Garden Party

Hello again, FabFree Floks. I don’t know about where y’all are but our temperature is somewhere between OMG and WTF. Yeah, it’s hot. And the best thing on a hot day? A huge glass of ice cold sweet iced tea.  If you can’t get that then some Sweet Tea might be the next best thing.

sweettea_001

This is the Summer Mini from Sweet Tea and it one of the group gifts set out for us. The group costs 50L to join but you’ll make that back right away with the eleven gifts available. This cool shorty sundress comes with a HUD with four really cute color/patterns. I picked this aqua blue because it just felt so summery. Plus, it went perfectly with the aqua and white platform sandals for SLink Flat feet from 2pm’s  Raki Ribbon Platforms gacha machine at Kustom9.  The gacha has ten commons in ice cream colors and two rares that are white soles with color HUDs for the straps.  Kustom9 runs until July 10 but don’t delay.. the date will creep up faster than you realize.

Those Hot Summer Nights

summer2

Happy Monday, and happy summer!  To celebrate the new season,  I hauled myself on over to the Flawless Hot Summer Nights cart sale/hunt to pick up some truly awesome freebies and sale items.  There are dozens of carts on the sim, each with great deals all under $100L, a free gift (hunt for the ice pop!)   I picked up a few things while I was there… okay, a lot of things! This cute cross front top from Saris Creations was one of my favorite finds.  It has a sweet, flowing feel and a great texture.  It pairs perfectly with the Pale Green Necklace from the Beloved Jewelry cart and the Life Nail Polish from Posh Pixels.

It may be summer now, but these eggstrodinarily cute shoes from the MM boards at Bitch Heels are still among my favorites to wear.  Created for SLink high feet, but they are unrigged, so they have the potential to work with other foot styles. The boards do rotate through a few different shoes, but they all are amazing and worth a slap.  The pedicure is courtesy of the same Posh Pixel hud.  It includes 8 cheerful and sometimes psychedelic polishes for Slink hands and feet.  Each polish set is so bright and cheerful.

Here’s to a wonderful Monday, and an even better summer!

When we walked in fields of gold

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree Folks! Friday’s festivities for me today started at the fair… the Kustom9 fair to be factual. It was a first for me and I was not frustrated or foiled! In fact, I was fired up with all the financially frugal fantastic finds!

zenith_Blog

whew… okay, that’s out of my system…  Zenith, a designer I am always excited to see at an event, has a gorgeous summery gacha set at Kustom9 this round. This is the ‘Blue Flowers’ summer dress, one of the commons in the gacha.  I love the soft feminine sundress, it has an almost gauzy look to it, perfect for those hot summer days. The cute hair band is another common and it comes in packs of four so you don’t end up playing onesy twosy trying to pull one color out of twenty.

zenith_004

I don’t normally add handbags to my outfits but this one is just too cute to leave out. This is the ‘straw handbag-milk’ also in the Zenith gacha. Each bag comes with a different colored scarf tied to the handle and a hold animation.  Rounding out my accessories are my new white sandals from Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes. These are the ‘Chelsea’  sandals for system feet and they are part of the 0L  ‘Advanced or Casual Hunt’ from Fi’s Hunts.. This is Lindy’s ‘casual’ prize.

Kustom9 runs until July 10th and the Advanced or Casual Hunt runs until June 30th

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

One wrong turn…there’s no fiesta in Kowloon!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been going by as easily as mine has been. I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for today, as I really, really wanted to share my gorgeous outfit with you. Don’t you just love when you put together a look and everything works so well together that you just want to IM all your friends and go out and party so you can show off? I wanted to find a nice Mexican fiesta, but took a wrong turn and ended up in the neon lit streets of Kowloon. Not really a party place, but it made for a nice backdrop for my pics. I guess I better just get to it and show you what I put together eh?

