No Shame In My Game

Snapshot_006It looks like Julianna and I had the same idea – It’s hot… and we should float!  My floatie isn’t quite as cool as hers, but it’s doing the trick😉

I’m floating around trying to beat the heat on the Sea Foam Sim today (thank you to Markum for showing me this sim!), in my new Sumur Dress that I picked up at Shame for the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt.  This dress comes in one size – Maitreya and has a casual lightweight jersey type texture to it that makes me wish I had this breezy cool dress on in real life!

This dress will set you back 25L if you are too lazy to hunt for it – or 1L if you don’t mind having a peek around! The hunt icon you are seeking is a yellow and red hot air balloon.

Your Friday Hunt Report

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?

Have Love, Will Travel

Snapshot_001Hey there Fabulouses! The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt has some really nice prizes.  I stopped in at La Gazza Ladra recently and found that they were participating, so I hunted down the hidden air balloon hunt icon and picked it up for 1L.  You can pick up a hint at the main entrance if you need a little help.  The prize inside was the Scalloped Dress in Red Butterfly as I am wearing today that comes in XXS-L mesh sizes.  If you are not a fan of hunting, but do like this dress – You can pick it up for 25L at the main entrance by the poster.

I also wanted to quickly mention that Magika is having a half off hair sale!!  I usually pick up the new releases as they come out, but I seem to have missed a few because I popped in today and found a few more I didn’t have yet!

Entice at the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Event

Red White Blue

Hello There Fab Free! I have some special items to share with you today, that I’m sincerely excited about. Everyone knows I am a shopaholic, sales, gifts, and awesome deals are always exciting. However, when I can combine my love of bargain shopping with the ability to contribute to a noble cause, I am beyond excited!

Creations for Parkinson’s Research is having a Red White and Blue themed event where we can all do just that. Entice is one of several designers participating in this event with exclusive items and a hunt item that will donate 100% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research via the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Some items will also send 50% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research. Seriously, if that’s not Fabulous I don’t know what is! To go along with my Fantastic finds at the Creations for Parkinson’s event, I also picked up the FREE June group gift from Empire, which does not disappoint!

Going back to the Creations for Parkinson’s Research items from Entice, the red, white, and blue maxi dress pictured to the left is the event exclusive. This lovely summer dress is just 50 lindens and all of the proceeds from purchasing this dress will benefit Parkinson’s research. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes alpha layers, there’s definitely something to fit just about any size and shape. I paired it with these chunky flats from REIGN and I think it’s adorable on! The second dress, also from Entice pictured in the center is the 10 linden hunt item. This fun little party dress also comes in several mesh sizes for easy fitting. The proceeds from this cute dress also go toward Parkinson’s research.

**Please note that the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Red, White, and Blue event ends June 6th.

With two new dresses in hand, the allure of FREE shoes at Empire was irresistible! The June group gift at Empire is this pair of delicate slide-on heels with full color change hud. These are super pretty, and just the right type of heel that can be worn with both casual and dressy attire. The Empire VIP group does have a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however you will have instant access to the current and past group gifts upon joining. Just don’t forget to wear the group tag! The group gift includes shoes fitted for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP feet.

Make A Fresh Start

Snapshot_002
January is a great time for a fresh start, and if you think you might be in need of one, why not start small by participating in The Fresh Start Hunt put on by Gardenia Events?  This quick hunt with just 35 stops will leave your inventory stuffed with great treats, all for just 1L each.  You can even see a prize preview on their official hunt website so that you can decide if it’s worth your linden before you hunt.  Beware though… there are decoys.  Make sure you are buying the yellow star hunt icon, not an invisible prim named as you would think!

I was super pleased with the Long Sleeved Dress in a beautiful shade of blue that I got as a Fresh Start Hunt prize at Psy Designs.  This simple classy cut comes in several mesh sizes and mesh body fits.

The Skin You’re In, is perfect for dressing up.

Alright Fabbies. I have loads to show you in this post, from hunt stuff, store sale stuff, group gift stuff , to cart sale stuff, so I am not going to chat it up too much, I’m just going to get right to it!!

theskin1Lets start with my fun and flirty dress. The Fanny Sequin Dress is from CroM, a new to me store, and it is the gift for the WomenStuff hunt that is currently happening right now. This lovely dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and comes with a hud that will let you change the colour of the solid parts of the dress from the black I have on, to red. This hunt prize is free, although if you continue on in the hunt, be aware that some gifts are set to L$1. The hint for CroM is ‘I love new releases’. It’s pretty easy:) You have until September 30th to go find the little red t-shirt hunt object. theskin2

Next up are my gorgeous shoes. Essenz has put out a new, free group gift, and that is my Bologna heels in Olive Gray. These are for SLink high feet, as well, there is a pair for Maitreya feet too. The group is L$350 to join, but the gifts are given quite often, and you receive a 15% store credit when you wear your tag while shopping there, so I think it is a justifiable fee for sure.

theskin3Now, I did mention more Wash Cart Sale stuff didn’t I. This time, I’m showing off the sweet Danielle skin, in Tone 4 from The Skin You’re In, Direct TP. For L$10 a tone, either the cleavage version, or the non-cleavage version, you get your skin, with a bunch of different tattoo options. My favourite, is the fact the skin is eyebrow-less, and I’m sure you all know by now, my love of a certain pair of eyebrows that I wear constantly. However, the eyebrows that come with the skin are pretty, and come in several shades to match any haircolour. The other options are freckles, dimples, and the teeth I am showing off in the close-up where I have makeup on. The lower picture without makeup, which is a nice fresh face, is what my skin looks like as is, with the freckle layer. Perfect for adding makeup layers to! I’ll add a shot of the cart at the end of this post so you can see all the tones available. You only have until the 16th to grab this deal, so do not wait! theskin5

As I said, the bare face of my skin is perfect for all these makeup layers you can buy now. So how did I decide what to wear? Well, while I was wandering around The Wash sim, looking at the carts, I wandered by the La Boheme store, and saw that they are having an end of the summer sale, 50% off everything except already discounted items. Of course, I had to partake in the deals! All lipstick and eyeshadow packs are only L$35 each, and all nail appliers are L$25 each. I picked out the Matte Plum lips, the Feline Instinct eyes, and as highlighted in the picture below, the Abalone nails.This sale runs until September 15th, so make sure you go fast, you don’t want to miss out. Oh, and as an added bonus, there is a 2 pack set of nail appliers for SLink, set out as a free gift!

theskin4theskin6

Phew! See, told you I had loads of great things to show off, and it all came together in a cute, slightly flirty-sexy, yet still classy look. Love when it all pulls together so easily! I think I took more time trying to decide how to wear my hair than anything else😛 . OK, that’s it for me for now, so I am outta here, but you know I’ll be back. So, until then, TTFN!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

africa1

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

africa2

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items:)

africa4

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

africa3

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

CasualFun3

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service:) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

CasualFun4

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

CasualFun2

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area:) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!
