Fluttering Down the Path

Fluttering Down the Path

Here we go down a gentle path of the countryside with nary a care in the world.  How nice it is to spend some time in nature…

Hunting Again

There’s a quick and fun (and utterly free) hunt going on at Flamingos right now.  Just look around the newly renovated store for the little lollipops hiding all around.  They’re not too hard to find – and that’s my favourite kind of hunt!  I like hunting, just not if I have to remove my eyeballs to rest them after a few hours of searching!  Anyway, this one is painless, and you’ll find plenty of free gifts, just buy them for 0L and they’re yours.  I found the July dress which is very sultry and has some great details, especially on the back.  You’ll also find an extensive HUD for maximum colour options!

Icing on the Cake

Icing on the Cake

Ok, I’m giving in just a little.  Perhaps the last vestiges of Autumn are falling away, and we’re truly getting into the colder months.  I’m celebrating this seasonal change by heading over to the perennially lovely Luane’s World, where they’ve made the switch over to Winter, and as always, it’s gorgeous.  Plenty of scope for the imagination, and loads of nooks and crannies to explore.

Still Hunting

Allison told you the other day about the Xmas Hunt at Petite Mort & Oubliette, and I couldn’t resist doing a bit of hunting myself.  I love when they do these!  I looked for the little Christmas presents hidden on the sim, and found this amazing dress that immediately put me in the mood for eggnog (well, maybe not…but…you get the idea).  It’s just 10L for this lovely number, and the sleeves will have me wishing for them in RL forever.  You’ve got until Dec 11th to hunt it out!

Fallen Leaves & Frost

Fallen Leaves & Frost

Happy FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt Season!  We’re back with another of our hunts, this one heralding the onset of cooler weather here in the Northern marches.  You’ll find all sorts of fun items, and we’re so pleased to show you some of the fabulous prizes.  Let’s hop in!

Hunting Fun

I went to three different locations today to show off some of the free prizes you can pick up.  First stop was Ruxy for this appealing velvety dress.  Isn’t it pretty?  There’s a second prize at Ruxy as well, so look out for the FabFree glowing rainbow throughout the store.

The decor I put together is just so beautiful and really feels haunting and chilly to me in a magical kind of way.  The grasses and bushes all come from Lunaria and they are just so incessantly lovely.  I really love decorating my home sim (and the info hub!) with Larinda’s beautiful grasses and trees.  The little lit bushes behind are really cute too, and they’re all free with a bit of hunting.

My last stop today was Raindale.  I have always loved the whimsical touch of the furnishings from this store.  It makes me think of Elves.  I’m pretty sure Galadriel did most of her shopping at Raindale when she was furnishing her home in Caras Galadhon (yes, nerd moment…).  The swing, hammock and leaf-shaped boat behind me (check it in my second photo) are all free as well.

Have an awesome hunt,

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus…it’s Friday!  See, I made the work week disappear with my magical vibes.  Stay tuned for my next trick… a free dress!

The Magic Words

Hocus Pocus is back!  This is one of those truly different kind of events that makes me excited to be a part of Second Life.  Plus, there’s the possibility of getting free things, and that is also super awesome.  I made my way over to Pink Cream Pie and stood by the spell book (near the stairs) then said the magic words “Hocus Pocus” in local chat.  My magic was strong that day and this shiny dress was delivered to me for free!  You can try once a day, or if you can’t wait… you can pay 50L to grab the prize right away!

At Ease

At Ease

Ok y’all, I’m going to be real with you.  I don’t know what this look is really, but in some weird cavern of my mind, it works.  It’s like I’m some sort of half police chick, half soccer referee who just looks cool.  I’m making it happen.  You can’t stop me.

Binge-worthy

Binge Events have a cool free group gift at their headquarters for members of their free-to-join group.  This stripey top and matching pants (love the length on these) are great for a striking yet laid-back look.  There’s a little HUD to go with so you have 4 different colours for the top and three for the pants.  Nice!

To the Engine Room!

Another of Second Life Syndicate’s massive and super awesome events is underway right now:  Engine Room!  If you’re into all things steampunk, you must visit.  There are a whole pile of awesome free gifts at most booths too, so there’s lots to discover.  I grabbed this hat and goggles set by Gabriel (you can resize quite easily, so very unisex), and the earrings from AiiZawa that are in the shape of the moon (love!).  The SLS group is free to join, making all the goodies at this event completely free.

Wanted to take a sec to wish Shana Tova to all those celebrating the New Year tonight!
And if someone asks you how your year is going… you say…. “Shofar so good!”

Sorry,  I’ve been peddling that joke *EVERYWHERE*.

Art Lover

Art Lover

I am a lover of art in both RL and SL. I’m hanging out in the studio with a nice, piping hot chai tea latte. Although I look like I’m ready to go to an art gallery opening with all the fashionable finds I am wearing today…

Uber! Style!

I have a whole load of free gifts from the Uber Anniversary to share this morning. This event is filled with fashionable free finds. To do the event, go to each store on the Uber gifts list that Aline made for us all. It can be accessed here. If you have the time, do send her a thank you for this because her hard work compiling this list made it so much easier for everyone to find the gifts. You can grab the free gifts until September 22nd. You only have a week left to get the goods!

Free gifts from the 8th Uber Anniversary I am showing today are:

  • A pack of BOM lipsticks for Lelutka EvoX at Glam Affair
  • Heels from Breathe that fit Lara, Legacy, Reborn, Kupra, Legacy and Slink
  • A tea chai latte at Andika, which can be worn or delivered to others through a dispenser
  • Earrings and a necklace from EarthStones Jewelry
  • Sunglasses from Deep Static, which includes an extensive color-change hud to change the frames, sides, and shades

Make sure you check out all the past FabFree coverage of the Uber Anniversary before the event closes. The posts below show more free goodies for you all to get! You will be walking around in style and ready for the next big art event after you collect these fashionable presents.

