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.

March On!

March On_001

March on!

We are marching into the last week of March, and I have my gold shoes that I found at the end of the rainbow… or to be more specific, I found them as part of the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. For just 1L and a little hunting time for the icon, you can pick these pretty gold pumps up.

For your 1 little Linden, you’ll get heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet all in one package for that tiny little sum. It’s well worth the trip to the Lindy Modern & Retro. Plus while you are there, pick up the other hunt gifts. There are many out! One is free, and the rest are all 1L as well. You can stock up on your shoe wardrobe!

A touch of green…

I needed a dress for my new dress shoes, so I picked up the pretty green dress from Ass Kicking Angels. It is the free FabFree group gift out for March! It includes both this lovely dress as well as the matching necklace (which has a pretty clover attached to it).

You’ll get the following sizes:

  • Standard classic avatar
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

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!

Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” 😉

But it’s all for a good reason: Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins, Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay! (Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty Tule and Leather Dress from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store: Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ❤

Have Love Will Travel

Snapshot_001
Hitting The Road

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am unsure if it is the warm spring weather or this new outfit I just picked up for free at The Designer Circle Anniversary round, but I was feeling the need to get out and stretch my legs.  Now… Where to go?  I stopped in at Kathryn’s to see if she and Ripley would like to join me, but it looks like Ripley has already led her off on another adventure of their own!  I think I’ll just close my eyes and point to a spot on the map.

It’s Worth The Trip

If you like the outfit I am in today, you should know that the Casey Outfit by Finale Couture – that includes the jacket, pants and Slink add-on shoes is a free gift (priced at 0L!) at this Anniversary Round of The Designer Circle.  In fact… many of the participating designers have freebies or dollarbies you can pick up, just set out on the ground of their displays.

Casey Outfit Sizes & Compatibility:

  • Shoes: Slink
  • Jacket – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer + Fitmesh
  • Pants – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer

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…. 🙂

One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

Looking for a match…

I’m still looking for my perfect match…. I’m of course talking about a mesh head to call my very own. I search, I try the demo, I add skin appliers … and I’m still searching. Someday I will get my very own head… someday….

I found today’s outfit at the Menstuff Lounge. PowerDesign has put on the board  the Rick Outfit as a free group gift. The three piece outfit comes with a cruiser jacket with shirt and tie, jeans and oxford shoes. There is a one time $50L joining fee for the Menstuff group, but with the amount of gifts on the wall, how could you pass it up.

And so my quest continues…

You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…
You Give Me Butterflies 3

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!
