Of Gifts and Goals

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I decided to go for a long walk today and think about 2018.  I like to do that as the year ends and decide what to keep and what to improve.  The arrival of the new year brings a fresh, clean start, and I’m determined to set some realistic goals for myself – goals that I can stick to.  As we meandered through the winter wonderland scenes at Lemon Beach, I began by listing what went well in the past year.  For starters, finding budget friendly fashions and sharing them with our favorite readers is going right at the top of the “Keep on Trucking” list.

I Sense a Gift (or Two)

Earlier in the day, Rip and I made a visit to the Sense Event.  This monthly happening showcases new releases in a variety of categories from menswear to furniture to home and garden to kids’ items to women’s wear.  Each round opens on the 18th of the month.  We arrived and landed in front of a Christmas tree surrounded by free gifts.  Many of them are for the ladies, but I happily discovered two for the gentlemen.  The free gift box from Alter contains a deep crimson button down shirt, classic black trousers and even shoes.  The Owen top features rolled back cuffs, a subtle vertical stripe pattern, realistic folds and several buttons undone.  The solid black trousers fit well and coordinate perfectly with the top.  To complete the look, the generous designer also tucked a pair of oxfords inside the package as well.  The best part about this gift is that it includes standard mesh for classic avatars as well as styles for popular mesh bodies – all for free!  You just need to be a member of the Sense Event group, but it’s completely free to join.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Setting Some Goals

Now that we’ve  examined what went well, it’s time to think of a few things to work on.  I know for sure Kat has some ideas for chores around the house, but I reckon there’s room on the “To Do” list for some quiet moments fishing with man’s best friend.  Isn’t that right, Rip?  Rip?! Now where did he get off to?  Ugh.  That dog can hear the rattle of a box of Ripley Snacks more than a country mile away.  Seems like he just might not be man’s best friend after all.  I guess I’d better head home and get to work repainting the trim around the doors and attacking that “Honey Do” list.  There will be plenty of time for fishing down the road (I hope).  Until next time, happy shopping!
