You Are My Anchor

UntitledHi there FabFree Readers! I am just packing up for a quick little trip to the mountains in “RL”, but I had  little time between laundry loads to pop in here and share news about this cute new Nautical Dress that I managed to pick up for just one little linden!

Sevyn East is participating in The Womenstuff Hunt, and the dress I am showing off today is actually the 1L prize if you can believe it.  The Nautical Dress includes a texture change hud that has three different nautical themed prints, so really… it’s like three dresses for 1L!  This white/navy combo with the anchors was my favourite of the three but the other two are super cute with ships and life preservers.  This dress is compatible with Maitreya, Ebody, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies and also comes in a fitted mesh for everyone else.

Speaking of Sevyn East, be sure to check out their group gift offerings too.  Julianna showed us one of the two group gifts that are currently available [HERE].

Enjoy your weekend!

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Here’s a little something for merchants. If you’d like to get your store into a hunt, these are the ones that are looking for participants…

Late Afternoon

Heyya Fabfree! I hope your weekend is going as wonderfuly as mine!

Late Afternoon

I just dropping in to show off a couple of fresh finds for us.  I’m still opening boxes and bags from the Women’s Stuff Hunt and when I opened this super cute top from Tin Roof, I knew I had to show y’all. This is the ‘Daisies’ top and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. Daisies comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and FitMesh for SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and TMP.  The rusty red is an exclusive color for this top only for the Women’s Stuff Hunt!

My skirt is a free Group Gift from a ‘New To Me’ designer -> Egoxentrikax.  This is the ‘Pao’ skirt and it’s the current free group gift in the main shop. Pao comes in FitMesh sizes XXS-XXL as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink.  If beige isn’t your color, the gift also includes this skirt in a denim blue.

As always, I wish y’all the best weekend out there on the Grid. And, since you’re going to be out there… why not grab a picture and submit it to the FabFree Photo Challenge! I know our readers have some wild creativity! So lets see it!  The contest begins August 15 so don’t delay.

Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

Enchantress

Hey FabFree!

Enchantress

I guess this fantasy mood is still going strong with me. I took a last minute trip over to the Epiphany event and this was the Gacha that I just played and played.  This is the ‘Mythiara’ Enchantress gown from Fallen gods Inc. and Faida. The Gacha slips in at 75L per play and has three rare sets of the long gown and 25 common short dresses plus a set of bracers and leg guards. There is also a leather collar that is a free gift for everyone.

The dresses are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body but with a little fussing and a spare alpha layer from my inventory, I got it to work on my system body.

My beautiful new hair style is also from the Epiphany event. This is ‘Atalie’ from Truth Hair. The gacha features three styles of lovely long hair and two unicorn horn accessories. There are 18 commons and 3 rares all for 50L per play.

Last but not least are my little dragon friends. These are ‘Diabolic Dragonlings’ from Darkend Stare. There are 18 commons with each color having both a static shoulder pet and an animated flying pet plus 2 static decor rares. I personally think they’re more cute than demonic… but I can be odd. One quick note. Both of my dragonlings here are the shoulder pets. I edited ‘Aro’ so he’d sit on my arm for the picture.

All of my treasures today can be found at the Epiphany Event but it only runs until August 15th so hurry hurry, my dears!

Kitty From The Garden

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulous Readers :)  I did some hopping around last night and found a couple of hotspots I wanted to tell you about.

First…  My new dress!!  Starr Fashion, who is the designer of women’s clothing in Second Life has a ton of freebies in the way of group gifts, midnight mania board prizes and lucky chairs offers a free to join group giving you access to them ALL!  I am wearing the Pheobe Spring Chevron halter dress that is available as a free group gift at Starr Fashion.  This dress is available in XXS – L mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh specific sizes.

Another destination in Second Life you should really take a trip to if you are into freebie finding, is The Gacha Garden Event who is celebrating their Birthday with tons of group gifts set to the free Gimme Gacha inworld group.  You can find these gifts sprinkled around the gacha machines on the ground  in boxes and bags by following the path which will take you all the way around.  My favourite of the bunch, is the Curious Kitties Birthday Present by Jian.  This little guy meows and is animated too.  He comes with options such as resize and sound on/off.

ps.  The sound on/off thing is handy for those with RL dogs like mine – who are franticly trying to locate said meowing cat, crashing into chairs, peeking under beds and ripping apart blankets.  It was fun at first but now he’s just sitting there staring at me while whining because he can’t find it. *sound off*.

Noir

I’m still feeling sort of ‘fantasy fantastic’ today… or would that be Fabulous Fantasy?

Noir

Anyway. I found a new to me area that is having a nifty little hunt: The Fall of Man Sim. Kind of a foreboding name but you’ll find all sorts of fun fantasy type shops there and until August 31, a Back to School Hunt! I found this gorgeous black gown and attached cape from Oi Bae! and its the 1L prize for the hunt. This is the ‘Dragon Gown’ and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. The belt is a separate piece and it also comes in XS-XL.

I’m going to steal something Gabriel found while checking out the L’Homme group gifts. The butterflies I’m dancing with today are the free gift from Zibska for the L’Homme readers. “Flurtur Noir” comes with the large ‘orbit’ of black butterflies, plus a smaller orbit from one shoulder. The gift also includes a lovely crown made of black butterflies that I’m not wearing today. The L’Homme group is free to join and you can jo9in from the kiosk in the participating merchants shops.

 

Edited to fix my misspelling the name of the store! Oi indeed… guess I needed another cup of coffee before I blogged😛

Snapshot_002Good morning FabFree!  It’s Monday, August 8th and I am up and at ’em bright and early to take care of business!  By business of course, I mean all the RL stuff I avoided last week… <sighs>.  It is a revolving door of doom that I can’t seem to escape!  Tuesday is probably the only day of the week I am ever up to date.

Of course I am still procrastinating my tasks, and took a little time to put together a post for you here!  Everyone needs a break right?  Check out this Vest Top & Pencil Skirt that is available as a free group gift at Satus Inc.. It is a one piece mesh design that includes the top and bottom together and is available in XS-XL Fitmesh, Slink, Belleza and Maitreya specific sizes.

The Satus Inc.. inworld group is 25L to join, however there are several other gifts to pick up making this fee seem non-exsistant.

Dream a Summer Dream

Dream a Summer Dream

Sometimes we need to recharge… take a moment to close our eyes and dream. I found the perfect sim for it if you like art and books. You might want to stop by the Arts and Literary Salon where there is book discussions and art displays for you to enjoy.

I took the chance to put together a dreamy summer look while I enjoyed one of the blankets under a charming little tree I found. My look is courtesy of Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning.

First, I picked up the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that Wicca’s Wardrobe is generously contributing to this hunt as a prize. It is this lovely strawberry dress in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The box also includes two texture patterns of the dress, so you get not only the dress I am showing, but one additional pattern. And only 1L for all of this strawberry goodness!

I was pleased to discover that the August group gift at Wicca’s Wardrobe was a sexy pair of boots that matched the dress quite nicely. These over the knee dragon boots come in standard mesh as well as slink fits. To get them to fit my Maitreya body, I simply removed my feet. They are highly detailed, and there is a male version of the boots out for group members as well. If you are not already a member, the group fee is 50L, but you get access to many past group gifts as well as these fantastic boots, making it well worth your join fee.

I’m off for a nap and a dream. Enjoy your day!
