Friday GuyDay: For Men Only

FINALLY – a day off! I’m actually supposed to be taking Serena out for her Rez Day, but I thought I’d spend a little time relaxing at the beach first. Before heading out, I picked up these cargo shorts and tank top, the Men Only Hunt 3 gift from 22769. This hunt runs until May 31st, and all items are free. And you know how hard it is to find good free stuff for men!

22769_moh_7f

Speaking of free, I’m wearing the new group gift eyes from IKON that Love showed you earlier today. Yes, guys can wear them too! All of my jewelry was also free; my earring and rings are gifts from GABRIEL (free to join), and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey (350L to join). My flip flops were not free, but are on sale for 30% off until May 5th at Slink. In fact, everything except hands and feet are on sale, so if you’ve been waiting to pick up a new pair of shoes, now’s the time!

Oh, one more thing: Katey Coppola of Glitterati Poses celebrated her birthday on May 1st, and is giving a gift to all of us! For a limited time, you can join the FREE Glitterati VIP group (not to be confused with the not-free, 500L, VIP group), click the gift board, and get 150L in store credit. If you happen to be a member of the 500L VIP group, or feel like joining, you can hit the other gift board and get 500L in store credit. So take your pick! But hurry – Katey said the gifts would only be out for “a few days,” whatever that means. And who doesn’t need a new pose or two? :-D

Have A Gawk At These Flawless Autumn Casuals

Snapshot_006 I spent most of today shopping in RL (YAY!), but I did manage to pick up a few goodies in SL to show you too!

In the photo above I am wearing the mesh Flawless Dress from 1 Hundred in Burnt Umber.  The texture on this dress is so rich and vibrant, it’s a must pick up!   This dress is the hunt gift for The Autumn Hunt which is all yours for 5L after locating the hidden cornacopia icon at the 1 Hundred Mainstore.

Another fantabulous TAH gift that you can score for 5L, is this very sexy Autumn Neckholder Dress shown below from GAWK.  It features a tied bow across the bare back and a low cut  bare back.  The front has a beautiful diagonal leaf print.

Snapshot_0034422769 Casual Couture has a super adorable mesh Holly Tunic Dress as their TAH gift (again 5L).  I am a huge fan of the cut of this dress and the texture is really nice too.  A def keeper in my wardrobe!  I may be back for other colours soon!

Snapshot_001fddThe lovely autumn jewelry set I am wearing in this post is a free group gift from Lazuri!  You can join their free inworld group and gain access to monthly gifts which, this month is the Sienna Necklace and Earrings.

Finding FabFree – 21-40

Renee has shown the first 1-20 Finding FabFree gifts, and I will be showing you 21-40 in this post, and Trinket will be up next with 41-60 and Kyle with the men’s items..  First however,  In Renee’s introductory post to the Finding FabFree Hunt, she said ” I’ve told you my “Finding FabFree” story.  How did you Find FabFree?”, and I thought this would be an excellent time to share my early experiences with Fabulously Free in SL :)

 I joined SL in March of 2010, arriving with a group of friends from another game, and I was fortunate to have a couple of friends who were here a few weeks before hand and were able to hook me up with some (what I thought was) decent stuff.  Like most noobs of that era, I wore the likes of  strappy bling shoes and strutted around quite pleased with my sparkly self.  After three glorious months of giggling insanely over “the thriller dance on command” (it is still kind of funny after 2 years lol), and looking like a TOTAL noob, I met a friend who introduced me to the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  The first blog I read was a post done by Carson about Garden of Dreams.  Since reading that first post, I scanned the blog every day picking up the things the FabFree Bloggers said were must haves and I never thought I’d be lucky enough to be the one writing at Fabulously Free myself a year later!  That’s my story – what’s yours?

Monsters In My Closet

Snapshot_004

This new VIP group  gift at AURA will have you convinced that you have monsters in your closet too!  The mesh Bunneh Hoodie was placed out for inworld AURA members today and a little Tyr birdie told me there is another group gift coming out later this week!  Currently the AURA VIP group is 1100L to join and I know that seems like a lot for a group, but you have to go check out the gift wall to see what is available.  There is a gorgeous skin, and a ton of clothing peices to mix and match.

