Morning rush…

While most people are still sleeping on this holiday Monday in the United States, I’m up at dawn and ready to catch a few waves before breakfast. While she’s off on her mini spa vacation, I slept in the van on the beach, just to be one of the first in the water. I’ll take a few waves then set out to all the backyard BBQs I’ve been invited to.

Stripes or solids?

I found two group gifts perfect for this mornings boarding. By joining the group for FREE at Lavarock Creations, you can pick up the Robin Male Shorts. The shorts come with a texture HUD with five different colors that you can choose between solids or stripes for ten different looks. The Robin Shorts are fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

Not a crying towel…

I also found the Tropical Beach Towel FREE group gift at ::K::. This towel comes in both male and female versions and can be worn over one or both shoulders. The towel also comes with a built in resizer to get the perfect fit. I’m also featuring another pose out of the Surf’s Up series by Le Poppycock. Amped can be won from the gacha machine for just 50L.
I’ve worked up an appetite after surfing. I hope there are ribs at the BBQ. Or at least a pulled pork sammich, maybe…?

 Not Just for the Birds

Not Just for the Birds

 

The Pen is Mightier than the Beak….

With my coffee in one hand and my notepad in the other, I decided to head out to the yard to make notes for my next post. My goal is write a post about the other group gift at Angel DELUXE that I didn’t mention in my surfing post [HERE]. As I’m scribbling notes … comes in classic avatar sizes XS-XL… comfy look and feel…. FREE to members but the group has a 10L joining fee… blah blah…. an owl swoops down and takes my pen from my hand and perches on the garden wall… FINE! You write my next post….

Please allow me to introduce myself….

I’m Owlson.  Carson has so graciously allowed me to finish his post today. (I personally think he has writer’s block) I’ve just flown in from the Tres Chic Event event that I read about from Serena [HERE] and [HERE] and Love [HERE]. While I was circling the event, I was asking HOOever was around if there were gifts that were not geared strictly for the hens. I was fortunate enough to find a flock that was looking for the same things I was.  We soared from booth to booth finding great  nest home and garden items. I’ll list them below to save you from me trying to imitate Caiben’s droll sense of humor….

  • CHEZ MOI – Teal Wooden Bench
  • [Merak] – Cup and Notebook
  • Serenity Style- Rusty Birdhouse
  • Fashiowl Poses – Happy Birthday Gift w/ Owl Pose

If you noticed, you can even get a lifelike version of me in a perched  pose position from Fashiowl. All you need to do to get these great gifts is join the Tres Chic group for FREE and wear the group tag while picking up gifts at the Tres Chic Event.
This blogging gig is easy. I wonder if they have an opening for an owl who looks better in glasses than Caiben does?

EDIT: The gift from Fashiowl is IN the owl which is an owl balloon… I still like the owl….

Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

8 bit heaven…

Yeah, I admit I spent way too much time and money standing in in front of machines just like this. If I had all the dollar bills back that I fed into that brown coin changer behind me, I could probably take a nice vacation somewhere.

Free  Replay…

I’ve been stalking frequenting the Midnight Mania Board at REBELLION and have come away with some nice gifts. Both the Denim Assault Hoodie and “Infliction” Cap were both prizes on the board. The board rotates daily with a prize for either men or women. Stop on by and give the board a tap.

Hey, does anyone have a dollar I can borrow?

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/26/2017 – Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque Exterior
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a marvelous week and a very happy Friday. I’m excited about this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday featuring Belle Epoque! If you’ve never visited Belle Epoque before, you must go. The clothing style is very unique. I think of it as softly feminine with a little bit of fantasy and some definite vintage flair. I spotted everything from casual dresses to elegant gowns. Along with a variety of women’s clothing, there is a whole room of gachas to discover. As you enter the Belle Epoque main location from the beautifully landscaped entrance, you’ll be greeted with the usual information desk. Directly to the left is where you’ll find the Belle Epoque group gifts.
Belle Epoque Gifts
There are two FREE Belle Epoque group gifts. The Belle Epoque group is FREE to join as well. A bit further to the left, you’ll see the Fab Free exclusive group gift, and a gift for Teleport Hub group members. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You may recall Edi had previously blogged the exclusive FREE gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Ice Dreams.” Don’t miss out on the opportunity to pick up these lovely gifts, and explore a shop with truly unique style!

