The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

She’s Gone Wayward

Wayward Hunt

Hi Fab Free! As you can see we are having a great time with the recently started Wayward Hunt! Not only is this hunt FREE but there are tons of amazing designers participating. Thus far I’ve been very impressed with the hunt items, so of course I had to get in on the fun of showing them off!

I love this hairstyle with the fun rainbow ends and cute top bun is the FREE Wayward Hunt prize from Blues. The hairstyle is named Beau and comes in a blond version and the brunette version shown. The rainbow colored ends are beautifully done, and they give this pretty, casual style an edgy playfulness.

This pale freckled skin with red eye-makeup and red lips is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from The Skinnery. This gift includes the skin in a dark brows option (shown) and a no brows option. Also included with this gift are appliers for the TMP body. (I used the Maitreya HUD to manually adjust my skin-tone to match the Skinnery tone)

The moment I saw this skirt on Flickr, I knew I had to have it! The skirt is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from Yumyums. It’s a fully mesh skirt and was intended to be worn with the Maitreya body. I think this vibrant floral print is perfect for the season, and the pleats are super cute.

Next, the shoes! I am a sucker for a cute pair of wedge heels. These open-toe wedges are the FREE Wayward hunt prize at Livalle (formerly L. Warwick). The shoes include version to fit Slink High, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Finally, the hanging rug with the string of lights in the background is the FREE hunt prize from Toro. The textures area really beautiful, I love the bohemian element to the style. Also, the lights can be turned off and on with just a click. I think this pretty piece would look great indoors or on a covered patio, and it’s great for photos!

A Slice of Cherry Cake

Cherry Cake Hunt 1

Hi again Fab Free’rs! It’s been a while since I’ve participated in a big hunt, and something about the Cherry Cake Hunt was irresistible. Maybe it was the idea of cherries or cake… probably the cake! 😛 As you might imagine the hunt is full of cute cherry and cupcake themed goodies. The Cherry Cake Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each hunt prize is just 1 linden.

I picked out a handful of my favorites from the hunt, starting with this fringed cropped tank top from Emporium. The top is full mesh and comes in standard sizes with a matching alpha. Next, I just can not get enough of these glasses from Tabou Irresistible. The glasses come in two versions, one with the cupcake graphic shown, and the other pair has a sexy lips graphic. I thought these “Lennon” style glasses were perfect with the fringed top! Continuing with the cute cupcakes, Le Forme‘s CCH prize is this evil cute cupcake collar. Like the glasses, this prize also has a second version. The other collar has a charm that says “Basic  Bitch” instead of this creepy kawaii cupcake.

As I mentioned before, each of these CCH prizes are just 1 linden. At such a great price, there were many great gifts on this hunt. I put together one more quick look to show you using just two of the CCH prizes.

Cherry Cake Hunt 2

So this pajama set with the teal top and matching cupcake print boy-shorts from Aphrodisiac were just too cute to pass up. The set includes regular system layers, as well as Omega and Slink Physique appliers. Finally, this hairstyle from Ayashi is super cute. There is something about pigtails that makes them perfect with pajamas. The cherries at the base of each pigtail add to the cuteness of this style. The hair comes in just the color shown, and includes a matching alpha.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

ChiChickie floats away in Azul and :SMC:!

Greetings!

I have so many cute and fabulous things to show you today!  First, there is this amazing FREE April group gift dress from Azul (FREE to join).  I LOVE all the colors in it…so vibrant and fun! Azul has been around a very long time and always makes such beautiful gowns, for top models and MVW contestants, so I was pleasantly surprised to see an every day dress put out as the latest group gift.  It just begs for Spring and enjoying all those outdoor activities!  Speaking of which, I scored these fabulous balloons at the Monochromatic Fair, from Dyer Maker…the are totally FREE and when you click on them, they play a flying animation (shown in the photo) and cute little butterflies animate around you!  The SLURL to  Monochromatic Fair is a forced landing, so you will need to search for Dyer Maker, but it is well worth it for such a cute FREE gift!

