The Outlet Hunt @ Princess Stuff!

Princess Stuff Hunt I

I have some fun prizes from Princess Stuff to show you today. Everything I am wearing and showing today comes from their Outlet Hunt, which is currently taking place at the Princess Stuff Outlet. If you can’t get there directly, just take the teleport panel from the main landing to the outlet. The hunt is only going on until September 30th, so you have about 6 more days to do it. I will list all the details about the price and sizing information for each item I am featuring from the hunt below!

Just note the following guidelines for this hunt:

  • 8 of the hunt prizes are open for everyone to get. For those prizes, you are looking for orange pumpkins that cost 0-3L each.
  • The other 8 hunt prizes are exclusives for Princess Stuff group members. You are looking for a little ghost as the hunt prize. For the group-only hunt prizes, joust touch the ghosts with your group tag active and it will send to you at no additional cost. Their group currently costs 88 Lindens to join.

On Me!

First off, let’s cover our favourite topic- FASHION! The clothes and shoes I have on are from the hunt, and here’s the details about what I’m wearing.

  • The purple dress with lace and bell sleeves is a lovely prize on the hunt. It fits Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Hourglass, Physique, Altamura, and eBODY Classic & Curvy. This prize is only 3L for everyone to get. You will find it in one of the orange pumpkins in the outlet.
  • The gold and purple heels I am wearing are sized for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. These cost only 3L and everyone can grab them in one of the pumpkins! Look further down in this post to see a close-up shot of the “Attention Please” heels.

The Decor

Early Fall

Early Fall

Yessss… I know.  I KNOW.  It’s not Fall yet.  I know.  Don’t @ me.  But… I mean, it’s the best season.  At least in my humble opinion.  There have been a few events cropping up over the grid that seem to signal that I’m not the only one looking forward to crisp temperatures and leaves crunching underfoot.

Autumn is Coming!

Over at the Wonderland Beach sim, things are looking decidedly Autumnal and slightly spooky too.  They’ve got The Autumn is Coming Event going on and it really did put me in the mood for a hint of pumpkin spice.  If you wander around the event, you’ll find that each stall has a free treasure chest hidden (or not so hidden) within, and there are also a few lying around the sim with trivia questions that need answering.  No need to join a group, just click on the chest and the contents are yours!  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE outfit from Emerald Couture sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus
  • FREE bench from Kim’s Kreations
  • FREE grass from Lunaria (with animated and static versions)

Here’s to the changing seasons,

Support Raindale

Raindale

Well, I’ve finally taken a break from the FabFree anniversary posts, but I imagine it will be a short one. I had to get a word (or many words) in about what is going on at Raindale this month. This is a long one, so grab a tea and come sit.

What’s up?

Raindale released information to their group members earlier this month that there’s going to be a lot of changes happening in their store. Due to unfortunate circumstances and political issues that I will not go into detail about here, the creator has not been able to withdraw funds from their SL account to real life. While the designer was able to make a living off creating products in SL previously, this is no longer possible due to this issue. As a result, Keira Raindale has decided to scale down their store and turn their business into more of a hobby. The store is not closing, but at least half of the products at the store are retiring. Raindale is going to transition their store to focus on creative projects and “fantasy and whimsical items” in the future. The creator described this transition as “more of a fresh start, as it will benefit everyone, with more gifts, affordable products and charity projects”. If you would like more information, you can find a detailed notecard about the store’s transition in the Raindale group notices.

Please try to support this creator in any way you can. There may not be much we can do, but we can show our support and let Raindale know how much we appreciate their beautiful creations. Right now, Raindale has a number of awesome things going on which you can go do to show support for the creator and I’ll walk you through them now.

Retirement Sale

Raindale is having the biggest sale in their history until August 6th. All products are discounted 20% off in the store and retiring items are reduced up to 50% off. In August, the store will close for renovations after the retirement sale is over. This is what Raindale states about the sale in the group notices:

“Over half of the products will be gone soon! The outlet will be gone too – get those old products while you can! Since SL is now just a hobby, I’m getting rid of most of the “modern” and older items, and going to focus on fantasy and whimsical stuff in the future. The store will be closed for renovation in August! Some retired products may return in some shape or form, but it’s not guaranteed! And some unmarked products may be gone too, so get anything you need till the sale is over!”

