He Shoots, He Scores!

72715bball5b_001

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week, I decided to get more exercise, change some of my poor eating habits, and end up with a healthier version of me! Yeah…had you going there a minute, didn’t I? LOL! Seriously, my favorite find this week is a very good looking basketball uniform emblazoned with the words “New York” across the front. The hunt prize from the Boom Boom Pow Hunt, The Mensline Mesh Basketball Outfit from KAD Designs is great athletic wear even, if you aren’t a basketball fan. The jersey alone would fit well in an urban street wear outfit, but KAD Designs gives you much more than that! The hunt prize includes the entire uniform right down to the sneakers and socks. In you have no need of active wear, consider this: The outfit has some seriously fun role play potential in the right situations. The Boom Boom Pow hunt ends on the 31st of July, and this gift will set you back 1L. Hurry and grab it, it is a very nice gift.

72815Basketball Blk1

Staying with the basketball theme, earlier today I saw that IAF had set out a goodie bag for us guys with multiple freebies in it. Among the four items in the bag is this basketball jersey with the number “01” on it and with the name “Hustle” on the back. This happens to be perfect for me since “Hustle” happens to be my nickname around the office. (I sold Love’s stapler to Pru, then wrapped up Pru’s stapler as a gift to Love. I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky kids!) The Jersey is black with silverish gray numbers and accents and would look as great out on the street as it would on a basketball court. One last note, in this very generous FREE gift bag IAF also included some chinos, a sweater, and a wool jacket/shirt combo!

Lastly, my hair is a great FREE group gift from Amacci! Truly one of the best places for men’s hair on the grid, I was very pleased to hear they had put a male hair out recently and hurried over. The current FREE group gift is called “Leon” and comes in cinnamon. It is a nice length for guy hair; I call it medium length in my inventory and is a must pick up, since free hair for guys is such a tough find. I don’t know how long this will be out. So, like most of the end of the month items, it is best to run and grab it before it vanishes like the playoff dreams of a basketball team from a certain city that I will not specify.

That’s what I have for you this week. Whether you want to look good hanging out on the corner talking smack to your friends, playing a quick pick up game of basketball, or have an interesting idea for a role play in mind, these items should come in quite handy. Until next week my friends, take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.

No Passport Needed

Hello again, FabFree Dear ones! I don’t know about y’all but I need a vacation! Taking eighty or so days to trapse around shopping at fabulous stores and collecting great prizes sounds like just the thing.

No Passport Needed

My first stop on the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt was at Nerdy Girl. I am absolutely in love with this dress! I spent a large part of my collage age years in Oklahoma and route 66 runs right through there. I have very fond memories of cruising the ‘mother road’ through the back country and stopping at funky little diners and dives along the way. The ‘Vintage Summer Road trip ‘ dress would have been the perfect get up to cruise around in! It comes in all the standard sizes and the little bow at the waist is optional.

I had to have hair that would ‘flow’ in the breeze as I drive so I stopped at Kokolores’ shop at the Hair Fair and picked up their free gift – Ash . It comes in a very nice variety of colors and is unisex. I’m thinking it would look tres smexy on some of you guys out there who rock the longer hair.

As my real life BH  ( That’s Beloved Husband ) will tell you: I never travel light. Poor guy is pulling out his hair trying to pack everything for our move as it is.  Annnyway, Park Place Home Decore has set out the sleek three piece luggage group for us as part of the Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt. It comes loaded with 22 poses for guys and gals. It’s just the thing to pack up your souvenirs from the trip!

The Hair Fair only lasts until July 26! That’s just a few more days, so if you need hair ( and who doesn’t??) go support the Wigs for Kids charity and grab some marvelous free gifts.

The Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt runs all the way till September 30th!

HUNT SL picnic-day-hat-hunt-posterGood Morning Fabulous Fans! There are lots of great hunts going on right now, but if you like picnics (and who doesn’t) and you like hats (and who doesn’t) then you should check out the Picnic Day Hat Hunt which just started today.

Another hot hunt right now is Around The Grid In 80 Days Hunt 3. This is a big hunt with 129 stops, but yes, it really does last for 80 days so we have plenty of time to get it done. I have it right near the top of my list of “hunts to do.”

Still unclear on the whole hunting thing? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get in on the action. Pay them a visit and you’ll be good to go! Then poke all the hunt names below for more info on each one.

Kindred Spirits

Hello my FabFree Dears! I hope no one minds that I’m doing two ‘Fairy’ themed posts in a row. I couldn’t resist when I saw that BlueMoon Enterprises had put out this great new Group Gift: The Summer Fae.

bluemoon_002

I’m sure our readers who are more role play inclined are familiar with BlueMoon, the shop is full of beautiful RPG / fantasy/ medieval clothes and items. But even if you aren’t “one of us”, you can still appreciate this gorgeous dress. You get the lovely underdress, I’m showing, plus the gossamer wings and a lovely lace-like over dress. I’m also wearing the “Baby’s Breath Wreath w/ Butterflies” from Tamiron Forge and it’s a prize in the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt going on till July 19th. The Medieval Fantasy Faire has a ton of great designers and a gacha garden as well. I was unable to find a web site for them ( other than what I’ve posted here) or a list of the Mini Hunt participants. If any of y’all out there have that info I’d be thrilled to get it.

Another prize in the Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt is the ‘Celtic’ necklace from Acios.  The simple elegant design is compliments by the huge HUD wil four metal choices and the twelve stone color choices. I love it when one piece can go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

Update – This is the Hunt Object for the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt. Hope this helps out a little.

Silver Fey

Hello again FabFree folks! It’s official… I am totally addicted to Gachas. Sad, but true. SO when I saw a ‘new to me’ gacha event I grabbed my Lindens and hurried over.

gacha_001

The “Oh My Gacha” event is full of all kinds of tempting machines to play but I fell in love with these Dragonfly wings from Sn@tch and knew I needed to build a fairy outfit around them. The wings are just 35L per play so I stocked up.  Then I found the “Jocelyn” hair from Alice Project, one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. And at 75L per play I was ready to go wild with sixteen different packs to win.  Cila is finishing off my fairy day with the ‘Doris – Lace Princess’ corselets and skirts for 75L per play. These are Fitmesh so you don’t have to play only your size but be sure to pick up the Alpha set at the machine for free.

Oh My Gacha is a great event with a ton of machines to play. Decore, pets and quite a few unisex and men’s items can all be found there. But hurry… it only runs till July 31st!  Your taxi to – OMG- Oh My Gacha

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [1]

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!

***************

Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

Asian Wonders

Snapshot

The cute mini kimono I am wearing is FREE on the Living like japan hunt from Hapi*Rabi.  You are looking for a little pink origami bird and this store has been kind enough to put it right in plain site. While super easy to find you only have til the 15th so don’t delay. Snapshot

This lovely Chinese Court costume which includes the fan and head dress are FREE from JOMO on their lucky letter boards which does require you joining their FREE group.  The earrings are from Sigma Jewels FREE and another Living Like Japan hunt item (LLJH). Again an easy to find pink origami birds, simply follow the hints at the LLJH site, remember you only have til the 15th.

Snapshot

All of the very well detailed decor items and building in my pics today come from the JOMO Shops and they are all FREE. A bonus, all the items I am showing are low in prims.  There are so many FREE gifts throughout the shops on the sim you could be there an hour picking them up. I am featuring Asian items today but there are several non Asian FREEBIES as well. There are decor items, builds, clothes, costumes, skins and weapons. With so many choices there has to be something to tickle both girls and guys fancy so its well worth a trip over to JOMO to have a look around, remember there are FREE items to be found in all the shops with the bulk of them being in the FREE shop. If you want to score a few more gifts you can join the FREE group and play the lucky letter boards found in the room containing all FREEBIES. If you look at the ground as you arrive you will see an arrow pointing you to “buildings” if you take that path the freebie room is the 1st shop on your right, you will see the jars from picture 1 outside the shop.

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

PicMonkey Collage

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.
