Rainbows and Fireworks

Rainbows and Fireworks

It’s yet another perfect day to head to the beach.  Aren’t all days in SL perfect for the beach?  Well, this is definitely a very perfect one.  I’m back in bikini goodness, with an awesome drink.  I may not be American, but I wish all our readers in the US a very happy day of Americanisms!

Kitted Out

My very rainbow bikini is a free group gift over at Reed.  I seem to have a collection of bikinis these days, which really isn’t such a bad thing since I spend so much time in the waves in SL.  I think I see more virtual water than real water, and I’m not quite sure what that says about me… I choose to embrace it.  Anywhos, join the Reed group for free, then click on the vendor in the group gift corner.  There are a bunch of other group gifts as well as lucky boards for you to have some fun with!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Perky

Two Freebs

I also happen to love a good accessory moment, and the two additions to my look today just make my outfit a bit more special.  You’ll find this pretty moon circlet on the counter at Michan for free (no group join required) and the fun drink to celebrate the 4th of July is over on the counter at ChicChica for free as well, just click on the box!  Yay!

See you at the beach!

The Fabulous Farmer’s Market!

Amais - Kacey

My gentle readers…I’ve just returned from a week in Vegas.  It was for RL work, but STILL…Vegas!  I came back to SL to find all sorts of fun fabulous things including The Farmer’s Market!  To get these goodies, you go to each store and find the farm stand.  Everything is less than 80L.  This cute outfit named Kacey is by Amias.  This color cost 75L, but there are other colors at full price.  The necklace, adorably enough, is ALSO called Kacey (did they plan that?), and cost 65L at Michan.  There are several different metal choices, but each comes with a HUD for the gem.  The silver is pictured below.

Michan - Kacey

As I catch up with all the SL goodies out on the grid, I found the Farmer’s Market to be a lot of fun!!!

Fall in Love with MadPea!

MadPeas Rock!!!!

I have a confession. I was all set to do an epic post about Shop & Hop and bridal clothing…and then…well…I got sidetracked. The MadPea Cupid Catastrophe hunt became my main, um, obsession, um, focus? I’ve been a huge fan of MadPea since back in the days of building literary environments.

The HUD to participate in the hunt can be found at the HQ for the MadPea Cupid Catastrophe or the MadPea mainstore. The hunt HUD cost is 100L and comes with the most adorable heart shaped fly swatter ever created. For 100L, you get to run around the grid finding really cool places you’ve never heard of while swatting adorable Cupittos!!! You see, they stole all the little Cupids and are holding them hostage and OUR job is to free them!! It’s insanely fun, and I’ve met a lot of really awesome players and great places to take FabFree photos!

The wee Cupittos all have great names like Meany Greeny and Burpy Purpy, and they carry different point values. Even if you hunt with a pal, the point values are different for each of you because it’s totally random. Sometimes, you DO get skunked with a puff of smoke and zero points, but some include adorable prizes…and these are the prizes I am featuring today!!

In the picture are all the prizes I’ve won so far just hunting around.  I am holding the Key to My Heart sign, and the Valentine’s Banner is behind me.  The chocolates, the two Yin/Yang candles, sunglasses, and the heart basket pair really well with this beautiful tea light and candle set.  The little rug at my feet is another cool prize. 

As you hunt, you get points, and like a cool lovers’ carnival, those points can be exchanged for prizes. The more you squish, the more points you get and the more prizes you can buy! The prizes are nice, too. I have my eye on some heart shaped lights and Valentine letters and cookies. You can buy for yourself OR send some cute prizes to your best SL mates! I sent cookie letters to my new friend, Dino, because he helped me learn how to use the HUD.  I am saving up my points, though, because they release a new prize every day, and I don’t want to spend all my clams until I know my choices.

So how does this hunt work? Well you know, dear Fabbies, I hate complicated things. So, It isn’t necessary to tote around the adorable fly swatter unless you want to…and I did for at least a solid day, being the Duchess of Dorks that I am.  But, really, all you have to do is just wear the HUD and follow it.

The HUD is super simple to use. Basically, all the dots on the radar are Cupittos to squish. Your job is to get them into the center circle, squish them and release a cupid who wants to give you points or prizes! When you are successful, you will get a message like, “You have found a new Burpy Purpy. It contains a Chubby Cupid worth 50 points” and a cupid pops up on your screen. As you squish more of them, you get achievement awards.

