Crusin’ the Strip

Crusin' the Strip

Driving the loop….

Back in the day, when malls were a thing and we all wanted out lives to be straight out of 16 Candles or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, my weekends were spent cruising up and down the strip, honking and waving at the same cars over and over. We’d occasionally pull over at one of our turn around points, the McDonalds at either end of town and show off our rides and wave and catcall at the pretty girls that would drive past. Oh, to be that age again….

A Leaning Look…

My outfit today does take me back a bit to yesteryear. The Kase Men’s Jeans, a FREE group gift at [ASHBURY] lends itself to the day when patches over your ripped jeans were the thing and not just more rips. The Ashbury group is FREE to join. {Get Frocked} also has a FREE gift for it’s members. The collared Purple Shirt projects that you care about your appearance while trying to attract the birds that fly by (often way too quickly). The Get Frocked group is also FREE to join. My last gift is totally FREE with no group to join. You can find the Lee Boots on the display floor (away from the group gifts) at BYRNE as a FREE gift to all.

Hey, looks like that car is coming by for a second look….   /me runs his fingers through his hair and stands real cool…

Air Evac

Snapshot_0066

Up, Up and Away…

Be ready at a moments notice…. We aren’t supermen, but to those who need us, we can appear to be. We airlift out the wounded and drop them at the closest medical facility, be it a field hospital or on a ship….

Cammo all around….

Don’t get all fatigued (see what I did there?) trying to get this gift.  Just head on down to Spazio and join the group for FREE and pick up the NVB 14 Outfit. This gift includes a shirt, cammo pants, shoes and dog tags. this outfit is great for military role-play and so is the sim I visited. Cayanan Island has a military base and the people there were very friendly.

Catch a Wave

Catch a Wave

Surf’s up…

It’s finally time to head down to the beach for some much needed relaxation. I grabbed the board and I’m hoping the waves are big enough catch a few rides. The beach bunnies are already starting to flock to see who will catch the biggest wave of the day…

Tiki Time…

My look today is thanks in part to Prudence, who did a wonderful job on her Designer Friday post on Faboo, that you can read [HERE]. She mentioned there were group gifts for men, so I popped over to see what was available. With several gifts on the board to choose from, I decided to grab them all and see what would look good together. I paired up the Tiki Open Shirt and Low Rider Shorts in pistachio for a tropical flair. While the group is free to join, the gifts are  pay 1L , get 1L refunded.

Gacha every time…

I normally stay away from gacha machines. My one exception to that rule is when it comes to poses. I recently saw the *Surf’s Up* pose gacha at Le Poppycock and decided if I needed a surfboard pose, I’d be back…. long story short, I went back, and played… several rounds… The Catch a Few pose is just one of the few many poses I picked up for just 50L a pull. The surfboard has a color change HUD to give your board multiple looks.  I’m sure I’ll be showing you many more of this set before the days of summer have passed…

Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

 

Blowin’ in the wind….

There is nothing more refreshing than an unexpected breeze to start blowing. I love the feeling of the air rushing past my body. Even my dog loves it enough to point her nose in the direction of the gust and lets the wind blow her ears back…

Not always equal….

I found a couple more L’Homme gifts for today’s look.  You can pick up the Asymmetric Jacket, The FREE L’Homme gift, at Gabriel. Another L’Homme gift can be picked up at GizzA Creations . The FREE Boots are next to the Oversized Sweater that I posted [HERE]. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Chess Jeans is another FREE group gift in the building of freebies at Egoisme that I talked about [HERE]

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things

You better shape up…

It’s that time of the year that I decide that it’s time to get outside and start exercising. The job I have is very sedentary and it’s easy to not get enough exercise. I decided that I would take time every day and walk or run to get back into shape.  It’s a great concept, I hope I can continue to follow through.

TRAINing…

My workout look consists of some freebies I found at NewClover. Both the Red Zip-Up Jersey and the Black Line Training Pants were both hanging on the rack for FREE. There are freebies all over the store, just be careful when buying items as not all items in the store are set to 0L. My footwear choice are my go to Vasiforms from Vale Koer. I pull these out quite often as they are so versatile with the color change HUD. It’s like designing your very own high-tops every time you put them on. The Vasiforms are FREE to Vale Koer members and the group is FREE to join.

Bright Sunshiny Day

Bright Sunshiny Day

When you call my name…

… It makes my day that much brighter… even if it’s just to pick up a gallon of milk at the market. So I’m off to the store to pick up the essentials until we can make a grocery run later this weekend….

Or just walk on by…

Today I’m showing off the Men’s Floral Taupe T-Shirt by Virtual Glitter that happens to be the 1L hunt gift in the Flowerage Hunt 2. This shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. After putting on the shirt I knew what pants shorts I wanted to wear with it. I put on the Paramilitary Shorts, the FREE L’Homme gift at Prism for Men, I originally showed [HERE] and the Black Sunglassesthe Moolto Spring Fling Hunt gift at QualityDesignZ that  I first showed [HERE].
Yeah, Yeah…I won’t forget the milk….

The East End

East End

Not a safe place to be…

Walking the East End at night is not the smartest thing to do. But when the car breaks down, sometimes you just have to take the risk. I see a big red stain on the sidewalk and hope someone dropped a bottle of ketchup … PLEASE let it be ketchup. I think I’ll walk a little faster now…

Somebody’s watching me…

I’m strolling the streets in a new group gift from Spazio. The MH17 Jacket, Jeans and Blue Tennis Shoes complete outfit is FREE to Hipnose-Spazio group members and the group is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes S-L and the jeans come in XS-XL. The non-rigged shoes come with a resizer to get just the right look.
Ok, non-rigged shoes, don’t fail me now….

ETA:  This group gift is no longer available, but there are two very nice men’s group gifts out, still with a free group join, so be sure to check out the shop anyways!

Evening Anxiety

Evening Anxiety

When thoughts are swimming in your brain…

… and you can’t sleep. Nothing in particular is bothering you but your brain just doesn’t want to shut down for the night. Was it too much caffeine? or perhaps too much screen time before bed? Whatever is keeping me awake, I might as well get dressed and go sit outside. Perhaps the cool evening breeze will tire me out and let my brain rest for ….. ONLY THREE MORE HOURS? Dangit!

Over-sized is not under-dressed….

My comfy evening attire tonight includes the Oversized Sweater by GizzA Creations. This sweater is FREE to members of the L’Homme group. The sweater comes in the standard mesh sizes and is not only comfy, but stylish as well. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Baggy Lee Shorts is a FREE gift to members of the Damoour group. This group does have a 20L join fee, but there are more gifts on the wall for members.
Well, dang, I might as well put on a pot of coffee and start my day…. I’m gonna be so tired later on…..
