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
Manicure – {WitchCraft} Midnight Nails + Polish – Currently @Mystial Market
Cat – –Pixicat– Bastet.Sphynx RARE
Floral Wall – LOVE – Tall Wall Foliage Pack – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market

For Those You Wish to Entice

For Those You Wish to Entice

When one requires a little something special to entice or reward, one can usually find something quite lovely in SL to fit the occasion.  I may just have found a little somethin’ somethin’ that fits the bill for just such a special occasion!

SL Hawt

There’s a little mini hunt going on at Kaleidoscope Island!  A bunch of stores got together and have provided super cute 5L prizes that are, as you might have guessed quite hot!  The SL Hot Hunt is going on for the next little while inside the building you will land in.  Just look for the little red puffy words that say “hot” and you’ll get yourself a whole bunch of cute prizes.  I grabbed one of the 5L prizes by Amataria (sized for Maitreya), and I’d say it’s pretty intense.  There’s a whole bunch of hotness waiting for you at the SL Hot Hunt, so tp over!

Happy Enticing!

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Tattoo – The Ivory Rose – I&R moth & moon tattoo
Dress – Oubliette– Mystic Flora Dress – Currently @Ostara’s Altar

Witchery Brewing

Witchery Brewing

I’m just brewing up a bit of magic here in the backyard.  I promise it’s nothing to worry about, I’m just doing my darndest to pretend I’m a hedge witch brewing up healing potions.  The best I’ve managed to muster is a very passable iced tea.  Ahwell, I should probably leave it to the professionals, but at least I look cute, right?

Gothic Glam

I spent a bit more time over at the Gothic Garage Sale this week, and I delved a little deeper into the 5L hunt they’ve got going on right now.  As I made my rounds, I found this really pretty head chain by The Little Bat.  It comes with a rather extensive HUD that is filled with different little designs for the amulet.  Totally cute.  I also found this dress by 1313 Mockingbird lane that hugs my curves and gives me a bit of a 90’s vibe.  You can’t go wrong at the low price of 5L – just keep an eye out for all the little black cats on the sim, cuz there’s loads to grab!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Sending you magic vibes!

She’s the Glitter Witch

She's the Glitter Witch

There are days when you need a little magic to get through everything, and then there are days when magic is all around you.  I’m not talking about sparks going off and puffs of smoke, but the magic that is inherent in a perfect cup of tea, or the way the sun glints on the snow.    Don’t you love those days?

A Bit Witchy

I love a good witchy tank top.  I mean, I love anything witchy, but the point I’m trying to make remains.  One of my fave designers, Secret Oktober, is participating in the Gothic Garage Sale, and as an awesome bonus they’re taking part in a 5L hunt.  Just look around for the little black cats, and you’ll have a boatload of fun (and affordable) gifts, including this lovely witchy tank top (sized for Maitreya bodies).  Nice or what?

Magic Tears

Oh glitter, my old friend.  Me and glitter go way back, and we’re not quitting each other any time soon.  This magical trail of sparkly tears are a free group gift over at Pout!  Just climb upstairs and nip into the gift room.  Join the group for free, and you’ll find all sorts of awesome goodies!  These glittery tears come with an Omega applier for convenience!

I wish you all magical days filled with glitter, donuts and hot chocolate.

Keep Calm

Keep Calm

Hello Fab Free’rs! Does any one know what day it is? I am feeling the hectic side of the holidays and sometimes I don’t know if I am coming or going! Luckily I have you guys, some good friends, and a cup of hot tea to remind me to slow down a minute and relax. I also get to take the time to share with you more fantastic Cart Sale finds and a fun addition from the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt.

The Sweater & Boots – Even my shoes are telling me to be calm today! These boots by De’Fient Unicorn are available at The Cart Sale and the best part (in my opinion) is the message on the sole of the shoe. It reads “Keep Calm and Activate Unicorn Power.” These shoes come in Maitreya and Slink sizes, and include a color change hud with 5 preset options. Also at the De”Fient Unicorn Cart Sale booth is this pretty playful sweater dress. I chose to wear it with jeans because, baby it’s cold outside! It comes in several mesh sizes and has a texture change hud with 5 patterned/graphic options to choose from. Also, this item has an alpha layer and is suitable for classic avatars!

Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ebody, TMP, Fitmesh (XS-XL), Model M, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) Ocacin, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – This cute pink wire reindeer antler headband is one of several 5 linden Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt prizes at Oleander. Each of the 5 prizes includes 2 head accessories. There are two types of headbands, and fuzzy earmuffs to be found. You just need to find the “hidden in plain sight” little blue stars at the Oleander shop. I added a copy of the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt key for Oleander below. Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Contradiction

A Contradiction

Sometimes I feel like a good contradiction in terms is just what I need.  Maybe something like “he gave her another first kiss” – or maybe something slightly less thought-provoking, like pairing a puffer jacket with a cocktail dress.  I’ve always enjoyed mixing it up just a little to incite conversation!

Bow Down

Queenz has a really awesome group gift out this month – and it’s this gorgeous dress.  I wore it during my wanderings in SL, and got quite a few compliments.  The strap coils up and about your neck in a very pleasing way, making things visually interesting.  It comes with an HUD to change to five different colours (I went with a dark purple) and is completely free!  I just joined the Queenz group for FREE and clicked on the vendor.  There are a whole bunch of other cool gifts there too, so make sure you grab them all!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya

Bundle Up

It’s getting cold up here in the Northern marches, and I wouldn’t want my avi to die of consumption, now would I?  Luckily, there’s a really cute 5L gift for everyone out at Tatiko.  There are several different options for the colours on the jacket in the HUD, even some Christmassy looks.  Head on over to Tatiko and bundle up!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Who doesn’t love a good contradiction in terms?

Fly Away With Me

FabFree: Fly Away With Me

Hello there Fabulouses! Today I bring you sweet, sweet news of the free and affordable!  I put together a little outfit with a 5L dress, free earrings and free hair, which I will tell you about below 🙂

The 5L Dress

If you happen to have 5L jingling around in your SL pockets, click over the the z00m marketplace store, and check out the Azenha Dress!  This dress is fitted for Maitreya and comes with a texture change HUD including 6 texture options.  While you are in there, check out their other listings – because there are quite a few low priced items.  Note – The sweater is an addition from my inventory and is not included.

No One Will Know –  Free Hair

None of your friends will ever believe this long wavy hairstyle was free…  I was lucky enough to stumble upon and “L” for the Tara hairstyle in the Brunettes pack at Little Bones on the lucky board.  You don’t need to be in the Little Bones group to participate in the lucky boards, and there are rotating hairstyle prizes in a variety of colour packs!

Accessorize For FREE

With my hair tucked so daintily behind my ear, I had no choice but to find a pretty pair of earrings to accessorize with, and stopped in at Elle Boutique.  There, I found the Greenly Earrings that come with a massive texture change HUD for metals and flower colours.  These earrings will match with everything, and they are available as a free group gift with a free group join!  The vendor ad is shown below so you can see the detailing close up 🙂

Properly Spoiled

Properly Spoiled

I used to hate when people used to call others “spoiled”.  It was only recently that I started calling myself that.  You realise with time that there are those who have way less than you, or whose circumstances are worse than yours, or perhaps even that they don’t have anyone who will check up on them.  In that sense, I’m super spoiled, so I wear my t-shirt today with pride!

Spoil Me

My adorable cropped tee is a Fab Free Group Gift from Tiar.  It’s completely free to all members of the Fab Free inworld group, so don your tag and be spoiled!  I love the colours – anything vaguely unicorny makes me happy!  If you’d rather go a bit darker though, there’s an HUD to change the top to black (or pink – of course!).

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP

Cropped Up

The cropped jeans I’m wearing today are a sweet find by HashTag on Marketplace – only 5 Lindens for a pair of artfully ripped jeans that I’ll probably wear with everything this summer!  They fit my Maitreya body perfectly, but if you have another body I’d give it a try and use your alphas to see if they fit you too.  I’d say that’s a steal!

Go spoil yourselves, my darlings!

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!
