High Tides And Good Vibes

High Tides n Good Vibes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  After my last post {HERE}, Ripley and I returned to Brii Underground’s Surf Girl Hunt and did some more sleuthing.  As a youngster, I loved collecting seashells, and this hunt revived childhood memories of trips to the shore with my family.  Under my parents’ watchful eyes, I would traipse up and down the beach, plastic pail in hand, gathering my briny “treasures.”

A Casual Outfit You Will Treasure

After I pried open the clam shell from Brii Underground, I uncovered the Leidiane Beach Outfit, which was perfect for a day of beach combing.  A pair of denim shorts and an island themed, cropped t-shirt, complete with palm trees, gulls, and crashing waves form the basis of the costume.  To ward off the brisk ocean breezes, a dark blue, plaid over shirt completes the look.  This is definitely the type of clothing I would choose for a weekend get away in real life – comfortable and carefree.  Since I have a habit of wading out into the water to gather the perfect mollusk for my collection, I chose to slip on flip flops rather than the light blue platform sneakers which are part of the hunt gift.  For only 1 little Linden dollar, you get a complete look packed inside that tiny shell!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh outfits for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Leidiane Platform Sneakers (not shown)
  • Omega applier with make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light (not shown)

Sadly, those precious days with my parents are now only in the past.  Lost in memories and nostalgia as I listened to the crashing ocean waves, I was glad to have my loyal pupster by my side.  When I am feeling blue, there is no greater comfort than the silent, devoted companionship of my sweet boy.  Until my next post, fabulous readers, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Can I make a connection?

Can I make a connection?

Another bright and sunny day

Well, it looks like the weather’s perfect for Valentine’s and while Commander’s distracted with chasing butterflies, I decided that it would be a good time to sneak in some headshot practice. If you’ve been following Love’s blog posts (here and here) recently, you’ll have been clued in about the Alaskametro hunt going on right now at Free Dove. It’s not a hunt to pass up on (Free Dove also runs two more free hunts concurrently at their location) but needless to say, I got wholly distracted by all the other free goodies that you can find there as soon as I teleported in. One of these is the Serenity skin by Alaskametro. I was immediately intrigued by this (as I always am when encountering new to me skin brands) and a look at the box told me that the skin gift package would include:

  • One classic avatar skin
  • Lipstick and Eyeshadow classic tattoo layers (worn in picture)
  • Omega skin appliers for mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system
  • Omega applier for both lipstick and eyeshadow
  • One shape

Snapping up the gift and taking a peek inside also lead me to discover that you’ll receive a bald base and eyebrow shaper as well. I’ve tried Alaskametro’s makeup and clothing in the past and the Serenity skin certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of quality. The subtle tones of the makeup provided go really well with such a sweet face and I do adore the light dusting of freckles that Serenity has. It’s certainly a skin to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Speaking of Hunts

There’s another one I’ve just started call the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. It promises to be fun though I hope I don’t get shot by any arrows in the process. One of the stops on the hunting path is Kingswood and they’re offering the Be My Valentine USB necklace as their hunt prize. This adorable and quirky necklace has an inbuilt resizer script for easier fitting and permissions are set to copy if (like me) you’d like to make backups before embarking on any modifications. I love how well detailed this necklace is, from the symbols on the USB to the little heart charm to the tag that reads Be My Valentine, it almost makes me wish I had this necklace in real life as I’m always loosing my USB drives (there’s probably a black hole in my purse or something). The Stupid Cupid Hunt runs from the 3rd of February to the 28th and prizes for the hunt are set to 1L.

Get to the Sale

What’s a holiday without scampering about to a sale? If you love getting more great quality hairstyles for your inventory, Clawtooth is holding a 25% off sale for all hair packs (gachas excluded) from the 13th to 15th February (not much time so hurry down). I’m wearing the Hang It Up hairdo in the picture which is an older style but I’ve had my eye on it for a while and thought that this was a good time to snap it up!

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Valentine’s Day! I got myself saddled with a blind date (pfft) and do you think I should bring Commander along? Some girls carry pepper spray others bring animals that could potentially maul you. Decisions…decisions.

Carson with all his catchy song lyrics to go with his finds, and Love with all the gorgeous lingerie she’s been finding to share with us. I found myself oogling the pretty things and set out to find a some of my own, meanwhile getting songs stuck in my head.

Stay Classy Haters Backoff

Classy Haters
Well Hello! Welcome back Fab Free’rs, it seems only yesterday we were celebrating the New Year, and now we are already creeping up on Valentine’s Day! Even though the month of February is in full swing, there are still some January group gifts out there. I picked up two such gifts recently that were too cute to keep to them myself. So of course I am here to share! First is the January group gift at Eyelure, with the proverbial cherry on top being the January group gift at Stix.

