Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

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

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

Hey Fab Free! Did you know that the Steam Hunt is going on right now? It is a super fun hunt which on for the whole month of March. It is one of the longest-running hunts in SL and it’s also the only steampunk-themed hunt left on the grid. Yesterday I did some hunting at the Steam Expo, where there is a sim-wide hunt game. All of the free décor gifts shown here are hunt prizes you can get from this gear hunt game.

The Gear Game

The Steam Hunt/Expo’s gear hunt game is really fun! What you do is teleport to the start location of the hunt where you will grab a gear games HUD on the wall. Unpack the HUD and attach it to your screen. Now you will run around all over the expo sim and look for the bronze coloured gears, and click them with your HUD on. The bronze or copper-coloured gears will give you points, and if you click silver gears that will take away your points- so don’t click the silver ones! The gears just pop up randomly, so look all around!  You want to accumulate as many points as you can and you can check your point count on the HUD.

Points for Prizes

Once you have lots of points, you can exchange them for prizes. Each prize costs from 1 to 30 points each, and it is quite easy to win enough points to get all the prizes around the sim. In different creators’ booths around the sim, there will be writing in yellow over the prizes which states how many points each one costs. The HUD and the game is completely free to play, so whatever prizes you get will be a free addition to your inventory. There are 35 prizes in total that I could find.

Steam Hunt XV Store-Wide Hunt

Note that the gears game hunt is a sim-wide hunt in addition to their grid-wide hunt. The gears game hunt featured in this blog post is part of the hunt, but they have a larger grid-wide hunt too! So there are basically two hunts part of the Steam XV Expo/Hunt event this month. If you want to do their grid-wide hunt please visit the Historical Hunt Ltd. website for a list of stores. The hunt prizes are available to find until March 31st. The grid-wide hunt is also a 0L, completely free hunt.

Have fun hunting, Fab Free!

Healthy Life

Healthy Life

Hey there Fab Free’rs, happy Friday! In my experience I feel at my best when I take the time for some self-care. Tentacio wants us to be the best version of our Second Life selves with their “Healthy Life” décor set. While you’re at it, you can look the part with this cropped camo top by Chic Moda. The set from Tentacio, and the top from Chic Moda are Lucky Letter board prizes. Keep reading for more details on both lucky finds, or check the list of credits at the end of the post.

Tentacio

There are multiple lucky letter boards at Tentacio with cool prizes like this “Healthy Life” set. The best part, there’s no group required to participate. This set includes grouped “healthy” food and lifestyle décor as well as a hold-able version of the berries and the pink water bottle. All you need to do to get your copy of this free set is head over to Tentacio and slap the board when your letter pops up.

Chic Moda 

Chic Moda has 3 lucky letter boards, and one of them has this cute little cropped top. It comes in the camo pattern shown with the word “Fierce” in script across the front. That’s a label I am completely on board with! The Chic Moda group is required for the lucky boards, and there is a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Feelin’ the Good Vibes

BeFunky-collage 1

Hey, Fab Free!

Today I am showcasing two fabulous gifts you can get as group gifts for free through the Fabulously Free in SL group.

A Cozy Lounge Set

I added the cute lounge sofa and wall art “Good Vibes” by Partners in Crime in my living room. It is really cute and matched my light blue wall colour perfectly! I also love the print it comes with- it adds some good vibes to my house, which is my happy place here in SL.

Vintage Vibes

I decided to lounge around in this comfy outfit made by Sweet Willows, called Vintage set. The set includes an HUD with four colour options: green, yellow, and a red-purple. It has a bit of a boho and vintage feel to it at the same time, plus I love the botanical pattern of it.

Sizes Included

Belleza: Freya, Isis
Maitreya
Legacy
Slink: Physique, Hourglass

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something wicked this way comes indeed, so one must get ready!  Dust off the creepy paraphernalia and light the fire under the cauldron because we’re about to have a good old fashioned haunting!

Minimal? More like Maximal…

There’s a fun little hunt going on at Minimal right now, and it’s all about decorating for Halloween!  Search around the sim for all the hidden bats (there are 10 in total) and pay each one 13 Lindens to grab the goodies hidden inside.  I’m showing you all 10 fun finds in my photo above, and I’m sure you’ll have a wicked time arranging it for all the trick or treaters!

Happy Haunting!

Dreaming in Vintage


Dreaming in Vintage

Calling all of my fellow Fab Free furniture and décor lovers! I cannot express to you how gorgeous the gacha set Oubliette has out at Gachaland is. The colors are rich, and the textures are lush. If you’re into deep jewel tones with a vintage eclectic feel, this set is for you. It includes all the furniture and decor items pictured, minutes the sweet sleeping corgi. This gacha by Oubliette is just 50 linden per play at Gachaland. I’ll include a photo of the gacha key below.

Image may contain: text and indoor

To go along with this setup, I also picked up the latest free group gift at Jian. I love this sweet sleeping corgi so much! He/she has a touch menu that lets you turn on or off a breathing animation, change between several preset fur choices for the puppy, and pick the color of the pillow. To get your copy of this adorable group gift just head over to Jian and join their group. Right now the Jian group is free to join. You’ll find this free gift and a handful of others waiting at the Jian main store.
