Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

CasualFun3

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service :) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

CasualFun4

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

CasualFun2

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area :) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

Topsy Turvy

Hello and happy Friday, my FabFree Dears! I’m getting ready for the weekend by going completely casual! Well… I’m getting ready for a casual weekend in SL… in RL not so much….

topsyTurvy_001

ANY way…  let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started my casual Friday with these cute shorts from WallFlower. The ‘Daisy Denim’ shorts are part of the Beached Bunny Hunt and are a great 1L prize. Nice and versital. They come in system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Omega. It’s always good to see well done system layer items! On top, I have a cute lace side tie top from ‘New to me’ designer: Lowkey Shawty. The Knotted top is a dollarbie on Lowkey’s Marketplace page but there are many cute things in the main store too.

 

topsyTurvy_003

On top.. too or would that be two….  I have another fab design from our own FabFree Designer, More than Ever! The Blue Tie Dye tee is part of the Summer Hunt 2015 on the Flawless Sim. Each of the prizes is between 10 and 15L which sounds like a lot till you see the prizes. There are kiosks set up on the corners of the Sim displaying all the prizes from the shops so you can pick which prizes you want to hunt for. And trust me… you will want a bunch of them!

The 1L Beached Bunny Hunt runs until July 31st and the Summer Hunt runs until July 26th so Happy Hunting and have a great weekend!

Silver Fey

Hello again FabFree folks! It’s official… I am totally addicted to Gachas. Sad, but true. SO when I saw a ‘new to me’ gacha event I grabbed my Lindens and hurried over.

gacha_001

The “Oh My Gacha” event is full of all kinds of tempting machines to play but I fell in love with these Dragonfly wings from Sn@tch and knew I needed to build a fairy outfit around them. The wings are just 35L per play so I stocked up.  Then I found the “Jocelyn” hair from Alice Project, one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. And at 75L per play I was ready to go wild with sixteen different packs to win.  Cila is finishing off my fairy day with the ‘Doris – Lace Princess’ corselets and skirts for 75L per play. These are Fitmesh so you don’t have to play only your size but be sure to pick up the Alpha set at the machine for free.

Oh My Gacha is a great event with a ton of machines to play. Decore, pets and quite a few unisex and men’s items can all be found there. But hurry… it only runs till July 31st!  Your taxi to – OMG- Oh My Gacha

Lets Play Hooky!

new713-1

Man, another Monday?  Lets all play hooky and hit the beach!  There is no better reason than this sweet, windswept hair from the geniuses at Truth.  The Essena Hair is free in the subscriber, and you get the complete fatpack.  I love the soft curls and finger combed look.

On the way to the beach, I swung into Kendrasy Creations to pick up this adorable mesh Aztec top.  It is free in store, and includes 5 mesh sizes.  The texturing is top notch,  and the mesh moves perfectly with your body.

Also on Moira is the subscriber gift from Amala.  They are giving out a beautiful 4 necklace set just for joining the subscriber list.  And the best part about subscribers? It doesn’t take up a group slot, and you get to keep up with great creators!

new713-2

What is a day at the beach without a great campsite to plop down at, have a few drinks and as many nachos that will fit in your tummy?  I found this awesome wearable beach set from The Black Forest on MarketPlace for only 10L.  No need to rez, just attach, and you can plop down anywhere and have yourself a siesta.   Nothing makes the work week fly by like so many margaritas!  It is available in a few different styles, so make sure to shop the store.

Here is to a wonderful week!

Love,

Moi

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [1]

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!

***************

Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

Retail Therapy Begins with Ice Cream

Demons Eat Ice Cream

Even a devil with horns and a tail needs to beat the heat this summer. What better way to cool off than with some delicious ice cream?! Label Motion recently sent out this fun summery ice cream treat to their subscribo members. The mesh ice cream cone comes in 4 variations, each with a right or left hold pose. Join the subscribo at Label Motion to get this FREE gift. You might have to check the history.

Always on the lookout for cute outfits, I came across this strapless top and shorts outfit by Entice at the Retail Therapy Event. I love the vibrant shade of lemon yellow in this top. I’m often drawn to yellow lately, maybe because it reminds me of things I enjoy like citrus and sunshine. The outfit is fully mesh and comes in standard sizes with alpha layers for just 75 lindens. Don’t forget to check out the other great deals from Entice and a slew of other participating stores at Retail Therapy.

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

PicMonkey Collage

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.

Candy Girl

Hello again, my sweet FabFree Folks! Today I’m all about candy!  You guessed it! The Candy Fair is open and in full swing and there are some super sweet gachas to be had.

candy_001

This is the ‘Candy Top and Skirt’ set in Sky from the ‘Sweet Candy Look’ gacha by Dami. This set is a little different in that the top and the skirt are one piece. But that makes for easy dressing and it is nice to get a set for the price of one play.  My handful of balloons are from the Dami gacha as well. They come in this shades of pink set and a rainbow colored set too.  Even my choker is from the Dami gacha. Can you tell I really liked that machine? ;)

I also spent some time with  [CX] gacha for these cute ‘Mallow Horns’. I love horns an antlers and I have a pretty big collection. But these are too cute to miss and so unusual. And at only 50L per play you can’t go wrong.

The Candy Fair only runs until July 17th so don’t delay! Your taxi to the Candy Fair!
