The Fisherman

The Fisherman

Ah… what a beautiful morning for some fishing on the lake. So far, I haven’t caught anything, but I’m not ready to go home yet. Good thing I brought my lunch. Anyway, my fishing gear today consists of these great cargo pants and skullie shirt by Ruca Tease for the Color Explosion Hunt. Care and Love have already shown you a few ladies items from this hunt, but there are also men’s prizes to be found. The hunt runs until May 31st, and all prizes are free. More info on the official blog.

My hat is a MENstuff gift from JfL, bracelet is a group gift from Ronsem, and my earring is a group gift from ::GABRIEL::. These unisex sneakers were just 10L at Duh! and come with both black and white versions in the box. However, if you’re a new resident under 30 days old, you can pick up a free pair at the front desk of the in-world store.

At the rate I’m going, we won’t be having fish for dinner tonight. 😦

Tipping My Hat, Its St. Patricks Day

St. Patricks Day

I have a four leaf clover and a pot of gold on my hat, hopefully with luck on my side, a 6’7 handome leprechaun will find me. In the meantime while I wait, how about I tell you about my outfit. This mesh St. Paddy’s day hat by Ruca Tease, is the hat of all hats, and its a freebie that you can find on marketplace. The detail on it is a amazing, I’m still trying to figure out how to cash in that pot of gold for a pot of lindens! Also, there is a little surprise when you touch the hat while wearing it, I won’t tell you what it is, because I think it is something you should see for yourself. BUT I will say that the surprise is hilarious!  Oh, and with the hat, you also get some whiskey. *Be sure to watch out for that third sip*

St. Patricks Day

Of course, to match the hat, I had to find a green dress. This wasn’t a hard task, since JAVA Fashion Designs sent out a dress in their notices, but if you aren’t in the group, you can find it in the store for 10L. This little piece is a one shoulder mesh dress, that stops just above the knee.

I hope you enjoy these finds, Happy St. Patricks Day!!!

Snapshot_003I am still wading my way through my With Love Hunt prizes folder and came across a really adorable meshWool Cat Sweater from Mijn, which is only one of the two With Love Hunt Prizes you can pick up there.   The other prize is the same sweater in a different print.  Renee showed these comfy Patchy Cotton Leggings previously in a Paradisis Post, but it went so well with this sweater I needed to show them too.  They are the With Love Hunt prize from Gawk!  I have shown many of the WLH prizes, but just in case you need a reminder, the cost for each prize is 10L and the hunt icon you are searching for is a black gift box with red ribbon.

Love these mesh boots?  MEEEE TOOOO  and in fact I picked them up in three colours (red, tan & black) because.. they are only 70L at The Dressing Room!!  These are Slink’s Vanity Boots and they are beautifully textured with a wedge heel and a side zipper.  The handbag I am holding, is not just any handbag.  You can find the I Want Candy Mesh Bag at Ruca Tease for 175L and while it is a great looking bag, it also gives out candy!  You can click on it, or others can click on it, and it gives out sweet treats 🙂

Snapshot_005

It’s not very often I stray from my light shades of hair, but there was no question when I put on Mirror Enigma’s Socordia V2 skin featured at Structure Your Skin Project this month, and realized it was well worth the temporary change of my normal blonde thing I have going on.  A really gorgeous skin for just 99L.  It comes with a few shapes, french nail gloves, hair base and cleavage options as well as a couple pairs of eyes.  I am not showing the eyes because…  IT IS TIME FOR IKON‘s monthly group gift!!  Available until Monday evening, only for group members (free to join) is a stunning pair of Eternal Eyes in the colour Peak.

Wondering what’s in my hand?
Snapshot_002ffd

 I am holding in my hand, the Seeing PolkaDots Friendship Rings from Chop Zuey which is a gift for Fabulously Free – no need to join a group and there is a matching bracelet too!  These rings are transfer, which means you can keep one for yourself, and give the other away to a friend.  If you are short on lindens this holiday season, this is a great gift for someone special on your list, whether it be a man or a woman.

I <3 Fashion

Snapshot_001fdfdHave you checked out the I ❤ Fashion Boutique?  There are walls and walls of downright steals there from different designers across the grid priced from FREE to 100L.  They rotate their fashion offerings every month and even have a sweet group gift to pick up!  This month, the group gift is the Love Fashion Bag in grey shown in the photo.  The group is free to join.

The mesh winter coat I am wearing is by Ruca Tease and is not free, but a new release that is available in several colours and includes a pair of boots too! The satiny pink top I am wearing underneath is a free lucky board prize from Sn@tch.  The tops are called Ultra Lounge and they come in a fatpack of pastel colours.  They look fantastic under a jacket and are equally as wonderful on their own.  The necklace I have blogged before, but the Antique Pendant Key is still available for 1L at Fairy Tail and I love it, so I thought I’d mention it again 🙂

Luxuria

The skin I am in today is Luxuria by Mirrors Enigma.  This beauty is currently being featured at the Structure Your Skin Project for 99L.  Included are both makeup versions of the skin shown above with cleavage and hairbase options as well as the eyes, and three shape options (shapes not shown)

Finding FabFree – 21-40

Renee has shown the first 1-20 Finding FabFree gifts, and I will be showing you 21-40 in this post, and Trinket will be up next with 41-60 and Kyle with the men’s items..  First however,  In Renee’s introductory post to the Finding FabFree Hunt, she said ” I’ve told you my “Finding FabFree” story.  How did you Find FabFree?”, and I thought this would be an excellent time to share my early experiences with Fabulously Free in SL 🙂

 I joined SL in March of 2010, arriving with a group of friends from another game, and I was fortunate to have a couple of friends who were here a few weeks before hand and were able to hook me up with some (what I thought was) decent stuff.  Like most noobs of that era, I wore the likes of  strappy bling shoes and strutted around quite pleased with my sparkly self.  After three glorious months of giggling insanely over “the thriller dance on command” (it is still kind of funny after 2 years lol), and looking like a TOTAL noob, I met a friend who introduced me to the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  The first blog I read was a post done by Carson about Garden of Dreams.  Since reading that first post, I scanned the blog every day picking up the things the FabFree Bloggers said were must haves and I never thought I’d be lucky enough to be the one writing at Fabulously Free myself a year later!  That’s my story – what’s yours?
