Dream a Summer Dream

Dream a Summer Dream

Sometimes we need to recharge… take a moment to close our eyes and dream. I found the perfect sim for it if you like art and books. You might want to stop by the Arts and Literary Salon where there is book discussions and art displays for you to enjoy.

I took the chance to put together a dreamy summer look while I enjoyed one of the blankets under a charming little tree I found. My look is courtesy of Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning.

First, I picked up the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that Wicca’s Wardrobe is generously contributing to this hunt as a prize. It is this lovely strawberry dress in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The box also includes two texture patterns of the dress, so you get not only the dress I am showing, but one additional pattern. And only 1L for all of this strawberry goodness!

I was pleased to discover that the August group gift at Wicca’s Wardrobe was a sexy pair of boots that matched the dress quite nicely. These over the knee dragon boots come in standard mesh as well as slink fits. To get them to fit my Maitreya body, I simply removed my feet. They are highly detailed, and there is a male version of the boots out for group members as well. If you are not already a member, the group fee is 50L, but you get access to many past group gifts as well as these fantastic boots, making it well worth your join fee.

I’m off for a nap and a dream. Enjoy your day!

Aries

Heyya FabFree!

Aries

It’s Saturday and that means it’s Juli’s Hunt Day!  I’m back on the Women’s Stuff Hunt because, wow, there’s some nifty prizes for this round! My first show-off is from BlueMoon Enterprise which never fails to amaze. This is the ‘Solas’ gown and it’s the free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize. This gorgeous gown comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The bow and the gauzy skirts are all a very delicate looking Flexi. Normally, I’m not crazy about Flexi but this is so very well made it just flows and I love it. The gown can be worn without the Flexi pieces for a more modern sleek look as well.

In my wanders around the grid, I stopped in to Blues Hair to see what was new and I was fortunate enough to snag one of the free Lucky Board prizes that perfectly matches with my new gown. This is ‘Aries’ and it includes the fantastic horns you see. The gift comes with a HUD for the horns containing ten natural looking colors. The hair’s HUD also has ten pretty pastel colors that come in ‘roots’ and regular versions. One note, the hair and the horns are one item and they cannot be worn separately.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs until August 31 so get out there and hunt! One quick note – Some of the designers in the Women’s Stuff Hunt have placed their prizes for 1L or for 0L… either way you’re going to get a really great gift!:)

Hibiscus Morning

Hello hello, FabFree!

Hibiscus Morning

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is on and I am almost overwhelmed with all of the great prizes the designers have turned in this time. It was really hard to pick what I wanted to show off first! But I guess that’s kind of a cool problem to have.:)

I picked this super cute shorts and top set from LOo LOo and Platypus, one because the store name kills me and two because I love this set. This is the ‘Hibiscus’ shorts and top set and you can pick it up for 1 little linden.  Each piece is separate and comes with a good alpha layer. Each piece comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and they also come with appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.  Not only do you get the clothes, you also get the pretty red flower for your hair.  Just a perfect look for a morning stroll on the beach with a friend, don’t ya think?

I also wanted to show off my cute sneakers from one of my ‘go -to’ designers: More than Ever.  These are the ‘Wildflower Low Tops’ and they are the current in-store gacha. You can find eighteen commons in every color imaginable and three Rares with a little friend on them. At 50L per play you can fill up your closet. The sneakers come with a good alpha and fit my SLink flat Feet beautifully.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs all of this August but you won’t want to wait to hunt down some seriously cool prizes.

Carnival

Hello and Happy Friday FabFree!

Carnival

I am loving the gothic creepy vibe of the Carnival of Souls Hunt this year. Halloween can’t come soon enough for me and this hunt has got me ready for trick or treating in August. Too early? Maybe a little….  anyways…

This is the ‘Raquel’ outfit from Sweet Intoxications and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. That one little linden will get you the top and the pants and the ribbon choker AND the fantastic shoes. Each piece is separate and the choker is resizable for a great fit. The top comes in Fitmesh sizes XS-XL plus Belleza, Maitreya and SLink appliers. The pants come in those same appliers plus an Omega applier and a classic system pants layer. And these shoes! Love ’em.  The shoes are for SLink High Feet.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

It’s Womenstuff Time

Snapshot_003
Hey there FabFree Readers! The Womenstuff Hunt is back on again through the duration of August, and Purplemoon Creations has a flavourful and exotic hunt prize for you!  All you need to do to obtain a free copy of your very own Lyuba Skirt as I am displaying today, is locate the hidden red t-shirt hunt icon at the Purplemoon Creations store.

The Lyuba Skirt (which is the hunt prize!) comes with a texture change hud that allows for six skirt / scarf colours as well as an option to add or remove the scarf.  The sizes included are XXS-L mesh, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

The Ariel Shell Bra that I have chosen to wear with my new skirt is by Candydoll and is part of the Ariel Gacha Set that you can play for (75L per play) at The Epiphany Event, but I am sure there are tons of cute tops that would fit the bill – possibly already in your inventory!

In fact… I’m curious which top YOU decide to wear with your Lyuba Skirt!  Pop a picture into our flickr pool and show off your style :).  Everyone is welcome – blogger or not!

ps.  Make sure you check out the group gift that is available at Purplemoon Creations while you are there hunting down that little t-shirt.  Astrid was awesome enough to show it off recently [HERE]!

Master & Mistress of Ceremonies

Master and Mistress of Ceremonies

It’s not Halloween yet, but that is no excuse to avoid good cosplay! Or just good Gothic fun. Loki and I did a little hunting and came up good with a couple of outfits you won’t want to miss out on.

You’re seeing us in Roped Passion’s matching gift for Ladies and Men for the Carnival of Souls Hunt. Just 1L will get you this is the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies outfits. Both come in all the standard mesh sizes and with a good alpha layer (P.S. if you picked up the outfit earlier before the alpha layer was out, you can pick up the alpha layer for free in a box at the front of the store now!).

The lady’s outfit includes this gorgeously detailed corset with roses and skulls, a pair of panties, a bra, and a necklace. You will also get a top hat (not shown).

The men’s outfit is an exquisite suit that comes in one piece for easy fitting and wear. You’ll need your own shoes, but a plain black pair will do nicely.

Ceremonies 2

Love tipped me off on a gift I didn’t want to miss out on, and if you are a LeLutka mesh head wearer, you may want to pick this one up too. The Laura Hurley group is FREE to join, and if you stop by the main-store you can pick up this beautiful LeLutka head applier called “Jojo” for FREE as the current group gift. I fell in love with the beautiful skin tone, the beauty mark on the left side near the mouth/chin and the deep wine colored lips. Since I wear a Maitreya body, I was able to find an applier nearby for 200L and I was set for that one cost, head to toe!

Book Learnin’

Heyya FabFree!

Book Learnin'

August has brought us a ton of new hunts and, of course, some of those hunts are ‘back to school’. I picked this sweet little number from Laysta’s Nest for that ‘sexy librarian’ look. This is the cropped shirt and school skirt for the 1L School drools Hunt.  The shirt and skirt are separate pieces  and each comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L. However, there are no alpha layers included in the prize. I had to struggle a bit to find alphas in my inventory that fit but got it after a bit of wrangling.

The School Drools Hunt runs until August 30th for your hunting pleasure!

Scrabble

Scrabble

This 1L hunt gift from The Man Cave was just what I needed to spell “classic look” and I took that to heart for a break and a game of Scrabble. You’ll find this gift as part of the Fall of Man Back to School Hunt. When you land, give the area a bit of time to rezz (you’ll find yourself at a landing point) and head to The Man Cave store to look for the Book that is the 1L Prize.

Inside the box you’ll find two different packages, though each contains the Jayke outfit (both this classically styled shirt with the matching pants). The shirt comes in a tucked-in or un-tucked version and the pants fit nicely with boots or dress flats. One box will contain a mesh outfit with alphas for a standard system avatar, the other will contain the same mesh outfit to fit a variety of mesh bodies, including: Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, and TMP.
