Alright Spring, Do Your Thing!

Spring is in the Air

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your Monday treated you well.  If not, I’ve got just the thing to cheer you up – how does a free outfit sound?  My jacket, knotted cropped top and leggings all came as a group gift over at the Scandalize shop.

Spring is in the Air!

Ripley and I took a trip over to the Fox Paradise sim and enjoyed the ocean view while we frolicked in the green meadow.  The Elva Outfit is just right for those early spring days where the morning starts out a bit brisk, but then temperatures warm throughout the day.  All three pieces are worn separately, so as the mercury rises, you can shed the jacket and just sport the sexy white top alone.  I love it when an outfit is flexible like that!  Speaking of flexibility, the package includes two different versions of the jacket (the blue one I am wearing as well as an all white one) and two variations of the leggings – solid white and ombre.  You even get a HUD with a ton of options for altering the color of the buttons on the jacket.  To pick up a copy of Elva for yourself, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group, which has a 100L join fee, but there is an entire wall full of gifts up for grabs, as well as some lucky boards, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Paw-sitively Perfect

While we were shopping at Grumble, Ripley wandered over and started sniffing a tiny little pet bed and bone, which just so happened to be the hunt object for the Puppy Love Hunt.  The hunt is technically over, but luckily for me, the prize at Grumble is still available.  For just one Linden dollar, I scooped up a bauble which was right up my alley.  If you like fur babies as much as I do, this paw print dangling from a silver chain might be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit.  Don’t delay, though, because I’m not sure how much longer this will be up for grabs!

That’s a wrap for tonight.  Until next time, happy shopping (and hunting)!

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Sweet Skater Girl

Sweet Skater

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I were enjoying the first snowfall in our last post, I decided to slip on some ice skates and glide across the frozen pond while I had the chance.  Ripley absolutely refused to step foot onto the slippery surface, and watched safely from the shore.  I put together my outfit for just 1 Linden dollar by combining a hunt prize and a free group gift, and I’m excited to tell you about it!

A Serendipitous Discovery

While I was at the Grumble store searching for the Snowflake sweater in the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt, I stumbled across a neatly folded shirt, which is the hunt object for the Hoarders of Second Life Hunt.  It was just 1 Linden dollar, so I scooped it up, and decided to take it home to open later.  I am so glad I picked it up on a whim, because the sweet Word Dress was tucked inside.  Featuring a thick knit, loose turtleneck collar, and open shoulders, this form-fitting frock could be worn solo for a cute indoor mini, but since I was outside, I opted to slip on some cozy leggings (more on those later).  Just in case Jolly Old Saint Nick is watching, I like how the word “Sweet” is emblazoned just below the collar.  Hey, it never hurts to remind Santa how nice I am!  😉 The smoky charcoal gray hue is subtle and would coordinate with a variety of colors.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Gotta Keep Warm!

Over at [west end] Apparel, I picked up a fat pack of cozy stockings designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body.  This free gift for members of the [west end] VIP group contains a HUD which allows you to select from 36 texture options, which range from solids to stripes.  There are so many times in the winter season that I want to wear a dress, but also need to keep my legs toasty warm, so I know for sure these stockings will come in handy!  To add this gift to your wardrobe, you need to be a member of the group, which does have a 299L join fee, but you will have access to monthly group gifts, a 50% discount for items that were past group gifts, as well as access to special sales for VIP members only.

‘Tis the Season for Gratitude

I’m off to bake a pumpkin pie for the big day tomorrow.  It will be Thanksgiving here in the US.  I have so many reasons to be thankful this holiday season, including my pal Ripley, my RL family, the Fab Free blogging team, close friends, and of course our Fabulous Readers.  Just in case I don’t get the chance to post again before the holiday, I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for YOU, dear readers.  Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, leave comments and likes.  I feel so blessed to have this opportunity!  Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s About Time For a Long Winter’s Nap

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses!  The other day, Rip and I were strolling along the beach, and now we are back to a wintry wonderland dusted with the first snow of the season.  There’s something quite magical in the hush that accompanies a blanket of snow.  Although we don’t have any gulls for him to play with, there are plenty of snowballs to fetch!

