My Second Life closet seems to have taken a leaf or three out of the pages of my first. It’s laughably messy for one thing, and for another, it’s slowly being conquered by t-shirts. Solid colored ones, ones with slogans or symbols or band logos…I find them difficult to resist and this was most certainly true with the t-shirt pictured. It’s perky purple and pink tie and dye design is simple but eye catching and needless to say I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped into the retirement sale room at Imbue. At 50L I felt that it was a steal but if you’re not as big a t-shirt fan as I am there are other clothing items at the sale for you to peruse. The shirt comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS – L) and has a very good alpha layer. While you’re there and if it strikes your fancy join the Imbue group for 50L and slap the Midnight Mania board or try your luck on the Letters. Oh and don’t forget to pick up the group gifts, one of which has been blogged by Prudence {HERE}

As the pattern on the shirt reminded me of galaxies I quickly paired it up with another closet staple of mine, the skater skirt. The one above comes from Mag<3 B‘s Marketplace store and will cost you only 5L. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS -XL) as well as sizes specific to Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies. The light and airy textures are wonderful and not only that it has a subtle dusting of glitter over it which I thought tied in nicely with the shirt.

Up next are the garter socks from Sn@tch and boots from Baby Monkey. These two stores were some of the very first I’ve stepped into in my first few days of Second Life and I’ve come back time and again because of their quality products and generous designers. The Shannon garter socks pack contains thirteen different colors of system layered socks as well as Omega and Slink applier HUDs. It’s currently in one of Sn@tch‘s riot vendors and I got my copy at 63L. If you’re planning on getting these bring a friend or seven. Sn@tch has six riot vendors and you can try to see just how low you can bring them. When you’re done hop by to Baby Monkey to pick up these boots. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee and past group gifts like those cute boots above cost 10L each.

The skin I’m wearing is 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ latest group gift called Klaasje. I love the subtle makeup on the skin as well as the fact that this month’s gift was really very generous. Two system skins in the tone Caramel, Lelutka and Catwa mesh face applier, shape and eyebrow shape along with a style card. 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group fee of 150L but the Klaasje skin and all past group gifts will be available to you for free this month so it’s most certainly worth it. To get a look at the male group gift by 7 Deadly s{K}ins it’s been blogged {HERE} by Loki.

To top it off is the Lyra hair from Alice Project that you can get for free by slapping their midnight mania board. There’s no group join required so this beautifully feathered style is just a click away. If colored hair is not to your taste the Lyra hair comes with a hud mishmash of fifteen different colors and I hope you find one that fits you perfectly. I did!

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.

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

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!

Get Leid HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! We’re seeing lots more sim and store hunts crop up lately. Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

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.

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

Sunday Stretching with Flair

Told ya I’d be back soon!

Sunday Stretching

When I logged in earlier today, I had a notecard from Flair, saying for a short 24hrs, they’d have their ballet slipper set of nail appliers as a free gift for everyone, in celebration of the new SLink pointe feet. I do not know when that 24hrs started from, but as of this post, they are still out, so I am guessing it is at least until midnight tonight, if not into tomorrow. The set is for SLink hands and feet only, and I think they are just adorable, no ballet experience necessary! I’ve included a picture of the ad itself so you get a really good look at the colour choices available.

Sunday Stretching With Flair

Oh, and are you eyeing up my comfy pink leggings I have on? They are an older free for everyone gift from Flair that is still available. It was shown here on FabFree a few years ago (I did say older) but they are still just as good today. There are 3 colours, and come in system layers as well as include a SLink Physique hud, that will also work on just the feet.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that the coming week has nothing to dread 😛 I will see you all again real soon. TTFN *waves*

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

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!
