Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)

Just Boating Around

Boats_001

Roleplayers are you ready for amazing props! I have to give props to the Gacha Guardians for some amazing gifts that will have your roleplay enhanced if you stop by to pick up their free gifts! Props for everyone! And free too!

By the water

I stopped by the Gacha Guardians event and joined the free Gimme Gacha group (you’ll need the tag to get the gifts) and ran all over picking up the 38 free gifts that are scattered around the event. I set out two of them (but really they equate to three) here to share with you!

Just boating around

Unkindness has out a free gift you won’t want to miss! Stop by their gacha machine with your Gimme Gacha tag on and pick up their free gift of these Forgotten Oasis Boats. These one piece, highly detailed, mesh boats are only 9 prim when rezzed out and are really beautiful and perfect for any modern, medieval, or fantasy setting. They are perfect for enhancing a roleplay setting or any landscape really. And who can pass up free!

The bears the thing.

Breaux Jr. gave out a gift and at first I thought it was the box! I rezzed their box and it was this one prim adorable little baby bear! How cute is that?! And only 1 prim! Ohmygosh! He would make a great prop for any landscape!

Then I realized he was actually the box for another free gift that is inside him! “Open” him up and you get the free torch that I have rezzed out as well. This gift is also courtesy free of the Gacha Guardians event.

Lots more to be had!

Be sure to pick up all 38 free gifts. You never know what treasures you’ll find!

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

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

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t pinch me, I’m wearing green… thanks to some fabulous finds courtesy of the Cart Wash Sale and a fun group gift! Don’t worry, I’ll show you where to find the goods too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My fun shamrock inspired smock is sexy but also practical… and it’s only 10L! It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and you can pick it up at the cart wash from Ayva’s Attic. Don’t worry! There were several gorgeous styles that were for after the green day as well, including a daisy print dress I fell in love with. You should totally check this cart out, even if you’re not into green!

And my Brolly! OH it stole my heart! But HURRY! I think it is a TODAY ONLY giftie from JINX Fantasy store! So don’t delay! Get there ASAP and pick up this gorgeous giftie! It is FREE with your Group membership (which is only 5 tiny Linden to join). When you don your group tag and pick up the Jiggly Paddy Brolly, you will find two different Brolly’s in the Umbrella box… one will work with your AO and is just holdable to keep off the rain (or sun). The other… is jiggly! Just turn off your AO and your avi will do a jig which is absolutely fun as can be! You’ll just have to see for yourself. I’m not giving away the surprise!

Are you loving my rooftop furniture? These too can be yours if you stop by the Cart Wash Sale! I picked these up to add a bit of flair to my rooftop and really love them. Both are 10L offerings from Wood Works. The Grape Leaf Bench comes with an assortment of both male and female poses and offers props to go with them as well, such as drinks, books to read, and flowers to hold, and you get the bonus plant to the side as well. The bench is a mere 5 prims and the plant is only 2 prims, making these both really nicely prim conscious and you get both in the same box for you 10L!

I also am showing you Wood Works Shamrock Cushion, which is only 2 prims and 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. I love the casual sits it offers and it would be great for tossing out if you’re having friends over.

That’s it for now… enjoy the green day!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [1]

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!

***************

Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

ND/MD Little Me Midsummer Unicorn Fully Mesh Petite Avatar – (1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt Gift)

Hair – A&A Melrosa Hair Cinnamon Petite Edition — (1L on the Marketplace)

Midsummer Night’s Dream Garden by Lilith’s Den – (1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt Gift)
