Promise of Spring

Promise of Spring

 

Out like a lamb…

As we head into the last week of March, the weather in my part of the world is beginning to show signs that spring has finally arrived. We decided to take a walk (without the dogs in tow, they had their walk earlier today) to look at some of our newest additions to our ever growing menagerie of animals. While it is still cool outside, the sun is warm enough for us to shed our jackets and toss them over our shoulders…

The newest group gift at ::K:: is the Justin Accent Jean Jacket for both him and her. Either sex can choose to wear either the pink or the grayish blue jacket as a nice accessory piece. I am also wearing a gift from The Menstuff Lounge. Black Label Menswear has made a gift of the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers.  The gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are free but to join the group it will cost a one time fee of $50L.

Oh look, the lambs are kissing…. 🙂

One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

Looking for a match…

I’m still looking for my perfect match…. I’m of course talking about a mesh head to call my very own. I search, I try the demo, I add skin appliers … and I’m still searching. Someday I will get my very own head… someday….

I found today’s outfit at the Menstuff Lounge. PowerDesign has put on the board  the Rick Outfit as a free group gift. The three piece outfit comes with a cruiser jacket with shirt and tie, jeans and oxford shoes. There is a one time $50L joining fee for the Menstuff group, but with the amount of gifts on the wall, how could you pass it up.

And so my quest continues…

Precious Things

Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

Grab it while it’s free…

Dropping a quick post out for you all with some information you may enjoy.  The Resun group is currently FREE to join. I remember stopping by there a few times after seeing  items on the feeds (yes, I do look at the feeds from time to time) but never picking anything up because the group fee was too pricey for my wallet. But have no fear, right now you can join for FREE and pick up the latest group gift, the Martin Slim Shirt. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL and also comes with a texture change HUD to get just the right color. Things like this only happen once in a blue moon…

Getting ready

The need to unwind

It’s been a pretty busy couple of days for me out in the real world (the kind that leaves you feeling as if you’ve been trampled on by a small herd of elephants). While all of this stampeding activity is far from over I thought I’d take advantage of a lucky little lull to sneak onto SL for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Seeing how it’s St Patrick’s Day, a green outfit was in order and happily enough Baby Monkey’s new free group gift, Else, was just the dress for this occasion. This quarter sleeved, collared shirt dress has a chic retro vibe to it that’s accentuated by the pretty bowed belt at its waist. The cherry blossom print of the Else dress not only adds a dash of sweetness to the outfit but a lovely contrasting white as well. What I adore most about this new group gift, however, is its versatility. You’re able to wear the blouse and skirt components as one single outfit or wear them individually to mix and match with other pieces of clothing in your inventory. The gift package includes a hud which lets you switch up between two different colors (warm green and bright blue) for the blouse, skirt, and belt, opening up more combinations for you to play around with. Sizes include:

Blouse:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Skirt:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis
  • Maitreya

Dress:

  • 1 Fitmesh size with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya

The Baby Monkey Group costs 20L to join and to add the Else dress to your collection you’ll just have to pay the vendor 1L before getting an instant refund. Use that dollar to snap up the other current group gifts at the store as well (past group gifts cost 10L each).

Getting ready

Accessorize

Speaking of eye-catching colors, the Aishas set from Legendarie certainly fits the bill very well. These lovely fuschia heels and matching clutch bag are a free gift for everyone, meaning that you don’t have to use up group slots or tap any sub-o machines to get your hands on them. There was no way I could pass up on these flirty strappy slingbacks (only made for Slink high feet, however) and the fact that there’s a matching clutch thrown into the mix just sweetens up the pot. There are two different versions of the clutch bag included in the gift package, one worn on your avatar’s hand and the other worn higher. You’re able to move, rotate and stretch the clutch and permissions are set to copy so do make backups before editing. I’m not sure how long this pretty gift will be out for so get it ASAP.  Legendarie is a generous store that set out free gifts fairly regularly so I would recommend putting it on your ‘must watch’ list. Though there’s a 99L group join fee there are tons of past gifts to pick up at the store.

Hairstyles

One of these days I’ll stop writing about the Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round but that day clearly isn’t today. There are so many great free gifts by awesome designers and I was really excited to discover that there’s not one but two hairstyles that you can snap up at the event at no cost at all. The Ullrika hairstyle from EMO-tions is a great messy updo that allows you to just toe the line when looking for something elegant by not too formal. The pretty braided details of the Ullrika hairstyle are a very nice touch as well. In the gift package, you’ll receive

  • Two versions of the Ullrika hairstyle, one for larger chests
  • Huds for the Black/White, Blondes, Brunettes, Reds and Pastels palette colors. Each hud contains eight tones and a resize script
  • Fatpack of tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Hairbase appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and mesh heads using the Omega system.
  • Hair alpha layer

The Liaison Collaborative’s birthday round is running until the end of the month so go and snap up your gifts if you haven’t already.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got my keys right here and I’m pretty sure I haven’t left the stove on. Time to hit the grid and take a peek at those Fifty Linden Friday offers. Happy St Patrick’s Day! I’ll catch you guys later!

The Wearing of the Green

St Paddy

Kiss me, I’m Irish…

As I was putting on my Kiss Me, I’m Irish shirt, she shot me a disapproving look and was asked a one word question… “REALLY?” … So, it was back to the closet to find another green shirt. I found the Celtic Shamrock Tee by 7Tees that I bought on the Marketplace for just $75L. It’s not my fault she’s busy and can’t join me at the pub. All work and no play, yada yada yada… I slipped into my Shamrock Shoes, the FREE March group gift from Prey. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and I was out the door.

Dance an Irish Jig…

To get me in the mood for all this Irish revelry, I slipped on my FREE Jiggery Blarney Hat I picked up at the Jinx booth when I visited the Vintage Gacha Fair. If you want to dance an Irish jig, this hat even plays a tune. I saunter up to the bar to order my first beer of the evening and notice that her trusty man servant Ribald is the bartender for the evening. Either it’s just a coincidence or she thinks I’m going to need a ride home after too many pints….

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁
