Intermission

Intermission

Stretching my legs…

We are enjoying our night out at the theatre, but we are both glad for intermission. While she is off powdering her nose, I’m sneaking a quick smoke. (Yes, I smoke. But only virtually upon occasion) I was fortunate to find the Evening Tux on the K&A Design cart at The Wash Cart Sale. While the price may be cheap at just 10L, the quality is not. I chose the black tux, but you can also find this tux in white or pinstripe for only 10L each.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em…

My pose today is a FREE Men Only Hunt 10 gift from WetCat. This gift has two poses, each with mirrors and a cigarette to hold. I better fan the smoke and pop a breath mint before she gets back…

Cat Nap

Black Cat Nap

Happy weekend (almost), fabulous readers!

This week at work has been so busy and exhausting. I thought I would just relax on this bench for a bit and take a quick cat nap. I just wish that cat would stop staring at me! I mean, I’m really not spooked by black cats crossing my path, but it IS Friday the 13th, and one really can’t be too careful. 🐱

Casual and Comfortable

I love comfy fall clothes, and this casual, off-the-shoulder sweater dress from Rir Life is no exception. The Long Sleeve Halloween Dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, but there is also an alpha in the folder so it can be worn by classic avatars. The texturing is nicely done, and there’s a sinister-looking Jack O’Lantern face on the front.

To pick up this gift, head over to the Rir Life mainstore and join the Teleport Hub in-world group (10L join fee).

Put a Bow On It

To accessorize, I added a pretty bow choker. The Ribbon Choker is the latest (I think) group gift from The Little Bat. It is unrigged (meaning you can move it around), and the bow comes in 6 different metallic colors: blue, gold, green, pink, red, and silver (which I’m wearing). Click anywhere on the choker to bring up a resize menu.

Getting Hair-y

I popped into Elikatira last weekend to pick up the Fifty Linden Friday sale item, and guess what I found out? There’s a HUGE clearance sale going on, with EVERYTHING priced at least 75% off! I picked up this sultry Olivia hairdo for just 72L if you can believe that. Fatpacks are on sale for 375L.

I don’t know how much longer the sale will last, so I strongly suggest that you don’t wait too long. This is a great opportunity to stock up on some really wonderful hairstyles at a terrific price! 😀

Witches Brew

Witches Brew

I should have listened to Love’s advice in her post {HERE}.  “Be careful what you conjure, witches,” she said.  I thought I read the spell correctly.  I really did………but somehow, I turned my pal Ripley into his arch-enemy…….a cat!  See him perched up there on my shoulder?  See that look on his face?  He is NOT happy…….not one little bit!  I am hoping that one of our Fabulous Readers can point me to the antidote.   Either that, or perhaps Love can help me out…

It All Started At The Cart Wash

As the pupster and I unpacked our Cart Wash boxes, I began with this adorable silver Cobwebbed Mini Dress from MishMash Fusion, which is a one of 11 shades in the MishMash Fusion gacha machine.  This strapless frock features an all-over spiderweb print, which is adorned with a black ruffled trim and waistband.  As soon as I put it on, I fell in love with the loose-fitting skirt, which has plenty of extra fabric for it to swish with each step.  The package contains standard fitted mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, so I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for your avatar.   At only 20L per play, you can easily stock up on a variety of colors.

What’s Included:

  • Standard Fitted mesh
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Along Came a Spider

With the web pattern on my new dress, I couldn’t resist an arachnid-style necklace.  For just 1L on the Marketplace, I scooped up this Spider Necklace for Woman from La Forgia Jewels.  This bauble features onyx, moonstone and steel beads, and a spider pendant in the center.  I thought it complemented my new frock well, and the price was just right!

I Needed Just One More Item…

The only thing missing was a witch hat (not a witch CAT, but a witch HAT).  I set up my cauldron, pulled out all the ingredients, and began the incantation…  Then, it happened; just when I chanted the words, my nose twitched and I sneezed a great sneeze!  A green mist floated up from the brew, and when it cleared, instead of a HAT, I had a very annoyed former-German-Shepherd-now-CAT glaring at me.  “I-I-I-I’ll make it right, Buddy.  I promise!” I stammered.

So, you see my dilemma, Fabulouses.  I picked up a terrific mini dress and necklace for a grand total of just 21L, but I also made a HUGE mistake in my magic spell.  If anyone knows the antidote, Ripley and I will sure appreciate your assistance.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley who is sadly shaking his head and whimpering for help)

FabFree Designer Friday – 10/13/17 – Ecce Bellus


Hi Fabulouses! Pru has had a long week, so I am giving her the day off and am featuring our “designer this week” for FabFree Designer Friday!

Get Off Your Skyplat!

This week we are featuring Ecce Bellus, which is an adorable, and very affordable little shop run by Shilo Easterwood on the IQ Sim offering women’s clothing, footwear and accessories.  This gem of a shop is easy to cam around in and you can literally see everything from the door, so don’t be afraid to close your marketplace browser, climb off of your platform in the sky and do a little inworld shopping!  If you would really, really…  rather stay in the sky, Shilo does have a Marketplace Store too, don’t worry!

