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!

  • Maitreya Lara

UGG!

These cozy Ugg Boots can be found FREE at Le Fashion Whore for the Peace on Earth Hunt until the end of the month.  They are compatible with just about any feet you have as they come with an alpha, and also included is a texture change HUD for 12 colour options!  The hunt icon you are looking for is an earth globe.

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! 🙂

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

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

For Just A Few Minutes, It Was Silent

POE2

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Good morning Fabulously Free in SL Readers!  I was supposed to go out last night, but the snow began to fall late afternoon and the roads were an icy mess so I thought it best to stay back at home.  It’s a good thing I did, because if I had gone out I would have missed out on the surreal experience the snow left when it silenced everything around me.  Time stood still for just a few moments. The streets were quiet, the wind was still and the snow was pure white and sparkling.  The neighbors across the street had just hung their decorations and Christmas lights which were glowing through the snow, and when I looked over there it was a perfect holiday scene as if they had sent out my Christmas card early.

Like my fur coat?

Don’t worry – no animals were harmed in the making of this pixel fashion piece!  Until the end of the month, you can pick it up as a free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Stormcrow Designs!

Sizes Included:

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

Soon… True Peace

12-04-2017

Finally….

We have come to a peace accord. I am no longer allowed to mention “the chair”, the incident, the attempted murder, or how the chair was really mine. (I did call “dibs” first!) Also, I am to complement her daily (while trying to hide my eye rolls as I say them). And for her part of the peace treaty, she is to smile and say thank you every time I give her said complements. I think I could have gotten a better deal….

We are both NUTS!

We decided to take a leisurely stroll outside in the fresh snow. We even put on our FREE matching sweaters (so we didn’t fight over who got to wear what)  from NUTS Inc. that we found on the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The his and hers Britt and Niels Sweaters come in the following sizes:

For Her…

  • Mesh XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

For Him…

  • Sizes S-L + Alpha Layer
  •  2 Fitmesh sizes

That Peaceful, Easy Feeling…

It didn’t take me long to intentionally trip  playfully shove her down in a snow drift. I ended up down there with her. (she my be small but STRONG).  And after a bit of snow throwing (how I ended up on the bottom, I don’t know, but I was watching out for any object that could be placed over my face) she looked up and pointed out a dove flying overhead. Maybe we will have peace after all. Another FREE gift to be found on the Peace on Earth Hunt is the Soon True Peace pose from Something New . This lovely couples pose includes the dove, the symbol for peace. It may also be a nice pose for the traditional couples Christmas Card. I only hope peace lasts at least through the holidays….
