Summer’s Last Sunset

Summer's Last Sunset

A Sad Farewell…

As we say goodbye to summer (Goodbye summer, we will miss you.) and move into fall (Hi fall, how are you?), I reflect back on the summer of ’17. I’m glad it’s past but I am going to miss the warm days, the summer breeze,  and the sun setting later in the evening.

A Gift to be Happy About…

I’ve slipped out of my skin today and into a new FREE Mesh Avatar from ExMachina. If you are wanting to experiment with a mesh avatar or have a newbie friend, this would be a good starter for them. The best part, the group is FREE to join. I’m also wearing a pair of Swimsuit Shorts by !BBN! that is free to members of the Menstuff group. The group has a one time join fee of 50L but there are several gifts on the wall to make the lindens worth it.

♫ Though we gotta say goodbye, to the summer
Baby I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss  ♫

Ice Cream Man

Ice Cream Man

 

♫ I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
Oh my my, I’m your ice cream man, stop me when I’m passin’ by 
See now all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy ♫

Redecorating with 31 favors…

While I was on “leave”, It seems that Love redecorated the FabFree Info Hub. She added a quaint little ice cream bar on the side of the building. If I wasn’t on a diet (stupid doctors), I’d be eating the ice cream instead of serving it.

Basic Black(berry)…

Today’s outfit is a L’Homme Magazine group gift located at KIB Designs. The L’Homme Pants and Shirt Outfit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a very business or semi-formal look. I’m putting this outfit in my closet rotation.

Wait… fruit flavored ice cream is still fruit, right?

Weekend Warrior

Weekend Warrior

For Duty and Honor…

Here’s to the men and women that give of themselves one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer to keep us safe. Not only do they have regular jobs, but family as well. They sacrifice much and risk deployment, spending time away from their loved ones. Next time you see a weekend warrior, thank them for for their service and sacrifice.

Loud and Proud…

As I’ve said, I’m catching up on a summer’s worth of gifts. I headed out to Loud Rebel Designs and found the Ramon Outfit as one of the gifts on the wall. This outfit comes with a texture HUD for three looks in one. I chose the camo to match my boots. Group gifts at Loud Rebel Designs are free to members with a one time join fee of 50L.

Deploying Around the Grid…

And speaking of my boots. I was lucky enough to find the hot air balloon hunt item on the Around The Grid in 80 Days 5 Hunt at Firelight Creations & MAN STUFF. The Combat Boots  hunt gift cost just 1L to find and if you are not feeling the hunt, you can purchase the boots for 25L at the hint giver. And ladies, the boots also come in your size too. A great unisex gift. Another gift on the Around The Grid in 80 Days 5 Hunt is the Traveler Transport Vehicle which can be found at Hogs And Carts Wheels. This is a fully derivable vehicle and you can also ride at the machine gun turret if you choose. Again, you can find the hunt item for just 1L or pay the hint giver 25L and save the searching.  This hunt is winding down to it’s final weeks. Don’t let these gifts get away.

Hello Autumn

Hello Autumn

A Change is in the Air…

I have a love/hate relationship with Autumn. I love the changing colors, the crisp browns, golds and oranges of the season. I also love the smell of camp fires, (hard) apple cider, and the crisp air in the evenings. BUT, I hate that the days are getting shorter, (walking the black pup in the dark is no fun) the sky takes on a grayish hue, and the thought that winter is fast approaching.

Fall ‘Stuff…

I decided to take a taxi over to The Menstuff Lounge. They have remodeled since I last visited and have several new gifts on the wall. I decided on an outfit that was fitting of the season. I picked up the gift by Brocade Tiger, the Carlos Pants and Open Blazer. This set comes in two styles. solid (shown) or patterned. I paired it with the Menstuff gift by Just Imagine. With some adjustment I fit the Un Dos Stress Tank under the jacket for a nice Autumn look. All the gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are FREE to members but there is a one time join fee of 50L.

