Won’t You Sit With Me For a Bit?

Break Time

Oh, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m just taking a break from my side gig playing in a band.  I found the perfect shady spot over at Cranium Bay.  How about sitting down and joining me while I tell you about my new outfit?  I picked it up completely for free.

Rock On

The other morning, I was out walking Ripley so a certain someone could sleep in.  Our path just happened to take us by The Free Dove (actually it was a bit out of our way, but hey, we needed the workout).  I decided to wander in and see if there were any new gifts available for the guys, and I was in luck! La Bella Boutique has generously set out the Aber Shirt and Amber Shorts set that I am wearing today absolutely for free for members of The Free Dove group.  One of the best things about this gift is the texture/color change HUDs that you receive for both the top and the bottom, which makes this gift seem like you are getting a week’s worth of clothes all tucked into one neat package.  The shirt HUD offers 13 background color options along with 7 designs to choose from.  Want a plain top?  No problem!  For the shorts, you’ve got 12 varieties at your fingertips.  I really like how the tee clings to your shape and helps show off those abs you’ve worked so hard to achieve.  😉 The pants include an integrated belt that comes in handy along with the option to have normal or loose fit.  If you’d like to scoop up this set for yourself, just head on over to The Free Dove, activate the group tag (there’s no join fee), click the vendor, and boom! you’re in business.  With versions for classic and mesh avatars, there’s something for everybody in the box.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Shirt:  Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Shirt:  Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, Slink, TMP
  • Shorts:  (no classic version) Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, NX-David, Slink, TMP

Well, the rest of the guys are returning from break, so I have to get back to work.  Thanks for hanging out with me awhile.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Pineapple of my Eye

Pineapple of my Eye

Are you ready to bulk up your wardrobe?  It’s always important to have a few basics to throw on – sometimes they make an outfit!  Well, Alaskametro and the Free Dove have teamed up to create a little fun free hunt so that you can have your own capsule wardrobe full of super awesome items!

High and Low

I went over to Alaskametro’s mainstore and searched the area for the hunt prizes which are found in shopping bags peppered around the shop.  Two of the prizes I found are this long tank top (which comes with 3 different textures) and these moto leggings that I think are super versatile.  You could mix and match all the prizes from this hunt and end up with some really stellar looks.  I’ve put the store ad below so you can see what there is to be had.  You will find half of the prizes at Alaskametro, and half of them at The Free Dove.  Best of all, it’s all free!

 Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • XS – M with an Alpha Layer

Fifty Linden Friday Finds for Guys!

Watch Out

“Hey, Serena? I’ve been calling you all morning. Where are you? I thought you wanted me to bring you some lunch today? Oh well, call me.”

Awww, poor Gavin. I forgot to tell him that I was feeling better and decided to take Fergus out for a ride this morning, lol! 😳

FLF for Guys

But everything worked out since Gavin was able to do a little Fifty Linden Friday shopping!

Starting at the top: Gavin scored with some great hair from Wasabi. The Marcus hair comes in a special pack of 7 colors, with and without roots. The hair is resizeable and even comes with a smaller version for the ladies.

Gavin’s sweater is a FLF deal from Etham. The Julian Turtleneck comes in blue or gray and is sized for the following mesh bodies:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP

There are some really nice Fifty Linden Friday finds out for the fellas today, so be sure to grab them before midnight SLT tonight!

Free Jeans

Gavin also managed to find a pair of free jeans! The Worn Denim Jeans by Apple May Designs are a free gift at The Free Dove.

The jeans come in sizes XS-L with an alpha layer, but they work fine on Gavin’s Slink mesh body.

There is also a version for the ladies in the box!

Guess I’d better give Gavin a call so he can bring me some dinner. 😉

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

A New Gift on the Horizon

Ever Wonder Where You'd End Up If You Took Your Dog For a Walk and Never Pulled Back On The Leash?

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  I borrowed the pupster and his tracking harness to see if he and I could round up a budget friendly hunt gift or two on the trail of the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and the old guy didn’t let me down.  I’ll have to give her a quick jingle to see if she finished baking that fresh batch of Ripley snacks…

For Those Warm Days When She Wants  You to Walk the Dog

At Horr Menswear, our very first stop, we scored the Duvall shirt I am wearing in my photo.  It’s a tied-around-the-waist model only, but with today’s warm sunshine, I didn’t mind.  Plus, it gave me a chance to show off my new tattoo (more on that in a moment).  The hunt package costs 1 Linden dollar, and includes classic mesh and versions for several mesh bodies.   I really like the plaid pattern, and I’m looking forward to wearing it often in the near future.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha necessary)
  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

Get Inked!

