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!

Fifty Linden Friday Finds for Guys!

Watch Out

“Hey, Serena? I’ve been calling you all morning. Where are you? I thought you wanted me to bring you some lunch today? Oh well, call me.”

Awww, poor Gavin. I forgot to tell him that I was feeling better and decided to take Fergus out for a ride this morning, lol! 😳

FLF for Guys

But everything worked out since Gavin was able to do a little Fifty Linden Friday shopping!

Starting at the top: Gavin scored with some great hair from Wasabi. The Marcus hair comes in a special pack of 7 colors, with and without roots. The hair is resizeable and even comes with a smaller version for the ladies.

Gavin’s sweater is a FLF deal from Etham. The Julian Turtleneck comes in blue or gray and is sized for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

There are some really nice Fifty Linden Friday finds out for the fellas today, so be sure to grab them before midnight SLT tonight!

Free Jeans

Gavin also managed to find a pair of free jeans! The Worn Denim Jeans by Apple May Designs are a free gift at The Free Dove.

The jeans come in sizes XS-L with an alpha layer, but they work fine on Gavin’s Slink mesh body.

There is also a version for the ladies in the box!

Guess I’d better give Gavin a call so he can bring me some dinner. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Pinball

Pinball_001

Remember when Pinball was all the rage? Maybe not if you’re young, it might just be “retro” to you. But I remember when Pinball was a big deal and scoring the new high score was THE THING.

Speaking of scoring

I scored a new shirt at Etham that you won’t want to miss out on. This great group gift is free with your free group join. Just don the group tag and pick up the gift. It includes a color change hud for the shirt as well. You can pick one of 12 colors for the shirt, and one of 5 colors for the zipper.

The shirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

Colder Than a Brass Toilet Seat in the Yukon

12-28-2017
…And that’s pretty darn cold

An arctic blast found it’s way to my part of the world this week and I have been experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the past few days.  I’ve done my best to stay inside, but there are times you just have to go out and brave the elements. I’m just glad my dog isn’t a fan of the cold either…

Wrap up and put a lid on it…

Today’s look is a mix of various gifts that are still available as of this posting. The David Sweatshirt by etham is a FREE gift at the Shop & Hop Sale and I was told it would be available until the end of the month. The sweatshirt comes with a texture HUD for different colors and comes fitted for the following body types:

  • Belleza
  • NX-Nardcotix
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Standard
  • TMP

TheWinter Holiday Scarf is the current group gift at ::K::. This scarf comes rigged in both men’s and women’s sizes and adds color to any look. The ::K:: group is FREE to join. And to top it off, (pun intended) I found the Wish Newsboy Cap by Couture Chapeau as a FREE gift to members of The Menstuff Lounge. The cap includes a sizer to get the proper fit. The Menstuff group does have a 50L join fee for non members.

Now… could someone please throw another log or five on the fire? I’m FREEZING!!!

And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.

Tip Your Hat to Style

Tip Your Hat to Style

I really have to tip my hat to the creators who are participating in the Menstuff Hunt. The prizes this round are outstanding as usual. I ran across a new-to-me designer – Hot Fuss – and was pleased to come away with two items – not only the hunt gift, but also a lucky letter chair gift.

The Hat.

If you stop by Hot Fuss, you’ll be able to pick up this men’s fedora as part of their contribution to the Menstuff Hunt. It’s an excellent design in a fedora style and yours for only 1L and a little hunting time. It’s sure to add class and style to most any outfit. I didn’t have any trouble adjusting it to fit my head, and it looked great over the top of my usual hairbase.

The Sweater.

While I was at Hot Fuss, I noticed they had out two lucky letter chairs. No group is required for either and they are completely FREE. One is for the ladies, but the other is for us menfolk. My letter came up while I was hunting down my hat and I was able to pick up this Tristan sweater in all the standard mesh sizes. It even includes a color change hud with three color choices. I’m showing you the fawn color, as that matched the hat, but it also included a really nice navy and a coal shades all in this traditional diamond print.

The cut, flow, and fit of the mesh shirt is excellent, and it would be well worth checking to see if your letter would come up. The chair was on a short timer, so your wait might not be too long.

Tip Your Hat to Style 2

The Necklace.

It never hurts to add a final touch to a classic outfit. I made a stop by etham to see what they had as their Menstuff Hunt prize and was pleased to discover a finely crafted Chainmail Cross as the gift. It is a FREE gift. Just find the iconic blue t-shirt and pay 0L and it is yours to add to your inventory.

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

Jump the Fence

Jump the Fence

It wasn’t easy getting past the crowds to get into this round of Fameshed, but it was worth it! Have you heard the news? It’s Fameshed‘s 4th anniversary, and that means gifts! Thankfully, creators have generously remembered us menfolk!

I was able to pick up a couple of really outstanding gifts I wanted to share with you. You’ll have plenty of time to jump to Fameshed later if you don’t want to fight the crowds just yet, as it will be running until May 27th.

