Early Monday Morning Sunrise

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! It’s a bright and early Monday Morning and I’m spending my day with this glorious sunrise on the beach. I love how the lovely pinks, oranges and pinks in the sky reflect on the water. This is just the perfect way to start the day…

Good Vibes

This cute bikini is another version of Vinyl’s Torte Bikini that Aline blogged about earlier last month. This black and green ‘kini has the slogan “good vibes” printed on the booty, which is an added piece of cuteness. The swimsuit is free when you join Vinyl’s group, which is free to join. This gift is available at the Vinyl main store, and you can grab several other free group gifts on their gift wall too.

Sizes included:

  • Alice
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Mix n’ Match

After trying on this great bikini, I decided I wanted to turn it into a full summer outfit by adding a wrap-around skirt, which was perfect for lazing around at the beach and in the sun. I took the skirt from the Calypso outfit by Hilly Haalan, a three-piece set you can find for free in their gift room, which is in its own building near the landing of the sim. To grab this set, simply join the Hilly Haalan group for free and collect all the gifts in the building.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Put it all together and the look is perfect! I hope you love it too. Plus, it’s all free! Yay!

Have fun, Fab Free!

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!

The Waves

Waves

It’s Bikini season, and definitely time to chill at the beach. I love the waves at Kanaloa Beach in the background- they just look so majestic and epic. Waves of the ocean are just one of those things that make nature so beautiful.

Free Bikinis at the Resort

You by GeMyles has a Stay at Home gift out at their beach resort  which is free for all for 0 Linden. The gift is the Tiera Bikini & Sarong. The bikini comes in a lovely light blue colour with a blue-and-white striped sarong. It’s very cute, and great for a day at the beach.  In addition to this Stay at Home gift, there is another free bikini on offer at the resort which you can get by joining the free GeMyles Romantic Beach resort group. Their gift definitely shows a LOT less skin than this one, but if that is your thing make sure you snatch that up too! Please note that the GeMyles Romantic Beach resort is an A-rated sim.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique& Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Fitmesh (XXS, XS, S, M, L)

Hands Up

This great pose is currently free on Psycho’s marketplace store. I really love the pose, and it worked perfect for this shot! Enjoy the free gift!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Island Life

Island Life

It’s swimsuit season and I’m all for it this year. I wasn’t kidding when I said I have been seriously enjoying some of the island life here in Second Life. That said, I was super excited about Bombshell’s free gift at FaMESHed. This gorgeous bikini comes in this patterned version shown, and a solid version in the same baby blue color. To get yours, you’ll need to join the FaMESHed event group, which is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag. There are a few free gifts at this round of FaMESHed, but this one is my personal favorite. Enjoy!

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!

Swimsuit sizes Included:

  • His – Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature Gianni, Slink, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer
  • Hers – Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), eBody (Curvy, Classic), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

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

Attack of the Clothes

I decided that I was going to do some spring cleaning, maybe change my clothes over to the ‘warm weather’ selection (a brave choice I know) but I did briefly glimpse some sun a few days ago. As I was cleaning out my closet this lovely set fell right on my face, well let me tell you that is a sign! So a quick change and straight onto the balcony to enjoy the warmth for as long as it lasts.

Savage clothes attack aside…

In.Sanity has a cute print bikini set as a group gift for all of you. Just pop by and make sure you are wearing their group tag, free to join!.  It’s definitely worth your while to take a moment to drop by to grab this hot little number.  This cute print bikini is sized for the following bodies:
