Hit It to Win It

18-01-14

Daily Routine…

I’ve gotten back on track (after some medication interactions) and I’m back to my daily workout routine. When I get out of bed, I hop on the spinner. Unfortunately, I lose my workout buddy every time because her doggie hearing hates the beeping as I set the machine to the right setting. After my time on the bike, I get ready for work and arrive early to start part two of my workout. I meet a coworker who also had some health issues and we work out, sometimes together but mostly I usually walk/jog as he does weights and circuit training. The ultimate goal… to get fit and live a much healthier life.

Gym wear…

I’m wearing more FREE hunt gifts from the All ‘stuff Hunt. I found the Levant Shirt at Horr Menswear. The shirt comes fitted for the following body styles:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

The Taupe Sweat Shorts and Gray Athletic Shoes are the FREE All ‘stuff Hunt prize at Hawker House. the shorts come in the classic sizes XS-XL and the shoes can be resized for the perfect fit.  The All ‘stuff Hunt continues until the end of January.

Frosty

18-01-04

Cold as ice…

I’ve been in the deep freeze that has gripped most of the country this week and I’m feeling frosty. It’s so cold, it even turned my hair white. Hopefully, it will warm up to normal winter temperatures soon.

Three for all…

As I was unpacking all the loot I picked up on the All ‘stuff Hunt, I was making a mental note what could be matched up with what. I found three items that seemed to beg to be shown together. The FREE hunt prize at Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos is the Frost Argyle Sweater & Jeans. This outfit comes fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Temp
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

It also includes boots that I didn’t wear because I put on the Gray Athletic Shoes, part of the FREE hunt gift at Hawker’s House .  This also come with more in the package that I plan on showing at a later date. And rounding out the All ‘stuff Hunt gifts is the FREE Jonnas Scarf by FashionNatic. The scarf includes a HUD for several color choices.

Part of the permanent collection…

I accumulate so many items from blogging that every so often I have to purge the inventory. I do have a special section for items that I know I will use over and over. One such item is the Shizuki Cap with Hair, a FREE group gift from ARGRACE. Not only can I change the cap color to match my outfit, but I can also change my hair color to fit my mood, and today, my mood is… FROSTY.

Catching The Last Bus To Friday!

whc hh 1_002

January started the New Year with a bang and it is going to end in a flurry of great clothes hunting as the Menstuff hunt begins anew. It’s kind of like January came in like a lion and is going out like a slightly bigger lion! If that isn’t enough to put a smile on your face, then the free shoes round-up coming tomorrow surely will. January will go down as a great month to be a guy on SL.

Hawker’s House is a quality men’s clothing store, so it’s a shame I have not had the occasion to mention it much in my posts. They have made very nice clothing and deserve some special attention. When I popped by to pick up this month’s free group gift at the store, I was pleased to see it was the Men’s Mesh Dress Vest and Slacks – Gainsboro. Its light, informal look has the slightly-rumpled casual look which I love wearing. (In my real life, “casual” means I wear my tie looser and let my collar flap freely in the breeze. Put yo’ hood up, Orange County!) The Gainsboro consists of a white shirt, a black tie and the matching vest and slacks. Each of the items are separate pieces of Mesh and come in five sizes to make fitting easier. The textures are well done and the complete outfit is quite stylish. Hawker’s House‘s group joiner is free, so pick this up and give it a try. I bet you will like it as much as I do!

The eyes I chose to wear with this outfit are a prize from The Fresh Start hunt. Inkheart is offering this attractive light green pair of eyes called the Reverie Eyes in Hope as their hunt prize. They look great with the light gray in the vest and slacks! The hunt object you are looking for is a yellow star. When you are in the store, tap the hunt poster for a hint as to where you might find it.

That’s it for today, but we have an action-packed couple of weeks coming up for people interested in high-quality, low-cost men’s apparel. I am extremely excited and can’t wait to share with you what I find! Until then, have fun and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Happy Free Hair Day Gentlemen! Hopefully, by this time next year this will be a national holiday, like Groundhog Day or Bring Your Weevil to Work Day. Given the task to scour the grid and round up some free men’s hairstyles, I am happy to present to you the results of my epic quest.

That about wraps it up for this post, but before I go, let me tell you about two more great stops that guys should make in their ongoing search for men’s hair. One fine resource for men’s hairstyles is Alli & Ali. They have free group gifts and frequently take part in gridwide hunts. If you are looking for free hair, they are definitely worth a visit. Lastly, while they are not offering any free male hair, Truth is an excellent hair store and, as of this writing, their male hair is only 50L. For that price, they are a bargain. That’s all for me, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Additionally, you’ll find that many of the designers have set out FREE gifts as part of the event. Some gifts do require the SWANK group tag, but not to worry, the group is also FREE to join. While spending this cool autumn afternoon shopping, I picked up a few things at SWANK myself. A favorite of which is this blazer and shirt combo from Hawker’s House.

