Last Minute Shopping

12-24-2017

 

Waiting again…

I’m not going to sit on a bench in the cold like I did last year. I found a warm coffee shop to hold up in while she is crossing those last minute gifts off her list. With a book in hand, my time will fly as she fights the crowds. I found today’s outfit at Mara’s Mysteries Boutique. The Holiday Sweater and Pants are the Peace on Earth Hunt gift. The sweater/pants combo come in three colors, Red (shown), Green, and Gray and in sizes XS-XL. You still have time to get this gift and all the rest. The Peace on Earth Hunt ends on the 31st.

The Christmas Rush

MoohlewhoreI can’t wait for the Christmas rush to be through!

Hi there Fabulous readers! As much as I love the holiday season, I sometimes need to take some time to myself during this crazy rush. This afternoon before I was out shopping (AGAIN!), I found myself a nice quiet spot, a good coffee and some reading material to drown the world out, even for just a few minutes.

A Gift For Me… And You Too… Everyone, Actually!

At The Frozen Fair in the MOoH! display, you’ll find that the have a free gift for all visitors in a gift box priced at 0L.  Inside that box is the Jade Padded Jacket which comes with the sweater in the several sizes listed below.  It also includes a texture change HUD so that you can change the colour of your jacket to six different options!

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

Caught! Red Handed

12-18-2017

I was just rearranging the packages…

I was not shaking them or trying to guess what’s inside. I can’t believe you would accuse me of such a thing. When I was a child, I was horrible about packages under the tree. I would try to guess every package, mine or not. Sometimes, I miss that little scamp…

Gifts before Christmas…

GIZ SEORN (formally Gizza Creations) has not one, but two gifts under the tree for guys. I’m wearing the second of the two today. The Men’s Christmas Gift II outfit consists of a red button down shirt and green trousers and in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

While this gift is free to members, there is a group join fee of 50L, but there are past gifts still available.

Still time for peace….

My Vance Roughneck Boots are the Peace on Earth Hunt prize for guys at Roped Passions. There is still time go get all the gifts on this hunt as it concludes at the end of December. Ok, Ok… I’ll put the presents back….

Sleepyhead

PoemeTPHI just wanted fairy lights…

Hey there FabFree! I’m coming to you late in the evening, half asleep with my freebie news today as I have been fighting with my pre-lit Christmas Tree all day.  I thought it was going to be a simple little thing to get the lights off and put the new teeny fairy lights on… but no…  they are all weaved into the branches and clipped on!  I have no idea who was paid to install the lights into that tree, but I sure hope they were paid well because they did a fabulous job.

Cookies Trees For You And Me

I am having a hard time even looking at any more tree branches tonight, but this was too cute to pass up.  You should know that these adorable Cookie Trees Jammies are available as a free group gift for the Teleport Hub group at Poeme.  These come in XS-L mesh sizes and include the alpha layer in case you need it for a system body.  I am wearing my Maitreya Lara Body and it worked well with the alpha HUD.  The Teleport Hub group is just 10L and you can find this group gift just upstairs at Poeme.

Shake Your Reindeer Booties

At Vicarious Youth, you can find the Reindeer Booties in several baby, kid and adult sizes as a free gift for The Peace On Earth Hunt!  I did have my Maitreya Body on, and wore the Slink version with my feet turned off.  Worked like a charm!

Bootie Sizes Included:

  • Resize Version
  • Slink
  • TD Baby
  • TD Kid

Reindeer Games

12-09-2017

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen….

But I bet you don’t recall, the most frustrating reindeer of all. Meet Vexen.  He can be a bit annoying, but he truly means well. And he heard someone was looking for a reindeer to pull her sleigh. As long as she can put up with Vexen’s “personality quirks” , he will make a good driver of her winter carriage.

Grab your boyberrys…

Peace on Earth Hunt gift, geez, people. The FREE Reindeer Costume from boyberry consists of decorated reindeer antlers, a cowl, chest and shoulder holly, boots, a tail, and a strap to cover your bits. It’s a great costume for the less modest reindeer of the herd. It looks like she’s ready to go…. ummm… why is she holding a whip and grinning?

Settled In For A Long Winters Nap

POErOrOIt’s a good thing I ate my wheaties this morning…

Because I had to wrestle him for the TV remote tonight.  I was in the mood to settle in the best spot on the sofa and watch some animated Christmas specials.  They are all over the guide listing this month and I’m happy about that :).  The only problem is that I can’t make up my mind which one to watch, because I love so many of them and there are only three weeks left to watch them all.

Love’s Ultimate Favourite Top 5 Animated Christmas Specials (mostly in no particular order):

  1. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
  2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
  3. Frosty The Snowman
  4. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
  5. Santa Clause Is Comin To Town

Of course this list is just the cartoons…  How will I ever find time to fit in all of the Christmas themed movies too?  *Sinks into the sofa with a smile*.  He might as well kiss Supergirl goodbye because he won’t see this remote until January!  What are your favourites?

Cozy Apparel

You can find this super cute long cardigan with top at @rOrO FREE for the Peace on Earth Hunt!  I paired it up with  some comfy flared jeans by Aphorism available now as a new release at this round of FaMESHed and braided my hair all cute on a budget thanks to Wasabi Pills at The Arcade!  I was lucky enough to get the blonde pack on my first pull of 75L.  That sure doesn’t happen often.

Sizes Included:

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

Santa Squad

12-05-2017

 

Are you naughty or nice?

You may not know this but I am a member of the Santa Squad. I report back to the North Pole with details on my fellow bloggers here at FabFree, letting the big guy know if they have been naughty or nice.  I hate to say it, but the list has mixed results. It’s a good thing there are still a few weeks left before Christmas….

The good list…

If you are good (and can find the hunt item) you can have two of the items I am wearing as FREE gifts! The Santa Squad Military Shirt with Tee is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift provided by Dark Water Designs. The shirt comes in two styles, with the tee (shown) and without.  And both styles come in sizes S-L and also in three fitmesh sizes. Get on the good team wearing this shirt. You can also pick up the Winter Newsboy Cap, the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Couture Chapeau. With a built in resizer, it even fit my buckethead easily.
