Ahoy There!

Ahoy There

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Fourth of July to our readers in the USA!  Ripley and I found a lovely spot for a picnic on the Summer Edge sim…. a place far away from those noisy fireworks that freak him out in RL.  All those booms, whistles and crackling sounds make him so nervous, so I will be keeping him close until the evening’s celebrations are through tonight.  I saw an article online about an animal shelter where people spend the evening with lawn chairs and treats, providing comfort to the homeless canines on the 4th of July, and I thought that was such a wonderful idea!  If Ripley wasn’t so upset by the noises in real life, I’d love to help out too.

No Stars, but I Did Find Stripes

Earlier today, the pupster and I spent some time over at the Ghee store seeking out red anchors concealed throughout the sim as part of the Ahoy There Ghee Nautical Hunt.  Each item costs 10 Linden dollars, and we are showing you two of the 40 + items you can scoop up at the hunt.  First, I’d like to draw your attention to my navy colored sailor shorts.  They feature a high-waisted, curve hugging fit, and two columns of golden buttons.  Three vertical seams add a realistic touch to the fabric.  With a coordinating combination of navy and white stripes, the nautical stripe top completes my outfit.  This little number ties on the sides and boasts spaghetti thin shoulder straps.  It provides coverage in all the right places but also leaves plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun.  If navy blue isn’t your color, there is also a lighter blue version of the top and shorts as well as red concealed separately as part of the hunt.  I really liked the darker blue hues in these two hunt prizes, so for a total of just 20 Linden dollars, I was quite pleased with my nautical look.  The hunt runs through July 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Inner Peace and Quiet

 

Inner Peace and Quiet

Sometimes everyone needs to take a moment and just bask in the quiet. I took some needed time to be alone, be silent, and quiet my mind. It’s part of how I “self care.” Second Life in a lot of ways is part of my self care also. Among many things (and a few people), this blog and the never ending quest for fabulous freebies are therapeutic. They are/it is good for my psyche. For this post I’ve got the latest group gift at gO! to share with you, and free SL16B gifts from Peaches, Libertine, and Ariskea. I hope they’re good for your psyche too.

About The Dress – 

One of the things I’ve always admired about clothing from gO! is the texture. This group gift dress is no different. The detailed textures are such that it’s easy to imagine how this dress would feel, how it would move. The gO! group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. To get your gift simply join the group, then click the gift vendor behind the desk while wearing your group tag.

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

About The Blanket & Décor

I still can’t get over the number of gifts out at the SL16B shopping event. I do wish there were more gifts for the guys, sorry gents, though I did pick up a few great décor items along side the many gifts for the ladies. One of which is this very cute summery blanket with animations, and the froggy incense holder by Peaches. Notably named “The Queen’s Peace”, this gift has single and bento PG couples poses. You’ll find this free SL16B gift by Peaches waiting in the SL16B Tinseled region.

Doesn’t this little owl planter by Ariskea look like it was made to go with the SL16B gift by Peaches? I think it definitely does. This adorable owl comes exactly as shown and is copy, mod, no transfer. You can get yours for free at the Ariskea shop on the SL16B Aurelian region.

Pears are possibly my favorite fruit. This delicious looking plate of pears is the free SL16B gift by Libertine. Along with these perfectly plated pears, the Libertine gift includes a broken plate version with scattered berries and chocolates, and a little note. This free SL16B gift is waiting in the SL16B Aurelian region as well

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Bubble Gum – Pink Fuel Bubble Gum

She Don’t Know…

She Don't Know She's Beautiful

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  Ripley and I are about to set off on a camping trip, but I couldn’t leave without telling you all about a stunning formal gown that I picked up for just 2 Linden dollars as a prize in the You’re Beautiful Hunt.

She’s Beautiful

I just love the color scheme of this outfit from The Sissy Bar!  The soft lavender hue of the material is accented with a delicate floral design.  Featuring a floor length skirt that just kisses the ground, this gown will have you feeling elegant as you sweep across the dance floor.  An x-shaped detail emphasizes the gown’s waistline, while an off-the-shoulder cut allows your shoulders to soak in some sun shine (or moonlight).  Just in case you get a little chilly, the designer also included a translucent shawl to wrap around yourself.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  All you have to do to add this lovely frock to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a mirror, and pay the teensy 2 Linden dollar fee.  There’s a handy hint giver in the store to point you in the right direction.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP
  • Shawl for Classic, Mesh and Ocacin

We’re off to the mountains.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

It’s All About the Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post {here}, I told you about a free dress that I picked up over at TRS Designs.  While shopping, I couldn’t help but notice another free group gift, so I’m back to share the Felicia Dress with you today.  As soon as I saw it, I immediately fell in love with its flirty fit and cheery color scheme.

Pretty in Polka Dots

Featuring double lace shoulder straps, a waistline accentuated with crimson band and a flared skirt that falls to the upper thigh, this dress is perfect for a party.   The bodice, which hugs your curves, has a wide v-shaped neckline, and is trimmed in the same red ribbon as the waist and hem.  With its brilliant background and darling dotty pattern, you’re sure to draw admiring glances your way.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh bodies, which makes this a versatile gift.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but since it costs nothing to join, you can add this little number to your wardrobe completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover for our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Party Girls


Edible

Hi hi Fab Free’rs, from myself and Aline! Have you ever been to a party or an event where they have a hired photographer who goes around taking candid shots, and then you can go to their website to see the photos? This photo of Aline and I reminds me so much of those party photos, which makes sense because the pose is a free Pose Fair gift called “Party Girls” by Flamingo. Also, the matching outfits are part of the Saturday Sale at CoCo that just should not be missed!

So I know I’ve been “Pose Fair Pose Fair Pose Fair” in my last few posts, however I just can’t get over how many awesome free gifts there are just waiting to be picked up. This free gift by Flamingo does require the free-to-join Pose Fair group, so be sure to join and wear that group tag when you click the gift box. This gift includes the two-person pose in pose-ball form.

Now, let’s talk about these outfits. There are four versions of this cheeky tank top and short shorts set by CoCo out early for this week’s Saturday Sale. Aline and I both picked out a favorite, though it was hard to choose one. Clearly we chose well, I mean sweet petite Aline has to be “Thicker Than a Snickers?” right? And Pru is kind of a “Whole Snack” or “snacks” maybe?! Hahaha I’ve added the vendor photo below so you can peep the rest of the sets. If you think these are as much fun as we do, hurry over to CoCo while they are just 75 linden per set.

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

One Step Closer to Summer

Summer Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are eager to continue catching some summer vibes here on the Baja Tides sim, so we are popping in with a quick post to share our latest hunt prize.  This week, we checked out The Four Seasons Hunt and discovered this cute tank top over at Trashed.  Featuring a pale gray ribbed background and a vibrant pink flamingo chilling amid blossoms, this top was just what I needed to chase away the cloudy skies in my part of the world.  The designer added realistic details such as a curve-hugging fit, wrinkles in the fabric and slender shoulder straps.  I love the way the top is just a bit on the short side, which allows some of my hips to catch a bit of sun.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is locate the hunt icon, a strawberry, and pay the 2 Linden dollar price.  There is a handy hint giver on the wall in the shop in case you get stumped.  It sure helped us out, although Ripley insisted that *he* knew where the berry was all the time.  He was just waiting to see if *I* could find it myself.  Silly boy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • O-Voluptuous

  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!
