Summer Evening Breezes Blew ~ The Aloha Fair Pt 3

Hello everyone! Its the end of another week again and I hope you are all doing well. Here is another installment of The Aloha Fair and today I am concentrating on some of the swimwear you can find at the event. For the last two installments, be sure to check here and here!

Aloha 3

There are some really really amazing dollarbies and freebies here, so I very much hope you are all taking the opportunity to come and take a look around! If you are wanting some great shoes for your SLinks then the Detroit Shoes made for SLink High Feet by Essenz are a really amazing find and are the perfect summer slingback. I’ve teamed it the really colourful and fun Aloha Bikini by Beautiful Dirty Rich. One must have for when you are on the beach is a fan to keep you cool and the Aloha Fan by Dyer Maker will definately do that.. all I need now is a willing participant who will stand and fan me while I relax in the sun ~laughs~

I am sure you will find a bikini you will love. If you are looking for something a little more daring then the Skimpy Bikini by OSITO could be the one for you with its pretty floral pattern. Or for a little more coverage, then you could try the Hawaiian Print Bikini by Rir Designs in its classic design. Finally if you want a little bit of bling when you are out on the beach then try the Chained Bikini by Ch’s on for size! This also comes with appliers for Lola, Phat Azz, WowMeh and SLink!

There are some really great accessories here also. I have already shown you the Hanalei Ring by Bliensen & MaiTai in purple, so today I am showing you the pink version! The gorgeous Flower Garland is by Legal Insanity and really was made to match the pink Hanalei Ring so well! My Gold Hoop Earrings w/ Seahorses are by Grumble. They are so cute!

The beautiful skin I am wearing is called Nima and is by Lumae. You can be find it in their Gacha machine at the event, available in two tones and seven make ups for each tone to try for. The nails that I am wearing are also by Lumae and is a freebie that also includes some modifyable female shapes! Below is the HUD so you can see all the colours available!

A quick note about the Gachas.. there are two seperate areas made especially for all the gachas at the event so be sure to look for those!

We Burst Into Colours And Carousels – Aloha Fair pt2

Im back again with more from The Aloha Fair! You can see Part 1 here and there will be more posts to come over the next few days so be sure to stay tuned! The event runs until August 11th so be sure to stop by for some summer sunshine to brighten your days!

Here are some more great dollarbies and freebies that you can find from the very generous and amazing designers at the fair and Im not even half way done yet! There really is so much to see here so be sure to come back again for more coverage.

I really love the Aloha Necklace by Candy Nail that adds a colourful punch to any outfit. The Blue Earrings by Emporium matches the blue in the necklace really well so they are a great combination to pep up the darker colours in my outfit. The gorgeous lace Aloha Top by NerdMonkey is a great choice to cool down in when off to the coffee shop to catch up with friends and the You & Me Jeans by VooDoo Dolls gives the right amount of casual charm. I adore the little Hanalei Ring by Bliensen & MaiTai which comes in several colours besides the pinky colour I am wearing. Not forgetting the really cute little MintSalmon Clutch by Vertice and the Blue Leopard Heels by BElieve to complete the look!

The gorgeous skin I am wearing is called Didy and is by WoW Skins. Included are the appliers for SLink, plus Lola and Lush mesh breasts. You also get two cleavage options and a shape (though I am wearing my own shape in the pictures). You can also see the Aloha Necklace by Candy Nail in much better detail. Isnt it cute! I love the watermelon accents!

Im off to get that well deserved coffee! Have a great day everyone!

Do You Want To Go To Hawaii? – Aloha Fair pt 1

The Aloha Fair has started and is a celebration of all that is summer and sunshine! It runs until August 11th so there is plenty of time to come and soak up the tropical atmosphere and snap up some great bargains and exclusive items!

You can also find a whole host of freebies and dollarbies as well as two gacha areas and bazaar areas where there are huge discounts on amazing items! In the next series of posts from myself, I will be showing you the freebies and dollarbies you can find at the event. To find these, you are looking for a brightly coloured surfboard that will be either inside or propped outside each store.

I have included LM’s to each individual booth, but it is landing point locked at the event so you will land at the main landing point. Hopefully each LM below will show a red beacon on your map so you can find the item by following that!

Aloha

For a tropical splash of colour, you can’t go wrong with the Niokolo Maxi Dress by ArisAris and I can carry all the things I need for my day on the beach with the Aloha Tote Bag by DEW. Eye protection from the summer sun is also a must so the Black Shore Glasses by HollyHood are stylish and perfect for the job! My black slingbacks by Snob are probably not the best things to walk in the sand with but for wandering along the promenade they are great!

Aloha

The gorgeous Alana skin is by Poudre and comes in several different tones with two cleavage options. I will be showing more of these tones during the next few posts! I love wearing flowers in my hair, so the beautiful Hibiscus hair accessory by Delirium Style adds the perfect finishing touch!

