Crabby Cakes

Crabby Cakes

Hey, FabFree! I have a couple more items from the Get Crabby Hunt to share with you all. I’ll be quick because this hunt ends on September 18th, so you only have a couple more days to do it. You may remember that the Get Crabby Hunt group costs 500L to join and you need to be in the group to participate in it. You can read all the details about the hunt and access the previews of the hunt prizes in my original post about the hunt HERE. I also showed another prize from the hunt in this post.

Today I am showing a cute crab-themed top and crab-patterned shoes which you can nab on the Get Crabby Hunt until September 18th.

Don’t Worry, Be Crabby

My t-shirt is the prize from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. I definitely have a crabby side to my personality so I was drawn to this tee right away! Please note that this tee will be retired forever after the hunt is over, so this is a one-time-only limited exclusive.

  • Isis
  • Venus

Starlight Apparel has been coming out with some really cute textures and different versions of their “Paris Sneakers” lately. This one is a special edition with crabs on it just for a hunt! Here’s a closeup of the shoes- they are so cute. This is also another exclusive for the hunt so this will be your last chance to get it.

The Get Crabby Hunt!

Get Crabby Hunt

I’ve been having lots of fun this month blogging the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. You can see my past posts on this complex and huge event here and here. Today I’m introducing you to another aspect of this event. On top of the main event, they have a hunt going on, which takes place at Get Crabby Hunt Island. As you explore the Sim, the hunt object you are looking for is a crab! This is a paid hunt, and a group join fee is required to participate in it. The group costs 500L to join. Pictures of all the Get Crabby Hunt prizes are posted on their hunt web page HERE. You will see group joiners for the hunt group at Get Crabby Hunt Island. You can also pick up a crab plushie and crab hats as a group gift there as well if you decide to join the hunt group. Here is the link to the hunt group to join if you have trouble finding it. Again, be warned that the group costs 500L to join.

Note that 100% of the funds that are spent towards the Get Crabby Hunt are being donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the designers do not make any profits from this hunt. It’s very kind of the creators out there to make all those products and to put them up for a benefit. Sometimes we don’t recognize how hard creators work to give us gifts, but to go the extra mile to donate beautiful products to a fundraiser that gives back to society shows how incredible the creative community in Second Life is. Doctors Without Borders is an organization that provides medical care to people around the world as a result of war, conflicts, and other crises. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival donated over 100, 000 real-life American dollars from this event in the last 7 years, and I hope these donations can help those in need around the world this year too! The Get Crabby Hunt ends on September 18th, so if you plan to do this hunt make sure you get to it well before this date so you have time to find all the prizes.

I am showing two hunt prizes from the Get Crabby Hunt and another 10L find from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival today as featured items, so keep reading for all the details!

Do you Love to Mix & Match?

First off, the fabulous outfit I have on is an absolute must-have! This is the Get Crabby Hunt prize from MOoH!. This outfit includes a bikini top, a skirt and bikini bottoms (which are worn under my skirt). This is a versatile set because you can wear it as a bikini, a full outfit or separates. The outfit comes with a number of funky patterns you can apply to the separate parts via a colour change HUD, so mixing and matching is possible. Plain classic colours that are included in the hud are red, white, light violet, dark plum and pink. Pattern options include florals, skulls, a dragon pattern (shown here) and some other fun patterns. You can see the possibilities of mixing and matching the texture options in this outfit in the vendor photo below.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Petite
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Mounds

Melinda outfit

Pineapple, Bora Bora

The second hunt prize I am featuring is a wonderful painting of a pineapple made by Katherine Littlepaws, who owns Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery. This painting is just fantastic- it looks so realistic, colourful and expressive! The background is fantastic with the collage elements the artist has included. This is a prize on the Get Crabby Hunt.

Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery also has another painting on a special promotion for only 10 Lindens at their Spoonful of Sugar Festival booth. The get to the exact spot where you can grab the painting, go  here. The item on sale for this low price is the small colourful painting shown in my photo on top of the pineapple piece. Note that this smaller painting is not part of the hunt, so anyone can purchase it and no group is required to buy it for 10L. 100% of the proceeds spent on this painting are given to Doctors Without Borders.

Phew, that was a lot of information! Have fun, FabFree! I’m off to go get a tropical cocktail now. I deserve it after all that writing. 😉

Dark Strikes Back

Dark Strikes Back

Aline and I are on the same wavelength, as I also have a dark look to show tonight! Nothing is better than black and purple makeup and clothes. I have lots of big news to share in this post, as there’s a lot going on right now! This post is filled with information, so I don’t have too much poetic to say other than I created a really fun black and purple dark look with everything I collected today.

