Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

The Walk

Sorry For the Stupid Things…

I can be a Grade A #1 jerk. I’m reminded of that every time I mess up… which is often. But it takes a strong woman to deal with my childlike childish behavior. She’s forgiven me for the whole New Year’s Eve fiasco. Now I have to be on my best behavior (and learn to keep my mouth closed). I am starting out the new year with a new attitude… She’s always right! (we’ll see how long that lasts  🤔) And I’m starting off the year in a new group gift from insomnia. The Men’s Long Shirt is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join. This shirt comes with many choices, styles dependent on size, and comes tuck and untucked. I’m also wearing the $10L Distressed Work Jeans by Dark Water Designs as part of the Wash Cart Sale. The last day of the sale is January 4th so get it before it’s all packed up.

Walking the Walk and Talking the Talk…

She’s forgiven me and it’s time to kiss and make up, and time for me to start keeping my word. So we are going to walk upstairs and “talk” about it.  Walking is one of the FREE group gifts at RK Poses. There are several group gift poses to grab, but I suggest you have a look around at both the couples and singles poses. You won’t be disappointed. and speaking of not being disappointed… Hey! did you just grab my…. 😍

The Unforgiven

Kicked Out

But I Called….

… and told her I was stopping for a beer after work with the guys. And yes, I know it is New Year’s Eve and that we HAD plans. But, you know how it goes… time just got away from me. So, as I walked through the door, she was madder than that bear in The Revenant. She told me to and I quote “Get the @#&* out of MY (thought it was ours) house and don’t come back!”. Yeah, I was a few hours late, but we still had time to make the party. Now I’m sitting here in the cold and contemplating just what I did wrong. I’m glad I grabbed the Hunter Jacket by BRAVURA Boite Noir to keep warm. You can find this as a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge. While I was there I also picked up the JZ For Men Classic Tan Jeans, another FREE group gift to the Menstuff members. The group does cost $50L to join, but with the many great gifts, it makes the joining fee well worth it.

A Reprieve, sort of…

After about an hour of me freezing and sulking for being a bad person and her staring me down out the window with eyes made of dragon fire, she opened the door and told me to come inside and warm up. I told her I was sorry and promised it would never happen again. She simply said “OK”, then pointed towards the chair and said this was where I’d be sleeping tonight. AND I was to keep my “hat” on. I reached up and realized that I had forgotten I had on the Baby I’m Back! Lampshade from !gO!  or even how it got on my head. The lampshade comes with a texture HUD if you want to make sure you match.  So here I am, warming by the fire and slowly realizing that this little incident is not yet over…

Forgiven - sort of

The After-Christmas Return Rush

newclover Neo Coat brown Neo SLacks black

Looking for those After-Christmas deals…

Love and I came to a compromise when it comes to shopping… She lets me carry her bags and I don’t complain about it. I’m not quite sure how that works in my favor. 😖 I honestly can’t believe she wanted to return my gift! We checked out the post holiday deals and did I find a great one.  We stopped at NEWCLOVER and I found many items on the racks marked down to …wait for it… FREE! I came away with several nice looking outfits and I’ll show you a couple of them. I paired the Neo Brown Coat and the Neo Black Slacks for a business casual look. I’m also wearing the Brown Dress Shoes, which is a FREE group gift from Gabriel.

Throwing out the old and hanging up the new…

As you can see behind me, I’ve been doing some sorting of my closet. I’m slowing getting rid of the old to make room for the new. I received this FREE Hanger Set as a group gift from NEWCLOVER .  Two more Items I found there for FREE were the Neo Navy Slacks and Navy Line Flow Shirt. Can someone answer this question… Why does a woman get mad after they ask you if their butt looks big in a pair of jeans and you answer honestly? Sometimes I just can’t win….

Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Wilson's Merry Christmas Hunt

Now it’s the middle of the night on the open road…

I heard that a certain someone was complaining that I didn’t have a car. WELL... I just happened to come across one sitting on the edge of the road. It had a hastily written sign stuck to the windshield that simply read “FREE”. Who am I to look a free car in the mouth… err… or something like that. I finally got the old girl started (just to be clear, I mean the car) and I drove it down to Wilson’s Designs were there is still time left to find the Brown Leather Jacket and Blue Slacks, the hunt prize on the Merry Christmas Hunt. Find the prize and it can be yours for just one shiny Linden ($1L). The Merry Christmas Hunt runs through January 2nd.

The heater don’t work and it’s oh so cold.

It’s a good thing I’m wearing the Black Leather Booties,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel. It seems that this jewel of a car isn’t wanting to start. I am also still wearing (and possibly will never take off) the FREE A&D Clothing Top Gun Glasses you can still get under the tree at Cosmopolitan, that I previously showed [HERE]. Maybe if I get out and push then pop the clutch, it will start. If all else fails, I can always call Serena to come pick me up…. ummm why did her phone go straight to voicemail?

Deadwool & Pie

Deadwool

Walking off the pie…

I admit, I had one too many slices of pumpkin pie 🍰, and YES I made it! So I decided to take a little stroll to burn off some excess holiday calories. When I was out waiting on a bench shopping the other day, I happened to buy a few Christmas presents for myself. Anyone who knows me is astonished that I actually SPENT MONEY on myself or anyone else, (the present I got Love only cost $10L.. shhhh). I have been told ever since I came back that I HAVE to shop at Deadwool. I found out they had the Erik Gloves as a FREE group gift and I was in the door. And that’s where It went downhill from there….

They get you with the marketing every time…

I picked up the gloves and then looked slightly to my left and I saw it… The Mesh Duster… My mind was racing… I want this… I NEED THIS!  The logical side of my brain was saying “You don’t even know if it fits”. I instinctively clicked for a demo. “Great, it fits… no, no It wasn’t supposed to fit.” Time to do the math… I can buy one. OR I can buy the fatpack of three (because I know in hindsight I always wish I gotten the fatpack.. as you will see). So I put down $899L for the fatpack and greedily opened it up like a child opening up presents under the tree.

Baring my chest or not…

I need a shirt to go under the jacket. “The simplest thing would be to just get a shirt here” my mind was in full spend mode at this point. It was time I took control again. I decided I could find a free or cheap option elsewhere. TL:DR I ended up back at Deadwool l and purchased the Hugo black denim shirt for $360L. Yes, I lost that battle with my own brain. Now my brain says I should have bought the whole shirt fatpack… Dang, it was right again. I did manage to save myself some money on the pants. I picked up the Peter Outfit by TentatioN, a FREE group gift at the Menstuff Lounge and used the pants to make this great look.

A&D Clothing - Top Gun Glasses Deadwool - Erik Gloves Mera - Scarf

Accessorize then exercise…

I already mentioned I got the Erik Gloves at Deadwool  (where this long story began). I Also picked up two gifts under the Christmas tree at CosmopolitanA&D Clothing has provided the Top Gun Glasses as a FREE group gift. I finished off the look with the  Meva Scarf another FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]. I did use the color change HUD to give it a completely different look. After all this spending, I was a bit stressed out. Now you know why I went on a pie 🍰 binge and why I’m walking to work off those added pounds. It’s such a “chore” to keep your body fit SL. :🍰

A Cat and a Hat

Shea Designs - Men's Mesh Wither Outfit

No more Seussicals…

There will be no rhymes this time… DOH! Take 2….  In my busy travels, I came across this FREE kitschy Kei’s Kitteh Clock courtesy of Kei Spot (say that three times fast) at the Midwinter Fair. This clock has a certain appeal and can actually tell time. I resized it to be the centerpiece of my wall but you can make it whatever size fits your needs.

Black and Blue and Nothing to Do….

For those who look at my Flickr account, you have probably noticed I sit around in my spacious studio loft and take random photos of myself being bored. On the rare occasion I do venture out, I check out stores for good deals or gifts. I happened to find once such gift at Shea Designs. The FREE group gift is the Men’s Mesh Winter Outfit. The black and blue sweater and jeans outfit looks great with the Shearling Short Boot, the FREE group gift from Gabriel. And to make it even better, both of these groups are FREE to join. Finishing off the look I’m still wearing (but I’ve changed the look)  the Cesar II Hair and Hat by [bade], one of the many FREE group gifts at Cosmopolitan that I previously showed [HERE]

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night…

No wait. That’s just the start of the latest novel I’ve been reading. Scratch that.

It was the eighth of October… another day of the Mens Only Hunt and another great find to put into my inventory. You won’t want to miss out on this outstanding mens leather jacket from Gabriel. It’s FREE other than the cost of your hunting time. Once you find the iconic beer, you’ll get this jacket in standard, Slink, and TMP fits, and the box also includes and alpha for standard avatars. I really like the zipper details and the asymmetrical collar.

I paired this jacket with some men’s jewelry I picked up at Chop Zuey. The men’s group gift there (the Gibraltar Necklace in silver) is top quality and resizable. Ladies you might like it too. The group is 350L to join but the gifts are top notch and frequently given, making the group well worth joining.

Summer Classic

Greetings FabFree,

Summer Classic

In the spirit of the long hot end of summer days, I have donned a classic summer look today. This white linin looking jacket is the free gift from Gabriel for the L’Homme readers. The jacket is paired with an attached white tee shirt to keep it from looking stodgy. The mesh jacket comes in one size with a good alpha and I found the fit to be perfect.

I also added the ‘Rock Star’ necklace from The Forge which I first showed you here. Happily, the free gift is still available if you missed it last month. As always, L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Call me blonde… platinum blonde…

But seriously — the ladies have all been showing you all these great SLB13 cake gifts and I didn’t want anyone to think that us menfolk had been left out! I stopped by The Men’s Department to discover that there were a plethora of cakes out for us menfolk at the event. I’m showing you a couple of the top quality FREE gifts (no group required) that you can pick up for wearing just with a click of your teleport button.

Yes I went platinum blonde for this post. It all began with this Dura hair gift at the event. It is the SLB13 gift out at the Men’s Department and is it yours FREE when you click the cake. It includes a hair base and is resize for easy fitting. I was really impressed with the hair quality and the fit and wanted to show it off.

The other FREE gift I picked up was this really terrific button down striped shirt by Gabriel. It comes in three mesh sizes… Slink, Standard, and TMP. You’re sure to find your perfect fit.

Be sure to pick these up soon, as this round of The Men’s Department event ends June 30th of this month.