There are Gifts!

Ecce Bellus offers a free group gift for their store group with a 25L join fee which I blogged [HERE] on FabFree, as well as one for the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group which is always free to join.

And Great Deals Too!

If you are in the mood for a little shopping, I highly recommend these pretty Summer Sensation Dresses as shown below.  I know you won’t believe me, but they are only 20L each!  This is just one example of the very affordable pricing you’ll find in store!

Too Early? :D

Too Early? :D

It’s My Freezing Reality

I know, I know…  “Too early, Love!”… you don’t have to grind my gears about it.  It probably does seem like it’s a little early to be putting banks of snow and winter coats on the blog already, but you know what?  Depending on the day in my RL…  we do already have snow, and my winter coat is on standby (so are my flip-flops…  just in case!).  I am just as displeased about this as you are.  The only thing I can do now is bundle up in something pretty and suck up the snowflakes.

Maraschino at The Wash Cart Sale has a whole display filled with these classy Shirley Coats for 10L in five different colours as well as some matching boots which are also 10L.  As a free gift (priced at 0L), you can grab the Studded Envelope Clutch!

Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

It’s Not a Trick!

Trick_002

It’s not a trick!

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

I Want Candy!

I Want Candy!

No Tricks, Just Treats…

Love and I decided to get a head start on the grab for candy this year. I don’t know why , but she always seems to get more treats in her bag than me. (I think she reaches in my bag when I’m not looking) This year I have a plan… be a depressed donkey and hope I get pity candy. We’ll see if that works. I can always point to the nail in my bottom holding my tail on for a little extra sympathy…

Just Like at The Wal-Mart…

We found our Halloween costumes on the Darling Home and Gift cart at The Wash Cart Sale. The TigGGR and E-Or Costumes are just two of the many costumes you will find for just 10L each. These costumes were designed to remind you of the “store bought” costumes of our youth. The wonderful thing about these costumes is because they are rigged mesh, they will work for men, women and teens. The costume accessories come with a built in resizer to get the right fit. Head on down to The Wash Cart Sale and get your costume today!

Seems Like Old Times…

Tenk Tank - MnM Avatars

Love reminded me that this is not the first time we teamed up for a Halloween costume post. As a TBT, I present to you a photo from 2011. Don’t we look tasty?

Be Careful What You Conjure, Witches!

Closetwitch
Hey there Fabulouses! You might want to get comfy and grab a coffee or something because I’m feeling a little wordy (and nerdy, but I am sure that comes through in post of my posts so I am sure you are plenty prepared for that already lol) and have news of fabulous free stuff and fun gachas to tell you about today!

Which witch are you?

Sn@tch recently released a new 7 Seas Fish For This prize called Which Witch that includes a 23 piece set that will set you up with plenty of clothing, appliers, shoes, jewelry, makeup and accessory pieces to mix and match.  I am wearing just five of the prizes in this set (booties, tights, skater skirt, floral top,  & collar), but this is just a taste of the whole thing!

You’ll need a casual 7 Seas Fishing Rod to gain access to the pond of prizes which will set you back 100L, but you can use this rod over and over again for future prizes and other ponds around the grid.  No bait is required.

Setting The Scene

Most of the items in my photograph are from the Mystic Room Décor Gacha Set that is currently featured at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room event.  This machine is just 55L to play and you can score everything in my photo aside from the build, chandelier and casting circle.  Those three items are part of the Something Sinister instore gacha (50L per play) at The Hive.

Between these two gacha machines, I was ready to start conjuring, but let me tell you…  Be careful what you conjure because you never know what might rise up behind you!  Thank goodness I have him trapped in a circle.  Ever wonder what made Carson decide to come back after so long of an absence?  Now you know!  (maybe an embellished story…)

RiseupCarson
Speaking of Lucifer Carson…

His devilish look today was put together with a couple of really great finds.  His Bloody Shirt is available at The Wash Cart Sale by TIAR on sale for 10L and you can find his Pants, Wings and Shoes as a free group gift with a free group join at It’s Gau.

Now… what button do I push on this thing to send him back? 😛

True Gentleman

True Gentleman

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished…

“I wish I had a copy of today’s newspaper” she said with a sigh. The “sigh” being the signal for me to ask her if she would like me to run down to the newsstand and grab her a copy. And, of course, I did. She smiled and said, ” You don’t really have to…” letting her words trail off, letting me know what she was saying isn’t really what she was meaning. “I’ll be right back. I proclaimed as I was out the door before she could feign another protest. As I arrived at the newsstand, I happened to look down at my shoe.  I rolled my eyes and proclaimed to no one in particular “Why can’t you pick up after your dog?”  At least the newspaper will come in handy for something…

Stepping out in it with Style…

My dapper look is a FREE gift, NO GROUP JOIN at Lupus Femina. I am not sure how long this FREE deal will last so hurry down and pick up the True Gentleman Suit before the price changes. The suit comes with pants, shirt and jacket, or a shirt and vest option.  My pose today is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift found at Animosity. The Jhamal pose set can be yours if you find the hidden mustache.
