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!

  1. “Don’t forget to vote!”
  2. “Watch your step!”
  3. “Feel free to join our group!”
  4. “Twinkle, twinkle little… hedge?!”
  5. “How much is that faerie in the window?”

Besties Pool Party

Besties Pool Party

I would like to introduce you to one of my best friends ever, Swara. We’ve been great friends in SL for a few years now and she is my #1 shopping and chatting buddie. The other day Swara and I decided to have a besties pool party! What a great way to start the summer season. We also found some cute freebies to share with you all that will kick off the summer just right. 

Goodies @ Miix

The first thing I want to talk about is a great freebie available at the Miix event right now. Furtacor usually blesses us with wonderful gifts at this event every month, and they have done it again. This time, the free group gift designed for women contains holdable watermelon drinks, a Bakes-on-Mesh (BOM) bathing suit, and a purse. Swara and I decided to keep the purses away from the pool so our precious belongings wouldn’t get wreaked. We both decided to sip on those thirst-quenching watermelon coolers while we sunbathed in the pool! Swara is wearing the cute BOM swimsuit included in the package.  

 The Miix event ends on June 20th, so make sure you grab up the free gifts before they’re gone. They even have some free Spongebob Squarepants swimming trunks for men out for free!

WATERMELON -  GIFT MIIX EVENT

 

My Pool Gear!

  • The bikini I picked for our party is from Ari-Pari, and it’s a 1 L hunt prize on the Summer Lovin’ Hunt 5. The hint for the prize is, You’ll find me near a hanging jade… not the gem! The ‘kini comes in 10 colours you can change via a HUD and it is sized for Legacy, Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass. 
  • I am also wearing several makeup dollarbies from Bellucci. My eyeshadow comes from their pride makeup set and the lipstick comes from the pack of Hidden Hills lipsticks. These makeups are appliers that work on Lelutka Evolution heads only, and they cost 1 Linden each.

Bellucci - Hidden Hills Gift [LEL EVO] (Add)

Swara’s Stylin’

I must admit that Swara is rocking it in this look! In addition to rocking that sexy swimsuit, her style includes the following freebies:

  • A couple free group gifts from Spookshow, including the collar and earrings, which are both pride-themed gifts! The Spookshow group is currently free to join. 
  • Her adorable little bracelet is a free gift at Marked. They also have a free pride necklace gift out and several other free group gifts. Most of their gifts are accessories designed for male avatars, but some are unisex.

Those Floaties

I must not forget to mention the adorable pool floaties featured in our pool party! These cute little floaties of narwhals and flamingos come from the pool fun gacha at MOoH!. You can play it at the mainstore and it is adorable. All the items in this gacha are perfect for the summer season and your next pool party! The Pool Fun Gacha at MOoH! costs 50L per pull to play.

All things Enchanted

Right now, the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt is going on, which means yet another free hunt by Enchantment. This hunt is on until May 31st, so get hunting my friends! The adorable little bird bath by MOoH! is one of the fabulous free gifts on the hunt. The bird is animated and moves around the bath! For a list of all the locations and hints on the hunt, go to this link.

Enchantment also has a shopping event on their sim to celebrate the Midsummer Night’s Dream event. Most of the decor in my scene is from the Enchanted forest gacha by MOoH! which you can play at the Midsummer Night’s Dream event until May 31st. I love the swans, the lamps and the adorable bed which is the rare pull. This gacha costs 50L per pull to play.  I also decorated the scene with some free grasses, a mushroom stump ad dried leaves, which are all free landscaping items as group gifts and Midnight Madness board prizes at Lunaria.

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

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

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

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

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Travel the World

Coming soon to Fab Free

The World Tour Hunt

Perhaps more than ever, we need a hunt where we can explore and tour the world. Goodness knows how much travel is banned at the moment in the real world. Let’s go back to days when we could just jump on a plane and fly to anywhere our hearts desire! The World Tour hunt ends on April 20th, and you can find all the information and different paths for the hunt on the Kastle & Co events website.

Travel in Style

This adorable air flight attendant uniform by Ari-Pari is the perfect outfit to get you started on the hunt. You might as well travel the world in style. This hunt prize costs only 3 Linden, and it even includes a colour change hud to change the tie to 10 different options.  Everything in this outfit comes as separates, so you can wear the skirt, vest, and shirt separately on their own or mix and match them with different outfits. Super cute!

Sizes Included

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

Stylish Accessories

I didn’t end my freebie hunting there! I also needed to find some accessories to complement my look. I stumbled upon a few adorable accessories that match this look perfectly at Pure Poison.  My sunglasses, shoes, and earrings are all free group gifts at Pure Poison.

The awesome purse is another freebie by Petit Chat on the marketplace. You can read more about this sale in my post here.

Enjoy your travels, FabFree!
