Cute Curvy Classy

Cute Curvy Classy

Pastel Dream

Have you ever had rainbow ice cream before? More specifically Paddle Pop rainbow ice cream? It was my favorite growing up (the only flavor of ice cream I’d consume actually) and one look at this pretty pastel offering from Glasgow Grin had me nostalgic for those days all over again. Personally, I’ve always found pastel shades to have a rather dreamy quality about them and when they’ve been mixed together so artfully I find them quite irresistible. Such was the case for the Cutey Dress that’s out right now at Glasgow Grin for the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2. This comfy sweater dress comes in sizes for ebody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass) and Maitreya mesh bodies as well as one standard mesh size for those of us classic avatars. I’m wearing the standard mesh size in the picture above and was pretty pleased with the alpha layer that’s provided as it helped with the fit quite nicely. Cute, curvy, classy indeed! All prizes in the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 are for 1L and the hunt runs till the 31st of January.

Accessorize

Did you guys make New Year resolutions? It’s a little dorky I know but I made a couple for Second Life as well and one of which is to try to pay more attention to the little details when putting together outfits. The other is to clean out the inventory but we’ll see how well that goes. Anyway, I’m on Oxide’s mailing list and discovered that they’ve put out a great pair of hooped earrings for their sub-o members. You can never go wrong with this classic design (especially when wearing a shorter hairstyle) and this well-made pair from Oxide come with a color change hud as well. If you’re not in the mood to stick to gold there are nine other colors to choose from as well. Some other perks of being in Oxide’s sub-o group is that you’ll have access to past sub-o gifts as well (that you can snap up for free) and of course it doesn’t take up those precious group slots so it’s certainly worth checking out.

All nice and manicured

If you’ve been following the blog closely, you’d have seen that some Fabulously Free in SL group gifts is being changed out. It’s really exciting to see what our generous designers have in store for us next! Needless to say, I snapped up the new manicure and pedicure sets from Hello Dave in a jiffy and am wearing the Fairy French set in the picture above. I love the clean, glossy colors and truth be told its stores like Hello Dave that make getting Slink hands really worth it. Hello Dave nails are compatible with Slink hands and hands using the Omega system. To add this set to your inventory for free, simply wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag or if you’re not in the group yet copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer, hit enter and click on the link, secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . As always the group is free to join! If you’re still not convinced, click {HERE} for a clearer picture on these gorgeous nail sets.

New face for a new year

Last but not least I stopped by 7 Deadly s{K}ins to pick up their January group gift. Carson blogged about the men’s gift {HERE} and I’m happy to report that the gift for ladies is packed full of goodies as well. In the gift package you’ll get:

  • Classic skins in seven tones (caramel, cotton, oak, pineapple, sand, taupe, and walnut)
  • Omega body appliers in the tones listed above
  • Omega head appliers in the tones listed above
  • Slink appliers
  • Tango and Phatazz appliers
  • 2 shapes

7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group join fee of 225L but as you can see it’s well worth the lindens. Not only are their gifts generous, but the faces on their skins are always so gorgeous.

That’s a wrap! I’ve still got a hankering for some rainbow ice cream but luckily it’s not too late to skip on over to the corner store. Catch you on the flip side guys!

Hunting for Frosting.

I made a couple stops along the trail of the Frosting Hunt and found a couple of gems to share with you. My first stop was Prism, where I picked up my outfit. It includes this excellent pair of suede pants and the lovely off the shoulder pink sweater. Each piece is separate and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer. For just 1L and a little hunting time to find the snowflake, this gem of an outfit can be yours.

Sitting pretty.

I also stopped by Kitty Creations because I was in need of a furniture pick-me-up. The Frosting Hunt prize there is this lovely braided rug as well as this nicely patterned black ottoman which includes quite a few very nice unisex sits. The rug is copiable, but the ottoman is no copy. However for only 1L, if you want more than one of this gorgeous ottoman, it won’t break the bank to hunt down the snowflake and buy more than one copy of this Frosting Hunt prize at Kitty Creations.

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

Midnight Lake_002

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

The Morning After…

snapshot3_001f

But First… Coffee

I love the holidays… but sometimes what I love most is when they’re over! This morning, I was so tired that I couldn’t handle the thought of getting dressed until I had consumed an entire pot of coffee.

And even then, I still didn’t have the energy for pants.

A Poor Attempt at Getting Dressed

So basically, all I managed to put on today was this comfy sweater from WICKED, which you can pick up for free until December 31st as part of the EnMESHed Into Christmas (EIC) Hunt. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L), as well as one for FITMESH. You’ll be looking for a little Santa hat.

Speaking of Santa hats, Christmas may be over, but you can still pick up this cute hair and hat from *ARGRACE* until December 31st. It comes with a fatpack of colors, and is set out as a free group gift (although I was able to get the gift without joining the free group… shhh). There is also a version for men, which Carson has modeled several times, most recently here.

YAWN… that’s enough work for today. I think it’s time for a nap.

It’s an 8bit Christmas

8 Bit Christmas

Hunting time again.

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s the weekend once again and that means it’s time to dig into more hunts. I’ve been trying out a few this past week and aside from getting mixed up and turned around (happened quite a bit, unfortunately) my loot bag has been stuffed to the brim with goodies. One such example is the beautifully quirky 8bit Christmas dress that’s out from Eclectic Stars for the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt. If you’ve read Pru’s post {HERE} Eclectic Stars carries a wide range of unique and nerdy clothing and furniture pieces and the 8bit Christmas dress is no exception. True to its name the dress features cute pixel Santas, reindeers, Christmas trees and candy canes and gave me quite the nostalgic kick for the old video games I used to play (Pac-Man!) Coupled with the vivid Christmas-y color scheme of greens and reds you’ll surely have a great dress for this season. The 8bit Christmas dress comes in 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer to help with the fit as well as sizing for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. Prizes in the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt costs 1L but if you’d rather not poke around the store you can buy the prize for 25L from the mistletoe prize prim. Personally, I’d take some time to peruse the items in Eclectic Stars as they do have a free no group needed advent calendar up, not to mention a Midnight Mania board and their free FabFree group gift! Curious to see what that is? Take a peek at Julianna’s post {HERE}

Tis the season…

To join groups for free! Moon hair store has set their group join fee to 0L and they have a wide range of group gifts out for you to pounce on. I’ve been watching this store for a while because of their elegantly casually hairstyles and beautiful hair colors and was pretty pleased to have discovered this free join period. Pictured is the Mias La II which is but one of many group gifts available. While I was partial to the dusty light purple version of this hairstyle there are nine other out of the ordinary colors to choose from an easy to use Hud that’s included in the gift package. Once you’re in the group, you can take advantage of group only Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Mania board. I’m not sure when Moon’s free group join exercise will end so join up soon.

This glittery Christmas

The holiday season is a good excuse for glitter and since I love shiny things and shoes from Baby Monkey I zoomed right over to the store when I saw that they’ve generously set out a gift for the Fabulously Free in SL group. As you well know the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join and if you’re not a member yet you can copy and paste the following link into the main chat of your SL viewer and click on the link when it pops up on local. The link is: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . Welcome to the group, please grab your free shoes. Classic pumps are a staple in any shoe collection and these come in six (you read that right) beautiful glittery colors. Just click on the hud provided in the gift package and have fun matching your shoes to your outfit. The Glitter Pumps come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. When you’re done grabbing your free group gift, check out the no group needed lucky letter chairs (two for guys as well) and the advent tree that’s set out at the Baby Monkey Mainstore!

