Cyber Bats
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! As you can see by the photos above, I’ve been having some fun with several freebies and cheapies I found recently. I want to say right away that each of them is very time sensitive so if you like them do not wait to pick them up! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the infos!

That Hair!

Each of the two hairstyles shown above are part of the single Finders Keepers/St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. There have been a many other recent posts showing Finders Keepers Hunt items, I’ll list the others below. These super cool hairstyles are from A&Y Cybernetics. You’ll be hunting a little pot of gold. The hunt ends March 24th, so again do not wait! The hint for A&Y’s post of gold is “golden light of the firefly beckons gold.” In the FREE hunt gift at A&Y you’ll get the Lucia hair (left) and the Dext hair (right). The Lucia hair comes with a “no tubes” version. The Dext hair is technically a male hairstyle. It has a set of system layer hair bases and an Omega applier hair base.

P.S. I had a little help from a loyal Fab Free reader finding this hunt prize, so I’ll pay it forward to you. The key word in the hint is “Firefly”. I hope that helps. Happy Hunting!

Dream in Hypercolour

Dream in Hypercolour

I was thinking about those enormous pool floaty things.  You can get them in every shape, size and colour now.  A few years ago, someone gave me an enormous donut I can float around on, presumably in my swimming pool.  I love the idea – a post-80’s haze type of thing in hypercolour with enormous pineapples, donuts and lips floating past you, your bathing suit matching in screaming shades of yellow and pink, palm fronds swaying languidly in the heat of the summer afternoon.  I am fairly certain I could never actually make this moment happen in RL (there are no languid palm fronds ANYWHERE near me…), but my neon dream comes true in SL…

Screaming Suit

Queenz came to the rescue, charging into my fantasy with a two piece bathing suit just begging to be tossed into a pool!  I grabbed it for free by joining the group, and I ran directly to the nearest oasis, barely waiting to try it all on.  I did, however, and found a yellow version, and a pink version whose top is peppered with the very languid palm fronds I had imagined earlier.  I mixed and matched and went kinda late 80’s/early 90’s.  I am well pleased!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

More Shoes!

My inventory is bursting at the seams with shoes, but come on now – you can never have too many!  I think that’s what the people over at Garbaggio were thinking too, because I found 12 group gifts all neatly lined up and begging to be picked up and taken home.  I joined the group for a measly 50L, and now they’re all mine.  I’m wearing the Linda sandals, which I totally love because they’ve got butterflies on the back!  yayyyy!  These shoes are sized for both Maitreya and Slink.

Time for some mirrored shades and a can of something fizzy, with a crazy straw for good measure!

Be Cheeky!

Lucky_001

Be Cheeky!

The Finders Keepers Hunt has turned out to be an amazing hunt with some real gems of gifts that the FabFree bloggers have shown off for all of you amazing readers! I noticed that one of my favorite stores, Vision, was on the list, and stopped by to hunt down their gift to see what it was. Pictured above is the free gift – a white waist pants set with a really cheeky top that tells you to “Go Luck Yourself.”

It made me think of Pru who recently blogged about taking your demon to the beach 😀 I’m always excited to see Pru’s posts because she invariably blogs something unique and cheeky that I think I could never pull off! But I think I managed to pull off this one from Vision! Hunt down the pot of gold, and you can be cheeky too! Just be sure to do it before the end of the day on March 24th, because that’s when the hunt ends!

The pants and top come separately and in several sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Lucky_002

As I mentioned in my post [here] there are various perks to being a member of the Vision VIP group. Your one-time fee of 250L gets you an in-store credit of 100L on the first of every month plus access to four lucky letter boards (they change out each month too).

When I picked up my in-store credit this month, my letter happened to be up on one of the lucky letter boards and I grabbed the Moly top! The top is in this lovely Salmon color, but includes a color change hud for the ruffles around the hem. You could make the ruffle white to match the waist pants. Either way, this top goes lovely with the free Finders Keepers waist pants!

Moly Shirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Al Fresco

Fresco

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m dining “al fresco” today with some free home and garden finds from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I also threw in a few fun group gifts for good measure. 🙂

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the top photo:

  • Roawenwood – Farmhouse Rustic Dining Table & Chairs, Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread
  • Apple Fall – Argentinian Malbec and Wine Glasses (included, not shown: a decanter of whiskey)

Group gifts in the top photo:

  • RaindaleWall Clock, Candlesticks, Tangerine Cake, and the Winter Rug
  • The Little BranchGolden Birch Trees (left side of photo; the tree with the white trunk)

The trees from The Little Branch are really lovely. They’re animated – meaning they gently sway in the virtual breeze – and you can click to change them with the seasons. Also in the folder is a little mesh hill, and the Buffalo Grass shown here (green and winter versions for both are included).

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the lower photo:

Please note that the Twinkly Clover is not a free hunt item. Each vendor in the St. Patrick’s Day Hunt has an item for sale at a reduced price, and the clover is the discounted item from Dysfunctionality. You can find it at the green hunt info booth for just 38L.

About The Hunt

The Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt will continue through 24 March 2018, so you only have 2 more days to grab the items you want.

Click HERE for a list of stores and hints, or join the Finders, Keepers Hunt Events in-world group to grab the hunt HUD, as well as a few extra gifts.

Enjoy!

Peace, Love & Camping

Peace, Love & Camping

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I just have to say that Second Life camping is so much more comfortable than Real Life camping. When I arrived to my site today, it was all set up.  My bed was made, the campfire was lit – even my camera was set out and ready to shoot some wildlife photos.  I swear sometimes camping in Real Life is simply setting up half the weekend and then dismantling it all for the rest of the weekend.  Next time, I think I’ll try my RL luck at The Holiday Inn, so I can log in here and get a comfortable camping fix.

Need a free spirited adventure of your own?

Getting dressed for one, is the first step!  You’ll need to take a trip to HashTag to pick up these Ripped Capri Dungarees (fitted for Maitreya Mesh Bodies) as a free group gift (free group join too!), and then head over to Loordes of London and hunt down a black rose hunt icon for the Glam or Grunge Hunt.  Once you find it – pay 1L and you’ll have the Right To Be Free top and vest combo.  It’s not super easy to see in my photo as my pose is a little hunched over, but the vest is decorated with all kinds of cool wild child things like buttons,etc.  This hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included:

  • 5 Standard Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
