A hunting we will go

A hunting we will go

A whole slew of new hunts!

The New Year has been kicked off with a number of fun hunts, making me excited to see how many more great ones there are to come. These last couple of days have been spent going down several hunt paths and luck seems to be on my side as I haven’t gotten lost or turned around or spent fifteen minutes in a store only to realize I’ve been looking for the wrong hunt prim all along. Anyway, I’ve put together some of those hunt prizes to come up with my look of the day and here’s the rundown;

Cute and Curvy Hunt 2

Having been stuck in sweaters and jumpers and coats (oh my!) for the better part of two months I was most certainly in the mood for something that showed just a bit more skin. The sultry Amal top from Blasphemic was perfect for my needs. Not only did I adore the unique design of the top, the deep blue and black color combination was very eye catching as well. The Amal top comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) as well as sizes for the Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass and Physique) and Maitreya mesh bodies. There is no alpha layer included in the prize package but I’m wearing the standard size S in the picture above and the top fit like a glove. There are so many sizes included in this gift so play around and hopefully, there will be one that’ll fit. This top is just too great to pass up on! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 costs 1L and the hunt is running until the 31st of this month. Just look for the pink lollipop!

Medieval Hunt

As I’m always in the market for new boots, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Evil Stumper boots when I opened up the hunt prize from Lady Dragon’s Designs. There’s really nothing evil in adding a new pair of shoes to your collection (amirite?) and I really appreciated the rugged cut of this pair. If you’re tired of flat stompers worry not as these boots are heeled and it also has pretty red detailing on its buckles because even when we’re stomping about evilly we can still look pretty while doing it. Full disclosure, however, the boots do not come with an alpha layer. To get a fit I had to play around with some of the other alpha layers that I owned (having a million boots comes in handy really) and ended up having to use the alpha layer provided with my Slink feet. If you do decide to get the Stumper boots for yourself the Medieval Hunt is a 1L hunt that runs until the end of this month. Keep a look out for a shield.

SLF Birthday Hunt

To celebrate four years in SL, Second Life – Free is hosting a 0-1L hunt that spans across the grid as well as the marketplace. Holding both simultaneously is an interesting concept if you ask me and it’s where I found another pair of pretty earrings (if this keeps up I’ve going to need another drawer for accessories). These beautiful ball earrings with its delicate lace flower patterns from Asutris were a great way to spice up the outfit. The pair come with an easy to use resize script so that you play around with the sizing and permissions are set to copy so you can make as many backups as you like. A clearer picture of these darling earrings are provided below but the SLF Birthday Hunt is running until the 11th of February with lots of great prizes to be had. Keep your eyes peeled for the SLF Birthday logo.

Non-hunt related

After an exhaustive time hunting, I decided to kick back a little with a nice spot of fishing at Sn@tch. Love’s blogged about the fantastic new fishing prize {HERE} and while I was trying to get my hands on it (those boots still elude me grrr) I took a peek at what’s in their riot vendors. Needless to say, they’re filled with goodies and the two faced jeans are just one of them. Who knew that such an unsavory aspect in people could translate quite fashionably to clothes. These jeans come in ten distinct patterns (floral shown) with the choice of pants and underwear layer for classic avatars as well as omega appliers for avatars using compatible mesh bodies. I got my copy for 69L if memory serves but if you’re planning on getting these bring…everyone and push those prices down. The riot vendors change out regularly and that only means more goodies.

A hunting we will go headshot

Getting lucky

Ahhh there we go, a close up picture of those fabulous earrings. While we’re on the subject of closeups, I found that skins from Deluxe Body Factory are just great for that. I love how realistic they look and those beauty marks only serve to make their faces more unique. Pictured is the Jasmine skin which I won off the Lucky Letter boards at Deluxe Body Factory. The prize package includes one classic skin in the tone chai as well as a brow shaper and an alpha layer to hide system eyelashes. Lucky Letters are free for group members but if you’re not currently one there is a one-time join fee of 299L. Personally, I find it worth the price as there are a lot of Lucky Letters at the store and Midnight Mania boards as well.

And that’s a wrap. Time to put my aching feet up unless Commander’s (the Polar Bear cub) gone and dug up the carpet again. Catch ya later guys!

Time For Battle

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses!

She Shoots!  She …  Misses Completely

I had some free time this week and thought I wold head over to the Outbreak Sim for some zombie shooting fun.  My shooting aim of course is horrible…  The zombies there don’t even really fear my gun…  If I am aiming at them, they are pretty safe.  It’s the ambulance windshield right next to him that needs to worry…  or the tree WAY over to the left.  It’s a good thing Carson just follows around behind me shooting them all dead.  Sometimes he even lets me think that I hit one or two…  but we both know the truth.

Looking Good For Battle

I may not survive very long on my own in a zombie apocolypse, but at least I’ll look great thanks to the new 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch!!  The new 22 piece prize that was put out this week is called Fish For This:  Time For Battle and comes with all kinds of great pieces to mix and match for a hot battle outfit including system layers, omega appliers, a mesh jacket, footwear, accessories and makeup!

ALLLL  The Pieces…

In my photo, you will see that  am wearing three of the pieces to the outfit.  Below I have added their vendor ad so that you can see all of them!  As previously mentioned on the blog, the 7 Seas Fishing Rod is 100L to purchase, but you can use it over and over again for future prizes which switch out usually every couple of weeks.

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.  Of course I tried to sneak his….  His sweater is always the softest warmest option.  It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch had a whole fatpack of their Agnetha Winter Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on a lucky letter “L”.   Included are eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I found these fabulous Vintage Jeans at Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.  This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again :).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Fishing For Silver

Snapshot_003
Good morning Fabulous Readers! Last week on the FabFree Blog [HERE], I mentioned that Sn@tch had put out a new 7 Seas Fishing Prize and I did show you one of the 20 piece Fish For This:  New Years Grab Bag, but hadn’t had a chance to go through all of the items yet.

Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold

As I am digging my way through the boxes and bags, it seems that most items are gold or silver which is really nice because they will mix and match with a ton of different colours from my inventory!  There are casual items, and formal items and even some accessories and jewelry!

Today I am wearing The Delilah Wrap Top and Changes Crystal Earrings which were both free in the set.  I am wearing the beautiful satin wrap top with a leather skirt from my inventory by Stories & Co. by Flowey, however I think this blouse would look really nice with a pair of black pants too.

How To Fish For This

Again, If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch.  Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too!  No bait is required.

I’m still digging – stay tuned to see more!

Lighting The Way

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! It’s time to get your 7Seas Fishing Rods out again and head to the VIP Lounge, because Sn@tch has a new 20 piece Fish For This Prize to collect! For the next couple of weeks you can try your luck on reeling in pieces of the New Year Grab Bag!  I hadn’t even opened all of the bags yet when I came across #6 and wanted to jump right into it and show it off to you!  I can hardly wait to dive back in and see what else is in the grab bag set, because judging on the first few I opened, I’m going to say it’s a great haul!

If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch.  Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too!  No bait is required.

Lucky #6

Within the 20 piece set, #6 is the dazzling gold formal gown called Rhona Sequin (Gold), and I am displaying it today.  This dress is beautifully textured and sparkles when the light hits it.

Sizes included:

  • Mesh XS-XL + Alpha layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

ps.  Not my dog!  Honest.

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

Old Town_002

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

The Not So Magical Blanket of Snow

Snapshot_005
Hello FabFree… Do you see the look of disdain on my face?  I am now past the “ooo look at the blanket of magical snow, it’s so white and clean” phase, and have moved onto “Grrrrrr rr rrrrr, again!?!”.  It’s so dark in the morning still and that walk needs to be shovelled!  You know that snow spray on the Frosty Returns cartoon?  If it really existed, I may invest!  Maybe someone will come up with a “Snow Roomba”!  Anyways, enough of my complaining…  Maybe Carson will come shovel for me? 😀

I do have good news to share and that should brighten my day, and hopefully yours too!

Sn@tch a Freebie

The eight lucky boards at Sn@tch are free for everyone to use, and have been recently updated with new prizes.  If your lucky letter comes up you might just win the Sacraficial Lamb set that you see me wearing today.  It includes the printed black pants and star top in system layers and Omega.  Also included is a texture change HUD for the top with several different colours.  I have added on a jacket and boots from my inventory, however if you’d like to wear them alone, cuffs for the sleeves of the shirt and pants are included.

If you happen to be snowed in too…

Snap a picture of it and enter our Snowed In Photo Challenge that ends in just a few days.  Be sure to double check the rules before entering and good luck!

Her Blahness

Snapshot_004Hello FabFree Readers!  As much as I love red.. and even green on occasion, I am getting a little tired of wearing red and green, and green and red!  I was really happy to find a couple of free gifts that were still holiday themed, but in different colours.  Today… I’m in black, gold and red!

Starting with my boots…

These very well made winter boots by Fri.day are red, black white and gold and are free (priced at 0L) under the giant Christmas Tree at The Arcade.  They are compatible with my Maitreya Lara body (I’m sure they’ll work with whatever you are wearing!), and include an alpha layer for those on the system body too.

My Nutcracker Pants!

I picked up these awesome Nutcracker Pants by Sn@tch for free in the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  These are compatible with system bodies and include an OMEGA applier.  A texture change HUD is included for several different colours, but I went with coal, because it showed the gold nutcracker design down the sides of the legs best. As Kathryn mentioned in a previous post…  if you are trying to stuff your pants into a pair of boots, appliers are really the way to go!
Tres Blah December 2016 Group Gift

Her Blahness

If you like my sweatshirt, you should head on over to Tres Blah and slap on your “Her Blahness” tag above your head to pick up the Olsen Winter Sweatshirt as a free group gift in five different fun prints!  Arrows are my jam, but as you can see from the Tres Blah vendor ad to the left, the other prints are super cute too!

Sizes included:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique

This group will set you  back 100L, but there are several other group gifts to pick up like these [HERE] and [HERE], making it well worth the join fee!

Oh Deer

Snapshot_001
Hi there Fabulouses!  As I was updating the FabFree Holiday Advent Listing (no.. it’s not quite done yet – still working on it and I will be sure to announce when it’s ready!) over the last couple of days, I was in the mood for a little taste of Christmas.  It was perfectly timed that Zenith put out a new holiday themed group gift, as it was just what I needed to complete my look.

Adding a little holi to your day

At Zenith, when you join their free inworld group you gain access to a plethora of free group gifts including the latest gift – The X’mas Group Gift (2016) that includes the following:

  • X’mas Deer Headband
  • X’mas Deer Headband w/ Stars (as shown on my avatar)
  • X’mas Deer Tail

As I mentioned, there are plenty of other group gifts to pick up there as well, and many of them have been blogged here on FabFree if you would like to see a bit of a refresher of some Zenith group gift posts:

  1. Happy Chinese New Year by Glimmer
  2. No Rain In Here by Love
  3. Spaced Out & Holidazed by Glimmer
  4. Get Your Goat by Julianna

Sparkling Sn@tch

Like the sparkly sweater I am wearing today?  Me too!  This Tatum Sweater can be found in a fatpack of colours at Sn@tch in the riot vendors which you can find in the VIP Lounge area.  If you time it right, depending on the amount of people standing near the boards, you can pick up this fab sweater in ALL the colours as low as 45L!  TP in your friends and family to help bring the price down.
