No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems

No shoes, no shirt, no problems

♫ The sun and the sand….
And a drink in my hand with no bottom,
And no shoes, no shirt, and no problems,
No problems. ♫

And I’m back with yet another FabFree Group Gift, this time From House of Ruby .  With swim season fast approaching and me realizing I have nothing but old system suits, I’m very thankful for a new set of trunks. The Fishy Swim Trunks are worn as an applier for a skintight look.  To get the group gift, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  . Then head on down to House of Ruby to to pick up your gift.

♫ Want a towel on a chair,
In the sand by the sea,
Want to look through my shades,
And see you there with me.
And no shoes, No shirt, and no problems… ♫

Anything But Ambiguous

AMBIGUOUS

 

Kicking down the cobblestones…

I’m strolling down the sidewalk trying my best not to look enigmatic in my attire. But judging by the stares I’m receiving, I feel I am failing in my endeavor…

Today’s outfit is anything but ambiguous, except for the fact that it comes from Ambiguous. The Sparkle Regency Gold Suit Set is the prize on the Midnight Mania Board. The suit included a hat and shoes and also has a texture changing HUD for the tie. This outfit would be great for Victorian or Steam Punk role play. The Midnight Mania Board is FREE to touch, as there is no group to join.

So ends my grammar lesson for today…. (thank you Dictionary.com)

Don’t Wait

Snapshot_001
Hi Fabulouses!  I am returning to the blog today to share news about a couple more group gifts that I thought you might be interested in learning about.

First…

LW Poses has a really sweet pose set out as a free group gift for the SLF&O inworld group.  This group is free to join and when you activate your tag above your head at the LW Poses store you can grab the Don’t Wait Pose as shown in my photo that includes the tree stump, flowers, bunny and a couple butterflies too.  The Siamese cat is also included to add to your avatar.  You’ll need to rez the tree stump to sit on it and activate the pose, however if you need a free place to rez your new pose, you can do so at Luane’s Magical World (with your free Luane’s World group tag!).  It’s  a really pretty spot for photography and there is even contest information at the landing point!  Take the TP from LW Poses to Luane’s Magical World, you’ll be glad you did!

and.. Second…

My cute summer outfit is also a free group  gift and can be picked up at Ghee with your Ghee inworld group tag activation.  I am in love with the beautiful aqua shaded shorts, tank top and even matching shoes!  This group does have a bit of a steep group join fee (500L), however the gifts that they  give out are generally very generous and you can pick up several of them on the VIP wall once you join.

Have Lens, Will Travel

Have Lens, Will Travel

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” 

Imogen Cunningham
1883 – 1976

I sometimes feel like I’m on the quest for my next photograph before the last one I took has been uploaded. But I say that in a good way. With each snap of the shutter, the better I become at my craft. I suppose the favorite thing about photography is that it takes me to places I’ve never seen before and through it, brings you there with me…..

Point and Shoot…

Today, I’m featuring a FabFree Group Gift from Zendra.  The Camera Necklace is FREE to our group members and our group is always FREE to join. The camera includes a texture changing HUD if you want it to be a color other than basic black. This is a must have for any photographer or tourist.

Digitally Delivered…

To pick up these group gifts, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me

It’s a beautiful morning…

…at least in Second Life. It’s a bit overcast and rainy in my neck of the woods. While checking on the horses this morning, I stopped for a rest on one of my hay carts and a little bird flew down and kept me company on my respite….

Fully enMESHed…

I’m acclimating to my new look very easily. I really thought it would be more traumatic than it has been (ok… trying the demos WAS a bit traumatic). But now that I have been fully enmeshed, I want you show you a FREE hunt gift from the enMESHed Into Spring 2017 Hunt. I found the blue egg hunt item at Fearsum and won the 2 Tone Sweater as a prize. Since I was feeling lucky, I stopped by BHB and tapped a few of their FREE, no group to join, Midinght Mania Boards and woke up this morning to a new pair of Dempsey Boots. These boots are perfect for my morning chores or a night out for line dancing. (like she’d EVER go line dancing, just sayin‘). And ladies, these boots are unisex so try to win a pair for yourself.

My little friend is telling me it’s time to get back to work. Later, ya’ll.

Lucky to be a New Man

New Man

(Mesh) Eyes without a face….

When i came back to Second Life, I spoke of how I was going to transform myself into a new and improved Carson of today, instead of my system Carson of 2012. Over the course of several months, I feel that my quest for a total makeover is complete (until something new and shiny catches my eye). I have finally converted over to my new mesh head.  I’m sure I’ll be tweaking the sliders for several weeks, but this is the new me (which, I think looks a lot like the old me).

Lucky Treasures…

I was lucky enough to score some FREE gifts from the lucky boards at Tig’s Treasures. I got the blue and white Canyon Leather Jacket and the Men’s Navy Chino’s while standing at the boards (I have so much fun on my free time). The boards rotate, so there are plenty of gifts to be had. The board is set to the group but it is FREE to join! I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear available at The Menstuff Lounge that I previously wore [HERE].

I hope you like the new “me” as much as I do!

You’re So Vain

Selfie

You had one eye on the mirror…

It’s no secret I like taking pictures of myself. Just look at the blog and that is very obvious. But, I think she had enough of me checking myself out in the mirror and told me I should go take a drive and give her a break from “all of this” as she motioned at me. I guess that’s what happens when my light shines too brightly…

Lately I’ve had a problem with people photobombing me. I don’t want them spoiling my perfect photographs with peace signs, rabbit ears and goofy smiles. As I’m driving down the road listening to …Carly Simon?!?  (She must have taken the car and left one of her CD’s in) I get the urge to take a shot with my iPhone and selfie stick (the best invention since the Polaroid camera). I pull over, aim and shoot… nothing is going to spoil this picture of just me in the country….

But you gave away the things you loved…

Today I’m wearing a FREE group gift from LaPointe & Bastchild Designs. The Swear “Classic” T-Shirt comes with a texture changing HUD with different shirt designs. I’m also pointing and clicking in a FREE group gift I picked up at Anbee. The Car Selfie pose  includes the full car, sitting pose and a selfie stick. Both of these groups are FREE to join!

(EDIT: I have been informed that the Anbee group is NOW $10L to join.)

Promise of Spring

Promise of Spring

 

Out like a lamb…

As we head into the last week of March, the weather in my part of the world is beginning to show signs that spring has finally arrived. We decided to take a walk (without the dogs in tow, they had their walk earlier today) to look at some of our newest additions to our ever growing menagerie of animals. While it is still cool outside, the sun is warm enough for us to shed our jackets and toss them over our shoulders…

The newest group gift at ::K:: is the Justin Accent Jean Jacket for both him and her. Either sex can choose to wear either the pink or the grayish blue jacket as a nice accessory piece. I am also wearing a gift from The Menstuff Lounge. Black Label Menswear has made a gift of the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers.  The gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are free but to join the group it will cost a one time fee of $50L.

Oh look, the lambs are kissing…. 🙂