azulwayne1

It all started with my dress. A friend of mine reminded me of the store AZUL, and how generous they are with putting out a new free group gift every month while leaving some of the older gifts out. I grabbed all of the most recent, fully intending to show you this months offer, until I put on May’s gift. The super sexy, black and white, mesh dress is a show stopper. With its ultra low back, longer-in the back skirt hem, and cute ruffle around the bum, without revealing too much skin, it is a perfect party dress. It comes in all the usual mesh sizes, so everyone should be happy. The AZUL group is free to join, and as I mentioned already, there are several of the past group gifts still out for you to pick up. I have to include a back shot, you understand, right?

azulwayne2

The next logical step in putting my look together…the shoes! Lucky for me, I found the perfect pair while looking around at this weeks round of fi*Friday. First, I want to say how much I love that each fi*Friday round lasts for the whole week, so that even though I post on Thursdays, I can show you something from the current round and it will still be there until tomorrow! OK, onto the shoes. When you buy the Raisa Pumps from Wayne, for SLink high feet, you actually get 4 separate pairs. 2 versions with ankle straps and 2 versions without. What’s even better, they come with 2 colour change huds, one that has gold for the metal accents, and the other is silver. These huds have 20 different colours to choose from. So….if you do the math (and I hope I’ve done it correctly) that is a total of 160 pairs of shoes. Yup…160!! Oh, and they are materials enabled to boot! That gorgeous sheen on all of my pictures is not just a baked texture. All of that, for only L$55…how could I say no. You have until midnight tonight, and then this round of fi*Friday switches over to the new round, so do not wait too long to go grab these.

azulwayne4

Lastly, as I had mentioned that my outfit was making me feel like finding a fiesta…I needed a tropical touch, and it needed to be red to play off of the red I chose for my shoes. Deciding that what I needed was a flower for my hair, I hopped onto the Marketplace to search. I came across the Springtime Hair Flower from AviCandy, that included a 9 different colours of flower, for only L$49. I went with the brights pack to get the red I wanted, but there are 2 other colour variation packs available, so you are sure to find one to match whatever you may be wearing. With as detailed and realistic as these flowers are…you may just want to put together a whole outfit with them as the starter!

azulwayne3

Well…I never did find my party, but that’s ok, as I looked fabulous anyways. I’ll just tune into a salsa music station and make my own party :) Alright lovelies, that is it for me. I will see you all again, same time next week. Until then…TTFN *salsa’s out of the building*

Staying Cool With Menstuff!

whc gabriel ms 061615

Happy Wednesday everyone! This June has been fantastic for male freebie and cheapie-hunters! This week, I bring you more items from the Menstuff Hunt, a one hundred store hunt that runs until the end of June. Hunt prizes are at most 1L, but the majority of them are offered for FREE! There is no reason not to roll your sleeves up and get hunting, the prizes are too good to pass up!

Gabriel, a store with a reputation for generous FREE group gifts, created this beautiful floral print shirt for the Menstuff Hunt. The Mesh Gradation Flower shirt comes in two colors: blue and black. The floral pattern appears in the bottom quarter of the shirt and sleeves for a subtle, summery look without making the shirt look feminine. The lighter color in the upper part of the shirt draws the eye to the chest area where the shirt is unbuttoned and open. This shirt will give you a cool, stylish, laid back look in whichever color you choose to wear. Gabriel’s FREE Menstuff Hunt gift is a great choice to wear around the grid this summer.

