Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy/Legacy Perky

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

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!

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!

Live Your Best Life


Living Our Best Life

I think I’m determined to visit every seaside spot on the grid. To say I am afflicted with wanderlust would be an understatement. This time Blue discovered a beautiful little slice of paradise where we could spend the days playing in the water and the evenings relaxing deckside watching the sun go down.

In preparation for a our excursion we picked up a few of the many free group gifts at Amias. These plush towels are an absolutely must-have. They come in a his and hers version and include a texture hud with quite a few choices to pick from. They are free with the Amias group tag. Coincidentally the Amias group is also free to join. Blue happens to be wearing another of the free group gifts at Amias. His leather bracelet also comes in male and female sizes, and has a color change hud. It’s always cool to find freebies that include options for male and female avatars. Have fun everyone!

Here in the Garden

Here in My Garden

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week in June? I’m pretty sure May was the longest single month I’ve ever experienced. I’m happy to be here in the month of June. Speaking of it being a new month, that means there’s a new group gift available at American Bazaar. This pretty peachy-pink colored dress with the stylized floral print is the free American Bazaar group gift for this month. It comes in sizes fit for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Feeling cute in my new dress I decided to take a stroll through the trails at Otter Lake. There are so many lovely spots to explore there. My pose and the butterfly prop are a free group gift by Hazeel at the Pose Fair Market. The set comes with the pose, 2 versions of the butterfly prop (one transferrable, one not), and a pose-ball version of the pose. To get yours you’ll need to join the free-to-join Pose Fair Market group and stop by the Hazeel booth. There you’ll find the gift pose waiting.

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.

Need Caffeine

Need Caffeine

There are days when an extra cup of coffee or two first thing in the morning, and a mid-day pick-me-up are in order to keep me going. So when I saw this top by ZFG it made me giggle, and I knew at least some of you would relate. lol To help fend off a minor case of the Mondays I went over to the 35L Sales Event (thanks to a suggestion from Blue) and picked up quite a few of the free group gifts available, including this top. All the gifts require the 35L Sunday VIP group which is free to join.

Along with the top from ZFG I picked up this cute hairstyle from C.K., and this pretty necklace by Venge. Keep reading for more information about each of these free gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

ZFG

This shirt by ZFG is the definition of a loose-fitting comfy casual top. It’s the kind you wear around the house, or maybe with a cute sports bra to the gym. It comes in the color shown and reads “Caffeine is the Foundation of My Food Pyramid.” This gift is free at the 35L Sales Event, just wear the free group tag and click the black and red giftbox.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus)

C.K.

This high ponytail hairstyle is also a free gift at the 35L Sales Event. It’s the quintessential messy but cute up-do. It also comes with a pretty flower crown that I chose not to wear, and a color change hud with a broad range of blond, brunette, and red hair colors.

Venge

Also, I couldn’t resist the necklace from Venge. This free gift includes 3 color/texture change huds to change the chain with a choice of copper, gold, or silver. Each of the 3 huds then has a choice of 6 colors for the crystal. Just like all the gifts at the 35L Sales Event, this one is free with the event group tag.

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

Sunny Days Ahead

Sunny Days Ahead

Hello there Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got some terrible wanderlust. I’ve also been wanting a reason to dress in something nicer than sweats and oversized t-shirts. Then I realized something, we all have the perfect excuse to dress up if we want to, ourselves. With ourselves as the reason, I have three free gifts to share with you as the how. Varsity and La Perla each have free Stay at Home gifts that match well together. These free posh sunglasses by Veyard complete the look perfectly. You know how this works from here, keep reading for more information and check out the credits at the end.

Varsity

My skirt and cropped top are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Varsity. This cute and classy outfit comes in three sizes, and has a color change hud for the top and the skirt. In the color change huds there are six solid colors for the top and the same six colors for the skirt so you can mix and match. There is no group needed for this free gift.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

La Perla

These cute heels are a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. You’ll find them at La Perla. The black and gold details make them stylish and unique, the red sole makes them timeless.  These pretty shoes come in 5 sizes and should be able to be worn by classic avatars though they do not include a shoe base. Like all Stay at Home gifts, there’s no group required for this freebie.

Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya, Ocacin, Belleza, Standard Mesh L/R

Veyard

Finally, these sunglasses by Veyard were actually the inspiration for my entire look. I love the sleek black shades with the detailed gold floral accents. They are a free gift, no group needed, at the Men and Women Jail event. You can pick them up for free for the duration of the event at the Veyard booth.

Peace Love Music and Air Hockey

Peace Love Music & FoosballWaiting is always hard, especially when I’m waiting for Blue to get home so I can attempt to beat him at air hockey. The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ocacin, EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer
