Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Enhance My Avatar HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Wednesday, September 3.

We have all new hunts in the top ten this week. The September hunts have started with a bang. Hunters are going wild for them! And you can too… just check out all these hunt themes, then get out there and get your hunt on!

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!

Here They Are! September Hunts!

OpenToday is Labor Day in the United States which means that summer is unofficially over, and “fall” is starting with a bang. Take a look at all these brand new hunts! Renaissance, avatars, horror, 80’s… there is a hunt theme for everyone.

So grab a friend and some snacks. It’s time to go hunting!

Just tap the hunt names for more information on each one. Enjoy!

See you out on the hunt!

Snow in August never looked so good!

Before you yell at me, yes…that is snow in my pictures! I know, in most of our parts of the world, Summer isn’t even over yet, let alone any thoughts of snow. I’m sorry, I can’t help where my outfits inspire me to go for pictures, and you have to admit, my look in this post goes quite well with the white of the snow :P

snowblue1

So, I won’t go into much with my items on this post, as there is a deadline..the hunt for these gifts ends tonight!! Both the dress and skin are from the Fairy Tale Hunt, and you better move fast if you want them. I’ll remind you, the gifts are L$1 each, and for the hints and previews of other gifts, go HERE.

This gorgeous turquoise gown is the huint gift from OMG! Inc. The Grace Me Midnight Gown (love the name!!!) comes in 2 lengths. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is a system layer and rpim skirt gown..yayy! IDK if I like it better long or short, I’ll let you all decide, both looks are beutiful. I may be biased though, as this is one of my favourite colours.

The lovely pale skin I am wearing is the Thindwen skin from Deluxe Body Factory. I love the pale blue brows <3 In the gift, you get the skin, a brow shaper and an eyelash hider alpha (I did not use either of those). I did have to whip out the alternative skin hud for my SLink hands, feel free to IM me in world if you would like the numbers I decided on.

OK lovelies, I hope you have enough time to run and get these gifts. Along with many others on the hunt, sorry I don’t have enough time to show anymore prizes. I will be back with something else that is just as wonderful, so until next time, TTFN!

Blue Couture served up on a Silver Platter!

Hiii everybody!! It is a beautiful day in my neck of the woods, although many around me would say it is too cold. I, personally, love a good chill to the air. I was so excited to have to put on a jacket today. In honour of this glorious day, I wanted to do a post about a dress that I find equally as glorious :)

leaning1

I have already shown you a few of the hunt prizes from The Silver Platter Hunt HERE, with Shamic, so I thought I would show you another one today. This time, the prize is from Blue Couture, and I am doing this one sans-Shamic, because there is only a female gift available. But what a female gift it is! So much so, I purposefully started that last sentence with ‘but’, even though that is a grammar no-no :P Seriously though, the BLUE COUTURE MELODY SET , which includes the gown, matching necklace and earrings, a hip-hugger belt, and a pair of SLink high feet shoes, is so pretty! There is also a cute little clutch purse as well, but I forgot to put it on…d’oh! Check out the back on this dress…so sexy, it shows off my tattoo perfectly! The dress and shoes are rigged mesh, with the dress being available in the standard sizes, and the belt and jewelry are scripted for size adjustment. So, as long as you are willing to do a little hunting, you can get this package for L$1, or, if you just want to get in and get out, find the hunt sign, and you can get the prize for L$25. I love options! The HINT:We love Manga dolls !!

With the gorgeous colouring of this outfit, I needed equally gorgeous nail polish. Now I know many of us FabFree bloggers have shown off quite a few of the beauty by alaskametro SLink mani and pedi huds here already, but so far, no one has shown the turquoise version. So, I thought I would :) For a minimal L$10 on the Marketplace, you too can have nails that match the Melody dress perfectly! I have included the ad picture below so that you can see all the variations on this colour that are in the hud.

*sighs* Alright, I think it time for me to venture back into my RL for now, my dog thinks we need to take advantage of the sunshine and head out to a dog park. Frankly, I agree! So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

Zombies make lovely music to dance to!

If you all can remember, I have ended up in a few spots with zombies, with my first zombie shoot taking place in Dusty Heights (HERE is the link to that post). Would you believe, there is an absolutely gorgeous ballroom, right smack dab in the middle of that place? So of course, when I saw the kinds of gifts Shamic and I were collecting from The Silver Platter Hunt, quite a few formal wear outfits for him and her, well…I thought what better way to initiate Shamic into FabFree blog posts, than to drag him there. We danced to the music of zombie groans and doors being rattled, it was awesome!

ballroom1

Our whole foray into the Silver Platter Hunt, which prompted me to head to a ballroom, started with the lovely Pru sending me a link to the hunt’s blog gift preview page, telling me that there was a nice male skin available at Style by Kira. She was right, of course, and lucky for me, there was a really lovely female skin available for the hunt as well. I am wearing the Style by Kira – Janelle Skin SPH, and Shamic has on the Style by Kira – Anton Skin SPH. Both of these skins will cost you a whole L$1 each. Or, and this is one of the neat features of this hunt, if you do not want to take the time to root out the hunt gifts, all you need to do is find the hunt sign at the store, and the hunt gifts are available there for you without having to search, the catch, these one’s are L$25. So..there are 2 sets of the same gifts, the L$25 ones, are right beside the hunt sign, and the L$1 ones, are hidden somewhere in the store, and will take a little time to find, the choice is up to you. Either way, these skins are well worth the extra time or extra money.

Our formal wear is from Wicked Sin Creations, and they compliment each other so nicely.  I have on the ^WSC^ Opulent *Red/Black* {Mesh} Gown, and Shamic is wearing the ^WSC^ Tuxedo *Red Waist Band* {Mesh}. Both outfits are mesh, with the standard sizes available. Like the skin gifts, you can choose to search for the hunt gift (both male and female gifts are in one object) and only pay L$1, or go to the hunt sign and pay L$25. While there are hints on the hunt’s blog site, the hint for this item is wrong, so I will give you my own hint “Hey Sweet Sugar, Be Mine!”. I just love the matching red colour of my dress and Shamic’s cumberbund, and we look so elegant together :)

The Silver Platter Hunt runs until September 15th, and with a large majority of the stores having either a unisex gift, or both a male and female gift, it’s a great hunt to do together with your honey, or just your male alt…like me :P LOL. I better not let Shamic hear me call him just my male alt, I might hurt his feelings.

OK lovelies, that is it for me, but you all know that I will be back, maybe even show a few other gifts from this hunt. Until then though…TTFN!

Pink .. It Was Love At First Sight

Hooray for another weekend! Todays post is another lesson in pinkology.. Are you ready? Then we shall begin!

Love gave me a great tip about this gorgeous hair by Cheveux. It is free as their 2000 member group gift! It comes with a HUD that allows you to swap the colours of the bows in the hair or make them disappear if you want to have it without. The free group gift is Pink but you can purchase other colours in the store if you want something different! My gorgeous gown is the VIP April Floral Corset Skirt by Junbug and I was surprised to find that it hadn’t been blogged on FabFree yet! Of course I was delighted too as it suited my pink theme perfectly! The Junbug group has a L$200 join fee but there are a couple of other gifts you can pick up too!

If you are looking for some really adorable jewelry then be sure to check out the Sweet Thing gacha machine at The Gacha Mania event. My necklace, earrings and bracelet are all from there and they are so so cute I am sure you will fall in love with them too.

Its a little hard to capture but I am wearing some animated body glitter by DeeTaleZ that you can find as a dollarbie on the counter near where you land. It really is quite adorable and comes with layers for your lips, eyes, cheeks, chest and tummy! Yay for sparkling! My Chevron painted nails are a limited free offer by La Boheme until 24th August so be sure to stop by to pick them up before then! It comes in two sets, one with silver detailing and one with gold!

Shh… Midday Blog Fix ;)

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! I’m totally sneaking online in the middle of my work day to get a little “blog fix”!  I wanted to show you a couple of stunning items at The Fantasy Gacha.  The Junbug machine is 50L per play and there are a few different prizes, all of which are just breathtaking.  My favourites of the bunch I played for were the Azure Nightflower Gown (rare) and the Ink Satin Bow (common) that I am wearing in my post today, although I quite like the vintage style Dayflower Dress too.  I may have to show off that one soon too! lol

Junbug – ing On A Fifty Linden Friday

Snapshot_008Oh!  How I love Friday!!  Friday means Fifty Linden Friday stops for me, first thing in the morning.  Mostly I run from shop to shop down the list while I am multi-tasking putting on my face in the morning getting ready for work or skipping  breakfast or something lol.  FLF is worth one side of my face being un-mascaraed or those 10 AM hungry tummy growls.

This morning I picked up the FLF items at Glam Affair and Junbug and boy am I glad I did!  Junbug has two of their Ophelia Dresses out in Floral and Polka, priced at 50L each.  Above I am wearing Floral, and below the Polka.
Snapshot_001For this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer, Glam Affair has out their Cocktail Girls Duo including the Kallista and Oakley Skins in the Asia skintone.  You get both skins for one price of 50L and there are several eyebrow options included.  What a deal!  Don’t forget the FLF items are only available for one day only!!

The Janice Jewelry Set is a free group gift at Virtual Impressions and looks lovely both with formal and less formal attire.  This set comes with the necklace and matching earrings (which are a little hard to see in my pictures – sorry!).  This group is free to join, and while you are there make sure you grab the freebie box by the stairs too!