The first item I want to show you is the fabulous little black dress …simply called Overhigh Gift – 001.  This adorable dress is perfect as is or it can serve as a base piece to add your own creative touch to it with belts, boot, tights, or these amazing legwarmers; previously featured by Pru HERE.  The legwarmers are a recent release, from Maitreya, as a FREE group gift (FREE to join).  These legwarmers come with a HUD where you can choose things like leather or suede and a ton of color options!

My Verania necklace is also a FREE group gift (FREE to join) from Pure Poison and previously shown by Love HERE.  My Maria hair was shown previously by Tiana HERE and is  from Tukinowaguma.   Maria is a FREE group gift (FREE to join)…as a group member of Tukinowaguma you will also find a wall full of shoes and hair FREE!

No group join required for the sale price.

The lace top, labeled #04 in the collection, is mesh and does not require an alpha to wear, the sweet cuffed shorts are labeled #03 in the collection and the fabulously cool fuzzy jacket is labeled #07 in the collection.  Each piece is sold separately for 50L and can be located on the Overhigh Black Collection rack; located to your left as you enter the store.

Next in the Overhigh collection is a gorgeous gown, labeled #02, with a one shoulder asymmetric cut across the bodice and a scandalous side slit that goes on forever!  I absolutely love how simple, elegant and sexy this dress is…full of taste and sophistication…and ONLY 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

The final piece, in the Overhigh Black Collection, is a stunning ballgown with a modern edge.  This gown, labeled #01, has a sleek feel with the horizontal stripes that alternate opaque and sheer panels…and the full flourish of the ballroom skirt.  This gown is an understated knockout…sure to turn heads when you enter the room…and an absolute steal at only 50L!

Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and PINKY*GALS Gift!

Hi all!

Today I have items from three stores that are participating in the Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and one super cute FREE dress from PINKY*GALS!

First a little info on how the Hunt works.  It is a bit different from your regular hunt…in the Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt you go to the link I provided and you will find instructions, photos of all the items in the hunt and HINTS on where to look for the eggs.  There are several eggs in each store, containing one item, and the trick is finding the spot, via the hint given, where you might see the egg…BUT you will need to keep a keen eye on that spot because the eggs randomly appear and disappear!  So you may see it one moment and then the next moment it is gone!  It is a great hunt and loads of fun..with fantastic prizes to be found!  Let’s get hunting!

My first outfit is from Sky, it is this adorable pink top, shorts, handbag, bunny headband and flower ring! Such a cute outfit and yours FREE if you find all five eggs before they disappear!  Remember to use the HINTS…they really do help.  The hair is Tomorrow from MAGIKA (not free), the shoes are Plumeria Sandals Rare (gacha item from previous Arcade) from Pure Poison,  and the pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

Next we have an oh-so-cute Kawaii inspired outfit from Hapi Rabi!  This outfit comes with the bunny bag, bunny ears, dress, knee socks and prim nails (not worn) and is FREE…all you need to do is spot those eggs!  The hair is Tomoko2 (Ruby, limited color) a previous lucky board prize from “”D!va”” Hair.  The Ribbon Cupcake Mouthie is 25L for a transferable fat pack of 8 colors…available at [:Kawaii Couture:] and the shoes are part of an outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie, 25L, also available at [:Kawaii Couture:]!   My pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

My final outfit shows only a few of the items available from Perch.  Follow the hints, find the eggs and you will be given this cute birdie bag, lunch box and sneakers (there are also a non mesh top and shorts not shown) absolutely FREE!!  Catch those disappearing eggs!  The mesh dress is a FREE gift (no group join required) from PINKY*GALS.  *Note…the SLURL link for PINKY*GALS takes you to the Love Soul shopping mall…walk out of the mall and the shop will be in the first building to your left. My soda is Dollypop from [:Kawaii Couture:] and my pose is a previous subscriber gift from Diesel Works.  The hair bow is Kyary PonPon Alice Bow – Creamy Yellow…available for FREE from .:Midi:Nette:. on the MarketPlace and my hair is Norma (Ruby limited color) a previous COLLABOR88 item from “”D!va”” Hair.
