Spooky Season

Spooky Season

See ya later September, here comes October!  It’s time to stop pretending that we’re not ready for all things Fall… and Halloween!  Sometimes we put on a brave front and pretend we’re eschewing it all…too early and all that jazz… but once October rears its head, all pretenses are thrown out the window!  Plus, it’s Shop & Hop Time!

Boo!

It’s Shop & Hop !  We always look forward to this grandiose event when it comes around, and though it’s huge and a giant undertaking to visit all the stalls, you can’t help but marvel at how many great free gifts there are, and how many fabulous deals await.   You’ll need to put several hours aside for this one, it’s the monster of all events.  If you’ve never done any Shop & Hops before, you’re in for some fun (and maybe a bit of hard work too…) to get these goodies, no need to join a group, just buy the gifts for 0L, or click on the packages and they’ll be delivered to you.  Here’s what struck my fancy:

  • FREE dress by Pixicat sized for Freya, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Maitreya Flat, Maitreya Petite & Hourglass
  • FREE shoes by Essenz sized for Belleza, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE drink by Dahlia 
  • FREE nails by Witchcraft sized for Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza & Slink and an HUD to change to 6 different colours

Now, Shop & Hop doesn’t officially open until tomorrow, but if you want early access, just join the official group by pasting the code below into local chat and head on over.  Also, if you’d like to see which stores are participating and get a direct slurl to each booth, check out the offical blog post from Linden Labs HERE.

Quiet Time
Sometimes we all need a quiet moment, to just breathe. So this will be a quickie.

Recharging The Batteries

Second Life mirrors RL in many ways, one being the hurry, hurry, ding, ding (as my mom used to call it.) Trying to get to the event that is full, the next sale, picking up GG’s. TP here, TP there. You know what I’m saying. Right? Jacx is taking time in her garden to relax and unwind, in a bright neon sweatshirt to lift her spirts. The sweatshirt is the free September GG, that comes with a 6 neon color hud. This shirt is from a new to me creator -Slackr. Group fee 50L to join, with other gifts available.

Trick or Treat has left me with tons of extra candy that I seem to have dropped on the floor. The 5 seconds rule still doesn’t apply even with candy.

Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Come to the Dark Side

Come to the Dark Side

Good evening FabFree. I hope your isolation is going better than mine. I think I may be going stir crazy. But we solider on, right?

Walk on the Dark Side

I popped over to the Dark Side event today. There are tons of great designers all letting their dark sides run free. If you’re looking for witchy and eerie… this is the place! Plus most of the venders have put out a deeply discounted gift for us!

My new little chilling frock is the 10L gift from WitchCraft. I am so in love with the lace and ruffles. Sort of LolliGoth! The Jasmine dress comes with a HUD for six color changes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Seeing Stars

My nifty new boots are from the Dark Side Event as well. Just 10L will net you these starry sky boots from Grumble. They have a cute little peep toe so make sure your toes are polished up because you’ll want to wear these everywhere.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Dark Side event runs until April 30 so hurry over, my dears.

All About the Boots

All About the Boots

It’s true, sometimes it’s all about the boots, and maybe the pumpkins too. At least that holds true for this post. Eudora has a detailed pair of ankle boots as their latest group gift, and they are so worth the effort. With Halloween afoot I couldn’t help but be a little festive. I happened on these free pumpkins at Boutique 187. Keep reading for more details about each of these fall freebies, or scroll to the end for full credits with links. Happy Halloween Fab Free!

Eudora

Right now at Eudora you can pick up these super cute boots for free with the Eudora group tag. There is a one time join fee of 50 linden for the Eudora group. These boots come with a color change hud that let you pick between black or brown for the main part of the boot, and a few options for the bottom of the shoe, the heel, and even the metal bits.

Size Included: Maitreya

Boutique 187

Boutique 187 has some fun Halloween themed freebies out, including these decorative pumpkins. No group is needed for this free gift, however I’d hurry if you want them. They may not be available much longer.

A Bit of Light Exercise

A Bit of Light Exercise

Nothing like a bit of light exercise to round out Friday.  Or  you know, a bit of light posing on a tennis court is just as good, right???

Witchy!

This tank top that says “undead glamour” on it is just what the doctor ordered for the season of creepiness.  It’s the free hunt offering by WitchCraft over at The Dark Style Fair.  Look all over the sim and collect the gifts inside the orange and black boxes, because there are a lot of fun finds!  I was partial to this cute top that comes with an HUD to change to six different colours.

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

Who Wears Bike Shorts?  I do!

These very nice and form fitting shorts are the latest group gift from Cynful!  I joined their group for FREE, and then clicked on the gift vendor which is near the back of the store.  It comes with an HUD to change to loads of different colours so you can pretty much match these to anything you’ve got!  A great casual find!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Have a great weekend Fab Free!

The Andore group is just 75 linden to join, and there are multiple gifts available. Have fun Fab Free!

I Like You a Latte


I Like You a Latte

Sometimes there’s no place I’d rather be than settled into a comfy spot enjoying the crisp autumn air (assuming it ever reaches my part of the world hah) and a nice hot spiced latte. Especially when my latte is just as happy to see me as I am to drink it! My happy-faced latte is the September group gift at Andika. The dress I have on is a group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by Revelation. I hope you love these fabulous free finds as much as I do. From here either scroll down for the credits, or keep reading for a bit more information about each freebie.

Andika

I love a good latte, and the September group gift at Andika is the sweetest latte around. The gift includes 2 beautifully detailed latte cups with smiling froth faces. The Andika group is free to join, so these sweet lattes can bring some brightness to your fall décor for free. You’ll find them waiting at the Andika store, just wear your group tag and click the gift vendor.

andika [cafe Latte ]sept GG-AD
Revelation

The cute red dress I have on is a free group gift by Revelation available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. It’s a fairly short dress so I chose to pair it with some cute leggings. The dress comes in several sizes, and has a texture/color change hud with graphic and solid color options. The Fab Free group is free to join, so this casual dress is absolutely free. To make this gift easier to pick up I’ve included a photo of the gifts at Revelation. The Fab Free gift is the last gift on the right.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Here’s What I Have On:

  • Hair – Lamb. Stellar – Balayage Pack

Cheap Thrills


Sweet Sorcery

It probably is not a good idea to ask a witch if she can turn someone into a frog. She just might show you. It is however a good idea to ask me about the 12 linden gifts by Firelight and Nerdy Girl at the current round of Twe12ve. Most, if not all of the participating shops have a 12-linden item along with their event items and exclusives. I picked up the hair gift by Firelight and the clothing gift by Nerdy Girl. Keep reading for some info about each of these 12 linden finds, or scroll down for the credits. As for me, I’m gonna enjoy this frog!

Firelight

I really like this high ponytail hairstyle by Firelight. The long wispy bangs make me think of Bridget Bardot and that is never a bad thing. This hairstyle is the Firelight 12 linden gift at Twe12ve. It comes in 2 sizes and has a color change hud with the choice of either the dark brown shade shown, or a light brown shade. There’s no need to join a group to get this special price, just look for the little gift vendor at the Firelight stall at the Twe12ve event.

Nerdy Girl

The top by Nerdy Girl I’m wearing is also just 12 linden at Twe12ve. It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. This cute baby-doll style top has a color/texture change hud with 6 solid color choices, and 6 prints. Again, there’s no need for any group, just pay the gift vendor 12 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Phsique), Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here’s What I Have On:
