Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! 😛

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet, and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar… although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. 🙂

Right Here Waiting

K&A Design (Cart Sale) LDR Justin Trousers FA Red Sneakers MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

“Wait here,” she says, “I’ll just be a few minutes….”

That was an hour ago and it has started to snow. But here I sit, because I was asked to.  I’m wearing a few old (previously blogged) items, because they have become some of my favorites this holiday season, and some new items I hope will become favorites. Let’s start with the old… From The Wash Cart Sale, I’m wearing the K&A Design Winter Red Sweater that I first showed [HERE]. This seems to be one of my go to items in my closet lately. It’s just $10L on the K&A Design cart. I’m also wearing the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I showed [HERE].

“Watch these bags while I check out the store over there…”

OMG! How long is this going to take… I joined the LDR  group for FREE and picked up the Justin Trousers as a FREE Group Gift.  I also joined the Full Addiction group, again for FREE,  and got the Red Sneakers as a FREE gift.

MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

This is for the birds…

Waiting here in the cold and the snow… I’ll most probably get sick before Christmas. At least I have my little owl friend to keep me company. The Xmas Owl Scarf  by MoonAmore+Cureless is a FREE gift under the Christmas tree at The ArcadeThis little guy has his wings out, but there is also a scarf with him perched safely on the scarf. Finally, -sigh-  Here she comes…  No! Don’t go in the pet store…..

T – 2 Days

Snapshot_004

Hey FabFree! As you can see my puppy made it home safe and sound after his walkabout to Serena’s and then his untimely abduction by Carson.  He’s exhausted poor thing, not even enough energy to play with his favourite ball, but I made him pose for the photo so you could see he was returned safely!  I’m sure once he wakes up, he’ll be ready for another adventure.  Who knows where he will wind up this afternoon!

Running Out of Advent Time!

There is only a couple more days to take advantage of all of the free gifts in the Kittycats Advent Calendar and if you haven’t been by, you can head down there and pick up all of the previous days.  This calendar is filled with sometimes multiple gifts each day by different designers across the grid.  Now…  I can’t remember which day I got this awesome gift by Rebel Hope, but I wanted to share the news with you so you know it’s in there … somewhere!  This gift by Rebel Hope includes the dress and boots shown as well as a headband and a hat (not shown).

Dress & Boot Sizes:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

It’s the Truth, I tell you!

My hairstyle today is courtesy of Truth who put their Irena and Irenka hairstyles under the holiday Pompom hats and sent them out to the inworld Truth group.  This is similar to the previous hair gift that Sheidey has been showing off in her posts [HERE], and [HERE], but with a holiday pom pom hat ;).  A full selection of colour huds for hair and texture change for the hat is included.

Also in Truth  group notices right now, you’ll find the Bangs Collection which is a great way to add a little versatility to any of your Truth hair!  I am wearing the Swept Right Narrow bangs with my Irenka hair today and it really changed up the look.  There are several different types of bangs (or fringe as some of you around the world call it) and as like the PomPom Hat gift, there is a full selection of colour huds!  I can’t wait to try it with the other kajillion Truth hairstyles I have been collecting.  It will be like new hair all over again!  There is a fee of 350L to join currently, but it’s worth it!

Winter Decor

Now this bench with my little squirrel friend is another one of the Le Poppycock Animal Friends  poses from the gacha offering at The Liason Collaborative (50L per play), but also… sitting beside the bench you’ll see a very nice winter décor piece by Dixie Dandelion called Pilling Lantern & Gulls w/ Shell that I picked up for 10L at The Wash Cart Sale.  This item is transferrable so that you can even gift it to a friend if you like!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/23/2016 – Kamiri

Kamiri DownstairsOnce again it’s Fab Free Designer Friday, and today’s featured designer is Kamiri! This shop is a ladies clothing store, with a mix of mesh and applier clothing. The best way to describe the clothing style at Kamiri would be colorful and fun! You’ll find a lot of cute flirty outfits in bright playful colors. This store is also really great for those who like applier clothing, it’s not often you find stores with so much to offer in the way of appliers. Additionally there are tons of way to score FREE or inexpensive items throughout the Kamiri store. Since there are so many gifts and goodies to be had, I split everything up into first and second floor finds. Pictured above are just the gifts and promotions I was able to find on the first floor.

As you land in the Kamiri shop, you’ll instantly see a long table full of various group gifts. Notice the bottom photo in the collage above. The Fabulously Free  in SL group exclusive gift is there as well. You’ll see it sitting next to the Fab Free sign on the table. Wear your Fab Free group tag and get this FREE gift if you haven’t already. For a preview, check out Katheryn’s post here. Just behind the gift table you’ll see a Midnight Madness board, from what I can tell there’s no target set, and everyone who clicks the board while wearing their Kamiri group tag gets the prize. The Kamiri group is FREE to join. Also downstairs, there is a promo offer of 75 lindens for a specific color version of one of Kamiri’s newest releases. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the most recent Kamiri group gifts. They are downstairs next to the circulation desk. As if that wasn’t enough there are more gifts upstairs!
Kamiri UpstairsHeading up the stairs, you’ll be greeted by 4 lucky letter boards with short wait time between letters! You’ll also notice several areas around the room that have discounted items. Then it’s hard to miss the cute little sitting area next to the stairs. You’ll want to bring a couple of friends, the sitting area is actually 3 camping chairs, each with a different prize. You’ll want to wear your Kamiri group tag for these, which is again FREE to join. Finally, you’ll see yet another long table packed with previous Kamiri group gifts. Gather your girlfriends and head over to Kamiri for lots of shopping and freebies, you won’t be disappointed!
