Oh Deer

Snapshot_001
Hi there Fabulouses!  As I was updating the FabFree Holiday Advent Listing (no.. it’s not quite done yet – still working on it and I will be sure to announce when it’s ready!) over the last couple of days, I was in the mood for a little taste of Christmas.  It was perfectly timed that Zenith put out a new holiday themed group gift, as it was just what I needed to complete my look.

Adding a little holi to your day

At Zenith, when you join their free inworld group you gain access to a plethora of free group gifts including the latest gift – The X’mas Group Gift (2016) that includes the following:

  • X’mas Deer Headband
  • X’mas Deer Headband w/ Stars (as shown on my avatar)
  • X’mas Deer Tail

As I mentioned, there are plenty of other group gifts to pick up there as well, and many of them have been blogged here on FabFree if you would like to see a bit of a refresher of some Zenith group gift posts:

  2. No Rain In Here by Love

Sparkling Sn@tch

Like the sparkly sweater I am wearing today?  Me too!  This Tatum Sweater can be found in a fatpack of colours at Sn@tch in the riot vendors which you can find in the VIP Lounge area.  If you time it right, depending on the amount of people standing near the boards, you can pick up this fab sweater in ALL the colours as low as 45L!  TP in your friends and family to help bring the price down.

Snapshot_006Hi there Fabulouses! Have you seen the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch?  If one of our previous posts, such as [THIS ONE] or [THIS ONE] has tempted you into the purchase of a 7seas casual fishing rod (100L to purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch right near the pond in the VIP area), you should know that Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch changes out these HUGE prizes every couple of weeks and you can continue to use the same rod over and over again for new prizes.  Recently the Fish For This:  We Shall Rise outfit was put out and I am wearing a few pieces from the 23 piece set today!

In my photo above you will see me wearing the following:

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!
Coming soon to FabFree

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!

Reaching for the moon

Reaching for the moon

I don’t know about you dear readers but sometimes I use this blog as something of a destination guide. My fellow bloggers are such creative photographers that more often than not I find myself curious to see the sims that they’ve used as their backdrop. Follow your bliss is one such location and for this little adventure I’ve chosen to wear the aptly named Joy from Luzifee that you can get for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group. In the days of autumn oranges, browns, and golds, this smock dress will bring a cheerful dash of color to your Second Life wardrobe. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size with a good alpha layer included in the package. Not only is the uneven hemline of the dress unique but I adore the lovely patchwork pattern in the front of this dress as well. Even with my steadily growing inventory, I can safely say I don’t have anything in it like this free offering from Luzifee. So! What are you waiting for? Follow these steps to getting this gift and more:

First copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Secondlife Viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Second, click on the link in local chat and you’re done! Welcome to the group! Time to pick up some wonderful gifts!

I got lucky in finding the items to tie this whole look together. In the case of these boots, quite literally as I got them off the lucky boards at Sn@tch. Bring a alot a bit of a boots junkie I was ecstatic when I won the pair pictured. It was even more exciting when I discovered that there were a lot of options when it came to choosing the appearance of these boots as you can tint and texture different parts individually according to your fancy. There’s even the option to make the spikes shinier which I definitely did.

The hairstyle I’m sporting is one of the older ones from Truth called Roma and the good news is that you can get the color packs of all of the hairstyles upstairs in the discount area for only 50L. I’ve already a collection of hairs from this merchant and will certainly be sneaking up those stairs more often to expand!

Disenchanted

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulous Readers!  It appears I am not a very good witch as one once said… because the dead is still dead and my cat has two heads!

I suppose I should just park my broom and stick to what I know I am good at… finding fabulous freebies in Second Life.  It’s a shame because I really do dig the hats!  Well..  actually it was free – so let’s talk about that!  You might want to grab a brew and sit for a spell, because I have a lot to share today!

I did a little 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch yesterday as they have just put out a new 22 piece Coven Outfit in their pond that includes clothing items, shoes and accessories too.  The whole set is really cute, but I am wearing just a couple of the pieces today:  The Claire Sweater and the Witch Hat!  I used the Omega applier for the top, but there are system layers available for those not able to use Omega.  You will be able to fish for this set for another couple of weeks!

My Melena Heels are a free group gift at Phedora and they include a texture change HUD with a ton of different colour options.  These shoes are compatible with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies and make for terrific basic heels that match with everything.  The group is 300L to join, however there are several group gifts to pick up once you do that will make it well worth the fee!

Last, but certainly not least…  I have news about my hair too.  This is Pr!tty’s Yeemi hairstyle under my hat and it is available as a free Lakewood Haven Hunt prize in a full fatpack of colours!  This news might seem familiar to you if you are an avid FabFree reader, and that is because I shared another one of the prizes with you yesterday;) [HERE].  As I mentioned yesterday, this hunt runs until October 10th and all 10 prizes are worth searching for in my books!  Happy hunting🙂

Galaxies

Galaxies

My Second Life closet seems to have taken a leaf or three out of the pages of my first. It’s laughably messy for one thing, and for another, it’s slowly being conquered by t-shirts. Solid colored ones, ones with slogans or symbols or band logos…I find them difficult to resist and this was most certainly true with the t-shirt pictured. It’s perky purple and pink tie and dye design is simple but eye catching and needless to say I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped into the retirement sale room at Imbue. At 50L I felt that it was a steal but if you’re not as big a t-shirt fan as I am there are other clothing items at the sale for you to peruse. The shirt comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS – L) and has a very good alpha layer. While you’re there and if it strikes your fancy join the Imbue group for 50L and slap the Midnight Mania board or try your luck on the Letters. Oh and don’t forget to pick up the group gifts, one of which has been blogged by Prudence {HERE}

As the pattern on the shirt reminded me of galaxies I quickly paired it up with another closet staple of mine, the skater skirt. The one above comes from Mag<3 B‘s Marketplace store and will cost you only 5L. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS -XL) as well as sizes specific to Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies. The light and airy textures are wonderful and not only that it has a subtle dusting of glitter over it which I thought tied in nicely with the shirt.

Up next are the garter socks from Sn@tch and boots from Baby Monkey. These two stores were some of the very first I’ve stepped into in my first few days of Second Life and I’ve come back time and again because of their quality products and generous designers. The Shannon garter socks pack contains thirteen different colors of system layered socks as well as Omega and Slink applier HUDs. It’s currently in one of Sn@tch‘s riot vendors and I got my copy at 63L. If you’re planning on getting these bring a friend or seven. Sn@tch has six riot vendors and you can try to see just how low you can bring them. When you’re done hop by to Baby Monkey to pick up these boots. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee and past group gifts like those cute boots above cost 10L each.

The skin I’m wearing is 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ latest group gift called Klaasje. I love the subtle makeup on the skin as well as the fact that this month’s gift was really very generous. Two system skins in the tone Caramel, Lelutka and Catwa mesh face applier, shape and eyebrow shape along with a style card. 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group fee of 150L but the Klaasje skin and all past group gifts will be available to you for free this month so it’s most certainly worth it. To get a look at the male group gift by 7 Deadly s{K}ins it’s been blogged {HERE} by Loki.

To top it off is the Lyra hair from Alice Project that you can get for free by slapping their midnight mania board. There’s no group join required so this beautifully feathered style is just a click away. If colored hair is not to your taste the Lyra hair comes with a hud mishmash of fifteen different colors and I hope you find one that fits you perfectly. I did!

Wild Thing!

Wild Thing

I’m in love with the newest Sn@tch fishing prize! This one includes system and applier leggings (in three styles) and a full fatpack of different “wild” mesh tops that are super sexy. If you already have a 7 Seas fishing rod (the cost is 100L for the casual fishing rod) you can re-use it to fish for this amazing 22 piece outfit that also includes omega applier lipstick, arm bangles, and mesh gold eyes as well as these killer shoes I’m wearing in the photo above. The heels will fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza mid feet for all your mesh feet needs. The mesh tops come in all the standard mesh sizes.

I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below to give you a peek at a few of the other halter top options. Aren’t they just wild?!

Hitting The Books

Snapshot_006
It’s back to school time again!  The time of year when most kids sulk that their summer fun and sleep in days are over, but parents jump for joy!  As a Mom (and with a risk of dating myself :/), usually I jump for joy…  however this year I have one headed off to post secondary school away from home.  What a bittersweet experience that is!

Anyways, speaking of back to school…  Three are just a few more days left in the FabFree Back To School Photo Challenge!  Of course I can’t participate in the sweet linden prizes, but I wanted to participate in the challenge itself – just for the fun!

I put my cool back to school look together with some of the pieces of the 23 piece Sn@tch The Wanderer  7 Seas Fishing Prize, wearing the Jolie Skater Skirt, Ribbed Sweater and Wanderer Necklace.
