Early Morning Light

Desert Light
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Weekend! Ripley and I have truly been enjoying the arrival of cooler temperatures in the desert. For the past two days, we’ve ventured out for long morning walks. The bright sunshine washed everything in our path with a clear, brilliant light, yet the air was still tempered by the early hour.  After many months of sweltering triple digits, we are savoring the arrival of more fall-like weather.

It May Be Cooler in the Mornings…

but it is still very warm in the afternoon, so long pants are not really an option for me in RL yet.  I was very happy to stumble across this cute Aurola outfit in the Desire shop on the Marketplace!  With a knotted crop top and sporty drawstring-style shorts, this casual combination was ideal for an early morning jaunt with the pupster.  Although I opted for a midnight hue with white piping, Aurola includes a full fat-pack, which offers 18 colors for the top, and 15 for the shorts, so if black isn’t your favorite, you have many other options available.  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile top and shorts combo for only 5L!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you are enjoying some splendid, early autumn weather yourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

True Blue

True Blue

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are here with a quick post to share another of our hunt finds with you from the Around the Grid Hunt.  This hunt runs until September 30th, and hunt gifts cost 1L if you search for the small hunt object concealed in the shop, or 25L if you purchase the prizes from the hunt sign in the store.  The small hot air balloon-shaped hunt object at Gidget’s Style contained my lovely blue and gold sleeveless frock.  With an all-over floral print and an asymmetrical hemline, the Nina Mesh Dress is ideal for the long summer days of July and August.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh body, by adjusting my alpha layer, I was able to get a perfect fit.  I could feature wearing this dress in RL as well as in SL!

Sizes Included:

  • XXS
  • XS
  • X
  • M
  • L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

I hope you are enjoying the dog days of summer – I know Ripley and I are cherishing the time we have to wander carefree through the grid.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach!  With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday.  I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy.  It will be wonderful!  I hope you have some time with family and friends, too.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley – save a chocolate frosting free cupcake for me, please!)

Lifeguard Love

Snapshot_003Whew! What a day…  I had no idea being a lifeguard would be such a hectic job!  I don’t think I got to sit in that cool perched lifeguard chair for more than a few minutes.  Thank goodness I get a bit of a break now.  As surfing and swimming causes quite a healthy appetite, the water clears out pretty quick at dinner.  I just see him out in the waves…  pretend flailing for the third time.  I have half a mind to go out there and remind him about chicken little.   He’s probably a better swimmer than I am…  but does love to be rescued…

Get Your Own Uniform

My swimsuit and towel can be found at The Wash Cart Sale on the K&A Design display for 10L.  Yes!!   You get both items, for just 10L.  Crazy stuff isn’t it?

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • TMP

Wild Rose

Rose

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I’m taking a quick break from housecleaning in RL to tell you about another discovery Ripley and I made at The Cart Wash.  The Wild Rose top from Mystic Dragon Designs features a floral print across a white background, a halter style neckline, and an asymmetrical open front, which offers a sexy peek at your belly button.   I really love the romantic, feminine look of this summery shirt, and you can scoop it up for only 10L at The Wash.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus
  • Werwolf

Sadly, the dog hair (thanks, Ripley!) is not vacuuming itself up, so I need to return to my cleaning.  Perhaps I should follow Serena’s example and pick up the Clean-o-Mat.  It sure would come in handy!  Or maybe you can train a dog to use a vacuum cleaner?  I wonder…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

Gently Down The Stream

TheWashTiar
The Wash Cart Sale is underway and there are tons and tons of 10L fabulous finds!  Today I am gently floating down the stream in three items I picked up at the Tiar display.

Tiar Leeas Top – 10L!!

The Leeas Top by Tiar comes in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  Included is a 6 texture option HUD so you can match it up with whatever bottoms you decide to wear with it!

Tiar Sexy Shorts – 10L!!

You won’t need to go far to find some great shorts to go with the Leeas Top…  The Tiar Sexy Shorts are also available at The Wash Cart Sale for 10L.  These hot shorts come in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  I am wearing a denim floral print, but it also offers a camouflage option via an included HUD.

Tiar Woman Keds – 10L!!

Who doesn’t need a pair of basic sneakers?  These are keepers!  for just 10L you can pick up the Woman Keds (resize), and they include a HUD for 10 different prints and solids.  They don’t say exactly which feet they work with, however I am wearing my Maitreya Lara Feet and they fit with no adjusting.  I imagine they would work with most feet as it includes a resize opton.

True Beauty is Found in Virtue

Dream Another Dream

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I made a new pal today as we were out wandering across The Mill.  Maybe it was my cowgirl boots, maybe my lovely new dress, or perhaps the carrots I snuck to him, but Beau, here, is now one of our fast friends.  He’s super gentle, and with him around, I will never have to mow the lawn again! 🙂

Speaking of the Dress…

Eve, is the latest free gift from Virtue for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With short sleeves, a body hugging bodice, and a long flowing hemline, this dress is sweetly feminine.  I really like the way the bodice and the skirt have slightly different textures that coordinate together beautifully.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XS, X, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus

If you haven’t visited the group gift listing for Fabulously Free in SL members, I’d highly recommend checking it out.   The generosity of designers in SL never ceases to amaze me!  You can find the Fab Free group gift listing {HERE}.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
