Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

End of Summer

Hello FabFree!

End of Summer

Summer is winding down now but the days are still hot and I don’t want to wear anything but cool shorts and tops. But you still want to start wearing those soft rustic shades of Fall. That’s why the “Indian Summer” hunt from Ghee is the perfect answer. Ms. Love mentioned this hunt in her post here so I had to go check it out. And I was not disappointed.  You’ll find thirty nine little spice jars hidden all over priced at 10L to 25L.  Now the jars are not numbered but each one is named for a different spice so we can keep track of them. You’ll find tops, dresses, shoes, shorts, jewelry and accessories all in one of three end-of-summer shades.

I picked the “lace trim belted shorts” in ivory and paired them with the ‘Indian Summer blouse’ in taupe and the ‘Indian Summer’ sandals in ivory. The “Swirl” necklace and earrings also come in ivory, taupe and chilli ( a soft rusty red)

The clothing pieces come in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and several pieces come with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink. The sandals all are for SLink flat feet.

You can fill up your spice cabinet and your wardrobe at the Indian Summer Hunt until September 2nd!

If You Are Chilly, Here Take My Sweater

Snapshot_002

Hi there Fabulouses!  It’s a bit drizzly and dismal this week where I am, and I can sure tell that fall is just around the corner.  It’s (unfortunately) time to dig up some warmer clothes, just in case.  I suppose I was following suit in Second Life too, because I remembered when I found a cute summer dress at Starr Fashion a couple of weeks back [HERE]…  There was a sweater/jeans outfit as a free gift as well.  Of course at the time a sweater and jeans seemed silly as the weather was blistering hot so I didn’t pick it up, and went back yesterday to grab it.

The Lenore Jeans are black with blue pockets and come belted.  The off the shoulder Nina shirt is red and is textured in a cozy light knit.  Both items are available in an array of mesh sizes, and also mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink.

The free gift in question at Starr Fashion can be found on the gifts wall near the back close to the midnight mania and mini mania offers.  There are two ways you can obtain this gift…  either by joining the group and touching the vendor or not joining the group and paying 1L that is auto-refunded to you.

Sunday Casual

Sunday Bridges

It’s casual Sunday for me… and though this outfit I picked up as the latest group gift from Tiffany Designs is hardly ordinary, it’s just dressy enough to be called business casual. It includes a pair of slacks and a sweater with a geometric design on it, both in all the standard mesh sizes. You’ll also get a pair of shoes for system feet, though I opted to wear my own in the picture above.

The Tiffany’s group is 100L to join, but after joining you’ll have access to this gift as well as four other past group gifts for men that are still out. You can see two that were previously blogged [Here] and [Here]. So you definitely get your money’s worth. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but that is immediately refunded to you.

Have a great Sunday afternoon!

Mrs. B’s Designs closing sale :(

Hey FabFree.

MsB's

I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world.  But, happily, it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L.  The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.

I hate to see Ms B’s Design close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?

Here’s a little something for merchants. If you’d like to get your store into a hunt, these are the ones that are looking for participants…

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

This May Be Wrong, But It Feels So Right

Snapshot_002Good morning FabFree!  It has been a quiet couple of days on the blog due to many of us Fab Writers having RL issues/excitement, but don’t let that think that you have to take a break from freebie shopping, because there is plenty out there.  Have a peek at our Fabulously Free in SL Scoop.It Page where we scoop up our own posts, but also other offers we haven’t had time to blog… or maybe check out our flickr pool where other bloggers/photographers pop their photos into with under 75L items.  Don’t give up on us here, we’ll be back to our usual freebie posting schedule very soon!

Today I am here to share that This is Wrong has added a new free outfit to their gift wall where you will find that there is a handful of clothing items for women and men that are all priced at 0L for you to enjoy.  The casual Pic Nic Outfit that I am wearing is the latest addition and is a one piece mesh item that comes in Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh body specific sizes.  I didn’t try it with the system body, but I have a feeling it would work just fine by digging out an alpha layer or two from another outfit in your inventory.  I should note that on the back of this shirt is the a large vampire mouth with fangs and while it doesn’t seem like something I would normally wear, it’s actually pretty cool and reminds me of True Blood.  This outfit is way Sookie!

These trendy High Tops were just what I needed to complete my outfit today.  I picked up the GOS Boutique High Tops for free at The Gacha Garden Event and then played the gacha machine @75L per play to apply the colour.  Without the purchased applier they have a text print all over them rendering them a demo pretty much, so I probably wouldn’t have picked them up unless I had intended to play for an applier… which I did!

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

Ain’t Nobody Gonna Steal My Honey!

Snapshot_004It’s a good thing Gizza put out this sneaky peeky camoflauge hunting set out as a free group gift because I had a little investigating to do this evening.  Someone’s been sneaking my honey for weeks!  Of course when I got there and began my investigation, it was clear instantly that there was nothing but Booger Bear fluff and tiny paw prints.  I knew it had to be those rascally little fuzzbutts…  Now to figure out who they belong to….  CALLLEEEEE

You can pick this this one piece (shorts/shirt/jacket) full “Hunter” outfit by Gizza as a free group gift after you have activated your free Gizza inworld group tag.  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh body specific sizes.  There is also a matching men’s outfit available as a free gift if you feel you need to call for back up on your hunting expedition.

As previously mentioned on FabFree, Gizza has an expansive group gift area at the landing point filled with goodies for girls and guys.  If you happen to know any new residents or come in contact with any, this is a good place for them to visit!  These are high quality, well made items and 100% free :)

Here are a couple more examples of gifts available at Gizza:
