather outside is frightful
It’s been so snowy in the Secondlife sims, that I have been moonlighting as a snow plow driver in my spare time.  (just kidding, the snowplow made a nice backdrop.)  What I’ve actually been doing is trying to keep up with all these great holiday freebees.  So many designers have been giving away so many nice gifts, it is hard to keep up.  I recently found out A Town Called a Short Leash (adult sim) was having an event, so I packed up the snow plow and headed over.  (okay, I will stop with the snow plow.) The Christmas Tree in the center of town had a pile of free presents from different designers on the sim.  I picked up this nice Roux sweater dress by Starlight Apparel there.  The dress comes with a matching belt that can be worn with the dress or separately.

I also found this really cute Hearts face tattoo by Letter K which you can see in better detail on the picture below.
The weather outside is frightful (part 2)

These gifts were put out for Christmas, so you better get them quick.  The holiday season will be gone before you know, taking the Christmas trees and gifts with it.
