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*

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.

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!

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!

A Pr!tty Back to School Look

School Days 2

It’s that time of year! Fall is creeping ever closer, and classes are staring back up. I really can’t wait for sweater weather! In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I put together a cute look with some casual attire. I don’t know about everyone else, but one of the first things I always did before returning to classes after a summer was get my hair done! Pr!tty has you covered and then some for a new ‘do to start out the new school year. Right now you can pick up four, yes four, different styles as special group gifts. Each Pr!tty hairstyle comes in a fat pack of colors, and the group is free to join. This means the gifts are genuinely free. Do not miss out on them! Next I picked up this super cute sweater and button-down shirt combo at BlahBlahBlah. The shirt is one of the current Lucky Board items at the main location. I also couldn’t resist the excuse to get new shoes. It’s true, there really is no such thing as too many pairs of shoes. I found these adorable ankle boots from DAISY for Free on the Marketplace. They are so cute on, and they come with a few color options! Every new school year requires a new bag or backpack, something to keep up with all the books, and notebooks, pens, and pencils. I personally prefer a messenger style bag, so this messenger bag from HOC Apparel was just the thing. It too has a few color options and is modifiable for adjusting size and fit. Probably my favorite part of this look is the glasses from VG. These geeky chic glasses are a $5 linden gift at the Trend Fashion Fair. They come with a color change and re-size HUD, and they are unisex. So I know you’ve been wondering about the pencils behind my ears, in my mouth, and up my nose… hahaha These cute little props are from Boof and also include a “hair sticks” version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Introducing Shamic Ember, Calle’s newly male av!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce my original SL av to you, the pre-Calle av, when I couldn’t figure out how to remove the torch from my hand at Welcome Island…remember that dang torch? LOL. Anyways,  this is Shamic Ember, and while he did not start off as a he, I wanted to be able to show off some of the great men’s things you can find around the grid, so voila…the magic of SL allowed me to change Shamic’s gender :) Then, all he needed to do was make a few stops, and I think he turned out pretty good. Let me tell you what he got.

comfycouch1

I’m going to start off with the skin. 7 Deadly s{K}ins  is one of those great skin shops that dabbles in both female and male skins, and lately has had many free group join opportunities. Shamic was lucky enough to get into the group during the last free join, and had his pick of quite a few group gifts. The one he is wearing is the August group gift. If any of you male readers out there have gotten yourselves the SLink hands and feet for guys, this skin has those appliers included! This skin is free for group members, but the join fee, as of this post, is L$200. As I said though, there have been an awful lot of free join opportunities lately, so keep your eyes open, you never know, but, with the multitude of back group gifts you can get right now, L$200 is still a great deal.

comfycouch_004

As this is Shamic’s official introduction, he thought he should dress up. Lucky for him, when he joined the MENStuff group, and headed over to the gift lounge, he found the perfect t-shirt…it has a tie! Tie’s totally say dressed up, right? Even if it is just a texture on a t-shirt :P This free group gift is from alpha lab, and is a mesh, materials ready shirt, in all the standard sizes as well as a fit mesh version. Now, it is supposed to be texture change, and did come with a HUD, but it was having script issues, so until I hear back from the creator about it, consider it only available with the white tie pattern. Hey, it is still a great find, working HUD or not. The MENStuff group is only L$50 to join, but there are many group gifts from different designers available, so it is totally worth the fee.

comfycouch2

I could not let him wander around without pants, so lucky for Shamic, Nightmare Designs is currently participating in the Anarchy Hunt and has a great outfit as their L$1 hunt prize. Of the outfit, he is wearing the mesh pants and Doc Marten Boots, but there is also a pair of mesh, hanging suspenders and a mesh tank top. All the mesh pieces come in the standard sizes, and the Doc Martens are materials ready. You are looking for a little Anarchy A symbol, and the hint is ‘Why is there graffiti on my wall?’, oh, and there is also a gift for the ladies as well, so everyone should check it out.

Before we end this post, I wanted to quickly mention the cute couple pose couch we are on in that first picture. I wasn’t going to let Shamic do this first post alone, so I needed a pose for both of us to be in, and while searching the multitude of couples poses on the Marketplace, I found this great one. The couch is from OMFG Poses, and is called Relax. It comes with the poses and is totally modifiable to allow you to adjust until you fit together perfectly. At only L$1, it is a great addition to anyone’s pose collection.

Alrighty, that is it for us. What do you all think of Shamic? I think he is going to be great, I may even let him pose on his own next time! LOL. So, until next time, TTFN from the both of us *waves*

Can you salsa to bagpipes?

Hello again all you lovely FabFree readers :) I thought I would give you a wee bit of a break on the dots for this post. What I am not giving you a break on, is great freebies, as I have some I think you will love :)

salsa1

By now, you should all be familiar with B!ASTA, as I know we have shown many wonderful pieces of clothing from there. Well, Bomboloni Freschi, the owner and creator of B!ASTA, is branching out a little, with a new store called La Gazza Ladra {by B!ASTA}. To celebrate the opening of this new store, she has put out a super cute, mesh dress as a free group gift for B!ASTA group members! This beauty is called The Thieving Maggie, and actually, I really like the mash-up of a Scottish tartan texture mixed with a very Latin style dress. Tartan skirt ruffles…so much fun. I really wanted to get a latin type dance pose going for my picture, but alas, in my ever-growing selection of poses, I did not have one. Oh well, the dress didn’t really need it :) The B!ASTA group has a small L$50 fee to join, but this dress alone is worth the fee I think.

salsa2

The other freebie I have for you today is also a group gift, from Maxi Gossamer. These cute daisy printed bangles come in 2 sets, of 2 sizes, the large, which I have on my left wrist, and the small, which I have on my right. These are texture change, with 4 different textures, I’ve included the display picture for you to see all the choices. How nicely do they go with my dress? I love when things work out like that! The group is free to join, and once you do, just go into the notices and grab your bracelets. This is one group I hold on to for sure, you can never have too much jewelry.

MG - Bangles - Painted Daisies

I hope you all have a good night, and an even better day tomorrow…Hump day! Woot! Friday is within sight :) LOL. Until next time, TTFN!!

It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Dirty Diva HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 19.

We’re into the last weeks of summer and if you’re following all the hunts that are in the planning stages then it seems like Halloween is just around the corner. Time flies when you’re having fun hunting!

The Dirty Diva hunt is still making a strong showing and has pushed its way into the number one spot. Enmeshed Into Fall Hunt has had some problems but is still getting a lot of interest. I guess people REALLY love their mesh, LOL. There are lots of fun hunts in the rest of the pack as well, with many more hunts going on too… about 50 hunts active at the moment.

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!
