All the time in the world

All the time in the world

Okay, I may be starting to possibly, every now and then, maaaaybe… looking forward to some Spring.  Like when I find cute things that just scream warm weather. Or a spot where the sun sends warm beams through the windows and it’s almost impossible not to slow down and enjoy.

Hurry Hurry

But… not time for that! Now this will be a quick post because the super cute jeans I’m wearing are an Advent gift that is still available! I’ve double checked and as of right now, the ‘Jeans White Flowers’ from AnOmAlleS, are set out as part of the past Christmas season advent. In fact, most of the advent gifts are still there and set for various prices. As low as free ( like the jeans) and up to 20L for a very nice dress. There’s even a great chocolate colored sweater for the guys!  So if you need these jeans hurry over!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Mairteya
  • SLink

Hot crop

My new top from Atreum may not be as time intensive as the jeans but as with all Group Gifts, they can come and go quickly. This is the ‘Ruffled Crop Top’ and it the current Group Gift for the free-to-join Atreum group. You get the cute top with a ten color HUD for great mixing and matching. You’ll find eight ombre colors plus a solid black and a solid ivory. Don’t wait if you need this one in your closet.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Scritches for Jack

Scritches for Jack

When I was just a very little kid, I took horse back riding lessons and fell in love with my lesson horse. His name was Jack. He was a sweet old horse and I still think about him. I’m not able to keep a horse where we live now in real life, so I have my “Jack” here in Second Life. And like the RL jack, this one loves his scritches too.

If you’re going out… take a sweater!

It’s still pretty cold in my little corner of the Grid. So I was pleased to see Jazzixa Casalet for Prism set out this cozy set of Sweater, jeans and boots as the January group gift. That’s right, you get a complete outfit including the boots all for free for us Group members. And double yay… the group is free to join.

Straighten up my crown

I’ve been shopping at the Epiphany again. This time I played the heck out of Doe’s “Yas Queen” Gacha. I was lucky enough to pull my own set of ginger pretty quickly. But I’ll be going back for the little crown that’s also in the Gacha. Too cute! Each hair comes with a HUD to style the bangs two different ways as well.

After a long weekend of busy and running around, I am happy to get back on the Grid for some relaxation.  So I headed straight to my new favorite place to wander: Soul2Souls Highlands.

Roses for days

Luckily I had a brand new outfit to wander about in. I especially pleased with my new jeans. These are the ‘high waisted boot cut jeans’ from the Sissy Bar. These are the 1L Hunt prize for the New Years Hunt running until January 31. Just find the little red question mark somewhere in the store and they can be yours too!

Sizes Included

Staying Cozy

I needed a nice cozy top to go wandering, these Highlands are still pretty chilly, ya know. So I made a stop on the marketplace to find the perfect new sweater. And !gO! was my “Go -to”. This is the ‘Balbina’ sweater and it’s a 1L gift from !gO! on the marketplace. There are several great 1L gifts on !gO!’s page so check those out too.

Happy New Year, indeed!

Happy New Year, indeed

We are a week and a half into the new year but I think it’s still time to say “Happy New Year”! Why not, right? 2019 is rolling along and I still want it to be “Happy”!

Happy X three

Hilly Haalan must agree because there is not one, but three “Happy New Year” free gifts set out for us. They are all lovely but this one is my favorite. This is the ‘Katelyn’ sweater and the ‘Kylie’ leggings. The gorgeous scarf is removable and resizable for a perfect fit. The gift also has a fantastic pair of stiletto heels to match. Just join the Hilly Haalan group, which is free to join, and help yourself to a ton of great current and past gifts. You will not be disappointed!

Tweed

Tweed

As Stan told you, Gabriel is having a huge clearance sale and an entire section of the store is all priced at 1Linden! You could get an entire wardrobe for the price of one piece of clothing. And from a premier Second Life designer!

Outdoors

After I picked up this stunning tweed jacket and bag, I headed out to my new favorite hiking spot, confident that I was the best dressed man on the SIM. ( Stop rolling your eyes, Juli ) The ‘Zip Up Tweed Jacket’ comes with the smart leather bag but you can wear each separately. Each color of the jacket is sold separately but at this price, you can easily scoop up all of them if you so desire. This amazing sale will certainly not last long so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • XXS – XL Mesh

Tackling Two Resolutions at Once

Woodsy Green

Hello there Fab Free!  I’ve been on the lookout for wintry menswear items to share with you all seeing as how that’s one of my New Year’s resolutions.  Ripley told me about this awesome free denim jacket and hoodie and wouldn’t you know it?  A certain female blogger beat me to it!  This time, when I heard about the fantastic clearance sale going on over at Gabriel, I didn’t give her a chance to see if any of the dollarbies would fit her avatar.  I sent her on a long walk with the pupster, and headed over to the shop myself to see what I could pick up.

