March On!

March On_001

March on!

We are marching into the last week of March, and I have my gold shoes that I found at the end of the rainbow… or to be more specific, I found them as part of the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. For just 1L and a little hunting time for the icon, you can pick these pretty gold pumps up.

For your 1 little Linden, you’ll get heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet all in one package for that tiny little sum. It’s well worth the trip to the Lindy Modern & Retro. Plus while you are there, pick up the other hunt gifts. There are many out! One is free, and the rest are all 1L as well. You can stock up on your shoe wardrobe!

A touch of green…

I needed a dress for my new dress shoes, so I picked up the pretty green dress from Ass Kicking Angels. It is the free FabFree group gift out for March! It includes both this lovely dress as well as the matching necklace (which has a pretty clover attached to it).

You’ll get the following sizes:

  • Standard classic avatar
  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Dress with My Name on It

Spring Flowers_001

I’m baaaaaaack…….

I’m back and I missed all of you! I stopped by one of my favorite places to get free gifts, EvelineInTheBox, and was pleasantly surprised that the current free gift bears my name… Astrid! And it’s a pretty spring dress with flowers and a waist tied bow that isn’t too outlandish but instead is just right! As always, the EvelineInTheBox group is free to join, making this pretty dress free too!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It’s good to be home.

It’s nice to take breaks, but it’s good to be home too. I missed my blogging family and all of you readers. I hope this free spring time dress makes you as happy as it made me when I came across it this morning. Here’s hoping there is a sunny sky where you are today!

Have Love Will Travel

Hitting The Road

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am unsure if it is the warm spring weather or this new outfit I just picked up for free at The Designer Circle Anniversary round, but I was feeling the need to get out and stretch my legs.  Now… Where to go?  I stopped in at Kathryn’s to see if she and Ripley would like to join me, but it looks like Ripley has already led her off on another adventure of their own!  I think I’ll just close my eyes and point to a spot on the map.

It’s Worth The Trip

If you like the outfit I am in today, you should know that the Casey Outfit by Finale Couture – that includes the jacket, pants and Slink add-on shoes is a free gift (priced at 0L!) at this Anniversary Round of The Designer Circle.  In fact… many of the participating designers have freebies or dollarbies you can pick up, just set out on the ground of their displays.

Casey Outfit Sizes & Compatibility:

  • Shoes: Slink
  • Jacket – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer + Fitmesh
  • Pants – Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer

Promise of Spring

Promise of Spring

 

Out like a lamb…

As we head into the last week of March, the weather in my part of the world is beginning to show signs that spring has finally arrived. We decided to take a walk (without the dogs in tow, they had their walk earlier today) to look at some of our newest additions to our ever growing menagerie of animals. While it is still cool outside, the sun is warm enough for us to shed our jackets and toss them over our shoulders…

The newest group gift at ::K:: is the Justin Accent Jean Jacket for both him and her. Either sex can choose to wear either the pink or the grayish blue jacket as a nice accessory piece. I am also wearing a gift from The Menstuff Lounge. Black Label Menswear has made a gift of the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers.  The gifts at The Menstuff Lounge are free but to join the group it will cost a one time fee of $50L.

Oh look, the lambs are kissing…. 🙂

Before Dawn

Snapshot_002
Why. Is. Morning. So. Early?

As you can see…  Even on the best of days I am very much not a morning person.   Most mornings, it is pure luck if I can manage to pour a cup of coffee and return the cream to the fridge instead of the cup cupboard (has truly happened so many times).  He is up at the crack of BEFORE dawn even on the weekend, puttering around in the kitchen doing whatever he does in there (on a positive note, I do smell coffee already made 🙂 ).

The Calm Before…

Pulling the covers over my head, I try to muffle out the sounds of doors creaking, kitchen cupboards slamming, and dishes clanging.  Even the dogs are grumbling and huffing with disdain of the way too early morning activity going on.  Finally I can hear him making his way to the door and I’m thinking to  myself…  “finally. silence.”.  I hear him digging out his shoes, and taking his coat out of the closet and creeping out the back door to the man cave.

