Dapper Bunny

Dapper Bunny

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I hope this day finds you well. I don’t know about you, but I needed to get out of the house, even if it was just in virtual reality. If you’re looking for a way to spend a bit of time, there are several hunts happening around the grid right now.

The Hopping Along Hunt is a dollarbie hunt with 22 total stops, not too long, but still plenty to keep you busy.  The hunt runs from now until the end of April and the prizes appear to be women’s clothing, including shoes and accessories, as well as Easter themed décor. I hunted my dapper bunny tank top at The Bold Llama, and my cute green purse at Loordes of London.

Shirt Sizes Included: Ocacin, Belleza Frey, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Belleza Freya, Matireya Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Ebody, Classic Mesh, Alpha Layer, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique

Hints:

The Bold Llama – “Go left, look up, and remember no one puts Baby in a corner except llamas.” 

Loordes of London – “Look near the hunt poster.”

Oceanside

Oceanside

Hi Fab Free, question, is it still called breakfast if it’s not morning? I don’t know about you, but I could eat bacon, sausage, and eggs any time of day. Add some fresh fruit to the mix and that makes it perfect. This scrumptious looking meal, and my tied tee are both available at The Cart Sale priced too fabulously to pass them up. Keep reading for all the delicious details, and check the end for full credits. Lastly, enjoy your breakfast! 😛

Dark Knight Décor 

My mouth-watering meal including the coffee and cutlery are from Dark Knight Decor’s booth at The Cart Sale. Along with this traditional breakfast, there are a handful of other equally detailed food items. There’s also a few kitchen décor bits and bobs to be had. The breakfast set I picked up is just 25 linden, and will look fantastic on your table, or balanced on the arm of your seaside chair.

Dark Water Designs 

An iconic warm weather wardrobe stable has to be a tied tee. This baby blue and white top by Dark Water Designs is also available at The Cart Sale. There are several spring-like shades available for 25 linden each. These tops are not only cute, they come in several sizes, and have an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (V1, V2), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Ever Green

Ever Green

Even though it’s no longer St. Patrick’s Day, the color green is still very much in season. Recently Aline did a beautiful job of telling us about the Lucky Glam Hunt happening at LEIGH in her post “Give the Green Light.” This in-store hunt is still going on and will last until March 31st. I went to check it out for myself and I gotta say that if green is your color, this hunt is definitely worth the effort.

So for this post I’m showing off a few more of the gorgeous green prizes from the Lucky Glam Hunt at LEIGH. I managed to hunt down the “Beloved” dress, the leg chains, some sparkly green glitter nail polish for just 10 lindens each. The leg chains come with a hud to change the color of the metal. The glittery manicure is in 4 shades of sparkling green. I also got lucky and found the free prize which includes a shamrock leg tattoo, and several “Irish” roses with different hold options. I’ll add a copy of the Lucky Glam Hunt key below. Also, if you click the hunt sign at LEIGH you’ll get a notecard with hints for each of the hunt prizes. The hunt object is a glowy green shamrock. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

  • Beloved Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
    Leg Chains Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Be Sweet

Sweet

Hello Fab Free! I’m sorry to have been away so long, that ever persistent Real Life thing has been quite demanding. Needless to say I’m happy to be here and blogging again! The Candyland 2 event recently started and there are a lot of fun freebies to be had. I picked up the free event gift buy Kawaii Couture and the one from The Bold Llama. The gifts at the Candyland 2 event require the free-to-join Evil Bunny Hunt group. Keep reading for details about each of these sweet gifts. Credits are listed at the end like always.

Kawaii Couture 

I think if there was a comfort food desert milk and cookies might be one of mine. A self proclaimed sugar addict, I couldn’t resist these sweet treats from Kawaii Couture at Candyland 2. The milk bottle and heart shaped cookies are their free Candyland 2 event gifts. The held treats have bento hold poses.

The Bold Llama 

My tank top is the free Candyland 2 gift by The Bold Llama. With the word “sweet” followed by a winky-face, this top is perfect for my fellow sugar junkies, or just to let people know that like me, you too can be sweet when you want to. 😛 Whatever the message is sweet, and this shirt is too cute to pass up, especially for free.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Ebody, Ocacin, Standard Mesh (xs- XL) + Alpha Layer

Let’s do Brunch

Brunch

Hello Fab Free! Two things I thoroughly enjoy are brunch, and freebies. So for this post I decided to combine the two. I picked up a new group gift tattoo by Carol G, and the Fab Free group gift at Revelation. Also, the Carol G group changed, and is free to join for a very limited time, so sit back, enjoy some waffles, and read on. Credits will, as always, be listed at the end.

Carol G

You may have read or heard that Carol G made a new store group recently. Carol G has also stated that the new group will be free to join for a L I M I T E D time to give everyone enough time to switch from the original group to the new one. You know what that means? You got it, free group gifts with no join fees! The upper body tattoo I am wearing is a recent group gift that can be found at the Carol G shop located on the Scandalize sim only. This gift will not be available at the Carol G main store. Also, it can be worn by mesh and classic non-mesh avatars!

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic Tattoo Layers, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Omega Applier, Legacy Applier, Maitreya Applier

I picked up this ruffled top and skirt outfit at Revelation for free with my Fab Free group tag. This free outfit comes in several sizes, and has a color/texture change hud that lets you customize different parts of the top and skirt. The skirt has solid color options, and a few cute patterns, while the top has solid color choices only. To get your free outfit head over to Revelation and look for the “Group Gift” wall that has several packages set out in front of it. The black/dark grey package in the front row is the Fab Free gift, just click it while wearing your Fab Free tag and the outfit will be sent to you.

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I think there’s some unspoken rule that when dating someone you must at some point wear one of their shirts. I’ve certainly stolen borrowed Blue’s shirts before. This time I claimed his pajama shirt; though honestly I don’t think it bothered him at all. These royal blue heart print pajamas are the his and hers Sin City 3 hunt prize at The Sissy Bar.

The Sin City 3 Hunt has multiple paths. These prizes are the male and female path prizes at The Sissy Bar priced at 1 linden each. Both the men’s pajama pants and the women’s pajama top come in several sizes. There is also an alpha layer and standard mesh sizes so these dollarbie hunt gifts are suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.

Men’s Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (s-XL) + Alpha Layer, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, Slink, TMP
Women’s Sizes Included: Classica Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Men’s Prize Hint “Hiding next to a gas pump trying to copy it so I can blend in.”

Women’s Prize Hint“Hiding behind the guardian bells so I feel safe.”

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.

Women’s Sizes (Jane Sweater): Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Legacy, Slink Hourglass

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!

Tis The Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “I love nutcrackers, reindeer and snowmen.”
