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.  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!)

Fraternity Row

Fraternity Row

The countdown is on…

With only  a few weeks left until summer break, things are beginning to liven up here on campus. The the warmer weather is bringing study groups out to the quad, fraternity pranks are in full swing, and me, I’m just headed to the Union to hang out with friends and grab a bite to eat. All the while, I keep telling myself “Just three more weeks”…

GIVE ME A C….

Today’s collegiate look comes mostly by the way of the Marketplace.I found the Jonathon Outfit by [[>CaKe!<]] for just $1L. Wearing the University Jacket and Sneakers, I was not happy with the system jeans that were included, I stopped by Free Dove and grabbed the FREE JZ- Men’s Classic Blue Jeans by Dolome Designs. Accessorizing this look, I picked up the dollarbie Big Headphones also by [[>CaKe!!<]] on the Marketplace.
Anyone know where a kegger is happening?

A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

As Sweet as Candi

sunset_008 cropped with name stampHappy Middle-of-the-Week, Fabulouses!  This weekend, when Ripley and I were finishing up our holiday jaunt to Maison de L’amitie, a notice popped across my screen that I almost missed.  Lucky for me, my hound with a nose for fashion brought it to my attention.  I’m sure glad he did!  It featured this adorable mini dress from B SASSY.  With its feminine, floral print, side slit, and thin straps, this sexy little number will help you show off all your curves.  I really like the mesh trim that lines the dip of the bodice.  Best of all, Candi is completely free for members of the B SASSY group, which you can join for free.  As you enter the store, glance to your right, and the group gift giver is located on the floor next to the Candi Dress display.

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L with alpha layer for classic avatars

King of the Streets

Snapshot_019

Another day off…

It’s a beautiful day and I’m off work for the extended holiday weekend. What a great time to gab some brews and head down to the beach. It’s just a short trip so I’ll pedal down, strip down to my trunks and take in a few rays…

Tyger, Tyger…

Today I’m showing off a couple of gifts from our friends at Teleport Hub. By joining their group for just 10L you can get not one, but two great gifts. I found the Tiger Shirt at AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This shirt comes with a texture HUD to change the shirt color and even the tiger design color. The combinations are practically endless, guaranteed to bring out the inner tiger (or lion) in you. I also picked up the Men’s Docs at Prey, this store’s monthly group gift to Prey members. Both the gift and the group join are FREE.

Drunker than a Panda…

The other Teleport HUB gift is the King of the Streets pose by Drunk-Panda . This pose (bicycle not included) is part of a 3-pack of poses for Teleport Hub members. I needed a bike, so I headed off to the Marketplace and found Harry”s Beer Beach Cruiser by Harry’s Outdoor Living for FREE! This bike can be wearable or used as a prop.

Enjoy the rest of your day, I know I will…

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!

To the Easter Parade

Virtue

We’re late, we’re late….

… I tell her as I grab her hand and pull her out the door. She’s a bit annoyed at me as she forgot to grab her bonnet, but you know how “I’ll be ready in two minutes” turns into twenty…. So down the street we go, headed for the Easter Parade.

Virtuous Sunday

Today we welcome another designer to the FabFree family. Virtue  has joined us and has a FREE gift to to the members that join the Virtue group which was announced [HERE] and can be viewed in the FabFree Group Gift Listing as well. Virtue group members can also pick up a 200L Gift Card at the store. She spent her gift card on the Angela Dress, which wold normally cost 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! And I picked out the Joseph Suit in beige for a spring feel, also normally 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! What a great Easter present. The pose,  Beach Stroll by Bounce This Poses, can be found on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Don’t be like another rabbit I know and be late…. Happy Easter!

Bunny Hop

bunny5_001ff

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! 😮

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! 😀

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

Leaving It All Behind

Leave It All Behind

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  After the hectic week I’ve had in RL, it’s time for a get away in SL.  I packed all the essentials (yes, Ripley, even your goodies!), and we loaded up the car with just a few pieces of luggage.  The small one on the left is packed to the brim with Ripley snacks, which made for a very happy pup, indeed.  We filled ‘er up, and headed over to Maison de l’amitie for the holiday weekend.

Fabulous and Free

My free, strapless mini is the latest gift from Satus Inc. for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Alisa Aviator dress hugs all your curves and ends with a slightly flared skirt just above mid-thigh length.  I like the soft sheen of the leather, and the contrast of the texture used on the sides of the bodice.  To add Alisa to your inventory for free, simply activate your Fab Free tag, teleport over to Satus Inc., then click the display.

What’s Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Aurora

Fifty Lindens for a Short Time

My loosely braided, sideswept hairstyle is available today at Wasabi Pills for only 50L as part of Fifty Linden Friday.  Aurora includes the special HUD loaded with 6 textures with roots and non-roots versions for each, plus black hair.  It includes side wisps on the left, the perfect length to frame your face.  If you’d like to add Aurora to your inventory for the extra low FLF price, be sure to pop on over to Wasabi Pills before the promo ends with the arrival of Saturday morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Until next time, happy shopping!

Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away

 

How to enjoy the holiday weekend…

There are many ways to relax this extended weekend. but for me it will be on the top of a boat, taking in the sun and the waves…. in Second Life, at least…. I do intend to do some serious rl relaxing this weekend after a few necessary chores are completed.

Online Shopping Addict…

On my shopping spree online I found some great deals on the Marketplace.  I found a few dollarbies that look and feel great for lounging about. The Bro Collection Casual Cotton Tee is a 1L find on the marketplace from Adham DeCuir. It comes with a texture HUD to change the tee to three different statements  (Now I can’t get this song out of my head). Another 1L find is the White Bermuda Cargo Shorts by Aquarius. For my feet I picked up the Sandy Flip Flops at DROPS that Kat first showed [HERE]. I’m still wearing the Brandon Specs from Thalia Heckroth, a group gift and free to members and just 5L to join.

Time to feel the breeze in my hair and the surf on my face….
