Not Tonight

Untitled (Because I haven't thought of one yet!)

Hey, fabulous readers! I’m back today with some great gifts for the guys! 🙂

The Hair

Starting at the top is this great hair from DURA. Not only is it a free group gift (and free to join), but it is also a unisex style so you ladies can wear it, too!

The hair includes a HUD with 12 different colors. Click the hair for a resizer menu.

The Jacket

What inspired this look was the gorgeous jacket and messenger bag combo from Gabriel.

The Side-Zip Leather Jacket comes in black, brown, navy, and beige, and includes a “hands-in-pockets” as well as a regular version. Gavin is wearing the black hands-in-pockets version.

Note that there is only 1 size for each version, and the messenger bag is not resizeable.

Each color version includes the messenger bag and is available for purchase for just 1L each. OR, you can purchase the fatpack of all four colors for just 4L!

This offer ends on 25 February 2018, so hurry to Gabriel if you’d like to grab it!

The Boots

Finding decent free footwear for the fellas is a challenge, so I was really happy to get the notice of Resun’s latest group gift for men.

The Ivan Boots come in the black, unlaced version you see above, and in the following sizes:

  • Aesthetic
  • Slink
  • Signature
  • TMP
  • Standard mesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

A couple of notes about these boots:

  1. When I first unpacked the box, there was nothing in the folder except a landmark, shoe base, and alpha layer. When I tried again I discovered that EACH BOOT is offered as a separate item, so be sure you accept each one. I didn’t do this the first time – DOH! Then I couldn’t find where the unpacked items went… but finally found them all in my Objects folder. Just letting you know so you don’t have the same experience!
  2. The boots are not resizeable, but you can reposition them. I found the Slink version came up a bit high on the leg, so I was glad to be able to move them down a bit.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!

Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

V is for…

V is for...

Valentine Schmalentine

Unfortunately, not everyone has been hit by one of cupid’s arrows.

If you’re just not in the mood to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and would much prefer to drown your sorrows in a drink… this sweater might be perfect for you.

Fe Style has set out the V is for Valentine VODKA crew neck sweater as their February group gift. It comes in mesh sizes XS-XL with an alpha layer.

Enjoy the rest of your day, even if you don’t have a special someone to celebrate with. 🙂

❤ Serena

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
