Dream a Summer Dream

Dream a Summer Dream

Sometimes we need to recharge… take a moment to close our eyes and dream. I found the perfect sim for it if you like art and books. You might want to stop by the Arts and Literary Salon where there is book discussions and art displays for you to enjoy.

I took the chance to put together a dreamy summer look while I enjoyed one of the blankets under a charming little tree I found. My look is courtesy of Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning.

First, I picked up the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that Wicca’s Wardrobe is generously contributing to this hunt as a prize. It is this lovely strawberry dress in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The box also includes two texture patterns of the dress, so you get not only the dress I am showing, but one additional pattern. And only 1L for all of this strawberry goodness!

I was pleased to discover that the August group gift at Wicca’s Wardrobe was a sexy pair of boots that matched the dress quite nicely. These over the knee dragon boots come in standard mesh as well as slink fits. To get them to fit my Maitreya body, I simply removed my feet. They are highly detailed, and there is a male version of the boots out for group members as well. If you are not already a member, the group fee is 50L, but you get access to many past group gifts as well as these fantastic boots, making it well worth your join fee.

I’m off for a nap and a dream. Enjoy your day!

Hibiscus Morning

Hello hello, FabFree!

Hibiscus Morning

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is on and I am almost overwhelmed with all of the great prizes the designers have turned in this time. It was really hard to pick what I wanted to show off first! But I guess that’s kind of a cool problem to have.:)

I picked this super cute shorts and top set from LOo LOo and Platypus, one because the store name kills me and two because I love this set. This is the ‘Hibiscus’ shorts and top set and you can pick it up for 1 little linden.  Each piece is separate and comes with a good alpha layer. Each piece comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and they also come with appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.  Not only do you get the clothes, you also get the pretty red flower for your hair.  Just a perfect look for a morning stroll on the beach with a friend, don’t ya think?

I also wanted to show off my cute sneakers from one of my ‘go -to’ designers: More than Ever.  These are the ‘Wildflower Low Tops’ and they are the current in-store gacha. You can find eighteen commons in every color imaginable and three Rares with a little friend on them. At 50L per play you can fill up your closet. The sneakers come with a good alpha and fit my SLink flat Feet beautifully.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs all of this August but you won’t want to wait to hunt down some seriously cool prizes.

Carnival

Hello and Happy Friday FabFree!

Carnival

I am loving the gothic creepy vibe of the Carnival of Souls Hunt this year. Halloween can’t come soon enough for me and this hunt has got me ready for trick or treating in August. Too early? Maybe a little….  anyways…

This is the ‘Raquel’ outfit from Sweet Intoxications and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. That one little linden will get you the top and the pants and the ribbon choker AND the fantastic shoes. Each piece is separate and the choker is resizable for a great fit. The top comes in Fitmesh sizes XS-XL plus Belleza, Maitreya and SLink appliers. The pants come in those same appliers plus an Omega applier and a classic system pants layer. And these shoes! Love ’em.  The shoes are for SLink High Feet.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.

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.

Hermosa

Snapshot_006Happy Friday FabFree!  Today I present you with a tremendous…

HOT FREE SHOE NEWS FLASH!

I super wish I was clever enough to make that flash or something dramatic, but onto the news…

Through Sunday August 7th, The Reign inworld group, which normally has a fee is FREE TO JOIN as a part of their Friends and Family Event.  During this event, the Hermosa V2 Wedges that I am wearing in my post today are available as a free group gift once you activate your tag.  This hot summer inventory staple is compatible with Belleza, Slink, Maitreya and TMP Mid feet and come with a HUGE texture change hud with 40 Reign and Blueberry colours.

Speaking of Blueberry, if you are unfamiliar with them…  They design ladies mesh clothing, and everything I have ever purchased there fits like a glove.  Their prices are very affordable with most things being 199L and they usually have a few group gifts, such as the ones blogged [HERE] and [HERE].  I personally have a ton of Blueberry’s items in my inventory, so I was really excited to see this free gift by Reign that would match them all!

You can find this gift just outside the Reign shop, but don’t be dragging your butt to get down there – This free group join offer is only valid until midnight on August 7th!

Athena

Snapshot_003
Hello Fabulouses!  Recently Phedora released their Athena Heeled Sandals exclusively for the Ferosh: Art & Fashion Fashion Week.  I am sure you can Imagine just by looking at them that the light gold version sold like hotcakes!

As a special treat for their inworld group members, they have put out a special new 8 metallic colour version as a free group gift!  I thought I was seeing things when I saw the ad as I was shocked they were generously gifting several colours, but it is indeed true – the group is currently free to join and you will be able to pick up the entire 8pack of the Athena Sandals after you activate your group tag. {ETA: The group fee has been raised to 350L}
Athena Heels Group Gift!!!
If for some crazy reason that isn’t enough to get you over to Phedora to join the group, you might want to know that there are other gifts too!

