Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

It’s a Good Month.

Purple_001

It’s a good month…

April is a good month for men. You know why? We have the “For Him Hunt” just for us. I’ve already made a couple of stops and I have to say I’m pleased with the results of my findings. It’s like hunting down golden Easter eggs all April long… except the icon is a manly wrench. You can never have too many tools, I don’t care if you’re a guy or a gal.

I decided to show off this great shirt I picked up at Horr Menswear first, since the deep rich purple color and the fit are just superb. It’s a great casual shirt and goes great with a pair of jeans. It also comes in a large number of mesh body sizes to fit just about any of the mesh bodies out there. For just 1L this shirt is a steal of a deal. Hunt it down before April 21st when this hunt ends.

Shirt Mesh Sizes Available:

  • Classic XS – XL + Alpha
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Tending Bar_002

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!

Doing Time

Jailbird_001

Would you believe that all those treats at that little Cafe that Love mentioned weren’t free after all? Oh no. They expected a smile in return. A smile. They were selling those sweet goodies for a smile, and I just wasn’t in the giving mood, but I wanted the goods anyway so I took that brownie. That’s how I ended up with a lifetime sentence to this blog… at least the uniform is free.

Just an inmate now.

That’s right. Just an inmate now. Serving my time writing blog posts for FabFree because I wouldn’t give a smile for a brownie. But you can get my orange prison inmate uniform free too. Maybe for some roleplay. Maybe for some fun. Maybe for Halloween (it’s not too early to plan for October, never to early to plan for Halloween, I say). Just head down to the Dufaux main-store, join the group for free, and pick up this group gift. Be sure to make it through the metal detectors.

It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Aesthetic Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Maybe Love will let me off on good behavior… nah. I bet she gives me hard labor doing something like straightening photographs in the infohub 😉 At least I got a brownie out of the deal.

Pinball

Pinball_001

Remember when Pinball was all the rage? Maybe not if you’re young, it might just be “retro” to you. But I remember when Pinball was a big deal and scoring the new high score was THE THING.

Speaking of scoring

I scored a new shirt at Etham that you won’t want to miss out on. This great group gift is free with your free group join. Just don the group tag and pick up the gift. It includes a color change hud for the shirt as well. You can pick one of 12 colors for the shirt, and one of 5 colors for the zipper.

The shirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold!

Living in an Igloo

The Menstuff Hunt is coming to an end.

I didn’t want to get left out in the cold when it came to getting in on the goods with the Menstuff Hunt… after all, the hunt ends November 30th, but somehow I ended up sitting on ice in a simful of penguins. I blame Astrid’s sense of direction. At least the penguins are friendly and the view of the Northern Lights is spectacular. Come to think of it… I don’t have that much to complain about after all. The trip up here was actually worth it. The sim is called Lovea and this little icy haven is outside of a small art studio. It’s well worth visiting to snap a few photos.

I needed igloo appropriate clothes.

I figure this red vest is igloo appropriate right? It’s also a FREE Menstuff Hunt gift from Birth and includes three different undershirt options. The shirt and vest are mesh and come separate so you can pick which shirt you will pair with the red vest. You get three choices of shirt: black, grey (pictured), and white. It comes in all the standard sizes and has its own alpha layer.

Living in an Igloo 2

It’ll put hair on ya.

I remember various relatives telling me when I was growing up that different foods or activities would “put hair on my chest.” Thankfully it doesn’t work that way… but finding the iconic blue Menstuff Hunt shirt at Nivaro will put hair on your face!

Find the FREE gift there and you’ll be getting a fatpack of their Natural and Eldorado beards.

The package includes system layers of:

  • The El Dorado  in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable
  • The Natural (shown) in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable

I think I’ll try to find a warmer locale for my next traveling venture… but we’ll see what Astrid has in mind. Till then, I have reading to do. Have a great afternoon!

Opening Doors

Doors

The Doors.

Astrid got this crazy idea that we are going to be adventuring… and Kathryn helped her out with a link to this Flickr Group where you can look at pictures of various sims. It’s required to post the slurl in the description, so you can be sure to find the destination if you want to check it out for yourself. One of the photos caught my eye, and I landed on Baja Bay.

The original photo had been of a beach house with seaguls…. but I ended up gravitating toward a set of doors on the beach. I’m reminded of a song by The Doors called “Land Ho.”

“Grandma loved a sailor, who sailed the frozen sea
Grandpa was that whaler and he took me on his knee
He said: “Son, I’m going crazy from livin’ on the land
Got to find my shipmates and walk on foreign sands”

Maybe that’s just the thing. I’ve been a little cooped up lately and I’m ready to open doors. These four got me as excited is Astrid about what lay ahead.

I haven’t forgotten the Freebies!

Every sailor needs a north star to guide their ship by… and as Astrid mentioned in her post [HERE], it was highly likely that I might be sharing the men’s gift from KiB Designs with you. The group is FREE to join and you can pick up this T-shirt FREE with your group tag.

The gift package from KiB Designs is actually a “family” package and includes this black T-shirt with the star print on it for everyone in the family… Mom, Dad, and kiddo. I’m wearing it in the male version. It comes in all the standard sizes with its own alpha layer. Ladies if you like it, you can pick it up FREE as well.

I’m off to wander the beach… the waves are still crashing and I think I see a few seashells. I feel the wanderlust creeping up on me. “Singing songs of shady sisters and old time liberty. Songs of love and songs of death and songs to set men free.” (The Doors)

Happy Wandering.

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:

Tip Your Hat to Style

Tip Your Hat to Style

I really have to tip my hat to the creators who are participating in the Menstuff Hunt. The prizes this round are outstanding as usual. I ran across a new-to-me designer – Hot Fuss – and was pleased to come away with two items – not only the hunt gift, but also a lucky letter chair gift.

The Hat.

If you stop by Hot Fuss, you’ll be able to pick up this men’s fedora as part of their contribution to the Menstuff Hunt. It’s an excellent design in a fedora style and yours for only 1L and a little hunting time. It’s sure to add class and style to most any outfit. I didn’t have any trouble adjusting it to fit my head, and it looked great over the top of my usual hairbase.

The Sweater.

While I was at Hot Fuss, I noticed they had out two lucky letter chairs. No group is required for either and they are completely FREE. One is for the ladies, but the other is for us menfolk. My letter came up while I was hunting down my hat and I was able to pick up this Tristan sweater in all the standard mesh sizes. It even includes a color change hud with three color choices. I’m showing you the fawn color, as that matched the hat, but it also included a really nice navy and a coal shades all in this traditional diamond print.

The cut, flow, and fit of the mesh shirt is excellent, and it would be well worth checking to see if your letter would come up. The chair was on a short timer, so your wait might not be too long.

Tip Your Hat to Style 2

The Necklace.

It never hurts to add a final touch to a classic outfit. I made a stop by etham to see what they had as their Menstuff Hunt prize and was pleased to discover a finely crafted Chainmail Cross as the gift. It is a FREE gift. Just find the iconic blue t-shirt and pay 0L and it is yours to add to your inventory.
