Hope for Healing

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree! Long time no see. I’m going through a rough patch health-wise, but hopefully I’ll be back to the full swing of things soon.

In the meantime, I have a cute little post about the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt. I just love the FabFree hunts! They give me that extra push of motivation to get the blogs out, and who can say no to a FabFree event? Not me! The adorable rainbow and shamrock heels I have on are a free hunt prize from Grumble on the new hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

More Goodies

I also have a couple more gifts to show you today that completes my cute little March outfit.

  • The great hairstyle is a group gift at Yomi. This is an older gift but I thought it deserved to be featured again because it’s so beautiful! Their group costs 100 L to join and they have other gifts waiting for you there.
  • My cute pose is from a free pose pack on the Marketplace by Overlow poses. Great animations here!

Enjoy, Fabbies!

Mystical Beauty

Mythical Market Hunt
Hunts are really one of my favorite things to do in SL.  I also like events.  It’s awesome to see all the different creators come together and offer fresh new styles.  I love an event that is themed AND has a hunt, and I was not at all disappointed in the Mystical Market Love Potion Edition Event & Hunt.  The hunt items are 10L but no group is needed, but you can view them here in advance.  BUT, definitely go to each store because there are free gifts, too.

Most everything in the picture above was found in the hunt or as a freebie.  Let’s dig in!

The outfit by QE Designs is actually labeled as pajamas (Veronica pajamas – Dark Vintage Lace), but I would totally wear this to a club.  It comes with a 4-color HUD including black, berry, and blue (and the purple I am wearing).  Cost: 10L (Hunt)

The Outfit!

The Hottie Heels are made by Grumble and come in red.  They are really cute (and look very sharp – both literally and figuratively).  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Potion Necklace by Little Bat comes in two versions: Love or Hate.  I am a lover, so I went with Love for the picture.  You can click to resize it.

The Love Potion Paper Earrings are made by Byrne and are super cool.  First, they come in pink, purple, and red, but each color also comes with both a static and a glow version that blinks slowly!  I am wearing the glow version, but you really can’t see them blinking.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Earrings Glow!

The circular tapestry rug by QE Designs is really pretty, and this is one of three FREE gifts in the QE shoppe at the Mystical Market. Cost: FREE!!!

The red and black Gothica Pillows come with red wine glasses and are by Angelic Designs.  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The rose and thorns decor by Love is so pretty.  You can resize this and it works on the ground or on a mantlepiece.  Cost 10L (Hunt)

The backdrop is called Black Witch Moth Tapestry by Dragon Magick Wares.  It’s resizable which I loved!  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The Gothic Valentine’s Gift Boxes by Laminak come in 4 styles.  They have little skulls on them and the ribbon colors differ on each box.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The pose is from Something New called Just Take My Heart at the Cheeky 69 event.  It comes with both the pose and the little heart.  Cost 69L (Event).

Cookie Monster

Snapshot_012

Tonight I have some adorable freebies from two events going on at Malus Park right now. If you love Christmas cookies, these are for you! I have trays of them leftover from Christmas… I baked far too much this season. It’s time to treat myself to some cookie leftovers! 🍪

The Holiday Magick Hunt

First off, the Holiday Magick Hunt is going on until January 10th. The prizes range from 0-25L each and you can see the gifts and hints here. I am showing several prizes from the hunt tonight.

  • The nosering, choker, an vanilla latte are hunt prizes from HORL. They cost 10L per piece.
  • The Christmas wall decoration is from Exquisite Eye Decorations and it only costs 5 Linden.
  • The tray of Gingerbread cookies is the prize from Reckless Angel, and it cost 10 Linden. That’s my Cookie tray!

Living in a Winter Wonderland

Today is the last day to visit Winter Wonderland, and I am showing two free gifts from the event which you can grab for a limited time until December 31st:

  • The lovely snow queen painting is a lovely creation by Cwtch. What a magical art piece!
  • The adorable mouth Cookie from Grumble. I just had to pair this treat with my latte!

Enjoy the cookies, FabFree!

How is this post about zombies?

How is this post about Zombies?

Hey there, FabFree!  Monday got ya down? It could be worse… you could be a zombi instead of just feeling like one! But Grumble is telling me that everything is Better with Zombies.  Confused yet?  I can explain. See, Grumble is hosting a sweet mini hunt in the stores of their mall running along the Twisted Hunt. And they’re calling it the “Everything is better with Zombies” Hunt. I assure you that this mini hunt is not at all like the Twisted Hunt which is as hard as it’s rumored to be. The Zombie hunt is just for fun and for great free prizes, of course!

