X Gon’ Give it to Ya

12-14-2017

♫  First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
Then we let it POP, GO LET IT GO  ♫

X-Factor…

That song had been stuck in my head for weeks after I saw Deadpool when it was released. I recently re-watched it when I picked up the DVD for cheap (it also had a digital copy, FTW!) and it’s back, thumping it’s beats in my brain once again… The current group gift at Lavarock Creations is the Headbanger Shirt. The long sleeved tee is fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • ExMachina
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

The shirt also includes a texture HUD for five different colors. I love the look of this shirt and will make a spot in my closet.

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Happy weekend, fabulous readers!

Oh my goodness, hasn’t this been an amazing week of shopping and gift-getting? Thank goodness SL offers an endless supply of 24-hour coffee shops so we can always find a caffeine pick-me-up to keep us going. 😆

The only thing I love more than December Advent calendars is December Advent calendars that don’t expire after one day! You know, sometimes Real Life happens, and you can’t get in-world one day so you end up missing out on a really amazing gift.

Well, today I bring you glad tidings of TWO stores that have Advent calendars with gifts you can pick up until Christmas!

Advent Adventures

PurpleMoon Creations has once again set out an Advent calendar with beautiful, high-quality gifts. I’m showing you three of them today.

First up is the gorgeous green Velvet Dress, which was the Advent gift for day #7. It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Fitmesh XXS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

But Mostly Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

The jewelry you see here were also Advent gifts from PurpleMoon. My necklace and earrings were the gifts for day #5, and the pretty snow globe ring was the gift for day #8. I don’t believe the ring is specifically for bento-enabled hands, but it seems to work fine with my Maitreya hands.

Another must-visit Advent calendar is the one at Hello Dave. Each day, there is a new, holiday-themed nail palette for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega-enabled (includes Belleza, Empire, and Vista) hands. I’m wearing the day #6 palette, which is white with delicate gold snowflakes.

To receive these – and more! – Advent gifts, you will need to join each store’s in-world group. But it’s a small price to pay for the fabulous gifts you will receive, not only at Christmas, but ALL YEAR LONG, as both stores are extremely generous with gifts. 😀

P.S. Just a note about my shoes by BREATHE: they are still available as a free gift at FaMESHed. But don’t look for them under the Christmas tree; you’ll find them next to one of the concierge tables outside the glass ring. These shoes come with a texture-change HUD and were originally shown in black by Love HERE last month.

Weekend Shuffle

12-03-2017

Doggie’s Day Out…

I’m out the door, off to run a few quick errands and pick up the pup from her day at the doggie spa. I swear her fur grows three times faster than my hair. I grabbed my new jacket to wear out and about. I found the FREE Men’s Woolen Coat at Get Jiggy! as part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. I swear this hunt just keeps getting better with each stop.  This stylish jacket (that I see me wearing quite often) comes in sizes XS-XL and one fitmesh style.  I better hurry off, Angel gets crankier than a certain someone I know if is she’s kept waiting. Toodles!

Shopping Tips for the Modern Male

11-28-2017

It’s a dirty job…

This time of year, it’s unavoidable. No matter how much of your Christmas shopping you accomplish online, there are just some things you have to go to the traditional brick and mortar stores to find. I’ve discovered a few tricks to make those times when you have to venture out a little less scary.

  1. Weekends are a no go…  We may have time away from our jobs on the weekends, but hitting the stores during them is a big NO, unless of course you like crowds, long lines and getting backed into by careless drivers of electric carts. If you must venture out on the weekend, go early, VERY early to avoid the crowds.
  2. Weekdays, a big yes… If you do have a day off during the week (holidays excluded), this is a a time when you can actually browse the merch and not get bruised and battered.
  3. Late evenings… Hit the shops an hour or so before closing. The later you go, the less people you will have to fight to get to the things you want.

Hopefully, these tips will spare you unwanted grief and unexpected trips to the emergency room.

Shopping in comfort…

That’s the most important thing, really. Wear comfortable clothing. The more comfortable you feel, the more relaxed you’ll be, even in the most harrowing of situations like when a child spills a slushie down your leg… Yes, it has happened…. My outfit today is both stylish and comfortable. I found the Male Shirt Jacket at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS as a FREE gift to members of the Third Life Group. The shirt jacket comes in 3 fitmesh sizes and standard sizes S-L and with and without the shirt underneath. The Third Life group has a one time 10L join fee. I picked up the Wasted” Skinny Jeans on one of the many group Lucky Boards at REBELLION. The jeans come with a texture HUD for four different denim colors. You need to be part of the Rebellion group to play, but joining is FREE. And I’m still wearing my new favorite, the Wagner Flat Cap, the FREE SLF&O group gift at Fe Style.

Don’t let the holiday shopping blues get you down…

Pumpkin Guarding

Pumpkin Guarding

 

Guarding the Last of the Harvest…

I’m not the only one that is enjoying my pumpkin patch this year.  My pumpkins have been slowly disappearing to the point I have to patrol the fields at night to protect what I have left. With Chomper and Bruiser to help, I think the last of the pumpkin crop will be safe.

My Nightmare…

My shirt is a new gift that can be found at The Menstuff Lounge. The My Nightmare T-shirt is  a gift by XK Designs and is FREE to group members. Pick up this gift and many more when you join the Menstuff Group for just 50L. The shirt is made for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • TMP

The scene, Halloween Pumpkin Guarding is a hunt gift that can be found on the Bump in the Night Hunt. This gift by Season of Wonders  can be your for just 1L if you find the hunt item, or can be purchased for 25L at the hunt sign.The dogs and the pumpkins give off an eerie orange glow with the right windlighting. Now back away from my pumpkins…. Chomper…  Bruiser… Attack!

Full Moon Fever

Full Moon Fever

Moonlight Feels Right…

There is something about the light of a full moon that just brings out… the animal in me. All I want to do is go out and run and hunt and howl at the moon. It must be in the genes. I’m not sure why I wake up the next morning all bloody, but I always feel like I had a good time…

A Howling Combination…

Today’s look are two FREE group gifts from CS Tattoo. Both the Bloody Polo Shirt and Spider Fade Shorts are FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. The shirt and pants come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic

Not a Walk in the Park

Not a Walk in the Park

Just a normal stroll….

I have mentioned previously that I’ve been taking daily walks to improve my fitness and get my 6 pack back after a summer of leisure. What I have failed to mentions is that most of my walks on my days off are at the nearby cemetery. I figured I could walk through it or lay down in it for a dirt nap. It isn’t nearly as spooky as the one behind me, nut then again, I don’t walk there after dark…

Run, Don’t Walk…

There are only a few days left in the month and until the end of the AHG Autumnal Hunt 2017This dollarbie hunt is for the Aesthetic Body, but some of the gifts look good on the other body types as well. Today’s look is the hunt gift found at !BBN! Bravura Boite Noir. The complete outfit, consisting of  the Aesthetic Sweater, Jeans and White Beige Loafers can be yours if you find the ear of corn hunt item.

Enjoy your evening stroll…. ewww… I feel like someone just walked over a grave… oh, that was just me…

Mr. Blue Skies

Blue Days

 

September Weather?

It’s late in the month and when I should be pulling out my henleys and packing away my shorts for the winter, but the temperature has not been cooperating. With the record breaking summer like weather, everything is dry and hoping for a cool breeze or at least some rain to quench the parched landscape. The only relief has been the blue skies and an early morning breeze I feel on my daily walks.

Those In Between Seasons Outfits…

With cooler temperatures just around the corner (hopefully), I was lucky enough to stumble across the latest group gift from It’s Gau. The blue Jhonneto Outfit comes with a jacket/tank combo and knee high jean shorts. The shoes are also included in the gift. Did I mention this gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join?

Down the rabbit hole…

This week I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole, attended a wild tea party and smoked a hookah with a caterpillar. I thought I’d show you some items I found before I get summoned for a round of croquet. I found three gifts at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS  that I’d like to share with you. First off, I found a gift for FitMesh Fanatics to celebrate 15K members.  The Male Shirt is comes in either v-neck or u-neck. The Fitmesh Fanatics group is FREE to join.

Off with his … Clogs?

The other two gifts come bundled in one box and for just 1L. Both the Male Shorts and the Green Male Clogs can be found in the Summer Hunt gift located somewhere in AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS. Any time I can find clogs to wear, I do just to annoy her. She says it is not fashionable to wear them, but I think they are comfy.

Ok, I’m out for a bit. Until next time…

Carson
