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.

College Survival 101

CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE!
CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE! Is the only way for a college student to survive. It’s the pick me up, the all nighters best friend, hangover cure, and just what the Doctor ordered. Man did I need my morning pick me up after a long night of partying. I had to find something to wear of course, before I go out, and grab my morning cup of Joe. I pulled on my grey Hawker’s House shorts, they smell clean enough. Then ravaged through my drawers, looked under the bed, was left with the only clean shirt I had. My loud awesome go to Boyberry summer party shirt. Then I slipped on my Ellison Coastal sandals from Rebellion as I grabbed my Vespa keys and went out the door.

Rode to the best place to get coffee near campus. Then your left deciding what to order of course. Hmm…Double Double, French Vanilla Cappuccino, The Gretzky, Chocolate Timbits Iced Capp, Doubleshot on Ice, White Mocha Frappuccino, Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte, or perhaps the Espresso Frappuccino. I went with just the simple Double Double for now. MMmmm…man did I need that. Nothing like that warm caffeine coursing through your veins to get you ready for a long day of classes. BTW if you like my outfit, the entire thing is free.

All three piece are from the Allstuff Hunt going on right now. Who can pass up on this wild Summer Shirt from Boyberry? These denim Bernuda Shorts from Hawker’s House is only part of their gift. It also includes an Ombre tank. Along with another outfit and sandals in the box. These Ellison sandals are just what a guy needs for the upcoming summer months. There is a long list of Menstuff Hunt gifts for the guys. All of the items are priced $0L or $1L. Not to worry cause this hunt includes ALL the stuff groups. Which are Womenstuff, Menstuff, Homestuff, Posestuff, and Kidstuff. There is something in this hunt for what ever it is you fancy here in Second Life. Just remember to grab yourself a cup of coffee, you’ll need it for all the hunting your gonna do on this hunt. Cheers!

There is Magic in the Air


There's Magic in the Air

There’s magic in the air this time of year. It’s when I feel most in my element. Having someone to share it with makes it even better! A recent free group gift at b[ELLE] is perfect for getting into the spirit of the season. It has a full outfit for the guys, and a cute dress with bat wings (not shown) for the ladies. The b[ELLE] group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. For more info on each of the outfits included in this spook-tacular gift just keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for full credits. Thanks for being here!

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Ladies Outfit

This halter style dress is every bit as cute on as it looks. I have to say I felt a little bit like Betty Rubble dressed in her Halloween frock. It comes in several sizes including sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s a color change hud as well with 3 color choices for the dress, and 3 similar color choices for the men’s shirt. Also included are an adorable pair of bat wings which I chose to not wear.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, large) + Alpha, eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Men’s Outfit

The men’s outfit part of the free gift includes the casual shirt and matching pants. I like the fact that the print is just on the front of the shirt. I think it keeps it from being too busy. It’s really perfect for the season. The same hud that is used for the dress also works for this shirt. The jeans and shirt come in several sizes, and there is an alpha layer for both so this outfit is suitable for classic avatars.

Shirt Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, medium, large) +Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt), Slink
Jean Sizes Included: Fitmesh + Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Nuts Inc.


Welcome to the Blog Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re ready for this edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This time we have the pleasure of sharing Nuts Inc. with you. This fun little shop has brightly colored fashion for men and women. Yep, you read that right, there’s menswear at Nuts Inc. along with ladieswear. As you enter the store you’ll find the clothing separated by women’s fashion on the left and men’s fashion on the right. The clothing styles range from casual wear to formal, and everything in between. I even spotted a ballgown or two. There is also a second floor at Nuts Inc. with a few seasonal and miscellaneous clothing items.

First however you’ll want to stop by the front desk. There you can find a group gift for guys and one for gals. The Nuts Inc. group has a one time join fee of 15 linden. In addition to the current group gifts, you’ll find a 70 linden promotional offer in the same area of the Nuts Inc. store. Just look for it on the wall opposite the desk. Right next to it you’ll spot the colorful Fab Free logo above the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free tag for this one. If you’re not already a member, you can join for free. As you explore the Nuts Inc. shop be sure to make it to the back of the store. It’s there you’ll find a kiosk with quite a few past group gifts still available. Finally, next to the past group gifts you can also get all the store information such as their Flickr and redeliveries. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?