Fisherman’s Knit Sweater

Another of my goals for 2019 is to do  more fishing with (or without) man’s best friend.  I’m still not so sure at all that Ripley is man’s best friend.  First, he abandoned me to run off for an almost empty box of Ripley snacks, then he went and told Kat about MY denim jacket/hoodie.  Anyway, I might not have a fishing pal, but I certainly have a thick, high neck sweater to ward off watery breezes.  I really like the olive green and chunky knit on the sweater I scooped up at the Gabriel Clearance Sale.  It set me back just one Linden dollar and is sure to become a chilly weather fave.  Although the package didn’t include versions for mesh bodies, by adjusting the alpha layer on my Slink Physique body, I had no problem finding the right size for me.

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Olive Chinos

While grabbing the High Neck Sweater, I spotted a pair of olive Chinos out of the corner of my eye, and thought they’d be a perfect match for my new fishing top.  Once again, there was no version for mesh avatars in the package, but since these pants were on sale for just 1 Linden dollar, I decided to give them a go.  As you can tell from my photo, after adjusting the alpha layer on my mesh body, they worked out swimmingly.  Ugh, maybe I should have chosen a different descriptor.  Who wants to think of swimming when you are going fishing?  I’ll just test my luck, I guess. 😉

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

What Fishing Trip Would Be Complete Without Boat Shoes?

The answer would be not many.  Gabriel had me covered, again for just a 1 Linden dollar investment.  At the Clearance Sale, you can pick up this handy set of footwear in multiple hues, all for just 1 Linden dollar each.  I’m wearing the Camel colored set, but you can also pick up similar models in blue, red and red brown shades.  They were not designed for mesh body feet, but since they could be repositioned, I was easily able to get them to fit just right, without having to use the alpha layer.

I’m sure there will be more posts featuring items from the Clearance Sales over at Gabriel, I happened to spot a familiar blogger there shopping, and I picked up a few more items myself.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Under the Milky Way Tonight

Under the Milky Way tonight

Well, hello there 2019! I took a couple of “Technology free” days to start my new year and I feel all fresh and ready to tackle ’19.  I hope all of y’all are ready to rock the new year too!

Follow that Ninja Cat!

One of my favorite … but kinda peculiar Hunts, is the Kiyomizu Hunts. The hunt takes place on the huge Kiyomizu Mall SIM that is designed in a beautiful Japanese theme. Most of the designers here are Asian and ones I’m not very familiar with. But like travelling to a new country, you just wander around and take in the culture. Take your time when you visit, wander around… I bet you’ll enjoy it too.

As you wander around, keep an eye out for the Hunt object: a ninja cat ->

The free prizes range from gorgeous to quirky.

Milky Way, one of the designers I am familiar with, has this lovely tunic length sweater for their free prize. I really love the details and the build is spot on. The Kiyomizu Hunt runs until January 7th so don’t wait around.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

A Sharp Start to the New Year

Dressed for Success

Happy New Year, Fabulous Readers!  The other day, I told you about the Sense Event, showed a free gift I picked up there, and mentioned that there was another present there for the guys.  I decided to start off 2019 by sporting the second outfit I picked up – the Casey Formal Set by Alter.  Again, the generous designer has tucked everything you need for a complete outfit inside this free package.

Dressed for Success

Featuring a long sleeve, button down shirt, gleaming black trousers and lace up shoes all in black, this outfit is sharp looking, and can easily take you from a casual day of shopping with your lady to a night out on the town.  I really like the sheen of the pants because they contrast just enough with the top to add visual interest, yet still coordinate with the ebony theme.  The shoes are worn separately, but the clothing comes as a packaged set, so getting dressed quickly is a snap.  To add Casey to your SL closet, travel to the Sense Event, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.  The free box contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, but I did have to switch to a different mesh body than my usual Belleza because there is no Jake option in the package.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Shoes for classic, Signature, Slink and TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreaming of January

Dreaming of January

This is very last minute, FabFree-ers. But when I opened this Hunt prize box and saw this gown… I was speechless. And those of y’all who know me, know that doesn’t happen often!

Crystalline Perfection

This is the ‘Crystalline’ gown from Salty and its the free prize for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  The Hunt ends today, folks… but you don’t want to miss this gown.  The details and build are stunning. If you zoom in on the fabric you can see a delicate overlay of snowflake lace. It’s just beautiful. And Brides, wouldn’t it make a  gorgeous wedding dress?

Lovely Sara

Lovely Sara

The year is coming to a close, FabFolks. All the glitter and excitement of Christmas is past and all eyes eagerly look forward to the new year. Is it just me or does this time of year feel… I don’t know… misty and dream-like to anyone else?

Dream Dress

Maybe it’s this lovely new dress that has me all dreamy. This is ‘Sara’ from a new-to-me designer – OA -Meo. I was wandering the Versus Event and saw that OA – Meo had set out a little 10L gift for everyone and I am so happy I picked it up. ‘Sara’ comes in a full fatpack of colors in both solids and ombres and you can wear it two ways. With both the “Up” and “Down” skirt like I’m showing or wearing just the “Up” skirt will make it a lot more daring. The craftsmanship is really great and I love the textures and colors.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • Werwolf Fitmesh

 

A quick note- When you land at the Versus Event, you have the invitation to join the Versus Group. It has a one time fee of 50L. You do NOT need this group to pick up the OA-MEO gift I’m showing. However, there are tons of other gifts at the booths that do require the group.
