Happy Spring

Snapshot_002 Good evening Fabulouses!  Tonight I am swinging by to show off my new Happy Spring Garden Table Set that I picked up as a free group gift at Follow Us!  This awesome new low prim group gift includes the table, chairs with several natural poses, and a menu that allows you to rez and hold drinks.  The pretty macaroons on the table are included as well (I CALL THE ROSE ONE!).  The Follow Us group is 40L to join, but will seem like a drop in the bucket with multiple group gifts and exclusive group offers available in the VIP room.

My dress, which is called Edge Ice Roses is available as a free group gift at Siss Boom in both gold and silver.  The group is now 250L to join, so I hope you stayed in the group after my last Siss Boom post because this dress is adorbs!!  If you are not a current group member, don’t be discouraged by the fee!  There are a ton of previous group gifts available after you join the group making it well worth the lindens.

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

A Second Chapter

Snapshot_005

Hi Fabulouses!  Guess who else is celebrating an anniversary?  When it rains – it pours… and it’s raining free group gifts in celebration of their second anniversary over at this round of The Chapter Four!  I am showing you six of them in this post, but there are a good 25 – 30 of them – and the group is free to join!

I’ll start with the goodies I am wearing tonight – At The Chapter Four as free group gifts you can find the LpD Judy Top in white which comes in several mesh sizes as well as the Fishy Strawberry Moto Jeggings.  These Jeggings come in normal sizes and curvy sizes – plus you get black and blue!  The Bday Octopulpo friend is wearable and is the gift you can pick up that is sponsored by Moon Amore.

Now moving onto the set I have built…  The cute little rezzable Ferret in a hoodie is by Birdy and if you love this lil guy, you can play for other versions in their gacha machine.  The bag he is holding is the Eco Bag by M.Birdie Story and is holdable for avatars, but I thought he looked cute wearing it instead lol.  The double pillow with the sweet little bird on it is the gift by Serenity Style.

If you are an inworld member of the Sway’s group (250L to join), you can pick up the Seat Cushions in a folklore print along with the table and table accessories for free!  This is located at their mainstore.

Just two more pieces to tell you about… and these are not gifts, but are very affordable!  I picked up the Wannabe Boho Petal Mirror and Rug in an instore gacha machine at the Junk mainstore at 50L per play and if you love eclectic boho decorating you are going to love this set!

I’m off to open up more boxes – this is just like Christmas all over again! Enjoy your night :)

Swaying Into Summer

Snapshot_006

Good evening Fabulouses ;)  Tonight I bring you news of a couple group gifts I picked up at Sway’s and a sweet summer outfit by Entice that I won in a midnight mania board!

You will need to join the Entice inworld group to access the midnight mania board that delivers the free “Like a Prayer” outfit at midnight if it’s locked down, but the group is free – so it won’t hurt!  This outfit includes a pair of belted denim shorts and the colourful blouse you see me lounging about in.

I put this little summery scene together with the Broken & Unbroken Lawn Chair [Flag] Set that I found as a free group gift at Sway’s.  The chairs come in both broken and unbroken versions and each have several relaxing (and falling – lmao) poses.  These chairs are copy if you need to rez more out for friends.  The Cookie Bear is also a free group gift at Sway’s and was sent out last year, but he’s still available and very cute!  This group is 250L to join and there are a few gifts to snag.

My [Quack] Swim Ring that I am about to toss into the pool can be found in a Sway’s instore gacha machine at 50L per play.

Enjoy your evening!
