Bloggers at the Beach

Bloggers at the Beach

It was high time to get the whole gang together and head over to the beach.  We clambered into an old beat up VW camper van for aesthetic purposes, all the pups in tow.  Of course, we packed a picnic and sang really fabulous songs from the 50’s all the way to the late 2000’s as loud as we could, with our hair blowing in the wind of our speed, all while laughing at terrible knock knock jokes and reminiscing about the magic of summers gone by.  I love it when we all get together!

Swimwear Galore

As you can see, we managed to get all our full time bloggers together for a bit of sun and sand, and a whole lot of bikinis.  There are so many nice pieces of swimwear to be had right now that we thought it would be fun to give you a smattering of what’s available on the grid so you can have a nice cross-section of goodies to choose from.  Here’s what we’re wearing:

You do know that a massive and super splashy water fight came right after this, right?

The Summer of Swimwear

The Summer of Swimwear

I may just have to proclaim this the summer of the bikini!  I’ve been stocking up bit by bit on some great swimwear, and yet my hoard just keeps growing.  I love having all these different options to wear to the beach, and this one sure is a fab addition!

Happy Anniversary Addams!

The big news that broke last night is that Addams is celebrating their 7th anniversary with all sorts of awesome goodies for members of a new group they’ve just started.  The Addams VIP group is only 5L to join, and with that you’ll be able to pick up this cool bikini and shirt combo (they can be worn separately and come in a fatpack of colours).  You’ll also get 500L in store credit (click on the poster near the gift cards) as well as 10% back on all purchases made in the store (and yes, also all the old group gifts).  Woah, that’s a pretty sweet deal for a 5L group join!

Note:  You have 5 days to spend the credits from when you click on the sign… don’t forget to use them!  ♥

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis

Just Beachy

Coming Soon

Ah, summer. The season of bikinis. I’m getting revved up to go to the beach at the cottage (aka my log home), and it should be a fun trip! Just when you thought you had more than enough swimwear and summer wear than your inventory can take, I’m hitting you up with another summer/beachy outfit! Today I will be showing you how to get this awesome bikini, matching sunglasses and hair for 1L each on two awesome hunts taking place this moth. 

The Beached Bunny Hunt

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since the last Beached Bunny Hunt, but the Beach Bunny Hunt is celebrating its 11th run! The Evil Bunny hunts are always great, and their summer beach hunt is one of my favourites because you can find lots of versatile, summer-themed items on this hunt. Each prize costs only 1 linden. The Beached Bunny Hunt 11 runs until July 31st.

I am showing off 2 prizes from the hunt today including:

  • A bikini from Ari-Pari sized for . The ‘kini is sized for Physique, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Freya, Venus and Isis, and it includes a colour texture change hud to change the the bikini to 10 colourful wildcat patterns. 
  • A great updo hairstyle from .EscalateD. called “Harper” that includes a style hud and 2 hair colour change universal huds (naturals and unnaturals colours). 

I am always amazed at the quality and design by these two creators, and for only 2 linden you can get some items that are versatile, customizable and incredibly made!

Life’s A Beach

Another hunt I am showing you all today is the “Life’s a Beach” hunt organized by by Cheeky Monkey hunts. Indeed, the title of this hunt is cheeky, and it gives me a laugh every time. You may not know this about me, but I love all things cheeky, witty, sarcastic, and sassy. The item I am showing from that hunt today is also 1 Linden, and it’s another prize from Ari-Pari. The great thing about this prize is that it perfectly matched the bikini from the Beached Bunny Hunt! You can match up the textures of these sunglasses to match perfectly, and it’s super cute. The sunglasses come with a colour texture change hud that allow you to change the colours of the rims of the glasses to the 10 colours of the bikini shown in my post here. This is a wild, crazy, and sexy bikini and sunglasses pairing, so go rock this look! 

Have fun hunting, FabFree!

Dance Often

Dance Often
I have this thing that the minute I hear music that I love, I have to dance.  Doesn’t matter what I’m doing – working, eating, doing needlepoint (?)… the music dictates what’s about to happen.  I know, it sounds completely insane and utterly bonkers (simultaneously) but generally it’s a good way to live.  Though I recommend you finish chopping carrots before  you start dancing… just in case.  Anyway, I made my way to the beach, and wouldn’t you know it – my song came on.  Not surprising when I have more than 100 “my” songs!

Hunt it Out

There’s a fun little hunt going on at Leigh at the moment – the summer glam hunt has everything you need for a chic day at the beach (and then some!)  I picked up this swimsuit and coverup combo for just 10L (and a bit of hunting) as well as the pretty beaded foot jewelry for FREE!  There are quite a few nice things to add to your inventory, so do check it out before it’s all over on July 31st.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Ain’t it the TRUTH

Oh yes, it’s time for a new TRUTH VIP hairstyle!  I’m super in love with this cute high ponytail.  As with all Truth VIP hairstyles, you get a full fatpack of colours and a few different styling options as well.  The Truth group is 350L to join, and you’ll find this sweet hairstyle tucked in group notices.

So Apple Fall has a bunch of their goodies for 50L on Marketplace until tomorrow.  I’m telling you, home decor, furniture, skyboxes, houses!!!!  50L.  Truly.  I picked up a couple of skyboxes and this amazingly detailed spa (check the water and the bubbles in this when you see it, the details!), its got a fire burning in it to heat your water and smoke from the chimney.  It comes in PG and adult.  It also comes in several colors, but I chose this warm brown for my spa.

Now, I don’t get to sit here for long, there is so much to blog for y’all right now!  But it was nice to take a breather and enjoy for a bit.  Happy Shopping!  (50L!!!!)

Diving In All Over Again

Diving in All Over Again
I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time at the beach these days, haven’t I?  You can’t blame me, I spend most of my life in a world blanketed in a thick carpet of snow, so when beach season arrives, I totally go for it.  Just, don’t let the fish know that I’m scared of them, ok?

Oh Maai!

It’s time for a new lovely group gift courtesy of Maai!  This punchy floral bathing suit is making me feel decidedly tropical, and I can’t complain at all.  To get your own, join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor.  There are a few other gifts to pick up as well.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

Sea you later! (See what I did there?)
