Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

Counting My Blessings

telsiope FF GG, No Match No Tendencies

Happy 1st Friday of 2022! Although the real world is wild, crazy, and insane here in SL we have so many blessings. We usually don’t catch viruses or diseases here (at least I haven’t gotten any). But always remember this – boys have cooties!

Our fabulous, marvelous designers are always showering us with gifts or offering great prices an promos or sales. It’s fun to jump around the grid to discover new goodies. I’ve been doing a bit of this and that, going here and there to find fashion items you may like.

One of the newest FabFree group gifts (Free to join) comes courtesy of Telsiope’s Couture. This lovely delicately textured dress is Victoria. I love the way the gold threads swirl while making lovely patterns on the cloth. You could use this as casual or a semi-dressy wear.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • SLink HG

While I was scoping out goodies I made a trip to The Free Dove to see what was new. I found these tres chic heels from {Le’la}, the Unka Heels (Free gift at The Free Dove/Free group join needed). If you prefer a shiny shoe you will love these. The package includes sizes for Maitreya and Slink as well as an 8 color change hud.

Next I tripped on over to No_Match. There is a new Next Up game with a new to me style – No_Tendencies. Each try at the machine costs $50L. If you haven’t tried one yet it’s like a gacha but you know what you’ll get before you spend the $L. I scored this Black/white version on my 1st try. The included hud has 9 different shades from whites/greys/blacks. I’ll be going there often to catch the red hud!

Off I go again to scour the grid for goodies!

Peace,

Cre

Pink Cream Pie January GG

Hey Fabbies!

‘Tis just me again with more group gift finds.  I can’t say enough how much I *love* Pink Cream Pie.  She just feeds into my obsessions like pink… and unicorns!  So, how can a girl resist?!

However today I have neither pink, nor unicorns to show you (maybe next time, hm?), but I do have this free adorbs sparkly dress.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there are a load of group gifts up for your perusal.  This just happens to be the newest one.  It comes with a limited HUD (can change color of straps and undies) and it fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

My cute hair is a free gift from No.Match on the Cosmopolitan Christmas tree, which is free but you have to join the Cosmo group, which is also free.  It is still up with loads of gifties as of this post, but I don’t know how long it will be up, so I would hurry on this one if I were you!

I know this is painfully short….  I haven’t had my quota of caffeine for the day yet!  Stay warm gang!!!  Only another 75 days until Spring!

Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

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)

Eat Me, Drink Me and Get a Bit Too Merry

alice
Hey Gang!

Tomorrow is Festivus, so a happy Festivus to the rest of us!  Get that pole out of the attic storage space and start airing those grievances!

Now to your normally scheduled post…

I had a crazy dream last night!  I was all dressed up for a Christmas party and I had this amazing Peppermintini to drink.  I took a sip and suddenly I was in Wonderland!  I was on a giant chessboard and the glitter on my gown was animated and sparkling!!!  It was a really cool dream!  Perhaps I had a bit too much to sip on while baking those cookies!

Oh wait, you can do all these things too (drink peppermintini on a giant chessboard while wearing an animated dress!  It’s second life!!!!)

Here’s how!

For a giant chessboard simply go in search under places and type in wonderland, there is a plethora of them!

Second, head to The Arcade and hit up the ChicChica machine for 75L and grab yourself a festive martini!  (Aline is sipping another flavor here)  They are all adorbs!

Third, head to Shanti tomorrow (the 23rd) and click the advent box for that day, you will have yourself my free sparkling, animated gown which fits:

  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh M
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Sine the photo can’t do it justice, I made a short video clip which you can click below to see the animation:

Shanti Blue Velvet Gown with Animated sparkles

All advent gifts at Shanti are free on the day and past days are 5L.  No group required.  (and if you pop over on Christmas Eve, you can get a free 500L gift card!  No group needed!) (no questions asked!  lol)

Lastly, you want your head to stay warm so head (no pun intended!) on over to Argrace.  If you remember my last post I mentioned they had several free new holiday gifts for both the ladies and the men and I am showing one this time.  You just need to join the update group (free) and click the vendors!  Caroline blogged another of the Argrace Group gifts here.  And Cre is wearing the same one as me here.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!!

Cookies & Cocoa

IMG_2424 2

Hey Gang!

Holiday festivities continue!  I’ve been working hard in my little kitchen trying to make some cute Christmas cookies that don’t look like a lunatic decorated them.  I think they are coming out all right.  Whew!  It’s work!  But it’s fun.  Now it’s time for a hot chocolate break.

All The Fixin’s!

My hot chocolate mug is from The Arcade, made by Movement.  I was lucky and scored the rare on this one, and it is overflowing with yummy Christmas-ness.  I think it must be straight from Santa because it says “Ho ho ho” on the cup.  Either that or someone thinks I have a much more fun social life than I actually have!  *snort!*

The machine is only 50L a play and there are so many cute holiday mugs.  You get one to hold and one for decoration.

Sweater Weather

In real life the heat in my apartment stinks.  You click it up to high but the baseboards stay ice cold, and just sort of come on randomly much much later on.  I think the complex controls them and they just put a switch to make us think we do.  So I am always cold.  That leads me to loving a nice snuggly sweater both in real life and second life, like this super cute one from VISion, which is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop.  They have three designs, all very cute.

