A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!

Holiday Selfies

Holiday SelfiesSo after the impromptu snowball fight the other day, I bet Love thought she’d got me showing up with a Rudolph nose and antlers for the photos of the Christmas group gift from Agapee. Really, she just looks darn adorable and the photos are great. There is so much emphasis on family around the holidays that it’s good to focus on friendships too. Friends are often every bit as important as family. These adorable dresses from Agapee were a perfect opportunity for us to dress up and take some photos. Sure, matching outfits may be a little silly, but who cares, that’s half the fun! The dress is fully mesh, including the arm-warmers, and there is a color change hud to change the shirt and skirt separately. Additionally the dress comes in several size/fit options for the perfect fit. The Agapee group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE with your group tag. This dress would be perfect for a holiday outing with friends, or a casual date!

Speaking of the cute glowing red nose and matching antlers Love has on, they are a recent subscribo gift from Hopscotch. You can get this cute holiday accessory for FREE just by heading over to Hopscotch and joining their subscriber. It really is cute and is perfect for adding some holiday fun to punch up your outfit and your photos.

Additionally, I stopped back by the White Elephant Fair for this pretty manicure set with matching rings from ZOZ. The whole love of nail polish is just part of my obsession with makeup! It spans both real life and Second Life. So that you can get a better look at the gift, I included a copy of the ad photo below. You’ll find this gift from ZOZ under the big Christmas tree at the White Elephant Fair for just 1 linden. Included in this pretty present are nail appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza nails, and a right and left version of the ring.

Knockers for the Holidays

Knockers for the Holidays

I cannot get over how many amazing gifts and hunt prizes and holiday goodies are available from all over Second Life this year. This has been one of the most festive holiday seasons I’ve experienced in my many years of being a Second Life resident. The designers have really outdone themselves, which makes this time of year that much more fun for all of us Fab Free’rs! hehehe

Speaking of great holiday gifts, Knockers recently released their December group gift and it’s a must-have! This holiday themed pea-coat is just too cute. I love the little details, and the contrasting lining. Check out the cute little gingerbread man in the pocket too! This is a FREE gift to all group members, and the Knockers group is a one time fee of 150 lindens to join, however there are exclusive monthly gifts.

To go with this great coat, I picked up these fun winter boots from ALB on the Marketplace. The boots are all decked out in pretty holiday fabric, and can be re-sized by clicking each individual boot. There are no “feet” required to wear the boots, and they also include a matching alpha layer. Not only are these boots really cute, they are completely FREE!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Dreaming of a White Elephant Christmas

My Gothic Christmas

As far as I am concerned you can still be goth and love the Holidays. Anyone who says different, well they are missing out! I spent an afternoon at the White Elephant Fair and had a really great time. There are tons of great bargains to be had from some wonderful designers. Additionally there are gacha machines all along the walkways and a huge Christmas tree overflowing with gifts from many of the participating designers. Several of the gifts are even FREE!

First things first, how cute is this dress? I love the cute argyle pattern of this fully mesh dress. It’s one of the gachas from Mutiny in Heaven. You can score one of several versions of this dress for just 35 lindens per play. The playful dress comes with a matching alpha layer, and standard mesh sizes. In addition to these fun sweater dresses, Mutiny in Heaven also has this gorgeous long hairstyle as one of their gachas. The hairstyle is called “Maeve” and is just 50 linden per play.

My Gothic Christmas Outfit

Now about those gifts I mentioned.  As those who know me know that I love bats, so this super cute Christmas hat with the bats from The Little Bat is of course my favorite of the gifts I found under the Christmas Tree at The White Elephant Fair. The Little Bat gift hat is FREE, just find the gift under the tree and purchase for zero linden.

Another personal favorite is this festive fuzzy jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The set includes a necklace (shown) and matching earrings (not shown) with fuzzy little pom poms. Included in the gift is a color change /resize hud that lets you resize and change the color of the metal parts as well as the pom poms. The White Elephant gift from Indulge Temptation is just one linden. As with all the White Elephant Fair gifts, you’ll find this one under the big Christmas tree.

