Outbreak

Nothing but steam…

Ok, not the ideal place for my radiator to spring a leak, but I’m have to make due.  I saw a house a mile or so back. I could go there and ask for help, but it did look old and abandoned. maybe I should walk up ahead and made find some help.

Maybe I should have stayed with the car. The farther I walk the foggier it gets. Today I’m wearing the Wyatt Open Shirt a FREE group gift at Ashbury. The group is also FREE to join. I’m still wearing the Brooklyn Pants (with a different texture) from TentatioN  I modeled yesterday [HERE] along with the Barcelona Shoes by A&D Clothing.

The fog is starting to thin a bit. I think I see someone up ahead. They seem to be wearing a fedora and a striped sweater. I made it to my destination, this has to be Elm Street!

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

Light Reading_002

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

Brooklyn Bridge is Falling Down

Brooklyn Bridge

Crazy Dayz…

Every year, around this time, I’m a bit stressed. It’s crunch time at work… I’m always tired and a grumpy cat. Every little thing gets under my skin. It’s times like this I tend to wander off by myself because, trust me, I’m my own best company. But, I know in just a few short weeks, the stress will be gone and I can take a nice long (and well deserved) break.

Cross that bridge when you come to it…

Today, I found the Brooklyn Outfit at TentatioN. This is a for the SLF&O group members. Not a member? The group is FREE to join! This outfit comes with a texture changing HUD for both the shirt and the pants for several different looks to suit your needs. On my feet I have the Barcelona Shoes from A&D Clothing. This also includes a texture HUD for different laces and soles.

Countdown… T-4 weeks…

Do You Believe In Fate?

Snapshot_002
Hello there Fabulouses!  I believe it was purely fate that these two amazing royal blue group gifts by GOS Boutique and Blanco came out at the same time.  These two items colour match so perfectly, it would seem as though they were planned to be released together, but I’m sure…  it must just be a coincidence!

Fate only takes you so far…

Once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen, so go grab these gifts!

Your first stop is to Blanco to pick up the beautiful halter Stasia Dress that is a free group gift.  Blanco is a small shop right next to Scandalize and the gift is very easily found as soon as you enter.   I am displaying this dress in a gorgeous shade of blue, however it does come with a texture change HUD that allows for 10 solid colours and 3 prints.  This group is free to join.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya

Fate pulls you in different directions

It’s a good thing that it does, because you’ll need to take a teleport to GOS Boutique to grab the latest group gift called Karrueche in the colour of Snorkel Blue. These shoes come in XXS-L sizes as well as fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh feet.  The group is 250L to join

Fraternity Row

Fraternity Row

The countdown is on…

With only  a few weeks left until summer break, things are beginning to liven up here on campus. The the warmer weather is bringing study groups out to the quad, fraternity pranks are in full swing, and me, I’m just headed to the Union to hang out with friends and grab a bite to eat. All the while, I keep telling myself “Just three more weeks”…

GIVE ME A C….

Today’s collegiate look comes mostly by the way of the Marketplace.I found the Jonathon Outfit by [[>CaKe!<]] for just $1L. Wearing the University Jacket and Sneakers, I was not happy with the system jeans that were included, I stopped by Free Dove and grabbed the FREE JZ- Men’s Classic Blue Jeans by Dolome Designs. Accessorizing this look, I picked up the dollarbie Big Headphones also by [[>CaKe!!<]] on the Marketplace.
Anyone know where a kegger is happening?

Late Night Slice

Late Night Slice

Got the munchies….

We’ve all been there. It’s late and the rumbling in your stomach starts. You look at the clock and know the only place still open is that corner pizza joint. If you hurry, you still might be able to grab a pie before they close of the night.

Stars and Scars…

Tonight, I’m wearing the Starboy Hoodie, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt 9 gift from American Bazaar. What else would I throw on to run out to get pizza with. I didn’t even bother to comb my hair.  The Morinaga Hair is a FREE group gift from Scars. The Scars group is FREE to join.

Whole or by the slice…

And last but not least, my food of choice is a FREE gift from Lorien at the Redeux Event. The Pizza Box has enough pizza to feed all your friends as it gives a slice to anyone who touches it. You’ll be the hit of any party with the never-ending pizza slice.