Speaking of great prizes, I am in love with these super cute pajamas from Ari-Pari, “Creepy Monsters.” The roving eyeballs are creepily adorable! You get the top and shorts as two separate pieces and a HUD for five color choices. The top and shorts can be colored separately as well for fun mix and match.

Sizes Included

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

If you look close you’ll see my second gift from the Hunt, the Barrow’s Landing Bracelet from Loordes of London. I don’t usually show too much jewelry but this bracelet is so nice. The stones are like sea glass or polished pebbles. I just love it.

The “Everything is Better With Zombies” Hunt (( <- This LM will take you to Grumble’s main store and a kiosk of photos of the Hunt Prizes)) will run until Sept 30th so shuffle over to the Grumble mall and get to hunting!

Top + Shorts – Ari-Pari @ Grumble Mall – Creepy Monster Set – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Jewelry – Loordes of London @ Grumble Mall – Barrow’s Landing Bracelet – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Bittersweet

Bittersweet farewell

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  After some retail therapy, I spent the afternoon at the beach today, enjoying the last burst of summer.  The beginning of September is always bittersweet to me.  I look forward to the crisp days of fall, but I’m never really ready for the change of seasons.  Pretty soon, it will be time to pack crop tops and shorts away and pull out cozy sweaters and long pants.  For today though, I am rocking my latest hunt find and a cute pair of shorts.

Loving that Dragon!

This adorable crop top from Grumble features bright pops of color splashed over a black background and slender shoulder straps that allow my skin to soak up the sun.  I really love the jewel tones in the pattern, which draws inspiration from the theme of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Both Jacx and I have already shared hunt items here and here, but with 42 stops along the way, there are plenty of other budget-friendly goodies hidden on the trail.  Each hunt prize has a 3L price tag, but the sponsor fees are for the IKSDP Harambee project Gwassi Kenya schools.  It feels good to scoop up some new items for my wardrobe and support a worthy cause at the same time.  The event runs through September 30th.

Stand Out

Stand Out

Heyya  Fabulous People! One of the best thins for me abut living on the Grid is I can wear anything I want! I can be as sedate or as wild as I feel like at any given moment. And some days.. I wanna stand out above the masses! And that’s just what this sweet little combo from Grumble is making me feel.

Both my new shoes and dress are free group gifts from the fabulous Grumble. They are just two of a ton more past gifts available for us members. And that group… free to join!

The ‘Knotted  Dress – Butterflies’ is more than just another mini. The super rich colors of the print on the black just pop. And the little detail of the knot at the hem of the dress makes it just that much more of a stand out.

Oh and these shoes! The ‘Lace up Black wedges’ could go with just about anything in your wardrobe. The details of the build are so perfect. But this IS Grumble we’re talking about so that’s no surprise.

Not just another flower in the garden

Not just another flower in the garden

Hey FabFree! I have two lovely things to show off tonight so let’s jump straight in!

First is another 10L special From Fable 6. My lovely necklace and earrings are from Grumble and you can have the set for just 10 little Lindens. Now I loved the “Garden Fantasy” jewelry set the moment I unpacked it but I didn’t have anything to wear it with. Or so I thought!

Then I stopped over at the last 😦 round of the Gacha Life event and there it was! The perfect dress to show off with my flower jewels! This is the “Betsy Dress” from Dore Papillon Boutique and you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag from Gacha Life. Of course the Gacha Life group is totally free to join! There are free gifts at most of the booths at Gacha Life so be sure to pop in.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass

And there ya have it! A complete look from two different events put together as if they were made for each other. I do love Second Life Shopping!

Under the Aranyani Trees

Under the Aranyani Trees
I have been yearning for wide open spaces, for the green of nature, and for the gentle sway of leaves in the trees on a soft breeze.  I also have been yearning for a bit of magic, I think – nothing too explosive, just a twinkling of fairy dust here and there to make the every day normalcy less heavy on my soul.  Time to find some magical trees, and dream a little dream.

Enchanted Again

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is still going – you’ve got just a few days left to pick up some pretty fantastic prizes.  I stopped at two shops in my wanderings and picked up some awesome stuff!  Firstly, I headed over to Grumble to pick up this really pretty floral dress for just 2L.  I love the ruching up the side that makes it just a little more special.  Second stop was Dench Designs for this super cool set of trees.  They are actually quite special – you can click on them to make some lights appear in the trees, or fairies, or even some floating candles (and more!).  This awesome feature (that also comes with a comprehensive set of bento poses which I watched for a really long time – holy finger movements!) only costs 1L, and I can’t impress upon you enough how lovely it is.
