Skating through Black Friday

11-24-2017

 

Nope! Not gonna do it…

While she’s out finding the deals of the day, I’m totally avoiding the hustle and bustle (and cart banging, the fights over the last of an item, the long checkout lines, the hassle of parking…) I decided I’d take the board out before the snow is a permanent fixture on the sidewalks. Let her look at sidewalk sales while I sail the sidewalks…

I got my deals early…

I have lots of freebies and dollarbies to talk about today. My new hairstyle is a 1L marketplace find from Speakeasy. The Clay Fatpack Hair collection comes in a multitude of colors and also includes two hairbases (black and white). I found the Steve Shirt as a FREE gift to members at Justice. The Justice group does have a 10L join fee. I’m still in my Room Pants I showed in my last post by Happy Dispatch. also previously shown are the V-3 Trainers, a FREE group gift from Vale Koer.

Play all day…

There is no work for me today, so I’m going to play the day away with my new pose from Play Poses. Skateboarder is a FREE gift to group members and comes in both male and female poses. The Play Poses group is FREE to join. Enjoy your day, even if you are out in the maddening crowds of Black Friday.

Happily Dispatched

11-22-2017

*******
I was sent out for more firewood, but I really didn’t mind. I enjoy the stillness of a peaceful snowy morning. I even took some time to sit on a fallen log and listened to the deafening silence. I hope she doesn’t get too cold waiting for more kindling for the fire…

My Happy Place…

I was happy to find the Room Sweater and Pants, a subscriber gift from Happy Dispatch. While this outfit claims to be for Signature bodies only, It worked well on my ADAM body.  This outfit includes a texture HUD for 8 shirts and 4 pant textures.  The gift is easy to get. Just click the join group sign to subscribe and the click on the gift to receive this great outfit. The subscriber and the gift are both FREE. There are also past gifts available.

I hope your holiday weekend is a peaceful one.

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Fall Festival

Fall Stand

Annual Events…

Every year in my neck of the woods, a fall festival is held the first two weekends in October. You can always count on at least one of the four days to be cold and rainy. This year didn’t disappoint because two days were wet and blustery. I feel sorry for the poor souls that have to sit out in the elements and hawk their wares.

Setting up the stand…

Today’s gifts are perfect for working a fall stand outside in the unforgiving elements. The Autumn Leaf Seat and the Autumn Chalk Board are FREE group gifts at EARTHWORX. Right now the group join is FREE, so hurry on dawn and pick up some nice fall decor gifts.

Bundling up…

My jacket is a group gift from !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. The Winter Jacket is a Teleport Hub group gift. The jacket comes in sizes XS-XL and an alpha mask for standard bodies. While the gift is FREE to members, the Teleport Hub group costs 10L to join.

Mr. Pumpkin Head

Pumpkin Head

I’ve lost my head….

I’ve looked all over this corn field but I still can’t find my head. I tried on this jack-o-lantern, but it doesn’t fit quite right. Perhaps if you replace it with this skull I found, it will be a better fit…

Witch Hunters and Pumpkin Heads…

My look today is a combination of two gifts that I came across. The Witch Hunter costume is a FREE group gift at BlueMoon Enterprises it also comes with a matching female costume. (Astrid showed the Salem Witch Dress [HERE]) My head is a FREE gift at TheDarkness Monthly Event. Head over to the Kaju display and pick up your very own Mr. Pumpkin Head. This head comes with alpha masks to hid your head and even has a burning candle inside.

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I sure had a scare as visited the Halloweentown Sim.  There we were, just minding our own business, when I heard the crunch of gravel behind us.  Each of us froze, and silently stared at the other.  “Did you hear that?” my eyes sent a telepathic message to the pupster.  “Uh huh,” he silently agreed.  I turned and looked behind us, but saw nothing except the darkness and empty night air.  As soon as we started walking once again, the dreadful noise continued, edging closer and closer.  I whipped around, and as you can see, my brave defender hightailed it for safer ground while I was left cringing in fear.  To his credit, when he realized I wasn’t running beside him, Ripley did return, though.  He let loose a ferocious growl, which startled the shambling skeleton just long enough for me to gather my wits and take off, running full speed, with canine feet churning up the ground with me.  Luckily, we were able to escape just in the nick of time!

A Halloween Sweater for A Frightful Adventure

The evening was brisk, but I stayed toasty warm in my Tasha Halloween Variation sweater from Elgund and Nilsson at The Cart Wash.  With cheerful pumpkin and cat faces, stars, and moons scattered across a charcoal background, I was perfectly outfitted for the upcoming holiday.  I love the thick, chunky knit of this long sweater.  All I needed to complete my look as a pair of tights and long leather boots.  Best of all, this cozy pullover is a free gift for the Tenth Anniversary of the Cart Wash, which you can find in the small green box embellished with a pink ribbon in front of the vendor display.  Simply right click and buy for 0L.  Easy peasy!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

I hope that is the last Ripley and I will see of wandering skeletons.  Our encounter was far too close for comfort!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I’m a MONSTER!

I'm a Monster!

Morning runs are all about comfort..

The past few morning have been a bit chillier than the summer like temperatures I was experiencing a week ago.  But the drop in degrees haven’t deterred me from my morning strolls. I just have to dress a bit differently. I’ve said goodbye to the shorts and t-shirts and hello to the pullovers and long pants. My workout look today comes by way of the Men Only Hunt 10. My KossKoff Crew Sweater is the hunt prize at Fe Style.  I found the Dana Dot Pants at *AGATA*, because comfort is the key factor in workout wear. I’m keeping my neck warm in the Fluffy Scarf, the MOH10 gift from ::K::.

Updated Gifts…

One of my all time favorite group gifts are the Vasiforms sneakers at Vale Koer . They have updated their group gift to the V-3 Trainers. Just like the previous group gift. These shoes come with a texture HUD that makes the color combinations virtually endless. I plan on getting a lot of mileage out of these shoes!

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

Back in Black with a Triple Pack

Back in Black Collage

Fade to Black…

You can never go wrong in basic black. It fits most every situation and you always look good no matter what the occasion.  I was lucky enough to stumble across not one but THREE basic black looks and all it cost me was one touch of a slap of a board. The Leather Jacket Triple Pack is the Midnight Mania gift at !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. This beautifully crafted leather jacket comes in solo (just the jacket), with a black t-shirt or black turtleneck. This black combo comes in sizes S-L with two fitmesh sizes as well. Also included in the package are shapes in XS-XL.  Now go slap that board and get back in black!
