Sn@tching Some Zzzs

snatchlb

I know… I am beginning to sound like a broken Sn@tch record today, but there is just so much new exciting news at Sn@tch this week for us freebie lovers and I want to share it!  If you have seen my other two recent Sn@tch posts and have still not gone to stalk those lucky boards you might be inspired to make the trip after hearing that the Nikola Gown and Scarf Set that I am wearing in this post is also a free lucky board prize – IN A FULL FATPACK!

Forest Maiden or Posh Princess

The leafy print on the Nikola Gown & Scarf Set inspired me to accessorize it into a fancy forest maiden outfit, but I can see this item being suitable for a posh fairy princess or even very classy formal attire for a night out of dancing.

I have actually changed my clothes so many times today catching up on blog posts, that I am plum out of energy for doing forest maideny things, so I’m having a little rest instead :).

Outfit Details:

The dress and scarf are separate but are both included so you can decide to wear them together or on their own.  Everything comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and the folder is packed with colour choices!!

  • Aqua
  • Blue
  • Gold (shown)
  • Jade
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Silver

So Enchanting

Magical_002

A touch of fantasy.

The Tie the Knot Hunt (which runs until March 24th) is all about weddings… but I came across a free prize (in all the popular mesh body sizes plus a quality alpha) that would make not only a lovely wedding dress, but also would be perfect for roleplay. So I found myself adventuring to find the perfect setting and backdrop to show it off.

I ended up in a field of lavender wildflowers, that perfectly set off the lavender ties in the corset part of this dress. For 0L, I imagine you’ll want to pick up this beautiful gown from K&A Design too. Just stop by K&A Design and search for the wedding ring box and this lovely dress is yours free.

Sizes in the box:

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

Bring on the Night

Bring on the Night

Hello there Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  This week, Ripley and I happened upon a new-to-us store called Klara Original Mesh.  While I explored the shop, my bargain seeking hound padded up the stairs and sniffed out this gorgeous, full length gown, which is a free gift for members of the Maitreya, Gifts, Sales & News group (completely free to join).

Stylish Evening Attire

The Eva Night Gown features a high neck in front and a floor length hemline, paired with a dramatically draped back that offers a daring glimpse of skin.  I love the simple, elegant design, the lacey texture of the fabric, and the way the gown is slightly flared at the bottom so my feet are free to move.  In addition to this free frock, the designer also has four other gifts set out for various groups, plus 6 boards which offer generous discounts on dresses for Klara Waco Style group members.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Off to Discover More Fabulous Finds

I love the weekends when Ripley and I are free to wander the grid to locate more fashions to share with our favorite readers.  I’m sure it won’t be long before we return with yet another budget friendly discovery.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams

Say you’ll remember me

Have you ever had a song that gets stuck in your head? I’ve had a run in or three with those pesky earworms that make themselves right at home and refuse to leave (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End). Sometimes you’re unlucky and it’s the most inane ditty ever (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End) and other times it’s…Taylor Swift. I’ve had Wildest Dreams bouncing about the ol’ cranium for days now and it’s even inspired this post.

Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset babe

Thankfully, I have the Fabulously Free in SL group gift list to fall back on and didn’t have to scour the grid in search of the perfect outfit to base this post around.  There’s more than one gorgeous (I wouldn’t just use the word ‘nice’ to describe them) dress on this list and what I’ve got to show you today is called Melania + Kamiri +. I don’t usually wear gowns, on account of not being able to quite pull them off besides, last time I tried someone got eaten, but this stunning number manages to detract from my chronic awkward penguin-ness by having not a few factors going for it. With its figure hugging cut and a slit in the skirt that goes right up to the hip on the left side, the Melania gown is perfect for those dramatic moments in (second) life. The way the material is gathered to the left puts to mind Grecian draped dresses as does its intricate gold trimming. Speaking of, the deep gold tones blend in nicely with the gown’s main shades of turquoise, giving it a stately feel. If I get around to visiting SL ballrooms or role-playing, this dress would certainly be my go to pick.

Sizing details:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Additional Fitmesh sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass bodies.

Included as well is a great alpha layer to help with the fitting of the dress. FabFree group gifts are as always available at no cost and you don’t have to spend any L to get your tag either. Visit this page {HERE} to get a low down on how to join up if you’re not already in the group.

Red lips and rosy cheeks, say you’ll see me again

While makeup is great, accessories do play a part in augmenting your entire look. Once again I didn’t have to look very far for jewelry as the most fitting match came in the form of the Beloved Jewelry’s FabFree group gift. The peridot gemstones of this necklace and earrings set melds beautifully with the coloring of the Melania gown and I really like the leaf-like design on both pieces as it links up well to the flowery patterns of the gown’s golden trim. In the gift package, you’ll receive a pair of earrings as well as two versions of the necklace (one with a resizer script and one without). Permissions are set to copy so you’ll be able to make backups before embarking on any modifications. This lovely and finely crafted peridot set is free with your free group tag. If you’d like a closer look at the Peridot set, check out this post {HERE}

Even if it’s just pretend

And that’s a wrap. I have to find my way down the ground level with the sun in my eyes now. Maybe I’ll meet Mr ‘Tall and handsome as hell’ on my way down, or I could lag and face plant my way off this cliff. The latter’s more likely. See you guys later!

Hurry To Legendaire!

Snapshot_002Hi Fabulouses! I had a whole other post ready to put up for you this afternoon, but came across this very time sensitive offer and wanted to get the news to you quickly, so this post jumped ahead a little bit!

HURRY TO LEGENDAIRE!

I am so not kidding!  Seriously, RUN to Legendaire and join their inworld group right now, because for a very short, very limited time the group is free to join and there are a TON of free group gifts to pick up! I am not sure how much the group usually is to join, but I do recall it was over 100L.  I don’t even want to waste a minute going on and on about what I’m wearing today because you might  miss out on the free offer, but I am wearing just one of the many group gifts available called Emily that includes the gown (with 4 different textures incuded) the necklace and earrings too!

Strangelove

Strangelove

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:

In Fine Feather

Snapshot_001
Hello FabFree! In my neck of the RL woods, the sun is shining and it’s beginning to warm up! While there is still snow trying to melt away, the birds are chirping at each other once again.  I am sure this is just a little tease of spring, but I’ll allow it to trick me just this one time so the birds and  I can enjoy it.

As Light As A Feather

The delicate and whispy pink gown you see me pictured in, if you can believe it…  is a free gift at The 30L Saturday Event.  This stunning anniversary gift comes in one fitmesh size which should fit most avatars.  You can find this beauty at the Belle Epoque display in a little pink jar with the price set to 0L.

For The Birds

My little feathered friend is courtesy of ENIIPose as they have set out their “I Love The Nature” pose as a free SL Frees & Offers group gift.  It includes a rezzable pose ball, the bird and berries.  The SLF&O group is free to join.

I hope you are enjoying your day too :).

Be My Valentine

Snapshot_002Happy Valentine’s Day to all you SLovers out there!  Whether you are spending it romancing the night away with a sloved one or curling up on the sofa with your favourite furrball, I hope it’s a great day for you.

Tonight’s The Night

If you can convince your honey to dress up all “matchy matchy” with you for the big date night tonight, make sure you check out the past notices of the Loca Como tu Madre group for a very generous free group gift for both men and ladies!  It may take a little convincing, some dragon eyes…  and possibly negotiations, but when a woman puts her mind to something, we all know there is no stopping her!

The Loca Como tu Madre shop is marketplace based, so I can’t teleport you to a store, but you can join the group by copy and pasting the following link into local chat to join and then review the past notices of the group for the gift.  secondlife:///app/group/9ad09367-24c5-391a-90d2-3eabc100c420/about

For Her

  • Be My Valentine Dress
  • Be My Valentine Slink Shoes (not shown as I am wearing my Maitreya feet)

For Him

  • Be My Valentine Suit
  • Be My Valentine Shoes

Be My Valentine

Question Of The Day

The adorable pose that I have pretty much forced upon poor Carson is called Be My Valentine and is available for just 1L in the GlamRUs Marketplace store.  It was a real steal and I think would be great for commemorating this special day with your sweetie in a snapshot or for blogging/photography purposes.

The Final Verdict

Will I be his Valentine?  How could I not after he’s jumped through all of these hoops for me?  I should be so lucky!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE ❤

Let’s Talk About Man Stuff

Man Stuff

Guys time to shine…

I truly like hunts that are just for us guys.  I don’t have to find gifts I’ll never wear (really?!? … another pink nightie?) because they are made with the fairer sex in mind. Guy hunts, guy things, guy clothes, guy toys… now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. I spent last night following the hunt path on the For Him Hunt 3. This is the first hunt I’ve completed from beginning to end since I’ve been back and I found out that I am rusty at hunting. But with patience, a bit of luck, and just a few lindens, I completed the hunt and have all kinds of goodies to show you over the next few days.

Fish in a barrel…

This look comes by way of Firelight Creations & Man Stuff (#12 on your dance card if you’re keeping track). The all-in-one Henry Suit can be yours for just $1L if you find the hunt gift in the shape of a wrench (that little bugger blended in so well 😠). This suit, with shoes included, comes with a HUD to to mix and match color combinations, right down to the buttons on the jacket. I went with the blue to match my eyes, but you can pick whatever color suits you.  Oh! And the barrel I’m leaning against… that’s the wearable box it came in, pose included. But have no fear, there is another Boom Barrel in the gift that can be used as decoration or even for target practice. The For Him Hunt 3 runs all through February.

Carson is wearing…

Outfit: Firelight Creations & Man Stuff – Henry Suit w/ Texture HUD (For Him Hunt 3 $1L)
Mesh Body: ADAM – Male Mesh Body
Hair: no.match – No Cloud
