Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

 

Blowin’ in the wind….

There is nothing more refreshing than an unexpected breeze to start blowing. I love the feeling of the air rushing past my body. Even my dog loves it enough to point her nose in the direction of the gust and lets the wind blow her ears back…

Not always equal….

I found a couple more L’Homme gifts for today’s look.  You can pick up the Asymmetric Jacket, The FREE L’Homme gift, at Gabriel. Another L’Homme gift can be picked up at GizzA Creations . The FREE Boots are next to the Oversized Sweater that I posted [HERE]. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Chess Jeans is another FREE group gift in the building of freebies at Egoisme that I talked about [HERE]

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things

You better shape up…

It’s that time of the year that I decide that it’s time to get outside and start exercising. The job I have is very sedentary and it’s easy to not get enough exercise. I decided that I would take time every day and walk or run to get back into shape.  It’s a great concept, I hope I can continue to follow through.

TRAINing…

My workout look consists of some freebies I found at NewClover. Both the Red Zip-Up Jersey and the Black Line Training Pants were both hanging on the rack for FREE. There are freebies all over the store, just be careful when buying items as not all items in the store are set to 0L. My footwear choice are my go to Vasiforms from Vale Koer. I pull these out quite often as they are so versatile with the color change HUD. It’s like designing your very own high-tops every time you put them on. The Vasiforms are FREE to Vale Koer members and the group is FREE to join.

Bad Romance at TCF

Bad Romance
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been such a long week, I’ll be so glad for the weekend. Weekend yearnings aside, I promised more of The Chapter Four Anniversary gifts, and I’m here to deliver. As I mentioned in my previous post, there is a 50L join fee for The Chapter Four group, which is a bit of a bummer, but I believe it’s worth it for these fantastic gifts.

Pr!tty Awesome Gift

Speaking of, this cute side-swept hairstyle is The Chapter Four Anniversary gift from pr!tty. This is one of those hugely generous gifts. Not only is the style a full fat-pack of colors, there are 3 color styles, rootless, medium roots, and heavy roots. There’s also a lower front version of the style. This FREE gift comes with the headband shown, and two additional headbands as well.

A Little Meow Meow

I really love the delicate detail of the two necklace combo that is the Supernatural TCF Anniversary gift. These adorable necklaces can be worn separately as well as together. Also, there is a hud included that will allow you to resize them for easy fitting.
Bad Romance 2

Going GaGa

I will tell you that I really don’t believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. However, I understand the concept, and Lady Gaga is a “guilty pleasure” of mine. That said, when I saw that the TCF Anniversary gift by Kraftwork was this sign that reads “bad romance”… yeah love it! If you’re not sure about the connection with Lady Gaga, it’s the title to one of her songs. The sign can be resized manually and has a faint glow.

White Lace

Lastly, this lingerie set is a Maitreya applier TCF Anniversary gift from Ambrosia. Just wear the applier hud and click it to apply both the top and bottom. Also, based on the name which you’ll see in the credits below, I expected the lingerie to be mauve. However, I’m not disappointed in the white lingerie. I think it looks very feminine and pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Bright Sunshiny Day

Bright Sunshiny Day

When you call my name…

… It makes my day that much brighter… even if it’s just to pick up a gallon of milk at the market. So I’m off to the store to pick up the essentials until we can make a grocery run later this weekend….

Or just walk on by…

Today I’m showing off the Men’s Floral Taupe T-Shirt by Virtual Glitter that happens to be the 1L hunt gift in the Flowerage Hunt 2. This shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. After putting on the shirt I knew what pants shorts I wanted to wear with it. I put on the Paramilitary Shorts, the FREE L’Homme gift at Prism for Men, I originally showed [HERE] and the Black Sunglassesthe Moolto Spring Fling Hunt gift at QualityDesignZ that  I first showed [HERE].
Yeah, Yeah…I won’t forget the milk….

The East End

East End

Not a safe place to be…

Walking the East End at night is not the smartest thing to do. But when the car breaks down, sometimes you just have to take the risk. I see a big red stain on the sidewalk and hope someone dropped a bottle of ketchup … PLEASE let it be ketchup. I think I’ll walk a little faster now…

Somebody’s watching me…

I’m strolling the streets in a new group gift from Spazio. The MH17 Jacket, Jeans and Blue Tennis Shoes complete outfit is FREE to Hipnose-Spazio group members and the group is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes S-L and the jeans come in XS-XL. The non-rigged shoes come with a resizer to get just the right look.
Ok, non-rigged shoes, don’t fail me now….

ETA:  This group gift is no longer available, but there are two very nice men’s group gifts out, still with a free group join, so be sure to check out the shop anyways!

Evening Anxiety

Evening Anxiety

When thoughts are swimming in your brain…

… and you can’t sleep. Nothing in particular is bothering you but your brain just doesn’t want to shut down for the night. Was it too much caffeine? or perhaps too much screen time before bed? Whatever is keeping me awake, I might as well get dressed and go sit outside. Perhaps the cool evening breeze will tire me out and let my brain rest for ….. ONLY THREE MORE HOURS? Dangit!

Over-sized is not under-dressed….

My comfy evening attire tonight includes the Oversized Sweater by GizzA Creations. This sweater is FREE to members of the L’Homme group. The sweater comes in the standard mesh sizes and is not only comfy, but stylish as well. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Baggy Lee Shorts is a FREE gift to members of the Damoour group. This group does have a 20L join fee, but there are more gifts on the wall for members.
Well, dang, I might as well put on a pot of coffee and start my day…. I’m gonna be so tired later on…..

Time for a Little TCF

Maye & TCF
Hello Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. So I decided to take some of Love’s advice from her recent post “Finally… FaMESHed” about entering an event and I am happy to report that I was able to get into the Anniversary round of The Chapter Four. Given the meager abilities of my little laptop, I knew it would be a task to manage the event. Still, the gifts were completely worth the time I spent camera-shopping for the little pink TCF Anniversary gift boxes. I’m just going to tell you now, there are tons of gifts. I’m not even sure I picked them all up, but I gave it a good try. To get the gifts at each vendor, you’ll need to be wearing your The Chapter Four group tag. Currently there is a paltry group join fee of 50 lindens. I know that’s not what everyone likes to hear, in my opinion however, it’s well worth it just for these TCF Anniversary gifts. That said, this will the first, of at least two, maybe three posts showing off my favorites of all the fantastic gifts. I want to make sure you get a good preview, so you won’t feel so bad about that group join fee. First, let’s talk about this pretty face.

It’s Gonna Be Maye

Freckles always win in my book. These freckles are courtesy of the May group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The aptly named Maye skin comes in Omega appliers for the head and body, in the tones Sand and Apricot. If freckles aren’t your thing, there’s a non freckled version in both tones as well. You will need to join the 7 Deadly Skins group to get your May group gift. The group has a one time join fee of 225 lindens, and there are monthly gifts available for men and women.

Flowers For Your Hair

Starting from the top so to speak, this pretty floral hair wreath is the FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Cheveux. The flower crown comes in this single color, and can be resized via touch menu. Also in the package you’ll find a demo for the Cheveux hair pictured in the ad.

Ribbon For Your Neck

The cute little ribbon choker is another FREE TCF gift. This one is from .BF. and it comes with a color change hud with several solid colors for the ribbon only. There’s also a separate hud for adjusting the size. It gives you a great amount of control over the choker’s size so you can get an exact fit.

Polish For Your Nails

If you’ve been looking for a solid collection of pretty nail appliers all in one hud, it’s waiting for you at TCF. The FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Aleutia is a manicure set with 30 separate beautiful colors. That is not a typo, there are 30 colors to choose from. There are 3 separate huds included, one for Slink hands, one for Maitreya hands, and one for Belleza hands.

A Cute Top to Tie it All Together

And finally, for now, this bright colorful crop top is the FREE TCF gift from GATO. I love the bright colors! Fortunately and unfortunately the top is a Maitreya applier only. No other appliers or classic  layers are included.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
