The Delights of Summer

The Delights of Summer

I am so ready to head out into the sunshine for fun this August.  It may involve popsicles, coffee with friends, or a nip over to the neighbourhood pool to see who’s hanging out!  Whatever it may be, I’m ready for some good old fashioned fun!

Top it Off

My cute top is the newest group gift over at Quinnty’s!  I highly enjoy the little beaded fringe that hangs down, don’t you? It comes with a fairly extensive HUD with different texture options for the top, which you can make work with all sorts of different bottoms.  To get yours, just join the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you promptly.

Sizes

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

Through the Lens

I grabbed my fun little cat-eye esque shades over at Fetch!  Their newest group gift comes with a colour change HUD that will let you match your shades to your look!  Just join their group for 50L and you’ll find a bunch of other gifts to keep you happy.

Hope you’re out there having some fun!

Before the Rain



Before the Rain

As we all know by now I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Medieval Fantasy Hunt items. While wearing the free MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia, I felt transported, inspired by another time and place. I’m pleased my guy was willing to participate and help me capture this moment while showing off the male MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia. I considered writing a little narrative to go with this photo, but I’ll leave that to your imagination and just tell you about the freebies

Kimonos! There’s something majestic about a kimono in my opinion. These gorgeous his and hers matching kimonos are the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize at Secrets of Gaia. I love all the attention to detail in them. The women’s kimono includes matching flats, and hand fans (not shown) and the men’s gift includes the kimono only. 

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

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL) + Alpha Layer 

Hunt Hint: Let me check you out. (The male gift and the female gift are hidden together.)

Incognito Pink

Incognito Pink

I know the other Ladies of the Fab been showing y’all a bunch of the birthday gifts from Uber and, of course, I had to jump in too! The lag on the Sim is getting better, but I still recommend one of the cam shopping spots. Be sure to take a look at the exclusive items being offered at many of the venders while you’re scooping up your gifts. There are some seriously sweet clothes and accessories and home decor for sale. Much to the despair of my wallet. 😉

Pretty in Pink

Let’s start at the top with the gifts I’ve got today. This is the “Hazel” cap and hair from Mina available at Uber. The cute hair comes with a styling HUD for bangs, no bangs, some bangs, etc. The only color is this soft “pastel red” (isn’t that…pink?)  But I love the color!

Next is my lovely, free spirit necklace from LaPoint andBastchild. The “BoHo Necklace” comes with it’s own HUD to change the color of the beads, the drops and the metals! I see this pretty necklace getting a lot of use from me. There is also a gift set of earrings to match.

Last but certainly not least, is my lacey little top. This is the “Flick” top from a new to me designer: Neve. Thank you, Uber for introducing us! This build is really nice and the texture is super well done. You get a HUD for sixteen choices of colors and patterns. Plus, a choice to make the lace at the bottom into a solid ruffle. I’m absolutely going to check out their main store if this is what we can expect in quality!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

You have until August 22nd to enjoy the party over at Uber!

By the Beautiful Sea

By the Beautiful Sea

We’re back at the beach!  The best thing about SL beaches is the lack of wasps.  Well, I mean, there are other good things too, but right now I’m going to rail against the wasps.  Can’t go anywhere right now without being surrounded by little terrifying buzzy things that want to investigate your ham sandwich with a vengeance.  But anyway, I digress.  Just get to the freebies, Aline!

Uber it Up!

I told you the other day about all the awesomeness you can grab over at Uber, and there’s so much more to check out.  I won’t blather too much about it all, but remember you don’t need to join a group, just click on all the gifts to grab em!  Here’s what I’m showing ya!

  • FREE bathing suit by Breezy sized for Freya, Isis and Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Mangula sized for Ebody Curvy, Maitreya and Hourglass
  • FREE earrings by Enchante’

Love it.  And not a wasp in sight.

Pieces of a Puzzle

Pieces of a Puzzle

Have I ever mentioned how much I love going to events inworld when there are gifts and trying to put together an outfit?  Sometimes it comes out better than others.  I mean, I went to an event once and all I got was a kettle and a ball of string, so not much of an outfit there.  However, some events are so good with their gifts that you end up having a hard time deciding what to wear!  This month’s birthday round of Uber is one of those ones, I’m happy to report!  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Top by Mimikri Sized for Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique
  • FREE Skirt by Vive Nine Sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya and Legacy in several different colours
  • FREE Glasses by Nanika
  • FREE Pose by Foxcity (comes with 7 poses and their mirrors)

I picked up all these gifts without even having to join a group, most you just pay 0L for, which is always nice.  It may take you a while to get into the event, so keep at it and you’re sure to get there soon.  Don’t forget to try both Cam Shopping sims too HERE and HERE.

There’s so much more for you to get creative with at Uber, and I’d love to see what you come up with – just post it in our Flickr group!

Enjoy!

Steam it up

Steam it up

Happy Saturday, FabFolks! Thank heavens we made it to the weekend! It’s time to play and for me that means on the Grid. And one of my favorite things to RP is Steampunk. I love the clothes, the aesthetic, the … well, everything!

Steamy

The Rack @ Steaming Ahead is feeding my Victorian obsession today with their free gift for the Third Life Group. This is the “Toreador Jacket” and the members of the Third Life Group can pick it up for free when you wear your tag. The Third Life Group is only 10L to join and it’s Linden well spent. While you’re at Steaming Ahead, check out all the Hunts and the great Steampunk items.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL

Topping it off

Since I was feeling all punkish, I figured my hair should get steamed too. I went through my hair collection and figured I’d just pop on some goggles and call it good. Then I thought, “Check the Marketplace?” And I scored with this great monocle and top hat hair style from EMO-tions (Marketplace) for only five little Lindens; “Mono.” It is an older building style but you do get the full fatpack. Plus, each piece of the style is wearable separately. So if the hair doesn’t tickle you, you can wear just the monocle or just the hat.

Beat the Heat


Beat the Heat

The Beached Bunny Hunt ends in just a few days. With that in mind I suggest heading over to Sevyn East and finding their little blue sand bucket before it’s gone. The BBH prize at Sevyn East is the perfect beachy set to beat the summer heat. The BBH prizes are just 1 linden, and this one includes the ruffled bikini I’m wearing and the transparent pink tote bag. The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

  • Bikini Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

What I’m Wearing:

  • Hair – [DUE] Michelle
    Head – Catwa Koura
    Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
    Sunglasses – [Fetch] Miranda Sunglasses
    Swimsuit & Tote – Sevyn East – Erica Set – 1L BBH Prize
    Tattoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted

Here Kitty Kitty

Here Kitty Kitty

Oh hey there Fab Free!  I took a few days off to enjoy the searing heat of this summer, but I did see some pretty things and enjoy myself while I was melting like an Aline-sicle in the 39 degrees Celsius temps.  Whatevs, I’m back on the deal-finding train right now, which took me to a place I’ve always dreamed of – the land of cat-themed clothes!  Happiness!

Meowketplace

We are all well versed in the magic of SL Marketplace.  You type a few words in and you’ll find all your heart desires, in varying degrees of affordability.  That’s how I came across Sugarplum Boutique, while looking for random stuff.  They have a whole bunch of very affordable pieces in their MP store, and I fell in love with the Meow Dress (50 Lindens – comes in sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer, as well as a white version included)  and Cat Headband (20 Lindens).  The shop is crammed full of cuteness, so make sure you check them out!

See you kittens later!

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!

Floating Away

Floating Away

Well, my RL vacation is about to commence, so SL me is heading to the beach and looking at me wistfully.  But she can bat her baby greens at me all she likes, she gets to lead a life of leisure every day!  Oh, but don’t you fret my little bloggy friends, I’ll be around when I’ve got a few minutes to sniff out freebies and fun stuff for you while I’m away.  You can’t get rid of me that easily!

More Punk!

While I was at Punk JUSTUS the other day, I came upon some more great freebies on the main store counter.  A bunch of cool gifts that are completely free, no group join required.   This cute two piece bathing suit tickled my fancy so I picked it up and now I’m doing all the things in the water!  Wheeeee!

Be a Star

There’s a fun little hunt going on at the Japan Canvas Sim right now celebrating the star festival!  I found this cute floatie there by KOPI which I picked up for free just by finding the little balloon-like stars all around the sim.  The sim is pretty fun to explore on different levels, with stairs all over and hanging bridges and all sorts.  What will you find there?

See you on the flipside!
