Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Black_or_White_Hunt_2_-_POSTER_IMAGEIt’s Friday, and that means we have another fun weekend of hunting ahead of us. There are some very nice hunts going on right now. Just check the list (below) and see for  yourself.

In case you haven’t heard, hunting is a fun and rewarding “sport.” Merchants hide gifts in their stores just because they want you to visit. All you have to do is follow hints to find them. You’ll come away with all kinds of free stuff (or nearly free… some hunts charge a L$ or two for each hunt item). Your inventory will soon be stuffed full of clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, etc.

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s go  hunting!

What Were You Doing in 2002?

Snapshot_007I’m back with another dollarbie from the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store!  This time I am wearing the Brighton Bay 2002 Set that includes the mesh shorts, waist sweater and the layered top that can be worn with or without sleeves.  This set is available as a wearable demo (it doesn’t say demo anywhere!), priced at just 3L for the whole  thing.  Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings – there are tons of steals!

ps.  What were you doing in the summer of 2002?  I am pretty sure the highlight of that summer for me was a trip to the beach.

Where To?

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses!  Would you believe I put this outfit together for just 5 little lindens?

I was inspired to put together my travel outfit when I first noticed the Nerdy Duffle with Jumper (available here) in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store for just 3L.  This jacket also includes the shirt and sweater with the jacket for a complete look.  I then added the matching House Slippers and Uniform Skirt that I also found in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store, priced at 1L each!  Voila – 5L :)

Now.. where I am going to go in  my travel outfit – who knows?  I can’t follow a map to save my life.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Hunt For Your Inner Slut 13Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 19.

The top hunt today is the thirteenth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut and this time around it has a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy theme. I’m not sure what that means in terms of sluts but I’m interested to find out!

The Black or White Hunt is back again in the number two spot and the Menstuff Hunt is at number three. Both of these are great hunts. There are plenty of other hunts to check out too. So let’s all go hunting!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

C’est la Monday

C'est la Monday

Hello Fab Free, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a serious Monday! Thankfully, there’s always some retail therapy available in Second Life. I think it’s definitely true that shopping is a form of therapy, even in a virtual setting. I know I feel better when I get to buy new things. hehehe That being said, it’s always better when the stuff you acquire is FREE. **Note Added 1/19/15**Here’s more proof this was a total case of the Monday’s! Somehow I missed that our lovely Julianna had already shown this great jacket, be sure to check out her post here also.  
C'est la Monday 1 This pretty leather jacket from Virtual Diva Couture is their current group gift. I love the sort of dark mauve color of the leather, I think it make the jacket very feminine, while keeping an edgy style. The gift is FREE, you just need to join the Virtual Diva Couture in world group, which is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and a fitted mesh version.

Another super cute group gift are these pretty star hairpins. This gift from C’est la Vie includes several hairpins in gold and two silver versions, each with a different colored star. I really like this gift because cute hair accessories are not something you see often. The gift is FREE to all C’est la Vie group members, and the group is FREE to join as well.

Here’s to a better Monday, Enjoy!

Stardust

Prudence Stardust Hello Fab Free! So not only does this post contain some great finds, it’s also my little Fab Free virtual tribute to the indescribable David Bowie. For a fan such as me, it’s hard to imagine that his time with us is truly over. Another person wrote that they were not sad, but grateful for his time here. I feel much the same way, grateful that I lived when he lived and had the opportunity to see and hear the way he changed the world forever.

Mr. Bowie heavy on my mind, how could I not also think of his iconic persona, Ziggy Stardust. I put together this uber cute outfit with Ziggy Stardust as my inspiration. The possibilities are infinite when trying to put together an outfit, from the flaming red hair and the often theatrical makeup he often wore. I felt this jumper from Stix was well suited to the task. These playful rompers are available at the current round of Oh My Gacha for just 50 lindens per play. In a lot of ways they do remind me of the bodysuits and jumpsuits Ziggy Stardust was known to wear. Each color of these fun rompers includes a system layer, a TMP applier, and an Omega applier.

I have to say I spent quite a bit of time hunting down the perfect something to add to this outfit, the romper from Stix alone just was not enough for me. I found that something in this Blazer from Luas. This mesh blazer has those very structured shoulders that make me think of 1980s divas and of course, David Bowie in his Ziggy style. This blazer from Luas is available on the Marketplace for just 60 lindens per color.

So last but not least, the one piece that makes the look truly a tribute to the late great Bowie, the zig-zag lightening bolt face paint. This really could be no one else. The makeup is FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Avanti. I was thrilled to find it, and even more so when I tried the applier. This FREE Marketplace gift from Avanti includes a system tattoo layer and an Omega applier.

Really and truly I hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
