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?

Miami Vice

Miami Vice

 

Nostalgia – 80’s Style…

It’s been a thing lately. I’ve been yearning all things circa 1980’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’m at that point in my life I’m starting to miss all the things that influenced the person I became. I have been rediscovering the movies, the music and the TV shows. I caught an episode of Miami Vice and remembered the fashion trend that the show started. The sports jackets over pastel t shirts. Neon and pastel colors, deck shoes were all trendy fashion back in the day.

When Neons and Pastels were the craze…

My look today mimics the style that Don Johnson (Dakota Johnson’s dad, for you youngsters) made famous. I found the Daniel Blazier, a new release at A&D Clothing (not free) for that jacket over t-shirt look. I then turned to the Marketplace and browsed the Pepper store for other pieces for my outfit. The Chino Trousers in light plum (10L) and the all white Slip on Sneakers (2L) makes my 1980’s Miami look complete.

A Night at the Theatre

At the Theatre

Magical…

I enjoy the theatre. Not just the shows but the overall experience. There is something magical that happens when the lights dim and the orchestra begins to play. You are whisked away into a story, and for a couple of hours, forget your own worries…

Showstopper…

The outfit today is a real showstopper. The Alexander Mesh Outfit is a beautiful suit that will most definitely turn heads. This is a FREE group gift from Lara Augusta Carnelian. This one-piece suit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and could be used not only for a night out for a show and dancing, but also for role-play. The Lara AC group is FREE to join. I am also wearing two group gifts from Gabriel. Both the Studded Gloves and the Shearling Shoes are FREE Gifts to group members.

A Rose by any other name….

It is so glad to see that The Rose Theatre is still in existence. This a lovely building with so many intricate details that it feels like a new experience every time I visit. It does feel new, it’s been five years since i last visited.  🙂

The Buried Man

Buried Man

It’s the end of the world as we know it…

But why sweat the small stuff. I’ve got a shack to live in, a fire to keep me warm, and a large broken statue that creeps me out at night. Who could ask for more? I was lucky enough to win this outfit at the Lucky Board at Angel DELUXE (before the world went to hell in a hand basket). The Desert Outfit can be won if your lucky letter come up. You do need to be a Angel DELUXE group member to click the board, but the join fee is just 10L. I’m also wearing the Shearling Boots,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel and the TopGun Retro Glasses, also a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. I had a lot of fun exploring The Buried Man Sim. Check it out!

Simply Amazing

Amazing

Oh, what a feeling…

In just a few short days I will have the next 2 months and change to myself, answering to nobody and only having to cater to her needs… (uhh …I meant my dog, not sure who you were thinking I was talking about.) The pressure of the past month are slowly slipping into just a memory and I have nothing but sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. And you can also look amazing in the group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This month’s gift is a green striped Men’s Shirt. This shirt comes in the stadard XS-XL sizes plus fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

I paired the shirt with  new items from A&D Clothing. The Patrick Pants and the Nautics Shoes can be purchased individually or in fatpacks. I always choose the fatpacks because like Pokemon, I got to catch them all. Y’all have an amazing day!

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 – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

Air Evac

Up, Up and Away…

Be ready at a moments notice…. We aren’t supermen, but to those who need us, we can appear to be. We airlift out the wounded and drop them at the closest medical facility, be it a field hospital or on a ship….

Cammo all around….

Don’t get all fatigued (see what I did there?) trying to get this gift.  Just head on down to Spazio and join the group for FREE and pick up the NVB 14 Outfit. This gift includes a shirt, cammo pants, shoes and dog tags. this outfit is great for military role-play and so is the sim I visited. Cayanan Island has a military base and the people there were very friendly.

Catch a Wave

Catch a Wave

Surf’s up…

It’s finally time to head down to the beach for some much needed relaxation. I grabbed the board and I’m hoping the waves are big enough catch a few rides. The beach bunnies are already starting to flock to see who will catch the biggest wave of the day…

Tiki Time…

My look today is thanks in part to Prudence, who did a wonderful job on her Designer Friday post on Faboo, that you can read [HERE]. She mentioned there were group gifts for men, so I popped over to see what was available. With several gifts on the board to choose from, I decided to grab them all and see what would look good together. I paired up the Tiki Open Shirt and Low Rider Shorts in pistachio for a tropical flair. While the group is free to join, the gifts are  pay 1L , get 1L refunded.

Gacha every time…

I normally stay away from gacha machines. My one exception to that rule is when it comes to poses. I recently saw the *Surf’s Up* pose gacha at Le Poppycock and decided if I needed a surfboard pose, I’d be back…. long story short, I went back, and played… several rounds… The Catch a Few pose is just one of the few many poses I picked up for just 50L a pull. The surfboard has a color change HUD to give your board multiple looks.  I’m sure I’ll be showing you many more of this set before the days of summer have passed…

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

 

Blowin’ in the wind….

There is nothing more refreshing than an unexpected breeze to start blowing. I love the feeling of the air rushing past my body. Even my dog loves it enough to point her nose in the direction of the gust and lets the wind blow her ears back…

Not always equal….

I found a couple more L’Homme gifts for today’s look.  You can pick up the Asymmetric Jacket, The FREE L’Homme gift, at Gabriel. Another L’Homme gift can be picked up at GizzA Creations . The FREE Boots are next to the Oversized Sweater that I posted [HERE]. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Chess Jeans is another FREE group gift in the building of freebies at Egoisme that I talked about [HERE]
