He Shoots, He Scores!

72715bball5b_001

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week, I decided to get more exercise, change some of my poor eating habits, and end up with a healthier version of me! Yeah…had you going there a minute, didn’t I? LOL! Seriously, my favorite find this week is a very good looking basketball uniform emblazoned with the words “New York” across the front. The hunt prize from the Boom Boom Pow Hunt, The Mensline Mesh Basketball Outfit from KAD Designs is great athletic wear even, if you aren’t a basketball fan. The jersey alone would fit well in an urban street wear outfit, but KAD Designs gives you much more than that! The hunt prize includes the entire uniform right down to the sneakers and socks. In you have no need of active wear, consider this: The outfit has some seriously fun role play potential in the right situations. The Boom Boom Pow hunt ends on the 31st of July, and this gift will set you back 1L. Hurry and grab it, it is a very nice gift.

72815Basketball Blk1

Staying with the basketball theme, earlier today I saw that IAF had set out a goodie bag for us guys with multiple freebies in it. Among the four items in the bag is this basketball jersey with the number “01” on it and with the name “Hustle” on the back. This happens to be perfect for me since “Hustle” happens to be my nickname around the office. (I sold Love’s stapler to Pru, then wrapped up Pru’s stapler as a gift to Love. I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky kids!) The Jersey is black with silverish gray numbers and accents and would look as great out on the street as it would on a basketball court. One last note, in this very generous FREE gift bag IAF also included some chinos, a sweater, and a wool jacket/shirt combo!

Lastly, my hair is a great FREE group gift from Amacci! Truly one of the best places for men’s hair on the grid, I was very pleased to hear they had put a male hair out recently and hurried over. The current FREE group gift is called “Leon” and comes in cinnamon. It is a nice length for guy hair; I call it medium length in my inventory and is a must pick up, since free hair for guys is such a tough find. I don’t know how long this will be out. So, like most of the end of the month items, it is best to run and grab it before it vanishes like the playoff dreams of a basketball team from a certain city that I will not specify.

That’s what I have for you this week. Whether you want to look good hanging out on the corner talking smack to your friends, playing a quick pick up game of basketball, or have an interesting idea for a role play in mind, these items should come in quite handy. Until next week my friends, take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Directionally Challenged

Snapshot_003Whew it’s been a long day for me, but I am here now logged into SL for some blogging/shopping therapy! Guess what ladies?! Gizza has a new free group gift for you at the landing point of the mainstore!  This month, Gizza has released the sizzling hot summer dress I am displaying today in a trendy turquoise and brown zig-zag pattern.  I don’t know if it is pointing up or down, but it looks great in my books!  As well as this new group gift for women, you will find a new gift for the guys, as well as a whole years worth of previous VIP treats.  As an added bonus, this group is free to join!

Gettin’ Casual with Around the Grid and Hair Fair.

Well, well..look at this. It’s Thursday already!! My week is going by so quickly, I almost missed it. LOL. Just kidding. I would never miss my Thursday blog post, especially with the goodies I have to show off today. I think you all will love them.

CasualFun

Let’s start with some Around the Grid 3 hunt prizes. First, let me refresh your memory of how this hunt works. At each location there are 2 hunt prizes, and both are the same. The catch is, 1 is set at L$25 and is placed right at the hunt sign, and the other is only L$1 and you have to actually hunt for it. So for those of you who get fed up with hunting…you can still get some great prizes for cheap! Love it! OK, my first hunt prize to tell you about, is my super casual, yet totally fun tank top and jeans from Wicked, called Nina. Both pieces are mesh, and in the standard sizes. I really love the detailing of the beads on the straps of the top (although I did not manage to get an up close picture of that…oops!), and the fit of these jeans…amazing! I just know I am going to get a lot of wear out of both of these pieces.

CasualFun3

I have 2 other Around the Grid hunt prizes to show off, and they nicely fit in the same picture! First is the Grind My Gears unisex bracelet and ring set. These came from Mesh Glam, and I really like the steampunk vibe they have, yet they do not look out of place with my casual look. Both pieces are resizable, so almost everyone will be able to wear them. Oh, and when SL was being…well, SL, I contacted Mesh Glam’s owner, βєνιn Яaνєηscℓaω, with my issue, and she helped me out right away! Big shout-out for great customer service :) The second prize in that picture is my cute flowery manicure. My SLink applier mani and pedi are courtesy of Reject. The colour combinations are so pretty, I had a hard time deciding which to use. In hind sight…I could have had a different colour for each finger! Dang, why didn’t I think of that before taking my pictures. Oh well…at least you all have this idea now!

There are lots of other great stores involved in this hunt, and if you’d like a preview of the other prizes, take a look at their blog HERE. Oh, and you have loads of time, as this hunt runs until September 30th.

CasualFun4

Next to show off, 2 more Hair Fair gifts! Man I love Hair Fair, especially when there are free gifts to be had. My lovely rigged mesh Catherine hairstyle is from a new to me store, Murray. This classic swept back and long hair comes in almost every colour imaginable, and I just love how it drapes down the back. Now, it did not come with a hairbase, and you don’t really need one, but I enjoy having that bit of extra hair around my hairline, so I almost always wear one. To get my look, I layered the black hairbase from elua’s Hair Fair gift on top of  a much darker Wasabi Pills black hairbase. I really like the effect.

CasualFun2

The other Hair Fair gift is one of the few non-hair related gifts available. This great, rustic looking mesh tote bag is the gift from sYs. It is rigged, but comes with 2 sizes for the straps, giving you a little more leeway with shirts that might be a little fuller in the chest area :) As soon as I put it on, I wanted to run down to a Farmer’s Market, or some place similar, and fill it up with fresh fruits and veggies. Seriously! I love when an item so easily paints a picture in my head.

Alrighty, I have one more thing to mention. Were you wondering about my pretty skin in all of my pictures? Well, wonder no more. It is this months group gift from WoW Skins, Stella. I am so in love with the ever so simple makeup on Stella, just a hint of pink to the lips. She comes in all skin tones, so no matter your preference, there is a tone for you. The gift is free for all group members, but there is a L$350 join fee. I should mention though, that while Stella alone is well worth this fee, there is also a box of a bajillion past group gifts right beside her. OK, maybe not a bajillion..but a whole lot! So that L$350, is a steal.

So, was I right? Are you all just ready to scamper off and grab all the goodies I’ve shown you? I know you are, how could you pass them up? LOL. So, I will let you all get to it, and take my leave. Until next Thursday, TTFN!

No Passport Needed

Hello again, FabFree Dear ones! I don’t know about y’all but I need a vacation! Taking eighty or so days to trapse around shopping at fabulous stores and collecting great prizes sounds like just the thing.

No Passport Needed

My first stop on the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt was at Nerdy Girl. I am absolutely in love with this dress! I spent a large part of my collage age years in Oklahoma and route 66 runs right through there. I have very fond memories of cruising the ‘mother road’ through the back country and stopping at funky little diners and dives along the way. The ‘Vintage Summer Road trip ‘ dress would have been the perfect get up to cruise around in! It comes in all the standard sizes and the little bow at the waist is optional.

I had to have hair that would ‘flow’ in the breeze as I drive so I stopped at Kokolores’ shop at the Hair Fair and picked up their free gift – Ash . It comes in a very nice variety of colors and is unisex. I’m thinking it would look tres smexy on some of you guys out there who rock the longer hair.

As my real life BH  ( That’s Beloved Husband ) will tell you: I never travel light. Poor guy is pulling out his hair trying to pack everything for our move as it is.  Annnyway, Park Place Home Decore has set out the sleek three piece luggage group for us as part of the Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt. It comes loaded with 22 poses for guys and gals. It’s just the thing to pack up your souvenirs from the trip!

The Hair Fair only lasts until July 26! That’s just a few more days, so if you need hair ( and who doesn’t??) go support the Wigs for Kids charity and grab some marvelous free gifts.

The Around the Grid in Eighty Days Hunt runs all the way till September 30th!

Totally Wigging Out At The Hair Fair!

