Hanging With the Wild Things

Oubliette, Dark Salvation, A&A

Squee! I have a few more fun hunt items to show you today. I was excited to find a couple of hunts I hadn’t done yet. And they both continue until mid-August! I was feeling a bit goofy so I decided to hang with some of my wild friends.

Starting at the top – From The 60s Event, A&A’s Carlotta hair is one of many free gifts from the store. I love the Summer Colors hud. So many colors to choose from!

My top makes a statement that fits me so well. Oubliette’s free gift for the Summer Nights Hunt is a cropped tee with the wording, “I, myself am strange & unusual”. So me, lol.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Freya

Last, my playful shorts are from Dark Salvation. Named the Daeshona Fight Shorts, these are a free gift for the free Fitmesh Fanatics group.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique
  • Legacy
  • Belleza Freya, Venus, & Isis

So a bop & a hop here and you can find a number of cute things.

XOXO,

Cre

Hit the Road

Hit the Road

I jumped into my car and headed for the coast this morning.  A random road trip sometimes does a body good when the walls seem to be a bit closer together than they used to be.  I was supposed to be scrubbing some tiles, but instead the magic of the open road called, so off to the beach I went.  As per usual, who am I to deny the pleading of an inanimate object?

Road Trip!

There’s a new hunt going on at Petite Mort & Oubliette.  The Witchwood sim is always fun to explore, but even more so when you’ve got something to look for.  If you peek through the woods, you’ll find some “Route 66” signs kind of all over the place (even inside the stores) and inside there are all sorts of summery looks that are perfect for hitting the road.  I’m wearing the medium wash jeans that cost just 20L, as well as the feel the freedom tee which is another 20L as well.  I couldn’t help but take a shot (below) of the extremely pretty peach dress too, but can you blame me?  The Road Trip Hunt at Witchwood is running until July 4th, so grab those gifts before they’re gone! (And why not check out the 50% off sale while you’re there!?).

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

More Free Hair!

While I was at the Hair Fair the other day, I also came upon this free hairstyle from Ade.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s just a perfect easy breezy style for summer vacation goodness.  Just pay 0L, no need to join a group!  The Hair Fair is running until July 4th as well.

Ahh, freedom!

Heart Songs

Heart Songs

Hey FabFree! I’m feeling very mellow today, very much a wander in the meadows following the butterflies sort of feeling. Maybe it’s the beautiful SIM. Maybe it’s time of year. It could be the beautiful BoHo blouse and skirt I found over at the Witchwood Petite Mort Spring BoHo Hunt!

I do love it when two of my favorite designers team up for one of their awesome Hunts and sales! The Spring Hunt is accompanied this year by a huge sale in both stores. You can get 50% off the entire store until May 7! This does exclude Gachas and New items but it still leaves a ton of great bargains! 

The Hunt is happening between the stores and you can pick up a notecard at the landing point with clues and info and a cute little rose basket for free. Each item on the hunt is priced between 10L to 20L. I have never been disappointed with anything I ever got from Oubliette or Petite Mort and these Hunt items are no different. The details, textures and build are all perfect!  So don’t let anything stop you from loading up on these gorgeous spring clothes!  The Hunt and sale run until May 2 so don’t delay.

Wandering

Wandering

Hey FabFree! If you haven’t heard of “Wanderlust Weekend”, I am here to give you the big scoop. Wanderlust features really high quality shops and designers offering some of their absolute best items for just 50L. That’s less than most Gacha pulls and there’s no element of chance here. You can easily find items that would normally cost hundreds of Lindens on sale for 50L. I once picked up a piece of landscaping décor and saw it Monday back at it’s regular price of 550L! So you should really check this out!  Here on their website you can see the pictures of the items being offered and get the LMs or use the HUD that updates each Wanderlust weekend.

I had to go grab this gorgeous new hair, Molly, from Mina first thing. I love the cascade and the hint of movement in it. Mina always has such good hair! You can get Blondes, Browns, Reds, Grays and Pastels color packs, each for the special 50L price.

Next on my ‘wandering’ was one of my favorite designers: Oubliette! So of course I had to go there too. I just love this dress! This is ‘Aurora’ and you can pick from three colors, the Lavender Galaxy I’m wearing, Frost and Midnight. Each for the special price. Heck, you can buy all three colors for less than most dresses!

Sizes Included

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

So grab your HUD and get to wandering! The Wanderlust Weekend only lasts until Sunday midnight then poof, it’ll fade away.

Way Up There

Way Up There
Yaaaaaay Happy Friday, FabFree!  I don’t know about you, but I am suuuuper ready for a bit of R&R.  I put on my pyjamas, grabbed a cup of hot chocolate and nestled myself into the couch, when all of a sudden I heard some tinkling bells coming from the outside world…. I headed out into the snow, and what to my wondering eyes should appear?  You guessed it – it was Jolly old St. Nick himself up in the clouds, waving and ho-ho-ho-ing.  I’m 96% sure that I wasn’t hallucinating…hmm…

Yay, Advent!

