Grab it while it’s free…

Dropping a quick post out for you all with some information you may enjoy.  The Resun group is currently FREE to join. I remember stopping by there a few times after seeing  items on the feeds (yes, I do look at the feeds from time to time) but never picking anything up because the group fee was too pricey for my wallet. But have no fear, right now you can join for FREE and pick up the latest group gift, the Martin Slim Shirt. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL and also comes with a texture change HUD to get just the right color. Things like this only happen once in a blue moon…

The Wearing of the Green

St Paddy

Kiss me, I’m Irish…

As I was putting on my Kiss Me, I’m Irish shirt, she shot me a disapproving look and was asked a one word question… “REALLY?” … So, it was back to the closet to find another green shirt. I found the Celtic Shamrock Tee by 7Tees that I bought on the Marketplace for just $75L. It’s not my fault she’s busy and can’t join me at the pub. All work and no play, yada yada yada… I slipped into my Shamrock Shoes, the FREE March group gift from Prey. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and I was out the door.

Dance an Irish Jig…

To get me in the mood for all this Irish revelry, I slipped on my FREE Jiggery Blarney Hat I picked up at the Jinx booth when I visited the Vintage Gacha Fair. If you want to dance an Irish jig, this hat even plays a tune. I saunter up to the bar to order my first beer of the evening and notice that her trusty man servant Ribald is the bartender for the evening. Either it’s just a coincidence or she thinks I’m going to need a ride home after too many pints….

Wiggling My Fingers

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulouses!  On March 8th, Slink announced that they had updated their mesh hands in the redelivery system to Bento for FREE for those that have already purchased their slink hands.  My IM box was lighting up like crazy with the news, and the notecards were flying in… Yet I put off going to pick up the free update worrying that it would be confusing, have some kind of costly catch and be time consuming to set up.

Procrastination

I went on with my week as per usual, all the while thinking…  “I should just go get them, and figure it out“, but it wasn’t until last weekend when there was some fun chat going on in the Fabulously Free in SL group about these new hands!  Fab member Brinlea cracked me up when she mentioned that she was so excited about her new Slink Dynamic Hands, that she was logging in just to watch them move around.  News of this inspired me to head down there and pick them up!

Boy was I surprised to find out that:

    1. They were easy to figure out.
    2. No purchase of new skin appliers was necessary as I could use the slink appliers I already had to match up to  my skins.
    3. There are plenty of affordable bento animations and poses available to make your hands move.
    4. It comes with basic poses, and nail add-ons.

See for yourself!

I made a couple of quick little GIF snaps of my avatar wearing the Slink Dynamic Hands with a Bento Animation so that you can see how the new hands have movement.  SO COOL! You’ll be logging in like Brinlea and I to watch your hands move too…

What’s “Bento” ?

Here’s how Jeremy Linden explains what bento actually is…  https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/enhanced-skeleton-project-bento-r773/

More information can be found on the Slink Blog – https://slinkstyle.com/2017/03/08/slink-dynamic-hands-aka-project-bento-comes-to-slink/

In closing…

In closing, I did want to mention that if you picked up the free update right away when it was released, that you should go back and make sure you have Version 1.3 as they fixed a couple bugs.  You should also know that you’ll need to be on a Bento compatible viewer to see the movement.

Burgers & Beer

Burger and Beers

That time of the day…

Each day, I set aside some time for myself. Whether it being finishing up work I brought home, spending some extra play time with the pup, or making a meal that consists of more than just macaroni and cheese. And on occasion, after an especially trying day, I’ll stop for a burger and some beers. Swinging by my local pub and catching up on all the gossip is also relaxing and I just let my worries wash away one beer at a time….

While on The Best of You Hunt, I found this three-piece outfit at Wilson’s Designs. The White Shirt with Tie, Men’s Vest and Black Pants are the $1L hunt gift. This outfit comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and includes alpha layers for non-mesh system bodies.  Oh good! It looks like my burger is up… “Hey bartender, how about a round for the house on me!”

The Best Of You

Snapshot_016

 Like watching paint dry…

Sitting here waiting for my jeep to dry out (yeah, it’s still very soggy) is like watching paint dry. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy around the man cave tinkering on projects. I’ve taken a hiatus from the whole mesh head thing (let’s not go there).  I also went out on a hunt to occupy my time.  I made a few stops on The Best of You Hunt and put together an outfit that I can knock around the garage in. At AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS I came across the Open Front Standing Collar Shirt. I found the Straight Fit Black Men’s Jeans at Dixie Designs and at Lady Dragon’s Design I scored the GreenFlo Shit Kickers. All the hunt gifts on The Best of You Hunt are $1L each.  Oh and if you are thinking about nosing around my man cave, just remember, Chomper is always on duty….

