Bloggers at the Beach

Bloggers at the Beach

It was high time to get the whole gang together and head over to the beach.  We clambered into an old beat up VW camper van for aesthetic purposes, all the pups in tow.  Of course, we packed a picnic and sang really fabulous songs from the 50’s all the way to the late 2000’s as loud as we could, with our hair blowing in the wind of our speed, all while laughing at terrible knock knock jokes and reminiscing about the magic of summers gone by.  I love it when we all get together!

Swimwear Galore

As you can see, we managed to get all our full time bloggers together for a bit of sun and sand, and a whole lot of bikinis.  There are so many nice pieces of swimwear to be had right now that we thought it would be fun to give you a smattering of what’s available on the grid so you can have a nice cross-section of goodies to choose from.  Here’s what we’re wearing:

You do know that a massive and super splashy water fight came right after this, right?

Out of the Ordinary

Out of the Ordinary

You never know when you’ll have a fancy affair to attend in SL.  They seem to pop up every night of the week, and you’ve got to be ready for ’em.  The thing is, you don’t really want to look like everyone else at said events, so it’s nice to keep an eye peeled for something out of the ordinary when you really want to stand out.  I’ve found just the thing!

Back to Queenz

As per usual, Queenz is spoiling members of their free-to-join group.  You’ve got a massive wall of gifts to grab when you get there, and this fun dress is just the latest.  I am particularly taken with the triangle cutouts down the side, since it gives the dress a sexy yet different kind of vibe.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours and is just super cool.

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

How Sweet!

Romazin are being amazin’ (see what I did there?) with their latest massive gift to members of their group.  When you join, you gain access to a box full of 11 awesome new gifts.  It’s hard to choose which one I like best, since they’re all really beautiful.  I’ve got on the lovely Cody necklace, which drapes prettily over your décolletage.  The Romazin group is free to join, so do head over to grab these lovely gifts.

Open Doors

Open Doors

The magic and mystery of opening doors!  The new year is all about celebrating the new, and I’m peeking through the doors of 2021 with a bit of hope in my heart.  One thing I know lies beyond is more freebies, something that concerns us all greatly here in the land of FabFree.  Let’s get this year started right!

The Queenz of it All

If you hurry over to Queenz, you’ll find several presents under the tree.  There are lots of lovely gowns, pretty outfits and sexy dresses to be had, all for free!  No group join required here!  I got this lovely dress there – it can be worn as both a bodysuit or a dress as both the top and bottom can be worn separately.  It also comes with a matching blazer, which is also quite nice.  No idea how long these lovely gifts will be around, so do head over there ASAP!

Sizes

  • BBL
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Jessica – 9S
  • Katena Regular
  • Maitreya

Only good things beyond these doors!

Party Prep

Party Prep

When I get ready for a Christmassy-type shindig, I put on loud music, grab a drink and then find myself a really cute outfit.  I have always loved the simplicity of a chic pantsuit, but this one is not exactly what I would classify as simple.  It has all the bells and whistles I need for the biggest parties, while still being entirely comfy.  Let me give you all the details!

Queen of Queenz

I love when Queenz puts out a new group gift, because it’s always fabulous and different.  They are also great for all the curvy avatars out there, so if you have a hard time finding clothes that fit, you should really give Queenz a try.  By joining their free group, you gain access to a pile of great outfits, and the latest is the Outre pantsuit I’ve got on.  I enjoy the addition of the fluttery trim on the jacket.  The top and pants can be worn separately, so if you really fancy a skirt with the jacket, then you can totally make that happen too.  The HUD allows you to change the colour of the pants and the jacket separately as well.  Don’t forget to pick up the rest while you’re there!

  • Ebody Curvy

Cheers!

Cool When Hot

Cool When Hot

When the weather is hot, there’s nothing more refreshing than some cold face cream.  Well, there are lots more refreshing things…but let’s just go with the cold face cream thing right now, shall we?  I’m getting ready for a night on the town, and that calls for sexy ways of staying cool.  I just happen to have a miniature fridge for just such occasions!  I don’t get ready y’all..I stay ready!

