So Shiny

So Shiny

Good Evening, FabFree! Monday the 13th… now that’s my idea of an unlucky day. Well, except that 13 has always been a lucky number for me… and I don’t mind Mondays. Okay, I don’t know where I was going with this except that I played some Gachas over at Shiny Shabby and I got lucky and …. unlucky.

Go for Gray

Anyway.  I hopped over to the Shinny Shabby to see what they had in store for us today. Lots of really gorgeous things, I even spent some “real” lindens. But there are a lot of lovely free gifts set out by generous designers too. Just join the free Shiny Shabby group and collect the presents at many of the booths. I was tickled to see that !gO!, one of my favs, had a gift box for us some I hurry over to the booth. And, of course I fell in love with the beautiful Jola Gacha.

The delightful dress and vest combo comes in five colors as does the fur coat. You can also win heels and matching shoulder bags ( not shown )  The shoulder bag I am showing is !gO!’s free gift to everyone! Just join the free Shinny Shabby group and pick up your gift. My unlucky came in that I couldn’t pull the Rare… but I’m happy as can be with my winnings!

Sizes Included for the Jola Gacha

  • Belleza Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Pastel

Pastel

Hey FabFree! I’m taking a day off from searching the Grid and teleporting hither and yon. January is such a good time to just cuddle up someplace warm and read a book. I tend to “nest” on days like this. Lots of pillows and soft blankets. Maybe a nice hot cup of tea or cocoa. Doesn’t that sound delightful? Oh, and of course, you have to have something super soft and cozy to wear, right?

Soft Pastel

The Annex has me covered with that last one. This is the “Lynn” dress from Annex and it’s the current free gift for members of the Teleport HUB group. I love the soft texture and the pastel pink. Doesn’t it look like it made of that fleece blanket material? Perfect for a winter day inside.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Now, I’ve talked about the Teleport HUB Group before but let me refresh your memories. You can join Teleport HUB at any shop that offers the group gifts and it will only set you back 10 little Lindens. That one time fee will open up a huge selection of designers offering lots of gifts.  I have noticed the many designers do leave the Teleport Hub gifts up a bit longer than a regular group gift. But I don’t mind a ‘relaxed’ renewal no and then.

Making Sense of It All

Making Sense of it all

It’s hard to believe that the Holidays are quickly coming to a close. I was just filling stockings and now I’m planning for New Years eve. Now, in Real Life, the Hubby and I are more cuddle up for a movie marathon with some sparkling cider and kisses at midnight. But on the Grid… I wanna be the one sparkling!

Like Love said… Sparkle on

The Sense Event is celebrating a bit early for New Years but it’s their 2nd year anniversary so why not? Many of the Designers are helping to celebrate by putting out fun free gifts for us. I have to admit, I almost skipped Celestina’s Weddings gift. I figured it would be something wedding related. Just goes to show, never judge a book by it’s cover. CW has given us this gorgeous violet cocktail dress and all the sparkle you could ask for to go with it. You’ll get not just the dress but also the two rings, the earrings and the brooch. And every piece is just spectacular. I can’t keep everything I pick up in my search for Blog posts…but I’m keeping this!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Voluptuous

Strike a Pose

My sophisticated pose, that just happens to show off my new rings perfectly, is from Crystal Poses. Simply named “Single//1”, you can pick up the free pose at the Sense Event as well. Just join the Sense event Group, which is free to join, and you can help yourself to so many gifts it’s almost like Christmas all over again.

You get two equally cute versions of the shirt. One with the little red bird and one that has “Merry Christmas” in vintage script across it.  This is a “limited” version of the shirt but it’s not that limited at all. This free gift has no note as to how long it may be available. So hurry over asap!

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gifts and Glad Tidings

Gadzooks, FabFree! It’s already Christmas Eve. Okay, be honest, how many of you were running around today doing the last minute shopping? I , personally, plead the fifth! 😉

Happy Christmas Eve Gift

Back when I was a kid, my folks always let me open one gift on Christmas Eve. I agonized over my choice each year. Even though I’m not a kid anymore, I got a great Christmas Eve gift to open. Truth has given all of us Group members a wonderful Holiday gift with this lovely new hairstyle – Eternity.  The gorgeous updo come with “addable” bangs to suit your taste.

