Through Heart Shaped Glasses

Holes in My Heart
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’m back with some fun five-linden hunt gifts from the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt. There are so many cute quality gifts on this hunt. The hunt ends September 30th. For now I picked a few of the gifts to share with you. I hope you like these 5 linden HSGH prizes as much as I do!

There’s a Hole in My Heart

First, let’s talk about how cute this chair from The Artist Shed is! It definitely has an eclectic up-cycled feel. I love the way it looks just sitting in my living room. This 5 linden HSGH prize has a single pose (not shown) and is copy so you can set out more than one.

*Hint – A few shades of grey

So Emotional
Through Heart-shaped Lenses

If you somehow missed Astrid’s post with these too-cute glasses by Kotte, you should definitely check it out here. These detailed glasses with their heart-shaped lenses are the HSGH prize at Kotte. Like all the HSGH prizes, these are just 5 lindens. They also come with a hud that lets you change part of the frames, you can choose gold or silver. The glasses also have resize scripts for easy fitting.

*Hint – That blue is getting me high and making me low.

Is My Skeleton Showing?

I love this corset by The Little Bat. It’s perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Yes, I said season. lol Really, I’d wear this corset year-round. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud that gives you 12 color options for the skeleton graphic. Again, this awesome HSGH prize from The Little Bat is just 5 lindens.

*Hint – I love you so much you must kill me now…

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (XS -L)

Studded Flats

Just like the little black dresses, little black flats are a wardrobe staple. These cute flats by Lindy Modern & Retro just have a bit more attitude than most! They are just half of the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt prize at Lindy Modern & Retro. The HSGH prize includes the flats shown, and a matching pair of boots meant for classic system avatar feet. These detailed mesh flats come in 2 sizes.

*Hint – ALETA  bit of Marilyn goes a long way.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

It’s My Party, and I’ll Eat FroYo If I want To!

Sometimes a girl’s just got to have fun — even if it means throwing herself her very own FroYo Party! And since it’s my party, I’ll eat FroYo if I want to!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [1]

But first! We have to set up! Balloons and a table are a necessity! I found these great gift balloons for only 1L at the Sherbert main-store. They are currently a Halloween gift that have been set out for anyone, no group required! The colors are fun, and they are only 2 prims for the trio plus the spider textured brick they are tied to! That’s not a trick, that’s a treat!

I also made away with fabulous goodies at The Arcade Gacha. You’ll want to take a swing by there as well. This adorable Playful Pastimes Table by R(S)W & YKFK is only 1 prim and is currently a FREE gift at the event!

And because today is all about having fun… my pose! This fun pose by Sparrowtree Studio is called “Turkey Day Pose” and includes the spoon on your nose! (As well as other props such as turkey legs and such… all optional of course!). It may seem a little early for Thanksgiving, but I was thankful for this 1L marketplace find!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [2]

And what is a party without food? Again, The Arcade Gacha did not let me down. Not only did I pick up this fun rez-day cake for only 1 prim and 50L per spin at the [ keke ] Gacha but I also found this great FREE gift by Fancy Decor near their Gacha! Free FroYo — spoon included! It’s meant to be a hold-able food prop (it even has the animation for eating!), but I discovered that I could rez them out and they were only 1 prim each! Yay for that!

Astrid’s hair is also a lucky FREE find at the The Arcade Gacha! If you stop by .Blue Olive.‘s hair Gacha, this hair style there is a FREE gift. There are also two rare styles in the machine as well. The commons in the machine are a variety of bangs (this FREE style has an option to make the “free” bangs disappear so you can add the Gacha bangs on) or headbands. I’m only showing you the FREE style, and even by itself it’s adorable! The FREE style includes a color change hud with four colors for the hair as well as several colors for the bands on the pony tails too.

The picture above is also your chance to scope out Astrid’s septum nose piercing… a golden find if I don’t say so myself! These septum piercings by (Yummy) were just 50L per spin at The Arcade Gacha. I didn’t get the rare, but I landed the Ethereal style in gold, and was just as happy, as all of these nose rings are all gorgeously detailed!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [3]

Of course all of that partying means Astrid is all tuckered out. Good thing she has comfy clothes to fall asleep in.

Be sure to stop by Prism Designs and pick up this fabulous dress that is the September FREE group gift. The group is FREE to join. The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has some great details on it, including the cute cut-outs over the upper arms as well as a side-slits at the thighs.

Astrid’s shoes and socks are also a FREE gift, but you are going to have to hunt for them! You’ll need to make a stop by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes and look for the little red dress to pick up the FREE Women’s stuff Hunt gift that is being offered at this creator’s store to sport these pumps at you own party. The pumps themselves are black only, but they come with a color change hud that will tint the socks to any color you choose (it even includes an RGB adjuster to let you fine-tune if you want)!

Modern & Retro – Still Hip and Hot!

An extra long weekend hit here in the U.S with labor day, and for me it was time for some modern and retro fun! I was was totally feeling the Neon vibe too!

This meant I was hitting up a few stores for some great gifts, a hunt, and the Cart Wash Sale once again to top off my favorite looks with fabulous shoes from the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 1

I was really excited to see how generous (BYRNE) was this month with two great September Gifts! One is FREE in the group notices if you join the group and the group is FREE as well. Just check the past notices for the really terrific mesh Tartan Dress Shirt in blue you see Astrid sporting in the picture above. In came in all the standard sizes and the pack included both this bopping blue as well as a radical red. So you just can’t lose out on the deal!

Also pictured above is an amazing FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift that you will find if you hop over to Chop Zuey chop chop! and look for the little red T-shirt. Just find and buy the little red shirt for 0L and you’ll be the proud owner of this lovely “A Special Grace” Jewelry Set in Black, which includes a matching necklace, bracelet, and earrings!

My shoes in the picture above are just one of the many gorgeous Slink feet compatible offerings from the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. This sleek black pair is called Lindy Orla in Black, and like all the offerings on the cart was only 10L!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 3

I wasn’t done with (BYRNE) yet though, as they also had out a new FREE subscriber gift too! When I first checked, the subscriber was down, but the creator has fixed it, so if you recently checked and found yourself unable to get the gift from the history, go back and nab this fun neon style by clicking the subscriber and checking the history. Astrid is sporting this completely FREE and totally fun outfit in the picture above!

I also happened to drop by We ❤ RP after it opened up and ran into a New-to-Me creator called A:S:S. They were giving away a lovely set of bangle bracelets  called A:S:S deLuxe Renum at their booth that I just couldn’t pass up! You can see me sporting them in both the picture above and below. The package included 3 different styles — a small bangle, a double bangle and a large… for mix and match options. It was a FREE gift, no group required! Just stop by the booth and pick it up!

I paired my hip-hop neon (BYRNE) outfit above with another set of styling Lindy Modern & Retro Slink compatible pumps from the Cart Wash Sale — this time a pair called Lindy Rowyn Nude — and was just thrilled with the result for my 10L price tag. How much more awesome can you possibly get!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 2

I’ve got two more great gifts to mention — you won’t want to miss out! Astrid’s loose fitting mesh dress above (available in all the standard mesh sizes of course) is another terrific find you’ll want to take advantage of before it disappears. Be sure to head over to Tukinowaguma to pick up Group Gift No1 for FREE with your group tag (the group is FREE to join). And better yet, this terrific little number comes with a color change hud with 5 color choices to add to the versatility!

The fabulous duo color hair that Astrid is sporting in these pictures is also the new gift from little bones. called Chorus. Be sure to pick it up as well! It too comes with a terrific color change hud in sexy colors perfect for a modern or retro styling look and is too fun to miss out on. The gift is FREE with your little bones. group tag (the group is 100L to join but there are MANY past gifts to pick up if you have never joined the group, well worth the one time join fee!).

