99 Red Balloons

FabFree Post: 99 red balloons

Ninety-nine dreams

99 Dreams and it only takes 1 more to find the perfect joy. How many of you wake up in the morning remembering your dreams, how vivid are they? Mine happens to be so realistic I can taste the foods and smell the sweetness of the flowers in the fields.

The LOVE Balloon

The first stop we’ll hit today is the Cupid Inc Event that ends February 28th. So you still have time to snag this very large, very lovely free gift courtesy of the Novel Group! The gift is attainable by joining the free group and slapping the lovely LOVE balloon vendor in the middle of the event. This has to be one of the most thoughtful balloon assortments I have seen as a free gift!

All the shades of Love

Dahlia has some items up in a hunt that is adorable and so perfect for this themed love scene. They aren’t easy to find as the hunt items are scattered across the sim. You’ll be looking for items that can be found in stores that are marked with the -SHADES OF LOVE- sign. Each prize is L$20 so that makes this hunt a score!!

The hunt does not include green areas! It is only inside the buildings !!! So that’s a helpful hint for you! The hunt ends on February 25th. So you have time, but don’t wait around because this won’t be around forever!

Shades of Love Hunt

 

Dahlia Group Gift is that beautiful mylar balloon you see with 7 color options! The group is currently set to free for this week, making the gift 100% free. After this week though the group fee will be back to L$50, so don’t wait to snag this gift and their past ones while you can!

Healing with Crystals

Healing with Crystals

Hey Fab Free! I hope you are all having a great week and have been able to relax. It’s been a bit crazy on my end, but at least I’ve gotten a bit of downtime in-world. I am currently using these crystals for much-needed healing. Also, some shopping therapy always does the trick!

I ❤ American Bazaar

American Bazaar is totally one of my new favourite designers. I love their stuff! This dress is free on the Love for All Hunt. This is the cocktail dress in red. One of the things I love most about this designer is how many bodies they support. It can be hard to find clothes for some these curvy girl brands! See below for details on sizing. 🙂

I should mention, American Bazaar also has a sale on right now. I thought it was supposed to end on the 15th of February, but most of the pink and red vendors in the store are still set to 14 L a piece. If you join the free group and keep the tag on, it’s only 12 L per piece.  If you don’t want to go hunting for the cocktail dress, you can buy it this way for just 12 Linden. I pretty much bought out the whole place on the weekend, so go girls and load up on those sales items! This sale was supposed to end a couple days though, so go quick before it’s gone forever.  Make sure to grab all the free gifts while you’re there too! Yay!

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Ebody Curvy

Crystal Gacha

I’m a big fan of crystals. I love all the different types, what they represent, etc. The Magic Gem gacha at EscalateD is really cool for all the crystal lovers out there. You can hold them, have them hover over your shoulder, or place them in your house as decor. 

The Gacha can be played to win 9 different colours:

  • Sapphire
  • Topaz
  • Peridot
  • Citrine
  • Hyacinth
  • Saltcrystal
  • Garnet
  • Amethyst
  • Moonlight

Zoom over to EscalateD to play this gacha for 50L a pull!

Goodies @ micamee 

I’m also showing a freebie from micamee today. The pose I am wearing is from micamee, which you can pick up by joining their free group, and they also have a lot of free group gifts out. 

Have a good one, Fab Free!

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Hunting Hearts

Hunting Hearts

As promised, I’m back this evening to talk about the sweet little Valentines Day Hunt going on over at Poeme! If you know me, you know I love Poeme’s shop and the owner/designer, Elysiane Sapphire, is an absolute delight. She has very generously offered the Hunt prizes in a “Transferable” form so you can gift your sweetheart if you so desire. If that isn’t enough, she has also added a day to the Hunt to make sure we all have time to pick up these Valentines Day goodies.

I picked out the “Ruffle Me Up” dress in scarlet to show off as well as the “Love Me Red Choker” and the “Burning Love Tote”. But I picked up quite a few more things in the Hunt. Because you can never have too many plaid boots! Besides with everything only 15L this is one event that won’t wreck your pocketbook.

The Hunt now runs until February 15th so get over there and Hunt down some hearts!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

Cuteness

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Valentine’s is the perfect season for looking cute, which we all do. It’s time to get cute ladies, and today I’ll show you how to achieve this great look.

Another 500 L Giftcard!

I am unloading the news of gift credits this week, and Trend has a 500L Credit at their store out for group members. As far as I am aware, this offer ends and the credit expires on the 14th so go quickly. You must join their group to get in on this offer and the group costs 150L to join currently. I purchased the replay eyeshadow and queen eyelashes with the gift. I also grabbed all their group gifts at the back of the store, and a lipstick pack which is a free Second Life Frees & Offer (SLFO) group gift.

