Tiki Heat

Tiki Heat 1

I can tell things are heating up for the summer… as there are a lot of summer related hunts and group gifts popping up — like this fantastic palm and tiki inspired bathing suit called “Pamila” that is the current SL Frees & Offers group gift at Darling Haute Couture. If you stop by the main-store and don your group tag (the group is FREE to join), this colorful mesh swim suit in all the standard sizes is yours FREE!

Tiki Heat 2

I really enjoy dressing my outfits up a little, so as usual I looked for some jewelry… and I found an adorable FREEBIE! My Lucky Tiki necklace that I am wearing is one of three tiki necklaces you will get from Crev if you take a peek at their marketplace link. This necklace is transfer only, but it’s high quality and FREE! I’m thrilled!

I also donned a bit of blue lipstick courtesy of alaskametro<3, as they are offering a FREE tester of their Heat matte lipsticks on the Marketplace as well.  You’ll get a system layer lipstick as well as appliers for TMP, EVE’olution, Lelutka, Loudmouth, Nyam, Omega, and SLink… all in this bodacious blue. If you love it enough to buy the full version you can get that [here] and it will only set you back 75L.

I did splurge a bit on my eyeshadow, as I really fell in love with alaskametro<3‘s Creme Duo eyeshadow appliers. Again, you get all the above mentioned head appliers, plus a system layer. The full palette of colors is only 75L if you decide to dive in. If you want to test it out first, you can get a FREE tester [here] first.:)

Seas the day

Hello FabFree-ers!

Seas the day

I’ve resisted disappearing to the beach for weeks now… but I can’t hold out any longer! Especially not when the Surf into Summer Hunt has such great items tempting me.  Precast Inc has supplied my stripy towel for the Hunt and it comes loaded with four animated poses. The details on the fabric are really well done and the poses are sexy without being overdone, if you know what I mean.   I’m leaving the smexy to this cute bikini from Perfect Seduction. The Sis Bikini comes in the standard mesh sizes from S-XL and has a good alpha layer. I just love the sassy fringe on the bandeau top!

The 1L Surf into Summer Hunt runs until June 21 so you’ve got plenty of time to lounge around in the sand!

Give Me Chocolate

Give Me Chocolate

If all the group gift swimsuits are any indication of the upcoming season, then summer is definitely approaching! In April, I showed you the group gift at Paisley Daisy, which was a lovely formal gown. This month, Paisley Daisy, is treating us with chocolate! That’s right! This beautiful mesh swimsuit, in all the standard sizes, called Seaside Chocolate Leather is the FREE May group gift to group members.

You’ll need to wear your group tag, which is 100L to join, but remember, you’ll be getting monthly group gifts that are just as lovely as this one!:)

It’s Gonna be a ShuShu Summer

ShuShu SwimsuitHi There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ve all been having a fantastic week. My week just got a lot better, I found some gorgeous new swimwear at  ShuShu that’s completely FREE. Now I have an excuse to spend the weekend at the beach! As if I really needed an excuse.

The first, one pictured above, is a one piece swimsuit but the design makes it appear a lot like a bikini. It is my personal favorite of the two because of the black and white design and cute ties at the hips. This swimsuit from  ShuShu is completely FREE, just click to “pay” the vendor 0 lindens. This gift doesn’t need a group either, so anyone can pick it up. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer for non-mesh avatars.
ShuShu Bikini

The second FREE swimsuit at  ShuShu is this pretty bright magenta colored bikini with a sort of disco style draped top.  Like the other swimsuit this one is also fully mesh and comes with alpha layers. I was honestly pleasantly surprised at how well the bikini fit. I will mention however that both swimsuits are very low cut on the bottom, so just be aware of that. I think both swimsuits are serious head-turners! There’s also an equally cute group only bikini gift at  ShuShu that I’m not showing, you’ll find it in the same area as these freebies.

