Pick Up! I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

Pick Up! I'm Calling You On My Banana PhoneThe banana phone is not necessarily a very effective mode of conversation, however it’s worth a shot when nothing else works and if it still fails at the very least – onlookers will be entertained.

In this blog post I have news about a new group gift at Poeme and also am revisiting Just Ordinary to show off a free instore group gift.

More of the extraordinary

I had recently blogged a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift that is available at Just Ordinary and if you liked that one shown here – you’ll love this one too!  The Char Dress in Denim Flowers that you see me wearing today is available as a free gift for Just Ordinary inworld group members (free to join!)

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic

Now About Those Shoes…

When you join the Poeme inworld group (has a 1L group join fee), you gain access to the Double Happy Roses Chucks in the floral Rhyme print.  They were just what I needed for today’s ensemble, so it was perfect timing that I came by them!

Shoe Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Unrigged + Alpha Layer

Just One Last Thing!

The Endless Summer Hello Sunshine pose that I am using today includes the bananas (for making phone calls of your own) and is available in an instore gacha at 50L per play at Le Poppycock!

At the Gate

At the Gate
Even if you are standing still on the outside of the gate together, you are moving forward.

On Her

Love is wearing the brand new group gift at American Bazaar.  This plum halter dress is beautifully textured and has the appearance of smooth silky satin.  It puckers and drapes in all the right spots and is yours for a one time join fee of 10L.  You can find this free group gift behind the reception desk on the wall.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Fine / Curvy
  • TMP

On Him

Costarlos is where you’ll find my Chino Black Pants and Lucas Black Waistcoat & Shirt as newly released items, priced at 55L each.  These items will set you back a few lindens, but it looked so nice with her dress and were such a steal that I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to wear them.   I should also mention that the Waistcoat and Shirt Set come with an extensive texture change HUD.  My Brown Dress shoes are available at Gabriel as a free group gift with a free group join.

Two Thumbs Up

Dope
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you had fun weekend. Considering my adventurous weekend that started with an afternoon of mojitos, turned into a ladies night adventure with my gal pal Love, and ended with two days worth of friends, family, and lots of indulgent food choices: today needed to include healthy food choices and exercise. You know the kind of weekends I’m taking about. The ones where your jeans fit on Friday but are a bit tight by Monday morning, and ultimately, it was all worth it!

So, in the name of good health, I picked up this FREE group gift outfit from Lavarock Creations. It’s true, there’s an outfit for everything, even exercise. This cute set comes with a color change hud with 5 color choices so you can change the main color of the shorts and top. The Lavarock Creations group is FREE to join.

Sizes included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique) / Maitreya Lara / Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis)

P.S. There’s also a male group gift available at Lavarock Creations, you may have seen it in Carson’s post “Amped.”
Thumbs Up
Wouldn’t it be nice if all it took was looking the part to get the job done? One can daydream. Maybe I will just hang out in Second Life a moment or two longer. Exercise can wait! Lately I’ve been very much enjoying the addition of bento hands to Second Life. It’s been fun experimenting with the expressiveness. This fun thumbs up pose is a FREE gift from Touchic. There’s no need to join a group, just pay the vendor zero linden. A quick tip, if you’re a Maitreya Lara wearer like I am, you’ll want to use your hud to turn off your hand animations so this animation can work. Alright, time to go get that workout done!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – TRUTH HAIR Karlie –  variety

Gone Surfin’

Gone Surfing

A picture is worth a 144 characters…

She texts me, telling me about her horrible experience with her online booking for her spa weekend. She asks me where I am, as she’s home and I’m nowhere to be found. Instead of taking the time to type out what I am doing, I just thought that a picture would convey the answer to her question just as easy… Yeah, I know I’m in for it when I get home… /me sighs

Too cute for my own good….

