Luckily, I can get out of my uniform and into my skivvies from Emmalena Damour Designs. The Olive Drab  Military PT Uniform is one of the many $1L hunt gifts on the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. This gift is made the following body types:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Signature
  • Slink
  •  and also available in sizes XS-XL

The shirts is put on with an applier for that form-fitting feel. The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt runs through March 31st. Happy hunting!

Moooving on

Mooving on

Don’t wanna jinx it.

Does anyone remember those cartoon shorts with this poor little character on board a leaky ship, trying desperately to plug up the holes as more and more leaks spring up? Yeah, I guess one of the downsides of having two lives is that you’re kinda left scrambling when they decide to simultaneously blow up on you. Recently, the place I’ve been renting at closed down (there goes my recarpeting project), leaving me to decide if I wanted to live a nomadic Second Life again or find a new place. It was the latter for me, though after trying to wrangle several pieces of furniture and animals into good behavior I was starting to wish I had settled on the former before putting in the downpayment. But you know what they say about silver linings right? Amidst rogue picture frames, feathers and Commander being Commander, thanks to SL’s generous designers I managed to put this cute (inexpensive) outfit together.

For your active lifestyle

Freedom of movement if definitely a must for when you’re putting up the treehouse that rezzed upside down for some reason or just trying to stop your Polar Bear from eating the owls. The Zodiac Glitter tanks from Baby Monkey is just the right answer to these oddly specific problems and is currently one of many group gifts sitting on their main store wall. Even if you’re not currently being plagued by moving in woes, these tanks will prove to be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe. Coming in basic black, the Zodiac Glitter thanks feature each of the twelve zodiac symbols respectively and while I’m wearing the top with my own astrological symbol in the picture I’m rather tempted to try on the others as they come in a wide variety of glittery, eye-popping colors. These tanks are made for both Classic and Mesh avatars alike as the gift package includes the standard shirt layer as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega appliers. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee but I feel that the regular, high-quality gifts are well worth it. As stated above the Zodiac Glitter tanks are just one of many gifts currently available so go and get your grab on.

Flowery

Shopping on the Marketplace has become quite a habit of mine recently and on my last foray, I discovered these pretty pair of shorts from LS Diamond that are just perfect for slouchy, casual days. There was no resisting the flower, pastel print of these shorts and I appreciated the little detail of the drawstring as well. These shorts come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer as well as sizes for Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP and Maitreya mesh bodies. Pull your browser up and head to the LS Diamond marketplace store to get your pair of shorts for 1L. While you’re there, go ahead and grab another great looking dollarbie that’s available at the store as well.

A discovery

Making new discoveries in Second Life have never lost their novelty for me and one such discovery is Aura Design. The Lale fitted mesh hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is the past Christmas gift that the store has out for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group. This elegant half up do comes together with a hud of fifteen gorgeous colors and is yours for free with the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News group tag. The group itself is free to join so what are you waiting for if you have a group slot available that needs filling?

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to leave this right here:

Leek or Leak

Because it took me an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out if it was leak or leek. Oy.

Anticipation

HoR_Torn Boxers FF Gift 002 (2)

The waiting is the hardest part…

She said she’s be home by eight …. It’s now half past nine….  The bottle of champagne is still cold.  I hope she makes it home soon and not too tired for the night I have planned….

After reading Prudence’s post about this week’s FabFree Designer Friday. I stopped by House of Ruby and picked up the FREE FabFree Group Gift that Loki previously posted [HERE]. The Torn Boxers are worth mentioning again for that night in with your special someone.  These boxers come in system layers as well as Slink and Omega HUDs. To pick up this FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting the following:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. And remember, our Fabulous group is always FREE to join. Then head on down to House of Ruby to pick up your FREE gift.

I wish someone would hurry on home for her free gift….

In Denial

Snapshot_001
We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!

That Morning-After Feeling

Sweatpants

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I don’t know how she does it… She drinks like a sailor and then can be so chipper the next morning. While I on the other hand, feel like there’s someone inside my head attacking me with an ice pick and my mouth tastes like a family of Bigfoots had a picnic in there. We had a late night staff meeting midnight margaritas and I’m feeling the after effects today.  It was nice that she let me sleep in while she ran out to do errands. She could have left the bottle of aspirin a little closer though… I think I’ll just lay here for a bit in a new group gift at the Menstuff LoungeRobbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos has placed the Blue Pagoda Sweats out for group members ($50L joining fee). The outfit includes the sweatpants, sneakers and even a shirt (that I somehow lost in a game of stri … cards). Maybe I’ll try and get some work done while she’s out  and then a nap… yes definitely a nap…

Polkadot

Polkadot

I have mentioned before that November is prime Hunting season if you are looking for clothes to fill your wardrobe. And one of my favorite stores for lingerie and intimate apparel has joined in the Hunts, by offering a 1L gift as part of the Master’s of Style Hunt.

Hunting time…

For just 1L and a little hunting time down at the House of Ruby main-store, these Polkadot briefs can be yours to add to your ever expanding wardrobe, gentlemen.

What do you get?

If you’re worried about rather or not this gift will fit you, never fear. I have all the details. You’ll be getting the following layers:

  • Layer for system avatars
  • Slink Hud for mesh bodies
  • Omega Hud for mesh bodies

Polkadot 2

More hunts?

I wasn’t finished for the day though. I had one more hunt I wanted to finish up with for the evening. If you haven’t been checking out all the goodies in store for you with the Menstuff Hunt, do hurry. It ends November 30th, and you won’t want to miss out.

I stopped by Glint and picked up their 1L prize, which is this red crystal necklace for men. It is resizable and nicely detailed and added a terrific finishing touch to what I was wearing.

Until next time!

Some Mornings You Don’t Make it Out of Your PJs

Some Mornings You Don't Make it Out of Your PJs

Some mornings you just don’t make it out of your pajamas… but there is still work to be done. Good thing Luxe Paris has us gentleman covered. And it’s always nice to find a good set of quality sleepwear for men.

If you stop by Swank Events, Luxe Paris has out this mesh sleepwear set in blue set out as a FREE to all gift for gentlemen. It is one piece with an included alpha in all the standard sizes for easy fitting. It’s classic styling and isn’t cutesy. No footies or fantasy or fetish wear… just your standard run of the mill household pjs. Sometimes that’s nice for a change. Especially when you’re catching up with work in the early morning hours.

Speaking of which… I have a bit of catching up to do myself. In the meantime, enjoy the event. There’s currently a haunted house and a hunt going on that you won’t want to miss out on. Free gifts are to be had.

Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

Mistress of Jewells 2

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!
