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?

Finding Solace

Finding Solace

On days when RL is filled with grey clouds, and perhaps a bit of melancholy, I find solace in the beautiful sunsets and peaceful landscapes of Second Life.  There’s always somewhere to go that will bring you the peace you may need, and for that I’ll always be grateful.

Celebrate a Bit

LSR are celebrating 25000 group members with a new group gift – this sweet romper in a full fatpack of fun textures.  You’ll surely find something to love in the HUD since they range from animal print to ditzy florals and even a few flamingos, as you can see.  The LSR group is currently 99Lto join, totally worth it for access to a wall of group gifts and about a bajillion lucky boards too!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Where do you find peace in SL?

… all among the bloomin’ heather

... all among the bloomin' heather

Hey There FabFree! I am so happy to have made it to the weekend, didn’t this week just fly by? I am ready for some Grid time! One happy delight, just as I popped on this evening was receiving this gorgeous dress from the Midnight Mania boards over at Lunaria. I really got to know this designers work during the Fabulous Enchanted Forest Hunt and I was so glad I did. The clothes from Lunaria are just as enchanting as the decore.

Take this dress – “Fainche”. I am in love with it. The details and build are just as perfect as you can ask for and I love the deep greens and copper. It’s topped off with the included circlet in copper and agate and jade stones. It’s just magical. To get your own little bit of magic, just join the free Lunaria Group and slap that Midnight Mania board. There are currently three boards all loaded with beautiful things for us.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I got another happy surprise when I popped over to No_Match today. This sleek sexy hair is called “No_Thorn” and it’s a free gift for everyone, no group needed. Now the hair comes with a skinny headband that you can change the color off via HUD. But I slipped my new circlet over it. The gift includes a HUD of twenty basic colors, 2 choices for bangs and twenty colors for the headband.

As with all free gifts and Midnight Mania boards, the designers can change or remove them at anytime. So hurry hurry to add these two awesome items to your closet!

Speechless in the Sun

Speechless in the Sun

Happy Friday FabFree!  After a long week I’m totally ready for a few days of rest and relaxation in the sunshine.  I’m so tired, in fact, that I am at that point of having a hard time stringing sentences together – so instead, I’ll just stand in the sunshine and let the rays work their magic.

It’s Free!

In my meanderings, I stopped over at Evani since they have an item out for the 7 Day Sale.  While I was there I noticed that they’ve also got a free gift at the display out for everyone  – no group join required.  This top and skirt is a good summery option for hot days when you still want to look super cute.  It comes with a great customizing HUD so you can change all the different parts to a whole host of lovely shades.  Plus, the top and bottom can be worn separately.  I assume this outfit is only around during the 7 day sale, so don’t delay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Here and There

Here and There
Oh my, oh my FabFree.  I’m feeling a bit all over the place today.  What I mean by that is, that I’m not entirely certain who I feel like being.  I don’t mean my behaviour, more along the lines of “what do I want my outfit to portray?”.  So, I’m settling somewhere in between sweet, colourful, dark, magical…and whatever other adjectives you want to pile on top of those!

Feeling Belle

I headed over to Belle Époque today, and happily they have updated some of their gifts, which is always a nice surprise.  I started with their new FabFree group gift (as you know, our group is ALWAYS free to join) – which is this super cute necklace.  It comes with several different options for the texture in the middle of the pendant – I went a bit ouija today, as you can see.  While I was at it, I also picked up the new Belle Époque group gift – this really cool tied top.  You can do all sorts with it, I think, dress it up, pair it with jeans, toss it over a skirt… so versatile.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours!  The Belle Époque group is currently 10L to join, and there are a bunch of other super lovely gifts while you’re at it.

Heyo again FabFree!  I have a few lovely finds from the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt that I want to show you before they disappear – very little time left to get your mitts on these before they flicker off into the ether on the 22nd.  Don’t delay!

Amazing!

This cute top from Amazing Creations is so adorable, and I’m happy I picked it up!  It makes me think of fields of sunflowers or bouquets of cheerful yellow flowers.  Isn’t it nice?  It’s completely free – just search for our little rainbow fairy.  Don’t wait!

Floating on Air

I also wanted to show you one of the fun poses from SAPA poses – I actually had a lot of fun playing with these, they’re little floating fairy animations, so perfect for putting together an ethereal look.  I loved watching my avi float up and down in a sweet, magical way.  Each pose is just 5L!

See you next time!

The Summer of Swimwear

The Summer of Swimwear

I may just have to proclaim this the summer of the bikini!  I’ve been stocking up bit by bit on some great swimwear, and yet my hoard just keeps growing.  I love having all these different options to wear to the beach, and this one sure is a fab addition!

