A ‘o ia!

A 'o ia!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

Time is Fleeting

It's About Time

This is going to be fast one from me. I wanted to make a ‘quickie’ joke but Julianna forbid it. So I didn’t.  At any rate, this is the last twenty four hours of the Star Spangled Hunt put on by Sweet Intoxication. So if you want any of the 1L prizes, you’ll need to hurry.

About Time

This is the Tygren Shirt with the “Time Rose” pattern. It is the gentlemen’s prize on the very first stop on the Hunt: at Sweet Intoxication. I am rather impressed with the old school vintage tattoo look of the design and I foresee wearing it often. As I said, if you want to pick up this excellent shirt for yourself you need to hurry along before the Hunt ends tomorrow.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Late Night Swim


Late Night Swim

Hey There Fab Free! Welcome to the blog. I think that Blue and I are going to spend as much of the SL summer as we can in swimwear, and I think you should consider doing so also. haha Luckily the Siren’s Song hunt has started and we were able to pick up another matching set of swimsuits for free. The free gear by Dragonmoon Designs also made the perfect excuse for a late night swim, which is possibly one of my favorite warm weather activities.


Late Night Swim 2

F Hint – “Get Lucky”

M Hint – “It’s all Greek to me.”

These free SSH gifts are just waiting to be found at Dragonmoon Designs. They both come in several sizes and include a color change hud with 3 color choices for some added style options. Each prize is hidden separately, but with the provided hints they shouldn’t be too difficult to find. The hunt object is a sand dollar.

Swim Trunk Sizes: Standard Mesh (xs-L), Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, Belleza (Gianni,Jake), TMP *No Alpha Included

Bikini Sizes: Classic/Standard Mesh (xxs- L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara *No Alpha Included

P.S. The skin Blue has on is a free group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. You can get it with your 7DS group tag. The group is also free to join at this time!

Here are the details:

The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James
