Summer Classic

Greetings FabFree,

Summer Classic

In the spirit of the long hot end of summer days, I have donned a classic summer look today. This white linin looking jacket is the free gift from Gabriel for the L’Homme readers. The jacket is paired with an attached white tee shirt to keep it from looking stodgy. The mesh jacket comes in one size with a good alpha and I found the fit to be perfect.

I also added the ‘Rock Star’ necklace from The Forge which I first showed you here. Happily, the free gift is still available if you missed it last month. As always, L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Late Afternoon

Heyya Fabfree! I hope your weekend is going as wonderfuly as mine!

Late Afternoon

I just dropping in to show off a couple of fresh finds for us.  I’m still opening boxes and bags from the Women’s Stuff Hunt and when I opened this super cute top from Tin Roof, I knew I had to show y’all. This is the ‘Daisies’ top and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. Daisies comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and FitMesh for SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and TMP.  The rusty red is an exclusive color for this top only for the Women’s Stuff Hunt!

My skirt is a free Group Gift from a ‘New To Me’ designer -> Egoxentrikax.  This is the ‘Pao’ skirt and it’s the current free group gift in the main shop. Pao comes in FitMesh sizes XXS-XXL as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink.  If beige isn’t your color, the gift also includes this skirt in a denim blue.

As always, I wish y’all the best weekend out there on the Grid. And, since you’re going to be out there… why not grab a picture and submit it to the FabFree Photo Challenge! I know our readers have some wild creativity! So lets see it!  The contest begins August 15 so don’t delay.

Your Friday Hunt Report

Get Leid HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! We’re seeing lots more sim and store hunts crop up lately. Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Flamingo

Flamingo Hello There Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since I put up a blog post, my apologies for that. Real Life has me on my toes these days. Hopefully I’ll find a bit of calm soon and be able to get back into a regular routine. I miss this! For today I have a few little things to share with you to create a cute everyday warm-weather look.

Starting with the eyes, or shall I say the eye makeup, Slack Girl has out a pretty set of eye makeup as a recent group gift. This pretty gift includes 3 variations of this pretty winged liner with a subtle shadow. The package has a Catwa/Omega applier for Catwa and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there is a full wall of FREE gifts including this one available to all group members. Don’t forget to wear that tag!

I really love it when designers make demos that are wearable. It really helps you see how an item is going to look, as well as allows you to test a product. The nails and rings Pru has on are a wearable demo from Angel Rock. The rings and nails are all part of the same single attachment, meant to fit Maitreya Lara hands. I found this pretty FREE wearable demo on the Marketplace. The rings are well detailed, and I genuinely like the colors. In the package you’ll find right and left hand attachments to fit several hand sizes, however you must be wearing Maitreya Lara mesh hands as well. You’ll also find a HUD in the package, however it is for demo purposes only. It will allow you to see the possible options of the full product, but it will not make any changes to your rings or nails.

Lastly, how cute is this top from AtiK?! I love the soft overlay floral pattern combined with pretty pink flamingos. This mesh top looks so cute on, and like it would be comfortable on even the most hot humid days. AtiK‘s in-world group is FREE to join, making this lovely group gift FREE as well. In the package you’ll get the mesh top in standard mesh sizes, as well as a matching alpha layer. There is an entire wall of group gifts at the AtiK location, just join the group and pick them up while wearing your group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Noir

I’m still feeling sort of ‘fantasy fantastic’ today… or would that be Fabulous Fantasy?

Noir

Anyway. I found a new to me area that is having a nifty little hunt: The Fall of Man Sim. Kind of a foreboding name but you’ll find all sorts of fun fantasy type shops there and until August 31, a Back to School Hunt! I found this gorgeous black gown and attached cape from Oi Bae! and its the 1L prize for the hunt. This is the ‘Dragon Gown’ and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. The belt is a separate piece and it also comes in XS-XL.

I’m going to steal something Gabriel found while checking out the L’Homme group gifts. The butterflies I’m dancing with today are the free gift from Zibska for the L’Homme readers. “Flurtur Noir” comes with the large ‘orbit’ of black butterflies, plus a smaller orbit from one shoulder. The gift also includes a lovely crown made of black butterflies that I’m not wearing today. The L’Homme group is free to join and you can jo9in from the kiosk in the participating merchants shops.

 

Edited to fix my misspelling the name of the store! Oi indeed… guess I needed another cup of coffee before I blogged😛

The latest issue of L’Homme Magazine and the related gifts have proven amazing. In case you missed it, Gabriel showed you an amazing FREE shirt from Cold Ash [here]. I was really thrilled when I discovered that no.match was participating again, and this time giving out a full color pack of men’s hair.

This is No Siren for men. The long braid loops over the back, and while the style isn’t for every guy on the grid, it is a quality hair that I know will work for many of you. It is also FREE with your L’Homme Group tag, which is FREE to Join. I’ve included a picture of both the front and back of the hair to give you a full idea of what the hair looks like.

I paired my new hair with a promo from House of Ruby. This Picnic Tank for him in Meadow Check is currently promo priced at 56L and is available only on the Marketplace for now. You will get system layers as well as omega and slink appliers. It’s a nice casual look for the beach or elsewhere and with a pair of cargo shorts, I found the look really worked for me.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.

Coffee

Good evening, Fabfree, ( or is it morning…)

coffee

Ethan will happily tell you that I do not function in the morning without coffee. A morning… even one at a lovely beachside cottage without coffee? Unthinkable.  At least I found this comfortable new shirt at Cold Ash for free. This is the ‘Logan’ shirt in plaid and it’s the free gift for L’Homme Magazine readers. This shirt comes in the standard mesh sizes S-L and in a Fitmesh version also S-L. The alpha layer is well made and the shirt itself is so well made you may not even need it.

L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture