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” — Henry David Thoreau

By Walden Pond

There is a Walden Pond Sim remake in Second Life now and I decided to visit it, I recommend you take a look if you haven’t gone yet. There is something deeply healing about the woods and nature in times when we need to reconnect with ourselves and disconnect with the things that make us feel less whole.

I picked out a pretty floral inspired group gift to make my visit with — the July group gift from Morea Style. It is a full “kit and kaboodle” gift with jewelry included. You’ll get the applier jeans and shirt with appliers for just about every mesh body out there (including some I hadn’t heard of), with some pretty flexi touches to make the top and jeans cuffs. The only thing the outfit lacks is shoes but I have you covered there as well. (Don’t worry:) ).

The Morea Style group is a one time fee of 150L but there is a beautiful monthly group gift to make it worth joining. If you hurry, you can pick up the July gift now, and you’ll be set to pick up the August gift when it comes out at the turn of the month.

Pure Poison is offering a new FREE group gacha gift. You need to wear your FREE Group tag and then you’ll get one spin on the group gacha for a chance at a pair of shoes. You’ll find shoes to fit Slink, Maitreya, or TMP in the box. I landed a pair in silver. If you like the shoes enough to want more, you can play the “non gift” gacha for just 50L per spin.

Skater Girl

*yawn* Good Morning, FabFree.

skater Girl_001

It’s way too early here for me but I couldn’t wait any longer to show off this fun free look from a ‘new to me’ designer.  This great bolero type jacket and barely there tank top are from Cranked and they are the free group gifts currently available. The Soja Jacket comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. Plus you get a HUD to change to one of six colors of denim.

The shorty ‘Female Fotball Crop Top’ is also out as a free gift. The top comes with it’s own HUD for a choice of eighteen colors/patterns. You’ll get the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL, FitMesh XS-XL  as well as appliers for Maitreya, SLInk and Belleza. That’s a bunch of choices!

Last but not least are my super nifty skates from Skate World. These are the ‘Roller Skates ATG’ and they are the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. The skates come with a ‘skating’ AO that works very nicely. You can resize the skates via a script but I found I need to really mess with mine to get them right. A little frustrating but worth the effort. Plus you have until September 30 to hunt down all the great prizes. Oh, one quick note before I go… The pose I’m using in my picture is not part of the AO in the skates. That is ‘Derby 2’ from Embody on the marketplace. ( which is down at the moment. I will update when I can)

WoW EmilyC

EmilyC 1Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs, this post has been a long time coming, as those of you who follow my Flickr know, and I apologize for the delay. Real Life has been a little hectic recently. Thanks for understanding. The month of July is quickly coming to an end, so if you haven’t picked up all the July group gifts now is the time! This pretty face is the July group gift at WoW Skins. Also, I wanted to share with you some cute FREE gifts from a shop called EmilyC.

The July group gift at WoW Skins is a generous one. It includes the “Katty” skin in 6 tones with system layers and an Omega applier for each. I was able to use the single Omega applier while wearing my Omega Relay for Maitreya and Catwa to apply the skin to my Maitreya body and my Catwa head at the same time. This means that the Omega applier should work for all Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads as long as you also wear the appropriate Omega relay. There is a one time join fee of 399 lindens, however upon joining you’ll be able to pick up the July group gift along with every previous group gift. Just remember to wear your group tag!

Next, this cute argyle print dress and the platform sandals are just two of several group gifts available at EmilyC. This was a new-to-me shop and they had so many FREE gifts, I thought I’d share my favorites with you. This dress is really cute on, and comes in several fitted sizes. Named the Kaja dress, this gift includes a classic fitmesh size, an Ebody size, Maitreya size, a TMP size, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes. The platform sandals come with a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. With all the size options, there should be one that fits most bodies.
EmilyC 2 If pink is your color, these jeans are for you! Also a FREE group gift at EmilyC, these jeans come in standard mesh and fitmesh sizes, a Slink Physique fit, Slink Hourglass fit, a Maitreya fit, and a Belleza fit. Again, there are tons of size options, even more than with the dress, so honestly they should fit just about anyone. Plus, I think they are pretty cute with just a plain white tee. Lastly, I saw the pink jeans at EmilyC and had to pick up the FREE pink shoes as well! Like the other gift shoes, these platform heels come in TMP, Maitreya, and Slink sizes. As I mentioned previously these cute gifts are just a few of the several gifts available at EmilyC, and the group is FREE to join!

Lastly, I also want to point out that I am wearing the same FREE group gift skin from WoW Skins in both photo sets. I’m also wearing the same mesh head, and using the exact same windlight settings. I think it’s fun to see how slightly different a skin tone can look just by changing from a darker hair color to a lighter one.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
