Catch a Wave With Me

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Come on down to Basil Bay, and join me for a beach party!  The sun is shining, the sand is warm beneath my feet, and the inviting water is there to cool us off.  I brought plenty of food, a cooler full of beverages, and of course, a container full of Ripley Snacks.  (The pupster is hoping you’ll bring along some canine pals, too.)  The more, the merrier!  Now, that’s the way to spend a Saturday!

But First, a Bit of Shopping

Before you pack your sunscreen and towel, I have a couple of budget friendly finds to share with you that are perfect for a day at the beach.  Since showing a bit of skin is part of the package, I decided to add some new body art that I picked up at the Jersey Shore for just 10L.  The Troy Lite Tattoo covers both my arms with intricate designs.  I really like the diamonds at the edge of my wrists.  You can pick up a copy for yourself at Addicted to Ink’s stall over at the Jersey Shore.  The package includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, and Slink, and is specially priced at the event for only 10L.

Looking for a Terrific Tank?

I wanted everyone to be able to see my new tats, so a tank top was the way to go for the day.  Luckily, I discovered a specially priced one at Redangel Designs.  Right now, the shop is offering the Arnold Tank at a reduced price specifically for members of the Redangel Designs group.  Normally sold for 499 Linden dollars, for a limited amount of time, members can purchase this top for just 50 Linden dollars.  The package includes fits for classic and mesh bodies, as well as a texture change HUD with 8 color options.  That’s kind of like getting eight tops for just 50L.  Count me in!  Joining the group will set you back 25L, but that opens up six lucky chairs, a midnight madness board and a gift board which are exclusively set up for group members.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Adam
    • Aesthetic
    • David
    • Gianni
    • Jake
    • Slink
    • TMP

Those Eyes

Take in All the Sights

Of course, ya gotta be able to enjoy the panoramic vistas of the beach, and what better way to do so than through a new pair of peepers?  The other day, Kat shared a cute crop top in honor of Pride Month, but for me, I’m gonna show my support every day, ALL month long with my new Pride Eyes that I picked up as a free group gift over at the Madame Noir Store.  With both mesh and applier versions for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, these eyes are quite versatile.  Using the included HUD, you can select either large or small irises.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Madame Noir Store group, but it’s completely free to join.  I don’t know how long these will be available, but if you are looking for some vibrant and colorful eyes to sport, I’d recommend a trip over to the Madame Noir Store.

So, what time can I plan for your arrival?  I’ll be here all day, just taking in the rays, grilling some burgers, and looking forward to catching a wave or two.  I hope you come on down!

Black Beauty in June

Make a Statement
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Maybe it’s just me but once in a while I still have a thing for what most would call “statement” jewelry. I don’t mean statement in that it has actual words but in that the jewelry its self is a statement. The recent free Subscriber gift from Graffitiwear definitely fits that description.

I really like the almost tribal feel of the necklace and the inclusion of a dainty floral pattern in this jewelry set. The free set from Graffitiwear includes earrings, bangles, and a necklace. Also, each piece has resize scripts for easy fitting. If you’re not already a Graffitiwear Subscribo member, you can join at the Grafftiwear main location. Already a member but missed the gift? You can still rejoin and get the gift for free!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Watch The Wind Blow By

Watch The Wind Blow By

Oh hi there. I’m just enjoying the view and the breeze blowing in from the ocean, and thinking long thoughts. For instance, whose genius idea was it for the tooth fairy to come get teeth from under a kid’s pillow? Like really? Shouldn’t that first parent have been like, “let’s put the tooth in the living room, way far away from the sleeping child’s head and the tooth fairy can get it from there” or something? Because that would make my life a whole lot easier. This totally random thought is brought to you because my oldest child lost her first tooth last week. Wow I have digressed a looooot from the things I wanted to tell you about. Let’s get back on track!

No Long Thoughts Needed!

This free and super cute romper from Scandalize was a no brainer, even for me! I love the hood and how the back is kind of pushed up. The front is to die for as well with a super sexy neckline and a really cute tie at the waist. It’s perfect beachwear for when you’re not in the mood for a bikini. To gets yours, tp over to Scandalize. Right out front there’s a sign that you can click on to join the Vanity Event group (free to join) and then right above that are your free goodies. You’ll get the pale pink version that I’m wearing as well as one in ombre, both sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Wind Blown Locks

My hair is a freebie too! It’s an in-store gift at Exile, and perfect for when you need that swept away look.

Strike a Pose

Wait, one last thing before you go get your cute outfit and hair! I’m sure you’re already a member of the FabFree group so this one will be simple. [west end] has a great pose pack, including the one I’m using here, in their mainstore as a FabFree free group gift. You’ll just need to active your FabFree group or join for free if you’re not a member yet and go click the vendor.

TGIF at the Beach!

A little bit of boho_001

I’ve been craving a day at the beach for a while… being landlocked in the middle of the USA… but I’m not exactly a swimsuit kind of gal. This pretty boho skirt with its strappy top was just the perfect answer to my mood. I also picked up a beautiful wavy hairstyle to compliment the look but you’ll have to act fast and pick it up today, as it is a Friday only steal, deal!

Hair first! ~ time sensitive!

Pick up my pretty wavy hairstyle at Exile for only 50L today for 50L Friday. You’ll get a regular mesh style as well as a bento style that waves in the wind. You can pick up a pack of natural colors or a pack of pastels, each for just 50L. I fell in love with this pretty style and couldn’t pass it up. It fit my relaxed mood today just perfectly. The weekend is almost here after all!

Continuing the World Tour…

I wasn’t done with the World Tour Hunt. I’ve already showed you several great prizes and when I ran across the 2L gift at Prism, I knew I had to share it with you Fabulous readers. This gorgeous boho feel skirt and top are meant to be worn on breezy days at the beach or… anywhere really.

Dress sizes available:

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

I’m Done Adulting, Let’s Be Mermaids!

mermaaidswimmysuit

Good morning FabFree!  It’s here – It’s finally here…  The first day of The Sunny Side Up Event @ The Wash, where you’ll find a whole sim full of 10L items all in a sunshiny theme (and some 50L features too)!

I’d rather be a mermaid

I could hardly wait for the event to start so I could show you this sexy mermaid swimsuit available on the Emerald Couture display.  The Mermaid Ariel suit is applier based and includes the appliers listed below as well as a pair of matching Wedge shoes for Slink High Feet.  I wanted to get up nice and close so you could see the shimmery texture of the suit so the shoes unfortunately are not in the shot, but they have the same matching mer-scale print on them so you can glam up your beach look if you like.  You’ll get both the suit, and the shoes… for the low price of 10L!

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Omega

Chilly Gray Dawn

Gray Dawn

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  It was a bit of a chilly spring morning, so I sure was glad to have my new warm sweater and vest combination to wear on my walk with Ripley.  This lovely top is the latest free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Loordes of London, and it can be worn solo as a dress or paired with leggings as I chose to do for my photo.  I love the deep crimson hue of the sweater and the playful folds in the extra long vest.  The free Exeter gift box includes sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body versions.  At first, I didn’t think I would be able to use this cute combination because there wasn’t a copy specifically made for the Maitreya mesh body, but by wearing the Freya style and adjusting my alpha layer, I achieved a perfect fit.   I’m so glad I was able to pick up this cozy top/dress for the grand total of zero linden dollars!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!
