It’s a Good Month.

Purple_001

It’s a good month…

April is a good month for men. You know why? We have the “For Him Hunt” just for us. I’ve already made a couple of stops and I have to say I’m pleased with the results of my findings. It’s like hunting down golden Easter eggs all April long… except the icon is a manly wrench. You can never have too many tools, I don’t care if you’re a guy or a gal.

I decided to show off this great shirt I picked up at Horr Menswear first, since the deep rich purple color and the fit are just superb. It’s a great casual shirt and goes great with a pair of jeans. It also comes in a large number of mesh body sizes to fit just about any of the mesh bodies out there. For just 1L this shirt is a steal of a deal. Hunt it down before April 21st when this hunt ends.

Shirt Mesh Sizes Available:

  • Classic XS – XL + Alpha
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

A Hunting We Will Go

A Hunting We Will Go

When Easter falls early in the year, I get a bit let down to tell you the truth.  In my part of the world, it’s still all grey and slushy and I’m surrounded by general grossness.  When you think of Easter, you think of blossoms dripping from the trees, and being able to go out without a toque and mukluks (ha!).  However, I’m in chillsville.  In SL, however, I’ve come over all rosy and have found a cute little sweater and knickers combo that is great for lounging about while waiting for the Easter bunny to visit!

Hunting Basket Goodies

In my travels through the grid, I came across a mini hunt that’s taking place at Tatiko.  There are five eggs to find, each one containing a pretty little gift.  Search high and low, and pay 1L for each item.  I decided to pair this bunny adorned sweater with the lingerie I also hunted down for 1L at Tatiko.  What will you find there?

Sizes

  • Curvy (Top Only)
  • Fine (Top Only)
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (Knickers Only)

Oeuf Course!

Pardon my horrible French pun above (I can’t stop myself sometimes), but I have found lovely little eggy earrings to go with my Easter look.  I picked these up the other day while at Sorbet, and I must say they please me no end.  You can pick them up too by joining the group for 25L.  There are several other gifts available, including the dress I posted the other day.

Hoppy Easter, my friends!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Peace, Love & Camping

Peace, Love & Camping

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I just have to say that Second Life camping is so much more comfortable than Real Life camping. When I arrived to my site today, it was all set up.  My bed was made, the campfire was lit – even my camera was set out and ready to shoot some wildlife photos.  I swear sometimes camping in Real Life is simply setting up half the weekend and then dismantling it all for the rest of the weekend.  Next time, I think I’ll try my RL luck at The Holiday Inn, so I can log in here and get a comfortable camping fix.

Need a free spirited adventure of your own?

Getting dressed for one, is the first step!  You’ll need to take a trip to HashTag to pick up these Ripped Capri Dungarees (fitted for Maitreya Mesh Bodies) as a free group gift (free group join too!), and then head over to Loordes of London and hunt down a black rose hunt icon for the Glam or Grunge Hunt.  Once you find it – pay 1L and you’ll have the Right To Be Free top and vest combo.  It’s not super easy to see in my photo as my pose is a little hunched over, but the vest is decorated with all kinds of cool wild child things like buttons,etc.  This hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included:

  • 5 Standard Sizes + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

Taking time for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n.

Poolside_001

All this hunting for treasure has me WORN OUT! So I decided to head to a resort for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n. I noticed I wasn’t the only one who thinks hunts are both great and evil at the same time. Aline was mentioning it in her post where she sported some great Finders Keepers hunt gifts. For me, the worst part is all those boxes scattered all over the floor of my Second Life house as I try to unpack everything. Wowzer! At least I unpacked a couple of resort worthy items sure to make relaxing at the poolside worth hunting down my freebies!

A new shirt.

Hey don’t worry if pink’s not your style! This shirt from Get Jiggy! has you covered with an amazing color hud.

You’ll get:

  • 13 colors to choose from for the outside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the inside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the cuffs

and you can change those separately. The shirt only comes in standard sizes, but I had no problem fitting it to my Jake body by using the alphas. I also tried it on my Slink body and it fit that body just fine too! This Vintage Polo shirt is a free group gift with your free to join group at Get Jiggy!

New Pants too!

While you’re at Get Jiggy! be sure to hunt down the Glam or Grunge hunt gift. It will only cost you 1L, and you’ll be getting a great pair of cargo capris. Just like the shirt, these pants come with an outstanding selection of color with the color change hud.

  • 5 colors for the pants
  • 5 colors for the front pockets
  • 5 colors for the side pockets
  • 5 colors for the back pockets
  • 6 colors for the belt
  • 5 metal choices

On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Boys (Don’t) Cry

Boys Dont Cry_001

I was hot on the trail taking my sweet time on the Glam or Grunge hunt and really getting into it because I’m super hyped lazy when I found the perfect gift to blog! It was fabulous! Fantastic! It was the gift from Horr Mens Wear! Then I realized that a certain Stan the man and his pupster had beat me to the punch.

Not Shedding Tears, Not Me

Now don’t get me wrong. I was totally happy for him, except the part where he looked better in it than I did forgot to wear a shirt. I think a shirt would have much improved his look. But don’t worry because boys don’t cry. It says so on my shirt. It’s just something in my eye. At least I beat you to this one Stan!

That’s right readers. You can get my shirt at Waffles as part of the Glam or Grunge hunt for just one million dollars one little linden. It’s well worth that and a few tears as you hunt for it. It even comes in a few sizes to make it worth your while.

Sizes Available:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic XS – XL

Yes Please, All Them All

Yes Please! All Them All!

Hello Fabulouses!  I just can’t quite make up my mind which sweet to choose, but this is Second Life and our clothes always seem to fit no matter what these days, so I’m just going to have ALL THEM ALL!  This little cafe with all the treats is right beside the FabFree Info Hub on The Wash Sim, and you are welcome to hang out there any old time you like.

I’ll tell you where!  At Petite Mort, you can find this darling Lavender Serene Lace Dress as a free lucky board prize.  You are required to join the Petite Mort inworld group to participate, however the group is still free to join.  The free group join may change in the future, as I remember there used to be a fee before the move, so make sure you join and stay in it just in case!

It is a little hard to see the arms, as I have added a sweater from my inventory by COCO, however it is sleeveless making this a great dress for the upcoming spring weather! (I hope it’s upcoming…  I see I am under another severe weather advisory for this afternoon again -.-).
