A Little More Eloquence

Hello FabFree readers! I hope you are having a great week so far and have been enjoying reading the blog! As you may remember, earlier I spoke a little about the Grand Opening event for Eloquence  which is a newevent blog that has started. To celebrate they have a whole area that is filled with with lots of great free group gifts from great designers for everyone to enjoy. Here are some more of the great gifts you can find there!

There is an adorable dress by Tutti Frutti that is the most brilliant shade of blue I have ever seen in my life!  The contrasting green stitching makes it really interesting. I wanted to play up the cuteness of this dress so I paired it with the Dethburn Kicks by Razor. These come with a colour change HUD which allows alot of options where you can change each shoe individually, aswell as the upper and sole part. To continue with the cute theme, and because I like to add a little bit of colour clash to my outfits, I added the puffy crown hair accessory by Ariskea!

Also available as gifts at the event is this really pretty skin by Style By Kira. I love the lips on this skin! They are so well defined and the little bubble nose is just adorable. The little Sakura bindi worn is also a freebie there by AMAYA!

Finally there are two really gorgeous nails for SLink hands by Figure available as free gifts at the event. Below are the HUD’s so you can see the different options available.

How Do You Melt A Locked Heart

Hello again everyone! I am going to show you some more from The Bling Hunt again today. I hope you will enjoy these finds today and will go and hunt them out for yourselves!

First I would like to show you the Vale’s Turtleneck Dress by Cynful. There is nothing quite like a snuggly polo neck dress, particularly now Autumn has finally started to make itself known. The warm days are finally coming to an end and so this is perfect to wear on those wandering days outside. There are several different appliers that come with it including Phat Azz, Tango, AMD Baby Bump and SLink hands for those who want to wear their sleeves longer!

Untitled

Here you can see a better view of the Lip Shine Basics in the Cherry colour by Pink Acid. This lipstick comes in a pack of four colours as their prize for The Bling Hunt. Also you can see in much better detail, the Melty Heart.Lock Necklace by Epic (which also comes with a matching backpack) and the fun Golden Lolly Ring by MoDANNA which are both prizes in The Bling Hunt aswell.

Untitled

How awesome is my hair? It is a preview of a new style called Oni by Runaway that will be available at The Mystic Realms Faire which starts on 10th October! I love how the horns are made out of the hair itself. I don’t have the SLURL to give out to the Faire yet as it isnt open to the public, but if you click on the link above, you can visit their site which has a shopping guide so you can drool over all the things you can find there!

The Crossed Nails by Figure that come in a range of colours and for both SLink hands and feet. Below you can see the other colours available.

Finally, if you are looking for an amazing pair of shoes, then look no further than the new Second Life Free and Offers group gift of the Lona Shoes for SLink High Feet by Like Design. These have an amazing corset detailing on the heel and sole of the shoe that make them really unique!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Spooktacular October HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, October 7.

There are lots of Halloween hunts in the top 10 this week. Are you surprised? I’m not! We, the people of Second Life, love our Halloween hijinks! From scary to kinky… I’m sure you can find one to enjoy.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

The Bling Ring

Hello again FabFree Readers! I hope you have been enjoying October so far and that you are having fun finding all the new hunts, group gifts and freebies that come with a new month! Today I am going to be showing you some of the things you can find on The Bling Hunt! If you love a bit of sparkle in your life then this is definately the hunt for you! All prizes cost L$1 to purchase and you are looking for a little golden crown .. after all, every Queen of Bling needs her crown.

Every girl needs a glitzy dress at some point in her life, even if its just for one special night. The Celebrity Dress is the Bling Hunt prize at Sassy and fits the bill perfectly. You’ll obviously need matching shoes with that and the Bling Sandals for SLink High Feet by Heathenesque were practically made to be worn with this dress.

Untitled

No glamourous look is complete without some gorgeous lips and The Bling Hunt prize at WoW Skins will add the perfect finishing touch to any skin. The Galaxy Bling lip tattooes come in a pack of colours but my favourite was the Mars shade that I am wearing here. There have been some big changes over at Tableau Vivant over the last week and to celebrate they have set out a free group gift of a full fatpack of hair HUD’s for this divine sleek hair style! The group is currently free to join!

