With such a massive world to explore like Second Life, it’s hard to keep up with all the Hunts and fairs and events happening all over the place. Happily, I stumbled across one I had never seen before and it turned out to be a bonanza of gifts and awesome shopping!

The Beauty Sales Event is a monthly event opening on the 21rst of the month and closing again on the 11th.  Since I’m new to this event I don’t know if each round is so packed full of gifts or if this is a special occasion. But I gleefully bounced around the booths picking up allll the free gifts.

Like this simply gorgeous sweater from Hilly Haalan. Most of you know Hilly Haalan is a major designer on Second Life and with clothes like the ‘Jazzy Sweater’ you will see why. This sweater is so perfectly made you can zoom in and still see details and there’s the perfect fit, even when moving around. Plus, and here is where I get all giddy, you get a HUD with 25 choices to change the color of the main sweater, the cuffs and trim, the buttons, the leather bits around the buttons, and even the cords holding the buttons! That is a LOT of choice! There’s also a resizable scarf with 25 choices of color/patterns as well. A-maze-balls!

The Beauty Sales Event still has about 2 weeks to go so you have some time to get over there but don’t miss it! I’ll be back tomorrow with a coupe other gifts to show off ’cause I couldn’t pick just one.

Hey there, FabFree! I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful time and ate alllll the good stuff! I sure did! And we have leftovers for days.  Of course, today was Black Friday here in the real world. I’m still stuck in quarantine here in New York but I’m sure some folks went out and got those deals.

I stayed in and got a great deal too! And didn’t risk messing with the Covid. I picked up this super chic little plaid dress from Pink Mango Fashion for free! Well.. free or 10L depending on how you look at it. This is the ‘Jolene’ mini dress and it’s the free gift for the TeleportHUB group. I say 10L because that’s what it’ll cost you to join the group. Just 10 little Lindens! Just this dress alone is worth the one time join up fee. Plus there are tons of free gifts for you once you do join up!

So don’t delay… put on that tag and grab your freebies!

Sweeter as the days go by

Sweeter as the days go by

Well, hey there FabFree! Long time no see!  I am finally settling into the new place here in New York. Road tripping all the way from Texas was quite the adventure with all my kitties in tow. But we all did great and it really was smooth sailing. But wooowee, it’s cold up here compared to Texas! It’s time to break out the boots and snuggly sweaters in real life!

Ahlure is breaking out the sweater for us in this months free Group Gift too. This is the ‘Snuggles’ dress.  Now, the interesting thing about this dress is that you get two patterns on the HUD; this leather patch one I’m showing and a stripes all over one. Then you get a color picker so you can tint your own colors to your hearts content.  I know I have a couple of shoes/boots and socks combos I will be using since I can make the dress match perfectly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

A nifty new dress needs some nifty new boots, right? Of course! I picked up these “Steampunk” boots by La Perla for just 1L over at the Orsy Event . Like anything ‘steam’ and/or ‘boots’, these are going to get a lot of wear from me!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Feeling the Love

Feeling the Love

Hey FabFree! Is it finally getting to be Fall where you are? Well… except for my friends on the other side of the globe who are welcoming Spring!  Texas, especially southern Texas, is very late to get Fall. It’s November and the tree here are just now starting to turn and the nights are getting chilly. But our days are so perfectly pleasant now. Warm and breezy and just awesome. You can still really enjoy lighter clothes but you may need a sweater later.

LOL, ok now that you have the weather report from South Texas… let’s get to the outfit that inspired my meteorological musings.

This is the “Autumn Love” mini dress and boots from Lurve.  I was so tickled to pick this beauty up for free today. I just joined the ‘FashioNable’ group for free and grabbed my new favorite outfit!  FashioNable group is very similar to Teleport HUB or Second Life Free and Offers, the group will alert you to lots of new and free or discounted items. Something all us bargain hunters need in our bag of tricks!  As with most of these gifts, they can change at any time so hurry down to Lurve and get your gift on!

One quick note, I slipped on a tee under the beautiful denim vest. I think it makes it look just that much more ‘autumn-y’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Jomo – Fox, Werewolf
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Seeking and dreaming. I like that. And here I thought Lovecraft was all demons and Deep Ones.  And if you thought the Call of Lovecraft event was all hunt you’d be mistaken too. I found a lovely Victorian look Gacha from Antaya there!

This is the Clementine Gacha and amazingly, it’s only 25L per play! Look at this gorgeous gown… 25L! In fact, I put this entire outfit together for just 75L in pulls. I wasn’t able to get the little top hat fascinator but I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Gown.  Everything is so beautifully made, every detail is perfect! Add a few holiday touches and this would be perfect for Christmas, wouldn’t it?!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Call of Lovecraft runs until November 21 so don’t miss out.

I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
~ Aqua – Barbie Girl

Okay, I have to admit. I wasn’t into Barbies when I was a kid. Except how they could sit on my Breyer horses. But every now and then, I’d go on a fashion fling and all the Barbies ( and the horses) all got fancy new clothes. Now… I play dress up everyday! 😉

So… the Barbie Hunt caught my eye with all the great designers and cute prizes. Then I saw how this top and these jeans went perfectly together! I love it when that happens!

First is the ‘Summer Fun’ top from Candie Queen… or maybe from Moon Tribe. The top says Candie Queen… but it’s in the Moon Tribe store. I don’t know what to tell ya. All I can do is give you the landmark I used to pick up this cute little crop. Even the little bit of confusion is worth getting this top. It’s beautifully made and you get a HUD for twenty color choices. It’s a great addition to any closet.

Boo, Update ->

It appears that Moon Tribe/Candie Queen has completely dropped off the Grid. None of the LM work now. I just hate this, sorry guys. 😦

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Next is this great pair of jeans. I do love paisley and the pastel colors make me even more happy. Of course, Loordes of London makes a fantastic product and these are no different. The “Teramo Jeans 14” only come in the classic Mesh sizes but I had no problem fitting them to my Maitreya body. Plus, the mesh sizing means everyone clinging to their system bods can enjoy these jeans too!

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh sizes – XXS – L

The Barbie Hunt runs until the end of the month so you have plenty of time to hunt down all the pink prizes!

Another one of my favorite designers has a ton of those hunts going on right now and that’s The Sissy Bar. You could do all your Halloween hunting right here! I picked this prize for the Monster Mash Hunt because it’s a great fall outfit so it can go well past Halloween in your closet. This is the “Monster Mash Sweater and Leggings” and you can pick it up for just 1L.  The colors and details are so nicely done, I think I’ll be wearing this one a lot. But… there’s always a but… The Monster Mash Hunt ends on the 31rst so hurry hurry!

I will go where crows go…

I will go where crows go

Hello again, FabFree. I guess you can tell by my picture tonight, I’m really getting into the spirit of the holiday now. I love this spooky yet so elegant classic gown. I feel like a glamourous fem fatale who is surly up to no good. But you’re going to love how she drags you down.

… and I will know what crows know

This is the ‘Murder of Crows’ gown from Silvan Moon Design. You can get this stunning Victorian gown for free if you’re doing the Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. I know you only have a few days to get in on this hunt but it’s so worth it. The quality of the gifts is just awesome!  As you can certainly see here. ‘Murder’ comes with the gorgeous gown, the lofty hat and a detachable long train. It truly is a stunner.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Fallen

Fallen

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

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

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!
