Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Xmas in JulyWe’re starting to wind down to the end of July, and there are a whole bunch of hunts ending on the 31st that you probably want to get in on. There is no shortage of themes… sun, cats, explosions, tea, vikings, and yes… even Christmas. That’s right… Christmas. Just have a look at the hunts in this report if you don’t believe me.

Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

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!

No Passport Needed

Hello again, FabFree Dear ones! I don’t know about y’all but I need a vacation! Taking eighty or so days to trapse around shopping at fabulous stores and collecting great prizes sounds like just the thing.

No Passport Needed

My first stop on the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt was at Nerdy Girl. I am absolutely in love with this dress! I spent a large part of my collage age years in Oklahoma and route 66 runs right through there. I have very fond memories of cruising the ‘mother road’ through the back country and stopping at funky little diners and dives along the way. The ‘Vintage Summer Road trip ‘ dress would have been the perfect get up to cruise around in! It comes in all the standard sizes and the little bow at the waist is optional.

I had to have hair that would ‘flow’ in the breeze as I drive so I stopped at Kokolores’ shop at the Hair Fair and picked up their free gift – Ash . It comes in a very nice variety of colors and is unisex. I’m thinking it would look tres smexy on some of you guys out there who rock the longer hair.

As my real life BH  ( That’s Beloved Husband ) will tell you: I never travel light. Poor guy is pulling out his hair trying to pack everything for our move as it is.  Annnyway, Park Place Home Decore has set out the sleek three piece luggage group for us as part of the Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt. It comes loaded with 22 poses for guys and gals. It’s just the thing to pack up your souvenirs from the trip!

The Hair Fair only lasts until July 26! That’s just a few more days, so if you need hair ( and who doesn’t??) go support the Wigs for Kids charity and grab some marvelous free gifts.

The Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt runs all the way till September 30th!

As a teen I had day-dreams of one day becoming a runway model. I didn’t want fame. I just wanted to stomp down that runway wearing something awesome with fierce hair and makeup! This ensemble is exactly the sort of look I imagined wearing. Lucky for us, the look and feel of this fierce fashion can be had without a fierce price tag.

Starting from top to bottom, this sleek stylish up-do is a FREE gift by Blues Hair at the Hair Fair. The style called “Lunaire” comes in a fatpack so there’s certain to be a shade that suits everyone. The Hair Fair ends in just a few days, so don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift!

You’ll have to check out the photo below to get a better look at these other-worldly eyes Pru has in. They are a dollarbie by Pulcino at the Okinawa Summer Festival. The eyes come in system layers, and include mesh attachments. There is also a green version included with the “blue” version shown. While you’re at the Pulcino booth at the Okinawa Summer Festival, check out the manicure Pru is wearing. You can get it for just 45 lindens for the duration of the festival. I like the metallic look with the vibrant color and tiny anchor detail. I love nautical themed  items for summer! Don’t wait on this one, the Okinawa Summer Festival ends July 23rd.

Now I know you’re curious about this fierce eye-makeup. This masked look is courtesy of SlackGirl. Called “Imperia” the eye-shadow set is the current FREE group gift at SlackGirl. The gift includes a palate with several variations of this style, each with the exotic red mask. The makeup comes in system layers and a Lelutka head applier. The SlackGirl group is FREE to join. To get your gift, wear your SlackGirl tag and click the pink gift box in the center of the room at the landing point.

This great dress is one of five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. This along with four other prizes are just 10 lindens each, you’ve just gotta hunt for them! I love the cut and style of this dress, I think it’s cute on and it wears well. It’s the fifth of the five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. Happy Hunting!

To go with the dress from More Than Ever, I picked up the current FREE group gift at Finesmith. The most recent group gift at Finesmith is this gorgeous gold bracelet in a honeycomb design with a detailed honey bee accent. I thought the bracelet went perfectly with the gold belt that is part of the dress. The Finesmith group is FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Completing the outfit are these unique heels from EB Atelier. Also a FREE group gift, these gold and black heels are meant for Slink High feet. Like the bangle from Finesmith, I think the gold details in these shoes ties in perfectly with the gold belt on the dress. The EB Atelier group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag and head to the EB Atelier main location to pick up these fun heels. The gift is located on the lower level.

Hello hello, my FabFree dears! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Mine has been particularly crazy as we get ready to move. But in amidst the boxes and packing I had to get my freebie fix!

encore2_001This is the “Priscilla” dress and shoes from Encore. You may remember the beautiful things we’ve seen from Encore at our own Cart Sales at the Wash. I am happy to report that the Cart sale was just a teaser for all the lovely things you’ll find in the shop and at Encore’s Marketplace page.  I am totally in love with this dress. The details are simply gorgeous and that fabric… just perfect.  Plus, you get the cute matching shoes for SLink mid feet.  All this for 0L with no group needed. encore2_002

I don’t know how long this very generous gift will be out, so if you like the look hurry down to Encore.
