Station Inspection

Station Inspection

The One Percent…

Most of the time is spent cleaning, inspecting, training and drilling for the one percent of the time when all my skills and knowledge must come into action. When I’m “on the job” lives depend on me. People look to me to protect their property from fire damage. Some need me to lead them to safety from a burning structure. Others depend me to pull them from a wrecked vehicle. My favorite job is rescuing cats from trees. But all these jobs are important. I am a firefighter.

Honoring the working class…

In honor of Worker’s Day, Brii Underground has set a new group gift out. The Fireman Style Costume is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join. The costume consists of the fireman’s jacket and pants, each in sizes  XS-XL. And finishing the look, the package also contains boots and a helmet.

Next time you see a firefighter, police officer, or any other civil servant, thank them for what they do!

Fit for a Queen

Queenly_001

Fit for a Queen.

It’s been a while since I stopped by Sweet Lies, so when I made my way over there the other day to see if there was anything new at the main-store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the creator had set out a free group gift. The group is free to join, so the Diona outfit won’t cost you a thing. Considering this gift is fit for a Queen that is quite a deal.

Included in the gift:

  • The dress in all the standard mesh sizes plus standard fitmesh sizes
  • Matching bracelets, armbands, earrings, and necklace

Jitters

<taps on the window> ….. <moves his face close to the glass, cups his hands around his face and peers inside> ….. < rattles the door handle>…. <taps on the window>…  

It was the best of times….

My day didn’t start out the best…. I crawled out of bed, threw on the closest and most convenient clothes, put a leash on the dog and took her out for a walk…. a normal Saturday morning. But that’s when it all started going down hill….  After Angel gets her morning treat for being a good girl, I start my routine of making coffee. I reached into the cabinet and pulled out the box of pods. My hand reached in and felt around in the nothingness of the empty box.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It was the worst of times…

Seriously, how could I have let this happen. Out of coffee… you my as well just call it a day and start over…. So I walked down to the local coffee house and opened the door TRIED to open the door. LOCKED! They aren’t open yet… so I stand here waiting for my first fix cup of the day. My early morning outfit consists of several group gifts, all of them FREE. I’ll start off with my Gift T-Shirt from Ascend. It should read “meet me at the coffee bar” instead of “Meet me at the hotel”. My  Eros Navy Jeans are a FREE group gift from *It’s Gau*. These jeans are low-rise with a baggy front. My Beanie is a group gift from <Kalback>. With a bit of adjusting, it even fit my messy hair. All these groups are FREE to join.

I see movement inside…. <rattles the door handle>…

Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

High Desert Morning

High Desert Morning

 

Packing it up for the weekend…

I need a little getaway to put my mind at ease and to get a bit of stress relief.  So I hooked up the Airstream and started driving. I found a spot in the High Desert to camp and listen to the beautiful sounds of silence. With just the wind in my face and in my ears, it’s easy to relax here.

Not a Loud Rebel….

Today’s outfit is from Loud Rebel Designs. They are celebrating their new store on the Celebration sim with a FREE group gift to members. The Dennis Outfit is a one piece outfit that combines a shirt, pants and a jacket and includes a texture changing HUD to give you three different looks. The group is FREE to join currently, so grab this gift while you can. [EDIT: The LRD group is no longer free to join. The new join fee is 50L]

Everyone enjoy your weekend…. I’m gonna relax….

Outbreak

Nothing but steam…

Ok, not the ideal place for my radiator to spring a leak, but I’m have to make due.  I saw a house a mile or so back. I could go there and ask for help, but it did look old and abandoned. maybe I should walk up ahead and made find some help.

Maybe I should have stayed with the car. The farther I walk the foggier it gets. Today I’m wearing the Wyatt Open Shirt a FREE group gift at Ashbury. The group is also FREE to join. I’m still wearing the Brooklyn Pants (with a different texture) from TentatioN  I modeled yesterday [HERE] along with the Barcelona Shoes by A&D Clothing.

The fog is starting to thin a bit. I think I see someone up ahead. They seem to be wearing a fedora and a striped sweater. I made it to my destination, this has to be Elm Street!

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

Light reading…

I had time to grab a newspaper at the bus stop today to catch the latest headlines. There’s always something interesting in there, even if it’s only the latest sales advertisements. Speaking of which, I ran across advertisements for two group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

Everyone needs…

… one more little black dress. And right now Tiar is offering a beautiful black dress as a FabFree group gift for the ladies that is a stunner. It’s free and all you need to do to pick it up is wear your FabFree group tag and go to Tiar, then teleport to the MM section of the store where you’ll find the free dress.

Sizes available: Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL, Maitreya, Slink, & Belleza.

Light Reading_002

The perfect pair…

… of shoes is waiting for you at Kokoia. Kokoia is gifting group members a free pair of shoes (the group is free to join, at least for now). There are also several past group gifts still out. I’m wearing the heels in navy with my dress (the navy was so dark it looks black on), but you also get a beige color in the box as well.

These shoes come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, The Mesh Project, and Eve mesh feet. So you’re sure to find your fit. I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below so you can get a better view of them as well as see the second color!

Brooklyn Bridge is Falling Down

Brooklyn Bridge

Crazy Dayz…

Every year, around this time, I’m a bit stressed. It’s crunch time at work… I’m always tired and a grumpy cat. Every little thing gets under my skin. It’s times like this I tend to wander off by myself because, trust me, I’m my own best company. But, I know in just a few short weeks, the stress will be gone and I can take a nice long (and well deserved) break.

Cross that bridge when you come to it…

Today, I found the Brooklyn Outfit at TentatioN. This is a for the SLF&O group members. Not a member? The group is FREE to join! This outfit comes with a texture changing HUD for both the shirt and the pants for several different looks to suit your needs. On my feet I have the Barcelona Shoes from A&D Clothing. This also includes a texture HUD for different laces and soles.

Countdown… T-4 weeks…
