What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Early One Morning

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses! With all of this warm weather, I got a hankering to do a little fishing… Fishing for  some free Sn@tch!  The Sn@tch Fish 4 This Outfit is currently set to the Early One Morning 23 piece set.  I am wearing several of the pieces in the photo above, but it is not limited to the items shown!  As you will see in the photo below – there are a ton of different mix and match clothing items, appliers and accessories.
Sn@tch Fish 4 This Early One Morning Vendor Ad SM
In case you are not familiar with 7Seas Fishing prizes at Sn@tch… how it works is – You purchase the casual use rod for 100L at Sn@tch in the 7Seas Fishing Vendor which you will find in the VIP Lounge by the aquarium.  Then you will need to find a place to unpack the rod and then return to snatch.  Stand near the pond, add the rod to your avatar and cast until you have all of the pieces in the set – no need to purchase bait.  There are several customizable settings for the rod which you will find by clicking it and activating the menu.  The most useful feature for me, is probably auto-cast ;)  All of the pieces in the pond are transfer so you can trade with other fishers or gift your pieces to friends.  Hang onto that rod in your inventory because you’ll need it for the next prize when it is released.

If you are wondering about this fabulous new hair I have on… It’s a sneak peek of Damselfly’s new gacha offering called Acantha which will be available at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, priced at 75L per play.  The new round of TFGC will open up on May 12th, and I can’t wait!

My Outdoor Lounge

Snapshot_002 Yep! I have been doing a little decorating again :) This time, a trip to Collabor88 – where I picked up the Second Spaces Hannah Outdoor Lounge for 88L inspired my little garden seating area that I decorated with freebies and dollarbies from Floorplan and Little Llama.

The I Love You Frame / Nerd comes with three textures which I am displaying in the black framed art and is just 1L in the Floorplan “1L or Less Section”.  The Mr. Darcy Print in the center wooden frame is also available in the same section at Floorplan along with the Le Lait Can that I have rezzed in front of the lounge – also priced at 1L each.

You can find a ton of super cute freebies at Little Llama.  I am displaying the Growing Love pot set, Mason Jar Lights and Bunny Pots – which I picked up all priced at 0L.

Make sure you take a close look at my new sandals too!  These Michelle Sandals are available as a free group gift gacha offer at Pure Poison for inworld members.  Basically how it works is – there is a gacha machine where you can play for them at 50L per play, but there is also a group machine beside it  that allows group members only to have one random free play!  The Pure Poison group is free to join and there is a whollllllle section of accessory/jewelry type items as gifts.

Silke Smooth

Snapshot_002

Hello everyone :)  For those of you that have jumped on the Lelutka mesh head bandwagon like I have, there is a Lelutka mesh head makeup applier at The Chapter Four as a free group gift throughout this round by The Skinnery!  I am wearing the Silke Lipstick and Eyeshadow applier over my Glam Affair Karin skin. These appliers allow you to wear the eyeshadow and/ or the lips so you can choose just one – or both at the same time.  It is a fantastically free way to add some diversity to your new mesh face!

The cute Manon Ring I am displaying is the free group gift by C’est La Vie at The Chapter Four.  This free group gift comes in a bunch of colours so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.

A Second Chapter

Snapshot_005

Hi Fabulouses!  Guess who else is celebrating an anniversary?  When it rains – it pours… and it’s raining free group gifts in celebration of their second anniversary over at this round of The Chapter Four!  I am showing you six of them in this post, but there are a good 25 – 30 of them – and the group is free to join!

I’ll start with the goodies I am wearing tonight – At The Chapter Four as free group gifts you can find the LpD Judy Top in white which comes in several mesh sizes as well as the Fishy Strawberry Moto Jeggings.  These Jeggings come in normal sizes and curvy sizes – plus you get black and blue!  The Bday Octopulpo friend is wearable and is the gift you can pick up that is sponsored by Moon Amore.

Now moving onto the set I have built…  The cute little rezzable Ferret in a hoodie is by Birdy and if you love this lil guy, you can play for other versions in their gacha machine.  The bag he is holding is the Eco Bag by M.Birdie Story and is holdable for avatars, but I thought he looked cute wearing it instead lol.  The double pillow with the sweet little bird on it is the gift by Serenity Style.

If you are an inworld member of the Sway’s group (250L to join), you can pick up the Seat Cushions in a folklore print along with the table and table accessories for free!  This is located at their mainstore.

Just two more pieces to tell you about… and these are not gifts, but are very affordable!  I picked up the Wannabe Boho Petal Mirror and Rug in an instore gacha machine at the Junk mainstore at 50L per play and if you love eclectic boho decorating you are going to love this set!

I’m off to open up more boxes – this is just like Christmas all over again! Enjoy your night :)
