Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals, Originally blogged [HERE]

The Second Life Frees & Offers group (SLF&O) recently sent out a notecard listing all the deals available at participating stores right now, and there are some great free items for men available on the list this time around.   The SLF&O group is free to join and you need to be wearing that group tag to claim your gift at each of the stores.  In addition to the free-to-members gifts, the group gets regular notices from participating merchants about other offers in their shops.  The free gifts put me in an outdoor mood, so I went over to the It All Starts with a Smile sim to take these pictures for you.

This first outfit includes the free SLF&O group mesh racer tank top by [AP.PAREL], perfect for a hot summer day or any day at the beach.  I’m wearing it with my tried and true, available-to-everyone musician male jeans from my inventory library.  My shoes are Duh!’s canvas loafers in tan, just $25L from Duh!.  These nicely detailed loafers are available in several colors, each for the same low bargain price.  The pose in this picture is one of the “Dangerous” pose set, which is the free SLF&O gift at  ~Just Posing~.  There’s also a more female-looking set of poses included in the gift.

[AP.Parel]SL F+O_001

My second outfit shows a versatile mesh “Fred” Top in red, the SLF&O free gift at Glam Dreams.  This shirt is something you can use year-round, so it’s a must-have in your wardrobe.  The pose in this picture is one of a free SLF&O set you can find at [Kikay].

Gizza June GG_003

Now in case you think I don’t look quite like myself in these pictures, you’re right.  Curves Shapes and Skins is offering combinations that include a shape and a skin, one for men and one for women in it’s current SLF&O gift package, and I’m showing you the “Boys” gift.  The hair I’m wearing is Mario in black, which I’ve blogged before but which is still available for free to SLF&O group members at Pocket Mirrors.  And my eyes are Mayfly’s Deep Honey Hazel Eyes, available for free at Fabfree Station.

Gizza June GG_004

So get out there and pick up all these great gifts while they’re available, and don’t forget to look around the shops and give these generous merchants a bit of business too.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion, originally blogged [HERE]

Although ALB Dream Fashion is well-known in fashion circles for it’s colorful boho-esque designs for women, the second floor of the store has a good collection of casual, fashionable menswear. There is a monthly group gift for men up there, and if you look carefully among the racks in the regular men’s clothing section you’ll see a number of additional group gifts where group members can get one or more of the colors of a regular item for free (it’s easier to spot these hidden gifts if you turn on hovertips in your viewer as you move your cursor across the clothing displays). A word to the wise – each group member is entitled to just one copy of each group gift- so if you accidentally trash something you won’t be ale to get yourself a replacement.

Image

I took myself over to the breathtaking Two Moon Gardens to take some photos of two of these ALB hidden group gifts.  My top is the GIL double vest and shirt. This is a single piece set of mesh garments which comes in several color schemes, though only the burgundy color is free to group members. The black leather back of the vest has an interesting pattern on it. My wife said she thought it looked like a horseshoe crab, but it looks to me like the rear end of a hog with a tail hanging down. Maybe it’s just a wearable Rorschach test. The pants I’m wearing are the NOAM black baggy jeans, one of a couple of colors that are free to group members. My shoes are unisex leather sneakers in white available at Duh! for just $10L.  Altogether the perfect thing for a nice spring walk in the garden.

Top – ALB Dream Fashion - GIL double vest and shirt (mesh) – (free group gift, free to join)

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

Here’s a quick post to show you two of the group gifts available at a men’s shop I recently discovered.  Bravura Homme has a variety of mesh casual and business wear available at reasonable prices, making it a great place to find wardrobe essentials.  The other good news about Bravura Homme is that the group is free to join and there are generally group gifts from the current and past two months available in the store at any one time.
Bravura - March GG
This first is Bravura Homme’s March group gift, the mesh Paranoia tee shirt and baggy pants which are perfect for stay at home days where you just need something comfortable to hang around in.  If you’d like to add some color to your wardrobe then you should go for the April group gift, the Ice Rose Dress Shirt in camel paired with sand-colored chinos.  A basic pair of tan chinos is a must-have in any man’s wardrobe, and good mesh ones like these normally sell for quite a bit.

Bravura - April GG

The unisex black leather sneakers I’m wearing in these pictures are just one of the many inexpensively priced shoes you can get from FabFree Designer Duh!.  The men’s department is up on the second floor, and you can get almost any kind of shoe you want from sandals to boots to dress shoes for $25L or less.  A package of these sneakers contains pairs in both black and white, and is a steal at just $10L.

