Rebellion

Rebellion

Poor Gavin. His car broke down, and I’m on my way to pick him up. But at least he was able to find some awesome gifts before his old car took its last gasp.

A Rebel With a Cause

Rebellion recently set out this Rebellion t-shirt as their newest group gift. It comes in loose, normal, and tucked versions, and in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Lots of previous gifts, such as these Aviator Glasses, are still available.

Crunchy

Gavin’s hair is the latest group gift from No.Match. No Crunch is a long, dreadlocks-style hair for men and women.

A HUD containing 36 different hair colors is included, as well as two HUDs with 24 colors (12 each) for the scarf.

There are TONS of previous gifts for both men and women still available at No.Match, making the 50L join fee totally worth it!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

I’m Ready – Let the Fireworks Fly!

You Should Be Here

Well hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I are over at Landscape Dialogue scoping out a good spot to catch some 4th of July fireworks later on tonight.  I’ll be bringing a cooler of refreshments and goodies to munch on.  Ripley, however, is planning on staying home.  The loud explosions and acrid scent of the black and flash powders cause him to huddle trembling under the computer desk.  So, it looks like there will be plenty of room for friends all along this sturdy stone wall.  You should come!

I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

Well, not really, but they sure came in handy today while searching for the perfect viewing spot.  The best part?  They are part of a free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group from the Frimon Store.  The package also includes the seated Nando pose I used for my snapshot, both as a pose ball to rez and the isolated pose itself.  It worked well for my rest break on the wall, but also could be used for chairs, benches, etc.  I had to edit the sunglasses so they perched correctly on my hand, but even with my basic editing skills, it was a piece of cake to adjust them.  To pick up this fantastic free offer, simply switch to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and click the vendor.

Stars and Stripes for the Big Day

Well, I am the star (wink), but my stripes are found on my new free Glamour pants from Treized Designs.  With a dashing black and white design, these classic joggers will have you outfitted in style.  Bold white stripes run down the outside edge of each leg and adorn the side pockets (which are handy for carrying along everyday essentials).  An interesting feature that I had not seen before is the double waistband with dual string ties.  I like this unusual design element!  The gift box includes classic as well as mesh body fits.  You need to be a member of Treized Designs to receive this free gift, but the join fee is only 0L, so it was just right for my budget!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Belleza
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Nx-David
  • Slink

I’m off to get Ripley back home before firecrackers start going off and scare the bejeebers out of the poor guy.  Happy 4th of July to all our readers in the USA!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Yes, There Are Gifts for Guys at SL15B!

SL15B Gifts for Men!

Hey there, fabulous readers!

I sent Gavin over to the SL15B shopping event to see if he could find any gifts for guys… and he did! 😀

Here’s what he found:

First off, a really nice polo shirt by ZED Mesh. Not only does it come in in this cool “camo steel” texture, but there is a “faded black” version, as well. Sizes include:

  • Standard mesh S-L with an alpha layer
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Second: perfect for a sunny day at the beach are these Black Sunglasses by ADRIATIC Line. A resizer is included; just click on the glasses to bring up the blue menu.

Additionally, Gavin also found a couple of nice accessories. First off is the EYOTA Watch by not so bad. A HUD is included so you can change the texture and color of the band as well as the watch face. Last, but not least, is the bracelet by [CX]. There is no resizer, but you can edit and stretch to change the size.

Good job, Gavin. 🙂  Oh, and be sure to grab your gifts by July 2nd!

❤ Serena

A “Berry” Fine Discovery

Cascade

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share a budget friendly shirt that I picked up as a hunt item.  When Ripley and I were shopping at the Trashed store, he kept tugging on his leash, and dragged me over to a tiny strawberry that had been concealed in the shop.  It is the hunt object for The 4 Seasons Hunt, which runs through June 26th.  We weren’t following the hunt trail, but I’m sure glad the pupster spied that berry!  For just one Linden dollar, I picked up a terrific top.   The Cascade shirt has a black and gray paisley print on the long sleeve undershirt with a solid black tee shirt over it.  The pair needs to be worn as a duo, but I like the combination of the two, and will definitely wear this more often when the fall temperatures hit.  The package includes versions for a variety of mesh bodies, but not for classic avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • David
  • TMP

Until next time, happy shopping!

