Not Tonight

Untitled (Because I haven't thought of one yet!)

Hey, fabulous readers! I’m back today with some great gifts for the guys! 🙂

The Hair

Starting at the top is this great hair from DURA. Not only is it a free group gift (and free to join), but it is also a unisex style so you ladies can wear it, too!

The hair includes a HUD with 12 different colors. Click the hair for a resizer menu.

The Jacket

What inspired this look was the gorgeous jacket and messenger bag combo from Gabriel.

The Side-Zip Leather Jacket comes in black, brown, navy, and beige, and includes a “hands-in-pockets” as well as a regular version. Gavin is wearing the black hands-in-pockets version.

Note that there is only 1 size for each version, and the messenger bag is not resizeable.

Each color version includes the messenger bag and is available for purchase for just 1L each. OR, you can purchase the fatpack of all four colors for just 4L!

This offer ends on 25 February 2018, so hurry to Gabriel if you’d like to grab it!

The Boots

Finding decent free footwear for the fellas is a challenge, so I was really happy to get the notice of Resun’s latest group gift for men.

The Ivan Boots come in the black, unlaced version you see above, and in the following sizes:

  • Aesthetic
  • Slink
  • Signature
  • TMP
  • Standard mesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

A couple of notes about these boots:

  1. When I first unpacked the box, there was nothing in the folder except a landmark, shoe base, and alpha layer. When I tried again I discovered that EACH BOOT is offered as a separate item, so be sure you accept each one. I didn’t do this the first time – DOH! Then I couldn’t find where the unpacked items went… but finally found them all in my Objects folder. Just letting you know so you don’t have the same experience!
  2. The boots are not resizeable, but you can reposition them. I found the Slink version came up a bit high on the leg, so I was glad to be able to move them down a bit.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

V is for…

V is for...

Valentine Schmalentine

Unfortunately, not everyone has been hit by one of cupid’s arrows.

If you’re just not in the mood to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and would much prefer to drown your sorrows in a drink… this sweater might be perfect for you.

Fe Style has set out the V is for Valentine VODKA crew neck sweater as their February group gift. It comes in mesh sizes XS-XL with an alpha layer.

Enjoy the rest of your day, even if you don’t have a special someone to celebrate with. 🙂

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

Serena has been sick as a dog for the past week, so she asked me to stop by and show you this awesome, mesh suit by .:pure:., which you can pick up at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The sale ends tomorrow, so don’t delay!

My hair is a free subscriber gift from ARGRACE. It comes in a huge fatpack of colors, and there’s also a similar style for women in the box. Finally, my wing tip shoes from GABRIEL have been shown several times here, but they’re a great staple for any SL man’s wardrobe. 🙂

Gavin Plays the Guitar

Blogging soon!

Ydea Style currently has this complete outfit out as a group gift for the fellas. The group is free to join, and includes the 2 shirts, pants, and shoes. There’s another fun thing in the box, which I’ll show you later in this post. 🙂 Oh, and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey Couture. There is one for either wrist – or both!

Blogging soon!

Three great freebies here: first, my skin is a free gift from ::Bite&Claw::. There is also a women’s gift in the box, which Serena showed here. My necklace is an older gift from RONSEM*, which was originally shown here by Love. It’s still available, so if you didn’t already pick it up, you still can! Finally, my eyes are a group gift from Madrid Solo Cosmetics. You need to join the group and check the notices to find the eyes… but they were posted a while ago, so don’t delay! There are also a couple of cosmetic gifts for both men and women available at the in-world store, so be sure to head over and scoop them up!

Remember when I said there was another fun thing in the Ydea box? Well, here it is! The outfit comes with this guitar prop, which, when you attach it, plays this lively guitar-playing animation. I decided that a still photo did not do the animation justice, so I decided to make this little piece of machinima. It’s my first attempt ever, and I know it’s pretty awful, but I think you get the idea. Oh, the guitar does not play music; I added it to the video. Enjoy! 😀

Marius in Mustard

Blogging soon

Hey fab readers! The Hawker’s House in-world group recently reached a milestone of 300 members, and as treat, owner Kaid Hawker sent out a special gift! I’m wearing the men’s gift (of course!) which includes the Mesh Chino Pants in Mustard, Mesh Marius Cardigan with Turtleneck in Gollanth, and Mesh Toe Boots in Black. An entire outfit for free! My skin is one of the Christmas gifts sent to members of the Belleza group; if you missed getting yours from the group notices, you can still pick them up in the store. My glasses by Karacter are a 1L gift on the Marketplace, and my ring is one of the amazing advent gifts given to members of the Chop Zuey group. As of this posting, you can still find them in the store. 🙂

Peace on Earth for the Fellas

Blogging soon!

There’s still plenty of time to pick up those Peace on Earth Hunt gifts (POE6)! Gavin’s jacket, shirt, and tie are the POE6 gifts from B&W Designs. Hopefully you can see the detailing in the leather because it looks pretty awesome! His hat and hair is the POE6 gift from ChiChickie!, which includes a HUD so you can change the hair color and hat texture.

Just a note about Gavin’s new skin: 7 Deadly s{K}ins has recently started making men’s skins, and has partially released a new line called Judas. The tone he’s wearing here has freckles, which I thought was rather unique for a men’s skin. Check ’em out if you’re looking for something different! 🙂

Peace on Earth for Women and Men

Gavin and I have been doing a little hunting in the Peace on Earth Hunt (POE6). Gavin is wearing the POE6 gift from 69 Park Avenue, which includes the jacket, pants, and scarf. The outfit is mesh, and I should caution you that only one size is included in the box. If you are a very muscular guy, you might need to adjust your shape a bit to make it fit. Gavin’s sneakers are a sale item from Mr.Bloch; 50L will get you a fatpack of colors, and the texturing is really nice on these. Another caution: there was no alpha layer in the box, so he added an alpha from another pair of sneakers, and all was good. 🙂 Gavin’s gloves are a free gift from ::GABRIEL::, available only at the Jewelry & Accessories Expo.

As for me, I’m wearing a lovely fur-trimmed coat from DG Designs, which is part of their gift for POE6. The gift also includes a pair of stockings and ankle boots, which I am not wearing here. Instead, I’m wearing a couple of items from  *~*HopScotch*~* that are available as part of Covert Affairs: The Main Event. The Snowy Stockings come in 8 different colors for both Slink feet or regular feet, and are available only at the event location. My boots are also part of The Main Event, and you can find them at the *~*HopScotch*~* main store. This color is exclusive to the event, and will never be sold again.

Blogging soon

My pretty skin is the POE6 gift from [ROCKBERRY]. It comes in 4 different tones, with and without cleavage. My jewelry is the POE6 gift from Ear Candy. Oh, and my hair is the beautiful, new subscriber gift from TRUTH HAIR, Fernanda, that Love showed you last week. Gavin is wearing Simon, the December men’s group gift skin from .::WoW Skins::. He’s also wearing the brand-new Spectral Eyes from IKON; included are regular and mesh eyes. Hurry on over to the main store and pick up the color he’s wearing as the December group gift! 😀

The Black Event: Fab-Fae for Men + Makeover Your Bod!

Blogging soon!

Hey Fab Readers! I’ve got some great freebies and deals for you fellas today. I’ll start with my comfy sweater, which you can pick up for only 10L from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event. Standard mesh sizes… you know the drill. While looking for a new pair of jeans, I stumbled across these terrific Mesh Jeans from Ducknipple. They were 195L… but before you get all mad at me, consider this: they come in 3 different styles – tight, normal, and bootcut, which I’m wearing here – and they are HUD-controlled with 8 different textures. You get 4 colors in both “clean” and “dirty” versions (that’s dirty with dirt on them… not an “adult” version, if that’s what you’re thinking!). And the texturing is awesome! So… if my math is right, that would be 24 different pairs of jeans… which works out to less than 9L per pair. Not a bad deal, if you ask me! 🙂

Need a new skin and/or shape? Then you DO NOT want to miss this amazing group gift from Mr.Bloch. This youthful Danny skin comes in 10 different tones, and includes a shape, which I’m wearing here. But don’t delay! I missed last month’s gift because I didn’t get to the store quickly enough, so go… NOW! Best part: the Mr.Bloch group is FREE to join! My eyes are a free gift from Mayfly, no group required. You can find them on the back wall under the “NEW Luminous Eyes” sign. Don’t forget to pick up the Dark Olive group gift eyes while you’re there. Finally, this shirt with the great camo texturing is another deal from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event.

What else do you need with your new skin, shape, and eyes? Hair, of course! You can pick up this cool 2-color hair from Uncleweb Studio (a.k.a. uw.st) by joining the free group at the front of the store. 5 different versions/colors are in the box. This is a 2012 group gift, but it’s still available, so get yours while you can. And you can dress your new bod in this Commando shirt from the Fab-Fae cart for just 10L.

There you go, guys. A whole new you! 🙂
