Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is having a good week so far! While on the lookout for some fabulous finds, I came across some adorable platform heels from Apple May Designs. Let me just say these shoes are proof that social media is worth while. Had I not joined Facebook, I might have never known about them! Haha Anyway, back to the shoes, these too cute shoes are just $25 lindens just until August 30th, so there isn’t much time left! The shoes are made to wear with Slink High feet, and they come with a color change hud so you can customize the chain, heel, and bow accents. As you can see from the above pictures, I chose to wear them in red, even though the hud included a black option which would have matched just as well, but I wanted them to tie in these gorgeous red lips from Pink Acid. Currently Pink Acid has a gacha machine full of adorable goodies at The Gacha Mania event! At just $50 lindens per play, I knew they had to be mine! Now my outfit is another bargain I just had to share with you, even though it’s a bit more pricey than what I might normally show.

I stumbled across an event (while looking through flickr photos!) called “Nice to Be” where designers offer discounted goods. At Nice to Be is where I picked up this sexy fun outfit. The outfit is by StormCrow Designs and it includes 2 mesh tops, both shown above, matching earrings, a pair of shoes, and the pants all for $100 lindens! I thought it was so cute that I just had to share it with you. Also, I was so excited about my last manicure from Nail Me!, that I had to have another one. This manicure is called Pixie Dust and has a cute silhouetted pixie with a glittering background in several bright shades. For a very limited time, you can pick the manicure/pedicure appliers up for just $50 lindens at the Nail Me! main location.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Some days all I want to do is sit at home in my favorite band shirt and listen to records with my cat. Finn, that’s my cat, even seems to enjoy when I occasionally sing along! Inevitably when the topic of music comes up, people ask “Who’s your favorite artist?” or “What band do you like best?”. Those questions are impossible for me to answer. I don’t have a favorite, I like them all, some more than others obviously, but even that changes with my mood. Certain genres have a special place in my heart because they are the proverbial soundtrack to my angst-riddled teen years. Mostly, music just speaks to me on so many levels. I can’t imagine life without it.

So, when I came across this sweet little t-shirt showing Yoko and John Lennon on the Marketplace, I had to have it! It isn’t mesh, and it doesn’t come with any appliers, but it’s a cute shirt and perfect for a casual outfit. While browsing through the Marketplace, I also came across this sightly off-the-shoulder cardigan. It’s got a kinda grungy feel to it, and hey, the ’90s are my decade, those were my teen years, so heck yes!! I know, grunge is not always the best fashion forward statement, but every now and then I just have to indulge in a little fashion nostalgia. Band shirt, check, funky sweater, check, now my look could not be complete without some printed tights to go under my denim shorts! Once again, the Marketplace held the answer. These super cute tights are by [BE]lieve, and just inexpensive enough that I couldn’t have been happier with them. I’ll admit, I struggled with not wearing combat boots, or even more grunge, yellow work-boots. Anyone else recall when those were popular, even for girls?! hahaha Still, I refrained from the boots and went with these funky cool wedge shoes with little wing accents. Last but not least, I am completely in love with one of the latest manicure/pedicure sets from Nail Me! For a limited time these uber cute and pretty nail appliers called “Faery Wings” are on sale for $50 lindens. They are fun and colorful, and if you’re like me, you’ll wear them with everything! I’m not altogether certain my outfit matches, but what I do know is that I love it! It reminds me of a fun time in my own life. I would have worn this as a teenager, and if I thought for a minute I could pull it off, I might wear it still! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

*Also, just a little tip, HollyHood is having a 50% of sale that ends August 3oth! So if there is a pair of shoes you’ve been wanting, now is the time to get them! Or, if you’re just a shoe addict like I am, it’s a good time to feed the addiction! :D

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 26.

The Splash of Color Hunt started this past week and rocketed right to the number one spot for a while (now at number 2). I did the Fairy Tale Hunt and Anarchy Hunt along with my partner and aside for the usually little glitches (stores out of business and such) I can personally vouch for the fact that these are well-run hunts. I’m sure you can find a hunt to suit your fancy. 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!

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…..

I decided to go for a little boat ride this afternoon, and unfortunately, I seem to be stranded, as I disembarked onto an island, and my bloat floated away (knot tie-er extraordinaire I am not!!). The island I am on has another boat, but it has been here for quite a while, judging by the collection of sand, and has a hole in it! So while I am awaiting rescue, I figure I have lots of time to tell you about my outfit!

