Hitting The Books

Snapshot_006
It’s back to school time again!  The time of year when most kids sulk that their summer fun and sleep in days are over, but parents jump for joy!  As a Mom (and with a risk of dating myself :/), usually I jump for joy…  however this year I have one headed off to post secondary school away from home.  What a bittersweet experience that is!

Anyways, speaking of back to school…  Three are just a few more days left in the FabFree Back To School Photo Challenge!  Of course I can’t participate in the sweet linden prizes, but I wanted to participate in the challenge itself – just for the fun!

I put my cool back to school look together with some of the pieces of the 23 piece Sn@tch The Wanderer  7 Seas Fishing Prize, wearing the Jolie Skater Skirt, Ribbed Sweater and Wanderer Necklace.

Urban

Greetings FabFree Readers.
urban

Welcome to the weekend at last. Time to get into something more casual and go explore our virtual world. I found this stylish outfit for free at Prism for Men as the August Group Gift. This is the ‘Jeremy’ jacket, shirt and pants set. The jacket and shirt are one piece while the dark jeans are separate. The jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and the jacket/shirt is sized at S-L with two FitMesh versions. Along with two alpha layers versions, everyone should be able to find their proper fit. I found this outfit to be perfect for wandering our more urban corners of the Grid.

August is nearly finished so hurry to Prism for Men and pick up your free group gift soon.
I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

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!

Gone Country

Gone Country

Gizza has long been a great place to pick up quality FREE gifts for men and women alike. If you haven’t stopped by yet to pick up the August group gifts this month, you really should. Love showed you the ladies gift [here] and there is a matching men’s outfit you can pick up as well.

But that’s not all. Gizza also has put out this fantastic men’s denim jacket as a FREE gift for L’Homme Magazine readers. The group is FREE to join, and so if you don your tag you can pick up this mesh jacket in all the standard sizes plus a fitmesh size without spending a single linden. It has a great feel to it that can cross from modern to country to hipster, depending upon your setting or what you pair it with. It’s an all around great find.

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?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

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…

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – [Mello] Beyond Stars – ALLTHECOLORS❤ – FREE Gift
