3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

In Denial

We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!

The Décor Details…

When you TP into The Chapter Four Event, you will find that many of the participating designers have little gold packages at their displays.  These are the free group gifts that are set to The Chapter Four inworld group (free to join).  The Belle Epoque Winter Dreams Fireplace, I scored in a gacha machine for 70L at the event, but you’ll find the four other decorative items at no expense.

Not only are there plenty of décor items as free gifts at The Chapter Four, but you will also find many avatar accessories and fashion pieces too.  In fact, you’ll find my Shayla Skirt all decked out with zippers as a free The Chapter Four group gift at the Zanze display.

Want to win a fatpack of Aphorism Easy Rider Jackets for yourself or a friend this holiday season?

If you are digging my Aphorism Easy Rider Jacket, you can find this at the Winter Trend Fair for purchase, BUT make sure you visit the Aphorism Facebook Page, because they are holding a contest where you could win one of five Easy Rider Jacket Fatpacks including 9 colours for yourself or you can choose to gift it to a friend.

Good morning Fabulouses!  Check out the new smoking hot new group gift dress at Stories & Co. by Flowey!  Hopefully when I showed off the last group gift at Stories & Co. by Flowey [HERE] a couple of weeks back, you joined and stayed in the group because you won’t want to miss out on the very sexy Lea Dress in purple that they just put out right beside the previous gift that is still available.

This dress is newly released and comes in Slink and Maitreya sizes as well as mesh XXS-M along with the co-ordinating alpha layer should you need it.

Make Me A Sammich

Snapshot_003Hey there Fabulouses! I hope you enjoyed your weekend 🙂  It’s been fff f f f fffreeezing here over the past couple of days and there is nothing better for it than a warm snuggly sweater and comfort food, so I am following suit here in Second Life as well!

Fishy Strawberry is where I found my red turtleneck.  It actually comes in a set of two labelled Christmas Turtlenecks as a freebie, and while the other white tree/gift printed sweater is better suited for the holidays,  I think the red one I am showing off today could be worn any old cold day.  The mesh Moto Jeggings are also by Fishy Strawberry and are available for free instore.  I have blogged these before when they were a gift for The Chapter Four’s Anniversary [HERE], but if you missed them previously – you can snag them now!

This picnic basket is a free gift at :Poche and comes with a rezzable and hold version.  When you touch the basket it gives you a steaming animated sandwich.

I should also mention the Distressed Lace Table I’m sat upon because it is not only adorable and shabby chic, but a free group gift that you can pick up after you join the free Scarlet Creative inworld group.

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

computer1

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

Make A Fresh Start

Snapshot_002
January is a great time for a fresh start, and if you think you might be in need of one, why not start small by participating in The Fresh Start Hunt put on by Gardenia Events?  This quick hunt with just 35 stops will leave your inventory stuffed with great treats, all for just 1L each.  You can even see a prize preview on their official hunt website so that you can decide if it’s worth your linden before you hunt.  Beware though… there are decoys.  Make sure you are buying the yellow star hunt icon, not an invisible prim named as you would think!

I was super pleased with the Long Sleeved Dress in a beautiful shade of blue that I got as a Fresh Start Hunt prize at Psy Designs.  This simple classy cut comes in several mesh sizes and mesh body fits.

Good Morning

Snapshot_004

Good morning Fabulous Readers! I hope you are well today… and I hope you are already a member of the Siss Boom inworld group, because they have just put out the sweetest lingerie set as a group gift.  This feminine Pink Roses Bra & Panty Set comes in system layers and an Omega Advanced applier.  The group is 300L to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up in the shelf!

I should also mention the items that I put together for this set too, because they were all very affordable and under 75L, aside from the Scarlet Creative Anya House build… which was a minimal 188L at Collabor88!  If you are familiar with Scarlet Creative builds – this is a steal!!

I was visiting the Black Bantam shop yesterday and found their Vintage gacha machine that plays for just 65L.  I have used the Vintage Vanity, Vintage Ruler Box, and Vintage Tin Vase in this shot.  The Vanity of course, is the rare piece in this set, however it was really quite easy to get, in fact I had multiples in a handful of plays!  You can find the Floral Round Rug and Vintage Teacup Planter priced at 20L in the junk. marketplace store.  These adorable little “My Puppies” are Fawny’s N21 (N21 ends today, I imagine they’ll be at the Fawny mainstore after today) gacha offering, playing at 75L a try.  Even my Innocence Pose by Secret Body was just 30L on the marketplace!

I just love when it all comes together affordably!  Have a super day 😀