8 Bit Christmas headshotThe search is still on!

In my last post {HERE} I said that two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2. If you guessed that the other store is 7 Deadly s{K}ins then you’re right and they’re offering the Amina skin shown above. You can get sweet-faced Amina for 0L by hunting out the snowflake at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins main store and once you’ve found it be ready to be in for a treat. The prize package contains the Amina classic skin in six skin tones (caramel shown) with cleavage/no cleavage options. Four skin tones (caramel, fudge, sand and taupe) have cluster packages that include appliers for Banned, Wowmeh, Tango, Phatazz and Slink Hands and Feet whereas appliers for Tango, Pthatazz and Slink Hands and Feet are provided for the skin tone Powder. It’s a very generous and top quality gift but I’ve found that it’s par for course for 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you’re not a group member, do think about joining up as the store is holding a group only advent and the join fee for the group is free.

I also mentioned…

That Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and that their gift was a trio of beautiful Ice Dream Eyes. I’ve been wearing the blue pair the entire week and decided to switch up to the green pair for this picture. The colors are very stunning and I love the snowy glaze on these green peepers just as much as I love them on the blue. If you haven’t picked up this lovely prize, it’s available for free when you find the snowflake at the Mesange main store. Prize package includes system layer eyes, mesh eyes and Genesis and Omega System huds.

If you’ve missed the coverage for the Women Only Hunt 2, here’s a rundown:

Gotta get back to those hunts now. Have fun on your weekend dear readers!

Winter Memories

Trucking

Memories.

I learned how to drive on an ancient stick shift truck much like the one in this picture. At least that’s how it seems in the mind’s eye of my inner child. It had a wooden bed and holes in the floor board and I was 15 1/2 and it was winter and I was certain I would not survive the cold as there was no heat in that thing. Yet somehow I managed to grow a fondness for those first experiences. So when I put together my ensemble, I had to capture a picture in front of this pick-up at Rosemoor Sim to share with you.

Trucking 2

The shirt.

I picked up my holiday shirt (it’s an applier T-shirt, and I adore applier shirts as they fit any body shape) for FREE from House of Ruby. The Advent Calendar Hunt is on right now, and House of Ruby is participating. Just hunt down the little candle and this gift is yours for 0L.  You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega.

I needed a scarf!

It was cold outside! But I found a free scarf! If you haven’t stopped by Prism to pick up the advent gifts there, don’t despair. It’s not too late. You can only pick up one gift per day, but you can choose any day (as long as it’s already passed). So in other words if you go today, you could choose any ONE of days 1 through 7. So if you like my scarf you can wear your FREE Prism group tag today and choose day 2 to pick it up! It’s rigged mesh, so it will fit and flow with your body!

One more thing to top it off!

Don’t forget about the Alice Project Advent Calendar! Every day a FREE to all gift hair is being set out, but if you are a member of the VIP group (it is 750 to join) you also get an additional gift. 750 seems steep until you realize you’ll be getting an extra 24 hairs and since Alice Project does these gift projects rather frequently, stay in the group and you’ll be set for the next time they hand out extra gifts to VIP members (which seems to be pretty often in my experience).

I’m wearing Jenn from a couple of days ago. Unlike the daily FREE gifts, the VIP gifts are available to VIP members throughout the advent season, so if you miss a day, you can still pick it up later, as long as you get there by the 24th.

Lush

Lush

Just too lush…

Ages ago, a friend of mine teleported me to a sim called Elysion. Membership was required to visit, and he paid the fee of 650 Linden and we walked around a bit, but I didn’t get to do much exploring. I never left the group because of the fee, but I hadn’t been back to the sim because of my busy schedule, despite its promise of a lush adult atmosphere. (Don’t worry, I promise this is a PG-13 post 😉 )

Fantasy cream?

I had just finished up a few stops along the trail of the Fantasy Cream Hunt and had come up with a prize that I was aching to show off. I had found this gorgeous not-quite-necklace — but definitely a come hither neckline apparel showpiece — by EvelineInTheBox which is their prize for the Hunt for just 1L if you find the little cup of cream. The gold interwoven chains are each connected by tiny red beads, and the entire thing is resizable for the perfect fit. I knew that if I could find the perfect dress… I’d be ready to explore that mysterious oasis I now consider Elysion.

