Toes in the Sand

With My Toes in the Sand

I don’t know about anyone else, but my Second Life summer is shaping up extremely nicely. As everyone knows by now I’ve been hitting the beach every chance I get. Thanks to Paper.Sparrow’s new Dog Days Hunt, I get to look extra cute while keeping my toes in the sand.

The Dog Days Hunt is an in-store hunt at Paper.Sparrow. There are 18 total hunt prizes at 25 lindens each. The hunt prizes include several tops, skirts, shorts, a dress, swimwear, shoes, and sunglasses. I paired together the top to the grey floral bikini with the blue floral Jesse shorts, and the tropical sunglasses v1. The Dog Days Hunt at Paper.Sparrow will last from now through the end of July. Happy Hunting!

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

A ‘o ia!

A 'o ia!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

  • His – Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature Gianni, Slink, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here in the Garden

Here in My Garden

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week in June? I’m pretty sure May was the longest single month I’ve ever experienced. I’m happy to be here in the month of June. Speaking of it being a new month, that means there’s a new group gift available at American Bazaar. This pretty peachy-pink colored dress with the stylized floral print is the free American Bazaar group gift for this month. It comes in sizes fit for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Feeling cute in my new dress I decided to take a stroll through the trails at Otter Lake. There are so many lovely spots to explore there. My pose and the butterfly prop are a free group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair Market. The set comes with the pose, 2 versions of the butterfly prop (one transferrable, one not), and a pose-ball version of the pose. To get yours you’ll need to join the free-to-join Pose Fair Market group and stop by the Hazeel booth. There you’ll find the gift pose waiting.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Kara Baby

Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is gearing up for a wonderful weekend. For this edition of Fab Free Designer Friday I have the pleasure of introducing or perhaps reintroducing Kara Baby. Kara Baby is a ladies clothing boutique that is ultra feminine and very flirty in style. What’s the saying? “Sugar and spice and everything nice…” that’s what Kara Baby made of! Here you’ll find lots of skirts and dresses, along with shoes, applier clothing, and a little bit of lingerie. I also spied a couple of bento nail sets, so be sure to really look around when shopping at Kara Baby.

There’s a second floor to Kara Baby where you can find some discounted items, and a room full of Slink shoes! Also, almost all the vendors are setup with easy redelivery and gifting abilities that make shopping easy. Before I forget, I want to mention that you can pick up several of the Omega Relay systems for your Omega compatible body parts at Kara Baby as well. You’ll find those on the first floor to the right.

Store Group

Kara Baby’s store group is free to join, and there are group gifts and occasional discounts. Group members are also the first to know about sales, hunts, and events Kara Baby is participating in.  At this time there are three free Kara Baby group gifts. One is a pretty purple dress with a vintage floral pattern that comes sized for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody Curvy, Altamura, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. The second gift is to the right of the information desk up on the wall. You’ll see a cute orange vintage-looking handbag. The third Kara Baby group gift is a pair of shoes on the same wall as the handbag. The shoes are black with a skull and crossbones print and come fitted for Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Fab Free Group Gift 

There are also two free Fabulously Free in SL group gifts available at Kara Baby. The most recent is a super cute ruffled skirt and cropped top set with a colorful print. This set is free to all Fab Free group members, and the Fab Free group is always free to join. The second gift is on the opposite wall and is a flirty fox print apron style dress. Both of these free gifts come in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody Curvy, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus.

Other Gifts & Discounts

Kara Baby also has set out a few of their gifts from past events including a free pair of shoes from a past Gacha Life event, a free lingerie set formerly at the The Point event, and a 10 linden devil horns headband gift that was originally at a Mad Circus event. There’s also a set of red white and blue patriotic bento nails for 10 linden that will fit Slink and Maitreya hands. Each of these freebies/cheapies are on the same wall to the right of the information desk.

If you head to the right there are also two free Stay at Home Club gifts at Kara Baby. Both gifts are a dress with quite a few size choices. Next to the Stay at Home Club gifts, there are discounted items for the free-to-join Best Stores and Designers group. Also on the same wall as the Stay at Home Club gifts is a 35L Sunday Sales special dress that is just 35 linden per color. Happy Shopping!

Need Caffeine

Need Caffeine

There are days when an extra cup of coffee or two first thing in the morning, and a mid-day pick-me-up are in order to keep me going. So when I saw this top by ZFG it made me giggle, and I knew at least some of you would relate. lol To help fend off a minor case of the Mondays I went over to the 35L Sales Event (thanks to a suggestion from Blue) and picked up quite a few of the free group gifts available, including this top. All the gifts require the 35L Sunday VIP group which is free to join.

Along with the top from ZFG I picked up this cute hairstyle from C.K., and this pretty necklace by Venge. Keep reading for more information about each of these free gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

ZFG

This shirt by ZFG is the definition of a loose-fitting comfy casual top. It’s the kind you wear around the house, or maybe with a cute sports bra to the gym. It comes in the color shown and reads “Caffeine is the Foundation of My Food Pyramid.” This gift is free at the 35L Sales Event, just wear the free group tag and click the black and red giftbox.

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

C.K.

This high ponytail hairstyle is also a free gift at the 35L Sales Event. It’s the quintessential messy but cute up-do. It also comes with a pretty flower crown that I chose not to wear, and a color change hud with a broad range of blond, brunette, and red hair colors.

Venge

Also, I couldn’t resist the necklace from Venge. This free gift includes 3 color/texture change huds to change the chain with a choice of copper, gold, or silver. Each of the 3 huds then has a choice of 6 colors for the crystal. Just like all the gifts at the 35L Sales Event, this one is free with the event group tag.

Peace Love Music and Air Hockey

Peace Love Music & FoosballWaiting is always hard, especially when I’m waiting for Blue to get home so I can attempt to beat him at air hockey. The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ocacin, EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Hunt HintThe Bold LlamaTake a left hand turn and head strait back into the 70s. I heart 70s and Mustang Cars.

Celebratory Cupcake

Cupcake

Hello to the Fabulous in the land of pixels. I come to you with free gifts and a sugary sweet cupcake. I also might have had more coffee than usual today. The prizes in this post are my cute floral top/dress from American Bazaar, this cute hair-do by Limerence, and an Anniversary cupcake by Focus Poses.

Cosmopolitan Sales Room Anniversary Gifts

How about that, Cosmopolitan Sales Room is celebrating an Anniversary, and we are all invited! Most of the many participating designers in this round have generously placed out a free gift to help celebrate. The gifts require the free-to-join Cosmo event group. Once you’re wearing your tag you just need to click the sparkly gold gift boxes to get the free gifts. I picked up this cute hairstyle by Limerence. It’s called Diza, and it comes in a “Special” color pack. I tinted mine to this dark brunette shade using the Limerence hud. I also got this tasty cupcake from the Focus Poses gift. This delicious freebie includes the pose as well.

American Bazaar 

I love the casual yet put together look of this loose fitting floral top/dress by American Bazaar. Look at those buttons! It the group gift for the month of May. It claims to be a dress, however it’s a tad sheer in places, and a little short, so I threw on some denim shorts and wore it as a top instead. I think it’s too cute to pass up however you want to wear it. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

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