Looking for a Warm Summer Breeze

Where Music Meets the Ocean

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s good to be back home after camping.  It was so, so cold there, and the pupster and I just had to find some summer time temperatures on SL when we got back.  It actually snowed a bit on Memorial Day.  Now for Love’s neck of the woods, that might not be so unusual, but for our part of the world, that is highly unlikely!  Fortunately, the Lighthouse Oasis sim had just what we needed, and Ambient Fashion provided the cutest summery shirt for our ocean side adventure.  I picked up this halter top as a hunt prize in the Red Diaries Hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Lovely Lavender

In addition to coming in one of my favorite colors, the Slaren Halter also features an unusual component created from four black bands connecting the shoulder strap to the neckline.  Black rimmed grommets ensure the cords stay securely fastened.  The right shoulder and the strap around the back of the neck are more traditional, so I decided to pull my hair back to show off the unique left side.  A figure-hugging fit and realistic fabric texture round out the shirt.  The designer thoughtfully included versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars inside the hunt folder, so there’s something for everyone in the package.  All you have to do to add a copy to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a book with a Red Shoe Diaries cover, and pay the 1 Linden dollar fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

‘Till now I always got by on my own

'Till now I always got by on my own

I don’t know if this is something that I should admit as a FabFree blogger, but I usually avoid hunts. I have nothing against them – you can get some really fabulous stuff through hunts and I’m sure that they’re fun for some people. But see, the thing is…I am really, really, really horrible at hunting. Really. So bad. I’m impatient and whiny and you won’t like me when I do hunts. So as a general rule, I don’t hunt. But there are always exceptions and so here we are, with me showing you a hunt prize.

The Day I Hunted

I saw this super cute romper on the FabFree group photo pool on Flickr and knew that it needed to be mine. If you haven’t joined our group on Flickr then you really should, people show some really great stuff and you can add your pictures of free stuff too and give me ideas of what to blog! Anyway, how cute is my romper? It is the Dumpster Dive Hunt free prize from Ambient. The texture is really lovely and I love the cute little belt, but my favorite part is the detail along the top edge. Sooooo adorable. There is a hint giver out front and it wasn’t too hard to find. If I can find it, then you can find it! I think every size ever is included, there is:

  • eBody Classic & Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Classic sizes L-XXS

Always Posing

So I don’t always hunt but good luck getting me to stop posing. And when the poses are free? Even better! This cute sit pose is a free gift from K&S at the Dubai event. There are a few other gifts to be found there as well from other stores so be sure to wander around a bit.

On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!
