Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Here’s a little something for merchants. If you’d like to get your store into a hunt, these are the ones that are looking for participants…

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Summer Classic

Greetings FabFree,

Summer Classic

In the spirit of the long hot end of summer days, I have donned a classic summer look today. This white linin looking jacket is the free gift from Gabriel for the L’Homme readers. The jacket is paired with an attached white tee shirt to keep it from looking stodgy. The mesh jacket comes in one size with a good alpha and I found the fit to be perfect.

I also added the ‘Rock Star’ necklace from The Forge which I first showed you here. Happily, the free gift is still available if you missed it last month. As always, L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

90s Dayz

90s Dayz

The Back to School looks are starting (Have you entered your back to school picture for our FabFree photo contest yet? Be on the look out for all those snapping cameras and enter your photo [here]!) I came across a 1L shirt with vest — they come in separate pieces making for an easy look that is classic — that I really wanted to share.

This is the 90s Dayz gift for 1L from the School Drools Hunt that you can pick up at Furry Fashion. Despite the store name, this mesh shirt and vest in all the standard sizes works great for a standard human avatar as well. And the classy black button down shirt looks great alone, or with the added separate piece vest. I’ve added a photo of the each so you get an idea of what you are getting with the hunt prize.

Don’t delay, get out there and hunt this Fab gift down!

Babydoll

Snapshot_003

Good morning FabFree Readers! I’m popping on here real quick to share news about a group gift with you before I head off to RL work.  Over the weekend, I found that Blacklace had put out a new group gift!  This group is 99L, but if you are a fan of lingerie in SL, you’ll want to be a part of this one!  Blacklace makes really pretty sets for all kinds of body styles.

The new group gift is called Trixie and is a sweet babydoll style set with panties.  This set  comes in Slink, Maitreya and Belleza specific styles with omega appliers and system layer options for the panties.

Hopefully you’ll have something more exciting planned to wear it for, than playing with cats lol.
