Beat the Heat


Beat the Heat

The Beached Bunny Hunt ends in just a few days. With that in mind I suggest heading over to Sevyn East and finding their little blue sand bucket before it’s gone. The BBH prize at Sevyn East is the perfect beachy set to beat the summer heat. The BBH prizes are just 1 linden, and this one includes the ruffled bikini I’m wearing and the transparent pink tote bag. The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

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

What I’m Wearing:

  • Hair – [DUE] Michelle
    Head – Catwa Koura
    Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
    Sunglasses – [Fetch] Miranda Sunglasses
    Swimsuit & Tote – Sevyn East – Erica Set – 1L BBH Prize
    Tattoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted

Bring on Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued our journey along a hunt path on the grid.  This time, inspired by Love’s, Juli’s and Pru’s recent posts, we checked out the Beached Bunny Hunt and headed over to Dragonmoon Designs.  There, we discovered an outfit perfect for the hot, lazy afternoons, and it cost just one little Linden dollar.

I Long for Those Sunny Days!

The Sunny Daze outfit features a buttoned tank top that reaches to about belly button level and coordinating shorts which have the cutest little ties dangling down.  In addition to versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, the folder includes a texture change HUD with four color options each for the shorts and top.  You can opt to color both the same as I have done or use different hues for more variety.  The tank and shorts are worn separately so you can mix and match with items from your wardrobe as well.  I really like the detailed buttons and the realistic wrinkles in the fabric where it is gathered in the shorts on the sides.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you need to do is locate the beach pail hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the 1 Linden prize fee.  It’s well worth the effort!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Free Flowing Locks

I picked up my new hairstyle for free as a Midnight Mania prize over at Olive Hair.  The Therra hairstyle prize is a full fatpack of colors (including streaked and non streaked varieties) and features a center part and thick luxurious hair pulled forward over your shoulders.  The Midnight Mania prizes over at Olive rotate through, so although the Therra style is not on display for today’s prize, there is another lovely long style for you to try your luck on.  If you check back another day, Therra may once again be featured soon.  There is no group required, and every day I’ve gone back, the target has been met, so it’s an easy way to add some new free styles to your collection!

Until my next post, happy hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

If anyone needs me, I’ll be on the beach building sand castles

FabFree: If anyone needs me, I'll be on the beach building sand castles

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  Previously on FabFree, we have seen Juli and Pru blog a couple of the prizes for the 9th Annual Beached Bunny Hunt, and I am returning to show off yet another one, that I thought was really cute.

A little about the hunt…

I am a bit of a cherry picker when it comes to hunts, and love when organizers put up a whole preview of what the prizes are before you take the time to go hunt them down (especially if there is a whole linden involved!!)  The Beached Bunny Hunt does have a prize preview along with hints and a graphic example of the hunt icon you are searching for (which is a blue sand bucket btw!)

Hopes Creations For The Beached Bunny Hunt 9

At Hopes Creations when you hunt down the blue sand bucket for the hunt and pay it 1L, you’ll have the Imogen Shorts in several mesh body sizes as well as a texture HUD that allows for three sweet summery prints.  I am displaying the white pair with a fun beachy print, but the other two are just as cute!!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy

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.

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Topsy Turvy

Hello and happy Friday, my FabFree Dears! I’m getting ready for the weekend by going completely casual! Well… I’m getting ready for a casual weekend in SL… in RL not so much….

topsyTurvy_001

ANY way…  let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started my casual Friday with these cute shorts from WallFlower. The ‘Daisy Denim’ shorts are part of the Beached Bunny Hunt and are a great 1L prize. Nice and versital. They come in system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Omega. It’s always good to see well done system layer items! On top, I have a cute lace side tie top from ‘New to me’ designer: Lowkey Shawty. The Knotted top is a dollarbie on Lowkey’s Marketplace page but there are many cute things in the main store too.

 

topsyTurvy_003

On top.. too or would that be two….  I have another fab design from our own FabFree Designer, More than Ever! The Blue Tie Dye tee is part of the Summer Hunt 2015 on the Flawless Sim. Each of the prizes is between 10 and 15L which sounds like a lot till you see the prizes. There are kiosks set up on the corners of the Sim displaying all the prizes from the shops so you can pick which prizes you want to hunt for. And trust me… you will want a bunch of them!

The 1L Beached Bunny Hunt runs until July 31st and the Summer Hunt runs until July 26th so Happy Hunting and have a great weekend!
