Lush Lunch

Lush Lunch

Do you remember those TV shows back in the early 2000s about groups of girlfriends, sitting around and having lunch in a posh restaurant in New York City, or perhaps sipping on sour apple martinis while laughing about the craziness of life?  My lifestyle clearly doesn’t really lend to drinking martinis during the lunch hour in RL, but when it comes to SL, it’s all about gadding about town, and pulling up at a fancy restaurant to have whatever food I so desire…

Oh You Fancy

I needed the perfect outfit for my imaginary lunch at a fancy restaurant.  Luckily for me, Rosary has put out a new group gift that is quite literally a showstopper.  It comes with a colour change HUD so you can choose from a bunch of gorgeous colours, depending on your mood.  I felt spring-like and went with the appealing lavender shade.  You can pick up your own dress by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens. There are two other just as gorgeous outfits out for you, making it totally worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Something Different

Although I’m stepping out in some pretty sexy clothing, I had to bring my own flavour to the mix with the little stars you see tatooed under my eyes.  You can grab this striking look by La Malvada Mujer at The Cosmetic Fair by joining the group for free and clicking on the gifts you’ll find peppered about the place.  This look comes with two appliers including Omega and Genesis Cosmetics.

Cheers!

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere

wellmadegg
Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s gotta be 5 o’clock somewhere right?  I don’t drink all that often, but on a hot summer day, I enjoy a margarita – frozen or on the rocks, no matter! If it’s really good tequila, I’ll even drink it straight ;).    I know a lot of people take offence to tequila, and  I do have a rocky relationship with it myself.  The way I see it is this…  Tequila is kind of like that bad-ass boyfriend you know is going to be detrimental for you in the end, but you put up with his beastly behavior and risk it because you are enjoying the ride.

It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care

What inspired my fast forward into mid summer beverages on the patio, is this breezy little floral blouse I picked up at Wellmade as a free group gift!  It comes in fitmesh and several mesh body sizes as listed below and also includes a texture change HUD that allows for another print as well.  I have added the vendor ad below so that you can see them both 🙂

[WellMade] Alee Top

The Wellmade inworld group is free to join, and there are several group gifts that you can pick up once you join.

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya Lara

Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!

Craving Coachella

Craving Coachella

All weekend I saw people posting photos of their trips to Coachella music festival – you know, dressing up all crazy cool and dancing in the dust, with flowers in your hair.  I’m still stuck in the land of ice storms and shivers so I hopped inworld and found myself a cactus to pose beside!  I’m enjoying the rays of the sun on my way to see Beyoncé while sipping on some agave lemonade (I dunno, sounds like a thing to do in the desert!).  But the best part is – my outfit is completely free!

Dress me Up

I absolutely love this light and airy dress by Sophisticate that I found for free at the Garden of Shadows event.  There are several moderately priced gifts hanging around (mostly around 10L), but this one is completely free!  I love the mint green colour and the little heart cutouts.  Perfect for a day in the sun.  (I hope I don’t get weird tan lines…).  You can get it too by heading to the Garden of Shadows and seeking out the Sophisticate booth.  You’ll be happy you did!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

More Hair!

Another event going down right now is Gachaland!  There are loads of  free gifts to be had there, but today I’m going to just tease a bit and show you the hair I found by Ayashi.  They’re always generous and have some great hairstyles out at events for free. Today’s side braid will keep me cool in the warm weather, as well as keeping me cool in the “Oh, Aline you’re so cool” kind of way since it’s pink! There are several pastel hues in the HUD with this hairdo.  Oh and yup – it’s free!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group and pick it up!

Who run the world?  Moi!

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails

And when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails ~Elizabeth Edwards

 Sometimes in life and SLife you just have to force yourself to give up on what’s not working and move towards a different goal.  It can be a a life changing decision or it can be something as small as knowing when to give up on a photography location that isn’t working. I must have stood in the same spot, switching angles, and lighting and poses for what seemed like an eternity yesterday even though I loved the sim I was on – when finally after trying and trying, I had to force myself to move to a different sim.  All I needed to do was adjust my sails to the Yasmina sim, and it felt like it all came together.  I think it was probably just one of those days, but I sure wish I wasn’t so stubborn to try something different earlier!

Love, stop babbling and get to the free stuff
