Flowers & Paws

Flowers and Paws

Evening FabFree! It’s been a busy weekend for me, but I dropped in to share some special treats with you… a little bit here… a little bit there! It all adds up to something colorful!

This round of Hairology wraps up June 30th, so if you haven’t stopped by to get all the FREE SLB13 cake gifts, you should hurry. Tonight, I’m showing you the gift from Iconic. It is a high and sleek, mesh pony tail that is really stylish. It’s a full fatpack of colors, so don’t miss out.

My mesh LBGT Pride shirt by GetDressed is a lucky 9L find on the marketplace. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and its own alpha if you are using a standard system body. I liked the loose fit and the unique texture on the material of the traditional tank top cut.

My pretty manicure will only set you back 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. You still have time to get in on the goods at the Cart Wash! This manicure is by New.Monday and called “Flower Power”. It features flowers on your nails. For just 10L you get 3 colors for Slink nails. There are a couple of other pretty manicure sets out that you’ll want to check out!

I also picked up my Pride paws body paint at the Cart Wash Sale courtesy of the same Cart. New.Monday has set out the Pride Paws in either a top or bottom layer for just 10L each. So if you want only one or you want both, it’s up to you! You have the flexibility! This body paint is system layer only, but definitely worth rocking you system body for!

My shorts are another great find at the Cart Wash Sale (I told you I was giving you the goods this evening!). You’ll find this great pair of high waist shorts at the Vicarious Youth Cart for just 10L. They come in distressed Denim. I found that they ran a little on the small side, so I did have to wear a larger-than-my-usual size, but they are still a great fit!

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

Your Friday Hunt Report

SL13BIG HUNT 300Second Life often gets a little quieter in the summer months, but you’ll still find some fabulous hunts going on, and coming this weekend is Second Life’s annual birthday event: The SL13B Community Celebration (SL13B for short). You’ll find 17 regions with some of the most fantastic builds in SL. The fun all starts on Sunday, June 19th.

SL13B has a number of hunts, large and small. You’ll want to check out the SL13BIG HUNT which spans multiple regions at the event. My very own contribution is the SL13B Nano Hunt which includes 13 prizes. You’ll have to write and let me know how you like it.

Bermuda

Bermuda

Astrid already posted, but I decided to sneak in a post today too. I wanted to show you a couple of June gifts that are out. One is just for us men… the other is Unisex, so you ladies can win out on it too.

Swim season is well underway, and all the gals have been showing you some great swimwear. Thankfully, American Bazaar has not forgotten the menfolk. Right now if you stop by the main-store, you can pick up this pair of FREE Beachy Bermuda shorts in all the standard sizes as the current group gift, and the group is FREE to join. The fit and cut are excellent… and I’m fond of the blue color and texture.

A while back, I showed you some spot on tattoos from Suicide Gurls. If you happened to join up and still have your tag (it’s a one time fee of 150L) then you’ll want to pick up the unisex June gift I am showing you in the picture above called Valdis. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP. It also offers the tattoo in fresh, faded, and soft layers. If you’re hesitant about the 150L group fee, remember… you’ll have access to group gifts for the last 6 months.

Sit Stay Good Dog

Sit Stay Good Dog“Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…” Does anyone else start singing that song from Grease when every they see “Summer Lovin'” written anywhere? lol Okay maybe it’s just me. Since it’s been a minute since my last post, I’ve filled this one with fun stuff from the Women Only Hunt, and one item from the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Both hunts started June 1st, and there are so many cute things to hunt for, it was hard to pick what to show! Also you may have seen a few posts from some of my Fabulous teammates. I’ll link to their posts in the credits as well, just in case!

I’m going to start with this puppy and ice cream pose from Le Poppycock because it’s my favorite. I’m such a sucker for French bulldogs, and this little guy, or gal, is just irresistible. The pose shown in the top photo, the puppy, and the delicious looking ice cream cone are all included in the FREE Women Only Hunt gift at Le Poppycock. If your a photographer this pose set is especially great, because the puppy is meant to be worn. Wearing the puppy puts your avatar in the pose so you can use it without having to rez anything. The gift also comes with the pose, so you could rez the puppy and use the pose alone, allowing for a little more versatility.Sit Stay Good Dog 2Also part of the Women Only Hunt is this frilly little crop top from 1 Hundred. This is an applier top with appliers for almost everything you could imagine. There is a single hud that includes appliers for mesh breasts (Lolas, Lush, Mirage, Delicq,Omega), and mesh bodies (Wowmeh, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Omega). Additionally this FREE WOH gift from 1 Hundred includes classic system layers for non mesh wearers.