Always a sucker for makeup, I was delighted to find the gift from Dust Bunnies under the White Elephant Fair Christmas tree. The gift is a set of lovely lip appliers in various shades of holly red. Included in the gift are appliers for Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink, as well as system tatoo layers for each shade. With all the appliers, and matching system layers, these lipsticks are a steal at just one linden for the set.

Finally, I seriously enjoy decorating for the Holidays. If I had infinite funds and free time, I would decorate the whole house with each season and holiday. Yes, I’m that person! Luckily for me, and for you, the White Elephant Fair gift from Yay and Stuff includes two wreaths, one black (shown) and one red (not shown), as well as a pair of reindeer slippers (not shown). The wreaths are able to be copied so you can put out as many as you like. This gift can be had for just 10 lindens.

All these gifts and the gachas are just a tiny example of the bargains to be had at The White Elephant Fair. I highly suggest everyone take some time to check it out. Even the scenery is worth the visit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Christmas Ride

Winter Ride

I love all the winter scenery around the grid right now. Everything looks pretty and sparkly covered with snow. It really is kind of magical, especially in a virtual setting. With so many places to explore, I donned some boots, and a warm cozy sweater and headed out for some fun in the winter sun.
Christmas Ride OutfitFor starters when picking my outfit, I had to have this FREE group gift sweater from Hudson’s. It’s a beautiful shade of red, with a frilly lace “undershirt” for some added detailing. The undershirt is not a separate piece, however there are optional add-ons for the sleeves and the hem of the shirt to add some extra frill. There is also a system layer, and an Omega applier for the undershirt strap detail that shows with the off-the-shoulder part of the sweater. Additionally, the sweater comes in standard mesh sizes. The Hudson’s group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss this great gift!

I also picked up these cute wellies from SinfulSky on the Marketplace for just 1 linden! The rubber boots come in 3 colors, all of which have a cute bow in the back. The boots do not require any feet and include an alpha layer if you’re not wearing a mesh body. They are also easily re-sized and positioned. At just 1 linden, you’ll want to add these to your closet for sure!

This pretty shoulder-length hairstyle is a FREE group gift from Sentinus. The style is called Eleanor, and she includes a color change hud with 16 color options. The Sentinus group is also FREE to join at this time, and there are other group gifts available as well. I think my favorite part of this hairstyle is the hairline, gotta love the little details!

There are so many advents going on right now, I know it’s hard to keep up. I know I’ve missed a few days at some of the stores. If you’re a sucker for a cute mani/pedi like I am, you’ll want to make sure you check out the advent gifts at Hello Dave. Each day there is a new gift with a new polish/polishes. The gifts are FREE and the group is FREE to join. Even better, you can pick up the gifts from previous days, so you don’t have to worry about missing one. I put on this red swirly sparkly polish from Day 3. The polishes are really pretty, and well worth the effort considering they are FREE, so make your way to Hello Dave and don’t forget to wear your Hello Dave group tag.

Christmas Ride Poses Rather than walk in a Winter Wonderland, why not go for a ride? I found this too cute for words bicycle prop from What Next on the Marketplace. This “Christmastime” bike is highly detailed and has 3 static poses for fun festive photos. The bike is an absolute steal at just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sweater Weather!

Sweater WeatherFollowing the brightly colored leaves of fall comes the cold crisp breeze of winter; and my favorite season for fashion, which I like to call Sweater Weather! I know we are still in the midst of fall, and I’m not discounting the season, but I can feel the coming of winter and I can’t help but be excited. That being said, BYRNE recently sent out her November group gift to the BYRNE Style group, and it is this warm and cozy cowl-neck sweater dress. If you are not already a member of the group, the group is FREE to join. Check the past notices and you’ll find this sweater dress, and another group gift just for the guys! The sweater dress comes in two colors, red (shown), and blue, each with standard mesh sizes. I took a close-up of the sweater so you could better see the playful sugar skull pattern that makes this sweater so unique and beautiful. Remember, notices only stay available for 14 days, so don’t hesitate to join the group and score this beautiful gift.

