Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

WOH3 Goes to the Beach

Beach DayHello Hello Fab Free’rs! All I can say is wow, the Women Only Hunt 3 is more than worth the effort. I almost can’t believe all the beautiful hunt prizes I’ve been seeing. I’m here today to share with you three of my personal favorites from the Women Only Hunt. Kathryn blogged a few of the WOH gifts in her posts “A Lil Bit of Lace” and “Daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon.” You can check those posts out here. As for me, I’ve been dreaming of the beach something fierce, so of course I picked a few beach-items to share with you.
WOH
These fantastic nails are the FREE WOH prize at Slack Girl. They come in several sizes to fit various mesh hands. Also included is a color change hud to let you choose different color options. You’ll be hunting for a little coconut, and this one took me a minute to find. I don’t recall the exact hint, but it has something to do with locks or locked.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Vista, Tuty

Next up, the cute colorful bikini Pru is wearing is the FREE WOH from Slipper. It comes in a single mesh size, and the top can be worn separately from the bottom. There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this freebie, I felt it fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body very well. I’m not sure what the hint is here either (I didn’t pick up the hud with all the hints), but it’s always good advice to try a demo.

Finally, I could not resist these gladiator sandals from ChicChica. They are also a FREE WOH prize. Even though they are bright yellow, I want to wear them with everything in my summer closet! Look for this coconut somewhere that sparkles.

Sizes Included: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Seas the day

Hello FabFree-ers!

Seas the day

I’ve resisted disappearing to the beach for weeks now… but I can’t hold out any longer! Especially not when the Surf into Summer Hunt has such great items tempting me.  Precast Inc has supplied my stripy towel for the Hunt and it comes loaded with four animated poses. The details on the fabric are really well done and the poses are sexy without being overdone, if you know what I mean.   I’m leaving the smexy to this cute bikini from Perfect Seduction. The Sis Bikini comes in the standard mesh sizes from S-XL and has a good alpha layer. I just love the sassy fringe on the bandeau top!

The 1L Surf into Summer Hunt runs until June 21 so you’ve got plenty of time to lounge around in the sand!

The Seasons Hunt: Summer ~ Part 2

I decided to get through the rest of the hunt today – I was determined, in fact. I will admit that there are some stores that were just too good at hiding the hunt item that I skipped over them… but for the most part, I have everything – and quite a post for you although not all hunt items will be pictured.

I found these cute flats from Deco.
seasonssummerdeco_001edit

I must not have read the signs right when I got to Mocha because there’s not one but two sharks! One shark has the Under the Blue Sky skirt and the other has the Under The Blue Sky leggings! I made sure to go back once I realized my mistake and I’m glad I did! 🙂
seasonshuntmocha_001edit

This dress is from Paper.Doll. I love the summery feel to it and the belt that adds a little something extra.
seasonssummerpaperdolls_001edit

This hat is from NuDoLu and I’m not much of a hat person in RL or SL but I think it’s cute and you can’t go wrong with a straw hat in the summer.
seasonssummerNuDoLu_001edit

Of course, hunting can be a little tiring and stressful so I was glad when I found this boat at Kusshon and decided to take a welcomed nap. It comes with a scripted version for sitting, a water version, and an under water decoration so you can feel even more like you’re floating on a lake.
seasonssummerkusshon_001edit

I found this casual tank at Young Urban.
seasonssummeryoungurban_001edit

I was really excited to find the gift at Lisp but now I don’t know how I’ll choose which colors to put out because they’re all cute! Each chair has a different design and a pillow to match (or a plain pillow) for sitting and a frame. And it comes with a guitar for playing so you can feel like you’re sitting around a fire singing camp songs.
seasonssummerlisp_001edit

I found this tank at Nanuk and it’s another casual tank, perfect for a trip to the beach. And I’ll let you in on a little secret… Nanuk has two sharks out! The other shark has a pair of eyes.
seasonssummernanuk1_001edit
seasonssummernanuk2_001edit

I found this cute cardigan and shirt at Boye (no longer in the hunt) and these trousers were found at Kyoot. This was an unplanned outfit but I think it works. 😛
seasonssummerboyekyoot_001edit

These frames were from North West and come individually so you can arrange them anyway you want.
seasonssummernorthwest_001edit

I found another pair of eyes at ID that come with a regular version and a prim version (I’m wearing both).
seasonssummerID_001edit

