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!

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

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!

Bittersweet

Bittersweet farewell

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  After some retail therapy, I spent the afternoon at the beach today, enjoying the last burst of summer.  The beginning of September is always bittersweet to me.  I look forward to the crisp days of fall, but I’m never really ready for the change of seasons.  Pretty soon, it will be time to pack crop tops and shorts away and pull out cozy sweaters and long pants.  For today though, I am rocking my latest hunt find and a cute pair of shorts.

Loving that Dragon!

This adorable crop top from Grumble features bright pops of color splashed over a black background and slender shoulder straps that allow my skin to soak up the sun.  I really love the jewel tones in the pattern, which draws inspiration from the theme of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Both Jacx and I have already shared hunt items here and here, but with 42 stops along the way, there are plenty of other budget-friendly goodies hidden on the trail.  Each hunt prize has a 3L price tag, but the sponsor fees are for the IKSDP Harambee project Gwassi Kenya schools.  It feels good to scoop up some new items for my wardrobe and support a worthy cause at the same time.  The event runs through September 30th.

Dreamy Damsel

Dreamy Damsel

Happy Weekend, Fabulous Readers!  In my part of the world in RL, this is a three-day weekend, and boy, did I need an extra day off.  Of course, I had to spend part of the holiday weekend hunting for SL bargains. Inspired by Jacx’s post here, I decided to set off down the trail of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Now, this is not a free hunt, but the dress I came away with was well worth the tiny asking price.

Fit for a Fairytale

It took me a while, but after I finally discovered the hunt object at Telsiope’s Couture (an adorable dragon plushie), I paid the 3L fee, then eagerly teleported home to pop open the Agatha Dress.  Wow, oh wow, do I love this stunning gown!  The sleeveless frock features a plunging neckline, flowing cape/train, and a full, floor-length skirt.  The designer even included a color change HUD so you can customize your look.  While I opted for an all-white design, you have six hues to choose from and can apply them separately to the cape, top, skirt, and belt to create a variety of combinations.  The only caveat is this dress is made specifically for the Maitreya mesh body.  With a bit of searching time and just a few Linden dollars, you can come away with a lovely outfit perfect for a formal event or heck, even a stroll through nature – this is SL after all. 🙂  The hunt runs through September 30th.

A Vintage Vixen

A Vintage Vixen
Hello Fabulous Readers!  Have you checked out the Fifth Anniversary Celebration for Bundles yet?  This autumn-themed event runs through September 25th and features 31 designers, many of whom are offering gifts along with their displays.  I have to admit, despite my name, I do start longing for the crisp days of autumn as the heat of summer drags on.  What better way to anticipate fall than to wander around a sim drenched in scattered leaves and pick up free goodies along the way?

Simply Chic

One of my favorite of the free items at Bundles is this Lace Dress from Nilsy.  With its pale pink hue, semi-sheer lace, and full skirt, this frock is the picture of classic elegance.  I don’t know, maybe I am a bit of an old soul, but I love vintage style!  With elbow-length sleeves and a high neckline, it will transition beautifully as summer fades away so I will be able to wear it well into fall.  Since this gift is completely free, you can add a new outfit to your collection without making the slightest dent in your budget!

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Mesh Fit in XS, S, M, L, SL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until next time,

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.

Seeking Treasure

-sb Tresure Top 1

Happy wonderful week-end! Yeah! We get to do, what we all do best, shopping the events. Jacx has found a real treasure, at 60L, that won’t break your bank 🙂

Beautiful And Bright

The lovely Siss Boom Treasure Top (Bright) 60L. Event, is truly gorgeous. Simple classic styling. This top gives a bit more than a regular strapless top, with the neck piece. What is stunning about this top, the texture. Lestat Reuven of Siss Boom is known for the textures she uses, and the quality of workmanship. Jacx has been shopping with Lestat since her first store Wonderous Strange. (And no we won’t talk about how long ago that was.) LOL. To get this gem, drop by Siss Boom, you have until Tuesday to collect the top.
