Just a Hippie Girl, in a Hippie World

coming soon

I am a sucker for anything artsy and bohemian… or pink.  I’m like a bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde).  Ok I’m not *like* a bohemian version of Elle Woods, that’s basically what I actually am, right down to a rescue Chi. (I don’t dress him in pink however, he is really a daddy’s boy)

Today is a bohemian sort of day, it’s warm, a bit humid, breezy.  So I stopped at this cute food truck to grab a cold drink and it came with a slice of watermelon!  So refreshing!  I really needed a walk someplace quiet, I’ve been all over the place doing the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt!  It was so much work to get set up, but now I am enjoying the fruits of all that labor (not watermelon!  lol).  I hope you guys are too!

While I took my stroll, I put on this cute top I got in the hunt thanks to The Bold Llama.  She has so many fun tank tops, I just love her shop. (I’m a sucker too for shirts that say stuff, and the crazier/funner (it’s a word!!!!  lol!) the better!)  This was only 3L in the hunt and it fits:

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

The hunt runs until July 22, but leave yourself plenty of time to hunt, there are lots of gorgeous items to be found!

OK gang, stay cool out there!

Patchwork

Patchwork

Hey There, FabFree! This is gonna be a fast one cause we don’t have much time to grab this Hunt prize!

I almost skipped this outfit. I do like the items at Feyline Fashions but they are old school Second Life – Mesh and Prims. While this isn’t a deal breaker for me… sometimes folks expect the latest and Meshy-est. But I thought ‘what the heck?’ I have a ton of friends on the grid who still rock their old school non mesh system bodies so why not!

This is ‘Patchwork Mary” from Feyline Fashions and it’s the 3L Hunt prize for the Multicolor Hunt.  And this is old school. The dress is rigged Mesh while the scarf and the sleeve “cuffs” are prims. But as you can see they are just beautifully made. I love the Boho patchwork skirt, it has such a happy hippy vibe! The outfit come with a backpack filled with a quill, parchment and some tasty apples for a snack. This is a great set for RP and it will be showing up for my character soon. There is a matching men’s outfit in the prize too. 

The one drawback…. The Hunt ends on Sunday the 31st! So get out there this weekend!

But First, Wine

Anti-Turkey Day

Hello Fab Free, I hope your week has been going well. This girl could use a great big glass of wine and it’s only Wednesday. haha Though I personally do not celebrate Thanksgiving, I am very much thankful for so many things. That is my one take-away from this November holiday. Needless to say I was happy to see some hunt prizes on the Jerky Turkey Hunt that were still perfect for fall but not blaringly Thanksgiving themed. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is a dollarbie hunt that will run from now until Nov. 30th. For this post I hunted down the his and hers hunt prize at Wicked Inc., and the makeup prize at The Little Bat.

The Jerky Turkey Hunt Website: http://evilbunnyhunt.blogspot.com/

Wicked Inc. 

This yellow and orange skull pattern sweater is the Jerky Turkey Hunt prize at Wicked Inc. I liked the skull pattern because it’s different from what you might usually see this time of year. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in female mesh sizes and standard mesh male sizes.

Hunt HintAlthough the guy downstairs thinks he’s classy the one at the top of the stairs that has a classy hat.

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL)
Female Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

The Little Bat

I’m always interested in makeup, it’s so fun and can be subtle or absolutely transformative. The Little Bat has a set of gothic fall lippies as their Jerky Turkey Hunt prize. I like the black upper lip that fades into a warm autumn color on the lower lip. The set includes 4 rusty autumn lip colors to choose from.

Hunt Hint: Oh deer, is that a turkey feather?!

Included: Omega Applier, BOM Layers

Beldam Haunt

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

Fierce Love

Photo Credits: Left photo by Prudence Rexroth / Right photo by BlueGreyEyeGentleman

Under the cloak of darkness, among the wisps and fireflies such a moment exists when love conquers all, even for fearsome Drow. The realm of the Dark Elves has taken over the Twisted Hunt this fall. Will you be able to brave this difficult journey and seek the hunt prizes through decoys and without hints to their location?

The fall Twisted Hunt with the Drow theme will end September 30th, with the End Game lasting through October 17th. Don’t wait to embark on this quest for free Dark Elf inspired gifts and prizes. Blue and I both took on the Twisted Hunt, though I admittedly did not complete the full hunt. Thanks to quite a few of the free Twisted hunt prizes, he and I were able to create these striking Dark Elf characters.

Nostalgia

Nostalgic

Have you ever been nostalgic for something? Like the smell of an old bookstore or the sights and sounds of a record store. It’d be great to be able to just snap your finger and be instantly transported into a record store straight outta the movies. Like Championship Vinyl from High Fidelity, Trax from Pretty in Pink, Polymer Records from This is Spinal Tap, Motormouth Maybelle’s in Hairspray, Chelsea Drugstore from A Clockwork Orange, or Empire Records of Empire Records. I think it would be awesome to visit Trax. When I grab the Men Only Hunt gift from Ascend and saw the way the Rick Open button Blazer looked. It gave me them Duckie vibes.

I came up with a Duckie inspired outfit, decked out a record store in 80’s vibes, and put on some Otis Redding. Before you know it I was singing
“All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna
Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Don’t be surprised, man
You got to squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave
You got to hold her, brother, something, man
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah, yeah”
and dancing around just like Duckie. You better dance your way over to Ascend and grab this Rick blazer soon. You only have eight more days before the Men Only Hunt ends. You’ll be looking for a PS controller and this hunt gift will set you back 10L. Pardon me while I dust off my vinyl and get back to dancing and listening to some tunes.

Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy/Legacy Perky

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

It is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag.
