You Would Still Have My Heart

You Would Still Have My HeartI’d been pondering if it was too early to do a Valentine’s Day post. After all, Valentine’s Day is only a couple of weeks away. Then, the decision was made for me when I saw a group notice for the Petite Mort and Oubliette Valentines Hunt!

One Last Hunt

It’s really the perfect way to spend a chilly January day, hunting the stunningly beautiful Witchwood sim for Valentine’s goodies. And we’d better enjoy it while we can, because this will be the last hunt on the Witchwood sim as it is now. But don’t fret, Melora Frost (owner/creator of Witchwood and both stores) announced in the group chat that she will be redecorating the sim and relaunching both stores. She says that she plans to put the two stores next to each other and dedicate half of the sim to themed hunts. It’s a little bittersweet because the sim is so lovely as it is and I’ve definitely taken my share of photos there over the years, but also exciting to see what Melora will come up with next!

Hearts and Roses

Back to the current hunt – this time you’re looking for 18 conversation hearts scattered all over the sim. They’re not terribly hard to find, but if you have trouble just look for the Hunt Pack Info & Clues at the landing point. It includes pictures of the prizes and the hearts you’re looking for, as well as some tips and even a list of hints for the location of each one. Each prize costs 10L or 20L. I’m wearing two:

  • The denim jacket is 20L and acid washed to perfection
  • The cute “love tee” I’m wearing under it is only 10L

Both items are sized for Maitreya, Legacy, and Reborn.

In addition to the hunt, both stores are currently 50% off. It all officially started today and end on February 14th.

The Island

This amazing gown by Le’La was made specifically with Palomma in mind, and is free to everyone.  Just look for the poster of Pal’s face near the landing point, and you can buy it for 0L.  A lovely gesture.  I hope you’ll all join me in enjoying it and remembering her.

Fluttering Down the Path

Fluttering Down the Path

Here we go down a gentle path of the countryside with nary a care in the world.  How nice it is to spend some time in nature…

Hunting Again

There’s a quick and fun (and utterly free) hunt going on at Flamingos right now.  Just look around the newly renovated store for the little lollipops hiding all around.  They’re not too hard to find – and that’s my favourite kind of hunt!  I like hunting, just not if I have to remove my eyeballs to rest them after a few hours of searching!  Anyway, this one is painless, and you’ll find plenty of free gifts, just buy them for 0L and they’re yours.  I found the July dress which is very sultry and has some great details, especially on the back.  You’ll also find an extensive HUD for maximum colour options!

Fiddle Dee Dee

Belle Epoque Teleport hub GG_001

“Oh, dear! My stays are so tight, I’ll never ger through the day without belching!” I’m channeling Scarlett O’Hara today. Father has managed to invite most of the wealthy single men to a barbeque at Tara. Fiddle-dee! My frock covers more of me than I’d prefer but I do have to protect my skin to keep from getting freckled. Luckily I heard about this TeleportHub.com group gift at Belle Epoque. Let me tell you all about it.

You will have to wear the TeleportHub.com group ($10L join fee) tag to snag this one ladies. When you land at Belle Epoque & enter the building turn right. The gift is located on the right side of the wall. You can’t miss it. The Mademoiselle Caroline dress is sized for Maitreya only and comes with this one texture. I like the texture  as it looks oriental in nature. I don’t think Scarlett had a chance to wear anything Asian but I’m pretty sure she would have loved it too.

My parasol (every Southern Belle needs one) is one of the $10L gifts you can find on the Belle Epoque New Year Hunt. The hunt object is a golden 2023 and they are fairly easy to find. You can see the hunt key on the front windows of the store. The hunt runs until January 31.

That’s my quickie for today gang!

