Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

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

Here are the details:

Christmas Fireside

Silver and Gold
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Gosh, can you believe Christmas is almost here?! I swear I’m missing a whole week somewhere. lol The good news is if you’re still in need of some holiday decor, and a big beautiful fully decorated tree, MarmeladnyGirl has you covered with their current group gift. Also, I said before I was going to spend the month of December mostly in pajamas. Thankfully the Moondust Cart Sale booth is helping me do just that! Also for today’s post, what better way than in pajamas to show off new full body ink? This cool tattoo is by Vegas Tattoo, and won’t break the bank. Keep reading for all the info about these Fabulous finds.

Christmas Tree, Fireplace, and More – I’m always in awe of incredibly generous group gifts. The current group gift at MarmeladnyGirl is just that, incredibly generous. Not to mention these items are really nice! The gift comes with the Christmas tree shown, the fireplace with garland and twinkle lights, the Love sign, and the rug with “Merry Christmas” pillows. Also included but not pictured are a cute little snowman figure, and a plate of delicious looking cakes. Each of these items is able to be copied, and can be resized.  To get your package from MarmeladnyGirl just head over to their shop and join the in world group. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Pajamas – I’m not sure if this flannel and matching panties really counts as pajamas, but this is definitely something I’d wear to bed, so it counts in my book! This matching set is one of the 10 linden items at the Moondust Cart Sale booth. This cute set comes in many sizes and the items can be worn together or separately.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Tattoo – This tattoo by Vegas Tattoos is a genuinely full body tattoo, it even has hand tattoos. It is a unisex tattoo so gentlemen, you can rock this tattoo also.

Just a Delicate Snowflake

Delicate Snowflake

Hello dear Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I said thank you for being here, so thank you so much! Really, there’d be no point to the Fab Free blog without you. That said, I’m happy I get to be here too! I still cannot get over how much there is going on this Holiday Season. I don’t know why, it is probably like this every year, but each year it always seems pleasantly overwhelming. So many gifts and inexpensive finds, so little time! haha Yep, it’s a good problem to have. For today’s post I picked up a few gifts at Redeux and I couldn’t resist another stop at The Cart Sale. As always, I’ll have all the information below.

P.S. Redeux ends on the 21rst so don’t wait! 

The Romper – This little black romper with ruffled shorts is the free Redeux group gift by The Forge. Simply wear your Redeux group tag and click the gift waiting at The Forge’s event booth. The Redeux group is free to join if you’re not a member. This cute little number comes in a single unlabeled mesh size. It fit Pru’s Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly, so that would be my “size” guess.

The Facial Piercings – Axix also has a gift at this round of Redeux. Their free gift is this set of unique triangle shaped facial piercings positioned below the eyes and under the lower lip. They come in the gold color shown, and can be resized and positioned. I would definitely consider them to be a unisex accessory. Again you will need the Redeux group tag to get this gift.

The Snowflake Tattoos – These pretty snowflake upper body tattoos are one of 10 linden items available at The Cart Sale by InnerJoy Love Tattoos. The tattoo comes in an Omega applier, a Maitreya applier, and a classic system tattoo layer. I love when designers continue to include classic layers with their applier products!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Keep Calm

Keep Calm

Hello Fab Free’rs! Does any one know what day it is? I am feeling the hectic side of the holidays and sometimes I don’t know if I am coming or going! Luckily I have you guys, some good friends, and a cup of hot tea to remind me to slow down a minute and relax. I also get to take the time to share with you more fantastic Cart Sale finds and a fun addition from the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt.

The Sweater & Boots – Even my shoes are telling me to be calm today! These boots by De’Fient Unicorn are available at The Cart Sale and the best part (in my opinion) is the message on the sole of the shoe. It reads “Keep Calm and Activate Unicorn Power.” These shoes come in Maitreya and Slink sizes, and include a color change hud with 5 preset options. Also at the De”Fient Unicorn Cart Sale booth is this pretty playful sweater dress. I chose to wear it with jeans because, baby it’s cold outside! It comes in several mesh sizes and has a texture change hud with 5 patterned/graphic options to choose from. Also, this item has an alpha layer and is suitable for classic avatars!

Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ebody, TMP, Fitmesh (XS-XL), Model M, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) Ocacin, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – This cute pink wire reindeer antler headband is one of several 5 linden Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt prizes at Oleander. Each of the 5 prizes includes 2 head accessories. There are two types of headbands, and fuzzy earmuffs to be found. You just need to find the “hidden in plain sight” little blue stars at the Oleander shop. I added a copy of the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt key for Oleander below. Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Most of the items are just 10 linden each, however the wood burner is 50 linden.

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Queen of the broken hearts

Queen of the broken hearts

So tomorrow is the last day of the Cart Sale at The Wash. But don’t panic, you still have the rest of today and tomorrow to go wander around and buy as many 10L things as possible. And don’t forget to grab the freebies that are available at many of the carts as well. I’m playing my favorite game – “how many free/discounted items can Allison wear at once?” It’s a super fun game because I always win! Today I’ve managed to show you three more cart sale items. Each one will only set you back 10L.

inSanity

My lipstain is made for Genus heads but fits fine on my Catwa head as well. There are 7 different shades available, all as Omega appliers. They’re all really nice, wearable shades.

Vicarious Youth

This cute layered top is from Vicarious Youth. I love the graphic and there are a few others to choose from as well. There are no fitted sizes, just 5 classic sizes L-XXS but I had no trouble wearing it with a few alpha cuts.

Sin Original

And then there are these sweet jeans. they come with a HUD so you can change them to 5 different patterns/solid colors. There are also sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

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!

Hair – Magika [03] Little

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Applier) – champagne

Head – CATWA HEAD Gwen

Nightie – :::The 100::: Adley Nightie : Orange – 10L @The Cart Sale
