On the Finale Couture Display

You’ll find the Miranda Tan Outfit that includes the boho styled suede top and matching jeans as well as a rope belt.  The belt is not shown on my avatar as the pose I am in interfered with it, but it is really a very cute addition.  This whole outfit is just 10L!

  • Belleza Venus, Isis & Freya
  • Belt also included but not shown (my pose interfered with it!)

Kiss Me Maybe

Free Kisses Maybe_002

I was exploring The Wash sim after doing my shopping… checking out the carnival and I found a kissing booth and couldn’t resist checking it out. The pose puts you in position inside with your hands sort of over your mouth as if to say “no kisses today!” which I found amusing, but fitting because I was wearing a cute pair of “Kiss me” hawt pants from Roped Passion’s that had other ideas in mind!

Check it out!

You’ll want these hawt pants for yourself. I’ve included a picture of the front and the back, just so you can see how cute they are! I may not be handing out kisses at the kissing booth… but these hawt pants have their own ideas! And they were only 10L at the Roped Passion’s Cart at the Cart Wash Sale!

6 Pants Choices:

  • All you can eat Hawt Pants
  • Binge Watching Hawt Pants
  • In Case of Emergency Hawt Pants
  • Kiss This Hawt Pants (shown)
  • Slippery When Wet Hawt Pants
  • Spank Itself Hawt Pants

Sizes available for each:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Add a splash of color!

I wanted to add some color (and Pride) to my outfit and stopped by the Luminesse Cart to pick up the rainbow bracelets you see in my pictures. These too are only 10L and are resizeable too! I think they are a perfect addition to my outfit and highlight something that is important to me, so I was happy to find them at the Luminesse cart among the other pretty baubles! Pick up your Pride and show it off today! Of course if you just like rainbows that works too 😉

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride Together With You

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride
Happy Holidays, Fabulouses!  After a day of shopping at the Cart Wash sale, Ripley and I celebrated the arrival of winter with a sleigh ride at Pandora Resort.  The snowy landscape reminded me of the white Christmases I enjoyed when I was growing up.  Ripley had a blast trying to retrieve snowballs that I tossed his way….and he kept losing them in the snowbank!

Chic Sweater Set

My golden-hued sweater from Classy Chics was one of my Cart Wash discoveries.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a great place to pick up some budget-friendly goodies for yourself.  The sale runs until January 4th, so you still have time to scoop up some finds… all for only 10L each! Featuring a bright, argyle pattern in a short, cropped jacket style, this long-sleeved knitted top coordinates with the undershirt beautifully.  The texture on the white top, and its cute bow are simply adorable!  If gold is not your color, the set also includes more seasonal red and green options.  The tops are all Maitreya appliers, and worked beautifully with my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  These white capris, also a Maitreya applier, are part of the Classy Chic package from the Cart Wash.  For only 10L, you get a complete outfit!  Happy dance time!
Angel Earrings

Silver and Gold

‘Tis the season for silver and gold, and Luminesse has you covered with these exquisite angel Christabelle Yvelle earrings for only 10L at the Cart Wash sale.  With ruby centers, golden accents, crystal gems, and silvery wings, these delicate baubles reflect the spirit of the season.  I just love a pair of dangling earrings, don’t you?

Sweets for Santa

Ripley and I are off to finish baking cookies to set out for Santa tonight.  After the “Cookie Incident,” in which a certain canine, who shall remain nameless, decided to sample from the Big Guy’s platter, we have some catching up to do.  I hope you enjoy a relaxing evening, and would like to wish Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate.  Until next time, dear readers, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley, the Cookie Inspector)

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Daydreaming

Day Dreaming

In real life it’s sweltering where I live today. Thankfully in second life it’s much cooler… and I can daydream a little. I got a notice from Pure Poison that they had a new Gacha Group gift out and was really excited. I always love the FREE spin on the group gacha… part of the fun is the surprise of what you will get. The group is FREE to join, so the pair of shoes won’t cost you a single Linden, and this set of Khyrah heels is just divine. You get one FREE spin per avatar, and that will get you a pair of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. If you want additional shoes, they are only 50L per spin on the non-gift gacha machine.

I landed a beautiful yellow pair and I really love the detailing on these heels by Pure Poison. I included the vendor advertisement at the end of my post so you could see the other colors available as well as get a close-up of the heels.

I wanted to pair my new heels with a pretty dress, and found just what I was looking for at the Cart Wash Sale. I picked up this pretty maxi dress by Lilbit Sass for only 10L. It is breezy and beautiful and the fit is perfect. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza too.

Day Dreaming 2

If you haven’t stopped by Hairology yet, you still have time. It runs until June 30th. I highly recommend you pick up all the cakes there! There are so many pretty FREE gifts! [e] elikatira has out a cake and inside is two gift hairs in exclusive colors. I am showing you “Libby” in the pictures above. You don’t need a group… the hair is completely FREE. Just click the cake and it’s yours!

Loki showed you one of the 10L offerings from the Luminess Cart [here] earlier, but there are several pretty items for us ladies too. I found a pretty pastel pendant that looked lovely with my outfit and picked it up to finish off my soft summery look. It has a little cherub relaxing on the disk… looking like he is daydreaming… which is exactly the mood I was in this afternoon. 🙂

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex 😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

This Librarian is the Lady in Black.

Hello and happy Thursday! I’m back with a few more Womenstuff Hunt gifts! Yayyy!

ladyinblack_001

My sexy, black, pencil skirt dress is from CuCu Clothes, and I think it fits nicely into my sexy Librarian folder 😉 It makes me think that I’ve had a long day of being professional, and now that work is over, I just feel like unbuttoning a few buttons on my top. I know you guys out there can relate if you have to wear a button up shirt all day. This skin-tight dress comes in standard sized fitmesh, as well as fitmesh versions for Bellezza, Maitreya and SLink bodies. Best of all, it is a free Womenstuff Hunt prize, you just have to find the ever familiar red t-shirt hunt object, and the hint is “This gift is as black as this Harley”. 

ladyinblack_002

Needing a little bit of sparkle to go with my look, I headed over to Luminesse to hunt for their Womenstuff prize. For only L$1, when you find the red t-shirt, you will receive the Delyse Byzantium Gold Necklace and Earrings set. The necklace works so nicely with the neckline of my dress, and I just love the purple bows 🙂 Here’s the hint to help you out “I love summer! Shorts and pretty dresses. Cute sandals and BellyGems. Have you seen Tui? You’ll find her upstairs. I like the purple and blue one!”

As has been mentioned in previous Womenstuff Hunt posts, the hunt runs until the end of the month, so you still have loads of time. Here is the Hunt page link, with a complete list of all participating stores, their LM’s and hints.

Hope you all enjoy the end of your work week, the weekend is in sight! LOL. Until next time, TTFN.

Ruby in Luminescence at Nightfall

Sometimes… the beauty of the world just makes your heart stop. Just for a moment. Because you have to take a moment to really see it as it is, and in order to do that… everything has to stop, even you. The world keeps turning of course, but you can’t seem to turn with it. Because you’ve paused… breathless and waiting, teetering on that edge of luminescent beauty…

Ruby at Nightfall 2

We’re teetering on the edge now… the threshold of the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. New beginnings, new days, and fresh starts. Things are ending… but new things are beginning. There are a few things ending here in Second Life that it’s not too late for you to catch before the New Year begins.

First, drop by the Christmas Under the Tree Event. It runs until December 31 and there are a ton of beautiful gifts under the tree along with terrific shopping opportunities all in one place. My lovely Knit Sweater and Casual Leggings (both in black) by [Ruby] were two of the numerous FREE gifts I found under the tree, no group required. Like many of the gifts, they are fully mesh in multiple sizes to fit most avatars, and the details are just lovely. And if you are looking for decor, or men’s wear, there were FREE gifts of that type under the tree at the event as well!

Ruby at Nightfall 1

The Cart Sale is still on of course and running full swing! I picked up this stunning necklace to add a little color to my all black scheme from the Luminesse Jewelry Cart. It is called Smokin Rose Pendant and is simply perfect. Like all Cart Sale merchandise it was only a mere 10L!

Ruby at Nightfall 3

I also want to mention that it’s not too late to pick up any last minute items from the Peace on Earth Hunt if you haven’t finished up your hunting yet. You have until January 9th to pick up your FREE prizes from this hunt. My Laina boots by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes were a FREE POE8 prize, generously offered up by this creator. Don’t worry, if boots are not your thing, you should still stop by… there was a set of pretty heels in the POE8 globe with the boots as well!

Seahorses in Fall

Seahorse

Happy Saturday Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Even though we recently had a Free Hair Day on the blog, in my Second Life, there is no such thing as too much hair! I am certain I’m not alone in this. With that in mind, Besom recently put out a new Group Gift hairstyle called Bellinia.

The fanciful name fits this FREE hairstyle from Besom very well. It’s a lush long style with feathery waves. The Besom group is FREE to join, and well worth the effort. You’ll find previous group gifts still available, as well as a group only Midnight Mania Board at the Besom main location. Not to mention the gift is a fatpack, which means it includes every color option available! I have to admit, I felt very mermaid-like with this gorgeous hair, so the FREE gift Luminesse has out at the current round of SWANK is kind of perfect to show with it.

There are always great finds at SWANK, and the Luminesse gift is fabulous to say the least. This specific gift does not require you to wear any group tags, just stop by the SWANK event and pick it up for FREE. The gift includes this beach-y necklace shown, and a matching pair of earrings. Even though most of us don’t think of seahorses as typical for fall accessories, I think the bold colors are great for any season. Besides, this is Second Life, just about anything goes!

So I’ve got a new hairstyle, and some bling, time to get the nails done! Nail Me! has the perfect solution, as they often do. The November Group Gift at Nail Me! is a colorful set of paisley printed nails that are too pretty to miss out on. This group gift is completely FREE, and the Nail Me! group is FREE to join. So that you can see all of the beautiful vibrant colors in this nail palette, I’ve included the vendor photo below.

Entice at the Luminesse Cart

Entice Luminess

The Heat Wave event is going, and there really is something for everyone at this event. The Luminesse Cart has some gorgeous jewelry for both men and women. There’s nothing like a great statement piece of jewelry to make a great look into a fantastic one. You’ll find everything from bangles to belts at the Luminesse Cart. I think these blue and purple gemstones are stunning on, and for just 10 lindens at the Luminesse Cart, they are irresistible! So stop by the Luminesse Cart and take advantage of the perfect opportunity to fill your jewelry box!

Luminesse Cart

Do any of you remember when Demi Moore cut off all her hair in the early ’90s and totally rocked what looked like men’s trousers with suspenders, like in the movie Ghost? I remember thinking that was the coolest thing ever, to look completely sexy and feminine with short hair and masculine clothing. That’s how I feel in this Lucky Board outfit from Entice. The bra-top, and pants combo with suspenders is fully mesh and anyone can get it for FREE just by waiting for your letter.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
