Oh baby…

Lush_001

It’s baaaaaack… that ever popular dirty little secret that we love to hunt for… the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt! And do I have some hunt finds for you!

Oh baby…

I did my hopping around the grid for this hunt, but I ended up back home curled up on the edge of my bed in creamy lace, courtesy of @rOrO and their free white lingerie gift that is part of the hunt. You’ll get a pair of panties and a very sheer baby doll top that is split down the front to reveal your belly button. I had to do some strategic camera angles to even show this off at all! It even includes lace gloves in an omega applier (I forgot to put them on… doh!) but boy is this lingerie pretty!

Lingerie & panty sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Heels!

What do you think of my heels? I picked these up free as part of the hunt as well from Sevyn East. I failed to get a close up, but if you click on the picture to bring up flicker and then click for a close-up, you’ll see that my pink heels are covered with unicorns! How cute is that! I thought it was a perfect touch to go with my lingerie. These cute heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Paradise and Leaves

Paradise and Leaves_001

Baby Monkey goodies

Baby Monkey was the main inspiration for my look today, as I picked up three great gifts from there. Two were store group gifts, and one was the latest FabFree group gift, offered exclusively for FabFree group members.

Sunglasses!

Pru has been showing off some amazing sunglasses in her posts here and here and so when I saw that Baby Monkey had out a cool pair of shades as one of their group gifts (the group is only 20L to join) I was hooked! I had to get in on the deal. These Paradise Sunnies have a cool set of palm trees on the lenses which reminded me summer here as the last of the season will fade into fall.

Shoes too!

The other really terrific group gift from Baby Monkey was these Connor Floral pumps. You get heels to fit TMP, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, plus a texture change hud with 12 colors for the shoe and 4 colors for the heel. That’s a lot of shoe!

And… the leaves!

I also picked up the Baby Monkey FabFree group gift which is completely free with your Fabfree group tag. Just don that tag and touch the vendor and you’ll get your tucked leaf top for free. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes including:

Shirt sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Top it off with hair!

As usual, KoKoLoReS remembers us with a monthly group gift of beautiful hair! This month is Lilibeth and comes with a texture change hud of natural colors. I like the pretty over the shoulder style and the braid at the crown. It looks both dressy and casual at the same time. There is a one-time join fee of 250L for the group, but the creator is excellent about setting out a monthly gift for members, making this a group worth joining.

Enjoy your gift “shopping”!

le 4 Juillet

le 4 Juillet

Growing up, one of my favorite classes in high school was French, and I had an amazing French teacher who was French-born. We would celebrate Bastille Day on July 14th, and my French teacher was always great about recognizing both the 4th of July as well as Bastille day, and we would have celebrations for both as she would teach us the importance of both holidays and how they were similar and how they were different. I admired her a lot.

I thought of her today as I stopped on my gift rounds and put together my outfit. I thought of her as I thought about the importance of fighting for human rights, freedom, and things we believe in. She was an inspiration to me. So this post is for her… my le 4 Juillet!

Pick up your heels!

Graffitiwear put out two really terrific gifts for the month of July, so pick up your heels and get down to the store to pick them up! If you are already a subscriber member, you should have received the free July Subscriber gift, which is this great set of Strappy Blue heels. They come in a box that includes heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, as well as a pair that says “Map” that I’m not familiar with. If you’re not a subscriber, just slab that board and the heels will be delivered to you!

A new dress!

My new dress is the July group gift. Just wear your Graffitiwear group tag and pick up this July dress which is perfect for any July celebration.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New hair too!

I’ve been showing you some of the great gifts from the Hair Fair here and here, and I’m back again with another great style. I love this edgy look from KoKoLoReS called “Sniper.” I think it’s super sexy, and it’s not only free but it comes in a fatpack of colors too!

Again I went to the cam area and shopped from there, using the trick that I told you about in my post here to be able to select things from long distances. I picked up this style and was thrilled!

Happy cam shopping at the Hair Fair! There are so many wonderful gifts to be had!

Bike-Riding Attire

Bike Ride

Hello FabFree! *Waves!* I’ve been busy moving in real life to a new house and it’s kept me away (and very busy). I just put the finishing touches on my new kitchen! I moved from an apartment to a house and now have a back yard! I’m so excited! My new neighborhood has sidewalks that are great for bike riding, so I thought a bike ride in second life would be perfect to commemorate my return to FabFree after my hiatus! I found this quaint neighborhood with a bike rezzer and took a ride!

My riding attire…

… is almost entirely from one place! You’ll want to pick up all these goodies to enjoy for your own adventures!

Feeling Lucky!

I guess it was my lucky day at Graffitiwear as well! I won both this shirt and these shoes on “lucky” items. The shirt is from the Group Only Lucky Board at Graffitiwear. The group is only 5L and gives you access also to a Midnight Mania Board as well as a monthly group gift, so it’s well worth joining. My letter came up and the Silk Top was mine! It comes with a color change hud that includes 8 different textures. Sizes included: Standard Mesh XXS – L and Maitreya.

I also took a dive into the free Lucky Dip and came up with the free pair of bunny shoes you see in the picture! How cute are these! You’ll get them in black and white both, as well as fits for both Slink and Maitreya feet!

Top it off!

I really loved the Subscriber Gift at Graffitiwear for June. If you are not currently a subscriber, be sure to go subscribe and get your free Flower Head Wreath to decorate your favorite hair style. If you are currently a subscriber and missed getting the gift, just slap the sign above the subsciber and it will be delivered to you for you to wear!

