Hear the Ocean

Hear the Ocean

Spending my Saturdays in, on, or around the water has become my summer go-to. When it’s this hot and sunny out the waves are hard to resist, especially when Blue is able to join me for a day of splashing around in the waves and collecting shells. It’s also really hard to resist an opportunity to wear this cute as heck bikini. I’m also really digging the retro vibe Blue’s swim trunks have. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about this swimwear, and how to get my bikini, his trunks, and this cute couples pose for next to nothing!

Sass

I would have never guess I’d encounter a sloth print bikini that is as adorable as this one, yet here we are! This sloth bikini is a free group gift at Sass. Right now the Sass group is just 10 linden to join, making this bikini one steal of a deal. It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies with the single sloth print shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, MeshBody Legacy/Legacy Perky

Brocade Tiger

These blue and white swim shorts by Brocade Tiger are a dollarbie Beached Bunny Hunt prize. I love the pattern on these as well. The Beached Bunny Hunt will run through the end of the month so there’s still time to snag this cool men’s swimsuit. There’s also a matching swimsuit for the ladies included. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see both suits. So really, you’re getting two prizes for your 1 linden!

Hunt Hint: Careful, he bites!

    • Male Swimsuit Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh (s-L)
    • Female Swimsuit Sizes Included: Voluptuous, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh

SamPoses

This sweet beachy pose complete with seashell prop is a free group gift at La Vie en Pose by SamPoses. The gift includes the pose in a stand which gives you the ability to adjust the pose the same way you would in furniture. The pose is called Sea Sound and you can get your copy by heading over to the La Vie en Pose event and stopping by the SamPoses booth. You’ll need to join the La Vie en Pose event group as well.

Making Sense of It All

Making Sense of it all

It’s hard to believe that the Holidays are quickly coming to a close. I was just filling stockings and now I’m planning for New Years eve. Now, in Real Life, the Hubby and I are more cuddle up for a movie marathon with some sparkling cider and kisses at midnight. But on the Grid… I wanna be the one sparkling!

Like Love said… Sparkle on

The Sense Event is celebrating a bit early for New Years but it’s their 2nd year anniversary so why not? Many of the Designers are helping to celebrate by putting out fun free gifts for us. I have to admit, I almost skipped Celestina’s Weddings gift. I figured it would be something wedding related. Just goes to show, never judge a book by it’s cover. CW has given us this gorgeous violet cocktail dress and all the sparkle you could ask for to go with it. You’ll get not just the dress but also the two rings, the earrings and the brooch. And every piece is just spectacular. I can’t keep everything I pick up in my search for Blog posts…but I’m keeping this!

Sizes Included

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

Strike a Pose

My sophisticated pose, that just happens to show off my new rings perfectly, is from Crystal Poses. Simply named “Single//1”, you can pick up the free pose at the Sense Event as well. Just join the Sense event Group, which is free to join, and you can help yourself to so many gifts it’s almost like Christmas all over again.

Before the Rain



Before the Rain

As we all know by now I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Medieval Fantasy Hunt items. While wearing the free MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia, I felt transported, inspired by another time and place. I’m pleased my guy was willing to participate and help me capture this moment while showing off the male MFH prize from Secrets of Gaia. I considered writing a little narrative to go with this photo, but I’ll leave that to your imagination and just tell you about the freebies

Kimonos! There’s something majestic about a kimono in my opinion. These gorgeous his and hers matching kimonos are the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize at Secrets of Gaia. I love all the attention to detail in them. The women’s kimono includes matching flats, and hand fans (not shown) and the men’s gift includes the kimono only. 

Female Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Voluptuous

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL) + Alpha Layer 

Hunt Hint: Let me check you out. (The male gift and the female gift are hidden together.)

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

So Pugly


So Pugly

Hey Fab Free, seems like the week is just chugging along, did we even have a weekend? lol One great thing about Tuesdays in Second Life is 25 Linden Tuesday. The too-cute top I’m wearing is the 25 Linden Tuesday item at Paper.Sparrow. I also happened across the most recent group gift at Pink Hustler. I hope you love both of these fabulous finds.

The Paper.Sparrow Top

This version of the 25L Tuesday tee at Paper.Sparrow reads “You’re so Pugly” across the bottom. There are several of the “Francis” tees in this style, each with a different graphic priced at 25 linden each for today only. Also, the shirts have a very cute shredded back which is perfect for summer. To get yours, just head over to Paper.Sparrow before the end of the day (I’m not sure if the promotional price will be available longer) and follow the 25LT signs to the vendor. No group is required.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Voluptuous, Ocacin, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (S,M,L)

The Pink Hustler Hair

Pink Hustler has this cute shoulder length hairstyle available as a free group gift for all Pink Hustler group members. The style comes with 3 color huds, each with several choices, and the ability to change the color of the bow. This summery style also has resize scripts for easy fitting. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 500 linden. Along with this gift, there are quite a few previous group gifts still available.

Also, the top and shorts can be worn separately.
