Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


A Little Summer in the Winter

I think Love’s mood of needing a minute away from the Holiday rush may be catching.

A little Summer in the Winter

I love this time of year but after all the snow and reindeer and Santa red… I needed some Summer. And isn’t that one of the niftiest things about Second Life… Summer, or Spring or Fall when ever you want it.

I found my “Off” day outfit at the Wash Cart Sale at JK Style’s cart. This is the “Janet” outfit. Not only do you get the sweater and the jeans AND the boots for the 10L price tag. But you also get a HUD to change the color of the sweater to one of five colors. That’s a pretty sweet deal. The outfit comes with alphas for the boots and the top and the sweater comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L.

Even as I’m complaining about the Holiday rush, I’m taking advantage of the fantastic Christmas Advent at KittyCats. These are the  “Frost” Hoop earring from Swear, Lapoint & Bastchild. Long name… great earrings. These large hoops come with a HUD to change the metal, the bead and the charm. All told that’s six metals, five beads and four charms.

My equine companion for my escape comes from Come Soon Poses. This is Gacha machine #4  located just outside the shop and it’s a tiny 25L to play. “Best Friends” comes with the horse and pose and a huge fully build complete scene.

Tomorrow, I’ll get back to Christmas….

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A Minute

I Just Need To Close My Eyes For A MinuteYou know I really enjoy this time of year, but it is freaking exhausting!  Are you all worn out too?  I feel like I just need to close my eyes around the ruckus for a minute lol.   Two more days to go!

I am stopping by the blog today to share news with you about a couple new free gifts I really like.  First, Due sent out this adorable hairstyle called Teeny for free as a group gift to their inworld VIPs.  This pack includes all the colour huds and seriously could not be any cuter than it is!  The Due group is 100L to join.

Aphorism recently released their new Knee Socks and with that, have placed out a limited edition holiday print as a free subscribe gift!  While I am not wearing a whole lot today to match my socks up to,  these socks do come with a texture change hud that allows you to change between several different colours and come in specific fits for Slink Physique/Hourglass, Maitreya (experimental, but works perfect on mine), and fitted.

Lingerie isn’t something I normally wear in SL as I am always running from shop to shop, but “WOW” when I came across this dainty bodysuit (Karla by Milk Tea) at The Cosmo Sales Room for 75L, I couldn’t pass it up!  Maybe I’ll stay in today 🙂

The beautiful Angel Christmas Tree you see in my photo is a free gift at Hanaya!  I just hit the vendor and it was sent to me, now I am not sure if you need to be a subscriber first or not, because I was already in it to begin with.  If the tree doesn’t get sent to you right away, subscribe (It’s free), and then hit it again 😉

Giving You The Gold Shoulder ;-)

whc amerbazaar blkshirt 1

Happy Wednesday! In the spirit of the holidays, I planned to post something bright and colorful. However, wouldn’t you know it? I found something fantastic in black instead! Black is, of course, the official color of Men’s clothes in Second Life (a fact that I readily make fun of often). Sometimes, though, an item comes along too sharp-looking to be ignored, and this is one of those cases.

The Serious Shirt is this month’s free group gift from American Bazaar. It is a seriously handsome shirt combo, with the black shirt, tie and a nicely textured sweater all integrated into a sweet piece of Mesh! It is offered in Five sizes for an easy fit, and the black-on-black look and great style suits my taste to a tee. Well done, American Bazaar. Thank you for a fantastic free gift!

There is a Christmas tree at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room decorated with festive stockings which are filled with a variety of free gifts. Among them you will find the Fashion Shades from Yasum that I am wearing in the above picture. There are versions for both male and female avies. Plus, they come with a hud giving you a choice of six frame textures and four lens textures. These shades are quite stylish and the hud options make them versatile as well.

Last (but certainly not least!), there are several free gifts over at Swank Events. The one that really screamed, “Pick me up!” was a shoulder pet, of all things. I have never blogged a shoulder pet before so for it to catch my eye, you know it is something special. Heth Haute Couture has created Cosima The King of Couture – Shoulder Pet, a brilliant gold figure with bright diamond eyes. Highly detailed right down to the little crown, it is an impressive piece of work to be sure. I usually don’t wear shoulder pets. I doubt most guys do, but this is definitely eye catching and it could be just the right detail to finish off a fun outfit.

That’s it for now. With the holiday season upon us, I hope your lives are filled with joy and love. If you can’t have that, then try comfort and lust. That doesn’t sound too bad either. However things work out, best wishes to you and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Snow Angel

Snow Angel 1

I once had a mentor in my life give me a little gold stick pin that said we all had guardian angels in our lives. This gift from Paris Metro reminded me a bit of the sweet nostalgia I felt the other day when I found that small gift tucked away in my jewelry box.

This lovely gift from Paris Metro is FREE with your FREE group join, and you can get it by stopping by the main store to pick it up there. It includes system and applier layers for Belleza, Slink, and Omega, a flexi skirt, sculpted belt and back bow, the wings shown, and a beautiful lead glass ornament (not shown).

Snow Angel 2

Lazui has also put out a set of beautiful new gifts for their group members in the form of this Renata Emeralds Set. For your 250L group join fee, you can get two different necklaces, both bracelets, and two earring styles all FREE. Lazuri is generous about giving out regular gifts, so don’t let the fee deter you.

My lovely Snow Queen pose is an advent gift from Eternal Dream Poses. Yes, the advents are still going on and it’s not too late to get in on some of the advent generosity! To get this pose you have two options, pay 10L if you are short on group space (a tiny fee for such a beautiful pose) or join the group for 200L and get all the advent gifts FREE — plus gifts for the rest of the year as well! The snowflake in the picture I have tinted to gold, but it was originally blue (tinted from white). It’s modifiable, so you can tint it whatever color you like to fit your snowy scene.
