Think Pink

Think Pink

Hello, Fab Readers! ūüôā

I know I’ve mentioned many times before that I LOVE pink. So when I saw the sexy, pink group gift out from Nessmarket, I hurried over to grab it! The Lyrical top and skirt are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. But you’ll need to hurry if you want this gift because there are only a limited number available – at the time of¬†writing this post, there were only 110 left!

My pretty floral tattoo is a 1L Marketplace gift from La Femme. It’s called Tree of Life because there is a beautiful tree of life symbol on the back. I neglected to take a photo of the back, but you can see what it looks like by visiting the Marketplace link.

Speaking of pink, it looks like I’ve been photobombed by a flamingo!

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!)

IM Free and IM Fameshed

im100_9_001f

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Hello Dave VIPs - Love Story

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning¬†I was determined to shake it off¬†Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! ūüėČ

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Tr√®s Joli dress from¬†The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Tr√®s Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

What Happens in Casablanca…

STAYS in… oh, never mind.

Like “Neckwarmer Man” and “Spike,” I thought I might be able to sneak off incognito for a little post-holiday peace and quiet, so I headed off to the beautiful island of Casablanca. Unfortunately, the paparazzi were waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane.

I can’t help but wonder who tipped them off.

The Red Woman

Unlike a certain other Red Woman, my disguise fooled no one.

I was so sure that this super-sexy, barely-there gown Рthe latest group gift from .miss chelsea. Рwould be a brilliant disguise for this yoga-pants-and-t-shirt kinda gal (maybe the fact that it is cut waaaay up to there makes it a bit more noticeable than I expected). The dress comes in sizes for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Slink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies. There is even a HUD included so you can change the metal ring from gold to silver.

Also part of my not-so-good disguise are these free sunglasses from KITJA. They were originally a gift at FaMESHed (previously blogged by Astrid), but you can now pick them up for free in the store Рno group needed. The strappy wrist ribbons are a free group gift from Caboodle. In addition to red, you can also find black, blue, and white ribbons in the box.

With so much skin showing, I was sure to be cold, so I added the snuggly, fur stole by *AGATA* that I picked up as a free group gift at On9. To be honest, I thought On9 was supposed to close at the end of December, but when I popped over this afternoon, I was so happy to find that it was still open. If you missed any of the amazing, free gifts, you still have time to pick them up! ūüôā

Sigh… here comes another photographer. So much for my quiet vacation.

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! ūüėõ

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet,¬†and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from¬†Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar…¬†although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. ūüôā
