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!

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

Until my next post,

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

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.

FabFree Post: Beachy Babe

I was swimmin’ in the Caribbean

The animals were hiding behind the rock, except the little fish but they told me “the weekend sales lists are on fire!” Where is my mind?! Fish don’t shop, but Pixies do! 😉

There are so many hot summer items I couldn’t stop myself from shopping, so here are the pretty little details on my new favorite bikini from EVIE Beach Affair comes in 7 colors, 2 patterns, and comes with a sexy little open-top to wear with your bikini!!

Fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

 

I cannot leave you without telling you about my new tattoo! ~APOLLEMIS Tattoos~ has this adorable chest tattoo, (seeing I have one in real life) I love seeing beautiful pieces of work in SL as tattoos. So I popped over and snatched this steal of a deal for L$50, why is it a deal? Oh well, there’s BOM, Legacy, Maitreya, and Omega appliers in Bright or Dark. So for me to stray from my normal tattoo shops its HUGE and I felt that sharing is caring.

Happy Shopping!!
xoxo

Just a Little Bit


Just a Little Bit

A brat?! Who me? Maybe just a little bit. lol For today’s post I have 3 goodies to share with you, the Cae Saturday Sale item, a free group gift by Beautiful Hustler, and a free wearable demo from Alaskametro.

Cae

For the Saturday Sale only, Cae has out a sassy choker/collar that reads “brat” in pretty cursive. It’s highly detailed, and marked just 75 linden. Included in the package is the choker in two versions (with or without peanut), and a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from several metal, and gemstone options.

Beautiful Hustler 

Next up for this post, Beautiful Hustler has a new free group gift out. This long sleeve slightly cropped top and the glittery striped pants are free to all Beautiful Hustler group members. At this time the Beautiful Hustler group is free to join. The pants have a long tailored look to them with a small cuff at the bottom. The top and pants can be worn separate and come in multiple sizes.

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

Alaskametro

Lastly, I picked up a wearable demo lipstick by Alaskametro for free on the Marketplace. This Catwa applier lipstick with rust colored lip and gold flecks is just really pretty. Definitely play with the opacity for the lipstick layer on your Catwa head while wearing this lipcolor. I think it’s pretty at multiple levels. This free wearable demo lipstick applier includes the color shown only.

Just another day in paradise

Just another day in paradise

Hello FabFree! I’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree lately, and it’s nice mixing in some lovely freebies so I don’t go completely broke! Well…don’t go completely broke as quickly, rather. But even when I’m purchasing things I typically tend to be a bit of a bargain shopper. Come along, I’ll tell you about the pretty things that I’ve got on!

From Top…

This shirt is a new free group gift from Tachinni and the group is free to join. It hangs really nicely and I love the pretty pink shade. The gift comes in 4 sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya.

…To Bottom…

One can never have too many pairs of cute jeans shorts. These are really nice – plenty short but not “Is she wearing pants or underwear?” short. They are from Amazing Creations, a store which has been blogged her over and over. Becauuuuse there are lots of free group gifts up on the wall and the group is free to join. These shorts come in the white that I’m wearing, black, and blue. All three colors need to be “purchased” separately but they are free group gifts so I’m using the word purchase loosely. They also come with a color change HUD but I can’t seem to make it do anything? Maybe you’re smarter than me and you can figure it out, or maybe lag was just getting the best of me. Regardless, the three colors that they come in are sure to cover all your needs and they come sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy and Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy

…And almost everything else!

I love shopping Fifty Linden Friday and the Saturday Sale. Both events are full of fantastic designers selling beautiful things for 50L and 75L, respectively. They pop up here from time to time but not too often because by the time we’re able to get a picture and a blogpost together the sale is quite often over. This week I got my Glam Affair head applier from FLF and my hair and flip flops from the Saturday Sale. I have no idea what’s available still but if you don’t already shop these sales, then here’s your PSA to keep an eye out for the pretties that will be on offer next week!

Vanilla Bae Skies♥

Vanilla Bae Skies

Hello Everyone!

I know it has been over a week since I have posted last and for that I do apologize! An emergency arose in RL and I had to take some time away to be with family! Don’t worry though, everything is great and everyone is doing well♥

Now, how about some awesome finds from Vanilla Bae?!

The Saturday Sale should be over, but some creators leave their vendors out for some time after the sale. And Vanilla Bae has done just that! This little dress is a steal from this last weeks round of the Saturday Sale. You can have this beauty for 75L, I know it’s maxing out our finds here at Fab Free, but I couldn’t pass this up. It is part of her “Strip Me” Collection and comes with two adorable summery prints and a menu for some adult flare, if you so choose. I am not sure how much longer the vendor will be available, so hurry over and snatch it up!

Arwen Dress- 75L Flower Special Sizing:

  • Maitryea
  • Slink- HourGlass
  • Belleza- Isis & Freya

For Vanilla Bae Group members there is a new  gift and this round— it’s shoes! Now maybe I fall into the stereo-type, but I love shoes, I can shoe shop all day. Which is funny, because in RL, I hate shoes, give me a pair of flip flops and I am good to go! Rain or shine. The in-world group is 10L to join, but the heels are FREE, once you’re a member! These shoes are also apart of her “Strip Me” line at Vanilla Bae, the menu allows you to grant public or private use, or even a “master” function, where you can grant your partner or person(s) of your choosing to “strip” you at any given time. The menu you is available with any of the “Strip Me” line. These heels are simple and elegant. They come with a 3 color option HUD, and the textures are outstanding! I have yet to be disappointed with anything Vanilla Bae!

Sky Heels- ‘Strip Me’ Group Gift Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- HourGlass
  • Belleza

Thrifty Finds

Snapshot_007Hi there Fabulouses! Guess who just released a new wearable demo in their marketplace store??!  Yep – Orange*Pekoe!  This sweet peach coloured Valentine Cardigan is available for just 2L as a wearable demo in unisex/adult/teen sizes, as well as a with or without the shirt option.  I am wearing it with a pair of my favourite new jeans (Addam’s Real Worn Out Jeans @ this round of Uber) and the Spencer Flats that I picked up at Reign this past weekend for The Saturday Sale price of 75L.  These cute tied flats are still available at the sale price as of tonight in case you missed them on the weekend.

I also wanted to mention the Aphorism Thrift Shop Décor items I have used in the set for my photo today.  These items are 50L per play at this round of The Gacha Garden.  If you play 20 times, you will be gifted with the Seeds of Inspiration prize which is the Reclaimed Wood Clock.  This clock actually tells time, and allows you to set your own timezone (or your partner’s if you need a cheat sheet!).
