Snapshot_001TGIF Fabulouses! I hope your Friday is filled with sunshine and bubblegum too ;)  I’m in a bit of a rush today so I’m going to be sweet and short!

The pieces of my outfit today can mostly be found at FabFree Headquarters either as free gifts or gacha purchases!  The Meow Confort Capri Jeans can be found in the Tutti Frutti Gacha machine that is located over by the outdoor café for just 30L per play.  As you can see from the vendor photo below there are five fun prints plus three more rare prints to play for.

I have matched up my new capris with the adorable Cropped hoodie, which you can wear with or without the hood and the LaNoir Soleil Designs Elly Necklace which are both available as FREE gifts in the gift gallery at the newly renovated FabFree Headquarters!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Bunny BluesEggs, eggs, and more eggs!  It seems like half the stores in Second Life are having an Easter egg hunt. Okay, maybe not HALF, but a lot of them. We’ve been adding a couple of new Easter egg hunts to the list every day for the past week. Sooooo… if you love Easter, then you’re going to love this edition of Your Friday Hunt Report.

If you haven’t gone on a hunt yet, check out the marvelous guides at FabFree and HUNT SL. It’s easy to get going and you’ll find lots of free and very low cost goodies just by following some clues and running around like a crazy person. Ha! It’s all good fun, and you don’t REALLY have to run. You can walk sedately.

Here are the notable hunts around the grid today, April 18th, 2014. Just tap the hunt names for more information on each.

See you out on the hunt!

RPH5 - #23

Here’s another men’s gift from the Runway Perfect Hunt #5.  Second Life is for letting us do things we never could in RL, so for those of us who never made a varsity team in any sport now we can at least look like we did.

This outfit is the RPH5 male gift from CHG Fashion.  It includes a tee (jacket layer) plus rigged mesh jeans with belt, hat, jacket (in both open and zipped looks), and sneakers  – a complete outfit for only $5L.  In case you’re wondering about the purple and gold colors, the jacket and hat are the team colors for a U.S. professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, with the team logos and name carefully changed.  But despite the basketball symbolism, I’m showing it to you as a varsity football player (that’s the U.S. version of “football”) because I like the poses.

If you ladies want to color-coordinate with the varsity guy in your life, CHG has a female gift in the RPH5 too.  You’ll find the same outfit in the women’s prize along with a color coordinated mini-dress cheerleader outfit.  And, no, I’m not going to model the mini-dress for you.

Hunting eggs in Sascha’s Designs, NSP Florals and Amacci Hair!

Have I mentioned that Easter is one of my favorites Holidays?  It is a Holiday that celebrates rebirth…flowers popping up…color coming back after a long grey winter.  I love all the wonderful colors that herald Easter activities…but my all time favorite color is PINK!  When I saw that the gorgeous pink Aliana gown, from Sascha’s Designs, was up for grabs as part of the Zuri’s Jewel Isle 2014 Easter Egg Hunt…I HAD to have it!  All you need to do is find the little egg and pay only 5L…and this fabulous dress is yours…just in time for all those wonderful Easter celebrations!
B!asta_0071

While I was looking for the Sascha’s Designs gown, I also found this fabulous Easter in Bloom Hat from NSP Florals…find the egg and pay only 1L!  I also found the egg at *Amacci* and, this time, I was rewarded with the Rosie Hair (Wheat Blond)…completely FREE…just right click the egg and it is 0L!  There are several more stores participating in the Zuri’s Jewel Isle 2014 Easter Egg Hunt and the eggs have varying prices, set by the individual designers participating.  Hurry because this hunt will end on April 21st!!

Happy hunting and stay Fabulously Free!

Getting My “Throne” On!

