Looking Back…

It seems I have been thinking a lot about the past lately. Some good times, some bad, some too crazy to believe it really happened. And yes, I can remember when gas pumps were painted that ugly red rust color and when gas was 44 cents a gallon. And I do remember the summer of sixty- nine, just barely. Even though I’m looking back, I still plan on moving forward and making new memories, hopefully none as bizarre as a few I’ve had lately…

But if I’d only known…

Today I have a few gifts  that will cost you nothing to pick up. By joining the FREE group at Fe Style, you can get thKing 2e King69 White T-Shirt for FREE. The shirt comes in S-L and a also fitted size. This month’s FREE group gift at Prey is the Men’s Denim Shorts. These shorts come in classic sizes XS-XL.  The Prey group is also FREE to join. I’m also wearing the Black Mesh Sports Cap from Adriatic Line that I previously mentioned [HERE] and my go to TopGun Retro Glasses, a group gift at A&D Clothing. Today I am also wearing a a FREE gift, no group needed, from Chop ZueyThe 4 Star Generals Mens Bracelet in Platinum can be picked up in the middle of the store. (Don’t be confused with the group gift version that also contains a gold bracelet. ) The bracelet comes in two versions, the all platinum and the gold star platinum style. You can click on the photo to get a better look.

 

Until my next sporadic post…

The Amazing Spider-Carson

The Amazing Spider-Carson

Webslingin’ for fun….

The other day, I was bored and as a goof I thought I’d play superhero. Instead of finding a traditional Spider-Man costume, I thought I could find something close enough for my needs out of my own wardrobe. I put on the Taylor Shirt from A&D Clothing (not free) and changed the textures in the fatpack to the red and blue shown. I also put on a pair of A&D Clothing Patrick Pants (again, not free) since I was already in that folder and knew there would be no bleed through. I had recently won a FREE pair of Deadpool Timber Boots from the Midnight Mania Board at DS Mens Wear. (Items do rotate on this board, just so you’re aware) I also found in my inventory the Spider Necklace, a FREE Le Homme group gift at Real Evil Industries. And there you have it, I spent part of my day playing your friendly neighborhood Spider-Carson. I took this photo as a memento of my play day, but it ended up deserving a post of it’s very own.

Gone Surfin’

Gone Surfing

A picture is worth a 144 characters…

She texts me, telling me about her horrible experience with her online booking for her spa weekend. She asks me where I am, as she’s home and I’m nowhere to be found. Instead of taking the time to type out what I am doing, I just thought that a picture would convey the answer to her question just as easy… Yeah, I know I’m in for it when I get home… /me sighs

Too cute for my own good….

I wanted to let you know about a hunt that is happening on the Marketplace called the Too Cute Marketplace Hunt. Each store that is participating has two gifts somewhere in their marketplace store that just costs 5L. The gifts will be denoted with two adorable kittens, letting you know that you’ve discovered the prize. I found the G-litter-othic Mesh T-Shirt at :.C!L.: for just 5L. The shirt comes in fitted mesh for the Signature, Sling and TMP body styles. The Too Cute Marketplace Hunt runs through June 5th.  I paired it with the Robin Male Shorts, a FREE group gift by Lavarock Creations I previously showed [HERE]. I’m also wearing the TopGun Retro Glasses, a FREE group gift at A&D Clothing.

This Little Piggy didn’t go to market…

My pose today is called Selfie Boy, a FREE group gift from Little Piggy. The phone comes with the pose in five colors. There are several FREE poses available to group members and joining the group is FREE. TIP: Take the elevator down one level from the landing point to get to Little Piggy.

Now this little piggy better get home before he risks getting into more trouble than he already is…

 Not Just for the Birds

Not Just for the Birds

 

The Pen is Mightier than the Beak….

With my coffee in one hand and my notepad in the other, I decided to head out to the yard to make notes for my next post. My goal is write a post about the other group gift at Angel DELUXE that I didn’t mention in my surfing post [HERE]. As I’m scribbling notes … comes in classic avatar sizes XS-XL… comfy look and feel…. FREE to members but the group has a 10L joining fee… blah blah…. an owl swoops down and takes my pen from my hand and perches on the garden wall… FINE! You write my next post….

Please allow me to introduce myself….

