The Cart Sale – The 100

The 100
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I just cannot get enough of these 10 linden finds at The Cart Sale still taking place at The Wash. Not only have I been able to update some of my furniture, I’m getting some great new wardrobe pieces as well. If you’re unfamiliar with The Cart Sale, all the items available from any participating vendor are just 10 lindens.

The 100

Once again I’ve discovered a new-to-me shop, The 100. I picked out two personal favorites from their cart to share with you. I also really dig the store name, it makes me think of the television series with the same name, which I very much enjoyed. Shown on the left, I adore the soft sweet floral pattern on this nightie. It come in several mesh sizes and is a steal for 10 lindens. The cute cowl neck cropped sweater on the right is also just 10 lindens at The 100 cart. I like the sketchy red hearts and arrows,  it’s festive without being too frilly. Both items come in a few other colors as well.

Mesh Sizes Included (Nightie): Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
Mesh Sizes Included (Sweater): Fitmesh, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – lovey dovey :: Regan :: Unicorns

Skin – .:[PUMEC] :. – .:KENDRA:. – FREE Group Gift/Group is 299L to Join

Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Sweater – [Cubic Cherry] {Eiko} princess sweater – FREE Group Gift/Group is 66L to Join

To All a Good Night

To All A Good Night
Happy Holidays Fab Free! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and joy. For today’s post I did a little “shopping” for myself. Actually, I did some gacha-ing. I sat at my home and Pocket Gacha’d until my little heart was content. I have to admit, it was content rather sooner than I would have liked. My linden wallet is quite thin! lol Still, I had lots of fun using the FREE Pocket Gacha HUD without having to go anywhere. I had such fun in fact that I wanted to share my experience with you, and show off the equally fun items I gatcha’d.

e.Marie

I adore over-the-knee socks. These pretty striped socks are from the e.Marie items within the Pocket Gacha this round. There are tons of fun socks, some holiday themed, some not. I lucked out and got one of the Rare sets. This set included a color change hud with several preset options, and optional twinkle lights. The lights have their own hud as well. Also, this is important, you’ll want to make sure that you’re looking at the e.Marie gacha key for your body. Pru wears Maitreya Lara, so I had to be sure to play the “Lara” key for the e.Marie gachas. If that sounds confusing, I promise it is easy, you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the gacha keys on the hud. These cute socks by e.Marie are just 50 linden per play.

Sizes Available: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis)

Cubic Cherry

It just so happens that the Cubic Cherry sweaters have the possibility of matching quite nicely with the e.Marie socks. These cute fluffy sweaters are just 75 linden per pay. There are tons of commons and a few cute Rares to be had. These are sized for Maitreya Lara wearers only.  Again I felt lucky when I pulled this cute unicorn common from the Cubic Cherry gacha key inside the Pocket Gacha hud. I love unicorns, and this sweater says “99% Unicorn” across the front.

Size Available: Maitreya Lara Only

99 Percent Unicorn
LOTUS

These deep brown eyes are from the Pocket Gacha by LOTUS. Every once in a while I like to change things up and wear eyes that are different from the ones I usually wear. I love the details in these dark eyes by LOTUS. They are also very similar to the color of my own eye in RL. The mesh eyes come with resize scripts, and there is a Catwa applier for the Catwa mesh eyes. The LOTUS Pocket Gacha is just 60 linden per play and there are 15 pretty earth toned commons, and 2 hauntingly pretty Rares.

Essences

I love it when Essences participates in events and things like Pocket Gacha. For this round of Pocket Gacha, Essences has a full set of  Catwa head appliers. There are 10 commons, in the Pale02, Dark01, and Dark02 tones, along with 2 Rares, one Medium02, and the other Pale01. Body Appliers are not included, but can be purchased at the Essences main store. This set of pretty faces is called Lydia, and she’s just 58 linden per play.

P.S. You can also pick up a Pocket Gacha hud at most (if not all) participating stores.

Here are the details, Merry Christmas, and Happy Gacha-ing!!

Waiting for Christmas…

Only in My Socks_001

Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

Shop ‘Till You Drop!

Merry Kittymas_001

It’s Shop ‘Till You Drop Season, so it’s the perfect time to visit an event called … well… Shop ‘Till You Drop! And as I mentioned in my post {HERE} almost every booth has out a free gift that you can buy for 0L, no group required! I picked up my cute Merry Kittymas sweater at the Sweet Thing stall! I just love it! It comes in fits for Maitreya, as well as Belleza (Freya, Isis, and Venus).

Another December Gift

KoKoLoReS puts out a new group gift like clockwork every month, but right now if you hurry it will be absolutely FREE, because there is no join fee as of the time of this posting. I’m not sure how long this will last (the join fee is usually 250L) so hurry and get in on the deal and pick up the pretty free December gift of “Loulou” that I am showing off in the picture above. You’ll get a hud of natural colors to compliment your usual hair color too!

Merry Kittymas_002

While you’re there…

While your at KoKoLoReS, be sure to stop by the counter for some free gifts. There are three (3) gifts, no group required that you can buy for 0L. I picked up these Catwa mascara appliers for my eyelashes. The luxurious look is great for a formal look! Though I love them for every day wear too! They came in two styles… a longer eyelash look and a shorter eyelash look. In the picture above I have on the shorter eyelashes, and am using the eyeliner from the hud that comes with my Catwa head.

Ski Bunny

Ski Bunny

Well, the snow has finally found me in RL, and I’m not entirely complaining at the moment.  Maybe it’s the fact that it just looks so pretty as it falls from the sky, creating that Marshmallow World we’re all dreaming of.  I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune come January when the cars turn the white snow grey, and slush is pervasive.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts, so it’s time to hit the virtual slopes!

Chubby Bunny

This adorable bunny sweater by Me Sew Sexy will keep me warm on the slopes, and it’s a sweet gift at The Chapter Four event.  Pay a measly 10L to join the group, and pick up piles of gifts!  I literally spent hours unpacking, so the 10L fee is totally worth it.  This cozy sweater comes in two versions:  one with the hood up and one with the hood down, which you can see me wearing in the photo.  I guess it brings new meaning to the term snow bunny!  This gift comes in fitmesh to fit most avatars (Psst – the hood has bunny ears on it!  Eeek – so cute!).

Stock up!

I love wearing cute stockings in the winter, and these ones by Aim Glory are no exception!  How adorable are they?  I love the little reindeer faces!  These stockings are another gift at The Chapter Four and they come with appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Check Meowt!

Pr!tty has been consistently gifting out really amazing hair at events, and I’m very excited to add this one to my collection.  I pretty much love anything which is vaguely cat-like, and so these little lighted ears fit perfectly into my vast horde of cat things!  I especially love the fact that there are several different colour ears in the pack, named such things as “Mistletoe” and “Wrapping Paper” .  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and is very versatile.  Love it!

One More Thing…

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my fave gifts from The Chapter Four, but I had to add in this lipstick applier from Elise.  I love the sparkly look!   There are several different colour options, so you can play in the paint all day long.  In the box, you’ll find appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and TMP as well as System Layers.

I think I hear someone in the background calling me to come skiing.  I’m off to hide in the chalet!  Toodles!

Relax… and visit a friend.

Relax_001

Visiting a Friend!

This is a good time of year for catching up with friends. I was visiting a friend’s house this morning and I fell in love with some furniture he had out… this room divider and table. It turned out that he got it as a free group gift for the L’Homme Readers Group. Well I was all excited and wanted the gift for myself!

A trip to get my own…

So we took a trip to UnKindness, my friend kindly escorted me, and I picked up the free UnKindness Bamboo Hall Set for myself. It does come with decor but I like it just topped with a plant myself. I did include a vendor advertisement picture at the bottom of this post so you can see everything that is included in this great free gift. All the pieces are just 1 prim each so this is very low land impact and practical for setting out!

A new sweater too!

After seeing Love and Carson sporting their matching sweaters in their blog post {here} my friend and I decided we wanted those exact same sweaters. So we took a teleport to NUTS Inc to pick up the free POE Hunt prize there so we had something to lounge about the house in. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were matching ladies and men’s group gift sweaters out at the store too that were just as nice! The NUTS Inc group is only 5L to join and if you take your fella along, you can both have a matching sweater like the one I’m wearing in the picture above. I really like the classic colors and warm feel.

Sweater sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L with Alpha
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
