Welcome to the Sun


Freespirits

Namaste Fellow Fab Free Flower Children, and welcome back to the blog! Spring is officially here and the dollarbie Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute had me feeling like a free-spirit so I grabbed my guy Blue once again for a groovy adventure. It was a lot of fun teaming up with him again to try and capture the feeling of such an iconic time period. His tie-dye shirt, and Pru’s long skirt and halter top are both part of the same hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute.  I hope you enjoy this 1 linden Boho Hunt gift as much as we did.

His Tie-Dye Shirt – Nothing says “Free Spirit” more than tie dye if you ask me. This long-sleeve tee is the gift for the guys in the Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars. To get your copy just look for the Boho Hunt object, a cute little llama, at Fukin’ Cute and purchase it for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Nardcotix David, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Niramyth Aesthetic, Slink Male, TMP, Absolute Creations Adam

Her Skirt & Halter Top – Something about the green and white mandala-like pattern on this outfit by Fukin’ Cute just feels like spring. The outfit is the female part of the 1L Boho Hunt gift at Fukin’ Cute. With this outfit you’ll get the skirt and top in several sizes. I like the idea of being able to wear the top and skirt separately. All you have to do is find the Boho Hunt llama and purchase it for 1 linden to get your copy.

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

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

It’s Five O’clock Somewhere

18-01-24

It was one of those nights…

I got home from work and ditched the work clothes and put on something more comfortable and headed straight for the bar. It doesn’t happen very often, but every once in a while, after a very long and trying day, I need a beer or two to wash away the day’s worries and just relax, even if it is just for that little bit of time.

Pour me somethin’ tall and strong…

Today’s look comes straight from The Free Dove. There are several new gifts in the men’s section and I picked up a few to try on myself.  My shirt, the George Tank, a gift provided by *Serendipity* and the BHB Shorts both come in the following sizes:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

The George Tank also comes in two styles, tucked and untucked. It’s best to be comfortable when throwing back with a beer or two.

♫ It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care
It’s five o’clock somewhere ♫

Have Lens, Will Travel

Have Lens, Will Travel

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” 

Imogen Cunningham
1883 – 1976

I sometimes feel like I’m on the quest for my next photograph before the last one I took has been uploaded. But I say that in a good way. With each snap of the shutter, the better I become at my craft. I suppose the favorite thing about photography is that it takes me to places I’ve never seen before and through it, brings you there with me…..

Point and Shoot…

Today, I’m featuring a FabFree Group Gift from Zendra.  The Camera Necklace is FREE to our group members and our group is always FREE to join. The camera includes a texture changing HUD if you want it to be a color other than basic black. This is a must have for any photographer or tourist.

Digitally Delivered…

To pick up these group gifts, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me

It’s a beautiful morning…

…at least in Second Life. It’s a bit overcast and rainy in my neck of the woods. While checking on the horses this morning, I stopped for a rest on one of my hay carts and a little bird flew down and kept me company on my respite….

Fully enMESHed…

I’m acclimating to my new look very easily. I really thought it would be more traumatic than it has been (ok… trying the demos WAS a bit traumatic). But now that I have been fully enmeshed, I want you show you a FREE hunt gift from the enMESHed Into Spring 2017 Hunt. I found the blue egg hunt item at Fearsum and won the 2 Tone Sweater as a prize. Since I was feeling lucky, I stopped by BHB and tapped a few of their FREE, no group to join, Midinght Mania Boards and woke up this morning to a new pair of Dempsey Boots. These boots are perfect for my morning chores or a night out for line dancing. (like she’d EVER go line dancing, just sayin‘). And ladies, these boots are unisex so try to win a pair for yourself.

My little friend is telling me it’s time to get back to work. Later, ya’ll.

Can you have too many shoes? Nahhhh!!

Hello again! I said I’d be back with a second footwear post, didn’t I, so here I am! Are you loving all these shoes being shown, I sure have been. My shoe folder in my inventory is over-flowing. Now, I really could have put this grouping of shoes I’m about to show you, in with my first post, but I thought, since this post will be a one-stop shop type thing, I’d keep it separate. So, let me get right to it.

All the shoes below are WomenStuff group gifts at the ‘Stuff Lounge. So that means, they are free with your WomenStuff group tag on, which has a small L$50 join fee. Honestly though, with just these shoes alone, that fee is well worth it, not to mention all the other non-shoe gifts that are there to grab too. The name of the designer who provided the gift, as well as a description of which feet they work with, will be below each picture.

ShoeDayB_001
EMPORIUM – Abbot Heels – meant for SLink High

ShoeDayB_003
!!BHB!! CHRISTMAS TEDDY BEAR  SOCKS UNISEX – I know, these aren’t shoes…but come on, how cute are they? And, you do wear them on your feet 😛 Can be worn by Male and Female for SLink flat, TMP, as well as system feet.

ShoeDayB_004
C&F Dragon Queen Flats Slink or Regular Feet – Old Gold

ShoeDayB_005
Baro@ibp Gift Platform FlipFlops – for SLink and TMP flat, Bellezza, and Maitreya. I did not try them with system feet, but I don’t see why they couldn’t work for them as well.

ShoeDayB_006
WomenStuff gift by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes –  Cari – no feet needed with these, 2 shoe bases included with different heights.

So, let me reiterate. Head over to the ‘Stuff Lounge, and join the WomenStuff group, for L$50. You can then find the pictures of each of these shoes on the wall, and just click them to receive these lovely footwear gifts for free! See, one-stop and I got you all covered 🙂

Phew, what a great day. I’ve never seen so many shoes! I hope you all have as full a shoe folder as I do. Until next time lovelies, TTFN *waves*


The feet, legs, and pose behind this lovely footwear…

Feet and Nail Polish – SLink – Flat and High, as labelled below the pictures.
