Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach!  With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday.  I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy.  It will be wonderful!  I hope you have some time with family and friends, too.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Lifeguard Love

Snapshot_003Whew! What a day…  I had no idea being a lifeguard would be such a hectic job!  I don’t think I got to sit in that cool perched lifeguard chair for more than a few minutes.  Thank goodness I get a bit of a break now.  As surfing and swimming causes quite a healthy appetite, the water clears out pretty quick at dinner.  I just see him out in the waves…  pretend flailing for the third time.  I have half a mind to go out there and remind him about chicken little.   He’s probably a better swimmer than I am…  but does love to be rescued…

Get Your Own Uniform

My swimsuit and towel can be found at The Wash Cart Sale on the K&A Design display for 10L.  Yes!!   You get both items, for just 10L.  Crazy stuff isn’t it?

Wild Rose

Rose

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I’m taking a quick break from housecleaning in RL to tell you about another discovery Ripley and I made at The Cart Wash.  The Wild Rose top from Mystic Dragon Designs features a floral print across a white background, a halter style neckline, and an asymmetrical open front, which offers a sexy peek at your belly button.   I really love the romantic, feminine look of this summery shirt, and you can scoop it up for only 10L at The Wash.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus
  • Werwolf

Sadly, the dog hair (thanks, Ripley!) is not vacuuming itself up, so I need to return to my cleaning.  Perhaps I should follow Serena’s example and pick up the Clean-o-Mat.  It sure would come in handy!  Or maybe you can train a dog to use a vacuum cleaner?  I wonder…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

Good evening FabFree Readers!  Ecce Bellus has a sweet new group gift for their inworld group members that is perfect for the upcoming independence day.  I am actually Canadian, and will be celebrating Canada Day on July 1st, but I sure don’t mind celebrating with my American friends on the 4th too.  🙂

Gently Down The Stream

TheWashTiar
The Wash Cart Sale is underway and there are tons and tons of 10L fabulous finds!  Today I am gently floating down the stream in three items I picked up at the Tiar display.

Tiar Leeas Top – 10L!!

The Leeas Top by Tiar comes in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  Included is a 6 texture option HUD so you can match it up with whatever bottoms you decide to wear with it!

Tiar Sexy Shorts – 10L!!

You won’t need to go far to find some great shorts to go with the Leeas Top…  The Tiar Sexy Shorts are also available at The Wash Cart Sale for 10L.  These hot shorts come in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  I am wearing a denim floral print, but it also offers a camouflage option via an included HUD.

Tiar Woman Keds – 10L!!

Who doesn’t need a pair of basic sneakers?  These are keepers!  for just 10L you can pick up the Woman Keds (resize), and they include a HUD for 10 different prints and solids.  They don’t say exactly which feet they work with, however I am wearing my Maitreya Lara Feet and they fit with no adjusting.  I imagine they would work with most feet as it includes a resize opton.

True Beauty is Found in Virtue

Dream Another Dream

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I made a new pal today as we were out wandering across The Mill.  Maybe it was my cowgirl boots, maybe my lovely new dress, or perhaps the carrots I snuck to him, but Beau, here, is now one of our fast friends.  He’s super gentle, and with him around, I will never have to mow the lawn again! 🙂

Speaking of the Dress…

Eve, is the latest free gift from Virtue for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With short sleeves, a body hugging bodice, and a long flowing hemline, this dress is sweetly feminine.  I really like the way the bodice and the skirt have slightly different textures that coordinate together beautifully.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XS, X, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus

If you haven’t visited the group gift listing for Fabulously Free in SL members, I’d highly recommend checking it out.   The generosity of designers in SL never ceases to amaze me!  You can find the Fab Free group gift listing {HERE}.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Look Out Beach Bunnies, Here I Come

Snapshot_007
Greetings Fabulouses!

Oh No He Didn’t

I can’t believe he sent me that sassypants selfie from his surfing trip!  No way he was going to get away with that.  I recognized his usual surfing spot from his photo and decided to join him since my trip was a bust.  He better clear out those “beach bunnies” he spoke of earlier [HERE], because Love Trill is on her way!  I put my pedal to the metal and hightailed it home to grab my bikinis and see if I could dig up an old board in his man cave.  I can’t actually surf, but his old boards make for good floatie sun loungers.  I just stay out of the waves!  I know one thing is for sure…  The furbabies will be happy to see me 😀

My Beach Babe Outfit

It was very fortunate that I came across these super cute Ibiza shorts as a free group gift at Bijou.  I actually went in to pick up the group gift that Kathryn showed off in her post [HERE] and found there are a few gifts including the new Ibiza Shorts.  This group is free to join!

If you are interested, the matching Ibiza top that I am wearing is located nearby and you can purchase the whole fatpack of colours for just 100L!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Flirty and Free

Free as a Dove

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Every once in a while, when I’m out walking Ripley, he puts his nose to the ground, and pulls me with single-minded determination.   Usually when this happens, my hound with a nose for fashion is leading me toward a fabulous discovery.  I’ve learned to just follow his instincts, and I haven’t been disappointed yet.

Free as a Dove

Today my pal dragged guided me to The Free Dove, and stood outside, his tail wagging happily.   As a new resident to second life (back in the virtual dinosaur age), I used to visit the shop all the time, but I haven’t journeyed there for quite some time.  I’m so glad the pupster steered me in that direction because I was able to scoop up this free, summery, mini dress from M&M Style.  With a cheerful dark blue and white print, and slender shoulder straps, this frock is perfect for a casual summer day.  It has a body-skimming fit that will flatter your figure, and ends with a slightly flared skirt. Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh body, this dress comes in five sizes and one of them perfectly fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  An alpha layer is also tucked inside the package for those with classic avatars.

Thanks for the Reminder, Ripley!

There are many quality, free items at The Free Dove.  It’s well worth a visit.  I know I plan to return often to search for new Fabulous Finds to share with you all.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Catch of the Day

Catch of the Day
Hello Fabulouses!  I hauled in a great one today!  No, it’s not the fish (but he’s a beauty, don’t you think?)  My Fabulous Find is the best catch of all!  This adorable short set is a free group gift for members of the B&T Designs group at Bijou Couture.  My barely-there, bardot style, crop top coordinates perfectly with the patterned belt and back pockets of the Naomi shorts.  I just love the sweet rose pattern and the soft ruffles in the top and sleeves.  I’m sure to soak up plenty of the sun’s rays with my shoulders and tummy bare.  This outfit is ideal for a lazy warm spring or summer day.  You have to be a group member to reel in this charming short set, but the group is completely free to join.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Catch and Release

Well, I’d better pop this guy back in the water, and whistle for Ripley, who is off hunting for the perfect stick.  It’s time for us to mosey on home for the day.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
