On the Dock of the Bay

On the Dock of a Bay

Happy weekend (what’s left of it), fabulous readers! And happy Father’s Day (U.S.) to you dads out there!

As I was checking out some beautiful places in SL over the weekend, I happened to wander on to the Devin’s Eye sim. It’s a beautifully-decorated rural sim, and I highly recommend a visit. My buddy here is actually much friendlier than he looks, so don’t let him scare you away.

Oh! And I’ve got a comfy, casual look to share with you for YOUR summer sim-hopping! ūüėÄ

Comfy Jeans for Summer

Aleutia recently announced a change in their group gift policy: “Each week, Aleutia will take at least one of our older releases and place it out among the group gifts. When the week is up, that release will be retired from both the main store and marketplace forever.”

So… there are 2 takeaways from that statement:

  1. There will now be WEEKLY GROUP GIFTS! Woohoo!
  2. You’d better grab the gifts quickly each week before they disappear forever!

I’m sporting the first of these weekly gifts, The Zeta Jeans.¬†They come in not one, not two, but FOURTEEN (14) different colors.

The “catch” — if you can call it that — is that they are only designed to fit Maitreya mesh bodies (you can certainly try them with different bodies to see if they’ll fit, though).

Remember: you only have 1 WEEK to grab this gift before a new gift is released and this one goes away forever. So don’t wait too long!

Be My BayBee

I wandered into new-to-me store Holly Mill last week when I was looking for a different store. This turned out to be a good thing because they have a really nice FREE gift set out!

The Baybee Crop Top comes in sizes for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass mesh bodies only. Five (5) different designs are included in the box.

The gift is absolutely free. Just click and buy for 0L. No group join is required. ūüôā

Holly Mill Gift

Enjoy!

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Hi guys! I have a quickie for you today. Just a pretty little dress that will make you feel like a princess and a lovely necklace.

I feel pretty

I picked up this fun and flouncy dress at Shoenique. The flower on the front is removable and the white spot on the skirt isn’t really there, it’s just a little bit of light from my windlight setting. It is the April free group gift but it is still available and I don’t imagine that it will go away soon because there is a whole wall of past group gifts as well. Just join the Shoenique group for free and click away!

Dress Sizes:

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus, Isis
  • Slink hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • 5 standard sizes L-XXS

I also feel lucky

There are three free lucky boards at Chain, currently stocked with two necklaces and a really great dress that I had to have! The boards are open to everyone, no group join is required. I did eventually win the dress (YAY!) but before that I won and photographed this cute little look. Maybe I’ll show you the dress later, but right now look how fabulous this necklace is!

I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices.¬†Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well!¬†
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Moment of Peace

Peace

Hello Fabulous Readers!¬† I have family arriving from out of town tonight, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a budget friendly hunt find that I picked up for just one Linden dollar.¬† Since Stan had such good luck at the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt, I decided to give it a go myself, and came away with the Gloria outfit from Sweet E’s Designs.¬† With its floral skirt and coordinating short sleeve top, this outfit had me instantly ready for summery weather.¬† The shirt features a scoop-style neckline adorned with a narrow string tied in a bow.¬† The mini skirt, with its column of four buttons and four pockets, rides low on your hips and hugs your curves.¬† Since the outfit contains both classic and mesh avatar versions, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for you.¬† To pick up this complete outfit for yourself, teleport over to the store and search for the puzzle piece hidden in the store.¬† The hunt sign out front has a hint giver, which I found pretty handy.¬† Since the hunt concludes on June 3rd, you still have plenty of time left.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

After my peaceful moment at Butterfly Beach, it’s time to round up Ripley, and head off to the airport.¬† Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Kat is wearing…

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head:  Vista Lia
Head Applier:  YS&YS Miki
Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Soldier
Hair:  Stealthic Ascension
Outfit:¬† Sweet E’s Designs Gloria Shirt and Skirt (prize in the Peace by Peace 2 Hunt – 1L)

Outside My Window

Outside My Window

Like most people, I work indoors. All day. Usually from behind a computer. And I often spend time looking out my window, watching the world go by.

I’ve resolved this year to try to get outdoors more often, even if it’s only just to walk the dogs. So far, I’m not doing very well… but it’s only January, so I’ve still got time, right? ūüôā

Back in Black

I love a basic black suit, especially one that’s as versatile as this one.

The Blazer Dress and Piper Pants is a recent group gift from Clef de Peau. It can be worn as a suit, as you see here, or without the pants as a very sexy dress.