Happy Anniversary Addams!

The big news that broke last night is that Addams is celebrating their 7th anniversary with all sorts of awesome goodies for members of a new group they’ve just started.  The Addams VIP group is only 5L to join, and with that you’ll be able to pick up this cool bikini and shirt combo (they can be worn separately and come in a fatpack of colours).  You’ll also get 500L in store credit (click on the poster near the gift cards) as well as 10% back on all purchases made in the store (and yes, also all the old group gifts).  Woah, that’s a pretty sweet deal for a 5L group join!

Note:  You have 5 days to spend the credits from when you click on the sign… don’t forget to use them!  ♥

  • Freya
  • Isis

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

What is the one thing about the beach that you love?  Is it the sound of crashing waves?  The smell of the ocean?  Or is it some small detail, like the joy of gathering shells? Watching people?  The smell of suntan lotion?  There are so many things to love about this essential experience, but today I’ll settle for the joy of a walk on the sand with an ice cream cone in hand.

Feeling Lucky, Again

If you haven’t heard about Scandalize’s lucky boards, well I’m here to let you know that they’ve been recently updated with some new goodies.  I’m pretty sure this awesome bodysuit and shorts (which can be worn separately) is a bit older, but the top row of lucky boards are all new in celebration of their 6th anniversary.  I was a bit pressed for time, so didn’t wait until my letter A came up on the top row, but I still managed to run off with something pretty.  The Scandalize group is 20L to join, and you’ll be rewarded with frequent group gifts, and a super huge wall of lucky boards to keep you happy.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy

What’s your magical beach moment?

Different Drummer

Snapshot_021

As you might have noticed by now, I am an eclectic, off-center, quirky kinda girl.  The outfits I choose might not be the norm, or rather, the combinations I put together for outfits might not be the norm, but someone has to blog for the outcasts.  Those of us who walk to the beat of our own drummer and don’t fit in with the mainstream.

In Second Life as in real life, I’m kind of a loner.  I’m borderline hermit sometimes!  Only those who take the time to get to know me, get to see the quirky sparkle I keep hidden from most of the world.  I’m quite used to people looking at me like I am something that just dropped in from outer space that they aren’t quite sure if they approve of.  (ok that might be over use of the word “quite”).

I’ve never joined the throngs of people who hang out at clubs, or have big families in sl, I’ve mostly wandered by myself and being the way I am, its been good most of the time.  I’ve had those lonely moments we all get from time to time.

And until I became a part of fab free I’ve never had a group of friends in sl, oh sure I had a couple of short lived friends when I first started (2008!) but that was just for a couple of weeks because I worked as a dancer as a lot of us did when we started (and I was *terrible* at it and hated it!  I’m horrible at being phony) and that’s where I had the friends.

Now with Fab Free, I have a wonderful circle of ladies that I am so proud and honored to call my friends and sisters.  The awesome thing is, we are all sort of quirky and off center in our own ways and so we are all very accepting of one another.  It’s a very happy place for my soul.

I know I went off on a bit of a tangent there, but this outfit was an odd mix and it just got me thinking.  It’s an odd mix but I love the way it fits together.  I’m also a girl who loves hats in both worlds, and I loved these boots.  😉  But I know, shush now Arielle, quit rambling and tell us about the freebies n such!  ok ok!

Now back to our regularly scheduled program!

This cute dress I am sporting is a 1L find for the Around the Grid 9 Hunt created by Pearl’s Treasure Chest or PTC.  This hunt goes from July 13 to September 30 (I’m not ready for fall yet!!).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

My boots are from MOoH! They are a free Third Life Group Gift and that group is 10L to join.  They fit:

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

I hope your Monday morning is going as well as can be expected gang!  I’ll be back with more fun freebies very soon!

I Felt Like a Fairy . . .

FabFree Forest Hunt 7-2021 Telsiope and Sissy Bar

Happy Weekend Fabulous readers! The past couple of months has brought a whirlwind of events and hunts exploding with gifts and bargains. If you’re looking for something to do, go hunting for the lavish gifts in the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. It ends on July 22 so get out there & hunt! Check the hunt pics & hints here

The lovely, ethereal gown pictured on the left comes to us from The Sissy Bar – it only costs 2L. It made me think of fairies so I paired it up with these stunning wings from Telsiope’s Couture.

I liked these wings so much that I kept them on and put on the rest of the Good Fairy outfit from Telsiope’s Couture. I adore the styling and colors of the outfit, which only costs 1L.

Last but not least is this gorgeous free hair from Princess Stuff. Normally you would think – little blue haired old ladies, lol. Not with this one! It’s a really nice style and can be casual or elegant.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!