Untitled

No matter how dressed up I am, I always like to add a little bit of cute too. My adorable ring is a new promotional dollarbie from Sweet Thing! This is going to be available for two weeks before the flavour will never be available again. To get your hands on this sweet treat, simply go to the Sweet Thing Facebook page, like the page and scroll down to the post that shows the ring. Then click on the SLURL shown in the post. I was going to post the SLURL here, but I didnt know if it was a secret SLURL which is unfair to print so be sure to go to their page and like them!

I hope you enjoyed these! Stay tuned as I will be bringing you some blinging finds soon!

Falling In Love With Autumn

Im having a lazy Autumn day in the sun, taking a little snooze with the gorgeous falling leaves around me and the cooling breeze. Its still quite warm here for October and some of the trees are a little confused at whether they should be turning into golds and russets yet! But slowly the seasons are changing..

I have several great freebies to show you today! First is the cosy Tokyo Sweater by Eaters Coma is their group gift for the Creation.jp event. To get it, you will need to join the Creation.jp group for free and then click the poster on Eaters Coma booth nearby while wearing the group tag. Im not sure when the event ends as I couldn’t find an end date though I spent a while searching for that info! So be sure to run over to get it while you can.

Untitled

My hair is the new free group gift by Moon and comes in a huge fatpack of colour HUDS for you to enjoy! There are so many colours included, you are bound to find something that suits you. The group is also free to join and there are other gifts there you can pick up also that can be found nearby so don’t forget those too! The hairbase I am wearing isnt included with the hair, but can be found in the fatpack of colours available at Spellbound on the counter for free. These are made to match the hairs from this store, but there is a white hairbase in the monochrome pack that I use to match other hair that need a base! Hooray!

Untitled

Pumec is a reasonably new store name to me that I found one day while exploring new stores I found from other events. They have several free gifts available that have already been shown before by Love here and Calleja here. Today I am showing you their new free group gift available called Alina! It is such a cute skin and comes complete with a whole wealth of appliers on a special HUD, including SLink! My eyes are the group gift Opal Eyes in beautiful autumnal colour called Seashell by Poetic Colors. You need to be a member of their subscription group to claim the eyes as when you click the gift it will check, but it will also offer a chance to join it if it doesn’t find your name in the database.

Untitled

The nails I am wearing are a special Halloween gift from Alaskametro. There is a special way to get these nails so be sure to follow the instructions! First you will need to go to their Facebook page and like their page. You then go to the Special Promotions tab at the top of their page.. inside there will be a special code. Then go to the Alaskametro store in world and locate the redemption sign underneath the “Featured Items and Promotions” sign and stand next to it. Type /33 and then the code you got from Facebook in main chat and press enter and you will be sent the gift! Just to clarify you need to type /33 YOURCODE in main chat, replacing YOURCODE with the code you got from Facebook! Make sure it is in all capital letters as lower case won’t work!

Alaskametro Gift / Facebook Promo

These are all the great nail options available in the HUD. There are both manicure and pedicure HUDS in there for SLink hands and feet as well as Omega appliers!

Like just about everyone in Second Life I love Halloween, and I’ve got a whole month of Halloween hunts to tell you about. A bunch of these started up on Wednesday, October 1st, and new ones are revving up nearly every day. In past years I’ve gotten some incredible Halloween costumes just by hunting and I’m looking forward to getting out on the hunt this year too.

If you’re new to hunting, FabFree and HUNT SL have pages to help get you started. You might want to check them out even if you’re a veteran hunter. There are some good strategies and tips to be had.

Let’s get ghoulish! Just tap the hunt names for the skinny on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Snatch @ The Wash Cart Sale

I have always thought that it is such a great thing that FabFree’s home sim of The Wash holds great discounted events throughout the year and that we get to support all the generous designers that take part in it. As you have seen over the last week or so, we have covered The Wash Cart Sale extensively to show you what there is on offer and I hope you have enjoyed reading the posts. The event is on until the 8th October so you still have a few more days to come down and check it out!

Today I am going to be showing you the Snatch cart. I have always been a huge fan of this store and remember shopping there when I first arrived in SL so many years ago now. It has been exciting to see the store grow and develop into making mesh clothing and I am always thrilled to see what they decide to offer at the event!