This classic casual combination of a jacket and t-shirt is a FREE gift from Hawker’s House at SWANK. There’s no group tag needed for this one, just pick it up at the event. This gift is fully mesh, has matching alphas, and comes in standard sizing. Not to mention the fun sugar skull image is perfect for the season.

Staying Cool With Menstuff!

whc gabriel ms 061615

Happy Wednesday everyone! This June has been fantastic for male freebie and cheapie-hunters! This week, I bring you more items from the Menstuff Hunt, a one hundred store hunt that runs until the end of June. Hunt prizes are at most 1L, but the majority of them are offered for FREE! There is no reason not to roll your sleeves up and get hunting, the prizes are too good to pass up!

Gabriel, a store with a reputation for generous FREE group gifts, created this beautiful floral print shirt for the Menstuff Hunt. The Mesh Gradation Flower shirt comes in two colors: blue and black. The floral pattern appears in the bottom quarter of the shirt and sleeves for a subtle, summery look without making the shirt look feminine. The lighter color in the upper part of the shirt draws the eye to the chest area where the shirt is unbuttoned and open. This shirt will give you a cool, stylish, laid back look in whichever color you choose to wear. Gabriel’s FREE Menstuff Hunt gift is a great choice to wear around the grid this summer.

To complement the shirt, I chose the Men’s Mesh Kanto Chino Jeans from Hawker’s House. Sporting extremely well-done shading and texturing, these gray jeans look realistic and provide a very manly look, if you know what I mean. There is no reason we should go around looking like Ken dolls, so it’s always nice to see a little shading to give us guys a little added dimension. Hawker’s House’s hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt is one of the most generous gifts in the entire hunt. For 1L, you get these swell mesh jeans, the blue denim boots I am wearing and a red nyc T-Shirt (not pictured). The Men’s Mesh Doc Martin Style Boots in Denim are very nicely textured and likely to stand out more than simple black or brown leather Doc Martin style boots. There is something you should be aware of when you get this excellent hunt gift. I have noticed from personal experience that automatic unpacking scripts occasionally don’t transfer the alpha to inventory along with the other items (if the alpha is no copy). In order to unpack this gift, I strongly recommend rezzing the box on the ground and manually unpacking it instead of clicking the box as instructed. This way, you will have everything you need to enjoy these fantastic boots. Quality, inexpensive footwear for men is not an easy find on Second Life, and for only 1L these boots from Hawker’s House are of high enough quality to deserve a very close look! Plus, you get the Kanto Chino Jeans as well!

My necklace is part of the Menstuff Hunt prize from Timeless Designs. The Rebel Black Agate Rope Necklace and Bracelet are both included in the Menstuff Hunt gift. I really liked the simple, masculine look of these pieces. If you look closely, you can see the braiding of the rope and the designs on the gray beads. Great care and time was obviously invested in creating these products. This hunt gift will only set you back 1L, and Timeless Designs made sure it was money well spent. I know I will enjoy it and hope that some of you will as well.

When I first saw this T-Shirt, I knew I had to blog it. The Fetthunterblack T-Shirt from Fliped Out Designs is a great item for the Sci-fi geek nestled inside all of us. Inspired by the universe’s favorite bounty hunter, the T-Shirt is designed with a large playing card like image with the word “Hunter” in the middle of it. At least I hope it is playing card like. If it was a tarot card I would be packing my bags right now instead of writing this. No reason to take any chances concerning my own fate. This unique graphic tee is the FREE Menstuff Hunt Gift from Fliped Out Designs and is available like the rest of the hunt prizes until the end of June.

These black boots were a super find over at The Grey Goose. The Black A** Kickers turned out to be just what I needed to complete this outfit. They have a detailed leather texture and silver metal fasteners, one zipper and three skull buckles. Originally, I had mixed feelings about highlighting them because they are not resizable at least by any method I am aware of. On the shapes I regularly use, the fit was imperfect. Of course, in these days of mesh, it is not unusual to have to adjust your shape to wear something. So, that was not enough reason to discard a perfectly nice pair of FREE black leather boots, especially considering you can pick them up and make your own decisions. Personally, I kept them! 😉

Some readers might have noticed I am wearing a different skin than usual. STALKERS! The Menstuff Hunt skin from Seven Deadly Skins is very nice, easily passing my very picky standards, and absolutely no surprise to me. Although it is good enough for any male avy to wear, it is an incredible pick up for any new residents or alts out there. There is no reason to look new when you can find a skin this nice for FREE! Thank you for such a nice hunt gift.

Lastly, I want to point out one item that is NOT part of the Menstuff Hunt. Rather, it is an entirely FREE gift for a limited time from Poetic Colors. The Summer Sky Eyes – Beach Nighteyes are a beautiful blue with some pink and lavender mixed in. Click on my pictures above to get into my flickr, then click once more to magnify the image for an up-close look at these eyes. They are only available for a limited time, so if you like them, run over and pick these up as soon as you can.

That’s it for this week. Although I have highlighted over twenty items from the Menstuff Hunt this month, there are one hundred stores participating. So, try as I might, I have only scratched the surface of this wonderful hunt. I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the For Him Hunt is still going on, but ends on the nineteenth of this month. So, if you want to pick up a really sexy workout outfit blogged here, this is your last chance. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by WHC Riler – The Poetry Of Winter.

Guest blog by WHC Riler – Originally  posted [HERE]

Winter has fallen and flakes of snow drift lazily to the ground in the cold, dense air. Around all of us is the romance of the holidays and the joy of seeing the warm smiles of distant loved ones once again. Memories resurface of cuddling on a park bench with a lover as the snow falls, kissing their nose and sharing an intimate laugh. The joyful noise of the young fill the days with excitement and wonder. Winter can be a romantic time of the year, and within it there is poetry around all of us. Sadly, it is completely ruined by the lousy weather. The best thing about winter is sending my friends to miserably cold places to get even for trips to the beach I didn’t get invited to. Riot Bayn can tell you all about that when his teeth stop chattering. The Megastuff 2 Hunt is going on right now. It consists of the Menstuff, Womenstuff and Homestuff hunts, all running at the same time. They are on until January 2nd and are generally excellent hunts. Riot is wearing the Stephen Steel Grey Jacket – the Menstuff Hunt gift from JFM (Jana’s For Men). The garment is a well made, warm looking MESH jacket perfect for these winter months and JFM was very thoughtful in including a FITMESH version in the package as well. It is a well done garment and deserves some extra love from us hunters. Riot is also wearing another Menstuff Hunt gift in this post, the prize from HAWKER’S HOUSE. Their gift includes the very nice black turtleneck and chino slacks in black. The sweater is nicely textured and is a system (in layers) garment which makes it fantastic to go under mesh coats and jackets. It is a great thing to have in inventory for that reason alone. If that wasn’t enough of a reason to pick up the Hawker’s House Menstuff Hunt prize, here is another one: the MESH black chino slacks Riot are wearing is also part of the same gift! The Menstuff hunt is ending soon, January 2nd so, if you want in on these items, you will have to run there. The hunt objects are small blue T-shirts and cost 1L each. At Hawker’s House you are only looking for one hunt item, both the chinos and turtleneck are in that box! Lastly, since the hunt is nearly over as I post this I wanted to post the Menstuff blog where you can find pictures of other gifts offered. It is fairly well covered already so I am just hitting the highlights that I feel need extra attention. Until we cross paths again my friends, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Festive Festivus to all of you. I hope you find a great deal of joy and love over the holidays wherever they take you. —–WHC Riler

I <3 NY, and I Got Milk!

Blogging soon!

Oh my goodness, how is it Friday already?! It seems like this week has just flown by… probably because I’ve been stuck at home with a sick kid… but enough about that! This cute outfit, which includes leggings, sweater, and boots, is the generous Womenstuff Hunt gift from Hawker’s House. The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31, and there are some truly fabulous gifts available from 200 amazing designers, all for only 1L each. Some designers are even offering exclusive items which you will only be able to find during the hunt. Trust me, this is one hunt you DO NOT want to miss! 🙂

ws_hawkers_fleur2blush_hands_001f

This cute updo is a group gift from *Milk* Hair. The group is free to join, and let me just say this: FAT PACK. That’s right, the gift comes in just about every color imaginable! So run… ok, tp… to Milk as fast as you can before you miss this fantastic gift! My fun ring and earrings are Marketplace gifts from .Olive. There is also a bracelet, but I figured it would just hide under my sleeve, so I’m not wearing it (but I did pick it up!). Called Maybe They’re Real, I can’t tell if they look like rocks or some type of reptile skin, but they’re cute – and unusual! – just the same. They also come in a dark gray color with red stones.

Need nails? I thought these appliers from .::Ceiling::. were fun, and they’re only 1L on the Marketplace! Appliers for your toesies are also included. 😀

Blogging soon!

My skin is the lovely Fleur, an new release from Bite & Claw for The Skin Fair. She will be released in the usual B&C 5 tones, but I’m only showing a preview of tones 2 (light) and 4 (dark). I’m typically a fair-skinned girl, but I have to say that tone 4 is really nicely done. There are several make-ups and the usually appliers available for this skin. FWIW, The Skin Fair opened today (March 14), and I’ve been trying to get in all day today with no success. It runs until March 30, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for us all to pay a visit!