Peace, 

Cre

We Will Come Rejoicing

Emerald Couture $55 Thursday_001

While out wandering with my sheepies today we came across this serene little chapel in the woods. That old hymn, “Bringing in the Sheaves” popped into my twisted little brain and I started singing “bringing in the sheep.” My Ickci sheep can be testy at times and sometimes just plain baaaaahhhhdddd. See the one on my left jumping in the air – I can’t take them anywhere! I’ve been trying to herd them into to chapel for a dose of redemption. Wish me luck!

Get Cute for Under $75L

One of my many subscriber groups is the Fifty5 Thursday sales. I get a notecard with pics & store landmarks. You can subscribe by clicking on one of the subscriber boards you’ll likely find by the sale items. Emerald Couture had this really cute outfit listed. I picked up this lil number, Allie, for only $55L. This ensemble is too cute! You get the top, skirt, and shoes. The sale version comes in the colors/patterns shown, 

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HGF & Phy
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

After I made my purchase I spied a whole bunch of group gifts, mania boards, and lucky boards & chairs. I did what any self respecting blogger would do. I joined the free Emerald Couture group and scooped up most of the gifts. Hear me now: this is a great group to join. The lucky boards & chairs quickly turn over in a very short time. All said & done I managed to leave with 23 different packages, SCORE! I find the clothing selections varied and versatile. And the zero $L join fee is a huge plus. 

There you have it folks! A Creola Quickie!

Sugar On Me

Sugar On MeHappy Friday, FabFree! I am very ready for this weekend. I’m also very ready for freebie shopping, but when am I not? The things I want to show you today may be time sensitive. There’s no time to lose!

Sticky Sweet

There is lots of fantastic free-ness waiting for you over at Sugar Dolls. For starters, the group is free to join. That’s always a good thing, right? When you use my slurl and land, there is a calendar on the wall, right next to where you join the group. There are 31 free group gifts on the calendar, for Dec 1st through 31st and you can get ALL of them right now for free. Included among all the clothes and such I counted at least 1000L in free gift cards. So yeah, bunches of gifts plus a shopping spree. I’m for it.

The dress I’m wearing here is one that I purchased with my free gift cards. You can wear it with or without the puffy sleeves. I think it was 150L so that leaves plenty of money still to spend.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra Bimbo
  • Kupra Low
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Physique

I don’t know when the gifts will go away, but a calendar of December in the middle of January seems pretty precarious. I wouldn’t dilly dally if I were you. ❤

Pump It Up

DS Ghee bodysuit closeup 2_001

It’s the start of a New Year. Yes, indeed. Time to hit the gym to shed a few pounds, and tone up some sexy muscles. I made it to the gym today but watching all those men behind me work out & sweat (not the stinky kind) made me pretty darn thirsty. I couldn’t even think of exercising until I hydrate. Do I get points for just standing here looking fab?

The Right Stuff

Luckily I visited the latest round of Designer Showcase celebrating the 12th anniversary of this event. Most designer booths have gifts in them. You will need the Free to join group. I picked up this sweet bodysuit by Ghee that is perfect for working out as well as looking fetching. The Juliet bodysuit comes in the colors pictured.

Sizes

  • Kupra & Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn.

Why Not?

Okay, some might say my fine looking earrings are a bit much for the gym. I say hey, I have to look fab wherever I roam. The Mahogany Store has the Crystal earrings I wearing set out as a free gift at Designer Showcase. They remind of the old “bling” jewelry back in the old days of SL. They aren’t as primmy as the old ones so you can wear them knowing with confidence that you won’t crash a sim. Do you know that the owner & creator for the Mahogany Store started her SL life as a singer? Not only is she a fine performer, she’s a pretty awesome creator.

What’s your workout style?

With a Bang

With a Bang

Welp, here we are FabFree… the cusp of a new book with 365 pages to be written on.  A new pile of chapters just waiting for your indelible mark upon them.  Before that begins, let’s raise a glass to 2022.  Whether it brought happiness, lessons, or a bit of a bumpy road, let’s salute it, and all the things it brought us.

The Perfect Gown

You’ll need a dress for partying in, won’t you, Fabbies?  You know how we do it up inworld on New Year’s Eve – we get the best gown we can lay our mitts on, head out in finery, do some death-defying dance moves, and generally set the night ablaze.  You know, virtually.  I’m totally going to be celebrating in this amazing, sleek, and classy gown from Belle Epoque.  To get yours (in several different colours, all accessible via HUD), just join the Belle Epoque group for 50L and click on the vendor in the group gift area.  There are so many awesome gifts here, it’s a group I never leave.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite
  • Reborn

The Perfect Crown

To go with, I found this amazing 2023 crown by Moon Amore.  It’s so extra that it’s perfect for New Year’s Eve.  There are two different versions to pick up, and both are super lovely.  The Moon Amore group is temporarily free to join, so get in now and pick up this sparkly thing!

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly KissesI can’t keep up with all of the fabulous group gifts that so many generous designers are putting out lately. Tonight I tried to grab up a few, and here’s some of my haul…

Caboodle Cardigan

Caboodle is giving us a free complete outfit for Christmas! It includes a bra, skirt, boots, and the cardigan that I’m wearing. Really, an entire full free outfit AND each is a separate piece and sized for:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Caboodle is 100L to join and you’ll find some other fantastic gifts behind the front desk as well, there’s a nice little wall full. Once you’re in the group this and all of the rest are free for the taking. As you can see, I am only wearing the cardigan. I just love the way it hangs so prettily. Here’s the full outfit so you can see what the gift actually is:

Caboodle Update Group Gifts - Mila Outfit & Blair Boots (Holiday Edition)

One More Reason

There is another reason that I’m only wearing the cardigan. It allows me to tell you about another group gift that I picked up. You probably know Velour…a huge number of skin creators make their head skins to match Velour body skins. I wear them quite often. Well, right now there is a 250L gift card as a free group gift for the Velour VIP group. And even better, the group is free to join. I seem to be enjoying paler skin tones lately, so I took the opportunity to grab a lighter body skin. Each skin tone is 299L so it only cost my 49L with the gift card! There are all kind of add ons and body styles, as well as things for both men and women, so you’ll have a lot to pick from. Just know that you’ve got until January 1st to use the credit.

Hit The Dab

Hit The DabHello out there. Hopefully you, like me, are lazing your way through the week between Christmas and New Years’. Time spent however you want it to be, sometimes industrious and other times downright wasteful. And of course spent on favorite hobbies too, like sniffing out freebies and deals!

Dollar Pie

Pink Cream Pie is mentioned time and time again here on FabFree, because the group is awesome and loaded with perks. But what if you’re not in the group? Well, then this is the post for you, my friend. Pink Cream Pie has a dozen or so really nice items out there on SL Marketplace for only 1L each! I was a little bit conflicted about which one to actually show you but I mean come on, a hoodie of a dabbing unicorn with a sombrero and maraca? There really was no other choice. You can find it on the marketplace here, and you can see all of the 1L items excluding demos here. The hoodie comes in sizes for Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya and is a linden very well spent.

One more note on these marketplace dollarbies – from some light inventory searching most of these items appear to not be past group gifts, so people who are in the group will want to check it out as well. Dollar pie for everyone!

Free Skinnery

I’m rounding out my look with the latest free group gift skin from The Skinnery. It’s part of the illustrious Holiday Special event, which I’ve named “Lelutka & Friends” in my head. Whatever you call it, you can read the details here when Aline first broke the news on FabFree and it’s definitely one not to missed.

The Skinnery‘s free gift is this lovely Eve skin in a long list of skin tones, with brow and no brow versions of each. To get it you’ll need to join The Skinnery group, which is currently free to join. This is a paid group that I assume will go back to having a fee when the event ends after December 30th. You’ll find a whole bunch of other free group gifts in the store as well and in my opinion the group is worth staying to see what others are added.