In the outfit above, I’m showcasing another amazing Lindy Modern & Retro Slink compatible shoe — this time a great set of flats that I just fell in love with. These are called Lindy Valda in black, and like all the others are also just 10L!

If you stop by the Cart Wash Sale, the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart is offering a terrific line up of Slink compatible shoes for ladies in quite a few styles, all for 10L. Don’t miss your chance to fill up your shoe closet for this great low price!

Why, yes! I would walk a mile in these shoes!

Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes has a motto: Shoes… need I say more? And nope, I don’t need to say more! Shoes from Lindy’s have never disappointed me and this Cart is full of gorgeous examples. I had that same trouble I’m having with all these carts: what do I choose to show!

PicMonkey Collage

SO I picked my favorites. First is ‘Eila’ with the back lacing and solid silver rivets. Next is Hanna with lots of buckles and belts. And last but not least is Meshell in a racy leopard print. Like all of Lindy’s shoes these are gorgeous builds. These particular shoes, except for the Naomi style which are for Slink High Feet,  are for system feet so if you haven’t gone over to mesh you can still have stylin’ footwear.

Delicious Reds

Hello again, my dears and happy happy Friday! The ‘love-fest’ Hunts are going strong but you only have a few days left for many of them. So let’s jump in to the 0L  Add Some Red Hunt from Fi’s Hunts.

I was able to make this nifty outfit almost exclusively from the Hunt prizes! First is the  blouse from Get Frocked. I love the peplum hem and the soft velvet look of the fabric. The fact that it’s covered in cute little hearts is just frosting on the cake!

Delicious Reds

There is some truly lovely jewelry in this Hunt and I had a hard time choosing one to show. But I think the Harlequin Set from Exquisite Jewellery is the perfect fit for the look I’m going for. You get the earrings and the necklace in the prize with commands to turn the ‘bling’ on and off. The necklace actually beats like a heart when you first put it on!

Don’t you love the glasses? I haven’t taken them off since I opened the prize box! These are the Red Tartan Glasses from The Vintage Touch.  Vintage Touch is doing some awesome work and I love seeing their name on a Hunt.  (And don’t forget to check out their new Gift at the FabFree Headquarters too)

Last but not least are the Inez Booties from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. As always, Lindys has put out a fantastic pair of shoes for this Hunt. I love the metal details and that rich crimson color.

The Add Some Red Hunt runs until Feb. 28 so you still have some time to add that pop of color to your SL closet!

A little Winter Fantasy

Hello, My Dears! The count down to the new year is on but there’s plenty of time for another Hunt. I picked the Winter Fantasy Hunt from Melnaka Events. Their moto is “where the fun in SL begins” and they certainly have lived up to that with the huge  0L Hunt. There are ninety six stops so there’s sure to be something for just about everyone. One of the nifty things about a large hunt is the variety of prizes you can find. My first look is a sweet modern casual.

winterfantasy1_001

Perfect for crisp days, this gray sweater and snowflake scarf are the female prize from Ambient. And the men’s prize is just as nice. I paired it with Lindy’s super cute boots. I truly love Lindy’s boots and shoes and these are no exception to the rule. Beautifully made, they are sure to be favorites.

winterfantasy2_002

Rounding out this look is Nail Me’s Hunt prize (Pru showed us here!). All 4 nail designs are vibrant blue and white perfect for winter. Aren’t the snowflakes just adorable?

 

winterfantasy2_001

 

Next up is C&N’s stunning gown: Morticia.  I was so impressed with how elegant and regal it looks. The gold details make it. I included a picture of the back so you can see that the precision and attention to details are complete.

winterfantasy5_001

winterfantasy6_001

Lastly, Feyline has given us complete outfit that is the very definition of ‘winter fantasy’.  The prize includes all the clothing, tattoos, flowers for your hair, a necklace, the shimmery over skirt and the wings! There are sandals as well but I like the bare foot look too. And, yes, there’s a men’s version in the prize.
