Weekend Independence!

Hello FabFree Folks and Happy Independence Day to all us crazy Americans! I hope your day is filled with festivities and fire works!

Weekend Independence

My SL day started off with a bang when I got the group notice from Heydra about the great weekend event going on right now. Heydra is celebrating Independence Day with a 40% off everything ( except limited Venders) in the store AND they’ve made the group FREE to join over the weekend.  This is your opportunity to get in on a great Group with a very generous perks such as member only Lucky Chairs, Midnight Mania boards and monthly group gifts. And if that wasn’t enough group members get 300L instore credit every month!

I popped over to Heydra this morning and found this charming tee and scarf set on the camping chair and … yes… I camped!  This is the ‘Charlotte shirt with scarf and HUD’.  The HUD lets you pick fifteen colors/patterns for the tee and ten colors/patterns for the scarf. While I was there, I grabbed these cute distressed ‘Hayley’ jeans from the past group gifts wall.

I rounded off my shopping today with a quick trip to the Marketplace and found this adorable tote bag. This the “American Flag Tote Bag” from Things i Like. It’s beautifully detailed and comes with an animation for a hand hold or a shoulder hold. And it only set me back 25L. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Okay, I’m of to fire up the grill for our cook out and light some sparklers. Y’all have a wonderful 4rth of July!

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

What’s New Pussycat?

Hello FabFree Folks! If you haven’t already guessed: I love cats! So when I saw there was a Cats! Hunt, I knew I was going Hunting!

Cats_001

First up, this is the “Cats Hunt”  dress from Get Frocked. I love the little black cats on the skirt and the back has a really unusual open design. It goes perfectly… or should I say ‘purrrrr fectly’ with my new tattoo from French Vintage Couture.  The “Cats” tattoo comes with two thigh sets of paw prints, one set for the spine and even a set for your face.  My necklace continues the paw print theme and adds a little heart to it. This is the ‘Paw” necklace from Miss Jewel.

Cats_002

Now, I know we normally don’t blog things like tip jars but when I saw that you can add your own photo and this being all about our feline friends… I had an opportunity to show off my real world fur babies.  This is the Curious Cats tip jar from Tipsters. It is a very nice build and I love that you can add your own photo to it. I’m going to keep it around as a super cute picture frame since it only takes up 3 land impact points.  And if you’re ‘curious’ … from left to right that’s Malachi, Boomer, Ivy and Cassie all sitting in the window saying ‘hi’ as I come home.

The 1L Cats! Hunt runs until July 30th so have fun!

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

garden1

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

garden3

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do ;) . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

garden2

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality :) .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

A Booty Call From WHC!

hoorenbeek biker boots 3_001

After years of hearing about “booty calls,” I finally get to make one! This one goes out all the freebie foragers reading Fab Free: The Hoorenbeek subscribo gifts have changed again and the items available are spectacular! Pictured above are the UNISEX gritty black Mesh Heritage boots, now available for FREE from Hoorenbeek. Using a system different from most subscribos, in order to obtain these great boots, you need to go and click to subscribe. Then, wait two weeks and go back to pick up your gifts. As you can see from the picture, these boots are worth the extra effort. They are black with realistic dirt stains, just like my boots in real life (except on Second Life you don’t need glue to apply the dirt – I like my real life clothes to look as realistic as I can possibly make them look). The gift contains 4 different variations of the Heritage boots: regular (with or without socks), tall and short. This is an impressive package for a free gift, and the boots themselves are very detailed and lifelike. If you are already in the Hoorenbeek subscribo, run to pick these boots up. If you aren’t, then now is the time to get your name in the system. Hoorenbeek gifts are almost always excellent.

I was excited to do The Biker Hunt and, in the process, I found some noteworthy boots. MayCreations’ gift for The Biker Hunt are the Mesh Hunter boots in grungy black, shown in the picture above. They feature finely textured black leather with silver accents, including thin studded decorative bands in the ankle area that give these boots a very distinctive look. I also love the sharply pointed toe. Although MayCreations doesn’t specifically mention them being Unisex, I imagine they would look fantastic on a female avy as well as a male one. The boots do have a resizer in them. Also, a great bonus to this gift is that it includes a slink male version for those who can use it. I am always snapping up slink items for when I can finally afford to add slink to my avy, so I find gifts like this especially exciting to pick up. The Biker Hunt is a 1L hunt that continues until July 20th, and the item you are looking for is a motorcycle headlamp.

If you haven’t had enough booty already, there’s one more store you should call on. The white leather boots shown in the picture are from Forsaken Falls, another hunt prize on The Biker Hunt. Their great pebbled-grain white leather texture looks intriguing and carries a black abstract design that I found hard to interpret. The markings on the Mesh Biker Boots seem to incorporate skulls and such, but they aren’t overly obvious. If this kind of style influences your clothing choices, then take a good look at the boots up close. They have a unique style to their texture that separates them from a lot of boots out there, and for a 1L hunt prize, they are definitely worth a good look. I was very pleased with them.

Finally, this week I want to highlight the photo prop I used in making this post. It was created by Mrs. B. Designs, who offers it as their prize in the Biker Hunt. The Easy Rider motorcycle is non-driveable, but looks great for photos and comes with a couple’s pose that I chose not to use this week simply because I was using the bike to display the boots. In the pictures this week, I tinted it slightly beige to simulate it being a bit dirty. If you collect photo props like I do, this is a very nice addition to your collection, I highly recommend it. Three different sets of fabulous boots in one week? Not bad for my first booty call, if I do say so myself! Until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Under the Stars

And so, we’re back to Monday, my FabFree Dears.  I hope y’all had a good weekend and are starting this week with a smile.

new_003

I’m smiling because I’m starting a bunch of new Hunts. One Hunt full of really cute prizes is the Living Like Japan Hunt. This ruffled crop top is the ‘Sweet McFlury’ from Holli Pocket. As soon as I saw it I remembered long summer evenings at the fair or some little street carnival. It’s casual but still pretty and flirty. Then I found the sporty pink sneakers for system feet from Selfie and I knew I had an outfit.

Well, most of an outfit.  Then Just Because put out their latest group gift. It was like they were reading my mind! This is the ‘Denim Lace Skirt’ in pink and this completes my outfit perfectly.  Just Because has loaded this group gift with everything you could need. There are the standard mesh sizes L-XXS, plus versions for SLink Body, Belleza ( V 0.02 and V3) and Maitreya!  Plus the HUD included let’s you change the lace to one of seventeen different colors. All that and the Just Because group is free to join!

The Living Like Japan Hunt runs until July 15th so don’t delay!

Dreaming in Blue

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!  I’m popping on to show y’all a Fifty Linden Friday item so this is gonna be quick! *waves to Kimmie Banufong* Thanks for the tip!

Hunt_001

First, the shoes. These are the Gabby Plats Heel for SLink ( and Belleza and  Meitreya AND The Mesh Project) High Feet from Reign. For this Friday special you can grab the fatpack for just 50L. I love the lace overlay detail, it’s so unusual and it’s really well done here.  But if you want it you need to hurry!

Second, is this gorgeous dress from More Than Ever. This is the ‘Blue Forest’  dress and it’s MTE’s prize for us girls in the 1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt. There is a matching loincloth/ kilt for the guys in the prize box too and it’s… very smexy! *waggles her eyebrows*  All of the Hunt’s items are inspired by fantasy and fairies but this fluttery summer dress is too pretty to only have one label. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a day in the park or a warm summer evening’s outing?  Unlike the heels, you have until July 21 to get your Hunt on and scoop up all the 1L prizes!