The Storm…

As the door shuts behind him, the dog leash hanging on the hook beside the door falls to the ground…  My eyes squeeze shut tight instantly knowing and bracing for what was about to happen.   ALL of the dogs jump up and run around the bedroom six times, wagging and panting, collar jingling and barking with excitement, because that is all the signal they need for “It’s time for a W.A.L.K” (I spell out the word walk to avoid the craziness,  but they have learned to spell it out).  I tried calling for him, but he had already made his way out of earshot.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, I pick up the littlest one before she gets trampled on in the pre-W.A.L.K mayhem, dig up some clothes and head out for what is hopefully a very uneventful walk…  Gooood morning!

Back To Bed In My NEW Group Gift?

With any luck I’ll be able to slip back into my comfy new night shirt for another hour or two of sweet dreams when I get back.  I picked up the Miranda Chemise Group Gift at !gO! as a group gift.  The !gO! group tends to do a handful of gifts a year and on occasion sends out instore credit offers, so the 50L join fee was no issue for me!  I have found it has more than made up for it.

Available Sizes:

  • Standard Fitmesh & Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

With a Little Help From My Friends

Wild and Free

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I met some new friends today at The Mill and paused to capture a snapshot with them.  Mr. Ears was shy and didn’t want to look at the camera, but his pal Blackie happily obliged.  Isn’t Chippers just the cutest little chipmunk ever?  He is part of the pose pack “Snuggly” from Nani that I discovered on the Marketplace for only 50L.

My outfit today is a free group gift from Machka Design, and includes the darling floral shorts and knit cropped top shown in the picture, plus cowboy boots and a shirt that ties around your waist, which I opted not to wear today.  The color of the top reminded me of pale morning sunshine.  I like its high collar and sleeveless design.  Echoing the flowers scattered in the field at The Mill, the pretty botanical pattern on the shorts was perfect for a casual day spent exploring nature.  The Machka Design group is completely free to join.  To add the Santa Rosa outfit to your inventory, just switch over to the group tag, teleport to the shop, walk inside, and tap the box on the floor just inside the doorway.

What’s Included in the Gift Package:

  • Mesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for shorts
  • Knit tank top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Alpha layer for cowboy boots
  • Shirt tied around waist in XS, S, M, L, XL

Precious Things

Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Grab it while it’s free…

Dropping a quick post out for you all with some information you may enjoy.  The Resun group is currently FREE to join. I remember stopping by there a few times after seeing  items on the feeds (yes, I do look at the feeds from time to time) but never picking anything up because the group fee was too pricey for my wallet. But have no fear, right now you can join for FREE and pick up the latest group gift, the Martin Slim Shirt. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL and also comes with a texture change HUD to get just the right color. Things like this only happen once in a blue moon…

Spring is in the Air

Spring Posies

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….thank goodness!  This has been quite an eventful week in RL for me, and I’m really looking forward to the weekend.  While Ripley and I were out exploring, a group notice from Fabulously Free in SL (my *fav* group ever!) popped on my screen, detailing the newest free group gift from Eloise Baker.  Of course, after one peek at the photo, I high-tailed it over to the Time Portal sim as fast as my fingers could click the link!

Lavender Love

My spring floral dress in a lovely purple hue is the free gift offered to FabFree members at Eloise Baker.  This sweet, strappy feminine frock features a slightly flared and ruffled skirt.  With pastel-colored, contrasting flower-dotted panels, and a curve hugging fit, this dress is sure to flatter any figure.  Its timeless, classic design can be accessorized for vintage role play, yet also is perfect for a casual, modern look.  Soft and graceful, this dress is definitely one of my most favorite Fabulous Finds!

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Belleza, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

To Top it All Off

To add an elegant touch, and shield my eyes from the bright sunshine, I donned a wide-brimmed summer sun hat, which I scooped up for a mere 29L at the MESHit store on the Marketplace.  Since it’s completely customizable, it was easy to edit the color and texture of the hat so that it perfectly coordinated with my dress.  It seems as if they were made for each other!  I love the mysterious aura I get with the angle of the brim covering my eyes.   With its reasonable price, and flexible options for color and textures, this versatile topper is sure to find its way into many blog pictures in the future.

Better Days are Coming…

… namely Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  I hope the rest of your week passes smoothly, and you have plenty of free time to visit boutiques or do whatever you like in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