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know? 🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

The Lady in Red

Lady in Red

There’s a fresh FREE lucky board at Entice (no group required) that is just yummy! This Rain Over Me in Gradient dress (with a 3 color hud for red, blue, or purple as your color choices) is yours with a bit of luck if your letter comes up. Don’t fret though… it’s right next to several other lucky letter boards, a FREE Group Midnight Mania board, a no group required FREE midnight Mania board, and other group gifts … all FREE. So you’re bound to find things to keep you busy while you wait for your letter!

This dress in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits, and includes an alpha layer for standard mesh bodies as well. You’re bound to find your fit!

The Moda board locked down the other day too, delivering me a pair of Cayla Wedges in red… woot! These matched my new Entice dress in its red color so well, that I couldn’t help remind you of this awesome FREE Midnight mania board. It locks down at 400 slaps and the pair of shoes changes out daily… so it’s worth smacking to lock down… just go slap it!

** Quick note to clarify: Since my Moda shoes are from a couple of days ago, today’s style and color will be different. As I explained in the paragraph above, the style and/or color available changes daily! This is just a reminder of this great free offer 🙂

If the Shoe Fits!

The Fab Free Shoe Day is finally here! I am so excited about all the shiny shoes I’ll be adding to my ever-growing collection!! I’ve been oohhing and ahhing over the other posts and plan on spending some time snagging the shoes everyone has found for myself! That said, it just so happens there are 2 hunts going on at Free Dove that include, you guessed it, FREE Shoes! Though you will have to hunt for them, the shoes are absolutely FREE, and you’ll find men’s shoes as well as the ladies shoes I’ll be showing. First, one of the designers participating in a current Free Dove Hunt is Duh!.

Duh Shoes

You can find both pairs of these cute boots from Duh! at Free Dove, just hunt them down. I promise they aren’t too hard to find. Plus with cute FREE shoes on the line, a little hunting never hurt anyone. Each of these pairs of boots include a matching alpha layer and do not require mesh feet of any kind. While you are at Free Dove and hunting, why stop with these? Iconica also has several hunt items at Free Dove, 5 of which are FREE women’s shoes.

Iconica Shoes 1

Each of the above pairs of shoes are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove by Iconica. There are men’s shoes to be found as well, but I’ll be sticking to the shoes for the ladies. The Iconica shoes are not only FREE but several are in exclusive “Free Dove Hunt” colors. The best part about the Iconica Free Dove Hunt collection, is that there are shoes for every occasion from casual to dressy. The shoes on the left require mesh feet, there is a pair for Slink High or Belleza feet included in the box. The boots in the center include a regular alpha layer, and should not be worn with mesh feet. I was able to wear them with my mesh body by adjusting their position a little. The shoes to the right also include 2 versions, one for Slink Mid feet, and one for Belleza.

Iconica Shoes 2

The best way to end this post in my mind is with dressiest shoes in the bunch. These shoes are also part of Iconica’s hunt items at Free Dove. The party shoes on the left include a version meant to fit Slink High feet and a second version meant to fit Belleza mesh feet. The classy black pumps on the left include a pair meant for Slink High feet only.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

Boots – ::Duh!:: Fur Topped Wedge Boots – Blue – FREE Hunt Prize @Free Dove 

Boots – ::Duh!:: Futuristic Moon Boots Red – FREE Hunt Prize @Free Dove

Spumped by That Vintage Touch

Rev me up! I’m ready to ride! And a little Vintage Touch added to my inventory was just the attitude adjustment my wardrobe needed to spruce up my Sunday stop at BB’s Diner in Second Life!

The Vintage Touch [1]

You still have a few day’s left to catch the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale. So before time runs out, make sure you stop by the Vintage Touch Cart to check out their fabulous mesh T-shirts. These classic designs are only 10L each, come in all the standard sizes, and are transferable for gift giving too!

The Vintage Touch Cart also has a special deal for you while you are at their cart! If you touch the Landmark giver to their main store, it will give you a free gift and then you can travel to their main store where their line of zodiac pendants and rings are currently on sale for only 10L each as well!

Each ring or pendant package includes both a male and female item in two sizes. Astrid is wearing the Capricorn set above and below is a picture of the full line up of all the zodiac styles available!

The Vintage Touch [3]

Okay, so I couldn’t resist a stretch out on top of the convertible I found outside of the diner… but only because I wanted to show you these fabulous SHOES! Oh my goodness! You simply must make a hop stop to shop at Pure Poison to nab up these heart-popping Leila Spumps. Yes! I said spumps! If you are wearing your Pure Poison Group tag you are eligible for a free spin on the Leila Gacha and can get a pair of these fantastic spumps for free! I didn’t get the rare, but the gift gacha granted me a pair in black, so I was just as spumped (pun intended)!!!

Best yet? Right now the Pure Poison group is FREE to join, making this a FREE gift! This may be a limited time offer, as I do remember the group having a fee in the past, so be sure to nab up your group invite ASAP!

The Vintage Touch [2]

Now if wine and burgundy aren’t your thing, don’t let that deter you from stopping by the Vintage Touch Cart to pick up a T-shirt. As you can see below, the variety is terrific. There are 8 great styles available, in 8 different colors — and while my shirt was about wine… there are shirts for milk lovers, tea drinkers, coffee connoisseurs, and beer buddies. This creator has you covered! Check it out below!
