Winter Memories

Trucking

Memories.

I learned how to drive on an ancient stick shift truck much like the one in this picture. At least that’s how it seems in the mind’s eye of my inner child. It had a wooden bed and holes in the floor board and I was 15 1/2 and it was winter and I was certain I would not survive the cold as there was no heat in that thing. Yet somehow I managed to grow a fondness for those first experiences. So when I put together my ensemble, I had to capture a picture in front of this pick-up at Rosemoor Sim to share with you.

Trucking 2

The shirt.

I picked up my holiday shirt (it’s an applier T-shirt, and I adore applier shirts as they fit any body shape) for FREE from House of Ruby. The Advent Calendar Hunt is on right now, and House of Ruby is participating. Just hunt down the little candle and this gift is yours for 0L.  You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega.

I needed a scarf!

It was cold outside! But I found a free scarf! If you haven’t stopped by Prism to pick up the advent gifts there, don’t despair. It’s not too late. You can only pick up one gift per day, but you can choose any day (as long as it’s already passed). So in other words if you go today, you could choose any ONE of days 1 through 7. So if you like my scarf you can wear your FREE Prism group tag today and choose day 2 to pick it up! It’s rigged mesh, so it will fit and flow with your body!

One more thing to top it off!

Don’t forget about the Alice Project Advent Calendar! Every day a FREE to all gift hair is being set out, but if you are a member of the VIP group (it is 750 to join) you also get an additional gift. 750 seems steep until you realize you’ll be getting an extra 24 hairs and since Alice Project does these gift projects rather frequently, stay in the group and you’ll be set for the next time they hand out extra gifts to VIP members (which seems to be pretty often in my experience).

I’m wearing Jenn from a couple of days ago. Unlike the daily FREE gifts, the VIP gifts are available to VIP members throughout the advent season, so if you miss a day, you can still pick it up later, as long as you get there by the 24th.

Santa Baby

Santa BabyHi There Fab Free’rs! I can just feel Christmas inching closer, and I’m starting to get excited. I hope you are also! For this post what started with a sexy coat quickly turned into a sexy Santa. lol I call her “Santa Baby”. While the sex does almost ooze from this look, I do think it can be toned down a little with some jeans and a cute top under the coat. Either way, it’s a lot of fun, especially for the holidays. Now I’ll get to telling you all about the  Fab finds that made this Santa Baby look possible!

Santa Baby Look
Eternity Santa Hat

Starting with the hat, this one I found on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. The Santa hat is by Eternity, and no holiday Santa outfit would be complete without a hat like this. This particular hat has resize scripts so it will easily fit male and female avatars. I tilted mine some to better suit all Pru’s fluffy hair!

Indented Holiday Gift

The best part of this look is the jacket in my opinion. This jacket is the FREE holiday gift at Indented. You’ll find it sitting under the Christmas Tree just inside the entrance of the Indented main location. This FREE group gift includes the jacket in unique sizes for specific body types. It also comes in several colors including the red color shown, green, black, and brown. The Indented group is FREE to join. Once you’ve got your Indented tag, you can purchase the gift under the Christmas Tree for zero linden.

AVICANDY Santa’s Woolly Socks 

These cute holiday themed applier socks are another Marketplace buy. They are from a shop called AVICANDY which is known for fun socks and stockings among other things. This specific pair of socks is 49 lindens on the market place and has appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible bodies. Additionally there are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Perch Boots 

These cute boots by Perch are their contribution to the Women Only Hunt 2. The WOH2 hunt is a FREE hunt, and you’ll be searching for a snowflake. These cute boots come with a color change HUD that allows you to choose between 4 neutral colors. They can also be resized via a touch menu. These boots from Perch are not built for specific feet, and include an alpha layer so that classic avatars can wear them as well as mesh avatars. I did need to re-position them some to sit right with my Maitreya Lara body.

I hope you like this saucy Santa look! Here are the details.

Hat – ..::Eternity::.. Santa’s Hat – 10L on the Marketplace

!gO! Pick Up Day 5!

Snapshot_002
Hi there!  I am stopping by again today real quick to share news about the time sensitive !gO! Advent prize for day 5 and some sweet holiday flats I came across as a group gift at #EMPIRE  that just went so nicely with it!  There are so many wonderful gifts out there this month that I wish I could just stay here all day and show them, alas.. there is work.. and family and stuff!

Adventing at !gO! – Day 5

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Alina Jacket & Top with the Hydrangea add on under the advent tree labelled as Day #5.  You can wear the shirt with the jacket or each piece on it’s own if you like.  There are daily prizes for guys too!!

Adding the shoes…

After I had put on my new jacket, I remembered that #EMPIRE had recently released their group gift for December and they matched perfectly with one of the colours in the texture change HUD.  When you are a VIP at #EMPIRE (499L to join), you can pick up tons of group gifts including the Poinsettia Flats I am wearing today, and also take advantage of their group lucky boards.

Have a great day!

Peace, Love and Aleutia

Snapshot_003
Hiya Fabulouses! I hope you are enjoying your weekend🙂.  I have been attempting to finish up with my holiday shopping over the past couple of days.   I did most of it this past week online, but there are a few things I have to pick up in person.  I can hardly believe how busy it is out at the shopping centers today, and people are not in a jolly mood!  I am a bit of a pip squeak in RL, so I am not surprised when I am not seen sometimes, but I nearly bit the big one twice today due to wayward shoppers with carts.

Anyways, I’m babbling now…  I decided it’s safer in here (the grid!), so I am popping in to tell you about another one of the awesome free Peace on Earth Hunt prizes I picked up.

About my gorgeous coat…

At Aleutia when you locate the hidden Peace on Earth hunt icon (which is an earth globe as mentioned in previous posts), you will have the Flora coat as shown in my photo for free, fitted to the Maitreya Mesh Body.  Two variations are included (floral collar or solid), as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colour the the buttons, sweater and cuffs.

  2. A Peaceful Frost by Love Trill
  3. Too Much Red In The Champagne Room by Carson Caiben
  4. ALTER Ego by Carson Caiben
  5. Riding In A Wonderland Of Snow by Love Trill

Oh!  And the hair too

I should also mention my sweet new hairstyle that is available at this round of The Arcade Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  The particular hair I am wearing is called Snow Fall, however there are two styles to play for and a ton of different colour packs!  Snowfall comes with the hat attached and includes a texture change hud for the hat and the ribbon on the hat!  Too cute to pass up for 75L!

ps.  How silly is it that I get excited over the snow falling on WordPress every December?  Face With Tears of Joy on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (revised) Did you notice it?

Adventing We Will !gO!

Snapshot_006
Hey Fabulouses! I am stopping by super fast tonight with a quick snapshot and a flash of news to let you know about a cute advent prize I picked up today at !gO!. As this is an advent gift, it is only available today (12/3/16).

Day 3 Advent @ !gO!:

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Valentine Collared Coat for free under the tree.  You just have to dig your way through the numbered tags to find #3!  I actually picked these pants up yesterday – as the day 2 advent prize at !gO! and thought I would never need a pair of green and white striped pants, but when I saw this jacket – it all came together and I love the way it looks.

Enjoy your evening and happy adventing!

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets😉.

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

I Need A Lift!

Snapshot_002
Hey Fabulouses, I need a lift!  My car broke down in what appears to be a zombie infected area.  At least I am stranded in style, thanks to Siss Boom who put out this hot Velour Top as a new addition to their huge group gift wall.  This group does have a group fee of 500L, but you won’t be disappointed in the current group gift offerings and you’ll be able to pick up new gifts as they come along too.  You’ll find plenty of fab gifts to make up the fee in no time.

About my hot Velour Top…

The Siss Boom Velour Top in black fits like a glove to my mesh Maitreya body, but does come with an alpha layer if you need it for the system body.  I think it makes a great clubbing top, or even as a top for cool apocalyptic look.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Mesh XXS-L

Not Gauche, It’s Gau

Its Gau

 

Jackets are my Thing!

I love wearing outfits that come with jackets. I shiver with anticipation at the thought of cardigan season. This group gift from It’s Gau is perfect for the Fall season and would make a great Winter look as well! The mesh White Jacket Outfit is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join!  EDIT: the correct link for It’s Gau has been updated. Sorry!

GIMME, GIMME, GIMME

The outfit includes the White Jacket in sizes XS-XL , Skinny Jeans in sizes XS-XL and High Tension Boots. Each comes with an alpha layer. I’m totally loving this look and this one has made it into my outfits folder. Odds are if you see me out and about, I’ll be wearing this!

Etched in Style

Laced in Style
Hello Fabulouses! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  In real life, I try to stay *far* away from malls and shopping on Black Friday, and the next couple of days afterwards.  It seems like whenever I think I’ve found a parking spot, it turns out to be a small car!  In SL, it’s a different story – no worries about parking here!  With a day off from work, Ripley and I traveled around, scoping out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

Gone Camping

Over at Etchaflesh, I had no trouble finding a parking spot.  In fact, I brought my trusty Kindle, along with the pupster’s favorite bone, and we settled into one of eight cozy camping chairs placed on the back wall of the store.  After just 30 minutes of “parking,” I happily welcomed this sassy, sleeveless parka to the fold for free.  It features a crop top, and a long vest that is accented with several jazzy buttons, stars, and stripes.  A color-change HUD allows you to alter the texture of the vest (outer and inner lining), crop top, and the decorative buttons, stars, and stripes individually, so you can create a variety of looks.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, and Venus
  • Standard-sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD

I’ve Got My Sassy Pants on Today

The trendy style of my parka called for slacks with attitude, and I located the perfect trousers – Pencil Pants for Maitreya by Beck.  These black, laced, leather pants provided just the look I was striving for.  I love the detail of the tied lacing.  Created exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, Mie Beck offers them for sale in her Marketplace shop for only 50L.  Mie states on her profile that her goal is to make a place where all people can afford to wear 100% mesh outfits.  These pants are not only budget-friendly, but stylish to boot!

From Head to Toe

The one Black Friday sale that Rip and I dared to venture to was at Truth Hair (Love told us about this super-saver event in her post [HERE]).  I scooped up the versatile Fenella hair for only 75L.  Able to be worn with and without the fedora, this chic ‘do features long, flowing locks, and a color-change HUD for the hat.  We had a hard time wading our way through the crowd in the lobby of the Truth store, but our persistence really paid off in the end.  I was able to scoop up several hairstyles at bargain prices.  Score for team Ripley!

After slipping on Lewis studded, flat sneakers from the Mesh Agency, Rip and I dusted off the bike, and pedaled over to the Gates of Melancholy sim where we worked off some of those Thanksgiving dinner calories by exploring along the beach.

I hope you enjoyed the fun, casual Fabulous Find we put together for you today.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping camping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
