Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Hello hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs. I hope you’ve been enjoying yours. As for me, it’s been a productive sort of quiet weekend and I’m not at all mad about it. Even more, I’m excited to share with you some pretty summery finds from Dead Doll and Sweet Evil. On a side note, bonus points if you’re familiar with the movie from which I got my blog title, and the relation to the seals.

Dead Doll 

This pretty sarong-like tropical print skirt is a free group gift at Dead Doll. It has a color change hud with several color choices and you can color the skirt and the tie separately. Right now the Dead Doll group has a one-time join fee of 250 linden. I think this cute summer skirt is perfect for dressing up and wearing out or even on it’s own at the beach with a bikini.

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Sweet Evil has a dollarbie gift card worth 250 linden for current group members. The Sweet Evil group is free to join. I have no idea how long this gift card will be available, so definite do not wait to pick it up. With my gift card I picked out this cute halter style top and after using my 250 linden gift card only paid 50 linden for the top. I think it went well with the skirt, and it has a tinting hud so you can tint the shirt to match just about anything with the choice of tinting the main part of the shirt and the straps separately. There are lots of things to choose from at Sweet Evil, including BOM items. Just a note of caution, if you’re at all bothered by bare breasts, you might skip this one. Many of the tops sold at Sweet Evil have breasts playfully exposed.

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

Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy/Legacy Perky

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

Hunt Hint: Careful, he bites!

    • Male Swimsuit Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh (s-L)
    • Female Swimsuit Sizes Included: Voluptuous, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh

SamPoses

This sweet beachy pose complete with seashell prop is a free group gift at La Vie en Pose by SamPoses. The gift includes the pose in a stand which gives you the ability to adjust the pose the same way you would in furniture. The pose is called Sea Sound and you can get your copy by heading over to the La Vie en Pose event and stopping by the SamPoses booth. You’ll need to join the La Vie en Pose event group as well. It is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag.

Peace Love Music and Air Hockey

Peace Love Music & FoosballWaiting is always hard, especially when I’m waiting for Blue to get home so I can attempt to beat him at air hockey. The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ocacin, EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all doin well. I am making it a day at a time. I think we all are in some form or fashion. Speaking of Fashion, I’m loving this yellow moment. I took a time out in SL, browsed through some shops, and just had some me time. Along the way I also picked up these yellow shoes by Thrive, and this honey bee patterned top by Kieran Stephens Designs for free. Something about the bright warm yellow colors really uplifted my mood, and the “free” aspect didn’t hurt. Lastly, keeping with the yellow theme, this cozy chair from Consignment is just 1 linden. Keep reading for details, and check the end for credits.

Thrive

I have a thing for yellow-work boots. Call it nostalgia, call it weird, call it whatever you like, I love them. These “B-Ball Sneakers” by Thrive remind me exactly of that shade of work-boot-yellow. They are also unisex in that they come in male and female sizes. Even better, they are a free group gift at Thrive. The Thrive group also happens to be free to join at this time, so don’t miss out!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Legacy Male, Signature Male, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh

Kieran Stephens Designs

Having picked up my sneaks at Thrive, I was on the hunt for something to wear with them. This cute off-the-shoulder cropped top in bright yellow with the honey bee print could not have worked out better. This fun top is a free Stay at Home Club gift by Kieran Stephens Designs. There’s no group needed, just grab your free gift at Kieran Stephens Designs. It’s that easy!

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Consignment 

This buttery yellow chair by Consignment is quite possibly one of my favorite dollarbie finds. Blue’s had it in the house as long as I’ve known him and I’ve always liked it. Today he let me in on the dollarbie secret. We double checked, and sure enough it’s still just 1 linden at Consignment. It has couples and singles animated poses, PG of course, and the textures are nice. To get yours you’ll need to find the vendor for this chair at Consignment, the vendor is small. It’s on the second level of the displays. You’ll see what I mean when you get there if you’ve not been before. There’s no group needed, just pay the vendor 1 linden and your chair will be sent to you.

White Swan

Stupid Cupid Hunt @ Mooh

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I have a few fabulous freebies to share with you today which I used to put together this elegant look. I was trying to look like a graceful white swan sitting by a lake at Winter Moon. Swan Lake is one of my favourite stories and I am definitely feeling some fairytale vibes from these lovely free and 1L finds…

Mooh!’s Stupid Cupid Hunt Prize

When I first saw an advertisement for the hunt prize offered by Mooh! for Evil Bunny Hunt’s Stupid Cupid Hunt 8, it immediately reminded me of a swan! Like all of Mooh!‘s hunt items, I knew I had to have it!  So, I hunted away until I found the prize, and was I ever amazed! The dress is simply gorgeous, and it costs only 1 linden to buy. The “Becky Dress” comes in several colours and it has such a gorgeous texture- it really does look like it’s made out of lace and bird feathers. To get the dress, visit Mooh! and start hunting! The hint is: “Bears and pigs need love too!”.

Sizes

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Tonic (Fine & Curvy)
  • Fitmesh ( XXS, XS, S, M, L)

PUMEC’s Discounted Group & Retiring Gifts

PUME C currently has a huge sale on. The creator has decided to switch over to selling a new line of skin tones, so everything in the store is currently 50% off and the group is a whooping 75% off. The group costs only 99 Linden to join, until February 10th only (this Monday). The group normally costs 400 Linden to join. The current group gifts will be retiring forever after February 10th as well, so join before then and grab them all ASAP before it is too late! The PUME C group has so much to offer! They have high quality skins and mesh ears as group gifts and if you join before February 10th, you can have all their past gifts and be in the running for all future gifts, so it is a win-win! How can you possibly resist?

I am currently wearing one of their past group gifts which I got by joining their group for this low, limited-time group join fee. This is the March Gift #1 made for Genus heads, and it is a stunning skin (and Pru showed it to you previously HERE) , as are all of the PumeC group gifts which are shortly retiring, so get in on this discounted group join offer now!

Leigh Valentine’s Hunt- Triskele Jewelry Set

Ms. Fabulous recently wrote the cutest blog post about the hunt going on at Leigh right now. After hearing that there were two completely free items on the hunt, I decided to find them! The last accesories I added to my  outfit are the “triskele necklace and earrings” and I think they go perfectly with my white swan look. The necklace sparkles beautifully, and this jewelry set is one of the free items on the hunt. The specific hunt location can be reached here.

Have a wonderful weekend, Fab Free!

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I think there’s some unspoken rule that when dating someone you must at some point wear one of their shirts. I’ve certainly stolen borrowed Blue’s shirts before. This time I claimed his pajama shirt; though honestly I don’t think it bothered him at all. These royal blue heart print pajamas are the his and hers Sin City 3 hunt prize at The Sissy Bar.

The Sin City 3 Hunt has multiple paths. These prizes are the male and female path prizes at The Sissy Bar priced at 1 linden each. Both the men’s pajama pants and the women’s pajama top come in several sizes. There is also an alpha layer and standard mesh sizes so these dollarbie hunt gifts are suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.

Men’s Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (s-XL) + Alpha Layer, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, Slink, TMP
Women’s Sizes Included: Classica Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Men’s Prize Hint “Hiding next to a gas pump trying to copy it so I can blend in.”

Women’s Prize Hint“Hiding behind the guardian bells so I feel safe.”

Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Not a Creature Was Stirring...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; or an adorable puppy. I’ve been enjoying all the Christmas things this year, and the latest group gift at JIAN is among my favorites. The side table complete with cocoa, cookies, and not one, not two, but three adorable puppies is just more than I can resist. It also goes quite well with the Reindeer Games Hunt prize at Park Place. I love the details of this arm chair with the holiday pillow and draped blanket. It looks like the perfect spot to curl up for a long winter nap. For more info about each of these fantastic finds keep reading. As always, there is a full list of credits and links at the end. Happy Holidays!

JIAN

As I mentioned above, this side table with the cookies and cocoa, candle, books, glasses, and even the sweet sleeping puppies is a free group gift at JIAN. This gift is highly detailed and has a touch menu that lets you pick from different textures for the puppies, colors for the blanket they are snuggled up on, and change the lighting effect of the candle. The JIAN group also happens to be free to join at this time.

Park Place

Park Place is participating in the Reindeer Games Hunt happening now. The RGH is a dollarbie hunt with a twist. If you don’t feel like hunting, no problem! The hunt prize is also for sale along side the hunt poster at the participating store for 25 linden. Otherwise, if you’re up for the challenge you can hunt the prize and pay just 1 linden for it once you’ve found it. The prize at Park Place is this nicely crafted arm chair. It includes several male and female sit poses, along with several PG couples poses. Don’t miss this great dollarbie, the hunt ends December 31st.

Hint “Think I’ll just sit at my desk and finish my letter to Santa.”

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!