Eyelure January Group Gift 

These cropped halter style knitted tops are just my kind of quirky cute! I like that they make a statement without being brash or brazen. Both versions are included in the January group gift still available at Eyelure. Each top is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. I also think I should point out that these tops, while they are adorable, are not for the modest, they show a generous amount of side-boob. There are sizes of each top to fit the Slink bodies, Belleza bodies, and the Maitreya Lara body.  To get your hands on this FREE gift, you’ll need to join the Eyelure in-world group which is currently FREE to join.
Mesmerize

Stix January Group Gift 

Yep, you guessed it, the fan of flirty rainbow colored eyelashes Pru is rocking are the FREE January group gift at Stix, well part of it. The FREE January group gift at Stix includes a set lash appliers and the lovely pair of eyes also pictured. There are several appliers for the lashes, one to work with most bento heads, a Catwa applier, an Akeruka applier, a Lelutka applier, an applier for Eve, and one for Genesis heads. The pink “hearted” eyes are perfect for  Valentine’s Day looks.  They come in a mesh set, and applier options for Catwa, Genesis, and Omega eyes.  There’s also a classic system layer. As usual, the group gift at Stix is very applier generous! You’ll find this gift and several others at the Stix main location. The Stix (Pixy Stix) group is FREE to join.

I hope you like this fun casual look, here are the details, enjoy!

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Hello there Fabulouses!  The beginning of the month means new hunts have rolled in; Ripley and I donned our detective hats, and did some sleuthing for you for today’s post.  Brii Underground Wear is hosting the Surf Girl Hunt from February 1st – 28th with 10 hunt gifts concealed in sea shells scattered around the store.  Each shell is priced at one linden and contains an entire outfit.  1L for a complete costume from clothes to footwear?  Count me in!

Meet Me at The Beach

The first mollusk we uncovered contained the Itapema outfit.  With a sheer, flowing, sleeveless jacket layered over a crop top, brightly hued capri-style leggings, and glittering golden sandals, you will be ready for a day of beach combing.  As soon as I saw the jacket on my avatar, I pictured the long hem fluttering in a gentle sea breeze as I strolled along the sand.  I really like how the muted hue of the top and jacket is livened up by the colorful stripes on the pants.  The metallic sheen on the heels included in the prize box echoes the golden decorations on the top, and really pulls the entire outfit together.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Golden sandals
  • Make up for classic avatars and an Omega make up applier for Catwa mesh heads (not worn in my picture)

More Prizes Yet to Come…

With 9 more hunt items to ferret out, Ripley and I won’t be “homeward bound” for some time.  We have our work cut out for us, but he’s already tugging on the leash with *that* look in his eyes.  I have a feeling it won’t be too long before we return with another outfit to share with you.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley, the Ace Detective)

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

purple dress_012
Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  “Not all those who wander are lost.”  One of my favorite quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien, which lends itself well to today’s post.  The wanderlust bug bit Ripley and I today.  We decided to hit the road in this retro VW bus.  When we reached The Yorkshire Dales sim, we pulled over to camp for the night in our vintage vehicle.  While I lounged in comfort, daydreaming about our adventures to come, Rip cavorted across the grassy meadow, sniffing out bunny trails.

A Passion for Purple

Along our journey, the pup and I had pulled up outside the Petry Model Store, and meandered through the boutique to peruse the inventory.   When I saw the collection of group gifts on the wall, I quickly joined the free Petry Model Store group, and started shopping.  This lovely violet-hued dress was the first free group gift to catch my eye.  As you could probably tell from the hue of my blog post headings, purple is one of my favorite colors.  As soon as I saw this mini, I knew it was my next outfit to blog.  From the front, it appears as though the dress provides solid coverage (which it does in all the right areas), but the side and back views offer a sexy peek of skin.  It features a plunging v-neck, sash at the waist, and a slightly gathered skirt with an asymmetrical hemline.  Before I detail the contents of the gift package, here’s a full, front view picture:

purple dress_011

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza applier for the dress
  • Optional Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega sock applier (not shown in my pictures)

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my look, I slipped on an amethyst pendant from Elemental Earth Designs, which I found on the Marketplace for only 50L.  Its teardrop shaped, sculpted gem is a perfect match for the color of my dress, and the price was right up my alley, too.  The simple styling of the pendant along with its leather cord, provided just the right amount of sparkle while still allowing my dress to shine on center stage.

Time to Rescue the Bunnies

I think it’s time to reign in the pupster, and give the bunnies some well deserved peace and quiet.  After relaxing next to the campfire with a cold beverage for me, and a refreshing bowl of water for the rascally rabbit chaser, we’ll hopefully spot a shooting star to wish on before we call it a night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Free as a Bird (or Two)

Be Kind. Even on Your Bad Days

Well, hello there Fabulouses!  On this cool, gray day, Ripley and I set out to explore the Whimberly sim, and we met up with some old friends we had first encountered waddling up a ramp into their washtub pond {HERE} over on the Painter’s Link sim.  As you can see, they are all grown up now, and have migrated to a home of their own away from Mama and Papa.