I do love me some Advent.  There are so many awesome gifts to pick up inworld that it is hard to keep up!  Are you one of those people who manages to do it every day?  I’ve heard of some intrepid souls who do the WHOLE FabFree list every day, and my hat is off to you!  I needed to lie in a dark room after just writing the list!  Anyway, one of the Advent calendars that has recently appeared is the two at Petite Mort and Oubliette!  A new gift appears every day.  They’re free, no group join required, AND they don’t disappear after the day, so if you miss one you can head back and grab.  But don’t wait… they’ll all disappear on the 25th!  I grabbed the gifts from Days 1 & 4 from Oubliette to make my little comfy (and a bit witchy) outfit.  So cute, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

 

There are also some great deals in the store while you’re at it – like 75L super adorable PJ pants!

Eye on the Prize

Another free gift I picked up today is this sparkly and intense eye shadow applier from La Malvada Mujer.  I joined their free group to pick up this striking makeup.  There’s also matching lipstick if you fancy it!  The Mosquito eyeshadow comes with an Appliers for Lelutka Evo, Genus, Omega and BOM layers and comes in a whole host of pretty, sparkly hues.  Woot!

Ok, I’m starting to get cold out here!

Hello again Fab Free! Thank you for being here. So recently a friend of mine told me about an almost too good to be true sounding store credit gift at Moss&Mink. Needless to say, I had to check it out for myself. She was right, Moss&Mink has a 500 linden store credit offer out that is free for everyone. There’s no need to join a group for this awesome gift, however if you’re so inclined you can join the Moss&Mink group and get a second 500L store credit for a total of 1000 linden in store credit at Moss&Mink.

That said, I opted to forgo the additional 500 linden for Moss&Mink group members and just take advantage of the no-group-needed store credit offer. All you have to do to get yours is head over to Moss&Mink and click the gift credit vendor.  If you’re not familiar with Moss&Mink, they are a furniture and décor shop with lots of detailed items for just about every room in the house, and outdoor items too. The style is modern with some bohemian flair and a touch of kawaii. After wandering through the landscaped outdoor shop, I settled on a classic desk and bookshelf set and a matching desk accessories. I was able to get both the furniture and the desk décor for less than my 500 linden in store credit, making my purchases completely free.

***To use the store credit you must click the vendor and use the pie menu to bring up the “Menu” and choose “Buy” then choose the “Store Credit” option.***

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

In My House

In My Home

Hey Fab Free! I have a few really cool freebies to show you, which is almost everything in this photo except for my hair. Let’s start with the decor, and then move on to my outfit after.

Hip Decor

This great wall tapestry is amazing, and a free gift at Petite Mort. It’s called the “Compassion tapestry” and it’s branded with a number of slogans about human rights and social issues. It works perfect in my living room, so I was quite pleased with this gift! No group is needed for this gift, just buy it for 0L on the gift shelf at Petite Mort.

I am also showing a couple of free stay at home club gifts by Rune Creation, including this funky chair and the camo rug. There are a whole wall of free stay at home gifts, so collect them up while you still can.

The Outfit

The top I have on is another free gift at Petite Mort, which you can also get for 0 Linden.  You can’t see it very clearly in my photo, but it says “Black Lives Matter” on it and it fits perfect. I love it, plus is goes with my new banner perfectly. The skirt, which I simply adore, is currently a free lucky letter prize at Oubliette, the partner store of Petite Mort, which needs the free group to win.

Sizes included (Top & Skirt):

    • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)

Back to Your Roots

Back to Your Roots

Back before I blogged for Fab Free, I was sure I had a very distinct and settled style.  I loved dark, gothy things and I had a special place in my heart for pastel goth.  I mean, I still do!  But when you become a blogger, you have a tendency to forget your personal style for the greater good and in order to “sell the garment, sweetie!”.  But now and then I come across a cute item to blog that brings me back to my fashion roots faster than you can say “dark and brooding”!

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette!  There are four different items up on the boards right now, and right now I’m showing off two.  The peekaboo (very peekaboo…) lace skull dress is so appealing that I knew I had to wear it.  Of course, I added some pasties for modesty – but it is quiiiite see-through.  I also grabbed the underwear there too, which feature a very nice touch of lacing up the sides.  The two items go very nicely together, I think, but they can also be worn separately.  To gain access to these cute and creepy items, just join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!  While you’re at it, you could check the lucky boards across the sim at Petite Mort which are new too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (panties only)
  • XXS – L with an alpha layer (panties only)

Happy Haunting!
