Laundry Day

 

Laundry Day
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I call this look “when it’s laundry day but you still wanna look cute for Easter.” hahaha Really, I had a lot of fun with a few more finds from The Rotten Egg Hunt, and this fun “Need Laundry” pose by DANU. I picked up this cute top at The Rotten Egg Hunt, it’s by Secret Oktober. Also while at The Rotten Egg Hunt I picked up a really pretty crescent shaped bindi by Valika Rituals. Keep reading for all the details about these fabulous finds. Also, Aline’s sweet sleepy self has been doing some Rotten Egg Hunting, to see what she found check out her post “Sleepy Times.”

The Pose – This fun laundry pose is a Marketplace find by DANU. It’s just 37 linden and it includes a pose-ball pose, and the laundry basket prop. The basket comes white, but I tinted it darker. I also needed to shrink it down to fit between Pru’s hand and hip, which was easy to in edit mode since the basket does not have any scripts. Have fun, and do your laundry!

The Top – Secret Oktober has 5 versions of this cropped bunny sweater at The Rotten Egg Hunt. I was excited to find the number 5 egg and get the bunny with the spider. It felt a little bit like Easter and a little bit like Halloween, which suits my exceedingly eclectic tastes. lol These tops are just 10 linden each, and come in a Maitreya fit only.

The Bindi – This pretty little bindi by Velika Rituals is one of the dollarbie Rotten Egg Hunt prizes. At just 1 linden, it is way too nice to pass up. I’m loving accessories that are free of scripts like this one, sometimes simple really is best. You can resize, and even change the color of this bindi by using the edit menu. Just don’t forget to make a copy first!

Rainbow Goth

Fantasy Goth
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been one of those days IRL and I’m thankful that I have my SL to escape to! I’m also super glad you’re here and I get to share some cool Goth Garage Sale Hunt finds with you. This hunt definitely caters to the gothic, wicked, and witchy among us (as the name would suggest). Pru is living out one of my goth/rockabilly fashion fantasies with this look. The GGS Hunt is a 5 linden hunt, meaning each prize is 5 linden. This hunt is taking place at the Goth Garage Sale event. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little black kitty with glowing yellow eyes. Some of the participating vendors have hidden their hunt item within their store booth. Some vendors also have their hunt item hidden on the even grounds near their booth. It was my experience that most items were “hidden in plain sight.” So keep an eye out for those glowing yellow eyes!

The Hair – I think this hairstyle from EscalateD is so fun. It’s a little bit pin-up, a little bit punk-rock, and a whole lot of fun! It is EscalateD’s 5 linden Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. The style comes with a cool dip dye hud with dark hair that has several brightly colored “dips.” There is also a color change hud for the hair bow.

The Necklace – The Little Bat has this beautiful necklace for their Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Purchase their hunt prize and you will receive the neck;ace and a texture/color change hud. The hud has 14 gemstone colors to choose from. The necklace also has resize scripts.

The Septum Piercing – This simple captive bead nose ring is one of two Goth Garage Sale Hunt prizes from Astara. This silver version is just 5 linden and it includes a color change hud for the captive bead. The other Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize from Astara is the same piercing in gold.

The Pillows – These cute pillows are the OOPS Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. For just 5 linden you get a set of unscripted decorative pillows, and a hold-able version. The hold-able version has a texture change hud so you can choose which version of the pillow you want. The decorative pillows can be manually sized.

The Dress – The mid-thigh length dress Pru is wearing is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by WitchCraft. The dress includes a color/texture change hud with 3 different variations of this geometric galaxy print. This 5L prize comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and eBody.

The Nails – The intentionally chippy manicure Pru has is from the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Dark Passions. This “Koffin” nails hud gives you 6 vampy pastel polish shades in a chipped or solid option. The appliers will work for fingernails as well as toenails. There is a Slink applier, a Maitreya applier, and an Omega applier included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Who Run The World?

Who Run The World?

On days when one must rule the world, one must have the best outfit possible.  One must find it within oneself to crush all obstacles under one’s well-heeled feet.  My friends, I have found just such an outfit – and I have found it for free.  Rejoice!

Stomp On It

The Summer Loving hunt is well underway, and I found this amazing offering from Vanilla Bae!  When I wore it out I felt as though I could take on the entire world.  Plus the little grommet openings allowed for plenty of air ventilation!  (BAHAHA, couldn’t help myself) But seriously folks, it’s really eye-catching isn’t it?  This free hunt prize comes in 3 different colours (Rose, Cream and the Smoky colour I’ve got on).  You can grab your own by hunting for the little beach ball in the main store and voilà:  The world is your oyster!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

To all my peeps who stomp through life – I salute you!

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend.  Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.  Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine, strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans.  The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline.  Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning.  Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground.  The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose.  Poor Ripley!  So much for trying to be helpful!  As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign.  “It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick.  He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