There is no group needed to grab the Shop & Hop gifts, you just need a free afternoon to run around and grab them all.  It’s much quieter there now that the rush is over, so it’s a nice relaxing stroll now.

These sweaters fit:

  • EBody Reborn
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Festive Hats, Old & New

My cute hat is an old group gift from Argrace.  When I went to see if they still have it available, but instead I found a bunch more for both men and women, and you only need to be a part of the update group (there is a podium you can click on).  I don’t *think* there is a cost, as it is not an sl group, but as I was already a part of it, I couldn’t tell.  So let us know and we can update this post, if there is a cost.  I don’t think there is though!

Happy Happy Merry Merry!

We Wish you a Puppy Christmas and a Woofy New Year

pups xmas_002

Hey gang!

I don’t know about y’all but I’ve just about run myself ragged!  My little holiday helpers and I have been hard at work putting up the tree and decorations as well as the usual chores like laundry and cleaning before the holiday!  We are all pooped.  Why, even the little man can’t stifle a big yawn!  (and one of the pups found some nice toasty laundry fresh out of the dryer for his nap!)

It’s been a super busy weekend, so it’s time for a little nap for the pups and some chill time for me.  There will still be plenty to do before the holiday, like wrap gifts and bake Christmas cookies, etc etc!  So I need to rest up too, so let’s talk about the goodies I have for you and then I can maybe grab a quick nap too! (any room left in that toasty laundry???)

Have yourself a Little Puppy Christmas…

So, its not a *new* group gift per se, but it was so fun to pull out of my archives this year and it is still available, and that’s my santa hat from Jian, which of course, in Jian style, is not without some cute!  It’s got a sleeping puppy in it!  Sooooo Squeeeee-able!  For the cat people out there, the gift also comes with a kitten version.

This is a free group gift, the group is free to join, it fits everyone, even the guys out there bold enough to wear cuteness under their santa hat (if you are single that’s a great cute conversation starter to meet girls! You’re welcome!)

HEXtraordinary, not to be outdone in the cuteness department, have an adorbs set of dachshunds for us, 50L each.  They are animesh, some are sporting super cute Christmas sweaters and antlers, there are wanderers, companions….  This is for Secret Sale Sunday, *today* so hurry over if you fancy yourself a very cute weenie pup!  I love their little wagging tails!  I’m showing the non Christmas Cream colored one, snuggled next to me.

For the Practical Minded (not usually me  lol)

Careless, whom we have blogged before has their entire line of furniture totally free at Communal Bliss.  I’m showcasing one of the pink sofas, behind me.  They are all so well made, with great animations, and for free you can’t beat the price.  Each set comes with loads of color choices and styles.  I do confess I scooped them *all* up so I can change my decor at will!  All the items are free and there is no group needed.

Lastly, but not leastly, one more (sort of) practical item, my shoes.  It has taken me near the entire month to get these but I finally got one of the Rare Shoes by Pure Poison at The Arcade.   They are 50L a play.  Yes, even the non rare ones are cute.  😉

Now since this is time sensitive, let me stop babbling for now, Happy Christmas Week!

Grandma’s been staring through the window ever since it started to snow…
If it gets any worse I’ll have to let her in.

Hey Gang!

Yeah I’m starting off with a bad snow joke, and that’s snow joke!  So Jacx was talking about a snowball fight the other day in her post and I’ve decided to take her up on her offer.  I’m not sure she knows what she has gotten herself into though.  I am *very* competitive!  I also have the same set of poses from Fashiowl from Shop & Hop (free), so I am armed and ready to go too!  (I can’t throw snowballs without arms, you know!)

I’ve put together an eclectic combo of an outfit for the fight, me and cold aren’t the best of buddies (despite my Elsa obsession!), and so whatever I can throw together that keeps me warmest, gosh-darnit, that’s what I’m gonna wear when it’s cold!

Freebies, Freebies and More Freebies! (and maybe a couple of great deals for good measure!)

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the free mesh heads from Lelutka this past week, I have the *worst* luck trying to get into crowded places like that and I feel like I am always the last to grab anything that there is a big rush for.  Nonetheless, I am sporting the brand spankin’ new Kaya head which is a free group gift (free group join) from Lelutka.  (There’s one for the guys as well!)  My skin is also a freebie, it is a group gift from Koonz.  Their group is free to join.

Usually I use my own shape, but I really liked the free shape for Kaya by Wren’s Nest.  It is a free group gift and the group is temporarily free to join.  Her shapes are really nice.

This awesome Santa style jacket is from Gabriel and you can get it for men and women both at their store for only 50L.  It’s super warm for snowball fights too!  For women this fits Maitreya and Legacy.  It does come with the option of a shirt underneath too.

I am absolutely enamored with my fluffy boots, they are from Gild at The Arcade.  They have all the colors you can wish for of fur boots and the machine is 50L a play.  They have them for both men and women.

Finally, my hair and hat is a Fifty Lindens Friday pick from Wasabi, I just checked and she still has it up, but not sure how long it will be up for!