This sinfully sweet full-body tattoo is another FREE WOH gift. Chemical Princess put this “Cupcake” tattoo out, and I just love it. The tattoo is filled with yummy looking candies, cupcakes, ice cream, and other sweets. This gift tattoo comes with an Omega applier, a Slink applier, and classic system layers. Tattoo lovers like me won’t want to miss out on this delicious tattoo!

Arise is also participating in the WOH and their gift is a beautiful set of “Sunny” eyes. These shining bright blue eyes are part of the FREE set from Arise. The gift includes a brown, grey, lime, purple, and sky pair of eyes along with the light blue ones shown. In the package you’ll get a set of mesh eyes for each color and a matching system eye layer. Sunny is definitely an appropriate name for these eyes, each of the colors are equally bright and vibrant.

Back to the Summer Lovin’ part of this post! Slipper put out these cute sandals as their Summer Lovin’ Hunt gift. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so these cute shoes are just 1 linden. The gift includes a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. Also, Slipper is participating in the Women Only Hunt as well, so don’t forget to hunt down that gift while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

WOH1 logoJune is here and a bunch of spicy hot new hunts started up on Wednesday, June 1st. You can be the first kid on your block to enjoy that wonderful new hunt smell.

The organizers of the Men Only Hunt are taking a turn to the opposite gender and have introduced the Women Only Hunt. This is a big hunt with 67 stores, and so far it looks like a hit. You might want to check it out.

The World at Your Feet Hunt should appeal to you if you feet, shoes, boots, etc. It’s another pretty beefy hunt with 46 stores in it. Might take you a couple of days. Bring a friend!

Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new-to-me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe.:)

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.

Weekend Sale at House of Darcy!

Get PiercedHello There Fab Free’rs! I’m certain you’ve noticed what this post is about without reading a word. Piercings. This weekend only House of Darcy has lowered their VIP group join fee to just 50 lindens, and all individual items are marked down to 50 lindens each. House of Darcy is known for their detailed, intense piercing sets. Needless to say I was thrilled to hear about this sale and discounted entry into their VIP group.

I went through the shop wearing my House of Darcy group tag and picked up no less than 12 past and current FREE group gifts and exclusives. The VIP exclusive items that are separate from the VIP gifts are also FREE for this weekend only. Essentially that means I paid the one time fee of 50 lindens and was able to pick up 12 detailed piercing sets at no additional cost. The 5 above pictured piercing sets are just a sample. I do want to mention that some of these gifts are older, so don’t expect to see appliers. At least one set also includes classic tattoo layers to enhance the piercings. Each gift includes the full piercing set in several colors. I had to manually adjust the size and location of the individual parts to each piercing to fit my mesh face and body. Additionally the piercings that have two sections, such as chest and face, can be worn separately as well as together. Before I forget, many of the gifts are either unisex, or include a male and female version!
Henna MoonLastly, after picking up all the awesome FREE VIP Gifts at House of Darcy, I couldn’t resist this henna style tattoo for just 50 lindens. This back piece does include an Omega applier as well as the classic system tatoo layer. I think this stylized crescent moon is just pretty enough to look good with a more feminine appearance, but masculine enough to be worn by someone more rugged. There’s roughly one day left for this amazing sale, so don’t hesitate to run over to House of Darcy and join their VIP group before the sale ends and their join fee goes back up on Monday.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

HUNT SL Surf Into Summer HuntThere are some good hunts going on right now, which begs the question… why aren’t you out hunting!? LOL.

Are you into fantasy? There are some nice fantasy hunts happening. Check out the Enchanted Fairy Tale Hunt, the Mystery Fantasy Hunt, and Nightmares & Fairy Tales if you like that sort of thing.

As usual, there are some great things to be picked up at The Free Dove. There are three different free store hunts running there from various designers. Check them out!

There are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Do them all and your inventory will be bulging. But most importantly… have fun.
