Me Time

Me Time

Oh FabFree, I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s finally Friday!  It’s time for a nice little snack, and some rather pretty and entirely autumnal sake to go with it.  I need some me time more than I can put into words, and it starts with this little Friday ritual right here.

We Continue to Hunt

I’m totally having fun showing off all the fun gifts on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt.  I’ve got two awesome finds to show you today, starting with this cropped tank top from Masoom.  It’s a bright fallish orange, perfect for relaxing around the house and looking cute while you’re at it.  It’s completely free, you just need to do a bit of hunting for it!

The second item I’m showing off is the extremely delicate and detailed sake set that I picked up at Ishiku.  They are constantly blowing me away with their sweet and perfectly crafted items.  You can pick up the sake cups, little box, tray and (my fave) the japanese maple leaves for just 5L each.  Look for the glowing rainbows at both sims, and you’re well on  your way!

The Netted Stars

The Netted Stars

Ah yes, one of my fave fashion moments is back – the celestial being!  It doesn’t take much for her to emerge – just a bit of lilac, lavender or smoky hues, a smattering of stars and crescent moons, and there she is, all netted in stars and sparkling brightly.

Gotta Love to Hunt

The FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt rages on, and I could NOT resist this gorgeous dress from Kaithleen’s.  It’s got some really lovely detailing on it, which I think is rather sexy.  You can get it by hunting for the little neon rainbow at Kaithleen’s, then paying 5L for the contents.  There are two other just as gorgeous prizes there, so don’t miss out on them either!

And the Sparkle

I also couldn’t resist this lovely head jewelry from Harambee.  The moment I saw it I knew I had to own it!  Yet another prize on the Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt, it comes in several different metallic shades, all at just 4L each.   How pretty!

See you shining stars around!

Soon, It Will Be Slothoween!

It's Almost Slothoween

Hello there, Fab Free! With the new month, we have a bunch of hunts that got started, and I eagerly hit the trail of The Boo Bunny Hunt this week. My favorite prize of all is this adorable tank top. It makes me smile every time I see it, and I picked it up for just a small fee (plus a bit of time spent searching).

I’ll Do it Tomorrow…

…at least that’s what I imagine the sweet-faced critter on my new shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. might be saying as he gives us a friendly wave. The Slothoween Tee features a cute creature lounging atop a carved pumpkin, brightly colored autumn leaves, and a crescent moon in a star-filled sky. The vibrant colors really pop against the dark background! With its narrow shoulder straps and slightly cropped hem, I’d be grabbing a jacket in real life when wearing this top, but hey, this is SL, and it’s all good 🙂 The prize folder contains an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for a variety of mesh body types. Each item in The Boo Bunny Hunt costs one Linden dollar, and you’ll be searching for pieces of wrapped candy. You have until Slothoween, er I mean Halloween, to collect some amazing prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Life is Gourd

Jack O’Lanterns Shining Bright

Over at satus Inc., I found these Halloween Pumpkin Earrings that were the perfect accessory for my outfit as a free group gift. They come in gold, green, and red, and are sized for female and male avatars. While in the shop, I also picked up an older free group gift to round out my look – charcoal-colored Stella Leggings. Inside the folder, you’ll find sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body types. There is a 25 Linden dollar join fee for the satus Inc. group, but with thirty-two (yes thirty-two!) other group gifts, it’s well worth the price.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, 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!

Lovely in Lavender

Where Flowers Bloom

Hello again, Fab Free!  With Friday and Saturday just around the corner, I’m popping in quickly to share an alluring dress that is perfect for a weekend date night.  Best of all, with just a small investment of time, plus the budget-friendly prize fee, you’ll have plenty of Linden dollars left for shopping!

It’s Our Turn, Now

Last month the Men Only Hunt took place, but it’s time for the fellas to step aside.  The Woman Hunt kicked off on September 1st, and features clothing, shoes, furniture, and the like just the ladies!  My first stop on the hunt trail was Wiccan Wears, and I have to say I am thrilled with the Felicity Splash dress.  A soft shade of lavender with pink and pale green accents, it features long sleeves for cooler autumn nights, an asymmetrical hem, and a sassy, plunging neckline.  I love the way the bodice drapes ever so slightly to emphasize your figure.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply locate the hunt object (bright red lips) and pay the one linden fee.  The hunt runs through September 30th and has sixteen stops along the way.

Summer Blooms

The Colors of Summer

Hello, Fab Free!  Over at the Free Dove sim, there is a hunt going on that features prizes from three designers.  Each sponsor has hidden 5 gifts throughout Free Dove and 5 at their own main stores, so with a small investment of time and a bit of sleuthing, you could come away with 30 additions to your SL wardrobe.  Now that’s a major win in my book!

Sun-Kissed Hues of Summer

This bright and cheerful sleeveless dress is one of the free items to discover from MadCatCreations Boutique.  Featuring a jewel-style neckline, an off-center, gathered seam, and a slightly asymmetrical hem, this mini is super cute!  Its flirty length is perfect for a casual date night.  With the included HUD, you can choose from ten different texture options, so it’s like getting a collection of dresses in one package.  The Summer/Spring Colors dress is concealed somewhere on the Free Dove sim.  In order to collect each hunt item, you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but the group is completely free to join.  The Free Dove August Hunt runs through August 31st, so there is still plenty of time for you to start searching.

Sizes/Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya
  • eBODY Curvy
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra Original, Bimbo and Low
  • Legacy and Legacy Perky

Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.
