Another Year Over, A New Ones Just Begun…

nearly new years

Hey Faboos!

I can’t believe that another year has gone by.  And covid is still as prevalent as it was when it started.  Ugh.  I hope 2022 will be the year we all say enough already and do whatever has to be done to take our lives back from this virus!

I know things will never be the same as they were pre-covid, but maybe it has brought some positive into our lives too.  Like appreciating day to day things we took for granted, friends, family, hugs, shopping!  Even appreciating just getting up in the morning and feeling *good*.  Perhaps it came to teach us to shift our perspective and be grateful for all the little wonderful things, as simple as waking up to a new day (some people don’t, and one day, you won’t either).

It makes me think of one of my favorite movies Dead Poets Society.  Mr. Keating (Robin Williams) tells his class to seize the day, make your life extraordinary while you can.  The powerful play goes on and YOU get to contribute a verse.  What will your verse be?  Let 2022 be the year we all live in state of gratitude, seizing the day with those we love and contributing our powerful verse.  What legacy do you hope your life will create?

Where was I?

I got a bit sidetracked there.  The turning of a new year always makes my thoughts get deeper than they normally are (and that’s saying something!!!).

I’m getting ready for the new year and I’m doing it in style!  This sexy little number is the latest free group gift from Pink Cream Pie.  It has several colors to choose from and also a sheer option.  The group is 314 to join and there is an entire wall of group gifts for your shopping pleasure.  This one fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn

My hair, which you have seen all over the Fab Free Blog by now, thanks to Aline & Jacx.  Now you get to see it in my signature blonde, this is of course the new free group gift from Truth.  Their VIP group is 350L to join and the hair is in the recent notices.

A New Year Right Around the Corner

I’ve also got some fun New Year’s Deco for you.  My 2022 numbers are the final Advent Day from Simply Shelby.  In fact the final advent day gives you an entire New Year’s Eve Prep Kit that I think is pretty darn nifty!  Even though the advent is past, you can still grab them all for only 10L.  As of this posting they are all still available.

I also headed over to the Okinawa Holiday Event where they are lots of free gifts to grab, with no group needed.  I found this adorable hair flower Free by Ayame and I absolutely love having my own New Year’s Ball which is 75L at Ever Green.  Really it is made that you wear it and you can walk around on it, which is lots of fun, but for the photo I needed to stand still, so.  But I love it for decor, it turns and it changes all sorts of beautiful iridescent-y colors!  Really gorgeous!

Have a Hap-Hap-Happy New Year! (Rudolph’s Shiny New Year Song)

There are just so many freebies and goodies around the grid right now, my head is just spinning!

For this post I’ve been visiting advent calendars and also Planet29 which is celebrating a birthday and has gifts galore! I haven’t even opened them all yet.  I guess that’s something to do to keep me warm in this unsavory ice cold weather!

Let’s start with the advent calendars, I got this gorgeous tree for free at Simply Shelby (I love her stuff!) via her advent calendar.  She has had some really cute stuff in it.  No group needed and its free! Each day is free, but it is also only available for one day only.  I’ve already grabbed this cute tree and another on another day.

Vintage Me!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I’m all about the vintage/retro stuff.  Those of us old enough (cough!) to remember those days know they had a feel.  The 70’s had a feel, the 80’s had a feel.  Somehow once the 90’s started, the era’s started blending together (for me at least), they didn’t have *such* a distinction as the earlier decades (I’m barely old enough to remember the 60’s, but I know that and the 50’s, 40’s, etc also had a feel of their own).

So in my pic, I’ve got a bit of the sixties *and* seventies (can you distinguish?), thanks to the Vintage Fair!  Which is a lot of fun by the way.

The Awesome Shirt

This is screaming 77-79 to me.  Back in the day I had these sorts of shirts with band names on them (The Police for one.)  This is made by The Annex at The Vintage Fair, there are several different designs for you to choose from and they will set you back only 50L.    It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

The Decor

The Stay Wild Moon Child Poster by InkMe is from a gacha that is only 50L at The Vintage Fair.  Not sure the era on that one but as you saw in my previous post, I love all things celestial, so …. gimme!

Woodstock poster behind me, sixties, natch.  1969 to be exact.  You can get that on market from What Next for only 50L

I’m not showcasing the other things but just to give you a rundown of the era….

Pants – very seventies, obv.

The chair to my left (was a gift from Aline!  Thank you!!!!) is very sixties and my favorite color, pink!

Lastly the floppy hat (I bet you aren’t surprised to hear I have one just like this in rl!) is very late sixties, early seventies.

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Old mac donald found a sale ee i ee i oh!

Well its me again gang, Your favorite blonde, psychotic, shopaholic, head in the clouds blogger!  I hope you sang along with me!

As Aline already knows (and she *still* lets me blog!  I tell ya that girl is a saint!) and now you all do too, I love to change the words to songs, I generally make them very silly.  But sometimes they just come out downright BAD!  But that’s the fun in it!

I know, I know, y’all are waiting to find out what goodies I found for you this morning!  So, thanks to the group chat (which is usually loaded with fun info and helpful peeps like yerselves!) I learned of a little part of Scandalize that I (since I’ve been living under a rock, apparently, which someone once told me  lol) is just chock full of freebies!  It’s called Scandals Frees and News.  The group is free to join and it is an entire room of clothes and complete outfits that are totally free!  Really, if they had this sort of stuff back in the dark ages when I was a newbie, well, let’s just say I would have been much better dressed!   You can get an entire wardrobe here!

The cute pants and belt I am wearing are one of the things I found there. They come in this solid color and the same color but with cute little polka dots.  I found so much though don’t be surprised if they pop up in another blog post.  These super cute pants fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

OK chickadees, this girl is *starving*! So I’m gonna go find some lunch.  Happy shopping y’all!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Kupra, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), MeshBody Legacy