The mesh denim hot pants I have on are a Depraved Summer Love Hunt gift from 22769 Casual Couture.  Have a look around the store for the floral icon and this is what you’ll find inside!

To the Beach!

22769 - To the Beach Beach Bag and Sandals, Redgrave - Mesh Boardershorts

With it being Father’s Day, I thought I’d treat myself to a day at the beach. And… I got lots of presents for the holiday.  22769 gave me (and the rest of the group) the To The Beach! Beach Bag and Sandals. My Mesh Boarder Shorts is a gift from Redgrave as part of the Make Him Over Hunt.

RGDW is also part of the MHO Hunt and their gift is the Pop Flowers Shorts and Tank. The Dani Skin by Tellaq and the Ash Rose Hair from Uw.st can also be found on the Make Him Over Hunt. My Surfboard Poses are a free gift at !bang. The boards come in three colors and includes three poses.

Taboo

22769 - Blue Shirt and Tee, Beige Postman Shorts, Duh! - Sandals

In the two plus years of blogging I have never posted without showing something free. But, I had to tell you about the latest selections that can be found at The Men’s Department. These items are made for this event and are introduced at a discounted price like the mesh Blue Shirt and Tee ($85L) and mesh Beige Postman Shorts ($65L) by 22769 Casual Couture. I also found the two pose packs from ExposeurThat Boy Pose Pack ($75L ea.) features 5 poses in each set and each pose is mirrored, so actually that’s 10 poses per pack!

The Orient Express

Silk Road

It’s time once again to take a ride down the Silk Road on the Silk Road Hunt 3 that begins today and runs through the end of June. This year’s hunt features many great gifts with a flair for the Orient. Top Katz is offering a Men’s Kimono. The earth toned print also includes a belt.

Top Katz - Men's Kimono

Find the Violet Kurta at 22769 Casual Couture. This mesh design comes in standard sizing to fit most avatars. My rickshaw driver is ready, so I’m off to more stores along the Silk Road.  Happy hunting.

School’s Out

22769 - Skater Capris and Shirt GG (1)

It has been a long slow crawl to the finish, but as of this afternoon, I can say school is out for Summer. On my last day, I dressed casual in the Skater Capris and Shirt, the group gift from 22769. I also have on my Brown and Green Sneakers from In Her Shoes.

On the last day of school I received some bad news. One of my favorite pose stores, Long Awkward Pose is going out of business. I received my first blogger poses from Dove Swanson when I first started working for FabFree and have used her poses countless times in the past two years. All poses and props are at least 50% off until the store closes it’s doors for good sometime in June. The store will not be rebranded or on marketplace, so this is your last chance for these items. Today I’m posing with the Back to School Backpack Pose Prop. This comes with 10 poses, books and backpacks discounted to $100L. Best of luck, Dove and know you will be missed.

Walkin’ in Memphis

22769 - Indian Comfi and Bleeded Crushed Jeans, Zebra Guitarbag  (Mesh)

I’m walkin’ in Memphis with my guitar in my hand. This month’s group gift from 22769 Casual Couture is the Indian Comfi and Bleeded Crushed Jeans.  Look like a wandering troubadour and try to make a living on the sidewalk playing your music. The Zebra Striped Guitar Case is also by 22769 and can be found at the Narcissus Room for only $50L. The guitar case is mesh, so you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see it. This looks like a good place to set up and lay my open guitar case on the ground. Please tip me.

Spring Madness

22769 - Black Double Cuff Pants and Belt, [ B!ASTA ] WHO NEEDS FLOWERS Sweater

Who needs Spring anyway. It just makes my nose run and my eyes water. Show off your dislike for anything that blooms and causes allergies with the  Depraved Spring Madness 2.0 Hunt gift from B!ASTA. The Who Needs Flowers Sweater will let everyone know you prefer the cooler temps (and the long sleeves are great for wiping your nose…ewww). Another gift on the Depraved Spring Madness Hunt are the Black Double Cuff Pants from 22769 Casual Couture. The gift also includes a prim belt.
