Midnight Margaritas

Midnightmargaritas
Hi there Fabulouses! The other day, a few of the girls and I were commiserating about disobedient dogs (and men),  and decided that we couldn’t solve our problems… but we could have “midnight margaritas”!

It was around midnight last night when I called on the whole team with a “whirrrrrrrr” of my blender to pop into my kitchen for some fun!  I wasn’t able to wake Edi or Astrid out of their sound slumbers…  I’ll have to catch them next time, but Serena, Kat, Pru and Carson all came running, still in their jammies at the sound of “put the lime in the coconut…”.

* Note for those who for some reason don’t know the best scene in the best movie ever…  Practical Magic – Midnight Margaritas:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ihb6FLSh64

Wouldn’t you know it…  all of our night clothes are under the Fabulous 75L limit, with some of them even being free!  Check out the credits below…

ps. Thank you for posing for me ladies and abs!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Snapshot_001
I don’t know what it is about today, but I felt the need to get my arms into the sleeves of a big snuggly sweater.  Of course I tried to sneak his….  His sweater is always the softest warmest option.  It’s like a hug without a hug, but he guards that thing with his life and I was forced to find my own!

Sn@tching My Own Sweater

Fortunately for me, Sn@tch had a whole fatpack of their Agnetha Winter Cardigans on a new lucky board and I was able to score a free set on a lucky letter “L”.   Included are eight colours in XS-XL mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

My Vintage Jeans

I found these fabulous Vintage Jeans at Red Room as a free group gift for the Third Life inworld group.  This group does have a join fee of 10L, but this is a really great pair of jeans that I’m sure I’ll wear again, and again :).

Sizes available:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Stronger than Super Glue

Cassandra Couture - Dema Outfit

Vice Squad…

It has been over a year since I finally kicked the smoking habit. But sometimes, I want to fall back to that old stress-relieving crutch. I’ve just started back to work after two relaxing weeks off and the stress wall smacked me right in the face. I felt like all I was doing was spinning around in circles getting nothing accomplished.  It would have been easy to light one up and inhale my stress away. But, if it’s one thing I’ve learned, cigarettes are like potato chips, you can’t have just one. So I’ll just burn one virtually and tell you about some fabulous group gifts I’ve found. By joining the group at Cassandra Couture for FREE, you can receive the FREE Dima Outfit.  This outfit comes complete in the standard mesh sizes and includes shoes! There are also other past group gifts available.

Wicker Man…

You can also get some nice furniture at PiCaZZo. By spending just $15L on joining the group you can get the Contemporary Wicker Set as a free gift. The chair has several poses and animations to choose from. With my stress level, I picked the smoking one (of course). I also found a FREE Seltzer Bottle at %Percent Furniture & Lighting when I joined the subscriber. I guess smoking in the virtual world isn’t doing me any good. I better go look for a better stress reliever…

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

The Walk

Sorry For the Stupid Things…

I can be a Grade A #1 jerk. I’m reminded of that every time I mess up… which is often. But it takes a strong woman to deal with my childlike childish behavior. She’s forgiven me for the whole New Year’s Eve fiasco. Now I have to be on my best behavior (and learn to keep my mouth closed). I am starting out the new year with a new attitude… She’s always right! (we’ll see how long that lasts  🤔) And I’m starting off the year in a new group gift from insomnia. The Men’s Long Shirt is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join. This shirt comes with many choices, styles dependent on size, and comes tuck and untucked. I’m also wearing the $10L Distressed Work Jeans by Dark Water Designs as part of the Wash Cart Sale. The last day of the sale is January 4th so get it before it’s all packed up.

Walking the Walk and Talking the Talk…

She’s forgiven me and it’s time to kiss and make up, and time for me to start keeping my word. So we are going to walk upstairs and “talk” about it.  Walking is one of the FREE group gifts at RK Poses. There are several group gift poses to grab, but I suggest you have a look around at both the couples and singles poses. You won’t be disappointed. and speaking of not being disappointed… Hey! did you just grab my…. 😍

In the Shadows

Shi x Messiah

 

The Neckwarmer-man

Is he a guardian angel or one to be guarded against? He’s a masked scarfed man who roams the lonely and deserted streets.  Who is he? Where did he come from? and why does he cover his face? All we know about his is that he shops at .Shi x Messiah. The Fedora he is wearing is a FREE group gift as is the Neckwarmer and Tankbag. All these items are unisex and the group is FREE to join, so don’t be surprised if we see his sidekick, Neckwarmer-Girl  lurking about.

