These Boots Are Made For… Kittens

Puppies & Kitties

Uninvited Guests

Unlike at Edi’s place, I think it may literally be raining cats and dogs at my house!

I stumbled down the stairs this morning to make coffee, only to find Finnoula staring out the front door at the strangest sight. My neighbor’s Corgi puppies had gotten loose (again) and were sitting on my porch curiously watching two kittens slumbering away in my new boots. It was all very sweet and surreal… until Finn’s protective nature got the better of her and she started to bark, setting off a chain reaction of puppy yapping, scared-kitty screeching, fur flying… what a way to start the morning! 😯

Cuteness Overload

JIAN makes some of the cutest animals on the grid, and I was delighted to receive these sweet kitten-booties as the latest group gift. Two versions are included in the box: one for wearing, and this adorbs decor version for rezzing (only 2 LI). The wearable version has a wide-awake kitty on each boot, and not only do they ride along, but they even move and meow (which you can turn off, once you’ve had enough of that)! Both versions have a texture-change menu so you can choose from 3 boot colors, 9 kitty colors, and resize to your liking.

As with all JIAN products, these kitty boots are amazingly well detailed. Best part? The group is FREE to join so you can pick up the kitty boots as well as several other group gifts that are still available. 🙂

Water Cooler Break

Water Cooler Break_001

Busy working… sort of.

It was a busy day at the office and I needed a quick break so I stopped by the water cooler. I managed to get in a little social networking while I was there as well… like talking about my latest outfit find at Prism. I hunted down this 1L Winter Blows Hunt gift in no time flat to add to my wardrobe just the other day and it is perfect for a day at the office. My colleagues agreed.

What you get.

The outfit is one piece mesh, belt included, and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system bod. I paired it with a pair of black boots for a complete look, but you could always go with heels. For 1L and some hunting time, this dress is a steal.

Back to work for me… break time is over!

Going dotty

Going dotty

Help! The weather’s been so dotty lately.

I don’t know what’s going on but the weather’s been acting kinda strange recently. Not so strange that it’s raining literal cats and dogs (thankfully) but it seems as if it can’t make up its mind most of the time. Some days the sky is heavy with dark clouds while on others it’s surprisingly sunny for this time of year and on other days things can flip between the two at the drop of a dime. I just can’t figure it out but anyway, at least I’ve found an outfit versatile enough to keep up with all of this odd weather.

As they say, if you can’t beat them…

Join them! I’ve gone dotty as well with the Lily outfit from MOoH! (it’s so much fun typing out this store’s name). You can always count on classic prints to get you through the day and none are more classic, or classy when it comes down to it than black and white polka dots. Personally, I found that it paired off rather well with the prim cut of this collared dress. I like fantasy clothes as much as the next Second Life(r) but it’s always great to find something that I’d actually wear outside of this virtual world.

As you can see from the picture above there are two ways of wearing the Lily outfit. The dress itself is a sleeveless number (perfect for when the sun decides to show itself) and flatters your figure by being cinched at the waist by a white belt. The dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size so you can most certainly test it out on your mesh body should you own one. If it gets chillier (or if you just feel like rocking the cute librarian look) throw on the comfy, duel toned cardigan. I simply love the little bow that holds the two sides together, as it just adds to the girlish look of the whole outfit. The cardigan comes in five standard mesh sizes as well (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size. Both outfits have their own spiffy alpha layer and not only do they help with the fit, they also ensure that you can wear the cardigan with a separate outfit as well.

The Lily outfit is on sale at the MOoH! main store until the 26th of the month and is priced at 85L. That’s a little over the FabFree price cap but if you join the MOoH! group as I’ve already done (-crosses another thing off the bucket list-) you can take advantage of the free 150L gift card that’s available to members to get this dress for free. MOoH! has a one-time join fee of 100L but it’s a great investment in the long run as the gift cards are given out monthly. If you haven’t picked it up already, the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at MOoH! has been changed out recently.

Heeled and tasseled

With Commander being a bit grumpy recently I’ve had to stay home to make sure he doesn’t get up to any mischief. Of course, that also means more time to poke about the SL Marketplace. I came across these pretty pair of strappy heels from Ferina’s Creations and immediately thought about wearing them with the Lily outfit. There’s nothing like wearing a bit of red with a monochrome outfit to make things pop. I simply adore the detail of the tassel on these heels though the best part about them is that you’ll only have to spend 1L to add them to your collection. Note however that these heels are made for Slink high feet only.

A little bit of bounce

It seems that I’ve been more inclined towards shorter hairstyles recently doesn’t it? It’s nice to switch things up for a change and it helps that there have been not a few great offers for shorter hairstyles. One such is the free gift that Analog Dog has out for the January round of Gacha Guardians. I’ve come to associate wild, fun curls with this brand and the Charlotte hair certainly did not disappoint. This bouncy hairstyle has a retro feel about it, acting as the perfect topper for the Lily outfit. In the gift package, you’ll receive a bald base, an alpha layer as well as an easy to use hud that lets you choose from twelve fantasy colors as well as control the ombre fades and tints of the hair. There are loads of other gifts out at the Gacha Guardians event and you’ll need to be part of the Gimme Gacha group to be able to scoop them up. Don’t worry though the group is free to join so all you need is a group slot and you’re good to go!

Another group gift

Speaking of free group gifts, there’s a new one currently out at Hello Dave. The pictures don’t do them any justice but the Spot Me manicure in nude that I’m wearing pairs up very nicely with the entire outfit as well. Personally, I find that Hello Dave puts out manicures with very interesting designs and it certainly doesn’t hurt that they change out their free group gifts on the regular too. The group is free to join as well so go ahead and treat yourself to a mani and pedi! Hello Dave nails work with Slink mesh hands and some mesh hands that are compatible with the Omega system. While you’re there at the store don’t forget to pick up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well. Two of the sets have been blogged by Kat {HERE} and myself {HERE} and you can get a closer look {HERE}.

And that’s a wrap for today! The weather’s looking pretty dodgy again so I’m retreating back indoors. Oh, but before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Hello Dave group gift I was talking about.
