A Slight Navigational Mishap

Wrong Turn

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to head to another beach to continue enjoying our long weekend, but, sadly, his navigational skills are not quite up to par with his fantastic nose.  We got hopelessly lost after a wrong turn, and while trying to find the correct route, ran out of gas.  Well, if I have to be sidelined, at least I can be stranded in style…

Free Shorts?  Count Me In!

Before leading us down the wrong path somewhere along the way, Ripley sniffed out a great find at the [WellMade] in world store, so I can’t be too upset with him for his co-piloting abilities.  In addition to ten other free gifts for WellMade group members, the generous designer has set out these cuffed Natallie shorts for free.  Best of all, the WellMade group is completely free to join.  Adorned with two columns of triple buttons, the shorts fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  The gift package includes a color change HUD that enables you two choose between this deep crimson shade and a navy blue hue.  If you don’t have a group slot available, you can also pick up these summertime staples at the [WellMade] Marketplace shop for only 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Textures and Colors Galore

Back when The Cart Wash Sale was in full swing, I blogged about a cute little white Babado top in my post {HERE}.  Since that time, Bacidalucia Oh has created a new version which includes a HUD enabling you to select one of four texture options and 18 color choices.  To coordinate with my shorts, I opted for a deep red shade with the first of the four background prints, but there are so many other available combinations….all for only 49L.  You get the same off the shoulder fit, and softly draped fabric, finished with ric-rack trim as the original, with multiple options for customization.  To add this cropped top to your inventory, teleport over to the Baci shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

A Trail of Ripley Snacks

Instead of handing a map to my hound with a nose for fashion, I probably would have been better off leaving a trail of Ripley snacks to follow, kind of Hansel and Gretel style.  Live and learn, I guess…  Now, do any of you wonderful readers have a gallon of gas you can spare? 😉 Until my next post, happy shopping!

Punk Rock Girl

A Tale of Two Cats

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the hunt trail again.  This time, the pupster and I sought out little white skulls during the Brii Underground Punk Rock Girl Hunt.  Each of the ten punk rock themed prizes in this hunt cost 1L and feature a complete outfit.   At the landing point, there is a board which displays the variety of hunt gifts and also a hint giver, which I found very useful.

Punk’s Not Dead…

…at least that’s what the Lokele t shirt claims.  The black side-knotted top features a gray, guitar-wielding skeleton, which definitely gives the shirt an edgy feel.  The asymmetrical, cropped hemline provides a sexy glimpse of your tummy.  Gray and black plaid capris with white stitching and riveted pockets coordinate beautifully with the theme of the outfit.  To wrap it all up, flat black sneakers with dark gray socks complete the look.  Quite a bit of care was taken with the amount of detail in these shoes, from the suede texture with white stitching, and the untied laces, to the herringbone-patterned soles.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh pants in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Mesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layers for top and shorts for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh pants in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Omega Lokele Make Up Catwa Head Jessica (not worn in my photo)

A New Multi Hue Updo

The edgy feel of my new outfit called for a different style hair than my usual, and the Zoe updo from EscalateD fit the bill perfectly. Completely free to Fab Free group members, this hairstyle features long tresses gathered in a large bun at the back of your head.  A few wispy strands dangle realistically down near your ears and the back of your neck.  The dark ebony hue of the hairstyle is brightened by highlights which provide vibrant pops of color.  A texture change HUD allows you to customize the base color and streak color of the highlights, offering a range of 15 colors across the rainbow spectrum.  I decided to use purple tinted eye shadow to play off the streaks in my hair.  It’s not a look I’d wear every day, but it made for a fun change up!

Ripley and I will return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Starry Night \\ Updo – Ombre

Skin – Essences – Thea (Catwa & Omega) – Currently @Kustom 9

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island.  I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world.  I found the perfect poses for times like these.  Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers.  Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package.  Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included:  

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

Life is Uncertain……..Eat Dessert First

It's Time for Ice Cream

Hello there, Fabulouses!  With warmer temperatures, I couldn’t resist stopping for a refreshingly delicious ice cream cone on my way home tonight.  When I scooped her up for a cuddle, this adorable pup decided to sneak a sample from my cone for herself.  The little rascal!

Vintage Vixen

Charlote, my pretty floral frock, is a group gift for VIP members from Furtacor. (updated landmark)  Until May 1st, this group costs nothing to join, so you can scoop up this strapless spring dress for free (after May Day, joining the VIP group will set you back 100L).  I love the vintage rose texture and the way the hem of the dress is flouncy and asymmetrical.   Packed with details such as vertical piping to draw the eye upward, and a pleated skirt, this little number is sure to become a summer favorite of mine.  The gift also includes a HUD with 25 textures (6 plain and 19 prints) to choose from.  The bodice and skirt can be the same pattern, or colored separately.

