It’s beach weather somewhere!

Is it beach season yet_001

It’s beach weather somewhere right? And there are always beaches you can visit in Second Life when winter is getting you down! Thanks to a FabFree reader tip from Crimson, now you can have 12 free swimsuits to take to the beach with you! Read on to find out how!

If you go to Scandalize, you already know that joining the group for 100L will score you some great gifts like Aline showed you {here} and Love showed you {here}. In fact there’s a huge wall of group gifts to be had for that one small fee…

… but right now there is also an in-store Watermelon Hunt going on, no group required! It’s totally free! There are 12 little watermelons hidden around Scandalize and each one contains one of the swimsuits you see me wearing above, each watermelon is just holding one in a different color. You find the Watermelon and buy it for 0L and the swimsuit is yours, free!

While I was there I picked up a suit in grey, white (shown), aqua, and a pretty black and white zebra print. Of course there were eight more out there that I didn’t find because I got lazy and stopped looking ;P

But a girl can never have too many swimsuits, seriously!

Surf’s Up

Snapshot_008

I need a warm weather break…

I am already sick of the cold and snow and it isn’t even January yet. It’s time for some fun in the sun, even if it is virtually. I headed out to Mauna Lani Surfing Beach to catch a few waves and enjoy the sunshine and the surf. There was even a parrot perched on the lifeguard chair, but flew away before I could snap a shot. Just my luck…

Hanging Ten…

Today’s offering is a Mini Mania Board item from Emerald Couture. Every five clicks pays out the Blue Sea Beach Trunks, which come ins standard sizes XS-XL. There is also a board for women and lots of lucky chairs to win prizes too! It’s worth the stop to check out. My Aviator Shades are one of several FREE group gift on the wall at Rebellion. Accessorize yourself in style with the group gifts found here. The Rebellion group is FREE to join and there are also group lucky boards at the store to win prizes from. My surf pose is a gacha find from Le Poppycock. Hang Ten is one of the many poses in the Surf’s Up series and each can be had for just 50L a pull.

That’s my wave, brah. Later Dude!

Not a Cloud in the Skye

Listen to Your Heart
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday at last!  Here I am enjoying one final moment at the shore (Ripley is off chasing gulls) before the shopping and prep work for Thanksgiving begin.  It sure would be nice to spend the whole weekend here at NorderNey, curled up on the beach with a pile of books.  Someday, maybe!

A Hint of Pink in the Skye

My sweet swimwear from Just Ordinary features white hearts scattered across a pale pink background.  “Skye” features realistic folds in the fabric, and golden half circle closures on both the bikini top and swimsuit bottom.  I love the flared skirt, asymmetrical hemline, and the ties that dangle down my back.  To add this free group gift to your beach wear collection, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Just Ordinary group tag (it’s completely free to join), and tap the group gift vendor.  This package offers something for everyone – from classic mesh, to fit mesh and versions for popular mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

Off to Save Some Birds

The poor seagulls……  The pupster has been having the time of his life chasing them up and down the surf while I tried to capture the perfect picture.  One feathered fellow just caught my eye, and I could tell he was getting pretty fed up with Rip’s antics.  It’s time for mission “Gull Rescue” to swing into operation.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Kat is wearing…

Summer’s Last Sunset

Summer's Last Sunset

A Sad Farewell…

As we say goodbye to summer (Goodbye summer, we will miss you.) and move into fall (Hi fall, how are you?), I reflect back on the summer of ’17. I’m glad it’s past but I am going to miss the warm days, the summer breeze,  and the sun setting later in the evening.

A Gift to be Happy About…

I’ve slipped out of my skin today and into a new FREE Mesh Avatar from ExMachina. If you are wanting to experiment with a mesh avatar or have a newbie friend, this would be a good starter for them. The best part, the group is FREE to join. I’m also wearing a pair of Swimsuit Shorts by !BBN! that is free to members of the Menstuff group. The group has a one time join fee of 50L but there are several gifts on the wall to make the lindens worth it.

♫ Though we gotta say goodbye, to the summer
Baby I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss  ♫

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

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

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass) / Maitreya Lara / Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Moon Child

Lunar Obsession
If you haven’t been by The Coven Lunar Festival yet, you should go if for no other reason than to enjoy the delightfully spook atmosphere, and oh yeah, tons of FREE gifts! There is some stellar shopping available as well, but this is a FREEbie blog, so I’ll try to stay focused. lol At the landing point for The Coven you’ll see a group joiner, you’ll want to join the FREE group for The Coven so you can snag all the free witchy goth goodness. Once you’re wearing The Coven group tag, you can click on the little cauldrons with glowing purple contents at each of the participating vendor booths. I picked up quite a few gifts, and it was hard to narrow things down to a few favorites. The gifts range from clothing and accessories to decor.

Boho Suit

The sexy mono-kini is a The Coven event group gift from Nightmare. This mesh swimwear fits like a glove, and has a truly unique style in the back. You’ll have to pick this FREE gift up for yourself to see what I mean. I think it’s cute on it’s own, however it would also look cute with a pair of shorts or a long skirt.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Chloe

I love this long hairstyle by Vallani. Named Chloe, the hairstyle is Vallani’s FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. This gift includes the single hairstyle with a color change hud. There are quite a few color options including mostly “natural” red, white, blond, brunette, and black variations. There is a highlight texture, and a soft texture option for each of the colors. The one thing that makes this hud a bit different from most is there is a tinting option that allows you to pick a hair color then tint it any color you want. The possibilities are endless!

The Cyanide Mini Series

The pose used in the above photo is part of the gift at The Coven event by An Lar. This static pose is part of a set called the Cyanide Mini Series which comes with three individual poses and their mirrors for six total static poses. As a blogger and a photographer I am always excited about awesome FREE pose gifts! This particular pose is the second in the series, and my favorite of the three.
Moon Child

Onyx

This thin collar with the starburst dangle is the FREE gift at The Coven event from Kibitz. With this gift you’ll receive the choker/collar in black with the choice of either an onyx (shown), silver, or gold charm. There are no scripts in this jewelry, however it can be sized manually. It also has the added detail of a chain clasp in the back.

Moon Tie

Maybe it’s just me but I think mouthies might be making a comeback in Second Life. This cute FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival is by Peaches. There are a few variations of this thin ribbon with dangling moons included in this gift. You can choose either a black ribbon with silver moons or gold moons, or a white ribbon with silver or gold moons.

Moon & Star Bindi

Oubliette put out this cute crescent moon and star bindi as their FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. I love how delicate it looks. This simple yet pretty bindi has no scripts or huds, however you can adjust the size and color manually using the edit menu. Should you choose to edit this yourself, I highly suggest making a copy of it first just in case!

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Silver Sun

Silver Sun
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve got a couple of group gifts I’ve been dying to share with you. Technically one is a Lucky Letter board prize, but we will get into that in a moment. I don’t know about you, but I am of the personal opinion that sometimes being blonde is more fun.

QTPIE

Whether you’re in agreement about blonde hair or would rather have any other color, you’re in luck because this super cute hairstyle is a current fat-pack group gift from Love. That’s right, you get all the color huds the Love brand offers.  The Love main location is temporarily under construction, though the owner/designer says it shouldn’t be under construction for much longer. The good news is this FREE group gift is available in the group notices. The Love group is also FREE to join. Once you’ve joined the group (I was able to find it by searching “Love Hair”) you can pull up the past notices and snag your gift. Oh, and before I forget, this style called “QTPIE” can be worn with or without the long strands, and there is a rigged and non-rigged mesh version for easy resizing if needed.

Lucky in Silver

As I mentioned, the second group gift featured in this post is a Lucky Letter board prize for group members only. Right now Apple May Designs has this gorgeous silver bikini/lounge wear/whatever adorable thing as a FREE Lucky Letter board prize for all AMD group members. The Apple May Designs group is just 25 lindens to join at this time. There’s also a second Lucky Letter board with this same gorgeous gift in gold. I’m still stalking that one! This mesh set comes in several sizes, and is every bit as pretty as it looks. Don’t forget, you will need an AMD tag to participate with these group only Lucky Letter boards. Good Luck, and may the letters or numbers be ever in your favor!
