With a Little Help From My Friends

Wild and Free

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I met some new friends today at The Mill and paused to capture a snapshot with them.  Mr. Ears was shy and didn’t want to look at the camera, but his pal Blackie happily obliged.  Isn’t Chippers just the cutest little chipmunk ever?  He is part of the pose pack “Snuggly” from Nani that I discovered on the Marketplace for only 50L.

My outfit today is a free group gift from Machka Design, and includes the darling floral shorts and knit cropped top shown in the picture, plus cowboy boots and a shirt that ties around your waist, which I opted not to wear today.  The color of the top reminded me of pale morning sunshine.  I like its high collar and sleeveless design.  Echoing the flowers scattered in the field at The Mill, the pretty botanical pattern on the shorts was perfect for a casual day spent exploring nature.  The Machka Design group is completely free to join.  To add the Santa Rosa outfit to your inventory, just switch over to the group tag, teleport to the shop, walk inside, and tap the box on the floor just inside the doorway.

What’s Included in the Gift Package:

  • Mesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for shorts
  • Knit tank top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Alpha layer for cowboy boots
  • Shirt tied around waist in XS, S, M, L, XL

Precious Things

Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Grab it while it’s free…

Dropping a quick post out for you all with some information you may enjoy.  The Resun group is currently FREE to join. I remember stopping by there a few times after seeing  items on the feeds (yes, I do look at the feeds from time to time) but never picking anything up because the group fee was too pricey for my wallet. But have no fear, right now you can join for FREE and pick up the latest group gift, the Martin Slim Shirt. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL and also comes with a texture change HUD to get just the right color. Things like this only happen once in a blue moon…

The Wearing of the Green

St Paddy

Kiss me, I’m Irish…

As I was putting on my Kiss Me, I’m Irish shirt, she shot me a disapproving look and was asked a one word question… “REALLY?” … So, it was back to the closet to find another green shirt. I found the Celtic Shamrock Tee by 7Tees that I bought on the Marketplace for just $75L. It’s not my fault she’s busy and can’t join me at the pub. All work and no play, yada yada yada… I slipped into my Shamrock Shoes, the FREE March group gift from Prey. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and I was out the door.

Dance an Irish Jig…

To get me in the mood for all this Irish revelry, I slipped on my FREE Jiggery Blarney Hat I picked up at the Jinx booth when I visited the Vintage Gacha Fair. If you want to dance an Irish jig, this hat even plays a tune. I saunter up to the bar to order my first beer of the evening and notice that her trusty man servant Ribald is the bartender for the evening. Either it’s just a coincidence or she thinks I’m going to need a ride home after too many pints….

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁

Burgers & Beer

Burger and Beers

That time of the day…

Each day, I set aside some time for myself. Whether it being finishing up work I brought home, spending some extra play time with the pup, or making a meal that consists of more than just macaroni and cheese. And on occasion, after an especially trying day, I’ll stop for a burger and some beers. Swinging by my local pub and catching up on all the gossip is also relaxing and I just let my worries wash away one beer at a time….

While on The Best of You Hunt, I found this three-piece outfit at Wilson’s Designs. The White Shirt with Tie, Men’s Vest and Black Pants are the $1L hunt gift. This outfit comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and includes alpha layers for non-mesh system bodies.  Oh good! It looks like my burger is up… “Hey bartender, how about a round for the house on me!”

A day at home

A day at home

Homebody

It’s the middle of the week and I’ve put adventuring on hold for a little bit to take a look at all the free gifts and dollarbies that have been collected over the past several days. With events such as the Vintage Gacha Fair and Liaison Collaborative’s Birthday round, not to mention fun hunts such as the Into the Blue Hunt and great deals on the Marketplace, my loot bag has been filled to the brim.  This casual (finally!) look today was pulled from all of the above and here are the details top to toe;

Let your hair down

Today’s hairstyle is called No Diva, a free gift that’s been generously set out by no.match at their Liaison Collaborative booth. While I’ve heard whispers of the no.match brand before (isn’t Carson’s celebrated new do’ from that store?) I’ve not yet had a chance to try out their products. As the old adage goes, there’s no time like the present and suffice to say I was very gleeful when I tried this hairstyle on for size. To be honest, it was really off to a promising start when I saw that the prize prim was labeled as ‘unicorn’ and guessed that I was in for some really wild and special colors. The multicolored shades go hand in hand with the lovely over the shoulder swirl of the No Diva hairstyle. If red and rainbow tones don’t suit your taste, however, the gift package contains a hud which lets you choose from twelve different color sets.  Other contents of the gift package include:

  • No Diva hairstyle in two different sizes
  • Alpha layer
  • Package containing tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Package containing applier hairbases for mesh heads (TMP, Lelutka, Catwa – Jessica, Omega)
  • Face moles tattoo layer

The birthday round of the Liaison Collaborative closes its doors on the 30th of this month so go and snag this sweet hairstyle before then. Also, Serena’s made a lovely post of some of the other free gifts available at the Liaison Collaborative so get your hands on those too!

To the Market(place) we’ll go

Personally, I’ve found that one of the best times to visit the Marketplace is when I’m stalking Lucky Letter boards/chairs/balloons. While attempting to multitask might make me miss my letter or that magical wildcard round, sometimes it’s worth it when you find a store like !gO! which offer up a plenty of varied dollarbies for sale. One of the first of said dollarbies to catch my eye, thanks to its pretty orange shade, was the Nico shirt. This spaghetti strap top is certainly Spring and Summer-ready and comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with two nifty alpha layers to help with the fitting. The alpha layers are split according to size with sizes XXS-M sharing one alpha layer and the L size with a larger one.  As mentioned the !gO! store boasts several different dollarbies so if you love clothing in the Boho or Vintage style, spend some time taking a look around.

Speaking of Vintage

While I’ve talked about Faida’s Vintage Gacha Fair gacha offering in my last post, I thought that the free gift that they’ve kindly put out at their stall deserved a mention as well. I’m always looking for a good pair of pants and the steamy leather pack certainly fit the bill nicely. While capris can be a rather iffy subject (we all have that one style of clothing that’s pretty low on our list right?) for me, I did like how these ended in soft tiered fabric. Not only did it add a nice feminine touch to the outfit, it also provided a dash of patterns (tatarn) to what would have otherwise been an outfit comprised of only solid colors. The steamy leather capris come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer also included in the gift package. These capris are one of two gifts at Faida’s stalls and let’s just say the other is really great if you roleplay. The Vintage Gacha Fair ends on the 19th so that means it’s only a couple of days more for you to scoop up gifts and play some great gacha machines.

Hunting for shoes

In lieu of pink sneakers, pretty and well made blue ones will do just fine. When I saw the ad for Madison keds by Wicked on my flickr feed, I knew I had to have them for my growing and growing and growing collection. It was pretty exciting to realize that these sneakers would be available for just 1L for the Into the Blue Hunt and you’ll get not one but two different pairs in the prize package. I’m wearing the jeans version in the picture above and while the shot doesn’t do the pair justice there are pretty scalloped flowers on the body of the sneakers. You don’t need mesh feet to slip into these sneakers as the prize comes along with an alpha layer and shoe base. The Madison keds themselves have a resize scrip in them for easy fitting and permissions are set to copy so you can make backups. The Into the Blue hunt is ending on the 29th of this month so get out your nets and hut out your blue butterflies by then and while you’re at Wicked slap their no group needed mini mania. They have lucky chairs too!

And that’s a wrap. The chores are done and all of the animals look like they’re going behave (for now) all that’s left is convincing Damon over here that Halloween is not for several months. Someone tell him that his puppy face is not enough for people to give him candy out of season; please? Oh and before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Madison keds to give you a better idea of the design on them and a look into the other pair that you’re in store for should you decide to hunt these out at Wicked.

The Best Of You

Snapshot_016

 Like watching paint dry…

Sitting here waiting for my jeep to dry out (yeah, it’s still very soggy) is like watching paint dry. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy around the man cave tinkering on projects. I’ve taken a hiatus from the whole mesh head thing (let’s not go there).  I also went out on a hunt to occupy my time.  I made a few stops on The Best of You Hunt and put together an outfit that I can knock around the garage in. At AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS I came across the Open Front Standing Collar Shirt. I found the Straight Fit Black Men’s Jeans at Dixie Designs and at Lady Dragon’s Design I scored the GreenFlo Shit Kickers. All the hunt gifts on The Best of You Hunt are $1L each.  Oh and if you are thinking about nosing around my man cave, just remember, Chomper is always on duty….
