Good Vibes and Lemonade


The Pier

Hi Fab Free’rs! Can summer please come a little faster?! I keep daydreaming of fun outdoor activities by the water on a warm sunny day. Until that sunny summer day we at least got the Good Vibes Hunt happening in Second Life to keep us occupied. The Good Vibes Hunt takes place on a beautiful richly decorated summer time sim. It’s worth it to just visit the setting, the “Good Vibes” theme is definitely present. The Good Vibes Hunt prizes are 25 linden or less (most appear to be 25L) and each participating shop has a minimum of 5 prizes hidden around the sim. Also, what summer day would be complete without something ice cold and refreshing? None that I know of! To finish off this summer look, I picked up some free group gift lemonade at Micamee. Keep reading for all the details!

For this post I hunted down a few of the Good Vibes Hunt prizes from Loki, and one of the prizes by Go&See. Both shops have their items set at 25 linden each. The clothing items from Loki are fit for Maitreya Lara bodies only. The eyes are appliers for Catwa eyes, or Genus eyes. The gacha keys are included below so you can get a look at what each shop has to offer. Pru is wearing item 01, and 06 from Loki, and item 02 from Go&See. Also, the eye appliers from Go&See are separate, there are 5 Catwa eye appliers, and 5 genus eye appliers, so be sure to pay attention to what is in the hunt prize before you buy it!

Lastly, lemonade! I was poking through some pose shops, and found my way to Micamee. There are a handful of pose gifts at Micamee that are free to group members. Pru’s delicious looking lemonade is part of the “Lemonade Potion” gift. This gift includes a right and left hand held lemonade with no pose, and a right and left version with a static hold pose. The Micamee group is free to join.

Shipwrecked in Paradise


Shipwrecked

Hello Fab Free’rs! I was away for the weekend and I’m sincerely glad to be back. I love this little romper by Canimal. Truth told, despite how much I adore sweater weather, there’s a part of me that is actually starting to look forward to summer again. I’m also sincerely enjoying this cheeky red hairstyle by CHAIN. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get both for free or almost free!

The Romper – Incase you were not aware, Canimal has several lucky letter boards on the second floor of their main location. There is no group required for these boards. The adorable “Paradise” romper Pru is wearing is one of the items you can win should your letter appear. Nothing screams summer quite like a tropical print. This lucky letter board freebie at Canimal comes in a single mesh size and has a texture change hud with several tropical prints to choose from, and one that’s bananas. No really, the print is bananas. hehehe If I had to guess I’d say the size is a Maitreya Lara fit, though it’s not marked that I saw.

The Hairstyle – Even though red hair is usually Juli’s department, this style by CHAIN was too cute to pass up. It is their most recent group gift. This cute bob hairstyle comes with optional hairclips, and a color change hud with several pink and red hues. The CHAIN store group does have a 1 time join fee of 99 linden. Once you’re wearing your group tag, you can pick up this group gift as well as several others still available. Also there are 3 lucky letter boards you’ll have access to.

Hello Fab Free’rs! We survived Monday! I think that in itself is worth celebrating. I don’t know about you, but I like to treat myself with some shopping, especially when the shopping doesn’t really cost much. Right now you can pick up a set of adorable summertime themed tanks like the one Pru has on for free with your group tag at Hot Elegant Clothing (HEC). This group gift comes in a few different sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s also a fantastic color/texture change hud that not only allows to pick from several preset color/image options, it also lets you choose the opacity of the top, and toggle on or off the full bright option. I love the version Pru has on. It says “One in a Melon.” What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good pun. To get yours simply head over to HEC and join the in-world group. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your HEC group tag.

I Come From the Water

I Come From the Water
Hello Fab Free’rs, Happy Sunday-fun-day! I hope everyone has been having a good weekend. Mine has been great so far. Today I am so excited to tell you about the free August Subscriber gift from BYRNE. This gorgeous peacock feather print summer dress is this month’s free gift, and I can’t say enough nice things about it. The skirt is sheer from the upper thigh down, and has a hi-lo type look. I’m sure there’s a name for this type of skirt, but I am not up on my fashion terms. Maybe that’s a sign I need to have some intellectual curiosity here!

So of course I wore this dress to the beach, the colors and the feathered pattern gave me some tropical summer feels. This peacock dress from BYRNE was sent out a few days ago to all Subscriber members. If you missed it just head over to BYRNE and click the subscriber. You might have to rejoin. Subscribers can be tricky sometimes, like anything in Second Life! ha The dress comes in several sizes and includes a head scarf not shown in the photo.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pool Side

Pool Side
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m glad you’re here. This cute little pup and I have been having some fun by the pool. Being pools side gave me the perfect excuse to wear this cute little outfit from Tiar. It’s one of the many current Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. I also picked up this cute upper-body tattoo by Primal on the Marketplace after Love pointed it out to me. I really like the freckle-like hearts. I hope you enjoy these fabulous freebies!

The Outfit – This cute little two-piece is perfect for lounging by the pool or walking along the beach. It comes in several mesh sizes and is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. You can pick it up at Tiar while wearing your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. At the Tiar landing point you can take the teleporter to the gifts area, or just head strait to the back of the store. This Fab Free gift along with a gift for the guys is waiting with the Tiar group gift, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Tattoo – I really like that this tattoo by Primal gives you little hearts across your chest and shoulders, as well as on your hands. I think it’s a very dainty tattoo. It is free on the Marketplace. With this free gift you’ll get Omega appliers and classic system layers in Faded, Normal, and Fresh options. The system layers make this tattoo suitable for classic avatars as well as mesh.

P.S. Two of the pool-side props are Marketplace freebies/cheapies I wanted to let you in on as well. I’ll link them in the credits with their cost so you can pick them up as well!

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

You #SHOOK Me
Hey there Fab Free’rs, as always I am so glad you’re here! My long week is finally starting to wind down, and I am excited to share with you some awesome group gifts and this pretty Lucky Letter board hairstyle. The group gifts from #SHOOK have me all shook up, pun intended! I’m also pleased as punch with this free Lucky Letter board hairstyle from Little Bones. Thanks to the lovely Grace for the teleport when my letter came up!

The Hair – So either I had forgotten or maybe they are new, I’m not sure, but Little Bones has not 1 but 2 Lucky Letter boards that do not require an sort of group to participate in. Thanks to Grace’s thoughtfulness I was able to pick up the Winona hair pictured in “The Blondie” pack for free.

The Top & Jewelry – I’m over here singing “You #SHOOK me allll night long…” because that song is the first thing that comes to mind when I read the word “shook.” Right now you can get #SHOOK too with their 3 current group gifts. The #SHOOK group is just 50 linden to join, and you can pick up the top, necklace, and choker shown for free while wearing your group tag. The top includes a hud that lets you pick from 3 summery prints, and allows you to custom color or hide the lace edges. The transparent choker is also a free group gift and it comes in 3 variations, one with silver studs (shown), one with gold studs, and one with rose gold studs. The third group gift at #SHOOK is this tiered “Leo” necklace. It comes in 3 versions, one with a moon (shown), one with a star, and one with a heart. The necklace has a color change hud as well with 2 options for the little crystal, and several metal color options.

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.