I’m Owlson.  Carson has so graciously allowed me to finish his post today. (I personally think he has writer’s block) I’ve just flown in from the Tres Chic Event event that I read about from Serena [HERE] and [HERE] and Love [HERE]. While I was circling the event, I was asking HOOever was around if there were gifts that were not geared strictly for the hens. I was fortunate enough to find a flock that was looking for the same things I was.  We soared from booth to booth finding great  nest home and garden items. I’ll list them below to save you from me trying to imitate Caiben’s droll sense of humor….

  • CHEZ MOI – Teal Wooden Bench
  • [Merak] – Cup and Notebook
  • Serenity Style- Rusty Birdhouse
  • Fashiowl Poses – Happy Birthday Gift w/ Owl Pose

If you noticed, you can even get a lifelike version of me in a perched  pose position from Fashiowl. All you need to do to get these great gifts is join the Tres Chic group for FREE and wear the group tag while picking up gifts at the Tres Chic Event.
This blogging gig is easy. I wonder if they have an opening for an owl who looks better in glasses than Caiben does?

EDIT: The gift from Fashiowl is IN the owl which is an owl balloon… I still like the owl….

8 bit heaven…

Yeah, I admit I spent way too much time and money standing in in front of machines just like this. If I had all the dollar bills back that I fed into that brown coin changer behind me, I could probably take a nice vacation somewhere.

Free  Replay…

I’ve been stalking frequenting the Midnight Mania Board at REBELLION and have come away with some nice gifts. Both the Denim Assault Hoodie and “Infliction” Cap were both prizes on the board. The board rotates daily with a prize for either men or women. Stop on by and give the board a tap.

Hey, does anyone have a dollar I can borrow?

Miami Vice

Miami Vice

 

Nostalgia – 80’s Style…

It’s been a thing lately. I’ve been yearning all things circa 1980’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’m at that point in my life I’m starting to miss all the things that influenced the person I became. I have been rediscovering the movies, the music and the TV shows. I caught an episode of Miami Vice and remembered the fashion trend that the show started. The sports jackets over pastel t shirts. Neon and pastel colors, deck shoes were all trendy fashion back in the day.

When Neons and Pastels were the craze…

My look today mimics the style that Don Johnson (Dakota Johnson’s dad, for you youngsters) made famous. I found the Daniel Blazier, a new release at A&D Clothing (not free) for that jacket over t-shirt look. I then turned to the Marketplace and browsed the Pepper store for other pieces for my outfit. The Chino Trousers in light plum (10L) and the all white Slip on Sneakers (2L) makes my 1980’s Miami look complete.

The Buried Man

Buried Man

It’s the end of the world as we know it…

But why sweat the small stuff. I’ve got a shack to live in, a fire to keep me warm, and a large broken statue that creeps me out at night. Who could ask for more? I was lucky enough to win this outfit at the Lucky Board at Angel DELUXE (before the world went to hell in a hand basket). The Desert Outfit can be won if your lucky letter come up. You do need to be a Angel DELUXE group member to click the board, but the join fee is just 10L. I’m also wearing the Shearling Boots,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel and the TopGun Retro Glasses, also a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. I had a lot of fun exploring The Buried Man Sim. Check it out!

Simply Amazing

Amazing

Oh, what a feeling…

In just a few short days I will have the next 2 months and change to myself, answering to nobody and only having to cater to her needs… (uhh …I meant my dog, not sure who you were thinking I was talking about.) The pressure of the past month are slowly slipping into just a memory and I have nothing but sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. And you can also look amazing in the group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This month’s gift is a green striped Men’s Shirt. This shirt comes in the stadard XS-XL sizes plus fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

I paired the shirt with  new items from A&D Clothing. The Patrick Pants and the Nautics Shoes can be purchased individually or in fatpacks. I always choose the fatpacks because like Pokemon, I got to catch them all. Y’all have an amazing day!

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

 

Blowin’ in the wind….

There is nothing more refreshing than an unexpected breeze to start blowing. I love the feeling of the air rushing past my body. Even my dog loves it enough to point her nose in the direction of the gust and lets the wind blow her ears back…

Not always equal….

I found a couple more L’Homme gifts for today’s look.  You can pick up the Asymmetric Jacket, The FREE L’Homme gift, at Gabriel. Another L’Homme gift can be picked up at GizzA Creations . The FREE Boots are next to the Oversized Sweater that I posted [HERE]. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Chess Jeans is another FREE group gift in the building of freebies at Egoisme that I talked about [HERE]

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…
