Welcome to the Sun


Freespirits

Namaste Fellow Fab Free Flower Children, and welcome back to the blog! Spring is officially here and the dollarbie Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute had me feeling like a free-spirit so I grabbed my guy Blue once again for a groovy adventure. It was a lot of fun teaming up with him again to try and capture the feeling of such an iconic time period. His tie-dye shirt, and Pru’s long skirt and halter top are both part of the same hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute.  I hope you enjoy this 1 linden Boho Hunt gift as much as we did.

His Tie-Dye Shirt – Nothing says “Free Spirit” more than tie dye if you ask me. This long-sleeve tee is the gift for the guys in the Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars. To get your copy just look for the Boho Hunt object, a cute little llama, at Fukin’ Cute and purchase it for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Nardcotix David, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Niramyth Aesthetic, Slink Male, TMP, Absolute Creations Adam

Her Skirt & Halter Top – Something about the green and white mandala-like pattern on this outfit by Fukin’ Cute just feels like spring. The outfit is the female part of the 1L Boho Hunt gift at Fukin’ Cute. With this outfit you’ll get the skirt and top in several sizes. I like the idea of being able to wear the top and skirt separately. All you have to do is find the Boho Hunt llama and purchase it for 1 linden to get your copy.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Hint – “…and she’s climbing the stairway to heaven.” – Led Zeppelin

Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’ve been fishing! Of course I mean 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Their current “Fish 4 This” outfit was just too cute to pass up. Not to mention the fact that you can score a full head to toe look with different color choices for several of the pieces. Also, there are options that make this look suitable for Classic avatars. The following blurb is a quick “how-to” for those new to 7Seas Fishing. I’ve posted it before, but figured I’d post it again just incase someone needed the information. If you’ve already figured the fishing thing out, just skip that part.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

“That Magical Night” Outfit 

Like most of the Fish4This outfits at Sn@tch, this one includes everything you see in the photo, just about. These items are all free, as long as you have your 7Seas Fishing Rod. There are 21 total pieces, including the top with bra in an Omega applier, and system layers, 6 mesh skirts, the black tights in Omega appliers, mesh boots (alpha layer and shoe base fished separately), jewelry, and the hairstyle shown in 3 colors. Also, each of the mesh skirts come with the following size options: Standard Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Fine, Curvy), and EBody.

Here are the details!

Hair – #taketomiWEST – Aishwarya – The Hills
Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face
Skin – Essences – Lora (Genus)
Head Jewels – Sn@tch  – 20 :::Sn@tch Sashi Jewels (Nose Attach)::: – Free Fishing Prize / 100L Rod Required

A Little Old Place Where We Can Get Together

To the Moon and Back

Hello There Fab Free’rs, welcome back to the blog! The Gacha Garden event has started. So needless to say I have a gorgeous bohemian furniture and décor set, complete with the house for everything to go inside to share with you. I’m not often much of a “gacha” person, but I do like gachas as a way to get beautiful furniture and décor pieces. This set is by none other than Petite Mort. I’ve always been a fan of the boho style in both clothing and furniture. This set is just 50 lindens per play at Gacha Garden. Petite Mort also added an exclusive prize set of houseplants (not pictured) to this set that is awarded after 20 pulls. The seating, and the Rare bed all have PG couples and individual poses. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key for this “Love Shack” set below so you can get a second look. Happy Gacha-ing!

Just a Wish

Just a Wish
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Did you know that Sn@tch has a new 7Seas Fishing outfit out? I got notice of this gorgeous set the other day and had to try my luck. The skirt alone was enough to grab my attention. However, I have to say I am very much impressed with the way the skirt and the sweater both look on. All the pieces to this very gypsy boho style look are lovey really, even though I chose to show just the skirt and sweater in my photo. First, if you have never been fishing with the 7Seas Fishing rod before I’ll give you a quick rundown.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Moonchild

This “Fish for This” outfit from Sn@tch has several pieces. You can score a complete head-to-toe look. You’ll end up reeling in individual pieces of the outfit one at a time. Items like the skirt and top which come in several sizes will be pulled in by color so all size options are included. When I said several pieces are up for grabs, I meant it. There are 24 pieces total including hair, jewelry, and shoes! There are also system layers for classic avatars. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at the complete “Moonchild” outfit by Sn@tch. The mesh skirt and sweater both come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Hourglass, Physique) bodies.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Wasabi // Sia Mesh Hair – Basics
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Vanya
Face Tattoos – { Speakeasy } : Fear – 1L on the Marketplace

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Slink, Maitreya

Here are the details, Enjoy!

So thanks again and always for being here. Mush and gush aside, I do have some lovely gifts to share with you!

Amulet

The proverbial icing on the cake for this look would have to be this FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer.

The “Gossamer Jewellery” group is FREE to join, so don’t hesitate to pick up this beautiful FREE gift.

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Starry Night \\ Updo – Ombre

Skin – Essences – Thea (Catwa & Omega) – Currently @Kustom 9

Head –  CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Stay Wild Flower Child

Flower Child
Hey There Fab Free’rs I’m so glad you’re here! I’m feelin’ a little bohemian today in these fabulous group gifts I came across. I have to tell you, I also feel like I’ve been unintentionally shop-stalking Love lately. We seem to end up at the same stores for our freebie finds. I think that means we both have excellent taste! I picked up these hella cute sunnies at Scandalize not realizing Love had done some Fab Free style shopping at Scandalize herself recently. See what she found in her Ray of Sunshine post. Knowing I wanted to play up the retro feel of these over-sized sunglasses, I also picked up this halter top at Sexy Princess. Finally having always been a sucker for a cute tattoo, I just had to add in the March group gift from Aurica. Ultimately I am pretty pleased with the end result of these gifts all worn together, I hope you like them too!

Good Day Sunshine 

Sunglasses are far and away my favorite accessory. These FREE group gift sunglasses are available at Scandalize. They come in pink (shown) and red color variations and are equipped with re-size scripts for easy fitting. The Scandalize group is FREE to join. You’ll find this gift on the second floor along with several previous group gifts.

Stay Wild 

I think I must be eager for warmer weather, it seems I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed a lot of warm weather styles on the blog lately. This top from Sexy Princess called out to me. It said “Pru, you need me in your closet!” lol I live in a place where it’s hot more often than not, so halter tops are almost always in fashion.  This group gift is not only super cute, it’s completely FREE at Sexy Princess. It’s also just one of the two group gifts I saw available. The top comes in fitmesh sizes, standard mesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya Lara, and one for Slink. The Sexy Princess group is also FREE to join.

Flower Child

How cute is this blue floral tattoo from Aurica?! I love the look of the bright blue flowers. They remind me of those antique china patterns. The applier set is the FREE group gift for March at Aurica. The applier hud is set up to work with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies and hands. There’s also a note in the package about how to get the tattoo to work with bento hands. The Aurica group is currently FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available. Included among the still available gifts is the New Years Zen post I did at the beginning of the year.

Here are the details, enjoy!
