Red Rain

Red Rain

~ I am standing up at the water’s edge in my dream
   I cannot make a single sound as you scream
   It can’t be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
   Hey, we touch
   This place is so quiet, sensing that storm
 
   Red rain is coming down
                                                            ~ “Red Rain”  Peter Gabriel

Good evening, Fab Readers. I’m not going to chatter on too much this evening about this gift. I am grateful that Red Angel has given us a remembrance of a terrible day in American history. We need to remember and honor the people who were the victims of madness and the heroes who gave their lives trying to save them. What more is there to say.

All my todays

All my todays

Welcome to the week, Fab Readers! Isn’t it wild how time seems to be getting faster and faster as we head towards the holidays and the end of the year? It’s full on Fall now! And in honor of that, Gabe and I went for a nice stroll out in town to breathe it all in! The crisp air, the falling leaves… The cup full of hot chocolate… oh yes!  I even found us the perfect casual outfits to enjoy our walk. Both of our full outfits come from Tastic and they each only cost one little Linden.

My top and cozy sweater are the “Willow” set. You get the jeans and the top inside a little mushroom prize box. It’ll take a few minutes of hunting but you’ll find it. I am in love with the rich Autumn colors in both the top and the jeans.

Gabe’s full outfit is called “Hunter” appropriately enough. You lucky guys get the whole outfit – Hoodie, jeans and sneakers! Each piece is really well built. I especially like the sneakers! The look is so realistic.  Just be sure to wear a shirt under it… so you can hand it off to your girl when she gets cold. 😉

The Harmony Hunt only runs until Sept. 30th so get out there and get your Hunt on!

Fall Blue

Fall Blues

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. We are getting to the time of year when warm is becoming as important as stylish. The days grow cooler and I fore see sweaters and fleece in my future. Happily, Mystrie has that in mind for todays outfit.

This is the “Autumn Walks” outfit and you can pick it up for just 1L and a little hunting at the main store. The hunt prize for the Changing of Colors Hunt comes with the blue fleece look top, a pair of pants with a fall print and the ‘blue suede shoes’. I chose to throw on a pair of well-worn jeans for my walk today proving that the outfit is rather versatile. As I often have to chase after Dixie when she takes off after a squirrel, I thought jeans were appropriate.

The Changing of Colors Hunt runs until Sept. 30th so don’t tarry too long.

In the Twisted Shadows

In the Twisted Shadows

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. You may have heard Juli is feeling a bit under the weather so I have ever so graciously stepped in to post for us both today. because how could I not when we both look so “Twistedly” good?

Both Juli and I have been fighting our way through the Twisted Hunt this past week. For all the frustration, there are some truly excellent prizes for this round. Such as the full suit I am sporting today. This is the “Shadow Seeker” ensemble from Roped Passions. I had first thought the purple was too lavender but it is a good classic purple and the subtle pinstriping in the black fabric makes it just that more handsome. The suit is one piece but it does not include shoes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Julianna’s sleek gown is also from Roped Passions and is the ladies gift for the Twisted Hunt. (Each prize is separately boxed.) The “Shadow Seductress” gown is the same classic purple and black and has subtle silver lightning tracks across the bodice and skirt. Both of these outfits are wonderfully crafted and the details stand out. Roped Passions has an excellent selection of men’s and women’s items so be sure to take a look around while you Hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so time is catching up with us.

Don’t delay to cross “Beyond The Veil” soon.

Game Day

Game Day

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. As you read in Juli’s last post, she sent me over to the TWE12VE Event to pick up the free men’s gifts there. When I found these lounge pants and tee shirt from LooLoo & Platypus I knew they’d be perfect for relaxing around the house with a game. I have to admit… I’m a gamer. There’s little I enjoy more than an afternoon spend in Skyrim or the Fall Out wastelands. And these pajamas even come with a pack of “Gamer’s Clutter”. Then I saw that there was a matching set of ladies PJs and I had a feeling Juli was thinking the same thing I was: Game Day!! Time to show who’s the boss around here. 😉

Juli’s note: Oh, it’s on, Gamer Boi!

Good evening, Fab Readers. I hope all of you are having a wonderful beginning of September. Personally, I am looking forward to the coming Fall season and all it brings. September also brings a close to the Men only Hunt, I hope you found all the birds and their gifts. I’m still opening gifts and may well be doing so for quite a while. But we can’t forget that the latest round of gifts for the readers of the L’Homme magazine are still out and available. And, of course, a new month brings new Group gifts.

