(Fur) Babysitting

furbabies

Doggy Daddy…

She’s working late, so I’m babysitting her furballs. I may grumble to her about having to watch them, but I secretly enjoy it. (Don’t be telling her, I WILL deny it!) I’ve been following the male path on the What’s Your Category Hunt  but had to come home for my doggy daddy duties. I’ve kicked off my socks (conveniently on the floor and not put in the hamper) and now I’m enjoying this relaxing time with these bundles of joy.  I found both my shirt and pants for just $1L each on the hunt. The Marc Shirt by Sin Original and the Danny Jeans found at Shae’s Designs are both made for the following body types:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • Tmp
  • Standard Sizes XS-XL

Posing with puppies…

Her cute little furbabies are from Frimon Store. The Men 21 pose ($50L) comes with the four puppies, the laptop and newspapers/magazines at my feet.
I heard the door close, she must be home. I need to put on my game face and act annoyed I had to dog sit. (scratches this cute one behind the ear just one more time….)

Lemonade Stand

Lemonade

It’s not the milkshake that brings the girls to the yard…

…It’s the lemonade. I am really needing warmer weather to finally settle in. I’m starting to get a case of cabin fever and thinking about all the Spring and Summer activities I enjoy. Stopping by a mobile drink stand and picking out my favo(u)rite cold summer drink has been right up there on the list. Today’s FREE gift is a group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. The Leather Jacket is tight fitting and does not come with a shirt layer. So I borrowed the Military PT Uniform Olive Drab Shirt from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift I found at Emmalena Damour Designs that I previously showed [HERE]. This shirt is worn with an Omega Applier for my body and works great with the jacket. Another Springtime Aesthetics Hunt gift that comes in sizes than the Aesthetics form is the Derek Jeans part of the $1L hunt gift from Sin Original that was originally shown [HERE]. Here’s to warm, sunny days ahead for everyone!

Aesthetics Post 2

Hunting through the night…

One of the great things about Second Life is that it’s open all night. If you can’t sleep you can do the same things you would do during the daytime hours. And one of the things I like doing when i can’t sleep is participating in hunts. The Springtime Aesthetic Hunt just started and I’m finding all kinds of goodies with the Aesthetic (and sometimes other) bodies in mind. Today’s look comes by way of Sin Original. I’m showing the Oliver Tee and Derek Jeans for the Aesthetic body, but also included in the $1L hunt gift are styles and sizes listed below:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Classic mesh sizes XS_XL

The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt continues through March 31st. You can find a list of participating stores [HERE]. Happy Hunting!

Aesthetic Carson is wearing…

Outfit: Sin Original – Oliver Tee & Derek Jeans (Springtime Aesthetics Hunt $1L)
Shoes: Wilson’s Designs – Combat Boots in black
Mesh Body: (NIRAMYTH) – AESTHETIC – Advanced Mesh Body – ENZO 1.8

Color Me a Wild Sinful Mayden

Color Me a Wild Sinful Mayden

I’m feeling a little wild today! (And you can too!) All you need is this sinfully delightful outfit from Sin Original — their hunt gift for the Colors of the Wild Hunt — and you can be wild with me! If you head to their main-store, hunt for the little leaf and buy it for only 1L, you get this outfit — complete with dress, applier pants, and slink shoes too!  The pants come in system layers, plus added appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega… for all your applier needs. And the dress portion comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

(Good news fellas! There was a guys’ gift in the box for the same 1L so if you are interested, you might want to grab the leaf too!)

I topped off my wild fancies with this stunning pearls and ribbon necklace from Mayden Couture called Lenor. It was a steal on the marketplace for only 1L. And if violet (the color I’m wearing) isn’t your thing, it comes in several other color choices for the same 1L price — just browse the marketplace store!

Don’t worry, this hunt runs till January 31st, so you have plenty of time. Happy hunting!

