No Passport Needed

Hello again, FabFree Dear ones! I don’t know about y’all but I need a vacation! Taking eighty or so days to trapse around shopping at fabulous stores and collecting great prizes sounds like just the thing.

No Passport Needed

My first stop on the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt was at Nerdy Girl. I am absolutely in love with this dress! I spent a large part of my collage age years in Oklahoma and route 66 runs right through there. I have very fond memories of cruising the ‘mother road’ through the back country and stopping at funky little diners and dives along the way. The ‘Vintage Summer Road trip ‘ dress would have been the perfect get up to cruise around in! It comes in all the standard sizes and the little bow at the waist is optional.

I had to have hair that would ‘flow’ in the breeze as I drive so I stopped at Kokolores’ shop at the Hair Fair and picked up their free gift – Ash . It comes in a very nice variety of colors and is unisex. I’m thinking it would look tres smexy on some of you guys out there who rock the longer hair.

As my real life BH  ( That’s Beloved Husband ) will tell you: I never travel light. Poor guy is pulling out his hair trying to pack everything for our move as it is.  Annnyway, Park Place Home Decore has set out the sleek three piece luggage group for us as part of the Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt. It comes loaded with 22 poses for guys and gals. It’s just the thing to pack up your souvenirs from the trip!

The Hair Fair only lasts until July 26! That’s just a few more days, so if you need hair ( and who doesn’t??) go support the Wigs for Kids charity and grab some marvelous free gifts.

The Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt runs all the way till September 30th!

Fashion Safari

As a teen I had day-dreams of one day becoming a runway model. I didn’t want fame. I just wanted to stomp down that runway wearing something awesome with fierce hair and makeup! This ensemble is exactly the sort of look I imagined wearing. Lucky for us, the look and feel of this fierce fashion can be had without a fierce price tag.

Starting from top to bottom, this sleek stylish up-do is a FREE gift by Blues Hair at the Hair Fair. The style called “Lunaire” comes in a fatpack so there’s certain to be a shade that suits everyone. The Hair Fair ends in just a few days, so don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift!

You’ll have to check out the photo below to get a better look at these other-worldly eyes Pru has in. They are a dollarbie by Pulcino at the Okinawa Summer Festival. The eyes come in system layers, and include mesh attachments. There is also a green version included with the “blue” version shown. While you’re at the Pulcino booth at the Okinawa Summer Festival, check out the manicure Pru is wearing. You can get it for just 45 lindens for the duration of the festival. I like the metallic look with the vibrant color and tiny anchor detail. I love nautical themed  items for summer! Don’t wait on this one, the Okinawa Summer Festival ends July 23rd.

Now I know you’re curious about this fierce eye-makeup. This masked look is courtesy of SlackGirl. Called “Imperia” the eye-shadow set is the current FREE group gift at SlackGirl. The gift includes a palate with several variations of this style, each with the exotic red mask. The makeup comes in system layers and a Lelutka head applier. The SlackGirl group is FREE to join. To get your gift, wear your SlackGirl tag and click the pink gift box in the center of the room at the landing point.

This great dress is one of five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. This along with four other prizes are just 10 lindens each, you’ve just gotta hunt for them! I love the cut and style of this dress, I think it’s cute on and it wears well. It’s the fifth of the five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. Happy Hunting!

To go with the dress from More Than Ever, I picked up the current FREE group gift at Finesmith. The most recent group gift at Finesmith is this gorgeous gold bracelet in a honeycomb design with a detailed honey bee accent. I thought the bracelet went perfectly with the gold belt that is part of the dress. The Finesmith group is FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Completing the outfit are these unique heels from EB Atelier. Also a FREE group gift, these gold and black heels are meant for Slink High feet. Like the bangle from Finesmith, I think the gold details in these shoes ties in perfectly with the gold belt on the dress. The EB Atelier group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag and head to the EB Atelier main location to pick up these fun heels. The gift is located on the lower level.

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl’s Best Friends

We probably all remember the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” I remember thinking: “But diamonds are hard and why do boys get dogs?!” Because dogs were man’s best friend — what was up with that? Life was so unfair! Well MINA @ the Hair Fair, Belle Epoque and Empyrean Forge are here to save the day with outstanding fashion (as usual!) to make up for all the insanity!

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [2]

I had spent a hard day’s work braving Hair Fair, where I picked up this amazing FREE gift from MINA @ the Hair Fair called Selenia. This gift is only available in Grey tones (which was fine by me as it fits my roleplay character (a glass fae) just perfectly! But it would also be terrific for mature looks or even in the very lightest shade to pass for a platinum blonde.

The great thing is that this is one of those second chance gifts! You first saw this hair HERE where it was blogged as an amazing find by Love Trill at The Arcade Gacha! So if you missed it then, now it’s available for a second go ’round!

My next stop was a quick jump to Belle Epoque for their amazing FREE group gift which is perfect for any roleplayer’s wardrobe and can be worn as is — or over the top of system clothes or applier clothes for more modesty if desired. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE as well. It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes, and includes three great colors (I’m only showing you the green but there is also a beautiful blue and a fabulous brown shade inside the package as well!).

Belle and Pearls are a Girl's Best Friends [1]

I had decided that the evening now called for a little relaxation, which meant I headed home to sit by the fire and did the rest of my shopping via the marketplace where I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite designers — Empyrean Forge — is spoiling us all with a special promo! A 1L giftie of their Contessa ring in either a lustrous white or sexy black pearl option (depending upon which way you go)!