A Thick, Knitted Sweater to Ward off the Chill

Even though it was a brisk cloudy day, I stayed cozy and warm throughout my visit with Cali and Abigail, thanks to my free sweater from Luziefee.  My Tula knitted shirt is the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from designer Luzie Cheng of Luziefee.  I discovered three versions tucked inside the package – red, blue, and  green.  Since its bands of cool colors reminded me of the beach glass I used to collect as a child, I opted to wear the green sweater for my photo. Each color pack comes in a variety of sizes from XXS to L, so you are sure to find just the right fit for your avatar.  The texture of the chunky knitting is quite realistic looking!  Also included in the present is a Nail HUD so you can apply perfectly matching striped polish to your fingertips if you so desire.  Sadly, I didn’t notice the polish until after I had snapped my photo.  To add Tula to your sweater collection, simply switch over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, pop on over to Luziefee, and click the gift board.  It’s easy and completely free!

Glitter Glass

Ripley must have known I was in a beach glass state of mind, because he approached me with the Powder Blue Glitter Glass Necklace from Evica dangling from his mouth.  He nudged my leg and offered me his Fabulous Find.  As you may already know, my boy has a nose for bargain-priced fashion finds, and today was no exception.  He had discovered this gorgeous piece of jewelry on the Marketplace for a mere 50L.  After slipping the bauble around my neck, I rewarded the pup with his favorite Ripley snack, and we shared a celebratory high-five.

Complete the Look

The other day, when I logged on, I was happy to see an offline IM that had been left by Fabulous Reader, Rowan Carroll, telling me about a nail art shop I had never been to before called The Odd Eyed Cat.  As soon as I read the words “the entire store of appliers is under 75L,” I teleported so quickly Ripley almost couldn’t track me down!  There is an adorable pink, red and black striped Gillian polish on the wall for only 1L (definitely scooped that one up!) and tons of other color combinations for either Maitreya or Slink nails throughout the store.  When I spotted the Tabitha Nail Applicator in Neutral Blankes, I was entranced by its metallic, gleaming finish.  The blue tone was a lovely match for my sea glass sweater.  I only spent 59L for 12 hues of polish in this one package.  It was a great deal!  Thank you for the tip, Rowan! 🙂

Off to Face the Middle of the Week…

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, and the weekend will coast ever closer after that.  This week has already seemed extra-long to me, even though it’s only Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off.  Until my next post, happy shopping, my friends!

Now is the Time….

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have quick, time sensitive post to share with you today featuring a free group gift.  The group is free to join only until January 31st, so don’t delay if you would like to scoop up this lovely gift for free.

While Rip and I wandered about SL, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest group gift from MMC Store.  As soon as I opened the texture included in the notice, and had a peek at the Celline dress, I knew she was destined for my inventory.  Quick as a wink, I teleported over to the shop, joined the group, and scooped up Celline, as well as the 5 other group gifts featured on the wall just inside the door.

Little.  Black.  Dress.

Every girl needs a slinky, black dress and this little number is just about as perfect as you can get.  With a daring neckline, sexy cut out, satiny fabric, and darling ties in the back, Celline hugs your curves in all the right places.   Simple enough to wear to work, yet easily accessorized and glammed up for an evening date, this dress is a valuable addition to your SL closet.  The 16-texture HUD included with the gift opens up a wide range of possibilities beyond merely a black dress.  As of January 29th, the group is free to join, and the dress is one of six free group gifts available to members.  As I stated earlier, the free join is for a limited time only, so if you have a hankering for this frock, I’d suggest you pop on over to the MMC Store right away.  After the 31st, the join fee will increase to 50L.  Even at that price, this dress is well worth the fee!

What’s Included

  • Fitted Mesh for Classic Avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic Avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Eve (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), The Mesh Project, and Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
  • Color change HUD packed with 16 textures

That’s it for now, my friends.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:
C&CH2 Pic-Firelight Creations

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

A Little Goth1c0 Never Hurt Anyone

Goth1c0
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Once again it seems the week has gotten away from me. I am sensing a recurring theme in my world as of late, I never seem to know where all my time goes! I suppose that means I’m having fun, you know the saying: time flies when you’re having fun. Whatever the case, one thing I can say for sure, I do think this look is tons of fun and just the right side of sinister.

Goth1c0 Group Gift 

The mesh dress Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift from Goth1c0. Though it doesn’t appear this is a new gift (the packaging says July), I still like it a lot. I enjoy the way the dress shows off curves without showing too much. The Goth1c0 group is FREE to join, so the dress is a steal of a deal. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a color change hud so that you can change the color of the material in the sexy corseted side panels. There are 6 total color options, 2 of which are solid colors while the rest are patterned.

RedMint
RedMint Group Gift

You can always count on RedMint to have hairstyles that suit more alternative looks. This silver-blue toned messy up do is the most recent group gift at RedMint. The FREE gift is in this single color only.  The RedMint group is FREE to join, and there are several past group gifts available. To get this gift, you’ll want to make sure you’re in the hair studio section, if not just use the signage on the wall at the landing point to teleport to the hair studio.

Slack Girl Marketplace Special 

Alright, so I have to say that my closeup photo does not do this eye shadow from SlackGirl justice. There are little jewels under the lower lid that give this shadow a unique look. You’ll find a full eye shadow set by SlackGirl on the Marketplace for just 10 linden. With the set you’ll receive classic system layers for each of the 8 color options. You’ll also get an applier hud for Catwa, Akeruka, and Omega compatible heads. If you’re even half as into makeup as I am, this is a must have!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