Winter in a Gorean Wonderland

Mays Soul Victoria

I adore Winter, and there are so many ways to experience the season in Second Life. I also very much enjoy all kinds of role play, it’s like Halloween, but lasts longer! Fitting in with my love of Winter and the fun of dressing up, this sort of Gorean style outfit is just the thing. I love the rustic textures and the little details. I think Pru looks like she is probably cold, but too fierce to care! The outfit is from May’s Soul, sans the boots and necklace. The boots and necklace are from Tentacio.
Tentacio Subscribo Gifts
These riding boots are wonderfully well done, as is the necklace. Also, I love the sweet delicate look of the little caged bird in the necklace! Even though I chose to show them with a Gorean type role play outfit, I think they would be just as awesome with a pair of jeans and a pretty sweater, they are so versatile.

Here are the details:

Hair – >TRUTH< Leilani – espresso – Not Free

Skin – Essences ~ Song *noisette – Not Free

’twas the night before Christmas (eve that is)

Uncleweb has put a group gift of hair in their notices! One style for men and the other for women although the male style could work on a girl too. Search Uncleweb in groups, join and check the notices!

Im also wearing the Charlie sweater which was one of the 6 gifts from the subscribo at Mischief that Renee blogged below and the Dollarbie Elf Ears from Buried

 This is Nao wearing the guy hair. I think its pretty cute. He is also wearing the Dollarbie Elf Ears from Buried

An oldie but goodie are these two gowns from Yuli which are both Dollarbies on their discount wall with a few other items. You can buy the gift box on the pedestal nearby to get all the outfits on the wall for 1L or you can pick from the wall and pay 1L per item.

The gorgeous hair worn in both pictures is from the hair hunt at Berenice Mall. Find 12 boxes.. each one has this hairstyle from Biedermans inside but in a different colour. I love the little glittery snowflakes all over the hair!

Still itching for a cute Xmas outfit? Well this is the subscribo gift from Nushru and its adorable. You can find shoes in the subbo too, the gifts are the first two notices so don’t forget to get both.

Then if you still want some more Xmas clothing cheer, get in your sleigh and fly over to Courtisane and give thier subscribo some Holiday love. Check the notices and get these cuties.

Finally go to Heartsick  and take a look at this gorgeous frozen skin that is available in the store for 50L. You get 1 make up in the pack, but you have two skins so you can boost your cleavage or be more modest.

The skin matches the new “Cool Schmool” ears that I bought from Elfpyre perfectly. The ears arent free, but they are so cute with the icicles hanging from them.

SMS (So Many Styles) Quicks my PULSE

Hi there!

I´ll try to keep my next posts short  because I´m pretty busy iRL and iSL. So let´s come right to the point 🙂

***So Many Styles***, New 90, 166, 21 sent out a notice to Fashion Consolidated Group (FashCon), announcing new releases AND a group gift. Well, I got an amazing gift an hour ago: “Baggy Shirt” in gold as well as in silver, both with matching scarves 🙂 If you dare wear it “solo” … if not you have to find a matching bra or any other nice thingy to wear underneath 😉 “Baggy Shirt” comes on several layers, of course. Worn here is the longer version: shirt and jacket layer.

Visit SMS`s store to join the group ***So Many Styles*** for free. You will find a “group inviter sign” on the wall next the entrance. Your gift is called “Glitter Gift”, and it´s the only group notice.

In-store you can get another freebie by touching the “free gift sign” above the group inviter: a cute Baby Doll dress in brown, Blue Swirl Tee and Purple Top 🙂

And if this is not enough stuff for you … keep an eye on So Many Styles blog for news :-))

PULSE Skin, Clothes & Jewelry, Nip Tuck Island 39, 183, 461 has several group gifts still available but I´m not sure how long they will be there. So if you are interested to be gifted with adorable skins join PULSE the group.  One skin worn in the pics is the latest group gift “Pulse Skin1 Caressa Makeup 7” , dated 9/21. It´s a darker skin tone, and I wear the freckled version … what else 🙂 The group gift dated 9/18 contains “Skin1 Tone 4 Makeup 10” in a lighter skin tone. Worn in the pic below is “Skin1 trn2m10” .  Join now, it would be bad to be too late for the amazing skins by PULSE!

The pretty Pulse logo tee as well as the “button shirt blue” are the in-store freebie, just click the sign on the easel. Enjoy 🙂
