Nostalgia

Nostalgic

Have you ever been nostalgic for something? Like the smell of an old bookstore or the sights and sounds of a record store. It’d be great to be able to just snap your finger and be instantly transported into a record store straight outta the movies. Like Championship Vinyl from High Fidelity, Trax from Pretty in Pink, Polymer Records from This is Spinal Tap, Motormouth Maybelle’s in Hairspray, Chelsea Drugstore from A Clockwork Orange, or Empire Records of Empire Records. I think it would be awesome to visit Trax. When I grab the Men Only Hunt gift from Ascend and saw the way the Rick Open button Blazer looked. It gave me them Duckie vibes.

I came up with a Duckie inspired outfit, decked out a record store in 80’s vibes, and put on some Otis Redding. Before you know it I was singing
“All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna
Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Don’t be surprised, man
You got to squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave
You got to hold her, brother, something, man
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah, yeah”
and dancing around just like Duckie. You better dance your way over to Ascend and grab this Rick blazer soon. You only have eight more days before the Men Only Hunt ends. You’ll be looking for a PS controller and this hunt gift will set you back 10L. Pardon me while I dust off my vinyl and get back to dancing and listening to some tunes.

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.

Can’t Get My Ducks in a Row

Getting My Ducks in a Row

“Go for a bike ride,” she said. “The fresh air will be good for you,” she said.

She forgot to mention the ducks. They won’t quit following me, and I think one of them is pretty sure I’m its dad. :-/

But enough about my problems. On to the free stuff!

More Gifts for Men

L’Homme Magazine SL is celebrating its 4th anniversary this month, and 20 of SL’s top designers have set out gifts for members of the L’Homme Magazine Readers Group.

I’m wearing a couple of the gifts today:

  • My beard is the gift from Mister Razzor. The Luigi Facial Hair comes in black, grey, and a tintable version for Catwa mesh heads, and black and tintable versions for Omega-compatible heads.
  • Kalback set out a fatpack of Sweat Shorts as their gift. They fit Gianni and Jake mesh bodies and come with a HUD containing 8 different underwear patterns and 9 patterns for the pants.

There have been several anniversary parties going on this month so be sure to check the group notices for details.

Note: The bike is a prop and needs to be rezzed in order to be used.

I’m a MONSTER!

I'm a Monster!

Morning runs are all about comfort..

The past few morning have been a bit chillier than the summer like temperatures I was experiencing a week ago.  But the drop in degrees haven’t deterred me from my morning strolls. I just have to dress a bit differently. I’ve said goodbye to the shorts and t-shirts and hello to the pullovers and long pants. My workout look today comes by way of the Men Only Hunt 10. My KossKoff Crew Sweater is the hunt prize at Fe Style.  I found the Dana Dot Pants at *AGATA*, because comfort is the key factor in workout wear. I’m keeping my neck warm in the Fluffy Scarf, the MOH10 gift from ::K::.

Updated Gifts…

One of my all time favorite group gifts are the Vasiforms sneakers at Vale Koer . They have updated their group gift to the V-3 Trainers. Just like the previous group gift. These shoes come with a texture HUD that makes the color combinations virtually endless. I plan on getting a lot of mileage out of these shoes!

And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

Fall Ready

Fall Ready

With fall in full swing, I decided to update my fall wardrobe with some clothes for cooler weather… as well as go pumpkin patch hunting. I think I found both the perfect pumpkin as well as the perfect sweater.

My sweater is completely FREE courtesy of Breath and the Men Only Hunt. Just head over to Breath and hunt down that iconic beer symbol and buy it for 0L. It comes with it’s own alpha layer if you’re still using a system body. The sweater is one piece with hand warmers included and comes in all the standard mesh sizes for fitting.

This month sees the men of Second Life getting some much needed love. The Men Only Hunt is in full swing and with forty six stops it’s proving to be a great hunt for filling out the wardrobe.  I’ve chosen this black sweater and shirt one piece combination from Fe Style today. The ‘Rom Sweater’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and features two handy alpha layers. One for the sweater itself and one for the top, pants and shoes.   My stylish hat is also a hunt prize. This is the Jones hat from Flow. The hat is fully modifiable for a perfect fit. The new ink you see here is from Speakeasy. The ‘Conjuring’ Tattoo comes in both a fresh and a faded ink version on the system tattoo layer. The prize also includes appliers for The Mesh Project, Omega, SLink  Body and SLink hands.

Last but not least, my appropriately dramatic pose comes from the bar stool “Cold One” from !Bang.  The stool has two poses and has a 9 land impact. It is very nicely built and would look rather stylish in nearly anyone’s abode.

The Men Only Hunt runs until April 30th. Don’t miss it.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabriel St. James
