Beach Weekend

Beach                                                                                                                                                                          Photo by Love Trill

FINALLY…. the weekend….

It is been a long hard week for the both of us, either finishing jobs or beginning new ones. One thing we could most definitely agree on was that we needed a getaway to let the events of the week drain away and just relax. So, off to the beach we go. As I’m sitting here looking out over the ocean and enjoying the cool breeze in my face,  she hands me one of her magazines and tells me to answer the questions on a compatibility test…. I thought this was supposed to be a stress-free weekend…. /me sighs…

It’s A Wrap

You can find her wrapped Puerto Rico Bikini as a FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Faboo! It comes in several mesh body specific sizes as listed below.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is FREE to join, and once you do – you can pick up a whole list of group gifts [FOUND HERE].

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic
  • TMP

Shades, Stars and Thongs, Ohhhh My…

My *AHEM* banana hammock is also a gift at Faboo. The Kanji Thong is one of the many group gifts available to Faboo members.  The Faboo group is FREE to join, but the gifts are pay 1L, get 1L refunded. I’m also wearing tats (GASP) today. The Black Star Tattoo is a 5L gift from the Red Girl booth at the Spotlight Event. The Tattoo comes in both Omega and Slink appliers for both upper and lower tattoos. I also stopped by REBELLION  and after joining the group, was able to pick up the Aviator Sunglasses, one of many group gifts available to members. The Rebellion group is also FREE to join.

Getting Beachy…

Our pose today is the latest group gift from Come Soon PosesBeach Weekend is just what the doctor ordered to unwind and relax. The couple’s pose comes with a chair and a chaise lounger, an umbrella, a beer beverage cooler, and a cute little pup to keep you entertained.  Also included is a wearable magazine, if you’re into taking silly quizzes… And what is the price, you are probably wondering? Why, everything you see is FREE. It’s quite a nice setup for just being a FREE gift.

Now back to the quiz… Question 2 – Do you follow her every command?  ummmm, say what???

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/07/2017 – Satus Inc

Satus Inc
Hello Again Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. Today’s Fabulous Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Satus Inc. If you’re not already familiar with Satus Inc, they have been in Second Life for a little while now and while they are probably best known for their furniture and gadgets, they also design mesh clothing. Truth be told there is a little bit of everything to be had at Satus Inc making it a shop with something for everyone. The landing point will put you in front of the latest group gifts.
Satus Inc Group Gifts
Each gift on this wall of gifts has a helpful hover text that tells you which group tag you need to claim your FREE gift.  The Satus Inc group has a minuscule join fee of 25 linden. Most of the items do appear to be for the ladies, however there are some fun gadgets and gifts for the men as well. Additionally there is a single Midnight Madness board. This is also where you’ll find the Satus Inc gift exclusively for Fab Free group members. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. If you head up the stairs from this spot you’ll find the ladies clothing along with a few menswear items, and some furniture pieces.
Satus Inc Sales & Offers
On the main floor next to the stairs you’ll find the sales items and special offers at Satus Inc. Through the rest of the shop you’ll find mostly small builds, furniture with poses, and gadgets of all kinds. I would highly recommend taking a moment to stop by Satus Inc and check out all they have to offer. The group gifts alone would definitely be worth the effort.  Happy Shopping!

Anything But Ambiguous

AMBIGUOUS

 

Kicking down the cobblestones…

I’m strolling down the sidewalk trying my best not to look enigmatic in my attire. But judging by the stares I’m receiving, I feel I am failing in my endeavor…

Today’s outfit is anything but ambiguous, except for the fact that it comes from Ambiguous. The Sparkle Regency Gold Suit Set is the prize on the Midnight Mania Board. The suit included a hat and shoes and also has a texture changing HUD for the tie. This outfit would be great for Victorian or Steam Punk role play. The Midnight Mania Board is FREE to touch, as there is no group to join.

So ends my grammar lesson for today…. (thank you Dictionary.com)

Have Lens, Will Travel

Have Lens, Will Travel

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” 

Imogen Cunningham
1883 – 1976

I sometimes feel like I’m on the quest for my next photograph before the last one I took has been uploaded. But I say that in a good way. With each snap of the shutter, the better I become at my craft. I suppose the favorite thing about photography is that it takes me to places I’ve never seen before and through it, brings you there with me…..

Point and Shoot…

Today, I’m featuring a FabFree Group Gift from Zendra.  The Camera Necklace is FREE to our group members and our group is always FREE to join. The camera includes a texture changing HUD if you want it to be a color other than basic black. This is a must have for any photographer or tourist.

Digitally Delivered…

To pick up these group gifts, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

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.

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.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

~Traditional Gaelic Blessing

 Kiss Me, I’m (Really) Irish

I know, Carson already said that. But I’m saying it, too. 😉

My grandmother was 100% Irish, and it was her grandparents who immigrated from Ireland during the potato famine years. I grew up hearing plenty of Irish quotes and sayings, my favorite of which was, “May you be in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you’re dead.” I’m not exactly sure how that works, but to this day, I still hope I can do it! 😀

But hey, enough of my family history… on to the free stuff!

Let’s Get This Party Started!

This sexy, little dress is a free subscriber gift from Nerido. No group space is required; just hit the subscriber button and wait for your gift. I’ll admit that it actually took several hours to receive mine – I don’t know if this was an SL glitch or just a slow delivery system. But if you don’t receive your gift right away, just be patient.

The dress comes in this cute shamrock and horseshoe design, as well as a solid green version, and is sized for:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Wearing of (More) Green

I kind of picked up these shoes by accident. I was hopping around the grid looking for something festive to wear and found myself at Precious Designs. Apparently, I clicked on a Mini Mania board because the shoes showed up in my inventory a few hours later – yay! They are sized to fit Slink High Feet only, but they do come with a 10-color texture change HUD, making them super versatile.

Note: the Mini Mania boards at Precious Designs change, and these particular shoes were not available when I went back today to take a look. But the shoes that were available are just as cute, so be sure to hit the board anyway.

My earrings and bracelets are by Heartsdale Jewellery as a free group gift for The Weekly Limited. Again, finding them was a bit of an accident. I had dropped in at the store to look for a different gift and found the pretty Green Goddess set instead (there is also a matching choker). Must be the luck of the Irish! 😀

Last but not least, my shamrock glasses are a free gift from Boutique 187. No group is required; just pay the 0L. Touch the glasses to activate the resizer.

Enjoy the rest of your St. Patrick’s Day! Sláinte mhaith!

On top of that members are treated to generous Midnight Mania boards and Lucky Letters that change out regularly as well!

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:
