Apple Picking Time

Apple Picking Time

It’s apple picking time! And I love this windblown looking hairstyle that says “fall” that you can pick up right now at KoKoLoReS FREE for September if you hurry! That’s because right now through September 15th, the join fee is waived. You can join the group for FREE and pick up this beautiful style in a fatpack of colors for this month’s group gift.

For just 1L I also hunted down Moolala’s contribution to the Fall Tears Hunt. It is this pretty outfit called Mercury which includes the shorts and bandana style top. You’ll get all the standard sizes plus fitmesh sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

Hitting The Books

Snapshot_006
It’s back to school time again!  The time of year when most kids sulk that their summer fun and sleep in days are over, but parents jump for joy!  As a Mom (and with a risk of dating myself :/), usually I jump for joy…  however this year I have one headed off to post secondary school away from home.  What a bittersweet experience that is!

Anyways, speaking of back to school…  Three are just a few more days left in the FabFree Back To School Photo Challenge!  Of course I can’t participate in the sweet linden prizes, but I wanted to participate in the challenge itself – just for the fun!

I put my cool back to school look together with some of the pieces of the 23 piece Sn@tch The Wanderer  7 Seas Fishing Prize, wearing the Jolie Skater Skirt, Ribbed Sweater and Wanderer Necklace.

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.

Tropical Daydream

Tropical All weekend it’s been raining in my real world. All weekend I’ve been dreaming of somewhere warm and tropical to have an adventure! Thankfully I have Second Life to help my daydreams seem more real. Recently I found out about a little shop called LaGeeny. Even better, I found out about their several group gifts and camping chairs! Also, redMint has an August group gift out, which I love, and a little something extra from NSP Florals.
Tropical 2 This FREE dress from LaGeeny just might be the perfect casual summer dress. It looks light and comfortable with great details. Thanks to a texture change hud with several pattern and solid color options this dress is ultra wearable and could go with just about any style. One of the solid colors is particularly pretty! I chose this playful red floral pattern because it is not only pretty, but it played into that tropical vacation I’ve been dreaming of! The dress is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. How do you get it? First you’ll need to join the LaGeeny in world group. The group is FREE to join. Then you’ll need to camp out in the group only camping chair for 45 minutes. I know 45 minutes sounds like a long time, but if you’ve got someone to chat with while you wait, the time goes by fast. Thankfully I had Love in my IMs keeping me company! There are also some non-group camping chairs and several group gifts available, so take a moment to stop by LaGeeny and take advantage.

Sterling Silver hair is all the rage right now, and I have to admit I am totally on board with this trend. I love the silvery blue tones I’ve been seeing. This long side-swept hairstyle is the most recent FREE group gift at redMint. I’ve always liked redMint hair because it has a unique style to it that you just don’t see anywhere else. The redMint group is FREE to join at this time and there are a few previous FREE group gifts also available. In the package with this lovely gift you’ll find a regular size version of the style, and a larger version for the busty ladies.

Sometimes just the right accessory makes an outfit. I think this is true with the gorgeously done hibiscus flower by NSP Florals. The flower can be resized via touch menu, and costs just 25 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

Hair – [Mello] Beyond Stars – ALLTHECOLORS❤ – FREE Gift

Skin/Catwa Head Applier – Essences – #04 Essences [ToriP02] – 79L per play @Kustom 9

Henna

Snapshot_001Hey there Fabulous Readers!

Ghee has recently released a new group gift called Henna for their inworld VIPs that is a lovely addition to the load of group treats that you can pick up after joining their 250L group.

I am in love with the rich chocolate textures used (especially the top that I think would go with so much of my current inventory!) in the Henna Outfit that includes the Tiered Silk Maxi Skirt in XXS-L mesh sizes and the matching Cami in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Belleza, Slink and Maitreya specific mesh sizes.  This set also includes a pair of corked boho style platform sandals for the slink feet, which I didn’t initially see before taking my photos -.-… Never fails.

If you stop in to Ghee  for a visit, make sure you check out the instore Indian Summer Hunt that Xia Nishi mentioned in his recent Friday Hunt Report too!  If you like the warm browns, Indian inspired texture and boho style in the shown group gift, you might appreciate the hunt items included too as I think they would mix and match quite well with it.

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know?🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

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!