To complement the shirt, I chose the Men’s Mesh Kanto Chino Jeans from Hawker’s House. Sporting extremely well-done shading and texturing, these gray jeans look realistic and provide a very manly look, if you know what I mean. There is no reason we should go around looking like Ken dolls, so it’s always nice to see a little shading to give us guys a little added dimension. Hawker’s House’s hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt is one of the most generous gifts in the entire hunt. For 1L, you get these swell mesh jeans, the blue denim boots I am wearing and a red nyc T-Shirt (not pictured). The Men’s Mesh Doc Martin Style Boots in Denim are very nicely textured and likely to stand out more than simple black or brown leather Doc Martin style boots. There is something you should be aware of when you get this excellent hunt gift. I have noticed from personal experience that automatic unpacking scripts occasionally don’t transfer the alpha to inventory along with the other items (if the alpha is no copy). In order to unpack this gift, I strongly recommend rezzing the box on the ground and manually unpacking it instead of clicking the box as instructed. This way, you will have everything you need to enjoy these fantastic boots. Quality, inexpensive footwear for men is not an easy find on Second Life, and for only 1L these boots from Hawker’s House are of high enough quality to deserve a very close look! Plus, you get the Kanto Chino Jeans as well!

My necklace is part of the Menstuff Hunt prize from Timeless Designs. The Rebel Black Agate Rope Necklace and Bracelet are both included in the Menstuff Hunt gift. I really liked the simple, masculine look of these pieces. If you look closely, you can see the braiding of the rope and the designs on the gray beads. Great care and time was obviously invested in creating these products. This hunt gift will only set you back 1L, and Timeless Designs made sure it was money well spent. I know I will enjoy it and hope that some of you will as well.

When I first saw this T-Shirt, I knew I had to blog it. The Fetthunterblack T-Shirt from Fliped Out Designs is a great item for the Sci-fi geek nestled inside all of us. Inspired by the universe’s favorite bounty hunter, the T-Shirt is designed with a large playing card like image with the word “Hunter” in the middle of it. At least I hope it is playing card like. If it was a tarot card I would be packing my bags right now instead of writing this. No reason to take any chances concerning my own fate. This unique graphic tee is the FREE Menstuff Hunt Gift from Fliped Out Designs and is available like the rest of the hunt prizes until the end of June.

These black boots were a super find over at The Grey Goose. The Black A** Kickers turned out to be just what I needed to complete this outfit. They have a detailed leather texture and silver metal fasteners, one zipper and three skull buckles. Originally, I had mixed feelings about highlighting them because they are not resizable at least by any method I am aware of. On the shapes I regularly use, the fit was imperfect. Of course, in these days of mesh, it is not unusual to have to adjust your shape to wear something. So, that was not enough reason to discard a perfectly nice pair of FREE black leather boots, especially considering you can pick them up and make your own decisions. Personally, I kept them! ;-)

Some readers might have noticed I am wearing a different skin than usual. STALKERS! The Menstuff Hunt skin from Seven Deadly Skins is very nice, easily passing my very picky standards, and absolutely no surprise to me. Although it is good enough for any male avy to wear, it is an incredible pick up for any new residents or alts out there. There is no reason to look new when you can find a skin this nice for FREE! Thank you for such a nice hunt gift.

Lastly, I want to point out one item that is NOT part of the Menstuff Hunt. Rather, it is an entirely FREE gift for a limited time from Poetic Colors. The Summer Sky Eyes – Beach Nighteyes are a beautiful blue with some pink and lavender mixed in. Click on my pictures above to get into my flickr, then click once more to magnify the image for an up-close look at these eyes. They are only available for a limited time, so if you like them, run over and pick these up as soon as you can.

That’s it for this week. Although I have highlighted over twenty items from the Menstuff Hunt this month, there are one hundred stores participating. So, try as I might, I have only scratched the surface of this wonderful hunt. I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the For Him Hunt is still going on, but ends on the nineteenth of this month. So, if you want to pick up a really sexy workout outfit blogged here, this is your last chance. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Summer Days

Good evening, FabFree Folks, I hope the Monday is treating you well. After a long weekend, I’m back on the hunt for new designers, great bargains and freebies. I was tickled to see that two of my favorite “Known” Designers both have new Group Gifts out and they match!

hudsons_001

This is the “Ruffle Dress” from American Bazaar and it’s the girls group gift for June. American Bazaar Didn’t forget the guys, there is a nifty pair of board shorts out for y’alls group gift too.  I am in love with the feminine frills and the light summery look of the dress already but add a great hat and shoes… oh yeah, now we’re talkin’!  Hudson’s Clothing has their new June group gift out and it’s not only a beautiful picture hat, it’s shoes ( for SLink High Feet)  and two pretty bangles as well.