72113trendy 3_001

The Hair Fair. Guys, unless you live in a cave (if you do, I am coming over to watch ESPN and drink beer) you know it’s a big deal on Second Life. All month there has been a traffic jam as avies crowded, pixel against pixel, to see what the best hair creators on Second Life had to show off, and what freebies they set out to lure us in. Well, now things have gotten a bit less crowded and the level of lag is much more comfortable, so it’s a great time for us guys to go have a look. Most of the free items available at Hair Fair are for female avies, but there are some male and unisex hairs offered plus a hat or two for you to discover. Finding quality male hair as a freebie is quite a challenge, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity like this if I were you.

My favorite men’s item I found at The Hair Fair this year is offered as a FREE gift from Exile @ Hair Fair. Part of the Jack And Jill Hair Fair Gift, Jack is a stylish modern cut with the top of the head covered by a mesh piece, and the sides and back covered by a hairbase. A unique aspect of this hairbase is that it is offered in 3 hues, and you may manually tint all three of them to get just the match you are looking for. On my avy, I resized the top mesh portion a bit smaller until I got the look I wanted. This is a fatpack and has tons of colors offered in a hud based system. Exile @ Hair Fair gives you everything you need to get it looking perfect for your avi. That’s extraordinary for a FREE men’s hair.

I, much like many guys on Second Life, wear black often. By often, I mean all the time and in every shade imaginable! That’s why I grinned ear to ear when I saw this denim shirt and jacket set from Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy! Yes, that is a bit of fuchsia, Fabbies, but no worries. It won’t bite. The Ewan SE- Fuchsia Black Jacket & T-Shirt is a brilliant bit of color while catering to our very masculine addiction to black. Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy offers this one-piece garment in five sizes for easy fitting. It is a 10L hunt prize on The Summer Hunt 2015. You are looking for a very small brightly colored star. This is a darned fine looking hunt prize, I hope you enjoy it.

Another fantastic FREE gift at The Hair Fair is this long hair offering from Asset @ Hair Fair! The Miracle Hair comes in a fatpack of colors and uses a hud system to change them. Also worth noting: it comes with a set of six head alphas to help make your head invisible under the hair. It is an interesting way to handle that, and I think I will probably be able to use the alphas on other outfits as well. So, it’s a great bonus feature! The hair itself is mesh and has a true rock and roll look! So much so, that once I had it on, I had to run out and buy a guitar! The fit on my head shape took a bit of fiddling to perfect, and I like to wear a hairbase as well, so I added one under it for a finishing touch. If you like long hair this is a must pick up!

I could have worn black leather, but I knew you would be expecting it now that I am a rock star. I decided to switch it up with a very nice FREE Group gift jacket from SZD Fashion. The Leather Jacket in Light Brown caught my eye not simply for the brown tones in it, but rather for the distinct olive tones. The overall texture appears dark but look closer. You will see the nicely balanced tones are very pleasing and give you a wide range of color options when matching it with your other clothes. Another surprising feature of this jacket is that you get it in two sizes of Fitmesh! I don’t have much Fitmesh yet, but this jacket fit me perfectly when I slipped it on. Kudos to SZD Fashion for making a great fit easy!

It has been quite a fun day, from the hustle and bustle of a very successful Hair Fair event, to getting so excited over a FREE hair that I bought a guitar and nearly went on tour! Oh! Time to start saving for a tour bus! Have fun everyone and since I rarely tell you this, then I should say it again: Thank you for letting me do what I love at a level I always aspired to. Take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Into the depths of the sea

Finally… the weekend! Hello again, FabFree Folks, I hope your weekend is going well in SL and RL. I hope you’re making time for some of the great new Hunts going on all over the grid. I plunged into the Atlantis Hunt this weekend and I found some lovely prizes to show you.

Into the depths of the seaFirst up, this is the ‘Claire Dress in Ocean’ from Wicked. This is a deceptively simple dress but it’s very sleek and elegant without being fussy or formal. I love the ombre dye look and the color is so lovely.  Even though the dress has a higher neckline, it makes the perfect back drop for the ‘Atlantis’ necklace from Never Ever. This is a unisex prize though it does come in two sizes for gals and guys.   Lastly, I’m wearing the ‘Atlantis – Silver’ for SLink nails from La Boheme. You get both the mani and pedi with both silver and gold accents. Atlantis Collage

There are thirty eight stops on the 0L Atlantis Hunt and there is a very nice variety of prizes for men, women and the home.  This Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay!
