Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Oh Paris- the City of Love!

Parisian Look

Happy day-before-Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!

Today, my post is inspired by the one place on earth where it is the season of love and romance all year- Paris! I put together this Parisian look by combining some of the free gifts I collected at the Valentine’s Shop and Hop! You can go there, collect the goodies and walk out looking like you stepped out of France! I may look like a Parisian now, but the only French thing about me is my love of baguette and brie cheese. Aside from that, however, these items are super cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The Free Hair and Beret

Perhaps what tops off this outfit is the Beret Accessory included in this free hair which you can get at Vanity Hair’s booth at the Shop & Hop. The hair is called “Winter is Coming” and it includes a colour change HUD and a tinting HUD which allows you to change the hair and the hat to any colour. You can find the Vanity Hair booth in the Tinseled sim.

A Cute Set from Pixicat

The top and shorts I am wearing is the lovely gift from Pixicat- called “soft set” in red stripes. It’s sort of artsy and I feel like it matches the hair super well! Get the free gift from Pixicat at the Aurelian sim of the Shop and Hop.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass & Physique

A Pearl and Heart Crystal Necklace

What says love and romance more than pearls and crystal hearts? This gift from Supernatural, the “Kyary Necklace” will be the best gift to yourself for this Valentine’s! The necklace can be found in the Tinseled sim of the Shop and Hop.

Have a fun Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!
xx

Hopeful Romantic

Hopeful Romantic

I often hear the phrase “Hopeless Romantic” and this time of year, when we are nearing Valentine’s Day I would rather think of myself and others as “Hopeful Romantics.” The world needs romance. The latest group gift at Dead Dollz is this romantic little dress, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day. These letters, books, and flowers adding to the romantic setting is a free Lucky Letter Board prize décor set at Tentacio. Keep reading for details about each of these finds, and get all the credits at the end.

Dead Dollz

I love it when Dead Dollz has a new group gift. The gifts are always beautiful, and this dress is definitely that. It includes a color change hud that lets you pick the color for the dress and the belt. There are seven colors to choose from ranging from white to red, with several pink choices in-between. The dress comes fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden.

Tenatcio

Not too long ago I had fun with one of the free Lucky Letter Board prizes at Tentacio for my “Healthy Life” post. This time I am happy to share with you another free Lucky Board prize from Tentacio. This prize is the “Flower Memories” décor set, and it includes the envelope with flowers, the scattered letters and book, and the open book with flowers and scattered petals. Each of these lovely décor items is copy and can be resized. There’s no group required to participate in the Lucky Boards at Tentacio, so this set is completely free you just have to wait for your letter to come up.

Summoned

Summoned

I’ve been summoned! Now I’ll tell you everything you need to know about even more fabulous freebies at Kustom 9. Don’t forget, to get each of these and many more free gifts at Kustom 9, you’ll need to join the Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag. The group is free to join. For this post I picked out the free gifts by Evie, Spoiled, Marti, Mudskin, and Varonis to share with you. Keep reading for details about each one, or scoll down for full credits.

Evie

The dainty glowing horns are the free Kustom 9 gift by Evie. They come in a non-glowy version as well. Included with this gift is a color change hud with quite a few sold color options for these cute little horns.

Spoiled

The wine bottle with skeleton hand accents by Spoiled is probably my favorite of the many free Kustom 9 gifts. It is actually a complete pose set with tons of options. There is an animated/held version of the wine bottle, 6 full body static poses with mirrored version, and 3 non-animated hold poses (also with mirrored versions). Also, there is a color change hud for the wine bottle that lets you pick from 20 colors for the glass, and 20 colors for the skeleton hands.

Marti

This short little dress with the side split by Marti is also free at Kustom 9. It comes in the single peachy color shown, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only.

Mudskin

My spooky eyes are the free Kustom 9 gift by Mudskin. They come in 2 variations, each with appliers and a set of mesh eyes.
Appliers Included: Lelutka, Catwa, Omega, Genus

Varonis

Finally, I love this free backdrop gift from Varonis at Kustom 9. I showed a glimpse of it in my previous post as well. It’s actually a long detailed hallway with the ever so slightly opened door at the back. The candles are also part of the scene.

Over It


Over It

Finally the weather outside made me want to put on a jacket rather than lift my hair off the back of my neck. It has been an unusually cool day, even for September. Love and Aline may be clinging to summer, but I don’t mind telling you I’m over it. Give me crisp cool air, fall leaves, bonfires, and all the deliciousness that summer is just too hot for. I also love a good fall wardrobe which wouldn’t be complete without a good jacket. The jacket I’m wearing is part of a group gift newly available at Star Sugar. While picking up my new favorite jacket, I also found a handful of free gifts at Star Sugar, one of which was this cute start studded bag. Needless to say I couldn’t resist. For more about each of these fantastic finds, keep reading, or you can scroll to the credits.

Star Sugar

First, the initial thing that drew me to this jacket by Star Sugar were the little bats. I love them! That said, the jacket is a group gift at Star Sugar, along with a matching skirt which I did not wear. The Jacket comes in several pastel colors, all with black trim and little black bats around the bottom. The skirt and jacket are fit for Maitreya Lara only. The Star Sugar group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available including this one recently blogged by Juli. Below is a copy of the vendor photo so you can see the cute buttoned skirt and the sweet pastel colors the jacket comes in.

Babe Fit

As I mentioned, there are several free gifts that do not require a group tag at Star Sugar. The gift that caught my eye the most was this cool little star studded bag. This freebie has a hold pose that actually worked with my mixed priority AO. Additionally the free bag comes in the black version shown, as well as yellow, blue, green, pink, and white. Definitely pick this one up!

Here is What I am Wearing:

Let’s Get Mystical


Bewitching

“Let’s get mystical, mystical, I wanna get mystical. Let’s get into mystical… “

Okay that’s not really how the song goes but it was kinda fun to sing it that way! Why am I changing the lyrics to an Olivia Newton John song? The Mystical Market of course! Don’t try to understand my pretzel logic, it’ll only confuse you more. The point of all this silliness is there happens to be a 5 linden hunt happening at Mystical Market. There are little black cauldrons full of witchy prizes scattered around the area. For this post I picked up 2 of the many 5-linden hunt prizes, the prize from WitchCraft and the prize from LOVE. Let’s get mystical.

WitchCraft

The black lace-trimmed dress I’m wearing is the 5 linden hunt prize by WitchCraft at Mystical Market. The dress comes in a several sizes and has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices.

Sizes Include: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

LOVE

The pretty floral wall is part of the 5 linden hunt prize by LOVE at Mystical Market. This gift includes a pack of pretty floral walls that remind me of climbing flowering vines. They come in several colors with 3 versions each, and have little twinkle lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

There aren’t really any hints for these hunt prizes, however I can tell you that the cauldrons you’ll be looking for aren’t often hidden as much as they are settled in and around the landscape. Some are even hiding right in plain sight!

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Summer Hairplay – Chinook – Ombre
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Dress – [WitchCraft] Willow dress – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market
Manicure – {WitchCraft} Midnight Nails + Polish – Currently @Mystial Market
Cat – –Pixicat– Bastet.Sphynx RARE
