Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.

My head skin is Drake by Stray Dog in tone 04. The sweet lined cut bread is from OKARA. The trending porn stache Mustache is from none other than Mister Razzor. This cool oval shades are made by Decision and come with a colour changing HUD for all the parts. This nautical type necklace, well choker comes by way of Lapointe & Bastchild it’s unisex. Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.

I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).

Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold!

Living in an Igloo

The Menstuff Hunt is coming to an end.

I didn’t want to get left out in the cold when it came to getting in on the goods with the Menstuff Hunt… after all, the hunt ends November 30th, but somehow I ended up sitting on ice in a simful of penguins. I blame Astrid’s sense of direction. At least the penguins are friendly and the view of the Northern Lights is spectacular. Come to think of it… I don’t have that much to complain about after all. The trip up here was actually worth it. The sim is called Lovea and this little icy haven is outside of a small art studio. It’s well worth visiting to snap a few photos.

I needed igloo appropriate clothes.

I figure this red vest is igloo appropriate right? It’s also a FREE Menstuff Hunt gift from Birth and includes three different undershirt options. The shirt and vest are mesh and come separate so you can pick which shirt you will pair with the red vest. You get three choices of shirt: black, grey (pictured), and white. It comes in all the standard sizes and has its own alpha layer.

It’ll put hair on ya.

I remember various relatives telling me when I was growing up that different foods or activities would “put hair on my chest.” Thankfully it doesn’t work that way… but finding the iconic blue Menstuff Hunt shirt at Nivaro will put hair on your face!

Find the FREE gift there and you’ll be getting a fatpack of their Natural and Eldorado beards.

The package includes system layers of:

  • The El Dorado  in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable
  • The Natural (shown) in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable

I think I’ll try to find a warmer locale for my next traveling venture… but we’ll see what Astrid has in mind. Till then, I have reading to do. Have a great afternoon!

No Harm Done

No Harm Done

I decided to go shirtless for a cause today… to show off some excellent group gifts. If you’re a fan of high quality tattoos in Second Life, you know that finding good ink with all the proper layers at a reasonable cost can sometimes be a challenge. I ran into a new-to-me store that is offering group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

If you stop by Suicide Gurls main-store, you can join the group for 150L. This will give you access to a total of five group gifts, as the monthly group gifts for January through May are all set out for customers to enjoy. Each of these tattoos are unisex and come in a full range of appliers, including Omega, Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as a system layer for system avatars. So your one time fee for the group join pays for itself easily right away. I’m showing you the April gift called “Dagni” in the photo above. The gifts vary widely each month in style… but one thing doesn’t vary… quality. They are all top quality tattoos.

To add to my rugged look, I picked up the FREE L’Homme Magazine Group Gift being offered by No.Match at their mainstore. This group is FREE to join and means you’ll have access to numerous FREE gifts for men at a variety of stores all over the grid. No.Match is generously offering this chin goatie called “No Harm”. I thought it fit the feel of today’s look.
