Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!

Falling Down

Falling Down_001

The leaves have turned their colors in my neighborhood and are rapidly falling down from the trees. The Marketplace Leaves hunt gift that I discovered reminded me of that… and the butterfly on the front seems to give it a last of late summer touch that makes it softly melancholy but also very pretty.

The gift… just 10L

The Marketplace Leaves Hunt is a hunt on the marketplace. You can click here for more information. The gift from Miss Jewell is the Lyle outfit. It includes a mesh top in standard sizes, jewelry, system layer pants, a prim skirt, and system layer stockings. I opted to only wear the mesh top as I have a mesh body and for just 10L, the beautiful mesh top was the item I fell in love with. I added accessories that were already in my inventory and came up with an outfit that I really liked. I bet you can do the same!

Happy falling leaves to you as autumn progresses!

It’s not a trick!

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

Ready for Music

Music_002

I love when gifts just appear in my inventory! That’s what is so great about subscriber gifts 😀 And Graffitiwear has sent out their free September subscriber gifts and this month they were so cute I wanted to make sure you fabulous readers didn’t miss out!

Check your inventory!

If you’re already a subscriber to Graffitiwear, check your inventory for the free gift box from Graffitiwear for September and unpack it! You’ll discover a pair of fitmesh tee shirts. One has this great guitar design on the front (shown in the picture above) and the other has a set of headphones (not shown). Both have a “ripped” back design which I wasn’t able to get in the picture, and belatedly wished I’d thought to take a picture of. The outfit has that awesome 90’s music appeal to it!

If you’re not a subscriber, go down to the Graffitiwear main-store and click the subscribomatic for your free gift and that will also sign you up for future gifts as well! You’ll be all set!

Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome. Today we are taking a rare look at a Prudence Rexroth in her natural habitat, and preferred state of being. Notice the sleep mask she wears serves a dual purpose, warning any who might disturb her away while simultaneously blocking out any and all light. Also noteworthy, the casual comfortable attire, essential for deep restful sleep. All cheekiness aside, I do have a very serious relationship with my bed. I love sleeping, and I think naps are deeply undervalued. Just like toddlers, most adults I know (myself included) are cranky when they haven’t had enough rest!

This sleep mask from Poeme is the perfect sleep accessory for those like me who take their siestas seriously. The Poeme group is just 1 linden to join at this time and you can pick up this cute FREE gift on the second floor. It’s sitting in a box on a table near the group lucky letter boards and Midnight Mania. There’s also a June group gift available on the Poeme main floor, so don’t miss out on the chance to score some gifts and stay for some lucky letter play.

The comfy casual tank top Pru has on is a FREE subscriber gift at Curve. It comes with a color change hud for 6 total color options. To get this sweet gift, all you have to do is join the Curve subscriber, once your name is added in the Curve subscriber you’ll be sent this FREE gift automatically.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – *Besom~ Atom *Essentials*

Skin –  Essences – Mel (Catwa & Omega) – Exclusive@Shiny Shabby

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

HeatWave Event – Somnia

The Heat Wave event at the Wash just keeps getting better and better!
Somnia_001

This is the Cart for Somnia and, as always, it’s full of fun beautiful items for us. I’m going back to the beach with the ‘Wave of Passion’ tank and the ‘Spring Fling Special’ shorts.  Each of these items are just 10Ls! They both comes with a HUD to give you all the colors. The tank HUD even gives you the option to change the color of the belt and the belt clasp to suit your taste. I do love mixing and matching! Oh and those colors? They’re special editions for the Cart!

Somnia_002

The Somnia Cart is also offering us three nail styles for this round. The HUDs are included for Omega, Belleza and Slink Hands. Be aware, the SLink HUD only works on the Version 2.0 Slink hands and feet.  I picked out the fresh ‘Summer fruits’ HUD for ‘watermelon’ nails to go with my watermelon juice pop. My tasty treat is from Okaie and I found the pack of five flavors on the Marketplace for only 25L.

Snapshot_002

The Heat Wave Event will only be around until June 10th then it will disappear like a melted popsicle…..

This is OMG‘s super cute tank and jeans combination: the ‘Confused Tank’ and ‘Low rider jeans’. I won’t swear to it… but I think I may have had this same outfit back in the 90s…..   **shuts up before she gives away her age**

I also picked up this cute choker from Geek Chic Creations: the ‘Yin Yang Choker’. Completely resizable and stylish for any era if you ask me.
