Casual Decorating Furniture final

Guess who’s back. Back again.

Hey, wonderful readers! I’ve been gone for a while thanks to being busy and sick in real life (yuck). Now that I’m feeling better, though, I can’t wait to show you some of the fabulous deals I’ve dug up. There are a lot of events this December (advents and hunts and gacha fairs oh my!) but I’d like to take a moment to highlight two FabFree Group Gifts today. As always the listing can be found {HERE} and to join this free group simply copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Second Life viewer, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  and click the link when it appears in local chat.

If you’re wondering, yes that is my fireplace.

We’ve been spoiled for choice when it comes to clothing items but did you know that there are some top notch furniture designers offering quality gifts for FabFree group members too? It’s most certainly a boon for those, like me, who love to play around with the look of their apartment and these gifts above have certainly added a bit more festive cheer to my Second Life. First up is the newest FabFree group gift from Lil Tease Creations.  I’ve always loved decorations that come with a little bit of a twist and since I can’t seem to let go of Halloween just yet these Christmas Stockings from Lil Tease Creations with its spoopy (thanks for teaching me this word Love!) and cute designs on the front were simply perfect for my fireplace. In the pack, you’ll get seven (spider design not shown) mesh socks that are one land impact each. The permissions are set to copy so you can duplicate as many as you want of these darling little socks for your residence. After you’ve grabbed your gift, take a look around Lil Tease Creations, I slapped two, no group needed, Midnight Mania boards while I was there.

Next up is the Sugar Candy Wreath by [CIRCA] Living. I’ve been eyeing this gift for a while but since my apartment has no doors there was really nowhere to put it when Halloween rolled around. It was just lucky then that the wreath with its adorable cartoon designs went beautifully with the Christmas Stockings. I enjoy the seasonal orange of the wreath too as it was a good call back to, my favorite season, Autumn. The Sugar Candy Wreath stands at five land impact and permissions are set to copy as well so you can duplicate as many of these beautiful wreaths as you want! Both of these gifts are free so wear your FabFree tag proudly, snap up these gifts and get to decorating!

If that decorating bug has bit you hard…

Here are some more blog posts on other furniture items that are available for free with your FabFree group tag:

Casual Decorating Final

What to wear while decorating.

Seeing as I’ve been in a bit of a knitwear kick recently, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m bringing the Gaa Dress by !cream Spaghetti Hair (gosh what an awesome store name) to your attention today. Not only does this quaint little store have no group required Lucky Boards for you to stalk, it also has a wide range of cheapies in store for visitors. This pretty, sleeveless number costs only 5L and is a steal as you will be getting the dress in not one but two (blue and pink) different colors. What’s more, both versions of the dress is available in one standard mesh size as well as sizes for Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and Maitreya. There is also a good alpha layer included in the package so if you’re still using the standard mesh size that will certainly help with the fitting.

For this picture I’ve paired the Gaa Dress with another great deal from !cream Spaghetti Hair, which is the Love Pink Tights that you can purchase for 15L. These tights come in pants, socks and tattoo layer for those of us using classic avatar bodies as well as Huds for owners of Maitreya or Slink mesh bodies. There are five different designs to choose from in the pack and I went with this playfully pink and blue diamond design which kinda reminds me of fun carnivals. Hmm…maybe it’s not too late to do that snowed in version of Harley Quinn I had in mind…

Have you been stalking the advents?

I have and to make your job easier, FabFree has an advent listing for you {HERE}. One of the advent boards that I’ve been stalking is the one at Alli&Ali Designs and Day 4 yielded the Carrie hairstyle in Cinnamon. It’s always great finding new stores and I’m really glad to have discovered this hairstore during my first ever Advent run in Second Life. As I understand it, the Advent Board gives out individual presents so there might still be a chance for you to receive the Carrie hair during this advent season. If not the Alli&Ali Designs advent is totally free and there’s still plenty of chances for you to pick up some new hairstyle to suit your taste and style!

Casual Decorating Headshot final

Speaking of Advents

One of the ones I’m waiting for with baited breath is the 12 Days of Christmas Advent that’s starting at AlterEgo on the 14th of this month. This advent is open to group members so I highly recommend joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group now while it’s free as a membership fee will be in effect after the 13th. When you’re in the group and waiting for the advent to start, go ahead and grab Victoria, the new AlterEgo group gift. This gorgeous skin comes in two tones (rose and sunkissed) and you’ll be getting three classic skin with eyebrows/no eyebrows options, five brow shapes, eyelash alpha, physics and two shapes. There is also an applier hud included that works for Soul Uni, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and Omega mesh bodies and parts. AlterEgo is fast becoming one of my favorite skin places because of it’s well-defined skin and unique faces as well as it’s frequent and generous group gifts. Oh, and if you know someone who’s under 30 Days old in Second Life, bring them over to AlterEgo as there are gifts specifically aimed for newbies too!

And that’s a wrap for today! Happy decorating and adventing!

That about wraps it up for this post, but before I go, let me tell you about two more great stops that guys should make in their ongoing search for men’s hair. One fine resource for men’s hairstyles is Alli & Ali. They have free group gifts and frequently take part in gridwide hunts. If you are looking for free hair, they are definitely worth a visit. Lastly, while they are not offering any free male hair, Truth is an excellent hair store and, as of this writing, their male hair is only 50L. For that price, they are a bargain. That’s all for me, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

I Love Lemongrass!

When I hear the word lemongrass I think of delicious Thai food. The gorgeous gown from Snowpaws is truly delicious. The details such as the textures, skirt, and gold chains/buttons are amazing. I was anxious to share this beautiful gown with you. The fact that I won this dress free in a Midnight Mania Board is even more fab!

I decided to complement the look with my favorite hair style from Alli&Ali Designs. The style is called Sonja and the color is cinnamon. I’m so excited that I now have it in 2 colors. It also cost me nothing more than a tap on a Midnight Mania Board aka free.

Snowpaws Mei LemonGrass Gown 7-2-14_001

Below is a closeup of the hair (mentioned above) and jewelry I paired with this outfit. These earrings are are from Two Sisters Treasures and cost only $10L. TST has a large selection of items on sale for this price every month in addition to their other sensational jewelry creations. The bracelets were made by .aisling. and have been in my possession for a very long time. (Hey I’m old in SL!)

Close up Snowpaws Mei LemonGrass Gown 7-2-14_001

I showed these classic patent peeps in my last post but wanted to show them off again. partly because I love them; they are truly classic and can be paired with any number of dresses, gowns, or outfits. I also wanted to show them again to correct an error I made about the price. The price for the black patent peeps are $79L. If you would like to get the color change hud the cost is now $499. You can get them at Lindy Modern Retro & Modern Shoes. Psst – Lindy is also having a yard sale with shoes for SLink feet at the same location.