Summer Dreams

Dreams of Summer

Hello Fab Free’rs! So I decided I’m starting my weekend early and return to a tropical resort I stumbled across called Las Islas! It really is gorgeous there, the perfect vacation spot. With the intention of relaxing and soaking up the sun, I picked up the perfect summer outfit at Fab Free Headquarters. This pretty yet casual skirt and halter-top combo is a FREE gift from Sin Original at FFHQ. I think the black and white gradient pattern is visually pleasing, and I can see wearing this outfit for sight seeing or even as a cover-up on the beach. The FREE gift includes a mesh top, and mesh skirt in several sizes, along with matching shoes (not shown) that have a color change hud for the shoes and feet. Get ready for the weekend with this great look from Sin Original for FREE at FFHQ!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Springing Into May, All Hopped Up On Freebies!

whc kauna jacket 1

May has started out wonderfully for me, and when you get a glance at this freebie, your May will become as great as mine. FaMESHed is a monthly event on SL, and this month was actually the first time I ever attended. Being a guy, shopping events have not been a major focus of mine (until now). I am kicking myself for that though since I laid eyes on this fantastic FREE leather overcoat from Kauna! The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat is supplied in both a black and a brown version and is finely textured. In fact, click on the pictures in this post and you can almost feel the leather with your fingertips. Prepare to fall in some serious love with this overcoat. It is given away FREE at FaMESHed to celebrate the third anniversary of the event and to promote Kauna’s excellent line of XIV suits and separates. If you have the money, you might well be compelled to do what I did and splurge on some matching components, like the XIV T-Shirt Pack: Plain & Striped and the XIV Shirt: Coffee pictured above. They are made to fit beautifully with the overcoat and are a very nice luxury if you have the coin.

whc kauna jacket 2

You might ask, “What if you have nothing to spend on Second Life’s great luxuries at the moment?” Well, if that’s the case, then this overcoat is still a must pick up. In addition to the components made to fit especially for this jacket, you can use other items you could already have in your inventory. Being a mesh overcoat, it might be somewhat tricky to find pieces to wear under it. With this stylish garment, I would heartily recommend system (layers) T-shirts, and (if you can find some) system dress shirts with sculpted collars. Both will look great with it. Even if you have to fiddle with the sculpted collars to find one that works well, you are going to look fantastic.

In the picture above, you can see I paired The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat with a FREE Group Gift from Gizza; a pink and black shirt that was offered a while back and is still available. I think it looks very nice in this outfit and is a great example of a freebie that works well. Gizza is a great place to pick up a bunch of Free Gifts since they keep their previous FREE Group Gifts out for an extended period. It would be an excellent first stop in a search for items to wear with this stylish overcoat.

Last, but far from least, I am wearing a very special set of eyes. The Mayfly – Luminous – Mesh Eyes in London Fog are a FREE Gift from one of the best eye creators in Second Life. They look fantastic and offer a wide variety of options controlled by a surprisingly robust hud, which allows variations in size, reflections, and shadowing (among other options). I love the way they look! While you are in eye collecting mode – which sounds super creepy now that I say it out loud – keep in mind that Mayfly also has a FREE Gift over at Fab Free Headquarters! The recently updated Mayfly – Deep Sky Eyes in Medium Onyx are gorgeous grey eyes. If you haven’t come by to pick them up yet, rest assured they are completely worth the trip. With all the great freebies and gifts this week, you’ll spring into May in style! From my little pixel heart to all of you, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Little Buddy

This cute, little guy was out wandering around here on the DERAILED sim, and was nice enough to pose for a picture with me. If he follows me home, can I keep him?

Blogging soon!

My outfit is the November group gift from Sin Original, which includes the jeans, sweater, and jacket. There is also a gift for the ladies, which Love showed here. The gift includes a pair of shoes, but instead I decided to wear these great Men’s Work Boots, which are a free gift from =MODA= at The Rockabilly Fashion Fair (TRFF). Did I mention that this is a FATPACK of boots, and you get 5 different colors in the box? AND there is also a gift for women? 😀 The Rockabilly Fashion Fair continues until November 23rd, so don’t miss out!

Oh, my skin is a group gift from Belleza. It has has been around for a while, and shown here several times. But it’s still a great skin, and still available. Also not new, but still free, is my texture-change scarf by Mr. Poet. 10 different colors are included.
