Hello Summer!

Summer Bright

Hello Fab Free and hello summer! The Women Only Hunt 6 started yesterday and while I haven’t picked up all the gifts quite yet, I did pick up all the WOH6 gifts at Crystal Store. Yes, I said all the gifts. Crystal Store has 6 total hunt gifts that are 10 lindens each. For this hunt you’ll be searching for a bright yellow sun with a smiley face on it. The Women Only Hunt lasts from now until June 30th. I’ve added a copy of the hunt prize key from Crystal Store so you can get a better look at each of the prizes.

There’s nothing quite like crisp white fabric in summer, and I love this cute head-to-toe look from Crystal Store. The full set includes the top, skirt with belt, shoes, sunglasses, headphones, and ice cream cone (not shown in my photo). The sunglasses, and headphones can be sized via touch menu, and the ice cream has a bento hold pose. The skirt, top, and shoes are sized for Maitreya and Belleza bodies only. 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.

Hi Fab Free, question, is it still called breakfast if it’s not morning? I don’t know about you, but I could eat bacon, sausage, and eggs any time of day. Add some fresh fruit to the mix and that makes it perfect. This scrumptious looking meal, and my tied tee are both available at The Cart Sale priced too fabulously to pass them up. Keep reading for all the delicious details, and check the end for full credits. Lastly, enjoy your breakfast! 😛

Dark Knight Décor 

My mouth-watering meal including the coffee and cutlery are from Dark Knight Decor’s booth at The Cart Sale. Along with this traditional breakfast, there are a handful of other equally detailed food items. There’s also a few kitchen décor bits and bobs to be had. The breakfast set I picked up is just 25 linden, and will look fantastic on your table, or balanced on the arm of your seaside chair.

Dark Water Designs 

An iconic warm weather wardrobe stable has to be a tied tee. This baby blue and white top by Dark Water Designs is also available at The Cart Sale. There are several spring-like shades available for 25 linden each. These tops are not only cute, they come in several sizes, and have an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (V1, V2), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza Freya

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Laundry Day

 

Laundry Day
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I call this look “when it’s laundry day but you still wanna look cute for Easter.” hahaha Really, I had a lot of fun with a few more finds from The Rotten Egg Hunt, and this fun “Need Laundry” pose by DANU. I picked up this cute top at The Rotten Egg Hunt, it’s by Secret Oktober. Also while at The Rotten Egg Hunt I picked up a really pretty crescent shaped bindi by Valika Rituals. Keep reading for all the details about these fabulous finds. Also, Aline’s sweet sleepy self has been doing some Rotten Egg Hunting, to see what she found check out her post “Sleepy Times.”

The Pose – This fun laundry pose is a Marketplace find by DANU. It’s just 37 linden and it includes a pose-ball pose, and the laundry basket prop. The basket comes white, but I tinted it darker. I also needed to shrink it down to fit between Pru’s hand and hip, which was easy to in edit mode since the basket does not have any scripts. Have fun, and do your laundry!

The Top – Secret Oktober has 5 versions of this cropped bunny sweater at The Rotten Egg Hunt. I was excited to find the number 5 egg and get the bunny with the spider. It felt a little bit like Easter and a little bit like Halloween, which suits my exceedingly eclectic tastes. lol These tops are just 10 linden each, and come in a Maitreya fit only.

The Bindi – This pretty little bindi by Velika Rituals is one of the dollarbie Rotten Egg Hunt prizes. At just 1 linden, it is way too nice to pass up. I’m loving accessories that are free of scripts like this one, sometimes simple really is best. You can resize, and even change the color of this bindi by using the edit menu. Just don’t forget to make a copy first!

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

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:

Love and a Cat


Love and a Cat

Hellooo Fab Free! I missed you! I had a busy weekend and just a busy February in general, but it has been good and productive so I can’t complain. As February begins to come to an end, so do most of the February hunts. One such hunt is the Cupid’s Crush Hunt. This adorable little tank top by Ghee is one of the Cupid’s Crush Hunt prizes. I also couldn’t resist the chance to share with you the 10 linden offer at the Truth or Dare Affair by EscalateD. Keep reading for all the info about these two fabulous finds.

The Hair – Spring is on the way and I love this shaggy short hairstyle for warmer months. This hairstyle is the 10 linden item by EscalateD at the Truth or Dare Affair event. It comes with 3 specialty mini huds to change the texture/hair color. The Truth or Dare Affair ends February 28th, so don’t wait.

The Shirt – The Cupid’s Crush Hunt also ends in just a few days on February 28th. It is a 2 linden hunt, so all the prizes are just 2 linden. This cute tank top is the CCH prize by Ghee. It reads “All you need is Love and a Cat” and I couldn’t agree more with that statement. haha This 2 linden hunt prize comes in several mesh sizes and has an alpha layer included making it wearable for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Hunt Hint: “What’s up Pussycat”

As Jolly As I Get

Jolly As I Get
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here. So I kind of don’t want to admit it, but this sweater by Oubliette suits me so well. *laughs* Not that I don’t get excited, but I’m rarely one to get super outwardly excited. So I could be totally thrilled about something and not express it the way most would expect. This sweater is one of 2 group gifts I picked up today, the second being a 300 linden gift card at Go&See which I used to get this skin for free. In addition I also picked up these earrings by SynCo for free at Winter’s Hollow. Keep reading and I’ll let you know all the info you need about each of these fabulous finds!

The Sweater – Sometimes you just need a little cheekiness in your wardrobe, or at least I do. This sweater is a current group gift at Oubliette. The Petite Mort/Oubliette group is currently free to join, so don’t miss out! Also, there’s an equally fun, if slightly more sinister Krampus sweater waiting over at Petite Mort that you can pick up for free with the same group tag. These novelty sweaters come in several mesh sizes. In addition I want to mention that gift cards are 50% off for a limited time!

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

The Skin/Gift Card – Right now the Go&See group is just 50 linden to join, and there is a limited time group gift 300 Linden gift card available until December 25th. The group gift card vendor is at the Go&See main store, right next to the redelivery terminal. That said, you could either wear your gift card and add the balance to your store credit then save it for later, or do like I did and pick up 3 of the group only 99 linden promo skins for free. There is a row of group promo 99 linden skins at Go&See. The one Pru is wearing is December’s promo named Eva. Next to the vendor for Eva there are specific instructions posted on how to get the skin for 99 linden, and how to purchase using your store credit. Follow the instructions carefully. You will need to be wearing the Go&See group tag! Eva comes in a Genus Project head applier, with Maitreya and Omega body appliers. Other promo skins come in Catwa appliers, and or Omega appliers. Please be sure to try the free demos before you purchase! Additionally, there are male skins at Go&See.

The Earrings – These tapered studs are a free gift by SynCo at Winter’s Hollow. There is no group needed, just pay the gift box under the Christmas tree 1 linden and be instantly refunded 1 linden. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you choose from preset metallic color choices for 3 parts of the earrings. Also, the same hud will allow you to resize them. I would definitely consider these claw-like studs to be unisex. Winter’s Hollow is open until December 31st.

Here are the details, enjoy!
