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…?

Lessons Learned and Freebies Found

MimisGizzaA five star resort they said!  Expansive sandy beach, luxury spa, valet service, free wifi, turn down service, air conditioning, indoor and outdoor pools as well as lush green gardens.  It all sounded so perfect for an impromptu overnight mini-vacation to unwind and be pampered.  The real excitig news is that it was HALF PRICE!  I threw some of my essentials in an overnight bag,  got dolled up for my fancypants adventure, and blew goodbye kisses to the furbabies…

I was dressed to the nines!

Thanks to a couple of fabulous freebies, I was dressed to the nines.  I had found the Tracy Strapless Dress, designed by Gizza at Mimi’s Choice priced at 0L in a gift box on the floor.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

My Snazzy Gems

This Glittz Zania Jewelry Set that includes the necklace and earrings on my avatar comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the gems, pearls and metal.  It is available as a free group gift at Tres Chic with a free group join.

Upon Arrival…

/me takes off her hat and looks around…  Am I in the right place?  I checked my phone to double check the address…  It would appear the lush green gardens are growing out of those old rusted out cars behind me and the pool as a family of ducks living in it -.-.  I have been tricked by the magic of the interwebs…  once again!  I guess it’s true what they say in regards to hotels …  You get what you pay for.  I suppose I’ll have to make the best of it!

 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….

The Next Day

MHScandalizeSnatchHope you don’t mind if I blog with my eyes closed…

UGH!  The events of last night flooded back into my brain as I winced in pain trying to hide the from the sun, which seemed to be extra bright this morning.  An afternoon of Mojitos with Pru [shown here], turned into more mojitos and a girls night out.  She is such a bad influence on me :O!  Why, oh why did I drink so  much, and since when do I dance on bars?  I better call Pru and see what other “crazy girls night out” things I can’t remember!

I did manage to shower and get dressed for the day,

but no way am I ready to be upright!  Thank goodness I had picked out today’s outfit yesterday so I could just slide into it this morning.

  • The Jeans:  I stopped by MH Unique Design and picked up these fantastic ripped denim capris that are available THIS WEEKEND ONLY as a free group gift with a free group join.
  • The Blouse:  My Suzy Tied Jersey Top is available as low as 50L in the riot vendor at Sn@tch for a limited time. TP your friends and bring the price down!
  • The Shoes:  Scandalize put these awesome Ainara Shoes for Maitreya out as a free group gift to their inworld group members (100L to join).  A texture change HUD is included!

Scandalize. Ainara (FREE)/me feels around blindly for her shades and aspirin.

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!
