Glam Slam

Glam Slam

Being glamorous in the summer is a tricky thing.  Pulling off makeup and perfect hair when the temperature is rising is always a difficult task.  And to top it all off, you’re in your bathing suit.  Luckily, we’ve got Second Life!  I can laze in my swimsuit, eyelashes fluttering nonchalantly without a drip of mascara running down my cheek.  And just as luckily, we have quite the wide array of bathing suits to choose from, which always fit properly – no change room horrors to be lived through with their glaring lights and unseemly mirrors!

Be the Queen

I found my bathing suit today – no change room horror to be had – at Queenz!  It’s a free group gift that comes in several different hues.  I went for the camouflage version – because why not think about the early 2000’s now and then! I particularly enjoy the straps that say “Girl Gang” on them in a very Gwen Stefani clothing line kind of way.  Join the group for free, and grab your gift (as well as a few others that are hanging out on the wall!)

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

Heel Boy!

My shoes (which of course I can wear with a bathing suit in SL…) are a group gift at Beauty Factory.  They’re the type of shoes that you can save the world in, I think – I might be wrong, but they scream power to me!  They are super low cut, showing off a bit of toe cleavage (is that a thing?) and the thin heels are simply to die for.  These pumps are sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink .  Grab yours by joining the Beauty Factory group for 99 Lindens!

Now get out there, glamour girls!

Quirk Life

Quirk Life

I’m feeling super quirky today.  Well, I mean…. I usually feel super quirky.  Today especially, because it’s Wednesday and I feel like I need to bring some pep to an otherwise exceedingly normal day.  Do you ever do that?   You know, wear a tutu or cat ears to work just to spark conversation?  I might be alone in that camp, but today in SL is a bathing suit, crazy glasses and zappy gun kinda day.  Ha!

Dive In

I’m feeling just so playful in this bathing suit group gift by Rosary.   They regularly put out really high quality gifts, and this one is no exception.  It comes with an HUD to change to various solid colours, as well as my fave part – the different patterns you can choose through the second HUD.  I went all mermaid on  you, but there are a WHOLE bunch to choose from that made my decision pretty difficult.  Have fun with it!  You can grab this group gift by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens.  There are a bunch of other gifts out to enjoy as well!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

Making A Splash

Making A Splash

Full disclosure:  I’m a bit of a nerd.  So, when I found these fantastic bathing suits at The Wash Cart Sale, I got mildly excited.  I can’t resist the R2-D2 print, and I also could NOT say no to the Tetris one.  I can’t.   The fact that they’re just 10L each is icing on the cake!

Dream in Hypercolour

Dream in Hypercolour

I was thinking about those enormous pool floaty things.  You can get them in every shape, size and colour now.  A few years ago, someone gave me an enormous donut I can float around on, presumably in my swimming pool.  I love the idea – a post-80’s haze type of thing in hypercolour with enormous pineapples, donuts and lips floating past you, your bathing suit matching in screaming shades of yellow and pink, palm fronds swaying languidly in the heat of the summer afternoon.  I am fairly certain I could never actually make this moment happen in RL (there are no languid palm fronds ANYWHERE near me…), but my neon dream comes true in SL…

Screaming Suit

Queenz came to the rescue, charging into my fantasy with a two piece bathing suit just begging to be tossed into a pool!  I grabbed it for free by joining the group, and I ran directly to the nearest oasis, barely waiting to try it all on.  I did, however, and found a yellow version, and a pink version whose top is peppered with the very languid palm fronds I had imagined earlier.  I mixed and matched and went kinda late 80’s/early 90’s.  I am well pleased!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

More Shoes!

My inventory is bursting at the seams with shoes, but come on now – you can never have too many!  I think that’s what the people over at Garbaggio were thinking too, because I found 12 group gifts all neatly lined up and begging to be picked up and taken home.  I joined the group for a measly 50L, and now they’re all mine.  I’m wearing the Linda sandals, which I totally love because they’ve got butterflies on the back!  yayyyy!  These shoes are sized for both Maitreya and Slink.

Time for some mirrored shades and a can of something fizzy, with a crazy straw for good measure!

Tropical Princess

Snapshot_003
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!

Shimmer and Bloom

The Tropical Princess Swimsuit is available as a free group gift at Irresistible Shop, and it’s FREE to join!  The complete suit comes in two pieces…  The applier suit, and the adjustable add-on flower attachments which you can choose to wear or not depending on your taste.  There is also a texture change HUD included so that you can change the texture of the ribbons and flowers.

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Omega

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

Sunrise

Sunrise

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!