BelleEpoqueNantraVintageFair
Hi there Fabulouses!  Yesterday, in Astrid’s Vintage? or New Age? Blog Post, she mentioned that there are free gifts at almost every vendor participating in The Vintage Fair and she wasn’t kidding about the amount!  There are tons to pick up – with no group join.  I found a couple  in the bunch that I wanted to show off to you today.

Your garden grows where you water it…

The sweet summer dress I am wearing today is called Janae and can be found as a free gift at the Belle Epoque display.  This dress comes in one fitmesh size that should fit most.  The fit and texturing are top notch and you’ll be glad you stopped in for it!

The other item I wanted to mention is this Watering pose by Nantra that was also free, and was found at their vendor display.  This pose is very natural and actually has sprinkling water coming out of the nozzle lol.  Truth be told, I am not very talented in the garden, but…  I can handle the watering.

**  Note:  Some of the gifts at this event are set for sale at 0L and some are set to deliver on touch.  If you are having trouble buying it, try touching it instead.

Day of the Night Elf

Day of the Night Elf

Springtime in Darnassus…

After seeing Kat’s post [HERE], I got a yearning for my World of Warcraft days. The battles, the never-ending quests, trade chat …, the raid wipes… ok .. not so much of a yearning, but a fond remembrance. I too headed down to Feyline Fashions and found the male gift for the Into the Blue Hunt.  The Reilly Dusk Outfit is put on with Omega Appliers (something I’m still learning… don’t ask about last weeks beard dilemma 😖) and also has some accessories to complement the look. This gift and all the other gifts on the Into the Blue Hunt are just $1L each. I don’t know why people would invest so much time in a game… seriously…  😉

On Patrol

On Patrol

Attention…

…We are on the lookout for a stolen Jeep… Seriously, being on patrol in this part of town is not a fun shift. I’ve seen bodies, burned vehicles, vandalized buildings and that was just at the station house. I may not have the best beat to patrol, but I look my finest in the FREE group gift I found at Brii Underground. The Policeman Uniform comes in a fitted mesh size along with sizes XS-XL. Accessories include a cap, handgun and sunglasses. Now put your hands in the air ( like you just don’t care)…

Kiss & Make Up

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses :).  What a relief!  As you can see, he has almost forgiven me for yesterdays swamping adventures.  Aside from the mantra he is repeating to himself out loud with his eyes closed, over and over again: “I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding“, I think he’s doing ok with it.  His jeep is a little soggy, but will be ok after a day in the sun…  It may take just a few more kisses.

Actually…  the more I think about it, I feel…  If this is my punishment for stalling his jeep in a swamp, I may just do it again tomorrow!

Coming Together

Carson and I have collaborated on a blog entry so that we can share news about a couples matching Glam or Grunge Hunt prize and a really sweet couples pose that is available as a free group gift.  This post is packed full of freebies for both you and your sweetie.

For Her

On myself you can see me wearing the black and white Lauren Dress which is available as a free gift for the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Trashed.  This dress is available in several mesh and mesh body specific sizes, including an alpha.   Make sure to bring your guy with you, because there is a gift for him inside that hidden rose icon too!

For Him

Carson is displaying the Simon Shirt which is the male offering at Trashed for the Glam & Grunge Hunt.  He was also lucky enough to score the Drifter Jeans in rust for free on the lucky board while he was at Trashed which work very nicely with the top.

A Kiss On The Cheek

This adorable kiss on the cheek pose for two is available as a free group gift at Agape Poses with a free group join.  You will actually find a whole wall full of couples poses that are perfect for bloggers or photography.

Say, “Cheese!

Say "Cheese!"

After a week of having no cell phone, I was so excited to get my replacement phone in the mail today! In fact, I’ve been running around taking pictures with it all day… and making a bit of a nuisance of myself, I think. I’m still sad that I lost a bunch of photos that I neglected to back up, but I guess some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. Hopefully, the 99 cents a month that I’ve decided to fork over to upgrade my iCloud account will keep this from happening in the future. 😛

Ok, enough babbling about my sad phone story.

Sweater Weather

This cute skirt and sweater combo is the March group gift from RiR Life. I love the detailed texture of the sweater; it’s romantic and sporty and perfect for those late winter/early spring days when you still need a little warmth. The outfit comes as one piece and is sized for:

  • Standard Classic Avatar (one size)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

Smile!

I found this cute selfie pose by Mirukuti on the Marketplace for just 5L. It does not come with a phone prop, so I used the one that came with my Vista Animations Miriam AO. I’m sure any phone prop would work fine, though.

Thank goodness these deer are being so patient with me. Cheese! 😀