Sur+ has a cute body suit that comes with the seamed version and a simple version (not pictured).
seasonssummersur+_001edit

I found these jeans at Suzy and thought they went well with a bikini for a just-off-the-beach casual feel.
seasonssummersuzymilkmotion_001edit

This athletic outfit is from This is Fawn and seems like an outfit that should become a must-have of summer.
seasonssummerthisisfawn_001edit

I found these pants at Willow… and I’m definitely seeing a pattern of casualness this summer. Willow also included a farmers tan so it feels like an authentic summer because no summer is complete without a sunglasses tan and rosey cheeks.
seasonssummerwillow_001edit
seasonssummerwillow_002edit

This adorable rainbow skirt from So Many Styles that I’m kind of growing attached to.
seasonssummersomanystyles_001edit

And finally, I found a cute patio table and lantern at Theosophy.
seasonssummertheosophy_001edit

The hunt ends on the 30th so be sure you get out there
and grab these gifts before it’s too late!

The Seasons Hunt – Summer: Part 1

I’ve looked forward to this hunt for so long since just about every designer I love is a part of it! The seasons hunt is in no order and the site has a list of stores with the slurls so you can jump around to your favorites or skip stores and come back later. There are no hints just pure hunting, and believe me, some were hidden in very clever places. I’ve only done a fraction of the hunt since it started today (and you better believe I was out there at 12am slt) and it seems to be a very popular hunt. There are 76 stores in total and you can find them on The Seasons Hunt blog.

The first item I’m going to show is from Tres Blah perfect for fun in the sun… and maybe a little too much fun in the sun since it comes with a sun burn and sun screen. :S
seasonshuntsummertresblah_001edit

Then somewhere along the way, I found this Linen Check Shirt from [pivaaca] (there’s a male and female version) and these shoes from *FIR & MNA* (also has male and female versions available).
seasonshuntsummerpivacaafirmna_001edit

I found awesome eyes (with two versions available: large and smaller w/ iris border) at =Hoot= and the Ikat bikini at Doppelganger Inc.
seasonshuntsummerdoppelhoot_001edit

I found this Sailor Tankini at Fr.Day which is a store I’ve blogged multiple times and was excited to see on the list!
seasonshuntsummerfriday_001edit

And then I found this jumping rope with animations at Magic Nook …I think it took me 5 tries to get a good picture of it. 😛
seasonshuntsummermagicnook_001edit

The hunt item was sent out in The Season Hunt(ers) Group yesterday with a cute animation.

Animal beach fun with MELA´S elephant, a WESTY and a BABY MONKEY

Westy, BM, mela´s, AdenIt´s still winter. But spring has decided to make a short trip to Vienna today. A balmy wind is blowing, sun is shining … and my head is aching *lol* Best I can do is spending my time in SL on the beach with all my animals 🙂

The first animal I`ve grabbed at mela`s in La Reina. There´s a new skin line (check it out, please!) and one free skin – mela´s elephant skin. Again well done! It´s pictured inside melas´s shop on the wall marked with ” O L”.

mela´s elephant skin freeBM free strappy bag

The hair I´m wearing is Camie in hazel by ADEN (it was a group gift, please don´t hit me if its gone …..).

Next I tped over to WESTY´s to get a free white swimsuit as well as the short jeans and the red top (cute, I love this outfit) and the black knit sweater (in case for cold winds are blowing again). Also, there are free masks and a free case (not shown). The freebie boxes are sitting on the ground inside the wide store (in the back part of it, near the pool). Your landingpoint should be almost in front of them.

Westy, BM, mela´s, Aden

Last but not least I stopped by at BABY MONKEY´s again. I received a group notice and it sounds very good. To get your free strappy mules and matching bag you have to wear your group tag. The freebie box is sitting inside the store (as usual a big brown box with a baby monkey on it). The sunglasses are a groupgift.

It´s a magical bag! Touch it and a beach towel will be rezzed. Lay down and relax, take it easy …….. life is beautiful 🙂 And if you don´t need the towel anymore just delete it.

Do a search in groups for the group called BABY MONKEY. (When I do a group search I use the phrase baby monkey and it is the 1st choice). Join this group. It is free to join. Go to the Notices. Sort the Notices by date. Go to the one dated 02/22/2008 with the subject sunglasses. Click Save Attachment. You are now the proud owner of sunglasses to wear from BABY MONKEY. This item is only going to be available as long as it is in the notice archives.
