Sunny Monday

Sunny Monday

Heyya FabFree! Today… I was a bit of a detective for y’all.  Stuff gets weird in SL, designers change names, store disappear or appear, people vanish…. I guess it’s all part of the Grid’s power but it can get unnerving when you’re trying to hunt down freebies and bargains. especially when you have a great gift in the inventory… and you don’t quite remember how you got it…..

Anyway, I was checking out the new Gacha Life event (where I grabbed these awesome new sunglasses for Free from the Ari Pari’ booth) when I decided to go wander through Grumble because they always have great Hunts and such. Sure enough, I was hunting and clicking in no time!  I was unpacking the prizes and realized… I have no information on the Peace By Peace Hunt and I’m blogging this awesome skirt Grumble made for it!! So I popped back over to Grumble to do some sleuthing. Luckily, I noticed another resident in the store hunting with the group name “Searching for Peace”. AH HA, sez I, I bet that’s them. And it is! To get the Peace by Peace Hunt info you can just join the free group and the Hunt list is in the Notices. Maybe not the easiest way… but it works.

The group is named “Searching for Peace” and the group key is – 5db92a9d-8188-08d0-45ba-4e2aa8c306fa

So, anyway… my gorgeous watercolors skirt is the “BoHo Dream” and you can grab it for just 1L and a little Hunting!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Classic
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

While I was at Grumble ( Since I spent a lot of time there this afternoon) I also stumbled across a Hunt and event that’s new to me. The Fashion Loft is another SL hot spot for all things fashion on the Grid. They are hosting a Grid wide Hunt that runs until June 30th. All you have to do is pop over to their headquarters and grab the free HUD which will take you through the Hunt. So for my sunny Monday , it’s the “Damn Cute” bikini I’m sporting with my new skirt. Yes, it’s “Damn Cute”… says so on the box it comes in. You get the itsy bitsy bikini ( Top and Bottom) and a HUD for  10 super cute patterns.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

You and I

You and I

Some nights you just end up on the kitchen floor talking for hours.  Sometimes I end up on the kitchen floor wrestling with a Christmas tree and some super glue, but that’s a story for another day.   This is an evening for long chats, candlelight and the possibility of a slice of cake after.  Aren’t those the best kinds of nights?

That’s the Ydea

In my meanderings, I wandered into Ydea Style and much to my delight found a rather extensive wall of Lucky Boards.  The group is free to join, and the wall is crammed with free finds for both male and female avatars.  My cute little overalls and top, as well as Oov’s layered shirts come from there, and all that was required was a bit of patience!  I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you there too.

Female Outfit Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Male Outfit Sizes

  • Fitmesh
  • L – S and an Alpha Layer

Candelit

Apple Fall also has a new group gift – and it’s a set of jarred candles.  There are four different scents (that I wish I could actually smell…but hey such is Second Life!) and they come in both an open and shut version.  You can give the wick a little click to light the candle and it emits a very romantic glow.  The Apple Fall group is free to join, making these babies entirely free.

Set it Down

Of course, you’ll need a cute table to put these candles on, and Ishiku have got just the thing you need.  Their latest group gift is a set of side tables in several different textures (I went for worn marble) and different heights so you can make an artfully arranged display.  The Ishiku group is free to join, and you’ll find a bunch of other really awesome group gifts on the wall there too.

Now if you’ll excuse us, this party is just for two!

The Bikini comes with a fish net ‘cover-up’ but… it don’t cover much! 😉

Hunting Butterflies

Hunting Butterflies

Hello hello, my FabFree Darlin’s! I know I’ve been lost out in the real world for the last few weeks and only now found my way back to the Grid. But I have a good reason. My BFF was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in her lung back in March and was finally able to have it removed the first week of May. I had to be there to get in the way and sneak real food into her hospital room and fetch whatever she needed. She’s my person, ya know.  But now I can say she is cancer free! 

Anyway… now I’m in a wonderful mood! Like skipping through the meadows dancing with the butterflies mood! So what do I do? I go on a Butterfly Hunt, of course. I found my cute little tank top over at The Bold Llama for just one linden and a little hunting. As always the tank is a beautiful design and build and there are lots of hunts and Group Gifts available , so take a look around while you’re there.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

My boots are also one of the prizes for the Butterfly Hunt and you can find them at The Sissy Bar. I am so in love with these boots! I can’t wait to show them off on my travels. It’s always great when a designer comes out with something really unique and different and these hit to spot! Again they are just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

So… grab your loved ones in a big hug and thank the heavens they are healthy and tell Cancer it can just… you know what… itself.

Let the Sunshine in

Shanti 75L Maxi Dress

Hey gang!

Big announcement here!  Some of you may already know some of this but… I have a shop called Shanti.  What you might not know is that I have been so inspired by the whole FabFree experience that I recently changed my shop so that everything is 75L or less!  Yep, even brand spanking new stuff!  Older stuff, BOM/classic things, those are 49L and less.  Woot!  This is not something that will end, this is a permanent thing.  And yes there are lots of freebies to be had!

Today I’m wearing a Shanti Maxi Dress, this is only 75L, is gorgeous for the spring and summer and fits:

  • Classic (Fitmesh)
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Shanti is very bohemian inspired (cause I loveeee the bohemian stuff, being the boho princess that I am!), which is hard to find sometimes in world. (I wish there was more!!)

I’m also wearing hair from Lamb, this is one of their awesome free group gifts, and yes, that group is free to join!

Enjoy!  I’ve got some new market finds for you next time gang!  Yay!  (and yes this is the one and only time I will be tooting my own horn.  Toot toot!!)

The Sporty Illusion

The Sporty Illusion

Take me out to the….game of some form of athletic exploits…take me out to the….socially distanced and masked croooooowd, buy me some hypoallergenic peanuts and crackerjacks (if they still make those), I don’t care if…. Wait, what was I talking about?  Oh yeah! Time to pretend that I’m in to sports or something!

Cuckoo for COCO

There’s a new group gift at COCO!  This red sporty tee is pretty great because it has the detail of being twisted and draped at the back for a bit of showing off of one’s back!  I always love a twist on a classic, and this totally falls into that category.  The COCO group is free to join, and there are lots of awesome gifts to add to your inventory there.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Sn@tch is Back!

Yep, you heard that right!  After a very trying 2020 and start to 2021, Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch is back inworld creating.  We wish her all the best with all the hardships she’s gone through (you can read her message about what went down with her in RL by clicking on the subscriber unit in her store).  As is her wont, she has first thought of her many fans and graciously updated the Lucky boards (and riot boards) at her store.  I was ever so patient and managed to get this long, and piled high hairstyle for free (no group join required) as well as the socks I’ve got on  (they come with an omega applier as well as system layers).   There are way more new things on the boards there, so well worth checking out!  We’re happy you’re back Sn@tch!

Go team go (or whatever)!
