Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

A Hunting We Will Go

A Hunting We Will Go

When Easter falls early in the year, I get a bit let down to tell you the truth.  In my part of the world, it’s still all grey and slushy and I’m surrounded by general grossness.  When you think of Easter, you think of blossoms dripping from the trees, and being able to go out without a toque and mukluks (ha!).  However, I’m in chillsville.  In SL, however, I’ve come over all rosy and have found a cute little sweater and knickers combo that is great for lounging about while waiting for the Easter bunny to visit!

Hunting Basket Goodies

In my travels through the grid, I came across a mini hunt that’s taking place at Tatiko.  There are five eggs to find, each one containing a pretty little gift.  Search high and low, and pay 1L for each item.  I decided to pair this bunny adorned sweater with the lingerie I also hunted down for 1L at Tatiko.  What will you find there?

Sizes

  • Curvy (Top Only)
  • Fine (Top Only)
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (Knickers Only)

Oeuf Course!

Pardon my horrible French pun above (I can’t stop myself sometimes), but I have found lovely little eggy earrings to go with my Easter look.  I picked these up the other day while at Sorbet, and I must say they please me no end.  You can pick them up too by joining the group for 25L.  There are several other gifts available, including the dress I posted the other day.

Hoppy Easter, my friends!

Ok, But First… Coffee

Ok, But First... Coffee

Morning Fabulouses!  Yeah… I can’t do anything before coffee…  Coffee always comes first, and a chocolate pastry never hurts either.  My springy look today is put together with two free hunt items by Poeme, and a group gift and a 60L special by Siss Boom.

Dressed by Siss Boom

At Siss Boom you’ll find these High Waisted Jeans in a dark and medium denim as a free group gift for being a part of their VIP group.  This group will cost you 500L to join, but there are currently 28 really nice group gifts to obtain with this membership making it well worth the fee.   These jeans are omega appliers, so they work fabulously under longer tops like the one I am wearing or jackets.

The lacy top you see me wearing today is also available at Siss Boom, and is currently on sale for 60L until Wednesday as a limited time offer.  It comes in the sizes listed below and also includes a rose which you can add to the chest.  I of course missed it completely and noticed it after I took the photo, but it’s cute with or without ;).

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody

Accessorize at Poeme

Poeme has 6 pastel easter eggs hidden in the gardens outside their shops for The FREE Dozen Good Eggs Hunt that just started yesterday! In two of the eggs, you’ll find the Mandala Turquoise Earrings and Mandala Teal Flats which accessorized my outfit today!  The Flats include Maitreya, Slink and an unrigged version.  Grab the Hunt HUD while you are there to TP to other shops participating in this fabulous free Easter Hunt with six prizes in each store!

Have a great Monday!

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 03/24/2018 – Zuri

Zuri Entrance
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! So I will just come right out and admit it, I completely dropped the ball on this week’s Designer Friday post. However, do not let that deter you from all the fabulous shopping at Zuri. This enormous jewelry store is a jewelry lovers paradise. Zuri has everything your bejeweled heart could desire. There are items for men as well as the ladies, and even couples items like wedding bands. There are also many gifts, sales, and other offers happening all over this 3 story jewelry store! At the entrance shown above, you can get your first FREE gift from Zuri by joining their subscriber.
Zuri Gifts and Offers
As you head inside the Zuri main store you can follow the pink footprints to some Steals & Deals along with Midnight Mania boards and other awesome discounts. First however, you’ll want to make a pit-stop at the Zuri circulation desk. Not only can you pick up the info you need about an Easter hunt happening in the store, there are a hand full of gifts waiting to be picked up. The Zuri in world group has a one time join fee of 299 linden. This grants you instant access to the several group gifts, the group Midnight Mania, shopping discounts and much more. There’s even a board at the circulation desk that will give you a note card about all the group perks.

On the wall near/behind the circulation desk is also where you’ll find the Zuri exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. To get this FREE gift you just need to wear your Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. The fun doesn’t stop there, you’ll find a little area on the first floor with the currently available Zuri group gifts. From there you’ll definitely want to explore the second floor.
Zuri Get Lucky
On the second floor of the Zuri Jewelry store you’ll find more dazzling goodness. I spotted two Lucky Chairs, and a yummy looking Lucky Dip. Each of these offers a lovely jewelry prize. I would even consider the Lucky Chair prizes to be unisex. There is also a third floor of Zuri Jewelry to explore. You will definitely want to check that out, there is a cool little observatory up there as well. Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for those Easter eggs! Happy Shopping Fab Free!

The Call of Spring

The Call of Spring

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower, 
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths; 
And ’tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes. 

Sorbet Spring

We are coming close to the end of March, and I’m hoping that the above staves will help bring forth the warmth and renewal we all crave.  I’m just sitting in my green bower, listening to the sounds of spring that are all around me.  I found the perfect dress to lead me into sunnier climes!  I found my way to Sorbet, where there are several group gifts to be had.  I paid 25L to join the group and got this lovely dress.  It brings me a thrill of pleasure, just as Spring did to William Wordsworth when he wrote the above poem (though he did get a bit sad about the state of man, but that’s another topic entirely…).  The Robe Plisée Framboise (oooh) comes in sizes XS, S, and M with an Alpha layer.

Details

My necklace today was another fantastic gift I picked up at Pure Poison, who as I mentioned HERE are really a treasure trove of gifts.  Join the group for free to pick up this lovely necklace (and get yourself loads of other stuff too while you’re there!).   Wheeee!
I hope Spring is sneaking up on you too, wherever you are.

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

It’s the first day of Spring, apparently.  Tell that to my boots and parka.  They still cling to me, desperately trying to fend off the cold North wind.  So, I hopped into SL and got down and dirty with some gardening.  And by down and dirty, I mean I pulled some plants out of my inventory and admired my hard work from a lovely bench in the sun with my cup of tea.  That’s my type of gardening!

A Whole Look…

I found a whole look today for free!  I stopped by Designer Circle: The Event and happily, it was their anniversary!  To celebrate, they have a ton of free gifts there.  I picked up the gift at Stormcrow Designs, and it contained a skirt, top, shoes, glasses and a bag.  I went with the top, skirt and shoes, and was quite pleased!  The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Pretty, right?

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Isis (Skirt Only)
  • Freya (Skirt Only)
  • Venus (Skirt Only)

More Hair!

I also picked up free hair at Designer Circle, this sideswept braid by Posh Couture is really nice, and I love the height I’m getting off it!  It comes with an HUD of natural shades ranging from blonde all the way to black.  I think you can go either dressy or casual with this one and it will always look great.

Opalescence

My fave find at Designer Circle are the accessories I picked up at the Graffiwear booth.  I absolutely love opals – and this necklace/earring/ring combo is no exception.  I’ve always enjoyed the shiny, holographic nature of this stone, and I really love this set!  Grab it for free!

Ah, time for another cup of tea, I think!

Take Your Demon to the Beach

Beach Imp
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been a few days since my last post, and I am happy to finally get some much needed down time.  As part of said down time, we have all heard of “Take Your Daughter to Work Day”, well I am advocating “Take Your Favorite Demon to the Beach Day” or the pool. The pool will work too. Demons are optional, but if they are anything like Pru, they are worth the effort! That said, I came across a couple of FREE group gifts at the XXX Event that are “Beach Day” worthy. On a little side note, please keep in mind that as the name would suggest this is an Adult themed event.

The Swimsuit – The unique anchor print swimsuit Pru is wearing is a FREE XXX Event group gift by Adri’s King. The XXX Event group is FREE to join, and several vendors have gifts out this round. The Adri’s King swimsuit gift comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, head over to the XXX Event, join the group and click the gift waiting for you at the Adri’s King booth.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Collar – The cute “kitty” style collar Pru has on is the XXX Event gift by NYNE. This FREE gift comes with 8 color options in a color change hud. This gift (like all the gifts at the XXX Event) will require the XXX Event group tag. As I mentioned before the group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Horns – . a i s l i n g  Sylochka -Obsidian- *Older Gacha Item

Hair – Magika Written

Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

SkinEssences  – Amber (Catwa & Omega) – Currently @Kustom9

The Wearin’ O’ The Green

Wearin' o' the Green

Irish is in My DNA

You know those TV commercials where people talk about their DNA test results? Well, mine shows that I’m more than a quarter Irish. So, St. Patrick’s Day is kind of a big deal in my house, and as you can see, I did a little celebrating last night at Hunny’s Pub. :mrgreen:

And my outfit? I didn’t spend a single Linden, thanks to amazing gifts from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I was able to find a dress, hair, necklace, makeup, and nails… all for FREE!