My new tattoos are a free group gift for members of the Teleport Hub group, courtesy of Angel’s Design.  The Horizon tattoo features a sinuous design down both arms, a tribal style face on the left pec, a skull on the abs, and three more large designs up and down the back.  The box includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP,  as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars.  Joining the Teleport Hub group will set you back 10L, but that opens up a multitude of free gifts around the grid.  I’m not sure how long this item will be available, so if you like these tats as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop soon to pick up a copy for yourself.

I’d better get Ripley back home so he can enjoy his well-deserved reward.  Until next time, so long!

After Yesterday’s Rain

Misty Morning

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  After yesterday’s rain, the dawn arrived with a nearly cloudless sky, so Ripley and I decided to take a journey to Felicite Isle, one of our favorite sims for relaxing.  As small waves lapped against the shore, we paused among some wild flowers to capture a quick photo.

Fresh New Frock for Spring

I decided the other day to re-visit The Free Dove to see if there were any gifts recently made available, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover this free long sleeved dress from AvaGirl.  I’m not sure if it is a new addition to The Free Dove’s line up, or if I just had never seen it before, but once I spotted it, I knew it was destined for my inventory.  Featuring a full skirt that drapes to mid-thigh, a cute little cut out area on my tummy, and buttoned fasteners on the bodice, this frock made a wonderful addition to my spring wardrobe.  Best of all, it is completely free!  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to pick it up, however, there is no group join fee, so this new outfit will cost you exactly….zero linden dollars.  Now, that’s what I call a budget-friendly option!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just Another Rainy Day

Let it Rain

“We’re almost out of dog food,” she sighed.  “Would you be a good sport and run out to pick some up?”  Since she was making home made chicken noodle soup (from scratch), and the big guy stared at me with pleading chocolate brown eyes, what else could I do?  A man and his pal (ok, ok HER pal) have got to eat!  I suddenly found myself trudging through the downpour on my way to the pet food warehouse.  Not how I planned to spend my Sunday morning, but I can’t resist either one of them!

That Turned Up Collar

Lucky for me, I had the new Stand Collar Jacket from Gabriel to protect me from the downpour.  Its thick fabric repelled the deluge, while its large collar prevented the rain from soaking into my shirt.  With sturdy buckles, a generous cut, and full length sleeves, there is no way that damp wind is going to work its way through.  Right now, this overcoat is available for just 1L in three shades (dark blue, dark olive and the dark gray I am wearing), and also includes an alpha layer, and a shoulder bag.  That should keep Ripley’s food nice and dry while I brave my way through the storm.  I’m not sure how long this special offer will last, so I’d recommend a quick tp to the shop soon if you’d like a copy for yourself.  She keeps writing about warm spring days, but I’m here to tell you, they aren’t all filled with sunshine.  A jacket comes in mighty handy on days like today.

Happiness is Homemade Soup

With mission “Dog Food” accomplished, I’m on my way back home, looking forward to savoring a steaming bowl of her secret family recipe.  If you ask, she might have some leftovers to share…

~ Stan  

P.S. – Really, it’s just Kat wishing she had someone to go out in the freezing rain to pick up dog food… but I *do* have some home made chicken noodle soup for anyone who’s willing…  🙂

I Called Across The Sea, Did You Hear Me?

I Called Across The Sea, Did You Hear Me?

Hey there Fabulouses!

It’s High Tides and Good Vibes At The Free Dove!

There have been a few additions to the freebies at The Free Dove, and this beautiful Kirana Dress in Denim Fade by Spyralle is just one of them!  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those still on the system body.  While it doesn’t come with mesh body fitted sizes, the medium size fit my avatar pretty well using the Maitreya Lara alpha HUD to clear out any rogue body parts.  You can find this item on the women’s casual clothing table.

The Free Dove inworld group is free to join… and really – there is something for everyone with all of the freebies, group gifts and hunt items, so go take a look!
