Sunny Day

Sunny day chasing my clouds away

It’s another perfectly sunny sunshiney day here on the grid! So I took off to the beach… one of my favorite beaches here in SecondLife : Kona Beach and Surfing. But you can’t hit the sand without something fun to wear. I had to hit the Market Place first and boy, did I grab up a couple of bargains!

Teeny Weeny Bikini

First, my new black bikini. Not only is Kona a great beach, it has some great shopping too. This is the Women’s Black Bikini from Kona and it’s just one little Linden on the Market Place. It’s 100% appliers with a couple of little add on mesh bows. Not only do you get the black bikini, you also get a white version too.

Appliers Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

Over it all

While I was browsing the Market Place, I ran across this super cute mesh cover up dress from FurtaCor for just one more little Linden! This is the ‘Isadora’ lace dress and I think it’s the perfect little beach cover up. I guess you could think of a special someone you might like to model it for…. without the bikini….  *ahem* anyway…  Isadora comes with a HUD to choose from sixteen colors and patterns. Isadora also comes with a pair of high heel sandals to complete your look.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Sizes of Sandals

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

As with all specials and promos, these two items may not last long.  So if you’d like to add them to your closet, don’t delay!

There’s something about it, and no other body of water will do. I need the salty sea air and the rolling ocean waves. This palm tree and flamingo print swimsuit by Vicarious Youth is just to cute to not wear it out for a day in the sun. It’s one of several inexpensive finds at the VY Spring Cart Sale cart.

As shown in the above ad, the VY Lauren Swimsuit comes in several mesh sizes, including fitted mesh, and standard mesh sizes. It does not however include an alpha layer. I hope you like this super cute swimsuit as much as I do!

Take Your Demon to the Beach

Beach Imp
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been a few days since my last post, and I am happy to finally get some much needed down time.  As part of said down time, we have all heard of “Take Your Daughter to Work Day”, well I am advocating “Take Your Favorite Demon to the Beach Day” or the pool. The pool will work too. Demons are optional, but if they are anything like Pru, they are worth the effort! That said, I came across a couple of FREE group gifts at the XXX Event that are “Beach Day” worthy. On a little side note, please keep in mind that as the name would suggest this is an Adult themed event.

The Swimsuit – The unique anchor print swimsuit Pru is wearing is a FREE XXX Event group gift by Adri’s King. The XXX Event group is FREE to join, and several vendors have gifts out this round. The Adri’s King swimsuit gift comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, head over to the XXX Event, join the group and click the gift waiting for you at the Adri’s King booth.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Collar – The cute “kitty” style collar Pru has on is the XXX Event gift by NYNE. This FREE gift comes with 8 color options in a color change hud. This gift (like all the gifts at the XXX Event) will require the XXX Event group tag. As I mentioned before the group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

It’s beach weather somewhere!

Is it beach season yet_001

It’s beach weather somewhere right? And there are always beaches you can visit in Second Life when winter is getting you down! Thanks to a FabFree reader tip from Crimson, now you can have 12 free swimsuits to take to the beach with you! Read on to find out how!

If you go to Scandalize, you already know that joining the group for 100L will score you some great gifts like Aline showed you {here} and Love showed you {here}. In fact there’s a huge wall of group gifts to be had for that one small fee…

… but right now there is also an in-store Watermelon Hunt going on, no group required! It’s totally free! There are 12 little watermelons hidden around Scandalize and each one contains one of the swimsuits you see me wearing above, each watermelon is just holding one in a different color. You find the Watermelon and buy it for 0L and the swimsuit is yours, free!

While I was there I picked up a suit in grey, white (shown), aqua, and a pretty black and white zebra print. Of course there were eight more out there that I didn’t find because I got lazy and stopped looking ;P

But a girl can never have too many swimsuits, seriously!

Take Me to the Beach

Take Me to the Beach
Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. There aren’t many days of summer left, and as much as I love autumn, I always find myself dreaming of the beach. My love for the beach made the gifts featured in this post irresistible. This beach-ready outfit and the fun beach themed furniture set are all current group gifts, must-haves for the beach-lovers out there.

The Swimsuit

I think this group gift swimsuit from Tres Blah is even prettier in person than it is in photos. It’s a current FREE group gift at the Tres Blah main location. In addition to coming in many mesh sizes, it comes in several colors including black (shown), green, cherry, pink, orange, yellow, teal, and navy. The Tres Blah group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This swimsuit gift can be found on the top shelf of the shelves full of group gifts.

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

The Shoes

Right now at Slipper you can pick up these platform sandals for FREE after joining the Slipper in world group. The Slipper group is currently just 49 lindens to join. With these cute shoes is a color change hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the shoes. The hud has 16 preset colors to choose from so you can color the shoes to match virtually anything.

Shoe Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink, TMP

The Furniture

If you have a beach themed room, or would like one, this FREE gift from Koncepto is for you. The Koncepto group is FREE to join, and you will need to wear the group tag to get your gift. This generous gift by Koncepto includes the chaise lounge, sun umbrella, and the table with the fruit bowl. I think this set would be just as cute on a patio as it is indoors. The draped blanket on the chaise reads “Take Me to the Beach.” There are male and female animated sit poses in the chase, as well as PG couples dance poses, and cuddles.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

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

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello Fabulouses! I am not sure if I am just being drawn to the shimmery mermaid scale textured items out there lately or if it’s a new fad and there is a ton out there, but I am LOVING it! Last week I found a sweet mermaid scale dress [SHOWN HERE], and this week I found this Tropical Princess Swimsuit with sea siren scales!

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Appliers included:

  • System
  • Signature
  • Belleza
  • Physique
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya

She Sells Sea Shells

She Sells Sea Shells

It’s hot and sticky outside, and there’s no place I’d rather be than standing in the cool water with my toes in the sand! Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read the Fab Free blog! Today, I am happy to share with you some gorgeous FREE hair and this FREE retro swimsuit!

The current round of Hairology is a discounted round, and several of the participating designers have out FREE gifts to help celebrate Second Life’s 13th birthday! The hair Pru is wearing is from RunAway, and it’s absolutely FREE. This pretty long layered style comes in a fitted mesh, rigid mesh, and a boobs version. In the folder you’ll also find an “essentials” color hud with several color options, matching system layer hair bases, and an alpha layer. There’s no need to join a group to get this gift just head over to Hairology and click the cake in front of the RunAway booth.

I love retro swimwear, it’s flattering no matter what your size or shape. This cute little swimsuit is a FREE subscribo gift at SaCaYa. Just join the subscriber and you’ll be sent this FREE gift. The package includes the mesh swimsuit in standard and fitmesh sizes, as well as a Belleza, Slink Physique, and Maitreya fit. You’ll also receive alpha layers and a hud that allows you to do a little customizing. The hud lets you hid or show features such as the halter straps, bow, and buttons.

*** Update! 6/13 – It’s been brought to my attention that the subscribo at the landing point does not give the swimsuit gift. You will need to join the subscribo on a nearby wall with the photo of the swimsuit above it to get that gift. Otherwise you can also join the FREE in-world group to get this gift. Sorry for any confusion!

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!