The outfit comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Both the jacket and pants come with a HUD so you can choose from 7 different colors: black, “princess” (pink), wine, rosewood, navy, crimson, white, and ivory.

IMPORTANT: At this time, you can only find this gift in the Clef de Peau¬†in-world group notices. It was removed from the store for some reason, and I don’t know whether it will ever be put back there. So as of now, you must join the group to grab the gift from the notices.

Pssst, there’s also a gift for the guys.

Enjoy! ‚̧

Oh, What Fun It Is To Ride

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m back in the saddle bringing more awesome gifts for you and your equine buddy!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Brrr, it’s cold on the trail today, but I’m staying warm and cozy in this beautiful coat. The Kabira Coat is the December group gift from Sevyn East and comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Not only does the coat come in this Christmas-y green color, but with the magic of a texture-change HUD, it also comes in blue, black, and a pretty purply-pink.

Note: the gift I picked up had an attachment problem with the HUD, but hopefully, that is fixed now. If it’s not, just rez the HUD on the ground and make your selection that way. It still works. ūüôā

Horsin’ Around

Fergus is back in his horse body today after spending a few days as a stag, and he’s chomping at the bit to share some of his free finds with you:

  • Fergus’s antlers – with holiday ribbons and lights – are a gift from Jinx at The Chapter Four. There is also similar set for “hooomans” in the box.
  • If you have already purchased the Norse Gods Tack Set for your WHRH, there’s a free¬†gift waiting for you at the Jinx store. The Xmas Texture HUD will turn your tack a pretty red and gold with a white blanket. There are versions for heavies as well as WB/QH in the box.
  • The Snowy Hoof Applier is a free gift from CINNAMON. You’ll find this – and several more WHRH gifts – under the Christmas tree at the Water Horse Mall.

 

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Another gift from The Chapter Four is this hair from Blossom. The¬†BMGH 02 Xmas Edition hair comes in 6 different colors and includes the Santa hat. It’s not labeled as unisex, but I think this hair could also be worn by fellas who like a longer look. One thing: there appears to be some sort of light built in, which you can see right under my hat where the hair parts. I could not figure out how to turn this off (no mod), but it’s really not a big deal.

My jewelry is a gift from Elle et Lui at The Chapter Four. The necklace and earrings are included. There is no resizer, but you can do a right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

Finally… my gloves are a gift from E-Clipse Designs. A texture-change HUD is included so you can change the color from black to brown or sand. The gloves are Bento-enabled, so you will need to remove your hands if you don’t want them showing through the gloves. Guys, there is also a version for you, which Carson showed off HERE.

Whew – that’s all for now. Happy trails to you! ūüėÄ

Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

You know the snow is piled high when you have to ride a deer to get around!

Truth be told, I’ve been having so much fun riding around on this sweet, obliging stag that I haven’t wanted to stop. Today, we explored the beautiful forests of¬†IASWAS – Groenland Kangamiut. The sim is full of lovely mountain trails perfect for skiing or sledding… we even saw a few people riding bicycles!

Oh, and I’m keeping him. I named him Fergus. ūüôā

What Fun it is to Ride

I’m staying warm on the trail in this cozy, festive coat, which is the¬†latest gift from¬†Rir¬†Life Designs¬†for members of the¬†TeleportHub¬†in-world group.

The White Knitted Coat comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The Red Fur Collar comes in one size and cannot be resized; however, you can move it around to reposition if needed.

Make Me Blush

The weather outside is frightful… and my cheeks are sporting a delightful blush thanks to a free gift I picked up at Izzie’s.

The Winter Blush Gift comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Slink, and Omega mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars.

No need to join a group. Just head over to the Izzie’s mainstore and click to buy for 0L.

P.S. There are a few more gifts under the tree so be sure you check them all out before you leave. ūüėÄ

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!

One of the things I love most about fall is pumpkin spice everything. Especially the coffee. ūüėÄ

Sevyn East set out this adorable outfit for The Jerky Turkey Hunt. For just 1L, you can get the cute sweater with a flirty skirt, the scarf, and a pumpkin spice latte-to-go!

The Pumpkin Spice Sweater comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Standard with an alpha layer

Unlike the skirt, the scarf is not attached, so you can remove it for a different look.

A texture-change HUD is included with 4 designs for the sweater, and 4 gingham patterns for the skirt and scarf.

The pumpkin spice latte comes in a venti! ūüėé

The Jerky Turkey Hunt runs through November 30th. Just find the orange feather and buy it for 1L to grab your gifts.

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.¬†ūüźĪ

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! ūüėÄ
