By the Sea

062322 - By the Sea 01

Some days I wish I lived by the ocean. I could take walks on the sandy beaches and ride my bike on the boardwalks. Maybe I could do some window shopping at the local boutiques and grab a drink at a cafe. But, I do not live by the ocean…so I do these things inworld instead.

Cheeky Monkey Hunts – ‘All the Colors’

For the month of June, Cheeky Monkey Hunts is running a super fun hunt called ‘All the Colors’. You can see details and hints on their website. The hunt runs until June 30th at 12pm SLT. Each participating designer has three choices of prizes they can set out: 1L, 25L or 50L. The 25L and 50L prizes are exclusive to the hunt. You can find the starting point here.

  • My necklace and earring set and the bicycle are available from Loredana Loring of Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop. The jewelry is unrigged with a resize script and the earrings have a script in them that allows the colors to swirl and move! The bicycle is so cute! It can be used as decor and you can also sit on it, as there are 12 PG poses in it…split between male and female. Both items are 25L exclusives.
  • The tank top comes in a set of three colors from Mikki McLain of The Bold Llama T-shirt Co. It is a 50L exclusive prize. The set includes this black, a blue and a burgundy shade. They fit the following mesh body sizes:
    • Belleza
    • Legacy
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Reborn
    • Slink
    • TMP
    • Tonic

A few more things…

I wanted to grab a few other things that are currently free or super cheap, to style the outfit with. Can I just say, I could be…am guilty of stuffing my inventory FULL of gifts from the Marketplace!

  • The summery shorts I paired with the tank top are only 10L on Marketplace from a store I found called Gifts Home. They include an HUD that allows you to choose from four different prints and they fit several mesh bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink
    • TMP
  • My cute little sneakers are only 1L on Marketplace, from MH Unique Design. You can change the colors with the included HUD on them as well, with 10 print options. And they fit the following bodies:
    • Belleza
    • Maitreya
    • Slink

Fruity

Fruity

Ah, summer, the season of fresh fruit. I’ve been exchanging unhealthy snacks with fruit lately and loving it. I think I may go grab a bowl of kiwis now actually, as my tummy is rumbling…

Mila

My pretty skin is the latest free group gift at MILA. It includes a Lelutka EvoX BOM skin in 2 tones, one light and one dark. The package includes matching ears skins and an eyebrow shape is also included. This is a no-brow skin, so I just added some brows using the Lelutka EvoX hud. The skin for the body is included, so no purchase is necessary to achieve this full look. It also includes a shape made for Lelutka Kaya and Legacy as well, but I am not currently wearing it. It is quite an amazing freebie if I do say so myself!

Heather

My “heather” top, bra and shorts are another sweet deal at Paper.Sparrow.  You can get each piece in black, grey or white for 35L each for the 35L Sunday Sales. The sale is still out to grab, so head over their ASAP to grab it. I love the shorts and they include an extensive texture change HUD that allows you to change the strings at the sides to different colours and patterns. What a sexy little outfit!

Sizes Included (top , bra & shorts)

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass

Moonlight

Finally, this is your last chance to grab the adorable “Moonlight” hair at Sintiklia, which is still out from last week’s Happy Weekend. This will roll over soon so you need to go now to get it. The hairstyle includes a style hud and two sets of bangs, and each pack costs 51L as long as you activate the free Sintiklia group tag. Remember to check out Cre’s post here which shows the other hair Sintiklia has out for sale at the moment.

Enjoy your summer fruit, FabFree!

Take Me Away

Take Me AwayI finally made it to Shop and Hop this weekend! I say finally but really it just started on the 16th and there’s still lots of time before it closes on July 5th. I think I’ve made it through 6 of the 20 regions (whose idea was TWENTY regions) and just whoa. This shopping and hopping takes stamina, y’all.

I’m sure you know the drill by now: 20 regions, free gift for Second Life’s 19th birthday in each booth as well as lots of great discounts, no group join required. Type “SL19B” up there on FabFree’s handy dandy search bar and you’ll see lots of great coverage already. Enough words, wanna see what I got? Okay!

Summer Baby

At first I thought this was a bikini. Then a sexy ruffly little summer outfit. And I’m still not really sure but I love it! It is the free SL19B gift from Entice which is located on the Hollyhock sim. It comes in this nice aqua shade (which I’d maybe call more of a seafoam, but I’m not the color police) with the top and bottom being separate pieces.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

P.S. The pose is from a super cute new free pack from Versuta, in case you’re into posing. It’s a free group gift, the group is free to join, and there’s a bunch of other older pose pack up on the wall with it as free group gifts too.

Love is Love

Love is Love
“Love is Love”. That is definitely my mantra in life. I have never understood why people persecute or judge others for who they love. It’s so wrong. I am bisexual, so Pride has a special meaning for me. Sometimes people think Pride is just a fun parade filled with rainbows, but it’s really about the resilience and persecution all LGBTQ+ people have gone through throughout history and continue to today in order to fight for their rights. Plus, it’s about how important it is to celebrate LGBTQ+ people and identities! Happy Pride everyone! 🏳️‍🌈

More WomenStuff

I have more free prizes from the WomenStuff hunt to show. Read all the details about the hunt in my post here. Cre also blogged some goodies from the hunt here and here. You can grab the hunt hud at the WomenStuff hunt starting location here (group join fee is 50Ls to get the hunt hud, but the prizes are free for all at each location).

  • My short shorts are the free prize from NoNuts. They fit Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Kupra, eBODY Reborn & Curvy, Legacy, Tonic Fine, Minimizer & Curvy, Hourglass & Altamura.
  • The cute shoes are free at Adore Amore. They come in the pink colour only with little white flowers on them. They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy, Tonic, Slink, & Ocasin.

You can also see a few more of the hunt prizes in my up-close shot below.

  • My eyeshadow, eyebrows, and lipstick are from a free HD makeup set from Noyaux. This set includes HD appliers for Lelutka Evolution and Lelutka EvoX.
  • The gold face paint on my forehead is from {Wren’s Nest}. They have 10 planet signs included in the free pack. I just liked the look of Mercury so I went with it. The set includes 10 separate tattoos for Leltuka EvoX, AdvX and BOM.

The hunt is on until June 30th, so go get your hunt on!

Pride Flag!

Love is Love III
Lastly, I have an awesome pride flag/wall banner to show you. Noveny has this awesome pride flag out as their latest group gift. Their group currently costs 30L to join. The “Love is Love” messaging with the yellow hearts on it inspired my post tonight!

Happy Pride, FabFree!

Festival Vibes

Festival Vibes

I am totally ready for even more Summer vibes, FabFree.  You know, the kind that involve loud music, questionable food choices and possibly a ride or two.  I love the hippie-summer of love-sorta vibe going on right now, and I’m totally ready to eat potatoes that are inexplicably cut into a spiral shape.  What does that have to do with summer music festivals?  Absolutely nothing.  Read on!

Peace and Love

I almost plotzed right out of my seat (ha) when I saw that Alaskametro was participating in this month’s Free Dove Caring Hands Hunt.  You all know I love me some Alaskametro, and I will crow about it until forever.  Not only do we get their amazing makeup and nail polish this time around, but also some awesome clothing too.  I love every minute of it.  To take part, you’ll have to join The Free Dove group for free, then head to both The Free Dove and Alaskametro to find 5 prizes in each location.  You’re looking for festival passes.  You’ll see all the size info and other prizes (like skins and tattoos etc) in the ad below!  You’ve got until June 30th to grab them!

Summer Dreaming

Summer Dreams

Wearing this free sexy outfit from Lunar has me dreaming of summer.  As I stare out the window in RL with cloudy skies and chilly rain I can’t wait for the warm rays of the sun and all the fun activities that summer brings.  Especially our county fair which has been canceled the last two years but it’s finally back!!  I can just hear the delighted screams of people on the rides and the cries of the carnival barkers trying to get you to spend your money on games no one can win (maybe it’s just me).  The smells of all the wonderful food around each corner and none of it good for you.  Yep, I am totally ready, bring on The Summer!!!

Pin-Up Mood

Pin-Up Mood

Happy Saturday, FabFree!  I’m off to the beach to bask gloriously.  I’m feeling a bit pin-up today, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  Read on and I’ll get you the details on this fun look!

Watermelon Sugar

The latest group gift at Pink Cream Pie is really cute.  The top and shorts are really adorable and I love the ripped detailing.  You could use this as swimwear or as just a cute summer outfit (imagine playing beach volleyball in this!).  To get your own, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L, and then head upstairs to the VIP area to get it.  You’ll find a bunch of other gifts, lucky boards, and you also get 100L in store credit every single month, so a great group to get in and stay in!

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

No Mosquito Bites Here

Back to one of my faves, Mosquito’s Way!  They are consistently spoiling group members with amazing shoes.  This month’s gift are the lovely Natalie heels that are giving me that early 2000’s Sex and the City vibe, but with a little extra oomph.  They come in three different lovely colours you can change via HUD and they’re just super nice.  The Mosquito’s Way group is currently 50L to join, and there are a bunch of other gifts out for you to pick up while you’re there.

Show a Bit of Pride, Why Don’t Ya?

Pride@Home 2022

Hello again Fabulouses! Pride at Home/Second Pride opened today with a bang running until June 12th. Though on the surface it seems like a huge party it’s actually all about raising funds for IGLA -EUROPE & BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS. If you click either of these links you can read about the work of these organizations and you’ll quickly understand why this is a fundraiser.

There is still fun to be had with DJs, dancing, shopping, several sims to explore, and gifts. And don’t forget sharing the love regardless of your sexuality. Love is love after all.

Gifties!

I am wearing four of the event gifts:

Free *NeverWish* Pride Glitter Heart Top for HG, Legacy/Petite, Kupra, Maitreya/Petite, Reborn

Here comes Pride!  It’s all about being who you really are, now isn’t it? Here’s to everyone in the LGBTQQIP2SAA+ community, may the month of June be absolutely colourful.

At Home

Pride at Home is back this year, and filled with just as many hypercolour gifts as you can possibly bear (and I can bear A LOT).  There are so many amazing free gifts at their main sim that you’re sure to have fun opening up all the goodies to see what lies within.  I really enjoyed this year’s event, and noted that it’s even a bit bigger than the last two years!  Woohoo!  Happy Pride indeed!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top by Eleven sized for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Reborn
  • FREE shorts by Apple Blossom sized for Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE hair by KMH
  • FREE nails by Beaumore sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Reborn
  • FREE drink by 28LA

There really is a lot to take in, so make sure you stop by.  There’s no need to join a group to grab these items, they’re all completely free.

Be you!