shipwrecked1

While I was at BLUE COUTURE earlier, picking up the Silver Platter Hunt gift that I already showed you, I noticed that they also had a SLF&O group gift available! Don’t you love finding another gift when you go only expecting the one :) For  SLF&O group members, wearing their group tag, the super comfy Hanna Blouse and Pants set is yours, free for the taking. Both pieces are mesh, in the standard sizes, and they are just adorable! Perfect for lazing around on the weekend, but still leaving you totally presentable for if you have to run out and be seen by other people. LOL! Sure, I may be stranded on a beach with a boat that has a hole in it and are very unlikely to see anyone else for quite some time, that is not the point. *grins*

shipwrecked2

Another way to feel presentable for the public, at least for many women, and even some men, is to have some makeup on. Lucky for me, before I headed out on my little adventure, I stopped by 7 Deadly s[K]ins to pick up a little giftie that was put out earlier, that is free for everyone! No group needed :) Inside the lovely gift box is a L$150 gift card, as well as another box that contains a sample of makeup, and preview demo’s for their next skin release, Patience. The makeup layer has a really pretty purple eyeshadow, and a nice ‘hint of purple’ lip stain. I just love purple, and I really like how the lipstain part of the makeup is just a kiss of colour really.

shipwrecked3

So, as you can see, I am fully prepared for a rescue….I wonder how long it will take Shamic to notice I have not come back. Hmmm….maybe I should try starting a fire and see if I can create some smoke signals. If you don’t hear from me again anytime soon, send help…LOL. Until next time, hopefully, 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.

SLINK-nails-Turquoise

*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*

Happy Weekend Everyone! I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love the country, though admittedly I’m kinda torn at times. One of the things however that do very much enjoy about country life is the atmosphere. Life is more casual, sometimes it even seems that time it’s self moves at a slower, comfortable pace. The skies seem enormous, and there is a communion with nature that just doesn’t happen in the big city. Considering my conflicting adoration of both country and city life, my wardrobe can sometimes be a mishmash of both worlds. Still, I think I somehow manage to make it work!  I believe this outfit fits into that idea quite well. There’s a little bit of country, with the denim jumper and hair scarf, but I’ve got my city-girl heels on, my makeup is a little bit wild, and my toenails and fingernails are freshly manicured!

Where did I find this stuff you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, just like I’m conflicted about the country versus the city, I’m conflicted about where I like to shop! It seems lately I have an events addiction, and with so many good ones going on, who wouldn’t?! My first stop was The Wild West Fair where I picked up my shoes, my perfect manicure by ZOZ, and this awesome pose by Something New complete with horse and apple! Next I meandered through the N21 event, and while there bagged my hairdo and this adorable necklace. The necklace is by AMAYA and there are several versions with one-word sayings like “Yes” or “Adored”. Mine says “Kiss”, and I think that’s super sweet! My skin is one Love told me about, it’s the current Group Gift at Genesis. I’m so glad she did, it’s just different enough to really be my style! This lovely skin from Genesis has some vampy lipstick and shimmery gold eye-shadow. It also includes appliers for Slink hands and feet as well as Lolas Tango, and Phat/Cute Azz.  Wanting a little extra color in my eye-makeup, I went with something a little different and got this under-eye liner at La Petite Morte! It comes in a fatpack with several different color options, and the basic black. As for my jumper, I found it on the Marketplace!  I sincerely hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL splash of color huntI live in central California, so when mother nature turns up the late summer heat, I crank up the air conditioning and stay indoors. Second Life is always so nice and cool, so my partner and I do a good bit of hunting. Not only do we beat the heat, but we end up with all kinds of cool stuff.

There is lots to do! So many hunts… There are some pretty good hunts going on right now, but a lot of them are going to reach their expiration dates in about a week. Of course we’re going to be seeing a whole new crop of hunts on September 1st.

New to the hunting game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages with tips and tricks. The short version is this: follow the clues, find the hunt object, touch it or buy it (most are free or very nearly free) and then push off to the next stop on the hunt. Not only is hunting a lot of fun, it’s also a great way to find some new nooks and crannies in Second Life that you’ve never visited before.

Ready to get your hunt on? Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Party Girl

Even though it’s not quite Friday, this girl is ready for a party! I want to dance, maybe have a drink or two, and spend time with my fantastic friends, and maybe even meet a few new ones. Is that too much to ask?! Well, either way, I got dressed up for the occasion anyway. I adore this dress from Ashmoot. The dress comes in several bright playful patterns and color combinations, this one just begged me to take it home! The good news is it only costs $69 lindens at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Every dress needs the right pair of shoes. I found these gorgeous bronze heels at the La Metallique Fair. They are from Essenz and are in a gacha for $75 lindens per play. Also at La Metallique Fair I stumbled over this striking bracelet from Alienbear. It is a free gift just for the event, and I really love the uniqueness, it’s a true statement piece! What’s that you say, you see a little sparkle in my cheeks and across my collarbone? No, it’s not the wine, it is however a little body glitter I picked up at La Petite Morte. With such a brightly patterned dress, and a stand-alone bracelet, just a little glitter was all I needed to feel complete!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
