Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

All That I Am

All That I Am

“All that I am, and all that I hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

A Gift to Celebrate Mothers Everywhere

The quote above is so true!  There is no love like that of a mother for her child.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Hilly Haalan has set out these deep pink heels and matching clutch as a free gift for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions Group, which is completely free to join.  The Mitzi Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink high mesh feet feature an open toe box to allow your tootsies room to wiggle and get a breath of fresh air.  With a semi-transparent body, and delicate ankle straps, this pair of summer footwear is elegant and comfortable.  I love the raspberry pink shade!  Coordinating perfectly with the shoes, the polka-dotted Mitzi clutch is just the right size for stowing a tube of lipstick and essentials for the day.

When in Doubt……Wear Polka Dots

The strappy, slip-style Pink Dot Dress from Kendrasy Creations harmonized beautifully with the playful, pink, polka dot theme established by my purse.  Falling to below the knees, this frock features a deeply scooped back, and a pretty, scalloped edge on the bodice.  Its figure-hugging cut emphasizes all your curves, but keeps you covered in all the right places.  An added, fitted skirt panel comes with permission to modify so that it molds perfectly to your mesh body, but I didn’t need to adjust it at all for my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 60L, you can wrap yourself in this sensual summer dress, which fits both classic and mesh avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Omega
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Pure Elegance

To shield my eyes from the glare of midday, I opted to add a chic, white, floppy sun hat that I discovered for only 69L on the Marketplace at L&R Studios.  Its snowy, white suede material provided elegant sun protection as I strolled along the streets of Maison de L’amitie with my pal Ripley by my side.  Often, I need to edit and stretch hats to get them to cover all my hair, but I only needed to slightly adjust where this hat sat on my head for it to fit just right.

On a more personal note, tomorrow will be my first Mother’s Day in RL without my beloved Mom.  😦 I miss her so very much!  If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother with you, please give her an extra hug tomorrow if you can, in honor of my mom.  I wish I still could hug her.  Until next time, take care, my friends.

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Bright Sunshiny Day

Bright Sunshiny Day

When you call my name…

… It makes my day that much brighter… even if it’s just to pick up a gallon of milk at the market. So I’m off to the store to pick up the essentials until we can make a grocery run later this weekend….

Or just walk on by…

Today I’m showing off the Men’s Floral Taupe T-Shirt by Virtual Glitter that happens to be the 1L hunt gift in the Flowerage Hunt 2. This shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. After putting on the shirt I knew what pants shorts I wanted to wear with it. I put on the Paramilitary Shorts, the FREE L’Homme gift at Prism for Men, I originally showed [HERE] and the Black Sunglassesthe Moolto Spring Fling Hunt gift at QualityDesignZ that  I first showed [HERE].
Yeah, Yeah…I won’t forget the milk….

This Pup Has Cast a Spell On Me

puppy

Hello Fabulouses!  There’s nothing like the companionship of a canine……always willing to lend a listening ear…..that tail wagging happily when you walk through the door.  I’m so thankful for my puppy pals!  Every day, they offer unconditional love, and teach me to live in the moment.

Time for a Little Side Trip

Yesterday, when I saw a group notice pop up about the new Spring Blue dress at Arcane Spellcaster, Ripley and I lived in the moment, and chose to detour over to the shop to pick up the lovely, free frock.  Featuring an ice blue top layer, and a deep, sky-blue skirt panel, this little number is packed with visual details such as the patterned, wrapped texture of the bodice panel which ends in a beaded fringe dangling down.  Its asymmetrical hemline, and slender shoulder straps emphasize your figure. In order to add Spring Blue to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group, which will set you back 250L, but there are multiple gifts available, including a special 1500 member Amosa Club structure, so you get a lot of return on your investment.

IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!
