Crusin’ the Strip

Crusin' the Strip

Driving the loop….

Back in the day, when malls were a thing and we all wanted out lives to be straight out of 16 Candles or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, my weekends were spent cruising up and down the strip, honking and waving at the same cars over and over. We’d occasionally pull over at one of our turn around points, the McDonalds at either end of town and show off our rides and wave and catcall at the pretty girls that would drive past. Oh, to be that age again….

A Leaning Look…

My outfit today does take me back a bit to yesteryear. The Kase Men’s Jeans, a FREE group gift at [ASHBURY] lends itself to the day when patches over your ripped jeans were the thing and not just more rips. The Ashbury group is FREE to join. {Get Frocked} also has a FREE gift for it’s members. The collared Purple Shirt projects that you care about your appearance while trying to attract the birds that fly by (often way too quickly). The Get Frocked group is also FREE to join. My last gift is totally FREE with no group to join. You can find the Lee Boots on the display floor (away from the group gifts) at BYRNE as a FREE gift to all.

Hey, looks like that car is coming by for a second look….   /me runs his fingers through his hair and stands real cool…

Outbreak

Nothing but steam…

Ok, not the ideal place for my radiator to spring a leak, but I’m have to make due.  I saw a house a mile or so back. I could go there and ask for help, but it did look old and abandoned. maybe I should walk up ahead and made find some help.

Maybe I should have stayed with the car. The farther I walk the foggier it gets. Today I’m wearing the Wyatt Open Shirt a FREE group gift at Ashbury. The group is also FREE to join. I’m still wearing the Brooklyn Pants (with a different texture) from TentatioN  I modeled yesterday [HERE] along with the Barcelona Shoes by A&D Clothing.

The fog is starting to thin a bit. I think I see someone up ahead. They seem to be wearing a fedora and a striped sweater. I made it to my destination, this has to be Elm Street!

March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by: Riot Bayn – featuring Ashbury

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” – John Lennon

For many of us, Second Life is where our imaginations go to play and explore. The title of this post, a quote by my favorite Beatle, John Lennon, says a lot about life. It explains a lot about our second lives as well. We explore, we learn, we develop as avatars and (despite what some people believe) we do so as people at the same time. Our imaginations can develop when our real life limitations disappear. Indulging in these opportunities for play can help us become better and more rounded people. This is what I wish for all of us in 2015: A year of imaginations on the rampage and peace and joy spreading across the grid, trickling into all of our other lives. I was thrilled to see a FREE group gift from ASHBURY recently, one that is perfect for my first post of 2015. It’s the Dean Leather Jacket & Shirt, a MESH one piece combo that includes a FITMESH version as well! The jacket has a great leather texture, detailed stitching, and features striking metallic accents in the zippers and buttons. The shirt portion is a white Beatles tee, which will make a lot of people smile when they see it. Musical tastes vary, but The Beatles’ importance in music is impossible to deny. Together, it’s a timeless leather jacket with realistic detailing and an iconic shirt that many people will love. That is one heck of a great FREE group gift, and exactly how I want my blogging year to begin. I want to thank all of you for helping me grow this blog and allowing it to become a source of pride for me and the others who contribute to its success. In March, it will celebrate it’s first birthday, something I look forward to greatly. There is a Lennon anecdote, familiar to many, which I will repeat due to its great personal significance for me. “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Lucrecia Loves Cupcakes

Hello readers! There are three days left until the FabFree Birthday Cupcake Hunt ends on the 16th September, so if you haven’t been to hunt down those yummy little treats, then now is the time! There are 50 cupcakes hidden around the FabFree HQ, inside and outside, high and low for you to find with some amazing gifts from our very generous designers!

You can see previews of the gifts on this page here which also has links to posts written by each of us that have already featured some of them!

Today I am showing you three more of the gifts! First the really cute Cupcake Coat by Ashbury which also comes with a gift for the guys inside! I really love the cupcake print on this coat, it is so much fun to wear and who doesn’t love a cosy faux fur collar!

Untitled

The next gift is the So Fabulous Dress by MASH Fashion which is really striking in its green print and I think that it is just perfect to add a little splash of colour toAutumn as you can see!

Untitled

The last gift I am showing is the Elenora Mesh Minidress by Kamiri with its girly ruffles skirt is just so cute. The dark swirled print gives it a slightly more grown up feel and I feel like I am ready to dance the night away in this!

The shoes I am wearing in the post are all from the Lucrecia Pumps Classic Pack for SLink High Feet by Ricielli that are available at the new round of The Dressing Room Fusion that began yesterday. This is such an amazing bargain as there are four different colours of shoes in this pack for only L$65! There is a second pack of colours also available for the same price.

My hair is also available at The Dressing Room Fusion. This style is called Tarasun and is by LoQ’ue who were formerly called LoQ Hair. This is a full fatpack of colours for an amazing price of L$70!
