Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Picnic In The ParkSo many hunts, so little time. I keep telling myself that I’ll get to all these hunts but they just keep slipping though my schedule. If only real life could just be put on hold! My partner and I recently finished the Puss & Boots Hunt. It was a fun hunt, though I haven’t even started opening the boxes yet.

Anyway, there are lots of hunts to partake of if you have the time. Good luck with that!

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, it’s time to get your feet wet. Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So peruse these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Sign Rock & Cute Brii HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, May 19.

The latest store hunt at Brii is topping the chart this week. It’s the Rock & Cute Hunt. Sorry guys, Brii is just for the gals, but it’s usually some pretty great stuff. It’s a L$1 hunt by the way.

For the guys, there’s Just For Him, a fair and sim hunt that just started yesterday. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I plan to.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

A ViSion in Lumae

ViSion Lumae

It’s the weekend, it’s the weekend, it’s the weekend!!!

Okay now that I got that out of my system, I’ve got some loveliness to share with you. For starters, this beautiful skin from Lumae. So this lovely skin with the pretty purple eye shadow, and soft pink lip-color is available at Lumae for just 75 lindens per tone. Each tone includes a freckled version and a non-freckled version, cleavage options, brow options, as well as appliers for everything. No seriously, everything. The list of appliers included is Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hands & Feet, AMD Baby Bump, Omega (regular & petite), TMP Body & Head, Lelutka Head, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips, and Kissers. In addition, you’ll find two shapes in the box, one of which is ready-made to be worn with a Loud Mouth attachment. Do not miss out on this fabulous Lumae deal!

Next is this cute and a bit daring semi-sheer top from ViSion. This top is a FREE group gift at the ViSion store, the ViSion group is FREE to join as well. Also, there are about ten group gifts out at ViSion, most of which are sexy tops and lingerie. Not interested in something quite so sheer? I think this would be just as sexy with a solid colored bra or tank top under it. This gift top comes in regular system layers, and has appliers for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, and TMP. Most of the gifts include appliers of some kind, some are even geared toward more curvy mesh parts and include Lolas and Azz appliers. Go, check out the ViSion store, and grab some sexy FREE gifts while you’re there.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Fi_s_Hunts_-_Gingham_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! There is a pretty darn good lineup of hunts going on right now, but some of them end TODAY. I’ve marked these for you just in case you want to get in on them at the last minute.

You should be able to find a hunt theme to enjoy. We have cats, whimsy, camping, the 50’s, antiques, and more as the currently running hunt themes. I’ve personally got the Gingham Hunt on my list of things to do, but gearing up for the SL12B Community Celebration (Second Life’s 12th birthday) is taking up a lot of my time. I’ll tell you more about that in a later article. I’m pretty excited about it.

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, what are you waiting for? Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So take a look at these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just prod the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Mud and Bones

bones & mud

Happy Monday Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Despite it being Monday, I’m excited to be here and even more so to share some great freebies with you. Let’s get to it!

I know you see Pru wear a LOT of hair styles from Little Bones. I’ll be the first to tell you, Little Bones is my go-to shop for hair in Second Life. Not only do I love the styles, I enjoy the color options as well. The hair pictured above is the current Group Gift at Little Bones. The style is named Crimson and the gift includes the “Resort” color change hud which has a variety of fun bright color fades (think pinks, oranges, yellows, and greens). It also includes a hud to change the “scalp” color for a little added detail, or you can simply turn the scalp portion of the hair off so that there’s no visible scalp at all. Another reason I very much enjoy Little Bones is that the VIP group is one of the most generous gift-giving groups I am a member of.  I was in the store today, and I took a count of the VIP gifts still available. There are 14 FREE gifts out at Little Bones, including the current one. That said, there is a one-time fee of 100 lindens to join the group. However that’s less than 10 lindens per hairstyle! Some of the gifts are even Fat Packs that include all the color options. So, I think I’ve made my case, the 100 linden fee is completely worth it.

Next, this pretty skin Pru has on is the May group gift at MUDSkin. The skin comes in a Fat Pack of tones that includes the Native tone shown in the photo above and a wide rage of pale to dark tones. The gift is FREE, and the MUDSkin group is FREE to join. I think these lips are just lovely, and it’s not often I see group gift skins with pretty ginger/brown brows. The brows are tinted just so that I think they would match well with light brunette and darker blonde shades as well. Either way, this beautiful skin is FREE, and well worth the effort of giving it a try. I thought it looked rather good with Pru’s brightly colored hairstyle!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Birds & The Bees Hunt SignIf you’re a hunter like me, you’re happy that there are always so many hunts going on at any given time. Heck, if it weren’t for hunting, my wardrobe wouldn’t be continually stuffed with new clothes. I very nearly never have to wear the same thing twice, though I do have my favorites… and for the most part, they all came from hunts!

If you’re not a hunter, you need to get in the game! Hunts are a great way to get all kinds of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So check out all the May hunts going on right now. Click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

You’re Worth It

You're Worth It

Hello Fab Free! I’ve recovered from my long weekend and I’m glad to be back. I have a few great group gifts to share with you to get the week started. The first item is the May group gift at Entice, followed by the May group gift at Mes Petites Coutures. I hope you like them.

This on-piece outfit with the gold flourish accent is fully mesh and completely FREE at Entice. I love it when cute outfits come in a single mesh. Sometimes I’m in a rush and outfits like this “You’re Worth It” number from Entice make dressing easy. All you need is an Entce group tag and the outfit is yours. The Entice group is FREE to join.

Next, I picked up this super cute freckled skin at Mes Petites Coutures. The Mes Petites Coutures group is also FREE to join, so this pretty skin is a truly FREE gift. This group gift also includes a matching loud mouth applier. I like the uniqueness of the freckled face on this skin, and the “cookie” tone is a nice warm tan. I liked it so much that I even purchased the Maitreya appliers also available at Mes Petites Coutures.

Lastly, I picked up this pretty little hair piece for just $75 lindens on the Marketplace. I think this accessory from Ity is both pretty and fun. It’s a great alternative to wearing more traditional jewelry when you’re trying to dress up an outfit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