A Little Fun From Alaskametro

I’m loving the deals I found at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, and I was delighted to see that Alaskametro has a 10L item out at their booth at the event. It’s inside the coconut.  100% of the donations for this item are given to Doctors Without Borders. This nail applier set includes a hud of tropical colours. I will admit that Aline’s love for Alaskametro’s products has totally worn off on me. There are so many shades and designs included in this set! Did you know that even if you use a BOM avatar you can wear omega nails if you have the omega kit installed in your body? They are so cool and I always enjoy using omega nails because they are easy to apply and use- they just apply onto the nails on your body. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival ends on September 18th, so you only have a couple of days left to grab this great nail set for only 10L. You can see an image of the textures included with this nail applier set below.  Note that the set includes toenail appliers as well.

Sizes Included (Nail Appliers)

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Cinn
  • Chai

Thanks for reading, FabFree!

Renaming Tuesdays

Renaming Tuesdays

Ok, so Tuesdays are my least favourite day of the week.  Every other day seems to have an excuse for why it’s great, or why it’s terrible.  Like Mondays we all know are a bit of an ick, Wednesday is hump day, Thursday is allllmost Friday, Friday is Friday… and well, you know the rest.  Tuesday however – Tuesday just sits there and sticks its tongue out at you and defies to be classified.  So, because of that – I’ll proclaim this Tuesday to be store credit at Mossu day!

Don’t Delay!

Mossu are spoiling their group members with 300L in store credit for the next little while.  Their group is only 30L to join at the moment, so suuuper great deal.  Mossu makes some really pretty things, so I was excited when I heard the news.  I picked up this very pretty translucent dress (there are different transparency options in the HUD – so you can cover up….or…not) and the little bit of sparkle is totally giving me life.  It comes in at just 299L, so the perfect buy for your store credit.  You’ve got until August 23rd to pick it up, so head on over before you forget!  Oh, and don’t forget that there are also men’s items at Mossu, so let your dude friends know!

A Flower for Bees

062122 - A Flower for Bees 01

Today was a lovely day for a walk in the woods among wildflowers and bees. I was feeling bright and cheerful for this photoshoot. I am super excited to be joining the FabFree team! I must say a huge thank you for the opportunity! Since its very early days I’ve been an avid (although mostly silent) follower of FabFree and now I get to join in on the fun as a blogger!

Womenstuff Hunt

Have you done the Womenstuff Hunt yet? If not, why not?! Hurry hurry because it ends June 30th.  The group is just 50L to join, and you’ll get so many amazing prizes.  You can read all the details on how it works in Bring on the WomenStuff by Caroline Walker. Be sure you don’t miss these other posts featuring the awesome prizes from the hunt as well:

Now let’s talk about what I’m wearing from the hunt…

  • My vivid pink outfit is from Vulnus by owner Vᴜʟɴᴜs (vulnuscouture). The blouse and pants are two separate pieces that come together in the hunt object for free. They are made to fit Freya, Hg, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink bodies. Vulnus is one of the sponsors for the Womenstuff Hunt.
  • The free jewelry set is from ZanSarai of Luminesse. You can click the necklace or earrings to bring up a menu that allows you to change options such as brightness, size, shininess and glow. Since it comes unrigged, the resize option is super nice.
  • C’est la vie, owned by Larcoco Ragu (larcoco.mathy), has this lovely free headband as their hunt prize. It is unrigged with a resize script and comes with an HUD that allows you to choose between 12 plain and 12 patterned textures.
  • And the adorable little pink hearts on my cheeks are the free prize from Silent Alchemi of -Birth-. They are unrigged as well and come with a tintable version if you would like to have them in a different color. -Birth- is also a sponsor for the Womenstuff Hunt.

Check out a close up for details…

Space Babe time!  I don’t actually know what that means, but my glowing floating keyboard denotes that I’m the one who does mystical computery things and gets stuff done.  You know, the cool girl in the van hacking into whatever room the others are about the repel from the ceiling into.  Get it girl!

Catsuits Make Me Purr

This awesome catsuit is an excellent addition to my wardrobe.  I sometimes feel a bit spacey-utilitarian, or perhaps like I suddenly need to jump on a motorcycle.  Or even just be in a music video.  Whatever your need, you can make it happen for free at Grixdale.  If you look at their Saturday Sale display (behind the main counter) you’ll find this wearable demo for free right in the middle, just buy for 0L!  Don’t know how much longer it will be there, so get it while it’s hot!

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

I’m feeling Spring today deep down into my toes, FabFree!  Let’s get to frolicking among some flowering shrubbery while humming the Rite of Spring and searching for marshmallows in the shape of tiny animals.  Seems like the perfect time to do some questionable things, but when Spring Fever comes along, you just do what the muses tell you.

It’s Tradition!

I’m pretty sure that Safira gets in the Easter spirit every year with a bit of a pastel-themed hunt.  I’m always happy for a bit of (non-challenging) hunting, especially when I can get some really cute outfits out of it.  Safira have that in spades right now, with a whole pile of pretty dresses, lingerie, skirts, tops and more.  I went with the Mika top and Vany skirt, which had me feeling playful and coquette.  Each item on the hunt is just 15L so you can get something sweet for not too many lindens.   Just look for the eggs throughout the store!
