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

Beach, Please!

Beach, Please!

Life takes you down many paths – but the best lead to the beach!

Today, my path took me to the beach, and I had the perfect outfit for it.  The “Beach Please” (giggle) outfit was an exceedingly affordable 10 Lindens at The Wash Sunny Side Up Cart Sale.  Have you been yet?  There are so many fantastic things to be had.  I got my outfit at The Little Bat cart, and I couldn’t be happier.  I really love the cut of the top, and of course the sassy wording on it!  This cuteness comes in sizes XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Where does your path take you?

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs
Skin – Essences  – Amber
Bikini – .:: KENODOXY ::. – Bea deux-pieces – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Tattoos – Nar Mattaru <Nar> Legend Tattoos
Shoes – [VO.Z] Rose Heels – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join

In My Birthday Suit

In My Birthday Suit

It’s high time to head to the beach, I think.  Ok, it may only be March, and I believe snow is looming in many parts of the world, so quite frankly we need to soak up the rays right now, even if they are only in SL.  I found a really cute bathing suit at Lana that may just tickle your fancy!

Vitamin Sea

The salt water lapping at my legs is all I need to feel at peace today, though this bathing suit by Lana is seriously giving me those mid 90’s vibes that bring me back to a fun time and place in my life!  I mean, how can you say no to a hot pink suit with “Birthday Suit” printed across it?   So hot.  It comes with an HUD to um…. reveal some more of your upper body (cough, cough), you can also change the colour to a dizzying array of awesomeness.  It fits my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  You can grab this fun bathing suit by joining the Lana group for 100L (there are other gifts up on the wall!).

To top off my look, I have these free catty ears by Enchante which I grabbed at the Cosmopolitan event by joining their group for free.  There is another gift there too – both are hiding by the front entrance to the event! Meow!

Right, it may ruin my hair, but I’m diving in!

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Appliers included:

  • System
  • Signature
  • Belleza
  • Physique
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya

It will be back to school soon in my neck of the woods and lots of people are gearing up for that time of year. I wanted to enjoy some last minute beach time before it became “hitting the books” time. So I checked out the Pool Party Hunt to see what I could find and struck gold (or in this case black and white!) with this amazing one piece suit from Lady Dragon’s Design.

This retro look one piece suit is part the creator’s 1L offering as the hunt prize and comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Maitreya and Slink. (While you are there, be sure to pick up the Women’s Stuff Hunt gift which is also out for only 1L — you’ll get a gorgeous full outfit that includes slink shoes!).

Speaking of “Back to School” — be thinking of all those cool Back to School photos you’ll want to enter into the Back to School FabFree Photo Challenge! Details were posted by our lovely Julianna [here].

Have a great day!

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

She Sells Sea Shells

She Sells Sea Shells

It’s hot and sticky outside, and there’s no place I’d rather be than standing in the cool water with my toes in the sand! Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read the Fab Free blog! Today, I am happy to share with you some gorgeous FREE hair and this FREE retro swimsuit!

The current round of Hairology is a discounted round, and several of the participating designers have out FREE gifts to help celebrate Second Life’s 13th birthday! The hair Pru is wearing is from RunAway, and it’s absolutely FREE. This pretty long layered style comes in a fitted mesh, rigid mesh, and a boobs version. In the folder you’ll also find an “essentials” color hud with several color options, matching system layer hair bases, and an alpha layer. There’s no need to join a group to get this gift just head over to Hairology and click the cake in front of the RunAway booth.

I love retro swimwear, it’s flattering no matter what your size or shape. This cute little swimsuit is a FREE subscribo gift at SaCaYa. Just join the subscriber and you’ll be sent this FREE gift. The package includes the mesh swimsuit in standard and fitmesh sizes, as well as a Belleza, Slink Physique, and Maitreya fit. You’ll also receive alpha layers and a hud that allows you to do a little customizing. The hud lets you hid or show features such as the halter straps, bow, and buttons.

*** Update! 6/13 – It’s been brought to my attention that the subscribo at the landing point does not give the swimsuit gift. You will need to join the subscribo on a nearby wall with the photo of the swimsuit above it to get that gift. Otherwise you can also join the FREE in-world group to get this gift. Sorry for any confusion!
