It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Just a Wish

Just a Wish
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Did you know that Sn@tch has a new 7Seas Fishing outfit out? I got notice of this gorgeous set the other day and had to try my luck. The skirt alone was enough to grab my attention. However, I have to say I am very much impressed with the way the skirt and the sweater both look on. All the pieces to this very gypsy boho style look are lovey really, even though I chose to show just the skirt and sweater in my photo. First, if you have never been fishing with the 7Seas Fishing rod before I’ll give you a quick rundown.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Moonchild

This “Fish for This” outfit from Sn@tch has several pieces. You can score a complete head-to-toe look. You’ll end up reeling in individual pieces of the outfit one at a time. Items like the skirt and top which come in several sizes will be pulled in by color so all size options are included. When I said several pieces are up for grabs, I meant it. There are 24 pieces total including hair, jewelry, and shoes! There are also system layers for classic avatars. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at the complete “Moonchild” outfit by Sn@tch. The mesh skirt and sweater both come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Hourglass, Physique) bodies.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hi There Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I am excited to be able to share some fabulous finds with you. You might be thinking, what an odd combination, a silk robe with bandanna hair. You might be right, it is perhaps a little odd. However, it’s exactly something Pru would do. So think of this as a friendly reminder to just be yourself.

Speaking of the bandanna hair, this style is a current group gift at Fabia. There are actually several group gifts available at Fabia, but this long hairstyle caught my eye the most. It comes with a style hud that lets you choose how the hair does or does not lay over your shoulders. It also is a fatpack with all the color choices. The Fabia group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.

So yes, Pru is wearing a lovely satin-like lace trimmed robe with her skull bandanna, what?! I do like this robe a lot, it’s parted but still covers you up a little. It is a free group-only lucky letter board prize at Insomnia Store. The Insomnia Store group is free to join, and there are multiple lucky letter boards. Also, the letters change fast, so hopefully you won’t have to wait terribly long for your letter/number to appear. This pretty robe comes in the silver version shown and a matching gold version.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique

Hello There Fab Free’rs! The best kind of hunt in Second Life is a free one with lots of designers! The SLF&O hunt recently started, and it’s both free and has quite a few participants. You won’t want to miss this one. I picked up this gorgeous Asian inspired robe at Belle Epoque as part of the SLF&O hunt. The robe comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only. It’s also absolutely free, you just gotta find it! The hunt object for this hunt is a fall leaf.

Recently Love sent me a teleport to Moon hair to slap their Midnight Madness board. I’m so glad she did, I love this hairstyle with this robe. This extra long flowing hairstyle is the free MM board prize at Moon. There’s no need to join any group or wear any tag to participate. Also, the prize hairstyle is a full fat pack with all the color huds included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Aline and the Holograms

Aline and the Holograms

I’m sorry…did someone say HOLOGRAPHIC?  Because I am all about anything that shimmers, shines and even bears a passing resemblance to the love of my life in the 80’s – Jem and the Holograms.  You heard me, I’m all about the big hair, the massive earrings and anyone whose name is Jerrica.  That’s like Jessica, but with R’s!  Come on now, how can you say no to that?  Ok fine, maybe it needs a little toning down, but….really, only just a little!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Have you heard the buzz around the SL Frees and Offers 1st Annual hunt?  It’s big folks, and there are lots of fab designers participating, and loads of prizes to get your mitts on!  I’m showing off the really awesome holographic sweater by Caboodle (purveyors of all things shiny).  Just head on over to their store, and look around for the fall leaf that is hiding somewhere in the store.  The sweater inside is completely free, has three different colour options, and comes sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya bodies.

While on the hunt, I also came across these fantastic shoes by Ch’s (also completely FREE!).  I love the buttons up the side.  Very military-inspired and completely and utterly adorable.  I love them.  There’s an HUD included with a boatload of colour options, and they come sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Good luck!

Ain’t That the Truth

Here comes the next offering from Truth!  This month’s group gift is a really lovely and undone braid called Ciara.  Very sweet and soft.  If braids aren’t your thing, the stylist HUD has the option of turning it into a messy bun.  I do love a good stylist HUD!  As always, the Truth VIP hairstyle comes with a whole fatpack of colours.  If you haven’t joined yet, it’s 350 L, which is extremely reasonable, and SUCH a good deal.  Join the group and check in notices to pick up your own copy!

Until next time!

The Pumpkins Stay

The Pumpkins Stay
Hey There Fab Free’rs! So I’ve decided I can let go of Halloween, but the pumpkins gotta stay. At least until the end of November! Especially this barbed wire pumpkin candle holder by Reka. It’s a free group gift for members of the Reka group. The Reka group is also free to join. I sometimes have a soft spot for things like barbed wire re-purposed into art and the shabby-chic aesthetic.

Speaking of shabby-chic, I think these cute potted succulents fit the description as well. I picked them up for free at the Gacha Garden event. I actually picked up quite a few fantastic free gifts at the current Gacha Garden round. There are tons! The gifts at Gacha Garden require you to wear the Gimme Gacha event group tag. This group is free to join. The succulent gift is by Your Dreams. It comes with a single plant that you can copy and modify.

Next up on my little gift grabbing adventure through the Gacha Garden, this hair. I know Juli already showed you this cute free hairstyle by Fabia in her post “Fab Mad“, but who can resist that hat?! It’s another of the free gifts and it comes in a set of red hair color choices.

Pru’s other-worldly olive colored eyes are the free Gacha Garden gift from Lotus. These eyes come in Lelutka Appliers, Catwa Appliers, and a set of mesh eyes. There are 5 beautiful pupil-less color choices.

It has been a while since Pru had multiple piercings. This piercing set by Supernatural made me wonder why it’s been so long. The set is quite pretty, and is yet another free gift at Gacha Garden. The set includes 4 piercings that can be worn separately or together. There is a full set in gold, and one in silver. A color change hud for the gemstone part of the piercings is also included.

Lastly, I know you can’t see much of it, my apologies, however the wooden coffee table everything is sitting on is also a free gift at Gacha Garden. Its by a shop called Rassuel. The table is short and rectangular, with a single shelf and square legs. It’s a great basic modern looking furniture piece.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Mad

The Gacha Garden is in full ‘Bloom’ this November and it’s full of fabulous Gachas and lots of free gifts for us. You can simple join the FREE Gimme Gacha group at the landing point and all those gifts are yours. Plus, being part of the group means you will get updates and be able to chat with other Garden-Goers. One more thing… the group has a trades chat!

Fabia is Fabulous

It’s like Fabia put out this lovely FREE gift hair just for me! This is ‘Tanya’ and the gift hair with attached hat comes with a HUD for five fun streaked red styles. All redhead, all the time! You can see why I liked it. 😉

Feelin’ a little Mad…

about BoHo style, that is! My gorgeous jacket, vest and shirt is one of the prizes for the “Mad Hatter” gacha from !gO! and at just 75L per play… I played more than a few times. I love that in the !gO! gachas the commons are just as fun and desirable as the Rares. And with twenty seven possible prizes to play for, I bet you’ll find one that makes you “go mad”.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

So Cute it’s Spooky

So Cute it's Spooky

Pru said it was a tough hunt… she warned me! But did I listen…. nooooo.  Spookzilla nearly ate my brain! I went to bed after hunting for longer than I want to admit and dreamed about sneaky little ghosties!  But, oh my goodness, it was worth it!

Mina is ‘mine-a’

I love this Tank! This is ‘Mina’ from [QE] and it’s hidden in a Spookzilla ghostie for 25L. Ya’ll know how crazy I get about well made items and this is just superb. Tiny details, the fabric texture, the fit… all perfect. Mina comes with a HUD for three Halloweeny colors but I think I’ll be wearing this one year round.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XS _ XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Do these jeans make my butt look big?

After falling in love with the Mina Tank, I knew I needed these matching color blocked jeans. Also for 25L.  I actually LOLed when I saw the name… Bubble Butt Jeans. Bubble Butt comes with a HUD to match the Tank and aren’t they the perfect casual day set?!  Even though they’re called Bubble Butts, I am happy to report my butt looks lovely in them… not overly bubbly at all.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XS _ XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

 

Topping it all off…

is my gorgeous new hair style. This is ‘Jillian’ from Astrology. Astrology is offering three hair styles and much like a Gatcha, each ghostie holds one style and one color HUD. The Halloween angle is each style and color HUD also can be found in a blood spattered version. I think I’ll stick with the clean shiny version.

Spookzilla only runs until the 31rst so don’t delay! And don’t say we didn’t warn ya!!

Shell out, shell out!  The witches are out!

The magical night is drawing near…have you found your costume yet?  If you want a full on classic witch look, then I’ve got you covered!

SaNaRae Yay!

If you TP over to SaNaRae and join their group for free, you can pick up a whole bunch of goodies this month.  I checked out the BMS booth and got this hat, hair and dress for free!  There isn’t a size specified, but with a bit of alpha work it fit my Maitreya body perfectly.  Over at the Kokoro Poses booth, I got this cute pose complete with lollipop.  There are bunch of other gifts there too, so go find some awesome at SaNaRae!
