We’ll Miss You July Hunts!

How did July flash by so quickly? It’s all just a blur of barbecues, pool parties, and outdoor fun. Sadly, the end of July also means the end of a bunch of fun hunts. Here’s a list of hunts that are wrapping up their runs on Thursday, July 31st.

The good news… you still have time! Bust a move and get out there. You can still score some hunt gifts if you’re quick about it!

More good news… I’ll have a whole bunch of new hunts for you to explore when I bring you Your Friday Hunt Report this week. A big shiny bunch of August hunts are all set to kick off. Yay!

Poke the names here for more info. You know you want to!

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their hunting!

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.

See you out on the hunt!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – July “O’Canada”

I have to admit, it took me quite awhile to come up with my submission for the Monthly Photo Challenge, especially as I had already done a post to celebrate Canada Day at the beginning of the month, wearing my country’s colours. Oh sure, I could have submitted one of those pictures, but I wanted to do some pictures specifically for the challenge. So here it is.

PhotoChallengeJuly1

So, this oh-so-sexy halter dress was a find on the Marketplace! I typed in ‘red white dress’, LOL, and this was one of the many items that popped up. The Furry Circle Halter Dress is from LA VITA, and is a great buy at only L$1. It is mesh, coming in 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, and it fits like a dream. There is an in-world store HERE if you like the more hands on approach of shopping, and the Halter Dress is still, only L$1 there as well.

PhotoChallengeJuly2

Sunglasses were a must, in this sunny coastal setting,  and the [ bubble ] Star Me Up White Glasses fit the bill perfectly. These adorable sunglasses are available right now, in a gacha at the Candy Shop event, and are only L$50 a play. Each pair comes with a HUD that allows you change the colour of the lenses, and there is a chance at winning the full fatpack. I’ve included a photo of the board so you can see all the colours you have a chance at winning.

Heart Glasses Gacha AD

PhotoChallengeJuly3

Elephante poses recently released a second July group gift, free for their VIP group members, which is a set of 6 static poses called Ember. There is a L$300 join fee for this group, but if you are a pose junky, like I am, then it is more than worth it As I said, this is the second July group gift released, and the first is still available as well, and you also get a 15% credit with every purchase made in store with your group tag on. If you do not have the group space, don’t fret, there is a subscribo available, which also has a little giftie available for July.  So either way, you win!

OK lovelies, that is it for me, for now…but I have more I want to show you, so, until then, TTFN!!

This hunt is a bit different from what we normally show off and is more geared towards the furry residents in SL! almost all of the gifts in this FREE hunt are compatible with humans and furries alike. So, shall we go on a quest?!

Shop #6, Murder of ravens, has a really interesting “Blue enderbeast” full avatar as their hunt gift. You’ll have to check this one out on your own, but believe me, it’s definitely worth the time to grab! #7, Cubic cherry kre-ations, has a really neat black tail as their gift! The little fin and water drop pattern add great detail to this.

Sleeping Beauty

So I’ve been on a bit of a lingerie kick lately, and I am perfectly happy with that! There is a saying that goes something along the lines of  ” if you take the time to dress pretty, you’ll feel pretty. ” and I do believe that. I also think it applies to your under-garments. If you take the time to wear something pretty under your clothes, you’ll feel pretty.

One of the current gifts at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room is this very pretty purple lace bra and pantie set. The delicate lace pattern is semi-sheer and can be worn with or without Slink Physique, Cute Azz, Phat Azz, and Lolas Tango appliers. Pru is wearing it with the Slink Physique. In addition to my adventures in lingerie, I wandered through the current installation of Kustom 9 and my love for skins and gachas was slaked! Essences has a gacha machine at Kustom 9 with several pretty skins in various tones. I got lucky and snagged this pretty pale skin with smoky purple eye-shadow. Last but not least, I also picked up a set of pretty eyes from {SONG}. I wanted to buy up every single pair, but I limited myself to one. It was quite difficult. :P In the end I was pleased as punch with my ensemble, I hope you like it also.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

FabFree HQ encourages lounging…Let me show you how!

Hello Fabbies! How is your week going? Are you all as happy as I am that we are passing the midweek mark? I thought, as I was just lounging around my skybox,  I would show you all a few of the free gifts that some of our generous FabFree Designers currently have available down at the FabFree Headquarters.

SeldomBlue1

First up of the FabFree gifts, Seldom Blue has put out the beautiful Lottie Lingerie in a lovely pinkish shade of red, and black. You can wear this set with or without the waist cincher and garters, as well as the stockings. For all you meshy-bits lovers, there are a few appliers supplied with this, a combined Tangos and Phat Azz applier, a SLink feet applier, and 3 layer HUDs for the SLink Physique body, so almost everyone should be very happy :)

SeldomBlue2

I personally believe that lingerie and jewels go together perfectly, so I was pretty happy to see that the current gift at FFHQ being offered by DDM Designs, was a gorgeous pair of sweetheart earrings, which just so happened to have a pinkish-red stone in the hearts. Talk about happy coincidence!

SeldomBlue4

Now, when lounging around in your lingerie, you cannot lounge in an empty room. So I took advantage of 2 more free gifts being offered at FFHQ. The first being from StoraxTree, the aptly named Cathedral Chest, has a definite gothic church feeling to it. Just above it is my second choice, the spirograph memo board from Wise Walls, which is a nice contrast in style to the chest. It is actually one of 2 wall decorations you receive in this gift, the other being a pretty heart memo board, which also would have worked nicely in my pictures, not to mention complimenting my heart earrings!

SeldomBlue3

Are you eyeing up the skin I am wearing? Don’t worry, stare all you like, I did when I first saw the gacha for it. Located just outside FabFree HQs, is a new gacha from Flounce. Many of you older skin lovers may remember Mimi Coral’s previous store, Cupcakes, Flounce is her newest creation, and yet again, she is satisfying our skin cravings, and at only L$25 a play for this gacha, it satisfies our love of a great deal as well. There are 5 different tones available, each tone having 2 different makeups, and none of the makeups are alike, so you have 10 different skins to play for, and all of them are so pretty. I have included a picture of the gacha ad for all of you to see, I am wearing #7, Anna – Latte – Nebula. The skins come with several different tattoo layers for beauty marks, freckles, blush and cheek highlighting, which you can put together to make your face your own.

SeldomBlue5

OK, my evening is winding down, and I think all this lounging has made me ready for bed :P Remember, do not let anyone tell you that it is weird to hang out in your undies and high heels, alone…well, almost alone if you don’t include Simon, who is already sleeping in the background. Until next time, TTFN!! *waves*
