Why Not?!


Why Not?

My tank top asks “why?” but I like to ask “why not?.” For example, why not indulge in this delicious looking frozen orange confection by Andika, or the cute casual tank top by The Bold Lama? I can’t think of a single reason, especially when you consider the frozen orange is a free group gift at Andika, and the top is a dollarbie hunt prize at The Bold Lama. Keep reading for details about both of these fab finds.

Andika

I’m such a foodie sometimes, and SL food is no exception. I think these frozen oranges by Andika are not only very pretty to look at, they seem like they’d be fun to eat. haha The orange on the plate acts as a dispenser for a held version and the matching animated spoon. This free group gift at Andika comes in 3 color variations. Right now the Andika group is free to join. Also, there is at least one other free group gift currently available.

The Bold Lama

It is not lost on me that the Curiosity Hunt prize at The Bold Lama asks the question “why?.” The Curiosity Hunt is a dollarbie hunt that runs from now until the end of the month. This 1 linden hunt prize at The Bold Lama comes in the following sizes: Ocasin, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), EBody, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer.

Hunt Hint: Books aren’t the only way to satisfy curiosity.

Pin Up?

Pin Up?

I have a couple of my favorite things today. Comfortable, well-broken in jeans, a casual tee shirt and a cold ‘adult beverage.’  The best thing is I didn’t have to work too hard for two of them. Just 1 linden for the jeans and some hunt time for the tee.

Around the Grid

Around the Grid in Eighty Days is one of the bigger well known hunts in Second Life and the seventh annual hunt is in full swing until September 30th. That’s a good long time to hunt down some top notch prizes. Happily, there are a lot of good men’s items on the hunt along side the women’s fare. Like these perfect destressed jeans from ZFG. Just look for the red and yellow hot air balloon and a toss in one linden and they’re yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

I’m NOT sure I like the idea of Dumpster diving….

But… I really like this tee. This is the ‘Pin Up’ tee from The Sissy Bar and it’s the free prize for the Dumpster Diving Hunt. Luckily, I didn’t have to crawl in a dumpster to grab this great tee shirt. While you’re at The Sissy Bar looking for the tiny trash can… be sure to check out all the Hunts running and the past hunts shelves. TSB always has a solid selection of men’s items in their hunts. Something VERY much appreciated.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

A Rose in the Garden

A Rose in the Garden

After all the excitement of getting wayyyy lost and finding my way back home… I thought maybe I should stay in the back garden for a while. So I’m getting comfy and entertaining the cat this afternoon. And what’s more comfy than a soft baby tee and shorts and an old pair of sneakers?

Sweetest Rose in the garden

I was tickled to see one of my favorite stores listed in the designers for the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt.  And, as always, The Sissy Bar has served up the perfect hunt prize. This is the simply titles “ATG Hunt Tee and Shorts” and the set can be yours for a mere 1L when you hunt down the balloon it’s hidden in.

FabFree: Slugger

Good morning Fabulouses!  Today in my blog post, I am featuring a couple of 1L Marketplace finds that make for perfect summer staples!  We still have August left, don’t be pulling out your fall boots yet!

Not so basic, basic

Every girl needs a basic cropped black tank top in their inventory!  It goes with so many things, and you can’t go wrong for 1L in the TUSSAY marketplace store ;).  It’s well made with no cutting on my avatar with movement, so that’s a bonus!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • TMP

Open Denim Shorts

I bet you can’t believe these open denim shorts are just 1L, but they are!  These are the Angel Pink Vida Jean Shorts and you can find them priced at 1L in their Marketplace store. I have added a string bikini bottom under the shorts, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to – I just wanted to show that you can easily add it if you want!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

Beat the Heat


Beat the Heat

The Beached Bunny Hunt ends in just a few days. With that in mind I suggest heading over to Sevyn East and finding their little blue sand bucket before it’s gone. The BBH prize at Sevyn East is the perfect beachy set to beat the summer heat. The BBH prizes are just 1 linden, and this one includes the ruffled bikini I’m wearing and the transparent pink tote bag. The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

