Saturday in the park

Good Friday evening to you, Fab Folks. The weekend approaches and isn’t it good to see it looming on our horizon! I’d be willing to bet that more than a few of us have some time in the park planed this weekend… maybe with a picnic? If so, the Picnic in the Park Hunt is just the thing for you!

picnic_001

No picnic is complete without some juicy watermelon and this cute frock from Odd Clothing Etc. is a little slice of yummy. Short and flirty, it’s perfect for a summer date.

If you’re more a shorts and tank sort, then Siren’s Moon’s gift is going to be a comfy favorite. I really love the bright retro print and the halter is held by a cute little red heart in back.

picnic_002

The Picnic in the Park Hunt is only a tiny little 1L per gift and has 14 stops. The Hunt runs until June 15th so you’ve got plenty of time to play this fun little Hunt.

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

When Life Gives You Lemons

Snapshot_005
Hiya Fabulous readers :) I know it’s my usual thing to show you free-ish clothing, accessories, skins and hair, but I have been enjoying putting little scenes together with free and low cost furniture and decorative items lately too.  I hope you can find something  you like to spruce your own pixel place up.  Today in my blog post entry I am displaying to you, the latest group gift at Apple Fall and a sweet group offer by Follow Us too.

I am a collector of the Apple Fall Cakes lol.. I don’t know what it is about them aside from the fact that they make me drool, but I just love them and when I see one in a gacha set, I play for it – but this time the new cake is free!!  Apple Fall is celebrating 4000 inworld members and has placed out a special group gift that includes the delicious looking Lemon Drizzle Cake and refreshing Lemonade Bucket.  The Lemonade bucket gives out can of lemonade on touch.  This group is free to join!

The cozy pouf I am seated upon is a 10L group offer by Follow Us and has a super cute lemon cream cupcake on the blanket draped over the stool.  If you are into girly décor – this is a must have with 5 animated poses in the menu and an adjust option.  The Follow Us group is 40L to join, but there are a ton of gifts and offers available making the fee well worth it.

A Second Chapter

Snapshot_005

Hi Fabulouses!  Guess who else is celebrating an anniversary?  When it rains – it pours… and it’s raining free group gifts in celebration of their second anniversary over at this round of The Chapter Four!  I am showing you six of them in this post, but there are a good 25 – 30 of them – and the group is free to join!

I’ll start with the goodies I am wearing tonight – At The Chapter Four as free group gifts you can find the LpD Judy Top in white which comes in several mesh sizes as well as the Fishy Strawberry Moto Jeggings.  These Jeggings come in normal sizes and curvy sizes – plus you get black and blue!  The Bday Octopulpo friend is wearable and is the gift you can pick up that is sponsored by Moon Amore.

Now moving onto the set I have built…  The cute little rezzable Ferret in a hoodie is by Birdy and if you love this lil guy, you can play for other versions in their gacha machine.  The bag he is holding is the Eco Bag by M.Birdie Story and is holdable for avatars, but I thought he looked cute wearing it instead lol.  The double pillow with the sweet little bird on it is the gift by Serenity Style.

If you are an inworld member of the Sway’s group (250L to join), you can pick up the Seat Cushions in a folklore print along with the table and table accessories for free!  This is located at their mainstore.

Just two more pieces to tell you about… and these are not gifts, but are very affordable!  I picked up the Wannabe Boho Petal Mirror and Rug in an instore gacha machine at the Junk mainstore at 50L per play and if you love eclectic boho decorating you are going to love this set!

I’m off to open up more boxes – this is just like Christmas all over again! Enjoy your night :)

Swaying Into Summer

Snapshot_006

Good evening Fabulouses ;)  Tonight I bring you news of a couple group gifts I picked up at Sway’s and a sweet summer outfit by Entice that I won in a midnight mania board!

You will need to join the Entice inworld group to access the midnight mania board that delivers the free “Like a Prayer” outfit at midnight if it’s locked down, but the group is free – so it won’t hurt!  This outfit includes a pair of belted denim shorts and the colourful blouse you see me lounging about in.

I put this little summery scene together with the Broken & Unbroken Lawn Chair [Flag] Set that I found as a free group gift at Sway’s.  The chairs come in both broken and unbroken versions and each have several relaxing (and falling – lmao) poses.  These chairs are copy if you need to rez more out for friends.  The Cookie Bear is also a free group gift at Sway’s and was sent out last year, but he’s still available and very cute!  This group is 250L to join and there are a few gifts to snag.

My [Quack] Swim Ring that I am about to toss into the pool can be found in a Sway’s instore gacha machine at 50L per play.

Enjoy your evening!