Woman with the red dress on.

It turned out that I found what I was looking for at The Beautiful Ones. Right now you can pick up the Sarah group gift there one of two ways. It is out as a FREE group gift (just pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be immediately refunded to you). The group join fee is a mere 25 Linden. OR if you don’t have a lot of group space, you can pick up this beautiful applier dress with rigged mesh skirt panels for just 10L (no group space required).

Appliers included: System Layers, Omega and TMP

The Sarah dress also comes with a color change hud with 6 color choices. I’m showing you the dress in red (it matched those lovely and delicate red beads on my neck piece I was telling you about), but with 6 color choices, this is a dress that is versatile.

All decked out.

Now that I was all decked out, it was time to make my visit. I found Elysion prepared for winter… and while there were visitors scattered here and there, no one stopped to disturb me. I wandered the paths and eventually ended up upon the terrace of a stone cottage where I took my picture overlooking the pines next to a sheer curtain. Don’t worry, the fireplace is not too far away… I’ll warm up in time to be off to find more freebies.

Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold!

Living in an Igloo

The Menstuff Hunt is coming to an end.

I didn’t want to get left out in the cold when it came to getting in on the goods with the Menstuff Hunt… after all, the hunt ends November 30th, but somehow I ended up sitting on ice in a simful of penguins. I blame Astrid’s sense of direction. At least the penguins are friendly and the view of the Northern Lights is spectacular. Come to think of it… I don’t have that much to complain about after all. The trip up here was actually worth it. The sim is called Lovea and this little icy haven is outside of a small art studio. It’s well worth visiting to snap a few photos.

I needed igloo appropriate clothes.

I figure this red vest is igloo appropriate right? It’s also a FREE Menstuff Hunt gift from Birth and includes three different undershirt options. The shirt and vest are mesh and come separate so you can pick which shirt you will pair with the red vest. You get three choices of shirt: black, grey (pictured), and white. It comes in all the standard sizes and has its own alpha layer.

Living in an Igloo 2

It’ll put hair on ya.

I remember various relatives telling me when I was growing up that different foods or activities would “put hair on my chest.” Thankfully it doesn’t work that way… but finding the iconic blue Menstuff Hunt shirt at Nivaro will put hair on your face!

Find the FREE gift there and you’ll be getting a fatpack of their Natural and Eldorado beards.

The package includes system layers of:

  • The El Dorado  in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable
  • The Natural (shown) in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable

I think I’ll try to find a warmer locale for my next traveling venture… but we’ll see what Astrid has in mind. Till then, I have reading to do. Have a great afternoon!

Polkadot

Polkadot

I have mentioned before that November is prime Hunting season if you are looking for clothes to fill your wardrobe. And one of my favorite stores for lingerie and intimate apparel has joined in the Hunts, by offering a 1L gift as part of the Master’s of Style Hunt.

Hunting time…

For just 1L and a little hunting time down at the House of Ruby main-store, these Polkadot briefs can be yours to add to your ever expanding wardrobe, gentlemen.

What do you get?

If you’re worried about rather or not this gift will fit you, never fear. I have all the details. You’ll be getting the following layers:

  • Layer for system avatars
  • Slink Hud for mesh bodies
  • Omega Hud for mesh bodies

Polkadot 2

More hunts?

I wasn’t finished for the day though. I had one more hunt I wanted to finish up with for the evening. If you haven’t been checking out all the goodies in store for you with the Menstuff Hunt, do hurry. It ends November 30th, and you won’t want to miss out.

I stopped by Glint and picked up their 1L prize, which is this red crystal necklace for men. It is resizable and nicely detailed and added a terrific finishing touch to what I was wearing.

Until next time!

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