And if you are in the mood for some fall scenery, check out The Autumn Cafe. I’ll see you by the campfire.

Back on Campus

Back on Campus

 

Has it been a month already?

I can hardly believe I’ve been back to work for four weeks now. I’m settling into my new position (a promotion of sorts) and the campus is a flurry of activity. I can finally lean back and breathe a sigh of relief that I’m finding my groove.

Old or new? I’m not sure….

Being out of the blogging game for a few months has left me wondering if gifts are old news or new and fresh. So please bear with me as I find both old and new treasures. I stopped by Gizza Creations and found a L’Homme group gift that I didn’t have. The Malcolm Shirt is FREE to L’Homme members and the group is FREE to join. I then headed over to Resun Fashions as I had a few months of group gifts to collect. I was pleased to find the Mexico Jeans are the September group gift. I was even more pleased to learn that the group which normally costs 100L to join is currently FREE.

Two post from me in a week. WOW! a new record. lol

Catch ya next time….

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Hello, yeah it’s been awhile…

Summer has come and gone (and I’m glad this particular summer is over). I’m finally back to work in the nether realm called the real world, and the first few weeks were nothing short of exhausting. But I’m now hitting my stride and feel I can come back and blog a bit more regularly. Today’s look is the latest group gift from R2A Creations. This gift consisting of a dotted polo, denim shorts and blue sneakers comes fitted for most body types and also comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL . Also included is a headband (not shown). This gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

An extra long (smoke) break…

I purchased today’s pose just before my extended break and it was a surprise for me when I found it in my inventory. I had totally forgotten about it. Smoke Break is one of several poses that can be purchased for just $25L on one of the male pose displays at Double Take. I  am excited to be coming back with poses I have never used.

Until next time, true believers…

Man in Black

Man in Black

Black as Midnight

Hey there! I’m attempting a post to see how it goes. My recuperation has been nice, relaxing, and BORING! But unfortunately I’m returning to work in a couple weeks. So much for the life of leisure. <sigh>  I’ve been watching listening to way too much TV. One of my favorite new shows is Midnight, Texas. The church in the show reminded me of the church at The Last Forever. So here I am in my midnight best showing it off.

Today’s outfit is a free gift for the Third Life Group members at !BBN!. The Man in Black outfit consists of pants and a shirt, both in sizes XS-XL and also a fitted size for each. The Third Life Group does have a 10L join fee, but a small price for such a nice outfit. This outfit is going into my keeper closet, for sure!
Hopefully, I’ll see you soon!

‘Stuff This!

'Stuff This

Oh, Hey there!

I have been ordered to limit my screen time to allow myself to heal, so I’ll make this brief. (BRIEF, GET IT? LOL I kill myself sometimes) The ‘Stuff Lounge has a new look and there are new gifts awaiting one and all. One such gift is the Cobalt Boxers, a generous gift from House of Ruby. These boxers come in both Omega and Slink appliers Just have your MenStuff Tag on and pick up your gift for FREE! Not a group member? There is a one time join fee of 50L but the gifts throughout the year is well worth the price of admission. Now back to my life of rest and relaxation. Hope to see you all again soon!

Sailing


Sailing

 

If I could be anywhere…

I’d be on a boat with the wind in my face and the spray of the waves in my face. Nothing relaxes me more than a nice ride on the water. It seems lately I don’t do the things I really enjoy. I believe that is going to change!

Boat-wear on a cart…

I’m bringing you more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. Today I stopped at the Rispetto Designs cart and picked out the Trent Brown Nautical Mesh Shirt and Blake Dark Blue Mesh Shorts. Both the Shorts and shirt come in the calssic XS-XL sizes and the shirt also has three fitmesh sizes. I am once again wearing the 10L Double Happy Blue Canvas Chucks from the Poeme cart that I first showed [HERE].

Happy sailing to one and all this weekend!