Snapshot_010Good evening Fabulouses! It must be a “roleplayey” kind of week for me this week!  It’s not often I go medieval, but that’s two times in three days for me ;)

Residents of Second Life have not escaped the Game of Thrones craze (not that they would want to – it’s awesome!) lol, and I am no exception…  I have watched each episode, sometimes twice so I can make sure I understand what the heck is going on.  There are so many storylines packed into one show I have a hard time keeping them all straight!  I can hardly believe what happened this week :O !  Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t watched it yet, but wow… just wow!  It’s about time.  I haven’t read the books… but I am curious just how closely the story lines match.  Have you read the books and are watching the TV series? Leave a comment!!  I’m curious :)

If you are a fan of G.O.T., make sure you check out the latest round of The Secret Affair, as it is all Game of Thrones themed and is filled with clothing and accessory pieces to help you dress up like your favourite characters.  Tonight, I played the the Junbug gacha machine at The Secret Affair Event and got the Gown of Thrones in Royal Red (rare!) that I was after with just two plays of 50L.
Snapshot_011
The Lady Melisandre Double Collar is designed by Pure Poison and can be found in a gacha machine at our very own brand new FabFree Headquarters.  As you can see from the vendor photo below, there are all kinds of gorgeous Lady Melisandre pieces you can snag for just 50L per play.

Pure Poison - Lady Melisandre - Jewelry Set - GACHA

Hey, did you know there are several Game of Thrones sims to visit after you have yourself all “throned up”?  I explored Highgarden tonight and it was a lot of fun.  Have a great day!!  Hmm who do you think did it? :D

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts!

YAY! The brand new Fabfree HQ is open, and it looks amazing! XiuLan really did a fantastic job of decorating! In addition to the gorgeous new building, which Love showed off this morning [HERE], there are also gatchas to be played, and all new gifties up on the walls! Xiu showed off a ton of the gifts that the HQ has to offer [HERE], and I’m here to show off a few more that are a couple of my favourites!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_001

Firstly, the Thrilling mesh jacket from Mary Cakes is just fantabulous. I love the studded details, and the deep red colour, and it pairs really well with…

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_002

The Mona leather tank and Vela jean capris from none other than Sn@tch! The splatter on these pants is really great, and the whole outfit would be perfect for anyone looking for something a little more “urban”. Both this outfit, and the jacket above, can be found for FREE at the brand new Fabfree HQ!

kosh nails hud

My nails, which I forgot to snap a shot of, are on sale for $L10 right now from Kosh, in their marketplace shop. The listing says you can grab them free if you’re an inworld group member, but the group does cost $L22 to join. To me they’re definitely worth it either way, since you get all of the designs above in fingernails AND toenails!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_003

The skin I’m wearing here is one of Wow Skins‘ easter egg hunt prizes, and it was previously shown by Love [HERE]! The prizes are not free, in fact this one is the “golden egg” prize and actually costs $L50, however, in the “golden egg” pack you get 2 skins, freckles, teeth, a shape, and appliers for everything, so it’s actually a really fantastic deal!

Today I’m going to be showing you the fabulously FREE items from four of our FabFree Designer’s gift vendors at FabFree Headquarters.  The first FREE gift is from Banger Island Creations …it is a chic Sepia Days Belted Top & Leggings.  This mesh outfit comes with a HUD that gives you three different sepia color options for the top as well as for the leggings; so you can mix or match the two.
FabFree Headquarters FREE Gifts!
I’ve accessorized the tunic and leggings with our next FREE gift, CC Stingy Brim Fedora (Signature Gold), from Couture Chapeau.  I LOVE fedoras and when I saw this on, I knew I had to use it…it is unisex (scripted resizer) and the texturing is fantastic!

My shoes are the third FREE gift, Ultimate Damara White Wedges, from Baby Monkey.  These shoes are truly fabulous…they come with a HUD to match the skin and tons of nail polish options as well as options for the toe rings!

The Vintage Camera used in this shot is NOT free but is available for sale from !!Follow Us!! on the Marketplace.

The final FREE item I am showing today is the super comfy Brown Leather Accent Chair from Park Place Home Decor.  This chair has great animations and gives props…such as the cool cell phone I am holding in the photo.  The textures on this chair and ottoman are phenominal and the design fits into many eclectic home decor designs.

The Plant in the photo is available from ++LP2++ for 50L.

ALL the FREE items shown today are available at the New FabFree Headquarters…grab the next taxi and come visit!  We’ve had our makeover…now come get yours!