So Much

There’s always so much to look at over at The Free Dove.  Since this is one of our fave locations on the grid here at Fab Free, we’re making a bit of an effort to show you exactly what’s available right now.  I often find that when I’m looking for outfit inspiration, The Free Dove has an excellent selection of freebies for any occasion!  Just join their free group, and you’ll gain access to piles and piles of free clothes (and accessories…and hair…and…you get the idea!).  Today, I’m showing you an offering by Much Fashion – this sexy draped dress is classy yet sassy and is of course, completely free!

Sizes

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

Where’s My Crown?

Queenz just updated their group gift wall with five new gifts – all different jewelry options that will dress up any outfit.  I’m wearing the golden links choker that is free when you join their free group.  Of course, there are loads of other free goodies on the wall there too, so make sure you pick them up!

Keeping Cool

There’s a new subscriber gift over at Elm!  My little cooler fridge filled with beauty products is far too cool (see what I did there) to pass up!  When you hit the subscriber unit at Elm, you’ll get this free fridge, as well as the pile of books and plant you can see behind me as well.  Oh, and there’s also a very gentlemanly grooming kit for the guys as well!  Go check it out…it’s free!

I’m ready for my night out, are you?

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

Stay Wild, Child

Stay Wild, Child

A little madness now and then is cherished by the wisest men.  And women too, obviously.  On days when I feel bored and uninspired, the best way to kick start my motivation is to throw some crazy clothes on.  Does that work for you?

Queenz Everywhere

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  I love their urban and curve-hugging styles that always make me feel excited to get moving.  Their latest is this super cool top, shorts and panties set that come in a bunch of exciting hues.  I love the fact that the shorts are see-through, because it just adds a hint of sexiness to what would have traditionally been a utilitarian outfit.  You can get this outfit (and a pile of other group gifts) by joining the Queenz group for FREE!  You heard me boo!

Oh Man…Gula!

There’s a new subscriber gift out over at Mangula!  These chunky platforms will have you stepping in style all summer long.  The Mangula subscriber unit has a one time join fee of 100L, but you gain access to a massive pile of gifts in their main store, making the fee super worth it.  Plus, it doesn’t take up group space!  Win!  These shoes come sized for Belleza, Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink.

Go forth and be weird!

#MOOD

#MOOD

It’s the perfect day to listen to music and just generally be awesome.  I know I do that on the regular (and also I’m extremely modest), but today seems to be calling to me with the chill out vibes.  What music do you listen to when you need to chill?  I’m more of the “if I can dance to it, I like it” type, so chill music isn’t my forte.  I’m taking all your recommendations!

The Queen is Here

There’s a new awesome group gift at Queenz!  This super cool bodysuit type outfit is just what the doctor ordered for a bit of amusement.  It comes with an HUD to change the colour, as well as change the saying to several rather rude options that I thought I’d save your eyes from here on the blog!  To get it, all you have to do is join the Queenz group for free and click on the vendor.  There are loads of fun gifts at Queenz, and I’m sure you’ll have an great time trying them all out.

Empty Closets Not Allowed

Empty Closets Not Allowed

Here’s a problem I’ve never encountered:  An empty closet.  I’ve been lucky in both SL and RL to always have clothes to choose from.  I often dream about what it would be like if I had my SL inventory stuffed into my RL closet.  I’d probably need a much bigger closet.  Could you imagine such a thing?  Let’s get some more free finds to fill up that imaginary closet of yours!

Bow Down

Queenz has a new group gift!  I always love when they come out with a new gift, because it fits a wide variety of bodies from athletic to curvy, and always looks really fantastic.  You can get this fabulous bias cut dress by joining the Queenz group for free, and then clicking on the vendor.  There are loads and loads of group gifts to pick up while you’re there, so your inventory will be groaning before you know it.
