HUNT SL marketplace-hunt-poster-v2-0Good morning Fabulous Friends! Yesterday I reported on all the October hunts that just started. Today, let’s have a look at ALL the hunts currently going on in Second Life.

If you like shoes, and all things foot related, you might want to take a look at the Best Foot Forward hunt. This hunt has 27 stops so you can probably go from start to finish in a couple of hours. Look for the black shoe prints.

Is  your avatar too tired to run around? You might try out the Marketplace Hunt. That’s right, you don’t actually have to “go” anywhere… just jump around the Marketplace looking for the items tagged for the hunt. Pretty clever actually.

There are plenty of other themes of course. Check out the list!

The October Hunts Are Here!

Just Started Clock HandWelcome to October! I have all kinds of new hunts to tell you about this morning!

Halloween is going to be the big theme for hunts this month of course, but there’s plenty of other stuff to go around too… the circus, moonies, literature, art, and women’s fashion, just to name a few. I’m sure you can find a hunt that “speaks” to you.

So take a gander at this big list of hunts and poke the hunt names for more information on each one. More October hunt goodness will be popping up daily, so check back when you can. Now let’s go hunting!

HUNT SL Good Witch Bad WitchWelcome to the first week of fall! There are lots of autumn hunts taking shape, so if you love the season as much as I do, there’s lots to be glad for. We’re also starting to see the very first trickle of Halloween hunts. Soon this will turn into a flood of spooky goodness, just like it has in years past.

My partner and I recently completed all 150 stops in the Womenstuff Hunt (yes, I have a girly avatar just for this sort of thing) and we came away with some very cool clothing and accessories. If you have a few days to spend, it’s a great hunt. We did it in stages over four days.

If that’s too long for you, there are plenty of shorter hunts. Just click the names below for the skinny on each hunt. I’m sure you can find one that’s a good fit for you.

The Skin You’re In, is perfect for dressing up.

Alright Fabbies. I have loads to show you in this post, from hunt stuff, store sale stuff, group gift stuff , to cart sale stuff, so I am not going to chat it up too much, I’m just going to get right to it!!

theskin1Lets start with my fun and flirty dress. The Fanny Sequin Dress is from CroM, a new to me store, and it is the gift for the WomenStuff hunt that is currently happening right now. This lovely dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and comes with a hud that will let you change the colour of the solid parts of the dress from the black I have on, to red. This hunt prize is free, although if you continue on in the hunt, be aware that some gifts are set to L$1. The hint for CroM is ‘I love new releases’. It’s pretty easy :) You have until September 30th to go find the little red t-shirt hunt object. theskin2

Next up are my gorgeous shoes. Essenz has put out a new, free group gift, and that is my Bologna heels in Olive Gray. These are for SLink high feet, as well, there is a pair for Maitreya feet too. The group is L$350 to join, but the gifts are given quite often, and you receive a 15% store credit when you wear your tag while shopping there, so I think it is a justifiable fee for sure.

theskin3Now, I did mention more Wash Cart Sale stuff didn’t I. This time, I’m showing off the sweet Danielle skin, in Tone 4 from The Skin You’re In, Direct TP. For L$10 a tone, either the cleavage version, or the non-cleavage version, you get your skin, with a bunch of different tattoo options. My favourite, is the fact the skin is eyebrow-less, and I’m sure you all know by now, my love of a certain pair of eyebrows that I wear constantly. However, the eyebrows that come with the skin are pretty, and come in several shades to match any haircolour. The other options are freckles, dimples, and the teeth I am showing off in the close-up where I have makeup on. The lower picture without makeup, which is a nice fresh face, is what my skin looks like as is, with the freckle layer. Perfect for adding makeup layers to! I’ll add a shot of the cart at the end of this post so you can see all the tones available. You only have until the 16th to grab this deal, so do not wait! theskin5

As I said, the bare face of my skin is perfect for all these makeup layers you can buy now. So how did I decide what to wear? Well, while I was wandering around The Wash sim, looking at the carts, I wandered by the La Boheme store, and saw that they are having an end of the summer sale, 50% off everything except already discounted items. Of course, I had to partake in the deals! All lipstick and eyeshadow packs are only L$35 each, and all nail appliers are L$25 each. I picked out the Matte Plum lips, the Feline Instinct eyes, and as highlighted in the picture below, the Abalone nails.This sale runs until September 15th, so make sure you go fast, you don’t want to miss out. Oh, and as an added bonus, there is a 2 pack set of nail appliers for SLink, set out as a free gift!


Phew! See, told you I had loads of great things to show off, and it all came together in a cute, slightly flirty-sexy, yet still classy look. Love when it all pulls together so easily! I think I took more time trying to decide how to wear my hair than anything else :P . OK, that’s it for me for now, so I am outta here, but you know I’ll be back. So, until then, TTFN!

MOH6 - FAREWELL SUMMER HUNTI’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I still have a lot of fun going out hunting. My partner and I go together while we’re discussing the hints via Skype, and fan out looking for the hunt prizes. Hunting in pairs and groups makes it a social event! Then there’s all the free (or very low cost) stuff that we come home with, so it’s a win-win.

There are some really good hunts going on right now. I’m planning to complete the Men Only Hunt 6 before it’s over, and then maybe take a run at the Bleeping Bunny Hunt 3. These are just the ones at the top of my own personal selections. I’m sure that you too can find a hunt or two to love as well. So take a gander at all these hunts and then check a few of them out.

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!


Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.


My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!


The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)


The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.


OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.


Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.


I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service :) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.


Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.


The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area :) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

Yellow, pink..Where’s the lemons, I want Strawberry Lemonade!!!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday everybody.

Ok, so, I have to admit, when I was thinking of titles for this post, all I could think of as I was looking at myself, was yummy, sweet and sour strawberry lemonade. It’s funny, because that has nothing to do with my outfit, other than the fact I am wearing yellow and pink. I figured, what the heck, I’ll go with it, and even found a quaint little fruit stand selling lemons for a background. So lemme show you what was making my mouth water.

strawberry lemonade1

Everything I am featuring today, except my mani and pedi, are from a new to me event called SOU By Creation.jpThey are celebrating their 1st anniversary right now, and  some of the designers have put out free gifts, some of which are group exclusive, and others are free for all. For the group exclusive gifts, the Creation.jp group is free to join, just slap one of the many group join boards at the event. You have until July 25th to grab all the gifts, and there are others I’m not showing, so it’s worth the visit :)

My lovely polka-dotted yellow dress is one of the group gifts. It’s from Azul, and is mesh, in all the standard sizes. While I did not include a shot in this post, you really must get a look at how sexy the back is on this. Oh, and I’ll just mention, if yellow is not your colour, or you really like this dress, head over to the Azul main store and they have this same dress in blue for their July group gift, and pink for SLF&O group members. Both groups are free to join, and the gifts are free!

Next giftie I’m showing you is this cute, short, unisex Katze hair from Uw.st. This hair is a group gift, so make sure you have your tag active. You get 2 different colours of this unrigged mesh hair, the Ash Rose that I am wearing, as well as a lighter Silver Wolf version, that I have not shown. Now, don’t be confused, although a lovely blonde/brown shade, I decided to tint the Ash Rose version to a dark brown (the lower picture is what Ash Rose really looks like). I did this for 2 reasons, 1 : I tend to wear darker hair usually, and 2 : to show you that since it is modifiable,  you are not limited to wearing just the colours they have given you. You can tint to your heart’s content! It’s almost like getting a fatpack :)

strawberry lemonade3

A benefit of the Kitze hair, is how well it shows off another of the gifts I grabbed at SOU By Creation.jpMy classic gold and silver twist, hoop earrings are the gift from EarthStones, and it’s one of the free for everyone gifts, no group needed. Everyone needs a pair of earrings like these. They will go with everything, and the mixed metals open up so many more possibilities of other jewelry you can pair with them.

The last goodie I am showing from this event is the sweet Ballet Flower ring from katatOnik. This, plus my nails and shoes,  is where that hint of pink comes into my outfit. You get 2 versions, one with a gold band, and one with a silver band. It is unrigged mesh, so you can resize it as needed. I have been a long time fan of katatOnik, and this freebie did not disappoint. Like my earrings, this is a free for everyone gift.

strawberry lemonade2

OK, I did mention my mani and pedi earlier. My lovely nails are courtesy of La Boheme, and are a free hunt gift for the Body Art Hunt, which started July 1st. You get 2 different sets, one with a gold accent, which I am showing off, and one with a silver. There are huds for both fingers and toes for SLink only, although I found that you only needed to use one to change both. I’ve included the display picture below so you can see all the pretty colours you get with these sets. Make sure you take a good look around the store, as there are a few other hunts happening here, as well as all sorts of great deals. The hint for this particular hunt gift is this : Cats usually prefer ferns to snack on, but Oscar likes a thicker leaf.

strawberry lemonade4

Wow…almost everything I am wearing is free! I love when a great outfit can be put together and the only cost is a little walking around :) I should have looked a little harder for free shoes to make this a totally free outfit, but, we all know my shoe obsession. I needed to get some use out of all the shoes I already have! LOL. OK lovelies, this was another wonderful Thursday spent with you all, but I must be off, I need to go quench my strawberry lemonade craving! You know the drill, until next Thursday, TTFN!