Keeping a Watchful Eye…

It’s crime-fighting time… at least that’s what time the FREE group gift Watch from Prey is saying.  He is also wearing a Vintage Shirt by <T> Roxidus, that can be found at the Menstuff Lounge. All gifts are free to Menstuff members, but there is a $50L joining fee. I’m also guessing that he stopped by the Wash Cart Sale in his secret identity as a mild-mannered blogger and bought the Star 69 Work Pants for just $10L at the Dark Water Designs cart. The Wash Cart Sale is open until January 4th, so hurry on down before it closes.

Tune in next week to see Neckwarmer-man battle EarMuff Girl.

Early Morning Ruminations

ALTER Owen red outfit
 
Paying for my actions…

The sun is rising, but it’s a cloudy day and there won’t be much sunshine today… for me at least… She’s still mad at me for coming home late. Looking at how bleak it is outside just reminds me of how bleak it is INSIDE.  I’ll try and look more presentable today than how I looked last night. I still want to know how that lampshade got on my head. I know… I’ll wear my new FREE group gift outfit I received from ::ALTER:. The Owen red outfit can be obtained in the group notices. You don’t have to even go to the store to get this one. Just paste this text in local chat: secondlife:///app/group/faba6414-97cb-7221-9f42-91af3d829250/about to join the group. There is a $50L joining fee for the ::ALTER: group. Look in the notices and you’ll find it. There is also a ladies gift too!

What can I do to let her know how sorry I am for being a selfish jerk? Maybe I can make up for it by fixing her breakfast…

The Unforgiven

Kicked Out

But I Called….

… and told her I was stopping for a beer after work with the guys. And yes, I know it is New Year’s Eve and that we HAD plans. But, you know how it goes… time just got away from me. So, as I walked through the door, she was madder than that bear in The Revenant. She told me to and I quote “Get the @#&* out of MY (thought it was ours) house and don’t come back!”. Yeah, I was a few hours late, but we still had time to make the party. Now I’m sitting here in the cold and contemplating just what I did wrong. I’m glad I grabbed the Hunter Jacket by BRAVURA Boite Noir to keep warm. You can find this as a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge. While I was there I also picked up the JZ For Men Classic Tan Jeans, another FREE group gift to the Menstuff members. The group does cost $50L to join, but with the many great gifts, it makes the joining fee well worth it.

A Reprieve, sort of…

After about an hour of me freezing and sulking for being a bad person and her staring me down out the window with eyes made of dragon fire, she opened the door and told me to come inside and warm up. I told her I was sorry and promised it would never happen again. She simply said “OK”, then pointed towards the chair and said this was where I’d be sleeping tonight. AND I was to keep my “hat” on. I reached up and realized that I had forgotten I had on the Baby I’m Back! Lampshade from !gO!  or even how it got on my head. The lampshade comes with a texture HUD if you want to make sure you match.  So here I am, warming by the fire and slowly realizing that this little incident is not yet over…

Forgiven - sort of

Another Auld Lang Syne

It's Gau GG

We drank a toast to innocence…

I’ve decided to spend my New Year’s Eve at home, away from the parties the noise, and the revelry.  But I am celebrating with a few bottles of champagne and ringing in the new year in the latest group gift from *It’s Gau*. The FREE Happy New Year Shirt  is available to members and the group is FREE to join! I also snagged a pair of  Skinny Blue Jeans, another FREE group gift from *It’s Gau* while I was there.

We drank a toast to now…

And finally, I promise this is the last item from Free Dove for a while… (There was so much stuff!) I found the Stars Camel Sneakers by Shoe-Ddiction at Free Dove. I think I’ll just sit here and remember friends long gone and look forward to my new SL adventures in the coming year.

