She’s Like the Wind

(red)sand _5000 members gif male coat and scarf

Just a Fool to Believe…

I’ve had ’80’s movie soundtracks playing in my head all weekend…. (Thanks, Pru and Love   >.< ) And Dirty Dancing is one of my “compromise chick flick movies”.  I don’t mind cuddling up, watching Jennifer Grey (big time ’80’s crush) and singing along to the music. You can’t help but like this movie because we all know you don’t put Baby in the corner.

…I have Anything She Needs

Today’s gift is from (red)sand. For reaching 5000 members, they are celebrating by giving the members this FREE Coat and Scarf set. The mesh coat comes in the standard sizes XS-XL  and the scarf can be adjusted to get that perfect fit. the (red)sand group is FREE to join. Find the gift in the crate on the bottom shelf under the red slink sign. There’s also a special gift for the women!

Say Anything

Say Anything

 In your eyes, I am complete…

After seeing Pru getting Footloose and Love Dirty Dancing, I thought I’d play along with my take on Lloyd Dobler from one of the best movies of the 1980’s, Say Anything. This well known iconic pose of Lloyd holding his boombox (yeah, had one back in the day) above his head, belting out Peter Gabriel’s  In Your Eyes is one of movie’s most recognizable scenes. Lloyd found David’s Black Coat as the FREE prize on the Midnight Mania Board at Tiar.  He also picked up the FREE Group Gift Men’s Mesh Steel Blue Austin Tee by Cold Ash at their display at the Men Only District

When I want to run away, I drive off in my car…

I followed Pru and also played the gacha at [Since1975] and was lucky enough to get the rare BoomBox/C on my first try. (/me cracks his knuckles) My car, a Ferrari, (much better than Lloyd’s car in the movie) is a FREE gift at Sinsity Race Track. Take a spin around the track. It only takes 10 minutes.

♫ But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are… ♫

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

Black Sheep of the Family

R2A Teal

Totally Unjustfied…

You all may have noticed that the ladies of this fabulous blog like to pick on me. And to be honest, I have NO IDEA (rolls his eyes) why they would be like that. OK, I admit that I deserve every bit of teasing I receive. I have become FabFree’s black sheep and it’s a title I wear proudly. As I’m standing with my pallid brethren, let me tell you about the newest group gift at R2A Creations. The Teal Jeans & Shirt outfit also includes shoes and a cap. This outfit also comes in the standard sizes XS – XL and also for the following body styles:

  • ADAM
  • SLINK
  • Aesthetic
  • TMP
  • Signature

In addition, sizes are available for child and babies also.

And now that the weekend is fast approaching, just WHAT kind of trouble can I get myself into?  🙂

Gonna Soak Up the Sun 

ADRIATIC line Blue Hoodie & Jean Shorts

Gonna tell everyone to lighten up…

I’m feeling the need to head down to the beach, find a sunny spot to sit and dig my toes in the sand. And today’s outfit is perfect for such an excursion. I was lucky enough to win the Men’s Jean Shorts with Dark Blue Belt from the Midnight Mania Board at Adriatic line.

The water’s still free…

And so is another group gift I found at Adriatic line. By joining the Third Life group (type or paste in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/22874c32-502f-f4d9-fbdc-97205dad4b13/about   and join the group for just $10L , the Dark Blue Men’s Hoodie can be yours by clicking the vendor.

Every time I turn around you’re looking up, I’m looking down…

My pose today comes from PosESion. The Hunter pose pack is just $60L as were many other pose packs located on the second floor for both men and women. I’m just going to sit here a and remember that I’ve got no one to blame for every time I feel lame…

You Get My Motor Running

AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS - Biker Outfit

Looking for Adventure…

I’m got a bad case of cabin fever and need to get out the house. Only in Second Life can you ride a hog comfortably with snow on the ground. And I’m going to look the part in the latest group gift from Amazing Creations. Biker Outfit 21 is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. The outfit comes with jeans, several pairs of shoes, and a vest with a texture HUD to change your gang colors on the fly. (I originally thought the vest was untextured, DOH!) And now I’m headed down the highway for a ride… Anyone care to hop on back and join me?

Down to the Crossroads

-Labyrinth- New Year's Gift (Dapper Suit)

Trying to flag a ride…

Clapton told me to go, so I went down to the Crossroads Event and found not one but TWO FREE great gifts for us guys. Directly in front of the landmark provided, you will see the gifts. The first one is the Dapper Suit, provided by Labyrinth. The blue suit comes in standard sizes and with it, you also receive a HUD to change colors on the tie and shirt, six different colors for each equals 36 different combinations!

Everybody passed me by…

Also at Crossroads Event is the FREE Kyo Black Coat by Modulus. This double-breasted frock coat is very stylish and would work well for numerous situations. And now my weekend is over and I have to go back to frocking work….

Naked and Afraid 

Gau

Alone in the Jungle for 21 Days…

… Does Carson have what it takes to be Naked and Afraid? Probably not. I like a cozy, comfortable bed and a pantry full of food. But I can look the part in the newest FREE group gift from *It’s Gau*. The jungle themed Adao outfit would be perfect for survival based role play or just for getting back to nature. The *It’s Gau* group is FREE to join.

Under My Skin…

Today I thought I’d switch it up and try on the latest group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. The Jager Skin is FREE to members, but there is a $225L cost to join this group. If you’re into skins, this would be worth your money because there’s a FREE gift to members monthly. The skin comes in a variety of  tones and for different body types, and even comes with it’s own shapes (not shown). I think I’ll stalk my next meal… *heads off to the refrigerator*

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

That Morning-After Feeling

Sweatpants

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I don’t know how she does it… She drinks like a sailor and then can be so chipper the next morning. While I on the other hand, feel like there’s someone inside my head attacking me with an ice pick and my mouth tastes like a family of Bigfoots had a picnic in there. We had a late night staff meeting midnight margaritas and I’m feeling the after effects today.  It was nice that she let me sleep in while she ran out to do errands. She could have left the bottle of aspirin a little closer though… I think I’ll just lay here for a bit in a new group gift at the Menstuff LoungeRobbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos has placed the Blue Pagoda Sweats out for group members ($50L joining fee). The outfit includes the sweatpants, sneakers and even a shirt (that I somehow lost in a game of stri … cards). Maybe I’ll try and get some work done while she’s out  and then a nap… yes definitely a nap…