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

What I’m Wearing:

  • Hair – [DUE] Michelle
    Head – Catwa Koura
    Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
    Sunglasses – [Fetch] Miranda Sunglasses
    Swimsuit & Tote – Sevyn East – Erica Set – 1L BBH Prize

A Little Fun in the Sun

A Little Fun in the Sun

Can you believe this year is half way over? July is very nearly in the books. But you still have five days left to get all the July Hunts done. And you don’t want to miss out on all that loot, Right? Right!

Beach Sweet

The Beached Bunny Hunt is certainly one of those Hunts that you don’t want to lose out on. Not with such nifty things like this great one-piece. This is the “Xavia” suit from Prism. Of course, I picked to show it in this awesome purple print but you can choose any of the other five just-as-cool colors on the HUD. I love that this is a one piece suit. Not that I have anything against bikinis… but it’s really nice to see something cute and sexy but more on the modest side. Thanks, Jezzixa Cazalet!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

If anyone needs me, I’ll be on the beach building sand castles

FabFree: If anyone needs me, I'll be on the beach building sand castles

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  Previously on FabFree, we have seen Juli and Pru blog a couple of the prizes for the 9th Annual Beached Bunny Hunt, and I am returning to show off yet another one, that I thought was really cute.

A little about the hunt…

I am a bit of a cherry picker when it comes to hunts, and love when organizers put up a whole preview of what the prizes are before you take the time to go hunt them down (especially if there is a whole linden involved!!)  The Beached Bunny Hunt does have a prize preview along with hints and a graphic example of the hunt icon you are searching for (which is a blue sand bucket btw!)

Hopes Creations For The Beached Bunny Hunt 9

At Hopes Creations when you hunt down the blue sand bucket for the hunt and pay it 1L, you’ll have the Imogen Shorts in several mesh body sizes as well as a texture HUD that allows for three sweet summery prints.  I am displaying the white pair with a fun beachy print, but the other two are just as cute!!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy

Time is Fleeting

It's About Time

This is going to be fast one from me. I wanted to make a ‘quickie’ joke but Julianna forbid it. So I didn’t.  At any rate, this is the last twenty four hours of the Star Spangled Hunt put on by Sweet Intoxication. So if you want any of the 1L prizes, you’ll need to hurry.

About Time

This is the Tygren Shirt with the “Time Rose” pattern. It is the gentlemen’s prize on the very first stop on the Hunt: at Sweet Intoxication. I am rather impressed with the old school vintage tattoo look of the design and I foresee wearing it often. As I said, if you want to pick up this excellent shirt for yourself you need to hurry along before the Hunt ends tomorrow.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Welcome to my sanctuary, also known as the most recent group gift at MINIMAL. This backdrop by MINIMAL is not only gorgeous, it is free to all MINIMAL group members. It comes in 2 versions; one with side door openings like shown, and one with out. The MINIMLAL group is 50 linden to join.

Also, the sweet little dress I’m wearing is the free July group gift at WellMade. It has a color/texture change hud that lets you pick from 7 solid pastel colors for the top, and 7 watercolor-like floral prints for the skirt. Currently the WellMade group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. Don’t have group space? You can also pick this gift up on the Marketplace for 1 linden.

There are some designers here on the Grid that are “Go-To” shops. Not only are the items well built but they’re creative and fun. You can count on their Hunt prizes to be awesome. MOoh! is certainly one of those designers

Jessy Girl

Just look at this super cute little beachy dress, “Jessy”. This is the 1L prize for the Beached Bunny Hunt. I love the aloha floral pattern! And it’s cute and flirty without being too reveling. Plus, you get a HUD with six great colors! I think it’s perfect for your next beach party or backyard BBQ.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
