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…

Peace & More Mojitos

Snapshot_013
Hey there Fabulouses!

This is a short and sweet post today, but I wanted to make sure I stopped in to tell you about a couple of FabFree worthy items I found – one a dollarbie on marketplace and the other a fun group gift!

My Favourite Colour!!!

I feel like I have been showing a ton of swimwear lately, and well I guess it is the season, but I found another fabulous 2pc swimsuit called Scandal you should know about.  It’s in my favourite colour (blue!), and is so pretty with the ruffled top and strappy boycut bottoms.  This set is available for just 1L in the Dusti’s Odds n Ends Marketplace Store!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Werewolf

More Mojitos

I can’t believe that I am holding a mojito in my hand again so soon after my wild ride of a girls night with Pru [HERE] and then ugh [HERE], but the new Preocupada Bento Pose by Reel Poses that comes with the floatie and bevvie is the latest group gift, and inspired me to give it another go.  The group is just 30L to join.

PEACE!

Weekend Mojitos

Weekend Mojitos
Happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been in need of a little fun in the sun. Thankfully I was able to talk Love into another girls afternoon, complete with tasty mojitos. It really didn’t take much convincing! It was  good to spend the afternoon in great company and just enjoy a lazy summer day.

Weekend Mojitos

I love a good mojito. They always remind me of summer and tropical vacations. This fun friends pose is a FREE group gift from Reel Poses. The gift comes complete with no copy, transferable mojitos so you can share the fun. The pose itself can be manually adjusted. To get your copy of this pose from Reel Poses, just join the Reel Poses group and click the gift vendor. The Reel Poses group is 30 lindens to join, and there are a few lucky letter boards for group members also.

Pretty Tropical

I think Love looks gorgeous in this Hawaiian print dress from Entice. Perfect for summer, and enjoying mojitos, this dress is a FREE group gift you can pick up at the Entice entrance. The gift is a complete fatpack, so there are 3 color variations to enjoy. The Entice group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this lovely gift. If you’ve shopped the awesome gifts at Entice before, you’ll remember that you pay the vendor 1 linden and then that linden is instantly refunded.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh, TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, eBody, Fitmesh

It’s a Wrap

The cute wrap top Pru has on is a current group gift at Ben’s Beauty. This FREE group gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colors to choose from, along with a few fun patterns. I actually had a hard time choosing which color/pattern to wear! Probably the best part about this mesh top is the pretty lace panel in the back. The Ben’s Beauty group is FREE to join. Also, are two previous Ben’s Beauty group gifts still available. Kathryn showed one of the previous gifts in her post ” Where the Sky Touches the Sea“, while Astrid showed the other previous but still available gift in her post “Simply Pretty.”

Station Inspection

Station Inspection

The One Percent…

Most of the time is spent cleaning, inspecting, training and drilling for the one percent of the time when all my skills and knowledge must come into action. When I’m “on the job” lives depend on me. People look to me to protect their property from fire damage. Some need me to lead them to safety from a burning structure. Others depend me to pull them from a wrecked vehicle. My favorite job is rescuing cats from trees. But all these jobs are important. I am a firefighter.

Honoring the working class…

In honor of Worker’s Day, Brii Underground has set a new group gift out. The Fireman Style Costume is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join. The costume consists of the fireman’s jacket and pants, each in sizes  XS-XL. And finishing the look, the package also contains boots and a helmet.

Next time you see a firefighter, police officer, or any other civil servant, thank them for what they do!

King (and Queen) of the Jungle

Snapshot_0033

Queen Bee…

In my SL existence I feel like I’m the king of my jungle…. My 512 x 512 jungle….  it’s all mine, none the less. But the one thing I have learned is that I may be the king, but it’s the queen who rules the jungle. If she isn’t happy, no one is happy. My advice to all you guys out there… keep the queen happy!

Royal garb…

Today, with her help, we are showing off gifts from two groups. Hypnose has as a gift for their members, the matching King and Queen Shirts for him and her. There will be no doubt who is the royalty in these shirts. The group is free to join, however the gift requires you to pay 1L and get refunded 1L.

Since you asked…

Our couples pose is Since by Reel Poses.  The group gift is free to members but there is a 30L joining fee. This is the perfect pose to show off her best feature….  Dang! remember what I said about keeping the queen happy? I think I just messed up…

Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. 😎

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ❤

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame). 😳

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. 😀

Life is a Highway

On the road again...

I Can’t Drive 55

I finally had enough of the cold and snow and decided to take a drive in my new car.

I hadn’t been out driving on the Mainland roads for quite a while, and let me tell you, it is not for the faint-hearted. In one trip, I saw everything from the ridiculous to the… well, more ridiculous. I passed a WWII-era airbase floating several meters off the ground, a seriously overcrowded breedables farm, a “Kittycat Whorehouse” (for humans? cats? humans dressed as cats?), and a giant baby with Donald Trump’s head holding the Scales of Justice. I have no idea what that last one was all about, but somebody is clearly trying to send a message, LOL! 😯

If you’re looking for somewhere to drive, be sure to check out the Second Life Road Network Directory for maps and suggested routes. I did most of my driving on Routes 8 and 9, and there are plenty of Rez Zones (places to rez your vehicle) along the way.

Unfortunately, sim crossings still take much of the fun out of driving; once you finally get going, you’re tossed up into the air, underground, or into the water, before jarringly arriving on the road on the other side. Another hazard to watch out for is accidentally driving onto private land with super-speedy-object-return and having your vehicle zapped out from under you. DOH!

Be careful out there, folks!

Little Deuce Coup

I stopped for gas – and a quick selfie – on this lovely sim called West of the Rain. It’s not a large sim, but it’s extremely detailed and worth a visit!

My look was inspired by this fabulous leather jacket, which is the latest free group gift from BUENO. You can wear the jacket with or without the little shirt that says “Naughty is the New Nice” (which I think may be my mantra for 2017), and it comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies, as well as a “fitted” version.

I added the free Absence of Fear jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich (previously blogged by Love and Pru), and the Lacey Choker dollarbie gift from CHAIN. The choker is resizable and comes in both black and white (changeable via HUD).

SIDE NOTE: Since there was no Maitreya version included in the BUENO gift, I decided to switch over to my Slink Physique body. I had heard that Slink recently updated their mesh bodies, so I popped over to the store to pick up the new version. To be honest, I hadn’t worn my Slink body in a very long time because the HUD made me crazy, and I didn’t feel that there were enough alpha cuts, making the body difficult to wear with many designs. But I am happy to report that the updated body has many more alpha cuts, and the new HUD is split up into sections, no longer cramming everything onto one, crowded screen. If you own a Slink body, be sure to head over to a redelivery terminal at the in-world store to pick up the updated version. 🙂

 

On the road again...

Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Shoot, there’s my phone again. Probably Carson needing a ride. I’ll just let it go to voicemail.

I’ve been having such a blast driving my new Bentley Supersport! I picked it up as a free group gift at Sydney City, and I have to say that it is really well done, not to mention FUN!

Both doors and the trunk open and close, the headlights turn on and off, and the dashboard is nicely detailed. The engine makes a cool vroom vroom sound, the exhaust you see in the photo was not photoshopped, but actually comes out of the car when you drive! There are a ton of other options that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet, so be sure to click on the car to get the full menu. Note that the car weighs in at a hefty 69 LI, so you may not want to park it or use it as decor unless you have plenty of available land capacity.

My apologies to the lady people I ran over, and thank goodness the bus that hit me sustained more damage than I did. 😉

BTW, I’m pretty sure that Soylent Green is people.

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

Bermuda

Bermuda

Astrid already posted, but I decided to sneak in a post today too. I wanted to show you a couple of June gifts that are out. One is just for us men… the other is Unisex, so you ladies can win out on it too.

Swim season is well underway, and all the gals have been showing you some great swimwear. Thankfully, American Bazaar has not forgotten the menfolk. Right now if you stop by the main-store, you can pick up this pair of FREE Beachy Bermuda shorts in all the standard sizes as the current group gift, and the group is FREE to join. The fit and cut are excellent… and I’m fond of the blue color and texture.

A while back, I showed you some spot on tattoos from Suicide Gurls. If you happened to join up and still have your tag (it’s a one time fee of 150L) then you’ll want to pick up the unisex June gift I am showing you in the picture above called Valdis. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP. It also offers the tattoo in fresh, faded, and soft layers. If you’re hesitant about the 150L group fee, remember… you’ll have access to group gifts for the last 6 months.

No Harm Done

No Harm Done

I decided to go shirtless for a cause today… to show off some excellent group gifts. If you’re a fan of high quality tattoos in Second Life, you know that finding good ink with all the proper layers at a reasonable cost can sometimes be a challenge. I ran into a new-to-me store that is offering group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

If you stop by Suicide Gurls main-store, you can join the group for 150L. This will give you access to a total of five group gifts, as the monthly group gifts for January through May are all set out for customers to enjoy. Each of these tattoos are unisex and come in a full range of appliers, including Omega, Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as a system layer for system avatars. So your one time fee for the group join pays for itself easily right away. I’m showing you the April gift called “Dagni” in the photo above. The gifts vary widely each month in style… but one thing doesn’t vary… quality. They are all top quality tattoos.

To add to my rugged look, I picked up the FREE L’Homme Magazine Group Gift being offered by No.Match at their mainstore. This group is FREE to join and means you’ll have access to numerous FREE gifts for men at a variety of stores all over the grid. No.Match is generously offering this chin goatie called “No Harm”. I thought it fit the feel of today’s look.
