Summer’s Last Sunset

Summer's Last Sunset

A Sad Farewell…

As we say goodbye to summer (Goodbye summer, we will miss you.) and move into fall (Hi fall, how are you?), I reflect back on the summer of ’17. I’m glad it’s past but I am going to miss the warm days, the summer breeze,  and the sun setting later in the evening.

A Gift to be Happy About…

I’ve slipped out of my skin today and into a new FREE Mesh Avatar from ExMachina. If you are wanting to experiment with a mesh avatar or have a newbie friend, this would be a good starter for them. The best part, the group is FREE to join. I’m also wearing a pair of Swimsuit Shorts by !BBN! that is free to members of the Menstuff group. The group has a one time join fee of 50L but there are several gifts on the wall to make the lindens worth it.

♫ Though we gotta say goodbye, to the summer
Baby I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss  ♫

Ice Cream Man

Ice Cream Man

 

♫ I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
Oh my my, I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy ♫

Redecorating with 31 favors…

While I was on “leave”, It seems that Love redecorated the FabFree Info Hub. She added a quaint little ice cream bar on the side of the building. If I wasn’t on a diet (stupid doctors), I’d be eating the ice cream instead of serving it.

Basic Black(berry)…

Today’s outfit is a L’Homme Magazine group gift located at KIB Designs. The L’Homme Pants and Shirt Outfit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a very business or semi-formal look. I’m putting this outfit in my closet rotation.

Wait… fruit flavored ice cream is still fruit, right?

Weekend Warrior

Weekend Warrior

For Duty and Honor…

Here’s to the men and women that give of themselves one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer to keep us safe. Not only do they have regular jobs, but family as well. They sacrifice much and risk deployment, spending time away from their loved ones. Next time you see a weekend warrior, thank them for for their service and sacrifice.

Loud and Proud…

As I’ve said, I’m catching up on a summer’s worth of gifts. I headed out to Loud Rebel Designs and found the Ramon Outfit as one of the gifts on the wall. This outfit comes with a texture HUD for three looks in one. I chose the camo to match my boots. Group gifts at Loud Rebel Designs are free to members with a one time join fee of 50L.

Deploying Around the Grid…

And speaking of my boots. I was lucky enough to find the hot air balloon hunt item on the Around The Grid in 80 Days 5 Hunt at Firelight Creations & MAN STUFF. The Combat Boots  hunt gift cost just 1L to find and if you are not feeling the hunt, you can purchase the boots for 25L at the hint giver. And ladies, the boots also come in your size too. A great unisex gift. Another gift on the Around The Grid in 80 Days 5 Hunt is the Traveler Transport Vehicle which can be found at Hogs And Carts Wheels. This is a fully derivable vehicle and you can also ride at the machine gun turret if you choose. Again, you can find the hunt item for just 1L or pay the hint giver 25L and save the searching.  This hunt is winding down to it’s final weeks. Don’t let these gifts get away.

Hello Autumn

Hello Autumn

A Change is in the Air…

I have a love/hate relationship with Autumn. I love the changing colors, the crisp browns, golds and oranges of the season. I also love the smell of camp fires, (hard) apple cider, and the crisp air in the evenings. BUT, I hate that the days are getting shorter, (walking the black pup in the dark is no fun) the sky takes on a grayish hue, and the thought that winter is fast approaching.

Fall ‘Stuff…

I decided to take a taxi over to The Menstuff Lounge. They have remodeled since I last visited and have several new gifts on the wall. I decided on an outfit that was fitting of the season. I picked up the gift by Brocade Tiger, the Carlos Pants and Open Blazer. This set comes in two styles. solid (shown) or patterned. I paired it with the Menstuff gift by Just Imagine. With some adjustment I fit the Un Dos Stress Tank under the jacket for a nice Autumn look. All the gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are FREE to members but there is a one time join fee of 50L.

And if you are in the mood for some fall scenery, check out The Autumn Cafe. I’ll see you by the campfire.

Fab Free – Designer Friday – 09/15/2017 – Heaven & Hell

Heaven & Hell Exterior
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here, especially on Friday (okay, almost Saturday)! I’m sure it goes without saying that this is indeed the Fab Free Designer Friday post for the week. Heaven & Hell is this week’s featured designer. Also you’ll be happy to know that Heaven & Hell has clothing for ladies as well as gentlemen. Along with clothing you’ll also find shoes at Heaven & Hell. The style could best be described as fun and flirty, leaning more toward casual clothing, but with some what I would call “date night” looks.

From the moment you enter the Heaven & Hell main shop, it’s obvious there is a lot to see. Just to the right of the circulation desk you’ll see boards mentioning associated groups and events. This is also where you can find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members, just be sure to wear your tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, there’s a joiner above the gift. The Fab Free group is and always will be FREE to join.
Heaven & Hell Offers
Once you’ve picked up your copy of the FREE Fab Free group gift previously announced by Love here, follow the trails on the floor toward the Heaven & Hell group gifts. The Heaven & Hell group is also FREE to join. You’ll find a vendor of FREE female Heaven & Hell group gifts to the left and a vendor of FREE male group gifts by Heaven & Hell to the right. Keep following the paths and you’ll come to a wall full of Lucky Letter boards, half of which require the Heaven & Hell group tag to participate, and half are open to everyone. There are male and female gifts in the Lucky Letter boards also. In the center of the Lucky Letter boards are a couple of Midnight Mania boards which also have a male and a female prize. Finally, you’ll also want to take note of the various “special offer” vendors positioned throughout the store. Happy shopping Fab Free! Enjoy all these awesome FREEbies!

Back on Campus

Back on Campus

 

Has it been a month already?

I can hardly believe I’ve been back to work for four weeks now. I’m settling into my new position (a promotion of sorts) and the campus is a flurry of activity. I can finally lean back and breathe a sigh of relief that I’m finding my groove.

Old or new? I’m not sure….

Being out of the blogging game for a few months has left me wondering if gifts are old news or new and fresh. So please bear with me as I find both old and new treasures. I stopped by Gizza Creations and found a L’Homme group gift that I didn’t have. The Malcolm Shirt is FREE to L’Homme members and the group is FREE to join. I then headed over to Resun Fashions as I had a few months of group gifts to collect. I was pleased to find the Mexico Jeans are the September group gift. I was even more pleased to learn that the group which normally costs 100L to join is currently FREE.

Two post from me in a week. WOW! a new record. lol

Catch ya next time….

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Hello, yeah it’s been awhile…

Summer has come and gone (and I’m glad this particular summer is over). I’m finally back to work in the nether realm called the real world, and the first few weeks were nothing short of exhausting. But I’m now hitting my stride and feel I can come back and blog a bit more regularly. Today’s look is the latest group gift from R2A Creations. This gift consisting of a dotted polo, denim shorts and blue sneakers comes fitted for most body types and also comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL . Also included is a headband (not shown). This gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

An extra long (smoke) break…

I purchased today’s pose just before my extended break and it was a surprise for me when I found it in my inventory. I had totally forgotten about it. Smoke Break is one of several poses that can be purchased for just $25L on one of the male pose displays at Double Take. I  am excited to be coming back with poses I have never used.

Until next time, true believers…

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Man in Black

Man in Black

Black as Midnight

Hey there! I’m attempting a post to see how it goes. My recuperation has been nice, relaxing, and BORING! But unfortunately I’m returning to work in a couple weeks. So much for the life of leisure. <sigh>  I’ve been watching listening to way too much TV. One of my favorite new shows is Midnight, Texas. The church in the show reminded me of the church at The Last Forever. So here I am in my midnight best showing it off.

Today’s outfit is a free gift for the Third Life Group members at !BBN!. The Man in Black outfit consists of pants and a shirt, both in sizes XS-XL and also a fitted size for each. The Third Life Group does have a 10L join fee, but a small price for such a nice outfit. This outfit is going into my keeper closet, for sure!
Hopefully, I’ll see you soon!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I cannot believe July is almost to an end. It seems like the summer just began. I suppose that old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” really does ring true. I don’t know about ya’ll but I’ll be spending at least some of my Saturday picking up the last few July group gifts that I’ve yet to snag.

July at the EMPIRE

One of which is the July group gift at EMPIRE. I’ve been an EMPIRE fan for a long while now and I’m never disappointed in their group gifts. This month’s gift includes 2 pairs of these high wedge type heels with a cut out at the heel, laces at the ankle, and a peep toe. The shoes come in the deep red shade shown, and a shade of blue. Additionally there is a hud to change the tone of the metal bits between black, silver, and gold. The EMPIRE VIP group has a one time join fee of 500 lindens, however they do offer monthly gifts and there are currently a few previous gifts still available as well.

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

Leggings FTW

Next up, I am so glad I snagged these cute black leggings from Satus Inc. They are a current group gift available to all Satus Inc. group members. You’ll find this group gift on the table to the left as you enter the Satus Inc. main store. You will need to join the Satus Inc. group and wear the group tag before clicking the gift vendor. There is a one time join fee of just 25 lindens however there are always gifts and sales. Plus, I think these comfy leggings will make everyone’s bum look good!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), FitMesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

FREE Okami Tattoo

Finally, this nicely done tattoo is a current group gift at K-tarsis. This tattoo shop is a new-to-me shop and I’ll tell you there are some eye-opening photos decorating the store. Just be aware you’re in for a bit of tasteful nudity if you shop at K-tarsis. The decor aside, I’m super happy with this Okami gift tattoo. This is another group gift, so you will need to join the K-tarsis group before clicking the gift vendor. The K-tarsis Designs group is FREE to join, making this a totally FREE gift even for new group members. Also, this is a unisex applier tattoo with appliers for both male and female mesh bodies.

Appliers Included: Slink (female/male), Omega (female/male), Belleza (female/male), Maitreya, Signature

Here are the details, Enjoy!
