Galvanized

Happy Hump Day, fabulous readers!

I decided to shoot some hoops this afternoon and managed to find some great group gifts to wear on the court!

A True Fit

First up is my shorts and t-shirt from Galvanized. The Tru-FIT Shorts and T-Shirt come in sizes for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • TMP

I’ll give you a little tip, though. I found that the Belleza t-shirt didn’t really fit my Jake body correctly, and I couldn’t alpha out a spot in the front. So, rather than have to Photoshop the spots out of the picture, I’m actually wearing the Signature shirt. It’s a little bit around the collar, but nothing major. Also, the TMP shirt isn’t black, but olive green! This may have been fixed since I picked up the gift, but it was kind of cool to find a different color in the box.

Super Socks

A great pair of trainers needs a super pair of socks, so I was lucky to find these awesome Thermal Socks as a free gift at VALE KOER. Sizes include:

For men:

  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink

For women:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There’s a HUD with 65 different colors and patterns included, and you can alpha out sections of the socks.

Have a great day!

Snow Bunny 

12-13-2017

 Getaway…

“Why don’t the two of us plan a getaway?” I suggested. “How about a ski resort? I would really enjoy lounging by the fire, drinking hot chocolate.” She said, as she was lounging by the fire, drinking hot chocolate…

Bunny Tracks…

After placing reservations, we were off to the resort. Following a good night’s rest, I awoke early and ordered room service for two. She arose to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast. She grumbled and pulled the comforter back over her face. When she finally woke up, I was urging her to get dressed so we could hit the slopes. “But I’ve never skied before.” she exclaimed  >.<  I guess we are stuck on the bunny slopes today …. ARGH…

Skiing FREEstyle…

Today we are wearing a FREE gift (no group join) from i.mesh. The rigged Snow Suit comes for both him and her and also includes a HUD with several different color choices to get your favorite look for the slopes,  no matter how big or small they are… I also found the Stocking Cap w/Hair, a FREE group gift from Dura. This also comes with a texture HUD to get your perfect hair color.

Beach Weekend

Beach                                                                                                                                                                          Photo by Love Trill

FINALLY…. the weekend….

It is been a long hard week for the both of us, either finishing jobs or beginning new ones. One thing we could most definitely agree on was that we needed a getaway to let the events of the week drain away and just relax. So, off to the beach we go. As I’m sitting here looking out over the ocean and enjoying the cool breeze in my face,  she hands me one of her magazines and tells me to answer the questions on a compatibility test…. I thought this was supposed to be a stress-free weekend…. /me sighs…

It’s A Wrap

You can find her wrapped Puerto Rico Bikini as a FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Faboo! It comes in several mesh body specific sizes as listed below.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is FREE to join, and once you do – you can pick up a whole list of group gifts [FOUND HERE].

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic

My *AHEM* banana hammock is also a gift at Faboo. The Kanji Thong is one of the many group gifts available to Faboo members.  The Faboo group is FREE to join, but the gifts are pay 1L, get 1L refunded. I’m also wearing tats (GASP) today. The Black Star Tattoo is a 5L gift from the Red Girl booth at the Spotlight Event. The Tattoo comes in both Omega and Slink appliers for both upper and lower tattoos. I also stopped by REBELLION  and after joining the group, was able to pick up the Aviator Sunglasses, one of many group gifts available to members. The Rebellion group is also FREE to join.

Getting Beachy…

Our pose today is the latest group gift from Come Soon PosesBeach Weekend is just what the doctor ordered to unwind and relax. The couple’s pose comes with a chair and a chaise lounger, an umbrella, a beer beverage cooler, and a cute little pup to keep you entertained.  Also included is a wearable magazine, if you’re into taking silly quizzes… And what is the price, you are probably wondering? Why, everything you see is FREE. It’s quite a nice setup for just being a FREE gift.

Now back to the quiz… Question 2 – Do you follow her every command?  ummmm, say what???

The early morning grab & go…

She told me it was going to be a busy day and not expect to hear much from her today… What I didn’t expect was for her to rush out the door with MY keys and phone in hand! Oh well, I’ll make do. I only have a few errands to run so I’ll drag her purple 10 speed out of the man cave (yeah, she stores her stuff in there also) and take her pink phone just in case she realizes her error and wants to swap.

Go hard or go home….

Today’s outfit is part of what you’ll find on the Men’s Only Hunt 9. I picked up the Baseball Shirt at Razor and a seemingly flawless match of a Go Hard Baseball Cap at 7 Mad Ravens.  I accessorized with more gifts from the hunt with a Hipsta Watch from PBM Enterprises and the Caravalli Glasses I found at Mulloy. I also switched up my fuzzy face today with the hunt gift from Nivaro  with the Tribal Stuble 1 beard applier.

Hipster Style…

My set is also a prize to be found on the Men’s Only Hunt 9. Find the hunt item at Come Soon Poses and the Hipster Style Scene can be yours. The set comes with the bike, the phone and the pose. Be warned, this thing is large, so make sure you have plenty of room to rez it. (it swallowed the house).

Ah, there is is calling, realizing what she did and apologizing. Don’t worry, babe… I’m on my way home…

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Hats Off

Hats Off

I did some more checking on the Men Only Hunt that ends April 30th. It’s not too late for us men to get in on the goods. I found several item’s that are not to be missed.

You’ll want to stop by Ducknipple and pick up this FREE red hoodie. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well standard fitmesh sizes as well. It has a terrific texture and the fit is of excellent quality. I really liked the hoodie style.

I also picked up these cargo pants from High Impact Actionwear. My hoodie covers up the belt buckle and top part of the pants which is really unique, but I wanted to be able to show you both of these quality items. These FREE pants have well detailed pockets and a plaid inset at the waist that is a great feature. Be sure to pick them up before the hunt ends.

I also really love this FREE pose by Come Soon Poses that is part of the MOH7 Hunt. You get the pose as well as the hat (a prop) to add to it.

Hats Off 2

Details make the man! And I found a couple of details that you won’t want to pass up. These are good for both ‘modern’ avis and would also be great for roleplayers as well.

My Hipster Eye Scar is the FREE Men Only Hunt gift from !BaaaH and comes in several skin tones so you can get just the right shade (from light to dark) to match your facial skin coloring. It would be excellent for any type of roleplay or just to add to that macho feel.

I also added on this really terrific Warrior Stubble beard from Nivaro. It comes in “hard” and “soft” versions. I’m showing you the hard version in the pictures above. This too is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift.

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

A Little Summer in the Winter

I think Love’s mood of needing a minute away from the Holiday rush may be catching.

A little Summer in the Winter

I love this time of year but after all the snow and reindeer and Santa red… I needed some Summer. And isn’t that one of the niftiest things about Second Life… Summer, or Spring or Fall when ever you want it.

I found my “Off” day outfit at the Wash Cart Sale at JK Style’s cart. This is the “Janet” outfit. Not only do you get the sweater and the jeans AND the boots for the 10L price tag. But you also get a HUD to change the color of the sweater to one of five colors. That’s a pretty sweet deal. The outfit comes with alphas for the boots and the top and the sweater comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L.

Even as I’m complaining about the Holiday rush, I’m taking advantage of the fantastic Christmas Advent at KittyCats. These are the  “Frost” Hoop earring from Swear, Lapoint & Bastchild. Long name… great earrings. These large hoops come with a HUD to change the metal, the bead and the charm. All told that’s six metals, five beads and four charms.

A Little Summer in the Winter

My equine companion for my escape comes from Come Soon Poses. This is Gacha machine #4  located just outside the shop and it’s a tiny 25L to play. “Best Friends” comes with the horse and pose and a huge fully build complete scene.

Tomorrow, I’ll get back to Christmas….

Lady Christmas

Happy 25L Tuesday, FabFree Folks!

Lady Christmas

Since it’s the Tuesday before ‘the Big Day’, I was extra happy to find some 25L goodies in the holiday spirit. My gorgeous fur trimmed gown is the ‘Lady Mary’ from Whatz and it’s perfect for that elegant Mrs. Santa look. The gown comes with it’s alpha layer and the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL.

My lovely wreath prop is also on today’s 25L list. This is the ‘Fluffy Wreath’ from Dysfunctionality. The wreath is all Mesh and is only 1land impact when you rez it at the original size. But you can make it as big as you need to though the LI does increase as you do.

Lady Christmas

As I was searching out the 25L Tuesday deals, I found a great little FREE Hunt going on at Come Soon/ Dita Couture. There are blue snowflakes hidden all around the Come Soon shop and each one is loaded with prizes. I found tattoos, poses, outfits and jewelry! My pose is actually from a group pose set called “Happy Family” which comes with poses for four and a little friend.

My lovely jewelry set is also from the Come Soon Hunt. This is the Galadriel earrings and necklace set. Both pieces come with a handy resize script so you can get the perfect fit. Galadriel was also FREE as part of the Hunt.

25L Tuesday will end at midnight SLT and the Come Soon Xmas Hunt ends on December 24! So don’t delay, my dears!