Sizes and Compatibility

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Texture change HUD

Add Some Glitter and Shine

To  accessorize my outfit, I tucked a pink rose behind my ear, and slipped on some chandelier-style earrings.  My Sparkle Rose was a bargain for only 30L at the Fukin Cute store on the Marketplace.  The package included a purple, a pink, and a white mesh rose.  I opted to wear just one, but you can add all three flowers if you wish.  With a bit of basic editing, I adjusted the position of the posey to fit just where I wanted.  My heart-shaped, dangling earrings from Elemental Earth Designs added more sparkle, and a playful touch of movement.  Versatile, texture change beads make this pair of earrings seem like a set of six in one for only 75L.

About the Puppy Eating Ice Cream… 

Shhhh! It's a Secret

I’m hoping that a certain canine someone doesn’t get upset by my solo ice cream escapade tonight.  Back in his younger days, we used to stop at a local creamy stand on our way home from obedience class for the “Doggie Delight” special.  (I wasn’t above a little bribery now and then).  It must have worked, because we earned the “Most Improved” award at the end of the course.   To make up for stopping without him, I’ll take Ripley out for a cool treat this weekend, but until then, can we keep this just between us?

Happy Shopping!

~ Kat and Ripley (that will be a DOUBLE Doggie Delight, please!)

A Spring Day at the Shore

Spring Day at the Shore

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are enjoying our weekend get away to Maison de l’amitie!  We’ve been spending our days lazing on the beach, watching sailboats zigzag across the harbor, while seagulls circle overhead.  I could definitely get used to this!

I Like Vintage…..a Lot!

My worn and comfy vintage jeans capris today are a free gift for Third Life group members from the Red Room.  Although joining the Third Life group will set you back 10L, there are multiple gifts around the grid from a variety of designers for lucky group members, so it’s a worthwhile investment.  With a soft, faded denim that hugs every curve, rolled cuffs and a belted waistline, these pants are perfect for a casual day at the beach.  In addition to the gray-blue denim version, the capris also come with a texture change HUD for the fabric and belt, offering a range of possible combinations.  The gentle hue and frayed areas of the jeans complemented my white lace-trimmed Ivy cami from Pretty Please.  With a budget-friendly price tag of only 65L, this cute, feminine top is sure to become a summer time favorite.  I couldn’t resist scooping up the cami in several other pastel shades as well.  Together, these two vintage finds created the perfect outfit for a lovely spring day on the beach with my pal.

Sizes and Compatibility:

Capris:  Freya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Maitreya, and Isis

Top:  Shirt and Undershirt layer for classic avatars, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega

There Goes the E.B.!

As the Easter Bunny completed his last minute deliveries, he paused and waved, twitching his cute little nose in our direction.  I couldn’t resist pointing him out to Ripley.  This adorable pose is perfect for alerting my pal to the E.B.’s presence, as well as for featuring the Bento hands that are part of my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 50L at the Reve Obscura Marketplace store, you’ll get the pose as well as an adorable mesh dog (in case you don’t have an ever-present canine companion like I do).  I love the way “Spring Day” reflects that special relationship between a girl and her BFF!

Back to the Beach!

Sunshine in My Pocket

Hello again, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I had so much fun on Monday, we decided to return to the shore for some more R&R.  I packed a bag with sunscreen, a towel, a magazine and, of course, Ripley snacks, then we headed off to one of our favorite sims – NorderNey.

Flirty and Free

I slipped on the latest free Fabulously Free in SL group gift from BlackRose before leaving home.  Bold and bright, with a white, black and dark teal color scheme, this strappy mini dress was perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  Its figure-hugging form will flatter any avatar, for sure.  I liked how the vertical stripes of dark teal at the bodice provided a touch of contrast to the otherwise horizontal bands of color, and directed the eye upward.  With plenty of versions for mesh bodies, plus mesh sizes for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you.

What’s Included:

  •  Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L and alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…
You Give Me Butterflies 3

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!

Soap Is Slippery Business, That Ain’t No Lye!

Snapshot_003
Good afternoon Fabulous Readers! Today I am stopping in to share news about a new group gift with a fatpack of dresses and tell you a little real life secret of mine.

Fatpacking Hali

Serena recently blogged about a gorgeous group gift at Miss Chelsea [HERE], and they have released an awesome fatpack of the jersey dresses called Hali as shown below.  This group is 100L to join, but between the gown that Serena previously showed that is still available and this fun fatpack, it’s worth every little linden you’ll have to part with to join.

Sizes included:

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

My Undirty Little Secret

I am sure you all know that my biggest shopping crutch in Second Life is probably… hair, and that is a sweet spot for many of us girls here on the grid, but we all have real life shopping crutches too, and one of mine…  is handmade soap!

I can’t get enough of the bubbly stuff.  I have stacks and baskets, and bags full and still buy more.  On occasion I’ll even make some myself!  Anyways, I pretty much “SQUEEEE-ed” when I came across the new Soap Collection Gacha Set by Kraftworks at this round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room, I couldn’t help myself!  This machine is just 50L per play and offers 9 commons and 1 rare (the scale).

I really thought the slippery soap should have been the rare, because it’s so funny.  I did another little GIF to show you what happens when you rez the Slippery Soap and sit on it.