To get one or both (and considering they are free, why not both?!) swimsuits, head over to  ShuShu and look for the room full of swimwear, just in case the direct teleport doesn’t work out.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Shiny Shabby Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach

Hello Fab Free, I hope everyone enjoyed a little extra February! I had a nice long weekend, and while it was fun, I’m glad to be back with a few more Shiny Shabby gifts to show you. The Shiny Shabby event ends March 10th, so you’ve got a little over a week to pick up the wonderful anniversary gifts and do a little shopping. There are so many great gifts to be had, it would be quite a task to show them all! I will include some additional links to the other Shiny Shabby blog posts from the Fab Free Team at the end of this post, just in case you missed them.

When Love first told me about the Shiny Shabby gift from Dead Dollz, I knew it was for me! It’s true, she knows my style and how much I love the chance to show some flirty fun pin-up clothing. This cute ruffled and polka-dotted bikini just screams pin-up. As with all the Shiny Shabby gifts, this cute mesh bikini is completely FREE, just stop by the Dead Dollz booth and pick it up. The gift includes the mesh top and bottom only, fitted specifically for the Maitreya Lara body.

Speaking of pin-up style, the Shiny Shabby gift from Elikatira is just that! The blunt bangs are one of the definitive pin-up hair styles. The high pony-tail just adds even more flirtatiousness to the look. I love it! This gift includes an exclusive color change hud with several options from the basic colors to some fun ombres. There’s sure to be something for everyone. Not to mention, the gift is FREE at Shiny Shabby, so you really can’t go wrong! I included a photo of the back of this hairstyle because I love the cute little curl in the back. It’s so sweet and girly, and one of those little details that makes this hairstyle from Elikatira special.

Finally, this pretty yellow peony is the Shiny Shabby gift from Lode. Peonies are my absolute favorite flower, so I had to show this one. The details are just gorgeous, as I have come to expect with items from Lode. This pretty single flower can be re-sized by clicking the flower. I think it is so pretty, I intend to have it sitting on one of the tables in my home once I’m done carrying it around! lol Yellow is such a great color for spring as well, so don’t miss this gift from Lode at Shiny Shabby.

Hipster Stix

Hipster Stix

I feel like I’ve been away too long, it’s amazing what a busy few days in RL will do to your SL! That said I do have some awesome items I want to share with you, so I won’t waste time with chit chat. Stix recently put out a brand new group gift, and you’re gonna love it! It’s a pretty pale skin with fuchsia lips and dramatic eye-shadow that made me instantly think of the dark yet cute pastel goth style. This generous group gift from Stix includes the base skins with all the brow and bust options, as well as appliers for just about everything under the sun from mesh heads to bodies. At this time the Stix (PixyStix) group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift absolutely FREE.

Next up, the Hipster Fair has started and as always there are some great finds. This heather grey colored swimsuit and shorts combo is a 75 linden find at the Hipster Fair from Lushish Catz. Grey is such an in color right now, I’d say it’s the new black, but we all know how that goes! This is an applier outfit with appliers for Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink Physique/Hourglass, Belleza, Lena, Lolas Tango, Phat Azz, and Omega, but it also includes system layers. The swimsuit can be worn without the shorts as well.

Also at the Hipster Fair, Indulge Temptation has out a cute set of triangle rings for one linden. Just swing by the Indulge Temptation booth at the Hipster Fair and pick them up. The rings include a set for the right hand and the left hand, with a small or large triangle. I did have to adjust them some to fit my Maitreya hands, but the adjustment was easy to make. The dollarbie set also includes a color change/re-size hud so that you can adjust the metal of the rings and easily re-size them for a perfect fit.

Tats right!

SnapshotI am at the beach again and couldn’t resist some more swimwear. My sassy ruffled mesh bikini is from *Wicked* and is their FREE GG Lily with a FREE group join. I find a bikini gives an ample canvas of skin for tattoos. I found this feminine tattoo at Reckless it is call Joon ll and is a FREE GG  and the group is free to join. The month is almost up so the clock is ticking ladies. Snapshot

While at *Wicked* I noticed as they often are they are involved in a Hunt. This bright colored Blake mesh bathing suit is from The Heat is on Hunt. The hint is “Roses are red…” The hunt does have a 2L price tag but you do get 2 colors included, the other is yellow. This Hunt only runs til the 31st so you only have a few days left to snap it up. My hair is Winx and its packed with color huds from the Besom Lucky Letters boards which are FREE to play with your group tag. The group is FREE to join.

While enjoying the sun I got got a message from a store I had all but forgotten about JANE. They are back in business and have a small offering of items in the store. This cute top is their FREE subscriber gift called Lotsa Love. No group to join, just hit subscriber and then #1 in history and this cute top is all yours. You could pair it with shorts, pants or a skirt. This mesh top is packed full of different fits. You get fitmesh, slink, Laura, Isia, Freya and if that is not enough 2 color huds! The cute retro lunch box I am holding is actually the box is comes packed in but you could actually carry it around.

I’m beachy keen, thanks for asking!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I thought I’d show off a little beachy fun, as I realized that’s it’s been a few months since I did a post in a bathing suit! For shame!! Wasting all this lovely summer time without a good bikini photo shoot. Well, that is now remedied, let me show you what I got!

beachy1

The Groovy bikini, matching sarong, as well as jewelry that I am wearing, are all Marketplace L$1 promo’s from Iffyta, and are all texture change with provided HUD’s. For L$1, you get the mesh, 2 piece bikini, necklace and both bracelets, as well as a pair of shoes, which I am not wearing, HERE. For another L$1, you can get the matching sarong, HERE. All of these pieces come with an 8 choice texture HUD of super fun and colorful retro prints. I really had a hard time choosing which one to show off. If you love the texture choices, you will be interested to know, that there is a pair of stiletto ankle boots, and a fun little sun dress that are also in this Groovy line, and are both only L$1 as well! You just need to look at the bottom of the pages I linked, and you should see the links for the other items. Really, you should just check out the whole store page, as there are many other free and L$1 promo’s available, not to mention many other under L$75 finds. These promo’s are a limited time special, so don’t wait too long to look them up.

beachy2

One of the reasons why I chose the pattern on bikini that I did, was because of the shoes I wanted to wear. These pink and wood beauties are from KoiKoi, and unfortunately, the owner of KoiKoi is closing the store’s doors as of the end of the month😦 Luckily for us shoe lovers, she has decided to reduce the price of all those beautiful shoes. For only L$50, you can pick out any single pair of shoes in the store, such as the gorgeous Filament Pink clogs I am sporting. If you can’t decide on a single colour, and just love them all, the fatpacks are set to only L$200, and these are all way more customizable with an included colour change HUD that lets you change individual parts of each shoe. Either way, I was a happy shoe-camper! As I said, you only have until Aug 31, so get your shoe-loving booties over there.

My other reason for choosing the texture on my swimsuit, was how well it went with the beautiful skin I am wearing. The Niska in Sangria is another lovely skin offering from one of my favourite skin stores, Lumae. As part of the most recent Lazy Sunday, you can snap up each skin tone for only L$75 a piece. I happen to be wearing my favourite tone, Rosy. As always with Lumae’s Lazy Sunday items, these will be left out for an extended time, and actually, you have until Aug 29 to grab these, as Lumiya Rae happened to put the skins out just a little bit late! We won’t fault her for that though, will we:) These skins come with every applier you could possibly hope for, and the orangey red shade of the lipstick and eyeshadow is so pretty, how could you not want one of these skins? The only thing missing…is an actual sangria!

I wonder if I could get a waiter out this far on the beach? *Waves her hands and helloooo’s* Alright lovelies, I am going to see about getting myself a fruity drink. I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again, this same time next week! Until then, TTFN.
