Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Nautically Inclined

Nautically Inclined

Ships Ahoy! Look out for land! I admit in real life I never learned to swim, but that never kept me off the boats. I’ve always had a love for boats and everything nautical! I love to fish, rather it be small ponds or deep sea fishing. And you’ll never catch me passing up a boat ride. So this outfit I ran across today, had me really smiling!

Ready to sail.

I’m ready for sailing weather, or even to sit dockside, in my new Sailing Day Outfit by Tam. It only cost me 1L and a little hunting time as part of the June Effects Hunt. I went to the Tam main-store and hunted down the little life preserver and the shorts and top were mine!

It comes in a variety of sizes including:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS- XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Worth mentioning!

It’s over the 75L limit, but I know you’ll forgive me when you see the deal that I got on my hair! I stopped by the Hairology event which began on June 10th and visited the EMO-tion’s booth. Hair at this booth is 50% off, and I picked up my new Claudia hairstyle for just 122L per pack. It was such a good deal that I wanted to share it with you, even if it was over the usual limit, in case you are a hair fanatic like moi!

Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It will be back to school soon in my neck of the woods and lots of people are gearing up for that time of year. I wanted to enjoy some last minute beach time before it became “hitting the books” time. So I checked out the Pool Party Hunt to see what I could find and struck gold (or in this case black and white!) with this amazing one piece suit from Lady Dragon’s Design.

This retro look one piece suit is part the creator’s 1L offering as the hunt prize and comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Maitreya and Slink. (While you are there, be sure to pick up the Women’s Stuff Hunt gift which is also out for only 1L — you’ll get a gorgeous full outfit that includes slink shoes!).

Speaking of “Back to School” — be thinking of all those cool Back to School photos you’ll want to enter into the Back to School FabFree Photo Challenge! Details were posted by our lovely Julianna [here].

Have a great day!

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Summer in December

We are all used to Christmas in July, so how about Summer in December! After all, it’s Second Life! And it’s warm somewhere on the globe, right? There are plenty of beaches where you can show some skin, so I’ll show you where to find some skin to show!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 1

Al Vulo is an old favorite of mine, and this classic skin called Celestial – Diva Olive is FREE with your FREE group join if you stop by the store. It’s an oldie but goodie with dramatic make up and glossy lips that just make you want to pucker up! It comes with appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Slink hands and feet, and Lolas too!

And check out the hair?! Diva for sure! Though it’s actually called India and is a Midnight Mania Board Prize currently at Besom. This gorgeous hair is yours FREE if you slap the board and lock it down, and the Besom group is FREE to join!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 2

If you are looking for a skin that has mature facial features, great details on the body (just look at that navel!) and lovely hip bone shadowing, then this gift skin called Lorna at New Faces is for you! This is another FREE gift with your FREE group join at the New Faces main store. Their are also some lovely make up gifts out there for you to pick up as well! This skin comes with a FREE sample shape as well, and if you want appliers you can pick those up in the store for reasonable prices.

Want to travel back in time instead? I found this great little gem of a necklace at Pixel Box. It looks like a compass but will also hold a photo. I popped into their main store and was able to buy it for just 50L. Many offerings their in store were 50L or less. And there was tons of gorgeous stuff. Well worth the stop!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 3

Deesses Boutique is offering a lovely group skin at the moment called Anika. It includes appliers for Slink hands and feet and there are appliers in store for all of your other applier needs! This skin is FREE with your group tag. The group is 99L to join, but includes monthly gifts – there have been several times lovely mesh clothing has even been included in the monthly round up of goodies! – so the small fee is worth your while.

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 4

Are you loving this skin in the picture above? Me too! Stop by LoveMe Skins and it is yours FREE with your group tag if you join the group FREE too! This gift box contains the skin Kathleen in two skin tones (Tan or Sunkiss – Astrid is wearing Sunkiss in the picture above), two cleavage layers, two lipsticks, a free shape, and appliers for Slink hands and feet! What a deal!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 5

We all know the girl who just can’t get a tan no matter how long she is in the sun. Yup! That’s the skin I’m sporting for this last great find! If you join the Mystic Canvass group FREE and stop by their store, you can pick up this gorgeous FREE group gift skin called Xen. Xen comes in 4 skin tones (Astrid is wearing Snow – the palest of the four) and the gift package includes appliers for Phat Azz, Lolas, Slink hands and feet, as well as two cleavage options for each skin tone and two eyebrow options (Classic or Dramatic). This would make a terrific roleplay skin if you are not wanting that ‘needs a tan’ look! 😛

Were you admiring my beach wear? For just 75L per piece, you can dive into this deal on the MarketPlace and get this lovely Classic Bikini Bottom in Blue Stripes and/or the hawt to trot matching Halter Bikini Top, also in Blue Stripes. Just Because has swimwear (most all the pieces for 75L each) in different styles and colors for mix and match wear! A steal!

Hey Miami Beach, I’m coming!

Assimetric Colors

Enjoy the summer!

Kissus, kissus!

Having a Faboo Summer!

FABOO bikini

FABOO Pareo

Hello Fabulouses! With less than a month left of summer, I thought it best to show some sexy beachwear from FABOO. Both the Pareo and the Bikini are free group gifts, the Bikini also comes with Tango Appliers. In the store there are group gifts for men plus 2 lucky chairs. The prize inside the chairs is a selection of 15 bikinis, 10 of which are exclusive to the chairs, Tango Appliers can be purchased for 50L each (just IM grizel.halberstadt).

The beach necklace I am wearing is from boing fromage, it’s another one of my staples, as it can be easily modified to match whichever outfit I choose to wear. In the second photo I have on the Zuris-Star-Fishy-Collection which is no longer available for free as it was a hunt item, however it can be purchased from Zuri’s Jewelry on Marketplace.

Zuri’s in-world store has three offerings for the fifty5 Thursday promotion and the group gift is the Eclipse Pink Swirl set which includes 2 pairs of earrings, a necklace and a bracelet. The group is 99L to join. Currently group members wearing the tag will receive a 25% refund on items purchased from the 1st and 2nd floor from single vendors only.

P.S. Next time we’re going retro so grab your saddle shoes, practice the Fonz “Heyyyy” and I’ll pick you up in my pink Cadillac!

Until then, XOXO Hara
