Lavendula Angustifolia

Lavendula Angustifolia

There’s nothing I love more than Lavender.  It’s been an important part of my life for years and years.  I love the way it looks, the way it smells, and all the memories it brings back of trips I took to the South of France.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before here, but I’m the kind of person who has a little sachet of the stuff under my pillow to ensure sweet dreams.  I get to decorate my home in it in SL, and that brings me just a little spark of joy!

Wash it Up!

The Wash Event continues, and really the more you explore the more you find!  I couldn’t resist these gorgeous decor items by Kaerri.  The elegant chairs are the things that dreams are made of for me, and the fact that each decor item cost only 25L is a deal and a half.  I got the chairs, curtains, mirror, and planters there and I couldn’t be happier!  There are a bunch of other items too, including a table and lots of little plants.  I can just imagine the scent!

Clothed in Comfort

While I was at The Wash, I also picked up this sweet outfit by Shae’s.  The top and jeans cost just 25L each, and they are a perfect fit.  I love the way it all looks on – the perfect mix of comfort and sexy.  There are a bunch of different colours to choose from, as well as different jean washes to satisfy all your denim cravings.  You can even pick up the matching shoes to the set for just 50L at their display.

Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Spring really is here, I suppose, though we’ve all been a bit busy with all the world’s goings-on to notice it.  It’s the perfect time to redecorate, start a new project, and even try out a new look.  You all know it’s much easier to do it in SL, and I’ve found the perfect little details to get you started on your Spring reawakening!

Dress Up

Of course you can’t do any effective redecorating if you’re not dressed to the nines.  That’s how it works, right? Luckily, Rosary have put out a new group gift for their members.  This form-fitting mini dress hits all the right “I’m about to redecorate like mad” notes.  Or you know, something that actually makes sense.  It comes in 8 gorgeous hues and to get it all you have to do is join their group for 350L and click on the vendor.  There are two other gifts out right now, and they’re quite generous with their monthly gifts, so it’s well worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Time to Decorate

Now that you’re suitably attired for some SL decorating, Hive have got just the goodies for you to give your space a bit of a lift.  They’ve posted 6 items priced at just 1L each in their marketplace store and they’re all giving off elegant farm vibes.  I love it.  I’ve added the ad below so you can see just what’s on offer.  Cool right?  Thank you Hive!

Afternoon Naps

FabFree Post: Afternoon Naps

Afternoon Naps

After such a rainy weekend here, with loads of real-life chores, I plan on spoiling myself today with a lovely afternoon nap! There is nothing better than a blissful quiet empty house with nothing to do. So today’s post is all about this comfortable bed I found from the Stay At Home Club (everything is free with no group needed *some items may require a L$1 payment but it is refunded right back) This bed set from Inner Demons is modern with an industrial flair. The set comes with Bed, Sidetable, Dresser, Decor Vase, Ottoman, and Carpet.

I found this sexy Green Lingerie at [Marquesse] and snagged it free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Group! I was in heaven when I spotted this find because well you should know by now I’m a fan of Green!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Standard Sizes (XXS – L)

So if you do nothing else today, spoil yourself with a lil afternoon nap!

Lots of love,
Bunnie

Shelter in Place

Shelter Fort

Well, the impending doom seems to be coming so I am getting my Shelter Fort ready! Thankfully Astralia released a new free group gift that is an inflatable mattress with a cute lil pugicorn. Its really worth the fee to join (L$149) their VIU (very important unicorns) Group, the quality of the shop’s gifts never cease to amaze my avi.   **ALSO** Please note they have moved! So make sure you snag a landmark when you arrive at their new store location.

*CandyKitten* also has crazy kool FREE Group Gift for members, the fee to join their group is L$400 but totally worth all the amazing lucky letter boards, midnight madness, and the shop updates their group gifts often enough I feel like I owe them money! This cute top and skirt is their current gift out, reminded me of a living room fort day not too long ago.

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

Hey Fab Free! Did you know that the Steam Hunt is going on right now? It is a super fun hunt which on for the whole month of March. It is one of the longest-running hunts in SL and it’s also the only steampunk-themed hunt left on the grid. Yesterday I did some hunting at the Steam Expo, where there is a sim-wide hunt game. All of the free décor gifts shown here are hunt prizes you can get from this gear hunt game.

The Gear Game

The Steam Hunt/Expo’s gear hunt game is really fun! What you do is teleport to the start location of the hunt where you will grab a gear games HUD on the wall. Unpack the HUD and attach it to your screen. Now you will run around all over the expo sim and look for the bronze coloured gears, and click them with your HUD on. The bronze or copper-coloured gears will give you points, and if you click silver gears that will take away your points- so don’t click the silver ones! The gears just pop up randomly, so look all around!  You want to accumulate as many points as you can and you can check your point count on the HUD.

Points for Prizes

Once you have lots of points, you can exchange them for prizes. Each prize costs from 1 to 30 points each, and it is quite easy to win enough points to get all the prizes around the sim. In different creators’ booths around the sim, there will be writing in yellow over the prizes which states how many points each one costs. The HUD and the game is completely free to play, so whatever prizes you get will be a free addition to your inventory. There are 35 prizes in total that I could find.

Steam Hunt XV Store-Wide Hunt

Note that the gears game hunt is a sim-wide hunt in addition to their grid-wide hunt. The gears game hunt featured in this blog post is part of the hunt, but they have a larger grid-wide hunt too! So there are basically two hunts part of the Steam XV Expo/Hunt event this month. If you want to do their grid-wide hunt please visit the Historical Hunt Ltd. website for a list of stores. The hunt prizes are available to find until March 31st. The grid-wide hunt is also a 0L, completely free hunt.

Have fun hunting, Fab Free!

In the Darkness

In the Darkness

Into the Darkness

With the new standards everyone is facing and the impending uncertainty we will see tomorrow and the days ahead, I found myself staring in the darkness like many others. However, amid this new needed lifestyle we are all experiencing together, know that we will all get through this as one happy family. So come on and have a seat with me on this lovely pouf seat and let us have some tea!

The cuteness and versatility of this amazing Group Gift from Nerenzo are above the normal standards and a gift from the heavens! The cost to join the Nerenzo Group is L$50 but well worth the price for this! The poufs are available in both “Cuddle” and “Adult” so you can have some for your family room and your “Play Room” alike.

The Asteria outfit is FREE, yes, I know the quality in the outfit is amazing, to say the least. With 10 colors to choose from you can find your favorite, (well unless your favorite colors is Skybluepink *real color in my world*) and they fit my Maitreya body perfectly! Head over to Asteria and get the Group (free to join) and head inside the shop to the right you have all the past gifts including this sexy top and bottom.

Asteria Top & Garter Panties Fit