Hello all you Fab Free lovies! Today I just had to show this too adorable dress. I have really grown to love the color yellow. I didn’t always, but I think that is partly because I don’t wear it well in RL. One more thing to love about Second Life, I can wear any color well. :D This pretty little dress from Statement is fully Mesh and comes in standard sizes. I think the skinny belt detail is what makes this dress really stand out. The dress is also available in several colors and stripes. Currently, the store is having a 20% off sale! I have no idea how long the sale will last, so don’t miss out! To go with my sweet new dress, I picked up a few items by {ZOZ}. Currently they are participating in a few events, so you can get some awesome products at a really great price. My manicure and pedicure are the {ZOZ} contribution to the current round of Designer Showcase. Additionally I went to the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and picked up these pretty floral print heels, also by {ZOZ}. Now I’m ready to meet up with the girls for a little coffee and gossip!

I Am Doll Parts

I used to be a collector of BJD’s or Ball Jointed Dolls, so being able to be one in SL has always thrilled me ever since COCO Designs created the BJD Avatar in SL a little while ago. So you can imagine my excitement when I recieved word that they had released a free fatpack of doll heads to wear with the doll body! I ran over as fast as my little ball jointed legs could carry me so I could show them to you!

I Fake It So Real I Am Beyond Fake

In these two pictures I am wearing the Anna head. Above is how the whole doll looks, complete with the body that you can buy seperately. The Red Slip Dress worn in the picture is also by COCO Designs and is another freebie that they have made for the Doll Avatar!

Don’t you just adore this cute little kitty? He is made by The Mint Condition and if you want one of your very own, then be sure to visit Gacha Mania to play their gacha machine! Talking of gachas, my Cookie Necklace is by Spellbound and can be found in one of their in store gacha machines!

Here is a complete run down of the Doll Heads you can find in the fatpack from COCO Designs!

And while you are there, don’t forget to pick up the other piece of clothing that is set as a Group Gift which is free Kimono for your Ball Jointed Doll!

I adore how it comes with its own hands and feet with the Geta already attached, which makes it so easy to turn into a little Geisha Doll. The head I am wearing in this picture is also from the free box of doll heads and is called Kyoko!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Trampoline fun quickie…Woohoo!

So, this Is going to be the quickest quickie ever, because as far as I can tell, you only have until midnight tonight to grab the most fun pose prop ever!

Trampoline1

This is the Trampoline Fun pose prop from Something New Poses, and it is all yours for only L$10 if you run your little booties down to the final hours of the Boys VS Girls Cart Sale. There are 5 different, super fun poses built into this baby. The sale started July 12, but I only just found it today, and despite the super small time window left to grab the trampoline, I had to show it to you. If there is time, take a look at all the other booths too, as each of them have at least 1 L$10 item for sale, and some even have a freebie.

Trampoline2

OK, I really hope you make it before everything shuts down. I promise, next post won’t be such a nail biter in terms of time available :P Until then, TTFN!

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – July “O’Canada”

I have to admit, it took me quite awhile to come up with my submission for the Monthly Photo Challenge, especially as I had already done a post to celebrate Canada Day at the beginning of the month, wearing my country’s colours. Oh sure, I could have submitted one of those pictures, but I wanted to do some pictures specifically for the challenge. So here it is.

PhotoChallengeJuly1

So, this oh-so-sexy halter dress was a find on the Marketplace! I typed in ‘red white dress’, LOL, and this was one of the many items that popped up. The Furry Circle Halter Dress is from LA VITA, and is a great buy at only L$1. It is mesh, coming in 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, and it fits like a dream. There is an in-world store HERE if you like the more hands on approach of shopping, and the Halter Dress is still, only L$1 there as well.

PhotoChallengeJuly2

Sunglasses were a must, in this sunny coastal setting,  and the [ bubble ] Star Me Up White Glasses fit the bill perfectly. These adorable sunglasses are available right now, in a gacha at the Candy Shop event, and are only L$50 a play. Each pair comes with a HUD that allows you change the colour of the lenses, and there is a chance at winning the full fatpack. I’ve included a photo of the board so you can see all the colours you have a chance at winning.

Heart Glasses Gacha AD

PhotoChallengeJuly3

Elephante poses recently released a second July group gift, free for their VIP group members, which is a set of 6 static poses called Ember. There is a L$300 join fee for this group, but if you are a pose junky, like I am, then it is more than worth it As I said, this is the second July group gift released, and the first is still available as well, and you also get a 15% credit with every purchase made in store with your group tag on. If you do not have the group space, don’t fret, there is a subscribo available, which also has a little giftie available for July.  So either way, you win!

OK lovelies, that is it for me, for now…but I have more I want to show you, so, until then, TTFN!!