Watch your HUD. If the shape is a dot, you are on the same level as the Cupitto. If it’s above you, the arrow points up….it’s below you if the arrow points down. Keep your sounds on because the sonar beeps faster as you get closer to one! Once you find it, you simply click on it, and ta-da you get points, prizes or…sometimes you do get skunked! The HUD calculates your success and you have found all the Cupittos once your head is clear and you don’t hear any more beeping.

To go to the next location, you click the little map icon on the HUD. It’s smart, so it only takes you to places where you’ve not yet found a Cupitto. But, you will return to same locations if they’ve put out new ones. The HUD won’t show you ones you’ve already squished. You can check your stats by clicking the little lines icon. The heart allows you to favorite cool places you’ve visted, and the gift box takes you to the place where you can redeem your points for cool prizes. The Mad Pea icon gives you a HUD menu with all sorts of choices to track your success, look at rankings, or review the FAQs.

The Hunt

If you want to HOST Cupittos on your land or at your store, you can buy the different types at the MadPea mainstore.  They cost between 1000-7000 depending on whether you are an Unlimited MadPea Member (5000L buy-in) or not.  I placed some on my personal RP Scotland sim, and it’s been fun watching folks try to navigate the gauntlet to get a Cupitto!

Overall, this is a fun way to spend some time in SL.  I hope I see you out there!!!

The Love Shack

The Love Shack

It’s beginning to look a lot like… SHOP & HOP!  Yaaaaaaaay!  Oh gosh, we are always so entirely spoiled when Shop & Hop rolls around.  Plenty of gifts, all of them free.  I’m nipping out into the cold just to pose very meaningfully in a way to underscore just how excited I am for all things pink, red, and completely sweet.

Love is in the Air

Phew ok, calm down Aline.  Breathe!  As you may (or may not know), we at FabFree basically venture out into the world of our own volition, find things we want to blog, pay any associated fees, join the groups etc etc etc.  It’s not an easy task, but we all love it very much.  When it comes to Shop & Hop, it’s a massive undertaking with 10 shopping regions and over 200 stores to visit.  Today is early access day, so I made my way over and picked up as much as I could, unboxed it, tried it all on and put together my faves.  Phew!  Anyway, keep reading to find out how to get early access and where to find direct links to every store.  Here’s what I picked up!

  • FREE dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite & Perky in both opaque and transparent versions
  • FREE bracelets by Michan (see closeup below)
  • FREE cookie by Hangry in several different colours
  • FREE hair and hat by Elikatira with a massive HUD included

 

Shop & Hop officially opens tomorrow, but you can join the SL Birthday group to get in early.  You’ll find all the participating stores and direct slurls right HERE.

Copy and paste this code into chat to join the group: secondlife:///app/group/8db35111-979b-14a7-6a74-b47be86ce04f/about

You’ll be unpacking foreveeeerrrrr!

A Touch Of Class

Touch Of Class
Hiya, have a wonderful look to show you, something to wear to those pre-holiday parties. 🙂

Classic Tailored Look

Have to admit to being a huge fan of classic-style clothing. The plus in classic style clothing is it doesn’t go “out of style”.  Lucky for us classic fans Hilly Haalan‘s currant group gift is a stunning example of this look. The free Hilly Haalan Debbie Dress GG is a one-piece dress that looks like a skirt and blouse, and a basic black handbag is included. The well-crafted pinstripe top with 3/4 length sleeves and the sleek black slightly ruffled skirt definitely will make a fashion statement. This outfit will make a great addition to your SL wardrobe. The Hilly Haalan group is free to join, in addition to this gift, there is a building brimming with more gifts to pick up.

How to do Boo

How to do Boo

I may be a bit old for Trick or Treating, but I have always lived by the sage words of a 7 year old I once knew.  When I told her that I couldn’t go Trick or Treating anymore, she just said “you can do anything you want to do, don’t let anyone stop you”.  I liked her stance on life, so here I am, at the very least pretending to trick or treat, or perhaps just looking pretty cute in a new spooky and completely free outfit.

Shop it and Hop it

There are so many great free finds at Shop & Hop, I always enjoy showing off some of my fave ones.  This outfit seems like something you could wear in all sorts of situations, but with a bit of a whimsical punch to it.   I love whimsy!   Here are the bits I have on today:

  • FREE Sweater and shirt by ViSion sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya Petite & Maitreya
  • FREE Shoes by Michan sized for Belleza, eBody, Erika, Kupra, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE Bag by Lagom in both pink and orange versions

Shop and Hop is on until November 1st, and all the gifts are free for everyone, no need to join a group.  And if you need it, HERE’s the list and slurls of all the participants.

Just keep those weird Halloween-themed molasses caramels away from me!
