What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Slink, Maitreya

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/29/2017 – Earthworx

Earthworx Gifts Entrance
Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I’m glad you’re here. I want to start by apologizing for not having a Designer Friday post last week. I really dropped the ball on that, and the rest of the week has just gotten away from me. That said, I’m happy to share with you this week’s designer, Earthworx. The landing point at Earthworx is a central courtyard of sorts with tons of outdoor furniture and decor to see. Virtually everything is for sale, and there is a wide variety of products. At Earthworx you’ll find everything from decor and landscaping to furniture. The styles are also equally varied. The styles range from urban bohemian to gothic fantasy. There are also sign posts along the pathways to tell you where to find things. The above photo is of the entrance to the part of the store where the gifts are found, because that’s important!Earthworx Gifts & Info
From the landing spot you should be able to see into the main entrance where the wall of information is. This is also where you’ll find information about current and upcoming hunts and events. Just around the corner in the same Earthworx building you’ll also find a group only Lucky Letter Chair, and a Midnight Mania board. However as noted on the info wall, all gifts have been moved to the second floor of the other building. As you browse through the many shopping areas of Earthworx you can follow the signs toward the gifts area. Don’t do like I did and miss the stairs to the second floor! They are located in the second/center room of the building.

Once upstairs, you’ll find the Earthworx group gifts and the Earthworx group joiner. There is a one time join fee of 100 lindens for the Earthworx group. You’ll also see that there are some opportunities for group discounts throughout the Earthworx shop. Next to the Earthworx gifts is where the Fabulously Free in SL group gift and the Third Life group gift. To get your Fab Free exclusive gift by Earthworx, you will need to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

What Do I Want to Eat?

What Do I Want to Eat?

I happens to the best of us…

You go to the fridge and stare blankly at what’s inside, trying to decide what you want to eat or if what you want is even in there. Deciding meals have been more difficult for me lately as I want all the things I am no longer supposed to eat because it isn’t good for me. Tell my body that, because sometimes the cravings overcome my dietary needs. Today’s gift is not a wearable, but a furnishing for your SL home. The Chalk Fridge is this month’s group gift at KraftWork, located on one of my favorite sims, The Last Forever. Even though it doesn’t open, it will add a distinctive look to your kitchen area, or even your man cave. Although the group gift is FREE to members, the group does have a joining fee of 25L. But, there are several other gifts available as well. My pose today is by {Way} . The Cristano R. 03 is just 15L, one of several poses available for that price.

Heck with it, I’m going for the ice cream sammich!

Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

Through Heart Shaped Glasses

Holes in My Heart
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’m back with some fun five-linden hunt gifts from the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt. There are so many cute quality gifts on this hunt. The hunt ends September 30th. For now I picked a few of the gifts to share with you. I hope you like these 5 linden HSGH prizes as much as I do!

There’s a Hole in My Heart

First, let’s talk about how cute this chair from The Artist Shed is! It definitely has an eclectic up-cycled feel. I love the way it looks just sitting in my living room. This 5 linden HSGH prize has a single pose (not shown) and is copy so you can set out more than one.

*Hint – A few shades of grey

So Emotional
Through Heart-shaped Lenses

If you somehow missed Astrid’s post with these too-cute glasses by Kotte, you should definitely check it out here. These detailed glasses with their heart-shaped lenses are the HSGH prize at Kotte. Like all the HSGH prizes, these are just 5 lindens. They also come with a hud that lets you change part of the frames, you can choose gold or silver. The glasses also have resize scripts for easy fitting.

*Hint – That blue is getting me high and making me low.

Is My Skeleton Showing?

I love this corset by The Little Bat. It’s perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Yes, I said season. lol Really, I’d wear this corset year-round. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud that gives you 12 color options for the skeleton graphic. Again, this awesome HSGH prize from The Little Bat is just 5 lindens.

*Hint – I love you so much you must kill me now…

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (XS -L)

Studded Flats

Just like the little black dresses, little black flats are a wardrobe staple. These cute flats by Lindy Modern & Retro just have a bit more attitude than most! They are just half of the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt prize at Lindy Modern & Retro. The HSGH prize includes the flats shown, and a matching pair of boots meant for classic system avatar feet. These detailed mesh flats come in 2 sizes.

*Hint – ALETA  bit of Marilyn goes a long way.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/01/2017 – EMU Group

EMU Group Exterior
The Weekend is here Fab Free! Thank goodness. That of course also means it’s time for this week’s designer of the week. This week I’m excited to share with you all about EMU Group. This shop is a bit different than many of the shops we get to discover on the Fab Free blog in that it focuses on scripting, scripted items, furniture, and other builds. Anyone in SL who builds, creates, decorates, or just tinkers would enjoy the EMU Group shop. There’s also an art gallery on the second floor with lots of original artwork. The EMU Group shop is large but easy to navigate. There’s even a room with FREE or very inexpensive items to the right of the main entrance.
EMU Gifts and Info
Once inside the main entrance at EMU Group, you’ll see the online indicator board for the EMU Group team members. There are subscriber group kiosks and group joiners positioned throughout the store. The in world group EMU Group has a one time join fee of 5 lindens. With this group you’ll have group only discounts and access to the group Lucky Chair, and group Midnight Mania boards. Near the chair and boards there’s also a dollarbie gift. In this same room you’ll see new releases on the wall as well. On the same wall is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members. If you’re not in the Fab Free group yet, it’s always FREE to join. Take a moment to explore this cool shop, the EMU Group has something for everyone whether you’re an expert builder or a novice.

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!
