Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs
Skin – Essences  – Amber
Bikini – .:: KENODOXY ::. – Bea deux-pieces – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Tattoos – Nar Mattaru <Nar> Legend Tattoos
Shoes – [VO.Z] Rose Heels – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Body/Hands/Feet – Maitreya Mesh Body – Lara

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

It’s a Good Month.

Purple_001

It’s a good month…

April is a good month for men. You know why? We have the “For Him Hunt” just for us. I’ve already made a couple of stops and I have to say I’m pleased with the results of my findings. It’s like hunting down golden Easter eggs all April long… except the icon is a manly wrench. You can never have too many tools, I don’t care if you’re a guy or a gal.

I decided to show off this great shirt I picked up at Horr Menswear first, since the deep rich purple color and the fit are just superb. It’s a great casual shirt and goes great with a pair of jeans. It also comes in a large number of mesh body sizes to fit just about any of the mesh bodies out there. For just 1L this shirt is a steal of a deal. Hunt it down before April 21st when this hunt ends.

Shirt Mesh Sizes Available:

  • Classic XS – XL + Alpha
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Tending Bar_002

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!

Nope, I’m Not Too Old For an Easter Egg Hunt!

Happy Easter

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  After all of Kat’s Fabulous Finds from the Easter Egg Hunt over at the Land of Rainbows, I journeyed to the sim to check it out for myself.  Right away, I discovered the colorful egg from Ascend, and excitedly teleported home to open my free prize…

A New Stan

… and then discovered the Ben Slim Fit Shirt package included only versions for mesh bodies.  At first, that was a big bummer, but I had been toying with the idea of picking up a mesh body anyway, so I decided to take the plunge and go full mesh.  After my transformation, the top fit my Belleza Jake body to a “tee” (ugh, even I winced at the bad pun – sorry).  It showed off my newly acquired muscles, and the texture featured realistic wrinkles.  The front is a solid charcoal color, and a cheery holiday message is printed across the shoulder blades. Best of all, it was completely free as a gift in the Easter Egg Hunt, which I appreciated after my spending spree.  The hunt runs until April 6th, so there is still time for you to “hop” on over and do some searching for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I’m looking forward to blogging a wider variety of clothing than I was able to show in the past.  It will take some time to get used to my new face, but at least Ripley didn’t run and hide from me when I put it on.  Hopefully, the best readers in the world will think it looks ok, too.  Until next time, Happy Easter!

E-Clipse Design wants to wish you a Hoppy Easter too! And they are giving out a fantastic free group gift to celebrate.

Hoppy Easter and I hope Peter Cotton Tail leaves you lots of chocolate eggs!

On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!
