The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

How is this post about zombies?

How is this post about Zombies?

Hey there, FabFree!  Monday got ya down? It could be worse… you could be a zombi instead of just feeling like one! But Grumble is telling me that everything is Better with Zombies.  Confused yet?  I can explain. See, Grumble is hosting a sweet mini hunt in the stores of their mall running along the Twisted Hunt. And they’re calling it the “Everything is better with Zombies” Hunt. I assure you that this mini hunt is not at all like the Twisted Hunt which is as hard as it’s rumored to be. The Zombie hunt is just for fun and for great free prizes, of course!

Speaking of great prizes, I am in love with these super cute pajamas from Ari-Pari, “Creepy Monsters.” The roving eyeballs are creepily adorable! You get the top and shorts as two separate pieces and a HUD for five color choices. The top and shorts can be colored separately as well for fun mix and match.

Sizes Included

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

If you look close you’ll see my second gift from the Hunt, the Barrow’s Landing Bracelet from Loordes of London. I don’t usually show too much jewelry but this bracelet is so nice. The stones are like sea glass or polished pebbles. I just love it.

The “Everything is Better With Zombies” Hunt (( <- This LM will take you to Grumble’s main store and a kiosk of photos of the Hunt Prizes)) will run until Sept 30th so shuffle over to the Grumble mall and get to hunting!

Top + Shorts – Ari-Pari @ Grumble Mall – Creepy Monster Set – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Jewelry – Loordes of London @ Grumble Mall – Barrow’s Landing Bracelet – FREE/0L – Free prize for the “everything is Better With Zombies Hunt

Uber Cuteness @ The Beach

Bold Llama Better @ the Beach

I remember with fondness the many hours I spent on the beaches of Florida’s panhandle or sailing on my friend’s catboat. Of course those days are over now. These days I visit beaches in Second Life because it’s much cooler and better for my skin. I still have some beach vibes in me.

Hunt Goodies

As we eased into August new hunts started. The Save the Sea Hunt 2 benefits the IKSDP-Harambee Project Gwassi Kenya, a non-profit association that aims at the self-development of the Nyandiwa community on the shores of Lake Victoria (Kenya). Items on this hunt are $3L each.

My Better at the Beach Tee by The Bold Llama T – Shirt Co. speaks to how uncomplicated & freeing it can be to actually be on a beach. I would def wear this in the real world. Graphic tees are my thing in both lives.

Sizes

  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy Fine
  • Standard Sizes

I wandered over to the 1 Hundred store today to pick up a sale item. I was excited to see a $10L find! The cute skirt I’m showing is from the Say It Mini Set. It comes with a Tiny Kini top (not shown here). The whole outfit is very cute as is everything there.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglasss
  • Legacy

The Friend or Foe 6.0 Hunt runs until August 18th. This great watch from Loordes of London called Killing Time has options for either wrist. If you’re obsessed by time wear both!

Finally, my backdrop, The Monkey Island, is a group gift from The Bearded Guy. The group costs $75L to join. Once you have the tag there is an entire wall of group gifts. If you take lot of photos you need to join this group. And of course a $30L gacha sale is underway before they all poof into the SL Magnetosphere.

Whew! I had a lot to say today!

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!

You have just a bit over 24 hours left to do the hunt, so it’s time to get bunny hopping! These goodies are simply adorable and you don’t want to miss out.

I’m Still Standing

I'm Still Standing

There are some songs that give you a kick in the pants and boost your mood just when you need it the most.  One of those songs for me is “I’m Still Standing” by Elton John.  I’m not even the biggest Elton John fan (throw rocks if you must), but this song makes me pick myself up and get back at it.  Do you have a song that makes you feel that way too?

Stop One

I know there have been a ridiculous amount of events with free gifts recently, and I have literally zero complaints about it!  Yet another has appeared with some free gifts for you – and that’s the 35L Sales May Event.  Not only do they have deeply discounted goods available, but each stall has a free gift for members of their free to join group.  Here’s what I found!

  • FREE Jeans by Loordes of London sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, Venus, XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • FREE Shoes by Doré Papillon Boutique sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • FREE Hair by Alantori with an extensive colour HUD

There’s loads more to be had!  The 35L Sales Event is running until May 31st!

Stop 2

Belle Époque recently updated their Fab Free group gift, and I love every single second of it.  I am a massive sucker for anything that has an eye on it.  I may have mentioned it before – but even in RL I wear something with an eye on it at all times!  When Belle Époque advertised this amazing gift I pounced all over it!  As always, the Fab Free Inworld group is always free to join and is a great spot for news, gifts, and friendship!

You’re still standing!  You’ve got this!

Dapper Bunny

Dapper Bunny

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I hope this day finds you well. I don’t know about you, but I needed to get out of the house, even if it was just in virtual reality. If you’re looking for a way to spend a bit of time, there are several hunts happening around the grid right now.

The Hopping Along Hunt is a dollarbie hunt with 22 total stops, not too long, but still plenty to keep you busy.  The hunt runs from now until the end of April and the prizes appear to be women’s clothing, including shoes and accessories, as well as Easter themed décor. I hunted my dapper bunny tank top at The Bold Llama, and my cute green purse at Loordes of London.

Shirt Sizes Included: Ocacin, Belleza Frey, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Belleza Freya, Matireya Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Ebody, Classic Mesh, Alpha Layer, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique

Hints:

The Bold Llama – “Go left, look up, and remember no one puts Baby in a corner except llamas.” 

Loordes of London – “Look near the hunt poster.”
