Good morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.
There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.
I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!
Good Morning Fabulous Hunters! It’s hard to believe that Labor Day (the sort of official end of of the summer here in the USA) is almost upon us. There’s lots to be happy about in the hunt world this weekend here in the last bit of summer vacation.
So take a gander at all these fine hunts and find the one that’s just right for you. Your bulging inventory will thank you for all the free (or very nearly free) stuff before it’s time to head back to school.
Good morning Fabulous Friends! There are lots of fun hunts to tell you about, including two which just started today… The Collection (a Madpea event) and The Nishi Mall Crawl (a sim hunt with lots of prizes).
There are many more hunts to choose from of course, and the themes abound. Rock music, bowling, marriage, fashion, and birds, are just some of them. I’m sure you can find a theme that’s “the one” for you. Have a powwow with your friends and decide which one to go on!
A whole bunch of July hunts end TODAY! If you’ve been procrastinating, it’s time to get up and get going. There are literally hundreds of free (or very nearly free) hunt prizes to be picked up, but they’re all going to go POOF at midnight. Tell your friends!
Good news is ahead in the form of all the August hunts that will be starting tomorrow. Don’t worry… I’ll post about those and fill you in when they’ve launched, so stay tuned.
We’re starting to wind down to the end of July, and there are a whole bunch of hunts ending on the 31st that you probably want to get in on. There is no shortage of themes… sun, cats, explosions, tea, vikings, and yes… even Christmas. That’s right… Christmas. Just have a look at the hunts in this report if you don’t believe me.
Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.
Hello again, my FabFree dears! You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!
I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!
To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that! While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.
Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9. These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!
In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.
In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.
But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.
So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!
The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.
There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!
And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.
One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.
I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!
