Getting Some Exercise Around the Grid

You Me and the Sea

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your July is going well.  Ripley and I had a great time camping up in the mountains.  Even though we came back to sizzling temperatures, it feels good to be home.  The pupster didn’t want to eat much while we were away, and I was worried he had lost weight.  He actually gained a pound, so we decided the best thing to do was to hit the hunt trail in SL to get some exercise.  That still counts as exercise, right? 😉

Around the Grid

As we traversed the SL universe, we stopped by Nuts Inc, and Ripley discovered the hot air balloon hunt icon fairly quickly.  One nice thing about the Around the Grid Hunt is if you are short on time, you can pay 25 Linden dollars for the prize, or invest a bit of energy and discover the hidden hunt object and pay just 1 Linden dollar.  Thankfully, with the pupster’s help, I paid a very budget-friendly 1 Linden dollar for this adorable Sari outfit.  I just love the combination of blue and rusty hues in both the top and skirt.  This little number features a cropped top with a tasseled hemline and a mini skirt with two slits to make moving around a breeze.  Although I chose not to wear them, the hunt prize also included sandals and a backpack.  This outfit is compatible with classic and mesh body avatars.  The hunt runs until September 30th, so you have plenty of time to uncover some fabulous prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for skirt and top)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

Beach Hair

My short windswept locks are perfect for a day at the beach.  I picked this new hairstyle up for free as a group gift from Barberyumyum.  It comes only in this sun-kissed blonde color, but I just love it!  With the enclosed HUD, you can adjust the size of the hair to get just the right fit.  The folder includes rigged and non-rigged versions as well as an alpha layer for your scalp.  To add this free gift to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Double Paradox group, but it’s completely free to join.  There are five other gifts set out for group members, too.

Until my next post, happy hunting!

If anyone needs me, I’ll be on the beach building sand castles

FabFree: If anyone needs me, I'll be on the beach building sand castles

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  Previously on FabFree, we have seen Juli and Pru blog a couple of the prizes for the 9th Annual Beached Bunny Hunt, and I am returning to show off yet another one, that I thought was really cute.

A little about the hunt…

I am a bit of a cherry picker when it comes to hunts, and love when organizers put up a whole preview of what the prizes are before you take the time to go hunt them down (especially if there is a whole linden involved!!)  The Beached Bunny Hunt does have a prize preview along with hints and a graphic example of the hunt icon you are searching for (which is a blue sand bucket btw!)

Hopes Creations For The Beached Bunny Hunt 9

At Hopes Creations when you hunt down the blue sand bucket for the hunt and pay it 1L, you’ll have the Imogen Shorts in several mesh body sizes as well as a texture HUD that allows for three sweet summery prints.  I am displaying the white pair with a fun beachy print, but the other two are just as cute!!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy

Madcap Florals

Madcap Florals

I have an undying love of all things covered in flowers.  I know I’ve harped on about this before, but let me just quickly natter at you about the magic of Liberty of London.  The store, located in London, England,  is absolutely the most amazing place you’ll ever go.  It’s found in a faux-tudor building, with wood everywhere, Turkish rugs hanging over the balustrades and flowered fabric just about everywhere.  It’s like being in a little magical bazaar, or perhaps in the residence of some really chic, rich and unique relative that you secretly want to be just like.  But, as per usual, I digress.

Liberty of Belle Epoque

I’m nattering about Liberty of London, because the print on the newest group gift at Belle Epoque is making me think of the great ditsy florals that Liberty is known for.  This pretty dress is sized for Maitreya bodies and you can grab it by joining the Belle Epoque group for just 10 Lindens.  I call that a deal!

Ok, I think that’s enough waffling at you for now!

Catch y’all soon!

Watercolors

Watercolors

One of the things I love about Second Life… or more specifically, my Second Life wardrobe…. is I can have all kinds of styles. I can go from Goth to 80’s to Medieval to club wear… to elegant and ladylike with the press of a button. Which brings me to today’s post. 😉

Watercolor Pretty

This is the demure and lovely “Nelly Dress” from Hilly Haalan and it is the latest Group gift. I love the soft watercolor floral and the prim nipped in waist. If you zoom in, you can see the gauzy texture on the top which makes it just perfect for Summer. You get two pretty choices in your gift. This one in mostly lavenders and purple and a second one in pinks and cream. Just join the free Hilly Haalan Group and you can help yourself to this refined addition to your closet.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Sapphire Moonlight, We danced for hours in the sand

FabFree: Sapphire Moonlight, We danced for hours in the sand

Happy Weekend Fabulouses!  Today in my blog post, I am featuring Nerido’s Kate Gacha Set at Epiphany.

I ♥ Nerido’s Gacha Sets!

I loooove Nerido’s Gacha Sets, because usually you can put together a whole outfit with commons and minimal pieces, so it doesn’t wind up costing you a fortune to play for it.  I am wearing all commons today – The Kate Dress (#7), String (#25) and Shoes (#15) in Indigo.  Another exciting tidbit about this set?  It’s available fitted for Maitreya AND LEGACY!

Have fun!
