A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me

It’s a beautiful morning…

…at least in Second Life. It’s a bit overcast and rainy in my neck of the woods. While checking on the horses this morning, I stopped for a rest on one of my hay carts and a little bird flew down and kept me company on my respite….

Fully enMESHed…

I’m acclimating to my new look very easily. I really thought it would be more traumatic than it has been (ok… trying the demos WAS a bit traumatic). But now that I have been fully enmeshed, I want you show you a FREE hunt gift from the enMESHed Into Spring 2017 Hunt. I found the blue egg hunt item at Fearsum and won the 2 Tone Sweater as a prize. Since I was feeling lucky, I stopped by BHB and tapped a few of their FREE, no group to join, Midinght Mania Boards and woke up this morning to a new pair of Dempsey Boots. These boots are perfect for my morning chores or a night out for line dancing. (like she’d EVER go line dancing, just sayin‘). And ladies, these boots are unisex so try to win a pair for yourself.

My little friend is telling me it’s time to get back to work. Later, ya’ll.

Oh Lucky Day

Snapshot_002“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.” ― A.A. Milne

Hey there FabFree Readers! As Carson mentioned in his post yesterday [HERE], Tig’s Treasures has a few lucky boards and he managed to score some sweet fashion finds.  You should know that there are also ladies boards too and with the rotating offers, there are multiple gifts to be had for both guys and girls…  That is…  if your lucky letter comes up!

What’s The Prize? & I’m A Doofus

I am wearing the Denim Shirt/Undershirt which is a one piece item that I really like!  This combination is available in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes that alpha layer, should you require it.

*NOTE:  It’s actually the white shirt in the lucky board… not the blue. I was a doofus and wore the wrong colour!  White is even better…  it will match with everything!  If you like the blue colour I am wearing, you can pick it up instore at a very affordable price.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/24/2017 – Entice

Entice Main Entrance
Happy Friday Fab Free! Today’s Fabulous Designer Friday post is all about Entice. I’m pretty sure the Entice shop has been around as long if not longer than I have. They are truly a “household” name in Second Life. If you’ve never been to Entice, now is a great time to get to know this shop. They have recently redone their store, and I personally love the new layout. Entice specializes in mostly women’s mesh clothing, however they have become a one-stop-shop in that you’ll find everything from casual day wear to evening wear, lingerie, shoes, even nail appliers and hairstyles. I’m sure I’ve left something out of that list, but you get the idea! As you enter the store, you’ll see the desk with all the usual information and a few extras. There’s a subscriber group as well as the regular store group, both are FREE to join. In that first room you’ll also find the wall of information as I’ve come to call it, and as you can see in the photo below, Entice participates in several events. If you’re interested in what they have to offer at any one event, you can visit the room to the left and get a full preview including demo items when available for the current lineup of events
Entice Information & GiftsOne thing about Entice that no one can deny is how generous they are with gifts and opportunities to score FREE or inexpensive items. Just beyond the room at the entrance, after you go through a beautiful landscaped courtyard, you’ll find a second circulation desk, and a full wall of group gifts, midnight mania, and lucky boards. As I mentioned before, the Entice group is FREE to join.  This is also where you’ll find the current Fab Free exclusive group gift. You may remember this gift from Serena’s post “ Tres Joli in Rose“.  To get the Fab Free nail applier gift, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. Not a member? No problem! There is a group joiner for the Fab Free group just above the gift, and the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Is it your rez-day? Entice wants to celebrate with you! in the same room you’ll find a corner with balloons and two FREE gifts that are available only on your rez-day. There’s also a Wardrobe gift in that area. Whew, that’s a lot of gifting goin’ on! Needless to say, a trip to Entice is well worth it, you won’t be disappointed.

Lucky to be a New Man

New Man

(Mesh) Eyes without a face….

When i came back to Second Life, I spoke of how I was going to transform myself into a new and improved Carson of today, instead of my system Carson of 2012. Over the course of several months, I feel that my quest for a total makeover is complete (until something new and shiny catches my eye). I have finally converted over to my new mesh head.  I’m sure I’ll be tweaking the sliders for several weeks, but this is the new me (which, I think looks a lot like the old me).

Lucky Treasures…

I was lucky enough to score some FREE gifts from the lucky boards at Tig’s Treasures. I got the blue and white Canyon Leather Jacket and the Men’s Navy Chino’s while standing at the boards (I have so much fun on my free time). The boards rotate, so there are plenty of gifts to be had. The board is set to the group but it is FREE to join! I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear available at The Menstuff Lounge that I previously wore [HERE].

I hope you like the new “me” as much as I do!

A Dress with My Name on It

Spring Flowers_001

I’m baaaaaaack…….

I’m back and I missed all of you! I stopped by one of my favorite places to get free gifts, EvelineInTheBox, and was pleasantly surprised that the current free gift bears my name… Astrid! And it’s a pretty spring dress with flowers and a waist tied bow that isn’t too outlandish but instead is just right! As always, the EvelineInTheBox group is free to join, making this pretty dress free too!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It’s good to be home.

It’s nice to take breaks, but it’s good to be home too. I missed my blogging family and all of you readers. I hope this free spring time dress makes you as happy as it made me when I came across it this morning. Here’s hoping there is a sunny sky where you are today!

This week he put out the Summer Hot Tank Top & Short Jeans in an array of colours, of course at the introductory price of 60L per set and I was inspired to head to the beach for some sun and fun.  I am wearing the “wet” version in the top but there are several other dry coloured versions to choose from as well.

You’re So Vain

Selfie

You had one eye on the mirror…

It’s no secret I like taking pictures of myself. Just look at the blog and that is very obvious. But, I think she had enough of me checking myself out in the mirror and told me I should go take a drive and give her a break from “all of this” as she motioned at me. I guess that’s what happens when my light shines too brightly…

Lately I’ve had a problem with people photobombing me. I don’t want them spoiling my perfect photographs with peace signs, rabbit ears and goofy smiles. As I’m driving down the road listening to …Carly Simon?!?  (She must have taken the car and left one of her CD’s in) I get the urge to take a shot with my iPhone and selfie stick (the best invention since the Polaroid camera). I pull over, aim and shoot… nothing is going to spoil this picture of just me in the country….

But you gave away the things you loved…

Today I’m wearing a FREE group gift from LaPointe & Bastchild Designs. The Swear “Classic” T-Shirt comes with a texture changing HUD with different shirt designs. I’m also pointing and clicking in a FREE group gift I picked up at Anbee. The Car Selfie pose  includes the full car, sitting pose and a selfie stick. Both of these groups are FREE to join!

(EDIT: I have been informed that the Anbee group is NOW $10L to join.)

I Just Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

Snapshot_001
What can’t I get out of my head?

Well, don’t tell him his love isn’t all I’m thinking about (thank you Kylie Minogue), because I may be tossing a thought or two in the direction of Daddy’s Choice Designs today!  Daddy’s Choice Designs has this lovely and romantic spring sundress set out for you as a free Enmeshed Into Spring Hunt Prize.  I am just in love with this short little frock that gives your legs that “going on for miles” look.

If you’d like a copy of the Daisy Spring dress as shown in my photo for yourself, head over to Daddy’s Choice Designs and hunt down the free Easter Egg hunt icon…  and don’t forget your knickers…  you’ll need a pair.  This dress is seriously… short.

Sizes Available & Body Compatibility:

  • XXS-L – No alpha
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Have Love Will Travel

Snapshot_001
Hitting The Road

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am unsure if it is the warm spring weather or this new outfit I just picked up for free at The Designer Circle Anniversary round, but I was feeling the need to get out and stretch my legs.  Now… Where to go?  I stopped in at Kathryn’s to see if she and Ripley would like to join me, but it looks like Ripley has already led her off on another adventure of their own!  I think I’ll just close my eyes and point to a spot on the map.

It’s Worth The Trip

If you like the outfit I am in today, you should know that the Casey Outfit by Finale Couture – that includes the jacket, pants and Slink add-on shoes is a free gift (priced at 0L!) at this Anniversary Round of The Designer Circle.  In fact… many of the participating designers have freebies or dollarbies you can pick up, just set out on the ground of their displays.

Casey Outfit Sizes & Compatibility:

  • Shoes: Slink
  • Jacket – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer + Fitmesh
  • Pants – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
