Gardening Gals

It’s officially Summer now, and that means that it’s time to dig in and get some planting done.  Me and Pru and ready for a bit of planting and gossiping, which will clearly be followed by some lemonade on the porch.   We’re getting in touch with nature again!  Hooray for the summertime!

Which Wood?

Witchwood (aka Oubliette and Petite Mort) are back on the hunting circuit with their very own Summer Festival hunt!  It’s filled with lovely summery, slightly boho outfits that will have you feeling like you’re in touch with nature before you know it!  The items are all priced from 10 – 20L and can be mixed and matched very nicely.  You can see which items Pru and I have got on in the credits below, and I’ve added the hunt key so you can see what’s on offer!  The Summer Festival hunt at Witchwood is running until July 5th!

Sizes

  • Hourglass

Home Sweet Home

The lovely house Pru and I are hanging out in front of is the latest Stay at Home Club gift from Trompe L’Oeil!  To get it, just head over to their landing point and pay 0L.  The chairs on the front porch are also available for free there, and they look so inviting that I don’t know how much gardening we two will get done in the end!  As we often say in SL…you can never have too many houses!  And when they’re free…one just can’t resist!

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

Peace and Love

Peace and Love

I love a  good hunt.  I also love a good Boho hunt!  With all this time on our hands, I’m digging right into all the fun that SL has to offer while throwing up peace signs and donning as many flower crowns as I possibly can.  Let’s let the chill boho vibe reign over us as much as possible!

In the Witchwood

Petite Mort & Oubliette are hosting a hunt for Spring over at the Witchwood sim.  So many great items to choose from that I knew I just had to have them all.  Every piece is priced between 10 and 20L so you’ll be able to put together some cute looks without breaking the bank.  The items I’m showing are as follows:

  • 10L Floral Wreath
  • 10L Glasses
  • 10L Shorts sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus
  • 20L Tee sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus

Just search high and low throughout the sim and you’re sure to find those little eggs all over the place!  You’ve got until April 11th!

Enjoy!

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since my last post, 2020 has got me jumping through hoops already. Even so, it’s good to be here. For this post I played the Oubliette gacha machine at Gachaland. It’s just 50 linden per play for this fairy-like goth outfit, and there’s an event exclusive color available. I’ll add a vendor photo below so you can get a look at each of the pieces to the set.

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “I love nutcrackers, reindeer and snowmen.”

A Bit Creepy, A Lot Cute

A Bit Creepy, A Lot Cute

Oh I am so ready for this season of pumpkins and leaves crunching underfoot!  I have come to realise that Fall really is my favourite season.  Summer gets a lot of the hurrah, I find, but Fall is really more wondrous for me.  It could be the colour of the leaves, the wonderful celebrations, or even perhaps that crispness in the air.  I don’t know what it is, but I do love it.

Trick or Treat!

I usually wait a bit longer (do I?) to start posting Halloween gear, but when I nipped over to Trick or Treat Lane I couldn’t help but get excited.  All the creators have put a gift outside their little displays, and they’re all FREE!  No group join required either, just buy the gift for 0L.  Here’s what I’m showing you:

  • FREE Top by Pink Cream Pie sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya
  • FREE Tights by Alaskametro with an Omega Applier
  • FREE Sneakers by Oubliette sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • FREE Hairclips by The Nerdy Birdie, which are editable so you can place them just where you like.

Trick or Treat Lane is open until November 1st so you’ve got plenty of time to pick up your goodies – what else will you find lurking at Trick or Treat Lane?

Did You Hear That?


Did You Hear That

Friday the 13th is the perfect day to go camping, right? Surely nothing sinister would happen… I can just hear the iconic “something bad is about to happen” music starting to play! I love a classic horror flick, so when Blue showed me these Camp Crystal Lake tees by ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) I had to share them with you; today being Friday the 13th is just the icing on the cake.

The matching his and hers shirts are the free Twisted Hunt prize at ZFG. When hunting be wary of the decoy boxes the Twisted Hunt is famous for. The Twisted Hunt runs through the end of the month, so you have some time to get things figured out. There are no hints either, so I can’t help you there. To get yours, you’ll have to head over to ZFG and hunt it down! The male and female version are in the same box.

Men’s Shirt Sizes: Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Slink, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Women’s Shirt Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here’s What Blue Has On:

Hair – Vango – Owen
Head – Akeruka – Clay
Skin – 7Deadly Skins – Earth – Caramel
Shirt – ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) – Camp Crystal Lake – Free Twisted Hunt Prize
Pants – Wilson’s Designs – Jeans – 1L *Part of the For Him Hunt Prize
Shoes – Native Urban – Enhanced Boots – Marketplace
