All The Seasons for Witches

Coming Soon

The fall season is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show all things spooky and witchy on the blog. In fact, when I was a FabFree reader, I loved when Pru showed us all of her amazing witchy outfits throughout the year. They were deffinitely an inspiration for me. I love all things witchy, so let’s dig into some witch-themed gifts available on the grid right now!

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Following the end of Halloween at the beggining of November, I was roaming around the grid in this gorgeous green witch skin. Feeling a bit forlorn that the Halloween season was over and designing my costume for next year, I went shopping and exploring in my new green look. I thought I looked cute but you wouldn’t believe the mean comments I got from people about my bright green skin! I guess it’s just not easy being green.

The skin in question is a free gift at Wyrd and despite the bullies out there, it’s an absolutely gorgeous fantasy witch skin. It’s called “Hexed” and you can grab it in-world if you join the free group at Wyrd. It’s also available on the Marketplace for free.

Another Hunt Down

Third on today’s list are the last goodies I have to share with you all on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. The prizes shown in my witchy scene this afternoon are:

  • The dark blue horns, which are decorated with sunflowers and autumn leaves, are a prize at +Inner Mantra+ and they cost 5 Linden.
  • The frosty-toned blue lipstick I am currently wearing is another hunt prize at +Inner Mantra+, and it costs 5 linden. It comes as a BOM layer.
  • The wall piece with mirrors, greenery, and lights is a decor prize from +Inner Mantra+ that costs 5 Linden.
  • The witch’s cabinet with melting candles is the last prize from +Inner Mantra+ and you can own this pretty and witchy furniture item for only 5 Linden.
  • Finally, my adorable shoes are another hunt prize from Mosquito’s Way. These are the “Marylou” boots and they are free on the hunt.

All of the hints and photos for the hunt can be seen here. It’s been an honour to cover some of the prizes on this hunt. Thank you to the wonderful creators that contributed to this excellent event, and to Aline for organizing it! The hunt ends on November 30th, so make sure you pick up the prizes before the end of this month!

See you soon, FabFree!

Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter

Coming Soon

I have a feeling this will be my last fall-themed pic for 2021. I guess it’s time to say goodbye. Christmas is coming up so soon and I’m honestly excited for it this year! I have loved all the pumpkins and cozy fall leaves, but after this it will be time to transition to winter for me. After all, the snow literally just started falling down where I live. Although I am not a winter weather girl myself, I love all the fun that comes with the Christmas season.

You Need Some Long Skirts This Season

I love long skirts because they can be worn in the fall and winter months (as long as you’re wearing some leggings underneath). This skirt is a lot like something I would actually wear in real life during these frosty months. The adorable white and black star-patterned long skirt I am wearing is another prize on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. This is one of 4 possible hunt items to find at Blink2Wink. The other 3 prizes are the same skirt with black stars but the base colours of those skirts come in blue, red and purple. Each skirt costs only 5 Linden each.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Enjoy, FabFree!

Blogging the Leaves Away!

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m back with more prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt! I have been blogging the fall leaves out of this hunt and loving every minute of it! I hope you enjoy seeing the amazing prizes.

The Prizes from Koukla

Koukla has some really cute and functional decor prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt! From them we have:

  • Cute pillows! They have many pillows included in the hunt with cats, acorns, and abstract design patterns on them. They are adorbs! The pillows come in 2 packs at 5L each. I mixed and matched the pillows so make sure you check the hunt key here to see what’s included in each pack.
  • A small and very aesthetically pleasing humidifier, also at the low price of 5L. It even emits steam!
  • A little sound machine on the floor looks really chic and new! It also plays some relaxing sounds. This prize costs 5L.
  • The FabFree versions of the “Challenge Accepted” game. Honestly, I have no clue what this game is but it looks fun! Plus it’s a FabFree version! We’re famous! We even have our own game name after us now! All jokes aside, this item also costs 5L on the hunt.

Deloris

My shoes are another hunt prize on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt at Mosquito’s Way. Aline previously blogged their “Darcy Boots” hunt prize here. I wanted to sneak in a pair of shoes from the hunt this month if I could! These are the Deloris heels an they are fab. They come in a nice beige colour. These are free on the hunt!

These Are a Few of My Favourite Things

Coming Soon

Hey, Fab Free! I told you I would be back soon with more great items on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt today. There are so many great gifts this round, and they all match my style! I also have another big announcement about my favourite type of freebies, so keep reading. All in all, I’m showing off a few of my favourite things today including glamourous makeup and some amazing free hairstyles!

Hunt Prizes from Poema

I am currently wearing two hunt prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt from Poema today. I’m featuring the makeup prizes, and they are simply gorgeous. Each hunt prize at Poema costs 5 Linden each. 

  • The first item I am showcasing is a gorgeous lipstick applier. This is the “Sexy Mami” Lipstick and it comes in a palette of brown tones. This applier is made for Lelutka Evo X heads only. 
  • Second is the “Arabella Blush”- this is radiant blush also made for Lelutka Evo X heads, but it comes in BOM layers. It just lights up your face and makes you glow. 

