Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.  Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!  There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.  Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.  You deserve it! 🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Extra Frill

Lacy Sweater
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are sure happy to be back in Second Life, and we’re also super excited to share our latest Fabulous Find with you.  We discovered this lovely Sweater With Lace Frills as a free group gift upstairs at Sweet E’sDesigns.  With its long sleeves and cozy knit, this soft green dress is sure to keep you toasty warm on mid-winter mornings.  What I really love about this frock is the lace trim on the cuffs and hemline, which adds a decorative, feminine touch that I thought was just so pretty!  Since I was blessed with a sunny day, I chose to wear the outfit with bare legs, but I am sure it would look just as beautiful with a coordinating pair of leggings.  The free gift package for members of the Sweet E’s group (free to join) includes fit mesh for classic avatars, as well as versions for mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Separate alpha layers for dress and lace
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Are You Feeling Lucky?

While I explored the shop, Ripley laid down in front of the four lucky chairs located at the top of the stairs.  I’m thankful he did, because after a short time, he ran over to me, grabbed my hand, and gently led me over the a chair with a wild card ? on it.  I came away with a 100L Sweet E’s gift card in addition to my lovely new dress.  So, I’d suggest keeping an eye on local chat to see if your special letter pops up, too.  I can’t wait to put my gift card to good use!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

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

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Fabulous New Year’s Eve!

A Fabulous New Year's Eve

The Fabulous Bloggers L to R: Aline Passiflora, Astrid de Manyet, Serena Snowfield, Love Trill, Prudence Rexroth, and Carson Caiben

Champagne and Confetti

It’s pretty hard to get all 6 of us together in the same place at the same time, but we somehow managed to do it this year for New Year’s Eve. Love brought the champagne, I brought the confetti and silly glasses, and as you can see, a fabulously good time was had by all. 😀

What brought us together was this super cute party pose by {NANTRA} Poses, which was sent out as a free gift to subscribers. The gift includes bento poses for 5 people, as well as confetti, three types of 2018 eyeglasses, and champagne flutes for everyone (but not the bottle Love is holding, sorry).

NOTE: Since the pose gift is only for 5 people, and we have 6, I pulled a pose from {NANTRA}’s 2015 NYE gift and popped it on the end. You can see Carson modeling this one on the right.

The Happy New Year Backdrop we’re standing in front of is a free gift from Serenity Style. No group required; just click the vendor and pay 0L.

On behalf of all of us here at Fabulously Free in SL, we hope your New Year was a happy one. May 2018 bring you all the joy, happiness, and health you desire. ❤

Toasting the New Year

Toasting the New Year

Happy New Year, fabulous readers!

I know some of you have already celebrated, and some of you might be celebrating right now. I’m having a quiet evening of hot cocoa and s’mores with my new buddy Bruce… although he looks as if he’d like to snatch the marshmallow right off the stick here, lol!

Midnight isn’t just the start of a new year, but it’s the end of some fantastic gifts and deals. A couple of these expire when the clock strikes twelve tonight, so be sure to jump on them right away!

A Gift and a Giveaway

My jacket is the latest group gift from Aleutia. The Carol Jacket comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUGE texture-change HUD. Seriously, you can change just about any part of the jacket to just about any color you can think of. You could have a different jacket every day of the month if you wanted to!

Silly me… when I joined the Aleutia group a few days ago, I didn’t take the time to read the group notices. Little did I know, there’s a HUGE GIVEAWAY currently going on… and I was stunned this morning when I got a notice that I had been selected as one of the winners!

Here are the details from the group notice:

“From Christmas Day until New Years, I’m going to be randomly giving away goodies to group members, from gift cards to new releases, several shopping sprees, and on January 1st, to ring in the new year, I’ll be giving away 10,000L!

Now that’s a great way to start things off, yes? Woo-hoo! Tell your friends and let’s see if we can hit my New Years Resolution of 1,000 group members! If so, I’ll choose at least FIVE lucky winners for the 10,000L drawing!”

So… join the Aleutia in-world group TONIGHT if you want to be eligible for the 10,000L giveaway tomorrow! Even if you don’t win the giveaway, you can still pick up this cute jacket, as well as quite a few other group gifts that are still available. It’s a win-win!

Cozy Tootsies

Juju recent set out some adorable boots as a group gift. The UGZ Xmas Gift boots come in the white version I’m wearing here, as well as a cute red holiday version. Sizes are for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. I love the knit sock sticking out of the top.

FYI, Juju is currently running a Facebook promotion: “like” their Facebook page before January 15th for a chance to win a gift card of up to 3,000L (if you’ve already liked the page, you’re already entered in the drawing). More information about the giveaway HERE.

Shop ‘Til You Drop…

Or… until midnight, when everything goes away! 😯

Last week, Astrid shared some gifts she picked up at the GINORMOUS Shop ‘Til You Drop event. Well, I popped over and picked up a few gifts myself, including this gorgeous gazebo by CONSTRUCT. There’s even a low land impact version in the box, in case your land is overflowing with stuff like mine is.

This really is a lovely and generous gift, especially since you can remove the snow and use the gazebo all year ’round.

Have a fabulous New Year’s, everyone!

Ready for a Christmas Party

Christmas Party
Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I could use a fun swanky Christmas party. I’ve even found a cute holiday outfit to wear. Now all I need is some spiked egg nog and a house full of friends! In this post I’ll tell you how to get this complete outfit for FREE, right down to the sparkling shoes!

Hot Elegant Clothing

Look no further than Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC for this sexy holiday ensemble. Now through December 31st you can join the HEC in world group for FREE and pick up this outfit for FREE. The outfit includes the corset style top, skirt, and legwarmers. There are several mesh sizes included, and alpha layers for classic non-mesh avatars. Probably the coolest thing about this outfit, other than how cute it looks, is the HUD it comes with. There’s a detailed HUD that lets you hide or show individual parts of the outfit, or the entire thing. For example, you can choose to hide or show the bows, or only have the skirt showing.

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

ChicChica

The festive earrings and gem encrusted holiday heels are part of the FREE gift under the Christmas tree at ChicChica. In the gift you’ll get the shoes in 2 sizes, and 2 pairs of earrings. There are the red and green layered earrings shown, and a pair of ornament earrings (not shown). To get your copy of this FREE gift, just head over to ChicChica and purchase the gift for $0 linden.

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m finally feeling the holiday spirit, thanks to some amazing gifts and deals. So hang on to your sleigh – we’ve got a lot to cover here!

Silver Bells

I was so thrilled when I got the notice that LeLutka was sending out their annual Spirit Tree. This year’s tree is a beauty: snowy green with big, silver decorations. And the best part is that it’s completely FREE!

Just join the LeLutka in-world group (NOT the LeLutka For Me users group) and save a copy from the notices. Or head over to the store to pick one up, if you’d rather. Lots of past group gifts are available (including FREE hair), so be sure to grab those as well, if you haven’t already done so.

The Spirit Tree is resizable with a right-click > edit > stretch. Be sure to watch your land impact, because the tree gets more “primmy” as it gets larger.

More Advent Gifts

[CIRCA] Living is hosting their 8th Annual Advent Calendar, and the gifts are really lovely!

This year’s Advent is a bit different:

  • From Dec 1 – 24, [CIRCA] will be offering a new advent item (up to 4 per day) in a numbered square.
  • This works similar to previous years except there is a new in-world group to join: [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents. It is free to join – just look for the RED group sign beside the large Advent tree on the wall.
  • You must wear your group tag (see above) to buy the contents of each square, except for the 0L surprise days. Each item will be 1L – 75L for any given day in the Advent tree. You can purchase any or all of the gifts for that day.
  • Sometimes there will be bonus squares on surprise days for an extra gift or color variation for group members, so don’t miss those.
  • On the Eve of Dec 24th, the group will be closed. Those still in the group at that time will receive the final gift on Dec 25th.

Sample items are on display in the store, and more will be displayed as the days go on. Each day’s gifts are only available for 2-3 days at a time, so don’t wait too long to check them out!

I’m showing a few [CIRCA] Advent items here (please note that not all are still available):

  • “Northern Forest” Hanging Christmas Words (over fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Holiday Garland 2a -Azure/Silver (on fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Stool – Cocoa Trees (right of fireplace)
  • “Frostine” Snowflake Gift Boxes (under tree – still available at the time of this post)

At the time of this post, days 9 – 12 are still available for purchase, including a really cute FREEBIE on day 9 (you want it, trust me).