Miami Vice

Miami Vice

 

Nostalgia – 80’s Style…

It’s been a thing lately. I’ve been yearning all things circa 1980’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’m at that point in my life I’m starting to miss all the things that influenced the person I became. I have been rediscovering the movies, the music and the TV shows. I caught an episode of Miami Vice and remembered the fashion trend that the show started. The sports jackets over pastel t shirts. Neon and pastel colors, deck shoes were all trendy fashion back in the day.

When Neons and Pastels were the craze…

My look today mimics the style that Don Johnson (Dakota Johnson’s dad, for you youngsters) made famous. I found the Daniel Blazier, a new release at A&D Clothing (not free) for that jacket over t-shirt look. I then turned to the Marketplace and browsed the Pepper store for other pieces for my outfit. The Chino Trousers in light plum (10L) and the all white Slip on Sneakers (2L) makes my 1980’s Miami look complete.

Vacation – Day 1

Vacation - Day 1

 

Sleeping in…

The first item on my summer list was being able to sleep in. And I must say it was working out simply fantastic until…. I hear the whimpering at the side of my bed.  It seems poor little Angel is not on her summer vacation schedule as of yet and thinks it’s time for me to get up and cater to her needs. I grab my clothes and look for her leash… Girl, we need to talk about letting me sleep in…

Casual Camo Cargo…

Second Life often imitates Real life in my choices of clothing. My summer choice of pants is not the standard jeans, but comfy cargos and today is no exception. I happened to touch the Midnight Mania Board at DS Mens Wear and won the Jungle Camo Outfit. There is no group needed to participate. The outfit includes a tank, cargo pants and shoes for the Aesthetic body, but other than the tank looking a little big, everything else fit perfectly on my ADAM body. The Midnight Mania board changes items with each round so stop by and see what you could win today.

We are back from our walk and I’m drinking my first cup of coffee, wide awake and ready to start my day. And the dog? She’s snoring behind my chair…. /me grumbles

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Crochet Bikini

Yellow Bikini
Oh Hello! Welcome back Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here because I’m really excited about sharing with you today. Stick with me and I’ll tell you all about these gorgeous skins, the hairstyle, and this itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow crochet bikini!

Summer is For Skin

Both of the lovely skins are FREE group gifts for the month of May at Deluxe Body Shop. Each skin comes with a classic system layer skin, and a single omega applier that will work with Omega compatible mesh bodies and heads. You’ll find both gift vendors just inside the entrance in front of the circulation desk. You’ll also need to join the Deluxe Body Shop group. There is a one time join fee of 299 linden for the Deluxe Body Shop group. While you’re there picking up  your group gifts, take a minute to click the group only Midnight Mania boards just behind the desk.

Beach Hair

I love the long beachy waves of this hairstyle by Mutiny in Heaven. Everyone can pick up this Mutiny in Heaven hairstyle for FREE exclusively at The Free Dove. The gift comes in the brunette color, and the blonde color shown. Also there are two sizes of each color. If you haven’t visited the hair section of The Free Dove lately, I’d recommend it. There’s no group to join, and you can pick up this recent addition along with several others.

Yellow Crochet Bikini

I knew I wanted to wear a cute bikini for this post, it is early days of summer and I’m longing for a trip to the beach. This applier bikini from Ashmoot is their exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The package includes appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies.

A Night at the Theatre

At the Theatre

Magical…

I enjoy the theatre. Not just the shows but the overall experience. There is something magical that happens when the lights dim and the orchestra begins to play. You are whisked away into a story, and for a couple of hours, forget your own worries…

Showstopper…

The outfit today is a real showstopper. The Alexander Mesh Outfit is a beautiful suit that will most definitely turn heads. This is a FREE group gift from Lara Augusta Carnelian. This one-piece suit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and could be used not only for a night out for a show and dancing, but also for role-play. The Lara AC group is FREE to join. I am also wearing two group gifts from Gabriel. Both the Studded Gloves and the Shearling Shoes are FREE Gifts to group members.

A Rose by any other name….

It is so glad to see that The Rose Theatre is still in existence. This a lovely building with so many intricate details that it feels like a new experience every time I visit. It does feel new, it’s been five years since i last visited.  🙂