This is great because you can give it as a gift to a friend as well if you like. I finished my look off with a lovely manicure set by alaskametro in a french silver finish for slink hands. The applier kit is on the Marketplace and has a great palette choice of 25 colors for only 25L. That’s a hard deal to beat for such a great color set!

Belle and Pearls Are a Girl's Best Friends [3]

In case you were wondering, yes I did splurge. With all the mullah I saved on my other goodies for this get-up, I did buy the jewelry that matches the Contessa ring! Empyrean forge is offering a lovely matching necklace and matching bracelet and with a color change hud, each with two metal choices, and 12 gemstone finishes. I just couldn’t resist!

Topsy Turvy

Hello and happy Friday, my FabFree Dears! I’m getting ready for the weekend by going completely casual! Well… I’m getting ready for a casual weekend in SL… in RL not so much….

topsyTurvy_001

ANY way…  let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started my casual Friday with these cute shorts from WallFlower. The ‘Daisy Denim’ shorts are part of the Beached Bunny Hunt and are a great 1L prize. Nice and versital. They come in system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Omega. It’s always good to see well done system layer items! On top, I have a cute lace side tie top from ‘New to me’ designer: Lowkey Shawty. The Knotted top is a dollarbie on Lowkey’s Marketplace page but there are many cute things in the main store too.

 

topsyTurvy_003

On top.. too or would that be two….  I have another fab design from our own FabFree Designer, More than Ever! The Blue Tie Dye tee is part of the Summer Hunt 2015 on the Flawless Sim. Each of the prizes is between 10 and 15L which sounds like a lot till you see the prizes. There are kiosks set up on the corners of the Sim displaying all the prizes from the shops so you can pick which prizes you want to hunt for. And trust me… you will want a bunch of them!

The 1L Beached Bunny Hunt runs until July 31st and the Summer Hunt runs until July 26th so Happy Hunting and have a great weekend!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [1]

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!

***************

Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

I dream of gardens in the desert sand

Hello again, my FabFree dears!  You know, sometimes it’s fun to mix up these blog posts a little. Take a top from here and a pair of pants from other there, pair of shoes from yet another. Sometimes you can come up with a wild new look!

desert_001

I’m calling this my new Desert Rose look. It starts with these gorgeous palazzo pants from the ‘Camden’ set from Sweet Temptations. The set comes with the pants with the attached belt and a super cute denim vest. Camden is the latest group gift and the group is free to join. My top is a great bargain from Eluzion. This is the ‘Melina’ top and the chocolate brown I’m showing is just one of six color/patterns the HUD lets you choose from. Right now, Eluzion is offing the Melina top with the HUD as a special promotion for only 65L. But, if you like the top, you better hurry down… the special sale only lasts this week!

PicMonkey Collage

To complete my new look, I needed some great shoes and jewelry so I headed to the Marketplace. I found these fantastic ‘Tribal’ sandals for SLink Mid Feet from Katie’s Kreations for only 10L! You can’t beat that!  While I was on the Marketplace, I found the just right necklace and earring set from Old World. This is the Medieval Jewelry – Tooth set from Old World and it will only set you back 1L.

Do you like my little friends in the picture? These are two of the eleven adorable little Fennec foxes available in Half – Deer’s Fennec Fox Gacha at Kustom9.  These cuties are only 1land impact each and the two rares are wearable companions. You can collect a whole… flock… herd… troop… of them at only 65L per play. Kustom9 runs until July 15th so don’t delay if you need one of these little guys.

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

What’s New Pussycat?

Hello FabFree Folks! If you haven’t already guessed: I love cats! So when I saw there was a Cats! Hunt, I knew I was going Hunting!

Cats_001

First up, this is the “Cats Hunt”  dress from Get Frocked. I love the little black cats on the skirt and the back has a really unusual open design. It goes perfectly… or should I say ‘purrrrr fectly’ with my new tattoo from French Vintage Couture.  The “Cats” tattoo comes with two thigh sets of paw prints, one set for the spine and even a set for your face.  My necklace continues the paw print theme and adds a little heart to it. This is the ‘Paw” necklace from Miss Jewel.

Cats_002

Now, I know we normally don’t blog things like tip jars but when I saw that you can add your own photo and this being all about our feline friends… I had an opportunity to show off my real world fur babies.  This is the Curious Cats tip jar from Tipsters. It is a very nice build and I love that you can add your own photo to it. I’m going to keep it around as a super cute picture frame since it only takes up 3 land impact points.  And if you’re ‘curious’ … from left to right that’s Malachi, Boomer, Ivy and Cassie all sitting in the window saying ‘hi’ as I come home.

The 1L Cats! Hunt runs until July 30th so have fun!

Dreaming in Blue

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!  I’m popping on to show y’all a Fifty Linden Friday item so this is gonna be quick! *waves to Kimmie Banufong* Thanks for the tip!

Hunt_001

First, the shoes. These are the Gabby Plats Heel for SLink ( and Belleza and  Meitreya AND The Mesh Project) High Feet from Reign. For this Friday special you can grab the fatpack for just 50L. I love the lace overlay detail, it’s so unusual and it’s really well done here.  But if you want it you need to hurry!

Second, is this gorgeous dress from More Than Ever. This is the ‘Blue Forest’  dress and it’s MTE’s prize for us girls in the 1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt. There is a matching loincloth/ kilt for the guys in the prize box too and it’s… very smexy! *waggles her eyebrows*  All of the Hunt’s items are inspired by fantasy and fairies but this fluttery summer dress is too pretty to only have one label. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a day in the park or a warm summer evening’s outing?  Unlike the heels, you have until July 21 to get your Hunt on and scoop up all the 1L prizes!

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!
