I’m a MONSTER!

I'm a Monster!

Morning runs are all about comfort..

The past few morning have been a bit chillier than the summer like temperatures I was experiencing a week ago.  But the drop in degrees haven’t deterred me from my morning strolls. I just have to dress a bit differently. I’ve said goodbye to the shorts and t-shirts and hello to the pullovers and long pants. My workout look today comes by way of the Men Only Hunt 10. My KossKoff Crew Sweater is the hunt prize at Fe Style.  I found the Dana Dot Pants at *AGATA*, because comfort is the key factor in workout wear. I’m keeping my neck warm in the Fluffy Scarf, the MOH10 gift from ::K::.

Updated Gifts…

One of my all time favorite group gifts are the Vasiforms sneakers at Vale Koer . They have updated their group gift to the V-3 Trainers. Just like the previous group gift. These shoes come with a texture HUD that makes the color combinations virtually endless. I plan on getting a lot of mileage out of these shoes!

I just wanted to let you all know that I haven’t forgotten about you. I am currently recovering from an unforeseen health issue and don’t have much energy to post. But don’t worry, I’ll be back soon enough with all new goodies to share with you.

The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things

You better shape up…

It’s that time of the year that I decide that it’s time to get outside and start exercising. The job I have is very sedentary and it’s easy to not get enough exercise. I decided that I would take time every day and walk or run to get back into shape.  It’s a great concept, I hope I can continue to follow through.

TRAINing…

My workout look consists of some freebies I found at NewClover. Both the Red Zip-Up Jersey and the Black Line Training Pants were both hanging on the rack for FREE. There are freebies all over the store, just be careful when buying items as not all items in the store are set to 0L. My footwear choice are my go to Vasiforms from Vale Koer. I pull these out quite often as they are so versatile with the color change HUD. It’s like designing your very own high-tops every time you put them on. The Vasiforms are FREE to Vale Koer members and the group is FREE to join.

We Are Family

We Are Family

fam(ə)lē

A family is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. And the family I have here at FabFree is united together to bring you the best in free and inexpensive items for all of you on a budget (or if you just like good deals)! We often pass information to each other about the things we’ve seen that my be more someone else’s style than our own… (you won’t ever see me in a skirt and heels). 😃 My fellow bloggers and a few of my friends that point me in the way of sweet deals are my SL family. A guy couldn’t be more lucky!

I’ve been framed!

I’ve taken the time to frame my family (now I sound like a mobster) and honor them as they should be. I found while hunting on the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 the Hall of Fame Family Photo Frame at unmisTakAble Weddings. The gifts on this hunt are just $1L each. Hopefully you have a family as big as mine to frame as well.

Being picked on for sport…

And with any family, there is always teasing back and forth. I usually come out on the short end of the stick.😣 My sporty casual look for a Sunday can both be found at the Wash Cart Sale. At the K&A Design cart, I found both the Sports Tee Shirt and Sport Pants both for just $10L each.

And now it is time for me to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. I worked way too hard doing yard work yesterday…

Fast Break

Fast Break

For the love of the game…

Back in the day, I was a baller, not a bad one either… until the dreaded knee gave out or I had to hang up the jersey for good. At least in Second Life I can continue my love for the game and not have my knee remind me that there are things I can no longer do without consequences.

Full-court press…

You’ll be heating up and hitting all the three’s in the outfit I basketball inspired look from the Emerald Couture cart at The Wash Cart Sale. The MB Sport Teal Outfit was just $10L. Teal not your color? There were other colors to choose from as well. I’m finishing my sporty look with the Vasiforms, a FREE group gift from Vale Koer.  These sneakers are so versatile you’ll never need another pair of kickers.

He drives the lane…get’s inside… he fakes… he goes up… he shoots… he SCORES!

Seeking Sunshine

Horr

Blue skies and fields of green…

It has been a dark and dreary winter. Mostly overcast, but not much snow, which, btw is not normal for my neck of the woods. Atfer receiving a few inches of powder, I have decided to seek out some sunshine and green meadows here in Second Life instead. Today’s look come by way of Horr Menswear. The Bridgeport Set is part of the For Him Hunt 3. The brown shirt and jeans combination is a perfect casual look for a  hike or lounging around on a blanket with that special someone. The For Him Hunt gifts are all just $1L each. My advice for the day… take a walk, get some sun and breathe in some fresh air.

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.

