The Glow Up

The Glow Up

Happy Mon-Slay Fab Free!  I am refusing to let the Mondays get me down today so I’m going to glow as hard as I can go and leave the rest of the dull world behind in my wake!

Galactica

There’s nothing quite like a shiny bodysuit to keep me happy.  I love the impracticality of it all, to be honest.  When could you really wear a shiny, latexy one piece suit?  In SL, of course!  This one is pretty fun (it comes in 6 different colours), and it’s also quite affordable!  There’s a cute hunt going on over at Epoch to celebrate their new home.  Just search for the 9 little lollipops that are hiding all over the sim (lots to explore in their new Japan-themed space) and buy for 10 L.  I found this great bodysuit, though there are also several pairs of shoes and other goodies that I picked up along the way if you’re willing to search just a bit!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Strike That Pose

While I was at Fashiowl the other day, I noted that there were several packs of free poses to pick up there.  Today I’m showing you the Glowstick poses (which of course come with these super fun and extremely glowy glowsticks). I picked them up for free without any group join required, which is always a nice little treat.  Inside the box you’ll find several poses and a bunch of different coloured glowsticks to go with each pose!

Don’t let Monday get YOU down either!

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. If you’re in need of some retail therapy, but your lindens (like mine!) are limited, you might check out the Black and White Hunt happening at CroM. This hunt is a CroM store hunt, and the prizes are 5 linden each. You’ll be looking for small black and white televisions hidden around the store. The short-alls and long sleeve top Pru has on are together one of the 5 total prizes. The top and overall shorts come in quite a few sizes, an alpha layer for classic avatars. Also, the top and shorts can be worn separately.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Voluptuous, Fitmesh (s,m,l), Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Venus)

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

The Siren’s Song

The Siren's Song

Most of the time when you think of sirens singing, it’s not necessarily a good thing. You know… rocks, ship wrecks, sailors drowning. But this Siren’s Song has none of the bad things and ALL good things!  ‘Cause it’s a free Hunt! Mishmash Fusion is certainly one of those good things… two good things, in fact, one for us ladies and one for the guys as well!

Dark Siren

First up is the ladies prize for the Siren’s Song Hunt from Mishmash Fusion. This is the “Dark Siren” swimsuit and it will only cost you a little hunting. Yep, it’s a free prize! The suit is beautifully textured and each piece is separate for easy fitting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Venus, Isis, Freya
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Fine, Curvy
  • TMP

 

A Siren for the Guys

Mishmash Fusion hasn’t ignored our wonderful men on this hunt either. “Siren Swim Set” is a two piece tee and board shorts with a lovely Celtic siren design. Each piece is separate ( and free) and will be a solid addition for mixing and matching in your wardrobe.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh XS-XL
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

The Siren’s Song Hunt runs until June 30th

The sea calls to me

FabFree: The sea calls to me

Hey there Fabulouses!  Pru and Aline have both showed you some really nice things in recent blog posts that you can find at the Women Only Hunt & Gacha Event, and I have returned today to show you one of the hunt prizes by [QE] Designs that I really like!

On the fringe

I am a sucker for fringes and when I saw the ad for the [QE] Fringe Kini in the tropics print, I knew I had to get on my hunting glasses and find the hidden kitten with this prize in it.  This 2pc swimwear set comes in several mesh bodies as listed below.  This particular hunt prize is 25L, but some of the others by this maker are 10L.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

I have included the ad for the [QE] Designs prizes below so that you can see if there is anything else you’d like to hunt for by this creator while you are there!

Party On

Party On

I love summertime with all the little farmer’s markets and fairs popping up all over. Both here in real life and on the Grid. I found a neat little fair that’s New-To-Me: The Party People Fair. There’s lots of great venders and things to buy but there’s also a Hunt! A free/0L per prize hunt! If you like a good party, anything from a tea party to a Birthday party and everything in between can be found at the Party People Fair.

Soft Pink

My favorite hunt prize I found ( in a potato, of all things) is this softly patterned “Ethnic Blouse” from Amato. Speaking of New-To-Me, Amato will be one I’m checking out more after the fair if everything is as nice as this blouse!

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XXS-L

Saved by the Bell

Saved by the Bell

Well here I am, having a hamburger and being super awesome and late 80’s -inspired again.  A friend of mine saw this top and said I looked like I had just walked off of the set of Saved by the Bell.  I’m not hating that assessment one bit!  Let’s go have burgers at The Max together and tease our hair til it gets really big!

Women Only!

Have you checked out the Women Only Hunt yet?  Pru told you about a gacha she played while there, but there are also lots of great prizes hidden all over the sim in little adorable kittens!  I picked up this top and shorts combo by Yumz for just 25 Lindens and a bit of hunting.  The cats are pretty much everywhere, so you’re sure to come across something you love!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus (Top Only)
  • Isis (Shorts Only)

Now, where did I put my massive neon earrings?

Beach Weekend, Part 2

Beach weekend, Part 2

I have to admit, I am enjoying this beach weekend idea of Julianna’s. There’s nothing like the surf and sand and soaking in the sun. Of course, one must look good even while one is being very… very lazy.

Don’t waffle on this one

Waffles, the clothing shop not the breakfast, has a great tank top perfect for being lazy on or off the beach. This is the “Summer Surf Hank Jersey” and it’s the 1L prize for the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Just find the blue flip flop hidden in the store and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • Jake
  • TMP

Late Night Swim


Late Night Swim

Hey There Fab Free! Welcome to the blog. I think that Blue and I are going to spend as much of the SL summer as we can in swimwear, and I think you should consider doing so also. haha Luckily the Siren’s Song hunt has started and we were able to pick up another matching set of swimsuits for free. The free gear by Dragonmoon Designs also made the perfect excuse for a late night swim, which is possibly one of my favorite warm weather activities.


Late Night Swim 2

F Hint – “Get Lucky”

M Hint – “It’s all Greek to me.”

These free SSH gifts are just waiting to be found at Dragonmoon Designs. They both come in several sizes and include a color change hud with 3 color choices for some added style options. Each prize is hidden separately, but with the provided hints they shouldn’t be too difficult to find. The hunt object is a sand dollar.

Swim Trunk Sizes: Standard Mesh (xs-L), Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, Belleza (Gianni,Jake), TMP *No Alpha Included

Bikini Sizes: Classic/Standard Mesh (xxs- L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara *No Alpha Included

P.S. The skin Blue has on is a free group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. You can get it with your 7DS group tag. The group is also free to join at this time!

Looking for a Warm Summer Breeze

Where Music Meets the Ocean

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s good to be back home after camping.  It was so, so cold there, and the pupster and I just had to find some summer time temperatures on SL when we got back.  It actually snowed a bit on Memorial Day.  Now for Love’s neck of the woods, that might not be so unusual, but for our part of the world, that is highly unlikely!  Fortunately, the Lighthouse Oasis sim had just what we needed, and Ambient Fashion provided the cutest summery shirt for our ocean side adventure.  I picked up this halter top as a hunt prize in the Red Diaries Hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Lovely Lavender

In addition to coming in one of my favorite colors, the Slaren Halter also features an unusual component created from four black bands connecting the shoulder strap to the neckline.  Black rimmed grommets ensure the cords stay securely fastened.  The right shoulder and the strap around the back of the neck are more traditional, so I decided to pull my hair back to show off the unique left side.  A figure-hugging fit and realistic fabric texture round out the shirt.  The designer thoughtfully included versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars inside the hunt folder, so there’s something for everyone in the package.  All you have to do to add a copy to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a book with a Red Shoe Diaries cover, and pay the 1 Linden dollar fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!