Holiday Blues

I’m not feeling the blues, but I’m definitely wearing them! Not long ago, we welcomed I.M. Collection to the Fab Free Designer family. This made me happy because I really love their stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed, lol)!

So today I’m wearing I.M. Collection’s new gift for Fab Free group members, which includes both the dress and heels. Dress sizes include Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as a Fitmesh version. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet.

To pick up your gift, pop on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the I.M. Collection in-world store. You’ll find the Fab Free gift next to the fireplace around the corner.

P.S. If you join the I.M. Collection group for 50L, there are 12 MORE GIFTS for you to pick up, as well as one for SLF&O group members. 😀

Look at These Nails!

Look at These Nails!

Seriously, I am really loving these nails from LIVIA. And the best part is that they are a completely FREE gift for the Women Only Hunt 4.

The Snow Royale nail appliers work on Slink and Maitreya mesh hands, as well as hands that are Omega compatible, such as Vista and Tuty (Omega installer sold separately). Four different designs are included, so depending on your hands, you can wear all the same design, or different designs on each finger, as I’m doing here.

NOTE: This hunt allows decoys, and there is at least one that I found in the store. But hang in there; the “real” snowflake is not too hard to find, especially if you have the clue before you go hunting. 🙂

Snow Chains

Before I end this very long post (sorry!), I want to mention my necklace, which was an Advent calendar gift from Snowpaws. The Metal Snowflake Necklace was the gift for day 4. It is not resizeable, but you can reposition it.

Like the Advent calendars I mentioned previously HERE, Snowpaws’s calendar gifts do not expire after one day, so you can still pick up all the previous days’ gifts. There’s an interesting selection of gifts, including jewelry, accessories, and home decor items. All gifts are completely FREE, and you don’t even need to join a group! 🙂

Enjoy!

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Sunday to you!  Ripley and I encountered this cute, book-loving duo on the Deciduous sim, and I just had to pose with them to take a snapshot.  Aren’t they both adorable?  Mr. Chippers was busily stuffing his cheeks with Christmas cookies while Peeps was scolding him to save some for a poor, hungry bird.  I do hope there will be at least a few crumbs leftover for him!

White as Newly Fallen Snow

While we were out doing a bit of holiday shopping, the pupster and I paid a visit to Sweet E’s Designs, and I spotted a lovely lacey mini dress on the Midnight Madness board.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a quick tap, and continued on my way.  The next morning when I logged in, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer, and quickly set to work opening the package.  Nestled inside, I discovered the White Lace Dress I had hoped to win the day before.  I added the Maitreya applier, and presto – the bodice of the dress instantly appeared, hugging my every curve.  With its vertical piping, plunging neckline, and four gleaming buttons, this dress is just so pretty.  I love the loose cuffs that you add to the sleeves that give the outfit a romantic feel.  An optional collar and skirt panel completed the look, but since the temperature dipped quite low in my area today, I decided to remove the skirt panel and don a long, flowing maxi skirt instead.  This gift makes an adorable mini dress, but also does double duty as a beautifully textured top as well!

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Maitreya, Eve, Omega, Slink and TMP
  • Jacket, shirt and pants layer for classic avatars
  • Sleeves, collar and skirt panel (skirt panel has varieties for mesh and non mesh avatars)

In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman

Well, Izzie Button actually made the snowmen, and boy are they darling!  Set out under the tree at her shop as a free holiday gift to all, are two adorable pearl snowman earrings, each adorned with a bow tie and top hat.  She also included a texture change HUD so you can alter the hue of the pearls by selecting one of nine color options.  I opted to keep the pearly white tone to coordinate with my top.  You can see them better in my close up photo below.  No group membership is required.  All you need to do is teleport to Izzie’s Mainstore, and look under the tree.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the winter blush Serena mentioned in her post {HERE} as well as candy cane eyeliner that Love blogged {HERE}.

Hello Little Snowman

Sad News for Peeps

I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Chippers stuffed every single cookie from the bench into his cheek pockets.  Poor Peeps!  I promised him that Ripley and I would head over to the farm supply store and pick up some birdseed for him, but I think he was really looking forward to that gingerbread.  Hopefully a full bag of sunflower mix will help to console him.  Until next time, happy shopping!
