A ‘o ia!

A 'o ia!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

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.

Beachin’

Beachin'

You know what every Wednesday needs? Beach time! I had just hit the Cart Sale ( if you haven’t gone, why NOT??) and I saw that Dark Water Designs had these great swim suits for both the guys and us girls and I thought, “Yep… the beach is calling!”  So I grabbed the bargain suits, just 10L each and rang Gabe up!

Tropical Cocktail Time!

This is the ‘Cocktail’ one piece in Merlot. As with everything from Dark Water Design, every detail is perfect and the fit is spot on. You get two versions of the suit: one with this tone on tone design and one solid colored. Not only do you get the suit… You get a recipe for a summery cocktail. I’m going to try the one included with “Merlot” asap! Of course, please enjoy the cocktails responsibly and only if you’re over 21! 😉

Gabe’s “Beach Shorts’ are also just 10L on the Dark Water Designs Cart. There are four suits for the guys. Two tropical flower prints and two camo prints. Again, the design and build are perfect. I like that they’re sorta sexy but still modest.

Happy Hunting

Happy Hunting

What a weekend! I know it’s Tuesday but my weekend leaked over into Monday. Don’tcha love it when that happens? But it’s back to “work” here at FabFree, and the ladies and I have a ton of great stuff lined up for y’all.

Happy Hunter

That’s me! I had to hurry over to MHUnique when the notice of a mini store hunt came across my desk. And I was not disappointed! There are 25 prizes set at 1L each ‘hidden’ all over the store. They aren’t hidden like a normal hunt though. They are scattered all over the store on boards. Not hidden… but you do want to stroll all over and look at everything. It’s the perfect hunt if you don’t really like hunts…..Anyway…. I picked this super cute set,’Lianna’ for just a bit of a wander and one little Linden. Each piece is a separate and each comes with a HUD for ten color choices.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Key Thing

Heyya FabFree-ers! Happy Weekend!

Key to my heart

 

I’m using my weekend off time to do some Hunting and I found this cute casual look I had to share. Thanks to the 1L ‘Key to my Heart’ Hunt from Perfect Seduction, I found a new to me designer : Kustom Kulture.  And that’s where I found this great casual Valentine’s sweater. The ‘Off Shoulder Sweater’ comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and includes appliers for Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies.

Key to my heart

My cute purse is from Grumble. This is the heart Purse in red and it’s also on the Key to my Heart prize list. The details are really nice and smooth and it comes with a hold animation.

The Key To My Heart Hunt runs until February 16th for your hunting pleasure.

The cold never bothered me anyway

I am revisiting the Let it Snow Hunt today. Which is easy to do because there is just a ton of great prizes to find in this year’s Hunt.

The Cold never bothered me anyway

I saw this “Winter Blue Hooded Gown” from Country Charm and had one thought: ELSA!  The gown comes in the standard five Mesh sizes . It also comes with an optional hair ( not shown) for the hood in black, brown and white/blonde. My beautiful necklace is also on the Let it Snow Hunt and it’s from Red Rose Jewelry. This is the Silver Stars with purple diamonds necklace. It comes with a resize script for that perfect fit.

The cold never bothered me anyway

The Let it Snow Hunt runs until December 31 and features over one hundred stops, so I know you’ll find something… or lots of somethings to love!

Go Into The Woods

Into The Woods FullThis is such a fun and busy time of year! There are so many hunts, advents, events, and gifts all over Second Life it is genuinely hard to keep track of everything. Now I bet you’re curious about the props and scenery in the photo? I know I would be!

One of the many hunts taking place in SL right now is the Into The Woods Hunt. This is a magical mystical hunt with fanciful gifts. The hunt is a 2 linden hunt, making each of the prizes a steal of a deal. You can learn more about this fantastic hunt here. The hunt prize at Come Soon really inspired this entire look. Their gift is the pose, scenery, and props show in the above photo. Everything, the background, the foliage, the campfire (which can be turned off or on, and has access controls), the owl, and the lantern (which can also be turned off or on with a click) are all included in this 2 linden hunt gift at Come Soon! I have to say I was really surprised to see the entire set-up was included. You won’t want to miss this generous hunt prize.

Another of my favorites from the Into The Woods Hunt is this beautiful tattoo from Dita Couture. For just 2 lindens you get the system layer tattoo, as well as appliers for slink hands, Maitreya, Omega compatible parts, Belleza, and TMP. This upper body Tattoo from Dita Couture is well worth the hunt, and just as pretty in the back as it is in the front. Not to mention I happen to love the owls on the upper arms! 😀

When I saw the preview photo of the hunt prize from L’Armoire I had to have it in my virtual jewelry box. I love the look of this pretty necklace, and the shimmery turquoise stone is beautiful. The little details are really lovely, I was genuinely excited to find this Into The Woods Hunt prize at L’Armoire. Into The Woods OutfitOne of the many shops doing advent gifts this year is Entice. Each day group members can get a FREE gift by wearing their group tag and buying the present under the tree for 1 linden, which as always is immediately refunded. Just look for the balloon that marks the gift for that day. The Entice group is FREE to join. Don’t have a group space, or you missed a day but still want the gift? No problem! Everyone is able to purchase current gifts or past gifts for just 25 lindens. I picked up this sassy little dress under the tree at Entice, it’s the Day 5 gift so you can still grab it for just 25 lindens. The dress is fully mesh and has a color change hud that allows you to change the dress color and the belt color.

Here are the details, Enjoy! Happy Hunting!