So stock up while you can, because a lot of these items will be gone for good very soon!

250L Store Credit for Raindale Group Members

You can show Raindale support by joining their group. Group members of the Raindale group will receive 250L store credits until the end of July. The VIP group currently costs 250L to join, but it is so worth the join fee, and you will see why as I show you all the great things you could buy with the store credits and the wonderful gifts they have available at the shop. Raindale group members also receive 15% back from their purchases in store credit.

Get it Before It’s Gone

In the decor scene shown at the top of my post, I am showcasing an amazing house that can be purchased with the 250L store credit at the retirement sale. The beautiful “Gracewoods Teahouse” is the building in the centre. This was previously from the Gracewoods gacha, and it was a “rare” item. The house now costs 160L on the retirement sale for the copy version, leaving you with some additional credit to spend at the store. You can find the teahouse in the Raindale Outlet. The Outlet will be closing when this huge sale is over in August, so this is your last chance to get items like this and anything else in the Outlet. Any items marked with a “Final Sale” tag at the Raindale mainstore are also retiring and may not re-appear ever again. If you want them, now is your time!

Wanderlust Weekend

The pretty water fountain shown in my picture at the top is Raindale‘s current offering for Wanderlust Weekend. You can get 3 colours of this fountain -white, pink and mint- for only 50L on the sale for a limited time. The fountains come with sound on or off versions and the sounds are very relaxing. This has been out for a couple weeks, so grab it while you can at an amazing price!

Raindale Group Gifts

There is also a huge wall of past group gifts out for Raindale group members. I have added some of those group gifts into my teahouse and garden scene, including:

  • The canopy tent with pillows, which you can see next to the house on the grass.
  • The grasses with fairy lights are a group gift. Inside the package, two sets of grasses are included. This was a past hunt prize but it’s now up on the group gift wall.
  • The ladder with lights, which is resting against the side of the house, is another group gift.
  • The room divider inside the teahouse is from a past holiday gift.
  • The table spread with tea cups, cakes, macarons, candles and flowers, which I placed inside the teahouse, are still available for Raindale group members. This entire set comes from the package called “5th Anniversary Gifts”, a past group gift at the store. I thought the tea set matched the teahouse theme perfectly! ☕

Raindale III

June Group Gift

The June group gift at Raindale for VIP members is an exclusive summer collection available for a limited time, which you can see in my photo below. It’s amazing. The collection includes the octopus pouf, the beach ball, the coconut cocktail, the stool, the torches, the swim ring, and the board. 5 signs, including this “Summer Time” one are included. This set is so cute! This collection will not be available after the gift is gone and it is an exclusive made only for Raindale group members. This gift will be available until the end of July. The creator was so kind that she kept it out an extra month longer.

Raindale

Finally, don’t forget that Raindale is also participating in FabFree at Fifteen the items they have available for the event are absolutely amazing as well. Aline blogged all of those free gifts and promotions earlier this month HERE. Make sure you check out Aline’s post, see all the good deals available, and show your support for the store!

Thanks for reading.

Summer Camping

Summer Camping

Hey FabFree, you are all invited to my campsite to come camping (or glamping?). We’re going to have an amazing time. It’s time to unwind and get ou the old sleeping bag, drink lots of adult beverages, and have a relaxing time summer camping trip.

The Summer Camp Hunt

This summer marks the first Summer Camp Hunt by Malus Park Events and Hunts. Like all of the Malus Park hunts, it takes place at the Malus Park sim, which is located here. The hunt object you are looking for is a sleeping bag, and they are colour-coded by the designer. You’ll see the colour you are looking for on the board at the front of the sim. Each prize costs less than 10L on the hunt. All of the prizes on this hunt are themed around camping! You can see a list of the participating stores and hunt prize previews here. The hunt ends on August 14th.

Summer Camping V

In my camping scene, I am showing the prizes from Splintered Creations. They have 9 hunt prizes in total that cost 10L each. All of the big trees, the large yellow tent, the picnic table, the ice tub, and white adirondack chairs are some examples of the prizes they are offering. I am showing 5 of the prizes in the panoramic shot of my campsite, so reference the credits below for the details of what is featured in my campground. I just couldn’t fit them all into one post! It’s a massive set of camping decor and scenery. It even includes a yeti with large trees as one hunt prize (which was way too big to fit into my picture). This is an absolutely enormous camping scene you can create with this set, so if you are in need of items to build a camping site, this is perfect. Here’s the hunt hints to find all of the prizes from Splintered Creations on the Summer Camp Hunt:

  1. I’m on top of the grid
  2. Awesome sponsors and designers
  3. Nothing like being curled up by a warm fire
  4. What a beautiful covered bridge
  5. Seeking REFUGE by the water
  6. What an amazing, yet DETERMINED green apple
  7. Nachos, Snow Cones, and Cotton Candy Oh My!
  8. In the cemetery at the gate
  9. What a beautiful Rustic look

Camping Gear Brought to You by FabFree at Fifteen

I also added a whole bunch of camping gear and outdoor decor to my campground from FabFree at Fifteen, from the designers Kim’s Kreations and Dench Designs. I love these items and they fit the summer camping theme perfectly, so I had to show them off!

Kim’s Kreations

Summer Camping II

  • The free gift from Kim’s Kreations for FabFree group members is the floor blanket with string lights and lanterns. The blanket includes cuddle animations.
  • Their 15L sale item is the pretty white and blue garden bench, which has cute sitting animations!
  • Their full-priced item is the big blue tent and sleeping bag (see the panoramic shot of the campsite at the top of the post). It costs 99L, and you can actually sleep inside the bag and sit inside the tent!

Dench Designs

Summer Camping III

  • Dench Designs is offering this table with all of the accessories – including the animesh dog, wine bottles, the red beer case, candles, coffee cups, matches, coffee pot, and the wicker basket – as their free gift to FabFree group members. Just use the menu on the table to rezz each item and then you can move them wherever you like. The golden lab is my favourite part!
  • For 15L, you can have the awesome camo-patterned chair that matches the table.

Summer Camping IV

  • Dench Designs‘ full-priced item is this log, campfire, and the pretty tree on the right. The log includes fun bento animations that allow you and your friends to interact with the fire pit! It costs 150L.

Enjoy your camping!

Wrap me in Bows

071422 - Wrap me in Bows 01

FabFree @ Fifteen Continues…

Today I am bringing two items from Fabulously Free’s Birthday Event. The first is this beautiful set of bow jewelry that I am wearing and the second is the cheerful flower field I’m standing in. And now that I’ve called them “first” and “second” I’m going to confuse you and talk about the second one first! Dr. Seuss is in the house.

  • .Lunaria. is the location for this fun little tulip field. It is there fabulous FREE gift for FabFree at Fifteen. The gift comes with both a static and animated version. It is all mesh, copy/mod and only 1 Li at its given size. Don’t forget your FabFree group tag to get it!
  • The bow jewelry that I am wearing are all from Beloved Jewelry by Kimbra McMillan. If you have never seen Beloved Jewelry, you are in for a treat. The amount of detail and customization options that go into her work is incredible. Let me break these down for you:
    • The spine piercings are actually part of the Miix 69L Sale, and are at her mainstore. I added them because I thought they would really finish the look. It fits Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink and comes in large and small versions.
    • The earrings are the L$15 item for FabFree @ Fifteen and unrigged. They come in two sizes and two versions. I should add you can change the metal and gem textures with one HUD and the tint/color of the bows with another on all these jewelry items.

071422 - Wrap me in Bows 02

  • Two more…
    • The choker is the discounted exclusive item, and only L$25!!! It is unrigged and comes with two sizes each in two different versions.
    • Finally, the FREE item is a set of these darling hair clips, again unrigged and in two versions. Check out the one I’m wearing here:
