Someone to Watch Over Me

Brooding

Tired and taking a rest…

I’ve been very busy the past week, that I’m just exhausted. So I’m slowing down and taking a little rest. Today’s look comes from HORR Menswear. The Tac-One Sweater is one of the great gifts that can be found for FREE on the Loving Kind Hunt 2. The sweater comes in Sizes XS_XL and for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

My little friend comes by way of  Pop Art. The Milk Shake Cat is a FREE group gift to members and the group is free to join. My pose, Watching You from ENIIPose is a couples pose (/me looks around) but was cute enough to do as a single. I picked this up in-store for just $25L. I’ll see you after a nice long rest. 🙂

Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams

Say you’ll remember me

Have you ever had a song that gets stuck in your head? I’ve had a run in or three with those pesky earworms that make themselves right at home and refuse to leave (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End). Sometimes you’re unlucky and it’s the most inane ditty ever (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End) and other times it’s…Taylor Swift. I’ve had Wildest Dreams bouncing about the ol’ cranium for days now and it’s even inspired this post.

Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset babe

Thankfully, I have the Fabulously Free in SL group gift list to fall back on and didn’t have to scour the grid in search of the perfect outfit to base this post around.  There’s more than one gorgeous (I wouldn’t just use the word ‘nice’ to describe them) dress on this list and what I’ve got to show you today is called Melania + Kamiri +. I don’t usually wear gowns, on account of not being able to quite pull them off besides, last time I tried someone got eaten, but this stunning number manages to detract from my chronic awkward penguin-ness by having not a few factors going for it. With its figure hugging cut and a slit in the skirt that goes right up to the hip on the left side, the Melania gown is perfect for those dramatic moments in (second) life. The way the material is gathered to the left puts to mind Grecian draped dresses as does its intricate gold trimming. Speaking of, the deep gold tones blend in nicely with the gown’s main shades of turquoise, giving it a stately feel. If I get around to visiting SL ballrooms or role-playing, this dress would certainly be my go to pick.

Sizing details:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Additional Fitmesh sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass bodies.

Included as well is a great alpha layer to help with the fitting of the dress. FabFree group gifts are as always available at no cost and you don’t have to spend any L to get your tag either. Visit this page {HERE} to get a low down on how to join up if you’re not already in the group.

Red lips and rosy cheeks, say you’ll see me again

While makeup is great, accessories do play a part in augmenting your entire look. Once again I didn’t have to look very far for jewelry as the most fitting match came in the form of the Beloved Jewelry’s FabFree group gift. The peridot gemstones of this necklace and earrings set melds beautifully with the coloring of the Melania gown and I really like the leaf-like design on both pieces as it links up well to the flowery patterns of the gown’s golden trim. In the gift package, you’ll receive a pair of earrings as well as two versions of the necklace (one with a resizer script and one without). Permissions are set to copy so you’ll be able to make backups before embarking on any modifications. This lovely and finely crafted peridot set is free with your free group tag. If you’d like a closer look at the Peridot set, check out this post {HERE}

Even if it’s just pretend

And that’s a wrap. I have to find my way down the ground level with the sun in my eyes now. Maybe I’ll meet Mr ‘Tall and handsome as hell’ on my way down, or I could lag and face plant my way off this cliff. The latter’s more likely. See you guys later!

I’m back in the Aesthetics body for one final look at The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. My last look is from LeCock. The Springtime Denim Shorts and Tank Top is a cool look for the beach, the house or even out dancing. Be sure to check out the entire list of participating stores on the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt and remember that the hunt runs through the end of March.

And here is a list of all my posts from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt:

While it has been fun to try a different look, I’m ready to “go back home”.   /me waves goodbye to Aesthetic Carson… It’s been fun!

Nameless Unicorn

Unicorns
Well Hello There, and happy Hump Day Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way to the weekend. Speaking of weekends, I am glad to be back from my long weekend away. I always feel like I’ve been gone for ages when I am unable to be online for a few days at a time. That said, I’m eager to share with you all the info about this o-m-g cute dress from Stix and this sloppy girl hairstyle from MOON.

I Know You.

It’s not a secret that I have a love for unicorns. It’s something the creator of Stix, Pixy Snook and I have in common. My girlish side that still loves unicorns, glitter, pink, and rainbows squealed with glee upon seeing this mesh dress in the Stix group notices. As shown above, this simple snug little dress comes with a texture change hud that gives you five equally adorable options. I love them all but if forced to choose, the zombicorn version is my favorite. Don’t ask me why, I don’t have an answer! lol The dress comes in a fitted mesh size for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. How do you get this awesome FREE group gift? Join the Stix (Pixy Stix) group, it’s FREE to join and either check the past notices or head over the Stix main location.

Nameless
If I Were Blind, I’d Know What You Are.

While going through the ton of notices I had from being away over the weekend, I spotted a notice from MOON about a new group gift. More girlish excitement ensued, because gift hair! Yep, I’m easily excited, and not at all ashamed of that fact. Needless to say I ran over to MOON and threw on my group tag. This hairstyle is a group exclusive sultry sloppy pony with lots of long strands. The FREE group gift comes in a fat-pack of color huds, so no matter which color you prefer, or if you like to change things up, you’re covered. The MOON group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. I think this “Nameless” hair is worth the fee alone, however you’ll find several other previous group gifts still available as well.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Moon. Hair //  – Nameless – FREE Group Gift/Group is 100L to Join

Country Life

Country Life

She said I could rez anything…

After I was allowed to decorate a corner of the house [Here],  it was then decided that my decorating skills would be put to better use outside…     While she was out, I got bored and decided to make the outdoor space a little more “me”. I found the perfect pose prop for the side yard. The Country Life Pose prop by Something New is a FREE group gift to members. This is a group pose, but Chester the goat (yes, there’s a goat wandering the property) ate the other two pose balls before I could gather some friends. The tractor and the sheep are included with this pose (you wouldn’t want Chester). The Something New group is FREE to join.

Late night online shopping…

Another sign of bordom is online shopping. I was told by more than one person I should check out this deal on the Marketplace from Polo Paul (the place my glasses came from, btw). The Alpha Outfit was a steal at just $44L. The Mesh Boots and Mesh Hardcore Jeans both come in sizes XS-XL and the Mesh Leather Jacket w/ Shirt comes in sizes S-L with two fitted sizes as well. I finished off the look by finding the Paper Coffee Cup by Indolent for $10L, also on the Marketplace. When she came home, I did my best model presentation gesture to the tractor and in return received a stern finger point to the man cave…

I need a bigger man cave….

Three Stores, Three Looks, Three Lindens

Aesthetic 7

Treasure trail…

While working my way through the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt I found a Treasure Hunt Box full of items (too numerous to show them all) at TRIMMER BAY. So along with some other hunt items, I thought I’d mix and match a few the gifts for some unique looks. I paired the TRIMMER BAY Rib Knit Anderson Blue Sweater and the Stewart Boxers out of the treasure box for a chilly morning, fresh out of bed look.

Aesthetic 8

Ripped and ready…

I found the Ripped off Tank Top at The Mesh (s)Hit and went back to the treasure box and pulled out the Metallic Sport Shorts another TRIMMER BAY gift. A nice look for working out or to remind you of that favorite shirt you just refuse to throw away…

Aesthetic 9

Appin muffins…

And the final look of the day is the CODED Stud Muffin Tee and the TRIMMER BAY Tartan Blue Stewart of Appin Boxers. The boxers come with a matching shirt, if you want to be all matchy-match with yourself. All theses gifts are just $1L each on the Spring Aesthetic Hunt.

The Evolution of a Hipster

Hipster 1

A box and a box of smokes…

Serena messaged me and told me I was cray cray if I didn’t get down to The Hipster Fair as there were plenty of gifts to be had (and even a few gifts for guys). I popped on over and boy was it … PINK! Once I got used to the color scheme, I started going from store to store looking for the green mustaches for the guy gifts. I managed to find a few dollar gifts to make a couple of amazeball hipster looks to show you. The NIDOLO XIV Outfit can be picked up at the ARTIZANA booth for just $1L. This three-piece outfit consists of the mesh suit pants, mesh shirt w/ tie and mesh suit vest. The look is versatile as the vest and shirt can be worn separately. My Hipster Glasses are a $1L gift from KIB Designs. They come in both male and female versions and can be worn on your face or on the top of your head.

Tired of Walkman around…

I also found the Adam Sweater at the Trashed booth. This $1L gift comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a great casual look. The Classic Spring Camo Sneakers by The Man Cave is a FabFree goup gift that was previously shown [HERE]. My poses are by Image Essentials. The Evolution of a Hipster poses can be had at the Hipster Fair out of a gacha machine for just $50L per turn. You won’t be devo ‘cos you’re heaps povo with theses cheap gifts.

Strangelove

Strangelove

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:
