Homeless in high style!

homeless1

Ok, funny story. Here I was, doing a little decorating at my home to take pictures for this post, putting out some Christmasy stuff, when I decided that I didn’t like one of the items I had put out. So, I selected it and deleted it. Oops! It was actually my home that I had selected, and suddenly poof, no more church! What is even more funny, the actual building belonged to my Mom, so it is no simple thing to just pull it out of my inventory and put it back down, I have to wait for her to actually log into SL to put it back out for me. So now my post has turned into a Christmasy ‘waiting’ post. LOL

Lucky for me, I can almost forget that I am homeless for the moment, as I do not have to sit in the snow, I have a decorative element to make my wait pretty, and, one of my KittyCatS decided to hang around (while the rest immediately took off, enjoying their new-found, ‘no-wall’ freedom). The lovely ottoman I have, to keep me out of the snow, and the beautiful wreath behind me (easel not included), are both items available from the Park Place booth at the Wash Cart sale, which just so happened to have officially started today, and of course are each L$10. The choices of poses in the Red Poinsettia Ottoman, both for females, and males, are all really great, and I love the simplicity of the Holiday Ornament Wreath. You have until Jan 6th to visit the Park Place booth, for these, and other lovely decor items, as well as some pretty, mesh, crop sweaters.

Speaking of sweaters…I love the idea of the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ party, and that was what I was actually decorating for in the first place. Well, maybe not a party, as it would have only been me and my cats, but…any excuse to wear an ugly Christmas sweater is ok in my books. How nice of high.v to have put out a gacha at this round of fi*Friday, just full of ugly Christmas sweaters! I got the perfect one for me, it says ‘I want to believe Santa is out there’, which all you fellow sci-fi/alien nerds know, is a riff on X-Files and the “I Want to Believe” UFO poster that Mulder has. For only L$55 a play, choose the machine you want to play, male, female or TD Kids and Baby. and then you will  get 1 mesh sweater, that comes in all of the standard sizes. Even though I forgot to grab a shot of the ad showing every one available, believe me, they are all cute. In fact…they really aren’t ugly at all. I’m not sure if this machine will stick around for the next round, so just in case, you better make your way down to fi*Friday before Friday, or you may miss out.

OK, before I say goodnight, my kitty, Cinder,  reminded me that I never did officially introduce her. Cinder is my newest furbaby, and she is the 5th Anniversary Firestorm KittyCat, The FireFlurry. Like past firestorm kittys, you do not need food for them to survive. While the Firestorm anniversary was a little while ago, you can still get your own FireFlurry at the KittyCatS mainstore, for free, 1 per av.

OK, now that I’ve appeased Cinder’s vanity, I better go see if my Mom has forgotten about my current homeless situation, and give her a call. I hope you all have a wonderful evening, and don’t forget to lock your houses in place! LOL. Until next time, TTFN 🙂

The 8th Unknown Hunt – Part I

Every time I install an upgraded viewer, I wonder, “Will this be the one that crashes my 3 year-old computer?” I spent 3 hours on Monday morning doing a clean install of the new Firestorm Beta viewer because I wanted the full value of materials-enabled items. I really prefer Firestorm to the regular SL viewer, but I think this might be “the one.” I’m pretty sure I hear coughing and gasping every time I crank up the graphics, and too many windlight changes practically blow up my graphics card. Worst of all, I’m seeing tile lines again. GAH!! 😦

Blogging soon

Anyway, a couple of days ago, I spent some time checking out The 8th Unknown Hunt. Unlike other hunts going on at the moment, this one is not huge, and it includes stores that are new, or that you may never have heard of before. To quote the web site: “The original concept for The Unknown Hunt was to introduce hunters to stores that they had never been to or never heard of before. It was also to help new stores and less established ones gain more awareness and customers.” I love visiting new-to-me stores, so this hunt was a lot of fun! Here, I’m wearing the hunt gift from Olegun, the Halter Dress with Belt and Flower. My pose is one of a set of five poses called PINUP by Uncertain Smile Poses.

Blogging soon

Over the mantle, you see 2 more hunt prizes. The Vintage Frames are a gift from Sari-Sari, and the art deco lamp is a gift from Sparrow by Design. The SbD gift also includes a swimsuit, which I’m not showing in this post.

Blogging soon

This delicate jewelry is the gift from .sleeping koala. The picture really doesn’t do it justice, as the metalwork around the edges is so intricate that I just couldn’t get a good photo. My pose, which of course, you can’t really see here (sorry!) is one of a set of six poses from Flash Friendly Poses (includes mirrors). To make up for not showing the whole pose, let me share with you that there are LOTS of hunts going on at FFP, so be sure to stop by and pick up all the great gifts! 😀

Could someone please come and get these cats before my dogs see them? Wait… they’re part of the rug?

Rano at The Arcade

Hello fabulous readers! Long exhausting day today, but before I fall asleep at the keyboard I wanted to show you this pretty dress from Liv-Glam, currently featured at this week’s Fi*Friday sales event. I know, I know: not free. But six different colors are included via HUD, so it’s like you’re getting six dresses for the price of one! 😀

My hair is another group gift from Tram (free to join). Love showed it quite a while ago, but it’s still available, still free, and still cute!

Sweet dreams!

Show Me the Shoes

Have you ever started getting dress, and got to the point where you had the grand task of trying to find the perfect shoes? This is my dilemma on the daily. I stand on my pose stand, plucking through the items of my inventory, trying to find the right pair of shoes for a particular outfit. I attach, I detach… I attach, I detach, the endless cycle that usually ends with me wearing one of my “go-to” shoes. You know the pair, they usually go with everything, and it makes life easier to just suck it up and put them on… especially when you have impatient family members telling you to hurry up and finished getting dressed. Well the other day, I said, enough was enough, I needed to find more shoes! Because we all know, a lady can never have too many shoes. RIGHT?!
VG Moto boots
So my first stop on my hunt for shoes, was a trip to VG shoes. The last time I went there, I was not disappointed. So on my return trip, I was all to thrilled to see some new goodies.

VG Moto Boot 2
Item one is their VG Moto Unisex Olive boot, which does come with resize scripts for adjusting the size. When I first put them on, they were a little too big, so I went ahead and made them smaller. My favorite part about these shoes, are the studs! It is an excellent decorative touch!

VG Dolce
The second item up for grabs are these VG Dolce Nude shoes! I get excited just thinking about them! I love it when designers allow for texture changes through a hud. This means, you can remix the look of the shoe to match the outfit you are wearing. The overall shoe remains nude, but where you see the red, that can be changed to a few other patterns through the shoe hud. You can also change the spike and studs from silver to gold!
VG Dulce Shoes

Now the shoes aren’t free, you have to join the free VG shoes group in order to purchase each pair of shoes for $15L. All together this was $30L’s well spent!

Just Design Deviant Shoes 2
My last shoe find was from Just Designs, they currently have this beauty out as a group gift. The group is free to join, and these JD Deviant shoes are free for the taking. The detail, the fierceness, the whole design of the shoe just demands a closer look! I do have to give some credit to my mom, she’s the one that told me about this find! Hi^5!

The Zoe skin from HUIT is only L$55 at fi*Fridays for the fifty five linden Friday even.  This skin is a limited time offer so HURRY!  I absolutely love the new Ingrid hair from MINA Hair.  This hair is available for only L$95 in every color at My Attic at The Deck from August 21st – 31st.  The hair includes a texture hud to change the headband color.

The pictures were taken at Las Arenas Rosadas.