Oh, and I skipped the pint of Guinness because Hunny’s was serving a special St. Patrick’s Day cocktail that I’ll tell you about below (also free).

Luck of the Irish?

Not really, but I’m sure it doesn’t hurt. This isn’t a difficult hunt, but I’ll admit that some of the gifts are really well hidden!

The Hair

FABIA Mesh Hair set out this sexy, mussed ‘do as their St. Patrick’s Day Hunt gift. Adriana comes in a fatpack of colors and includes an alpha.

The Necklace

I love this shamrock necklace from Violetility, especially the Celtic-inspired design. The Leprechaun Necklace comes in one size and does not include a resizer, but it is modifiable so you can right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

The Dress

My dress was the gift from Decoy. The Lillie Dress comes in grass green, as well as the shamrocks version that I’m wearing. It is sized for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass mesh bodies.

The Makeup & Nails

I stopped at LIVIA to grab their gift: the Envy Eyeshadow & Nail Appliers. 3 different eyeshadows are included, with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Omega, and tattoo layers for classic avatars.

The nails include 5 different designs for hands and feet, with appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Vista, and Omega-enabled Bento hands.

LIVIA // Envy Eyeshadow & Nails GIFT

The Drink

No St. Patrick’s Day party is complete without an adult beverage, right? And thankfully, ChicChica was serving up exactly what I needed. The St. Patrick’s Day Special Cocktail comes with a sprig of mint and a lucky four-leaf clover charm on the straw. Just what you need to quench your virtual thirst! 😀

About The Hunt

The Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt will continue through 24 March 2018. Each store has a free hunt item as well as a special discounted item for sale.

Click HERE for a list of stores and hints, or join the Finders, Keepers Hunt Events in-world group to grab the hunt HUD, as well as a few extra gifts. 🙂

Sláinte!

A Quest for Treasure

A Quest for Treasure

Hey Hey Fab Free!

The weekend may be winding down, and the snow may still be swirling in my part of the world, but my mind is fixed with laser-like precision on spring, warmth and all things connected therein. What can I say, at least I’m consistent.  I found a treasure trove of goodies for you, so read on!

The Quest Continues…

Did you manage to take part in the Flawless Game Show Quest yet?  There’s one day left to partake in this fun game, where you TP to a bunch of stores, answer some questions and at the end you get all sorts of goodies!  I showed you some other gifts I received here.  The whole thing took me about 45 minutes, so it’s well worth it.  Today, I’m showing off the Orquidea Still Summer dress – which is a gorgeous hue of turquoise dappled with sea birds.  It just makes me happy.  It comes in sizes XXS-L with an Alpha layer!  Oh and…psssst….it’s free!

Piles of Presents

So, have you been to Pure Poison?  I’ve been a fan of their shoes for quite some time, picking up their stuff at events.  I hadn’t been to the store though (weird, I know), and nipped in out of curiosity the other day.  Holy mackarel guys – there is quite literally an Alladin’s cave of gifts hiding in there, and they’re all FREE.  There are two group gifts in the front entrance area, one that Astrid showed back in December here, and the other that I’m wearing on my tootsies today!  You can wear the shoes and socks separate if you prefer!  They come sized for Isis, Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass feet.  Don’t just stop there though…. head into the gacha area and take a look at the machines – loads of them have the words “group gift” printed on them, as well as there being a giant wall full of accessories – the bangles and necklace I’m wearing today are two of the finds I came across.  You’ll be accessorizing forever!  You can join the Pure Poison group for free – hop to it!

Phew.  I’m getting a little overexcited!  I hope you all enjoy!
