Swim With the Turtles

Swim with the Turtles

Last weekend I went on holiday and decided to take a little swim with the turtles. Look how cute the big guy is in the background! I think he wanted my delicious ice cream. This is my shot from my trip, and this memory sure is a keeper!

More Steals at the Good Vibes Hunt

Today I am showing off the Good Vibes Hunt items from Beautiful Dirty Rich (B.D.R), which is one of my fave stores on the grid. This set was perfect for my summer holiday. Each hunt item costs 25 Linden, and the details of the hunt item you’re looking for and the prizes can be seen in the hunt key below. I am showing the ice cream, the coverup, the shorts and one of the bikini tops. The Good Vibes Hunt ends on August 14th, so there’s only a few more days to snatch up these prizes!

Mandala On Your Mind

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Happy Friday, Fab Free! By now you have probably figured out that I love free gift cards and free credits. I guess they are my weakness. Well, there is good news I will share with you today that fulfilled my weakness spot this week. I will tell you how to get a free 300 L store credit offer, and a free 500 L gift card. One of these offers expires today, so go ASAP!

Say What? Free 300 L gift credit!

The four stores run by Monshine Allerhand are giving away 300L free credits to all members of their subscriber system. Simply subscribe to their stores for free, and then you will receive the credit gift. The four stores you can claim your credit gift are: Vaxer, Gaall, Sweet Temptations, and Chic and Shoes. You can pick up your free credit at any of these locations, but when you click the subscriber just select which store you would like to spend your credits at. You can only spend the credits at one of the stores, so choose wisely! Examples of products from each store can be seen on Moonshine Allerhand’s flickr page. I selected Vaxer as my store of choice and I purchased the India set, which is really cute. I love the shorts especially. The credit offer expires on August 31st, so you have until the end of the month to collect and spend your credits. This free credit offer is often offered every few months, so once you become a subscriber to the stores you should receive notices of when it will be available again. Have fun with it!

More Gift Cards!

Another store which currently has out a free gift card is QUERT. A 500L gift card is on offer there today, which you get when you join their free group. I love the face tattoos sold by QUERT, such as this Mandala face tattoo for Genus heads. The gift card is available only until the end of today, August 7th, so head over there quick and spend your card!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

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!

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.

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