Catch a Wave With Me

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Come on down to Basil Bay, and join me for a beach party!  The sun is shining, the sand is warm beneath my feet, and the inviting water is there to cool us off.  I brought plenty of food, a cooler full of beverages, and of course, a container full of Ripley Snacks.  (The pupster is hoping you’ll bring along some canine pals, too.)  The more, the merrier!  Now, that’s the way to spend a Saturday!

But First, a Bit of Shopping

Before you pack your sunscreen and towel, I have a couple of budget friendly finds to share with you that are perfect for a day at the beach.  Since showing a bit of skin is part of the package, I decided to add some new body art that I picked up at the Jersey Shore for just 10L.  The Troy Lite Tattoo covers both my arms with intricate designs.  I really like the diamonds at the edge of my wrists.  You can pick up a copy for yourself at Addicted to Ink’s stall over at the Jersey Shore.  The package includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, and Slink, and is specially priced at the event for only 10L.

Looking for a Terrific Tank?

I wanted everyone to be able to see my new tats, so a tank top was the way to go for the day.  Luckily, I discovered a specially priced one at Redangel Designs.  Right now, the shop is offering the Arnold Tank at a reduced price specifically for members of the Redangel Designs group.  Normally sold for 499 Linden dollars, for a limited amount of time, members can purchase this top for just 50 Linden dollars.  The package includes fits for classic and mesh bodies, as well as a texture change HUD with 8 color options.  That’s kind of like getting eight tops for just 50L.  Count me in!  Joining the group will set you back 25L, but that opens up six lucky chairs, a midnight madness board and a gift board which are exclusively set up for group members.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Adam
    • Aesthetic
    • David
    • Gianni
    • Jake
    • Slink
    • TMP

Those Eyes

Take in All the Sights

Of course, ya gotta be able to enjoy the panoramic vistas of the beach, and what better way to do so than through a new pair of peepers?  The other day, Kat shared a cute crop top in honor of Pride Month, but for me, I’m gonna show my support every day, ALL month long with my new Pride Eyes that I picked up as a free group gift over at the Madame Noir Store.  With both mesh and applier versions for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, these eyes are quite versatile.  Using the included HUD, you can select either large or small irises.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Madame Noir Store group, but it’s completely free to join.  I don’t know how long these will be available, but if you are looking for some vibrant and colorful eyes to sport, I’d recommend a trip over to the Madame Noir Store.

So, what time can I plan for your arrival?  I’ll be here all day, just taking in the rays, grilling some burgers, and looking forward to catching a wave or two.  I hope you come on down!

Won’t You Sit With Me For a Bit?

Break Time

Oh, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m just taking a break from my side gig playing in a band.  I found the perfect shady spot over at Cranium Bay.  How about sitting down and joining me while I tell you about my new outfit?  I picked it up completely for free.

Rock On

The other morning, I was out walking Ripley so a certain someone could sleep in.  Our path just happened to take us by The Free Dove (actually it was a bit out of our way, but hey, we needed the workout).  I decided to wander in and see if there were any new gifts available for the guys, and I was in luck! La Bella Boutique has generously set out the Aber Shirt and Amber Shorts set that I am wearing today absolutely for free for members of The Free Dove group.  One of the best things about this gift is the texture/color change HUDs that you receive for both the top and the bottom, which makes this gift seem like you are getting a week’s worth of clothes all tucked into one neat package.  The shirt HUD offers 13 background color options along with 7 designs to choose from.  Want a plain top?  No problem!  For the shorts, you’ve got 12 varieties at your fingertips.  I really like how the tee clings to your shape and helps show off those abs you’ve worked so hard to achieve.  😉 The pants include an integrated belt that comes in handy along with the option to have normal or loose fit.  If you’d like to scoop up this set for yourself, just head on over to The Free Dove, activate the group tag (there’s no join fee), click the vendor, and boom! you’re in business.  With versions for classic and mesh avatars, there’s something for everybody in the box.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Shirt:  Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Shirt:  Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, Slink, TMP
  • Shorts:  (no classic version) Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, NX-David, Slink, TMP

Well, the rest of the guys are returning from break, so I have to get back to work.  Thanks for hanging out with me awhile.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Not All Treasure is Silver and Gold

Off to the Barbary Coast

Ahoy thar, Fabulous Readers!  Polly and I are about to depart on a voyage to the Barbary Coast.  Before we leave, I just had to share this role play outfit that I put together with free hunt prizes from The Silk Road Hunt.

A Pirate’s Life for Me

Every buccaneer needs a tricorn hat perched atop his head, and the free Barbary Coast for Men outfit from Coveted comes complete with an editable pirate hat.  Of course, any pirate worth his salt should sport an eye patch to add to his fierce demeanor.  Thankfully, the designer tucked a resizable version inside the prize package.  Knee length breeches and a jaunty crimson sash complete the look.  Although the gift includes only an Aesthetic body style, I decided to give it a try with my Belleza Jake mesh body, and it worked perfectly!  If you are in the market for some role play duds, but don’t have the Aesthetic body, I’d highly recommend giving this outfit a try, since the price is just zero Linden dollars!

At the Point of a Cutlass

If I am going to be pillaging and plundering, I’m going to need a sturdy blade, and I picked up a free one over at MTD Designs.  The Pirate Sabre comes in both male and female versions, and is resizable.  You can wear it on your right or left hand as need be …. heck, if you are in a serious battle, you can even hold one in each hand!  Since this is another prize for The Silk Road Hunt, you can be well equipped for your next adventure on the seven seas completely for free!

Anchors Away

I hope you find time to explore the hunt path along The Silk Road Hunt.  I’m off to sail across the horizon.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Mayhem Achieved!

Mayhem Achieved

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I borrowed the pupster along with his tracking harness, and set off down the hunt trail of the Siren’s Song Hunt.  Legend has it that sirens were beautiful but dangerous creatures that lured sailors to their doom with their enchanting music and voices.  However, rather than crashing onto the rocky cliffs these creatures are said to inhabit, Ripley and I discovered a fantastic hunt gift.

Ready to Row

Even though we are experiencing warm summer temperatures in my part of the world, there are still those days when storms roll in, and a guy can definitely use a warm hoodie.  Well, Horr Menswear has your back covered (literally) with the Endura Hoodie and Sweatpants outfit, which is their free hunt prize for the Siren’s Song Hunt.  Featuring a nautical design with two crossed oars, a deep purple and black color scheme, and side pockets in the pants, this outfit will keep you cozy during chilly practice sessions out on the water.  The free package includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is locate the sand dollar hidden in the shop.  There’s even a handy hint giver in the store if you get stumped.  The hunt continues until June 30th.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S, M, L (includes alpha layers for top, bottom and both combined)
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

I’m off to spend a few hours skimming across the water with my rowing team.  I’ll make sure we avoid any singing sirens!  Until next time, happy hunting…

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?

A Sale Suits Me Just Fine

Oxford

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a limited time offer that our male readers may want to take advantage of.  Currently, just about everything at Kauna, except gachas, is set to sale for 0L……yes, you read that right – suits, shoes, accessories, just about everything for free!  As soon as I heard about it, I popped on over to the sim and set to work purchasing some terrific additions to my SL wardrobe.

Suit Up!

Every guy needs a “go to” suit and 2BN Casual is going to be mine.  Complete with a jacket, waistcoat, button down shirt, handkerchief, socks, and belted trousers, this outfit is perfect for business casual, as well as a night on the town with your significant other by your side.  With the shirt, you can select from open or closed collar and tucked or untucked.  The best part?  After picking up this complete outfit for free, I have plenty of Linden dollars left for an extravagant evening!  The package contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Although there wasn’t a fit specifically for the Belleza mesh body, I was able to wear the Slink suit just fine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in Small and Medium (includes alpha layers for blazer jacket only, shirt, and trousers)
  • Slink (Small and Medium for Slink)
  • TMP

Sneakers Just Won’t Do

With these new fancy duds, my gym shoes simply weren’t going to cut it.  I looked and looked, but I had no formal footwear in my inventory.  Lucky for me, the black Oxfords in my photo were also completely free at Kauna.  With neatly tied laces and just the right amount of shine, these classics provided the ideal finishing touch.  The package included shoes that I think were designed for non mesh avatars, but by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza mesh body, they worked out perfectly.

I’m going to head back to Kauna and set what else I can snatch up before this sale comes to a close.  There’s still time left for you to head over to the shop and complete some transactions on your own, but HURRY!  This sale will continue only until the end of May.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
