Weekend Independence!

Hello FabFree Folks and Happy Independence Day to all us crazy Americans! I hope your day is filled with festivities and fire works!

Weekend Independence

My SL day started off with a bang when I got the group notice from Heydra about the great weekend event going on right now. Heydra is celebrating Independence Day with a 40% off everything ( except limited Venders) in the store AND they’ve made the group FREE to join over the weekend.  This is your opportunity to get in on a great Group with a very generous perks such as member only Lucky Chairs, Midnight Mania boards and monthly group gifts. And if that wasn’t enough group members get 300L instore credit every month!

I popped over to Heydra this morning and found this charming tee and scarf set on the camping chair and … yes… I camped!  This is the ‘Charlotte shirt with scarf and HUD’.  The HUD lets you pick fifteen colors/patterns for the tee and ten colors/patterns for the scarf. While I was there, I grabbed these cute distressed ‘Hayley’ jeans from the past group gifts wall.

I rounded off my shopping today with a quick trip to the Marketplace and found this adorable tote bag. This the “American Flag Tote Bag” from Things i Like. It’s beautifully detailed and comes with an animation for a hand hold or a shoulder hold. And it only set me back 25L. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Okay, I’m of to fire up the grill for our cook out and light some sparklers. Y’all have a wonderful 4rth of July!

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

garden1

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

garden3

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do ;) . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

garden2

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality :) .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

Tell Me Sweet Lies

Snapshot_005
Hello Fabulous Readers! First I must apologize for the MIA thing I have been doing. You know what they say… When it rains it pours, and it’s coming down in RL buckets right now! I did manage to put together a quick post of affordables for you today and I hope that you find something you like!

I tried my luck on the Sweet Lies gacha machine at The Fantasy Collective, and it must have been a good and lucky day because I walked away with everything I needed in just a few pulls!  I am wearing the Dune Dress (#6) along with the Dune Slink Add-on Sandals and The Dune Bag.  This machine is 50L per play.

The decorative items in the background are by Apt B and are available as part of the Rustic Now Set.  (59L per play – instore gacha).

I’ll be back soon!

Under the Stars

And so, we’re back to Monday, my FabFree Dears.  I hope y’all had a good weekend and are starting this week with a smile.

new_003

I’m smiling because I’m starting a bunch of new Hunts. One Hunt full of really cute prizes is the Living Like Japan Hunt. This ruffled crop top is the ‘Sweet McFlury’ from Holli Pocket. As soon as I saw it I remembered long summer evenings at the fair or some little street carnival. It’s casual but still pretty and flirty. Then I found the sporty pink sneakers for system feet from Selfie and I knew I had an outfit.

Well, most of an outfit.  Then Just Because put out their latest group gift. It was like they were reading my mind! This is the ‘Denim Lace Skirt’ in pink and this completes my outfit perfectly.  Just Because has loaded this group gift with everything you could need. There are the standard mesh sizes L-XXS, plus versions for SLink Body, Belleza ( V 0.02 and V3) and Maitreya!  Plus the HUD included let’s you change the lace to one of seventeen different colors. All that and the Just Because group is free to join!

The Living Like Japan Hunt runs until July 15th so don’t delay!

For the night is dark and full of terrors

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. I was in love with the books from the day the first one hit the shelves waaayyy back when.  SO when I saw that Seraphim was hosting a GoT inspired event… I was really really excited. The Conquest Event did not disappoint!

night_001

There are a ton of designer who clearly love Games of Thrones as much as I do. First up, this is the Melisandre set from Sweet Lies.  For 50L per play you can celebrate our favorite Red Woman, priestess of the lord of light and all around burn ’em all gal. There are five common dresses, all in shades of conflagration red and three rares: The golden chain belt, the handful of fire both of which I’m showing plus a ruby necklace.

night_002

Now I know that Melisandre didn’t work for the Targaryens but when I found this gorgeous necklace in Lost Junction’s gacha for just 50L per play and I knew I was going to go “off book” for this post. There are nine necklaces, one for each of the great Houses, with no rares. With my necklace in place, I went looking for something for my hair and I found the ‘Kyla’ gcaha from Distorted Dreams.  There are eight jeweled commons, four in gold and four in silver. The rares are these tiaras with the jewels and the roses. Technically there are four rares: black roses with gold metal, black roses with silver metal, red roses with gold and red roses with silver. However you get both the gold and silver versions of the roses when you pull a rare.

Your taxi to The Conquest Event which runs until July 10!

Dreaming in Blue

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!  I’m popping on to show y’all a Fifty Linden Friday item so this is gonna be quick! *waves to Kimmie Banufong* Thanks for the tip!

Hunt_001

First, the shoes. These are the Gabby Plats Heel for SLink ( and Belleza and  Meitreya AND The Mesh Project) High Feet from Reign. For this Friday special you can grab the fatpack for just 50L. I love the lace overlay detail, it’s so unusual and it’s really well done here.  But if you want it you need to hurry!

Second, is this gorgeous dress from More Than Ever. This is the ‘Blue Forest’  dress and it’s MTE’s prize for us girls in the 1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt. There is a matching loincloth/ kilt for the guys in the prize box too and it’s… very smexy! *waggles her eyebrows*  All of the Hunt’s items are inspired by fantasy and fairies but this fluttery summer dress is too pretty to only have one label. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a day in the park or a warm summer evening’s outing?  Unlike the heels, you have until July 21 to get your Hunt on and scoop up all the 1L prizes!
