Sweet Sue

Hey FabFree!

Sweet Sue

I found a nifty “New To Me” design for us today: The Beautiful Ones. I stumbled across them and was delighted to see this super cute short dress was the free group gift for August. This is ‘Sue’ and it comes in the standard sizes S-L as well as appliers for Belleza Venus, Maitreya, and SLink Hourglas and Physique.  This dress is also available in several other colors for regular price but the stunning turquois is a group member exclusive color. The Beautiful Ones group is a tiny little 25L to join but there are a ton of past gifts available. The past gift machine will ask you for 1L but will pay you back immediately.  No room for more groups? You can still pick up past gifts for just 10L each.

August is drawing to a close so don’t delay if you want to pick up this great dress!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

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.

End of Summer

Hello FabFree!

End of Summer

Summer is winding down now but the days are still hot and I don’t want to wear anything but cool shorts and tops. But you still want to start wearing those soft rustic shades of Fall. That’s why the “Indian Summer” hunt from Ghee is the perfect answer. Ms. Love mentioned this hunt in her post here so I had to go check it out. And I was not disappointed.  You’ll find thirty nine little spice jars hidden all over priced at 10L to 25L.  Now the jars are not numbered but each one is named for a different spice so we can keep track of them. You’ll find tops, dresses, shoes, shorts, jewelry and accessories all in one of three end-of-summer shades.

I picked the “lace trim belted shorts” in ivory and paired them with the ‘Indian Summer blouse’ in taupe and the ‘Indian Summer’ sandals in ivory. The “Swirl” necklace and earrings also come in ivory, taupe and chilli ( a soft rusty red)

The clothing pieces come in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and several pieces come with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink. The sandals all are for SLink flat feet.

You can fill up your spice cabinet and your wardrobe at the Indian Summer Hunt until September 2nd!

Orangutan

Orangutan Baby I got a baby orangutan! hahaha I think this sweet little girl is too cute for words. I named her Princess Mombi but you can name yours anything you like. These adorable little orangutan babies are available at the current round of N21 from Black Bantam. These hold-able pets are 75 lindens per play and come in a few color variations. Upon receiving your orangutan you’ll know by clicking on him/her whether you adopted a boy or a girl. There are lots of fun ways to interact with your orangutan baby via the touch menu such as cuddling or kisses. Once you choose an action you’ll see an emote come up in local chat. Also, since these little babies are gachas so you can trade and collect them. Stop by N21 and get yours!
Pumpkin SpiceNext up, gO! has a new group gift out, and as always it’s beautiful! The colors in this halter style, hi-lo dress remind me of the coming fall season. I instantly thought of yummy pumpkin spice lattes and pretty fall leaves. The Olga dress comes in standard mesh size options, as well as Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. This gift is FREE to all gO! group members, and the gO! group has a one-time join fee of 50 lindens. I think this pretty dress is well worth the fee!

Finally, I picked up these classic pumps at Empire. They are one of the current FREE Lucky Letter prizes in an exclusive coral shade. You’ll still be able to change the color of the shoe sole using the standard Empire hud included. They come in a Maitreya Lara fit, Slink fit, Belleza fit, and a TMP fit. To get these pretty pumps head to the second floor of the Empire store, and join the Empire Updates group. The Empire Updates group is FREE to join, and is separate from the Empire VIP group.

***I’d also like to note that I’m noticing the windlight setting I used is making everything, including the dress, shoes, and the skin Pru is wearing appear a shade darker than they actually are. Please keep that in mind should you decide to pick them up. 

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mrs. B’s Designs closing sale :(

Hey FabFree.

MsB's

I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world.  But, happily, it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L.  The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.

I hate to see Ms B’s Design close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

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…

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

This May Be Wrong, But It Feels So Right

Snapshot_002Good morning FabFree!  It has been a quiet couple of days on the blog due to many of us Fab Writers having RL issues/excitement, but don’t let that think that you have to take a break from freebie shopping, because there is plenty out there.  Have a peek at our Fabulously Free in SL Scoop.It Page where we scoop up our own posts, but also other offers we haven’t had time to blog… or maybe check out our flickr pool where other bloggers/photographers pop their photos into with under 75L items.  Don’t give up on us here, we’ll be back to our usual freebie posting schedule very soon!

Today I am here to share that This is Wrong has added a new free outfit to their gift wall where you will find that there is a handful of clothing items for women and men that are all priced at 0L for you to enjoy.  The casual Pic Nic Outfit that I am wearing is the latest addition and is a one piece mesh item that comes in Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh body specific sizes.  I didn’t try it with the system body, but I have a feeling it would work just fine by digging out an alpha layer or two from another outfit in your inventory.  I should note that on the back of this shirt is the a large vampire mouth with fangs and while it doesn’t seem like something I would normally wear, it’s actually pretty cool and reminds me of True Blood.  This outfit is way Sookie!

These trendy High Tops were just what I needed to complete my outfit today.  I picked up the GOS Boutique High Tops for free at The Gacha Garden Event and then played the gacha machine @75L per play to apply the colour.  Without the purchased applier they have a text print all over them rendering them a demo pretty much, so I probably wouldn’t have picked them up unless I had intended to play for an applier… which I did!