♫ Just for a moment I was back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And, as I turned to make my way back home
The snow turned into rain ♫

Life is a Highway

On the road again...

I Can’t Drive 55

I finally had enough of the cold and snow and decided to take a drive in my new car.

I hadn’t been out driving on the Mainland roads for quite a while, and let me tell you, it is not for the faint-hearted. In one trip, I saw everything from the ridiculous to the… well, more ridiculous. I passed a WWII-era airbase floating several meters off the ground, a seriously overcrowded breedables farm, a “Kittycat Whorehouse” (for humans? cats? humans dressed as cats?), and a giant baby with Donald Trump’s head holding the Scales of Justice. I have no idea what that last one was all about, but somebody is clearly trying to send a message, LOL! 😯

If you’re looking for somewhere to drive, be sure to check out the Second Life Road Network Directory for maps and suggested routes. I did most of my driving on Routes 8 and 9, and there are plenty of Rez Zones (places to rez your vehicle) along the way.

Unfortunately, sim crossings still take much of the fun out of driving; once you finally get going, you’re tossed up into the air, underground, or into the water, before jarringly arriving on the road on the other side. Another hazard to watch out for is accidentally driving onto private land with super-speedy-object-return and having your vehicle zapped out from under you. DOH!

Be careful out there, folks!

Little Deuce Coup

I stopped for gas – and a quick selfie – on this lovely sim called West of the Rain. It’s not a large sim, but it’s extremely detailed and worth a visit!

My look was inspired by this fabulous leather jacket, which is the latest free group gift from BUENO. You can wear the jacket with or without the little shirt that says “Naughty is the New Nice” (which I think may be my mantra for 2017), and it comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies, as well as a “fitted” version.

I added the free Absence of Fear jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich (previously blogged by Love and Pru), and the Lacey Choker dollarbie gift from CHAIN. The choker is resizable and comes in both black and white (changeable via HUD).

SIDE NOTE: Since there was no Maitreya version included in the BUENO gift, I decided to switch over to my Slink Physique body. I had heard that Slink recently updated their mesh bodies, so I popped over to the store to pick up the new version. To be honest, I hadn’t worn my Slink body in a very long time because the HUD made me crazy, and I didn’t feel that there were enough alpha cuts, making the body difficult to wear with many designs. But I am happy to report that the updated body has many more alpha cuts, and the new HUD is split up into sections, no longer cramming everything onto one, crowded screen. If you own a Slink body, be sure to head over to a redelivery terminal at the in-world store to pick up the updated version. 🙂

 

On the road again...

Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Shoot, there’s my phone again. Probably Carson needing a ride. I’ll just let it go to voicemail.

I’ve been having such a blast driving my new Bentley Supersport! I picked it up as a free group gift at Sydney City, and I have to say that it is really well done, not to mention FUN!

Both doors and the trunk open and close, the headlights turn on and off, and the dashboard is nicely detailed. The engine makes a cool vroom vroom sound, the exhaust you see in the photo was not photoshopped, but actually comes out of the car when you drive! There are a ton of other options that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet, so be sure to click on the car to get the full menu. Note that the car weighs in at a hefty 69 LI, so you may not want to park it or use it as decor unless you have plenty of available land capacity.

My apologies to the lady people I ran over, and thank goodness the bus that hit me sustained more damage than I did. 😉

BTW, I’m pretty sure that Soylent Green is people.

Simply Irresistible

Prey - Men's Vest Duh! Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers JZ- Mens Classic Blue Jeans -

The Love Meter says….

… That I’m “Irresistible“. I was sure it was going to say “Naughty“, but that was apparently meant for someone else. I stopped by Prey and by joining the group for FREE, I was able to get the Men’s Vest as a FREE group gift. I’m still wearing the Classic Blue Jeans by JZ For Men that I showed [HERE]. I am also wearing the FREE Brown Ankle Wrap Sneakers I picked up at Free Dove that were provided by Duh!  

Put a Ring On In It

While I was at Free Dove, I also picked up the FREE Unisex Black Trim Diamond Stud Earrings by Glint. That just added a little more sparkle to my already irresistible look. I wonder if I can break this machine?
