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!

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 was all a Daydream

It was all a Daydream

Do you ever have one of those daydreams where you hear, smell, and feel the dream rather than just see it in your mind? I have those sort of daydreams about the ocean. In the moment I can hear the sea birds, and the rush of the waves, smell that unmistakable salty sea air, feel the wet sand beneath my feet, and the warm sun on my skin. Thank goodness for Second Life where beach-life is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long!

Beauty Factory

Speaking of beach-life, I picked up this new bikini at Beauty Factory recently. It’s one of their most recent group gifts, and it comes in several colors and sizes. Not only that, did you know that Beauty Factory has a room of group gifts? That’s right I said room. There is a one time join fee of 99 linden for the Beauty Factory group, however I think the number of group gifts available more than makes up for it. You’ll find the group gift room at Beauty Factory in one of the smaller buildings outside the main building. Happy Shopping!

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Last Days of Summer

Last days of Summer

I know it’s coming up on Fall. But heat-wise,  it’s still in the triple digits here in Texas. It’s hot. Stupid hot. Happily, we have three hundred and seventy miles of  ocean side beaches here. And those salty ocean breezes are calling my name!

Beach Weekend

Beach Weekend

Sometimes life is kinda weird. Second Life even more so…

So I was checking out the Imaginarium yesterday and if you haven’t yet you really should! There’s a ton of great Gachas perfect for summer time and a ton of free gifts! Anyway, I stopped to play Art & Ko’s “Beach Weekend” gacha cause I loved the common bikini and beach sandals. It’s not often you really like the common as much or more than the Rare, am I right? I plucked down my 50L and pulled the RARE the very first time! So I knew I had to blog this cool beachy look!

Beach Baby

The one piece rare swimsuit comes with  an option to change to one of five colors but there’s no HUD. You click on the suit itself to choose your look. Pretty innovative, huh?

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Curls for Days

My curly new ‘do is one of those free gifts I mentioned earlier. This is “Em” from Analog Dog and it’s yours for free when you’re a member of the Gimme Gacha Group. Which is, of course, free to join. Em comes with a full fatpack of colors for you to enjoy!

The Imaginarium is open until the end of the month for your shopping pleasure!

I’m an Easter Beach Bunny today since I found this great gacha from Loki Store. I’m not sure when the “Kawaii Summer” Gacha actually came out so this might not be news to you. But it was a sweet new find for me over at the Loki main store.

The Good Ole Summer Time

“Kawaii Summer” is a 50L per play gacha with both the ruffled swim suit and the blow up swim tube with a pose. There are six pastel colors of swim suit and seven different poses with the inner tube including one rare pose. The Tube includes a HUD to change the color to match your suit.

Sizes Included

The Beach is Calling Me

Hey There Fab Free! I’ve got the car packed, a picnic basket, my swimsuit, and I am ready for some sand and surf. I am definitely one of those people who feels like the sea calls to them. There’s something about it, and no other body of water will do. I need the salty sea air and the rolling ocean waves. This palm tree and flamingo print swimsuit by Vicarious Youth is just to cute to not wear it out for a day in the sun. It’s one of several inexpensive finds at the VY Spring Cart Sale cart.

The Last Siren Song

The Last Siren Song
Well Fab Free’rs, we have officially made it into autumn. The hot summer nights have begun to give way to balmy afternoons and cool crisp evenings. Truly it is the end of mermaid season in the Western Hemisphere. I like to imagine all the sirens migrate to warmer waters this time of year.

What has me waxing poetic about mermaids in late September? This gorgeous shell bikini is a current free group gift at Beauty Factory. Also, the Beauty Factory group is free to join until September 25th. So do not wait to pick this up! There are additional previous group gifts also available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

I Come From the Water

I Come From the Water
Hello Fab Free’rs, Happy Sunday-fun-day! I hope everyone has been having a good weekend. Mine has been great so far. Today I am so excited to tell you about the free August Subscriber gift from BYRNE. This gorgeous peacock feather print summer dress is this month’s free gift, and I can’t say enough nice things about it. The skirt is sheer from the upper thigh down, and has a hi-lo type look. I’m sure there’s a name for this type of skirt, but I am not up on my fashion terms. Maybe that’s a sign I need to have some intellectual curiosity here!

So of course I wore this dress to the beach, the colors and the feathered pattern gave me some tropical summer feels. This peacock dress from BYRNE was sent out a few days ago to all Subscriber members. If you missed it just head over to BYRNE and click the subscriber. You might have to rejoin. Subscribers can be tricky sometimes, like anything in Second Life! ha The dress comes in several sizes and includes a head scarf not shown in the photo.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Head Wreath – *LODE* Head Accessory – Gladiolus [pink]

Hair – Clawtooth: Soaked (Brunettes w/roots Pack)

Splashing Around at the Beach

Splashing Around at the Beach

Hello FabFree!

Today I decided I need a beach day, so I decided to head over to Adele, in my new bathing suit that I picked up from Mermaid Cove and try out the texture change between dry and wet. Well, as I am exploring Salt from Salt and Pepper comes into group chat and says they have a new Group Gift out! Turns out it’s the cover-up for my new bathing suit, so I had to share it all with you!

The in-world Salt and Pepper group is $300L to join, but past gifts are also available in-store, you can see some past gift coverage {here}. The group gift and bathing suit react to SL water! When you walk into water or interact with other S&P Aquasense items, the texture will change to mermaid! I completely admit, I may have squealed a little when I first got into the water and my entire suit changed, but we won’t talk about that… Giggles. It’s like you have two-in-one! The HUD also offers your cover-up or suit to be mermaid or dry all the time. As well as allowing you to change the amount of seconds it takes for your outfit to dry, after entering the water and activating the interactive function!

The Sierra group gift is located inside the Salt and Pepper main store, on a huge billboard/poster, you can’t miss it! Just don’t forget to wear your group tag!!

Salt and Pepper- Sierra Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya
