Shopping Spree!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I have another limited- time gift card annoucement, so I’ll get to it so you can grab the offer ASAP! This gift gives you a chance to go on a HUGE shopping spree at one of my favourite stores.

A 2,500 L Holiday Treat

I blogged about how Ari-Pari‘s advent calendar is delayed previously here. You may remember that they will be setting out their advent gifts later so keep an eye out for those in the future. On top of this, Ari-Pari has set out a 2,500 L gift card for their group members. That’s two-thousand, five-hundred lindens worth of store purchases! You need to be in the Ari-Pari group to get the offer, which only costs 25L to join.

Ari-Pari is known for their generosity and this holiday season is no exception. As many of their products are so affordable, you can purchase a lot of items with the gift card! I am sporting the Winter Forest Outfit, which is available at Winter Wonderland at Malus Park until December 31st. The set includes includes a cozy sweater and jeans, and you can change the patterns and textures of each piece to several different colour options via a HUD. This outfit costs 250L, leaving lots of room to purchase more! You can also use the giftcard on most items at the Ari-Pari mainstore. As far as I know, the gift card does not expire. I’m not sure how long this offer is available, so go, go, go!

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Ebody Curvy

Enjoy, FabFree!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland

Hey gang,

As promised I am back with more wonderful finds for your holidays!  Honestly, you need a list everyday to remember which places to check for advents, next ups, new events!  It’s enough to make a girl swoon with delight!

That Crazy Shop & Hop!

Here is another favorite find from Shop & Hop (which opens today, yay!  If you can’t get in, don’t you fret none!  It is open for a while, and it will be easier to get in after a couple of initial days), this time from Les Sucreries de Fairy… Sweater dress, wonderful leggings and fabulous hat (I love me some leggings and a floppy hat!).  This is a free gift at the Winter Shop & Hop (No group required!), amongst many goodies you can scoop up while you are there.  This outfit fits Maitreya Lara only.  But I bet the hat fits anyone!

My shoes are also a free gift at Shop & Hop, these are from Baiastice and they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy Ouch
  • Maitreya
  • Cinnamon Chai

They come with a HUD giving you a bunch of gorgeous colors to choose from so you can wear these little boots with *anything*!

Lastly my lovely hot cocoa with sparklers (I know, I told you, I can’t resist!  I’ve been trying to get this one every day since the Arcade opened!) is from Amitie and was 50L per play at The Arcade.

Well I am freezing from this walk, so I think my hot chocolate needs a refresher, stay warm y’all!

Hey gang!

Tis’ me!  I’ve been soooooo busy lately getting the advent started in my shop and helping Juli get the mall ready for Christmas, but I am still here.  Real Life gave me a couple of swift kicks lately too, but it’s nothing I can’t handle.  Especially when I’ve got yummy group gifts to show you!  And most especially when they have pink and Unicats on them, squeee!!!

I’ve been sneaking about the grid here and there and one of my most favorite things I’ve found lately is this super cute *older* gift from Pink Cream Pie.  When you join their group (314L to join), you not only get current gifts, but you get a hoard of older gifts too, which is where I found this beauty.

This cute sweater fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

More soon!  Hope y’all are staying toasty warm!

Hey Gang,

Jacx told you the start of a story in one of her posts a few days ago about three girls.  This story is ongoing.

In fact, Jacx is not the only gypsy wandering the grid right now.  Yours truly is as well.  I’ve even spent a couple of nights at the Fab Free Headquarters and as lovely as it is, it feels like staying at someone else’s house, like it’s nice and all, but you can’t wait to get back into your own bed.

It’s a strange feeling, since I haven’t been homeless in world since I first arrived those many years ago!  I’ve been fortunate to always manage to keep at least a small roof over my head.  Every night I lay my little avatar head down I think maybe tomorrow will be the day!  Sigh.

I really do hate when things are out of my control.  This is a big psychological challenge for yours truly!  The longer it goes on, the harder it gets.

Well, maybe tomorrow will be the day!

Meanwhile, Aline has been hard at work getting a new hunt ready for everyone to enjoy, and it is only a couple of days away!  Starting on the 8th, you can hunt in the Fab Free Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt.  It will run from the 8th to the 30th of November, and I’ve got a little sneak peek for you!

This cute dress is one of the hunt prizes from Roped Passions.  This is a 0L-5L hunt, and both the women’s and men’s prizes at this store are 0L.  (Matching sweaters!)  The sweater I am modeling fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus

Come on, tomorrow, bring us girls some happy news!!!

No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post,

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)