I stopped by Etham to pick up the latest gift just today. This comfortable sweat shirt fills the bill for these cooling days and nights. The “Matt Sweatshirt” also come with a HUD to choose one of twelve solid colors. It’s a welcome basic addition to any gentleman’s closet.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink Male
  • TMP

Turning to the L’Homme gifts from the bottom up. My striking new pants are from Bakaboo. This designer never fails to give really amazing gifts with real flair! The “Dual” pants are no exception. The HUD gives you five half-and-half designs, each one is eye popping amazing.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

The chain necklace is also a L’Homme offering. The “Tyler Chain” from Opopop has just a little extra style than the basic men’s chain. But not so over the top to look odd with more casual outfits.

Lastly, I have a new set of stylish glasses. The “Slimglass Glasses” are from Since 1975 and are the L’Homme gift as well. They are both copy and modify so you can adjust them to your shape easily. The HUD comes with five choses of either wildly colored hardware and lenses or the more sedate simple black pair I’m wearing.

All of the L’Homme gifts are scheduled to remain on the floor until October so you do have plenty of time to collect them. You won’t be sorry you did.

On the Hunt

On the Hunt

Good evening, FabFree Readers. This is a good tie to be a ‘Man about The Grid’. There are plenty of hunts, Gachas and events going on right now to make one feel almost spoiled by choice.  In fact, the Men Only Hunt is so large this round that I’m still unpacking all of the gifts! While there are still quite a few items I personally don’t… appreciate… (Juli insists I be nice) I cast no judgment on the tastes of others. As Juli says, “You do you, boo.” Which is an eccentric way of saying this hunt has something for everyone. That said, my complete outfit including the new hair style is all 100% free and up for grabs on The Men Only Hunt.

First is the “Reed” cardigan and shirt set from Ascend. The thick comfortable sweater comes in the shown shades of blue but a HUD will give you six colors of shirts and ties to choose from. The shirt and tie themselves can be turned off if you prefer to wear just the cardigan. They, however are not wearable by themselves. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy – Athletic, Legacy
  • Siganature – Gianni

The jeans are from Cheerno and are also a hunt gift. The ‘S21 Jeans’ are waiting for you to find. They are well made and are a solid addition to my wardrobe. 

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic – Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legancy
  • Signature Gianni

Last but not least is my new hair style from Volt Hair. This is a New-to-Me designer that I am happy to have ‘discovered’. Volt does both men’s and ladies hair and has an extensive collection of both. I found the hair to be very well designed and easy to wear. The hair is unrigged and comes with a resizer. Plus, you will receive the entire fatpack in this prize.

A quick note on the Hunt. While you are not required to get the HUD with all of the SLurls loaded, I did find it makes the hunt much easier. There isn’t a page with the hints or the SLurls available online. You will need to join the Hunt’s group but that is free as well.  The pick up for the HUD is here.

Wasted beats

Wasted beats

Lions sit in solemn lines
Drinking gin and dropping lines

Wasting beats in this heart of mine
Until the morning comes around

~ “Sinners” by Barns Courtney

Good afternoon, FabFree readers. Today I am happy to wish the amazing L’Homme eMagazine a very happy 7th anniversary. If you haven’t become aware of this publication, I urge you to discover it. The photography is beyond compare and always inspires. If you want to keep up with the cutting edge men’s designers… this is the place for you.

Each issue includes new completely free gifts for the members of the free readers group. In fact, over the next few days, I will be showing a few of the best gifts here on our blog. The first and certainly one of the best gifts available is the “Theo Suit” from AsteroidBox. I can’t thank this designer enough for the spectacular gift. The suit is marvelously styled with a modern edge. The faint print of the skeleton bones on the fabric gives it an almost menacing look while being so sleek. Yes, I guess you can say I like this suit!

To join the L’Homme group simply click the sign above any of the gifts and join up for free. Then help yourself to an array of gifts fit for the discerning gentleman.

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. 

I don’t think Dixie is taking this seriously. She just looks at me with those big puppy dog eyes and I can’t be mad at her. But if Juli finds one more pair of shoes chewed to pieces….  we’ll both be in the dog house. Maybe I should buy her some flowers.  Juli… not Dixie. I’m pretty sure Dixie would just chew those up too.
