Drink it Up

Drink it Up

Sometimes all you need for a great outfit in SL is some cute and fun accessories.  I love chasing down the little extras that make SL looks fun, and I found a few free ones to keep you looking fresh!

Fair Hair

You may have heard that The Hair Fair is going on right now, and boy oh boy is it full of goodness.  A portion of all sales goes to Wigs for Kids, so it’s not just fun but aiming to do some good in the world.  There are also some great free gifts offered up by some of the creators!  I stopped at the Ade booth and there I came across this sleek bob which comes in a full fatpack of fun colours as well as a styler HUD.  They also put out these very on-trend shades out too for free, and I’m having a great time looking imperiously over the rim at people!

Catching Tears

There’s a new free group gift over at Jackalope too, and it’s this amusing little milk carton of “boy tears”.  Don’t you fret though, there’s also a carton of “girl tears” included.  To grab this amusing little addition, just join the Jackalope group for free and click on the vendor by the front desk!

Mhhhhmmm!

Ready for my Close Up

Ready for my Close Up

I’m ready for my closeup today!  It’s a lovely Saturday in my part of the world, and October is creeping up on us, filled with all its delights.  I’m only slightly inching toward the realms of the creepy and autumnal, so I won’t toss you into the deep end quite yet.  Anyway, I’ll just be quiet and get to the gifts!

There’s More?

I mentioned the other day that SaNaRae is having an anniversary round, and there are plenty of free gifts to be had.  I picked up a few more when I was there that I really wanted to show you!  My eyes are a bit of a dark departure (this is the dipping my toe into the autumnal I was referring to, by the way), but I think they’re quite lovely!  They’re a free gift by Mudskin and come with a few other colour options.  They have appliers for Catwa and Lelutka as well as mesh eyes that you can reposition.  The striking turquoise eyeshadow is a quite generous gift by Zibska and has a pile of different colour options in the HUD.  This comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega, and LAQ as well as tattoo layers for system heads.   And finally, my oh so lovely earrings by Oxide are yet another gift I picked up at SaNaRae, and I highly enjoy the delicate starriness of it all!  Grab all your gifts by joining the SaNaRae group for free!

More Hair!

I found another lovely hair offering over at the Hair Fair!  I love the long, sleek layers (that I wish I could muster in RL) that are gifted to us for free by enVOGUE.  Hop your way over to the Hair Fair for a full fatpack of daring and natural hues.  Can’t say no to that!

Enjoy all the Autumn!

I love me some FREE latex.  I know it’s not everyone’s favourite look, but some days I think if you need to make a striking impression, then latex is the way to go.  There is a lot of latex in SL in general, but finding some that shines in that pleasing way can be a difficult task.  Finding some that shines in a pleasing way for free is almost impossible, but I’ve managed it! Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

The D’eVil Inside

I know I’ve sung the praises of D’eVil a bunch of times before, but really I can never get over the quality of the work, and the shininess of the latex is just to die for.  If you’ve never been before, then I highly suggest you stop by the shop because EVERYTHING is completely free there.  Yup.  Everything.  You never know what you might find – there are even some really nice shoes if you’re not into the whole outfit look!  Anyway, the Aroha dress is the most recent offering at D’eVil and comes in three parts – the cropped top, the corset and the long skirt.  It comes with a texturing HUD to meet all your colour and opacity needs!  Such fun!  The clothing at D’eVil is all sized for Maitreya bodies.

It’s Limited!

You may have noticed some of the coverage from Limt8 on the blog, and I’m showing off two more fun things that are available there:  My lipstick is a free gift from Lisa Walker.  There are a bunch of different colour options on the HUD, and it comes with appliers for Catwa and Lelutka.   My backdrop today is the free gift from Foxcity, and there are two different colour options in the gift box!  Join the Limit8 group for free to pick up a giant pile of awesomeness!

HAIR FAIR!

I’m sure you’ve heard all the buzz across the grid about Hair Fair!  Julianna mentioned the other day one of her finds, and I picked some coolness up too.  Most designers have a lovely free (or 1L) little gift out for you, so you’ll end up stocking up on awesome hair looks to last you for quite some time.  I am showing off the gift from Astrology, which has several different colour options in the HUD.  Nice right?  No need to join a group, just fight through the lag and pick up all the presents!  It’s totally worth it!

Shine on, you crazy diamonds!

Good morning Fabulouses!

Wandering Leaf

This month at The Arcade Gacha, Decoy released the sweetest gacha set called Wandering Leaf.  This set is just 50L per play and includes 15 commons and 2 rares with texture change HUDS.  Wandering Leaf is rigged for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and has the loveliest gold leaf detailing!  I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the colours in the set, but I really liked the pink with the brown as shown in the ad (which I have included below).

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

le 4 Juillet

le 4 Juillet

Growing up, one of my favorite classes in high school was French, and I had an amazing French teacher who was French-born. We would celebrate Bastille Day on July 14th, and my French teacher was always great about recognizing both the 4th of July as well as Bastille day, and we would have celebrations for both as she would teach us the importance of both holidays and how they were similar and how they were different. I admired her a lot.

I thought of her today as I stopped on my gift rounds and put together my outfit. I thought of her as I thought about the importance of fighting for human rights, freedom, and things we believe in. She was an inspiration to me. So this post is for her… my le 4 Juillet!

Pick up your heels!

Graffitiwear put out two really terrific gifts for the month of July, so pick up your heels and get down to the store to pick them up! If you are already a subscriber member, you should have received the free July Subscriber gift, which is this great set of Strappy Blue heels. They come in a box that includes heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet, as well as a pair that says “Map” that I’m not familiar with. If you’re not a subscriber, just slab that board and the heels will be delivered to you!

A new dress!

My new dress is the July group gift. Just wear your Graffitiwear group tag and pick up this July dress which is perfect for any July celebration.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New hair too!

I’ve been showing you some of the great gifts from the Hair Fair here and here, and I’m back again with another great style. I love this edgy look from KoKoLoReS called “Sniper.” I think it’s super sexy, and it’s not only free but it comes in a fatpack of colors too!

Again I went to the cam area and shopped from there, using the trick that I told you about in my post here to be able to select things from long distances. I picked up this style and was thrilled!

Happy cam shopping at the Hair Fair! There are so many wonderful gifts to be had!

Let Your Colors Burst

Vision

Hello Fabulouses!  I have a quick post for you today, featuring a completely free, bustier from ViSion Clothing Company.  With a soft pink, lavender and gold floral pattern splashed across a dark background, this colorful, sexy top will set off your curves in style.  I really like the eye-catching details of the silver rivet accents and the black criss-cross side straps.  Since the misty morning air was cool, I decided to slip on a leather cropped jacket, but as the day heats up, I plan to remove it, and soak up some sunshine.  Either way, this top looks fantastic, and so will you!  Best of all, the ViSion Clothing Company group has no join fee, so you can scoop up this bustier for free.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Although it’s above our 75L maximum limit, I thought it was worth mentioning that my beaded necklace from Indulge Temptation is currently 50% off.  In fact, every item in the store is 50% off until July 10th, so if you are looking to add some reasonably priced baubles to your inventory, you might want to journey over to IT! and take a peek around.

Baby, You’re a Firework…

Although I enjoy Fourth of July celebrations, I dread them as well, because poor Ripley is terrified of the sound of fireworks.  Last night, he paced my room, and spent some time cowering partly under my computer desk (poor boy doesn’t quite fit under it any more).  I’m sure the next couple of days will be challenging for him as neighbors celebrate Independence Day with firecrackers, Roman Candles, and Skyrockets. I know he’ll be glad to have this holiday behind us.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The New Color of Sexy

Shine

I’m still relaxing in my comfy chair. I’ve spent the morning sorting through old journals of my grandfather’s from World War II. He’s been gone for several years now, but I miss him and it’s been nice to travel down memory lane and learn a little more about his life. I haven’t changed out of my pajamas yet either… this great set of wine colored lingerie.

The new color of sexy…

Ashmoot has been putting out beautiful gifts each month, including this Long Shirt that is still out that Love blogged here. This month was no exception and you can pick up this gorgeous applier lingerie in burgundy as a free group gift (the group is free to join). It comes in appliers for System bodies, Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. I really fell in love with the lacy neckline and lace bodysuit of the one piece.

The Hair Fair is here!

The Hair Fair started yesterday! And we all know that not only does that mean money is raised for a great cause, but that creators are generous with lots of amazing and wonderful gifts for visitors. You can visit the Hair Fair website for more information here.

I picked up my luscious locks by enVogue by stopping at one of the cam shopping locations on the outskirts of the Hair Fair. These have been set up to allow you to cam shop. There is less lag and you can just cam in and look in the booths to pick out the items that you want.

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

I cammed away while I was in the corner of the Foils Cam Sim and happened to see the enVogue booth and picked up the gift there for just 1L. When I opened it, I was thrilled with the gift inside. This style, called Beyonce, includes a hud for a fatpack of colors and has a beautiful flow and realistic texture. It was well worth my camming and crowd fighting time!