Treating Myself

I grabbed this super cute top as a holiday gift for myself. “Rosie” is the latest Group Gift from Sweet Thing. The gift comes with three colors of the blouse all with the gold holly print. I liked the black best for the sparkly contrast. Once you join the free Group, check out the other past Group gifts available. Some of them require 1L but you get it right back.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza _ Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass,

 

Most of all…. Gabriel and I wish all of you the most wonderful Holiday Season. Love your friends and family, Celebrate with joy and feast with abandon! Happy Holidays to All of the best Readers on the Grid!

All Together Now

All this together-ness isn’t just in my mind. Applique Chic has bundled their free gifts for both girls and guys together for the Peace on Earth Hunt. Yep, the hunt is still going on and there are soooo many great gifts… but Gabriel and I HAD to show off this matching set of “Very Merry” sweaters, skirt and jacket.  The ladies’ set comes with the sweater, leggings and skirt all as separate pieces so you can wear them as you please with other things from your wardrobe. While the guys set, the jacket, sweater and under shirt, all come as one easy piece.

You Know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

You Know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

Here we go, FabFree. More great Christmas time free gifts. Our Second Life Designers are always generous through out the year but there’s something about Christmas, isn’t there?

On Dasher and Dancer

I’m seeing reindeer… gold ones if not eight tiny ones. This is the “Venus” sweater from Blonde Queen and it’s the  free Group Gift for December. I love that it’s not so short that it’s indecent and not so long that it can only be a dress. I think this will look awesome with a pair of jeans or equally great with tights and heels.  The Blonde Queen group is currently free to join and there are several past gifts available.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

If You Need a Little Christmas

If you need a little Christmas

I am still opening gifts and shopping and hopping, FabFree. I’m sure y’all are doing the same.  Well, if you like free gifts. 😉

Let’s start at the top.

This is my new hair style from Sintiklia. And you can pick it up for free at the Shop and Hop Winter Event. This designer is quickly becoming one of my favorites because of fun flirty styles like “Amelia” here. This hair comes with six preset colors in the HUD. But it also includes a color picker so you can tint those colors and make just about anything your heart desires.

Movin’ on down…

… to my gorgeous new Christmas sparkles. This is from a new-to-me Marketplace only designer: Krystal Fine Jewelry. Krystal is having a December Advent on the Marketplace,which is kinda cool. There are different pieces for a special 10L price like this beautiful red and green crystal necklace. If this isn’t your cup of sparkle… there are so many other lovely pieces… all for just 10L.

Last but surly not least…

…is another great Marketplace find. This is the “Xmas Dress” from another new-to-me designer – UpsideDown. This beautiful cocktail dress comes in either red or green and is only 1 tiny Linden! The dress is fit exclusively for Maitreya. I have no idea how long this awesome deal will last so hurry to the Marketplace.

 

Hair – Sintiklia – Amelia – FREE/0L  – Free gift @ Shop and Hop Winter Event

Necklace – Krystal Fine Jewelry – 10L Special Advent Gift

Dress – UpsideDown – Xmas Dress – 1L Special Christmas Gift

Snow Day like Today

Snow Day like Today

Hey FabFree! Are you getting all that Christmas shopping done? I thought I was caught up then wham… we get the Shop and Hop! So… MANY… Free Gifts!

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’

Like this lovely new hair from Magika! This is “Let it Snow” and you can pick it up for free at the Magika booth at Shop and Hop. The hair style comes in three sizes and the HUD is a full Fatpack! Merry Christmas, indeed.

My cozy scarf is also a free gift at Shop and Hop. This is Aphorism’s unisex gift ‘Winter Scarf’. It also comes with a HUD to change the scarf from solid to strips and to change or hide the fringe.

Women’s Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Men’s Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature- Gianni
  • SLink Male

Great balls of snow

I also hopped over to the SOS Winter Faire where I found this cute hand painted snowball free from Bad Kats. A few booths have gifts and most have an exclusive item for the Fair.

The Survivors of Suicide group in Second Life has grown by leaps and bounds and is, in fact , the longest running mental health group on the Grid. The Holidays are often difficult times for people and reaching out is never easy. But knowing someone is ready to talk or just listen can make the difference to someone in need.  So, have fun shopping the Fair and know the moneys raised from the raffle and donations go to SOS helping with real recovery.

And a personal note… if you are feeling blue this holiday season… reach out. There are so many people ready and willing to help.

You are loved and needed.