A Long Winter’s Day

With the chilly air, it’s a good thing I have a new cozy sweater to keep me warm.  Ripley and I discovered this cute Snowflake Sweater in the Grumble store as we traveled down the path of the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt.  For just one little Linden dollar, and time spent searching, I came away with a snuggly top that is sure to become a cold weather favorite!  Featuring a long waistline, vertical ribbing decorated with a scattering of snowflakes and gray cuffs, this top is perfect for the winter season.  I chose to slip into some black leggings, but I think a pair of jeans would pair nicely with it, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

We’re off to see what other goodies we can uncover as we continue on the hunt path.  The Long Winter’s Nap Hunt runs until November 30th and contains 43 stops along the way.  Prizes all cost just one Linden dollar.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Just like Linus, Pru finds a pumpkin patch to wait in for The Great Pumpkin to appear. Maybe one day he’ll actually appear! This particular pumpkin patch complete with little twinkle lights and pumpkin blossoms is a 10 linden Pumpkin Hunt prize by Lunaria at the Fall Festival for Parkinson’s. Each of the stores has a 10 linden pumpkin, and there are additional pumpkins in the shop booths outside. Most if not all the proceeds from the sales of the pumpkins will go to help fund research for Parkinson’s. I can’t think of a better reason to spend 10 lindens!

Along with the dreamy pumpkin patch prize, Pru picked up this cute coffin dress from Grumble. It’s a single strap dress with a spooky cute coffin pattern on the top. The dress is in the 10 linden pumpkin from Grumble at the Fall Festival. It comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, eBody Curvy, Tonic Fine, Tonic Curvy, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus).

Last but not least the long dark hairstyle is one of two 10 linden pumpkin prizes by Firelight at the Fall Festival. This style is called Ophelia. The Ophelia hairstyle Pumpkin Hunt gift comes with a black and white color change hud, and has a tinting hud to allow you to add a tint to either color.

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Came to Slay

I Came to Slay

Oh hey guys!  It’s Friday, and I’m ready to chill out on this long Thanksgiving weekend.  Bring me all the delights of Fall!  I want all your turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie! Oh right, I’m trying to watch my figure so perhaps this little barrier of fingers that I have crossed across my lips will help… probably not… Anyway, I also want to be a little creepy, because well…why not.  Where all my witches at?!

Oh, Grumble

I hopped over to Grumble on the trail of the Boo! Bunny Hunt, and I did NOT grumble when I saw how cute their prize is!  I paid a very reasonable 1L, and got the adorable little skirt (complete with garters) and t-shirt which is just plain fun.  I am well pleased with this development! The clue to find the little candy in the black and orange wrapper is “Better get gassed up if I am going to track down this boo! bunny!  I would check the gas gacha station…”  Happy Hunting!

Have you been to the Pose Fair yet?  There are so so so many free pose gifts to be had there.  Join their group for free, and you’ll be rolling in poses for ages.  I’m showing off the free gift from Kokoro Poses, though I’m not sure it will keep the pumpkin pie from making its way into my mouth this weekend….

Have a fab Friday!

I don’t care if the world knows what my secrets are

FabFree: I don't care if the world knows what my secrets are

Good morning FabFree!  While I was at Grumble the other day searching around for the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt, I came across a few hunt icons and grabbed them too.  One of them was The Elemental Desires Hunt icon which is the four symbols of elements (water, air, fire, earth).  This hunt has two paths…  One for 1L and one for 40L, however this particular prize was on the 1L path.  You can find hunt hints and a prize preview on their official blog.

It’s True, I’m Secretly A Mermaid

I’m not afraid to tell the world about it either.  I wear my confession on the front of my adorable striped back tied hankie top!  It’s a little hard to see in the slouchy position I have myself in, but it does say “Secretly A Mermaid”.  The matching Criss Cross Shorty Shorts are mega short and have very cute ties at the sides.  Yep… this outfit is just 1L, and I love it!

Sizes Included:

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

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