I picked up this really fantastic mesh shirt in all the standard sizes by etham called “Patrick Jumper” as the first FREE gift I wanted to share with you. You do need to wear the Fameshed group tag, but the group is FREE to join, so you just need a free group slot. This shirt is of excellent quality and make, and worth putting in your inventory.

I also grabbed this fence you see behind me. It too is a FREE gift at Fameshed being offered by Di’Cor. There are two parts in the gift, the straight links, and a corner link, so you can make a fence to suit your needs. Each piece is 4 prim, and when two are linked they add up to 7 (instead of 8). They are high detail mesh.

Blogger Attempts To Increase Popularity By Appearing Nearly Naked!

whc slavie lkd 1

With all the lovely Fab Free bloggers, I’m sure you will all be disappointed that the nearly-naked one is me. However, since I already have your attention, here is another helping of amazing prizes from the Menstuff Hunt. It is a 1L hunt, but many of the stores have put their prizes out for free! I realize that the outfit I am wearing will not appeal to every male avy on the grid. Some of us have very few opportunities to wear something like this. Being a blogger, though, is about helping all people find wonderful items. A great set of silks like this could come in handy one day for a rowdy intimate role play or a costume-based event, even if you are not naturally submissive. The Kanzi Silks in Brown from Lo Kajirus Designs are partially mesh, with flexi silk panels which move beautifully as you dance. In style, they have an Asian inspired design while maintaining a classic silk look appropriate for this kind of garment. This is a very sexy look, has tons of style and is a great item to pick up at only 1L.

In all of the pictures in this post, I am wearing a set of eyes I picked up in the Menstuff Hunt over at Avi-Glam. The FREE AG Frozen Eyes are a beautiful light silvery blue and are going right into my eye collection. I am especially excited because I was unfamiliar with Avi-Glam until now, so now I have another potential source of excellent quality eyes thanks to this hunt!

This pose is another prize from this Menstuff hunt. Hopefully, you are getting the idea of how broad the spectrum of hunt prizes is in this one-hundred-store hunt. The M-Sheer-Menstuff-10 from Pics n Poses is a particularly nice pose, best used highlighting the left shoulder and chest of the model. I used it turning slightly, to show more of the details in the front of the Kanzi Silks, and it worked nicely. This is a very nice FREE gift from the people at Pics n Poses.

whc gray pin suit 1_001

Slipping into something a little more comfortable (for you to see me in), this really great gray suit is the FREE Menstuff Hunt prize from (Red)Sand. The Pin Stripe Suit in gray is a set including a matching mesh pin stripe blazer and slacks. The blazer has the black, open-collar dress shirt integrated into it, and (Red)Sand thoughtfully included an optional gap hiding layer, just in case you need it. As it turns out, I did not. The fit was excellent on my avatar without it. The material looks soft and comfortable; it will go nicely in my smart casual wardrobe for those nights that call for a bit more than a T-Shirt and jeans.

whc oddity orn 4_001

Oddity is an excellent store on Second Life and has created some truly amazing items, including a pair of group gift boots that are SO good, I changed the rules of my blog just so I could write them up! For the Menstuff Hunt, their prize is this unique fitmesh shirt featuring an excellent texture hud that they are giving to us for FREE! The Eivissa Mistic BASIC Shirt is definitely casual but highly attention getting with the realistic cloth textures and rich, decorative detailing. The buttons appear to be metal, standing out from the shirt and the button holes are closed loops, an eye-catching touch. The best part about the shirt, though, is the texture hud that comes with it. It offers the shirt in six colors, the trim in six colors, the buttons in six colors, plus it has two options for brightness and the choice of it being materials-enabled or not! If there was an award for most fantastic hud on Menstuff Hunt prize, Oddity would win it hands down for creating this prize!

The black jeans I chose to help show off this shirt are part of the Menstuff hunt prize from Wilson’s Designs. These are simply styled and carry a nice black denim texture making them a good choice for a go-to mesh set of basic black jeans. That isn’t all you’ll find in the hunt prize over at Wilson’s Designs. These jeans come with a gray, zippered men’s jacket, too, making the hunt prize even greater. For a FREE hunt prize, this is a very good pick up as well.

My last highlighted item this week comes from a creator who is one of my personal favorites. Over the years, Etham has made – and yes, even given away as hunt gifts – some gorgeous crosses. For this Menstuff hunt they have given us the Knight Cross Necklace in gold and black. Although it would look especially great in a Goth style outfit, it is still simple enough to be worn with more casual clothes. The Knight Cross Necklace comes with a short or long chain version and is offered to us for FREE from Etham.

I began this week’s post nearly naked; slithering about to some intoxicating world beat music under the glare of the hot desert sun, and managed to end the post sharing with you my affinity for the crosses Etham has produced over the years. I, my friends, am not easily pigeon-holed. As a blogger, that means I am inclined to share a wide variety of items instead of just those that are “my style”. Or, it might just mean I am crazy. Either way, have fun looking for the little blue T-Shirts that hold the Menstuff prizes in them, and I will be seeing you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler