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

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

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

Blaze

Blaze

 

Lighting up…

As a former smoker, (yeah, I was a bad boy in my misspent youth) you never get over the urge to light one up and take a deep drag off a cigarette. And the worst time to get those cravings is when I’m under the weather, I don’t know why that is, it just happens. But I also know that cigarettes are like potato chips, I can’t have just one, so it’s best they stay in the pack. I’ll start out taking about the pose. Blaze by +Kiss Me Poses+ is made for bento hands, but I was lucky enough to make my clumsy non-bento ADAM hands work… PLEASE UPDATE ME SOON!!!!! The smoking cigarette (ahem) is included but the cigarette package is not. And before anyone asks, (and I know I will get asked) the cigarette pack came from a pose I showed way back [HERE].

The Last (one) Forever…

My outfit is the second group gift available from Spazio. (I showed the first one [HERE] The A-10 Jeans and Shirt are FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. Also included with this outfit are glasses that hang off the collar, a chain for your right pants pocket and shoes. The photo location is The Last Forever. I highly recommend this sim for a location shoot. There are lots of cool things to see and explore.

Fallin’ For TP7 and zOOm

TP7
Oh Hello Fab Free! I am totally fallin’ for the FREE gifts at the current round of The Project Se7en paired with this group gift dress from zOOm! All puns aside, there are some fabulous freebies to be had in celebration of TP7′s anniversary. If you happen to follow me on Flickr you’ve probably seen these photos up for a few days now. I apologize that it took me so long to get this post done, it’s a big one!

zOOm it to Me

This bright floral dress is a FREE group gift from zOOm. The zOOm designs group is just 99 linden to join and there is more than one group gift currently available. Perfect for spring and even a casual Easter gathering, the floral print dress has a texture change hud that lets you choose between 8 variations of this beautifully busy floral print. The gift also includes the following body-specific sizes.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Belleza Isis/Freya/Venus
  • Slink Hourglass/Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

TP7 Close

Gifts at The Project Se7en

Since there are so many FREE gifts at this anniversary round of TP7 (and I’m only showing a few) I’ll do my best to talk about them starting from top to bottom, or in this case head to toe! First, you will need to join The Project Se7en group and wear the tag to get the gifts. As you travel around the event you’ll see the celebratory cakes at most booths. Just click the cake at each booth and your gift will be automatically sent to you. First, I love this hairstyle from Sintiklia. It’s a fitted bento hairstyle that comes in the brown-pink color Pru is wearing, and a black-white version (not shown). Each color also comes in 2 sizes.

Next up, what’s not to like about these adorable glasses. Love even commented on my Flickr photo about how cute they are! These glasses are the FREE TP7 gift from BADa. If needed they can be sized up or down with a touch menu.

The dainty nose ring Pru has in is also a FREE gift at TP7. This one is from Tableau Vivant. The Tableau Vivant gift is a set of nose rings in gold and silver. There is a left side ring and a right side ring in both metal tones.

The slight gradient to Pru’s lip color is due to the FREE TP7 gift from Wednesday. I like that it is partially transparent. This single color applier works with Catwa heads only.

For the next and final gift in this post, you’ll need to take a closer look at Pru’s feet in the top photo. I love these sandals! The “Carved Camellia Clogs” are the FREE TP7 gift from Konpeitou. Just in case you are confused, like I was at first, you’ll need to wear the shoe layer that matches the height/position of your foot. These cute shoes come with a color change hud as well so you can match the straps to your outfit, and change the carved part from plain to colored.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Don’t Fear the Reaper

Don't Fear the Reaper

Enter if you dare…

I pray that my words aren’t too cutting today as I show you the FREE gift I have reaped for you today. Today’s gift involves very little in the way of travel, so you can just grab it from the comfort of your crypt couch. This FREE group gift  is found in the Loca Como Tu Madre group notices. The Reaper Outfit comes complete with shirt, pants, boots, mask and a scythe. The Loca Como Tu Madre group is FREE to join.

Now that I’ve hacked this gift, perhaps you can help me dissect the next gift on my list…
