Bein’ a Little Bit Extra, Poolside


Bein' Extra at the Pool

Hi Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in need of a pool day for weeks. Second Life to the rescue! Of course, no pool day of mine would be complete without my sweetheart. He’s the best, and he still think’s I’m pretty cute even when I’m bein’ a little extra at the pool! haha We both managed to find some great sales, and a few summer freebies to share with you as well. Keep reading for all the details.

Playfulness aside, this sweet poolside pose is part of a current sale happening at Ardent Poses. The sale ends in just a few days on April 15th, and all the sale items including couples poses, and individual pose packs are marked just 65 linden. You don’t need to wear a specific group tag, just head over to Ardent Poses and shop these fabulous bargains!

MonoKini

Speaking of sales, Beautiful Hustler is also having a big sale. Their entire second floor is marked down. Pru’s sexy mono-kini is one of the sale items marked at just 75 linden. Most of the sale items are priced at 75 linden. You’ll find a little bit of everything including lingerie, swimwear, and dresses. This bikini comes in 3 mesh sizes (Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass), and is every bit as cute from the back as it is from the front, maybe even cuter. There are also other colors available. This sale ends on April 15th, so do not wait! Also, you can wear your Beautiful Hustler group tag, (the group is free to join) and score credit toward future purchases while you shop.

My guy Blue also happens to be sporting a few summer freebies! You can pick up his hairbase hairstyle at Volkstone. This perfect-for-summer style is called “Maick”, and it is a free group gift. The group is also free to join. This freebie comes in mesh head appliers for Catwa heads, and Omega compatible heads.
Remmy Shorts

Additionally, his swim shorts are a free group gift version of the Remy shorts by Matova for the Gallant Magazine group members. The Gallant Magazine group is also free to join. Please note that only the special edition version is included in this gift. The above ad is just to give you a better look at the style. The swim trunks/undwear (SL is versatile like that!) come fitted for the Aesthetic male body, Belleza Jake, and Signature Gianni. I’m not sure how long these men’s gifts will be available, so don’t wait on them either!

{what next} Summer Drinks for SL15B

Lastly, the cute pineapple drink Pru is holding in the top photo is part of a free set of summer drinks by What Next that you can find on the Marketplace. It comes with each drink pictured in 2 sizes, and a drink dispenser in each of the shapes. The drinks have hold poses with a drinking animation. To use them as a photo prop, I just rez’d one to the ground and positioned it in Pru’s hands.

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Late Night Conversations

Late Night Conversation
Hi hi Fabulous Fab Free’rs! We are right at the end of the week and I know I’m not the only one who could use some r and r, or rest and relaxation. The most recent group gift set by LsR is perfect for a little lounging. Additionally, Xxxtaci has a flaming cool pair of group gift glasses to help you look cool no matter what you have planned.

Get Some Camo – This pale pink camo sports bra and panties/shorts set is free to all LsR group members. This free group gift includes the top and bottoms in several mesh sizes. The waist band, and the band around the bottom of the top (not sure what you call that, hmm) both read “Sexy Girl Sport” repeated all the way around. The fabric has a knitted look too it also, which is what made me think of this set as being extra comfy to lounge around in. To get yours you’ll need to head over to LsR and join the free-to-join group. There are several group gifts available.

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

Flame Glasses – Okay maybe these glasses don’t exactly go with the outfit, but they are so cute on that I don’t even care. They have a rose gold colored partial frame, and the cool flame shaped cuts on the side of these “cat-eye” shaped glasses make them irresistible. They are also equipped with resize scripts. If you’re going to wear glasses, they may as well look awesome. That said, it also helps these glasses are a current free group gift at Xxxtaci. The Xxxtaci group also happens to be free to join! One quick note, the vendor for these glasses does require you to pay one linden, however the 1 linden will be instantly refunded.

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Tattoo – The Ivory Rose – I&R moth & moon tattoo
Dress – Oubliette– Mystic Flora Dress – Currently @Ostara’s Altar
Pose by Exposeur
Location – La Frontera

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here
Hello Fab Free’rs! I’ve packed up all I own, and I’ve got my camera. I’m ready for a long vacation, where are we going? I’d love nothing more than to be able to pack up and go on some long adventure. For now I’ll be satisfied doing my adventuring, and most of my shopping, right here in Second Life. I put together most of this look using current or previous group gifts. As always I’ll let you know all the information about how to get each one, just keep reading!

The Hair – The cute little bob hairstyle Pru is sporting is a still available May group gift at Besom. I checked there today, just to be sure. I love the slightly tousled look of this perfect-for-summer hairstyle. The Besom group is 199 linden to join, and there is more than one group gift currently available.

The Dress – This dress from Prey has the look of a structured well tailored leather dress, and the fringe just adds to the effect. It is the sort of dress you could dress up, but there’s no dressing this one down! It also happens to be the free July group gift at Prey. Love told me about it and I’m super pleased she did. The Prey group is free to join, and they also have a male gift available.

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.

Netflix and Chocolate

Netflix & Chocolate
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! What do you do when it’s 3am and you can’t sleep? Get out the chocolate, make some coffee, and binge watch something on Netflix. That’s what I do anyway. I also might do a little hunting in Second Life. Just recently the Sweet & Sour Hunt began, and there are several great shops participating. The Sweet & Sour Hunt is a dollarbie (1 linden) hunt which will run through July 15th. I picked up a couple of the prizes and am excited to share two of them with you today.

All things considered this dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt prize from X.T.C. Poses couldn’t be more perfect for someone like me. Aptly named “Netflix n …Chocolate” this pose is one of two Sweet & Sour Hunt prizes at X.T.C. Poses. This pose includes the coffee and chocolate along with the static pose for just 1 linden. That’s a steal of a deal if you ask me!

HintF (shown) – Maybe I should phone a friend for help? / M (not shown) – Grab a soda, might help you think

Trashed is also participating in the dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt. Their hunt prize is this cute bandeau style mesh top. The dollarbie top from Trashed comes in a few sizes in the single blue/grey color shown.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (small, large)

Hint – Flaunting at Midnight
