Caught! Red Handed

12-18-2017

I was just rearranging the packages…

I was not shaking them or trying to guess what’s inside. I can’t believe you would accuse me of such a thing. When I was a child, I was horrible about packages under the tree. I would try to guess every package, mine or not. Sometimes, I miss that little scamp…

Gifts before Christmas…

GIZ SEORN (formally Gizza Creations) has not one, but two gifts under the tree for guys. I’m wearing the second of the two today. The Men’s Christmas Gift II outfit consists of a red button down shirt and green trousers and in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

While this gift is free to members, there is a group join fee of 50L, but there are past gifts still available.

Still time for peace….

My Vance Roughneck Boots are the Peace on Earth Hunt prize for guys at Roped Passions. There is still time go get all the gifts on this hunt as it concludes at the end of December. Ok, Ok… I’ll put the presents back….

Right in the Kisser

Right in the kisser

Photo by Carson Caiben

It is so ON!

What started out as a nice, enjoyable walk in the snow, turned into an all out fight… a SNOWBALL fight that is. We were having a conversation, then, BAM! Right in the kisser! It was all out war until we were both covered in snow and fell back in a drift exhausted.

Match Game…

Before the great war to end all snowball fights, we happened upon a couple of great gifts at Club Escape. We both picked up the FREE matching Simon and Kimmie Jackets group gifts from Loud Rebel Designs (LRD). The sizes on the jackets are as follows:

Ladies Jacket Sizes:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Men’s Jacket Sizes:

  • 2 Fitmesh sizes w/ alpha layers

We also picked up the group gift gloves from i.mesh at Club Escape that matched the jackets. The FREE Bento Male and Female Gloves are a welcome addition to my bento collection.

Capping it off…

I awoke to a notice that there was a new group gift at ARGRACE. The Shizuki Cap w/ Hair is FREE to group members and the included HUDs contains 6 cap color and 40 hair tones. There is also a ladies style group gift as well..

Modern Woodsman

Ax-Man…

I may not have mutant superpowers, but I can swing a mean axe. Who needs adamantium claws when this axe will split a stack of logs in a matter of minutes? I just hope there is a warm beverage waiting for me inside when I’m done.

A warm winter workout…

I may work up a sweat chopping wood, but I still need to keep warm. I found some FREE items to help you look fashionable while still getting the job done. The latest group gift at Resun Fashion is the Simon Black Jacket. The Resun group is FREE to join. The jacket comes in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes S-XL w/alpha layer

I hit it big on the group Lucky Boards at Rebellion . My letter came up as I was rezzing in and walked away with the Militant V-Neck Tee in just a matter of seconds. I am NEVER that lucky. The t-shirt comes with a texture HUD for four different color combinations. You need to be a member of the Rebellion group to play the boards, but the group is also FREE to join.

Bento gloves for my Bento hands…

Ever since I received the update for my body and now have Bento hands, I’m playing with them all the time (as some of my Flickr followers have seen).  And now I can use the Male Bento Gloves, a FREE group gift at E-Clipse Design. This gift also includes a texture HUD to change the gloves color to either Sand, Brown, or Black. Ladies, there is also a gift in your size too! And just like the other two gifts, the E-Clipse group is FREE to join. You don’t have to spend a lot to look good. Just axe (ask) me… 🙂

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂

Silent Night

12-16-2017

Silent as Falling Snowflakes…

There have been a few times in my life where I have been outside on a still night and the snow is gently falling. There is a feeling of such peace that sweeps over me that it stops me in my tracks and I have to capture the moment in my mind.  I hope I have a few more of those moments in my lifetime…

Winter wear for the quiet moments….

I happened upon the Aron Jacket & Shirt, a FREE SLF&O Group Gift at Mirus. The jacket is a fitted rigged design to fit your body, no mater what the style. The SLF&O Group is FREE to join. I also grabbed the FREE Beanie group gift at Kalback when I picked up my Christmas sweater I showed [HERE]. May each snowflake that falls bring you a moment of peace…

Cousin Eddie

12-15-2017

Everyone has a Cousin Eddie…

Hey there. We’re on our way to Chicago to celebrate the holidays with our relatives, Clark and Ellen. It’s a long trip down the holiday road, but we’ll get there eventually. This is a pretty sweet camper we have.  It has all the modern conveniences.  Every time Catherine revs up the microwave, I wet my pants and forget who I am for about half an hour or so. I hope Clark doesn’t go falling in love with it now, because, we’re taking it with us when we leave there next month. Oh, and Merry Christmas, the shitter was full…

Better than a membership to the Jelly of the Month Club….

Christmas Vacation is one of my favorite holiday movies. I saw this FREE group gift Christmas Sweater at Kalback and immediately thought this would be something Cousin Eddie would wear. This sweater comes in two styles, one with a dog (shown) and the other with cats. Both sweaters come fitted for the Signature and Jake bodies, but it worked just fine for my ADAM body as well.  I hope we can make it there before I have to drain the septic tank again…

Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

X Gon’ Give it to Ya

12-14-2017

♫  First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
Then we let it POP, GO LET IT GO  ♫

X-Factor…

That song had been stuck in my head for weeks after I saw Deadpool when it was released. I recently re-watched it when I picked up the DVD for cheap (it also had a digital copy, FTW!) and it’s back, thumping it’s beats in my brain once again… The current group gift at Lavarock Creations is the Headbanger Shirt. The long sleeved tee is fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • ExMachina
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

The shirt also includes a texture HUD for five different colors. I love the look of this shirt and will make a spot in my closet.

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.
