Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

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!

It’s Time for Some Retail Therapy

Autumn Day

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  I decided to spend some time today exploring the Whispering Windz sim.  If you are looking for a lovely place to visit, I’d highly recommend taking a journey there yourself.  It has meandering paths that work their way through a beautiful fall landscape.  Before my idyllic afternoon, I picked up a couple of free gifts that I am excited to share with you.

But First, Lipstick

I decided to check out the 18th Round of MIIX Event this morning, and I’m so glad I did.  Right at the landing zone, there is a free gift set out for members of the Hype Events ::: News and Offers ::: group, which is free to join.  The Make Me Matte Lipstick Set from Opulein is compatible with Lelutka Evo and Evo X, Genus and Catwa HD Pro mesh heads.  It features two creamy shades, pink and taupe, in BOM appliers as well as a tattoo layer.   I opted for the blush-colored version, but either one will leave your lips looking lusciously soft.  I’ve included a close-up photo below so you can get a better view of this gorgeous makeup.  While you’re at the event location, you might want to tap the giveaway board for a chance to win a Lelutka or Furtacor gift card and Blogger Room access.  Good luck if you decide to enter!

‘Tis Bat Season

I am a kid at heart and look forward to October 31st every year, so I decided to get my Halloween vibe going a little early.  Over at Mister Razzor Body Shop, I joined the group for just 10L and picked up a free ear tattoo as a group gift.  It is comprised of a small cauldron of bats – or is it a colony?  I am not exactly sure, but I call it adorable!  Created exclusively for the Lelutka Evo X mesh head, this gift includes a 100 percent version as well as a lighter 75 percent option.  I love how it is playful the design is!

Lost in Thought

Weekend Sales

I always look forward to the 60L Happy Weekend Sale, which runs Saturday through Sunday.  With a very reasonable price tag of just 60 Linden dollars per item, you can pick up some wonderful additions to your SL wardrobe without breaking the bank.  Today, I scored the Jola Dress from Meva.  With ruffled short sleeves, a laced bodice, and a flirty hemline, this ebony frock is ideal for early fall, and I have to say, the color is perfect for October.  If you toss in a witch hat and broomstick, it could even double for a Halloween costume.  The folder includes versions for the standard and petite Maitreya mesh bodies.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Lara Petite

Over at [The Forge], I found another Happy Weekend offering for just 60 Linden dollars – a pair of over-the-knee stiletto style boots.  They look like they were tailor-made to coordinate with my new dress.  I really like the added detail of the golden buckles, which contrast beautifully with the buttery soft leather of the footwear.   Fortunately for me, my avatar has no problem maintaining her balance on the slender heels of these curve-hugging boots.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but you can also find the Hellen Boots in seventeen other colors (each sold separately).

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara

Until next time, happy shopping!

Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

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.

Bittersweet

Bittersweet farewell

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  After some retail therapy, I spent the afternoon at the beach today, enjoying the last burst of summer.  The beginning of September is always bittersweet to me.  I look forward to the crisp days of fall, but I’m never really ready for the change of seasons.  Pretty soon, it will be time to pack crop tops and shorts away and pull out cozy sweaters and long pants.  For today though, I am rocking my latest hunt find and a cute pair of shorts.

Loving that Dragon!

This adorable crop top from Grumble features bright pops of color splashed over a black background and slender shoulder straps that allow my skin to soak up the sun.  I really love the jewel tones in the pattern, which draws inspiration from the theme of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Both Jacx and I have already shared hunt items here and here, but with 42 stops along the way, there are plenty of other budget-friendly goodies hidden on the trail.  Each hunt prize has a 3L price tag, but the sponsor fees are for the IKSDP Harambee project Gwassi Kenya schools.  It feels good to scoop up some new items for my wardrobe and support a worthy cause at the same time.  The event runs through September 30th.

A Vintage Vixen

A Vintage Vixen
Hello Fabulous Readers!  Have you checked out the Fifth Anniversary Celebration for Bundles yet?  This autumn-themed event runs through September 25th and features 31 designers, many of whom are offering gifts along with their displays.  I have to admit, despite my name, I do start longing for the crisp days of autumn as the heat of summer drags on.  What better way to anticipate fall than to wander around a sim drenched in scattered leaves and pick up free goodies along the way?

Simply Chic

One of my favorite of the free items at Bundles is this Lace Dress from Nilsy.  With its pale pink hue, semi-sheer lace, and full skirt, this frock is the picture of classic elegance.  I don’t know, maybe I am a bit of an old soul, but I love vintage style!  With elbow-length sleeves and a high neckline, it will transition beautifully as summer fades away so I will be able to wear it well into fall.  Since this gift is completely free, you can add a new outfit to your collection without making the slightest dent in your budget!

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Mesh Fit in XS, S, M, L, SL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until next time,

Find Your Wings

Don't Walk, Fly

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  I’m back to share one final prize that I discovered while participating in the Free Dove August Hunt.  The event ends soon, so if you like this shimmery outfit as much as I do, don’t walk, fly to the hunt trail.

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

I love dressing up as much as the next girl, but some days, I just want to wear pants.  What I love about this free outfit is I don’t have to give up any of my shine with its eye-catching texture and curve-hugging fit.  This sexy number features a gold corset, sleek leggings, and coordinating shoes.  Packed with details such as glittering sequins, a laced back, decorative seam work on the pants and golden chains on the heels, the Dancin’ Doll outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  As I stated in my post here, each of the hunt sponsors has 5 gifts on the Free Dove sim, and 5 hidden at their main location.   To add EC’s tenth hunt prize to your collection, you will have to journey to the Emerald Couture main sim, activate your Free Dove group tag, and locate the hunt object, which is a tiny green emerald.   Since both the hunt items and the group are free, you can add this entire ensemble to your inventory at no cost to you.  The hunt runs through August 31st, so don’t delay if you’d like a copy of this hunt gift for your very own.

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I told you about a prize I collected in the Free Dove August Hunt.  I’m back again today with a gem of a dress that I discovered completely for free on the same hunt trail.

Sparkle and Shine

Hidden somewhere on the Free Dove sim, the flirty Lacy Outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  With a delicate floral overlay applied onto a solid black background, high neckline, and sheath-style cut, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  I love the added border of silver trim on the hemline!  The package includes coordinating ebony, lace-trimmed heels with delicate ankle straps, so you will be all dressed up and ready to go without having to search for matching shoes.  To scoop up this hunt prize (#3 from Emerald Couture), you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but it has a very budget-friendly join fee of zero Linden dollars.  The hunt continues through August 31st, so there is plenty of time remaining for you to do some hunting of your own.