HudsonsCollage

This is the Floral Flair Almond Accessories pack and it looks as if it was made to wear with this dress. The hat has lovely floral fabric around the band as well as a fabric flower. As pretty as the hat is, I love these shoes best! The details are perfect and the colors will take it from Summer to Fall with ease.  If that wasn’t enough, you also get two onyx black and gold bangles to complete your look.

Here’s the details and happy shopping!

Casual Mondays

etchhunt1
Over at the Valyria sim, there is a really fun hunt going on, offering gifts for both men and women.  Now through June 3oth, you can pick up a hunt HUD (and instructions!) in the middle of the shopping center.  Wear the hud, and explore the sim to find 24 red Xs.  When your HUD is full, you turn it in back at the HUD kiosk and pick out one of the amazing prizes.  You can earn one item per day, and I will be going back to collect them all.  This outfit, Amelia, is one of the prizes offered up by Etchaflesh. It includes the jacket, jeans, belt, and legwarmer/boot combo.  The jacket is beautiful, and the legwarmers are some of the cutest I have seen, with little daggers tied to the top.  Each item is 100% mesh in multiple sizes, and not only does it look amazing as an outfit, each piece looks awesome on it’s own.

etchhunt2
The jeans and belt combo is quickly becoming a Moira wardrobe staple!  Here I’ve combined them with this cute t shirt I found at Foxy.  I’ve always loved the look of a pristine white tee and jeans, and these two are a perfect combination.  The top has a subtle, realistic texture, and the neckline gives lends just the right amount of daring.  These tees come in a 4 pack and include Physique, Maitreya, and Omega appliers for only $25 per set.

etchhunt3
Rounding out my post this week are these amazing finds from Weaponized Sugar.  The Rudrum $1 eye package includes system and mesh eyes in two sizes and three light levels.  The eyes really pop, and the color is a pretty reddish brown.  I snagged the manicure with Slink and Omega appliers from a lucky board while I was there.  Don’t have mesh hands?  No problem!  Weaponized Sugar was awesome enough to set out free prim nails that will work with the manicures!  Several other gifts and $1 items are available in store, so this is a must stop.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Back to the Beach

Ahhhhh, the weekend is finally here!  And with it… I have returned to the beach. Where, like MZ. Love said, “It’s all peace, love and sandy feet!

BBQ_001

One of my favorite things to do when we lived out in California, was spend all day playing on the beach with our family then building a bonfire to cook out.  So when I saw this adorable ‘Sunshine Beach Set’ from Park Place Home Decore was a prize for the 2L ‘Keep Calm and BBQ’ Hunt I knew I had to have it.  The set comes with the cute chair loaded with  20 poses, the stripy towel also loaded with 13 poses and props PLUS the Picnic Basket.

I also found this cute outfit, ‘Lexington’ from Euphoria Couture, on the Hunt. The set comes with the denim shorts. the red checkered halter top and the red sandals for Slink flat feet. Everything you need for a day on the warm sands.  Last, but not least, I picked up these sweet treats ‘I Scream’ nails from Weaponized Sugar. They are for Slink hands and there is an applier for system hands as well.

BBQ_002

My gorgeous hair is not part of the Hunt but I wanted to tell everyone who loves hair styles about it anyway! Truth Hair is having a huge sale with over 100 styles all marked down to 50L per color pack. This is ‘Aradhana’ and it comes with the color change HUD for the hair band so it will fit lots of your outfits. I don’t know how long this awesome sale will last so hurry over and stock up!
