Owl Always Love You

Owl Always
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving enjoyed the holiday, and that everyone is having a great week. I was visiting relatives for a few days and while it was a nice visit, I’m genuinely happy to be home. I’ve missed being here; I always do when I have to be away for very long. Now, to the good stuff!

There are just a few weeks left in the fall season, I for one have been enjoying the cooler days and the gorgeous autumn colors. Petite Mort recently set out an adorable set of cropped sweaters perfect for fall as a group gift. One sweater is brown with a cute fox graphic, while the other (pictured above) is a lighter shade of brown with an equally cute owl graphic. I love the extra long sleeves, and the slight cowl neck. Both sweaters come in several mesh sizes. At this time the Petite Mort group is just 75 linden to join. There are also group lucky boards at Petite Mort waiting to be played.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!

Electric Circus

Electric Circus

It felt like it was time to go clubbing.  I hadn’t gotten all gussied up to dance for ages, so I needed something new.  Luckily, Julia’s Scandal had me covered!

Causing a Scandal

I was happy to come across Julia’s Scandal, a shop that has quite a few affordable items on display, as well as several group gifts.  My eye was drawn to the jumpsuit with its plunging neckline, and cool netted back, absolutely necessary for my death-defying dance moves.  The group is free to join, making this sexy number completely free!  The jumpsuit comes with an Omega applier, and the package also contains a red version.  Woot!

Sorry guys, no more time to talk, gotta go and dance!

Snow Flurries Under a PaperMoon

Let it Snow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  One of the hardest things to adjust to when I moved south in RL was a “snowless” holiday.  For the first few years, it just didn’t seem the same without cold weather and white flakes drifting down.  Now, I’m not sure how I would adjust to the bitter temperatures I grew up with, and the RL Ripley has never even seen snow.  Would he gaze up in wonder and dig like mad in the white stuff like his SL version does?  One of these days, we will have to make the trip up to the mountains to see.

We Go Together Like Winter and a Sweater

My adorable knitted dress and shrug are a free gift from PaperMoon Creations for their group members.  Since the group has a 0L join fee, I was able to scoop up this set completely for free!  I love the cheery combination of white and red.  You can pair the two pieces together as I have done in my snapshot, or wear them separately.  The dress features a high neckline, spaghetti shoulder straps and a white Nordic-style border below the waistline.  With a slightly faded hue, the texture in the frock is well done, and looks like real yarn.  The open weave of the shrug allowed the top of the dress to peek through, but also provided welcome warmth down my arms.  I didn’t try pairing it with other tops/dresses, but since it can be donned by itself, it could be added to your separates collection for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Eight other past free group gifts are still on the wall for members to scoop up, so if you haven’t visited PaperMoon Creations before, here’s a chance to add a whole collection of free outfits to your wardrobe.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Shopping Tips for the Modern Male

11-28-2017

It’s a dirty job…

This time of year, it’s unavoidable. No matter how much of your Christmas shopping you accomplish online, there are just some things you have to go to the traditional brick and mortar stores to find. I’ve discovered a few tricks to make those times when you have to venture out a little less scary.

  1. Weekends are a no go…  We may have time away from our jobs on the weekends, but hitting the stores during them is a big NO, unless of course you like crowds, long lines and getting backed into by careless drivers of electric carts. If you must venture out on the weekend, go early, VERY early to avoid the crowds.
  2. Weekdays, a big yes… If you do have a day off during the week (holidays excluded), this is a a time when you can actually browse the merch and not get bruised and battered.
  3. Late evenings… Hit the shops an hour or so before closing. The later you go, the less people you will have to fight to get to the things you want.

Hopefully, these tips will spare you unwanted grief and unexpected trips to the emergency room.

Shopping in comfort…

That’s the most important thing, really. Wear comfortable clothing. The more comfortable you feel, the more relaxed you’ll be, even in the most harrowing of situations like when a child spills a slushie down your leg… Yes, it has happened…. My outfit today is both stylish and comfortable. I found the Male Shirt Jacket at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS as a FREE gift to members of the Third Life Group. The shirt jacket comes in 3 fitmesh sizes and standard sizes S-L and with and without the shirt underneath. The Third Life group has a one time 10L join fee. I picked up the Wasted” Skinny Jeans on one of the many group Lucky Boards at REBELLION. The jeans come with a texture HUD for four different denim colors. You need to be part of the Rebellion group to play, but joining is FREE. And I’m still wearing my new favorite, the Wagner Flat Cap, the FREE SLF&O group gift at Fe Style.

Don’t let the holiday shopping blues get you down…

Family

Guardians_001

It’s hard to believe how close we are almost to December. To celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, Baby Monkey is giving out a special group gift to their members. All you’ll need to do is be a member of the group (it’s only 20L to join).

To get the gift

Join the group by pasting secondlife:///app/group/56b559e4-74aa-2b4a-deeb-7c5d4517fe3a/about into your local chat and then check the group notices for the gift. Notices expire after 14 days, so be sure to hurry to get this beautiful Olive Wood Nativity from Baby Monkey.

Not just for Christmas

One thing that really resonated with me about this beautiful gift from Baby Monkey is that it can speak to many people. As said in the beautiful little note that was included with the gift: “If you are not a Christian we think this is still a charming family group that speaks to the enduring love of parents for their child.” This is a gift that is for all families, not just those who celebrate Christmas.

Just 2 Prim

The lovely sculpture come in at just 2 prim and is also modifiable if you want to make it larger. Currently it is tabletop size.
