I Want It Painted Black

Let Your Light Shine

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness over the weekend, and set to work on the trail of the Paint It Black Hunt.  The prizes in this hunt cost just 5L each, and are inspired by The Rolling Stones, Rock N Roll, Grunge, Metal, Alt Music, Goth Music, and Rockabilly.  Since the hunt runs through February 28th, you still have plenty of time to track down some prizes for yourself.

A Nocturnal Black Rose

My adorable strapless mini dress from MishMash Fusion took us a *long* time to locate, but it sure was worth the investment of time and the 5L price tag.  With a richly textured fabric, ruffled skirt, and figure hugging fit, this frock is a hot little number!  I love the way it leaves your shoulders bare and allows a generous glimpse of your legs.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Mesh in one size (includes alpha layer)
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I’m in the Mood 

Our second stop on the hunt path was The Little Bat where we quickly located the unisex Mood Necklace.  When I was in school, mood jewelry was *the* item all the girls wore, and I have to admit, I still find the changing tint of the gemstones fascinating.  The circular pendant of this necklace only alters when you adjust the hue using the included 14 texture HUD.  I opted for a monochromatic color scheme for my ensemble tonight, so I kept the original black tone, but could have easily chosen an alternate shade.  For just 5L and the small amount of time spent searching, I came away with a versatile piece of jewelry that will coordinate with a variety of outfits.

New Locks

My up-swept pony hairstyle is the latest free group gift for members of the FABIA Mesh Hair store.  The Valentines style comes with a fat pack of colors including black and white, browns, blonde, red, and “unnatural” HUDs.  It features wispy side bangs that frame your face beautifully.  To pick up this item, you must be a member of the FABIA Mesh Hair group, which has a 100L join fee, but there are past group gifts still available, so you can get several new haircut styles for the fee.

The long weekend passed by so quickly in RL.  After the three days off, my pantry is sorted, completely organized in bins, and labeled.  I sure hope I can keep it that way!  If only my SL inventory was as organized.  Thank goodness for the search feature, otherwise I might never find things in there! Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

✽ Stay Wild, Flower Child ✽

Hippiegirl

Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend :).  It’s actually a long weekend here, so I’ve got an extra day to play!

✽ Brasil is full of free stuff!

At Ajuda SL Brasil you’ll find a whole building of freebies for everyone, literally tons of items priced at 0L – donated by different designers across the grid and I took a look down there today to see if there was anything my speed!  I found that one of my faves, Petite Mort has a few things there and picked up this cute Cream Embroidered Peasant Blouse.  Seriously, take a few minutes to check out the freebie building there as I am sure you’ll find something you can use!  This blouse comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those on the system body.

On a side note, this is the last day for the 50% off moving sale at Petite Mort, and these Filthy Acidwash BF Jeans are included in the sale.

✽ Flowers In Your Hair

I came across a new to me store this weekend called Aseriz and they have a couple of cute accessory group gifts with a 5L group join fee.  I picked up The Chamomile Hair Wreath and Bracelet Set, which was one of the group gifts, and it paired perfectly with my flower child look.  These items are not resize, however you can move them around with edit, and they happened to be a good fit on me.

✽ Put A Ring On It

One last place to visit to complete this free look!  Elle Boutique is where you’ll find the Bella Bento Ring as a free hunt prize for Enchantment!

Key to My Heart

Key to My Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Readers!

Oh, I’m all hearts and candy today, happily batting my eyelashes and being flouncy.   I’m feeling the love, what can I say?  My pretty little outfit is helping the cause as well, so read on to find out how you can grab it too!

Heart Eyes

Belle Epoque has a mini hunt going on!  The creator, Janire Coba, has created 15 beautiful items for V-Day, all priced at just 10L each.  So search high and low for these gorgeous creations, because they’re totally worth it!  I found item number 11, which is this flirty little dress festooned with heart-shaped locks and keys. The dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   So so sweet!  You’d better hurry down to Belle Epoque though, because the hunt will end on the 18th of February! Oh and by the way, here’s a handy little pic of all the prizes:

Pizza is My Boyfriend

Pizza is My Boyfriend
Oh hello there Fab Free’rs. Don’t mind me. I’m just here in my new favorite lingerie enjoying some alone time with my new beau, this gorgeous heart-shaped pizza. Who needs a boyfriend when you can have an amazing dish like this?! It looks good. It tastes good, and it will never leave me unsatisfied. I’m in love! The lingerie by Decoy and the pizza by Lost Junction are both prizes from the XOXO hunt.

To get the prizes in this hunt, there’s a FREE XOXO hunt hud that will teleport you from place to place. Once you’re there, and you see the XOXO hunt sign and the little gift box type “xoxo” in open chat. If the fates align (or something like that) you may be sent the gift for FREE, or it could tell you to come back tomorrow. Don’t want to wait? You can also purchase the XOXO hunt gifts for 50 linden at each location.

The Lingerie – This very detailed lingerie is the XOXO Hunt prize at Decoy. The top part of the harness, the bottom part of the harness, the panties, and the bra can all be worn separately.  This FREE or 50 linden prize fits the Maitreya Lara body only.

X’s and O’s

X's and O's

Hey again my little Fab Free Peeps!

There are so many awesome freebies out there right now, and you know the Fab Free crew is just itching to show you all the goodies that are strewn about the grid!  I’ve got some more news today about a cute free top and some free hair that I picked up on the XOXO hunt, which is perfect for days when you want to show off.  And seriously, that should be every day!

Ex’s and Oh’s…

I’ve been trying my luck on the XOXO hunt.  It’s a fairly simple concept – you tp to the location, find the box (they’re not that hard to find, I promise), and then in local chat, type “XOXO”.  If the box feels you’re being romantic enough, it will gift you something fancy for free!  If not, well you have the choice of buying the prize for 50L or to come back in 24 hours and try all over again!  You can grab the handy-dandy HUD on Marketplace to preview the prizes and help with teleporting from location to location.  I got lucky at both KoKoLoReS and Bodhi!

The top I’m wearing from Bodhi is a very hot, off the shoulders number which makes me want to make horrible puns about giving people the cold shoulder.  I promise I won’t.  It’s really pretty though, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Isis

I also picked up this sleek and yet voluminous hairdo from KoKoLoReS.  It comes in several different shades, in my favourite colours: all fades where the ends of the hair are gorgeous shades of pink or blonde.  I of course went my signature dark with pink tips!  Best of all, both these prizes were completely free!

The XOXO hunt runs until February 18th, so hustle!

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

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

A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!