I wanted to let you know about a hunt that is happening on the Marketplace called the Too Cute Marketplace Hunt. Each store that is participating has two gifts somewhere in their marketplace store that just costs 5L. The gifts will be denoted with two adorable kittens, letting you know that you’ve discovered the prize. I found the G-litter-othic Mesh T-Shirt at :.C!L.: for just 5L. The shirt comes in fitted mesh for the Signature, Sling and TMP body styles. The Too Cute Marketplace Hunt runs through June 5th.  I paired it with the Robin Male Shorts, a FREE group gift by Lavarock Creations I previously showed [HERE]. I’m also wearing the TopGun Retro Glasses, a FREE group gift at A&D Clothing.

This Little Piggy didn’t go to market…

My pose today is called Selfie Boy, a FREE group gift from Little Piggy. The phone comes with the pose in five colors. There are several FREE poses available to group members and joining the group is FREE. TIP: Take the elevator down one level from the landing point to get to Little Piggy.

Now this little piggy better get home before he risks getting into more trouble than he already is…

Amped

Amped

 

Morning rush…

While most people are still sleeping on this holiday Monday in the United States, I’m up at dawn and ready to catch a few waves before breakfast. While she’s off on her mini spa vacation, I slept in the van on the beach, just to be one of the first in the water. I’ll take a few waves then set out to all the backyard BBQs I’ve been invited to.

Stripes or solids?

I found two group gifts perfect for this mornings boarding. By joining the group for FREE at Lavarock Creations, you can pick up the Robin Male Shorts. The shorts come with a texture HUD with five different colors that you can choose between solids or stripes for ten different looks. The Robin Shorts are fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

Not a crying towel…

I also found the Tropical Beach Towel FREE group gift at ::K::. This towel comes in both male and female versions and can be worn over one or both shoulders. The towel also comes with a built in resizer to get the perfect fit. I’m also featuring another pose out of the Surf’s Up series by Le Poppycock. Amped can be won from the gacha machine for just 50L.
I’ve worked up an appetite after surfing. I hope there are ribs at the BBQ. Or at least a pulled pork sammich, maybe…?

 Not Just for the Birds

Not Just for the Birds

 

The Pen is Mightier than the Beak….

With my coffee in one hand and my notepad in the other, I decided to head out to the yard to make notes for my next post. My goal is write a post about the other group gift at Angel DELUXE that I didn’t mention in my surfing post [HERE]. As I’m scribbling notes … comes in classic avatar sizes XS-XL… comfy look and feel…. FREE to members but the group has a 10L joining fee… blah blah…. an owl swoops down and takes my pen from my hand and perches on the garden wall… FINE! You write my next post….

Please allow me to introduce myself….

I’m Owlson.  Carson has so graciously allowed me to finish his post today. (I personally think he has writer’s block) I’ve just flown in from the Tres Chic Event event that I read about from Serena [HERE] and [HERE] and Love [HERE]. While I was circling the event, I was asking HOOever was around if there were gifts that were not geared strictly for the hens. I was fortunate enough to find a flock that was looking for the same things I was.  We soared from booth to booth finding great  nest home and garden items. I’ll list them below to save you from me trying to imitate Caiben’s droll sense of humor….

  • CHEZ MOI – Teal Wooden Bench
  • [Merak] – Cup and Notebook
  • Serenity Style- Rusty Birdhouse
  • Fashiowl Poses – Happy Birthday Gift w/ Owl Pose

If you noticed, you can even get a lifelike version of me in a perched  pose position from Fashiowl. All you need to do to get these great gifts is join the Tres Chic group for FREE and wear the group tag while picking up gifts at the Tres Chic Event.
This blogging gig is easy. I wonder if they have an opening for an owl who looks better in glasses than Caiben does?

EDIT: The gift from Fashiowl is IN the owl which is an owl balloon… I still like the owl….

Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

Hearts in their eyes…

Happy Friday! I’m just firing off a quick post to let y’all know that Drunk-Panda Poses has moved. And that they also have a new group gift!

There are also past group gifts still available.
Now can I have a chicken wing?  Don’t slap my hand away!!!

More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day, and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! XD

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for fitmesh (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! 😀