Bundles of free hair!

My other big annoucement in today’s post is about my favourite thing of all- hair! The lovely hair store formerly known as Little Bones has moved shop and renamed their store Nova. Here is your taxi to the new store. You can now join their group for free and get all past group gifts for free. Most of the 18 free hairstyles come in Mermaid packs that include bright, colourful combinations, highlights and tones. Each pack also includes a tint hud that allows you to tint your hair, which I was able to use to make the hairstyle have that rich dark red colour I love. I’m not sure how long this promotion will be available. I think the group is temporarily free to join, so go get the group gifts while you still can!

Until next time, FabFree!

The first few prizes I want to share from the hunt are a few pieces of beautiful decor at Noveny, one of my all-time favourite furniture and decor stores. The hunt items from this lovely designer are whimsical and remind me a bit of Alice in Wonderland. I love that floating clock especially, and it even have a beautiful inscription of the store name on it. In addition to the clock, there are also 2 lanterns, and that awesome tree with the sparkling magical globe inside available as prizes on the cute! These are awesome items, and they cost 5L each on the hunt. The hints to find the 4 items are:

  1. “Let us assist you”
  2. “Don’t have a sweet tooth, you can get caught”
  3.  “Love Love Love, red, sorry love”
  4.  “I’m the bigger one here”

Enchanting Dress

The other item I am showing today is the beautiful Crystal Dress, which is the hunt prize by Ari-Pari. There are 5 versions of the dress available for 5L each, just look for those little fairies and these dresses are yours! The hints to find the 5 dresses are:

  1. “Don’t forget to vote!”
  2. “Watch your step!”
  3. “Feel free to join our group!”
  4. “Twinkle, twinkle little… hedge?!”
  5. “How much is that faerie in the window?”

Sizes Included

Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman
I couldn’t stop at just one. Just one what you ask? One post about the 5 linden hunt prizes at the Mystical Market. For this post I have 2 more of the Mystical Market hunt prizes to share with you. One from JR Wolf Creations, and one from Astara. As mentioned in my last post, the hunt object is a little black cauldron with purple brew. There are no hints for these hunt items, however they are not truly hidden so much as settled into the landscape. Some cauldrons are sitting inside their corresponding shop. Happy Hunting!

JR Wolf Creations

This witchy halter top is the Mystical Market hunt prize by JR Wolf Creations. The top has a cool watercolor/tie dye look overlaid with arcane symbols. It comes in quite a few sizes and like all the Mystical Market hunt prizes is just 5 linden.

Sizes included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L) + Alpha Layer, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Astara

The triple ring septum piercing I’m wearing is the Mystical Market hunt prize by Astara. The rings are thin which I think gives them a demure look which isn’t always easy with such a bold piercing. This 5 linden hunt prize includes a color hud with several metal color options.

What I’m wearing:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Septum Piercing – Astara – Triple Septum – 5L Hunt Prize @Mystical Market

Let’s Get Mystical


Bewitching

“Let’s get mystical, mystical, I wanna get mystical. Let’s get into mystical… “

Okay that’s not really how the song goes but it was kinda fun to sing it that way! Why am I changing the lyrics to an Olivia Newton John song? The Mystical Market of course! Don’t try to understand my pretzel logic, it’ll only confuse you more. The point of all this silliness is there happens to be a 5 linden hunt happening at Mystical Market. There are little black cauldrons full of witchy prizes scattered around the area. For this post I picked up 2 of the many 5-linden hunt prizes, the prize from WitchCraft and the prize from LOVE. Let’s get mystical.

WitchCraft

The black lace-trimmed dress I’m wearing is the 5 linden hunt prize by WitchCraft at Mystical Market. The dress comes in a several sizes and has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices.

Sizes Include: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

LOVE

The pretty floral wall is part of the 5 linden hunt prize by LOVE at Mystical Market. This gift includes a pack of pretty floral walls that remind me of climbing flowering vines. They come in several colors with 3 versions each, and have little twinkle lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

There aren’t really any hints for these hunt prizes, however I can tell you that the cauldrons you’ll be looking for aren’t often hidden as much as they are settled in and around the landscape. Some are even hiding right in plain sight!

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Summer Hairplay – Chinook – Ombre
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Dress – [WitchCraft] Willow dress – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. If you’re in need of some retail therapy, but your lindens (like mine!) are limited, you might check out the Black and White Hunt happening at CroM. This hunt is a CroM store hunt, and the prizes are 5 linden each. You’ll be looking for small black and white televisions hidden around the store. The short-alls and long sleeve top Pru has on are together one of the 5 total prizes. The top and overall shorts come in quite a few sizes, an alpha layer for classic avatars. Also, the top and shorts can be worn separately.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Voluptuous, Fitmesh (s,m,l), Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Venus)
