This is the “St. Patty’s Shirt 1” and “St. Patty’s Skirt 1” from Blink2Wink and you can grab them for a little hunting and 5L each. There is one other shirt and another skirt as well as a pair of boots up for grabs at Blick2Wink as well. Each are 5L and well worth the hunting.

Oui, Oui, I Have Been Hunting!

Hey gang,

One of the neatest things about sl (yes I said neat) is that you can travel just about anyplace.  You can sort of see things you will never get to see in real life.  Which I suppose is better than nothing!

So it seems I took a little side trip to someplace in France for this photo of my latest goody from the Fab Free Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt.  This time my find comes from Lybra, They have a whole bunch of hunt items, 5L each and you can put together these outfit, mix and match, or match and match!  I chose to match.  (for a change!  ha!)

These outfits fit:

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Lybra collection includes top, leggings and shoes.  Just find the little neon rainbow!  I put the key below so you can see the color options. Happy hunting!

Something Blue

Something Blue

Heyya Fab Readers! Do y’all remember that dress a few years back that was going around FaceBook that was either blue or gold? Everyone saw the colors a little different?  That’s what this cute mini from LUXE Paris reminds me of.  The name of the dress is “Blueberry”. But I see it as more grey than blue.  Kind of a steel grey.

Anyway, whatever color it is… blue, grey or somewhere inbetween, I really love the classic look of this dress. I’d wear it to a nice reception or party and know I was turning heads. So can you if you join the Second Life Frees and Offers free group and head over to LUXE Paris and pick it up.  While you’re there, look around the store. There are several free gifts scattered around that need no group to claim.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

WOW… it’s the end of November… already! Winter is right around the corner. Of course, lot’s of us have already seen snow and cold temps so that corner is not far off.  With all this weather, I decided to do a one store indoors Hunt for the Blog today.

When I got the notice that LsR was doing a 15L in store Winter Hunt, I hollered at Aline, “Did you get this? Let’s go hunt, girl!” And we jumped right in! Cause great minds think alike! And we even ended up picking very similar outfits for some matchy matchy goodness.

I’m wearing the frilly little ‘Sexy Sannae’ dress. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of the ruffle on both the sleeves and the bodice. Be sure to wear your nice panties with this one, ladies cause it is a little cheeky. 😉

Aline picked out the ‘Sexy Yanika’ dress today. If you pick this one too, you’ll actually get three dresses for your 15L prize money. The dress comes in white, white with a polka dot print and a white lace pattern. Plus a HUD to change the color of the buttons.

Sizes Included for Both

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite *
  • SLink – Hourglass

* Yanika doesn’t include the Maitreya Petite size

The LsR Winter Hunt only runs until the 5th of December so hurry hurry and get your hunt on!

The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

One Year Later…

One Year Later...

Hello Fabulouses!  Well, it’s hard to believe it, but this week marks one year of blogging with Fab Free!  So much has happened in the past year for me in RL, but what hasn’t changed is how much I love blogging and sharing my adventures with Ripley.  I truly enjoy seeking out Fabulous Finds, and want to thank our wonderful readers for their support.  Reading your comments really makes my day!  I feel so blessed to be a part of the Fab Free team, and look forward to continuing to write far into the future.

Just Bluetiful…

Today, I am sporting the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of the Third Life Group.  The Lounge Outfit features a soft blue and white striped top with a knotted hemline, and long, comfy, stretchy pants – perfect for a lazy day.  I seriously would LOVE to wear this outfit in real life!  It offers a scooped neckline, white cuffs on the sleeves, and a coordinating white waistband on the pants.  Since the gift contains classic mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, it is sure to fit just about anyone.  The pants run long, and I wasn’t able to get my flat feet to work with them, but my high foot style was just right.  The outfit is worn as a complete set, so you can’t mix and match with other wardrobe components, but I thought the top and the pants were ideally suited for each other.  Although the Third Life Group has a 10L join fee, there are many goodies available for group members from a variety of designers, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

A Lucky Hair Day

Ripley and I decided to check out a new-to-us hair shop today called Mello, and I’m so glad we did!  Right in the entry way, there are 12 Lucky Boards for anyone, and 6 members-only boards packed with a variety of cute hairstyles.  Since joining the group was completely free, I decided to go for it, and see what happened.  Sure enough, that magical “K” appeared on one of the group-only boards, and I gleefully scooped up the Jaded hairstyle in “Blondies.”  After doing a little happy dance, I teleported on home to try out my prize.  Ripley took one look, and wagged his tail happily with approval.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover the gift included a texture HUD packed with 16 options.  This is sure to become one of my “go-to” hairstyles.

The Real Pupster

The Pupster

Because I mention him so often in my blog posts, I thought you might like a peek at the real-life pupster.  He’s my pride and joy, and such a good boy!  Thank you again, wonderful readers, for your support over the past 12 months.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!
