Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/04/2017 – Monomania

Monomania Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, Friday may be coming to an end but the weekend is just beginning. With that in mind I highly suggest you take a moment this weekend to visit Monomania. They just so happen the subject of this weeks Designer Friday post! Why should you visit? Well first of all, the shop is very prettily decorated and landscaped, there’s even a lush courtyard type oasis you can enjoy. I always admire when there is great scenery to go along with great shopping! However, a big reason would be the huge number of group gifts and freebies you’ll find.

MonoMania Gifts
As you enter the store the wall of vendors you’ll see are the currently available Monomania group gifts. Seriously ladies, that’s half way to a new wardrobe! haha There are also a few group only Lucky Letter boards, and a group only Midnight Madness board. The Monomania group does have a one time join fee of 50 lindens, however as you can see it is 50 lindens well spent! The style of ladies mesh and applier clothing at Monomania has a wide range, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Monomania Other Groups & Camping
A bit farther to the right of the Lucky Letter boards at Monomania you’ll find a large group of affiliate groups and their associated gifts. It’s in this spot where the FREE and exclusive Fab Free group gift by Monomania is available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t picked this gorgeous green mesh dress up yet, you’ll want to make sure to snag it. It’ll be great for the current warm weather or with cute knee boots in the fall. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Monomania also has a camping chair, park your avatar for 30 minutes to claim the prize!

The above photo is of the Nala Designs front desk. Here is where you can join the Nala Designs group and you’ll want to check out the little pink gift box. It’s a 5 linden gift. Most of the Nala Designs items are mesh trendy casual women’s clothing items in great colors and patterns.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

The Amazing Spider-Carson

The Amazing Spider-Carson

Webslingin’ for fun….

The other day, I was bored and as a goof I thought I’d play superhero. Instead of finding a traditional Spider-Man costume, I thought I could find something close enough for my needs out of my own wardrobe. I put on the Taylor Shirt from A&D Clothing (not free) and changed the textures in the fatpack to the red and blue shown. I also put on a pair of A&D Clothing Patrick Pants (again, not free) since I was already in that folder and knew there would be no bleed through. I had recently won a FREE pair of Deadpool Timber Boots from the Midnight Mania Board at DS Mens Wear. (Items do rotate on this board, just so you’re aware) I also found in my inventory the Spider Necklace, a FREE Le Homme group gift at Real Evil Industries. And there you have it, I spent part of my day playing your friendly neighborhood Spider-Carson. I took this photo as a memento of my play day, but it ended up deserving a post of it’s very own.

8 bit heaven…

Yeah, I admit I spent way too much time and money standing in in front of machines just like this. If I had all the dollar bills back that I fed into that brown coin changer behind me, I could probably take a nice vacation somewhere.

Free  Replay…

I’ve been stalking frequenting the Midnight Mania Board at REBELLION and have come away with some nice gifts. Both the Denim Assault Hoodie and “Infliction” Cap were both prizes on the board. The board rotates daily with a prize for either men or women. Stop on by and give the board a tap.

Hey, does anyone have a dollar I can borrow?

Vacation – Day 1

Vacation - Day 1

 

Sleeping in…

The first item on my summer list was being able to sleep in. And I must say it was working out simply fantastic until…. I hear the whimpering at the side of my bed.  It seems poor little Angel is not on her summer vacation schedule as of yet and thinks it’s time for me to get up and cater to her needs. I grab my clothes and look for her leash… Girl, we need to talk about letting me sleep in…

Casual Camo Cargo…

Second Life often imitates Real life in my choices of clothing. My summer choice of pants is not the standard jeans, but comfy cargos and today is no exception. I happened to touch the Midnight Mania Board at DS Mens Wear and won the Jungle Camo Outfit. There is no group needed to participate. The outfit includes a tank, cargo pants and shoes for the Aesthetic body, but other than the tank looking a little big, everything else fit perfectly on my ADAM body. The Midnight Mania board changes items with each round so stop by and see what you could win today.

We are back from our walk and I’m drinking my first cup of coffee, wide awake and ready to start my day. And the dog? She’s snoring behind my chair…. /me grumbles

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???
