Telephone 

Modulus - Riano Jacket

I call you one the telephone…

Some days are just crazy, the phone doesn’t stop ringing, the emails are plentiful and the texts are nonstop.  But,  even though my days seem crazy I make sure to take time to communicate with those around me that matter, even if it’s just something silly to let them know I’m thinking of them.

 But you’re never home…

As I was touring the Ultra Event, (happening between now and February 15th)  I came across a FREE gift at the Modulus display. The brown Riano Jacket is FREE for members of the Ultra Event Group. The group is FREE to join, do there’s really not an excuse to grab it up.

I gotta get a message to you…

I’m all about wearing winter scarves, so I’m still wearing the FREE scarf I received from (red)sand as part of the free group gift for reaching 5000 members that I previously showed [HERE].  Hold on, I have another call… “Hello… What? Ok, Ok , I’ll stop and pick up milk on the way home…”

Say Anything

Say Anything

 In your eyes, I am complete…

After seeing Pru getting Footloose and Love Dirty Dancing, I thought I’d play along with my take on Lloyd Dobler from one of the best movies of the 1980’s, Say Anything. This well known iconic pose of Lloyd holding his boombox (yeah, had one back in the day) above his head, belting out Peter Gabriel’s  In Your Eyes is one of movie’s most recognizable scenes. Lloyd found David’s Black Coat as the FREE prize on the Midnight Mania Board at Tiar.  He also picked up the FREE Group Gift Men’s Mesh Steel Blue Austin Tee by Cold Ash at their display at the Men Only District

When I want to run away, I drive off in my car…

I followed Pru and also played the gacha at [Since1975] and was lucky enough to get the rare BoomBox/C on my first try. (/me cracks his knuckles) My car, a Ferrari, (much better than Lloyd’s car in the movie) is a FREE gift at Sinsity Race Track. Take a spin around the track. It only takes 10 minutes.

♫ But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are… ♫

Black Sheep of the Family

R2A Teal

Totally Unjustfied…

You all may have noticed that the ladies of this fabulous blog like to pick on me. And to be honest, I have NO IDEA (rolls his eyes) why they would be like that. OK, I admit that I deserve every bit of teasing I receive. I have become FabFree’s black sheep and it’s a title I wear proudly. As I’m standing with my pallid brethren, let me tell you about the newest group gift at R2A Creations. The Teal Jeans & Shirt outfit also includes shoes and a cap. This outfit also comes in the standard sizes XS – XL and also for the following body styles:

  • ADAM
  • SLINK
  • Aesthetic
  • TMP
  • Signature

In addition, sizes are available for child and babies also.

And now that the weekend is fast approaching, just WHAT kind of trouble can I get myself into?  🙂

Gonna Soak Up the Sun 

ADRIATIC line Blue Hoodie & Jean Shorts

Gonna tell everyone to lighten up…

I’m feeling the need to head down to the beach, find a sunny spot to sit and dig my toes in the sand. And today’s outfit is perfect for such an excursion. I was lucky enough to win the Men’s Jean Shorts with Dark Blue Belt from the Midnight Mania Board at Adriatic line.

The water’s still free…

And so is another group gift I found at Adriatic line. By joining the Third Life group (type or paste in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/22874c32-502f-f4d9-fbdc-97205dad4b13/about   and join the group for just $10L , the Dark Blue Men’s Hoodie can be yours by clicking the vendor.

Every time I turn around you’re looking up, I’m looking down…

My pose today comes from PosESion. The Hunter pose pack is just $60L as were many other pose packs located on the second floor for both men and women. I’m just going to sit here a and remember that I’ve got no one to blame for every time I feel lame…

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…. 😍

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.

Safe With You

westendffgroupgift

Hi there Fabulouses!  Carson (aka Muscles – rawr) was kind enough to take one for the team and snuggle up to me for a bit so I could get a snapshot to show off the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift that has been generously donated by [ west end ] .  Normally on FabFree you see us showing off free clothing or home items, but today what we are actually showing you is the pose!

About the pose…

The [ west end ] Safe With You Couples Pose is very well made with natural positioning, and is modifiable so that you can adjust the pose balls around making a good fit.  This pose would be fab for bloggers, photographers or anyone wanting to capture a cozy moment with someone special!  If you’d like a free copy of this beautiful embrace, simply adjust your Fabulously Free in SL group tag above your head and TP to [ west end ] to obtain one!

Carson’s Take

While Carson was waiting for me to make my bazillion photography adjustments to get my one and only shot, he managed to snap a few photos as well that show off different angles of the pose… evidently before I even had a chance to get my lipstick on or his vest off (and never mind why I needed his vest off….  There was interference!)!

Below is one of his photos featuring a full body shot, and if you’d like to know what Carson is wearing, you can see his credits [HERE].