The Cuteness

The rest of my cute outfit is made up of freebies and cheapies I’ve been collecting all over the grid. Here are the details of my outfit:

  • The hair is another group gift in the no.match group. This is the “No Addiction” hair, and it is located at the top of the building (cam up to the roof to grab it). The no.match group costs 50 L to join.
  • The dress is a 10 L special by Ari-Pari at the Love Hurts Hunt. You can grab a total of 5 dresses at the hunt for 10 L each (see hunt key below). There are lots of designers offering cheap gifts at this event, and you can find more information about the hunt here.
  • The sparkly nails are a group gift at Ari-Pari, which costs 25 L to Join. The nails come in 6 colour options, and they are super cute.
  • These sandals, which I LOVE, are a free gift from Mangula at the Shop & Hop. They have a free 300 L credit there as well, so grab that reward while you’re there (it expires on Febuary 20th).
  • The pose I am using is also a free group gift at Mirinae. They have a bunch of free group gifts and they are well worth checking out if you are in need of new poses like I always am!

Xs and Os

Hey Hey FabFree! Welcome to the weekend, at last! And you know what you need to do this weekend? Shop and Hop! Cause that free gift bonanza is all over on the 17th. And when you aren’t shoppin’ an’ hoppin’ you might get a little Huntin’ in too.

My Shop and Hop gifts for the post are this super cute sweater and boots set from Envious (in the Aurelian Region) called ‘Kisses Love”. I love the bright flashy red and the thigh high boots are so unique. But get ready for some salty-ness from Juli… the set comes with a cute little short skirt too… a skirt that is so short, I didn’t feel comfortable even wearing it, let alone showing it on the blog. I don’t mind showing some skin… but I have my limits!   Ahem, anyway… this is not a dig at this designer or ANY designer or any one who likes showing off. It’s just not me.  So I tossed on my favorite jeans and still got a terrific outfit for Valentines day!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I am also enjoying this luscious cupcake treat free from Shop and Hop. This is the “Be Mine” cupcake from Boyberry. ( Aurelian Region) It looks so tasty… I must obey the cupcake. I am it’s now. The cupcake has a hold animation but it’s only 2LI if you want to use it as some sweet decor.

Last but not least is my new comfy sitting arrangement on which to eat my tasty treat. This is the “Love letters Ottoman and rug” from Ballade. This adorable set is the 1L prize for the “Love Hunt”. For that one little Linden, you get both the ottoman and the rug which can be used separately. The ottoman has ten poses in it that are well suited for guys or gals. Both pieces together are only a 5LI so you can easily add it to your decor. Oh, and while I was at Ballade… I saw that Poeme is have a sweet Valentines Day Hunt too. It was so nifty… well more about that in my next post! The Love Hunt runs until the 28th so get Hunting!

Oh Where Oh Where has Cupid Gone?

blasphemic_006

Hey fab gang!

I’ve been all over the grid recently helping to look for cupid in the Where’s Cupid Hunt. This is a 1L hunt and runs until Feb 14. While I didn’t actually *find* cupid (there’s still time!), I did find some awesome hunt gifts and have a sneak peek at three of them for you!

Too Sassy for You!

Blasphemic has this cute top in my photo above waiting for you in the hunt.  The saying on the shirt “Too Sassy for you!” resonated with me, brat that I am.  It’s got a pattern of open rips in the back and you can pair it nicely with jeans, short, skirt, anything.  I paired it with these jeans and ready to go! It comes in one size, fitted mesh and I’m wearing it over Maitreya in the picture.  I had no issues.

Never Stop Dreaming

Heart Attack and Vine

Heart Attack and Vine
February is approaching and Valentines (and Anti-Valentines) themed hunts are just around the corner.  I’ve been to a few different hunts on Windstruck over the past few months and I’ve always been impressed by how pretty the sim is and how nicely the hunts are set up. The Lost Hearts Hunt is no different.  The terrific free hunt gifts range from clothing to home decor.  Most of the clothing items are either unisex or there are corresponding male and female avatar outfits hidden separately.  The hearts are in plain sight, so no need to break out your magnifying glass and search in hard to see places.  I found plenty of great free gifts on the hunt, but my favorite had to be the Gothic Vine Gown.  It is a gorgeous strapless dress with a slit on the side.

The Lost Hearts Hunt runs until February 20th, so check out these wonderful gifts before the hunt comes to an end.

A Snowless Spot

A Snowless Spot

The snow is falling at an alarming rate in my part of the real world, so clearly that calls for a nice warm getaway in the sun in SL.  I have all my favourite things right by me:  A comfy spot to sit, pretty things to look at, a pile of crystals and of course a tower of macarons with a cup of tea to wash it down.  You can create your own perfect nook too!

Happy Anniversary, Raindale!

It is time to celebrate 5 years of Raindale on the grid, as they’re having a quite lovely celebration at their mainstore.  There are two ways to celebrate:  the wonderful pile of birthday gifts (which includes cake, tea, macarons, candles, flowers, and the gorgeous sideboard) – you can get these pretty things for free by joining the free group.  If you’re looking for more of a challenge, then take part in the hunt for all the fantastic furniture and landscaping items you can see in the hunt key below.  Each item costs just 5L, just look for the cupcakes and pay 5L for each!

Raindale 5th Anniversary!

You’d better not delay though, everything goes away on January 31st, and the group join price will increase.

Enjoy!
