Taking the Plunge

Taking the Plunge

Yeah, don’t dare me…

She wanted to go to the beach. Great, I thought, UNTIL… she wanted to sit on her beach chair, talk on the phone, then decide she was going to read her latest “romance” novel. I came out to have fun. I said, “Hey, let’s go for a swim”. She just shook her head at me as she turned another page. “If you don’t come swimming with me , I’m going to throw you in the water” I threatened. She peeked up over her book and said those three words she knows not to say to me… “I.DARE.YOU.” Sorry, babe… you’re getting wet!

John Dee Green…

We found a cute his and her matching look at the John Dee’s Emporium cart at The Wash Cart Sale. She found the  ABRAXAS Crop Top and ABRAXAS Shorts for just $10L each and I decided to match her look with the ABRAXAS Espadrilles and ABRAXAS Shorts also, just $10L each. The Wash Cart Sale continues through April 12th.

This Group Gift has her upside down…

Frimon Store,  has joined our Fabulous Designer Program and has put out a cute Couples gift pose for our FabFree members. The Couple 21 pose is their gift to you and to claim it you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

Wish You Were Here…

Wish you were here

…. at The Wash Cart Sale

It’s that time again to head down to The Wash and find some great inexpensive deals.  I’ll be showing many items over the next several days and I’ll start off by wearing one look I found at the Rispetto Designs cart.  I combined the Gregory Mesh Shirt and the Klint Mesh Washed Bleached Blue Jeans for a super casual look. Each piece is just $10L… not a bad find for the money.

Just a drop in the bucket

Before the Cart Sale opened I was out on a World Tour… the World Tour Hunt, that is… and found a Wishing Well at Khargo. The well also includes all the landscaping behind me (wall not included) and only has a Land Impact of 10. This hunt gift cost just $2L to pick up. Every good well needs a bucket and I found just the right one.  The Holdable Water Bucket was found on the Marketplace by Arsia’s Gorean Delights for only $25L.

All the great deals at the Wash Cart Sale is just a drop in the bucket to look fabulous! The Cart Sale runs from March 29th – April 12th.

Creepy Steamy

Give Me Steam_001

Feeling Creepy?

Or are you feeling Steamy? I think this look is a cross between dark burlesque and creepy steampunk and I really like it. I managed to put it together for free with some pieces from various gifts that you can grab up if you hurry. All the offers expire in the next three days (March 31st). So don’t wait.

First up, grab my burlesque corset from BYRNE as the free March Subscribo gift. You’ll get both a copper (shown) and purple (not shown) color in your gift box. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus you’ll also get popular mesh body sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. While you are at BYRNE, be sure to pick up the free group gift (the group is free to join). It was really nice as well.

Steam on!

I paired my new corset with a pair of outstanding Steampunk boots from the Steam XII Hunt. These boots were free as part of the hunt, and I found them with just a bit of searching at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They are unrigged mesh, and made to fit standard bodies as well as all the major mesh body types. I got them to fit my Maitreya body perfectly just by hiding my feet! The detailing on them of the gears, straps, and buckles is amazing, and they matched the Corset just perfectly.

Give Me Steam_002

Carnival touches…

I really liked the lucky dip this week at PA Designe and couldn’t help but try my chances at it. Luckily I landed the scull nose chain and earring. It’s all one piece for easy fitting. When I attached it, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t require any editing at all to get it to fit to my Catwa Head. This item is completely free if you are lucky on your dip in the bucket. Take a chance on this skull inspired jewelry piece!

Hey there Fabulouses! If you haven’t done your 7 Seas Fishing at Sn@tch recently, make sure you check it out.   I have a sad feeling that this prize will be switched out soon, and it is SO not to be missed!  All you will need is the 7 Seas Casual Fishing Rod… no bait required!

The Sn@tch Spring Day Grab Bag Includes…

This pastel packed, spring themed grab bag includes 21 free clothing items both in mesh and mesh body appliers / system layers for mix and matching.  Whether you have a system body or a mesh body, most of these items should work, as Ivey Deschanel thinks of everyone!   I think I even spied a sweet pair of shoes in there!

About The Dress…

Today I am showing off #12, which is the Birdie Dress in Violet.  This sweet dress is a gorgeous shade of violet, has an all over floral print and is trimmed in lace.  It comes in mesh sizes XS-XL and includes an alpha layer for those on the system body.

No problems. ♫

Anything But Ambiguous

AMBIGUOUS

 

Kicking down the cobblestones…

I’m strolling down the sidewalk trying my best not to look enigmatic in my attire. But judging by the stares I’m receiving, I feel I am failing in my endeavor…

Today’s outfit is anything but ambiguous, except for the fact that it comes from Ambiguous. The Sparkle Regency Gold Suit Set is the prize on the Midnight Mania Board. The suit included a hat and shoes and also has a texture changing HUD for the tie. This outfit would be great for Victorian or Steam Punk role play. The Midnight Mania Board is FREE to touch, as there is no group to join.

So ends my grammar lesson for today…. (thank you Dictionary.com)

Have Lens, Will Travel

Have Lens, Will Travel

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” 

Imogen Cunningham
1883 – 1976

I sometimes feel like I’m on the quest for my next photograph before the last one I took has been uploaded. But I say that in a good way. With each snap of the shutter, the better I become at my craft. I suppose the favorite thing about photography is that it takes me to places I’ve never seen before and through it, brings you there with me…..

Point and Shoot…

Today, I’m featuring a FabFree Group Gift from Zendra.  The Camera Necklace is FREE to our group members and our group is always FREE to join. The camera includes a texture changing HUD if you want it to be a color other than basic black. This is a must have for any photographer or tourist.

Digitally Delivered…

To pick up these group gifts, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me

It’s a beautiful morning…

…at least in Second Life. It’s a bit overcast and rainy in my neck of the woods. While checking on the horses this morning, I stopped for a rest on one of my hay carts and a little bird flew down and kept me company on my respite….

Fully enMESHed…

I’m acclimating to my new look very easily. I really thought it would be more traumatic than it has been (ok… trying the demos WAS a bit traumatic). But now that I have been fully enmeshed, I want you show you a FREE hunt gift from the enMESHed Into Spring 2017 Hunt. I found the blue egg hunt item at Fearsum and won the 2 Tone Sweater as a prize. Since I was feeling lucky, I stopped by BHB and tapped a few of their FREE, no group to join, Midinght Mania Boards and woke up this morning to a new pair of Dempsey Boots. These boots are perfect for my morning chores or a night out for line dancing. (like she’d EVER go line dancing, just sayin‘). And ladies, these boots are unisex so try to win a pair for yourself.

My little friend is telling me it’s time to get back to work. Later, ya’ll.

March On!

March On_001

March on!

We are marching into the last week of March, and I have my gold shoes that I found at the end of the rainbow… or to be more specific, I found them as part of the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. For just 1L and a little hunting time for the icon, you can pick these pretty gold pumps up.

For your 1 little Linden, you’ll get heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet all in one package for that tiny little sum. It’s well worth the trip to the Lindy Modern & Retro. Plus while you are there, pick up the other hunt gifts. There are many out! One is free, and the rest are all 1L as well. You can stock up on your shoe wardrobe!

A touch of green…

I needed a dress for my new dress shoes, so I picked up the pretty green dress from Ass Kicking Angels. It is the free FabFree group gift out for March! It includes both this lovely dress as well as the matching necklace (which has a pretty clover attached to it).

You’ll get the following sizes:

  • Standard classic avatar
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Lucky to be a New Man

New Man

(Mesh) Eyes without a face….

When i came back to Second Life, I spoke of how I was going to transform myself into a new and improved Carson of today, instead of my system Carson of 2012. Over the course of several months, I feel that my quest for a total makeover is complete (until something new and shiny catches my eye). I have finally converted over to my new mesh head.  I’m sure I’ll be tweaking the sliders for several weeks, but this is the new me (which, I think looks a lot like the old me).

Lucky Treasures…

I was lucky enough to score some FREE gifts from the lucky boards at Tig’s Treasures. I got the blue and white Canyon Leather Jacket and the Men’s Navy Chino’s while standing at the boards (I have so much fun on my free time). The boards rotate, so there are plenty of gifts to be had. The board is set to the group but it is FREE to join! I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear available at The Menstuff Lounge that I previously wore [HERE].

I hope you like the new “me” as much as I do!
