FabFree’s Pumpkin Problem

FabFree's Pumpkin Problem

In the last two-and-a-half years that I have served as a FabFree blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know some absolutely amazing people! Today, I am talking about the FabFree team – and to me that includes all the great bloggers who have passed through the blog over the years. We (the FabFree bloggers) had the funniest inside joke last year about pumpkins. You see, when fall creeps around the corner there are ALOT of pumpkins to get all over the grid for free for about two months. Of course, we must show them to you! As a joke, we would say to each other: “No more pumpkins!!”, because the bloggers had shown off a copious amount of them last fall. It was hilarious to us!  But, the thing is… I never get tired of pumpkins! I love pumpkin soup, pie, bread, and lattes. Most of all, I LOVE to decorate my spaces in my Second Life with fall pumpkins and carved Halloween pumpkins! It’s still such a funny story though, and I wanted to let you in on one of the FabFree bloggers’ inside jokes. Do you think we can top the number of free pumpkins we showed last year on the blog? Let us know in the comments if you want to see more pumpkins this year!

A Free Pumpkin

And so the free pumpkin season begins! I have a free pumpkin for you! The freebie pumpkin is the one I am holding in both of my photos today. It’s a holdable item and it can also be rezzed. You can see the rezzed version of it on the left side of my photo at the top. This pumpkin is a free gift from -Extra- at the Fall Festival at Malus Park. No group is needed to get it! This event closes on October 1st.

An Autumn Hair Trivia Hunt

Now head over to the Autumn is Coming Event to grab the hairstyle I am showing in my post today. This hair comes from the Treasure Trivia Hunt run by Alli&Ali Designs taking place at Autumn is Coming until September 26th. This style is called “Ava” and it includes a HUD of autumn colors and styling options that lets you make the hair go over your shoulder, behind your back, or blow in the wind. You can see how I wore two of the four styles in my looks above and below! To get the treasure hunt items, first you must find all of the treasure chests hidden around the sim. When you click the ones that are on the treasure hunt, it will ask you a trivia question. When you get the answer right, the chest send you a free hair made by Alli&Ali Designs. In total, there are 17 hairstyles to collect from the Trivia Treasure hunt, which all come with an autumn colours hair colour hud. There are both female and male hairstyles on this hunt. The 18th prize on the treasure trivia hunt is some leaves decor. All of the free hair from Alli&Ali Designs comes from the treasure chests that pop up those trivia questions! For the trivia lovers out there, this is a fun little hunt!

As you walk around the Autumn is Coming Event, you will notice that many of the treasure chests simply send you the items for free, as these are the main event gifts from the other designers. Make sure you read Aline’s post here which shows some of the free gifts you can get from this fun pre-Autumn event!

FabFree's Pumpkin Problem II

A Snarky Top

Lastly, the cute top I am wearing is 10L at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival right here. This one is made by ZFG, one of SL’s wittiest creators. It’s very sarcastic. Read what the shirt says in my photo above, it’s funny. You will find this 10L prize in the coconut sugar bowl with the toucan on it. 100% of the proceeds of this item goes to Doctors Without Borders, and everything at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival is available from September 3rd-September 18th. You can read more about the Spoonful of Sugar Festival in my previous post here.

We Never Go Out Of Style

We never go out of style

I used to have a habit of blogging about an event on it’s last day. I still do, but I used to too (RIP Mitch Hedberg). And here we are again friends, because Tres Chic ends tomorrow. You’ve only got until June 10th to tp over and start clicking on gift boxes. There really are a lot of nice free gifts out, it’d be a shame to miss out on them. Here are the things I’m wearing today:

  • Let’s start with this free dress by TO.KISKI – cute and sexy and sweet and all of the things that I love in a dress, all rolled up into one! Sizes:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Legacy
    – Maitreya Lara
    – Maitreya Petite
  • I’ve accessorized with the free necklace by Ecru Couture and this one’s really fun. The HUD allows you to recolor each piece separately to tons of colors for lots of customization, and it’s such an easy to wear casual style. There’s no need to ever take it off! Included is rigged sizes for Maitreya and Legacy.
  • Speaking of fun – free balloons by extra! There’s a bunch for your left hand and one for the right, each of which includes the hold pose.

Tres Chic has gotten it’s fair share of coverage here on FabFree, and for good reason! The most recent post is Aline’s here and she’s got links on that post to the other posts. Links within links, it’s like Inception up on here. Either that or I’m just too lazy to link them all myself. But that isn’t the point! Tres Chic ends tomorrow and you don’t wanna miss it. ❤