Geoffrey is wearing:

Outfit 1 – March group gift – Bravura Homme  – (free group gift/free to join)

Outfit 2 – April group gift – Bravura Homme  – (free group gift/free to join)

Shoes – Unisex Leather Sneakers in black – Duh!  – $10L

Skin – Shawn Medium – Belleza – (free group gift/$300L to join)

Eyes – Branch Brown Image Eyes – Amacci

Hair – Makena Coffee – Alli & Ali Designs – (this week’s free group gift/free to join)

Lucky S@bbia

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses! My RL weather isn’t quite co-operating with the spring calendar, but I can play long in Second Life!  Today I’m wearing a springy type outfit that I put together with some free and inexpensive items I thought you might like to hear about!  I found this great mesh Peplum Tunic in a group lucky board at S@bbia.  It changed to “L” the minute I walked in as if it was fate I should have it.  If only that always happened – LOL!.   It was my lucky day I guess :). The group is free to join, and you’ll want to join anyways to grab these fantastic mesh denim shorts  that go so nicely with the Lucky Board prize top!  While I was in the S@bbia shop looking around, I grabbed this adorable Ribbon Straw bag for 50L.

If you are in the market for a new skin, make sure you check out The Happy Bunny Gacha Fair.  Wow Skins is participating and has their new Rima skin available in three skin tones at 100L per play along with slink appliers, tango appliers and a shape too!  Below I am displaying the six makeup variations you can play for in the Bronze skin tone.

Duh! It’s Alice!

Blogging soon

Happy Saturday, fabulouses! Spring has finally sprung (thank goodness!), and I’m enjoying a beautiful day in the garden in this sweet Alice dress and leggings, the April group gift from FA Creations. I think Thumper behind me approves. ;-) I’ve added these cute, straw flats, a brand-new release from Duh! The shoes come in a version for Slink flat feet, as well as a version for regular feet, so no feet have to go without looking so pretty. You also get a HUD with 11 different spring colors… all for only 25L. Oh, and if you’d like to try before you buy, head over to Duh! and grab the free pair in beige in the subscribo. Duh! subscribers should already have received them, but if not, check the history for a redelivery.

Blogging soon

My pretty key necklace is the latest group gift from ::Fabuleux::. If you look real closely, you’ll see the tiny dollar sign. Cute! This gorgeous skin is Nomi, the latest release from Izzie’s. I have worn lots of Izzie’s skins in the past, but the one is by far my favorite; the luscious lips and the eyebrows are really well done. Lots of make-ups included, and Izzie always does a great job on the freckles that we gingers love so much! :-)

This Little Piggy

Snapshot_002

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend :)  I have some super cute things to share with you tonight and I hope you like them enough to go pick them up, and check out what else these awesome stores have available too.

I stopped in at Ehr, originally to join their group and pick up the lovely dress they have in past notices (I’ll try to blog that one tomorrow!!), but got sidetracked by a couple more casual items that I wanted to show off tonight.  On the back wall at the Ehr shop you can find some 10L items for both ladies and men.  I picked up the Pig Shirt and Women’s Mesh Caprice Jeans for 10L a piece.

My fun Hipster Glasses with the adorable little ghost (comes in pink and blue) is available as a free group gift at Tabou Irresistible, along with a couple other items as well.  This group is 1L to join.

You can find my HeartKey Necklace made by Izzie’s at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion (TDRF).  You’ll receive long and short versions in three different metal colours for just 70L.  I couldn’t pass up a sweet necklace like this with MY name on it!

Snapshot_003

You can find this cute pastel Bubble Ring at Leonard as a group gift (80L to join), and my sparkling Haze Eyes are available as a freebie in the Brixley (formerly Crash Republic) store or in the Brixley Subscribomatic.

WoW Skins has recently moved their store and has placed out a very limited time offer of a free skin!  The Charlotte Moving Gift includes the skin shown today as well as a Smokey Eyeshadow makeup layer (worn today), eyebrow shaper, cleavage option, and appliers for hands, feet, Tango and Phat Azz.  This is a free gift for everyone – no need to be a group member.

Winter’s Dream

Blogging soon!

When I saw this gorgeous music box pose prop by *~*HopScotch*~*, I knew that I wanted to do something special with it (or at least try!). The music box let’s your avatar rotate and dance to Pachelbel’s Canon in D, or be still, if you’re taking photos. I have the snow option turned on, but you can turn it off if you prefer. It really is quite lovely, and you can try it out at the current round of Poser Pavilion.

Blogging soon!

To go with the music box, I finally ponied up for the *COCO* Doll Avatar, over which I’d been drooling for ages, but didn’t have an excuse to buy… until now. :-) While I was at the *COCO* Doll store, I found this sweet slip dress set out as a free gift, so of course, I snapped it up. Needing some jewelry to go with it, I found this pretty cherry set by Miam Miam on the Marketplace for 10L, an inexpensive pair of flats from ::Duh!::, and added one of my favorite hairs from D!va, which has been around for a while (and shown here lots of times), but is still free!

My daughter thinks the doll’s eyes are “creepy,” but I think she’s got a rather sweet face. Anyway, it was a fun change of pace, and I hope you liked it!

Valentine’s  Day must be just around the corner lol…

Today I am wearing a hodgepodge of freebies and group gifts.  I found the Turtleneck Knit Dress as a free group gift on the counter at M*Motion (free to join).  The Black Plaid Rainboots are a free wearable demo at Duh! , and the ANTIYOU Portfolio Clutch can be found in the notices of the XIAJ inworld group (again free to join!).  Last but not least…  my Thwak!