Love is in the Air

Ashmoot

Half-Hearted…

As the dreaded happy Valentine’s season fast approaches, we wanted to show off his and her matching shirts to kick off this horrible joyous holiday. I wanted to wear the “I’m With Stupid” matching shirts, but Love refused to put on the “Stupid” shirt and it didn’t come in my size… so… we are both wearing the I ❤ My Girl/I ❤ My Boy shirts from AsHmOoT. These shirts are FREE to AsHmOoT members and the group is FREE to join. Get your special friend to wear it with you, even if you only care just a half a heart. In case you hadn’t noticed, Love is on my shoulders, off the ground, in the air…. Love is IN the air… GET IT… GET.IT??  <cricket sounds>  So much for that joke working…. I’ve been told that SLife is all about balance (and someone needs to quit wiggling around on my shoulders if she wants me to keep MY balance). The way she keeps her balance is to pretend her shirt says I ❤ My Dog. 🐕

Ashmoot Full

Loves a Good Challenge…

Also don’t forget the photo challenge that begins on February 1st . The theme is “Love”. Show love anyway you want… (PG-13 please) love is sweet, love sucks, Love is a great and powerful boss lady (who is getting heavy).  This round will be generously hosted by Carrie Snowpaw of Snowpaws! She is donating a 3,000L giftcard to Snowpaw’s Store for the Winner of the Challenge and a 1,500L giftcard to Snowpaw’s Store for the Runner-up!

We want to see all your mushy pictures and gush all over them.

Bad Hair Day

BAD

That Airborne Jet Lag Feeling…

Heya gang! I’m glad to be back after my excursion into that zone called Real Life for a family event… (That place isn’t what it’s cracked up to be… js)  It was a whirlwind trip but I’m so happy to be back home surrounded by all the things I love (dog included).  And I’m glad to be back and get all pixelly with you all, playing at all the things I love, including skateboarding.  I have several group gifts to show you and and an actual purchase *gasp* to show off today, so let’s get at it. I found several group gifts at Costarlos , but chose the Andy T-Shirt as my choice today. It looks casual and fun and perfect for grabbing some air. The group is FREE to join and the board of gifts available are FREE to members.

Panting and Out of Breath…

I found out that the TopGun Aviator Sunglasses I picked up at the Cosmopolitan Advent last month is also a FREE Group Gift at A&D Clothing . This makes me so happy because I love wearing these and can adjust the lens transparency with the included HUD. This group is also FREE to join. While I was at A&D Clothing I carved over ( totally surprised they let me skateboard in the store) to the Costner Pants display and thought those would be comfortable for a day grinding on the sidewalks. The Costner Pants set me back $199L,  but I was happy to part with my lindens. They also come in other colors or can be bought as a fatpack.

Retreading it…

I’m also wearing a FREE group gift from Vale Koer. The Vasiforms with Color Change HUD, that I have previously shown [HERE], is still available and is so versatile that you will want to keep these in your footwear closet.

Hair today, Gone tomorrow….

I know you’re thinking that I must have been bursting not being able to blog for a few days (by the length of this post) and you’d be right. Before I left, my big sister Serena bullied me told me that I needed to step out of my 4 year old comfort zone and explore new hair, if not for me, then as a service to you all, the readers. She said hair has come a long way in 4 years and to embrace the mesh. Love even mentioned that my old hair looked “blocky” and “like a helmet”  (I preferred the term “chunky”). I relented and went hair shopping. My mission was to find hair that was so similar to my old hair that the ladies would have a hard time telling the difference. I achieved that goal by stopping by ARGRACE and picking up one of their many FREE Subscriber Gifts. the Minato Hair is what I was looking for when I set out to update my hair. I plan on finding similar but different hair styles in the future to get a hair rotation going (can’t let the girls have all the fun).

Poking at Bad Unicorns…

Finally, (ikr?) My skateboard and backdrop both come from the same place. By joining the group for FREE at Bad Unicorn,  you can get both the Skateboard (that comes with an AO) and the B.A.D Backdrop for FREE. Now I’m off to Top Gun with the bros and impress the hos.  Later, dudes!

Tired Santa

Gizza Christmas Gift Male

Just settling in for a long Winter’s nap….

I truly forgot how hectic it was blogging all the free gifts in December. I’m wore out! Beat! Bushed! I’m still in my FREE group gift from Gizza, the Christmas Jacket w/ Cardigan from when Serena and I found the perfect Christmas tree.  My Santa Pants came from the Santa Goes to Gor outfit by Kitty Creations that I picked up at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L. My Red Sneakers are the FREE group gift from Vale KoerIf you want a different color, attach the color change HUD and pick the look you want. Both the GIZZA and Vale Koer groups are FREE to join!

My Christmas Loot…

I think I made out pretty well this year. Some of the items  have been shown previously by Love [HERE]. Also, because of the nature of Advents and free Christmas goodies, some of these Items may no longer be available. Now I can slow down and ACTUALLY do what I told Love when I started… 1 or 2 posts a week (or more).
