No Bad Apples Here

No Bad Apples Here

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The air was crisp and clean and I decided to pay a visit to an orchard this afternoon.  Since it was a bit on the chilly side, I’m glad I had a new jeans jacket and sweater to keep me warm! I picked them up for just one Linden dollar as a hunt prize.  Later, I’m going to bake a homemade apple pie.  The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream to put on top.  Maybe you have some?  I’ll gladly share the pie. 🙂

When in Doubt, Wear Denim

In my last post, I talked about the Hunt on Haunted Hill, and I have another budget-friendly item from the event to show you today.  Over at The Sissy Bar, if you locate the small ghost lurking around the sim, you can add this casual combo to your SL wardrobe.  In a soft, washed denim hue, the jacket features three-quarter-length sleeves, a cropped fit, and a mischievous critter patch on each shoulder.  The black sweater, with a ribbed collar and sleeves, is built-in so you don’t have to worry about your top poking through the jacket.  Isn’t it annoying when that happens in world?  Versions for classic avatars as well as common mesh body styles are included in the folder.  The hunt runs through October 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I’ll have the pie ready by about 6 pm SLT…

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy haunting hunting!

Meet Me at Dusk

Enjoy Every Purple Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist the color purple.  Today’s post features a gorgeous formal gown that I picked up for free as a hunt prize in the Twisted Hunt Fall 2021 (Beyond the Veil).  This is a time-sensitive post because the event draws to a close on September 30th, but this beauty is well worth a journey down the hunt trail.

Fit for a Royal

With its slightly puffed upper sleeves, intricate print on the bodice, and “v” shaped waistline, the free Clyra gown flatters your curves.  I love how the full-length skirt drapes gracefully to the ground and is loose enough to make it easy to move without being cumbersome.  I felt so elegant as I wore it, and found myself searching for a castle to visit.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh avatar, I was able to get the perfect fit by adjusting the alpha of my Maitryea mesh body.  If you are still rocking a classic avatar, the included alpha layers will allow you to opt for wearing the dress with and without your feet showing.  As I stated earlier, the hunt runs only until the end of September, so if you like this frock as much as I do, head on over soon to *DSO* (Designs by Starla) to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be searching for a small dusk-colored cube.

Sizes:

  • Alpha layers with and without feet
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L

Until my next post, happy hunting!

All twisted up

All twisted up

Good afternoon my FabFree Crew! Happy weekend to us all. Now that I have some free time on the Grid it’s time to dive into my favorite Hunt off the year: The Twisted Hunt! Yes, it’s stupid hard… and stupid frustrating and yes, I pull my hair out every year… I do love it. It’s such a challenge and finding that right cube is a real thrill. Plus, I think the designers really pull out all the stops for this hunt and we get some awesome gifts.

Like this sweet little harness and mini from Ari-Pari. The dress comes with a HUD for choices of color and three colors for the harness. Plus a switch to turn the harness on and off. Makes for a nicely versatile addition to your closet.

Just be warned. There are no clues and tons of decoys at most of the designers in this Hunt. But you can join the Twisted Hunt group for fun chat and a little help along the way. The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so get in there and get twisted!

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Find Your Wings

Don't Walk, Fly

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  I’m back to share one final prize that I discovered while participating in the Free Dove August Hunt.  The event ends soon, so if you like this shimmery outfit as much as I do, don’t walk, fly to the hunt trail.

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

I love dressing up as much as the next girl, but some days, I just want to wear pants.  What I love about this free outfit is I don’t have to give up any of my shine with its eye-catching texture and curve-hugging fit.  This sexy number features a gold corset, sleek leggings, and coordinating shoes.  Packed with details such as glittering sequins, a laced back, decorative seam work on the pants and golden chains on the heels, the Dancin’ Doll outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  As I stated in my post here, each of the hunt sponsors has 5 gifts on the Free Dove sim, and 5 hidden at their main location.   To add EC’s tenth hunt prize to your collection, you will have to journey to the Emerald Couture main sim, activate your Free Dove group tag, and locate the hunt object, which is a tiny green emerald.   Since both the hunt items and the group are free, you can add this entire ensemble to your inventory at no cost to you.  The hunt runs through August 31st, so don’t delay if you’d like a copy of this hunt gift for your very own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Heyya FabFree! I’m back to being my own sweet self after my trip to the dark side. Certainly, putting on todays outfit helped change my mind back to being a creature of light and happiness. 😉

This is the “Enchanted Rose Set” from Melt and it’s allllll free for the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. Can you tell yet that I am enjoying the heck out of this Hunt? I loved hunting in the green space of Melt’s SIM along an enchanting path with bunnies and deer and unicorns and so, many. flowers! It’s gorgeously done and a pleasure to walk through.

There are five pieces to find to complete the set and I am very impressed with the design and quality. I plan to tuck this beauty into my closet for my RP times.

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22!

Hey There FabFree! Welcome to another week of freebies and Hunts and us girls ( And Gabe! 😉 workin’ hard to get you the awesome-ness on the cheap! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and y’all are enjoying the chocolate being on sale. I, personally, am enjoying all these great new Hunts taking off all over the Grid. 

I am hunting a new hunt for me this Monday: The Cheeky Monkey Hunt.  I had a chuckle over the name then saw allllll the great prizes and grabbed my hunting shoes and took off.  My favorite has to be this gorgeous corset plus skirt from Blonde Queen.

This is the “Spring Roses Corset” and you can have it for just a little hunting and one little Linden. Now this might look like a very short dress… but that’s only from the front. It puts the cheeky in the Cheeky Monkey Hunt, if ya know what I mean.  Still, it such a lovely piece I’m saving it for those times with my special someone.

Back to life

Back to Life

Hey, Fab Readers! I’m back after a long and very difficult week in the real world. And, honestly, there is nothing I’d rather do than lose myself in the Grid and not think about anything other than fun Hunts and great sales and reconnecting with friends. Get back to my “nature” , as it were. So let’s not delay.

I was tickled to see all the great Irish – y hunts going on with St. Pats coming up so quickly. (Not to mention our OWN hunt… ) So I though I’d warm up with one of my favorite designers, Ari-Pari on the Lucky Tonight Hunt. 

This is the Eireann Dress and you can pick it up for just 1 little linden and a little hunting around.  I loved the white version as it’s so delicate and girly. But Eireann comes with a HUD for eight colors of dress and belt. From a vibrant red to this soft white. And, as with everything from Ari-Pari, the details and build are just perfect.  The Hunt runs until the end of the month so you have some time to go and hunt it down.

Sizes Included

Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

SLink – Hourglass, Physique
