Life in a Snow Globe

Life in a Snow Globe

Did you know that the Christmas season isn’t actually over yet?  Today is only the 10th day of Christmas, which means that there’s plenty of time for celebrating still.  I’m still busy reveling until the 6th, and I hope you will too.

Epiphany

Ashmoot are taking part in one of my favourite traditions – and that’s giving gifts for Epiphany!  When I was young, I’d always check in my stocking on January 6th to see if it had been filled!  You don’t have to wait til the 6th for the gifts at Ashmoot, you’ll find them all under the tree.  I clicked on the boxes and picked up the shorts for 10L, jacket for 20L and the little furry pompom earrings were free.  There are a few other goodies there too while you’re at it.  It all goes away on the 6th though!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Having a Snow-ball

I’ve often heard people ask if there are affordable ways to have a place to live in Second Life.  Rent can add up, and when you’re working on a budget it’s always nice to find somewhere that doesn’t break the bank.  If that place is really beautiful as well, then even better!  The Snow Globe sim aims to create a fun community living experience in SL, on an affordable scale.   You can actually get a home with 300 prims for FREE if you become an active member in their community.  That means taking part in events such as bowling, movies, game nights and more.   If you’re not so much into participating, you can still call Snow Globe home for 10L per week and 75 prims allotted to you.  Sound good?  Well head on over to the rental office HERE for further details!

Happy (still) Christmas!

A Marshmallow World

A Marshmallow World

It’s a marshmallow world in the winter!  And I insist on dressing for the weather, as you can see.  Time to build a snowman in a sexy outfit, because it’s Second Life, and that’s how we roll!

Well Suited

This quite interesting bodysuit and sweatshirt combo are a new free gift over at Grixdale. To get it, you need only click on the vendor, no group join required.  I quite like the urban look to it, giving me the chance to switch it up my look today.  It’s only out until the beginning of January, so don’t wait too long to grab it!

Sizes

  • Perky
  • eBody
  • Kupra

Snow Unicorn!

The unicorn snowman you see behind me is the latest group gift from Astralia.  Isn’t she adorable?  I love the pink lights and (of course) the unicorn horn.  To get it, just join the Astralia group for 149L and click on the vendor in the gift area.

Do you want to build a snowman?

Ho, Ho, Ho, I’m Playing in the Snow

LP Santa Lingerie #4 new

You might say I’m a bit crazy making snow angels in lingerie. Around the grid I’m known as CreCre which always translates to CrayCray in voice or text. So this is “normal” for me. Face it, you have to be at least a bit touched to be in Second Life.

Did you know that Santa makes his elves and reindeer perform calisthenics in the snow?? It toughens everyone up for that long Christmas Eve ride. No one can give up or poop out (not reindeer poop, for Rudolph’s sake!)

Another Free Hunt?!

The current round of Orsy officially ended on 12/21 but everything, including the free hunt gifts are still out so fly over and grab them. I can’t guarantee they will be there much longer.

The 10 La Perla Hunt gifts are free with the Orsy event group tag (free to join). You’re looking for a Santa sitting on a cupcake while holding a Merry Christmas flag. Today I am sporting the Santa Lingerie # 4. It’s a festive set without being too revealing.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Here’s a pic of all the free hunt items:

Full On Christmas

Full On Christmas

Ok, I’m going full Christmas now.  It’s all about twinkling lights, a hint of magic, and possibly a hot chocolate bar waiting for me when I’ve finished my never ending photo shoots!  I can hear jingle bells in the distance, can’t you?

Miix it Up

This month’s round of MIIX Event actually has some great free gifts for members of their free to join group.  There were lots of really lovely things that I totally wanted to show off, but when I came across the gift from DM, I knew this was the one to feature!  It’s a full outfit that includes the coat, bag, boots and earmuffs I’ve got on, and it’s all put me in a cutesy, semi-Victorian (if powder pink had been a thing back then…) mood.  Go on over to MIIX Event to grab it, you’ll be in the mood for skating and goodwill to your fellow man in no time!  You’ve got until December 20th to visit.

All twisted up

All twisted up

Good afternoon my FabFree Crew! Happy weekend to us all. Now that I have some free time on the Grid it’s time to dive into my favorite Hunt off the year: The Twisted Hunt! Yes, it’s stupid hard… and stupid frustrating and yes, I pull my hair out every year… I do love it. It’s such a challenge and finding that right cube is a real thrill. Plus, I think the designers really pull out all the stops for this hunt and we get some awesome gifts.

Like this sweet little harness and mini from Ari-Pari. The dress comes with a HUD for choices of color and three colors for the harness. Plus a switch to turn the harness on and off. Makes for a nicely versatile addition to your closet.

Just be warned. There are no clues and tons of decoys at most of the designers in this Hunt. But you can join the Twisted Hunt group for fun chat and a little help along the way. The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so get in there and get twisted!

Ivy League

Ivy League

Heyya Fab Crew! Is it too early to start thinking Fall things? Apple cider… Crisp days and chilly nights… Back to school and trees changing colors. I love Fall, it’s my favorite season. So when I saw this Autumn inspiring dress and sweater on the Uber Hunt, I knew I would be showing it off.

This is the “Mona” set from True Damage. And what a lovely free gift it is. The dress is one complete mesh piece for easy one click dressing! It comes with a great HUD to change the color of the skirt and the under tank. I picked one of the tartans because… Fall, ya’ll. 

Sizes Included

  • Alice
  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • SLink 

Adding to my “Falling” look today is my new hair from Tableau Vivant. This is “July” and you might have missed picking it up in store. The gift box is behind the front counter up on the shelf. The box is plain white and I know I overlooked it many times. But this is too pretty a hair style to miss out on. You get a nice styling HUD to push all the hair back behind your shoulders or leave one side down. Tableau Vivant makes some of the nicest hair on the Grid so don’t miss adding this free one to your wardrobe.

Stand Out

Stand Out

Heyya  Fabulous People! One of the best thins for me abut living on the Grid is I can wear anything I want! I can be as sedate or as wild as I feel like at any given moment. And some days.. I wanna stand out above the masses! And that’s just what this sweet little combo from Grumble is making me feel.

Both my new shoes and dress are free group gifts from the fabulous Grumble. They are just two of a ton more past gifts available for us members. And that group… free to join!

The ‘Knotted  Dress – Butterflies’ is more than just another mini. The super rich colors of the print on the black just pop. And the little detail of the knot at the hem of the dress makes it just that much more of a stand out.

Oh and these shoes! The ‘Lace up Black wedges’ could go with just about anything in your wardrobe. The details of the build are so perfect. But this IS Grumble we’re talking about so that’s no surprise.

Sizes Included for the Dress

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Sizes Included for the Shoes

Floating

Floating

Don’t mind me, I’m just pretending to be a mermaid.  I’m hanging out in the deeps, just floating along and letting go of all my cares.  Thank goodness I don’t need oxygen in SL…right?

Make a Splash

In my regular SL rounds, I stopped by Paper.Sparrow and checked out their lucky boards.  I was excited that the letter A was up on this awesome bikini that comes in a full fatpack of awesome textures and colours.  You can change the top and bottoms separately and go as crazy or staid as you desire!  You don’t even need to join a group to grab this cute swimwear (or the other prizes) just wait for your letter to come up – it’s all free!

  • Freya

Good Days

Good days

Heyya FabFree! I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start. It’s a slow kinda day for me here on the Grid. Just some Gacha and some hunting and time with family. By sundown, I needed a break! So I threw on some comfy clothes and me and the pupper headed off for a stroll on the beach. 

And what is this super cute and casual tee and shorts set I have today? It’s none other than the free gift for the Teleport HUB Group from Monomania. This is the “Nyah Star” set and you can get it for free if you’re a member of the Teleport HUB group. Now the group, as I’ve said before, costs a wee 10L to join. But then you can fill up your closet with awesome free gifts. Like Nyah Star! 🙂