You Have to Get in on Yomi‘s New Midnight Madness Board!

There’s been a lot going on at Yomi lately, and that includes a brand new Midnight Madness board that’s filled with goodies. You must join Yomi‘s group to use the board. Once you are in the group, you can play it. Only 75 slaps are required to lock it every night, so it has locked every day! You better show up at midnight, though. One of the things Yomi has filled the board with are a whole bunch of older hairstyles, which they retired to their Marketplace store. From what I understand everything on their Marketplace store are retired items, and they all currently have a chance of showing up on the board. For me, it was a no-brainer to join the group because if I can land some of those items and collect their VIP group gifts too, I’m sold! Their VIP group costs 100L to join, and I consider that an excellent deal for all I have gotten already. I’ve only been in the group for about a week, and I won a new prize every day. I am wearing the following items from these offers at Yomi tonight.

  • The hairstyle I am wearing is called “Four”, and it is one of the prizes on the Midnight Madness board. It’s a full fatpack of hair. It includes 3 head sizes, 3 chest sizes, and mirrored versions of the style. It also includes an amazing colour hud that allows you to change the hair to 70 different colours and roots options are included as well.
  • The beautiful choker is one of their VIP group gifts. It’s an older one, but I absolutely love it! It includes a hud to change the colour of the band and the metals of the rings.

All right, so that’s the first half of my post done. I now have 1300L in store credits to tell you about, so let’s keep going.

800L @ Tutti Belli

Dark Strikes Back
One of the best makeup stores on the grid, Tutti Belli, currently has 800L in store credits available for free. You must join their group to claim it, and the group is free to join. The credit is available until August 20th, so go grab it and spend it quick. From Tutti Belli, I am wearing:

  • A set of black lipsticks, which I purchased with the free store credits. These are an HD makeup applier that only work on Lelutka EvoX heads.
  • A set of eyeshadows in 6 colour options, which I purchased with the free store credits. These are an HD makeup applier that only work on Lelutka EvoX heads.

Check the credits posted at the bottom of this post to see the exact names of these makeup packs if you want to buy these ones with your free store credit. You only have 2 days left to spend them, so go get this offer quickly before it’s gone!

500L Customer Credit Daily Draw @ Pure Poison

Dark Strikes Back
Finally, Pure Poison has 500L in store credits available for their customers as their latest group gift. The way they are handing out the credits are a bit different this time around. Every day, the first 100 people to click the board (for those who qualify) will win 500L in store credit. It’s basically a free daily draw contest, and the first who get there win. Do the following steps to try to get in on the offer!

  1. First, you must have previously purchased 200L in shoes at Pure Poison to qualify for the offer. You need to be on their credit system to win the daily draw.
  2. Second, join the free Pure Poison group.
  3. Third, click the 500L store credit board at the main store at midnight.
  4. Check the “previous days’ winners” board at the main store the next day to see if you won.

I suggest you go at midnight to increase your chances to win. This offer is sort of a mix between a Midnight Madness Board and a free gift card so it’s really cool!

Note the following conditions on the free 500L in-store credits at Pure Poison. If you win, you are not allowed to keep entering the daily draw. You can only win this offer once, so don’t spam the board after you win it once. In three months’ time after you win the 500L in credits, you can do these steps again because customers are eligible to get this reward ONCE every three months. Pure Poison will send you a notecard with the other rules and conditions with this store credit offer when you click the board to enter the contest, so make sure you go over those rules to participate. There are lots of 10-50L deals in the outlet you can spend your credit on.

I used my store credits to buy a pair of new shoes called the Sandra Platforms and they are fab! These come with a detailed colour HUD that lets you change each part of the shoe. You will have lots of extra credit left if you choose to buy these. Who knows, you may want to choose something else because they have so many amazing designs to pick from at the store!

Sizes Included (Shoes)

  • Reborn
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

The High Priestess

The High Priestess

Oh hello there, and thank you as always for being here. I think it goes without saying that I’m feeling a bit devilish in my new dress from Shy Doll. The best part, it didn’t cost me a thing. For this post I’m excited to be sharing with you a limited time group gift at Shy Doll.

The Shy Doll group is free to join, and from now until Saturday January 23rd you can get a free 500 linden gift card with your group tag. If you ask me that’s one h-e-double hockey-sticks of a deal. Have fun, and happy shopping!
